By John Galt July 24, 2011 So the question becomes will it matter to the markets or won’t it?

BREAKING 1750 ET PER CNN: Boehner to hold conference calls with Republicans at the same time Pelosi and Reid meet  with Obama. No further details.

BREAKING PER FNC 1640 ET: Pelosi & Reid going to White House at 6 p.m. to meet Obama

By John Galt July 24, 2011 Just a breaking news feature, no details.

7/24 AEP: Europe’s ideologues took the whole world to the brink of disaster

By John Galt July 24, 2011 This one is a miss in my humble opinion. While it is true that the “ideologues” took Europe to the brink, there is no solution to a problem which has not been solved.

However, Evans-Pritchard’s opinion is always worth a read so enjoy: Europe’s ideologues took the…


Piracy off West Africa Now: Italian Oil tanker seized off coast of Benin

By John Galt July 24, 2011 The news flow has been rightfully focused on the growing U.S. debt ceiling crisis but meanwhile the ocean rats known as pirates continue their plunder. Reuters just published a story recently about an Italian oil tanker with 23 crew members being seized off the coast of Benin in West Africa. The world’s powers have refused to address this issue off of the Horn of Africa beyond concrete steps like those taken by China and Russia, namely termination of all pirates when possible, and the end…

The Other European Housing Crash that has the ECB worried

By John Galt July 24, 2011 While the world sighed relief with the temporary resolution of the crisis in Greece by permitting an actual temporary default which is not a default according to the banksters, the European Union is far from out of the woods as trouble lurks in nation after nation and the myth that debt monetization was forbidden by the structure of the European Central Bank (ECB) has been shattered forever. In fact if one takes a moment to reflect on the growth of monetary aggregates per the ECB’s…
