While The World Parties Away on Super Bowl 50 Weekend, North Korea Bumps Up It’s Missile Launch Plans

What if? What if the world’s most deranged lunatic leader of the most reclusive, cruel, oppressive and dangerous hermit nation on earth decided to commit national suicide?  What if North Korea actually launched an attempted nuclear first strike against the United States on Super Bowl 50 weekend, while the entire free world was partying away, completely distracted and unprepared?  Sounds the plot line to a really goofy, poorly made Seth Rogen comedy film, doesn’t it? [ No, not really. ]

How long will the world stand by while North Korea’s Kim Jong Un continues to up, up, up the ante, getting ever closer to being able to actually hit the United States with a nuclear first strike. Sanctions are obviously not working, and they haven’t been for years. Is the free world really more or less helpless to do anything that can really put a stop to the diabolical plans of a nuclear armed North Korea? We west coast USA residents think about these things.  We think about them more than we should. We’re first in the line of fire, along with Hawaii and Alaska. Will someone, somewhere, please do something?  Once again, “Where is 007 when you need him?”

Cited: “Satellite images taken this week of North Korea’s Sohae rocket launch site show apparent fueling activity seen in the past shortly before a rocket launch, said Washington-based 38 North, a North Korea-monitoring project.

North Korean state media has not reported on the changed schedule.

On Friday, U.S. President Barack Obama spoke by telephone with President Xi Jinping of China, North Korea’s main ally and neighbour, and agreed that a North Korean launch would represent a “provocative and destabilising action,” the White House said.

Obama and Xi also said they would coordinate efforts to respond to North Korea’s nuclear test last month and said they would not accept North Korea as a nuclear weapon state.”

Did North Korea’s Jan 6th 2016 Underground Detonation of a Small Hydrogen Bomb Light Up the World with Sudden New Earthquake Activity?

worldquakes1.8.16

In the world of known acts of pure idiocy by national leaders, probably nothing will ever top the deranged decision by North Korea’s Kim Jong Un on 1.6.2016 to actually detonate a small to mid-sized hydrogen device underground, creating a 5.2 Richter Scale earthquake which could be felt and seen roiling the ground all the way to China. The very next day US based patriotic weatherman and alternative news reporter DutchSinse noted an alarming burst of sudden new earthquake activity all over the world, but especially noted in the United States. One wonders whether there is a relationship between these two events.

Dr. Marc Faber Is One of the Few Financial Gurus Willing to Tell the Truth about World Financial Markets and You Ought to Be Listening

Financial analyst Marc Faber has been warning investors since last October about a “Chinese credit bubble” and a potentially devastating correction to come in world markets.

1.7.2016

What average investors [ $50,000 to $250,000 usd in the stock market ] mostly don’t realize is that about 80% of the advice which is given to you as the ‘little guy’ investor is designed to make money for the guy who is giving the investment advice. Most brokers advise their customers to buy thus and such and they get a commission on that transaction, whether the stock soars or tanks. Small companies rise and fall like the daily tides in a global market beset by constant graft, corruption, currency manipulation, and the incessant tinkering with stock markets that governments attempt to do, which only makes matters worse in the end. The commentary of Dr. Marc Faber comes as a refreshing dose of pragmatic, experienced wisdom and common sense which stands out in the sea of self-centered profiteering which seems to run most contemporary investment advisories. Dr. Faber successfully predicted the now famous 1987 US stock market rout. What he sees happening today in 2016 is not dissimilar as a prelude of events to come.

It is now very difficult to ascertain REAL market conditions, as opposed to murky smoke and mirror tactics initiated by governments designed artificially to prop them up, year in year out. Blunt truth tellers are rare in the business of assessing and forecasting where the world economy might go. Joel Skousen is one of the few men who will fearlessly tell his subscribers the truth, ugly as it may be. But today I’d like to focus on market analyst Dr. Marc Faber, who has been making specific warnings to investors since last fall about a major correction or collapse of inter-connected world markets.

The impetus for this post was an event which took place early this morning, about 2-3 am pacific time in the US. When the Chinese CSI stock market opened at 9:30, traders immediately began dumping their stocks and selling off. 29 minutes later at about 10 am, the Chinese closed the market entirely, and halted trading. Had the Chinese not halted trading, we would be now facing a worldwide market crisis of epic proportions this very afternoon. As it is, this morning’s drop of 7% in China’s stock market has caused a drastic cascading effect around the world in nearly every market exchange. Dr. Faber had begun warning investors about this very real possibility last fall.

My own opinion is that today’s events might be likened to the moment the Titanic first hit the iceberg. The damage was there, but it was beneath the surface, not yet visible. Investors have two choices: remain on the ship, believing that it was just a small bump, and that everything will be fine – or listen to the sound of the water gushing into the floors below deck and get off the sinking ship before it’s too late.  Today’s events are the sound of that initial “crunch” of the ship hitting that iceberg. Investors are forewarned.

Be willing to take the right actions necessary to protect your nest egg. And if that means getting out of the US stock market, take that action. Sometimes the very smartest thing an investor can do is just park their money for awhile. It’s worth noting that a considerable amount of money has flowed into gold, silver and the Yen today – worth considering. In one of his reports Mr. Faber stated that gold could double in the next few years, during all of this market wash-out.

Below are collected reports:

#BREAKING: North Korea Claims to Have Detonated a Hydrogen Bomb: 5.2 Artificial Earthquake Recorded

hbomb-nk

1.6.2016

A hideous ‘Happy New Year’ from the lunatic regime in North Korea came late on the evening of 1.5.2016, as the fascist hermit kingdom made claims aired on state television of having detonated their first hydrogen bomb underground, causing serious alarm around the world. US officials were quick to cast dispersion upon the announcement, stating it was doubtful the detonation had actually taken place. Such comments make many US citizens wonder whether their own government now have their collective  heads placed so deep in the sand that they may as well be dead, since they behave as if the event did not happen.

Meanwhile, back in actuality, a 5.2 Richter Scale “artificial earthquake” has been detected in North Korea, as discussed by citizen journalist and high tech patriot weatherman DutchSinse in the first video below. Notwithstanding the far-reaching political and destabilizing implications of such a reckless act, the sheer worldwide environmental and health ramifications resulting from detonating such an enormous device might take years to fully understand.

It is my urgent hope that world leaders will cease their ineffective but typical tactic of “ignoring North Korea” as a containment policy and begin fully embracing the fact that the regime of Kim Jong Un represents a dire threat to world peace, much more so than ISIS ever will.

The list of possible ‘unthinkables’ regarding North Korea are almost too numerous to even attempt to consider. The recent Clinton / Obama era foreign policy response tactic of “ignoring” North Korea has proven to be a complete failure, resulting in the morbidly obese growth of Kim Jong Un’s nearly psychotic hubris, until we have now come to the next unthinkable moment – the possibility that North Korea may have detonated a small hydrogen bomb underground on January 6th 2016. Ignoring the crazy little fat man is no longer working, and it was never the right way to handle the threat.

In the world of “most heinous” possible scenarios, should North Korea decide to sell such arms to Iran or ISIS, the probability that WW3 will become a reality may coalesce a little bit more. Now is NOT the time to continue to “ignore North Korea.” I can only pray our world leaders fully grasp that fact.

The UN Security Council quickly condemned North Korea’s actions and called an emergency session to discuss the development, if the event did actually occur. People on the street in South Korea who were interviewed expressed grave concerns, understandably. A hydrogen bomb detonated in South Korea could potentially kill or maim millions. The US military also keeps a permanent security force of about 20 to 30,000 forces stationed in the region. I’ve been scrambling to aggregate reports on this event all morning. Here’s what I have thus far:
