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.

Any who have a FarceBark page can visit

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.

"you have to wonder how much these guys are getting from the banks not to call him on this bullshit..."

Our leaders are not chosen for their intelligence or achievement but rather because they are able to win the peoples’ trust and are willing to betray it. They are chosen by a small satanic cult – cabalistic bankers and Freemasons – that controls the world’s finances and media. Our ‘leaders’ are junior members of this international cult, called the Order of the Illuminati.”  Henry Makow, Ph.D, “Illuminati – The cult That Hijacked the World”

While the impacts will be vast, CoreLogic points out the immediate impacts of the QM and QRM rules will be minimal because for the next seven years, loans that meet

the underwriting requirements of the GSEs and the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) are exempt from the new guidelines

Currently, about 90 percent of newly originated loans are backed by the GSEs and/or FHA, so the market will be able to continue in its current path for the next several years.

So even though About 60 percent of loans written today would not be acceptable under the finalized rules for a qualified mortgage (QM) and the anticipated rules for a qualified residential mortgage (QRM), according to new researchfrom CoreLogic. Since 90% of loans are exempt from these rules what good are they?

They are depriving the market of private participation?

Bernanke, you stupid motherfucker, you know as well as everyone else here today that the purpose of QE is to disrupt the MBS and Treasury markets.  And now you're lying about it under oath!!!

"He's doing god's work so any oath in contradiction is blasphemous and non-binding"


Yep, god's work! Just gotta understand who the jews call 'god'!


“Most Jews do not like to admit it, but our god is Lucifer   -so I wasn’t lying. -and we are his chosen people.  Lucifer is very much alive.”    The above is an exact quote of Harold Wallace Rosenthal, former top administrative Aide to the then Senator Jacob Javits, who was defeated in the 1980 election.

"Mispricings"?? Did Bernanke just admit that the Banks are propping up the markets with the reserves given to them by the Fed to adjust for "mispricings"?

The Dems are desperate for Benny to lay the blame of the sequester at the feet of the Republicans. They don't actually give a shit about the debt. Grandstanding fucktards.
