Getting Ready for the Big One: February 2014 | ToTheTick™ToTheTick™.

Getting ready for Christmas? What’s Santa got in his sack for you this year? Well, if there’s one thing you should be preparing for, then it can only be the big crash of February 2014. The signs have been there for months now and it’s definitely now on the books for February next year. Santa will be emptying his sack and it won’t be presents that will be falling from the sky as his sleigh goes whizzing past us.

Preordained Events

Stick the date in your diary, pop it on your iPad and synch it with your iPhone. Use them while you can, because they will be relics of the past most undoubtedly in the coming months. You won’t be needing anything in the future, once the financial world implodes and it is set to happen in February 2014.

If we were in 1929, this would be June 1929, just a few months before the crash happened back then. Yes, we can say whatever we like with numbers, but like cameras, there are some calculations that never seem to lie. Businesssweek’sTom DeMark, a financial analyst has put together indicators that are able to predict movements of the market with surprising accuracy. DeMark states that “the market’s going to have one more rally, then once we get above that high, I think it’s going to be treacherous. I think it’s all preordained right now”.

Some might be saying that we didn’t need a crystal ball and we had no need for mathematics either to show that. You just had to look at how the Federal Reserve has bounced the financial markets back into a false-sense of security without actually doing anything at all to change the economy. Where’s the employment, where’s the increase in industry? It’s in the past. The only thing that is there right now is the virtual prosperity of the financiers and the banks. The next US shutdown and arrival at the debt ceiling will be just in time too for the biggest crash in history and will probably be linked.

Cash in on the last rise of the financial markets before what has been set down long ago comes of age and ripens completely. After that, who knows! You’ll have to buy low and wait a long time before the markets move back up.

The chart that compares pre-1929 and today is uncannily identical. Take a look for yourself. Pooh-pooh it, refuse to see it, do whatever you wish, but the crash will be coming and it’s the banks that started it all. The government will finish it all. God bless America! Game over! Goodnight!

DeMark's Market Predictions

It’s something when you end up witnessing the downfall of your own country. Some have been predicting it for years now and have been shouted down. They will be consoled by ‘I-told-you-so’ vociferating. But, it’s doubtless if that will help them anymore than anyone else.

The number of companies that is pushing the stock markets higher is narrowing at an alarming rate and there are a handful today that are taking the markets higher. That handful will gradually reduce and collapse. The eggs that were put into one basket by Ben Bernanke will end up being splattered on Janet Yellen’s face as she takes over. She should get out now while she can! The few companies that are dragging the financial market up by the collar are distorting the perception of the rest of the companies there and so speculation is becoming greater and greater.

January will see the bull rush on the financial markets for the last time. Then things will fall dramatically. You’ve been warned.

Yet again, those that believe they know will turn their noses up and say it’s never going to happen. Granted, the markets are unpredictable. But, there is one thing we all have to agree on, they are buoyant on nothing right now. They are increasing without any reason to do so. That won’t last at all.

January is named after the ancient Roman mythological God Janus. He’s the god of beginnings and transitions, changes and endings or new beginnings. This year Janus, the gateway god, will be looking back into the past to 1929, stopping off on the way at the financial crisis of 2007/2008. But, he isn’t two-faced for nothing.

He’ll be looking into the future and pin-pointing February as the time you’ll need to take cover. Forget the financial crisis of yesteryear or yester-century. This one will be the biggest, the best, the most of everything you could imagine.

The Americans always did excel in verbose language and hyperbole. They always did excel at showing the world that they were the top of the roost and the best at whatever they did. As the last beats of Auld Lange Syne play out, ringing in your ears, the Americans will be surely remembered as those that started it all. Well done the Federal Reserve; well done the successive governments.

Above all, well done the banksters, the gangsters of the financial world. Let’s remember the old acquaintances… Shid ald akwentans bee firgot, an nivir brocht ti mynd?

 

Ontario power rates to rise under new plan – Toronto – CBC News

Energy rates to rise

Energy rates to rise 2:36

The Ontario government has unveiled its long-term energy strategy and if you’re paying a power bill, you can expect to pay up to 33 per cent more in coming years.

 

The average monthly bill in Ontario right now is around $125 per month. By 2016, that will jump to $167 a month. Within 20 years, the average bill will rise to $210 per month.

 

One of the factors is the end of the Ontario Clean Energy Benefit, which currently knocks 10 per cent off part of your hydro bill. There are no plans to continue that program beyond 2015.

 

Instead, the Wynne government will introduce programs aimed an encouraging ratepayers to use less power.

Boost in conservation efforts

The government expects Ontarians to boost conservation by 11 per cent over 20 years by making the following changes:

  • A possible rise in the price difference between peak and off-peak hours for power use.
  • A new program to offer loans for renovations that boost energy efficiency, with the cost added to the user’s monthly hydro bill.
  • Changes to allow each ratepayer to view their electricity usage rates compared and contrasted with those of their neighbours.

The Liberals will still proceed with upgrades to nuclear reactors at the Darlington and Bruce generating stations starting in 2016. The government also plans to shut down the Pickering nuclear station by 2020.

 

The government says though rates are going up, they are not as high as predicted in the last energy plan released three years ago.

The opposition argues this is not good news, saying the reason the province doesn’t need new sources of power is because so many manufacturing jobs have been lost in Ontario.

The Progressive Conservatives said the Liberal power strategy will fail to bring back lost jobs and will drive companies out of the province.

 

 

“This is a government that’s actually doubled hydro rates and chased 300,000 manufacturing jobs out of the province,” said PC Leader Tim Hudak.

NDP Leader Andrea Horwath said Ontario families and businesses pay the highest electricity rates in Canada because of the Liberal government’s policies.

“This doesn’t look like a plan for affordable power,” Horwath told the legislature. “It looks like a desperate government trying to hold on to political power.”

CBC’s flagship news program sold favorable coverage to the Harper government, then lied about it – Boing Boing

CBC’s flagship news program sold favorable coverage to the Harper government, then lied about it

 at 6:46 am Wed, Nov 13, 2013

Jesse Brown from the Canadaland podcast (RSS) writes: “CBC News has made a bad error in judgment. They sold news coverage to the Harper government, who were seeking publicity for a shipwreck salvaging expedition which, in a federal Minister’s words, is an effort to “enhance” Canada’s sovereignty claims in the Arctic. The government is embroiled in a land claim dispute with Russia; both nations covet the massive oil and gas deposits that are thought to reside beneath the the Arctic Ocean. The CBC covered the government’s (fruitless) salvage expedition with fawning stories across its platforms: there’s a dedicated news website and a two-part documentary that aired on The National, CBC’s flagship newscast. CBC Chief Correspondent Peter Mansbridge himself reported live from the Arctic on a Parks Canada boat, at no time informing viewers that the subjects of his story had paid for his presence.”

Bangladeshi journalists have said the government is threatening the freedom of the press in the country.The ruling Awami League has shut down TV stations and detained a prominent newspaper editor in the past few months in an apparent bid to restrict the media.

Opponents say it is part of a political strategy ahead of next year’s elections, but the government says the measures are necessary after months of violent protests.
