David Galland interviewing Chris at the 2011 Casey Research Summit in Phoenix, AZ (adam)

David Galland interviewing Chris Martenson at the 2011 Casey Research Summit in Phoenix, AZ. Chris had just finished giving his presentation "Unfixable", which received the highest rating of the conference by the attendees.

Riots During Great Depression (June C.)

Fourth Turnings sure are fun. You don’t hear much about violence, riots and chaos during the Great Depression.

Want To Defeat The Banks? Stop Participating In The System! (June C.)

Most social and political systems today are designed around collectivist methodologies. Their primary tool is centralization of power, and the removal of choice from the public consciousness. We are made to believe that the establishment is necessary for our survival, and that to abandon it would mean certain destruction. We are taught that the individual is subservient and inconsequential in the face of the state. This is simply not so. Like the traveler in “Before The Law”, we have been defeated by our own expectations of how the law (or justice) works. We sit and wait for permission, when we should be charging through the gates and taking what is rightfully ours.

Will Occupy Wall Street Turn Violent…REALLY Violent? (June C.)

So far, the “Occupy” events around the country have been relatively benign. Don’t get me wrong—they’ve been horrible for local businesses, a pain in the butt for sanitation workers, irritating for law enforcement, and expensive for cities, but they haven’t been anything like what we saw in the Middle East earlier this year.

Protecting You From Reality: Government Targets “Rogue” Web Sites and Alternative Media (June C.)

In the last decade, as traditional press and television media sacrificed truth and metamorphosed into nothing more than propaganda arms for government policies and their corporate sponsors, millions of citizens journalists have risen up to fill the void. Whether you’ve created a web site to distribute information and news, or regularly contribute to an online community by sharing news links, excerpts, or video clips, you are part of this growing truth movement referred to collectively as ‘alternative news media.’ Unlike the officially recognized members of the fourth estate, easily identified by the press passes they wear or the news vans they drive, alternative news is driven not by the whims of centralized producers and presstitutes willing to sell their souls for more access, but rather, by those concerned with disseminating and acquiring the real truth, no matter how uncomfortable it may be.

World's largest gold coin unveiled in Australia (TG)

Embossed on one side with a leaping kangaroo and on the other with the profile of Britain's Queen Elizabeth II, the coin was revealed in time to mark this week's Commonwealth summit to be opened by the monarch.

With a denomination of Aus$1 million, the coin was "the pinnacle of ingenuity and innovation", Perth Mint chief executive Ed Harbuz said.

Euro Bailouts: The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly (Joe P.)

The European Financial Stability Facility (EFSF) that’s touted to protect one trillion euros is a scheme where even policy makers don’t yet know what exactly it is going to look like. It is not a “bazooka,” as it cannot refinance itself at the European Central Bank (ECB). Indeed, gearing it up appears to be done through the back door, by making it an insurance scheme. Even so, it only has a fraction of the capital paid-in of what its commitments are going to be. As such, it’s a smokescreen, albeit a very powerful one. In a leveraged world, appearances count for a lot. However, it would be far healthier for policy makers to finally realize that de-leveraging is the answer, not to put up ever-greater commitments that –particularly in the case of Greece – may well be called upon.

Consumers spend more, save less in September (Michael W.)

Americans paid for goods and services — autos were a big seller last month — largely by drawing on their savings or taking on more debt. The personal savings rate fell from 4.1% to 3.6%, marking the lowest level since December 2007— the month in which the last recession started.

Apocalypse Redux? U.S. Natural Gas Find off Vietnam Could Raise Tensions with China (James S.)

The South China Sea’s offshore resources are currently claimed by six countries – China, Vietnam, Taiwan, Malaysia, Brunei and the Philippines, with competing claims overlapping in a crazy quilt pattern. Given the billions of dollars at stake for exploiting the undersea energy resources, it is unlikely that the contradictory claims will be resolved anytime soon, making Southeast Asian waters a potential flash point for conflict.

A Microgrid That Kept the Lights On After Japan's Earthquake (guardia)

But in one small section of the city, the lights stayed on. At Tohoku Fukushi University, in the northwest part of town, the laboratories’ servers kept on humming, the clinic’s MRI machines didn’t lose a tesla, and the hospital’s lights and equipment operated without a hitch. These facilities were the beneficiaries of an experimental microgrid project fed by three types of energy generators—fuel cells, solar panels, and natural gas microturbines. Because the project also uses the thermal exhaust from the gas turbines and fuel cells to heat the buildings, the hospital’s patients were kept warm through northern Japan’s cold March nights

Breaking News: 110 micro Sv/h in Setagaya (guardia)

In Setagaya, Tokyo, ward mayor held an emergency press conference at 10PM, 10/28/2011. They announced that they measured 110 micro Sv/h near a supermarket, "Powerlarks Setagaya" in Setagaya Yawatayama.

The role of China in the Crash Perspective

 I recently read Red Alert:  How China's Growing Prosperity Threatens the American Way of Life,  by Stephen Leeb and am reasonably convinced by his book

that China is on a sure path to cornering the market on natural resources while the USA

debates deficit reduction!  I am quite surprised that there is not much discussion in the CRASH

Community on the relationship of China to the prices of commodities and  why China will pull

far ahead of us on alternative energy.  See recent examples about China's use of rare earth 

elements with Japan and the slow destruction of the USA solar panel industry.

Leeb's book is a must for macro analysts of our present and future situation.  Wake up, America!
