Redcrow And Ponzilla

Well hello there Apocalyptoids! long time no see!
There's a reason for that which we'll get to soon enough but first I want to tell you why the ole Bladerunner ain't been around much. The simple truth is that there hasn't been much in the way of Earth-shattering catastrophe to talk about lately. Sure there have been some disastrous military misadventures and the odd mysterious plane crash but to be honest there hasn't been anything I could really sink my teeth into.
   Until now that is.
I also got caught up in the world of making a living and providing for the family and to tell you the truth one starts to feel a little schizophrenic planning for the kids university years and blogging about Armageddon.
 Anyhow we find ourselves, my friends, on the edge of a very real and imminent precipice. That of financial ruin.
Back in 2008 you'll recall, all seemed lost and yet somehow, at the last hour a piece of financial black magic was woven and cast and the creaking grumbling world continued to turn. Much to the surprise of many I might add.
  We could talk of derivatives and credit default swaps all day and never reach a real understanding of how these instruments work but what I think many of us DO understand is the old fashioned Ponzi scheme.
Charles Ponzi,  was an Italian businessman and con artist in the U.S. and Canada. His aliases include Charles Ponci, Carlo and Charles P. Bianchi.[1] Born in Italy, he became known in the early 1920s as a swindler in North America for his money-making schemes. He promised clients a 50% profit within 45 days, or 100% profit within 90 days, by buying discounted postal reply coupons in other countries and redeeming them at face value in the United States as a form of arbitrage.[2][3] In reality, Ponzi was paying early investors using the investments of later investors, a practice known as "robbing Peter to pay Paul." While this swindle predated Ponzi by several years, it became so identified with him that it now bears his namesake. His scheme ran for over a year before it collapsed, costing his "investors" $20 million.
  This is generally what the banks have been doing for decades only in the last 7 years or so it has taken on the bloated grotesque proportions of a Ponzilla.
  Add to the mess a central bank dumping trillions of dollars into the system the way Tepco dumps seawater on Fukushima and you have the perfect storm that has been gathering strength for far too long.
   The time of reckoning has come Apocalyptoids. Currencys are in freefall, commodities are crashing and worst of all the Chinese house of cards is about to tumble.
   The Greek debt fiasco, while only a sideshow did offer some intriguing lessons. The greatest of which, in my opinion, was that the Greek people, faced with utterly punitive and unpayable conditions about to be imposed on them kept their money in the bank and stayed in the country. 
   What does this mean? It means that when (WHEN) it happens here the sheep will be led to their financial slaughter as easily as candy is taken from a baby. Faith in the system. It is astonishing that if the average person gives any thought at all to the state of the world's finacial institutions they think that the government will take care of them. THE GOVERNMENT WILL NOT TAKE CARE OF YOU. Clear enough? I hope so.
   When will this all go down you ask? 2015. This year. Likely October. Likely October 7th. Specificity is a wonderful thing ain't it?
  Oh yeah one more thing for now.
   No more Bladerunner. Call me Redcrow.
   Sleep well Apocalyptoids.
   More to come.

Ebola Ebola crisis: Nurse in Spain tests positive in first infection outside west Africa


A nurse in Spain has tested positive for the Ebola virus after treating a patient repatriated to Madrid from Sierra Leone, the country’s health authorities said on Monday. The nurse is thought to be the first person to have contracted the virus outside west Africa.
The auxiliary nurse was part of the team attending to a Spanish missionary with Ebola who was repatriated two weeks ago. The 69-year-old missionary, Manuel García Viejo, died just four days after being brought to Madrid’s Carlos III hospital.
Health authorities said on Monday night that the nurse was in stable condition. She had alerted them to a slight fever on 30 September, said Antonio Alemany from the regional government of Madrid, and checked into a hospital in Alcorcón with a high fever on Sunday. Ebola protocol was immediately activated at the hospital and initial and secondary tests were both positive for the virus.

“Genetic Strains of Ebola that have Never been Seen Before”. Media Lies and US Government Coverup

Here, we’ll quickly review a few very weighty MSM/U.S. Government Ebola lies before discussing what may be the most dangerous Ebola lie yet, which involves the risk of false negative Ebola tests.  The lies in the next few paragraphs are mentioned in this article primarily because they might intersect in disconcerting ways with the false negative problem—a problem the CDC and MSM would rather lie about and pretend does not exist.
The current outbreak (which actually began on or before December, 2013) presents genetic strains of Ebola that have never been seen before.  The Guinea variant of Ebola was itself novel enough to form its own clade.  Now, via Recombinomics and with respect to Sierra Leone, we have:
“The June Sierra Leone sequences have evidence of some drift from the March sequences from Guinea.  A prior Zaire sub-clade, which was found in apes and a chimpanzee and was associated with an outbreak in Gabon in 2002 had strong evidence of recombination, which raises concerns of more evolution in the current sub-clade, which has produced a record number of reported Ebola cases and deaths.”

“We just got a team on the ground over there doing an assessment of what is needed,” he said. “It is a medical emergency of proportions we haven’t seen since the plague centuries ago.”
More than 2,800 people are known to have died since late March in the outbreak, according to the latest figures from the World Health Organization.
Odierno said the Army is looking at sending logistics personnel and hospitals, with perhaps hospital staff and aviation support later.
“I think the majority, initially, of people going over will be logistics personnel that will be separated from where the disease is, in order to assist in providing support,” he said.

State Department Orders 5,000 Body Bags For Ebola Outbreak

The U.S. Agency for International Development ordered 5,000 body bags from a Florida company last month as part of its planned response to an outbreak of the Ebola virus in western Africa.
And as President Obama prepares to enlarge America’s aid to affected countries, a company that makes protective clothing says the State Department, which oversees USAID, has invited bids for 160,000 hazmat suits.
The body-bag purchase came on August 19, just after the World Health Organization said the epidemic had killed 1,000 people. That death toll is now greater than 2,400.
The size of the contracts indicates how seriously governments are taking the threat, especially considering that all 5,000 body bags were destined only for Liberia – one of three countries whose citizens have been hammered with new disease cases and paralyzed with fear.
And the purchase says nothing about what resources might be coming as part of other nations’ contributions.
Barack Obama will travel to Atlanta on Tuesday for a briefing with experts from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. His chief spokesman said Monday that the president will announce new levels of support from the U.S. to fight the disease.
The CDC has begun to warn health care workers and hospital administrators to be on the lookout for potential Ebola cases. ‘Now is the time to prepare,’ reads part of a six-page ‘checklist’ being distributed nationwide.
The agency has already deployed about 100 of its own workers to Africa, White House press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters during his daily briefing.
‘This is, if not the largest, among the largest deployments of CDC personnel – ever,’ he said.
America, Earnest added, ‘has a unique responsibility to step up in the midst of an international crisis. … Our doctors and scientists are some of the best in the world.’
The federal government as a whole has allocated $100 million in financing and other resources to assist what has become a continent-wide race against the clock to stamp out a crafty pathogen before it can spread beyond hope of containment.
That level of support, about one-sixth of what the WHO estimates is needed, ‘underscores just how extraordinarily serious the administration believes this issue is,’ said Earnest.
Obama’s visit will add a new sense of urgency, and more aid to the countries where the threat is the more dire.
‘I do anticipate that we’ll have some additional announcements to make’ on Tuesday, Earnest said, ‘about additional commitments we’re making.’
USAID’s body-bag purchase was signed August 19, a $32,500 contract with a Florida packaging company, earmarked ‘for the USAID/OFDA response to the Ebola crisis in west Africa.’
OFDA is the agency’s Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance.
Buying the body bags, however, was just the first step. USAID inked another contact on August 27 ‘for the transport of 5,000 body bags from the vendor’s facility to Liberia.’
Flying them there from warehouses in Illinois and California cost another $57,144.
It’s not clear whether the State Department’s purchase of 160,000 hazmat suits is intended to be delivered all at once, or to which countries they will be delivered.
But Lakeland Industries, based in Ronkonkoma, New York, reported on Friday that ‘the U.S. State Department alone’ has solicited bids ‘for 160,000 suits.’
‘We encourage all protective apparel companies to increase their manufacturing capacity for sealed seam garments,’ the company said in a press release, ‘so that our industry can do its part in addressing this threat to global health.’

Obama to announce Ebola force of 3,000 US military personnel Contingent being sent to west Africa will train health workers, build treatment centres and deliver resources to tackle epidemic

he Obama administration is ramping up its response to west Africa’s Ebola crisis, preparing to assign 3,000 US military personnel to the afflicted region to supply medical and logistical support to overwhelmed local healthcare systems and to boost the number of beds needed to isolate and treat victims of the epidemic.
Barack Obama is to announce the stepped-up effort on Tuesday during a visit to the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta amid alarm that the outbreak could spread and the deadly virus could mutate into a more easily transmitted disease.
There have been appeals from the region and from aid organisations for a heightened US role in dealing with the outbreak, blamed for more than 2,200 deaths.
Administration officials said on Monday that the new initiatives aimed to train as many as 500 healthcare workers a week; erect 17 healthcare facilities in the region of 100 beds each; set up a joint command headquartered in Monrovia, Liberia, to co-ordinate between US and international relief efforts; provide home healthcare kits to hundreds of thousands of households, including 50,000 that the US Agency for International Development will deliver to Liberia this week; and carry out a home and community-based campaign to train local populations on how to handle exposed patients.

16 Apocalyptic Quotes From Global Health Officials About This Horrific Ebola Epidemic

#1 Dr. Tom Frieden, the Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: "It is the world’s first Ebola epidemic, and it’s spiraling out of control. It’s bad now, and it’s going to get worse in the very near future. There is still a window of opportunity to tamp it down, but that window is closing. We really have to act now."
#2 Dr. Joanne Liu, the international president of Doctors Without Borders: "Riots are breaking out. Isolation centres are overwhelmed. Health workers on the frontline are becoming infected and are dying in shocking numbers."
#3 David Nabarro, senior United Nations system coordinator for Ebola disease: "This outbreak is moving ahead of efforts to control it."
#4 Dr. Bruce Aylward, WHO's assistant director-general for emergency operations: "This far outstrips any historic Ebola outbreak in numbers. The largest outbreak in the past was about 400 cases."
#5 Margaret Chan, the head of the World Health Organization: "...we hope to stop the transmission in six to nine months".
#6 Dr. Daniel Bausch, associate professor in the department of Tropical Medicine at Tulane University: "You have a very dangerous virus in three of the countries in the world that are least equipped to deal with it. The scale of this outbreak has just outstripped the resources. That’s why it’s become so big."
#7 Gayle Smith, senior director at the National Security Council: "This is not an African disease. This is a virus that is a threat to all humanity."
#8 Dr. Tom Frieden, the Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: "The level of outbreak is beyond anything we’ve seen—or even imagined."
#9 Vincent Martin, head of an FAO unit in Dakar:  "This is different than every other Ebola situation we've ever had. It's spreading widely, throughout entire countries, through multiple countries, in cities and very fast."
#10 Dr. Richard Besser, health and medical editor for ABC News: "Emergency rooms are closed, many hospital wards are as well leaving people who are sick with heart disease, trauma, pregnancy complications, pneumonia, malaria and all the everyday health emergencies with nowhere to go."
#11 Bukar Tijani, the UN Food and Agricultural Organization regional representative for Africa: "Access to food has become a pressing concern for many people in the three affected countries and their neighbours."
#12 Keiji Fukuda, the WHO's assistant director-general for health security: "People are hungry in these communities. They don't know how they are going to get food."
#13 Dr. Daniel Bausch, associate professor in the department of Tropical Medicine at Tulane University: "This is for sure the worst situation I've ever seen."
#14 Dr. Tom Frieden, the Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: "I could not possibly overstate the need for an urgent response."
#15 Official WHO statement: "Staff at the outbreak sites see evidence that the numbers of reported cases and deaths vastly underestimate the magnitude of the outbreak."
#16 Dr. Joanne Liu, the international president of Doctors Without Borders: "It is impossible to keep up with the sheer number of infected people pouring into facilities. In Sierra Leone, infectious bodies are rotting in the streets."

The UN’s New Report on Global Warming Is the Most Terrifying Yet

Runaway growth on the emission of greenhouse gases is swamping all political efforts to deal with the problem, raising the risk of “severe, pervasive and irreversible impacts” over the coming decades, according to a draft of a major new United Nations report.
Global warming is already cutting grain production by several percentage points, the report found, and that could grow much worse if emissions continue unchecked. Higher seas, devastating heat waves, torrential rain and other climate extremes are also being felt around the world as a result of human emissions, the draft report said, and those problems are likely to intensify unless the gases are brought under control.
The world may already be nearing a temperature at which the loss of the vast ice sheet covering Greenland would become inevitable, the report said. The actual melting would then take centuries, but it would be unstoppable and could result in a sea level rise of 23 feet, with additional increases from other sources like melting Antarctic ice, potentially flooding the world’s major cities.

WHO Warns of 'Shadow Zones', Hidden Cases in Ebola Outbreak

G
Geneva:  The scale of the world's worst Ebola outbreak has been concealed by families hiding infected loved ones in their homes and the existence of "shadow zones" that medics cannot enter, the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Friday.

The U.N. agency issued a statement detailing why the outbreak in West Africa had been underestimated, following criticism that it had moved too slowly to contain the killer virus, now spreading out of control.

Independent experts raised similar concerns a month ago that the contagion could be worse than reported because suspicious local inhabitants are chasing away health workers and shunning treatment.

More than 1,300 people have died from the disease and many experts do not expect the epidemic to be brought under control this year.

Under-reporting of cases is a problem especially in Liberia and Sierra Leone. The WHO said it was now working with Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to produce "more realistic estimates".

The head of MSF, which has urged the WHO to do more, told Reuters in an interview on Thursday that the fight against Ebola was being undermined by a lack of international leadership and emergency management skills.

Ebola Infected Patients Flee Clinic After Raid By Armed Men

As many as 29 potentially Ebola-infected patients fled a quarantine center in Monrovia overnight after it was raided by armed men.
The Guardian reports that George Williams, the head of the Health Workers Association of Liberia, said the clinic housed 29 patients who "were receiving preliminary treatment before being taken to hospital." Rebecca Wesseh, whose report of the attack was confirmed by Williams, said, "They broke down the door and looted the place. The patients have all gone."
It is not clear at this time how many patients are missing.
The AP reports that the raid was led by residents angry that Ebola patients were brought to the holding center in West Point from other parts of Monrovia. From the AP:
West Point residents went on a "looting spree," stealing items from the clinic that were likely infected, said a senior police official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to brief the press. The residents took mattresses, sheets and blankets that had bloodstains, which could spread the infection.
"All between the houses you could see people fleeing with items looted from the patients," the official said, adding that he now feared "the whole of West Point will be infected."

Putin's "Night Wolf" biker gang reportedly manning Ukraine checkpoints.


Details coming fast now. We're on it. Stay tuned.



Ukraine/Russia Smell that? That's the smell of a whole lot of sumfin' hitting a very large fan.

Right Wing Nationalists = Fascists Mark my words we are going to end up on the wrong side of this thing.
Trying to learn what is going on in Ukraine/Russia. Watching the conventional news channel on TV for the first time in over a year. What absolute shit this is. Is this what passes for journalism now? Only the BBC and CBC have the thinnest pretense of objectivity. CNN is Laughably Latte Liberal on just about every issue with talking heads who don't even seem to have a rudimentary understanding of geopolitics. Every other "News" outlet seems to be preoccupied by every fluff story about the Oscars they can find. ABSOLUTE CRAP. The networks can't understand why nobody watches anymore? Really?

Anyway, 
CNN has just declared that Russia has invaded Ukraine. The fact that this region is overwhelmingly ethnic Russian makes me wonder; how the hell do they know? "Holy crap! Southern Ukraine is full of Russians! What the hell happened!" "Must have been an invasion."

It  may be that Russia wants to deploy it's forces in the Crimea region to stabilize the nuclear missile silos scattered all over the region. Many forget that after the fall of communism the Ukraine became the world's 4th largest nuclear power.

Stay tuned Apocalyptoids, we're on this.

Taking On The Dark

Hi kids! Long time readers of this here blog will know that it was always intended as a tongue in cheek catch-all for end of the world news in the past. It has become apparent that some kind of calamitous 'event' is looming on the horizon. This may come as a surprise to some but I don't believe in The Apocalypse. That is, if by apocalypse, we are talking about God coming down from the sky full of wrath and teargas to cleanse the planet of our evil ways. There are some signs that some type of major event is going to rock our collective world however.
#1 CHEMTRAILS  They seem to be everywhere now. Somebody is making an enormous effort to modify something but what? The soil? The climate? The air? The people? Why?
#2 THE PACIFIC  Put simply, it appears to be dying. From Japan to British Columbia there is an unprecedented die-off of all forms of sea life taking place. Fukushima is spewing a gigantic plume of radiation into the air and water and no one knows what to do about it.  This has grave implications in the short term for our food supply and an even bleaker outlook long term with regards to weather patterns and oxygen production.
#3 OIL PRODUCTION Tar Sands and fracking - google 'em. Oh yeah there is talk now of "some limited nuclear fracking".
#4 THE ECONOMY STUPID The teetering financial house of cards that we call the economy. What can I say about this? Gotta admit it has lasted longer than many pundits thought it would including yours truly. Who knew the Federal Reserve could keep pumping 85 billion units of adrenaline into the patient for so long? This thing should have gone down the shitter when the real estate bubble burst in 2008. All that can be said here with any confidence is that when it falls it is going to fall hard.
Feeling cheery yet? I'm not going to tell anyone to become some half-assed  prepper or anything but it seems to me that the pillars of modern life are a bit too rickety to just keep on keepin' on as if nothing is wrong. The fact is the world is broken. However you want to define 'world'. Gaia  is sick, governments are paralyzed by indifference and incompetence and most of the sheeple are preoccupied with the trivial (to put it mildly). Look up and down your street. 90% of the people you see are up to speed on the antics of Rob Ford and Justin Bieber but most will not have heard of fracking, the Keystone pipeline or the continuing catastrophe in the Pacific.
With this in mind we are now going to veer off in new trajectory here at the ole Wave. Pointing out to one and all who is responsible for this mess. Things don't just happen. I have been sitting on information for some time that I now wish to share with the world. I warn you, some what comes your way here in the next few weeks is going to seriously challenge your worldview. Good. Come along for the ride. We're about to blow the doors off the Great Wall Of Disinformation and stir up the Matrix good.

A Little Halloween Fun

We have to lighten things up a little every once in a while. Art Bell is back on the air. This is his transmission from Halloween night. Ghost stories are always fun, especially this time of year. Art is back and the Bladerunner is happy.
