GM CEO Mary Barra "My Bad, All Fixed Now Though" Congressional Hearing - Live Feed





Following the release of the  "deeply troubling" 315-page "Valukas Report" and the firing of 'all' those responsible for multiple deaths from GM's 'Kevorkianesque' cars, CEO Mary Barra is back on the Hill to face the music once more from The Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations. Having explained in her previous testimony that she could answer their questions as she did not have the information, Subcommittee Chairman Tim Murphy (R-PA) noted, now "we will have the chance to get those answers and compare the company's findings to our own." Of course, one wonders if the politicians will ask about how GM silenced a whistleblower.

However, the report did find "a pattern of incompetence" and actions must be taken...

  • *GM REPORT CONFIRMS BARRA DIDN'T KNOW OF ISSUE PRIOR TO RECALL

Prepared Remarks By Bernanke, Fuld And Schapiro Contradict Those Of Anton Valukas In Tomorrow's Lehman Hearing





In a nutshell, Bernanke says he was not supervising Lehman, Fuld was not aware of Repo 105, and the SEC had never heard of such a concept.The only person who is not lying, Anton Valukas says that he "found Lehman was significantly and persistently in excess of its own risk limits" and confirms that the SEC is nothing but a pathetic liar lead by incompetent idiots: "we found that the SEC was aware of these excesses and simply acquiesced" and "we believe it is clear that the SEC wasLehman's primary regulator." And just in case the FRBNY thinks it can avoid claims of potentially criminal negligence "
Valukas concludes: "there were "serious lapses" in SEC, federal reserve bank of New York working together to avert Lehman's failure." In other the CEO, the Regulators and the deranged money printer all wash their hands of the fraud that very well may have led to the biggest and most dramatic bankruptcy in history, despite that the independent third party arbiter finds them all guilty of gross incompetence and possibly collusion.
