A former vice president for Citigroup pleaded guilty Tuesday to embezzling more than $22 million from the company and funneling the money to his personal bank account.

"We the People" should Bow to our Owners! JP Morgan and friends!!
yea but he was a jew so it's really just the jews fault, not bankers.
And to stimulate the ailing financial sector, he should propose a policy banning withdrawals at banks.
First rule of embezzlement: "pay yourself."
more punting before the football game actually starts. wonderful!!!!!!!!!!!!
Little has come out of the entire Obama presidency, why should we expect different now?
The Decepticrats and Obamatron REALLY expect the Republicons to just hand them the swiped-out credit card ONE MORE TIME??
Even my 25-year-old Daughter knows better than these Idjuts!
Obama is a 'jobs creator'....since returning from vacation, Michelle has added 15 people to her staff.
Do you suppose that he will extend the Bush/Obama tax cuts for the job creators?
what he is going to do is provide stimului to the states...translated...fill state and union pension funds...and raise revenue...translated....fuck the stupid fucking sheep to pay for it....i thought slavery was abolished...irony at its best..
mr. bernank, it's mr. mugabe on the line.
Why is SLV not following the price of Silver anymore?
Not sure what you mean. At this level, SLV is about $1 less than silver.
SLV=$40.53, silver ~$41.50
The higher silver goes, the more they diverge. It was a 25cent difference back around $15
Okay, anyone shorting into the close today?
Should be a up day tomorrow
Want a false flag option?
Obama get 'em all in the chamber and just has a minion roll in a canister of VX.
I would venture a bet. Tomorrow, the stock market will shoot up another 200 points after Obama talks. It is like cheer leading by the HFT. The programs are set to push things up. An attempt to rally his approval rating. Same thing happen to Ben Bernanke speech earlier. Let the machine push the market up to portrait a great leader with great economy going....
That scenario would only be true if the clock runs backwards tomorrow.
(folly) A costly undertaking having an absurd or ruinous outcome.
Oil just hit $116, and WTI futures $90.
How's this gonna play in Peoria?
One does wonder if these Bozos realize oil maxed at $125 in Spring and it's now less than $10 from there.
Behold the post Peak world. If you try to grow, demand will spike the price and smash your growth. And each 6 month cycle will get worse and worse.
Hush. I am making a profit.
yeah, when I forecasted this a few years ago over on peak-denier TF, it didn't go over well. But it's the reality. The overhead supply curve is like a roof that keeps coming down lower and lower, like in Indiana Jones. And at every bit of breathing room due to crashes, it just cinches tighter and tighter. There's no respite, nor will there be until/unless fusion power is developed.
The problem is that the powers have no fucking clue what needs to be done or how. They continue in their echo chamber of belief that things must continue the way they have been.
Mark my words: the nations will destroy the oil companies for "gouging" before they will admit that the 400 year paradigm is OVER, outmoded, and obsolete. And, every step these idiots take will only make things worse.
We stand a real chance here of being past PSR in terms of the capital expenditure necessary to make a quantum leap, if such a thing is even possible.
Holy makeel, dey am jivin' wit dat S&P Five Hunnert agin.
$300b of stimulus would bring up the date when the debt ceiling would be reached to before the 2012 elections.
Obama doesn't want that. He's only proposing this because he knows it won't pass.
That . . . is a very good point.
He can't possibly have this pass or he busts the ceiling early.
exactly............this is purely a campaign tactic, that is why the repubs will not reply, they know it is a trap to make them look like they are the ones creating all the problems by shooting down all of the dems idea's..........very smart to not rebutt, ignoring is brilliant as it makes obama look weak(er)
Boy JPM sure went out on a limb with this prediction.
Yep, must be why they get the big bailouts.
Everybody is saying this is going to be a Nothing. Expectations are decimated. Propaganda 101.
In reality, it will become one of the biggest permanent federal expenditures ever created.
Would the Grand Old Party be so cynical as to agree to extend unemployment simply so that we can get a more accurate count of the unemployed? Say for example they extend it to 200 weeks and allow anyone who got pushed off the rolls to get back on. Unemployment might jump to 14% the following week and stay there through November 2012. As a purely political ploy, the request could be used against him. A 'be careful what you wish for' moment?
could it be, that Obama will announce
Homeland Investment Act Part 2 ?
Serious question to zerohedgers.
I bet the market goes down, and PMs go up after this speech, which I'll be skipping. I'd rather go Christmas-fishing with Scott Peterson than listen to Obummer.
"...The Obama Jobs Plan is taking shape, another gutless errant ineffective exercise in stupidity, futility, and misdirection. Prepare for an annual $2 trillion federal deficit, as all engines for austerity and budget cuts will be abandoned in a bold reversal to address an emergency. The Gold price will zoom past $2000 per ounce when it becomes crystal clear that more USGovt stimulus and spending is next, not less. Ironically, watch the $2 trillion budget deficit go hand in hand with the $2000 gold price arrival. The United States will be last to enact austerity. Heck, the Standard & Poors debt downgrade has been relegated to the back pages. Its ratings agency Chairman has been replaced by a Citigroup executive, the bandaid applied. If truth be told, the USGovt has already exceeded the new debt limit in violation."...

Any bets on how long until Standard & Poors upgrades the US??? My bet is that it'll occur before the election.
He's just going to propose the $300B... it's just to restart his dialog bashing the GOP for not cooperating and working together and finding common ground and reaching across the aisle or any of the other ways of saying "We want compromise, that is you do all the compromising and we'll get our way."
As one of the inner circle i just got my advanced copy (as in before all of you) and it looks pretty amazing. The title is "moonraking our way to jobs" and goes into great detail about how "the first trillion will be for the bases on the moon that will get us to mars." "and that's just for starters!" it says. I'M EXCITED!
"to a point in time when household sector balance sheet repair has hopefully progressed enough that the private sector can generate self-sustaining growth momentum."
This is what every Keynesian nut doesn't get. I really think that they think that the debt somehow goes away while they sleep at night. They better look somewhere other than the household to get us out of this one. Our economy is likened to a world class athlete with constipation beyond belief. It can't perform until 70% of the bad debt is unclogged from the system.
"We Anticipate That Little Will Come Out Of It""
I bet the US government wishes they had another Osama Bin Laden to whip the proles into a fervor for another decade, or two--if they engineer this one bigger and better than the last one.
Imagine all of the cost-plus goodness that'll come of it once they can pretty up another emmanuel goldstein for the 2-mi--er--decades hate.
Only way we're gonna "recover" is if we have some manufactured great evil to fight.
Orwellian future, coming right up!!!
I personally am sick and fucking tired of 911. We are coming up on 10 years and the orgy is restarting. Fucking tribute fund or some kind of "learn how YOU can help the 911 families." WTF? They are all MILLIONAIRES; they got paid ASININE money by the Fedgov for being victims or survivors or wtfever they were, a bunch of useless crying bitches. Anyone who could spell 911 is expecting to be heard and they wanted WTC shut down forever as a memorial to their stupid dead "loved ones." Fuck off. We killed 20x this many people in Hiroshima and they didn't turn the effing city into a goddamned shrine to LOSING.
America is a nation of losers who see virtue in being a victim.
Thank god for Physical Silver charts. Keeps me away from Obama and his Morale stripping, time wasting and double talk that serves no one.
I wish anyone who wants to be the next POTUS to sit down in the Oval Office and work as they were hired to do by the people. If something bad happens, then we will want to hear from POTUS.
If POTUS is gone there is a number of People in line to run the Nation in really bad times. It is likely we will see these people and say, who is that?
I am so sick of that dumb fuck Obama. It's like watching an idiot dog chase its tail. Only difference is our dog (named Dumb-fuck) can't be shot, and costs the US hundreds of billions everytime it plays this stupid game.
Case in point- Healthcare.
'Dumb-fuck' jams healthcare legislation down business' throat. Businesses don't know the cost and potential liability they have if they hire an employee. So, they don't hire. Now, 'Dumb-fuck' comes along, humps Uncle Warren's leg, and creates a 'Jobs Plan' for another $300 billion.
What the hell happened to the ARRA money? That was just shy of $800 billion. How much employment did that create? Jack-shit. Dumb-fuck wasted that too.
