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.

"Anglerfishes are members of the teleost order Lophiiformes (pronounced /?l??fi???f?rmi?z/).[1] They are bony fishes named for their characteristic mode of predation, wherein a fleshy growth from the fish's head (the esca or illicium) acts as a lure; this is considered analogous to angling."

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."
