PM tells president agreement based on new framework would ‘legitimize Iran’s nuclear program, strengthen Iran’s economy, increase its aggression and terror activities’
Atop one large foothill here deep in the Carolina woods lies a most unlikely site: a castle, replete with a drawbridge, portcullis — and an underground bunker.
The castle is the handiwork of a family aiming to protect itself from an electromagnetic pulse (EMP), which they think could take out electricity grids. So they’re going medieval, training to use crossbows and building a catapult to defend themselves against marauders that might come in a doomsday scenario.
The family is the subject of a new show on the National Geographic Channel called “Doomsday Castle,” which premiers at 10 p.m. ET on Tuesday, Aug. 13. Family members aren’t disclosing their last name or location for fear of curious and/or hostile fans showing up on their castle step.
The father, Brent Sr., is the ringleader and a retired Army officer, and hatched a plan for the castle before Y2K, when people worried a computer glitch would unleash mass havoc beginning Jan. 1, 2000. While on a press trip to visit the family and their castle, LiveScience got a chance to sit down with Brent Sr. and with some of his 10 children, including Brent II, age 41, as well as younger son Michael and daughter Dawn-Marie. (Brent II is often at odds with the rest of his family and prefers to use the suffix “II” instead of “Jr.”)

The vast majority of Americans are going to be absolutely blindsided by what is coming. They don’t understand how our financial system works, they don’t understand how vulnerable it is, and most of them blindly trust that our leaders know exactly what they are doing and that they will be able to fix our problems. As a result, most Americans are simply not prepared for the massive storm that is heading our way. Most American families are living paycheck to paycheck, most of them are not storing up emergency food and supplies, and only a very small percentage of them are buying gold and silver for investment purposes. They seem to have forgotten what happened back in 2008. When the financial markets crashed, millions of Americans lost their jobs. Because most of them were living on the financial edge, millions of them also lost their homes. Unfortunately, most Americans seem convinced that it will not happen again. Right now we seem to be living in a “hope bubble” and people have become very complacent. For a while there, being a “prepper” was very trendy, but now concern about a coming economic crisis seems to have subsided. What a tragic mistake. As I pointed out yesterday, our entire financial system is a giant Ponzi scheme, and there are already signs that our financial markets are about to implode once again. Those that have not made any preparations for what is coming are going to regret it bitterly. The following are 17 signs that most Americans will be wiped out by the coming economic collapse…
The United Nations says Syria needs billions of pounds to deal with the refugee crisis sparked by the 26-month-old war.
The United Nations has issued the largest humanitarian appeal in history for Syria after it is estimated that half of the population will need aid in 2013.
Syria, which is embroiled in civil war, needs $5bn (£3.2bn) this year – overshadowing the $2.2bn sought by the world body for Iraq in 2003.

Economic implosion in Spain driving citizens to ‘dumpster diving’ survival food scavenging
Reblogged from: www.helpwithsurvivalhq.com
(NaturalNews) Make no mistake – the economic situation in a number of European nations is deteriorating rapidly, so much so that basic survival has become an issue for more and more people.
Consider Spain, whose government will have to borrow €207 billion (about $334.6 billion) next year just to survive (widening the country’s debt to more than 90 percent of its annual gross domestic product – the sum of all its revenues), many people are turning to dumpsters and garbage to feed themselves.
