Credentials, baby.  Once you've got the cred, you can write your own ticket, your words are divine truth, and worth a lot of money to someone who needs an endorsement.

QUIZZ: "Department if Justice is in which of the four branches of government? JUDICIAL, Executive, Banking, or Legislative?"


If you answered EXECUTIVE you can pat yourself on the back. If you answered JUDICIAL you must have graduated from a public school.

There are other branches of government besides "banking"?...

Hey! I've seen that list before.

However, Tyler's looks much better organized. ;-)

Glenn is too funny, should be the slogan of Columbia econ - "Give it your best shot!"

Sadly this tool had a lot of influence on US economic policy over the past 20 yrs, particularly under Bush 2.

This is an INCREDIBLE Public Service Zero Hedge does in terms of shining the spotlight on the absolutely corrupted-beyond-salvation state of the nation, where whether it's academia (those doing the "objective" teaching to the next generation-- whose drivel is largely bought & paid for), alleged state and federal regulators (or non-regulators, to be more precise) "policing" industry (particularly banking & financial services), CONgress, the Executive Branch of BigInefficientCorruptGov, or any other entity that's literally a front group for private banking interests that have hijacked allegedly "sovereign" nations.

actually true. Once Iran has nukes, Isramerica can no longer force it back onto the petrodollar. As for Hubbard, just your average, well-paid shabbatz goy.

Exactly!  flacon still believes the false central state / international banking cartel false narratives.

The Executive Branch is the "curtain" to the gang bankster OWNER AND CONTROLLER "oz."

Get with it, flac!

Yes, USA became a Corporation in the late 1800's. "Government" is really a misnomer. You are beholden to Uniform Commercial Code unless you express your remedy and reserve your rights. 


(All that to say, yes, I get it. ) :)

The above link will take you to a site that will explain your true rights.

The people taking your rights are lying to you.

UCC codes are only for foreign contracts.

You are not a "person" under color of Law.

That is Lawyerspeak to induce you to give up your rights.

Look about 4-5" down on page and read UCC codes first!


Thisson's picture

You are both idiots.  The UCC governs commercial transactions.  It codifies how things like checks and mortgages work, and is a set of common rules for what happens when contracts do not include certain provisions.  Maybe you should try reading the actual document instead of reading some inane webpage's conspiracy rantings.

That little punk is a Vichy piece of trash.  He uses "arrogance" as a front for the fact he's a piece of trash bullshit artist that spews lies for his gang bankster buddies.

He's a controlled minion with no ability to express his individuality, which this punk sold out long ago for a piece of the debt money fraud pie.

Arrogant? Hubbard?

Of all the slimy weasel cocksuckers 'showcased' in that movie, he's the one I really *really* wanted to kick the shit out of. Nice & slow, up close & personal, in front of his children. Until he bawled uncontrollably like a little bitch. Then, when he begged me to stop, I could prissily reply, "Well, I don't think I have to answer that question!" And go back to pounding on him. *sigh* Well. A man can dream.

Ah yes, our news reader friend sitting in his car is always good for a laff.

Over on the right hand side is a video interview with Max by Andrew Neil (ex Editor of The Times, now BBC politics front man). Notice how careful Neil is nowadays about what he says after he sold out his soul to the BBC, who fight with other MSM outlets to be No.1 at disseminating State lies and propaganda.

it is a laff of rage though, his commentary is more significant
than his reading and more appropriate than the delivery one
might find from the "professionals" in the trade of journalism.
if it doesn't make you sick and rage full you are not understanding the news

Inside Job: Afflicted by conflicts of interest, economists must share significant blame for the global crisis
Posted by Ian Fraser, February 24, 2011
" ...In one excruciating but telling scene (see the above clip), Mishkin, professor of finance and economics at Columbia University, also governor of the US Federal Reserve from September 2006 to August 2008, is portrayed as an "economist for hire" - he is revealed to have taken a $124,000 payment from the Icelandic Chamber of Commerce in exchange for writing a glowing report on the Icelandic banking sector, published not long before it started to collapse in May 2006.

In this scene, and when Mishkin gives his reasons for leaving the Fed - "So, so, uh, that, uh, I had to, to revise a textbook" - I'm afraid that he comes across as an utterly hollow man. The Hubbard scene is, if anything, even better. Here I quote from Daemon’s Movies:

"One of Inside Job's most compelling moments occurs when Ferguson interviews Glenn Hubbard, the current dean of the Columbia University Business School and a former chief economic adviser during the Bush administration.

"On-screen the cornered Dean, who is strongly implicated in pushing the Bush-era policies that caused the system to implode, and who is called out for collecting hefty checks for shilling corporation-friendly economic ideas, bares his teeth and reveals that beneath the façade of the nerdy academic lies a vicious political animal, red in tooth and claw."

After Mishkin defended himself on the Financial Times Economists' Forum website, in October 2010, Ferguson responded:

"Many of the most prominent economists in America are now paid to testify in Congress, to serve on boards of directors, testify in antitrust cases and regulatory proceedings, and to give speeches to the companies and industries they study and write about with supposed objectivity. … Some prominent academics have close ties to financial services yet neither their university employers nor the journals in which they publish require them to disclose their conflicts of interest, their financial positions, or the relationship between their financial interests and the policy positions they take.

"It is time to end this."
so we abide by this charade of professionals who cannot grasp their
utter lack of any ethic of integrity as their first priority of adherence
to ponzi finance money outweighs all other considerations and "intellect".
that is what we call balanced, normal and healthy. the artist taxi driver
makes the point in the clip regarding the bbc reportage on the privatising
prison operations, same in the usa. the research sited from the industry
itself, same in the pharma and agra and medical and .... and the conflict
of interest is never acknowledged, and this supreme ignorance is embraced
by the top experts in academia and government. this is why we are fucking
doomed beasts and nothing more, stupid doomed animals following the
worst of our generation. imo. but not the artist taxi driver ......
he has ears to hear and all that .....

Of course, we also know that Stiglitz got paid to write a glowing review of the financial health of the GSE's, right? Somehow Ferguson forgot him... curious, that.

Glenn Hubbard, Countrywide's $1200 an Hour Expert Witness
By Matt Taibbi, Rolling Stone
21 December 12

"Hidden among the reams of material recently filed in connection with the lawsuit of monoline insurer MBIA against Bank of America and Countrywide is a deposition of none other than Columbia University's Glenn Hubbard. And boy, is it a wild deposition. It's like Inside Job, only Hubbard has to answer the questions he doesn't want to answer. Reading it is like watching a man try to avoid breathing in a gas chamber."
"At issue here is the fact that Hubbard testified on behalf of Countrywide in the MBIA suit. He conducted an "analysis" that essentially concluded that Countrywide's loans weren't any worse than the loans produced by other mortgage originators, and that therefore the monstrous losses that investors in those loans suffered were due to other factors related to the economic crisis – and not caused by the serial misrepresentations and fraud in Countrywide's underwriting.

In other words, the Dean of the Columbia University business school testified that the fact that Countrywide claimed to have conducted thorough due diligence when in fact it was pressuring underwriters to approve 60 to 70 mortgage applications a day and failing to verify any income levels or other key information (to say nothing of the outright falsification of such data, which also went on on a mass scale) – he testified that these issues were irrelevant.

Investors in Countrywide loans, he reported, in specifically rebutting MBIA's claims of fraud, were probably victims of macroeconomic factors, among other things the expansion of lending guidelines by "the government-sponsored entities," i.e. Fannie and Freddie. You know, that old saw

Mitt Romney adviser criticises Obama's comments on eurozone crisis
In an German newspaper op-ed, R Glenn Hubbard says White House advice to Euro leaders had been 'misleading' and 'unwise'
"..In the piece, Hubbard said it was a mistake for the US to encourage Germany to "stand up financially weak governments and banks in the eurozone".

"Unfortunately, the advice of the US government regarding solutions to the crisis is misleading. For Europe and especially for Germany," Hubbard wrote, according to a New York Times translation of the article from the Handelsblatt.

they are all crooks and thieves, sue the bastards !

blindman's picture

and this ...
"..That's as close as they got to getting Hubbard to admit that for $1200 an hour, he swore that Countrywide's underwriting practices were irrelevant – without investigating Countrywide's underwriting practices.

As for the question of how Hubbard managed to omit the fact that the loans he compared Countrywide loans to also had underwriting problems, there was this exchange:

Q. So in the aggregate, more than half of your entire population in the control group was affected by litigation?

A. I think, well, yes, by number of pools, yes.

Q. And in neither your initial report nor your rebuttal report did you disclose that fact for the benefit of the court?

A. Well I've already told you I didn't think it was relevant from my –

Q. I'm aware that's what you said today. But the fact is in neither your initial report nor your rebuttal report did you disclose that more than half of all the securitizations in your so-called control group were affected by litigation?

A. If I don't think something is a relevant fact, why would I have disclosed that?

Q. You're agreeing with me, you didn't disclose it, right?

A. That's a factual question. You had innuendo attached to it.

Q. Well, sir, I do think it's significant that you didn't disclose that fact, that's why it's in my question. I just wanted to confirm you did not disclose that fact, right?

A. I didn't disclose the fact.

Hubbard must be a very inquisitive thinker. He took $1200 an hour specifically to not learn how subprime loans were created. Moreover, he did this non-learning for Countrywide years after the financial collapse, long after the truth about that company had already become common knowledge pretty much everywhere in the world outside Hubbard's office, long after Countrywide CEO Angelo Mozilo had been charged by the SEC with deliberately misleading investors (and insider trading, to boot), and long after the Attorney General of California had concluded that Countrywide was essentially a giant scheme to use mass fraud to dump pools of bad loans on unsuspecting marks on the secondary market.
