British Paper: ISIS, Al-Qaeda Call For Donald Trump’s Assassination, Inauguration Day Terror In Washington, D.C.

According to an “exclusive” report published yesterday on the Daily Star (UK) website, jihadist terror groups are urging followers to take out President-elect Donald Trump and Inauguration Day onlookers in Washington D.C. tomorrow. Rachel O’Donoghue reported:

Terrorists living in war-torn zones in the Middle East are calling on believers to target the inauguration ceremony on January 20, which is expected to attract more than a million people…

Al-Qaida – which is active worldwide – said in its propaganda magazine “Inspire” that its followers should use drones containing improvised explosive devices (IEDs) to cause devastation in the “target rich” area.

Another edition of the vile publication states wannabe jihadis should look to attack areas “flooded with individuals, e.g. such as sports events in which tens of thousands attend, election campaigns, festivals and other gatherings [sic]. The important thing is that you target people and not buildings”.

It adds Washington DC is its number one symbolic target.

Fellow Islamic terror group ISIS has also announced its intentions to kill the incoming 70-year-old Republican President.

In an edition of its propaganda magazine “Rumiyeh”, it called on believers to target the inauguration.

It advises that brainwashed jihadis should look to cause carnage at “excellent target” events that attract masses of people by staging a “Nice-style” strike

(Editor’s note: Bold added for emphasis)

Truly disturbing.

The Wall Street Journal quoted Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson this morning as saying:

We know no specific, credible threat directed toward the inauguration…

Earlier this week I blogged about potential threats by jihadists/sympathizers to the event and U.S homeland/interests that I’ve come across in the last couple of weeks.

Head on over to the Daily Star website here to read their full “exclusive” report on this potential terror attack.

47 Chicago-Area Expressway Shootings Year-To-Date

While I was watching the local news at lunchtime today WGN-TV (Chicago Channel 9) reported that the in-bound Eisenhower Expressway (I-290) was closed due to yet another shooting (people in two vehicles firing at each other- one crashed).

Reporter Sarah Jindra remarked during the live broadcast that she thought this latest incident marked the 46th time in 2016 that a Chicago-area expressway was closed due to gunfire- compared to 38 last year- but that she was also awaiting confirmation from the Illinois State Police on these numbers.

A couple of minutes ago, Jindra reported via Twitter that the Illinois State Police said this was in fact the 47th time Chicagoland expressways have been shut down this year due to shootings, and posted the following numbers for comparison:

Expressway Shootings
2012- 9
2013- 6
2014- 19
2015- 37
2016- 47 (through 12/5)

Once again, the trend is not Chicago’s friend here.

DHS Issues Holiday Terrorism Warning

The holidays are fast approaching. So it was only a matter of time before a terrorism warning was issued for the American public. Lee Ferran, Aaron Katersky, Josh Margolin, and Brian Ross reported on the ABC News website Tuesday:

U.S. officials issued a somber warning today that the coming holiday season could mean “opportunities for violent extremists” to strike, especially as terrorist groups are squeezed abroad.

“Though we know of no intelligence that is both specific and credible at this time of a plot by terrorist organizations to attack the homeland, the reality is terrorist-inspired individuals have conducted, or attempted to conduct, attacks in the United States,” reads a bulletin posted online today by the Department of Homeland Security.

The warning says terrorists could attempt to target “public events and places where people congregate.”

The bulletin came days after an ISIS magazine called on the terrorist group’s followers to use vehicles to attack popular outdoor attractions, like a New York parade…

(Editor’s note: Bold added for emphasis)

Personally, I believe a terrorist attack on U.S. soil (or that belonging to our allies) during the upcoming holiday season is a real possibility. Considering how deadly that truck proved to be in Nice, France, this past summer, another assault in this manner would no doubt be considered by the bad guys.

Headed out to “public events and places where people congregate”? Maintaining a high degree of situational awareness (head on a swivel) is probably a good idea.

Former CIA Deputy Director Warns After Nice: ‘I Think It’s Just A Matter Of Time Before We See Attacks Of This Size Here In The United States’

Here’s a worrisome prediction from a former top “spook” about future terror attacks carried out by Muslim extremists. Former CIA deputy director and current CBS News senior security contributor Michael Morell warned viewers on CBS This Morning Friday:

I think things are going to get worse before they get better. As we put more pressure on them in Iraq and Syria, they are going to have a greater incentive to conduct attacks, to inspire attacks because they want to show they’re still relevant. And as we are more successful in Iraq and Syria, all of those thousands and thousands of fighters who went there are going to start coming home. And so you’re going to see more attacks by people who went there, were trained, have military experience, come back home, conduct very serious attacks

I think it’s just a matter of time before we see attacks of this size here in the United States. I have no doubt about that. We’re going to have to adjust to their tactics. The use of a vehicle as a weapon is something that terrorists have talked about for a long time. DHS, FBI put out a report in 2010 warning of this. They’re starting to use it. That’s very difficult to defend against. So, we’re going to have to look at their tactics and respond. We’re going to have to start putting concrete barriers between the flow of vehicles and groups of people.

Chicago’s North Side Hit By Tire Thieves

Squatters. Fake construction zone robberies. Virtual kidnappings.

Criminal antics which one might think are more representative of a “Third World” country that have taken place in Chicagoland recently.

Now add a rash of vehicle tire thefts in a “nicer” area of Chicago (DePaul/Lincoln Park) to the mix. From Chicago’s CBS 2 News Monday:


“Wheels Flying Off Pricey SUVs”
CBS 2 Video

The Chicago Police Department is recommending the use of locking lug nuts to counter the thefts.

Chicago Taxpayers To Be Hit With Property Tax Hike, Garbage Collection Fee?

Chicagoans- think all the recent talk of new/higher fees, fines, and taxes is garbage?

You’re right, in a way.

I just finished reading some material from Chicago Sun-Times City Hall reporter Fran Spielman over on that paper’s website.

Chicago taxpayers had better be prepared for their pocketbooks to take a hit in the coming months.

Spielman talked Sunday afternoon about the City’s need for $754 million in new revenue, and the options submitted by City Council to Mayor Rahm Emanuel to help “generate” it. That included:

• Property tax hike
• Garbage collection fee
• Ride-hailing companies (Uber) surcharge
• Congestion fee
• Bicycle license
• Gas tax hike
• Sales tax hike
• City income tax

Which ones stand a good chance of being put into play by City Hall? Spielman wrote:

Ald. Carrie Austin, outspoken chairman of the City Council’s Budget Committee, put Emanuel on the spot during the mayoral campaign when she called a post-election property tax hike inevitable. But she was right — especially now that a Circuit Court judge has overturned Emanuel’s plan to save two of four city employee pension funds.

The only question is, how much will property taxes be going up?

Emanuel has already offered to raise property taxes by $225 million for the Chicago Public Schools, provided teachers accept the equivalent of a 7 percent pay cut and the state reimburses CPS for “normal” pension costs…

(Editor’s note: Bold added for emphasis)

In a separate Sun-Times piece from last night, Spielman added:

Ald. Pat O’Connor (40th), Emanuel’s City Council floor leader, said it’s no longer an issue of whether Chicago will have a garbage-collection fee. The question is, how much?

“That’s where the real discussion will take place. It will be around the cost, rather than the enablement. We need to see the numbers that show how much we’ll save and how much it would generate,” he said…

(Editor’s note: Bold added for emphasis)

Property tax hike. Check. Garbage collection fee. Check.

Waiting to see what actually transpires. In the mean time, Chicago taxpayers might want to check out those Spielman articles to get a better idea of what might be in store for them shortly.

Chicago-Area Expressway Shootings Jump

I thought there was an uptick in the number of local expressway shootings lately. Frank Main reported on the Chicago Sun-Times website yesterday:

Expressway shootings have become a major problem. They not only threaten the lives of motorists, but they have also caused frequent traffic jams as police shut down the expressways to investigate them.

In 2010, there were six shootings on Chicago-area expressways.

Last year, there were 18.

And so far this year, there have been 25

In the past two years, one person was killed and 23 people were wounded in the shootings, according to the Illinois State Police.

Most of the shootings don’t appear to stem from road rage, said Sgt. Clare Pfotenhauer, a spokeswoman for the state police. Usually, they involve gang conflicts, she said.

A law enforcement source said gang members follow their targets onto the Dan Ryan and Eisenhower expressways because they believe it’s easier to get away from police on the expressways than on neighborhood streets…

(Editor’s note: Bold added for emphasis)

I’ve logged a lot of hours on the Eisenhower over the years. Back in the late nineties, I was heading east on I-290 into the city when I noticed my girlfriend at the time was staring out the front passenger window at other vehicles. Just then what appeared to be a car full of gangbangers pulled up alongside of us. By the look on their faces, they weren’t too happy being stared at by some far west suburban white girl. Nothing came of the incident. However, living off the West Side at this time, I knew better than to stare at other vehicles and their occupants on certain stretches of Chicagoland roadway lest they consider “popping a cap in my ass” (a couple of years earlier while driving on I-43 in downtown Milwaukee I already had a handgun flashed at me), and gladly shared such concerns with this young lady later that day.

Jeremy Grantham Identifies 10 ‘Potential Threats To Our Well-Being’

Jeremy Grantham, the British-born investment strategist and founder/former chairman of Grantham, Mayo, Van Otterloo & Co. (oversees $117 billion in client assets as of June 30, 2015), just released his latest investment letter on the GMO website. Writing about the second quarter of 2015, Grantham, whose individual clients have included current Secretary of State John Kerry and former Vice President Dick Cheney, focused on ten “potential threats to our well-being” (echoing a Morningstar piece I blogged about on July 14). These threats are (in his own words):

1. Pressure on GDP growth in the U.S. and the balance of the developed world: count on 1.5% U.S. growth, not the old 3%
2. The age of plentiful, cheap resources is gone forever
3. Oil
4. Climate problems
5. Global food shortages
6. Income inequality
7. Trying to understand deficiencies in democracy and capitalism
8. Deficiencies in the Fed
9. Investment bubbles in a world that is, this time, interestingly different
10. Limitations of homo sapiens

Grantham talked about each threat in detail. I’ll be focusing on those items I think would interest Survival And Prosperity readers.

Regarding pressure on U.S./developed world GDP growth, Grantham wrote:

Factors potentially slowing long-term growth:
a) Slowing growth rate of the working population
b) Aging of the working population
c) Resource constraints, especially the lack of cheap $20/barrel oil
d) Rising income inequality
e) Disappointing and sub-average capital spending, notably in the U.S.
f) Loss of low-hanging fruit: Facebook is not the new steam engine
g) Steadily increasing climate difficulties
h) Partially dysfunctional government, particularly in economic matters that fail to maximize growth opportunities, especially in the E.U. and the U.S…

On “plentiful, cheap resources” being gone:

All in all I am still very confident, unfortunately, that the old regime of irregularly falling commodity prices is gone forever…

On oil:

Oil has been king and still is. For a while longer… Now, as we are running out of oil that is cheap to recover, the economic system is becoming stressed and growth is slowing…

Grantham added:

The good news is that with slower global growth and more emphasis on energy efficiency and a probability of some carbon tax increases, global oil demand may settle down to around 1% a year for the next 10 to 15 years. At that level of increase in demand, even modest continued increases in recovery rates will keep us in oil even if no new oil is found for the next 15 years.

Beyond 15 years, the resource and environmental news gets better because cheaper electric vehicles and changes in environmental policy will enable steady decreases in oil demand…

On global food shortages, Grantham referred to some recent research. He wrote:

I was completely gruntled by a report last month from the Global Sustainability Institute of Anglia Ruskin University in the U.K. This unit is backed by Lloyds of London, the U.K. Foreign Office, the Institute of Actuaries, and the Development Banks of both Africa and Asia – a grouping with a very serious interest in the topic of food scarcity and societal disruptions to say the least. The team of scientists used system dynamic modeling, which uses feedbacks and delays, to run the business-as-usual world forward 25 years. Without any new and improved responses from us, the results are dismaying: Prices of wheat, corn, soybeans, and rice were all predicted to be at least four times the levels of 2000. (They are currently about double.) The team concluded, “The results show that based on plausible climate trends and a total failure to change course, the global food supply system would face catastrophic losses and an unprecedented epidemic of food riots. In this scenario, global society essentially collapses as food production falls permanently short of consumption.” And you thought my argument on food problems of the last three years was way over the top!

Grantham is still not impressed with the Federal Reserve. He predicted:

And what of the current Fed regime – the Greenspan-Bernanke-Yellen Regime – that promotes higher asset prices and lower borrowing costs, which facilitate stock buybacks amongst other speculative forces? Well, this regime, too, will change. Regression of regime, if ou will. Painfully, politicians, the public, businessmen, and possibly even some economists will recognize the current regime as a failed experiment.

And on the “limitations of homo sapiens”? Grantham observed:

Not only does our species have a strong predisposition to be optimistic (or bullish) – it is probably a useful survival characteristic – but we are particularly good at listening to agreeable data and avoiding unpleasant data that does not jibe with our beliefs or philosophies. Facts, whether backed by 97% of scientists as is the case with man-made climate change, or 99.9% as is the case with evolution, do not count for nearly as much as we used to believe. For that matter, we do a terrible job of planning for the long term, particularly in postponing gratification, and we are wickedly bad at dealing with the implications of compound math. All of this makes it easy for us to forget about the previously painful market busts; facilitates our pushing stocks and markets on occasion to levels that make no mathematical sense; and allows us, regrettably, to ignore the logic of finite resources and a deteriorating climate until the consequences are pushed up our short-term noses.

The take-away from all of the above?

• Grantham forecasts U.S./developed world GDP growth to slow to 1.5 percent
• Investment opportunities may exist in commodities, agriculture, and other things food-related
• The outcome of the Fed’s current monetary policies will be painful
• Human nature- in particular, our unbridled optimism and focus on short-term gratification- will continue to result in asset bubbles and longer-term problems outside of the financial markets/economy/larger financial system
