Benjamin Fulford 2/18/19 Update: Bankrupt US government issues fake bonds in doomed attempt to keep afloat

The bankrupt U.S. government in Washington, D.C. was able to pretend it did not go bankrupt last week by issuing fake bonds, but these will be blocked, according to Pentagon, Asian secret society, and European royal sources.

In 2008, the Khazarian mafia puppet government in Washington, D.C. was able to avoid bankruptcy by using 700 tons of gold to forge 750,000 tons worth of gold-backed bonds and create $23 trillion out of thin air, confirmed by CIA, Pentagon, MI6, and other sources.  That money has now run out.

Now they are forging the identity of a murdered man, “Doctor” Zvonko Berdik-Albert (it is actually Count Albert) to try to do the same thing, this time using Chinese currency.  A copy of the forgery can be seen below.

The Khazarian mob also murdered former top European CIA man Neil Keenan and tried to forge his identity in a failed attempt to get their hands on Indonesian gold, according to CIA sources in Indonesia.

At the same time, the Khazarian mafia sent their fake Saudi Crown Prince to Pakistan last week with $20 billion in bribes in an attempt to buy security for their collapsing control of oil in the Middle East, Pentagon sources say.  However, the Pakistanis were not fooled by the satan-worshiping Khazarian puppet pretending to be a Muslim, according to Ismaili (historical Hashashin or assassin) sources.

The reason the clown prince went to Pakistan to seek protection was because the U.S. military is planning to withdraw from Saudi Arabia and let the Arabians once again choose a genuine Muslim as their leader, thus dooming many of the so-called Saudi royals, Pentagon sources say.

Meanwhile, multiple sources in the U.S. and Canada say Special Forces have been called into action in North America following the declaration of a national emergency last week by U.S. President Donald Trump.

Pentagon sources say that with emergency powers, “Trump can now direct military operations in cities to remove false flag threats, arrest cabal and foreign agents, close …

… overseas bases, get the Army Corps of Engineers to build a wall, order troops home, and bring military tribunals into the national conversation.”

Federal Emergency Management Agency Administrator Brock Long was fired and Attorney General William Barr was sworn in before Trump declared the national emergency, in order to make mass arrests possible and to prepare for FISA declassification and “intel dumps,” the Pentagon sources say.  Brock Long was behind the fake hurricane crisis that was used to cover up the bankruptcy of the Puerto Rico operations of the Washington, D.C. Corporation.

Many of the “intel dumps” will be about the politicians and power brokers who are receiving huge bribes from the illegal drug industry, CIA sources say.  Already, the drug lord El Chapo testified at his sentencing hearing that Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, and others received drug money from him.

Similarly, Pope Francis “was forced to make a historic move in defrocking sex predator ex-Cardinal of D.C. Ted McCarrick, paving the way for more cardinals and bishops to face the same punishment,” the sources say.  This was apparently the first time in the entire 2,000-year history of the Church that a cardinal has been defrocked, or “laicized.”  McCarrick was a top power broker in Washington, D.C. who protected many high-level political criminals, the sources say.  (Remember George Bush Jr. and Tony Blair going to see Pope “Maledict” to ask for protection after leaving power?)

The defrocking of McCarrick was related to the removal of top Vatican financier Cardinal Pell after he was found guilty last December of sexually abusing children, according to P2 freemason sources.  Pell had been blocking the start of the new financial system, they say.

This is also connected to the formal request by the British government, sent to the Vatican via diplomatic channels, to investigate the Vatican’s role in the March 11, 2011 Fukushima mass murder, British MI6 sources say.  The Fukushima criminal proceedings will start with charges being laid against Israeli security company Magna BSP and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the sources say.

However, the fascist and germ warfare-promoting Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan and his Iwasaki clan backers (Mitsubishi Group) will also face trial later in the proceedings, the sources say.  As a reminder, Abe’s government was installed through election fraud after the Fukushima disaster.  His government has been embezzling large sums of money that officially are being used for “cleaning up Fukushima,” according to Japanese right-wing sources.  In addition, Abe’s mother is acting as a liaison with Japanese gangsters for handing out Tokyo Olympic-related slush funds, according to a Yamaguchi gumi syndicate insider.

The fact that the Russian government does not want to make a peace deal with Abe’s regime is a clear sign that they understand it is an illegitimate, criminal government, say Russian FSB sources.

The firing of Michael Greenberg as top Vatican/Mossad agent in Japan and the imminent arrest of murderer, drug dealer, and Barbara Bush cousin Richard Armitage will pave the way for the clean-up in Japan, say White Dragon Society sources in Japan.

That’s why there is a huge fight going on behind the scenes as Japan prepares to install Crown Prince Naruhito as the new emperor on May 1st.  One group is pushing to have North Korea’s Kim Jong Un installed as emperor, since he represents a part of the royal bloodline that never surrendered to foreign control, Japanese imperial family sources say.  Another group claims that Naoshi Onodera of the Southern imperial bloodline should be emperor, because Naruhito is not of imperial blood.

The imperial succession is sure to be a topic of intense discussion when Kim Jong Un and Trump meet in Vietnam on February 27 and 28.  Pentagon sources say a public tribunal may be held to determine who the legitimate emperor should be.

There is also an upcoming case at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague that could upset the political foundations of the European Union, according to officials of France’s National Transition Council.  On February 19, the Council will submit a case to the ICJ claiming that “France has had no constitution since December 13th, 2007,” according to Council spokesperson Fabrice Dubourdieu.  In addition, the Council will show that three departments (administrative regions) of France have been run without legal right or title since 1948, he says.

“This legal mess could trigger not only the regime change in France, but also the collapse of the EU (as we know it) for all sorts of legal reasons which I can develop if you like,” Dubourdieu claims.  He adds that “We aren’t naïve;  we know we are under full-time surveillance.  The fact we are not prevented from acting means that higher people decided it was the right time to torch the EU 4th Reich legally.”

Meanwhile, the Khazarian mafia government of Israel, seeing that its 4th Reich Nazi backers are losing power, tried holding an emergency conference in Poland last week to drum up support for a war on Iran.  They were also there to try to extort money from Poland, Polish Intelligence Agency sources say.  The Polish government refused to hand over a penny and instead asked for the prosecution of European Council President Donald Tusk, the sources say.  Tusk is a German agent who only pretended to be Polish and was involved in the murder of top Polish government officials, including its president, in 2010, they add.

Another sign the Khazarians are losing control came as “Israeli dual-citizen Rupert Murdoch’s surrogate, former Fox News anchor Heather Nauert, withdrew her name for consideration as UN Ambassador,” Pentagon sources say.  The U.S. will soon have a UN ambassador who actually represents the U.S. and not Israel, Jewish CIA sources say.

There is a lot more going on that we cannot write about yet because it could jeopardize ongoing operations.  However, readers can rest assured that it involves really nice things for the people and living organisms of this planet.  The meek are finally going to get their inheritance.



A Brazilian Photographer Restored An Entire Forest With 2.7 million Trees In 20 Years

By Claire Robinson,

A Brazilian photojournalist was utterly stunned on his return home, to a town of the inland state of southeastern Brazil, Minas Gerais. What was once a paradise of tropical forests, filled with birds and wildlife, no longer existed. Can you imagine going away from your home town and on your return, you see all the trees have disappeared?

In the 1990s, Salgado’s parents gave the land to Sebastião and Lélia. Which they don’t own anymore. Today it is recognized as a nature preserve and a nonprofit organization which trains young ecologists and raises millions of tree seedling.

Salgado and his wife Lélia Deluiz Wanick Salgado, recruited partners and teams to collect funds, and in 1998, Salgado founded Instituto Terra. This institute was formed to recover 1,502 acres of rainforest in the Bulcão Farm in Aimorés, Minas Gerais. After the deforestation, the ranch was dubbed as a Private Natural Heritage Reserve. The Instituto Terra also created the Center for Environmental Education and Restoration (CERA), a place for research and education which focuses on environmental restoration

In December of 1999 Salgado planted his first seed. He clearly stated that the trees be native to the land so that the wildlife would return. Over two million seedlings of 290 species of trees were planted. The results were incredible!

Due to the replanting process, the eight natural springs that were hosted by the forest had started flowing and the fauna returned.

With close to 700 educational projects, 170 municipalities and 65,000 people who work in the Valley of the River Doce by December 2012. The River Doce covered both states of Minas Gerais & Espírito Santo, extending to the states of Rio de Janeiro & Bahia.

Salgado stated that climate change occurs due to carbon dioxide and planting trees would be the solution.

We as individuals need to make a change to our planet, plant a tree today!



“Father of the Sexual Revolution” Recruited Pedophiles from Prisons and Paid them to Molest their Own Children

All the “research” was financed, funded and paid for by the Rockefeller Foundation.

Alfred Kinsey has been described as a pioneer, a revolutionary, and a forward describes him as a journalist, biologist, anthropologist, scientist, academic, zoologist, and an educator. Other such publications refer to him as an entomologist, a sexologist, and many other esteemed professions.

As numerous as the titles given to this man were the attacks and accusations made against him. Why was this controversial figure both loved and loathed for his work?

Pedophilia Promoted as “Science

As we will learn today, Alfred Kinsey was involved in arguably one of the most notorious cases of organized pedophilia that has seen the light of day.

For decades, Kinsey recruited pedophiles from prisons and paid them to molest their own children and the children of others to perform so-called “science.” This was then compiled and sold in a book that went viral in the mainstream.

So why do Hollywood, university professors, and much of the political establishment lionize a man who aided and abetted pedophilia crimes? Why did Liam Neeson portray Kinsey in a positive light in the 2004 Hollywood film about his life?

Why is his work the foundation of university-level sex studies? Why are most of his statistical data still quoted by professionals today? Why are the horrific crimes of Kinsey virtually entirely left out of discussions any time his work is mentioned?

Kinsey’s Sex Research Took the Nation by Storm

Of principle interest to the public was his best-selling science book entitled “Sexual Behavior in the Human Male,” which sold half a million copies after its release in 1948. Not only did this book strike the curiosity of the American public, it took the world by storm and is credited as sparking the sexual liberation movement in the nation. Posthumously, Kinsey has been celebrated for over half a century as the father of sexual revolution.

Upon the day following his death from pneumonia on August 26, 1956, the New York Times ran an article describing the impact of Kinsey’s work.

“Dr. Kinsey became famous as the author of the first mass scientific survey of human sexual behavior. To this subject he applied the method of the Gallup Poll – principally personal, confidential interviews of a selected sampling of the population.

“His conclusions gave statistical evidence for what many clinicians–and indeed many laymen–had guessed might be the sexual conduct of the American people today. However, the bald statement in plain print of such deeply private matters titillated millions of readers of popular journals.”

The Rockefeller Foundation Financed Kinsey’s Research

The article goes on to outline the financial role that the Rockefeller Foundation played in funding Kinsey’s controversial research. This detail should not come as a surprise to my audience.

“In 1942, with Rockefeller Foundation funds and National Research Council sponsorship, he set up his Institute for Sex Research, Inc., and Dr. Kinsey and his aides began their statistical study of sex conduct of men and women in the United States.

“The fourteen researchers interviewed 5,300 white men and boys and 5,940 women and girls, each interview encompassing up to 300 extremely personal questions. The interviewers even examined the sex life of babies as young as 2 years, asking the questions of their mothers.”

The Detriment of Kinsey’s Work

In his article entitled How Alfred C. Kinsey’s Sex Studies Have Harmed Women and Children, Robert H. Knight wrote,

“With his benign view of child sexual abuse, Kinsey became an activist on behalf of child molesters. In 1949, for example, he testified before the California General Assembly’s Subcommittee on Sex Crimes, urging them to liberalize sex offense statutes. He argued specifically for granting immediate paroles to suspected child molesters, and warned that societal “hysteria” does more harm to children than the actual molestations.

“Kinsey wrote: “It is difficult to understand why a child, except for its cultural conditioning, should be disturbed at having its genitalia touched, or disturbed at seeing the genitalia of other persons, or disturbed at even more specific sexual contacts.

“Alfred C. Kinsey’s studies have had a profoundly negative impact on American women and children, weakening legal protection from sexual abuse and falsely portraying “sexual liberation” as an unalloyed good, despite astronomic increases in divorce, abortion, sexually transmitted diseases and physical abuse of women and children.”

Kinsey meticulously cataloged every imaginable dimension of analysis with regard to what he called “the sexuality of children.” This included the average age at which children can first orgasm, the duration of time until orgasm is reached, the duration of orgasm, the sexual predilections of infants, and so on.

In her book “Kinsey: Crimes and Consequences,” Dr. Judith Reisman summarizes the amount Kinsey’s young male victims.

“The number of male infants and young boys observed undergoing sexual stimulation, as reported in the Male volume, is between 317 and 1,739 (seven girls were similarly tested). The child-subject totals may be calculated several ways, depending on the manner in which chart figures are tallied.”

Others have estimated the total number of male and female victims is closer to 2,035.

Systemic Abuse of Minors

Dr. Judith Reisman goes on describe some of Kinsey’s “techniques” used in studying pre-adolescent sexuality.

“Kinsey believed that human beings and their responses could be categorized like the gall wasps he had collected earlier. This taxonomic technique is evident in Table 31 of the Male volume, “Pre-adolescent experience in orgasm,” which is a carbon copy in theory, structure, and groupings of his 1936 insect table on “Cynips.”

“In Table 31, Kinsey reported the little boys’ ages and “orgasm” responses to stimuli. Bancroft claims that Kinsey’s “meticulous” boy tables report the “data” Kinsey received from King, who he called an old “technically trained” forester and who, Pomeroy and others claim, had sexual relations with 800 children of both sexes).

“Kinsey stated that “some of the younger boys who have contributed to the present study” also described their “orgasm.” However, the charts show that 28 of Kinsey’s “younger boy” contributors/ participants were infants, so unable to speak.

“Kinsey claimed in Table 31 that “orgasm” was “observed” in a male infant of five months, although the table further notes failure to produce orgasms in male babies of two, three, four and nine months.

“Each age category included children tested for orgasm; that is, Kinsey confirmed 22 toddlers up to two years old, were test subjects. He claimed that 11 of these tykes “reached climax,” while 11 others did not. These could have been some of Rex King’s little victims, described by Gathorne-Hardy in his Yorkshire interview.

“Such is the view of those collecting sex “data” on 317 boys in Table 31, men engaged in “actual observation” of the children. Some of the little boys were tracked for years. Kinsey writes, “In 5 cases of young pre-adolescents, observations were continued over periods of months or years, until the individuals [child subjects] were old enough to make it certain that true orgasm was involved.”

“In other words, at least five little boys continued to be subjected to experimentation “over periods of months or years” so that scientists and/ or technically trained observers could know if what these men called “true orgasm was involved.”

The Agenda to Normalize Pedophilia

On page five of Behavior Today published on Dec. 5, 1988, the author asserts,

“Pedophilia… may be a sexual orientation rather than a sexual deviation.” In fact, the University of Massachusetts-Amherst already defines pedophiles as a “protected minority” within its nondiscrimination code, according to Hillsdale College President George Roche.”

According to Dr. Joan Nelson, cited in Dr. Reisman’s book,

“Pedophiles are visionaries who “participate in sexual contact not for her or his own gratification, but in response to a child’s attempt to acquire practical knowledge.”

“Such visionaries are advocates of “children’s rights” in all areas, and “believe the troubles that characterize our times are rooted in childhood sexual repression that prohibits age-free expression of sexual affection.” Dr. Nelson is the founder of the Institute for the Study of Sexual Behavior. She describes her childhood submission to incest as “the happiest period of my life.”

On page 115, the Kinsey team touts the benefits of sexual contact (incestuous or otherwise) with children.

“Some of the pre-adolescent contacts had provided emotional satisfactions which had conditioned the female for the acceptance of later sexual activities.”

“Kinsey’s Pedophiles” – A Documentary Featuring Pedophile Sympathizers

The now-infamous Yorkshire documentary, entitled Secret History: Kinsey’s Paedophiles, which premiered on August 10, 1998, above all else shines light on the mindset of former and current employees of the Kinsey Institute and their shameless intentions to normalize pedophilia.

Throughout my presentations on systemic pedophilia, I have built a strong case that there are child trafficking rings that operate more or less in the open. I present evidence that the Pedophile Agenda is hell-bent on publicly sexualizing children and normalizing their sexual crimes.

This documentary is a smoking gun that showcases the sick perverts that actually promulgate this sort of message from their academic ivory towers and conveniently evade prosecution.

Dr. Judith Reisman had this to say about the Yorkshire documentary.

“Kinsey’s Pedophiles, was broadcast in Great Britain on August 10, 1998. In a review, England’s BBC Radio Times wrote that “this deeply unsettling documentary… makes a strong case that Kinsey cultivated [pedophiles whose crimes] he presented as scientific data.”

“London’s Daily Mail for August 11, 1998, agreed: “An academic study admitted the… repugnant… evidence of a child abuser as though this were a respectable scientific contribution.” In the Yorkshire interview, Gebhard confirmed that “certain of our subjects,” who joined Kinsey’s child sexuality research team, were child molesters.”

The pernicious influence of Kinsey and his body of work is vast and today’s discussion has only scratched the surface. Indeed, entire volumes have been written about his crimes and their influence on culture and academia.

Kinsey’s research laid the groundwork for those in the psychiatric community to insist that pedophilia is normal and common, as I have reported on in my other presentations [123].

For now, I leave you with Kinsey’s Paedophiles, if you can bear to watch it, and make up your own mind:


Cobra Update: Cosmic Central Race

Our Return of Light meditation has created a coherent consciousness signal across the universe that got the attention of the Cosmic Central race.

Cosmic Central race is the most advanced race which has evolved around the Cosmic Central Sun. It has now begun to focus its attention towards planet Earth and its liberation, because now there is enough consciousness on the surface of the planet to make cooperation with such evolved beings possible.

As a result of this interaction, certain aspects of liberation plan will be released to the surface population in the intermediate future.

Our Solar System is now full of beings from the Cosmic Central race and they are cooperating with the Light Forces from the Jupiter Command, Ashtar Command, Atlantis Command, Pleiadian, Sirian and Andromedan Fleet, Resistance Movement, positive Agartha factions and certain special forces called SURFACOM.

Cosmic Central race beings are also contacting the most advanced members of the surface population in their meditations, dreams and visions.

Upon the request of the Light Forces I am hereby releasing a meditation which you can use to connect and cooperate with the Cosmic Central race.

1. Use your own technique to bring you to a relaxed state of consciousness.

2. State your intent to use this meditation as a tool for the planetary liberation.

3. Visualize beings from the Cosmic Central race emanating from the Cosmic Central Sun, then being dispersed through Central Suns of all galaxies in this universe. Then visualize these beings entering through the Galactic Central Sun, then going through Alcyone Pleiadian stargate, then going through the Sirius stargate, then entering our Solar System and being positioned inside our Solar System in a flower of life mandala, and then connecting with all Light Forces above the surface, below the surface, and on the surface of the planet Earth.

4. Visualize beings from the Cosmic Central race transmuting all remaining darkness of this Universe until only Light remains. Visualize a new grand cosmic cycle beginning, bringing pure Light, Love and Happiness to all beings in the entire Universe.

Lengyel Goddess Vortex in Hungary has been chosen as the entry point for the energies of the Cosmic Central race. The reasons for this choice have to do with the 1996 Archon invasion, social dynamics behavior patterns of the most advanced Lightworkers, the position of the outer border of late Atlantean Mediterranean colonies, and conscious connection of shamen of Lengyel culture with the Galactic Central Sun of our Galaxy:…/Neolithic_circular_enclosures_in…

There is an important restructuring of the surface Light Forces teams in preparation for cooperation with Cosmic Central race and SURFACOM special forces. Justice is coming. Therefore, for the early phases of certain operations I need to expand my legal team and need an attorney that can at least to some degree understand and support my mission, and has a good understanding of international law, copyright issues, defamation and libel issues and harassment / threatening / cyberstalking issues. If you are such an attorney, you can contact

All that is Done will be Undone.

Victory of the Light!




How To Get Through College Without Being Buried In A Mountain Of Debt

By Guest Writer Grace Frenson,


We spend the first quarter of our lives in the education system.


How crazy is that?


Nothing is more rewarding than cruising your way through college, getting your degree – and of course, landing your dream job. Yet, at the same time, there is nothing as soul-crushing as the mountain of debt that college seems to be partnered with.


It’s pretty insane when you think about the fact that almost 1 in every 3 Americans are struggling to pay off their mountain of student debt from college.


We are pretty sure that is not a position that you want to find yourself in. Which is why we decided to create this guide to help you get through college, without that mountain of debt taking out all the sense of achievement from graduation.


Don’t Underestimate The Power Of Scholarships


One of the easiest ways to reduce the overhead expenses of college is scholarships. Yet, almost $2.3 billion in funding went unclaimed last year. These unclaimed scholarships were open for the taking.


Yep, you read that right!


You could have applied for one of these scholarships.


The problem is students seem to be under the impression that they need to be an ace in school to even be considered for a scholarship. This could not be further from the truth.


There are plenty of different resources that you can turn to for scholarships. Some are based on merits, others on sporting, religion, demographics, and so forth.


Here are a few good places to check out:



  • This website allows you to fill in a profile with all your information to help you find a scholarship that fits your needs. They have a huge database of scholarships for various types of individuals.
  • This website is pretty much the exact same as The only nifty advantage of is the fact that they have weekly/monthly competitions that you can enter to win cash.



There, are, of course, tons of other tools you can turn to. But this should be enough to get you started.


Do You Really Need To Live On Campus?



Trust me, I get it! You are finally out of high school. You are classified as an adult. You deserve to finally get the right to be independent, right?


I know, when I first got into college, I had butterflies in my stomach to get out of the house. There was nothing I wanted more than to move into a dorm on campus and enjoy my newfound independent lifestyle.


But guess what?


At the end of the day, I ended up sacrificing this benefit. I stayed with my parents and commuted to campus daily. Which saved me an absolute fortune in the long-run. Helping me ensure that by the time I did finally graduate, I had $0 debt to my name.


Student Loans Are An Option If You Are Willing To Work


The biggest reason why there is so much student loan debt in America is due to the fact that people do not realize the work that comes with this financing method. I don’t just mean long studying hours. I mean the grind of a side-job while keeping your grades superb.


I mean working until 2-3 AM every day, and being awake at 7 AM to get stuff done.


We are talking about grit and due.


If you do not manage to secure yourself a scholarship, grant, or other financing options. And student loans are really the only way forward – don’t be scared to go for it.


But, be sure to find yourself a way to make some cash on the side. Even if it’s a part-time job earning you a measly $400 a month.


Think about it.


If you are studying for four years, that’s a whopping $19,200 you could have already paid down to your student loan before you even graduate.


But how can you get a job?


The one option is to become a freelancer. Start up your own little gig making money online. There are plenty of platforms to help you get started, such as, and


Otherwise, you can also look more locally at job opportunities around your home. Or campus if you do need to stay on premises. Here is a guide to help you secure a part-time job as a college student.



“An Unavoidable Global Recession”: The Warnings Get Louder As Worldwide Economic Numbers Continue To Deteriorate

Economic numbers all over the world continue to get worse, and as you will see below, even New York Times columnist Paul Krugman is now warning of “an unavoidable global recession”.  Unfortunately, most Americans still have absolutely no idea that this is happening.  Most ordinary citizens are still under the impression that everything is going to be just fine, but the numbers suggest otherwise.  The Baltic Dry Index just plummeted to the lowest level that we have seen in three years, and this is yet another indication that the global trade war is causing widespread economic pain.  And according to Bloomberg, global economic growth has now dropped to the lowest level that we have seen since the Great Recession…

The global economy’s loss of momentum has left expansion now looking like its weakest since the global financial crisis, a development that’s already sparked a dramatic shift among central banks.

A UBS model suggests world growth slowed to a 2.1 percent annualized pace at the end of 2018, which it says would be the weakest since 2008-2009.

Unfortunately, it appears that things are getting even worse during the first few months of 2019.  In North America, Europe and Asia, signs of a major downturn are seemingly everywhere

Unfortunately, there hasn’t been much sign of that. China car sales dropped in January, and data last week showed U.S. retail sales posted their worst drop in nine years in December. In Europe, where the slowdown has been particularly marked, sentiment indicators continue to weaken, and the latest OECD leading indicator has also declined.

The numbers coming out of China are particularly striking.  Experts were stunned this week when it was announced that Chinese car sales had plunged 17.7 percent

Car sales in China continued to decline in January after their first full-year slump in more than two decades, adding to pressure on automakers who bet heavily on the market amid waning demand for cars from the U.S. to Europe.

Passenger vehicle wholesales fell 17.7 percent year-on-year, the biggest drop since the market began to contract in the middle of last year, while retail sales had their eighth consecutive monthly decline, industry groups reported Monday.

That is an absolutely disastrous number, and it is a sign that this will be a very, very tough year for the global auto industry.

Meanwhile, German industrial production is falling at a pace that we haven’t seen since the last global recession

“Unexpectedly,” German industrial production fell 3.9% in December 2018 compared to December 2017, after having fallen by a revised 4.0% in November, according to German statistics agency Destatis Thursday morning. These two drops were steepest year-over-year drops since 2009.

Even during the European Debt Crisis in 2011 and 2012 – it hit Germany’s industry hard as many European countries weaved in and out of a recession, with some countries sinking into a depression — German industrial production never fell as fast on a year-over-year basis as in November and December

But as bad as things are in Germany, they are even worse in Italy.

Italy’s economy has already fallen into a recession, and their debt problems continue to grow with each passing day.

Watch Italy, because it is going to be a key to the drama that is currently unfolding in Europe.

Here in the United States, we are still doing relatively better than much of the rest of the world, but our economy is slowing down too.  U.S. retail sales just suffered their “biggest drop in more than nine years”, and the stunning bankruptcy and liquidation of Payless ShoeSource has made front page news all over the nation

Payless ShoeSource confirmed Friday that it will close its 2,100 stores in the U.S. and Puerto Rico and start liquidation sales Sunday. The company is also shuttering its e-commerce operations.

The closings mark the biggest by a single chain this year and nearly doubles the number of retail stores set to close in 2019.

So what does all of this mean?

What all of this means is that this is the beginning of the end for the global economic bubble.  It is time to start getting serious about the economy again, and it is time to get prepared for the tough years that are ahead.

At this point, even the most clueless pundits in the mainstream media can see what is coming.  For example, New York Times columnist Paul Krugman is now warning that we are heading for “an unavoidable global recession” either at the end of this year or the beginning of next year

Professor Paul Krugman has warned a series of isolated downward economic trends around the world will spiral into an unavoidable global recession towards the end of 2019 or the beginning of next year. Mr Krugman said there is not “one big thing” prompting the stark forecast but instead blamed a number of incidents happening at the same time. He said a slump in the eurozone combined with the long-running US-China trade war, President Trump’s tax policy and world leaders’ lack of preparedness are increasing the risks of a worldwide economic slowdown.

If even Paul Krugman can see what is happening, then you know that time is short.

Prior to the Great Recession of 2008 and 2009, most people never would have imagined that we were about to enter a terrible global economic downturn.  Here in the U.S., it seemed like the economy was buzzing along quite nicely, and the vast majority of us had absolutely no idea what was really going on behind the scenes.

Similarly, right now most of us are conducting our lives as if nothing is going to change.  To most people, the system seems to be functioning normally and there appears to be no cause for alarm.

Unfortunately, things are not that simple.

Rubber bands can keep stretching for quite a while, but if you put too much pressure on them they will eventually snap.  At this point there is an enormous amount of pressure on our global economic bubble, and someday it will “snap” too.

It is just a matter of time.

Studies Warn Geoengineering Causes Rise in Global Neurological Diseases

Earth’s climate is changing at an unprecedented rate. With each passing year, there are increasing occurrences of record-breaking temperatures, species going extinct, and volatile weather patterns.

Instead of addressing the root cause of climate change, government agencies have implemented secretive large-scale geoengineering projects in an effort to deliberately modify the Earth’s climatic system.

Around 10 years ago, the concept of geoengineering was viewed as nothing more than a conspiracy theory. But today, the evidence and harmful effect of geoengineering has brought the reality of these government programs into the public spotlight.

Declassified government documents dating all the way back to 1978 reveal that geoengineering is much more than a conspiracy theory. These documents exposed the existence of several Federally funded research programs and committees dedicated to weather modification.

There is also evidence that geoengineering efforts still continue to this day. In 2014, a CBS news crew interviewed physicist Dr. Michio Kaku. In the interview, Dr. Kaku revealed that scientists were conducting large-scale weather modification experiments that involved shooting lasers and nanoparticles into the sky.

Spraying Toxins into the Air

Evidence suggests the nanoparticles that scientists are using to stabilize the climate include high concentrations of toxic aluminum.

In fact, a ground-breaking scientific study led by Dr. Marvin Herndon, a nuclear chemist and geochemist, found “evidence of geoengineering activity that has occurred for at least 15 years… the geoengineering activity via tanker-jet aircraft emplaces a non-natural, toxic substance in the Earth’s atmosphere” which results in the release of large amounts of aluminum nanoparticles.

Why Atmospheric Aluminum is Dangerous

Some of the most common sources of aluminum exposure include municipal water, food, canned beverages, and prescription drugs. In these cases, the human body only absorbs around 0.3% of the aluminum because the intestinal tract provides a considerable amount of protection. This means most people can handle a fair amount of exposure before damage occurs.

But atmospheric aluminum is a completely different story.

When inhaled, atmospheric aluminum bypasses the lungs and has direct access to the bloodstream.  From here it can circulate through the body and cause a significant amount of harm. This includes lung cancer, kidney damage, bone deformities, seizures, and anxiety.

There is also a great deal of research that reveals aluminum exposure can increase the risk of several brain diseases including Alzheimer’s. This is why Dr. Herndon proposed that geoengineering is responsible for the widespread rise of neurological disease around the world.

Protecting Yourself from Atmospheric Aluminum

Since geoengineering is an ongoing phenomenon, aluminum exposure is constant and unavoidable.

This continuous exposure causes the aluminum to accumulate within your cells and become increasingly dangerous over time.

The only way to truly protect yourself is to chelate, or remove, the aluminum from your cells. While there are several natural substances out there that can chelate aluminum from the body, a natural mineral called zeolite is the most popular choice. Unlike other chelators, zeolite can travel deep into the cells where aluminum accumulates. From there it can pull aluminum from the body like a magnet, so it is no longer a threat to your health.

As Malaysia and Ireland Find Out, You Stand Up for Palestinian Rights at Your Peril

It takes an enormous effort for any country to oppose Israel, but particularly a small country that has to rely on bigger powers. It is even harder to impose effective pragmatic measures against Israel, as in the case of Ireland and Malaysia.
