by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:
Does a mystery that is 3,500 years old hold the key to what is going to happen to global financial markets in 2015? Could it be possible that the timing of major financial crashes is not just a matter of coincidence? In previous articles on my website, I have discussed some of the major economic and financial cycle theories and their proponents. For example, in an article entitled “If Economic Cycle Theorists Are Correct, 2015 To 2020 Will Be Pure Hell For The United States“, I examined a number of economic cycle theories that seem to indicate that the second half of this decade is going to be a nightmare economically. But the cycle that I am going to discuss in this article is a lot more controversial than any of those. In his most recent book, Jonathan Cahn has demonstrated that almost all of the major financial crashes in U.S. history are very closely tied to a seven year pattern that we find in the Bible known as “the Shemitah”. Since that book was released, I have been asked about this repeatedly during radio appearances. So in this article I am going to attempt to explain what the Shemitah is, and what this Biblical pattern seems to indicate may happen in 2015. If you are an atheist, an agnostic, or are generally skeptical by nature, this article might prove quite challenging for you. I would ask that you withhold judgment until you have examined the evidence. When I first heard about these things, I had to go verify the facts for myself, because they are truly extraordinary.

Researcher, writer and talk show host Dave Hodges from The Common Sense Show.com joins me to talk about all of it – manufactured terror, World War 3, the elite’s plan to sell out humanity, depopulate the earth and use Transhumanism on those of us who are left here to be slaves. This is a must-listen conversation and we very much appreciate you tuning in and sharing it with those you love.

On this week’s Operation Freedom I based a segment on George Carlin’s stand up HBO special….” It’s a BIG club & we are not in it “. Carlin’s piece was recorded in 2005. He was light years ahead of his time. What he discussed in 2005 is playing out today with the New World Order Criminal International Banker takeover of Our country. Take a listen….

One of the lesser-discussed survival topics, even among preppers, is the eventual need to go out into what’s left of the world after the fan turns brown. Most preppers focus on making preparations to survive the onslaught of unforeseeable calamities that are more than likely heading our way in the near future. While none of us can say for sure what exactly will happen to bring on a survival situation, we are all pretty sure that something wicked this way comes. Even non-preppers can “feel” that something is wrong. It doesn’t take a rocket surgeon to figure out that the world has changed drastically in the last 15 years or so. The evidence is all around us. Strange weather patterns have emerged and are now the norm. The threat of terrorism, both real and contrived, is always lurking around the corner. The worlds’ financial markets are a mess of lies upon lies that will have to end at some point. Bubbles within bubbles comprise the whole of the stock markets, and financial collapse is a certainty that looms over us like a giant cloud. Racial and religious tensions, which are promoted by our so-called leaders, have escalated to a near boiling point. Talk of a third world war is now commonplace, as the United States or at least what used to be the United States, seems set on pushing Russia towards outright conflict, and let’s not even talk of all the stuff happening in space. The threats are at an all-time high.

I’m posting this amazing story with this question in my mind: “What do we REALLY know about humanity’s distant past?”.
I would suggest “virtually nothing that is accurate”. Hell … we can’t even get an accurate reading of recent history, such as, what a tyrant Honest Abe was, or even more recently, why that total sonuvabitch, Wilson, led us into WWI. What hope is there for truly knowing what transpired 6,000 years ago?
I recall reading a book about maps whereby the author stated that there are maps published 16th century which show Antarctica and Northern Greenland—lands no explorer of that time could have reached. The maps show an accurate coastline that is now under a mile of ice … a coastline verified as true only due to modern RADAR technology. These maps, in turn, are based on maps made by Alexander The Great, around 350BC.

I see that hand up in the back. Yes, the list does appear to tell us what interest rates the market is willing to take in order to hold money in a particular country’s currency for 10 years. It may or may not tell us about the creditworthiness of the country, but it does tell us something about the expectations that investors have about potential returns on other possible investments. The more astute among you will notice that French bonds have dropped from 2.38% exactly one year ago to today’s rather astonishing low of 0.54%. Likewise, Germany has seen its 10-year Bund rates drop from 1.66% to a shockingly low 0.36%. What does it mean that European interest rates simply fell out of bed this week? Has the opportunity set in Europe diminished? Are the French really that much better a credit risk than the United States is? If not, what is that number, 0.54%, telling us? What in the wide, wide world of fixed-income investing is going on?

At the World Economic Forum last week, German Chancellor Angela Merkel let the cat out of the bag with her sly offer, or rather bribe, to Russia. The German leader told delegates in Davos that European Union sanctions on Russia would be lifted in exchange for a “peace deal” in Ukraine. She promised a “free trade pact from Lisbon to Vladivostok”.
That’s a bit rich coming from the bankrupt EU, but nevertheless let’s accept the assumption that Frau Merkel is offering something very juicy. Why would she do that, and right at this time when civilians are being massacred in eastern Ukraine?

Washington’s attack on Russia has moved beyond the boundary of the absurd into the realm of insanity.
The New Chief of the US Broadcasting Board of Governors, Andrew Lack, has declared the Russian news service, RT, which broadcasts in multiple languages, to be a terrorist organization equivalent to Boko Haram and the Islamic State, and Standard and Poor’s just downgraded Russia’s credit rating to junk status.
Today RT International interviewed me about these insane developments.

from Western Journalism:
We once taught our children to admire Washington and Lincoln because they were honest men, men of integrity. A few years ago, people were surprised to learn that presidents Roosevelt and Kennedy cheated on their wives.
Anyone who went to Sunday school learned about King David cheating on his wife, then committing murder in the attempt to cover it up. Cheating and lying and being dishonest have been around since Adam and Eve took the first bite. We used to feel guilty about it. Fewer and fewer people appear capable of feeling guilt over wrongdoing.

It will cost the federal government – taxpayers, that is – $50,000 for every person who gets health insurance under the Obamacare law, the Congressional Budget Office revealed on Monday.
The number comes from figures buried in a 15-page section of the nonpartisan organization’s new ten-year budget outlook.
The best-case scenario described by the CBO would result in ‘between 24 million and 27 million’ fewer Americans being uninsured in 2025, compared to the year before the Affordable Care Act took effect.
Pulling that off will cost Uncle Sam about $1.35 trillion – or $50,000 per head.

from Wolf Street:
The year 2015 has just started, and already there have been two junk-bond casualties: the first on Thursday, and the second one today. They weren’t energy companies. Energy companies don’t even try anymore. They’ve been locked out. Both deals had to be scuttled because, even at the high yields they offered, there were suddenly no buyers. 2014 had been a harbinger: 17 junk-bond deals for $5.8 billion in total were shelved, most of them during the last four months.
Ever since the Fed unleashed its waves of QE, institutional investors, driven to near insanity by the relentless interest rate repression, have been chasing yields ever lower in a desperate effort to get some kind of return.

“If my thought-dreams could be seen, they’d put my head under a guillotine…” ~Bob Dylan
Well Bob, I’ve got news for you – they can – and that is what lies in store for all of us unless the ‘thought police’ fail to get their newly evolved ‘anti humanity’ mind scanning weapons legally integrated into everyday life.
As ‘the war on terror’ is notched-up to a further level of intensity, and the false-flag flagellations of New World Order exponents start outnumbering the real flag emblems of nation states, we know that we are witnessing a serious expansion of the control system’s morbid attempt to dominate humanity and completely crush the power of independent thought and action.

“We are now into the fourth year of a massive Obama administration cover-up”
Jerome Corsi, WND:
Documents obtained Monday through a federal court order show State Department officials disseminated the false story that the 2012 Benghazi attack that killed a U.S. ambassador was nothing more than the violent escalation of a demonstration by Muslims against an insulting video, even though they knew it was a coordinated military-style assault.
Among the documents obtained by the Washington-based government watchdog Judicial Watch was a memo sent the day after the Sept. 11, 2012, attack to the U.S. Embassy in Tunis, Tunisia, by the State Department’s Diplomatic Security Command Center titled “Emergency Message to U.S. Citizens: Demonstrations.”

It has not been an easy first day in office for Greece’s newly elected anti-austerity party Syriza.
Two Greeks and eight French were killed when a “Greek F16 fighter jet crashed at Albacete airbase in central Spain”. The jet was taking part in a training exercise in a “Tactical Leadership Programme of NATO”.
Syriza’s election represents a direct attack on Anglo-American and NATO aims for the world; as their anti-austerity policies reject the financial oligarchy’s IMF. A definitive analysis has been assembled detailing how Hollande’s recent change in rhetoric, refusing to demonize Putin in particular, could have posed a strong motive for the recent attack in Paris.
