Will There Be A Major Stock Market Crash Before The End Of 2017?

Will There Be A Major Stock Market Crash Before The End Of 2017?

News Image By Michael Snyder/End Of The American Dream September 19, 2017 Share this article:

Will there be a major stock market crash before the end of 2017?  To many of us, it seems like we have been waiting for this ridiculous stock market bubble to burst for a very long time.  

The experts have been warning us over and over again that stocks cannot keep going up like this indefinitely, and yet this market has seemed absolutely determined to defy the laws of economics.  

But most people don't remember that we went through a similar thing before the financial crisis of 2008 as well.  I recently spoke to an investor that shorted the market three years ahead of that crash.  

In the end his long-term analysis was right on the money, but his timing was just a bit off, and the same thing will be true with many of the experts this time around.
On Monday, I was quite stunned to learn what Brad McMillan had just said about the market.  He is considered to be one of the brightest minds in the financial world, and he told CNBC that stocks would need to fall "somewhere between 30 and 40 percent just to get to fair value"...

Brad McMillan -- who counsels independent financial advisors representing $114 billion in assets under management -- told CNBC on Monday that the stock market is way overvalued.

"The market probably would have to drop somewhere between 30 and 40 percent to get to fair value, based on historical standards," said McMillan, chief investment officer at Massachusetts-based Commonwealth Financial Network.

McMillan's analysis is very similar to mine.  For a long time I have been warning that valuations would need to decline by at least 40 or 50 percent just to get back to the long-term averages.

And stock valuations always return to the long-term averages eventually.  Only this time the bubble has been artificially inflated so greatly that a return to the long-term averages will be absolutely catastrophic for our system.

Meanwhile, trouble signs for the real economy continue to erupt.  It appears that Toys R Us is on the brink of bankruptcy...

Toys R Us has hired restructuring lawyers at Kirkland & Ellis to help address looming $400 million in debt due in 2018, CNBC had previously reported, noting that bankruptcy was one potential outcome.

Kirkland declined to comment.

Earlier Monday, Reorg Research, a news service focused on bankruptcy and distressed debt, reported Toys R Us could file for bankruptcy as soon as Monday.

This is yet another sign that 2017 is going to be the worst year for retail store closings in U.S. history.  I don't know how anyone can look at what is happening to the retail industry (or the auto industry for that matter) and argue that the U.S. economy is in good shape.
But most Americans seem to base their opinions on how the economy is doing by how well the stock market is performing, and thanks to relentless central bank intervention, stock prices have just kept going up and up and up.

In so many ways, what we are watching today is a replay of the dotcom bubble of the late 1990s, and this is something that McMillan also commented on during his discussion with CNBC...

Part of McMillan's thesis is rooted in his belief that the lofty levels of the so-called FANG stocks -- Facebook, Amazon, Netflix and Google-parent Alphabet -- seem reminiscent of the dot-com bubble in the late 1990s.

"I've been saying for about the past year, this year looks a lot like 1999 to me," McMillan said on "Squawk Box." "If you look at the underlying economics [and] if look at the stock market, the similarities are remarkable."

I am amazed that so many big names continue to issue extremely ominous warnings about the financial markets, and yet most Americans seem completely unconcerned.

It is almost as if 2008 never happened.  None of our long-term problems were fixed after that crisis, and the current bubble that we are facing is far larger than the bubble that burst back then.

I don't know why more people can't see these things.  It has gotten to a point where "even Goldman Sachs is getting worried"...

The stock market bubble is now so massive that even Goldman Sachs is getting worried.

Let's be clear here: Wall Street does best and makes the most money when stocks are roaring higher. So in order for a major Wall Street firm like Goldman to start openly worrying about whether or not the markets are going to crash, there has to be truly MASSIVE trouble brewing.

On that note, Goldman's Bear Market indicator just hit levels that triggered JUST BEFORE THE LAST TWO MARKET CRASHES.
When things fall apart this time, it is going to be even worse than what we went through in 2008.  In the aftermath, we are going to need people that understand that we need to fundamentally redesign how our system works, and that is something that I hope to help with.  

We cannot base our financial system on a pyramid of debt, and we cannot allow Wall Street to operate like a giant casino.  Our entire economy has essentially become a colossal Ponzi scheme, and it is inevitable that it is going to come horribly crashing down at some point.

But for now, the blind continue to lead the blind, and most Americans are not going to wake up until we have gone over the edge.

Israel Prepared To 'Neutralize' Hezbollah With 'Overwhelming' Force In Next war

Israel Prepared To 'Neutralize' Hezbollah With 'Overwhelming' Force In Next war

News Image By Adam Abrams/JNS.org September 19, 2017 Share this article:

Despite the raging civil war to Israel's north and east in Syria, the Jewish state's northern border has remained precariously quiet over the last decade. No stranger to looming threats, Israeli officials are planning and ready for several worst-case scenarios in the north as Iran and its terror proxy Hezbollah continue to forge their stranglehold on the region.

In a possible war scenario with Hezbollah, the Israeli military can launch a "massive and overwhelming" operation that would effectively "neutralize" a significant part of the Lebanese terror organization's military capability, Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus, the head of the International Media Branch for the IDF Spokesperson's Unit, told JNS.org.

The IDF's operation would be based on "very accurate intelligence" collected "relentlessly" and "would minimize to the greatest extent possible, harm to non-combatants.... by using the most precise guided munitions that strike only at the legitimate military targets," Conricus said.

Striking only Hezbollah targets without collateral damage will be a challenging military feat because Hezbollah is deliberately "deployed in order to maximize collateral damage" to civilians, he added. 
One-third of the homes in southern Lebanon's 130 villages are known to house military components belonging to Hezbollah.

"Hezbollah's strategic choice of the battlefield, embedding its military assets in Shiite villages and towns, has put the majority of the Shiite population in Lebanon in harm's way, using it as human shields...." Brigadier general (Res.) Assaf Orion, a senior research fellow at Israel's Institute for National Security Studies (INSS), told JNS.org.

Defeating the terror group would likely involve "significant IDF ground incursions into Lebanon as well as taking out Hezbollah rocket positions located in high-density population areas," in hospitals, schools and apartment buildings, Dr. Jonathan Schanzer, senior vice president of research at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies think tank, told JNS.org.

In a future conflict, one could expect "significant damage to Israel," Orion said, but simultaneously "a devastating and unprecedented destruction in Lebanon, including a significant victory against Hezbollah's military forces and destruction of most infrastructure enabling its war fighting capacity."

Largest drill in decades

Due to Hezbollah's deep entrenchment within civilian infrastructure, the IDF has narrow windows of opportunity to engage "legitimate military targets," Conricus said.

However, the IDF is prepared for this scenario and recently completed its largest drill in two decades in Israel's northern region, simulating cross-border Hezbollah attacks on Israeli towns in which the terror group aims to commit massacres and take hostages.
The exercise was planned over a year and half in advance and tens of thousands of soldiers from all branches of the IDF participated.

During the initial stage of the drill, soldiers simulated rooting out Hezbollah terrorists from Israeli towns and defending the Jewish state's sovereignty. The drill's second stage simulated "decisive maneuver warfare" into the depths of Hezbollah's territory, Conricus said.

The exercise sought to enhance "coordination and synchronization" between the IDF's ground forces, air force, navy, intelligence and cyber units, and shorten "the intelligence cycle" from when a "target is identified to any type of munition meeting that target," he added.

Hezbollah's new capabilities and the coming two-front war

The IDF has acknowledged that since the 2006 Second Lebanon War, Hezbollah has matured from a guerilla organization to a fighting force equipped with heavy artillery, high-precision missiles and drones. The terror group also receives about $800 million a year in funding from Iran. 

A third of Hezbollah's forces are currently entrenched in Syria's ongoing civil war -- becoming battle-hardened, but simultaneously overstretched, losing some 2,000 fighters in the conflict.

Hezbollah and Iran have established weapons factories in Lebanon that can produce powerful missiles and, according to the IDF official, "more than 120,000 rocket launchers and rockets" are positioned in southern Lebanon, "in clear violation of U.N. Security Council Resolution 1701."

Iran and Hezbollah are also constructing permanent military facilities in southern Syria to establish a land bridge stretching from Tehran to Beirut along Israel's northern border.
According to Schanzer, this indicates the next war with Hezbollah "would likely be a two-front battle in Lebanon and Syria," which could also include other Iranian terror proxies in the region.

The IDF official confirmed, "it is definitely possible and plausible" that the Israeli military will be required to fight on more than one front, which the military is prepared for.

Intimate intelligence and advanced technology

Using its "networked intelligence," the IDF is prepared to implement "a massive precision strike.... on a scale which far exceeds the assessed growth in Hezbollah's military [capability]," Orion said.

Since 2006, Hezbollah has occasionally been given a glimpse of the "quality, scope and intimacy" of Israeli intelligence collected against it, the IDF official said, which has created a deterrence and quiet for the past 11 years.

A recent purported Israeli airstrike against a Syrian chemical weapons facility Sept. 7, which occurred during the massive IDF exercise, may have served as one such glimpse into Israel's intelligence capability directed against the terror group and its allies.

Israel is "far better prepared for the next war with Hezbollah" than it was in the 2006, Schanzer said. "We see now the appearance of stealth tank technology, the preparation for ground warfare and the possibility of tunnels into Israel... as well as the preparation for mass volleys of rockets launched by Hezbollah into Israel."

The Israeli Air Force has also acquired several new state-of-the-art F-35 "Adir" stealth fighter jets, and in recent weeks the military unveiled multiple revolutionary defense technologies that will soon be added to its arsenal.

Top 5 Insights From US War On Terror

Top 5 Insights From US War On Terror

News Image By Clarion Project September 20, 2017 Share this article:

The Bipartisan Policy Research Center has just released a new report assessing the impact of the war on terror. Entitled Defeating Terrorists, Not Terrorism: An Assessment of U.S. Counterterrorism Policy From 9/11 to ISIS, it looks at successes, failures and what we've learned in the 16 years since 9/11. 

Authored by a group of high-level policymakers from across the political spectrum, it outlines how a military solution is not enough and an ideological component is necessary for victory.

It was put together by their task force on terrorism and ideology and chaired by Governor Thomas H. Keane, former chair of the 9/11 Commission, and Representative Lee Hamilton, former vice chair of the 9/11 Commission.
Here are the top five takeaways:

1.Jihadis are recruiting as fast as the U.S. military can kill them. The report says "despite estimates that U.S. forces have killed at least 60,000 ISIS fighters, the U.S. government believes the group has as almost as many members now (15,000, according to the State Department) as it did in 2014 (20,000, according to the CIA)." 

It's not just ISIS either, al-Qaeda and other jihadist groups have been heavily recruiting despite counter-terror successes.

2. The U.S. has done serious damage to international terror networks. "Prodigious efforts by intelligence agencies, law enforcement, and the military have prevented another mass-casualty attack on U.S. soil," the report notes. 
"American forces have found and killed tens of thousands of terrorists abroad. The combined efforts of the U.S. government have degraded terrorist leadership, disrupted terrorist financing, and thwarted hundreds of terrorist plots."

3.Terror attacks are still increasing. "It is impossible to conclude that the enemy has been defeated. Rather, the threat of terrorism has metastasized," the report says. "Last year, some 25,000 people died in roughly 11,000 terrorist attacks in 104 countries. 

That is over three times as many deaths and five times as many attacks (7,000 and 2,000, respectively) as were recorded in 2001."

4.The Enemy Will Continue to Evolve. "Five years from now, new terrorist organizations will emerge, remnants of the earlier jihadi organizations will linger, and the extremists will adapt. Indeed, jihadist thinking has never been static," the report states. 

"Groups like al Qaeda and the Islamic State are fanatically committed to their worldview, but they have shown a remarkable ability to adapt their tactics to the circumstances in which they find themselves. As ISIS's terrestrial caliphate collapses, jihadist thinking will likely evolve in response."
5.To defeat terror the U.S. needs a holistic approach that strikes at the root of extremism. "Islamism's belief in the need for a revolutionary transformation of the modern political world, from an order based on individual liberty and composed of nation states to a totalitarian and transnational autocracy, is the fundamental challenge posed by terrorism," the report says. "The United States must confront this ideology in all its forms."

Victory, the authors state, is contingent on eradicating the ideology. "The generational struggle against Islamist terrorism will come to an end only when the ambitions that motivate groups such as al Qaeda and the Islamic State return to the obscurity they richly deserve. 

To speed that process, the United States will have to support the conditions and values that counteract and undermine Islamism's appeal: governance, institutions, civil society, citizenship, pluralism, tolerance, and a strong separation between public and private spheres."

The Next Manhattan Project And The New World Order

The Next Manhattan Project And The New World Order

News Image By Britt Gillette/EndTimesBibleProphecy September 20, 2017 Share this article:

On September 1, 2017, Vladimir Putin addressed a group of students in Yaroslavl, Russia. Speaking of the future, Putin said the development of artificial intelligence (AI) presents "colossal opportunities and threats that are difficult to predict now" and "the one who becomes the leader in this sphere will be the ruler of the world."

That's quite a statement coming from the leader of one of the world's greatest powers. But regardless of whether or not you agree, this is a major story. In fact, it should be one of the biggest headline stories in years. 

Why do I say that? Because Vladimir Putin, undisputed leader of Russia, a man who controls 7,000 nuclear warheads, made a public admission overlooked by almost every media outlet in the world. 
I have to assume they missed it, otherwise Putin's statement would have been the top headline all over the world. Why? Because Vladimir Putin said mutual assured destruction won't last forever. 

The End of Mutual Assured Destruction (MAD)

Since 1949, mutual assured destruction (MAD) has been the linchpin of international peace. Fear of total destruction, the idea no one can win a war between two nuclear powers, is all that's kept us from World War III. But all that is about to change, and Vladimir Putin knows it. 

New technologies will one day render MAD obsolete. Artificial intelligence, molecular manufacturing, quantum computers, new missile defense systems, and other technologies will radically alter the balance of power. 

What if a nation can disable enemy missiles before they're launched? Or, even if they are launched, what if they can shoot down those missiles before they reach their target? New technologies will make both scenarios possible.

Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have given the world a glimpse of unmanned drone technology. What happens as those drones become smaller and more powerful? 

What happens when swarms of drones the size of bees or mosquitoes attack a conventional army? What if they attack nuclear warheads? What if swarms of tiny submarines hunt down and disable nuclear submarines? New technologies will make these scenarios possible as well.

Even worse, numerous other threats could crop up, threats we have yet to imagine. As Putin says, artificial intelligence and its associated technologies will present "colossal opportunities and threats that are difficult to predict now." 
This inherent uncertainty will further erode the effectiveness of MAD. For instance, what happens if militaries throughout the world decide to place critical battlefield decisions in the hands of artificial intelligence? Could a non-human intelligence spark a global war? 

It might. And even if it doesn't, the idea it could will impact the decisions world leaders make.

What Does This Mean?

Aside from his admission MAD will lose its effectiveness in the near future, Putin made another equally important admission. He said the nation leading this technological revolution "will rule the world." This wasn't an offhand remark. It was a public acknowledgement of what many people have known for a long time.

The nation that first develops artificial intelligence and molecular manufacturing will have an enormous military advantage over the rest of the world. MAD will be obsolete, and the leading nation will have superior weapons. This nation will have two choices. It can sit on its advantage until other nations catch up. 

Or it can use its advantage to the conquer other nations. It will choose the second option. How can I be so sure? Because the first option will result in an unstable arms race that will probably lead to worldwide annihilation. Remember, MAD will no longer be effective. And post-MAD weapons will be even more powerful than nuclear weapons.
So it's inevitable the leading nation will use its advantage to set up a global empire. Vladimir Putin knows this. That's why he said, "the one who becomes the leader in this sphere will be the ruler of the world." I'm sure Putin imagines he'll win the race and establish a world empire for himself. But regardless of who wins, the leading nation will draw the same conclusion - global government is the only available course of action.

What the Bible Says

Those who study bible prophecy have long known what the Bible predicts for the end times. The Bible says a global empire will exist, one that rules every person on earth (Revelation 13:7). This empire will crush and devour the whole world (Daniel 7:23). And when it does, it will control almost every aspect of human life - to the point of determining "who can buy and who can sell" (Revelation 13:17).

According to Vladimir Putin, the leader in artificial intelligence will set up this global empire. He knows it. And other world leaders know it. Have no doubt about it, this was a public admission of an ongoing race. It's a race among world governments. 

A race to develop new post-MAD technologies. And these technologies include more than artificial intelligence. They include molecular manufacturing, quantum computers, and other technologies most people are unaware of. In this race, there's no silver medal. The second place nations get nothing. The first place nation gets the whole world. That's quite a prize. So have no doubt, the race is on.

The end result will be a global empire (Revelation 13:7) and a worldwide police state with unprecedented power (Revelation 13:17). It's just one more sign of the times. Jesus is coming!

High Ranking CIA Agent Blows Whistle On The Deep State And Shadow Government

High Ranking CIA Agent Blows Whistle On The Deep State And Shadow Government

By Aaron Kesel
A CIA whistleblower, Kevin Shipp, has emerged from the wolves den to expose the deep state and the shadow government which he calls two entirely separate entities.
“The shadow government controls the deep state and manipulates our elected government behind the scenes,” Shipp warned in a recent talk at a Geoengineeringwatch.org conference.
Shipp had a series of slides explaining how the deep state and shadow government functions as well as the horrific crimes they are committing against U.S. citizens.
Some of the revelations the former CIA anti-terrorism counter intelligence officer revealed included that “Google Earth was set up through the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency and InQtel.” Indeed he is correct, the CIA and NGA owned the company Google acquired, Keyhole Inc., paying an undisclosed sum for the company to turn its tech into what we now know as Google Earth. Another curious investor in Keyhole Inc. was none other than the venture capital firm In-Q-Tel run by the CIA according to a press release at the time.
Shipp also disclosed that the agency known as the Joint Special Ops Command (JSOC) is the “president’s secret army” which he can use for secret assassinations, overturning governments and things the American people don’t know about.
FBI warrantless searches violate the Fourth Amendment with national security letters, which Shipp noted enables them to walk into your employer’s office and demand all your financial records and if he or she says anything about them being there they can put your supervisor in jail or drop a case against themselves using the “State’s Secret Privilege law.”
“The top of the shadow government is the National Security Agency and the Central Intelligence Agency,” Shipp said.
Shipp expressed that the CIA was created through the Council on Foreign relations with no congressional approval, and historically the CFR is also tied into the mainstream media (MSM.) He elaborated that the CIA was the “central node” of the shadow government and controlled all of other 16 intelligence agencies despite the existence of the DNI. The agency also controls defense and intelligence contractors, can manipulate the president and political decisions, has the power to start wars, torture, initiate coups, and commit false flag attacks he said.
As Shipp stated, the CIA was created through executive order by then President Harry Truman by the signing of the National Security Act of 1947.
According to Shipp, the deep state is comprised of the military industrial complex, intelligence contractors, defense contractors, MIC lobbyist, Wall St (offshore accounts), Federal Reserve, IMF/World Bank, Treasury, Foreign lobbyists, and Central Banks.
In the shocking, explosive presentation, Shipp went on to express that there are “over 10,000 secret sites in the U.S.” that formed after 9/11. There are “1,291 secret government agencies, 1,931 large private corporations and over 4,800,000 Americans that he knows of who have a secrecy clearance, and 854,000 who have Top Secret clearance, explaining they signed their lives away bound by an agreement.
He also detailed how Congress is owned by the Military Industrial Complex through the Congressional Armed Services Committee (48 senior members of Congress) giving those members money in return for a vote on the spending bill for the military and intelligence budget.
He even touched on what he called the “secret intelligence industrial complex,” which he called the center of the shadow government including the CIA, NSA, NRO, and NGA.
Shipp further stated that around the “secret intelligence industrial complex” you have the big five conglomerate of intelligence contractors – Leidos Holdings, CSRA, CACI, SAIC, and Booz Allen Hamilton. He noted that the work they do is “top secret and unreported.”
The whistleblower remarked that these intelligence contractors are accountable to no one including Congress, echoing the words of Senator Daniel Inouye when he himself blew the whistle on the shadow government during the Iran-Contra hearings in 1987.
At the time Inouye expressed that the “shadow government had its own funding mechanism, shadowy Navy, and Air Force freedom to pursue its own goals free from all checks and balances and free from the law itself.”
Shipp further added that the shadow government and elected government were in the midst of a visible cold war.
So who is Shipp and is he credible as a whistleblower, does he have credentials for the CIA? Aim.org wrote:
Shipp held several high-level positions in the CIA. He was assigned as a protective agent for the Director of Central Intelligence, a counterintelligence investigator, a Counter Terrorism Center officer, a team leader protecting sensitive CIA assets from assassination, a manager of high-risk protective operations, a lead instructor for members of allied governments, an internal staff security investigator, and a polygraph examiner. He was tasked with protecting the CIA from foreign agent penetration and the chief of training for the CIA federal police force.  Mr. Shipp functioned as program manager for the Department of State, Diplomatic Security, and Anti Terrorism Assistance global police training program.  He is the recipient of two CIA Meritorious Unit Citations, three Exceptional Performance Awards and a Medallion for overseas covert operations.  He is the author of From the Company of Shadows–CIA Operations and the War on Terrorism.
Shipp noted he was working with former NSA whistleblower William Binney but didn’t state what the two were working on together. Shipp is highly credible and may just be the highest level whistleblower. This leak is huge. He has been previously mentioned in the New York Times for blowing the whistle on the mistreatment of him and his family when they were put in a mold-contaminated home. He is also mentioned in a WikiLeaks cable during the GiFiles that I was able to dig up. Is this the beginning of whistleblowers coming forward to end the shadow government and deep state? You can watch Shipp’s full explosive presentation below.

New Priorities and Challenges for America's Pacific Military Command

New Priorities and Challenges for America's Pacific Military Command

HONOLULU (Sept. 15, 2017) -- The United States Pacific Command, or PACOM, controls the strongest military force in the Asia Pacific region, making it perhaps the region’s most important organization. Based in Hawai‘i, PACOM describes its mission as defending US interests in a geographic area that encompasses more than half of the earth’s surface and population. Yet few Americans and even fewer among America’s allies have heard of PACOM, let alone understand what it does. Recently, the East-West Center and Keio University’s Global Research Institute hosted a symposium that brought together several experts to discuss PACOM’s role in the region and the challenges that PACOM confronts today.

One of these challenges is that the Asia Pacific region faces complex security threats, although no active warfare. Keynote speaker R.J. “Zap” Zlatoper, a retired US Navy admiral and former PACOM commander, said that the command’s top three priorities today are: 1) China’s military buildup and increasing aggression in the East and South China Sea; 2) North Korea’s growing nuclear capacity combined with an inexperienced leader and severe internal social and economic strains; and 3) international terrorist movements affecting several US allies. Other priorities, he said, include international crime, cyber warfare, the threat of a regional or global pandemic, natural disasters, insurgency movements, the conflict between India and Pakistan, and increasing intrusions by Russia.

But as East-West Center Senior Fellow Denny Roy pointed out, PACOM must compete for resources with other US regional commands that may claim higher priority. Such priorities include ongoing combat operations in the Middle East, the dangers posed to Europe by Putin’s Russia and the relative importance of stronger US military partners outside of the Asia Pacific.

Roy asserted that another challenge for PACOM is to deter adversaries and reassure friendly states in a “post-hegemonic” era, when the US is still powerful but no longer has complete military dominance in the region. In the recent past, allies might have construed a measured US response to provocation—Chinese intrusions in the South China Sea, for example—as appropriate and wise, he said. Today, by contrast, friendly governments might interpret US restraint as unwillingness to stand up to a stronger China. “Today the United States cannot stop aggression in the region without assuming some degree of risk,” said Roy, “and our reluctance to take on risk can weaken confidence among our allies that America is fully committed to paying the price necessary to maintain regional security.”

American allies may also be frustrated by changes in leadership at PACOM, Roy said. Commanders tend to change every two or three years, and each comes with a somewhat different approach to security issues in the region. Sometimes these variations are dramatic. In particular, the previous few PACOM commanders have swung back and forth between emphasizing engagement or confrontation with China.

These shifts in views are important, said Roy, because “the PACOM commander is a diplomat as well as a manager and strategist. A public statement by a PACOM commander can affect the confidence of allies or adversaries toward US power, the security policy of foreign governments and even stock markets.”

Roy also commented on the inherent structural tensions between PACOM and the Pentagon, since PACOM commanders take orders from the Secretary of Defense, and priorities at the two levels of government can be quite different. “Pentagon decision-making is based on a global outlook and the occasional need to make difficult trade-offs,” according to Roy. “The Pentagon is deeply involved in US domestic political activities such as discussions with members of Congress, answering inquiries from citizen groups and the media, and managing the US defense budget.” Whereas PACOM, by definition, “is focused strictly on maintaining military security in the Asia Pacific region.”

Roy and others at the meeting commented on PACOM’s complex relationships with Japan, South Korea and other allies in the region. Both PACOM and the Pentagon often urge US security partners to take a broader view of their own security and make a stronger contribution to the larger regional order. This is often a difficult sell, they said. Given current tensions on the Korean Peninsula, for example, it is understandable that the South Koreans are focused exclusively on defending themselves. And because of the history of Japanese colonization, they are especially sensitive to the possibility that any security cooperation with Japan might bring Japanese troops onto Korean soil.

In Japan, US military bases on Okinawa spark local resentment, and persistent economic stagnation brings opposition to any significant increase in defense spending. Referring to Japan’s aging population, Brad Glosserman, Executive Director of the Center for Strategic and International Studies-affiliated Pacific Forum, suggested that the Japanese government is facing “a trade-off between guns vs. wheelchairs.” Roy added that certain diplomatic activities by PACOM can help overcome anti-militarism among the Japanese population. “After PACOM personnel, ships and aircraft carried out Operation Tomodachi to assist Japanese affected by the Tohoku triple disaster of 2011, opinion polls showed a marked increase in public support for Japan’s alliance with the United States,” Roy said.

There is broad interest among strategists in Japan, South Korea and the US in developing a trilateral alliance, several speakers noted. On a practical level, cooperative activities are working well, according to Junya Nishino, Professor at Japan’s Keio University, “but the Japanese and Korean governments must pay attention to their domestic audiences.”

Roy pointed out that “any possible alliance faces an inherent asymmetry of risk.” He postulated a conflict over two possible war plans: “Option A might promise greater and quicker assistance to South Korea but entail a higher expected risk that North Korea might fire a missile at Japan. Option B might be safer for Japan but less protective of South Korea. Close consultation could help ameliorate this kind of problem, but it cannot be completely eliminated because American, South Korean and Japanese interests will never be perfectly aligned.”

In addition to managing complex relationships with American allies, PACOM needs to determine how best to stand up to China’s growing challenge to US dominance in the region, the speakers concluded. Rather than direct military confrontation, the US must respond to assertiveness in the “grey zone”—from construction of artificial islands in the South China Sea to a dramatic expansion of activities in Pacific Island nations.

Japan Institute of International Affairs Senior Research Fellow Tetsuo Kotani asked, “Do Americans have the political will to confront China? The Chinese are betting that they don’t.” And America’s allies in the region are watching closely.

Scientist Finally Confirms Weather Modification: A Comprehensive Database on Chemtrails and Weather Modification Already Exists

By Catherine J. Frompovich
Too many humans in the Northern Hemisphere have been horribly affected by recent mega-hurricanes—“Harvey,” Texas; “Irma,” Caribbean Islands, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Florida—which may not be “Nature’s wrath,” but something even more sinister with several more on the way! However, there are skeptics, who can’t believe what is happening can have inputs from weather technologies, so exaggerated in capabilities they just may result in bankrupting governments, economies and financial systems, and severely limiting resources like food, water, and shelter for months!
This author has had some very intelligent people contact her saying they think weather geoengineering is a “conspiracy theory” or “hoax,” so she asked her Editor to republish the article she wrote in January of 2015, which you will find in full below the first video.
Something just may ring a bell now. How much more devastation do we want to live through, not only here, but globally?
Here’s a major scientist on CBS TV News telling us what’s been going on.

Resource: Top Scientist Admits on Live TV: Recent Hurricanes are Man-Made (Sept. 10, 2017)

The Washington Post article of January 22, 2015 titled “How a group of conspiracy theorists could derail the debate over climate policy” prompted this response to what either the Post’s editors or article author apparently overlooked or did not choose to do, in my journalistic opinion—publish facts!
Over the years, The Washington Post acquired numerous awards for excellent investigative journalism, etc., including the prestigious Pulitzer Prize several times, the last being in 2014. One would imagine—at least this writer’s journalistic opinion—that extensive and accurate research would be the ground floor for factual, open-source, non-pejorative, non-ad hominem reporting and journalism.
When journalist Puneet Kollipara postulates, “Meet the “chemtrails” crowd, who posit that governments, scientists and other institutions are using airplanes’ “chemtrails” — basically contrails that are allegedly laced with chemicals — to alter the climate, create extreme weather, poison people, or even control our minds,” and “In short, chemtrails itself is a conspiracy theory,” someone needs to point out that The Washington Post team should have done their homework more diligently, as there are hundreds of federal government agency reports and, in particular, U.S. Patents of record, for managing weather systems. Many are listed below in the Weather Geoengineering / Chemtrail Database generated by this writer.
However, I think maybe I may be inclined to agree with Kollipara that chemtrails just may be a conspiracy—a real ‘true’ conspiracy to keep what’s going on day and night – and which darkens our skies (less sunlight hits earth now), plus precipitates all kinds of toxic crap falling onto earth—to keep the public from knowing what’s actually going on above our heads.
For decades weather control, AKA weather geoengineering, has been going on—it’s a given that patents verify. However, a complacent media, press, TV, probably some ‘politicos’ from previous administrations, select bureaucrats in government, government agencies per se, namely: US Air Force and Navy, researchers, and specialty contractors who build and carry out systems to fulfill the agenda—ALL have kept silent and definitely either apparently conspired or colluded to agree to keep silent—or else. Where are the whistleblowers? Could some wannabe whistleblowers be dead?
Why hasn’t any media outlet, investigative journalist or newspaper, the U.S. Congress or some foreign investigator/researcher questioned the sky trails during the last couple decades? Furthermore, why—whenever something crops up about chemtrails—is it immediately scandalized as ‘conspiracy’, rather than addressed with scientific facts and reported as news?
Below is a database of legal documentation (U.S. Patents) that evidences weather geoengineering is real. Furthermore, many patents cannot be employed or used unless there is aerial spraying.
First, we need to study two weather maps, which apparently show that there really is a split weather pattern in the continental USA.
“Two Pictures Worth More Than a Thousand Words!”
“For any that are wondering how 2015 is shaping up for the Eastern US, the same scenario we saw in 2014 is being engineered all over again. The West fries with temperatures 20 degrees or more above normal with almost no rain as the Eastern US gets the toxic engineered cool-downs,” per Dane Wigington at GeoengineeringWatch.org, Jan. 24, 2015
Same source as above
The above global-climate-temperature map readily illustrates how the eastern parts of the USA and the North American continent apparently have become targeted areas for cold/rain/ice/snow weather geoengineering. Moreover, it supports the first map and the divide seen between the hot/dry west and the cold/wet east. That weather system probably can be accomplished only with aerial spraying of aerosolized chemicals and toxic elements, since natural weather patterns apparently don’t have ‘split personalities’. Documents from government and other mainstream resources, plus the investigative alternate press, confirm chemtrail activity, which really is weather geoengineering. Please see the database below.

An Extensive List of Patents on weather modification 1920 to Oct 5 2012
http://www.geoengineeringwatch.org/links-to-geoengineering-patents/
The most questionable of any technologies probably involved in weather geoengineering, which is couched as “military assets,” is what’s known as HAARP. It has/had two components: 1) the Tesla Weapon Platform SBX-1 sea-based, and 2) the land-base in SW Alaska, which supposedly closed in May 2013. However, there’s some talk that the land-based HAARP may have been replaced with satellite technology, so that’s why the Alaska HAARP ‘campus’ (photo below) was closed. Can anyone verify that there’s a purported satellite replacement for the Gakona, Alaska, site?

Here’s a Public Notice advertisement that appeared in some newspaper [probably in the State of Oregon] that gave official notice of what was going to happen, i.e., Water Development Corporation had a license (No. 54 issued by the State of Oregon) “to engage in operations to modify natural precipitation by artificial means, for and on behalf of Morrow County Weather Research Association, located at Echo, Oregon” for the period Oct. 1, 1965 to Oct. 31, 1966. [Emphasis added]

Lastly, there’s this document wherein apparent weather strategies seem to come into play.
NASA’s FUTURE STRATEGIC ISSUES/FUTURE WARFARE [Circa 2025]‘The Bots, Borgs, & Humans Welcome You to 2025 A.D.’
Dennis M. Bushnell, Chief Scientist NASA Langley Research Center
Originally published online by NASA prior to 9-11-01 but since removed.
The person who emailed it said, “Our side preserved it in cyberspace” at https://fedgeno.com/documents/future-strategic-issues-and-warfare.pdf
The above is what appears to be a PowerPoint presentation.
Page 43 talks about Micro Dust Weaponry for Lungs [very scary stuff. Will that be aerosolized and sprayed from aircraft too?]
On page 41 we find this: Sensor Swarms: Smart dust; nanotags everywhere/everything for ID and status Information; Co-opted insects.
Page 82 has some very disconcerting stuff: Unconventional Nuc [Nuke] Delivery including tidal waves and earthquakes [Very scary stuff on this page. Are they talking about creating tidal waves and earthquakes? Isn’t that ‘weather’ related? Has either ever been employed?]
But, page 55 “What is Apparently “Legal” [and they can do without oversight. Will weather geoengineering fall into that category and be considered “An act of God?” Is that why they deny chemtrail existence or weather geoengineering, and grossly claim it the work of conspiracy theorists? Do the real weather controllers want taxpayers to believe that no one has been able to control the weather, a most likely and logical conclusion? However, check out this:
US Air Force / Weather as a Force Multiplier: Owning the Weather in 2025
http://csat.au.af.mil/2025/volume3/vol3ch15.pdf [a US Air Force document] ]
There’s even a textbook for USA children that teaches about creating an atmosphere sunscreen using jet planes and fuel to add particles to the atmosphere. Chemtrails by another name?
Science I: Essential Interaction
http://www.chemtrails911.com/docs/Centre%20Pointe%20Learning,%20Inc.htm“In the Level 1 Science book, “Essential Interactions” by Centre Point Learning, Inc., a photo of a jet is titled “Particle Air” and is followed with: ‘Could we deliberately add patrticles [sic—s/b particles] to the atmosphere? Jet engines running on richer fuel would add particles to the atmosphere to create a sunscreen’.”  http://www.chemtrails911.com/science_book.htm
A logical question should be: What’s being added to jet jet fuel to make it richer? See the list of what’s been analyzed from sprays and appears on the “Stop Spraying California!” website http://www.stopsprayingcalifornia.com/What_are_they_Spraying.php.
With all the above documentation, which represents not even one-tenth of what’s probably out there, who do you think are the conspiracy theorists?
