Major Leading Indicator In Free Fall!

  • We are getting to be point where the Illuminists can no longer maintain their charade. They have manipulated the economy, stock, treasury, currency… markets. But in the end, the market always win. They know that and is simply abiding their time and waiting for the opportune moment to pull the plug. I seriously doubt things can go on as they are past 2010. Economic collapse and war ahead!
     
    Major leading indicator in free fall!
    In my July 14 Money and Markets column, I explained how the Economic Cycle Research Institute’s (ECRI) Weekly Leading Index confirmed my bearish forecast. Back then, the index’s growth rate was minus 8.3 percent. And as you can see in the chart below, it is continuing to freefall — tumbling to minus 10.3 percent for the week ending July 30
      
    Since the year-over-year percentage change sliced through the zero line at the end of May, it has quickly fallen to levels signaling a very high risk of recession. What’s more, it has never fallen as low as its current reading without the economy already in — or on its way to — a recession.
      
    In addition to the ECRI weekly indicator’s very clear message, I see six more reasons that back up my argument for a double-dip recession hitting the U.S.:
     
    First, the economic rebound since March 2009 was bought with unprecedented fiscal and monetary stimulus. There has not been a real, market-generated recovery.
     
    Second, despite the huge sums of taxpayer money and serial bailouts, the rebound is the weakest on record.
     
    Third, at least 80 percent of this huge stimulus program has been used up. There isn’t much left to keep the economic engines running.
     
    Fourth, aside from government debt, the wheels of credit creation are still sputtering. And that’s a problem, since former recoveries have always been driven by credit growth.
      
    Fifth, the labor market is still in dire straits — and so is consumer spending. Friday’s disappointing payroll report is a very strong hint that the labor market is again deteriorating.
     
    Following the ECRI data, this is not surprising. Historically, there has been a strong correlation between the ECRI weekly index and payroll numbers. Furthermore, I expect much weaker employment reports in the weeks and months to come.
     
    Sixth, the housing mess has not been cleaned up yet. I expect another huge wave of mortgage debt defaults, leading to another round of falling home prices and problems for the banking sector.
     
    All in all, the big economic picture is pretty grim. Indeed, the economy is at a crossroads here. Unfortunately, though, it seems to be heading down the recession path again.
      
    And since every recession in history has been accompanied by a severe stock bear market, my suggestion is clear: Make sure that your portfolio is protected from this wealth-destroying scenario.

Russia Deploys S-300 Systems in Abkhazia!

  • The Russian and Chinese know what is coming. They are also manoeuvring their military pieces into place. It is always better to position your pieces to prevent an attack, deter the enemy rather than respond after the attack.
     
  • I do not believe that the western US-NATO/EU-Israeli axis will attempt to take on the Russians in their eastern European front. It is not winnable. A more likely scenario: they will sacrifice Georgia and a few other eastern European countries (who are aligned with NATO-EU) to keep the Russians busy, while they go on the attack in the middle east, Latin America and Asia.
     
    Russian S-300 systems in Abkhazia threaten regional balance of forces – Georgia
    The deployment of S-300 air defense systems in Georgia’s breakaway region of Abkhazia threatens the balance of forces in the region, Georgia’s State Minister for Reintegration Temur Yakobashvili said on Wednesday. The commander of the Russian Air Force, Col. Gen Alexander Zelin announced earlier on Wednesday that Russia had deployed S-300 missiles in Abkhazia to protect the airspace of Abkhazia and South Ossetia in conjunction with other air defense means deployed by the Ground Forces.
     
    “This move primarily contradicts the cease-fire agreement [between Russia and Georgia] concluded on August 12 [2008],” Yakobashvili said in an interview with Novosti-Georgia news agency. “The deployment of this class of air defense systems is not only aimed against Georgia, it also changes the balance of forces in the region,” the Georgian minister said.
     
    Yakobashvili added that Russia’s actions were also aimed against NATO and said Georgia would protest the S-300 deployment in international organizations. Russia recognized Abkhazia and South Ossetia two weeks after
    a five-day war with Georgia in August 2008, which began when Georgian forces attacked South Ossetia in an attempt to bring it back under central control. Russia also signed earlier this year agreements with South Ossetia and Abkhazia on establishing permanent Russian military bases there.
     
    The military bases are located in Gudauta, Abkhazia, and in South Ossetia’s capital Tskhinvali. Each base hosts up to 1,700 servicemen, T-62 tanks, light armored vehicles, air defense systems and various aircraft. In response to Russia’s actions, Tbilisi accused Moscow of aggression and violation of international laws, severed diplomatic relations with Russia and declared Abkhazia and South Ossetia occupied territories.

Turbo-Charged Monsoon Confounds Forecasters! Pakistan Floods: Supercharged Jet Stream ‘Causing Flooding’! China Braces For More Floods As Heavy Rains Predicted !

Vodpod videos no longer available.

  • The abnormal floods in Pakistan and China does not look like they are abating. The jet stream is not behaving normally. It is affecting weather worldwide. HAARP in action??
      
    Turbo-charged monsoon confounds forecasters 
    Normally the jet stream is a giant loop of high speed winds that whip round the upper atmosphere, writes science correspondent Tom Clarke.
     
    The jet stream isn’t involved in day to day weather – it’s too high up – but because it pushes the atmosphere around it’s very important in steering large scale weather patterns below.
     
    The stream has split in two. One arm has gone north, another south. The patch in the middle is Russia’s drought. A circulating pattern of air has been sitting over Russia for far longer than normal, causing the extreme temperatures and wildfires they’ve had there.
     
    But what’s happening over Pakistan is even stranger. The southern arm of the Jet stream has looped down so far it has crossed over the Himalayas into north western Pakistan. Experts at the Met Office tell me this is very unusual.
     
    And the result is that the fast moving jets stream winds high up has helped suck the warm, wet, monsoon air even faster and higher into the atmosphere – and that has caused rains like no-one can remember. It has turbo charged the monsoon if you like. They’re not sure that’s ever happened before.
     
    Pakistan floods: supercharged jet stream ‘causing flooding’
    A highly-charged jet stream is contributing to the worse floods Pakistan has seen in decades, meteorologists have said.
      
    The jet stream, a massive ring of high speed winds, is moving quicker than usual over north western Pakistan, causing wet monsoon air to be sucked faster and higher into the atmosphere. The stream, which is normally too high to affect every day weather but does influence large scale weather patterns by shifting the atmosphere around, is “supercharging” the monsoon, leading to some of the heaviest rainfall in memory
      
    Scientists say the hyperactive jet stream is also causing deadly landslides in China and the drought in Russia, which is leading to wildfires. The stream has split in two with one section heading north over Russia and the other going south over the Himalayas into Pakistan. In Russia the stream is inhaling some of the country’s hottest temperatures on record and spreading them quickly, causing the fires. Experts say it is very unusual for the stream to head that far south.
     
    On Monday the United Nations rated the floods in Pakistan as the greatest humanitarian crisis in recent history with more people affected than the South-East Asian tsunami and the recent earthquakes in Kashmir and Haiti combined.
     
    Although the current 1,600 death toll in Pakistan represents a tiny fraction of the estimated 610,000 people killed in the three previous events, some two million more people – 13.8 million – have suffered losses requiring long or short-term help. Maurizio Giuliano, a spokesman for the UN Office for the Co-ordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said: “This disaster is worse than the tsunami, the 2005 Pakistan earthquake and the Haiti earthquake.”
      
    China braces for more floods as heavy rains predicted
    Forecasters warn water levels could rise further and cause more destruction as rescue teams continue search for survivors.
      
    Survivors of the landslides in north-western
    China are braced for further misery as forecasters predict more heavy rains. At least 1,117 people died when mud and debris swept through Zhouqu, in Gansu province, late on Saturday night and more than 600 are missing. There is little hope of finding more survivors among what are thought to be the hundreds who were buried alive in metres of sludge.
     
    The 10,000 rescue and relief workers are continuing to search for bodies but attention is turning to the threat of disease. Crews in protective suits have sprayed chemical disinfectant across the ground and over machinery. State media has reported numerous cases of dysentery and warned of a serious shortage of drinking water, with most local sources destroyed or polluted.
       …..
    There are concerns the barrier lake that has formed could overflow or burst, especially if there is further rain. Soldiers have been blasting explosives at the barrier to clear debris and help reduce water levels. Tens of thousands of people have been evacuated. Separately, a Chinese paper reported that residents along the north bank of the Yellow river in Henan province fear for their lives after heavy rain gouged holes in a newly built flood control dam.

WHO List Reveals Flu Advisors With Financial Ties to Pharma, Vaccine Manufacturers!

  • The WHO is a private organization with a hidden agenda. I seriously doubt the agenda is for the benefit of humanity. Who owns the WHO? Snakes!
     
    WHO list reveals flu advisors with financial ties to pharma, vaccine manufacturers
    (NaturalNews) After months of stalling, the World Health Organization (WHO) has finally revealed the names of key pandemic advisors who influenced its decision to declare a phase six pandemic last year — a decision that resulted in a financial windfall for vaccine manufacturers. As you’ll see here, that list includes at least five expert advisors received money from vaccine companies.
     
    Here’s who received money from Big Pharma and then influenced the WHO decision to declare a pandemic:
     
    Arnold Monto is a professor from the United States who has received money from virtually all the major vaccine manufacturers: GSK,
    Novartis, Roche, Baxter and Sanofi Pasteur. He has specifically been given grant money by Sanofi Pasteur to study influenza vaccines.
     
    Nancy Cox works for the US Centers for Disease Control, which already maintains a pro-vaccine stance while utterly ignoring the importance of vitamin D in halting
    infectious disease. Nancy took funds from the International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers and Associations (IFPMA) to conduct work on vaccines.
     
    John Wood works at Britain’s National Institute for Biological Standards and Control (NIBSC). They’ve taken money from Sanofi Pasteur, Novartis and several other
    companies focused on influenza vaccine research.
     
    Maria Zambon is a professor at the UK Health Protection Agency Centre for Infection. She has received money from Sanofi, Novartis, CSL,
    Baxter and GSK.
     
    Neil Ferguson is also a professor, and he has accepted money from
    Roche and GSK Biologicals.
     
    There may be more to this story, too: The financial ties explained here are merely the ones that these people chose to publicly disclose to
    WHO. There may yet be other ties that currently remain a secret and will have to be dug up by some determined reporter…
     
    What’s the problem with financial ties, anyway?
    Why does it matter that WHO advisors took money from vaccine companies? It’s simple: The decision to declare H1N1 swine flu to be a phase 6
    pandemic was made by the WHO under advisement from these very people who received money from vaccine companies. And that decision, we now know, resulted in a windfall of profits for the vaccine companies.
     
    Those profits, in turn, were burdened by the taxpayers whose expenditures were largely worthless because a huge portion of those vaccines are now expiring and have to be destroyed. The money was wasted, in other words.
     
    It all has the makings of a grand global con: The WHO enlists advisors with financial ties to the vaccine
    industry to decide whether a pandemic is under way and then conveniently follows their advice in making a decision that many health experts around the world have been questioning from the start. It all has the appearance of medical corruption, and it looks like WHO decisions are based more on politics than medical science.
     
    It was politically convenient, in other words, to declare a stage six pandemic. And if these WHO advisors have already received money from vaccine manufacturers, it’s certainly within the realm of possibility that they would soon be financially rewarded with yet more payoffs. (You scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours…)
     
    The appearance of corruption
    The unfortunate upshot of all this is that even if these WHO advisors are completely innocent, their financial ties still create the appearance of corruption. And that means
    the WHO is losing credibility that may compromise its integrity when a real pandemic comes along. If the world can’t trust the World Health Organization, in other words, then who should countries look to for real answers on pandemics and infectious disease?
     
    Sadly, even the
    CDC in the US has now clearly positioned itself as an “anti-nutrition, pro-vaccine” organization, too. Ignoring the huge importance of vitamin D and the support of the human immune system, many CDC experts have also either been on the payrolls of vaccine manufacturers or are looking to join Big Pharma when offered a job. The former head of the CDC, Dr. Julie Gerberding, was recently offered a position as the president of Merck’s vaccine division (http://www.naturalnews.com/027789_D…).
     
    The frustrating fact is that modern medicine has been subverted by Big Pharma. The vaccine industry practically runs the CDC and WHO — or at the very least, it heavily influences decisions by these two organizations. As a result, the so-called “scientific” decisions made by these organizations have very little to do with actual science but everything to do with protecting (and expanding) the profits of vaccine manufacturers.
     
    And when public health policy is decided based on corporate profits, the people will always suffer.

BS Alert ! AP Exclusive: Iran defiant in nuclear documents!

Can you smell it??

  • More war propaganda from the Illuminist owned MSM. These snakes are experts in propaganda, rewriting history and outright lies. Remember: subtlety and deception, disinformation, misinformation and negative information to skew perception of reality. Their doctrine is: as long as the public consensus accepts the lie as the truth, the lie is the truth. Again and again they will demonize their targets while promoting themselves as righteous victims!  The snakes are desperate for this war. A substantial portion of the sheeple is waking up!
      
    AP Exclusive: Iran defiant in nuclear documents
    VIENNA—As Iran and world powers prepare for new nuclear talks, letters by Tehran’s envoys to top international officials and shared with The Associated Press suggest major progress is unlikely, with Tehran combative and unlikely to offer any concessions. Two letters, both written late last month, reflect Iran’s apparent determination to continue the nuclear activities that have led to new rounds of U.N., EU, and U.S. sanctions in recent weeks over fears that Tehran might be seeking to develop nuclear arms.
     
    At the same time, world powers preparing to talk to Tehran are unwilling to cede ground on key demands concerning Iran’s uranium enrichment activities, dimming prospects that the new negotiations will ease tensions. Iran insists it want to enrich uranium only to make fuel for a planned reactor network and denies accusations that it will use the program to make fissile warhead material.

Report: Food Prices Already Starting to Skyrocket!

  • This looks like 2007/8 all over again. It will actually be alot worse. Quantitative Easing 2.0 is a foregone conclusion. At zero percent interest rate, the US economy is barely breathing. Despite all the stimulus, unemployment is stubbornly high. If we were to use real economic statistic (like from www.shadowstats.com) and not the US government’s lying propaganda, the picture is one of calamity. The FedRes’ only choice is the nuclear option of massive QE. Monetary policy is no longer viable at zero percent interest rate.
     
  • With massive QE, the USD will be toast. Food and commodities, especially agricultural commodities, will hyper-inflate. All the anomalous weather, drought, fire, freezing temperature and flood problems mean that prices will escalate much faster than 2007/8. The inflation camp is waiting for the warning signs of possible hyper-inflation. They may be getting it.
     
    Report: Food Prices Already Starting to Skyrocket
    Experts warn that overall food-price inflation is inevitable, as Wal-Mart reportedly has already hiked prices amid a recent jump in wheat prices and the failure of the Russian harvest.
     
    The most immediate impact will be felt in the price of bread and bakery products but other food items which make use of grain will also rise, according to analysis from Verdict research. This includes some meat products where grain is used as animal feed.
     
    Meanwhile, a recent JPMorgan survey of supermarket pricing in Virginia showed a 5.8 percent increase in average prices at Wal-Mart, which represents the most significant sequential increase since the inception of the study in January 2009, the Business Insider reported.
     
    The survey compared a 31 item like-kind basket at a Wal-Mart Supercenter, Kroger, Safeway, Harris Teeter, and Whole Foods, the Business Insider reported.
     
    Should wheat prices remain elevated for the next few months, shelf prices for many products could go up by 6.7 percent within a year, Verdict reported. Some items, such as croissants, could go up by as much as 11.1 percent.
     
    While the failure of the Russian wheat harvest has caused a temporary spike in prices, these high prices won’t last for long because of excess production in China and the United States. But global fundamentals are supportive of a long-term rise in the price of food, The U.K.’s Telegraph reported.
     
    At the moment there are just fewer than 7 billion mouths to feed around the world. The United Nations believes there will be more than 9 billion people by 2050.
     
    In fact, the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization forecasts that total world demand for agricultural products will jump 60 percent between now and 2030, rising much more rapidly than the population.
     
    This rapid increase is because the areas of the world where the population is rising the fastest are also the areas of the world that are moving out of poverty, the Telegraph reported.
     
    Demand for grains in emerging markets increases more than the population because of one simple fact – richer people eat more meat. This increases demand for grain feeds for livestock over and above that used for human consumption.
     
    Ironically, a wheat stockpile in India that could feed 210 million people for a year is starting to spoil because the government lacks enough warehouses to store it.
     
    According to a government estimate obtained by The Associated Press, 17.8 million metric tons of wheat are exposed to the elements — stored outdoors, under tarps in India’s pounding monsoon rains. The wheat could alleviate hunger in a nation where one in two children are malnourished.
