Gregory Mannarino: Greatest Theft in History Coming ~ Greg Hunter

On the Federal Reserve not raising interest rates in September, financial analyst/trader Gregory Mannarino says, “They should be embarrassed here. They could not raise the Federal Funds rate 25 basis points, or .25%. That was the biggest no confidence vote I have ever heard out of Janet Yellen’s mouth with regards to the U.S. economy and the global economy. I even said it the last time I was on your show. I said whatever the Fed was going to do was going to melt down this market, and that is exactly what happened. I said more than likely they could not raise rates unless they want to burst this bubble here, and we are already seeing it, and we are going to see it accelerate if the Federal Reserve raises rates sometime this year. Then what’s going to happen? Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, JPMorgan, Carl Icahn and myself are going to short this market. This is a set up and what I have been trying to warn people about. You got the mainstream media saying buy the dips. We’ve lost more than 2,000 points since the top, and they have been getting murdered all the way down. Why? This is the biggest scam in the history of the world. They are trying to keep the market liquid. The mainstream financial channels need to keep the little guy in this market so everyone can get themselves in the right position. So, when it tanks, the wealth transfer happens. All the cash the little guy has put into this market is syphoned off legally. This is going to be the greatest theft in the history of the world, and it has been purposely set up by the Federal Reserve. This crash will eclipse them all.”

The Doc from SD Bullion and Silver Doctors and our friend Eric Dubin from News Doctors join us to discuss the latest developments in the global precious metals markets where we see the Perth Mint selling 3.5 million of its one ounce Silver Kangaroo coins in one day. We also discuss the action in for PHYSICAL silver in India which has led Steve St. Angelo to conclude that demand for PHYSICAL silver worldwide will destroy the rigged paper markets once and for all. And once again we hit on the 1980 inflation adjusted all time high for silver which now sits at $601 per ounce. With silver priced at $15 per ounce today, it equates to less than $2/ounce silver in 1980 dollars. Something is very wrong with this picture. Got PHYSICAL?

Trans-Pacific Partnership Deal Struck As “Corporate Secrecy” Wins Again ~ ZeroHedge

Tyler Durden's picture

Once again the corporatocracy wins as the so-called “Trojan horse” Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement has been finalized. As WSJ reports, the U.S., Japan and 10 countries around the Pacific reached a historic accord Monday to lower trade barriers to goods and services and set commercial rules of the road for two-fifths of the global economy, officials said.

For the U.S., the TPP (reportedly) opens agricultural markets in Japan and Canada, tightens intellectual property rules to benefit drug and technology companies, and establishes a tightknit economic bloc to challenge China’s influence in the region (likely forcing their hand into separate trade agreements).

However, Obama is likely to face a tough fight to get the deal through Congress (especially in light of presidential candidates’ opposition).

The US, Japan and 10 other Pacific Rim economies have reached agreement to strike the largest trade pact seen anywhere in two decades, in what is a huge strategic and political win for US President Barack Obama and Japan’s Shinzo Abe.

As The Wall Street Journal reports,

The deal, if approved by Congress, will mark an effective expansion of the North American Free Trade Agreement launched two decades ago to include Japan, Australia, Chile, Peru and several southeast Asian nations.


The trade deal has been in the works since 2008 but has been stymied by politically sensitive disputes, including a fight between the U.S. and Japan over the automobile industry.


Beyond that, however, it represents the economic backbone of the Obama administration’s strategic “pivot” to Asia and a response to the rise of the US’s chief rival, China, and its growing regional and global influence. It is also a key component of the “third arrow” of economic reforms that Mr Abe has been pursuing in Japan since taking office in 2012.

Biotechs, among others, are the big winners…

In pharmaceuticals and other industries, U.S. officials sought a deal that would be acceptable to other countries and as many members of Congress as possible, without triggering the outright opposition of a major business group. Many Democratic lawmakers and groups backing generic drugs and less expensive medicine didn’t want any more than five years of exclusivity for biologic drugs, and it wasn’t immediately clear if the compromise in the TPP would satisfy their concerns.


One of the last disputes to be resolved pitted Australia against the U.S., which was seeking up to 12 years of protection for biologic drugs against generic imitators. The two countries reached a complicated compromise that provides at least five and potentially up to eight years of exclusivity for biologics. Chile, Peru and other countries remained concerned about adding to the price of drugs through long exclusivity periods, according to people following the talks.


In another last-minute deal, Canada and Japan agreed to increase access to their tightly controlled dairy markets, allowing some American dairy products in, but New Zealand also persuaded the U.S. to accept more of its milk products. The sour milk fight caught the attention of Congress, where Sen. Ron Wyden (D., Ore.) and Rep. Paul Ryan (R., Wis.), two lawmakers overseeing trade policy, demanded that dairy producers in their states gain more access to Canadian consumers, a sensitive concession for Canada during its own election season.


But critics remain vocal…

U.S. labor unions and their allies among consumer and environmental groups are among the biggest critics of the TPP. The left-wing opposition has prevented Mr. Obama from getting many fellow Democrats—already skeptical of the deal’s benefits to U.S. workers—to support his trade policy.


An array of Republican lawmakers object to provisions that would strengthen the influence of labor groups, impinge on the ability of tobacco companies to fight against packaging rules and other laws overseas, and possibly harm local industries, from dairy farmers to sugar.

So it isn’t over yet… (as The FT reports)

The deal announced on Monday by trade ministers from the 12 countries still must be signed formally by the countries’ leaders and ratified by their parliaments. In the US Mr Obama is likely to face a tough fight to get the deal through Congress next year, especially as presidential candidates like Republican frontrunner Donald Trump have argued against the TPP.


Only a handful of Democrats support Mr. Obama’s trade policy, and Republican support is unpredictable in the 2016 election year, depending on the stance of presidential candidates and new leadership in the House. As it is, the deal can’t go to a vote before Congress until early next year.


The odds of passage in Congress will hinge in large part on the final language in a number of provisions, ranging from the strengthening of rights for labor unions to whether U.S. cigarette companies will face special limitations within TPP countries.


“I will carefully scrutinize it to see whether my concerns about rushing into a deal before meeting all U.S. objectives are justified,” Sen. Orrin Hatch (R., Utah), chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, said in a statement Sunday before the deal was completed.


Critics around the world have also lambasted the deal for being negotiated in secret and being biased towards corporations, criticisms that are likely to be amplified when the national legislatures seek to ratify the TPP in the months to come.

*  *  *

Finally, as we detailed previously, the most troubling aspect of the TPP, asserts Ellen Brown, is the Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) provision, which “first appeared in a bilateral trade agreement in 1959.” Brown continues:

According to The Economist, ISDS gives foreign firms a special right to apply to a secretive tribunal of highly paid corporate lawyers for compensation whenever the government passes a law … that [negatively impacts] corporate profits — such things as discouraging smoking, protecting the environment or preventing nuclear catastrophe.

Imagine a scenario in which the U.S., coming to its senses about climate change, imposes a revenue-neutral carbon fee on fossil energy. According to provisions of the TPP, a fossil-fuel company in a signatory nation could then sue the U.S. for lost profits, real or imagined.

The threat is not idle. In 2012, the U.S.’s Occidental Petroleum received an ISDS settlement of $2.3 billion from the government of Ecuador because of that country’s apparently legal termination of an oil-concession contract. Currently, the Swedish nuclear-power utility Vattenfall is suing the German government for $4.7 billion in compensation, following Germany’s phase-out of nuclear plants in the wake of Japan’s Fukushima disaster.

The ISDS provisions of the TPP are insidious: the means by which signatory nations voluntarily surrender national sovereignty to the authority of corporate tribunals, without appeal, and apparently without exit provisions. No wonder the negotiations are secret.

Packaged as a gift to the American people that will renew industry and make us more competitive, the Trans-Pacific Partnership is a Trojan horse. It’s a coup by multinational corporations who want global subservience to their agenda. Buyer beware. Citizens beware.


Two thirds of EU states reject GMO crops, file cultivation opt-out requests

Nice find Keri! Reblogged from

© Vincent Kessler
Two thirds of EU states have requested to be allowed to ban the growing of genetically modified crops in their countries, choosing the “opt-out” clause of a European Commission rule that allows members to override EU-wide GMO approvals.

Nineteen European Union member states have requested opt-outs from the acculturation of genetically-modified crops for all or part of their territory, the European Commission announced.

The Commission rule, passed in March, allowed its 28-member states to abstain from growing GMO crops, even if the specific GMO strain had already been authorized to be grown within the union. Even though GMOs branded as safe by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) are allowed for use and cultivation in the EU, the states were given the October 3 deadline to decide on an “opt-out” option.

According to an emailed statement seen by Reuters, the Commission spokesman Enrico Brivio said that 19 countries have said no to Monsanto’s GM maize MON 810. So far it is the only GMO crop commercially cultivated in the EU which is grown in Spain and Portugal.

Belgium and the UK asked for the opt-out mechanism to be applied to only part of their territories, while Germany requested a partial opt-out, hoping to pursue more GMO research.

The full opt-out requests were made by Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Denmark, France, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Poland, and Slovenia.

READ MORE: No to GMO: Scotland to outlaw growing of GM crops

The opt-out states de facto are requesting that biotechnology companies exclude their territories from GMO seed sales. Brivio says that requests are being communicated to the companies, which have a month to reply.

The decision would affect major GMO producers, including Monsanto, DuPont Pioneer and Dow Chemical – all developers of herbicide-resistant maize – who have already submitted applications for the cultivation of genetically modified plants to the EC.

The potential use of GMO in Europe has been a widely-debated subject, with environmentalists claiming that it would damage biodiversity.

Ahead of the deadline, Greenpeace said that the growing EU-wide condemnation of GMO products lies in the distrust of EU assessments.

“They don’t trust EU safety assessments and are rightly taking action to protect their agriculture and food,” environmental activist group member Franziska Achterberg said.

Monsanto, whose Roundup herbicide packed with glyphosate was labeled by the World Health Organization’s as a “possible carcinogen,” has led a campaign against the environmentalists ahead of the deadline, claiming that the ban “contradicts and undermines the scientific consensus on the safety of MON810.”

Bix Weir-Implosion and Restart of Financial System Coming ~ Greg Hunter

Is inflation or deflation coming? Financial analyst Bix Weir says, “It’s not really inflation or deflation. It is a ceasing of the system. After the system crashes, no one is going to accept a Federal Reserve Note. So, I wouldn’t call it deflation. I would call it a restart. What they call it at the Fed is a ‘creative destruction event.’ Meaning, in order to move on to the next step, you have to destroy all the bad that has built up, and there is a lot of bad. We see the derivatives, and we say oh, that’s bad. There is so much more going on behind the scenes. We’re talking hundreds of trillions, if not quadrillions, of dollars in electronic assets that need to be wiped away, wiped clean completely. Otherwise, where all these assets are concentrated, they will have control over us, and that’s what we need to get rid of. We need to get rid of their control of us. . . . They seem to be making decisions completely off the wall, but truthfully, it is all leading to the same thing. Blow the bubble as big as possible so that it implodes. Then, you will see a fight to get control of the monetary system after the implosion.”

On war, Bix says, “The bad guys right now are trying to start World War III. That is the real dark side of how this thing might end. It will be China and Russia against us, and that is not a good thing.”

For the second time in a month, Congress has implemented ‘Martial Law’ as a way of fast tracking unconstitutional spending bills in order to keep the bankrupt US government from collapsing. The use of martial law fast-tracks spending bills by BYPASSING typical procedures – it’s a stop gap measure of overt tyranny from the government of a nation which at this point is best defined as a ‘Banana Republic’.

First Nation News: Surveyors conducting unauthorized work for Petronas escorted off Lelu Island

– WCNativeNews on September 29th, 2015 4:08 am
Five surveyors conducting unauthorized work for Petronas on Lelu Island were stopped and escorted offUnauthorized workers escorted off Flora Banks.

The Lax U’u’la Warriors are of all Nations, Tsimshian, Nisga’a, Haida, and non indigenous. After they hiked across Flora banks at low tide, and made it back to their skiffs, they interrupted the Stop Pacific NorthWest LNG - Petronas on Lelu IslandDrill boat who commenced drilling on Flora Banks at approximately 840am.

They threatened the Lax U’u’la Warriors with arrest and RCMP, but the Tsimshians have inherit rights to to stop all drilling activity on Flora Banks if they want their Rights and Title over Lax U’u’la & Flora banks to be successful in the courts.

5 surveyors conducting unauthorized work for Petronas on Lelu Island were stopped and escorted off from idle no more on Vimeo.

So far Tsimshian villages have been only releasing press releases over the area, but do not come out to support. Today Lax Kwalams Fisheries stepped in to document, record, GPS their location of the drillers. Which is what hereditary leader Yahaan has been asking for, their own boats out there to observe them.

“Our Traditional ways of life and the resources which have sustained our people are not to be pawns in the Christie Clark Government’s LNG dreams. Development within our Traditional territories must have our Free, Prior and Informed consent. The people of Lax’walams spoke very clearly in their rejection of the 1.25 billion dollar offer from Petronas, and this camp builds upon that rejection. This issue is not just a First Nations issue but one that will affect all British Columbians, especially those who rely upon healthy and abundant Fish stocks, of a variety of species at the mouth of the Skeena River.
– Lax Kw’alaams Hereditary Chief Yahaan (Donald Wesley) 

The end goal is to stop the drillers, and to save Flora banks.

*port Simpson band office and the Lax Uula camp are both separate entities, and the Mayor Gary Reece does not speak for the camp. The Lax Uula warriors are all working together to protect the salmon habitat. Prince Rupert has 3 proposed LNG facilities, all have the potential to collapse the salmon run up the Skeena and the Nass River.

How did we get to this point? 

Via –

What is the plan for the LNG plant?

A consortium led by Petronas is planning to build an $11 Billion dollar liquified natural gas (LNG) plant on our traditional Lax Kw’alaams territory Lax U’u’la (Lelu Island) at the mouth of the Skeena river near Prince Rupert, BC. The marine section consists of a 1.6 km bridge that would extend over part of Flora Bank, followed by a 1.3 km trestle with pilings alongside Flora Bank to a tanker berth, requiring hundreds of piles deep into soft sediment. A 48″ diameter submarine pipeline would be dredged into estuary sediment for 9.4 km toward the southwest corner of the island to supply fracked gas from Treaty 8 territory in NE BC.

Our fish are worth more than money.

The shallow eelgrass beds of Flora Bank directly southwest of Lax U’u’la are the most important juvenile fish habitat in the entire Skeena river system for salmon, steelhead, and numerous other species of seafood. Out-migrating smolts use Flora and Agnew Banks in the spring to undergo the physiological changes required to adjust from fresh to salt water, to feed, and to hide from predators. Upon leaving the river, smolts instinctively turn north and travel through Inverness Passage to Flora Bank, and then continue to Alaska. 88% of all migrating salmon from the Skeena river, or 330 Million every year, rely on Flora Bank. 10 Nations and 60 000 people in the Skeena watershed rely on these fish for food, commercial fishing, and cultural identity. Eelgrass is highly sensitive to light levels, and juvenile fish are incredibly sensitive to noise. The silt sediments that make up Flora and Agnew Banks are in a balance of constant erosion and deposition, and changes to the complex tidal and river flows that govern this process due to the proposed bridge supports, pilings, and pipeline dredging could sink or render Flora Bank dry.  Click here to learn more about Flora Banks and their importance to wild salmon.

We voted 100% NO to the project.

Without any warning, in early May 2015, Petronas offered Lax Kw’alaams $1.25 Billion dollars to allow them to build their plant on our Lax U’u’la territory. This offer took our small community by surprise. In three rounds of voting, our community voted 100% unanimously NO to this offer, as the risk to salmon in Flora Bank is not something that can be bought. We stated clearly that Flora Banks is off-limits to industrial development.

The government and industry ignored us.

After the vote, the BC government and Petronas have acted as if the vote did not happen. Without changing their plant design, Petronas gave their conditional Final Investment Decision on June 11, 2015 for the project, making it the first LNG project in BC to get to final investment. On July 13, 2015, BC passed the LNG Project Agreements Act to allow Petronas to build on Lax U’u’la, and also locking in an incredibly low corporate LNG tax rate (3.5%) for 25 years that is only collectable after full capital cost payback, a hefty tax break.

In lat August 2015, we heard rumours that Petronas would be conducting test drilling near Lax U’u’la and on Flora Bank.

At this point, we had enough.

So we are now occupying our territory Lax U’u’la.

On Aug.25, 2015, Sm’yooget Yahaan (Donald Wesley) and other Tsimshian members set up camp on Lax U’u’la. Despite clear direction from our nation to stay away from Flora Bank, contractor companies under the direction of the Prince Rupert Port Authority began test drilling near Lax U’u’la on Sept.11. They were turned away on multiple occasions over the following days, including when workers were caught walking on Flora Bank at low tide.

Multiple nations and many people, native and non-native, are getting behind us on this cause, including the Nine Allied Tribes of the Lax Kw’alaams, who announced Title litigation to Lax U’u’la on Sept. 16, 2015.

We are standing with Madii Lii campAt camp on Lax U'u'la with Gitxsan supporters.

We are also backed by the Gitxsan House group of Luutkudziiwus, who have been operating a camp on their traditional Madii Lii territory since Aug. 2014 to block construction of the proposed PRGT pipeline that would supply fracked gas to the PNW LNG plant. We are standing together with Madii Lii camp to stop the same project, and to save Skeena salmon. Click here to visit Madii Lii webpage.

We are also in support of the Unist’ot’en clan of the Wet’suwet’en who are protecting their traditional Yintah from proposed oil and gas projects.
We cannot trust Petronas.

Petronas is a Malaysian government-owned oil company that provides 45% of the national income of Malaysia, and is currently tied up in a financial scandal in their country. The president of the company, Najib Razak, who is also the Prime Minister of Malaysia, is accused of stealing $700 Million and covering up $11 Billion in debt. The company has a record of human rights abuses against indigenous people in Indonesia. On Sept. 10, 2015, a leaked safety audit from Petronas revealed that they had been operating offshore oilrigs in incredibly dangerous states of disrepair in the Indian Ocean up to 2013. Routine safety inspections were overdue by 20 years. Some equipment was deemed at risk of causing human death.

We cannot trust this company to build a safe LNG plant anywhere.

Congress quietly ends federal government’s ban on medical marijuana

Tucked deep inside the 1,603-page federal spending measure is a provision that effectively ends the federal government’s prohibition on medical marijuana and signals a major shift in drug policy.

The bill’s passage over the weekend marks the first time Congress has approved nationally significant legislation backed by legalization advocates. It brings almost to a close two decades of tension between the states and Washington over medical use of marijuana.

Under the provision, states where medical pot is legal would no longer need to worry about federal drug agents raiding retail operations. Agents would be prohibited from doing so.

NEWSLETTER: Get the day’s top headlines from Times Editor Davan Maharaj >>

The Obama administration has largely followed that rule since last year as a matter of policy. But the measure approved as part of the spending bill, which President Obama plans to sign this week, will codify it as a matter of law.

Pot advocates had lobbied Congress to embrace the administration’s policy, which they warned was vulnerable to revision under a less tolerant future administration.

More important, from the standpoint of activists, Congress’ action marked the emergence of a new alliance in marijuana politics: Republicans are taking a prominent role in backing states’ right to allow use of a drug the federal government still officially classifies as more dangerous than cocaine.

“This is a victory for so many,” said the measure’s coauthor, Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher of Costa Mesa. The measure’s approval, he said, represents “the first time in decades that the federal government has curtailed its oppressive prohibition of marijuana.”

Tens of Thousands Falun Gong Practioners in China Killed for Their Organs

In China, the wait for a vital organ is less than a month, and over 10,000 organs are transplanted per year. With no effective donation system, where do these organs come from?Many are harvested from prisoners of conscience, who are mostly Falun Gong practitioners.

“Transplant abuses of this magnitude are crimes against humanity. Remaining silent in the face of such atrocities is to be complicit in these crimes.”
—Dr. Arthur Caplan, Dr. Alejandro Centurion, and Dr. Jianchao Xu
Falun Gong

Falun Gong (a.k.a. Falun Dafa) is a spiritual practice rooted from ancient Chinese culture. It consists of meditative exercises and a moral philosophy centered on the tenets of truthfulness, compassion, and tolerance. It was made public in China in 1992, and freely practiced in over 80 countries around the world.

Plainclothes police beat Falun Gong practitioners in Tiananmen Square (AP)


During the 1990s in China, over 70 million people took up the practice of Falun Gong, which, at the time, was openly promoted by Chinese authorities. However, communist leaders came to fear that Falun Gong was ideological competition because of its independence, popularity, and traditional spiritual content.In July 1999, the Communist Party launched a campaign to eradicate Falun Gong through extensive propaganda, mass imprisonment, torture, and organ harvesting. The atrocities continue to this day.

Multiple independent investigations estimate that 40,000-65,000 Falun Gong practitioners have been killed to fuel China’s lucrative organ transplant industry.

Help save lives and put an end to this crime against humanity.

WE DO NOT CONSENT to further involvement of the Vatican in Black Magic or Satanic rituals, drug trafficking, laundering illegal drug trade money, pedophilia, drug wars, weapons smuggling, giving away our secrets, and colluding with “the enemy” by creating fake wars in other countries, suppressing cancer cures, repression, rape, murder, illegal businesses, mafia cartel card carrying membership, and the worst – mind control upon unsuspecting populations.

WE DO NOT CONSENT to mass consciousness suppression in any form and COMMAND ALL inter-dimensional interference CEASES in this NOW moment, and all future NOW moments. In all timelines and dimensions.


Much love and gratitude,

Editorial by Lance White, The ZanyMystic

“Francis has frequently railed against the “evil” of drug addiction and has met with addicts on several occasions.”

Oh YEAH? The Church has always been in the “Dark Ages”…look at the Inquisition, the Witch Burnings, the expansion of the Black Plague due to their abhorrence of the Roman baths, which they forbade… thus, creating people who were living germ factories. On THIS issue of “drugs”, it is documented fact that even if he’s not directly involved in the Global Drug Trade, his pals are!

The Royal Family has been running the poppy fields for hundreds of years; it’s one of their prime businesses. They are privately into all the drug trades, and their friends in the mafia, military, presidents, are all working together to bring us the very WORST of drugs: heroine, cocaine, and all the most addictive substances, while outwardly “condemning” them, AS IF they have clean hands.

Their bank(s) are STUFFED with mafia cartel funds, illegal drug trade money, and here in the good ol’ US of A, most are still stuck on DUM DUM who don’t know that the first President Bush, who was placed as head of the CIA, had all kinds of “illegal” businesses, including drug running to his oil platform off the coast, then there’s weapons smuggling, giving away our secrets, and colluding with “the enemy” by creating fake wars in other countries, to make more money and stir up the sh*t.

And the Pope is the centerpiece of all this “entertaining business machinery”, and when Ratzinger’s secretary was spilling the beans, they had to do a fast shuffle to be able to show a set of bank books that was not so, ahem…”dirty”. The horrific acts they have perpetrated on humanity since their inception is beyond belief. That we even listen to these self-appointed reptilian “gods”, who own everything and prescribe OUT morality while they do whatever they please, since they “make the laws” and are above them.

So don’t try to tell me, your holiness (in your own mind), what’s moral and what’s not. They KNOW that nature’s bounty, in the form of marijuana, expands consciousness, is documented as a CURE for CANCER, and the hemp is invaluable for clothing. But hemp would cut into the textiles monopoly, and a cure for cancer would reduce profits for their friends – the corporations which produce legal drugs, Big Phat Pharma! These figureheads are laughable and idiotic, and their removal is long overdue. The very idea that we NEED THEM to get to “God” is ludicrous to me.

I know there are millions of wonderful, enlightened Catholic members in the world, so please do not take this personally. What I do not agree to is the repression, the pedophilia, rape, murder, illegal businesses, mafia cartel card carrying membership, and the worst – mind control. Under the Vatican are caves and chambers, some used by the Jesuit and other Priests, to psychically chant/weave spells 24/7 so that there is never a moment when their mind control is not going into people’s heads, dreams and affecting the world. Isn’t it about time we take our Rose Colored Glasses off, and see these Managers of the Matrix of control and domination for who they really are?

YES – “THEY LIVE!” a lavish life draining the world dry, while dictating false morality and telling us what to do; including in bed: doggy style only, and no rubbers! A dog, cat or tree is closer to “God” than these imposters! Reptilian brained evil.

Massachusetts police department fed up with Big Pharma’s role in creating addiction through prescription painkillers


Ready for a positive police story? Where will it lead – you decide.

Yesterday, I reported at Natural Blaze that a Gloucester, Massachusetts police department fed up with Big Pharma posted the top 5 CEO salaries and emails online. Their Facebook status erupted with cheers in the comments and many shares. The department bemoaned the city’s drug problem and took aim at Big Pharma’s role in creating addiction through prescription opioid painkillers.

The Big Pharma salaries were as follows:

5. Eli Lilly – John Lechleiter $14.48 million 317-276-2000

4. Abbott Labs – Miles D. White $17.7 million 847-937-6100

3. Merck – Kenneth C. Frazier $25 million + cool private jet. 908-423-1000

2. Johnson & Johnson – Alex Gorsky $20.38 million 732-524-0400

1. Pfizer – Ian Read $23.3 million 212-573-2323

The department urged people to politely press the CEOs about their companies’ roles in the statistic that 80% of drug addiction starts with “gateway” legal painkillers. Indeed, the FDA just approved opiate use for children even though states where medical marijuana is legal have seen a 25% drop in painkiller deaths. And, a major review last year found that pharmaceutical painkillers cause more deaths than cocaine and heroin combined.

The department’s urging worked.

Someone from Pfizer called to meet with them and people following the page are awaiting the results.

Drawing more cheers, the Chief wrote:

This is not because of us, this is because of YOU.
Addiction is a disease.
No way we are arresting someone who comes in for help.
No way are we judging anyone.

Previously, Gloucester drew national attention with their Angel initiative that would help – not harm or imprison – people seeking help with addiction.


Ana Kasparian reports:

There is a growing body of evidence that proves criminalizing addicts does very little to combat drug addiction, and rehabilitation is much more effective than throwing a non-violent person in prison.

However, the best part about the department’s strategy is their clear understanding of why opiate addiction has become such an epidemic in the U.S. As I mentioned in an earlier piece, the uptick in heroin addictions is the direct consequence of pharmaceutical companies pushing painkillers like OxyContin for years, which are also known as opioids. In fact, prescription painkillers accounted for 16,000 deaths, or nearly four out of every ten fatal drug overdoses in America in 2012 alone.

Overall, heroin use has jumped 63% from 2002 to 2013, and the CDC makes clear that those who are addicted to prescription painkillers are 40% more likely to get addicted to heroin in the future.

Regardless of where the conversation with drug companies like Pfizer takes them and regardless of the results of their rehabilitation program – this bit of news has restored some faith and positivity among its supporters.

Comment: Health advocates target Big Pharma to combat opioid epidemic

Many in Gloucester said they would follow the police department’s lead in contacting the executives of the pharmaceutical companies. “The war on drugs should always have been against big Pharma,” said one commenter. “They are the real drug dealers but they line too many pockets with too much.”

Nigerian troops free hundreds of women, children and arrest local Boko Haram leader

An operation launched Tuesday by the Nigerian military in the villages of Jangurori and Bulatori rescued 241 women and children from two camps controlled by the Boko Haram terrorist group.

In the raids in the country’s restive northeast, Nigerian troops destroyed both camps located near the border with Cameroon. Forty three Islamist militants were arrested, including local leader Bulama Modu, who was acting as the “emir” of the village of Bulakuri, Nigerian newspaper Punch reported.

Army spokesman Col. Sani Usman said that the military rescued 241 women and children, but it is not yet clear how many of them had been kidnapped by the group.

Troops also confiscated weapons, including some that had been buried by militants abandoning their posts during the raid, Usman told the paper.

“Apart from arms and ammunitions, bows and arrows recovered from Bulama Modu, the kingpin, he confirmed that the terrorists also gave him a horse to enhance his deadly pursuits,” Usman said.

Nigerian troops have pushed closer to seizing those responsible for organizing a recent attack in northern Cameroon as a suspected militant, Aji Gambo, arrested in Wudla village, gave up names of those who helped stage the attack. The terrorists descended from Dara Jamel village, where the rebels operate a bomb factory, Usman said.

He added that the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General TY Buratai, commended the troops for their impressive performance.

“The troops who are on very high spirits have reiterated their determination to continue with the fight against Boko Haram terrorists till they clear them from all known camps and enclaves,” Usman said in a statement.

Boko Haram militants have repeatedly carried out deadly attacks on civilians and militia in Nigeria and other western and central African countries, including Niger, Benin and Chad, killing and injuring hundreds of people.

Aiming to impose a strict version of Sharia law across these territories, Boko Haram militants have stepped up their attacks on villages, bombing public gathering spots like crowded markets, churches and mosques.

The group has kidnapped at least 2,000 women and girls since the beginning of last year, according to Amnesty International. In one raid, heavily armed militants abducted more than 200 girls from a boarding school in the northeastern city of Chibok. The fate of those girls remains unknown.


Harley Schlanger, historian and national spokesman for LaRouchePAC joins us to discuss current geopolitical events including Putin’s gamesmanship in Syria where he has outmaneuvered Obama and exposed the fraud of the US “war on terror” by actually fighting ISIS, which the Pentagon and Obama does not want.

Incidentally, in March of 2014 while at the Hague in the Netherlands, President Obama warned the world that he is very concerned about the possibility of a nuclear weapon going off in Manhattan – a puzzling and frightening admission from a “leader of the free world”. Given that western governments are very keen on using false flag events to steer public policy and opinion, one wonders what Obama knows. Harley and I discuss.

We also cover the deteriorating global economy, and the fact that the American people had better wake up soon, because once the Dollar collapses under its mountain of debt and broken promises, Harley explains, “People aren’t going to have money soon. If we don’t change the policies we’re going to have a global blowout much much bigger than 2008, probably much bigger than 1929 to 1933 and people will lose everything”.

Syrian war spurs first withdrawal from doomsday Arctic seed vault

OSLO (Reuters) – Syria’s civil war has prompted the first withdrawal of crop seeds from a “doomsday” vault built in an Arctic mountainside to safeguard global food supplies, officials said on Monday.

The seeds, including samples of wheat, barley and grasses suited to dry regions, have been requested by researchers in the Middle East to replace a collection in the Syrian city of Aleppo that has been damaged by the war.

“Protecting the world’s biodiversity in this manner is precisely the purpose of the Svalbard Global Seed Vault,” said Brian Lainoff, spokesman for the Crop Trust which runs the underground store on a Norwegian island 1,300 km (800 miles) from the North Pole.

The vault, which opened on the Svalbard archipelago in 2008, is designed to protect crop seeds – such as beans, rice and wheat – against the worst cataclysms of nuclear war or disease.

It has more than 860,000 samples, from almost all nations. Even if the power were to fail, the vault would stay frozen and sealed for at least 200 years.

Grethe Evjen, an expert at the Norwegian Agriculture Ministry, said the seeds had been requested by the International Center for Agricultural Research in Dry Areas (ICARDA). ICARDA moved its headquarters to Beirut from Aleppo in 2012 because of the war.

The Mystery Of The “Missing Inflation” Solved, And Why The US Housing Crisis Is About To Get Much Worse ~ ZeroHedge

Tyler Durden's picture

Over the past few months (not to mention last 7 years), the topic of America’s “missing inflation” has gained major prominence, because while supposedly every other aspect of the economy is humming along (which really just means that record numbers of waiters, bartenders and temp workers are hired and collect minimum wage salaries), CPI remains so low it (together with China to a lesser extent) was used as justification by the Fed to not hike rates for 55th consecutive FOMC meeting, even though 75% of polled economists said, after 9 years of ZIRP, Fed lift off would take place last week.

One problem with the Fed’s measures of inflation, as we have documented in the past, is that they are wrong, if not with malicious intent, then purely due to definitional purposes. Recall our July comparison between CPI and PCE and our warning that “With The Spread Between CPI And PCE Blowing Out The Most Since 2009, Is The Fed Making A Big Mistake” in which we warned that “with a rate hike, as small as [25 bps] the Fed can and will almost certainly start a chain of events that results in the “ghost of 1937″ waking up. We don’t know if, like during the first Great Depression, it leads to a 50% plunge in stocks, but for those long risk here, it hardly makes sense to stick around and find out.”

The Fed did not hike.

But a bigger problem for the the Fed’s measures of how the overall economy is doing (and/or overheating) is that the Fed telling the vast majority of Americans that inflation is negligible, leads to riotous laughter.

The reason for this is a simple, if dramatic, one: the U.S. transformation from a homeownership society, to one of renters.

We hinted at the key features of this unprecedented conversion in June, when we wrote the following:

… by now everyone knows that the artificially suppressed, “hedonically-modified” and seasonally-adjusted inflationary readings is what has permitted the Fed to not only grow its balance sheet to $4.5 trillion but to keep rates at 0% for 8 years. Because “how will the economy recover if there is no broad inflation”, the Keynesian brains in the ivory tower scream, demanding more, more, more easing just to push inflation higher.


There is only one problem with this: it is all a lie – just ask any average American whose cost of living has soared in the past decade.


Still, with reality diverging so massively from the government’s official data, reality just had to be wrong somehow.


Turns out reality was right all along, as revealed by the latest “State of the Nation’s Housing” report released by the Center for Housing Studies at Harvard, which showed that while inflation among most products and services may indeed be roughly as the Fed and BLS represent it, when it comes to rent – that most fundamental of staple costs – things have never been worse.


According to the report, for American renters 2013 marked another year with a record-high number of cost burdened households – those paying more than 30 percent of income for housing. In the United States, 20.7 million renter households (49.0 percent) were cost burdened in 2013.


It gets worse: a whopping 11.2 million, or more than a quarter of all renter households, had “severe cost burdens, paying more than half of income for housing.” The median US renter household earned $32,700 in 2013 and spent $900 per month on housing costs. Renter housing costs are gross rents, which include contract rents and utilities.

At this point we should perhaps remind readers that according to the latest census data, the US homeownership rate tumbled to 63.4%, the lowest reading since the first quarter of 1967: the lowest in 48 years!


Peeking behind the headline number, an even uglier truth is revealed: the only reason the homeownership rate is as “high” as it is, is due to homeowners in the 65 and over age group. For everyone else, homewonership rates are now the lowest in history!

And with housing increasingly unaffordable for most, or mortgage lending standards so stringer the vast majority simply do no qualify, it means that record number of households are forced to chose less capital-burdensome rent as a form of shelter.

And since there is an unprecedented demand for rental units across the US (as the “owning” alternative has become inaccessible), the median asking rent not only soared at an annual rate of over 6%, it has never been higher, with the Census Department recently reporting that the Median US asking just hit an all time high $803.


What is odd is that according to the BLS, rent inflation is far less: at just 3% in the most recent print. One wonders what seasonal adjustments American renters should use to make their monthly paycheck smaller, the way the BLS perceives it.  Still, at 3.6% this is the highest annual rent inflation since 2008.


And herein lies the rub: because it is not so much what the real, honest inflation growth rate of rent is, it is what the offsetting income growth. Unfortunately, while the BLS can seasonally adjust rent payments to make them as low as a bunch of bureaucrats want, the bigger problem is that US household income is not only not keeping up with rent inflation, it is far below it. In fact, as reported last week, real income is now back at 1989 levels!


Which brings us to the latest, just released joint white paper by Harvard’s Center for Housing Studies in conjunction with the Enterprise Resource Center, in which we read that the US rental crisis is about to get far worse. In fact, in an optimistic scenario in which rental inflation rises by 3% annually (it is currently far higher at 3.6%), while annual income growth is rising at a speed 2.0% (it is currently far lower in real terms) the number of severely cost burdened households – those who spend over half of their income on rent – will rise by over 25% over the next decade, from 11.8 million to a record 14.8 million households!

Which means that is using at least somewhat realistic assumptions, the real number of households who spend more than half of their income on rent will likely be in the upper teens if not 20s of millions by 2025.

From the report:

if current trends where rent gains outpace incomes continue, we find that for each 0.25 percentage point gain in rents relative to incomes, the number of severely cost-burdened renters will increase by about 400,000. Under the worst-case scenario of real rent gains of 1 percentage point higher than real income gains per year over the decade, the number of severely cost-burdened renters would reach 14.8 million by 2025, an increase of 25 percent above today’s levels.

More depressing details about the state of the US housing rental market:

At the time of the decennial census in 2000, one in five renters were severely cost burdened, paying more than half of their gross income for rent and utilities (Figure 2). Meanwhile, another 18 percent faced moderate cost burdens, spending between 30 and 50 percent of their income on housing costs, exceeding the widely accepted standard that housing should not command more than 30 percent of a household budget.3 This represented a slight improvement over the shares burdened in 1990 as income gains outpaced growth in rents.

And here is the punchline: “in the years following 2000, gains in typical monthly rental costs exceeded the overall inflation rate, while median income among renters fell further and further behind (Figure 3). As a result, the share of renter households facing severe cost burdens grew dramatically, reaching a new record high of 28 percent in 2011 before edging down to 26.5 percent in 2013. Adding in those with moderate burdens, just under half of all renters were cost burdened in 2013. These rates are substantially higher than a decade ago and roughly twice what they were in 1960.”

Here the white paper confirms what, as a result of the above dynamics clear to everyone but the Fed, we already know.

At the same time that the share of renters facing cost burdens was rising, so too was the share of households opting to rent. Over the last decade, the share of renter households in the United States has increased significantly as homeownership rates have fallen from a high of 69.2 percent in the second quarter of 2004 to 63.4 percent in the second quarter of 2015, the lowest level since 1967. We are now seeing more renters than at any other time in U.S. history.

Furthermore, rent inflation isn’t going anywhere – in fact, it will only get worse: “as of 2013, the median rent of a newly constructed unit of $1,290 was equal to about half the median renter’s monthly household income, underscoring the urgent need for policy makers to consider enhanced levels of support for rental housing particularly for lowest income households but across a range of income levels.”

Even the pinnacle of status quo thought, Harvard itself, is now mocking the ‘recovery’ propaganda:

While reports on the state of the economy have become more optimistic in recent years, the number of renters with severe cost burdens is not expected to slow. Even if trends in incomes and rents turn more favorable, a variety of demographic forces will exert continued upward pressure on the number of rent-burdened households. Rapid growth of the minority population is one key factor, driven by past and predicted high levels of immigration. By 2050, the U.S. is expected to have a majority-minority population, meaning a greater share of the population will be non-white racial and ethnic minorities. The Hispanic population in particular is projected to continue its fast growth, reaching 106 million (or doubling) by 2050.


With that said, racial and ethnic minority households are disproportionately burdened by housing costs, regardless of tenure. According to the Center for Housing Policy’s Housing Landscape 2015, working households that are headed by non-white individuals have a significantly higher rate of severe housing cost burden than white-headed households. According to this analysis, one-quarter of both African-American and Hispanic households were severely housing-cost burdened in 2013, compared to less than 20 percent of white households.

Sorry Europe, the US has its own refugee, pardon immigrant, crisis and it is getting worse by the day.

Finally, tying it all together, here is the reason why the biggest US generation by number of participants – the Millennials, at 82 million strong – and the one generation that was supposed to be the dynamo that pushes the US out of its post-crisis funk is, simply said, crushed.

Millennials are also expected to continue experiencing rent burdens as they age. Having entered the labor market during and following the Great Recession, those in the millennial generation have received lower wages and experienced higher rates of unemployment and underemployment than their older counterparts at this point in their lives. As a result, millennials have less wealth accumulated, have delayed forming new households, and are less likely to become owners at the age that older generations had previously. In combination, we are likely to see additional household formation by millennials over the next decade and expect a relatively higher share to remain renters during that period.

Bottom line: far from confirming the “bullish thesis” that Millennials will eventually move out of their parents basement and buy (or rent) their own housing while starting new households, just the opposite is taking place:

In 2015, 15.1 percent of  25 to 34 year olds were living with their parents, a fourth straight annual increase, according to an analysis of new Census Bureau data by the Population Reference Bureau in Washington. The proportion is the highest since at least 1960, according to demographer Mark Mather, associate vice president with PRB. “The phenomenon of young adults, facing their own financial challenges, forced to squeeze in the homes of their parents. And new data show the trend is getting worse, not better.”

As Bloomberg redundantly adds, “It takes young people longer these days to find jobs with decent wages,” Mather said. “Young adults need to spend more time getting the necessary education and skills before they can become self-sufficient. The recession likely exacerbated this trend.”

The latest Census data show just 3.1 percent of Americans from 25 to 29 relocated in the last year between states, just half the share of 2002. While moves between counties in the same state — less likely to be for jobs — have increased some, they too remain below pre-recession levels, according to PRB’s analysis.

For some like Goldman, there is hope: “There is a silver lining to the trend. Presumably, all the adult children will one day leave their parents’ basements, and that household formation will prove to be a huge boost to a subpar housing recovery. There is already evidence this is occurring to some degree.”

Actually, no. And as the Harvard report suggests, Millennials are not only not leaving their “parents basements”, but even if they were, their financial situation would be even worse! At least for the time being, their parents cover the rental costs. Should tens of millions of millennials suddenly see their “disposable” income be crushed once the real world presents itself, that will be the end of the upswing in US consumer spending.

In conclusion, nowhere is the mystery of the “missing” inflation more obvious than in the following interactive map showing that in virtually all major seaboard metro areas, including the major cities in California, New York, and Florida, the number of households with a cost burden is 50% or higher.



All of this could have been avoided if only the Fed has observed the “missing” and soaring rental inflation that was right in front of its nose all the time, and which it did everything in its power to ignore just so the 1% can keep their ZIRP (and soon NIRP)and QE, and become even wealthier on the back of the middle class and the 80 million of 25-34 year old Americans who have found out the hard way that not only is the American Dream of owning a home officially dead, it has been replaced with the American nightmare of completely unffordable renting.


Soros, Icahn And Major New Players Rushing Into Gold: “Things Are In The Works As We Speak” ~ ZeroHedge

Tyler Durden's picture

Submitted by Mac Slavo via,

The price of gold and silver is set to explode according to one of the most well known CEO’s in the precious metals mining space.

Keith Neumeyer, the CEO of one of the world’s lowest-cost primary silver producers, says that the negative headlines surrounding history’s most trusted monetary instruments will soon give way and the smart money, including the likes of George Soros and Carl Icahn, is taking massive positions ahead of the breakout.

Neumeyer, who has created two billion-dollar companies and recently founded the mineral bank investment firm First Mining Finance, argues that the fundamentals are simply too great to ignore.

It’s really what you pay for stuff that creates value. If you’re buying stuff at the top of the market you’re destroying value. You never really know when the exact top of the market is and you never really know when the bottom of the market is. But, I know we’re around the bottom or are close to the bottom… But I don’t really care because I’m a long-term fundamental investor and I know that we can make a lot of money buying assets at these prices that we’re paying today.

I do believe that markets ultimately prevail. I do believe that supply and demand will ultimately prevail. I’m confident that we will see that occur…

The fact there are some very substantial new players coming into the sector and taking positions in gold and silver… I think that’s showing that things will change and I think things are in the works as we speak.

Neumeyer recently sent an open letter to the Commodity Futures Trading Commission slamming the rampant manipulation of precious metals paper markets, going so far as to call on global producers to withhold silver deliveries in an effort to bring balance to markets.

As he notes in his interview, that prices of silver are currently trading at around $15 per ounce is counter-intuitive given that demand today is significantly more than it was at the height of silver’s rise to nearly $50 in recent years. Moreover, the price at which mining companies are able to acquire precious metals assets in the ground has collapsed significantly from just a few years ago:

Generally speaking the average price that a mining company would pay for gold ounces that are drilled in the ground is about $50 an ounce. That number did go over $100 and there were some transactions that went through in the 2011 time frame that were much higher.

But I am just using generally speaking over the last thirty years… $50 is the normal one that we use as mining companies in the industry… so if we’re buying ounces today at $10 an ounce… and it’s actually lower that that… we’re paying $7 to $9 an ounce… that’s five times less than a normal market.

The silver market is extremely tight. Unfortunately you don’t see it in the price.

When silver was $45-$50 per ounce the demand was a little bit less than it is today. That’s a surprising statement. The demand today at $15 silver is greater than it was at that $45-$50 silver.

It goes to my earlier point about headline news and the hate on the mining sector, the hate on resources, the hate on metals… That’s what is causing prices to be where they are today.

I do believe that the street will wise up to that supply and demand fundamentals story and see that silver is actually a strategic metal.

The question, of course, is when? When will prices of silver and gold finally respond to widespread global demand?

While we can’t time the markets, if we take Neumeyer’s advice it doesn’t really matter. The long-term fundamentals are strong and the manipulation is clearly evident.

I think the supply/demand fundamentals for silver are the best of any metal. Of course gold is interesting because of the money printing that’s going on by governments. That’s why I am very much focused with First Mining on buying gold assets.

I think gold is going to start moving in the next six to eighteen months and I think gold will be driving the rest of the metals much higher.

I do believe that silver will outperform gold. The ratio currently is 75-to-1. I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see the ratio go down to 20-to-1.

…It’s not that inconceivable and that’s going to put silver in triple-digit categories.

The reality is that silver paper markets trade about one billion ounces daily. The entire yearly production of silver is about 800 million ounces. At some point that disconnect will be revealed for the sham it really is.

When that day comes we can expect gold and silver to rise precipitously as mainstream financial pundits look on with bewilderment.

The Corbett Report – Winning!


There are no shortage of doom and gloom stories to keep us preoccupied in this world run amok…but maybe that’s the point. We can become so focused on the negative that we forget to take time to acknowledge, celebrate and emulate positive stories and developments. In the spirit of The Corbett Report’s focus on solutions and empowerment, today James takes a look at some positive news stories and trends and invites viewers to contribute their own ideas.
