The Largest US Foreign Policy Blunder Since Vietnam Is Complete: Iran Readies Massive Syrian Ground InvasionSubmitted by Tyler Durden on 10/03/2015 - 10:04 "I know there is a major battle upon us and everything needed for this battle will be made available"...
Submitted by Tyler Durden on 10/03/2015 - 11:00 On Monday, a missile from a Saudi-led airstrike struck a Yemeni wedding reception in the village of Al-Wahijah, located near the Red Sea. The explosion resulted in 131 deaths, and the incident is being labeled as one of the deadliest attacks on civilians during the six-month conflict. In total, there have been 7,217 civilian casualties, including 2,355 killed and 4,862 wounded in the six months since the fighting began, according to the United Nations.
Did you know that 11 trillion dollars in global stock market wealth was wiped out during the third quarter of 2015? When I was emailed this figure by a friend, I was stunned for a moment. I knew that things were bad, but were they really this bad? When I first received this information, I had just finished a taping for a television show in which I had boldly declared that 5 trillion dollars of stock market wealth had been wiped out around the world. Unfortunately, the final number has turned out to be much larger than that. Over the past three months, the stock markets of all major global economies have been crashing simultaneously, and 11 trillion dollars of “paper wealth” has now completely vanished. The following comes from Fortune…
Eric King: “Rob, you were a seller of U.S. stocks as they surged to new all-time highs and people were euphoric. You were cutting positions there and you’ve been adding more aggressively into the carnage in these emerging markets, which is why you massively outperform over the long term. But you also know what’s in front of us. You’ve hinted a couple of times to King World News that QE4 is coming. You know the playbook, which is that Western governments have to inflate their way out of their massive debts. How do you position your clients when the Fed initiates QE4? Is there a change you will make when you see them actually start to run the printing presses again?”
Rob Arnott: “Not so much. You want to be well-positioned ahead of when that happens. And what generally happens is that when quantitative easing begins, you get rewarded for a ‘risk-on’ portfolio. ‘Risk on’ doesn’t have to mean U.S. stocks. It can mean emerging market stocks and bonds. It can mean commodities.
"They Just Don't Want A Job" - The Fed's Grotesque "Explanation" Why 94.6 Million Are Out Of The Labor ForceSubmitted by Tyler Durden on 10/02/2015 - 23:27 "The decrease in labor force participation among prime-age individuals has been driven mostly by the share who say they currently don't want a job."
Submitted by Tyler Durden on 10/02/2015 - 21:50 Can you tell truth from lies in mass media? RT’s Miguel Francis-Santiago delves deep to try to understand the intricacies of information war. He meets media experts and puts together the Mosaic of Facts, showing how public opinion is manipulated, not just over the Ukrainian Crisis but throughout the world.
As many wonderful Americans as there are who have snapped out of the trance and are doing fabulous things to awaken and empower others as well as expose the truth of what’s really going on, I’m dumbfounded at the willful abject ignorance, consumerism, apathy and shallow selfishness of the vast majority.
All I need to make my point is the following video. Many of you have no doubt seen some of Mark Dice’s “man on the street” surveys, but this one takes the cake, or should I say bar of chocolate – this time over a 10 oz. bar of silver bullion currently worth $150:
The German government has, as of late, become increasingly nervous. It has been trapped by the U.S. administration; the sanctions against Russia have killed their exports, particularly since Germany’s most important export industry was sent reeling by the recent Volkswagen exhaust scandal. There is, however, not much left for the Germans than to issue an appeal for help – Germany is wedged, and it is the people that suffer.
Reuters recently reported that Germany’s minister for economic affairs, Mr. Sigmar Gabriel “encouraged” the lift of sanctions – essentially, he appealed strongly to the U.S. to cease imposing its sanctions. Those very sanctions by which the nations of Europe must abide were imposed upon them and enforced by the USA, putting huge pressure on the EU to bring EU member-states into line, regardless of local political will or economic consequences.

I wrote the following last night and I guess I was right:
“As an alert to you, tomorrow is the FOMC jobs report. Although we all know that the results are phony, the bankers always use this opportunity to manipulate gold/silver. However judging from the poor regional surveys, the job growth number should be quite subdued.”
Second quarter GDP growth in the US was hot, at 3.9% annualized rate. That wouldn’t have been hot in any prior US recovery, but it is hot here and now because this misbegotten, Fed-engineered recovery has run at a measly annual growth rate of about 2%.
That’s considered “stall speed” in normal times, below which the economy doesn’t have enough lift to keep flying.
So the previously lukewarm is hot today. The most recent adjustments even pulled the GDP estimate for the first quarter into the positive, if barely. All hopes are now riding on the third quarter. But recent data has been lousy, and Wall Street economists have been busy lowering their forecasts into the range of 2% to 3%.
A new set of cables from WikiLeaks, dating back to 2009 and signed by Hillary Clinton, claims the US was aware of Saudi Arabia’s funding of militant and terrorist groups.
A record 94,610,000 Americans were not in the American labor force last month — an increase of 579,000 from August — and the labor force participation rate reached its lowest point in 38 years, with 62.4 percent of the U.S. population either holding a job or actively seeking one.
In other disappointing news, the economy added only 142,000 jobs in September, well below economists’ expectations, but the unemployment rate remained at 5.1 percent, where it was in August.
The number of Americans not in the labor force has continued to rise, partly because of retiring baby-boomers and fewer workers entering the workforce.
When you practice something all the time you eventually get very good at it. The one thing many awakened and vigilant Americans have become good at over the past few years is sniffing out government false flags because they have so much practice at it. You may find that the events surrounding the recent Umpqua Community College shooting in southern Oregon may ring a few familiar false flag bells after you consider what the mainstream media is saying about the shooting. It is at least extremely reasonable to suspect that this is yet another gun control shooting false flag event since it has many of the characteristics of it.
Sounds crazy? Yes, it always does. False flags are supposed to divide people in addition to tricking them. But as I’ve said repeatedly in the past, when considering a suspected false flag event you have to start somewhere. Look for the beneficiaries of course and look for common patterns. I think many of us know the patterns by now and what to look for when suspecting a false flag shooting.
