Barkel Press Conference Begins... And Ends

Tyler Durden's picture

The much anticipated press conference between Merkel and Barroso, hence Barkel, in which nothing of any substance will be announced, has begun. Rolling headlines as we get them:

  • MERKEL SAYS WE NEED MORE EUROPE, NOT LESS IN EURO-ZONE (sounds familiar)
  • MERKEL SAYS WILL DISCUSS EUROPEAN SUPERVISIONS OF BANKS AT EU SUMMIT, BANKING SUPERVISION IS A MID-TERM GOAL
  • BARROSO SAYS WILL PUSH FOR BANKING UNION AT THE COMING SUMMIT
  • MERKEL SAYS EU NEEDS ANSWERS SOON ON POLITICAL UNION
  • MERKEL SAYS DISCUSSING EU BANKING SUPERVISION WITH BARROSO
  • BARROSO SAYS EU SHOULD DISCUSS ELEMENTS OF 'BANKING UNION' -> we agree to hold another conference at a future time

And... that's it folks. Proceed to the egress.

i'll pass, great ass'd lass/laddie

tyler can blow marcFaber if he needs money;  the trollZ will pay-per-spew

tyler's weekend posts were xlnt, btw, due to how fuking ripped he was and i don't mean those abs, BiCheZ!

and if people don't understand what is meant by banking union here, they shoulda been on zH, paying attention over the weekend when marioECB spake of the 4squid-led planners who would lead the EU into abject poverty {while enriching their owners @ (you guessed'er, chester!) the FED}

ps:  the checks are in the mail...  and they are gonna clear...  angela's goose is cooked and they are just waiting to fork her and her nation, 4evah!

Yes, some of the avatars are spectacular.

Merkel trying to get the best deal she can...great game of chicken on display. Whatever the compromise, I suspect Merkel will get something significant in the deal.

Remember the "secret plans" German leadership had up their sleeve to win WWII in 1945?

Neither do I. But they did talk about it a lot. Everyone knew they had one. They had to have one.

Merkel doesn't even need to write new meeting notes; regurgitate the same bullshit again hoping it works better this time.

We can hope they save on paper and use the same old scripts...

On a second thought, can anyone bring them a fucking teleprompter?

Instead of Barkel, how about Moroso in recognition of how all EU countries should feel?

Until Germany starts talking about its national wealth as European wealth one must question their vision of a fiscally united Europe.

And that is going to happen when? hahahahahahaha

When Europe is under complete German control....

Until then Angela will do her best at paying homage to her neighbors generally and the new French president specifically

What, is she going to ask Russia to join the EU?

Fastest "highly anticipated" press-conference in a while; getting harder for her to keep a straight face?

She forgot to mention anything about printing or Eurobonds.  I'm sure they will be back on in a few minutes to announce those...

The Real Reason Why Global Markets Are Melting Down
.
With global stock markets in turmoil, gold on the move, and panic in Europe, today Michael Pento, of Pento Portfolio Strategies, writes exclusively for King World News to let readers know exactly why markets are melting down. Here is what Pento had to say about the situation: “Most investors and market pundits continue to misdiagnose the reason behind the worldwide economic malaise. The underlying problem isn’t ‘uncertainty’ or any other platitudes Wall Street and politicians like to offer. The truth is that massive sovereign debt defaults (if central banks allow them to be written down honestly) are very deflationary in nature.”

"The carnage all began when Irish and Southern
European banks became insolvent due to non-performing real estate assets. Then the sovereigns borrowed so much money, in order to bail out the banks, that their economies have become insolvent. Now banks find themselves insolvent once again … this time because they own the debt of bankrupt countries that were shoved down their throat by the ECB’s LTROs.

So we now have a situation where insolvent nations are trying to bail out insolvent banks by proposing to borrow more money, which will cause the countries to become even more insolvent. Then, of course, banks are asked to lower their country’s borrowing costs by buying more of the debt issued from insolvent nations. Doesn’t that sound like it will work out well?

If you can believe it, that is the proposed magic bullet to save Europe. Once it fails, look for the ECB, Fed and BOJ to launch another massive money printing spree. Each and every worsening piece of economic data brings us closer to that eventuality. That is the reason why gold soared $65 per ounce on Friday. Gold is signaling the helicopters are just over the horizon. " ...

Since it is the Banksters' best interests to keep the Euopean banking system working, I expect that they will find a way to cobble some sort of bank union.  It will be complex, opaque, nearly unregulated, and naturally, be backstopped by the tax payers in the Eurozone.  They will even find a way to end-run Germany's objections to Eurobonds, if it suits their purposes.  I have complete faith in Banksters.

Eurobonds will have an "opt-out" feature. Germany will be the only one able to opt out everyone else will be forced to swallow the bonds.

This fits with the kick the can to stupid land and allows for the euro to be saved. Yay.

Gigantor's picture

The EU is about 12 months behind the times and each of these "meetings to discuss future possibilities" do nothing but confirm that.

The problem is to much debt, to many insolvent banks, to much spending.

 

No plan put forward does anything to else even one of the above problems. Not even close.

You know things are coming unglued again when the word "summit" starts getting thrown around again which basically means...please don't crash the market while we try to throw you some essentially worthless headlines about throwing good money after bad.

They know they're fucked. The BIG one is coming.

Germany is surrounded by armies of bankers and European politicians that want BLOOD from every German man, woman and child.

Let the BLOODLETTING commence - AGAIN.

Germany has ONE CHANCE. That chance is to PULL OUT of all treaties with the UK, US, Zion FIAT cabal and form an axis with Russia and China.

Thanks for playing everyone. Come back when you can afford to buy the Mercedes, BMW and Audi with REAL money.

Ahhhh yes, go historical with the Jew/German angle and ignore the reality & fact that Germany effectively gave Israel subs capable of throwing nukes from a place Arab states & terrorist organizations will NEVER be able to touch....

The historical significance of "nazi" Germany being the provider to Israel of the ONLY untouchable nuke delivery system known to man, is lost on the "genius" of candy-@ss 99%ers who think their prowess on X-Box translates to their anarchist libertarian fantasies.

No Euros please we're British's picture

But, but you're forgetting the "secret" EU meeting. You know the one where Merkel agrees to everything and everything gets fixed and everyone sits around smoking hopium and lives happily ever after. The one the European markets have rumoured for this week, or sometime soon(ish).
