Guest Post: How Badly Does Wall Street Want A Romney Presidency?

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Submitted by John Aziz of Azizonomics,

Apparently, this badly:

But this is chickenshit money — it doesn’t even add up to Lloyd Blankfein’s 2007 bonus.

Let’s see where the real money is going.

Markets couldn’t seem to care less:

Markets are still well up during Obama’s presidency.

So does Wall Street really want a Romney Presidency? Or could Wall Street not care less, because they know that both sides will gladly do their bidding? After all it’s not like Obama has tried to jail corrupt bankers — Corzine, who after raiding segregated accounts is surely up there with the most corrupt guys on Wall Street — has been bundling for Obama as recently as April.

Ignore the chickenshit donations. If markets fall significantly between now and November — 1300, 1200, 1100, 1000 — the powers that be on Wall Street want a Romney presidency. After all, it’s not only possible but extremely easy to deliberately crash the market when you have at your disposal algorithmic trading programs that can buy the spike and sell the dip 40 times a second (that’s 2400 times a minutes, 144,000 times an hour). No S&P crash? They’re happy to stick with Obama.

Maybe ZH can clarify.

Does this take into account SuperPac donations from WS?

Revenge votes for Obama is the solution. Black balling Dr Ron Paul was not a smart move this time.

No self respecting Ron Paul supporter will vote for Mitt Romney since he is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Rothschild's and Rockefeller banksters just as Obama is.

The Presidency is a wholly owned subsidiary of the international banking cartel, multi national corporations, and Goldman Sachs/JP Morgan.

Many millions of Ron Paul supporters like me will be voting directly for Obama in November in a political strategy so we can get a real Liberty candidate on the ballot in 2016.

If you don't like Obama next year, then impeach him for illegally attacking Libya, gun running fast and furious, and being disqualified for his forged birth certificate.

Fox news is an infomercial for the republicans and the GOP. MSNBC is an infomercial for the democrats, ABC, NBC, CBS, and CNN are left leaning, brainwashing, social engineering scum. Try not to get your news from them.

What's Romney gonna give me? Will he cancel the TSA/government 1.2 million hollow point bullet order, abolish NDAA, and the Patriot act? Then fuck him.

The war on a Military Tactic(Terrorism) used by The Base(in Arabic Al-Qaeda) is idiotic. The base doesn't even have any tanks or boats.

The political process is dead to all but Wall Street. Only an armed revolution, a removal of all in office, burning down the federal reserve and member banks will fix this republic...

Yep - exactly.  That is why central banks are buying gold.  "Look, we have the gold still.  We know we messed up, but this new system with our gold will work.  We promise."

You are correct about the candidates, Michael, but you should know that Ron Paul's wife, daughters, and formerly his father have been involved with the Masonic order in spite of his denying that he is a member and that he respects the organization. The only person I have seen who is free from these Luciferians masquerading as Jews is Pastor Chuck Baldwin, but he moved to Montana to run for Governor and looks to be out of it. Vote with your dollars and buy gold and silver, it's the only vote that matters.

You're full of shit.

ABC is owned by Disney

CBS is controlled by Sumner Redstone through National Amusements, its parent.

NBC is a joint venture of Comcast and General Electric since 2011 (and before that, jointly owned by GE and current Universal Music Group.

CNN=TIME-WARNER TBS - AOL

FOX= Duh

There isn't a single media outlet in this country that doesn't have a republican/conservative ownership.

Let me ask something that is never considered. WHY have the current voting process in the US?

 

Depending on which voting process is chosen, the ultimate winner can be chosen, that is how much voting processes matter.

 

Yet we never ever discuss this in politics. We say "democracy" and then pretend that the greatest part of the problem is not in the implementation.

Well IMO there is no better alternative, and we need to make decisions that affect everyone sometimes. I have no naive assumption that democracy automatically leads to good results, but as I said I know of no better alternative.

Funny thing is that people still believe in the rothschild and rockerfeller bullshit, given that all the villains are laid out for you quite plain and clear to see, why do you find the need to invent a bogeyman?

Nope. it's even funnier that people like to deny things that are avidly published and promoted in the Media. Then again you probably still think Bill Gates was at one time the richest man in the world. Nevermind that there are brokers raking in $100 Billion a year in sales with a 5% cut, and some of those guy's have been doing it for decades. That's ok though, WSJ told you who the enemy was right? 

You're so confused that you don't even know what to believe. See, the media is working just fine.

avidly published and promoted in the Media.  ?!?!?! WHERE, not some bullshit conspiraloony site, an actual reputable site?

 

Nevermind that there are broker's raking in $100 Billion a year in sales with a 5% cut ?!?! evidence please?

See all this crap when the evidence is clearly laid out? Where are the brokers making 100bil a year? Where is this keyser soze? Where is the pressure coming from agent cleon?. Honestly the lack of evidence is the most startling thing, you keep saying its avidly published but most of the time its only there if you want to see it.

Reputable site? It's in the paper news buddy, they've been printing it in Newsweek, The Economist, WSJ for the past 30 years. The London markets are ran by the Rothschilds, did you really not know this? 

 

The evidence is released quarterly in Public revenue's of each broker. It's public information if you know what you are looking for and know how to read the information as presented.

 

Speak proper English boy, not that Chav shit.

Plenty of evidence here:

The Money Masters A full documentary on the history of US Anglo banking:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_9wYu1SR1Wk

The Federal Reserve Banking Cartel

Part I

Part II

Part III

Part IV

Part IV

Also try readying "The Creature From Jekyll Island"

And here is a quote direct from David Rockefellers memoirs:

"Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure - one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it."

Im hardly going to accept a youtube video and some shoddy wordpress articles as evidence when someone claimed it was in the mainstream media.

however i couldnt find the david rockerfeller quote outside of conspiracy websites.. however i did find wiki quote directly gave him this quotation 

 

I don't recall that I have said — and I don't think that I really feel — that we need a world government. We need governments of the world that work together and collaborate. But, I can't imagine that there would be any likelihood — or even that it would be desirable — to have a single government elected by the people of the world.

 

now actual proof rather than conspiracy bullshit that is nearly always wrong.

Main stream media isn't there to inform you it is there to control you. It is owned by the same banks and the corporations that have taken over the USA.

If you are unwilling to review the information I provide or even read the articles or watch the documentary before replying and seek to call them shoddy sources when in fact Dean Henderson, G. Edward Griffin and Bill Still are widely respected authors/researchers and write highly sourced material then I have nothing more to say to you, good day.

FWIW: One large crack with the One World Gov't Theory:

If everyone is under the same gov't, how does the gov't go to war? Attack the Moon? War has probably been the biggest political motivator to push an agenda on the people.

You really think I will waste my time here by digging up the information that is known by just about everyone else here already? Do you really think you are that important that I would think your ridicule would harm me here? Do you honestly think that I give a shit if you know the truth or anything about what is actually going on?

 

I posted to point you in the right direction on where to find what you were seeking, if you are too damn lazy to go find it on your own I don't give two shits about you. I'm not beholden to your selfish desires. I do not owe you anything. I do not have to prove myself to you, because you have nothing of value for me. I am not your servant, and certainly I am not concerned if you get eaten up in this system. I'm more likely to put you out of your misery than to help you grow up and learn to stand on your own. Re-think your being on this site, and seriously think about your position in the world in an honest manner. You are just a bag of useless flesh here. Say whatever you want, but understand that none of us owe you damn thing, and if you can't follow the leads that are posted here without demanding us to waste our time to educate you, you are probably wasting your time on this site.

You are still under the impression that I or anyone else here is under the burden to prove something to you, you are very mistaken. No one here owe's you anything, and you are here at our detriment to benefit yoruself. You have the roles mixed up in that moronic mind of yours. 

Violent? Since when is speaking the truth violent? Violent would be me using physcial force against you. Holy shit you are a confused individual.

" I'm more likely to put you out of your misery than to help you grow up and learn to stand on your own" passive aggressive much?

you were the one who claimed the existance of so called evidence, you have failed to provide any, therefore one can assume you are lying... "the rothschilds control the london markets" where is the evidence for this?

 

im sorry but if i claim the sun is a spacehopper i better have evidence to back it up...

Oh now you're my shrink? Nope you just now encountered me. You do not understand this site very well. There are no rules for conduct here. You are on your own. If your skin is that thin, you will find yourself constantly abused and frustrated. As for my posting, go back. I say what I think to everyone. Passive Agressive would be me not saying anything but behaving intolerant to you. Do I need to show you how to use Google as well, so you can actually look up these terms before you post them will-nilly? 

 

I pointed you in the right direction because you asked. The topic is far too broad for anyone to want to waste their time educating you. The burden of understanding is on you. Thinking on term's of proof is thinking on faith based on the isntiutiton. That is the nature of statism. Maybe you haven't noticed, but you're on a site ran by a bunch of Market Anarchists, and particupated by Market Anarchists. You are the minority here, and your scratchy Statist voice has no sway here. 

 

No if you make that claim, you make that claim. No one cares here. Just don't expect anyone to get their panties in a wad asking you to prove it. We don't do that shit here. If you want proof of something, or want to know something, you ask or look into it yoursef.

I can be sure that they are at least as intelligent as myself. If this is the case then they are pretty scary people, not to be doubted. I'm nothing more than trained predator with expansive experience and beyond normal visualization abilities. They are trained Aristocrats with at least the same capacity and endless finances to support them. 

To doubt that there are people of that nature, is to doubt reality or individual motives. 

I'm intelligent enough to plan out how to infiltrate, assault and plan an escape from an objective without notice, and never have a single person be aware that I was ever there. The people that conceive of this sort of training work for the underlings of those higher bankers, so it's not unreasonable to acknowledge that there is a mutual awareness of skillset in such a top down organization. I have learned in my time that you can never count on or assume that your adversary is ignorant, or unintelligent. The moment you do, they will surprise you. It's pure arrogance to think and say that another person is not at the least intelligent or cunning.

He's a Zionist troll.  He works for the Zionist media and their Zionist masters.  And he demands someone here shows him in that Zionist media that there is evidence of Zionist conspiracies.   His job is to make the unsuspecting believe the Zionist media is actually telling the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.  He tipped his hand with his ridicule of conspiracy.   Conspirators, like Mr. Cheney, would like us to believe that everyone that believes conspiracies exist wear tinfoil hats.  One wonders why Congress passed laws against conspiracies if they don't exist.  The official version of 9/11 is also a conspiracy, of course.

Want to bet on what his take on 9/11 or the USS Liberty is?

'We are grateful to The Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine, and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination [read as 'democracy'] practiced in past centuries."

Would QE3 be good or bad for obama?

Ben B. doesn't want to appear "politically" motivated....but....

Would QE3 make the market appear "recovering",

Or, would it make BO's addition to the deficit appear greater?

Would enough voters know the difference?

The Bernank could care less about appearing "politically motivated". He's "Mr Princeton Economics" and has never mentioned Global Labor Arbitrage as the real culprit behind employment problems in the US. He's has to pull to the trigger now that there is a horse race. It's just a matter of how much mid September.

Case 1: Obama tracks to win election.

QE3 with moderate value. Allows him to socialize more ass-raping of the American people at a diffused rate in Obama's second term.

Case 2: Romney tracks to win election.

Benny goes full retard with QE3++. His little place in economics history is threatened with removal from the Fed so he'll have to blow his wad. Not only with there be ass-raping of the American people, it will be dry penetration and no cuddling afterward.

Case 3: Dead Heat.

This would probably be a wildcard but Case 1 fits here.

Bottom line, Global Wall Street gets their fiat fix any which way it goes. So sad.
