ZeroHedge – The Inevitable Failure Of Mechanistic Monetary Policy – 3 April 2015

ZeroHedgeSubmitted by Charles Hugh-Smith via OfTwoMinds blog,

Our current faith in central banks’ ability to “make the economy all better, all the time” is horrendously misplaced.

We are living in the Cargo Cult Era of Central Bankers. The era began in earnest on December 5, 1996, when Federal Reserve chairman Alan Greenspan cautiously wondered aloud if the stock market was exhibiting “irrational exuberance.”

NaturalNewss Logo-April-2014NaturalNews) After the disturbing death in 2013 of tens of thousands of bees in Wilsonville, Oregon believed to be linked to a class of insecticides called neonicotinoids, Portland, Oregon has decided — after a recent unanimous vote — to ban use of these toxic chemicals on city-owned property. The ban does not prevent people from using neonicotinoids on private property within the city.

ZeroHedge – It’s Starting To Fall Apart: German Bank Sues The ECB – 3 April 2015

ZeroHedgeWe probably haven’t seen the last of the troubles in the Eurozone. As the European Central Bank is trying to put out several fires with regards to Greece and its huge Quantitative Easing money-printing program, it’s important for the Eurozone to keep everybody on the same page. But as could be expected, some banks in the Eurozone aren’t really too keen on playing ball and have rejected the interference of the central bank.

With the recent military operations on the part of the Arab League against the Yemeni Houthi rebels, much has been made of the operation in the mainstream media outlets.

Mish/ Mike Shedlock – Huge Miss On Jobs: Establishment +126K Jobs; Household +34K Employment, Labor Force -96K – 3 April 2015

MishMikeShedlockInitial Reaction

For a huge change we see the existing pattern of a strong establishment survey but a poor household survey has been replaced by weakness all around.

Last month I stated “The household survey varies more widely, and the tendency is for one to catch up to the other, over time. The question, as always, is which way?”

It is still difficult to say if this is the start of a new trend, but it could be.

Last month the household survey showed a gain in employment of a meager 96,000 and much of that was teen employment. This month the household survey came in at an anemic 34,000.

The labor force declined in each of the last two months. Those “not in the labor force” rose by a whopping 631,000 in the last two months. Continue reading

Second Black Box Shows Co-Pilot Accelerated During Descent – 3 April 2015

RT logoThe data from the second black box has shown the co-pilot in the Germanwings plane sped up several times during the descent, according to the French air accidents investigative body.

The initial findings from the plane’s flight data recorder indicate 27-year-old Andreas Lubitz used the autopilot to direct the jet towards the ground.

“Several times during the descent, the pilot adjusted the automatic pilot so as to increase the speed of the plane as it descended,” the French air accidents investigation body BEA said in a statement.

Lubitz had “apparently used his tablet computer to search the internet for ways to commit suicide and for the safety features of cockpit doors,” according to German prosecutors.

Jon Rappoport – Common Core Education: The Insane Bottom Line – 3 April 2015

jon7“In a tightly controlled setting, subjecting a young child to cognitive dissonance amounts to mind control.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

For the sake of my argument here, I’m putting aside the fact that public education belongs under the purview of the states and not the federal government.

This article is about how the federal government decided Common Core would succeed.

I’m not going to recite brain-numbing examples of teaching basic math to very young children, under the Common Core system. Suffice it to say, I can add 9 and 6 and come up with the right answer. And I know why 9 and 6 equals 15. I don’t need Boolean algebra or set theory or a base-10 system to understand why addition works. Continue reading

Greece Preparing For Grexit, Own Currency – Media – 3 April 2015

RT logoAthens is currently trying to negotiate a new bailout deal with its Troika of creditors, but if that falls ‘Plan B’ could reportedly involve getting rid of the euro and cutting off its banking system from the European Central Bank.

Greece’s government is getting ready to nationalize the country’s banks and return to the the drachma, the Telegraph reported citing sources.

“We are a left-wing government. If we have to choose between a default to the IMF or a default to our own people, it is a no-brainer,” a senior official told The Daily Telegraph.

“We will shut down the banks and nationalise them, and then issue IOUs if we have to, and we all know what this means. What we will not do is become a protectorate of the EU,” according to another source.

Jon Rappoport – A Single Cartel For The Whole Planet – 3 April 2015

jon7A single cartel for the whole planet

Matrixology 101

“It’s not always possible to find out ‘who started a fire or blew up a building’, but you can count on the State using such an event to escalate its control over the citizenry. Deploying any excuse to expand its power is what big government does. It’s an obsession. The State has the DNA of a fungus. It spreads. That’s what it does. To put it another way, the State hopes that by committing more crimes, it can escape notice for having committed prior crimes. And yes, this is the same government untold numbers of people put their trust in for a better future.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

Let’s start here. In the wake of purported terrorist attacks, or crimes that appear to involve several nations, international cross-border cooperation is the watchword. Continue reading
