Meanwhile In India, It Is So Hot The Roads Are Melting, "One Billion People Impacted" | Zero Hedge

Meanwhile In India, It Is So Hot The Roads Are Melting, "One Billion People Impacted" | Zero Hedge

While we patiently await Wall Street's weathermen, formerly known as economists, to blame the next swoon in US GDP on California's relentless drought, now in its fourth year, we wonder how many double seasonally-adjusted, pro-forma, non-GAAP GDP points India's blistering heatwave will bring. Because if California thinks it has it bad, India has it far worse.
According to the National Post, soaring summer temperatures in India have left more than 1,400 people dead over the past month, officials said Thursday. Most of the 1,412 heat-related deaths so far have occurred in Andhra Pradesh and neighbouring Telangana, where temperatures have soared up to 47 C, according to government figures.
AccuWeather described India's scorching weather as the most intense heat wave in India in recent years, adding that "a very active typhoon season, combined with drought in much of India, could have a significant impact on lives and property for more than a billion people in Asia during the summer of 2015."

Emergency Powers Give Barack Obama Authority Over Just About Everything During A Major National Crisis

Emergency Powers Give Barack Obama Authority Over Just About Everything During A Major National Crisis

Presidents have always exercised emergency powers, but now thanks to dozens of new laws, regulations, court decisions and executive orders, Barack Obama is the most powerful president in all of U.S. history.  Of course the U.S. Constitution does not actually give the president any special powers during a time of national emergency, but over time presidents have decided that they should be able to exercise such powers and the courts have generally agreed with them.  During World War II and prior to that, these emergency powers were largely uncodified and were primarily used during times of war.  But since World War II things have completely changed, and this has particularly been true since 9/11.  Over the past decade or so, a whole host of extraordinary powers have specifically been given to the office of the president, and all that it takes to exercise them is a major “national emergency”.  So if we do have a full-blown economic collapse, a historic natural disaster, a significant war or a massive pandemic, Barack Obama could use the emergency powers that he has been given to essentially take authority over everything.
There is not a single document or series of documents that contain all of the emergency powers that Barack Obama could potentially wield during a major national emergency.  As I mentioned above, these powers come from literally dozens of laws, regulations, court decisions and executive orders.  But in this article I will discuss a few important documents.  One of these is a presidential directive that was issued during the second term of George W. Bush.  It is entitled NATIONAL SECURITY PRESIDENTIAL DIRECTIVE/NSPD – 51/HOMELAND SECURITY PRESIDENTIAL DIRECTIVE/HSPD – 20, and you can take a look at it on the FEMA website right here.  This document is primarily concerned with the continuity of our federal government in the event of a catastrophic emergency.  So precisely what would constitute a “catastrophic emergency”?  The following is how the document defines that term…
“Catastrophic Emergency” means any incident, regardless of location, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the U.S. population, infrastructure, environment, economy, or government functions;
That sounds quite broad to me.  It could apply to all sorts of scenarios.
If we do have such a “catastrophic emergency”, the president essentially becomes a dictator at that point.  The document certainly talks about the need to ensure that “constitutional government” continues, but during the course of the emergency there really is not much of a role for the other two branches of government to play.  Instead, the “shadow government” takes over under the overall command of the president.  The following is a short excerpt from the document…

Viral Vaccines How They Spread Disease


Here is an interview I did on and It was a great experience and I feel we touched on many of the non disclosed aspects revolving around vaccines and immunizations. Please Share This Information.
Streamed live on May 26, 2015
Our Resistance Round Table guest Experimental Vaccines was amazing. EV Kenny works with develop disabled and mentally ill patients and children with behavioural issues. EV noticed most of those he has worked with were in some way or another connected with vaccines and the damage they have done to so many people. He began researching in depth on the effects of vaccines just after his encounter with a bad vaccine at the age of 19. 
Here are an array of topics we talked about and discussed over the 2 hr period of the show. It was fast hitting and shocking to learn so much of the information being uncovered about the bad effects of the vaccines on the populace.
- recommends asking for exemption forms and inserts
- vaccines cause febrile seizures
- number of vaccines and combinations of vaccines are problematic
- in Australia, transfer payments are limited to families who refuse to vaccinate
- children who have just received a vaccine are more contagious than unvaccinated children - re: Disney Measles outbreak
- discussed aggressive merging of GMO and Vaccine agenda
- Scientists now pressing that delaying breastfeeding to boost vaccine efficiency and how ridiculous that sounds. 
- during MMR testing, they did not test for SV40
- Kenny asked audience for vaccines inserts from their area
- Event Skeptic asked about the efficacy of the Hep B. vaccine which is given to infants
- We talked about how fear pushes legislation through
- the use of human diploid cells from aborted fetal tissue
- Kenny went through the vaccine exception and media summary where adjutants are detailed and discussed the senator lying.
- discussed efforts (SB 540) to get rid of exemption forms altogether
- how vaccine trials even use aluminum in the baseline which skews the studies
- how vaccine trials changed the time frame, thus skewing the length of time measured between shot and adverse results
- how several auto-immune diseases, ie. Guillane Barre could actually be polio in another form
- social media efforts to promote clean vaccines and how there is no such thing, and Alex Jones is promoting dis-info
- is there any value in a vaccine, Kenny said the fundamental way of how vaccines work would say no value
- discussed if whooping cough vaccine could still be affecting someone years later (yes)
In summary I have to add there were several times during the show the panel had a lapse in response. The information is so resounding and informative how can you dispute the documented facts on the subject. I believe we were all set back by how very informed and educated on the facts EV is there is no way to argue the details. 
In closing I only wish my doctor was as well informed and had actually researched the information as much as Experimental Vaccines has. An amazing guest and astounding information. 

PSYWAR - The Real Battlefield is the Mind Part 1

Tracey Kennedy - CERN and “Psywar” - 26 May 2015 
Tracey Kennedy – Psyops around CERN? Reports of scientists under duress. Quote from Department of Defense US Army Field Manual 33-1: “Psyops. Psychological Operations. Any form of communication in support of objectives designed to influence the opinions, emotions, attitudes or behaviour of any group in order to benefit the sponsor, either directly or indirectly”. 
The film “Psywar” explores the evolution of propaganda and public relations in the United States, with an emphasis on the elitist theory of democracy‚ and the relationship between war, propaganda and class.

FIFA football officials to face corruption court in the land of soccer


14 people have been indicted, half of them are top FIFA executives. They were literally pulled out of their luxury suits in Zurich. They came there to vote in FIFA's presidential election. The raid's reason - corruption. The officials were arrested as part of 2 separate investigations: One by the FBI, over multi-million bribes and kickbacks, some dating back to 1990s - so some accused will be extradited to the U.S. eventually. Another one was launched by Switzerland and is about mismanagement and money laundering when it comes to World Cups 2018 and 2022 in Russia and Qatar. Paul Nicholson, editor of, is In the Now.

Welcome To The Recovery 2015: JP Morgan To Fire 5000 | Zero Hedge

In the latest example of just how strong America’s double-adjusted economic ‘recovery’ truly is, JP Morgan is set to layoff some 5,000 employees.
The cuts, which will amount to around 2% of the bank’s total workforce over the course of the next 12 months, come as the bank seeks to pare its reliance on human tellers, favoring machines at its nearly 6,000 branches. However, WSJ notes that the move will also affect workers across the bank’s business lines. Here’s more:
The layoffs on the other hand are more broad-based, affecting all four of the bank’s major business units: corporate and investment banking, consumer and community banking, asset management and commercial banking. Some employees in the “controls” part of the bank, such as those in legal or compliance, will also be affected as the bank trims departments that have grown dramatically over the past few years, people familiar with the matter said.

J.P. Morgan hasn’t detailed the layoffs previously, but did broadly discuss expense cuts in a February presentation to investors. At least 1,000 of the 5,000 layoffs have already been carried out in the past few months, but more are expected as the bank continues to slim expenses in an effort to meet profitability goals, one of the people added.
We suppose cuts to legal and compliance department should come as no surprise, because as we reported last month, the bank is set to implement a new program whereby algos will root out problem employees before regulatory infractions are even committed.

Hebron - Soldiers threaten repeat research of Abu Haya home; return the next day


Footage of one incident in a saga of harassment the Abu Haya family in Hebron underwent at the hands of soldiers in April 2015. On the evening of 9 April 2015 soldiers arrived at the Abu Haya home. After the soldiers spoke with Mahmoud Abu Haya, they told him to show his ID card. They checked it and then left the house, informing the family they would return the following day. This they did, going up to the roof of the house and leaving shortly thereafter.

War Crime: Israeli Army Commander Recorded Ordering Attack on Gaza Clinic | Global Research - Centre for Research on Globalization

War Crime: Israeli Army Commander Recorded Ordering Attack on Gaza Clinic | Global Research - Centre for Research on Globalization

The destruction caused by Israel in the Shujaiya neighborhood of Gaza during July 2014. (Anne Paq /ActiveStills)
An Israeli military commander has been recorded ordering troops to shell medical facilities during the 2014 attack on Gaza.
Nerya Yeshurun, a lieutenant colonel, instructed that a clinic in the Shujaiya neighborhood be fired upon on 23 July last year to “honor” an Israeli soldier who had been killed a day earlier.  His statement amounts to a clear, though perhaps unintended, admission of war crimes.
Targeting civilians as an act of revenge is strictly forbidden by international law. Although Yeshurun’s orders were broadcast by the Israeli media at the time, they have not been translated before now. It is remarkable that they did not elicit comment either within Israel or internationally.
In an address over an internal army communications network, Yeshurun told his troops to “shoot a fusilade to honor and salute” Dima Levitas, a 26-year-old captian allegedly killed by sniper fire the previous day. Yeshurun instructed that the “fusilade” be directed “at the clinic from which the villains shot at him [Levitas] and took his life.”
“Prepare for shooting in memory of Dima,” Yeshurun added. “May his soul be bundled up in the bundle of life, Amen.” The funeral of Levitas was taking place at the military graveyard in Mount Herzl, Jerusalem, that day.
Yeshurun’s address was uploaded the next day by NRG, a news website owned by the US casino magnate Sheldon Adelson.
According to names and figures collected by the Palestinian Centre for Human Rightsand reported by the media, at least five people were killed, four of whom were civilians, and 45 injured during the afternoon of 23 July in Shujaiya. However, it is unclear if their deaths were a direct result of the army’s ceremonious shelling.
The attack on the clinic took place while medics and civil forces in Shujaiya were still retrieving bodies of Palestinians who had been killed by Israel in an overnight massacre three days earlier. The bodies were mangled and badly charred; some victims’ identities impossible to determine. The number of people killed in that massacre has beenestimated at more than 120.

It's Official: Avago Buys Broadcom In $37 Billion Deal, Thousands In Employee Layoff "Synergies" Imminent | Zero Hedge

It's Official: Avago Buys Broadcom In $37 Billion Deal, Thousands In Employee Layoff "Synergies" Imminent | Zero Hedge

As the WSJ reported yesterday when it sent the semiconductor space soaring, moments ago Avago (21x EV/EBITDA) confirmed it would buy Broadcom (19x EV/EBITDA) for $37 billion.  The reason for the deal: as the WSJ noted yesterday, "growth has been hard to come by for Broadcom, a 24-year-old company that makes communications chips for tablets and smartphones, and supplies the Internet links for cable-television and telecommunications devices." Or, in other words, only a delusional, yield-chasing bond holder would be willing to fund (with other people's money) the 18.9x Broadcom EV/EBITDA take out price and just like in the oil and E&P space, when organic growth dries out, there is always zero cost debt to extend the dream a little longer.
Neither Avago nor Broadcom has the kind of dominance over individual markets that better-known rivals such as Intel Corp. and Qualcomm Inc. enjoy, and a merger could help address that. In addition to consumer applications, Broadcom supplies the vast majority of chips used in the latest networking switches found in corporate data centers, a fast-growing business that could enhance Avago’s communications-focused revenue stream.

Broadcom was co-founded by a team led by engineers Henry Samueli, who remains chairman and chief technology officer, and Henry Nicholas III, a former chief executive who stepped down in 2003. Mr. Nicholas held about 25% of Broadcom’s voting shares as of the end of March, according to the company’s most recent proxy statement. Mr. Samueli held about 22%.

Avago once was part of Agilent Technologies Inc., which spun off from H-P in 1999. Agilent later sold what’s now Avago to private-equity firms Silver Lake, and KKR & Co. in a $2.66 billion buyout.
As to why Avago is likewise excited to close the deal, "Avago has been likened to health-care companies such as Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc. that are based in foreign tax jurisdictions and also have become voracious acquirers."
As such Broadcom is merely the latest notch on the bedpost, funded of course with billions in new debt.
As for Broadcom's 10,650's employees and Avago's 8,400 workers, please familiarize yourselves with the definition of "synergies" of which the combined company says there will be some $750 million in 18 months which should translate to about 2-3,000 pink slips.

Greece Owes $1.2 Billion To Drugmakers As Government Can No Longer Afford Basic Medical Supplies | Zero Hedge

Greece Owes $1.2 Billion To Drugmakers As Government Can No Longer Afford Basic Medical Supplies | Zero Hedge

Talks between Greece and its creditors went full-retard on Wednesday when the following soundbite from Canada’s FinMin Joe Oliver hit the wires:
“No Greek payment to IMF would be default to IMF”
That seemed self-evident to us, but in a world governed by debt, we suppose everyone occasionally needs to remind themselves that failure to make good on one’s obligations constitutes default.
In any event, Greece apparently owes quite a bit of money to the world’s drug suppliers because, as we reported earlier this week, Athens is now running short on bed sheets and painkillers in its hospitals as the consequences of being completely beholden to the ”institutions” which control the printing of a fiat currency become increasingly clear.
Here’s what we said on Sunday:
The idea that a developed country cannot provide basic emergency medical care because it is in poor standing with the institutions that print a fiat currency is patently absurd and simply isn't tenable meaning that one way or another, this 'situation' will resolve itself in the coming weeks, an event which will put Europe's broken bond markets to a rather difficult test.
And now, we get this from Reuters:
Cash-strapped Greece has racked up mounting debts with international drugmakers and now owes the industry more than 1.1 billion euros ($1.2 billion), a leading industry official said on Wednesday.

The rising unpaid bill reflects the growing struggle by the nearly bankrupt country to muster cash, and creates a dilemma for companies under moral pressure not to cut off supplies of life-saving medicines.

Richard Bergstrom, director general of the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations, told Reuters his members had not been paid by Greece since December 2014. They are owed money by both hospitals and state-run health insurer EOPYY.

Ceres: An Electrically Scarred World | Space News


In April of 2015, the NASA Dawn Spacecraft began transmitting new, close-up images of the mysterious dwarf planet Ceres. The images to date have only deepened the mystery surrounding the puzzling bright spots on the planet’s surface. However, in addition to this ongoing puzzle, questions remain about Ceres that planetary scientists seem unready to ask. The surface of Ceres is massively cratered, with a variety of types of craters, including so-called bulls-eye craters (craters with central craters), craters with central peaks, and weird hexagonal craters, such as those seen on Mars, Mercury, and the Saturnian moon Mimas. Dawn’s exploration of Ceres is a startling reminder of just how inadequately the modern theory of planetary cratering explains what we actually see on planets and moons.

Ten FBI Agents Joining Oakland Police Department | East Bay Express

Ten FBI Agents Joining Oakland Police Department | East Bay Express

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is committing $110,000 toward the creation of a state-of-the-art center for investigations in the Oakland Police Department, according to a briefing provided by OPD and the FBI at the Oakland City Council's public safety committee meeting last night. The FBI funds will support the buildout of a $173,000 work space inside OPD's Police Administration Building, and officials said the center will utilize the latest technologies to analyze social networks and track persons of interest across state lines. The joint effort will bring as many as ten FBI agents into OPD’s criminal investigations division to expand the department’s investigative capacity.

The new facility will include twelve computer workstations with access to FBINet, the bureau’s classified intranet. According to a 2007 General Accounting Office report to Congress, FBINet "communicates secret information, including investigative case files and intelligence pertaining to national security," and has been a critical tool in the creation of so-called fusion centers that collect and share law enforcement information between federal, state and local agencies.

FIFA Arrests for Corruption Charges


FIFA's headquarters in Zurich was raided on Wednesday by Swiss authorities who arrested seven people. The top officials arrested are among 14 indicted on corruption charges following a US investigation, according to the US Department of Justice.
The indictment alleges corruption that is rampant, systemic, and deep-rooted including allegations of accepting bribes estimated at more than $150m over a 24-year period, and charges of racketeering, wire fraud and money laundering conspiracy. The next step in the FIFA corruption investigation is extradition to the US. We look at the story on the Lip News with Jose Marcelino and Jo Ankier.

The Real Story Behind Deutsche Bank's Latest Book Cooking Settlement | Zero Hedge

The Real Story Behind Deutsche Bank's Latest Book Cooking Settlement | Zero Hedge

Back in late 2012 it came to light that Deutsche Bank may have hidden more than $10 billion in crisis-era paper losses on derivatives deals the bank struck with Canadian issuers of asset-backed commercial paper.
Essentially, the bank bought insurance policies on corporate credit from Canadian special purpose vehicles who were allowed to leverage the trades 10X. When credit spreads blew out in the wake of BNP Paribas’ move to freeze 3 of its ABS funds in August of 2007, the value of that protection ballooned, but because the bank had allowed its counterparties to leverage the trades, and because the non-recourse deals allowed the Canadian SPVs to simply walk away without meeting margin calls, the German lender was underwater to the tune of billions. 
The loss, had it been recognized, would likely have forced the bank to seek a government bailout during the financial crisis, but Deutsche Bank essentially ignored it until several former employees blew the whistle (literally).
Now, Deutsche has reportedly settled the case for the paltry sum of $55 million and as with any other TBTF settlement, no actual people will be held accountable. Here’s WSJ with more:
Deutsche Bank AG has agreed to pay $55 million to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to settle allegations it hid paper losses of more than $1.5 billion during the financial crisis that began in 2008.

The giant German lender said it didn’t admit or deny the allegations and that no charges were brought against individuals in the matter.

“The SEC acknowledged the bank’s cooperation throughout the investigation,” Deutsche Bank said in a statement Tuesday.

The SEC said in a separate statement Deutsche Bank has underestimated certain risks by between $1.5 billion and $3.3 billion…

The allegations behind the settlement announced Tuesday date to late 2008 and early 2009. A whistleblower at the time alleged the bank didn’t update the market value of certain credit default swap transactions, known as super senior trades. The whistleblower alleged the bank thereby masked mounting losses as the market value sank.

Deutsche Bank said Tuesday that it didn’t update the transactions’ market value because it believed at the time that there was no reliable method for measuring them amid illiquid market conditions during the crisis. The bank said it had since enhanced policies, procedures and internal controls regarding the valuation of illiquid assets.

Stefan Krause, an executive at Deutsche Bank who was finance chief at the time of the alleged mispricing, said in late 2013 that “the bank valuations and financial reporting were proper during the period in question and the allegations of fraud are wholly unfounded.”
In fact the allegations were not "wholly unfounded" at all. For those interested to know the whole story, including how the bank was able to escape with such a small fine, read on.

night in a world that resembles the current reality, and you wake up
Monday morning and everything has changed. You will be locked into your
position. Markets are closed. . . . Think about the brokers or banks
that have a huge amount of derivatives. . . . The top two banks in the
world alone have $150 trillion in derivatives. The amount of collateral
they need to post to keep the game going overnight could be in the
