Former Reagan Budget Director Warns ‘ALL HELL TO BREAK LOOSE’ Investigative Report from Dent Research
“It’s one of the scariest moments in our history,” warns Ronald Reagan’s former Budget Advisor, David Stockman, during a recent video interview that tackles concerns over the future of America’s economy.
“The only way to correct this is to let this bubble burst” adds Harry Dent, the famed Harvard economist.
Not missing a beat, Stockman adds, “No central bank has ever printed this much money this long, kept interest rates at zero, and fueled so much speculation . . . they’ve painted themselves in a corner, they’re playing it day by day, and they’re going to make a HUGE mistake!”
Stockman’s controversial statement is causing an uproar from Wall Street and politicians on both sides of the aisle.
Convinced that the entire “economic recovery” is fake . . . that it has merely been propped up by reckless money printing, interest rate cuts, and bailouts for Wall Street . . . Stockman is urging average Americans to prepare for an unstoppable economic collapse.
Stockman is calling the crisis “Sundown in America” as a contrast to the “Sunrise in America” that he and President Reagan built from 1981-1984.
Harry Dent’s concern is that the government’s unprecedented intervention through QE (Quantitative Easing) and other measures is creating the worst case scenario. Which is why his next words painfully hang in the air:
“The next crash is going to be worse than the last one.”
Considering that Dent is known worldwide for his uncanny boom and bust calls over the last 30 years, one should pay careful attention to his new warnings that the stock market will collapse by 70%, that real estate will plunge by 40%, and that unemployment will spike up to 15%.
Neither economist minces words when they place the blame squarely on Federal Reserve and their political cohorts who have enacted dangerous policies to benefit Wall Street over Main Street.
“They brought in the foxes — like Goldman Sachs — to look over the henhouse!” Dent says, throwing his hands in the air as he comments on the brazen policies forced on the American public after the 2008 crash.
Stockman chimes in “All the cheap money has stayed in the canyons of Wall Street where the speculators can access it day after day . . . that’s called arbitrage.”
However, all is not lost if you prepare now, both economists state. In the video, they give practical advice viewers can use for their investments, career, education, and retirement.
“You can do plenty of things,” Dent says, “But you’re going to have to do it. Your stock broker is not going to do it for you. Government isn’t going to warn you. Nobody is going to protect you, and nobody is going to stop this bubble from bursting because every single bubble in history has burst. And this is one of the biggest.”

Schumer: Proposed USDA funding cuts will jeopardize fight against ‘worst outbreak of bird flu in a generation’
Sen. Chuck Schumer is calling on Congress to restore $500 million in recent cuts to the United States Department of Agriculture’s funding to help battle “the worst bird flu outbreak in a generation.”
The current avian influenza H5N2 outbreak in the U.S.has killed more than 48 million birds in 15 states since first detected on Dec. 19 2014.
No cases have been reported in New York or in any state along the East Coast. Iowa has been hit the hardest, with more than 31.7 million birds dead. The bird flu has spread rapidly. In April, there were fewer than 1 million cases reported.
This is one of the worst cases of bird flu the country has ever seen, Schumer said. In fact, many American farmers have never had to deal with such an outbreak and scientists are still researching how exactly it spreads, he said. Industry analysts predict this latest outbreak could stretch for another 18-24 months.
Right now, there is no effective vaccines for the highly pathogenic avian influenza, Schumer said. The vaccine currently available offers just 60 percent effectiveness, meaning that 4 in 10 birds will remain unprotected.
The recently proposed cuts to USDA research funding comes at the worst time, Schumer said in a press release yesterday. It will starve the agency from the funding it needs to combat avian influenza, according to the senator. The USDA research funds slashed by Congress could help pay for efforts like vaccination development against the bird flu, ‘biosecurity’ measures that help farmers reduce the spread of the deadly disease, USDA response measures, and understanding how the virus is transmitted, Schumer said.
Approximately 80 percent of birds affected by avian influenza have been egg-laying hens. Nationwide, approximately 10 percent of all egg-laying hens have been infected.
As the egg supply has fallen, the wholesale and retail prices of eggs and egg products have risen.
The average price per dozen has nearly doubled since the end of May, Schumer said. The New York Times reported that the average wholesale price for one dozen eggs in New York will range from $1.60 to $1.66, which breaks the 2014 record of $1.42. In New York City, the current average price of a dozen eggs is $4.08. In local supermarkets, the current price of a dozen eggs ranges from $2.99 to $3.89.
Restaurants and other food producers are also feeling the effects of the egg shortage. For instance, “breaker” eggs, which are sold in liquid form to restaurants and packaged-food-producers, including McDonald’s, increased by 273 percent, Schumer said. According to the New York Times,companies including Panera Bread and General Mills have said they are seeking other supplies and substitute ingredients because of the egg shortage.
Last week we had shark attacks in South Carolina Waters, the week before that we had flesh eating bacteria on Fort Meyers Beach, Florida and now on the Gulf Coast!
This is not the time for the leisurely walk on the beach! EWWW!
Over the past several weeks, rain has carried waste from upstream and dumped it into the Gulf of Mexico. Seventeen beaches in Galveston County had high levels of fecal bacteria Tuesday morning, but by late afternoon, that number had dropped to three after another round of testing.
But while testing in the county is finding indicators of high levels of fecal bacteria, tourists aren’t staying out of the water.

Less than one week after noted author and Bible scholar Chuck Missler declared on Jim Bakker’s daily national program that President Obama is a Sunni muslim this is reported today by the Associated Press:
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama said Monday that Americans stand united in rejecting the targeting of any religious or ethnic group as he marked Islam’s holy month of Ramadan.
Obama opened the White House to Muslim Americans for a traditional iftar dinner, which follows daily fasting from dawn to sunset. Ramadan ends with the Islamic holiday of Eid al-Fitr.
“We affirm that whatever our faith, we’re all one family,” Obama said at the East Room dinner attended by about 40 members of the diplomatic community and a few members of Congress.
He recognized several young dinner guests, including Samantha Elauf, who went to the Supreme Court to defend her right to wear a headscarf, or hijab. She was 17 in 2008 when she was rejected for a sales job at an Abercrombie Kids store in Tulsa, Oklahoma, after wearing a hijab to the interview.
“She was determined to defend the right to wear a hijab — to have the same opportunities as everybody else,” Obama said. “She went all the way to the Supreme Court — which I didn’t do at her age — and she won.”
Obama spoke of three young Muslims who were killed Feb. 10 in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, and the nine black church members killed last week in Charleston, South Carolina.
“As Americans, we insist that nobody should be targeted because of who they are, what they look like, who they love, how they worship,” he said. “We stand united against these hateful acts.”
ISIS and the Spirit of ISLAM: Bad to the Bone!
The Islamic State group has released a video showing the jihadists murdering 16 men by drowning some in a cage, decapitating others with explosives, and firing a rocket-propelled grenade into a car.
The video, apparently shot in Iraq’s Nineveh province, was one of the most brutal yet in a series released by the terrorists of killings of opponents in areas under IS control.
IS has executed hundreds of people by gunfire, dozens by beheading, stoned some to death, thrown others from buildings and burned a captured Jordanian pilot alive.
Videos of the killings are a key propaganda tool of the jihadists, used to shock and terrify their enemies as well as to draw in new recruits seeking the most brutal and active militant group.
The men killed in the latest video are said to be “spies”, with some of them making recorded “confessions”.

1000 Days in Iranian Prison
Fox news reported this morning that American Pastor Saeed Abedini has now spent 1,000 days in captivity in Iran – nearly three years suffering in prison – separated from his wife, Naghmeh, and their two young children.
No one could have imagined that he would be imprisoned this long when he was taken into custody by Iranian authorities in 2012 simply because of his Christian faith. Pastor Saeed was in Iran working on an orphanage when he was unexpectedly taken into custody by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard.
In January 2013, Pastor Saeed was convicted of undermining the national security of Iran for gathering with Christians in private homes from 2000 to 2005. He was sentenced to 8-years in prison.
Pastor Saeed has endured much in the past 1,000 days. He still suffers from physical injuries that require much-needed medical attention – injuries received from past beatings by prison guards. He also faces psychological torture and as recently as a couple of weeks ago – he received another round of beatings – this time at the hands of fellow inmates instead of prison guards.
There has been little detailed news coming out of the State Department concerning anything much less letting the American people know if Abedini and the other American prisoners release is a non-negotiable term in the ongoing Iranian Nuclear negotiations. Be keeping this pastor and his family in prayers.
Keep your Eye on Israel:
Palestinians to submit first files to ICC in hopes of prompting case against Israel
The Palestinian Authority is set to submit their first files next week to the International Criminal Court to open a case against Israel, AFP reported on Thursday.
Their accusations against Israel include allegations of abuses which occurred in Gaza during last year’s war, and additional alleged crimes that have taken place in the Palestinian Authority territories since 2014.
The first files are to be submitted on June 25 for review by the board, Palestinian Authority official Ammar Hijazi was quoted as saying by AFP.
Hijazi stated that the file submitted is “only general, it’s only statistical,” and it does not include specific incidences as of yet. “But it certainly draws a grim picture of what Israel is doing and why we think that there are reasonable grounds… for the prosecutor to start investigations,” he added.
ICC Chief Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda must decide based on the complaint whether to order a preliminary examination and then a full criminal investigation.
In addition to the allegations submitted against Israel, Bensouda has also said she is considering opening war crimes investigations into the Palestinians themselves, which may turn the spotlight towards Hamas for their actions in last summer.’s Gaza conflict.
The Palestinian Authority formally joined the ICC on April 1 after signing the Rome Statute, which granted them membership to the International Criminal Court.
The ICC Prosecutor, not Palestine, decides whether or not to indict. To indict, the prosecutor would need to believe there is evidence beyond a reasonable doubt to convict – that there was essentially intent to murder, whereas many incidents in war are foggy and involve mere negligence or mistake.
Israel is not a party to the Rome Statute or the ICC and, like some other countries which have directly or indirectly ignored the ICC, could choose not to give its citizens or evidence over for trials.
UN’s Ban ‘deeply alarmed’ by suffering of children caused by IDF operations in Gaza
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon harshly critisized Israel on Thursday, saying that Israeli military operations had caused suffering to children in the Gaza Strip.
Ban’s comments came at at UN Security Council debate to discuss the latest United Nations report on children and armed conflict.
“I am also deeply alarmed at the suffering of so many children as a result of Israeli military operations in Gaza last year,” the UN chief said in reference to last summer’s Operation Protective Edge.
“I urge Israel to take concrete and immediate steps, including by reviewing existing policies and practices to protect and prevent the killing and maiming of children and to protect the special protections afforded to schools and hospitals,” Ban added.
Earlier Thursday, Israel accused a senior UN official of misconduct in preparing a report that harshly criticized the IDF over the 2014 Gaza war while leaving it off a blacklist of states and armed groups that violate children’s rights in conflict.
In the report, Ban said “the unprecedented and unacceptable scale of the impact on children in 2014 raises grave concerns about Israel’s compliance with international humanitarian law … (and) excessive use of force.”
Although formally presented in Ban’s name, the report was prepared by his envoy on children and armed conflict, Leila Zerrougui of Algeria.
Israeli UN Ambassador Ron Prosor accused her of “biased conduct against Israel.”

Florida Court Rules Off Grid Living Illegal:
Since that time, Speronis has been fighting the courts for her right live off the grid. Magistrate Harold Eskins recently ruled that she can live without using water or electricity, but she still has to be connected to these utilities no matter what. Despite his ruling, Eskins admitted to the press that the code may be unfair, “Reasonableness and code requirements don’t always go hand-in-hand.” Despite his supposed sympathies, he still feels compelled to enforce the code.
Still, Speronis has decided not to give up, and will continued to defend her case in court. Even if she doesn’t win, she has no plans to leave her home. “Even if they board the house up, I’m not leaving…They did the best they could when they took my dogs and arrested me. It fell apart because I’m unshakable.”
“A code enforcement officer came, knocked on the door then posts a placard that says uninhabitable property, do not enter,” says Robin as she reads the sign.
A Cape Coral code enforcement officer posted a “notice to vacate” one day after the FOX story aired.

White House: Second data hack might be bigger than first OPM breach
A second attempt to steal government information that was made public on Friday might be even bigger than the data breach that occurred when thieves hacked into the Office of Personnel Management in April, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said on Monday.
The second intrusion “involved a different system and a different set of data, and I think you could logically conclude that … a larger amount of data and information was potentially affected,” Earnest said. The second breach involved the scouring of information on military personnel seeking security clearances.
If the second data breach is in fact bigger, that would make it quite large. The first OPM data breach is thought to have successfully gained access to the basic personal information of about 4 million current and former federal workers. ( This number has since been challenged and is reported to be much much larger!)
The administration has refused to say who’s behind either breach, and says only that investigations are continuing. However, anonymous government officials and many lawmakers readily say the OPM hack was based in Beijing. National Security Advisor Susan Rice on Friday met with General Fan Changlong, vice chairman of the Central Military Commission of China, at the White House. According to a readout of their meeting provided by the White House, Rice “underscored the importance of strengthening risk reduction measures and narrowing areas of disagreement, including on maritime and cyber issues.”
The White House has been scrambling to take steps aimed at boosting cyber protections since the OPM hack was discovered in April. On Friday, the Office of Management and Budget issued a fact sheet announcing the 30-day “cybersecurity sprint” that U.S. Chief Information Officer Tony Scott “recently” launched.
“Federal departments and agencies have implemented capabilities to better manage cyber vulnerabilities when they arise, and agencies are instituting new methods of conducting business like requiring employees to log-on to networks using privileged credentials, instead of other less secure means of identification and authentication,” the OMB fact sheet read. “Still, recent events underscore the need to accelerate the Administration’s cyber strategy and confront aggressive, persistent malicious actors that continue to target our nation’s cyber infrastructure.”
Under this policy, all federal agencies must use indicators provided by the Homeland Security Department and immediately tell DHS if they detect malicious cyber activity; immediately act upon weekly vulnerability scan reports provided by DHS; limit the number of privileged users and functions that privileged users can perform; and deploy new authentication systems that make it harder for hackers to guess passwords.
A recent Government Accountability Office report declared that the number of “information security incidents” exploded over the last eight years. In 2006, 5,503 were reported, and 67,168 incidents were reported in fiscal 2014.

Cyberattack on USIS may have hit even more government agencies
After Falls Church, Va.-based USIS suffered the intrusion, the Office of Personnel Management and the Department of Homeland Security issued stop-work orders to the company. And eventually OPM, which conducts background checks for the overwhelming majority of the federal government, canceled USIS’s contracts, effectively putting the company out of business.
But now USIS has told Congress in a letter obtained by The Washington Post that the breach may have been even more damaging: OPM, two DHS agencies — Customs and Border Protection, and Immigration and Customs Enforcement — the U.S. Capitol Police and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency were all hit.
