- IBM Stock Disappointed That Company Isn’t Firing A Mindboggling 110,000 (ZeroHedge, Jan 26, 2015):

Over the weekend, in a repeat of rumors that were widespread last year, Forbes ‘reported’ about Project Chrome, a massive corporate reorganization for IBM that would see Big Blue cull over a quarter of its staff – in real terms that means over 110,000 employees, as early as next week. IBM stocks surged higher on this ‘great’ news… and then, disappointment started as “the largest corporate restructuring in history” was denied by the company…

Consider…

Saudi-Arabia-US-Relationship

Then consider…

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, General Martin Dempsey has, according to Politico, asked The National Defense University to establish an essay and research competition focused on the Middle East in honor of Saudi Arabia’s late King Abdullah. How very generous for America’s top uniformed military leader to recognize such a leader of another nation… Though no details of the prize are available, we thought we would take a stab (figuratively) at an essay...

As Politico reports,

The National Defense University plans to establish an essay and research competition focused on the Middle East in honor of Saudi Arabia’s late King Abdullah — a memorial directed by America’s top uniformed military leader. Continue reading »

- Russia Slams S&P Downgrade For “Excessive Pessimism” (ZeroHedge, Jan 26, 2015):

 Well that didn’t take long. Russian Finance Minister Siluanov has responded to S&P’s “junk” downgrade of The Russian Federation:
  • *SILUANOV: S&P DOWNGRADE OF RUSSIA SHOWS ‘EXCESSIVE PESSIMISM’
  • *SILUANOV: NO REASON TO EXPECT `MASS’ DEBT REDEMPTION REQUESTS

Adding in his statement that he “sees no reason to dramatize” the situation, Siluanov adds that the cut should not have any serious effect on Russia’s capital markets. We assume by “dramatize,” he means – they wil not be ‘visiting’ the local ratings agencies offices for a chat anytime soon.

Standard & Poor’s on Monday downgraded Russia’s sovereign credit rating to below investment grade, as the country’s economy continues to weaken.

S&P slashed Russia’s sovereign credit rating to BB+ from BBB- and said the outlook is negative, reflecting its view that Russia’s monetary policy flexibility could diminish further.

This is the first time in more than 10 years that Russian sovereign debt has been rated below investment grade, in what some call “junk” territory. Continue reading »

- Shocking Images Of China’s Dire Pollution Problem (ZeroHedge, Jan 25, 2015):

China has some stunningly beautiful natural landscapes, but, as boredpanda.com explains, they may not count for much when, in other parts of the country, pollution runs totally unchecked. China is very close in size to the USA.  Yet, as The Burning Platform notes, their population is the size of the entire Western Hemisphere, plus Japan, Germany, and France. The land can not support this mass of humanity without very dire consequences, and these shocking photos show what severe pollution people have to deal with in some parts of China…

Description:

Gray State: The Rise (Rough Cut) Directed by David Crowley

I have chosen to release this RAW UNCUT version of Gray State: The Rise to insure versions of this movie reach the public, although this version is from nearly a year ago, you can get an idea, of the direction of the documentary. Any Questions?

(This was the documentary David Crowley was working on when he supposedly killed his wife, 5 year old child and himself. Friends, family and co-workers have said they do not believe it. That he was a great person, with a promising career and an extremely happy homelife. They believe he was murdered.)

- Wheelchair-bound man pushed off curb face-first by evil cop (Intellihub, Jan 25, 2015):

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (INTELLIHUB) — At around 4 p.m. on the corner of Hahn St. and Sunnydale Ave. a wheelchair-bound man was pushed off of the curb, into the street, face-first, by a thuggish police officer who was in the process of detaining the crippled man’s cousin.

While the man in the wheelchair didn’t hit the pavement, he nearly fell out of his motorized chair as the cop tipped him forward in a full-on display of power. Continue reading »

poverty-rates-in-germany
Poverty index from 2007

- Millions of German workers in poverty (Deutsche Welle (DW), Jan 24, 2015):

More than three million Germans can barely make ends meet despite being in work, according to a German newspaper. Growing numbers of struggling workers are cutting back on heating and food.

About 3.1 million wage and salary earners in Germany had an income below the poverty threshold, according to Saturday’s edition of the Saarbrücker Zeitung newspaper.

The paper cited an overview from Germany’s Federal Statistical Office showing the most recent available data, which covered the year 2013. It also showed the numbers of workers struggling to make ends meet jumped from about 2.5 million in 2008 – an increase of 25 percent in five years. Continue reading »

- Gray State – Definition of Husband/Wife murder/suicide (The Rebel Website, Jan 22, 2015):

By Jim Stone

This is what happens when an inconvenient couple stays together all the time and you cannot just murder the “troublemaker”, the spouse has to go too because she/he is always an ever present witness and would report the murder for what it is.

Such an event happened over the Christmas holidays, when anti-establishment movie maker David Crowley was found dead with his wife in an “apparent” “murder suicide”. Such types just mysteriously blink out quite frequently in “murder suicides”, just like those “gas leaks” that are very similar to 2,000 pound bombs which leave craters and strip concrete off of brick.

Crowley was the producer of the new highly anticipated movie “Gray State,” an independent film envisioning a brutal police state, martial law crackdown, complete with biometric identification, a ubiquitous surveillance state and troopers rounding dissidents up into camps. Obviously the movie must have been coming along very well because “they” killed him for it. Sort of lets you know what the plan is even without the movie being released . . . Continue reading »

- Get Ready For Negative Interest Rates In The US (ZeroHedge, Jan 24, 2015):

With Fed mouthpiece Jon Hilsenrath warning - in no lesser status-quo narrative-deliverer than The Wall Street Journal - that The ECB’s actions (and pre-emptive collapse in the EUR) means the U.S. economy must deal with a rapidly strengthening dollar that will make American goods more expensive abroad, potentially slowing both U.S. growth and inflation; and Treasury Secretary Lew coming out his crypt to mention “unfair FX moves,” it appears The Fed (and powers that be) are worrying about King Dollar. This suggests, as Mises Canada’s Patrick Barron predicts, the Fed will start charging negative interest rates on bank reserve accounts as the final tool in the war on savings and wealth in order to spur the Keynesian goal of increasing “aggregate demand”. If savers won’t spend their money, the government will take it from them.

As The Wall Street Journal explains,

The European Central Bank’s launch of an aggressive program this week to buy more than €1 trillion in bonds poses important tests for the U.S. economy and the Federal Reserve.

Europe’s new program of money printing—and the resulting fall in the euro—means the U.S. economy must deal with a rapidly strengthening dollar that will make American goods more expensive abroad. Continue reading »

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is sending the first wave of about 100 US forces to the Middle East in the coming days to train and equip Syrian opposition fighters battling Islamic State militants.

The US troops, mostly special operations forces from the US Special Operations Command (SOCOM), will begin arriving in countries outside Syria in the next few days, Admiral John Kirby, the Pentagon press secretary, said on Friday.

“They’re going to … take a look at what’s there and prepare for further deployments,” according to Kirby, who last week said several hundred troops from foreign governments were also expected to train the Syrian fighters.

Russia Today

‘According the new chief of the U.S. Broadcasting Board of Governors, Andrew Lack, news outlet Russia Today (RT) represents a challenge for America similar to that posed by terrorist organisations.

He stated that “we are facing a number of challenges from entities like Russia Today which is out there pushing a point of view, the Islamic State in the Middle East and groups like Boko Haram”. The nonchalant attitude expressed here represents a growing disconnect between the Western media and their consumers. Continue reading »

The Epochal Consequences Of Woodrow Wilson’s War

Remarks by David Stockman

Committee for the Republic

Washington DC January 20, 2015

My humble thesis tonight is that the entire 20th Century was a giant mistake.

And that you can put the blame for this monumental error squarely on Thomas Woodrow Wilson——-a megalomaniacal madman who was the very worst President in American history……..well, except for the last two.

His unforgiveable error was to put the United States into the Great War for utterly no good reason of national interest. The European war posed not an iota of threat to the safety and security of the citizens of Lincoln NE, or Worcester MA or Sacramento CA. In that respect, Wilson’s putative defense of “freedom of the seas” and the rights of neutrals was an empty shibboleth; his call to make the world safe for democracy, a preposterous pipe dream.

I do not cover the Elite pedophile topic much, but this should be mentioned

If you want to be accepted into the elite class, it has to be possible for those at the very tip of the pyramid to blackmail you with horrific offenses which will be used to destroy you later if you step out of line. Virtually all of the elite have a record of pedophilia and ritual murder, and not just at the Grove. The entire Charlie Hebodo scam was launched just as a major story broke about British royalty and pedophilia, (in addition to heaping sympathy on Jews right when they “needed it” to shut down Palestine yet again. Someone ought to ignore the sampson option and nuke those bastards once and for all, (but that is not the topic now) the following is:

Polar-vortex-554183

- Britain on RED alert as ‘displaced Polar vortex’ to unleash weather hell next week (Express, Jan 25, 2015):

Panicked forecasters raised the alert in the past hour after spotting the freak system on the weather models.

Rare in the UK it is identical to the phenomenon which triggered crippling whiteouts and ice storms in the United States.

Sparked by the frenzied and volatile behaviour of the jet stream it threatens to bring the fury of the North Pole tearing across the country NEXT WEEK.

Forecasters say temperatures will plunge to below -15C (5F) while feet-deep snow drifts on a par with the worst winters in history are likely.

The whole of the UK will be scourged by screaming Arctic gales and blizzards right through the first half of February. Continue reading »

- Greek Deposit Outflows Soar In Run-Up To Syriza Victory (ZeroHedge, Jan 25, 2015):

Despite all the fear-mongering by Nea Demokratia (ND), Syriza’s victory over the incumbent is dramatically larger than expected (exit polls indicate a potential 12 point margin vs 7 point spreads in the run-up). However, as JPMorgan details, the fear-mongery was very evident in bank deposit runs as proxied outflows surge EUR8 billion last week – more than all of December and the rest of January combined

Via JPMorgan Flows & Liquidity

Greek deposit outflows rise sharply this week

The monthly Bank of Greece balance sheet data for the month of December revealed a significant increase in Greek bank ECB borrowing which rose by €11bn in December to €57bn (including €1bn of Emergency Liquidity Assistance). This is more than the €3bn deposit outflow reported for December. It is thus likely that Greek banks had to borrow even more in December to offset not only their lost deposits but likely reduced access to private repo markets, as it happened before during Greek crisis.
