Here Comes FIATtackWatch: Ben "Big Brother" Bernanke Goes Watergate, Prepares To Eavesdrop On Everything Mentioning The Fed

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Two weeks ago, the media's heart went aflutter when it learned that the president had borrowed a page right out of ole' Joe McCarthy's communist witch hunt book with the launch of Attack Watch. The response by everyone, even fans of Obama, was immediate and brutal. Yet where Obama took about 24 hours to crash and burn, someone else has stepped in with a far stealthier method of ferreting out the traitors amongst us: none other than our old friends, the Federal Reserve Bank of the United States, which in a Request for Proposals filed to companies that are Fed vendors, is requesting the creation of a "Social Listening Platform" whose function is to "gather data from various social media outlets and news sources." It will "monitor billions of conversations and generate text analytics based on predefined criteria." The Fed's desired product should be able to "determine the sentiment [ED:LOL] of a speaker or writer with respect to some topic or document"... "The solution must be able to gather data from the primary social media platforms – Facebook, Twitter, Blogs, Forums and YouTube. It should also be able to aggregate data from various media outlets such as: CNN, WSJ, Factiva etc." Most importantly, the "Listening Platform" should be able to "Handle crisis situations, Continuously monitor conversations, and Identify and reach out to key bloggers and influencers." Said otherwise, the Fed has just entered the counterespionage era and will be monitoring everything written about it anywhere in the world. After all, why ask others to snitch for you and anger everyone as Obama found out the hard way, when you can pay others to create the supreme FIATtack WatchTM using money you yourself can print in unlimited amounts. And once the Internet is completely "transparent", the Fed will next focus on telephone conversations, and finally will simply bug each and every otherwise "private" location in the world. Because very soon saying that "printing money is treason" will be treason, and such terrorist thoughts must be pre-crimed before they even occur.

All we can say is we welcome our new Chairsatan Voldemort overlord. For it is truly he who must not be named henceforth.

Of course it is better to blame it on a mysterious and secret bunch.  Rather than the one right out in front of you.

Maybe in a hundred years we will have enough information to truly find out who is screwing us?

Or how about we destroy fractional reserve banking and all the grist and easy money that comes from lending it?

Then maybe we will have a few less "illuminati" running around in the usual places?

And we can avoid the phrase (gasp) Anti-Semite.

Some good one-liners.  Truths, insights, and realities that slap you upside the head. 

==========

Fair Trade Fraud: How Congress Pillages the Consumer and Decimates American Competitiveness ...

James Bovard: Here are some epigrams from that 1991 work:

Government cannot make trade more fair by making it less free.

The myth of fair trade is that politicians and bureaucrats are fairer than markets – that government coercion and restriction can create a fairer result than voluntary agreement – and that prosperity is best achieved by arbitrary political manipulation, rather than allowing each individual and company to pursue their own interest.

 

Lost Rights: The Destruction of American Liberty (1994) ...

It is important to have a sounder distinction between democracy and thievery than simply counting votes.

Beggaring the taxpayer is the main achievement of the welfare state. The federal tax system has turned individuals into sharecroppers of their own lives.

A law is simply a reflection of the momentary perception of self-interest by a majority of a legislative body.

Politicians have sought to maximize social progress by maximizing the number of people labeled to be criminals. 

 

Freedom in Chains: The Rise of the State and the Demise of the Citizen (1999) ...

Paternalism is a desperate gamble that lying politicians will honestly care for those who fall under their power.

So much of political philosophy throughout history has consisted of concocting reasons why people have a duty to be tame animals in politicians' cages.

• The surest effect of exalting government is to make it easier for some people to drag others down.

The growth of government is like the spread of a dense jungle, and the average citizen can hack through less of it every year.

• Trusting government nowadays means dividing humanity into two classes: those who can be trusted with power to run other people's lives, and those who cannot even be trusted to run their own lives.

 

Feeling Your Pain: The Explosion and Abuse of Government Power in the Clinton-Gore Years (2001) ...

• Clinton exploited and expanded the dictatorial potential of the US presidency.

The lies that Clinton got away with were far more important than the ones on which he was caught. 

The better that people understand what Clinton did in office, the greater the nation's chances for political recovery.

 

Terrorism and Tyranny: Trampling Freedom, Justice, and Peace to Rid the World of Evil (2003) ...

Nothing happened on 9/11 that made the federal government more trustworthy.

The Patriot Act treats every citizen like a suspected terrorist and every federal agent like a proven angel.

• The worse government fails, the less privacy citizens supposedly deserve. 

• Killing foreigners is no substitute for protecting Americans. 

It is impossible to destroy all alleged enemies of freedom everywhere without also destroying freedom in the United States.

• In the long run, people have more to fear from governments than from terrorists. Terrorists come and go, but power-hungry politicians will always be with us.

Habeas corpus is an insurance policy to prevent governments from going berserk.

 

The Bush Betrayal (2005) ...

We need a constitutional amendment to make the federal government obey the Constitution. 

Neither Washington nor Jefferson ever intended for the President of the United States to become the Torturer-in-Chief.

 

 Attention Deficit Democracy (2006). ...

• Rather than a democracy, we increasingly have an elective dictatorship. People are merely permitted to choose who will violate the laws and the Constitution.

• Bogus fears can produce real servitude.

• As long as rulers are above the law, citizens have the same type of freedom that slaves had on days when their masters chose not to beat them.

James Bovard was born at the right time, possessing the proper talent – a combination of acute intelligence, skeptical humor and investigative discipline. But he is still lucky to be living when he is. It suits his peculiar genius.

The federal tax system has turned individuals into sharecroppers of their own lives.

"One of the greatest detriments to job creation in the US is the overseas income deferral law. This unbelievable gift to transnational corporations is at the heart of free trade, globalization, offshoring and outsourcing. Presently these corporations are sitting on $2.2 trillion in untaxed profits, which is costing the American taxpayer almost $800 billion in lost tax revenue if like in 2006 they are allowed to bring the funds back at 5-1/4% taxation. Those conglomerates want to bring those funds back into the US tax free, which means $1 trillion in lost taxes, taking advantage of the current financial situation in the US. Five years ago Congress passed legislation allowing $350 billion to be returned to the US at 5-1/4% taxation, not the normal 35%, because these corporations said they would use the funds to create jobs. Very few jobs were created and a large part of the funds were used to purchase company stock, which rose in value, allowing the officers of these corporations to sell stock from options and make billions of dollars in profit for themselves. These are the same corporations that have been responsible for the loss of 11.7 million jobs, the loss of good paying jobs 450,000 American companies and the loss of hundreds of billions of dollars in tax revenue."

1776 was a very good year.

A moral people, simply wishing to escape religious, economic and political tyranny, asserted their right to print their own money, and they defied an empire by refusing to pay it tribute in the form of gold.

It was never about tax on tea. It was always about Colonial Script.

All sane & moral people need to re-declare their independence from what has grown into a monstrosity of a multiple headed Lernaean Hydra of tryanny, which attempts to extinguish the inalienable rights of men, women and children the world over, in the quest to harvest more and more of nature's bounty for a smaller and smaller group of criminals that worship false gods, with each passing year.

The FED should be drawn and quartered, then fed to the dogs as their heads sit on pikes in the front of the Mariner Eccles Building, that is to be renamed treason central. Bernanke shold be fed through a wood chipper along with all the worthless currency he has created. 

The people in the streets of NY may not be the best coordinated bunch, they may even be misguided, but they are out there. The rage of the everyman must be felt by the oligarchs. This is the time to show that we will no longer be slaves to manipulations and corruption. Try them for treason and dispose of them fittingly.

I heard two very profound statements the other day:

"There are many? causes I would die for. There is not a single cause I would kill for." ~ Mohandas Gandhi

"Everyone asks the question, 'Would you die for Liberty?' That's not really the right question to ask. The right question to ask is, 'Would you kill for Liberty?' because if you would kill for liberty, it assumes that you would also die for liberty." - Schaeffer Cox

"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants." - Jefferson

The Fed is worried and in self preservation mode, it has huge public relation nightmare because fucked the people to help banks. The most important thing to do is get behind candidate who wants to eliminate Federal Reserve system. Don't waste time and money to arm self against Bernanke.

Recommended reading:  Bernays, Propaganda.
Brenays is widely considered the father of modern Public Relations.  Now, stop and reflect for a moment.  PR.... a tidage more manipulative becomes Perceptions Management.... just like them fuckers being paid by the MIC, Banks, etc, to provide ad homien attacks and plant disinformation in the blogosphere.... then on to it's next level, Propaganda.

All's the fundamentally same process.

Not to mention the public assuming its a pure, downright wholesome Big Brother is Watching You approach.
Now, as someone reasonably knowledgable as to Perceptions Management, actively engaging Hegelian Dialectic experiences, etc., the main flaw within this particular implementation is that it has been made official, public and thus Actively Invites Rebuke and Scepticism. 
Which in turn invites not only such a response to said program, But The Sponsoring Institution in It's Attempt.

Imagine!
A Central Bank actively engaging in Perceptions Management and Propaganda efforts.  Not just "jawboning" as a policy tool, but outright mysterious, dark machinations and manipulations.
Makes people think of the institution as fundmanetally "evil", "disturbing" of "questionable integrity", for it is no longer the policies which are questioned, but indeed, perceptions thereof. 
It is the perceptions thereof which are the indica of the effectiveness of the policy.

Indeed, inmpementing a Perceptions Managemant Program which in fact, destroys the institutions Public's Perception.

Bernays is vomiting in his grave at this unholy catastrophe.

Bernays is vomiting in his grave at this unholy catastrophe.

Good comments Knukles. Thanks. But I doubt Bernays would be anything but thrilled. He was able to convince people that smoking was sexy. Did he know it would kill them? Would that have changed him? My sense of it is that such people are into the game for the sake of getting results. The "unintended consequences" are of no interest to them. They rationalize their work in any number of ways.  The pure 21st century science of mind control or Perceptions Management is fascinating as well as frightening. Madison avenue is proud. Bernays would be too.

 

Now that I look back, I realize that a life predicated on being obedient and taking orders is a very comfortable life indeed. Living in such a way reduces to a minimum one's need to think.
Adolf Eichmann

The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society.

"The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. Not wealth or luxury or long life or happiness: only power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from all the oligarchies of the past, in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just round the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power."

Dude, if this is announced it's already been applied.

Fear what they don't tell you.

Everyone must serve somebody. Ever watch SPOOKS? Government comes and goes but Harry is a constant.

Strive to be Harry.

Miroslav Katava is probably a 30 something wonk working for the NY Fed, living at home with his parents in New Jersey,

living pay check to pay check and cannot even afford to get his own place.  Miroslav thinks he has a GREAT JOB.  Miroslav has no critical thinking skills.

 

This is our problem...the Miroslavs slaving at their computers mindlessly doing their "tasks".....whatever they are.  

Miroslav doesn't understand there's another Miroslav doing the same things to him.... all the while the power-money princes give all their greedy self-enriching orders to the endless line of Miroslavs.

Query:  The Fed is a private entity, right?  Not a governmental entity, right (at least that's what I've been told).  So how is it they can gain access to our private information in the first place?  What law gives them the right to do that?

The RFP reads like it would monitor public communications on social media.  That means the things that people post that is open for the world to see.  We've put our own lives and opinions out for whomever and whatever to compile into dossiers.  

Of course they're taking advantage of that.  We've published our own lives.

To answer your first question, yes, the Fed is a private entity. If you care to know who owns the Fed, here is an org chart. It was published in 1976 but it hasn't changed any, as far as I know:

To answer your question of what law gives them the right, laws don't give rights, as a rule, they limit them. There is no law saying the Fed can't gather this information from public forums. It's available to anyone who has the means to gather it.

Greened for defending actual freedom.

Any one of us can collect information from public forums, even the FED.  We don't have to like it, and we don't have to cater to them.  What we can't actually do is stop them- short of making sites like ZH a paid subscription service with background checks and a bulletproof contract that expressly prohibits data collection.  Even then, the burden of proof would be on the Tylers, and it's just not worth doing.  These forums are free to all- even the asshats.

So, do what you can with the reality of the situation- and that reality is that they are opening up a mic for us to collectively speak to them.  The most likely result is that they might change the tone of thier press conferences, adding a little more "explanation" that will more more bullshit, and maybe start an ad campaign to improve their image.

Real change won't come from this- not on the FED's end, and not on our end, either.  We can't just get scared and start yelling about how there oughta be a law...

I'm in - The FED! The FED! 

I'd really like to hear Bernankes answer to the question "Whom do you serve ? ". That would end the Fed . Moneychangers that won't pay a dime in interest . This is not only treason against American savers , but unbiblical in principle . All to serve the um.. urf.. TBTF Banks .

Wow the Globe and Mail is up to their garbage again, David Berman a so called "Journalist" writes a pure hit piece on Gold. It is laughable to say the least, and utterly filled with holes. You can see this nonsense linked:

When clowns like this start touting Gold, that is your que to get out of dodge!

If they have gotten to the point they are announcing it publicly that means they already have something 10x scarier tracking us right now
the government continues to find ways to make me realize how idiotic they are or do they want to be seen that way....you mean we don't have a contingency plan for falling satelites?  deepwater oil wells?  hijacked planes? etc.....I find it hard to believe they would even ask our permission to monitor the interwebs....oh and doesn't everyone have a little window to the internet in their pocket 24/7.  They don't need RFID chips.

I'm ready for anything now that I own Amelia's flying goggles.

Do you think he has a stinkin' badge? Is he aware of the short position that the MMs put into place on Thor's Day? Are we all gonna receive cat tuna coupons with our social security checks? If I build hotels on Marvin Gardens and St.Charles will I be spared the wrath of Keynesian stupidity that this man is inflicting on America?

No need for re-education camps, the premise of a "listening platform' is to contol the communication. There will be no dissenters, you will be smothered in wave, after wave of fed paid blog trolls and bots, deriding and derailing any attempt at conversation or consensus.

People may need to meet face to face, resistance may need to be wide spread civil disobedience. The goal of the fed is to supresss reality and continue economic propaganda. The recent stock market gyrations imply they have lost control of the dialogue - they are desperate to maintain the status quo, constitution be damned.
