Monti. Out.

The rumors have been flying around all morning, but now it's news...

  • ITALY PRIME MINISTER MONTI RESIGNS, PRESIDENT SAYS - BBG

Italian credit spreads leaked wider all morning and EURUSD lower though the correlation to losing a technocrat is perhaps a stretch. And so the great "Mark-to-Monti" Goldman rotation (as described previously) is complete, with Goldman losing a technocratic scribe, who is no longer needed thanks to yet another Goldmanite now in charge of the ECB, but far more importantly, Goldman has now gained control over that most prized of central planner jewels: the Bank of England.

It's still a couple of months until the squid gets it's tentacles on the BOE.

Mark Carneyvore is the perfect cephalopod for the job. He actually earned his inkjets in transferring the sovereign wealth of the former USSR to the squid oligarchs back in the 1990's.

I never understood why a GS managing director in London would give up his multimillion dollar salary for what was at first a junior position in the Canadian Ministry of Finance.

We are about to find out.

Speaking of Italian and swine, the other night we put together some fantastic sausage and cheese stuffed manicotti using homemade mozzarella, parmesan, and ricotta, along with some spinach from the garden.

Yo h_h... Is that swine meat 'Cinghiale' [wild boar], or just regular pig?... Looks good either way [though I like the tanginess of wild boar]... I used to live in central Italy & had those fuckers runnin around the mountain woods all over the place [& unfortunately, tearing up my lawn on occasion]... My dog was scared of shit of those SOB's...

So the guy on top has to make the bunk of the guy on bottom, or is it the other way around in Italy?  I forget.

Texas allows hunters to kill wild hogs year-round without limits or capture them alive to take to slaughterhouses to be processed and sold to restaurants as exotic meat.

LMAO ~

Maybe I should fold.

Well, let me see.

Let me see first.

No, not with a hand like that.

Come on.

Dare me. Go on, bluff me.

Come on.

How much should I bet?

If it were me, I'd bet everything.

But that's me. I'm an aggressive gambler. Mr. Vegas.

Please stop this collectivist crap, this divide and conquer paradigm you are pushing fits into the ruling (so called) elite’s playbook. It is getting old and you are aiding the few thousand of the ruling capos. OK? Thank you in advance...

You're right... so sorry... What we need are actually MORE jews controlling the banking, MSM, & political lobby power nodes... Just to balance things out more and make things a bit more fair...

~~~

See ~ because less than one half of one percent of the worlds population calling the shots for everyone [by virtue of over 70% representation in the aforementioned critical nodes] is a rather normal statistical/mathematical representation]...

~~~

In the end... It's not francis_sawyer that anyone needs to worry about... I've stated many times before:

- I'm not warming up any ovens

- I'm not spray painting swastikas on any synagogues

- I'm not strapping bombs onto my back

The thing is... Sooner or later, the 'dumbed down' crowd is going to figure out what is going on... GOD HELP THE JEWS when that happens (because I doubt the masses are as reasonable & compassionate as francis_sawyer is)... I'm just trying to issue fair warning here... THOSE PEOPLE [the 'dumbed down' masses] are't my friends either... Neither am I trying to rally them to a cause... Lord knows that even if I tried [in the present moment] they don't even know WTF I'm talking about [or act indignant, as you do here]... But I'm certain that eventually they'll come to an eventual realization as to their plight

& THAT will be the moment that you have to start worrying about "collectivist" kind of talk... Because when MOBS act, it isn't often pretty... I'm the least of your worries...

The only way we could do a revolution is with an armed march to the white house , it will only take 3% of us , anyone who trys to stop us will be tried for treason and shot , once we get there we put ALL of them into a FEMA camp indefinatley.

I thought Monti's demeanor looked a bit too sophisticated to be dragged into running. He doesn't look like the type of person that cares that little about the quality of his life. The other scumbags I cannot say the same about.
