Greetings America, meet your new Overseers!
That knocking you hear IS the wolf at your door: it is Rahm Emanuel & Lloyd Blankfein's army of eviction, foreclosure, and cancelled health-insurance agents -Like a horde of army ants tossing your family's life possessions out on the curb; raiding your pension with coordinated hedge-fund "pump & dump" attacks; cancelling your health insurance because you are now old enough to actually need medical care; outsourcing your job (with fun & gusto) to Communist China (and telling you that "Of COURSE you shouldn't expect to make A DIME more than those in a Communist Gulag slave-labor work camp make" - the NY Times' Tom Friedman makes a mint selling that junk), and, when all their other quasi- "free market" Loot & Plunder schemes have, indeed, driven most of America back onto the planatation, back into Hooverville, THEN the "financial wizzards" of Wall Street GO DIRECTLY to their BRIBED & OWNED CONGRESS,
and just BLATANTLY EXTORT ___trillions $$___ of American household dollars, FROM taxpayer wallets & savings accounts, TO their Wall St. (and offshore) executive accounts, in the form of $20 trillion TWENTY+ TRILLION DOLLARS of taxpyayer EXTORTED "Bailouts so Blankfein & Emanuel's loan-shark enforcers can CORNER and swindle YOUR life's savings!
Just like those despised "untermensch" terrarist Palestinians in Gaza, the West Bank, and East Jerusalem getting EVICTED by "settlers" - with the machine-gun and bulldozer backing of the US taxpayer funded Israel Army and US war machine, Praise Jesus!
With today's scathing release of the TARP Inspector General's oversight report -
(good brief review at ZeroHedge)
Those not closely connected to Goddamn-Sachs, JP Morgan-Chase, Citi-bank, Wells-Fargo, BoA, (and a few other mega-large, connected financial instutions) have all wailed a plaintive scream -
"For how much longer will President Obama persist in listening to the disastrous 'advice' of his promoted way-beyond-incompetence Treasury Secretary, Timmy Geithner, and President Obama's even more treacherously destructive Rasputin, White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel?Even uber- Clintonista/Obamabot/AIPAC/NY/DC big donors & Manhatten & inside-beltway neo-con-lite establishment Dem liberals are wearing sack-cloth & ashes and wailing plaintively about the RISING HORRORS of this economy.
So it is time to step back and ask: "Was RAHM EMANUEL's pointing of President Obama to the infamously incompetent (then NY Fed Bank President) Tim Geithner to be Treasury Secretary in January 2009 _merely_ a case of over-the-top INSIDER CORRUPTION.... or does Rahm Emanuel really see himself as a DICTATORIAL OVERLORD, AN AGENT of a FOREIGN GOVERNMENT AND FOREIGN BANKING INTEREST's occupation, whose MISSION is to complete the Goddamn-Sachs, JP Morgan/Chase, Citi, Wells Fargo, BoA (et al) steamroller CRUSHING of America's high-wage, upward mobility society, in to a wage-slavery and abject poverty society such as that enjoyed by Palestinians in the West Bank & Gaza?"
(Because, well, that IS what mega-financial, bribe the kings & govenments, booms-&-busts, pump-&-dump, inflate-&-deflate-entire-economies financial titans do.)
Because IF Emanuel's INTENTIONS are to DEFRAUD, CHEAT, and IMPOVERISH American citizens - HE IS SUCCEEDING MARVELOUSLY.
We ___exaggerate__, you say ??
Try THESE MSNBC and NY Times headlines -
"Hunger in U.S. at a 14-year high"
"NYT: 1 in 7 households struggles to put enough food on table"
Got that? RAHM EMANUEL, Timmy Geithner, Lawrence Summers, and President Obama's Goddamn-Sachs "economics team" have just overseen the TRANSFER of some TWENTY TRILLION DOLLARS (of "real" obligated debt, taxes, and wealth taken OUT of American households) FROM American taxpayers, TO the Big Financials... and we have headlines about "HUNGER" stalking American homes ?!
After WWII, American taxpayers paid American farmers to feed & almost ALL of EUROPE!!!
But 60 years later, after President Obama's Emanuel cronies have dished out TRILLIONS upon TRILLIONS upon TRILLIONS of household taxpayer dollars to their partners, cronies, and (make no mistake) kickback, slush-fund,
Seriously, THIS is THE BEST, that the "best and the brightest" can do?!!!
This _IS_ THE RAHM EMANUEL, JOE LIEBERMAN.... & BILL KRISTOL agenda.
Bill Kristol is not only the uber- Right-Wing Republican who gave Wolfowitz and Cheney their "PNAC" Think Tank where they could publicly (and semi-legitimately) broadcast their "INVADE IRAQ NOW!" war-lust way back in 1997 and 1998, but of course Bill Kristol is also the super Neo-Con Likdunik who thought that SARAH PALIN would be the Republican Party & John McCain campaign's IDEAL VP CANDIDATE in 2008.
Sarah Palin - as in "Alaska Governor Sarah Palin" - whose husband Todd joined the ALASKA SECESSIONIST PARTY" !!!!!
The uber- Neo-Con Republican wet-dream candidate for the 2008 ticket, was an incompetent woman who supported the secessionist, "NEW CIVIL WAR in AMERICA" agenda!!
The RAHM EMANUEL so-called "Democrat" "treat 'em Americans like the DIRT PEONS they are" neo-con agenda, is IDENTICAL with the BILL KRISTOL, "let's CRIMINALIZE and destroy ANYONE WHO OPPOSES the US wars in mideast" radical-right Likud agenda.
(hello, Paul Wellstone and Prime Minister Rabin.)
(here's the video of Bill Kristol sneering, at 59 seconds into this video, "Whenever I hear of a HEARTLESS ASSAULT on American children, I TEND TO THINK IT IS A GOOD IDEA" - he is talking about then Pres. Bush VETOING the 'schp' health insurance program for America's low-income children - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GqObdWSv5lg )
In this galary of Blankfein, Lieberman, Emanuel, Kristol (et al) ROGUES - IF NOT ABJECT TRAITORS - Timmy Geithner is actually the honest fool, he is Bush to Emanuel's Cheney, a useful idiot who actually believes what his Goddamn-Sachs, JPMorgan-Chase, Citi & Wells Fargo handlers tell him.
IF the above sounds a tad con-spir-a-torial (and your humble editors here have been studying the psychology of 20th Century mass-murderous, mass-media propaganda, hyper-nationalistic, industrialized war dictators for the past 30+ years), below is an arbitrary but well stated comment from ZeroHedge (bottom this post) that is a slightly more rational cry for sanity for America's econmic leadership, which echoes (first), the comments at Max Keiser's widely watched around the world video blogs (MaxKeiser.com) over the past several weeks -
(our paraphrase):That is actually a TRANSFER of NEARLY THIRTY TRILLION DOLLARS from American households TO Wall Street: the original five- or more trillion dollars of overinflated, overpriced mortgage loans, inflated home values, and credit card debt LOOTED out of American households, MUCH OF WHICH WAS PREDATORY if not FRAUDULENT debt; and then the $20+ trillion that has been DIRECTLY TRANSFERRED, FROM TAXPAYER pockets, TO the Big Finance predators; that is, over & above Wall Street and ; Goddamn-Sachs, (et al's) original frauds DEFRAUDED millions of Americans out of their savings & paychecks... ALL the above with RAHM EMANUEL's blessing, all for some LOUSY $10- , $20-, or $30 million dollars in bribes, KICKBACK, SLUSH-FUND "campaign donations" to the Obama campaign warchest for 2010 and 2012 electioneering!
"In September 2008, Congress could have _forgiven_ EVERY HOME MORTGAGE, AND _every_ credit card outstanding balance, for $11 trillion dollars."
"Twelve months later, the Emanuel/Obama/geithner 'ECONOMICS' crew has GIVEN AWAY Twenty+ TRILLION DOLLARS, to mega-banksters only, with nothing to show for it but the entire American economy EVEN MORE in tatters than it was in late 2008" !!!!
(an open letter to President Obama, a comment from over at ZeroHedg.come) -
The time is now to remove Geithner. His actions in the matter described are deplorable. Virtually NOBODY IN THE WORLD gives [him any] credibility, particularly on the "strong dollar" mantra. He has jumped the shark and is a pathetic embarrassment to the USA, which is quickly becoming a banana republic.
The time is now to let the term of Bernanke expire; for the love of all that is sane, WHY ARE YOU EVEN LISTENING to this man WHO COULD NOT EVEN SEE THE SUBPRIME CRISIS?
[Note: Max Keiser and other broker/dealers saw the Fannie Mae/Freddia Mac debacle coming, and shouted at the top of their lungs about the looming disaster. Rahm Emanuel, by contrast, was paid over $300,000 for a 14 month stint as a Freddie Mac DIRECTOR - a stint not completely clear of the SCANDAL that Emanuel's own home-town paper wrote up as "Freddie Mac Scandals BEGAN DURING Emanuel's WATCH" =
Why are you allowing him to keep rates at zero, devalue the dollar, and trade off the future of the USA so that a small group can make a fortune running up risk assets?
Start listening to Volcker and like minded people Mr. President.
[note 2: Paul Volker helped inflict THE OPPOSITE CALAMITY on the Carter administration, SUPER-HIGH interest rates which killed the economy just as badly as the current transfer of wealth to Big Financials has done these past 2 years.]
If you do, we have a chance. If you don't you and your party will be thrown out during the next election because americans realize that they are being robbed of their future by a wall street/banking oligarchy.
