Census Report: Half of Americans Poor or Near Poor

http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article40036.htm

Forty-seven percent of Americans have incomes under twice the official poverty rate, making half of the country either poor or near-poor, according to figures released last week by the Census Bureau.
These figures are based on the Census Bureau’s Supplemental Poverty Measure (SPM), which takes into account government transfers and the regional cost-of-living in calculating the poverty rate. According to that calculation, there were 48.7 million people in poverty in the United States, three million higher than the official census figures released last month. The US poverty rate, according to the SPM, was 15.5 percent.

Patient in New York City Tests Positive for Ebola

BREAKING NEWSThursday, October 23, 2014 8:28 PM EDT
Patient in New York City Tests Positive for Ebola
A doctor in New York City who recently returned from treating Ebola patients in Guinea tested positive for the Ebola virus Thursday, becoming the city’s first diagnosed case.
The doctor, Craig Spencer, was rushed to Bellevue Hospital on Thursday and placed in isolation while health care workers spread out across the city to trace anyone he might have come into contact with in recent days. A further test will be conducted by the federal Centers for Disease Control to confirm the initial test.
While officials have said they expected isolated cases of the disease to arrive in New York eventually, and had been preparing for this moment for months, the first case highlighted the challenges surrounding containment of the virus, especially in a crowded metropolis.

Top Scientist Warns This Version Of Ebola Looks Like "A Very Different Bug"

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-10-20/top-scientist-warns-version-ebola-looks-very-different-bug

Barack Obama and the head of the CDC need to quit saying that we know exactly how Ebola spreads.  Because the truth is that there is much about this virus that we simply do not know.  For example, a top Ebola scientist that is working in the heart of the outbreak in Liberia says that this version of Ebola looks like it could be "a very different bug" from past versions.  Other leading scientists are echoing his concerns.  And yet Barack Obama and Thomas Frieden continue to publicly proclaim that we know precisely how this virus behaves.  Not only is that bad science, but it could also potentially result in the unnecessary deaths of a very large number of people.  For example, Obama has refused to implement an Ebola travel ban because he is greatly underestimating the seriousness of this virus.  This decision could turn out to be incredibly costly.  If what you will read about below is true, we could be dealing with some sort of "super Ebola" that nobody has ever seen before.

Obama May go down as Worst President in History

Bug-Stops-Here-DonkeyHotey
It is interesting to watch how the Democrats try to distance themselves from Obama. He may go down as the absolute worst president in history. One has to ask was this some sort of plot to make sure no black president will ever be elected again? Is Obama really in charge? Perhaps they just hand him a golf club like Hillary handed Clinton bimbos so she could run the joint.
Clinton-Big-Gov

I attended the National Press dinner in Washington where Clinton delivered the keynote speech. I was sitting at the table with the conservative TV journalists and his speech was so good, everyone had to really applaud – except the few very famous guys I was sitting with. I said to them – come on! That was a fantastic speech in how it was delivered. They conceded that, but still did not like the content.
Most people have no idea that Clinton was elected with less than 50% of the popular votes. Clinton was elected with just 43.01%. The only president to have been elected with a lower percentage was Abraham Lincoln during the election of 1860 (John Quincy Adams does not count being the first public election).
Hillary_Clinton_2016_president_bid_confirmed
The Democrats just want to be the first for everything – first to support slavery in the early 1800s, first to adopt Marxism in the late 1800s, first to confiscate gold creating two-tier monetary system, first to elect a Catholic, the first to elect a black president, and soon to be the first to elect a woman. Lot of firsts in there.
We will run our political models soon to see who wins 2016. This will be interesting for as the economy turns down from 2015.75, one year is a long-time for election. The Obama stench just may be so great, that rise in a third-party looks possible now.

Canada Shook By Assault inside Parliament

Parliament-Attack-10-22-2014
Canada’s capital was attacked on Wednesday by the fatal shooting of a soldier and an attack on the parliament building after a gunman managed to get inside. The gunman in the parliament building was shot dead. The question is WHY? It would be nice if someone investigated and revealed the truth. Was the man just nuts? Or was he disgruntled over some economic issue? There is a huge difference for taxes are rising in Canada and there is the issue of Quebec that should start to rise once again under a separatist movement when the ECM turns down.

The Dow October 22, 2014 & Bond Bubble

DJIND-D 10-22-2014

The resistance in the Dow Jones Industrial Index for today stands in the mid 16700 zone on a technical basis. Targets in time for this week were Wed and Friday with the latter being the main target. ONLY a closing back above 17010 would signal that the low is in place for a broader term. This week should produce a reaction high. A closing on Friday at least below 16880 will keep the market in check. A closing BELOW 16660 will signal that a drop back into the week of Nov 3rd is possible with a new low.
Retail participation remains at record lows so this crash we will call the Rich Man’s Panic of 2014. The same trend is witnessed everywhere, including Asia and Europe. While the press was bashing the little guy saying he has missed the entire rally,
The stats show that the total size of the world stock market capitalizations closed 2013 at $54.6 trillion which was only 25% of the total world market capitalization – the rest being bonds.The bond market is larger than the stock market for various reasons. Whereas only corporations issue stocks, governments and corporations both issue fixed income securities. The U.S. Treasury is the largest issuer of bonds worldwide. Because U.S, Treasury bonds provide the bulk of reserves which are just over $30 trillion.
UBLST-25
This is the real bond bubble. Capital is so accustomed to just hiding in bonds, it knows no other alternative. We can see that debt increased sharply in 1928. However, the collapse with the Sovereign Debt Crisis is what really made the Depression so Great. You can drop the stock market by 50% and you will not create a prolonged depression. Reduce the bond market by 33% and you get a depression.
Mellon-AndrewThis is why Andrew Mellon first boasted during the 1929 that conservatives were not hurt -“Gentlemen buy bonds.” However, soon the Crash of 1929 turned into a serious Depression and that comes NOTby taking stocks down, but by wiping out the bond market.
In 1987 we predicted the low, and the very day of the low we stated the low was in place and new highs would be made by 1989. Just as at the low on this move I stated the low should hold temporarily. The numbers always define the market –NOT my personal opinion.
In 2011 even Barron’s reported that I was again warning new highs would be made and again they unfolded with the turn in the ECM. Each and every turn, even 1985 and 1998 in the middle of the Long-Term Capital Management Crisis, that low was followed by new highs BECAUSE the bond market was intact. Undermine the bonds, and then we have a crisis. If you do not look at absolutely all markets and how they function, you will be wrong. You simply CANNOT forecast anything be it gold, stocks, bonds, or commodities, unless you look at the interconnections and for that – sorry you need centuries of data not just back to 1971.
The central banks trying to stimulate the economy with lower interest rates have set the stage for the greatest crash of all time. You cannot imagine the bloodbath if interest rates go back to just 8% where they began this Phase Transition in bonds. We will see the worse economic bubble burst all over the street and this will be the real “GREAT” event of all time.

Earth’s Magnetic field could FLIP in our Lifetime

Maya-Cover-2014


In the Maya Discovery of Time report I discussed the real strength of the Maya’s discovery of cycles. Of course there were the traditional people who grab everything and twist it into the next conspiracy theory that the world is coming to an end. What they obfuscate is the truth and the importance of the subject that they trivialize much as the gold bugs and money, or the environmentalists with global warming,.
Well now, scientists have come out at last admitting that the pole strength is weakening and the poles do flip. They have conceded there is a cycle and this is real not hype and gee - it is overdue. Amazing what you can discover when you just stop the bias and hype.


Entire Court in California Had to Step Down – All Judges

Just-us
The legal system in the United States is becoming so corrupt, this is exactly as Edward Gibbon wrote about the collapse of the rule of law in Rome.
Edward Gibbon wrote of him: Each
distinction of every kind soon became criminal. The possession of wealth stimulated the diligence of the informers; rigid virtue implied a tacit censure of the irregularities of Commodus; important services implied a dangerous superiority of merit; and the friendship of the father always insured the aversion of the son. Suspicion was equivalent to proof; trial to condemnation. The execution of a considerable senator was attended with the death of all who might lament or revenge his fate; and when Commodus had once tasted human blood, he became incapable of pity or remorse
(Book 1, Chapter 4).
The legal system in the United States now seriously needs reform for nobody’s property, human rights, or civil rights remain safe when judges are government appointees for life. New York is, of course, out of control where judges are free to simply alter transcripts changing the words of witnesses after the fact, In an important case, US v Ziccetello, the judge alterations unwittingly favored the defendant. The government intent on keeping its 99% conviction rate, argued that the judge changed the transcripts. On page 97 of the opinion, the Court of Appeals admitted it was a “unique” practice and then said it lacked the power to tell judges to obey the law since it is a 5 year felony to alter such court documents. If the Appeals Court lacks power, then who possesses such power.
Owen Richard

Judge Richard Owen is a real notorious pro-government former prosecutor playing the role of judge. He has handled most of the high-profile SEC cases. Amazingly, everyone seemed to get him.  He took the lawyers away from Steven H. Schiffer in a SEC case and then tormented him so he committed suicide all alone on. Then he would joke about it that he was never overruled because Schiffer didn’t know how to handle himself.
06-14-2000114MEMO-ENDORSEMENT on Emergency Ex Parte Application; Ex parte request for relief in Bankruptcy Court or, in the alternative, request for hearing on order to Show Cause before 6/8/00; this is filed as “on hold” due to Mr. Schiffer’s death on 6/9/00 ( signed by Judge Richard Owen) Copies mailed. (lam) (Entered: 06/21/2000)
QuattroneSorkinFrank Quatrone of First Boston found himself also before Judge Owen who was also changing the transcripts in his case. In fact, after I directly confronted Judge Owen publicly about changing my transcripts, no newspaper would report the confrontation. However, the New York Times journalist  Andrew Ross Sorkin who wrote Too Big to Fail, came to see me about Judge Owen changing transcripts. The Appeals court directly criticized Sorkin claiming he improperly reported events but still recuse Judge Owen. I spoke to Sorkin and he told me Owen changed the transcript after he reported. . Still the NY Times would not publish the truth about Judge Owen changing transcripts.
Owen Changing Transcripts

In my own case I forced Judge Owen to publicly admit he was changing my transcripts on September 23, 2003. Judge Owen had thrown the Associated Press out on April 27th, 2000 creating a closed secret court proceeding that is totally illegal. As an American citizen I was supposed to have a public trial – good one! The AP actually printed that it was a closed court proceeding.
AP-42700-r

The AP reported I had stated from the outset Republic stole the money. You cannot get $1 billion out of a bank and nobody knows where it is. That kind of money can only be wired, yet they pretended to be looking for something Republic had all the time. When Republic finally pleads guilty, they got no jail time in return for all the missing money.
Now, in California, some prosecutors have resigned because Eric Holder’s boys were fabricating evidence in order to confiscate property in the tens of millions of dollars. One former prosecutor Eric Overby stated: “It’s called the Department of Justice. It’s not called the Department of Revenue.” Overby has stated that in his entire career, “I’ve never seen anything like this. Never.” The entire court has had to step aside because all judges are tainted. Just amazing.
We are screwed as a nation without a legal system that is reliable. How can we have a ruling against the NSA or anything sensitive when judges are not really judges? You just cannot appoint career prosecutors as judges and no one should be there for life.

Too Big to Fail = Too Big to Exist

Big-Bank
Several banks who are friendly and not the wild trading types, reported to us before that the Federal Reserve officials were visiting them warning that they needed to change their models. Now the Fed is warning banks that they MUST do more to curb excessive risk-taking. They have also been warned about the bogus claims of“rogue” traders who amazingly lose billions and somehow management never knew. That claim is BOGUS, for anyone claiming that means that the bank should be shut down for it is incapable of risk management and should be barred from trading. So the Fed has again informed the banks that they have to now improve employee behavior at their firms or face stiff repercussions, including being broken into smaller pieces.
ECM Banking Proprietary Trading
The bankers have come in second to politicians as the most untrusted profession. Our model turned in 2013 and from then on the banks are losing control of government. This time around we WILL see banks broken apart. The Fed will cover only deposits. There is no political stomach for another $1 trillion check to bail them out next time. Besides, next time would be 3 times as great as the last bailout. This seems to be the growth path that they are on with a MINIMUM 300% increase from one bailout to the next. However, our models are pointing to a Phase Transition in this statistic. That means we may see more than a 500% increase in losses next time around.
