Tim Geithner Joins CFR As "Tireless And Creative Practitioner And Thinker"

Tyler Durden's picture


Well that didn't take long. It appears spending time with the family is over-rated (or perhaps they couldn't stand him either) as Turbo Timmy has landed his first post-Treasury gig (Citi next?). The Council of Foreign Relations has graciously brought this "tireless and creative" thinker on board as a Distinguished Fellow. His role... "to strengthen their capacity to produce thoughtful analysis of issues at the intersection of economic, political, and strategic developments." We assume this is his gracious 'giving back' phase before six-months down the line slithering over to the big bucks at a bank when he suspects no one will be looking...

The mutual adoration society continues..

Hopefully the CFR doesn't allow Timmah to do their taxes.

I'm sure Timmy will have an even bigger impact now that he's with the CFR......what the hell do those guys actually do again?

Who'd a fucking thought, the Conspiracy Theory becomes Conspiracy Fact once again as he is now an Official Tool of the NWO.

Fuck me.
I give up... gonna go golfing... can't take this shit


Next thing is he'll be front and center on Vigilant Citizen making Illuminati hand signs along with Beyonce and the Molochs.

And I thought he was going to either end up on CNBC hosting Squawk Box, or a partner at Jon Corzine's new hedge fund.

So long as he is just a "practitoner", I think we are all safe.... Besides, what harm is there in having a man who helped heave 6 trillion onto American taxpayer backs, now also be responsible for helping to heave debt onto the backs of international taxpayers? I wouldn't be surprised if he will be working on tricking/bribing every nation on earth into paying a direct tax to the United Nations. The UN is just looking out for the little people of the world....

Perhaps there is some hope afterall.  These so called elites are really just a bunch of inbred sociopathic pederasts.  The more they inbreed the dumber they get.  The dumber they get the more they will lose control because of bad decisions.  Some of these elite families have been around for hundreds of years and they DO NOT BREED with what they think are the untermenchen.

Meanwhile, the rest of the northern european peoples have been genetically diversifying themselves and making themselves genetically more viable.

In a few hundred more years those elites will be the three eyed, 12 fingered down's syndrome people the rest of humanity will use for medical experiements.

Hey, don't forget his standup comedy routine. When he was performing in China for an auditorium full of students, his deadpan delivery of "we believe in a strong dollar policy" had them ROR (raughing out roud).

Oh, wow, doods!  Geithner was first apponted as a fellow to CFR back when Peter G. Peterson was the chairman there, having been selected by David Rockefeller to follow him in that position.

Just as Peter G. Peterson, former chairman of the New York Fed, handpicked Geithner to follow him in that position.

Doods, it's like full circle, huh?


And Peter G. Peterson was the original financier behind Sesame Street (his wife the producer and maybe even creator of that show), so while Peterson, who has always pushed to privatize (steal) Social Security, end Medicaid and Medicare, offshore all American jobs, and sat on the Peterson Commission (to redirect interest away from the super-rich hiding their wealth and ownership in the foundations), and also on Billygoat Clinton's "ending welfare as we know it" commission, and has created a pro-austerity group within the New America Foundation (I could go on for several thousand more pages, but best to stop here), has a seriously lurid past, not even counting how he was expelled from MIT for massive cheating!

(I'm pondering if those who grew up on Sesame Street may seriously be the "Obey Authority" unquestioning types so prevalent among us today? ? ?)

You guys must understand, no one gets to become president that is not part of CFR Team A or CFR Team B. Only 1 President in the last 90 years was not on either team, Reagan. 

Timmy is being groomed to one day become President folks. Read Economist, Dr. Gary North's reasoning and understanding of CFR Team A (Democrats) and CFR Team B (Republicans). They are all for the same cause, 1 world government, but they wear different political banners, so the normal folk don't catch onto something. 

How else do you explain almost all presidents coming from about 6 Ivy League schools and some coming from an organization called Skull and Bones that only has a 15 man membership?

BOFA ANALYST: 3 Reasons Why Investors Are Too Complacent About The Upcoming Sequester

In the event of either a full or close to full implementation of the sequestration, it is reasonable to think that consumer confidence will weaken further. Non-defense cuts will hit both discretionary and mandatory spending and defense cuts could involve significant lay-offs (Pentagon announced last week that it has begun laying off many of its 46,000 temporary and contract employees). Our model suggests that a decline of the Michigan consumer expectations to the level of summer of 2011 during the debt ceiling crisis could shave 1.2pp alone from consumption growth.

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: I think the Republicans will do what Cantor is suggesting, which is to do nothing. This is the one time since election day where Obama does not have the upper hand. He had it in the fiscal cliff negotiations because you would have had automatic hikes in taxes, which is what Republicans did not want. So they had no good options. This time, the shoe is on the other foot. This time if the Republicans do nothing, then you will get these severe cuts, $1.2 trillion, half in domestic, half in defense spending.

Maybe Timmy is just a finger puppet and doesn't require a whole hand to control..  So shooting him in the face might only injure a finger of the puppetmaster.

"Getting mad at a sock puppet is not good for your sanity. Be pissed off at the hand inside the puppet."

BoBPaulson's comment is the most seriously intelligent comment possible; so very, very few Ameritards today have the remotest understanding or comprehension of who the enemy is.

True, Geithner has enjoyed a "wonder boy" existence, thanks to his daddy's CIA career (covert, 'natch) and his mommy's side of the family - - - Granddaddy Moore not only being the auto company dood, and Geo. Romney's campaign manager, but on the Moore side there's at least one or two Citi presidents in the background, etc., but it's the super-rich, the puppet masters who people should focus on.

Do you know who actually owns ExxonMobil?  JPMorgan Chase?  Lockheed Martin? Morgan Stanley?  GE?  AT&T?

Of course not, and that's they way they designed it to be . . .

Better yet, when was the last time you bought something from the CFR?  Paid them for a service?  They are funded how?  By whom?

The money supporting non-product agencies of power *should* be of extreme interest to everyone.  Curious that it isn't.

Next you'll be enlightening everyone about that lobbyist group for the international super-rich, the Bretton Woods Committee (brettonwoods.org), and the Trilateral Commission and the Peterson Institute and the Group of Thirty (group30.org), which little Timmy once belonged to and may rejoin?

And with the CFR, that makes the Big Five, I believe!
