Is The COT Report Still Valid Or Is It Being Misreported?
September 18, 2018

By Chris Powell via the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee (GATA)

Ted Butler writes: “It is not just the fact that it is fairly easy for the CFTC to uncover the false reporting of positions that persuades me that little actual misreporting is occurring currently. It is more the fact that the current reporting of positions proves that silver and gold are being manipulated in price and, further, that JPMorgan is the prime manipulator.

“Why lie and falsely report when you can report truthfully and openly manipulate? Moreover, my allegations of manipulation by JPMorgan are derived directly from positioning data published by the CFTC.

“CFTC data show that JPMorgan has been the single largest buyer of Comex silver and gold contracts on the unprecedented downturn in price, making it the single biggest beneficiary of the downward price manipulation. I don’t know it’s possible to state the case in more precise terms. If the single biggest beneficiary of a manipulative downturn in price is not the prime manipulator, then who is?”

Yet JPMorganChase repeatedly has claimed that it has no position of its own in the monetary metals markets and trades them only for clients:

Republicans Are Itching To Move Forward On Brett Kavanaugh Confirmation After Accuser Christine Blasey Ford Calls For FBI Probe
September 18, 2018

Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who has accused President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, said an FBI investigation should be “the first step” before she testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

However, Sen. Chuck Grassley, the Iowa Republican who chairs the panel, said Tuesday night there is no reason to delay the process any further. Grassley canceled Thursday’s planned committee vote on Kavanaugh and scheduled a hearing on the allegations for Monday.

The latest developments escalated an already intense drama in the nation’s capital, as Republicans, who had been on track to quickly confirm Kavanaugh with their thin 51-49 Senate majority and likely establish a conservative majority on the top court for decades to come. Ford’s accusations against the federal appellate judge, however, have thrown the process into turmoil.

Republican senators still want to move the process along, but they have been hesitant to show any antipathy toward Kavanaugh’s accuser. Trump has also been remarkably cautious in his comments about the situation. The president, who is known for scorched-earth tactics when he or someone in his circle stands accused of something, has continued to praise and back Kavanaugh, but he has also expressed a desire to hear out Ford, as well.

Big Brother: China’s Chilling Dictatorship Moves To Introduce Scorecards To Control Everyone
September 19, 2018

CHINA’S chilling dictatorship is moving quickly to introduce social scorecards by which all citizens will be monitored 24/7 and ranked on their behaviour.

The Communist Party’s plan is for every one of its 1.4 billion citizens to be at the whim of a dystopian social credit system, and it’s on track to be fully operational by the year 2020.

An active pilot program has already seen millions of people each assigned a score out of 800 and either reap its benefits or suffer its consequences — depending on which end of the scale they sit.

Under the social credit scheme, points are lost and gained based on readings from a sophisticated network of 200 million surveillance cameras — a figure set to triple in 18 months.

The program has been enabled by rapid advances in facial recognition, body scanning and geo-tracking.

Constitutional Crisis? Pelosi, Schumer, Schiff And Warner Demand DOJ-FBI Defy Trump Declassification Order
September 18, 2018

By Cassandra Fairbanks

In a shocking letter intended to undermine the President, and his authority over the Executive Branch, multiple high ranking Democrats sent a letter ordering intelligence agencies to ignore Trump’s order to declassify numerous documents involving the Russia investigation until consulting with Congress.

The intelligence agencies serve at the pleasure of the president — and this clearly crosses the line separating the branches of government.

Obama Declassifies Portion of 1968 President’s Daily Brief
June 03, 2011

In a small but momentous shift in national security secrecy policy, President Obama personally ordered the declassification last month of a short paragraph regarding the Soviet space program that appeared in the President’s Daily Brief dated November 26, 1968.  The move came in response to a researcher’s request that had been blocked by the Central Intelligence Agency for more than a decade.

The President’s Daily Brief (PDB) is a compilation of intelligence that is presented to the President each day. It has long been considered sacrosanct by intelligence officials and has been effectively beyond the reach of Freedom of Information Act requesters and other researchers.

“The PDB is a unique intelligence product prepared specifically for the President of the United States to provide him with the most important current intelligence on critical issues relating to the national security of the United States,” a CIA official wrote (pdf) in 2006.

“In the PDB, the intelligence community assembles the most sensitive intelligence information and the best analytic judgments in a complete, accurate, and timely package intended to inform the President and his most senior advisors as they make and implement the nation’s defense and foreign policies…. The PDB is the most sensitive intelligence report produced by [the U.S. intelligence community].”

Dear Wolfgang,

I think that I pledged an allegiance to a “republic for which the flag stood” before classes starting at primary and secondary school? I know I recall the word “God” as well.

Damn all these professional hacks who are lifetime professional politicians that spit on our Constitution, even today. They may have killed us all. Maybe there is “no hope” for the future, since we have all destroyed our children by sending them to college for their official socialist induction. Worse we are proud of it as we drive our cars with the name of the Socialist University on the back window.

Jim

Jim/Bill,

Nobody cares until it hits home. By then, it will be too late.

Before reading on, you must understand the difference between a Democracy and a Republic.

Both are a representative form of government.

Both have majority rule as their foundation of belief.

The difference is that in a Republic, you have a Constitution to protect the minority.  In a Democracy, you don’t.

https://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-the-difference-between-a-republic-and-a-democracy.htm#didyouknowout

We Americans, as a nation, are thankfully a Republic.

Remember the Pledge of Allegiance?  “…and to the Republic, for which it stands”.  Never forget this distinction.

In a Democracy the ruling 51% can enslave the remaining 49%.  The minority’s individual rights are at the mercy of the ruling party.

Our rights appear innocuous, yet consider what one of our founding fathers said:

Thomas Jefferson. Smart man…The actual quote by Jefferson is “When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.”

And hoping to enlighten us of impending corporate domination of government, he said the following, not with foresight, but with first hand insight into the prevailing activism:

“I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our moneyed corporations, which dare already to challenge our government to a trial of strength and bid defiance to the laws of our country.” -Thomas Jefferson, 1812.

Sounds like the same travails we are having today. Doesn’t it?

Suspending The Constitution: In America Today, The Government Does Whatever It Wants
September 18, 2018

Authored by John Whitehead via The Rutherford Institute,

“That was when they suspended the Constitution. They said it would be temporary. There wasn’t even any rioting in the streets. People stayed home at night, watching television, looking for some direction. There wasn’t even an enemy you could put your finger on.”—Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid’s Tale

We can pretend that the Constitution, which was written to hold the government accountable, is still our governing document.

The reality we must come to terms with, however, is that in the America we live in today, the government does whatever it wants, freedom be damned.

“We the people” have been terrorized, traumatized, and tricked into a semi-permanent state of compliance by a government that cares nothing for our lives or our liberties.

The bogeyman’s names and faces may change over time (terrorism, the war on drugs, illegal immigration, etc.), but the end result remains the same: our unquestioning acquiescence to anything the government wants to do in exchange for the phantom promise of safety and security.

Thus, in the so-called named of national security, the Constitution has been steadily chipped away at, undermined, eroded, whittled down, and generally discarded to such an extent that what we are left with today is but a shadow of the robust document adopted more than two centuries ago.

Most of the damage, however, has been inflicted upon the Bill of Rights—the first ten amendments to the Constitution—which historically served as the bulwark from government abuse.

Russia Reveals The MH17 ‘Smoking Gun’
September 18, 2018

The Russian Defense Ministry may have finally unveiled the “smoking gun” able to solve the mystery surrounding Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17, shot down on July 17, 2014 over the Donetsk Oblast, a province in eastern Ukraine.

The MH17 crash killed 283 passengers from 10 different countries and 15 crew members. A Joint Investigation Team (JIT) from Malaysia, the Netherlands, Australia, Belgium and Ukraine – but not Russia – seemed to reach a controversial verdict: Moscow did it.

Well, not really, according to a detailed presentation by Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov and Lt. Gen. Nikolai Parshin, head of the Main Missile and Artillery Directorate.

The “breakthrough” seems to have come from a JIT briefing last May, which produced fragments of the engine and nozzle of the 9M38 missile, launched by a Buk missile system, which downed MH17.  According to Parshin: “Once we had the nozzle and engine numbers, we were able to find out the missile’s number.”

Deep State Unmasked: State Department on Hidden Cam, “Resist Everything,” “I Have Nothing to Lose”
September 18, 2018

(Washington DC)  Today, Project Veritas released the first installment in an undercover videoinvestigation series unmasking the deep state. This video features a State Department employee, Stuart Karaffa, engaged in radical socialist political activity on the taxpayer’s dime, while advocating for resistance to official government policies. In addition to being a State Department employee Stuart Karaffa is also a ranking member of the Metro DC Democratic Socialists of America (Metro DC DSA.)

Metro DC DSA is a socialist group that works to advance progressive causes in the metropolitan DC area.

Mr. Karaffa’s loyalties seem to be with DSA, not with his employer.

Karaffa told an undercover Project Veritas journalist that he performs DSA activism while at work for the State Department. He explained that he drafts DSA communications while on the job at State Department:

    “… I’m careful about it. I don’t leave a paper trail, like I leave emails, and like any press s**t that comes up I leave that until after 5:30. But as soon as 5:31 hits, got my like draft messages ready to send out.”

Karaffa also admits that on behalf of DSA he monitors Virginia political news online while at work:

    “You could put two and two together probably. With like web traffic…. So with web traffic, I mean I could make the case before a court of law that- I’m going to the Virginia sort of, campaign finance website- that I’m just interested in what people are doing politically. But if they also go and look at like DSA minutes and like Officer positions they’ll be like, ‘that’s weird, you were the co-chair of the electoral caucus, and you spent three hours on a Virginia campaign finance website.’”

Kavanaugh Accuser’s Lawyer is Vice Chair of Soros-Funded Organization Opposing Kavanaugh
September 18, 2018

Debra Katz, the attorney representing the woman who’s accusing Brett Kavanaugh of a high school era sexual assault, is the vice chair of the Project on Government Oversight — a group funded in large part by George Soros and his Open Society Foundation.

My, how the partisan links surrounding this accusation continue to grow.

First the revelation that Christine Blasey Ford signed a letter in opposition to President Donald Trump’s border policies, showing her political leanings as a far leftist.

Now this: Katz is a Democratic donor who is linked to Soros money.

Talk about a hit job.

Front Page Mag has more:

    Kavanaugh’s accuser is being represented by Debra Katz, a Washington D.C. lawyer and the vice chair of the board of the Project On Government Oversight.

    POGO co-signed a letter to Senator Dianne Feinstein and Senator Grassley along with a variety of lefty groups demanding Kavanaugh records. This was the obstruction tactic of choice of the left for trying to secure the Court seat before they fastened on to this latest smear.

What Keeps Them Up At Night
September 16, 2018

. . .

The worry that got my attention was echoed by the second billionaire. When two billionaires with their own money invested in their own funds have the same major concern, it is time to take note. These guys are active investors. They attempt to add alpha through investment selection. Their biggest worry is the epic shift of investment flows from active management to passive management.

Having over 40% of all the money in the market being managed by computers gives a huge boost to returns during a bull market. But when the selling starts, computers don’t think. Their algorithms will automatically sell and flash crashes will abound. Once fear replaces greed, the wave of computer selling will overwhelm those trying to actively manage their portfolios. Then the record level of margin debt will result in margin calls and a further wave of selling. The clueless 401k investor will see their retirement savings sliced by 40% in the blink of an eye.

It’s not a matter of if, but when the tsunami of selling will make the 2008 crisis look like a walk in the park. There are numerous other potential triggers which could cause or exacerbate the next financial crisis. Excess leverage always creates catastrophe. When you have $8 trillion of emerging market debt, a rising dollar, rising interest rates, and record low risk premiums, the fuse on the fireworks has already been lit.

Does the US Military “Own the Weather”? “Weaponizing the Weather” As An Instrument of Modern Warfare?
September 15, 2018

First published in September 2017.

Environmental modification techniques have been available to the US military for more than half a century.

The issue has been amply documented and should be part of the climate change debate.

Note: There is no evidence of “weather modification” in relation to recent climatic disturbances (hurricanes), but at the same time there is no firm evidence that this climate instability is solely attributable to greenhouse gas emissions.

The broader issue of environmental modification techniques must be addressed and carefully analyzed. It should also be understood that the instruments of weather warfare are part of the US arsenal of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and their proposed use by the US military against “enemies” constitutes not only a crime against humanity but to put it mildly a threat to planet earth.

In this essay I am providing the reader with direct quotes from a US Air Force document on the use of environmental modification techniques which indelibly provide irrefutable evidence that the threats are real and must be addressed.

It should be noted that the US is blatantly in violation of  a historic 1977 international Convention ratified by the UN General Assembly which banned “military or other hostile use of environmental modification techniques having widespread, long-lasting or severe effects.” (AP, 18 May 1977). Both the US and the Soviet Union were signatories to the Convention.

Lisa Page Bombshell Testimony: Collusion Between Trump And Russia Unproven By Time Of Mueller’s Special Counsel Appointment
September 16, 2018

Former FBI attorney Lisa Page, in a bombshell revelation, says the agency could not prove collusion between Russia and Donald Trump’s presidential campaign before Special Counsel Robert Mueller was appointed.

Page told a closed-door joint session of the House Judiciary and Oversight committees in mid-July that investigators could not make the charge, according to a transcript of her deposition reviewed by Fox News.

‘I think this represents that even as far as May 2017, we still couldn’t answer the question,’ Page said.

Something is up. Something big is coming. We cannot be sure precisely when or what, but there are warnings from the technical indicators and patterns from the market this weekend that tell us the stock market is in an extremely dangerous place. Caution is warranted. We look for the Plunge Protection Team to be active at this time. Whether they succeed or not is to be determined.

Stocks were flat Friday, September 14th. The stock market generated its 11th Hindenburg Omen observation Friday for the official H.O. from August, and has now triggered 9 H.O. observations in nine consecutive days! This has not happened in the past 40 years we have tracked Hindenburg Omens. This tells us the market is in an extreme unhealthy condition, is fragile, and could plunge given a trigger event.

This does not mean a plunge is coming for certain, however every stock market crash (declines greater than 15 percent) over the past 40 years have been preceded by a Hindenburg Omen. There are large and growing Bearish divergences evident this weekend between the major U.S. stock averages and their 10 day average Advance/Decline Line Indicators, their Demand Power measures, and there is a Bearish divergence between the S&P 500 and our intermediate term Secondary Trend Indicator. Rising Bearish Wedge patterns are completing in the major averages. Downside price targets suggest a plunge will follow. We show charts for all of these patterns in this weekend’s market forecast report to subscribers at Dr. McHugh’s  www.technicalindicatorindex.com.

Days After 9/11 Tulsi Gabbard Slams “Betrayal Of American People” Over Syria
September 14, 2018

In a rare and unprecedented speech delivered on the House floor just two days after the nation memorialized 9/11, Democratic Hawaiian Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard on Thursday slammed Washington’s longtime support to anti-Assad jihadists in Syria, while also sounding the alarm over the current build-up of tensions between the US and Russia over the Syria crisis.

She called on Congress to condemn what she called the Trump Administration’s protection of al-Qaeda in Idlib and slammed Washington’s policies in Syria as “a betrayal of the American people” — especially the victims and families that perished on 9/11.

Considering that Congresswoman Gabbard herself is an Iraq war veteran and current Army reserve officer who served in the aftermath of 9/11, it’s all the more power and rare that a sitting Congress member would make such forceful comments exposing the hypocrisy and contradictions of US policy.

Trump Calls Election National Emergency, FBI Leak Strategy, Economic Warning
September 14, 2018

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (WNW 352 9.14.18)

President Trump is out with a new executive order (EO) to stop and punish foreign interference in U.S. elections. Donald Trump is getting ready for the all-important midterm elections in November and wants to make sure there is no cheating. In this new EO, he “declares a national emergency to deal with this threat.” Is this Deep State actors, illegal aliens, foreign spies and anyone working to undermine U.S. elections? It’s all of the above and much more.

Another round of texts from former top FBI officials confirming the investigation into President Trump’s so-called Russian collusion is a total hoax and a frame job by the top people in the FBI and DOJ. In this round of revelations, we find out that the FBI had a “media leak strategy” that involved many at the New York Times and the Washington Post, among others. The propaganda media helped the FBI and DOJ spread totally false stories and reveal classified information to smear Donald Trump and his Administration. The “news organizations” involved in this may have criminal liability, but they absolutely have civil liabilities from the people they wrote false stories on and trashed and made them appear to be traitors when, in fact, it was all a lie to get Donald Trump removed from office. Let the lawsuits begin.

The Federal Reserve is warning that during the next recession or market meltdown, it won’t be able to do much to bring it back. Why are there so many economic warnings going out by important people in the financial community when we are being told everything is great?

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.

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.

YouTube Bans Media Supporting Syria’s Liberating Struggle
September 11, 2018

by Stephen Lendman

Alphabet/Google-owned YouTube is a censoring machine like its parent company – waging war on speech and media freedom, in cahoots with dark US forces waging war on humanity.

Google transformed itself from a search engine to gatekeeper/censor, eliminating what it calls extremist content, its YouTube subsidiary operating the same way – wanting information conflicting with the official narrative eliminated, the hallmark of totalitarian rule.

The Internet is the last frontier of digital democracy, the only reliable independent space for real news, information and analysis – threatened by social media, Google, YouTube, ISPs and tech giants in cahoots with Washington.

Ahead of what may be the mother of all battles to liberate US-supported terrorists in Syria’s Idlib province, YouTube banned Damascus state-run and other pro-government channels – including the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA), channels belonging to the country’s presidency and Defense Ministry, each closure accompanied by one of these shameful statements saying:

“This account has been terminated due to a legal complaint,” or

“This account has been terminated for a violation of YouTube’s Terms of Service.”

Jim and Bill, we talked to Bix and Cliff late October of 2017 regarding crypto currency. We warned they were not worth investing in. At that time Ethereum was around 300 dollars per coin. It ran up to 1,359 dollars per coin and is now at 181 dollars. The price of JSMINESET would have saved a fortune!

Kerry Meeting With Iran to Salvage Nuke Deal With Rogue Diplomacy
September 12, 2018

Former Secretary of State John Kerry disclosed that he has been conducting rogue diplomacy with top Iranian officials to salvage the landmark nuclear deal and push the Islamic Republic to negotiate its contested missile program, according to recent remarks.

Kerry, in an interview with radio host Hugh Hewitt to promote his new book, said that he has met with Iranian Former Minister Javad Zarif—the former secretary’s onetime negotiating partner—three or four times in recent months behind the Trump administration’s back.

“I think I’ve seen him three or four times,” Kerry said, adding that he has been conducting sensitive diplomacy without the current administration’s authorization. Kerry said he has criticized the current administration in these discussions, chiding it for not pursuing negotiations from Iran, despite the country’s fevered rhetoric about the U.S. president.

Kerry’s comments are in line with previous reporting on his behind-the-scenes attempts to save the nuclear deal and ensure that Iran continues receiving billions in cash windfalls. These payments were brought to a halt by the Trump administration when it abandoned the nuclear agreement and reimposed harsh sanctions on Iran that have nearly toppled its economy and sparked a popular revolution.

Welcome to the new Petro Yuan (Renminbi RMB), replacing the Petro Dollar of old.

This has massive implications regarding the direction of the US Dollar, and especially US debt encumbrance,  in the near future.

This is not only about China, Russia, Turkey, and Pakistan, but with the Euro coming on board we’ll see the pace of change in global economic dominance increasing exponentially.

We now think countries selling oil in these contracts and getting paid in RMB are starting to recycle that profit back into Chinese government bonds. This is going to continue for decades.”

And, from Euro President:

“It is absurd that Europe pays for 80% of its energy import bill ~300B euro a year – in USD when only roughly 2% of our energy imports from US. It is absurd that European companies buy European planes in dollars instead of euro,” EC President JC Juncker, State of Union Address.

Trump administration released their annual report to Congress on White House Office Personnel.
July 29, 2018

On Friday, the Trump administration released their annual report to Congress on White House Office Personnel. It includes the name, status, salary and position title of all 377 White House employees. The report also said that Trump decided not to take a dime of his salary, instead he donated it to an special cause. (see below).

The report also showed that President Trump is far better at saving money than Obama was.   The total White House salaries under Trump are $35.8 million vs $40.9 under Obama, saving $5.1 million.

Here are some other key findings.

There  are 110 fewer employees on White House staff under Trump than under Obama at this point in their respective presidencies.

Nineteen fewer staffers are dedicated to The First Lady of the United States (FLOTUS).

  Currently, there are 5 staffers dedicated to Melania Trump

  1. 24 staffers who served Michelle Obama (FY2009).

Intel Veterans Urge President Trump To Step Back From The Brink On Syria
September 11, 2018

Via ConsortiumNews.com,

In a memo to President Trump, a group of former U.S. intelligence officers, including NSA specialists, warn that the potential for a U.S.-Russia confrontation has never been greater at a moment the White House has confirmed it’s in the planning stages of a strike on Syria, claiming “new intelligence” that Assad has already “ordered” a chemical weapons attack, according to the WSJ.

MEMORANDUM FOR: The President

FROM: Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS)

SUBJECT: Moscow Has Upped the Ante in Syria

Mr. President:

We are concerned that you may not have been adequately briefed on the upsurge of hostilities in northwestern Syria, where Syrian armed forces with Russian support have launched a full-out campaign to take back the al-Nusra/al-Qaeda/ISIS-infested province of Idlib.  The Syrians will almost certainly succeed, as they did in late 2016 in Aleppo.  As in Aleppo, it will mean unspeakable carnage, unless someone finally tells the insurgents theirs is a lost cause.

That someone is you. The Israelis, Saudis, and others who want unrest to endure are egging on the insurgents, assuring them that you, Mr. President, will use US forces to protect the insurgents in Idlib, and perhaps also rain hell down on Damascus. We believe that your senior advisers are encouraging the insurgents to think in those terms, and that your most senior aides are taking credit for your recent policy shift from troop withdrawal from Syria to indefinite war.

Staged Filming of False Flag ‘Chemical Attacks’ Has Begun in Idlib: Russian MoD
September 11, 2018

Russian state media channels, in a near simultaneous blitz of information, have issued breaking alerts this morning that anti-Assad insurgents in Idlib have begun filming “fake footage of chemical attacks” based on Russian Ministry of Defense (MoD) statements. The Russian Center for Syrian Reconciliation says the “fake footage of chemical attacks” is expected to be delivered to various TV channels and Western journalists before the end of the day Tuesday.

Russia’s Sputnik News indicates based on official Moscow sources:

According to the information received from inhabitants of Idlib province, militants are now filming a staged provocation in the city of Jisr al-Shugur, where “chemical weapons” are depicted as being used by the Syrian army against civilians. The film crews of several Middle Eastern TV channels arrived in Jisr al-Shugur in the morning, as well as the regional affiliate of one of the main American television news networks”, the Reconciliation Center said.

Idlib residents have begun donning ‘protective gear’ according to an Al-Jazeera report. Image source: Reuters

Jisr al-Shugur is a key al-Qaeda held town in Idlib Province, specifically under the control of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Nusrah Front, or al-Qaeda). There have been international journalists inside Jisr al-Shugur over the past weeks.

Official Russian military sources also say two containers of a chlorine-based toxic substance have been brought to Jisr al-Shugur; however, the sources did not cite any specific intelligence or provide evidence to back the claim.

How To Explain The Cause Of The Syrian War In 2 Minutes
September 11, 2018

The last time time President Trump launched massive strikes on Syria in April of 2018, Jeffrey Sachs went on MSNBC’s Morning Joe just two days before the attack to give the American public a perspective they had never heard aired on a major cable network.

Importantly, Sachs is not some random unknown blogger or obscure editorial writer, but a renowned Columbia University professor and career Harvard academic who has won numerous awards and serves as special economic adviser to the U.N.

During the panel Sachs appeared to shock his hosts with erudite analysis of how the seven-year long war in Syria has fundamentally been fueled by covert regime change from the West and its Gulf allies — a rare if not unheard of subject for the show.

In mere two minutes Sachs cut through the soundbites even as — just like now — the Trump administration was advancing completely unverified claims of an Assad chemical attack on civilians in order to prep the public for military intervention.

Sachs told the MSNBC panel:

 We know they sent in the CIA to overthrow Assad. The CIA and Saudi Arabia together in covert operations tried to overthrow Assad. It was a disaster.

 Eventually it brought in both ISIS as a splinter group to the jihadists that went in, it also brought in Russia.

 So we have been digging deeper and deeper and deeper. What we should do now is get out, and not continue to throw missiles, not have a confrontation with Russia…
