Bernie Sanders defeated Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire’s primary with 60 percent of the vote, but that’s not the end of the story. Because of a peculiarity in the Democratic Party’s nominating system, Clinton will likely receive more delegates from the state.

New Hampshire has 24 pledged delegates that are assigned based on the proportion of the popular vote received. Sanders received 60 percent of support in New Hampshire’s Democratic primary, giving him 15 pledged delegates. Hillary Clinton received 38 percent of the votes, putting her pledged delegate count at nine.

This seems simple enough, but Democratic National Committee’s method of assigning delegates complicates the matter. There are eight “superdelegates,” party officials that are free to support any candidate they please – even if that support does not align with the wishes of voters. Six of those superdelegates have committed to Clinton, giving her a total of 15 delegates from New Hampshire as of Wednesday afternoon. The two remaining superdelegates have not committed for either candidate yet.

Q: Sanders got 146k votes in NH, Clinton got 93k; yet she will get 15 delegates, and he only 13. Why?
A: Fairness.

Bernie beat Hillary by 22% but she’ll break even in New Hampshire because of SuperDelegates. That is not democracy. The system is rigged.

Clinton had a razor-thin victory in Iowa followed up by a crushing defeat in New Hampshire, putting her pledged delegated of 32 behind Sanders’s 36. However, Clinton has an imposing lead over Sanders thanks to her 45-to-1 superdelegate advantage. She now has 431 delegates of all types supporting her, while Sanders only has 52, according to CNN.

There are 712 superdelegates in the DNC primaries. A Democratic presidential candidate needs 2,383 delegates of any type out of the 4,763 total to win the nomination.

Update by Sheldan Nidle for the Spiritual Hierarchy and the Galactic Federation

2 Chicchan, 18 Yax, 12 Manik

Selamat Jalwa! We have received good news! The delivery process continues to move forward. As always, this process is made more complex by the fact that the dark cabal fully realizes what is now happening across this globe. The forces of the Light are using the edge gained by the actions of its allies and associates to force this cabal from power. Long ago, when their Anunnuki masters were overlords of this surface world, such activities as we are presently proceeding with were, of course, impossible. These dark oligarchs were not counting on what a number of grievous mistakes brought them. They are on the verge of a great downfall, which is to give you a new time filled with freedom, prosperity and a rising responsibility to maintain this glorious system. This operation has taken longer than was first expected. This is due in part to the remaining abilities of these devious fiends. Their coming destruction spells the final end to a cover-up that has kept us from interacting on the scale we originally wished for. They used this cover-up to create a secret governance, which almost defeated the intentions of Heaven.

This power was initially something we had to secretly overcome in order to carry out Heaven’s sacred decrees. It was a most difficult task since we were unable to use a number of strategies that we had been able to employ in many previous off-world scenarios against the dark. This time was one where most of you did not fully comprehend why we were here and why we had come in such great numbers. Thus, we needed to adopt a number of processes through our liaisons to win over those of the Light who had long opposed the tactics of the dark. These many secret organizations were watched over by your Ascended Masters who mostly resided in the Inner Earth realm of Agartha. The Agarthans frankly used their broad influence to allow us to gain a number of confidences. These were vital in putting us in the position that we are in today. We thank those of the Light who enabled us to come here and set up programs that are currently leading to your grand victory. Shortly, we intend to introduce ourselves to you and then to explain how you are to become fully consciousness.

A process is now occurring to transform how this reality works. Long ago, this age was the property of a very arrogant group of minions who gladly defied the wishes of their former overlords. This earthly group was initially able to recast the action plan of their masters before this plan was turned back only a decade ago. At present, you are watching as the worldwide schemes of this deranged oligarchy are defeated. During this time, the forces of Light maintained the appearance that this realm was not in a transformational period. This camouflage was necessary. It was decided to finish the transition so it permitted many to avoid being too shocked by what was occurring. This can allow many to be gradually informed of the radical transition that is presently sweeping this realm. This new realm is to be completely different from the one that you have previously experienced. Thus, your growing consciousness is to forge the new reality and permit you to live in an age free of the cabal’s oppression and lies.

When the new governance takes over, the old ways are at last to be put to rest. The oligarchy made sure that its true masters, the large banks and the big multi-nationals, were always favored over the people. It maintained laws that annually permitted their cronies to reap greater and greater profits and attack those who wished to free themselves of this highly illegal rule. It constantly invented stories about why this governance was inhibited by stalemate and by large degrees of indebtedness and “phony spending.” The new governance is to cancel this crazy game and free you from these scheming puppeteers. It is to punish these deceiving oligarchs and arrest all who lied, cheated and manipulated you. This new time is also to institute a new financial system, reveal a great number of sequestered inventions and finally terminate the decades-long UFO cover-up. You are then to be truly free, prosperous and well on the glorious path to full consciousness! This is to allow us to land and begin to mentor you.

Namaste! We are your Ascended Masters! Our associates are now in the final stages of a very complex delivery operation. The number of special institutions cooperating with this process has complicated this procedure. We are aware of just how eagerly the last vestiges of the dark are attempting to sabotage this movement of funds across continents and oceans. Despite these and many other difficulties, this operation has so far been able to complete its assigned tasks. In the coming weeks, we expect to be able to finish all of this and to succeed at putting in place new governance. We blessedly thank Heaven and her many helpers who have graciously supported these efforts. We thank each of you, as well. You have kept up a general positiveness, which is greatly aiding this divine effort. We are installing a new enlightened way of doing things, which is to be the framework for your new reality!

This positive effort of yours is to be applauded. The dark and its oligarchic minions have laid down a sea of physical doom across the length and breadth of this globe. Nevertheless, this great ocean of negativity has not seriously impaired your visions or energies. This magnificent operation is a blessed sign of who you really are. Your growing level of consciousness is busily limiting the dark and providing proof for why this new era is to be shortly manifested. Each of you is demonstrating how this growing consciousness is sealing the fate of the dark ones and their minions. A few decades ago this divine effort was judged to be impossible. Now, it is evident and becoming the undercurrent that is leading the Light to a most wondrous triumph! All of this is a truly remarkable set of events.

Your future is to be one in which you are to achieve your glorious goals and return this solar system and galaxy to the Light. The time is approaching for some truly miraculous happenings! These are to permit us to finally appear freely among you. Then, you are to see that all of these grand events are not only to bring you your freedom but also a rediscovery of your true past and your origins in the many worlds that forged our space families. In this new knowledge, you can see why you are here and go about your divine duties. Together, we are to forge a most wondrous new star nation and gladly accept a whole host of new responsibilities. In this is to be your grand transformation and a great rejoicing throughout all of Heaven! You are indeed blessed and being prepared for a most sacred set of duties.

Today, we continued to explain how this present reality is being transformed and readied for a new realm. Our many heavenly and space families are drawing close to their triumphant grand finale. This is to greatly alter this reality. Remain positive and fully ready for the great joys that are now very close to manifesting. Know, dear Ones, that the countless Supply and never-ending Prosperity of Heaven are indeed yours! So Be It! Selamat Gajun! Selamat Ja! (Sirian for Be One! and Be in Joy!)

February 9th, 2016

On Tuesday junk bonds continued to crash, the price of oil briefly dipped below 28 dollars a barrel, Deutsche Bank was forced to deny that it is on the verge of collapse, but the biggest news was what happened in Japan.  The Nikkei was down a staggering 918 points, but that stock crash made very few headlines in the western world.  If the Dow had crashed 918 points today, that would have been the largest single day point crash in all of U.S. history.  So what just happened in Japan is a really big deal.  The Nikkei is now down 23.1 percent from the peak of the market, and that places it solidly in bear market territory.  Overall, a total of 16.5 trillion dollars of global stock market wealth has been wiped out since the middle of 2015.  As I stated yesterday, this is what a global financial crisis looks like.

Just as we saw during the last financial crisis, the big banks are playing a starring role, and this is definitely true in Japan.  Right now, Japanese banking stocks are absolutely imploding, and this is what drove much of the panic last night.  The following numbers come from Wolf Richter

  • Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group plunged 8.7%, down 47%from June 2015.
  • Mizuho Financial Group plunged 6.2%, down 38% since June 2015.
  • Sumitomo Mitsui plunged 6.2%, down 26% since May 2015
  • Nomura plunged a juicy 9.1%, down 42% since June 2015

A lot of analysts have been very focused on the downturn in China in recent months, but I think that it is much more important to watch Japan right now.

I have become fully convinced that the Japanese financial system is going to play a central role in the initial stages of this new global financial meltdown, and so I encourage everyone to keep a close eye on the Nikkei every single night.

Meanwhile, the stock price of German banking giant Deutsche Bank crashed to a record low on Tuesday.  If you will recall, Deutsche Bank reported a loss of 7.6 billion dollars in 2015, and I wrote quite a bit about their ongoing problems yesterday.

Things have gotten so bad that now Deutsche Bank has been forced to come out and publicly deny that they are in trouble

Deutsche Bank co-CEO John Cryan moved to quell fears about the bank’s stability Tuesday with a surprise memo saying its balance sheet “remains absolutely rock-solid.”

The comments come as investors grow increasingly nervous about the health of European banks, which have taken a hit on the fall in energy prices and which face rising concerns over their cash levels.

Of course Lehman Brothers issued the same kind of denials just before they collapsed in 2008.  Cryan’s comments did little to calm the markets, and even Jim Cramer saw right through them…

“You know, Deutsche Bank puts out a note saying, ‘listen, don’t worry, all good.’ Reminds me of JPMorgan saying if you have to say that you’re creditworthy then it’s already too late.”

Another thing that Lehman Brothers did just before they collapsed in 2008 was to lay off workers.  We have seen a number of major banks do this lately, including Deutsche Bank

Cryan, 55, has been seeking to boost capital buffers and profitability by cutting costs andeliminating thousands of jobs as volatile markets undermine revenue and outstanding regulatory probes raise the specter of fresh capital measures to help cover continued legal charges. The cost of protecting Deutsche Bank’s debt against default has more than doubled this year, while the shares have dropped about 42 percent.

The following chart comes from Zero Hedge.  Nobody on the Internet does a better job with charts than Zero Hedge does.  I would recommend visiting them right after you visit The Economic Collapse Blog each day (wink wink).  This chart shows that Deutsche Bank stock has already fallen lower than it was during any point during the last financial crisis…

Deutsche Bank Record Low

Deutsche Bank is the biggest and most important bank in the biggest and most important economy in the EU, and it has exposure to derivatives that is approximately 20 times Germany’s GDP.

If that doesn’t alarm you, I don’t know what will.

The biggest financial bubble in the history of the world has entered a terminal phase, and the parallels to the last financial crisis have become so apparent that just about anyone can see them at this point.  Just consider some of the ominous warnings that we have seen recently

Billionaire Carl Icahn, for example, recently raised a red flag on a national broadcast when he declared, “The public is walking into a trap again as they did in 2007.”

And the prophetic economist Andrew Smithers warns, “U.S. stocks are now about 80% overvalued.”

Smithers backs up his prediction using a ratio which proves that the only time in history stocks were this risky was 1929 and 1999. And we all know what happened next. Stocks fell by 89% and 50%, respectively.

Even the Royal Bank of Scotland says the markets are flashing stress alerts akin to the 2008 crisis. They told their clients to “Sell Everything” because “in a crowded hall, the exit doors are small.”

And let’s not forget that famous billionaire retail magnate Hugo Salinas Price has warned that the global economy “is going into a depression“.

The chaos that we have seen this week is simply a logical progression of the crisis that began during the second half of last year.  If you were to create a checklist of all the things that you would expect to see during the initial stages of a new financial crisis, all of the boxes would be checked.

In the days ahead, keep your eyes on Germany and Japan.

Yes, the Italian banking system is completely collapsing right now, but I believe that what is happening in Germany is going to be the key to the meltdown of Europe, and I am convinced that Deutsche Bank is going to be the star of the show.

Meanwhile, don’t underestimate what is taking place in Japan.

The Japanese still have the third largest economy on the entire planet, and their financial system is essentially a Ponzi scheme built on top of a house of cards that has a rapidly aging population as the foundation.

As Japan falls, that will be a signal that financial Armageddon is now upon us.

And after last night, it appears that moment is a lot closer than a lot of us may have thought.

bugs2What’s one of the first things you do when you enter a hotel room after a long day of traveling? Throw your luggage on the bed and sit down? Or flop down into the bed to rest? According to Jim Dill, Extension Educator at The University of Maine, the bed is the last thing we should be touching when we first walk into a hotel room.

You’ve probably heard of bed bugs — small, blood-sucking parasites that feed on mammals and birds. Adult bedbugs are reddish-brown in color, with flat, oval-shaped bodies that are 4-5 millimeters in length. Bedbugs are attracted to warmth, and they usually feed at night, making a hotel bed the perfect spot for them to settle in. These little creatures can be found almost anywhere, so whether you’re staying at a hotel for the night, moving into an apartment, or renting a beach house for a week, your safest bet is to check the bed right away.

Bed bugs can lay one to five eggs in a day, and  more than 500 eggs in a lifetime. Their hatchlings are so small that they can pass through a stitch hole in a mattress. If you’re officially grossed out at this point, here’s the good news: Jim Dill has put together a video to help us look for and detect bed bugs during our next hotel stay, before we climb underneath the covers. If the possibility of these insects feeding on your blood while you sleep is enough to freak you out, you’ll want to check out the video below:

Financial expert Peter Schiff gives a gold update and says, “The price of gold is going to skyrocket, and it’s going to go up so much more than this because we are just getting started. What is really going to power the rise is not only are we going into a recession in the U.S., but it’s going to be an inflationary recession. When the dollar tanks, because the Fed doesn’t raise rates, then consumer prices are going to take off, and they’re going to rise so rapidly there is going to be no way the government is going to be able to hide them. . . . We are going to start to see inflation rates, annual inflation rates well north of the Fed’s 2% target level. They are not going to do anything to rein in inflation because it’s impossible. Gold is going to sense this. It’s going to smell blood. You’ve got a lot of people who are shorting the gold market. They are going to get crushed.”

On CNBC and his guest appearances, Schiff says, “CNBC used to have me on all the time before the 2008 financial crisis. Even though they thought I was saying all kinds of things they thought were crazy, they had me on just to be balanced. No one knew who I was, and I was saying all these outrageous things, but ever since all the outrageous things came true, they barely have me on—ever. I make their other guests look like fools. I make the announcers look like fools, and that’s the problem. . . .
You would think they would care about their audience, but I think they care more about their advertisers and their other guests that want to shill Wall Street products.”

22-Science-Backed-Evidence-Based-Uses-For-Apple-Cider-Vinegar-That-Will-Change-Your-Life-compressorOnce you venture into the world of apple cider vinegar you won’t turn back. On top of its well known powerful digestive benefits, apple cider vinegar can perform a whole range of miracles from cleaning your entire home to creating beautiful glossy hair!

The benefits of apple cider vinegar are endless! Here are 22 diverse ways to use apple cider vinegar in your home:

1. Supercharge your digestion! Try a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in a small amount of water before meals. The sour taste can help to trigger the release of saliva and digestive juices that break down your food.

2. Lose weight naturally! A study in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition reports that satiety (feeling full) is increased when apple cider vinegar is taken with food. Take one to two tablespoons diluted in water before meals.

3. Clean your home without chemicals! Apple cider vinegar contains acetic acid which is antimicrobial, this means you can cut down on toxic cleaning products in your home.

4. Keep your blood sugar stable! A study involving type 2 diabetic patients found that taking two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar before bed was effective in lowering blood sugar by the next morning. Dilute the vinegar in a glass of water first before drinking.
&nbsp

5. Fight off a sore throat! With its antibacterial properties apple cider vinegarmay help as a gargle to ward off pathogenic bacteria. Dilute one tablespoon in a glass of water and gargle three times daily.

6. Treat acid reflux once and for all! When a weak digestive system struggles to break down food, symptoms such as reflux and heartburn often occur. Apple cider vinegar helps to promote healthy digestion by increasing your digestive juices.

7. Reduce sugar cravings naturally! Steer your taste buds towards sour rather than sweet with apple cider vinegar. Mix one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of chilled water for a tangy, refreshing drink.

8. Say goodbye to fruit flies! Pour a small amount of apple cider vinegar into a jar then seal the opening with cling wrap. Poke pin-sized holes into the cling wrap and leave the jar in the kitchen. Fruit flies will be drawn to the scent of apple cider vinegar then become trapped inside the jar.

9. Be heart smart! Studies have found that polyphenols (such as chlorogenic acid found in apple cider vinegar) may reduce oxidation of low-density lipoproteins (bad cholesterol) and even prevent cardiovascular disease.

10. Treat your feet with a deodorising foot bath! Add a splash of apple cider vinegar to a bucket filled with warm water then soak feet for 10-15 minutes to remove bacteria.

11.Boost your bone broth! Adding apple cider vinegar to your bone broth while it’s bubbling away can help to extract valuable minerals from the bones.

12. Beat fleas! Mix one part water with one part apple cider vinegar then spray onto your pet and rub through their fur – as an added bonus their coat will become silky soft!

13. Avoid toxic chemicals in deodorants! Dab a small amount of apple cider vinegar under each armpit for a natural, refreshing deodorant.

14. Purify your fruits & veggies! To remove contaminants from your fresh produce, add a dash of apple cider vinegar in a sink full of water and allow your produce to soak before rinsing.

15. Get instant silky locks! Add a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar to one cup of water. Rinse the mixture through your hair after shampooing for a beautiful shiny mane.

16.Supercharge your salad dressing! Mix with extra virgin olive oil and dried herbs for a simple, healthy and delicious salad dressing.

17. Give your body a daily detox! Bitter foods and drinks may promote healthy liver function by stimulating enzyme secretion and bile flow. Enjoy the benefits of a daily cleanse by including one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in your diet each day.

18.Keep your pearly whites healthy! Apple cider vinegar can help to ward off cavity-causing bacteria. Add one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar to half a glass of water then swish around your mouth for natural mouthwash. Follow with a rinse of water.

19. Make your skin glow! With its antimicrobial components, apple cider vinegaracts as a natural cleanser. Add a dash of apple cider vinegar to a bowl of water then splash your face to clear away impurities.

20. Preserve your leftovers! Stop avocados, apples and other fruits from going brown by adding  a few drops of apple cider vinegar to the exposed flesh then cover.

21. Create melt-in-your-mouth meals! Impress your dinner guests by adding apple cider vinegar to marinades to help tenderise meat, chicken or fish and create a succulent feast!

22. Soothe sunburn! Add one cup of apple cider vinegar to a lukewarm bath to soothe painful sunburn.

When buying apple cider vinegar, be sure to choose certified organic, raw, unfiltered and unpasteurized as this is the highest quality form that contains the ‘mother’ (yeast and acetic acid bacteria). The more murky it looks the better because this shows it hasn’t been filtered of all its goodness. When taking it orally, start with small doses (as your taste buds adjust) and always mix with water. Be warned, you may become an apple cider addict!

This guest post was written Elisha of My Health Maven. She is deeply passionate about educating people and empowering them to lead healthier lives. I encourage you to check out her blog.

Acidic bodies are unhealthy bodies. When the body is acidic, it creates an unwanted environment where illness, bacteria, and yeast thrive. When the body is overly acidic, the body takes minerals from vital organs and bones to neutralize the acid and remove it from the body. Because of this, the body’s mineral reserves such as calcium, sodium, potassium and magnesium can run dangerously low and cause damage that can go undetected for years, until it reaches unhealthy levels, causing acidosis.

Most of us are already consuming enough acid forming foods, such as dairy, grains, meats and sugar. Since the body is constantly generating acidic waste products from the metabolism, those waste products need to be neutralized or excreted in some way. In order to neutralize the constant acid generation, we need to supply the body with more alkaline foods.

Consider the health problems caused by mild acidosis (poor pH balance):

  • Inflamed sensitive gums, cavities
    •Immune deficiency
    •Sciatica, lumbago, stiff neck
    •Respiratory problems, shortness of breath, coughing
    •Yeast fungal overgrowth
    •Low energy and chronic fatigue
    •Cardiovascular damage, including the constriction of blood vessels and reduction in oxygen
    •Heart problems, arrhythmias, increased heart rate
    •Weight gain, obesity and diabetes
    •Bladder and kidney infections
    •Accelerated free radical damage
    •Premature aging
    •Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea
    •Osteoporosis, weak brittle bones, hip fractures, bone spurs
    •Headaches, confusion, sleepiness
    •Joint pain, aching muscles and lactic acid buildup
    •Allergies, acne

Doesn’t the body adjust pH on its own?

Yes it can, but it does so at a price. The normal pH for all tissues and fluids in the body, except the stomach is alkaline. With the exception of blood, all of the body systems have a wide pH range, in part so they can shift to maintain the blood pH, which must be maintained at the very narrow margin of 7.35 to 7.45.  For example, if the system becomes too acidic, the blood will take alkaline forming elements from the digestive enzyme system of the small intestine. This now creates a less than optimal environment for proper digestion. So while the body can adjust pH on its own, it does so at a price to other systems in the body, which can lead to additional health problems.

Start by knowing your pH

pH testing is important because it allows an individual to get a numeric representation of the current level of acidification in their body. A healthy average pH reading will range anywhere from 6.75 to 7.25. The optimal pH numeric reading is 7.36. To learn more about ph testing check references at end of article.

You can’t tell if food is acidic or alkaline by taste alone

For example, many people think of lemons as acidic, while it is classified as an acidic fruit, it is actually an alkaline forming food. During the process of digestion the acids are oxidized into carbon dioxide and water, therefore they do not create an acid condition in the system.

Calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium and sodium are the main alkalizing minerals. Foods that are high in this minerals are considered alkaline forming food.  Most foods have both acid and alkaline minerals in them. If acidic minerals are greater in concentration than that food is considered acidic and vice versa.

The body has limits

The body has limits for how much it can compensate for acid imbalance. Therefore food intake plays a critical role in maintaining the acid-alkaline balance. Many diseases and general malaise are the result of the body’s attempt to rebalance the internal environment.

Generally speaking, if the diet includes too many acid forming foods, such as high amounts of meats, grains, dairy, sugars, the body becomes more acidic. If you eat too many alkaline producing foods such as greens, fruits, sea vegetables the body can become too alkaline. Balance is key.

How does your body respond to specific foods?

It’s important to realize that the way your body responds to various foods depends on your dominant constitutional type. If your dominant type is oxidative then fruits and vegetables move the body to the more acid side, while proteins make your body more alkaline. If however you are more dominant to the autonomic system (ANS) then proteins cause your body to become more acidic and fruits and vegetables shift the body to a more alkaline environment.

alkaline-chart

How to improve your alkalinity

1. Check your pH regularly

2. Drink plenty of water (alkaline water when possible)

3. Remove acidic foods

4. Replace a traditional lunch with a large green salad.

5. Use lettuce leaves and collard greens as wraps.

6. Try not to consume processed foods

7. Eliminate soda, sugars and coffee. Replace them with herbal tea, herbal coffee and green drinks

8. Replace dairy milks with coconut or almond milk

9. Add green juices or smoothies to your diet

What you eat matters

Improving pH levels may require a little more thought, but you’ll appreciate the rewards of your efforts as you begin to feel more energetic and vibrant and your overall health improves.

There is no question about it, what you eat has a direct impact on your overall health. It was Ann Wigmore, founder of the renowned Hippocrates Health Institute who said, “The food you eat can be either be the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.”

Author Chris Martenson from Peak Prosperity.com joins me to discuss some of the necessary steps every thinking person ought to take in order to survive the global economic crisis. Chris and co-author Adam Taggart have a brand new book called ‘Prosper’ which can help us all do just that. Because as Chris notes, you can’t PRINT your way to prosperity, the Central Banks tried that, and now we stand on the precipice of complete economic failure. And Chris says, “I don’t know how anybody can avoid it at this point…. this has been the best FAKE recovery money can buy.”

In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss the efficacy of capitalism as profits remain high and with no competition on the horizon to put a dent in those high profit margins. They discuss hedge funds and bankers unhappy with the “new Spain” where justice is imposed and also at the “folly for the ages” as a major energy company liquidates itself through financialization gone wrong. In the second half, they look at the peer-to-peer lending Ponzi schemes imploding in China and at #icechallengeputin as Max Keiser takes to ice in a video only available on RT Plugin.
