US and European debt markets flash new warning signals


By Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, International Business Editor
Last Updated: 6:40am BST 29/05/2008

The debt markets in the US and Europe have begun to flash warning signals yet again, raising fears that the global credit crisis could be entering another turbulent phase.

The cost of insuring against default on the bonds of Lehman Brothers, Merrill Lynch and other big banks and brokerages has surged over the last two weeks, threatening to reach the stress levels seen before the Bear Stearns debacle. Spreads on inter-bank Libor and Euribor rates in Europe are back near record levels......

.......Willem Sels, a credit analyst at Dresdner Kleinwort, said the banks are beginning to face waves of defaults on credit cards, car loans, and now corporate loans. "We believe we're entering Phase II. The liquidity crisis has eased a little, but the real credit losses are accelerating. The worst is yet to come," he said.

The jump in corporate bankruptcies has not yet been picked up by the usual indicators, which tend to lag the market, lulling investors into a false sense of security. The true losses are already known to specialists in the business, said Mr Sels.

Zahl der Selbstmorde beim US-Heer so hoch wie nie


Washington - Im vergangenen Jahr haben sich 115 Soldaten beim US-Heer das Leben genommen, das ist die höchste Zahl seit Beginn der Erhebungen 1980.

Wie die Army in Washington mitteilte, unternahmen fast tausend Soldaten Selbstmordversuche. Der Trend setze sich im laufenden Jahr fort, fügte die US-Army hinzu.

Hochrangige Vertreter der Streitkräfte räumten ein, dass lange und häufige Kampfeinsätze eine Hauptursache für Stress im Leben der Soldaten seien. Dennoch habe kein direkter Zusammenhang zwischen mehr Kampfeinsätzen und der Zahl der Selbstmorde festgestellt werden können.

Der demokratische Präsidentschaftsbewerber Barack Obama nannte die Zahlen eine "tragische Erinnerung an den erschreckenden und andauernden Preis des Irakkrieges, vor allem für unsere Soldaten und ihre Familien".

Army-Oberst Elspeth Ritchie räumte ein, dass die gegenwärtigen Konflikte die Soldaten besonders unter Druck setzten. "Es sind die langen und häufigen Einsätze fern der Heimat, die Begegnung mit fürchterlichen und schrecklichen Dingen, die leichte Verfügbarkeit geladener Waffen und, dass es im Moment sehr sehr viel zu tun gibt", sagte die Offizierin.

Deutsche Kanzlerin Merkel ein Stasi-Spitzel ?

Don, 29 Mai 2008 5 Sterne

War sie ein Stasi-Spitzel ?

RED.

Sankt Gallen/Berlin (29.05.2008) - Die Deutsche Kanzlerin soll als Stasi - Mitarbeiterin an Bespitzelungen des ehemaligen DDR Regimekritikers Robert Havemanns, im Jahr 1980 teilgenommen haben.

Robert Havemann erhielt 1965 ein Berufsverbot und wurde am 1. April 1966 aus der Akademie der Wissenschaften der DDR ausgeschlossen der auch Angela Merkel angehörte.. In den Folgejahren wurden von ihm zahlreiche SED-kritische Publikationen in Form von Zeitungsbeiträgen und Büchern (unter anderem Fragen Antworten Fragen; Robert Havemann: Ein deutscher Kommunist; Morgen) veröffentlicht.

1976 protestierte er gegen die Ausbürgerung des DDR-kritischen Liedermachers Wolf Biermann. Er tat dies in Form eines Briefes, den er an den Staatsratsvorsitzenden Erich Honecker gerichtet hatte und ließ den Brief im westdeutschen Nachrichtenmagazin Der Spiegel veröffentlichen. Im Jahr 1976 verhängte das Kreisgericht Fürstenwalde einen unbefristeten Hausarrest gegen Havemann (auf seinem Grundstück in Grünheide). Sein Haus und seine Familie (und auch die Familie seines Freundes Jürgen Fuchs, die er 1975 in sein Gartenhaus aufnahm) wurden rund um die Uhr von der Stasi überwacht.

Jugendliche im Alter von Angela Merkel haben die Stasiobservation am Grundstück rund um die Uhr übernommen. Zeitweise wurden bis zu 200 Stasiagenten auf das Grundstück angesetzt und ausser Hausarrest hatte Havemann seit 1976 mit einem gekappten Telefonanschluss zu leben. Die Überwachung kostete 740 000 DDR Mark.


Vor einigen Jahren plante man, in der Redaktion des Westdeutschen Rundfunks, den Bericht ” Im Auge der Macht- die Bilder der Stasi” und wollte über die Stasiarbeit recherchieren.

Die Redakteure stiessen dabei auf ein Foto, dass eine junge Frau, die sich um 1980 in dieser Zeit dem Grundstück der Familie Havemann in Grünheide bei Berlin näherte: Auf dem Foto soll ANGELA MERKEL zu sehen sein, die sich dem Grundstück Havemann in der Zeit der Observation und der Isolation von Havemann näherte.

Das vom WDR gefundene Merkel.Bild durfte nicht gesendet werden, weil Angela Merkel die Ausstrahlung des Fotos im WDR Film untersagt hatte.

Die Doku des WDR gibt es hier:

http://www.lernzeit.de/sendung.phtml?detail=612797

der entsprechende Vorabbericht des Spiegels und als Quellennachweis

http://www.spiegel.de/spiegel/vorab/0,1518,377389,00.html

Besonders spannend dürfte jetzt die Debatte um den PDS Abgeordneten Gregor Gysi werden.Viele Deutsche Medien sowie der CDU Generalsekretär Ronald Pofalla, fordern den Bundestags-Fraktionschefs Gregor Gysi auf, seine DDR-Vergangenheit nicht unter den Teppich zu kehren.Wir können gespannt sein, ob der Generalsekretär dies auch von seiner Chefin der Kanzlerin Angela Merkel verlangt.

Fatal in diesem Zusammenhang dürfte die Rolle des Boulevardblattes "Bild"sein.Hat man sich gerade richtig gut darauf eingeschossen Gregor Gysi seine Stasi Vergangenheit vorzuwerfen, muss "Bild"sich nun auf seine so geliebte Kanzlerin fokussieren, wenn man nicht mit zweierlei Maass messen will. Eine mit Stasi Vorwürfen belastete Kanzlerin dürfte allemal schwerer wiegen als ein Bundestags-Fraktionschef.

.. seltsam, dass die Bonner mit ihren

besser unter "Kontrolle" hatten – oder
auch bei der Aufklärung hätten sinnvoll
eintreten können, was nicht geschah.

Wie schon Herr U sagte, ist in einem System,
in dem jeder die Unwahrheit veröffentlicht,
niemand innerhalb des Systems geschädigt.

d.h. wir können alle Beteiligte unter Anklage
stellen, sie ( ohne Berufung ) verurteilen und
im Anschluss als Anti-Dopingexperten oder
Berater, vielleicht des BND, re-sozialisieren.

Ein quasi umgekehrter Weg der Stasi-Akteure
die nun im Bundestag, und dies nicht schlecht
honoriert, für moralische Tugenden plädieren.

Abgesehen von den Pfeifen, die gerade mit
erhobenem Zeigefinger von einem Skandal
sprechen, wohlwissentlich, dass der Daten-

...kleiner Auszug aus dem Merriman: Comments for the Week beginning June 2, 2008

Longer-Term Thoughts

Pluto will soon retrograde back in to Sagittarius after spending the past five months tipping its toe into Capricorn. We got a preview of what the next 15 years will be like, for Pluto will fully enter Capricorn in late November 2008, and remain there through 2023. During this period we can anticipate major fundamental changes in government, central banks, and financial markets, as discussed in great detail in an article I have posted on my web site at www.mmacycles.com. But we get break, a return to the issues of the prior 13 years, when Pluto retrogrades back to Sagittarius June 14-November 26. As Astrologer Michael Lutin portrayed in his play “Plutopia” and the UAC conference of May 15-20, Pluto in Capricorn has seemed like so much “bad, bad news.” But Pluto going back to Sagittarius may find a change of tune, to “good, good news.” It may be just in time for the economic data to reflect the positive effects of the recent stimulus package. American tax payers were sent $168B in tax refunds, and they are spending it. It is very likely to show a rebound in spending, and hence economic activity. But, as I stated before, this bump up in economic activity is smoke screen. Americans are likely to spend more than the tax rebates they just received – they always spend more than they have. And that too will show up, probably just about the time that Pluto returns to Capricorn in late November 2008. Just in time for the holidays. More Pluto, more debt… until we learn to save and stop being wasteful. It is a message not just for American citizens, but also for American government leaders –Congress and the White House. More “bad, bad news” usually means more debt. But Pluto is in Capricorn. There will be a point during this transit when the lesson is learned, but probably the hard way. Nothing comes easy in Capricorn. But when lessons are learned, there is redemption.

International Forecaster May 2008 (#9) - Gold, Silver, Economy + More

By: Bob Chapman, The International Forecaster


-- Posted Sunday, 1 June 2008 | Digg This Article | Source: GoldSeek.com


The following are some snippets from the most recent issue of the International Forecaster. For the full 24 page issue, please see subscription information below.

US MARKETS

Everything the cartel does is geared into keeping both professional and private investors out of precious metals. The so-called "wall of worry" which any given market is said to climb, is nothing more than a false, fraudulent front of disinformation which is created by elitist insiders on Wall Street, in our government and in corporate America, in order to scare people out of any market from which the elitists wish to profit. They want you to keep out until they have bought in cheaply. After they have glutted themselves, the wall of worry is removed and the public dupes are let in on "the coming huge rally" in whatever, all as promoted by our "beloved" fane-stream media. The market is then run up by the sheople-dupes to a blow-off top, and then the inside players bail out with as much stealth as they can muster, booking monumental profits while the public sucker-dupes crash and burn and are essentially left holding the bag as they are advised by the fane-stream media to follow Charles Schwab's mantra that "we're in it for the long term." (Barf) We have news for you -you're in it for the long greased pole that the elitists will be shoving up your collective derrieres after they have glommed their pirate booty. Yes indeed, you're "in it for the long pole."

The "wall of worry" for precious metals is no different and is a product of the cartel's overall creative efforts at suppression of the monetary metals. Gold suppression is JOB ONE at the Fed, and the Fed uses its vast powers, in conjunction with the powers given to the PPT by Reagan's Executive Order (and we might add in conjunction with powers that go way beyond the mandate called for in that Executive Order), to create the wall of worry for precious metals. They do this not only because precious metals continually embarrass the value and integrity of their "worthless paper" which some prefer to call Federal Reserve notes (printed by a Ponzi-scheming, privately owned Fed and backed by the full faith and credit of a bankrupt US Treasury), but also because they are attempting to alleviate what is one of their greatest causes for angst. The fear we have just alluded to is the cartel's fear that due to their complete bungling and ineptitude, gold and silver will explode before they can bail out of the general stock and bond markets through dark pools of liquidity that would hide their bailout from the public patsies. They want to plow those proceeds into commodities and real, tangible assets, with gold and silver high on their list. And when they buy, they want to get in cheap.


The problem is, that in their unmitigated greed and lust for power, as well as their paranoia about political fallout which they feel must be avoided at all costs (costs which include the destruction of our economy), they have destroyed our nation's real estate market, thereby destroying themselves in the process as all real estate-backed securities are in the process of being taken to the cleaners. And that is just the tip of the iceberg as other debts such as credit cards and car loans start to implode along with our economy which in turn has been destroyed by free trade, globalization, off-shoring, outsourcing and illegal immigration. Credit default swaps are now skyrocketing for many of the brokers and other financial institutions, indicating some very bad things to come, not the least of which are bank failures caused by the real estate debacle and the credit-crunch. In order to save themselves, the Illuminists had to lower rates, thus destroying the dollar and sending gold to new all-time highs. And in order to maintain oil backing for the dollar, they had to create more wars for profit to keep leaders from other countries from trading oil in currencies other than the dollar; wars that have greatly supported gold as a safe-haven. Meanwhile a $596 trillion time bomb of derivatives awaits the pressing of its detonator button through a combination of all the above. Gold is going to go inter-dimensional when that ticking time bomb finally detonates. Ah, the tangled webs we weave when we practice to deceive!

If you think it is safe to get back into the financial waters for stocks and bonds, we suggest you watch the original movie, "Jaws," using the waters patrolled by the great white shark as your metaphor. Already the stock markets have plummeted, and the bond markets are now under pressure as massive losses create higher rates of interest through accelerating risk reassessment. The great white shark of hyperinflation waits under the deep, dark waters of financial profligacy, fiscal mismanagement, monetary imbecility, unfair trade with its attendant currency manipulations and rampant, rampaging fraud from top to bottom, with the bursting of the real estate bubble being a perfect example of this witches brew of economy-killing debacles. Da-da, da-da...da-da, da-da...da-da, da-da...

Gold and silver have now completed their rollover as of Friday and immediately the monetary metals began their recovery, bursting from 870 to 889 with a close at 888, a number which Asians find propitious in their obsession with 8's. We have to cut large specs some slack due to this rollover as they cannot all liquidate at the same time, so some downward pressure can be expected when you throw in massive cartel efforts to suppress and destroy the monetary metals. They have a big rally planned, so you better stay tuned and take your position. It does not matter what level you make your rollover at if you plan on pushing past 1000 again. You make back all your losses and then some in that event, and we can assure you that the specs have no intention of passing up on a chance to make gargantuan profits and take back ground lost in the rollover. Precious metals have the wind at their backs, while stocks, bonds and treasuries face a hurricane west wind.

If you want to really see gold and silver go on a rampage, liquidate all your precious metal paper counterfeits such as ETF's, mint certificates and futures and use them to purchase and take possession of physical gold and silver bullion. When the COMEX cupboards of gold and silver are empty, you have then purchased the casino and can gamble with impunity. The bullion and collectable coins will skyrocket when volume takes them out of circulation. That is what paper sources of gold and silver are all about, namely, to forestall the taking of precious metals off the table and out of circulation so these pools of paper gold and silver can be used against the very people who invested in them in the first place. Be sure to take a goodly portion of your ETF liquidations and plow them into resource stocks. ETF's are despicable, multipurpose elitist vehicles of metals suppression. They create pools of gold and silver which can be sold and leased, and divert money away from more traditional vehicles like resource stocks. Continuation of ETF investments is like spinning a revolver with five of six chambers loaded and then putting it to your head and pressing the trigger. Why give the elitists a pool of gold, which is greater than many central banks possess so they can use it against you by leasing it out or selling it off. Get in it for the long haul and stop taking profits and trading in and out. Every time there is massive profit-taking, the cartel gets an undeserved breather, and of course they make any resulting downturn all the worse with their usual suppressive tactics.

Who would want futures, ETF's or mint certificates when the best leverage plays are in resource stocks. A great junior will provide leverage that will outperform the futures market hands down without the risk of loss due to the passage of time. You do not have to worry about running out of time when you own high quality resource stocks, but the time element is your main nemesis when you deal in futures. We are puzzled and perplexed at the lack of interest in resource stocks, but can understand some of the reluctance because of the continual naked-shorting used by the cartel. However, naked shorting is a two-edged sword, and if you catch the cartel off guard with a huge rally their shorts will get slaughtered and you will have a massive short-covering rally on your hands.

The yen was weakened this week to support general stock markets while gold and silver were under rollover pressure in the futures markets. That is the only way stocks can go up, and now that the futures rollover is complete, any weakness in the yen will send carry traders into precious metals, as they are the only game in town right now. Treasuries and bonds are under pressure due to inflation, the declining dollar and rising interest rates while stocks suffer the impact of an upcoming hyperinflationary recession and bad economic news across the board. How anyone can have a positive attitude toward stocks with crude above 100 is beyond us. The second quarter has been an absolute disaster and the earnings reports due out starting in July are going to be horrendous. The stimulus has been completely negated by rising crude and food prices, not to mention the destruction of the real estate market, which has shut off the equity-extracting spigot.

The dollar rally has already petered out at 73, and the dollar will now get systematically destroyed as everyone begins to flee stocks, bonds and treasuries in favor of real assets, which has already ongoing for many months now since the credit-crunch took control over market sentiment. Specs should consider buying some dollar longs on the next big dollar dip, and acquire a healthy portion of oil shorts to guard against a takedown of oil to hit the precious metals. These should be in addition to your usual arsenal of protective derivatives. As you can see, the turndown in oil prices coincided precisely with the rollover period for the metals so the commercial shorts could bail out at lower price levels. Open interest has greatly declined because the commercials were cashing out and not rolling all the proceeds over, choosing instead to pocket some cash because they know a rally is on its way. Note that the short positions of Goldman Sachs are at unusually low levels as well. Those expecting summer doldrums to step in are going to get their heads handed to them. The market has completely changed, with investment demand far outstripping jewelry demand in importance. The destruction of financial markets is under way and is starting to accelerate as inflation and recession take their toll. Patterns are going to be broken this year and gold and silver are going to start marching to their own drummer. We expect massive rallies before the end of the year. So take your positions in physical metals and resource stocks and wait for the fun to begin. Such investments are the surest bet you will find during the current economic headwinds.

China Warns US To Stop Global Inflation


June 1, 2008

Elaine Meinel Supkis


The head of the Bank of China, Zhou, is warning the US central bankers that they are causing global inflation. Not speculators :o Of course, this news is from Xinhua News and is not being broadcast across the planet Dead silence in the West This is because the G7 central bankers are trying to pop all the blame for this banking collapse on home owners in California or Las Vegas, not themselves To produce more liquidity so they can flood the planet with more Funny Money™, the biggest banking houses are lending money to hedge funds so they can buy up loans from these same banks! This is crazy, of course. And will make the banking collapse worse. But they don't care They are desperate to move these Alliance-Boots out of the shoe store and into the streets so they can make more and more and more loans. Which we don't need. These loans are only so people can line their pockets. And the Labour Party in England is going bankrupt, too. And UBS is telling its executives to avoid arrest in the US.

Fed's rate cuts "add to inflationary pressure"
The U.S. Federal Reserve's interest rate cuts have helped increase liquidity, but have also led to rising prices in commodities, Zhou Xiaochuan, governor of the People's Bank of China, said on Friday. The central bank governor said this has affected the anti-inflation policies of emerging markets.

Zhou was speaking at a conference following the release of a report by the Commission on Growth and Development, an international organization that focuses on policy consultation in emerging markets, and provides reference for aid programs.

"The U.S. Fed has significantly reduced interest rates on the other hand, global commodity market prices have risen. A lot of developing countries are now suffering from rising inflation," Zhou said.

The Chinese, as I keep on saying, are very angry with the US now. The demands that China raise the value of the yuan have died down in the West only because Japan is demanding the US make the dollar strong. So it is rising against the yen and the carry trade is slowly resuming. All the bankers in the West know that the banking crisis didn't start because a few home owners in Stockton, California couldn't pay their monthly interest payments on their Mini McMansions. They know it started instantaneously with the sudden drop of the dollar against the yen. When the yen strengthened, the entire liquidity cycle in the West was disrupted. Suddenly there was no more 'liquidity'!

Now that the status quo has been partially restored, we are back in the same box we fell out of last summer. The US is again flooding the world with Funny Money™. And when interest rates were artificially dropped below the rate of real inflation, a flood of this useless currency has poured over the planet causing inflation in all countries trading with the US including Japan. Basically, at this international forum, China is blaming the US for global inflation. And this means the US must change or else. Of course, the Fed will say, 'So what?' But this is dumb. The #1 sinkhole for excess US dollars is the FOREX reserves of China's central bank. They are weighing when to take some retaliatory actions.

...hier noch einige "interessante" Grafiken

http://elainemeinelsupkis.typepad.com/money_matters/

I photoshopped a series of graphs from the Federal Reserve that tracks the 'Borrow' window they opened so wide this year. Click to enlarge:

This graph shows how the 9/11 bail out was pretty big. Bigger by far than any time in history. It was very unusual for the Fed to give even a billion back then. Seemingly, everything was fine after that spike. But was it?

We know that Bush told us to go shopping and Greenspan said, 'Here, have some free Funny Money™. The bankers went wild. The spread between mortgage amounts and what the Fed was giving them was humongous. One of the biggest spreads in banking history. So the bankers clamored to make more loans and to do this, they had to pass off the old ones because US savings had collapsed and the reserve ratios were really, really stinky.

In July, 2007, all was still seemingly well. Then, by the end of September, now that the Japanese carry trade was in a panic due to the dropping dollar and the rising yen, the Fed began to hand out loans to save the banking system. They, in turn, had to declare losses on the previous housing bubble they created. The BIS regulators had ordered the banks to price their loans realistically. And this was killing them. They had to cry to Bernanke and beg him for goodies. He opened the window to the Outer Darkness and began to churn out amazing amounts of Funny ™ in ernest.


Here is the BORROW chart from 12/12/2007, the seventh anniversary of the Supreme Court refusing to count votes in the 2000 election. We can see that things are going very, very badly suddenly! The money feeding into the bankrupt banking system. The amount is now over 4X greater than on 9/11/1.




Now we go to January 1, 2008. The Fed and the G7 have begun to crow that the whole thing was fixed and there was no emergency. Obviously, they were wrong. For by that date, a mere 19 days after 12/12, look at the charts!




It has doubled yet again! Not even during a month, in half a month. This was done to fix Xmas so the US public could go on a wild spending spree. Lurking in the shadows was very real inflation that was preparing to take off with a vengeance. After all, the Fed was feeding Funny Money™ to speculators at an increasing rate! Note also that this chart stops at $50 billion while the previous ones were at less than $10 billion.

Now look at today! WOW. I added some lines to this graph in red to show us where we are going: TO THE MOON, MARS AND OUTER SPACE! Boom! This is ridiculous.




To accommodate future rescue operations, I enlarged the graph a tad, like more than doubled it in height. The red square is where we are today in this massive, UNPRECEDENTED rescue operation. And I am betting this will double in JUST ONE MONTH. This is a very, very bad sign. Any system that doubles at this speed ends up in infinity. The fact that it overwhelmed all previous amounts in history long ago, was a bad sign. To see it heading into Derivative Beast territory whereby it doubles and doubles and doubles...this is a sign of HYPERINFLATION TO COME. In other words, the central bankers are trying to fix a broken system by feeding it Funny Money™. This money is not real and based on nothing except the Fed promising to tax the American public...in the future, of course, for all eternity.

This is how all empires collapse: they promise money changers and bankers outside of the empire future taxes. 100 years, 500 years of future taxes! This is always a sign an empire is about to bust apart and die.
