Why does the USDA need Submachine Guns?????

Dept. of Agriculture Orders Submachine Guns with 30 Round Magazines
A May 7th solicitation by the U.S. Department of Agriculture seeks “the commercial acquisition of submachine guns [in] .40 Cal. S&W.”
According to the solicitation, the Dept. of Agriculture wants the guns to have an “ambidextrous safety, semiautomatic or 2 round [bursts] trigger group, Tritium night sights front and rear, rails for attachment of flashlight (front under fore group) and scope (top rear), stock collapsible or folding,” and a “30 rd. capacity” magazine.
They also want the submachine guns to have a “sling,” be “lightweight,” and have an “oversized trigger guard for gloved operation.”
The solicitation directs “all responsible and/or interested sources… [to] submit their company name, point of contact, and telephone.” Companies that submit information in a “timely” fashion “shall be considered by the agency for contact to determine weapon suitability.” (Dept. of Agriculture Orders Submachine Guns with 30 Round Magazines; By AWR HAWKINS; Big Govt. – Breitbart.com; 5/15/14)

Exclusive: Afghanistan suffers trade blow as China halts dollar deals with its banks
Sent: 5/23/2014 8:41 AM
(Reuters) – Chinese banks have halted dollar transactions with most Afghan commercial banks, the central bank governor said on Thursday, making it difficult for businesses to pay for imports from one of Afghanistan’s biggest trading partners.
“China is a major country that was handling those bank transfers, and now they have told the banks they can’t do it,” governor Noorullah Delawari told Reuters.
The impact on business had been felt immediately, he said.
That has prompted banks from various countries to halt trade with its commercial banks.
The Chinese move was part of a trend that was making it increasingly difficult for the banks to execute international transactions, Delawari said.
The Afghan government’s failure to pass key measures means that it could in June be blacklisted by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), an international body that sets standards on how countries combat money laundering.
Banks have been struggling since FATF threatened Afganistan (sic) with the punishment early this year.

Afghanistan Banks Escape Blacklisting
June 29, 2014 5:43 p.m. ET
KABUL—Afghanistan’s fragile financial system won a reprieve after an intergovernmental body said it wouldn’t blacklist the country for failing to meet standards to combat money laundering and terrorist financing.
The Financial Action Task Force, a global body that develops anti-money-laundering guidelines, said Friday that Afghanistan had taken steps toward meeting international standards. But it warned that the country needed to implement measures to avoid landing on its blacklist in October.
“If Afghanistan does not bring into force CFT [combating financing of terrorism] legislation and issue the necessary regulations compliant with the international standards by the October 2014 FATF meetings, the FATF will call upon its members and other jurisdictions to consider the ML/TF [money laundering/terrorism financing] risks arising from the deficiencies in Afghanistan,” the statement read.

Researchers at Harvard University announced today that they have found what appears to be a message from God written inside the human genome.
In a little-explored section of non-coding DNA, a team of top geneticists discovered a 22-word snippet of ancient Aramaic in which God confirms his existence and his role in creating life on Earth.
The stunning finding represents nearly irrefutable evidence of God’s existence and his role in creating the process of evolution by natural selection.
The message was discovered when researchers noticed strange mathematical patterns appearing within a certain section of the genome.
“Hello my children. This Yahweh, the one true Lord. You have found creation’s secret. Now share it peacefully with the world.”
For Heaven’s Sake
“We knew the patterns weren’t naturally occurring,” explains Charles Watson, the lead scientist on the project, “but we couldn’t come up with any convincing explanation for them.
Yahweh is the biblical name for the Judeo-Christian god.
Inherit The Earth
The findings will be published in the journal Nature next month, and are expected to provoke the biggest scientific controversy since Charles Darwin published his theory of natural selection in 1859.
“Before this discovery I was a committed atheist. Now I’m a devout Christian. This is exactly the kind of proof I needed to ease my doubts.” (Message From God Found Hidden Inside DNA Sequence; The Daily Current; 2/1/13)
[Blog Editor: This article is a joy in that science found scientific evidence that the Judeo/Christian God is the Creator, but it goes out of its way to proclaim the find does not disprove Darwin’s Theory of Evolution. Then the article finishes with a short snippet I believed at the Christian Right.]
However, other Christian denominations have a different interpretation of the scientists’ findings.
“Clearly this means our God is the one true God and that we should exterminate rival religions,” says Frank Page, leader of the conservative Southern Baptist Convention. “Now that we have truth on our side, I think it’s time we start a new crusade.” READ ENTIRETY (Ibid.)
[Blog Editor: I find it interesting that President/CEO Page was in the process of writing and publishing a book relating to the 2009 suicide death of his daughter in the same year as this genome discovery. I found lots of webpages utilizing The Daily Current quote of Frank Page calling for a new crusade to “exterminate rival religions” but no place offering context or comment on the Frank Page quote. If indeed President Page called for the “extermination” of rival religions he has missed the point of the Great Commission of the Lord Jesus Christ. The only time that Christians should unite to wage wars is in defense of the faith from another Religion or secular backed ideology attempting to exterminate Christians. Otherwise the only duty Christians should offensively act upon is to go into all the World to share the Good News that Jesus Christ has come to deliver humanity from the control of ungodly darkness that invaded earthly creation from Adam’s Fall by surrendering to Satan.]

This administration is coming apart at the seams, Look at all the scandals and people they are throwing under the bus, it’s a MESS of crimes and injustices across the society of all peoples while favoring the declared enemy of the state!!!
Former federal prosecutor Andrew C. McCarthy, who says President Obama is guilty of numerous high crimes and misdemeanors that warrant his removal from office, is proposing seven specific articles of impeachment for which he says the evidence is very clear.
McCarthy is best known as the lead prosecutor in the cases against the “blind sheikh,” Omar Abdel Rahman, and 11 conspirators behind the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and plots against other New York City landmarks. McCarthy is now with the National Review Institute. His new book is, “Faithless Execution: Building the Political Case for Obama’s Impeachment.” In the book, he says the case for impeachment is solid, although he does not believe there is enough political will in the country to move forward at this time.
Nonetheless, McCarthy offers seven indictments, beginning with “The President’s Willful Refusal to Execute the Laws Faithfully and Usurpation of the Legislative Authority of Congress.” Within that article, McCarthy cites Obama’s illegal and unilateral changing of federal statutes, from several components within Obamacare to scrapping codified welfare work requirements to amending immigration laws and enacting policies Congress did not approve.
He also alleges Obama failed to execute laws ranging from layoff notifications to the Clean Air Act to nuclear waste and Medicare.
“From the first days of Obama’s presidency in 2009 with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, that’s this cabal of 57 Islamic government including the Palestinian Authority, they’ve been working on a resolution to curtail American free speech rights in deference to Shariah blasphemy standards. They have essentially struck a human-rights resolution that makes it unlawful to engage in expression that could incite hostility to religion. Of course, there’s only one religion we’re talking about in this context,” he said.
“Proving that there is an Obama administration mandate that attacks religious liberty, it’s not difficult to prove these things have happened, and I don’t even think it’s hard to prove these are high crimes and misdemeanors,” McCarthy said. “Are they serious enough? Does the public think this is egregious enough to remove the president from power?” READ ENTIRETY (Prosecutor: Top 7 reasons to impeach Obama: By GREG COROMBOS; WND; 6/10/14 7:37 PM)
In an excellent article yesterday by Kerry Picket of the Washington Times on the influence of Muslim groups on changing the language used in national security documents and protocol (the whole article is worth the read), Picket reports that last October several dozen top US Muslim groups sent a letter to White House “Assassination Czar” John Brennan demanding that the Obama administration establish a task force with these same organizations to “purge” (their word) US government counter-terrorism training of views them deem offensive.
By 2011, Obama’s Counterterrorism and Deputy national security advisor John Brennan was urged by Muslim, Arab, and South Asian organizations to begin an “independent, effective investigation into the federal government’s training of its agents and other law enforcement” and institute a “purge” of any material that the undersigned organizations deemed unacceptable.
In an October 19, 2011 letter to Mr. Brennan, the groups criticize for anti- Muslim bias the FBI’s 2011 training manual, the books at the FBI library in FBI training academy in Quantico, Virginia, specific FBI trainers and analysts, and a report made by Army Command and General Staff at the Fort Leavenworth School of Advanced Military Studies.
The letter makes references to a September 2011 Wired Magazine piece by Spencer Ackerman. The letter was also sent to Attorney General Eric Holder, Department of Homeland Security Sec. Janet Napolitano, Sec. of Defense Leon Panetta, FBI Director Robert Mueller, National Security Advisor Tom Donilon, and Deputy National Security Advisor Denis McDonough.
According to a report on the meeting by Neil Munro of the Daily Caller, several Muslim group leaders called for creating criminal and civil penalties for anyone advocating positions they deem offensive:
Purges, blacklists, re-education, and book banning. Sounds like a recipe for a Muslim Khmer Rouge.
Here’s the Muslim groups’ demand letter in its entirety:
‘Barack Obama made a briefly reported “gaffe” where he said he’d been in “all 57 states and had one to go, the 58th.”’ (Jerry Todd; Western Journalism)
So WAS his “57 States” remark a signal that all was well in the world of Sharia where its 58th member isn’t too far from joining its brethren?
… Now to the first week of June 2012 when I attended a talk by John Guandolo at a patriotic ACT! For an American veteran’s dinner.
Guandolo is an expert on the Muslim Brotherhood with an enviable service record from the Naval Academy, Marines, and Army Ranger School to the Washington Office of the FBI – Counterterrorism Unit. He currently has a security company that advises and trains police, military, and governmental agencies.
We learned the depths of infiltration of the Muslim Brotherhood (Al Qaeda is actually a subset) into all aspects of American society – including cutting off any (even Fox) news that might expose their agenda. He meticulously outlined the names of the perpetrators (dead and alive) and myriad universities, departments of government, and military agencies the MB has infiltrated. He flashed on the screen – The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). It has 57 member states! Two of us asked, “Is that Obama’s 57 states that we thought was a gaffe in 2008?” Guandolo responded, “You said it, I didn’t” and went on.
We are all familiar with Obama’s sympathies toward, if not belief in, Islam and his confrontations with Christian doctrine and sensitivities. Was his “57 States” remark a signal that all was well in the world of Sharia where its 58th member isn’t too far from joining its brethren? He also stated there is not one thing the MB infects societies with that does not comply with Sharia, including its American incursions. Military and government officials at all levels take a solemn oath to “protect and defend the US Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic.” Sharia and the Constitution cannot co-exist. Period! Are Obama officials in the Military, Homeland Security, HEW, and attendant czars simply useful idiots or co-conspirators? Treason by default? Guandolo showed the overriding element that allows the whole MB program to work is Political Correctness – which I define as “the manifestation of the spirit of Antichrist!” How appropriate.

Look who said he considers the US Constitution Islamically Compliant and the USA an Islamic Country…
“I do consider the United States of America an Islamic country with an Islamically compliant constitution.”
[Blog Editor: The Frontpagemag.com article is written by Robert Spencer an expert on nefarious Islam related to Mohamed Elibiary in a largely tongue-in-cheek essay about Elibiary’s beliefs and U.S. government infiltration.]
It could be a canny new Homeland Security strategy: end the jihad against the U.S. by surrendering to it. If Elibiary can convince the Islamic jihadists who are waging jihad warfare against the United States that America is already “an Islamic country with an Islamically compliant constitution,” they will have nothing left to fight for, at least against us, since the goal of jihad is to impose Islamic law wherever possible, and ultimately over the world entire.
Also: will the payment of the jizya, the poll tax that the Qur’an (9:29) demands be paid by the subjugated non-Muslims, be written into the existing tax code, or will it become a new layer of the Washington bureaucracy, bringing with it a new raft of forms for beleaguered American taxpayers, and a new raft of thorny problems for H & R Block? And what of the same verse’s command that the subjugated people display “willing submission” to the Muslims, and “feel themselves subdued”? A huge new bureaucratic apparatus will be needed to ensure that non-Muslims are denied equality of rights with Muslims in every way possible, and the civil rights community will have to turn on a dime to trying to secure equal rights for all citizens to working to deny them for non-Muslims and women.
Counter-terror researcher Patrick Poole reported at PJ Media in 2011 that “Elibiary may have been given access to a sensitive database of state and local intelligence reports, and then allegedly shopped some of those materials to a media outlet.” According to Poole, Elibiary approached “a left-leaning media outlet” with reports marked For Official Use Only that he said demonstrated rampant “Islamophobia” in the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS). The media outlet declined to do a story, but what was Elibiary doing shopping them Official Use Only documents in the first place?
There have been questions about Elibiary’s true allegiances for years. He was one of the speakers at a December 2004 conference in Dallas titled “A Tribute to the Great Islamic Visionary.” The visionary in question was none other than the founding father of the Islamic Republic of Iran, the Ayatollah Khomeini.

Rashad Hussain – Special Envoy to the Organizationon of the Islamic Conference (OIC). In September 2004, Hussain played a role in the Muslim Students Association’s annual conference, which was founded by Muslim Brotherhood in 1963 and is also listed as one the group’s fronts in its own documents.
President Obama has chosen Rashad Hussain to be his special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference, a post originally created by the Bush Administration in 2008. Hussain’s past association with Muslim Brotherhood-connected entities raises major questions about the type of outreach he envisions for the Muslim world.
The Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Report took a look at Hussain’s official biography and found several concerning affiliations. The first is that in October 2000, Hussain spoke at a conference sponsored by the Association of Muslim Social Scientists, which was listed in an internal Muslim Brotherhood document as one of “our organizations and the organizations of our friends,” and the Prince Alwaleed Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding of Georgetown University, which receives Saudi funding and is directed by prominent Muslim Brotherhood advocate, John Esposito.
In September 2004, Hussain played a role in the Muslim Students Association’s annual conference, which was founded by Muslim Brotherhood in 1963 and is also listed as one the group’s fronts in its own documents. Since then, many of its nearly 600 college chapters have engaged in extremism and the group closely collaborates with the other Brotherhood fronts. For example, MSA was part of an umbrella organization called the American Muslim Taskforce that led a campaign against the FBI’s use of informants in mosques and accused the agency of “anti-Muslim activity.” Several Brotherhood affiliates are in this coalition including the Muslim-American Society, the Islamic Circle of North America, the Islamic Society of North America, the Muslim Public Affairs Council and the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
At this conference, Hussain spoke alongside the daughter of Professor Sami Al-Arian, who was convicted of being a key leader of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist group and later admitted to being a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. Hussain also defended Al-Arian and described his prosecution as being a “politically-motivated persecution.” The network of Brotherhood-affiliated groups have consistently been on his side throughout the entire ordeal and celebrated his release.
Hussain’s view on the cause of terrorism is important to note as it will play a significant role in the Obama Administration’s outreach to the Muslim world. He quoted a study that concluded that “The primary cause of broad-based anger and anti-Americanism is not a clash of civilizations but the perceived effect of U.S. foreign policy in the Muslim world.” In this statement, it appears that he believes that terrorism is the product of opposition to foreign policy, rather than the product of a politico-religious totalitarian ideology, which explains his opposition to terms like “Islamic terrorism.”

Obama is Destabilizing the Middle East on Purpose to Inflate Energy Prices and Lower the Rate of Consumption to Affect Climate Change Policy

This will destabilize the Dollar Priced Oil market sending Energy Prices skyrocketing so that Nationalization of the market in the USA will mean controlling the rate of consumption thereby effecting the CO2 emission rate and fitting the Policy to reduce Climate Change.
As Energy and other Consumer Prices rise and restrict Individual Freedoms, civil unrest is predicted to break out and the DoD is Preparing for the situation see this:
The Pentagon is pumping millions of dollars annually into programs that set out to explore the factors responsible for creating civil unrest around the world, The Guardian reported this week.
An article by journalist Nafeez Ahmed published by the paper on Thursday this week acknowledges that the little-known United States Department of Defense program — the Minerva Research Initiative — has since 2008 partnered with universities “to improve DoD’s basic understanding of the social, cultural, behavioral and political forces that shape regions of the world of strategic importance to the US.”
According to the program’s website, it has recently awarded millions of dollars to be divvied up among 12 proposals from colleges that have launched projects relevant to the Pentagon’s interest, including a Cornell University study called “Tracking Critical-Mass Outbreaks in Social Contagions” as well as others involving state stability, social disequilibrium and, in one instance, “Understanding American Muslims Converts in the Contexts of Security and Society.” The funding all comes entirely from the Dept. of Defense.
“The total funds awarded for this set of projects is expected to be around six million dollars in the first year and $17 million over three years,” the Minerva Initiative acknowledged on its website.
Writing for The Guardian, Ahmed investigated these programs further and determined that many are directly involved in mass protests and other acts of civil unrest witnessed by the world in recent years. …
“The Department of Defense takes seriously its role in the security of the United States, its citizens, and US allies and partners,” Dr Erin Fitzgerald, the Minerva Initiative’s director, told The Guardian. “While every security challenge does not cause conflict, and every conflict does not involve the US military, Minerva helps fund basic social science research that helps increase the Department of Defense’s understanding of what causes instability and insecurity around the world. By better understanding these conflicts and their causes beforehand, the Department of Defense can better prepare for the dynamic future security environment.” READ ENTIRETY (RT: Pentagon spending millions to prepare for mass civil unrest; By Adem Altan; Russia Today (RT) via 2012: What’s the ‘real’ truth? 6/14/14 – originally published 6/13/14)

We are well on our way to seeing a collapse of our Economic and Financial Independence at the hands of these KINGS in Washington , and the transformation of the 50 Star flag into a ONE STAR FLAG!!!!!
Full story at:
Russia challenged U.S. power at the IMF well before Moscow’s annexation of Crimea last month, a move that raised diplomatic tensions and prompted the leading Western powers to impose economic sanctions on Russia.
China has used more cautious diplomacy, even as it explores alternative financial aid mechanisms that eventually could make the IMF obsolete. China’s extensive loans and assistance to other developing countries already dwarf the aid provided by the World Bank and the IMF.
Even nations with historically friendly ties to the U.S. are losing patience. India’s finance minister recently noted that the congressional impasse reflects badly not only on Washington but also on the whole economic order set up by the U.S. and its Western allies after World War II.
“This is perhaps the first visible failure of the G-20. This has reduced the credibility of the G-20,” India’s economic affairs secretary, Arvind Mayaram, told reporters at the G-20 meeting in Sydney. Implementation of the 2010 reforms is “vital for the credibility, legitimacy and effectiveness of the IMF,” he said.
IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde continues to insist that there is little she can do without U.S. approval. Analysts point out that European countries, which continue to dominate the IMF’s board of directors and stand to lose the most clout under the reforms, have been happy to let the U.S. block the legislation even while publicly deploring the congressional delays. While American voting power would be mostly undiluted under the reforms, the greater power given to emerging countries would come largely at the expense of smaller European countries that would lose voting shares.

Peak Resources brings you an overview of the NASA model for climate change if nuclear war were to break out. For most of us, the thought of nuclear war sounds incredibly wrong, there could very well be a positive side. In the face of runaway global warming, nuclear war could actually reverse the process.
One of the great fears of the war of words that existed between the United States and the USSR was plunged into a nuclear winter that would occur if words failed. The conflict, had it escalated would likely have emptied the arsenals of nuclear bombs on both sides of the pond. The result of those nuclear explosions would have sent plumes of dust into the atmosphere, created infernos in cities and forests, which would have added ash and smoke to the environment.
Geologists estimate that the asteroid that struck the earth in the Yucatan Peninsula, which caused Chixulub crater to form would have had the impact of 150 Hiroshima bombs. This is the same asteroid that likely finished off the dinosaurs. The impact of that meteor created much of the same type of events that nuclear weapons can create today.
Nuclear war today
Even in today’s world, the threat from nuclear weapons and nuclear war are real.
During the cold war, only a handful of countries had nuclear capabilities. Today, the list of nations with nuclear weapons is much longer, and the players are not as easily controlled. NASA modeled the events of nuclear war to see what the effects would be.
The outcome was very similar to the events described above. On earth, the effects would be long term famine, months and years without adequate sunlight, and disease. In today’s climate, global warming is occurring along a predictable level, but a nuclear war would cause temperatures on earth to decrease dramatically over the ten years following such a disaster.
Where does this information lead us

The New Industrialization of America
The realization is finally beginning to dawn on many that the dollar may not have much time left as the world’s primary reserve currency. The G20 deadline for the US to pass the IMF 2010 Reforms is quickly approaching as both NATO and Russia exchange equal threats over the Ukraine.
The Ukrainian Defense Ministry is warning that Russia could invade the eastern region of the country at any time. Pro-Russian protestors are taking control of government buildings and the world watches as one major component of the problem/reaction/solution process unfolds before our eyes.
When it comes to the IMF Governance and Quota Reforms, the United States is the odd man out. With even Britain now calling on America to pass the reforms, the world can only shrug at the wanton and contrived, and most likely scripted, reluctance of Congress to pass supporting legislation to the reforms.

Data published by the New York Stock Exchange at the end of March shows margin debt – at an all-time high!!!!!
NEW YORK – Borrowing money from stock brokers to buy stocks has now hit an all-time high, triggering fears of a downward market adjustment and a collapse of the brokerage-made loan market investors typically use to fuel continued bull market growth.
Data published by the New York Stock Exchange at the end of March shows margin debt – the loans made by stock brokers to permit investor clients to buy stocks on credit – has reached a record high of $466 billion, approaching for the first time a half-trillion dollars.
Analysis of NYSE margin debt shows previous peaks have foreshadowed severe market corrections.
It happened in the summer of 2000 just before the dot.com stock market crash and in the summer of 2007, preceding the bursting of the housing bubble that caused the dramatic economic downturn that began in 2008.
Stock market technical analysts have recently drawn attention to the rising level of margin debt. They note that when, as now, the margin debt drops below its 12-month moving average a strong signal is being given to investors to get out of the stock market because “investors are using less of the rocket fuel (i.e., margin debt) needed to keep stock prices artificially high.”
The fundamental problem with using margin debt to buy stocks on credit is … READ THE REST (Fears of market collapse amid record margin debt: Money borrowed to buy stocks nears half-trillion; By Jerome R. Corsi; WND; 4/8/14 8:43 PM)
A New World Tax Regime
Sent: 4/10/2014 12:11 AM
To anyone who even casually monitors international agencies — such as the UN, the OECD, and the IMF — it will come as no surprise that those agencies have long wanted stable sources of funding that they could count on, rather than relying on handouts from governments around the world. But it would likely come as a surprise to most that we will likely see the initial operation of a world tax regime to fund international entities by 2015.
The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) — a 34-member (presently) international economic organization that works to influence world financial operations — openly announced plans to advance the longtime socialist-backed dream of a planetary taxation regime. The plans call for legitimate governments and dictatorships worldwide to share all private financial data on citizens. It is all openly inspired by, and modeled on, Obama’s Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) aimed at coercing banks and governments around the world into reporting all accounts and assets held by “U.S. persons” to the IRS. (Click here to see related FATCA article.) And that, experts say, in conjunction with other related machinations, such as an emerging plan to force businesses to pay equally high corporate taxes in all jurisdictions of the world rather than setting up shop in lower-tax nations, will lay the foundation upon which to build a “World Tax Organization.”
In mid-February, in fact, the OECD officially unveiled its plan informally called GATCA (Global Account Tax Compliance Act) by analysts. Calling its ploy to put the final nail in the coffin for financial privacy “game changing,” the tax-funded OECD said it would require governments to collect massive amounts of sensitive personal information on individuals from banks and other financial institutions in their jurisdictions. “The reality will be that for the automatic exchange of information rules should cover what kind of information is to be exchanged, how often, who should collect the information, to whom it should be sent, and in what format,” claimed Pascal Saint-Amans, director of the OECD Centre for Tax Policy and Administration, speaking as if the plot were already a done deal.
Once gathered, the vast troves of private data would be automatically exchanged between all participating governments and dictatorships. “You collect the data, you put it in the pipe and it goes to the other party,” said Saint-Amans, who, as could probably be expected, pays no taxes on his bloated tax-funded salary.
Autocrats “R” Us
Over 40 governments, which the Paris-based OECD misleadingly refers to as “countries,” have already committed to the controversial scheme. In a “joint statement,” participating governments celebrated the planetary plot, implying … READ THE REST (A New World Tax Regime; By Alex Newman; The New American; 4/8/14 11:30)

Oh the Irony of it all!!!!!!!!! Look how the Eugenicists try and SPIN this Truth about Cancer cures!!!!!!!!
DCA Cancer Cure
Claim: Researchers have found a simple cure for cancer, but major pharmaceutical companies are not interested.
Example: [Collected via e-mail, May 2011]
Canadian researchers find a simple cure for cancer, but major pharmaceutical companies are not interested.
Researchers at the University of Alberta, in Edmonton, Canada have cured cancer last week, yet there is a little ripple in the news or in TV. It is a simple technique using very basic drug. The method employs dichloroacetate, which is currently used to treat metabolic disorders. So, there is no concern of side effects or about their long term effects.
Origins: In 2007, medical researchers at the University of Alberta reported that dichloroacetate (DCA), a relatively simple compound, had showed promise for treating cancer in rodent models, and the university’s DCA Research Team announced they would begin clinical trials of DCA on human patients in the spring of 2007. One of the members of that research team, Dr. Evangelos Michelakis, expressed concern that because DCA was not patented, the potential profit margins in marketing it would likely be small, and thus it might be difficult to obtain funding for DCA clinical trials from private investors:
Unfortunately, this preliminary information soon led to hyperbolic claims that a “simple cure for cancer” had been found but a lack of interest on the part of pharmaceutical companies was preventing it from reaching cancer patients, prompting some desperate cancer sufferers to seek it out for themselves from unscrupulous vendors:
Despite investigators’ concerns about potential difficulties in obtaining funding, DCA studies have been undertaken, and in 2010 the substance was in the news again after researchers published a paper reporting their results with testing DCA on glioblastoma tumors:
As Dr. J. Leonard Lichtenfeld, Deputy Chief Medical Officer for the national office of the American Cancer Society, wrote of that last study in 2010, DCA studies appear to be worth pursuing, but the substance is still far from being proved an effective treatment for any type of cancer, much less a cancer “cure”:
How would I characterize this report?
Simply stated, the science is intriguing and I believe is something to be pursued both in the lab and in the clinic. BUT, and this is a big but, it is not a cure for glioblastoma or any other cancer based on these results.
My concern is that this paper is … READ THE REST (DCA Cancer Cure; By Snopes.com; Last Updated – 3/20/12, Urban Legends Reference Pages © 1995-2014; Editor: Apparently Snopes is a stickler about copyright – They require permission)
Let’s consider that we are growing an economic sector that Promotes DEATH for PROFIT and that Obamacare is now in place to even go one step further and limit that industries growth at end of life!!!!!!!!
On April 12, 1955, the first successful polio vaccine was administered to almost 2 million schoolchildren around the country. Its discoverer, University of Pittsburgh medical researcher Jonas Salk, was interviewed on CBS Radio that evening.
“Who owns the patent on this vaccine?” radio host Edward R. Murrow asked him.
“Well, the people, I would say,” Salk famously replied. “There is no patent. Could you patent the sun?”
In a world where the cancer drug Avastin — patented by the pharmaceutical company Genentech/Roche — costs patients about $80,000 per year without having been proven to extend lives, Salk’s selflessness has made him the hero of many medical researchers today.
One of Salk’s admirers is Evangelos Michelakis, a cancer researcher at the University of Alberta who, three years ago, discovered that a common, nontoxic chemical known as DCA, short for dichloroacetate, seems to inhibit the growth of cancerous tumors in mice. Michelakis’ initial findings garnered much fanfare at the time and have recirculated on the Web again this week, in large part because of a blog post (“Scientists cure cancer, but no one takes notice”) that ignited fresh debate with people wondering if it was true.
Following the animal trials, Michelakis and his colleagues did tests of DCA on human cancer cells in a Petri dish, then conducted human clinical trials using $1.5 million in privately raised funds. His encouraging results — DCA treatment appeared to extend the lives of four of the five study participants — were published last year in Science Translational Medicine.
Like Jonas Salk, Michelakis hasn’t patented his discovery. It’s not because he doesn’t want to, but because he can’t. When it comes to patents, DCA really is like the sun: It’s a cheap, widely used chemical that no one can own.
In today’s world, such drugs don’t readily attract funding.
Pharmaceutical companies are not exactly ignoring DCA, and they definitely aren’t suppressing DCA research — it’s just that they’re not helping it. Why? Drug development is ultimately a business, and investing in the drug simply isn’t a good business move. “Big Pharma has no interest whatsoever in investing [in DCA research] because there will be no profit,” Michelakis told Life’s Little Mysteries, a sister site to LiveScience.
“Profit is the incentive for the risk that the company takes,” Ogbru wrote. “Without the promise of a reasonable profit, there is very little incentive for any company to develop new drugs.”
It would be nearly impossible to make a profit on a drug like dichloroacetate. “If DCA proves to be effective, then it will be a ridiculously cheap drug,” Michelakis said.
Daniel Chang, an oncologist at the Stanford Cancer Center who recently began looking into DCA, concurred. “I’m sure the lack of patentability is playing a role in the lack of investigation,” Chang told us in an email.
While government health organizations like the National Cancer Institute give research grants to help fund clinical trials, “those would never be enough to get DCA approved as a cancer treatment,” said Akban Kahn, a Toronto doctor. “You need hundreds of millions of dollars, and a government grant is not that big.”
“We are seeing about 60 to 70 percent of patients who have failed standard treatments respond favorably to DCA,” Khan told Life’s Little Mysteries. Khan’s group just published its first peer-reviewed paper in the Journal of Palliative Medicine. “It’s a case report of a patient with a rare form of cancer who had tried other treatments that weren’t working, so he came to us for DCA.
Perhaps not entirely new. For inspiration and encouragement, Michelakis often recalls the story of the polio vaccine: “It succeeded in eradicating a deadly disease without making a profit.”

The Ultimate Conspiracy: Eugenics and population control (opinion)
By Hesh Goldstein

(NaturalNews) On March 20, 1969, Dr. Richard Day, the National Medical Director of the Rockefeller-sponsored “Planned Parenthood” program and Professor of Pediatrics at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, spoke before a group of students and health professionals at the Pittsburgh Pediatric Society.
Although Day was aware of the “Secret Agenda” within organized medicine to cull the world’s population, he was now free to speak because the closely guarded “Closed Conspiracy” was now an “Open Conspiracy” stating that “…everything is in place and nobody can stop us now.”
Bear in mind that besides the Rockefeller Foundation, other proponents of this “conspiracy” are Bill Gates, Barack Obama and probably Monsanto.
Dr. Day’s topics of discussion were as follows:
“Population control; permission to have babies; redirecting the purpose of sex – sex without reproduction and reproduction without sex; contraception universally available to all; sex education and canalizing of youth as a tool of world government; tax funded abortion as population control; encouraging homosexuality; technology used for reproduction without sex; families to diminish in importance; euthanasia and the “demise pill”; limiting access to affordable medical care makes eliminating elderly easier; medicine would be tightly controlled; elimination of private doctors; new difficult to diagnose and untreatable diseases; suppressing cancer cures as a means of population control; inducing heart attacks as a form of assassination; education as a tool for accelerating the onset of puberty and evolution; blending all religions into one and eliminating the old religions; changing the bible through revisions of key words; restructuring education as a tool of indoctrination; more time in schools, but pupils “wouldn’t learn anything”; controlling who has access to information; schools as the hub of the community; having books disappear from the libraries; changing laws to promote moral and social chaos; the encouragement of drug abuse to create a jungle atmosphere in cities and towns; promote alcohol abuse; restrictions on travel; the need for more jails and using hospitals as jails; no more psychological or physical security; rime used to manage society; curtailment of US industrial pre-eminence; shifting populations and economies – tearing out the social roots; sports as a tool of social engineering and change; sex and violence inculcated through entertainment; travel restrictions and implanted I.D. cards; know how people respond – making them do what you want; falsified scientific research; use of terrorism; surveillance implants and televisions that watch you; home ownership a thing of the past; the arrival of the totalitarian global system.”
If you look at what’s happening with government, food choices and many other issues, you can see many of Dr. Day’s topics slowly but surely coming into play.
What this means is that we can longer remain complacent and simply bend over forward for the “powers-to-be”.

Hey Planned Parenthood is promoting HIV Internationally as a Right to tell your partner whether or not you have the killer disease!!!!!! Page 3
And on page 6 they give the impression that it’s just plain wrong for the infected person to have to tell their partner, sounds like they would like to see the HIV spread…. hmm sounds like a population controlling interest at work here:
If someone with the AIDS virus was about to have sex with you, should they have to tell you about their HIV-positive status first? Planned Parenthood doesn’t think so.
In a brochure entitled Happy, Healthy, and Hot, which Planned Parenthood describes as a “guide for young people living with HIV to help them understand their sexual rights, and live healthy, fun, happy and sexually fulfilling lives,” the giant of the abortion advocacy world proclaims:
You have the right to decide if, when, and how to disclose your HIV status…
You know best if and when it is safe to disclose your [HIV] status…
There is no right or wrong way to have sex. Just have fun, explore and be yourself! …
It is not always possible to talk about to your partner(s) or to practice safer sex…
There is no if, and there is no question of when. The only appropriate time to disclose one’s HIV status is before having sex with your partner. That is the “right way.” An organization that really cared about sexual health would not need me to explain this.
I’m hardly the first to write about this problem with Happy, Healthy, and Hot. It got a fair amount of coverage when the brochure first came to light in 2010. But if you read the whole thing, it turns out that there’s enough baffling propaganda for several articles.

Nancy Pelosi to Receive Planned Parenthood Award
The nation’s largest abortion provider will recognize the Catholic politician with its highest honor, prompting a fresh round of criticism from those who say her faith is incompatible with her public record.
SAN FRANCISCO — On March 27, Planned Parenthood will bestow its highest honor on Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., minority leader in the House of Representatives and a self-identifying Catholic. The Margaret Sanger Award, named for the organization’s founder, who was a known proponent of eugenics, will recognize Pelosi for her legacy of “excellence and outstanding contributions to the reproductive health and rights movement.”
The move will revive questions from Catholics and pro-life activists who have pressed Church leaders in the United States to direct the congresswoman to refrain from receiving the Eucharist due to her public acceptance of what the Church calls intrinsic evil. And the ensuing debate will likely draw attention to Pelosi’s repeated and often contradictory references to her faith while defending or advancing her position on controversial legislation.

Warren Buffett has given $1.2 billion to abortion groups
May 13, 2014, marks one year since Philadelphia abortion Dr. Kermit Gosnell was convicted of first-degree murder “in the deaths of three babies who were delivered alive and then killed with scissors at his grimy, ‘house of horrors’ clinic,” according to the Associated Press. Gosnell instantly became the face of abortion in the prolife community.
But there’s another, more recognizable face pushing abortion in the U.S. – liberal billionaire Warren Buffett. The so-called “Oracle of Omaha” has donated more than $1.2 billion to abortion organizations from 2001 to 2012.
That’s equal to the cost of roughly 2.7 million first-trimester abortions – more than twice the number of abortions that occur in an entire year in the United States. Unlike Gosnell, however, everything Buffett has done has been entirely legal. But Buffett does share something else in common with the abortionist. Both their stories have been largely unreported.
Imagine the equivalent of the lives of 2.7 million children snuffed out to serve the whims of the third richest man in the world. Most people would say that’s a story, most likely several.
Oh no, supporters will cry. Planned Parenthood, NARAL and other similar groups do more than just abortions. And Buffett does more than fund the abortion industry. But that is the core of his agenda, just as it is theirs.
Buffett’s own charity, The Susan Thompson Buffett Foundation, is named after his first wife who was an abortion supporter. Its domestic operation is led by pro-abortion activist Tracy Weitz, Ph.D., MPA. Weitz has worked at Planned Parenthood, The Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health and once defined abortion as “a moral action undertaken by moral agents.”

Feinstein’s Bill to Kill Free Speech of Independent Journalists ‘Has Votes’ to Pass Senate
After fending off numerous attacks on the freedom of the internet last year, activists and independent journalists alike are now facing another hurdle that flies in the face of freedom of the press, the “Journalist Shield Law“.
Although the bill is being sold by the Obama administration and establishment politicians in both parties as a positive step in protecting free speech, unfortunately the name of this bill is highly deceiving. Remembering just how unpatriotic the Patriot Act was, this new law, although deceivingly named, is likely to crush freedom of speech of any journalist not on a corporate payroll. According to the AP, this is how the bill defines who a real journalist is:
“The bill’s protections would apply to a “covered journalist,” defined as an employee, independent contractor or agent of an entity that disseminates news or information. The individual would have to have been employed for one year within the last 20 or three months within the last five years.
It would apply to student journalists or someone with a considerable amount of freelance work in the last five years. A federal judge also would have the discretion to declare an individual a “covered journalist” who would be granted the privileges of the law.”
Essentially, if you don’t work for the likes of the dying mainstream media, the government can (and will) subpoena any journalist to force them to reveal their sources or face prosecution. Apparently, as described by one of the nation’s biggest hypocrites, the First Amendment only applies to some people and the government should get to decide who those people are. According to the bill, any information that “in purpose, subject matter and period of time covered so as to avoid compelling disclosure of peripheral, nonessential or speculative information.” could potentially be subject to Big Brother’s sticky fingers.

US Government Is World’s 3rd Largest Economy
Monday’s open enrollment deadline for ObamaCare, which, with its subsidies and tax credits, represents the largest expansion of government, is a good time to assess the total scale of government in the US.
Appreciating the full scope of the US government is difficult, because its activities are undertaken at the federal, state, and local levels. Adding all of this together, government in the US consumes more than $6 trillion a year. This makes the US government the world’s 3rd largest economy.
The United States economy produces just over $16 trillion in total goods and services every year. China’s economic output is, by the most reliable measure, over $8 trillion. The next largest national economy is Japan, producing around $5 trillion in total economic output. Federal, state, and local governments in the US, however, consume more than $6.2 trillion. US government spending, in fact, is about the same as the total economic output of France and Germany combined.

The head of DARPA gave millions in contracts to a family firm
It took Regina E. Dugan nearly 15 years to rise through the ranks to become director of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). Starting as a DARPA manager in 1996, she assumed a variety of roles over the next decade and a half. But now her climb to the top has been endangered by a financial scandal that has all the workings of a blockbuster — allegations of nepotism, government corruption, and ethics violations.
I. Family Ties and Corruption Allegations Plague New Obama’s DARPA Director
The scandal and active government investigations stem from a small defense contractor, RedXDefense, LLC, which Ms. Dugan launched in 2005. Serving as President and CEO, she decided in 2009 to depart when she was offered the position of DARPA director.
When she left RedXDefense, most expected she would cut all financial ties to the company. After all, the previous Bush administration’s DARPA director, Tony Tether, reportedly had strict policies when it came to fiscal accountability. States a former DARPA program manager in an interview with Wired, “With Tony, there wasn’t a little line. There was a valley. You either sell your stock [in your old firm], or there’s the door. With Regina, things were very different.”

Congress Quietly Repeals Congressional Insider Trading Ban
While Congress might be stuck in a deadlock on just about every issue imaginable, there’s one piece of legislation that both Democrats and Republicans hate unanimously: the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge (STOCK) Act, a law passed last year designed to prevent insider trading among lawmakers and government officials by requiring them to post disclosures of their financial transactions online.
Both parties and both houses of Congress hated the disclosure portion of the law so much that it was repealed on Friday without debate—the measure was sent to the president by unanimous consent. The ordeal took about 10 seconds in the Senate and 14 seconds in the House, according to official records.
The STOCK Act would have required members of Congress, their aides, and other federal employees making more than $119,554 a year to disclose their financial dealings in an online database. It was supposed to prevent government officials from using insider knowledge about policy-making to profit from stock trades and … READ THE REST (Congress Quietly Repeals Congressional Insider Trading Ban; By Sakib Ahmed; NYU Local; 4/15/13)

International marine science organization releases report on radiation in Pacific Ocean
NaturalNews) If you’ve heard about Fukushima radiation spreading to the Pacific Coast of North America but were “corrected” by sources both official and expert that this was based more on rumor than reality, then consider the information presented at the October 2013 North Pacific Marine Science Organization (PICES) annual meeting.
Researchers from Fisheries and Oceans Canada confirmed that the radioactive plume from Fukushima is indeed reaching the shores of Canada and the United States – and was detected at least six months ago - carried both in the ocean surface water and the atmosphere on similar but slightly different courses.
In a presentation titled “Communicating the forecasts, uncertainty and consequences of ecosystem change,” (read here: http://www.pices.int) the Canadian researchers gave evidence that the bulk of radioactivity from Fukushima is shifting almost entirely from the western portion of the North Pacific (Japan) to the eastern portion (North America) over the course of the next five years. As of 2012, it had already reached the central region of the Pacific Ocean, and a previously unpublished map shows that, as of 2013, it had reached the shores of Alaska and British Columbia, with the most intense area of the plume yet to arrive.
The Fall 2013 discussion centered around competing calculations of the severity of effects from cesium-137, based around two differing models of the radiation’s trajectory. The first, published by German researcher Erik Behrens and his colleagues at the Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research in 2012, drastically understates the potential dangers, predicting only modest levels of 2 becquerels per cubic meter (Bq/m^3) by 2015 for the 49th parallel near British Columbia and Washington state – scarcely above the background levels from the continued fallout of Chernobyl.
Meanwhile, the second, published by Vincent Rossi and other colleagues from the Climate Change Research Centre in 2013, presents a much more consequential picture. It predicts alarming maximum levels reaching … READ THE REST

Iran’s Islamic pipeline a mad man’s dream
By Mansour Kashfi
The Islamic Republic of Iran, after encountering frequent disqualification in its efforts to be a reliable partner in the international arena, specifically in oil, gas and pipeline transactions, is now entering a fresh game in delivering natural gas to Europe, in spite of the heavy sanctions imposed by the United Nations, United States, and European Union.
Only this time around it is trying to team up with the Islamic Arab states, bypassing its old trade partner Turkey. However, the ultimate goal still is the same – delivering Iranian natural gas via pipeline to Europe, a dream that has frequent failing records.
A memorandum of understanding was signed between the Iran and Turkey in July 2007 to transfer Iranian and Turkmen gas to Europe via Turkey. At that time the Iranian minister of petroleum, Qolamhosein Nozari, told reporters that “deliberations would be held in the coming weeks on management of the South Pars natural gas region and transportation of Iranian gas to Europe via Turkey.”

Iran urges Pakistan to build its own section of gas pipeline
Iranian Oil Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh asked Pakistan on Sunday to build its own section of natural gas pipeline.
“Big volume of gas is (ready for delivery) near the Pakistan border,” Zanganeh was quoted as saying by SHANA website affiliated to Iran’s Oil Ministry.
Pakistan should build its own section of the pipeline, he said, adding that “In case Pakistan takes action to construct the pipeline on its soil, the project will be completed” and Iran’s gas will flow into the neighboring country.
On Oct. 30, Zanganeh said Iran was not hopeful about exporting its natural gas to the neighboring state of Pakistan “because the conditions set by the Pakistani government has made export of Iranian gas to Pakistan unlikely.”
By his remarks, the Iranian oil minister was alluding to the earlier reports which said that Iran’s southeastern neighbor had asked the Islamic republic to finance on the gas pipeline to be built on Pakistan soil.
The local reports said Pakistan had asked Iran for financing of 2 billion U.S. dollars to construct 780-km gas pipeline on its soil.

Myanmar pipeline to diversify China energy supply
China has started receiving natural gas from Myanmar through an 800 km-long pipeline project. The opening of the pipeline on Sunday was hailed by State media here as a landmark step towards diversifying China’s energy supply routes.
The gas pipeline, which can transport 12 billion cubic metres annually, runs from Kyaukpyu to Ruili in southwestern Yunnan province, which borders Myanmar. China is also building an oil pipeline that will bring 22 million tons annually to Yunnan when completed.
The official Xinhua news agency said the opening of the gas pipeline had “substantially changed the strategic map of China’s energy supply channels” by alleviating what officials have described as the “Malacca dilemma” of being dependant (sic) on an energy route through the narrow straits.
“At present, as many as 80 per cent of China’s oil imports depend on the supply line going through the Malacca and Singapore straits, while the maritime route is patrolled by fleets headed by the U.S. navy,” the Xinhua commentary said.

Either the new Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen is a prepper, or there is something afoot in the world of banking. If she is a prepper, I missed any indication of that in her background. Bankers typically talk in terms of contingency plans and liquidation programs, not prepping for disasters.
In January of this year, Supervisory Regulation (SR) 14-01 was issued in regarding the need for bank preparedness particularly for the eight bank holding companies (BHCs) in the United States. According to the memo, there are eight Bank Holding Companies that appear to be at risk and that risk threatens the financial stability of the United States. These eight companies are Bank of America Corporation, Bank of New York Mellon Corporation, PLC, Citigroup Inc., Goldman Sachs Group, Inc., JPMorgan Chase & Co., Morgan Stanley, State Street Corporation, and Wells Fargo & Company.
The memo, dated January 24, was the first one of the year. It was sent from Michael Gibson to the top banks to stress increased supervisory expectations. Gibson stated,
“… the Federal Reserve is issuing this letter to clarify the heightened supervisory expectations for recovery and resolution preparedness for the eight domestic bank holding companies that may pose elevated risk to U.S. financial stability. “
Shortly after the “increased supervision” of the big eight, customers at other “not eight” banks started getting notices of bank drills where services will be limited. One example is … READ THE REST

In one of the most shocking State of the Union Addresses in recent memory, President Obama announced he will create a new kind of retirement account – the MyRA – which uses your retirement savings to buy U.S. Treasures and pay for U.S. debt. Obama’s announcement follows a number of startling events which demonstrate how desperate the government is becoming: with nowhere else to turn, the government is making a last-ditch effort to seize personal savings & retirement to fund the nation’s insurmountable debt. And there’s only ONE thing you can do to stop it from happening.
The Government Needs A New Source for Funds
The U.S. debt, not including unfunded liabilities, is over $17 trillion dollars. And the U.S. Treasury estimates our debt to go over $28 trillion by 2018! In order to finance this debt, the Federal Reserve has been buying 90% of the U.S. Treasury market through money-printing stimulus, to the tune of $80 BILLION per month for the last several years. And we all know that the Fed has begun tapering its stimulus program because they can no longer afford to fund the national debt.
So if the Fed is going insolvent, who do you think the government will lean on to pick up the slack? The answer is YOU. 10,000 Baby Boomers will turn 65 years-old every day until 2030. And while the government has a debt problem of $17 trillion, not so coincidentally, our country’s IRAs, 401Ks and other retirement accounts amount to right around $19 Trillion. What a convenient resource for the Federal Government!

Since early 2009, the Fed’s QE programs have dumped over $4 trillion into toxic assets and U.S. Treasuries in a desperate attempt to bail out the banking industry. The Fed’s extreme actions have only served to pump up banking reserves by $2.2 trillion and increase the money supply in circulation by a jaw-dropping $400 billion! So, where has all this money gone? The answer: since the exact moment the Fed began its QE programs, the DOW exploded by a staggering 9,000 points! So now that the Fed has begun tapering its QE programs, what does this mean for the DOW and other paper markets that have been artificially inflated by the Fed? Many experts now predict a 7,000-point collapse in the DOW by the time the Fed finishes tapering. That’s why the smart money is flocking away from the stock market and into the ONE asset that protects savings & retirement when the paper markets collapse.

The Crisis Generation
600 years of human history has shown that the average lifespan of a global reserve currency is equal to a “saeculum” – or “human lifetime” – of about 80-90 years, broken down into four 20-year generations. The best-selling book, “The Fourth Turning,” goes through history and demonstrates this 4-phase evolution:
1) First generation: High – This is an era when institutions are strong and society is confident about where it wants to go. America’s most recent First Turning was the post-World War II American High, beginning in 1946 and ending with the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
2) Second generation: Awakening – This is an era when institutions are attacked in the name of personal and spiritual autonomy. People suddenly tire of social discipline and want to recapture a sense of personal authenticity. America’s most recent Awakening was the “Consciousness Revolution,” which spanned from the campus and inner-city revolts of the mid-1960s to the reelection of Ronald Reagan.
3) Third generation: Unraveling – This is an era when institutions are weak and distrusted, while individualism is strong and flourishing. America’s most recent Unraveling was the Long Boom and Culture War, beginning in the mid-1980s and ending in the late 2000s.
4) Fourth generation: Crisis – This is an era in which institutional life is destroyed and rebuilt in response to a perceived threat to the nation’s survival. America’s most recent Fourth Turning began with the stock market crash of 1929 and climaxed with the end of World War II.
America is now in this fourth “crisis” phase, about 80-90 years from the beginning of the first phase. It is in this “fourth turning” crisis that institutional life will be torn down and rebuilt from the ground up. This rebuilding is … READ THE REST

USDA Gives Green Light to 2,4-D Resistant GM Crops
Sent: 1/7/2014 7:02 AM
The USDA has issued a draft statement essentially giving the green light to the marketing, sale and planting of GM corn and soybeans resistant to the hazardous herbicide 2,4-D.
Farm, food safety, health and environmental advocates denounced the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) which essentially gives the agency’s green light to the marketing, sale and planting of new varieties of genetically engineered (GE) corn and soybean designed to be resistant to the hazardous herbicide, 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D).
Sustainable Pulse would like to remind readers that Australia banned the use of 2,4-D HVE in 2013 over environmental concerns.
USDA’s “preferred” determination that 2,4-D corn and soy need not be regulated under the Plant Pest Act comes despite intense opposition over the past two years from farmers and over 400,000 other individuals and more than 150 farm, fishery, public health, consumer and environmental groups and private businesses. The agency’s release of its draft EIS today opens a 45-day public comment period.
Critics contend that cultivation of the new GE corn, developed under the brand name “Enlist” by Dow AgroSciences, a wholly owned subsidiary of Dow Chemical Company, will lead to dramatically increased use of 2,4-D, damage to non-GE crops—especially fruit and vegetable crops—and adverse effects on farmers’ livelihoods, as well as rural communities’ health and environments.
“American farmers and our families are at risk,” said Iowa corn and soybean farmer, George Naylor. “When Dow and Monsanto first brought out these GE crops, they assured us their new, expensive seeds would clean up our environment and reduce pesticide use. That didn’t happen. Today weeds are resistant to RoundUp, so farmers are using older, more deadly herbicides. 2,4-D corn is a giant step backwards; it’s just a terrible idea.”
“Enlist” corn is one of 8 herbicide-resistant GE crops pending approval by USDA. The others are herbicide-resistant varieties of soybeans (5), cotton (1) and creeping bentgrass (1). Two of these (soy and cotton) have been engineered to be used with dicamba, another notoriously drift-prone herbicide closely related to 2,4-D and known for easily damaging farmers’ non-GE crops. In 2013, USDA rapidly approved 7 other herbicide-resistant GE seeds, as the agency sought to speed up its GE crop approval process.
“GE herbicide-resistant seeds are clearly the growth engine powering the pesticide industry,” noted Pesticide Action Network senior scientist, Marcia Ishii-Eiteman. “These seeds are part of a technology package explicitly designed to drive up herbicide sales. By continuing to rubber-stamp its approval of Dow and Monsanto’s latest products, USDA has abandoned its responsibility to safeguard American farmers’ crops, health and livelihoods.”
Medical studies have linked 2,4-D and related herbicides to increased rates of cancer, Parkinson’s disease, low sperm counts in farmers and birth anomalies in their children. 2,4-D has also been shown to cause … READ ENTIRETY

All Norwegians become crown millionaires, in oil saving landmark, so why can’t the US Government JUST Balance the Budget???????
OSLO (Reuters) – Everyone in Norway became a theoretical crown millionaire on Wednesday in a milestone for the world’s biggest sovereign wealth fund that has ballooned thanks to high oil and gas prices.
Set up in 1990, the fund owns around 1 percent of the world’s stocks, as well as bonds and real estate from London to Boston, making the Nordic nation an exception when others are struggling under a mountain of debts.
A preliminary counter on the website of the central bank, which manages the fund, rose to 5.11 trillion crowns ($828.66 billion), fractionally more than a million times Norway’s most recent official population estimate of 5,096,300.
It was the first time it reached the equivalent of a million crowns each, central bank spokesman Thomas Sevang said.

How Roberts Was Blackmailed To Support ObamaCare
Many of us have questioned what caused Roberts to switch his vote on ObamaCare at the last minute, as reported by CBS, and doing so, so late that the Conservative Justices were forced to rewrite their majority opinion to be minority dissent.
According to some sources, Roberts wrote both the majority and a large portion of minority dissenting opinions. The liberal news outlet Salon.com has a story on July 3, 2012, “Roberts Wrote Both ObamaCare Opinions”, written by law professor Paul Campos, citing “a source within the court with direct knowledge of the drafting process.”
In 2000 Justice Roberts and his wife Jane adopted two children. Initially it was apparent that the adoptions were “from a Latin American country”, but over time it has become apparent that the adopted children were not Latin American, but were Irish. Why this matters will become evident.
In 2005 the NY Times began investigating Roberts (sic) life as a matter of his nomination to the Supreme Court by George Bush. The Times was shortly accused of trying to unseal the adoption papers and intending to violate the anonymity of the adoption process… however there is more to the story.
How were the Children Adopted?
According to The New York Times, based on information from Mrs. Roberts’s sister, Mary Torre, the children were adopted through a private adoption.
As explained by Families for Private Adoption, “[p]rivate (or independent) adoption is a legal method of building a family through adoption without using an adoption agency for placement. In private adoption, the birth parents relinquish their parental rights directly to the adoptive parents, instead of to an agency.”2
It all now makes sense.
The circumstances of these two adoptions explain not only why this would be overlooked by an overall sympathetic media, but also why a sitting Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court would not want this information to become public fodder well into his tenure. Its release and public discussion would discredit Roberts as an impartial judge of the law, and undoubtedly lead to his impeachment.
This also explains why Roberts would have a means to be blackmailed, and why that leverage would still exist even after the institution of ObamaCare.
… And it has led to flipping the swing-vote on ObamaCare, which fundamentally changed the relationship between citizen and government, making us de facto property of the state, with our relative worth in care and maintenance able to be determined by the government. Essentially it was a coup without firing a shot, much less needing even an Amendment to the Constitution.
Fukushima Debris Peaks On West Coast – Thousands exposed!
According to resistanceunited.com at no time are volunteers offered protective clothing or even a warning that they may be involuntarily exposing themselves and their children to radio-active material. The only warning they get is in the form of waiver. Of course as far as the government is concerned the California volunteers are perfectly safe and use the word “unlikely” even though no real data has been taken that can assist the volunteer in making an informed choice.
There is a fierce debate between citizens and government about whether debris from the Japanese Tsunami is radioactive or not. Private citizens with radiological detecting equipment say beaches and debris are radioactive, while the government sources maintain a veil of secrecy and guarded words about radiation. They hide behind the voice of the Japanese Tsunami Marine Debris Joint Information Center which promises to bring the public the latest information, but was last updated in December 2012! Volunteers are told it is “unlikely” debris washing up in California will be radioactive. They are also told that testing is being done which shows “no elevated levels of radioactivity”. They are reassured that California Emergency Management has “qualified emergency responders ready to help” if volunteers come across anything dangerous. By that time it will be too late to safe-guard their health.
These volunteers have cleaned up millions of pounds of debris from California’s coastline in the last three years since the Japanese Tsunami. This work was accomplished in everyday clothing with bucket in hand. None of the citizens were provided protective gear just in case debris turned out to be radioactive.

McDonald’s poised to embrace new GMO potato farming in 2014 and beyond
(NaturalNews) A new variety of genetically modified potato could show up in Idaho as early as 2015.
Nearly 13 years ago, customers revolted against Monsanto’s transgenic NewLeaf potato, which contained synthetic bacteria to kill insect pests. Now, a new company, J.R. Simplot Co., aims to bring back genetically modified potatoes to the state and elsewhere.
The Idaho Potato Commission, representing Idaho’s $3 billion potato industry, is in support of the new GMO potato variety but is wary of customer opposition. “Unless your customers are prepared to embrace this product, it’s not going to be successful,” said Frank Muir, president of the Commission.
McDonald’s on the other hand has a financial interest in the new GMO potato business.

Hidden Gold Taxes
The Golden Solution For Inflation
Many investors and financial commentators will tell you that there is no need to read a mini-course in order to learn how to turn inflation into wealth. They say the solution can be found in two words: BUY GOLD. (Or as some say: BUY SILVER.)
I like gold and silver. Gold or other precious metals should likely play a role in the portfolio of any investor who’s concerned about high rates of inflation or the possibility of a currency meltdown. Depending on your situation and beliefs, there is a case for precious metals related investments composing at least 5% to 10% of your portfolio on the low-end, up to 60% or 70% of your assets on the high-end. The reason for precious metals is that in a time of crisis there two distinct, essential investment attributes that precious metals can deliver better than just about any other asset in the world.
Through placing her money in what is conventionally considered one of the safest possible investments, during a time of high inflation, Kate has lost 50% of her net worth. This is terrible, of course, but at least she should be able to get a nice tax deduction out of this $50,000 loss. Except that when it comes time to fill in her tax return, she starts with $100,000 in her money market fund, and ends with $100,000 in principal in her money market fund. As far as the government is concerned — there is no loss to be deducted. Kate still has every dollar she started with.
Jack decides to lock in his gains by selling his gold investment, redeploy most of his newfound wealth into some new investments, and maybe take a little out to reward himself for having made such a brilliant investment. When it comes time for Jack to fill in his tax return, it shows that he bought his gold for $100,000 and he sold it for $200,000, thereby generating a $100,000 profit. Effectively, the government looks at Jack’s having dodged the its (sic) destruction of the value of the nation’s money, and says “Great move Jack, you made a lot of money! Now give us our share.”
Even in bullion form, gold is currently taxed as a “collectible” in the US, with a 28% capital gains tax rate, or almost twice the long-term capital gains tax rate on investments that the financial industry and government prefer. We’ll call it 30% to allow for some state capital gains taxes, and to keep the numbers round. However, this rate is not sufficient to cover government spending, as the federal government is currently running enormous deficits, as are the states and municipalities (particularly when we take into account not only declining tax collections but the pension fund crisis). So it is reasonable to expect potentially much higher taxes in the not-too-distant future, both in the US and other nations. …
Turning Gold Into Lead
From a gold investor’s perspective, $2,000 an ounce gold may seem like a dream come true. And when we look at the results, $100,000 turning into $200,000, gold does look like a great investment. Until we remember that the reason gold went to $2,000 an ounce was because of inflation and we adjust our investment results for inflation. We break even. While not a net improvement relative to today, this outcome is highly desirable compared to what happened to Kate. Gold did indeed act as “real money”.
Unfortunately, we then run into one of the most deeply unfair and little understood aspects of inflation and investing in anticipation of inflation. Government fiscal policy destroys the value of our dollars. Government tax policy does not recognize what government fiscal policy does, and is blind to inflation. This blindness means that attempts to keep up with inflation generate very real and whopping tax payments, on what is from an economic perspective, imaginary income.
These taxes turn gold from a shimmering dream to a lead weight around our neck, and mean even a successful inflation hedge can lead to a devastating loss in net worth in after-tax and after-inflation terms.
So how do we deal with this lead weight of inflation taxes around our neck, trying to … READ ENTIRETY

JERUSALEM — The Israeli government has decided to prevent a key witness from testifying in an anti-terrorism case in the United States, drawing accusations that it is caving in to pressure from China.
The lawsuit revolves around allegations that Bank of China knowingly allowed Palestinian militants to use its accounts to finance their operations, including a suicide attack in the city of Tel Aviv in 2006 that killed 11 people.

WASHINGTON — In the view of America’s spy services, the next potential threat from Russia may not come from a nefarious cyberweapon or secrets gleaned from the files of Edward J. Snowden, the former National Security Agency contractor now in Moscow.
Instead, this menace may come in the form of a seemingly innocuous dome-topped antenna perched atop an electronics-packed building surrounded by a security fence somewhere in the United States.
In recent months, the Central Intelligence Agency and the Pentagon have been quietly waging a campaign to stop the State Department from allowing Roscosmos, the Russian space agency, to build about half a dozen of these structures, known as monitor stations, on United States soil, several American officials said.
They fear that these structures could help Russia spy on the United States and improve the precision of Russian weaponry, the officials said. These monitor stations, the Russians contend, would significantly improve the accuracy and reliability of Moscow’s version of the Global Positioning System, the American satellite network that steers guided missiles to their targets and thirsty smartphone users to the nearest Starbucks.
“They don’t want to be reliant on the American system and believe that their systems, like GPS, will spawn other industries and applications,” said a former senior official in the State Department’s Office of Space and Advanced Technology. “They feel as though they are losing a technological edge to us in an important market.

Dodd Frank plans to regulate the Fund managers and personal IRAs in case of a market shock.
This report provides a brief overview of the asset management industry and an analysis of how asset management firms and the activities in which they engage can introduce vulnerabilities that could pose, amplify, or transmit threats to financial stability.
The Financial Stability Oversight Council (the Council) decided to study the activities of asset management firms to better inform its analysis of whether—and how—to consider such firms for enhanced prudential standards and supervision under Section 113 of the Dodd-Frank Act.1 The Council asked the Office of Financial Research (OFR), in collaboration with Council members, to provide data and analysis to inform this consideration. This study responds to that request by analyzing industry activities, describing the factors that make the industry and individual firms vulnerable to financial shocks, and considering the channels through which the industry could transmit risks across financial markets.

The left has had its eye on retirement savings for years, but so far takeover attempts have been rebuffed. One egregious attempt was the proposal, following the 2010 financial crisis, to “safeguard” retirement savings by requiring that they be rolled over into Treasury bonds. Had this legislation succeeded, it would have appropriated all or part of the retirement savings of millions of Americans. The funds would have been used to finance further expansion of government. In return, savers would have received a promissory note from the federal government similar that issued by the Social Security Trust Fund.
Needless to say, most investors were not keen to convert their savings into Treasury obligations — or, to be more precise, into an unsecured note promising a return approximating that of Treasury bonds. That is because, as with every other endeavor, government’s management of retirement savings (aka Social Security) has been a disaster.
Despite its 2010 failure to take over retirement savings, the left has not given up. As reported in WND, officials at the U.S. Treasury and Labor Departments continue discussions aimed at channeling private savings into Treasury obligations via a so-called “Automatic IRA.” Once it has forced workers and employers to contribute to Automatic IRAs, and eventually forced existing savings into government obligations as well, government would control much of the investment capital in America. The free market will cease to exist.
Perhaps in support of that goal, Dodd-Frank legislation of 2010 established the Office of Financial Research (OFR) [Blog Editor: This should sound familiar to the PDF report linked above!], which recently issued a report suggesting that mutual funds may pose a risk to financial stability. At several points in the report, the authors suggest that many aspects of the financial system are not at present highly regulated and that the risks of these unregulated private transactions are unknown. The implication seems to be that greater government scrutiny is called for.
OFR is a bureaucracy charged with the task of sniffing out systemic risk and passing along its findings to the Financial Stability Oversight Council (FSOC). The chairman of that august body is none other than Jacob Lew, Obama’s secretary of the treasury. This is the same Jacob Lew who was employed as chief operating officer at Citigroup Alternative Investments (CAI) during the financial crisis. CAI reportedly incurred significant losses during the financial crisis. As COO of that division of Citigroup, Lew would not seem to be an ideal candidate to chair a committee on Financial Stability — much less the person to be put in charge of America’s retirement savings [Blog Editor: Oh-Oh, Do you see the Leftist agenda at work in your personal life yet?].
That is the reality, I believe, behind the innocuous-sounding Office of Financial Research and its report on the supposed risk to the financial system underlying mutual funds.

Gold Leasing Is A Tool For The Global Credit Game
- By Zhang Jie, Deputy editor of “Global Finance”, expert specially engaged by China Gold Association.
The world’s financial and real estate crisis will eventually produce a credit crisis.
The price of gold is closely related with credit, the implication from suppression the gold price lies not only on gold, but more so in currencies and the trust behind currencies.
Gold leasing is an important innovation in the gold settlement system. Through continuous gold leasing the gold in the market can be circulated and produce derivatives, creating more and more paper gold. This is very significant for the United States. Gold leasing is a major tool for the Federal Reserve and other central banks in the West to secretly control and regulate the gold market, creating gold credit derivatives and global credit conflict.
China suffered from gold lease in the past
World gold leasing started in the 1980s, when the gold price rose to over 800 US$ per ounce. Gold leasing at that time effectively combated the price of gold. More strategically, the gold price affected national creditworthiness. A lower gold price suppressed the Soviet Union and China after 1989 when they were sanctioned by the West, in addition to the sanctions imposed on South Africa for apartheid. As all three were heavily dependent on gold to import necessities, the gold price had become a protection for foreign credit in these countries.
In the 1990s, the introduction of gold leasing effectively lowered the price of gold. Low gold and oil prices have caused great difficulties for China, the former Soviet Union and South Africa who were in dire need of foreign currencies. As a result, these countries had to sell resources or core assets very cheaply, which now have to be bought back more expensively. The West thus gained extensively by suppressing gold prices.
Gold credit is even more critical in today’s world where risk of global crises, war and conflicts increases. If a global full-scale conflict were to develop, the globalised financial system would collapse and trust in national currencies would vanish completely. Only liquid assets, of which the best liquid asset is gold, can establish trust between nations. Consequently, the trust in gold will become critical; gold can become a powerful weapon in the world credit game. Crude oil and other commodities that are difficult to store can’t be used as trust equivalents. Gold being the leading candidate is inevitable, thus led to gold leasing becoming the tool and mean of the world credit game.
Gold leasing to control credit
If the Fed were to engage in gold leasing, the lessee is the key in this process. In the bull market during the past several years, gold leasing agencies which shorted gold may incurred huge losses. Although these losses exist, we don’t see them because it’s possible for entities such as Lehman Brothers to manipulate their accounts. However, it is unlikely for the Fed to be involved directly in the shorting of gold reserves and manipulation of accounts, but it is entirely possible for the Fed to engage in gold leasing on a huge scale, and the related lessee could thus bear a huge loss. If the loss is exposed, even a large institution could collapse. This could create a crisis as bad as the one caused by the collapse of Lehman Brothers. Germany and the IMF should see the signs of such a crisis that would have a serious impact on the creditworthiness of countries and agencies.
Germany staged a coup on the US Fed
If the Fed’s large gold reserves are used in gold leasing, there will be a serious problem. Germany therefore will threaten the Fed’s dominant position by demanding their gold back; the Fed subsequently needs to withdraw the leased gold and thus could destabilize the market. This is a new credit game of international capital.
If the Fed is engaged in gold leasing it’s impossible that the Fed is able to show Germany and France their stored gold because the gold has been used in gold leasing. The Fed should be able to combine the remaining gold deposits from all remaining countries to allow for Germany’s inspection – Germany has no right to audit gold reserves of other countries. The Fed probably has agendas aimed at preventing Germany to inspect its gold or to ship it back to Germany. These agendas are likely to be related to the game of international finance and the credit game between countries. Gold is a financial and monetary product; it represents the authority of …
For the Fed, it is crucial that the dollar dominates the world and so the Fed will store gold reserves from countries all over the world to control the gold settlement system. If there were another gold settlement system, it would compete with the dollar’s trust. Natural gold credit would be a nightmare for the continuous printed dollar. The dollar can only be the world currency as a result of the United States controlling global gold settlement. However, if other countries want their gold back from the Fed, the Fed will lose its gold settlement position. Underneath the global gold reserves at the Fed, there is the promise of the United States to continue with the dollar-gold price under the Bretton Woods system. Since the collapse of the Bretton Woods system 30 years ago, it is suspected that the United States violated the original agreement; therefore other countries have the right to demand their gold reserves back from the Fed.
… If Germany holds its own gold reserves, this will restrict other countries to lease gold. Such action could create a panic over gold, subsequently support gold prices and blow the confidence of gold short sellers. This will have significantly more impact on the market’s confidence than actual market transactions. At a time when the market is concerned about the US Fed having a huge gold deficit, who dares to short gold on a massive scale? Here we should see the divergence between United States and Europe as well as with Germany.

“A Corporate Trojan Horse”: Obama Pushes Secretive TPP Trade Pact, Would Rewrite Swath of U.S. Laws
As the federal government shutdown continues, Secretary of State John Kerry heads to Asia for secret talks on a sweeping new trade deal, the Trans-Pacific Partnership. The TPP is often referred to by critics as “NAFTA on steroids,” and would establish a free trade zone that would stretch from Vietnam to Chile, encompassing 800 million people — about a third of world trade and nearly 40 percent of the global economy. While the text of the treaty has been largely negotiated behind closed doors and, until June, kept secret from Congress, more than 600 corporate advisers reportedly have access to the measure, including employees of Halliburton and Monsanto. “This is not mainly about trade,” says Lori Wallach, director of Public Citizen’s Global Trade Watch. “It is a corporate Trojan horse. The agreement has 29 chapters, and only five of them have to do with trade. The other 24 chapters either handcuff our domestic governments, limiting food safety, environmental standards, financial regulation, energy and climate policy, or establishing new powers for corporations.”

The Obama administration is facing increasing scrutiny for the extreme secrecy surrounding negotiations around a sweeping new trade deal that could rewrite the nation’s laws on everything from healthcare and Internet freedom to food safety and the financial markets. The latest negotiations over the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) were recently held behind closed doors in Lima, Peru, but the Obama administration has rejected calls to release the current text. Even members of Congress have complained about being shut out of the negotiation process. Last year, a leaked chapter from the draft agreement outlined how the TPP would allow foreign corporations operating in the United States to appeal key regulations to an international tribunal. The body would have the power to override U.S. law and issue penalties for failure to comply with its rulings.
We discuss the TPP with two guests: Celeste Drake, a trade policy specialist with the AFL-CIO, and Jim Shultz, executive director of the Democracy Center, which has just released a new report on how corporations use trade rules to seize resources and undermine democracy. “What is the biggest threat to the ability of corporations to go into a country and suck out the natural resources without any regard for the environment or labor standards? The threat is democracy,” Shultz says. “The threat is that citizens will be annoying and get in the way and demand that their governments take action.

10 Corporations Control Almost Everything You Buy — This Chart Shows How
Ten mega corporations control the output of almost everything you buy; from household products to pet food to jeans.
According to this chart via Reddit, called “The Illusion of Choice,” these corporations create a chain that begins at one of 10 super companies. You’ve heard of the biggest names, but it’s amazing to see what these giants own or influence.
(Note: The chart shows a mix of networks. Parent companies may own, own shares of, or may simply partner with their branch networks.

Cannibalism In Syria Causes An Extremely Rare Disease
By Theodore Shoebat
November 4, 2013
Its (sic) called Kuru, an extremely rare disease which virtually became extinct after extinguishing cannibalism in Papua New Guinea. Amazingly Kuru has now been found in 8 to 20 people, out of all places, in war-torn Syria, and the only way it could have come about, doctors confirmed, is through cannibalism and the consumption of human brain, as first reported by Arabian news source Zaman al-Wasal and substantiated by Orient News Television.
Here is a documentary showing the connection between native sorcery, ritualized cannibalism, and its end result, Kuru:
VIDEO: Kuru: The Science and The Sorcery (52 Minute Documentary)
Two of the infected were sent from Syria to a hospital (sic) in Ghazi Antab in Turkey for further examination to only be transferred to another hospital in Germany. One of the two already died, since Kuru is 100% fatal. Kuru is contagious and has symptoms of skin ulcers and worms, and according to a piece on the New York Times,
Kuru is a very rare disease. It is caused by an infectious protein (prion) found in contaminated human brain tissue.
Kuru is found among people from New Guinea who practiced a form of cannibalism in which they ate the brains of dead people as part of a funeral ritual.
One of the infected men in the German hospital was confirmed to have eaten human flesh, and he eventually died. When the Turkish hospital was asked on the details of the cannibalism case, they refrained from saying anything.
Moreover, the Free Syrian Army said they will be doing an investigation on the cannibalism case, and this sparks a hunch as to what their intentions are behind this.
Overall, there are 8 to 20 cases of Kuru in Syria; Kuru strictly is caused by cannibalism, and cannibalism was involved from the report on what took place in the German hospital.
In past studies, it was established that in the area of Fore in Paupa (sic) New Guinea, Kuru was transmitted due to “ritualistic mortuary cannibalism.”
It is quite possible that this is what commenced the infection, in that the jihadists began to eat the flesh of their enemies.
Cannibalism is not beyond the nature of the Muslim rebels, here is a video of a Syrian jihadist eating a lung:
The Case that a Fed Bailout is Coming

The Fed has no endgame
The financial markets are focused on guessing when the Federal Reserve will begin to reduce its $85 billion a month in asset purchases.
A move to buy fewer Treasurys and mortgage-backed securities — say, $70 billion to $75 billion a month as a first stage, instead of the current $85 billion a month — would lead, the market fears, to a rise in U.S. interest rates and a stronger dollar that would provoke a selloff in global markets.
The consensus now says this tapering won’t begin until March 2014 at the soonest, although the Fed’s press release after the October meeting of its Open Market Committee led to a pickup among traders and investors in votes for January 2014.
The Federal Reserve itself, however, has moved on in its worries and plans. While the timing of any taper remains an unsettled issue, planning at the Fed is now concentrating on the endgame.
After building up its balance sheet to a record $3.84 trillion — including $2 trillion in Treasurys and $1.4 trillion in mortgage-backed securities — the big question, and the one with much more impact in the long-term on the U.S. and global economies and financial markets, is how does the Fed sell these assets so it can cut its balance sheet back to normal levels?
MSN Money’s Mirhaydari: Fed Must Act Fast to Prevent Deflation Disaster
The Federal Reserve must do more and do it fast before we fall into a 1990s-style Japanese deflation disaster, argues MSN Money columnist Anthony Mirhaydari in an article for MarketWatch.
The Fed is continuing to purchase $85 billion of bonds a month in an effort to bolster the economy by keeping rates low.
It’s not enough, warns Mirhaydari, a former research analyst.
Mirhaydari recommends that the Fed inject funds directly into the economy by funding public-private infrastructure investment trusts or converting its Treasury holdings into equity-like assets, which would essentially erase some of the national debt. It could convert long-term bonds into zero-coupon perpetuity bonds.

As stimulus tab rises for Fed, worries grow it may require a bailout
WASHINGTON — The Federal Reserve has taken unprecedented steps to stimulate the economic recovery from the Great Recession, but the tab has risen to such tremendous proportions — fast approaching $4 trillion — that some worry the central bank ultimately could require its own taxpayer rescue.
The Fed’s total assets on its balance sheet have more than quadrupled to $3.8 trillion since 2008 amid a massive bond-buying effort. And there are few signs that the growth will stop any time soon.
That could put the finances of the world’s most powerful central bank at risk if historically low interest rates were to rise sharply — something top Fed officials said they do not expect but that critics warn is very possible.
It also could inhibit the ability of central bank officials to respond to future economic and financial crises.
“It’s really pretty cut-and-dried as far as the arithmetic goes: If you buy bonds and interest rates go up, you’re going to take a capital loss on those bonds,” said James D. Hamilton, an economics professor at UC San Diego. “The more they buy, the bigger their balance sheet, the bigger the loss they’re going to face.”

FHA to get $1.7 billion in its first taxpayer-funded bailout
WASHINGTON — The Federal Housing Administration dramatically expanded its role after the subprime market collapsed, but at the expense of its own finances. Now, the government agency will get a first-ever bailout of $1.7 billion.
In a letter Friday to Congress, the agency’s head said it needed money to stabilize its long-term finances and cover potential losses on the huge volume of low-down-payment mortgages it insured from 2007 to 2009.
It’s the first time the 79-year-old FHA — created during the Great Depression to keep home lending flowing — will require taxpayer funding.
And it will get the money automatically. The FHA is financed by mortgage insurance premiums charged to homeowners and has been self-sustaining through its history. But it has the authority to draw funds from the Treasury without asking Congress.
FHA Commissioner Carol Galante informed lawmakers the agency would need the money Monday, the last day of the fiscal year, to ensure it has sufficient reserves to cover anticipated losses on the loans it backs. A bailout has been expected since April, when the Obama administration’s proposed 2014 budget projected the FHA would need $943 million by Sept. 30.
But the agency asked for nearly twice that much because of a recent decline in business, caused by rising mortgage interest rates, Galante said.
Others believe the FHA will ultimately need far more. Government accounting rules mask even greater financial problems at the FHA, which … READ THE REST (FHA to get $1.7 billion in its first taxpayer-funded bailout; By Jim Puzzanghera; LA Times; 9/28/13)
Guest Post: Will The Fed Bailout China’s Financial System?
The twenty-first-century economy has thus far been shaped by capital flows from China to the United States – a pattern that has suppressed global interest rates, helped to reflate the developed world’s leverage bubble, and, through its impact on the currency market, fueled China’s meteoric rise. But these were no ordinary capital flows. Rather than being driven by direct or portfolio investment, they came primarily from the People’s Bank of China (PBOC), as it amassed $3.5 trillion in foreign reserves – largely US Treasury securities.
The fact that a single institution wields so much influence over global macroeconomic trends has caused considerable anxiety, with doomsayers predicting that doubts about US debt sustainability will force China to sell off its holdings of US debt. This would drive up interest rates in the US and, ultimately, could trigger the dollar’s collapse.
But selling off US Treasury securities, it was argued, was not in China’s interest, given that it would drive up the renminbi’s exchange rate against the dollar, diminishing the domestic value of China’s reserves and undermining the export sector’s competitiveness. Indeed, a US defense department report last year on the national-security implications of China’s holdings of US debt concluded that “attempting to use US Treasury securities as a coercive tool would have limited effect and likely would do more harm to China than to the [US].”
To describe the symbiotic relationship between China’s export-led GDP growth and America’s excessive consumption, the economic historians Niall Ferguson and Moritz Schularick coined the term “Chimerica.” The invocation of the chimera of Greek mythology – a monstrous, fire-breathing amalgam of lion, goat, and dragon – makes the term all the more appropriate, given that Chimerica has generated massive and terrifying distortions in the global economy that cannot be corrected without serious consequences.
In 2009, these distortions led Ferguson and Schularick to forecast Chimerica’s collapse – a prediction that seems to … READ THE REST (Guest Post: Will The Fed Bailout China’s Financial System? Submitted by Tyler Durden, Authored by Alexander Friedman; Zero Hedge; 8/25/13 11:19 -0500)
Why the Federal Reserve is Flooding the Market with Dollars

This is why the Federal Reserve is flooding the market with dollars, they are at war………
China seeks world role for ‘people’s money’
With deals from London to Singapore, China is seeking a greater role for its yuan currency in global markets to challenge the hegemony of the almighty dollar.
The most attention-grabbing reform planned for Shanghai’s new free trade zone is free convertibility of the yuan — also known as the renminbi, or “people’s money” — an unprecedented change which would allow greater use of the currency.
But no timetable has been specified, and a true contest between Mao Zedong, Communist China’s founding father whose face is emblazoned on most yuan notes, and Benjamin Franklin on the $100 bill will be years in the making.
For decades the US has benefited to the tune of trillions of dollars-worth of free credit from the greenback’s role as the default global reserve unit.
But as the global economy trembled before the prospect of a US default last month, only averted when Washington reached a deal to raise its debt ceiling, China’s official Xinhua news agency called for a “de-Americanised” world.
It also urged the creation of a “new international reserve currency… to replace the dominant US dollar”.
For China — which has the world’s biggest foreign exchange reserves — the immediate appeal of a greater role for the yuan is lubricating trade flows and drawing foreign investment.
“Policymakers have made new efforts to increase the attraction of the renminbi in global markets,” said Capital Economics analyst Wang Qinwei.
He pointed to a deal with Britain in October allowing London-based institutions to invest directly in China — avoiding an expensive detour via Hong Kong — with an initial quota of 80 billion yuan ($12.9 billion).
A week later Beijing signed a similar 50 billion yuan agreement with … READ THE REST (China seeks world role for ‘people’s money’; By AFP; France 24; 11/6/2013)
China’s Yuan makes waves on international currency markets
Evidence the yuan is becoming truly global can be found in Rongrong Huo’s passport, which shows the HSBC banker bouncing from Switzerland to South Africa fielding inquiries from a growing number of clients on how they can trade China’s currency.
“The market potential is huge,” Huo, who heads HSBC’s yuan business development for Europe, said in an interview after returning to London from Warsaw. “Companies are asking, how can we make progress on this front? And investors are asking, how can we bring the yuan into our asset allocation? It’s encouraging to see the engagement. It’s about the future.”
Three years after China allowed the yuan to start trading in Hong Kong’s offshore market, banks and investors around the world are positioning themselves to get involved in what Nomura Holdings Inc. calls the biggest revolution in the $5.3 trillion currency market since the creation of the euro in 1999.
Daily yuan transactions surged to $120 billion in April from $34 billion in 2010, making it the ninth most-traded currency in the world, according to a September report by the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland.
Merk Investments LLC in Palo Alto, Calif. said it’s adding “as much as” it can of offshore yuan to its $450 million of funds. Union Bank NA, a unit of Bank of Tokyo- Mitsubishi UFJ Ltd., is pushing wealthy clients to diversify their savings into yuan deposits, while CME Group Inc., the largest futures exchange, began offering trading in offshore yuan derivatives in February.
International use of the yuan is increasing as the world’s second-largest economy opens up its capital markets. In the first nine months of this year, about 17 per cent of China’s global trade was settled in the currency, compared with less than one per cent in 2009, according to … READ THE REST (China’s yuan makes waves on international currency markets; By Ye Xie, Maria Levitov and Fion Li, Bloomberg; Vancouver Sun; 11/4/13)

You see, the Reid Ran Senator has NEVER ALLOWED THIS BILL TO COME TO THE SENATE FLOOR … EVER!!!!! And it makes way more sense than the ACA!!!!! [Blog Editor: The ACA is better known as Obamacare]
Patients’ Choice Act (S. 1099)
The health care system in America is broken. Costs are rising at an unacceptable rate—more than doubling over the last 10 years, which is nearly four times the rate of wage growth. Too many patients feel trapped by health care decisions dictated by insurers and HMOs. Too many doctors are torn between practicing medicine and practicing insurance. And some 47 million Americans worry what will happen to them or their children if they get sick.
As a physician, I am keenly aware that our country needs health care reform. I support comprehensive reform which would enable every American to enjoy health coverage, lower costs, increase patient choice, improve access and quality, and protect the patient-physician relationship.
Universal access to high quality health care is possible, and Americans are justified to expect it. We have the best doctors in the world…the best scientists in the world… the best hospitals in the world. Now America needs to build the best health care in the world. We need to empower patients, and reduce the power of government and insurance bureaucrats. Every American should be able to get the care they need.
We will move closest to this goal when we promote the same innovation and competition in health care that we see in every other American industry. America should achieve universal access in a way that puts individual Americans in charge of their own health care decisions. We need American solutions.
In May 2009, I introduced my own health care reform solution, the Patients’ Choice Act (S. 1099) which would accomplish these goals. The Patients’ Choice Act would put individuals in charge of their health care decisions and would increase access, affordability, and choice of health care plans. This proposal is a clear market-based reform that seeks to strengthen the relationship between the patient and the doctor.

Click here for the Patients’ Choice Act Q & A’s section.
Let me briefly to highlight a few points:
• Americans save more money. The Patients’ Choice Act equalizes the tax treatment of health insurance and enables every American to buy health insurance with a tax credit, regardless of employment status, age, health condition or the resources to purchase health insurance. This means that about nine in 10 American households would see a tax cut, and for patients and families making under $250,000 annually, their health insurance premium costs would generally be lower. Employers would still be able to deduct from their taxes the cost of providing health insurance to their employees, but millions of Americans who do not currently receive health insurance would have real buying power.
• States offer solutions. The Patients’ Choice Act incentivizes states to establish State Exchanges, which would offer high-quality, affordable health insurance to all individuals, regardless of their employment status, age, health condition, or pre-existing conditions. Health insurance plans sold in a State Exchange would offer the high-quality health plans like Members of Congress receive.
• Seniors fare better. The Patients’ Choice Act protects seniors. Unlike some proposals being considered in Congress, my plan is not financed by arbitrary and drastic cuts to Medicare. As a practicing physician, I know how many seniors rely on Medicare and I am committed to reforming Medicare. My plan would significantly reduce the high rate of Medicare fraud compared to today’s practices. This policy change alone would improve Medicare’s solvency, ensure taxpayer dollars are not wasted, and help us keep our commitment to America’s seniors. My plan would also improve competition and value under Medicare Advantage, and allow seniors making healthy decisions to save more.
• No new spending, no new taxes. According to our estimates Patients’ Choice Act does not require new spending or new taxes. It is my intent to address our health care crisis my fixing incentivizes in the system and reallocating existing money. Americans already spend $2.4 trillion a year on health care, which means that we need to figure out ways to spend our health care dollars more effectively instead of drastically increasing spending. In fact, one independent estimate said my bill could save taxpayers $70 billion and ensure a majority of currently uninsured Americans.
• Transforms Medicaid to provide real coverage and care. The Patients’ Choice Act transforms Medicaid by building upon the innovations we have seen in a number of states. My plan would integrates low-income families with dependent children into higher quality private plans through a tax credit and direct financial assistance. Keeping families together within one provider network will foster coordinated, personalized care and promote innovative patient care models such as medical homes. My plan also maintains current law for benefit security and stable funding for individuals with disabilities but enables better care management. This would improve the health coverage and care for about 45 million Americans, and save taxpayers about $260 billion. States would save a lot as well: about $960 billion over 10 years!
• Invests in prevention and wellness. The Patients’ Choice Act invests in prevention and wellness for all Americans. Currently, five preventable chronic diseases cause two-thirds of American deaths and consume 75 percent of our total health expenditures each year. These chronic diseases are largely preventable. My plan’s investment in public health and disease prevention will help reduce health care costs and improve the quality of Americans’ lives.
• Less government control and no government-run plan. The Patients’ Choice Act increases patient control and decreases government control. I strongly oppose the creation of any new government-run health care plan. A government-run program would only compound existing problems, by giving taxpayer dollars to Washington bureaucrats who would wield undue control over Americans’ health care decisions. A new government health care plan would also mean that millions of Americans would lose their current health care. Furthermore, socialized governmental systems stay afloat by rationing care and letting people die before their time. Numerous studies, reports, and media have shown that necessary medical procedures are delayed far too long in countries where there is socialized medicine. A government-run plan is not the answer. A government-run plan would unfortunately operate with the compassion of the IRS and the efficiency of the federal Katrina response. It will not meet the basic needs of our citizens, reduce costs or improve outcomes, so I will continue to oppose it.
All Americans should have the ability to make their own health care decisions, see the doctor they want, and get the care they need. As a practicing physician and two-time cancer survivor, I support targeted, sensible health care reform which builds on what works and fixes what is broken. I will fight for solutions that strengthen the relationship between patients and doctors, solutions that put patients –not Washington bureaucrats – in charge of their health care decisions and provide common-sense solutions to our nation’s health care crisis.

Disability USA: Dr. Coburn on 60 Minutes
(WASHINGTON, D.C.) – Today, Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Ranking Member Tom Coburn, M.D. (R-OK), Chairman Tom Carper (D-DE), Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations Chairman Carl Levin (D-MI) and Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations Ranking Member John McCain (R-AZ), released the findings of a two year investigation into a case study of abuses surrounding the approval process of Social Security Disability benefits. The report, entitled, “How Some Legal, Medical, and Judicial Professionals Abused Social Security Disability Programs for the Country’s Most Vulnerable: A Case Study of the Conn Law Firm,” details inappropriate conduct and collusion between a law firm, Social Security Law Judges and doctors in approving benefits, while outlining the inept agency oversight which allowed the misconduct to take place for years.
The investigation was led by Senator Coburn. The first year of the investigation was conducted by the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations when Senator Coburn was the Ranking Member there, prior to his becoming the Ranking Member of the full Committee. The Committee will hold a hearing today featuring the report entitled: “Social Security Disability Benefits: Did A Group of Judges, Doctors and Lawyers Abuse Programs for the Country’s Most Vulnerable?” on Monday, October 7, 2013, at 3 p.m. EST in room 342 of the Dirksen Senate Office Building in Washington, D.C. The hearing will be broadcast on CSPAN 3.
“This report highlights the very problems Congress needs to focus on but too often ignores. In just two years, the Social Security Disability Trust Fund could be depleted. That means millions of disabled Americans will face benefit cuts while every American could see an increase in their payroll taxes. That is unacceptable. What is also outrageous, as this report details, is how well-heeled and well-connected lawyers, doctors, and judges have gamed the system for their own benefit. Every bogus claim made on behalf of someone who is not truly disabled robs taxpayers and denies or delays benefits for someone who is truly disabled. This is an enormous and urgent problem that should demand our immediate attention,” Ranking Member Coburn said, noting that a previous report on the disability program showed at least more than 25 percent of 300 disability cases reviewed contained errors or poor quality analysis.

Obama orders government to prepare for impact of global warming
President Obama issued an executive order Friday directing a government-wide effort to boost preparation in states and local communities for the impact of global warming.
The action orders federal agencies to work with states to build “resilience” against major storms and other weather extremes. For example, the president’s order directs that infrastructure projects like bridges and flood control take into consideration climate conditions of the future, which might require building structures larger or stronger — and likely at a higher price tag.
“The impacts of climate change — including an increase in prolonged periods of excessively high temperatures, more heavy downpours, an increase in wildfires, more severe droughts, permafrost thawing, ocean acidification and sea-level rise — are already affecting communities, natural resources, ecosystems, economies and public health across the nation,” the presidential order said. “The federal government must build on recent progress and pursue new strategies to improve the nation’s preparedness and resilience.”
There’s no estimate of how much the additional planning will cost. Natural disasters including …
Mr. Obama has a goal of reducing U.S. greenhouse gas emissions by 17 percent by 2020, and the Environmental Protection Agency is working on rules that would impose tougher regulations on coal-burning power plants.
