Anglophilia is a mental illness and a bigger sin than Zionism
As we mark the sesquicentennial of the Civil War, commemorations of the mid-point year of that terrible conflict in 1863 are dominated by much-studied battles like Gettysburg, Vicksburg, and Chickamauga. Often forgotten are events of perhaps even greater strategic importance – the arrival of the Russian Baltic Fleet in New York City on September 24, 1863, and of the Russian Pacific Squadron in San Francisco on October 12 of the same year. The two Russian admirals carried secret sealed orders they were instructed to open only if Great Britain and France declared war on Russia and/or the United States.
Any aggression by London and Paris against the Union in support of the Confederacy would have caused the Russian Empire to enter the war on the side of Lincoln. If war had come, the secret orders told the Russian admirals to cooperate with the Union Navy in attacking Anglo-French commerce on the high seas, in the manner of the highly successful Confederate raiders like the Alabama.
Napoleon III of France and Lord John Russell, Lord Palmerston, and William Gladstone of Britain had been threatening to intervene in favor of the Confederacy since 1861. They were deterred by the pro-Lincoln policy of the Imperial Court of St. Petersburg. With the arrival of the Russian fleets, consternation in London, Paris, and their partner Madrid was great. In the North, still traumatized by losses at Gettysburg and Chickamauga, and by the New York City draft riots, the Russian fleets were a decisive morale booster. When a Confederate warship was feared to be approaching San Francisco, the Russian admiral cleared for action and prepared to defend the port. Russia was the only country to extend direct military support to the Lincoln government.
Cassius Marcellus Clay of Kentucky, a cousin of the Great Compromiser who was Lincoln’s Ambassador to Russia, later claimed that he had done more than any person to save the Union by obtaining Russian help to keep the British and French out of the war. Secretary of the Navy Gideon Welles summed up much Northern opinion when he observed: “God bless the Russians!” But later, Anglophilia and the Cold War helped obscure these decisive facts.

-Traitorous Jesuit Pope
Pope Francis said the Catholic Church should not allow its bans on gay marriage, abortion and contraception to dominate its teachings, but must be a more welcoming Church where priests are understanding pastors and not cold, dogmatic bureaucrats.In a dramatically blunt interview with Civilta Cattolica, the Italian Jesuit monthly, Francis said the Church had locked itself up in “small things, in small-minded rules”. It must find a new balance between upholding rules and demonstrating mercy, “otherwise even the moral edifice of the Church is likely to fall like a house of cards…”
It has fallen like a house of cards due to the Pederasts, LGBTs, Masons and satanists you and your predecessors have let in. This is a very slick and evil pope. Abortion is murder, LGBT is sin. The West is dying due to birth control demographically ex England and Israel. Birth control is not sin but shirking your duty to keep your people alive is. God created the languages of the world, which created the tribes.
-Israel is a nation that “does injustice to the people of the Middle East and has brought instability to the region with its war-mongering policies,” Iranian President Hasan Rouhani said in the second part of an interview he gave to NBC News broadcast Thursday.Rouhani said Israel “shouldn’t allow itself to give speeches about a democratically and freely elected government.” He furthermore said Iran was not going to pursue Nuclear weapons, and had not done so.
-Putin: If Berlusconi were gay, no one would lay a finger on him. Interfax

US indices are not rising further above the gains seen after the FOMC decision yesterday afternoon. For market observers, the Fed’s decision to hold pat on QE is unremarkable. Bernanke and all other FED officials have reiterated for three months that any decision to taper would be primarily data-driven, it’s not hard to believe that recent data softness stayed the FED’s hand. The decision to hold is even less surprising given the growing likelihood of a government shutdown and fiscal armageddon later this month thanks to policy gambling by the House GOP and the White House.Couple that with the demand of the EU bankers for renewing the LTROs and more wealth transfer, via inflation to the banking class is in order. The market is now focused on whether the taper will begin at the next FOMC conclave in October or the December meeting, or later. Yesterday, Bernanke highlighted that an unscheduled conference call after an FOMC meeting was entirely possible in the event of an unexpected policy move, making the lack of a scheduled press conference in October irrelevant. The choice of the new FED chairman may also play a role: as PIMCO’s Bill Gross put it, yesterday’s decision looks like a handoff between Bernanke and the frontrunner, Janet Yellen.
The US economic data out this morning was decent. The Philly Fed survey was much stronger than expected, with a headline number that jumped 13 points to a 30-month high of 22.3, while the six-month foreward outlook gained 20 points to a 10-year high of 58.2. This follows a solid performance in the Empire State survey earlier this week.Still this area of the country has $60 bln of USA tax dollars at work for boondoggle flood control projects. August existing home sales hit yet another six-year high. The jobless claims did not suffer as much from the delayed filings in California and Nevada as had been expected, although the Labor Department cautioned that the two states are still working through their issues. Initial claims are poised to drop below 300K, while the four-week average of initial claims is at its lowest level since fall 2007. With Obama-care and the big tax bite and likely another one after the budget fight and with two pending ‘free trade’ agreements by Obama to further outsource jobs, the USE is not going to add jobs this year such that the USE will have a real self sustaining job generating recovery. On many levels, like Bush, Obama is working to impede small and medium sized business adding jobs through tax and regulation policies.
McDonalds gave up all its post-decision gains and then some today after analysts dismissed its 5% dividend increase. Bank of America warned that investors were looking for more like +10% and many consider the modest increase just another sign of the company’s cautious outlook. JPMorgan has admitted wrongdoing and payed $920M in fines in civil settlements with US and UK regulators over the ‘London Whale’ situation. However the deal has not put possible criminal charges behind it, and the CFTC said it intends to recommend an enforcement action against the bank for its derivatives trading.
Rite Aid is up more than 15% after reporting a small Q2 profit (versus expectations for a loss) and raised its FY14 guidance significantly. Executives said they are seeing strong tailwinds in 2014 from more people insured under Obama-care. Shares of Oracle are more or less flat after the firm reported solid Q1 results on good y/y EPS growth. Revenue growth y/y was less than spectacular when you consider real global inflation and real USA inflation rates.
The NYT affirmed after Boehner/Cantors disastrous backing of the Syria war, it was back a real Budget fight with Obama or step down as House leader.
In gold, GS was out trying to explain its wrong way call on gold and dug themselves further in the hole by saying they remained bearish on it. Likely GS was short gold ahead of the FMOC, they admitted much but covered in the two days before. Golds not done much since it was taken down from 1400 on the taper talk. But the Queen of Europe and the BOE lead 1300 tonne gold sale is still hurting the market along with a lot of analysts trying to force gold down to 1000.

-War Criminal /Terrorist Gen. Dempsey sets up War Command Center in Jordan illegally
$ 4 Tln at oil at Stake for the Windsors-Rothschilds-Dutch Royal families and Eretz Israel, this is not going away. You can see the extent the Obama administration has lied to the American people and the lies from the Senate and perennial liar the Jimmy Savile General heading this up. This is not funded.
Syria should let Jordan and Saudi Arabia have it , if they are going to be carved up like roast Goy. Wiping a few palaces off the earth has always been a boon to democracy. Kings and wannabe kings are always the problem.
Dempsey is one creepy evil guy. Does not even look human. Demonic eyes. Ashkenazi eyes, ”royal’ ears, hooked nose, sloped forehead, Ashkenazi pattern baldness. Sock sucker.
Here is the little pink tie wearing fairy makes a fool out of the USA by singing for Prince Charles. Your tax dollars paid for this royal karaoke mash-up. The little fairy knows who he works for at least and does not hesitate to sing for his 13 course supper.
These Generals makes 100 of millions in graft at his level for taking the USA into an illegal war. That’s what is all about at the top at the Pentagram that and the soft bottoms of little Arab boys.
This guy has no combat record. Another fairy desk jockey. I would like to see this little fairy lead the charge into Syria and take on Hezbollah.
You’re a coward, a traitor, a war criminal and a terrorist and a redcoat Dempsey. Stay in England where you belong. Just Change out of the USA uniform before you leave.
What a despicable man. Evil to the core of his being. Enjoy hell fairy. Get there soon. This is the guy behind the LGBT-P army. Jimmy Savile would have felt right at home ‘underneath’ General Dempsey. What a despicable man. Evil to the core of his being. Enjoy hell fairy. Get there soon.

The ECB’s Money Market Contact Group, a panel of industry members who advise the ECB, have called for the central bank to renew its three year long term refinancing operation (LTRO) next year due to fears over funding pressures as the current loans expire. WSJ
The European Commission yesterday presented its plans for the regulation of financial benchmarks – such as Libor and Euribor – but watered down previous plans to move the oversight of Libor to the European Securities Markets Authority (ESMA) in Paris. The proposal still includes plans to force firms to participate in crucial benchmarks and increases the liability for firms if a benchmark fails. Italy senate elections committee voted 15-1 against a PDL Senator’s recommendation that Berlusconi keep his Senate seat, a first step in a complex process that could see Berlusconi stripped of his Senate seat.
Focus reports that the European Commission is reluctant to criticise Jeroen Dijsselbloem, the Dutch Finance Minister and head of the Eurogroup, for failing once again to achieve the EU mandated 3% budget deficit target for the Netherlands in 2014.
Norway Central Bank noted that its Rate Path Outlook saw its key rate to be kept at today’s level in the period to summer 2014, after which it will rise to a more normal level. They lowered their 2013 non-oil GDP growth outlook to 1.75% v 2.5% seen in June while raising their 2013 core CPI view to 1.75% v 1.25% seen in June. Norway Central Bank Gov Qvigstad stated in his post rate decision press conference that there was now an equal chance of either holding or cutting rate and added that the bank needs big surprises to raise at next meeting. It did not consider a rate change at today’s meeting.Norway Fin Min Johnsen sees GDP growth above 40-year average; He thinks forecasts for CPI are too low.
The Swiss National Bank (SNB) reiterated in its rate decision that they would enforce the EUR/CHF floor of 1.2000 with utmost determination and that CHF is still overvalued. It also reiterated its view to be ready to take further measures if necessary. The SNB noted that property prices have risen further but there are some signs of easing in the mortgage and property markets. It raised its 2013 GDP forecast to 1.5-2.0% from 1.0-1.5% and raised its 2013 inflation view to -0.2% from -0.3% prior.
A new Insa poll for Bild predicts that Chancellor Merkel’s governing coalition would fall short of parliamentary majority, while the new anti-euro party Alternative für Deutschland (AfD) has reached the 5% threshold to enter the Bundestag. The poll puts the CDU/CSU on 38%, the SPD on 28%, Die Linke on 9%, the Greens on 8%, the FDP on 6%, the AfD on 5%, and the Pirate party on 2%. Meanwhile, in interview with Die Zeit, German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schauble says that AfD’s anti-euro policy “is totally wrong, has no credibility and is extremely dangerous for our prosperity.”
In a debate in the Dutch Parliament today, the Europe spokesman for Dutch Prime MinisterMark Rutte’s VVD Party, Mark Verheijen, said that EU treaty change is “inevitable” and that “when we want less Brussels in several domains, return whole policy areas, then we should not shy away from the option of treaty change.” He also advocated slimming down the European Commission and that the European Parliament sessions in Strasbourg should be scrapped, according to NRC Handelsblad.
The EU/IMF/ECB Troika released its first review of the Cypriot bailout program yesterday stating that the country was on track but warned that the banking sector and the weaker than expected labour market could deepen the recession. Separately, Cypriot Finance Minister Harris Georgiades said yesterday that all capital controls, except on transferring money abroad, will be lifted in early 2014. Speaking on Mega TV last night Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades said he was putting together evidence against the Cypriot Central Bank Governor Panicos Demetriades to demonstrate his “weakness”, which he will then submit to the Cypriot Supreme Court in the hope of having him removed from his position. Anastasiades said Demetriades had failed to perform his duties in assessing and approving the appointment of a new board of the Bank of Cyprus causing uncertainty, adding “this cannot go on”.
The Greek government has hinted that it will seek to ban far-right party Golden Dawn after it was linked to the murder of Pavlos Fyssas, a leading left-wing musician in Athens. Meanwhile, Bild reports that Klaus-Peter Willsh (CDU) and Frank Schäffler (FDP) – both well known for their opposition to the eurozone bailouts – have called on Greece to forgo its turn at hosting the EU Presidency in the first half of 2014, in order to save the country around €100m. Separately, the Guardian reports that the birth-rate in Greece has fallen by around 15% over the past four years, with officials citing the impact of austerity.

* For our Anglozionist readers and the evil people in the CIA/NSA/Pentagon/Mossad/MI6
*Bullies, Losers, War Criminals , Terrorists at Pentagram think they can at last win a war in Syria
CIA Already Doing So, Pentagon Wants In
According to administration officials, the Pentagon has put forward a proposal for direct US military training and equipping of Syria’s rebel forces, formally putting the US military in direct contact with rebel fighters.
It’s a first, of sorts. The US is already training and arming Syria’s rebels, of course, but is doing so with the CIA taking the helm. That’s allowed the US to keep the details of the operations secret, but officials have also regularly bragged about the policy.
Having the Pentagon either replace or supplant the CIA efforts would theoretically give the policy more transparency, but seems primarily aimed at escalating the US role in the civil war.
General Martin Dempsey, the Joint Chiefs Chairman, had hinted at seeking Pentagon authority on the matter in recent testimony, saying that the military “knows” it can turn the moderate rebels into a viable fighting force.
