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.

Like Alibaba's domination over Amazon, Line's social media platform could soon dominate Facebook

There was an interesting statement made back in the 19th century during the industrial revolution that went, I would rather sell 100 shirts at $1 apiece to the Chinese than 10 shirts at $10 apiece.  This is because the potential for profit using the price elasticity of demand model, where by lowering the price you gain much more consumers, is a powerful tool when dealing with the massive populations residing in Asia.


And to date we have seen how this model works in the 21st century, as the e-commerce business known as Alibaba has emerged not only as one of the top 5 companies in the world, but it is also bigger than both Amazon and Ebay combined.

On July 14, the newest Asian powerhouse went public with their own IPO, and already it has the potential to soon dominate Western social media platforms like Facebook.  This is because the Japanese social media company called Line is based on appealing to customer demands and desires, and they have a population potential of several billion users to service.

It took Facebook five years to reach 200 million active users, but only three years for Line to achieve that same number.  And Facebook would have to wait another three years before launching itself as a public IPO, and at a value several dollars less than Line did today at $42 per share.
Line users per quarter

The bottom line is that so far in the second decade of the 21st century, the potential for growth is far greater in Asia than it is in the West, and especially within the United States economy.  And perhaps this is also why China now has the world's largest bank, and in reality the world's largest financial system, and where the future of economic growth no longer resides in companies coming out of the West.

Former Facebook associates seek to turn bitcoin into an ETF and make it a tradable commodity

The Winklevoss Twins, known famously for being associated with the creation of Facebook at one time, are beginning their next capital venture in the markets.  On July 1, a filing was made with the Securities and Exchange commission to form a new public IPO, which would function as an ETF and facilitate the buying and selling of bitcoins via equity shares.

To make it simple, the Winklevoss's wish to turn the electronic currency known as Bitcoin into a commodity, trade it as an equity in the public stock exchanges, and do this under an ETF the same way gold (GLD) and silver (SLV) is traded through JP Morgan.

Winklevoss Bitcoin Trust, which is designed to operate like an exchange-traded fund, will initially sell $20 million worth of shares, with each share worth a fraction of a Bitcoin, a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission showed on Monday.

Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, whose feud with Zuckerberg was portrayed in the fictionalized 2010 film "The Social Network," have amassed nearly $11 million worth of Bitcoins, according to a report in the New York Times in April. - Reuters

There are many pros and cons to this attempted financial scheme, but few that would benefit the true users and recipients who hail bitcoin as an alternative currency to the fiat global system.  On one hand, by legitimizing Bitcoin as a commodity, and having it recognized by the SEC on a public stock exchange, the ability for the Treasury Department, Secret Service, or other government agency to seize bitcoin operations would be hampered.  However, it also means that the original foundation of bitcoin, an electronic currency exchange with a limited production capacity, can now be suspect to government price controls the same way the futures markets control paper spot prices rather than the market price of the physical commodity.

In the world of finance, it is said that if bankers could leverage their mothers teeth to make a profit they will.  And although the Winklevoss Twins have a strong belief in the power and mission of the bitcoin currency, they also see the potential to exploit it for greater profits made in U.S. dollars, at the expense of the thousands of bitcoin owners who seek a different avenue for bitcoin's future.

CNBC's Jim Cramer provides insane prediction of Obama landslide

On Nov. 5, Jim Cramer of CNBC's Mad Money program, offered his election prognostication for what tomorrow will bring for the country.  In a parallel to his atrocious stock picking record, and embarrassing diatribe of not selling Bear Stearns just days before it went bankrupt, the former hedge fund manager predicts that President Obama will win by not only a landslide, but with numbers not seen since Ronald Reagan in 1984.

Jim Cramer:

Popular vote:  Obama: 55%, Romney: 45%
Electoral College:  Obama: 440, Romney: 98

Not only are these numbers absurd, there is not one poll, or analyst who is with 100 electors of this insane prediction.  Cramer believes that several states, including long standing conservative ones like Arizona and Texas, will go for Obama, even when they didn't in 2008.


Analysis of Jim Cramer's stock pick performance:

In a quick chat with MarketBeat one of the paper’s authors, Paul Bolster, was kind enough to translate, explaining that Cramer beats the market in part because of the excess risk in his picks. “If we adjust for his market risk, we come up with an excess return that is essentially zero,” Bolster said, adding that “zero,” in this case, means his returns are roughly in line with the risk he’s taking on. “He’s pulling his own weight with respect to the risks that his picks represent,” Bolster said. In the paper, Bolster and fellow finance professor Trahan conclude that “we find inconsistent evidence of Cramer’s ability to add value through security selection.” - WSJ

Numbers wonk Patrick Burns served as the key stat cruncher for the Barron’s story, and here’s his paper explaining his approach. Conclusion: “In my opinion, Jim Cramer’s stock-picking superiority is at best unproved.”

Then of course, there is Cramer's more recent epic fail when he pushed the Facebook IPO on his show.



Looks like the man who is part of the psychopathic 1%, who believe taking massive risks at the detriment of investors and the country, is simply adding to his resume of being the fool and joker of Wall Street.

Las Vegas resorts offering major deals to customers in recession

In an interesting look at economic indicators, one of the most esoteric, but actually relevent is Las Vegas revenues.  Since the credit crash of 2007, and the stagnant economy dipping in and out of recession, the loss of disposable income by Americans is leading many resorts to offer outstanding deals on hotel stays.



The Plaza Hotel and Casno, along with LaOhana.com, is giving away three free nights if you simply Like their facebook page and fill out an online application.

Like our Facebook page on the right side and we will give you a 3 night stay for free at the Plaza Hotel and Casino Las Vegas.

Please fill out this form and you will receive a confirmation by email or phone from a Plaza Representative. Offer is good for one per house hold. Must stay between 8/1/2012 - 9/30/2012. Room booking must be 3 or less consecutive nights.

This is a collaboration with LaOhana.com and Plaza Hotel and Casino - laohana

Like deflationary periods in an economy, recessions can also be a boon to those individuals who live without debt, and are primary savers over spenders.  It is during the lean times that the best deals can be found for cars, homes, and in this case, vacations in Las Vegas, and there is normally no better incentive to do something than if it is offered for free.

Soccer fans and investors getting ready to own a stake in Manchester United

First it was fan ownership in the Green Bay Packers.  Now, soccer fans around the world can buy into one of the most lucrative clubs in Europe as Manchester United goes public in a planned IPO on August 9th.


Unfortunately for investors these days, IPO's are not the best equity to grow your money in.  All one has to do is look at Zynga, Facebook, and Linkedin to see what while Euro Soccer may be a serious money maker, investing in stocks is not.

Facebook fallout: Nasdaq cites computer glitches in pre-market trades for IPO

The fallout from the Facebook IPO has now stretched far beyond the drop in stock price.  On Tuesday, Morgan Stanley was issued a subpoena to appear before a District Court on the grounds they pre-loaded information to 'certain investors', while at the same time allowing retail to walk into a money trap. 



Today, the repurcussions of the largest IPO in history took another turn as Nasdaq cited 'technical problems' which kept many traders from receiving confirmation of their purchases for more than two hours on Friday.

As the WSJ reports: "A senior Nasdaq Stock Market official told customers Tuesday afternoon that it would have pulled the plug on Facebook Inc.'s initial public offering had it known the full extent of the technical problems that plagued its systems. On a conference call with brokers after Tuesday's close, Eric Noll, head of transaction services, said the exchange "by no means would have gone forward" with the much-watched Facebook debut if it had known problems would disrupt a "normal trading day." "In retrospect, it was incorrect," - Zerohedge

What this boils down to is that the potential of today's high frequency trading in the markets (up to 75% of all trades), could quite feasibly killed the market for Facebook, as volume on opening day literally put the mega-machines on tilt.

There is a reason Lindsey Williams said on Coast to Coast AM on Monday that the elite NO LONGER PLAY THE STOCK MARKETS, and that paper trading is simply opium for the masses to make them FEEL wealthy, while using this platform to rob the wealth from the public.

Fastest growing job sector in America? Facebook apps!

While the U.S. jobs picture lis generally bleak, the proliferation of Facebook and mobile technology applications has spawned an entirely new industry dubbed the "App Economy", that has added at least 182,000 new jobs and contributed more than $12.19 billion in wages and benefits to the U.S. economy this year, according to new research from the University of Maryland's Robert H. Smith School of Business. Using more aggressive estimates, the Facebook App Economy created a total of 235,644 jobs, adding a value of $15.71 billion to the economy.
