More economic indicators are showing the economy is collapsing at an accelerated pace. The job numbers came in and the unemployment rate came down to 4.5% with less people getting jobs and more people losing jobs. The retail industry is a complete disaster, and many retailers are going bankrupt. There is nobody left to purchase treasuries, so the treasury is now the buyer. Traders are worried about volatility and they are purchasing insurance. Trump launched missiles into Syria under the false story that Assad used chemical weapons. The deep state is pushing their agenda to get the world into war. The base the missiles hit was reported to be damaged but from drone footage it shows there is was no damage to the runway. Many of the missiles didn’t hit their targets, was this because the S200, 300 or 400 missile systems intercepted the missiles or did Russia jam them. Be prepared because the deep state is not finished.

Current News – 04.07.2017

- There were no changes to the participation rate, which remained at 63%
- March saw the worst job gains since May 2016, with only 98,000 jobs added. While many have claimed it was the weather’s fault, the BLS reported that 164K people said they were unable to work in March due to poor weather conditions.
- manufacturing sector, where last month’s gain of 26K jobs was revised to just 11K.
- Finally, everyone’s favorite job category, waiters and bartenders, aka “Food services and drinking places” leisure workers, continued their relentless rise, adding another 21.7K jobs in March.
- The retail sector slashed 30,000 jobs in March, said the Bureau of Labor Statistics on Friday. That brings the total number of jobs lost in retail in March and February to nearly 61,000 as the sector grapples with right-sizing their costs amid the shift to digital shopping.

- The UK’s Telegraph just published an analysis of global debt that pretty much sums up the coming crisis. Here’s an excerpt with a couple of the more hair-raising charts:
- Global debt has climbed at an “eye-watering” pace over the past decade, soaring to a fresh high of £170 trillion last year, according to the Institute of International Finance (IIF).
- The IIF said total debt levels, including household, government and corporate debt, climbed by more than $70 trillion over the last 10 years to a record high of $215 trillion (£173 trillion) in 2016 – or the equivalent of 325pc of global gross domestic product (GDP).
- It said emerging markets posed “a growing source of concern” to financial stability and the global economy as debt burdens in these countries climb at a rapid pace.
- Outstanding government debt in the US and UK has more than doubled since 2006, data shows, while Japan and the eurozone have seen a 50pc increase.
- These numbers are astounding. Emerging market debt was $7.4 trillion in 1996, and today it’s $55 trillion. US and UK government debt has doubled – from already historically-high levels — since 2006.
- And there’s no end in sight. Japan just passed a record-high government budget, 35% of which will be borrowed. The US added $1.3 trillion to its federal debt in 2016 and is debating massive increases in defense and infrastructure spending. China’s corporate debt alone exceeds 170% of GDP.
- Which leads to three inescapable conclusions:
- 1) Interest rates can never rise because rolling over this much debt at historically-normal rates would blow up the budgets of both the developed and developing worlds.2) The only solution – if you can call it that – is massive currency devaluation to make these debts manageable.3) Since the debt binge has apparently gone parabolic, the reckoning is fairly close at hand.
- Remember when the Fed was “data dependent”? Well, if the Atlanta Fed is right, Janet Yellen will have hiked the Fed’s interest rate in a quarter in which GDP has grown by a paltry 0.6%, down from 1.2% as of its latest estimate. If confirmed, this would be the lowest quarterly GDP growth in three years, since Q1 of 2014.
- the latest rumor mill would suggest that Bannon finds himself in the midst of an epic fight for survival with none other than Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner.
Jared Kushner seizes control over structuring government at home and America’s public face aboard.
Ivanka Trump adviser Dina Powell is named Deputy National Security Adviser, and keeps her portfolio as senior counselor for economic initiatives.
A top aide to Trump said he’s contemplating major changes, but that the situation is very fluid and the timing uncertain: “Things are happening, but it’s very unclear the president’s willing to pull that trigger.”
- US formally entered the Great War on April 6, 1917, with President Woodrow Wilson pledging to make the world “safe for democracy.”
- Wilson frames war as democracy vs. tyranny
- Wilson appeared to have underestimated the Americans’ enthusiasm for war, as only 73,000 men volunteered for military service within the six weeks of the declaration of war. In response, the administration enacted the May 18 Selective Service Act, introducing limited conscription.
Apr 6th 1917: Germans living in the Washington DC area warned to “obey the law and keep their mouths shut”.
- The overall response to Trump’s unilateral actions last night is a positive one –
- Senator Rubio said Russia was ‘complicit in war crimes’ and that we needed to stop worrying about what they thought of all this. They need to fear us.
- VP candidate, Tim Kaine is ‘heartened’ by the President’s actions and wants him to set up a military safe zone in Northern Syria. We need to grab some clay. Rubio is here.
- Congressman Walter B. Jones released the following statement regarding the launch of U.S. airstrikes in Syria:
- “Regardless of the circumstances, no American president has the constitutional right to commit acts of war against a sovereign nation without approval from Congress,” said Congressman Jones. “As clearly stated in the Constitution, Congress has the sole power to declare war. This is a dangerous precedent for the president to set for the new administration.”
- US Senator Ben Cardin said
- Cardin stressed that if President Donald Trump is going to continue airstrikes in Syria, he must get an authorization from the Congress for the use of force.
- Secretary of State Rex Tillerson confirmed on Thursday night that President Vladimir Putin was not given advance notice of the United States’ decision to strike a Syrian target with missiles.
- “No contacts were made with Moscow, with President Putin,” Tillerson told reporters during a briefing with National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.
- He blamed the Russians for failing to prevent the use of chemical weapons in Syria, calling them “complicit or incompetent,” which is why the United States took action.
- According to the Pentagon, Russian ground forces in the area were given a “deconfliction” notice prior to the attack.
- The U.S. Navy fired more than 50 tomahawk cruise missiles at the Shayrat Airbase this morning, causing significant damage to this military installation in the eastern countryside of the Homs Governorate.
- What we know so far:
- U.S. missiles struck Shayrat’s airfields, aircraft hangar, and fuel tankers
- Destroyed fuel tankers caused several explosions and a large fire that has not been put out yet
- At least 15 fighter jets have been damaged or destroyed
- One fighter pilot was killed – several others wounded
- Russians were present at the airbase when it was attacked
- Update: there are now reports of four deaths.
- Runway still intact, air bunkers still intact
- Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has said the US air strike on a Syrian air base came “within an inch” of militarily clash
- He said the action taken by the Americans was in breach of international law and their own internal procedures, and accused Washington of “barely avoiding combat clashes with Russia”.
- The US missile strike against Syria’s facilities was an act of aggression and impairs both Russian-US relations and the key goal of fighting international terrorism,
“Putin believes that the total disregard for the use of chemical weapons by terrorists only exacerbates the situation significantly,” Peskov went on to say. “Putin also sees the strikes on Syria by the US as an attempt to divert the attention of the international community from numerous civilian casualties in Iraq.”
- Russia’s S-400 and S-300 anti-missile complexes are among the systems providing protection for its military bases in Syria, the Defense Ministry said following Washington’s missile attack.
- The S-400 Triumph missile system and the Pantsir complex, which is a short to medium range surface-to-air missile and anti-aircraft artillery weapon system, are ensuring the protection of Russia’s Air Force at the Khmeimim airbase in Syria
- Additional defense systems, including S-300 complexes, have been deployed to provide “guaranteed” cover for a station in the Syrian port of Tartus that provides technical support for the Russian Navy, Konashenkov added.
- While the Pantsir complexes protect the Russian military and its infrastructure from lower-flying missiles, Russia also has Bastion coastal defense missile systems in Syria that can engage a target both in the water and on land at a distance of up to 450 kilometers (280 miles).
- At the same time, Syria’s S-200 air defense systems have been restored with Russia’s help, TASS reported, adding that those complexes are also deployed to provide protection for the Russian military in eastern Syria.
- The Russian ministry of defence said in a statement that “to protect key Syrian infrastructure a range of measures will be taken reinforce and improve the effectiveness of the Syrian armed forces air defence.” Russia announced it had halted its air safety agreement with the US, meant to avoid “air incidents” with the US over Syria, saying US air strikes had caused “considerable” damage to Moscow-Washington relations. The memorandum, signed in October 2015, was designed to avoid clashes in the crowded airspace over Syria, with each side giving the other warning over planned strikes.
- “According to our sources, only 23 of them reached the Syrian airbase,” Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Major-General Igor Konashenkov said, adding that the points of impact of the other 36 cruise missiles remain unknown.
- Russia’s Foreign Ministry spokeswoman has said that the “gas attack” in Syria’s Idlib province was a convenient excuse to justify US strikes
- Russia’s Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said that the US missile strikes against Syria were planned well in advance of the alleged “gas attack” in Idlib province
- It is obvious that these missile strikes were planned before. For every expert it is obvious that this decision was made well in advance and before the Idlib events.
- Journalism is the first casualty of wars, propaganda substituting for truth-telling.
- The war in Syria has shifted from Obama’s war, to Trump’s war.
- In the video below, Sean Hannity asks Marco Rubio what response he expects from Syria in retaliation for the Tomahawk missile attack today.
- Marco says he expects targeting of our troops in Syria at about 2:50 in this video:
- what we should expect to see next is the false flag killing (or the hoaxed story of killing) of some of our Special Ops troops in Syria. This will serve as the justification for the toppling of Assad and the overthrow of the Syrian government.
- Remember, it was Marco who went to Syria with McCain and Graham. RED FLAG.
- Syrian warplanes took off from an air base which was hit by US cruise missiles on Friday, and carried out air strikes on rebel-held areas in the eastern Homs countryside, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.The US Navy had fired dozens of missiles at the air base near Homs city in response to a chemical attack this week which Washington and its allies blamed on the Damascus government.
- The British-based Observatory, a group monitoring the Syrian war using sources on the ground, said eight people had been killed in the US attack.
- The War Powers Act allows the President to deploy US forces to deal with an immediate threat to the United States without Congress, but that does not apply here. No Americans were killed in that supposed gas attack, nor was sovereign US territory invaded or damaged.
- A stunning update on Friday afternoon from the Associated Press said the Pentagon is investigating possible Russian participation in the Syrian regime’s chemical weapons attack.
- These officials also supported the dire suspicion that nearby hospitals were attacked to cover up evidence of the WMD deployment:
The officials say Russia has failed to control the Syrian government’s use of chemical weapons.
- The Trump administration is moving closer to its goal of creating “safe zones” within Syria. Though this strategy may be described as a humanitarian effort, the sizable increase in military presence that it will bring looks more like an invasion in disguise.
- Now, it appears that Tillerson and Mattis are quickly approaching the completion of their strategy for the establishment of Syrian “safe zones” after Tillerson recently confirmed the administration’s commitment to the measure in both Syria and Iraq at a summit held for a 68-member U.S.-led coalition that is targeting Daesh.
- Though the details of the plan have yet to be released, many members of the coalition and members of previous U.S. presidential administrations have voiced their concerns that “safe zones” would be ineffective, concerns that Trump himself once echoed in criticizing Hillary Clinton’s advocacy for such zones in the 2016 election.
- Zones Will Bring Large And Enduring Military Presence
- Considering that such “safe zones” will in no way guarantee safety of any kind and may be entirely impossible to implement due to Turkish-Kurdish tensions, the Trump administration’s commitment to such measures – along with other actions they have recently taken in the region – suggest that their real motivation is something else entirely.
- Most telling of all is the fact that the debate over safe zones has coincided with the increased movement of U.S. troops and military assets into Syria and Iraq, such as the U.S.’ recent deployment of 2,500 soldiers to both Iraq and Syria. In addition, the U.S. government has signaled that these troops will remain in those nations long after Daesh is no longer deemed a threat.
- For instance, hidden within the announcement of U.S. troop deployment in the Syrian city of Raqqa was the admission that the troops will be “required” to stabilize t
- the goal from the beginning was get assad and then go into iran, and eventually split up the middile east
- US has been sending troops and building bases for over year now, the runway was just hardened to bring in C17 transport aircraft. The C-17 commonly performs tactical and strategic airlift missions, transporting troops and cargo throughout the world; additional roles include medical evacuation and airdrop duties
- False flag chemical attack, evidence not produced, US rushes into a decision and does not get approval from congress. Amazing congress needs to approve the repeal of OBamacare but not striking another country and killing people.
- Trump announces that he made the decision to launch tomahawk missiles. Body language and tone didn’t seem to jive in what he was saying, did they get to him?
- Mainstream media and some government officials cheering this on, chanting war, war
- Reports Russia was notified and others say Russia was not notified.
- Missiles were launched from the drone footage and reports the hangers and runway were not damaged
- No S200, S300, S400 protecting the airbase, airbase is important strategic location
- Planes are now taking off from the base
- Russia is now beefing up the entire area, Frigate is sailing towards Syria
- What did this accomplish, no real damage, the base is still being used, most of the craters were on the outside of the base. Now either the tomahawk missiles don’t work as advertised or Russia was able to jam them, or this was done on purpose. Assad still in power, the message was what, the US will fire missiles and won’t destory anything and you can still operate out of the base
- What was the goal, this hasn’t changed the outcome in Syria??
- Russia is now bringing more advanced weaponary, The Russian frigate, Admiral Grigorovich RFS-494, crossed through the Bosphorus Strait “a few hours ago” from the Black Sea, according to a U.S. defense official.
- The agreement between Russia and US has been canceled
- Safe zones are being built, there could be an altercation with Russia now, Rubio already telegraphing the next false flag in regards to attacks on American troops
- The deep state is in full control, they are moving ahead with war, the ball is in Putins court
- Now they are saying that Russia knew about the chemical weapons and might have supplied Assad
