Blythe Masters Withdraws From CFTC : Furious Twitter Backlash Blamed

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Following our post yesterday which included the occasional F-bomb and got well over 40K reads since its posting late last night, the reaction was sharp and severe. So severe in fact that less than 24 hours later, Blythe Master has withdrawn from the CFTC. The culprit for Masters' resignation in just 24 hours? A very angry Twitter.

From Bloomberg

Blythe Masters, JPMorgan Chase & Co.’s commodities head, withdrew from an advisory committee of the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission a day after her appointment was disclosed,  according to two people with direct knowledge of the decision.

 

The regulator may include another executive from New York-based JPMorgan on the committee, said one person close to the bank who requested anonymity because the move hasn’t been publicly announced. Masters, 44, withdrew because the company’s sale of its physical commodities unit will keep her occupied, the person said.

 

JPMorgan is selling a division that deals in assets such as metals and oil, as government watchdogs examine whether federally backed lenders should be involved in such markets. Masters’s appointment drew criticism from Twitter users who questioned the propriety of her advising the regulator of futures and swaps.

 

Masters, whose appointment was listed on the CFTC’s website yesterday, had been scheduled to participate in a Feb. 12 meeting to discuss cross-border guidance on rules. She was invited to the panel by acting Chairman Mark Wetjen, said one of the people.

 

Brian Marchiony, a JPMorgan spokesman, said the company had no comment.

Perhaps there is some justice in the world.

We do, however, have one question for Ms. Masters even though we understand she will be "very occupied due to the sale of JPM's physical commodities unit": does this premature resignation confirm that the allegations against the JPMorganite, who had so far been wrapped up in "neither admissions nor denials", are in fact true and accurate? 

And while we have her attention, can Ms. Masters also please advise what other markets she was manipulating?

She used to get rid of trolls.  Hope she spent the time to do it herself.   But she apparently abandoned her blog over a year ago.  Her last post has attracted 30 trolls, including William Banzai.

The blog links to her other sites too- Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, a Wordpress blog, etc.  All abandoned.  Her other sites aren't even infested by trolls.  Strange.

I have a feeling she showed up as a huge return on the dems election radar, and she was promptly disinvited.  Seriously, Blythe never gave a crap about howthe public felt about her and/or what she was doing; she´s been getting dissed for years already.  The Democrats however, are in survival mode, and they sure as shit don´t want more problems.

JPMorgan Chase & Co. announced it would try to sell or spin off its physical commodity trading assets and operations, dismantling an empire built over five years by commodities chief Blythe Masters, 44, ex-wife of Danny Masters.

The announcement came almost 15 years to the day after the bank said it would end its first big foray into raw materials, led then by Danny when the couple was still married.

Born in Oxford, Masters was raised in the south-east of England.[2] She attended The King's School in Canterbury on scholarship.[3] She graduated in 1991 from Trinity College, Cambridge with a B.A. in economics, and joined the bank J.P. Morgan after completing a number of internships there while still a student.[4]

When derivatives played a role in the 2008 financial crisis, Masters was described by the UK newspaper The Guardian as "the woman who invented financial weapons of mass destruction".

She has rejected this as simplistic, telling the newspaper: "I do believe CDSs [credit default swaps] have been miscast, much as poor workmen tend to blame their tools."

Will Chairman Mark Wetjen fall on this sword for this!?

After all, somebody who invites to work with the regulatora person who was heading a trading unit which participated in market manipulation against that regulators own regulations is either seriously incompetent or corrupt, either of which mean that the person making the invitation is not fit to hold that position.

As I see it, the only reason the corruption of the system is increasing is because the cronyies who bring other cronyies in never suffer for it: they either get away with it or they fail and suffer nothing. It's always a zero-risk opportunity.

If the balance of risk was adjusted so that nominating your buddies "just because" carried a risk of loss if it turned out they were not fit for that position, then this kind of thing would rarelly happen.

The news story is a propaganda technique called

Door In The Face

Is used to increase a person's latitude of acceptance. For example, if a salesperson wants to sell an item for $100 but the public is only willing to pay $50, the salesperson first offers the item at a higher price (e.g., $200) and subsequently reduces the price to $100 to make it seem like a good deal.

I suspect it wasn't her that took notice.  She was told to withdraw and reasonably compensated for the inconvenience.

"Maybe Twitter is worth something after all; other than as a stock."

You know, there have been several events like this -- remember the meltdown when JPM announced the Q&A back in November?

It seems to be an effective shaming tool for TPTB (for now.) I think the key is that it's both public and that your comments get attached directly to the antagonists you reply to -- so they can't really hide.

There might be some value in tweeting snarks to these asses after all. If nothing else, it helps wake others up to their bad behavior.

A Simple Question

Every other month, for the last twelve years, either Goldman Sachs or JPMorgan Chase has been under investigation for some form of financial fraud or other.

If America were really a "land of laws" would a criminal organization like that still have any credit rating?

If America were really a "land of laws" would the US Department of the Treasury be primarily filled with personnel from JPMorgan Chase and Goldman Sachs?

Would any legitimate enterprise hire anyone from those two disreputable criminal organizations?

Negative. . . .

We need balls-to-the-walls prosecutions of JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs, credit rating agencies, Countrywide, the mortgage industry, the appraisers,Freddie and Fannie, Citi and the big bankster  Wall Street banks, AIG, and current and former federal co-conspirators at U.S. Treasury, SEC, OTS, Federal Reserve, especially FRBNY( Tiny Tim, Dudley-Do-Wrong), and those members of Congress who aided and abetted the greatest financial crimes in U.S. history.

Justice demands these long-overdue prosecutions of overlapping RICO criminal enterprises. We need 20 years-to-life hard time prison sentences for the hundreds convicted. We need RICO confiscations of the hundreds of billions in illegal "profits" from the criminal enterprises of the banks, mortgage industry, and Wall Street Mafia.

Because of the huge backlog of RICO cases, the prosecution and the courtroom should be modified to process the mass trials in style of the Maxiprocesso (Maxi Trials) of the Mafia in Sicily during the 1980s that resulted in hundreds of defendants convicted.

I'm sure she can get herself a lucrative consulting deal.

That way, there won't be a claim that one of their employees buried manipulation claims... "upon further review, one of our trusted advisors has informed us that everything is fine, and there's nothing to see here."

Its not just about money, they are hugely egotistical. They want to advance to the head of the class, wear the crown and such. This is especially important for the driven women out there. They have much to prove and it just isn't cool to be waving around your bank book and bragging. Its about the chair and the crown. Think "Hillary". Its about power and the prestige that comes with it.
