Zero Hedge: Tensions were already running high between Tehran and Washington in the wake of Iran’s move to test-fire a next generation surface-to-surface ballistic missile with the range to hit Israel.

And then the IRGC conducted a live-fire rocket test within 1,500 yards of a US aircraft carrier in the Strait of Hormuz.

Now, in a further escalation, Iran has reportedly seized two US Navy ships.

  • 2 U.S. NAVY BOATS IN IRANIAN CUSTODY, PENTAGON SAYS: AP
  • RHODES SAYS U.S. WORKING ON RETURN OF CREW
  • RHODES SAYS U.S. WORKING TO RESOLV

But nobody panic, because Iran has promised to return the crew “promptly” and as CNN adds, according to Iran the sailors are safe”

Zero Hedge: “No volume, no problem…Buy stocks with both hands and feet…

Leaving Rick Santelli almost speechless: “I don’t know how they do it? Plunge Protection Team? Abenomics? Japanese buying futures? No matter what The Dow will not be allowed to end the year in the red…”

Opinion: Key word allowed. News flash, the markets are being manipulated and thankfully, to the upside, for now.

The plunge protection team was created to shore up markets. To buy when everyone is selling and vise versa.

The team consists of the Secretary of the Treasury, the Chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve, the Chairman of the SEC and the Chairman of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission.

The team will always win – like the house in a casino.

Moral of the story, don’t fight the team.

FDA overturns 30-year ban on blood donations by gay men

People line up to give blood at a mobile donation station set up following the shooting at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon, United States, October 2, 2015. Chris Harper-Mercer, the man killed by police on Thursday after he fatally shot nine people at the southern Oregon community college was a shy, awkward 26-year-old fascinated with shootings, according to neighbors, a person who knew him, news reports and his own social media postings.

OANN: “The United States government on Monday overturned its 30-year ban on blood donations by gay men, saying they can now donate 12 months after their last sexual contact with another man.

The Food and Drug Administration said its decision to reverse the policy was based on an examination of the latest science which shows that an indefinite ban is not necessary to prevent transmission of HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.

The FDA said its policies have helped reduce HIV transmission rates from blood transfusions from 1 in 2,500 to 1 in 1.47 million.”

Opinion: Suppose this bowl of M&M’s had 1,470,000 candies, and further suppose your friendly, government, bean counter assured you that only 1 had the AIDS virus. How many would you choose to eat?

Political correctness can be deadly.
