Tyler Durden's picture

Presented without commentary (well, we'll say one thing: for QE3 to work, it would have to be a surprise... so much for that).

Can Bernanke be impeached?

swissaustrian's picture

He would be replaced by Paul Krugman...

Temporalist's picture

He could be replaced by any 4 year old that only knows how to say "MORE!"

tickhound's picture

Why pay a 4 year old?  Just Hewlett Packard the position with a first class printer... doesn't even need a briefcase.

NewThor's picture

He could be replaced by scotch tape over the 

'PRINT' button on the presses.

Somebody tell Ben the markets - 5% from the highs and the XLF is near 52 week lows....wake up Ben....

The banks are off a lot more than that.  BofA seems to be getting taken to the woodsheds today.   Maybe people are wising up to the effect of principal reductions on the second lien book...

Bernanke can only be impeached if his Wife gets him to shave his beard.

TapperIsTicked's picture

That would take too much time. There has to be more expedient, head tossing alternative to make the point.

NewThor's picture

Could Hitler be impeached?

According to Nostradamus, either Bernank or Obama

is going to bite the dust right before Elenin is visable

in the skies.

After he gets a Nobel.

If we had justice for all. He would go to jail first and then hell.

I think this is a better representation on Gtrends...dated only last 12 months:

The really funny part:

1. Regions - Keynesian basket cases

2. Cities - NYC (no comment...)


It has to be said, though, that few would search for QE3 while QE2 was far from over.

QE III will work, ahh.. good 'ol recovery in sight.


Dr. Richard Head's picture

Funnier thing is that QE3 has been part of the ZH vernacular since early 2009.

Mais non!  Zerohedge:  Ahead of the curve so you can be!

Chinese retail spooked into selling dollars?

Flatchestynerdette's picture

they sold 97% of their short term us treasuries since the beginning of the year. seems they're going cold turkey yet, where did they put that money? Gold? Silver? Buy a few small African countries? Maybe Pakistan? Is that possible - to buy a country - take it over without spilling blood and using military assets? Just buy it like going to Tiffany's.

ncdirtdigger's picture

So what? China's short term US debt holdings make up less than one half of one percent of the US debt holdings.  

qussl3's picture

Considering we are talking about google trends here, i dont think retail holds much in the way of USTs.


What_Me_Worry's picture

Next up, "why is milk 100 dollars a gallon now" to start trending.

Will QE work?  Watch and see:


Disclosure statement:  Long "QE" + "home mortgage" Google Trends synthetic divergence trade.

Flatchestynerdette's picture

i know everyone thinks its going to happen but with so many eyes on the US Treasury/Fed, I don't think they can get away with doing QE3 in the light of the sun. Its only in the dark that roaches proliferate.

>> I don't think they can get away with doing QE3 in the light of the sun.

Want to bet on that?   Christ, Obama has fought an imperial police action for the last 70+ days without even consulting Congress.   The days of the US federal government (and it's private bank owners) answering to citizens is OVER.  

TPTB will do WHAT they want, WHEN they want to WHOM they want and will answer to no one.

ROFL!  Obama re-election ads on this page!  Thats even funnier than the Cramer ads from a few months back.

Gotta love ad networks

The trick to a lower unemployment rate is to volunteer for Obama's campaign:

Then buy some Made in China shit at the store:

Including the birth certificate mug! oh cool

rocker's picture

I have not seen one yet. What did google ad tracer catch you reading? CNBC and Fox.?.    This laugh is on you.

Hong Kong and Taiwan.  No surprise there.  Just log into a Yahoo MB on any given day to take the temp on Chinese misguidance.

There, every momo stock is headed "to the moon", and the most common phrase is, "fundamentals don't matter."  Uh huh.

It is the EKG print out for the impending acute myocardial infarction this market is about to suffer.  There will be no 9-1-1, no help, nothing but weeping and nashing of teeth.

I am sure that Ben will light a fire under gold/silver when he starts delivering his 3.45pm speech

Temporalist's picture

Oooo...when Ben speaks, PMs listen.

Cdad's picture

I would suggest that PMs have a fight with a bouncing US dollar directly ahead.

Is it a stretech to think this could be a sign that the peasantry is waking up to the slave system?

Franken_Stein's picture

This is the list of cities who make most use of the term "assclown":


1. Boston, MA, USA 2. Chicago, IL, USA 3. Atlanta, GA, USA 4. New York, NY, USA 5. Toronto, Canada
Franken_Stein's picture


The use of "assclown" peaked in the 2nd half of 2007 by the way.


And yes, Boston is leading by a wide margin.


augie's picture

Boston is the king of assclown.



mayhem_korner's picture

hey....some of us call Boston home, y'know.

augie's picture

As a native NY'er, let me be the first to apologize for all the hatred and vitriol that has passed between our states for generations. I hope the people of boston will accept this offering of peace and grant us their forgiveness for all of our passed transgr.....

I almost pulled it off... FUCK BOSTON! GO YANKEES!

Life-sized poster of Dave Roberts on its way to ya, Augie!

lol mayhem you are a good sport. I needed that laugh. Thank you.

"US Bank" is #1 right now...

Cdad's picture

Low and behold, after weeks of the market falling apart, the VIX finally woke up from its Rip Vanwinkle slumber and SUDDENLY [ie no one could have seen it coming] remembered what its market purpose is.

Maybe the VIX will stop today at 19.14?  I'm sure Brian the Sack has it all well in hand.

A father's wish to his boy Bennie: Google Correlate picks out "father's day 2011" as the search term most strongly correlated with QE3.

misnomer's picture

Can Bernanke be sent to Debtors Prison???

Esso's picture

No, that's for the peons, not the gods that walk amongst us mere cattle.
