The System Is About to Burst Open: TRILLIONS In Unfunded Pensions “Foreshadow A Bleak Future”

by Shaun Bradley, via SHTF Plan:
For millions of public sector workers in the U.S., state-run pension funds are the only chance left for a comfortable retirement. In the hopes of providing a stable future for their families, an entire generation was duped into putting decades of their earnings into these supposedly ‘risk-free’ investments. Unfortunately, those who have entrusted the government to manage their life savings may end up destitute as a result.
Budgetary shortfalls that have plagued Detroit for years are now spreading to other municipalities. Since 2008, six local governments have been forced to renegotiate their debts in bankruptcy court, with many others on the same trajectory. The scale of the problem has been repeatedly understated by the media, but across the nation, a somber reality is beginning to set in.

Top Ex-White House Economist Admits 94% Of All New Jobs Under Obama Were Part-Time

We find that 94% of net job growth in the past decade was in the alternative work category,” said Obama's former top White House economist Alan Krueger. In other words, nearly all of the 10 million jobs created between 2005 and 2015 were not traditional nine-to-five employment, but low-paying temp, on-call, contract workers, independent contractors or freelancers.

Obama Administration Abstains, Defying Trump, As UN Votes To Condemn Israel Settlements

Israel lashed out at the Obama administration "friends don't act that way" after Ambassador Power abstained (refusing to veto) as The United Nations passed a resolution demanding Israel to stop settlement building on occupied Palestinian territory. As NYTimes notes, the administration’s decision not to veto the measure broke a longstanding American tradition of serving as Israel’s sturdiest diplomatic shield, and defied extraordinary pressure from President-elect Trump.

Five 3-Standard-Deviation Price-Moves Post-Election

Chinese Military Said To Hack FDIC For Years, Including Computer Of Sheila Bair

While the Russian government allegedly has a grudge on US voters and, according to the serious press, orchestrated the hacking of the US elections, China's interests are focused more on America's money. In the latest such breach, according to Reuters, the FBI is investigating how Chinese military hackers infiltrated computers at the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation for several years beginning in 2010.

Aussie Dollar Tanks After China Admits Growth Will Miss 6.5% Target

With fears mounting over China's debt load sustainability, and amid yet another liquidity crisis, President Xi Jinping appeared to admit that China's economic growth will slow below the government’s 6.5% target. Despite the promise of creating a "modestly prosperous society," Xi warned that China doesn’t need to meet the objective if doing so creates too much risk - a little late for that after trillions of freshly created credit was spewed into zombified firms this year - but at least reality is starting to set in.

Overwhelming Consensus: Trump Is a Marked Man

by Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show:
In at least three articles that I have written since the election, I have said that the globalists have a three step plan to stop the present populust movement which will result in the removal of Trump from American politics once and for all. I stated that the globalist plot against Trump and the American people consists of (1) the ridiculous and illegal recount effort in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania; (2) the bribery of electors, by George Soros; and, (3) assassination.

Fight Your Sickness by Making Your Own DIY All-Natural Cough Syrup

by Amy Goodrich, Natural News:
As we are nearing the end of the year, the flu and cold season is kicking into high gear. While it isn’t the cold weather itself that makes you sick – you can get a cold year-round – most people tend to get sick during the winter months.
Most germs that cause the common cold spread more quickly in cold, dry air. Furthermore, during the winter months, people spend more time indoors and closer to each other, which makes it easier for the bacteria and viruses to spread.

The People of Germany Turn on The Elites’ Puppet, Angela Merkel, as Anger Rises – Nathan McDonald

by Nathan McDonald, Sprott Money:
Outrage and anger – this is a subject that we see over and over again as of lately. These emotions are what gave rise to BREXIT, they are what gave rise to the victory of Donald Trump and they are exactly why Germany and France are next on the list to be toppled and set free by liberty lovers.
The globalist puppets who have been installed around the world are either falling in rapid succession, or they are being replaced as each election comes and goes. Angela Merkel, the Chancellor of Germany, is one of the next puppets that I see falling, as I have written about many times recently.
The recent terrorist attack in Germany by a refugee while people were out simply attempting to enjoy their holidays and do some Christmas shopping for their families and friends is not going to help her odds of being re-elected in any way, shape or form.

Amri is the main suspect in the Berlin Christmas Market massacre. The Islamist killer plowed through a crowded Berlin Christmas market killing 11 and injuring another 49.

Peace on Earth: Thank Baby Jesus and Mother Russia the Washington/GCC Backed Jihadists Lost Their War on Christmas in Aleppo

from Rogue Money:
Hundreds of residents gathered at Al Azizieh Square in western Aleppo on Tuesday, to watch the Christmas tree lights being turned on, in an attempt to establish some sense of normality in a city that has been a focal point of the Syrian conflict. [Note the flags of the Russian Federation and Hezbollah alongside those of the Syrian Arab Republic – JWS]
A video is worth a thousand words.
Well, pilgrims, this is the Aziziya neighborhood in West Aleppo. It is a very multi-confessional district. I particularly like the brass band in Santa suits. They appear to be playing the Syrian National Anthem. Note the two comely teen aged girl scouts standing near the band. The display of flags is interesting; Syria, Russia, Hizbullah. One of our German correspondents on SST informed us the other day that there are now some Christian members of Hizbullah, the Lebanese Shia militia. This would make sense because after the 2006 war against Israel Hizbullah assigned priority of its own reconstruction money to Christians in south Lebanon. The tree has a Lebanese cedar emblem on it so I suppose it came from there. The MSM portrays Aleppo as a smoking ruin. What do you say about this, [(P)MSNBC’s Morning] Joe

U.S. and China on Collision Course

by Jim Rickards, DailyReckoning:
China’s capital and currency markets are on a collision course with the U.S., and by extension, the entire world. Economists are fond of saying if something can’t go on forever, it won’t. That truism applies to China.
Huge profits will be made by those who see this China train wreck coming and act in time.
The idea of economic stress in China sounds strange to most ears. China has come from the chaos of the Cultural Revolution to the world’s largest economy measured on a purchasing power parity basis in just 35 years. Even using nominal GDP, my preferred metric, it is the world’s second largest economy.

Strongest Gold “Buy” Signal In 16 Years

by Dave Kranzler, Investment Research Dynamics:
When gold is accepted as the medium of exchange by most or all nations, an unhampered free international gold standard serves to foster a world-wide division of labor and the broadest international trade. Even though the units of exchange (the dollar, the pound, the franc, etc.) differ from country to country, when all are defined in terms of gold the economies of the different countries act as one-so long as there are no restraints on trade or on the movement of capital. – Alan Greenspan, “Gold And Economic Freedom,” 1966
Anyone who was involved in the financial markets during Greenspan’s tenure as Chairman of the Federal Reserve would be shocked to see that comment above coming from Greenspan. He was, after all, the king of the printing press until his successor, Ben Bernanke took over the role of chief money and credit creator.
