Barney Frank Goes Apeshit Over S&P Insinuation The Dodd-Frank Is A Miserable Failure, Hypocritical Hilarity Ensues

Tyler Durden's picture


There is something oddly pot-meet-kettle-esque when Barney Frank, one of the men most responsible for the nationalization of the GSEs, sends out a letter bashing S&P head David Sharma, one of the men responsible for the credit crisis. Especially when the bashing is over something that is actually 100% true: that Dodd-Frank is the most pathetic and corrupt piece of legislation to come out of Washington since Gramm-Leach-Bliley.


And here is the report that prompted Frank's paroxysm of rage:

Barney Frank Goes Apeshit Over S&P...


Typo.  Should read, "Barney Frank Goes Apeshit Over S&M"

The first time Barney Frank's mom and dad saw him lying in the hospital nursery they were so proud of their little baby boy.  All of the other babies had pacifiers in their mouth to keep them from screaming and crying.  And their lie little Barney so calm and happy with no pacifier. 

His mother turned to his father and said, "look at how sweet our boy is.  He lies there so nicely and he doesn't even need a pacifier." 

Just then the nurse was walking by and said to Mrs. Frank, "actually we had to put his pacifier in his rectum to keep him quiet".

Barney Fwank is concerned that his acting role in such movies as "Inside Job" may be in jeopardy. Don't forget he is a Hollywood star now and needs to defend his "for the people" role he played in that film.

Its Fwankish ;-)

This twit has been sitting in a position of power and influence and at the epicenter of every financial crisis for my entire life.

His staff (pun?) of the past can be found sitting in places like GS, the Morgue et al.  And his present staff can be found fully erect to the possibility of joining them there.

He is one of the most despicable creatures on the face of the planet. Wholly devoid of any sense of ethics, he has used his position to dispense favor as if it were his money being used to give away.

His boyfriend for a "Fwannie job" (another pun?) and then interceding in the United One affair with the bank bailouts.

He is a drooling, split tongue, snake in the grass placed among us by other snakes.

Just like down South in Argentina.

BUENOS AIRES, July 13 (UPI) -- Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner is facing accusations her administration is seeking to muzzle independent economists for publishing data that runs counter to the government's version of key statistics on economic performance.

Making fun of Barney's sexuality distracts from his financial thievery off the American taxpayer.  Ergo, junked. 


To all you a-holes who also latch onto a person's gender or religion ("da Jews did it all"), please cut it out.  Focus on the thievery of the political and bankster classes.

Geoff, come on.
He's been in the press caught in a drug raid (cocaine party) where everybody else was arrested and he's let loose.  Pictures in the news of him rubbing the ass of young male interns in DC.  Even then, most folks couldn't give a rat's ass about his sexuality.  Barney's just loved and talked about, by just being Barney.  People love him.

And keep in mind, in the most civil ZH tradition, people are laughing with him, not at him. 

Just like we recognize that only a small minority of Muslims are terrorists, but in the quest for equality, we treat them all the same.

Barney's just loved and talked about, by just being Barney.  People love him.

Yes.  That was also the argument for why Michael Jackson was not a ticking time bomb.  I heard for years that "Michael is Special" by appoligists with their heads in the sand.  They were convinced he wasn't a deeply troubled and deviant person who, in reality, couldn't be trusted babysitting your child, let along released into Senate to do as he wished with your money. 

I know you were being sarcastic, but some people acutally believe some deviants are "special."  We are apes, nobody is special.  Pigs are not born as opera stars and horses don't talk.  Everything you see has been seen before in the human condition.  The real bad ones, they want to be seen as "special" so they can do what they want and not be labeled for what they are.  They are not "special" other than we need to take special precautions against personality types that are predictably destructive.

If you choose the right people, you could populate the Senate and House with drag queens and "perverts" who could function perfectly well and not steal you blind or strut around and make an ass of themselves.  There no connection between sexuality and being a crook.  There's no connection between deviance and evil.  Barney can't hide behind his messed up personal life, or his miserable record.  The man is an absolute abomination.  A Judas Iscariot in the persona of Elmer Fudd.

Sigh, oh to be young.

Literally MILLIONS of gay people don't speak like Elmer Fudd. 

They also don't conduct their private lives like Bangkok whores,

Or have the emotional maturity of a 14 year old girl, flying off the handle in emotional hissy fits whenever their pathetic record is even remotely challenged,

This disgusting excuse for a human being has done more damage to you and me than he could ever attone for,

But he has no intention of atoning, or even admitting partial responsibility for his misdeeds.

In fact, he turns my stomach with his posturing and bristling at even the remotest challenge to his record.

Barney Frank is the poster child for hubris, ego, and complete corruption and incompetence.

And you have the collosal gaul to hector us about laughing at his antics?

You sir, are either an idiot, or just a posturing youngling hoping to appear heroic by standing up for what is right by parroting back what has been drummed into your innocent brain by those who use you, drain your father of his youth, his energy, and his dreams, and abuse your mother.

It's OK, I've been there.

I agree with your sentiment about the bashing, but geez your approach is a junk magnet.

Yeah, there's a lot of gay bashing and Jew bashing and what-ever bashing in ZH posts. Some in jest. Some quite disturbing. ZH monitors are pretty good about just letting it rip---allowing freedom of speech. Part of the attraction here I think.

As for me, I have to be careful. I have to be careful I am not secretly enjoying reading a bigoted post all the while enjoying a self-righteous sense of superiority for not having written it. 

Where'd all your junks come from? Probably right around "Please cut it out" and "Focus on the...." Independent folks do NOT like to be told what to do.

I agree with you there are many Jew haters and blamers here at ZH. Not a majority though. The Jew bankers this, the Jew bankers that. Sad really. The stench of bigotry and ignorance gets so bad sometimes I just have to log-off and get a breath of fresh air. Free speech includes a lot of noise.

Here. Let's go Jew-Hater fishing: I am Founders Keeper, and I stand with the Jews. The heritage of our nation's founding has many roots found in the Jewish story and tradition. (That's a fact.)

We owe a lot to Jewish culture and ethics.

If one wants to look at the influence and wealth of religious groups on Wall Street, they cant rationally talk about the Jews without also discussing the Hindus, Episcopalians and Presbyterians also.

I think most of this country is still owned by the top crust Episcopalians, Methodists and Presbyterians, not the folks who got here post-1900.

You are too generous, JLee.

BF has no empathy for you. He's a miserable, self serving, egotistical slob who is outraged at the hint that anyone could find fault with him or his actions. Had he the slightest bit of integrity he would have resigned 10 years ago. Instead, he is drunk on power and is oh so dangerous to you and everything you value. Remember, it was he who led the "Committee to Abandon Responsibility" when they "investigated" the financial crises and concluded that it wasn't anybody's fault. Thereby, through government sanction, released the Congress from any and all liability for its actions and failure to protect the American people.

For some reason the term "dog shit" now comes to mind.

I believe we have solved the "wish to be a rep issue" and the debt issue in one go.  Each elected membwa (lol) gets kicked in the crotch until death for $10 a kick.

Problems solved.

No one wants to be in that government, do they?  No nation under God.

No debt.  No nation. No army. No Bwarneys.  /hahahahaha!/

I live in the next district over (for now, MA-9, we're losing a critter this term so who knows next year). Spend 10-nanoseconds with the average voter in that district (or virtually any other in MA, especially MA-1, 3, 6, 7 and 8) and it becomes painfully obvious why a sac like this gets returned to CONgress every 2-years.

Trust me - Bwawney Mumbles perfectly fits this district and they deserve him.

i found this abt ur 4th of july:::


The Mason who first signed the Declaration of Independence would have been aware of the

particular significance of July 4 as a cosmic event. The day was the second in the so-called

dog days…which begin on July 3. The dog days are so-called because they refer to the rising

of the star Sirius.

I know that astrological traders make money, but I think it's more from doing things differently than from you explanations of why.   You are subjected to all sorts of gravitational forces and electro magnetic forces, all day long.  Your cell phone and watch have a lot more influence on you than the Dog Star Sirrus.  I just don't buy it.  I continue to study your methods, but I just don't buy it.

Now, if you want to talk about the influence of the sun on our planet, and perhaps, the animals on its surface (including us) I'm all ears, but the stars?  Too far away.

The confusion comes from mistaking corelation with causation.

The biosphere goes through various cycles that the regular cycles of the heavens corespond with. Thus when certain stars dominate the night sky, it is better to plant crops, harvest, fish, etc.

That does not mean that the stars *caused* these things to be optimal, and astrology grew from that kind of projection.

Dont underestimate the predictive ability of a good astrologer, however. The accumulated knowledge those guys have of various natural cycles can be uncanny, for example the success some have in predicting weather is more accurate than the British MET or the National Weather Service.

But the stars cause nothing; they just hapen to be in the same place each year the cycles repeat themselves. (of course, not all these cycles are anual or related to just stars and planets).

This is a sneak preview, a mini-rehersal for what's coming: the beast begins to eat it's own children and finally itself. 

Today the different parts of the Ponzi are blaming each other for "what's wrong with the system", pointing fingers and calling spenders of the national treasure black like a pot. 

And sadly the truth is none of them really care because they ahve the full intention of continuing and extending their reckless ways. Dodd-Frank was an exercise in cover up for the financial criminals

+1.  The grand irony.  When all the lies and scams come back and become WMD's for the political stooges to use against each other.  The melt down is starting to get interesting now.  I suspect we haven't anything yet.

Of course, this is exactly as scripted.  Financial crisis = sovereign crisis = political crisis = currency crisis.  We are just now moving into stage 3.
