Corrupt Or Just Stupid? Markets Hand Corporations An Unlimited Credit Card

The crucial thing to understand about credit bubble dynamics is that borrowing money from people desperate to lend and using the proceeds to overpay for assets requires only monkey-level intelligence. So while a bubble is inflating it’s impossible for most of the media, banking and political communities to tell the legitimate operators from the hopelessly corrupt and/or extremely stupid. That’s the world we’ve created by handing monetary printing presses to governments, and by extension to corporate CEOs.

Jim Sinclair Issues Bail-In Warning “This is the Second Significant Bank to Give This Notice”

by Jim Sinclair, Silver Doctors:
From Jim Sinclair, JSMineset:
Get ready, get set, then get bailed in to, so on top of insult comes injury.
It is a logical possibility you might end up owing money for the privilege of keeping any money in the bank.
This is the second significant bank to give this notice. What do you need? Twenty of them to make the same announcement? I would suggest a jog, not walk, to any bank you have money in and try to take out any meaningful amount of cash.
You are in for a surprise. Better to be first in line and the squeaky wheel, not last and begging. Gold and silver will maintain buying power in your hand. Cash is for transactions.
Have you been listening to my weekly exchange with Bill on the premium side? We have been focusing directly on this situation.

Frankincense Oil Kills Cancer Cells While Boosting the Immune System, Studies Show

by David Gutierrez, Natural News:
Frankincense is a powerful medicinal oil that can not only boost the immune system but also kill cancer cells, a number of studies have shown.
One of the most significant recent studies was conducted by researchers from the University of Leicester, England, in 2013. The researchers found that the naturally occurring frankincense compound acetyl-11-keto-beta-boswellic acid (AKBA) targeted and destroyed ovarian cancer cells. The findings were particularly significant because they showed that AKBA had this effect even in late-stage ovarian cancer patients, not just in laboratory trials performed on isolated cells.
“Frankincense is taken by many people with no known side effects,” lead researcher Kamla Al-Salmani said. This finding has enormous potential to be taken to a clinical trial in the future and developed into an additional treatment for ovarian cancer.

The Israeli Attack on the USS Liberty — Paul Craig Roberts

by Paul Craig Roberts, Paul Craig Roberts:
Introduction: For a number of years Admiral Thomas Moorer, former Chief of Naval Operations and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff was my colleague at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. Tom, after whom the F-14 Tomcat fighter is named, expressed to me his concern that US politics and foreign policy was in the clutches of Israel and that America was being led into war with the Arab Middle East. Admiral Moorer and the State Department and Pentagon at that time did not think that war with the Arab countries served the interests of the United States. However, Admiral Moorer thought that the war could not be avoided because of the hold Israel has over the US government.
What convinced him of this was Washington’s coverup of the 1967 Israeli attack on the USS Liberty which resulted in 208 killed and wounded Americans. Tom was disheartened that Admiral John S. McCain Jr., the father of the current US senator, for career reasons had cooperated with the coverup. Tom worried that careerism had destroyed the integrity of the US military.
