Here are the connections, the perps and their nefarious plan. It's time all red blooded American citizen screams 'bloody murder' the Barbarians are inside the gates folks. Spread the truth, speak out, write letters and post copies of this e-mail to everyone you know. Start looking for Soros, Obama, Frank, Geithner and Dodd. Do your duty FReepers, so help us God.
God Bless You All,

CONNECTION BETWEEN TIMOTHY GEITHNER AND GEORGE SOROS*
Source: Cliff Kincaid from Accuracy in Media
The former President of the New York Federal Reserve Bank, the Chinese-speaking Tim Geithner is an associate of Henry Kissinger who can be counted on to convince the Chinese Communists to continue to buy U.S. debt and finance Obama's massive expansion of federal government power.

It also turns out that Geithner's father, Peter F. Geithner, serves on the board with Kissinger of the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations.
There has to be something more to the rationale for confirming Timothy Geithner, who can't even play his own taxes.
It doesn't take much digging. For anybody in the dark about this, please consult and closely study his bio. Geithner is a wheeler-dealer for powerful special interests.
If you examine the nature of the "Group of Thirty," an affiliation which appears at the bottom of his biography, right after his Council on Foreign Relations membership, you will quickly learn that the former President of the New York Federal Reserve Bank is an associate of the governor of the Chinese central bank through this mysterious organization of bankers and other top current and former officials from various countries. You will notice that other Obama nominees and associates are members, including Paul Volcker and Lawrence Summers.
You will also learn that this organization has been funded by--surprise--some of the same financial institutions getting federal bailout money. These include American International Group, Goldman Sachs and Citi, among others.
Because it has a website and publishes an annual report, all of this seems open and above board. But the fine print reveals that some of the meetings are by "invitation only."
The entire list of "contributors and supporters" of the "Group of Thirty" is quite impressive. You will find not only U.S. financial institutions getting bailout money, but central banks around the world and Arab financial interests. In addition, you also find private financial interests, including the hedge fund operated by billionaire and Obama contributor George Soros.

Remember, Tim became 'Turbo-Tax' Tim Geithner after he failed to file income tax returns, because he couldn't figure out how to run the popular program.
Remember, Obama said that Tim Geithner was really gonna take charge as WH Pressitute and tear up those nosey reporters with his rapier whit? Bawwahahaha!
Stop wasting your time and that of other people. Learn something about finance and then think about these matters again.
Connection with a lot of (old) Europeans and Soros:
The Secret Financial Network Behind Wizard George Soros
STD (as far as I can tell) is helping to spread the the Soros infection news and plans. If you are a fan of George, you should state that right now.
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Eugene A. Ludwig, a member of the Group of Thirty, concludes (among other things in his 17 lessons learned from the 2008 financial crisis) that “increased transparency” is important.
I agree. Let’s have not “increased transparency”, let’s have Total Transparency...EVERY spending bill should be posted on the internet 7 days prior to a final vote so our “representatives” AND their constituents (us) have time to read it and voice our concerns. These “representatives” need to listen to “we the people”.
No earmarks(bribes), no funding for thousands of collectives/countries and 100% transparency including our “representative’s” yearly tax returns posted.
Thanks for posting, STD. These “masters of the universe” need to be____-_____ at the least or otherwise ______.
Thanks for the information, STD. Hope you’ve sent it on to GB.
Needs to be saved AND shared.

I don’t see where this is new info.
The bailouts were all among buddies, classmates, and mutually beneficial relationships all along. Geitner was/is a useful tool but not the same gravitas as most others. Sure these relationships exist. All have something personal to gain but I’m not so sure their political objectives are the same.
I don’t condone any of it but we’re kind of stuck with the hand we’re dealt. Till someone figures out how to stop efforts at currency inflation, the distruction will continue.
Soros wants a global currency/global govt. just like Kissinger. So he helped the Nazi’s and now he likes the Commies he is praising them trying to get them to play ball.
The endgame of QE2 may be to motivate China to join a system of global governance and global currency against its wishes and better judgment.
Certainly the motivation for a global currency exists. Consider the comments of Henry Kissinger of one year ago:
I believe that what the Chinese are trying to do is to make themselves somewhat more autonomous of financial decisions made in the United States. And therefore, they want to reduce their reliance on the dollar as a reserve currency. It seems to me they are moving very gradually, very carefully to create the possibility of an alternative reserve currency. They cannot move rapidly because they cannot depreciate the dollar without hurting themselves [by taking losses on unpaid debt]. But over a ten year period, the thrust of the Chinese is to become less dependent on American financial decisions.
What is Kissingers solution? A new world order. China cannot be permitted to grow unrestrained while Europe and America are in decline.
George Soros has called for the same solution:
[We] really need to bring China into the creation of a new world order, financial world order. They are kind of reluctant members of the IMF. They play along. But they dont make much of a contribution because it is not their institution.
I think you need a new world order: China has to be a part of the process of creating it and they have to buy in. They have to own it. (Emphasis added). Continue at link
Notice his praise for China earlier today...
“There is a really remarkable, rapid shift of power and influence from the United States to China,” Mr. Soros said, likening the U.S.’s decline to that of the U.K. after the Second World War.
Because global economic power is shifting, Mr. Soros said China needs to change its focus. “China has risen very rapidly by looking out for its own interests,” he said. “They have now got to accept responsibility for world order and the interests of other people as well.”
Mr. Soros even went so far as to say that at times China wields more power than the U.S. because of the political gridlock in Washington. “Today China has not only a more vigorous economy, but actually a better functioning government than the United States,”
The chance for a new world order
Kissinger: Obama primed to create ‘New World Order’
This EVIL little man should be in prison but instead he is helping to destroy America and bring about a global government. Of course nothing is said about the brutal tactics of the communists. The so called socialists we have in America today are nothing but communists they haven’t been able to disarm us yet thank goodness I have no doubts if they had they too would use brutal force to control every aspect of our lives and we would be slaves like the Chinese.

How Eugene Ludwig (Clintons roomie at Oxford) turned an obscure Treasury bureau into a bully-pulpit for banking reform.
by Todd Larson
“This is one moment I’ll never forget,” says Gene Ludwig, pointing to a photo on the wall of his Washington, DC, office. “The president looked me in the eye and said ‘Is this the right thing to do?’ And I said ‘Yes, it is.’ He looked across the cabinet table and said ‘Then just go do it.’ And I did.”
The 1993 photo is standard DC-insider fare: Ludwig stands outside the White House cabinet room with then-Secretary of the Treasury Lloyd Bentsen, current Secretary Robert Rubin, and President Clinton, among others. What Ludwig “did” after the picture was snapped is far from standard. Within the space of five years, Ludwig elevated his little-known bureau of the Treasury Department, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), into one of the most visible and powerful offices in the federal government. In the process, he became the most celebrated - and controversial - comptroller since Honest Abe first created the office in 1863.
As comptroller, Ludwig served as the chief federal supervisor and regulator for the country’s 3000 national banks. (Despite his title, the banks no longer issue currency; they do, however, hold close to 60% of US commercial banking assets.) In addition to policy recommendations, the job included supervision of the OCC’s vast staff of examiners, the teams responsible for on-site supervision of national banks’ loan and investment activities, liquidity measures, and overall risk sensitivity. The goal (per the OCC’s stated mission): to ensure the “safety and soundness of the national banking system” by reigning in and disciplining wayward banks whose policies might expose them to the risk of failure. [...]
Ludwig remains proudest, however, of his efforts to compel bank compliance with fair-lending laws and his revitalization of the Community Reinvestment act (CRA), a 1977 law requiring banks to invest in poorer neighborhoods and improve lending and service to low- and moderate-income borrowers. Although branded an “activist” for his vigorous support of the act - he enlisted the attorney general and secretary of Housing and Urban Development to help enforce it - he points to the cold, hard facts to justify his tactics. After just one Justice Department referral in the OCC’s previous 129 years, Ludwig’s tenure witnessed 27 fair-lending cases, resulting in tens of millions of dollars in fines against violators. Lending to low and moderate income Americans increased tenfold, as did national bank investments in community development corporations. “The national banking system as a whole,” he asserts, “did more to help low and moderate income Americans, and particularly Americans of color, than at any time in the history of the republic by far. The record speaks for itself, and I’m proud of it.”
Head down and hands in pockets, Gene Ludwig has paced his DC office for an hour, his story a restless recitation of oft-repeated events and statistics he seems eager, above all, to get through. Then, for the first time, he pauses, interrupting his narrative to reflect on the ethical and political imperatives behind his public record. “I think this is fundamental to the well-being of the country,” he explains. “We simply cannot be a nation of haves and have-nots. We can’t have a nation that’s the wealthiest nation on earth but leaves our citizens behind. It’s not only the right thing to do, it’s the only way to keep a safe and sane world.” contin
It’s a long article but worthwhile read. Gene Ludwig didn’t do it alone. It was a deliberate plan - check out the Clinton administration and their subsequent employment.
I believe China is the big honcho in this whole world order deal. We’re being sold out by their comrades who came after them. Timothy Geithner looks like a moron but he anything but...he was selected to keep an eye on the “one”. Don’t forget Maurice Strong went to China after he stole millions from the Food for Oil ripoff. They need to drain the world totally dry of their resources - it’s the only way they can rule the world and use us as cheap labor.
...In the 1940s, the term “China Hands” came to refer to a group of American diplomats, journalists, and soldiers who were known for their knowledge of China and influence on American policy before, during, and after World War II....
The scanners is just another tactic they’re using to desensitize, dehumanize, get us used to the “herd” mentality with control being the end game.
PS: Geithner is taking orders from China.
Why open borders, no checks at ports, yet we’re being treated like cattle? Marxists believe we’re subhuman! We’re nothing special. We’re all special to God who made us.
Have you read Trickle Up Poverty?
Thanks very much for the post, bronxville. Connecting the collectivists.
Thanks for the post/links, Lori. The first link...”acivilsociety”...is a must read.
Why don't you post the list of firefighters in my district? And don't forget the list of past members as well. I am sure they too conspire to enslave the world .
More commie nonsense fromLouri. She is yet to reveal ant knowledge of finance or economics but spewing nonsense while using fancy words makes her happy. Just say any of the words "Fed," "Goldman," or "CEO" -- and step back.
Actually, "the endgame of QE2" is what it is: to combat deflation (that this concern is paramount was confirmed by yesterday PPI data, showing fastest price drop in 4 years). For any country, deflating its currency to motivate another to do something is like committing suicide just to motivate your mother to let you stay up late next time. But fromLouri does not have a clue.
For fromLouri and all the other conspiracy theorists on this tread, spewing nonsense makes them feel like generals without learning a word about the war.
You are telling me, TXHurl, something about STD's motivation: he wants "to spread the [awareness about] the Soros infection..." I never questioned his intentions.
No offense intended, but your reasoning, however unintentionally, is just like that of liberals: for them, intentions are all that matters; as long as they are good, nothing else matters.
Well, for most of our history, we Americans have subscribed to the notion that the ends do not justify the means. In addition to what you pursue, how you do that has also to be well-founded, just and moral. And that's exactly the problem with STD and the rest of conspiracy theorist. What they say not only lacks any foundation in fact or logic but also defames people.
Think about that for a minute. I would hope that, as an American, you would defend even a rapist against and a false accusation of rape. It's one of the Commandments: not to serve as a false witness. It does not say against whom -- that does not matter --- we should not be a false witness even against scum). It's also against the law.
But, according to you, apparently, defamation is OK if it is against someone that you and I don't like. If you don't like Kissinger, then go ahead, pile up nonsense and falsehoods against him -- that'd be OK with you.
" If you are a fan of George, you should state that right now."
See, it does not even occur to you that I simply dislike falsehoods and defamation. In your world, apparently, people just take sides for or against someone; they don't simply try to do what's right. Sad indeed.
Unlike STD, you are at least open-minded enough to pose a question. Thank you. That is why I am writing back at some length. STD, in contrast, merely called me names in post #11 and bragged about insulting yesterday another poster who, according to STD, is now "sulking" somewhere. And you hope to learn anything from such person? He does not give a d--n about the truth. It's all about him. Like many other bitter people, he mistakenly thiks that he looks better when he belittles other people. Well, throwing durt around does not make you cleaner.
And throwing dirt is all STD and his ilk do. What have you learned from his post? Only one thing: three people were once in the same room. That's all. From here he draws a conclusion that there is a conspiracy. Well, remember the Thanksgiving two years ago, when your family, including distant cousins, were at your house for dinner? You must've been plotting to take over the Fed. And anyone questioning that statement must be a Soros supporter. That's, in essence, STD's and other conspiracy theorists' "logic."
At a more scientific level, if you care, the mistake they make is well known and has a name of spurious correlation. Consider the fact that 99.99% of people that ever got into auto accidents ate tomatoes at least once in the year preceding the accident. A person that knows nothing about cars or tomatoes may conclude that the two are related, that eating tomatoes may even cause accidents. You would of course smile at that: This is merely a coincidence, a spurious correlation," you'd say. To persuade you about a relationship between eating tomatoes and accidents one would have to show more than the fact that they happened in the same year.
The anti-Fed theorists do exactly the same: Paulson worked at Goldman before becoming Bush's aid, so there you go: he bails out Goldman because those are his old buddies. Never mind the facts --- that Goldman never asked for a bailout and actually fought against it. Nope, they must be in cahoots. Total nonsense, of course. [ Coupled with the unprovoked anger in people like STD, this belief in the utter nonsense suggest that such people have schizoid personalities. Whether or not this is the case is for their psychiatrists to decide.] Their rants have nothing to do with the truth. Ever.
Those rants have consequences however. Whatever STD's and fromLouri's intentions are, they are playing the hand of the socialists in this country. Marx wanted you to be angry at the "financiers," the "rich," the "capitalists" and especially the "banks." [Actually there was the most evil category to be hated -- the Jews: they are supposed to be all rich, all in finance and all crooks. That's the only thing that the anti-Goldman, anti-Fed anti-CEO crowd does not bring up. Yet. In any other respect, they repeat the same thing as the Nazis in the 1930s Germany]. That's exactly what STDs and fromLouris are actually doing, regardless of their motivations. They are singing the communist song --- naturally, without any knowledge of what they are actually singing about. Beets learning some finance and economics before speaking on the subject.
It's your informed choice, TCHurl. You can continue to cheer the scoundrels that violate Judeo-Christian values by defaming people, or you can stand up for the age-old American tradition of defending the innocently accused (yes, even bad people). You can continue to repeat nonsensical criticisms of the Fed, the banks, the CEOs, etc. or actually learn something about what they do (or at least suspend judgment). And, you can continue to sing the Marxist songs of STD, fromLouri and the rest of that supposedly conservative crowd, or at least refuse to participate. And, in the very least, you've got to choose whom not to listen to when you have insufficient knowledge of some subject matter.
TopQuark thanks for your input.
What do you think about this theory...
“The theory may also explain Bernankes decision to pay banks interest on their excess dollar reserves.”
from this current (Thursday-November 11, 2010) article...
No hurry TQ. I just found it a very interesting, current and thought-provoking article and that sentence I quoted especially jumped out at me.
