A Spooky Feeling

d-3FRANKFORT, Ky. (Dec. 9, 2014) – “Earlier this afternoon, while participating in a national test of Kentucky’s Emergency Alert Notification System, an inadvertent message was sent to mobile devices in the Laurel County area with the text: ‘Civil Emergency in this area until 11:50 a.m. MST. Prepare for action.’  The error was discovered immediately due to the quick response of the public contacting local emergency management officials and the media. A follow-up message to disregard the previous message was immediately dispatched by Kentucky Emergency Management (KYEM) through the same system, and social media advised the public to please disregard the previous notification.” (see video of the messaging).

Kissenger The Prophet

kissinger“”Today Americans would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order; tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told there was an outside threat from beyond whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will pledge with world leaders to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well being granted to them by their world government. – Henry Kissinger in an address to the Bilderberger meeting at Evian, France, May 21, 1992.  Read the rest of this entry »

The Simpson’s Prophecy

It began in December 17, 1989 and has since broadcast over 556 episodes, with the 26th season beginning on September 28, 2014. There are some strange (prophetic) cartoons created by Groening in the past that should invoke curiosity over the creation of the Simpsons. What does the Simpson’s (i.e Matt Groening) know that we don’t?

Ebola Ebola Everywhere

waterWater Water Everywhere
Water water everywhere and not a drop to drink
That is of course until this lovely ship does sink
There is nothing to compare to a sunrise while at sea
Oh how I’ve missed those moments special just to me

Zombie Greenback

The dollar is well and alive. There is no financial apocalypse. Contrary to many predictions that the dollar is no longer a viable reserve currency and is therefore doomed, the dollar did not die but bounced up against most international currencies. The USD Index climbed above the 85 level after maintaining the 80 psychological level for the last one year. It almost hit an all time high again over the last 5 years. Why does the USD defy financial laws of gravity and continue to soar?

Ebola Pandemic

News Flashed

“Faced with a widening crisis over the spread of the deadly Ebola virus, Sierra Leone’s government said Tuesday that it would deploy hundreds of troops and police officers to ensure that patients and family members who may be infected remain isolated. A battalion — 750 soldiers — will be sent to clinics housing Ebola patients in areas where the disease is most virulent, and the police presence will be reinforced at homes where family members are at risk of having contracted it, said Abdulai Baratay, a government spokesman” (The New York Times, 6 August 2014).

The recent Ebola outbreak started in Guinea, West Africa in March 2014, just a few months ago. It progressed rapidly to Liberia, Sierra Leone, Ghana and Nigeria. It was not contained and is now heading for uncharted waters as the disease is poised to spread round the globe. The disease is reported to have no known vaccine, and has a high 50%-90% fatality rate. It was first reported in 1976 in the Democratic Republic of Congo, where it resulted in 431 deaths out of 602 known cases.  Read the rest of this entry »

Sneeze of Death

Yumen, a city in northern China was shuttered last week after a man died of bubonic plague. About 151 people with direct contact with the deceased were quarantined. Fortunately there have been no signs so far of the infection spreading. As a precautionary measure, the 30,000 residents have reportedly been barred from leaving the city while local police are also blocking people from entering the city. The plague is a bacterial infection, which spreads largely through fleas living on wild rodents. If diagnosed early, bubonic plague can be successfully treated with antibiotics. Pneumonic plague, on the other hand, is one of the most deadly infectious diseases; patients can die 24 hours after infection. The mortality rate depends on how soon treatment is started, but is always very high (World Health Organization).  Read the rest of this entry »
