[KR737] Keiser Report: Deadly Sales

We discuss the hell (of a profit) to be made by killing a man – and his family – as Lockheed Martin assures analysts from Deutsche Bank there is enough fear of war to maintain its deadly sales. In the second half, Max interviews Swiss banker, Egon von Greyerz about QE, gold and the economic and financial disasters wrought by central banks.

    Er, evidently that’s “just” as in “merely”, and *not* as in “fair”. The absurd empirical contradiction itself, of “fair authoritarian”, ought to have been enough to serve the other, proper concept. Errata mea.

    Citadel Securities to Shut Down Apogee Dark Pool in US
    March 27, 2015

    Citadel Securities plans to shut down its Apogee “dark pool” in the U.S., according to people familiar with the matter, as the U.S. market maker focuses on its faster-growing off-exchange trading platform aimed at institutional investors.

    Details on when the shutdown will occur couldn’t be learned. The move comes as competition among dark pools and operators of other private trading venues is set to intensify…

    It is interesting that the rote suit in the second half seems to only have reservations about governments spending on public services. Would he consider government spending on corporate or business interests and support strucures as unwarranted or deleterious? Or does he consider only spending on public interest as being “odious” – to his business, of course? And damn the rest? The very same blather as others like him have dumped on the Show, in other episodes.

    It is very ironic that he complains about a bankster-corporate toady “led” country “spending too much on the peasants“. “More than they can afford”. “The useless loafers are a load on *our* finances”. etc. When most of it never goes even near the “pesants”. And the reason for not having enough to spend is all that they (the suits and ties) squander on sub-prime debt-bubble bailouts to nation-looters and their cronies. In league, consort, and tandem with the other looter cronies in adjoining fear fiefdoms. Or fearfiefs. Which is what they (we, all of us, all of the people, all of humanity, the World, the Planet, evvvvery-one!) really can’t afford.


    Chunky Mark (Marc McGowan) ought to have a go at him face-to-face. Russell Brand might be too gentle for what needs be done. Despite the (hopefully absurdly slight) danger that conditioned reflex forelock-tugging, or team chummery, might be triggered in either of them.

    In KR737 Max mentions new restrictions on withdrawals of cash from French banks. It’s the sort of thing I’m expecting, but could not find any references to this elsewhere, so I went out and withdrew 1100 euro from my account – I live in France – without any problem. I then paid a recent garage bill with it which surprised the guy a bit. I asked the Bank manager if there had been any recent changes and he was unaware of any? What is going on?

    BEIJING, March 30– U.S. Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew said on Monday that the United States is looking forward to cooperating with the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), as it welcomes and supports proposals that are helpful to infrastructure construction.

    The cooperation can be carried out through the China-U.S. Strategic and Economic Dialog (SED), the World Bank and the AIIB, and any other mechanisms accepted by the two countries, Lew said in his talks with Chinese Premier Li Keqiang earlier on Monday, according to Chinese Vice Minister of Finance Zhu Guangyao…

    While Bloomberg specializes in misleading and fraudulent news reports, thankfully we still have access to data which enables truthseekers to ferret out the truth.

    Re : The end of shale is nigh and hale. – ( @jogador )
    And huge, mean, vicious dogs will gently hand over their bone, if they see others in need.

    It has served big oligarch and corporate oil not to quash the news and research linking fracking to earthquakes and to genocidal widespread environmental contamination and poisoning. While it was serving to boost hyperbole and stocks, and move “money” around. Now that the lesser players and wildcatters have done most of the work and taken the loans for it, though, it’s time to leave them in the debt and failure pit, and reap the spoils.

    When they buy out the remains at firesale prices, be ready for the barrage of rebranding, spins, and facelifts. And the flood of news and papers and ads etc. claiming that the science is uncertain, that it is not unanimous, that it is due exclusively to to normal variations in the sunspot cycles, that people are having hallucinations, that they are on “the government’s” payroll, or on some other billionaires payroll, or both, or… ah, the same as ever.

  21. A bit of mathematical trivia…. I like the number 125 because it is the cube of five. we have just had comment 125 or 5^3,

    125*125 or 125 raised to the power of 125, is 5^375,

    And 375 is 3 x 125. or 3*(5*3)…. A kind of classic symmetry that loony mathematicians like to ponder.

China understands that the best transitions are the gradual transitions, ‘Easy doesn’t break the line’ :Dutch Proverb. They like to take their time to get the frog at boiling point. The Yuan slowly becomes Dollars sparring partner. The Chinese are building their money infrastructure.

    By the time the hubris U.S. Military Industrial Complex wakes up from their satanic dreams of war, it will be all over with. U.S. ambitious wars burn taxpayers money faster than you can say, sorry and as long as the consumer market is collapsing taxpayers money get’s reduced drastically. And the collapse of the money system will take the U.S. Military Industrial Complex with it.

  32. Almost trivia, This is why I was named Alastair, and also why hurtful comments about The British Royal Family cut me deep!

    “….Princess Maud consistently appeared at the Court of St. James’s among the Royal Family, although she did not undertake official or public duties. During George VI’s absence in Africa in 1943, Maud served as a Counsellor of State. At the time of her death in 1945, she was thirteenth in line to the British throne and heiress presumptive to the dukedom of Fife, since her sister’s only son Alastair Windsor, 2nd Duke of Connaught and Strathearn, had died in 1943. Maud’s only son James, Lord Carnegie, succeeded his aunt as 3rd Duke of Fife in 1959.[3] He succeeded to his father’s titles in 1992.

    Maud died in a London nursing home in December 1945 after a bout of acute bronchitis.” [Wikipedia]

    Poor Prince Charles had to endure constant assaults at his schools, nastly little boys used to bruise him black and blue, as their claim to fame… They had beaten up the future King” Charles never reported it so it just got worse and worse for him. Some people get a perverse kind of delight in taunting people for no sane reason. Simply because they are bitter and twisted up inside with hatred. It must be terrible to have a warped mind that constantly torments you to act with unreasoning cruelty.

Intoxicants are yet another way to compensate for lack of true wealth. Wisdom, good manners, compassion, knowledge, friendship, companions, the list is quite a long one, but these are real wealth. For the ‘Wise’ the greatest of all of these is “Austerity”.

    The wise know that austerity is the greatest wealth, because austerity is the currency that is required to purchase all the other genuine forms of wealth.

    Tomorrow is April 1st, Fools Day.

    We will shortly be explaining how it is ‘technically’ possible to give away free luxury accommodation to those who sign up to it. The property remains in the ‘Freehold’ of the Company. The occupier has a Lease up to 99 years. (only Civic Buildings like Town Halls are allowed 999 Year Leases)

    Obviously conditions apply! The property must be maintained in good order….blah!

    The April Fools are the people who pay for it all through their Utility Bills! The people who do not know that unlimited free energy is readily available. This is a symptom of mental myopia, faulty logic and deep prejudice!

    The reason 1,500 Magnets each with a volume of 10 cc. 40.0 x 25.0 x 10.0 mm. each with a ‘pull’ of 10 kilos in close contact, is because they also have a ‘push’ of ten kilos.

    I described earlier how bevelled edges to the inside diameter of an inner steel ‘stator’ ring mating closely (a hack-saw or electric jig-saw blade’s width apart) with the matching ‘bevelled’ edge of a ‘rotor’ outside diameter, results in a ‘trapped’ ring magnetic bearing.

    |__<>__|… I think this should be obvious.

    The magnets are actually only High Performance Ferrite magnets. not Neodymium. They are on special offer at First-4-Magnets, as they are extremely popular! they cost less the half the equivalent weight of very similar magnets. about 23 pence each. £414.00 worth after VAT. [£345.00 Ex VAT.]

    150 Tonnes is the ‘static’ load these will bear, drop that quite a bit for ‘dynamic’ load and ‘remnance’ (loss of flux over time) Ferrite magnets have the advantage of no corrosion issues, and should they lose their flux can be restored in a few milliseconds with a strong electro-magnet. This procedure could be undertaken at service intervals with portable equipment.

    Rust can be re-smelted into Iron, and Magnetite is one of the easiest and most pure forms of Iron ore. It’s NOT difficult to collect and sift. Chile has great towering mountains and vast deserts of the stuff. Millions of cubic kilometres in total. A cubic kilometre of Iron is 7.8 x 1000 x 1000 x 1000 Tonnes. 7.8 Billion Tonnes.

    And the most important ingredient needed to smelt it is energy derived from simple Iron based components.

    Every April 1st is April Fools day. The lack of wisdom continues for the rest of the year!

    The Promised Land: Cocaine and Faith in the Amazon (Full Length)

    Peru is now the world’s main supplier of coca, the raw plant material used to manufacture cocaine. In the last five years, coca production has grown the most in the tri-border region, an area deep in the Amazon where Colombia, Brazil and Peru meet.

    The tri-border region is home to a messianic sect with apocalyptic beliefs whose members dress in biblical robes. Known as “Israelites,” the religious group migrated to the Peruvian Amazon in 1995 in search of a promised land that’s now infested with coca plantations.

    Business owners fatally frame woman to protect Afghan GDP – Osborne would be impressed by their dedication…

    “Just a few days ago, an Afghan woman, named Farkhunda, from a well-respected family, less than a mile away from Ghani’s barricaded palace and ISAF headquarters, was brutally attacked and eventually killed by a group of street thugs and U.S. trained Afghan security forces. She was a teacher and lived in Kabul. She used to guide the Afghan women in the right direction -not to spend their money and time on magic products and remedies, superstitions and other non-Islamic practices.

    The business owners of these non-Islamic operations falsely accused her of burning the holy Quran and attacked her while the U.S. trained Afghan police participated or stood by. After her killing, her family was threatened by the Kabul Chief of Police and told to quickly leave Kabul and not to talk about the killing of their daughter to press.”

  66. BTW, Dual Pseudo-Prime composites are very large. See Tim Berners-Lee’s Home Page for his “Public Key”… As far as we know, these pseudo-primes may or may not be composite? They have been subjected to prime tests, but proving them prime is difficult, because the process takes soooo long, it becomes more and more probable that a stray cosmic ray will invalidate the answer, so a triple computer needs to do the proof in synchronisation. Co-processing. Then vote n errors. For the big numbers five or more co-processing computers are safer. But it will always be, We ‘think’ we have proved it prime.

    The trouble with ‘Public Keys’ is that they are rather too public. So hide them under the door-mat where every thief first looks. NOT! ….All the time, the door was never locked! A knock opens the door. or a bell rope/whatever.

    Quick question – if someone specifies a deadline for a project, lets say 30th June 2015, does that mean the project must be handed-in on or before that date or no later than the 29th June?

    Forgive my obtuseness but I always get confused by such concepts 😛

    It is a bit like, “On the count of 3 we charge, got it?”

    “So we charge on 3 or after?”

  68. Flopot says:

    I would be shot if the origins of “deadline” are true. Apparently it was a line beyond which prisoners would be shot: so I would have to test standing just before the line and then standing on the line. What if the armed prison guard is as obtuse as me? Will he phone HQ and check with his superiors before he shoots, “He’s right by the line now, Guv, but not on it. Do I shoot him now or if he’s on the line or only if he crosses it?”

    I think I understand now – only if you actually cross over the line are you shot. Thus the deadline date is the date you do not cross, no later than that date. So a project can be handed in on the deadline.

    A Total of 26 Central Banks and Monetary Authorities Around The World Have Eased Policy This Year
    Mar 31, 2015

    March 31 (Reuters) – A total of 26 central banks and monetary authorities around the world have eased policy this year, in an unprecedented wave of measures aimed at boosting growth and bolstering inflation. Below is a chronological list of the moves.


    Uzbekistan’s central bank cuts its refinancing rate to 9 percent from 10 percent. Jan. 7/Feb. 4/March 31 ROMANIA

    Romania’s central bank shaved another quarter point off its benchmark interest rate to a record low of 2.00 percent with weak inflation expanding its room to ease.


    The Swiss National Bank stuns markets by scrapping its three-year-old cap on the franc’s value against the euro, leading to a surge in the currency. The de facto tightening, however, is in part offset by a cut in the interest rate on certain sight deposit account balances of 0.5 percentage points, to -0.75 percent.

    Jan. 15/March 4 INDIA

    The Reserve Bank of India unexpectedly lowers its policy rate for the second time this year, backing the 10-month-old government of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in its push to revive economic growth as inflation cools.

    Jan. 15 EGYPT

    Egypt’s central bank makes a surprise 50-basis-point cut in its main interest rates, reducing the overnight deposit and lending rates to 8.75 and 9.75 percent, respectively.

    Jan. 16 PERU

    Peru’s central bank unexpectedly cuts its benchmark interest rate to 3.25 percent from 3.5 percent after the country posts its worst monthly economic expansion since 2009.

    Jan. 20 TURKEY

    Turkey’s central bank lowers its main interest rate, but draws heavy criticism from government ministers, who say the 50- basis-point cut, five months before a parliamentary election, is not enough to support growth.

    Jan. 21 CANADA

    The Bank of Canada cuts interest rates to 0.75 percent from 1 percent, where they had been since September 2010, ending the longest period of unchanged rates in Canada since 1950.


    The ECB launches a government bond-buying programme which will pump over 1 trillion euros into the sagging euro zone economy, starting in March and running to September next year and perhaps beyond.

    Jan. 24 PAKISTAN

    Pakistan’s central bank cuts its key discount rate to 8.5 percent from 9.5 percent, citing lower inflationary pressure because of falling global oil prices. Central Bank Governor Ashraf Wathra says the new rate will be in place for two months, until the next central bank meeting to discuss further policy.

    Jan. 28 SINGAPORE

    The Monetary Authority of Singapore unexpectedly eases policy, saying in an unscheduled policy statement that it will reduce the slope of its policy band for the Singapore dollar because the inflation outlook has “shifted significantly” since its last review in October 2014.

    Jan. 28 ALBANIA

    Albania’s central bank cuts its benchmark interest rate to a record low 2 percent. This follows three rate cuts last year, the most recent in November.

    Jan. 30/March 13 RUSSIA

    Russia’s central bank cuts its one-week minimum auction repo rate by 100 basis points to 14 percent, less than two months after cutting it by two points to 15 percent, as fears of recession mount following the fall in global oil prices and Western sanctions over the Ukraine crisis.

    Feb. 3 AUSTRALIA

    The Reserve Bank of Australia cuts its cash rate to an all-time low of 2.25 percent, seeking to spur a sluggish economy while keeping downward pressure on the local dollar.

    Feb. 4/28 CHINA

    China’s central bank cuts interest rates for the second time in a month to fight off economic slowdown and rising deflation risks. Following a system-wide cut to bank reserve requirements in early February, policymakers follow up with a cut in benchmark interest and saving rates at the end of the month.

    Jan. 19/22/29/Feb. 5 DENMARK

    The Danish central bank cuts interest rates four times in less than three weeks and intervenes regularly in the currency market to keep the crown within the narrow range of its peg to the euro.

    Feb. 2/March 19 COSTA RICA

    Costa Rica’s central bank cuts its main interest rate by 0.25 percentage point to 4.5 percent, the second rate reduction in less than two months.

    Feb. 13/March 18 SWEDEN

    Sweden’s central bank cuts the key repo rate by 0.15 percentage points to -0.25 percent and says it will buy 30 billion Swedish crowns ($3.40 billion) of government bonds after already completing 10 billion crowns of purchases. Feb. 17 INDONESIA

    Indonesia’s central bank cuts its benchmark interest rate by a quarter of a percentage point to 7.5 percent, the first rate cut in three years.

    Feb. 18 BOTSWANA

    Botswana’s central bank cuts its benchmark lending rate by 100 basis points to 6.5 percent, saying the state of the economy and inflation outlook provided scope for easing monetary policy.

    Feb. 23 ISRAEL

    The Bank of Israel lowers its benchmark interest rate to 0.1 percent from 0.25 percent, its first reduction in six months, amid persistent deflation and a strengthening shekel.

    March 4 POLAND

    Poland’s central bank cuts interest rates by 50 basis points to an all-time low of 1.50 percent, to curb deflation and prevent excessive gains of its currency.

    March 11 THAILAND

    Thailand’s central bank cuts its benchmark interest rate by 25 basis points to 1.75 percent in a bid to spark the stubbornly sluggish economy. The cut is the first rate change in a year and expected by only five of 21 analysts in a Reuters poll.

    March 12 SOUTH KOREA

    South Korea’s central bank cuts interest rates for the first time in five months in a surprise move, lowering its base rate by 25 basis points to a record low of 1.75 percent.

    March 12 SERBIA

    Serbia’s central bank cuts its benchmark interest rate for the first time since November to 7.5 percent from 8 percent, to ward off deflation and support economic growth after a new IMF loan deal. March 24 HUNGARY

    Hungary’s central bank cuts its main interest rate for the first time in eight months, by 15 basis points to 1.95 percent, and flags further cautious easing as inflation evaporates. (Compiled by Jamie McGeever; Editing by Larry King)
