World Bank warns of “darkening skies” for global economy

•January 18, 2019 • 4 Comments

The World Bank is warning of increasing risks, or what it calls “darkening skies”, for the world economy.

In its annual assessment of global prospects the Bank predicts continued, though somewhat slower, growth this year and next.

The Bank’s forecast for the global economy is expansion this year of 2.9% and 2.8% in 2020.

But overhanging the broadly favourable outlook are rising concerns that could mean economic performance falls short.

There is certainly some good news in this report. While the global economy is slowing down it’s likely to be what the Bank’s economists call a “soft landing”. The slowdown started in the middle of last year and it has so far been “orderly”.

The predicted slowdown is focused on the rich countries, particularly the US, although it will continue to expand more rapidly than either the Eurozone or Japan according to the Bank’s forecasts.

The US slowdown is the result of the fading impact of President Trump’s tax cuts and by 2021 its growth will have almost halved – to 1.6% compared with 2.9% last year.

On the other hand, growth in emerging markets and developing economies is likely to gather pace somewhat despite the continued cooling down in China – a process which began at the start of the decade.

By 2021 growth in China is expected to be 6%, which is still pretty strong, but it is a marked change of gear for an economy that expanded by an average of 10% annually between 1980 and 2010.

Franziska Ohnsorge, a World Bank economist and lead author of the report said in a BBC interview: “In China it’s policy engineered, a very deliberate slowdown towards more stable long term growth.”

That is what the Bank thinks is the likely performance of the world economy over the next few years. But there are risks that could mean that it doesn’t work out so well.

That is reflected in the title of this year’s report: “Darkening Skies”.

Some of the clouds are familiar ones.

International commerce is already weakening, and conflict over trade especially between the US and China is one of the major risks.

These are the two largest national economies on the planet. The Bank has calculated that 2.5% of global trade is affected by the new tariffs – trade taxes – that were imposed last year, and it would be double that if the further tariffs that have been discussed were implemented.

nothing new here..

BBC: Patriarch Kirill – Smartphone users warned to be careful of the Antichrist

•January 17, 2019 • 8 Comments

People’s dependence on smartphones and modern technology could bring about the coming of the Antichrist, the leader of the Russian Orthodox Church has warned.

Russian social media users largely responded with humour and scepticism, while some accused the Church of “serving the regime”.

Speaking to Russian state TV, Patriarch Kirill said smartphone users should be careful when using the “worldwide web of gadgets” because it represented “an opportunity to gain global control over mankind”.

“The Antichrist is the person who will be at the head of the worldwide web, controlling all of humankind,” he said.

“Every time you use your gadget, whether you like it or not, whether you turn on your location or not, somebody can find out exactly where you are, exactly what your interests are and exactly what you are scared of,” Patriarch Kirill told Rossiya 1.

“If not today, then tomorrow methods and technology could appear that will not just provide access to all information but will also allow the use of this information.

“Do you imagine what power will be concentrated in the hands of those who gain knowledge about what is going on in the world?

“Such control from one place forebodes the coming of the Antichrist.”

Patriarch Kirill said his Church was not against “technological progress”, rather “the development of a system that is aimed at controlling a person’s identity”.

Patriarch Kirill is close to Russian president Vladimir Putin, who participates in big Church celebrations and has gone on pilgrimages to Mount Athos and other famous Orthodox sites. Many Russian Orthodox priests closely identify with President Putin’s nationalist agenda.

At a time when internet freedoms are increasingly restricted in Russia – and authorities are reportedly attempting to create an independent Russian internet – this closeness led some to accuse Patriarch Kirill of lending government policy divine authority.

“They ban international internet in Russia so that the Antichrist doesn’t come out of it,” one social media user remarked.

On Saturday, the Orthodox Church of Ukraine split from the Russian Church following centuries of Russian leadership, formalising a decision announced in October.

The move sparked a furious response in Moscow and deepened a split in the world wide Orthodox Church.

old mate knows there is something evil in the “phones”..

“The Antichrist is the person who will be at the head of the worldwide web, controlling all of humankind,” he said.

like something out of the 80s..

“Such control from one place forebodes the coming of the Antichrist.”

Zimbabwe protests turn deadly after petrol prices become most expensive in the world

•January 17, 2019 • 1 Comment

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-01-15/zimbabwe-protests-turn-deadly-after-fuel-price-hike/10717892

Street clashes in Zimbabwe have turned deadly, with security forces confronting protesters who are railing against a hike in fuel prices during the country’s worst economic crisis in a decade.

Several people have been killed and at least 200 arrested in the midst of a nationwide strike.

The violence comes amid ongoing economic turmoil, with chronic unemployment and an acute shortage of hard currency in the country.

The strikes and protests were called after the Government increased the price of petrol by 150 per cent, without any warning, in a bid to ease fuel shortages.

Zimbabwe is now the most expensive place in the world to buy petrol, with a litre costing $4.60.

The average wage in Zimbabwe is about $320 a month, but the unemployment rate is 90 per cent, with most people working in the informal economy.

The Government offered public servants a wage increase after the protests turned deadly.

It has promised public workers a supplement of between 5 and 23 per cent of their salaries for the next three months.

People burned tyres and barricaded roads as the protests swelled, and most shops and schools in the main cities of Harare and Bulawayo were shut down.

There were eyewitness reports and videos of looting and of riot police using tear gas to disperse crowds.

The headquarters of the opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) party was set alight by arsonists amid the chaos.

Locals have reported widespread internet shutdowns and social media platforms have been blocked in parts of the country.

The ruling Zanu-PF Party, led by President Emmerson Mnangagwa, has been unable to reverse the country’s economic collapse since it won elections in August last year.

The polls were controversial, with widespread accusations of vote-rigging.

The latest violence echoes post-election clashes in August, which saw six people killed when troops opened fire on protesters in Harare.

Mr Mnangagwa is currently en route to the World Economic Forum in Davos.

and look at this:

interesting eh?

“The average wage in Zimbabwe is about $320 a month, but the unemployment rate is 90 per cent, with most people working in the informal economy.”

what a life..

“the Government increased the price of petrol by 150 per cent, without any warning, in a bid to ease fuel shortages.”

The center of our brain contains a secret of monumental importance

•January 16, 2019 • 48 Comments

http://www.anonews.co/the-center-of-our-brain-contains-a-secret-of-monumental-importance/?fbclid=IwAR1Fx_rHqceQ8fLz1GxkMywTvirWnTQOMVYM1XWQIJcf4g7wmVUyWMA2ZeM

It’s the duty of every person to educate the generation that comes after them, the younger sibling generation, the people a few years younger than them, on whatever they feel is important: street smarts. In California, you’d call that lacing them with some game.

As it was taught to me by the people a few years older who knew about psychedelics, the pineal gland is an organ in the center of the human brain, thought to be what people were referring to in ancient times when they mentioned a “third eye,” and needless to say it’s one of the least well understood organs in the human body.

Shaped like a little pine cone, in the dead center of our brains, its primary function is to release melatonin and regulate sleep, and certain other hormonal processes. Numerous works of art were produced in the last decade alone about the pineal gland, DMT, and the out of body experience the substance produces when ingested.

The monuments and shrines dedicated to pine cones throughout the world have been compared to the pineal gland, with many people speculating that the sites were trying to depict the pineal gland because of its connection to spirituality.

So how is the pineal gland linked to spirituality? It is believed that the human brain produces dimethyltryptamine (DMT) in the pineal gland, and that the chemical has a central role in near-death experiences, or actual experiences with death, and possibly dreaming as well.

It’s an old urban legend that when you dream and when you die, your pineal gland produces DMT, a chemical that sort of takes you out of your body, transports you between the world of matter and spirit so to speak.

This spiritual belief is something that some of the people growing up in the 2010’s decade, born in the 1990’s, grew up with. A lot of people believe that the pineal gland produces DMT which is a part of living and dying, dreaming and connecting this world to wherever we go when we pass away.

Why? Because a lot of people of this generation have experience using DMT. Most people know about it, but DMT that people ingest is usually a yellow, crystalline substance extracted from root bark from South America. It cannot easily be overdosed on or cause dangerous things to happen unless it’s mental, like most psychedelics.

In South America, the natives have ingested Ayahuasca, a brew containing a DMT-rich root bark and an MAOI inhibiting plant to make the DMT orally active, for an untold number of centuries to have spiritual experiences.

DMT makes people feel teleported out of this world, if they ingest enough, and experience something that amounts to meeting god, or meeting some kind of inter-dimensional entities or landscape, and every person who does it experiences something intensely different. Of course DMT is technically illegal in the United States, as most psychedelics unfortunately are.

People who do DMT only trip for usually 5-20 minutes, unless it is ingested orally in Ayahuasca which can last for several hours, but it can feel like a lifetime as they describe it.

It’s a drug that doesn’t seem like a drug, to every person who experiences it, it feels like a literal portal out of this dimension to some place outside of this reality. It feels like waking up out of this life we’re in, to a much larger situation, and many people report understanding what existence is after consuming it, and even no longer fearing death.

The chemical DMT is known to naturally occur in the pineal gland of rats, so it seems likely that many mammals have a pineal gland that produces it. DMT is a tryptamine, related chemically to both melatonin and the active chemical in psychedelic mushrooms, psilocybin (or psilocin, once the liver converts it to that).

a lot to get through here..

the pineal gland is an organ in the center of the human brain, thought to be what people were referring to in ancient times when they mentioned a “third eye,” and needless to say it’s one of the least well understood organs in the human body.”

indeed..

“DMT makes people feel teleported out of this world, if they ingest enough, and experience something that amounts to meeting god, or meeting some kind of inter-dimensional entities or landscape, and every person who does it experiences something intensely different.”

anyone tried it?

the pineal gland is the eye of horus..no coincidences..

Brexit warning ahead of crucial Parliament vote..May defeated

•January 16, 2019 • 3 Comments

https://www.9news.com.au/2019/01/15/01/42/brexit-theresa-may-deal-promise-workers-rights-european-union-letter-boris-johnson-warning

British Prime Minister Theresa May has offered both a promise on workers’ rights and a reassuring letter from European Union leaders, as she implored legislators to support her floundering Brexit deal.

But the British leader had few concrete measures up her sleeve a day before a vote in Parliament which looks likely to see her Brexit deal rejected.

She warned MPs in parliament that they risked “letting the British people down” if they voted down a deal and – to jeers – that the history books would judge them on their vote.

A defeat tomorrow would throw Brexit plans into disarray just weeks before the UK is due to leave the bloc on March 29.

The uncertainty over the UK pound is worrying global markets, reports CNN.

Jochen Stanzl, an analyst at CMC Markets, said the pound could weaken in the immediate aftermath of a defeat to $AUD1.73 from its current perch above $AUD1.77. That would put the currency close to its lowest level since early 2017.

But what happens in the days after the vote is much more difficult to predict.

“All hell could break loose as the various factions of parliament struggle to gain control of the Brexit process,” said Kallum Pickering, a senior economist at Berenberg.

“We are probably about to enter the phase of peak uncertainty.”

The wide range of potential outcomes, and the seriousness of their consequences, presents a major challenge to currency traders.

“It’s really hard to say upfront what the main scenario will be,” said Stanzl.

no surprises here..always doomed..powerful forces are at play here..they dont want to see brexit..the union will not be broken up is what they want..

Meet the man who controlled 10 Presidents for 54 years

•January 15, 2019 • 9 Comments

http://www.anonews.co/meet-the-man-who-controlled-10-presidents-for-54-years/?fbclid=IwAR21B_cScE55Hy2Akv_liKUzt6aIzCHtY8xiJFst6LKJYolbrAH6BJz6DDc

In 2018, an old generation of people who really should remember the power players from several decades ago are in the same realm of ignorance as the younger generations who had never heard of them.

For the past 54 years at least, and even a little bit before, one man has been in a position of power to perfectly demonstrate why left and right are irrelevant: Henry Kissinger.

From his actions in aiding the execution of civilians in Chile, to his support of other genocidal dictators for his own team’s political interests, demonstrating the immorality of Henry Kissinger is not difficult.

People often try to persuade others to wake up to the fact that the left-right paradigm is a false representation of the way power really works, but most people who aren’t inclined to care, won’t. This is a special kind of evidence, so powerful it just might be enough to persuade skeptics that left and right are irrelevant.

So when you try to show someone on the fence that left and right are an illusion, show them this. For the past 54 years, Henry Kissinger has advised and influenced the past 10 presidents. He’s actually a protege of David Rockefeller, and helped David Rockefeller’s brother Nelson become Vice President under the administration of Gerald Ford.

He essentially serves as a middleman, from a higher level of power to the politicians who carry out the orders of the ultra-powerful and ultra-rich.

It was said that the last president to not be photographed with Kissinger was John F. Kennedy, but some evidence even suggests Kissinger had an influence at that time.

Even people who have come close to the presidential office are extremely close to Kissinger: in other words, Hillary Clinton. Hillary is extremely, extremely close to Kissinger and Kissinger is continuously meeting with and praising Trump.
