Full Geopolitical Update In Under 30 Seconds With Art Cashin

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The free press is an 'american' middle class institution that works to satisfy the demand of the 'american' middle class.

The Royals are all in front because the 'american' middle class puts bucks(or whatever) in whenever the royals are mentioned.

In 'american' economics, consumption is all and the consumption trends are set by the 'american' middle class.

TV choppers on the scene to televise the action.......



BULL RUN.....THE FIRST BATTLE.......that is EXACTLY what happened at Bull Run #1 at the beginning of the Civil War. The people of D.C. packed up the kids, a picnic basket, a case of wine and took off to the SW suburb of Bull Run to watch the futile attempt by the South to rebel. It will be fun and quick as the North puts down this rebellion quickly!!!


Oh the folly of those dumb Southerners.....So they went out to watch Bull Run like it was a football match!! 


funny, the union soldiers lapped them numerous times as they retreated back towards D.C. since the soldiers were on foot and the civilians were in carts and buggys.... and low and was not a one and done battle but a long, shitty war.

This has always been the plan as all fiat currencies eventually get to the point where debt builds up and the reset button has to be pushed. How the concept of liberty does will depend upon elections and the formation of a new party if the Rs blow it again as Bush did.

The truth is Xi is suffering from a stroke. It is not clear how severe his illness is - if the condition is not good, the current leaders are in a fixed as choosing of a future leader takes several years. So a report of a delay in National Congress and leadership change is probably possible. Coupled with Bo Xilai mess (otherwise he could be a possible replacement), the current leaders are lost. So they ordered a Watergate Scandal by having their people demonstrate against Japan so that the global eyes are not on Xi JinPing.
