Nearly Half of Youth Say ‘American Dream’ Is Dead: Harvard Poll (LesPhelps)

Sanders registered just 1 percent when the survey last reported its findings in April. Still, Della Volpe said Sanders will need to run up bigger numbers with young voters, if he wants to overtake Clinton. “For Sanders to have success on a national basis, he needs to be leading Clinton by a much larger number among young people than he is now,” he said.

What does a veteran mining executive look for when investing his money in junior equities? In this interview with The Gold Report, Rob McEwen, who has been predicting $5,000/oz gold prices since 2011, explains why he still thinks that this is a possibility in the next four years and how companies can take advantage of technology to ensure that a price rise goes to the bottom line—and ultimately shareholders. And he shares the names of the three companies that meet his litmus test, one of which bears his name.

War Is On The Horizon: Is It Too Late To Stop It? — Paul Craig Roberts (reflector)

Washington was caught off guard by Russia’s decisiveness. Fearful that the quick success of such decisive action by Russia would discourage Washington’s NATO vassals from continuing to support Washington’s war against Assad and Washington’s use of its puppet government in Kiev to pressure Russia, Washington arranged for Turkey to shoot down a Russian fighter-bomber despite the agreement between Russia and NATO that there would be no air-to-air encounters in Russia’s area of air operation in Syria.

Divine belief in Economics at the beginning of the 21st Century (richcabot)

Whether every denomination mentioned here can truly be called a religious denomination is doubtful, however, since the status of religion is highly dependent on being anchored in institutions as well as proclamation practices. The reason why the neoclassical denomination had the status of religion must be found in an extensive proclamation practice, anchored in academic environments, partisan circles, central authorities, media, and general speech combined with a strong affinity for worshipping the divine. Thanks to this, economic sages were able to conjure up strong, religious “truths” despite the extremely underdeveloped epistemological apparatus of neoclassical Economics.

War & Economic Calamity Coming, 2016 Predictions: Gerald Celente (pinecarr)

Gold and silver are running counter to other commodities. Why? Celente says, “Demand is up for gold and silver. To me, it is the ultimate safe haven. I’ve been saying since 2012 and 2013 that the bottom for gold is about $1,050 an ounce. I gave that number out because that’s about what it costs to pull it out of the ground. Gold is about planning for the worst.”

Pumped beyond limits, many U.S. aquifers in decline (LesPhelps)

Time is running out for portions of the High Plains Aquifer, which lies beneath eight states from South Dakota to Texas and is the lifeblood of one of the world’s most productive farming economies. The aquifer, also known as the Ogallala, makes possible about one-fifth of the country’s output of corn, wheat and cattle. But its levels have been rapidly declining, and with each passing year more wells are going dry.

    Tax it.

    The climate change agreement doesn't pass the sniff test. Why don't they drop the entire tax code edifice and replace it with a tax on carbon as it comes out of the ground? 

    I suspect that there are not enough loopholes and angles in such a simple scheme.

    A tax on babies would be an even better way to clarify the root of the problem.

    Why should the legislated solution be clear, when obfuscation permeates the ""science""?

    Sweden self-destructing

    In spite of the supposedly tighter asylum rules announced November 24, chaos rules in Sweden. So far, in 2015, 150,000 asylum seekers have been registered; but as there is nowhere to house them, people are sleeping in tents, on cardboard boxes in exhibition halls, and even on the street. Many run away from the Immigration Service facilities. More than 22,000 people are supposed to be deported but refuse to leave. Swedes are understandably terrified that terrorists might be hiding among the refugees. The police are busy with pointless border controls and cannot attend to their normal work. It is not an exaggeration to say that in this situation, Sweden has lost track of pretty much everything.

    Even the asylum seekers are complaining. On a Swedish public television program, Uppdrag Granskning, aired on December 2, Salwa, a mother of young children, told the reporter how she is forced to live in an asylum house along with men she called "bad people." When the reporter explained to Salwa that 10,000 new asylum seekers arrive every week, and this was why everything was topsy-turvy, she replied: "Then close the borders. Stop taking in more people. If you have ten guests in your house and there is not enough room, would you still take in ten more?"

    As noted last month, however, to avoid having to show any papers, a terrorist going to Sweden to commit acts of terror only has to tell the border police he is seeking asylum. He will immediately be driven to the closest Immigration Service facility. While the Immigration Service tries to figure out who he is, he can plan his attacks in the peace and quiet of the Swedish countryside. And as it takes the Immigration Service 222 days, on average, to establish a plausible identity, he need not be in any hurry.

    One person who has grown tired of this whole charade is actually one of the Border Police at the Öresund Bridge (between Denmark and Sweden). He told Gatestone Institute that every day, the new controls cause a number of people — many of whom had planned on passing through Sweden to seek asylum in Finland or Norway — to return to Denmark of their own volition. But, he said, it is rare that someone refuses to show identification or apply for asylum, and thus be turned down.

    "The truth is that persons with evil intent know exactly what to do when they come here," he said.

    "That information spreads like wildfire. These new border controls are there for the sole purpose of reassuring the public. They have absolutely no effect on the influx of migrants. The public is given a completely erroneous picture of what we are doing. They do not understand that we spend enormous amounts of time checking Swedish and Danish commuters. If we do not, the press goes crazy and starts screaming about discrimination.

    "It seems as if those in power do not want the people who are here illegally to be deported. They give them free health care, free dental care, and schooling for their children. It is mixed messages all the time. I think they need to make up their minds about what they want. These controls mean nothing. They are just a formality to make everything look good and avoid discriminating against anyone. We should put our time and effort where they are needed."

    When asked by Gatestone why the police were allocating enormous resources to border controls that in fact do not amount to anything, the Press Officer at the Swedish National Police Agency (Rikspolisstyrelsen), Stephan Ray, stated that he did not have time to discuss it because he needed to go to the bathroom; then hung up the phone…

    District Attorneys [DAs] apparently have so little to do, that they recently promised to supply the Immigration Service with 30 underemployed DAs. The Immigration Service, despite having recently hired another 1,200 employees, is, of course, struggling to cope with the current situation. In total, Immigration Service staff wages cost the Swedish taxpayers 250 million kronor (about $29,000,000) a month, or about 3 billion kroner (about $350,000,000) a year.

    "We can lend them 30 DAs and clerks," chief prosecutor Solveig Wollstad said in an interview with Gatestone, "because our influx of cases has gone down. The police are busy doing other things, such as fighting terrorism and taking care of migrants."

    When asked if the situation was possibly due to crime going down, Wollstad said, "No, no, no. The decrease is due to the police working so much with other things, such as preventing terror and dealing with the refugee flow. More police are needed at the borders now. Sweden is in crisis. It is not just us who are lending out staff: it is also the National Courts Administration, the Enforcement Authority, the Prison and Probation Service and a number of other authorities."

    In short, the only discernible effect of the "humanitarian superpower's" new asylum rules is that the Swedish police are busy checking the identities of people who do not want to seek asylum in Sweden, and therefore lack the resources to apprehend criminals.

    Controlling the Narrative

    A people are controlled by their narrative. 

    The Semitic cult of Christianity is failing in Europe.  It must be replaced by another. Something more robust. Islam fits the bill.  

    From a Semitic point of view it is better to install Islam than to lose control to native Pagans. 

    I urge Arabs to return to the religions of their ancestors in order to regain their natural good humor and culture.  They have been bent out of shape by the Iron grip of Semitism. 

    A cult is a cult, no matter how large it becomes.

    What does "source term" mean

    What does "source term" mean in the Fukushima paper ? Does it just mean the value of the variable to plug into their model ?

    …turns out – yes, it was just a number for some modelling, it wasn't what Washington's Blog was reporting it as.

    – from comments –

    NARAC is given question. This is NOT a report, it's a question submitted to NARAC:
    what if this this and this were happening to x reactors (source) — what would be the result?
    Physics is how we knew all was not well. No power, no cooling, no containment.
    That's everything we needed to know… within hours, it would be a nuclear disaster.
    That is what people need to understand. Blame the NRC for not giving better information to states. The NRC was tasked with providing appropriate data to states… but the NRC also did not know what was happening in Japan. because the NRC is a domestic regulatory agency and the nuclear accident was happening in Japan!

    Panic over, it wasn't part of the UN ecocommunazi eugenics 21 depopulation plan.
