Nov 6, 2017 the strong correlation between the Dow and who wins the election!

In this article that appeared in www.miningfeeds.com the author links the performance of the DOW ^DJI with who wins the election. He gives the results since 1888 till present and shows the probability that the DOW did influence the election in a very high percent of the cases studied.

This election offers two very distinct persons and parties hoping to win and take the Nation in the path of their vision.

The chart indicates a strong possibility for a Republican Trump win.

On a side note Friday Nov 4 with about 15 minutes to go for the market to close I asked the Lord to close the market at 17,888. I did this asking as 888 is the Greek Gematria number of Jesus as many of you already know. I left the monitor and came back one hour latter and low and behold the market closed at 17,888.28. Jesus is the one really moving the events here!

Stocks Really Sway Elections

With 2016’s contentious US presidential election just days away now, traders are still trying to game the outcome of this tightening race. With a Hillary Clinton victory long priced in, the mounting odds Donald Trump will prevail have big implications for major markets. One critical place traders should look for clues to how Americans will vote is the stock markets. Recent stock performance really sways election results.

This assertion certainly sounds dubious. When Americans are asked what the most-important issues for determining their votes are, the stock markets wouldn’t even make the list. But interestingly a recent Pew Research poll found that the economy was the number-one issue in this election. 90% of Trump supporters, 80% of Clinton supporters, and 84% of all registered voters rated the economy at the very top.

That beat out terrorism as very important to 80% of all voters, foreign policy at 75%, health care at 74%, gun policy at 72%, and immigration at 70%. Nothing is more important to Americans than the economy. The state of it greatly affects our abilities to earn healthy incomes to support our families, our states of well-being, and our hopes for higher standards of living in the future. Americans have long voted with their wallets.

Naturally our perceptions of the state of the economy are heavily colored by our own experiences. If we are thriving and earning a good living, we tend to believe the overall US economy is strong because our personal economy is strong. But if we are struggling to make ends meet, our own financial challenges taint our perceptions of the general US economy. We extrapolate our own fortunes to a universal scale.

While professional traders have to follow major US economic data since it moves markets, it tends to be pretty technical and difficult for laymen to understand. It’s surprising how often headline economic data like jobs or gross domestic product implies one thing, but those very same reports’ internals suggest the exact opposite. An excellent example was last Friday’s highly-anticipated initial number on US Q3 GDP.

The headline read of +2.9% annualized growth easily beat the +2.5% expected, so the media trumpeted accelerating strength in the US economy. Yet the internals of that same report were very weak. Consumer spending, which accounts for over 2/3rds of all US economic activity, was cut in half from +4.3% in Q2 to just +2.1% in Q3. Fully 0.83% of that 2.9% GDP growth came from an anomalous surge in US soybean exports!
How can busy Americans just trying to live their lives expect to wade through these endless torrential data streams? The US economy is fantastically complex and interrelated with everything, and thus very challenging for anyone to understand. So Americans naturally look for a simple proxy to represent how the overall economy is faring. And not surprisingly that happens to be prevailing US stock-market levels.

To the great majority of Americans, the stock markets are the economy! Every evening the mainstream media reports briefly on whether the stock markets were up or down that day. When they have rallied, the media looks for good economic news to attribute it to like a headline-GDP beat. When stock markets sell off, any weak economic news du jour is blamed. Stock-market fortunes greatly influence economic perceptions.

Experienced traders know this gross oversimplification is misleading. Collective greed and fear moves stock markets, forcing them to overvalued or undervalued levels relative to the underlying economy. But whether using stock markets as a US-economy proxy is righteous or not is irrelevant, since perception becomes reality in people’s minds. This phenomenon makes stock markets really sway presidential elections.

The battle lines among the American electorate have long been drawn. About 40% of American voters will vote Republican no matter what, while a proportional opposing 40% will always vote Democrat. That leaves the remaining 20% of independents or swing voters to nearly always decide elections. And their collective opinions on who to support change based on their views of the US economy, and thus stock markets.

Unlike the hardcore bases of the two major political parties who knew they were going to vote for their own party’s candidate forever, independent voters often don’t make up their minds until the final weeks of a presidential race. As they tend to vote with their wallets, that makes their choices very susceptible to their latest perceptions of the US economy. And those are utterly dominated by recent stock-market fortunes.

There’s been much research on this fascinating phenomenon of stock-market action leading into US presidential elections helping decide them, with various methodologies used. But most I’ve seen are limited in scope, like only looking at the post-World-War-II period. So this week as politics dominate our collective mindshare, I decided to finally do my own deeper study on stock markets and presidential elections.

While the flagship broad-market S&P 500 is a vastly-superior stock index on every front, the venerable Dow Jones Industrial Average is probably way more important for elections. Since the mainstream media is still always reporting on stock markets in Dow terms, that’s the number most Americans follow. On top of that, the Dow’s history stretches all the way back to 1885 compared to just 1957 for the S&P 500.

So the DJIA, or Dow 30, has continuity running all the way back to the 1888 US presidential election! That grants us the greatest-possible sample size for investigating the apparent impact on voters’ choices from leading-in stock-market performance. Remember that US presidential elections are always held on the Tuesday immediately after the first Monday in November. That fixes the range at November 2nd to 8th.

I looked at leading-in stock-market performance per the Dow 30 in three separate ways. The first is how the Dow fared in the August, September, and October span leading into the early-November elections, or the final 3 calendar months. Next I cut out August and just considered the September-October span, the final 2 calendar months. Finally I looked at the precise 3 trading months running right up to election days.

The fascinating results are summarized in these tables. The first column shows the election year of the 32 US presidential elections since 1888. That’s our sample size. The next five columns show how each election played out. The incumbent political party controlling the presidency leading into each election is listed, followed by which party actually won. Next comes the election result for the incumbent party.

Then the winning president is listed color-coded for his party, along with the percentage of the electoral-college votes he received. The United States of America is thankfully a Constitutional representative republic ruled by laws, not a democracy where majority mob-rule reigns. When I started this research, I was wondering if bigger leading-in stock-market moves resulted in larger electoral-vote wins by presidents.

The last six columns show the various market performances in Dow terms for August, September, and October (ASO), September and October (SO), and the precise final 3 trading months leading right into election days (F3m). The rule is simple. If the stock markets rose in a given span and the incumbent party won the presidency, or stock markets fell and the incumbent party lost, then the rule worked in that election.

That’s the core crux of this thesis that leading-in stock-market action really sways presidential elections. If stock markets rally as independent voters are deciding how to cast their votes in the final pre-election weeks, then they feel better about the economy. So they vote for the incumbent party to maintain the status quo. If the economy seems to be improving as evidenced by stock markets, why change anything?

Conversely if the stock markets fall leading into elections these swing voters feel worse about the state of the economy. They fear their own personal economies will mirror that perceived downturn. Thus they decide to vote for a change of direction by supporting the challenging party’s bid for the presidency. So the incumbent party is kicked out of office. The hard data shows stocks do really sway US presidential elections!


Given the long 131-year history of the Dow Jones Industrial Average, these 32 US presidential elections since 1888 are the largest-possible sample size. And the results are very compelling. The incumbent party wins the US presidency when stock markets are up leading into elections, and loses it when stocks are down, the great majority of the time. The probabilities vary slightly by rule, but are all quite high.

If the Dow 30 rises in that calendar August, September, and October span leading into early-November elections, or falls, the incumbent party indeed appropriately wins or loses the presidency fully 75% of the time! Using the September-October span, that dips modestly to a 69% chance of success for this rule. And avoiding calendar months for the precise final 3 trading months leading into election days, 75% success is again seen.

This is extraordinary, amazing, and maybe even disturbing. Out of the entire history of major US stock indexes, their performances in the final months leading into elections effectively predict the results a whopping 3/4ths of the times! All that campaigning, the billions of dollars now spent, the endless media coverage and stress presidential campaigns fuel, might all be for naught. The stock markets apparently trump all!

While the party faithful do their thing, the independent voters in the middle who determine the results are voting with their wallets. Their perceptions of US economic strength are positive when stock markets are rising, so they vote for more of the same through the incumbent party. But when stock markets fall leading into elections, they start to worry about their own economic fortunes and vote to kick out the incumbents.

This is disturbing because it is ripe for manipulation. Modern successful presidential campaigns cost well over a billion dollars to run. If an exceptionally-shrewd hedge-fund manager was given that kind of money to explicitly manipulate stock indexes, it might be possible to pull off. By strategically buying or selling highly-leveraged S&P 500 index futures at key technical breakpoints, stock markets might be herded.

So could a future presidential campaign try to briefly push stock markets higher if it held the presidency as the incumbent party, or short them lower if it was the challenger party? Maybe. A billion dollars isn’t much money in stock-market terms, and wouldn’t move stock markets for long. But with exquisite timing of futures trades and their outsized impact, and a bit of luck in the economic-news cycle, it could move the needle.

Interestingly it does look like the magnitude of stock-market move indeed affects the size of presidential wins in electoral-vote terms. The two biggest electoral-vote victories in modern times were Bill Clinton’s 70% for his second term in 1996 and Barack Obama’s 68% for his first term in 2008. Bill Clinton was the incumbent, and the stock markets rocketed higher in the final months leading into that 1996 election.

Conversely in 2008 Barack Obama was the challenger, and highly controversial due to his socialist and even Marxist policy positions. But he won a decisive victory against John McCain largely because stock markets plummeted in their first full-on panic in a century leading into that election! The American voters were understandably terrified of the US economy spiraling into a depression, so they booted the incumbent party.

And if political historians looked into the times the leading-in stock-market fortunes failed to sway if not predict the presidential-election outcomes, many would have exceptional circumstances. In 1956 for example, the stock markets plunged heading into early November. Yet popular general and war hero Dwight Eisenhower obliterated Adlai Stevenson, a former Illinois governor who had no real political base.

And a bit later in 1968, Richard Nixon beat the stock-market-forecast odds to win a narrow victory over Hubert Humphrey. He was the sitting vice president under Lyndon Johnson, who was wildly unpopular over his Vietnam war and extensive race riots. Still, challenger Nixon only won in a year stock markets soared heading into that election because third-party candidate George Wallace bled away 8.6% of the electoral vote!

All this history is fascinating, but the real question today is what are the stock markets implying about the outcome of this Tuesday’s battle between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton? Trump is the challenger since the Democratic party is incumbent with Obama currently holding the presidency. History has shown Hillary Clinton has a 3/4ths chance of winning if stock markets rally in the final months leading in.

Unfortunately for the Democrats, that didn’t happen. The venerable Dow 30 actually fell a considerable and material 1.6% between the final trading days of July and October, and dropped a similar 1.4% in this year’s calendar September and October. And though the stock markets’ performance in the precise final 3 months leading into election day are not yet known, the Dow was way up at 18544 back at that start point.

As of this Wednesday, the data cutoff for this essay, the Dow 30 had fallen a major 3.1% since its close on August 5th exactly 3 months before election day. It’s hard to imagine such a big loss being made up in the final few trading days heading into the election, no matter what happened in this morning’s US monthly jobs report. The stock markets overwhelmingly and conclusively predict Donald Trump will win!

People like to argue that this election cycle is exceptionally wild, strange, and contentious. That may be true, but I’m skeptical. In doing the research for this essay, I studied every historical election where the stock-market rule failed. It is amazing how much social tumult there was, with serious issues ranging from wars to stock panics to depressions to political assassinations to racial unrest. 2016 feels tame in comparison.

While there has certainly been minor racial tension, this year has thankfully seen no wars, stock panics, depressions, or political assassinations. So odds are that 3/4ths historical chance that leading-in stock-market fortunes will sway this election’s outcome will hold true. The caveat is we’re only coming off all-time record stock-market highs. So maybe independents will feel like the US economy is thriving, and vote incumbent.

For weeks if not months, the financial markets have been overwhelmingly pricing in a Hillary Clinton victory on Tuesday. Polls have shown her with a commanding advantage, even though many of them are highly suspect for oversampling Democrats. Almost all the polls I’ve dug into survey Democrats on the order of 44% compared to 37% for Republicans, giving Clinton an automatic built-in lead of 7 points.

If she indeed wins as traders seem to expect, the markets aren’t likely to change much since they are already positioned for that. But if Donald Trump surprises and beats the perceived long odds to win, the markets are in for some serious repositioning trading. Provocatively we don’t even have to guess at what’s likely to happen, as a preview conveniently played out last Friday on some major poll-swinging news.

Around 1:30pm on Friday October 28th, the FBI director shocked the world by writing a letter to Congress saying the FBI found new Hillary Clinton e-mails it needs to examine for classified information. This was a huge surprise because this same FBI director had all but exonerated Clinton in that same investigation just a few months earlier. Traders were suddenly faced with surging odds of Trump actually winning!

So what happened? The lofty overvalued stock markets sold off instantly and sharply. While Trump’s lower taxes and less regulation should be very bullish for stocks over the long term, traders fear all the uncertainty a Trump Administration would bring. They think Clinton represents the Obama status quo, that nothing major will change. So a surprise Trump win Tuesday would likely unleash serious stock selling.

This can be gamed with put options in the flagship SPY SPDR S&P 500 ETF. If stock markets indeed drop on the uncertainty of a Trump win, or God forbid the far-worse uncertainty of a contested election, index puts are going to soar in value. Buying puts doesn’t seem particularly risky, as stock markets are very high and overdue for a major selloff anyway. So a Clinton win is still very unlikely to spark a major rally.

The other major market move last Friday on the FBI reopening its investigations into Hillary Clinton was gold surging. Gold tends to move counter to stock markets, so as they dropped it immediately caught a big safe-haven bid. Gold has just green lighted a major new upleg after it got hammered back in early October as futures stops were run. So traders gaming a Trump victory can also go long gold and its miners’ stocks.

The easiest way to get portfolio gold exposure is buying shares in or call options on the dominant GLD SPDR Gold Shares gold ETF. But gold’s gains will be amplified as always by the stocks of its miners, as their profits really leverage gold upside. Gold stocks conveniently happen to be screaming buys right now for other reasons, and a Trump win can be played with their leading GDX VanEck Vectors Gold Miners ETF.

While the major gold-stock ETFs will surge dramatically with gold if stock markets sell off materially for any reason, including a Trump win or contested election, their gains will be trounced by the best of the individual gold miners. A carefully-handpicked portfolio of elite individual gold and silver stocks with superior fundamentals will really amplify sector gains, dwarfing the performances of the gold-stock ETFs.

At Zeal we’ve spent literally tens of thousands of hours researching individual gold stocks and markets, so we can better decide what to trade and when. This has resulted in 851 stock trades recommended in real-time for our newsletter subscribers since 2001. Their average annualized realized gains including all losers are running way up at +24.1% as of the end of Q3! Why not put our expertise to work for you?

We’ve been super-aggressively adding gold-stock and silver-stock trades since that anomalous gold-stock plummet in early October. These great new trades are detailed in our popular weekly and monthly newsletters, and remain cheap and ripe to buy. Both newsletters draw on our vast experience, knowledge, wisdom, and ongoing research to explain what’s going on in the markets, why, and how to trade them with specific stocks. Subscribe today! For just $10 an issue, you can learn to think, trade, and thrive like a contrarian.

The bottom line is stock-market fortunes in the final few months leading into US presidential elections really sway their results. If stock markets rally into early-November voting, the incumbent party is likely to win since voters feel comfortable about the state of the economy. But if stock markets fall in that critical sentiment-shaping span, independent voters start worrying about the economy and kick out the incumbent party.

For a century and a quarter, this simple stock-market rule has had a 3/4ths chance of predicting how a presidential election will play out. And this year the materially-weak stock markets since mid-August argue strongly in favor of the incumbent party losing. That means the odds of a Trump victory are much higher than traders believe, creating the potential for big market swings if he wins and traders rush to reposition.

Sept 17, 2016 The true face behind the mask worn by Hillary Clinton.

In the coming November election the true choice is starkly seen as remain an integral and independent nation by electing Trump or succumb independence and integrate into a one world government by voting for H Clinton.

The economy problem is moot as it will collapse before the election. Obama is the Antichrist and the new world government will be a reality as the Bible states in the book of Revelation. The only question is what role will the USA play in this new world order and how crippled and totalitarian will the country be?

Hillary Is Secretive, Abusive Because of Psychic Scarring

TDB's picture

She wasn’t always like this … No, Hillary Rodham Clinton was once willing to share her deepest thoughts and feelings, as she did in a 1993 speech on “the politics of meaning,” delivered as her father lay dying, in which she said the country was suffering “a sleeping sickness of the soul,” and urged her fellow citizens “to remold society by redefining what it means to be a human being in the 20th century.”   – Politico

This article attempts to convince us that Hillary is secretive and abusive because she has been psychically injured during her long career of public service.

But there are so many instances in Hillary’s past of ways she has deliberately injured others that it is difficult to believe such acts are mostly the result of ongoing injured feelings.

On its surface, therefore, this Politico article is jaw-dropping in terms of its thesis and argumentation. But there is probably another reason for its dissemination as well: More on that below.

From a surface standpoint, we are aware that she has been more than ordinarily abusive to others working with her or reporting to her. It has even been suggested that Vince Foster killed himself because of her relentless denigration when he worked at the White House as Special Council.

But another reason has recently circulated once more for Foster’s supposed suicide: He was devastated by the Waco massacre, which Hillary supposedly had a hand in triggering.  See here.

It is hard to believe that Hillary pushed for the cold-blooded murder of 80 individuals including women and children because of personal psychic scarring. Supposedly, Waco was impeding the momentum of the health-care overhaul she wanted to pursue.

Perhaps Hillary was so mean in the White House because her husband was having numerous outside affairs. But the way she chose to handle these affairs was not necessarily to confront Bill but to intimidate the women by means fair and foul to ensure they did not talk.

Right from the beginning of her White House tenure, Hillary was malicious and manipulative. She fired the personnel of the White House Travel office and tried to jail individuals with phony charges of corruption. She did this because she wanted her own people in charge of the office, which generated lucrative fees.

When Hillary and Bill left the White House they stole a lot of furniture and silverware, and eventually had to give some of it back.

These are just some of the issues surrounding Hillary that seem to indicate that her behavior is not the result of psychic scarring but something more profound and even wicked.

The Politico article is firm in its thesis and analysis however:

[As a result of her speech] she was roundly, relentlessly ridiculed, most infamously in a New York Times cover story, titled “Saint Hillary,” by the late Michael Kelly, in which she expounded at even greater length on her personal passions, unaware that Kelly would use them to mock her for high-minded earnestness.

In those interviews, the public Hillary Clinton was altogether different than the one the public sees today: less guarded, more candid, far more eager to embrace the “larger message” she’s so often criticized for lacking now.

When Kelly suggested to her that she was “trying to come up with a sort of unified-field theory of life,” she responded in what he described as “excited” tones: “That’s right, that’s exactly right!”

“She is, it develops in the course of two long conversations,” Kelly wrote then, “looking for a way of looking at the world that would marry conservatism and liberalism, and capitalism and statism, that would tie together practically everything: the way we are, the way we were …

This is a good explanation of Hillary’s fundamental approach to politics and life: She wants to marry “capitalism and statism” together.

In other words, the animating drive of her adult life was to create lasting fascism and impose it on America.

She is not so far from doing so.

Presumably, in the process of realizing her dreams for the larger society, Hillary was able to justify actions most would find reprehensible.

That’s one way to look at it. Another is simply that she is a venal and manipulative person who has a sociopath’s gift for doing as she chooses without concern for the results.

In any event, it is very difficult to marry her many malicious actions with psychic scarring based on people’s unkindness.

There are many in this world exposed to worse who do not act the way Hillary behaves, and thus it is very hard to take this Politico story seriously.

But as we suggested at the beginning of this article, there may be other reasons to publish this Politico perspective.

First, we have to realize that as ridiculous as this Politico article seems it is by no means alone. There are pro-Hillary articles published on a regular basis that are nearly as illogical and naïve-seeming as this one.

It is fairly clear to anyone who pays attention that the Clintons are part of a larger corrupt system that is dedicated to removing or diminishing nation-states in order to create stronger global governance.

Part of this system involves putting into place destructive mechanisms that undermine the military, politics and even the media.

It is this last point that is important to note here. Hillary’s political campaign has forced the worst kind of biased and inaccurate reporting out into the open.

The most “prestigious” publications such as the New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times as well as the country pre-eminent thought magazines such as The New Yorker and The Atlantic regularly issue article that almost anyone capable of reading can debunk.

We would argue this is not by accident. The other day (here) we made the point that it seemed Hillary’s elite backers were desperate to ensure her election. We hypothesized that her ability to lead the US into war was seen as most valuable.

It is fairly clear that the world’s economic system is worsening and that central banking actions are undermining whatever shards of solvency are still apparent. Consider this thesis as viable and then accept that it is being buttressed by reports such as the one just issued by Gallup (here) showing that Americans hold mass media in lower respect than ever.

We would argue that these two results are not unrelated. American mainstream media is being torn down on purpose along with the political process to further raze democracy and weaken the West’s functionality generally.

Conclusion: The world and specifically the West are being prepared for a major change that will feature a diminution of local authority in favor of global governance. Within this context, articles even as terrible as this one in Politico are no accident. They are designed to polarize the population and increase mistrust of mass media reporting. It is fortunate, therefore, that we have the opposition of ‘Net news.

Sept 17 2016 Is an economic meltdown coming to USA in less than a month?

As I have stated in past articles I think that conditions are just right for a major economic meltdown worldwide.

The article explains the enormous distortion caused by the credit and derivatives bubbles that are ready to burst. I believe that bubble will burst on October 3, 2016 on the day of Rosh Hashanah  and it will bear the signature authentication of GOD.

The Financial System is in Worse Shape Today Than in 2007

Phoenix Capital Research's picture

This is a reprint from an article published earlier this year. In light of what’s happening in the markets today, the below items are worth rememebering!

For seven years, the world has operated under a complete delusion that Central Banks somehow fixed the 2008 Crisis.

All of the arguments claiming this defied common sense. A 5th grader would tell you that you cannot solve a debt problem by issuing more debt. Similarly, anyone with a functioning brain could tell you that a bunch of academics with no real-world experience, none of whom have ever started a business or created a single job can’t “save” the economy.

However, there is an AWFUL lot of money at stake in believing these lies. So the media and the banks and the politicians were happy to promote them. Indeed, one could very easily argue that nearly all of the wealth and power held by those at the top of the economy stem from this fiction.

So it’s little surprise that no one would admit the facts: that the Fed and other Central Banks not only don’t have a clue how to fix the problem, but that they actually have almost no incentive to do so.

So here are the facts:

·      The REAL problem for the financial system is the bond bubble. In 2008 when the crisis hit it was $80 trillion. It has since grown to over $100 trillion.

·      The derivatives market that uses this bond bubble as collateral is over $555 trillion in size.

·      Many of the large multinational corporations, sovereign governments, and even municipalities have used derivatives to fake earnings and hide debt. NO ONE knows to what degree this has been the case, but given that 20% of corporate CFOs have admitted to faking earnings in the past, it’s likely a significant amount.

·      Corporations today are more leveraged than they were in 2007. The average credit rating for US companies that have issued debt is JUNK. This is WORSE than it was in 2008.

·      The Central Banks are now all leveraged at levels greater than or equal to Lehman Brothers was when it imploded. The Fed is leveraged at 78 to 1. The ECB is leveraged at over 26 to 1. Lehman Brothers was leveraged at 30 to 1.

·      The Central Banks have no idea how to exit their strategies. Fed minutes released from 2009 show Janet Yellen was worried about how to exit when the Fed’s balance sheet was $1.3 trillion. Today it’s over $4.5 trillion.

·      Today, Central Bankers are now actively punishing depositors and bond holders with negative interest rates. Globally, over $13 trillion in debt currently have negative yields in nominal terms, meaning the bond literally has a negative yield when it trades. In the simplest of terms this means that investors are PAYING to own these bonds.

Bonds are not unique in this regard. Switzerland, Denmark and other countries are now charging deposits at their banks. In France and Italy, you are not allowed to make cash transactions above €1,000. So if get fed up with the banks and want to pull your money out, you cannot.

We are heading for a crisis that will be exponentially worse than 2008. The global Central Banks have literally bet the financial system that their theories will work. They haven’t. All they’ve done is set the stage for an even worse crisis in which entire countries will go bankrupt.

More and more this environment feels like late 2007/ early 2008: when the economy was in collapse but stocks held up on hopes that the Fed could maintain the bubble.

We’re currently preparing for a similar situation today.

On that note, we are already preparing our clients for this with a 21-page investment report titled the Stock Market Crash Survival Guide.

In it, we outline the coming crash will unfold…which investments will perform best… and how to take out “crash” insurance trades that will pay out huge returns during a market collapse.

RUSLAND MOBILISEERT!

On Monday, August 29, we reported that Russia had mobilized Reserve Army Troops for the first time since the 1968 invasion of Czechoslovakia.  Today, Tuesday August 30, we have found that the total mobilization is actually 80 mobilization brigades.  About 10 tank brigades, 30 motor rifle brigades, 20 artillery and 20 other support brigades. So about 300,000 men. Our original story appears HERE.

SuperStation95 has reached out to our contacts in the Pentagon, The Intelligence Community and the State Department and the answers we’re getting are very serious.

According to the Pentagon, there has never been a mobilization like this in Russia before.  The shear size of it is described by seasoned Pentagon officials as “staggering!”  According to two separate sources in the Intelligence Community, various intel sources indicate the Russians intend to take action – but they are not certain if that action will be in Ukraine, Syria or . . . Turkey.  The fear is that the size of this mobilization may mean “all of the above.”

Our source in the Pentagon put it this way:

Russia has also mobilized divisions of the National Guard, and the NAF is mobilizing its reserves to go from 35,000 men to 95,000.

Russia has assured this will be a coalition war by sending its CSTO allies to the Belarussian-Polish border. So that includes units from Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Armenia, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan.

When you count it all up, Russia and allies now have something like half a million men on alert opposite Ukraine, the Baltics and Poland.

I’ve never seen anything like it.

 

Let’s recap a little as to how things got so bad.

In Ukraine, the lawfully and democratically elected President, Yanukovich, was overthrown after tens of thousands of Ukraine citizens protested – often violently – for months.  It turned out that it was the United States and its NATO allies who bankrolled the protesters, to the tune of five Billion dollars!  This was proven when Russian intelligence tapped a phone call between Deputy Secretary of State Gloria Nuland and her staff in the US State Department.  Recordings of that conversation were made public by Russia and contained the infamous comment by Nuland “Fuck Europe.”

The reason the US and NATO bankrolled the overthrow of the Ukrainian government was due to the fact that Yanukovich was aligned with Moscow.  The US and NATO wanted Ukraine to be more aligned with the West, but Yanukovich wouldn’t budge.  So the US and NATO bankrolled protests and ultimately, Yanukovich had to flee for his life into Russia.  That allowed the US and NATO to set up a puppet government in Ukraine’s capital, Kiev, which is now favorable to the west.

When the former Soviet Union disintegrated in 1991, Russia sought — and was given — a guarantee by the US:   NATO would “not move even one inch east” toward Russia.  That promise, by then Secretary of State James Baker, turned out to be totally false.  In a short time span, the former Soviet states of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania applied for membership in NATO and it was granted.  Next came Poland and Romania.  Granted.

Left in all this change was Ukraine . . . until the west moved to overthrow that government.

This overthrow was intolerable by the Russians.  For years, Moscow watched as NATO not only moved one-inch further east, but made giant leaps and was now positioning troops and armor along Russia’s western Border.  When the Ukraine government was overthrown, Russia took action.

They began by moving about twenty thousand troops to their Black Sea Naval Fleet base in southern Ukraine; a peninsula called Crimea.  Within days, those troops moved out into Crimea and annexed the peninsula.  They claimed that Crimea was once part of Russia — it was — but was given to Ukraine by Kruschev.  They also claimed that ethnic Russians inside Crimea were being discriminated against by Kiev and they wanted to return to being part of Russia.   A Referendum was held and more than 80% of the voters in Crimea voted to return to Russia.

The US and NATO countries claimed the referendum was fraught with fraud and will not recognize the movement of Crimea back into Russia.  The US and NATO imposed economic sanctions upon Russia until Crimea is given back to Ukraine.  Russia has made clear, Crimea is now a permanent part of Russia and it is not going anywhere.

After Crimea was annexed, Ethnic Russians in eastern Ukraine, near Donbas and Luhansk, reported they were being “ethnically cleansed” by the Kiev government.  They called to Russia for help.  Shortly thereafter, “little green men” in brand new, UNMARKED army uniforms, armed with state of the art weapons systems including tanks, missile launchers and the like, began appearing in eastern Ukraine and forcing the Ukraine authorities OUT.  Thus began a proxy war in eastern Ukraine between Russia and Ukraine/US/NATO.   But the US and NATO have to move cautiously because Ukraine is NOT a member of NATO.

The Ethnic Russians in eastern Ukraine have made great strides and fighting in that part of Ukraine tends to be fierce.  The fighting has now gone on for a couple years, and given developments around the world, it appears that this fight will be brought to a violent conclusion by a massive Russian invasion.

Intel analysts believe the invasion will take place in September, after the G-20 Summit in China.  They also know that the Russians can move with so much power, so many troops and so much armor, that Ukraine would fall within days . . . with NATO utterly powerless to do anything about it.

In the interim, Syria has been faced with US (and NATO) backed “rebels” trying to overthrow its democraticallyelected President, Bashar Assad.  The trouble began with a memo written by then-Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, who wrote that Assad needed to be overthrown “to help Israel.”  In fact, it was Assad’s refusal to allow a gas pipeline from Qatar to traverse Syria to supply Europe with natural gas, that actually caused the trouble.

Syria is — and has always been — an ally of Russia.  Europe does not like being so dependent upon Russian gas supplies, so the Arabs in Qatar agreed to run a huge gas pipeline from Qatar through several countries, including Syria, then on to Europe.  But Assad in Syria knew this would harm Russia, so he refused the pipeline.  That’s when a whole slew of  “Friends of Syria” started calling Assad a “brutal dictator” and alsobegan arming “rebels” to overthrow him.

When things got bad for Syria, Assad pleaded with Russia for military assistance, and Russia agreed.  The Russians made incredible strikes throughout Syria, clobbering both ISIS Terrorists and US-Backed Rebels.  This did not sit well with US and NATO ally, Turkey, which was caught accepting stolen oil from ISIS, and supplying ISIS with weapons to overthrow Assad!  So Turkey asked Russia to stop attacking the rebels and Russia refused.  Turkey then shot down a Russian Fighter jet.  Big mistake.

Turkey then made moves to get back into the good graces of Russia, which lead to an alleged Military Coupattempt to overthrow Turkish President Erdogan.  The Turkish president was quick to blame the United States for the attempted Coup and relations between the US and Turkey got so bad, so fast, that the US had to remove its 50-80 nuclear weapons from Turkey’s Incirlik air base because the US no longer trusts Turkey.

Throughout these affairs, Turkey has pushed to introduce its ground troops into Syria under the guise of “fighting ISIS.”  But since everyone now knows that ISIS is pals with Turkey, and that Turkey supports ISIS, it is clear to everyone who pays attention, that Turkey’s real goal is to assist ISIS and overthrow Bashar Assad of Syria to get the Qatar pipeline built.

Prior to Turkey sending in its troops, both the Syrian and Russian governments announced to the entire world “If any foreign troops enter Syria without the permission of the Syrian government, those troops will be attacked.”  Turkey has now flatly ignored that warning and sent troops and tanks into northern Syria.

According to a source in the US State Department, negotiations between the US and Russia for resolution of “the Syria problem” have failed. With no Diplomatic solution in sight, the State Department is terrified that Russia is going to settle the Syria problem by force . . . by attacking and destroying the remaining Rebels (and ISIS) and by totally smashing the Turksh Army units inside Syria.

Turkey is a member of NATO and would likely try to invoke the NATO defense Treaty if their troops were attacked.  But Turkey won;t be able to invoke that Treaty because Turkish troops illegally entered Syria!  So it look as though Turkey is going to be left swinging in the breeze by NATO as Russia comes in and stomps them out of Syria.

In order for Russia to accomplish operations in both Ukraine and Syria, they would need about . . . two hundred thousand to three hundred thousand men.  Exactly the numbers they have just mobilized.

See where this is going?  World War 3.  After the G-20 Meeting in China, this September.  Watch for it.

Suprised?  The US mass-media is the ONLY mass-media worldwide which is NOT covering all these developments.  Everyone else around the world knows things are coming to a fight; it’s just folks in the USA being kept ignorant.  Must be the Obama “transparency” at work.

Aug 26, 2016 Will 2016 and 2017 bring the USA physical and economic disasters?

Bible prophecy has a lot to say about the times we are living in now. Almost everyday there are news and events that can be linked to a specific Bible prophecy finding fulfillment in historical events around the world.

In the video linked below Paul McGuire and Gary Stearman discuss the latest book by Paul McGuire. In the talk it is mentioned by Paul the plan of the globalists to bring the one world government to control every human being alive today.

You will find that McGuire’s research of the book has been extensive and that his call to do the homework should be taken by every person who cares about himself and his family.

Paul mentions an economic collapse that will be forced into the present economic system to bring about a reboot of the economy and the introduction of a electronically based monetary system that the Bible talks about as the mark of the Beast in Rev:13.

The whole world appears to be in the cusp of madness and destruction but if you know Jesus Christ and His power there can be nothing but calm and trust that everything will turn for the good to those that put their trust in Him.
