Globe Grows Darker as Sunshine Diminishes 10% to 37%

In the second half of the 20th century, the world became, quite literally, a darker place.

Defying expectation and easy explanation, hundreds of instruments around the world recorded a drop in sunshine reaching the surface of Earth, as much as 10 percent from the late 1950’s to the early 90’s, or 2 percent to 3 percent a decade. In some regions like Asia, the United States and Europe, the drop was even steeper. In Hong Kong, sunlight decreased 37 percent.

‘Is This Still America?’

(Video) – The IRS under the Obama administration painted targets on the backs of conservatives beginning in 2010, and ousted acting IRS commissioner Steven Miller apologized to the House Ways and Means Committee on Friday. But members on both sides of the aisle were furious, and castigated him for the mismanagement and political gamesmanship the IRS engaged in on his watch.

Texas Republican congressman Kevin Brady had the harshest criticism for Miller.

‘Is this still America?’ he asked him.

Netanyahu to Putin: ‘Your missile sales to Assad could trigger war’

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly warned Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday that Moscow’s sale of a sophisticated missile defense system to President Bashar Assad could push the Middle East into war. 
Netanyahu, who flew to meet Putin for emergency talks in the Black Sea resort of Sochi, told the Russian president that the S-300 had no relevance to Assad’s civil-war battles against rebel groups, and urged Moscow not to deliver the systems, Channel 2 reported on Wednesday night.

More Americans Committing Suicide than During the Great Depression

Suicide rates are tied to the economy.

The Boston Globe reported in 2011:

A new report issued today by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention finds that the overall suicide rate rises and falls with the state of the economy — dating all the way back to the Great Depression.
The report, published in the American Journal of Public Health, found that suicide rates increased in times of economic crisis: the Great Depression (1929-1933), the end of the New Deal (1937-1938), the Oil Crisis (1973-1975), and the Double-Dip Recession (1980-1982). Those rates tended to fall during strong economic times — with fast growth and low unemployment — like right after World War II and during the 1990s.

Network – We’re In A Lot Of Trouble!

(Video) – The people of the world get most of their information from a small group called, the major media. This information is broadcast over the internet, in print and of course “the tube.” This group is owned ultimately by a select few who shape the news and our perception of reality…

In today’s world we have “Reality TV.” We are shown different types of shows and told that it is reality, that it is normal life… But is it? Of course not. I would encourage you to watch the following video clip of a movie called “The Network.” This movie was released in 1976. There is more truth in this clip than what many may realize…

Rand Paul: “A staggering abuse of power, Obama acts as though we no longer have a Constitution”

When I filibustered over domestic drone use, critics said that I was being ridiculous. They said that no American had been killed by a drone on American soil and that no one was likely to be anytime soon. President Obama responded that he hadn’t killed anyone yet and didn’t intend to — but he might.

That wasn’t the point. The filibuster was about the limits of power. It was about how much authority the president imagined he had. Lincoln wrote that nearly any man can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man, give him power.

Japan takes first step to a permanent reactor shutdown after Fukushima

Experts judged on Wednesday that a reactor on Japan’s west coast is located on ground at high risk of an earthquake, setting in motion a process that will likely lead to the first permanent shutdown of a nuclear plant since the 2011 Fukushima crisis.

Mothballing the reactor at Japan’s oldest nuclear station would be the most stringent measure adopted in Japan since the meltdowns at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear station north of Tokyo exposed failings in nuclear oversight. The experts’ finding is likely to send shockwaves through an industry that has long been used to a light touch from regulators.

Shock report: 10,700 men raped in the US military

Navy Petty Officer 3rd Class Brian Lewis and several military female victims testified to harrowing sexual abuse at a U.S. Senate Armed Services Subcommittee on Personnel, March 13, 2013Lewis stated he “was raped by a senior petty officer … told by a commander not to report it, and later was diagnosed with a personality disorder and discharged.”

Lewis says, “As I demonstrated, men are a majority of the victims in the military. DoD’s infamous ‘Ask her when she’s sober’ marginalizes male survivors and sends a message that men cannot be raped and therefore are not real survivors.”

Controlling the Beginning Stages of Hyperinflation by Manipulating the Precious Metals

The tactic by the Fed and Central Banks is to inflate the stock markets while manipulating the price of gold and silver lower.  This achieves two goals, 1) it reassures the public’s faith by pumping up stock prices while the economic indicators continue to deteriorate and 2) it elevates the dollar while it destroys market sentiment in the precious metals.

So far, the strategy has worked.  Some of the toughest gold and silver bugs are becoming extremely frustrated and downright bearish.  You can’t blame them as this is typical human psychology.   Although, extremes and manipulations never last forever and at some point in time they reverse.

Obama Emphasizes ‘Military Option,’ But Insists US Won’t Attack Syria Alone

In multi-hour talks today with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, President Obama reiterated that the US “reserves the right” to attack Syria militarily despite a previous deal with Russia to pursue a negotiated settlement to the nation’s ongoing civil war.

At the same time Obama insisted that the US would not attack Syria unilaterally, but would only do so as part of a broader alliance of attacking nations, saying the US had “no magic formula for dealing with an extraordinary violent and difficult situation like Syria’s.”
