    I was expecting a few boring candidate statements of the U.S. Senate - AKA the World's Most Exclusive Club - but, boy, was I wrong. Just take a look at some of these gems.

Holy shit. During the 2007 mess the Libor rate cracked up by 0.4% overnight and THAT was huge.

Am I reading the first graph wrong?  It is not a 3% increase, it is a 3 point increase....which is nearly a 100% increase overnight...right?

If it goes from 3% to 6% that is a 100% increase, but also a 3% increase.

Oh kids, behavioral science tells us it's a 3% "absolute increase", and a 100% "relative increase."

lookin at those charts, seems more like 3.924% move (from around 3.031% to 6.955% is a 3.924% increase), meaning more like 130% increase for overnight, similar for 1-week,
just sayin'

It actually is a 3% increase. Which also is nearly a 100% increase.

if it is both 3% and 100%, and both are
increases, what is the down side? ( don't
actually try to answer that ).*
also, is a 3% and a 100% increase the same
as 103 "fold" increase? ( same ).*
also, does this development mean that some one,
somewhere, just made enough money to buy a country
and all the people in it? ( same )*.

this might have to do with it?
check this.
"The latest Treasury International Capital (TIC) report shows that net inflows into Treasuries increased for the month of April, mainly due to foreign government purchases. So when can we expect all of those "private accounts" to get with the program?

"Outside of equities, official accounts, which include foreign central banks, were the biggest buyers in the month with net inflow into Treasuries of $24.4 billion vs a net outflow from private accounts of $1.0 billion.;

A look at Treasury holdings by nations shows a $7.6 billion rise in mainland China, which is also a positive, to $1.15 trillion and a small decline in Japan to $906.9 billion. UK-based accounts, which are the third largest holders of US Treasuries, shows a $7.8 billion increase to $333.0 billion."

Well, with the rapidly progressing financial troubles of Europe and Japan, I suspect it will not be very long from now. In the meantime, as discussed in Bailing Out the Thimble with the Titanic, the Fed can continue to exert some influence over longer-term rates by selling insurance (IR swaps) on Treasury bonds through primary dealer banks, without any explicit monetization or anyone being the wiser (major investors). Eventually, the time will come when some form of QE3 is necessary, but that time will likely be sometime next year after asset prices have come down significantly. As for Gross, well, I still expect that financial shark to be well-positioned for the long-bond rally when it occurs, and in no small part because of his immensely pubic fear-mongering tactics."

It is actually hints like this, while the idiots as Marketwatch and on CNBS go on talking about green shoots, that let those who pay a little attention to get short and sit back a little bit until it's impossible to not see the issues at hand.  Get short and wait.

This is all pre-programmed window dressing to otherwise pare down the number of still standing banks - the Alpha Banks. 

More banking chaos means fewer TBTF and thus guranteed survival for those at the center of this global assault on the human spirit.

The race is on to make it to the Basel 3 finish line.

Think about it...

Goldman was at the center of the whole mess.  They had people in the Treasury Department, they were called before Congress.  We know the sins of Goldman!  Yeah, that's the ticket...

We demand a public trial!  The SEC has got the beef!

Live!  On TV!  The Trial of the Century!

There's Lord Blankfein doing his best Ollie North, going, "I do not recall that, Mr. Chairman.  I'll have my people..."

Oh, you know the rest.

It was set up this way...
