In April of this year researches studying the H7N9 bird flu virus in China advised global governments to get prepared for the worst case scenario.
According to the World Health Organization, H7N9 is one the most lethal influenza strains ever identified because it mutates eight times faster than a normal flu virus, and according to official records, has a death-to-infection ratio of about 25%.
It was initially believed that the virus could only be transmitted to humans who have had direct contact with poultry. After 36 H7N9 deaths and 131 of infections officially reported since the virus was first identified, the worst case scenario that many feared may now be on the horizon.
Quantitative Easing, Central Bank Purchases and Corporate Buybacks Account for Much of the Rise In Stock Prices
by George, Washington’s Blog:
They’ve also skyrocketed because the Fed and other central banks are directly buying stocks.
NBC News reports on a third major reason that stocks took off … corporate buybacks:

You can see it clear as day in their hedging strategies…
Natural gas producers are increasingly bearish on prices for their sector.
The numbers tell the tale. Canadian gas producers surveyed for the Oil and Gas Investments Bulletin hedged AECO-sold production at $5.27 in 2011. Hedge prices have dropped steadily for gas sold since—to $4.27 in 2012, and to $3.29 for currently-hedged production in 2013.
Why the falling hedge price? Because it made sense – Natural gas prices fell steadily from the beginning of 2010 through to early 2012. Faced with two years of declines, producers looked to stave off further price risk by forward-selling (hedging) their output.
How prepared are you for the future (really)?

The next 20 years are going to look very different from the last 20. No doubt about it.

We have written several times about how major population groupings (ie cities) will collapse ‘shortly’ after the essential elements of life cease to smoothly flow in to them as needed. When there’s no water, no sewage, no food, no gas and no electricity, things will unavoidably get very nasty.
In an earlier post we suggested that cities will decay into violent anarchistic morasses within a week or two. In that article we were deliberately trying to look at a ‘best case scenario’ (don’t laugh – the collapse of cities taking a week or two is, alas, a best case scenario!). Our projection was based on the ‘best case’ hope that people would remain passive for a few days and it would only be when people realized no help was coming and they were starting to starve that things would turn truly nasty.

We would like to start with a question from one of our subscribers today, as we believe that it is a good way to show the distinction between tools that help you spot what direction the market is about to move and those that are better suited to time the exact reversal point, which is – in current circumstances – the final bottom in gold, silver and the whole precious metals sector.
Q: (…) One thing that I do is to look for price divergence with RSI and MACD and that is evident in the charts. Price has hit a lower low and RSI and MACD have hit a higher high/low. To me that indicates a possible good time to buy GDX, GDXJ and mining stocks. This is a volatile time so it would be difficult to hold through this period. (…) Also $BPGDM is at zero and can’t go any lower. (…)
Monsanto is a company feared and reviled by the public in equal measure. But whatever cases Monsanto has lost in the court of public opinion it has made up for in the courts of justice thanks to its revolving door with the upper reaches of Washington. Now, a new movement is seeking to galvanize grassroots resistance to the corporation, and derail its agenda.
Eric ‘The Traitor’ Holder has his fingerprints on the warrants issued for James Rosen of Fox News. It’s been hard to pin down Holder in his focused destruction of the fabric of America but this allows us to track back directly to him.
This is a must listen 30-minute world events update with Harley Schlanger, historian and national Spokesperson for LaRouchePAC. Harley gives us good news about the progress of reimplementing the 1933 Glass-Steagall Act in the United States, where 20 States have introduced legislation to tie the Banksters down and prevent further crimes against humanity. Harley tells us that as the criminality continues and deepens, there is a fracture among the criminals – a fallout among thieves. The system is crumbling, and it’s up to WE THE PEOPLE to save ourselves and take our system back. We also cover the Pentagon re-writing the Constitution, the false right-left paradigm which motors tyranny and the crimes of Barack Obama, a most impeachable President. Harley invites you to e-mail him if you want to discuss ways to take ACTION: Harleysch@gmail.com

They didn’t surprise. Media scoundrels support his worst policies. His neoliberal harshness is endorsed. His alliance with monied interests gets no coverage.
His crimes of war, against humanity and genocide go unmentioned.
His partnership with Israel against Palestine isn’t explained. His systematic disdain for rule of law principles gets ignored.
Responses to his Thursday speech were largely positive. Challenging them follows below.
New York Times editors headlined “The End of the Perpetual War,” saying:

While some, we are sure, will view this brief clip as partisan showmanship by Representative Steve Pearce, the questions he asks Treasury Secretary should surely be responded to in some manner that is anything but the typical perfunctory shrug these matters normally garner.
From Lew’s apparent disbelief that the IRS Audits debacle was in any way ‘political’ to Lew’s “waiting for the investigation’ on Jon Corzine’s misappropriation of funds, and finally to the “War on the Poor” that Pearce describes the current administration’s policies (for the benefit of Wall Street); these few minutes are well worth some time as we ‘remember’ this weekend.

Like so many debacles in the EU, it started with the unelected European Commission. It’s immune to voters, but not to lobbyists and corporations. Under the guise of “consumer protection” or “food safety” or some other harmless moniker, it generates zany laws that tend to benefit large corporations. But last week, it went too far, even for Europeans – not that they don’t already have enough crises on their hands. It passed a law that banned restaurants from serving olive oil in refillable containers, such as cruets or dipping bowls.
On January 1, 2014, their use would become illegal. Instead, olive oil would have to be served in a one-use-only bottle, labeled in accordance with EU standards, and equipped with a tamper-proof “hygienic” spout. A restaurant owner in Germany, for example, who buys his special olive oil from an artisan producer in Southern France, would be out of luck; that small producer wouldn’t be able to comply with the costly stipulations. The restaurant would have to switch to an industrial supplier that can ship the special restaurant bottles with their tamper-proof spout and EU label. The small producer would be cut out.
The global March Against Monsanto is hear. Nearly three hundred cities will host what’s sure to be hundreds of thousands of protesters and activists around the globe who are taking a stand against Monsanto and GMOs.

In a recent blog on the Greensboro, N.C. News-Record site, Doug Clark proclaims that “Maybe it’s time to send for President Andrew Jackson, who called the nullification movement of his day–also centered in South Carolina–treason.”
What on earth would prompt Mr. Clark to channel “Old Hickory”? Why, none other than South Carolina’s “right wingers,” who were celebrating the recent passage of a South Carolina house bill “that supposedly nullifies parts of the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare.” Mr. Clark also mentions that Michael Boldin of the Tenth Amendment Center, “crowed” his approval of the South Carolina push-back.
Bringing Jackson back may not help Clark’s argument–as it is–against the time-honored practice of nullification. Clark explains why Jackson is the go-to guy to put the S.C. nullifiers in their place when he references South Carolina’s revolt in 1832 against President Jackson and the federal government’s 1828 “tariff of abominations,” which not only raised the ire of South Carolina, but of other southern states as well.

If you ever wanted to be a hero and save the world, today is the day to do it.
You don’t need a cape, a pair of snazzy tights, or magnificent powers to be a superhero.
You just need to get out there and join your nearest March Against Monsanto, the bioterrorist company that is trying to take over the world’s food supply.
By uniting and standing together, whatever our political values, whatever our race or sexual orientation, whatever our differences, we can build a powerful momentum that can’t be stopped.
Yesterday, the US Congress betrayed America again by voting that individual states could not demand the labeling of GMOs.
Join a March Against Monsanto near you today!

MI5 asked Woolwich murder suspect Michael Adebolajo if he wanted to work for them about six months before the killing, a childhood friend has said.
Abu Nusaybah told BBC Newsnight his friend – one of two men arrested after Drummer Lee Rigby’s murder in south-east London on Wednesday – had rejected the approach from the security service.
The BBC could not obtain any confirmation from Whitehall sources.
Abu Nusaybah was arrested at the BBC after giving the interview.
The Met Police said a 31-year-old man had been arrested at 21:30 BST on Friday in relation to suspected terrorism offences and search warrants were being executed at two homes in east London.
