Here Comes the ECB with a “Bubble” Warning, After it Caused the Most Absurd Bond Bubble Ever

  • Here Comes the ECB with a “Bubble” Warning, After it Caused the Most Absurd Bond Bubble Ever
    by , https://wolfstreet.com/
    “The ECB cannot and should not turn a blind eye to risks to financial stability.”

    “Maintaining financial stability is about two things: First, it is about preventing the build-up of bubbles; second, it is about making the system more resilient,” said ECB Executive Board Member and Vice-Chair of the ECB’s Supervisory Board, Sabine Lautenschläger, today in a speech. It’s not often that central bankers are allowed to use the B-word in public, except when denying that bubbles exist, or when denying that they can be identified if they do exist.

    “Prices of several asset classes are influenced by the central bank’s policies,” she said. And these policies of the ECB include:

    * A negative interest rate policy (NIRP), with the ECB’s deposit rate a negative -0.4%;
    * An asset purchase program (QE) where the ECB buys government bonds, corporate bonds, asset backed securities, and covered bonds.

    These policies have driven yields of many government bonds and some corporate bonds into the negative. The ECB’s balance sheet has swollen with assets. Borrowing for some countries and companies has become essentially free. Asset prices have surged, including the prices of homes, stocks, bonds, commercial real estate, etc.

    Even at the riskiest end, junk bond yields dropped to a ludicrously low 2.1% by October 30 last year (ICE BofAML Euro High Yield Index Effective Yield), though they have lost some steam since (when bond yields fall, bond prices rise). These policies have triggered the most dizzyingly absurd corporate bond bubble ever.

Humans Beings on the Brink of IMMORTALITY, Top Scientist Claims

  • Revelation 9:6 New King James Version (NKJV)
    6 In those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will desire to die, and death will flee from them.
  • Humans Beings on the Brink of IMMORTALITY, Top Scientist Claims
    by Rachel O’Donoghue, https://www.dailystar.co.uk/
    HUMAN beings becoming immortal is a step closer following the launch of a new start-up.

    Dr Ian Pearson has previously said people will have the ability to “not die” by 2050 – just over 30 years from now. Two of the methods he said humans might use were “body part renewal” and linking bodies with machines so that people are living their lives through an android. But after Dr Pearson’s predictions, immortality may now be a step nearer following the launch of a new start-up. Human is hoping to make the immortality dream a reality with an ambitious plan.

    Josh Bocanegra, the CEO of the company, said he is hoping to use Artificial Intelligence technology to create its own human being in the next three decades. He said: “We’re using artificial intelligence and nanotechnology to store data of conversational styles, behavioural patterns, thought processes and information about how your body functions from the inside-out. “This data will be coded into multiple sensor technologies, which will be built into an artificial body with the brain of a deceased human. “Using cloning technology, we will restore the brain as it matures.”

Defense Chief: Israel Must Deal Hamas a Blow – Even if It Means War in Gaza

Revelation 2:9 – …. and I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.

  • Mentally ill, Zionist war propaganda. To stop violence which they caused, they are recommending more violence, war to kill more people, they imprisoned in Gaza, the largest open air concentration camp/prison in the world.
  • Defense Chief: Israel Must Deal Hamas a Blow – Even if It Means War in Gaza
    by , https://www.haaretz.com/, 16 Oct 2018
    Israel needs to decide if it is headed toward war in Gaza, Avigdor Lieberman says, and a military blow ‘is the only way to lower the level of violence to zero or close to zero’

    Defense Minister Avidgor Lieberman said on Tuesday that Israel must decide if it is headed toward another war with Hamas in Gaza. According to Lieberman, the security cabinet should order a military blow against the Islamist group “even at a price of moving to a wide-scale confrontation.” Israel does not intend to continue responding to violent incidents along the border as it has in the past, the defense minister declared. “My opinion is very clear. We must land a strong blow against Hamas. That’s the only way to lower the level of violence to zero or close to zero.”

    The security cabinet is expected to meet on Wednesday for a second time this week on the situation in Gaza. In a visit to the Israeli army’s division near the Gaza border, Lieberman said the violence on the border last Friday led him to understand that the situation there has changed, and that Israel must change its approach toward the incidents along the border fence.

Israeli Forces Wound Dozens of Palestinian Protesters in Gaza Strip

  • Israeli Forces Wound Dozens of Palestinian Protesters in Gaza Strip
    by https://www.presstv.com/
    Israel soldiers have wounded dozens of Palestinians who had held a protesting rally along the northern coast of the besieged Gaza Strip in a bid to break the decade-long blockade on the impoverished sliver.

    Hundreds of peaceful protesters had gathered in the area on Monday afternoon while dozens of others participated in a boat protest setting off from the Gaza seaport against the siege, but Israeli navy fired rounds and tear gas canisters at both groups.

    According to a brief statement by Gaza Health Ministry, at least 60 people were wounded in the raid near the maritime border with the occupied territories, 24 of whom by live bullets. Furthermore, Israeli military boats opened fire on ambulances and medics, who had rushed to help the wounded, other reports said.

    The demonstration on Monday was the 12th naval march, with the participation of 25 fishing boats, against the crippling blockade of the enclave.

    In August, the Palestinian Union of Agricultural Work Committees (UAWC) announced in a report that Israeli attacks against Palestinian fishermen in the Gaza Strip prevent “fishermen from practicing their fishing work and accessing their livelihood resources.”

    Israel imposed a limit of three nautical miles on fishing in the waters off the Gaza shore until August 2014, when Palestinian fishermen were allowed to go out six miles.

    Back in July, however, Israel reduced the fishing area to only three nautical miles as part of punitive measures against Gazans over the launch of incendiary balloons from the Palestinian coastal sliver into the occupied territories as part of ongoing protests against the decades-long Israeli occupation.

    Over the past few years, Israeli troops have carried out over a hundred assaults on Palestinian boats, arresting dozens of fishermen and confiscating several boats. Israel has imposed movement restrictions on the Gaza Strip since the early 1990s. Restrictions intensified in June 2007 when Israel imposed a land, sea and air blockade on Gaza, citing security concerns.

  • Modern Ashkenazi Khazars (90+% of modern Jewry) are NOT the Jews of the Bible! Ashkenaz is not from the tribe of Shem ie. not semitic! They cannot be the descendents of Jacob/Israel who are from Shem!

  • Sir Gerald Kaufmann (UK Jewish MP):
    “My grandmother was ill in bed when the Nazis came to her home town. A German soldier shot her dead in her bed. “My grandmother did not die to provide cover for Israeli soldiers murdering Palestinian grandmothers in Gaza. ”

    “The present Israeli government ruthlessly and cynically exploits the continuing guilt among gentiles over the slaughter of Jews in the Holocaust as justification for their murder of Palestinians.”

  • He said the claim that many of the Palestinian victims were militants “was the reply of the Nazi” and added: “I suppose the Jews fighting for their lives in the Warsaw ghetto could have been dismissed as militants.”

‘Israel was born out of Jewish Terrorism! …. They are not simply war criminals. They are fools!’

  • … it turns out the creation of Israel had not, after all, been a haphazard fight in which the Arabs fled their homes at the directives of their own leaders, but it had been an unprovoked, systematic campaign of ethnic cleansing by the Jewish militia involving massacres, terrorism and the wholesale looting of an entire nation.” from 4:22 onwards
  • “In 2001, Dr. Ariella Oppenheim, of Hebrew University, a biologist, published the first extensive study of DNA and the origin of the Jews. Her research found that virtually all the Jews came from Khazar blood. Not only that but Oppenheim discovered that the Palestinians—the very people whom the Jews had been persecuting and ejecting from Israel’s land since 1948—had more Israelite blood than did the Jews. In sum, the vast majority of the Jews were not Jews; some of the Palestinians were. Some of the Palestinians even had a DNA chromosome which established that they were “Cohens”—workers at the ancient Temple and synagogues of the Jews.” – Quote

Pages Purged by Facebook Were on Blacklist Promoted by Washington Post

  • Pages Purged by Facebook Were on Blacklist Promoted by Washington Post
    by Andre Damon, http://www.wsws.org/
    Media outlets removed by Facebook on Thursday, in a massive purge of 800 accounts and pages, had previously been targeted in a blacklist of oppositional sites promoted by the Washington Post in November 2016.

    The organizations censored by Facebook include The Anti-Media, with 2.1 million followers, The Free Thought Project, with 3.1 million followers, and Counter Current News, with 500,000 followers. All three of these groups had been on the blacklist.

    In November 2016, the Washington Post published a puff-piece on a shadowy and up to then largely unknown organization called PropOrNot, which had compiled a list of organizations it claimed were part of a “sophisticated Russian propaganda campaign.”

    The Post said the report “identifies more than 200 websites as routine peddlers of Russian propaganda during the election season, with combined audiences of at least 15 million Americans.”

    The publication of the blacklist drew widespread media condemnation, including from journalists Matt Taibbi and Glenn Greenwald, forcing the Post to publish a partial retraction. The newspaper declared that it “does not itself vouch for the validity of PropOrNot’s findings regarding any individual media outlet.”

    While the individuals behind PropOrNot have not identified themselves, the Washington Post said the group was a “collection of researchers with foreign policy, military and technology backgrounds.”

    PropOrNot, which remains active on Twitter, publicly gloated about Facebook’s removal of the pages on Thursday. “Russian propaganda is VERY VERY MAD about their various front outlets & fellow travellers getting suspended by @Facebook &/or @Twitter,” it wrote. The tweet tagged The Anti Media and The Free Thought Project, and included a Russian flag emoji next to an emoji depicting feces.

Huge!! Petrodollar Collapse? Saudi Arabia Warns $200 Barrel Oil?!

  • US sanctions on Riyadh would mean Washington is stabbing itself
    by Turki Aldakhil, https://english.alarabiya.net/
    I read the Saudi statement in response to the American proposals regarding sanctions on Saudi Arabia. The information circulating within decision-making circles within the kingdom have gone beyond the language used in the statement and discuss more than 30 potential measures to be taken against the imposition of sanctions on Riyadh. They present catastrophic scenarios that would hit the US economy much harder than Saudi Arabia’s economic climate.

    If US sanctions are imposed on Saudi Arabia, we will be facing an economic disaster that would rock the entire world. Riyadh is the capital of its oil, and touching this would affect oil production before any other vital commodity. It would lead to Saudi Arabia’s failure to commit to producing 7.5 million barrels. If the price of oil reaching $80 angered President Trump, no one should rule out the price jumping to $100, or $200, or even double that figure.

    An oil barrel may be priced in a different currency, Chinese yuan, perhaps, instead of the dollar. And oil is the most important commodity traded by the dollar today. All of this will throw the Middle East, the entire Muslim world, into the arms of Iran, which will become closer to Riyadh than Washington.

    There are simple procedures, that are part of over 30 others, that Riyadh will implement directly, without flinching an eye if sanctions are imposed. This is all when it comes to oil, but Saudi Arabia is not just about oil, it is a leader in the Muslim world with its standing and geographical importance. And perhaps trusted exchange of information between Riyadh and America and Western countries will be a thing of the past after it had contributed to the protection of millions of Westerners, as testified by senior Western officials themselves.

    Imposing any type of sanctions on Saudi Arabia by the West will cause the kingdom to resort to other options, US President Donald Trump had said a few days ago, and that Russia and China are ready to fulfill Riyadh’s military needs among others. No one can deny that repercussions of these sanctions will include a Russian military base in Tabuk, northwest of Saudi Arabia, in the heated four corners of Syria, Israel, Lebanon and Iraq.

    At a time where Hamas and Hezbollah have turned from enemies into friends, getting this close to Russia will lead to a closeness to Iran and maybe even a reconciliation with it.

    It will not be strange that Riyadh would stop buying weapons from the US. Riyadh is the most important customer of US companies, as Saudi Arabia buys 10 percent of the total weapons that these US companies produce, and buys 85 percent from the US army which means what’s left for the rest of the world is only five percent; in addition to the end of Riyadh’s investments in the US government which reaches $800 billion.

    The US will also be deprived of the Saudi market which is considered one of the top 20 economies in the world. These are simple procedures that are part of over 30 others that Riyadh will implement directly, without flinching an eye if sanctions are imposed on it, according to Saudi sources who are close to the decision-makers.

    The truth is that if Washington imposes sanctions on Riyadh, it will stab its own economy to death, even though it thinks that it is stabbing only Riyadh!

The Comet of the Year is Coming Soon: 46P Passes Mars’ Orbit & is Heading Our Way

  • nemesis maturity Published on Oct 16, 2018
    Heads Up stargazers! Comet 46P/Wirtanen set to put on a show for stargazers over the next few months. Comet Wirtanen passes through the inner solar system every 5.4 years. Right now it is near the orbit of Mars, and it is heading in our direction.

    Astronomers are calling Comet 46P/Wirtanen the “comet of the year.” Two months from now, on Dec. 16th, the kilometer-wide ball of dirty ice will come within 11.5 million km of Earth–making it one of the 10 closest-approaching comets of the Space Age. Comet 46P/Wirtanen will probably become a naked eye object for several weeks during the holidays. Latest images show shows the comet’s green atmosphere which is, impressively, almost twice as wide as the planet Jupiter. The green color comes from diatomic carbon (C2)–a gaseous substance common in comet atmospheres that glows green in the near-vacuum of space.

    At the moment, the integrated brightness of the comet is similar to a 10th magnitude star–that is, dim. However, forecasters expect it to brighten more than 200-fold by December. If current trends hold, 46P could ultimately reach magnitude +3, making it not a Great Comet but a very good one, visible to the unaided eye and an easy target for binoculars or small telescopes.

Juncker Warns ‘The EU Cannot Survive Without Italy’

  • Juncker Warns ‘The EU Cannot Survive Without Italy’
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    Ignoring warnings from the European Commission, the ECB and the European Commission (as well as practically every other supranational organization in Europe), the populist-led Italian government managed to submit their draft budget to the Commission before a midnight deadline – an outcome that was cheered by BTP traders, who bought back into Italian bonds, once again compressing the spread to bunds, which has blown out in recent months.

    But rather than representing a deescalation of tensions between Italy and Brussels, the game of fiscal chicken in which both sides are presently engaged is instead entering its most acute phase, as Brussels now has two weeks to review the budget proposal before it can either accept the plan, or send it back with requests for revisions. 
    And anybody who has been paying even passing attention to the populist government’s denigration of EU budgetary guidelines over the past few months should already understand that Brussels won’t just sit back and accept the budget for what it is.

Donald Trump Claims US Has No Ally ‘Worse Than the EU’ in Candid Interview

  • Donald Trump Claims US Has No Ally ‘Worse Than the EU’ in Candid Interview
    by https://sputniknews.com/
    In a “60 Minutes” interview with CBS’s Lesley Stahl that aired on Sunday night, US President Donald Trump was pushed on far-ranging topics, including China, Saudi Arabia, Vladimir Putin, climate change, and his own administration. Sputnik takes a look at the most flamboyant statements and the POTUS’s fierce rhetoric.

    The 
    ‘Worst’ European Partners
    Donald Trump has once again lashed out at his trans-Atlantic partners as Washington and Brussels have been drifting apart on trade over his protectionist import tariffs.


    “I mean, what’s an ally? We have wonderful relationships with a lot of people. But nobody treats us much worse than the European Union. The European Union was formed in order to take advantage of us on trade, and that’s what they’ve done,” he said. “It sounds hostile,” the interviewer replied.

    “It’s not hostile. You know what’s hostile? The way they treat us. We’re not hostile,” he shot back. “We’ve been the stupid country for so many years.”

    The 
    ‘Vicious’ White House
    Trump indicated that there were “some people that [he’s] not happy with” without naming them, but indicated that Defense Secretary Jim Mattis might be “a sort of a Democrat” and “could be” going to leave his post. This echoed recent reports in American media that their relations have become strained behind close doors.


    Trump also confessed that not everyone in Washington is trustworthy. “I’m not saying I trust everybody in the White House. I’m not a baby. It’s a tough business. This is a vicious place. Washington, DC, is a vicious, vicious place. The attacks… the bad-mouthing, the speaking behind your back. But, you know, and in my way, I feel very comfortable here.”
