Weekly News Wrap-Up 1.24.14

4By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 

Syria is the top story.  Before the second round of Geneva peace talks even started, Iran was uninvited to the talks by the U.N.  It was because Iran would not agree that the President of Syria, Bashar al-Assad, should be removed as part of any peace plan.  The Syrian peace talks have turned into a name calling event with both sides posturing.  This is why the headlines say things like peace talks get off to “Belligerent Start.”  The Syrian Foreign Minister says, “The West claims to fight terrorism publically while they feed it privately.”  Secretary of State John Kerry says there “is no way possible in the imagination” that Syrian president Assad should be allowed to stay in power.  Kerry said Assad is “. . . a one-man super-magnet for terrorism.”  Kerry and the Obama White House have long said Assad should go.  Russian President Vladimir Putin cut a deal last year to remove Syria’s chemical weapons, and war was averted.  Now, the U.S. is, once again, saying Assad should be removed from power as part of any peace plan.  The Russians and the Iranians are not going along, and that means more war.  The U.S. is considering more funding for the rebels who are, in part, al-Qaeda.  The peace talks are solidifying the fact that more war is coming, and it will likely intensify.   This shows that after 130,000 were killed in the bloody Syrian civil war, there is no end in sight. 

Meanwhile, Israel stopped an attack on our embassy there.  This was a foiled al-Qaeda bombing plan to blow up the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv.  Could someone explain the bad al Qaeda that wants to blow us up and the good al Qaeda that the U.S. wants to arm in Syria?  

It also looks like the deal to curtail Iran’s nuclear program is on shaky ground.  One CNN anchor called it “a train wreck.”  Iranian President Hassan Rouhani told CNN “not under any circumstances” would it destroy key parts of its nuclear program, such as thousands of centrifuges.  This is a key component of enriching uranium needed for nuclear weapons.  Iran has always maintained its nuclear program is for the peaceful production of energy.  Many countries in the West, including the U.S., don’t buy that claim.  It looks like there is no real deal to curtail Iran’s nuclear program, and that is going to mean trouble.  Both Saudi Arabia and Israel are very upset by the Iranian nuclear program.  They fear it could upset the balance of power in the Middle East.  Both countries have made threats against Iran.  Just this week, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, “Iran’s military nuclear program must be stopped, and Iran’s military nuclear program will be stopped.”  Netanyahu did not say how it would be stopped, but the prospects of a peaceful solution are not looking good. 

Obama Care is in big trouble, and it might take down some big insurance companies.  Moody’s is downgrading the outlook for the health insurance industry because of Obama Care.  Moody’s says, “If these things don’t work, it may have a longer and more detrimental effect on the industry. . . ” Meanwhile, Accenture has been brought in to fix HealthCare.gov.  It has to be done by mid-March.  Some industry experts say that a half billion lines of code need to be fixed or added.  If this is not done, one government document says the “healthcare law will be jeopardized.”  How do you think the potential failure of Obama Care could affect the debt ceiling debate?  You think the Obama Administration will need some cash to keep Obama Care and insurance companies solvent?  You think the Republicans in Congress are going to give it to him?  What a mess.  This could not only bankrupt some insurance companies, but also the country. 

There is no wonder why the President’s poll numbers are at fresh all-time lows.  This is why the President and the Democratic Party want to change the conversation to “income inequality.”  According to the polls, that is way down on the totem poll of priorities.  The economy and jobs are one and two for the majority of Americans.  You want to do something about income inequality?  Stop the $35 billion a month of Fed banker bailouts.  That is more than $400 billion a year!  You want to really help people?  Fix the economy.  Don’t just keep giving us spin such as mind control headlines that use the word “recovery” when there is no real recovery.  

Why isn’t the main stream media doing real stories such as continued money laundering by big banks?  Whistleblower Everett Stern says money laundering for terrorists is still going on at HSBC.  He blew the whistle last year, and HSBC bank paid a nearly $2 billion fine last year for laundering money for drug cartels and terrorists.  Where is the NSA when it comes to this?  You launder money for terrorists and you get fined?  No jail time?  No felony charges?  Doesn’t the NSA call Edward Snowden a traitor?  Hasn’t he been charged with multiple felonies?  Isn’t laundering money for terrorists treason?

            Of course the money is not ours. Does not it say, ‘Federal Reserve Note’? It does not say, ‘Ugly Reserve Note’ nor ‘America Reserve Note’. Therefore, it is the note of the Federal Reserve. Therefore, they write the Notes and they that play it also owns the debt that goes along with it. Therefore, the Federal Reserve is loaning all the players the Note.

            Whoever owns the Federal Reserve is also the same folks running the debt that we players will pay–and pay dearly we will. The NWO….

    The real ‘bubble’ forming Greg, is the bubble in LIES, Double-standards and rank Hypocrisy of the U.S. government and its Wall Street cronies. The citizenry is (finally?) beginning to see that something is very wrong here and that trust has been broken – on many different levels. What follows the breach in the people’s trust, is confidence. But while the The Power Elite could care less about whether Joe-the-plumber trusts them or not, they can ill-afford for Joe-the-plumber to lose $confidence – especially in the $currency. And it is precisely the currency that is headed next for a breach of trust, but the trigger will not come from within but rather, the fuse will be lit from outside our borders, far out of reach from the long arm of the Exchange Stabilization Fund and the folks at the State Department. Major change is in motion –

      Agent P I have seldom agreed with your comments. Until now. You said It is precisely the currency that is headed next for a breach of trust, but “the trigger will not come from within but rather, the fuse will be lit from outside our borders,” far out of reach from the long arm of the Exchange Stabilization Fund and the folks at the State Department.

        JC,
        You wrote, “Full grown adults should be able to disagree, and still be civil”. Well said my friend.
        That’s the difference between most conservatives and this current crop of so called liberal. Liberals believe free speech and civility stops when it diverges from their evil and wrong headed views.

    • TORNasunder

      I concur AgentP. What is happening now is that the truth and the narrative are moving farther apart and at a greater rate. As reality continues to kick more and more people in the gut the lies become more apparent. TPTB want a major change, and on a worldwide scale. I believe a global financial meltdown or WWIII would provide the necessary ‘problem’ to fulfill their hegelian dialetic. It does not need to start in the West, and most likely will not since they’ll want to ‘blame’ some other country for ‘starting’ the problem.

  3. Jim G

    Greg I enjoy your astute commentaries and you are generally right on the mark. Only bone of contention was your statements that ObamaCare COULD bankrupt the country. Of course, you and many others know the country is already bankrupt and at a point of no return. It would have been more accurate to just state that ObamaCare will hasten the inevitable end to the USS Titanic, which has already hit the proverbial iceberg.

    Keep up the good work.

  5. Albert Tesla

    On Israel and the Middle East.

    I got a lot of love for good Jewish people, good Muslim people, and good Christian people.

    But when I look at Israel (and the middle east in general), I see so much hypocrisy and just sheer insanity

    I think the blame game can evenly be dispersed between all Abrahamic religions, and indeed each religion has suffered persecution one way or another. Jews during holocaust, the Muslims of Yugoslavia, The Christians of ancient Rome, just some examples.

    But what the hell is going on with these people?
    I read a book about the prophet Muhammad ( I was more so interested in his tactics of conquering the middle east rather then religious significance). When he conquered his foes in battle, he would then welcome them with open arms under his banner, and take them IN WITH NO PUNISHMENT IF THEY WERE CHRISTIANS AND JEWS. that’s how he was able to hold such vasts amounts of land, by making EVERYONE HAPPY.

    ….

    What happened to this mentality that Islam once possessed? where the hell did it go? God knows how many examples of Muslim’s erasing Christians and Jews off the map exist, i thought the prophet Muhammad was the figure they strive to be like, yet somewhere down the line the “heads” of this religion completely lost a grasp of this beautiful idea.

    Again, blame game is even though. Not just Muslims messing up, its everyone. Israel makes NO sense to me whatsoever….Before WW2, Jews did not have a nation….Due to the acts of Germany….they then are given a piece of land in the middle east? Why is the middle east suffering and having to pay for the errors of nazi germany?!? Why wasn’t a chunk of land given to the Jewish people in GERMANY they are the ONES WHO STARTED THIS WHOLE MESS….they should be the ones who pay the price! Hasidic Jews, who PRACTICE THE TORAH WITH EVERY DETAIL IN MIND…are FOR THE MOST PART AGAINST ISRAEL BEING A JEWISH STATE….

    And Christians, i’m getting tired off writing so much, so i’ll just wrap this one up by saying the other day on the news i saw a clip about the pope, they showed him with a solid gold cross on his neck the size of my face. Enufffff SAID.

    Again, sheer insanity.

    why cant they all just SHARE….like how GOD would want it to be?! Oh yeh, politics, that’s why.

    Israel is like a ticking time bomb….its a small nation surrounded by misguided Muslims…Its the equivalent of putting a mouse around ten cats….And i think this was intended by the powers that be ( i wish everyone in Israel, and the world in general, good health and prosperity, but its a harsh reality.)

    Sun Tzu Art Of War – Out of chaos, comes opportunity. Israel might possibly be that ticking time bomb of chaos, and the opportunity? One world government.

    • Galaxy 500

      Albert Tesla, any kin to Nicoli? Hate to break this to you but Israel was a nation of the Jewish people for hundreds of years. God gave the land of Israel to the Jews and said that when they come back, which happened in the 1940s, they would never be pushed out again. The Jews are fighting for their lives. You see, last time someone said they would kill them all and let God sort them out, they didn’t take them seriously, to their own detriment. The Arabs are saying this again but this time they believe.

      • Sidj

        Just for historical context: God gave the land of Canaan to the 12 tribes descended from Jacob (Israel). Judah (the Jews) was one of those tribes. The scriptures say the other tribes will also one day return.

    • Sidj

      I read a book about Islam too. It noted that when the muslims conquered other peoples, the muslims collected tributes from those peoples as a recurring income. For a long time only arabs were allowed to become muslim because muslims did not have to pay any tributes. Later that rule changed which allowed non-arabs such as the Persians (Iran) to become muslim too. Lingering rivalries such as this may be a reason why arab muslims don’t want Iran (Persians) to get too powerful in the muslim world.

    (Lie #1- Is a joke. Or is it ?)

    Lie #2 – The Affordable Care Act will help everyone get Health Insurance? Wrong. Did you know that in Missouri if your income is below the federal poverty line of $11,490. for an individual or $15,510. for a couple you can’t enroll in the government exchange and get a subsidy or tax credit? Guess what ? You can’t enroll in Medicaid either because Missouri opted out of Medicaid expansion. You fall into a coverage gap where your only option is to buy coverage off exchange where the rates are about 50% higher. What do you think most people in this situation will do? That’s right go without Health Insurance. Brilliant law !

    Lie #3- Peace talks in the Middle East about Syria and Iran? Don’t make me laugh. I have relatives called up for duty 6 months ago, who have yet to return home. Assad is toast because the Saudi’s want him gone, and right now they are the only ones backing the dollar.

    I agree things look stark in Syria but the global financial markets are in even greater risk of imploding. Many deals can be struck to avoid war which will benefit all the parties. NOTHNG can be done to avert the collapsing of multiple debt driven centrally planned bubbles.
    A war would have the effect of crashing the markets and driving silver and gold higher- they don’t want that-they want to preserve the markets. I think war becomes a bigger risk AFTER the markets collapse and it will probably be Germany, China or a domestic event that triggers it.http://smaulgld.com/how-germany-and-china-could-mess-up-the-feds-taper-plans/

    Greg, Iran will never destroy their nuclear program they have worked so hard to get and they announce that almost daily now. They have only agreed to “hold” still from improving (enriching) any further, that is what they agreed to, nothing more. The U.S. Administration & the State Department was in such a hurry to get a “deal” it took the deal hoping Iran the “non destruction” issue would not come out publicly. The reason Iran did agreed to the “deal” in the first place was that once they got their sanctions lifted they know they can start up again at any time and the West will be hard pressed to put the sanctions back in place; probably impossible. At that point they get their cake and eat it to, no sanctions, start up again and go nuclear. Obama didn’t miss the non-destruction issue, the Administration was just hoping it wouldn’t come to light before it could slap itself on the back for a job well done and call the “deal” a success. The wild card, of course, was Israel who knew the “deal” was not a dismantling of the program, only a halting. Israel keep the pressure up including regular press releases until Iran came out publicly and brought it in the open (that they weren’t destroying anything); but not until the first part of the sanctions were already lifted and the “deal” was well under way and no one wants to go back to square one again. Frankly, relations & policy with and about Libya, Syria, Egypt, Saudi Arabia (just to mention a few) have all have been blunders, mishaps, & miscalculations during the Obama Administration, it should be no surprise that they would mess up the Iran nuclear policy matter as well.
    After 6 years of Obama its clear to me that although I believe to be a nice guy, good father and husband, etc., his community organizer mentality & skills, and no matter how smart he is, is just not up to the job of international politics. The proof is in the pudding as my learned father used to say.

        No regional war. You’ve got Lybians, Iranians, Palestinians, and Iraq’s fighting in Syria. You’ve got Pakistanis and Iranians fighting in Afghanistan. Etc, etc, etc
        The USA under the Obamanation is giving arms to both sides and is dumbfounded when our Ambassador to Libya is murdered by the terrorist we shipped from prisions in Iraq to Libya. Looks like an undeclared regional war to me. All of this chaos caused by a person whose beliefs about the world and our enemies don’t mesh with reality.

These liberal wackadoodles don’t understand that you can not arm or provide technology to your enemies without it biting you in the arse later.

    Tesla,

    If you do not diagnose right you miss the picture and get lost in small details and eventually you will miss the treatment, wrong medicine kills the patient.

    Please allow me to put it the way i see it, if you do not like it throw it behind your back, no problem here.

    God created every thing for a reason, a very good one that is.
    TO KNOW HIM.
    That shows how great god is in creating us with the choice of following or disobeying the creator and by having that choice we will be responsible for the consequences.

    Satin out of envy to Adam (because Adam was created to be the khalifa of god on earth….hence came the name of khalifa in islamic state…) he decided to be his enemy from day one by luring him into disobeying god and failing the test of staying away from the only tree he was asked by god to not eat from as a test.

    From there the CONFLICT began.

    When god sent prophets to guide people you find throughout history believers and disbelievers, the purpose of sending the prophets is to send with them the manual (religion) that keeps people relations within the boundaries the creator outlined so they remain happy during their test period (their lifetime).

    Absolutely throughout human history satin did not sit still and will never do, he wants to through EVERY human out of track same way he threw their grandfather ADAM out of track.

    THAT IS THE WHOLE STORY which you know and every one knows but the difference and major difference is when some one follows satin and thinks he is following god.
    THAT IS THE CULPRIT.
    THAT IS THE TEST.
    how do you know? how can you tell?
    God did not leave us alone and he told us throughout time with those manuals he sent with his prophets how to differentiate, he gave us the tools (brain, senses, mind, consciousness…..etc) which if we work in a neutral way WE WILL REACH THE TRUTH and WE WILL NEVER GO ASTRAY.

    Since you talked about muslims among other beliefs i would like to draw your attention to their holy book QURAN.
    IT IS THE ONLY BOOK THAT WAS TRANSFERRED FROM CHEST TO CHEST OVER 1500 years without any CHANGES to it.
    If you go from east of the globe to the west and from north to south you find all muslims recite ONE QURAN!!! that deserves taking notice.
    And it is the last manual god sent to humans to follow . If you read it you will know why.
    NOW I WILL SAY SOMETHING VERY IMPORTANT HERE:

    Under no stretch of imagination i am saying follow what i say, and in no way I am underestimating other beliefs, all am saying here is am giving you my way of seeing things and it is up to you to take it or leave it.

    At any rate God will decide the outcome when Jesus comes back and kills the Anti Christ.
    Only then the whole world will understand what was in Quran and what the prophet Muhammad (who believes in Jesus) had said all along.

    • On The Beach

      Mohammad~
      Jesus said:
      “By this all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love among yourselves.” (John 13:35)
      Such love reaches across racial, social, and national boundaries, drawing people together in genuine brotherhood. So strong is this love that it sets them apart as being truly different. When the nations go to war, who have enough love for their Christian or Muslim brothers in other lands that they refuse to take up arms and kill them and or certainly wouldn’t cut out their fellow believers heart out and eat it?
      Mohammad you do not believe in Christendom’s Trinity. You worship the one true God, the creator of heaven and earth. Am I right that you believe that Jesus was a prophet? . . . Was he a true prophet? . . . Then what he said was from God and if other teachings do not agree with it, they must be from another source, is that not so?
      Isa. 2:-4: ” It must occur in the final part of the days (last days) that the mountain (government) of the house of Jehovah will become firmly established above the top of the mountains (governments) . . . And he will certainly render judgment among the nations and set matters straight respecting many peoples. And they will have to beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning shears. Nation will not lift up sword against nation, neither will they learn war anymore.”
      (Those that have heeded Jehovah /Allah’s judgment give evidence that he is their God.)
      2 Cor. 10:3, 4: “Though we walk in the flesh, we do not wage warfare according to what we are in the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not fleshly, but powerful by God for overturning strongly entrenched things.” (Paul here states that he never resorted to fleshly weapons, such as trickery, high- sounding language, or carnal weapons, to protect the congregation against false teachings)
      Luke 6:27, 28: “I [Jesus Christ] say to you who are listening, Continue to love your enemies, to do good to those hating you, to bless those cursing you, to pray for those who are insulting you.”
      1st. Corinthians 13: 4 L O V E N E V E R F A I L S !

    Just imagine Russian influence is coming back to Jerusalem.
    THAT IS A MILESTONE!
    As a reminder to viewer, Russia is the representative to eastern Christianity and Jerusalem is the heart of it.
    Russia is making a come back to holy land just because US is NOT RELIABLE!
    Another milestone will be Hagia-Sohpia cathedral in Turkey and I have no doubt in my mind that the Russian’s eyes on it are like a hawk’s eyes on its prey.

      There is a saying that history never repeats but it does have a tendency to rhyme.
      That is another way of saying that we are evolutionary. We develop, grow and are more dependant on what mother nature has to offer, whilst having a tendency to become disruptive and aggressive from time to time, when things aren’t in harmony.
      What is occurring now (albeit on different scales and levels) seems very analogous to what we could term “seasons” or “cycles” or “rhythms” or “patterns”. We have been here before…..all impressions are we will be reminded of that experience very soon.

  22. 8Ball

    Yup, the world is in a mess… Americans keep re-electing the usual suspects and then wonder why nothing changes. As someone once said: “As you make your bed, so you must lie (up)on it.” or You have to suffer the consequences of what you do.

    Carl Sagan was a smart guy and he must have thought about all of this at some point in his life. Here is one of his quotations:
    “One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.” (Carl Sagan)

    Digging into the MSM. Rot is where you find it!

    For close to 100 years or a little more, the Bancroft family owned the Dow Jones Company, which included:
    The Wall Street Journal
    Barron’s Magazine
    Factiva
    Market Watch
    Brummell Magazine
    Wealth Bulletin
    Smart Money
    On December 13, 2007 the Bancroft family sold The Dow Jones Company for $5 billion to News Corp then headed by Rupert Murdoch of Fox Network fame. He turns around and sells 90% of Dow Jones Indexes for $607.5 million (which includes the Dow Jones Industrial Average) to the CME Group of COMEX fame. So, guess who now calls the shots in the so-called “free financial media”? The rot goes deep.

    A note on the economy – I live in Illinois and we were just notified by a friend that propane costs are going to rise substantially very soon, and the amount of propane we can buy will be limited on top of that. We paid a relatively low cost of $1.87 per gallon of propane this September when we filled our tank. Apparently there was a propane pipe disruption to the Midwest, because yesterday the price rose to $5.00 a gallon, and is expected to rise soon to $9.00 a gallon because now they’re going to have to truck the propane in from Texas (so the rumor is going). My husband and I went to the hardware store today, and about four couples were buying electric room heaters. They said they were on propane and were getting the heaters “just in case” the propane ran out. Oh, and it’s expected to be 5 below tonight, too.

    • Anne Elliott

      Correction – it was 5 below last night.

      • Galaxy 500

        Wow,
        stay warm. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

      • TORNasunder

        Anne this is not really about the economy per se, it is about the very harsh cold winter and obviously people were not prepared. I read a good article about the propane shortages last week, in fact do a search on ‘propane shortage’ and you’ll find plenty of articles. The main problem is not an actual lack of propane, but of getting the propane to where it is needed(from the SW-W to the N-NE). Also most of the transport of propane is moved by truck.

    • Rebecca

      I would add to Anne’s real world reporting:
      Last fall it cost about $65 to $70 to fill a 100-lb. propane tank.
      Today (right now) it costs $144.
      I personally know a elderly lady in Arkansas who is wearing layers of layers of clothing, trying to keep warm — and wearing gloves inside her house because her hands a cold.
      My son spoke to an elderly lady here who said she has to keep her thermostat at 50°, because heating fuel costs are so high.
      For those heating with wood, the talk is that usage has more than doubled this winter. We are looking for 20-30 below zero temps again beginning Monday a.m.
      This has been a bitterly cold winter for us and the local NWS meteorologist told me that there is not going to be any early “thawing” this spring.

  27. Steven Starr

    Paul Craig Roberts made the point (in his most recent interview) that he wasn’t sure what the Federal government *wouldn’t do* . . . that includes starting another war, right? Everything is going completely to hell here in the former democratic republic of the USA, so it seems to me that it is time for another WAR to distract whatever attention the public has left. But if they pick a fight with Russia, who knows where that will end? The damned fools are likely to get us all killed.

    Hello,
    I always look forward to your interviews, they are so full of information I can share with others. Thank you for taking the time of put this all together and get it out here to us.

    As someone who grew up a 1950s kid, I am beyond disgusted at what we have allowed this country to become. I remember the mid 1960s as being a time when you could feel things begin to go the wrong way only to accelerate wildly in the past ten years.

    After watching what happened to Ron Paul in the last election, I have no doubt they will do everything possible to prevent us from ever having a president who will actually be able to represent we the people. That being said, I still have hope thanks to people such as yourself spreading facts as opposed to propaganda, we may be able to all come together and take back and rebuild our once great republic.

    First you give us all this bad news and numerous things to worry about, and then you end your message with ‘….have a good weekend’.

    On recovery, people have recovered. The Big Banks have recovered, the warmongers have recovered, the phony mortgages have recovered, the POTUS and 535 have recovered, con artists have recovered, the phony stocks have recovered, liberalism and communism have recovered, Buffet and Soros have recovered, billionaires have recovered. You see, you missed our recovery.

    On stocks, I think I am ready for their crash. I am tired of my friends bragging about the ‘killing’ they have made in stocks since 2009. I tell them why, but they don’t care. They think I am the idiot. Thus I don’t care when it crashes either (albeit crash after I cash in my last mutual fund–not before).

    On war, I hope the POTUS and 535 have a great time fighting for us. We’ll leave the light on for them….

    Hi Greg,

    Long time watcher of your programs and first-time responder. I love how you put facts together and how you aren’t afraid of both covering and going to controversial subjects for information (i.e. Karen Hudes etc.) if it helps to make sense of what is going on in the world.

    In that vein, I have come across a rather astute piece of detective work by a blogger who outlines what has been a long-term, planned process leading us to where we are today: on the brink of financial Armageddon, with China coming out on top in the end:

    http://blog.redefininggod.com/2013/10/24/the-new-brics-financial-system-what-theyre-not-telling-you.aspx

    Dismiss his comments about ‘the cabal’ and ‘illuminati’ and focus on the facts as he presents them. The charts he presents are particularly eye-opening. It makes for quite a compelling tale, helping explain what is happening, as well as giving us a way to predict how things might be ‘going down’ in the near future.

    not hearing anyone reporting this:

    on my W2 form, my employer reported what was paid towards my healthcare plan. it also had a statement that this was not taxable, and was being report for my information. (check your W2 box 12)

    what most people don’t know is in 2016 your healthcare plan will become taxable income.

    Our healthcare plan is $16,000 for the family plan, which means come 2016 my federal income tax bill will be going up about $5,000.

    A 40 percent excise tax will be assessed, beginning in 2018, on the cost of coverage for health plans that exceed a certain annual limit ($10,200 for individual coverage and $27,500 for self and spouse or family coverage). Health insurance issuers and sponsors of self-funded group health plans must pay the tax of 40 percent of any dollar amount beyond the caps that is considered “excess” health spending.

    Greg, the market (Wall Street) on Friday is worried, what they refuse to note about the source of their worries poor employment. They are concerned with profits being scantly. But Walmart announced Friday that 2 percent of Sam Clubs employees will be laid off, citing among others, poor holiday performance; this is just the tip of the “new” 2014 recession coming. Laid off people can’t drive the economy making profits for Wall Street thereby rising up stock prices. Frankly, you simply can’t give you jobs away for short term profits, then have your stock price climb to heaven and stay there forever, because at some point you can’t sell your products because of not enough disposable income to buy them. The economy is getting ready to implode, watch the FED stop the tapering, that will help Wall Street, but once again will not help the unemployed which are becoming a real threat to the MSM’s pravda reporting that all is well. By the way, the debt ceiling comes back into play in Feb. and I’ll be you a buck against a dime it will be raised.

    Let me start here. i have read the Torah (old testament obviously), the Bible, and the Qur’an. In my opinion, my brains, senses, mind,, and conciseness all function at pretty “good” levels.

    I learn things with NO BIAS…meaning when i read something, i completely negate all outside influences of what i’m reading, meaning factors like “popularity’ and “fame” are something that doesn’t effect how I take in information, that way, its i and i only who is influencing my view on a “thing’, so really, i don’t care if someone tells me “well look, 40 percent of the world believe in this, it must be true!” . I and only I filter and alter my views on things, nobody else.

    Im guessing your Muslim with a name such as Mohammed. Just my assumption, i could be wrong.

    I love learning abut everything, one of my favorite things to do is see how all peoples in the world live and view life. I’ve studied Islam and the history of the middle east / Sumeria for quite some time.

    Correct me if im wrong –

    In islam ( note that all abrahamic religions share this story to an extent) the story with the devil is (in a quick summary)

    God created Jinn of smokeless fire. Then, he created Angels of fire, then he created man, from Clay. Iblis (lucifer) was Allah’s (gods) favorite/loved angel before creating man.

    Then, one day, out of the blue, Allah (god) comes around and tells Lucifer and all his Angeles “Hey everyone, basically I am now creating new beings out of clay, who are superior to you because they are made in my image unlike yourselves, so from now on you are supposed to bow and worship them to an extent”

    The Qur’an then goes to say in detail that 1/3 rd of all Angels with Lucifer leading the pack revolted.

    1/3rd of all angels sheesh thats alot? seems like a decent amount of angels agreed with lucifer on the injustice that was being done on the “angel race” on labeling them inferior in compariosn humans made of clay. The American revolution was started by by about less then 10 % of the population so I’ve heard.

    Hmmm, this sounds so familiar to me, kind of very similar to the whole “master” race aryan ” concept that was pushed by the Nazi’s, you know, my race is better then your race bow before me?

    So, i gave you an example above, that in my opinion shows how the supposed “uncorrupted” qur’an you speak of, is infact, unfortunately tainted (like all abrahamic religious texts…again, in my opinion). Don’t get me wrong though…the “cores” of these religions are indeed pristine.

    That entire story above, shows that the qur’an promotes an underlying almost subliminal agenda of “do not revolt”.

    That story to me (again in my opinion) says that Lucifer was not some deviant lying deceitful “thing”, when I read it, it seemed to me like he was revolutionist fighting for the rights of his people in the name of freedom.

    How would you feel? If one day your country/state/place of living was forced to one day worship someone who was supposedly “just better then you”. Sounds quite pro colonialist / totalitarianism driven does it not? That helps all those royal families in Islamic nations to keep a nice steady grip on the stability of their lands.

    The Colonists to the British
    Somalians to Musslani
    Indian/ghandi to Brits
    Che, Mandela.
    Northern Ireland conflict
    Palestinian conflict
    Ukraine to Russia.

    all examples of humans resisting similar forms of oppression. Not saying i agree with all of them fully or if any, but again, examples of humans rising up in because they felt one way or another, oppressed.

    All consciousness, living, breathing,individual, thinking, “entities” in this world, and all the worlds in between, all (in my opinion) have UNIVERSALLY GIVEN RIGHT of being FREE. Angels can’t be “free?” i don’t agree with it.

    Doesn’t fit into my eyes of “god like”. The god i tend to believe to exist doesn’t possess the trait of a tyrant.

    I’m well read, i like understanding how other nations/people behave, believe, and think. Im not a Muslim, christian, or a jew I’m not saying Islam is a complete lie and bullshit, i’m just trying to say that at the end of the day, the bible, Qur’an, torah, etc are good at its core, but they are not invulnerable to corruption. Humans are amazingly deceitful and cunning its engineered in our survival. : ) and some are VERYYYYYYY good at it.

    What a coincidence, this story really helps the royal families of islamic states help keep a better grip on the masses.

      Allow me to correct some false misconceptions you have mentioned in you post.
      No where in Quran it was mentioned that 1/3 of angels revolted (angels do not disobey).
      No where in Quran it was mentioned that anegls are made of fire, (they are made of light and in arabic they are called “noorani” creatures which means light.
      Iblis is not an anegl.
      Iblis is JIN and yes you are correct when you said he was created from fire.
      Angels do not disobey god, in many occasions in Quran it was mentioned that they do what they are ordered to do and never disobey. However Allah gave the freedom to Jin and Humans to disobey because they will be responsible for their actions in the day after.
      No where in Quran it says that humans were made in the shape or appearance of Allah. God is in no way confined to a shape or a place or time.
      Lucifer (Iblis) fell in the hatred of Adam and envy that lead him to the curse from Allah, and he vowed to lead astray who ever follows him from Adam’s offspring, HE HAS NO CONTROL OVER BELIEVERS.
      And yes …. Quran never got tainted because Allah vowed to preserve it since it is the last message (at least this is from my side as a muslim and others are free to believe what they wish).

      Again please take my notes in an open chest since am only explaining my side as a muslim.
      To each his or her belief, after all we will stand in front of the creator one day and answer some tough questions, we have the opportunity now to examine all the possibilities, but once the bell rings and the test is over (when we DIE) then that is the point of no return, and do not tell me then i did not tell you and explain to you, and vice versa if you were right you will definitely tell me and let me know then, I FOR SOME REASON AM SO SEREAN AND COMFORTABLE WITH MY BELIEF!!!!

    Is The Coming Week Going To Be The One We Have Been Warning About?

    Well I won’t stick my neck out that far just yet but every indication is that it’s going to be highly volatile week at the very least. If the last few years have taught us anything it is to not underestimate the central bank’s ability to print even more vast quantities of monopoly money to cover up the failures of fiat policy.

    After closing out last week on the DJIA with two down days in a row and Friday alone down 318 points; the DJIA futures are showing an opening position down a further 335 points as of 3:00 PM EDLST. If fact all of the markets (those covered on Bloomberg at least) with the exception of China’s smaller CSI index, are showing in the red across the board.

    Both the Turkish Lira and the Argentine Peso (again) are in free fall. The Venezuelan Bolivar has already been devalued another 40% but that is largely just plain old socialist ineptitude and corruption. How many other national currencies teeter on the brink is hard to tell but I would bet it’s more than a few.

    The question then becomes; Just how much more monopoly money is new FED chairman Janet Yellen prepared to print and dump into global markets to stem the fall and how quickly can she do it? Any hesitation may prove to be instantaneously fatal. Not that even quick action will do anything but slow the trend. To reverse it at this point is all but impossible.

    The key will be the response to more US printing by the central bankers and finance ministers across the globe and how effective US pressure will be on them not to start dumping US and other national debt paper. If private holders of Treasury paper start selling and the rates climb in response to falling prices the only choice left may be the suspend the markets under the guise of “waiting for cooler heads to prevail.”

    Then there will be the reaction of the individual bank depositor to take into account. The backlash to HSBC’s attempt last week to impose withdrawal limits was swift and decisive, leading HSBC to announce that they felt that policy was justified as in the customer’s best interest but will be rescinded never the less.

    So if you have spent at least a modicum of effort to prepare and defend yourself against this eventuality, sit back and watch and perhaps indulge in a bit of schadenfreude. The rest of you; Well you were warned now weren’t you? And no neither Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton nor Jeb Bush will be able to save you from you stubborn refusal to believe any of this was even possible.

    This sounds ominous, but maybe I’m seeing doom everywhere even when it’s not there.

      Judith, Davis.
      The Banking system will be collapsed when the NWO elites have the new exchange system in place to replace the Britton Woods system currently being used. Hint. Think Titanic. When did the ship go down? Right after the wealthy secured their possessions and were a safe distance away.

      • Liquid Motion

        The Ship is Sinking and the Wealthy have already moved their wealth to safer ground. Like the people scrambling for a life-jacket on the Titanic….its our turn to be serenaded by the string quartet and literally face the music.

    First of all nobody should believe anything the White House says. They are all liars and traitors.
    Second: There is absolutely no evidence what so ever that Iran is pursuing a nuclear weapons program. This has been confirmed by the IAEA, every single U.S. intelligence agency and Israhell’s as well. Nuttybombyou has been saying this for twenty years. This man is a lying psychopath. Do not trust anything he says to even remotely resemble the truth. All zionists are liars.
    The only belligerent country in the middle east is israhell. It always has been and always will be as long as that little toilet exists. Israhell has between 200 and 400 nuclear war heads on MIRV and threatens too use them on everybody. Remember the Samson option.
    The same thing goes for Syria. This is all for the benefit of zionist israhell who actually used a small thermo nuclear warhead in Syria. The proof is 100% positive.
    Israhell is not to be trusted what so ever.
    Saudi Arabia and Bandar bin Laden are behind the violence in Syria…it’s all for a natural gas pipeline that will benefit the Saud family.
    Unfortunately U.S. foreign policy is run completely by AIPAC and the zionist 5th columnists who have infiltrated the government.
