Geithner Out Before End Of January

Tyler Durden's picture




 

We are sad to bring you the tragic news that Tim "TuboTax" Geithner, who has long made clear his plans to leave some time in early 2012, will be out before March, and in fact before the end of January as it turns out. From Bloomberg:

  • GEITHNER SAID TO PLAN DEPARTURE BEFORE DEBT CEILING RECKONING

We are also confident readers will somehow be able to overcome the unprecedented sadness at this particular rat's departure from the Titanic, metaphorically speaking of course.

And while Timmy's replacement (assuming it is of the Homo Sapiens genus and species) is still unknown, we know what some of the prospects think about serving the public:

American Express Kenneth Chenault had been approached for job, has indicated he isn’t interested

 

Administration officials had approached American Express Co. Chief Executive Officer Kenneth Chenault about joining Obama’s second-term cabinet, possibly as Treasury secretary. Chenault isn’t interested in leaving his private sector job, according to a spokesman.

More from Bloomberg

I'm guessing you're not going to be very happy, because he's in line for a serious promotion. The only question... public (IMF) or private (Kissinger).

I'd like to see him as the new head of the Libyan Central Bank. You know, where the action is.

Greenspan and Geithner, the two US citizens who hold Special Privileges within the sovereign state of the Bank For International Settlements, Basel, Switzerland. They are protected from ALL prosecution in the discharge of their duties, save flagrant criminal activity, both for during and after holding position of CPSS Chairman (for Geithner) and Fed Chairman (for Greenspan) at/for the behest of the BIS.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0r3-MNonZ64

I bet less than 1 in 100,000 Americans know that [vital] snippet of information.

Exactly who did Greenspan, and who does Geithner work for….no-no, their REAL boss, not who pays them their pocket money. I bet only a few of you really know!

Question: why would Greenspan be given Special Privileges in being protected from ALL prosecution in the discharge of their duties if he was Fed Chairman, not BIS Chairman?

Answer: because the Fed answers to the BIS, all the Central Banks answer to the BIS...it's the Global Central banking hub. The BIS is the financial arm, just like the UN is the physical arm and the IMF are the debt collecting arm of the multi-banking dynasties. The US is actually the War arm (seriously, the US does all the dirty work when and where it is needed. America lost its sovereignty years ago, they’re just going to war on the US citizen now simply because the US citizen is sick of America being at war all the time…it’s taken 60 years tho, not bad!).

The BIS was put together after WWI with the charter to coordinate war reparations, but its real purpose was to connect and control all the globally fragmented banking centres...like the internet has a physical backbone, the BIS became the physical backbone of banking and finance. This is why war reparations became a money shuffling exercise, as there was no need for war reparations is the one system effectively spans all (like if a company buys out a dealer it effectively rights-off any debts outstanding).

 

Now Geithner is jumping ship. He is no longer useful because the Chinese will not speak to him so he has served his purpose but will resurface elsewhere where they need his pulling power.

I think it pays to question exactly why do these people linger-on long after leaving office...why do they?

Simple, it's because when they leave they add another onion layer between the sheeple and the core elite. A trusted layer which is both experienced and proven trustworthy.

So, if you look at Agenda 21 (Sustainable Development) for what it really is, it's merely a Post War plan for what/who remains......"Post War" you're thinking?! Yes, a war on the US lower, middle AND upper class.

A long time ago, I did not like Hillary.  I think it was about that crap she did with healthcare and did not involve any medical professionals.  But then she stood by Bill with all his problems (I think they even portrayed her as a lesbian to explain why Bill was fucking the help).  Then she became a senator, and then she took the nastiest, hardest, most thankless job in the world, secretary of state.  Peoples' deeds speak louder than words.  She has certainly taken "one for the team" a few times.  I honestly doubt she could fake a subdural hematoma.  I honestly do not like many people (other than Dick Cheney), but she has earned my respect.

Farewell Ode to Tiny Timmah (Tiny Dancer)

 

Blue skies, Bennay

Debt pimp, Timmay

Schem-sters for the man.

 

Prices high,

Debt to the sky,

To print is the ponzi plan.

 

Larry Summers,

massage the numbers,

marking market to a sham.

 

Now it hits me,

the fraud economy,

toilet paper in my hand...

 

Barry freaks, out in the streets,

Another ticket sent by God,

No turning back, we just laugh

The price for Ipad's not that bad.

 

Awoken man, he makes a stand

In an internet forum

Speaking on, right and wrong

The story's old news for some

 

But oh how I feel so blue

Lying here, in IOU's

Cursing you, but you can't hear me

When I say slowly, but LOUDLY

 

F' me harder, tiny Tim-mah

Countless hedge-funds hit the highway

Wash the world in worthless pap-ah

Another busy day, today...

Time for more Quotes For Times of Financial Instability:

 

“Bankers: Pillars of society who are going to hell if there is a God and He has been accurately quoted.” - John Ralston Saul

“The tendency to occultism is a symptom of regression in consciousness. The veiled tendency of society towards disaster lulls its victims in a false revelation, with a hallucinated phenomenon. In vain they hope in its fragmented blatancy to look their total doom in the eye and withstand it. The offal of the phenomenal world becomes, to sick consciousness, the mundus intelligibilis.” - Theodor Adorno, Minima Moralia: Reflections From Damaged Life

“Tribe follows tribe, and nation follows nation, like the waves of the sea. It is the order of nature, and regret is useless. Your time of decay may be distant, but it will surely come, for even the White Man whose God walked and talked with him as friend to friend, cannot be exempt from the common destiny. We may be brothers after all. We will see.” – Chief Seattle

"If you have to go to jail, go ahead and go, for you will not be alone." -Reverend Bernice King

“The wise are instructed by reason; ordinary minds by experience; the stupid, by necessity; and brutes by instinct.”— Cicero

"It's wise to be a nonperson, as far as the State is concerned, as far as possible" ~ Doug Casey

“People in a hurry cannot feel.” – Alan Watts

"Our era has become one of spectacular polarization, with folly multiplying on every hand. That is the way empires crumble: they are taken over by looter elites, who sooner or later cause collapse. But then new games become possible… There is beauty in weathered and unpainted wood, in orchards overgrown, even in abandoned cars being incorporated into the earth. Let us learn,  like the Forest Service sometimes does, to put unwise or unneeded roads 'to bed,' help a little in the healing of the natural contours, the re-vegetation by native plants. Let us embrace decay, for it is the source of all new life and growth." - Ernest Callenbach

“We talk of the Turks and abhor the cannibals; but may not some of them go to heaven before some of us? We may have civilized bodies and yet barbarous souls. We are blind to the real sights of this world; deaf to its voices; and dead to its death.” - Herman Melville

"Hell is truth seen too late." – Thomas Hobbes

“The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed… If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is then no recourse left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defense which is paramount to all positive forms of government. - Alexander Hamilton

"The cost of maintaining the pretense is straightforward: continued deterioration in the moribund status quo; more and more people, young and old, left behind; entire communities in distress; places destroyed by natural disasters abandoned rather than rebuilt; more and more people going after fewer and fewer resources that are still being made available to those in need. It is a rolling collapse affecting one person, one family, one community at a time. It’s what we have been seeing since 2008, and there is no reason to think that this will not continue for a while yet." – Dimitry Orlov

Just posting this here because it's the latest.

Midday Fast Ninnies SCREAMING "Gold Versus Stocks" propaganda today, even though everyone knows it's the silliest of canards and 100 percent INaccurate.

When they do this very loudly, it means one thing and one thing only: One of Their Own - let's hope Princess Dennis - is in horrible trouble with a Gold Short position again.

The miserable little curs are completely transparent, to the point they'd be much better off just keeping quiet. Heavy-handed propaganda like this has the opposite effect from what one would like it to have.

Meh.  Gold and stocks are rising for the same reason.  Money printing.  I think they are getting upset at the fact that stocks never rise unless gold lets them rise with it.  They want the economy to be doing great.  But it sucks.  Deep down inside they know, as I know, stocks only rise because of the easy money.  And secretly they fear every whack on gold is going to nuke them again.

Anyone who replaces "Turbo Timmah" is sure to be even more a titsucker at the breast of the Fed Res. Whomever Blobama selects will continue the wealth re-distribution scheme via ZIRP, monetary manipulation of commodities, etc. Gotta love these Plunge Protection Phonies!
