Norm Coleman…Minnesota’s own Windsock strikes again!

Leave a comment

As usual, Coleman sides right in with the Bush administration and the neo-cons.  Here in Minnesota we are so hoping that someone offers him a job that he can’t refuse in one of these corporations he is so worried about.  Maybe they will…he could be their pet weasel.  Marti

 

Senator Coleman outlined his concerns about the crisis in his floor speech on Friday.  Text of the speech is available online:http://coleman.senate.gov/public/index.cfm?FuseAction=PressReleases.Detail&PressRelease_id=a0e0874a-c78d-fa07-94e4-bac270f21855

 

STATEMENT FROM SENATOR NORM COLEMAN ON HOUSE VOTE OF FINANCIAL STABILIZATION PLAN

 

September 29th, 2008 – Washington, D.C. – “Failure to address the financial crisis is not an option. Capital is the lifeblood of our financial system, and today that system is in danger of a complete meltdown. This crisis touches each and every Minnesotan. Jobs, retirement savings, and access to credit are all at stake. We must try again – these are times that call for statesmanship, not partisanship. I remain hopeful that we can act on a bipartisan compromise that addresses the crisis while at the same time protecting taxpayers and holding Wall Street accountable. We are facing an unprecedented financial crisis, and all of us, Democrats and Republicans, Congress and the Administration, must find a way forward for Minnesota families and our economy. Now is the time for action and I am hopeful that we can come together and pass a package that will have real reform – no golden parachutes, no blank check, and above all, protect the American taxpayer. We must have real results that will stabilize our financial markets and return liquidity to the system.”

 

STATEMENT FROM SENATOR NORM COLEMAN ON THE PRESIDENT’S SPEECH ON THE ECONOMY

 

September 24th, 2008 – Washington, D.C. – “The challenges we face today are as serious as any I’ve faced in my 32 years of public service. Today, with our nation’s economic security on the line, we must put aside partisan politics and stick to the statesmanship and bipartisanship that we will need to weather this financial ‘perfect storm.’ Outright greed and mismanagement, coupled with an outdated financial regulatory system, have brought us to this point. Our obligation now, as Americans, not as Democrats or Republicans, is to come together and do the right thing, and to do it now. There will be no blank checks, no golden parachutes and no excessive executive compensation packages for Wall Street executives. The President has made it clear that this is a time of immense risk to our nation’s economic future, and we must rise to the challenge and meet it head on.”

Bailout Scare Tactics….lies and more lies

Leave a comment

The Big Lie is promoting the Big Scare.

 

There is not going to be any Depression. What there will be if this trillion dollar bailout is massive inflation caused by the government paying this bailout by printing money.

 

These obligations are owned by private companies, they should stay there, the companies can go bankrupt or not, but they can be liquidated at whatever the market value is.  The loss will fall on the private companies, their shareholders and their bond holders, not on the American people.

 

If you have the number of your Congressman or Senator, give him or her a call. This is welfare for the rich.

The collapse of the US dollar: Controlled demolition?

Leave a comment

Commentary before the bailouts

Jim Rogers has made hundreds of millions of dollars from his investments over the years.

Last year, he made the decision to leave the US and take his money out of the US dollar.

At the time, it seemed like an extreme position to take.

Now, months later, it’s starting to make sense.

Max Keiser holds an even more extreme position, that what’s taking place is a controlled demolition of the US dollar. It’s hard to argue with his logic.

After all, these are the same people who brought us 9/11 and the Iraq War. What’s a multi-trillion dollar scam compared to those twin disasters?

 

If you watch the financial news, occasionally you’ll hear Jim Rogers explain why Fed bailouts of investment banks and others is a terrible idea for the country.

 

It’s amazing to hear his comments from March and July of this year.

 

He really nailed it.

 

Is anyone listening?

 

Maybe Bush & Co. actually want to destroy the US dollar and tank the world economy.

 

If so, they’re doing a great job.

Market meltdown? An early plea for investment banker welfare…BRASSCHECK TV/video

Leave a comment

Posted in August 2007
One year ago

Jim Cramer, a popular financial program TV host in the US, had a bit of a breakdown on camera last year (August 2007)Because he made his reputation by histrionics and grandstanding, it didn’t hurt him among his audience.

Cramer claimed to be concerned for the fate of millions of Americans who were saddled with predatory real estate loans in recent years.

Maybe he actually cares about the thousands of home owners who will be hurt by this insanity. Maybe.

But clearly, the folks that Cramer demonstrated real concern for in this tirade were his friends who work for hedge funds and investment banks: “People are losing their jobs!” he cried.

Pardon me if I don’t shed a tear for the crooks who’ve collected seven figure bonuses each year for turning our financial system into a casino.

Here’s what I have to say to the bankers who are crying now:

“You put it all on red and it came up black. Tough shit. Stop sniveling from the back of your limousines and houses in the hedge funds, KramerHamptons and get a life.

Why should the people who actually work for a living and add real value to the economy reduce their already-reduced standard of living further to bail you out?”

 

 

It’s enlightening to go back and see what various analysts had to

say when the sub prime mess first started unraveling. 

 

Here’s a clip from more than a full year ago.

 

It features a popular TV stock picker flipping out on live TV as he describes the mayhem going on behind the scenes on Wall Street.

 

http://www.brasschecktv.com/page/132.html

 

His solution – because he’s from the investment banking world – was a bailout for his friends at the big banks. 

 

And that’s what this is all about.

 

As Jim Rogers pointed out in yesterday’s video, the US financial system has already been trashed. That horse is out of the barn.

There’s no “fixing” it.  Either nature will be allowed to take its course (painful as that may be)

 

Or

 

The US Treasury will dump trillions of dollars into the economy to ease the transition for Wall Street billionaires at taxpayer expense – and at the expense of the long term prospects of the US economy. 

 

Anyway, here’s a former investment banker and current stock market cheerleader wailing and gnashing his teeth on behalf of his Wall Street buddies a year ago when it became clear that the jig was up:

This is how they managed the Iraq War billions….BRASSCHECK TV/video

Leave a comment

Can you imagine the scope and scale of the theft that will take place with the bank bailouts?

For four generations now, the Bush family has been involved in supporting the country’s enemies (most notably the Nazi Party in Germany) and robbing the country blind.

The family was directly involved and profited from the Savings and Loan scandal of the 1980s and has participated in security fraud as well.

With this understanding as a background, the Iraq War can be viewed as their “masterpiece.”

The Bush family and its associates have stolen countless billions of dollars in the course of the war. In fact, one of their motivations for pushing the war in the first place was the opportunity for theft.

Chances are the destruction of World Trade Tower Seven, the home of crucial and now lost forever SEC and other federal law enforcement evidence and case files was carried out to cover their tracks.

Why isn’t the news media pointing out that the last time we had a banking system collapse that enriched a bunch of crooks, a Bush was in the White House running the show?

 

Oversight…

 

While US politicians try to figure out how to deploy a multi-trillion dollar slush fund to bail out their friends on Wall Street, there’s another ongoing multi-trillion dollar disaster still unresolved.      The Iraq War.

 

McCain says we may need to be there another 100 years.

 

Here’s how oversight is working there:

P.S. Have you noticed how the cost of the Iraq war is not a media issue?

 

Instead they’re focused entirely on greasing the wheels for the latest multi-trillion dollar scam.

 

Please share Brasscheck e-mails and videos with your friends and colleagues so they can get the full picture of what’s going on.

Bailout to be attached to non-related legislation in the Senate

Leave a comment

Bailout to be attached to non-related legislation

 

As reported in mainstream media all evening, the Senate is preparing to attach the bailout legislation to some other piece of non-related drivel.  The Senate has announced that it will vote Wednesday evening to pass the bailout plan as an attachment to a non-related bill without waiting for the House to attempt to pass a revised bill.

 

This maneuver is the reason that all legislation ends its title with the phrase, “and for other purposes”.  This is a signal to you, to the body voting and to the government that non-related items such as earmarks, assaults on civil liberties and expansion of powers not granted in the constitution, are contained in the bill. 

 

In this particular piece of theft by the government of the people’s wealth, the Senate will find a bill that most likely contains needed funding for some unrelated program, and will attach the bailout bill to it. 

 

Congress as a whole is so detached from the people it claims to represent, it never occurred to them that all the threats and scenarios posited as possibilities if this bailout was not passed, would be taken with a grain of salt.  Washington has cried wolf so many times in these last years and many of us have come to realize that the wolf is hiding under our flag.

 

We have endured eight years of one created crisis after another under this administration and the neo-cons.  We have been told repeatedly that if we did not act swiftly and immediately…. untold horrors would befall us all.  And we went along with all of it only to find out that the horrors we would endure would emanate from our own government.

 

I feel as though the American people are being driven to revolt.  Maybe that is what they have been after all along.  Then this dolt in the Oval Office could declare a national emergency and martial law. 

 

Get on those phones, faxes and emails.  Let your Senators know in no uncertain terms that you do not support the bailout, and demand that they represent the people and not the corporations that have corrupted their system.

 

I have no sympathy for these greedy, unethical and corrupt institutions…..even a dog knows better than to crap where it eats.
