For those who might be unaware of it, Fukushima has been dumping radioactive waste into the sea since March 11, 2011. We're coming up on the 9-year mark. What's been done about it? Nothing. For 9 years.

Now, in 2020, the Japanese electric company proposes a plan to decommission the facility over the next 44 years. A plan. No action.

When they finally take action, only 44 more years of radioactive waste contaminating the marine food supply!

For @HeshmatAlavi

What I like about you is that you put up with my theories without feeling the need to agree or disagree.

So here's a doozy:

As you know, I believe that Qassem Suleimani was killed in November of 2015.

In the Climate Change section:

“It does not matter who you are, or how smart you are, or what title you have, or how many papers your side has published, if your prediction is wrong then your hypothesis is wrong. Period.”

Some of the speculation is that Deutsche Bank is close to having its Lehman moment.

Nobody wants to be left holding the bag if DB tanks so the Fed is offering loans at 1.55% to keep cash flow going.

What that means is that banks were essentially refusing to lend to each other, so the Fed stepped in and has been dumping 100 billion a week into the market.

Back on September 17 things in the repo market got weird. (and nobody is telling the full story)

That normal 2% shot up to 10%.

The repurchase agreement (repo) market is like a pawn shop for banks. One bank that has a collateral, e.g. T-bills, gets a short-term loan at 2% from another bank that has cash.

Incredible moment YouTubers using hydrogen peroxide, soap and food dye create a 'foam volcano' that erupts in their California backyard

Incredible footage shows Youtubers pulling off what is apparently the world's largest 'elephant's toothpaste' explosion in the back yard of one of their homes
The stunt led to a lava-like foamy blue material spilling out in to their garden

This is an amazing era. Major conflicts are found in total secrecy, with very few civilian casualties.

And FINALLY, the goal of the conflicts in the Middle East is stability.

We can only have stability if everyone adopts an ethos of non-interference.

And that's happening.

I see a great future for the Middle East, and it's coming quickly.

Be strong. Iran will be free.
