Two Distractions With One DSK

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Who needs birds and stones when you have an insolvent fiat-based world and a IMF head fond of single (and/or) double-dipping. If anyone is still confused about the ritual sacrifice of the head of the world's bailout organization (if only on paper), here is Bill Buckler explaining how the immaculate timing of DSK's being dragged out of a plane and made into a full blown media farce achieved two very substantial targets: "First, it removes the “international” aspect of the moves the EU is
making to damp down the ongoing Greek (and others) debt crisis. That
turns the “sovereign debt crisis” into a strictly European problem and
makes sure the headlines keep coming. Second, the stoush of who the next
IMF head will be is now predicted to last until (at least) June 30.
This takes the spotlight off the winding down of the Fed’s QE2, which is
scheduled to end on - that’s right - June 30.
" David Copperfield would be so proud...

From William Buckler's latest edition of The Privateer:

Osama Bin Laden was simply “taken out” by US armed forces. That’s the official line anyway. IMF head Dominique Strauss-Kahn did not suffer so terminal a fate. He was simply stung, hauled off to jail and removed from his post. As with the Bin Laden episode, the timing could not have been improved upon. Strauss-Kahn was removed just as he was on his way to a meeting with European Union (EU) and Euro zone officials to “deal with” the latest flare up of the Greek debt drama. Presto, the Greek debt drama duly worsened, commodity prices fell some more (for a few days), the US Dollar rebounded and the Treasury’s debt limit was hit without a tremor.

As to Mr Strass-Kahn’s “indiscretion”, the entire thing is peurile in the extreme. In what has been called the “honey trap”, it had little to do with removing him as a potential rival to President Sarkosy of France in the next French elections. The whole idea was to put the IMF in disarray. This served and serves two purposes. First, it removes the “international” aspect of the moves the EU is making to damp down the ongoing Greek (and others) debt crisis. That turns the “sovereign debt crisis” into a strictly European problem and makes sure the headlines keep coming. Second, the stoush of who the next IMF head will be is now predicted to last until (at least) June 30. This takes the spotlight off the winding down of the Fed’s QE2, which is scheduled to end on - that’s right - June 30.

The IMF is usually portrayed in the mainstream media as a “Washington-based” international financial organisation. It is. There is only one nation which has enough voting power within the IMF to torpedo ANY major decision it makes all by itself. That nation is the US. Substantial IMF policy actions call for an 85 percent “approval” vote amongst the member nations. The US voting “quota” is 17 percent.

The only substantial IMF change would be a change in these voting quotas. The US quota has not changed. When the “emerging nations” won an increased vote, they won it from Europe, not the US.

Any questions?

Psychological triggering episodes work on both predators (unwary, old, past their prime) and prey.

If you've not seen the classic photo op of DSK, Obama & Michelle, you should; if anything, that photo is DSK's epitaph. It is also a message; Mrs Obama is (look back on her photos at the Press dinner, where Mr. made his play, succeeded, and then 'got Bin Ladin' the next day - and look closely at her feral snarl at the Fox guy) the real smarts. And the one to take umbrage. And the one to determine the method of execution. (Not "Death by Water", but "La mort d'un pied-noir par la tentation de l'Afrique " -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=js2_hBDi2LI&feature=related _ )

Anyhow - kudos to Tyler. The substance of this was discussed the day after the initial arrest by a couple of people I know (and was largely my own interpretation, although I admit I missed the voting rights issue; I assumed that'd been altered a while back), who agree (roughly) with this analysis.

The real kudos is publishing this - about the only source on the planet who will at the moment, I feel. Barring the tin-foil hats & professionally paranoid about lizards*, of course.

We have also arranged things so that almost no one understands science and technology. This is a prescription for disaster. We might get away with it for a while, but sooner or later this combustible mixture of ignorance and power is going to blow up in our faces.

Carl Sagan

 

If you knew anything about chemistry, psychology, politics, and so on, ad infinitum, then you'd realise that "what the papers say" is short hand for "what you need to read between the lines to get hold of what is really there". If you don't realise this, you're a dangerous idiot. Or a useful idiot for someone with the wrong agenda - the two overlap in Venn diagram terms.

I like the article also.

Paragraph 1: "It is impossible to understand the downfall of Dominique Strauss-Khan without linking it to his project for the creation of a new international reserve currency, which was to be launched on 26 May 2011 at the Deauville G-8 summit. The project was paradoxically anticipated as much by the Emerging States as by stateless capital, but rejected by the U.S.-Israeli military-industrial complex."

And this one:

Operation Sarkozy : how the CIA placed one of its agents at the presidency of the French Republic

http://www.voltairenet.org/article157821.html

Those who pronounce the idea of the DSK debacle as a conspiracy are absolutely correct:

Conspiracy (legal definition):

Conspiracy is a separate offense, by which someone conspires or agrees with someone else to do something which, if actually carried out, would amount to another federal crime or offense. It is an agreement or a kind of partnership for criminal purposes in which each member becomes the agent or partner of every other member.

That's what I've been posting since the day after DSK's arrest, and getting widely junked. Bloody plagiarist! :) The US still has enough voting power to veto any policies (Super majority decisions) that require a 85% majority. Together with the re-evaluation of the SDR, I think he is absolutely correct to suppose that the voting reforms proposed by DSK last year was the cause of his downfall.

Dismal economic data throughout QE2 has been ignored in favor of corporate and market expansion which lead me to think that the problem itself was being used to game a weak and ineffectual democratic government but with only a month to go the markets unconcern that this heroin is ending (except maybe with the financial stocks) has greatly disappointed me.

The lag times on all of this are enormous. An object in motion after all.....so at the end of QE1 it may have been permissable to let the economy actually take a step back to let the fear set in and the heroin continue but QE3 and the law of diminishing returns demands faster and greater recognition. There is no perceptible upturn heading into the stretch as with QE1. Things are clearly already deteriorating.  You don't want to wait until the economy is in even more trouble this time, you want to artifically induce it now to start the wheels in motion so that the stimulus is continuous. 

All I can figure is that those critical to the whole have now sufficiently made provisions and double checked their calculations and are confident that letting the floor out from the economy this time will produce enough creative destruction while preserving the wealth of of those in the know.

In forest fire terms the houses are protected, the back fires are complete, the crews are in place and the wind direction is most favorable to let the fire out of containment until it burns the undergrowth to the desired areas until fire containment or fire extinction is achieved.

Equity markets have become a medium through which the vested interests try to obscure the reality of their failures. What is said in private is vastly different. The momo traders who are getting rich by buying the dip prefer to ignore the wider reality, and see it as a game for them to exploit.

The governments are still insolvent, the banking system is still in crisis, but the extent of their ambition is merely to delay the reckoning for one more day at a time.

The patricians will end up destroying the economy for a generation merely to maintain their exalted position for a few more months. This will not be the first society to fail in this way.

A Man, you nailed it on the head. The gov't and Fed spent all of that debt fueled money to save the system from crashing in 2008. It really did nothing to help the economy as the real economy has been slowly deteriorating. Bring on QE3, it is futile in nature. The economy is going to tank no matter what. Fed = fail.

Dude, you seem to be under the impression that the Fed's manipulations have somehow done something for the economy.

Wrong.

All Bernanke has done is inflate equities and commodoties. The economy is in the tank, and everyone knows it. That's the point. We all know it. He's created the "wealth effect" by providing artificial support to the markets, but the economy, no. GDP, on life support. Unemployment? Getting worse, not better, regardless of what the BLS would have us believe. Inflation in the things that matter, like food and gas? Killing the middle class. There is no recovery. Period.

No, piling more debt on the debt problem will not solve it. QE is just stealing from the middle class now and in the future.

You said it yourself, things are clearly deteriorating. QE is a complete failure with regard to stimulating the economy. And finally, more people are starting to see it. You should look closely, as well.

alien-IQ - we know, we know.. couldn't have D. Brown'd it better, right?

But wait... D. Brown suggests a common touch, and thus it is - laziness within the dream factory.

One would suggest looking into "hyperstition". Mythology is created, and they have their play-book; but much more fun is a newer, hipper / funkier (who eat hipsters), version who want to blow the old methodologies away. Anonymous aren't all innocent geeks, some of them have sharp pointy teeth. As do some culture jammers. We're still in Kansas, where Disney weddings are mirrored exactly by reality [http://twitpic.com/4wrwhz] and so forth.

The solution? Make your own. Make them smarter, faster, more idetic. Sharp. Pointy. Teeth. And no, this isn't a Twlight reference (but refer to twilight for a 'how to' on teenage dreams manual).

The trick? Realise that they're just culture-jamming, with more resources and a more tightly defined play-book - but there's no magic to it, it's all smoke & mirrors, and you can play the game just as well.

Looks like Goldman has given all the sovereigns better prices to get out of there risk assets. Goldman is always doing Gods, no matter how stupid they are!!!

Yes, thank-you. That's the photo that I was referring to.

 

All governments suffer a recurring problem: Power attracts pathological personalities. It is not that power corrupts but that it is magnetic to the corruptible. Such people have a tendency to become drunk on violence, a condition to which they are quickly addicted.

 

And in that moment, Mrs O. knew what to do....

OMdoubleG tamboo...where did you find that pic???  The old lech looks used up, worn out, wrinkled head to toe and everything in between.  ...him on viagra? scary. My belief in the hotel maid statement that she was not a willing partner is forever reinforced.

Probably the 5.5 billion people on this planet (80%) living off $10 or under a day.

 

At some point, all you American fatties are going to look mighty fucking tasty, especially if put out as ribs & burgers.

Ye, I think you missed that window when Charlton Heston wasn't shilling for NRA monies, but was making disaster movies.

Three times in the 70's:

Monkeys and Parisian Pygmalion

Ecological disaster and Green Eating

The Omega Man and bad hair days for the crazies

 

In other words - too. fucking. late. You have given the world bad entertainment; the world desires it made real; you fatties are the baseline resource to make it real.

It's just torture and murder. No plot, no characters. Very, very realistic. I think it's what's next.


Then God help us.


North America's getting soft, *patron*, and the rest of the world is getting tough. Very, very tough. We're entering savage new times, and we're going to have to be pure and direct and strong, if we're going to survive them. Now, you and this cesspool you call a television station and your people who wallow around in it, your viewers who watch you do it, they're rotting us away from the inside. We intend to stop that rot.

 

Long live the new flesh.

Huh ? What's your preferred weapon, Weapons ? A hash pipe ? QEsucks, I'd be happy to admit I'm a troll if I knew what it was and I was one ! I thought a troll was someone who the Fed sent here to discourage Hoarders like me ? Monedas 2011 I dreamt I was in Joplin, Missouri and a tornado passed through ! In the morning everything looked like Janis Joplin´s bush !

I approve of the sentiment - and you should be suspicious of all posters on the internet - however, you're sadly behind the times. I'm not a troll. My nick alone tells you three things - the most exact being "The narrative takes the form of a fractured biography of a man called Cheradenine Zakalwe, who was born outside of the Culture but was recruited into it by Special Circumstances agent Diziet Sma to work as an operative intervening in less advanced civilizations. The novel recounts several of these interventions and Zakalwe's attempts to come to terms with his own past.

A paid shill troll (of the type sponsored and paid for by the USA, or other govs) has multiple nicks, and a much less developed history, and its agenda is easy to spot. Trolling ZH would mean simply shouting "I'm hardcore on PMs" and "All government is BAD" then including some further nonsense about how I've been shorting paper silver whilst making share trades.  Track & read my posts - I'm something different.

Hint: outlier. With sharp pointy teeth. And I'm a little beyond merely fucking around on the edges to make a % cut, which is where most of ZH is. I happen to see the same endgame Tyler does, but unlike him, I'm not happy with the outcome (or rather: I'm not willing to profit directly from it online - this isn't to say his product isn't AAA rated, its just I don't do insider trading).

Oh, and I'm on 'your' side; I won't go into the personal costings of my position, but suffice to say - I've paid hard coin for my position, and no doubt, will have to pay further for it. Probably a liver or kidney, my body is worth $45 mil after all in parts - and yes, I've met predators who deal in blood sports direct, and spent 5+ years being tested. [hint: The Queen of England is most comfortable with horsey people - do your research, in regards to why Obama went there at the same time. Horses are the key to old predators. Personally, I don't bond with anything I might end up eating.].

 

But touched you care (and on so little time here!)

 

p.s. No, I won't junk you - I approve of troll awareness. Hamy is still hilarious though (and, for all of you - probably Tyler's alter-ego, there's an edge of panache and humour that is 100% style... I hope it is him, otherwise he has serious competition)

Its only a living proof that Murphy's law once again kicks in at the proper time.

 

From Wikipedia:

Murphy's law is an adage or epigram that is typically stated as: "Anything that can go wrong will go wrong".

 

That law has been verified time and time again. Only the Bernak seems to be immune to it so far.

That is the reward one gets for diligently studying the last war so as to be perfectly prepared to fight the next one.

It was a real lesson in primate behavior how even ZH readers became so polarized over this issue.

There is no way we can know the facts, and yet we are so convinced a man of power would do this that we join the crowd in attacking him.  Read Gustuve LeBon's excellent 96 page book, The Crowd on crowd behavior.  The DSK incident is a perfect example of theory in action.

Personally, I didn't believe the story.  It is completely possible that a 62 year old man that gets more tail than Sinatra would suddenly flip out and attack a maid.  Sure, but is it probable?  Ten billion ladies coming out of the woodwork to say he came on to them doesn't make him a rapist.  Surely a ladies man would understand that appearing naked before a stranger, chasing her down, and saying "Don't you know who I am?" really isn't calculated to work as a pick up line.  And just how does a 62 year old rolly polly banker catch a 32 year old woman, who can't manage to get away until she performs oral sex on him?  It is possible he did all this, but the story unfolds so that there is no evidence of rape, just evidence of sex.  I don't like the story she is telling.  It smells bad.  

Of course, there may be evidence that she has bruised on her wrists, knees, hair pulled out, whatever.  My point is the people that are so convinced that this is just a rape, are extremely overconfident of their command of the facts, and incredibly naive about the evil lurking in the hearts of the people who control (and are destroying) the world.  Enjoy your view of reality pitchfork wielders, I have no idea if he raped her.  Ask the Duke LaCross players what they think.  Their view of these things is probably to wait for the evidence to come out.  You're smarter than they, right?
