Nanex: Investors Need To Realize The Machines Have Taken Over
“It will come as no surprise to any ZeroHedge readers but High Frequency Trading (HFT) deeply concerns Erik Hunsader, founder of Nanex. He worries that today’s investors, our regulators, — heck, even the HFT algorithms themselves — don’t fully understand the risks market prices face in the brave new era of bot-dominated trading. For instance, Hunsader estimates that HFT algorithms are responsible for 70%(!) of all completed transactions on our exchanges, and for 99.9%(!!!) of all exchange quotes.”

“Last October, though, we fell back into recession again. Official GDP numbers confirm that, since then, the British economy kept shrinking at least until June this year. So this country has endured not only the first “double-dip” recession since the 1970s, but also the longest on record.”
Over 6,000 Cops Will Protect Merkel On Her 6 Hour Visit To Athens
“She comes to save the corrupt, disgraced and servile political system,” said Alexis Tsipras, who leads the opposition Syriza alliance. “We will give her the welcome she deserves.”…”We don’t want her here,” said Yannis Georgiou, 72, who has seen his pension cut by one third. “We will take to the streets against austerity and against the government. Maybe Merkel will hear something and see what we’re going through.” Finally, with virtually the entire police force tasked with defending Merkel from the residents of her Southeastern European colony, it means that virtually every other place of interest will be left unguarded. Hopefully, nobody in Greece has seen Die Hard with a Vengeance and has access to dump trucks.”
The crooks don’t need access to dump trucks to haul off huge chunks of Greek property, they just need access to a pen ?
Greek crisis is ‘like the Weimar Republic’

MUST LISTEN INTERVIEW: Robert Wenzel Says Gold and Silver ‘Could save civilization’
“Wenzel notes that the scale of the US government’s debts and off-balance sheet liabilities exceeds anything that is realistically amenable to a political solution. He pays particular attention to the social security trust fund, which as of 2010 has been running a cash flow deficit for the first time ever. This means the fund is making more payments to retirees ($49 billion in 2010 and $45bn last year) than it is taking in in tax revenue.”
“Though these sums are a drop in the ocean at the moment in comparison with total US government borrowing — $1.3 trillion in fiscal year 2012 — Wenzel says that this will develop into a serious problem, likely by 2017, as even more baby boomer retirees finally start looking to social security for assistance. At this point the Federal Reserve will likely be forced into even more money printing to help fund the social security deficit, leading to skyrocketing inflation and interest rates.”
“As far as inflation is concerned, Wenzel comments on the importance of growth in excess reserves held at the Fed. Most of the money created by the Fed during QE1 and QE2 — close to $1.5tn — is merely sitting in excess reserves. But if economic statistics show signs of improvement, the banks will start to lend these reserves out — which could then lead to a dramatic surge in inflation, as the money multiplier effect kicks in.”

Spain Police Beating Everyone: A Warning To America … and to the world
“Spain’s police state has spiraled out of control as riot police are now running throughout the streets beating everyone in sight, men and woman, young and old.”
I’ll repeat that in a larger font – beating everyone in sight, men and woman, young and old.
“As we have seen with the Occupy movement even nonviolent mass protests have been met with the authoritarian fist of the Oligarchy’s army of mercenaries so we can be rest assured when those numbers swell into the millions, as they have in Spain and several other European nations, the response the police state will be just as brutal.”
“Brace yourself America as our streets may soon resemble those in Spain where a rampantly brutal and out control police is acting swiftly to crush any popular resistance to Global cabal.”
That’s a BIG, BIG, BIG crowd.
At 3m into the video a guy is pushed by a police officer towards where the top of a flight of stairs starts down and he could easily have gone tumbling down that flight of stairs to serious injury or perhaps death.

These Spanish riot police are the only ones who are actually doing the rioting and doing against nonviolent Spanish men and nonviolent Spanish women.
Can you believe what you are watching ?
The Spanish government has lost all legitimacy. FULL STOP.
Are we seeing what is really happening in Spain on the corporate media ?
The Spanish people must have relief from this crap, it’s a simple as that.
If I was to visit the local constituency office of my Westminster MP and tried to show the staff there this video would the riot police be called out on me to dispense a similar beating ?
Why Spain Is A Riot … but the BBC is claiming that for every protestor many didn’t turn out
“It took Rajoy exactly ten days since formally being appointed prime minister by the Spanish parliament to begin to betray each and every single one of those promises.”
“While we have been covering Rajoy’s sinking rate of approval and the questioning of his democratic legitimacy, perhaps it would be best to illustrate how one of his government’s flip-flop policies have resulted in the country taking a deeper dive into economic abyss and fueling social outrage: the fiscal devaluation that never happened.”
“During his political campaign, Rajoy promised not to raise taxes, but to actually lower them (while in the opposition he criticized Zapatero, quite rightly, that raising taxes in the midst of an economic recession was irresponsible). A few months after imposing a severe income tax hike across the board, Rajoy’s government announced an increase in the national Value Added Tax (VAT) that would raise such a levy to as much as 21 percent in most goods and services (there are reduced rates for certain types of products and services, but those have also suffered increases). The government would later follow up such a tax increase with a lowering of social security charges for employers. All in all, given the impossibility of executing a policy of currency devaluation, a fiscal devaluation would make the country more competitive in foreign markets and boost exports.”
“The increased VAT measure is hitting domestic consumption – already suffering from the previous hikes and wage cuts. However, the lowering of social security charges for employers is nowhere to be found. In line with Rajoy’s government’s language, everything is either temporary (tax increases), or soon to come (tax cuts and major reforms). The reality is, however, that the fiscal devaluation that never happened has exacerbated the economy’s downturn: higher taxes have led to higher inflation and lower domestic consumption, which in turn has led to an increasingly stalled economy and higher unemployment.”
“If, besides an incoherent economic policy, we take into account Rajoy’s poor handling of the ‘banking sector reform’ (an euphemism for a bailout of insolvent banks), his incomprehensible maneuvering around an imminent European sovereign bailout, and the separatist calls coming out of the Basque and Catalonia regions, in less than ten months the Spanish premier may have inflicted more harm to the country than his Socialist predecessor did during his 7-year mandate.”
Government is never the solution, it is always the root of the problem.
“In the case of Spain, the most damaging effect the euro-bubble has caused, however, is that it has helped to mask many of country’s structural problems and has made it possible for a cancerous political class to spread and infect virtually all areas of society. Spaniards, however, are wise and seem to have arrived at the correct diagnosis as to why their country is failing.”
“To the surprise of many, Judge Pedraz took his legal argument one step further and framed his decision in the context of the current “decay of the so-called political class.””
A hero but when I looked on the BBC news website it hasn’t mentioned Judge Pedraz’s action – http://www.bbc.co.uk/search/news/?q=Judge%20Pedraz
“Spaniards are now rejecting the cynical notion that the current confiscatory policies that aim to bailout an insolvent system managed by morally-insolvent politicians is anything but “austerity,” and that a petulant government which systematically does the opposite to what it says does not have a place in a free and democratic society.”
California Wakes Up To Another Record High Gas Price
“Gas prices rose 5c on average over the weekend alone to an all-time record high price of $4.668 (for Regular) – up 86c (or 22%) in a year and 12% in a week.”
Anyone who says there is price inflation is a ‘conspiracy theorist’.
That was me being sarcastic again.

“2010: Every 1 cent increase in gasoline decreases U.S. consumer disposable income by about $600 million per year. The move in oil in the past week alone has almost entirely wiped out the most recent stimulus.”
Do you see how that works ?
Stimulus spent = cost increase of crude oil.
The net effect is ZERO but the debt for the stimulus still needs servicing and the debt itself will be paid off by America’s children and grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Turkey Plays Lee Harvey for NATO Plotters
“Muharrem Ä°nce of the CHP opposition party said: “This motion has no limits. You can wage a world war with [it].””
“The resolution begins with these words: “The negative impact of the ongoing crisis in Syria on our national security, as well as on regional stability and security, is increasingly being seen.” Never mind that the negative impact was brought on by Turkey’s role as a supplier and conduit for foreign fighters now ravaging the two major cities of Syria.”
“The parliament also ignored the fact that the Turkish people they allegedly represent are overwhelmingly opposed to any action in Syria. Only 18 percent of the Turks polled support current policy in Syria according to a recent poll. It is fair to assume that fewer still would favor an outright invasion.”
When war is declared,
the truth is the first casualty.
German state TV reports: Syrian rebels claim responsibility for attack on Turkey
“The first victim of war is the truth”
“The first report clearly states that the rebels officially claimed responsibility for the attack on Turkey.”
“It is telling to see how the pressure on this TV station worked. They had to back-paddle:”
“At 1300 it was the Syrian Rebels officially claiming responsibility.”
“In the main evening news at 1900 it was the Syrians (suggesting the Syrian army). This is a prime example of how the first and probably most authentic and truthful report is turned and twisted by the spin doctors to come to the desired result. In these times of Orwellian double speak we have to give credit to the ZDF that they did not stick with “The Syrians did it” but at least ended with a question mark – in the late evening they leave it open who was responsible.”
Yurt Newspaper: Erdogan’s Government Handed over the Mortars to Armed Groups in Syria which Shelled Akcakale Town
“The Newspaper also revealed that the bomber which was used to launch the mortar on the Turkish Akcakale town is only used by NATO.”

Syria, the Story Thus Far
“According to a report of Stratfor, the private and conservative American intelligence firm with high-level connections, many of whose emails were obtained by Wikileaks: “most of the [Syrian] opposition’s more serious claims have turned out to be grossly exaggerated or simply untrue.” They claimed “that regime forces besieged Homs and imposed a 72-hour deadline for Syrian defectors to surrender themselves and their weapons or face a potential massacre.” That news made international headlines. Stratfor’s investigation, however, found “no signs of a massacre”, and warned that “opposition forces have an interest in portraying an impending massacre, hoping to mimic the conditions that propelled a foreign military intervention in Libya.” Stratfor then stated that any suggestions of massacres were unlikely because the Syrian “regime has calibrated its crackdowns to avoid just such a scenario … that could lead to an intervention based on humanitarian grounds.”4”
Anything coming out of the mouths of the corporate media regarding Syria, just assume it’s propaganda to get us into world war 3.

Bloomberg: SEC Sues the One Rating Firm (Egan Jones) Not on Wall Street’s Take
“The Securities and Exchange Commission, it seems, has finally lost its mind.”
Bloomberg gets it it seems.
“In April, motivated by what I consider pure maliciousness, the SEC initiated a “cease and desist” administrative proceeding it deemed “necessary for the protection of investors and in the public interest” against Egan-Jones Ratings Co., a privately owned, 20-person firm based in Haverford, Pennsylvania, and against its principal owner, Sean Egan.”
“Egan-Jones, founded in 1995, is one of nine ratings companies that the SEC has accredited as “nationally recognized,” allowing the firm to rate the debt of sovereign nations, companies and asset-backed securities, among others. Notably, it is the only one of the nine that gets paid by investors instead of by the issuers of securities.”
I’ll repeat that in a larger font – paid by investors.
Now compare that with what the SEC said – protection of investors.
And now compare that with the fact that we had all those AAA rated mortgage backed securities fail back in 2008, the first time in financial history I understand that anything AAA rated has failed.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Credit_rating_agencies_and_the_subprime_crisis “This crisis could not have happened without the rating agencies” “An estimated $3.2 trillion in loans were made to homeowners with bad credit and undocumented incomes (e.g., subprime or Alt-A mortgages) between 2002 and 2007.”
And so my question is where is the protection, unfortunately after incurring these losses, for the investors in these AAA rated mortgage backed securities ?
The frauds of recent times seem to be eclipsing the frauds of the 1930s by orders of magnitude. The destruction to society this time round is only getting started, who will stop it before we are totally destroyed ?

NDAA, Arrest, and Indefinite Detention
The Maimed By Chris Hedges
“War exposed the lies of patriotism and collective virtue of the nation that our churches, our schools, our press, our movies, our books, our government told us about ourselves, about who we were.”
“Our brother, yes, our brother, is in the Taliban and the Iraqi insurgency and al-Qaida. And he has an automatic rifle. And he kills. And he is becoming us. War is always the same plague. It imparts the same deadly virus. It teaches us to deny another’s humanity, worth, being, and to kill and be killed.”
“Towering about us are banks and other financial institutions that profit from war. War, for some, is a business. And across this country lies a labyrinth of military industries that produce nothing but instruments of death.”
“It is because we know evil, our own evil, that we do not let go, do not surrender. It is because we know evil that we resist. It is because we know violence that we are nonviolent.”
I have no doubt that peace activists will soon be accused of giving “substantial support” to terrorists and that the indefinite detention power by the military without charge, without trial, without judge, without a lawyer is intended for them.

“Just imagine what would happen if some crazed Right-winger were to appear on BBC and say that the Nazis had been justified in killing six million Jews in order to achieve their aims.”

Obama Spin Reveals Elite Roots

“Elites love government because they control society via mercantilism, the use of public power to enhance private advantages.”
“As the US has evolved along increasingly imperial lines, mercantilism has grown more obvious and intrusive. Over US$3 trillion is administered via government programs and bureaucrats. With so much money at stake, the political process itself has been increasingly rationalized. In many ways US Inc. is a large business, run by powerful people who have a great deal at stake financially”
“Less and less is left up to chance these days. Candidates are vetted for malleability and cooperation within the boundaries of what is tolerable. Someone like Congressman Ron Paul (R-Texas) offered up well-received ideas about freedom and free markets. The “establishment” ostracized him and the GOP itself worked hard to ensure he would not win the nomination nor even have a voice at the convention.”

New Evidence of Early Man (1h25m video)
“From the EMMY AWARD WINNING Producers of “The Mystery of the Sphinx” and the Producers of “The Mysterious Origins of Man” comes a new ground breaking film about “New Evidence of Early Man: SUPPRESSED.” What happens when scientific evidence conflicts with theory? In the early sixties, discoveries were made in Central Mexico, which were the handiwork of early man. Exquisitely carved animal bones and advanced spear points caused much excitement, including a Life Magazine article, until the dates came in. 5 mutually exclusive geological tests revealed they were over 250,000 years old. In spite of the geochronology, archaeologists insisted the dates were too ridiculously old. This world-class archaeological region became off-limits for official research, a “professional forbidden zone.””
“This is the story of the shocking events that occurred, told first-hand by many of the actual participants. It reveals how one field of science can conflict with another and how new discoveries must battle evidence vs. belief, exposing what some have called “the dark side of archaeology.””
1m35s “the remains of an ancestral human that lived in Africa almost 2 million years ago.”

“one council member: What is it that makes the humans so special? What is it that draws you to them?”
“another council member: They fight. They argue. They are ruled by passions and fears.”
“Delenn: Yes. That is their strength. They do not seek conformity. They do not surrender. Out of their differences come symmetry. Their unique capacity to fight against impossible odds. Hurt them, and they only come back stronger. The passions we deplore have taken them to their place in the stars, and will propel them to a great destiny. Their only weakness is that they do not recognize their own greatness. They forget that they have come to this place through two million years of evolution and struggle and blood. They are better than they think, and nobler than they know. They carry with them the capacity to walk among the stars like giants. They are the future, and we have much to learn from them.”
Delenn is of the Minbari race, humanoids emblematic of the LOTR elves and Star Trek’s Vulcans.
2m40s “The finds from Africa and Mexico share many similarities but the story of what happened with each discovery is one of the most dramatically different parallels in the history of archaeology. While finds were finds were embraced as confirmation of man’s origins in Africa, Arm? discovery ignited a firestorm of controversy about man’s first occurrence in the New World and a suppression of evidence that continues to this day.”

1h20m40s “To say I’m not going to believe anything regardless of what the evidence is is probably the most unscientific statement I’ve ever heard in my life. If the scientist didn’t yesterday that they’ve got to stop with their old beliefs and follow the evidence where would progress ever come from in the last 5,000 years of science as we think of it ? It wouldn’t be there. I got into this thing 14 years ago thinking I’d spend 2 or 3 months and maybe a thousand dollars or so. It turned out to be 14 years and hundreds of thousands of dollars. And I want the viewer to understand that I never did and never will expect one dollars return for that.”

Truthdigger of the Week: ‘Democracy Now!’ – presidential debate moderator lobbing softballs

Anyone who would argue that the USA would never go ‘banana republic’ I would say that it has happened 4 times already in America since 1776, why not a 5th time ?
Let me recap, John Adams, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin D. Roosevelt and now George W. Bush has set up a future president to go bananas.
I wonder how many Americans can name all five presidents ?
America must destroy it’s core principles in order to save America.
If I was to say that this Military Commissions Act is an abomination would I be declared an ‘enemy combatant’ ?

Alberta, Canada Police Bust 1,600 Daisy Plants Mistaken For Marijuana
“The best part is the police won’t admit their “whoops-a-daisy.” Seriously, look at those plants pictured – Were the police high? Was the stick up their ass in high school or college really so far up there they never came across the devil’s weed? On July 30, Alberta’s Law Enforcement Response Team thought they had made a big find: a drug bust of more than 1,600 marijuana plants. They held the trashbags proudly in front of media, celebrating the historic moment. The suspected plants were ripped out of a yard in Lethbridge, Alta this summer, in what was at the time largest drug bust in Lethbridge history. But, the plants in questions have been confirmed to be not marijuana but, instead, daisies. Quickly, the historic moment became quite historic for another reason: stupidity.”
I had to read this twice to be sure I wasn’t going insane.

“”This is a clear warning signal to parents that if they are not watching TV, they ought to turn it off,” says Dr. Victor Strasburger, a pediatrician from the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque who has previously studied media exposure among children, but who was not involved in the new study. “[It is also] a reminder that parents should be avoiding screen time in infants under two.””
And exposure to the television corporate media will brainwash people.
Voting machines hacked; can a paper trail stop election fraud?
“It seems that in every presidential election reports surface of election fraud. Many Americans feel that some sort of proof stating who you voted for will help curb rigging an election. According to a study, Diebold voting machines can easily be hacked and could alter the outcome of an election. So what can we do to stop this from happening? Roger Johnston, a member of the vulnerability asset team for Argonne National Lab and Howard University Professor, Wilmer J. Leon, give us there take on the issue.”

The US Government Today Has More Data On The Average American Than The Stasi Did On East Germans
“the US surveillance regime has more data on the average American than the Stasi ever did on East Germans. And, of course, as we’ve already seen, much of that data seems to be collected illegally with little oversight… and with absolutely no security benefit.”
I’ll repeat in a larger font – no security benefit.
So the agencies of this US Government, just as the stasi was, is nothing at all to do with security.

Nelson Mandela was previously labelled ‘terrorist’ but is now accepted.

Police pepperspray 15-month-old
“The driver of the car admitted he was at fault and said he would pay the fine. Homoud then attempted to enter the club to drop off his son, who was cold, to another brother so that he could produce his papers for the police officers.”
“Homoud, who does not speak Danish, attempted to explain the situation to the officer, but the officer refused to let him enter the club. The officer grabbed Homoud’s shirt and Homoud then raised his voice, but according to witnesses did not make any threatening gesture. After a short argument, the officer took out his pepperspray and sprayed Homoud in the face, as well as the surrounding area. The spray got in the face of the 15-month-old boy, who had since been handed to his uncle, as well as the uncle and two affiliates of the club.”
This stupidity of this police officer simply boggles the mind.
This police officer must unreservedly apologise or quit the force.
“The War is Worth Waging”: Afghanistan’s Vast Reserves of Minerals and Natural Gas

“While Afghanistan is acknowledged as a strategic hub in Central Asia, bordering on the former Soviet Union, China and Iran, at the crossroads of pipeline routes and major oil and gas reserves, its huge mineral wealth as well as its untapped natural gas reserves have remained, until June 2010, totally unknown to the American public.”

A Hungry War Machine Ignited by Gangster Bombers By Cynthia McKinney
“I do believe that the position of the vast majority of the world’s people is one that is utterly tired of a hungry war machine ignited by gangster bankers concomitantly devouring the money resources of the world’s people.”
“There is a growing awareness of exactly where the problem lies:”
“it is not in the millions of working people who struggle every month just to make ends meet;”
“it is not in the immigrant fleeing the intentional destabilization of her homeland;”
“it is not in the descendants of Africans imported from Africa for enslavement;”
“it is not in the right-wing White person misled to believe that individuals from the foregoing groups are his enemy;”
“it is not in the group of people who pray to Allah;”
“it is not in the people on the street this weekend demanding peace and an end to war.”
“It is clear that those who helped construct this current society and now preside over it are also the ones who benefit from having things as they are today.”
“Not too long ago, I received a call from a lawyer with the ACLU who tracks politically-inspired civil liberties violations and he told me that my name came up in a Texas Fusion Center of the Department of Homeland Security document as someone, associating with former Attorney General Ramsey Clark and traveling to Lebanon with him, who should be surveilled for any attempts engaged in by me to push Sharia law for the U.S. It’s ludicrous, I know. It’s even more ludicrous that U.S. tax dollars are being spent to surveil people for this stupidity. But there it is.”

“The U.S. State Department called the arrest the “latest crackdown” on journalists.”
“”We are deeply disturbed by the Cuban government’s repeated use of arbitrary detention to silence critics, disrupt peaceful assembly, and impede independent journalism,” State Department spokesman William Ostick said.”
But when the president of the USA wants to indefinitely detain somebody that is most definitely not arbitrary (that was sarcasm).
And when the NYPD and other American PDs impede independent journalism like InfoWars and WeAreChange journalists we are told they are not really journalists.
They bring a journal of events I want be told of so that makes them journalists.
New Arab-Specific SARS Has Origins in Israeli Biological Weapons Labs in Tel Aviv
“The Zionist-controlled Israeli government has been trying to identify specific genes carried by human of Arab descent in order to create a race-specific bioweapon that would covertly be exposed to Arab populations in order to commit a massive ethnic cleansing. Anonymous Israeli and US intelligence sources claimed that a genetically modified bacterium/virus was being developed as a bio-weapon that could be spread through the air or water supply.”
“The focus would be certain Arab communities. Dedi Zucker, Israeli parliament member explained: “Morally, based on our history, and our tradition and our experience, such a weapon is monstrous and should be denied.””
“Israeli Defense, working with a British defense facility at Porton Down asserts that that this race-specific bio-weapon is possible.”
“Further experiments into biological weapons specifically tailored to attack Arabs were conducted in a secret Israeli program at the Institute for Biological Research in Nes Tsiona, Tel Aviv. This location houses clandestine chemical and biological weapons as well as scientists that specialize in genetic engineering of deadly micro-organisms that only attack specified genes in humans.”
“Israeli scientists have successfully identified the genetic profile of Arab communities with an emphasis on those of Iraqi descent. The plan is to plant a virus or bacteria in the local water supply or spray it in the air.”
“The British Medical Association became interested in the Israeli endeavors to create an Arab-specific virus as a form of warfare that could be devastating in a more effective way than conventional means. According to Britain’s Biological Defense Ministry, “We have reached a point now where there is an obvious need for an international convention to control biological weapons.””
“The Zionist-controlled Israeli government has also sanctioned the use of secret laboratories where four human subjects were killed and 25 wounded in a mysterious explosion at the Biological Institute. This was admitted by a media advisor for Zionist-puppet and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.”
“In the name of self-defense, former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon explained that: “Israel reserves its right to repel any possible Iraqi attack.” Sharon also alluded to the ability of Israel to deploy biological weapons when he confirmed that “Israeli knows how to prevent being attacked.””
“US Army Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas published information in a journal intended for military personnel called Ethnic Specific Weapons, wherein the history, desirability and possibilities of biological weapons tailored for specific races of human could be genetically engineered to defend a nation against attack.”
The defense of a nation from a supposed attack which would include killing every human being with any of the target genetics of such a bio-weapon.
We are now on the lookout for such a crime against humanity.
