Declining exports, as lower lower income, sets off alarm bells…
Past cycles had Currency War → Trade War → Hot War (military intervention).
Experts (central planners and officials) search for ways to influence the international market…
Currency wars (higher inflation and taxes) are fueled…
What is at risk is the central bank’s international monetary system.
Central planners fear price decline (deflation), thus we can expect more market manipulations, price volatility, increasing unemployment and as people’s livelihood are threatened expect more people to lose trust in government/central bank/currency.
Expect governments to show their true character and violate the People with harsher policies and greater use of armed force.
This is the cycle we are witnessing today.
Rather than wishing for a system reset (byway of war), many People want out of the global system of control with personal sovereignty, thus alternatives are being created at the personal level and in local communities…
These people are not marching as protesters, nor pleading to officials, but rather these people are personally implementing changes in their lives.
These are the People on Earth exercising creativity and freedom to manifest a real alternative that nurtures personal sovereignty and peace.
This is the Shift in Consciousness.

India: Export Growth Dips
Economic woes continue unabated, with the industrial production contracting by 2.1% and export growth decelerating to six-month low of 3.49%, raising clamour for rate cut by the Reserve Bank in its credit policy on January 28.

*NOTE: U.S. Trade deficits have been consecutive for so long that the discussions are no longer about trade deficit needs to be balanced, but rather spun as less deficit seen as good economic surprise! The same trick is also used in the United Kingdom.

Military interventions are financed by Corporates not politicians – All Wars Are Bankers’ Wars
In the last eight years, trillions of dollars have flowed to military and homeland security companies. When the administration starts a war like Libya, it is a windfall for companies who are given generous contracts to produce everything from replacement missiles to ready-to-eat meals.
In the first 10 days of the Libyan war alone, the administration spent roughly $550m. That figure includes about $340m for munitions – mostly cruise missiles that must be replaced.

Japan’s Military Posture
The government will nationalize about 280 islands whose ownership is unknown out of the about 400 remote islands that serve as markers for determining Japan’s territorial waters, the state minister for oceanic policy and territorial issues has announced.
The plan, announced Tuesday (7 Jan 2014), the government will complete its search for the islands’ owners by June. Islands whose owners have not been tracked down by then will be registered on the national asset ledger.
The move aims to clarify the government’s intention to protect territories and territorial waters by designating remote islands as “important national territories,” and to reinforce the management of marine resources and national security.
China’s Military Posture
…the regular incursions by US ships across the so-called first island chain defined by the Diaoyudao (Senkakus) Taiwan and the Spratlys. For that reason the PLA has assiduously built up an arsenal meant to keep US carrier groups at a distance. Among them are so-called carrier-killer ballistic missiles, the J-20 stealth attack jet, stealthy drones equipped with missiles and precision munitions, the Liaoning and other aircraft carriers, destroyers equipped with advanced battle-management radar systems, attack submarines, and surveillance ships and planes.
China Plans To Seize South China Sea Island From Philippines, Says “Battle Will Be Restricted”
The Philippines is reportedly planning to build up infrastructure on Zhongye Island this year. The projects include the construction of a world-class airport, capable of housing larger aircraft.
Russia’s Military Posture
A decision on whether to deploy tactical ballistic missiles near borders with NATO countries will be made only following a threat assessment by the Russian military, Russia’s top diplomat said Friday.
MOSCOW, January 3 (RIA Novosti) – The Russian military plans to test around 70 types of rocket and missile weaponry at a major testing site this year, a Defense Ministry spokesman has said.
The testing program at the Kapustin Yar range in southern Russia will include about 300 launches of rockets, missiles, and aerial drones as part of more than 180 R&D projects, said Colonel Igor Yegorov.
He stated that US missile defense remains a threat to Russian national security and that Russia has the right to place Iskander missiles in Kaliningrad, but claimed that that step had not yet been taken. Putin added however that putting Iskander missiles in Kaliningrad would be a logical response to American plans to build a missile defense system in Europe. What few in the West, outside a handful of military experts grasp, however, is that the US project to install so-called Ballistic Missile Defense missiles and special radar in Poland, the Czech Republic, Turkey and Bulgaria is the highly provocative act by Washington against Russia and risks putting the world on a hair-trigger to a nuclear war.

Along with the general reform of the space industry, Russia plans to qualitatively increase the space military forces to improve the strategic nuclear missiles and capacity building of precision-guided conventional means.
President Vladimir Putin said in a late November defense meeting that orbital space grouping has grown considerably with five spacecraft joining this year and five more scheduled to launch before the end of this year. Next year six new spacecraft will be put into orbit as well as a trial launch of modern rocket Angara.
In March 2014 Russia is expecting its first launches of military spacecraft, which were delayed for several years for technical reasons. In addition, construction will begin of terrestrial infrastructures. According to preliminary estimates, this is expected to cost several trillion rubles up to 2020.

The American economy added a disappointing 74,000 jobs in December. But Canada lost 45, 900 – the country’s worst rate in nine months.
The Canadian jobless rate jumped to 7.2 percent, surpassing the American rate of 6.7 for the first time since September 2008.

A Calgary woman’s developmentally disabled son is caught in a U.S. tax quagmire that she fears may cost him the money she spent years setting aside for his financial future.
Her 40-year-old son was born in a Calgary hospital, but automatically received U.S. citizenship because both his parents were American. That simple fact may soon create financial woes for the Tapanila family.
Mass Surveillance and Privacy Lost
No matter which government conducts mass surveillance, they also do it to crush dissent, and then give a false rationale for why they’re doing it.
