World Economy as Vulnerable as it was in 2007


by Alfred Adask  


English journalist Ambrose Evans-Pritchard recently authored an article in the
Telegraph entitled "World Economy As Vulnerable To A Financial Crisis As It Was In 2007."  According to that article, the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) recently warned that,



"The world economy is just as vulnerable to a financial crisis as it was in 2007, with the added danger that debt ratios are now far higher and emerging markets have been drawn into the fire as well. 


"Jaime Caruana, head of the BIS, said investors were ignoring the risk of monetary tightening in their voracious hunt for yield.  'Markets . . . have become convinced that monetary conditions will remain easy for a very long time, and may be taking more assurance than central banks wish to give.'" 


In other words, although the central banks' business is to inspire investors' confidence in the markets, it's not the banks' business to inspire too much confidence.  The BIS is warning that the central banks' easy money policies may have inspired an irrational level of confidence that prevents investors from recognizing the real levels of "risk" in their investments.   I.e., there's more risk in the markets than most investors realize and therefore the markets are over-priced.


The danger is that the over-confident investors, convinced that they can't lose, become highly vulnerable to market corrections that, rationally, are inevitable-but in the current "irrational exuberance"-seem virtually impossible.


"Mr. Caruana said the international system is in many ways more fragile than it was in the build-up to the Lehman crisis. Debt ratios in the developed economies have risen by 20 percentage points to 275% of GDP since then. . . . 40% of syndicated loans are to sub-investment grade borrowers, a higher ratio than in 2007, with ever fewer protection covenants for creditors.

"The BIS warned in its annual report that equity markets had become "euphoric". Volatility has dropped to an historic low."


Volatility is a measure of investor confidence.  When volatility is high, prices are uncertain, confidence is low, investors distrust everything and constantly search for, and argue about, "real" value.   There's little consensus as to an investment's current and, especially, long-term value.  


For example, during a period of high volatility, I might say the price of a particular stock should be $23, you might say $20, and someone else might say $18.  The price would fluctuate dramatically as the market tried to "discover" a stable price. 


 When volatility is low, confidence is so high that investors can be described as "complacent".  They don't distrust.  They don't search for more evidence of value.  They simply accept that whatever value is today, will always be and then "relax".  In that complacency, investors become ignorant and therefore vulnerable. 


You, me and the other guy might all agree that the price is $23 and sure to steadily rise to $30-even though the fundamentals suggest that the price must fall to $15.


"The BIS says prolonged monetary stimulus in the US, Europe, and Japan has led to a leakage of liquidity, contaminating the rest of the world."


By "liquidity" they mean "currency".  Thus, our excess printing of fiat currency has "contaminated" the rest of the world.  (Interesting choice of words, no?  We "contaminated" the world with too many fiat dollars.)


Under the guise of Quantitative Easing, the Federal Reserve gave US banks billions of dollars that would presumably be loaned to US businesses, entrepreneurs and consumers.  However, the Fed also set interest rates so low that the banks preferred to lend to foreign markets paying higher rates of interest. 


Result?  World markets have been "contaminated" by easy money flowing from the Fed and other central banks to foreign countries that paid higher interest rates.


In pursuit of higher interest rates ("yields"), some of the Fed's money "leaked" from US banks into foreign countries.  Rather than stimulating the US economy, the Fed's low interest rates pushed American capital overseas and "stimulated" foreign economies including foreign stock markets. 


Like US markets, these foreign economies and markets also became overly dependent upon the easy money flowing from the US, EU and Japanese central banks.  Now that QE is beginning to dry up, so will the "irrational exuberance" that's been driving markets higher.  Thus, the BIS warns of a coming decline in stock market prices that may be global in extent.


"European equities have risen 15% in a year despite near zero growth and a 3% fall in expected earnings.  Overall, it is hard to avoid the sense of a puzzling disconnect between the markets' buoyancy and underlying economic developments [realities]globally."  

Although its language is somewhat convoluted and understated, the BIS is expressly warning that stock markets globally are not merely "overpriced" but are "irrationally overpriced".  By implication, the BIS warns that rationality will inevitably prevail.  When it does, there'll be a significant decline in the prices of equities markets around the world, and that decline could start soon.

OMB! Obama tells the Truth!! Repeatedly!!!

by Alfred Adask

Recently, The Washington Times published "Obama:  Americans don't have time to think about Benghazi, Obamacare".

I'm so used to Obama lying that it hasn't crossed my mind in at least four years to suppose that he might sometimes tell the truth.  So, you can imagine my surprise when I found myself agreeing with eight consecutive statements spoken by the Shah of DC.


According to The Washington Times,


"President Obama told Democratic donors Wednesday night that most Americans don't have time to think about the details of the Benghazi terrorist attack or the problems with Obamacare."


Implication?  Democrats need not fear political repercussions from those incidents in the upcoming November elections.  Since the people "don't have time to think," the politicians can get away with just about anything.   


We might wonder why "people don't have time to think," but I'll save that for another time.  We might also wonder at Obama's cynicism, but I'll also save that one for another time.


For now, I'll merely concentrate on the big story that Obama Told the Truth-and more than once!


". . the president took his usual shots at the Republican Party, suggesting its members are focused on the wrong issues and frequently "obfuscate and they bamboozle and sometimes don't say what's true."


OMG! Some Republican politicians lie!  No kidding?!  Whatta scoop!  This is News!!!


But what about Democrats?  Do you suppose any Democrats lie?  


Could we think of just one Democrat who might lie?


How 'bout Barack Obama?


Does he lie about the unemployment rate, the inflation rate, the economic "recovery," who's responsible for Benghazi and Ukraine, and who's supporting the ISIL rebels in Syria and also Iraq?


I just love listening to Obama (who once criticized his minister, Jeremiah Wright, in Chicago saying, "Your problem is that you won't lie.") criticize other politicians for lying.   Has there been another president in modern times who's more famous for lying than Obama? And yet, here he is, a world champion liar criticizing Republican liars.  (Something about "the pot calling the kettle black," comes to mind.)


And I'm not here to defend Republicans. Obama is right.  Many Republican politicians do lie.  Probably most of 'em.  Maybe all of 'em.  But it's hard to find a politician of any political party who lies as persistently, proudly and as shamelessly as Obama.  


"Furthermore, the president said, Americans cannot be bothered with the GOP's focus on the Benghazi attack and the administration's response to it, or with the rampant problems and constant changes to Mr. Obama's signature health-care reform law.


"Over time, they start thinking, 'you know what, all politicians are the same.'"


Obama is right.


"And most folks don't have the time to sort out all the intricacies of Obamacare or Benghazi, or this or that."


By "intricacies" Obama is referring to the truth (and lies) that are buried in the "details" of the various laws or scandals.  Still, Obama is again telling the truth.  I'm surprised.


"They don't have time for that," he said. "All they know is it's not working for them."


Obama implies that, given Americans' profound ignorance, if blame for government that's "not working for them" can be shifted to the Republicans, the Democrats are golden.  If that perspective is cynical, it's still true.


S.O.B. . . .  Obama is telling the truth. Repeatedly.  Is he on drugs, or what?


"And so people then pull out and they drop out, and they don't work. And that further entrenches those who are protecting an unjust status quo."


Obama neglects to note that he is one of those who protect the "unjust status quo".  Still, technically, Obama again told the truth! 


What are the odds?


I wouldn't have believed it possible. Obama spoke seven consecutive sentences and the told the truth every time. I've never before seen that from Obama. I am shocked, shocked I tell you! (Really.)


Have our national circumstances become so desperate that Obama has been forced to abandon lies and at least tell some truth?


"Mr. Obama added that "'he Republican Party has been taken over by people who just don't believe in government.'"


Obama is referring to "Tea Party" Republicans-who do believe in limited, constitutional government, but don't believe in big government. Which, means that Obama has technically told the truth.  Again.  Maybe not the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth-but some truth and, for Obama, that's impressive.




That's at least eight consecutive truths told by Obama.  I feel like I've stumbled into the Twilight Zone.


But it's also true, that while the Republicans have been seriously influenced by Tea Party types who believe in small, constitutional government, the Democrat party has been taken over by socialists, communists and collectivists who are so dedicated to the idea of big government that they the sneer at the concept of Liberty.


And, although Obama didn't say so, it's also substantially true that America has been taken over by collectivists in both political parties who believe that all that matters is the economy, the currency, corporate profits, a strong police state and the New World Order.


In any case, Obama more-or-less told the truth eight times in a row. 


Somebody call Guinness-I think he set a record.


Solving immigration problems for the North American Union

by Alfred Adask

The Washington Times ("House moves to halt illegal immigration by deploying U.S. forces to Central America") recently reported,


"House Republicans moved to tackle the border crisis at the source Wednesday, proposing to set up repatriation centers in Central American countries to help send back the wave of unaccompanied illegal immigrant children arriving in the U.S."


Why build "repatriation centers" in Central America when already have them, right here in the US?  They're called "embassies".  


If a child from Honduras enters the US illegally, we should deliver that child to the Honduras embassy and let Honduras figure out what to do with their child.  The child is not an American problem.  The child is an Honduran problem.  So let Honduras deal with their children and their problems.


Let Honduras decide whether to keep their child at their embassy or ship him home-but do not allow Honduras to release their child from their embassy into the US without a visa.  If they do, we'll understand that release as an effort by the Honduras government to traffic in child across an international border or even an act of war-and see that the responsible Honduras embassy officials are properly prosecuted in US or international courts.


 If we find 5,000 Honduran children alone and apparently abandoned in the United States, we'll deliver all 5,000 to the nearest Honduras embassies and let Honduras figure out what do with their children.  Again, they can either keep their Honduran kids in their Honduran embassy or pay to have their Honduran kids shipped back to their home country:  Honduras.


Similarly, if children or young men and women enter this country illegally from Mexico, we should simply deliver them to the nearest Mexican embassies and let Mexico figure out what they plan to do with their lost children and/or their illegal aliens. 

Again, the Mexican government would have two options: 


1) Pay to feed, clothe and provide for their Mexican illegals in their Mexican embassies; or


 2) Pay to ship their people back to Mexico.


We keep dealing with the illegal alien problem as if it were America's problem.  It's not.  It's the problem of the nation from which the illegal aliens emigrated.  So why not shift the cost of illegal aliens onto the government of whatever nation that they come from?  You can do that by stuffing the illegals' home embassies with hundreds, even thousands of children and "illegal aliens".  And don't let them out on the American streets unless they acquire a visa or are being transported back to their home country.


What would happen?  Once the embassies of Honduras and Mexico were: 1) filled to over-flowing with their own people who'd entered the US illegally; and  2) their national governments were forced to bear the cost of feeding and clothing their own people in their embassies and of shipping them back to their native country; then 3) those foreign governments might realize that it's cheaper to prevent their own people from leaving their home country to enter the US illegally than it is absorb the cost of housing them in their embassies and then flying them back to their home countries after they've been found in the US and delivered to one of their nation's embassies.


"The [Republican] plan called for an aggressive public relations campaign in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras to discourage families from sending their children on the long journey to America, as well as establishing border security measures not just in the U.S. but in those Central American countries and Mexico.


"These dramatic steps on foreign soil were part of a $1.5 billion plan drawn up by a House GOP task force."


Oooo.  Not just a "public relations campaign," but an "aggressive public relations campaign".  Pretty impressive, hmm?


Actually, how stupid is that proposal?


Well, first, it's lunacy to suppose that we can solve the illegal alien problem with even an "aggressive public relations campaign".   No one is going to talk those who want to come to the US out of trying to do so.


Therefore, I have to presume the Republicans' real goal is to create a program in a foreign country that's funded by US taxpayers but established and operated by special corporate interests close to the Republican Party.  The program won't work, of course, but some corporations will get rich trying to achieve the impossible.


Second, Americans do not need to pay for an "aggressive public relations campaign" in foreign countries.  What we need to pay for is an effective border barrier, right here, between Mexico and the United States.  Instead of urinating our money away in Central America, we should spend it right here to build an effective barrier between Mexico and the US.


Third, whatever is going on in Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras is no concern of the United States-but it might be the concern of the North American Union which is designed to include Canada, the United States, Mexico and perhaps Central America. 


It may be the business of the North American Union to use US dollars to wage a "public relations campaign" in Mexico and Central America because they are all part of the proposed North American Union.  But "aggressive publican relations campaigns" in Mexico and Central American are not the business of government of The United States of America because Mexico and Central America are not part of  The United States of America.  Our rights and legitimate governmental obligations begin and end at our borders.  Maintaining those borders is crucial to maintaining our God-given, unalienable Rights. 


Insofar as the Republican Party seeks to solve the problem of illegal aliens in the US by going to their home country with an "aggressive public relations campaign," the Republican Party leadership implies that its real loyalty is not to The United States of America but to the North American Union and/or the New World Order. 

The House plan for an "aggressive public relations campaign" in foreign countries indicates that Republican Party leadership:


1) has no interest in establishing and maintaining our national borders;


2) is opposed to protecting The United States of America from invasion by illegal aliens;


3) has no more interest in enforcing existing laws than Barack Obama;


4) is dedicated to establishing a North American Union that allows the unfettered immigration of all people in North America into the United States-even though that unlimited immigration and North American Union will mean the destruction of The United States of America as a viable and independent nation; and


 5) is not averse to committing treason against The United States of America in order to establish the North American Union.  


*  Don't suppose that I'm only ragging on the Republicans.  The Democrat Party's leadership is every bit as greedy, self-serving, pro-North American Union, and treasonous.


Leadership of both major political parties has been seized by agents loyal to the North American Union and the New World Order. 


Both party's leadership needs a complete purge.



Layoffs have fallen so much that the number of people seeking unemployment benefits plunged last week to a seasonally adjusted 284,000, a low last achieved in February 2006.


 And after accounting for U.S. population growth, the number of people applying for unemployment aid has reached its lowest point since 1999.

The consensus forecast of economists is that the government will announce next week that employers added 225,000 jobs in July, according to a survey by the data firm FactSet.Not every company is avoiding layoffs.

Just 1.58 million people were laid off in May, according to the Labor Department. That was the third-lowest monthly figure since the government began tracking the data in 2001. Still, while layoffs have fallen 7.5 percent this year, actual hiring has increased just 3 percent. That's a big reason the job market might not seem as healthy as the series of strong monthly net job gains might suggest.


U.S. economic growth this year will likely be at the weakest pace since the Great Recession ended, the International Monetary Fund said, mostly because of a sharp, weather-related contraction in the first quarter.

 But the global lending organization said Wednesday that it still expects growth resumed in the April-June quarter and will remain healthy in the second half of this year and next.


 In its annual report on the U.S. economy, the IMF projects growth will be just 1.7 percent this year, down from a 2 percent estimate in June. That's below last year's 1.9 percent pace and would be the slowest annual rate since the recession ended in June 2009. The IMF's outlook is more pessimistic than that of the Federal Reserve, which expects growth of at least 2.1 percent. But it is in line with most other private economists.


$148 million US metals research institute to open in Detroit; Expected to spur economic growth

The headquarters of a federally funded metals research program that President Barack Obama announced earlier this year is slated to open this fall in Detroit. The $148 million American Lightweight Materials Manufacturing Innovation Institute is expected to help move cutting-edge metals from research into vehicles, planes and ships used commercially and by the U.S. military. Eventually, two dozen people will work at the facility in Detroit's Corktown neighborhood. Mayor Mike Duggan says city residents can get training for high-tech manufacturing jobs expected to open when the metals move into production. The Pentagon is leading the public-private partnership, which officials say will contribute to economic development in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Tennessee and Kentucky over the next five years.


GM issues 6 more safety recalls; total so far this year hits 60, covering almost 30M vehicles

General Motors issued six more recalls on Wednesday, bringing its annual total to 60 recalls covering almost 30 million vehicles. The latest recalls cover almost 718,000 cars and trucks. The largest is for faulty seats in just over 414,000 cars and small SUVs. Other problems include incomplete welds on seat brackets, turn signal failures, power steering failures, loose suspension bolts and faulty roof rack bolts GM is conducting a companywide safety review as it tries to correct a dysfunctional corporate culture in which safety was a low priority. GM's spate of recalls comes after trial lawyers discovered that the company knew about a deadly small-car ignition switch problem for more than a decade, yet failed to recall the cars until this year. The company says 13 people have died in crashes linked to the switches in 2.6 million older small cars, but lawmakers and lawyers say the death toll is closer to 100.


Senate agrees on $11B highway funding measure, but it's House bill that will likely become law

The Senate is moving toward passage of an $11 billion measure to temporarily fix a multibillion-dollar shortfall in federal highway and transit programs. The chamber reached agreement Wednesday that sets up a vote next week on several alternatives. But senators will likely end up simply adopting a measure that passed the GOP-controlled House by a sweeping bipartisan vote last week, which would send it directly to President Barack Obama. The House bill would provide $10.8 billion to keep the federal Highway Trust Fund solvent through May 2015. The fund pays for transportation programs nationwide. The money would come from pension tax changes, customs fees and a fund to repair leaking underground fuel storage tanks. The measure is among the few must-do items before Congress goes on a five-week vacation in August.


More computer crashes!!!

IRS Deputy Associate Chief Counsel Thomas Kane said in transcribed congressional testimony that more IRS officials experienced computer crashes, bringing the total number of crash victims to "less than 20," and also said that the agency does not know if the lost emails are still backed up somewhere.

The new round of computer crash victims includes David Fish, who routinely corresponded with Lois Lerner, as well as Lerner subordinate Andy Megosh, Lerner's technical adviser Justin Lowe, and Cincinnati-based agent Kimberly Kitchens. "You stated at the time that document was produced to Congress, the document, the white paper in Exhibit 3[the June 13 memo], that it was accurate to the best of your knowledge.  Is it still accurate?," a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee investigator asked Kane.

"There is an issue as to whether or not there is a -- that all of the backup recovery tapes were destroyed on the 6-month retention schedule," Kane replied.

"So some of those backup tapes may still exist?," the investigator asked.

"I don't know whether they are or they aren't, but it's an issue that's being looked at," Kane said.


The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is currently claiming that seven different IRS officials experienced computer crashes that erased their emails and made it impossible for the IRS to cooperate with congressional investigations into the IRS targeting matter.

The wave of computer crashes apparently struck both Washington, D.C. - where Lois Lerner oversaw the agency's Exempt Organizations division - and also Cincinnati, Ohio - where agents processed tax-exempt applications.

The Federal Records Act requires IRS employees to save all of their emails pertaining to agency business and to also print those emails out in case they have a computer crash.

IRS commissioner John Koskinen claimed in testimony in March that the IRS employees' emails were saved on servers, but then testified this month that he doesn't know of any "magical way" to get the missing emails back.

The IRS canceled its six-year business relationship with the email-archiving firm Sonasoft in September 2011, weeks after Lerner's computer crash, and also prematurely retired data storage devices at its IT offices in Maryland.

Here are the seven IRS employees who could use a tutorial on hard drive-fixing:

Lois Lerner: Lerner was the Washington-based head of the IRS Exempt Organizations division until her recent resignation. Lerner originally apologized in May 2013 for targeting conservative groups, but later attested to her innocence and repeatedly pleaded the Fifth at House Oversight hearings. The House of Representatives voted in May to hold Lerner in contempt of Congress. New IRS commissioner John Koskinen testified that nobody at the IRS tried to extract any emails from a six-month backup disk after Lerner's computer hard drive allegedly crashed in June 2011. Lerner's hard drive was "recycled." Lerner and her attorney husband Michael Miles live on a $2.4 million property in Bethesda, Maryland.

Nikole Flax, former chief of staff to IRS commissioner Steven Miller: Flax was a busy bureaucrat during her tenure at the IRS, where she worked for Lerner in the exempt organizations division among other roles. Flax made 31 visits to the White House between July 12, 2010 and May 8, 2013, according to White House visitor logs. Flax's visits started in the early days of the IRS targeting program and ended just two days before the IRS scandal broke on May 10, 2013. Flax met twice in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building with Jeanne Lambrew, a top adviser to President Obama who exchanged confidential information on conservative groups with Lerner.

Flax previously worked at the Joint Committee on Taxation as a legislative counsel, but left about six years ago, sources told TheDC. Flax attended Louisiana State University. She is married to Ryan H. Flax, a litigation consultant at the Washington firm A2L Consulting and a former intellectual property lawyer at the major D.C. law firm Dickstein Shapiro. The couple live in Chevy Chase, Maryland. Reached by phone, Ryan Flax declined to comment for this report, telling TheDC that he is "not really a part of this [controversy]."

Michelle Eldridge, IRS national media relations chief: This 23-year IRS veteran was tasked with defending the IRS when it came under scrutiny in 2012 for whistleblower reprisal from its inspector general and from Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley, who Lerner tried to target, and when it was revealed in 2013 that the agency leaked confidential information on conservative groups to the liberal nonprofit ProPublica. Eldridge visited the White House on March 22, 2010, to meet with Vice President Joe Biden's scheduling director Alex Hornbrook.

Our turn is next if we do nothing but look the other way


ON JULY 22ND, 2014 Laurie Roth


Lt. Commander Walter Fiztpatrick has been falsely accused, tried and convicted of 'aggravated perjury' and 'extortion' and is facing years of prison time.

What on earth did he do? How could a man who served his country in the military for nearly 30 years end up this way? Sharon Rondeau, editor and publisher of has been leading the fight to get the truth out about the false accusations and conviction perpetrated against Lt. Commander Walter Fiztpatrick. She has exposed in several articles the Tennessee Corruption and how severe it is. In fact, it was rated third in public corruption by a joint study by Indiana University and the University of Hong Kong.   Recently, I interviewed Rondeau on my show who states from her research:

  • *    Fitzpatrick inadvertently discovered systemic corruption in eastern TN courts
  • *    After no law enforcer or agency would act, he tried to conduct a citizen's arrest of the Monroe County grand jury foreman for over-serving a legal term
  • *    Instead, he himself was ordered arrested and jailed
  • *    Fitzpatrick has been jailed seven times in Monroe County and once in the adjoining county of McMinn, where he now lives, in the course of exposing a thoroughly corrupt system in which juries are manipulated and hand-picked and judges are protected by their colleagues and throughout the law enforcement/prosecutor community 
  • *    Entrenched government corruption has been a way of life in Tennessee
  • *    Last month, a jury convicted Fitzpatrick of "aggravated perjury" and "extortion" for trying to bring a petition containing criminal evidence to the McMinn County grand jury, which Tennessee law allows
  • *    Judge Jon Kerry Blackwood is scheduled to sentence him on August 19, and it could be years in prison

This week I also interviewed Constitutional attorney Van Irion, the attorney representing Commander Fiztpatrick. The bottom line I took away from my interview with him is that Lt. Commander Fiztpatrick was denied his legal, Constitutional right to address a grievance to a grand jury. We all have that right and it is not a crime. The bottom line of his grievance was that the Judge assigned someone, attorney Jeffrey Cunningham (close confidant, associate and even friend) as attorney foreman and didn't choose him from the jury pool of random names. On top of that, Cunningham had acted criminally for staying on for consecutive terms and wielding powerful influence over the grand jurors. This set up from the Judges appointment of a close insider to the Jury foreman position has meant that they can influence who is prosecuted and who is not.   This can redirect law and accountability...even 'set ups for crimes' as they see fit.

Their charges, arrest, harassment and bogus conviction of Fiztpatrick only prove that his corruption charges against them are correct. They have indeed used their influence as Judge and Jury foreman to twist and bend laws to protect their 'good old boy' power, social and political system. They had to get rid of the guy who was exposing the crimes and details of their false system of power set in place, Lt. Commander Walter Fitzpatrick. We must not let this stand.

This case is in ALL of our faces and is only a taste of what may come to us if we dare to stand for what is right in our county or state. There is no doubt that these kinds of internal set ups are peppered through out the country, designed to further breakdown our legal system and fair representation, prosecution and conviction. In talking with Investigative Journalist, Sher Zieve on this case, she thought this was a test case by Obama to see just what the Government could get away with and what the people would do in response.  Could they get away with compromising and setting up Grand Jury Foreman's with sell out Judges or not?   Could Obama and his minions use this kind of insider set up and corruption to set up his enemies and put them away in prison? I think, yes and yes if we all don't rise up and start screaming, starting with this case. Does another innocent man have to go to prison or will you only be concerned when it is you sitting on a hard bed in a square room with no window?

What is the seven year itch? It is often called scabies and is a skin infection caused by mites. The functioning level of your immune system will determine how bad the infection will be. We're told that the immigrants coming across the US southern borders are contaminated with diseases including scabies. Anyone with scabies is contagious and should be avoided. What can be done to prevent or get rid of scabies? Let's find out.



Scabies is caused by a microscopic mite called sarapetes scabiei var hominis (skey-beez scabi var ho-minis). The mites will burrow into the upper layer of skin and lay eggs. This disease is spread by direct skin contact. Some forms of scabies can develop a crust on the skin known as Norwegian scabies. This tends to occur if the patient's immune system is weak. High risk patients for Norwegian scabies are; the elderly, disabled or debilitated. After infection it can take 4 to 6 weeks for symptoms to appear however the person is very contagious. If a person has experienced scabies in the past and re-contracts the disease, the symptoms will occur much faster (1 to 4 days). Scabies is not a condition to be left untreated.



Anyone with scabies will experience intense itching and a pimple-like skin rash. Itching is more intense at night when patients try to sleep. If a patient develops Norwegian scabies they will have thick, crusty scabs which are full of mites and eggs and are extremely contagious. Scabies are spread more easily with the crusted form of the disease because direct skin contact is not required. The personal items such as, bedding, furniture, and clothing can be contaminated and spread the disease. Patients with crusted scabies may not experience the itching and may not realize they have the disease.



The scabies rash is somewhat selective where it appears on the body. In most cases the pimply red rash affects the writs, elbows, armpits, in between fingers, breasts, knees, shoulder blades, genitals, the beltline, and buttocks. The rash can evolve into blisters with scales. Scratching will create sores which often become infected. If an infant or toddler contracts scabies the mites often are found on the head, face, neck, palms and soles of the feet.



Scabies is known the world over and is usually a result of crowded conditions such as in prisons, nursing homes, slums and child care facilities. Scabies is often sexually acquired or in sharing of personal items and bedding from infected friends or family.



Medical doctors will diagnosis scabies based on a physical exam. They will locate the rash and also the presence of tunneling borrows made by the adult female mites. The burrows can be visible on the skin and appear as small raised and crooked lines often having a grayish-white appearance. To identify the mite, a skin sample may be taken to examine mites, eggs and their fecal matter under a microscope. We're told that if there are no mites, eggs re fecal matter can be seen that the patient is still contagious. Medical science reports that fewer than 20 mites are present on a person with scabies. However, if crusted scabies is involved there could be thousands of mites. These mites have a lifespan of 1 to 2 months when on a host. When not on a host they die within 72 hours. Mites are heat sensitive and cannot survive high temperatures of 122 degrees for longer than ten minutes.




Scientific medicine will treat scabies with scabicides to kill the mites and sometimes will also kill the eggs. There are no OTC treatments and patients must obtain a prescription for the drug. If one person in the house has scabies it is recommended that all members of the household be treated. All bedding, clothing, shoes and furniture must be cleaned and treated. If itching occurs 2 to 4 weeks after the application, then the treatment must be repeated. Prescriptions for humans may not be used on pets and likewise scabies treatments for pets and agriculture are not to be use on humans.



Some patients are misdiagnosed with scabies when in fact they have something else or a drug can offer side effects that mimic scabies. Drugs that can cause itchy skin and rash are; antibiotics, antifungal drugs, and narcotic pain relievers. Therefore, if you think you have scabies make sure your physician confirms it via a skin sample (scraping).



There are some unanswered questions about skin conditions which produce itching and rashes but are not scabies or lice. One has to ask if Morgellons is a form of scabies and is it an invented laboratory form? There are lots of people all over the world reporting strange symptoms of itchy skin and rashes that are not scabies. In one report there was a condition called Collembola, which produces an unexplained rash and itch not associated with allergic reactions. It is assumed it is a skin parasite. Skin parasites are most often misdiagnosed. Apparently there are three main types of skin parasites which can give symptoms such as; sensations of the skin crawling, something biting you and an itch. Most dermatologists don't know what it is and say there is nothing physically wrong and think it is a mental condition.



If you contract collembola you may experience; fatigue, memory loss, difficulty concentrating, mood swings, depression, swollen joints, body pain, fibromyalgia, vision problems, autoimmune disease, hair loss, lesions, inflammation, skin nodules, itchy skin, sensation of skin crawling, biting sensations, sores that are difficult to heal, sleep problems, and excessive dust or lint in your dwelling believed to be from the molting parasites. It appears that the condition called collembola is from the springtail parasite, which is different from the scabies mite. The springtail likes to jump when it moves around underneath the skin and can cover more ground. In comparison, scabies move 2.5 cm per minute. Some believe that the springtail parasite produces fibers and could be part of the Moregellons issue. A European researcher stated that springtale parasites are found in a third of bottled water especially in France. How can you tell if you've been infected with this skin parasite? They can be detected using a 30x, lighted, handheld microscope.



Some folks are making the comparisons between scabies to morgellons disease. The folks that thought they had the scabies condition and it was ruled out by their doctors often find they are left with the condition called morgellons. It is also noted that both conditions report patients seeing what look like mites and bugs, and have many of the same physical sensations. Interestingly the folks with Morgellons also become infested with parasites/insects. This was in addition to getting lesions and seeing a lot of weird stuff; strange fibers growing out of their skin, hard black specks, or bizarre pieces of glass like splinters protruding from their epidermis. 



What did our ancestors do to combat scabies? There are a few herbs that work as an anthelmintic (ant-hel-min-tic) to kill the parasite. Usually herbs have potent oils that can penetrate the skin and attack the mite. I like to use Thyme. Our ancient ancestors used thyme for bed bugs and lice also. If you do not have thyme oil you can use thyme tincture and add it to olive and apply to the skin. You can also take a dose of thyme tincture internally. For the itch you can apply poke root using a tincture mixed with olive oil or make a poultice (paste).  I also add immune boosting herbs internally; garlic, Echinacea, astragalis and ginseng.  I would have some immune herbs and Thyme tincture on hand at all times. The tinctures have a ten-year shelf life. Call Apothecary Herbs for their immune system formulas and the Thyme Tincture. You will find poke in the Blood Cleanse tincture. You can mix them with olive oil and apply topically.  The immune boosters you would take internally.
