Craig Bergman – We Need Peace Officers, Not Warriors

from Financial Survival Network

Craig Bergman is just off the successful release of his movie Unfair: Exposing The IRS. He’s got two more movies scheduled that promise to be even bigger. The first deals with the militarization of police forces across America. Once upon a time, your local Sheriff kept order and was merely a night watchman. Now, the police force is under the control of corrupt politicians and is getting more militarized by the day. Their job has become one of subduing the population. Craig’s movie will examine this trend and propose solutions to bring us back to the way things used to be.

Heather Wagenhals – Medical Identity Fraud Sweeping the Country

from Financial Survival Network

According to Heather Wagenhals medical identity fraud is sweeping the country. Obamacare also isn’t helping any. With electronic medical records, if someone else is using your health insurance, the results can be catastrophic, as demonstrated by the person who died as a result of a midagnosis due to incorrect records from a fraudulent user. It’s going to get much worse before it gets bet, so beware.

Jack Duffy – What’s Going On With The Sony North Korea Hack?

from Financial Survival Network

The Sony-North Korea hack is big news. The damages to Sony are near catastrophic. Movie production was halted and they were unable to make vendor payments. The movie that set it all off, The Interview will not be released in theaters either. Could this just be the beginning? So thinks terrorism expert Jack Duffy. He’s concerned that the country and American business aren’t ready for what’s ahead. He hopes that the Defense Department is gearing up, but one can’t be too sure. It all could be part of the new Cold War?

Gerald Celente: Threatening Western Freedoms With Trans-Pacific/Atlantic Treaties

by Anthony Wile
The Daily Bell

Introduction: Forecasting trends since 1980, Mr. Gerald Celente is publisher of the Trends Journal®, Founder/Director of the Trends Research Institute® and author of the highly acclaimed and best selling books, Trend Tracking and Trends 2000 (Warner Books). Using his unique perspectives on current events forming future trends, Gerald Celente developed the Globalnomic® methodology, which is used to identify, track, forecast and manage trends. His on-time trend forecasts, vibrant style, articulate delivery and vivid public presence makes him a favorite of major media. The Trends Research Institute has earned its reputation as “today’s most trusted name in trends” for accurate and timely predictions. On the geopolitical and economic fronts, Celente and The Trends Research Institute are credited with predicting the collapse of the Soviet Union, the last two economic recessions, the dot-com meltdown, the 1997 Asian currency crisis, the 1987 world stock market crash, increased terrorism against America, “Crusades 2000,” the quagmire in Iraq … before war began and much more. The Trends Journal is on YouTube here.

Daily Bell: Thanks for making time to talk with us today during this busy holiday season. Let’s talk about your Top Trends for 2015. You write of “bankism” and say it is fast becoming the dominant global economic system. What do you mean by that?

Gerald Celente: It’s very clear what it is, in that it’s not capitalism anymore. Capitalism means there’s no such thing as too big to fail, and the too big to fails are the banks. The banks are the ones running the show, not only in the United States but in a country near you. For example, we saw the Dow nosedive in the beginning of December and then it hit new highs by the end of the year. Why?

Hidden In This Little Ditty….

by Karl Denninger
Market-Ticker.org

Hoh hoh hoh….

Blackrock, like most asset managers, puts forward a year-end review and forward look. This one’s pretty decent, generally speaking. But you have to read these things for content, and remember that Blackrock is selling something — themselves, or more-specifically, their management services.

There’s a real problem in here and unfortunately Blackrock identifies the what and how but not the why:

Corporate earnings are a key risk. Analysts predict double digit growth in 2015, yet such high expectations will be tough to meet. Companies have picked the low-hanging fruit by slashing costs since the financial crisis. How do you generate 10% earnings-per-share growth when nominal GDP growth is just 4%?

David Stockman – This Will Trigger The Next Lehman Moment & Bank Bail-Ins

from King World News

With more people becoming increasingly fearful because of moves in the West to legalize bank bail-ins, today David Stockman spoke with King World News about what is going to trigger the next Lehman moment that will usher in the age of bail-ins.

Eric King: “David, what is the biggest danger facing the world?”

David Stockman: “The biggest danger is that we have a totally artificial, unstable monetary system. We’ve created massive amounts of credit that can’t be supported or repaid. All of this makes for instability.…

Belarus Imposes Price Controls as Ruble Falls

by Martin Armstrong
Armstrong Economics

The crisis in the Ruble is of course being portrayed as a Western plot to destroy Russia. The Council of Ministers of Belarus has issued a directive imposing an indefinite moratorium on raising consumer prices in the country. What is unfolding before our eyes is the end of Marxism – society is just too dumb to figure that out.

Decades of attempted state control behind and in front of the Iron Curtain are bringing the world economy to the brink of a serious crisis we warned would be BIG BANG starting 2015.75.

In the Year 2024

Daily Reckoning

[Editor’s Note from Jim Rickards: The following article describes a fictional dystopia in the spirit of Brave New World or 1984. It is not a firm forecast or prediction in the usual analytic sense. Instead, it’s intended to provide warning, and encourage readers to be alert to dangerous trends in society, some of which are already in place. Thank you.]

As I awoke this morning, Sunday, Oct. 13, 2024, from restless dreams, I found the insect-sized sensor implanted in my arm was already awake. We call it a “bug.” U.S. citizens have been required to have them since 2022 to access government health care.

The bug knew from its biometric monitoring of my brain wave frequencies and rapid eye movement that I would awake momentarily. It was already at work launching systems, including the coffee maker. I could smell the coffee brewing in the kitchen. The information screens on the inside of my panopticon goggles were already flashing before my eyes.

A Trip to Elephant Nature Park – Chiang Mai, Thailand

by Michael Krieger
Liberty Blitzkrieg

Elephant imagery is ubiquitous in Thailand. The animal takes on the form of the god Ganesh in Hinduism, and while Thailand is 95% Buddhist, Indian religious influence is clear. The sad irony of the situation is that the Asian elephant is in dire straights in Thailand. It is estimated that at the turn of the 20th Century, there were 100,000 elephants in Thailand. That number has plunged dramatically to an estimated 5,000 today. Of these, about 2,000 are in the wild and 3,000 in captivity as domestic elephants. A dismal situation became even worse following the Thai ban on logging in 1989, when many of the working domestic elephants were suddenly out of a job. With a fixed cost and an income stream suddenly threatened, elephant owners either abandoned their animals or brought them into big cities such as Bangkok where they would entertain tourists on the loud, crowded streets for change. These elephants didn’t eat enough, didn’t bathe enough, they walked on polluted city streets, and breathed congested air. It was a horrible existence for these majestic beasts that are meant to naturally roam the forests. This practice has since been banned, and fortunately, Thai cities are essentially elephant free today.

U.S. Supreme Court Rules 8-1 that Citizens Have No Protection Against Fourth Amendment Violations by Police Officers Ignorant of the Law

from The Rutherford Institute

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In a blow to the constitutional rights of citizens, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 8-1 in Heien v. State of North Carolina that police officers are permitted to violate American citizens’ Fourth Amendment rights if the violation results from a “reasonable” mistake about the law on the part of police. Acting contrary to the venerable principle that “ignorance of the law is no excuse,” the Court ruled that evidence obtained by police during a traffic stop that was not legally justified can be used to prosecute the person if police were reasonably mistaken that the person had violated the law. The Rutherford Institute had asked the U.S. Supreme Court to hold law enforcement officials accountable to knowing and abiding by the rule of law. Justice Sonia Sotomayor, the Court’s lone dissenter, warned that the court’s ruling “means further eroding the Fourth Amendment’s protection of civil liberties in a context where that protection has already been worn down.”

Russia Debt One Grade Above Junk With Downgrades Coming, How Likely is Default?

by Mike “Mish” Shedlock
MISH’S Global Economic Trend Analysis

All three rating agencies are expected to downgrade Russia’s debt to junk soon and bailouts to Russian banks are on the rise, but how likely is default?

The Financial Times reports …

Russia trebled the size of its bailout of troubled lender Trust Bank to Rbs99bn ($1.9bn) on Friday, laying bare the growing financial fallout from its currency crisis and the slump in the price of oil, its main export.

The rapidly rising cost makes the rescue of Trust bank, which foundered as the rouble collapsed early last week, the second-largest seen in Russia. It has now consumed a tenth of the money earmarked by the government last week for bank bailouts.

Origins Of Today’s Middle East Cauldron: Machinations Of British & French Imperialists During WWI

by David Stockman
David Stockman’s Contra Corner

The wall-to-wall coverage of the disintegration of Iraq ought to carry this credit: “This bloodshed was made possible by the generosity of British and French imperialists.”

The stomach-wrenching violence in Iraq — not to mention the horrendous civil war in Syria, the chronic unrest in Palestine/Israel, and problems elsewhere in the Middle East — are direct consequences of the imperialist acts of the British and French governments at the end of World War I, the history-altering catastrophe that began 100 years ago.

The story has been told many times. The government of Great Britain wanted to disrupt the Ottoman Empire’s ability to help Germany and the Austro-Hungarian Empire in the Great War.

North Korea Trolls Obama: Compares US President To “A Monkey In A Tropical Jungle”

from Zero Hedge

While it is certain that in a few weeks, not even America’s staunchest “patriots” will remember The Interview, one thing is certain: the trolling comedy that has been unleashed by North Korea in response to Obama’s own “proportional response” will live in infamy for a long time. Case in point, North Korea’s full official statement following the re-release of the The Interview, which hit select theaters on Christmas day, just as initially scheduled despite the endless drama, as well as countless streaming distribution services (which at a rental price of $5.99 promptly made it the most pirated movie of 2014, despite an epic marketing campaign that essentially made it unpatriotic for Americans not to see the movie).
