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?

IMF pumping out declines in global growth forecasts like central banks print money

On Jan. 19, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) cut its forecast for global growth for the third time in less than a year, validating that the largest financial centers in the world have little idea on what is actually occurring within the global economy.
The IMF’s cut follows today’s announced decline in China’s GDP, and last Friday’s Atlanta Fed announcement that they were cutting estimates on U.S. GDP growth for the quarter ending December 2015.

Recession, deflation, and shipping that has ground to a dead halt

Earlier today, Jeff Berwick, also known as the Dollar Vigilante, reported a monumental announcement from one of his sources in the shipping industry that exports and sea transport had suddenly ground to a dead halt.  This of course validates the ongoing theme that the world is in a global recession, and that central bank money printing has long past its point of diminishing returns.

To double down on Berwick's information, another source created a graphic from real time shipping itineraries and came up with something that is not only historic, but utterly heard of since perhaps the 15th century.

No commercial shipping taking place at all in a given period anywhere around the world.

As noted in this graphic, not a single commercial vessel has left port to carry cargo to another destination.
Last week, I received news from a contact who is friends with one of the biggest billionaire shipping families in the world.  He told me they had no ships at sea right now, because operating them meant running at a loss.This weekend, reports are circulating saying much the same thing: The North Atlantic has little or no cargo ships traveling in its waters. Instead, they are anchored. Unmoving. Empty. 
You can see one such report here.  According to it, 
Commerce between Europe and North America has literally come to a halt. For the first time in known history, not one cargo ship is in-transit in the North Atlantic between Europe and North America. All of them (hundreds) are either anchored offshore or in-port. NOTHING is moving.This has never happened before. It is a horrific economic sign; proof that commerce is literally stopped. 
We checked and it appears to show no ships in transit anywhere in the world.  We aren’t experts on shipping, however, so if you have a better site or source to track this apparent phenomenon, please let us know. - Dollar Vigilante

At this point, we await CNBC with baited breath to report an actual financial news story like this one.

We are still waiting...

Global trade study validates the recessionary decline in Baltic Dry Index

One of the most important, but usually least talked about indicators that denotes the strength of the economy is the Baltic Dry Index (BDI).  This is a measurement that tracks shipping costs and quantities and is a strong signal for whether trade and exports are rising, or in decline.
And a new study out on Aug. 28 by the World Trade Monitor has now validated the recessionary numbers of the BDI, and shows trade within the global economy is now down to levels not seen since the Great Recession period of 2009.
