Bush-China Noise BIG DISTRACTION From Global ECO-MELTDOWN
-- Re-MEMBER: 'bush' is NOT the UNITED STATES!
No sooner did an avalanche of news stories on unconscionable BushMob
arrogance and intransigence regarding SERIOUS issues of world-wide
ecological deterioration -- along with resultant unanimous WORLD-WIDE
condemnation, alarm and outrage -- receive MAJOR coverage from mass
media outlets abroad and in the U.S., then suddenly, a
situation developed between the BushMob and Beijing.
A U.S. spy plane, according to China intruding on Chinese air space,
involved in a mid-air accident with a Chinese fighter, and landed,
damaged, at an airport in China. Crewmembers had already destroyed
of materials before the plane landed, yet the U.S. says the plane was
And we're supposed to be-LIEVE ANY of this?
Top View has previously reported on information relayed from a highly
credible, reliable source connected with the U.S. State Department, to
the effect that high-ranking NWO/BushMob members/associates including
George Bush, Sr., James Baker III and Dick Cheney have been working
closely and cooperatively with Red China on several fronts, including
conspiring with Beijing to implement massive weather/climate
modification operations over the Pacific Ocean, directly responsible
the severe drought currently devastating the Pacific Northwest. This
other global climate-modification operations using HAARP technology,
being carried out in furtherance of preeminent New World Order/4th
globalist agendas, are said by a NOAA representative to be a major
factor in catastrophic world-wide atmospheric deterioration within as
little as two years. (What's important to keep in mind here is that
HAARP operations THEMSELVES are causing runaway atmospheric
deterioration -- regardless of what particular "effect" or result the
specific HAARP transmissions may also be causing, in terms of weather
control, seismic disturbances, mind control, or other well-known
Above all, in our view, this current brouhaha between the BushMob and
China is a blatant attempt to wrest the eyes of the world AWAY from
MASSIVELY URGENT issues of global ecological catastrophe with a
distractive, red-herring, dog-and-pony show between two of the
most egregious and offensive bunch of global gangsters; who are MAINLY
arm-in-arm and on the same NWO/global governance track, with regard to
shutting down inalienable, God-given human/civil rights, and
raping/exploiting the planet, its (human) inhabitants AND all its
resources, to the absolute bitter end.
Concurrently, we see this cheesy, two-bit jack-off little sideshow --
this supposed "flap" -- as an attempt to convince the world at large
that these two CLOSELY-allied, arch-gangster global powers are NOT on
the same team.
However, other sub-agendas, intended to manipulate national and world
opinion and awareness, are doubtless also at work.
For one thing, its basic Machiavelli to manipulate events so that one
particular group -- in this case, Americans -- is portrayed as under
attack from a "common" "enemy": in this case, Red China. As many
Americans have been critical of the BushMob's recent disastrous moves
ecology issues, economy issues AND other issues, this is an effort to
cause Americans to draw together and "unite" behind the BushMob's
national "leadership" (YUK!).
On this angle, REMEMBER: "bush" and the BushMob are NOT the United
Also, it ALWAYS serves the purposes of the global power elite to
little FEAR into everyone: in this case, fear that the U.S. and China
might start slinging nukes if things get hostile enough.
As well, it's likely there's some intention to show China who's REALLY
the boss in the New World Order, just in case they think otherwise.
Or it could be some kind of 'lover's quarrel" which is of NO concern
anyone on the planet but said gangsters themselves.
THIS "FLAP" IS A BUNCH OF HOT AIR AND BULLS**T! These global gangsters
are in bed together eight days of every week.
I mean, THINK about it.
Are we supposed to believe that with the EXTRAORDINARILY ADVANCED
satellite and imaging technologies now available to the U.S.
they need to fly SPY PLANES in and around dangerously sensitive
military installations, and that these incompetent "spies" are so
FREAKING lame, they crashed into a Chinese fighter plane while
attempting such KEYSTONE KOP KIND OF SHENANIGANS???
WE DON'T THINK SO! And WE DON'T CARE.
DON'T BE DISTRACTED! What's of OVERWHELMING concern to each and every
human being on this planet is about the imminent devastation of the
entire planet's ability to support human and other life forms, due to
snowballing, out-of-control ecological deterioration engendered
PRIMARILY by the insanely greedy, rapacious, exploitative, abusive,
oppressive activities of this planet's biggest and most FOUL
psychopathic arch-criminals and pro-New World Order pollutocrats, as
exemplified by the Bush International Crime Empire.
What's of OVERWHELMING concern is the future of the human race, and
world our CHILDREN will live in.
We need to keep our eyes on the ball.

Wall St. gets hammered
Fear about profit growth sends Dow, Nasdaq plunging to triple-digit
By Staff Writer Catherine Tymkiw
April 3, 2001: 4:33 p.m. ET
NEW YORK (CNNfn) - U.S. stocks got slammed Tuesday after a slew of
earnings warnings brought fears to the forefront about how companies
will perform in a slowing economy.
Another day, another 29-month low on the Nasdaq composite index, which
shed more than 100 points. It has become an almost daily occurrence
the indicator to exceed its previous decline.
Meanwhile, the Dow Jones industrial average plunged nearly 300 points.
All 30 issues on the Dow took a beating, with most falling more than
"People don't want to lose any more money, and selling begets
said Peter Green, market analyst with Gerard Klauer Mattison & Co. "No
one is giving any good guidance and it's a complete selling fest."
Technology stocks were dragged lower by
software maker Ariba, which said it would post a loss instead of a
profit for its fiscal second quarter.
The Nasdaq composite index fell 109.97, or more than 6 percent, to
indicator is now at levels it hasn't seen in more than 29 months, and
has lost two-thirds of its value from its March 10, 2000, high of
But the selling wasn't confined to tech issues, as worries about
spilled into the broader market. Just two weeks ago, the Dow briefly
stepped into bear market territory -- defined as a 20 percent drop
"Whenever companies come out with warnings, it reminds investors about
the perilous nature of the earnings environment at the moment," said
Joseph Battipaglia, chief investment strategist at Gruntal & Co.
The Dow Jones industrial average dropped
292.22, or around 3 percent, to 9,485.71. The blue chip indicator is
down 19 percent from its Jan. 14, 2000 high of 11,722. The Standard &
Poor's 500 shed 39.41 to 1,106.46 and is down 27 percent from its
23, 2000 high of 1,527.
It wasn't just the warnings plaguing sentiment. With the income tax
deadline just 13 days away, some investors also may be feeling the
of having to ante up money for tax
liabilities suffered in the face of last year's significant equity
"People lost money last year and now they have to pay the tax bill --
'They're saying I lost money and now I have to write a check.' They're
not thinking about earnings or warnings," said Vince Farrell, chief
investment officer with Spears Benzak Salomon & Farrell.
Market breadth was negative. On the New York Stock Exchange, decliners
beat advancers 2,362 to 735 as more than 1.36 billion shares were
traded. Losers outpaced winners on the Nasdaq 3,012 to 785 as more
2.55 billion shares changed hands.
In other markets, Treasury securities edged higher. The dollar slipped
against the euro and yen.
Are we near the bottom?
Signs of continued weakness in the day's economic data didn't help the
negativity plaguing the markets. The government's report on factory
orders pointed to further slowing in the manufacturing sector.
"It's starting to feed on itself, which is the anxiety which marks the
bottom," Farrell said.
Still, analysts said much of the bad news has been priced into the
market and investors shouldn't throw in the towel -- it was still
expected that there would be selling as more warnings come to light.
"The bad news is stuff that we know about -- it's Corporate America,
especially on the technology front, letting us know they're not going
make their numbers and we knew that was going to happen," said Art
Hogan, chief market analyst with Jefferies & Co.
The selling comes one day after the tech-heavy Nasdaq dropped to a
29-month low and the Dow didn't fare much better. Analysts said the
recent action signals a shift from rotational moves to money being
out of the markets.
"The quarter is starting off pretty rough," Brett Gallagher, head of
U.S. equities with Julius Baer, told CNNfn's Market Call. "We're
into earnings season and I don't think anyone is expecting anything
But analysts say this is mildly encouraging because it sets the stage
for a near-term bottoming out that could bring some money back in off
Bracing for the warnings
Market participants have been bracing for the worst. The influx of
warnings from companies in all sectors has met those expectations and
fueled the selloff.
Ariba (ARBA: Research, Estimates), a maker of software allowing
companies to buy and sell online, warned late Monday that it will
fiscal second-quarter loss instead of the earnings that were expected.
The company also said it will cut a third of its work force and
terminate its proposed merger with Agile Software (AGIL: Research,
Shares of Ariba fell $2.06 to $4.44 while shares of Agile slid 19
BroadVision (BVSN: Research, Estimates) fell $1.53 to $2.97 after the
e-commerce software maker said its first-quarter revenue will miss
Street expectations and post a loss, compared with the small profit
expected. It also said it plans to cut about 325 jobs, 15 percent of
Other technology stocks also stumbled. IBM (IBM: Research, Estimates)
shed $4.27 to $90.39, Microsoft (MSFT: Research, Estimates) slid $2.44
to $53.38 and Oracle (ORCL: Research, Estimates) fell $2.07 to $13.25.
Xerox (XRX: Research, Estimates) slipped $1.05 to $4.95 after the
maker said it had delayed the filing of its 2000 annual report because
its auditing firm advised that a more thorough review is necessary.
The semiconductor sector, often
viewed as indicative of where the
broader techs are headed, struggled.
The Philadelphia semiconductor index,
or Soxx, slid 12.58, or more than 2
percent, to 490.59.
"We really have priced in a lot of bad news," said Jefferies' Hogan.
"Even if we continue to see a string of (negative) pre-reports, at
point in time, we're going to start to trend higher."
In the chip sector, Applied Materials (AMAT: Research, Estimates)
13 cents to $40.13, while Altera (ALTR: Research, Estimates) slid $1
Singin' the blues
Concern that earnings warnings would not be confined to techs weighed
industrial issues on the Dow.
Caterpillar (CAT: Research, Estimates) fell $2.28 to $42.16, 3M (MMM:
Research, Estimates) shed $2.14 to $99.91, and Honeywell (HON:
Estimates) tumbled $2.23 to $38.25.
Positive earnings surprises were rewarded. Best Buy (BBY: Research,
Estimates) jumped $3.20 to $40 after the electronics retailer said it
earned 89 cents a share in its fiscal fourth quarter, better than Wall
Investors seeking some ray of sunshine
could take some comfort from Salomon
Smith Barney, which upped its equity
weighting to 70 percent from 65 percent
In a research report, Salomon analyst
Tobias Levkovich wrote that much of the
"tech wreck" seems to be in the past, but that anything more than a
near-term rally in the sector is unlikely.
Factory orders edge lower
Although it is not considered a major economic indicator in terms of
what the Federal Reserve may do with its interest rate policy, the
Commerce Department's reading of factory orders fell 0.4 percent in
February, the latest sign that demand for manufactured goods is
Economists surveyed by Briefing.com expected an increase of 0.2
compared with a revised 4.3 percent decline in January.
In global affairs, UBS Warburg director of floor trading Arthur Cashin
told CNNfn's the Money Gang that there was talk on the floor about how
President Bush would deal with the situation in China.
But other market participants dismissed its impact on the markets,
pointing out that U.S. diplomats have now been allowed to visit the
of the Navy spy plane that survived a midair collision with a Chinese
"In the end, it's not going to have much of an effect," said Gruntal's
Battipaglia. "I don't see this as anything more than transitory."
