crash

Wall Street banks are getting hit by cyber attacks every single minute of every single day.  It is a massive onslaught that is not highly publicized because the bankers do not want to alarm the public.  But as you will see below, one big Wall Street bank is spending 250 million dollars a year just by themselves to combat this growing problem.
The truth is that our financial system is not nearly as stable as most Americans think that it is.  We have become more dependent on technology than ever before, and that comes with a potentially huge downside.
An EMP or a massive cyberattack could conceivably take down part or all of our banking system at any time.

ebola

If hundreds of doctors and nurses are becoming infected with Ebola, what chance is the general public going to have?  This is not just a question that many of us are asking.  As you will see below, this is a question that the World Health Organization is asking.   When dozens of health workers started getting Ebola, nobody could explain how it was happening.
During past ebola outbreaks, a few health workers have contracted the virus.  But once the virus was identified and proper safety measures were put into place, “cases among medical staff dropped dramatically”.  Unfortunately, the WHO says that this outbreak is “different” and the virus continues to spread among medical personnel…
We could potentially be on the verge of the greatest health crisis that any of us have ever seen.

WW3

Russian soldiers and Ukrainian soldiers are now shooting at each other in eastern Ukraine.
Could this conflict ultimately lead us down the road to World War 3?
The Russians seem themselves as “the good guys” in this conflict and so does the western world.  But that is how most wars start.  Both sides usually feel morally justified at the start of a conflict.
In the final analysis, however, is it really going to matter very much who was “right” and who was “wrong” if the end result is World War 3?

crack srsrocco collapse

If you thought that the earthquake that struck northern California on Sunday was something, just wait until you see what is coming in the years ahead.  As you will read about below, we live at a time when earthquake activity is dramatically increasing.  This is especially true of the “Ring of Fire” which runs roughly along the outer perimeter of the Pacific Ocean.  Approximately 81 percent of all big earthquakes occur along the Ring of Fire, and the entire west coast of the United States falls within the danger zone.  Over the past few years, we have seen huge earthquake after huge earthquake strike various areas along the Ring of Fire, but up until now the California coastline has mostly been spared. 
However, there are indications that this may be about to change in a big way.

police state

If I had a cure for Ebola, I could never sell it to you.  I don’t have a cure for Ebola of course, but even if I did I could never promote it.   And if you have a cure for Ebola and you start promoting it on the Internet, a SWAT team could soon show up at your door.  Unfortunately, I am not kidding.  Even if you have made a discovery that could potentially save millions of lives, that will not earn you an ounce of mercy from the FDA.   In fact, the FDA has just issued a statement that contains a chilling warning for anyone that is claiming that they know how to prevent or cure Ebola.
FDA bureaucrats are scouring the Internet right now for any sign of an Ebola cure or treatment.
When they find one, they are likely to crack down very hard based on their history.  So if you do have a cure for Ebola, you might want to be very, very careful.  You could end up having men with automatic weapons conducting a military-style raid on your home when you least expect it.

Earthquake-Map-300x200

In the wake of this morning’s 6.0 quake in the San Francisco Bay area- the largest quake in over 25 years in the area, perhaps it is time to finally take notice of the massive crack in the earth forming near the New Madrid Fault. 
Is The BIG ONE just around the corner? 

The 30 statistics that you are about to read prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that the middle class in America is being systematically destroyed.  Once upon a time, the United States had the largest and most prosperous middle class in the history of the world, but now that is changing at a staggering pace.
Yes, the stock market has soared to unprecedented heights this year and there are a few isolated areas of the country that are doing rather well for the moment. 
But overall, the long-term trends that are eviscerating the middle class just continue to accelerate
.
In this economy, you don’t even have to lose your job to fall out of the middle class.
The following are 30 stats demonstrating the destruction of the US Middle Class: 

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.

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”. 

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.

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.

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…

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.

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.

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…
