Rothschild Is Now In TBTF Plunge Protection Business

Tyler Durden's picture

Paging Ray Parker Jr. with a remix request:

When some evil fund,

Is out there shorting you

Who you gonna call?

Why, Rothschild!

Following the already failed attempt by captured pan-European regulators to stop the local bank Friend-o treatment by instituting a short-selling ban, whose effectiveness as we pointed out lasted, oh, about 7 days, we find just what Plan B is. And, yes, Rothschild is involved. From the WSJ: "Societe Generale SA, whose shares have come under severe pressure in recent weeks, said Tuesday that it had signed a liquidity contract with Rothschild & Cie. to prevent excessive volatility in its stock price." That's right: Rothschild is now in the Plunge Protection business. And they all have the ECB to thank for it: after years of not learning from the New York Fed-Citadel Joint Venture, which "never" steps in at precisely the right time (wink wink), they have opened the market for third party PPT incursions. It only seems fitting that the bank that started it all, would step in and fill the void. Because after all if SocGen falls, Rothschild will sooner or later follow. That said, the official explanation is worth its weight in laughter: "The idea is not to keep the stock price high, but rather to keep it steady" a representative for Societe Generale said. After hearing such... brilliance... what really is there to say?

From the WSJ:

Societe Generale shares were hammered Aug. 10 amid unfounded rumors about its financial position after a British tabloid published an article alleging that the bank was in a "perilous" state. Its shares have lost 44% over the past month; at one point on Aug. 10 its stock was down more than 20%. The bank has called the rumors ludicrous and has underscored its strong financial position.


Analysts said that liquidity contracts in France are relatively common. Twenty-one of the CAC-40 companies have liquidity contracts with various financial institutions to prevent excessive volatility in their stock price. Rothschild has seven such contracts with CAC-
40 companies, including with GDF Suez.


Companies in France are allowed to buy and sell their own shares to prevent swings in prices, although the activity is regulated by French market regulator Autorite des Marches Financiers. According to a Paris-based analyst, Societe Generale until 2009 had a liquidity contract with one of its subsidiaries.


Analysts said the arrangement with Rothschild won't necessarily insulate the stock against big moves.

Well, unless Rothschild somehow found a way to avoid "the inevitable" from occurring, we would say we agree with that assessment 100%. But first, blogs which "plant" stories are sure to take the blame. That, or Dubya. After that, we go bidless.

I am a jew.

I come from a large family of Eastern European Jews.

Some observant, some not.


It is racist, anst-semtic, 3rd reich scapegoating, CRAP.

I believe in free speech. I try and stay out of ignorant, racist, lowest common denominator debates. However, if i believe that the debate has become disrespectful, to Zerohedge and what it stands for, i will have the debate temporarily halted. That is not a threat, it is a statement.


Let that be a Lesson to ALL! of You Goy Slaves! It is a Statement! of Authority!

Freedom of Speech!

And Censorship of the Truth!

Are at her finger tips!


Honestly! You Goy Slaves should have known better than to Anger Your Owner Lizzy!


If this sounds familiar! Here is why! Barbra Specter and Lizzy have that same “Jewish Authority over the Rest of us Goys!” We Goys can be silenced whenever it suits our Jewish Masters! And that is NOT! a Threat.. Per Lizzy! That is a Statement! See the video below and see if you can as well recognize the similarity between Barbra and Lizzy? Maybe Lizzy is Barbra? Who knows.


and for those of you wanting to know.. TruthInSunshine

 shares these views of Lizzy’s! and backs up Lizzy’s power to Silence the Goy Slaves! Truth be Damned!


Given the Fact that Lizzy has used Lobby Dollars with Tyler.. to provide herself with a Bully pulpit! And of course more sway than the rest of us.. Because of the Lobby Dollars.. I would implore you Goy Slaves to behave.. shy away from the Facts and the Truth for fear of being politically incorrect by AIPAC’s Standards!


It should be as well noted that Tyler has been threatened with a Law Suit for Liable! By the Jewish Lobby here at ZeroHedge!


The Truth it seems will not set you free! With regard to your Jewish Owners!


Let this be a lesson to ALL of You Goy Slaves!


Let us ALL! try to NOT! get Tyler or Fight Club in any Trouble.. even if the FACTS! Are being put forth for discussion!


Thank You for Your Time!


P.S. You will notice that 50,000 plus reads and over 600 comments later that Lizzy Allowed the Goy Slaves to have their Rant! LULZ!!

always have the jew anti-semite card ready to pull, eh?  the jews have been fucking us for thousands of years, then my ancesters save them in WWII and what thanks do we get, more fucking in the ass.  same ol same ol.

zenbones's picture

Yeah, I used to think it was crazy to think jews had any influence until I realized that there were a lot of -bergs, -steins, etc running things.  Then I read about Aaron of Lincoln.  Wait a minute!  I thought the king was the supreme ruler.  You mean he needed a financier who, by coincidence happened to be jewish.  Then I read about the expulsion of jews and it got me thinking.  Did they expell them because they have big noses?  Probably not.  There must of been something seething underneath to cause that.  Then I read that jews became involved in finance because the guilds of the time wouldn't let them become tradesmen and blacksmith, etc.  Now does that make sense to you?  We don't want them to become a simple tradesmen so we'll let them control our finances.  Yeah, makes perfect sense.

Judging from zerohedge reader comments/up-down-arrows - c.a 70% of zerohedge readers are either anti-semites and or U.S./Anglo-leveraged-evil-empire deniers.

Who are the biggest leverage players?

Duh - knuckleheads - ultra leverage is called the Anglo-Saxxon Method for a reason.

The scum of the world is the Anglos. I know, bacause I am one.

Grow up all you homegrown pseudo-nazi U.S. hegemons. Own your fucking scumminess. Cowards.

Hive Raid's picture

"ultra leverage is called the Anglo-Saxxon Method for a reason."

Yeah, for the same reason that:

Money Printing is called Quantitative Easing

A Jew Private Bank is called The Federal Reserve

World War II is called the Holocaust

Historical Fact is called anti-Semitism


You're no kin of mine. Here's your Anglo Saxxon method:

WALTER CRICK, British Manufacturer, in the NORTHAMPTON DAILY ECHO, March19. 1925)

 "Jews can destroy by means of finance. Jews are International. Control of credits in this country is not in the hands of the English, but of Jews. It has become the biggest danger the British Empire ever had to face."

HARRINGTON, LORD. 19th century British statesman. Opposed admissionof Jewish immigrants to England because:

"They are the great moneylenders and loan contractors of the world... The consequence is that the nations of the world are groaning under heavy systems of taxation and national debt. They have ever been the greatest enemies of freedom. (Speech in the House of Lords, July 12, 1858)


BEAMISH, HENRY H. 20th century British publisher.

"There is no need to be delicate on this Jewish question. You must face them in this country. The Jew should be satisfied here. I was here forty-seven years ago; your doors were thrown open and you were then free. Now he has got you absolutely by the throat - that is their reward. " (New York speech, October 30, 1937)

WASHINGTON, GEORGE, in Maxims of George Washington by A. A. Appleton& Co.

"They (the Jews) work more effectively against us, than the enemy's armies. They are a hundred times more dangerous to our liberties and the great cause we are engaged in... It is much to be lamented that each state, long ago, has not hunted them down as pest to society and the greatest enemies we have to the happiness of America."

In stead of piling dusty and blatantly racist quotes - try to answer some real questions:

Why are the world's hedge-funds and oligarchs centered in London?

Does not the English/Anglo system welcome them?

Are English governments typically composed of Jews?

Was derulating Maggie T. a jew?  Is Cameron?

Why are English government AND UK banksters ALWAYS jointly fighting EU banking regulations?

Answer these questions - and you will see that the USUKs (US+UK, my term) - sure, along with jewish banksters, because jews historically ran banking due to being barred from land ownership, run the globalist world of leveraged fiat financial terrorism.

The Point: A) banksters are of no single race or creed and B) who cares what color they are.

I.E. - it is leveraged, fractional reserve banking itself (privately owned or not), which is evil, not the cultural or ethnic groups at large from whom banksters arise.

Eureka - Why are the world's hedge-funds and oligarchs centered in London?

YOu need to look into the "City of London", no ... not London, England actually, I'm talking about the square mile w/i London.  Some/all? English law does not apply.  Warrents for debt can not be served for example.  The Queen for example, can not enter w/o permission. 

The Vatican w/i Rome is some what of an analogy.


You are clearly operating under some unfortunate, but understandable delusions.  Educate yourself.

The business has at least three usages, depending on the scope the singular usage to mean a particular organization, the generalized usage to refer to a particular market sector, the music business and compound forms such as agribusiness, and the broadest meaning, which encompasses all activity by the community of suppliers of goods and services. Thanks.

The earthquake was reported to be 100 miles south of Washington DC. Local residents say it sounded like a freight train coming to a stop. In related news, Washington residents report hearing a deep rumbling sound in the sky, shortly after the earthquake, that sounded like "Damn, I missed!"

There seriously need to be a national hunting season for 'economics professors'!!

Economics professors are the capstone for the greatest "extraordinary popular delusion" in human history, i.e., that greed is good:

Unfortunately, the historical consequences of this miscalculation will cost most of us everything, but the schmucks at least got nice offices and lax work hours before their stupidity blew the world up.

Not a Bad Business to be in

Many countries are signatories to international treaties concerning intellectual property, and thus companies registered in these countries are subject to national laws bound by these treaties. In order to protect trade secrets, companies may require employees to sign non compete clauses which will impose limitations on an employees interactions with stakeholders, and competitors. Thanks.

The Washington monument is no longer in perfect alignment with the obelisks at the Vatican and other ones at strategic locations. This means the mystery power the Illuminati/Bilderberg believe they possess and draw their power from, no longer works.

so let's say that is so (and it appears to be true)


what  does the Book of Revelations say? I am not familiar with the text.

pesamystik's picture

Not all of you Jews get to feast at the table. However, Jewish household incomes are the highest in the country.

Second, Jews are overwhelmingly disproportionately represented in finance. Our last two Fed reserve chairmans were Jewish, and Greenspan was there since Reagan. The CFTC is headed by a Jew, Gensler. The SEC is headed by a Jew, Schapiro. I could go on, but these are the key positions in finance right now. When the gentile Brooksly Born tried to put an end to the uncontrolled deregulation, the three Jewish dynamos, Rubin, Summers, and Greenspan, squashed her down. Here we are today, and Jews still run the asylum.

How about you take your stereotyping and scapegoating, and go fuck yourself?


Thank you for your time.

Sudden Debt's picture

Don't wind yourself up about stereotyping.

Look, I'm from Belgium and the Stereotype of Beglium people is that we're smarter than everybody else, stronger, richer, a lot more attractive than the rest of Europeans...

So how do you think we feel when we walk the streets when on vacation and people throw themselves at our feet to kiss them?


but do I complain about that stereotyping even as it's endangering my life? No, I don't. So you should stop to.


theMAXILOPEZpsycho's picture

Belgians are hot sure - but I haven't heard this.

I consider women from the south of france to be more attractive (and i'm moving there next month!) Also polish, lithuanian, and greek babes.

Sudden Debt's picture

skip the greek once and all is true.

They're nice yes, but a bit simple. Sure the French, Polish and Lithuanian woman look good but I like to have a normal conversation with a woman to.


theMAXILOPEZpsycho's picture

Greek babes are the most under-rated in europe IMHO. Like others have been saying thats where I'll be heading to open up my brothel once their economy turns to dust and bullion goes to the moon.

Belgian womenfolk:

(a) NEVER identify themselves as "Belgian".  They pretend to be "Swiss" or "Swedish" or "Dutch".

(b) Irrespective of (a), one  is always able to identify them physically, by the disproportionate cheeks.


No, I am not smiling.  Turn the other cheek, so as to speak.......

This Belgium stereotype is only shared by other 'Belgians' (or I should say Flemish, French and German speaking inhabitants of Belgium). Although on the plus side it is very clever of them not having a government that can actually make major decision for what about 14 months now after the elections?

Don't know how proud you should be of being 'Belgian' if your most famous inhabitant is Manneke Pis (a little boy peeing)

he beer is very good though and after consuming plenty, so are the women in Belgium.



Michael's picture

You can take solace in the fact the overwhelmingly disproportionately represented Jews in finance, will also be overwhelmingly represented in the unemployment line when their banking system and Wall Street collapses in the complete and total economic collapse of the USA and the entire world.

Id fight Gandhi's picture

They do disproportionally make up a major % of the financial world. While the race/religion stuff aside, it's its own "club." so deals, favors, backing are going on.

What they fail to so is keep in check the ones who bend the rules and make waves, they defend them. They should set a higher standard for themselves and work to be more respected instead of distained.

Just sayin

Spirit Of Truth's picture

The bottom line is this.  The Jews have turned their back on the God of Israel out of love for the false god of Mammon (money).  They are in breach of their covenant with God.  The "Promised Land" is thus no longer promised:


Fed Supporter's picture

I think you might want to do little more research.  God is not done with his chosen people.  Israel is God's time piece and his focus returns to them once the time of the Gentiles is fulfilled.  Jesus returns to Jerusalem and will rule from the new Jerusalem.  All nations will seek out a Jew to find an escort to Israel.

HedgetBedgadget's picture

What makes you think that this "new Jerusalem" will be the actual Jerusalem from Israel?

I might be Vancouver Canada, though I highly doubt it.

I saw a stat on the Economist, stating that in Europe the countries that believe in the existence of God, in great percentage are: Ireland, Portugal, Spain, Greece (eurozone) and Romania (this is the country that is at the top of the list, probably 80% of the population believes there is a God, and not in the eurozone), Poland (not in the eurozone, doing good now but probably waiting it's economic bubble to burst). Data for the graph I believe was from the Eurostat.

It's interesting that these countries are financially attacked now by the Jewish-controlled Anglo financial system.

Maybe the new Jerusalem will be Bucharest, or maybe Athens (or Mount Athos) or Madrid, or Lisbon.


Why would God chose Jerusalem?
