OMG: “California Won’t Accept Its Own IOUs”
08/06/2009  •  Investment Watch 
Small businesses that received $682 million in IOUs from the state say California expects them to pay taxes on the worthless scraps of paper, but refuses to accept its own IOUs to pay debts or taxes. "Instead of seeking funds through proper channels, the State has created a nightmare," the class says. "Many of these businesses will not survive if they are required to wait until October 2009 to have these forced IOUs redeemed by the State." The class claims the state is violating the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments. It demands that California be ordered to honor its own IOUs, plus interest. They are represented by William Audet.  Read Full Story

A Must Read: The Fed Buys Last Week’s Treasury Notes
08/07/09  •  Investment Watch 
Good grief! Just last week, when the auction results were announced it was trumpeted to great fanfare that there was “more than sufficient” bid-to-cover, “strong demand” and all the rest. And now it turns out that 47% (!) of the bonds that were taken by the primary dealers in that auction have been quietly bought by the Fed and permanently secreted to its balance sheet. They didn’t even wait a full week! A more honest and open approach would have been for the Fed to simply buy them outright at the auction but this way, using “primary dealers” and “POMOs” and all these other extra steps the basic fact that the Fed is openly monetizing US government debt is effectively hidden from a not-too-terribly inquisitive US press and public. The speed of the shell game is accelerating.”  Read Full Story

Six people, including P-D reporter, arrested at Carnahan meeting
08/04/2009  •  StL Today 
UPDATE: St. Louis County police say six people were arrested. Two of those were arrested on suspicion of assault, one of resisting arrest and three on suspicion of committing peace disturbances. Carnahan was gone when the ruckus started. Kenneth Gladney, a 38-year-old conservative activist from St. Louis, said he was attacked by some of those arrested as he handed out yellow flags with “Don't tread on me” printed on them. He spoke to the Post-Dispatch from the emergency room of the St. John's Mercy Medical Center, where he said he was waiting to be treated for injuries to his knee, back, elbow, shoulder and face that he suffered in the attack. Gladney, who is black, said one of his attackers, also a black man, used a racial slur against him before the attack started. “It just seems there's no freedom of speech without being attacked,” he said.  Read Full Story

The effort to discredit and shut down opposition to Obamacare has gone from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid holding up artificial turf and House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi calling opponents Nazis to violence. During a demonstration Thursday evening outside a forum on aging called by U.S. Rep. Russ Carnahan, D-St. Louis, in Mehville, Missouri, a patriot was viciously attacked by union thugs.     Read Full Story

Inside G.E., a Little Bit of Enron
08/07/09  •  NYT 
A decade ago, General Electric was the shining star of American business. Its longtime chief executive, Jack Welch, was named manager of the century by Fortune Magazine, and its stock seemed always to go up. The S.E.C. complaint makes it sound as if those days came back, assuming they ever left. It tells of corporate accountants discovering misstatements and secret side deals, and of more senior executives telling them to sign off on the books anyway. It outlines four separate violations, two of which it says descended to the level of fraud. It is notable how this investigation came to be. Post-Enron, the commission used its authority to look at G.E.’s books to figure out whether there were violations in the area of so-called hedge accounting, which determines whether companies can avoid reporting profits and losses from a variety of derivative securities. The commission evidently found three violations, two in hedge accounting and the other in an Enronesque scheme to inflate  Read Full Story

Foreign holdings of USTs and Agencies increased by $23.5 billion monthly to $2,810 billion from $2,787 billion in the prior month. This is now less than 20% of the comparable increase in Securities Held Outright by the Federal Reserve, implying foreign purchasers are starting to fall far behind in their purchases of US securities relative to the Fed's monetization rate.  Read Full Story

Did Warren Buffett Front Run Tax Payers?
08/06/2009  •  Economic Policy Journal 
There are a lot of questions that need to be answered surrounding the period when Buffett made his investment in Goldman Sachs. First, there is the curious trading I have previously identified by the Senate's No. 2 Democrat, Dick Durbin. Did Durbin buy Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway stock after learning that Buffett via Berkshire was going to buy into Goldman? The public timeline suggests he may have. Now, Denninger raises the question as to what went on in meetings between Buffett and the government. Was Buffett assured before he bought stock in Goldman that the government would not allow Goldman to fail? And just who was buying stock in Goldman and Berkshire that caused the stocks to climb just before it was publicly announced that Buffett was going to take a position in Goldman?  Read Full Story

More Inside Trading? (AIG)
08/07/09  •  The Market Ticker 
Gee, was this just a "simple" short squeeze, or was AIG's surprise profit announcement this morning leaked? Hmmmm..... Not that it would be anything new, of course. We know from past experience that only rumors (or leaked facts!) that make stocks go down are ever investigated by the SEC, and then only when the persons doing the leaking (or rumoring) are not big broker/dealers and their crony hedge funds. This sort of nonsense is nothing new; it is in fact as old as the stock market. But the blatant level of inside baseball during this crisis (and now the rally) has gotten entirely out of hand.  Read Full Story

White House to Democrats: 'Punch back twice as hard
08-07-2009 

“If you get hit, we will punch back twice as hard,” Messina said, according to an official who attended the meeting.

The hourlong session was the last opportunity for Democratic leaders and the White House to prepare senators for what will be a crucial month in shaping public opinion on health care. With no final legislation to promote, senators have expressed concern about dealing with questions and criticisms about the almost $1 trillion overhaul. The spate of confrontational town hall meetings have raised the stakes.

Panic: Unemployment rate already at 20%!!!
08/07/09  •  Investment Watch 
Not to scare you, but the situation is actually worse than it seems. Over the years, the government has changed the way it counts the unemployed. An example of this is the criticized Birth-Death Model which was added in 2000. The model is designed to account for the birth and death of businesses and the resultant lag in survey data. Unfortunately, the model doesn’t work that well during economic contractions (like we have now) and consistently overstates the number of jobs being created each month. John Williams of Shadow Government Statistics specializes in removing these questionable tweaks to the government’s statistical data to better align current numbers with the methodology used to gather historical data. After reviewing the data, Williams believes that “the June jobs loss likely exceeded 700,000.” David Rosenberg of Gluskin Sheff notes that the fall in the number of hours worked in June (to a record low of 33 per week) is equivalent to a loss of more than 800,000 jobs.

The Public Option in Banking
08-07-2009  •  arclein 
In President Obama’s July 17 weekly address, he repeated his call for a public option in health care, in order to “increase competition and keep insurance companies honest” and to “put an end to the worst practices of the insurance industry.” The same call needs to be made for a public option in banking. In some countries, publicly-owned banks have operated alongside privately-owned banks for decades; and in those countries, the current crisis has served to show that public banks generally do a better job of serving the people and protecting their interests than their private counterparts.  Read Full Story

Rolling the dice on AIG The taxpayer-owned insurer, much derided for its blunders in the derivative
08/06/2009  •  CNN 
I posted an article yesterday "AIG Breakup Is Fee Bonanza" by the WSJ I think that might help explain what is going on. Now snippets from the story... Less than a year after it nearly brought down the financial system with a misguided derivatives bet, AIG is everyone's favorite lottery ticket. Shares in the troubled taxpayer-owned insurer have nearly doubled in the days leading up to Friday morning's scheduled release of second-quarter earnings. It is a flurry of speculative enthusiasm that boggles the mind. Even so, given the scope of AIG's problems -- it reported a $99 billion loss last year and survived last fall's market meltdown thanks only to $180 billion in federal support -- it's hard to square the rally with the company's grim outlook. "This is truly a phenomenon," Tabacco said. "I don't know what is going on, but it appears to be the new game in town."  Read Full Story

Cutting out the competition? Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.

Jim Bunning, R-Ky., said Thursday at a hearing of the Senate Banking Committee on the foreclosure crisis. Bunning said Bair made the remarks in a recent meeting. “That means that people who make mortgages in local places …. people that could really help in a foreclosure will not be there,” Bunning said.  Read Full Story

This was apparently first broken by Brian Benton, not Chris Martenson; the original link was to a Financial Sense article (of which I was unaware.) All the previous comments in my other post, however, still apply - here it is in video.... There is also evidence showing up that this was not the first purchase of essentially "as-issued" bonds, especially in the 7-year duration. I am looking into this and will attempt to quantify the percentage of "support" that is in fact monetization, irrespective of what Bernanke said in front of Congress.  Read Full Story
