Wednesday Humor: F##k The Fed

Tyler Durden's picture


An oldie but a goodie... On the final FOMC meeting of Ben Bernanke's illustrious career as Fed Chair, we thought it appropriate to dust off the following musical reminder of just who the Fed are...

"... you see the Federal reserve is not a government thang; it's a bunch of private bankers we obey...and they don't answer to the people coz they pull the strings; and that's precisely why we have to say... hey hey, hey hey... F##k The Fed.."

well, he 'tapered' 20 bil/month off bond purchases, and left it in yellens lap now. So he an retire and write his memoirs and say everything was fine on his watch, when I left the fed was getting out of bond purchases, i don't know why all this stuff happened ater I left, not my fault though. And get paid massive amount of yellenbux on the speaking circuit. although hopefully his book suffers from 'deflation' like greenspans, cuz you know he wil write one. It can be titled "it wasnt my fault, everything was fine when i left'. with a FOARWARD by krugman

My buddy and I have been discussing these hangings. We've decided that since a rope has two ends, the proper thing to do is allow the rope to slide over the traffic light arm, tree branch or whatever, then then hang the condemned two at a time. With hands untied, so they can climb one another. Should be matched for dexterity, weight, sex, etc to prolong the entertainment. Such as McCain & Graham, Hillery & Fienstein, Geitner & Dimon...

True enough but one could argue that consent was never really given... If not for Woodrow Wilson selling out his country under the cover of Christmas while Mandell House made his lips move like a Charlie McCarthy puppet, it never would have happened.

NIGERIAN banks - there are a ridiculous amount of counterfeit US banknotes in Africa.  Could be that banks have gotten burned lately so they only will take 'new' multi-color multipleanti-counterfeit provision notes.  Some places in Africa won't accept ANY $US 100 notes there are so many counterfiet ones and you may be required to show a passport (they will record the number) if you want to use any large denomination dollar notes.

The US has NEVER made any of its banknotes void.  Truth is that the US makes a fortune off all the dollars held overseas in mattresses and safes.  Think of it as a trillion or so in T-Bills you never have to pay any interest on.  The smart ones hold high denomination travelers checks (no worry if they're stolen - Thomas Cook, Visa  and Amex make a fortune on the float - the only real market for $500 travelers checks was the MidEast - arabs kept them in their safes).

You also remember how a Reuters van rushed right out to the West Bank in East Jerusalem and started handing out treats?  Then the MSM here in ZUSA jumped all over itself claiming Palestinian kids were holding up V for victory signs (uhh isn't 2 fingers the international peace symbol..)


Mossad and their front company in NY/NJ (Urban Moving Systems) also ran another attempted frame on 9/11.  An anonomymous call was placed by a man claiming to have witnessed Palestinians "mixing some junk" in a truck headed for the Holland Tunnel.  Unfortunately for Mossad, NYPD shut down all bridges and tunnels and caught the Israeli assholes attemping to drive onto the GW bridge in a truck loaded with explosives.  If 9/11 had gone smoothly there would be no Gaza or West Bank left today.

I put more info on the Israeli aspect in my second video, Israeli Truck Bombs On 9/11

Ahah, the pathetic gullibility of the people who would believe that because the Fed is not owned by the government "per se", it does not represent the will of the State but rather the will of evil bankers. Oooh if the Fed would legally belong to the government, then it would all work...  /sarc

Bankers and their Fed are tools of the State. They would not exist if the State didnt want them to. The State created them, gave them powers, and can eliminate them at will. And it might just happen when full-scale socialism is ready to make a comeback, once people like you have attributed to private property and capitalism the ills of our time. And as you know, socialism failed only because it was not managed by the right people... The next time will be sooooo different....

Entertaining as a work of art, but otherwise a sterile dead end. As usual, this kind of music video is a cute, catchy artwork, which has some relatively popularity amongst a select audience, but which tends to provide nothing remotely close to a sanely integrated solution to the real problem.

Unfortunately, there tends to be an inverse relationship between how popular something is, and how profound an understanding is presented in that thing. It is NOT humour that the Fed was the result of legalized lies, backed by legalized violence, consolidating its control over the government the USA, for more than a Century, until more than 99% of what that government does is based on backing up frauds with force, which have become runaway social insanities, since those frauds never become true, no matter how much force is used to back them up. Rather, the general condition of the social system in the USA has become runaway insanity, with the Fed as the most important symbol of that social insanity.

However, the popular notion of "fuck the Fed" has nothing but emotion behind it, without the slightest shred of intellectual integrity, as far as I can tell ... While I agree with that sentiment, I am disturbed by the stupid superficiality of those who tend to express that view, who never provide any methods to back up a better money system, with a better murder system, presuming that we "End the Fed."

One can not merely "End the Fed" unless there was some more generally agreed upon ideas about what to replace it with, as well as what to do about a runaway Century of triumphant social robberies being enabled by the Fed. Of course, such an agreement is practically impossible, which is why we will have to eventually go through the psychotic breakdown of the current systems, with nothing rational guaranteed to emerge on the other side of that psychotic breakdown.

The deeper issue is that money is measurement backed by murder. Going back to gold and silver money goes nowhere, unless it includes going to back to how there will be some coherent murder system to back up the value of gold and silver backed money. The problems we have now are trillions of times worse than those which existed in 1913. There IS now a globalized system of electronic fiat money frauds, backed by atomic bombs.

The Fed is the result of the way that organized crime controls civilization, but, merely using the profanely stupid language of "fuck the Fed" does not come remotely close to comprehending that problem sufficiently to actually provide anything more useful. The deeper problem is that human realities always are systems of organized lies, operating organized robberies, operated through the application of the principles and methods of organized crime. That IS what the Fed represents. However, anything that could actually replace the Fed would then have to fulfill those functions better than the current Fed does. Too bad, so sad, that any more wide-spread agreement on that appears practically impossible. Therefore, we seem committed to follow the path of the Fed driving the USA towards mad self-destruction, and through psychotic breakdowns, due to overall runaway debt slavery generating debt insanity numbers, while nothing is likely to emerge as a sufficiently agreed upon more rational replacement.

Pareto's picture

Fuck....that!  Why do you think the FED needs to be replaced?  F**k the FED means an end to central planning where the FED is the ultimate enabler - currently assisting to the tune of $17T.  Currency debasement is only part of the problem.  Capital dislocation that occurs from centrally planned and controlled interest rates - this is the much larger problem.  Incentive distortions, and a system of production and exchange governed by moral hazard.  These are all products of the FED.

So, remove the FED - allow markets to determine prices and the production and exchange of goods and services, where the demand for money is an expression of the market place demarcated by demonstrated preferences and choice.

You make it sound like its impossible and that there's no hope.  Bullshit.  Cutout the evil and the market will respond with mechanisms for ensuring price discovery.  It always does.  Nothing needs to be "agreed upon" because THAT is just more central planning.  Get past the notion that we need some central planner to steward our now incedibly complicated institutions.  Followng a rule of law, the market will respond with a system that is efficient and fair, were the FED to end tomorrow.  You give up too easily when you believe that we need to reach some concensus - because that is just more central planning that, for whatever reason, everybody might agree with.  Like confiscation of assets.  Government is the problem, free market capitalism (not of the Kudlow kind) is the solution.

Pareto, I respond to your comment that "government is the problem, free market capitalism is the solution:"

The THEORY of free market capitalism does not include fraud and murder. It especially does not include triumphant fraud and murder taking control over that free market capitalism. The failure to understand that has enabled the FED to become a runaway fascist plutocracy juggernaut, which is probably going to turn most people into its road kill. The oligarchs driving that machine may not agree on everything when steering it, but they do tend to agree on keeping their machine rolling.

What is really happening is that the political economy was always inside of the human ecology, and the fraud in the first matched the deceits in the second. Meanwhile, the mad majority of Americans, as well as the rest of the world's population, WANT to keep the false fundamental dichotomies between economics and ecology going, so that they do NOT have to reconcile how money is backed by murder, but rather, can continue to indulge in their delusions that the "fundamentals" of economics and investing should operate hermetically sealed within an idealized political economy, divorced from its real ecological environment.

The best metaphors to describe human realities are the principles and methods of organized crime. Money is measurement backed by murder, BUT, the success of that depends upon being as deceitful as possible while doing it. The grand paradox we are playing through is the final failure from too much success at controlling civilization with huge lies, backed by lots of violence, where the Central Banks are now the Fraud Kings, who are directing what happens through triumphant force backed frauds, i.e., globalized electronic frauds, backed by atomic bombs, where what they are really doing is the most denied and suppressed of social facts, while they still keep on automatically doing more of that.

There needs to be paradigm shifts to perceive that human energy systems necessarily DO operate according to the principles and methods of organized crime, while the biggest and most successful groups necessarily did that the most. "Cutout the evil" is as impossible as to remove entropy from energy systems. We should move past the false fundamental dichotomies, and their related impossible ideals, with respect to still thinking either that governments are not the biggest form of organized crime, controlled by the best organized gangs of criminals, or thinking that somehow we can stop that from happening.



While I agree that we do not have to reach consensus, and that central planning can not be total, while the more it monopolizes, the more it is planting the seeds for its own mad self-destruction, nevertheless, governments EXIST because deceit backed by destruction EXISTS. Reaching any better dynamic equilibria between the different systems of organized lies, operating organized robberies, is extremely difficult and dangerous, especially when one system relatively runs away to become the most triumphant.

While, of course, I agree with your views about "capital dislocation that occurs from centrally planned and controlled interest rates," REAL human history has selected for warfare to build states which assert their sovereign powers, which are effectively based upon their relative ability to monopolize violence. Upon that historical basis, the international banksters were able to continue to apply the same methods to be able to take control over the government of the USA, mainly through the bribery and intimidation of politicians, as well as the assassination of those politicians that could not be bribed or intimidated.

Hence, the Fed is the result of the best organized crime, but ONLY better organized crime would have a practical political chance to End the FED. Consider how is any sufficiently successful symbolic leader supposed to survive assassination attempts? A successful movement to End the Fed would have to be resilent enough to cope with that eventuality. Right now, too many people are too immature to be able to cope with facing that fact. What good is it to analyse American history, but then ignore that when proposing idealized solutions?

Whether the replacement systesm for the FED would truly be better is extremely problematic! The theory of a democratic republic to direct the rule of law is still the best ideal theory. However, the runaway triumph of the banksters for more than a Century has also enabled them to use their funding powers to dominate the school systems, and the mass media, so that today it seems practically impossible to have enough competent citizens who would be able to understand how to effectively resist the Fed, and thereby take back control over the public money supply.

FREE MARKET CAPITALISM HAS ALREADY BEEN ALMOST 99% DESTROYED BY A CENTURY OF TRIUMPHANT FORCE BACKED FRAUDS, SO THAT THE OWNERSHIP OF ALMOST EVERYTHING HAS BEEN SEVERELY DISTORTED. Merely ending the Fed would not fix that problem. Moreover, the international banksters have built a GLOBAL system, which therefore would require more global resolutions. There would have to be an interational movement against the international banksters, for that to work within any one country, even including the USA.

However, more realistically speaking, after one assesses the magnitude of those problems, then the most probable actual "solutions" will be the mass murder of the majority of the world's population, rather than some kind of creative series of political miracles to resolve the real problems any better ... That is, it is way more likely that the Fed will fuck the People, than that the People will fuck the Fed!
