Second Dire Government Warning To Prepare Now For ‘Catastrophic Power Outage’ That Could Last Months, Is Released
by Susan Duclos, All News Pipeline:
Two separate reports, one from the U.S. military and another posted to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) website this week, have been issued on the heels of one another, warning of potential attacks that would affect the power grid.
In late November the U.S. military issued a report titled “Electromagnetic Defense Task Force,” which sought to warn the nation that “an electromagnetic spectrum attack may be a threat to the United States, democracy, and the world order,” and supported congressional testimony that an effective EMP attack, could kill 90 percent of “all Americans” within one year. (ANP referenced and embedded that report in previous articles here and here)
In that report the military warned of nuclear reactor meltdowns, displaced Americans, civil unrest that would start in “hours,” failures may include long-term loss of electrical power (due to loss of emergency generators), sewage, fresh water, banking, landlines, cellular service, vehicles,” and that it could take up to “18 months or more are required to replace key elements of the electric grid that would be damaged or knocked out.”

Washington’s doublethink on Syria’s civil war and chemical weapons.
While it received almost no coverage in the Western media, the United States Department of State has made its final determination on the November 24, 2018 chemical attack in northwestern Aleppo.
In case you have forgotten, on November 24, 2018, as reported on Sputniknews, the Russian military stated that “terrorist groups” had fired 120 mm mortars at neighbourhoods on the north-west side of Aleppo. The mortars were fired from a location in the demilitarized buffer zone between rebel and government forces. According to Sputnik, the 120 millimetre shells appear to have been filled with chlorine and resulted in the hospitalization of 94 civilians including women and children. This resulted in actions by Russian forces which claimed to eliminate the rebels responsible for the attack.

The International Monetary Fund is sounding the alarms of another global crisis. IMF is warning that the storm clouds are currently gathering for another financial crisis.
According to a report by The Guardian, David Lipton, the first deputy managing director of the IMF, said that “crisis prevention is incomplete” more than a decade on from the last meltdown in the global banking system. Not only that but on an individual basis, people are largely unprepared for a major financial downturn. “As we have put it, ‘fix the roof while the sun shines.’ But like many of you, I see storm clouds building and fear the work on crisis prevention is incomplete,” Lipton said.

Since the beginning of this year, I have been warning that trade tariffs initiated by Donald Trump would develop into a full-blown trade war with China, and perhaps other nations, and that the timing of this trade war is rather suspicious. Suspicious how? Almost every instance of further escalation was made by Trump around the exact time that the Federal Reserve was also making a large cut to its balance sheet or raising interest rates. Instead of focusing on the fact that extreme volatility has returned to markets because central banks are pulling the plug on life support, the mainstream media is holding up the trade war as the ultimate culprit behind the accelerating crash.
from The Daily Bell:
A DEA agent is accused of facilitating drug trafficking in the regions he oversaw in Florida and Arkansas. He allegedly traded inside information to drug runners in exchange for cash.
Drugs are illegal. But you can still run drugs with the right person being paid off. And you can do it for very little money–this agent got around $62,000 from one dealer for his role.
That is enough money to easily corrupt an individual, but a small price to pay compared to how much a drug dealer can make. Especially when you have the DEA looking the other way and giving you a heads up before raids.
