Negative interest rates put world on course for biggest mass default in history

(Source: Telegraph) – Here’s an astonishing statistic; more than 30pc of all government debt in the eurozone – around €2 trillion of securities in total – is trading on a negative interest rate.

With the advent of European Central Bank quantitative easing, what began four months ago when 10-year Swiss yields turned negative for the first time has snowballed into a veritable avalanche of negative rates across European government bond markets. In the hunt for apparently “safe assets”, investors have thrown caution to the wind, and collectively determined to pay governments for the privilege of lending to them.

CA SB277 on vaccines moves toward disastrous passage

(Source: Black Listed News) – California Senate Bill 277 has passed through the Judiciary Committee, and needs another Committee’s rubber stamp before it arrives on the Senate floor for debate—and what looks like a ride into law.

Governor Brown will sign the Bill. Brown has become a standard fool. He’s worn out. Whatever interesting ideas he may have entertained in his former “moonbeam” incarnation are gone in the wind.

Source: Baltimore mayor ordered police to stand down

(Video, Source: Fox) – Despite a firm denial by Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, a senior law enforcement source charges that she gave an order for police to stand down as riots broke out Monday night, raising more questions about whether some of the violence and looting could have been prevented.

The source, who is involved in the enforcement efforts, confirmed to Fox News there was a direct order from the mayor to her police chief Monday night, effectively tying the hands of officers as they were pelted with rocks and bottles.

The Dwindling US Economy

(Source: Paul Craig Roberts) – The announcement today (April 29) of a barely positive GDP first quarter 2015 growth rate of 0.2 percent (two-tenths of one percent) is an intentional exaggeration.

Today’s GDP report is the “advance estimate.” There will be two revisions, with the first occurring in one month on May 29.

Michigan Proposes Bill to Require Official Visits to Parents Homeschooling Their Children

WEB Notes: There is a very large push in this country to do away with home school. We see this article and California is pushing a vaccine bill as well. Very disturbing. Most people in this country have no idea what homeschooling is all about. I hear many of the opinion, ‘well public school is the way to go so the kids can get that social aspect’. That is a canned response plain and simple and the only argument I ever hear which is one that was given to them from the television set. Homeschooling provides funds for your children to partake in “social” activities you name it they have it. There are events to do in the community with your children sports, etc and to top it off you can go to most home school sites and have your child attend a few classes a week. In my opinion the government would love to get rid of home school as it’s the last choice for parents who do not want their children to be indoctrinated by the public school system.

(Source: Infowars) – The busybodies in Michigan have proposed a new bill directed at children who are home schooled, which will require two annual home inspections and official state registration.

The Real Financial Crisis Ahead——American Households Live Paycheck-To-Paycheck, Saving Virtually Nothing

(Source: David Stockman) – There is a financial crisis on the horizon. It is a crisis that all the Central Bank interventions in the world cannot cure. It is a financial crisis that will continue to change the economic landscape of America for decades to come.

No, I am not talking about the next Lehman event or the next financial market meltdown. Although something akin to both will happen in the not-so-distant future. It is the lack of financial stability of the current, and next, generation that will shape the American landscape in the future.

UN chief praises pope for framing climate change as moral imperative, says encyclical

WEB Notes: It should be clear to all the mainstream religious institutions of our time do not stand with our Father. Do not listen to their words, but test their fruits as Christ taught us. They are attempting to use religion as a reason for people to accept that we are causing the world to change. Yet, the earth has gone through many hot and cold periods before man walked the earth in the flesh and during this time as well. While the earth has heated and cooled if you do your research you will note the planet Mars has also heated and cooled. So I ask you to use common sense and think what is the common denominator? The Sun of course.

Gay Marriage Arguments Divide Supreme Court Justices

WEB Notes: Kennedy stated this would be a hard decision for him, but he see’s the other side as well. He will most likely be the deciding vote and if you read this whole article you get the feeling he will vote to allow homosexual marriage. It will take about two months to deliberate.

(Source: NY Times) – The Supreme Court on Tuesday seemed deeply divided about one of the great civil rights issues of the age: whether the Constitution guarantees same-sex couples the right to marry.
