"It's All The Fed's Fault" Santelli Rages, They "Will Certainly Turn Us Into Japan"

Tyler Durden's picture

Who is to blame for all this volatility? CNBC's Rick Santelli scoffs at the growing mainstream media's recognition that The Fed is to blame for daring to raise rates - "a group of unelected officials ruining the party and taking away the punch-bowl."

Santelli's problem is that "every time the picture of the world was not what The Fed wanted us to see, they changed the channel," and now they are cornered in their lies, "all along The Fed should have been honest about the true quality of the jobs data.. and now they are force to tell the truth about it, they risk losing all of their credibility."

"The notion that a small group of people should control the price of money should be under review," Rick rages, warning that "if stocks are rallying because The Fed is retreating, we certainly will turn into Japan."


Here is Santelli with two minutes of simple truth...

Turning us into Japan?   We should be so lucky.

The government is trying to turn us into a turd world shithole.

That's why Santelli has little credibility discussing these subjects. He works for the BlowHorn [CNBC] and is nothing but controlled oppostion.

In the 1980's that was the mantra:  we need to be more like Japan.

It scared every on ewhen they bought the Ponderosa and landmark buildings in NY.

I guess "they" got what they asked for.

I consider it a badge of honor calling Santelli out and getting down voted. Obviously, it rubs some people here the wrong way. Why? I'm not sure since nobody bothers to engage is a real argument about his overall analysis and motives for working for the BlowHorn. He didnt say anything new or original in that clip.

And approximately 230 years after he uttered those ominous and prophetic words, the Rothschild Dynasty has now purloined nearly everything via its tentacles of the TBTFs, most central banks, the IMF, the World Bank, the BIS and any number of affiliated organisations like the Bilderbergers, G20 and so on.

Capitalism and Socialism are dead, what we have now is global Financialism.

The RickSter is right on and the fact that Japan has not been destroyed means we can go much further down the road to Insanity . . .

yes and no?

japan could use global trade and an expanding global debt bubble 

would this have 'worked' for japan in the current global context?

as best i can understand - to the degree that it 'worked' at all - was just a giant can kicking exercise

with global conditions as they are - even if you are the US - i doubt you could kick the can as high and as far this time around.....

japan has the "advantage" of having a conservative, patriotic, believe in authority type society.

usa fortunately understands that dissent is patriotism, and people are getting fed up with the bullshit (better late than never i suppose!)

add to that, usa has been living on "exorbitant priviledge" (global reserve currency), and when that advantage goes away we have much farther to fall.

So the bankers who asked for/accepted a bailout are not at fault? Only the fed?

Sounds like the same baby crying over and over again that the fed hasn't worked hard enough to improve the yield for all of the bankers.

The banker class in the west seems to be a brainwashed mass that truly believes that currency is root value, and that value can be created with proper financial moves. They have no concept of the basic truth of their existence, that they're merely trading value back and forth, not creating it.

yea i feel the same when I see congress cry about the banks or the banks cry about congress. Its like neither group has any big boy pants. 

Im the one who should be crying- just watching my economic fate twist in the wind.

At least they didn't flood japan with third world immigrants, destroy the traditional family structure, destroy Christian culture and turn the Japs into a bunch of hedonistic pagans who let their Luciferian leaders lead us into ruinous and immoral foreign wars of detruction. At least they didn't export all their high paying jobs and manufacturing overseas. Does political correctness rule the day in Japan? Do they have the largest incaceration rate in the world as we do? Is their education far overpriced and produce the lowest math and science scores in the entire free world? Does japan have the most expensive and mediocre health care in the world as we do? In many ways, I wish we were more like japan.

We will go full Japan.  But it won't hold out for long.  The culture isn't there.  Nor is the timing.  Japan gets away it because of culture and timing.  But, that won't stop TPTB from trying.  There isn't any other option.  Well, except WWIII.

herkomilchen's picture

That's a very interesting observation.  Can the U.S. be Japanned without having the Japanese culture.  Hate to say it, but so far the answer has been yes.  As the rack stretches, suppose we will find out if any of the original U.S. spirit remains or not.

Why cant we find out who the owners of the ny fed are, and please dont tell me this us necessary to preserve the FRS' 'independence.'

We might have found out more about the Fed if Rand Paul's 'Audit the Fed' bill had been passed in the Senate this week. However, despite having a 53:44 vote for cloture (it needed 60%) it was derailed by a filibuster launched by bought-and-paid-for Fed stooges like Sherrod Brown (OH), Elizabeth Warren (MA), and Janet Yellen's favorite Republican, Bob Corker (TN ) and, of course, Harry Reid.

Ted Cruz didn't bother to show up to vote.

He's been ranting like this since '09. Controlled opposition.

centerline's picture

Yup.  His rants relegate him to theater - unfortunately.  Sort of like Nigel Farage.  The interesting thing though is that eventually the dynamic will change.  Just like is happening with Trump.  The formulas will backfire.  And when that does, watch what happens to him (and Nigel, and the like).  That will be very telling.
