Mike Shedlock (Mish) has a great article this morning on opposing Bernanke.

What a disgusting creep you are.  Here is some advice.  Stop listening to Alex Jones and browsing StormFront for your information about the Fed and the international jewish banking conspiracy.  Pick up a history book before you spew your utter nonsense. 

Your pointless anti-semitism does not belong on this website and it is a tragedy that so many people like you exist. 

We can elegantly argue against the Federal Reserve and why a central bank wreaks havoc on an economy, but that requires intelligence and study.  Perhaps you should try it.

I didn't write the post you are replying to, but I found it compelling that you didn't try to dispute the numbers he proffered, granted they were not definite.  However, instead you played the 'anti-semite' card.  We can call each other names all we want. But that would be a direct contradiction of an 'elegant argument'. Do you or do you not agree that Israel has sweeping influence over American Policy?

What is the point of disputing them? Jews also happen to hold more Nobel peace prizes than any other ethnic group, what is the conclusion that we can make here? The OP will probably remark on some conspiracy within the Nobel community or maybe there is just something about that particular ethnic group that makes them more gifted? I have no idea, but it is what it is. Yes, Israel has influence and lots of it, but America's relationship with Israel goes back all the way to Israel's birth. America's enemy was Communism and it quickly became apparent that Israel was a proxy war, between the Soviet Communist bloc supporting the Arabs and Americans supporting the Jews. A relationship that goes back 60 years will have consequences.

By the way, another accusation of Jews running the world is hardly an elegant argument and is nothing more than thinly veiled anti-semitism. I have no skin in this game, but it's sad to see this kind of thought so pervasive. I see it among Ron Paul supporters all the time...really makes you wonder. Then again he called all Jews manipulative financial crooks, this should bother any thinking person.

I am sorry to say, but by your ironic argument of Nobel Prize 'race ratios' just shows your own racism.  I am not racist.  I cannot speak for the OP, but I did not interpret his post as racist.  I interpreted it as pointing out (and accurately) that Israel dictates United States policy. 

Secondly, do you have a link to what you quoted Ron Paul as saying? I'd like to read it.  Thanks.

keep in mind that morons, racists, and hypocrites, as a mental group in America, are only about 2-3% of the overall population, yet still they are over represented by a massively disproportionate margin in your comment.

Nice to know the party affiliations, but it's ultimately meaningless for this.  Aiding and abetting TheftByBank is the first truly bipartisan thing this Senate has done.

There is nothing that says "partisan" more than the Democratic party support for Bernanke.  If our president were Republican then the vote tally (in support of Bernanke) would be completely reversed.  It is completely obvious that the Republicans and Democrats will continue to refuse to listen to the American people.  God, I am sick of the threats.  I can't wait to vote them out of office...ALL OF THEM.

No single man should be so important to the economy that threats of market collapse could be taken more seriously than "change you can believe in."  Haven't we learned anything yet?

I'm confused by your post:  do you not see that support for Helicopter Ben is bipartisan in the tallies above?

Corruption is bipartisan.

I agree that "corruption is bipartisan."

The declared support for Bernanke is by a 5 to 1 margin from the Democrats.  The Republicans are divided 1 to 1.  In any event, I see Republicans in slight opposition and Democrats in overwhelming support.  It will not surprise me in the least to see many more "no" votes arise from the Republican side of the isle when the final tally is taken.  The Republicans will sieze the "opposition" argument for use during the mid-term elections.

35+17+29 = 81 ... 

So I take it there are 19 more Senators who are also undecided?

19 are neither Yes, No, nor Undecided if the total is Yes = 35; No = 17; Undecided = 29.

Neither "Yes, No, nor Undecided" == still going through the mail to see if a check has arrived ?

The 29 courageous Senators can't commit to "Undecided"

Maybe they're going to vote "Present"

Possibly they're waiting for a higher bid, after consultation with Blagojevich, Sen. Roland Burris, or Sen. Mitch McConnell.

There has been a nationwide bank run on $ 100 bills.  The undecided are walking around Washington asking each other- is that a wad of cash in your pocket or are you getting ready to do me next?

It does not matter who the frontman is, the real owners of the Federal Reserve dictate what really happens.

Just emailed Menendez in NJ, told him he had lost this life-long Democrat's vote forever with his Yes vote.  Hopefully a lot of other people are doing the same...

Yeah, I just emailed Webb (D-VA), told him pretty much the same thing - that "Change IS coming to Washington", even if it takes two or three election cycles to complete.

If the undecideds (29) + pre-undecideds/not tellin' (19) (48 total) go 50/50 against, that's 41 (17+24) against.

No cloture.

Rockefeller is voting no? Ben's Bilderberg brunch buddy? If Rockefeller votes no and cloture fails, you can be sure that the ensuing chaos is intentional.

I assume Ben will get reappointed - Obama will do whatever it takes to prevent a big embarrassment.  With that in mind, maybe the Senate should approve the reappointment on the condition of a full audit of the Federal Reserve.  Maybe that's the best we can hope for (I understand that the reappointment should be based on the audit, but that ain't gonna happen).

Why are people like Dorgan, Boxer, Rockefeller and Feingold voting no?  Is this the same reason Sanders is voting No?  Liberals see the Central Bank as obstruction to their own power..? 

I never understood why this push for a Fed audit was coming from the two opposing idealogical spectrums.  Paul/Grayson in the house for example and DeMint/Sanders in the Senate?
