- Propaganda 101 – How the Pentagon is Trying to Rewrite Vietnam War History (Liberty Blitzkrieg, Oct 16, 2014):

In case you weren’t aware, the Pentagon is set to roll out a 50th anniversary commemoration of the Vietnam War. Personally, it’s hard to get excited about commemorating an event that led to the death of over 58,000 American soldiers and more than a million Vietnamese, particularly since much of it was the direct result of well documented lies and deception, such as the Gulf of Tonkin incident.

What’s worse, the Pentagon intends to rewrite history by whitewashing this period of civil unrest and government shame from American history. The propaganda is so blatant that it has resulted in many of the era’s most well known protestors and activists to come together in order to stop it.

The New York Times reports that: Continue reading »

- Mel Watt, Federal Housing Finance Agency Head, is Pushing Banks to Make Extremely Risky Home Loans (Liberty Blitzkrieg, Oct 16, 2014):

Mel Watt is one of the most dangerous financial oligarch puppets operating in America today. The first time he came across my radar screen was back in 2009, when he “gutted” Ron Paul’s End the Fed bill while it was in subcommittee, something I outlined in the post: Leverage in PE Deals Soars Despite Fed Warnings; Amidst Insatiable Demand for Risky Fannie Mae Debt.

Even With Ebola, ISIS, Ukraine and Wild Stock Market Swings … Fukushima Still Ranks As Imporant World News

Nothing has been fixed at Fukushima.

After typhoon Phanfone dumped a bunch of water on Fukushima earlier this month, radioactive tritium levels jumped tenfold.

After typhoon Vongfong dumped a bunch more water on the plant, radioactive cesium and strontium levels soared.

Radiation levels in the water are at all-time highs.

Officials said there’s nothing they can do to stop it, and they have no idea how much radiation is running into the ocean. Continue reading »

- Welcome To Arcadia – The California Suburb Where Rich Chinese Stash Cash In McMansions (Liberty Blitzkrieg, Oct 16, 2014):

The city, population 57,600, projects that about 150 older homes—53 percent more than normal—will be torn down this year and replaced with mansions. The deals happen fast and are rarely listed publicly. Often, the first indication that a megahouse is coming next door is when the lawn turns brown. That means the neighbor has stopped watering and green construction netting is about to go up.

Arcadia is a concentrated version of what’s happening across the U.S. The Hurun Report, a magazine in Shanghai about China’s wealthy elite, estimates that almost two-thirds of the country’s millionaires have already emigrated or plan to do so.

– From the Bloomberg article: Why Are Chinese Millionaires Buying Mansions in an L.A. Suburb?

The surge in foreigners buying up U.S. real estate has been well documented in recent years. Of all this buying, no nation has demonstrated a bigger increase in purchases than China. In fact, it is estimated that 24% of all foreign purchases of domestic real estate this year have come from China, up 72% from last year. In my post from July, Chinese Purchases of U.S. Real Estate hit $22 Billion as The Bank of China Facilitates Money Laundering, I noted that:

In some California communities, 90% of real estate buyers are from China. Yes, 90%. Naturally, many of them are buying multi-million dollar homes in “all cash” transactions. Continue reading »

- Forget about Ebola – here’s why US banks (and your savings) are now EXTREMELY vulnerable (Sovereign Man, Oct 16, 2014):

For a casual observer of the US economy (most “experts”), you could say that things look pretty good. Unemployment is at its lowest rate in six years. Earnings of S&P 500 companies are higher than ever, while their debt is lower than it’s been in the last 24 years.

Nonetheless, rather than getting excited for good economic times, the big commercial banks are all battening down the hatches. They’re preparing for bad times ahead. Continue reading »

In late August, we drew the world’s attention to the fact that ISIS had acquired three fighter jets when the Iraqi military ran away. Now, six weeks later, as Reuters reports, having been trained by Iraqi pilots who have joined Islamic State,  a group monitoring the war said on Friday, saying it was the first time that the militant group had taken to the air.

Christine-Lagarde-IMF

- The IMF And Austrian Theory ( Mises Canada,Oct 17, 2014):

Back in the early 1960s, financial journalist Henry Hazlitt warned against efforts to create an international system to help facilitate the smooth transfer of currencies. Representatives from the world’s leading governments were attempting to increase liquidity in global markets. They wanted to make sure the banking system and sovereign governments would never had a lack of funds. Hazlitt was not fooled. “In plain English” he wrote, “they are pushing for more world inflation.” His words, though accurate, went unheeded. The International Monetary Fund, which was established decades earlier, was to play a role in facilitating endless inflation.

Half a century later, the IMF has overseen a tumultuous business cycle that came to a screeching halt in 2008. Big, overleveraged banks were on the verge of collapsing; millions of people lost their jobs and their homes; governments spent billions of dollars to maintain their welfare safety nets. The end result, which is still ongoing, is stagnant economic growth with dim prospects for recovery. Continue reading »

- Kudos To Herr Weidmann For Uttering Three Truths In One Speech (David Stockman’s Contra Corner, Oct 17, 2014):

Once in a blue moon officials commit truth in public, but the intrepid leader of Germany’s central bank has delivered a speech which let’s loose of three of them in a single go. Speaking at a conference in Riga, Latvia, Jens Weidmann put the kibosh on QE, low-flation and central bank interference in pricing of risky assets.

These days the Keynesian chorus in favor of policy activism is so boisterous that a succinct statement to the contrary rarely gets through – especially at Rupert Murdoch’s Wall Street yarn factory. But here’s what penetrated even Brian Blackstone’s filters:

“The biggest bottleneck for growth in the euro area is not monetary policy, nor is it the lack of fiscal stimulus: it is the structural barriers that impede competition, innovation and productivity,” he said.

“If North Korea moved across the border, our war plans called for the senior American general on the peninsula to take command of all U.S. and South Korea forces and defend South Korea – including by the use of nuclear weapons, if necessary. I left our meeting with the powerful sense that war in that region was neither hypothetical nor remote but ever-present and imminent.” Continue reading »

The Dallas nurses who contracted Ebola while treating a patient at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital have been moved from the building, but patients are still steering clear of the once-bustling hospital.

People have called to cancel outpatient procedures, and some have even opted not to go to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in emergency situations, ABC Dallas affiliate WFAA reports.

“It feels like a ghost town,” Rachelle Cohorn, a local health care vendor who has been to the hospital recently, told WFAA. “No one is even walking around the hospital.” Continue reading »

A company named Phoenix Air Medevac has reportedly transferred over 10 Ebola patients successfully despite recent and growing public concerns after a video showing a man with a clipboard dressed in plain clothes, wearing no mask, grabbed something on the tarmac from health workers wearing full-on HAZMAT suits who were escorting a highly contagious Ebola patient onto a specially designed aircraft.

However, despite the fact the man “reached back and grabbed something from the guys in protective suits” there apparently is nothing to worry about because “he is really further away than he looks”, Fox News reported.

- Senate refuses to blame Bush, senior aides in CIA torture investigation (RT, Oct 17, 2014):

A classified US Senate probe into the CIA’s post-9/11 detention and interrogation program does not evaluate the role of former President George W. Bush or top administration officials in approving abuses including torture, according to a new report.

The Senate Intelligence Committee’s $40 million investigation into the Central Intelligence Agency’s detention and interrogation program – active from September 11, 2001 to 2006 – has found that the spy agency purposely deceived the US Justice Department to attain legal justification for the use of torture techniques, among other findings that resulted in a 6,000-page report, completed from March 2009 to December 2012. Of that investigative report, the public will only see a 500-page, partially-redacted executive summary that is in the process of declassification. Continue reading »

After a lengthy meeting with Germany’s Angela Merkel (at a hotel in Milan) where Putin warned of “big transit risks” in delivery of Europe’s gas as Ukraine is “starting to siphon off our gas from the export pipeline,” and threatening to respond by “reducing flows by the amount stolen;” Putin decided the place to be was 78-year-old Berlusconi’s house at 3am. Finally, it is worth noting that Ukraine’s President Poroshenko was scheduled to meet with Frau Merkel this morning – we assume to plead his case for why gas transit should flow through his nation (and beg for some more support).

If reality that exists all around would be represented by Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, then what our eyes can perceive from this reality would be represented by a tiny dot on the painting and that would still be a complement.

- This Woman Sees 100 Times More Colors Than The Average Person (Popular Science, Oct 13 ,2014):

To tetrachromatic artist Concetta Antico, the world is, “like a mosaic of color.”

When Concetta Antico looks at a leaf, she sees much more than just green. “Around the edge I’ll see orange or red or purple in the shadow; you might see dark green but I’ll see violet, turquoise, blue,” she said. “It’s like a mosaic of color.”

Antico doesn’t just perceive these colors because she’s an artist who paints in the impressionist style. She’s also a tetrachromat, which means that she has more receptors in her eyes to absorb color. The difference lies in Antico’s cones, structures in the eyes that are calibrated to absorb particular wavelengths of light and transmit them to the brain. The average person has three cones, which enables him to see about one million colors. But Antico has four cones, so her eyes are capable of picking up dimensions and nuances of color—an estimated 100 million of them—that the average person cannot. “It’s shocking to me how little color people are seeing,” she said.

“You might see dark green but I’ll see violet, turquoise, blue. It’s like a mosaic of color.”

- Handelsblatt: “Four German Banks On The Brink” (ZeroHedge, Oct 17, 2014):

Several days ago we were confused why, out of the blue, a €1 billion loan BWIC appeared that was dumping German non-performing loans. After all, the whole point of the European “recovery” fable to date has been to deflect all the attention from the “pristine” German banks, up to an including world-record derivatives juggernaut Deutsche Bank,  and to focus on Greece and other insolvent peripheral European nation. Earlier today, German Handelsblatt provided an answer, when it reported that “four German banks are on the brink”, i.e., four banks of which three are known, HSH Nordbank, IKB and MunchenerHyp, will likely fail the ECB’s stress test whose results are due to be announced next Friday.

Keep in mind that this is a significant fraction of the 24 German banks that are undergoing the ECB’s Stress farce test. So one wonders: if one in six German banks is so unsafe even the ECB (which kept Cypriot banks going well past their insolvency) will give them a black stamp (because in Europe failing a bank stress test is first of all impossible since both Bankia and Dexia passed theirs with flying cololrs, but more importantly a death sentence), what does that leave for the rest of Europe’s banks, all of which are in far more dire shape than sleepy Germany?

In any case, here is Handlesblatt’s warning: Continue reading »

Vaccine information warfare DOCUMENTED

UPDATE: Pressure from this web site got Livingwhole.org put BACK ONLINE

The best of the best and well researched anti vaccine web sites are being taken down RIGHT NOW, with all content immediately purged from the Google cache and I’d like to question WHY.

UPDATE: The owner of Livingwhole.org “posted to facebook” that she took her site down because she was “harassed”. ONE BIG QUESTION: HOW DID SHE PURGE THE GOOGLE CACHE THEN? HOW DID A HOUSE WIFE REACH INTO THE GOOGLE SERVER AND PURGE IT?.

Web sites vanish. But NOT BEFORE THEY EXPIRE and when they do vanish naturally, the Google cache will linger for months. This was not the case with Livingwhole.org, which vanished without a trace and was simultaneously flushed from the Google cache within a day of posting the following, and I beg to question WHY

- NO MATTER WHAT the story, DO NOT get vaccinated, a new bioweapon is being distributed via vaccines (Jim Stone):

There have been many reports about nanobots being developed that will destroy people. This report actually identifies that nanobot and what it is based upon. Once this nanobot is received via a tainted vaccine, it inserts DNA into your cells which instructs your own cells to produce more copies of itself and THAT is how it replicates. And it NEVER backs off, it simply orders your own cells to keep producing it until your cells die from being over worked doing exactly that.

Rogers reflects on the end of the US bull market. citing a number of factors from breadth to the end of QE, adding that he agrees with Albert Edwards’ perspective that now is the time to “sell everything and run for your lives,” as the “consequences of [The Fed] are now being felt.” Most notably though, Rogers believes the de-dollarization is here to stay as Western sanctions force many nations to find alternatives. Simply put, Rogers concludes, “we are all going to pay a terrible price for all this money-printing and debt.”
