Three cheers for The Bernank, destroyer of worlds.

Hip Hip Hurray, x3.

Zero Hedge Operation Falling Knife is underway.

ZH'ers provoked Wall Street to ignore all fundamentals and drive the market as high as it could go with Fed funny money, in spite of ZH's logical arguments against.

The stock market bubble collapse will wipe out all the gains for the last 18 months and then some. S&P sub 666 here we come.

The bigger the bubbles grow, the harder they pop.

Hopefully North Korea won't collapse by the end of year. I'm planning to visit this rogue country this coming summer or maybe next year. If North Korea collapsed, there wouldn't be much to see any more.

Considering the lack of any modern communications for the protesters to coordinate, I think we have a little while longer. Might be worthwhile for Samsung to airdrop a few containers of smart phones and nodes to get things going. I kid you not: They shoot tourists who misbehave. There is no wriggle room to get out if you piss off the NKs in any way. I remember a SK woman on a tour of Mt. Kumgang resort who stepped onto the wrong bit of beach and got her head blown off by the guards.

I am afraid religion is part of the problem, ....


I dont like GOD , I never have.

We must get rid of GOD, ...  Its such an archaic exaggerated power-symbol....

Its like the ultimate perversion of power and corruption and leadership. The super-totalitarian overlord.



Maybe we have to get rid of religion and theism to introduce REAL FREEDOM to humanity.

Stop blindly following leaders, especially GOD.

I hope this day will come in a few centuries...

I'm with you. In NK, Kim is actually looked at as God by many people. When a surgeon went in and restored 1000 people's eyesight, the people actually bowed to the picture of Kim Jong Il for giving them their sight back. National Geographic did a special on this and it was stunning to watch.

All of these dictators have God complexes and most people (I was not) are indoctrinated into some form of religion at an early age. It's part of humanity's need to explain why the sun comes up. Ask Bill O'Really.

And Tyler-whorism goes whorribly wrong--most excellent.

God has nothing to do with this, your point is extremely tangential. The reason these dictators exist is because of global monetary policy, and these protests glogally is just a sign of it unraveling. What you are witnessing is the end of the dollars influence, it is truly sureal to actaully watch the evidence of its demise by these spontaneous revolts over pricing volatility. This isn't about God, this is about the end of faith in global fiat currency.

Watch as imports plummet in this country and exports explode, that will be the end is near (couple months) signal as trillions of dollars come flooding back to the US soil and all our shelves become empty.

I have prayed the same thing, not just for China but for the Middle East, America, and indeed the whole world.  Eris has answered.  This is just the beginning.

The future looks like this:

This year:

-Saudi Arabia falls to the Islamists.  Talking heads blame terrorists for inflation; Ben gets to extend the ponzi a few more months.

-China crash and rebellion.

-Dollar collapse, riots come to America, sheeple start to wake up en masse.

-False flag terror on US soil to sucker us into a Middle East war.

Next year:

-Europe disintigrates.  One less stepping-stone to world government.

-Ron and Rand Paul win GOP primary, survive assassination attempts, are seen as Chosen.

-Obama cracks down, becomes most unpopular president ever.  "Disappearances" start.

-Elites are forced to openly steal the election for Obama.

-I meet a Mayan priest in the shroom dimension, try to steer the world through the eye of the needle towards freedom.  The prophecy aids in the global awakening, with a critical turning point occuring on Dec. 21.


-U.S. Civil war as almost all states rebel.  It is a very one-sided civil war, not a Rothschild's slaughterhouse like the last one.

-A huge wave of pissed-off people sack NY and DC.  This becomes our generation's Woodstock.  Elites and their enablers are hanged for treason. 

-During the revolution, documents are discovered which show that the tinfoilheads were right about everything, including 9/11, aliens and a Satanic plot to destroy America.  Enough to make sure nobody trusts the elites for hundreds of years.


America is reborn as a free country with a gold standard, no legal teder laws and a great respect for the Constitution.  Commerce Clause and all laws based on it (i.e. most of them) are abolished.  Without the worldwide oligarchy holding us back, it is the dawn of a new Renaissance of freedom, prosperity and scientific advancement.

Jesus christ, talk about a ridiculous world these days.  The world looks like it is preparing to go to war with every country on the verge of collapse.... America is about to start feeling it, and its citizens should be preparing.  This worldwide instability will cause oil prices to rise to 150$ then 200$ (as talked about by lindsey williams recently) with oil opening up in the US in texas, montana, alaska, and colorado... Apparently we have a lot of oil, to the tune of 8x more than Saudia Arabia.. 2 Trillion barrels is what he is talking about...


North korea will be an interesting part...

But in the end we need to deal with our bankers at the Federal Reserve...

There are now some kind of protests in almost every major country.  There are reports that showing Bolivia, India, China, North Korea, have all experienced something or other.


It is insane to see such places like N. Korea experiencing protests, just insane.  It is probably the tightest police state in the world at the moment.

 Yes, Kim jong-il's workers paradise is a very scary place to try to dissent in.The reeducation camps/prisons are legendary(if they don't shoot you outright).

  The people their are fed up and angry...as well as the victims of famine.

 The overthrow of the Kim regime would be glorious...but if reunification happened, the south would have a tough time of it.The north is a crater economically...not to mention the education challenges.

My thoughts exactly. Protests in NK are just unheard of. Horrid about any civilian deaths, of course, but at the same time gratifying to read that they are not all totally brainwashed sheep. No facebook, no tweeter, no www - so getting the word out is going to be impossible over there. Shame.
