The Hindenburg Just Blew a Gasket

This morning after davening, I casually looked at the various market data for a few minutes.  And my eyes almost popped out of its sockets.  The Nikkei 225 Average in Japan dropped a whopping 6.35% overnight.  This is an especially precipitous drop considering that a DOW Industrial Average drop of over 2.5% is considered carnage in the American market.  To be honest, I am not a stock market whiz.  To be a whiz in the market, one has to master the art of the bandwagon of idiots effect which causes the masses to follow their instincts into this lying market today.  In short one has to be brilliant in the area of how idiots think.  And there are many brilliant people like Warren Buffet who have mastered this area of social science.

But there is something called the Hindenburg Omen, and this time it is for real.  Here are two articles on this Omen Here and Here .  I realize that we have had false starts and apparent imminent collapses before, and then the Central Bankers would come in and put on a nice big bandaid which usually involved printing more money and therefore maximizing liquidity.  The maximized liquidity would therefore overwhelm the plummet in the Velocity of that money because for all intents and purposes the Western economies are either comatose or dead since the Financial Collapse of 5768 (2008).  So they have been playing games with our minds and our sanity for almost five years.  Yet, sometimes the dam breaks.  And I am wondering aloud, is a massive 6.35% drop in the Nikkei in just one day a sign that the dam has broken?  We shall see.

Today is the Fifth of Tamuz, the day that Ezekiel saw the Chariot of G-d by the Rivers of Babylon.  Also the Walls of Yerushalayim were breached for the first time on the Ninth of Tamuz in the year 3338 at the time of the Babylonian destruction of the First Temple.

Sorry. It should be spelled Aide. He is an aide to Netanyahu.

Not only Japan. China markets also see deep losses. And Europe continues. So does TASE.

Let's pray that there will be no breach of Israel's boarders, neither by pure enemies nor by her "friends".

and nor by our internal enemies who seem possessed at poking holes in our borders...for either the sake of their own popularity, World Public Opinion, or simple cowardice. All of these reasons to poke holes in our own borders are evil, and those proposing it should be reprimanded or whipped. 20 years after Oslo and the last 8 years since the Gaza Disengagement and the incessant hatred on PA television should be enough to put duct tape on the mouths of our internal enemies, but they keep squawking.

Whether the Hindenburg blows up today from the leaking Hydrogen will likely depend on the retail sales figures in the US. Keep in mind that retail sales are often driven by getting further into credit card debt. But the social engineering science of the Stock Market can't think past 2 + 2 = 5 I mean 4.

And jobless claims of course does not include those who are no longer eligible for unemployment. All of these release of statistics are fraudulent except for a few things like real industrial production numbers (ISM Manufacturing) or Real GDP. The rest of the statistic releases are fraudulent and purposely so in order to keep the frenzy around the Pit to Hell going. It is the hole that has opened up to GeHinnom with most of the world's population dancing around it....and America is leading the charge.

The foreign exchange rigging scandal that is coming to light is very interesting, even in this time of financial scandals and corruption.

Here is the original Bloomberg story on it and you may wish to read it in its entirety.

I should point out that US bond prices are plummeting meaning interest on the US National Debt which is near 17 trillion dollars should sky-rocket, but in the minds of many stockmarket investors 2 + 2 still equals 5. So they should remain unfazed. If one is dancing around Hell's pit, one is oblivious to eternal Truths. If there are enough of these investors, it is hard to penetrate the pounding demonic beat of the music....But G-d is in control of explosions that might cause them to turn their heads.

Any increase in retail sales in nominal which means not adjusted for inflation. With QE Infinity and the printing press on full speed even if it is being done digitally, prices are going up if one includes food and basic necessities often excluded from the CPI. When looking at these stats., one always has to ask, "What if these dollar figures were adjusted for real inflation." Print money and prices go up. But no one is thinking. So the beat goes on at least for today. Yet, the hydrogen gas leak coming from the Japanese gasket is odious even if hydrogen does not really have an odor...which creates a problem that can't be seen until there is a spark.

I should point out that Japan is the world's third largest economy at 5.1 trillion dollars behind the US and China. Japan is imploding so it seems. I don't know how long it will take for what is happening there to ripple. What is happening to Japan financially is equivalent to a 9.0 on the Richter scale earthquake with worldwide implications. Tell me what they are Mayor Bloomberg. I don't expect to hear it first from him. Try Zerohedge instead.

Ok Zerohedge has spoken here

You decide where you want to bury your head at this time.

Home furnishing sales (furniture sales) are way down in the retail sales figures in the US. They were down 0.8%. Yet, "home sales" are up in previous reports. And home building materials are up in this report. This can only be the case if the homes that are being built and sold are apartment buildings while foreclosed single family homes are being kept off the market. If the economy in America was really growing in terms of consumer spending and home sales, then furniture sales would be gaining strength. And I figured this out without help from Mayor Bloomberg. Now with the literal collapse of the Japanese markets, what happens next?

Something Wicked This Way Comes:

I must admit that I have never seen anything quite like this. Japan, the third largest economy in the world, has a stock market. Its Nikkei 225 declined by 6.35% in one day. That is the equivalent of a 960 point drop in the DOW in the US. Japan as an economic player in the world is not Spain or even Italy. It is the 3rd largest economy in he world!!

Yet, in New York it seemed like no one cared. Instead of falling the NY S&P 500 had its best day of the year! Of course in the new normal where the stock market is a prisoner to the Central Banks, this all makes sense...yea.

And now the US is going to war in Syria by establishing a 25 mile no fly zone in Southern Syria. Yea! It seems that the no fly zone is in Southern Syria. Perhaps Erdogan is too pre-occupied these days to agree to a no fly zone in Northern Syria?? How will the Russians now respond??
