Time Magazine: Prospect Of Civil War In U.S. “Doesn’t Seem That Far Fetched”
With protesters in France entering a seventh day of strikes and demonstrations against draconian austerity measures, many political observers in the U.S. are now wondering how long it will be before similar scenes unfold on American streets, with even Time Magazine now conceding that the prospect of a civil war in the States “doesn’t seem that far fetched”.
The question remains – how will Americans react if the Obama administration pushes ahead with its plan to seize all private 401(k) pensions, which will be swallowed up by the Social Security Administration under the banner of mandatory Guaranteed Retirement Accounts? How will Americans react to the upcoming announcement that the Federal Reserve will further eviscerate the value of the dollar by purchasing junk assets from big banks at exorbitant prices with money printed out of thin air?

Violent Anarchists Help French Authorities Crush Pension Protests
As we pointed out yesterday, there are two different groups protesting in France at the moment, those who are having a genuine impact, the union workers who have shut down entire areas of the country with fuel blockades, go-slow protests and picket lines and in doing so garnered the support of 70% of the country, and the idiot rent-a-mob anarcho-communists who will seize on any opportunity to run rampage in the deluded belief that they are standing up to the evil forces of capitalism by throwing a rock at a Starbucks window.
We have documented numerous different examples where the black bloc anarchists were completely infiltrated by the authorities to provide a pretext for a police state crackdown.
Every time a car is set alight or a shop window shattered, the state gets another opportunity to castigate the entire protest movement as a hoard of violent extremists, and with it meter out a more brutal and oppressive police response.


Americans Buying Guns In Preparation For Civil Unrest
Americans are acquiring guns, silver and food stamps at record levels in reaction to the crumbling economy, trends indicative of a fearful public who are struggling financially and preparing for potential mass civil unrest in the aftermath of a total economic collapse.
Interest in silver coins is also surging, with Americans looking for more affordable ways to protect their increasingly devalued dollar savings with many unable to afford soar away gold prices.


New Rules Coming for Payments Out of Health Savings Accounts
Under the new health care law, consumers using workplace pre-tax health savings accounts will soon need a doctor’s note to pay for Tylenol and an estimated 15,000 other over-the-counter drugs.
The IRS says any money removed from HSA accounts to pay for medical expenses bought without a prescription will be included as taxable income and subject to an additional tax of 20 percent.


Science may have found silver bullet for common cold
Researchers have found they can attach tiny studs of silver to harmless bacteria, giving them the ability to destroy viruses. They tested the silver-impregnated bacteria against norovirus, which causes winter vomiting outbreaks, and found they leave the virus unable to cause infections.



Real Numbers = Great Depression, French Petro Panic, Silver and Rice, Manganese Adverse Affects

Behind federal government’s lies: real economic numbers prove US in Great Depression
Much of the major news media—as many Americans have finally come to realize—is in collusion with governments at the federal, state and county level. Gone are the days when journalists were true watchdogs over the public till and
promoters of good government. Most news organizations have become corporate organs attached to the government at the hip, and citizens have paid a dear price for this unholy alliance.

Meanwhile the federal government and the Federal Reserve both claim that inflation is virtually non-existent. They have denied any increase in Social Security benefits to retirees based on numbers that both know are fraudulent.

The real seasonally adjusted unemployment rate today hovers at 23 percent.

The horrifying truth is that since 1985 the dollar has lost about 50 percent of its value.

During 2009 the GDP collapsed by a negative 6 percent and even now is running at a negative 1 to 2 percent.


Panic at the pumps: French motorists swamp petrol stations as fuel supplies to main Paris airport cut off
Striking workers have closed down 11 out of France’s 12 plants, sparking fears that the petrol pumps will run dry.
Union bosses yesterday called for a nationwide strike on Tuesday, hoping to galvanise France into a drawn-out confrontation with the government over a proposed rise in the retirement age.
Transport minister Dominque Bussereau tried to reassure drivers that fuel would not run out – but petrol station owners said his message only sent more people rushing to fill up.
Meanwhile, 38 fuel tankers and 11 gas transporters are currently sitting off the Mediterranean coast, unable to offload cargos of crude oil to the biggest refineries around Marseilles.


Jim Rogers says stock up on silver chopsticks and rice
Turning his attention to currencies, Rogers said: “Right now everyone is pessimistic about the dollar, including me, so I wouldn’t sell the dollar right now. In the long run though he believes the dollar will keep going down.
“I am pessimistic long-term but I found in life it’s better being a contrarian than not be,” he said.
Speaking in a Teck Ticker interview on Wednesday, Rogers said: “Central banks around the world are going to print money till we run out of trees”. Investors should protect themselves with real assets, he argues.
“Buy yourself some silver chopsticks or some silver cutlery, and buy yourself some rice, stock up with rice and you will be very rich in 5 or 10 years,” Rogers told India’s Economic Times.


Manganese Can Adversely Affect Childrens Intelligence
According to a report in Science Daily, a new Canadian study shows that children exposed to high concentrations of manganese in drinking water performed worse on tests of intellectual functioning than children with lower exposures.
Soy Infant Formula is LOADED with Manganese!
Yes, researchers have found that soybean plants absorb manganese from the soil and concentrate it, so that its use in soy-based infant formula can result in as much as 200 times the level found in natural breast milk!
