Italy May Be Headed For Revote Following Miserable Bersani-Monti Senate Showing

Tyler Durden's picture


Very bad news for the globalist statist banker oligarchy as it now appears that an Italian revote is virtually unavoidable:


It also means that should Grillo form a coalition with Berlusconi, even if very unlikely, they would have the required 158 seat majority in the Senate. In short: this is a horrible result for Goldman and its technocratic tentacle which got an epic boot from the Italian people.

If Bunga is not with the Rothschilds then Bunga is with the Mafia.

There is no freedom either way. We were serfs, we are serfs and we will always be serfs.

The only freedom is as far as you can shoot from your house that you own free and clear.

"house that you own free and clear"

I thought taxes make that an impossibility

Technically you're correct.

If the class of serfs however isn't able to scrouge together a couple thousand for taxes, then the munis have bigger problems than trying to collect from the serfs.

I've resigned to the fact that all is just a big shit show and everyone is out to screw us anyway. Those who disagree are typically invested in the current status quo and fighting tooth and nail trying to keep the deception and propaganda going.

The arguments are overwhelmingly supportive of the conspiracies.

Did the Mafia invest in wars like the alternative?  I don't think so.  Yeah the Mafia sucks but it is better than the other guys.

The Mafia is the church. I'm not sure if we can qualify that as being better or worse.

Be patient my friend.  As soon as Europe's bones are picked clean, the vultures will fly off to their next victims and you will be left alone, at least until you claw yourselves out of your economic holes.

Armstrong likes this outcome ..

Italy will say the hell with raising taxes under this guy supposedly.

Armstrong is great for a lesson in history and ambiguity – not to be listened for financial advice.

While everyone was bearish on the Greek and Nikkei indexes - he predicted their reversal. He is also been the pundit correct in predicting gold direction over the past year. I find mainstream media and zerohedge are polar extremes, and Armstrong a nice counterbalance. I do have issues with "my computer model sees everything" thesis...... really? I think the thing that really bothers me is that zerohedge constantly bashes the idea of the DOW and S&P reaching new highs on a daily basis and amounts everything to manipulation. Is it manipulation - or capital flow that Armstrong suggests. I'm not an economist, so I can even begin to congecture who's right (just try to value everyone's opinion and try to make the best decisions for myself)

Sorry, don't buy into the thesis that the world economy is under complete central control. That would indicate that someone with intelligence is running the show. Judging by Phd economists and Bernank comments from the past, I don't think anyone is in control (it's just the illusion they give to instill confidence). Markets always find a way.

"That would indicate that someone with intelligence is running the show."

There is another enticing posiblity, i.e. that somebody with NO intelligence, just a few "cool" ideas (result of a combination between poor education and silly ideology) IS running the show. Occam's razor could be such a bitch, sometimes...

Citigroup’s Man Goes to the Treasury Department

"Jack Lew is the nominee for Treasury secretary whose own bonus as an investment banker was bailed out by the Treasury Department when it rescued Citigroup Inc. (C) in 2008. He owes much to America’s taxpayers. He should also be grateful to Citigroup for agreeing to let him rejoin the government without suffering much for it financially.An intriguing revelation from Lew’s Senate confirmation hearing last week was that he stood to be paid handsomely by Citigroup if he left the company for a top U.S. government job, under his 2006 employment agreement with the bank. The wording of the pay provisions made it seem, at least to me, as if Citigroup might have agreed to pay Lew some sort of a bounty to seek out, and be appointed to, such a position."

Until the Italian government is composed of people who explicitly reject the Euro and renounce the Italian debt, the game goes on.  After all, the status quo parties got more than 200 seats.  The FU party only got 53.  A long way to go before they shit down this thing of ours.

Don't worry, Goldman will make this right.  Monti-Bersani- Grillo adds up to control.  Or "take care" of Berlusconi's demands that are before the Goldmans as we speak.  "Or else," says Bunga Bunga.

Stay tuned, but be assured that all is under control, appearances notwithstanding.

Funny thing is we expect the market to go down on Italy implying no more banker bailouts (doing the right thing)

I worry when doing the right thing causes personal loss of wealth have we crossed the abiss
