Beware: IMF's Lagarde sees improved world economic outlook

Remember... When the IMF, the UN, or any country says everything is fine... PREPARE FOR THE OPPOSITE.

The gut reaction for politicians when they see a major problem coming is to make a public declaration that everything is fine. They know that if the public's opinion becomes fearful, the economy will go into a death spiral. The more and more you hear good news coming from politicians about the economy, the more you need to keep preparing...

WASHINGTON (AP) — International Monetary Fund chief Christine Lagarde said Thursday that the threat of financial collapse in the global economy appears to have eased. But she warned that developed economies still need to follow through on financial reforms and debt reduction.
"We stopped the collapse. We should avoid the relapse. And it's not time to relax," she told a news conference on her outlook for 2013.
Lagarde said that big economic powers, including the United States and European countries, had taken important steps to shore up their financial systems but have a lot of work left to do. She warned that there are signs of a waning commitment to regulate the financial sector, despite the severe problems that began with the collapse of U.S. financial institutions in 2008. She said that reforms have been delayed and diluted, and she worries that banks are pushing back against necessary reforms.
On the United States, where President Barack Obama is locked in a standoff with congressional Republicans on how to lower the country's deficits, Lagarde said any cuts should be aimed at allowing time for an economic recovery to play out.

Chance of Flares: Earth Directed Sun Spot “Harbors Energy for X-Class Eruptions”

Mac Slavo: Space watchers have warned that the sun may soon be waking up – as early as today – and it has the potential to direct high powered X-Class solar flares directly at earth.

So far today, solar activity is low. However, that could be the calm before the storm. The magnetic field of big sunspot AR1654 has grown more complex. It is now classified as a ‘beta-gamma-delta’ magnetic field, which means it harbors energy for X-class eruptions.

If there is a flare today, the blast would be Earth-directed.

This sunrise shot, taken at dawn on Jan. 16th by Jan Koeman on the bank of the Westerschelde River in the Netherlands, shows how AR1654 (circled) is almost directly facing our planet.

Though some ‘C’ and ‘M’ class flares have hit earth recently, none were strong enough to cause any serious, long-lasting damage, save some minor effects on satellites and radio stations.

X-Class flares, however, have the potential to wreak havoc across the globe. Similar to the earthquake Richter scale, going up from one class to the next means that the flare is at least 10 times as powerful as the level below it, so an ‘X-1 Class’ flare would be 10 times as powerful as the strongest ‘M’ class flare.

The effects of such a flare hitting earth could be disastrous, wiping out essential infrastructure 
components like power grids and utilities, satellite communications, cell phones, transportation systems, and the internet. It’s been theorized that a strong enough solar flare similar to the one that struck earth in 1859, known as the Carrington Event, could potentially wipe out modern day electronic systems and send human civilization back to the 19th century.

In 1989, it took only seconds for Hydro-Quebec, the company that supplies power to the Canadian region, to fail when an intense geo-magnetic storm struck earth and caused a cascading breakdown in the electric grid. It is believed that the solar flare which caused the outage was rated at a class of X-15, and luckily only struck a small portion of the northern hemisphere.

In July of 2012 an X-1 flare narrowly missed earth.

Scientists have rated solar flares into different “divisions,” identified by a number following the letter class. In general, solar flare classes are rated from 1-9, but scientists have, as recently as 2003, measured flares that were literally off the charts:

Then come the X-class flares. Although X is the last letter, there are flares more than 10 times the power of an X1, so X-class flares can go higher than 9.

The most powerful flare measured with modern methods was in 2003, during the last solar maximum, and it was so powerful that it overloaded the sensors measuring it. The sensors cut out at X28.

The biggest X-class flares are, by far, the largest explosions in the solar system and are awesome to watch. Loops tens of times the size of Earth leap up off the Sun’s surface when the Sun’s magnetic fields cross over each other and reconnect. In the biggest events, this reconnection processcan produce as much energy as a billion hydrogen bombs.

Should one of these off the chart flares be directed at earth, we could be looking at an Armageddon-like event in its aftermath.

According to Frank Gaffney, president of the Center for Security Policy, if electronic systems in the United States were wiped out, the consequences would be lead to a complete breakdown in society. Though Gaffney bases his assessment on the threat of an electro-magnetic pulse weapon, a powerful enough solar flare could cause similar destruction:

“Within a year of that attack, nine out of 10 Americans would be dead, because we can’t support a population of the present size in urban centers and the like without electricity.”

Sheriff Tim Mueller's stance on unconstitutional firearms regulations.

In response to Obama's executive mandates or orders and Biden's proposed gun control legislation.

The letter below explains Sheriff Tim Mueller's stance on unconstitutional firearms regulations.

If only every sheriff in every county thought like this... We need a lot more Andys (Tim) and a lot less Barneys in this country. Most law enforcement officers and judges have become nothing more than tax collectors without any honest due process. The officer writes the ticket, the judge sets the fine, and the person is taxed at the court clerk's register (Cha-chinggg!). Andy used good old common sense to read a situation and determine if it should be pursued and enforced. Barney was a mindless retard void of discernment at any level.

Update: Three more Oregon Sheriffs stand with Tim Mueller.

UpdateState officials in Mississippi, Oregon and Texas are vowing to fight back against any attempt by the federal government to impose new gun control laws.

UpdatePine County, MN sheriff ‘will not enforce’ further federal gun regulations

Update: Add Jackson County Sheriff Denny Peyman to the list: “I talk about what I can do for my county. I can’t stand up for other counties, I can’t do it for them, but I can stand up for my people.” Peyman vowed.
“I was one of the first people to say, I think they need to arm school teachers. Not all of them, but there is somebody that needs to have a weapon.”
The sheriff then spoke about how the media glamorizes mass shootings and makes them appealing to copycat wannabe’s.
“What would happen if the first two or three that tried it got shot coming in the front door?” Peyman said. “They wouldn’t do that anymore, it would be taken from them, there’s no glory in that for them.”
“In Jackson county, as long as I am Sheriff here, I got children, I got family, I got friends, I got everybody here, and I feel a whole lot better coming into a room if I know everybody is packing, than if I’m the only one, because if they take me out first, then they take everybody else out too.” the Sheriff concluded.
Sheriff Denny Peyman should be commended for his fine job in upholding constitutional rights. He is a shining example to other law enforcement officers who should take note of his concerns regarding the ongoing attack on the Second Amendment. Rest assured, Peyman is also not the only Sheriff ready to stand up and defend the rights of his people.
Update:  Madison County, ID Sheriff Roy Klingler said states passing gun reform are "out of control." "I personally am sick and tired of the government putting regulations in place that affect our personal rights, our property rights and the Constitution," said Klingler. 
UpdateTexas and Wyoming are threatening to arrest any federal law enforcement agent who tries to enforce federal gun laws in their states.  Let’s hope more states follow suit.
Update:  Richard Mack, a former sheriff in Graham County, Ariz., joined with then-Ravalli County Sheriff Jay Printz in a lawsuit against Washington when Bill Clinton demanded sheriffs enforce provisions of the Brady Bill gun-control law. He won. And since then he’s been at the front of a movement that highlights the responsibility of local sheriffs. Read more at 

Update: Republican Rep. Steve King, who represents western Iowa in Congress, is a gun-rights supporter who warned during an October 2012 debate against Democrat Christie Vilsack that the purpose of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution “is to guard against tyranny because our Founding Fathers understood that if you did not have an armed populace, a tyrant could take over America.”  “So we have a responsibility not just to defend the Second Amendment in words, but do so in deed by hunting and target practicing and also self-defense,” King said.

One of King’s constituents published a letter from King on Jan. 2 in an online gun-rights forum. In the letter, the congressman said he was “heartbroken” by the Newtown, Conn. shooting but called the tragedy ”the act of an evil, and likely deranged, individual intent on committing horrifying acts of violence.” Read more:

Gun Control

Gun Control... Giving criminals the upper hand.

Live Solar Flare Monitor

It is updated every two minutes. Don't be lulled into comfort when the solar flare probability is low. It could significantly change in a very short time. I have seen it swing 6% in a span of ten minutes.

The X-flare column is the important one. A large class X solar flare in our direction will wipe out our power grid and electronics.

These Are The 13 Rules Of Gunfighting Everyone Should Know

Have a gun?
Some words to the wise. Shooting Advice from various Concealed Carry Instructors. If you own a gun, you will appreciate this. If not, you should get one and learn how to use it.
A) Guns have only two enemies: rust and politicians.
B) It’s always better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.
C) Cops carry guns to protect themselves, not you.
D) Never let someone or something that threatens you get inside arms length.
E) Never say “I’ve got a gun.” If you need to use deadly force, the first sound they hear should be the safety clicking off.
F) The average response time of a 911 call is 23 minutes, the response time of a .357 is 1400 feet per second.
G) The most important rule in a gunfight is: Always win – cheat if necessary.
H) Make your attacker advance through a wall of bullets…You may get killed with your own gun, but he’ll have to beat you to death with it, cause it’ll be empty.
I) If you’re in a gun fight:
If you’re not shooting, you should be loading.
If you’re not loading, you should be moving.
If you’re not shooting, moving or loading, you’re probably dead.
J) In a life and death situation, do something…It may be wrong, but do something!
K) If you carry a gun, people call you paranoid. Nonsense! If you have a gun, what do you have to be paranoid about?
L) You can say ‘stop’ or ‘alto’ or any other word, but a large bore muzzle pointed at someone’s head is pretty much a universal language.
M) You cannot save the planet, but you may be able to save yourself and your family.
“Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading,” — Thomas Jefferson

The reasons the USA is in the shape it's in...

Google these names at your leisure and you will notice a trend in the causes of the decline of the United States of America, the greatest nation on Earth...

Woodrow Wilson - Got us into world war one; Gave us the IRS and the first income tax, the Federal Reserve (without any checks or balances), rekindled racism in America; instrumental in creating and advocating the league of nations (precursor to the united nations); increased the power of the federal government by introducing the 17th amendment, establishing the direct election of the senate by popular vote, thereby neutering the states representation in the federal government;  immediately began undoing the good work of past Republican administrations on black civil rights. The Leftist notion that Republicans once supported black civil rights and then stopped is just patently false: Republicans, if anything, were more solicitous of black rights in the period from 1876 to 1920 than they had been before then; Wilson, a democrat, was the first openly racist president; introduced segregation of blacks

Franklin D Roosevelt (FDR) - Caused the Great Depression in the U.S. and around the world by pumping money out of the economy and into his pet government programs over the course of three terms as president; exponentially increased the size, power, and cost of government; confiscated gold held by citizens; created social security; helped form the United Nations; spent more than three times what the U.S. took in taxes;  formed the international monetary fund and the world bank; instituted almost all of the planks of Stalin's socialist party platform of 1928 in parallel to Carl Marx's Communist Manifesto:

1. “Nationalization of our natural resources, beginning with the coal mines and water sites, particularly at Boulder Dam and Muscle Shoals.” (Boulder Dam, renamed Hoover Dam, and Muscle Shoals are now both federal government projects.)
2. “A publicly owned giant power system under which the federal government shall cooperate with the states and municipalities in the distribution of electrical energy to the people at cost.” (Tennessee Valley Authority.)
3. “National ownership and democratic management of railroads and other means of transportation and communication.” (Railroad passenger service is completely nationalized through Amtrak. Some freight service is nationalized through Conrail. The FCC controls communications by telephone, telegraph, radio, and television.)
4. “An adequate national program for flood control, flood relief, reforestation, irrigation, and reclamation.” (Government expenditures for these purposes are currently in the many [non-adjusted] billions of dollars.)
5. “Immediate government relief of the unemployed by the extension of all public works and a program of long range planning of public works …” (In the 1930s, WPA and PWA were a direct counterpart; now, a wide variety of other programs are.) “All persons thus employed to be engaged at hours and wages fixed by bona-fide labor unions.” (The Davis-Bacon and Walsh-Healey Acts required contractors with government contracts to pay “prevailing wages,” generally interpreted as highest union wages.)
6. “Loans to states and municipalities without interest for the purpose of carrying on public works and the taking of such other measures as will lessen widespread misery.” (Federal grants in aid to states and local municipalities currently total [non-adjusted] tens of billions of dollars a year.)
7. “A system of unemployment insurance.” (Part of Social Security system)
8. “The nation-wide extension of public employment agencies in cooperation with city federations of labor.” (U.S. Employment Service and affiliated state employment services administer a network of about 2,500 [in 1980] local employment offices.)
9. “A system of health and accident insurance and of old age pensions as well as unemployment insurance.” (Part of Social Security system.)
10. “Shortening the workday” and “Securing to every worker a rest period of no less than two days in each week.” (Legislated by wages and hours laws that require overtime for more than forty hours of work per week.)
11. “Enacting of an adequate federal anti-child labor amendment.” (Not achieved as amendment, but essence incorporated in various legislative acts.)
12. “Abolition of the brutal exploitation of convicts under the contract system and substitution of a cooperative organization of industries in penitentiaries and workshops for the benefit of convicts and their dependents.” (Party achieved, partly not.)
13. “Increase of taxation on high income levels, of corporation taxes and inheritance taxes, the proceeds to be used for old age pensions and other forms of social insurance.” (In 1928, highest personal income tax rate, 25 percent; in 1978, 70 percent; in 1928, corporate tax rate, 12 percent; in 1978, 48 percent; in 1928, top federal estate tax rate, 20 percent; in 1978, 70 percent.)

Lyndon Johnson - Got us into Vietnam; began robbing social security for general fund purposes; created medicare, medicaid, and welfare; promoted the dependence of minorities on the government and the destruction of the two parent household; this is when minorities started actively voting democrat in large numbers; prior to this point, black people were considered to be highly sought skilled craftsmen

Richard Nixon - Took our currency off of the gold standard; created the EPA and OSHA; instituted the first gun control legislation; politicized abortion; instituted price controls

Jimmy Carter - Rampant runaway inflation; created the department of education and the department of energy; federal speed limits; Iran hostage crisis

George W Bush - Rampant spending; created the department of homeland security (DHS), FEMA, and the TSA

Harry Reid - Rammed through Obamacare without letting anyone read it

Nancy Pelosi - Rammed through Obamacare without letting anyone read it

Barney Frank - Caused the 2008 financial collapse by forcing banks to give loans to people who could not afford them, resulting in bankruptcy and bank insolvency

Barrack Obama - Created more debt than all of the U.S. presidents combined in less than four years; U.S. credit rating downgraded; every energy company that the federal government funded went bankrupt; flagrantly fueling class envy; increased unemployment and the number of welfare and food stamp recipients (EBT); created Obamacare; 2012 National Defense Authorization Act; DHS civilian army created; in his words... "We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded."

This is but a sample of the causes of a bloated government and the destruction of the american family.
