Santelli: "Still Want That Hammer-And-Sickle On The Flag?"

Tyler Durden's picture


Will we ever see 'reality' again? Judging by CNBC's Rick Santelli's one-sentence epic rant this morning of the centrally-planned farce that we are living through...

Liesman: "Why would you normalize rates?"


Santelli: "Are we really that far down the hole that normalizing rates after this tremendous number - the huge drop in the unemployment rate - that you guys still wanna have the hammer-and-sickle on the flag"

the short answer, it appears, is 'No'. But perhaps it is Rick's seething anger in a second clip that exposes the reality of "the apologists" for the Fed and as he notes: "This whole thing is a Parlor Game and the country deserves better than Fed experimentation." Before you go home - watch these two clips (and listen)!


The initial rant begins - Liesman and Santelli I




And Later in the day - even more epic-er - Liesman and Santelli II...

Liesman: "The Fed is doing the only thing it knows"


Santelli: "The economy is better despite them."


Anchor: "Where would we be today without the Fed?"


Santelli: "We'd be significantly better now! What wouldn't have been significantly better is the one-year after the crisis - that would have been worse - but we would have been 'on the mend' Sam Zell-style, we would have hit a 'real' bottom."

Ok, Santelli makes some good points. He is saying things we discussed here years ago, nothing new. Its the fact that he is saying them in the MSM that is interesting for many. Segment sponsored by PIMCO (makes you wonder if Bill Gross is short). However, for the masses 70% is how you look, 20% how you sound and 10% what you say. The masses see Santelli as some kind of fringe tinfoil right wing extremist that is fighting against jobs, yelling and yelling. That is all it is to it for the masses looking at the show.

Santelli is doing his job making the movement look like its made out of lunatics, while creating the illusion that there is a debate going on.

I wouldn't worry too much, no one's even watching CNBC. If you approached people on the street and asked them about CNBC, could they tell you anything about the station? Most people don't even know it exists. They know all about Honey Boo Boo and whoever those duck fuckers are, but they can't tell you who the hell Rick Santelli is.

CNBC is for the small pocket of the population that pays a bit more attention to the markets than everyone else who simply knows if the market is up or down based on the evening news. The even smaller pocket of the population that knows what's really going on simply ignores CNBC.

As far as "making the movement look like its made out of lunatics," this country has gone mad as a damned hatter, so anybody who's sane and doesn't toe the asylum line is thought of as crazy. I stopped caring a while ago and wear the label as a badge of honor.

As far as folks watching CNBC, does anyone really expect the average (Obama) voter to care about securities, bonds, the Euro, FX, commodities, etc?  At least 50% of the nation has no idea that investment is what keep their toys coming.  They don't have a clue, living paycheck to paycheck, subsidizing their lifestyle with every manner of government aid without a care in the world.  The WSJ reported today on how utterly ignorant our 17 year olds were about things we once assumed any literate person would know.  

Maybe it's always been like this - a small invester class compared to the general populace.  Eveb so the general stupidity we wallow in appears to be a new creature altogether.  The very folks reveling in their ignorance (unable to define the Bill of Rights, name their Senators or representaive, define the Electoral College, etc are the most assured they are knowledgable enough to elect our leaders.

I tend to agree with you. While I concur with what Santelli is saying, his screaming makes him appear unstable to uninformed viewers or Bernanke sack swingers.

You can fall asleep to any speech of Ben Bernanke. The sheep don`t understand 5% in what they are talking. But Ben is calm, and speaks in a soft monotone in constant volume, actually not easy to do, there is no expression to his way of talking or in what he is saying. That assures the masses that he is a serious trustworthy banker.

On the other hand, all the folks you get on TV from the other side of the isle are always screaming and angry. The masses see them as unstable. This side of the argument is losing the PR campaign big time.

And, it might just be, when TSHTF our side takes the blame, yelling screaming people are very good targets. Remember, 95%+ of the populace has no fucking clue what is going on, its like talking to your dog.

I get what you're saying, but there's simply no excuse anymore for being uninformed or misinformed. Information has never been as freely available as it is today. At this point in the game, it's likely they're either complicit or willfully ignorant, neither of which is worthy of any respect.

I would want to scream too if I was talking to that idiot Liesman. In fact I'd be getting to the point where I'd like to literally bite his bald head off if I were Santelli. If ever there was a shill for the Fed it's that bald headed idiot. Hopefully Steve goes to the 7th level of hell with all the rest of them.

With the advent of the internet and so many alternative media sources, there's no goddamn excuse for people NOT to understand how rotten to the core this crap system is. It all comes down to fear of the unknown and pure laziness.

It literally takes only an hour or so of watching any of the thousands of videos explaining fractional reserve banking. But nope, can't miss American Idol or peel away from Call of Duty...all while downing some nice artery-clogging fast-food and GMO-shit.

"This side of the argument is losing the PR campaign big time."

By PR I'll assume you mean Propaganda Relations, or are you suggesting there's actually still an effective way to relay truth to the Public?  BTW, good points about how Bernyankme composes himself to continue the public snooze fest.

To Santelli's defense, have you ever woken up and just wanted to scream your head off against the onslaught of FED/USG lies?  Now imagine you've got spots on TV (even though it's CNBC) wonder he ends up ranting...

Problem is, there are legions of dumbfucks like him who don't see the immorality of what the FED is doing - or they know it is anal rape of the average ciiizen and they don't give a shit because they are soul-less mammon lusting baboons.

Off topic

It's Friday, who cares...

Mildred and Chester knew each other from childhood but were in their seventies when they got married. They had to wait for Mildred's mother to pass away first. Back in those days there was no hanky-panky before marriage so Chester and Mildred were both still virgins.

Needless to say, Chester was pretty excited on their wedding night, having waited so patiently all these years.

However, Mildred was very apprehensive as she had developed a heart condition and would have to tell Chester that they could not "do it."

Chester is now sitting on the bed wanting Mildred to hurry up. He detects a little reluctance on her part. Thinking that she is shy he sends her off to the bathroom to get undressed. When she reappears in her satin nightie, he gets her to sit next to him on the bed.

Not knowing how to get things started, he pulls the first strap on her nightie. She blushes just as red as the nightie .

She is really concerned about telling Chester about her heart condition. In the meantime Chester is looking at the first breast he has seen up close since his own mother's. It is hanging there down to her belly button, gravity having taken its toll over some sixty years.

He realizes her anxiety but figures she is going to have to be helped a little more, so he pulls the second strap and sees the second breast unroll downward before him. Poor Mildred is now beside herself. She is going to have to tell Chester about her heart.

With a quivering voice and mustering up all her courage, she says, "Chester, I have acute angina."

Chester says, "I hope so, 'cause you've sure got some ugly tits."

See ya...and raise you one giggle.

Does ANYONE know Jack Schitt?

For some time many of us in our family have wondered just who is Jack Schitt since we all bare his ineffable name.

We find ourselves at a loss when someone says, 'You don't know Jack Schitt!'

Well, thanks to our sophisticated genealogy efforts, we can now respond in an intellectual way.

Jack Schitt is the only son of Awe Schitt. Awe Schitt, the fertilizer magnate, married O. Schitt, the owner of Needeep N. Schitt, Inc. They had one son, Jack.

In turn, Jack Schitt married Noe Schitt. The deeply religious couple produced six children: Holie Schitt, Giva Schitt, Fulla Schitt, Bull Schitt, and the twins Deep Schitt and Dip Schitt.

Against her parents' objections, Deep Schitt married Dumb Schitt, a high school dropout. After being married 15 years, Jack and Noe Schitt divorced.

Noe Schitt later married Ted Sherlock, and because her kids were living with them, she wanted to keep her previous name. She was then known as Noe Schitt Sherlock.

Meanwhile, Dip Schitt married Loda Schitt, and they produced a son with a rather nervous disposition named Chicken Schitt.

Two of the other six children, Fulla Schitt and Giva Schitt, were inseparable throughout childhood and subsequently married the Happens brothers in a dual ceremony.

The wedding announcement in the newspaper announced the Schitt-Happens nuptials. The Schitt-Happens children were Dawg, Byrd, and Horse.

Bull Schitt, the prodigal son, left home to tour the world. He recently returned from Italy with his new Italian bride, Pisa Schitt.

Now when someone says, 'You don't know Jack Schitt,' you can correct them and tell them you know the whole family!

If you'd seen them you might not be saying that. You haven't missed anything worth serious time spent. Main Stream Media stuck in it's never ending ground hog day.

A television pantomime, all persons playing  their part, one doing the raging dissenter bit and plenty of talking over each other that you can't follow. Are these people famous or something in the USA ? I was hoping they'd end up doing a Harlem Shuffle  ! Just for shits 'n giggles.

I have no idea what this Hollywood Assclown Squares of Expert-y-ness is talking about in the first vid.

The second vid, I generally shut my brain down as a precaution as soon as Maria B says "shtocks".  Except for Rick most of those sitting around the table, addicted to debt, are now full to the brim with "liquidity courage" in the form of Bernanke's latest pumping endeavors and are just trying to get in their "I told you so's" on Rick.  This is happening around the country because most are addicted to debt and only feel confident when the system is awash in liquidity.  It's amazing how emotions and thoughts are slaved to economics.  THis is a very new discovery for me.

As long as you keep your wealth within the system, it's NOT yours. If it's not Jamie Dimon's directly, well, someone else is holding it for him. As for equities, they are all owned by the DTCC. You are just another creditor to them.

It is such obvious propaganda. Three "rational people" vs the "loudmouthed clown". And concluded with a joking remark "at least we agree on the same suit" to take away the bite out of his rant. In their eyes he is the court jester, in medieval times the only person who could speak the truth about the king. Also watch George Carlin's American Dream skit, everyone is laughing when he speaks the absolute naked truth about the sorry state of the USA.

 The clip was weak. LIEsman completly deflected market normalization, and was using reverse psychology when his dikwad pal jumped in and asscused santelli of complicating the topic. LIESman himself complicated the discussion from the start when he discussed (subfactors) of the ponzi jobs report!

   We have a part deux.  >downloded the clip. I'm going to dissect it over the w/e. I'm so flaming livid, that I can't give an impartial opinion. Santelli got sucked in . I'll show you the charts. Not some dum dipshit LISman charts.

I have said this before; it is scripted and his anger is not real.  He is sporting a seven-figure income, enjoys fame and fortune and Towne Car trips up and down Park Avenue to clink champagne glasses with all the big boys.  Why in the world would he risk that.

Guys at this level, playing for stakes this high in one of the great scams in the history of mankind, aren't allowed latitude; he is there to galvanize the tinhats and keep a certain percentage of viewers tuned in.  That is all.

I think he's a true believer  - that he is on there is clearly scripted  -they have to show some truth  -they also manipulate things so that truthtellers are discredited by manipulated markets  - millions of educated, intelligent investors have lost billiuons due to market manipulation  -we still think fundamentals count, and people like Santelli are on to encourage us to lose money by believing that economic reality and results is just around the corner  - that is the big con. Fundamentals will prevail  -but only after the smart, honest people are all wiped out. The US military and our numerous wars and massive debt makes it all possible  - It will end badly  -but only after we have conquerred the past few holdout independent nations and the American Sheeple are so drugged out and addicted to so many things that we are useless zombie sheep  -our only hope that we are not totally braindead is that we are buying guns and ammo at an incredible pace  -faster than the billions of dummy bullets and tanks that Homeland Security is buying  -it's a race. Those with the guns and bullets need to turn off Sean hannity and Glen beck, quit being duped by AIPAC , the Zionist media and the Wall Street banksters -and figure out whho the real enemy is  -very fast.

Who actually believes government-issued employment numbers anyway? The U.S. Government is not in the
truth-telling business.

And why has the Federal Reserve tasked itself with allegedly lowering the unemployment rate? Does Bernanke now work for

Of course, Liesman's line -- "Why would you normalize rates?" -- has taken us far past the point of stupidity. I'd ask him the question, Why is the Fed even allowed to set the rates?

BLS is in part telling the truth, no one notices anymore--235,000 jobs created gets the headlines, and hardly anyone mentions that 295,000 people "left the job market" during the same period.  I'm sure they're down in the Carribean partying, and we end up with minus 60,000 potential taxpayers so we just make it up by printing money.  Like Clinton said during the Dem Convention--the math works, and it works for everyone--Dems' social programs print/Repubs defense spending print.  We're going to be just fine.

Santelli reminds me of how I used to feel about the markets five years ago, before I became dead inside.

But in fact the Fed hasn't been doing anything new since the '08 crisis. They've been doing what they've basically always done, increasing the supply of money faster than the increase in demand. It really is that simple. It's nothing new, and monetary historians will tell you how it ends every time.
