This Man Will Never Be Invited Back On CNBC

Tyler Durden's picture

And now for something completely unexpected: 2 minutes of pure truth (courtesy of Mizuho's Steve Ricchiuto) on CNBC...


148 seconds of awkward uncomfortable truthiness...


While Steve had a number of hard to hear quotes for the CNBC anchors - such as:

"There is no acceleration in underlying economic activity," and


"There's this wrong concept that I keep on hearing about in the financial press about the acceleration in economic growth... It's not happening!"


A stunned Simon Hobbs rebuffs, "That's a long list of non-ideal situations we find ourselves in," to which Ricchiuto snaps back "and we can keep on going!"


"After a string of dismal data on durable goods, retail spending, and inventories, we get a good jobs number and everyone saying the economy's good - it's not good!"

It was Sara Eisen that had the quote of the brief clip... (which has unbelievably been edited out since we posted it seems at around the 1:40 mark) when faced Steve's barrage of facts about the real economy, replied:

"but the key is that's not what The Fed is telling us."

Summing up the unbelievable 'faith'  (misplaced beyond all reputational loss) that so many have in the central planners of the world.

This guy should avoid going Home at all. I "liked" him.

Uhmmmmmmmmmm ...........

...the people "committing suicide" have all been "insiders" for the banks (and in some cases their inconveniently present spouses)


The suicides kicked off right around the time the Katsuyama et al had their "backers' briefing meeting" and some 0.0001% guys found out they were being played for fools.

Or haven't any of you noticed that fact?

Which big guys were played by the other big guys? Once the elite starts devouring itself (which you implied correctly), the collapse is not far off. The parasites have run out of bodies to suck from.

Mizuho is a bank holding company out of Japan.  When they talk about "no growth" you can probably believe they know what they're talking about.

Liberal's picture

As a staunch liberal, I'd like to strongly bang Sara Eisen but that's probably racist.

This is Why Zero should be a daily read. One of their best. Zero said interest rates at 0 for a longgggggg timeeeeee.

Yahoo, in the end. This will cause inflation. Even if it takes 5 years or so. Unless we have WAR somewhere. Hmmm.

Doesn't he listen to MSM and POTUS ?


What?! It never been better ! It's awesome ! Robust ! Green shoots !


Buy more stawks!

realmoney2015's picture

Nobody 'listens' to MSM. They have either turned it off or they zonk out. If people listen to MSM they would realize that it is all propoganda! We all know that the Fed can't raise interest rates. Look at the housing market! It's terrible. What would it look like if interest rates were to rise? The economy has not and will not improve until it crashes completely and resets (hopefully with real free markets). 

Until then, stop going in debt. Only buy what you can afford. Use cash as much as possible. Better yet, use silver where its possible. Friend helps you move, give him a silver eagle. Need a lift to the airport give them a few silver dimes. If your friends won't accept these as payments maybe these candles with silver coin prizes would be better appreciated:

No hot tubbing for this guy any time soon. 

You can almost see the thoughts bouncing around the bimbos brain, "is this good or bad for the market? will the boss yell at me again for trying to ask a question? when will Simon shut up and go back to England? Remember just look hot and fuckable to the rich Wall St. guys, this gross, fat guy is soooo negative, when will I get to do my LuLuLemon profile? will someone from NBC please call today...."

Stop pimping your fucking candles here.

Stop pimping your fucking candles here

... but they're so ... so .. so "tubular"

Okay, so a reliable conformation of what most everybody here and else where have already accepted. A crisis is being engineered to make it look like the FED has to, again, ease the loss those poor poor overwhelmed wall street gangsters again. The indexes have been pretty much flat bouncing about inside a narrow band. So what do we do with that knowledge? Rick Santelli graphically illustrates the effects sideways equity indexes have on FED policy.

In recent days CNBC has been touting the social sites as movers. Can we eat social sites. And then we have this whole other universe of drifting scam clouts, the online a click ad sales chain and the back link to 404 dead site and page rankings with the promise that the higher one gets on the search index the close to god one becomes. Selling how to-s to those entering the daisy chain click tug cirle jerk. Ads who sell "ads". I'll buy that for a dollar.

Stronger dollar means more Filipinos can be hired to work the call centers for US corporations.  Cheaper to build and fabricate somewhere far away. We be in the trenches hungary for sweet pampered fat cat meat ripe on de bone.

But I thought the winner in a currency way was the sovereign that had the bullocks to shed more value than any other player in the sovereign markets. The repeal of G/S made sovereigns a commodity and hedge funds an investment (they used to, more or less, financial insurance). Something is up - something spectacular that promises to take our minds off this stuff. Time to gopher for ads looking to hire crisis actors. We need a manifesto, something to convince the dandies to accept the benefits of an alternate path that offers the least pain.

I going to go water the facebook lettuce in my garden. A little olive oil, salt and pepper and it should be lip smacking good for a non sustaining produce.

 I'm not "sliding" anything in "Chelsea Clinton" , you do it.

MontgomeryScott's picture

That's fucking sick (the thought of sliding anything into Chelsea Clinton). Even if she was standing in front of me, 'twerking' (like her Illuminati-trained sisters), I would probably have to 1): projectily vomit; and 2) go to the store and buy a case of Lysol to try to kill whatever parasites were still alive in the room she co-inhabited with me (from 10 feet away).

Brian Williams, however, probably wouldn't have any issues. Soetoro might (because he prefers 'OTW' sex), though. Myself: I prefer to breed within my own species. I mean, Tuna Casserole is fine when it's fresh, but after a month in the summer heat, without refrigeration, and knowing that the dogs have already been there,...

Exactly NoDebt!!!


However, you should also note how long the farce was maintained in Japan... In orders, the powers that be can keep this shit going for a lot longer than we can hold on to our worthy commodities (whether, it is gold, silver, farm land or lead!).  This system must be acclerated to its downfall. 


off with the zionists' heads, otherwise, we're all Gazans in one form or another.

walkure ... you really need to get out and peruse the internet more.

The current, (and best explanation in my opinion) of the banker minion hits is that it is the work of disgruntled MIC rejects. Note I don't use the term "rejects" in a derogatory manner, rather these are folks (with knowhow & means) that are fed up and won't put up with this BS any longer. Since the big wigs are too heavily guarded, they're going after the more accessible 3rd & 4th tier.  Makes perfect sense (and for sure don't look for U.S. gov to publicly acknowledge these operations anytime soon, although, no doubt behind the scenes they're scurrying about like cockroaches).


Note too, it's JPM taking the lion share of hits,  guess that means goldmam sucks will be the last standing (vampires (i.e. the tribe) are notoriously hard to kill) .  Quelle surprise.

walküre's picture

"get out and peruse the internet more"... which is it?

The 3rd and 4th tier has no influence on the banking system, so why knock the down? Warning shots across the bow maybe? MIC is starving for a good ole' fashioned war. Why else would they push hard and strong to deliver weapons into Ukraine. The script is old and the world is tired of it. Hopefully Europe will stand firm and not allow this. Better yet, make a deal with the Russians and slowly but surely dissolve this whole NATO nonsense.

JPM has triple the book value of GS. That's cause for some serious anxiety among bald headed shorties. How does it look over at Morgan Stanley?

essence's picture

Dude... grab coffee with a friend for personal time, for information ...get on the internet.
That's what I meant by "getting out"

The 3rd and 4th banker tier is evidently, what can be got at. You don't seriously think anybody can approach Jamie or Lloyd?  Don't think MIC is one big happy family, there's still some with old fashioned virtues (or at least, really significant differences in opinion).... or so this theory goes.  Again, it makes enough sense to be feasible and it's the best I've come across. You don't really think the banksters are covering their tracks by wacking their 3rd and 4th tier. Do you?

I realize you're in Europe, but are you so obtuse as not to realize that the government of the U.S. has long since been hijacked? Consider it like a few mafia families fighting over the spoils.

And Europe?  LOL .... its "leaders" are as bought off as the ones in the U.S.

Finally, JPM might have triple the book value of GS, but they aren't the tribe, and (as politically incorrect as it may be to state it ... like I care), if there's one thing one must realize about the U.S, it's that the tribe sticks together (duh.... hence the nickname)  and collectively they have the most money. I n the U.S., that means the most power.




barliman's picture


Some take away for you chaps to chew on:

The OLD Mafia families moved into banking to become "legitimate" starting in the '70's (e.g. they shifted from owning a percentage of the banks to OWNING the banks)

Some of the folks who have "suicided" have been 2nd and 3rd tier with the more highly placed "suicides" occurring in Europe where having lots of heavily armed "associates" with you at all times is considered declasse. A few of the 3rd tier folks are likely the people who actually got their hands dirty doing things to people too wealthy to be casually fucked with.

The MIC, as conventionally thought of, is NOT where the movers and shakers are located. Those "poorer relations" can't generate ANYTHING like the "revenue flow" MERS created. The "problem solution" people are drawn from the SEALS, Delta and even more elite units that literally do not have names and do not exist on any record anywhere. Talent goes where the money is and THE MONEY is now measured in TRILLIONS. You can buy a lot of security for a billion dollars.

You ARE remembering that Goldman Sachs was one of the initial investors in IEX, correct?

stormsailor's picture

if i wanted one of those asshole first tier fucks bad enough,  he would be one shot from up to 1000 yds out.  doubt their security could stop that.

Socratic Dog's picture

Um, that would be "suicided" from 1,000 yards out.

Go to work, please.

1000 yards nail gun shot... wow... :-)

At 500 meters with a good scope and cheap silencer they won't event hear the cause of the end.   If 100 well trained people could act together we could crash the system.

But... but... they only want to send DEFENSIVE weapons to Ukraine.  You know: land mines: those little things that blow the legs off women and children working in the fields or taking a short cut home from school or just playing outside.  "DEFENSIVE weapons, to Defend Liberty".
