Meet Your "Apolitical" Federal Reserve

Tyler Durden's picture

Moments after the "disestablishment" Ted Cruz (even if Goldman may have a lien or two on said disestablishmentarianism), was announced to be the winner of the Iowa Caucus, a most unexpected commentator appeared among the flood of the otherwise traditional Twitter drivel with what can only be classified as the pinnacle of polarizing political commentary.

What is most surprising is that the source of this commentary was none other than the entity that is, at least in theory, supposed to be the most apolitical organization in the US: the Federal Reserve, and specifically the Fed which spawned current Fed Chairwoman Janet Yellen, the San Fran Fed.

The tweet in question appeared at precisely 10:56pm Eastern, or 7:45pm Pacific, and it was the following:


Oh wait, that's right: moments after said tweet, the SF Fed realized what an epic snafu it had done, and promptly deleted the tweet.

Luckily, we caught it so everyone can enjoy the farce of the "apolitical" Fed, and its employees, in action:

We wonder: does the San Fran Fed deny there is any truth to this tweet? Or maybe, like the Dallas Fed, it simply does not keep a log of what it tweets?

That aside, perhaps the San Francisco Fed and its staffers can explain what "matters"?

Is it Goldman Sachs? Or JPMorgan?

Or any other bank that the "Board" has decided it is time to bailout?

Because suddenly an entire nation is curious if not a state of 3 million Americans, then what exactly "matters" to the apolitical Federal Reserve whose purpose is to serve, well, the people of America?

The Fed is, like Soylent Green, people.

That is why I don't trust it.

Sorry, I misunderstood. I thought the purpose of The Fed was to serve the interests of its shareholders, the TBTF Banks and the Rothschilds?

Was the fed talking about Trump or... Sanders?

LOL, Gotcha!! Of course, finding ANY Conservatives in SF is a little like searching for Hen's teeth?

All those pols are working to divert tax dollars to finding a treatment for the REALLY antibiotic-resistant syphilis strain that has become like a buttsex-seeking missile in San Fran.

*SF - Santorum slaying

You guys are certainly good for a few big KO's and laughs.

It is hard to imagine how these guys can run the fraudulent fiat supply for a Country (corporation) effectively. Maybe that's part of the reason why things are so screwed up right now.

So much so I would check your vehicle next time you head out the door. You never know when it's going to speed up to 90mph and plow into a palm tree.

Really? I figured something like a cherry '76 Lincoln Continental big enough for a dozen bodies in the trunk, or a boat-back Riviera belching black smoke and backfiring like a howitzer. :)

Iowa sucks monkey dicks and is inhabited by proven morons.

They picked Obama in 2008.

..but that is not the worst part.

After the election there was a story of a fresh college graduate who came to Iowa to campaign for Obama. He ran his campaign in some pig fuck shit hole.

The locals liked this know nothing douche nozzle that they asked him to stay and be their mayor.

That there is a clear indication that the town is inhabited my morons.

Besides Ethanol and this scam they run every 4 years on politicians, how else do Iowans make money???

A few years back the Richmond Fed for some reason or another decided to fly the rainbow flag of the GLIBTQAs of the world.  A complaint was made, but the local Fed explained "we're a private organization" and can fly whatever flags we like. 

True dat.

And so it begins.

"uick explanation of what you're watching (voter fraud):

The important problem is that the Bernie counters recounted everyone, while the Hillary counter was literally recorded telling someone else that she only added newcomers to the count she had before, and then when asked if she recounted everyone, she lied to the organizer and said "Yes". This means that if anyone left the caucus site who was supporting Bernie, then they were removed by Bernie's recounters, but any Hillary supporter who left the caucus site was treated as though they were still there for the purposes of the recount. Thus, artificial inflation of her numbers occurred unless everyone who left was a Bernie delegate, on top of the Hillary campaign surrogate lying to an election official to cover up her (negligent at best, malicious at worst) mistake.

And they left the recount up to a Yea Nay vote, which is just ridiculous."........

If only they could be made into Soylent Green.  I'd eat them for the pure pleasure of passing them through later...

Wow. Wow. What a devolution. They shouldn't be allowed to have ANY public opinion on this, whatsoever. Can no one be prosecuted anymore?

Condition 1SQ's picture

Agreed, this is actually quite appalling.  They're losing it.  An immensely powerful organization which is for all intents and purposes shielded from oversight because it is considered apolitical .. slinging mud.  Someone has some 'splainin to do.  But don't worry, nobody will actually lose their job (God forbid).

August's picture

The FED and its branches are private organizations.  While they tend to maintain a degree of outward discretion, they are not a government body, only sorta pretend they are when it suits their purposes.

In other words, they could deck their halls with Hillary stickers, and there would be no violation of law.

I pray to prime creator to keep the fucking money changer indefetaly in the fires of hell, where Jesus can watch them burning.

Praying is for children to quieten them down. If you like to achieve something, praying does not do a thing.

This network is connected to a BS network - it says 'bs-serving-sys' snd secure, but it never actually gets there.

“I will say this: I’m saddened to see that some here, not everyone, are so consumed with hate,” he said at the outset of the video, his comments prompting continued booing and yelling out from some members of the crowd. “I will say this: If you will not stand with Israel and the Jews, then I will not stand with you. Thank you, and God bless you,” he said, walking off stage to scattered applause and boos.''
