Dow Bloodbath Could Herald “Great Depression”

NY Times admits: It’s a ‘double dip’ as markets plunge.

Dow Bloodbath Could Herald “Great Depression” 0507 stock traders meltdown 416x416

Seven months after President Barack Obama gave a State of the Union speech in which he said the economy was in “recovery mode” and that “the stock market has come roaring back,” the New York Times today all but admits that America has entered a double dip recession following yesterday’s 512 point Dow plunge, while others go further, warning of a new Great Depression as markets continue to plummet today.

Why it takes a dramatic fall in the stock market for the establishment media to admit something that’s been painfully obvious in almost every other sector of the economy for the last 2 years goes right to the heart of the split between Wall Street and Main Street.

Rising unemployment, crumbling house prices, record food stamp usage, and the soaring price of gold as a barometer of dollar depreciation are three key reasons why contrarians have been warning all along that the economy was in fact getting worse and that talk of a “recovery” was deluded at best and crazy at worst.

For refusing to go along with the happy clappers by putting the blinkers on when it comes to the real measurements of economic health and not the phony, casino-style stock market, people like Gerald Celente and Max Keiser were accused of engaging in “pessimism porn” even as their forecasts played out.

Americans who believed the propaganda about the non-existent “recovery” and failed to move their assets into safe havens will feel stabbed in the back now that the Old Gray Lady finally admits the 2008 recession never really ended. But it really serves them right for placing trust in an establishment that has lost all credibility.

Under the headline, Time to Say It: Double Dip Recession May Be Happening, Floyd Norris highlights how the recession was significantly deeper than we were first told, and the so-called “recovery” was notably overestimated.

“Last week the government announced its annual revision to the numbers for the last several years. New government surveys indicated Americans had spent less than previously estimated in 2009 and 2010 on a wide range of things, including food, clothing and computers. Tax returns showed Americans even cut back on gambling. The recession now appears to have been deeper — a top-to-bottom fall of 5.1 percent — and the recovery even less impressive. The economy is still smaller than it was in 2007,” writes Norris.

Thursday’s market bloodbath also prompted John Lonski, chief economist at Moody’s Investors Service in New York, to predict a return to recession. “I now think the odds are uncomfortably high for a double dip,” he said.

But Peter Morici, a professor at the University of Maryland business school and former chief economist for the U.S. International Trade Commission, went further, warning of a crisis to rival the fallout of 1929.

“If we go down a second time, it will be the Great Depression,” he said. “Last time (during the long recession) you didn’t see armies of men roaming the country looking for work. Next time the (extended) unemployment benefits will be tapped out, public employees will be laid off; we will see some really bad things.”

Yesterday’s stock market plunge, which is being repeated in Asian and European markets so far today, will precipitate what the Federal Reserve and Ben Bernanke were planning all along – QE3 – which could represent a terminal blow for the already stricken U.S. dollar. Helicopter Ben will flood the money supply with more fake greenbacks, the artificially inflated stock market will briefly rally once more, and all the suckers will plough all their money back in only to get burned again later down the line.

Smart and sober realists who doggedly stuck to the unspectacular but reliable safe havens of gold, silver and other stores of wealth, will once again preserve the value of their assets.

As Marc Faber told Bloomberg yesterday, ” “Stocks will be dropping 30%, then rallying 20%, and dropping another 30% – that’s going to be the pattern. And whoever can’t live with that shouldn’t be buying equities at all.”

Faber warns “there is a case to be ultrabearish about everything, and markets are going to go lower,” adding that next week will give us a clearer picture of exactly how much enthusiasm Bernanke has for hammering the final nail in the dollar’s coffin with the launch of QE3.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
