Here We Go: Police Shoot And Kill Another Young Black Male Near Ferguson

On Tuesday, police in north St. Louis shot and killed a 23-year-old African-American male that was suspected of robbing a convenience store.  It is being reported that it was “suicide by cop” as he was brandishing a knife and kept coming toward the police even after they ordered him to stop and drop the knife multiple times.
Within moments of the shooting, there were reports that crowds were already gathering at the scene.
Needless to say, this will inflame the riots that have been going on for more than a week in nearby Ferguson.
The protesters in Ferguson aren’t going to care if the police followed proper protocol or not. 
All they are going to care about is the fact that the police have shot and killed another young black male. [Read more...]

14 Reasons Why The U.S. Economy’s Bubble Of False Prosperity May Be About To Burst

BubbleA major event just happened in the financial markets that we have not seen since the financial crisis of 2008.  If you rely on the mainstream media for your news, you probably didn’t even hear about it.
Just prior to the last stock market crash, a massive amount of money was pulled out of junk bonds.
Now it is happening again

In fact, as you will read about below, the market for high yield bonds just experienced “a 6-sigma event”.  [Read more...]

Ferguson Is A Perfect Example Of How Quickly The Streets Of America Can Descend Into Chaos

Rioting, looting, burning down stores and shooting police officers – is this about to become the “new normal” in America?   What we just witnessed happen in the streets of Ferguson, Missouri is a prime example of how quickly the streets of America can descend into chaos.
There is so much anger and frustration in this country, especially among our young people, that all it takes is a “trigger event” to spark a wildfire.  In this case, it was the shooting of an unarmed black teen by a police officer.  According to the police, 18-year-old Michael Brown got into a physical altercation with an officer and was subsequently shot.  Word spread quickly throughout the community, and protests were rapidly organized.
But the protests didn’t stay peaceful.  People started chanting “kill the police” and throwing rocks and bottles.  Store windows were smashed, the looting began, and people went absolutely crazy.  And it wasn’t just a few people that were doing the looting.  Huge mobs of people looted stores all over Ferguson
Ferguson is a perfect example of how quickly the streets of America can descend into Chaos.

CDC Getting Dozens Of Calls ‘About People Who Are Ill After Traveling In Africa’

Should we be alarmed that the CDC has received “several dozen calls” from hospitals around the country “about people who are ill after traveling in Africa”?  As you will read about below, a lot more Ebola testing has been going on around the nation than we have been hearing about in the mainstream media.  I can understand the need to keep people calm, but don’t we have a right to know what is really going on?  And the media has also been very quiet about the fact that Ebola is now potentially spreading to even more countries.  As you will read about below, a Liberian man just died from Ebola in Morocco, and a man that traveled to Saudi Arabia from Sierra Leone on Sunday night is being tested for Ebola after exhibiting “symptoms of the viral hemorrhagic fever”.  Top officials in the U.S. keep assuring us that everything is going to be just fine, but the truth is that this is a crisis that is beginning to spiral out of control.

25 Critical Facts About This Ebola Outbreak That Every American Needs To Know

silverWhat would a global pandemic look like for a disease that has no cure and that kills up to 90% of the people that it infects?  Let’s hope that we don’t get to find out, but what we do know is that more than 100 health workers that were on the front lines of fighting this disease have ended up getting it themselves.
The top health officials in the entire world are sounding the alarm and the phrase “out of control” is constantly being thrown around by professionals with decades of experience.
So should average Americans be concerned about Ebola?  If so, how bad could an Ebola outbreak in the U.S. potentially become?
The following are 25 critical facts about this Ebola outbreak that every American needs to know… [Read more...]

Richest 85 People Have More Money Than The Poorest 3.5 Billion Combined

The global economy is structured to systematically funnel wealth to the very top of the pyramid, and this centralization of global wealth is accelerating with each passing year.
According to the United Nations, 85 super wealthy people have more money than the poorest 3.5 billion people on the planet combined.  And 1.2 billion of those poor people live on less than $1.25 a day.  There is something deeply, deeply broken about a system that produces these kinds of results.  Seven out of every ten people on the planet live in countries where the gap between the wealthy and the poor has increased in the last 30 years.  Despite our technological advances, somewhere around a billion people go to bed hungry every single night.
It has been estimated that the wealthiest one percent currently have 110 trillion dollars.
That is 65 times more wealth than the bottom half of the global population combined.
They are hoarding wealth as we approach some of the most unstable days in all of human history.
And when our fundamentally flawed financial system finally does collapse, it will be the poor that will suffer the worst.

Flat Broke: 77 Million Americans Have Unpaid Debts “In Collections”

Did you know that 77 million Americans have unpaid debts that are “in collections” and that Congress is actually thinking about letting post offices offer payday loans?
We live in a country where almost everyone is drowning in debt and where most people are either flat broke or very close to flat broke.
The truth is that what we are experiencing right now is about as good as things are going to get for the U.S. economy. When the next crisis arrives, all of the numbers in the list  below are going to rapidly get a lot worse.
So enjoy the rest of this “bubble” while you still can.   It certainly will not last for too much longer.

The Epic Drought In The Western United States Is Starting To Become Apocalyptic

When scientists start using phrases such as “the worst drought” and “as bad as you can imagine” to describe what is going on in the western half of the country, you know that things are bad.  Thanks to an epic drought that never seems to end, we are witnessing the beginning of a water crisis that most people never even dreamed was possible in this day and age.  The state of California is getting ready to ban people from watering their lawns and washing their cars, but if this drought persists we will eventually see far more extreme water conservation measures than that.  And the fact that nearly half of all of the produce in America comes out of the state of California means that ultimately this drought is going to deeply affect all of us.  Food prices have already been rising at an alarming rate, and the longer this drought goes on the higher they will go.
Let us hope and pray that this drought is permanently broken at some point, because otherwise we could very well be entering an era of extreme water rationing, gigantic dust storms and crippling food prices.
The following are 20 signs that the epic drought in the western half of the United States is starting to become apocalyptic…

The Head Of ‘The Central Bank Of The World’ Warns That Another Great Financial Crisis May Be Coming

panic crashThe head of the BIS has just warned that another great financial crisis may be coming.
Most people have never heard of Jaime Caruana even though he is the head of an immensely powerful organization.  He has been serving as the General Manager of the Bank for International Settlements since 2009, and he will continue in that role until 2017.
Very few people realize that the BIS is at the very core of our centrally-planned global financial system.  So when Jaime Caruana speaks, people should listen.  And the fact that he recently warned that the global financial system is currently “more fragile” in many ways than it was just prior to the collapse of Lehman Brothers should set off all sorts of alarm bells.  [Read more...]

The Almighty Dollar Is In Peril As The Global ‘De-Dollarization’ Trend Accelerates

As the Obama administration continues to alienate almost everyone else around the entire planet, an increasing number of prominent international voices are starting to question why the U.S. dollar should be so overwhelmingly dominant in global trade.  Gazprom is now asking their large customers to start paying in currencies other than the dollar But this is not just a story about Russia any longer.  As you will read about below, China and South Korea have just signed a major agreement to facilitate trade with one another using their own national currencies, and even prominent French officials are now talking about the need to use the dollar less and the euro more.  John Williams of shadowstats.com recently said that things have never “been more negative” for the U.S. dollar, and he was right on the mark.  The power of the almighty dollar has allowed all of us living in the United States to enjoy an extremely high standard of living for decades, but as that power now fades it is going to have profound implications for the U.S. economy.  [Read more...]

18 Signs That The Global Economic Crisis Is Accelerating As We Enter The Last Half Of 2014

A lot of people that I talk to these days want to know “when things are going to start happening”.
Well, there are certainly some perilous times on the horizon, but all you have to do is open up your eyes and look to see the global economic crisis unfolding.  As you will see below, even central bankers are issuing frightening warnings about “dangerous new asset bubbles” and even the World Bank is declaring that “now is the time to prepare” for the next crisis.
Most Americans tend to only care about what is happening in the United States, but the truth is that serious economic trouble is erupting in South America, all across Europe and in Asian powerhouses such as China and Japan.
And the endless conflicts in the Middle East could erupt into a major regional war at just about any time.  We live in a world that is becoming increasingly unstable, and people need to understand that the period of relative stability that we are enjoying right now is extremely vulnerable and will not last long. 
The following are 18 signs that the global economic crisis is accelerating as we enter the last half of 2014… [Read more...]

Stone Cold Proof That Government Economic Numbers Are Being Highly Manipulated

How in the world does the government expect us to trust the economic numbers that they give us anymore? 
For a long time, many have suspected that they were being manipulated, but we don’t have to sit around and wonder if official economic statistics are being manipulated.
The truth is that even those that work inside the Federal Reserve admit they are being manipulated.
As you will see below we now have stone cold proof that this is indeed the case.

Inflation? Only If You Look At Food, Water, Gas, Electricity And Everything Else

Have you noticed that prices are going up rapidly?  If so, you are certainly not alone.  But Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen, the Obama administration and the mainstream media would have us believe that inflation is completely under control and exactly where it should be.  Perhaps if the highly manipulated numbers that they quote us were real, everything would be fine.  But of course the way that the inflation rate is calculated has been changed more than 20 times since the 1970s, and at this point it bears so little relation to reality that it is essentially meaningless.  Anyone that has to regularly pay for food, water, gas, electricity or anything else knows that inflation is too high.  In fact, if inflation was calculated the same way that it was back in 1980, the inflation rate would be close to 10 percent right now.

The Death Of The Rust Belt

Their names are familiar to all of us: Cleveland, Flint, Youngstown, Saginaw, Gary, Toledo, Reading, Akron, Flint and Buffalo were all once booming manufacturing cities that were absolutely packed with thriving middle class families.
But now most of the manufacturing jobs are gone and all of those cities are just shadows of their former selves.
We have a permanent epidemic of unemployment in this country.  Back in the 1980s, over 20 percent of the jobs in the U.S. were manufacturing jobs.  Today, only about 9 percent of the jobs in the U.S. are manufacturing jobs.
The Rust Belt is nearly dead.  [Read more...]

The United States Of Debt: Total US Debt Hits New Record High Of Nearly 60 Trillion Dollars!

Total DebtWhat would you say if I told you that Americans are nearly 60 TRILLION dollars in debt?  Well, it is true.  When you total up all forms of debt including government debt, business debt, mortgage debt and consumer debt, we are 59.4 trillion dollars in debt.  That is an amount of money so large that it is difficult to describe it with words.  For example, if you were alive when Jesus Christ was born and you had spent 80 million dollars every single day since then, you still would not have spent 59.4 trillion dollars by now.  And most of this debt has been accumulated in recent decades.  If you go back 40 years ago, total debt in America was sitting at about 2.2 trillion dollars.
Somehow over the past four decades we have allowed the total amount of debt in the United States to get approximately 27 times larger.  This is utter insanity, and anyone that thinks this is sustainable is completely deluded.
We are living in the greatest debt bubble of all time, and there is no way that this is going to end well.
Just check out the chart…
