Geithner is Trying to Rewrite History in New Book
Mew York Post ^ | May 12, 2014 | John Cruedele

What’s wrong with this picture?

Tim Geithner, the former US Treasury secretary and one-time head of the New York Federal Reserve Bank, wants to be seen as one of the guys who got the financial system out of trouble. It wasn’t easy, he admits.

And it wasn’t always neat. In fact, you might even call it messy. And — oh, my! — Geithner suffered for his efforts. He’s still suffering today. And you’ll understand this more fully if you cough up $25 for his new book.

Tradition dictates that I give the book’s title and the publisher at this point. But I’m not going to. I don’t want to be responsible for even one extra copy of this book being sold.

Well, first of all, the guy is trying to earn money legally probably for the first time in his career by promoting his book. If that's what he's got to offer as inside scoop stuff, the book should already be appearing in landfills all over the country.

Ooooh! Obama told him to lie. And isn't that one of the Ten Commandments? First of all, that Obama told him to lie is not a very productive way to sell books. Tell us that Obama told someone NOT to lie, now that's money in the banks that Geithner, conspired, colluded, tipped off, protected, helped embezzle, and violated every single felonious banking law ever since banks first emerged. Telling you that he didn't pay income taxes is a commendation, high praise compared to what the thoroughly sinister, corrupt, duplicitous, scurrilous con man of all con men has managed to do. He's the guy who rigged the prices on snake oil in a conspiracy against snake-oil salesmen.

But Geithner has got to have some huge set to even ever show his ugly puss ever around anywhere.

Obama told him to lie. Well, one thing for sure, with a record of legal impunity that he's pulled off he sure hasn't got the slightest sort of imagination in writing some tell-all tome.

When has Geithner not lied, and why should I trust him now?

Remember when the ‘Progressives’ berated Romney for his career in private equity? What will they say about Geithner’s job as President of Walter Pincus? I say that since he criticized Elizabeth Warren in his book, he’s in for a rough ride.

My bet is he used a pencil.

Did Geithner admit in his book that he was the Co-Mastermind of the IRS Program to harass the TEA Party Groups by using the Lois Lerner, the Wicked Witch of the Left?

I purchase and read a lot of books, many political in nature in recent years.
I won't with this one.
While I appreciate that he reveals he was asked to lie by the Obama Administration, we already know Obama is a pathological liar.
But, if Tiny Tim is so moral as to be offended by being asked to lie, why didn't he resign on the spot?
He's a punk.

GEITHNER BOOK TARGETED TO PEOPLE WHO JUST FELL OFF A TURNIP TRUCK Obama's stranglehold on Treasury with henchmen Geithner and COS Rahm Emanuel's dual role

EXCERPT---FOURTEEN TRILLION DOLLARS Behind The Real Size of the Obama Bailout; A guide to the abbreviations, acronyms, and obscure programs that make up the $14 trillion federal bailout of Wall Street
Mon Dec. 21, 2009 12:23 PM PST

The price tag for the Wall Street bailout is popularly put at $700 billion—---the actual size of TARP--the Troubled Assets Relief Program. But TARP is just the best known program in an array of more than 30 overseen by Treasury Department and Federal Reserve that have paid out or put aside untraceable money to bail out financial firms and inject money into the markets.

To get a sense of the size of the real $14 trillion bailout, see MJ chart at web site. A guide to the pieces of the puzzle includes massive untraceable Treasury Department bailout programs.

In September 2008, the US Treasury (controlled by Obama/Emanuel) announced that it would insure the holdings of publicly offered money market mutual funds. According to the Special Inspector General for the Troubled Asset Relief Program (SIGTARP), these guarantees could have potentially cost the federal government more than $3 trillion [PDF].

Public-Private Investment Fund: This joint Treasury-Federal Reserve program bought toxic assets from banks and brokerages—as much as $5 billion of assets per firm. According to SIGTARP, the government's potential exposure from the PPIF is between $500 million and $1 trillion [PDF].

TARP: As part of the Troubled Asset Relief Program, the Treasury controlled by Obama/Emanuel made loans to or investments more than 750 banks and financial institutions. $650 billion has been paid out (not including HAMP; see below). As of December 21, 2009, $117.5 billion of that has been repaid.

--SNIP---LONG READ---go to web site to read more and checkout the shocking financial charts.



Musta been one hefty payday for the Chicago criminals. They all promptly jetted off on another celebrated multi-million dollar tax-paid vacation to elite island paradises. Places to open offshore accounts, where know-it-all liberals sip and whine about the their terrible burden they bear of knowing what’s really, really good for us peons.


NOW IN THE WH, MEET THE KINGPINS OF CRIMINAL CHICAGO POLITICS The malevolent parasitic strain of Chicago criminals wasted no time.....the minute Obama/Valerie/Rahm/Axelrod/Geithner, and that diseased bunch, landed in DC they did two things that were apparently crucial to their evil plans

(a) they took control of the US Census;

(b) Obama placed his COS Rahm Emanuel in control of the US Dept of the Treasury (the IRS).

THE SMOKING GUN---WSJ REPORT--On Jan 20, 2009 Timothy Geithner was appointed Obama's Secy of the Treasury. But within three weeks, the Obama White House tightened its grip on Treasury. Obama put his COS, Rahm Emanuel, in charge of Treasury---Rahm Emanuel's dual role was an unusual move.

When he got to Treasury, WH COS Rahm Emanuel was so involved in the inner workings of the Treasury that the phrase "Rahm wants it" had become an unofficial mantra among subservient govt staffers, prostrate in obeisance, scurrying to accede to Rahm's wishes, according to Treasury government officials. Reported by WSJ / 05/31/09

More here:

THIS MADE ME LAUGH OUT LOUD shortly after quitting his powerful WH job as Obama's COS, Rahm held a presser declaring he "just remembered" he really, Really wanted to be Mayor of Chicago. Then Rahm announced he had magically "raised" $10 million for his campaign in "just a matter of weeks." (waiting for hysterical laughter to die down). Ya gotta wonder how much Wall Street Rahm wired offshore when Obama put him in charge of the entire US Treasury.


Rahm Emanuel takes over Chicago / May 16, 2011

EDITED EXCERPT .... an exciting time in the inbred world of Chicago Democratic politics.... Democratic don, Richard M. Daley ruled for 22 years, inheriting the mayoralty from his father, Mayor Richard J. Daley who held on for a generation. Now the ex-chief of staff of Chicagoan Barack Obama (once a state Senator, now president) was installed. US Treasury Secy Tim Geithner was there, and so was Chicagoan David Axelrod, an O team player.

BTW, Mayor Daley's former chief of staff, Valerie Jarrett, hired Obama's wife, Michelle, to work in Chicago City Hall.

Jarret is now ensconced as Obama's chief policy advisor. In Chicagoland vernacular, "chief policy advisor" means "wire-transfer artist".

Mayor Emanuel's innovative ways commenced early on---his organization was getting $50G's for the best seats at the inauguration (mmmm........that accounts for another couple million scammed from Treasury).

The mayoralty (and its--cough--"benefits") is a job Emanuel has coveted since he was a machine go-fer back in the 1980s.....before he became Bill Clinton's national campaign finance chairman and then a dual role as senior White House aide and Goldman Sachs lobbyist and then (gasp) becoming a multi-millionaire, thanks to a measly few months at a local investment firm...then a (gag) Congressman for four terms---then White House chief of staff for Obama that helped create the 2010 Republican House landslide.
