Is Harry Reid The Most Hypocritical Man In The World?

Tyler Durden's picture

While Dos Equis has its most-interesting-man, we think we have found the 'most hypocritical'. Until today we thought Sandy Weill was the undisputed champion in this category, but after seeing this clip we think he has strong competition. At around 40 seconds into this lengthy diatribe, everyone's favorite Libertarian Las Vegan utters the most two-faced hypocritical words that he could possible have uttered: "I think we should audit the Federal Reserve". Between Harry Reid's recent vehement anti-Paul behavior and the whip-order that Democrats received on Ron Paul's bill yesterday, this is stunning. While the sell-out nature of this kind of politician does not surprise us, we thought it prudent for all US citizens to understand the true nature of the political class that decides an increasing amount of our day to day lives.

Yesterday's whip order...

Subject: WHIP ALERT – DEMOCRATS ARE URGED TO VOTE NO ON H.R. 459 – FEDERAL RESERVE TRANSPARENCY ACT

 

This week, the House is expected to consider H.R. 459 – Federal Reserve Transparency Act.  This bill directs the GAO to complete an audit of the monetary policy deliberations, actions, and related matters taken by the Federal Reserve System before the end of 2012, followed by a detailed report to Congress. Most significantly, the bill would repeal existing restrictions on the GAO’s authority to perform audits of Federal Reserve monetary policy activities.

 

Like all other major central banks around the world, the Federal Reserve is an independent central bank, and its monetary policy actions are not subject to approval by the Administration or Congress. While Congress has set out the policy goals the Federal Reserve is to pursue – maximum employment and price stability – the ability of the Federal Reserve to pursue monetary policy independent of political influence is critical to its ability to fulfill its dual mandate.

 

Moreover, Congress already conducts regular and robust oversight of the Federal Reserve and actually expanded GAO’s audit authority two years ago in the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. It expanded the types of audits GAO may conduct of the Federal Reserve, as well as the data that must be disclosed to the public. The Federal Reserve’s financial accounts have long been subject to audit both by the GAO and an outside, independent audit firm.

 

This bill impedes the independence of this critical institution. In order for the Federal Reserve to do its job effectively, it should not be subject to short-term political pressures. The experience during debate on the debt ceiling last summer should demonstrate to the American public that House Republicans cannot be allowed to hold our economy or our critical economic institutions hostage in order to further their extreme agenda.

 

DEMOCRATS ARE URGED TO VOTE NO ON H.R. 459.

 

Reid's magical words begin around 40 seconds into the clip...

 

Indeed, probably the most hypocritical man in the world...

Reid is frightened - he can see it all coming down.

Probably won't help him though.

Hypocritical is about the nicest thing you could say about this soddy, shriveled prick.

I wrote his Senate email asking him to let this come up for an up or dwon vote, just as he insisted that ACA must come up for a yes or no vote. I never used any of those words that George Carlin said we can't say on TV. I thought about them, but I signed it with my name and evidence that I'm an upstanding member of the community.

Now if one of you guys wants to take a bat to Harry Reid, put me down for part of your bail money. But I wouldn't tell that to Harry in the nice letter.

To call him an asshole really insults anuses everywhere.

Maybe we could kickstart that bail fund?

I don't need to add to the discussion on how we all feel about this prick. I do want to add my two cents on why I think he's doing this though. It has become blatantly obvious what's about to happen to the entire monetary system, and I believe this is his attempt to leave at least an impression that he tried to come down on the right side of history. It's far too late for that of course, so we can pretty much view it as just another rat trying to get off the sinking ship. My advice is to prepare for the worst (if you're reading this, you already know how). God help us, one and all.

Sell his paintings, and wipe the debt.  Straight up jubilee.  It can't be repaid anyway.  The 'unfunded liabilities' that aren't even counted as debt can never be repaid either.   Military industrial complex, Big Pharma, Big Ag, the TBTF Fiat Money Cartel, disassemble them all.   Then we move to restore justice, and any one found to have psychopathic tendencies is barred from heading any organization, least of all government.

I actually called him an unprincipled hyocrite in my email....but then I also sent one to Senator Kyle of Arizona and called him a bufoon for saying we should let the housing market sort itself out as we were bailing out the banks....the Mo and Ron brothers...

He has a few really choice statements in the clip:

 "Senator Dorgan has spoke out on the secrecy of the Federal Reserve System. He's spoken out on the Federal Reserve more than anyone that I know in either body. But even though there is no entity in the world that controls our lives more than the Federal Reserve System, his speeches go unnoticed I'm sorry to say."

"If the principle of underfunded mandates being stopped sounds good to Senators, then they should jump with joy and run over here and co-sponsor this legislation. Because this really overshadows all other unfunded mandates, because these go on all the time."

and the real head scratcher:

"I think it's important if people are in favor of doing away with unfunded mandates that they support the largest unfunded mandate we have in America today."

Unbelievable!!  "He's (Sen. Dorgan) has spoken out on the Fed .. more than anyone that I know in either body."   

Unfuckingbelievable.  Does he somehow not know Ron Paul?!

This guy is a zombie that sold his soul a long time ago.  How the hell to the great people of Nevada vote a neocon nazi truth-slayer cheese eating surrender monkey like this the fuck in?!

g speed's picture

cause everyone in Nevada works for the house.

eatthebanksters's picture

And Harry knows the Bernank has secrets that would hurt his cause...

 

There is some good news coming out of all this...the MSM is finally reporting things like Eric Holder's law firm's connection to Jon Corzine, Barofsky's rip on the corruption in the White House, the lying of Geithner and more.  Sandy Weill has actually done an about face.  Four years ago tey were burying this shit where it would never see the light of day.

Vegas is full of LA retirees and LA refugees who vote exactly the same regardless of where they live, and Vegas dominates Nevada. 

Many of the people that fled the Mexican invasion in Southern CA moved to Vegas and voted for Harry Reid (ya its counter productive and defeats the purpose of moving to a frozen boiling desert), but who ever said voters were critical thinkers?

Spot on Precious.  Wish I could do +100.  My daddy told me Action Speaks Louder Then Words.  Both parties bicker to show their base how great they are to them.  All the while both parties are pilfering your wallets.

I would almost bet this does not come to a vote or Reid will tell the dems to vote it down.  Whats sad is this is something most here and throughout America could agree on.

Foolishness. Reid and thousands like him in Sodom-on-the-Potomac are mere shabbatz goyim. Well rewarded servants. Not masters. In Reid's case, the controller is the Jew wife.

spoiler alert - the thread comments are great, and for sure HR is a hypocrite ("I don't often tell the truth, but when I do, it's when I know no harm will come to me") but per Dr. Engali below, the video is from 1995. So it's not like he issued the whip order yesterday and today took the floor to cover his ass.

You are right, he was for the audit long before he was against it.

He supports Bryce Harper getting an All-Star slot but not auditing the Fed?

 

Makes perfect sense.

Requiring the Fed to submit a bullshit "Effect of Interest Rate Changes" report wouldn't have changed anything.

Nice to see he used to think the Fed was a threat before he found out they were his best buddy.

I was more upset about Reid getting re-elected than Obama being elected.

Reid really is a slimy cock sucker, a regular cockaroach

He certainly is a dirty little whore isn't he?

Reminds me of the movie serpico watching this little insect, with all them dirty cops on the take. No different

Hypocritical politicians?  Big government CAUSES more problems than it could possibly cure.  Harry Reid?  Just assume anything he says is a lie.

With so many problems (some of which I discuss in my new article), so many lies and so many thieves, well, I'll say it:

Gold, bitchez!

@ 2;12 "...maybe we should combine the Federal Reserve Board with the C/I/A"   LoLz  Why would the Federal Reserve share the power?

The democrats hate the 99% as proven by their actions.

Harry Reid will go down in November when the R's take over the Senate. It's simple math. All incumbents lose their elections and Senate control goes to the R's.

You state this like it will make a difference or that it's a good thing. Please.

Republicans vs Democrats = false dilemma

It assumes your choice makes a difference.  And that both sides aren't thoroughly corrupt and in the pocket of the very same 'king-makers' (aka Big Corporate America/the Oligarchy)

I just love it when I see comments like this voted down, as it means somebody's little feelings got hurt.

So, because they are soooooo mature, they attack the messenger, yet never the message.

Are you assuming that half the sheeple are aware and can vote accordingly?

 

Still wont make a difference.

I would tell my 8 year old son! "Son, you are allowed to pick up your baseball bat and hit one man with it across the jaw, if you don't connect well the first time you can have a another shot, that man is Harry Reid". Now don't ever let me catch you using that bat on anyone ever again!"

Those wondering why the Department of Justice has refused to go after Jon Corzine for the vaporization of $1.6 billion in MF Global client funds need look no further than the documents uncovered by the Government Accountability Institute that reveal that the now-defunct MF Global was a client of Attorney General Eric Holder and Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer’s former law firm, Covington & Burling.

There’s more. 

Records also reveal that MF Global’s trustee for the Chapter 11 bankruptcy retained as its general bankruptcy counsel Morrison & Foerester--the very law firm from which Associate Attorney General Tony West came to DOJ.

... and the media knows exactly every nose hair Romney has because of their exhaustive examination of his actions at Bain but they will let this story go without any reservation.

NotApplicable's picture

That's because his activity at Bain wasn't necessarily criminal, but merely embarrasing to his political brand.
