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:

  • LEW: SOMETIMES A BROKEN HARD DRIVE IS JUST A BROKEN HARD DRIVE

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...

Sometimes, bullshit is bullshit.

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).

HOW MUCH BULLSHIT IS IT GOING TO TAKE BEFORE THE PEOPLE GET MAD ENOUGH TO STORM THAT FUCKING DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA AND HANG ALL THOSE LYING, BULLSHITTING MOTHER FUCKERS FROM THE NEAREST LAMP-POSTS?

I MEAN, SERIOUSLY! THE FUCKING NSA IS RECORDING EVERY KEYSTROKE I MAKE IN REAL TIME, AND THAT GREAT BIG STORAGE FACILITY IN UTAH HAS EVERY SINGLE BIT AND BYTE OF EVERY ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATION, AS WELL AS EVERY VOICE PHONE TRANSMISSION, STORED THERE. COME THE FUCK ON!

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

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:

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 interest...in 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 laughing-stock...you'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 off...an 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:

You are right, they have been taken to the cleaners. They thought they could just play along to get along, but their industry is now almost completely destroyed. I was a big consumer of their product for many years, until it became apparent they were tools for the powers. It's like they violated their hippocratic oath, if there is a such of thing for journalism.

have you not heard?  There are no emails.  They didnt need them.  Why?  Because the IRS executives were the most frequent visitors to the White House.  Impeachable shit isnt done by email, it is talked about in person with the threat of violence if you speak out of turn.

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.

Except LL had RAID 1, which means "when I say one broken harddrive, I actually mean two broken harddrives.  NVM that is 6 standard deviations from the mean concerning RAID1 setups." 

Ask yourself people -- when was the the last time you had TWO hard drives fail on your simultaneously?

The Four Rs

Retribution: The guilty must answer for their crimes against the American people and the Constitution.
Restoration: Restore the American people, country and Constitutional republic.

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 FairTax.org 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.
