Grauniad Rejected - Germany Denies All Rumors

Tyler Durden's picture


Nobody could have possibly foreseen that the Guardian was literally pulling BS out of its ass:


Have fun with this lunatic, patently fake news driven shitshow that the "market" has become. We are out.


Turns out it doesn't.


From Reuters:

Germany says did not discuss EU bond buying plan at G20 summit

There was no discussion at a G20 summit in Mexico this week about using Europe's rescue funds to buy up the bonds of stricken members of the euro zone, a German government official said.

British media reports on Tuesday said German Chancellor Angela Merkel was poised to use Europe's dual bailout funds, known as the EFSF and ESM, to buy up the debt of countries like Italy and Spain and had discussed the plans at the summit.

"Secondary market bond purchases are one of many instruments available to the EFSF and ESM," a German government official told Reuters, speaking on condition of anonymity.

But he added: "There was no discussion here in Los Cabos about any concrete intitiatives" related to such purchases.

In reality, it's not the "world vs. Germany" on eurobonds or German taxpayer gifting of trillions (now and in the future) to the PIIGS+U.K.

In reality, it is the two financial capitals of cancerous fractional reserve central bank dependant 'member banks,' who are stuffed to the gills with the 'sovereign bonds' of the PIIGS, and consequently need another multi-trillion dollar bailout (the biggest to date).

So, it's New York & London (represented by Cameron and Obama, both funded, backed and, consequently, carrying water for Goldman, JP Morgan, Barclays, etc) vs German taxpayers.

The U.S. President and British Prime Minister, both bought and paid for puppets of Wall Street & London Lords of Finance, need to vacuum up the northern europeans' savings and pledge their future wealth, so as to allow Wall Street & London institutions to extend and pretend as they continue to bleed capital, using northern european money to plug holes in their sinking vessels - which will inevitably capsize anyways (but the Captains and crews want to silently steal the remaining lifeboats in the middle of the night).

It's like that subjective bullshit statement; "it's a crisis of confidence". No, it's an objective crisis of sovereigns not having enough money to pay their national debts and the whole system being bankrupt.

Sorta. It's an objective crisis of sovereigns whose politicians and leaders sold out their people to the banks for the promise of eternal spending when instead what they got was eternal debt.

But yes, the whole stinking global system is bankrupt.

Of course Germany has learned to blitz the French trench-digging.  It is so transparently a PR war of rumors and pressure by France, its indentured servants Spain and Italy, and a part of The City which wants joint-and-several liability for its euro-zone credits...against Germany.  It is high time Holland, Sweden, Denmark, and Austria spoke up on Germany's behalf. I note FM Borg of Sweden has started to, as well as some of the others.  The issue is serious and the outcome will be momentous.  Yielding to France's transparent ploys would be the wrong answer for the entire north. No?

The Guardian report must be a bad joke. There is simple now way the Merkel could make such a move without asking the German parliament and other eurozone countries. Furthermore, today the Court of the Constitution bitch-slapped the German government for not informing the parliament sufficiently when negotiating the ESM. So there is no way that Merkel could decide such things on her own.

Amazing that this obvious misleading of the public is not being looked into by regulators.. Ehm.. I can't believe I said that. The only joke bigger than the media is the regulators. That said: Democracy is such a wonderful thing. Now let's all take responsility and blame ourselves a minute for electing mass producers of lies with small pea brains and hardly any spine. Why do we have to be so stupid that we only vote for people wanting to give away money that doesn't exist? NO ONE would vote for an austerity swinging, let's roll up the sleeves and work real hard (for moderate pay) kind of guy or gal. Let's just all be honest about that.


Thanks to Zerohedge for being one of the very few on the frontline of financial sanity in these crazy crazy times.


Now; let's just wait and see if the markets, the obviously manipulated media and regulators can drive this to the ground finally so we get a reset and new chances. Hopefully without any bloodshed in Europe or anywhere else. I am just afraid we won't learn. If there is one thing history shows it is that we never learn from our mistakes.

Of course Germany is going to try to bail out all of Europe!  Then China and Japan will try, then the US will try and they will all fail. Those in charge just keep taking more and more power and nobody does anything to stop them. Oh, but, oh my, look at how wonderful the results are! Greece has been fixed! Ireland is an island paradise! Portugal has never had more time for siestas. Spain is grooving along now that the ESM/ESEFLMOPQRSTUVWXYZ has come to relieve them of their suffering. And the US powers have really made it wonderful, while breaking every record in the book for borrowing and spending they keep the balloon sinking slowly rather than collapsing. Nothing will stop these people until, we the people, force them out and I don't think we have the character to do it....

I heard that Marvel's Avengers were offering a bail out plan.

True I just made this one up as well, but if we say it often enough everything will be solved...and if not - expect a 1% stock jump tomorrow morning. If nothing else, that should be tradable. In which case, if we come with a rumour per day, we can get the Dow up a 1000 in less than three years. Even better, we can get the hero's to sign off the Eurobonds!!! Imagine owning a Greek bond signed by Thor God of Thunder 


As usual, I expect the consulting sum of only £2000 - way cheaper than a G20 convention that delivers nothing.

Please forward your money to my Nigerian account




PS I have a bridge for sale!! Wanna look? Just remember its going fast - I have 19 signed up already, only the German is holding out, so this deal will go fast!!

Dam, bit-chezzz, we could make up all kinds of rumours and seed them thruout the internets!

"Obama to give 1 Trillion$ to Euro."

"China buys USA."

"Spain, Greece and Italy merger on Tap."

No need for bailouts, rumors are free. More outrageouss the more they juice the markets.

Seriously though, Germany may lose more by not easing up on the Greeks. Call it a mortgage refi. Hell, we do millions of those is the US.

"Have fun with this lunatic, patently fake news driven shitshow that the "market" has become. We are out."

That is the most bearish statement I have seen since I started reading ZeroHedge.  Im initiating short ES.

Apparently this was the brainfart of the unelected ex-goldman Mario Ponzi err... Monti. But he has said crisis is over and Italy doesn't need help. He didn't lie, did he? LOL!

The same story is in another major UK newspaper, The Telegraph:

all part of the false mirrors in the anglo-german stand-off. Psy war and false bulletins before the purported ECB blitzkreig and the FED operation twist or more. Next venue is the June 28 Euro meeting during which France and Germany have to tighten their last round of tit for tat, before Merkel makes her final make or break call...In July the deal, one way or the other, has to be in place for Greece and for Spain/Italy.
