I think I'm in the same boat as him. The markets keep rising as worse and worse data comes out. I'm at a complete loss here.

Seems like a ratings stunt to me... I bet the dude was going to quit, so the boss decided to give a little extra bonus to Jeff if he could pull off an "I've completely lost it' skit. After all, isn't cnbc like 3rd compared to the other news companies?

Who knows, maybe the guy took drama class in high school..... Which might have made it all the more motivating for the 3rd rate company.

Also, he didn't look high to me. I'm usually pretty good at telling when people are smashed.

Ive been in the currency exchange market for 10 years, and I understood him completely. He wasn't just going off the deep end, there were code words he was using. Thanks for the post. Goes back to making $$$ the old fashion way.

"This video is not available at this time."
I wonder why that might be?

Actually he made perfect sense. The market is what doesn't make sense. We HAVE NO PRODUCTION. We have made nothing, sold nothing, bought nothing, the economy is backward, people are losing their jobs and we're still making a profit?

Screw it. Might as well go crazy too right? Whose gonna notice?

Here, I'll post what I posted Here:

Well, if we follow the body of evidence leading from September of '08 all the way to now and asked one simple question, this is what we would come up with:

Banks are closing, Chrysler is bankrupt, we've taken huge losses in retail, we have no manufacturing, 401k's are still at risk and many are losing value. China is waging a very intelligent and strategic attack on our finances by attempting to debase the dollar. All but 3 States are going broke, and bond markets are not looking good in the future as debt begins to mount.

Where's the money coming from?

The only money flowing is from the Federal government who is propping these industries up, and paying for the continuing of failed foreign policy in IOUs. Of course this is manipulation. One would have to be an idiot to believe that negative production can produce profits. This is a short term spike and it will not last, especially when inflation gets out of hand.

You're not the only one who has posed this question. There's alot of high profile people who are having the same basic problem. The profits are somehow there but the production and recovery are most certainly not...If recovery is no longer a prerequisite to profits then I have no idea what planet I'm on that math like this makes sense.

projectvxn, I agree with you, I think too that is what he was trying to convey, that the current market makes no sense...but possibly he was so full of anger, confusion, disgust, frustration, and/or some mind-altering substance that he could not communicate clearly his mind's thoughts...

I do believe that MR. Macke is just tired of all the BS that is fed to us.
Honestly, I dont know how CNBC has gone so long without an outburst like this. The markets are in bizarro world and the layman is ignoring it to his fullest ability.

posted on May, 21 2009 @ 02:26 AM
I thought it was absolutely hilarious. I laughed and laughed. The markets go up when they should be skyrocketing downward based on all of the terrible news. It truly is the twilight zone. Macke was just making that point. If you watch the markets daily, that would have been obvious to you. He was not crazy. The other people trying to make a positive spin on the current market is what is crazy. Macke must have hit the breaking point, but he was right on target, and very funny to boot.

Couldn't find the video at the link provided, but luckily someone already uploaded it at youtube.

Direct Link:

Honestly he does sound like he's ampped up and ranting, but I wonder if he was fishing for a way to get his message across that wouldn't get him in (as much) trouble.

Here's some info on him, and there is a working link to the CNBC hosted video there as well:

Maybe getting High is the key to decoding his message....

I got the message loud and clear.

The stock market is a game; a rigged one at that.

I've been a stock/option trader/analyst for years and the only reason I watched CNBC was to stay aware of what the next disinformation campaign was going to be so I could Short it. When they say buy, buy, buy, it's time to Short, Short Short or buy a put option or two.

Even the best Analysts out there (that aren't on the payroll of Another) get it wrong time and again because of all the bookkeeping/accounting fraud on the 'Books'.

I would have to say, that besides the Yahoo stock message boards, I've never seen more paid Trolls and Plants spew so much disinformation, lies and deceit than what I witnessed on CNBC. One becomes numb to it after a while.

Try complaining to the SEC or the FBI and it reminds me of the movie, "Carrie" when the crowd exclaims, "They're all going to laugh at you". Sure enough, the bucket of Blood is poured over Carrie for all to witness. The crowd in the scene is Wall Street and the one on the stage Carrie (yourself).

I can't count how many times brokers and brokerage firms have been caught committing various acts of fraud, theft, embezzlement only to admit no guilt in court, pay a small fine, NO CONVICTION (while retaining the LOOT they defrauded you with in the first place), and be on their way to do more harm unto the average investor. Crime truely does pay in the brokerage industry.

Market makers and Specialists work for the Brokerage firms and their financiers not the public.

I'll have to 'assume' you weren't informed of the 'news' below? I would guess-timate only 5% of what you see below was even 'reported' in the first place though I could be wrong?

Financial Crimes reported to the Public?

I was able to nail a few of them though Wow, they are like weasels, hard to get a hold of and always has hole with a 'Bull' standing guard.

While Martha was being scapegoated, the real criminals ran off with some SERIOUS loot of which would often end up being money laundered through a series of offshore banks with non-disclosure laws and non-extradition covering their tracks along the way.

Naked shorts, derivatives, mortgage backed securities, credit default swaps and the like were all created by Design to crash the world's financial systems so YOU are left begging the NWO International bankster folk for a solution they created in the first place. If their 'successful' in their efforts, they'll get their ONE World currency along with a one world politic, economy, legal system, religion and then some while further eliminating your Rights at the same time. Truely, Unbelievable.

If the public only Knew how they have been taken, Wall Street would be flooded with a Sea of Blood.

Must have touched a nerve.

Cocaine is a hell of a drug.

This guy is acting exactly the way someone who is coked up does. He's speaking and saying things that he thinks should be blowing your mind, but in reality what he's saying makes no sense what-so-ever.

You can tell he thinks what he's saying is some sort of revelation, like he's "on the outside looking in" or something. As if he has some unique perspective and he's the first person in history to realize his new thought.

He's also using language suggesting that he knows what the host is thinking, even the viewers. Listen to it again and you'll see glimpses of that.

My opinion is the dude just did some rails and thought no one would notice.

The video you linked to does not play anymore, at least not on my computer.

Well, Cocaine is the drug of choice on Wall Street though regardless of whether he was under the influence or not, at least he was still conscious of what he was saying so he may not be sued for being 'mis-spoken'.

Like videos, here's some more:

I can't hear You!

These fellows going on about Billions of fraud, how about TRILLIONS in fraud (9 Trillion) not accounted for by the FED! To this day, we Still don't have the answers for according to the LAW, the Fed doesn't have to answer to anyone. They are above the law they created in the first place! GET IT BACK. Audit, audit, audit! Yeah, good luck Junior.

They Push and push some more, you shove?
Reminds me of a chicken coup.

there are many ancient prophecies the world over that fortell the return
of the car people. so don t LOL laugh.

I think this is going to happen a lot more.
When they become more and more frustrated.
When they become sick of the lies (this would be a key way of acting out against the lies)
Or they discover the lies for the first time.

To me, he seems very frustrated with the auto industry and so on I think that's clear and he's also frustrated with "the stupid people" who aren't seeing something that he is with the auto business its self.

It's kind of like a joke and everyone isn't in on it but him.

Just you can see it behind his words that he is fueled with some kind of major frustration and anger.

We are going to see a lot more of this though.

It would be interesting to keep tabs on this guy and see what happens with him, he seems like he almost on the verge of letting all the little secrets they hold go out into the air, and possibly this is his warning to "them".

posted on May, 21 2009 @ 04:15 AM
He hasn't lost it - he was laughing because the banks have suddenly gone into total reverse.

The car makers would sound insane to anyone - because they are simply packing up shop and closing down - they have no intention of trying to hold it together.

This guy is funny - certainly not crazy, just sharing an inside joke.

The plan is still to crash the US economy to the bottom - but the Bilderbergers/Zionists want it to happen FASTER - so they are just telling everyone to pack up shop - it will be a big bang - the markets may go up or down, but it will have nothing to do with the economy - its purely a game.

Maybe it's me, but I don't see some sudden revelation taking place in this dude's brain during the show, as some people are suggesting. My guess is that he's in risk of losing his job and the market is in shambles, so he's seriously overworked and overstressed. I've talked like that during finals week when I hadn't slept in literally a few days. I do agree that this man probably sees this market is a walking zombie, raised to life by some voodoo magic (i.e. the Fed), that will soon reek havoc on the innocent villagers (i.e. the world population).

Maybe it was just the stress of being on TV that got to him, and it could have been if it were his first time. I doubt that, however, because he seemed less nervous and more upset, like the rest of us.

posted on May, 21 2009 @ 05:40 AM
He was not loony he is just admitting that that economic indicators and making predictions right now can not be done with any merit. He came across as a little shocking but he is just trying to snap people out of this blind following.

The biggest problems we have :
1. We are using the DOW index as a measure of economic health
2. We expect / hope the DOW index to go back to where it was
3. We expect / hope the housing to go back to where it was

These are all big fallacies. Its wrong to be thinking like this because 1. It won't happen and 2. It shouldn't happen.

Indeed, America is getting drunk on hope, and it is the same repackaged tonic from 20 years ago. It is freakin' ridiculous and it pisses me off to no end that so few have caught on to the fact that NO ONE KNOWS WHAT IS MAKING THE MARKET GO UP. NO...ONE...KNOWS!!! There is no reason for this. The banks didn't suddenly turn a profit, GM/GMAC and Chrysler are in bankruptcy several thousand jobs are going to disappear, as well as taxes on those lots, the federal government is going to go broke bailing the states out, if it hasn't already bailing-out Obama/Bush's friends, and somehow, someway, by some miracle so improbable, the market is up. This is all government cash, and it WILL RUN OUT EVENTUALLY. And my bet is sooner rather than later, I have a far better forecasting record than anyone on CNBC, anybody wanna take a wager I'll be wrong instead of them?

I am just so tired of this crap.

America needs to wake up from this ridiculous unsophisticated propaganda program, or they're going to be in for one big effing surprise.

Jeff is upset that he cannot make heads or tales of the markets. Thats what he wants you to think anyway. Like many power players on Wall Street, Jeff called his contacts at the big three and was getting the run around trying to figure out where the companies were going.

Patience and money over time is the key. Remember you have all been conditioned to sound bytes, 2.5-3 minute songs, and e mediate gratification through on demand services. Be strong my comrades.

The average Joe should buy into all stocks on the markets and go long. Sit on everything for 4-5 years. If the world does not implode you'll be a happy camper. If the world implodes your dollars will not matter anyway!
