Quote Du Jour From Jean-Claude

Tyler Durden's picture

Remember Jean-Claude Juncker? The guy who promised he would quit his unelected post in Europe's neo-vassal imperial council, and tend to his garden or something due to the endless acrimony between France and Germany, only to clarify later he lied? Well, here he is again


Got it. Of course, this is the same guy who said "When it becomes serious, you have to lie." It is, again, serious.

Man who up arrow own comment down arrow his intellect.

Hey you're right. Now I do feel a little less intelligent.

I did an up arrow on myself once [accident] and I felt like a dirty whore .... kinda hot actually.

So that's why politicians do what they do. Gotta try it myself. Maybe I'll run for office... 

One up vote for meeeee. And youse too Taint Boil.

Why is it that European leaders keep embarassing themselves in the face of the world by always getting it wrong time after time after time, and then lying about? 

Conrad Murray's picture

Drop the "European" and swap politicians for leaders and you have a foundation for understanding why...THE END IS NEAR!!!

MsCreant's picture

Because they don't give a shit? Because they are brazen, arrogant, and above the law? Because they are Psychopaths who do not know the emotion embarrassment? 

Oh, sorry, I forget I'm not supposed to answer rhetorical questions.

Wait I know this one...

People let them

Did hear the Howard Stern interview voters? Listen to it and that will answer you question. They are so fucking stupid they think Paul Ryan is black and running as Obummer's veep.

Well, no one here thought Ben would go full retard on QE3 two months before the election either. I sure didn't and neither did my mentors kito or Graham Summers.  :~)

Just underscores how bad Benny knows it really is out there.

cougar_w's picture

Well I thought he would QE to the moon, and said so in a comment, and calculated the timing accurately backwards from the election day because the US election is what would drive the decision, and nothing else.

I was right, but for a very simple reason that doesn't get much play:

We are in the end-game. Nothing matters now except holding the center of the playing board until every other player has been driven off the edges. Every move is now predetermined by the pace of change. The players have few actual choices. They have no time for strategy. It is all tactics now and nothing else.

In the race to the bottom, the last to arrive is the winner. Bernanke waited as long as he could to time QE3 for the elections. He plans on winning, and to do that he has to stay at the helm of The Fed until the last dog is hung, and to do that Obama must win the election. They are bound at the hip, B+O. Europe may flail. China may crash. But Bernanke is going to personally ride this nuclear powered train right off the end of the rails.

In less than four years, it will have happened.

Obama might even be the last elected President of the United States of America. I give that a very low probability, but the probability is not zero. And if that happens Ben Bernanke will be holding the reins of the last operational Central Bank on the planet earth.

Think about that, and then explain to me why anyone thought he would not QE to the moon.

Hedgetard55's picture

Looks like I have a new mentor...  :~)

Jlmadyson's picture

Oh it's getting very serious again with all this Spain and Greece talk.

Which of course means nothing good for Draghi and friends.

Then ya got Plosser lambasting QE3 today which means nothing good for Bernake and friends.

We could sent over Pelosi to help them work it out...

Maybe she can work in the Italian Post Office on the side.

Time to dig up some classic quotes from the european politico from the pre WWI/WWII era.  Expect the next quote to be "Hello, we are from the IMF and we are here to help."

This sounds vaguely familiar like déjà vu or something ... You know a glitch when they change something in the matrix.

ZeroAvatar's picture

Sometimes that happens when you switch universes. Any major emotions prior to the glitch?

euro fucking trash.  Sick of reading Juncker lie after lie.  Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to pick up the NY Times, while on the couch in front of CNBC, for some needed factual relief.

I know I've lied to you in the past and I know I told you I would lie as necessary but you should believe me now because I'm telling you the truth. Yeah, got it.

diogeneslaertius's picture

the planet doesnt have Owners who Own you, that would be a conspiracy theory!

as theoretical as skyrocketing food prices coupled with engineered cold world war 3 and your increasingly inability to use any form of paper currency to purchase sufficient quantities of tangible assets

it certainly is not by design

the elite love and honor humanity and would never see us as expendable human resources merely using up precious resources that they think belong only to them

But he's right!!!  It's not in the interest of the kleptocrats to have the middle class upset prior to the middle class being destroyed.  Why would you announce a death sentence to the condemned, when you can simply carry it out with no comment.


So, no, the Eurozone will not break apart.  Trillions upon trillions in bailouts until the middle class starves to death.

The amount of cash in circulation is about $829 billion ccording to the latest Federal Reserve Bank numbers for 2009. And over half of that is outside the United States. Bank DEPOSITS alone are over $10 trillion, including time deposits such as CDs, as of about March 2012. That means there are only about 5-cents in cash to cover each dollar on deposit. Better start your bank run now!

Junior Prepper's picture

The banks will prevent a bank run by having the government outlaw cash. It's a barbaric relic after all, this paper stuff.

This guy and Von Rumple are two of the worst humans ever.

Although given what the EU has to offer (except Nigel) might be the "cream" of the LIARS.
