Who is Timothy Geithner?
Economic Policy Journal ^ | Robert Wenzel

Posted on 03/17/2009 4:06:47 AM PDT by AJMCQ

Morgan Reynolds, who served as chief economist for the US Department of Labor during 2001–2, George W. Bush's first term, has done a little fact checking on the new Treasury Secretary:

Who is Geithner? He is a creature of the eastern banking establishment and ruling class through and through. His résumé nicely matches his actions in handing out government money and guarantees to the "right people." Geithner’s father Peter is director of the Asia program at the Ford Foundation, a New World Order operation. Peter Geithner oversaw the "microfinance" programs developed in Indonesia by Ann Dunham-Soetoro, Barack Obama’s mother. Geithner’s maternal grandfather, Charles F. Moore, was an adviser to President Eisenhower and vice president of Ford Motor Company, according to Wikipedia. Geithner’s wife Carole Marie, like Geithner a 1983 graduate of Dartmouth College (Ivy League), is daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Sonnenfeld of Princeton, N.J., a professor of French and comparative literature at Princeton University (Ivy League) for 27 years.

After Timothy Geithner graduated from Dartmouth he picked up an M.A. at Johns Hopkins in something called "international economics" and East Asian studies. That is the extent of Geithner’s formal training in economics, as far as I can tell. Then he worked for Kissinger and Associates for three years, a Rockefeller satrapy, before a series of government appointments, mostly at Treasury where he was Under Secretary for International Affairs under Robert Rubin of Goldman Sachs and Rockefeller’s notorious Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and then Lawrence Summers of Harvard University (Ivy League), World Bank and CFR. Summers, of course, is currently Obama’s head of the National Economic Council. Want a solution for the financial and economic woes? Why, hire the same experts who caused the problem(s).

Geithner departed Treasury to join the International Monetary Fund and CFR in 2001–2. In October 2003 he was appointed president of the New York Fed where he subsequently arranged rescues of Bear Stearns, AIG and other well-connected,world-class losers, all in the best interest of the American people, of course.

Did you catch this:"Peter Geithner [Timothy's father] oversaw the 'microfinance' programs developed in Indonesia by Ann Dunham-Soetoro, Barack Obama’s mother" ?

Earlier, I reported that NYT identifies Peter Geithner, in Timothy's wedding announcement, as the "program officer in charge of developing countries for the Ford Foundation." This just smells to me like a spook cover. I said so back then, before I knew about the connection between Obama's mother and Geithner's father:

One side note. Geithner graduated from the International School of Bangkok, Thailand. His father appears to be a possible CIA agent... It makes you wonder how long "they" have been grooming Obama as the "agent of Change" president.

Obamas mother and Geitners parents are old time friends, from what I have read.

Disregard, covered in the article.

I also went to the International School of Bangkok - still have my class ring.
My dad wasn't a spook, though.

A revelation. No wonder we have been told so little about Obama’s life. He was indeed “annointed” by the Establishment. When will we findout who was actually running his very slick campaign?

We saw it with Bill Clinton, and now we're seeing it, in 3D and Technicolor with theater-quality Surround Sound, that when you elect a President you're electing thousands and thousands of others as well. Clinton brought us the likes of Janet Reno, and now Obama is bringing wave after wave of people whose ideas are simply not compatible with those who see America as the greatest nation in history.

Sadly, some of Obama’s gifts to our country could be with us for decades.

This is the first time I have seen these connections, yet Geithner has been part of Team Zero for some time. I guess the media has been too busy memorizing each morning's Daily Hate from Rahm, James and George to bother with any of it.

Thanks! I had seen that photo, but completely forgotten about it. Sadly, I don't think most of those who brought the Obama Abomination on us really know, or care, who his heroes are. His appeal is so much like that of Hitler, with the hypnotic style of speech and use of catch phrases that appeal to those who can't think for themselves, that it's going to be very tough to get rid of him and the ilk that's coming in on his tide.

An article I missed last week, Thank you Fred Nerks, for pointing it out, and thank you Candor7 for the link.

Who is Geithner? He is a creature of the eastern banking establishment and ruling class through and through. His résumé nicely matches his actions in handing out government money and guarantees to the "right people."

[snip]

Peter Geithner (Timothy's father) oversaw the "microfinance" programs developed in Indonesia by Ann Dunham-Soetoro, Barack Obama’s mother.

At one point, Peter Geithner worked with Obama’s mother, Ann Dunham, on a microfinance programme in Indonesia (the new president and treasury secretary were born within a fortnight of each other).

The destruction of the USD as the world’s shelter currency (long, but worth the effort to read it):

If the below is true, we may be in more trouble than we realize:

“Peter Geithner (Timothy’s father) oversaw the “microfinance” programs developed in Indonesia by Ann Dunham-Soetoro, Barack Obama’s mother.”

“At one point, Peter Geithner worked with Obama’s mother, Ann Dunham, on a microfinance programme in Indonesia (the new president and treasury secretary were born within a fortnight of each other).”

OMG, this explains it. I have telling my husband that world wide meltdowns don't just happen. It didn't make sense to me that all around the globe would suddenly be having financial crisis’ unless it was manufactured. And I'm no financial genius, and don't play one on TV.

Given how freakin’ incompetent is Timothy, the tie backs between his father and the Dunhams couldn’t be scripted any better.

Thanks for the ping, LucyT.

No wonder BO said Tim Geithner was the only person who could fix the mess we’re in. The financial destruction was carefully planned and executed, wasn’t it?

Have you seen the cheese cake photos that are supposedly Ann Dunham-Soetoro as a young woman? Snopes gives them a “undetermined” status...

Those photos were on a birther thread or two.

It has been speculated that they were taken by Frank Marshall Davis in his apartment. His porno autobiography mentions seducing a young girl named “Ann,” who came to his apartment and had a three-way with Davis and his wife.

As far as I know, this is all speculation, but it seems to fit the kind of family situation we know the Dunhams had, and the kind of girl that she was—already a Communist in high school.

Saw that one 2 days ago. Don’t know if its true.

If Timmy’s daddy was working with osama’s mama, we are indeed in for a quick slide into euro-oblivian.
