BBC Speechless As Trader Tells Truth: "The Collapse Is Coming...And Goldman Rules The World"

Tyler Durden's picture


In an interview on BBC News this morning that left the hosts gob-smacked (google it... it is the BBC after all), Alessio Rastani outlines in a mere three-and-a-half-minutes what we all know and most ignore. While the whole interview is worth watching, the money shot for us was "This economic crisis is like a cancer, if you just wait and wait hoping it is going to go away, just like a cancer it is going to grow and it will be too late!". While he dreams of recessions, sees Goldman ruling the world, and urges people to prepare, it is hard to disagree with much (or actually anything) of what he says and obviously interventions and machinations means we will have days like this (in Silver for instance), there is only one endgame here and we hope there is less hopeful euphoria (and more preparedness) as we pull back the curtain further and further.

While we do not know who this trader is, one thing we can be 100% certain of is that he will never appear on CNBC.

The collapse is coming, and we must not only ready ourselves for it, we must get ahead of it so to take the system back from the criminal banking syndicate.

Our war is a spiritual war.  We are here to regain our freedom and sovereignty.  We will use any means necessary.

We will speak truth to power.  We will write truth to power.  And we will take back what is rightfully ours. 

Ours is our labor, for it is ours and only ours.  We will not be taxed on such, for it is our inalienable right to keep our fruits when we so choose. 

Ours is our wealth, for it is ours when we so choose.

What they have done, what the criminal syndicate has done, is to manipulate the minds of our brothers and sisters into believing their lies.  Their ways are tricky, and the outcome is treacherous.  Now our brothers and sisters need our help, and we must to help ourselves.

Now we will take back our wealth, and take back our freedom, and take back our sovereignty.  We will do this all at once.  We will take back our wealth as we know it by taking back the money supply.  We will take back our freedom and sovereignty by speaking and writing and protesting the lies of the criminal syndicate.

Now we march to the drums of our forefathers, and their families, who gave their lives for us!  Now we take back the system that was created as an ideal.  Now we make the idea whole.

End the Fed!

Buy silver!

Let me guess, he is long on euro banks because bankers got inside info on greek bailout bond news and/or more money printing. Then comes on BBC (not even CNBC) to tell the dumb money to sell equities and buy the dollar so he can buy equities and sell tresuries?


Plus Goldman is so 2009, it is JP Morgan who has obama's ears now. And neither banks rule the world. The owners behind the banks do see Rothchilds and Rockefellers

Germany at war over Eurozone bail-out - Telegraph


Confirmation of the talks, however, sparked outrage in Germany, where opposition politicians threatened to derail the plans by voting against a key amendment to the bail-out fund this Thursday. The head of Germany’s constitutional court also piled on the pressure by warning the government not to circumvent the law “by the back door”.

Nope. Very simple. Excited sociopath. He wasn't whistle blowing. He wasn't trying to warn anyone. He doesn't care that Goldman Sachs (as a representative of the banking cartels) runs the government. He is just excited at the sheer scale of the wanton destruction.

Jack, it's a trade off. He got on BBC to tell a few (intimidating) truths, so people can "prepare" buying the oh so safe treasury bonds.

Or who else will feed the govt safe?

Most people on UK can tell you about the British market campaing to levy people into treasury bonds. Even huge alphabetic game-cube toys were deployed in public gardens forming the word "B O N D S".

My guess is that they don't mind reinforcing the idea that Goldman is all powerful, and to have a guy or two exposing some "controversial" opinion in exchange for that. So that was not a slip IMO.

It's a CYA move so that the BBC can say they told everyone so -- after the fact.  

This fella would not be on CNBC for the simple reason that there would be an octobox with other people talking over him at his first micro-second pause.   Bastards don't allow for intelligent conversation or the exposition of a complete idea.    I hate all the cable "news" stations for this very reason.   Guests are always hurried in and out the door with little time for thesis development.   I dislike Charlie Rose for talking over his guests but at least he allows 20 minutes or more for discussion.

He is sabotaging the government plans, and ensuring the banks walk away with the prize.  This is ironically going to be a self-fulfilling prophecy, because he's undermining the credibility of the opponent.  He ensures governments look like chumps, and banks look like the bright light, when in fact, it's the banks sabotaging governments.  Euro is ridiculed, Dollar is pumped, and the war on nation states continues.


No one should be asking how he got to speak so freely, everyone should be asking what the fuck is the master plan, now that we have this piece of the puzzle.  Are the "elite" going to destroy bonds, treasuries, and dollar, or are they going to destroy Europe and the Euro, or maybe all of them, so that the populace is further destroyed by the scam? 


I don't trust this guy one bit... even if he sounds evil and maniacal. '...I don't care about people, I'm a trader, and all I care about is profit.  Let the world burn down, even in a burning world, there's profit...if you ignore the human suffering...'  Go fuck yourself ass-hat.


Whose bonds and treasuries should I buy?  And the $, please.  Every fucking bond / treasury is a risk right now, and gold and silver is where it's at. They're destroying gold and silver because it would put an end to their fucking games.  SO buy gold and silver bullion... it's the only weapon that has already gained supporters.

Perhaps this was simply a matter of dropping all pretense and speaking curtly.  In other words, he was keeping it real.  This was expositionary, not exhibitionary.  At least that's how I read it.

If he turns up dead with "self-inflicted" gunshot wounds to the back of the head then we would definitely know he was not part of the script.

I don't beleive this either. All of the sudden he is allowed to say:

1. Goldman rules the world not goverment

2. I want to help people, buy tbonds and dolar

3. In the next 12 months people is going to lose everything from the next crash...

Why he never mention gold and silver as a safe heaven?

Why is he acussing Goldman so openly? 

Why is he giving a time frame

Is the guy is found dead so maybe he said the truth, if not he is sending people to take the wrong bet.

He is a permabear with nice hair.  His TA of PMs was very good and he does have some credibility that he called it before it happened.  He sees support for gold at 1600 and silver at 26.47 and will go long if the metals show strength around those levels.  It appears he is bullish long term on PMs at first glance.

THis is based location, searfch history, top sites, web browser, operating system, etc. There are 19 unique individual critiera that they use....

Rick Santorum ha complained to Google about gay groups getting the top of page one when you search his name.  I tried it - it is true. The searches are manipulated.  It may not be google because others could manipulate the search if they know what they are doing but Google helps or looks the other way.  Fact.

Not saying that search results aren't rigged (they absolutely are), but in this case, it was a personal vendetta by Dan Savage due to Santorum's repeated anti-gay comments.

From wikipedia:

"Savage subsequently asked his readers to coin a definition for "santorum" which would offend the Senator, announcing the winner as "the frothy mixture of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex"."

As far as I'm concerned, Santorum had it coming.

Nothing makes sense in the comments board. I love the ZeroHedge analysis but pers usual on the Internet, the comment section is filled with the biggest group of freaks, paranoid psychotics, crazy uncles that everyonne laughs at it in real life, etc. I think ZeroHedge takes the edge over Business Insider with the % of paranoid and completely insane and non-sensical comments. I wonder how the authors feel about their comments section getting hijacked by the Irrationati, but I suspect that hey a pageview is a pageview and they are more than happy to profit off of the most mentally ill members of our internet community.... Its comical, actually.

But it wouldnt be zero hedge without the freaks, misfits, and paranoid vrowd. You gotta love our psychos! We have the greatest variety of any blog. Jesus freak second comers, schizophrenics, manics, survivalists, gold buggers, and even an alien invasion comet freak.

One of these days one of these whacked out paranoid types will give us a real heads-up warning that turns out to be true. And you will have heard it first on zero hedge!

These days you're just a realist. I hate to admit it but I'm beginning to think this collapse is going to come sooner than we think. Look at the Dow rise today on dogshit news. How long is the rest of the world going to put up with our holier than thou comments about the Eurozone getting it's debt under control. I would love to see "Fuck off" guy give it to Geithner just once. He'd probably piss right in his pants.

I'm a silverbug doomer survivalist too.  I was just wondering out loud with a couple of colleagues who I've managed to brainwash into my type of thinking...

Let's say I buy some land, farm, well water, etc.  I survive, but the vast majority of people do not. Who else will survive?  I'm going to say: the evil mother fuckers, the dirtiest, meanest, most ruthless people you probably don't want to meet.  I'm going to say: the mercenaries and the elites, the thugs, the bullies, the gangs, drug lords, mafia, warlords... why would they not survive. They will take everything from anyone, the weak will just be killed off by these roving nut jobs.

I'm still going to try to safeguard myself somewhere quiet, but I have no illusions about the world during the collapse and the results of such a collapse. :/


Good luck friend.

Look at Russia post the Soviet Union.  Nothing really changed that much.  Same intelligence GRU and intel goons with the guns at the top of the heap.   The scum  elites will be able to afford the mercs after reboot.    I hope it might get better but I doubt it will.  The billionaire banking clans will still be on top or hiding in Europe or somewhere.  They are like f**king rats and cockroaches.

Yeah but doing integers got old.  The only positive thing it reminded me of my hot female teacher in 11th grade junior year when we were doing our times tables and long division.

Multiplication and long division in 11th grade?  Don't you mean 4th grade?  Or was that 1875?  Rural Alabama? :D

And I hated that stupid math question because even though I have a degree in finance after advanced math and two sections of stats I still managed to fuck it up about half the time.  Yeh, it is OK to tell the truth sometimes. 

By the way, did anybody notice that the day after this video was posted here the Dow was up by almost 3%, and this morning the market is up another 2.5% on the opening bell?  That is 5% (1/20th for those that insist on math question first thing in the fucking morning) and the market cap of 20 trillion means that a trillion has flooded into the NYSE in the last five trading hours.  Now go look at commodities and notice even more money has flooded that trading sector.  And the CAC?  DAX?  Asia?  Oh and it looks as if there was found about $2.7 trillion laying around just waiting to get used as a EuroTARP.  I say Timmy went to the EZ and gave a direct order, spend your way out ala American bailouts or else.  Oh yes, if you do the US Treasury/Fed has your back, we will backstop all new bailouts.  Carrot an stick you see.
