Greek Ministry of Finance Is Now Burning

Tyler Durden's picture


Update: It appears the blaze has been put out for now.

All in a day's work for a country whose people have to carry the fat kleptofascists on their backs. Next up: all other institutional buildings. And yes, this is starting to look like May 6. In the meantime, this should be good for another 100 pips in the EURUSD.

Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan have each insured this property, naming themselves (and some members of the Federal Reserve) as beneficiaries, for 25x its value.

They also have CDS with AIG, which will now require AIG to provide a taxpayer extracted and large lump sum payment to Lloyd & Jamie.

(Rumor has it that Jamie and Lloyd were just in that building the other day on official 'business,' and that they both disappeared for a 30 minutes or so...hmmm)

STFU and educate yourself before spewing myths.

(Hint: The average retirement age for the greeks is....... 61. And anyways.... in an ideal world people should actually be able to retire whenever they want, as long as they are satisfied with getting back exactly what they put in.)

Who cares anyway? Germany is in need of high skilled workers and we need the young Greek generation. They will leave their country out of desperation and move to (North) European countries like Holland, Sweden, Germany and so forth. Having said that, I don't think they will like that. In case of Germany they won't earn much more (maybe a +400 EUR).

Greek people are already one of the biggest migrant groups in Germany and although people here are tired of the Greek drama show, they will welcome skilled people that want to work.

Well, the sell orders filled my screens on that dumb ass lift in the Euro just I am going to have to respectfully disagree with your conclusion.

The very fact that the S&P has traveled as far as it has in the last 2.3 sessions, and on zero volume again, is most of what you need to know.  But specifically, that breach of 1.44 on the EUR/USD brought out the red side of the book.

You forget infowars as well.  At first I noticed a huge difference in the crowd and was put off by that, however upon contemplation, don't we really want to wake more people up?  So therefore, all should be welcome, it is our job to educate them and provide links to other sites and reading material.  Lord knows this site and it's followers have educated me beyond words.  I have been here since the days of blog.  Welcome all soak this up and learn all you can from the rest.  Welcome, welcome, welcome.  Please choose to donate to keep the site alive.  Perhaps if more freeloaders donated, Tyler could turn off the google ads.

Actually all I needed to do was read the NIST report to find out this was in fact what happened. They proved it by using black box computer models. If NIST says it is true who am I to doubt them. They even admitted nearly 3 seconds of free fall.

So now whenever I see a structural steel building on fire I am deeply worried of imminent collapse. You should be as well.

Yes, Yes.  People confused by the "market" being up today need only glance at their calenders again and realize there is the rest of this session and one more session tommorrow for EOQ window dressing.

Then of course, we head into the long holiday weekend with zero market action on Friday because all of the insiders have been dumping their shares for months on end as Tyler regularly reports.

I'm definitely heading out into the country this weekend.  No telling what kind of bullshit false flag is coming over the 4th of July weekend--an attack on the sheeples' biggest holiday of nationalistic pride will set them right up for the next phase of the jackboot state clampdown and one good final shearing.

Looks like the petulant junker is out for 100% junks today. Too funny. Maybe it would be easier if s/he just changed his/her diaper.

On the bright side, maybe that means at least one person is actually reading the posts.........or not.

The indignants are hiding out. Later they'll come back to syntagma and hold a concert.  KUMBAYA MY LORD KUMBAYA! We'll stay here all summer, we can't go on vacation anyway. Might as well hook up and get laid.

This is highly bullish.

The more of Greece that is destroyed, the larger the Keynesian rebuilding project.

The War for Peace is never over.  All it would take is to attribute the chaos to "socialists" and 'Merkans will pledge allegiance to the forces of responsible order.

There is no chance these people are going to sit there and sacrifice to banking cartels simply because of captured politicians hold a vote that clearly does not have their interests at hand all the while not a single haircut is taken on senior bondholders. This nonsense is too transparent at this time thanks largely to independent media. 

     Over time they will become more organized, better equipped, formulate strategy and begin to arm themselves and the moment the first police office is killed the rest will simply say, "Fuck this.. I am not leaving my family fatherless so a bunch of bankers can remain solvent". I am sure 70% of these police officers know that they are next on the block of cuts.
