USA kills 500, spends $1 Billion EVERY DAY SINCE 2001 in illegal Wars of Aggression ~ link ~ The 9/11 False Flag Op was a Coup against US Constitutional government and was the second coup in America following the Nov. 22, 1963 assassination/coup. We have allowed the worst scum on Earth to pull two coups and we are paying a high price and may soon be paying with our very lives in WWIII. Stirling
India turns down Israeli Defense Minister's request to make an official visit ~ link ~ The Indians purchase a large amount of defense equipment and support from Israel. However, they do not want to fall into the globalist/Netanyahu Zionist trap, that is set for them, by joining the Third World War on the side of the 'West' and thereby taking on Pakistan and China in a nuclear mutual annihilation. So far, both Pakistan and India, two bitter enemies, have refrained from working to establish an Indian Sub-Continent War Theater to WWIII. Stirling
ECB stops monetary policy operations to some Greek banks - with update ~ link
Spanish debt risk premium hits record high ~ link
European banks battered as reality sets in ~ link ~ As Europe opened last night markets were very weak with Sovereigns gapping dramatically wider and equity and credit markets under pressure. Just as in the last few days in Europe though, early weakness has been tempered by a modest belief that the ECB will save us all if it gets bad enough. Today was a little different - as we noted it appeared the ECB was starting to play chicken a little more vocally and while equity, credit, and sovereigns rallied in their usual way off the open - there was one critical difference - financials did not. Early on it was clear that many traders were looking to place the short-financials, long-sovereign credit trade, this implicitly forced LTRO-encumbered banks to underperform (as Greek, Italian, and Spanish banks were crushed in stocks and spreads) moving the LTRO Stigma wider still - back near record wides (and subordinated spreads starting to decompress from senior again). The EURUSD was choppy but once the ECB headlines hit and rumors swirled of more bank runs, cessation of support, and capital controls, it fell back below 1.2700 once again (only to surge a little into the Europe day-session close - back to unch. Treasuries and Bunds were in lockstep - leaking higher in yield as the technical support for sovereigns came in (not from the ECB but via our financials-sovereign spreads arb) but this gave way into the close as risk asset weakness dragged yields lower in Germany. US equities faded into the Europe close (as normal) ending back at a balanced VWAP, with EU financial stocks down over 1% on average, and EU stocks overall down around 0.75% (BE500).
Greek parties agree on caretaker government to hold new parliamentary elections ~ link ~ After meeting with President Karolos Papoulias, party leaders agreed to appoint a senior judge as the head of an interim government to organize the ballot.
Heads of six out of seven parties, including New Democracy's Antonis Samaras, the Radical Left Coalition’s Alexis Tsipras, Pasok's Evangelos Venizelos, and heads of three smaller parties took part in the meeting on Wednesday.
The main absentee was head of the extremist right-wing Golden Dawn Party who did not attend the meeting after he was not invited to the previous talks on Tuesday.
In "The Telegraph" today, Ambrose Evans-Pritchard says Greece's exit from the EU will cost France and Germany 155 billion Euros and cause a Depression. The Illuminati will use this crisis to advance their agenda for world government dictatorship.
For hundreds of years, mankind has been force-fed a diet of depression, war, Communism, division, depravity and dysfunction by central bankers like the Rothschilds. They want to translate their monopoly over our government's credit into a total monopoly over power, culture and religion, i.e. the New World Order.
The Battle over CEO Pay: When the Top 1% take on the Top 0.01% ~ link ~ The level of pay and perks that senior management make is obscene, at most major corporations. Few CEOs and senior officers are worth the kind of money that they "earn". Stirling

Canary In The Gold Mine: In historic move, Japanese pension fund switches to gold for first time ever ~ link ~ As US weak hands keep piling out of gold whether to make space for the Facebook IPO tomorrow, or just to load up on paper currencies in advance of central banks printing much more, two things have happened: China is now on its way to becoming the biggest source of gold demand, surpassing India, but more importantly as of hours ago, in a truly historic move, "Okayama Metal & Machinery has become the first Japanese pension fund to make public purchases of gold, in a sign of dwindling faith in paper currencies." Not our words: the FT's.
