Defiant Harvard Chief Astronomer: “Alien UFO Near Jupiter – Prove Me Wrong!”

  • Harvard’s top astronomer says an alien ship may be among us – and he doesn’t care what his colleagues think
    by , The Washington Post, via https://www.seattletimes.com/
    Since publishing his controversial paper, Avi Loeb has run a nearly nonstop media circuit, embracing the celebrity that comes from being perhaps the most academically distinguished E.T. enthusiast of his time. This has some of his peers grumbling.

    CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — Before he started the whole alien spaceship thing last year, the chairman of Harvard University’s astronomy department was known for public lectures on modesty. Personal modesty, which Avi Loeb said he learned growing up on a farm. And what Loeb calls “cosmic modesty” — the idea that it’s arrogant to assume we are alone in the universe, or even a particularly special species.

    You can find a poster for one of these lectures in Loeb’s office today, though it’s a bit lost among the clutter: photos of Loeb posing under the dome of Harvard’s enormous 19th-century telescope; thank-you notes from elementary-school children; a framed interview he gave the New York Times in 2014; his books on the formation of galaxies; his face, again and again — a bespectacled man in his mid-50s with a perpetually satisfied smile.

    Loeb stands beside his desk on the first morning of spring courses in a creaseless suit, stapling syllabi for his afternoon class. He points visitors to this and that on the wall. He mentions that four TV crews were in this office on the day in the fall when his spaceship theory went viral, and now five film companies are interested in making a movie about his life.

China Says U.S. Warships Entered Waters Without Beijing’s Permission

  • PressTV Published on Feb 11, 2019
    China’s foreign ministry strongly objects to the US after two American warships sail near disputed South China Sea islands. The Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson also said the US warships entered the waters without Beijing’s permission. The Chinese navy later warned the US ship to leave the area. The US destroyers sailed near the Chinese Nansha Islands as part of what Washington calls freedom of navigation operations. Beijing says nearly all of the South China Sea is its territory, while Taiwan, the Philippines, Malaysia and Vietnam also claim it partly.

Trump Adviser Kushner to Visit Middle East on Peace Plan’s Economic Part

Note: the idea of expanding Gaza into the Sinai desert is BOGUS. The Zionists want to expel all Palestinians in Gaza into the Sinai desert.

  • Trump Adviser Kushner to Visit Middle East on Peace Plan’s Economic Part
    by https://www.middleeastmonitor.com/
    White House senior adviser Jared Kushner will travel to at least five Arab countries in late February to brief diplomats on the economic portion of a long-awaited US peace proposal for the Middle East and seek their support, officials said on Thursday, Reuters reports.

    Kushner, who is President Donald Trump’s influential son-in-law, and Trump’s Middle East envoy, Jason Greenblatt, plan stops in Oman, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Qatar on their week-long trip, two senior White House officials said. They may add two other countries to their itinerary.

    Kushner and Greenblatt, joined by State Department envoy Brian Hook and Kushner aide Avi Berkowitz, will not brief the diplomats on the “political component” of the peace plan, which covers all core issues of the decades-old conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, the officials said.

    Instead, they will gauge the level of support for the economic part of the plan, which is expected to include a combination of aid and investment to help the Palestinian people, the officials said.

    “Jared is going to share elements of the economic plan to the region. The economic plan only works if the region supports it,” said one official who briefed a small group of reporters. “This is a very important part of the overall equation.”

    Seeking regional support for the economic plan is a step on the way to the eventual unveiling of Trump’s sweeping proposals to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The economic plan is widely expected to include international funding proposals for the impoverished Gaza Strip.

    Officials said they realised that the Arab diplomats Kushner meets would want to know elements of the political component before rendering a judgment on the economic plan.

The Value of The Dollar Has No Guarantee Whatsoever — The Coming Revaluation of The Price of Gold

Well, what do you know? No lack of toilet paper!

  • The Value of The Dollar Has No Guarantee Whatsoever — The Coming Revaluation of The Price of Gold
    by Egon von Greyerz, https://goldswitzerland.com/
    The statement above is of course totally accurate for a country running budget and trade deficits for over half a century with a total debt, including unfunded liabilities, in the hundreds of trillions of dollars.

    It could have been said today, but it actually dates back to August 1971 when the People’s Daily in China declared the beginning of the end for the monetary system of the capitalist world.
    ….
    THE CHINESE PREDICTED THE DOLLAR FALL
    Starting my working life in a Swiss Bank in Geneva two years before Nixon’s fatal decision, I have experience of that fall of the dollar that the Chinese predicted. In 1970, there were 4.30 Swiss francs to the dollar. Today you get just under one Franc for one US$. That is a catastrophic collapse of 77% of the world’s reserve currency in almost 50 years. If we look at the graph of the dollar against the Swiss franc below, we can see that this currency pair has been in a long consolidation at the bottom since 1987.

    Gold and the other precious metals are on the way to new highs. There are two different paths for gold. One, which is favoured by some market experts, is a reset orchestrated by the IMF and the World Bank leading to a gold backed SDR. That would involve gold trading ceasing for a limited time, starting one weekend. When the market opens again, gold will be revalued to a much higher level which in US dollar terms could be $5,000, $10,000 or higher.

    The other alternative is that market demand and pressures make gold rise very fast to new highs, and way beyond that, in the next few years. This would be a disorderly reset.

    Since I would have no faith in the first official reset which will be fake and not solve any of the world’s problems, we are likely to see the second reset in any case. At that point the gold paper market will go to zero and the physical gold market to unthinkable heights.

    In either case, the last chance of getting hold of gold at low prices, or at all, is now. Gold is unlikely to wait for a bigger number of investors to get in at these prices. So now is the time to get on the Gold Wagon before it is too late.

Remember the Golden Rule: “He who has the gold Rules!”

Israeli Military Conducts Massive War Simulation with Lebanon After Hezbollah Leader’s Speech

  • Israeli Military Conducts Massive War Simulation with Lebanon After Hezbollah Leader’s Speech
    by https://www.almasdarnews.com/ , 8 Feb 2019
    BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:30 P.M.) – The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) reportedly carried out a massive military exercise that simulated war with Lebanon, Yiddish News reported on Friday. According to Yiddish News, the IDF military exercise was also backed by tanks and warplanes.

    This military exercise comes just days after Hezbollah’s Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah delivered his first televised interview since November. During his interview with Al-Mayadeen TV, the Hezbollah leader mocked the Israeli military operation that targeted the tunnels along the border of southern Lebanon.

    Furthermore, the Hezbollah leader boasted that his forces were prepared for any potential conflict with the Israeli Defense Forces, should one arise in the future.

US Pushing Lebanon Towards War with Israel, According to Russian Envoy

  • US Pushing Lebanon Towards War with Israel, According to Russian Envoy
    by Russia’s Ambassador to Lebanon Alexander Zasypkin has warned the next war between Israel and Lebanon would be the result of “U.S. activity in the region and their campaign against Iran and Hezbollah.”

    In an interview with Russia’s Sputnik news agency, Friday, Zasypkin said “as for the Israeli-Lebanese situation, it is difficult to assess what will be because the entire region is at a crossroads.”

    He added that “the citizens expect a resolution to the problems, a return to peaceful lives and the development of cooperation.” But he said the Americans could spark new conflicts and that numerous other countries and ethnic groups could become involved in the fighting.

    Zasypkin also said that instead of there being a give-and-take relationship with the Russians, the United States has chosen “to embark on a campaign against Iran and Hezbollah that makes the atmosphere in the region even more violent.”

    Russia’s Beirut envoy said he sees Hezbollah’s involvement in the Syrian civil war as a positive factor. “They played an important part in the destruction of the terrorist cells. Hezbollah sided with the legitimate government in Syria from the outset of the war, as did Russia and Iran,” he said.

    Zasypkin also lauded the Shi’ite terrorist group for being “a strong political party that is very active in parliament. They contribute a great deal to stability, security and peace in Lebanon.”

Salvini Calls For Elimination Of Italy’s Central Bank, “Prison Time For Fraudsters”

  • Salvini Calls For Elimination Of Italy’s Central Bank, “Prison Time For Fraudsters”
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    On Friday, in a moment of predictive insight, Bank of America correctly warned that the greatest threat to EPS – i.e., markets – in the next 3 years “is an acceleration of global populism via taxation, regulation & government intervention.” Just one day later, this warning to the financial establishment was starkly manifest in that ground zero for Europe’s populist revolt, Italy, where the country’s coalition government hinted at where the global populist wave is headed next when he slammed the country’s central bank leadership and stock market regulator, escalating its attacks on establishment figures ahead of the European parliamentary vote in May.

    Matteo Salvini, the outspoken head of the anti-immigrant League party, said the Bank of Italy and Consob, the country’s stock market regulator, should be “reduced to zero, more than changing one or two people, reduced to zero”, or in other words eliminated, and that “fraudsters” who inflicted losses on Italian savers should “end up in prison for a long time.”

    As the FT notes, this latest broadside against Italy’s financial establishment comes as the two parties which are increasingly at odds with each other amid speculation Salvini may hold elections to become the sole leader of Italy, prepare to run against each other in the European parliamentary elections in May, a contest widely seen as a proxy for national polls. Meanwhile, both leaders have also increased their attacks against targets including the EU and French president Emmanuel Macron.

Senate Forbids Israel Boycott – Is It Constitutional?

  • RonPaulLibertyReport Streamed live on Feb 7, 2019
    The first Senate bill of the year has taken on those who seek to boycott Israel over its treatment of Palestinians. In a complicated maneuver, the Senate has voted to allow states to boycott the boycotters. Is it a free speech/First Amendment issue? Supporters of the bill say no. Many civil libertarians disagree.
