Bernanke Lecture III Decrypted, Depression 14: AIG 29: Fail 33: Rescue 0

Tyler Durden's picture




 

While the previous two lectures have had a clear message - Central Banks good, Gold Standard bad, Stability Only Through Central Planning - today's lecture, while unequivocally net positive for the staggering power of the Fed to do what it wants, was less focused. With only one use of the words 'CDO' and 'Save'-the-world, Bernanke focused on the threat of Depression (14 times) and the world-ending 'M.A.D.-bringing' event that would have been the end of AIG (29 times!). With the word mortgage dominant (75 times) and 'Fail' bandied around 33 times, it is clear where Bernanke sees the blame and how the saving of AIG truly was a Flash Gordon moment. Nowhere is this bias better indicated than the 9 uses of the 'People' compared to the 104 uses of the word 'Bank' and should you feel that this was a 'save' by the Fed, the word 'Rescue' does not appear once during the 11,431 word diatribe.

As far as subliminal messaging - a few struck us as ironic - The flow from System to Mortgages To Money To Financials, the smallness of People, 'Now Maqrket Liquidity" being so close, and finally, "Funding Just Banks" was particularly appropriate when the hand-of-wordle was applied...

Here Ben lets talk about your real interest in saving AIG. As we all know the FED and its crony whore banks blew up the housing bubble by selling their crap CDO'S and MBS to sucker investors as AAA rated investments. As all the money rolled in and you greedy ZIONIST whores couln't get enough of it, you started lending to anyone who wanted the American Dream knowing full well the entire bubble was going to burst and none of these borrowers would ever payback their mortgages. So to protect yourselves with insurance when the plan fell apart you used AIG as your payout by stocking up on CDS to the tune of 64 BILLION DOLLARS! So when the housing bubble burst that you and your crony banks created and made billions off you could also make billions on the Insurance you had with AIG... Nothing but a money laundering scam set up to fail from the start and also a way to profit on both sides of the swing. Who is kidding who? I wish I could interview you so your lip would quiver and you would end up pleading the 5th just like all your other members of the syndicate have done in the past. It's absolute bullshit that this continues 4 years later and you act like you saved us from destruction when actually you cost the taxpayers nearly 50 billion and funneled the toxic crap off your crony banks balance sheets and shunted it into a Fed-run entity called Maiden Lane III? DON'T try to sell me your BULLSHIT, this was planned back in 2002 to play out exactly the way it did and since the plans inception you and your CRONIES have sucked over 10 TRILLION DOLLARS out of stupid sheeple Americans that are clueless to the extent of your looting. And if you wonder why 2009 and 2010 was record bonus years for the whores, now you know fricking why.. OBTW I know full well that TIMMAY was the chosen one to make sure you and your CRONIES got your payout from AIG... He delivered as promised and you promoted him the the SEC Of the Treasury as his reward...

I caught some of Bernanke's lesson.  To be honest he appears much more comfortable in the professor role.  There is little of the stuttering and wavering voice that is so common in his testimonies and various other public appearances (i.e. original propaganda piece, the 60 minutes interview).  Also he is a true economic genius when analyzing and commenting on, and this is important, past events.  Real time?  Not so much.

Somehow, I now see Bernanke in a different light.

 

Bernanke has clearly stated many times that he is interested in keeping rates, and the status quo, through 2014.

 

In 2014, Bernanke plans to leave.

 

The Bernanke plan is to quietly run away from all of this before the federal reserve, as we now know it, falls into the ash heap of history!
