Tyler Durden's picture

Curious what geopolitical developments traders are looking at? Here is a complete summary, in under 30 seconds, courtesy of the Chairman of the Fermentation committee.

Geo-Political And Other Developments – China and Japan send ships nose to nose as TV helicopters make it look like a World Cup match. Erdogan cancels trip to UN as coup trial resolves in Turkey. Ayatollah orders recall of any Special Forces off-shore as Revolutionary Guard commander flips and says war with Israel is now likely. Rumors circulate that China may, in fact, delay National Congress and leadership change.


IMF announces that the report on Greece will be delayed until after the U.S. election (rumored to be at U.S. request). Tension between Germany and Spain said to be growing.

And now you know.

Long weapons.


After the war, long sticks and stones, cave housing.

So long Blackrock and Haliburton then?  Are we talking global weapons or local weapons and riot gear?

"cave housing."

I have a nice place picked out in the Ellison Bay Bluff.

Spain blows up before the election.

Nothing blows up before the elections. There is more than enough paper you can imagine to last till the elections.

Luckily we can print digital money, otherwise there would be a shortage of trees.

Ben is making use of "cloud" computing for that. Easy access whenever and wherever needed.

Nothing will be more interesting than this particular lame duck session in the Congress.  Nothing.  They are capable of anything.

"Rumors circulate that China may, in fact, delay National Congress and leadership change."

Does anyone believe there is ever real leadership change in China?  At the end of the day it's still more names I cant pronounce.

I think the 'delay Nat'l Congess & leadership change (LOL)' thing pretty much explains the whole current 'We hate Japan!' frenzy. The top guys have decided they like it there & want to stay. To do that with a minimum of complaint from the masses, the masses will require a diversion. Said diversion also nicely takes their minds off the fact China's economy is imploding. They really can't afford bread and circuses for 1.3 billion people, so...

Might also be about time for another Cultural Revolution.

They are even more capable of nothing.

I think the American taxpayers should rise up and demand reparations from Uncle Ben-

Urban Redneck's picture

no, reparations for QE inflicted upon them

"Ben is making use of "cloud" computing for that"

I think you mean cloud printing. Printing that sends the value of commodies to the stratisphere.

They are not using trees for money, they are actually using the emperor's clothes.  Or they were, which explains the utter nakedness.

What will they do for paper money now?  Explains why there ain't much of it floating my way.


RockyRacoon's picture

They will begin to use the skin of commoners since they lost their clothes a long time ago.

The whole thing remains me of Hitchhitkers Guide to the Galaxy, Golgafrincham Ark Fleet, Ship B, they crash land and literally use leaves as currency and to control the inflation their plan is the burn down the forests.


Just feel like it fits here.

Greece was fixed already, right????

TIMBEEER's picture

Yes, two times already.

GetZeeGold's picture



They wouldn't dare ask for a third bailout.


TIMBEEER's picture

That is true, now the Troika is asking for the third bailout and Germany is already debating it. Funny that no one talks with the Greeks anymore ?

Huh?  No AAPL?  He obviously doesn't comingle with Hedgies.

Saw them last week....actually I didn't but I heard about it.



CrimsonAvenger's picture

You didn't miss much. With all the hoopla, I thought they were going to have sparklers or streamers or something.

GetZeeGold's picture



Damn dude....you spoiled the surprise. I was going to check it out later today.

My apologies to the voter with a Kate Middleton poster on the back of their closet door.

See one, you've seen 'em both.

Their is a reason why the Royals are constantly being displayed by the illuminati controlled MSM.

The young couple - with Prince William being the main focal point - will be a massive infleunce on the people of the world when he eventually becomes King...the return of the last king perhaps?

The problem, IMO, is that he wont be the one to usher in the new good jubilee - the opposite in fact...

Probably bring in the NWO and the luciferian doctrine.

One religion, one gender, one money, one nation.

There, they're and their - stop smoking weed and get back to school...

BLOTTO's picture

I never learned anything through the education system at school.

My best education was at breaks and lunch.

In fact, it took me nearly 20 years to de-program what i was taught.

Other then math - its all bulshit and lies.

School is setup to control and condition the masses for slave labour work...

Enjoy your're schooling.

roadhazard's picture

Math is the biggest bullshit of all.

+ 100    

Our modern education system is heavily laden with an indoctrination bias that it takes years for most of us to shake.  

Graduating in the late 80's left me believing everything the government and education system threw at me.  By then the textbooks had already been co-opted, the welfare state was in full swing, and the media was blaring "Yo!MTV Raps", Roseanne, and Murphy Brown among other destructive bullshit. 

Goodbye and good riddance to accepting their ideas!  I'd rather form my own opinions based off of reading a broad spectrum of outlets.

You'll score a better education by smoking weed & surfing your own curriculum via the internet than can by gained in any school.

Oh yeah right I forgot. The looneys say he is the anti-christ.

Whats that got to do with showing the Princess's tits?

BLOTTO's picture

Good q - Lulz...

I think its just to keep them - the Royals - in the world spot light. With any and all news.

This has been going on since before the Queens jubilee celebration...leading into the Olympics...and now going strong with nude Royal pics.

I didnt say i know exactly why on every single Royal story - but their is alterior motives to these stories and the MSM is a big player to show the world these 'Royal' events.

'They' couldve stopped Harry's and Kate's nude pics from showing up if they really wanted.

Im not saying these are all significant events...but they want them in public eye...every single day...and thats what makes it significant - because their is a reason to it.

They've got to go to nudity and gambling. They have more debt than Greece.

It's all bullshit. Women in Europe go topless all the time.
