Irish Journalist Vincent Browne Vs. The ECB: "Explain Why The Irish People Have To Bailout Billionaire Bondholders!"

Flashback Video - European Central Bank Press Conference in Ireland - Jan. 19, 2012

This is outstanding.  If you're rushed for time, just watch the final 90 seconds.  Irish Journalist Vincent Browne shows the ECB how they roll in Eirinn.  The ECB's Klaus Masuch gets a well-deserved earful.

Memo to Erin Burnett - This is how one demonstrates journalistic integrity.

ECB reply: "You have to bailout billionaire bondholders because you are the unwashed, our mindless, spineless bitches. What are you going to do about it?"

The FBI snoops on "individuals who have demonstrated support for or interest in WikiLeaks."


Congratulations, DB. Now we can tell our grandchildren that we made the "naughty list" -- for saying nice things about Wikileaks (and not-so-nice things about Eric Holder).

What keeps people from rising up and removing the bankers?

If only we had a journalist with such balls on this side of the pond.

What keeps people from rising up and removing the bankers?


Hmm, let's see.

Cable TV


Minutia of daily lives

Not knowing exactly how to revolt

Corporate media telling us that bailouts saved the system and were good for us

What else?

Ireland swallowed a load of banker bunk and is choking back to reality.

First you ask why you owe because the banks lost their bets and next you wonder why banks control your sovereign coin.

When you begin to wonder how charging interest on a national treasure makes sense, then you can hope for survival.

Isn't 2012 too late to figure it out? I hope not.

I think the question wasn't smart enough. The reporter should have anticipated that the speaker would have said something squirrel y, as he did. Yes, the cost benefit ratio was calculated and it seemed best to have the Irish pay up, than not.

I suspect there are questions to be formulated that would reveal more of the real story behind this act of extortion. So, if it is a matter of costs and benefits, one could have asked the speaker to clarify what the costs would have been if the Irish people did not bail out these non-secured bonds held by the foreign banks. Would there have been some effort by the banks to make the Irish economy "scream" much as the U.S. government wants to make the economies it extorts "scream," ..making the people suffer so much they force changes in their government's policies.

That's called "terrorism," but I digress.

Or, the reporter could have pointed out that if there was no way to not bail out these banks at present, it therefore seems that there will be no time or situation in the future when the Irish people will be able to refuse to pay up to some other bank or financial institution that might want to put pressure on them in the future.

Or, the reporter could have pointed out that a "cost-benefit analysis" of the situation where it seemed best to the government to have the Irish people pay up is really nothing more than extortion, and legally then, is not a legal transaction, and so the Irish should not be legally forced to make any such payments? Isn't there an international court where this case could be made? Ask the speaker that question.

If this theft from the Irish people will make the taxi driver, and most other Irish, indentured servants to these foreign banks, and people have a right to free themselves from such slavery, then isn't the speaker, who defends such servitude, someone who should be arrested right there on the spot. Ask the speaker that question.
