Yellen Testifies Before The Senate: Live Stream

Tyler Durden's picture


Two weeks ago, Janet Yellen's testimony to the Senate, following her remarks to the House, were delayed due to inclement weather. Now that it is no longer snowing, she is back behind the mic at the Senate Banking Committee, where she will deliver the same identical prepared remarks as she did last time, but obviously with a different Q&A. Watch it live here.

I dont want to see these weekly testimony of some zionist bitch being grilled by a bunch of bribed yard-apes....what i really want is a testimony of what dialogue really goes on inside a synagogue. I want some insider tips and which days NOT to show up to work because some planes may crash into it.

Corker's drawl is a problem. His fawning flatteries are a further problem. Corker: Seen any instability? Yellen concedes the point: Yes, low interest rates over time can cause instability. Yellen then filibusters by enumerating well-duh sorts of indicators. So what do you SEE, Yellen? Stress tests? Corker interupts: WHAT DO YOU SEE, YELLEN? ANSWER THE DAMNED QUESTION. Yellen: No, everything's fine, dude, except for a few "pockets". We have regulatory and supervisory tools--in other words, administrative fiat--we can tell people what to do or think before we need to use monetary tools.

We are ruled by idiots.
