Listen to the Secret Goldman Recordings

By -

Goldman Sachs, as is widely known, is the most venal and amoral organization in corporate America. They will stop at absolutely nothing to line their already very packed pockets, although doctors across the land were able to save some cash on vomit-inducing drugs by instead showing them the cheesy Goldman Sachs ads from 2010 touting how they were doing God’s Work for the nation.

Of course, in this politically-correct culture of ours, people are too nervous to dare criticize Goldman, lest they be accused of being you-know-what. NPR, to their credit, has put together a sensational hour of secret recordings (drawn from nearly 48 hours of raw audio) that were made illustrating, in no uncertain terms, how utterly captured the U.S. “regulators” at the Fed are who work at (or, more accurately, for) Goldman Sachs. It is well worth your time to listen to this piece. It will make you mad, and although the nation’s anger isn’t enough to remove this black-hearted cancer of a company from the planet, it’s at least worthwhile to be better-informed.

The 4C’s That Never Happened – And Those That Did

By -

We didn’t get what I first postulated yet, what we did might be even more illuminating.

In my earlier article the 4C’s I set up the premise that if a Yes vote took place in Scotland there were possible ramifications within the markets than what was being expressed, as well as reported, throughout the financial media.

Well it turns out the cause for any worry has now been voted and booted away so far down the road it would make a can envious. However, what did we really get?

In my opinion we might have been shown there is even far more need to be concerned, for once again, the powers that be have seemingly demonstrate they truly are – the one’s in control. (more…)

Jackie DeAngelis Blows

By -

I was originally going to title this post “Jackie DeAngelis Must Die”, but I thought she might take it the wrong way.

Anyway, earlier this week, Ms. DeAngelis “interviewed” famed short-seller Bill Fleckenstein on (gack, choke) CNBC, every permabull’s favorite network. Right out of the gate, she attacked him:

0919-bitch

 

You can watch the interview at the bottom of this page if you want, but I can save you the time by simply stating Mr. Fleckenstein was ambushed by a trio of CNBC permabulls, deriding him for missing out on the past five years of market rally. (more…)

Slope on the Silver Screen

By -

I’m a movie buff, a Woody Allen fan, and a lover of analogs, so it’s remarkable it took me this long to make the connection between Slope of Hope and the clip below. There’s no need to over-explain it, but think of me in the role of Woody Allen, Iggy as the part of the conductor, and you can fill in the rest of the Sloper names with the other passengers on the train. As for the party train on which I gaze forlornly – – – maybe that’s the CNBC car.

FED Water-Boy Hilsenramp Carries the FOMC Gatorade

By -

Yesterday, The Wall Street Journal dove head first into the deep end of the interactive social media swimming pool. During their FOMC pregame show, they punctually trotted out Johnny Waterboy Hilsenrath via SpreeCast, the sparkling new-media darling interactive webcast platform, to serve up another fresh jug of spiked reinvigorating Gatorade to his favorite NY Stock Market team.
