The Real Reason Behind Democrats Impeachment Of Trump
September 29, 2019

The general debate of the General Assembly opened on Tuesday, 24 September at 9:00 a.m. (New York time). This year’s theme was “Galvanizing multilateral efforts for poverty eradication, quality education, climate action and inclusion”.

The internal properties of the C.I.A. newly revised “Disclosure of Urgent Concern” form, which the intelligence community inspector general (ICIG) requires to be submitted under the Intelligence Community Whistleblower Protection Act (ICWPA), show that the document was uploaded on September 24, 2019, at 4:25 p.m.

Thus, at some point on September 24th the C.I.A. decided to move forward with the Operation Impeachment, and uploaded an amended “Disclosure of urgent Concern” form to cover their asses with a fig leaf. They did this in response to something that was said during the day of September 24th at the UNGA and to what was about to be said the following sessions. The C.I.A. decided that Nancy Pelosi’s full statement on launching Trump impeachment inquiry will be sufficient enough scandal to detract the Media and the public from statements being made by the leaders and representatives of many nations. Pelosi announced a formal impeachment inquiry on September 24th at noon. So, the C.I.A. posting a revised “Disclosure of Urgent Concern” form four hours later was an afterthought. See the complete story here.

It shows that they had Trump phone conversation with the Kievan mamzer set aside to use when there is a need to create a side-show, but they weren’t completely ready for the UN General Assembly because they didn’t know about the diplomatic demarche and learned about it at the last moment.

Global Warming And The Ozone Layer: What’s More Dangerous, CO2 Or Nuclear War?
September 29, 2019

. . .

Global Warming. The Concepts

While climate activists express their concern regarding the nefarious impacts of global capitalism on climate, including those pertaining to militarization (and defense spending), the scientific analysis of climate under the auspices of the IPCC  largely focusses on a single variable: Carbon Dioxide (CO2), i.e. the impact of increased emissions of CO2 derived from fossil fuels (including fracking) on average global temperature.

Depletion of the ozone layer is what triggers global warming. The ozone layer is in the Earth’s stratosphere. “Ozone is constantly being produced and destroyed naturally. This ozone layer filters out ultra-violet (UV) rays from the Sun and protects life on Earth.”

Greenhouse gas emissions affecting the ozone layer largely consist of water vapor (50%), carbon dioxide (CO2) (20%) and clouds (25%).  The remaining greenhouse gases (5%) is made up of small aerosol particles, methane (CH4) and nitrous oxides (N2O) (both a greenhouse gas as well as an “ozone destroyer” with devastating impacts on climate). (approximate figures provided by NASA for 2011).

Decrease of the ozone layer “will increase the amount of Ultra Violet radiation reaching the Earth’s surface, and worsen the impacts due to UV exposure.”

1,015,736,491,184 reasons to have a Plan B
October 1, 2019

Precisely one year ago today, the US federal government opened Fiscal Year 2019 with a total debt level of $21.6 trillion:

Specifically, the US federal debt on October 1st last year was $21,606,948,183,180.23

Today is the start of the government’s 2020 Fiscal Year. And the total debt is now $22,622,684,674,364.43

That means they accumulated more than $1 TRILLION in new debt over the course of the 2019 Fiscal Year.

Here’s some food for thought…..

The headline below is somewhat misleading.

As Dollar Reaches Record High, Trump Slams “Clueless, Pathetic” Fed
October 1, 2019

On the heels of dismal manufacturing data, and soaring dollar strength vs global fiat currencies, President Trump has lashed out at who he feels is responsible…

“As I predicted, Jay Powell and the Federal Reserve have allowed the Dollar to get so strong, especially relative to ALL other currencies, that our manufacturers are being negatively affected. Fed Rate too high. They are their own worst enemies, they don’t have a clue. Pathetic!”

Indeed, with the broad dollar index at an all-time record high…

CREsh Begins: London Property Market Hit As WeWork Deal Falls Through
September 27, 2019

In an ominous sign for the commercial real-estate market, a large Singaporean investment firm has walked away from an £850 million ($1.04 billion) deal to buy Southbank Place, an office building near London’s Waterloo Station that boasts one of the largest WeWork spaces in the world, the FT reports.

The deal collapsed shortly after WeWork called off its IPO, and is now scrambling to sell off businesses and assets like its corporate jet to raise capital. Since the offering was abandoned, not only is the company missing out on $3 billion that it was set to raise in the public markets, but it’s also losing out on a $6 billion loan that was contingent on the IPO.

Notably, this isn’t the only deal for a WeWork-occupied London office building that has fallen through recently.

Sources close to the deal blamed local factors like Brexit-related uncertainty and the expense of pulling out of a refinancing deal between the seller and an asset management firm that refinanced the development earlier this year. Supposedly, the seller, a firm with ties to Italy’s Agnelli family, backed out of the deal, despite having put the building on the market.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weather_modification_in_North_America

http://www.nawmc.org/

Questions & Answers
For what purposes is weather modification practiced?

Weather modification, commonly referred to as cloud seeding, is currently used to increase precipitation from clouds, reduce hail from thunderstorms, and eliminate fogs that reduce visibility, usually at busy airports.

How does cloud seeding work?

Cloud seeding improves a cloud’s ability to produce precipitation by adding tiny particles called ice nuclei (which water needs to freeze) to a cloud. These nuclei help the cloud produce precipitation by acting on supercooled liquid water (SLW), the raw material from which precipitation is formed. These artificial ice nuclei promote freezing of SLW at warmer temperatures than it would naturally, accelerating the precipitation process and making more efficient use of the water in the cloud.

 

Jim,

This was discussed on Saturday. Does anyone see a pattern?

Greta Thunberg and Big-Biz’ Climate Charade
September 27, 2019

. . .

Greta Thunberg’s story isn’t one of inspiration and activism – it is one of child exploitation, one of manipulating public perception, and one of re-entrenched special interests desperately seeking an audience – any audience – still gullible enough to believe in and help reconstruct the facades used to cover up their otherwise transparent and self-serving agenda.

The environment needs to be saved, but not by big-business’ “Fridays for Future” charade.

The Nayirah testimony was a false testimony given before the Congressional Human Rights Caucus on October 10, 1990 by a 15-year-old girl who provided only her first name, Nayirah. The testimony was widely publicized, and was cited numerous times by United States senators and President George H. W. Bush in their rationale to back Kuwait in the Gulf War. In 1992, it was revealed that Nayirah’s last name was al-Ṣabaḥ (Arabic: نيرة الصباح‎) and that she was the daughter of Saud Al-Sabah, the Kuwaiti ambassador to the United States. Furthermore, it was revealed that her testimony was organized as part of the Citizens for a Free Kuwait public relations campaign, which was run by the American public relations firm Hill & Knowlton for the Kuwaiti government. Following this, al-Sabah’s testimony has come to be regarded as a classic example of modern atrocity propaganda.[1][2]

“Make India Great Again:” Lockheed Martin Offshores F-16 Production From US To India
September 26, 2019

A breaking report from Reuters indicates that Lockheed Martin is offshoring part of its F-16 combat jet production from the US to India. This completely goes against President Trump’s ‘America First’ policy.

It’s unclear how much of the F-16 production plant in Greenville, South Carolina, will be transferred to India, nevertheless, how many jobs will be lost, in Lockheed Martin’s apparent betrayal of “Making America Great Again.”

JPMorgan Chase Has Billions In CRE Loans Riding On WeWork Surviving
September 23, 2019

WeWork’s business model isn’t workable. Everybody understands that except the Wall Street bank that has the most to lose if WeWork’s initial public offering (IPO) of its stock doesn’t move forward. That bank is JPMorgan Chase, one of the two main underwriters of the IPO, along with Goldman Sachs.

WeWork’s business model is to take long-term leases in commercial office buildings and then sub-lease that space under short leases to small businesses, start-ups and freelancers – none of which are particularly known for their ability to pay rent in a downturn. WeWork is currently on the hook for more than $47 billion in long term leases while it has yet to figure out how to make a dime of profits.

JPMorgan Chase is so interconnected with WeWork that to a number of minds WeWork looks like little more than a strawman for the bank and the bank’s biggest commercial real estate clients in New York City where WeWork is taking vacant space off the market at seismic speed. WeWork is now the largest office tenant in New York City.

The interconnections between WeWork and JPMorgan Chase include the following: JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., a federally insured bank, “has made loans and extended credit to Adam Neumann totaling $97.5 million across a variety of lending products, including mortgages secured by personal property and unsecured credit lines and letters of credit,” according to the prospectus filed with the SEC for the recently aborted IPO.

Martial Law Masquerading As Law And Order: The Police State’s Language Of Force
September 19, 2019

Authored by John Whitehead via The Rutherford Institute,

“Since when have we Americans been expected to bow submissively to authority and speak with awe and reverence to those who represent us? The constitutional theory is that we the people are the sovereigns, the state and federal officials only our agents. We who have the final word can speak softly or angrily. We can seek to challenge and annoy, as we need not stay docile and quiet.”

– Justice William O. Douglas, dissenting, Colten v. Kentucky, 407 U.S. 104 (1972)

Forget everything you’ve ever been taught about free speech in America.

It’s all a lie.

There can be no free speech for the citizenry when the government speaks in a language of force.

What is this language of force?

Militarized police. Riot squads. Camouflage gear. Black uniforms. Armored vehicles. Mass arrests. Pepper spray. Tear gas. Batons. Strip searches. Surveillance cameras. Kevlar vests. Drones. Lethal weapons. Less-than-lethal weapons unleashed with deadly force. Rubber bullets. Water cannons. Stun grenades. Arrests of journalists. Crowd control tactics. Intimidation tactics. Brutality.

This is not the language of freedom.

Colt Announces End Of AR-15 Production For Civilian Market
September 19, 2019

The Associated Press reports that famous American gun maker Colt is suspending production of the popular AR-15 and possibly other assault style rifles for the civilian market.

The monumental announcement Thursday could likely ripple across the industry after a summer of multiple tragic mass killings, as well as almost yearly school shootings, many involving assault weapons such as the AR-15 along with high capacity magazines.

But amid a raging national debate in the wake of deadly shootings, the decision appears fundamentally market-driven, given a company statement cited lack of public demand and excess market capacity.

JB,

No mistake, he worked (past tense) on both sides of the pond. I am actually shocked, we did a tin foil hat conference call this morning and not a single one of us has gotten a phone call nor even an e-mail of apology telling us we have been correct all these years. One has to wonder what the Dents, Armstrongs and Caseys of the world have to say about this? Maybe they will employ the tried and true mainstream media tactic of ignoring their error and just moving on? Guess my standing offer to debate any of them re manipulation of precious metals is a moot point now…

LBMA Board Member & JP Morgan Managing Director Charged with Rigging Precious Metals
September 17, 2019

Michael Nowak, JP Morgan Chase managing director and head of the bank’s global precious metals desk, who is also a Board member of the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA), has just been indicted and charged by the US Department of Justice (DoJ) with manipulating the prices of precious metals-futures contracts over an 8 year period.

Racketeering Conspiracy and other Federal Crimes

In the indictment unsealed 16 September 2019, the DoJ charged LBMA Board member and JP Morgan managing director Nowak, along with JP Morgan precious metals trader Gregg Smith and former JP Morgan precious metals trader Christopher Jordan for:

“alleged participation in a racketeering conspiracy and other federal crimes in connection with the manipulation of the markets for precious metals futures contracts, which spanned over eight years and involved thousands of unlawful trading sequences.”

Commenting on the case, Department of Justice Assistant Attorney General Brian A. Benczkowski stated that:

“The defendants and others allegedly engaged in a massive, multiyear scheme to manipulate the market for precious metals futures contracts and defraud market participants.”

“These charges should leave no doubt that the Department is committed to prosecuting those who undermine the investing public’s trust in the integrity of our commodities markets.”

First we have GM and their massive strike:

All work has stopped at more than 50 General Motors factories and warehouses in the U.S. More than 48,000 workers are on strike

Now the massive Kaiser Permanente Hospital System going on strike.

Funny how this doesn’t make the headlines.

Are we coming to the end of a 2 decade long moratorium on wage growth?  Are wage pressures beginning to ignite inflationary fires?

80,000 Kaiser Workers Plan 7-Day Strike That Will Affect California, 5 Other States
September 16, 2019

The Coalition of Kaiser Permanente Unions announced late Monday their roughly 80,000 workers will walk off their jobs as part of a seven-day strike beginning Oct. 14 in California, five other states and the District of Columbia.

“We believe the only way to ensure our patients get the best care is to take this step,” said Eric Jines, a radiologic technologist at Kaiser Permanente in Los Angeles. “Our goal is to get Kaiser to stop committing unfair labor practices and get back on track as the best place to work and get care. There is no reason for Kaiser to let a strike happen when it has the resources to invest in patients, communities and workers.”

Patients will see picket lines at Kaiser Permanente hospital, medical office buildings and other facilities in California as well as in Colorado, Washington, Oregon, Maryland, Virginia and D.C.

The Coalition of Kaiser Permanente Unions came together in the 1990s as a way to end devastating strikes that threatened to cripple the company and make it less competitive.

Recovered From Russian Servers: 2010, 9/11 And The Impossibility Of Flying Heavy Aircraft Without Training
September 13, 2019

Nila Sagadevan is an aeronautical engineer and a pilot.

There are some who maintain that the mythical 9/11 hijackers, although proven to be too incompetent to fly a little Cessna 172, had acquired the impressive skills that enabled them to fly airliners by training in flight simulators.

What follows is an attempt to bury this myth once and for all, because I’ve heard this ludicrous explanation bandied about, ad nauseam, on the Internet and the TV networks—invariably by people who know nothing substantive about flight simulators, flying, or even airplanes.

A common misconception non-pilots have about simulators is how “easy” it is to operate them. They are indeed relatively easy to operate if the objective is to make a few lazy turns and frolic about in the “open sky”. But if the intent is to execute any kind of a maneuver with even the least bit of precision, the task immediately becomes quite daunting. And if the aim is to navigate to a specific geographic location hundreds of miles away while flying at over 500 MPH, 30,000 feet above the ground the challenges become virtually impossible for an untrained pilot.
