Rumors of bank runs…

Do they actually want bank runs???

Jim Cramer Is Predicting Bank Runs In Spain And Italy And Financial Anarchy Throughout Europe

theeconomiccollapseblog.com

May 20th, 2012

During an appearance on Meet The Press on Sunday, Jim Cramer of CNBC boldly predicted that “financial anarchy” is coming to Europe and that there will be “bank runs” in Spain and Italy in the next few weeks. This is very strong language for the most famous personality on the most watched financial news channel in the United States to be using.

In fact, if Cramer is not careful, people will start accusing him of sounding just like The Economic Collapse Blog. It may not happen in “the next few weeks”, but the truth is that the European banking system is in a massive amount of trouble and if Greece does leave the euro it is going to cause a tremendous loss of confidence in banks in countries such as Spain, Italy and Portugal.

There are already rumors that the “smart money” is pulling out of Spanish and Italian banks. So could we see some of these banks collapse? Would they get bailed out if they do collapse? It is so hard to predict exactly how “financial anarchy” will play out, but it is becoming increasingly clear that the European financial system is heading for a massive amount of pain.

Posted below is a clip of Jim Cramer making his bold predictions during his appearance on Meet The Press. He is obviously very, very disturbed about the direction that Europe is heading in….

But what is Europe supposed to do? Even though “austerity measures” have been implemented in many eurozone nations, the truth is that they are all still running up more debt. Are European nations just supposed to run up massive amounts of debt indefinitely and pretend that there will never been any consequences?

That is apparently what Barack Obama wants. During the G-8 summit that just concluded, Obama urged European leaders to pursue a “pro-growth” path.

Of course to Obama a “pro-growth” economic plan includes spending trillions of dollars that you do not have without any regard for what you are doing to future generations.

Germany has been trying to get the rest of the eurozone to move much closer to living within their means, but as the recent elections in France and Greece demonstrated, much of the rest of the eurozone is not too thrilled with the end of debt-fueled prosperity.

In Greece, the recent elections failed to produce a new government, so new elections will be held on June 17th.

Many EU politicians are trying to turn these upcoming elections into a referendum on whether Greece stays in the eurozone or not. If the next Greek government is willing to honor the austerity agreements that have been previously agreed to, then Greece will probably stay in the eurozone for a while longer. If the next Greek government is not willing to honor the austerity agreements that have been previously agreed to, then Greece will probably be forced out of the eurozone.

The following is what John Praveen, the chief investment strategist at Prudential International Investments Advisers, had to say about the political situation in Greece recently….

“If the pro-euro major parties fail to muster enough support to form a coalition and the radical left Syriza party and other anti-euro, anti-austerity parties secure a majority, the risk of a disorderly Greek exit from the Euro increases and could roil markets”

Right now, polls show the leading anti-austerity party, Syriza, doing very well. The leader of Syriza, Alexis Tsipras, has declared that he plans “to stop the experiment” with austerity and that what the rest of the eurozone has tried to do in Greece is a “crime against the Greek people”.

But the Germans do not see it that way. The Germans just want the Greeks to stop spending far more money than they bring in.

The Germans do not want to endlessly bail out the Greeks if the Greeks are not willing to show some financial discipline.

As we approach the June 17th elections, the financial markets are likely to be quite nervous. According to Art Hogan of Lazard Capital Partners, many investors are deeply concerned about how “sloppy” a great exit from the euro could be….

“Next week is only one of the four weeks we have to wait until the Greek election. Every utterance out of Greece makes us think about their [possible] exit and how sloppy that could be”

Most Greek citizens want to remain in the eurozone and most European politicians want Greece to remain in the eurozone, but it is looking increasingly likely as if that may not happen.

In fact, there are reports that preparations are rapidly being made for a Greek exit. According to Reuters, “contingency plans” for the printing of Greek drachmas have already been drawn up….

De La Rue (DLAR.L) has drawn up contingency plans to print drachma banknotes should Greece exit the euro and approach the British money printer, an industry source told Reuters on Friday.

And even EU officials are now acknowledging that plans for a Greek exit from the euro are being developed. The following is what EU Trade Commissioner Karel De Gucht said during one recent interview….

“A year and a half ago, there may have been the danger of a domino effect,” he said, “but today there are, both within the European Central Bank and the European Commission, services that are working on emergency scenarios in case Greece doesn’t make it.”

When these kinds of things start to become public, that is a sign that officials really do not expect Greece to remain a part of the euro.

And Greece is rapidly beginning to run out of money. According to a recent Ekathimerini article, the Greek government is likely to run out of money at the end of June….

The public coffers are seen running dry at the end of June, but this will depend on two key factors. First, revenue collection: In the first 10 days of May, inflows were about 15 percent lower than projected but there are fears that the slide may reach 50 percent. The GAO will have a picture for the first 20 days on May 23, while the last three days of the month are considered crucial, when 1.5 billion euros of the month’s budgeted total of 3.6 billion are expected to flow in.

Second, whether the IMF and EFSF installments are disbursed: This is not certain, as the decision will be purely political for both providers and evidently partly linked to political developments. Earlier this month the eurozone approved a disbursement 1 billion short of the 5 billion euros that were expected.

If Greece runs out of money and if the rest of Europe cuts off the flow of euros, Greece would essentially be forced to leave the euro.

So the last half of June looks like it could potentially be a key moment for Greece.

Meanwhile, the Greek banking system is struggling to survive as hundreds of millions of euros get pulled out of it. The following is from a recent CNN article….

The Greek financial system is straining hard for cash.

Consumers and businesses are making massive withdrawals from Greece’s banks — leading to concern the beleaguered nation could be forced out of the eurozone by a banking crisis even before its government runs out of cash.

Deposits are the lifeblood of any bank, and Greeks pulled 800 million euros out of the banking system on Tuesday alone, the most recent day for which figures are available.

If Greece does leave the euro and the Greek banking system does collapse, that is going to be a clear signal that a similar scenario will be allowed to play out in other eurozone nations.

That is why Jim Cramer, myself and many others are warning that there could soon be bank runs all over the eurozone.

Sadly, the banking crisis in Europe just seems to get worse with each passing day.

For example, the Telegraph has reported that wealthy individuals are starting to pull money out of Spanish banking giant Santander….

Customers with large deposits have started withdrawing cash from Santander, the bank has admitted, as it tried to reassure concerned members of the public that their money is safe.

Round and round we go. Where all this will stop nobody knows.

If Greece does end up leaving the euro, that could set off a chain of cascading events that could potentially be absolutely catastrophic.

Former Italian Prime Minister Romano Prodi recently stated that the “whole house of cards will come down” if Greece leaves the euro.

And if the “house of cards” does come down in Europe, that is going to greatly destabilize the global derivatives market.

You see, the truth is that the global derivatives market is very delicately balanced. The assumption most firms make is that things are not going to deviate too much from what is considered “normal”.

If we do end up seeing “financial anarchy” in Europe, that is going to greatly destabilize the system and we could rapidly have a huge derivatives crisis on our hands.

And as we saw with JP Morgan recently, losses from derivatives can add up really fast.

Originally, we were told that the derivatives losses that JP Morgan experienced recently came to a total of only about 2 billion dollars.

Now, we are told that it could be a whole lot more than that. According to the Wall Street Journal, JP Morgan could end up losing about 5 billion dollars (or more) before it is all said and done….

J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. is struggling to extricate itself from disastrous wagers by traders such as the “London whale,” in a sign that the size of its bets could bog down the bank’s unwinding of the trades and deepen its losses by billions of dollars.

The nation’s largest bank has said publicly that its losses on the trades have surpassed $2 billion, and people familiar with the matter have said they could over time reach $5 billion.

And if Europe experiences a financial collapse, the losses experienced by U.S. firms could make that 5 billion dollars look like pocket change. The following is from a recent article by Graham Summers….

According to Reuters once you include Spain and Italy as well as Credit Default Swaps and indirect exposure to Europe, US banks have roughly $4 TRILLION in potential exposure to the EU.

To put that number in perspective, the entire US banking system is $12 trillion in size.

Interesting days are ahead my friends.

Let us hope for the best, but let us also prepare for the worst.

Disastrous Durbin Anti-Supplement Amendment Just Offered! Help Stop it.

www.anh-usa.org

May 23, 2012

The Food and Drug Administration Safety and Innovation Act (S.3187) is a bill that is considered “must-pass” legislation and without notice, Senators Dick Durbin and Richard Blumenthal offered their anti-supplement amendment (No. 2127) to the bill. Their amendment creates duplicative, unnecessary, and unexpected new regulations while upending current law and the regulatory process.

As you know, Sen. Durbin has engaged in this sort of dirty-trick legislative process before in an attempt to regulate away your supplements. The amendment will:

Circumvent the FDA’s New Dietary Ingredient Industry Guidance. FDA and the dietary supplement industry are currently engaged in conversations regarding implementing a new dietary ingredient notification process. The Durbin amendment creates an entirely new law that would require new FDA regulations, likely erasing nearly two decades of DSHEA’s positive influence in favor of Durbin’s knee-jerk approach to governing.

Require that a “facility engaged in the manufacturing processing, packing, or holding” of dietary supplements to register with the FDA. Title III of the Public Health Security and Bioterrorism Preparedness and Response Act of 2002 already requires supplement facility registration! Extra regulation drives up costs of supplements.

Hurt businesses and the economy with burdensome and unexpected new regulations. Supplement manufacturers have thirty days to register their products after marketing or face charges of misbranding. Given that there are thousands of products currently in the market, these regulations will force significant numbers of products off the market as industry adjusts to the new regulations, costing the industry significant revenue, and causing the loss of American jobs. Most importantly, this amendment would drastically limit you access to supplements as companies would likely remove their products from store shelves in order to meet Durbin’s thirty-day deadline.

Contact your senators IMMEDIATELY and tell them to OPPOSE the Durbin and Blumenthal amendment no. 2127 to the FDA Safety and Innovation Act (S.3187).

Hillary Clinton: U.S. hacked Yemen al-Qaida sites

news.yahoo.com (abc news)

By Dana Hughes | ABC News – 23 May 2012

In a rare glimpse into cyberwarfare tactics, a top U.S. official has explicitly acknowledged that the U.S. government hacked into websites run by al-Qaida’s affiliate in Yemen, changing advertisements that boasted about killing Americans into advertisements that underscored the deaths of Muslim civilians in al-Qaida terror attacks.

During her keynote speech at the Special Operations Command gala dinner in Tampa, Fla., on Wednesday night, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that State Department specialists attacked sites tied to al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) that were trying to recruit new members by “bragging about killing Americans.”

“Within 48 hours, our team plastered the same sites with altered versions of the ads that showed the toll al-Qaida attacks have taken on the Yemeni people,” Clinton said. “We can tell our efforts are starting to have an impact because extremists are publicly venting their frustration and asking supporters not to believe everything they read on the internet.”

It had been suspected that the U.S. government played some role in shutting down several jihadi web forums earlier this year, but officials from the CIA and counterterrorism community had previously denied any involvement.

Highlighting the government’s use of “smart power” to fight extremists, Clinton said that military and civilian specialists around the world are focused on preempting, discrediting, and outmaneuvering extremist propaganda. Calling them  “a digital outreach team,” Clinton said the specialists are fluent in Urdu, Arabic, and Somali. The group is “already patrolling the web and using social media and other tools to expose a-Qaida’s contradictions and abuses, including its continuing brutal attacks on Muslim civilians.”

Clinton also said that under her tenure the State Department has become more active in working with the Defense Department and the intelligence community to use diplomacy as a tool to fight terrorism of all forms and extremist propaganda.

The Bureau of Conflict and Stabilization Operations, according to Clinton, was created to find ways for civilian diplomats and experts to better aid military operations in hot spots. Clinton said the bureau sent a team of experts ahead of the Special Operations mission in Central Africa to talk to village leaders and rebels who would be open to defecting or helping the U.S. find the warlord Joseph Kony.

Clinton said the State Department’s Counterterrorism Bureau is currently spearheading a diplomatic campaign around the world, working with local governments and leaders to squeeze any funding venues for al-Qaida and its affiliates.  She said the State Department trains nearly 7,000 police, prosecutors, and counterterrorism officials from more than 60 countries.

“We’re expanding our work with civil society organizations in specific terrorist recruiting hot spots — particular villages, prisons, and schools — to disrupt the process of radicalization by creating jobs, promoting religious tolerance, and amplifying the voices of victims of terrorism,” said Clinton.

‘Anti-Racists’ Attack White Heritage Group in Family Restaurant

news.yahoo.com (abc news)

By Andrew Fies    ABC News – 22 May 2012

A group of 18 people dressed in black, wearing masks, wielding steel batons and hammers and claiming to be extreme anti-racists allegedly stormed a suburban Chicago family restaurant in broad daylight to assault a meeting of alleged white supremacists, officials said.

Ten people were injured and at least three required treatment for head wounds as a result of the attack Saturday at the Ashford House Restaurant in Tinley Park, Ill., a quiet Chicago suburb.  The restaurant sustained $15,000 in damages including broken plates, glasses and furniture.

“I’ve been mayor for 31 years,” Tinley Park Mayor Ed Zabrocki tells ABC News, “and I’ve never heard of anything stranger than this.”

Five of the attackers were caught and have now been charged with aggravated battery, mob action and criminal damage to property, all felonies.  Brothers Jason, Cody and Dylan Sutherlin, along with Alex Stuck and John Tucker are all from Indiana.  The men are connected to the Hoosier Anti-Racist Movement (H.A.R.M.) whose website now claims them as “The Tinley Park 5?.

Meanwhile the targets of their attack were about a dozen members of the Illinois European Heritage Association, a group linked to the “White Pride” group Storm Front.  Two of these victims were also caught up in the police investigation following the incident: Steven Speers of North Dakota was arrested on an outstanding warrant for possession of child pornography and Francis Gilroy of Florida was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon.

A restaurant surveillance camera captured some of the melee on video and Zabrocki viewed it before it was turned over to prosecutors as evidence in the investigation.

“You see the door opens up, these 15, 18 people walk in. They’ve got hoods on, they’ve got masks on,” Zabrocki said.

While the confrontation itself happens out of the camera’s view, he said, “You see tables moving into view, food spilling on the floor.  You see them marching out and you see some of the waiters taking swings at them.”

Tinley Park police chief Steve Neubauer said neither of the groups involved had any connection to his town or the restaurant and he was struck by the randomness of the incident.

“There was a college graduation luncheon and a shower going on there.  It’s a nice little family restaurant. You take your mother in law there for mother’s day for breakfast,” Neubauer said.

The meeting of the Illinois European Heritage Association had been frequently mentioned on the “White Pride” webforum stormfront.org.  It was called the “5 th Annual White Nationalist Economic summit” and promoted as an opportunity to “work for whites.”

The Southern Poverty Law Center, which monitors extremist group activity, suggested that H.A.R.M. probably matched the names of those organizing the meeting on stormfront.org to those on a membership list of the neo-Nazi National Socialist Movement.  But Beckie Williams, one of the attack victims, told the Chicago Tribune that the charge of racism is “ridiculous” and that her Heritage group was only meeting to discuss “economic hardships.”

Meanwhile Zabrocki said he is angry about this “totally bizarre” incident for the law enforcement and emergency response it has required.

“This is going to cost us a bundle … to our town and a bunch of other towns that responded for you know, a bunch of idiots,” he said. “And I’m referring to both sides.”

Iceland’s Ex-Premier Convicted on Charge

online.wsj.com

Associated Press    Updated April 23, 2012, 4:29 p.m. ET

REYKJAVIK, Iceland—The leader of Iceland’s government when the nation’s banking system collapsed was convicted Monday of one criminal charge, cleared on three others and faces no punishment, a special court said.

Former Prime Minister of Iceland Geir Haarde, right, sits in court in Reykjavik Monday.

The court said the state would pay Geir Haarde’s expenses for defending the case.

Mr. Haarde, who led the government from 2006 to 2009, was the first government leader anywhere to face criminal prosecution because of the global banking crisis.

The 15 members of the Landsdomur, a special court founded in 1905 to deal with criminal charges against Icelandic government ministers, returned a 500-page verdict, but only a brief summary was announced in public.

Mr. Haarde, who pleaded innocent to all charges, could have faced a sentence of up to two years in prison. He smiled and shook hands with supporters after the judgment was announced. “In my opinion and let me say this clearly, I believe the majority of the judges have succumbed to political pressure in the case and decided to offer the prosecution a small consolation price to justify this low and costly process,” he said. “The count of which I am found guilty has nothing to do with the origins of the financial crisis or the way I dealt with it.”

He said he was considering appealing to the European Court of Human Rights on the conviction.

“I am found partially guilty for not discussing the financial situation in the markets frequently enough at cabinet meetings in the period leading up to the crisis in 2008,” he said. “This is obviously a purely formalistic charge. It has nothing to do with the banking crisis as such,” he said.

Mr. Haarde originally faced six charges. Two were dismissed in October.

He was cleared of failing to act to reduce the size of the banking system, of not making sure that national bank Landsbanki’s Icesave interest accounts in Britain were transferred to a subsidiary, and of failing to produce better results from the government’s 2006 report on financial stability and preparedness.

Iceland’s banking sector ballooned to nine times the tiny nation’s annual gross domestic product in a decade of boom, before collapsing under the weight of debt in October 2008. The country’s three main banks collapsed in a single week.

The Althingi, Iceland’s parliament, laid charges against Mr. Haarde in September 2010 by a vote of 33-30 and referred them for trial before the special court, which had never before tried a case.

Testifying on March 5, Mr. Haarde said neither he nor financial regulators knew the real state of Icelandic banks’ precarious finances until they collapsed.

“The bankers did not realize that the situation was as dire as it was,” he said. “It was not until after the crash that everyone saw it coming.”

The special court included five Supreme Court justices, a district court president, a constitutional law professor and eight people chosen by the parliament.

Mr. Haarde, the former leader of the Independence Party, became a hated symbol of the bubble economy for Icelanders who lost their jobs and homes in the crash.

He testified that the size of the banks wouldn’t have been a problem if not for their recklessness and a world-wide squeeze on credit, which also brought down major banks in the U.S. and Europe.

Fireball over San Antonio…

Rare, Unexplained Daytime Fireball Scorches Texas Sky

Published on Apr 10, 2012 by StevieBall2 (youtube)

earthfrenzyradio.com

Source: Live Science    Saturday, 14 April 2012 10:14

A rare daytime fireball streaked across the Texas sky April 4.

A great ball of fire streaked across the Texas sky during the daytime last week, much to the surprise of thousands of people who witnessed it. So bright that it looked “like a little piece of the sun falling,” as one San Antonio resident told the local news station, the rare daytime meteor event was yet another example of the scientific mystery known as spring fireball season.

According to NASA, 30 years of observations show that there’s a consistent uptick in the number of fireballs — meteors that glow brighter than the planets as they scorch through Earth’s atmosphere — during the spring compared with other times of the year. “There are two peaks: one around February and the other at the end of March and early April,” said Bill Cooke, head of NASA’s Meteoroid Environment Office. “And this remains a mystery.”

The Texas event was bright enough to have corresponded to the atmospheric burnup of a space rock at least a yard across, Cooke told Life’s Little Mysteries. But no one knows why springtime meteors are 10 to 30 percent more common. “I can tell you a lot of the bright and slow fireballs appear to be coming from the direction opposite the sun, but they have not much in common other than that,” he said. “You see a lot more ordinary meteors in the fall, but the spring seems to have the big slow movers — the ones that are really impressive.”

To tackle the mystery, Cooke and his NASA colleagues have set up a network of “smart meteor cameras” around the United States that they use to triangulate the trajectories of meteors, pinning down their positions to within the area of a football field as they enter the atmosphere. This has enabled the scientists to map the origins of falling space rocks from different parts of the sky.

Mystery earthquake near McCall, ID puzzles scientists

www.nwcn.com

By Matt Standal    Posted on May 17, 2012 at 1:58 PM    Updated Friday, May 18 at 9:48 AM

MCCALL, Idaho — You could call it a mystery earthquake, a sonic boom, or maybe nothing at all.

Several witnesses report waking up to what they say was a small earthquake south of McCall early Thursday morning around 4:30 a.m. However, those shaky claims have employees at Idaho’s U.S. Geological Survey scratching their heads in disbelief.

Mickey Hart lives five miles south of McCall just off Hwy. 55. The 50-year-old resident says she’s only experienced one earthquake here, and it was in the summer of 2001.

The second earthquake came early Thursday morning around 4:30 a.m. Hart says that’s when her beloved border collie, Mr. Mac, detected the tremor before it hit.

“It was four in the morning, and the house shook,” Hart said. “It woke up my husband and scared the crap out of my dog.”

However, for some folks here in Idaho, those reports just don’t seem to make sense.

U.S. Geological Survey Technical Information Specialist Tim Merrick said his agency’s seismographs haven’t shown any recent earthquake activity in Idaho.

“If there was anything, it would almost certainly show up,” Merrick said. “Our seismology network across the United States is very sensitive.”

Scott VanHoff, USGS Geospatial Mapping Coordinator, agrees.

“Idaho looks amazingly quiet, and I don’t see anything,” VanHoff said, adding that the only earthquake he’d seen recorded was yesterday.

USGS records show that event was a magnitude 2.2 earthquake recorded around 9:30 p.m., northwest of Weiser, Idaho.

However, other folks in Valley County area maintain they positively did feel an earthquake early Thursday morning.

Captain Brandon Swain with the McCall Fire Dept. says he heard reports of the mystery earthquake from his brother Clint Swain, who lives near Lake Fork.

“My brother was awake at about 4:30 or 5 a.m., and the earthquake woke up his wife,” Swain said.

A possible answer

Research geophysicist Joan Gomberg works for the USGS at the University of Washington in Seattle. Gomberg says her seismic records do, in fact, show “something that could be small earthquake,” recorded at 4:42 MDT in the McCall area.

However, Gomberg went on to say that most earthquakes strong enough to be felt by people easily show up on USGS seismographs throughout the United States.

As to why some experts can’t readily see this one, Gomberg offered an interesting explanation.

“This area is at the edged of the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network and where the monitoring network begins to get sparser, so small earthquakes are more likely to be missed,” Gomberg said.

Gomberg also reminds folks that sometimes a sonic boom from a nearby jet can feel like earthquake, along with large mining equipment, and road work.

However, Mickey Hart says she doesn’t need a seismograph to tell her what she experienced was an earthquake. Instead, Hart says she trusts her border collie.

“Mr. Mac new right away. It really shook him up,” Hart said.
