In an interview released today by Digg and the Wall Street Journal, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner was pressured about the growing popular movement to Audit the Fed spearheaded by Texas Congressman Ron Paul. A visibly uncomfortable Geithner attempts to dismiss the question by stating "I'm sure people understand that you want to keep politics out of monetary policy." When Geithner is again pressed on the issue, he makes the stunning assertion that conducting an audit of the Federal Reserve—something never before done in its 96 year history—is a "line that we don't want to cross," proclaiming that such a move would be "problematic for the country."

I think Ron Paul's HR 1207 has touched a nerve with these scum. They have to know their time is almost up, more people are waking up to their scams. Unfortunately if HR1207 sees the light of day it'll be very watered down, the paid off power brokers in Congress will never let it get to a vote, but it is fun to see them squirm.

Is it wrong to wish death on him provided that I have no actual influence on the circumstance under which that would be the result?

The only good thing about Bernacke being reappointed is that we can look forward to Dr. Paul grilling him in the house and with any luck Rand Paul and Peter Schiff in the senate. Bernacke probably checks his closet and under his bed for Ron Paul before he goes to sleep


Geithner must have some high up connections to have gotten to where he is today, can't even do his taxes right and when his house can't sell instead of lowering the price he raises it. With this man in charge of the treasury is it any wonder that the US Economy is getting worse and worse?

Bernithner, (two guys...ONE BRAIN) is really worried this bill is gaining momentum. I'd like to know what soft questions Colbert is going to ask. Colbert has "zero" economic understanding, A total lemming so it would be easy for Bernithner to toe the Fed line...and talk about how important it is TO LOWER interest rates to ZERO, print-up TRILLIONS, BAIL-OUT unprofitable corporations, Buy JUNK derivatives, and MOST OF ALL how important it is to keep this all a secret from the ignoramus American people that don't know what's GOOD for them.

Rockefeller doesn't seem to like the idea of the Federal Reserve being opened up. Notice his reaction when told about it. I bet his depends got filled pretty fast.

Rockefeller: "I would not look upon that as one of the great issues to be addressed, but can someone please address my Full diapers...please?"


That "MUSIC" at the end...when his eyes light-up, is worth a million bucks...priceless...thanks for that!

GREAT video. However, the more I watch these guys in full interviews, not just quotes, they seem like they are personally putting themselves on the line.

I saw Paulsen say that he'd be damned if he was the head of the fed that caused the second Great Depression.

I don't know what to believe anymore

Yeh, anything that makes tiny tim or rockerfeller upset is going to make me happy. I want to see the fed audited, I think a lot of decisions have been made over the years that most of us would be upset about.

I watched the interview completely open minded hoping to feel different (better) about this guy and his roll but when the interview finished I still found myself not trusting him or this admin what so ever.

It was kind of like when a person your not completely sure of comes to the door and your dog who never barks or grawls starts acting up.

I guess I'm the dog that feels that something stinks with Geithner.

What they are afraid of is showing the American People that all of our debt has been bought back by the reserve only to be passed directly back to the people through inflationary pressures caused by printing the money to BUY the debt.

It would be a bad day for our economy.
Not that I don't think it should be done. Just saying.

They are afraid of showing the balance books to be a verbatum copy of the Madolf court proceedings.

But yeah, their power is waning. This is why they are stepping up their efforts to clamp down on dissent in earnest.

I think in their heart of hearts they think they're doing the right thing according to their worldview. In order for these people to have gotten to where they are today they've had to pretty much sell their souls to the devil. I really don't think they care what the American people think as far as them placing themselves on the line. We're just cattle/beasts of burden to them.

I heard an interview with Peter Schiff and he said something about imaging what our world would be like if we weren't being held back by these bankers. Our tech has improved for the most part, but nothing has really changed for many decades. I really like my Itouch and think it's an impressive piece of technology, but at the same it scares me. The leap in tech from the Ipod video to the Itouch/Iphone is one heck of a leap. I can only imagine what black ops groups have. These bankers/globalists have held us back so long that it's insane.

The morals/values that these people live by are totally opposite from what our idea of a normal person's values of being. Keeping people in virtual slavery with income taxes, welfare programs and such and now this swine flu business, these people are evil according to our worldview, but in their world they're doing the "right thing". Humanity as a whole will be better off without these jokers.

Excellent post, but I take issue with one line only: "I think in their heart of hearts they think they're doing the right thing." I think the truth is that these people literally have no concept of "right" and "wrong." They are sociopaths, pure and simple.

A sociopath's brain is physically different than a "normal" human's brain. They lack the neural connections necessary to feel empathy. They look like us, can be charming as all get out, and can act "normal" when they want to, but inside they are almost a different species. The dumber or more unstable ones end up as criminals or drifters. Those who can hold their polished surface images together with a little more finesse get to become CEOs, Washington lobbyists, and Wall Street traders.

Otherwise, as noted, great post.

Here's a fun quote, by the way:



Like a color blind man incapable of distinguishing red from green, a small minority of the human population cannot experience or fully comprehend the normal range of human emotions. And like those color blind who may conceal their condition by using the correct words while not understanding their meaning (e.g., the top traffic light is “red”, the bottom is “green”) - so does this minority conceal their condition by playacting an emotion's exterior signs (facial expressions, exclamations, body language). However, they do no actually experience the emotion in question. Their deception is revealed in the laboratory, where they respond to words like DEATH, CANCER, DISEASE, as if they were DAY, CREAM, or PAPER. They lack the ability to comprehend the emotional “punch” that certain words contain. They use others’ emotional reactions as cues, and they adjust their behavior to portray the correct ‘emotional’ behavior. (Hare, 129-30)

These individuals are known as psychopaths. Not only can they not feel the pain of others, they often seem to deliberately cause others pain. Lobaczewski refers to this disorder as an “essential psychopathy” to distinguish them from others with deficits in their genetic/instinctual endowment, essential psychopathy being the most severe and disturbing.

Many so-called “antisocial individuals” acquire similar characteristics in their life-time, whether caused by brain damage to certain areas of the brain, or functionally, because of close contact with and influence by such individuals. Lobaczewski terms such individuals characteropaths. The vast majority of both these groups cannot change. The acts that we call evil (especially on a macrosocial level) can be traced back to this deviant minority of human beings and the effects of their actions on their family, friends, and society.

Isn't the fact that he admits that auditing the fed could cause problems enough evidence to prove that it really has to be done? If something shady has been going on (which we all know that it has), we need to face the truth, however horrific it might be and try to move on in a more transparent manner.

The problem is that it would highlight that our entire economy is one big ponzi scam. It is a system built on lies and perpetuated by lies. The whole thing will come tumbling down if they actually reveal what is going on behind the curtains. It would be terrible for the economy and the people in power, who are capitalizing on this corruption.

So we have to choose. Continue living a lie, or face the truth no matter the consequences. Personally, I want the truth.

Yes, exactly.
The FACT of the matter at hand is that this man is openly saying that showing the balance sheets of the bank would be detrimental to the economy. Meaning, that the bank is involved in underhanded practices... above and BEYOND then *known* underhandedness in regards to the housing bubble.

They are afraid to show the American people that the balance sheet appears as nothing more than a multi-tiered accounting scheme that is designed to funnel more and more money out of the populace and into the people behind the curtain.

I agree silent thunder, that's why I put in "according to their worldview". The world they live in and the one we live in is totally different. Gerald Celente put it best when he compared them to money junkies, doesn't matter how much money/wealth they have, they have to have more. You're right these people aren't capable feeling empathy or even caring about the consequences of their actions.

Not to be picky or anything but I alsways thought of Geitner as more of a sociopath not a psycopath.

They don't want us knowing what they are doing as it would be bad for them. It maybe bad for us in the short term but in the long term it could be much worse to continue sleeping.
