Reuters Reports:

A major earthquake rocked Haiti, killing possibly thousands of people as it toppled the presidential palace and hillside shanties alike. The quake’s epicenter was only 10 miles from Port-au-Prince. About 4 million people live in the city and surrounding area. Aftershocks as powerful as 5.9 rattled the city throughout the night and into Wednesday.

The quake hit at 5 p.m. (2200 GMT), and witnesses reported people screaming “Jesus, Jesus” running into the streets as offices, hotels, houses and shops collapsed. Experts said the quake’s epicenter was very shallow at a depth of only 6.2 miles, which was likely to have magnified the destruction.

The presidential palace lay in ruins, its domes fallen on top of flattened walls. CNN reported on its website that Haitian Ambassador Joseph said President Rene Preval was safe, but gave no further details.

Bloodied and dazed survivors gathered in the open and corpses were pinned by debris.

The United Nations said a large number of its personnel were unaccounted for after a five-story building at its headquarters collapsed.

“The whole city is in darkness. You have thousands of people sitting in the streets with nowhere to go,” said Rachmani Domersant, an operations manager with the Food for the Poor charity. “There are people running, crying, screaming.”

Please keep your prayers and thoughts for the people of Haiti and all the good people on this earth.

Shoppers picked through half-empty shelves at the Game-Zone electronics store in Caracas yesterday after a surge in demand drove up sales 70 percent over the weekend, said salesman Xavier Manrique. Colgate, the world’s largest toothpaste-maker, forecast a charge of up to 6 cents a share each quarter this year and Clorox Co., the biggest bleach maker, said it expects as much as $30 million in Venezuelan currency-related losses.

Chavez’s threats to seize businesses that raise prices following the first devaluation in five years may deepen shortages by making companies hesitate to restock, said Juan Pablo Fuentes, an economist at Moody’s He forecasts inflation could reach 60 percent, the highest since 1996 and more than double the government’s forecast.

“It’s going to be a tough year,” Fuentes said in a telephone interview from West Chester, Pennsylvania. “The devaluation has an immediate impact on consumers. You’re going to see a sharp contraction in consumption, which is the main driver for GDP.”

Now, the real question is when will a monetary event hit the shores of the United States. Americans are just waking up to the fact that we have experienced a massive devaluation of the U.S. dollar over the last 35 years and are just approaching the land of no return. Hyperinflation is sure to set in as an unprecendented decade of record spending, borrowing, and budget deficits threaten to topple the almighty dollar into oblivion.


Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez on Sunday ordered soldiers to seek out businesses raising prices after a sharp devaluation of the Bolivar currency last week, saying his government will not tolerate price speculation.  Chavez’s government devalued Venezuela’s Bolivar currency on Friday, setting two rates of 2.6 and 4.3 against the dollar. 

The Bolivar now has two rates set against the dollar.

The Bolivar’s weakening is tied to soaring inflation, which peaked at 103 percent in 1996 when the government of former President Rafael Caldera lifted price and foreign exchange controls. Inflation in 2009 was 25.1 percent, the highest rate in the Americas.

The Venezuelan government is not the only one experiencing financial turmoil from overspending on a vast welfare state.  Chile is in trouble, North Korea, Greece, Iceland, the U.K., the United States, and many  more countries are all vulnerable to a collapsing currency due to overspending, stimulus, and bailouts.  It has been shown over and over that when governments dictate the value of fiat currency, the end game is near.


In the wake of the largest bank fraud in U.S. history, I chose to go off the grids.  I cancelled my banks accounts and turned in the credit cards vowing to wean myself off of the electronic fiat monetary system forever.  The decision did not happen all at once.  It was the result of working at Wells Fargo as a  mortgage banker for some years, getting fake rich, nearly losing my life, witnessing the sub prime mortgage crisis as an insider, and all the time exhaustively researching and learning about the super rich transglobal multi-generational families that have owned the banking systems and right to print money for decades.

The all seeing eye of the Illuminati is on the back of every dollar.

I was shocked to learn the truth behind paper money and banking practices.  It is illegal, unconstitutional, and most of all, immoral.  I was facing a moral crossroads.  One road led me to material riches, social esteem, comfort, and bliss.  The other road leads through a series of trials and tribulations and ultimately to a place that we cannot fully comprehend.  In one, the fuel is money and the other is fueled by faith.

I have been biking to and from work everyday.

It is winter time in Minnesota.  I have been biking thirty miles every day from Saint Paul to Saint Louis Park.  It is freezing cold outside, but my body remains warm.  As I am riding under the black morning sky, I reflect on the life of Jesus.  If Jesus was here right now, what would He do?


Costa Rica's Turrialba volcano has erupted for the first time in more than a century.

This hits especially close to home because my sister, niece, and nephew live in Costa Rica. My parents are scheduled to go there to visit in less than a week. I told them to instruct my sister to come home ASAP. This is the time when everyone should return home to their families and loved ones.

Costa Rica’s Turrialba volcano has erupted for the first time in more than a century, spewing ash and prompting the evacuation of a small group of people living in nearby communities.

Authorities monitoring Turrialba’s activity increased a volcano alert level Wednesday, saying “intense” but “low” seismic activity continued in the crater area.

Officials also say winds could blow some of the ash from the 3,328-meter volcano toward the Costa Rican capital, San Jose.
