Ramblings x1



When my workload got too busy to enable blogging, I thought: Upon my return, I will put some posts relating to the issues that had transpired during my absence.


But too many significant things have happened to allow for that. I still had some outstanding commentaries to give on the Health and Safety case of Jean Charles deMenezes’ (JCdM) cold blooded and downright wicked slaughter.


Now there’s been another legal episode, which concluded last week – the coroners “inquest” an act of justice perversion due to the “Coroner”, Michael Wright, filtering the inquests verdict, condoning and bleached over the very illegal and morally repugnant slaughter of an innocent man. The implications of the whitewash are too voluminous for an individual alone to adequately discuss.


I also knew that during my absence the slide towards fascism would continue unabated. More Afghani’s would be slaughtered as would more Iraqi’s, Pakistanis and Somalis, the economic scam would widen and the British people would generally not care, or id they did care they wouldn’t do anything to try and get it to stop.


Interestingly, a scenario similar to what I envisaged earlier (see “Outrageously stupid” – search for Board member 1) about a scam that could be pulled off deliberately ruining ones company to reap greater rewards via credit default swaps may well have transpired with the $50bln “fraud” that was announced the other day. Being forced to live with the conspiracy 24/7, I more than half suspect it the collapse was engineered, and a number of people have quietly done rather well out it.


The oxymoronic “credit crunch” breaks sets new boundaries every day it seems. And on behalf of those 3 billion –  half the planets population – whose lives were a nightmare when the other half were living it up when the “the global economy” I raise my middle finger in your direction.


Actually, it’s incorrect to say it’s on behalf of the 3 billion poor people that I  do such a thing, because such an act is exactly the thing the ‘wealthers’ would do the ‘poorers’ and not the other way around. The people at the bottom don’t chase wealth at the expense of others. No. They chase wealth in order not to starve to death!


Then you look at the billions of dollars, euros, yen, and pounds spent rescuing gambling dens and not a penny for those on deaths door; so hungry they eat discarded food in garbage cans – that is, if they are lucky enough to have that opportunity, then you should feel outraged.


And of course On Sunday, we have the heroic shoe thrower Muntadar al-Zeidi who has invigorated me. One internet commentator said ‘it’s telling of the times when a shoe thrower is a hero’. The point was understandable, but seems to have overlooked that it was a heroic act, for the poor man knew he was going to tortured and possibly murdered for resisting the slime that killed millions of his compatriots. All this while the hypocrites eased into positions of power in Baghdad – the Al Maliki regime, exhibited concern for the bumbling Jackass of a President George ‘dubya’ Bush while the thugs kicked Al-Zaidi in the face and ribs, salivating at the chance to drilling holes into his body later.


Any contribution me or my blog makes to stopping the unfurling nightmare gripping the wealthy occidental nations of this world (nations in which grant mammoth degrees of power to the eugenic and wickedly oppressive Zionist elements within) are immeasurably small. Watching the merry-go-round of tyranny continuing its path while blogging, and now, when taking a break from it, has made me wonder should I bother. If I alone stopped expressing my outrage it couldn’t make any difference; I know that and I don’t’ pretend otherwise, however, if everyone who vehemently opposes the pervasive rot became silent then boy, if you thought we were in trouble now, you would probably look back on these times as a veritable golden age.


For that main reason, I decided, when embarking upon my blog-break, that I must return even if my activities prove futile.


I simply could not bear to say “nothing” in response to a question  asking me “What did you to try and prevent this from happening?” as a child weeps over the bodies of his parents, merciless slaughtered, politically assassinated because they dared to think differently and wouldn’t conform.


And neither should you.

The gambling continues…

Update: Newsnight might have underestimated the scale of the derivatives scam: “Derivatives Trade Soars To Record $681Trillionwrites Michael Shedlock, December 11, 2007, quoting a bloomberg published report  Bank for International Settlements [BIS]

Due to numerous distractions, it’s take a couple of days to write this. If what I say here is old hat then sorry.

Still from Newsnight (BBC2)’s program on Credit
Default Swaps (see refs below and please watch Alez Ritsons
excellent and worrying report on the matter) showing the
astounding level of these corrupt derivatives present in the
market’ today. Source reads: ISDA – see later.

I’ve been a wee bit angry of late about all this HIDEOUS FRAUD that’s been going on in the financial ‘markets’. In ye olde times, a market was a place where principally goods (but also some services) could be bought and sold. A market today is just an impression of Ladbrooks.

One of the things get really got my goat recently is the mantra that: “We have to rescue these banks to be done to stave off collapse” – ‘Collaspe of what’ I ask? Are you referring to the collapse of the financial fraud mechanisms? Mechanisms by their very nature made us end up here??? We need to preserve that?????? Is it so crazy to suggest we shouldn’t preserve that? Let the scummy banks collapse. Screw them! Let anyone whose mortgage is with a bank that’s gonna die, keep their house, teach the pigging banks a lesson.


Why not punish these frigging banks for the crap they have done, are doing and will do in the future? And for those who engaged in speculation, take back their corrupt wealth. Leave them with enough savings to match the national average and tell them to get the hell out of our eyescans. Anyone who dealt with speculation w.r.t. consumables/food, do the same to them, but sling their arses into the countryside to start producing food rather than destroying it.

liquification injections.

If the ECB, Fed, CBJ and other central banks can coordinate to (get this…)inject liquidity” then surely they can coordinate a global purge of speculators. But to move on, where did all this ‘liquidity’ come from and what exactly is it made of? –beware of what your told– Pure (non-financial) speculation here, but is it likely all this ‘liquidity’ (assuming it was cash) was piled high in the corner of some kind of vault, doing nothing, just waiting for something like this to happen which amounts to the tune of hundreds of billions? No, of course not. That is most unlikely indeed. What is likely is that what we see now with the bailout/injection-central-bank-mechanism, it’s just the latest (and probably the last) bubble.

The bubble is the corporealization by utter pretencethat everything is all right. Yip, it’s YET ANOTHER CONFIDENCE SCAM, like all the financial scams before it. You see, if the public perception is that everything OK, people won’t withdraw their money and won’t sell their shares. Should TPTB manage to succeed they just might get away with it. I mean who’s to know? if this injection is genuine or not? The Bush, Paulson, Bernake,  Brown and Darling brigade are just like the orchestra and the officer class on the Titanic. They play the dulcet tones of firm action to try and make the passengers think everything’s OK while they go around proclaiming it’s unsinkable.


What we do know is that this capitalism crap has proved to be a misery on the world. It’s something that only benefits a few who lets be honest, couldn’t give a rats gonad about you, your family or you life in general.

Lets take a quick look: Japans economy has been pants for ages. It offers zero (or near zero) interest rates. It is said large amounts of Yen have been borrowed to purchase tangible profitable assets overseas making for nice little earners. Now we being ‘told’ (be careful!) the ‘market’ is now more liquid and banks can start lending to another again… {remember: so they can continue to do exactly the same crap as they did before}.

Germany’s economy’s been poor for while, The UK’s isn’t go great and the US is… well lets just say the Iraqi resistance have something else to cheer about.

Although the Fed is a private bank and the BoE pretends hard not to be, why would they be willing to shove their private wealth into bolstering the financial system we know is is a heap if crap? It’s pretty likely it’s going ot be for one reason and one reason only – that is because it’s in their interests to do so. That interest will be to preserve their wealth and status an/or offer the chance of enhancing those privileged positions. They aren’t doing it for our benefit at all, other than to stave off any revolt by the ordinary class, but that’s as likely to happen as Tony bLiar telling the truth. Revolution is still a long, LONG way off, so we are looking at motives of financial furtherance here, and in the same way it was us who helped them achieve that status, sadly it will be us once more who help them maintain and strengthen that position in the coming years.

As for the banks and the gambling pits or Investment houses as they call themselves, portraying a venir of respectability, their intertwined packages of bets and gambles, unpacked, rearranged repackaged bets are set to be expunged. Resetting the mileometer so to speak. Basically all the dirty deals are washed clean and will be forgotten about. There is no way (in effect) buying all this bad debt will ever pay off.

AIG was kept afloat because of it’s it is a great money collector selling basically nothing (insurance it cannot assure) and can suck in peoples money for nothing in return. Insurance and for the great unwashed is a great way to take their money off them, especially when in countries like the UK it is illegal not to have some forms of insurance. And you can bet in the near-future, if any claims get to big, the ravenous wolverine lawyers will be dispatched to deal with any claimants should they be unable to find some clause (font size 3) in their small print, or failing that just declare themselves bankrupt (see financial ‘product’ innovation below)

Duckman Max tells it how it is. US $ is worth bananas!
Max I love you (In a heterosexual matey kinda way)


Financial ‘product’ innovation:

Robert Pickel, CEO International Swaps and Derivatives Association (ISDA), in Interview on Newsnight about regulation[see link below], calls credit default swaps ‘products’ and says doesn’t want regulation because there are “sufficient regulations in place.” He continues:

The unregulated status is something we advocate as an organization, is that there are sufficient protections [he means regulation] in place and that another layer of regulation will add cost and reduce innovation [!!!] in the market place, and that’s not a good thing

– What? You don’t agree? You mean the 110,000 jobs to go at AIG’s UK arm is more important than investment brokers? What are you??? Bonkers or something? {sarcasm}

Board member 1: I want to buy this company that shows great potential for profitability.
BM2: But the cost of the loan we’d need to take on will bear heavily on our companies accounts. We many not be able to afford it.
BM1: It doesn’t matter. Look. The banks are desperately short of cash right now. They’d welcome any opportunity to make some money quickly. The published profits of the company we want to buy will be a very persuasive argument to the bank that we will be able to pay it off. If they are still worried, tell them we have a way of guaranteeing the loan. We take out a credit default swap policy on out loan and we will also sell one to the bank, the costs of which are Incorporated into the primary capital. Worst comes to worst, and our company struggles to pay, we either call in the swap and the bank can do so too nobody looses, and we can also cash in our personal CDS’s too. Just make sure you use your anonymous off-shores to do that. We don’t want the taxman sniffing his nose around. Not only that, we can derivatize the aquisition so if the purchase is profitable for our company, we win yet again.
All Board members: *collectively*   WOW !


Financial lobboxery on the MSM

Yesterday (Thursday) (or was it Friday? all my days are getting mixed up – no sleep you see), the miserable amateurish coverage of what’s happening on BBC World showed an interview with that most hickory of knobs, Alistair Darling, said something like…

We will act to preserve stability in a period of turmoil.” – WHAT??? Is he taking the piss? preserve stability in a period of turmoil. Which of course the fawning BBC let go into across the airwaves completely unchallenged as it almost always does.

The ‘pound-a-punnet pundits’ on the BBC were wheeled on in familiar style to treat us with yet more monstrously moronic manufactured mucal musings about the whole affair, explaining what had happened without actually explaining anything, all the time given free ride to spouse their drivel.

And that BBC presenter who was alongside Johnathan Charles. Geeezzz! She was like a fish out water (or a bank out of credit). She stuttered and stumbled to say anything, covering up her ignorance by nodding her head sporadically, gesticulating and saying ‘yes’ a lot.

For heavens sake.

It’s all pants.

When (if) the dust settles, There will be no change in the financial system. If capitalism is to be adhered to, Banks, inveztment houzez and members of the public will once again spend time and effort to look for the next scam that will earn them money, spending little or no time to really ask themselves who pays, not that it would have much effect on many who upon studying it, would realise engaging in such practices is essentially what keeps 3billion people on $2 or less a day.

My blood was boiling the other day and managed to stop me falling asleep in the middle of work, (it’s still pretty warm today) and I declared I was glad in a way I am glad that the fingers of some of the small fry would be burnt as their unthinking actions in depositing money in high return schemes end up in these scams, but I’m not holier than thou. I too have drunken from the poisoned chalice, as do those close to me, but as I’ve learned exactly what this ubiquitous global financial fraud does, I am engaged in detaching myself from it. I urge you all to do the same.

God bless.



Today Dateline London (Saturday BBC World) was on (Gavin Estler). 2 talking heads with him was Michael White of the Guardian and Daniel Hertzberg of the WSJ.

Estler said in regards to Bush’s spending on Fmay, Fmac and AIGsomething like "You can get away with it because of the war [the War OF Terror, War against Iraq and War against Afghanistan] and security" – WHAT? Who the hell mentioned that. The marraige of what the BBC tells us (therefore lobbox) are necessary bailouts is somehow linked to the war effort. Ester lets rotspeil run away with him at times (00:00 to 23:27).

Michael White amusingly said “Rosevelt in the 1930’s taking on Wall St, [Actually Michael, I think it was the FED] drove the money changers out of the temple on Friday, but they were back again monday morning”. Not so amusingly White said moments later “Gordon Brown stopped the poor getting worse, all the data backs it up” – What??? I hope Mr. Stains gets his old rival on that one, although Stains displays exactly the kind of crap I really dislike ate amongst the wheeling-dealing public, that is practically bragging about his activities in the market. I’ve heard a number of other tales of how economic bravado selling their shares and so on while the going was good, as if when the good times were on, what they were doing was ok, good even, displaying a respectible financial acumen. All without consequence of course. None of their money supplied the investment houses did it?

Hertzberg said “They are making it up as they go along” – that pleased me. Someone identifying the nonsensical bumpf, but then made me angry again when he said “How do we know when it gets better? When banks start lending to each other” – AAAGH! NOOO A return to the top of the maneur heap isn’t the way. That tired expression is just what the donkey has brayed out. Don’t follow the same rubbish in financial pundity. Use your frikken brains!

Is there nobody left sane? Isn’t there someone who is actually learning from all this?

Not that there’s a shortage of stuff to read on this topic, but here’s a few refernces and articles:
