Pre-Collapse Ramp Up: Retailers Stock Up On Shutters, Organize Security Details Ahead of Financial Meltdown and Social Unrest


With hundreds of billions spent to save the ailing economy of Greece (and the rest of the continent), unemployment rates in excess of 50% among those in their twenties and a solution nowhere to be found, many in Europe and around the world are realizing that this entire system is about to come unhinged.

And when it does, as we have noted on several occasions over the years, there will be riots in the streets.

Retail business owners in Greece and greater Europe are now planning for the worst.

This is not some alarmist overreaction. This is happening right here and now, and people are starting to understand that the consequences of a collapse in Europe, the United States and the world are going to be serious:

The planning, says Dixons chief Sebastian James, may look alarmist but it’s good to be prepared.

Company bosses around Europe agree. As the financial crisis in Greece worsens, companies are getting ready for everything from social unrest to a complete meltdown of the financial system.

Those preparations include sweeping cash out of Greece every night, cutting debts, weeding out badly paying customers and readying for a switch to a new Greek drachma if the country is forced to abandon the euro.

Chief Executive James says the company has contingency plans to shutter up its 69 wholly owned and 29 franchised Greek stores and close them in the short term to protect against any threat of civil unrest and prepare for a switch to a new drachma.

Dixons, using its experience of dealing with riots in London and other British cities last summer – big flat-screen televisions were the looters’ booty of choice – has ordered enough shutters to protect its stores and is working with the Greek police and security groups.

KPMG’s Bayly advises his clients to check the six Cs when preparing for a possible Greek euro exit: cash, contracts, continuity, counterparties, control and commercial. He believes that automotive companies, tour operators and pharmaceutical groups would see the biggest immediate disruption from an early euro exit by Greece.

Bayly also warns companies to guard against the failure of key suppliers or counterparties, to tighten up on controls to avoid errors and fraud, and also to be clear on how they would be affected commercially by possible future changes in patterns of government and consumer spending.

As we highlighted in Just In Time: When the Trucks Stop, America Will Stop , the entire commerce infrastructure is one catastrophe away from seizing up.

We’ve already seen an example of this in Greece when liquidity in the credit system dried up and caused shortages in live-saving medications because customers weren’t able to pay pharmacists, who weren’t able to pay distributors, who weren’t able to pay manufacturers and transporters – and none of them were able to acquire credit terms from banks to keep the cycle going.

There is so much interdependence within the system that it is impossible to predict the exact sequence of events. However, astute readers understand that a breakdown in credit lending, or key manufacturers going belly-up because they can’t cover operating expenses, could lead to serious shortages down the line in businesses that include everything from medicine to food to fuel.

Take a queue from the businesses that have direct relationships with large credit organizations and government insiders. They know something is amiss, and they are taking steps to prepare today, not hoping for a solution that will never come.

It is critical that you reduce your personal counter-party risk as much as possible ahead of the economic destruction to come.

You think 2007-2008 was bad?

That was a private sector collapse. The taxpayers of the world were the backstop – and for the most part business continued as usual.

We’re now to the point where entire nations are beginning to crumble under the weight of excessive spending and debt – and all of their backstops and emergency response plans have been exhausted.

The end result will be a paradigm shift unlike any we have witnessed in our lifetimes. There will be riots. There will be starvation. There will be bloodshed.

25 Signs That The Smart Money Has Completely Written Off Southern Europe


When it comes to the financial world, it is important to listen to what the "smart money" is saying, but it is much more important to watch what the "smart money" is actually doing. The ultra-wealthy and those that run the biggest financial institutions on the planet are far more "connected" to what is really going on in financial circles behind the scenes than you and I could ever hope to be. But if we watch their behavior we can get clues as to what they think is about to happen. As is the case with so many other things, if you want to figure out what is really going on in Europe, just follow the money. And right now, money is rapidly flowing out of southern Europe and into northern Europe. In fact, some large corporations are now pulling the money that they make in Greece during the day out of the country every single night. It is becoming increasingly clear that the upper crust of the financial world considers a Greek exit from the euro to be "inevitable" and that it also considers much of the rest of southern Europe to be a lost cause. Unfortunately, a financial collapse across southern Europe is also likely to trigger another devastating global recession.

Even though all the warning signs were there, very few people actually expected to see the kind of financial crisis that we saw back in 2008.

But it happened.

Now very few people actually expect another "Lehman Brothers moment" to happen in Europe although the warning signs are all around us.

Sadly, most people never want to believe the truth until it is too late.

The following are 25 signs that the smart money has completely written off southern Europe....

#1 Lloyd's of London is publicly admitting that it is rapidly making preparations for a collapse of the eurozone.

#2 According to the New York Times, top global law firms are advising their clients to withdraw all cash and all other liquid assets from Greece....

So their advice is blunt: Remove cash and other liquid assets from Greece and prepare to take a short-term hit on any other investments.

“My personal view is that it is irrational for anyone, whether a corporation or an individual, to be leaving money in Greek financial institutions, so long as there is a credible prospect of a euro zone exit,” said Ian M. Clark, a partner in London for White & Case, a global law firm that has a team of 10 lawyers focusing on the issue.

#3 According to CNBC, large numbers of wealthy Europeans have been moving their money from banks in southern Europe to banks in northern Europe....

Financial advisers and private bankers whose clients have accounts too large to be covered by a Europe-wide guarantee on deposits up to 100,000 euros ($125,000), are reporting a "bank run by wire transfer" that has picked up during May.

Much of this money has headed north to banks in London, Frankfurt and Geneva, financial advisers say.

"It's been an ongoing process but it certainly picked up pace a couple of weeks ago We believe there is a continuous 2-3 year bank run by wire transfer," said Lorne Baring, managing director at B Capital, a Geneva-based pan European wealth management firm.

#4 The President of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia, Charles Plosser, says that the Federal Reserve is advising money market funds to reduce their exposure to Europe....

The Fed and regulators have tried to stress to money market funds, for example, to reduce their exposure to European financial institutions.

#5 The yield on 10-year Spanish bonds is rapidly moving toward the very important 7 percent level.

#6 Many multinational corporations that operate in Greece are now pulling their funds out of the country on a nightly basis.

#7 Juergen Fitschen, the co-CEO of Deutsche Bank, has publicly proclaimed that Greece is a "failed state".

#8 The head of the Swiss central bank has admitted that Switzerland is developing an "action plan" for how it will handle the collapse of the eurozone.

#9 The European Commission has urged all member states to develop contingency plans for a Greek exit from the euro....

Last week, the European Commission said that it has asked member states to make plans to deal with a potential Greek exit, ahead of a second round of Greek elections on 17 June.

#10 PIMCO CEO Mohamed El-Erian says that a Greek exit from the euro "is probably inevitable".

#11 Spanish stocks continue to drop like a rock.

#12 The percentage of bad loans on the books of Spanish banks has reached an 18 year high.

#13 Late on Friday, the Spanish government announced that banking giant Bankia is going to need a 19 billion euro bailout.

#14 Standard & Poor's downgraded the credit ratings of five more Spanish banks to junk status on Friday.

#15 Moody's downgraded the credit ratings of 16 Spanish banks back on May 17th.

#16 According to the Telegraph, "struggling European banks could be seized and controlled by Brussels as part of secret plans being drawn up".

#17 The head of equity strategy at Societe Generale, Claudia Panseri, is warning that European stocks could fall by as much as 50 percent if Greece leaves the euro.

#18 Economist Marc Faber is warning that there is now a "100% chance" that there will be another global recession.

#19 There seems to be an increasing attempt to pin the problems that Greece is now experiencing on the behavior of Greek citizens. The following are some of the shocking things that the head of the IMF, Christine Lagarde, said in a recent interview....

"Do you know what? As far as Athens is concerned, I also think about all those people who are trying to escape tax all the time. All these people in Greece who are trying to escape tax."

Even more than she thinks about all those now struggling to survive without jobs or public services? "I think of them equally. And I think they should also help themselves collectively." How? "By all paying their tax. Yeah."

It sounds as if she's essentially saying to the Greeks and others in Europe, you've had a nice time and now it's payback time.

"That's right." She nods calmly. "Yeah."

And what about their children, who can't conceivably be held responsible? "Well, hey, parents are responsible, right? So parents have to pay their tax."

#20 According to the Telegraph, an unidentified member of Angela Merkel's cabinet has stated that Germany simply will not "pour money into a bottomless pit".

#21 This week the Bank of England is holding a "secret summit" of global central bankers to address the European financial crisis....

The summit will be dominated by central bankers including the host, Sir Mervyn King, Governor of the Bank of England. Mario Draghi, president of the European Central Bank, and Zhou Xiaochuan, governor of the People’s Bank of China, have been invited.

#22 According to Zero Hedge, a major German newspaper is reporting that a Greek exit from the eurozone is a "done deal"....

"The Greece-exit is a done deal: According to the German economic news from financial circles EU and the ECB have abandoned the motherland of democracy as a euro member. The reason is, interestingly, not in the upcoming elections - these are basically become irrelevant. The EU has finally realized that the Greeks have not met any agreements and will not continue not to meet them. A banker: "We helped with the Toika. The help of the troika was tied to conditions. Greece has fulfilled none of the conditions, and has been for months now."

#23 According to CNBC, preparations are quietly being made to print up and distribute new drachmas should the need arise....

British banknote printer De La Rue is drawing up plans to print new drachma notes in the event of a Greek euro exit, according to an industry source with knowledge of the matter.

The world's biggest security firm G4S expects to be involved in distributing notes around the country.

#24 Citibank's chief economist Willem Buiter is warning that any new currency issued by the Greek government could "immediately fall by 60 percent".

#25 Reuters is reporting that a planning memo exists that suggests that Greece could receive as much as 50 billion euros to "ease its path" out of the eurozone.

If Greece does leave the eurozone, the cost to the rest of Europe is going to be astronomical. The following is from a recent article by John Mauldin....

The debate among very knowledgeable individuals and institutions as to the future of Europe is intense. There are those who argue that the cost of breaking up the eurozone, even allowing Greece to leave, is so high that it will not be permitted to happen. Estimates abound of a cost of €1 trillion to European banks, governments, and businesses, just for the exit of Greece. And that does not include the cost of contagion as the markets wonder who is next. Keeping Spanish and Italian interest-rate costs at levels that can be sustained will cost even more trillions, as not just government debt but the entire banking system is at stake. Not to mention the pension and insurance funds. If the cost of Greece leaving is €1 trillion, then who can guess the cost of Spain or Italy?

As I have written about previously, a Greek exit from the euro would cause the "bank jogs" that are already happening in Spain and Italy to accelerate.

The problem in Europe is not just government debt. The truth is that the entire European financial system is in danger of melting down.

Unfortunately, there are no more grand solutions on the horizon and so things are going to continue to get worse for Europe.

As I have talked about so many times, the next wave of the economic collapse is going to start in Europe, but it is going to deeply affect the entire globe.

During the next major economic downturn, the official unemployment rate in the United States will rise well up into the double digits.

Once that happens, perhaps many more Americans will finally figure out that they should have been paying much more attention to what was taking place in Europe.

Is the Nibiru System Now Observable From Above the Chemtrail Layer? articleThis morning I received a message from Barbara Townsend, Admin of the Planet X Town Hall about a news report published on May 28, 2012 by the web site, titled, Nibiru System In Full Color As Seen By A Passenger On-Board A Commercial Aircraft over Melbourne, Australia May 28.2012 Exclusive

The photo in this report is stunning at first glance, but having over a decade of experience with such reports, I’ve learned to look beyond the photo, to what is being said about it.

That means, going first to the comments. There I found the usual cranks and disinformationalists at work, save for one anonymous comment that one could say is more revealing than the photo itself.

To their credit, released this story on Memorial Day, thereby catching the disinformation wolf packs off guard. A damn smart move, because the attacks were not as polished as usual. This turned out to be a a real windfall for a full time researcher like me. GO

Death Chain: Antarctic HAARP Activation


Vatic Note: What is very interesting about all this below, is if it becomes a tool to depopulate blaming so called "enemies" of the third world war, REMEMBER, there is no way to know who and which country is killing its population. Just a reminder. That is all that needs to be said, but since the leaders of all those countries are in on the WW III scam, it really doesn't matter. Treason is within each country for going along with the murdering of millions of their citizens by the international khazar neocon/neolib Illuminati controlled bankers and minions.
By: Terrence Aym
Date: 2012-05-12

Researchers, worried about the weaponization of the global High Altitude Atmosphere Research Program (HAARP) network, suddenly have much more to fear. The Russians, Chinese, and Americans are racing to power up their Antarctic HAARP facilities and bring them online. Once the newest HAARP stations are fully activated and linked into the intricate HAARP grid, the power can be exponentially expanded. Forget nuclear arsenals, HAARP could become the most fiercesome force on the planet.

What are they up to in Antarctica?

Mysterious structures appearing at the bottom of the world are cropping up like mushrooms in a forest after a downpour.

What’s going on in Antarctica? HAARP is going on: three competing superpowers are in a secret, breakneck race to be the first to control the world’s ionosphere.

Deadly electronic stranglehold on Earth

Many researchers delving into the Byzantine labrynth of the world of HAARP conclude that the network of ionospheric manipulators is nothing less than a diabolocal technology—a perversion of Nicola Tesla’s early 20th Century work—malevolant machines engineered for a dual purpose: to unravel the mysteries of the ionosphere and then hijack it.

The discordant harmonies of the HAARP war may be the causal factor behind mass animal deaths around the world; it may be creating eerie harmonics striking fear into people on several continents; and it could be causing maddening sonic attacks driving some people to the brink of insanity in England and Canada.

Some say the ultimate purpose may be to eventually weaponize earthquake-prone faultlines and semi-active volcanoes eventually using the Earth itself to strike out against enemy nations, or at the very least to hold them in check under the threat of potentially horrific destruction.

Assessing the burgeoning worldwide HAARP network, the giant Antarctic installations are the last link in a chain of high-energy death that now girdles the Earth like a deadly necklace.

Although “The US military deny HAARP alleged geo-warfare capacity but admit that HAARP is used for long range submarine communication or searching for metals deep within the earth’s surface. HAARP has a known research presence in Antarctica despite all military research in Antarctica being banned under the moratorium.”

European Parliament’s Subcommittee on Security and Disarmament

International organizations investigating the more sinister aspects of HAARP include the European Parliament’s Subcommittee on Security and Disarmament. During February 1998 the parliament held a public hearing addressing their concerns over the emerging HAARP technology.

HAARP high energy vortex splits apart the sky

“NATO and the US had been invited to send representatives, but chose not to do so,” the subcommittee noted. “The Committee regrets the failure of the USA to send a representative to answer questions, or to use the opportunity to comment on the material submitted.

“HAARP is run jointly by the US Air Force and Navy, in conjunction with the Geophysical Institute of the University of Alaska, Fairbanks. Similar experiments are also being conducted in Norway, probably in the Antarctic, as well as in the former Soviet Union.

Incredible energy: HAARP high altitude energy burst

“HAARP is a research project using a ground based apparatus, an array of antennae each powered by its own transmitter, to heat up portions of ionosphere with powerful radio beams. The energy generated heats up parts of the ionosphere; this results in holes in the ionosphere and produces artificial lenses.

“HAARP can be used for many purposes. Enormous quantities of energy can be controlled by manipulating the electrical characteristics of the atmosphere. If used as a military weapon this can have a devastating impact on an enemy. HAARP can deliver millions of times more energy to a given area than any other conventional transmitter. The energy can also be aimed at a moving target which should constitute a potential anti-missile system.

USA complex: HAARP Antarctica linked to Arctic complex

“The project would also allow better communications with submarines and manipulation of global weather patterns, but it is also possible to do the reverse, to disrupt communications. By manipulating the ionosphere one could block global communications while transmitting one’s own. Another application is earth-penetrating, tomography, x-raying the earth several kilometers deep, to detect oil and gas fields, or underground military facilities. Over-the-horizon radar is another application, looking round the curvature of the earth for in-coming objects.

Disturbing von Karman vortices over the South Atlantic

“From the 1950s the USA conducted explosions of nuclear material in the Van Allen Belts to investigate the effect of the electro-magnetic pulse generated by nuclear weapon explosions at these heights on radio communications and the operation of radar. This created new magnetic radiation belts which covered nearly the whole earth.

Incredible HAARP cloud vortex appears over Pole

“The electrons traveled along magnetic lines of force and created an artificial Aurora Borealis above the North Pole. These military tests are liable to disrupt the Van Allen belt for a long period. The earth’s magnetic field could be disrupted over large areas, which would obstruct radio communications. According to US scientists it could take hundreds of years for the Van Allen belt to return to normal. HAARP could result in changes in weather patterns. It could also influence whole ecosystems, especially in the sensitive Antarctic regions.

Is HAARP network morphing into Tesla superweapon?

“Another damaging consequence of HAARP is the occurrence of holes in the ionosphere caused by the powerful radio beams. The ionosphere protects us from incoming cosmic radiation. The hope is that the holes will fill again, but our experience of change in the ozone layer points in the other direction. This means substantial holes in the ionosphere that protects us.

“With its far-reaching impact on the environment HAARP is a matter of global concern and we have to ask whether its advantages really outweigh the risks. The environmental impact and the ethical aspect must be closely examined before any further research and testing takes place. HAARP is a project of which the public is almost completely unaware, and this needs to be remedied.” — Report by the European Parliament Subcommittee on Security and Disarmament, February 5, 1998.

The HAARP resonance high energy global network

Since 1998, researchers have discovered many more potentially ominous capabilities evolving from advanced HAARP technology such as the ability to dangerously manipulate the planet’s geomagnetic field and geophysical processes.

Such technology, fully unleashed, may well prove beyond the capability of any human to fully control.

Ascension Rock, Mt. Shasta


Millions have woken up… will you?

The mountain called, I answered…

Naturalist and author John Muir said of Mount Shasta:
“When I first caught sight of it over the braided folds of the Sacramento Valley, I was fifty miles away and afoot, alone and weary. Yet all my blood turned to wine, and I have not been weary since.”[8]

I woke up the day before the eclipse to declare, “I am a master manifestor, therefore I will arrange an adventure to Mt. Shasta”. A few phone calls later, an eclipse group gathered, a hybrid car procured and a loose plan put into action, it was Mt. Shasta or bust… for the grand alignment. Now I must say, John Muir’s comment is absolutely correct, long before you reach Shasta, you see her, and the magnificence of this mountain is breathtaking. I was in deep gratitude just to be in her presence.

We stopped at the Headwaters to fill our jugs with sacred water where many people were gathered to do the same. There stood Kokopelli in all his glory playing a specimen of a didgeridoo to the waters. It is strange to be surrounded by people from all over the globe who jointly share in the same consciousness, belief systems and behaviours. There we all gathered, the rainbow tribe, the lightworkers, the wayshowers, the believers, the visionaries, and the dreamers of planet Earth. There we all gathered, united by common cause, to usher in the power and glory of this 26,000 year alignment.

The mountain was crowded, everyone in search of the perfect place in which to view the eclipse. My small entourage simply let our hearts lead the way, eventually locating a pleasant place on the mountain behind a “group” of like-minded others. I was drawn to this particular spot on the mountain because of the instruments I heard, and the baby & animal energy I saw that was part of the larger group. Little did I know, we sat behind an organized expedition of people who follow a path called Ascension Now, these beautiful souls had travelled from far and wide with their own plan.

I enjoyed their tuning forks, bagpipes, drums, singing bowls and various other musical instruments. They were extremely generous with their glorious live food corn tortillas, sprouts and guacamole and they were kind enough to share some much-needed eclipse glasses (I wouldn’t have seen a thing without those special specs). Without further ado, and with much OM(ing), chanting, singing and praising on the mountain, the much-anticipated solar eclipse began over Mt. Shasta. The first major Mayan prophesied portal, the return of the God Quetzalcoatl (the Christ consciousness), the dawning of the new age was underway….

Now I sat there in deep contemplation, pondering about all of the uncertainty that was occurring in the consciousness of global reality and somehow my mind strayed to remembering the Pacal Votan prophecy. His prophecy states, that we cannot enter the new age under the dissonance of our current method of counting time, the 12 month 60 minute in an hour clocking system. He is adamant that in order to restore harmony to our Earth, we must connect with a more natural rhythm, the 13 moon, 28 day cycles. He is clear that biospehric destruction is our fate if we continue on our most current path, specifically in regards to time. Hence, at the end of this closing age, humanity will experience “The Great Shaking”. We are definitely knee-deep in the Great Shaking… and this Great Shaking will not… and cannot cease until all disharmonious systems have been cast aside. This quite honestly could take decades.

We have all been waiting on this year 2012, this eclipse May 20th, 2012, this portal 12-12-12, this alignment 12-21-12. What is crucial to understand, is nothing earth shattering happened on any of these already experienced days, and most probably nothing earth shattering is going to happen on the much-anticipated future dates. Although, the energies are pouring in, the changes are here, the new age has dawned, and like a stack of dominoes, we will witness imbalanced structure after structure collapse.

I have lived the last year in extreme gratitude. I am off the system of time, I sleep, wake, eat, create, work and play all when I feel like it. I live in complete harmony with my body’s natural rhythms and cycles. I honour the new moon, full moon, dark of the moon, eclipses, equinoxes, solstices and all the midpoints. I listen to the animals and watch the clouds. I honour the Earth, always. The old counting system has no meaning for me other than to loosely pay attention to when the bills are due or when an appointment has been scheduled. I usually begrudge both for interfering with my flow.

I dared to allow my extreme life changes in without resistance (geographic relocation to another country with four kids, new project that initially had no funding, seperation from my husband of 16 years, disenfranchisement from my culture, food, and community). I listen to my spirit in all matters, small and large. I am living from my heart and living out my passions. I have done my part in this Great Shift. And, quite honestly, I have been fully supported with ease and grace. Like my good friend from Real Beauty always says, “it’s not for the weak of heart”. All I can do at this point in time though is remain in gratitude, hum a beautiful tune and continue to believe in a better tomorrow for all of humanity…

Onward and upwards to the June 5-6th lunar eclipse, the Venus transit and more exciting changes for those paying attention and willing to live their dreams in the year 2012.

Ascension Rock, Arrival, Home… the 5th Dimension!

Wall Street Banks Secretly Build The World’s Largest Private Army


Vatic Note: This group of articles proves those doing this are in fact high treason traitors, and you know what that means. Arrests are now legal, by the people under our full functioning constitution and prosecution just like the underground did in Europe in WW II and they executed sentencing as well. With them building a private army to move against the United States of America and her people, they are prima facia traitors just based on their actions. Any American that cooperates is also a traitor and should think twice about it when the chips are down.
Well, at least we can say these satanist illums are clever, even if arrogant. Its the arrogance that will bring them down. It always has and it always will. You would have thought they would have learned that over these many thousands of years, but alas, in-breeding and incest does that to ya.
No common sense or learning from experience and definitely a complete lack of wisdom. But then that is also what happens when money is your god and addictions are your pay off. How pathetic and demeaning is that???? LOL
It means they totally lack a higher level of consciousness, a realm they are unable to achieve. That is also their weakness because that is where creativity resides and adaptability and spontenaity, which they completely lack. They are fearful control freaks, who are anal retentive, with nothng to sustain their courage and trust so they can relax and move further into new space in their agenda and see other more viable and productive options.
Its their stupid war games to test their false flags that always without exception gives them away. its why they are so far behind in their schedule. Heck, I still see container trucks speeding through town to finish contruction and supplying those underground facilities. They are still trying to protect their sewer and water and communications lines by digging up actual roads and trying to hide them under the roads, down about 12 feet deep, as if we didn't see it and could not dig them up. LOL See what I mean about their arrogance? guess what we have up here??? EARTH REMOVAL EQUIPMENT AND BIG MASSIVE SHOVELS. LOL
They don't even have them finished yet, nor stocked with supplies and WATER?? Given what they have done with the weather, they are seriously short of water and guess what? When you over process water, it loses it ability to sustain your human condition and consciousness and more impotantly it will affect your ability to grow healthy food, I don't care what kind of seeds you have. Now, how stupid is that??? They have actually bought into their own propoganda about water. LOL Boy are they in for a huge surprise. I guarantee you we will be here waiting when they TRY to come back up. If they even survive our ability to dig and interfere with all their systems.
We are powerful beings and we need to understand just how afraid of us they are and use that to take them down.
Wall Street banks have secretly taken over US firearms and ammunition manufacturers and the world’s largest mercenary firms in a stealth build up private military force.
Posted by Alexander Higgins - May 16, 2012

A Daily KOs article reveals that Wall Street banks have used private equity firms to acquire and launch a massive stealth takeover of private security firms, US ammo and gun manufacturers, uniforms, silencers and an army of mercenaries to build what amounts to the world’s largest private army. (VN: We published a blog showing Soros was buying up ammo companies, and keep in mind he also organized, funded and has controlled the OWS so called movement that has done nothing since its inception except to keep real rebels from rebelling and messing up their agenda before they are ready).
At the same time the private mercenary companies they now control, which include the likes of Dynacorp and the notorious name changing Blackwater/Xe Services/Academi, have been authorized under Department of Defense DIRECTIVE NUMBER 3025.18 to actually conduct policing operations inside the United States. (VN: Just a reminder that Gates bought Blackwater Mercenaries, and anyone else who tried to build a private military would be arrested for sedition, since a military is only to be used to overthrow a government and that is high treason. Therefore, my dear "freedom fighters", put Gates name first on your list, Soros second and go from there.)
The article reveals Citi Bank, Bank of America, Barclays, and Deutsche Bank have provide huge amounts of funding to two private Wall Street equity firms, Cerebus and Veritas Equity, which in turn have used umbrella companies such as Freedom Corp., to engage in stealth takeovers and weapons stockpiling which has consumed the likes of several gun manufacturers and ammunition manufacturers including Remington, Cobbs, H&R, Marlin, Dakota, and Bushmaker.
Furthermore, the same private equity firms have taken over companies involved in the “crowd control industry”.
One such example is CPI which manufacturers microwave and radio frequency crowd control pain inducers similar to the US Military’s heat gun which has been mentioned for deployment to control Occupy protestors.
All of this comes following news that the Department of Homeland Security has purchased 450 million rounds of ammunition banned by the Geneva Convention which is coupled with reports that feds are buying up all surplus ammo and even ordering stores to cease sales to civilians.
At the same time a DHS informant says that the DHS is preparing for a civil war and recently leaked army manuals reveal mass military detention centers are being prepared inside the US for a War On Terror ‘strategy shift‘.

Coming To An Occupy Near You – The Military’s New Microwave Heat Ray Gun

Coming To A Protest Near You - The Army's New Microwave Heat Ray Gun

Days after the first news of the military’s new microwave heat ray surfaced we get our first in-depth media reports on the new technology developed to crush protests.

Previously I reported on the military making preparations to crush the Occupy Wall Street protests.

That report began by pointing out Pentagon plan’s to deploy 20,000 troops within the US to deal with civil unrest.
Then I pointed out the horrible provisions in the NDAA, such authorization for the Military to be deployed to attack any nation in the world without congressional approval, including inside the United States.

Furthermore, I warned the bill allows the military to treat American Citizens – such as Occupy Wall Street protestors – as terrorists by labeling them as threats to national security, and detain them indefinitely in military prisons or even secretly target them for assassination.

That was followed by pointing out he Feds have already charged a man as an enemy combatant supporting terrorism just for uploading a video to Youtube.

Of course the threat of Occupy protestors being labeled as a terrorists were realized when leaked documents revealed the police classified the Occupy Wall Street as a terrorist group alongside Al-Qaeda.

I ended that report with a video clip from an analyst warning that the Army has been put on standby to be mobilized against Occupy Wall Street protestors at any moment.

Then, just few days ago we received word of the military’s first plans to deal with protests during events of civil unrest – a microwave heat gun crowd control cannon.

That article described the a technology in writing and showed a brief heat gun cannon in action.

Now we have our first corporate media reports on Army’s new pain ray gun with more details and the military plans for using the weapon.
That video was embedded on that article titled “Watch a Fox News Reporter Get Zapped by Military’s Wild New ‘Heat Ray’”

The new reports reveal this weapon was developed over 15 years and deployed to Afghanistan in 2010 where it reportedly was never used in an operation while the pentagon is touting the safety of the device saying there has been over 11,000 field exposures to the weapon.

What is highly suspicious is that is now, after 15 years, the pentagon denies purchasing any of these guns yet the there are there are widespread media reports that the military is now unveiling its new crowd control weapon?

Quick Note About Desperate Lies by Super Mario


I have no idea what the stock market will do on Friday (nor does anyone else) but I did notice a quick flip on the futures from red to green in the early hours of the morning following preposterous lies by Italian prime minister Mario Monti.
Please laugh with me about the following ridiculous report: German Bonds Decline as Monti Damps Greek Euro Exit Speculation
German 30-year bonds fell for the first time in three days after Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti said Greece is likely to stay in the euro, and Italy can help persuade Germany to support Europe’s “common good.”
If you expect to see more preposterous rumors, you will not be disappointed.

Memorial Day: Signs in the Heavens, the Earth and in Your Life


On Monday we celebrate “Memorial Day”. It is a day that we set aside to remember those who have sacrificed their lives over the years, so that we might be free and safe here in the United States of America.

“Memorial Day”, is to help us remember.

The Bible also wants for us to celebrate other “Memorial Days”. Days in which the Lord has shown us His mighty power, His Love, and who He is. Days in which we might “Remember” who our God is, and that He has the power to deliver us.

Exodus 12:14 “So this day shall be to you a memorial; and you shall keep it as a feast to the LORD throughout your generations. You shall keep it as a feast by an everlasting ordinance

This was the day that the Lord delivered 2.5 million slaves from their slavery, into freedom and a land full of blessing.

This deliverance came by the shedding of the blood of a Lamb that would free them from their slavery. That day was “Passover”, when the Angel of death came and when He saw the blood of the Lamb on the doorposts of the house, He would “Pass Over” that house and not destroy the first born of the house. The Egyptians did not believe in the Blood of the Lamb, they put none of His blood on their homes. They suffered the consequences of that unbelief by the death angel when He took their first born sons, including Pharaoh’s own firstborn son.

It is interesting that the 2.5 million people were delivered by “The Blood of a Spotless Lamb”, just as we today can only be saved and cleansed of our own sins by Jesus, God’s only Spotless Lamb.

There are other kinds of Memorials that the Lord intends that we set up for ourselves in our lives. Remembrances for those times when things are not going that well. Reminders that the Lord can and will deliver us, if we will only trust Him and wait upon Him.

There is a Memorial that the Lord set up in the Heavens, that is intended to remind us how great and powerful our God is:

Psalms 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork.

There are memorials that the Lord created in the world that should remind us that God exists, and that He is the One that holds everything together.

Romans 1:20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse…

There is the Memorial that the Holy Spirit left for us in our Bibles. Places that remind us that other people just like us, with all their own struggles, that God was faithful and mighty to delivered them throughout their lives. They are now in Heaven, where we shall be some day soon.

Romans 15:4 For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope.

Memorials in the Heavens.

Memorials in the Earth.

Memorials in our own lives.

Today we will look at these three kinds of Memorials that the Bible speaks of, and if we are paying attention, the Lord will build our faith through these Memorials.

The first Memorial we want to look at, is the one that the Lord set up in the heavens that remind us how great our God is:

Scientists are only today beginning to realize just how incredibly large and complex and perfectly balanced the Universe is. The Universe is so perfectly balanced that if any part of the universe were to be changed, it would throw off the balance of billions of stars and planets. The Galaxy that we live in , the Milky Way, is so perfectly balanced so as to allow Life to exist on the Earth, that if the Milky way Galaxy was not placed 2/3rds of the way out from the center of the Milky Way Galaxy, none of us would be alive.

It has become absolutely clear that An intelligence has Created the Universe, and specifically the Earth, specifically for Human beings.

For many years, scientists criticized the Bible because they said that it claims that the Earth it flat because of the reference in Isaiah of “The Four Corners of the Earth.”

Isaiah 11:12 He will set up a banner for the nations, And will assemble the outcasts of Israel, And gather together the dispersed of Judah From the four corners of the earth.

The Marines are said to be “In the Four Corners of the Earth”, the winds are said to come from “The Four Corners of the Earth.” This is a phrase that is used by many to indicate the whole earth, or the four extremities of the Earth.

Actually, 700 years before Jesus came to the earth and long before scientists knew that the earth was round, the Prophet Isaiah wrote:

Isaiah 40:22 It is He who sits above the circle of the earth, And its inhabitants are like grasshoppers.

Clearly the Holy Spirit is describing the Earth as a Sphere, long before any man knew that it was a sphere.

A Memorial for us, to remember that the Bible is the Word of God.

The Book of Job says that:

Job 26:7 He stretches out the north over empty space; He hangs the earth on nothing.

Job is believed to be the oldest of all the Old Testament Scriptures, written during the time of Abraham, about 1,500 years before Jesus came to the earth, or about 3,500 years ago.

Here the Holy Spirit accurately and scientifically describes the fact that the Earth as “Hanging on Nothing”. The ancient pagans believed that the earth was balanced on the back of an Elephant that rested on the back of a Turtle. Other pagans said that Atlas carried the Earth on his back.

The Bible says that the “Earth Rests on Nothing”,

We know today that the Earth hangs in space, suspended in space by gravity.

Job Described the fact that “He stretches our the North over empty Space”.

An amazing recent discovery by Astronomers found that the area to the North of Earth’s Axis towards the Polar star is an almost completely empty space, devoid of any stars or planets.

This is an empty space in the North of more than 300 million light years across. Our Milky Way Galaxy is 100 million Light years across. A light year is the distance that light travels at a speed of 186 million miles per second, for one year. 300 Million miles, with hardly a single star, is an amazing empty space. In every other direction from earth as you look, there are an abundance of stars. But not in the North.

In Isaiah chapter 14, where Lucifer makes the statement that he “Wants to be like God and live where GOD lives in the farthest sides of the NORTH”.

Isaiah 14:13 For you have said in your heart: “I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation On the farthest sides of the north

Is that vast empty space in the north, that Astronomer have recently discovered, the place where Heaven is located? We don’t know, but the Bible describes the places of the North as being the place where God lives. The Bible declared this fact long before Astronomers ever had a telescope powerful enough to find out that there was a vast empty space in the north.

Again, a Memorial in the Heavens to the fact that the Lord lives and inhabits the heavens.

Secondly, there are memorials in the Earth to us as reminders of the Lord’s existence and His great power.

Finally after decades, scientists have concluded that the Earth and our Solar system are “Anthropic”. This means that Scientists have discovered that the Earth and the Solar System we live in have striking evidences that the earth was “designed” by a superior intelligence to allow human life to exist here”.

Scientists now say that “There are an astonishing number of scientific variables within a very narrow range, that allows human beings to exist here on the earth.”

  • If we were just slightly closer or slightly farther from the sun, life would not be possible on earth.
  • If the earth was 2% farther from the sun, the planet would be too cool for a the winds, and cloud cycle that waters the earth, everything would die.
  • If the earth was 2% closer to the sun, the earth would be too warm for a the wind, cloud cycle that waters the earth, everything would die.
  • If our sun was any closer to any other sun, in the universe, there would be no life on earth.
  • The Earth is 2/3rds water and 1/3rd land. If the proportions of water to land were different, all life would die.

Our moon is much larger in relation to the size of earth, than other planets moons are.

  • Because the moon is larger, it has the right amount of gravitational pull on the earth that keeps us tilted at 23.5 degrees
  • Exactly 23.5 Degrees is what caused the oceans to have movement that cleanses the earth through the tidal cycles the moon creates by its pull on the earth.
  • If the tilt of the earths axis was greater than 23.5 degrees, the earth would have massive continental flooding and long periods of darkness.
  • If the tilt of the earths axis was less, the areas around the equator would be too hot for life and the Ice caps would be gigantic.

Our sun is exactly the right size that the earth needs to keep the earth rotating at 1070 miles an hour.

If the earth did not have an exact 1,070 mile per hour rotation:

All plant life would burn during the day, and freeze at night. If we rotated just 100 miles an hour faster, The winds on the earth would be so high that they would destroy everything

The distance that the earth is from the Moon is perfect.

If we were just 1/5th closer to the moon, the tides would be so strong that they would cover up all of the land twice a day. If we were farther away from the moon or had no moon, the earth would “Wobble” like Mars does, causing major catastrophic changes in our weather that would kill us all.

Finally, The air that we breath on the earth has exactly the right mixture of gases:

  • 78% Nitrogen, 21% Oxygen, .92%Argon, .035% Carbon Dioxide, and .035% other gases.
  • If we had just 6 percent less oxygen (15%) all of us would suffocate.
  • If we had just 9% more oxygen (25%) spontaneous fires would break out all over the earth because oxygen is so flammable.
  • If there was even a slightly less amount of carbon dioxide on the earth, every plan would starve to death.

A Mathematician with a lot of time on his hands, computed all the variables in this delicate balance on earth and in our solar system that make life possible.

There are literally thousands of these very delicate balances that make life possible, that if even one of them were to be changed not one of us could live on the earth. It has been calculated that it is beyond any mathematical possibility that all these very delicate balances on the earth that make life possible, could happen by accident. This leaves only one other possibility; they were created this way by an Intelligence that is beyond our ability to comprehend.

This tiny planet called earth, is so finely tuned and delicately balanced, that it is virtually impossible that this absolute perfect balance needed to sustain life, happened by sheer accident.

These Delicate Balances that we can see in the Earth are our “Memorials” In the Earth that remind us that because our God did make everything for us, that He will continue to take care of us and sustain our lives.

Thirdly, there are those Memorials that the Lord has left for us in our own lives:

Romans 15:4 For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope

Every person that has lived on the earth before you, was just like you.

Even those persons listed in the Bible that are called “Great Men and Women of Faith”, were just sinners like you and I. None of them were any more Spiritual or better equipped than you are. All of them failed, all of them doubted. They all had problems with patience, their tempers, and their mouths. They all lied just as we have, they all lusted as we do, they all had terrible moments of deeply hurtful trials, just like you do.

In the Book of Joshua there is an interesting story, when Israel was near the end of their journey through the desert for 40 years. The Lord brought them to the edge of the Jordan rive, and after they crossed it, they were promised that thy would enter into the land that the Lord had prepared for them.

Joshua 3:1-17 Then Joshua rose early in the morning; and they set out from Acacia Grove and came to the Jordan, he and all the children of Israel (2.5 Million), and lodged there before they crossed over. And Joshua said to the people, “Sanctify yourselves, for tomorrow the LORD will do wonders among you.” Then Joshua spoke to the priests, saying, “Take up the ark of the covenant and cross over before the people.” So they took up the ark of the covenant and went before the people. And the LORD said to Joshua, “This day I will begin to exalt you in the sight of all Israel, that they may know that, as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. You shall command the priests who bear the ark of the covenant, saying, “When you have come to the edge of the water of the Jordan, you shall stand in the Jordan.’ ” So Joshua said to the children of Israel, “Come here, and hear the words of the LORD your God.” And it shall come to pass, as soon as the soles of the feet of the priests who bear the ark of the LORD, the Lord of all the earth, shall rest in the waters of the Jordan, that the waters of the Jordan shall be cut off, the waters that come down from upstream, and they shall stand as a heap.” So it was, when the people set out from their camp to cross over the Jordan, with the priests bearing the ark of the covenant before the people, and as those who bore the ark came to the Jordan, and the feet of the priests who bore the ark dipped in the edge of the water (for the Jordan overflows all its banks during the whole time of harvest), that the waters which came down from upstream stood still, and rose in a heap very far away at Adam, the city that is beside Zaretan. So the waters that went down into the Sea of the Arabah, the Salt Sea, failed, and were cut off; and the people crossed over opposite Jericho. Then the priests who bore the ark of the covenant of the LORD stood firm on dry ground in the midst of the Jordan; and all Israel crossed over on dry ground, until all the people had crossed completely over the Jordan.

Crossing a river is not that big of a deal, except that the Holy Spirit says here that this was during “The Harvest Season”.

The Harvest Season happens in the spring time, when the winter snow is melting from Mount Hermon, and as a result of this snow runoff, The Jordan river is at its highest level of the year. Every other time of year the Jordan river is only about 100 feet wide, this time of year the Jordan river is over 1 mile across! Why did the Lord wait till the Harvest season when the Jordan River is at Flood stage, to lead his people across the Jordan river? Why did He pick the Time of the year when it was the most difficult, instead of the time of year when it would be more easily crossed?

This crossing of the Jordan river was a greater miracle than the crossing the Red Sea.

The Red Sea simply parted and folded back on itself. The Jordan River is a Raging torrent 5,000 feet across, that suddenly stopped. Where did all that water go? We don’t know, but surely this is even a greater miracle than the parting of the Red Sea.

At the parting of the Red sea, all Moses had to do was raise his staff and then the Lord would part the waters. This time, at the parting of the Jordan River, the people have to participate themselves in order for the water to part and stop flowing.

Joshua 3:13 And it shall come to pass, as soon as the soles of the feet of the priests who bear the ark of the LORD, the Lord of all the earth, shall rest in the waters of the Jordan, that the waters of the Jordan shall be cut off, the waters that come down from upstream, and they shall stand as a heap.

Why didn’t the Lord make it as easy for them this time, as He did the last time?

Man always looks for the easiest way, the least line of resistance. Jesus looks for the way that will grow the greatest Character in us. When building your character, the hardest way is often the best way for us. The Lord is more concerned with building your Character than your Comfort.

Many of you are thinking right now: “Well the Lord must be trying to build a lot of Character in me right now because I sure have been having a hard time lately!”

You see, the Lord will do greater and greater works in your life as time goes by, but to see these greater works, will require greater trials. With these greater trials, there will be the need for greater trust than the last time you went through a trial.

This time, the waters did not part until the people stepped into the raging river. Imagine what they were thinking; “Okay, last time we just stood still and watched the Lord work, this time we have to step into that raging river, what if we step in and get swept away and the Lord Doesn’t part the waters?

We call this “Stepping out in faith”

The name of the place where they are “Stepping out In Faith”, is called Bethabara, which means “House of Passage”.

1,400 years later John The Baptist will baptized Jesus here at this same place that they are crossing. Today, many of you are going through your own “House of Passage”. You are going to need more faith than you had the last time you were in a trial, because this one is even more difficult.

In the walk of faith with Jesus will constantly be stretching us. This is where we run into problems because if we don’t understand what is happening and we don’t like it.

“Lord why is this happening?”

“Lord why did you allow this?”

The person of faith, knows that trials happen and the reason, is that the Lord is working in our life to stretch our faith. The person of faith knows that the Lord promised that “It will all turn out for good—to those who love the lord and are called according to his purposes”. (Romans 8:28)

The Lord wants to bring you into a greater trust, so he brings you into a greater trial. Until you are fully committed to Jesus and fully committed to believing that He is working and will make it turn out for good, no matter what is happening you will not have any peace. Once you are fully committed, then anything can happen and you will let it happen, and not fight against it, and still have peace.

“A growing faith says: “I accept my circumstances without understanding why”

No explanation is needed. I am committed anyway. Jesus is in control. I am committed to trust. Therefore I have peace.

Without this firm commitment:

We will constantly be restless. We will be searching for answers. We will want to get out of our situation, change jobs, change marriages or even change the city we live in. We will be trying to use our intellect to figure everything out.

Are you in your “Bethabara?”, your house of passage into a deeper faith?

Joshua 4:1-7 And it came to pass, when all the people had completely crossed over the Jordan, that the LORD spoke to Joshua, saying: “Take for yourselves twelve men from the people, one man from every tribe, and command them, saying, “Take for yourselves twelve stones from here, out of the midst of the Jordan, from the place where the priests’ feet stood firm. You shall carry them over with you and leave them in the lodging place where you lodge tonight.’ ” that this may be a sign among you when your children ask in time to come, saying, “What do these stones mean to you?’ Then you shall answer them that the waters of the Jordan were cut off before the ark of the covenant of the LORD; when it crossed over the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan were cut off. And these stones shall be for a memorial to the children of Israel forever.”

Perhaps what you are going through right now will cause you to trust more and complain less. Theses things that you are struggling through right now are your “Memorial Days”.

Places that you will be able to mark in your future where you were tested, but you grew. Days in which you hurt, but you were helped. Monuments that you have built that remind you that no matter what happens, the Lord will be faithful and deliver you.

Happy Memorial Day, It is going to be a great one.

Solar Eclipse 2012 and Earthquakes


A ring of fire in the sky will be seen from Taipei, Taiwan to Taos New Mexico in an Annular Eclipse on 20 May 2012. The blazing circle will drift in a northeasterly direction over the Pacific Ring of Fire along seismically active Japan, right over Tokyo. It will cross south of the Aleutian Islands of Alaska where the Moon lining up in front of the Sun will achieve its longest illusion of shooting a great big hole in the Sun’s center leaving a fiery circlet. Then the band of flame will glide down the Northern Pacific to ring in fading late afternoon sunshine (local time) over northern California, Southern Oregon and the gamblers staggering out of casinos in Reno, Nevada, into its anemic golden light. Around sunset in New Mexico, the Sun will give Hopis in the Four Corners and New Mexicans of Taos and Santa Fe a “Golem” of a melting ring as it sinks behind the mesas into molten clouds of sunset.

Many more of us in the northern half of the Pacific Rim will enjoy varying degrees of solar dimness on the twentieth. My corner of the region, Puget Sound, Washington, will not see a ring but a great disk overshadowed to look like an arch of flaming horns – a solar frown. People in much of southern China, South Korea, Northern Japan, Southern Alaska and people living along the entire Pacific coastline of the USA will enjoy similarly “horny” heavenly portents – south of northern California, a solar Cheshire Cat smile.

While living off and on in India during the 1980s and early 1990s, I became aware of Hindu folk tales that warned people not to go outdoors during eclipses because they believed the shadow of the Moon opened a portal for evil forces out of the skies to bring malefic consequences to anyone or any place under shadow. Many villagers retreat from their bazaars and fields to lock themselves away in shuttered huts and houses until light returns as the eclipse passes. This belief is especially strong in folklore about a total eclipse rather than the annular kind.

I certainly do not avoid the fading light or darkness of eclipses. Far fetched from scientific fact as such wife-and-chai-walla tales might seem, I predict that science in our future will discover that there is a subtle electromagnetic phenomenon working here. A subtle, elusive gravitational force follows the shadows of eclipses with volcanic and seismic activity a day, a week or up to 18 months to two years after it has passed.

For instance, I post this blog on 18 May 2012. Exactly 32 years ago on this day, Mount St. Helens in Washington State blew apart in a lateral explosion killing 57 and inflicting $1.1 Billion in property damages. The pyroclastic flows leveled hundreds of square miles of prime mountain forests with a blast force equivalent to 1,600 atomic bombs with the explosive yield of the Hiroshima blast. That means seven megatons for the initial blast that made the volcano mountainside slide, unleashing the lateral explosion. Before the first eruption spent itself, it added another 24 megatons of force and expelled a great ash cloud across the United States. This was the most violent volcanic eruption ever recorded in the lower US 48 states. It just so happens that on 26 February 1979, the shadow of a total eclipse had passed over Portland, Oregon and the seemingly dormant St. Helens caldera 15 months earlier before it blew up.

(Read more about the seismically active aftermath of those areas cast in the shadow of great eclipses, click on total solar eclipse 1999 and the great total solar eclipse 2009.)

Los Angeles annualar eclipse, 1994.

Some good news. Annular eclipses may not have as much influence on seismic activity. Some of you might be thinking now about the last Annular Eclipse of 1994 to cross over the coast of California. That year also recorded the last big quake to rock LA. The quake did not begat the eclipse. It happened in May 1994 and gave sprawling Los Angeles, rather than Taos and Santa Fe a ringed fired sunset to remember. No quake of any significance happened afterwards. The 6.7 magnitude Northridge Quake took place in January 1994, over four months before the annular eclipse.

If there are influences to consider that might make Sunday’s annular eclipse seismically significant it will need some cosmic help from other astronomical factors commonly influencing earthquakes and volcanic activity, such as the New and Full Moon. As you can see clicking on earthquakes, I have listed in that article a detailed and rather shocking parallel between the most devastating quakes in history taking place a few days in, on, or a few days beyond a Moon in New or Full phase. Add to this accounts of the influence of planet Uranus Squares with Pluto, or the Sun and you will find a mysterious correlation to quakes and the planet that in astrology rules sudden upheaval and chaos. Uranus is especially powerful when it is in either a 90-degree inharmonious aspect or pulled in opposition with the planet Pluto, that rules Capricorn, an earth (seismic) sign.

It just so happens that Uranus is 7 degrees Aries – well within the two-degree orb (direct influence) of a square with Pluto at 9 degrees Capricorn on the day of the annular eclipse, 20 May 2012.

Astrologically speaking, brace yourself Sunday. It will mark the end of relatively quiet times that my oracle foresaw in prophecies for 2012. We begin a period from end of May until mid-November that will see the square of Uranus in Aries pit rebellious fire and temper against immovable, status quo loving, big business overlording and big government bungling Pluto in earthbound Capricorn three times.

The first of these squares began around 11 May. Already you see quakes of economic and political consequence emerging, shaking the euro monetary union with political and economic quakes. The Dow Jones Industrial has undergone its worse string of losing days in many years: 13 out of 12 days plunging in minus territory.

The vibrations of the square have at last forced European leaders to pull their heads out of the shifting, shuttering sands of technocratic-cum-bureaucratic denial to face something my oracle has long forecast for the summer of 2012.

Greece will default and depart the euro monetary union.

It will trigger a domino effect that may see Portugal, Spain and even the third largest continental economy, Italy, leave off the euro for lire.

Back in November of last year, I set down the Oracle’s observations. These explained in detail why the transit of earthy, economic reality checks one might expect from the end of Saturn’s two-year pass through Libra, the sign of balancing. It would do little to influence European heads of state and banks from procrastinating and postponing solving the looming euro crisis in the first half of 2012:

In 2012 Saturn advances into its final degrees of Libra which will mean an intensification of the urgency to bring about economic solutions and economic policies to forestall a return of double dip recession, especially in potentially hot tempered…[economically troubled] regions of this Cold Depression: the American and euro zone economies. There’s some forward progress until early February when Saturn succumbs to another long and lingering retrograde. Expect an economic crisis point to flash in February in Europe and later in America.

Predictions for 2012
Chapter Three:
The Decline and Fall of the Euro-man Empire?

February 2012 was a turning point. It was the last time a Greek coalition government would pass the demands of international lenders before May’s national elections changed that government for one that cannot govern and now threatens a new election on 17 June that could take Greece off the euro completely.

In February, Greece began to feel the full pain of draconian austerity measures. Their economic deep depression officially began, as did the public’s rebellion against these measures. The unthinkable spread virally ever since. The Greek people began contemplating as necessary an Orpheusian journey through Hades (Pluto’s) dark economic underworld to find and bring back to the surface their Persephone of a new future hope: life beyond the euro: a Greek drama of an inflated drachma.

The Oracle already foresaw what comes in the summer of 2012 in the autumn of 2011:

Forward motion to arbitration will be stuck for the first half of 2012 until Saturn goes direct course in June, but once again, this is badly timed under negative stars. A whole lot of collectively unconscious mass-muddy emotion floods into the month of June because Jupiter begins its mind-fuck in Gemini as it squares murky, dreamy, spiritually idealistic Neptune who can’t easily recognize the reality of its self-sabotaging idealism. Finally, yet importantly, Uranus (revolution, chaos) begins a second and far more powerful square with Pluto in Mr. Big Business, corporate Capricorn.

Hold onto you horns, bull market, a big bear market is poised to pounce. It is going to be a bumpy financial ride for the Europeans and Americans by summer of 2012, a true period of financial crisis for European banks that American banks could absorb. GDP in America will slow to nearly nothing. That might turn out to be the good news because I suspect the best chance for a break up or downsizing of the euro monetary union is slotted for June through November 2012 – the length of a long and dire Uranus-Pluto, year-defining square.

Predictions for 2012

The Decline and Fall of the Euro-man Empire?

Brothers in Arms - Fratelli Italiani, Militari Italiani


I know that Indians are pragmatic people, but I also understand Italians are stubborn ... I propose that we boycott all Indian goods sold in Italy, check fabrics, objects, clothes and everything made in India, do not go into Indian restaurants do not buy Indian ethnic foods. It’s our prerogative to choose what to buy, when their court of justice, pragmatically will choose where our soldiers have to go on trial, we will resume buying from them ..

So che gli Indiani sono persone pragmatiche, ma so che gli Italiani sono gente fantasiosa... Propongo di boicottare tutte le merci Indiane vendute in Italia, controllate i tessuti, gli oggetti, i vestiti e tutto cio' che e' made in India, non entrate in ristoranti Indiani non acquistate cibi etnici con origine Indiana. E' una nostra prerogativa poter scegliere, quando la loro corte di giustizia pragmaticamente scegliera' se lasciare processare i nostri maro' in Italia, riprenderemo ad acquistare da loro..

Cash Crunch Hits Greece, Government Stops Paying Pharmacies, In Turn Pharmacies Make Patients Pay Full Cost


The Troika wants Greece to make another cut in health-care spending including drugs. However, the government is already not paying pharmacies. In turn pharmacies demand 100% payment or patients do not get drugs. Please consider Greeks pay full price for medicines

Millions of Greeks are being forced to pay full price for essential medicines because the state health system has run out of cash to pay pharmacies for supplying prescriptions, health officials said on Wednesday.
Pharmacy owners staged a 24-hour nationwide strike to press the government to start paying arrears of €250m for prescriptions issued in March and April after last-minute talks on Tuesday between Panagiotis Pikrammenos, the prime minister, and union officials broke down.
The dispute highlights Greece’s mounting cash flow problems amid recent political turmoil. While the finance ministry achieved spending targets agreed with international lenders, social insurance funds used up half their annual budget allocations in the first four months, according to official figures.
“There is a cash crunch. … The state has stopped funding [the National Organisation for Health Care Provision] EOPPY, and they have stopped paying us,” said an official from the PanHellenic Pharmaceutical Association. ‘We cannot continue to subsidise the health service out of our pockets.”
The move to make patients pay the full cost of prescription medicines started last month when state payments were suspended as Greece headed for elections. Pharmacies are owed a total of €520m by EOPPY and other social insurance funds for prescriptions supplied in the past year, the same official said.
Patients who previously paid prescription charges of between 10 and 25 per cent are now having to pay the full price for medicines, including those used to treat cancer and heart conditions, and seek refunds from social insurance funds that are members of EOPPY.

More Blood From Turnips
Greece is going to miss its next budget targets and in response will have to hike taxes or cut more spending. More tax hikes will mean more business failures and still lower revenues.
Just what does it take for the idiots in Brussels to see that Greece is insolvent and the current plan to extract more blood from turnips cannot possibly ever work?

'Political Correctness' Is Totalitarian Mind Control


Monday, May 21, 2012

David Kupelian

By David Kupelian

“PC is, strictly speaking, a totalitarian philosophy.” —Newsweek, Dec. 24, 1990, “Thought Police” cover story

A major engine for the left’s insatiable quest for power goes under the strange name of “political correctness”—an insidious frontal attack on common sense and conscience through language manipulation.

Many people mistakenly regard political correctness as just a nutty liberal fetish for not hurting people’s feelings. Words and phrases are continually decreed to be “insensitive” to various “minorities” and therefore replaced with euphemisms so as to avoid real or perceived offense.

People who are mentally retarded used to be called “idiots,” “imbeciles” and “morons”—psychological terms that correspond to different IQ ranges (0-25 for idiots, 26-50 for imbeciles, 51-70 for morons). But as those words gradually came to be considered offensive, the euphemism “retarded” came into vogue. When “retarded” came to be regarded as insensitive, new-and-nicer euphemisms like “intellectual disability” and being “intellectually challenged” emerged, culminating with “special.” It’s hard to be offended over being “special.”

In like manner, the deaf became “hearing impaired,” the blind “vision impaired” and the crippled “mobility impaired,” inspiring a new breed of cocktail-party jokes wherein the bald are “folically challenged” and so on.

More subversively, however, people’s ignoble or criminal qualities became disguised and excused with euphemisms: “Illegal aliens” became “illegal immigrants” and then “undocumented immigrants” and presto-chango, something bad was magically transformed into something good. Homosexuals became “gay,” abortion advocates became “pro-choice” and atheists became “brights,” each euphemism converting a negative association into a positive one. Today, increasing numbers of people refer to pedophilia as “intergenerational sex” and child molesters as “minor-attracted persons” or MAPs. (In Islam, the popular euphemism for pedophilia is “child marriage,” just as adultery is called “temporary marriage.” Really.)

Of course, Islam has become a major beneficiary of political correctness, reminiscent of what George Orwell called “Newspeak” in his novel “1984.” After 19 Muslim terrorists, acting in the name of Islam, murdered almost 3,000 Americans in a wanton act of war on Sept. 11, 2001, the government and media, to avoid offending Muslims, declared Islam to be a “religion of peace.” The Islamic jihad declared on America was mysteriously referred to by our leaders as a “war on terror” involving some unnamed enemy. But even that awkward and evasive expression was deemed too insensitive toward Islam, so under Obama the euphemizing turned surreal when “war on terror” morphed into “overseas contingency operations.” Likewise, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano came up with a friendly new phrase for mass-murder terror attacks. Announcing that she was deliberately avoiding the term “terrorism” in speeches because “we want to move away from the politics of fear,” she adopted the term “man-caused disasters.”

All of this is not, however, just a matter of annoyingly manipulative “word games.” Our civilization is literally being turned upside-down through the strategic redefinition (and therefore transformation) of our society’s operating principles.

Today’s most obvious case in point: Barack Obama, a far-left radical manifestly hostile toward free-market capitalism and American exceptionalism—in fact, to just about everything American—but who campaigned using powerfully evocative words of national restoration and reconciliation. “Hope,” “change,” “fairness,” “justice,” “reform” and “transparency” would usher in a bright new era of “healing” and “unifying” America and the world through this charismatic young leader’s “post-racial,” “post-partisan” presidency. What we got instead was a jarringly narcissistic, supremely demagogic and corrupt Chicago politician, lacking both in experience and wisdom, and displaying breathtaking contempt for America’s Constitution and its best-in-the-world system of government.

If the ongoing language war consisted solely of one man’s use of emotionally compelling catch-phrases—like Obama’s current re-election favorites (“Everyone gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same set of rules”) and his ceaseless appeals to raw envy (attacks on “millionaires and billionaires,” “hedge-fund managers” and “oil-company executives”)—it wouldn’t be difficult for truth to prevail.

But the political and cultural left has hijacked virtually our entire language in the last couple of generations. It has redefined many key words, phrases and concepts, changing not only the words we use, but the way we think. Consider:

Equality” has been utterly redefined. To previous generations, equality—as in Jefferson’s phrase in the Declaration of Independence that “all men are created equal, and endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights”—referred to our being equal in our God-given rights before the law. Today’s idea of equality, however, is based on the virtual repudiation of meaning and morality and God Himself. Good and evil are basically “equal.” As I write in “The Marketing of Evil”:

Today, in the rarified but toxic air of multiculturalism and political correctness, all cultures and all values are of equal value. The most ignorant, oppressive, suffocating, women-hating kind of culture—where people’s hands and feet are amputated as punishment for petty offenses—is now worthy of equal respect to Western culture, which has provided most of the world’s knowledge, progress, food, medicine, technology, quality of life, representative government, and liberty. This moral inversion, which proclaims that all cultures are equal, has extended to virtually every area of society.

Love” too has been redefined. At its finest, love is a spiritual quality of selfless, sacrificial caring about others, epitomized by Jesus when He said on the cross, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” The soldier who falls on an enemy grenade to save the lives of his fellow warriors acts out of love. But today, “love” has reached a low point—the word is used to sanctify same-sex marriage and celebrate what once were called “vile affections.” Even pedophiles creepily talk about “men and the boys they love” to justify their crimes. After all, how can love be vile? For many, our idea of “love”—basically, our feelings of attraction toward anything to which we are addicted—is now firmly in the gutter, like “equality.”

Justice,” likewise, has been redefined. Phrases such as “social justice” and “economic justice” are euphemisms for confiscating, by threat and raw force, what belongs justly to others—in other words, injustice. Likewise, “affirmative action” is imposed and defended in the name of justice, but is inherently unjust: The most qualified applicant for a job is turned down in favor of another, because that other person has the right skin color. That used to be called racial discrimination (a great injustice), but now the same act is rationalized as “social justice.”

Freedom Is Slavery

In Orwell’s “1984,” the outside walls of the “Ministry of Truth” (headquarters for propaganda and revisionist history) are adorned with three “Newspeak” phrases—slogans of the political party ruling the total surveillance state of Oceania. They are: WAR IS PEACE, FREEDOM IS SLAVERY, IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.

America today is rapidly becoming Oceania, where many key political and cultural concepts actually amount to the opposite of what their labels profess:



A 180-degree inversion of reality has been codified within our political and cultural vernacular. Whereas the poor and disadvantaged once were the grateful recipients of charity, thanks to the generosity of individuals, churches and organizations, today what used to be charity is an “entitlement.” The idea that charity—whether through private-sector generosity or governmental “safety-net” programs—is something to which the recipient is “entitled” is bizarrely presumptuous and discordant to all right-thinking people. It’s almost as though the government intends to program recipients of charity to become arrogant and ungrateful; after all, why would you be grateful for receiving something to which you were already entitled?

Likewise, “tolerance” today often amounts to not only acceptance, but virtual celebration of sexual immorality—or at the very least, an agreement not to utter or write a word of disapproval over immoral, corrupt or self-destructive behavior. However, homosexual activists condemning the “intolerance” of others are notoriously intolerant of all who hold to the millennia-old moral code of the Western world.

Why are the most perverse, immoral and confusing programs imaginable being instituted so easily throughout our nation’s public schools under the banner of “anti-bullying”? Because “gay” activists figured out that the best way to intimidate everyone into embracing their agenda was to package it that way. This is pure conditioning. For most people, the very thought of opposing any “anti-bullying” program is chilling, because we fear being condemned as haters of children.

The emotional programming inherent in words and phrases is so compelling that it affects our behavior in many areas of life. So, for instance, many conservatives automatically conclude that “environmentalism,” “conservation,” “hybrid” vehicles, “recycling” and “organic” foods are things to avoid, just because they associate them with liberals.

The Hidden Power of Political Correctness

The whole idea of political correctness is an assault on the freedom of the human mind.

The operating principle behind political correctness is raw intimidation: In a politically correct culture, if you dare use certain words—and by logical extension, even think a certain way—you are ignorant, insensitive, intolerant, bigoted or hateful.

If you criticize the president of the United States as a “socialist” or “Marxist,” for instance, you will likely be accused of “McCarthyism.” Regardless of the real history of the “McCarthy era”—yes, there really were Soviet agents honeycombed throughout the U.S. government—the phrase has become a verbal weapon with which the left attacks conservatives.

(Personal story: As a guest on Sean Hannity’s “Great American Panel,” I used the words “socialist” and “Marxist” to describe Obama,and rattled off highlights of far-left associations and exploits from his teen years to his presidency. Liberal panelist Bob Beckel, taking offense at my use of the word “Marxist,” turned to me and angrily accused me of being “worse than Joe McCarthy,” insisting I should “apologize to the president.” Apologize for what? Telling the truth? For the record, I like Beckel, he’s a very nice man off-camera.)

The point is, the weaponization of a word like “McCarthyism” has nothing to do with history or reality; it is the intimidation factor that’s programmed into the word—almost like a post-hypnotic suggestion—that we automatically associate with fears of being ostracized, diminished, marginalized and ridiculed. Remember Saul Alinsky’s famous Rule No. 5 from “Rules for Radicals”: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.”

Nobody wants to be scorned and mocked, and therefore many of us, consciously or unconsciously, avoid intimidating situations by refraining from standing up for what we really believe.

At its core, then, political correctness is nothing more nor less than the unjust intimidation of others into thinking and speaking a certain way. As such, it is pure totalitarian mind control.
