Obama throws Ben Bernanke under bus?, Obama fired Bernanke on the spot, He’s already stayed a lot longer than he wanted or he was supposed to, Uncertainty over economy

“11.4%: What the U.S. unemployment rate would be if labor force participation were back to January 2008 levels.” …James Pethokoukis, American Enterprise Institute, June 2013

“Private sector employment increased by 119,000 jobs from March to April, according to the April ADP National Employment Report….The March report, which reported job gains of 158,000, was revised downward to 131,000 jobs.”...ADP May 1, 2013

“Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.”…George Orwell, “1984″


Did Obama just throw Ben Bernanke under the bus?

From Market Watch June 19, 2013.

“Obama’s ‘firing’ of Fed chief Bernanke strikes a nerve”

“Like the subject of his comments, President Obama’s sparse words to Charlie Rose about Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke were almost uncanny in their ability to send Fed watchers into a state of convulsion.

In an interview that aired Tuesday morning, Obama said of the economist who’s led the U.S. central bank since 2006: “He’s already stayed a lot longer than he wanted or he was supposed to.” And later that day, former Fed governor Laurence Meyer provided his commentary: “He essentially fired Ben Bernanke on the spot and gave him a fairly tepid testimonial afterward.”

Whether or not that’s true, the reactions to Obama’s comments certainly struck a nerve, and that speaks to the lack of certainty over the economy after Bernanke’s departure. (Learn about seven top candidates to succeed Bernanke as Fed chief.) Bernanke’s likely exit has been on the radar for some time, but Tuesday’s developments forced Fed watchers to start seriously considering a post-Bernanke era.

Pimco’s Mohamed El-Erian tackled the issue of life after Bernanke in a commentary Tuesday. He noted that the next Fed chair won’t have a lack of challenges on his plate:

“He leaves his successor with a set of unprecedented and unresolved problems to contend with, from weaning the economy off life support to navigating the consequences of an unusually large balance sheet. And with so much uncertainty about the success of the Bernanke way, econ textbooks and quarterly unemployment figures just don’t hold enough answers to how his stewardship of the U.S. economy will play itself out in the years ahead.””

From commenter RMinNC today.

“Rep. Alan Grayson questions the FED inspector General where $9 TRillion dollars went… and Inspector General Elizabeth Coleman hasn’t a clue… Dunno whether to laugh or cry – I am still getting over the shock and have watched 4 times – LISTEN carefully to what she says – “THEY HAVE NO JURISTRICTION” to investigate the fed!!! Only their programs??

OK the world has been fooled long enough -ENOUGH is ENOUGH!!! Get the hell outta paper money people and if you buy gold and silver, get the real stuff not paper gold etc. This is pure evil!
Just how in the HELL can the Federal Reserve LOSE 9 TRILLION dollars IN ONLY 8 MONTHS? As Rep Grayson said, this comes out to 30,000 dollars for every man, woman, and child in the US…..Personally, I think it is more than that ! I think he meant to say; 30, 000 dollars per man, woman, and child in the WORLD.

Remember: EVERY TIME YOUR ( or should I say THEIR) FEDERAL RESERVE PRINTS MORE MONEY, THE MONEY YOU HAVE IN YOUR POCKET HAS LESS VALUE……according to the 1913 standard, the dollar you now have in your pocket is worth only 4 Cents..Now that should make you feel real good to start the morning off !

The clown on this video either didn’t 1) know what Congressman Grayson was talking about or 2) was deathly afraid to answer his question, or 3) knew if she told the truth in her answer, her funeral would be the next day…..thats why there are NO AUDITS ON THE FEDERAL RESERVE BY ANYONE.

America has been living with this CRIMINAL CABAL since 1913….isn’t it time someone went to jail? Isn’t it time for some REAL Hope and Change to come to this country? America must do something and do it fast, we are on a very slippery slope and going down hill with no brakes.. Personally I would recommend the following:

2. ESTABLISH A FLAT TAX SYSTEM WHERE EVERYONE PAYS, AND NO EXCEPTIONS, REGARDLESS OF CONDITION, even those on welfare owe something to the country they live in..
3. DISBAND THE IRS, AND FURLOUGH THE 40,000 WORKERS (ROBBERS) THAT NEST THERE. They have fed at the public trough long enough

If America doesn’t do something very soon, it will go under from the weight of UNLAWFUL and illegal debt that has been placed on the backs of it’s citizens be they, democrat or republican, liberal or conservative, black or white, dumb or educated, and everyone else living and walking around with their eyes closed in this country.

If I left anyone out, it was not intentional because when we go down as a nation……………

    “Fed predicts 6.5% jobless rate as early as 2014”

    “The Federal Reserve now says the U.S. unemployment rate could fall to as low as 6.5% by 2014 instead of 2015 as previously estimated, according to the bank’s latest economic forecast.”


    2 + 2 = 5

  5. CABBYAz…you ask at 11:57 pm last night,

    “Did you ever see the Lipizzaner Stallions in show? A couple of times they came to my area and it was such a thrill to see their program.
    You will like this video”

    I apologize for not getting back to you sooner….but the answer to your question is YES, I saw them in Vienna,….they were beautiful and just like a well oiled machine…all knowing exactly what to do and when to do it…….

    Without doubt, they are the most perfect horses in the world…you know that General George S Patton Jr. spent a lot of time when he was stationed in Austria at that riding school…..

    I don’t blame him. I would have too..

  6. I got the chance to view the video you posted, Rm. simply beautiful.

  7. SUEQ and CABBYAZ….

    You know the Spanish Riding School and the Lipizzaner stallions owe the existence to General Patton’s intervention during and shortly after WWII….

    All of the colts are born a black or black-dark brown in color and after anywhere between 6 to 10 years they have turned a snow white…they are known as the horse of ‘royalty’……one look at them explains that comment..

    These were the most beautiful animal I ever encountered.


  9. sorry it didnt post…let me try again…

    Terrorist Bill Ayers: Try Obama For War Crimes


  12. Your welcome CW…….

    This video was one taken at the TEA Party gathering today in DC……looks like they had a good crowd…I wish I could have been there….

  13. I was wondering about that little bird that keeps following me around! After all they don’t have to be big things:

    Mueller Admits FBI Uses Drones in Domestic Surveillance


    One has to wonder why, if used at the border, they haven’t been more effective!

  14. OBSERVER….

    Those at the Mexican border have been turned off by order of Janet Napolatin (El Tubo)…you know …to save energy…some of that secquester stuff.. .

  15. RM,
    Your mentioning Gen. Patton’s intervention re. the Lipizanners does ring a bell in my distant memory. It must have been especially magnificent to see them in the Austrian setting! By contrast, the first time I saw them was in a large, rustic barn-type setting in Prescott, AZ. We had front row seats on the ground floor, so when they would come in formation toward us, we could almost reach out and touch them. It was thrilling to be so close, but obviously the setting was a far cry from the halls of royalty in Austria.

    I’m so glad you love those marvelous beasts, too. You were privileged to have owned a horse, but I can imagine how much it hurt to lose it and can see how it could take away any future pleasure. It was when a good friend and I were taking riding lessons that I severely injured a knee and was warned to never ride again. It was downhill with my knees after that.

    Just a little story: When we were on our way to live in Phoenix, we stopped at Bryce Canyon, where a large number of horseback riders were on their way down into the canyon. Twinges of self-pity hit until I saw another car stop, and a young woman my age was lifted out of the car and carried over to the rim so that she could experience the beautiful view. That lesson taught me very well, because, after all, I could WALK.

  16. YES Cabbyaz…..it sure was.

    Being in the Army has given me a chance for a lot of PLEASURE…..as well as a lot of PAIN.

    I have done things and gone places, were it not for the Army, that I could have only read about in books….for that I am forever grateful. In this short 78 years (coming in February 22) I have lived, I will have managed to cram in two full lifetime of learning …. after that, I will be working on the third.

    That is of course; If the Good Lord is willing.

  17. Cabbyaz…in reference to my last post…..I said,”That is of course; If the Good Lord is willing'”

    May I also add:

  18. I love the Irish music, not only because I’m about as Irish as you can get, but also because the WORDS to their songs have MEANING….

    Life without meaning is worthless.

  19. Cabby,

    I wish I could put into words…….you are so right about your experience at Bryce Canyon, as well as your personal accident. God bless you.

    I find myself wallowing in self pity many times. Yet I am so blessed.

  20. And now for a brief history lesson on Europe….

  21. Good evening folks,

    Am I missing an Upgrade? All the videos are simply black…

  22. Do you kinda wonder where the orders came from???

    Capital Police Harass Tea Party Protesters

    “I guess freedom of assembly is not in style anymore…

    This was the voice mail left on the voice mail of the organizer of today’s Audit the IRS Tea Party rally.”


  23. Except that all children, blacks included, get a better education in these schools than the plantation public schools and their thought police keeping all under their desperate control.

    Obama Likens Catholic And Protestant Schools To Racist Segregation System…


    Likening religious schools to segregation–a racist system that forced blacks to attend different schools and use different facilities than whites in the American South–President Barack Obama told a town hall meeting for youth in Belfast, Northern Ireland on Monday that there should not be Catholic and Protestant schools because such schools cause division.

    He’s obviously painting an early picture of his future plans for such institutions. Everyone MUST comply with the new one world think which is nothing more or less than sanctioned perversion and evil.

  24. This kinda goes along with the “get those Catholics/Evangelicals who defend their beliefs and persecute/lock em up” agenda of the regime:

    Holder At Gay Pride Event: LGBT Agenda Will Be A Top “Priority” At DOJ…

    Attorney General Eric Holder hosted a “pride” event for gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgenders at the Justice Department on Tuesday, telling attendees that the homosexual agenda will be a “priority” during the remainder of his time as the nation’s top cop.

  25. OK….So Now We Know Who Your Real Daddy Is………

    The Question Now is…Who’s Your Real Mommy?

  26. Do Ya’ll remember the story about Inspector General, Gerald Walpin?

    He refused to drop an investigation against one of Obama’s personal friends who had misused monies at AmeriCorps. Shortly after, he was told to resign or he would be fired within the hour. The O administration then dragged him over the coals insuating that he was an senile old man.

    Here is Mr. Walpin’s take on the IG at the treasury dep’t re: the IRS scandal


  27. oldsailor80

    There is a story which explaines the Irish jigs. I once read that there was once a great deal of hostility towards those who danced openly. So they learned how to dance with their legs and feet,which the law couldn’t see them do, because only their feet moved. They would do their jigs partially obscured,and it would appear that their upper body was not moving.

  28. Some great comments here:


    FBI Director Admits They Use Drones For Domestic Surveillance…

  29. This is why we have Congressional oversight to investigate the executive branch. The executive branch’s Inspector Generals, like Gerald Walpin, are not free from political pressure from the top to cover up wrongdoing in the executive branch. They are not independent. Their investigations can not be relied upon. Congress must do its own investigation or appoint an independent counsel to investigate.

  30. AP CEO: Obama Regime Succeeded In Muzzling Government Sources From Talking After DOJ Seized Their Phone Records…

    “The MSM would be going ballistic over this if we had a Republican in the White House.”


    The CEO of the Associated Press told an audience Wednesday that the Department of Justice has succeeded in muzzling government employees from talking to AP reporters in the weeks since the seizure of AP phone records was revealed.

    “What I learned from our journalists should alarm everyone in this room and I think should alarm everyone in this country. The actions of the DOJ against AP are already having an impact beyond the specifics of this particular case,” AP CEO Gary Pruitt told an audience at the National Press Club. “Some of our longtime trusted sources have become nervous and anxious about talking to us, even about stories that aren’t about national security. In some cases, government employees that we once checked in with regularly will no longer speak to us by phone, and some are reluctant to meet in person.”

    After it was made public that the Justice Department took AP Washington bureau phone records as part of the Obama administration’s aggressive anti-leak operation, Pruitt said the fear among potential sources has spread to reporters from other outlets.

    “I can tell you that this chilling effect is not just at AP, it’s happening at other news organizations as well,” he said. “Journalists from other news organizations have personally told me it has intimidated sources from speaking to them.”

    Benghazi Whistleblower Lawyer Says Joint Chief’s Chairman Lied to Congress

    An attorney whose firm represents two Benghazi whistleblowers said Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, lied to the Senate when he said there was never a “stand down” order during the Benghazi attack on Sept. 11, 2012.

    “What was fascinating is that he explained his lie to them,” Joe DiGenova, an attorney representing one of the whistleblowers, told CNSNews.com.

    “He actually said they were sent to Tripoli. They were needed in Benghazi,” said DiGenova, a former U.S. attorney, now with the Washington firm of DiGenova & Toensing. “They were told not to go to Benghazi, because their mission was Tripoli. I call that a stand down. He doesn’t. He can live with whatever he wants to think, but people died. In my opinion, what he did was lie.”

    During testimony to the Senate Budget Committee last Wednesday, Dempsey said, “They weren’t told to stand down. A ‘stand down’ order means don’t do anything. They were told that the mission they were asked to perform was not in Benghazi, but was at Tripoli airport.”

    This is contrary to what Gregory Hicks, former number two State Department diplomat in Libya, told the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee about the terrorist attack on the Benghazi compound that killed four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens.
    We have the sorriest bunch of generals and admirals the United States military has ever had……..otherwise they would have already taken the USURPER-IN-CHIEF out of office.

  33. Obots Create Facebook Page To Attack Mike Zullo’s Investigation Of Obama’s Birth Certificate


    Posted on Wednesday, June 19, 2013 7:27:06 PM by Cold Case Posse Supporter

    A Facebook page has been recently created by fanatical Obama supporters to attack Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office Cold Case Posse lead investigator Lt. Mike Zullo. Lt. Mike Zullo and members of the Cold Case Posse have done diligent investigative work over the past 21 months and it has paid off. Mike Zullo has proven that Barack Obama on August 27, 2011 displayed a 100% fraudulent birth certificate in PDF form to the United States public. Mike Zullo had his evidence backed by a Hawaiian professional court certified document expert who specializes in computer generated handwriting. With Reed Hayes aboard and Mike Zullo’s upcoming meetings with congressman who now are interested in the investigations findings, Obama supporters are very worried. This Facebook page put up last week called ‘The Many Lies Of Mike Zullo’ is proof of their desperation to obfuscate the true facts that prove Obama’s birth documents are fraudulent along with his selective service registration card.

    Good morning Zach, et al.

  35. oldsailor80

    You can be assured that the insane verbal attacks will continue. They are perpetrated by people whose entire thought processes are skewed to irrational reasoning from which there is no escape. Youonly have to listen closely to their lunatic babble. It tells on them. They actually think their lies are the truth. So once again UP becomes DOWN.

  36. oldsailor80

    ………..and worse yet, we have the CHILD PRODIGIES among us who also think UP is DOWN and they lap up every word uttered by the IRRATIONAL LEFT, and atually think it is the truth. Therein lies a very real problem ……..NINCOMPOOPS LEADING NINCOMPOOPS……..one of them is General Dempsey. He is a CHAMPION OVEREDUCATED WORDSMITH. I wonder what his Honduran Counterpart would have to say about him.

  37. oldsailor80

    ………..then both MR.WORDSMITH,along with MSSSSSSSS.WORDSMITH travel to Ireland then Germany,while spewing their IRRATIONAL VERBIAGE. Hopefully the IRISH and the GERMANS along with the rest of the WORLD see through the BASTARD’S BS. Spoken by the MASTER TWISTER,and “master………..baiter extroadinaire.”.
