    Partially, but in that case the statement is often an action itself that helps move the political momentum, just like I said about his bad statements on guns. In this case we are waiting for Trump's statement and I have already said he should be criticized if it is bad.

    Commenting on what Trump might do before he does it and condemning him for what you imagine he might do is just dumb. Trump is not consistent.

    I was wrong about the oil quality, since reading more articles I found out that it is mostly light oil so that changes the list of alternate suppliers. MBS loses if the IPO fails so anyone who hates him wins, and the people he was going to force to invest in it win if it gets cancelled.

    Almost 400 Microsoft employees have decided to go "open source" with their salaries, in an attempt to turn the tables on management and determine whether or not they are being fairly compensated, according to OneZero. The movement to share salaries with each other started from a private Facebook group called "Young Microsoft FTE", where full time employees (FTEs) spend time discussing the company. They have been collecting each others salaries in a Google spreadsheet. The 400 employees participating are a small sub-sect of Microsoft's more than 140,000 workers. “Share your anonymous info so we can all get paid more together,” the objective at the top of the document states. The sheet looks at the details of how compensation is broken down for Microsoft employees and tracks years of experience, years at the company, percentage of merit-based raises, base pay and stock compensation. It also includes cash bonuses. Some employees have made note of special stock awards, which generally mark signing bonuses or milestone achievements. Interestingly, the spreadsheet did not note gender. We don't know if they just felt it was an irrelevant metric or if they didn't want to offend any West Coast liberals by forcing them to identify as a gender. Regardless, Microsoft employees are situated on a scale that starts at level 59 and goes to level 80. Employees are hired at a certain level, and then can be promoted to new levels as they remain at the company. The typical employee who submitted data to the spreadsheet was a Level 62 software engineer based in Washington state. They've been at that level for a year and have been at Microsoft for three years, reporting five years of total experience and a base pay of $150,000. They reported a $20,000 cash bonus and another $15,000 in stock based bonuses. The data shows that an employee's "level" is the greatest indicator of compensation at Microsoft, as opposed to overall experience or time spent at the company. It is rare that lower level employees are paid more than higher level employees.

    A sudden explosion at a Siberian virus research center on Monday reportedly left the facility engulfed in flames, according to several Russian news outlets. Firefighters and other emergency personnel were dispatched to the "Vector Institute" located several miles from Novosibirsk - an emergency which was upgraded "from an ordinary emergency to a major incident," according to RT, due to the research center for virology and biotechnology housed in the facility - however the mayor of Koltsovo said there were no biologically dangerous substances in the area where the explosion occurred, and that the Vector laboratory was not in use at the time. The State Research Center of Virology and Biotechnology Vector, also known as the Vector Institute, is a biological research center in Koltsovo, Novosibirsk Oblast, Russia. It is analogous to both the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the US Army Chemical and Biological Defense Command. It has research facilities and capabilities for all levels of Biological Hazard, CDC Levels 1-4. Of note, Vector is reportedly one of two places worldwide where smallpox is stored. The laboratory is known for having developed vaccines for Ebola and hepatitis, as well as for studying epidemics and genera issues surrounding immunology. During the Cold War, it was thought to be part of now-defunct Soviet biological weapons program, meaning that some of the most dangerous strains – including that of smallpox, Ebola, anthrax and certain plagues – are still being kept inside the Institute’s building. With that in mind, a local branch of the Emergencies Ministry swiftly responded to the call, sending in 13 fire engines and 38 firefighters, who entered the six-story building minutes after arrival. -RT

    Who would have thought that JPMorgan's precious metals trading desk is the functional equivalent of the mafia, and that its one-time leader, Blythe Masters, was the mafia's don? Well, almost everyone who didn't mind being designated a conspiracy theorist for years. And now comes vindication, because this has just been confirmed by the DOJ, which accused the PM trading desks at JPMorgan of being deeply involved in what prosecutors described as a "massive, multiyear scheme to manipulate the market for precious metals futures contracts and defraud market participants." In an indictment unsealed on Monday morning, the DoJ charged Michael Nowak, a JPMorgan veteran and former head of its precious metals trading desk and Gregg Smith, another trader on JPM's metals desk, in the probe. (Blythe Masters was somehow omitted). “Based on the fact that it was conduct that was widespread on the desk, it was engaged in in thousands of episodes over an eight-year period -- that it is precisely the kind of conduct that the RICO statute is meant to punish,” Assistant Attorney General Brian Benczkowski told reporters. Here's where it gets extra interesting: according to Bloomberg, the unusually aggressive language language embraced by prosecutors reminds legal experts of indictments utilizing the RICO Act - a law allowing prosecutors to take down 'criminal enterprises' like the mafia by charging all members of the organization for any crimes committed by an individual on behalf of the organization. Prosecutors charged the head of JP Morgan’s global metals trading operation and two other traders with "conspiracy to conduct the affairs of an enterprise involved in interstate or foreign commerce through a pattern of racketeering activity" - language that is typically used to describe a RICO charge. This hints at the possibility of a deeper prosecution for JP Morgan. Already, 12 people have been charged in the precious metals market-rigging conspiracy.

    In what has become an Alanis Morissette-level irony, the US is now back on the brink of all-out war with Iran, less than one week after the administration's biggest Iran hawk was shown the door. Having read the writing on the wall, the Iranians have decided to release a UK-flagged oil tanker that they have had in detention for nearly two months, Bloomberg reports. The decision to release the UK tanker comes a few weeks after Britain released the Iranian-flagged Grace 1/Adrian Darya 1 tanker, a decision that the UK swiftly came to regret after the tanker appeared to violate assurances that it wouldn't deliver its cargo of oil to Syria (violating EU sanctions in the process). The UK tanker, the Stena Impero, will be released "in days," according to Abbas Mousavi, spokesman at the foreign ministry in Tehran. The judicial process to clear the ship for release is nearly finished, and once it's done, the ship can leave Iran. Iran seized the ship on July 19 in retaliation for the UK's seizure of the Adrian Darya 1.

    With the war drums beating loudly ever since Mike Pompeo accused Iran of launching the drone strike that crippled Aramco oil production, moments ago the odds of an imminent war with Iran de-escalated materially after President Trump said it was "looking like Iran was behind this weekend’s attacks" on Saudi oil facilities, but added that "he doesn’t want to go war with anyone." "It’s certainly looking that way at this moment," Trump says in response to a question whether Iran was responsible for the attacks. "I don’t want to have war with anybody” but our military is prepared, Trump says at the White House, where he was meeting with Bahrain Crown Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa. Furthermore, the president said the US is not looking at retaliatory options until he has "definitive proof" that Iran was responsible for attacks on Saudi Arabian oil facilities. Still, Trump told reporters in the Oval Office that the US "is prepared" if the attacks warrant a response. Also notably, when asked if he has promised to protect the Saudis, the president responded "No, I haven’t promised the Saudis that... We have to sit down with the Saudis and work something out."

    On Saturday, Saudi Arabia promised that it would provide much needed information about the scope and severity of its damaged facilities within 48 hours, yet has so far failed to do so, leaving commodity traders scrambling and dependent on rumors and innuendo, to evaluate just how long the output shortage would last and how much oil would be taken offline for at least a few days (and potentially as long as months). In retrospect, it now appears that we won't be getting a detailed update any time soon because as the WSJ reports, the Saudis themselves have no idea what is going on, and are seeking "clarity on damage." As a result, Saudi Arabia - which last week was said to be fast tracking its Aramco IPO after numerous delays - is once again said to be considering a delay for the IPO of the world's most valuable company (its market cap is said to be $1.5-$2 trillion when it goes public), as the attacks have added "a fresh element of risk for international investors hoping to take part in Aramco’s initial public offering of stock", the WSJ reports. Separately, Bloomberg reports that Aramco officials "are growing less optimistic that there will be a rapid recovery in oil production after the attack on the giant Abqaiq processing plant", although here too there is no official disclosure but rather "a person with knowledge of the matter" is the source. While Aramco has been gearing up for a two-part IPO, in which it hopes to first sell a sliver of itself to investors on the local Saudi exchange, and then list shares internationally, the weekend attack puts into focus another new risk, unusual for most companies planning an IPO: the threat of more attacks that might bottle up production by cutting revenue and profit, or otherwise shake investor confidence in Aramco’s longer-term investment value. The Aramco delay would also be a disastrous start to the new Saudi energy minister, MbS's older brother, Abdulaziz bin Salman, or AbS, who as we reported last weekend, unexpectedly replaced Khalid al Falih as the Kingdom's top energy official: The attack also comes at a sensitive time for Aramco leadership. Khalid al Falih, who until recently led both Aramco, as chairman, and the country’s oil sector, as energy minister, was earlier this month relieved of those positions. Two officials untested by crises of this kind are now in charge: Yaser Rumayyan, who leads Saudi Arabia’s main sovereign-wealth fund, now heads Aramco and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ’s older brother, Abdulaziz bin Salman, is just days into his new job as energy minister. A delay is also bad news for all the banks that were recently tapped to prepare the market for the monstrous IPO.

    OPEC has sufficient spare capacity to respond to supply shortages after this weekend’s attacks on oil infrastructure that took more than half of Saudi Arabia’s oil production offline, Suhail Al Mazrouei, the energy minister of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), said on Monday. “We have spare capacity, there are volumes that we can deal with as an instant reaction but we need to analyse the full impact, and the assessment of the incident is under way in Saudi Arabia,” Al Mazrouei said, as carried by The National. The UAE will support Saudi Arabia, if needed, he added. “We as the UAE, as a member of OPEC, stood fast and ready to support KSA in any shape or form. The technical side, from supply, if there is a shortage. We have certain capacity that we can put in the market,” Al Mazrouei said. Still, the UAE energy minister, as well as OPEC’s Secretary General Mohammad Barkindo, said it was too early to rush into emergency meetings and put extra supply on the market, at least until Saudi Aramco provides the first updates about how long it would take to restore production. The Saudis haven’t declared any force majeure, the situation is under control, and Saudi Arabia has ample supply, OPEC Secretary General Mohammad Barkindo told “Bloomberg Markets: European Open” in an interview on Monday.

    Saudi Arabia’s disrupted oil production may last longer than originally thought, Amrita Sen, chief oil analyst at Energy Aspects Ltd., told Bloomberg on Monday, with full resumption of oil production perhaps not returning for weeks—or even months. Saudi Arabia, too, is holding a more reserved position that initially thought, believing now that less than half the capacity at the Abqaiq processing plant can be restored quickly, according to Bloomberg sources that spoke on condition of anonymity. One of the longer lead-time items of the restoration are Abqaiq’s stabilization towers that separates out the dissolved gas from the crude oil—a distillation process that sweetens sour crude, if you will. Just the specialized parts to repair those towers could take months to get. Five out of the 18 stabilization towards were hit, indicating a “very specific, accurate targeting of those particular infrastructures,” Phillip Cornell, former senior corporate planning adviser to Aramco, cited by Bloomberg. Abqaiq has a capacity of 5.7 million barrels per day of light crude. To compensate, Aramco is bringing back online previously shuttered oilfields, and it is drawing on its oil reserves to cushion the blow. What can’t be compensated for by cranking up idled fields and siphoning off crude reserves is being satisfied by substituting a heavier grade oil—but all these emergency measures have limits. Saudi Arabia’s stockpiles are only sufficient enough to last 26 days, according to Rystad Energy, so if the outage were to last “months” rather than days or weeks, customers may actually feel the supply crunch.

    Saudi Arabia has shut down its 230,000 bpd pipeline carrying Arab Light crude to Bahrain, after this weekend’s attacks took 5.7 million bpd of Saudi oil production—mostly light grades—offline, Reuters reported on Monday, quoting two trade sources. The pipeline with a capacity to ship between 220,000 bpd and 230,000 bpd of Arab Light crude oil from Aramco to Bahrain’s oil company Bapco was closed after the attacks crippled the production of mostly light grades in Saudi Arabia, one of Reuters’ sources said. On Saturday, the Abqaiq facility and the Khurais oil field in Saudi Arabia were hit by attacks, which resulted in the suspension of more than half of Saudi Arabia’s oil production. The onshore Khurais oil field has the capacity to produce 1.2 million bpd of Arab Light, according to EIA estimates. The Abqaiq facility, for its part, is considered to be the most important oil processing plant in the world. The facility processes crude oil from the major Saudi oil fields Ghawar, Shaybah, and Khurais. All those three fields produce Arab Light or Arab Extra Light. Ghawar has the capacity to pump 5.8 million bpd of Arab Light, while Shaybah has a capacity of 1 million bpd of Arab Extra Light, according to EIA estimates based on data from Saudi Aramco, Arab Oil and Gas Journal, and IHS Markit. While the Saudis closed the oil pipeline to Bahrain, the Bahraini company Bapco is scrambling to secure tankers to ship some 2 million barrels of crude oil from Saudi Arabia, the trade sources told Reuters. Bapco has shut down a crude distillation unit at the Sitrah refinery, while another crude distillation unit, a vacuum distillation unit, and a visbreaker unit have reduced their run rates to 45 percent, Reuters reported, citing an alert to clients sent by research company IIR.

    Too many different people to go by. Any non-middle east oil industry, Israel geopolitically, the deepstate, any enemy of China, any enemy of the Saudis or any enemy of Europe. Iran, Venezuela, and Canada are major sources of similar quality oil. And that's just an off the cuff list.
