1…………> Fighting Tigers Saving Lives: West Pacific
Crewmembers assigned to the “Fighting Tigers” of Patrol Squadron Eight (VP-8) rescued three fishermen Feb. 20, whose 19-foot vessel was adrift in the South Pacific for eight days, carrying food and water, but no safety equipment or radios on a fishing expedition near Chuuk Lagoon in the Federated States of Micronesia.
Navy’s newest maritime patrol aircraft, the P-8A Poseidon, which is equipped with an advanced APY-10 multifunction radar and MX-20 camera system, located the ship in distress after only three hours and the aircrew deployed a UNI-PAC II Search and Rescue (SAR) kit, that include medical supplies, food, water, communications and signaling equipment.
Three “Hip, Hip, Hooray” for the lucky fishermen, and their brave Navy brothers.
2…………> Coward In Uniform: Florida Shooting
A school resource deputy named Deputy Scot Peterson who was on patrol at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, resigned after video surveillance showed he never entered the school, waiting four minutes even though he knew there was a shooting taking place, authorities said.
Sheriff Scott Israel during a press conference Thursday said video showed Peterson arriving at the west side of the building where the shooting took place. Peterson, Israel said, took up a position but “never went in.”
3…………> Our Chinese Partners: US Opioid Crisis
“I go to bed thinking about those 1,400 people we lost in 2016 every night,” Van Ingram’s voice cracks as he describes the toll opioid drug abuse has exacted on his home state of Kentucky.
“I think about it every day when I get up. It’s somebody’s son, somebody’s daughter, somebody’s mother, somebody’s father, somebody’s sister, somebody’s friend. The human toll is just unimaginable.”
Million of packages enter the US from abroad through the postal service, and even though state and federal governments try to crack down on legally prescribed opioid medication, addicts and dealers are using the dark web and the US mail as a new way to acquire increasingly potent – and deadly – drugs, like fentanyl. In fact, medical professionals reported the small town down in Appalachia with about 10,000 inhabitants, recorded a shipment of 1,000,000 opioid pills.
“If you overexpose a society or culture to cheap, plentiful food, you’ll have an obesity epidemic,” Ingram says. “If you overexpose a culture to opioids, you’re going to have an opioid epidemic. And it wasn’t just Kentucky that got overexposed. We just got overexposed first.”
4…………> Pedophiles Deported: DOJ
The Department of Justice today filed denaturalization lawsuits against five individuals who, according to the Department’s complaints, unlawfully procured their United States citizenship by concealing their sexual abuse of minor victims during the naturalization process.
The civil complaints were filed in federal court in the Eastern District of California, the District of Maryland, the Middle District of North Carolina, and the Southern District of Texas (two cases), against Ricardo De Leon of Mexico, Christian Oribello Eguilosof of the Philippines, Carlos Noe Gallegos of Mexico, Alwin Farouk Gariba of Guyana, and Moises Javier Lopez of Colombia.
“Those who wish to become American citizens ought to respect our laws and seek citizenship lawfully and honestly,” said Attorney General Jeff Sessions. “Anyone who lies, misleads, or omits critical information in an attempt to evade the requirements for naturalization undermines the credibility of our nation’s generous lawful immigration system. This Justice Department will continue to seek out fraudsters and bring them to justice by obtaining orders revoking their naturalized citizenship.”

Stock market old timers have said that “you buy the rumor, and sell the news”, and that is exactly what is happening right now, with Democrats screaming murder as a close look at the new FISA memos that are suggesting an incredible Constitutional crisis brewing, a crisis that may reach the very leaders of the “opposition party”. DIA resistance is in the 27,000 area, with supports at 24135, 21354 and 18900 level, US dollar in a downtrend, resistance at 1.003319 CHF, support at .92 and 0.9: Gold in an uptrend, watch break resistance of 1377 to be taken soon. The massive Fed balance sheet contraction will result in a $600 billion dollars being dumped on the credit markets each quarter, a leftover of the horrendous $4.3 trillion money printing of Obama’s septic tank that will surely exert a severe pressure on stocks and financial assets.
We warned long ago that an organized attempt to remove President Trump from office is underway, and if this activity is not curtailed soon, the market will open on gap below 20,000 with next stop 17300 and 11800 support levels.
Stocks were up 165 to 24,962, DJ futures at +63
Gold up to 1330.5 and USD/CHF down to 0.9329 due to intervention crosscurrents. Translation? As the dollar goes down, we have to wait and see if the new Fed Chair Jerome Powell will continue pressuring gold and the Eurasian block with it down below $1000/oz in an economic WW3. Watch sell stop at 24,850. We have to wait and see if new Fed chair Powell will attempt to destroy Eurasian block by sending gold prices below 1000, despite the fact both Russia and China have been buying their whole gold production in local gold backed currency instead of money printing machines. In other words, US has lost controls of the precious metals complex, and with Trump’s infrastructure and tax cut campaign the National debt will soon be at, or over 30 trillion dollars, since D.C. swamp alligators have no intention dropping their pet projects. Read “Ziban Must Die” for more details on the coming collision of Trump’s administration with “Deep State” operators funded by the billionaires’ supporters of the New World Disorder.
