Boris is to ready with torches and forks!
No, careless tweeter congressman is not to invite.
In USSA, market manipulates YOU!
Ah, now you are learn Soviet Speak! In Russia, citizen does not watch television, television watch citizen.
In Russia, citizen does not watch television, television watch citizen.
Please! thats nothing, In Amerika, Drones watch citizens and then launch missiles at them! In Amerika, citizens do not read e-mail, Gov't does it for them!
In Russia television watch citizen, so Boris is walk in apartment naked (except for ushanka).
Everyday feels like the Twilight Zone but today has brought it to a whole new level. This is fucking unbelievable. There literally is no hope for the world.
Friend, cheer yourself, is not so bad... Well, is actual very bad, but is can get much worse. Welcome to Soviet State of Amerika!
Well, in the grand scheme of things, you will be alone.
When this goes down (and it will), it will be blamed on "speculators", "hoarders", "financial terrorists" (ie anyone who doesn't buy into the official script), etc etc, and as this message will be repeated continuously on TV, even by otherwise pointless wastes of space such as the Kardashian family, 99% of people out there will believe the talking heads.
Better to keep a low profile.
They will pit us against each other while they get away with murder and the stupid bleating sheep will fall for it.
just keep your head down and try not to look like grass
No, go full retard. Nobody will mess with a mad dog foaming at the mouth.
"They will pit us against each other while they get away with murder and the stupid bleating sheep will fall for it."
Sadly, that already began years ago.
<---FUCK YOU BERNANKE
<---FUCK YOU BRUER
<--- ALL OF THE ABOVE
<--- NONE OF THE ABOVE
I Bernank'd your options... (made worthless)
I have been assimilated
The problem with people like you is that you don't allow multiple choice. What a bunch of tyrants.
Bending over the american people and A** raping them with no lube is your preference you a** hat!
Ben is change last name is to "Dover".
Anal probe and penetration from bankster is not funny matter.
Boris, are you related to Yuri Kutshisnuttsoff?
No, but is once visit Doctor Turnyurhedankov for prostrate exam.
Doctor Turnyurhedankov is brilliant man educated at Stalingrad Farm Animal Hospital for his pioneering direct intraveneous potato vodka drip for general anethesia during tough times.
You are mistake. Advance in Intravenous Vodka Drip is discover of Ivan Tudrinkalot. But true, is discovery in Stalingrad.
Ivan is hero.
Is strong as ten tractors. Twice as smart.
Spasibo! You are Boris very friend! Two THX is smart as is Boris!
That one is as old as Mike Hunt
Mike Hunt was a real clearing guy. I called him all the time. Mikey liked it.
No wait, I'm full of rage.
At least we still have a monoply on Precious Metals Manipulation. In assocaition with GS and JPM.
No manipulation, PM is price fraud by REhypothecation.
Ben Bernanke responds to criticism he has manipulated stocks.
don't forget silver bells at hongkongshanghaiBC
"Oops, was that my out loud voice?" - Bernanke
Did I just say that? Is a line I often repeat (inside my head) as I'm sure almost all who have followed me can attest to. Obviously the simple question of "manipulate in what direction?" comes up since it is the empirical reality that such manipulation is impossible if the economy is in recession (save for the "un-poppable bubble called Treasuries). The question that needs to be asked...and ANSWERED...is "what happens if prices start to fall again?" cuz answering that means "you have to do your homework" vis a vis the equity market. This Panglossian "market manipulation" tells all who listen that "you don't know squat about stocks or stock markets."
"I am the Market!"
Manipulate this Ben. (pan down to crotch grab)
dont do that infront of benny, he likes it.
Maybe he'll print me some FRNs?
a bird in the hand is worth a trillion in the bush
Depends on who's bush (sorry, couldn't help myself)...
a (gold) bar in the hand is worth more than a trillion (zim) in the bush.
But I thought markets can't be manipulated. At least that is what the gold haters tell us. Surely if they can manipulate markets like libor then they can manipulate the gold market....contrary to what my fiat loving friends suggest.
THAT'S CONSPIRACY!!!!!! Conspiracy fact, for that matter, but a conspiracy nonetheless.
"This is not the manipulation you're looking for. Move along." - Bernanke MSM stooge
"It's a dry heat." - Satan
The sheeple are still very much in the majority and they still believe fiat usd is the main money, and belief is what makes money money. If fractional reserve money is called in bigtime and the money supply shrinks the price of all assets will go south along with the economy. There can be deflation of the dollar and gold prices go down vis a vis the dollar and people with cash can buy assets on the cheap. Gold will still have value but maybe not as much as hoped for. I'm saying that any card can play by the manipulators don't get too sure about things. They will do what they think is in thier best interest and do it suddenly when least expected, they might even be able to catch the gold guys, Volcker did and it lasted 20 years.
I don't know what news I find most amusing today; that they claim Bernanke "predicted" the Libor scandal in 2007 ( http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-02-06/bernanke-warned-of-risks-from-f... ) or that this article on Chris Christie The Tongue-Lashings of Chris Christie isn't about ice cream, lollipops and cookie dough.
Face meets door real soon...
The Praetorian Guard had Caligula “Little Boots” killed on January 24, A.D. 41 for cruelty possibly based on insanity (born August 31, A.D. 12, died A.D. 41, and ruled as emperor of Rome A.D. 37-41).
As he was the first of the men who would serve as full-fledged emperors, with unlimited power, and as Little Boots BenFiat is the first of men to serve as full-fledged Fed-emperor of the world, is there any parallel here? Is there any hope here of at least removal?
Though Tiberius did not name Caligula as sole successor, Tiberius made prescient remarks:
“I am nursing a viper in Rome's bosom," he once said. "I am educating a Phaethon who will mishandle the fiery sun-chariot and scorch the whole world."
Interesting that Little Boots “BenFiat” (so christened by TruthInSunshine) was educated as a viper in America’s bosom by banker operative Stanley Fischer at MIT.
Is destroying the dollar part of the plan as well as manipulating the markets? Because if is and I think it is then it's an impeachable offense and possibly treason.
But Congress...........we are doing this for you and the people. We are folllowing our mandate and thus, "we are abandoning the free market ideals, in order to SAVE the free market." Haven't you noticed the cost's of ipads are down....which is proof that we know what we are doing. And...all that other rise in costs for basic neccessities of living are only transitorial higher...however, they are within our mandated target of 2% inflation, per year, (I think, did I just say that outloud) You understand?
i wish for every paper fiat dollar ben has printed to be rammed down his throat
Cut this dwarfs fucking balls and cock off,
And staple them to his fucking head with a pick axe, a fucking dull, blunted one.
Bernank you dwarf fucking prick, just to let you know, you have been "Chosen" to spend a hell in eternity with satans three pronger stuck up your arse and your balls pickaxed to your head. You poisened like cunt.
Sodomization at its finest.
its truly amazing.
yesterday europe is up big for no reason, so of course our markets follow.
today europe is down big on poor earnings, and yet our markets go the opposite way in the green.
its such a fucking joke. fuck u bernanke and obama, fucking bastards
Poor earnings = "Get to work Mr. Chairman!"
Great earnings = Buy moar stawks!
A can't-lose bet, no doubt.
I'm still waiting for this bullshit master to concoct a policy that will manipulate markets such that gold is sold and exchanged for his worthless fiat credits. Get to work Mr. Dickshit!
Benny Bernanke would feel right at home wearing an orange jumpsuit and being the Bubba. Srewing whatever he can.
Bernanke is no better than a common thief, but a thief who has literally stolen trillions from the middle class to give to his bankster buddies. There will probably be no justice for him in this life, but he will burn forever in the next.
I thought this might be appropriate to repost. I saved this from ZH months ago. This is not my work.
I consider myself a seeker of truth. It isn’t easy finding it in todays’ world. In an alternate version of the famous scene from A Few Good Men, I picture myself telling Turbo Tax Timmy Geithner that I want the truth and his angry truthful response:
“Son, we live in a world that has Wall Street banks, and those banks have to be guarded by puppet politicians in Washington D.C. with lobbyist written laws and Madison Avenue PR maggots with media propaganda. Who’s gonna do it? You? You, Representative Paul? I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for the average middle class American family, and you curse the ruling oligarchs. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know. That the death of the American middle class, while tragic, probably saved the bonuses of thousands of Wall Street bankers. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, increases the wealth of these same bankers who destroyed the worldwide economic system in 2008. You don’t want the truth because deep down in places you don’t talk about in the food bank line, you want me on Wall Street, you need me on Wall Street. We use words like derivative, fiscal stimulus, quantitative easing. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent syphoning off the wealth of the nation. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very debt that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you pick up 1000 shares of Apple, and hope our high frequency trading supercomputers can ramp the market for a while longer. Either way, I don’t give a damn what you think you are entitled to.”
Can add lying to his résumé because that is his where his real strength is!
RBS Group sucks. In 2007 I worked a temp job there and a few of the bigwigs would occasionally stop into our building and deliver a talk. I watched them once and remember thinking at the time, "These weenies can't possibly run a bank." Then 2008 happened.
My two cents on S&P payback and Lieborgate
enquiring minds want to know who gets the fines being levied by the SEC, CFTC and whoever?
if the fines represent the value of the odious profit gained by the rogue banks, why then do the people who incurred the cost not get a refund?
are the fines taken from the staff of the bank who perpetrated the fraud, or from theshareholders of the banks or, god forbid, do they go straight back to the Fed who lends the money to pay for the fines in any case?
