Alastair Crooke: ‘The Establishment’s Last Roll of the Dice’: What Will Become of Europe?  
.
Strategic Culture 15.02.2019
Alastair Crooke
Francis Fukuyama in his End of History essay, Gavin Jacobson writes in the TLS, “is ordinarily read as the apologia for rampant capitalism and Anglo-American interventions in the Middle East. Yet little ‘Redemption’ is to be found in his liberal, end-state. Indeed, the [future, Fukuyama wrote], risked becoming a “life of masterless slavery”, a world of civic putrefaction and cultural torpor, exfoliated of all contingency and complication. “The last men” would be reduced to Homo Economicus, guided solely by the rituals of consumption, and shorn of the animating virtues and heroic drives that propelled history forward”.
Fukuyama warned that people would either accept this state of affairs, or, more likely, revolt against the tedium of their own existence.
Effectively since the Great Wars, but more particularly, “since the financial crash of 2008, across Europe and in the United States, there has been (to borrow a phrase from Frank Kermode) a “sense of an ending”. Liberal orthodoxies have fallen into radical doubt. Populist movements are arrayed against the political and economic order that has stood in place for the past fifty years. Electorates have leaped into unknown futures”, Jacobson concludes – linking this to Fukuyama’s prediction that Homo Economicus’ ennui ultimately would lead them to revolt.
Well, orthodoxies have indeed fallen into doubt – and, for good reason: The prevailing liberal construct, with its grand theory about bringing peace and economic prosperity to the world by pulling down borders and uniting mankind into a new universal order, is in serious disarray. It has lost its credibility.
Let us not tarry too long over its recent history: the faux recovery; the massaged statistics, the panglossian narrative, the bailout of the financial system plus the ‘austerity’ deemed essential to whittle down the overhang of government debt, precisely incurred in order to bailout the financial system – with all austerity’s substantial hurts, justified in the name of restoring European competitivity.
But, as former US Budget Director, David Stockman has noted, the idea to restore competitivity in this way, always was nonsense. Central Bank policies of quantitative easing (QE) – the ‘loose credit’ tsunami unleashed at ‘no cost’ interest rates, over the last couple of decades – landed the ‘60%’ with a high cost economy which exactly precluded competition: “The Fed [in co-ordination with other Central Banks] drove up costs, prices and wages at 2%, come hell or high water. You do that for two or three decades and, all of a sudden, you are totally uncompetitive. You have the highest cost structure in the world economy, and the jobs and production migrate to where companies can find lower costs and better profits.”
So here we are (after all the talking up of ‘recovery’), with Italy’s economy shrinking again, and now, with the German economy, Deutsche Bank warns, drifting toward recession. (German factory orders posted in December 2018 their biggest year-on-year slump since 2012). Evidently ‘the grand theory’ has not worked. So what does all this spell for the future of Europe?
“The idle vassalage” into which the majority would sink, which Fukuyama foresaw (and lamented), was already in evidence well before 2008 in European states, including Britain. Slavoj Žižek wrote in The Ticklish Subject: The absent centre of political ontology (1999) that “the conflict of [earlier] global ideological visions embodied in different parties which compete for power” had been “replaced by the collaboration of enlightened technocrats (economists, public opinion specialists...) and liberal multiculturalists … in the guise of a more or less universal consensus”. Tony Blair’s notion of the “Radical Centre” was, Žižek notes, a perfect illustration of this shift.
And, infatuated with the clarity and intellectual rigor of their vision centred on the unification of Europe, the ‘liberal’ élites have come to view it not as one legitimate political option among others, but as the only legitimate option. The moral illegitimacy of Britain’s Brexit thus became the unrelenting theme for decrying the Brexit vote. Adherents of the grand theory now find it increasingly difficult to see any need for the kind of toleration for national, cultural self-determination they once permitted. Tolerance, like nationalism, is out; anger is in.
Where now, if Europe is stalling economically? What might be the political repercussions? Recall what occurred in Japan some years ago: Japan was also over-indebted, the stock market bubble had popped in 1989, and financial experts had forecast a massive collapse of JGBs (Japanese government debt). What happened then was that Japan found itself in an economic stagnation that has lasted for decades. Is this then the future? Is the whole world about to ‘turn Japanese’ where, having so much debt, we cannot somehow return to historical normal yields (historically around 5%)?
The Japanese it seems just accepted the ‘tedium’. Does Europe too just move to a very low-yield, low-growth, stagnation – within a global paradigm of stasis – that persists until we get to the point where there is either some populist uprising, or some event that resets the system.
Maybe not: Japan was always a special case. Its’ debt was held almost entirely domestically, and growth was occurring elsewhere in the world – albeit not in Japan. Nonetheless Japan serves as a ‘canary in the coal mine’ of the deadening consequences of excessive debt loads.
Were we, however, to enter into a period where the US and Europe see little growth, and China is down at 4% and struggling – and having to bail out its banking system, and India hasn’t come through as people thought it would, then perhaps ‘this time’ Japan may not be such a good guide.
The point here is that we are at the crux of our dilemma: ‘the enlightened technocrats’ not only have got it wrong, but they have ‘painted themselves into the corner’ of yet more austerity for the 60%; and of throwing fiat money (perhaps even helicopter money) at economies already zombified by debt overload. One expert, Peter Schiff, always expected this:
“The reason that I originally said that I did not expect the Fed to raise rates again, was because I knew that raising rates was the first step in a journey that they could not finish: that in their attempt to normalize rates, the stock market bubble would burst, and the economy would re-enter recession.”
“Normalizing interest rates when you’ve created an abnormal amount of debt, is impossible.”
“I knew all along that at some point, that would ‘be it’, you know: the straw that breaks the camel’s back. I didn’t know how many rate hikes the bubble economy could take, but I knew there was a limit. And I still knew that there’s no way they were ever going to get back up to normal or neutral (rate of interest). Whatever that number is – It ain’t 2%.”
“Everything that the Federal Reserve built up based on cheap money, was starting to implode as the cheap money was being withdrawn … The US economy is built for zero. It’s not working at 2% and you’re starting to see that.” (Schiff was speaking at the Vancouver Investment Conference).
Europe, it seems then, indeed is hovering at the cusp of debt-induced recession. And the Central Bankers have no response. But to speak about the first recession in 26 years, is also to speak about a Europe where the youngest generation has no experience – no concept – of what a recession is really like. What does that imply? Grant Williams, founder of the influential financial Real Vision Television gives one answer:
[This is one thing that I really wanted to be proven wrong on]. “And that is that for the last several years, I have predicted a dramatic increase in populism, social unrest, and violence. And a lot of people thought we were conspiracy theory nutcases. Now, Paris is on fire … There is the old joke about the difference between a recession and a depression: It’s a recession when your neighbor loses his job and it’s a depression when you lose yours. That’s what I fear. I think that you’ll find that after ‘08 people understand a lot more about finance than they did before ‘08. They may not realize it, but I think they now understand bailouts, they understand how unfair bailouts are when they’re targeted at Wall Street, as opposed to Main Street. And I think that what you’re going to see, sadly, is the Fed and the government will do what they’ve always tried to do, which is bail out Wall Street to ‘save the system’.
If you have a bad economy and you have people feeling like they’re disenfranchised and you tell them, you know what, we need to do this to save the system, well, suddenly the reaction changes. And the reaction is to hell with it, let’s burn the system to the ground. And if we’re in that place, which, again, it feels like we are – when you have this chasm between left and right in politics, you have an economy that is running on fumes, you have a stock market that is potentially at all-time highs, and you have a moment in time where things like the national debt start to matter, I worry like you do that the only way people are going to be able to express this is the way they are doing it in France now. And that is going to be a very, very bad outcome for one and all.”
Here, Williams’ discourse intersects with Fukuyama’s attenuated Homo Economicus: What happens when the latter, guided now solely by the “rituals of consumption in a world of civic putrefaction and cultural torpor” (now disembedded from the sense of esteem that comes from being valued as a human precisely as member of a family, a culture, a history, a people, a spiritual tradition or, a nation), faces the abyss: ‘the void’ of recession. Fear thrives particularly in the empty construct of an homogenized universality – absent to values, such as truth, beauty, vitality, integrity and life.
Williams responds simply: “Europe fails”.
“Macron is interesting. Macron came out of nowhere. Here we have an ex-Rothschild banker who was put up as the alternative to the very unpalatable – to the establishment anyway – Marine Le Pen … Well, guess what? The establishment pulled Macron out of nowhere: Young, handsome, erudite, very much in the Obama mold, who … spoke well, he looked great, he was very presentable, he was stylish. And Macron was that in spades. The fact that he was an ex-Rothschild banker seemed to pass-by most of the people voting for him. And he got it. And the establishment breathed a huge sigh of relief.
“But, guess what? He’s turned out, again, to be an appalling President. His approval ratings are – I don’t know if I’m right in saying they’re below Hollande, but they’re down there with Hollande, which I thought would be a remarkably difficult thing to do – but he’s achieved it with some ease. So I think Macron, to me, represented the establishment’s last roll of the dice. You know, here’s a guy, we’re going to put him in there, we’re going to get him to say all of the things we need him to say, and he’s going to calm things down, and he’s going to help this whole thing blow over. And nothing of the sort has happened. I think that ... this populist movement is not going to just go away, and be placated. I think what’s happened to Macron in France is the absolute embodiment of that. So the fact that he is struggling, the fact that he is looking as though – I mean, in years gone by he would have already stepped down. Back when politicians had some shame, he would have already stepped down and taken responsibility for the state of the country. But they don’t do that anymore.
“So a failure of the EU is [that] everybody has their own currency and everybody has a border again. Now, the key to this is going to be the euro. Because it is the monetary union that is creating the problems now. It worked great when interest rates were going in the right direction. It worked great for everybody. Now they’ve started to go in the other direction and the debts have started to matter and the pressure is on these countries … People don’t understand what the euro represents. [Yet] they know that they can’t make ends meet.
“And they know that an answer to this from a political standpoint is to go back to – I’ll use Italy as an example – is to go back to the lira, pay off all of your debts in lira – a massively devalued lira – and not be forced to maintain a budget deficit that is dictated by Brussels – and to be able to spend and help your country come out of a recession. That’s what’s going to happen. It was always going to happen.
“But the way the bureaucrats in Brussels treat everybody – because they have to toe a hard line, they have to use the stick and not the carrot to keep this thing together – is we’re going to be all Brexit”.

My opinion. They'll abscond with as many zeroes of public cash as they can get away with, with help from JEUophiles and banksters still secure in their position. That doesn't exclude leaders.

We’ve All Been Played - Max Igan

Earth Empaths February 3, 2019
Christine
“No man can reveal to you aught but that which already lies half asleep in the dawning of your knowledge.
The teacher who walks in the shadow of the temple, among his followers, gives not of his wisdom but rather of his faith and his lovingness.
If he is indeed wise he does not bid you enter the house of his wisdom, but rather leads you to the threshold of your own mind.”
― Khalil Gibran, The Prophet
~~~
I really do admire Max Igan and while I don’t always have the same perspective I do share in his assessment of the world stage of distraction and also his awakened truth. It has become ever more apparent that Truth is a resonance band if you will, and many people are simultaneously receiving the same message from Spirit, we each express it uniquely and that is what makes life so vitally interesting.
In this video he speaks to something I have acutely aware of and have been actively sharing the same message. Allow that I pose it as a question: Are your thoughts and feeling really yours? For years now I have fine tuned my inner radar and it is rather easy to detect that which comes from indoctrinated belief or “social norms”. Heck, I do realize I’ve spent a life time swimming against the current of prevailing belief systems.
Truth is so simple that most miss it.

5 Flat Earth Arguments DEBUNKED
Harry Evett
Youtube on Jan 8, 2018
In this video we take a look at and debunk a flat earth video by the channel Flat Earth Talk. Enjoy!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qkRnJutL5ko
Is this made by a flat earther or sponsored by a wealthy flat earth supporter?
Why else would it be so pathetic?
"I don't want to lose my funding"
"These photos may be CGI but it doesn't prove a flat earth."
I'm easy either way. So far there seems to be a lot more evidence for a flat earth than the globalists can muster for a sphere-ish or pear shaped world despite that the illuminated jesuits' NASA could have proven it a sphere hundreds of times. Add to that the satano-masonic Vatican is converting the planet to talmudic luciferianism by degrading christianity whilst degrading the bible. Flat earth is a fact according to the bible.
Why only debunking? Prove it is a globe. Or explain why that's not possible?

Btw. There are no vids that prove midnight Sun in Antarctica, just some that have been chopped or turned off and turned on again or CGI'd, worthy of NASA fakery. 24 hours continuous daylight would prove the jesuit originated sphere hypothesis, less would go a long way to proving the flat earth theory.

In my opinion catholics should:
Stop paying your local priest (vatican cash extortion agent and maybe pervert) and stop paying the satanic-masonic paedophiles that form the vatican protection racket (pay up or you'll go to hell).
Otherwise you're paying the bastards to screw you and maybe your kids.
These deceivers work with the City banksters and the Black Nobility (Windsors). Break them. No-one needs a bureaucrat to tell them how to pray, let alone to pay them for the disservice. An evil organisation that damages kids and even kills them, and extorts cash from you so that you are paying them to do the damage.
If you need it, form a local organisation of trustworthies that is free, else realise that bureaucracy is unnecessary and impoverishes you.
Other religions need to wake up too. Maybe set them an example.
The vatican's intent is to form a one world religion, its god being Satan via Lucifer. In cohorts with the Ashkenazis (Rothschilds' chosen) that are trying to form a single colored slave race under a single 'false judean' controlled government.

A simple search: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=zerohedge+vatican+pedo&t=opera&ia=web

When an organisation is rotten to the core, like most bureaucracies that pretend to serve the public while defrauding and abusing it, the only solution is to discard it.

Secret treaties signal massive world changes as early as March
By Benjamin Fulford Weekly Reports
Fourwinds10.com
Intense negotiations are taking place now at the highest levels of world power both in secret and in public, multiple sources agree. These could result in earth-changing announcements as early as March, they say. The power struggle in Washington, D.C. is also heading for some sort of climax, as can be seen by U.S. President Donald Trump’s threat to declare a national emergency.
One big public move was the announcement of a one-world religion by the Pope, a senior Islamic representative, and representatives from many other religions. This came after Pope Francis became the first pope in history to visit the Arabian Peninsula, the birthplace of Islam. The text of the announcement can be seen here:
http://w2.vatican.va/content/francesco/en/travels/2019/outside/documents/papa-francesco_20190204_documento-fratellanza-umana.html
CIA sources in Southeast Asia say that moving the UN headquarters from New York to Laos will be a big theme of the February 27-28 summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean strongman Kim Jong Un.
Asian secret societies, the U.S. military-industrial complex, and European royals are working on creating a world future planning agency, according to sources involved in the negotiations. Several official documents related to this have already been signed, say British royal family sources.
MI6, P2 Freemason, Pentagon, and Asian secret society sources also say there is also a strong push for some sort of world government to be announced. This can now be done in a manner in which there are no losers, only winners, thanks to a rare and nearly perfectly equal balance of world power, they say.
The map at the link below shows the three power groups, with the Western alliance in blue, the Eurasian grouping in red, and the Southern alliance in grey. Each is roughly equal in land mass and population. Superficially, the map shows the groups’ views on the government of Venezuela, but in reality it is a division over control of the world.
https://bigthink.com/strange-maps/which-countries-support-maduro-guaido
The announcement of a unified passport for all African nations last week was one visible sign of the move toward a world government.
https://wnobserver.com/world/african-union-leaders-gathered-at-opening-session-of-32nd-summit/
In any case, the battle for Venezuela can also be seen as a failed attempt by the neocons (Khazarian mafia) to regain control of the international financial system by seizing the world’s largest oil reserves.
Pentagon sources note that the “U.S. puppet in Venezuela was not recognized by supranational organizations like the European Union, the Organization of American States, the IMF, the World Bank, the African Union, or the UN.”
Also, the UN, the Vatican, and the Red Cross refused to deliver “humanitarian aid” to puppet opposition leader Juan Guaidó because it was a cover for arms shipments, the sources say. As a result, “the Venezuela coup was an epic fail,” they said.

Enemy of humanity pharms corp's fight a losing battle with censorship
Pinterest attempts to block spread of misinformation related to vaccines
The Grind http://thedailygrind.news/
In a move dangerously close to censorship, the social media site Pinterest announced it would stop showing search results related to vaccination.
Pinterest made the decision after it discovered that most shared images warned users against vaccination (advice which directly contradicts established medical guidelines).
Pinterest says a temporary ban is necessary in order to curb the spread of misinformation and has plans to remove "polluted" content from its site.
The Context
Pinterest's ban comes amid a nationwide call for social media sites to be held legally accountable for false or dangerous information posted to their sites - including terrorism-recruitment campaigns, misinformation about health-related issues, hate speech, and sexual harassment.
Lawmakers last week expressed concerns to Google and Facebook about content that discourages parents from vaccinating their kids.
"Until recently, social-media companies have drawn a line in the sand saying they're not arbiters of truth; that they are passive purveyors of information," says Samuel Woolley, a researcher who studies social media's role in the spread of disinformation.
"There's been pressure on them for a long time to respond to this because the reality of this is the spread of misinformation - especially around vaccines - leads to extremely bad consequences, including death."
Parents' failure to vaccinate their children is believed to have caused a measles outbreak last winter that infected more than 60 people in Washington state's Clark County.
The County's public health director, Dr. Alan Melnick, says "the onslaught of fairly sophisticated but nonsense messages on social media" contributed to the outbreak.


Dr. Brian Hooker’s bombshell testimony before Congress reveals how MMR vaccines INCREASE deaths from measles
Natural News February 19, 2019 by: Mike Adams
Via Children’s Health Defense, headed by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., who is perhaps the only prominent Democrat in America that’s actually fighting to protect children from toxic vaccines, 5G electromagnetic radiation and dangerous fluoride chemicals in the water supply:
(Testimony from Dr. Brian S. Hooker)
There is a problem with measles in Washington State, but it’s not low vaccination rates, it’s actually high vaccination rates with a vaccine product unable to provide lifetime immunity or vigorous passive maternal protection to infants during the first year of life.
When the measles vaccine was first introduced, most people over the age of 15 who had wild measles had lifetime immunity. In developed nations, like other communicable infections, measles was no longer dangerous except in rare circumstances because of inadequate nutrition, poor sanitation, and / or lack of healthcare. Because having the measles was a routine part of childhood, teens, adults, parents, and grandparents were immune. And because of maternal passive immunity, infants were protected. The death rate due to measles in Washington State in the four years prior to the introduction of the measles vaccine was 1.4 in 10,000 cases and approximately 2 in 1,000,000 in the general population.
Legislators are being told that use of personal and religious belief exemptions are putting the public’s health in danger. They are told that two infants were recently exposed to measles and the babies are in danger. But in fact, if the mothers of the children had wild measles when they were children and they are nursing, the babies may be protected. If the mothers were vaccinated, even if they are nursing, they may not be. Additionally, maternal antibodiestransported across the placenta can provide vital immunity against measles for infants.

Israeli Attorney General Indicts Netanyahu On Charges Of Bribery, Fraud & Breach Of Trust
by Tyler Durden
Thu, 02/28/2019 - 11:29
Three months after Israeli police recommended that the country's attorney general pursue charges against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu over his alleged involvement in "Bezeq Walla Affair", it appears an indictment is finally being handed down on Thursday, much to the longtime leader's chagrin.
Since Netanyahu and his wife have become embroiled in multiple scandals over the past few years, seemingly all of which have yielded recommendations of prosecution, let us pause a moment for a quick refresher on the most serious allegations. The crux of the case is that Netanyahu and his wife accepted bribes from Shaul Elovitch, the owner of Israel's largest telecoms firm, Bezeq. Elovitch also owns the "Walla" news website. The prime minister crossed a line when he allegedly fired Communications Ministry Director-General Avi Berger and hired ex-Netanyahu campaign manager Shlomo Filber in a bid to help guarantee special treatment for Elovitch and his companies. In exchange, Netanyahu and his wife purportedly struck a deal with Elovitch for favorable coverage on his news website.
In addition to the bribery and breach of trust charges stemming from Bezeq-Walla, Israel's Attorney General Avichai Mendelblit said Thursday that he intends to indict Netanyahu for fraud and breach of trust in two other cases. All charges are pending a hearing where Netanyahu will be given a chance to respond, according to Haaretz.
The Israeli Shekel dropped on the news.
The indictments, which followed a three-year long investigation, mark the first time in Israel's history that a sitting prime minister has been indicted, and come just six weeks before a general election (though Netanyahu is far from the first Israeli politician to face serious criminal charges).
A brief explainer of the charges can be found below:
Courtesy of Haaretz
In a last-ditch effort to block the announcement, Netanyahu's Likud party petitioned the High Court on Thursday and put them off until after the April 9 election, but Justice Minister Mendelblit rebuffed this request, citing the "principle of equality before the law."
Likud party leaders slammed the indictment as a "political hit job" and have claimed that the case is a "house of cards" that will soon collapse. Which brings us to our next point: Though Netanyahu has been hurt by the scandal, he still remains immensely popular in Israel. While the charges certainly aren't good, they are a political obstacle that he can still surmount.

Candida, cancer and turmeric
Here is How Candida May Actually Cause Cancer
Plus natural solutions
By Alexandra Preston
Natural Society January 15, 2016
For many years, the only known link between Candida spp. infections, and cancer was that it is an opportunistic pathogen taking advantage of the immune system damage caused by chemo. Recently, new research has found that Candida albicans can actually also promote cancer by producing carcinogens, causing inflammation, increasing the response of Th17 cells, and molecular mimicry of our own immune cells.
http://www.tandfonline.com.ezproxy.med.nyu.edu/doi/full/10.3109/1040841X.2014.913004
Candida produces the carcinogens known as nitrosamines and acetaldehyde. Nitrosamines activate specific pro-cancer genes, while acetaldehyde is a DNA-damaging carcinogen with many downstream effects. Inflammation promotes cancer by causing tissue damage and production of chemicals that promote angiogenesis, proliferation, migration, and adhesion while inhibiting apoptosis of damaged cells.
Th17 cells, which are dominant in the response to Candida infections, are also responsible for production of chemicals that can increase angiogenesis and tumor growth.
On top of this, antibodies produced against Candida albicans can mimic a receptor on white blood cells, possibly causing antibodies to be formed against our own immune cells. This is another strike against sugar and alcohol consumption in relation to cancer risk, as both alcohol metabolism and sugar fermentation lead to acetaldehyde production.
One real-life report of cancer being in association with fungal infections comes from Meinolf Karthaus, who observed three children with leukemia suddenly go into remission after antifungal treatment for “secondary” infections.
Additionally, one doctor had found fungal spores in every tissue sample of cancer that he studied, as he used saline instead of formaldehyde to transport the samples in order to preserve any possible fungi.
Natural Anti-Fungal Solutions for Candida
While pharmaceutical antifungals can cause even more damage to patients’ liver and kidneys, curcumin, the “main” medicinal compound in turmeric, may be an alternative.
On top of exhibiting potent antifungal activity against Candida, curcumin also has anticancer properties, such as the ability to destroy cancer stem cells. Curcumin has antifungal effects against other species as well. Cryptococcus, Aspergillus, Trichosporon, and Paracoccidioides strains have been shown to be vulnerable to its effects.
Additionally, curcumin can prevent resistance of Candida to the antifungal drug fluconazole.
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21539505
It appeared to be that resistant Candida were able to pump fluconazole out of the cell bodies. Despite curcumin’s poor water solubility and thus bioavailability, nanoparticles and fat soluble delivery methods can overcome this limitation. More traditionally, golden milk is a beverage that increases availability of turmeric to the body, and can be made at home.
http://naturalsociety.com/turmeric-absorption-super-benefits-black-pepper/
Besides curcumin, clove oil may also be effective against Candida infections.
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24015106
In one study, even the vapour of clove essential oil was able to inhibit several species of fungi, though the oil vapor was only strong enough to temporarily stop Candida growth without killing the cells.

The ice age era has started
Professor Valentina Zharkova Confirms “Super” Grand Solar Minimum
The Next Grand Minimum November 22, 2018 Russ Steele
Professor Valentina Zharkova gave a presentation of her Climate and the Solar Magnetic Field hypothesis at the Global Warming Policy Foundation in October, 2018. The information she unveiled should shake/wake you up.
Zharkova was one of the few that correctly predicted solar cycle 24 would be weaker than cycle 23 — only 2 out of 150 models predicted this.
Her models have run at a 93% accuracy and her findings suggest a Super Grand Solar Minimum is on the cards beginning 2020 and running for 350-400 years. [Not the Grand Minimum but the full cycle]
The last time we had a little ice age only two magnetic fields of the sun went out of phase.
This time, all four magnetic fields are going out of phase.
Here is the Professors full presentation: https://youtu.be/M_yqIj38UmY
I am interested in the reader view of Professor Valentina Zharkova presentation. Is it credible? Please comment, let us get a conversation going.

Goring Gore's Polar Bear Nonsense
NEW REPORT: POLAR BEARS CONTINUE TO THRIVE
Date: 27/02/19 Press Release, Global Warming Policy Foundation
INTERNATIONAL POLAR BEAR DAY
Inuit paying the price of rising bear populations
The 2018 State of the Polar Bear report, published today by the Global Warming Policy Foundation, confirms that polar bears are continuing to thrive, despite recent reductions in sea ice levels. This finding contradicts claims by environmentalists and some scientists that falls in sea ice would wipe out bear populations.
The report’s author, zoologist Dr Susan Crockford, says that there is now very little evidence to support the idea that the polar bear is threatened with extinction by climate change.
“We now know that polar bears are very resourceful creatures. They have made it through warm periods in the past and they seem to be taking the current warming in their stride too”.
In fact, it is the human residents of the Arctic Circle who seem to have most to worry about. With more and more bears on the landscape at all times of year, there have been worrying reports of people being threatened, mauled and even killed, particularly from Nunavut, in the Canadian north.
As Dr Crockford explains,
“The people of Nunavut are not seeing starving, desperate bears – quite the opposite. Yet polar bear specialists are saying these bears are causing problems because they don’t have enough sea ice to feed properly. The facts on the ground make their claims look silly, including the abundance of fat bears. Residents are pushing their government for a management policy that makes protection of human life the priority.”
Key findings

How are people going to recover the cash that the AGW by CO2 hoax spawned carbon credit con stole?
How are taxpayers going to recover the 'inappropriately' imposed carbon taxes?
When is the regime of the day going to admit that AGW by CO2 is just plain wrong?

When insistently quizzed on the anthropogenic CO2 influence on climate by a likely fund challenged "climatologist", Professor Valentina Zharkova dismissed it as too small to measure.

Has anyone researched how brown bear fur turned white? Low UV likely had a lot to with it. Pale skin is more efficient at making vit. D for example.

Dark Secrets of the Rockefeller Family
strictlyrevolution
Youtube Jul 18, 2015
Full 2015 documentary about how the Rockefeller family has become one of the most wealthy and most powerful families on earth.

1. Early life of John D. Rockefeller
This video shows the chronological time-line of the Rockefeller family, starting with how William Avery 'Devil Bill' Rockefeller Sr. (1810-1906) schooled his son John D. Rockefeller (1839-1937) to be a cunning businessman. 'Devil Bill' Rockefeller's son John D. Rockefeller became successful in the commodities trade at a very young age

2. The creation of the biggest oil monopoly in the world.
John D. Rockefeller then decided to seek his fortune elsewhere and moved to Cleveland Ohio, where the oil business began to boom. There he established an oil refinery and gained prosperity through cunning plots, ruthlessness, conspiracy, shady deals and other criminal deeds. John D's. "Standard Oil" company would grow and expand to become the biggest oil monopoly in the world. The Standard Oil monopoly got so big and powerful, that in 1911, the U.S. Supreme Court decided that the oil company violated the US Antitrust Law and that it had to be split up. This created various new successful Rockefeller oil companies, such as Exxon-Mobil (Esso), Chevron Corporation, Texaco and Gulf Oil. Having a positive effect on the stock market, the 1911 Supreme Court decision in effect made the Rockefeller family even more rich and powerful.

The Rockefellers have always had intimate business and family relations with other powerful family dynasties, such as the Morgan banking family, members of the steel magnates of the Carnegie family, the DuPont family and the Rothschild banking families from Europe. The Rockefellers were connected to the Union Pacific Railroad company of E.H. Harriman. They were involved in the sponsorship of the Kuhn & Loeb bank in the United Kingdom and they had numerous business deals with Hitler's Nazi regime in Germany. There were the instrumental force behind the German chemical company I.G. Farben, which built and controlled the concentration camp Auschwitz, situated around the I.G. Farben chemical factory. Rockefeller's Standard Oil patented fuel even powered the entire Nazi air force 'the Luftwaffe'.

3. David Rockefeller in the 20th and 21st century.
During the 20th century David Rockefeller and other descendants of John D. Rockefeller maintained their wealth through banking, oil and expanded their power through politics and think-tanks or other non government organisations (NGOs). David Rockefeller, the oldest member of the Rockefeller family, is one of the founding members of the secretive Bilderberg Group, the Trilateral Commission and the Council on Foreign Relations.

4. The full dominance of the Rockefeller empire
The power of the Rockefeller family is not limited to the oil industry, they control large portions of the banking industry, the central banking system in the US through the Federal Reserve and overseas the European Central Bank. Through Rockefeller-controlled companies, organisations, think-tanks and other NGO's the family created The United Nations, Bilderberg Group, Trilateral Commission, Council on Foreign Relations, Planned Parenthood, the Population Council, the Council of the Americas and the Rockefeller Foundation. Among other Rockefeller companies are: Monsanto, United Airlines, American Airlines, American Railroads, AT&T, Honeywell, Quaker Oats, and AXA Equitable Life Insurance. The estimated combined Rockefeller fortune is so big that it can be expressed in percentages of the entire US economy. The ultimate plan of these international oligarchs is to enslave humanity under a tyrannical one world government, ruled and controlled by them.

Why Does The UN Still Exist?
KENNETH ANDERSON
Hoover July 25, 2012
What exactly is the United Nations and, for that matter, why is there still a United Nations at all? How has it managed to survive over time, from 1945 down to the present—given its long record of underperformance, frequent outright failure, and even more frequent irrelevance?
On the United Nations’ core issues—collective peace and security, development, and universal human values and rights—its record is mediocre, unless one counts sheer institutional persistence as enough. And that record is particularly poor concerning the issue from which the collective sprang in 1945: international peace and security through the collective itself. Why, then, has not the ruthless evolutionary logic of history pruned it as a failed institutional sapling in a relentlessly competitive forest, as the League was pruned?
The textbooks in international law and organizations provide one set of answers to account for the persistence of the United Nations. They tell us the heroic story of the United Nations’ founding in 1945 and the first meetings in San Francisco; Eleanor Roosevelt et al. They tell us about the efforts of the Second World War Allies to create an organization that would be able to establish true collective security and avoid the fatal—and predictable—errors of international organizations that yielded, among other things, the failed League of Nations and the naïve Kellogg-Briand Pact. They describe the present-day organization as an attempt to provide global governance in a recalcitrant world. They tend, above all, to tell a progressive moral history—“Whig history”—of advances toward greater and better international order through international law and organizations.
Image: Delegates take a vote at the San Francisco conference, 1945 (via UN Photos)
Accounts from the field of international relations tend to be more skeptical, but their skepticism comes typically from a realist perspective. The skepticism is descriptive rather than normative. These international-relations accounts do not necessarily challenge the normative goals of the United Nations and international order but instead note just how difficult the task is and the limited success the institution has had.
But descriptive and normative accounts of the United Nations, successes and failures, seen from the outside are not the only accounts that matter. One would get a rather different perspective on the United Nations than either of these big-picture external accounts by perusing the institution’s finances. For those (few) willing to delve into its internal budget, management, fiscal control, accounting, managerial structures, and labor relations, a striking organizational beast emerges. The organization’s priorities are mirrored in its budgets and fiscal structures that allocate its resources. This is a picture of the United Nations characterized by rent-seeking and sometimes outright corruption, lack of fiscal discipline or control, and a chief executive officer, the secretary-general, who has no exact idea how many people work for his organization.

TRUMP ASSASSINATION FEAR RISES
AFTER US MILITARY OBLITERATES 81 TERRORISTS LINKED TO FOUR DEMOCRAT PARTY US CONGRESSWOMEN
Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers
3-2-19
A shocking new Ministry of Defense (MoD) report circulating in the Kremlin today states that President Putin has ordered 3,500 servicemen from air defense units to immediately start tactical drills at 30 training ranges in response to the US military having obliterated with airstrikes this past week at least 81 radical Islamic terrorists in Somalia—a national security defensive move said needed because this American action was led by the counterintelligence unit of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) who, for reasons still unknown, have placed under global electronic surveillance US Congresswomen Maxine Waters, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez—and about whom the Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) maintains have formed a cabal to infiltrate into the United States terrorists from Somalia to assassinate President Trump—after which Russia will be blamed and attacked. [Note: Some words and/or phrases appearing in quotes in this report are English language approximations of Russian words/phrases having no exact counterpart.]
According to this report, on 21 January 2017, the day after President Trump was sworn into office, a socialist-led mass protest called the Women's March on Washington was initiated against him—but that the American people were not allowed to know by their mainstream propaganda media establishment that it had been organized by a radical Palestinian-American activist named Linda Sarsour—who maintains close ties to the radical Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization and with rabidly anti-semitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.
Following her organization of this mass anti-Trump protest, this report details, radical leftist activist Linda Sarsour began backing the equally radical Palestinian-American woman named Rashida Tlaib to become the Democrat Party US Representative for Michigan's 13th Congressional District—began promoting the “Back Maxine” movement to re-elect Democrat Party leftist-socialist US Congresswoman Maxine Waters—began backing the radical Somali-American woman Ilhan Omar to become the Democrat Party US Representative for Minnesota's 5th Congressional District—and, most important to note, backed and campaigned with “socialist darling” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to become the Democrat Party US Representative for New York's 14th Congressional District—all of whom won and are now US Congresswomen—the most important one of them being Ocasio-Cortez whom Sarsour proclaimed was “the hope we’ve been waiting for”.

Virtually unknown to the American people, this report continues, is the stunning fact that no rules or laws exist for members of the US Congress in obtaining for themselves security clearances to view their nations most closely held secrets—a fact that raised alarm with both American and Russian intelligence analysts upon them discovering that a Somalia radical Islamic terrorist from Somalia named Abdulahi Hasan Sharif was able to become the first in history US-Mexico border crosser to conduct a terror attack in North America based on top secret documents he was found in possession of showing US border security procedures suspected (by the SVR) to have come from the office of US Congresswoman Maxine Waters—and that prompted President Trump to issue an order declaring that the US military is now in charge of issuing all security clearances.
