US Industrial Production Surges Most Since 2010 Amid Burst Of A/C Usage
September 14, 2018

Today’s data deluge continues with the latest Industrial Production data from the Fed, which rose 0.4% MoM in August, beating expectations of a 0.3% print, after July’s 0.1% print was revised higher to 0.4%.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mining output rose 0.7% in August, the same as the prior month; it has advanced more than 14% in the past 12 months, supported by substantial increases in the oil and gas sector.

The biggest contributor to the August increase was the index for utilities, which moved up 1.2% in August, as a rebound for electric utilities – i.e., soaring use of HVACs to offset the sweltering August heat – outweighed a small decline for gas utilities.

However the key group inside the report, manufacturing production i.e. factory output, disappointed, increasing 0.2% in August, below the 0.3% expected, and was 3.1% higher than its year-earlier level. The index for durables rose 1.0% while the indexes for nondurables and for other manufacturing (publishing and logging) declined 0.5% and 0.9%, respectively.

Within durables, the largest increases were recorded by motor vehicles and parts, primary metals, and machinery, while the only sizable decrease was registered by furniture and related products. By contrast, within nondurables, only textile and product mills posted again.

With U.S. Bombs, Saudis ‘Killing Innocent Civilians’ In Yemen, US Senator
September 13, 2018

By Deirdre Shesgreen

“Information Clearing House” –  WASHINGTON – Lawmakers in both parties are increasingly alarmed by America’s support for a bombing campaign in Yemen that has left thousands of civilians dead – including 40 children who were killed last month when an airstrike hit a school bus.

The State Department on Wednesday tried to assuage the growing concerns by sending Congress a “certification” stating that the governments of Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates – which have led the bombing campaign with U.S. assistance – are actively working to reduce civilian deaths and to limit damage to Yemen’s infrastructure.

But that State Department missive, which was mandated by Congress as part of a broader defense bill passed in August, did not satisfy lawmakers. Some said the State Department’s report did not match reality and suggested the U.S. should end its military role in Yemen.

“It is as clear as day that the Saudi-led coalition is recklessly – and likely intentionally – killing innocent civilians and children, and they’re doing it with U.S. bombs and so-called targeting assistance,” said Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

Giuliani, “Mayor 9/11,” Claims the ‘Truth Isn’t Truth’
September 13, 2019

On every anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani is cycled through various talking head “news” formats to recount the events of the fateful day seventeen years ago. Giuliani’s veracity about the events of 9/11 had plenty of doubters just after the attacks. However, given Giuliani’s declaration on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on August 19, 2018 that “truth isn’t truth,” Giuliani’s lies about both the Trump administration and 9/11 should be considered holistically as coming from a corrupt liar.

Giuliani replaced John Dowd, a seasoned Washington attorney, as Donald Trump’s personal lawyer in March 2018. Dowd resigned after becoming frustrated over Trump’s constant lying, a bugbear for any attorney attempting to prepare a client for a legal proceeding. In Giuliani, however, Trump discovered a fellow dissembler of the truth.

Giuliani was the perfect mayor of New York to preside over interfering with the largest crime scene in American history, namely, the rubble of the World Trade Center complex. Giuliani’s failure to embrace the truth started much earlier in his government career.

The Ring Of Thunder: Satellite Image Shows Nine Potentially Deadly Storms Currently Girdling The Globe
September 13, 2018

This remarkable satellite image shows Hurricane Florence is one of just nine potentially dangerous storms currently circling around the world.

The image circles some of the points where the most extreme weather is set to batter the world this week, giving a word of warning about the dangers they pose.

Jamaica Weather posted the photograph online, saying: ‘This going to be a crazy end to the week! Take a look across the Tropics.’

Each storm is clearly highlighted on the map and identified with a name, showing that Hurricane Florence is not the only storm looming.

In the image, Hurricane Helene and Hurricane Isaac can be seen circling the Atlantic Ocean while Storm 95L is on a collision course for the Caribbean.

Hurricane Olivia is heading towards Hawaii as Tropical Storm Paul is approaching the west coast of Mexico.

Storm 91W, Typhoon Mangkhut and Storm 27W appear to be heading towards South East Asia as they line up in the Western Pacific.

Hurricane experts say it is unusual for there to be active storms in the Atlantic Ocean and Pacific Ocean at the same time.

‘The thing that’s interesting now is the Pacific is still active, but the Atlantic is very active, which isn’t normal,’ Phil Klotzbach, an atmospheric science researcher at Colorado State University, told NBC News.

‘I’m surprised to see the Pacific and Atlantic active at the same time.’

Since the hurricane season began this summer, there have been nine named storms in the Atlantic, which is above average, Klotzbach said.

There have been 15 identified storms in the Pacific since the hurricane season began.

On Twitter and Facebook, users reacted to Jamaica Weather’s satellite image calling for those in the path of the storms to use caution.
