UN WARNS NEXT GLOBAL FINANCIAL CRISIS MAY INCLUDE HUGE DEBT DEFAULTS

If the global economy enters a new economic crisis it may lead to epic debt defaults, according to trade economists at the United Nations.

“As capital begins to flow out, there is now a real danger of entering a third phase of the financial crisis which began in the United States housing market in late 2007 before spreading to the European sovereign bond market,” the annual report of the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD).

Following the 2008-2009 crisis, developing countries faced a huge influx of cheap credit. The process was heated by quantitative easing programs in the developed nations.

“Alarm bells have been ringing over the explosion of corporate debt levels in emerging economies, which now exceed $25 trillion. Damaging deflationary spirals cannot be ruled out,” the report says. Under the conditions of slowing global GDP the debt is likely not to be redeemed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What this article does not mention is the trillions in derivatives which may completely collapse, during such a downturn.

Who Is Behind The Riots? Charlotte Police Says 70% Of Arrested Protesters Had Out Of State IDs

"This is not Charlotte that's out here. These are outside entities that are coming in and causing these problems. These are not protestors, these are criminals... We've got the instigators that are coming in from the outside. They were coming in on buses from out of state. If you go back and look at some of the arrests that were made last night. I can about say probably 70% of those had out-of-state IDs. They're not coming from Charlotte."

Christie should be impeached if he lied about Bridgegate

From the prosecution's opening statements in the Bridgegate trial, we're promised evidence will show and that two people — David Wildstein and Bill Baroni — had a conversation with Gov. Chris Christie on Sept. 11, 2013 during which time they talked to the governor about the scheme to close lanes to the George Washington Bridge in a form of retribution against Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich.

She cannae take it, Captain Kirk! USS Zumwalt breaks down

Weird new warship USS Zumwalt has broken down while on sea trials, three weeks ahead of her formal commissioning ceremony.

The futuristic $4.4bn vessel, which features a so-called “tumblehome” hull, suffered a seawater leak into the auxiliary lube oil system for one of her main propeller shafts, according to USNI News.

The defect will take about two weeks to repair at US naval station Norfolk, it was said.

Barger For Trump

Trump has the biker vote!

Ralph Hubert “Sonny” Barger, a still active member of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club and an icon of American individualism, announced on his Facebook page yesterday that he is moving back to Oakland.

And, when he gets there he will register to vote. And, after he registers he intends to vote for Donald Trump for President in November.

However, earlier this month Barger expressed his intention to vote for Donald Trump. On August 13, Barger wrote:

“I, along with Donald Trump, believe the election process is rigged.....

In Dramatic Twist, Wells Fargo Said To Retaliate, Fire Whistleblowers Who Exposed Bank's Illegal Practices

While the recent congressional hearing targeting John Stumpf, in which Elizabeth Warren suggested he should resign and be criminally charged, was nothing more than a "kangaroo court" meant to refocus public anger on banks, with good reason, the reason why we concluded that nothing would actually change is that ultimately there was no evidence the bank's executive management was aware of the bank's illegal, fraudulent tactics involving the creation of some 2 million fake customer accounts to "sandbag" retail banking fees. That assumption, however, may need revision now that CNN reports that it has heard from former Wells Fargo workers - some of whom were named - around the country, who tried to put a stop to the bank's illegal tactics only to be met with harsh, prompt and severe retaliation by the bank.

Second Night of Charlotte Police Riots Devolve Into “Chaos, Looting and Violence”

Editor’s Comment: The disturbing riots and “protests” in Charlotte underscore a larger spiral into chaos. While many of the protests over police shootings have raised attention to the inherent hypocrisies and devaluing of lives, this time, there is no basis, reason or sound justification.

This is a population that has been pushed to the brink and intent on having violence for violence sake. Unfortunately, it is a pattern that has been spreading. Before long, it will overshadow the legitimate grievances and any positive results of protest action, and instead push the country to the point of widespread civil unrest and racially-motivated attacks. This will not help reform police, or promote social justice; it will justify a police state and handily distract from the coming collapse.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Is the government going to try and trigger race riots across the country, to justify a national emergency?

“Why Aren’t I Fifty Points Ahead?!” Watch Unhinged Hillary Go Full Psycho in Most Bizarre Tirade of the Election Yet

If this is an ad to get people to vote, is it so they’ll vote for Trump or…? Because no one is going to want to vote for the wicked stepmother from a Disney movie come to life that is Hillary in this video.

This isn’t just anger over the obvious fact that she’s losing because the majority of America can’t stand her. It’s not just bad acting or failed directing. Maybe a combo of all three with a healthy dose of injectable pharmaceuticals?

The Radioactive Sinkhole In Florida - Phosphogypsum Stacks Are Radioactive & The Government Knows This

A huge sinkhole opened up underneath a phosphogypsum stack at the Mosaic Fertilizer Plant in Mulberry, Florida. You may have also heard that the stack was holding 215 million gallons of radioactive water that was also contaminated with other lovely things such as phosphoric acid. All of this mess drained into the Floridan Aquifer. To have a better understanding of the danger this event poses, how this happens, and a bit of history behind the phosphate mining industry here in Florida you must take the time to watch this video, and to watch the full interview I did with author Gary Pittman about this very subject. Gary worked for Occidental Chemical Corporation for 21 years working his way up to the position of Mining Supervisor. Using his expertise and years of experience Gary gives the listener a detailed yet easy to understand lesson in the phosphate mining industry. Take the time to watch, listen, and learn.

TEXAS GOVERNOR THREATENS TO EXIT THE FEDERAL REFUGEE PROGRAM: "EMPATHY MUST BE BALANCED WITH SECURITY"

After taking in more refugees over the past 12 months than any other state in the U.S., Texas is threatening to exit the federal refugee program, effective 9/30/16, unless the Obama administration agrees to new security measures intended to protect Texas citizens. The demands by Texas Governor Greg Abbot come just days after the recent bombings in New York and New Jersey and in response to Obama's recent announcement of plans to accept 110,000 refugees in 2017, up 57% since 2015

Abbott released the following comments on his website saying, among other things, that the "refugee settlement program is riddled with serious problems" and that the "federal government lacks the capability or the will to distinguish the dangerous from the harmless." Abbott also took the opportunity to blast Obama for "ineptly proposing a dramatic increase in the number of refugees" in 2017 saying that the U.S. is incapable of fully screening immigrants from nations like Syria."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I hope Abbott's stance will inspire other governors to take notice.

Legal, vetted immigration of people who want to assimilate, and embrace the American dream?!?

Absolutely!! Welcome!!!

People who want to enforce their ways of life or religion on everybody else?!?

Thank you, NO!!

'ARRAY OF THINGS' COLLECTS FACIAL BIOMETRICS AND LICENSE PLATES IMAGES

Argonne Labs and DHS are installing over 500 spying devices called the 'Array of Things' (AoT) throughout Chicago and plan to install them in cities across the country. Plans are in the works to replicate the project in the coming years in more than a dozen other cities.

Two cameras mounted in each AoT box will collect data on vehicle and foot traffic, standing water, sky color and cloud cover. They claim the photos taken by the cameras will automatically be deleted within "tens of minutes."

Should we trust them?

The AoT bears a striking resemblance to CCTV's or 'Visual Analytics for Command, Control and Interoperability Environments ' otherwise known as VACCINE.

Please, read my four part series where I explain, how the government turned public and private CCTV cameras into a nationwide surveillance system.

Feds admit they'll use the internet of things to spy on everyone

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These actions are not to make We the People more safe.

These are the paranoid, terrified actions of a government which is out of control; knows that the people no longer trust a thing they say, and realize that people understand that the US government has simply become "the enforcers" of violence and military might with which to protect the one percenters, globally.

There is nothing the government can get from surveilling me than they don't already know, primarily from this website.

I am a Christian pacifist activist, who exhorts her government to achieve their geopolitical goals through hard won, good faith negotiations, rather than war.

I care very much that our military is treated with extreme respect, and as Veterans, that they get the same, top-tier medical care Dick Cheney receives; THEY HAVE EARNED IT.

And as much as I abhor war as a solution to the country's geopolitical disputes, when conflict comes, I want our military to have the best weapons possible. I just want this country to have absolutely exhausted every other means of conflict resolution possible before war happens.

When it comes to logic and good faith negotiations, the US government has absolutely lost its edge here, and gone down "the dark side", a problem to which I bear witness, peacefully, at this blog.

OK, US government, do you have it, now?!?

Terrified yet?!?!? :-)

US Intelligence Officer: “Every Single Terrorist Attack In US Was a False Flag Attack”

Apart from documents that have outlined supposed terrorist threats, like Al-Qaeda, and their connection to US intelligence agencies, like the CIA, there are a number of whistleblowers that have come out adding more fuel to the fire.

The latest whistleblower is David Steele, a 20-year Marine Corps intelligence officer, and the second-highest-ranking civilian in the U.S. Marine Corps Intelligence. He is a former CIA clandestine services case officer, and this is what he had to say.........

Assad Interview: US Airstrikes on Syrian Troops Not a Mistake, “You Cannot Commit a Mistake for One Hour”

Assad, who we used to get told was an inhumane monster who is hurting his people but whom we are told nothing about anymore, makes a good point. If the US accidentally attacked Syrian troops (for an hour), how did ISIS know the "accidental" attack was coming?

By the time these strikes were reported on here in the US, we Americans were told they are a "mistake" and it was all just a big fat regrettable accident.

However, America can't have it both ways. We can't be told how exceptional and amazing our military is, how all strikes are done with "surgical precision," then get told "whoopsies!" on something like this...

Gallup: If Small Businesses Keep Dying “We’ll Lose the Whole Middle Class”

Citing statistics that show a precipitous decline in the comfortable status of “middle class,” Gallup CEO Jim Clifton explained how government/economic interference is killing small businesses and people who used to be employed by them.

The percentage of Americans who say they are in the middle or upper-middle class has fallen 10 percentage points, from a 61% average between 2000 and 2008 to 51% today.

There are three serious metrics that need to be turned around or we’ll lose the whole middle class.

Women's flotilla to Gaza is more than mere symbolism

Amal and Zaytouna, a flotilla of two boats with all-women crews and passengers, set sail from Barcelona en route to besieged Gaza in another maritime attempt to break Israel's illegal blockade on the tiny strip of Palestinian coastal territory.
This is a place where 1.7 million Palestinians have been locked for nearly a decade in what many describe as the "world's largest open air prison", a human laboratory that Israel uses periodically to test its weapons.

Trump: Clinton 'chief emissary for globalism'

Donald Trump on Tuesday evening slammed his Democratic presidential rival Hillary Clinton, calling her the "chief emissary for globalism."

"I'm not running to be president of the world, I'm running to be president of the United States," Trump said during a rally in Kenansville, N.C. "Hillary Clinton is the vessel for all of the global, special interests seeking to run our government and our lives."

Trump argued that unlike him, Clinton fails to prioritize the needs of U.S. citizens, specifically on issues like trade and immigration.

Obama ditches diplomacy, attacks Trump at U.N.

There wasn’t much diplomatic about it: President Barack Obama and United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon repeatedly denounced Donald Trump and his brand of politics here as they addressed leaders from around the world Tuesday.
Three days after declaring that Trump’s candidacy is a threat to American democracy, Obama said that while globalization has its downsides, the wrong response comes “more often from the right” to produce an “aggressive nationalism, a crude populism…which seeks to restore what they believe was a better, simpler age free of outside contamination.”

He didn’t say Trump’s name. He didn’t say Make America Great Again. But he didn’t need to, as he quickly moved into attacking the Republican nominee’s proposed Mexican border wall.

“Today a nation ringed by walls would only imprison itself,” Obama said.
Obama received significant applause from the filled room as he finished.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to President Barak Hussein Obama: sir, the American people have grown tired of, and angry at, a system which collectively puts middle class Americans at the proverbial "back of the bus."

We are tired of an Administration which lies so consistently - about everything - that you and your minions have completely lost the trust of the American people.

Your Department of Labor Statistic's numbers on unemployment (5%, I believe, is the current fiction) are a complete lie, because they do not factor in the 90 + million Americans who have been "out of a job for too long to count, or have given up looking."

Poverty, under your watch, has broken a 50 year record:

That’s rich: Poverty level under Obama breaks 50-year record

3 million more kids have fallen into poverty under your watch:

Report: 3 million more children in poverty under Obama, 22% of all kids

The use of food stamps by desperate Americans has risen 70% under your administration:

Food stamp president: Enrollment up 70 percent under Obama

The outsourcing/offshoring of American jobs continues apace:

28 STATISTICS ABOUT GUTTING OF U.S. ECONOMY THAT WILL BLOW YOUR MIND

Of course, your Corporate Globalist Masters are, generally, very happy with you; you've delivered what you promised them on this issue of offshoring/outsourcing, and
the gutting of the American middle class is pretty much on schedule.

The wars you promised to close out in your 2008 campaign continue to fester, and you've chosen some new wars to start as well.

We are still hopelessly mired in Afghanistan and Iraq, yet you have chosen new wars in Yemen (you remember; the proxy war using Saudi Arabian military, where US supplied white phosphorous has killed civilians, right?!?) and Syria, and you are threatening wars against North Korea, China, and Russia.

When it comes to real, hard-won geopolitical negotiations though which the Us government should be achieving its goals, you, unfortunately, have been a rather dull instrument, despite your "teleprompter eloquence".

You have been a great President for the globalist one percenters; but generally lousy, sir, for the rest of us.

And one of the greatest demonstrations of this is your dogged persistence to get Congress to sign off on the TPP during the "lame duck" period later this year.. There are so many things wrong with it, that I cannot begin to articulate them, but the following is a reasonable summation:

Secret TPP Text Unveiled: It’s Worse than We Thought

Simply put, it will allow more offshoring of American jobs; have Americans fighting countries in which similar jobs pay 65 cents an hour; allow corporations to use slave labor, against which American labor cannot possibly complete; and have global corporations' policies supersede American laws in disputes.

The hard reality is, Mr. President: globalism works only for the huge corporations, and the wealthy elites; it does not work for We the People of the United States of America, and we have come to recognise this.

That is why there may well be positive change coming in November; we have had enough, thank you very much, of your faux populism, and your lies.

Oh, and BTW: the Nobel Prize Nominating Committee wants your Nobel Prize BACK!!!

Good cop, bad cop – Waking up to the error of blind allegiance

We are living in revelatory times. The mask of authoritarian rule is slowly dissolving. The veil is being lifted and the immoral power gained from deception and appropriation is slowly being replaced by a far superior moral power gained from truth and prestige. More and more people are waking up to the fact that power gained from violence is immoral. The era of blind allegiance is coming to an end. But it’s a slow and frustrating process for those few of us who have already remedied such a fear-based, slave-prone disposition and eliminated it from our mindset and lifestyle.

White House: Russia to Blame Even If They Didn’t Attack Aid Convoy

Yesterday’s apparently airstrikes against a UN aid convoy, destroying between 18-20 trucks and killing some 14 Red Crescent volunteers took multiple turns today, with the US claiming they believe that a pair of Russian warplanes attacked the convoy, potentially as “revenge” for the American attack on a Syrian military base the day before, which killed 83 soldiers.

The Russians are denying this, of course, but perhaps the even more unusual angle is that White House officials have subsequently come forward to insist that the US holds Russia responsible for what happened to the convoy, even if they didn’t actually do it.

Obama aide Ben Rhodes argued that because Russia had made a commitment to the ceasefire and to getting aid flowing in northern Syria, it was obviously their fault that something happened to the convoy, no matter what that actually was.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, it's official: both Ben Rhodes and this administration have collectively lost their reality licenses, with this breathtakingly stupid statement!!

Did the US NOT make a commitment to the cease fire, which they destroyed by Saturday's bombing of Syrian military personnel?!?

And why on earth did the US government feel it necessary to keep the terms of the agreement with the Russians secret?!?

And besides, cui bono?!?

Who benefited from the bombing of the aid convoy?!?

NOT Russia, for heaven's sake; and not Syria, certainly.

But the US accusations have absolutely no where to go; Russia has meticulously documented where its personnel and equipment were at the time the convoy got bombed, and it was no where even close to where the convoy got bombed.

When Russia Called to Get US to Stop Syria Strike, US Official Wasn’t There

Weekend US airstrikes against a Syrian army base in Deir Ezzor, a protracted error which killed 83 Syrian soldiers and opened up the base for ISIS to overrun it, carried on longer than it should have, because when Russia made the call to warn the Americans, the guy who was supposed to answer it wasn’t there.

The Russian military called and asked to speak to this “point of contact” official at the coordinating center which is running the US-led bombing campaigns in Syria, and were told he wasn’t available. The Russians called back again and finally got somebody who understood that the US was bombing the wrong target.

The Pentagon dismissed concern about the lapse, saying the contact “wasn’t expecting a call” and therefore didn’t feel obliged to sit next to the phone. Yet as intense US airstrikes were ongoing, in the middle of a US-Russia negotiated ceasefire, it seems like it wasn’t a total shock that a call ended up made.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: the deliberate absence of the US contact made sure that the bombing could last just long enough to coordinate with ISIS as they rushed in to overtake the area.

Why We Are Losing Americans To Prescription Medications?

In 2014, The National Institute on Drug Abuse reported that 25,760 people lost their lives to prescription drugs that year. This marks a nearly three-fold increase in just 13 years. Of these deaths, 6,867 were the caused by either anti-depressants, barbiturates or benzodiazepines. The overwhelming majority were related to the use of opioid pain relievers – which were involved in deaths 3.4 times more than they were in 2001.

“OR WE’LL LOSE THE WHOLE MIDDLE CLASS”: GALLUP CEO

The percentage of Americans who say they are in the middle or upper-middle class has fallen 10 percentage points, from a 61% average between 2000 and 2008 to 51% today.

Ten percent of 250 million adults in the U.S. is 25 million people whose economic lives have crashed.

What the media is missing is that these 25 million people are invisible in the widely reported 4.9% official U.S. unemployment rate.

Let’s say someone has a good middle-class job that pays $65,000 a year. That job goes away in a changing, disrupted world, and his new full-time job pays $14 per hour — or about $28,000 per year. That devastated American remains counted as “full-time employed” because he still has full-time work — although with drastically reduced pay and benefits. He has fallen out of the middle class and is invisible in current reporting.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, Clifton hasn't received the memo: the absolute destruction American's middle class has not been accidental.

It has been deliberate, because protests nearly always start with middle class workers.

FLASHBACK - Iraqi Soldiers Fighting ISIS Bombed by “Errant” U.S. Airstrike

On the front lines of the battle against the Islamic State, suspicion of the United States runs deep. Iraqi fighters say they have all seen the videos purportedly showing U.S. helicopters airdropping weapons to the militants, and many claim they have friends and relatives who have witnessed similar instances of collusion.

“At first we thought it was something fired by Daesh,” said one army solider, his uniform covered in blood from carrying the injured. Daesh is an Arabic term for the Islamic State. “The explosion was very big. We ran. I saw many dead bodies. I saw that one of my friends had lost a leg.”

However, in addition to the death toll, the injured officer also disputed the official version of events. “We were moving forward and Daesh were retreating, when suddenly the bombing took place on the forces that were behind us,” he said. “It was meant to be a secure area.

US Destroying Syria’s Oil Infrastructure Under Guise of Fighting ISIS

The US is considering bombing pipelines in Syria, which it claims is in an attempt to cut off the huge profits being made by ISIS from captured oilfields.

The Independent quotes Julieta Valls Noyes, the deputy assistant secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs during a visit to London, that ISIS was making $2 million a day off oil sales and that the US would consider airstrikes as well as “kinetic strikes against some pipelines” and “actual physical action to stop the flow”.

The trouble with this justification for destroying Syria’s oil pipelines, is that ISIS does not have the capability to use the pipelines to transfer oil. ISIS transports the stolen oil on the back of trucks, and sells it on the black market in Turkey.

Foreign Ministry: Syria reserves its right in demanding US-led coalition to pay compensations for deliberate destruction of economic facilities

Damascus, SANA-Syria affirmed that the US-led coalition’s warplanes have launched tens of raids on the Syrian economic facilities instead of raiding the Islamic State (ISIS) organization and its tanks that transport the stolen Syrian oil into Turkey.

“The US-led coalition’s shelling of the economic facilities and infrastructure, and the unilateral coercive measures adopted by some countries on the Syrian people are the reason behind the mounting difficult conditions Syria is passing through,” Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said in two identical letters sent Wednesday to the UN Secretary General and President of Security Council.

Why Is The U.S. Silently Bombing Syria's Electricity Network?

Of course the US would never bomb anything and not take responsiblity for it.

Both sides will have some electricity and the civilian as well as fighters on both side will be better off than without electricity. No side has a motive to destroy that plant.

But last night the U.S. coalition bombed the Aleppo thermal power plant and destroyed parts of it:

A military source told SANA that warplanes of the Washington alliance violated Syrian airspace and attacked civilian infrastructure in Mare’a, Tal Sha’er, and al-Bab in Aleppo countryside on Sunday.
The source added that the warplanes attacked the biggest electric power plant that feeds Aleppo city, which resulted in cutting off power from most neighborhoods in Aleppo city.

You know what I find absolutely beautiful?

When a person takes over something that is usually left to be done by the government, does it a thousand times more efficiently, and does it with a true sense of compassion.

A common question asked of those of us who object to taxation and big government is, “Who will feed the poor?”

Dolls are last trace of French sisters lost in Holocaust

It was snowing on Feb. 24, 1944, when Jewish children in the French town of Gemeaux were rounded up at their school. Two sisters, Denise and Micheline Lévy, aged 10 and 9, clutched dolls—one pink, one blue—as they were led away to Auschwitz.

A gendarme grabbed the dolls and flung them to the ground, Le Parisien reports, via the Telegraph. A shopkeeper picked them up and gave them to the grandmother of Frédérique Gilles, a 38-year-old schoolteacher, who has now donated them to the Shoah Memorial, the Holocaust museum in Paris.
Note: Often when these fairy tale no evidence stories of the holocau$t start to appear it is a sign Israel is going to start another war.

Auschwitz medic trial halted again. Why Germany still puts Nazis on trial

All that changed with the case of John Demjanjuk, in 2011, a former SS guard who worked at the Sobibór extermination camp in Poland. For the first time, a new generation of prosecutors argued that a guard's involvement at the camp was enough to convict him, despite the lack of evidence linking him to a specific murder. In 2011, the court agreed, ushering in a new wave of prosecution of former Nazis, after such cases had largely dried up in the preceding decades, as the Monitor previously reported.
Note: There were no homicidal gas chambers at Auschwitz or anywhere else and if you don't believe there were you will be put in prison. Fact!
