The finances of the world’s mightiest empire continues on the road to ruin thanks to embracing red ink as ‘wealth’ and of course, a very dangerous attitude about ‘trade’ whereby much of it is one way so far as profits are concerned. One way out. Obama has to listen to his ‘fund raisers’ who are all uniformly rich lobbyists when it comes to picking people to run the system which is run entirely for the benefit of these same lobbyists and rich people. The game is, when Obama who isn’t rich, retires like Clinton who was nearly bankrupt when he left the WH, he will be richly rewarded like Clinton.
So he obeys these rich guys who order him around. So what, if this destroys the Democratic Party or the middle class or industrial workers or whoever? They don’t have the loot! And the loot rules the roost. The WP and NYT love to talk about all this without mentioning AIPAC. I do hope Bezos doesn’t continue this deception.
For Freshmen in the House, Finance Panel Is a Money Seat:…The House Financial Services Committee, critics say, is a place with big incentives for freshman members of Congress to do special favors for the finance industry, says the NYT who ought to know very well how the Tribe thrives doing this. They also had a story, without mentioning Summers is a Jewish guy, talking about how wonderful he is: The Fed, Lawrence Summers, and Money
Among the top contenders to lead the Fed, Lawrence H. Summers has by far the most Wall Street experience and the most personal wealth…
“With Larry, my wife always says that it’s hard to be happy if you want to have the most money because you’ll never have the most money,” said Jeremy I. Bulow, an economics professor at Stanford University who is a friend and co-author of academic papers with Mr. Summers. “He’s kind of been going about his life just on the basis of ‘who knows what’s going to come next?’ and just sort of maximizing his experiences, given the opportunities in front of him.”
My comment to the Times story:
The tiny group who run our banking system, writes the Wall Street ‘laws’ and who own our government via lobbying groups such as AIPAC, are all very rich.
And they got this way dishonestly. By dumping all the banking regulations set up by FDR’s advisors and the Congress back then, we now have the hideous sight of endless bubbles and busts, wild speculation and depressions as in the past before FDR.
Summers is part of this elite rich group that is fleecing the nation, destroying the middle class, driving our young deep into debt to go to college and the open door trade policies that destroyed unions, eliminated much of our industrial base and turned major cities like Detroit into bankrupt disaster areas.
Time for an outsider to run the Fed. Someone who is not part of this crew who destroyed everything in their path while getting very, very rich.
I don’t know if they will publish this because I mentioned AIPAC, that Verboten Group. On to another thing our ‘government’ seems unable to do, supervise the Assassination Nation and its KGB clones: Lawmakers say obstacles limited oversight of NSA
Yet some other members of the intelligence and judiciary committees paint a different picture.
They describe regular classified briefings in which intelligence officials would not volunteer details if questions were not asked with absolute precision.
House members must rely on the existing committee staff, many of whom used to work for the spy agencies they are tasked with overseeing.
Agency officials, meantime, aggressively court the committee, giving lawmakers a sense of being insiders in a clandestine world and at times treating them to a real-life version of the Spy Museum, former members said.
This is further proof, Snowden is a whistle blower and not a ‘traitor’. Congress itself admits they were clueless and unable to do their jobs due to excess secrecy inside the spy realm. Duh! So when will they all apologize and give him an award for being so daring as to defy this gang of lying bastards who should all be in jail?
No, we have to see endless media and Presidential attacks on Snowden and Putin. Putin is evil! A KGB agent unlike…wait! We have reversed our positions! Ouch. This degrading situation should stop except Israel loves this status quo and the less our Congress who works for AIPAC knows, the better. Then there is the fake peace talks in Israel.
One slap in the face to the US envoy, Kerry and the Palestinians after another. No stopping. Done with pure malice and glee. NO ONE could pay me enough to be insulted and abused over and over again like this! Don’t our ‘leaders’ have any shame left? I hear nothing but the croaks of toadies.
