Understanding Rogue Waves


Over the centuries, sailors have told legends of monster waves that would appear out of nowhere in the middle of the open sea. Most scientists dismissed the stories as fabrications and legends. These stories were reported over the centuries by sailors who repeatedly saw these rogue waves of gigantic proportions rise up from nothing far above the surrounding waves in the middle of nowhere. In the 16th century when sailors began to venture past the Pillars of Hercules after Columbus, these stories began to commonly emerge. Many attributed them to the wake of some hidden sea monster. The ships that vanished were said to have been swallowed by these sea monsters they called the Kraken from Greek mythology.

What was missing were any reliable measurements until New Year’s afternoon in 1995. On that day,  there were between ten to twelve-meter high storm waves and a wave of almost 83 feet (26 meters) high under the oil drilling platform named Draupner. This was the very first time one of these rogue waves was actually measured by the sensors on the platform. Since then, what was once dismissed as legend has entered the field of reality.

Hundreds of such monster waves have since been documented and they occur in different forms. For example, the convergence of waves in a nonlinear process can cause single superwaves to result from otherwise ordinary waves. I have found this stunning for scientists have been baffled by these rogue waves when in fact the same exact thing takes place is wave analysis of even the economy.

The Draupner wave was one of those mysterious lone superwaves that appeared to tower over all other waves. They are strikingly different from a tidal wave, which is when energy is passing through the wave until it hits shore. One of these superwaves appear out of nowhere, but they also vanish and disappear without a trace. This is what the scientists have failed to comprehend.

 

Since the Draupner wave discovery, finally, research has been taking place to try to understand these interesting wave formations. Essentially, a normal wave that hits the shoreline is produced by a wave of energy that flows through the water which is the medium. Those are quite distinct whereas a rogue wave is produced by the cycle of several waves that suddenly sync and produce a combined wave which is a singularity. If you look at something floating just off the beach, you will notice it rises and falls with the waves for it is not actually the water which is moving, rather it is the energy passing through the water. It is similar to what would occur if you received an electric shock; your flesh is not moving, it is the electricity passing through your flesh.

Essentially, everything in the universe is subject to cyclical theory. These rogue waves are no different from a market that suddenly erupts, crashes, and in the end, wipes out economies and investors. Politicians then respond with laws and investigations to try to blame the event on some human cause and effect.

Now, look at Bitcoin. The computer pinpointed the high in Bitcoin to the day. It understands these rogue waves, how they form, and how they will quickly vanish. We heard nothing but scenarios of the new age of knowledge and how Bitcoin would become the new reserve currency. So many people lost their shirt because they wanted to believe the hype and they ignored the reality of what takes place in a rogue wave.

Despite Massive Media Effort Justin Trudeau’s Judicial Corruption Scandal Won’t Go Away…


The left-wing media in Canada is doing everything possible to shape, defend and protect Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau from a corruption scandal created by his pressure to stop a criminal case against SNC-Lavalin. {Background Here} and {Update Here}.

The depth of the corruption is evidenced by the level of manipulation deployed by the Canadian state-run media, and yet they are still unable to bury the issue for him.

In the latest development….

OTTAWA (Reuters) – A Canadian cabinet minister, who had quit in protest over the government’s handling of a corruption scandal, said she and others had more to say about the matter, indicating more pain to come for embattled Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Trudeau has been on the defensive since Feb. 7 over allegations that top officials working for him leaned on former Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould last year to ensure that construction company SNC-Lavalin Group Inc avoided a corruption trial.

“There’s much more to the story that should be told,” former Treasury Board President Jane Philpott told Macleans’ magazine in an interview released on Thursday. (link)

The interview with liberal Jane Philpott outlines how the far-left within her party are furious that she dare expose criminal conduct by Justin Trudeau.  The once lauded and praised Ms. Philpott is now the subject of targeted attacks against her simply because she refused to participate in the cover-up.

The interview is very telling [READ HERE] There’s a full transcript of the interview.

Here’s a broadcast interview with reporter Paul Wells of Maclean’s magazine (the journalist who conducted the recent interview of Ms. Philpott).  CBC attempts to water-down the political damage and yet retain the appearance of journalism:

.

Trudeau will not allow Jane Philpott or Jody Wilson-Raybould to give any details on the issues, citing Parliamentary Privilege.  As former cabinet members neither lady are permitted to discuss the internal deliberations that would outline the scandal unless they are allowed to do so by Trudeau.  Obviously the prime minister’s political interests are best served by keeping them silent.  Justin is not going to allow them to talk.

Along with Trudeau’s heavy-handed tactics to silence the former cabinet officials, the liberal party, in majority control of government, have done everything possible to provide cover for Trudeau; including the House of Commons justice committee shutting down its inquiry on Tuesday, saying no more action was needed.

The problem for Trudeau is the pesky truth doesn’t hide easily.  The conservative party in Canada is rightly pointing out that if there is nothing to fear, then Trudeau should allow his former officials to testify as to what specifically happened.

The Canadian media are so far out of the mainstream defending their liberal lightbringer, the end political result might be the exact opposite of their desired intent. Quite simply, the Canadian electorate seem to be seeing right through the media and parliamentary manipulation.

With an election in October; and with Justin refusing to allow sunlight to the entirety of what took place; there’s a growing possibility the lack of fulsome inquiry might just backfire politically.

In an effort to keep hiding from the truth, unbelievably Justin Trudeau is now refusing to speak English. The French speaking Canadian’s are more left-leaning; he needs to keep that base of support in order to avoid even worsening political fallout. So Trudeau is now only speaking French to avoid being spotlighted, in social media video captures, as he attempts to cloud, obfuscate and manipulate his way out of the scandal.

I’ve never seen anything quite like it.  The level of manipulative intent is jaw-dropping.

It really is quite stunning to watch. SEE:

Why Europe is Changing its VISA laws & Calling it Pre-Screening


QUESTION: Hi Mr. Armstrong,

Can you elaborate on the visa to Europe for Americans? The newspaper here say it’s just an electronic registration like ESTA for Europeans who want to travel to the USA and it’s misrepresented as VISA. Where is the fake new this time?

Kind regards,

M

ANSWER: You must apply to even get on the plane and then the “visa” is stamped in your passport upon arrival. You cannot get on the plane without it.

They call it pre-screening, but it is, in reality, a denial of a visa in advance.

ESTA is not a pre-requirement. If you get it, it merely allows fast track.

To require pre-screening in advance rather than an option for fast track means it is a visa by another name.

Financial Collapse – Brexit Is The EU’s Flu But Italexit Is ItsTerminal Cancer

The bad news keeps coming out of the EU concerning Italy . Not only is Italy in recession but Germany and France are teetering there as well. Italy’s sovereign debt crisis and its Non Performing Loan fiasco is going to blow the whole house down. I’d hate to think of all the credit default swaps out there … Hmmm could be like all those ‘bad’ MBS’s that brought the whole house down (figuratively speaking)in 2007/8. Italy’s politics is exacerbating the situation. The politicians might want all the ‘benefits’ of being in the Euro BUT if Italian debt crashes and the ECB can’t foot the bill (i.e. Germany), it’s arriva derci, sayonara and bye bye to the Euro and Italy will Italexit!

Macron Cracks Down on Yellow Vest Protests – Blocks Champs-Elysees Avenue, Replaces Police Chief…


Following a weekend of clashes, violence and stores burned in the city of Paris, French President Emmanuel Macron has replaced the police chief and announced blockades to keep yellow vest protesters away from key tourist destinations.

PARIS (AP) — France’s prime minister announced a ban Monday on yellow vest protests along the Champs-Elysees Avenue in Paris and in two other cities following riots on Saturday that left luxury stores ransacked and charred from arson fires.

Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said the ban will apply for an unspecified period in the neighborhoods that have been “the most impacted” in the cities of Paris, Bordeaux and Toulouse, where repeated destruction has occurred since the yellow vest protest movement began in November.

He also said Paris police chief Michel Delpuech will be replaced this week by prefect Didier Lallement.  Philippe announced the measures following a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron and top security officials that sought to avoid a repeat of Saturday’s violence, in which rioters set life-threatening fires, ransacked luxury stores and attacked police around the Champs-Elysees. Many of those high-end boutiques remained closed on Monday, some of them charred from arson fires set.

He acknowledged “dysfunction” in French police operations on Saturday, rejecting “inappropriate” orders given to security forces to use fewer rubber bullets following a controversy about the numerous injuries they’ve caused at previous protests. (read more)

Paris Riots Take Over the Champs-Elysees


Paris on Saturday saw a second major uprising of Yellow Vest protests. Many are now arguing that the rioting on the Champs-Elysees has been instigated by extreme elements that have infiltrated the movement to further a second French Revolution. Some 20 stores were looted or set on fire as well as one bank. Needless to say, the Yellow Vest movement has now accepted violence as a legitimate tool to achieve their goals. In this regard, the Yellow Vests have indeed crossed the line and moved into a revolutionary posture. They are fed up with the diminishing standard of living in the name of endless socialism that justifies ever increasing taxation.

The government continues to ignore the Yellow Vests and believe they will just fade away. On the other hand, they argue that after 18 weeks of protests, the government still refuses to listen to anything. This refusal to even listen appears to be instilling more and more violence. Macron has no intention of surrendering the dream of the EU and he maintains that he is in charge and these protesters do not represent the whole of France.

India v Pakistan & the 2019/2020 Turning Point


The last time that Indian and Pakistan were at war was back in 1971. Our War Model turned up in 1964 and indeed it marked the beginning of the US Vietnam War. In reality, the separation or the partition of India took place in 1947 based upon religion. The British created two independent dominions, India and Pakistan. India became the Republic of India in 1950, and in 1957 the Dominion of Pakistan became the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. In 1971, the People’s Republic of Bangladesh came into being. On March 25, 1971, there was also the Bangladesh War of Independence against Pakistan. Bangladesh was a Sunni Muslim state as was the case with Pakistan.  The partition involved the division of three provinces — Assam, Bengal, and Punjab — based on separating Hindus from Muslim majorities.

Ironically, here we are at the 72-year mark from 1947 which equals 2019. This is PRECISELY on target for a confrontation. Back in 1971, neither side possessed nuclear weapons as both do today. Indian warplanes began bombing inside Pakistan’s on February 26, which was really the culmination of the most serious confrontation South Asia has seen in a long time.

The origins of India’s air raid can be traced to a suicide bombing on February 14th in the Pulwama district of the state of Jammu & Kashmir that killed 40 Indian policemen. That was by far the deadliest attack and the worst jihadist assault to date. Prime Minister Narendra Modi faces reelection. The Hindu hardliners argue he has been weak and thus the attacks are clearly because of the upcoming elections. Then there are those who believe his attempt to modernize India to bring jobs to his countrymen has also failed. Modi is in a place where personal power depends upon him appearing strong. Unfortunately, this is precisely on target for 2019 after 72 years.

Even the volatility model of the Economic Confidence Model component is 6 years. Where the 8.6-year wave builds into waves of 51.6 years, due to turn in January 2020, the major volatility wave coincides here as well — 72 years from 1947. It was also 1947 when the International Monetary Fund began. It was also 1947 when the Marshall Plan came into force.

Ironically, 2019-2020 is a very formidable turning point both in conflicts and war/civil unre
