- How To Be A “Social Media Superstar”? Kim Kardashian Explains (ZeroHedge, Oct 28, 2014):

Making $700,000 per day with her ‘game app’ either gives Kim Kardashian the right to comment on Social Media superstardom or simply reflects an increasingly distracted American public disappearing into dystopian numbness. As the following clip shows, we all have a lot to learn from the curvy Kardashian… or perhaps its circular in its ponziness, social media is the parasite that is dependent on a farce like Kim to exist?

Nowhere is The American Dream more prevalent than… In Asia?

20141027_hope

As Pew Research notes,

As they continue to struggle with the effects of the Great Recession, publics in advanced economies are pessimistic about the financial prospects for the next generation. Most of those surveyed in richer nations think children in their country will be worse off financially than their parents. In contrast, emerging and developing nations are more optimistic that the next generation will have a higher standard of living.

Asians are particularly optimistic about the next generation’s financial prospects. Fully 94% of Vietnamese, 85% of Chinese, 71% of Bangladeshis, and 67% of Indians think today’s children will be better off than their parents. Africans and Latin Americans are also on balance optimistic, while Middle Easterners tend to be pessimistic. And in Europe and the United States, pessimism is pervasive.

Can The Fed just hurry up and print some more optimism!!??

Radiation Levels Have Surged At Fukushima Plant

- Radiation levels have surged at Fukushima plant — 100,000% of previous record high — TV: “Officials say they don’t know the cause… Typhoon may be to blame” (VIDEO) (ENENews, Oct 26, 2014):

NHK Transcript, Oct. 24, 2014 (h/t Deep13th Nuclear Waste Info): [TEPCO] says it has found high levels of radioactive cesium in groundwater in the compound. Officials at TEPCO say a recent typhoon may be the cause… TEPCO officials say water taken on Wednesday from a well had 460,000 becquerels of cesium per liter (Bq/l)… another well contained 424,000 becquerels. Officials say those levels are 800 to 900 times the previous peak. The wells are several meters west of the No. 2 reactor… The utility plans to treat the tainted groundwater and discharge it into the ocean, but local people strongly oppose the plan…

- Bioweapons Expert Reaffirms Belief that Ebola Escaped from a Biowarfare Lab (Washington’s blog, Oct 27, 2014):

Does DNA Sequencing Show that Ebola Is Naturally-Occurring?

In response to bioweapons expert’s Dr. Francis Boyle’s conviction that this strain of Ebola escaped from a biowarfare laboratory in West Africa,  Empty Wheel’s Jim White argues that DNA sequencing shows that Ebola is naturally occurring.

Dr. Boyle sent us the following email, responding to White’s critique:

1.The primary problem with this entire Harvard study is this: These results they admit  come out of the  Kenema BSL4 Lab itself which was up to its eyeballs in doing this dirty biowarfare work there  before it was shut down. So they  did this work and then shut down the lab. Dead labs tell no tales.

As I see it, the biowarriors at  BSL4 Kenema are  exonerating themselves by means of this “study.” This is basically an exercise in Cover Your Biowarrior Butts. Continue reading »

- Can’t Find Any Inflation? Here’s A Place To Start (ZeroHedge, Oct 27, 2014):

Lately, there has been much anguished consternation, especially among the tenured US economics professors (primarily those who make 6-digits or more per year) and of course, the Federal Reserve where as we revealed last week, at least 113 government workers make $250,000 (excluding bonuses) and thus all are confined within the cozy cocoon of America’s “1%ers”, about the so-called complete disappearance and collapse in inflation. So to help these ivory tower-confined individuals in their holy grail to rediscover the inflation that is more than felt by the rest of America, here are two simple charts.

- Blackwater Founder Remains Free and Rich While His Former Employees Go Down on Murder Charges (The Intercept, Oct 22,  2014):

A federal jury in Washington, D.C., returned guilty verdicts against four Blackwater operatives charged with killing more than a dozen Iraqi civilians and wounding scores of others in Baghdad in 2007.

The jury found one guard, Nicholas Slatten, guilty of first-degree murder, while three other guards were found guilty of voluntary manslaughter: Paul Slough, Evan Liberty, and Dustin Heard. The jury is still deliberating on additional charges against the operatives, who faced a combined 33 counts, according to the Associated Press. A fifth Blackwater guard, Jeremy Ridgeway, had already pleaded guilty to lesser charges and cooperated with prosecutors in the case against his former colleagues. The trial lasted ten weeks and the jury has been in deliberations for 28 days. Continue reading »

Demanding QE4.


Beware cliff edge

How Will The Stock Market React To The End Of Quantitative Easing? (Economic Collapse, Oct 26, 2014):

It is widely expected that the Federal Reserve is going to announce the end of quantitative easing this week.  Will this represent a major turning point for the stock market?  As you will see below, since 2008 stocks have risen dramatically throughout every stage of quantitative easing.  But when the various phases of quantitative easing have ended, stocks have always responded by declining substantially.  The only thing that caused stocks to eventually start rising again was a new round of quantitative easing.  So what will happen this time?  That is a very good question.  What we do know is that the the performance of the stock market has become completely divorced from economic reality, and in recent weeks there have been signs of market turmoil that we have not seen in years.  Could the end of quantitative easing be the thing that finally pushes the financial markets over the edge?

After all this time, many Americans still don’t understand what quantitative easing actually is.  Since the end of 2008, the Federal Reserve has injected approximately 3.5 trillion dollars into the financial system.  Of course the Federal Reserve didn’t actually have 3.5 trillion dollars.  The Fed created all of this money out of thin air and used it to buy government bonds and mortgage-backed securities.

- Pentagon To Quarantine Troops Returning From West Africa For 21 Days (ZeroHedge, Oct 27, 2014):

The United Nations’ Secretary-General stated that returning workers from Ebola-stricken nations should not be mandatorily quarantined. President Obama expressed his displeasure at mandatory quarantines and “concerns with the unintended consequences of policies not grounded in science.” So, the news that “Army troops returning from Ebola zones will be held in isolation for 21 days,” will likely raise Obama’s ire. The somewhat pathetic and stunning spin here is that Senior Pentagon officials say it is not a “quarantine,” but rather “controlled monitoring.”

- Sikorski U-turn: Polish ex-FM backtracks on scandalous ‘divide Ukraine’ claim:

Radoslaw Sikorski — the speaker of the Polish Parliament and that nation’s former foreign minister — was forced to apologize after claiming that he overheard Vladimir Putin in 2008 suggest that Ukraine should be divided between Russia and Poland.

A bombshell report published by Politico Magazine over the weekend called “Putin’s Coup” alleged that Sikorski heard that the Russian president told Donald Tusk, then the Polish prime minister, that Poland should “become participants in the divide of Ukraine” during a Polish delegation’s 2008 visit to Moscow.

“He wanted us to become participants in this partition of Ukraine… This was one of the first things that Putin said to my prime minister, Donald Tusk, when he visited Moscow,” Politico’s Ben Judah quoted Sikorski as saying following an interview that formed the basis of the Sunday article.

He explained that the number of troops stationed at three military bases in the east will triple in two years. Siemoniak added that the quantity of military hardware stationed at the bases will also be increased. Continue reading »

On October 14, Brian Hooker and Andrew Wakefield sent an official and detailed complaint to the CDC and the US Dept. of Health and Human Services.

The devastating and explosive complaint concerns scientific misconduct in a now-infamous 2004 CDC study, which gave the MMR vaccine a free pass and concluded the vaccine had no connection to autism.

CDC whistleblower William Thompson was a co-author on that study, and on August 27 he admitted he and his co-authors committed fraud and covered up the vaccine-autism connection. Continue reading »

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush

- Bush clan rallies support for Jeb’s expected presidential run in 2016 (RT, Oct 27, 2014):

Will the White House soon host another President Bush? According to family members, Jeb Bush — a son of former president George H.W. Bush and the brother of the current president’s predecessor, George W. Bush — is eyeing the oval office.

With the 2016 presidential election now nearly just two years away, potential candidates are becoming increasingly pressured to announce once and for all if they’re willing to throw their hat into the race. Former Florida governor Jeb Bush has long been rumored to be considering a run in 2016 under the Republican Party ticket which, if successful, would make him the third Bush to win a presidential election in 30 years. Now, two of his sons are lending credence to those rumors by telling the media that the odds are better than ever that Jeb Bush will run in 2016. Continue reading »

- When Stress Tests Fail – Italian Banks Are Collapsing (ZeroHedge, Oct 27, 2014):

Despite the ban on short-sales – which has never worked in the past to do anything but instil fear in traders’ holding long positions – Italian banks are in free-fall following the utter failure of Draghi’s stress tests to encourage confidence in the European banking system.

  • INTESA, UBI, UNICREDIT, MONTE PASCHI SUSPENDED IN MILAN, LIMIT DOWN

Given the post-“whatever-it-takes” world of domestic sovereign bond-buying, it is no surprise that Italian govvie risk is jumping higher and the FTSEMIB is plunging.

“A relief rally would not be justified,” said Michael Woischneck, a portfolio manager at Lampe Asset Management in Dusseldorf, Germany. “There are still a lot of problems to fix, and Italian banks still have a lot of work to do. Even for the banks that passed, what is there to be relieved about? They still have to find a business model and figure out how to get unanswered questions that a stress test just cannot answer.”

Those substances are only bioactive in their raw & natural form, same with enzymes in fruits and vegetables, which are even more heat sensitive.

So don’t kill (cook) all of your food.

All those commercially available cacao products give you a lot of health destroying refined white sugar and very little (pretty much worthless) cocoa.

Those scientists always want to isolate some compound or create an extract that can be patented, so that Big Pharma can make a lot of money, but nature doesn’t work that way.

And scientists know this for at least 100 years now.

Eat organic fruits and vegetables in their natural form and you get tons of vital nutrients that work in concert for your health and well-being, rather than taking one expensive and most of the time ineffective ‘soloist’ substance produced by a corporation.

Most methods of processing cocoa remove many of the flavanols found in the raw plant

- ​Cup of cocoa a day keeps memory loss away – scientists (RT, Oct 27, 2014):

A tasty drink may give a typical 60-year-old the memory as of a person 20 to 30 years younger. A US study has revealed that cocoa contains bioactive ingredients that reverse age-related memory decline.

Scientists at Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) published the results of a dietary experiment, based on the effects of flavanols, extracted from cocoa beans, on the aging human brain in the journal Nature Neuroscience on Sunday.

A group of 37 healthy volunteers aged from 50 to 69 was randomly divided in two. Each day for three months, they had a specially-prepared cocoa drink, which is not available commercially. One group consumed the drink with 900mg of flavanols, and the other with only 10mg of these compounds.

“If a participant had the memory of a typical 60-year-old at the beginning of the study, after three months that person on average had the memory of a typical 30- or 40-year-old,” said senior author Scott Small in a press-release.

Hungarians revolt against internet tax

- Hungarians revolt against internet tax (PHOTOS, VIDEO) (RT, Oct 27, 2014):

Furious with the government plan to impose tax on Internet data traffic, thousands of Hungarians rallied in front of the Economy Ministry in Budapest to protect the freedom of the internet from the ‘anti-democratic’ measure.

Tens of thousands gathered in front of the Economy Ministry building on Sunday, urging the politicians to scrap the plan that will see internet service providers (ISPs) pay 150 forints ($0.62) for every gigabyte of data traffic transferred over their networks.

Although the draft suggests that ISPs would be able to offset corporate income tax against the new levy, the protesters believe that eventually the new tax burden will end up pinned on common users. The Association of IT, Telecommunications and Electronics Companies has already said the tax would force them to raise prices, Reuters reports.

- In Cold War, U.S. Spy Agencies Used 1,000 Nazis ( The New York Times, Oct 26, 2014):

WASHINGTON — In the decades after World War II, the C.I.A. and other United States agencies employed at least a thousand Nazis as Cold War spies and informants and, as recently as the 1990s, concealed the government’s ties to some still living in America, newly disclosed records and interviews show.

At the height of the Cold War in the 1950s, law enforcement and intelligence leaders like J. Edgar Hoover at the F.B.I. and Allen Dulles at the C.I.A. aggressively recruited onetime Nazis of all ranks as secret, anti-Soviet “assets,” declassified records show. They believed the ex-Nazis’ intelligence value against the Russians outweighed what one official called “moral lapses” in their service to the Third Reich. Continue reading »

They care not how many Estonians, Latvians, Finns, Poles, Yugoslavs or Greeks get murdered or mistreated as D[isplaced] P[ersons] as long as the Jews get special treatment. Yet when they have power, physical, financial or political neither Hitler nor Stalin has anything on them for cruelty or mistreatment to the under dog.

- Air Force prepares to dismantle HAARP ahead of summer shutdown (Alaska Dispatch, May 14, 2014):

FAIRBANKS — The U.S. Air Force gave official notice to Congress Wednesday that it intends to dismantle the $300 million High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program in Gakona this summer.

The shutdown of HAARP, a project created by the late Sen. Ted Stevens when he wielded great control over the U.S. defense budget, will start after a final research experiment takes place in mid-June, the Air Force said in a letter to Congress Tuesday.

The University of Alaska has expressed interest in taking over the research site, which is off the Tok Cutoff in an area where black spruce was cleared a quarter-century ago for the Air Force backscatter radar project that was never completed. But the school has not volunteered to pay $5 million a year to run HAARP.

Responding to questions from Sen. Lisa Murkowski during a Senate hearing Wednesday, David Walker, deputy assistant secretary of the Air Force for science, technology and engineering, said this is“not an area that we have any need for in the future” and it would not be a good use of Air Force research funds to keep HAARP going. “We’re moving on to other ways of managing the ionosphere, which the HAARP was really designed to do,” he said. “To inject energy into the ionosphere to be able to actually control it. But that work has been completed.” Continue reading »

One can’t make this up:

- The Chart That Crushes All Credibility Of The ECB’s Latest Stress Test (ZeroHedge, Oct 26, 2014):

While we would be the last to comment on the ECB’s laughable forecasting capabilities, we do have to note that there is a bit of a disconnect between the ECB’s projections of Eurozone inflation for 2014, 2015 and 2016 as presented in its March, June and September meetings

… and what the market is currently anticipating based on 5Y5Y forwards which as we noted two weeks ago, recently hit an all time low.

The reason we bring this up, is because just after the latest “most serious, most confidence inspiring” stress test was revealed, that perpetual troublemaker, the head of Germany’s IFO Institute, Hans-Werner Sinn, who relentlessly refuses to drink the European Kool Aid, pointed out something rather stunning. According to Bloomberg, in an emailed statement, Sinn said that “ECB avoided modelling a deflation scenario for southern Europe which explains why the capital shortfall was so small for many banks.” Continue reading »

“There are Britons, who, upon wanting to leave have been threatened with death, either directly or indirectly,” the source said. Continue reading »
