NaturalNews – Mike Adams – California’s Water Supply Headed For Collapse In Just One Year; State Has “No Contingency Plan” – NASA Scientist – 15 March 2015

NaturalNewss Logo-April-2014(NaturalNews) Add California’s water supply to your list of “things headed for imminent collapse.” The state has only one year of reserves remaining, warns Jay Famiglietti, the senior water scientist at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory at Caltech.

In a widely-cited LA Times opinion piece, Famiglietti writes that “…the state has only about one year of water supply left in its reservoirs, and our strategic backup supply, groundwater, is rapidly disappearing. California has no contingency plan for a persistent drought…”

But don’t worry: California has no plan for balancing its budget, either. Nor does it have a plan for how to pay for all the social entitlements it has promised its population of dependents. And finally, California has no real plan to fund its pension promises, either, which means that California state retirees not only face a future without water; they also face a future without a pension check.

Steve Lendman – Palestinians Suffer Horrifically Ahead Of Israeli Elections – 15 March 2015

StevelendmanWestern and Israeli media report ad nauseam on upcoming March 17 elections. Not a word about daily Palestinian pain and suffering.
Nothing about Israeli persecution, institutionalized racism, apartheid worse than South Africa’s, denial of virtually all rights imaginable, and Western leaders able to help supporting Israel’s worst crimes.
No explanation about whoever wins next Tuesday, Palestinians lose. No ruling coalition in Israeli history treated them equitably.
All Israeli governments consider them subhumans. Expect nothing different this time. Expect nothing improving their lives and futures.

The dollar’s advance accelerated since the end of ZeroHedgeFebruary.  The momentum has surprised everyone.  Pullbacks continue to be shallow. The move appears to have taken a life on of its own.  Consider last week, as the euro slumped more than 3%, sterling more than 2%, and the dollar-bloc more than 1%, US yields fell sharply.

The US 10-year yield fell 15 bp.  It has completed retraced the increase spurred by the strong jobs data on March 6.   The yield the December Fed funds futures contract fell 7 bp to 51.5 bp.  It settled at 49.5 bp the day before the employment report.

NaturalNews – Dr. Robert Rowen Reveals The Raw Truth About Vaccines At The Vaccine World Summit – 15 March 2015

NaturalNewss Logo-April-2014(NaturalNews) Vaccine “science” as it’s most typically presented to the public is a hollow house of cards propped up only by deception and lies. Ask any doctor out there to show you even just one all-cause morbidity and mortality study proving the safety and effectiveness of vaccines and you’ll never get to see it, because such a study is nonexistent.

Johns Hopkins University graduate Dr. Robert Rowen has been investigating the claims surrounding the “safety and effectiveness” of vaccines for many years, and his undeniable conclusion is that vaccines don’t work and they aren’t safe. The measures by which the modern medical profession claims that vaccines are safe and effective don’t hold water, he maintains, and are easily disproven. Continue reading

Steve Lendman – Hyping A Nonexistent Russian Threat – 15 March 2015

StevelendmanWestern fear-mongering persists. Russia is relentlessly bashed. Putin is irresponsibly considered public enemy number one.
Cold War 2.0 rages – heading dangerously toward becoming red-hot. Top US officials consistently lie.
One fabricated Russian invasion of Ukraine after another is hyped. In his January State of the Union address, Obama accused Russia of “aggression” in Ukraine despite none at any time during ongoing conflict
Earlier he said “Russian combat forces and tanks” invaded Ukraine “with Russian weapons and Russian tanks.”

ZeroHedgeThe bust of Aussie boom-towns, collapse of the mining industry, dramatic capital outflows, and a bursting housing bubble all have one thing in common, according to billionaire hedge fund manager Crispin Odey – “China is everything to Australia in lots of ways.” Simply put, he tells The Australian Financial Review, economies dependent on China for income, including Australia, are headed for recession and central banks will not be able to able to come to the rescue because they have exhausted the arsenal of policy weapons. “We’ve got a very old-fashioned recession which is spreading across the world,” and Australian banks face a tough time ahead too because there are indications bad debt risks are rising.

Mish/ Mike Shedlock – How Long Before Cash Is Banned? – 15 March 2015

MishMikeShedlockA regular reader who I trust 100% has been traveling in Italy for a month. She has this report on cash vs. credit cards.

Hi Mish

I’ve been in Italy for a month. It’s quite amazing how many places ask you to pay cash. Even at hotels, they would like you to pay your €1000+ bills in cash. And people ‘wonder’ why these countries always get into trouble.

CNACards Not Appreciated In essence, CNA just confirms two things we already know.

  1. Italy, Greece, and other club-med states want to crack down on rampant tax evasion.
  2. Businesses resist.

What’s the Real Problem? Is the problem really tax evasion, or is the problem that taxes are so freaking high on so many things, in so many ways, that everyone hides income every chance they can? There are already limits on cash transactions. I wonder … How long will it take for cash transactions to be banned entirely?
