Nigel Farage - Europe is Collapsing, Buy Gold & Expect QE

“Of course, over the last couple of years we’ve had two bailouts of Greece, a bailout of Ireland, Portugal.  We’re now on the verge of needing a bailout in Cyprus, but perhaps more significantly, a bailout in Spain.”

“There is all sorts of twisting and turning going on with the Spanish saying, ‘Please save our banks, but don’t put us under the austerity measures that you’ve put the other countries under.’  

If one looks globally, we’ve got people like David Cameron, and importantly, President Obama, who are basically saying, ‘The euro project must be saved.  It must be saved at all costs.’ ....

For that to happen the Eurozone has to turn into a state, and a state that effectively has a Fed. Full Story/Source

Grant On Bernanke's Continuing "Grand Manipulation"

Tyler Durden's picture

In preparation for what we are about to receive from the Charmain of the Fed, may we be truly grateful, Jim Grant offered CNBC's Maria B the forthright advice last night "prepare for platitudes but watch what they are doing not what they are saying". The ever outspoken Grant notes that the Fed's balance sheet has been contracting (unlike Maria's mainstream perspective); for the past three months the Fed's balance sheet has contracted at an annualized rate of 10% - even as Fed-head after Fed-head talk up QE and so on. So unless they continue buying securities - since the short-dated positions will continue to roll off - the Fed's balance sheet will continue to contract and therefore the stimulative effect will fall
Grant does expect QE3 since it is the fun-drug that we have been using for 4 or 5 years and that Bernanke will need little pushing to continue the Grand Manipulation. He ends on a rather interesting note that the Wisconsin win and the potential for an Obama loss in November may be more of a positive driver for stocks since markets begin to revert to a free market once again - we suspect this is not the case given the donors/beneficiaries under Romney's wing. But rest assured - the bespectacled bear ends on the chilling note that 'the long-term implications are bad' for the ongoing manipulation that is now the status quo.

Another False Flag Syrian slaughter by agent provocateurs - Up to 100 bound & slain in Hama massacre

A new massacre has apparently taken place in Syria, in a small village near the city of Hama.
