I saw most of this interview last weekend, and at the time, I was calming down two very psychotic dogs in my basement: Thunder.
(It happens Al Gore.)
And so, while I was watching this interview, I was almost sold on this guy’s story: Timothy Geithner, was overwhelmingly proud that he had saved the world! Yes, he was very proud of saving the average citizen.
You and I have NO idea how very brave and wise this man is. But he was letting us all know, and promoting his new book, Stress Test, which no doubt is another testimony to how little Timothy saved you and I from living in the mud.
And then he started talking about his amazement at President Obama’s leadership. To little Timmy, Obama was the most effective leader he had ever witnessed in his life. Why…he got everyone to talk for hours, and Obama would let everyone talk. What an amazing man! Incredible that Tim (Blame my tax evasion on TurboTax) Geithner, the x- Federal Reserve Leader, the x-Secretary Treasury of the United States, was in complete awe of this great leader…Obama.
Yes, little Timmy loves the guy who piled up more debt than all previous presidents combined.
(Little Timmy must have had Common Core Math.)
If you are just listening to Tim, and don’t think while you are listening–he is very convincing. But..watch how he NEVER mentions that he made us…the litte “paycheck to paycheck” guy, bail out the banks. And our grandchildren’s grandchildren’s. That’s not important.
In Timmy world, the United States IS the big banks, and the multinational Fortune 500 companies, and the rest of us well…we are basically fodder left behind long ago. But–we can eat Taco Bell thanks to Timmy!
(Thanks so much Timmy–bacon went from $2.99 to $8.99. Ever heard of inflation?)
Look how he denies that we bailed out the banks. It was Wall Street that gambled, trillions, MADE trillions, and that’s all thanks to Timmy. But notice how Mr. Geithner is trying to convince us all that he saved the little guy in America, from unemployment.
It’s almost surreal.
Last time I heard, over 93 million Americans were out of work. HALF the country is not working, and living in poverty, and notice he says nothing about our debt: If that’s Timmy’s idea of success I’d hate to see his failure.
But he HAS done a great thing, to the rich, hasn’t he? Their profits have tripled thanks to Timmy, and if you look at it from his point of view, which is to protect the rich, he did a great job.
Brilliant! Write a book! And how about that TARP? Money that was given to Obama’s donors and Solyndra friends. Solyndra collapsed anyway.
If we include all this debt — public debt, intragovernmental debt, and unfunded liabilities — we currently owe at least $79 trillion, 500 percent of GDP, and perhaps as much as $127 trillion, 800 percent of GDP. Most middle class families don’t have a lot of stocks, bonds or other financial assets. The number one asset of American were their homes, and they were decimated by Timmy.
But hey…we still have Wal-Mart! Thanks Tim.
Mr. Geithner admits it was ‘unpopular’ and in the interview he tells Charlie that politicians don’t see the big picture.. ..they should always listen to the bankers…like him…because he knows better.
Nobody Wins when the Oligarchs work together to suck what’s left out of the country that made them rich, richer. The banking industry is a cartel arrangement overseen by the Federal Reserve and shot through with monopoly, privilege, bailout protection and crooks.
Timothy Geithner might be a hero to his friends in D.C. and Wall Street, and to himself, but this nobody, he’s just another elite, lying, self-serving politician. (His recent picture below.)
Although it’s not much, Obama has done one very good thing while in office: He has trashed the Constitution so much, that millions of people, who had never read the Constitution, actually started paying attention to our nation’s “rule of law’ and then exclaiming…”Whoa. He can’t do that.”
Yes he can, and yes he does. Coming up soon, Obama is about to unconstitutionally sign the next globalist wet dream: The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership:
The measure would grant President Obama what is known as “fast track authority” to ram through Congress the Trans-Pacific Partnership with limited debate and no opportunity to propose amendments. The international trade agreement, negotiated largely in secret by the Obama administration, is regarded by globalist free traders as a cornerstone of the emerging “New World Order.” Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, or TAP, to what is being developed as the Trans-Pacific Partnership, or TPP.
The little American nobody businessman is now simply an asterisk on the butt of a fly, sitting on a rock, at the bottom of the Grand Canyon.
As I was listening to Rush Limbaugh today, I must admit, I’m happy that he is siding with the people against the Rino’s in the Republican Party at last..because to not do so would be to admit that he does not side with the Constitution. BUT…Rush still thinks the Rino’s just want to stay in power and are silent because they want to be liked. Because Rush is rich himself, and has supported the big businesses of corporate America for so many years, he has trouble seeing the real problem—- Crony Capitalism —which is just another word for globalization. Mark Levine sees it. Rush hasn’t gotten there yet.
Isn’t it usually, all about the money?
“In the colonies, we issue our own money. It is called Colonial Scrip. We issue it in proper proportion to the demands of trade and industry to make the products pass easily from the producer to the consumers. In this manner, creating for ourselves our own paper money, we control its purchasing power, and we have no interest to pay to no one. The colonies would gladly have borne the little tax on tea and other matters had it not been that England took away from the colonies their money, which created unemployment and dissatisfaction. The inability of colonists to get power to issue their own money permanently out of the hand of George III and the international bankers was the prime reason for the Revolutionary war. “
Benjamin was right. But…the old nemesis of John Adams, Alexander Hamilton, got us back in with the international bankers. And you don’t want to mess with the international bankers. If you bring a stick to the fight, they will bring a thousand stealth bombers, loaded with the latest intergalactic planetary death rays.
Case in Point: Abraham Lincoln enraged the Europeans international bankers by abolishing the country’s central bank. In 1862 he issued about $450 million in currency printed with green ink and they were called green backs. It was debt free fiat money. (Assassinated)
Case in Point: Hitler, did the same thing. He did not borrow from the international bankers and he issued his own debt free money, and put the Germans back to work. Within three years, Germany became an economic powerhouse—and this after the horrible depression they had gone through after the first war.
In Mein Kempt he said this:
“The fight against international finance and loan capital has become the most important point in the program of the German national fight for its independence and freedom. “
And then Winston Churchill said this:
(Just pointing out some similarities here…Hitler was a monster, too bad all the assassination attempts did not succeed.)
Case in Point: John F. Kennedy issued $4.2 billion in United States Notes through the U.S. Treasury rather than the Federal Reserve system in 1963. He then took steps to redirect the foreign investment of U.S. Companies. He wanted tax reform eliminating the tax privileges of US based global investment companies, and he wanted to crack down on foreign tax havens. (assassinated)
Americans have bailed out whole countries to save banks. In 2008, George W. Bush saved the banks. Obama did it again….(he still doing it)
Internet commentator Michael Rivero had this to say about the bailouts :
“In short the US government took your jobs, so the banks could take your homes to cover the losses from this gigantic swindle they were caught playing on the whole world. It is wealth confiscation to protect the banks, just like FDR did in 1933 with the gold.”
No one was punished.
Not all Presidents wanted to jump in with the globalists international bankers. President James a Garfield, said this in 1881.
“Whoever controls the volumes of money in our country is absolute master of all industry and commerce…and when you realize that the entire system is very easily controlled one way or another, by a few powerful met at the top you will not have to be told how periods of inflation and depression originate. (He was assassinated…two weeks later)
It’s never spoken about by our politicians. We print money to keep the stock market up and the rich making dividends while taking money from the middle class and passing it around to the poor. The plan has been to put all the inventions, the patents, the control, into the big multinational corporations. They now control the majority in Congress and Presidents, who only have to look at history to behave themselves.
Obama will continue the international bankers dream of a New World Order and they will keep us thinking that someday, somehow, the politicians in Washington will truly help that little fly at the bottom of the grand canyon.
So…as Nancy Pelosi says, ‘Embrace the suck’…Which in Nancy Pelosi’s mind is the same as “Bend over America—here comes the rest of the suck and you’re going to like it! “
Can the poor little nobody fly sitting on a rock, battle the great international arsenal of wealth?
Obama promised, he would NOT let Detroit go bankrupt.
But today, it happened. The black President had no stimulus to bring back the pensions, the police, the lights, the sanity, OR the jobs. Can we say it’s because he’s a racist? He prefers the rich because he bailed out Wall Street? After all, Detroit ‘s population is 82% black, and Obama hasn’t done a thing for them.
It’s not too hard to figure out. That’s what happens when democrats run the show.
The Detroit metropolitan region currently holds roughly one-half of the state’s population.[ In 1903 Ford founded the Ford Motor Company. Ford’s manufacturing—and those of automotive pioneers William C. Durant, the Dodge brothers, Packard, and Walter Chrysler—reinforced Detroit’s status as the world’s automotive capital; it also served to encourage truck manufacturers such as Rapid and Grabowsky.
With the factories came high-profile labor unions such as the American Federation of Labor & the United Auto Workers which initiated strikes & other tactics in support of such things as the 8-hour day/40-hour work week, healthcare benefits, pensions, increased wages & improved working conditions. The labor activism during those years increased influence of union leaders in the city such as Jimmy Hoffa of the Teamsters and Walter Reuther of the autoworkers.
More than half of the owners of Detroit’s 305,000 properties failed to pay their 2011 tax bills, exacerbating the city’s financial crisis. According to the Detroit News, 47 percent of the city’s taxable parcels are delinquent on their 2011 tax bills, resulting in about $246 million in taxes and fees going uncollected, nearly half of which was due to Detroit. The rest of the money would have been earmarked for Wayne County, Detroit Public Schools, and the library system. The review also found 77 blocks in Detroit had only one owner who paid taxes in 2011.
The resulting elevated unemployment was compounded by white flight and middle-class flight to the suburbs (and in some cases to other states), and the city was left with a reduced tax base, depressed property values, abandoned buildings, abandoned neighborhoods, high crime rates, and a pronounced demographic imbalance. This crisis almost resulted in the state of Michigan taking over administrative control of the city. The state governor declared a financial emergency in March 2013, appointing an emergency manager. On July 18, 2013, Detroit filed for bankruptcy, which will have to be approved by a Judge.
So, Nobody Wonders if the Blacks will EVER understand that the welfare “plantation” is not going to last forever and ever.
In the meantime, we all wonder…what city is next? Or…should I say, what country?
By now, everyone has heard about the unprecedented move the Bankers have taken in the EU: they are going into the bank accounts of ordinary people and grabbing money. This actually has been going on over here but under a different name: it was first done by George W. Bush, because what else is a bailout? It’s stealing money from the taxpayers and giving money to the bankers and the rich who are “too big to fail.”
The very fact that the Bankers and the EU do not consider it “stealing” from private property, but just “taxing’ —goes beyond belief. It’s sets a precedent for future leaders all over the world to go into everyone’s bank accounts and take whatever they like.
Nobody Thinks, that a “cashless’ economy…..(debit cards, online banking) ..while seemingly a step forward in not having to lug around dollar bills…is quite a double edge sword. When banks hand over money that is not theirs to give, in order to keep themselves and the rich propped up…then the convenience of having a bank account, goes out the door.
I tell young kids that I talk to, that paying all their bills online to me is very scary. They look at me like I’m nuts. Who doesn’t get those bank statements trying to urge everyone to put EVERYTHING on their credit cards?—Groceries, gas, all your daily needs. They WANT a cashless society.
The people in Cyprus, the ones who can’t even get at their money, are right now in disbelieve: They are wishing they had that hard cash in their own hands, and not in the bank. It’s cold hard theft what the bankers are doing, and even though they admit it, no man or woman in any bank or government will go to jail for it.
And that’s how powerful the wealthy one percent have become. That’s why Joe Biden can run up half a million dollar hotel bill, and nothing is done to him for theft. Because that’s what it is: he is stealing our money.
Sooner or later the people will rebel. And that’s why…they want our guns…because they will be coming after more of our cash, you can bet your grandmother’s shiny penny on it.
If you are a poor British retired soldier, living out your life on the Island of Cyprus, you woke up and found out that the EU, decided it was running out of money, and so, they “taxed” your savings. They just reached inside your pocket like the good elite oligarchs they are, and grabbed what they felt they could.
If you are too late getting to the bank, the banks will be closed on Tuesday and Wednesday because, they have a lot of pillaging to do.
Russian citizens account for the majority of the billions of Euros held in Cypriot banks by foreign depositors, and Russian banks are heavily exposed to the island as a favored offshore centre for big business. tired-looking Christine Lagarde, head of the International Monetary Fund, appeared to have lost track of the calendar and wished weary reporters a “happy St Patrick’s Day” a full day early. She made no reference to a deposit levy, talking only of “burden sharing.” Several EU officials blamed Anastasiades for insisting on low contributions from uninsured deposits, hurting his country’s small savers to protect wealthy depositors, many foreigners. Under the new proposal, smaller depositors with up to €100,000 would be taxed at 3%; savers with €100,000 to €500,000 would be taxed at 10%; and those with more than €500,000 at 15%. despite all the promises, your savings are vulnerable to arbitrary confiscation.
But have heart! Those deposits could have been rendered even more worthless when the ECB cuts off its funding to Cypriot banks, a decision which would — through devaluation and insolvency — lead to depositors losing as much as 60% of their money.
Well, it’s the same old song isn’t it? “We must all share the burden.” and “It could have been so much worse.” The elites of the world, who continue to tax and steal money from the rest of us, are basically saying: Hey…we only took off your legs..it could have been worse..we could have KILLED you!
In the meantime, Japan will begin pumping huge amounts of yen into the economy, and our own Federal Reserve is pumping money too.
There seems to be more to it than simply wanting money. It’s the Russians that are going to be hurt the most…because they are sending Naval ships to the region.
Russia is helping Syria, and are sending Navel ships into the area. Simply put… they can’t get into Syria as long as this money stream is flowing through Cyprus. And the reason Cyprus is suffering…is also due to a very expensive explosion in 2011 which cost them billions:
Ruskies have at least 50 billion euros stalled in Cyprus. They have open storage on the base were 98 containers of explosives that had been seized by the United States Navy in 2009 after it intercepted a Cypriot-flagged, Russian owned vessel, the MV Monchegorsk travelling from Iran to Syria in the Red Sea. According to leaked US cables through Wiki Leaks, released in 2011, the US through Hillary Clinton exerted pressure on Cyprus to confiscate the shipment. The ship was escorted to a Cypriot port and the Cyprus Navy was given responsibility for the explosives, which it moved to the Evangelos Florakis a month later. At the time of the incident in 2011, the explosives had apparently been left in the open for over two years. The Cypriot government had declined offers from Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States to remove or dispose of the material, having feared an adverse reaction from Syria. The government had instead requested that the UN effect the removal, but claimed that its request had been rejected.
While the average American doesn’t get much news about the EU…we can only imagine how we would feel if we woke up one day…went online, and found out our “savings” had been taxed.
Obama has been looking at a way to “borrow” from our 401K’sand Pensions plans. Could our government be thinking about doing the same thing?
After Obamacare, we’d be foolish not to think so.
We truly do have the rich VS the poor in this story: Let’s start with Daniel.
Daniel Hegwood, 33, entered a downtown Wells Fargo over the weekend, told a teller he had a dangerous bomb inside the fast food bag and demanded money. He then fled on foot with a “substantial” amount of cash, leaving the bag behind, police said.
Yep…he figured he’s just take a McDonalds bag, fill it with an apple pie, and point it at the teller. It worked, but they did catch him, so he will be spending some days if not spending his loot, getting apple pies in jail. By the looks of him, it could be a godsend he was caught.
And then we have HSBC…or should I say, half the HSBC bank’s officials who have been laundering money for Mexican Drug Cartels. Their apple pie is , American Express, and thousands of stolen identities to set up fake accounts.
This report from the most impeccable Jerome Corsi of WND:
A former employee of HSBC in New York has 1,000 pages of customer account records he claims are evidence of an international money-laundering scheme involving hundreds of billions of dollars by the global banking giant, which reportedly is under investigation by a U.S. Senate committee. John Cruz has delivered to WND customer account records he says he pulled from the HSBC computer system before he was fired.
Cruz was terminated Feb. 17, 2010, after two years at HSBC for “poor performance,” but he contends he was let go because senior management didn’t want to him to pursue his personal investigation.
One of the largest banks in the world, London-based HSBC has about 7,500 offices in more than 80 countries and territories in Europe, North and South America, the Asia-Pacific region, the Middle East and Africa.
Cruz told WND he has “firsthand knowledge and proof of how HSBC transferred billions of dollars through accounts linked to companies that did not exist.” Cruz said that in the two years he worked for HSBC, he eventually discovered that money laundering was being carried out not only by branch managers but also by senior officers of the bank, both within the U.S. and internationally.
Well, there you go.
Who gets the award for the Nobody’s Perfect, biggest bank robbing scumbag of the week?
And to think, I have taken out many a loan from HSBC. Not only did the London Banks get trillions of our stimulus dollars, it seems they are getting a fair amount of stimulus from our drug addicts.
By the way, the people whose identities were stolen had no clue they had billion dollars in accounts.
