Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia

In a public speech in the main Moscow cathedral, Patriarch Kirill said the signs from the Book of Revelation are now apparent. He also called on politicians and ordinary citizens to unite and stop the movement towards the abyss.

“All people who love the Motherland must be together because we are entering a critical period in the course of human civilization. This can already be seen with the naked eye. You have to be blind not to notice the approaching awe-inspiring moments in history that the apostle and evangelist John was talking about in the Book of Revelation,” the patriarch was quoted as saying by Interfax.

Patriarch Kirill added, however, that the exact time of the end times depends on everyone’s actions. He called on people to understand their responsibility regarding Russia and the whole of mankind, and to stop “the movement towards the end of history’s abyss.”

He emphasized that many representatives of the modern Russian intelligentsia are repeating the mistakes made by their predecessors, who led the country into the ruinous revolutionary events of the early 20th century.

“Today is the wrong time to rock the boat of human passions because there is already too much negative influence on people’s spiritual lives,” Kirill said.

Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia turned 71 on Monday. After holding mass in Moscow’s Christ the Savior Cathedral, the Holy Synod presented the head of the Russian Orthodox Church with a copy of ceremonial headwear worn by Patriarch Tikhon – the man who was elected head of the Church 100 years ago.

Gold price will explode & Dollar get wiped out, warns investor Peter Schiff









 






Peter Schiff was among the few economists who correctly predicted the financial crisis in 2008. Ten years later, he sees another crisis emerging: a crisis that can crash the stock market and wipe out the US dollar.

“I predicted a lot more than just the stock market going down back then. I predicted the financial crisis, but more importantly, I predicted what the government would do as a result of the financial crisis and what the consequences of that would be because that’s where we’re headed. The real crash I wrote about in my most recent book is still coming,” Schiff said in an article posted by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com and quoted by ZeroHedge.

According to Schiff, the US Fed has inflated a gigantic bubble, which is impossible to pop, but when it bursts, the consequences would be very painful for the economy and much bigger than the 2008 meltdown.

“I think this bubble is too big to pop. I think it’s the mother of all bubbles, and when it bursts, there is not a bigger one that the Fed is going to be able to inflate to mask these problems, meaning we can’t kick the can down the road anymore. This time, the crisis is going to hit everyone in the wallet,” he said.

He compared the $20 trillion US debt to a camel loaded with straws.

“How many straws can you put on a camel’s back? You don’t know until you put that final straw that’s one too many and you break his back. So, can we go to $25 trillion in debt? Maybe. At some point, we are going to break the back of the camel with all this debt. Then we are going to find out how much debt we can pile on, and it’s not going to be pretty,” Schiff said.

“Everybody is going to lose. Everybody is going to get wiped out who has been partying in the stock market, the bond market and the real estate market. The dollar is going to tank, and purchasing power is going to get wiped out.”

Schiff says the current financial system would also fail to artificially curb the prices of precious metals.

“They can’t keep doing it, and it will end. It’s just like how much debt can we take on. It’s not an unlimited amount. We will know when we get there. How long can they keep the price of gold suppressed? We will know when we get there. At some point, the price is going to explode because there is real physical buying, and all that paper selling can’t camouflage that,” said the money manager.

According to Schiff, gold is the real alternative to fiat money, and people are starting to doubt they can really trust central banks.

“People don’t trust fiat currencies…More and more people are looking for alternatives, and the real alternative is gold. When they embrace it, it’s going to overwhelm the central banks’ ability to suppress the price. In the meantime, enjoy the gift that they are giving,” he said.

Richard McLaren warns Russia of tougher sanctions for continued ‘statements of denial’

Speaking at Tuesday’s Play the Game conference in Eindhoven, Netherlands, McLaren said that the country’s reluctance to admit the findings of his reports only aggravates the calamitous situation in which Russia has been placed. He had been authorized by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) to investigate doping allegations against Russia.

“First of all, I would like to know if they have actually read the report,” McLaren said, AFP reported. “The more you continue to express those kinds of statements of denial, the more you build the case for a stronger set of sanctions against yourself.”

His comments were made in response to statements by the Russian Investigative Committee, claiming that Grigory Rodchenkov, the former head of the Moscow Anti-Doping laboratory, had himself supplied athletes with drugs and orchestrated the tampering of test results.

‘We intend to demand extradition of Rodchenkov from US’ – Russian Investigative Committee

Rodchenkov’s testimony formed the basis of McLaren’s report. The Canadian lawyer, however, believes the former laboratory head would not provide false testimony in his current position.

“In the position [Rodchenkov] is in, I think that it would be extremely dangerous to lie,” McLaren noted in defending the man, whose statements formed the basis for his two WADA-sanctioned doping reports.

Rodchenkov faces charges of abuse of authority in his home country and will be arrested if returns to Russia. On Tuesday, Russian businessman and owner of the NBA team Brooklyn Nets Mikhail Prokhorov stated his intention to initiate legal proceedings in the US against Rodchenkov.

Russian authorities, including Sports Minister Pavel Kolobkov, have repeatedly denied any state involvement in alleged doping violations, which have already led to the disqualification of 19 Russian athletes who competed in Sochi. All of those athletes received life bans from competing in any future Olympics, and had their Sochi records voided by the International Olympic Committee (IOC).

The McLaren report also resulted in a ban on the Russian athletics team at the Rio Olympics and blanket ban on the Russian Paralympic team at the following Games in 2016. Russian athletes who have not been affected by the IOC sanctions are still preparing for the upcoming Olympics in PyeongChang amid continued uncertainty over the country’s participation at the Games. The IOC will decide whether to allow Russian athletes to compete in South Korea at its executive board meeting on December 5 in Lausanne, Switzerland.

A week before the IOC’s meeting, several international federations, including the International Ice-Hockey Federation (IIHF) and International Luge Federation (FIL) called on IOC members not to punish clean Russian athletes and to grant them entry into the 2018 Games.

Moody’s Warns Cities to Address Climate Risks or Face Downgrades

Coastal communities from Maine to California have been put on notice from one of the top credit rating agencies: Start preparing for climate change or risk losing access to cheap credit.

In a report to its clients Tuesday, Moody’s Investors Service Inc. explained how it incorporates climate change into its credit ratings for state and local bonds. If cities and states don’t deal with risks from surging seas or intense storms, they are at greater risk of default.

“What we want people to realize is: If you’re exposed, we know that. We’re going to ask questions about what you’re doing to mitigate that exposure,” Lenny Jones, a managing director at Moody’s, said in a phone interview. “That’s taken into your credit ratings.”

In its report, Moody’s lists six indicators it uses “to assess the exposure and overall susceptibility of U.S. states to the physical effects of climate change.” They include the share of economic activity that comes from coastal areas, hurricane and extreme-weather damage as a share of the economy, and the share of homes in a flood plain.

Based on those overall risks, Texas, Florida, Georgia and Mississippi are among the states most at risk from climate change. Moody’s didn’t identify which cities or municipalities were most exposed.

FDA’s recent attack on Kratom based on lies and junk science, warns herbal group

Image: FDA’s recent attack on Kratom based on lies and junk science, warns herbal group

(Natural News)
“The thing that bugs me is that the people think the FDA is protecting them – it isn’t. What the FDA is doing and what the public thinks it’s doing are as different as night and day.” These are the words of Dr. Herbert L. Ley Jr., spoken in an interview with the New York Times in 1969. Dr. Ley was appointed Commissioner for the Food and Drug Administration in 1968, but his tenure was cut short because his bold decision-making adversely affected the financial interests of the pharmaceutical industry. He tried to stop the market of pharmaceutical products approved between 1938 and 1962 that had no proof of efficacy.

Decades later, it is now obvious that the FDA is just a front of consumer protection, a vessel for the pharmaceutical industry to exert its power. The FDA’s recent attack on the herb Kratom is a perfect example of how the pharmaceutical industry speaks through the government and uses its police power to stifle safe, plant-based medicines that could set people free from addictive and deadly pharmaceuticals. (Related: FDA building their own private army, with body armor and military weapons.)

FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb recently warned the public about the “deadly risks” of Kratom. Gottlieb said the FDA “must use its authority to protect the public from addictive substances like kratom.” Gottlieb warns, “Calls to US poison control centers regarding kratom have increased 10-fold from 2010 to 2015, with hundreds of calls made each year. The FDA is aware of reports of 36 deaths associated with the use of kratom-containing products.”

Now the American Kratom Association (AKA) is calling out the FDA on their most recent attack, which is based on lies and junk science in order to protect the market for addictive, destructive pharmaceutical opioids. The AKA has called on Gottlieb to rescind his attack on kratom. The AKA says the warning is based on “discredited, incomplete, and mischaracterized scientific claims.”

Earlier in 2016, the Drug Enforcement Agency threatened to add the plant to the list of controlled substances. The pharmaceutical industry wanted to place Kratom on the list of schedule one drugs, next to cannabis, claiming they are both addictive with no medical benefit. The truth is that both plants are used to help people recover from addictive pharmaceutical opioids.

The problem with the Kratom market is not the plant itself, but the “kratom-containing products” that are being put together by untrustworthy sellers. Kratom can easily be laced with pharmaceutical opioids such as hydrocodone which can cause serious side effects like liver damage and seizures. The other problem with the Kratom market is the misuse of the herb, as people have little understanding of the plant’s indications and contraindications and potential for misuse.

A pure Kratom powder or extract contains alkaloids that work on the natural opiate receptor agonists in the body. If the plant is misused, then yes, addiction can occur. The body can build up tolerance to the analgesic effects of this plant. The properties of the plant also have differing effects on the body at different dosages. Finding the proper dosage is crucial for experiencing its various sedative, stimulant, and analgesic effects. Each person’s body absorbs the alkaloids differently. People across the world are using kratom for treatment for arthritis, restless legs syndrome, fibromyalgia, and to get off prescription opioids.

If the FDA blindly goes after Kratom then they have completely ignored the actual problems of tainted products and herb misuse. The FDA could instead establish trustworthy sources and sellers of the herb and set guidelines on what consumers should look for in a trustworthy product. The guidelines could also include dosage instructions, indications and contraindications so the herb is not misused.

Some at the FDA, such as Dr. Dan Fabricant of the Dietary Supplement Programs, propose a compromise that would allow kratom products to come to market as long as the ingredients undergo a process called the New Dietary Ingredient Notification process. FDA Commissioner Gottlieb, on the other hand, wants the herb to be banned and developed as a drug instead. Simply banning the herb will do nothing but guarantee pharmaceutical companies a license to addict and kill people with their brand of synthetic opioids, while incarcerating the public over something that they can learn to use for natural, effective pain management.

Celebrity trainer warns: Sodas are worse than cigarettes they’re detrimental to your health, wallet, and the environment

Image: Celebrity trainer warns: Sodas are worse than cigarettes — they’re detrimental to your health, wallet, and the environment

(Natural News)
Just like cigarettes, carbonated drinks are dangerous to your health, the environment, and your wallet. If you got used to drinking sodas with your meal, you better watch out – you’ll be more likely to develop obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases.

Jillian Michaels, a celebrity fitness trainer, spoke against the dangers of drinking soda. She says that drinking sodas is much worse than smoking cigarettes, and we all know that cigarette smoking is extremely unhealthy. She goes on to say that switching to sparkling water replaced her habit of drinking sodas, which is definitely healthier than those carbonated sugar mixtures.

Sodas may just be drinks, but they can be a form of addiction too. The caffeine or sugar content is highly addictive, and more so when combined. A single can of soda may have up to 40 grams of added sugar (not natural), higher than the American Heart Association‘s (AHA) recommended sugar intake of 35 grams per day. Most Americans have to admit, they don’t have just one can per day. One way to get rid of a bad habit is to replace it with a good one, such as what Michaels did with her soda habit.

Forty-eight percent of the total population of Americans drink sodas on a daily basis, at a rate of 2.6 glasses per day. Fastfood diets combined with unhealthy soft drinks make for an unhealthy population. Statistics also show that 35 to 40 percent of male and female Americans are obese, and one in five American deaths are associated with obesity. If these numbers do not affect your views on soda drinking, then you might have a problem in your hands.

Aside from sugar and caffeine, sodas also have various chemicals in its concoctions. Since soda companies don’t really reveal their recipes, you’ll never know what they actually put in them. Some of these ingredients are phosphoric acid, high fructose corn syrup, citric acid, Bisphenol-A (BPA), sodium benzoate, caramel color and artificial dyes, and caffeine. If you don’t know what most of them are, you’re better off avoiding those drinks than gaining pounds and risking your health drinking them.

It may be difficult at first, but replacing soda with water isn’t that difficult. Michaels offered some advice, saying that you can add some natural juices to your water if you find it too bland. Adding some cucumber slices, oranges, or lemon to your water helps with consuming a full glass. You can even variate your glass with other fruits. If you have the time, prepare your own natural fruit and vegetable drinks. While they may add calories to your diet, they are natural, and the sugars in those fruits are healthy. Another replacement for soda would be tea. Green tea is not only delicious, but is also an antioxidant.

The Institute of Medicine in Nepal recommends a total of 2.7 liters of water per day for women, and 3.7 liters of water per day for men. That’s 21.6 glasses of water for women and 29.6 glasses of water for men. If you’re not having enough, you should rethink your priorities. Besides, drinking water has a lot of health benefits:

  • It increases your energy level and relieves fatigue.
  • Drinking water promotes weight loss by reducing your food intake.
  • Water flushes out toxins in your body through excretion
  • It improves your skin complexion, a natural anti-aging solution.
  • It maintains proper digestions and prevents constipation.
  • It boosts your immune system by hydrating your internal organs and providing enough oxygen to your blood cells.
  • It’s a natural headache, back ache, and migraine reliever.
  • Proper hydration keeps your joints lubricated and helps keep muscles elastic, preventing painful cramps.
  • Water puts you in a good mood by making your body function properly.
  • And simply, it saves you tons of money!

Poland insists Bialowieza logging lawful, EU court warns of fines

Poland reacted coolly to a warning that it may incur fines for continuing to log in the Bialowieza forest, a UNESCO World Heritage site, asserting on Tuesday that its actions were lawful, Reuters reports. The Luxembourg-based European Court of Justice said on Monday that Poland would be fined €100,000 ($117,360.00) a day if it did not stop large-scale logging in the ancient forest, which straddles the border between Poland and Belarus. Environment Minister Jan Szyszko did not clarify whether Poland planned to halt logging in order to avoid the fine, saying only: “We fulfill the tribunal’s recommendations 100 percent.” The court reiterated its July stance that Poland must stop the logging immediately pending a final ruling in a case that the EU’s Brussels-based executive brought before the tribunal.
