The Baltic Dry Shipping Index Just Collapsed To An All-Time Record Low

Source: Economic Collapse Blog | I was absolutely stunned to learn that the Baltic Dry Shipping Index had plummeted to a new all-time record low of 504 at one point on Thursday.  I have written a number of articles lately about the dramatic slowdown in global trade, but I didn’t realize that things had gotten quite this bad already.  Not even during the darkest moments of the last financial crisis did the Baltic Dry Shipping Index drop this low.  Something doesn’t seem to be adding up, because the mainstream media keeps telling us that the global economy is doing just fine.  In fact, the Federal Reserve is so confident in our “economic recovery” that they are getting ready to raise interest rates.  Of course the truth is that there is no “economic recovery” on the horizon.  In fact, as I wrote about yesterday, there are signs all around us that are indicating that we are heading directly into another major economic crisis.  This staggering decline of the Baltic Dry Shipping Index is just another confirmation of what is directly ahead of us.

Obama and Putin Agree on Bombing Islamic State’s Oil Pipeline

In Putin’s meeting with Obama, the Russian president “stressed the need” to step up the fight against Islamic State’s oil business, said his spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, without providing more details.

A united front would be bad news not just for the jihadists, but for everyone they do business with. The U.S. and Russia are both widening their target lists to include the middlemen who help the group make money off illicit oil sales.

The U.S. is hoping the Paris bloodbath “will galvanize others to do even more” in the effort against terrorism, Defense Secretary Ash Carter said on Tuesday, according to the Pentagon.

Paris attack witness says black Mercedes pulled up and white shooters fired rifles from the hip

WEB Notes: I am surprised this eye witness account ever made it to the press. From this account this documents these were not Mooslim men. This was a professional operation. We have all seen the reaction when terrorists destroy and kill and it is not calm and collective. Calm and collective is for the professionals.

“He fired lots of bullets. He was white, clean shaven and had dark hair neatly trimmed. He was dressed all in black accept for a red scarf. They looked like soldiers or mercenaries and carried the whole thing out like a military operation. It was clear that they were both very heavily armed and the gunman was carrying several magazines on him. They both then coolly sat back in the car and sped off in the direction of the Bataclan Theatre.”

Iran’s Basij commander: U.S., Israeli ‘investments’ behind Paris attacks

Israel and the United States are responsible for the terror attacks in Paris as Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL) is the two allies’ “infantry unit,” the leader of Iran’s Basij paramilitary force said.

“ISIL is the infantry unit of the U.S. and the usurper Zionist regime since they don’t have fighters today anymore and have lost power to fight, and they have created ISIL by making investment on the fools,” Brig. Gen. Mohammad Reza Naqdi said on Nov. 18, according to the semi-official Fars News Agency.

The Most Important Question About ISIS That Nobody Is Asking

WEB Notes: More lies. Who honestly believes the US knows how much oil ISIS is selling from Iraq and Syria, but doesn’t know where they are coming from? The US and Russia both destroyed tankers just recently of “ISIS'”. All of this is hogwash, the west is funding ISIS plan and simple and these are just cover stories.
