Geithner may be thrown under the bus as financial terrorists continue to profit

Bankergate: Emails Expose Criminal Financial Dictatorship At Work 110110GeithnerExplosive emails released last week could see Treasury secretary Timothy Geithner become embroiled in criminal charges for his role in a cover up that exposes the monumental criminality behind the $182.3 billion bailout of American International Group Inc.

In November and December 2008, The Federal Reserve Bank of New York instructed the bailed out AIG to hide from the public details regarding payments the insurance giant made to banks, including Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Societe Generale SA.

Using Fed secured taxpayer bailout money, AIG paid several banks 100 percent of the face value of credit-default swaps, as other financial institutions were negotiating deep discounts for the unregulated paper assets that do not have to be backed by cash.

The decision to pay the banks in full may have cost AIG, and therefore taxpayers, at least $13 billion over the odds.

The “backdoor bailout” of the banks, as it has been dubbed was exposed in March 2009 after the SEC challenged AIG’s filing, however, e-mails obtained by Representative Darrell Issa, ranking member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, have re ignited the situation as they conclusively expose a collusion between AIG and the Fed to deceive the public.

The e-mails between company and regulator, released last Thursday, show that The New York Fed crossed out reference to the payments and that AIG also omitted the details when the Securities and Exchange Commission filing was made public on Dec. 24, 2008.

The emails, the content of which are highlighted in this Bloomberg News article, also show that the Fed wanted numerous other details about the AIG bailout withheld or delayed from public oversight.

“It appears that the New York Fed deliberately pressured AIG to restrict and delay the disclosure of important information,” said Issa, a California Republican. Taxpayers “deserve full and complete disclosure under our nation’s securities laws, not the withholding of politically inconvenient information.”

Despite denials from the Treasury and the New York Fed that Geithner was involved in the scandal, as the President of the New York Fed at the time, his head now rests firmly on the chopping block where he awaits his fate.

Issa is seeking more information from the New York Fed on the matter, following the statements of general counsel Thomas Baxter, who declared in a letter in defense of Geithner Friday “In my judgment, as the New York Fed’s chief legal officer, disclosure matters of this nature did not warrant the attention of the president.”

“It’s a staggering admission by Mr. Baxter that he felt strong enough that Secretary Geithner wanted him to limit AIG’s disclosures on counterparty payments to the SEC that he says he didn’t even feel a need to bring the details to his boss’ attention,” Issa said in a statement. “This letter raises more questions on the inner-workings of the New York Fed during one of the most pivotal periods in our nation’s history.”

Geithner’s extensive connections to Goldman Sachs also raise serious questions, given that the investment bank directly profited from the AIG payments.

Geithner’s predecessor and Treasury Secretary at the time all of this unfolded, Hank Paulson, also once served as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer for Goldman Sachs, after working for the firm for decades.

Paulson rammed through the bailout of AIG with threats of financial armageddon and physical martial law, claiming he “felt the pain of AIG”, comments for which he was slammed by Republican Congressman Cliff Stearns earlier this year.

AIG’s outstanding debts to Goldman Sachs meant that $13 billion of the money handed over to AIG by Paulson went directly to Goldman Sachs.

Meanwhile, Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers — both investment banks in direct competition with Goldman Sachs — were not bailed out when bad debt forced them to cease operating under the same circumstances as AIG.

Congressman Stearns pressed Paulson on his conflicts of interest, stating, “Isn’t there some point where you say hey, I’ve got a conflict of interest here, you don’t feel any kind of scintilla of ethics on this thing at all?” Paulson responded by claiming that he got a waiver from the ethics agreement.

Paulson’s appointment, at the height of the financial crisis, of ex-Goldman Sachs executive Neel Kashkari to oversee the distribution of bailout monies also highlights the vast conflict of interest surrounding this scandal.

As the New York Times reported earlier this year, Goldman Sachs effectively bailed itself out. Since that time the bank has been making record profits on trading and now completely dominates the program trading market.

This blatantly criminal activity has led to Goldman being labeled “Financial Terrorists” by analysts. Even Rolling Stone magazine has exposed Goldman Sachs’ persistent role in steering and manipulating the economy over the last century.

At the time of the bailout we warned that the so called financial saviours represented nothing more than the old guard of the corporate elite, the very people responsible for the financial crisis in the first instance.

Judge Andrew Napolitano, appearing on Shepard Smith’s Fox News show last week, stated that he believes Geithner could face a criminal probe:

Barney Frank, a Massachusetts Democrat and chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, said the e-mail exchanges were “troubling” and that he plans to hold congressional hearings on the matter.

Mobilize Now to Oust Bernanke as Fed Chair

In the aftermath of the Massachusetts Senate vote last Tuesday, we now have a concrete fighting chance to block the reappointment of Wall Street puppet Ben Bernanke as the chairman of the Federal Reserve Board of Governors by preventing his Senate confirmation next week. This afternoon, Bernanke’s support was eroding hour by hour. The defections from the Bernanke camp feature Democratic senators who are up for reelection this coming November. They have read the tea leaves from Massachusetts, and they know the pitchforks are out, so their response is a mad rush to acquire economic populist and anti-Wall Street cover. The obvious way to do this is to turn against Bernanke and defeat him in the upcoming confirmation vote. Leading the charge late today were Senator Barbara Boxer of California and Russ Feingold of Wisconsin, both endangered Democrats. GOP Senator Corker of Tennessee is now waffling about whether or not he will support Bernanke. The pressure is building on self-styled Democratic economic populists like Sherrod Brown of Ohio to prove that they are worth something. What will Senator-elect Scott Brown do? If he votes for Bernanke, he will have betrayed his voters in less than a week, and will not survive his own re-election campaign in 3 years. Democratic majority leader Harry Reid, succumbing to overwhelming pressure from the Obama White House, announced late this afternoon that he will fall on his sword for Helicopter Ben, but this self-destructive pledge may not survive a weekend in Nevada, where the economic populist pitchforks are as finely honed as anywhere. It is therefore time for all responsible citizens and all persons of good will to mobilize in the days ahead to secure the defeat of Bernanke. Such an event would symbolize the turn of the tide against Wall Street in the struggle to decide who will pay for the current depression — the people or the bankers and hedge fund hyenas.

We stress that this is a battle which can be won. Two senators, Bunning of Kentucky and Bernie Sanders of Vermont, have placed holds on the Bernanke nomination. This means that a supermajority of 60 votes will be required to bring Helicopter Ben’s nomination to the Senate floor. As of now, no one can know whether these votes will be forthcoming. Republicans have little reason to favor Bernanke over their own careers. The Obama White House, despite its most recent efforts to re-create a populist persona for the chief executive, is foolishly supporting Bernanke — a move which undermines all other economic populist posturing Obama might engage in. Individual Democrats, especially those facing the hour of truth in November, know very well how much Bernanke and his Federal Reserve elitists are hated by Americans. For the moment, this game is therefore out of control and highly vulnerable to the application of mass-based political pressure. If Bernanke can be defeated, the Wall Street-Federal Reserve lockstep will be momentarily broken, and the path to auditing the Fed and, more importantly, nationalizing it as a bureau of the Treasury will be wide open.

Late this afternoon, pro-financier spokesmen on Bloomberg and CNBC were talking about a scenario in which Bernanke would remain no matter what as chairman of the Federal Open Market Committee, the unconstitutional body which sets interest rates in accordance with the wishes of the privately owned Federal Reserve districts, above all the New York one. In this scenario, Donald Kohn, the current Fed Vice Chairman, would take Bernanke’s place as the Chairman of the Board of Governors. Kohn, it will be remembered, is just as odious as Bernanke. About a year ago, Kohn’s impudence, arrogance and elitism were highlighted during a Senate hearing when he indignantly refused to reveal the names of the AIG derivatives counterparties who were receiving some $70 billion of US taxpayer money in return for their worthless and toxic financial derivatives. If Bernanke and Kohn should attempts to maintain their power over the Federal Reserve, meaning in practice short-term interest rates in this country, they will create laboratory conditions for a massive economic populist revolt which could well lead to the seizure and nationalization of the Federal Reserve as a bureau of the US Treasury and a public utility to provide 0% credit for production in the interests of the American people. That would put an end to almost a century of financial insurrection by the Wall Street financiers and their puppets against the Constitution — a blatant illegality which goes back to the days of Woodrow Wilson.

All opponents of the illegal, unconstitutional, and failed Federal Reserve system must now realize that this is the hour of action. It is time for every serious intelligent person to send two e-mails and place two phone calls to the Washington and local offices of their senators demanding that they stop Bernanke. Obama should also be warned that Bernanke is an insult to the American people. Those who have been complaining about the Fed for decades now have a real chance to do something about it. These chances are very rare, but this is the best one in many, many decades. Even Paul Adolph Volcker, who had been responsible for an obscene 22% prime rate three decades ago, had an easier time getting reconfirmed than Bernanke. Once Bernanke has been defeated, it will be time to secure the ouster of Treasury Secretary Geithner, the former head of the New York Fed and currently the most visible member of the entire Obama cabinet. The basic outlines of a criminal indictment for Geithner on tax fraud and securities fraud can be culled from virtually any daily newspaper. Geithner ought to be accompanied on his trip home by White House economic czar Larry Summers, the woman-hating former president of Harvard who managed to destroy about a third of the Harvard endowment as a result of his fanatical devotion to the riskiest of financial derivatives. This and more will be within our reach if Bernanke can be checkmated over the next week or two.

Did you know that the Federal Reserve (FED) is a private, for-profit organization?

Did you know that the U.S. Government permits the FED to create money out of thin air – with no gold backing?

Did you know that the FED loans the money to the U.S. Government WITH INTEREST? (This interest makes up the Federal Debt)

Have you wondered why the U.S. Government does not print the money itself and eliminate paying interest to the private for-profit FED?

Did you know that 1999 payments to the private FED totaled $1,703,000,000,000? That is over $36 million dollars per hour!

Do you realize that because of the above, the children, grand children, great grand children and great, great grandchildren of the FED owners will NEVER have to work a day in their lives while you work 12 hours a day just to make ends meet?

Did you know that on January 15, 1984 the Grace Commission (a private sector, blue ribbon committee requested by President Ronald Regan) found that “100 percent of what is collected is absorbed SOLELY by interest on the Federal Debt�.all individual Income Tax revenues are gone before one nickel is spent on the service taxpayers EXPECT FROM GOVERNMENT!”

Did you know that President John F. Kennedy started creating United States dollars to replace the Federal Reserve dollars shortly before he was assassinated?

Did you know that in 1933 under Executive Order Number (6073) then President F.D. Roosevelt made it illegal for anyone to own or trade gold (Except Federal Reserve Banks) with jail and large fines for those that did not give up their gold? That executive order was only applicable in federal possessions and territories. The People were simply too na�ve to know that back then.

Would you be surprised to know that, based on the income of many homeowners, if you were able to keep the amount of tax withheld from you annually, this tax savings would equal the equivalent of 40 acres and a mule in only two years?

DO YOU CARE?
