Doomed in a Matrix of Lies

Paul Craig Roberts: "I found that solid facts and sound analysis
could not penetrate brainwashed and closed minds.
Washington’s eleven years of illegal aggression against Muslim countries – war crimes according to the Nuremberg trials of Nazis – have resulted in civilian deaths far in excess of military casualties and in a domestic American police state that has destroyed the rule of law and the constitutional protections of US citizens. Washington and its presstitutes have emphasized that these costs are necessary to save Americans from al-Qaeda terrorists, none of whom have ever been apprehended in the United States ... So far at last count, the UN reports that the military attack on Syria organized by Washington’s proxies has killed 70,000 people. But Americans are preoccupied with the Boston Marathon bombing, which killed 3 (HERE).

Alexander Dugin: "Will the Conflict in Syria Lead to World War III?"
Americans live in a matrix of lies. They seldom encounter a truthful statement.There is no evidence that Americans can any longer tell the difference between the truth and a lie. Americans fell for all of these lies and more: Saddam Hussein has weapons of mass destruction and al Qaeda connections. Saddam Hussein’s troops seized Kuwaiti babies from incubators and threw them on the floor. Gaddafi fed his troops Viagra to help them rape Libyan women. Iran has a nuclear weapons program. Change – yes we can! The US is “the indispensable country.” America is broke because of food stamps and Social Security, not because of wars, bankster bailouts, and a failing economy. Russia is America’s number one enemy. China is America’s number one enemy. Iran is a terrorist state. Jobs offshoring is free trade and good for the US economy. Israel is America’s most loyal ally. The US missile shield surrounding Russia is not directed at Russia. The South China sea is an area of US national interest. Financial markets are self-regulating. The list is endless. 

Lies dominate every policy discussion, every political decision. The most successful people in America are liars. The endless lies have created a culture of delusion. And this is why America is lost. The beliefs of many Americans, perhaps a majority, are comprised of lies. These beliefs have become emotional crutches, and Americans will fight to defend the lies that they believe. The inability of Americans to accept facts that are contrary to their beliefs is the reason the country is leaderless and will remain so. Unless scales fall from Americans’ eyes, Americans are doomed (HERE).

Potential for Strong Earthquakes – April 27-28, 2013

The gas giants Jupiter and Saturn have an effect on the Sun, and can influence sunspot activity. Certain planets making particular angles to each other and to the Sun and the Earth, can in turn put stress on the Earth's electromagnetic field, which can create tension beneath the Earth's crust that adds to seismic pressure. Taking the planet positions together with Sun and Moon factors, can increase the focus on where events may take place.

Geomagnetic Storm

2013/04/26 08:42:17 SANSA - Cape Town  
CURRENT CONDITIONS:  Solar activity is at moderate levels with C-class flare in progress. Several C-class flares have been detected. Background X-ray flux at upper B-class levels. Geomagnetic conditions are at unsettled levels due to coronal hole high speed stream. Local HF working frequencies are slightly elevated compared to monthly average predicted values. EVENTS: Several C-class flares from active region 1726. OUTLOOK: Active region 1726 has a complex magnetic configuration which may produce M- or X-class solar flares. Signal fading is expected for the next 24 hrs due to flaring activity from active region 1726. The high speed solar wind stream from a coronal hole could cause unsettled geomagnetic conditions for the next 2 days.  
Impact on Financial Markets: Unusually high levels of geomagnetic activity (= KP Index > 4) have a negative, statistically and economically significant effect on the following 5-7 calendar days’ returns for all US stock market indices (HERE & HERE & HERE & HERE).

How to Collapse the Precious Metal Market

Credits: Nick Laird. See also HERE
Paul Craig Roberts remarked: "People ask me how I know that the Fed is rigging the bullion price and seem surprised that anyone would think the Fed and its bullion bank agents would do such a thing, despite the public knowledge that the Fed is rigging the bond market and the banks with the Fed’s knowledge rigged the Libor rate. The answer is that the circumstantial evidence is powerful."  

JP Morgan and the rest of the Wall Street cabal were growing desperate as their physical supply of gold and silver had rapidly dissipated. They needed to cover-up their impending financial implosion with an engineered crash. Bill Downey explains in detail how they collapsed the precious metal market.

Tramp the Dirt Down

The Romans had a saying, “De mortuis nihil nisi bonum” - say nothing but good things about the dead. It is good advice, but in the face of certain enormous crimes against humanity, it cannot be honored. Such is the case of Margaret Thatcher. She offers one of the most egregious cases in recent history of a sociopath in power.

Margaret Thatcher was a new type of Tory leader, entirely lacking in anything resembling “noblesse oblige”. She was nasty, brutish and short of the class previously thought obligatory in Britain amongst leaders of the ruling elite. She was vulgar, money-worshipping, and blasphemous. She believed the important part of the Biblical story of the “Good Samaritan” was not that he refused to pass by the suffering on the other side of the road but that he had “loadsamoney”. In the infamous sermon on the Mound in Edinburgh addressing the Church of Scotland she opined that there was "no such thing as society … only individuals".

... Upon her election as prime minister (with just 40% of the vote, her position ensured by the treacherous defection from the Labour cause of the rats now squirming on the Liberal-Democrat ship) she set about “transforming” Britain allright. She privatised Britain’s key industries, enriching her friends, and robbing the public of their birthright. When she took over “Financial Services” represented 3% of the British economy; when she left office it was 40%. She destroyed the coal industry, the steel, car, bus and motor-cycle manufacturing, truck and bus-making, ship-building and print-industry, the railway workshops.

When Sir Mark Thatcher was arrested for helping to fund a plot
to overthrow President Teodoro Obiang of the oil-rich African
state of Equatorial Guinea, the spotlight was suddenly back on
the controversial multimillionaire son of the former prime minister
and his dubious business ventures. And the scandal revived an
even more enticing mystery: just how has Mark Thatcher
accumulated his large pot of gold? (
... She destroyed more than a third of Britain’s manufacturing capacity, significantly more than Hitler’s Luftwaffe ever achieved. She did this not just because she prefered the spivs and gamblers in the city -they were her kind of people. But because above all, she hated trades unionism, and was determined to destroy it.

... During the Falklands War, she sent hundreds of young Argentinian conscripts to a watery grave when she shot the Argentine warship the Belgrano in the back – as it was speeding away from the conflict. She mercilessly exploited the sacrifice of them, and our own soldiers sailors and airmen, to save her own political skin. A lot of brave men had to leave their guts on Goose Green to keep Thatcher in power. She pushed her alter ego – the semi-imbecilic US president Ronald Reagan – into Cold War fanaticism and burgeoning expenditure on more and more terrifying weapons – many of them stationed on our soil. She pushed his successor George Bush Sen into the first Iraq War. 

Throughout the 1980s, Thatcher's government backed Iraq during its war
against Iran, funneling weapons and equipment to Saddam Hussein in
contravention of both international law and British policy, all the way
up until Saddam's invasion of Kuwait.
I was there, I saw her lips move, when she described Nelson Mandela as a “common terrorist”. She continued to recognise the genocidal and deposed Pol Pot regime in Cambodia – insisting that Pol Pot was the real and recognised leader of the Cambodians, even as they counted his victims in millions. And she was the author of the policy of military, political, diplomatic and media support of the Afghan obscurantists who became the Taliban and Al Qaeda. She even produced them on the platform of the Tory Party conference, hailing them as “freedom-fighters”.

... I hated her more than I hated anyone – until the mass murderer Tony Blair came along. It would have been utter hypocrisy for me to have remained silent about her crimes today whilst the political class – including New Labour – poured honeyed words, lies actually, over her blood-spattered record. I could not do it. I believe I spoke for millions. The wicked witch is dead. Tramp the dirt down.

Gold at Most Oversold Levels on Record

Bespoke Investment Group LLC - April 15, 2013: The price of gold is currently trading more than 4.5 standard deviations below its 50-day moving average, which clocks in at the most oversold reading since at least 1975. The chart shows the daily overbought / oversold reading for gold based on the number of standard deviations it traded above or below its 50-day moving average.  As shown, there have not been very many occurrences where the commodity traded more than 3.5 standard deviations below its 50-day moving average. In fact, there have only been ten.

Michel Chossudovsky - April 16, 2013: The collapse of gold is due to naked short selling. It’s a trillion dollar operation. Once the price drops, the institutional speculators can repurchase paper gold in the spot market and cash in on a multibillion dollar bonanza. This type of operation can only be undertaken with the support and complicity of the Federal Reserve. It is a mechanism which results in the confiscation of people’s savings. It is an act of outright "financial theft".  

Paul Craig Roberts - April 16, 2013: Consider the 500 tons of paper gold sold on Friday.  Begin with the question, how many ounces is 500 tons?  There are 2,000 pounds to one ton.  500 tons equal 1,000,000 pounds.  There are 16 ounces to one pound, which comes to 16 million ounces of short sales on Friday. Who has 16 million ounces of gold? At the beginning gold price that day of about $1,550, that comes to $24,800,000,000. Who has that kind of money? What happens when 500 tons of gold sales are dumped on the market at one time or on one day?  Correct, it drives the price down. Investors who want to get out of large positions would spread sales out over time so as not to lower their sales proceeds. The sale took gold down by about $73 per ounce. That means the seller or sellers lost up to $1,168,000,000. Who can afford to lose that kind of money? Only a central bank that can print it.

Chart of the Day - April 17, 2013: After all, gold is now legal tender in both Utah and Arizona. The above chart illustrates how it currently takes 10.8 ounces of gold to 'buy the Dow' (i.e. the Dow / gold ratio) - a far cry from the 44.8 ounces it took back in 1999. Priced in gold, the Dow has been in a massive 13-year bear market. While the Dow (priced in gold) is well-off its dot-com record highs, it has been on a tear as of late. The current rally has resulted in a break above resistance of its latest downtrend channel as well as new post-financial crisis highs.

Euroland on the Brink of Secession

Arnulf Baring: "We're talking about a Europe that does not exist".
Portugal cannot rescue Greece, Spain cannot rescue Portugal, Italy
cannot rescue Spain, France cannot rescue Italy, but Germany could
rescue France.
In 1988 French President François Mitterrand and his advisers decided the best way to push Germany into cooperation was to play on its strategic vulnerability in the Cold War: Still having 45.000 occupation troops in West-Germany, they would parlay France’s nuclear force de frappe into a deal that would negate the powerful German Mark. Mitterrand sent Jacques Attali, his top adviser and high-level technocrat of the international banking cabal, to bargain with Bonn. When German officials raised the nuclear issue, Attali surprised them by asking to discuss Germany’s atomic bomb instead. "You know we don’t have the bomb", they protested. "I mean the D-Mark", Attali replied. Voilà.

The German Mark and the Bundesbank's independent policies were major tools that enabled and sustained post-war Germany's recovery, economic success and prosperity. Hence it took more than French nuclear 'defense guarantees' to get Chancellor Helmut Kohl (1982–98) to part with them. After much haggling, the French found more deal-sweeteners: The new European Central Bank (ECB) would be patterned on the Bundesbank, Kohl was assured. It would have the same rigorous monetary guidelines and the same overriding priority of fighting that old German bugaboo called inflation. And not only that, but the ECB could even be based in Frankfurt. Oh là là.

The much cheered Pax Europaea within a European superstate is deceptive
More than 300 active movements and parties in Europe are currently aiming for
separation, autonomy and secession (HERE)
But while the Soviets gradually collapsed under Gorbachev, the French clincher suddenly became their conditionalities for the German reunification in 1990. Kohl was bound and determined that it would happen on his watch. But he knew an enlarged Germany scared the rest of Europe. So to warm up the French financial oligarchy he gave away for free the Leunawerke and VEB Minol - that was the entire East German petro-chemical complex - to Elf Aquitaine (now TotalFinaElf - HERE). Then France and its allies like Italy and the Benelux countries let him know they would pose no obstacles to his 'reunification'-pet if only he would spring for
EMU and its concomitant, the Euro. With that carrot dangling before him, Kohl went ahead and also signed the controversial Maastricht Treaty on February 7, 1992. C'est ça: This was the end of the Bundesbank and the German Mark and the birth of the Euro-system. Arnulf Baring, a German lawyer and political scientist who worked for the Office of the German President, forecasted in 1997: "The Monetary Union will at the end turn out to be a gigantic extortion project … If we ask for German monetary discipline, other countries, who will be in financial difficulties, will blame us for this discipline and therefore make us accountable. Also even if the European nations first approve and sign up to this, they will perceive us as a sort of economic policeman. We will risk in this way becoming again the most hated nation in Europe."

Mrs Merkel more like Brüning or Hitler? However, in May 2012 the
crisis of the world finance oligarchy has started a new downward
lurch with the exhaustion of the € 1 trillion of 1% 3-year loans
wasted by ECB boss Draghi of Goldman Sachs on the hopelessly
insolvent Eurozombie banks. When Syriza, the Greek radical left
bloc led by Alexis Tsipras, challenged the Banksters, they went  

apoplectic about the prospect of a Greek debt moratorium.
Today the banks most exposed to the defaulting PIIGS are BNP Paribas, Société Générale and Crédit Agricole. And ever since they are in trouble all major ‘European' rescue-measures were designed and largely implemented by characters like Jean-Claude Trichet, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, Pierre Moscovici, Mario Draghi, Madame Lagarde and more of that ilk in order to offload 'French' toxic assets onto the taxpayers of the eurozone. Just recently Mr Baring concluded: "The crazy thing about the Euro currency is not only that we [the Germans] pay a very high price for it, but that it also ruined everything we have built in recent decades. Europe has long been our shield, our corral. That's all gone up in smoke. We now have to expect to get into a similar isolation like the German Reich in 1914: We are surrounded by many little and not benevolent countries that this time want but our money. 20 years ago the French paper Le Figaro wrote, the Maastricht Treaty was like "Versailles without war". If we do not defend ourselves, we will very likely be exploited down to the economic level of other Euro-countries. Then of course we would have certainly ruined Europe altogether." 

Now for the 'Cyprus rescue package' the German taxpayer is again the main contributor. But national elections are looming later this year, and there is much rage about this entire north-to-south wealth transfer by treacherous and dangerous fanatics like Wolfgang Schaeuble and Angela Merkel, both constantly violating the German constitution as well as the Lisbon Treaty in favor of Eurozombie banks and other cronies (HERE & HERE). Why should German taxpayers support a Cyprus banking system where depositors get a yearly interest of 5% compared to their own measly 1.5% (before tax) – lower than the yearly inflation rate? Worse, they hear how much dodgy money is deposited in Cyprus’ banks. They see this latest bail-out as propping up the money-laundering Russian oligarchsChrysostomos II, the Archbishop of Greek Cyprus, accused the Troika of the island’s woes and stated: "There will be no European Union in the future. Cyprus should exit before the union collapses." And Martin Armstrong exclaims: "These politicians are threatening to screw the entire world because they refuse to reform and admit this is the WORST attempt to create a currency in the history of civilization. IT CANNOT WORK!!!!!"

SPX vs George Bayer's Rule #4A - Mercury 80 Years Ago

We use the geocentric ephemeris, concentrate only on Mercury as it passes through the Zodiac. We mark each day when this planet enters a new sign 80 years ago, i.e. when it arrives at 0 degrees. We also mark those days in which Mercury turns retrograde or direct. Note, that a planet changing signs and going direct, respectively retrograde are two entirely different things, but for our work they fit together. Here is a list of these places together with the dates when they happened back in 1857. These dates are to be carried over to the year 1937, exactly 80 years further according to the Sun’s motion and not according to Mercury’s motion. All quotations are for Mercury only. In this example the years 1857 and 1858 were used.

1857 – equals 1937         1858 – equals 1938
3/31  0 Aries                 1/6 retrograde
5/20 retrograde            1/26 direct
6/17 direct                   2/13  0 Aquarius
7/23  0 Leo                   3/6-7  0 Pisces
10/10 direct                 3/23  0 Aries
11/22  0 Sagittarius      4/6  0 Taurus

Each and every one of these positions gave 80 years later  tops and bottoms not of a few points but of from 50 to 200 points in hides. Look up the dates on the hide charts. Note: The very same calendar days are used 80 years later.
