      China Braces For December D-Day: The “Unprecedented” Default Of A Massive State-Owned Enterprise
      29 Nov 2019

      Something is seriously starting to break in China’s financial system.

      Three days after we described the self-destructive doom loop that is tearing apart China’s smaller banks, where a second bank run took place in just two weeks – an unprecedented event for a country where until earlier this year not a single bank was allowed to fail publicly and has now had no less than five bank high profile nationalizations/bailouts/runs so far this year – the Chinese bond market is bracing itself for an unprecedented shock: a major, Fortune 500 Chinese commodity trader is poised to become the biggest and highest profile state-owned enterprise to default in the dollar bond market in over two decades.

      In what Bloomberg dubbed the latest sign that Beijing is more willing to allow failures in the politically sensitive SOE sector – either that, or China is simply no longer able to control the spillovers from its cracking $40 trillion financial system – commodity trader Tewoo Group – the largest state-owned enterprise in China’s Tianjin province – has offered an “unprecedented” debt restructuring plan that entails deep losses for investors or a swap for new bonds with significantly lower returns.


      And as furious bondholders scramble to demand an explanation how a state-owned enterprise can default, Beijing is already bracing for the inevitable next steps: earlier this month, Tianjin State-owned Capital Investment and Management, an entity wholly-owned by the Tianjin municipal government, was appointed to manage the company’s offshore debt. For now, the entity has no plan to hold controlling stakes in Tewoo Group, although that will likely change as soon as the company’s financial situation fails to improve. Meanwhile, Tewoo Group said it plans to take a series of debt management measures, by which we assume it means it will restructure its debt.

      The fact that a state owned enterprise such as Tewoo has just days before it defaults, in either a prepack or “freefall” form, suggests that Beijing will no longer bail out troubled SOEs, let alone private firms, perhaps due to the strains imposed by the economy which is slowing the most in three decades. It also raises concerns over Tianjin, where it’s based, following a series of rating downgrades and financing difficulties suffered by some of the city’s state-run firms. The metropolis near Beijing also has the highest ratio of local government financing vehicle bonds to GDP in China.

      In short, if there a glitch with Tewoo’s default, the Chinese dominoes could start really falling.


      • Zippy says:

        The above is not specifically the kind of inevitable “disintegration” Dr. Waldron was referring to, but we’ll take what we can get. Financial chaos/collapse will hasten the type to which he WAS referring, the collapse of the CCP.


      • Robert Smith says:

        It’s funny. Just as the 2008 Wall Street bailout didn’t punish the bad actors China might be wondering if they are insulating the bad actors. The problem is there might not be any good actors in this drama.

      That was absolutely fascinating! Wow! Thank you for posting. Just consumed the entire hour with Waldron.

      I have often thought Kissinger was imposed on Nixon just to get China to go to war with America. Mainly because, although I did not know about Nixon’s Chinese girlfriend, I did know Nixon to be very wary and paranoid.

      So, I do not believe he would have willingly wanted to open up China to the extent it was without being cajoled by ‘experts’. Which Kissinger was not. So, this was either total incompetence or Kissinger’s globalist roots grabbing at anything to reduce America’s power.

    An excellent further take on this show of wretched manners by students in Baltimore….

    First Lady Dissed by Wimpy Snowflakes
    By Lloyd Marcus – November 29, 2019

    First Lady Melania Trump was booed by students when she spoke at an opioid awareness summit in Baltimore. Snowflake adults said the students were justified because Melania’s husband hurt their feelings by saying bad things about their city.

    Think about how long all the corruption and mismanagement has really been going on in D.C. I once estimated late 1950s but another reader suggested way back to the 1930s.

    I guess we will never know but it is time for it to stop!

      I think it’s been going on since the very beginning. That’s why I don’t think things are really any worse now than they were before EXCEPT I do believe the spying on Trump is unprecedented.

      I am going to leave this for you right here.

      “Even though the Treaty of Paris ended the Revolutionary War in 1783, the simple fact of our existence threatened the monarchies. The United States stood as a heroic role model for other nations, that inspired them to also struggle against oppressive monarchies. The French Revolution (1789-1799) and the Polish national uprising (1794) were in part encouraged by the American Revolution. Though we stood like a beacon of hope for most of the world, the monarchies regarded the United States as a political typhoid.”

    And this prize A-hole can’t figure out why no NFL team wants to get within ten miles of him. Who wants to take on his crap baggage? Americans LOVE hearing snotty anti-American complaining from multimillionaire athletes. Makes everyone real happy to go back to THEIR jobs every Monday morning. What a jerk.

    The “Sock Rocket” blasts off thanks to President Trump.

    “A slip of the tongue from U.S. President Donald Trump during a speech at a rally in Florida on Tuesday has led to major exposure for a small Calgary company, and more donations for the city’s homeless population.”

    “Trump accidentally said the word “sock rocket” before correcting himself and saying “stock market” when speaking about the economy…A flurry of Twitter users asked what a sock rocket is (and the answer) came from a local, family-run sock business and social enterprise named “Sock Rocket….“We decided eventually to do what any business would do and send out a tweet just innocently thanking him and saying, ‘You know, thanks for the free advertising…We’ve had more publicity in the last day than we’ve had probably in the entire time doing this company.”

    Texas, Nevada drop out of state AG group suing to block Sprint, T-Mobile merger

    Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton had been the only Republican among the state attorneys general who had argued that the deal to combine the No. 3 and No. 4 wireless carriers would lead to higher prices and filed a lawsuit to stop it.

    Also on Monday, Nevada said it would withdraw from the lawsuit in exchange for early deployment of the next generation of wireless in the state, creation of 450 jobs for six years and a $30 million donation to be distributed by Nevada Attorney General Aaron Ford and aimed at helping women and minorities, Ford’s office said.

    Time for the weekly reminder – no FBI or DOJ whistleblowers have come forward on FISA abuse, political spying, Biden/Clinton coverups, etc. Hundreds if not thousands of FBI and DOJ personnel have been involved in these operations to pervert justice and subvert the will of the American people. This is the FBI and DOJ – these are their core values.

  19. Blind no Longer says:

    I am one extremely pissed off Georgia voter right now. Brian Kemp just came out and picked the biggest liberal idiot female (next to Stacy Abrams) to replace Johnny Isakson. Not Doug Collins like so many GA voters wanted, who is as MAGA, and supportive of President Trump. President Trump wanted Collins to replace Isakson in the senate as well, and made it known he wanted Collins.
    Instead dumb ass Kemp has decided to make a huge mistake to appeal to suburban women voters at the encouragement of the dumb ass Nick Ayers, Mike Pence’s boy. This will not go well folks.
    I will post a link about this incredibily stupid and dangerous pick Kemp has decided to make.


  20. linda4298 says: Republican Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz called for a primary challenger to Georgia’s Republican governor after he indicated he would not appoint President Trump’s pick to the Senate.

    Gov. Brian Kemp plans to appoint financial executive Kelly Loeffler to the seat being vacated by Republican Sen. Johnny Isakson at the end of the year. The move defies Trump and other Republican leaders who have urged him to appoint Rep. Doug Collins, a Trump ally.

    Kemp is expected to announce his decision early next week, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.


    • Blind no Longer says:

      Thanks Linda! I read about Nick Ayers lobbying Kemp for this pick over concerns about the women’s vote in GA. Well I can tell Kemp one thing, THIS WOMAN and at least 25 other females who are friends and family, better worry them voting for him next time!!
      I don’t do traitors!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Well; we will see what happens.
        I live in that district; was not at all happy with Isaakson’s attitude towards our President.
        So far, Collins has been responsive when contacted, although some of the locals believe he has something to do with our local news coming from Anderson, South Carolina, rather than Georgia, (which he does not have control over).
        No complaints with Governor Kemp and I follow him regularly.
        However, I do have a problem with articles that only refer to those referenced as “a person familiar with the matter,” or something to that affect ….. and I don’t rely on the accuracy or veracity of that article.
        One thing I do know for sure, VSGPDJT is loyal and he expects that to be mutual.
        Governor Kemp did run DJT’s campaign in Georgia and did an excellent job (IMHO).
        If the governor does backtrack after agreeing with the president on a senate seat, it’s difficult for me to understand his strategy since he must know that President Trump always gets even at the time of his choosing.
        I’m sure we will know in a little while if Kemp and Trump are loyal to one another.
