Record surge in bond yields as Italian debt crisis passes point of no return

Veteran investor Jim Rogers warned this morning that there is a “100% chance” the world is facing a financial crisis worse than 2008, as Italy was plunged into chaos on the back of soaring bond yields which now make the country’s huge debt unsustainable, mandating yet another EU bailout.

“We’re certainly going to have more crises coming out of Europe and America; the world is in trouble. The world has been spending staggering amounts of money that it doesn’t have for a few decades now, and it’s all coming home to roost,” Rogers, CEO and chairman Rogers Holdings told CNBC.

Rogers said the only solution was to allow countries to go bankrupt and start again, arguing that the continuing cycle of debt would only exacerbate the problem in the long term.

“Last time, America quadrupled its debt. The system is much more extended now, and America cannot quadruple its debt again. Greece cannot double its debt again. The next time around is going to be much worse,” Rogers said, adding that the chance of the Eurozone crisis causing another global financial meltdown was “100 per cent” and that the fallout would be worse than the 2008 collapse.

Rogers’ warning came as Italy was plunged into crisis and bond yields surged to unsustainable levels despite Prime Minister Berlusconi’s promise to resign, a move that was seen as a stabilizing factor.

“The situation in Italy has grown increasingly precarious with the yield on bonds passing the level which suggests the nation will need to be bailed out. At 10.50am the yield on the 10-year benchmark stood at 7.419%, a massive 0.7% jump on the day,” reports City Wire.

Bond yields are the return which the government offers investors who buy debt in the form of bonds. The yield is surging because investors globally are dumping Italian bonds, forcing the government to crank the interest rate higher and higher in order to attract buyers.

This record high in bond yields now means that Italy’s debt is unsustainable without the aid of yet another EU bailout, which will come with strings attached in the form of austerity measures that are almost guaranteed to provoke unrest on a similar scale to what we’ve already witnessed in Greece.

“Right now Italy has a debt to GDP ratio of 118 percent. If they keep expanding that debt it is going to result in a financial nightmare, but if they try to implement strict austerity measures it is also going to result in a financial nightmare. They are damned if they do and they are damned if they don’t,” explains Economic Collapse Blog.

In a scary and painfully frank interview a freaked out BBC interviewer is visibly shaken when market trader Alessio Rastani predicts that the “Market is Toast.” Apparently there is nothing Euro governments can do.
Update:
If you are on Facebook Alessio is commenting further. This may be one of the most important debates on Net at the moment.!

All over America today, desperate people are doing desperate things.  As the economy continues to crumble, the American people are starting to become very frustrated.  Millions have lost their homes and millions have lost their jobs.


As hopelessness and despair rise, an increasing number of Americans are turning to crime or are lashing out in unpredictable ways.  Many parts of America are rapidly turning into lawless hellholes.  In some of the areas that have been the hardest hit by the declining economy, police forces are being severely cut back and desperate criminals are being given a lot of freedom to roam.  In fact, in some major cities (such as Oakland, California), the police have announced that there are certain types of crime that they will not even respond to any more.  For a couple of decades, crime had been steadily declining in the United States, but now we are seeing very disturbing reports from all over the nation of desperate people doing desperate things as they scramble to survive or as they vent their frustrations.  If the examples that you are about to read are any indication, then America is headed down a very dark path.

Today, there are a whole lot of young people that feel as though all hope is gone.  Less than 30 percent of all teens had a job this summer.  Only 14 percent of Americans that are 28 or 29 years old are optimistic about their financial futures.

As Gerald Celente always says, when people lose everything that they have, they tend to lose it.

The very fabric of American society is starting to come apart, and it is frightening to even think about what is going to happen if the economy gets even worse.

The following are 20 examples of desperate people doing desperate things in America….

#1 As the price of gold has risen to unprecedented heights, thieves have taken notice.  This summer there has been an epidemic of gold robberies in the city of Los Angeles.  Store owners have felt forced to significantly beef us security.  In fact, store owners have added so much security that at this point “parts of downtown Los Angeles now look more like a militarized zone than a commercial corridor.”

But it is not just Los Angeles that is having a major problem with gold robberies.  The following is a brief excerpt from a recent article by Thomas Watkins….

In Oakland, police say dozens of women have had gold necklaces yanked from their necks on the street. More than 100 similar thefts have been reported in Los Angeles, a rash of robberies is taking place in St. Paul, Minn., and police in Phoenix say muggers chatted up high school girls then ripped their gold necklaces from them.

“We’ve never seen this,” said Oakland police Sgt. Holly Joshi.

#2 When the level of trust in society starts declining significantly, people start becoming very paranoid.  And when people feel constantly threatened, they tend to lash out in unusual ways.  For example, one man wearing a Dallas Cowboys jersey actually smuggled a taser into a recent game between the Cowboys and the New York Jets and started zapping people with it.

#3 When people become truly desperate, they also tend to become highly unpredictable.  Just consider what Justino Sanchez Diaz did recently during a family dinner….

Before the family gathered for dinner, Sanchez-Diaz soaked the walls of the dining room in gasoline and set cans of gas under the furniture. And when the 13 members of the family sat down to eat, the man came out with a can of kerosene and splashed it all over everyone, then set them on fire with a blowtorch.

#4 When desperation spreads throughout a society, you literally do not know who you can trust.  Right now identity theft in the United States is at epidemic levels and it is getting worse.  Every time you give someone your information now, there is a chance that your identity could be compromised.  Just consider the following example from the state of Texas….

If you have a mind sick enough to rip off desperately ill people, you probably think to yourself, “Cancer patients — hey, they may die soon, so what’ll they care?”

Houston police say Shantel Moore, 29, apparently had that kind of coldhearted and inhumane logic. The Stafford woman worked for Methodist Hospital in Houston, and cops say she stole identity information from cancer patients and used it to get tons of payday loan money.

#5 When thieves get desperate, they also tend to become very bold.  A reader named Mark left the following comment on one of my recent articles….

Some tweekers drove up last week looking for scrap metal and one was out of their truck and heading to the shop when I came out of the house. It used to be that strangers would not even cross our bridge or get out of their car wondering about what the dogs would do. Times are changing and not for the better.

#6 In some areas of the country, desperate people are not just searching for scrap metal.  As one reader shared recently, there are some parts of the U.S. that are literally being transformed into hellholes by hordes of desperate people….

Here, in the California desert, many vacant houses are being taken over. Fixtures are being ripped out and sold as scrap. Trench latrines are being dug in backyards and water is being pilfered from neighboring pools and hoses. While most of these folks are simply trying to keep a roof over their heads (while they keep their heads down), many are also setting up meth labs and in-door marijuana grows.

I can see the eventual day when the total breakdown of the economy and our society will drive thousands from the cities. A lot of those will be looking for ‘opportunities’.

As sad as it is, if you’re not one of the most unfortunate, it’s time to prepare a defense for your goods, family and self. You are going to be viewed as wealthy, no matter how poor you feel, by someone with nothing left to lose.

Do not rely on police or government authorities. We all saw how that went in New Orleans. Be ready as an individual family unit.

#7 Sadly, family units all over the country are breaking down.  The hearts of parents have become very cold.  Some people are so desperate that they are even trying to sell their own babies.  For example, one grandmother in Florida has been accused of trying to sell her newborn grandson for $75,000.

In another incident, a Vancouver, Washington woman has been charged with trying to sell her newborn baby in front of a Taco Bell.  She was only trying to get somewhere between $500 and $5000 for her baby.

#8 What some parents are doing to their children is absolutely horrifying.  If you have a weak stomach, you may not want to read this one.  In Louisiana recently, a 30-year-old man decapitated his 7-year-old son with a meat cleaver and left his head on the side of the road.  What made this crime even more shocking is the fact that his son was suffering from cerebral palsy and was confined to a wheelchair.  Reportedly the man had gotten “tired of taking care” of the young child.  The following is an excerpt from a Daily Mail report about this horrible crime….

A father has admitted to chopping his son’s head off with a meat cleaver and leaving it in the roadside outside his home so that the child’s mother would see it.

Keep in mind that the father and son had not had a fight.  Rather, the father had just “gotten tired” of taking care of the son.

#9 But it isn’t just parents that are becoming cold-hearted.  In Georgia recently, a 14-year-old teen stabbed his grandmother and his great-grandmother with a sword.  The 77-year-old great grandmother is dead, but it looks like the grandmother is going to be okay.

#10 All over the nation, there are reports of kids killing their parents.  A 21-year-old man in the Chicago area is accused of killing his father with a weed trimmer while his father was sleeping in bed.

#11 In one of the most famous cases of parental murder this year, a 17-year-old Florida teen killed his parents with a hammer, hid their bodies in the master bedroom, and then invited dozens of people over for a massive house party.

Did this kind of stuff happen in America 50 or 60 years ago?

#12 Not all desperate people are committing crimes of violence.  In fact, some desperate Americans are now purposely committing crimes just so that they can be arrested and receive free medical care.

Yes, you read that correctly.  There are 50 million Americans without health insurance and some of them are now purposely breaking the law so that they can go to prison and receive the care that they need.  Just consider the following example from an article in the Gaston Gazette….

James Richard Verone woke up June 9 with a sense of anticipation.

He took a shower.

Ironed his shirt.

Hailed a cab.

Then robbed a bank.

He wasn’t especially nervous. If anything, Verone said he was excited to finally execute his plan to gain access to free medical care.

#13 Millions of other desperate Americans are not lashing out or committing crimes at all.  Instead, they are just quietly suffering.  A reader named Richard recently left a comment in which he shared the desperation that he encountered during a recent trip to the beach….

I was at the beach today, it was almost dark. I watched as a well dressed lady in her 50′s walked onto the public access deck and laid down her things. She looked around to see if she was being observed, felt safe enough to proceed with her shameful task and then she pulled out several small plastic bags. Quickly she went through the trash can and began to remove anything of value, especially aluminum drink cans. That is when I made my way to her. At first she seemed embarrassed, but after I assured her that I sold scrap metal sometimes for extra money, she seemed relieved. She then released a pent up storm of sorrow and hurt as she spoke of her shame and humiliation.

She had recently lost her husband of 32 years and was all alone. She lived in a home she couldn’t afford and was about to lose. Attempts to sell brought only discouragement and despair. “Soon” she said, “I will be homeless.” She said the cans were her insurance, her only means of real survival, since she had already run out of unemployment money. When I tried to offer to help in some way, she suddenly shut me down and refused any help. I told her she wasn’t alone and prayed with her. It certainly made the beach a sad place to be. In the coming months I feel we will all see this same scene played out over and over.

#14 Other Americans have become so desperate that they have given up completely.  The following tragic example is from an article posted on MSN Money….

On the morning she realized her husband and son would learn the family was losing their house, Carlene Balderrama, 53, faxed a note to the mortgage company, then went to the basement and shot herself.

“I hope you’re more compassionate with my husband than you were with me,” she wrote in a suicide note left for the company.

#15 When people get desperate, violence tends to increase.  We are starting to see shocking examples of this all over the country.  For example, at least 42 people were hit by gunfire in New York City over the Labor Day weekend.

Another disturbing thing that we are seeing is the trend toward mob violence.  Previously, I have written about the epidemic of “flash mob” crimes that we are now seeing all over the nation.  When large groups of people start banding together to commit violent crimes, that is a very disturbing sign.

#16 When criminals get desperate, they don’t care who they attack and they will take everything from you that they can.  For example, three young thugs in the Bronx recently beat the living daylights out of a 64-year-old man and took his wallet, his cellphone and even his Bible.

#17 If you are attacked, are you going to call the police?  Are you sure that they can be trusted?  Even police officers are committing desperate acts these days.  Just check out what one police officer in Chicago is charged with doing….

A Chicago Police officer stole $50,000 from his ailing elderly father to pay off his bills and gambling debts and unsuccessfully attempted to swipe his dad’s retirement savings by impersonating him

#18 In the old days, thieves would usually only focus on items of high value.  But these days it seems like there is nothing that they will not steal.  There have been reports coming in from all over America of thieves stealing air conditioners, drain covers, hair extensions and even embalming fluid.

#19 When people get desperate, they will often do things that they never even imagined that they would be willing to do.  In Utah recently, an unemployed 28-year-old man starting running advertisements in which he actually offered to serve as “human prey” for hunters for the bargain price of $10,000.  For an additional $2,000, he said that he would be willing to allow hunters to “hunt” him down while running around naked.

#20 When criminals become desperate, they often lose all common sense.  In the San Diego area recently, one desperate thief actually tried to rob a 7-11 convenience store while dressed in a Gumby costume.  Apparently the clerk thought it was a prank, so the thief tried to pull a weapon but was unable to do so because the costume was too awkward.  Police are still searching for the suspect, who is described as being very tall, very green and very thin.

America is quickly becoming a lawless place.  Yes, authorities in many areas will attempt to crack down, but what are they going to do when millions of people all start doing desperate things all at once?

A reader identified as El Pollo de Oro recently left a comment in which he summed up the direction that he thinks this country is headed….

The Banana Republic of America, the Third World cesspool that used to be the United States, is a very violent place, but the violence is going to get much, much worse. If the BRA is this dangerous and unstable now, what is it going to be like when our terrible economy becomes even worse and unemployment becomes even higher? It won’t be pretty. As Gerald Celente says, get ready for a lot of violence. We’ll continue to see acts of thuggery for the sake of thuggery (flash mobs), but most of the violence will be profit-motivated: drug violence (hola Sinaloa Cartel, hola Los Zeta y la Familia Michoacana), kidnapping, carjacking, home invasions, armed robbery in broad daylight. Today’s unemployed IT worker is tomorrow’s kidnapper; today’s unemployed construction worker is tomorrow’s drug trafficker or carjacker. The former USA is now a Third World hellhole, and the BRA will have all the violence, poverty, squalor and crime that Third World hellholes are known for.

America used to be the envy of the world.

Now, much of the rest of the world is watching our decline in horror.

When a complete economic collapse finally occurs, what is this country going to look like?  Will it be an all-out struggle for survival, or will we be able to handle ourselves fairly well like we did during the Great Depression?

One thing is for sure, this nation is headed in the wrong direction.

So what is the solution to our problems?

One group in Massachusetts thinks that they know what the problem is.  Amazingly, they are actually pushing really hard to have the Pledge of Allegiance permanently banned from all public school classrooms in the state.

Apparently the group believes that the Pledge of Allegiance has “no educational value” and that it places “unnecessary pressure” on kids.

This is yet another example of how divided our country has become.  We are constantly fighting over really stupid stuff, and meanwhile our nation is rapidly going down the toilet.

Look, our economy is going to get even worse and tens of millions of hurting Americans are going to become even more frustrated.

Something desperately needs to be done to turn this country around.

 

Are you ready for “The United States Of Europe”?  The integration of Europe is about to go to another level.  As the European debt crisis deepens, there are cries all over the EU for full economic integration in Europe.  On Wednesday, French President Nicolas Sarkozy and German Chancellor Angela Merkel sent a letter to European Council President Herman Van Rompuy which stated that they want a new “economic government” for Europe to be formed.  According to the letter, Sarkozy and Merkel want the leaders of the eurozone countries to “elect” a president for the new “economic government”.  The idea would be that the president would hold twice-yearly summits to address the debt problems that Europe is facing right now.  But many pro-EU critics are already howling that Sarkozy and Merkel have not gone nearly far enough.  A whole lot of “experts” in Europe are proclaiming that without full economic integration and the creation of “eurobonds”, Europe is doomed.  Jennifer McKeown, an economist for Capital Economics, put it this way when asked what would happen if eurobonds are not created fairly soon: “The likely outcome is the eurozone ceases to exist”.

This is often how huge changes occur in our world today.  First a huge problem is created, then there is a negative reaction and then a solution is presented to us.  Right now in Europe, the problem is the sovereign debt crisis.  We are being told that the only way that the eurozone can survive is if all of the countries agree to much deeper economic integration.

In an article for Seeking Alpha, Cliff Wachtel broke down the choices facing the people of Europe in the following manner….

  • The continued existence of the EZ in its current form in exchange for vastly limited sovereignty. In particular, with limited financial autonomy, with some kind of centralized budget approval and or spending veto power over individual states.
  • Continued full sovereignty in exchange for a dissolved or radically altered EZ, probably one contracted down to member states with similar needs and reliable fiscal management.

Some choice, eh?

While some are applauding the possibility of increased integration in the eurozone, others are warning about the potential consequences.

For example, a Daily Mail article entitled “Rise of the Fourth Reich, how Germany is using the financial crisis to conquer Europe” contained the following assessment of what deeper economic integration for Europe would mean….

This would entail a loss of sovereignty not seen in those countries since many were under the jackboot of the Third Reich 70 years ago.

For be in no doubt what fiscal union means: it is one economic policy, one taxation system, one social security system, one debt, one economy, one finance minister. And all of the above would be German.

Nigel Farage was also deeply critical of the new proposal by Sarkozy and Merkel….

Bit by bit, eurozone members are losing their sovereignty as the European superstate is created. Nothing in these proposals will calm the markets. I am also prepared to bet that the European political elite will not ask the permission of their peoples via a referendum to make this happen.

But Sarkozy and Merkel seem unconcerned about the critics.  In fact, they have announced plans to have a common corporate tax rate by 2013 and to coordinate work on their national budgets.

So if the leadership of the German and French governments both want deeper economic integration for Europe, will anyone else in the eurozone be strong enough to resist it?

Probably not.

EU Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso is already calling the proposals put forth by Sarkozy and Merkel “an important political contribution by the leaders of the two largest euro area economies to this debate and the on-going work.

Countries such as Greece, Portugal, Italy and Spain are already deeply financially dependent on Germany.  Either they will have to leave the eurozone (which would be a financial disaster for them) or they will have to go along with what Germany and France want.

But economic integration in Europe certainly will not be easy.  There is still a lot of resistance in the EU to the idea of a “United States of Europe”.  Many in the northern countries are very opposed to further economic integration with the financially irresponsible nations of southern Europe.

Craig Alexander, the chief economist at Toronto-Dominion Bank, recently made the following statement regarding the problems of trying to more fully integrate Europe.

“The problem is the political system in Europe can’t cope with the jump from the current system to a fiscal union in one go.”

So it will certainly be very interesting to see what happens.  There still is a very real chance that the EU could break up and the euro could implode.  Absolutely nothing is set in stone right now.

But the leaders of the EU are going to do whatever they can to keep it together.  They truly believe that a fully united Europe under the banner of the EU is what is best for the continent.

In the end, however, the real goal is to unite the entire world.  Regional governments such as the EU are seen as an intermediate step toward a truly global government.  As I have written about previously, the globalists hope one day to have a truly global economy that uses a new global currency.

In a recent opinion piece, former EU bigwig Javier Solana made the following statement….

Truly effective global governance is the strategic horizon that humanity must pursue today with all its energy.

It sounds difficult to achieve, and so it will be. But it has nothing to do with pessimism. The challenge of governing global risks is nothing less than the challenge of preventing the “end of history” – not as the placid apotheosis of liberal democracy’s global victory, but as the worst collective failure we can imagine.

People like Solana truly believe that if we can eventually unite the entire world that it will bring in a new era of peace and prosperity.

Many of them believe that if they can get the world to form 10 or 12 “regional unions” first, eventually they will be able to get all of those regional unions to form one giant global superstate.

Globalists such as Solana are convinced that they are doing this for the good of mankind.  They really believe that war and poverty can be wiped out if we are all under one giant government.

But as we have seen in the past, the larger the governments get, the worse the tyranny tends to become.  Setting up a “one world government” may seem like a good idea to some people, but the truth is that it would set the stage for greater oppression than we have ever seen before.

Those that love liberty and freedom should be 100% opposed to a “United States of Europe” and they should definitely be 100% opposed to a “one world government”.

“Let us not look back in anger, nor forward in fear, but around us in awareness.” – James Thurber

by Nicholas West and Zen Gardner

Activist Post and Before It’s News

The Powers-That-Be seem to be ramping-up efforts to drive a stake right into America’s heart(land).  Natural disasters are on the rise, and an increasing amount of evidence is leading to the conclusion that these natural disasters might not be completely natural.

Some already have speculated that we are entering a time of weather and earthquake wars, as the incidence of mega disasters has risen across the world.  Is government experimentation simply going awry, or is it being orchestrated on purpose? Are they hiding behind or even amplifying current natural earth changes such as the strong solar cycle and the on-going magnetic pole shift to accomplish some furtive plot?

The hidden hand has always cloaked itself using a wide array of techniques to conceal its divide-and-conquer agenda.  By owning the ultimate weapon — the very climate upon which we all depend — entire regions can now be put under a full spectrum of remote control already served up through climate change, economic instability,  and the military-surveillance complex brought in under the false threat of terrorism.

Let’s first look at the evidence for the manipulation of natural disasters and the proposed government solutions, then move to the massive preparation being undertaken by FEMA indicating that something big is on the way for the area of The New Madrid Fault as indicated by the current cluster of disasters in the region.  We’ll then finish with the solutions at our disposal to thwart the efforts of the elite cabal of gangsters that seeks control over humanity.

The Evidence of a Plan

Predictive Programming — This is where the groundwork is laid for directing people toward an imagined future.  Through books, video games, movies, propaganda placement, and education, the passive receiving of orchestrated information can literally change the future.  Elites have always been obsessed with mind control . . . and the best form is that which is the least obvious.  The unaware are manipulated and controlled without a single shot being fired, or a single piece of legislation written.  However, once one becomes attuned to their methods, it becomes incredibly obvious.  Besides the constant bombardment of mega-disaster and end of the world scenarios, one prime current example is geoengineering (aka chemtrails).  This chemical spraying has now wormed into movies and public places as an example for children to embrace the new normal of planes laying down a tic-tac-toe murky gloom across our skies.

HAARP –The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program based in Gakona Alaska is under constant scrutiny, as researchers track its relationship to weather modification and earthquake activity.  This facility and its substations scattered throughout the U.S. have been tracked by intrepid weather researcher Dutchsinse who has made some startlingly accurate predictions based on the tell-tale radar flares of these facilities, already linked to earthquakes in the area of the New Madrid seismic zone.  Subsequent flooding is so severe and unprecedented that locals are even saying it seems like the whole area is sinking.

It is thought this weather manipulating technology is being tested and fine-tuned for worldwide use, as other such antenna arrays are located in Norway (EISCAT), Australia (Exmouth), and several other countries, as well as via space-based facilities.  Benjamin Fulford is among those who claim to have spoken to insiders about specific threats made to Japan prior its 9.0 event.  Video showing distinct vibrational patterns, as well as purported “punch holes” have been cited as evidence.  Increased HAARP activity seems to correspond and, curiously, the HAARP site has been taken down. While the evidence that exists is somewhat tangential, HAARP’s stated capabilities are indeed ground penetrating.

https://i1.wp.com/www.uaff.info/haarp_chemtrails.jpg

Geoengineering — This might be the most obvious part of the elite plan for global control.  Books like Ecoscience by Obama’s science czar, John Holdren; the military plans for Owning The Weather by 2025 ; and the recent Royal Society proclamations all point to a relatively small group of selected sociopaths who would love to play God with our climate, backed by ultra-elite front organizations such as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. As described above, there already has been a conditioning program for people to accept seeing planes spray across the skies.  Now, the evidence is in: it is a chemical cocktail which contains dangerous levels of toxic particulates such as barium and aluminum.  Certainly Monsanto seems to have accepted this reality, as they were quick to develop an aluminum resistant gene to insert into their GM crops. The recent mega-twister outbreak, which has led scientists to conduct a disaster autopsy, might also point to evidence of weather modification experiments that are facilitated by the presence of heavy metals in chemtrails that intensify the effect of manipulative EMFs.

The Ground Wave Emergency Network

Electromagnetic Control — It is known the toxic soup of electo-magnetic waves already in place through power lines, cell towers, WiFi, radio, television and a host of other broadcasting devices has a seriously deleterious effect on human health and mental well being. HAARP and its various localized outposts and GWEN towers (Ground Wave Emergency Network) has the known capability to affect human thought.

Another even more sinister capability using other inaudible ELF and UHF (extra low and ultra high frequency) electromagnetic signals is also in place since the 1990′s. This sinister program nicknamed the “sounds of silence” operates within the  frequencies the brain operates on, and the the PTBs have been piggy-backing inaudible, subliminal programming to manipulate humanity. No wonder so many are entranced by the media and the country appears to be so upset, confused, fearful and divided.

https://i2.wp.com/www.playasonly.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/HAARP1.png

The  Department of Defense even tested this Silent Sound Spread Spectrum (SSSS) technology during the first Iraq war, causing unwary battle-tested Iraqi soldiers to act like submissive children running to American troops for protection. It’s also in use in the private sector and goes by the name of Silent Subliminal Presentation System and is used as an advanced marketing technique, among other things. It is believed this technology is one of the PTBs main tools being used for the subjugation of the American people.

Big Oil and Gas Fracking — Since September of 2010, nearly 800 earthquakes rattled Arkansas and the New Madrid Fault Line. The entire state only experienced 38 quakes in 2009.  The New Madrid Zone is believed to be a part of a complex of faults that extends down the Mississippi Valley into The Gulf of Mexico.  In fact, the oil volcano that was unleashed by the BP disaster last year is thought to be at the southern tip of this volatile area.  Not only are oil and gas being extracted from beneath this zone at enormous rates, but an extraction process called fracking is further exacerbating seismic activity in the region and might even trigger a mega-quake.  Hydraulic fracturing (fracking) pumps water and chemicals  into the ground at a pressurized rate exceeding what the bedrock can  withstand, resulting in a microquake that produces rock fractures.  A  close look at Arkansas’ history of earthquakes and drilling reveals a  shockingly noticeable surge in quake frequency following advanced  drilling. Fracking is now a global technique for finding natural gas.

Animal Die-offs — Perhaps the most puzzling, and one of the most alarming of unnatural phenomena recently has been the sudden and unexplained animal deaths.  Many factors could be at play, but the increasingly apparent weather modification effort by the powers-that-be seems to be the primary suspect.  Concentrated radio beams, both HAARP and local-based, have been detected in the very regions of these die-offs.  The deliberate war on nature is also displayed by GM poisoning that is now leading bees to seal off parts of their hives as a defense mechanism.

Government Preparation

So, there are clearly elitists who wish to control populations en masse, and they are fully aware that much of their scientific experimentation with nature could have unintended consequences.  For the eventuality of such chaos, they seem to be preparing to restore order with a rather harsh approach.

Back in 2009 Shepard Ambellas brought to light a mass grave site in Phoenix, Arizona, replete with plastic coffins and FEMA camp complexes. This has now been confirmed by many independent researchers, and is a theory endorsed by ex-governor and Conspiracy Theory host, Jesse Ventura, who was shocked to learn that this isn’t a theory at all; there really is a continuity of government agenda with 10 proposed FEMA regions to be controlled by selected governors.  In fact, this police state agenda is so real that outside pressure led to the episode being pulled after release, and even remotely erased from the DVRs of TiVo, Comcast, DirectTV and AT&T customers.   Nothing to hide?  No plans?  Right.

Doubters, or those who might feel comforted by the government’s version of disaster preparation, would do well to remember FEMA’s intervention following Hurricane Katrina and how horrendously that worked out for tens of thousands holed up in their stadium concentration camp where children weren’t even immune from rapes and beatings.  By connecting the following dots, one should see that whether or not the chaos is deliberate, accidental, or even natural, one should think twice before entering the FEMA version of Club Med when societal collapse arrives.

–NLE 2011 — FEMA’s largest National Level Exercise in history has commenced. It reportedly involves over 1 million people.  The states that are involved are those that already have experienced record tornado outbreaks, horrendous flooding, and consistent earthquake tremors.  Now, the Army Corps of Engineers has detonated 250 tons of TNT in this fault zone to so-called mitigate flooding .  Residents are now reporting that decontamination units have been set up as part of this “exercise”.

–FEMA has placed a rush order of $1 billion in dehydrated food.
Homeland Security has ordered expedited printing of over 350,000 national emergency detainee handbooks.

-The U.S. Navy released images of the future geography of America . . . divided nearly down the middle.

As we consider the events that have taken place in this region over the recent past, there clearly is something major going on.  Since Katrina we have witnessed dead birds and fish, increased earthquakes, The BP Disaster, and the worst disaster since Katrina: the mega-tornado outbreak.

Regardless of the theories (and evidence) showing signs of an attempt to orchestrate a divide-and-conquer strategy for America, we would do well to prepare ourselves for an increasing number of these disasters, as well as to prepare for the official response.

Solutions: It all comes down to self-sufficiency

Once we are alert to the machinations of the elite overlords, we can then devise our own plans for preparation and eliminate the fear that they require for our subservience.  The system needs dependence from the population; we must, therefore, do all we can to reduce our dependence and render our would-be controllers impotent.  Here are the 4 key areas where we can help ourselves, our families, and our neighbors break free from the elite stranglehold:

Economy

Of all the scams, the worldwide banking system is one of the most  mind-boggling. Once you “buy into it” you’re already ensnared, and it’s either eat, or be eaten. That’s their design.  Never mind the entire false premise of fiat money and the  debt system — vast amounts of this illusory “currency” get shifted  every micro-second in a wave of deceit and piracy.  If we are to break free of our engineered financial shackles we must develop and promote competing currencies and barter systems.  They are already trying to imprison people for doing just that, which is a sure sign that it is an Achilles heel.  They can’t lock up everyone, so get started now developing your own private currency and discussing alternatives to The Federal Reserve fiat system.

Food and Water

This is the second main method of control the world over.  Globalists use the IMF to literally use food as a weapon, which is exactly what was proposed in State Department Memorandum 200 from 1974 where Henry Kissinger addresses much of what we see happening across the globe in 2011.  Food inflation already has begun in earnest, while environmental destruction is impacting food and water quality planet-wide.  By all means begin by filtering your water .  And it’s never too late to learn off-the-grid methods for food production such as aquaponics and permaculture.  If you find that food growing is simply not possible, then learn where your local growers are so that you can support the strength of the community that can help you best in times of crisis.

Shelter and Skills

Much has been made of the massive rise in doomsday bunker purchases, as well as purchases to enter self-sustaining underground communities.  This path is certainly not for everyone, as the most serious disasters could last for an indeterminate length of time.  Perhaps a better path is to stay mobile, rather than fixed.  It is sad that many people have lost their permanent homes during the financial collapse; however, for those in such a position you might just be best suited toward survival.  The ability to pick up and go has proven to be important as the fallout from the Fukushima disaster has circled the globe.  There is always someplace safe; it is important to identify where that is and be prepared to move when necessary.  Rather than “running for one’s life” as a cowardly act, this should be viewed as running toward better opportunities when presented with adversity beyond one’s control.  All true survivalism depends on one’s ability to physically adapt, then to have the mental fortitude to make the best from unfortunate circumstances.  Some key areas of focus are radiation protection, plug-in scalar technology, orgonite and EMP protection.  With recent news from NASA that Comet Elenin is affecting Earth , it would be wise to also move to higher ground if possible.

Community

We saved the best survival tactic for last.  Ironically, the pooling of resources is the single most effective and inexpensive strategy to ensure your own independence.  Disaster preparation can seem like an overwhelming task to take on single-handedly — much better to befriend people who are already skilled (and well-stocked) in certain areas.  Every community already has people well-trained in mechanics, craftsmanship, food production, and tactical weapons.  Rather than try the nearly impossible task of gaining skills in all of these areas, offer your current skills, property, or ideas to other key people and strategize about what-if scenarios.  Just such a project has begun in New Hampshire.  The Free State project is a recruitment for liberty-loving people to move to New Hampshire.  You can read their statement of intent to decide if this might be the path for you.  This is a brilliant plan for people to connect with other like-minded individuals and carry out a shared goal.  This erases the feeling of being alone, which lead so many people to inaction as they see their current neighbors turn a blind-eye to the problems we have outlined above.

We all sincerely hope that we don’t have to encounter a collapse scenario, but simple wishful thinking might not be enough; best to balance continued optimism with sound preparation.

Mr. X has discovered a method of using water to fill up a gas tank and fuel a vehicle. After a series of ten unsuccessful murder attempts against him, he is ready to release full details of the technology to the public on the “Late Night in the Midlands” radio show.

by Hank Mills with Sterling D. Allan
Pure Energy Systems News

Glenn Canady from Project.Nsearch has posted a video message to Youtube. In the video, he announces that an inventor (Mister X) will be appearing on the “Late Night in the Midlands” radio show this coming Wednesday 10PM EST to reveal all the details about his water fuel technology. Mister X says he has survived ten murder attempts and is ready to reveal his technology to the world. He claims that this technology would allow vehicles to be fueled by water alone. A small amount (2%) of fuel may be added to prevent corrosion of certain engine parts.

As usual, you can expect that we will be doing a full report of his show, and we will be doing our best to provide a clear set of instructions resulting from his disclosure.

The inventor claims that he has driven 8500 miles in his Dodge truck on water alone! He also claims to have converted his car to run on water. On the program, the inventor will also describe how this technology can be used to produce electrical power for a home. If all of these claims are accurate, this technology could solve the energy crisis. It could produce motive power for vehicles and electrical power for homes. The world’s dependence on fossil fuels could quickly end. 

He said that despite an offer from an energy company to buy out his technology for one billion dollars, he refuses to allow the technology to be shelved. He is very religious and feels God has told him to make sure this technology gets put to use. 

These claims seem very similar to those of Frederick (Freddy) Wells who’s “Hydrogen Hog” technology has been featured at PESWiki. We have a shortcut domain to that page: http://FreddysCell.com, the official location for his open source information, which has been very difficult to get from him due to his right-brained way of inventing and researching. Though he said he wanted to share his instructions openly, getting those instructions clearly has still evaded anyone, this many months later. We don’t know of any successful replications yet. Like Mister X, Freddy also claims to have powered a Dodge truck with his technology. In August of 2010, he claimed to have driven a Dodge truck 3,000 miles on just water; then later he claims to have converted another Dodge truck to run in similar manner. In addition, Freddy claims suppression attempts have been made against him. Frederick posted a video to YouTube apparently showing his truck running on water alone.

Maybe Mister X is Freddy, but I kind of doubt it since Freddy is presently in the middle of commercializing a less revolutionary version of his system – for more modest mileage improvement – aiming for 250,000 units to begin arriving in the marketplace as soon as mid June. 

It would be good if Mister X is a different person and is able to clearly communicate his plans to those who are able to replicate. The more, the merrier. This would give Freddy the marketing opening to come out with his full system sooner than he had planned

From what we can gather, Freddy’s technology is very similar to that of Stanley Meyer. It worked by producing ionized Hydroxy or HHO gas onboard from a special electrolysis cell. Some theorize that zero point energy shows up at that point, and this is where the added energy comes from that is able to propel the vehicle down the road. This gas is injected under pressure into the fuel rail of the engine. No fuel was present.

Mister X’s technology is described as one in which you can fill your gas tank with water, and a small amount of gasoline (2%, to keep things lubricated). Hopefully Mister X will also address the theoretical mechanism of converting the water to fuel and harvesting environmental energy in the process.

In the past, there have been claims of spark plugs that could ignite water to power an internal combustion engine. Perhaps Mr. X has developed such a technology. It could simplify the setup by removing the electrolysis cell and allow the gas tank to carry the water fuel instead of separate tanks being required. The cost of such a setup would probably be much less than one involving an electrolysis cell. 

Glenn Canady has requested the alternative media make the news of this upcoming revelation go viral. He urges everyone to spread the word about this radio program, listen in, and have questions ready. They are going to try and keep Mister X on the line for as long as possible.

You can listen to the show by connecting to the live stream at the following two sites.

Project.Nsearch or Late Night in the Midlands

The interview with Mr. X will start at 10PM EST on May 4th.

A story on the Nsearch website about the upcoming revelation can be found here.

Perhaps one of the more important spin-off results of this information being revealed will be the people of the world realizing that we never needed an economy based on oil. This technology has been around for a very long time, but has been suppressed over and over again. 

When people start fueling their cars with water, will they start demanding an investigation of who was behind the suppression of the technology or what companies were involved. (At least the alternative media still has such curiosity; as the mainstream media just serves as lapdogs for the corrupt powers that be)

Will they demand that the oil companies, certain politicians, and members of the “powers that be” be held criminally liable for the hundreds of millions of deaths over the past hundred years that are a result of the oil based economy? 

Will the politicians that are unwilling to pursue prosecution of those involved in the suppression of this technology, be voted out of office?

Only time will tell! 

For right now, let’s start by spreading the word about this upcoming interview!  With 23,000+ views as of the time of this posting, which was put up two days ago, it’s already doing well.

Here is the video announcing the interview.

Here is a lecture by Freethinker and globe trotter Steven Machat. 

Steven Machat

At 16 Steven’s father, Marty Machat, one of the pioneering entertainment lawyers, introduced him to Frank Sinatra. The uber-cool Sinatra, had power, style, money and chicks! Steven wanted in. Following Sinatra’s advice, Steven went to Miami and not southern California to get his accounting degree, and on from there to Vanderbilt in Nashville Tennessee to attain his law degree. He thought he was ready for the world.

Together Machat and Machat, father and son, set up their entertainment law firm. Their specialty was the deal and then the management of the deal. On their roster were Genesis, Phil Collins, Peter Gabriel, The Blizzard of Oz featuring Ozzy Osbourne, Leonard Cohen, Phil Spector, Gamble-Huff and their Philadelphia International record label, Don Arden and his Jet Records, to name a few. One of Steven’s first deals made was the agreements with CBS Records for ELO. At that time it was the largest record deal ever. Machat and Machat represented both the legal and business affairs of Don Arden’s Jet Records, who had ELO. Shortly after, ELO sold 30 million records of the double disc Out of the Blue.

As he always has, Steven continues to push boundaries in his personal quest to connect with people, and to uncover the essential truths that we have hidden from ourselves. He has touched many lives in his quest to understand human nature, a trait that has always seen him side with musicians and entrepreneurs, rather than corporately backed businesses with no human interest. Steven is a connector, seeking truth and understanding in the toughest environment. He’s fearless, and charming. After meeting Steven Machat, most people walk away with their equilibrium shaking. To use the word controversial to describe him wouldn’t do him justice.

On Feb 25th, 2011, Steven gave a lecture at East London University on what he calls his ‘Consciousness Manifesto’.

ARTICLE from National Inflation Association:

March 11, 2011

U.S. Dollar Collapse Could Occur at Any Time

China this morning reported 4.9% price inflation for the month of February, exceeding analyst expectations of 4.8%. With China now mimicking the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and taking steps to artificially manipulate their consumer price index (CPI) numbers as low as possible, it is likely that real price inflation in China is now closer to 10%. China was at least smart enough to raise interest rates last month by 25 basis points to 6.06%, while the Federal Reserve continues to leave interest rates near zero with there being absolutely no talk of the Federal Reserve ever raising interest rates again. China will be successful at containing inflation, as U.S. inflation spirals out of control and becomes the greatest economic crisis in American history.

China this week reported a $7.3 billion trade deficit for the month of February, its largest trade deficit in seven years, which surprised many global economists. NIA believes China’s trade deficit is temporary and that China will quickly return to having a trade surplus. The Federal Reserve’s QE2 along with China’s destructive monetary policies, which artificially devalue the yuan, have led to a massive rise in China’s raw material costs this year. NIA believes that in the upcoming months, Chinese manufacturers will raise the prices of their products that get exported to the U.S., to counteract rising commodity prices. With most products used by Americans today having been manufactured in China, this will mean Americans will soon see massive price inflation in just about all consumer goods they use. NIA projects that by the end of 2011, we will begin to see the U.S. CPI increase by 4.9% or higher on a year-over-year basis, with real U.S. pric e inflation rising north of 10%.

The mainstream media is proclaiming that China’s trade deficit will silence calls for the Chinese to allow their currency to strengthen against the U.S. dollar. The fact is, China’s government has for long been making the major mistake of printing too many yuan in order to artificially prop up the U.S. dollar. Their fear was, if the U.S. dollar was allowed to decline too rapidly, prices of Chinese goods would rise in terms of U.S. dollars and Americans would no longer afford to import them.

The truth is, if China allowed the yuan to strengthen, the Chinese would have enjoyed a much higher standard of living. Sure, prices would rise in dollars and Americans would import less, but the Chinese would have the ability to consume more of their own products. Now, as a result of China expanding its own money supply in order to keep the yuan pegged to the U.S. dollar, Americans will be forced to pay a much higher price for Chinese goods anyway. The same higher prices Americans were going to pay as a result of exchange rate appreciation, Americans will now pay as a result of inflation. For the Chinese, the exchange rate appreciation route would have been a much better route to take than the inflation route, because now the Chinese will also be forced to pay higher prices. In the very short-term, China might actually suffer more than the U.S. because they lack the social safety nets that have been implemented here in America.

The U.S. government has been successful at temporarily paying off Americans into not rioting in the streets like in Arab nations. It was just announced a few days ago that the number of Americans on food stamps in the month of December of 2010 was a record 44,082,324, up 13.1% from one year earlier and 1.1% from one month earlier. That is more than 14% of the total U.S. population! Combined with President Obama extending unemployment benefits up to 99 weeks, American citizens are too busy and distracted playing with their iPad 2s and gossiping on Twitter about Charlie Sheen, to have any time to protest in Washington, DC.

NIA believes the U.S. government’s entitlement spending is currently having the unintended consequence of making Americans dependent on government. It is like when you take wild animals into captivity and you feed them, teach them to do tricks and take care of them for a period of many years; if you just dump them one day back into the wild, it will be very difficult for them to survive. Americans who have become dependent on unemployment checks and food stamps will likely soon abruptly find out that they must begin to fend for themselves without any help from the government. The result will be many Americans turning into wild animals and becoming so desperate that they will have to rob and burglarize their fellow neighbors who were smart enough to prepare, or else they will risk starving to death.

As a result of QE2, the Federal Reserve is now buying 70% of U.S. treasuries, up from previously only buying 10% of treasury bonds. Foreign central banks are now buying just 30% of U.S. treasuries, compared to previously buying 50% of treasury bonds. The U.S. budget deficit in the month of February reached a record $222.5 billion or $2.67 trillion on an annualized basis. With the Federal Reserve now monetizing our debt in full swing, a complete and total loss of confidence in the U.S. dollar could be imminent.

Just like how nobody in the mainstream media was calling for the collapse of Egypt’s government a few months ago, almost nobody in the media believes a collapse of the U.S. dollar could possibly take place anytime soon. NIA members are educated enough to see that the writing is on the wall. The Federal Reserve can deny all it wants that the U.S. is experiencing inflation, but with the cost to print a single U.S. dollar paper note rising by 50% since 2008, massive inflation is here right under Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke’s nose. Every day that goes by, China is quietly implementing more and more steps that expand the yuan’s use in cross border trade, in order to position the yuan as the world’s next reserve currency.

So few Americans are presently preparing for hyperinflation that if hyperinflation broke out today, approximately 90% of Americans won’t have the means to put food on the table or put fuel in their automobiles. During the upcoming hyperinflationary crisis, food stamps will no longer have any value at all and all U.S. entitlement programs will come to a complete halt. Americans will take to the streets like the world has never seen before.

The biggest question NIA has today is, will the U.S. government resort to firing at its own citizens, if major riots take place in Washington, DC. On Thursday, police in Saudi Arabia shot and wounded three protesters. The price of oil rose by a few dollars per barrel as soon as this news hit the wire, which shows just how nervous the world’s financial markets have become in recent weeks. The fact that the Dow Jones has declined significantly in recent days, in our opinion means that the odds of QE3 being launched as soon as QE2 is over, are now much higher than they were several weeks ago.

The other big question NIA has today is, if in the unlikely event there is no QE3, who will fill in for the artificial buying demand currently coming from the Federal Reserve. After all, with no QE3, the Federal Reserve will go from buying 70% of treasury bonds to being a seller of U.S. treasuries. NIA is 100% sure that foreign central banks aren’t itching to jump back in to fill the hole. While in the past, the private sector may have picked up the slack, we believe individual investors will now be more reluctant to jump into government bonds, especially with bond king Bill Gross reducing the government bond holdings in his Pimco Total Return Fund down to zero. The bottom line is, no QE3 means interest rates will fly sky high and destroy the phony so-called “economic recovery”.

From April to August of 2010, the last time the Federal Reserve allowed its balance sheet to shrink, the Dow Jones fell by over 1,000 points. If Bernanke doesn’t soon begin to leak out the strong likelihood of QE3, we could see the stock market decline by 1,000 points or more, which will force Bernanke into launching QE3. If we see a major sell off in stocks, NIA doesn’t necessarily think that precious metals prices will follow. In fact, we could see gold and silver rise along with the Dow Jones falling. NIA projects the Dow Jones to gold ratio to decline to 6.5 in 2011. This means even if the Dow Jones fell to below 11,000, we still believe gold is likely to rise to around $1,600 to $1,700 per ounce this year, with silver soaring to around $42 to $44 per ounce. NIA believes the worst decision any American can make is to sell their gold and silver and go long U.S. dollars, hoping to buy their precious metals back at a lower price in the future.

Analysis of mood factors for U.S. society indicate an extreme event is likely mid month.  Research in sustainability combines ancient tradition with the tools of modern science.

It’s interesting to note that there has been ALOT of talk concerning certain dates mid-march regarding possible pole shifts, shutdown of US government, mass oil price increases, dollar collapse, huge earthquake along the New Madrid fault line, massive volcanic eruptions etc al, so there is definitely a feeling af angst in the air.

Keep your eyes opened and be prepared.

RED ALERT email between Metal Experts – about Confiscation of Gold and Silver by the U.S. Government – Potentially this year for a New World Currency – from Multiple High Inside Sources.

Roger Wiegand (http://webeatthestreet.com/) sent out a RED ALERT email to other metal experts/analysis, due to information from multiple high level inside sources of his, of the potential of confiscation of gold and silver from the American Public, this year for a new world currency.  

 This is the email sent out – without any changes and exact!

RED ALERT
 
Editor: There is a plan to use the IMF (AKA US Treasury and Wall Street) to be the front man for the new world order and one currency. We also got disturbing news yesterday from an impeccable source that when gold touches $2,000 it’s confiscated in the USA for about $200. Then it’s to be reissued by the Treasury for $10,000 per ounce to back the new IMF world currency using SDRS in 2011.  Large physical gold is being moved to Canadahttp://money.cnn.com/2011/02/10/markets/dollar/index.htm
 
I very much thank both David Morgan and Roger Wiegand for allowing me to post this information as I believe it will help all who read it to become aware of what is being discussed as a potential of future events.

The article in the email links to the IMF calling for a new trading currency in place of the U.S. dollar.  The writing is on the wall.  I just have to ask, has everyone been paying attention?  Also when an email like this goes out from a very well respected metals expert to other experts in the field, everyone should sit up and pay attention!
