The map of Syria
Turkish President #Erdogan will meet with his Russian counterpart on January 23 to discuss the future of the Syrian east and the city of Manbij. This comes after a telephone conversation between Erdogan and #Trump before yesterday.1/12

With the scrutiny of the Turkish, American, Kurdish and Russian military movements in the Syrian east and its surroundings, it is now possible to develop a scenario that will be closest to what will be the map of the Syrian East.2/12

In a secret visit to #Ankara a few days ago, a Syrian delegation led by Ahmed al-#Jarba, a leader of a military group of Arabs supported by the International Coalition and #Washington, arrived from the areas of #SDF.3/12

06/01/2019 - 78 years ago today, the longest-serving #UnitedStates #President, #Franklin D. #Roosevelt (#FDR) addressed the 77th #Congress with his "#Four #Freedoms" speech with the intent to shift #US #foreign #policy from that of #neutrality to #interventionist.
#FDR promoted the idea that the people of the world, in all nations, shared entitlement to four freedoms: that of the freedom of speech and expression, the freedom of worship, the freedom from want and the freedom from fear.
#FDR is arguably one of the most 'successful' #US Presidents. Some would argue that on the basis of his numerous social policies such as 'the New Deal'. Others, however, would argue that his role during the second world war was more prevalent to his success & everlasting legacy.

1. My Predictions For 2019:
- #Macron will find it more & more difficult to hold onto power.
- #Merkel won't last until 2021 & her power will further decrease this year quarter by quarter.
- I expect that the #Brexit-Exit-date will be moved (most likely by 12 months).
2. My Predictions For 2019:
- The issues of mass-#migration (few real #refugees) will continue to haunt #Europe, especially #Germany & continue to put pressure on the GER #Groko-government (#CDU/#CSU & #SPD).
#Predictions2019 #Year2019
3. My Predictions For 2019:
- The trend of right parties gaining more power (2018: #Italy, #Austria, #Brazil) will continue: In #France #LePen (#FN) will benefit from #Macron losing power, in #Germany the #AfD will gain further support in Eastern Germany (tbc).

Excellent must read piece by @DavidBCollum.

He lays out what brought us here, and has especially interesting content about the absurdity of our Political Moment.

IMO the Political Deconstruction is a result of the Financial Manipulation. It is Political Risk incarnate.
Some key charts on the absurdity of Central Bank Policy.
Valuations have been extreme by so many metrics remains flabbergasting how anyone is surprised by these markets.

The #UAE is opening its embassy in #Damascus (in 30 minutes from now) led by a Chargé d'affaires Abdel Hakim al-Noaymi. #Syria FM will be present at the openning.

Who is next? #Italy is almost ready and #SaudiArabia is not far.
For those who missed this information, Mohammad Bin Salman met General Ali Mamlouk in 2015 (a meeting organised by #Russia). #SaudiArabia said it has inherited the crisis from its predecessor and is involved as much as the #USA wants it to be involved.

#UAE Chargé d'affaires Abdel Hakim al-Noaymi said in Abu Rummaneh, a wealthy district in #Damascus where the #UAE based: "This is the return of #Syria among the Arab nations and soon other embassies will follow". #Syria

This is exactly right but too little too late.

The European Financial System is insolvent.

#Italy was simply a warning shot.

Systemic Risk is on the horizon.
Sovereign Credit is the Systemic Risk.

There is no way out at this point.

It is only a matter of time now.
The Central Banks literally forced the Banking System to take on Systemic Risk by forcing government debt yields to be too low.

All that remains needed is a spark.

The Systemic Moment is nearing.

This Cycle is so much worse than previous Cycles.

In the past, it was clear which aspects of the System were most egregious: whether S&L loans, DotCom stocks or Subprime CDOs, the obscenity was obvious.

This Cycle is much more pernicious.
Because Central Banks distorted Systemic Risk pricing, what happened was virtually everything became dangerously if not obscenely mispriced.
This is especially evident in Credit Markets like in Europe today.
After all of the “drama” in #Italy this year as its government has been in a stand off with the ECB its 10 year bonds currently yield: 2.93%
while the US 10 year is 2.89%.

The absurdity of this price should scream out about the absurdity of our time yet it hides in plain sight.

🔴 As we mark #HumanRightsDay, a devastating new @EURightsAgency Report on #Antisemitism in #Europe underscores how alarming situation has become.

You can read full report, most extensive in years, here: bit.ly/2Qovhjh

@EURightsAgency @TimmermansEU @VeraJourova @kschnurbein @EUinIsrael @EGiaufretEU @IsraelinEU ➡️ 90% of Jews feel #Antisemitism has increased over past 5 years.

➡️ 89% of Jews think Antisemitism is most problematic on the internet & on social media.

➡️ 71% avoid Jewish symbols (e.g., kippah, Star of David, etc) in public things that could identify them as Jewish.

@EURightsAgency @TimmermansEU @VeraJourova @kschnurbein @EUinIsrael @EGiaufretEU @IsraelinEU ➡️ 85% of Jews consider #Antisemitism to be the biggest social or political problem in their home country;

THREAD: @EU_Commission could open Excessive Deficit Procedure against #Italy within the next few weeks. This is much earlier than generally understood. As @AlvaroISLM and I explain in this @piie blogpost piie.com/blogs/realtime… a sanction could be imposed at the same time
2/ Until this 10/18 letter ec.europa.eu/info/sites/inf… from @EU_Commission, it was generally understood that an EDP in the corrective arm of the Stability and Growth Pact (or a Significant Deviation Procedure in its preventive arm) could only be opened in 2019
3/ The basic reason for that understanding was that both levers of the SGP could be activated against Italy but based on fiscal outcomes rather than on fiscal plans as explained by @gregclaeys and Antoine Mathieu-Collin in this @bruegel_org post bruegel.org/2018/10/italys…

Thread: Italian UFO Conference with Luis Elizondo and Tom DeLonge. Lue: The topic of UAPs is an emotional topic for many. And Tom, I and our colleagues are not here to change your mind or position. Just here to provide facts and data and let you decide.
He will split it into two parts. Technical problems so no slides right now. Ten minutes about TTSA and how we got here today. Lue throws it over to Tom for his story and how TTSA came together.
Tom: I started this company about two years ago when I painstakingly met a group of very high ranking US officials. And they kindly listened to an idea that I had to create a vehicle for disclosure. I then met another group of high ranking gov't officials, like Lue, and we

What we are currently witnessing in U.S. Equity markets has been building for some time and has already been well underway globally. This is simply the next chapter.

The Global Reset continues.
The Reason for The Global Reset is that Risk prices have been distorted globally for a decade due to excessive manipulation by Central Banks across all asset classes, beginning with Sovereign Credit.
In 2015 and 2016, the Cycle attempted to turn due to natural Cyclical facts like mispriced high yield debt and a slowdown in China, but the Global Central Banks refused to allow this to happen.

They conducted one last coordinated intervention in early 2016 across the globe.

Good morning from #Copenhagen, #Denmark 😀Another exciting week in the market. Hope you are up for some #HZupdates. We are imo getting closer to an inflection point where things will start to develop fast. Stay tuned! 👍
😀 I would like to see how many #FinTwit users read my #HZupdates on a weekly basis. Will you please answer by a simply "yes" or "no" to the question: I read #HZupdates every weekend. Thanks! 👍
#SP500 I think we pot. have a full count for US #equities. I see a test of the lower trendline (yellow mark) as a given. How successful that test turns out will give us a lot of info. #HZupdates

Thread: I am hearing a lot of talk about a second referendum and going back to the question of reforming #freemovement, including this report from @sundersays on @nick_clegg's conversations around #Europe. I think this is a dangerous route to go. Here is why.
First, I am sure that governments across the EU have concerns about abuse of free movement. But this abuse, while serious, is marginal and receives very little attention from media and public opinion on the Continent.
Second, while some minor reforms to #freemovement are not only possible but also necessary, as @COdendahl and myself explain here - cer.eu/publications/a…, they won't happen any time soon and will surely be less likely to happen if a perceived 'blackmailing' comes from UK again

Trump and Mussolini: 11 Key Lessons from Historical Fascism

Italian fascism provides a better model for our moment than Nazi Germany—and the comparison is not encouraging.

Fascism is a religion. The 20th century will be known in history as the century of fascism.
〰️ Benito Mussolini

I’d like to draw some comparisons and contrasts between our present situation and that of #fascist Italy between 1922 and 1945. I choose fascist #Italy rather than #Nazi #Germany because it has always seemed to me a better comparison.

#Khashoggi Case Thread: I am going to ‘pin’ this post to use it as an ‘Info Thread’ on the #Khashoggi Case. I am in #Turkey. I’ve been following the case closely and with access to sources & experts here. This is a very ‘sensitive’ criminal case due to ‘Diplomatic Booby Traps’!!!
The Evidence Obtained Outside Cameras will not show any evidence of ‘tempering’ but other than license plates of dozens of diplomatic cars (Many with tinted windows-large trunks) with related time stamp, drivers Info, model/year: Nothing.
#Turkish Intel-Investigative Bodies also have the list of all Diplomatic & Private Saudi & “other significant’ Planes in #Turkey for the period of ‘interest.’ Many of the Target airports have their own security cameras & related evidence.

The 5 Star League coalition in #Italy is now 4 months old. What should we make of it? A thread @CER_EU
Italy has a more confrontational approach to the EU picking fights on migration, the EU budget and Italy’s finances. Salvini has driven the agenda on immigration, and the League has benefitted – polling 30% vs 17% in the general election
Italy’s run in with EU has been milder then feared. Plans for a 2.4% budget deficit are a big climb-down from early plans for a 7% deficit. If both the Five Star and the League can claim victory, the optics of spat with the EU will matter more than the substance of the budget.

Fascinating info from field study on #migrantworkers in #Italy ‘s farms.

In Ragusa, Romanians (new to sector) get worse wages than Tunisians (long connections, unionized)! >
Farmwork is increasingly women’s work in Italy. Asylum-seeking mothers with humanitarian permits work on farms - because having children mean employers won’t take them for domestic work.
Those fresh oranges from #Italy? The farmer got 35 cents for a kilo. Picked by Africans, Albanians, Romanians for low low wages with shitty accommodation.

(⛔🚢BREAKING) NO WAY OUT. As fighting in #Tripoli rages on, this August just 1,300 #migrants left #Libya in an attempt to reach Europe by sea.

This is the LOWEST Summer figure since 2012.

#Libia
Migrants are trapped in #Libya, often in appalling conditions. Made even worse by the recent fighting in #Tripoli.
FOLLOW this crucial reporting by @sallyhayd. 👇

(⛔🚢BREAKING) Of the 742 that made it to Europe from #Libya this August, less than a third (234) disembarked in Italy. Of these, 190 were onboard an Italian Coast Guard ship during the "#Diciotti standoff".

Another 56% (416) disembarked in Malta.
12% (87) disembarked in Spain.
