Quote Of The Day: US Treasury Secretary Opines On "Broken Hard Drives"

Tyler Durden's picture


Presented with little comment (since putting into words an open-mouthed gasp is difficult) but Treasury Secretary Jack lew has chimed in on the IRS "Lost Emails" scandal:


Perhaps the NYPost put it best: "The thing about dogs eating homework is, it could actually happen. This can’t. This is "The dog ate my hard drive, broke into another building, ate the backup of the hard drive, then broke into six other top officials’ offices and ate their hard drives also."


We still can't quite believe our ears...

Well... I have two different computers at two different locations with two different servers, I can log on to either one and access all my emails (all the way back to about 2006, when I first went on line). My hard drive is NOT the storage device (and neither is Lois Lerner's).

The irony of it all is that they're not even semites.  Ashkenazi Khazars, all of them

Wed, 06/25/2014 - 22:16 | 4896318 MontgomeryScott
MontgomeryScott's picture

Ashkenazim and Khazarim are actually two distinct ethnic groups (two 'tribes' as it were), whose roots come from Ghengis Khan and the original hordes that occupied Eastern Europe in the first millenia A.D.. Their adoption of the religion (that they don't actually adhere to) was made as an afterthought.

The 'lost tribes' began intermarrying, and they adopted the habits and ways of the hordes in various locations; after the sacking of Rome in 70 A.D.. Their proginy became almost FERAL in the following centuries, and due to their disgusting and inhuman actions, they were kicked out of every country they tried to live in for the next 1,200 years or so. For a while, these people became known as 'GYPSIES' (they had no home or place to call home, due to the fact that their lifestyles included the most disgusting things imaginable)... their language, called 'Yiddish', even had a name for this time in history. They call it the 'Diasporah' (not quite sure of the spelling, but the emphasis is on the second syllable; pronounced 'DYE-AS-POHR'ah).

After the purges, they decided to try to 'side up' with the 'Davidians' and other branches of the 'Tribes' of Israel, and began calling themselves such things as 'Jews'. LATER, after they were forbidden from holding property, they got in to the 'money-changing' business (and the general population was too stupid or too distracted to realize who these people had descended from). I'm trying to remember the original family name of Rothschild, but it escapes me at this instant. ANYWAY...

To those that actually STUDY history; history will reveal the actions of the present and the future.

I have a saved link to the propaganda regarding 'the six million', that shows references all the way back to 1915. NO, I did not mis-type that year. It's actually quite interesting to read the articles in the New York Times and other yellow journalism newspapers of the time purporting that the 'six million' are being displaced, or are being otherwise 'persecuted' (this was before the 'six million Jews holocaust' stuff was ever even thought of).

I never thought about the fact that the Ashkenazim and the Khazarim have intermarried. Is that what Mr. Yellen is? Bernanke? Greenspan? Wolfowitz? Podhertz? That's an interesting point you bring up.

It's time for me to do my religious duty now, and bow to Leper Messiah. I hope you'll forgive me:

Be careful with what I am importing to you. It's the fucking TRUTH, you know.

yeah, HH, and there's yet another element to all this...back when i was sad, i would'a said it was the saddest part; but now that i'm funny, i appreciate it all for its hilarity.

so many among the hebrew bourgeoisie think 'they' are in on it...they figure they'll be protected by the uber-jews and that all allegiance and services rendered will be repaid with a sense, they're right; but i suspect they may've misappraised the uber-jews' view of reciprocity.  bourgeoisie jews, harken back for a moment to fascist germany, and ponder on all the protection you were afforded by those anxious to make a place in palestine...all that nazi shit was, supposedly, for your own good -- you know, such that you'll become a 'virtuous' people (doubt janus?  go ye and read theodore hertzle and his co-horts).  or perhaps an understanding of your utility to the bolsheveks will better illuminate the mystery for ya...awww, hell, don't listen to janus -- just nod along at yer synagog and it'll all be okay -- pinky-swear!

the very same dynamic is evident in media...these gum-shoe journalists and editors fancy themselves 007s and such.  when approached by the slime from any among our agencies, they start watching hollywood spy dramas and their blood starts pumpin.  these gum-shoes think they're part of something...they figure they're in on "it".  well, seems they're starting to see that they've been had -- big time. oh, gum-shoe 007s, you are a're viewed as a bunch of expendable nerds and eager-to-please pussies (believe whatever you want).

so, media, how's that partnership working out for ya?  more than two-thirds of you laid agent (not contract, 'official') at every newsdesk (the only ones with jobs remaining)...a shattered industry...the fourth estate is now nothing but a blighted ghetto.  stupid twats.  you've been had; you've been ridden hard and ravaged like a two-bit whore; you've been abused and raped...and you saunter around with your gaping vagina pleading for more.  well, establishment media, let me be the first to tell you -- the raping and savage abuse is only gonna get worse; now it's alt-media's turn to make you its bitch. 

yup, rape-holes, keep on focusing on 'hate-speech', the upcomming electo-drama, and 'terrorism' and gun-control...just like you're told. 

here's establishment media's theme-song:

i'll kiss your open sores/

Now hold on here, this Jack Lew(cifer) is an expert on a bunch of stuff:

1.  He was head of Citigroup's hedge fund leading up to the global economic meltdown, and the necessity of Citigroup's being bailed out by the taxpayers, otherwise they wouldn't exist today.

2.  He is fiscally responsible - - after all, New York University had to pay off Lew's mortgage loans 'cause Lew couldn't.

3.  Lew loves the American worker:  NYU did that, probably 'cause Lew ended collective bargaining among the grad students there.

Yup, Jack Lew(cifer) knows his stuff . . .

And about those bad hard drives on their backups:

That stuff does happen, ya know, recall that on 9/11/01, an airliner crashed into the Pentagon's west wall, killing most of the DIA's auditing team, which had uncovered an unaccounted for missing amount of DoD funds ($2.3 trillion).

Oopsy, no backup after the destruction of their computer systems that day.

But where is the Fair Tax? Why aren't they running ads on television?  It has lost its momentum and is just another bullshit organization that does absolutely nothing except beg for money and sell hats on their website.  Every once in a while they get a bill sponsored, tell you to call your congressman, and send in more money.  It all goes no where.  Until they fire up the people through media, nothing will get done in Congress.  Fair Tax takes away too much power from the Federal government.

If were to sponsor a "Buy an Ad" program where donations bought media time for some well produced ads, I'd be the first to start sending in money again.  The time has never been better with all the IRS abuse.  So what are they doing?  Selling more hats.

The other asks, "what do you mean you was chasing the dig for three days?

Let's pretend for a second that this is true even though we know it is not, these emails were sent to someone else and they have records of it. My faith in the American people to see justice be served has never been so low.  Liberals are supposed to be the group where everyone is equal right? Where is their outrage that people have been targeted for their beliefs?  This story should only exist in places like Cuba.

They only expect you to believe that Eric Holder is the Attorney General, and will be until the end of Obama's term. It's called the Chicago Way.

I'm not sure which is worse, the relentless tream o lies, bullshit, misinformation, and other shenanigans coming from this Adminstration or the hordes of their acolytes, sycophants, and other useful idiots that try to shout us down and mock us at every turn for questioning these "fake scandals"?

My theory is that these 6 lied to the original government investigators that were looking into this case.  When I have time I need to find the government report on this and see what Mz Lerner and the other top officials said to investigators.

So she was accessing her messages via POP3 and there was no server side storage???  Seems VERY unlikely.  Exchange server or and IMAP connection has been standard on .gov and biz email for a decade plus.

This is just another dog and pony show.  It's really a non issue as Team Red and Team Blue are faux opposition anyway...  This is all to give FOX News and MSNBC a simpler narrative to argue over than why we support ISIS in Syria but not in Irak.  Total bullshit/red meat for the MSNBC/FOX News dullards.

I won't believe it until Susan Rice appears on the Sunday talk shows, looks straight into the cameras, and tells us that a broken hard drive is just a broken hard drive.

I'm sure this little item is rapidly disappearing down the memory hole:

"Email-storage contractor Sonasoft was providing “automatic data processing” services for the IRS throughout the January 2009 to April 2011 period in which Lerner sent her missing emails."

Except it isn't A hard drive, it is multiple hard drives, which multiplies the unlikelyhood that it was a natural event.  Lew just flushed his credibility down the toilet.

Hey Jack, sometimes a burglary is just a burglary too, right? That whole Watergate thing was probably an overreaction to some guys just who just wanted some free bumper stickers from the DNC offices and couldn't wait until they opened in the morning.

I have worked with (and still do) elite, globalist, Luciferian-loving scumbags.  Believing that I am one of them, facilitates the opportunity to engage them subversively.

Working in an IT department, I use a variety of strategic techniques to cause them serious (at times, unbearable and unrecoverable) personal and professional crisis.  Modern InfoSec is a joke, making it easy for me to accomplish these goals without suspicion.

We can (and should) infiltrate criminal organizations, by working our way into positions of influence, being 'sympathetic to their causes', and defeat them subversively.

I am just one person with limited ability and intelligence, but have been very successful at this over my lengthy career.  Imagine what thousands or millions of smart patriots could accomplish!

Although I hate evil, I engage these people at the lowest levels needed, to create and exacerbate the largest problems for them. Although this level of commitment is not required (causing minor problems can produce profound difficulties), it is recommended in order to produce the greatest impact.

If anyone works at the IRS or knows someone who does, have them get a little creative.  Certainly, someone has accss to the criminal emails mentioned in this post, and could expose them.

We have the advantage that their crimes are difficult for them to conceal and easy for us to reveal.  Observe the methods they use to affect us.  These are the same tools we use against them.

I wish you great success, in the name of freedom, liberty and justice.

...then, after eating several hard drives, the dog $#!+ all over several file servers at different locations, destroying all data and backups forever, then the ginormous 2 billion-FeRN NSA data mining facility in Utah was lost in a tragic sailboat accident, same as happened to my silver...

WTF does a gubbermint sock puppet or minion enforcer have to do to get charged with perjury these days, read "I lied through my teeth" off a teleprompter in front of the Stupreme "it's a (direct unapportioned) tax" Court?!  Oh, wait, I forgot...justice is for "just us."
