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.

OUCH! CNN Ratings Down 41% from Last Year
September 15, 2018

CNN’s woes continue in the ratings department. CNN plummeted a fell to 41% last week during the daytime TV ratings, and fell 36% in Prime time compared to the same period and week last year.

CNN which ranked #6 across basic cable viewers in total prime time viewers, and #5 in total day this past week. Even with the top 10 finishes, the network was -36% in prime time viewers and -41% in daytime viewers vs the same week last year.

CNN is currently ranked behind ESPN and Nickelodeon. Fox News, MSNBC, HGTV, and The USA Network all defeated CNN in ratings.

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.

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.”

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.

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.”

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…

Federal Grand Jury Petition Filed For New 9/11 Investigation
August 23, 2018

Good news has finally come along for the many people who know office fires cannot bring down modern steel framed skyscrapers, and it’s good news for the rest of the world as well. On April 10th of this year, the non-profit Lawyers Committee for 9-11 Inquiry filed a petition with the U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of New York, Manhattan, formally requesting that he present to a grand jury, as a U.S. Attorney, extensive evidence of federal crimes relating to the destruction of three World Trade Center high-rises on 9/11/2001. The petition cites broad and conclusive evidence, providing proof of explosives and incendiaries employed at ground zero to bring down the twin towers and WTC Building 7.(1)

Incredibly, America’s government waged war around the world to retaliate for 9-11, but never thoroughly investigated the collapse of these three WTC skyscrapers. This petition with the Department of Justice, for the first time, brings forward into a court of law the cavalcade of credible evidence disproving the official story which blames fire alone for the collapse of these buildings. The 52 page petition, with 57 exhibits, also points out that this crime of bombing a public building was not committed by a single person acting alone, and asks the jurors to inquire into the crimes of aiding and abetting and conspiracy.

The First Amended Petition

On 30 July 2018, an amended petition, The First Amended Petition, was delivered to U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman in Manhattan, NY. This First Amended Petition references all of the same evidence presented in their original petition, but also has added three additional federal crimes that the Lawyers Committee allege the submitted evidence shows were committed related to the tragic events of 9/11.

Indeed, it has.

Out of its hatred of Trump the left has united with the forces of evil and war that are leading to conflict with Russia. The left’s hatred of Trump shows that the American left has totally seperated from the interests of the working class, which elected Trump. The American left has abandoned the working class for the group victimizations and hatreds of Identity Politics. As Hillary put it, the working class comprises the “Trump deplorables.” The Democratic Party, like the Republicans, represents the ruling oligarchy.

I have explained that the leftwing lost its bearings when the Soviet Union collapsed and socialism gave way to neoliberal privatizations. The moral fury of the leftwing movement had to go somewhere, and it found its home in Identity Politics in which the white heterosexual male takes the place of the capitalist, and his victim groups—blacks, women, homosexuals, illegal immigrants—take the place of the working class.

The consequences of the leftwing’s alliance with warmongers and liars is the leftwing’s loss of veracity. The left has endorsed a CIA orchestration—“Russiagate”—for which there is no known evidence, but which the left supports as proven truth.

Nearly 10K People Have Gotten Cancer From Toxic 9/11 Dust
August 11, 2018

By Susan Edelman

The city is approaching a terrible milestone — nearly 10,000 people have suffered cancers linked to the toxic dust and smoke at Ground Zero, The Post has learned.

With the 17th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks a month away, the federal World Trade Center Health Program has counted 9,795 first responders, downtown workers, residents, students and others with cancer deemed 9/11-related.

In all, more than 1,700 responders and others affected have died, including 420 of those stricken with cancer, officials said.

“9/11 is still killing,” said John Feal, an advocate for WTC responders. “Sadly, this fragile community of heroes and survivors is shrinking by the day.”

The number of cancer patients has rapidly risen since the federal program started tracking the disease in 2013.

“We get these referrals 15 to 20 times a week,” said Dr. Michael Crane, medical director of the WTC Health Program at Mount Sinai Hospital.

The increase is not surprising. Cancers have various latency periods, typically emerging years after exposure to harmful substances.

The ‘Never Forget’ mantra of September 11
September 9, 2018

“Never forget.”

This is the mantra. The mantra that is repeated in the wake of every major false flag, every psychologically traumatizing incident that the deep state wishes to become a rallying cry for their next agenda item.

And so it is completely unsurprising that this mantra has been invoked to remind the public of that foundational event of the age of terror, 9/11.

“Never forget,” we are told by the mockingbirds of the establishment press every year come September. And when I say “every year” I mean every / single / year / without / fail. (Well, sometimes it’s a fail, but you get what I mean).

But never forget what? That is the question.

Never forget that false flag terrorism has been used time and time again throughout history to whip up war hysteria among the public? Never forget that the Afghan war and the war of terror in general was based on the lie of 9/11? Never forget that the official government conspiracy theory of 9/11, the 9/11 Commission Report, is a tissue of lies and omissions based on torture testimony that would be inadmissible in any court and is self-contradictory to boot? Never forget that official government cover-ups into the events have relied on outright lies, confiscation and memory holing of key evidence that proves that 9/11 was not the work of the magical cave-dwelling dialysis patient and his band of box-cutter-wielding henchmen?

No, of course not. “Never forget” the officially sanctioned, government-approved lessons of 9/11, silly! That’s what “never forget” means.

Never forget that it was those scary dirty bearded Muslim boogeymen who did 9/11, and it was definitely the Muslims who were cheering the destruction of the Towers, not the Israeli Mossad agents who were there to “document the event.”

Argentines Seek Soup Kitchens, Barter Markets Amid Crisis
September 9, 2018

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina –  Men wait outside the metal-grill door of a soup kitchen in a slum, hoping to get a small serving of beef and mashed potatoes. At a barter market on the capital’s outskirts, a woman tries to persuade another to exchange for her granddaughters’ tiny shoes.

Argentines are struggling in crisis in what was once one of the world’s most prosperous nations. Consumer prices are soaring, unemployment is high and the Argentine peso has plunged, bringing back haunting memories of the country’s economic meltdown in 2001 that pushed millions into poverty.

A growing number of people arrive at the “Happy Kids” soup kitchen in the Villa 1-11-14 shantytown, where servers try to stretch out steaming pots of stew because many more than expected are lining up for food.

“The city government gives us money for 440 rations a day, but we’re being forced to prepare smaller portions so that we can cover 600 rations,” said Cintia Garcia, who runs the soup kitchen.

A series of events battered the economy.

Thank Q? New York Times’ Anon Anti-Trump Tirade Points to Deep State Desperation
September 10, 2018

On September 5th, and by its own account, The New York Times took “the rare step” of publishing an anonymous Op-ed piece. But this was not your ordinary unsigned work of art. The author was said to be a top official in the Trump administration – with a serious ax to grind against the US leader.

In the very opening line of the explosive easy, entitled “I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration,” the writer drops a veritable bomb by alleging: “I work for the president but like-minded colleagues and I have vowed to thwart parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations.”

A bit later, he – assuming the closeted author identifies as male – says “many of the senior officials in [Trump’s] own administration are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations.”

And as if to preempt the predictable claim that the piece was drafted by a shady member of the ‘deep state,’ the writer had that base covered: “This isn’t the work of the so-called deep state. It’s the work of the steady state.”

Well, that’s certainly ironic. This dauntless freedom fighter expects us to believe he is part of the same “steady state” that drafts diatribes against the US Commander-in-Chief. You know, because the good old ‘steady state’ doesn’t want to rock the boat or anything crazy like that.

Contagion is on its way in the currency market. Powell of the US Fed is fanning a fire with no tool to put out. It is possible he does not even know, but this locomotive of Yama all sits on a firm dollar, at the most inappropriate time. It is the Synthetic Dollar Short coming home to destroy all in its path. When is NOW!

Momentum Structural Analysis
August 22, 2018

Brazilian Real (forex)

0.34 0.32 0.30 0.28 0.26 0.24 0.22

.2447 last

This is a focal point in the emerging market arena. And the clock is now ticking against the bears.

We’ve also looked at quarterly momentum (longer-term than this 3-mo. avg. momentum chart), but both render essentially the same levels overhead that would indicate a possible turn. First, some features.

Monthly momentum’s upper standard deviation band dropped below the zero line (oversold status) three months ago and a stall set in. Except for the recent price probe below the .25 level, the action was confined in a range for over ten weeks (.25 to .27). That was the initial effect of the brakes being applied. During that stall, momentum readings ran up to the multi-point downtrend and marked the line again.

Now, with the marginal new price chart lows below .25, momentum is not confirming the action. Barring some total implosion, this drop to new price lows looks as if it will generate a non-confirmed monthly momentum situation.

9/11 Truth: The Mysterious Collapse Of WTC Seven
September 05, 2018

[originally published by Global Research in September 2009]

At 5:21 in the afternoon of 9/11, almost seven hours after the Twin Towers had come down, Building 7 of the World Trade Center also came down. The collapse of this building was from the beginning considered a mystery. [1]

The same should have been true, to be sure, of the collapse of the Twin Towers. But they had been hit by planes, which had ignited big fires in them, and many people assumed this combination of causes to be sufficient to explain why they came down.

But WTC 7 had not been hit by a plane, so it was apparently the first steel-framed high-rise building in the known universe to have collapsed because of fire alone. New York Times writer James Glanz quoted a structural engineer as saying: “[W]ithin the structural engineering community, [WTC 7] is considered to be much more important to understand [than the Twin Towers],” because engineers had no answer to the question, “why did 7 come down?” [2]

From a purely scientific perspective, of course, there would have been an obvious answer. Scientists, presupposing the regularity of nature, operate on the principle that like effects generally imply like causes. Scientists are, therefore, loathe to posit unprecedented causes for common phenomena. By 9/11, the collapse of steel-framed high-rises had become a rather common phenomenon, which most Americans had seen on television. And in every one of these cases, the building had been brought down by explosives in the process known as controlled demolition. From a scientific perspective, therefore, the obvious assumption would have been that WTC 7 came down because explosives had been used to remove its steel supports.

Ethereum Plummets After Co-Founder Buterin Says Days Of Explosive Growth Are Over
September 8, 2018

The pain for ethereum fans has been relentless in 2018, with the cryptocurrency sliding more than 80% from its January highs.

Then, moments ago even more pain was unleashed by an unlikely source after Vitalik Buterin, Ethereum’s 24 year old co-founder, said that “the days of explosive growth in the blockchain industry have likely come and gone now the average person is aware of its existence.”

In an interview with Bloomberg at an Ethereum and blockchain conference in Hong Kong, Buterin said that “the blockchain space is getting to the point where there’s a ceiling in sight. If you talk to the average educated person at this point, they probably have heard of blockchain at least once.” What this means is that “there isn’t an opportunity for yet another 1,000-times growth in anything in the space anymore.”

Commenting on the first six or seven years of growth of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, Buterin said that it was dependent on marketing and trying to get wider adoption, but “that strategy is getting close to hitting a dead end.”

Instead, the co-founder of the second most valuable cryptocurrency said that the next growth phase will be getting people who are already interested in cryptocurrencies to be involved in a more in-depth way: “Go from just people being interested to real applications of real economic activity”, a point he has made regularly in the past even as he frequently slammed the stratospheric growth observed in cryptocurrencies in 2017, if not so much 2018.

What Happened On The Planes On September 11, 2001? The 9/11 Cell Phone Calls. The 9/11 Commission “Script” Was Fabricated
September 04, 2018

Note to readers: please click the share buttons above

This article was first published on August 10, 2004 under the title More Holes in the Official Story: The 9/11 Cell Phone Calls, it was published  (Chapter XVIII) in my book entitled “America’s War on Terrorism”, Global Research, Montreal, 2005. Some of the hyperlinks (2001-2004 references) pertaining to some of the quotations are unfortunately no longer active.

“We Have Some Planes”

The  9/11 Commission’s Report provides an almost visual description of the Arab hijackers. It depicts in minute detail events occurring inside the cabin of the four hijacked planes.

In the absence of surviving passengers, this “corroborating evidence”, was based on passengers’ cell and air phone conversations with their loved ones. According to the Report, the cockpit voice recorder (CVR) was only recovered in the case of one of the flights (UAL 93).

Focusing on the personal drama of the passengers, the Commission has built much of its narrative around the phone conversations. The Arabs are portrayed with their knives and box cutters, scheming in the name of Allah, to bring down the planes and turn them “into large guided missiles” (Report, Chapter 1).

The Technology of Wireless Transmission

The Report conveys the impression that cell phone ground-to-air communication from high altitude was of reasonably good quality, and that there was no major impediment or obstruction in wireless transmission.

Some of the conversations were with onboard air phones, which contrary to the cell phones provide for good quality transmission. The report does not draw a clear demarcation between the two types of calls.

The Super Rich of Silicon Valley Have a Doomsday Escape Plan
September 5 2018

Years of doomsday talk at Silicon Valley dinner parties has turned to action.

In recent months, two 150-ton survival bunkers journeyed by land and sea from a Texas warehouse to the shores of New Zealand, where they’re buried 11 feet underground.

Seven Silicon Valley entrepreneurs have purchased bunkers from Rising S Co. and planted them in New Zealand in the past two years, said Gary Lynch, the manufacturer’s general manager. At the first sign of an apocalypse — nuclear war, a killer germ, a French Revolution-style uprising targeting the 1 percent — the Californians plan to hop on a private jet and hunker down, he said.

“New Zealand is an enemy of no one,” Lynch said in an interview from his office in Murchison, Texas, southeast of Dallas. “It’s not a nuclear target. It’s not a target for war. It’s a place where people seek refuge.”

The remote island nation, clinging to the southern part of the globe 2,500 miles off Australia’s coast, has 4.8 million people and six times as many sheep. It has a reputation for natural beauty, easy networking, low-key politicians who bike to work, and rental prices half those of the San Francisco Bay Area. That makes it an increasingly popular destination not only for those fretting about impending dystopia, but for tech entrepreneurs seeking incubators for nurturing startups.
