Bernanke Testimony Day Two Webcast - This Time Before The House Committee

Tyler Durden's picture


Yesterday Bernanke testified before the Senate: today it is the turn of the House to grandstand. The prepared remarks are the same, but the Q&A will certainly be different, and will focus mostly on political talking points surrounding the sequester, with little to no talk of actual monetary policy. After all, the last thing anyone in Congress wants is the man who provides the deficit funding to pull the punch bowl.

Bernanke looks like he's at death's door. Someone should pour a pot of scalding hot coffee on his bald fucking head to wake him up.

Maxine Waters (D-CA) & ranking member of the House Financial Services Committee, is one of those CONgresspersons who talks R-E-A-L-L-Y LOUDLY & HALTINGLY probably as a result of the fact that she is so disrespected by even his fellow criminal CONgressional scumbags, and she feels the need to SPEAK UP and fake PROJECTING CONFIDENCE to try and divert attention from the fact that operates at the level of 1st grade arithmetic.

Well, have I got an event for you! 

Any who have a FarceBark page can visit http://www.facebook.com/events/211694208972279/

to see "A Mass Citizens Arrest On OUR Elected Offici..

where almost 2000 have publicly announced that they plan to attend and participate. Some participants have announced their intent to bring guns.  They are trying to arrange group discounts for hotel rooms. 

Should be some interesting small arms target practice for Capitol Police and Feds. 

Bring lunch and cameras with telephoto. 

"We The People will meet at the Capital Building in Washington DC to make a mass citizens arrest on every member of congress - both the house and senate, the Vice President and President for Treason against the United States of America.

With the aid of local law enforcement We The People will read formal charges of treason against each and every one of them and then each will be arrested and given due process.

We The People as American citizens have every right to make a citizens arrest if we see a crime...See More"

I think I figured out why Bernanke hates gold so much.  He has been putting gold on the wrong side of the Fed's balance sheet all this time.  So in his view, gold is a liability instead of an asset.  One would think the Fed would hire on better accountants.

But the best line ever using the word 'fuck' was from the movie 'Get Shorty' and delivered by Dennis Farina's character as he arrives in LAX from Miami and gets a limo ride...he says,"They say the reason the fucking sunsets in fucking LA are so fucking beautiful is cause of the fucking smog."  One of the best lines ever...sorry to digress!

Deficit spending must continue to mitigate social unrest. As we move from one debt crisis to another, the stock market will move higher as there is unending pressure to invest excess liquidity. The danger is not commodity inflation, its a 20%+ move in the DJIA.

Maxine Waters speaking as of now. Reads a letter written by her maid which she doesnt understand. Wonders what monetary policy means. Praises Ben Bernanke nonetheless for his sacrifices and services to his country.

No wonder why California is in such a hole when you witness what kind of nonsense they can achieve to elect into power.
