Cashin On Supermoons, 9/11, And The Israeli Call-Up

Tyler Durden's picture


There are only a few market prognosticators who can look to the stars for sage advice and not come away being giggled at. Art Cashin, UBS venerable trader-in-chief, notes that this weekend will see the biggest full moon of the year from the perspective of the Earth. This so-called 'Supermoon' will exert 42% more tidal force than normal and given the human body is 70% water, one can only imagine the bipolar impacts that this extra-terrestrial 'pressure' will create on the tiny minds of traders. What is more spooky is the fact that there is an unusual astrological configuration, not seen since 9/11, also occurring this weekend and rather worryingly The Times of Israel is noting the call-up of Emergency Israeli Troops in response to the worsening situation in the Sinai. So our minds will be wondering from an out-of-world experience and at the same time developments in the already unstable Middle East crank up one more notch on the Spinal Tap amplifier of sabre-rattling.


Of Telescopes And Worry Beads - A friend sent along the following note:

Biggest Full Moon of the year due this weekend The moon is set to get a lot bigger this weekend - at least from our perspective on Earth.


And the 'Supermoon' - the nickname for a perigee full moon, closer to the Earth than usual - could cause tides to rise around the world as the moon's close 'fly past' exerts 42% more tidal force.


The moon will appear bigger and brighter - sky-watchers promise this 'supermoon' will be 16% brighter than most when it begins on Saturday at 3.35pm GMT, 11.35am EDT.

A few other folks took note of the new Israeli call-up (see below) and thought it might hint military action over the weekend but a bright full moon is not usually conducive to stealth action. Best to wait for the darkness of a new moon.

On a somewhat related note, a few friends who dabble in mundane astrology claim that this weekend will see an unusual configuration that they claim was last seen when 9/11 took place. We may call Arch Crawford to check on that.

Israel Calls Up “Emergency” Troops - Here are details from the Times of Israel:

The IDF has issued emergency call up orders to six reserve battalions in light of new dangers on the Egyptian and Syrian borders. And the Knesset has given the IDF permission to summon a further 16 reserve battalions if necessary, Israeli media reported on Wednesday.


An IDF spokesperson said intelligence assessments called for the deployment of more soldiers. An army statement highlighted last August’s infiltration from the Sinai north of Eilat in which eight Israelis were killed, and said the subsequent division of that area into two distinct military zones necessitated additional manpower.

The primary motive is the worsening situation in the Sinai:

“This signifies that the IDF regards the Egyptian and Syrian borders as the potential source of a greater threat than in the past,” the former deputy chief of staff, Dan Harel, said on Wednesday night.


“The army needs a better ‘answer’ than in the past to the threat,” he said, citing Egypt’s deteriorating control over the Sinai, marked by an upsurge in Bedouin smuggling of weapons and other goods. He also spoke of the growing threat of terrorism from Sinai, as exemplified by last August’s infiltration.


The Syrian situation was also highly combustible, Harel said, “and it could explode at any moment… and pose a direct challenge to us.”

Actually, the Bedouins have asked the Egyptian government to send troops into the Sinai to control the growing lawlessness in the area. Ironically, the Egyptians are forbidden to do so by the tenets of their peace treaty with Israel.

At any rate, it’s not a healthy development for a not so stable Mid-East.

Just in case you were thinking it: (You know you were).  How great would the moon's gravitational force be on the gold that you are buying and selling? Well, the moon's mass is about 1/100th of the earth's mass. And the distance from the gold being weighted to the moon is about 60 times the distance to the earth's center (240,000 miles vs. 4,000)

Since the force of gravity is proportional to the body's mass, and inversely proportional to the SQUARE of the body's distance from the object, the moon's gravity would generate (1/100) / (60^2) times as much force as earth's gravity on the gold. Thus it is approximately 1/360,000th as strong as earth's gravity.

If you bought $360,000 worth of gold, waited till the moon moved to where it would have the most favorable effect, and then sold the gold, you should gain about 1/360,000th of the amount bought and sold.

...which is one way to make a buck.

If you buy the gold when the moon is exactly overhead, and then sell it when the moon is exactly straight under you, the effect should be doubled, if my calculations are correct.

If you can find someone who doesn't use tare weights, centripetal acceleration and a slightly non-spherical Earth combine to give you 0.5% skim by buying at the equator and selling at the poles.  And yet gold flows from London to Hong Kong...

You could get 1/3 skim by doing the same thing on Saturn.

The moon threatens Israel's right to exist.  To deny that is to deny the holocaust--The holocaust that happened to the Israelies, not the all the other ones that happend throughout history to other people.  We deny the other ones were remotely as bad.  That is okay to do because the TV allows it.

I also like the way an infiltration last AUGUST is given as the reason for calling up reserves. What, the memo on security improvements finally moved through the chain of command to where someone did something about it? Whatever's up it's not what they say it is. My bullshit meter is pegged on the max right now. Of course that could be the residual effects from the BLS report.

Cobra (an associate of Drake and David Wilcock) would agree with you.  He is calling for a massive "World Liberation Day" meditation to coincide with the exact time of this supermoon.  This is supposed to release positive energies which will help the alien resistance to the Illuminati.

Some things he says are too hokey to be true.  Combination of Star Trek and new age woowoo.  But the Drake/Wilcock crew are well organized and there has been a LOT of weird shit going on behind the scenes this year.

Maybe this is some kind of psyops against the Illuminati themselves?  Use their occult beliefs against them?  Something has spooked them.

The Sunday AM hi/low differential is 10.1 feet at Coyote Point in the SF bay (High 8.5' and low -1.6'), that's pretty big, if there was a winter storm during this, it would flood pretty good.  It would also make that particular location, or over at Half Moon Bay, a "must hit" spot for metal detecting (Coyote point was an old waterfront amusement park, and HMB produces silver out the wazoo after big tides/storms).

Israel Calls Up Reserves to Deal with Threats on Borders


by Jerry Gordon


Algemeiner reported that the IDF requested that the Knesset authorize the call up of 22 Reserve Battalions to deal with threats along the Egyptian, Syrian and Lebanese borders. 

There have been more than 50 incidents in the Egyptian Sinai border region provoked by Palestinian and al Qaeda terrorist groups including more than 14 gas pipeline bombings and a cross border attack in August 2011 near Eilat that left eight Israelis dead and more than 33 wounded.  Further, there is increasing tensions between Israel and Egypt given statements by Amr Moussa, a former Foreign Minister and leading candidate in the upcoming Egyptian Presidential elections, disavowing the Israel-Egypt Peace Treaty of the 1979 Camp David Accords. 

On the Syrian border, there is continued unrest given what appears to be a failed Cease Fire Agreement negotiated by former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan between the minority Alawite Baathist regime of embattled President Bashir Assad and armed opposition elements in an attempt to stop the bloodbath that has resulted in upwards of 11,000 deaths.  That may force Israel to strengthen the cease fire line with Syria on the Golan Heights. 

Given intrusions on both the Syrian and Lebanese borders in June 2011 in which more than 20 were killed and hundreds injured, Israel is replacing its electrified fence along the Lebanese border with a concrete barrier.  Israel is currently in the processing of building a security barrier along its southern border with Egypt in the Sinai, which has been breached, recently.

There is a small Multinational Force and Observers (MFO), including a US contingent, positioned in the Sinai established under the 1979 Camp David Accords to monitor the demilitarized area.  Given the rise of terrorist group activities in the Sinai Peninsula and Egyptian statements by political candidates and Muslim Brotherhood leaders for an end to the 1979 Peace Treaty between the two countries there could be a demand for ending the MFO and the remilitarization by the Egyptian Army. 

The Algemeiner report notes the background for the IDF reserve call up:

Instability in Egypt and Syria has led the Israel Defense Forces to call up 6 additional battalions for emergency duty, with 16 others available if needed.

Israel’s Parliament, the Knesset, received a request from the IDF to call up the reservists and granted that request based on a 2008 law known as the Reserve Duty Law.

“IDF reserve forces are a key component in the IDF’s operation strength, during both routine and emergency situations. Following security assessments, a number of battalions were called up for military service for the second time in a three year period,” the IDF said in a statement to The Algemiener.

Maariv and Russia Today first reported on this story.

“Following the August attack along the Sinai border, the area around Route 12 was divided into two distinct military zones, creating the need for additional manpower,” the IDF said.

Israel has walked a delicate line with Egypt as the Arab nation moves towards a Presidential election that has seen more than 10 candidates disqualified. In early April Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that the Sinai – the area controlled by Egypt that shares a border with Israel – is becoming a serious security concern.

As the international community attempts to negotiate an end to the violence in Syria that has led to thousands of deaths, and calls intensify for President Bashar al-Assad to step down from power, Israel has remained relatively quiet about its neighbor to the north. Recently however, Israeli leaders have been more outspoken about their concerns over Syria and their desire to see Assad go.

“We know our place. It’s not for us to give advice,” a spokesman for Israel’s Foreign Ministry said regarding Syria. “We’re not doing anything to make him go. We’re not getting involved or even thinking of any interference.”

Countries with a preponderance of advantages with night-vision light-amplification tech plus high-res thermal IR observation and target designation systems will tend to launch an attack on the darkest of nights.  Not on the brightest of moon-lit nights.  The IDF tends to pre-empt during ideal circumstances, not wait around to be attacked in less than ideal circumstances.

I seriously doubt Syria or Egypt is getting ready to make any meaningful DIRECT attack on Israel, instead they will tap or back an abundant supply of proxies, keen and willing to payback the Israelis.  State to State warfare is most likely not going to occur.

Israel faces increasing chances of low-intensity infiltration and insurgency style attacks, on foot, or with civil vehicles, from multiple regional militias supported by such states, as payback for what's been happening in the region, and who's been driving and lobbying such ideological and military actions, and pandering/lobbying for it to continue. You start shit, or opportunistically stir shit up for years, and murder thousands of people en-masse in Syria, Yemen, Libya, then you'll be paid-back in kind.  So militia attacks from Sinai, Gaza, West bank, Lebanon, Syria, Egypt and idirectly from Iran are likely to develop and escalate as a result.

It is also likely that US puppet regimes that the US-NATO-Israel alliance have established or supported during the past 10 years are also going to be increasingly systematically attacked, destabilised and economic potential attrited.  They will require further 'support' as this occurs, and this process will only end when the US and EU financial, economic and also State ideological system, and many alliances have more-or less ceased to function - just as the equivalent Soviet systems did (at which point Israel will be in very deep shit). 

That is going to take a few years.

Expect Israel to again pretend to be all interested in "peaceful-coexistence", of a "two-state solution", and will try to resurrect interest in the former cynical 'peace-plan' paradigm - but I don't think anyone (who matters) will fall for it again.  This will be a few more decades of intensifying war until Israel is completely wrecked, minus a viable great-power backer, and unable to survive alone, against a regional population that is not interested in peace with them, either.
