Fed Chair Yellen's First Congressional Testimony - Live Feed

Tyler Durden's picture

We've seen the prepared remarks for both panels:

So this morning's "Monetary Policy and the State of the Economy" (Humphrey-Hawkins) hearing should be a somewhat contentious baptism of fire for Janet as the Q&A starts.

Mr. Owl, why are "safe-haven" bonds burning this morning?

pods's picture

Please Tyler don't put "Yellen" and "easy" in the same sentence.

what about... flexible, downward sloping, or reserve-less?

SoundMoney45's picture

Just stay on the BIS provided script and all will be well.

Buckaroo Banzai's picture

Can't believe it took me this long to realize it, but "Yellen" rhymes with "felon".

Just sayin'.

Keep talkin' Yellen; Gold is up to 1,292.00...


Mad Mohel's picture

My thoughts exactly. Keep this dirty old bitch on, she is gold for gold.

jmcadg's picture

No she's awful for gold. This is a buying phase, we need her to kill gold whilst we can accumulate. Because that baby is going to head to the moon regardless of what she says.

Central banking is not going to survive another generation.  There will never be a gold-backed dollar.

Too bad losers.

NO MATTER WHAT, they have to give the IMPRESSION in the markets today like they LIKE what everything J-BITCH says....Its all about PERCEPTION. What a SMASHING SUCCESS she is TODAY....but i can only speak for TODAY.

God, she reminds me of Darth Vadar without the helmet.

yes sir...revolution time !  (after the American Idol finale, that is !)

You don't need a central bank to have a gold backed dollar.

The dollar will likely be linked to gold at some point in the future.  International trade settlement requires it, as much as we might not like that.

The best course would be for competing currencies to be legalized.  The US can issue a gold backed dollar if it wants.  People just won't trust it, having been burned very recently.

astoriajoe's picture

So we could say Yellin is sooo gellin'.

Sudden Debt's picture

whatever... I wish she would pauze a bit because I need to take a piss...

Common_Cents22's picture

I coined  Yellen like a felon.

suteibu's picture

She sounds like George Costanza's mother.

Common_Cents22's picture

like nails on a chalkboard, or an irs audit

As I mention below, Androgynous Pat came to mind.

bigdumbnugly's picture

Meat Hammer's picture

You know black women.  If you don't let them say what's on their mind, they'll just sit back there muttering...


"Dat ain't right"

"Oh, no she di-in't"

"Tie yo shoes girl, cuz you trippin".


Ok, fine Maxine....WHAT??  Get it out.  Hurry up!

Painful listening to this BS..............

From Washington to Hussain, Hamilton to Yellen.

Dwarfs, freeks and clowns.

DblAjent's picture

I would never have believed that such a squat little troll could be so well politically "tuned," saying very little of any substance, and committing to absolutely nothing.

Well done, PTB!

geeee, i wonder if the decrepit fat cow has the answers to all the questions already memorized like she did at the confirmation "hearing". what a fucking joke this clueless twit is.

Proofreder's picture

Didn't have any idea   she





All a ruse, brain is churning at top speed with hardly a pause to spit out the words, one at a time.  But only sometimes.  What's the rule ?

slightlyskeptical's picture

She does the chicken head bob really well when she becomes uncomfortable.

Perhaps her slow manner of speaking is what got the job in the first place. The retards on the hill can finally understand what someone is saying. At the very least they can identify some words. That is good enough for most of them.
