Something Wicked This Way Comes: Futures Point to Another Bloodbath on Wall Street

  • Something Wicked This Way Comes: Futures Point to Another bloodbath on Wall Street
    by https://www.rt.com/
    The selloff that hit US equities this week is likely to continue on Friday, according to premarket data. The spiral has already erased this year’s record gains on US markets. Dow Jones Industrial Average futures slipped 300 points, S&P 500 contracted 40 points, and Nasdaq futures indicate a 186-point drop at the opening bell.

    Investors are disappointed by US corporate earnings. “Expectations for US company earnings are quite high, so whenever they are not being met, the reactions are quite severe,” said Miraji Othman, credit strategist at BayernLB, as quoted by Reuters.

    “We have grown used to solid numbers, 18 percent revenue growth, 25 percent revenue growth and so on. The valuations have become quite ambitious.”

    US trade wars, Federal Reserve rates policy, and the dispute between Italy and the European Union are also pressuring the markets.

    “The first, and most important [worry] is that Fed tightening and fading fiscal stimulus will cause the US economy to take a turn for the worse… The second is that China’s economy will continue to struggle,”
     analysts at Capital Economics said in a note to clients.


    “As we have been arguing for a while now, these worries are likely to get worse over the next 12 months or so.”

    While the US markets recovered some losses on Thursday, the previous trading session saw one of the worst sell-offs in recent history. The Dow Jones fell 608 points, or 2.4 percent, to 24,583.42 on Wednesday. The S&P 500 plunged 84.59 points, or 3.1 percent, to 2,656.10, marking its sixth straight losing session, while the tech-heavy Nasdaq dropped over four percent.

Bomb Expert Labels Today’s ‘Pipe Bomb’ Scare A Dumb Hoax

  • Bomb Expert Labels Today’s ‘Pipe Bomb’ Scare A Dumb Hoax
    by http://dcwhispers.com/
    “DUMB.” That’s the assessment of a Navy veteran and professional bomb disposal officer regarding the toy-like ‘bombs’ that the media has gone gaga over today. In fact, Tom Sauer likens these non-functional pipe bombs to a few road flares taped to an ‘old-timey alarm clock ticking away’ like you would see in cartoons. 

    Which of course leads to the real important question. Who would send out these fake bombs and why? Who might have anything political to gain two weeks out from the Midterm Elections by staging a fake bomb hoax against noted Democrat politicians that then generates Establishment Media hysteria?

EU ON THE BRINK: How Brussels Row with Rome Can CONDEMN the Eurozone to History

  • EU ON THE BRINK: How Brussels Row with Rome can CONDEMN the Eurozone to History
    by JOE BARNES, BRUSSELS CORRESPONDENT, https://www.express.co.uk/
    UNPRECEDENTED European Union backlash to the Italian budget risks unsettling an already fragile Eurozone struggling to truly recover from past economic crisis.

    Careful reforms to the EU’s single currency bloc remain a work in progress, which prompted influential MEP Guy Verhofstadt to demand more urgency from Brussels to conclude its work before the next crisis strikes. The EU’s top officials fear that next financial meltdown could be born out of Italy’s plan to run at a 2.4 percent of GDP, which has been returned to Rome with a demand for change by the European Commission.

    On Tuesday, the powerful Brussels executive rejected a national budget for the first time since introducing new post-crisis fiscal rules in 2014, which were designed to avoid another disaster like Greece.

‘We Are a SOVEREIGN State’ Italy DISMISSES EU Meddling as Budget Row Intensifies

  • ‘We Are a SOVEREIGN State’ Italy DISMISSES EU Meddling as Budget Row Intensifies
    by PAUL WITHERS, https://www.express.co.uk/
    ITALY has emphatically dismissed the EU’s rejection of its controversial budget plans, insisting it will always be a “sovereign state”.

    Last week, the bloc’s finance chief Pierre Moscovici rejected the plans, declaring “public debt is the enemy of the people” as he justified their action against Italy‘s populist government. Brussels claims Rome’s plan present a “serious deviation” from recommendations set by the European Council in July. The Commission asked Italy to submit a revised draft budget for 2019 within three weeks. Brussels bosses argue the proposal poses “serious non-compliance” with the bloc’s tight fiscal policies.

    Italy’s populist government, made up of right-wing Lega and anti-establishment Five Star Movement, are planning to run their budget at 2.4 percent GDP as of 2019. The country’s GDP next year is forecast to be €1.86 trillion, with the planned deficit coming in at €44.23 billion. Last year’ Italy’s budget deficit was €39.691 billion, representing 2.3 percent of GDP of just over €1.716 trillion.

    It has a debt-to-GDP ratio of 130 percent, making it the eurozone‘s second most indebted country behind Greece. If Rome defies its orders from Brussels over its budget plans, officials could begin an “excessive deficit procedure”, leading to sanctions of 0.5 percent of annual GDP or €9billion. The European Union has told Italy their deficit target of 2.4 per cent of GDP is too high and demanded the country make a change before approving their budget.

US Gradually Escalating Threats to China: Scholar

  • PressTV Published on Oct 25, 2018
    US warships in the Taiwan Strait are a part of a “pattern of gradual acceleration and escalation of the threats to China,” American writer and academic James Petras says. On Monday, two US warships sailed through the Taiwan Strait, according to an American military spokesman, amid heightened tensions with China. The USS Curtis Wilbur and USS Antietam carried out a routine transit to prove US commitment “to a free and open Indo-Pacific,” Colonel Rob Manning told reporters at the Pentagon in Washington, DC.

Russia Has Proof US Was Behind Drone Attack on Syria Base

  • PressTV Published on Oct 25, 2018
    Russia says a US spy plane orchestrated a militant drone attack on a Russian airbase in Syria back in January this year. Fomin said the attack was successfully repelled. He added that Russia downed seven of the drones and took control of six others through electronic warfare systems. The Russian minister said the main components of the planes were produced in the West. He also voiced concern that terrorists have been armed with such modern weapons. The Kremlin has also said it’s alarmed that the US plane coordinated the alleged raid. It noted that Russian President Vladimir Putin may raise the issue with his US counterpart Donald Trump in their meeting next month in France.

Galloway: Israel Can’t Keep Millions Caged Forever — Genocide & Ethnic Cleansing by Israel

  • RT America Published on Oct 25, 2018
    Anya Parampil reports on Israeli airstrikes conducted in the Gaza Strip on Thursday, which come after Israel bombed several locations in the besieged strip only one week ago. Former UK MP George Galloway joins Anya to tell us why he believes the population of Gaza may soon break through the border fence which separates them from the rest of the world out of utter desperation.

  • “In 2001, Dr. Ariella Oppenheim, of Hebrew University, a biologist, published the first extensive study of DNA and the origin of the Jews. Her research found that virtually all the Jews came from Khazar blood. Not only that but Oppenheim discovered that the Palestinians—the very people whom the Jews had been persecuting and ejecting from Israel’s land since 1948—had more Israelite blood than did the Jews. In sum, the vast majority of the Jews were not Jews; some of the Palestinians were. Some of the Palestinians even had a DNA chromosome which established that they were “Cohens”—workers at the ancient Temple and synagogues of the Jews.” – Quote

Israeli Warplanes Carry Out Air Attacks in Besieged Gaza

  • Israeli Warplanes Carry Out Air Attacks in Besieged Gaza
    by https://www.aljazeera.com/
    Israeli jets carry out air raids across the besieged territory causing damage to property after rocket hits Israel. Israeli warplanes hit several locations in the Gaza Strip early on Thursday causing extensive damage to property in the besieged territory, according to the Palestinian news agency, WAFA.

    The fighter jets targeted a military compound in the northern Gaza Strip and a training facility and a munitions manufacturing and storage site in the south, the Israeli military said in a statement.

    An Israeli army spokeswoman said the raids were in response to a rocket fired from Gaza which caused no casualties or damage but which evaded Israel’s Iron Dome defence system, triggering an inquiry.

    Hamas, which governs the besieged strip, said there were no casualties in the attacks. It comes a week after Israel carried out 20 air attacks following a rocket attack in the southern Israeli city of Beersheba. Israel also announced temporary suspension of fuel deliveries to Gaza, which has been under an air, water and land blockade imposed by Israel since 2007.

    Crippling blockade
    Hamas and its allies disavowed the recent rocket fire blaming fringe groups bent on sabotaging UN and Egyptian efforts to broker a long-term truce in return for a relaxation of the crippling 11-year blockade of the territory.

    But Israel has vowed repeatedly to hold Hamas responsible for any rocket fire regardless of who launched it. The air attacks come amid months of tension between Israel and Palestinian protesters.

    The protesters have been demanding an end to Israel’s blockade and the right of return to land now inside Israel, from which their families were expelled in the 1948 war that led to the creation of Israel. Palestinians refer to the war and accompanying displacement of roughly 700,000 as the “Nakba”, or “Catastrophe”.

    More than 200 Palestinians have been killed in the territory by Israeli fire since the Great March of Return protests began on March 30. One Israeli soldier has been killed in the border area over the same period. The air force on Wednesday struck a position in Gaza used by protesters to launch incendiary balloons into Israel, the military said.

    Though the protests have been largely peaceful, some protesters have employed fire kites and balloons that burned large areas of Israeli farmland causing hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of crop losses.

Fake Pipe Bomb Hoax Reveals Last-Ditch Desperation of Self-Victimizing Democrats (Who Are Terrified of Losing the Mid-Term Elections)

  • Fake Pipe Bomb Hoax Reveals Last-Ditch Desperation of Self-Victimizing Democrats (Who Are Terrified of Losing the Mid-Term Elections)
    by , https://www.naturalnews.com/
    (Natural News) The “fake pipe bomb” events we all witnessed today are nothing more than Democrats mailing fake pipe bombs to other Democrats.

    This is their last, desperate ploy to try to control the outcome of a mid-term election they’re terrified of losing. And with that loss will come the implosion of the Democrat party, the mass arrests of thousands of deep state traitors, and the exposing of the left-wing media as a lying, anti-American “journo-terrorism” operation that despises truth and democracy.

    The fake pipe bombs sent to the addresses of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, CNN and others are pathetic propaganda attempts based on “bombs” that look like nothing more than road flares duct taped to kitchen timers. They aren’t even good fakes. They’re so obviously not real bombs that much of the internet is mocking the entire affair, pointing out that even Ahmed the Clock Boy built a more sophisticated bomb (oh, but in that case Obama declared it to be a “clock,” not a bomb, remember?).

    “Proper pipe bombs don’t have wires connected to both ends. That’s dumb,” observed Tom Sauer, who describes himself as a former bomb disposal officer. “A proper timer would best be stored inside the pipe, making it fully encapsulated,” he says. “This is nearly the same as a bundle of road flares wrapped together with an old-timey alarm clock ticking away.”

    Clock taped to “pipe bomb” doesn’t even have alarm function
    According to an analysis by #Anon, reported by NeonRevolt, the low-cost clock taped to the fake pipe bombs didn’t even have an alarm function. Via Gab.com/NeonRevolt:

    So, by now you’ve heard that none of the “bombs” delivered to Dems today actually worked.

    Turns out, #Anons were able to locate the actual make and model of the clock taped to one of the bombs.

    Aaaaaaand… 
    It doesn’t even have an alarm function.

    In other words, it can’t count down to anything. It’s literally just to make a “scary-looking” bomb prop. If that doesn’t REEEEEEK of desperation, idk what does.

    Immediate release of the bomb photograph proves it’s all propaganda, not a real forensic investigation
    Even more shockingly, photographs of the bomb devices have been almost immediately released to the public, proving the real purpose is propaganda, not a serious law enforcement investigation. If law enforcement were genuinely concerned about these pipe bombs, they wouldn’t be releasing photos to the public.

    But, alas, here’s the widely-circulated photo depicting one of the fake pipe bombs:

  • Putin, Trump May Discuss Reports of US Plane Leading Attack on Hmeymim Base
    by https://sputniknews.com/
    Russian Deputy Defense Minister Alexander Fomin stated earlier today that Russia’s Hmeymim Air Base in Syria had been subjected to a massive drone attack, with unmanned aerial vehicles piloted by a US Poseidon 8 surveillance aircraft.

    “This is very alarming data, of course, no one here should have any doubts about the conclusions, an appropriate analysis, will be carried out by our military, in fact, even before this publication was carried out. In this case, only the military can provide these details,” Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists.

    Responding to a question about the political consequences of the incident and the possibility of discussing it at the Putin-Trump meeting, which may take place on November 11, the Kremlin spokesman noted that “this cannot be ruled out.”

    The Russian airbase was attacked by 13 combat drones simultaneously, with a US Poseidon 8 aircraft flying over the Mediterranean Sea for about eight hours at that time, according to the Russian Deputy Defense Minister.

Moscow Alarmed that US Spy Plane Coordinated Drone Attack on Russia’s Syria Base

The business of America is war!

  • Moscow Alarmed that US Spy Plane Coordinated Drone Attack on Russia’s Syria Base
    by https://www.rt.com/
    A senior Russian military official has accused the US of being directly involved in a drone attack on the Russian airbase in Syria’s Khmeimim. The aircraft were controlled from a US spy plane nearby, he claimed.

    Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov was speaking about a report made by Russia’s Defense Ministry. It said that the drone attack on the Russian airbase was directed from a US P-8 Poseidon surveillance plane.

    The base located in Latakia governorate has been attacked by primitive drones on numerous occasions. According to Col. Gen. Aleksandr Fomin, Russia’s deputy defense minister, the attack on January 6 was done with direct help from the American military.

    Speaking at a high-profile security forum in China, Fomin said a Boeing P-8 Poseidon was deployed in the area on that date, when 13 drones were launched to attack the Russian base. The US reconnaissance plane took control of the drones once the troops defending the base used electronic warfare to disrupt the control signals for the UAVs.
