America Laughs As Jon Stewart Explains How Ben Bernanke Is Robbing It Blind

Tyler Durden's picture

Sick of bears explaining QE2? Prefer to watch Jon Stewart roasting the monetary Hewlett Retard instead? Here is your chance. Somehow catching Ben Bernanke lying on national TV has become not only a national sport, but one that provokes uncontrollable laughter... Ironically that is the laughter of all those whose money on a daily basis is worth less and less, courtesy of the Chancellor (Chairman is so QE1) buying back $50 billion in debt every week. Presumably laughing as one's net worth is getting destroyed makes it more palatable. Just wait as the country collapses into uncontrollable hysteric guffaws as the 30 Year mortgage passes 5%, then 6%, then 7%, etc. destroying up to 25% of household net worth.

Sadly for America, I find it hard to laugh.

A comedian is the bell-weather for honest journalism in America. His rally, along with his other funny-monkey drew thousands to the Capitola!

Also, how many here know that his brother is a top dog at the NYSE?

John Stewart, funny though he is, is a Psy-op!

Laugh at your own peril, even if he seems to speak some truth.

Stewart's older brother is Larry Leibowitz who just so happens to be the CEO at the New York Stock Exchange.

He's also a whore for Obama. Anyone who watched him during the last election would know.

Which daily show xmas special made fun of people that buy gold?

Stewart and Johhny Bravo have a lot in common.

Bruce K. (I think) a while ago had posted something about the US not wanting the new 100 dollar bills in circulation - to not reduce old (and fake) dollar supply in circulation. Thats exactly whats happening here ?

That is interesting.  So how does the cabal actually work?  (sounds sarcastic, not meant to be, really).  So I have 2 sisters and a brother.  One I never speak with, one I speak with a few times a year, one I speak with somewhat regularly. 

If John Stewart is "one of them"... are his writers also "one of them".  Was John Stewart enlisted from the "get-go", or did he work his way up in a legit way, but now that he has a platform, he presents what they want him to present when they want him to present it.

C'mon, get with the program.  He's a product of a CIA breeding program.  Have you ever seen his birth certificate--long form or otherwise?

kridkrid's picture

In a nutshell... I think there is WAY more real "conspiracy" going on than what people want to admit.  I simply believe things are a bit more chaotic than hard core conspiracy theorists want to present.

This thread... and the thread about Wikileaks... Does everyone who shines a light on BullSh-t have to be doing so by design?

Bob's picture

As you can see, I'm pretty fed up with that notion!  GRRRRRRRRR.  It diverts the debate into pure insanity. 

Yes, I think you're right in your assessment.  

cosmictrainwreck's picture

concur. even if "they" have a master scheme, i just think they're too stoopid to pull it off (or at least the weakest link is). yeah, chaos, you bet - not to mention complexity. don't have scientific data yet, but my gut is the more complex, the easier to fuck up; hyperbolic analogy is downing a $200 million aircraft when a $10 widget goes out (used to be $1.95, know)

The level of effort required to maintain a lie is infinitely greater than the level of effort required for truth to bubble up to the surface.

Love this quote, is it yours?

Rhodin's picture

A famous pirate once said,  "three can keep a secret if two are dead" !

Later they called it "mission closure".  Probably why we still don't know for sure who hit JFK, for which of the 20+ reasons.

Nowadays they do stuff in the open, and say their shit is ice cream.  Some really believe it's ice cream.  Most people play along, cause they wouldn't want to be "crazy" ,  "on that list", or "lose my clearance" etc.

Looks relatively effortless to me, as long as the matrix holds up.

Batty Koda's picture

Yes sure, secrets don't exist, everyone always tells the truth. I doubt you really believe that, it's just a lazy way of dismissing conspiracies.

Harbourcity's picture

Thank you for saying this.

It seems very telling to me that the conspiracy's rely on a huge complicated structure and design (Julian Assange, Jon Stewart etc are Psyops) and yet... YET, the core conspiracy theorists see through them...


downrodeo's picture

This is a good point and something to keep in mind when a person comes to you and tells you that they have it all figured out; that they see the conspiracy that almost nobody else understands. On the other hand, it is equally naive to assume that 'conspiracies' don't exist, as Cass Sunstein would have you believe. I'm not trying to imply that you said anything to that effect, but I want to point out that the slope is slippery on both sides. 


I mean, by the dictionary definition [], almost no significant action is taken without a 'conspiracy' between a few important actors. For instance, would you say that it is true that the Fed is conspiring against the holders of dollars right now? In my view, they most certainly are. The cloak and dagger business comes in when they do things like call monetary debasement quantitative easing, and then straight up lie about it on national television.

Very well said. It's interesting to note that Susstein singled out 9/11 conspiracy theories (other than the government approved ones of course) in particular to discredit and attack.

Your post is excellent in pointing out the dangers of going full blown psychotic with paranoia and the head in the sand approach being roughly equal. Both are damaging to say the least. I believe a lot of the craziest CT's out there (alien extra-dimensional beings etc) are psy-ops to induce paranoia and blunt critical thinking. Great post. Don't be naive but also don't be ludicrously paranoid. Discernment is the marquee skill of the (dis)information age.

Lord Koos's picture

Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean no one is after you.

C'mon, get with the program.  He's a product of a CIA breeding program.  Have you ever seen his birth certificate--long form or otherwise?


His birth certificate is filed right next to those of Assange and POTUS.

Bob's picture

Now that's a good way to discredit yourself around here these days.  Correct me if I'm wrong, but I sense that you may not be on the right side of the 9-11 issue.  I cannot have any faith whatsoever in anyone who does not know for a fact that 9-11 was an inside job. 

But Stewart?  The reason nobody's seen his birth certificate is that none exists.  He was cloned in a Mossad lab. 

Don't you find it strange that the photos of the planes hitting the World Trade Center don't show Stewart in the pilot seat??  The CIA obviously photoshopped the truth away--one of Stewart's clones was piloting that plane.

How naive you sheeple are.

Yes the media is completely honest and legitimate.  Believe... Believe.. Believe.. my little sheeple.

kridkrid's picture

Your straw man has nothing to do with my post.  Do people realize how cartoon-like they appear when they post things like this?  I'm somewhere near Noam Chomsky in my belief in our media.  That wasn't my point.

Teddy Turner's picture

It's a joke fuckhead.  Get over yourself.

kridkrid's picture

Sorry... I didn't get it (still don't) but OK.  I'm "over myself"... are you?

Teddy Turner's picture

There you go being an asshole again

kridkrid's picture

You have now called me a fuckhead and an asshole.  Everything ok?  Do we know each other from somewhere?  I'm moving on.  Cheers.

Teddy Turner's picture

I just call'em like I see'em buddy.  How about a buffalo burger as a peace offering?

Ripped Chunk's picture

Calling them like you see them when you are in reality delusional just adds to the useless static.

TheProphet's picture

That's funny. A total stranger curses you, and you know yourself well enough to conclude that he must know you somehow.

How so?  A couple of examples would be useful.  Or is he just a fool "in general".  For what it is worth... I'm a huge fan of his critique or American foreign policy... I believe he speaks the truth.  I believe his economics are a bit misguided.  But to call him a fool seems a bit, foolish.

Teddy Turner's picture

Have you seen his comments on 9/11.  Merely assumptions without looking at any hard evidence. 

Teddy Turner's picture

Interviewing with this guy doesn't help much either.


alpds's picture

What does the Ali G interview prove? you seem to be foxynews-like high on name calling and low on evidence...

ps: NC forgets in a minute more than you have ever comprehended and learned. 

Teddy Turner's picture

Now I've got to deal with another one of you clowns.  this "Ali G" guy is a total goof.  Anyone who would be interviewed by this guy has questionable decision making skills.

FEDbuster's picture

I would love to see an "Ali G" half hour interview with the Ben Bernak. "So let me get this straight, you print the monies outta thin air?"

Maybe when Sasha gets done with the new Queen movie?

alpds's picture

Noam Chomsky conducted a very thorough and deeply researched analysis of the media. His thesis in Manufacturing Consent (MC) provides ample evidence to support his position and conclusion (think Einhorn analyzing Allied Capital or LH with their internal documents). It is not a believe, it's a fact that the corporate media misinforms and indoctrinates the public. Read the bibliography sources provided in MC: hard, cold, naked facts.

"During the Cold War, a group of Russian journalists toured the United States. On the final day of their visit, they were asked by their hosts for their impressions. 'I have to tell you,' said their spokesman, 'that we were astonished to find after reading all the newspapers and watching TV, that all the opinions on all the vital issues were by and large, the same. To get that result in our country, we imprison people, we tear out their fingernails. Here, you don't have that. What's the secret? How do you do it?" ~ John Pilger


Teddy Turner's picture

Totally agree.  But like I said the man just made up assumptions when it came to 9/11 and that in my book makes him a fool.

alpds's picture

what comments? are you saying 9/11 is inside job? and b/c he doesn't think so he is a fool?

pls clarify. I have seen his comments but have no clue what you are alluding to.

Teddy Turner's picture

Within this video he says anyone who knows anything about science would discredit the conspiracy theories.  This many clearly has not done the research.  If he had he could have the found the answers.  Oh and he says it's not worth finding out the true reasons for the JFK assassination.  These are major flags.
