The Money behind cap and trade.
Rather long piece, but worthwhile....
excerpt...

Fox: A ten trillion dollar market, for emissions trading?
Sandor: “We are also trading in the United States—its very important for the listener to understand that this is not a market of tomorrow: it’s a market of yesterday and today. In August, we began trading the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, which is a mandatory carbon market that stretches from Maine to Maryland. And since January, we’ve been trading 440,000 tons a day, 743, 16 a day—

Fox: Explain, how does this market get created in the first place? Is this government created in terms of credits, or is this an association where the actual amount of carbon emissions is traded in contracts?
Sandor: No. The way it works is, the government sets a cap. Let’s say you’re a utility, and the cap is 1 million tons. And each year, you have to reduce by a certain amount, to 900,000 to 800,000 to 700,000. If you’re particularly good at it, and you have a 1 million base, and a requirement to go to 900,000, but you go to 500,000, you can sell those. Suppose I’m not so good because I can’t switch easily from coal to natural gas. It takes me three years to build a new technology, then I can buy your emissions, and the systemic emissions will be lower, but you as the low-cost driver, can allow me to buy your credits temporarily to hedge myself. So its mandated by the government. The emissions are capped. The cap goes down every year. And then those people who get below their cap are incentivized to do so, because they can sell them to people who can’t put the technology in very quickly [snip]

THE U.S. FEDERAL RESERVE BALANCE SHEET EXPANDS DRAMATICALLY
http://jsmineset.com/2010/04/17/market-commentary-from-monty-guild-59/

Our friend, Larry Jeddeloh of The Institutional Strategist, in his Market Intelligence Report of April 14, 2010 brought an important point to our attention. He points out a large increase of $421 billion in the Federal Reserve’s balance sheet in the same week that the Greek Bailout took place.

The bailout for Greece was only $41 billion and the Fed balance sheet expanded by $421 billion in loans. What is going on? Obviously the Fed is lending a lot of money. Was some of it lent abroad? We do not know.

One other explanation is that the loans, the U.S. banks had kept off of their books in offshore SIV’s [Special Investment Vehicles] are coming back onto their banks’ books, and the Fed is lending against them to provide liquidity for U.S. banks. This brings us to a major question that all investors and U.S. taxpayers should consider. How did the accounting profession allow this SIV type of activity, where banks were allowed to keep liabilities off their U.S. books in the first place?

Greece in trouble, now junk status but what happened to that $421.8 billion the Fed loaned out?

Further in Soros article:

Recent YouTube videos posted by financial bloggers have been hurling a slew of accusations at the FDIC regarding its deals with companies like OneWest, drawing a rare response from the FDIC. The central accusation that drew the response, notes eCreditDaily.com, was the federal agency’s so-called “loss-sharing agreement” with OneWest, which critics claim makes it a much more profitable incentive for the bank to move forward with short sales or foreclosures instead of working with homeowners on mortgage modifications.

Understanding Soros [A FReeper’s take of Corsi’s Research]

Soros’ intellectual framework-— London School of Economics, deeply influenced by Karl Popper. Deep passion for questioning any claim of truth, moral relativism. “Open Society.” [Citizen of the world.]
“When I heard President Bush say, ‘Either you are with us or you are with the terrorists,’ I was reminded of Nazi propaganda.” [Wired to presume that patriotism is facism — selfish and evil.]

” ... too focused on pursuing narrowly defined U.S. nation-state interests”. [Corsi’s take of Soros-think about Bush]

That’s the thinking that funneled hundreds of millions of dollars to pollute U.S. patriotism via the Open Society Institute [founded in 1979].

The Open Society Institute is the root that sprouted Moveon.org, Center for American Progress, and Red Alert reports.

Soros admitted that he spent “several hundred million dollars” to have GW. Bush defeated in ‘04. Even though he failed, he poisoned the waters of “national loyalty”, the very patriotism that binds our nation’s unity.

Soros held a fundraiser at Obama’s home. He maxed his donations to Obama before Barrack even won his senate seat [but that pales compared to the peripheral support]. “In 2006, Soros urged Obama to run for president.”

When Barrack made his bid, Soros held a meeting with his big money allies in his Wall St. office.

While Obama ran, Soros positioned himself to profit from our economic meltdown. He bet against the US greenback and made billions. In March of ‘09, Soros gloated to London’s Daily Mail, “I’m having a very good crisis.” His Quantum Investment Fund reaped $2.9 billion in ‘09, and a cool $1 billion in ‘08.

Soros authored a book in ‘08, “The Credit Crisis of 2008 and What It Means.”

Soros: “We are in the midst of the worst financial crisis since the 1930s ... [the meltdown] “marks the end of an era of credit expansion based on the dollar as the international reserve currency” [and was “the culmination of a super-boom that has lasted for more than twenty-five years.”

He anticipated the panic, he was prepared for the panic, and he tossed gasoline on it to profit from it.

He anticipated the panic, he was prepared for the panic, and he tossed gasoline on it to profit from it.

Pretty much describes Soros......bottom feeder from top to bottom.

I remember saying to those I worked with, in Sept 08, when Paulson set the panic button off to the members of congress...” We are watching the biggest money power grab in the history of our country”.....and so it was and continues to be.

“While Obama ran, Soros positioned himself to profit from our economic meltdown. He bet against the US greenback and made billions. In March of ‘09, Soros gloated to London’s Daily Mail, “I’m having a very good crisis.” His Quantum Investment Fund reaped $2.9 billion in ‘09, and a cool $1 billion in ‘08.

Soros authored a book in ‘08, “The Credit Crisis of 2008 and What It Means.”

Soros: “We are in the midst of the worst financial crisis since the 1930s ... [the meltdown] “marks the end of an era of credit expansion based on the dollar as the international reserve currency” [and was “the culmination of a super-boom that has lasted for more than twenty-five years.”

He anticipated the panic, he was prepared for the panic, and he tossed gasoline on it to profit from it.:

We will never know hom much money Soros REALLY made.
He controls companies in Bermuda, Burma, and elsewhere, which do not disclose balance sheets or financial statements.

Thank you, FRiend. I’ve heard others say that too — Soros has a network of secret investors.

Backhoe did some research on the electronic run that triggered the meltdown:

Financial Meltdown Reprise

US financial meltdown on 9-11-08.
Is the date of the financial meltdown just a coincidence? I don’t think so. From the short video in the article:

On 9/11/08 at 11:00 am in the morning, $550 Billion was withdrawn from US money markets in about 1 hour starting an electronic run on the banks.

The Treasury pumped $105 Billion into the system, but quickly realized they could not stem the tide.

They then decided to close down the money accounts and announce a $250,000 guarantee per account to avoid further panic.

They believed that if they had not done that, then by 2:00 pm that afternoon (9/11/08) $5.5 Trillion would have been withdrawn from US money market accounts collapsing the US economy and within 24 hours the world economy.

This was a deliberate attack on the US. [End quote — I agree]

Burning oil rig aside — note it is British Petroleum. Why is it that there is any space left for a BP oil rig in the gulf?

All this BS about “Big Oil”. It’s CRAP! We aren’t aggressive enough. Why? Enviro-wackos. I wonder if British Patroleum had contributed to Sierra Club, etc? A way foreign oil interests can meddle with US politics.
