Ambrose Evans-Pritchard Repents for His Fed Love



Yesterday the Telegraph's Ambrose Evans-Pritchard poured out his guilty heart and soul begging for forgiveness for endorsing the Fed's unique QE measures of late. He very clearly denounces the monetary crackheads at 20th and Constitution and calls out Bernanke for what he is: an old school psychopath in a new school world.

The Telegraph:

I apologise to readers around the world for having defended the emergency stimulus policies of the US Federal Reserve, and for arguing like an imbecile naif that the Fed would not succumb to drug addiction, political abuse, and mad intoxicated debauchery, once it began taking its first shots of quantitative easing.

My pathetic assumption was that Ben Bernanke would deploy further QE only to stave off DEFLATION, not to create INFLATION. If the Federal Open Market Committee cannot see the difference, God help America.

We now learn from last week’s minutes that the Fed is willing “to provide additional accommodation if needed to … return inflation, over time, to levels consistent with its mandate.”

NO, NO, NO, this cannot possibly be true.

Ben Bernanke has not only refused to abandon his idee fixe of an “inflation target”, a key cause of the global central banking catastrophe of the last twenty years (because it can and did allow asset booms to run amok, and let credit levels reach dangerous extremes).

Worse still, he seems determined to print trillions of emergency stimulus without commensurate emergency justification to test his Princeton theories, which by the way are as old as the hills. Keynes ridiculed the “tyranny of the general price level” in the early 1930s, and quite rightly so. Bernanke is reviving a doctrine that was already shown to be bunk eighty years ago.

So all those hillsmen in Idaho, with their Colt 45s and boxes of krugerrands, who sent furious emails to the Telegraph accusing me of defending a hyperinflating establishment cabal were right all along. The Fed is indeed out of control.

Good, he should apologize for that sort of disrespectful display. Didn't we all know he was wrong all along? Didn't we all know that the Fed never had a plan to get out? Even if they have a plan we all know they're unlikely to use it until it's far too late but that point is moot since there is not a plan and will not be one.

An apology from Evans-Pritchard would be great except for the fact that his squealing isn't limited to the Fed. How about this jerk off over ECB QE initiatives from March of 2009?

Apology accepted but I expect dude to grab the tissues and come wipe this mess up.

Seppeku is the only honorable way out for dear friend A E-P.

Anyone can see the light and be forgiven, even former drug war prosecutors and Communists-in-their-youth. Glass houses and all that. A. E-P needs to get serious about studying his Austrian economics. If he wants to be forgiven he should be leading the pack towards truth. In my opinion.

Amen, brother. But to JDA's point, redemption comes from a sincere renunciation of the formerly-dark path.

Don't think Ambrose has quite reached bottom yet.

Anon,

CA got my point... You are right, anyone can see the light and should be forgiven, all they need to do is recognize the error of their ways, attempt to remedy the situation and repent. Easy right?

I don't see A E-P saying "shit, I shouldn't have endorsed the Fed!" as repentance, it's more trying to distance himself from his previous opinion now that it is so painfully obvious Bernanke and Co. are out of control.

I fully support repentance. Paul Krugman is welcome to try. Even Alan Greenspan can try it.

But this? He's not asking for forgiveness, he's distancing himself from the car wreck before the paramedics come.

Pictet & Cie Bank –Partners –(1996—2010)-liable.
Peters &Peters – Partners.—(1999----2010)-liable.

The bank and it’s officials/lawyers deliberately withheld crucial documents requested under a High Court order. The bank and it’s officials/lawyers deliberately withheld evidence from the Police, and one of it’s account managers Susan Broadhead gave a false witness statement to the Police.
Another one of it’s managers Nicholas Campiche ( Now Head of Pictet – Alternative Investments.) concocted a letter pretending to be a client and closed his account. The senior partner (Ivan Pictet.) sought to have numerous documents destroyed,along with those copies held in their London office’s of Pictet Asset Management. Initially stating that they were forgeries then their lawyers Peters & Peters – Monty Raphael –and the barrister Charles Flint.Q.C. later had to admit in Court that the documents were genuine.

---------“ Constituents of mine have lost £2 million through fraud. The fraudster used Pictet & Cie - - a French Bank - - and Pictet Asset Management to back the fraud being perpetrated.””

(1) It is a criminal offence for a bank to knowingly act for an undischarged criminal bankrupt in so far as it seeks to assist that criminal bankrupt in the fraudulent movement of monies. ( Money Laundering.)

(2) It is a criminal offence for a bank to lie to the police and the bankrupts trustee in bankruptcy in so far as any knowledge of, or dealings with the bank was refuted .

(3) A bank can be guilty of Contempt of Court if it fails to comply fully with the Courts order for discovery .

(4) The banks contempt is further compounded if it fails to address its error after it is specifically drawn to the to its solicitors attention. ( Monty Raphael).

(5) It is a criminal offence under the Financial Services Act to seek to destroy evidence that might be relevant to an investigation .

(6) It is a criminal offence not to relinquish control of funds to the Trustee immediately the fact of the bankruptcy is drawn to the banks attention.

(7) It is a criminal offence to lie or otherwise obfuscate the lawful and proper enquiries of the F.S.A.

In the F.S.A. cover up , they concluded that there had been “ Rogue” elements in Pictet & Cie’s , London operations . They had been moved from their London Office so who was there left to prosecute. “ Unbelievable.”

On Dec 9th,2008. the complaint was sent to 150 Members of the House Of Lords and 230 Members of Parliament.


*** We thank --David Cameron. M.P. ( Canary Wharf Speech.) Dec. 15th. 2008.
Now--- PRIME MINISTER.

(1) Bankers who behave irresponsibly should face professional consequences.
(2) If anyone is found to have behaved criminally they must be prosecuted.
(3) The F.S.A and the Serious Fraud Office should be following up every lead,
investigating every suspect transaction .
(4) We need to make it 100% clear –those who break the law should face
prosecution.
(5) That we make sure we root out any wrongdoing that may have happened, whoever
is involved, however high or well connected they may be.

*** Were currently waiting to see if the West Yorkshire Police :-
(1) Chief Constable ---- Sir Norman Bettison.
(2) Forces Solicitor ---- Mike Percival.
(3) Head of Economic Crimes Unit.--- Det. Chief Inspector Steven Taylor.

-- continue to attempt to cover this case up like their F.S.A. Counterparts.
If they do “ watch this space”)

We have recently been informed that due to pressure from our M.P. that the Ministry of Justice have asked Lord Myners to investigate our claims that the F.S.A. covered up the illegal activities of Pictet Asset Management. London. They might as well have asked Ivan Pictet to investigate .or Friends Reunited.
Lady Myners on Prix Pictet board.

The consensus of opinion is the Pictet & Cie should be prosecuted , and that their banking licence’s should be taken away in the U.K. ( and fined.)
Their solicitors at Peters & Peters --- struck off and prosecuted..
In America they would have all been in prison for the last seven years.

West Yorkshire Police.

We note that Det Chief Inspector Steven Taylor has been removed as Head of the Economic Crime Unit and demoted to Det. Inspector. ( One down two to go.)
