The Israel Deception

Is the return of Israel in the 20th century truly a work of God, or is it a result of a cosmic chess move to deceive the elect by the adversary?

Selling your virgninity: Two different viewpoints on what innocence is worth

Within the span of a week, two women from opposite ends of the globe used their virginity for two completely different means.  On Oct. 26, American Thinker ran a story of a well privileged women who compared losing her virginity to voting for Obama.  While in Brazil, a young women cashed in on her innocence by selling the right to take her flower through an EBAY auction.

The difference between ideology and capitalistic transaction?  $780,000.

But yet,..there is Lena Dunham breathlessly telling us about her First Time so a young college girl, especially in the swing state of Ohio where this ad is running, would know what to do Your First Time ...voting for Barack Obama (D). - American Thinker

And on the flip side...

Catarina Migliorini (pictured) is a Brazilian student who placed her virginity up for auction on eBay on October 15 for a mind-boggling $780,000. Think there weren’t any takers? Well guess again! A Japanese man named Natsu fought off other high rollers to win Migliorini’s prized possession, reports the New York Daily News.

Since the sexual revolution, virginity, and sexual relationships have become both a commodity, and a activist weapon to seize power on a world of male domination.  Unfortunately, the end result has become higher divorce rates in the Western world, as well as displacement in the roles of men and women.  Only in the last decade has the term Metrosexual come into the mainstream vernacular, as men are being conditioned to be more feminine than masculine.

With sex in the 21st century being so blase, open, and free, the concept of a women remaining a virgin past the age of 18, much less 21, is the new taboo in western cultures.  Thus it is not surprising that someone could sell their virginity to any one of millions of rich men, seeking power over a women for a price, by taking her most treasured gift like a business transaction.  While at the same time, a woman viewing her lust in voting for a demigogue as the equivalent of her offering that same gift in homage to a political figure.

Corzine defense attempts to cry innocent by saying he lost money too

Former Goldman Sachs chief and Governor of New Jersey Jon Corzine is trying hard to act like an innocent victim in the ongoing MF Global fraud scandal.  In a recent hearing on Oct. 23, lawyers for the failed CEO attempted to get all inquiries and charges thrown out of court by intimating that he must be innocent of fraud since he lost money too when he bought company shares just a few months before the bankruptcy.



Indeed, the investors' claim that Mr. Corzine participated in a fraud "makes no sense" because, just two months before the company collapsed, he bought over 50,000 shares of MF Global stock on the open market. His lawyers argue Mr. Corzine's stock purchase belies the investors' claim that he sought to defraud them.

 As lawyers for the banks that underwrote MF Global's securities noted, trading firms can go under without fraud.

 "Companies sometimes fail because of unsuccessful business strategies," said lawyers for the underwriters. "However regrettable that reality, courts long have taught that such failures alone do not give rise to claims under the federal securities laws."

To date, neither Mr. Corzine nor others at MF Global have been charged with a crime. - Wall Street Journal via Zerohedge

Indeed, it is unlikely that Corzine will ever be charged with any wrongdoing, especially in lieu of the fact that the failed financier is one of President Obama's chief campaign contributors, and has helped the administration numerous times as an adviser and fundraiser.

Nigel Farage blasts the EU for seeking total subjugation of European nations

There seems to be only one voice of truth in the European Union (EU), and that voice as always is British appointee Nigel Farage.  In his continuing crusade against the central bank ploys to overthrow Democratically elected government (Greece and Italy), his latest rant on Oct. 23 against the EU is in response to their overt attempts to subjugate the entirety of Europe, by crucifying nations with a cross of fiat currency.


In one his plainest-speaking rants, Farage provides clarity to his 'peers' on just exactly what the bailouts of Greece, Portugal, Ireland, and soon to be Spain and Italy are actually about - the "total subjugation of the states to a completely undemocratic structure in Brussels." Is it any wonder Samaras and crew - while happy to accept cash and make promises - are pulling away from yet another (this time is the last time) Troika-driven austerity push? "The euro-zone is in a very dark place; economically, socially, and politically." - Zerohedge

Psychopath economist wants to utlize former nazi eugenics programs to save the future of mankind

America grew into the world's greatest empire through innovation, growth, economic and social freedoms, and in engineering a greater place for humanity.  But as the other parts of the world increased populations, without seeking to rise as well in the innovation of man, the results were war, chaos, starvation and tyrany.

To address this effect, a former economist of the World Bank is now proposing that humanity needs to de-evolve, and in doing so, make future generations smaller and more efficient.  In a report on Oct. 21, former World Bank Senior Economist and now professor at the University of Maryland, is advocating that mankind must create new breeding programs to engineer smaller species so that they will require less food and resources.



In an article titled The Populations Problem written two days ago by Herman Daly, a former World Bank luminary and current professor at the University of Maryland suggests genetically designing smaller human beings to counter global population growth. Breeding smaller human beings, Daly asserts, “could be the simplest way of increasing metabolic efficiency (measured as number of people maintained by a given resource throughput).”

In his article, Daly rejects the argument that limiting human numbers is an automatic result of technological progress and economic growth, the so called “demographic transition”, and points to the environmental dangers posed by just lowering the birthrates through development and prosperity. Daly:

“Of course reduction in fertility by automatic correlation with rising standard of living is politically easy, while direct fertility reduction is politically difficult. But what is politically easy may be environmentally destructive.” - Explosive Reports

Eugenics, or selective breeding as a doctrine is not new, and has actually been a discussed topic in America for more than a century.  Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, created her organization primarily in the cause of weeding out 'undesirables' in the African-American community, and to push for regulated selective breeding of blacks and other minorities.  In the 1930's, Adolph Hitler spoke of Sanger's work and doctrines, and it became the leading path towards his desire for a super-human race, while at the same time justified the anhilation of lesser humans or even entire races of people.
“Since Hitler’s praise of the ABCL was in print and widely publicized, the first step was to change the name. Sanger changed her organization’s name from the American Birth Control League to Planned Parenthood. Though the name was different, the goal was the same...
The elitest left in both the U.S., and in international organizations have long sought ways to implement population control, while at the same time coopting the land and resources of nations into their dominion (Agenda 21).  Herman Daly is not the first to reconstitute the call for eugenics in mankind, nor will he be the last, for the psychopaths of those in power see humanity as chattel for them to use, enslave, and dispose of as they see fit.

Presidential sponsors: Candidates should wear patches showing who owns them

In the world of presidential campaigns, the public's vote may count towards who is elected, but your money doesn't decide what the winning candidate will support.  In the world of high end financial elections, the amount of money spent by corporate lobbyists for a particular candidate not only dwarfs what individual citizens donate, but inevitably dictate what the winning candidate will side with regarding legislation during their term in office.



The last time we checked on the (funding) status of America's real presidential race - the one where America's uber-wealthy try to outspend each other in hopes of purchasing the best president money can buy - the totals were substantially lower. With November 6 rapidly approaching, however, the scramble to lock in those record political lobbying IRRs is in its final lap. And thanks to the unlimited nature of PAC spending, look for the spending to really go into overdrive in the next 2 weeks as the spending frenzy on the world's greatest tragicomedy hits previously unseen heights. - Zerohedge

See entire list of major donors to both candidates and parties here.

So if you ever wonder why every Treasury Secretary, every Fed Chairman, and every economic advisor to the President is from Goldman Sachs or JP Morgan, now you know because they pay for the right to not just sit at the table of citizen government, but to overthrow the ruler (you) and install the banking technocracy that now pervades the European Union.

Audit the Fed: German courts demand full audit of nation's gold supply

On Oct. 22, the German Court of Auditors voted to demand a full audit of the nation's gold supply, which is currently being held in the Federal Reserve vaults, the Bank of England, and the Bank of France.

This audit demand comes during a time when Germany is standing against the EU's move for an overall banking czar, and when the EU central bank is seeking dominion over the monetary policies of sovereign nations.



The German court of auditors (Bundesrechnungshof) has demanded that the Bundesbank undertake an audit of its gold reserves. In an 'audit-the-fed' style effort, the court wants to ensure that the nearly 3400 tons of gold is in fact in existence - 'because stocks have never been checked for authenticity and weight'. Furthermore, the Bundesbank's gold is stored in three other vaults around the world: The Bank of England, The Bank of France, and the US Federal Reserve. The court questions the practice of relying on a written confirmation from the custodians (foreign central banks). The decision means negotiating with the three foreign central banks for physical verification but in anticipation, the Bundesbank has begun the process of shipping 50 tons per year from the Fed back to Germany for the next three years. -  Zerohedge

Germany, the most solvent and fiscally responsible nation in the European Union, is quickly learning the lesson of 'if you don't hold it, you don't own it', and following in the footsteps os China, Russia, Iran, and other nations seeking to bring their gold under sovereign ownership.

Chicago liberals can't stop gun violence so instead they will tax it

Chicago has become a war zone, with criminal and gang elements killing each other and regular citizens at an alarming rate.  The Mayor, legislature, and police have been unable to do anything about it over the past two years, so their newest solution is to institute a tax on both guns and ammunition.


Image of old machine gun tax stamp

Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle will submit a budget proposal Thursday that calls for a tax of a nickel for each bullet and $25 for each firearm sold in the nation's second-largest county, which encompasses Chicago.

Preckwinkle's office estimates the tax will generate about $1 million a year, money that would be used for various county services including medical care for gunshot victims. Law enforcement officials would not have to pay the tax, but the office said it would apply to 40 federally licensed gun dealers in the county. - MSNBC

Presumably, after the Supreme Court shot down the cities draconian attempts to deprive citizens in Chicago of their second ammendment rights to own firearms, they are choosing to take it to the next level and try to raise the price beyond the ability of people to protect themselves.

For decades, the city of Chicago has been a town run by a political machine, which uses community organizer associations (like the one Barack Obama was a part of), to control the people and ensure votes are made to keep the machine in power.  Thus gun ownership within the city is seen a threat to the machine, and since they are unable to quash it entirely, taxing it like a vice appears to be a good way to dissuade ownership, as well as milk the citizens for extra money.  Chicago is massively in debt, and holds a huge budget deficit for this fiscal year, even as they have one of the highest sales tax rates in the country.

World of Warcraft biggest recipient of Chinese internet expansion

A new report came out on Oct. 16 showing that one of the biggest recipients of Chinese internet expansion is the ever popular World of Warcraft online game.  Since 2011, WoW players in the Asian country have increased by 4.6%, and make up 25% of all internet users in China.



As the Chinese transition from healthy working individuals to couch-potato-like consuming-monkeys, we wonder just what the China of tomorrow will look like. To wit, Shanghai Daily reports that the world's largest online game-maker Blizzard Entertainment (World of WarCraft and StarCraft II) just announced that the number of Chinese online game players has surged to a new high after the upgrading of China's broadband services.

There are 120 million online game players in the country, up 4.6% from last year, of the 538 million internet users in mainland China. - Zerohedge

This is probably not a surprise as World of Warcraft recently introduced its new expansion Pandaria, which allows players to create Panda avatars, and just happen to be the national animal of China.  Not to mention, playing online mmorpg's is a cheap form of entertainment in a country where the median income for citizens remains fairly low.

Manipulated inflation rates by government leading to lower COLA on Social Security for 2013

With the Federal Reserve and Federal government blatently manipulating the true rate of inflation in the economy, the results for 2013 are going to be a 1 or 2% COLA increase for Social Security recipients next year.





Charts courtesy of Shadowstats

Social Security recipients shouldn't expect a big increase in monthly benefits come January.

Preliminary figures show the annual benefit boost will be between 1 percent and 2 percent, which would be among the lowest since automatic adjustments were adopted in 1975. Monthly benefits for retired workers now average $1,237, meaning the typical retiree can expect a raise of between $12 and $24 a month.

The size of the increase will be made official Tuesday, when the government releases inflation figures for September. The announcement is unlikely to please a big block of voters _ 56 million people get
benefits _ just three weeks before elections for president and Congress. - Associated Press via Breitbart

According to John Williams and Shadowstats, true inflation for 2012 is between 5 and 9%, dependent upon which model (1980 or 1990) one chooses to reference.  The government has manipulated real price inflation for more than two decades to ensure COLA increases are not in line with real inflation, to both save 10's of billion of dollars in benefit payouts, and to hide the fact that their deficit spending is causing massive inflation on essentials people need like food, energy, and rents.

Going into the 2012 election, the current administration doesn't want you to see the 30-80 rise in food prices over the past four years, and are making sure their media propagandists lie to you on what the real inflation rate is in the economy.

Government bailouts and Fed QE is solely about creating more wealth for the rich

Those animated bears are back, and this time they are breaking down how the government bailouts, along with Federal Reserve QE policies, are solely about making more money for the rich.  It is greed, theft, and a destruction of the American monetary system at its finest, while Uncle Sam simply keeps the bread and circuses of welfare and entertainment flowing to dull people from ever seeing the destruction.





This animation shows pure and simple that the credit crisis, trillion dollar bailouts, Federal Reserve actions are built to enhance the rich and major corporations, keep people spending money they don't have, and drain the last vestiges of true wealth from the economy and American capitol.

Tax the rich?  Like the meager fines placed on big banks for theri billion dollar fraud schemes, people like Warren Buffet are happy to pay a few million in a PR move to hide the fact he earned billions of of your taxes.

First National Bank of Apple could be next big release

General Motors did it, Sears and JC Penny have done it, and so have a number of blue chip corporations.  Creating your own finance company, which bypasses banks and allows for a whole new revenue stream for sales and gathering interest payments is an American institution, with both Google and Amazon now joining in the mix.

So this then begs the question for the world's largest tech company... how long until we get to see the First National Bank of Apple?


Google is getting into the credit business for the first time, with the launch on Monday of a programme in the UK to finance purchases of its search advertising by businesses.

The move marks the opening of a new front in the battle between the biggest internet companies, as they turn to their balance sheets as a source of competitive advantage. Amazon said last week that it had begun making loans to independent sellers that offer their products on its marketplace, marking the online retailer’s first move into financial services.


Google’s decision to issue its own credit card, which will also be made available in the US within weeks and other unspecified countries later, signals the company’s first attempt to use its huge cash reserves to support its core search advertising business by subsidising low-interest rate credit lines. - Financial Times

Apple has prided itself on being different and independent of the herd mentality, but in the end, the potential gain of being able to finance your own products to the miltiude of Apple zombies is something that might be too enticing to avoid.

Courts may soon decide if you really own what you buy

Governments through the time of our nation's history have distorted and broken the bond of right to personal property through taxation, regulation, and sometimes, outright theft (BATF and Eminent Domain).  But a soon to be court case could completely eradicate American's right to control over the things they buy in the economy and at retail stores.




Under the doctrine, which the Supreme Court has recognized since 1908, you can resell your stuff without worry because the copyright holder only had control over the first sale.

That’s being challenged now for products that are made abroad, and if the Supreme Court upholds an appellate court ruling, it would mean that the copyright holders of anything you own that has been made in China, Japan or Europe, for example, would have to give you permission to sell it.

“It means that it’s harder for consumers to buy used products and harder for them to sell them,” said Jonathan Band, an adjunct professor at Georgetown University Law Center, who filed a friend-of-the-court brief on behalf of the American Library Association, the Association of College and Research Libraries and the Association for Research Libraries. “This has huge consumer impact on all consumer groups.” - Market Watch

In agriculture, companies like Monsanto have already been successful in suing farmers who just happen to have crops grown on their land from seeds that inadvertantly blew in from another farm.  Absolute control over rights to how we grow food is just one phase under attack in America, and now the courts will have to decide if a companies product is simply a lease to consumers, and not a full purchase.

If the court chooses to side with corporations on this, then the ramifications to the U.S. economy could be devastating, as Americans may choose not to buy anything outside basic necessities and ignore products where corporations retain ownership over ones use and right to distribute as they see fit.

Unemployment numbers the Chicago way: Obama administration skews last report before the election

Since the results of the first Presidential debate on Oct. 3 were a complete fiasco for Obama, many people in the beltway, and financial sectors, knew that something big would be dropped on the American people to try to save the election.  On Oct. 5, that news was published as the newly manipulated BLS report on job creation led to a drop below 8% unemployment for the first time since 2009, and not surprisingly, during the last reportable month before the election.


Unbelievable jobs numbers..these Chicago guys will do anything..can't debate so change numbers - Jack Welch Tweet

But what was the reason for this epic jump in Household survey jobs? Simple, and those who have read our series on America's transition to a part-time worker society know the answer. The reason is that the number of part-time people employed for economic reasons soared by 582,000 to 8,613,000, the most since October 2011, and the largest one month jump since February 2009 - Zerohedge

The Labor force participation rate rises from 30 year lows to 63.5% to 63.6%



So what we see in this months report, which will assuredly be revised by a multiple of 5-10 next month, or during the final annual report, is a last ditch attempt to brainwash Americans before the election that Obama's economic policies are working, and that people are finding jobs (that no on can really make claim to), on paper vs. the real world.

It's not about truth in the world of politics, its about the perception of truth, and as former GE CEO pointed out, its the Chicago way.

Al Gore channels his Joe Biden in blaming altitude for Obama debate fail

When speaking without a script or in the case of President Obama, a telepromptor, candidates sound the best when they speak with conviction of what they believe, and speak the truth as they see it, not as they want to portrary it.

In poll numbers across the board that show Romney trounced the President in the first debate on Oct. 3, there was no question who spoke what they believed, and what their true convictions are.  And becuase of this, liberals, Democrats, and the media were forced to spin information in overtime as to why Obama did so poorly, and looked like the lesser man in front of the cameras.



However, one liberal that is well known for both lying and exaggeration, came up with the most preposterous excuse for Obama's failed debate.  Channeling his inner Joe Biden, former Vice President Al Gore went on national television and said it was the altitude in Denver that led to his inability to properly speak and respond to questions.



Just as the President continuously blamed Bush several times during last night's debate, Al Gore is the epitome of liberals and Democrats who refuse to take responsibility for their own shortcoming, failures, and actions.

What is next Al?  Will Obama lose the Presidency due to a rise in the oceans from global warming and other psuedo sciences you tout as fact.

Social Security benefits to reach $65 billion per month to government

It appears to be fortunate for the elderly and those on Social Security that Ben Bernanke implemented QE4evr last month, just as the national debt crossed over $16 trillion dollars.  Accordingly, that additional money is soon going to be needed as on Oct. 2, the cost to the government and to taxpayers for Social Security benefits has now reached $65 billion per month.



-The monthly SS payout is bigger than the market cap of some well know companies, including: Amex, 3M, US Bankcorp, Amgen, eBay and Caterpillar. Goldman Sachs is worth a measly $54b. SS could buy the whole thing with just three-weeks worth of payout.

-The annual cost for SS is greater than the ridiculous monster market cap for Apple. If SS used its muscle to buy big cap stocks, it could buy up all of the shares of Microsoft, Wal-Mart and Google in less than a year.

The annual SS payout is about the same as the GDP of the Netherlands. It is well larger than the output of either Turkey, Switzerland or Saudi Arabia. In 2013 SS will spend more than the GDP of Indonesia, a country of 250m people. - Bruce Kasting

When you add this cost to the 47 million Americans on food stamps, and the over 100 million Americans who receive some form of government benefit, you begin to see why the system has no choice but to inevitably collapse at some point, and no amount of Fed spun money can keep up with the promises and corruption of politcians.

Americas broken down welfare system where millionaires receive unemployment

One of the biggest complaints about any government run system or agency is the sheer size and ineptitude of their bureaucracies.  From paying rents or leases on unhabited buildings, to propping up failed agencies such as the Department of Education or the Postal Service, government waste costs taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollar per year.

So it probably won't come as much of a surprise that a new report on Oct. 2 from the Congressional Reserch Center shows that in 2009, the Federal government actually paid unemployment benefits to over 2370 households that earned over $1 million dollars.



Just because millionaires are people too, and they too can apparently lose their jobs, we now learn courtesy of the Congressional Research Center, that in 2009, 2,362 Americans making over $1,000,000 in income (and just shy of a million people making over $200,000) collected unemployment benefits. - Zerohedge


Through the last decade, government programs have paid welfare to many different people and agencies that did not need it, and fell outside the intended income levels of the program.  But rather than reform these broken programs that cost the taxpayers $billions, more often than not, Congress enlarges these agencies, and puts good money after bad to keep creating the largest welfare state in the history of the world.

Gold closes in on $1800 on events in Spain and words from Fed President

In early morning trading on Oct. 1, gold and silver both shot up to new 2011 highs on news out of Spain of a potential bailout, and additionally, through the desire for even greater Fed action by Chicago Fed president Charles Evans.



Gold and Silver and surging this morning as the Fed's Charles Evans talks on CNBC of the need for more accomodative policy by the Fed. His 'infiniter' easing seems to have sparked this move as he clarifies the seeming psychopathy of the Federal Reserve's actions. His message clearly is that the amount doesn't matter (nor the unintended consequences), the printing and flooding of money into an already stuffed banking system will continue until morale improves. - Zerohedge

To add more fuel to the fire, Europe came out with new unemployment numbers for the Eurozone, and the jobless have now reached record levels.

The eurozone unemployment figures came in at 11.4% in August. This data was compiled for the 17 nations in the single currency and equals the data of June & July after their figures were revised upwards.

This is the highest since they began recording the eurozone jobless claims in 1995. In a region with such diverse economies Germany remains at 5.5%, while debt beleaguered Spain is at 25.1%.

This clearly shows that the economic crisis in Europe is far from over and certainly cast doubts that the ECB bond purchase plan can resurrect the economy. The ECB is targeting the economy to contract again at -0.40% down from an earlier forecast of -0.10%.

Factory output has shrunk for 14 consecutive months and businesses must continue to trim the fat of their organizations during these recessionary times.

The report showed that 18.2 million people were jobless in September; this is an increase of 34,000 people versus the previous month. - Goldcore via Zerohedge

The Western economies are cracking, with recessionary numbers in durable good sales, and GDP numbers.  Unfortunately, the FED's recent action of open ended QE is not doing much to stave off collapse in Europe, and inflation in the US is already showing signs of exploding with gas prices over $4 a gallon in many state regions.

The American system of the petro dollar is ripe for collapse

A few weeks ago, the Daily Economist wrote a piece on another website of the game changing revelation in China where they will now be bypassing the dollar in oil transactions, and allowing all countries around the world to buy and sell oil in a currency other than the dollar.  This sea change is an attack on US hegemoney over the reserve currency, and the currency known as oil, and would be the primary catalyst in destroying the economy without firing a shot.

Dollar no longer primary oil currency as China begins to sell oil using Yuan

http://www.examiner.com/article/dollar-no-longer-primary-oil-currency-as-china-begins-to-sell-oil-using-yuan

In fact, world renowned commodities trade Jim Sinclair expanded upon this move, and said that the ultimate goal was a bypassing of the SWIFT system, which is used globally for all transactions between currencies.



What this article really said, if you have the eyes to see it, is that China has a system in place to offset the effect of being shut out of the SWIFT system, the economic nuclear weapon of the West. That proves that the premature threat and use of the SWIFT system against Iran will have rendered this economic weapon useless in the future. The mistake the West made prematurely using the economic weapon, the SWIFT system, will come back to haunt the West as extremely expensive. Had this not been used prematurely, it could have shut down major nation’s economic processes by electronically deleting the enemy from the SWIFT system. Therefore the taking and making of settlement on international transaction would have fallen back on only the gold a nation had. Everyone had gotten lazy so both enemies and friends were settling international transactions on SWIFT. History will see this as the mistake of the century. Now all opposed to each other have or are developing their own electronic payment system free of SWIFT. - Jim Sinclair

Now, the Republic of Texas TV has created a video explaining the history of the petro dollar, and what it would mean to all Americans if the global economy suddenly rejected the dollar as the reserve currency.



China, along with Russia has already made the first moves, and pandoras box has been opened.  What we choose to do to hedge the coming changes is all about the understanding of sound money and assets, and what both gold and silver (physical) mean about wealth protection.
