Washington D.C. To Hold Massive “Coordinated Terror Attack” Drill This Wednesday:

April 26th is shaping up to be a busy day.

As we reported on Friday, that’s when Operation Gotham Shield, an exercise involving FEMA, Homeland Security and a myriad of law enforcement and military agencies and which simulates a nuclear bomb blast over Manhattan, is set to conclude.

Then, as we learned earlier, April 26 is also when the entire Senate will be briefed by Donald Trump and his four top defense and military officials on the situation in North Korea at the White House, an event which Reuters dubbed as “unusual.” Continue reading »

Trump To Order Corporate Tax Rate Cut To 15%, Loading Up To $2 Trillion In Extra Debt:

Ahead of Trump’s much anticipated tax announcement on Wednesday, the WSJ reports that the president has ordered his (mostly ex-Goldman) White House aides to accelerate efforts to create a tax plan “slashing the corporate rate to 15% and prioritizing cuts in tax rates over an attempt to not increase the deficit” which means that without an offsetting source of revenue, Trump is about to unleash the debt spigots, a proposal which will face fierce pushback from conservatives as it is nothing more than a continuation of the status quo under the Obama administration, and may well be DOA.

The WSJ adds that during an Oval Office meeting last week, “Trump told staff he wants a massive tax cut to sell to the American people” and that it was “less important to him if the plan loses revenue.” Continue reading »

11 Facts That Prove The 2017 US Economy Is In Far Worse Shape Than It Was In 2016:

There is much debate about where the U.S. economy is ultimately heading, but what everybody should be able to agree on is that economic conditions are significantly worse this year than they were last year.  It is being projected that U.S. economic growth for the first quarter will be close to zero, thousands of retail stores are closing, factory output is falling, and restaurants and automakers have both fallen on very hard times.  As economic activity has slowed down, commercial and consumer bankruptcies are both rising at rates that we have not seen since the last financial crisis.  Everywhere you look there are echoes of 2008, and yet most people still seem to be in denial about what is happening.

The following are 11 facts that prove that the U.S. economy in 2017 is in far worse shape than it was in 2016… Continue reading »

US Sanctions 271 Syrians, Freezes Their US Assets:

Two weeks after launching missile strikes on Syria, the U.S. Treasury announced it has sanctioned 271 employees of Syria’s Scientific Studies and Research Center in response to the alleged sarin attack conducted by the Assad regime on Kahn Sheikhoun. It’s one of the largest sanction actions in U.S. history.

The action was announced in a statement by the Treasury Department, and Treasury Security Steve Mnuchin simultaneously briefed reporters at the White House.

The action – which takes place in lieu of a probe demanded by Russia and Syria to determine if Assad was indeed responsible for the recent sarin attack – freezes the individuals’ U.S. assets – which we doubt exist – and generally prohibits U.S. persons from dealing with them. Continue reading »

In “Spectacular Heist” Dozens Of Heavily-Armed Robbers Steal $40 Million From Paraguay Vault:

In what has been dubbed a “spectacular heist” reminiscent of any number of B-rated Hollywood action movies, an army of heavily armed robbers, estimated between 50 and 60, targeted the cash storage facility of a Prosegur SA security vault in Paraguay’s Ciudad del Este, stealing as much as $40 million. During the three-hour long theft, the dozens of assailants who used grenades, explosives and military assault rifles, killed one police officer, injured another and left three civilians wounded. According to Fox News, the robbers blew open one of three vaults, they said. The remaining two were not accessed.

According to media reports, the assault was carried out with a wide array of weapons, including AK 47s, C4 explosives, infrared weapons, snipers and even anti-aircraft guns and a helicopter. Continue reading »

Candidate Trump: ‘I Love Wikileaks.’ President Trump: ‘Arrest Assange!’

“I love Wikileaks,” candidate Donald Trump said on October 10th on the campaign trail. He praised the organization for reporting on the darker side of the Hillary Clinton campaign. It was information likely leaked by a whistleblower from within the Clinton campaign to Wikileaks.

Back then he praised Wikileaks for promoting transparency, but candidate Trump looks less like President Trump every day. The candidate praised whistleblowers and Wikileaks often on the campaign trail. In fact, candidate Trump loved Wikileaks so much he mentioned the organization more than 140 times in the final month of the campaign alone! Now, as President, it seems Trump wants Wikileaks founder Julian Assange sent to prison.

Report: Only 2.65 Percent of Immigrants into Italy Are Refugees:

According to official reports, during the year 2016, only 2.65 percent of those immigrating into Italy were awarded asylum as refugees, with the vast majority staying on in the country as illegal, undocumented immigrants.

This figure does not include those who were able to enter the country undetected, but only those who were officially registered either by Italian officials or NGOs.

Of these, only 4,808 were recognized as refugees and awarded asylum in Italy, a mere 2.65 percent of the total number of those making the crossing. Continue reading »

Move over, Lyme disease: there’s another tick-borne illness in town, and it is dangerous and the number of cases is increasing.

The disease is called Powassan virus (POW). It recently made the news when state health officials confirmed a baby from Connecticut contracted the virus, and it almost killed the young boy.

Liam Phillips was five months old when his battle with the rare and debilitating illness began. His mother, Desiree Phillips, recently discussed the family’s ordeal with ABC57. Continue reading »

China’s new jetliner completes final tests & ready for take off:

The first large Chinese passenger jet, the C919, has passed a crucial test and is expected to make its first flight in May. The plane is part of China’s ambitious plan to become one of the world’s biggest aircraft manufacturers.

High-speed taxiing tests at speeds of 230 – 260 kilometers per hour were carried out at Pudong International Airport when the pilots lifted the nose of the jet into the air and slammed on the brakes. They had to show the aircraft can stop safely on the runway in case of emergency. Continue reading »

Athough a lot of patterns, that are predicted to happen before WW3 are fulfilled, it does NOT look like 2017 (the year 5777 in the Jewish calendar, that many call the year of Armageddon) would be the year, where WW3 will get started.

Before WW3 we would have to see a financial collapse, followed by hyperinflation and civil war in Europe and the US.

The civil war will be absolutely horrible and after all of that has taken place the TPTB will start WW3 (in my opinion).

They would have to collapse the system right NOW to possibly get all of this done, because the ‘real’ WW3 will start somewhere at the end of July, beginning of August.

And there are many who have foreseen this. Alois Irlmaier is just an excellent example:

The Prophecies Of Alois Irlmaier – The Roadmap To WW3 – The 3 Days Of Darkness (Worse Than WW3):

“Everything calls peace, Schalom! Then it will occur – a new Middle East war suddenly flames up, big naval forces are facing hostiley in the Mediterranean – the situation is strained. But the actual firing spark is set on fire in the Balkan: I see a “large one” falling, a bloody dagger lies beside him – then impact is on impact. …”

When you see the French burning Paris to the ground, not just a few cars and streets, but the entire city, then WW3 is very near.

When you see another conflict on the Balkans, then WW3 is near.

Another sign shortly before WW3 would be the Pope fleeing the Vatican, with most priests getting slaughtered.

There are many other signs that haven’t happened yet.

So continue to prepare, because when the financial collapse happens it will be so much more difficult or even impossible to do so.


Queen Elizabeth Warns ‘World War 3 Must Start In 2017’:

Queen Elizabeth “completely ruined her own party” yesterday when she announced to close friends and family that “World War 3 must break out this year” in order for the Illuminati to usher humanity into the next phase of their sick and twisted masterplan.

2017 is a very special year. It will go down in history as the start of World War 3,” the Queen said with an evil smile, according to a Windsor Castle insider.

Queen Elizabeth has an official birthday party celebrated by the British nation in June — when the weather is better — featuring the “Trooping the Color” military parade. April 22, her real birthday, is also celebrated, but it’s a more intimate occasion, featuring only family and invited guests.

The Queen was speaking as though she knows the Illuminati’s plans inside out,” the Windsor Castle insider said, speaking on the strict condition of anonymity. “To make matters worse she seemed turned on by the thrill of a new world war.Continue reading »
