UK Growth or 'triple dip'?

The Q3 figure is so strong that it will lead to a downward rebound in Q4. The words 'triple dip' are now being bandied around.

There is also the interpretation that the London Olympics skewed the figures, along with an extra public holiday. (I seem to remember last year's extra public holiday was thought to have depressed output.)

"The allegations in the complaint really need no description from us,” FBI acting assistant director Mary Galligan said. “They speak for themselves".

The FBI first learned of Valle's plan last month when he discussed it on emails and instant messages from his home computer, according to police documents.

A search of his computer allegedly revealed files kept on at least 100 women, all including their names and pictures, and often containing personal details such as their addresses.

Valle is believed to have used law enforcement databases to gather his list of potential victims.

Keeping it classy, Mr President: Obama describes Romney as 'a bulls***ter'

The extraordinary comment - most American newspapers decline even to print such a word - came at the end of an interview with 'Rolling Stone' in which Obama was asked possibly the softest softball question ever lobbed at him.

As he left the Oval Office, Eric Bates, executive editor of 'Rolling Stone', told Obama that he had asked his six-year-old if there was anything she wanted him to say to the president and she had responded: 'Tell him: You can do it.'

According to Bates, Obama grinned and said: 'You know, kids have good instincts. They look at the other guy and say, "Well, that's a bullshitter, I can tell."'

The human rights group has urged European Union governments to protect the right to peaceful protest during the eurozone crisis.

It said people rallying against government spending cuts, tax rises and job losses in countries hit by the crisis had sometimes been seriously injured by police or had had medical treatment withheld.

"People demonstrating peacefully in EU countries have been beaten, kicked, shot at and wounded with rubber bullets and sprayed with tear gas," Amnesty said.

The world cried out against such actions in the middle east, but nothing is being said when it happens in our own front yard..........We promote democracy abroad or pretend to anyway so that our leaders can get rid of our Democracy...oh wait we lost it already.

Suspected Pirates' Gun Battle With Nato Boat

A Nato patrol team exchanges fire with a suspected pirate vessel in a shipping lane off the coast of Somalia.

The HNLMS Rotterdam was carrying out routine patrols when it spotted a fishing vessel close to the Somali shoreline.

Because the boats are often used as "mother ships" for pirate crews, a boarding team was sent out to inspect it.

However the Dutch sailors were fired on from the shoreline, and by people on board the vessel.

Executive Order 13233 Barack Obama

Executive Order 13233 Barack Obama completely revoked it by Executive Order 13489 on

Why was it so urgent that on his first day as president, he found it necessary to sign an Executive Order concerning presidential "documentary materials?"

Obama essentially restored the wording of Executive Order 12667, by repeating most of the text of that order with minor changes. One notable change is that vice presidential records are explicitly covered by his new order.

Obama the Muslim: Ploy to Cover-up Years of US-Al Qaeda Support''

October 24, 2012 - Neo-Conservative Frank Gaffney thinks you are stupid. After plotting for the better part of a decade, arming Al Qaeda across the Arab World in a documented conspiracy to use the notorious terror group as a proxy against Lebanon, Syria, and Iran, Gaffney and his colleagues are attempting to jettison responsibility and all the blunders that have come with the plot, on US President Barack Obama. President Obama for his part, faithfully and knowingly carried out this strategy, "heeding" signed letters sent to him from Gaffney's warmongering circle, imploring him to not only support terrorists in Libya and Syria, but to do so more overtly.

Gaffney, in a Washington Times article titled, "GAFFNEY: The real reason behind Benghazigate: Was Obama gun-walking arms to jihadists?" Gaffney answers the question by stating correctly, "yes." What Gaffney doesn't tell readers is that the plan to arm these terrorists and array them against Syria was a plan set into motion, not by Obama the alleged "crypto-Muslim," but in 2007 during the Bush administration.

John Williams: ''Fed Money Printing will Trigger a Sell-Off Providing Start''

Could The Central Bank Vaults Be Empty?

Is it possible that the vaults of the world’s central banks, believed to be stacked with gold bullion, are really empty? Is all the gold actually there?

Something about the numbers doesn’t seem to add up.

The U.K. has led the pack, up 362%, followed by the United States, which is up 223% — even before QE III. China is printing money as well, up 151% during the period, the European Central Bank, 146%, and Japan, 83%.

That’s a lot of money-printing.

China knows that gold is rigged

A cable from the U.S. embassy in Beijing on April 28, 2009 , brought to light by wikileaks, stated the following in this regard: "According to China's National Foreign Exchanges Administration China's gold reserves have recently increased. The U.S. and Europe have always suppressed the rising price of gold. They intend to weaken gold's function as an international reserve currency. They don't want to see other countries turning to gold reserves instead of the U.S. dollar or euro. Therefore, suppressing the price of gold is very beneficial for the U.S. in maintaining the U.S. dollar's role as the international reserve currency. China's increased gold reserves will thus act as a model and lead other countries toward reserving more gold. Large gold reserves are also beneficial in promoting the internationalization of the RMB.

It should come as little surprise then that recently China has been buying gold like there is no tomorrow.
