Bernie Sanders asks Ben Bernanke who got the $2.2 trillion. Ben Bernanke basically tells him to f*ck off.



When the government loses control of the financial affairs of the land, what does that say about the land?

It truly is amazing.

Amazing.

Damn, those grifters were good.

Real good.

Bernanke said "According to the law..."

LOL - what law? He and Paulson told Congress last year that absent any restrictions, his understanding was that the Fed could do any deal it pleases. IOW they could make shit up as they go along, and there is nothing anyone can do about it.

All of this BS and posturing is moot anyway. Obama's butt boy, Larry Summers, will replace Bernanke at the end of his term later this year. That's when the real fun begins.

Ben Bernanke answers to NO one.

He is the Grand Ayatollah of the Federal Reserve.

I believe a short vacation in Guantanamo would do him a world of good.

It's a 100 year old fraud.

And what do you mean by "those grifters were good"?

What's with the past participle?

These grifters are still very much in control!!!

Your buddy Obama is one of them! And he's one of the best damn grifters we've ever seen!

He's the guy that is giving more outrageous power over the US economy to this private cartel of foreign bankers!!

It's time for you to wipe those Kool-Aid tears out of your eyes Keith and see Obama for what he is.

He is the flim flam man. The ultimate CONfidence gamer delivered to you by the psychopathic-elite-globalist-banking-cartel.

I told you over and over during the primaries that Obama was all style and no substance. It was very evident in his speeches and debates. No commitments. No coherent philosophy behind his ideas except "change" and "hope".

He is the very opposite of a Ron Paul. Ron Paul is zero style and all substance. A guy that deeply understands every issue, has a philosophy that is fundamentally American with a total commitment to liberty and deep understanding of American history. Ron Paul's delivery stinks but his speeches are overflowing with substance.

And PS - Ron Paul doesn't need a frickin TELEPROMPTER!!

All Mr. Sanders needs to do is read the financial news on the internet

or he can come visit this site and We’ll give him a straight answer:

Mr Sanders:
The money went to bailout Saudi Arabia’s investment in Citi

Cause without their oil we’re dead.

Keith,

Where is the HYPERINFLATION dude? Where is Schiff? Is he around, cause he should be looking real closely at today's CPI numbers. Man, he probably feels like an idiot right about now.

The first negative CPI reading since 1950? What's up with that?

Bernanke is out-of-control, clueless, without solutions and Must Go. He has cashed his last check.

I would be careful getting on any airplane that Bernanke is on...

Think of the terror strike recently and a late-model state-of-the-art passenger jet just Fucking disappears over water? Boom. No Clues? A submarine has to go find parts and pieces? Are you shitting me?

Bernanke may underestimate the cuurent rage of the American people against him and all the others, and like the old saying goes 'lots of rifles for sale, never fired and only dropped once..."

Ben's days in power are numbered, 8-5 in Vegas sees him thrown under a bus.

Fuck You, Bernanke. You are universally hated and seen as a bad joke worldwide.

Nevermore.

Why not Senator Sanders, he earned it.

Look, how does the guy sign his name on the receipt when you give him the money?

Two trillion stolen by the mafiocracy and still no pitchforks. What the hell happened to the revolutionary spirit man? The population should be enraged beyond all means of peaceful control. There should be burning cars in all the streets and people like Ben should be skulking of to Angola or Surinam to live out their lives in hiding.

It aint gonna happen though man. Pass the Victory Gin, Winston.

A summary of his comments:

1. Mr. Obama is a very intellectual, charming individual. He is not to be underestimated. He is a ‘cool customer’ who doesn't show his emotions. It's very hard to know what's ‘behind the mask’. Taking down the Clinton dynasty from a political neophyte was an amazing accomplishment.
2. Obama has political skills comparable to Reagan & Clinton. He has a way of making you think he's on your side, agreeing with your position, while doing the opposite. Pay no attention to what he SAYS; rather, watch what he DOES!

3. Obama has a ruthless quest for power. He did not come to Washington to make something out of himself, but rather to change everything, including dismantling capitalism. He can’t be straightforward on his ambitions, as the public would not go along. He has a heavy hand, and wants to ‘level the playing field’ with income redistribution and punishment of the achievers of society. He would like to model the USA after Great Britain or Canada .

4. His three main goals are to control ENERGY, PUBLIC EDUCATION, & NATIONAL HEALTHCARE by the Federal Government. He doesn't care about the auto or financial services industries, but got them as an early bonus. The cap & trade will add costs to everything and stifle growth. Paying for FREE college education is his goal. Most scary is healthcare program, because if you make it FREE and add 46,000,000 people to a Medicare-type single-payer system, the costs will go through the roof. The only way to control costs is with massive RATIONING of services, like in Canada . God forbid.

5. He’s surrounded himself with mostly far-left academic types. No one around him has ever run even a candy store. But they’re going to try and run the auto, financial, banking and other industries. This obviously can’t work in the long run. Obama’s not a socialist; rather a far-left secular progressive bent on nothing short of revolution. He ran as a moderate, but will govern from the hard left. Again, watch what he does, not what he says.

6. Obama doesn’t really see himself as President of the USA, more as a ruler over the world. He sees himself above it all, trying to orchestrate and coordinate various countries and their agendas. He sees moral equivalency in all cultures. His apology tour in Germany & England was a prime example of how he sees America, as an imperialist nation that has been arrogant, rather than a great noble nation that has at times made errors. This is the first President ever who has chastised our allies and appeased our enemies!

7. He’s now handing out goodies. He hopes that the bill (and pain) will not ‘come due’ until after he’s reelected in 2012. He’d like to blame all problems on Bush from the past, and hopefully his successor in the future.

8. Republicans are in the wilderness for a while, but will emerge strong. We’re ‘pining’ for another Reagan, but there’ll never be another like him. He believes Mitt Romney, Tim Pawlenty and Bobby Jindahl (except for his terrible speech in Feb.) are the future of the party. Newt Gingrich is brilliant, but has baggage. Sarah Palin is sincere and intelligent, but needs to really be seriously boning up on facts and info if she’s to be a serious candidate in the future. We need to return to the party of lower taxes, smaller govt., personal responsibility, strong national defense, and states’ rights.

9. The current level of spending is irresponsible and outrageous. We’re spending trillions that we don’t have. This could lead to hyper inflation, depression or worse. No country has ever spent themselves into prosperity. The media is giving Obama, Reid and Pelosi a pass because they love their agenda. But eventually the bill will come due and people will realize the huge bailouts didn’t work, nor will the stimulus package. These were trillion-dollar payoffs to Obama’s allies, unions and the Congress to placate the left, so he can get support for #4 above.

I think Bernanke will eventually be knighted, or at least made a Czar, by our God-King Barack Hussein Obama.



That's right; I called him for what he is. If you think I'm crazy, just wait a little bit longer. You'll see then...

All bow before your God-King and his minions. They can do what they want, when they want, and how dare you question them you FREAKIN insolent ... (please fill-in the blank). ;-)

Obama's very mannerisms have shifted severely over the past few months. He went from the "great guy" everyone loves and who will save us from ourselves..., to a more sinister dictator. He's appointing people who answer to no-one (the Czars) and the people of this country say nothing. AMAZING!!!

Everyone, even the President, answers to the people. People like Bernanke should be stoned to death for playing the part they played in destroying this country. And Obama needs to remember what "We the People..." stand for and gain some humility.

Seriously, when is everyone going to have enough of this crap? Let's do how they do in some Muslim countries, cut off their heads and play soccer in the street. Or at the very least, lets throw some shoes at the mother-f*****. After all, we are a "Muslem Country", as per our God-King.

Charles said...

Keith you owe it to yourself and your BLOG to do a call out piece on Obama's crony capitalism.

It's not that he's a Zionist plant of the bankers or any of this other conspiracy theory BS. The fact is he's more of a socialist than he let on prior to election (and I don't consider single payer socialism per say...) and is nothing ore than a tool much as Bill Clinton was once elected.

It's well known he had his "facts of life" talk with Greenspan shortly after reaching office and did a 180 degree sellout of the populist platform he ran on.

Obama is concerned with Obama. His own legacy and what he thinks is good for the people. Definitely not what is TRULY good for the people (i.e. more liberty and freedom)

In other words....

He s a politician :-)

No one I know is in a rage. I don't know anybody outside my front door who gives a hoot in hell about the economy of the USA.

Until it becomes personal, they just don't care.

You are attributing qualities to Americans that they just don't possess.

Sorry.

Anonymous said...

JaneZ, there are some folks who still care and right now quite a few of them in Utah are mad as hornets. The Interior Dept. decided to arrest some folks and charge them with stealing artifacts from Indian lands. The suspects were mostly old men and instead of calmly walking up and taking them into custody, the Feds decided to play bad-ass and called in their goon squads. As with Waco, they were going to make an example of these people and show authority. A SWAT team of seventeen agents in full armor dragged a 78 year old guy out of his house with such violence, they broke both of his feet. Another old man James Redd, the town doctor for decades, was so distraught by his treatment, he hung himself.

Thousands of people came to the doctor's funeral, and the federal offices in the area are now under 24 hour guard. I see trouble down the road. These people are angry, and this story isn't over.

After all these posts attacking Iran that have popped up lately, tell me ... what is the difference between Iran and the US? The Fed Res ARE the mullahs of America - they control America just like the mullahs control Iran.

Anonymous said...

they should have asked all the questions before they gave him and paulson a blank check.

they are monkeys keith.

Singular said...

And you know what? The mullahs of Iran are opposed to the Fed Reserve and to any central banks in general. If the mullahs are toppled, the central banks will move in. And THAT is why you hear about Iran 24 hours in the media. They want regime change so that they can move in their central banks and take over financial control. These Fed Res guys do not give a hoot's ass about 'freedom', 'human rights' and 'free speech' in Iran (or anywhere else for that matter) - all they care about is running over any opposition to the establishment of central banks around the world - because once they can get a central bank into a country, they control the country. So you won't hear one hundredth about what is going on in Saudi Arabia that is going on in Iran even though Saudi Arabia is 100x worse than Iran. Because Saudi Arabia has let the central bankers in.

Iran is only one of four countries left in the world that does not have a central bank. And it is no coincidence that these four countries are demonized daily in the media.

Singular said...

Why all the ire against Obama? Every second post by some people is an Obama-bashing one. Obama is just a tool of the central bankers. Obama cannot clean up the financial mess. He knows it, and the central bankers know it. He is just doing custodian duties until America collapses. He is there to make Americans feel good about themselves - to be more hopeful than they might be with someone else as president. Obama's hands are tied. He can't upset the boat even if he wanted to. The problems with America's economy go way back, long before Obama's time.

And Obama's handlers (i.e. FED/Banksters/WS scum) want the FED to OBTAIN EVEN MORE POWER!!!

what a shock

Anyone who think's Obama is anything other than the latest puppet is a fool.

The FED is an unelected independent entity that has no accountability to anyone here in the U.S.

And now they are gonna run the whole show?

The foxes will not only be guarding the hen house, they will be taking any hen they choose anytime they want.

One wonders if the whole financial meltdown was just another example of 1)plan your agenda, 2)cause a problem for a chance to, 3)offer YOUR solution to the problem YOU (FED/Greenspan) caused...thereby advancing your agenda.

It is all about gaining greater and greater control and centralizing all financial policy and authority.

If this is not clear proof that the FED/Bankster/WS "axis of evil" runs this country then I don't know what is.

When the "Obama" bill passes a bloodless coup will have taken place right here on our soil in plain view...and we will have let it happen.
