Hierarchy advancement to the higher positions of extreme power, privilege, wealth and status is based on participation in evil initiation rites based on deviant, perverted criminal acts such as satanic black masses, drug usage, pedophilia, child torture, child-hunting at private hunting lodges, child sacrifice, and human vivisection all secretly videoed for later blackmail purposes in the initiate ever goes outside their allowed behavioral parameters.
The question of how long the American masses are going to continue to allow several wrinkled up old Luciferian occult masters in wheel chairs to run their lives and destroy everything they ever worked for and America too, is now becoming a prominent issue.
The Revolt of the Debt Slaves Has Started ~ link ~
If we could just get consumers to borrow more so that they spend money they don’t have on things they don’t need in order to boost GDP and corporate profits, all would be fine. That’s the current meme among economists.
Since 68.5% of US GDP is related to personal consumption expenditures, boosting consumer spending is seen as crucial. Since wages at the lower 75% are crummy and have not been rising enough to keep up with inflation, the only other way to prod consumers into spending more is to bamboozle them into borrowing more and blowing this moolah instantly.
Cutting interest rates to zero was supposed to have helped that noble process (though consumers see those zero-rates inexplicably only on their savings and not on their debts). So that process of growing GDP by loading up consumers with debt, which worked for decades, has stalled:
Unnerved over the idea of a Trump presidency, wealthy members of the GOP inner circle are desperately looking for a new candidate for the job, and one name has come up again and again – retired United States Marine Corps General James Mattis. Mattis, Neocon pundits openly write, may be the ideal "dark horse candidate" to save their new world order.Over the last few months, James Mattis, a distinguished retired marine commander who last served as the head of US Central Command, has been repeatedly mentioned by neoconservative strategists and pundits as a possible antidote to Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and even Hillary Clinton.

Five Serious Earthquakes in 48 hours: Seismologist warns 'Catastrophic Mega Earthquakes' are coming ~ link ~
Why is the crust of the Earth shaking so violently all of a sudden? Over the past 48 hours, there have been five major earthquakes globally, and one prominent seismologist has declared that “catastrophic mega earthquakes” could be on the way. In fact, seismologist Roger Bilham of the University of Colorado has made headlines all over the world by warning that “current conditions might trigger at least four earthquakes greater than 8.0 in magnitude”. If his projections are accurate, our planet could be on the precipice of a wave of natural disasters unlike anything that any of us have ever experienced before.
Since the beginning of 2016, south Asia has been hit by an unusually high number of large earthquakes, and this has scientists groping for an explanation.
According to Volcano Discovery, 38 volcanoes around the globe are erupting right now. This is definitely an unusually high number.
In Matthew 24, Jesus warned us that there would be earthquakes in “divers places” just prior to His return. This is something that I discuss quite a bit in my new book. If we truly are in the times that the Bible refers to as “the last days”, we should expect the shaking of our planet to continue to intensify.
US Economy 2016: Signals Flashing Red ~ link ~
Those that were hoping for an “economic renaissance” in the United States got some more bad news this week. It turns out that the U.S. economy is in significantly worse shape than the experts were projecting. Retail sales unexpectedly declined in March, total business sales have fallen again, and the inventory to sales ratio has hit the highest level since the last financial crisis. When you add these three classic recession signals to the 19 troubling numbers about the U.S. economy that I wrote about last week, it paints a very disturbing picture. Virtually all of the signs that we would expect to pop up during the early chapters of a major economic crisis have now appeared, and yet most Americans still appear to be clueless about what is happening.
Even I was surprised when the government reported that retail sales had actually fallen in March. Consumer spending is a very large part of our economy, and so if consumer spending is slowing down already that certainly does not bode well for the rest of 2016.
A report issued Thursday by the British charity Oxfam found that the 50 largest US corporations are hiding $1.4 trillion in profits in overseas accounts to avoid US income taxes, much of it in tax havens like Bermuda and the Cayman Islands.
The biggest tax dodger is technology giant Apple, with $181 billion held offshore. General Electric had the second-largest stash, at $119 billion, enough to repay four times over the $28 billion GE received in federal guarantees during the 2008 Wall Street crash. Microsoft had $108 billion in overseas accounts, with companies like Exxon Mobil, Pfizer, IBM, Cisco Systems, Google, Merck, and Johnson & Johnson rounding out the top ten.
Panama Papers: New Zealand tax haven for world's elites ~ link ~
New Zealand’s National Party government is attempting to contain the damage from revelations in the Panama Papers that the country is a tax haven for the world’s super-rich. While denying New Zealand is involved in enabling tax avoidance, Prime Minister John Key announced on Monday the appointment of an “independent” expert to review the laws governing foreign trusts.
The inquiry will be designed to leave the current system essentially unchanged. The appointee, John Shewan, is a former head of PriceWaterhouse Coopers (NZ), known for his close links to the tax consultancy industry. In 2009, the Auckland High Court found Shewan had advised Westpac Bank on how to minimise taxes in order to pay a rate of only 6.5 percent instead of the standard corporate rate of 30 percent. At the time, Westpac owed nearly $NZ1 billion in taxes and interest.
Last Bubble Standing: China ~ link ~
In January we pointed out "the last bubble standing," as China's crashing equity market had spurred massive inflows - directed by a "well-meaning" central-planning committee's propaganda - sparking a massive bubble in Chinese corporate bond markets (in an effort to enable desperately weak balance-sheet firms to roll/refi their debt and keep the zombies alive). That has now ended as China's junk bond risk has soared to 5-month highs with its worst selloff since 2014. As HFT warns, "we should avoid junk bonds."
China’s high-yield bonds are in the midst of their worst two-month selloff since the end of 2014 and investors say they have yet to fully price in the risk of defaults as the economy slows. The gap reached a four-month high of 379 basis points, from as low as 352 on Jan. 19, as at least seven companies reneged on bond obligations this year, up from one in the same period of 2015.

Eric King: “As that unfolds, is that the beginning of the end (of the current global financial system)?”
Nomi Prins: “It is. It will be a transition to the destruction of this fabricated money framework. The only game in town has been fabricated money — this external supply of stimulation that is unprecedented in history.
