Billions Are Shorting The Market In Preparation For The Financial Apocalypse

  • Published on May 19, 2017
    IMF & Eurozone are threatening to walk away from Greece because they want Greece to implement more austerity. UBS hints of massive auto lending fraud, which mimics the housing market fraud back in 2008. Fed’s Bullard says they just triggered the collapse of the economy and now they might lower rates. George Soros is shorting the market and is hoping to use a financial apocalypse to bring down Trump. What this says is that he already knows the market is coming down and the central bankers are crashing the system.

‘Macron will DESTROY the EU’ Top Expert Says Federalist Drive will Push Bloc Over the Edge

  • ‘Macron will DESTROY the EU’ Top Expert Says Federalist Drive will Push Bloc Over the Edge
    by NICK GUTTERIDGE, BRUSSELS CORRESPONDENT, http://www.express.co.uk/
    EMMANUEL Macron’s victory in the French election will one day be seen as the final nail in the EU’s coffin with his openly federalist agenda set to guide the bloc to destruction, a leading academic has predicted.

    Amitai Etzioni, one of America’s leading thinkers, said the new president’s desire to centralise ever more power in Brussels will cause a revolt amongst European citizens. The German-born professor dismissed the notion of a ‘European identity’ as a myth and said the continent is really populated by patriotic people who are fiercely loyal to their own countries.

    As a result, he predicted hundreds of millions of voters will refuse to accept the pooling of further power in the hands of eurocrats as proposed by Mr Macron and German leader Angela Merkel. 

    Professor Etzioni, widely regarded as the founder of the communitarian branch of sociology, said the bloc will fail because “millions are willing to die for their country, but no one is willing to die of the EU”.

    His remarks come as EU defence ministers meet today to thrash out the next step towards a European army, with eurocrats expecting deeply eurosceptic France to take the lead.

    Mr Macron has put forward ambitious plans to deepen integration of the core eurozone countries including setting up an EU finance ministry to administer a common budget for the continent.

Deutsche Bank Sued For Running An “International Criminal Organization” In Italian Court

  • Deutsche Bank Sued For Running An “International Criminal Organization” In Italian Court
    by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com/
    Having been accused, and found guilty, of rigging and manipulating virtually every possible asset class, perhaps it was inevitable that Deutsche Bank, currently on trial in Milan for helping Banca Monte dei Paschi conceal losses (as first reported last October in “Deutsche Bank Charged By Italy For Market Manipulation, Creating False Accounts“) is now facing accusations that it was actually running an international criminal organization at the time.

    In the closely watched lawsuit, prosecutors used internal Deutsche Bank documents and emails to persuade a three-judge panel to rule that there were additional, aggravating circumstances to the charges the German lender already faces related to various derivatives transactions. As Bloomberg reported overnight, the material included a London trader’s “well done!” message to a banker who is now on trial.

    The reason why prosecutors are seeking expanded charges against the German banking giants is that by allowing prosecutors to argue that the bank’s market manipulation crimes were committed by an organization operating in several countries would lead to higher penalties if they win a conviction.

Brazilian Bloodbath: Currency Halted, Futures Crash, Bonds Tumble Most On Record

  • Brazilian Bloodbath: Currency Halted, Futures Crash, Bonds Tumble Most On Record
    by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com
    As first reported last night, Brazil has plunged back into yet another political crisis less than a year after the impeachment of Dilma Rouseff, when a report in Brazil’s O Globo newspaper revealed that President Michel Temer was involved in an “hush money” cover-up scheme involving the jailed former speaker of the lower house of Congress, Eduardo Cunha, who was the mastermind behind the impeachment of Rouseff.

    Already an impeachment request against Temer has been filed by the opposition, although it was unclear who would replace him or what the process would look like. If Temer resigns or is impeached, Congress would elect an interim president until the next scheduled vote in October of 2018. An early election could only be held with a constitutional amendment approved by lawmakers.

Gregory Mannarino: They Want to Destroy Trump & America

  • Gregory Mannarino: They Want to Destroy Trump & America
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com
    Analyst/trader Gregory Mannarino says America is in conflict with itself. Mannarino explains, “We have a President who gets it. He’s obviously not a socialist, and there is no doubt this man has the back of America. . . . There is a literal war going on right now between political parties here. This is a deliberate effort by some to destabilize our country, to bring America to its knees from the inside. They want to basically throw this country into some kind of third world situation, and I don’t think it’s going to happen. I think there are too many people on the opposite side of this trade that want to see America succeed.”


    Mannarino says that what is being done to Trump is really just the tip of the iceberg. Mannarino contends, “It’s much bigger than Trump. These people don’t just want to destroy this President, they want to subvert and destroy this country, our belief system and our values. This is what they want to do. The question is are we going to allow these people to succeed? That’s really the issue, and I don’t think so. I think there are enough people here, and I think it is most of your audience who understands what’s going on. This is not a battle against the President. This is a battle against our country and our citizens. This is much bigger than an attack on the President.”

Financial Weapons Of Mass Destruction: The Top 25 U.S. Banks Have 222 Trillion Dollars Of Exposure To Derivatives

  • Financial Weapons Of Mass Destruction: The Top 25 U.S. Banks Have 222 Trillion Dollars Of Exposure To Derivatives
    by Michael Snyder, http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/
    The recklessness of the “too big to fail” banks almost doomed them the last time around, but apparently they still haven’t learned from their past mistakes.  Today, the top 25 U.S. banks have 222 trillion dollars of exposure to derivatives.  In other words, the exposure that these banks have to derivatives contracts is approximately equivalent to the gross domestic product of the United States times twelve.  As long as stock prices continue to rise and the U.S. economy stays fairly stable, these extremely risky financial weapons of mass destruction will probably not take down our entire financial system.  But someday another major crisis will inevitably happen, and when that day arrives the devastation that these financial instruments will cause will be absolutely unprecedented.

    During the great financial crisis of 2008, derivatives played a starring role, and U.S. taxpayers were forced to step in and bail out companies such as AIG that were on the verge of collapse because the risks that they took were just too great.

    But now it is happening again, and nobody is really talking very much about it.  In a desperate search for higher profits, all of the “too big to fail” banks are gambling like crazy, and at some point a lot of these bets are going to go really bad.  The following numbers regarding exposure to derivatives contracts come directly from the OCC’s most recent quarterly report (see Table 2), and as you can see the level of recklessness that we are currently witnessing is more than just a little bit alarming…

Update on BREXIT: EU Politicians Are In Panic Mode

  • Update on BREXIT: EU Politicians Are In Panic Mode
    by ALASDAIR MACLEOD MAY 11, 2017, https://wealth.goldmoney.com/
    This article looks at the background to Brexit negotiations and concludes that Britain is negotiating from a position of strength, while the EU is increasingly in a position of financial difficulty. Not only will the European Commission be forced to scale back its spending and redistribution of resources, but the euro project is threatened by capital flight between member states, despite the early signs of economic recovery which should be restoring market confidence. Politicking aside, pressure is mounting on the EU to defuse the disruption of Brexit by agreeing to a mutually beneficial deal as soon as possible.


    EU finances are getting desperate
    The EU cannot afford to prevaricate over Brexit because a bad Brexit risks causing it immeasurable harm. Not only does big business in Europe want a Britain with which it can freely trade, but confidence in the European Project is rapidly diminishing. The EU is a mega-state that is fading, and no one knows how to ensure its survival. Inevitably, the failings of the EU are catching up with it, and Britain’s leaving exposes the financial consequences of decades of bad management, capital destruction through wasteful redistribution and the lack of any contingency planning.


    Britain’s €8bn annual contribution to the EU budget is almost the same as the cost of administering the whole Brussels establishment, so Brexit will create a budget shortfall that is almost total, which Brussels will have to make up from the remaining members. Inevitably, some of the redistribution to Brussel’s pet projects will end up being cut as well. It is for this reason that the Brussels politicians hope for a capital payment from Britain.

    The Commission also has a commitment to redistribute member funds estimated at €238bn. It must have assumed prior to last year’s referendum that Britain would vote to remain and pay its share. Instead, it voted for Brexit, and the Commission will have to find the money from a capital contribution either from Britain, somewhere else, or cancel some of the projects. With these problems, the Commission is in a difficult position, wrong-footed by Brexit. And when Theresa May says no deal is better than a bad deal and means it, it really could mean an end to Brussels as we know it.

China Capitulates: Injects $25 Billion Into Liquidity-Starved Banks To “Appease Investors”

  • China Capitulates: Injects $25 Billion Into Liquidity-Starved Banks To “Appease Investors”
    by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com, 16 May 2017
    Is China’s push to deleverage its financial system over?
    That is the question following last night’s dramatic reversal in recent PBOC liquidity moves, when after weeks of mostly draining liquidity, the central bank injected a whopping 170 billion yuan (net of maturities), or $24.7 billion, the biggest one-day cash injection into the country’s financial markets (and contracting shadow banking system as first reported here last week, when we showed the first drop in China Entrusted Loans in a decade) in four months. The surprising move was “a fresh sign that Beijing is trying to mitigate the damage to investor confidence inflicted by its recent campaign to tamp down speculation fueled by excessive borrowing” according to the WSJ.

    Today’s injection was the the largest since just before the Lunar New Year holiday in January, when Chinese banks traditionally stock up on liquidity.

    The Greatest Bull Market In Gold
    Stephen Leeb:  “If you’re a gold investor fretting at the metal’s seeming drowsiness, don’t worry. A lot has been happening lately that brings us closer to the launch of a great bull market in gold that will be unmatched in its sweep and longevity. The biggest mistake you can make now would be to get shaken out of your gold (and silver) positions if gold continues to tread water or possibly even dips below $1,200. The second-biggest mistake would be to not take advantage of near-term weakness to add to your holdings…
