Senators Say Bernanke Promises Fed Won't Bailout Europe

SOURCE - WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) - Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke told Senate Republicans in a closed-door meeting Wednesday that he has no plans to bail out Europe, according a report on WSJ.com quoting Sen. Bob Corker, a Republican from Tennessee, who attended the meeting. "I think people walked away knowing he has no intentions whatsoever of furthering U.S. involvement in the crisis," Corker told reporters after the briefing. Bernanke also told lawmakers that the U.S. economy can be hit if Europe starts to unravel, said Sen. Mike Johanns, a Republican from Nebraska. Sen. Richard Shelby, the Republican chairman of the Senate Banking committee, said that the Fed chairman spoke with some candor about the crisis. "The situation is bleak," Shelby said.

Just a quick note about my disappearance. All is well. I simply found that 2 weeks wasn't enough time to decompress. I am back on the beat starting this evening. I hope everyone is doing well.

No more bailouts for any of these maginificent bastards.

This fax went out today.


Relative to Senator Moura's complaint to the Dept of The Treasury below regarding the jerks at Wells Fargo....


This wacko - from the "Office of the President of Wells Fargo" (woo-hoo sounds important!) Shari Ruber had the balls to suggest a legislator was abusing her title for calling the pricks out.

Here's Shari's direct line. Give her a call! 515-324-6987

Promises. promises. It's too late for plausible deniability. There was that recent $600 Billion deal with Europe that was announced. On top of that, there is all of that debt swap activity that the Fed was in, up to Ben Bernanke's eyeballs. But then, can you believe anything that comes out of Congress?

I don't believe these senators either, just like I don't believe they have a right to make any laws after S. 1867 (the indefinite detention without trial law)...same goes for the House O' Representin' (for the same reason)

("But then, can you believe anything that comes out of Congress?")

Absolutely not!
But then I don't think the Chinese are going to loan us any more cash and like Ron Paul says we are bankrupt. So unless Bernanke is going print a few more trainloads of worthless paper the fat lady has sung and he's done dancing.

Professor Bill Black on using the RICO Act to Prosecute Banks and Corrupt Politicians. The question everyone wants to know, why hasn't anyone been prosecuted for all of the "Fraud"? The link below will show Bill Black with Dylan Ratigan speaking of the same information another attorney took using the RICO Act, Former U. S. Prosecutor Richard I. Fine, Ph.D. The result are in the links below in a Series from Full Disclosure.Net (www.fulldisclosure.net) The ongoing struggle for Dr. Fine is very real, current and undisputed.

The links are in order as described. It's well worth everyones time. It is appropriately named "The cost of courage."

P.S. Merry Christmas to everyone at the DB.

Bernanke's 100% error rate on his version of the future (home prices won't decline on a nationwide basis; subprime will be contained) is as good as a crystal ball.

So when he says the U.S. won't ball out Europe, that means the U.S. bailout of Europe with American cash has already started. Like the Fed's $7.7 trillion dollar "loan" degenerate Wall Street gamblers in late 2008--information that was dislodged only weeks ago--the outrage of this bailout won't emerge until much later, say, after another 8 million American workers have been jettisoned from the labor force to prop up headline unemployment.

And how will the puppet-in-chief react to this inevitable disclosure? "We must look forward for solutions," i.e., not to the past for justice.

Eventually the lipstick veneer of TV will fail to conceal the stench of reality, which is rape as official policy.

Thursday, Dec. 15th, 2011 – Today starts out with a PSA. You’ve all seen it before. Picture two eggs, sunny side up, sizzling in a skillet. This is your brain, on fiat currency. The currency is an excitotoxin. It stimulates the nerves. Everything looks and tastes better, but the currency itself is not food, has no nutritional value., and has debilitating side effects. Fiat currency is like MSG. It makes salad look better and gives the taste buds that “zing”. Never mind that MSG has caused brain lesions and tumors in laboratory mice. After decades of using MSG, we have the strange maladies that no official explanation seems to address. As with the side effects that government won’t talk about, so it is with fiat currency.

The world is now delirious with those side effects. The disorientation and confused perception that we read in the news is getting more extreme in it’s mood swings. The only way to survive this is to stop ingesting the fiat currency. It demands explanation for how wrong monetary policy can be, about maintaining viable currencies. The historical explanation is that fiat currencies are a fabrication that always ends in failure. Ben Bernanke should just admit that Federal Reserve notes are not money.

I would NOT trust this even if Bernanke made a public announcement. The banking cartel's reach knows not of such arcane concepts as borders or sovereignty...it is already global and it will do whatever it needs to do to protect itself...even to the failure of the world's interlinked economies.

How can anyone trust a sociopathic private entity with a congressional mandate to create as much money as it likes with no oversight?

Sheesh...makes me think maybe the Mayans have it right.

Welcome back DB and have a good Christmas all . I'll believe Bernanke and the rest when I seen the books and hook them all up to lie detectors.............There is always quality truth and inciteful comments here at your website..........Ron Paul has gained wider and wider notice becuase he is Truthful. These foks talking "Fraud" and "RICO" have the same chance of wider and wider notice. If Barney Frank is calling it quits, that is also a good sign in the Fraud Forward Direction.......www.SilvertonGold.org..........

Answers to “The Four Money Questions” will be front and center, this week. So many defects are obvious in the conflict and nature of fiat currency. It’s more than politics. actions are followed by consequence, much more quickly, now. Finding the answers to the four money questions has to be done, before everyone is late for the party. Being late is being last in line at the homeless shelter.

Nice one dar! My friend has one of these..


I had to help him a bit because he couldn't take off while in the water. I had to adjust (increase) the propeller pitch a bit and now it works fine. He did buy the emergency parachute for it and so far hasn't had to use it.
Enjoy and take care....happy holidays!

Great, no more bailouts for the kingdoms of yerp, and the CFRtv congressional election campaigns paid off for the victors. So as Bernanke does the 'buck and wing' across the floor out of the room as he flips us all the bird, what are we going to do with the still damp useless scrip the Rothschild Europeans paid us back with for Bernanke-purloined-American-producers' hard earned cash? Beyond mewling and prancing, AGAIN, congressional FAIL. I am surprised Bernanke has not been arrested already. The SEC and Secretary of the Treasury are both exGoldman-Sachs and freemasonry brats. Bernanke's rotted log should be easy to find. This rip off must have been easier than conning their grandmothers.

Can we get some leadership? A lobotomized yes-man street punk president and congress breaking laws to be recolonized by Europe should be like feeding chickens to the big cats in the zoo.

Inventing all major advances in technology and other scientific endeavor takes thinking. I fear not these S-1867 m___________s, for I have the power.

Folks, just look at what's happening all over Washington. It is so obvious that the main players in this real life action/thriller; Everyone is above the law! Corzine, Holder, Obama, Clinton, to name a few, say and do what they want to do and the hell with our country. Bernanke HAS AND WILL bail-out his European masters, and what are you and I going to do about it? Call a cop? Write our congressman? Yeah right! This is about destroying the middle-class. And they know exactly what they are doing.

One critical point needs to be made a thousand times: The biggest enemy that threatens the liberty, security, and prosperity of the American people is not the invented terrorist group Al-Qaeda, or Iran, or China, but the hijacked and treasonous government in Washington. It is a failed terrorist state [3].

It is a matter of public record that members of the Obama administration, including President Obama, have committed federal crimes, war crimes, and the crime of treason. They have followed in the footsteps of their predecessors in the administrations of Bush II, Clinton, Bush I, Reagan, Carter, Ford, Nixon, and Johnson.

As a result, Barack Obama has no authority to be President, and the hijacked Congress has no authority to make any laws. They have lost the confidence of the American people.

A bad government has no authority over a good people.

The coordinated bankster effort to smear Ron Paul with their army of brain dead MSM puppets isn't working. The more they push their hackneyed puppet show, the more glaring its failure becomes, as Ron Paul has just moved into the Iowa lead with just 2 weeks to go.

MAKE THIS GO VIRAL! For years we've been told to never touch our retirement savings. That was before we found out that crooked Wall Street banksters were using our 401k as their own personal pocketbook. Cutoff the supply of money they use against us each and every day...OURS! 2012 will be a very trying year for us all and we can all use a little extra cash. Just for 2012, go on line to your retirement provider and set your retirement contribution to 0%. You can change it anytime and it only takes a few minutes and key strokes. This will give you the extra money you'll need next year AND you'll be doing the country a favor by fighting back NOW!
