Russian Media Take Climate Cue From Skeptical Putin

From the article:

Wildfires crackled across Siberia this summer, turning skies ochre and sending up enough smoke from burning pines to blot out satellite views of the 400-mile-long Lake Baikal.

To many climate scientists, the worsening fires are a consequence of Siberia getting hotter, the carbon unleashed from its burning forests and tundra only adding to man-made fossil fuel emissions.

World Finance Leaders See Threats Ahead for Global Economy


From the article:

The world’s financial leaders see a number of threats facing a global economy still on an uneven road to recovery with U.S. and European officials worrying that Greece will default on its debt.

The finance ministers and central bank governors ended three days of meetings in Washington determined to work toward “a more robust, balanced and job-rich economy” while admitting there are risks in reaching that objective, the steering committee of the International Monetary Fund said in its communique Saturday.

EPA Tells Kids to Avoid Baths and Asks them to Check Toilets for Leaks


From the article:

Parents across America who struggle to keep their young rambunctious kids clean now have a new obstacle: the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

As part of its effort to help save the planet from the dangers of taking too many baths, the EPA’s WaterSense program is trying to convince kids they should avoid bathtubs in favor of showers, which it says is a far more efficient use of water.

Horse Hockey…The earth has rebounded quite well. The Rain forest contains enough trees to cover the entire country of Canada. Everybody except the MSM has figured out the lie of Global warming…The Phosphorus is being added by Chemtrails which is a misguided geo-engineering plan…It’s all fraud…Stop with the lies…

 Who decides the limits for sustaining life on a planet? Was that on one of the dead sea scrolls?

If you REALLY believe that, obviously, suicide is your only option.

Let’s see…getting rid of the hot air in Washington, DC and NYC (UN), along with their Gulfstream jets should put us right back in balance.

The sky is falling…again…and again…and again. How India and China handle a billion folks each is beyond these chicken little researchers. This is more of the same old ‘trying to create a microeconomy over environmental fear.

DragonSlayer7 

You see, most people have this idea that government and the people who own it are benevolent, quite the opposite, they use the lie of many things to great effect, to keep you afraid and compliant, to keep their power, and to keep you giving them your money. The have made trillions from lie after lie after lie.

Green Alarmism


From the article:

“Green Alarmism does not derive from science. It comes from a religion, the faux pagan worship of Gaia, the earth goddess. She is angry and must be propitiated by the sacrifice of human babies. The white liberals who are votaries of this religion have chosen brown and black babies to be the victims of the rituals of “population control”, “zero population growth” and “reproductive choice”.

Barack Obama Says That What America Really Needs Is Lots More Debt


From the article:

When it comes to taking a chainsaw to the future of America, nobody seems more eager than Barack Obama.  Despite the fact that the U.S. national debt is on pace to approximately double during his eight years in the White House, he has just proposed a budget that would take government spending to crazy new heights.

http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/barack-obama-says-america-really-needs-lots-debt

I usually put up several comments but I thought this one says it all:

Most Amerikans don’t care. They were more wrapped up in the Super Bowl. If any Amerikans did care, they cared about the wrong thing like trying to get more out of the treasury for themselves (applies to businesses and individuals). Our country is morally broke as well as financially broke. This will hit people hard.

The Real Unemployment Rate: In 20% Of American Families, Everyone Is Unemployed


From the article:

According to shocking new numbers that were just released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 20 percent of American families do not have a single person that is working.  So when someone tries to tell you that the unemployment rate in the United States is about 7 percent, you should just laugh.  One-fifth of the families in the entire country do not have a single member with a job.  That is absolutely astonishing.  How can a family survive if nobody is making any money?  Well, the answer to that question is actually quite easy.  There is a reason why government dependence has reached epidemic levels in the United States.

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-04-29/real-unemployment-rate-20-american-families-everyone-unemployed

Here’s a reminder for those who have forgotten: The unemployment rolls only count those who are being paid unemployment. Which is limited. Once you are off their rolls and you still haven’t found a job you are no longer counted. So, what the real number’s are is anyone’s guess.

The U.S. Debt Continues To Climb


From the article:

The U.S. debt has surpassed $18.0 trillion and continues to grow with no signs of remission. In fact, it has more than doubled in the past 10 years, growing at an annual rate of 8.82%. In 2018, just four years from now, it is expected to exceed $22.0 trillion. What consequences may lurk as a result of this debt burden? Let’s examine this now.

The Most Dishonest Year on Record


From the article:

Last week, according to our crackerjack mainstream media, NASA announced that 2014 was the hottest year, like, ever.

No, really. The New York Times began its report with: “Last year was the hottest in earth’s recorded history.”

The utter ridiculousness of the scientific community blows my  mind. 2/100’s of a degree. (I’m not even bringing up the degree of error). Really? OMGosh, we’re all gonna die. Yes, I’m being sarcastic. But I bet you knew that, lol.

Inhofe Calls Obama’s Climate Agenda A ‘Wealth Redistribution Scheme’


From the article:

Oklahoma Republican Sen. James Inhofe criticized President Barack Obama’s doubling down on fighting global warming Tuesday night, arguing that the president’s planned climate regulations were simply “a wealth redistribution scheme.”

More:

….. a recent NERA [consulting company] study predicts the president’s climate agenda would only reduce CO2 concentration by less than one-half of a percent; it would only reduce the average global temperature by less than 2/100th of a degree; and it would only reduce the rise of sea levels by 1/100th of an inch – or the thickness of three sheets of paper.”

I hate to say this but….I’m all for those who believe in this nonsense to knock themselves out. Not by passing on the cost to me, of course. But by passing the cost on to those who believe this. They can pay my portion. I will accept their honorable intentions. Seriously, I don’t mind at all.

10 Key Events That Preceded The Last Financial Crisis Are Happening Again

From the article:

If you do not believe that we are heading directly toward another major financial crisis, you need to read this article.  So many of the exact same patterns that preceded the great financial collapse of 2008 are happening again right before our very eyes.  History literally appears to be repeating, but most Americans seem absolutely oblivious to what is going on.  The mainstream media and our politicians are promising them that everything is going to be okay somehow, and that seems to be good enough for most people.  But the signs that another massive financial crisis is on the horizon are everywhere.  All you have to do is open up your eyes and look at them.

We are moving into a time of extreme danger for the global economy.  There has never been a time when I have been more concerned about a new year since I began The Economic Collapse Blog back in 2009.

Current Economic Collapse News Brief

– Episode 556


 As far as I know this report is accurate. Some of it may be opinion? Whatever the case….we should all be aware of what is going on in our world. So, as not be caught unaware.

I know some of these things are true. In Europe the banks were looted in Greece. While a supposed “bank holiday” was in effect and the banks were “closed” some still had access in other countries. That indeed did happen.

People’s savings were also looted (in Greece) when anyone who held more than a certain amount, I think the cutoff was 100,000 euros? the bank just took the money. Yes, they did. You can be sure, IMO of course, that there are those who are privy to such dealings and get their money out before these things happen.

And recently the banks who gamble with your money essentially will not be responsible if they lose. No kidding.


Matthew 6:19 – 21 KJV

19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:

20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:

21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

What Was The Gold Standard?


From the article:

My normally extensive Economics Glossary does not have an entry on the gold standard, so we’ll have to look elsewhere for a definition. An extensive essay on the gold standard on The Encyclopedia of Economics and Liberty

defines the gold standard as “a commitment by participating countries to fix the prices of their domestic currencies in terms of a specified amount of gold.
