Moggy, wonderful photo. We relate to that wonderful flower because we had

a night-flowering Cereus for many years.  When we moved from one home, Mrs. Equiz gave the plant to a restaurant for display in their reception area.  Then she easily started a new Cereus from a side shoot that took root very quickly.  Several evenings over the years we had neighbors in to see and smell the evening show.  The best performance was one evening when we had eleven blossoms opening within an hour of each other.  On that evening the floral aroma was almost too much, but a botanical wonder nonetheless.    Cheers.   Equiz

My Night Blooming Cereus has bloomed tonight

Greece to hold July 5 referendum on bailout deal, ministers call on voters to reject it

(AP:ATHENS, Greece) ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Greece’s prime minister on Friday called a surprise referendum for July 5 on the financially troubled country’s fraught bailout talks with international creditors, and government officials are calling on the nation to reject the proposed deal.

Alexis Tsipras announced the referendum in a televised address to the Greek people early Saturday, following an emergency meeting of his cabinet.

“The Greek government has been asked to accept a proposal that places new unbearable burdens on the Greek people,” Tsipras said. “Right now, we bear an historic responsibility concerning … the future of our country. And this responsibility obliges us to answer (bailout creditors’) ultimatum based on the sovereign will of the Greek people.”

The move radically raises the stakes in Greece’s confrontation with bailout creditors, whom Tsipras accused of demanding new pension cuts, sales tax hikes and labor market reforms.

Tsipras said an emergency session of Parliament later Saturday would be called to ratify the decision.

“The question will be acceptance or rejection of (the bailout creditors’) proposal” for a new deal, Tsipras said. His radical left-led government had already said it rejected the latest proposals from representatives of the European Commission, European Central Bank and International Monetary Fund.

Later on Saturday, finance ministers from the 19-member eurozone are due to meet in Brussels for what had been billed as a last attempt to reach a mutually agreed deal. If there is no agreement, Greece will very soon run out of cash, default on its debt mountain and possibly crash out of the Eurozone and adopting a weak national currency of its own — a move widely seen as a financial disaster in a country that depends on imports for most key goods.

Development Minister Panayiotis Lafazanis urged Greeks after the late-night cabinet meeting to vote against the creditors’ proposal.

“The answer of the Greek people will be a resounding no,” he told reporters. “All Greeks will vote no.”

State Minister Nikos Pappas echoed the sentiment. “Our people will vote no, you will see,” he said. “This is a very good night … the Greek people will soon be able to decide” for themselves.

The surprise announcement follows days of frantic negotiations with the EC, ECB and IMF in Brussels.

Everything they’ve done has been a failure and all the current plays be flags or gay marriage is just to distract the sheep from their treasonous acts against this country. Get on flag Cuz it’s racist in same light can use it for their fast track of letting illegals in to undermine US companies and wages and if you complain your racist. So do they care what happens, I doubt it.

Don’t push a bad position!

by Bill Holter

“Don’t push a bad position”! This is good advice in many varied quests. It is good advice in games like chess or poker. Good advice in sports, business, politics, geopolitics and certainly in militarily ventures. Today we will look at two separate issues where “bad positions” are being pushed to the wall!

First, we have an insane situation brewing in COMEX silver. The open interest finally exceeded 200,000 contracts (1 billion ounces). I believe the only other time this much open interest existed was back in 1980 or ’81. This makes no sense whatsoever, the price is again plumbing 4 year lows yet open interest has moved to record highs? The fact open interest has expanded while price has declined is proof positive the “initiation” of this expanded open interest has been by “shorts” but absorbed by “someone” on the other side of the trade. Total global production of silver is only 800 million ounces or thereabouts so COMEX shorts have contracted to deliver 25% more silver than will even be produced globally over the next 12 months. Silver available for COMEX delivery only totals 57 million ounces so they sit on a naked short time bomb of more than 950 million ounces!

If we look at the July silver contract, there are 55,000 contracts still open with only 4 days remaining before first notice day. This is 275 million ounces still open with only 57 million ounces available to deliver. This is truly fraudulent sales of metal because the metal does not exist to deliver. Yes I know, the apologists will say “this always happens and the shorts will decline into first notice day and evaporate throughout the delivery month”. I agree, this “has” always happened in the past but something is changing now. In the past, total open interest always dropped going into FND, now it is not. Not only are all July contracts closed out being rolled into September, the total is rising rather than declining sharply.

“Blood On The Streets” – Bonds Battered, Stocks Slammed As Greece Suddenly “Matters”



Posted by ipso facto @ 13:21 on June 26, 2015  

For a while there the Russians were dropping concrete from helicopters over the Ukraine reactor. They lost a lot of people dealing with the meltdown. Compare their response to that of the Japanese. Just my impression but the Japanese seem to have done little to heal this festering, leaking sore.

Thank you for your replies. It is my understanding that the Russians had closed off further radiation leakage.

“Why are we poking the bear?”

The only answer I can come up with is that certain members of our leadership are certifiably insane. Who else would seek to play nuclear Russian Roulette? Pretty scary thought!

Hi Ipso

Necessity, mother, etc..

The Russians will develop superior weapons in the short term and this will temper matters.

However, if this turns into supremacy, wherein they invent something that we have no answer to, they might just decide to take advantage of it.

And it will have been us that pushed them there.

Imagine high speed mini nukes that could knock out the positioning sensors in a ICBM or other long range nuke, they only have to get within a short range and the spike would kill the electronics.

They could take us out in a couple of hours.

Why are we poking the bear? Please remind me.  Rich

Alex – I just am not sure we have the leaders in the states that have the courage to pursue secession, certainly not here in Idaho. IMO, it will take one of the southern states like Texas or Oklahoma. If they do, they will have my support 100% with whatever I can give.

Ipso – I’d like to see that too, although that is not the Neocon way. I’d really rather have Putin call Obozo to tell him that Russia and China would be backing their currencies with gold on Monday, and that he better ready for some bank shutdowns. 🙂

I like to see us talking with the Russians.

I’d like us to say: “We’ve decided to change our policy from hostility to one of mutual cooperation and respect. We are going to stop trying to surround you with military bases and we’re going to withdraw most of our forces from Europe.”

The Russians are not looking to invade Europe and the Europeans should look to themselves for their own defense anyway.
