- Agafia’s story: Old hermit lives alone deep in Siberian forest, seeks help(RT, Sep 18, 2014):

Russian babushka Agafia, whose family fled civilization nearly a century ago, was born in the wilderness of the deep Siberian taiga. RT visited Agafia, who is the only living person of a family of the ‘Old Believers’ denomination of the Orthodox church.

In the mid-17th century, the leader of Russia’s Orthodox church, Patriarch Nikon, introduced radical reforms in Russia. Many couldn’t accept the changes and became known as ‘Old Believers.’

To avoid religious persecution first from the Orthodox Church and then from the Soviets, many families fled to some of the most remote corners of the country. Continue reading »

- This Seems To Be Going Well… (Sovereign man, Sep 16, 2014):

Gallup released a new poll late last week showing how many (or few, as it were) Americans are ‘satisfied’ with the direction of the country. 23%. That’s it. 76% are NOT satisfied. Only 1% aren’t sure.

The chart below shows the astounding, long-term decline since 2000.

gallup-us

Note, this is a trend that has outlasted three Presidents and six Congresses. It’s not about a single politician, or even ALL the politicians. It’s about the system itself.

Bottom line, people are fed up. The system has failed. And people are starting to realize it. Where do you think this goes?

- The Trolling Continues: Fed Chairwoman Expresses Her Condolences To America’s Poor (ZeroHedge, Sep 18, 2014):

As we discussed earlier in the week, Janet Yellen has released a speech this morning explaining how sorry she is about ‘the poor’ and why they need to get rich. In the speech below, she stresses, “how important it is to promote asset-building, including saving for a rainy day, as protection from the ups and downs of the economy,” despite falling incomes, rising costs, and extending credit, we assume she means. The Fed Chairman has some words of encouragement for the tens of millions of Americans who live at or below the poverty level, including that threatened with extinction class, affectionately known as “the middle.” Her message? It is important to build assets, or said otherwise…  get rich and she promises to “continue to promote asset-building.”

  • *YELLEN SAYS FIGURES ON POOR AMERICANS’ ASSETS IS `SOBERING’ (indeed! but not the rich eh?)
  • *YELLEN SAYS HOUSING CRISIS LEGACY STILL HURTING POOR AMERICANS (need another bubble)
  • *YELLEN: HOUSING IMPROVING, WILL STAY KEY FOR FAMILY ASSETS (as homeownership tumbles)
  • *YELLEN SAYS AMERICANS NEED MORE DIVERSIFICATION OF ASSETS (buy stocks too)
  • *YELLEN SAYS FED WILL `CONTINUE TO PROMOTE ASSET-BUILDING’ (count on the Fed to lift prices)
  • *YELLEN: CRISIS SHOWED VULNERABILITY OF LOW-ASSET HOUSEHOLDS (poor people should save more!)

Remember, one of our favorite charts, showing that while the rich hold assets, the poor are merely drowning in ever more debt: Continue reading »

- It’s Not Just The Police – The Feds Are Also Militarizing Public Schools With Grenade Launchers, M16s & Tanks (Liberty Blitzkrieg, Sep 17, 2014):

Events last month in Ferguson, Missouri (read my detailed thoughts here) forced Americans to confront the frightening reality that many of of the nation’s police departments have been quietly, but consistently, militarizing over the past couple of decades. It’s one thing to intellectually understand that this has happened, it’s quite another to see cops deploy tanks and point sniper rifles at peacefully protesting U.S. citizens.

Just as disturbing as the scenes themselves, is the fact that this has been happening for so long under the 1033 transfer program with only muted criticism. The program was originated in the late 1990′s under the National Defense Authorization Act of 1997 (recall that the NDAA is also being used to allow for the indefinite detention of American citizens without trial), and it allows for the transfer of excess Department of Defense equipment to domestic police. In other words, it has been public policy for almost two decades to militarize the police.

With the issue squarely still in the public consciousness, it would behoove us to understand that this program is not only arming police with weapons of war. In fact, public schools are also receiving such items, including grenade launchers, M16s and MRAPs.

The Wall Street Journal reports that: Continue reading »

Eritrea-US-IRS

- An Appalling Practice Used In Only Two Nations, Of Which The US Is One (Doug Casey’s International Man):

It’s sort of an obscure story, but it’s also incredibly instructive.

That’s the story of how Eritrea—a tiny, mostly unheard-of country in East Africa—taxes its citizens who live abroad.

Eritrea is one of only two countries in the entire world that taxes its nonresident citizens on their global income. Specifically, Eritrea levies a flat 2% tax on the income of its citizens who reside abroad.

Nearly every other country in the world bases its tax system on residency rather than citizenship. Continue reading »

- Desperate Californians steal water from fire hydrants as rich community pays half a million dollars for overwatering lawns (Natural News, Sep 15, 2014):

The ongoing water crisis in California has sparked an apparent crime wave in some parts of the state, with desperate residents illegally taking water from fire hydrants in the middle of the night to keep their lawns green and their animals happy. Reports indicate that, in some areas, as much as 10 percent of the water supply has gone missing, presumably due to theft, a premonition of much worse things to come if rains remain at bay.

The city of Lemoore, for instance, a community of some 25,000 people south of Fresno, has seen numerous water thefts in recent weeks — a growing black market for water amidst one of the worst droughts in California history. According to The Hanford Sentinel, thieves are believed to be attaching hoses to fire hydrants throughout the city and pumping water into large plastic tanks affixed to the back of trucks.

Wisconsin-Sample-ID-Card

- National ID card being covertly rolled out under ‘enhanced’ driver’s license programs (Natural News, Sep 14, 2014):

“Papers, please?” That’s a question you might hear from authorities trying to verify who you are if you lived in an authoritarian police state. It’s not likely that Americans will be asked to prove who they are anytime soon because, after all, we’ve got a Constitution, and it protects us against unjustified invasions of our privacy.

The same is true of a so-called “national ID card,” right? That could never happen in America. Only it has happened — or will happen, depending upon which state you currently reside in.

If you’ve never heard of the “Enhanced Driver’s License,” or EDL, you’re not alone. Most of us haven’t. But they are just that — national (and soon, global) ID cards [states will be forced to issue them to obscure the fact] that immediately verify who we are, without overtly asking us for our “papers.” Continue reading »

- Will The Swiss Vote to Get Their Gold Back? (Ron Paul Sep 14, 2014):

On November 30th, voters in Switzerland will head to the polls to vote in a referendum on gold. On the ballot is a measure to prohibit the Swiss National Bank (SNB) from further gold sales, to repatriate Swiss-owned gold to Switzerland, and to mandate that gold make up at least 20 percent of the SNB’s assets. Arising from popular sentiment similar to movements in the United States, Germany, and the Netherlands, this referendum is an attempt to bring more oversight and accountability to the SNB, Switzerland’s central bank.

- The Two Scariest Charts in the World (Erico Matias Tavares, Sinclair & Co.):

There are plenty of things to worry about these days. A cursory look through today’s (13 Sep 14) drudgereport.com sets the tone: the Pope says WWIII is underway; a senior Democrat accuses the Republicans of endangering civilization; drones are invading the privacy of citizens; militias are blocking traffic in the Mexican border; Feds run a US$589 billion budget deficit; the UK might fall apart; the Ebola epidemic is getting serious in Africa; a mystery virus spreads to NY and CT (and we could not resist adding this one: Hillary Clinton is doing yoga).

H/t reader M.G.:

“Only Japanese producer with show that addressed Fukushima found dead………questions around death abound…..he was the only one with the guts to cover the horrors of Fukushima, the rest of the media is mute…..like the US media.”


“Very Frightening”: Journalist on popular Japan news program found dead — Only person reporting about Fukushima on national TV — Chilling recent quote: “I want you to know I will never commit suicide” — No news coverage of death, no obituary, ‘strange’ nuclear message shown on air (VIDEO) (ENENews, Sep 15, 2014):

Interview with Beverly Findlay Kaneko, evacuee from Yokohama, Japan, Social Uplift, published Sept. 14, 2014: A TV journalist named Mr. Masaki Iwaji, he was the only TV director to work on the Fukushima issue — the humanitarian problems and the corruption involved — and get it on national TV… He was found dead and there are rumors that it was suicide, but there is a lot of speculation that it was not. It is something that I’ve been thinking about quite a lot this week… His program, which is called ‘Hodo Station’, is a nightly news program that’s very popular. I would equate it to ‘60 Minutes’. That program has come under a lot of fire. The main anchor of that program, Mr. [Ichiro] Furutachi — who is extremely popular… it was rumored that he was in danger of losing his job for actually allowing these issues to be covered. Many of us are extremely upset to hear about Mr. Iwaji’s death. It’s very frightening. >> Watch segment here Continue reading »

Today the LibLabCon has joined forces to keep the Union together, they say. Very publicly “abandoning” Prime Ministers Questions in order to give the maximum impression that they actually wish to keep the Union together, all three have flown up to Scotland to campaign for a “NO” vote.

The Three Stooges are playing a clever psychological game. Their intention is clear as evidenced by the constitutional reform agenda – the breakup of the Union. They give the impression that they are fighting for Scotland to stay in the Union in the full knowledge that any right thinking Scotsman or woman will struggle to resist the temptation to punch them on the nose at first sight.  Continue reading »

When it comes to the poorest quartile of US society, some 14 million people, any suggestion that US society is deleveraging and setting the stage for pent up releveraging and thus, economic growth, is dead wrong. In fact, as the Fed’s triennial Survey of Consumer Finances, released last week showed, America’s poorest have never been more in debt! Continue reading »

In Venezuela First They Came For The Toilet Paper; Then They Came For The News Paper… (ZeroHedge, Sep 11, 2014):

Bidet sales across Venezuela are set to soar as just months after running out of toilet paper, AP reports that Venezuela’s oldest newspaper is shutting down due to falling advertising, mounting inflation and a lack of basic materials. In addition, at least nine Venezuelan regional newspapers have stopped circulation because of the shortages. Of course, this is likely great news for President Maduro who can now manage his people’s minds direct from his Twitter feed… welcome to socialist utopia.

Submitted by Martin Armstrong via Armstrong Economics,

  • *SPANISH GOVT SAYS 470,000 TO 520,000 DEMONSTRATORS IN BARCELONA
  • *BARCELONA POLICE SAY 1.8M PEOPLE AT PRO-INDEPENDENCE DEMO

Spain-Militarizing

The Spanish government is militarizing gearing up for violent protests against the EU that are expected to turn up before a hot autumn. Spain is now equipping the police with about one billion million euros with new combat equipment. Violent protests in Spain since the crisis began almost a daily occurrence. Movements such as 25 de Mayo or the Indignados call Spaniards of all strata of the population to protest against the government on the streets. The police will always respond violently. They cover up their brutal responses by banning any video of police beatings making it a crime in itself. This is certainly illustrating the loss of freedom and any democratic process within Europe. The police scandals have only charged the atmosphere within the population and we may see this erupt into civil war as we move forward. Continue reading »

Far-Right Nationalist Le Pen Takes Lead In French Presidental Poll (ZeroHedge, Sep 11, 2014):

It’s not just Scotland… or Catalan. As The Guardian reports, polls out in the past few days in France have shown far-right Front National (FN) leader Marine Le Pen topping a presidential poll for the first time. Alongside this surge in support for FN is the utter collapse in the French people’s faith in Hollande. Less than 20% of voters now approve of the French president and stunningly more than half the nation’s card-holding-socialists have given up on him. An unprecedented 85% of French voters don’t think Hollande should seek a second term. One word – guillotine?

It has been said, correctly, if only by those who see beyond the false “left-right” paradigm, that those who call the shots in US politics, and thus American socio-economics, are not so much America’s lobbying corporations, but the people behind the corporations – i.e., those who have the money… all of it. Obviously, nobody has more money than America’s billionaires. So who are the true puppetmasters who determine America’s fate?

Majority Of Chinese Say War With Japan Is Just A Matter Of Time (ZeroHedge, Sep 11, 2014):

Even the escalating cold war (as in European winter cold) between Russia and the west will pale by comparison to what may happen in the far east, if the pent up for generations tensions between China and Japan, which have historically hardly been in a state of “amicable relations”, finally spill over into an all out war. Which, incidentally, is precisely what a majority, or 53% of Chinese respondents, and some 29% of their Japanese peers, expect will happen in the coming years.

MICROCHIP CANCER REPORT

Flashback:

- CASPIAN RELEASES MICROCHIP CANCER REPORT:

A new paper titled “Microchip-Induced Tumors in Laboratory Rodents and Dogs: A Review of the Literature 1990–2006” has been released…

… and that is the least problem we face from having microchip implants.

They are already secretly implanting people:

- Study Analyzing The Prevalence Of RFID Chips In 3 Geographically Discrete U.S. Populations Finds That On Average 1 In 3 Individuals Carry An RFID Chip

As I and others have warned many times:

There is one thing the people have to resist or it is all over and that is microchip implants.

microchip-rfid-666-mark-of-the-beast

I love dogs (and animals in general), but having one with a microchip implant is impossible for me.

CIA Funded Mind Control Experiments – Bull & Cat Tests by Dr Delgado in the 1960s

And that was in the 1960s and that was what they wanted us to know about!!!

A microchip is not just a sender and storage of information, it is also a receiver of information

If you have a microchip in your body, then they can do to you and make you do whatever they want.

- The Era Of Widespread Biometric Indentification And Microchip Implants Is Here (Economic Collapse, Sep 9, 2014):

Are you ready to have your veins scanned every time you use your bank account?  Are you ready to use a “digital tattoo” or a microchip implant to unlock your telephone?  Once upon a time we read about such technologies in science fiction novels, but now they are here.  The era of widespread biometric identification and microchip implants is upon us, and it is going to change the way that we live.  Proponents of these new technologies say that they will make our private information and our bank accounts much more secure.  But there are others that warn that these kinds of “Big Brother technologies” will set the stage for even more government intrusion into our lives.  In the wrong hands, such technologies could prove to be an absolute nightmare.

Barclays has just announced that it is going to become the first major bank in the western world to use vein scanning technology to control access to bank accounts.  There will even be a biometric reader that customers plug into their computers at homeContinue reading »

- “Million-Dollar Parking Spots” – Peak Stupidity has Arrived in Manhattan (Liberty Blitzkrieg, Sep 10, 2014):

Hundreds of men in starched robes descend on an opulent hotel here to vie for the most distinguished digits. Earlier this year, Abu Dhabi businessman Saeed Khouri made headlines and the Guinness Book of World Records when he paid $14 million for the tag simply sporting a “1.” His cousin, stockbroker Talal Khouri, paid $9 million for “5″ — the second-largest sum ever paid for a license plate.

- From the July 1, 2008 Wall Street Journal titled: Read My License Plate: It Cost Me a Fortune

I vividly remember reading the above article in the Wall Street Journal over six years ago and shaking my head in disbelief. Although the U.S. equity market had already peaked in October of 2007, in early July 2008 the oil market was hitting new record highs almost every single day. I remember going on an endless stream of client visits with my former employer, partly due to the novelty of me being one of the few sell-side guys out there yelling that we were in the midst of a massive commodity bubble. Within days of that WSJ Journal article, the oil bubble popped and the price crashed from a high of $147 per barrel to $32 by December, or a nearly 80% plunge in five months.

I will never forget that article because it was the perfect indicator that too much money was sloshing around that particular market. It’s one thing to pay too much for a home or even a car, but license plates? To me that was the definition of madness.

Fast forward six years, and due to Central Bank policies that provide free money to the oligarchs residing in the world’s financial capitals, places like New York City and London are awash in billions upon billions of dollars. As is always the case, these fortunate bailout recipients are more than happy to throw it around in the most absurd of manners. It appears the latest craze in my hometown of NYC revolves around parking spaces, which in one new luxury building in SoHo are selling for $1 million each. Continue reading »

net-neutrality

- Net Neutrality (Save The Internet):

On Jan. 14, 2014, the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C., struck down the Federal Communications Commission’s Open Internet Order.

And on May 15, the FCC voted to propose a new “open Internet” rule that may let Internet service providers charge content companies for priority treatment, relegating other content to a slower tier of service.

Under these rules, telecom giants like AT&T, Comcast and Verizon would be able to pick winners and losers online and discriminate against online content and applications.

We must stop the FCC from moving forward with these rules.

Here’s how we got here: Continue reading »

- Oregonian arrested for filming SWAT raid (VIDEO) (RT, Sep 8, 2014):

Footage recently posted to YouTube shows an Oregon man being arrested for filming, or “interfering” with, a militarized police raid across the street from his apartment.

The man – whose YouTube account is Skylow Production – said he was sleeping at his Gresham, Oregon apartment at around 4 a.m. local time on Sept. 2 when he heard the sound of broken glass and flash bang grenades.

“I grabbed my iPad and ran outside as fast as I could to see what was going on,” he said in the video’s description. “There were 5 or more tank/military trucks just cruising through my neighborhood,” which is “right across the street from Mt.Hood Community College.”

In the video, two law enforcement officers, decked out in military gear, approach the man filming across the street, telling him to go back inside, as he was supposedly “interfering” in the execution of a search warrant.

“You go inside right now….it’s a lawful order….go inside right now,” one officer said while swinging at the iPad.

A third officer can be heard saying over a loudspeaker, “All neighbors stay inside and away from windows.” The two cops addressing the man filming the action then turn around and begin handcuffing the man, as they say “quit resisting us.”
