On Merkel’s Gamble

 

 

What to make of the Merkel visit to Athens today? What was she thinking about? Some possible answers:

 

A)   Merkel is a political genius. She has seized on a historical moment. Ms Merkel’s trip has provided much needed proof that she (and therefore Germany) stand shoulder to shoulder with Greece and its leaders.

 

She has traveled to a hostile capital in the face of growing dissatisfaction in Germany with the Greek bailout costs. She has, once again, stood defiantly in support of the EU, the Euro and Greece’s continuing in the Union.

 

Any lingering doubts that may exist about the commitment of the EU leaders toward full monetary union should be eliminated as a result of her State visit.

 

Draghi has said, “The Euro is forever”. That was a monetary commitment. Merkel’s visit to Athens should be considered a political commitment. Of the two commitments, Merkel’s means more than Draghi’s.

 

 

++

 

B)   Merkel is an idiot. She has created the opportunity for a mass protest. The well-published report of 7,000 police in riot gear made it a sure thing that tens of thousands of people would show up in protest to her visit. She knew in advance that there would be images of the German “Nazis” that are taking over Greece. She also knows that these images will be in every magazine, newspaper and TV in Germany.

 

If anything, her visit will harden the opposition in Germany. This risks a domestic backlash. If the already fragile support in Germany falls further as a result of her trip, then it could accidentally accelerate a Grexit (quickly followed by Spanexit).

 

These images will not sit well with Germans:

C)   Merkel is not an idiot and she does understand politics. She must see the writing on the wall. She is faced with an election in less than a year. There is absolutely no hope that the Euro crisis will be more stable than it is today. It is nearly certain that it will be worse. Merkel needs an exit strategy. The Athens trip will open a door for her. What’s in store for the next 10 months?

 

I) – Spain will have to accept a formal bailout from the ECB in the not too distant future. The cost to Germany will be in the ten’s of billions. Italy will (probably) fight tooth and nail against an ECB bailout. But the prospect (and the need) for an ECB/IMF – Italy deal will be front and center right at the time of Merkel’s re-election effort.

 

II – Merkel also knows that she has to carry all of the weight from now on. She once had a partner with France and Sarkozy. That partnership went bankrupt; Merkel got stuck with all the liabilities and none of the assets.

 

III – The new Socialist government of France has taken steps that insure that France will lose competitiveness versus Germany at a very rapid rate. France will become Spain over the next few years. Merkel knows this today. The German people will understand it a year.

 

Merkel went to Athens knowing full well that her visit would demonstrate the impossible situation that Greece is in. She wanted to see riots in the streets. She wanted the scenes to infuriate the German people. She wanted to force the issue to a boil. She needed to show “Pan Euro” intentions as she already has invested so much in that effort. But her effort was a fake “brave face”; her motivation was to create an excuse for her support to fade as she cedes to the popular “will” that she herself has created.

 

I’m not sure which one of these is right. I think they cover the gamut of possible scenarios. Whether she intended to or not, it is quite possible that her trip will mark a decidedly negative turning point for the Euro experiment. The FX market isn’t happy today.

 

 

Note: I don’t buy the Citi explanation for the Euro’s drop today. (Link) This drop is good old supply-and-demand, not a misread of a screen.

  1. Good post, Bruce, keep doign what you are doing.

    Peace.

  2. Agreed, traded EUR shorts all day … saw nothing unusual, normal business day …when currencies trade like pennystocks in a world of endless fiat

  5. You know your Blog is getting popular when you attract the loser spammer rejects like “Peter Cao”- can we get a comment cleanup on Aisle 1?

    Great post, as usual, Bruce. I look forward to reading your Blogs for the common sense, not very common these days. Keep up the good work.

    • My comments disappear again; would fame those I challenged in my comments stand after all?

      Why did my comments disappear? Equal opportunity and freedom of speech;

      Would argument from Sebastian Thrun’s side stand? What’s the major flaw in police handling of May Zhou’s case? Would the police officer who drew suicide conclusion still insist so and hide from us while refusing to discuss it further in light of such public challenges? On what basis would certain malicious officers rule against me in favor of Gabriele Scheler on her recanted testimony of ‘sexual assault’ on me? How much did Eric Schmidt involve into the plot to conspire my life? And what’s the dire consequence of such institutional discrimination against a ‘non-member’, which Sebastian Thrun’s side thought is plausible and understandable?

      Everyone in human society has the right to know

      • Maybe because you SPAM like crazy here? We dont need to read all your book for fuck sake!

        • easy man, no use to induce f word to show off your ineptitude; nothing that you can say no onto which I already say yes;

          As my comments get cleanup, those who are mentioned in my public challenges would be losers; can their fame stand in light of my challenges after all? Fascism Crimes remain unconquered, and they would not gone away with censorship on my innocent comments; such war of fascism v.s. anti-fascism continues :)

        • Sir, my comments changes the world; don’t be scared :)

  6. Christopher Green says:

    I don’t think that Merkel is an idiot. I think that it is either choice “A” or “C” and she is letting the Greeks decide which it will be. This is Greece’s last chance.

  7. Forget about these brave ss guys, frau Merkel long live

  8. Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany, had provided political support for a series of fascism crimes which related to a cold-blooded killing of an innocent Stanford student May Zhou (a girl of U.S. citizen, Taiwan origin, MIT alumnus and Stanford Ph.D. candicate) as well as an unsuccssful plotted murder on me, all started from an on campus atrocity case in Stanford University [Stanford Police Case Number: IR #04-111-0335;Victim: Peter Cao; Criminal Suspect: Gabriele Scheler ---http://t.cn/SXQ6Rj--- attention to the 7 photo evidence], in which an extremely irrational Germany lady named Gabriele Scheler had bitterly assaulted me. Chancellor Merkel might as well back up a coup in Stanford after she visited Stanford in 2010, though it was cracked down by California Judicial Authorities in time. It is an interesting question of how much Chancellor Angela Merkel had invovled into such series of facsism crimes on land of America. I bet with the intervention of Germany power into these cases, such series of fascism crimes would never be clarified and such fascism crimes on land of America would never be concurred by U.S. Authorities. A very serious offending to the dignity and sovereignty of people of the United States as well as to the whole world of humanity

  9. Sebastian Thrun, a Germany Scholar who had got Chancellor Angela Merkel’s visit when she visited Stanford in 2010, had partialy left Stanford Computer Science department because he is in debt to Stanford people with his involvment into Stanford student May Zhou’s death, he is not innocent in an unsuccessful plotted murder on me either and I have been cursed by powers from Sebastian Thrun’s side for many years. Sebastian Thrun dare not deny to the public his involvment into such fascism crimes till today and I am still waiting to see why he dare not

    I believe Chancellor Angela Merkel had monitored and invovled into Sebastian Thrun, Gabriele Scheler and Eric Schmidt’s fight against ruling from authorities of Stanford and authorities of U.S. over their unruly criminal behaviors on campus of Stanford, and which ensued a series of crimes, including killing the innocent, conspire life of the victim, terrorize/extort authorities, corruption, miscarriage of justice, discrimination against Asian, all on land of America, etc.

  10. Q&A of flaws in the handling of Stanford student May Zhou’s death by certain police officers, which served a big role in a series of fascism crimes, in response to Eric Schmidt and Sebastian Thrun’s side of their argues at [i.doubt.it/tag/sebastian-thrun/]
    =====================
    “Dr. Kelly Arthur of the Sonoma County coroner’s office, is reported to have reviewed it and said she stood by her original finding that there were not any signs of trauma.” — that still would not gurantee a suicide conclusion, would it? where/when/how did those trauma come into being, then? Can Dr. Kelly Arthur explain? or would it be wiser for the officer who drew conclusion of suicide to make sure where/when/how did those trauma come into being before drawing conclusion of suicide?
    ——————-
    “Except Peter Cao, who asserts that Mengyao Zhou was murdered by or with the
    help of Schmidt and Thrun, in order to intimidate him personally.” — Schmidt did threatened my life with the death of May Zhou for sake of Thrun during their fight with Stanford. I said they killed May Zhou to intimidate me and to terrorize Stanford; you omitted the serious part. My statement is far more reasonable than police can give, don’t you agree?
    ——————–
    “… and an email that Zhou sent to her 16-year-old sister as “consistent with a goodbye note.”
    — can we see such an email before we could believe it? How much good-bye is there in it? How to explain the fact that May Zhou had transferred money to pay off debt before her disappearance?
    ———————
    “But then you can’t expect someone killing themselves to make choices that appear rational to others. If it’s not tasteless to speculate, perhaps she felt ashamed and wanted to hide herself.”
    — Is that the way you describe death of an innocent girl as May Zhou is? Shame on you!
    — Would the officer in charge of May Zhou’s case agree? How to get connect with such an officer? I have serious stuff to report

    • “no formal charges were ever brought.”
      ——— ZZZ/YYY/VVV did not bring formal charges on Gabriele Scheler’s accusation of ‘sexual assault’ on me, not because they have any mercy on me, but because they dare not show me their testimony/evidence and clarify the case with confrontation;
      At first, there are malicious officers in the judicial system who had threatened me with Gabriele Scheler’s recanted testimony for sexual assault, I never compromise to them in this regard; I always insist that they need to show me their testimony and evidence and we have to clarify the case at authorities with confrontation; They had then gone to terrorize Stanford, my innocent friends and relatives by posing to charge me; when I told them (e.g. ZZZ/YYY/VVV) to bring them on directly to me, they never dare; For years I have publicly challenged those malicious officers to bring on details of their accusations directly to me all the time, but they never did; what they actually do is to make up a case to curse me and to intimidate me, and to prevent the case from being clarified, so that they could continue their crime of collateral with those in this fascism circle to conspire victims (e.g. Stanford, Google, May Zhou, and me); — ZZZ/YYY/VVV are abusing their judicial power to cover up real crimes from this fascism circle with miscarriage of justice

    • Q&A of flaws in the handling of Stanford student May Zhou’s death by certain police officers, which served a big role in a series of fascism crimes, in response to Eric Schmidt and Sebastian Thrun’s side at [i.doubt.it/tag/sebastian-thrun/]

      =======================================

      That “You doubt it” is too far away from you can deny it. The author of that blog Richard Chapman had no credibility in this case. the evidence he presented in that blog is outdated and the logic he presented in that suicide theory is cliche which I had pointed out has major flaw [tysurl.com/HsEERS]

      For more serious discussion, we need to have those I listed in this fascism circle tell us directly under their real names; e.g. have Eric Schmidt tell us why he lost title of CEO? and Sebastian Thrun why he partially left Stanford in 2011? and why would certain officers ZZZ/YYY/VVV hide Gabriele Scheler’s testimony and evidence along with their identities from my eyes while underhandedly made up cases to curse me? Who is the officer RRR who’s in charge of May Zhou’s case to report serious stuff? Did those in this fascism circle ever extort Stanford, Google or even U.S. authorities on Gabriele Scheler’s recanted testimony? or did ZZZ/YYY/VVV maliciously collateral with those criminal suspects to conspire me which had taken away my basic rights of living as a human being? etc. — remember these are real crimes which had endangered human lives, which should not remain unclarified and should not be compromised at all;

      It all started from an on campus atrocity case in Stanford University [Stanford Police Case Number: IR #04-111-0335;Victim: Peter Cao; Criminal Suspect: Gabriele Scheler] One photo would tell it all, there are seven photo evidence which documented how cruel this irrational lady was when she assaulted me on Stanford campus in 2004 —[tysurl.com/mssgYn] —

    • Starting from an irrational Germany lady Gabriele Scheler’s atrocity crime campus [Stanford Police Case Number: IR #04-111-0335;Victim: Peter Cao; Criminal Suspect: Gabriele Scheler---http://t.cn/SXQ6Rj--- attention to the 7 photo evidence] on Stanford campus, there came a war between fascism and anti-fascism; and at this stage, fascism still prevails in our lives; Eric Schmidt, Sebastian Thrun and Gabriele Scheler are just front figures we could see in this fascism circle, there is a whole pack of fascists behind them.

      Gabriele Scheler’s campus atrocity on me [Stanford Police Case Number: IR #04-111-0335;Victim: Peter Cao; Criminal Suspect: Gabriele Scheler---http://t.cn/SXQ6Rj--- attention to the 7 photo evidence], by which Sebastian Thrun and Eric Schmidt started a series of fascism crimes, is a simple case with clear evidence and with serious police investigation.

      But how come Gabriele Scheler could come back and falsely accuse me for sexual assault to molest my life year after year without an end? How come the judicial officer could made up a sexual assault case against me without interviewing me even once? How could they assist Scheler to terrorize/extort Stanford without even showing me any testimony and evidence of such accusations against me? how could this case still not be clarified in judicial system after eight years? Because the crimes are not only coming from those criminals who had committed such crimes, but also coming from certain malicious officers (e.g. a powerful officer namely ZZZ from Santa Clara DA’s Office, and after ZZZ stepped down, another officer YYY, and also officer VVV who’s in charge of Gabriele Scheler’s case, and very likely officer RRR who insist May Zhou’s case is suicide or accident but not murder) who egregiously miscarriage of justice.
      Gabriele Scheler had been rude to Japanese and South Korea Scholars (Asians) in the same office before she assaulted me; Sebastian Thrun collateralled with Gabriele Scheler to trap me while played a role in May Zhou’s case; Eric Schmidt, for Sebastian Thrun and Gabriele Scheler’s sake, had told me “May Zhou is an Asian, police may not even find out who did it …what if it happened to you?” And it did happen as Eric Schmidt predicted that police may not even find out who did it, which is really scary to me

      I brought the case to the public because as a human being, anyone has the responsibility to crack down such fascism crimes which includes killing the innocent, conspire life of the victim, terrorize/extort authorities, corruption, miscarriage of justice, discrimination against Asian, etc.

  11. “Why? Well Cao claims that in 2004, while a Stanford student, he was assaulted by a female colleague… … … explanation is that the matter was dealt with on campus and no formal charges were ever brought.”
    ——— The underhanded ruling against me by certain malicious officers ZZZ/YYY/VVV on Gabriele Scheler’s recanted testimony to accuse me for ‘sexual assault’ is the most shameless accusation in the whole case; Scheler had serious injured me as shown in seven photo evidence—[tysurlDOTcom/mssgYn] — I neither assaulted Scheler nor sexually assaulted Gabriele Scheler, and thus I am sure there is no grounds/motivation/evidence would support Gabriele Scheler’s accusation of ‘sexual assault’;

    Stanford police report clearly stated I am a victim while Gabriele Scheler is a criminal suspect, after serious police investigation in 2004; those officers ZZZ/YYY/VVV who ruled against me on Scheler’s ‘sexual assault’ accusation had hided their testimony and evidence along with their real identities from me and they had never interviewed me, while framing me in my daily life to make up evidence trying to further terrorize me from pursuing the case further; they would keep the case in murky status for ever, so that they could cover up their crimes in the past while applying retaliation on victim as I am for ever; — a clear case of miscarriage of justice;

  12. My understanding is that Chancellor Angela Merkel’s intervension is one of the primary reasons of why Gabriele Scheler’s atrocity case on Stanford campus [--- http://t.cn/SXQ6Rj --- attention to the 7 photo evidence Stanford Police Case Number: IR #04-111-0335;Victim: Peter Cao; Criminal Suspect: Gabriele Scheler] remains unclarified in the U.S. judicial system after over eight years. Again, that’s a serious offending to the sovereignty and dignity of people of the United States

    The problem with Gabriele Scheler’s campus atrocity case [Stanford Police Case Number: IR #04-111-0335;Victim: Peter Cao; Criminal Suspect: Gabriele Scheler] is that Gabriele Scheler’s side had recanted their testimony after Stanford police investigation in 2004; there are certain malicious officers (e.g. ZZZ mentioned above) who chose to stand on this criminal suspect Gabriele Scheler’s side and collateralled with Scheler to conspire victims(e.g. Stanford, May Zhou, me, and later on Google as well) in order to cover up their crimes while applying retaliation on victims, but Scheler’s side dare never show me any of their evidence nor testimony (mine were post on the web) which they used to molest victims for years, and most of all, such malicious officers do not want to see this case from being clarified
    But without clarification of this case, more and more retaliatory crimes were committed from Eric Schmidt, Sebastian Thrun and Gabriele Scheler’s side, which is highlighted by the killing of this innocent Stanford student May Zhou and an unsuccessful plotted murder on me, and I bet more would come if this case remain unclarified as it is now

    So the point at this time is, who is this officer, namely VVV, in charge of Gabriele Scheler’s accusation of sexual assault? and who had underhandedly made up numerous accustaions against me at authorities trying to intimidate me from clarifying such fascism criminal cases, and to terrorize others from ruling against those fascism criminals; VVV is miscarriage of justice and I hereby publicly challenge VVV to bring on details of Gabriele Scheler’s accusations direct to me and clarify the case with confrontation at authorities.

  13. Google’s Eric Schmidt and Sebastian Thrun had lost their credibility when they got involved into fascism crimes which had endangered human lives
    ——————————————————
    There is actually a war between fascism and anti-fascism, at this stage, fascism still prevails in our lives, Eric Schmidt, Sebastian Thrun and Gabriele Scheler are just front figures we could see in this fascism circle, there is a whole pack of fascists behind them

    Eric, as we can see, starting from Gabriele Scheler’s atrocity case on Stanford campus back in 2004, many people, including Gabriele Scheler, Sebastian Thrun, you Eric Schmidt, and also your collegue in China Kaifu Lee, had made contributions to such fascism crimes which had cost human life of Stanford student May Zhou and crimes which had retaliated on victims and almost cost life of the victim as I am …

    … … and someone who had provided legal coverage for your fascism crimes, including a powerful officer from Santa Clara DA Office, namely ZZZ (and after ZZZ, another officer YYY), and the officer VVV who’s in charge of Gabriele Scheler’s case and who had further collateralled with your side(suspect Eric Schmidt, Sebastian Thrun and Gabriele Scheler’s side) to conspire and curse victims( Stanford, May Zhou, me) in every possible way since 2006 till today; and maybe include the officer RRR who insist on May Zhou’s death as a suicide or accident, even though I had clearly pointed out who’s involved in May Zhou’s murder case …

    … … and someone who could provide political support for your fascism crimes, including top politician from the country of Germany whom we all know — Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany, and maybe include a retired top politician from UK as well, etc. and more and more to find out later …
    ———————————————————————————–
    I believe, though some names missed out, all names mentioned in the above comment are part of this fascism circle

    • My understanding is that Chancellor Angela Merkel’s intervension is one of the primary reasons of why Gabriele Scheler’s atrocity case on Stanford campus [--- http://t.cn/SXQ6Rj --- attention to the 7 photo evidence Stanford Police Case Number: IR #04-111-0335;Victim: Peter Cao; Criminal Suspect: Gabriele Scheler] remains unclarified in the U.S. judicial system after over eight years.

  14. Google’s Eric Schmidt had lost his title of CEO and Sebastian Thrun partially left Stanford in 2011 because of their involvement into a series of fascism crimes which related to the killing of an innocent Stanford student May Zhou as well as an unsuccessful plot on my life.

    Powers from this fascism circle had since then tried to reinstall Eric Schmidt’s control power over Google, and they had set up several coups in the past but without success.

    My observation is that they are plotting another round of coup recently: if they could not reinstall Eric Schmidt’s control power in Google, the best bet for this fascism circle to get tighter control of Google is to alienate the two Google founders, and install the one who would choose to take this fascism circle’s side while eliminating control power of the other one over Google. And by getting tighter control of Google, this fascism circle would get a power resource to further cover up their involvement into fascism crimes in the past, which is highlighted by the killing of this innocent Stanford student May Zhou and an unsuccessful plotted murder on me as well, and apply retaliations on victims easier.

    So did those from this fascism circle find that Sergey Brin would be the one, between the two founders, who tends to take side with this fascism circle and who tends to compromise with powers on Angela Merkel, Sebastian Thrun, Eric Schmidt and Gabriele Scheler’s side? Would Sergey Brin fall in the trap of this fascism circle, like Eric Schmidt did to himself? Or would anyone count on powers on side of Angela Merkel, or even lend hand to Angela Merkel’s side, to plot a coup to Google recently, like what they did to Stanford in 2010, though the 2010 Stanford coup was cracked down by California Judicial Authorities in time. Is such a plot from this fascism circle over Google close to make it at this moment? That’s interesting to learn.

    My advice to powers in this fascism circle: stop playing tricks or you will always loose; face the facts, clarify the case, and assume legal and moral responsibilities

    • If such fascism circle would not be crashed by authorities, more and more figures would join in this fascism circle, such as Kaifu Lee, a quack and a treachery cleverer, who had served as a cat’s-paw for those fascists and tried to reap benefits out of such series of fascism crimes by messing up with those in this fascism circle (such as invite Sebastian Thrun to his company conference in Beijing, China; I would say Sebastian Thrun is not welcomed to my home town Beijing at this time, the fair reason to tell is because of Thrun’s involvement into such fascism crimes which had not been clarified; and I bet Kaifu Lee’s invitation to Thrun at this moment has been staged with political meaning in regard to this war of fascism v.s. anti-fascism);

      I personally would not allow such a despicable soul like Kaifu Lee, who had chosen to join this fascism circle and got support from those fascists by way of selling others, and who had habitually sacrificed others to gain his personal advancement, and who had betrayed the very employers of Microsoft and Google both of whom had put heavy trust on him and paid him well, and who had misled youth generation of Chinese with his treachery behaviors, to survive in Chinese society

    • By the way, The Clintons have built up personal grudge on me, that’s for sure, during this war of fascism vs anti-fascism; That’s heartbreaking if so, since I have admired the Clintons since I learned their names in the early 1990s; I’d tell the Clintons in private voice: hold up your grudge on me; it’s better when we could learn each other’s opinion with direct communication. my contact caomingpeter@126.com

  15. Also, other than Angela Merkel of Germany Chancellor, it seems there exists a power center of anti-authority in Stanford Computer Science department in this fascism circle to support unruly criminal behaviors of Sebastian Thrun’s side

    Someone (e.g. Sebastian Thrun, Thrun’s boss in Stanford Computer Science Professor Emeritus Ed Feigenbaum, and a big donor CCC and more, Thrun’s student and colleagues etc. details later …) from inside of this department had made Stanford Computer Science department play a big role in such series of fascism crimes which is highlighted by the killing of an innocent Stanford student May Zhou as well as an unsuccessful plotted murder on me.from inside of this department had made Stanford Computer Science department play a big role in such series of fascism crimes which is highlighted by the killing of an innocent Stanford student May Zhou as well as an unsuccessful plotted murder on me.

    But would anyone from Stanford Computer Science department be willing to live under its shadow of such fascism crimes? or would anyone from this department give moral or spiritual support to such fascists who’s misbehavior had caused cold-blooded killing of an innocent student from their own school of Stanford? Can anyone take place of these fascists to clarify their legal responsibilities and face legal consequences of their fascism crimes? Can anyone in this department answer the question: what’s the motivation behind May Zhou’s death?

    For sake of their own fame, Stanford Computer Science department has the responsibility to go after those fascists to make them pay for their crimes

  16. I bet both VVV and ZZZ understand that bringing complications into my life would add credits to those fascism criminals, and that’s the trick they have played for years
    I am living in cloud of conspiracies for years without an end, conspired to my life by certain malicious officers in the judicial system, particularly officer VVV who’s responsible for Gabriele Scheler’s case; with VVV and officer RRR, who insist that May Zhou’s death was suicide or accident but not a murder, hided their identity from victims as I am, and with their evidience/testimony kept from my eyes, there is no way such series of fascism crimes could be clarified in the judicial system

    For years, VVV had gone after everyone in my life and mobbed them condemn me for not leaving this case behind and not moving on with life, to cheat me for testimony, to frame me in my daily life to make up evidence and to turn my relatives and friends to be hostile to me, and which had taken away my basic rights of living as a human being, in order to intimidate me from clarifying such fascism crimes, etc.; but in the end, VVV dare not show me his/her real identity, nor show me any of their testimony and evidence, when I challenge them to bring them on directly to me, as one of the primary victims in this case.

    • Obviously, certain malicious officers (e.g. ZZZ, YYY, VVV, RRR) do exist and I believe they had abused their judicial power to further victimize victims in reward to those fascism criminals. Something fishy is going behind. I also believe that, by law, I have the right to request to see the testimony and evidence they used against me along with their real identity, to clarify the case with confrontation, and that’s what I am requesting.
      How much credibility would an officer have, if he/she underhandedly made up cases to curse you while hiding their evidence/testimony and their real identities from your eyes?
      Also, I’d tell whichever officer, especially officer VVV who’s in charge of Gabriele Scheler’s case, who put me on the “wanted list” that I want you, too. Bring them on directly to me along with your real identity. Let’s clarify the whole case at authorities with confrontation

  17. I am not quite familiar with how police/DA/court/FBI/CIA in the judicial system works; In the past, I had gone to police/DA/court, and I bet this case would attract attention from FBI as well, though there have not been direct communication between FBI and me so far; If FBI would help solve mysteries in this case, I’d be glad to cooperate; my contact caomingpeter@163.com

    In case Scheler/Thrun/Schmidt’s side went to FBI before, I’d appreciate if FBI would not count on their accusations until I see their testimony/evidence and clarify the case with confrontation

  18. Germany in my heart is a big name, well-respected in this world. I believe people from the Great Country of Germany would also agree that such anti-humanity crimes, which had endangered human lives and which are fascism by nature, would not be tolerated anywhere on this planet. I bet Chancellor Angela Merkel would also agree, wouldn’t she?

  19. Hello Bruce, how come your article was posted much sooner on Zero Hedge than on your own blog??

  20. The Germans ran the numbers and their banks told them privately that a Euro breakup would cost far more than a bailout. China and Germany just agreed to settle trades in Yuan and Euros. This is a clear signal that its all about the MONEY! The average German citizen doesn’t get it because Merkel is not about to launch a massive education campaign on economics.

  21. Bruce, you might check out Chris Cole’s “Volatility of an Impossible Object”:

    http://www.artemiscm.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/ArtemisVegaQ32012_Volatility_of_an_Impossible-Object.pdf

    I found the comparision (page 12) of a fully collateralized 50% strike SPX put option “bond” to that of buying a 10-year UST bond now mind boggling. In short, Cole argues that it’s better to sell the 50% strike SPX put option “bond” now than it is to buy the 10-year UST.

    You might also like Cole’s analysis (bottom of page 3 and top of page 4) of Draghi’s “I’ll do whatever it takes…” empty comment fascinating. As you’ve pointed out, Draghi’s power is obviously not a function of his ability to talk, but rather a function of what he can actually do when the crisis resumes. To that end, Cole quotes Stanley Cup Champion / Detroit Red Wing goon Darren McCarty: “The important thing is that when you fight you have to be willing to take a punch. You’re going to have to, and it’s not about how many you give but about how many you can take and who’s the best about learning to take a punch properly” He adds, “as long as he doesn’t get you on the button square, then you’ll be alright.”

    The world is in “bizzaro” mode now, I wonder how much longer it can last. I like owning gamma and vol.

    Thx for your posts, peace.

    It’s all just a little bit much. You need to have your grievances remediated through the court system, not on Bruce’s blogsite. We are mostly just armchair economists here, appreciative of Mr. Krasting’s experienced eye on events. We’re not going to save all of mankind from the throes of despair, most of which is our own doing anyway. Peace to all.
