Monti is...




No matter what the face of leadership, POLICIES of austerity (make middle class pay for the debts of past elites) will bring slavery (aka. global wage productivity) back in Rome.


It's not the type of advice you would usually expect from the head of an elite university. In an open letter to his son published last November, Pier Luigi Celli, director general of Rome's LUISS University, wrote, "This country, your country, is no longer a place where it's possible to stay with pride ... That's why, with my heart suffering more than ever, my advice is that you, having finished your studies, take the road abroad. Choose to go where they still value loyalty, respect and the recognition of merit and results."

The letter, published in Italy's La Repubblica newspaper

Here comes the new boss, worse than the old boss....We will be fooled again.

You'd think that nobody worse could come after Berlusca, then you get Full Monti. Then we'll think nobody worse could come after Full Monti, but hey - there's always a chance of another Mussolini.

Close Knucks,

Is Corzine going to replace him?

pain_and_soros's picture

I heard Joe Paterno is considering returing to Italy and running, at the special request of the Vatican...

Crowd in the live feed chanting Mafioso, Mafioso, Mafioso at one point...not sure if it was in derision or as a plea for....

kaiserhoff's picture

Is it just me, or is Corzine something that should be served with Chianti and a side salad?

This is bullish, right?


The trend is your friend's picture

good for at least a 3% s&p move on Monday.....because now we can finally have some change we can believe in.

Karl Tashjian's picture

Can't help but think you're right. Now the question is, will it be a 3% move up or down? Either way, it's moving.

oogs66's picture

sadly probably up, because now the people can get screwed even more but pretend it is all for the good

unky's picture

Yes, actually the EURUSD will move to 1.40 / or 3% higher. And the EURUSD which correlates nearly 100% with the S&P will pull the S&P up. Should actually be good for other risk trades too, such as silver.

Cool, like celebration in egypt when Mubarak resigned. Unfortunately the person which will replace Berlusconi is no different (except his taste for prostitutes maybe). The System is the problem, not a single "puppet" president

knukles's picture

If you,ve tasted one prostitute you've tasted them all.

Now, Ukranian tranny nurses owned by his buddy across the Med, that's something entirely different.
Sweet Jesus.

hath anyone, i say, anyone, done a taste test on janet napolitano, and not heaved for days?

Good God, man.  That's twisted by my standards.

"DUCE... DUCE...DUCE"! He made the global banksters run on time!

toady's picture

It's funny, all the stuff that this dude is accused of, and only now he is leaving...

Immunity deal, sure, but, golden parchute?

unky's picture

As long as the elite wants him to stay, he will stay. Now they decided its time to go for him

knukles's picture

Socail commentary:
(Besides holy shit it's fucked up)

Ever notice no matter where, the outgoing fucker, if alive, needs an immunity deal?
Something way the fuck very wrong.

Second thought:
Everywhere the pols are on the take big time.  Campaign contribtions, lobbying fees and charges, contracts, whatever...  And we all seem to figure that these amounts of moneys are "big" or "sizable".  Again, whatever.
But the way that TPTB in the US and Europe are willing to go to ANY LENGTHS to remain in power, to enslave entire nations, I mean commit Grand Theft Country to continue the scam...
I'm tellin' ya', the numbers, the absolute amount of wealth involved has to be astoundingly massive, incomprehensibele.
The actions are far to great to justify anything other.
The numbers nust be just astounding.  Unknown, and astounding.

And yet the people in the square seem to think this is some sort of victory.

Christ, all the puppet master did was change the puppet.

The looting will go on and on.

Were Nixon's memoirs translated into Italian?

Abitdodgie's picture

The police here in America (the Corporation) are here to protect one thing ,THE Corporation and to punish employee code breakers, if you have a social security number or a birth cert, you then are an employee of the Corporation from birth , that is why they tell you how to live . You gave up being one of "We The People" your sovereignty to the real United States of America ( you know the constitution) when your perents entered you into contract with a birth certificate to " United States" a corporation , so if you want to stop the system then take back your sovereignty and file your UCC-1 , and stop being a slave

No so live feed of the Mussolini resignation

and later Mussolini hanging out in the piazza

jmcadg's picture

Well now he can sit on the back benches with his mate and his ipad wanking over his next victim.

Or is that wanking off his mate!

You just gotta look for the upsides!

Ag1761's picture

Fabulous news, one more gangster puppet gone, now Italy will have a central bank puppet forced on them for the impending collapse and hyperinflation they and we all very well fucking deserve. I mean, wtf, look at all those young folk swaning around with their designer gear on (APR 29.9%) sipping vino not giving a toss about their country and futures being raped. Just fucking well wait a few months and most will be trading a $1000 designer jacket for a bag of pasta. Big bounce on Monday I think. Lets either hyperinflate this debt away and go to war or press the reset and see who falls.

How he managed to stay for 17 years is beyond me.

goodge's picture

He's not been there for 17 years! Been PM '94-'95, '01-'06, '08-'11. In the between there have been leftist PMs in charge. But yes, Berlusconi has been the only one able to keep a government running for longer than 8months!

Wow! Big Sis is going to run Italy;  TSA goons now molesting Europeans?  What?  Wrong Napolitano?


CrashisOptimistic's picture

The Euro will do what Italian bond yields say to do, and the S&P will do what the Euro does.

If the ECB doesn't buy Italian bonds on Monday, those yields will spike.  

Nothing has changed.

Maybe Obama can follow in a grand resignation?

Georgesblog's picture

Debt doesn't care who the politicians are. The one in office is the one the banks want. When politicians outlive their usefulness, they're scapegoated and thrown to the wolves. Perhaps his replacement will look so bad that his critics miss him.
