The Israel Deception

Is the return of Israel in the 20th century truly a work of God, or is it a result of a cosmic chess move to deceive the elect by the adversary?

Russian alternative to SWIFT ready to connect over 40 percent of the worlds population to a non-dollar financial system

When President Barack Obama decided to use economic warfare against Russia as cover for their regime change war in Ukraine, the outcome was like a checkers novice playing against a chess grandmaster.  And this is because in the five years since the U.S. began cutting off Russia from the SWIFT system, the Eurasian power has created its own new standard that is now fully online.

And in a report announced on October 28, Russia's SWIFT alternative (SPFS) is ready to connect with both India and China and create a system that will contain over 40% of the world's population in trade that functions outside the dollar.

Members of the BRICS trade bloc Russia, India, and China have decided to connect their financial messaging systems to bypass the SWIFT international money transfer network. 
Russia’s financial messaging system SPFS will be linked with the Chinese cross-border interbank payment system CIPS. While India does not have a domestic financial messaging system yet, it plans to combine the Central Bank of Russia’s platform with a domestic service that is in development. 
The new system is expected to work as a “gateway” model when messages on payments are transcoded in accordance with a certain financial system. - RT

New York turning into California as JP Morgan prepares to leave high tax state for the business friendly confines of Texas

If you want to see a microcosm of what happens when liberals seek to tax the hell out of the rich, all you have to do is look at the six month tragedy that is the state of Connecticut.  And this is because in just a short period of time after deciding to increase taxes on millionaires and hedge funds, the capital city went completely insolvent after the very businesses they were targeting up and left town.

Gov. Dannel Malloy is waging a bare-knuckle budget battle with state legislators in Hartford, even as that capital city teeters on the brink of bankruptcy. Both sides are trying to staunch the projected $2.7 billion deficit for the new fiscal year beginning July 1 without raising personal income taxes, already among the highest in the nation. 
And while still smarting after General Electric moved its corporate headquarters from Stamford to Boston last year, the Nutmeg State suffered another body slam in early June when insurance behemoth Aetna announced it’s leaving its home office in Hartford after 164 years for new HQ digs in Manhattan (although about 5,000 employees will remain in Connecticut). 
Connecticut is hardly alone among states that have seen corporate residents flee, but marquee names like GE and Aetna make for bad PR, not to mention a deleterious decline in tax revenues. Besides those two exits, several of the state’s high-earning hedge funds have relocated to Florida, causing a steep drop in receipts. - CNBC
Yet sleepy Connecticut is by far not the biggest state to see an outflow of companies once their taxation policies began to focus on the rich.  Illinois, New York, and especially California have seen massive migrations to tax friendly states, and it looks like even Wall Street is getting into the act in the coming months.
A new report via Bloomberg details how JPMorgan Chase & Co. is preparing for the next economic downturn by weighing the option to relocate its Manhattan headquarters to lower-cost financial hubs such as ones in Plano, Texas; Columbus, Ohio; and Wilmington, Delaware. 
JPM spokesman Joe Evangelisti told Bloomberg the bank's new headquarters (likely to be in Texas), will house twice the number of employees than its Manhattan office.
Sources told Bloomberg that hundreds of credit-risk employees have already transferred to Texas. Other sources have said Manhattan will no longer be the location for the bank's compliance. 
Bloomberg noted that other large financial institutions had been exiting NYC for lower-cost commercial hubs across the country. 
Deutsche Bank expanded operations in Jacksonville, Florida; Goldman Sachs has built officers in Salt Lake City; and AllianceBernstein Holding LP announced plans to move its headquarters to Nashville, Tennessee. - Zerohedge
The demographical shifts should be a warning sign to Democrats and Liberals who think they can continue in their 'policy of envy' by promising to tax the rich into oblivion.  But as we saw a few years ago in France when President Hollande instituted his own tax the rich scheme, wealthy companies and individuals will simply pack up and leave town, and make matters far worse for already insolvent states and countries.

Welfare State now complete as takers outdo producers in the fact that government issues more benefits than it takes in from taxes

When former President Lyndon Bains Johnson in 1964 issued his proclamation that the government was ready to go full bore in a 'War on Poverty', very few realized it would be the beginning of the end for the American system, economy, and culture.  And sadly this transition would only take about 55 years as on Oct. 24 we have finally reached the point where the government spends more on welfare than it does receiving tax revenues.

The takers in America have now outdone the producers.

Without government largesse, many individuals would literally be living on the street. The chart above shows all the government “welfare” programs and current levels to date. While unemployment insurance has hit record lows following the financial crisis, social security, medicaid, veterans’ benefits, and other social benefits have continued to rise and have surged sharply over the last few months. 
With 1/5 of incomes dependent on government transfers, it is not surprising that the economy continues to struggle as recycled tax dollars used for consumption purposes have virtually no impact on the overall economy. 
In fact, in the ongoing saga of the demise of the American economy U.S. households are now getting more in cash handouts from the government than they are paying in taxes for the first time since the Great Depression. This, of course, at a time when the current administration is more enthralled with trying to find some universe where cutting taxes actually increases tax revenues as a percent of GDP rather than actually cutting spending. 
In 2018, households received $2.2 trillion in some form of government transfer payments, which was more than the $1.7 trillion paid in personal income taxes. – Real Investment Advice

Trump impeachment farce appears to be desperate act by Democrats to protect Biden, Schiff, and even Pelosi from their own Ukraine dealings

Make no mistake, Democrats and the Deep State bureaucracy have sought to negate the results of the 2016 election even before Donald Trump was inaugurated into office.  And when the Russiagate Hoax failed following the release of the Mueller Report, House Democrats began feverishly looking for their next Quixotic windmill to use to try to impeach the President.

But perhaps what many like Pelosi, Schiff, and Biden did not plan for was the ouster of their Ukrainian puppet Petro Poroshenko, who had helped facilitate schemes that enriched these politicians with fraudulent jobs for their children, and cash contributions for their coffers.

Joe Biden:
Among the documents, as Fox News reported Wednesday, are notes from an interview Trump attorney Giuliani conducted with fired Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin earlier this year, in which he claimed he was told by former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey R. Pyatt to back off an investigation involving that firm, Burisma Holdings, and its founder. According to interview notes, Shokin claimed Pyatt -- currently the ambassador to Greece -- told him to handle that investigation “with white gloves.” 
In that interview, Shokin also claimed that former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko told him he should not investigate Burisma, “as it was not in the interest of Joe and/or Hunter Biden.” Shokin claimed Poroshenko told him that due to his investigation, Joe Biden held “up to one billion dollars in U.S. aid to Ukraine.” Poroshenko eventually removed Shokin. – Fox News

Adan Schiff:
In  2013, Pasternak hosted a fundraiser in Washington for Schiff, who later came to embrace a strong stance in support of the United States sending military aid to Ukraine during its conflict with Russia. 
“Before this time, Schiff rarely, if ever, mentioned Ukraine,” Fox News’ Laura Ingraham said on her show Thursday night, after detailing Schiff’s connection to Pasternak. “But after the fundraiser, he used multiple television appearances to basically demand that we send money and arms to them.” – Fox News
Speaker Nancy Pelosi:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s son Paul Pelosi Jr. visited Ukraine in 2017 to meet with government officials in connection to a business initiative. Now, unearthed records reveal that Paul Pelosi Jr. was an executive of a gas industry company that did business in Ukraine – and his mother Nancy Pelosi was featured in one of the company’s promotional videos. – National File

Then of course there is Paul Manafort, who following his conviction for acting as a foreign agent to and with Ukrainian oligarchs was outed as a Democratic operative working within the Trump campaign.

Ironically it appears that President Trump is the only politician actually following the law when it comes to Ukraine and his seeking their assistance in investigating corruption of American agents.  And that is because the American people do not know of, and the Democrats have conveniently forgotten, that in 1999 President Bill Clinton established an agreement between the US and Ukraine to aid one another in any and all criminal investigations, meaning everything Trump did in his phone calls and discussions was completely and utterly above board.

Is it time for some RICO indictments against Boeing as whistleblower reports executives cut corners to engage in a stock pump and dump

On Oct. 2, a senior Boeing engineer blew the whistle on the company for knowingly cutting corners that possibly could have led to the crash of multiple 737 Max aircraft.

The New York Times has published a bombshell report about a new complaint filed against Boeing by a senior engineer, alleging the aircraft maker concentrated on prioritizing profits over the safety of the 737 Max airliner.  
The Times learned about the new development from a source who requested anonymity, said the Boeing engineer filed the complaint after the two crashes (Lion Air accident in October 2018 and Ethiopian Airlines accident in March 2019). - New York Times via Zerohedge
Yet perhaps even more disturbing is the assertion that Boeing execs may have done this in order to both collect on billions of dollars worth of options that would trigger if certain milestones were accomplished, and also to aid in pumping up the stock price in order to dump said shares when they reached new highs.
By prioritizing profits, Boeing executives certainly seemed to rush the 737 Max from development into production, at the expense of safety, not just to contend with the Airbus A320neo, but to unlock billions of dollars in stock buybacks that were tied to significant milestones relating to plane's sales. This enabled Boeing's stock to rise nearly 300% in 36 months, while executives used the opportunity to dump company stock.
Sadly if true, Boeing not the only American company throwing safety to the wind in order to profit off the deaths of others.  In fact one of the biggest lawsuits underway right now involves a pharmaceutical company called Purdue who knowingly pushed their opioid based painkillers onto the market and helped create an addiction epidemic not seen since the crack era of the 1990s.
