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?

Apple's prophetic 1984 commercial comes to pass, only it is Apple's CEO Tim Cook who is Big Brother

In 1984, Superbowl commercials were just beginning to be superstars in their own right during the most watched television event of the year.  And one of the most widely remembered and widely acclaimed was Apple Computer's 1984 spot in which they used a prophetic vision of George Orwell's dystopian future to introduce the Macintosh PC.

But irony is a fickle mistress, and on Feb. 12, 2017 the same company that sought to introduce a world free of tyranny through personal computers and the soon to be internet 32 years ago are the ones now seeking to become Big Brother and censor free speech that doesn't fit their liberal corporate agenda.

And in a frighteningly Orwellian interview with The Telegraph, Cook explains calmly how to fix 'fake news'... 
“It has to be ingrained in the schools, it has to be ingrained in the public,” said Mr Cook. “There has to be a massive campaign. We have to think through every demographic. 
"We need the modern version of a public-service announcement campaign. It can be done quickly if there is a will.” 
"We are going through this period of time right here where unfortunately some of the people that are winning are the people that spend their time trying to get the most clicks, not tell the most truth,” he said. “It’s killing people’s minds in a way.” 
“All of us technology companies need to create some tools that help diminish the volume of fake news. 
"We must try to squeeze this without stepping on freedom of speech and of the press, but we must also help the reader. Too many of us are just in the complain category right now and haven’t figured out what to do.”
Apple CEO Tim Cook is not the only corporate magnate seeking to censor free speech that is in opposition to their agendas, as Amazon's Jeff Bezos, Twitter's Jack Dorsey, Google's Eric Schmidt, and even Facebook's Mark Zuckerburg have all invested money and technology towards silencing alternative news sources that have repeatedly pointed out the lies and propaganda of the oligarchical establishment.

Alex Jones's motto for his ever growing media empire is "There is a war on for your mind!", and this has never been more accurate since Donald Trump won the election for President just three months ago.  And just like many dystopian books, movies, and stories that talk about a world run by corporations rather than governments, Apple's Tim Cook is now trying to lead us into that type of future, and follow the path that his company laid out in a commercial three decades ago.

No country for young men: Apple to invest more in China versus the U.S.

Applebots in the United States are likened more to a cult rather than as a group of individuals simply enamored by the ghost of Steve Jobs and the pursuit of portable electronic gear.  And these devoted consumers are more than happy to spend their money on unnecessary gadgets rather than look deeper into the process from which these items are made.

And what is perhaps most interesting is that a large portion of Apple product owners are big into activism and social justice, which begs the question of their mental stability when their masters could really care less about the American worker and consumer as long as they keep buying the newest iPhone or meaningless trinket.

Apple will increase investment in China and actively participate in China's "Internet Plus" strategy and smarter manufacturing, said Apple CEO Tim Cook on Tuesday.
Cook made the remarks in Beijing while meeting with China's Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli, who called on U.S. companies to increase their investment and expand the industrial chain of their business. 
Zhang said trade and investment cooperation between China and the United States injects dynamism into the two countries' economic development and boosts global growth. 
Cook also said that Apple plans to set up an independent research and development center in China before the end of 2016, the first in the Asia-Pacific region, though he did not reveal the specific location. - People.cn
Just as General Motors expects Americans to purchase their cars despite the fact they conned the government into a taxpayer funded bailout, and built their newest factories in China and not the United States, shows just how little multi-national corporations feel about the consumers they strive to sell to, and that people are simply fodder for the locusts who when finished, will simply move on to another region of the world to exploit.

There are no allegiances with consumers when it comes to Apple, but that has not changed the fact that tens of millions will fight you to the death to justify their choices to follow the company blindly with their opinions and their wallets.

FBI gets aid from Israeli company to hack its Apple iPhone problem

A couple of days ago, the FBI suddenly suspended its lawsuit against Apple where they had wanted to have an iPhone owned by one of the San Bernadino terrorists unlocked to search for further intel.  And over the past 24 hoursn many have speculated as to why this shift took place, and who might be helping the Federal law enforcement agency to crack the security.
And on March 23 we now have an answer as it appears an Israeli company called Cellebrite has offered to aid the feds in breaking Apple’s encryption and perhaps even provide a new backdoor for the government to infiltrate any iPhone it wants.

With robots expected to replace one million workers in near future, Karatbars can help you prepare financially and vocationally for that tomorrow

In the past six months alone, robots and new computer technologies have come in swiftly to replace workers in the fast food industry after they began their crusade for a $15 per hour minimum wage.  And even more than simply touch screen kiosks being installed to replace wait staff and front counter order takers, robotic mechanisms are now so advanced they can replace most of the cooks standing behind the scenes filling our your orders.

Entering into 2016 there are an estimated 3.7 million workers in the fast food industry alone, many of which can and are being replaced with machines who do not require added wages, sick days, or lunch breaks.  And yet this is just one segment of an entire economy that is quickly being replaced by robots and robotic technologies, but is the most visual since we see these businesses every day when we go to lunch, or look outside the home for a quick meal.


Starting in the 1990's, robots began to replace human labor on assembly lines in the automotive industry, and have led to the loss of of over 2.2 million jobs in the manufacturing sector alone.
Between 1993 and 2007 (the timeframe studied by Graetz and Micheals) the United States increased the number of robots per hour worked by 237 percent. During the same period the U.S. economy shed 2.2 million manufacturing jobs. Assuming the two trends are linked doesn’t seem farfetched. - Brookings Institute
And earlier this year, China's Foxconn corporation, which makes most of Apple's technology products such as the iPhone, iPad, etc... is expected to replace 90% of their work force with robots within the next couple of years.

Robots replacing humans in both high and low wage jobs are no longer a fantasy of science fiction, but an ever-growing reality that is coming to fruition before our very eyes.  And since technologies are even rapidly expanding to allow cars to drive themselves, how long until robots replace even the most menial of jobs such as landscaping, road repairs and installation, and managing your retirement funds with high frequency computers?

This of course leaves people with a choice of embracing the new economic models of business, career, and what jobs are available that have little threat of being replaced one day by programs or machines.  And one of the largest growing segments in the future of work and business is the affiliate marketing model, which is the perfected form of last century's old network marketing method.

Affiliate marketing has been around for a long time, but was perfected through companies like Amazon who pay affiliates for directing people to purchase products on their website.  And even someone with little experience can earn a very good living by building a simple website and having their affiliate links bring people to the businesses they represent.

*See the Difference between Affiliate Marketing and illegal 'Pyramid Schemes'*

And while robots may be taking away our physical labor jobs, the creation of the internet has opened up infinite possibilities now to allow you to go beyond any set pay scale you would have had working for a company as an employee.  And based on your drive, motivation, ingenuity, and the community that comes from a good solid business, over time people discover that breaking away from the old paradigms of work is helping them to create a new future that has less stress, more security, and above all, pays you what you are worth based on your results versus simply the number of hours worked.

Yet because affiliate marketing is a business model that is being recognized and utilized by more and more companies, especially in the e-commerce spectrum, which one is best for you to choose either while you still have a job, or if you are out of work, and that can fulfill all the necessary requirements of being inexpensive to start and operate, has a product many people desire, can lead to financial security, and has a community of people willing to help you whether you are in their downlines or not?

You can accomplish all of these criteria with a company called Karatbars.




Buying gold through Karatbars is one of the easiest things on the net.  In fact, the business model of Karatbars is to sell gold in affordable quantities, such as 1, 2.5, and 5 gram increments, and allow customers to get into the metal without having to shell out $1200+ for a single ounce coin.

And as added perks to signing up with Karatbars, as a customer or affiliate, Karatbars is working on a new e-wallet system that functions just like an offshore bank account, and is outside the authority of the banking system.  From there, you can take your fiat currency in any denomination... dollars, euros, yen, etc... and purchase physical gold which can either be delivered directly to you, or stored for free at one of Karatbar's vaults.

Additionally, any gold that you buy can easily be sold back to Karatbars, or any metals dealer, and if with Karatbars it is then exchanged for currency that is uploaded to you through a pre-loaded debit Mastercard which is connected directly to your e-wallet.  And as we know, MasterCard is recognized in nearly every country around the world, and usable in any currency that accepts it.

But perhaps the best feature with Karatbars is their affiliate program, where you can earn money off commissions from getting others to sign up and become a customer or affiliate.  Not only do you receive commissions from their purchasing of physical gold, but you also earn commissions from anyone who buys a commission package, with that money going directly into your debit MasterCard when you have enough units to cycle.

Imagine the ability to earn the money in which to buy your gold savings simply by purchasing a commission affiliate package one time, and then getting others to sign up and do the same thing.

How many businesses or entrepreneurs can build an infinite business with spending less than $400 of their own money?  And there is never a mandatory requirement to buy beyond what you desire, on your own schedule.  And there is nothing to lose, because you're using money (paper dollars) to buy gold (physical money) and in the end you don't lose a thing.


The global financial system, along with dozens of respected economists, are telling us that now is the time for the end of our current form of money, and the beginning of the transition into a new monetary system that is expected to be backed by gold.  And with banks, governments, and even Harvard professors mandating that central banks have no choice but to eliminate cash from usage by the people to stave off collapse, will you wait until it is too late to make a decision on how you will protect your wealth, and be able to function within the coming new monetary system?

To learn more about Karatbars, you can contact the individual who sent you this article, and click on their referral link to open a free account and begin buying, or building your own gold savings or business with the company of the future.

Welcome to 2008: Dow drops more than 1000 points from its all-time highs

Early this morning, the Dow reached an interesting number as the market has now fallen over 1000 points from its all-time highs reached in May of this year.  And while this decline represents only a 5% drop in the market over the past three months, it is eerily similar to what took place just eight years ago when a 1000 point drop from the previous all-time high led to a stock market crash the very next year, and ushered in a liquidity and credit crisis that we have yet to fully recover from.
From 18,351.36 on May 19th, The Dow (cash) is now at 17,345… -Zerohedge

Paradigm shift: Apple watch could turn gold into an industrial metal

One of the biggest debates between valuations for gold and silver is that the white metal has both monetary and industrial uses while gold simply resides in the jewelry and financial spectrum.  However, this may soon be changing as reports coming out from analysts predict that not only could the new Apple Watch move gold into the realm of an industrial metal, but production numbers show that Apple may require up to 1/3 of the annual global gold production.

China responds to U.S. surveillance by putting Apple and Cisco on a ‘No buy list’

In a war against a fascist state, the best way to asymmetrically attack your opponent is through their wallets.  And since the U.S. government is now completely intertwined with banking and corporate hegemonies that not only write legislation (Obamacare), but provide guidance on such things as the Debt Ceiling, the Chinese are going for the bottom lines of companies to send a message on how they feel about America’s policy of global cyber surveillance.
In a new state policy just out of Beijing, the Chinese government is placing Apple and Cisco on the state ‘No buy list’ in response to the revelations coming out that show Washington uses their technologies to commit cyber-crimes and surveillance on sovereign government’s and peoples.

Apple jumps on the Bitcoin bandwagon

Bitcoin users hit the mother lode on June 2 when America’s largest company announced they were going to begin accepting the virtual currency in their Apps Store, and allow developers the power to sell Apple O/S based programs using Bitcoin.

Aaron Trask:  It was a good day for Bitcoin and other virtual currencies.  Apple, for the first time, gave approval to developers for apps that are paid with virtual currencies.
Henry Blodget: The fundamental idea behind Bitcoin is sound, and having a currency like this makes sense.
Aaron Trask:  Apple is approving virtual currencies… and DISH recently said they were going to accept Bitcoin, Richard Branson and Jerry Yang investing in Bitpay… it is here to stay. - Daily Ticker, Yahoo Finance

NYPD becomes mouthpiece for NSA as they beg people to upgrade to surveilled iOS7

Earlier this month, a report came out that the NSA has full access to most smartphone operating systems through a backdoor programmed into their platforms during their creation.  And while most users of Apple, RIM, and Samsung devices either knew about this intrusion, or relatively don’t care, the New York Police Department wants to be sure you are in synch with the surveillance state.  On Sept. 18, the NYPD  issued a letter calling for all Apple users to make sure to upgrade to the new iOS7 operating system, and the police even resorted to standing in front of Apple stores while shoppers purchased the new iPhone 5′s to make sure everyone got the message.

How now down dow

Forward.  That is the new motto of the Obama administration.  Of course, forward slogans were the key rallying cry for Mao and other communist leaders, so the progressives in America appear more than happy to borrow it for their vision of the country.

However, it appears forward is not the rallying cry of the stock markets post-Obama re-election, as the Dow, S&P, and AAPL cry out in terror after breaking key levels.

It seems like only last night everyone was celebrating more hope, if not much change. Now comes the hangover. The Dow Jones intraday drop is now 2.23% (and rising), greater than the biggest drop so far in 2012 record on June 1. The last time the market plunged as much: literally one year ago, or November 9, 2011. Sadly, it appears that one can't have their Dow Jones Industrial Average and redistribute it too. - Zerohedge

Forward!  To infinity and Beyond! That appears to be the no-win mantra of Fed Charman Bernanke and the hope and change of those who still own paper in the Wall Street casino.

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.

Apple market value now greater than the other top five tech companies

During the 1990's, Yahoo, Microsoft, Dell, and HP ruled the tech world in both market cap value and revenues.  Apple was just a ghost during this decade, with a business model so rigid, only a few diehard Applebots clung to their products.

That market relationship has not only changed in the 21st century, but has gone full circle.  With Apple's new stock price rising over $666 per share, the market value of the risen Phoenix eclipses that of Microsoft, Google, HP, Dell, and Facebook combined.

What is left out however from this picture is that Apple's revenues, when compared to the rest of the Tech companies, does not equate to the current share price.  The bottom line is, the stock markets no longer reflect any real fundamental value of companies, but rather the manipulation of stock prices through HFT, hedge funds, and free money pumped in by the Fed's PPT.

Board votes to take a bite out of Apple

After weeks of shareholders crying for Apple to disconnect themselves from the autocratic policies of former CEO Steve Jobs, the board of the largest retail company in the world (at least on the S&P 500) has decided to spend some of their $98 billion in cash, and offer dividends and share buybacks for investors.


Apple Announces Plans to Initiate Dividend and Share Repurchase Program
Expects to Spend $45 Billion Over Three Years

Business Wire
CUPERTINO, Calif. -- March 19, 2012
Apple today announced plans to initiate a dividend and share repurchase program commencing later this year.

Subject to declaration by the Board of Directors, the Company plans to initiate a quarterly dividend of $2.65 per share sometime in the fourth quarter of its fiscal 2012, which begins on July 1, 2012.

Additionally, the Company’s Board of Directors has authorized a $10 billion share repurchase program commencing in the Company’s fiscal 2013, which begins on September 30, 2012. The repurchase program is expected to be executed over three years, with the primary objective of neutralizing the impact of dilution from future employee equity grants and employee stock purchase programs.

The total cost for Apple in doing this will be around $45 billion over the next three years, which will not even equate to half of their current cash holdings.  Since Apple in the past has not given dividends to loyal shareholders under the rule of Steve Jobs, these actions may be the final disconnect of a paranoid man who willed consumers to do things his way, or the highway.

A tale of two markets: new record highs for both Apple and Foodstamps

In the world of the haves and have-nots, economic analysis can always find new ways to distinguish the direction a populace is taking on the high and low side.  A most interesting comparison seems to have taken place on March 2nd where the wealthiest corporation in the world, Apple, reached another new high in stock price, while at the same time, Food Stamp recipients in American also touched new records.

Think Apple is the only thing allowed to hit new records every month? Think again: presenting iFoodstamps - the number of Americans living in poverty (or at least doing a damn good job of fooling the government in pretending they do). As of December, per SNAP this number just hit another record high of 46.5 million, an increase of 384,000 in one month (and ending the trend of declines from October and November), 2.4 million in 2011 (about as many as have dropped out of the Labor force, hmmmm), and 14.3 million since Obama took office. - Zerohedge



And as Zerohedge points out in ultimate Irony, you can download instruction at iTunes on how to apply and receive food stamps and other benefits.
