The Republican party, Goldman Sachs and the New World Order showed their cards today, but hardly anybody has seemed to take notice. The mainstream media has blinders on…the powers to be don’t want to let their hand selected choice for the White-House exposed yet. The horse race is a long distance affair, and John Kasich will be the horse with a powerful closing kick.
The current Speaker of the House has given way to the future face of the GOP.His replacement will surely be Rep. Jim Jordan, who not so coincidentally hails from Ohio…just like the former Speaker John Boehner. Jordan and Kasich are the closest of friends..and Jordan’s capture of the Speaker’s will fuel the Kasich machine.
Ohio is the key state for the Republicans to win, and the popular governor Kasich will surely prevail. His coattails will keep Virginia and North Carolina in check for the GOP…and the White-house will swing on the winner of Florida. Watch for Kasich to tab Marco Rubio for the #2 spot on the ticket….with the Supreme court and Florida’s state government controlled by the GOP…Florida is earmarked to catapult John Kasich to the presidency.
Let’s review the main players for the GOP
Donald Trump has peaked…the wind is out of the balloon…he will not win the nomination.
The current “2nd” choice , Dr Carson is totally out of his league..and has no chance for the nomination
Carly Fiorina, the flavor of the week…has no chance to gain the nomination….none..zero, zilch.
The early favorite, Jeb Bush is the rabbit in this horse race..the 9/11 Bush taint and his lack of charisma have sealed his demise. Bush will give way to Kasich…and will throw his backing to his buddy from Ohio..this is Pre-ordained
The only other contenders are Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz. They appeal to the same demographic,but Rubio comes from Florida…he will be Kasich’s ace in the hole.
Kasich has the backing of the banksters and big money corporate America…. it doesn’t hurt to have Fox news in your right pocket. . Goldman Sachs and Rupert Murdoch always get what they want.
First, Watch for Jim Jordan, Kasich’s right hand man ..to secure the Speaker of the House in January of 2016. On Tuesday February 9th, watch for the Kasich media machine to kick into high gear. He will get a “surprise’ 1st or 2nd place finish…and the “plan” will be off to the races.
At 33-1 current odds to win the White-house..Kasich is my longshot best bet…load up on the governor of Ohio, for better or worse,he will be the next president of the United States
Donald Trump is out to a huge early lead for the GOP nomination for president in 2016. The Donald is formidable, but he is racing way too fast too early…and their is VERY POWERFUL dark horse getting ready to ramble LATE for the GOP.
Let’s analyze the remaining true players in the field. Jeb Bush is yesterday’s news, stumbling and bumbling in 2nd place. Try as he will to run as “Jeb”…he is a “Bush” …and no amount of “clever marketing” can erase his faltering candidacy and disgraced last name. Some 150 million American’s doubt the veracity of what we’ve been told about 9/11. Look for Bush’s minion’s to back the eventually nominee for the Republicans.
Wisconsin governor Scott Walker…the extreme right wing Koch brother favorite…will not get the nomination. While he has some real support, it’s narrow …and the more the general public learns about Walker, the more it’s clear he will not be the one. The “Jeb” backer’s will never support Walker…look elsewhere.
Mike Huckabee..another right wing extremist…has absolutely zero chance of becoming the nominee. His “shock” comments got enough attention to place him in Thursdays’s Fox debate…this will be his high point in the national debate.
Ted Cruz….the colorful Texan…or Canadian?….is slick and interesting…but again the right wing extremists have too many candidates and not enough numbers to secure the nomination. He has an outside shot for a the Vice-presidential nomination.
Ben Carson is an interesting player…who has no chance to secure the nomination.
Marco Rubio is a decent candidate without national support, but a good bet for the #2 position on the ticket.
Rand Paul is an interesting candidate, who may make a run at the nomination. He will come up short…the mainstream Republicans do not like him at all. The Bush backer’s will stop Rand Paul by backing the eventual winner.
That take’s us to that “dark horse” …the late closing John Kasich, the 69th governor of the Ohio, the state that Republican’s must win . Currently listed as a 33-1 long-shot in the betting shops of London…this is the man of the hour.
This well spoken ,experienced and handsome candidate is set to quietly close ground and garner the Republican nomination. He is the obvious choice …The Jeb Bush “wing” of the party loves Kasich..and he is the heir to the throne when Jeb throws in the towel . Kasich is a moderate to slightly conservative candidate, perfectly positioned to rally the party against the Obama/Clinton oligarchy
Kasich served nine term in the house of representatives. In 2010 , he upended Ohio incumbent governor Ted Strickland in the closest gubernatorial election in Ohio history. He was re-elected in 2014 in a landslide..winning strong support among Independents and Democrats. The Republicans cannot win the White-house without Ohio. A Kasich nomination makes Ohio a “lock” for the GOP…
Reader’s of Ron Rambles may recall we predicted the exact outcome in 2012..every state correct 4 months prior to the election. At 33-1 odds , John Kasich is poised to unite the Republican party and become the 45th president of the United States…you can bet on it!
How many Americans know that the current regime in Ukraine was installed in a very bloody February 2014 coup d’etat, that was planned in the U.S. White House, and overseen by an Assistant Secretary of State, Victoria Nuland, and run by the CIA, and carried out for the White House by one of Ukraine’s two racist-fascist, or Nazi, political parties, whose founder and leader still controls Ukraine though not officially, even these many months after his coup, and which nazi party has been up to their elbows since then in a genocidal policy to exterminate the people in the region of Ukraine that had voted approximately 90% for the man whom Obama and those nazis overthrew in February? (Click onto that link, and to the more-detailed evidence that’s linked to there, in order to see the ultimate documentations of this entire horrific history, because it is history now, even though the American public were never informed about it while it was news — while and when it was happening, which it still is.)
And how many Americans know that one of the two main suspects in the bringing-down of the Malaysian MH17 airliner over Ukraine on July 17th has been given veto-power over the report that is to be issued from the official ‘investigation’ of the black boxes and other evidence in the case?
The ongoing hiding of all of this from the American public is perhaps even more stunning to the present writer than is the bloody American policy (including Obama’s personal role in it) itself.
Virtually all of the ‘news’ editors and producers — the ‘news’ executives, in America’s press — know, and have known all along, that these things are the case, because they’ve been receiving many news-submissions on them, with full and entirely credible documentation each time, ever since February, and have not made any of these facts public; they’ve not published this reality, when it was news, though they are supposed to be news-organizations.
I know this because I am one of the many independent investigative journalists who has been reporting in detail on these matters, throughout this time-period, and whose reports have been submitted to virtually all U.S. ‘news’ media — mainstream and alternative news, liberal and conservative news, Republican and Democratic news. And, with the exception of only about a half-dozen obscure but admirably authentic news-sites on the Internet (which is just a small fraction of the “alternative news” sites), all of this solidly documented information (just click on the links and you’ll see it documented there) has been intentionally withheld, from the American public, by virtually the entirety of the U.S. ‘news’ media.
Was the rigid control over a nation’s press more rigid and more universal in the Soviet Union, or in Nazi Germany, than is the case in today’s United States? One should not simply assume that it was, or that it wasn’t, but instead recognize how extremely far from being a democracy today’s United States has, in fact, become. This is the most shocking realization of all, because it’s the most suppressed news of all — news about the news-suppression by the ‘news’-media.
Regarding that charge of news-suppression in America: among the ‘news’ media to which these news-reports have been regularly submitted and yet never published, have also been specialized ones, such as fair.org, mediamatters.org, and Foreign Policy magazine; and yet even they refuse to report these realities about U.S. foreign policy and its cover-ups, and about the controlled U.S. ‘news’ media — in neither specialized field (neither press-reviews, nor international policy) is it being reported. And, of course, it’s not broadcast in any U.S. national media. That’s how dire the condition of what used to be American democracy has now become.
The biggest news-story of all is thus the one that is, and that will inevitably be, the most suppressed news-story of all: the news-suppression itself. It extends from the major ‘news’-media to the alternative and even to the specialized ‘news’-media.
Edward Snowden, the former CIA and NSA employee and then contractor who went public about the U.S. Government’s violating the 4th Amendment and other U.S. Constitutional provisions regarding Americans’ right to privacy and so forth, addressed on October 20th, a class at Harvard Law School, and he spoke about the impossibility of democracy to exist if there is not informed consent from the public of what the Government is doing, and of what the authentic aims of the Government are in what it is doing and intends to do. He necessarily had to speak from an undisclosed location, because the U.S. Government wants to imprison him (if not worse). He raised the extremely serious question as to whether, and the extent to which, a government can lie to its public and still be a democracy.
That’s the question. How can the public have a government representing informed consent, if the ‘news’ media are constantly, and systematically, lying about the most important things, and covering up that government’s worst, most heinous, crimes? Yet, this is what Americans have today.
The United States is thus no longer a model for any country except for a dictatorship. How likely is it that America’s press will let the American public know this now-established fact?
Something’s wrong — and it’s not people such as Edward Snowden.

The following article is the most in depth and eye opening reporting concerning MH370-9/11& Electronic Warfare. This is a MUST READ…for all thinking citizens of the world. This article has been NEVER BEEN PUBLISHED in the Western press.
On 8 March 2014, the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777-200ER operating the flight disappeared with 227 passengers of 15 nationalities and 12 crew members on board, following its last contact with air traffic control less than an hour after take-off.
A joint search-and-rescue effort covering an area of 27,000 sq mi (70,000 km2) in the busy Strait of Malacca and the South China Sea is being conducted by more than 12 countries. Vietnam briefly reduced its efforts on 11 March, but the search area continued to expand and searchers began to look for evidence on land. On 12 March, authorities also began to search the Andaman Sea, north of the Strait of Malacca, and the Malaysian government requested help from India to search in the area.
Stratfor VP of Intelligence Fred Burton examines the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 and the steps investigators take when looking at plane disaster cases.
On 11 March, it was reported that military radar indicated the aircraft turned west and continued flying for 70 minutes before disappearing near Pulau Perak; it “changed course after Kota Bharu and took a lower altitude.
Inspite of the intensive international search and rescue mission to find flight MH370 including authorities from 11 countries no one has yet been able to zero-in the exact location of the crash.
The plane just magically disappeared. But invisible doesn’t imply inaudible.
On 11th March eight villagers from Marang lodged police reports claiming that they had heard a loud noise last Saturday coming from the direction of Pulau Kapas and believed it was linked to the disappearance of a Malaysia Airlines (MAS) flight on that day.
All of them, from Kampung Pantai Seberang Marang, made the reports at the Marang district police headquarters at about 10.30am. One of them, Alias Salleh, 36, said he and seven fellow villagers were seated on a bench about 400 metres from the Marang beach at 1.20am when they heard the noise, which sounded like the fan of a jet engine.
“The loud and frightening noise came from the north-east of Pulau Kapas and we ran in that direction to find out the cause. We looked around the Rhu Muda beach, but did not see anything unusual,” said the lorry driver.
Replying to a question, Alias said they lodged the police report so that it would be of help to the authorities who were trying to locate the missing MAS aircraft.
Another villager, Mohd Yusri Mohd Yusof, 34, said when he heard the strange noise, he thought a tsunami was about to strike.
“My friends and I heard the ringing noise for about two minutes. I decided to lodge the police report after seeing the media reports on the lost flight,” he said. – Bernama
Even Telegraph correspondent Tom Phillips reported the same.
On March 12 the Terengganu police confirmed having received a report on a loud explosion heard by local villagers in Marang last Saturday morning, the day the Beijing-bound Malaysia Airlines (MAS) MH370 went missing.
How can an entire Boeing 777-200ER vanish from military radars of several countries and become invisible to people – who can hear the noise of fans of it’s jet engines but cannot see it ?
Imagine a Boeing hovering over your head but you can’t see the damn thing !!!
Is some kind of advanced military technology being used ?
Do such technology exist ?
Electronic Warfare – Cloaking Technology
New electronic weapons allow jamming, blinding, deafening and more, so that a plane could possibly vanish from radar detection and security systems would not be activated. Basic radar Electronic Counter Measure Strategies used in Electronic Warfare (EW) are:
1) Radar Interference,
2) Target Modifications
3) Changing Electrical Properties of Air.
A U.S. intelligence assessment, described to The Daily Beast by current and former U.S. intelligence officials, concluded that any Israeli attack on hardened nuclear sites in Iran would go far beyond airstrikes from F-15 and F-16 fighter planes and likely include electronic warfare against Iran’s electric grid, Internet, cellphone network, and emergency frequencies for firemen and police officers.
For example, Israel has developed a weapon capable of mimicking a maintenance cellphone signal that commands a cell network to “sleep,” effectively stopping transmissions, officials confirmed. The Israelis also have jammers capable of creating interference within Iran’s emergency frequencies for first responders.
In a 2007 attack on a suspected nuclear site at al-Kibar, the Syrian military got a taste of this warfare when Israeli planes “spoofed” the country’s air-defense radars, at first making it appear that no jets were in the sky and then in an instant making the radar believe the sky was filled with hundreds of planes.
Last year, it was announced that new stealth technology makes airplanes invisible not only to radar, it also renders them hidden to the human eye as well — “just like an invisibility cloak in a Hollywood sci-fi thriller,”
China had just touted its work on a “cloaking” technology using a hexagonal array of glass-like panels to bend light around an object, obscuring it from view, as though hidden by an invisibility cloak. Experts confirmed that the technology was legit — and not unlike American and European projects from the past few years.
“The general public … might not hear about how far the U.S. has really come, because it is and should remain classified,” firearms expert Chris Sajnog, a former Navy SEAL, told FoxNews.com. “Other countries are still playing catch-up — but they’re closing the gap.”
The DailyMail offers a range of scenarios for what could have happened to the flight ?
One of the scenarios offered is that of a possible use of Electronic Warfare.
20 passengers on-board the flight were experts in this technology.
They belonged to a Austin, Texas-based company Freescale Semiconductors.
The 20 Freescale employees, among 239 people on flight MH370, were mostly engineers and other experts working to make the company’s chip facilities in Tianjin, China, and Kuala Lumpur more efficient, said Mitch Haws, vice president, global communications and investor relations.
“These were people with a lot of experience and technical background and they were very important people,” Haws said. “It’s definitely a loss for the company.”
In Malaysia, Freescale’s modern operations facility that manufactures and tests integrated circuits (IC) is based in Petaling Jaya.
Based on information obtained from Freescale’s website, the facility began operations in 1972 covering an eight hectare site and is specifically designed for the manufacturing and testing of microprocessors, digital signal processors and integrated radio frequency circuits.
It also owns Freescale RF which is involved in creating solutions for Aerospace and Defence listed below.

Every Connection Matters
In the 1960s, one of the U. S. space program‘s goals was to land a man on the moon and return him safely to Earth. In 1968, NASA began manned Apollo flights that led to the first lunar landing in July 1969. Apollo 11 was particularly significant for hundreds of employees involved in designing, testing and producing its electronics. A division of Motorola, which became Freescale Semiconductor, supplied thousands of semiconductor devices, ground-based tracking and checkout equipment, and 12 on-board tracking and communications units. An “up-data link” in the Apollo’s command module received signals from Earth to relay to other on-board systems. A transponder received and transmitted voice and television signals and scientific data.
In September 2006, Carlyle led a consortium, comprising Blackstone Group, Permira and TPG Capital, in the $17.6 billion takeover of Freescale Semiconductor. At the time of its announcement, Freescale would be the largest leveraged buyout of a technology company ever, surpassing the 2005 buyout of SunGard. The buyers were forced to pay an extra $800 million because KKR made a last minute bid as the original deal was about to be signed. Shortly after the deal closed in late 2006, cell phone sales at Motorola Corp., Freescale’s former corporate parent and a major customer, began dropping sharply. In addition, in the recession of 2008-2009, Freescale’s chip sales to automakers fell off, and the company came under great financial strain.
Freescale Semiconductor is just a part of the puzzle. To get the complete picture we’ll need to understand the workings of these different groups; as it is only when we lay all the pieces on the table will the entire picture emerge.
Freescale is a main contributor of chip technology for Curtiss Wright with their defense technology. Curtiss Wright is also a holdings company owned by the same BLACKROCK ADVISORS & VANGUARD GROUP.
Curtiss-Wright Controls unleashes performance of Freescale’s QorIQ™ P4080 device for military/aerospace applications
During World War II, Curtiss-Wright produced 142,840 aircraft engines, 146,468 electric propellers and 29,269 airplanes.
Throughout the 1930s, Curtiss-Wright designed and built aircraft for military, commercial, and private markets. But it was the Wright engine division and the longstanding relationship with the US military that would help the company through the difficult years of the Great Depression. In 1937, the company developed the P-36 fighter aircraft, resulting in the largest peacetime aircraft order ever given by the Army Air Corps. Curtiss-Wright also sold the P-36 abroad, where they were used in the early days of World War II.
The Blackstone Group
Freescale’s biggest institutional holder is The Blackstone Group.
The Blackstone Group, a private investment bank with offices in New York and London, was founded in 1985 by its Chairman, Peter G.Peterson, and its President and CEO, Stephen A. Schwarzman.
Blackstone chairman Peter G. Petersen is also Chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and Chairman of the board of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). His partner Stephen A. Schwarzman is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).
Kissinger McLarty Associates, which is Henry Kissinger’s consulting firm has a “strategic alliance” with the Blackstone Group “which is designed to help provide financial advisory services to corporations seeking high-level strategic advice.”
One such Kissinger Associates’ strategic advice firm is APCO Worldwide which handles much more than just Public Relations for one of India’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi. More on it here APCO Worldwide – Orchestrating our Future.
Blackstone also ventured into other businesses, most notably investment management. In 1987 Blackstone entered into a 50–50 partnership with the founders of BlackRock, Larry Fink and Ralph Schlosstein.
On May 8, 2009, in the wake of the global financial crisis, BlackRock was commissioned to help the U.S. government evaluate its distressed assets, and was subsequently awarded a $130 billion contract to manage these assets. As of September 30, 2013, BlackRock had $4.096 trillion in assets under management.
The parent company Blackrock, LLC has been headed by the FED director, and CFR director. Blackrock is awarded contracts by the Federal Reserve and the US Treasury.
It is a combination of all these holding companies that together gave us 911.
911 Money Trail
In 1985, the Margaret Thatcher led British government, signed a long-term agreement with the Saudi Arabian monarchy, under which the British arms cartel, BAE Systems, provided fighter jets and other military equipment and services, in return for vast quantities of Saudi oil. The barter agreement, known as “Al-Yamamah” (the Arabic word for “the dove”) has remained in force up to the present day.
Under Al-Yamamah, a tightly interlocking consortium of Anglo-Dutch and Anglo-American cartels—including BAE, BP, Royal Dutch Shell, Lazard Bank, HSBC (formerly the British East India Company’s Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation created through Rothschild’s Colonization of Indiaforcibly growing Opium in India and selling it to China), and the Carlyle Group—has amassed an estimated $80-100 billion in off-budget, hidden funds, which have been utilized for covert operations and gun-running on a global scale—totally outside the jurisdiction and oversight of any government. This massive offshore fund is at the center of the power of the Anglo-Dutch financial oligarchy, which has promoted globalization and perpetual war for the last three decades and longer.
Under the Al-Yamamah agreements, which have been perpetuated by every British government, Saudi Arabia has provided 600,000 barrels of crude oil to BAE every day since September 1985.
Glympton, Oxfordshire. The 2,000 acre manor house and sporting estate purchased by Prince Bandar after he arranged the al-Yamamah arms deal.
In 2002 Blair government shocked some people with the announcement that the Carlyle Group—the private equity fund tied tightly to the Bush family—was to be awarded a large stake in QinetiQ, the “public private partnership.”
On Feb. 2, 2003, less than a month before the Cheney-Blair-Bush invasion of Iraq, the Carlyle group paid £42.3 million for a 34% holding in QinetiQ. When a large block of QinetiQ stock shares was later put on the public market, the Carlyle Group got about an eight-fold return on its investment.
Prince Bandar used $750 million of his Al-Yamamah kickback to purchase shares in the Carlyle Group private equity fund. As of 2007, that investment was worth nearly $4 billion.
Prince Bandar’s 2006 semi-authorized biography, The Prince—The Secret Story of the World’s Most Intriguing Royal, by his longtime British friend William Simpson, described the “unique” features of the Al-Yamamah barter deal in stunningly blunt language.
Now the real question is —
What has some U.S. military and intelligence officials deeply disturbed, however, is the question of whether some of the Al-Yamamah money got into the hands of the 9/11 hijackers—and whether that was the result of a terrible oversight, or something more sinister.
The two Saudi intelligence officers, Osama Basnan and Omar al-Bayoumi, received between $51,000 and $73,000 from Bandar and his wife, Princess Haifa, beginning in December 1999. A significant portion of those funds went to Alhazmiand Almihdar, to set them up in an apartment, and enroll them in flight school. For a short period of time, prior to the 9/11 attacks, Saudi intelligence agents Basnan and al-Bayoumi lived in the same San Diego, Calif. Apartment complex, Parkwood Apartments, as the two hijackers.
Former Sen. Bob Graham (D-Fla.), who chaired the Senate Intelligence Committee at the time of the 9/11 investigation, has assailed the FBI for failing to fully pursue the Saudi-9/11 money trail. Both he and co-chair Sen. Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) bitterly complained that the FBI would not allow committee investigators to question the FBI agents who had conducted the original interviews with Basnan and al-Bayoumi, shortly after 9/11.
The San Diego apartment where 9/11 hijackers Alhazmi and Almihdhar lived, was rented by an FBI informant, who received a reported $3,500 per month from the Bureau for keeping tabs on the local Muslim community, according to one U.S. intelligence source. The fact that two of the 9/11 hijackers lived under the same roof as an FBI snitch is still a source of great internal turmoil at the FBI.
Behind the 9/11 attacks was the hand of the British Empire, working through allied Saudi factions. In effect, 9/11 was the work of the “BAE Al-Yamamah” Anglo-Saudi imperial apparatus, which forms the core of the ongoing British Sykes-Picot control over the entire Persian Gulf and extended South-west Asia.
During the Twelfth Public Hearing of NATIONAL COMMISSION ON TERRORIST ATTACKS UPON THE UNITED STATES – that is the 9/11 Commission Hearings for June 17, 2004, Commissioner Lehman asked a question to General Richard Myers, USAF, Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff.
Mr Lehman : What have you guys done to equip our Air Guard and other NORAD potentially assigned units with the training, with the rules of engagement and the hardware that gives them an option other than what we have now, which is just to destroy the aircraft and all its passengers?
Gen. Myers : I’m aware of at least one program which is classified, so we can either talk about it off-line or provide you the classified paper on it, there may be others, to do exactly that.
The program he was referring to was explained three years ago in 2001 by President George Bush.
Speaking to a crowd at Chicago O’Hare International Airport in September 2001, President Bush said the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks should not keep Americans from taking to the skies.
The president said new security measures would also dramatically increase the number of plainclothes federal marshals on airplanes, give $500 million to developing enhanced cockpit security and enable air traffic controllers to take over a distressed aircraft and land it by remote control.
BAE Systems readily acknowledge work on this kind of technology, such as the Adaptiv program, which aims to hide armored vehicles.
Adaptiv – a cloak of invisibility – BAE Systems
“The U.S. military is among many who have expressed interest in Adaptiv, which could be transferred to other platforms, such as ships and helicopters,” said Mike Sweeney, a spokesman for BAE.
HKP15b – Helicopter with Adaptiv Technology. BAE Systems
BAE’s technology, similar to what the Chinese are now touting, deploys sheets of hexagonal “pixels” that can change temperature very rapidly. On-board cameras pick up the scenery and display it on the vehicle, which can allow a moving tank to match its surroundings.
Research is concentrated mainly on the infrared spectrum, a pressing concern for the Swedish government group funding the work. But BAE has combined its pixels with technologies that camouflage other parts of the electro-magnetic spectrum to provide all-round stealth.
The high tech camouflage system uses modules, which look like cells in a honeycomb to cover the flanks of an armoured vehicle. The modules are made of elements that can be cooled or heated up very quickly as well as controlled individually, allowing different patterns to be created.
Adaptiv – a cloak of invisibility – BAE Systems
The vehicle essentially works like a chameleon, able to mimic its surroundings, or copy other objects such as trucks and cars that can be projected onto the panels from a detailed image bank. The vehicle is also able to signal peaceful intend through flashing text messages across its flank or by creating patterns that can easily be recognized by friendly forces.
BAE Systems is developing fourth generation radiation hardened computers for space applications through a license announced today for Power Architecture® processor cores from Freescale.
Blackstone Real Estate Advisors, the global real estate investment and management arm of The Blackstone Group, L.P., announced that it has purchased, from Teachers Insurance (another of Freescale’s holdings owner) and Annuity Association, the participating mortgage secured by 7 World Trade Center, a commercial office complex controlled by real estate developer Larry Silverstein”
Fifty days before 9/11
Larry Silverstein’s Silverstein Properties and Frank Lowy’s Westfield America secured a 99-year lease on World Trade Center Buildings One, Two, Four and Five. Silverstein already owned Building Seven.
Silverstein and Westfield America insured the WTC complex for $3.55 billion, but after the attacks of September 11 lodged a claim for $7.1 billion on the premise that each plane collision constituted a separate act of terrorism, doubling the payout.
Steve Galiotos, a Managing Director of The Blackstone Group, said, “Rising rental rates coupled with the lack of available office space in downtown Manhattan, made 7 World Trade Center an attractive investment opportunity for Blackstone. We are pleased to be a lender to Larry Silverstein, a seasoned real estate veteran, on one of Manhattan’s trophy properties.” 7 World Trade Center is the second investment made by Blackstone in a Silverstein office building. In April 2000, Blackstone formed a joint venture with Larry Silverstein and Walton Street Capital to own and operate the Equitable Building at 120 Broadway in downtown Manhattan.
Larry Silverstein stated that “Blackstone has one of the most exceptional track records in real estate investment and we are pleased to have them as a primary lender to a premier New York office property. Their commitment demonstrates the strength of this market.”

As for the 4 passengers travelling on fake passports Malaysia’s civil aviation chief Azharuddin Abdul Rahman hasrepeatedly said that the two men who boarded the plane were NOT of ‘Asian appearance’.
To an extent that when asked by a reporter what they looked like ‘roughly’; Azharuddin Abdul Rahman replied: ‘Do you know of a footballer by the name of (Mario) Balotelli? He is an Italian. Do you know how he looks like?’
A reporter then asked, ‘Is he black?’
Azharuddin Abdul Rahman replied, ‘Yes’.
Mario Balotelli Italian Footballer
However various other authorities denied these and later pictures of the suspects with asian origin were released.
A Malaysian police officer holds photos of two persons believed to be the passengers who had stolen passports on the Malaysia Airlines flight that went missing
Interestingly, the pictures were doctored with same lower body (legs) for both the suspects.
Azharuddin is later reported saying, “There are some things that I can tell you and some things that I can’t” on being asked why the search includes northern parts of the Malacca Strait, on the opposite side of the Malay Peninsula and far west of the plane’s last known location. The United States “kidnapped” the airliner as part of a conspiracy to “sabotage the relationship between Iran and China and Southeast Asia,”parliamentarian Hossein Naghavi Hosseini said, according to a translation by The New York Times.
“Documents published by the Western media about two Iranians getting on the plane without passports is psychological warfare,” he said Tuesday, according to The Times.
“Americans recruit some people for such kinds of operations so they can throw the blame on other countries, especially Muslim countries.”
The same day Hosseini made the farfetched statement that Interpol and Malaysian officials revealed the identities of the two Iranians traveling with false documents and all but ruled out they were terrorists.
The once respected Huffington Post continues to destroy all the good work and credibility their “news” product once had….They continue their headstrong actions….. to make an editorial “comment”..and not reporting the news.
Love him or hate him, Donald Trump continues to shake up the political landscape in an unprecedented fashion.
The brain trust at the Huffington Post continue to stomp their feet and refuse to cover Trump’s campaign. They have relegated the news about America’s disenchantment with regular “politicians” … refusing to put Trump on the front page…labeling his “news” ..entertainment.
What a head slap to the American people. The huffy and puffy post has taken their bat and ball…and checked out of the news business. Whether your a supporter of Trump or not…all Americans should be furious our news media doesn’t report the news…they just play political games..and feed their readers a pile of shit.
Time for the Huffington Post to grow up…and admit their miscalculation…and report the news..not their editorial bullshit!
Original article published July 23rd, 2015
The smug and pretentious Huffington Post decided to “remove” Donald Trump from it’s political coverage …and move any stories about him to it’s entertainment page.
I took personal affront that a media company took such a stance. Please note, I am not a Trump backer or supporter, and it’s unlikely I would vote for him. However, he’s contributed to some important dialogue…he’s a real candidate…someone not beholden to lobbyists for money. He doesn’t need to presstitute himself to the Arriana Huffington’s of the world.
The Huffington Post insulted every American by stacking it’s coverage against legitimate candidates they don’t like. So, the Huffinton Post HAS BEED DELETED from my computers and iphone…and I will never visit the site again….maybe we should all delete the Huffington Post..seems fair to me.
“There will be signs in the sun and moon and stars…and on the earth dismay among nations…”
Special Report from Sister Ciara
For those of ebionitic thought among our Order following kabalistic disciplines, these past three days have now been placed into their proper order with the predicted 14-year signs having been shown, interpreted and the path to follow now certain.
As this discipline explains, being a multiple of 7, 14 partakes of its importance and, being double that number, implies a double measure of spiritual perfection (i.e. knowledge).
The number 2 with which it is combined (2×7) also brings its own significance into its meaning, as it does in Matthew 1, where the genealogy of Jesus is divided up and given in sets of 14 (2×7) generations, meaning that 2 signs of significance would be made manifest…one for each 7 year period.
One must understand, of course, that according to this discipline, an event, especially those of world importance, can never be fully understood until its 14-year signs are manifested…which in this particular case was the 11 September 2001 (9/11) attacks upon the United States, and whose 14-year anniversary was yesterday.
In their most simplistic interpretation of these 2 signs, these Sisters note that the double rainbow over the destroyed World Trade Center site one day prior to the 14th anniversary of 9/11 can reaffirm to the peoples of this great city of God’s mercy should they turn to Him again…for He has been reminded of their tragedy and sorrow and what they were once like before this destruction was wrought upon them… “And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.” Genesis 9:16
But, to those who caused the great 9/11 destruction and terror, however, the 2nd sign of lighting is a warning of a great destruction to come from God. “His lightning lights up the world; the earth sees and trembles.” Psalm 97:4
Now to fully understand both the “signs of events”, and their interpretations, one needs to know who these particular Sisters of ebionitic thought are…and which I’ll freely admit to you now is nearly beyond normal understanding; if not belief….but is, nevertheless, true.
Why does the Russian media seem to be far more on the ball than the mainstream media in the United States much of the time? Could it be possible that Russian reporters have more freedom to talk about important issues than reporters that work for the major corporate conglomerates in the United States do? Of course the Russian media is far from perfect. They put out pro-Russian propaganda just like the U.S. media puts out pro-American propaganda. But I must admit that I often find that Russian news sources are willing to tackle controversial issues that the mainstream media in the United States would not touch with a ten foot pole. This includes the critical events that are coming up this September.
Even after everything that has been said and written in the alternative media about what is going to happen during September, most Americans are still completely ignorant about the history changing events that are going to take place next month.
First of all, the most important template for global governance that the United Nations has ever dreamed up is going to be launched at a major conference from September 25th to September 27th. The launching of this “new universal agenda” is such an important event that the Pope is going to be traveling to New York City to give the address that will kick off this conference. This new plan is known as “the 2030 Agenda“, and it is being called “Agenda 21 on steroids”. This is one of the most significant steps toward global government in the history of the world, and yet the mainstream media in the United States is saying virtually nothing about it.
Secondly, we also know that a major push for the establishment of a Palestinian state is being planned for September. It has been widely reported by the international media that France plans to submit a UN Security Council resolution which would formally recognize a Palestinian state for the first time ever. This is one of the most critical moments in the modern history of the Middle East, and yet the mainstream media in the United States is saying virtually nothing about it.
And even though articles and videos that discuss all of these things are going viral all over the Internet, the mainstream media in the United States has been strangely silent about all of it.
Fortunately, there are international news sources out there that are willing to address these topics, and some of them just happen to be in Russia.
When I first came across Sputnik News, I didn’t quite know what to make of it. At first I thought that it might be some random blogger that had started up a news website and had chosen a really bad name. But it turns out that it is actually fully owned and operated by the government of Russia. The following comes from Wikipedia…
And I have to admit that Sputnik News is willing to address many things that the corporate-controlled media in the U.S. simply will not touch. For example, the following is from a recent Sputnik article about the financial crash that is coming this fall…
The founder of Trends Research, who predicted the “panic of 2008,” believes that soon we will witness the crash of a global stock market and predicts “the economic earthquake [that] will send reverberations around the world”.
“There’s going to be panic on the streets from Wall Street to Shanghai, to the UK down to Brazil.” Celente told King World News. “You’re going to see one market after another begin to collapse.”
Analyst Larry Edelson took the fear to the next level as he even predicted the exact day the catastrophe begins, or, as he called it, a “rollercoaster ride through hell.”
“On October 7, 2015, the first economic super cycle since 1929 will trigger a global financial crisis of epic proportions.” He said.
“It will bring Europe, Japan and the United States to their knees, sending nearly one billion human beings on a roller-coaster ride through hell for the next five years. A ride like no generation has ever seen.”
RT is another Russian news outlet that I find to be superior to U.S. news organizations in a lot of ways. In one recent article, RT was even willing to discuss the coming end of the Biblical Shemitah year in September…
Indeed, the hysteria over next month has reached such a fever pitch that even seasoned experts are cracking open their dusty Bible for signposts.
The seventh year of the Biblical agricultural cycle – as set down in the Torah – just happens to fall on September 15, 2015. This is a real millennial event, with a so-called tetrad of blood moons (four consecutive lunar eclipses) all falling on Judaic religious days. For those who track such astrological occurrences, a number of major events have occurred at the end of the “7-year business cycle,” as it is now commonly known.
In 2008, for example, the world suffered its worst financial crisis in decades, while in September 2001 the United States experienced the worst-ever terror attack on its territory, as well as a massive sell-off on Wall Street when markets reopened on Sept. 17.
Whatever the case may be, Americans – increasingly wary of the weak underbelly of their economy – are gearing up for fireworks in September. But even if nothing happens, all that prepping and stockpiling – much like in the runup to the overhyped Y2K non-event – will certainly boost economic performance across the board.
And if you can believe it, even Pravda has talked about what is coming up this September.
When I was growing up, Pravda was regarded to be the official voice of the evil empire. Whatever Pravda reported back in those days was generally thought to be pro-Soviet propaganda. And that was generally true at that time. But today, Pravda has a lot more freedom to discuss the issues that really matter than a lot of U.S. news outlets do. For instance, earlier this year Pravda also discussed the potential for a financial apocalypse in September…
Again, 2001 brought social conflict, financial calamity and it was the pivot point that triggered a cascade of negative events that would go on for years, including the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Another 7- year period would elapse and bring us to Sept. 29, 2008. On this infamous day stocks skidded, with the Dow slumping nearly 777 points, the biggest single-day point loss ever. Approximately $1.2 trillion in market value vanished in a twinkling.
Again, seven years to the month exactly from the 2001 crash. But apparently no one noticed this pattern because the financial presstitute corps never mentioned it.
Why won’t the mainstream media in the United States talk about these things?
Is it because they are too busy talking about issues that are even more important?
Of course not. Just consider some of the top headlines from the front pages of major U.S. news outlets on Monday…
Wikipedia articles are more propaganda than they are historical accounts. And, often, their cited sources are misleading, or even false.
On 15 August 2007, the BBC headlined “Wikipedia Shows CIA Page Edits,” and Jonathan Fildes reported that, “An online tool that claims to reveal the identity of organizations that edit Wikipedia pages has revealed that the CIA was involved in editing entries.” I.e.: What the CIA doesn’t like, they can (and do) eliminate or change.
More recently, on 25 June 2015, an anonymous reddit poster, “moose,” listed and linked directly to 18 different news reports, in such media as New York Times, Washington Post, Telegraph, Mirror, Guardian, and Newsweek, reporting about wikipedia edits that were supplied not only by the CIA but by other U.S. Government offices, and by large corporations. That person opened with a news report which implicated Wikipedia itself, “Wikipedia honcho caught in scandal quits, defends paid edits,” in which Wikipedia’s own corruption was discussed. Most of the other news reports there concerned unpaid edits by employees at CIA, congressional and British parliamentary offices, the DCRI (French equivalent of the U.S. CIA), large corporations, self-interested individuals, and others. One article even concerned a report that, “All-Russia State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company (VGTRK) changed a Russian language version of a page listing civil aviation accidents to say that ‘The plane [flight MH17] was shot down by Ukrainian soldiers’.” Basically, wikipedia has been revealed to be a river of ‘information’ that’s polluted by so many self-interested sources as to be no more reliable than, say: “New York Times, Washington Post, Telegraph, Mirror, Guardian, and Newsweek.”
And that’s not reliable at all. For example, everybody knew in 2002 and 2003 that Saddam Hussein was stockpiling WMD “Weapons of Mass Destruction,” because they had read it in such ‘news’ sources asthat. Consequently, even when wikipedia links to those sorts of articles, it can be propagating lies. After all, The New York Times and Washington Post were stenographically ‘reporting’ the lies from the White House as if those lies were truths (not challenging them at all); so, the fame of a publisher has nothing to do with the honesty (the integrity and carefulness) of its ‘news’ reporting. Stenographic ‘news’ reporting isn’t news-reporting; it is propaganda, no matter how famous and respected the ‘news’ medium happens (unfortunately) to be. Some of the most unreliable ‘news’ media have top prestige.
THE MALAYSIAN AIRLINER OVER UKRAINE
As an example: wikipedia’s English-language article about the 17 July 2014 shoot-down of the MH17 Malaysian airliner is a shameless propaganda-piece by the U.S. Government and its agents. Its (at present) 320 footnote-sources don’t include any of the many reports (virtually all in the foreign press) that present evidence the Ukrainian government shot down this airliner. Among the important issues that aren’t even raised, are: why was the Ukrainian government given veto-power over any final report which will be issued by the official four-nation MH17 investigating team: Netherlands, Belgium, Australia, and Ukraine? Why was Ukraine even included in this team to investigate a crime in which one of the two main suspects is the Ukrainian government itself?
Why was the presence of 30mm bullet-holes in the side-panel next to the pilot not mentioned in this lengthy wikipedia article? (If this plane had been brought down by only a missile, such as wikipedia assumes, there wouldn’t be any bullet-holes — much less, hundreds of them, as there are.) Why was the first analysis of that side-panel — which is the best and most reliable piece of evidence that exists about how this disaster actually happened — ignored altogether in the wikipedia article? After all, that analysis of the side-panel has subsequently been further confirmed by other reliable evidence, all of which the article also ignores.
I have edited some wikipedia articles, but I won’t edit the one on MH17: it’s too thoroughly rotten with speculative and other bad sources, so that it would need to be entirely rewritten — and bogus ‘evidence’ removed from it — in order for the article to present an account that’s based upon the best evidence regarding each of its particulars. Wikipedia’s article is thoroughly based on anti-Russian propaganda; it might as well have been written by the CIA (like the case that was presented about “Saddam’s WMD” was).
Here is the wikipedia article, so that you can see what U.S. propaganda says about the downing of MH17.
Here is my latest article about the downing of the MH17.
Here is my most comprehensive article reconstructing, on a best-evidence basis, how and why and who shot down this airliner.
The core of my case there is the same item of evidence to which Haisenko first called the public’s attention: that side-panel. I basically accept his reconstruction of how the plane came down, but I supplement it with additional evidence. Please click onto any link in the article, to see the evidence more fully analyzed, in the given linked-to source, wherever you have further questions that aren’t directly addressed in the article.
My articles present far fewer items of ‘evidence’ than does the wikipedia article, because I exclude all but the most-reliable evidence about any given detail. There is so much speculation that’s published, and so much bogus ‘evidence’; my guiding principle is therefore to rely only upon the least-speculative argument that refers to only the most-reliable, assuredly untampered-with, items of evidence. This is what one is supposed to do in a court of law; it’s the reason why judges are authorized to exclude from being presented to jurors any ‘evidence’ that fails to meet modern legal/forensic standards of authenticity and reliability. It’s the only way that an unprejudiced verdict can even become possible. It’s the prerequisite to history, as opposed to mere myth.
That’s the contrast between my articles about the MH17 disaster, and the 320 articles from which the wikipedia article about MH17 is constructed. And it also separates my articles from wikipedia’s article itself about the subject, “Malaysia Airlines Flight 17.”
What’s especially wrong about the wikipedia account is that it doesn’t even refer to the 30mm bullet holes in that side panel — evidence that is inconsistent with the U.S.-Ukrainian account (wikipedia’s account) of how this airliner was shot down. (Wikipedia’s article is instead obsessed with “a Buk missile launcher” — the theory of the case that’s pumped by America’s and Ukraine’s governments, and which is entirely inconsistent with such bullet-holes. You don’t get bullet-holes from 33,000+ feet away.) And the wikipedia article also doesn’t refer to Peter Haisenko, the brilliant former Luftahansa pilot who first pointed out those bullet holes in the side-panel, and who noted that there wouldn’t be any, much less hundreds of, bullet-holes firing directly into the pilot’s body, if the only thing that had brought down this airliner were shrapnel from some missile fired from 33,000 feet below. You simply can’t target the pilot’s belly and pump perhaps a thousand bullets into it from 33,000 feet down. This side-panel decimates the American-Ukrainian theory of the case — and so decimates wikipedia’s propagandistic article.
And why wasn’t the autopsy on the pilot made public? Everyone needs to know what was inside that corpse. But wikipedia and the ‘news’ media show no interest in that crucial question, either.
We don’t live in a democracy. This is a dictatorship. The ‘news’ media cannot be trusted by any intelligent and open-minded person. To find the truth, one (unfortunately) needs to investigate on one’s own and take the attitude that only the most solid evidence and the least speculative argument constitutes authentic history, on anything. All else — any casual trusting of the ‘news’ media — is merely accepting lies and myths, which are designed to manipulate people (like when we invaded Iraq), instead of to inform them. There is more than ample reason to distrust the ‘news’ media. And wikipedia is just as manipulated as the rest.
We live now in a culture where lies and myths drown out truth. In other words: we live in a dictatorship. That’s today’s USA. This is the reality, in which we live. And the Big Lie is: it’s not so. But the evidence sadly proves: it’s so; it clearly is the case.
Donald Trump is a businessman that’s not waiting in line suckling up to the rich and powerful to raise money to run for president. He doesn’t need the Koch money…he’s not coddling to the mainstream media..he doesn’t have to. Ridicule him all you want…Trump has tremendous momentum, and when compared to GOP competition…he is as smart as any of them…and will not have to bow to the traditional power brokers.
Most of my contacts are Independent leaning individuals…and there’s almost universal relief that there is a candidate who does NOT carry the Illuminati’s dirty water. He can speak freely about our current immigration debacle..while not always subtle, there’s a feeling out there in the heartland that we need someone to kick some mainstream media ass and put America ahead of trite political correctness. Most interesting, Donald Trump has the possibility of carrying a larger percentage of the Hispanic vote than any Republican in history.
His background may lend himself to a candidate that knows how to create jobs…and not be beholden to the the traditional banksters and other criminal elements that control our electoral process. Trump appeals to Independents, conservative Democrats, Republicans and the disenfranchised. Considering that a forlorn member of the dangerous Bush family is his main competition, do not be surprised if Trump is here for the long run.
Can he win it all? Bernie Sanders will bloody Hillary Clinton before she backs into the Democratic nomination, Considering Hillary’s penchant for lies and deception …and what other ugliness will be revealed before the general election…Hillary Clinton may be a very vulnerable Democratic nominee
Trump may very well win a resounding victory in 2016….maybe something different is just what the American people need!
Ever since I started The Economic Collapse Blog in late 2009, I have never issued any kind of “red alert” for any specific period of time. As an attorney, I was trained to be level-headed and to only come to conclusions that were warranted by the evidence.
So this is not something that I am doing lightly.
Based on information that I have received, things that I have been told, and thousands of hours of research that have gone into the publication of more than 1,300 articles about our ongoing economic collapse, I have come to the conclusion that a major financial collapse is imminent. Therefore, I am issuing a RED ALERT for the last six months of 2015.
To clarify, when I say “imminent” I do not mean that it will happen within the next 48 hours. And I am not saying that our problems will be “over” once we get to the end of 2015. In fact, I believe that the truth is that our problems will only be just beginning as we enter 2016.
What I am attempting to communicate is that we are right at the door of a major turning point. About this time of the year back in 2008, my wife and I went to visit her parents. As we sat in their living room, I explained to them that we were on the verge of a major financial crisis, and of course the events that happened a few months later showed that I was right on the money.
This time around, I wish that I could visit the living rooms of all of my readers and explain to them why we are on the verge of another major financial crisis. Unfortunately, that is not possible, but hopefully this article will suffice. Please share it with your friends, your family and anyone else that you want to warn about what is coming.
Let’s start with a little discussion about the U.S. economy. Most of the time, when I use the term “economic collapse” what most people are actually thinking of is a “financial collapse”. And we will talk about the imminent “financial collapse” later on in this article. But just because stocks have recently been hitting all-time record highs does not mean that the overall economy has been doing well. This is a theme that I have hammered on over and over again. It is my contention that we are in the midst of a long-term economic collapse that has been happening for many years, that is happening as you read this article, and that will greatly accelerate over the coming months.
Let me give you just one quick example. When an economy is healthy, money tends to circulate fairly rapidly. I buy something from you, then you take that money and buy something from someone else, etc. In a stable and growing economy, people generally feel good about things and they are not afraid to spend.
But during hard times, the exact opposite happens. That is why the velocity of money almost always slows down during a recession. As you can see from the chart below, the velocity of money has indeed gone down during every recession since 1960.
Once a recession is over, the velocity of money is supposed to go back up. But a funny thing happened after the last recession ended. The velocity of money continued to go down, and it has now hit an all-time record low…
This is the kind of chart that you would expect from a very sick economy. And without a doubt, our economy is sick. Even the official government numbers paint a picture of an economy that is deeply troubled. Corporate profits have declined for two quarters in a row, U.S. exports plunged by 7.6 percent during the first quarter of 2015, U.S. GDP contracted by 0.7 percent during the first quarter, and factory orders have declined year over year for six months in a row.
If the stock market was connected to reality, it would be going down. But instead, it has just kept going up. As I discussed yesterday, this is a classic case of an irrational financial bubble. If I was writing an economic textbook and I wanted to include an example of what a run up to a major financial crash looks like, it would be hard to come up with anything more ideal than what we have watched unfold over the last six months. Just about every pattern that has popped up prior to previous stock markets crashes is happening again, and this is something that I have written about so much that many of my readers are sick of it.
And without a doubt, our financial markets are primed for a crash.
Only two times before has the S&P 500 been up by more than 200 percent over a six year time frame.
The first was in 1929, and the stock market subsequently crashed.
The second was in 2000, right before the dotcom bubble burst.
And by just about any measure that you can possibly imagine, stocks are massively overvalued right now.
For instance, just check out the chart posted below. It comes from Doug Short, and it shows that the ratio of corporate equity prices to GDP has only been higher one time since 1950. That was in 2000 just before the dotcom bubble burst…
Let’s take a look at another chart. This one comes from Phoenix Capital Research, and it shows that the CAPE ratio (cyclically adjusted price-to-earnings ratio) has rarely been higher. In fact, the only times that it has been higher we have seen stock market crashes immediately afterwards…
I think that compared with history, US stocks are overvalued. One way to assess this is by looking at the CAPE (cyclically adjusted P/E) ratio that I created with John Campbell, now at Harvard, 25 years ago. The ratio is defined as the real stock price (using the S&P Composite Stock Price Index deflated by the CPI) divided by the ten-year average of real earnings per share. We have found this ratio to be a good predictor of subsequent stock market returns, especially over the long run. The CAPE ratio has recently been around 27, which is quite high by US historical standards. The only other times it has been that high or higher were in 1929, 2000, and 2007—all moments before market crashes.
But the CAPE ratio is not the only metric I watch. In my book Irrational Exuberance (3rd Ed., Princeton 2015) I discuss several metrics that help judge what’s going on in the market. These include my stock market confidence indices. One of the indicators in that series is based on a single question that I have asked individual and institutional investors over the years along the lines of, “Do you think the stock market is overvalued, undervalued, or about right?” Lately, what I call “valuation confidence” captured by this question has been on a downward trend, and for individual investors recently reached its lowest point since the stock market peak in 2000.
Other valuation indicators produce similar results. This next chart is another one from Doug Short, and it shows the average of four of his favorite valuation indicators. As you can see, there is only one other time when stocks have been more overvalued than they are today according to the average of his four favorite indicators, and that was just before the stock market crashed when the dotcom bubble burst…
Another one of the things that indicates that a financial bubble is happening is the level of margin debt. Whenever margin debt has gone over 2.25% of GDP a stock market crash has always followed, and today it is far above that level. As you can see from the chart below, there have been three major peaks in margin debt in modern U.S. history. One was just before the dotcom bubble burst, one was just before the financial crisis of 2008, and the third is happening right now…
Something else that we would expect to see prior to a major financial crisis is a decoupling of high yield debt and stocks. This is something that happened just prior to the stock market crash of 2008, and it is happening again right now. The following chart comes from Zero Hedge, and it demonstrates this brilliantly…
Are you starting to get the picture?
And as I discussed yesterday, the smart money is beginning to pull their money out of stocks while they still can. According to USA Today, mutual fund investors have pulled more money out of stocks than they have put into stocks for 16 weeks in a row…
In a sign of stock market nervousness on Main Street, mutual fund investors have yanked more money out of U.S. stock funds than they put in for 16 straight weeks.
The last time domestic stock funds had positive net cash inflows was in the week ending Feb. 25, according to data from the Investment Company Institute, a mutual fund trade group.
In the week ended June 17, the most recent data available, mutual funds that invest in U.S. stocks suffered net outflows of $3.45 billion, according to the ICI.
Since late February, U.S. stock funds have suffered estimated outflows of nearly $55 billion. Those net withdrawals come despite the fact the benchmark Standard & Poor’s 500 hit a fresh record high of 2130.82 on May 21 and the Dow Jones industrial average notched a fresh record on May 19.
But it isn’t just stocks that are going to crash during the next financial crisis. Bonds are going to crash as well, but what I am concerned about most of all are derivatives.
Derivatives are going to play a starring role in the next major financial crisis. I cannot emphasize this enough. In fact, if you want to listen for just one word on the news that will let you know that things have started to really unravel, just listen for the word “derivatives”. This form of legalized gambling is going to crush “too big to fail” banks all over the planet during the next major financial downturn. The “too big to fail” banks in the U.S. alone have 278 trillion dollars of total exposure to derivatives, but they only have 9.8 trillion dollars in total assets. To say that they are being “reckless” is a massive understatement.
Legendary investor Jim Rogersrecently said that he believes that “we will see some kind of major, major problems in the world financial markets” within the next year or two.
Alex Jones recently released a video in which he explained that he recently received “two different calls” from “extremely prominent wealthy people” warning him about what is coming by the end of this year and asking him why he isn’t leaving the United States “before October”.
Bible prophecy expert Joel C. Rosenberg has posted an ominous message on his personal blog in which he warned that “something is coming” and that “we must be ready”…
I feel a tremendous sense of urgency about this column.
The United States is hurtling towards severe trouble, and the events of the past few months — andwhat may be coming over the next few months — grieves me a great deal.
Something is coming. I don’t know what. But we all must be ready in every possible way.
When I read what Rosenberg wrote, it struck me that it was precisely how I have been feeling too.
In my entire life, I have never had such an ominous feeling about any period of time as I have about the last six months of 2015. Like Rosenberg, I feel a “tremendous sense of urgency”, and I feel a great need to warn as many people as I can.
And it isn’t just a financial collapse that I am concerned about. In a previous article, I detailed seven key events that we are going to witness before the end of this September…
Late June/Early July – It is expected that this is when the U.S. Supreme Court will reveal their gay marriage decision. Most believe that the court will rule that gay marriage is a constitutional right in all 50 states. There are some that believe that this will be a major turning point for our nation.
July 15th to September 15th – A “realistic military training exercise” known as “Jade Helm” will be conducted by the U.S. Army. More than 1,000 members of the U.S. military will take part in this exercise. The list of states slated to be involved in these drills includes Texas, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, California, Mississippi and Florida.
July 28th – On May 28th, Reuters reported that countries in the European Union were being given a two month deadline to enact “bail-in” legislation. Any nation that does not have “bail-in” legislation in place by that time will face legal action from the European Commission. So why is the European Union in such a rush to get this done? Are the top dogs in the EU anticipating that another great financial crisis is about to erupt?
September 13th – This is Elul 29 on the Biblical calendar – the last day of the Shemitah year. Many are concerned about this date because we have seen giant stock market crashes on the last day of the previous two Shemitah cycles.
On September 17th, 2001 (which was Elul 29 on the Biblical calendar), we witnessed the greatest one day stock market crash in U.S. history up until that time. The Dow plummeted 684 points, and it was a record that held for exactly seven years until the end of the next Shemitah cycle.
On September 29th, 2008 (which was also Elul 29 on the Biblical calendar), the Dow fell by an astounding 777 points, which still today remains the greatest one day stock market crash of all time.
Now we are approaching the end of another Shemitah year. So will the stock market crash on September 13th, 2015? Well, no, because that day is a Sunday. So I guarantee that the stock market will not crash on that particular day. But as Jonathan Cahn has pointed out in his book on the Shemitah, sometimes stock market crashes happen just before the end of the Shemitah year and sometimes they happen within just a few weeks after the end of the Shemitah. So we are not just looking at one particular date.
September 15th – The 70th session of the UN General Assembly begins on this date. It is being reported that France plans to introduce a resolution which would give formal UN Security Council recognition to a Palestinian state. Up until now, the United States has always been the one blocking such a resolution, but Barack Obama is indicating that things may be much different this time around.
September 25th to September 27th – The United Nations is going to launch a brand new sustainable development agenda for the entire planet. Some have called this “Agenda 21 on steroids”. But this new agenda is not just about the environment. It also includes provisions regarding economics, agriculture, education and gender equality. On September 25th, the Pope will travel to New York to give a major speech kicking off the UN conference where this new agenda will be unveiled.
September 28th – This is the date for the last of the four blood moons that fall on Biblical festival dates during 2014 and 2015. This blood moon falls on the very first day of the Feast of Tabernacles, it will be a “supermoon”, and it will actually be visible in the city of Jerusalem. There are many that dismiss the blood moon phenomenon, but we have seen similar patterns before. For example, a similar pattern of eclipses happened just before and just after the destruction of the Jewish temple by the Romans in 70 AD.
Earlier today, I publicly announced that I was issuing a RED ALERT for the last six months of 2015 on the Alex Jones radio show. You can watch video of that interview right here. In this article (which is about three times as long as one of my normal articles) I have only shared a small fraction of the information that has led me to issue this red alert. But if you want to know more, and you are not afraid to really go down the rabbit hole, I would encourage you to check out a full two hour presentation that I did down in Dallas, Texas on the nightmarish years that are coming.
The period of relative stability that we have been enjoying is ending. What comes next is going to lead us into the worst period of time in modern American history. I wish that I was wrong about this.
But the goal is not to scare you. My wife and I live our lives with absolutely no fear, and that is my desire for all of my readers. There is hope in understanding what is happening and there is hope in getting prepared. Personally, my wife and I believe that the greatest chapters of our lives are ahead of us, and I hope that you have a similar outlook.
We need a generation of people that are willing to rise up and do great things even in the midst of all the chaos and darkness that is coming. It is when times are the darkest that the greatest heroes are needed.
So what will you choose to do when the next crisis comes?
Will you cower in fear, or will you rise up to meet the challenge?

French Foreign Minister: ‘We Have 500 Days to Avoid Climate Chaos’
(CNSNews.com) – The world has “500 days to avoid climate chaos,” French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said alongside Secretary of State John Kerry at the State Department on Tuesday.
“We have 500 days to avoid climate chaos,” Fabius said. “And I know that President Obama and John Kerry himself are committed on this subject and I’m sure that with them, with a lot of other friends, we shall be able to reach success in this very important matter.”
WHAT WAS THE UNITED NATION’S REALLY TRYING TO SAY? ASTEROID WARNING?
“Missing ” Malaysian Flight #370 most interesting passengers included about 25 of the worlds most advanced engineers..,.mostly from Freescale Semi-conductor of Austin, Texas. They had reportedly just invented the very latest gadgetry, specializing in electronic warfare and first strike nuclear disablement.
This valuable payload supposedly crashed, or vanished…or maybe whisked away to an undisclosed location. Perhaps it was an orchestrated multi country agreement to quarantine the best and brightest to work on the most critical weaponry this world has ever needed to insure our existence…
Maybe we should all be rooting for these most valuable engineers , rumored to be located in a remote Israeli underground area…feverishly working on an asteroid defense system . The 1996 movie Deep Impact should be viewed by all. Hollywood often preps the public for future events.
This September’s expected asteriod may be the real deal , it’s now starting to get sufficient journalistic and scientific confirmation to be a credible threat. Maybe there was a larger purpose to the sleight out of hand in regards to flight MH370. Governmental responsibility of predisposition assets in light of this possibility seems justified. Just how would citizens act if we knew we were at the end of the world as we know it?
