Chuck Schumer's "Bottom Line": Don't Hurt The Stocks

Tyler Durden's picture




 

We commend Senator Schumer for being the first Senator to openly step up and admit that the worst case scenario in the whole Congressional 3D IMAX farce is not about keeping the economy afloat, is not about preserving jobs, but merely keeping the stock market at or near its all time highs:

  • Schumer Says He Worries About Monday Stock Drop on Default Risk. "This is playing with fire," Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., tells reporters. Says he worried whether “the stock market will go down

For those confused, Schumer has merely admitted what the vast majority of the Senate, where two thirds are millionaires, and nearly half the House, think: don't you dare let the manipulated precious, which at last check was just 1% below its all time Fed-balance sheet derived highs, drop.

And speaking of Chuck Schumer's "bottom line", here it is.

What is most pathetic is not that Schumer is just another corrupt, complicit muppet doing Wall Street's bidding: everyone else in Congress is too (or would be if they had the opportunity). What is most pathetic is how cheaply he has sold himself: $514,840 in career "contributions" from Goldman is what Lloyd Blankfein calls Saturday lunch money.

"What is most pathetic is how cheaply he has sold himself"

Now,  let’s be serious ... they do not hold real power anyway ... the real power lies elsewhere.

just a vote (one of the most important actually) in Senate history: the creation of the Federal Express Reserve was passed by the vote of ONLY 3 brave corrupted souls on December 23 when everyone else was enjoying their well deserved break at home.

Schumer thought balloon....

Those fuckers.  Boehner and Reid.  Especially the little sniveling fuck Reid.  They lied to me again, the fucks.  Led me to believe that everything was ago, all hunkie dorey, smooth as a baby's oiled ass silk, softer that Merkel's upper inner thighs, but oh fucking no.  So I still got my leveraged 500% spec longs open over the weekend.  And that's my fucking money, not some customer's or something backed by the taxpayer.  No, my fucking money. And those assholes at Goldman and Corzine told me to just let it ride, lookit all the money you're makin' Chuckie Boy.  Chuckie Boy my ass, I'll bury those fuckers, bury them...  Goldman'll pay for this shit.  Pay ME for this shit, Goddamnit...

And so it went, another day in Paradise with Chuck

EBT down.
Just an upgrade glitch surely....
http://boston.cbslocal.com/2013/10/12/computer-upgrade-blamed-for-nation...

Computer Upgrade Blamed For Nationwide EBT System Shutdown On Saturday

BOSTON (CBS) – A possible glitch in a computer system upgrade was causing major problems nationwide with the Electronic Benefits Transfer System on Saturday, as a countless number of shoppers found themselves stranded at the register.

Reports from around the country began pouring in around 9 a.m. on Saturday that customers’ EBT cards were not working in stores.

The glitch, however, did not appear to be part of the government shutdown. At 2 p.m., an EBT customer service representative told CBS Boston that the system was currently down for a computer system upgrade.

The representative said the glitch is affecting people nationwide. She could not say when officials expected the system to be restored.

People calling the customer service line were being told to call back later.

State officials said they were preparing a statement to further explain the issue.

The federal EBT website was unavailable due to the government shutdown.

 Schumer and most long-term members of Congress have profitably invested in the stock market,

many thanks due to the fact that they were exempt from insider trading laws.

Until most recently that is, when insider trading was ostensibly made illegal for them, though also made near impossible to prove or enforce.

Today, the market is all they have.   They can manipulate it at will and skim billions from the small guy within hours.    This corrupt Congress just ignores it and counts their winnings every day.   Everything is about saving the markets and keeping the status quo going.  Comments from the big banksters that the economy will collapse if they don't raise the debt ceiling.   So What!  90% of the country wouldn't feel it unless they cut their handouts.   Wallstreet is the biggest beneficiary of QE, while the zero rates haven't done crap for the little guy.

I remember in 2009 when Bernanke starting his pumping and a congress woman from CA, walked up to him and thanked him for saving her 401k.   I couldn't believe it.  Now it's an every day theme in Congress.  Save the markets at any cost and Schumer is at the top of the crap pile.

He is the Symptom of the Greed that is prevalent in our business and government leadership throughout.

This whole government Scenario is So Surreal.

This is/was the United States Of America.

Who from our previous generation could have even conceived of the idea that this Once Great Nation

could default on it's debt?

Who even ten short years ago could have thought of it?

Who would have believed that this Once Mightiest Nation On The Planet

could have fallen into decay and corruption in so short a time?

America's descent into The Abyss Of Ignominy because of our leaders has come breathtakingly quickly

and taken so many unawares.
