"It really is a shame that the S.E.C. has abdicated it's responsibilities over the last 20 years." - Bill Fleckenstein cc @SEC_Enforcement

Grant Williams, Ben Hunt, Marc Cohodes & Fleck.

Best antidote ever for our (mostly) awful financial press.
"I don't know what they're going to do to get to the root of this, which is money's way too cheap, and the banks are too big to fail."

- @Ben Hunt @EpsilonTheory

"We have a market reality of unbelievable leverage that is available for private gain, and put forward by entities where their losses are socialized." - Ben Hunt
"One thing that's fascinating - or sad - is how wrong the mainstream media has gotten all of this, how badly they've missed it, how the coverage is horrible, and how the coverage is sold to the masses almost like Russian propaganda."

- Marc Cohodes @AlderLaneeggs
"If you can borrow $100 billion at 3 and 30, and go for broke, you can make billions and billions for yourself, and if you lose, so what? It's on the banks' books." - Cohodes
"I think his [Hwang] fund was a front for very bad actors...aka money launderers, which is why everything was disguised as a 'family office' - air quotes around that." - Cohodes
"There's no better way to launder money and to get excess wealth than excess leverage in financial markets." - Cohodes
I think they're [Softbank] the absolute hub of all of this...I think they're ground zero..." - Marc Cohodes

"The Japanese financial system is increasingly corrupt...It goes back to...artificially-priced money and a complete zombification, so that there is no corporate penalty at the highest levels for taking these kind of risks"

- Ben Hunt #TokioMarine #Softbank #Nomura
"I don't know what it's going to take to get the regulators to do their jobs...the media doesn't seem to care much about anything, they're too busy fighting social justice wars and politics." - Bill Fleckenstein


@SenSherrodBrown @SenWarren
"I personally don't think the regulators have any clue about what's been going on."- Fleck

I hate when I learn something new (to me) & stunning about the Jeff Epstein network (h/t MoodyKnowsNada.)

Where to begin?

So our new Secretary of State Anthony Blinken's stepfather, Samuel Pisar, was "longtime lawyer and confidant of...Robert Maxwell," Ghislaine Maxwell's Dad.
"Pisar was one of the last people to speak to Maxwell, by phone, probably an hour before the chairman of Mirror Group Newspapers fell off his luxury yacht the Lady Ghislaine on 5 November, 1991." scotsman.com/news/obituarie…
OK, so that's just a coincidence. Moving on, Anthony Blinken "attended the prestigious Dalton School in New York City"...wait, what? jewishvirtuallibrary.org/tony-blinken

Dalton School...Dalton School...rings a bell

If you want to see what our thought police are up to today, there's a "Combating Online Misinformation and Disinformation" House hearing today.
@HouseCommerce @EnergyCommerce

Did the Soviets have hearings like this?
Oh, I get it - it's a corporatist struggle session.

Arianna was great on "Green Acres"
I'm gonna need a "60-second reset" to recover from that interview.
My company, Thriving Reset, is teaming up with Zoom to milk millions from desperate corporate HR departments using my "45-second reset" de-stressing techniques.

We cut 15 seconds off Arianna's methods.

8 hours a day per employee - that's 2 extra minutes of work every day.

"You always have winners and losers — Blackstone was a huge winner coming out of the global financial crisis, and I think something similar is going to happen." - Stephen Schwarzman, Dec. 9, 2020 $BX

Steve was right!

Yes, you always have winners and losers.

The problem is, it's always the same winners and the same losers (and the same publicists). Image
