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?

German government tells citizens to stockpile in preparedness for more Islamic attacks

While Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton do their best to inform the American people that there is no such thing as radical Islam, the German government on Aug. 21 sent a signal to their own citizens to start stockpiling food, water, and other necessary items in case they must bunker down in the event of Islamic terror attacks.

Germany has become ground zero in Europe for the bringing in of 'refugees' from war torn Islamic countries.  And instead of dedicating their resources towards protecting their own people from refugees who follow and act upon the doctrines of Jihad against the West, their responses have been to ignore the criminal violence now taking place within Germany's borders and to impress upon their citizens that it is better to hide inside their homes than to antagonize these foreign immigrants.
For the first time since the end of the Cold War, the German government plans to tell citizens to stockpile food and water in case of an attack or catastrophe, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung newspaper reported on Sunday.
Germany is currently on high alert after two Islamist attacks and a shooting rampage by a mentally unstable teenager last month. Berlin announced measures earlier this month to spend considerably more on its police and security forces and to create a special unit to counter cyber crime and terrorism. 
"The population will be obliged to hold an individual supply of food for ten days," the newspaper quoted the government's "Concept for Civil Defence" - which has been prepared by the Interior Ministry - as saying. - Reuters

Why do you need to own physical gold and silver? Just ask a Venezuelan

Since last year, monetary policies instituted by Venezuelan President Nicholas Maduro have skyrocketed inflation to the point that it is on the precipice of hyper-inflation.  And reports going back just two months ago show that it is costing citizens around $150 just to buy a dozen eggs.

The official price of eggs is 1,020 bolivars. Yes, the government maintains “official prices.” But Venezuelans can rarely find eggs at the government-run food stores. Maria Linares is a 42-year-old single mother who works for a government ministry as an accounting assistant. She told the Los Angeles Times she has to buy eggs on the street from vendors. Cost? Around 1,500 bolivars for 1-dozen eggs. That translates to $150 at the official exchange rate. - Schiff Gold
Yet something interesting is occurring in Venezuela at ground level outside the rise of black markets and government alternative price controls.  And that is that physical gold and silver are both superseding the soaring price inflation tied to paper currencies, and according to a missionary who lives and works in Venezuela, a single ounce of silver can buy enough food for a family to last three months, and an ounce of gold can buy you a house.
Tom Cloud: We got an incredible email this morning from one of our clients who's brother in law is a missionary down in Venezuela.  And he was telling us that in Venezuela, once ounce of silver will buy you food for three or four months... one ounce of silver.  And an ounce of gold will buy you a house. 
So we're starting to see what I've talking about and predicting for over a year, that we're going to see these countries in Central and South America where everything is going to collapse and if you don't have gold and silver, you literally have nothing. - FTM Daily

Price inflation for dining out may make $15 minimum wage laws moot

30 years ago, dining out for the average American family was a once a week experience, with working parents adding to this total with an occasional lunch break at a restaurant.  However, the past three decades have seen this paradigm completely turn around, and in 2015, people spent more money eating out than they did in buying groceries since the convenience of cost was worth the experience.
Yet this trend may have quickly reached a peak here in 2016 as the growing movement of mandatory $15 per hour minimum wage demands being coupled with huge jumps in price inflation have seen the affordability of dining out now much greater than the cost of eating at home.

Who needs Bernie? Americans spend more on taxes than on food, clothing, and shelter

Independent/Democratic candidate for President Bernie Sanders has been running on a platform of not just tax the rich, but pretty much tax everyone more to pay for his $18 trillion program of full blown Socialism.  But what the old man from Vermont who never worked an honest job in his entire life is failing to see is that as Americans rush towards tax day less than a week from now, they already give away to government agencies more in taxes than they spend each year on food, clothing, and shelter…
Combined.
This year, Tax Freedom Day falls on April 24, or 114 days into the year (excluding Leap Day).
Americans will pay $3.3 trillion in federal taxes and $1.6 trillion in state and local taxes, for a total bill of almost $5.0 trillion, or 31 percent of the nation’s income.
Americans will collectively spend more on taxes in 2016 than they will on food, clothing, and housing combined.
That last statistic is a huge sore point with me.
How can anyone argue that we are not a socialist society when the government takes more of our money than we spend on food, clothing and housing combined?
What they are doing to us is deeply wrong and it is fundamentally un-American. -Theeconomiccollapseblog

Putin counters TPP corporate protections by proposing new export industry of non-GMO foods

One of the biggest threats to the global economy is the U.S. led Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), and the soon to be Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TPIP) which has as just one of their draconian strictures, the giving og sovereign protections to food companies that manufacture and sell GMO products.  And under these trade agreements, nations that sign onto them will forever be restricted from passing legislation hindering the sale of Genetically Modified foods as well as demanding labels that provide the public information on whether the food they are buying is GMO or not.
And perhaps in an interesting global public relations move by Russian President Vladimir Putin, on Dec. 3 Putin proposed a new export industry that would provide the global community with food that is non-GMO, and in direct opposition to Western products that have been proven to be toxic in lab tests to consumers and test animals.

Despite continuing ‘recovery’ propaganda, 14% of all Americans unable to afford enough food

When economic data is continually spun to protect a political agenda rather than performing the function of showing where actual problems lie, then you will always have contradictions that counter the intended message.  For example, how can a nation like the United States have only a 5.1% unemployment rate when it has been verified that nearly 93 million Americans within the age range of working years are not counted as either employed, or receiving benefits befitting the unemployed?  Or how inflation is denoted as being less than 2%, but the cost of food, rent, education, and healthcare have all skyrocketed by a minimum of 30% over the past five years?
The answers of course lie in the fact that the perception of what is the economy has moved from production and earnings to that of investments and Wall Street, and why the line between the Ivory Tower and the ghetto is like that of a dystopian novel.  For as the 1% are now far richer than at anytime in human history, 14 times that number can’t even afford to eat nutritious food to sustain even the meagerest of lifestyles.

20% of ALL AMERICANS Are Having TROUBLE GETTING FOOD & BASIC NECESSITIES

With recent SNAP figures showing that over 100 million, or nearly 1/3 of all Americans, receive some form of food stamp assistance, it is very difficult to believe economic analysts who say that our financial system is in recovery, and getting better for everyone.  Yet even with all the billions of dollars in government assistance to help the public, a new poll out on Sept. 12 shows that 20% of the population is experiencing trouble getting food and basic necessities to survive on.

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.

Forget GMO as investors seek to make future food products from a printer

Science has proven many things, and even assisted in making life better for people around the world.  But the underlying truth about science today is that over 70% of all research is funded by corporations and the government.  Each having their own agendas, and each seeking to profit from their best interests.

This is why the FDA has fought tooth and nail to not only keep scientifically destructive GMO products from being labelled on food, but to go to courts against farmers themselves who desire to use nature over science in planting and harvesting.

But GMO is not the only research being done to grow frankenfoods and replace them in the American diets.  A new grant is being made which intended to create food and meat substances from special 3-D printers which are revolutionizing the world of manufacturing.

3D printing has been used to create running shoes, medical implants, and, to the delight of firearm enthusiasts, a .22 caliber handgun. So why not a 3D-printed steak for the grill?
Billionaire investor Peter Thiel's philanthropic foundation plans to announce today a six-figure grant for bioprinted meat, part of an ambitious plan to bring to the world's dinner tables a set of technologies originally developed for creating medical-grade tissues.
The recipient of the Thiel Foundation's grant, a Columbia, Mo.-based startup named Modern Meadow, is pitching bioprinted meat as a more environmentally-friendly way to satisfy a natural human craving for animal protein. - Cnet

Science fiction has for decades given doomsday scenarios of the future of food sources in a growing world population.  From human consumption in movies like the Matrix and Soylent Green, to computer generated foods from molecular conversion in Star Trek episodes, the rise of science is no longer about improving natures playground of planting and harvesting, but moving food from the farm into the lab which has a long history of dire results to human kind.

Corn losses due to drought will have wide effects on the entire food chain

Corn is one of the most abundant crops in America's farming complex.  Its uses stem from not just human consumables on the dinner table, but in the production of many processed foods, to animal feed, and even green energy.

So a slowdown in production of corn will automatically have wide ranging effects not just for food and export, but in the thousands of industries that require large amounts to produce items in the global economy.




Who knew the next black swan would be deep fried? The biggest piece of imminent food inflation news over the past months, coupled with what is shaping up to be another record hot summer (for the best tracking of real-time electricity consumption primarily for cooling news we recommend the following PJM RT tracker of power load), has been the collapse in the corn harvest due to the worst drought since 1988 as 56% of America is in drought conditions. Today, the US just added some burning oil to the popcorn by cutting the corn-crop forecast by 12% to 13 billion bushels on expectations of a 13.5 billion harvest. Then again, who needs corn, when you can have cake? - Zerohedge

Bankruptcy filed for the makers of Pink Slime food additive

Sometimes, there is justice and karma in the wide wide world.  Approximately a week after the mainstream media reported on the intrusion of the food additive known by its slang term 'pink slime' into a large portion of the American food supply, its corporate maker, AFA Foods, is declaring bankruptcy.



In the first of two major bankruptcy stories du jour (the next one coming up shortly), we learn that AFA Foods, best known for being the maker of "pink slime", and a portfolio company of labor unions and Clinton afficionado Ron Burkle and his PE firm Yucaipa, has just filed for bankruptcy. The reason? The sudden public realization what pink slime is, and just how prevalent it is - perhaps it is best to think of it as the Bernie Madoff of the food industry - it was always there, yet it took a wholesale shift in public awareness and consciousness for the firm to realize it would have been prudent to come up with a slightly different name for its ground-beef product. As for whether or not the company is going to the pink sheets, well no. But one thing is certain: the management team is about to get a pink slip. - Zerohedge

Americans to feel the real angst of inflation with rising alcohol prices

Oil and gasoline inflation?  Food inflation?  Try rising inflation for alcohol.

As in the Great Depression and Prohibition, the desire to consume alcohol transcends many ethical and physical needs in the lives of many Americans.  This is why the rising cost to buy beer, liquor, and wine may have a much larger consequence over time than rising prices in food, which the government is more than happy to subsidize.

But if there is one thing that is sure to kindle the revolutionary spirits it is the soaring price of booze. As it just so happens, ships are parked in the Boston harbor with crates of Grey Goose prepped for tossage overboard as we speak. As the following chart of alcoholic beverage inflation indicates, courtesy of John Lohman, January saw the biggest month over month spike in booze inflation in 20 years. In other words, about 90% of all traders alive today have never seen a bigger jump in liquor inflation in their lives. - Zerohedge



So drink up America!  Or better yet, go invest in that beer making device or personal still since the price of food commodities are at the moment cheaper than the finished products.

EU seeks to research insects as new food source for bankrupt economies

Leave it to the EU to think like elite liberals when it comes to feeding the masses in the wake of their banking crisis.  A new program funded by the European Union will seek to determine the protein attributes of insects, and research ways to make them a staple food source for the nations seeking nourishment.

The EU will spend three million Euros to research 'the potential of insects as an alternative source of protein.'

Research projects will be selected this year.

'While many insects are regarded as pests, the UN's Food and Agriculture authority is interested in promoting edible insects as a highly sustainable source of nutrition.'

Some worms contain three times as much protein as beef per ounce, while four crickets have as much calcium as a glass of milk. - Daily Mail


While the French have been partakers in snail cuisine for centuries, the rest of civilized Europe has sustained their health on standard agricultural products for most of their existance.  Perhaps then, the EU's new program is a foreshadowing of a much greater segregation between the haves and the have nots, and who is allowed to eat what when food becomes scarce in the bankrupt countries.
