We Have DAYS To Stop the $700 Billion Stick-Up (and Fascist Power Grab)


Congress hopes to pass the $700 Billion bailout bill by Friday, according to an article in Bloomberg.

In case you haven't heard, the bill would not only stick up American taxpayers for an additional $700 billion, but would literally give Paulson and the government fascist powers.

Don't believe me?

Well, as the Bloomberg article notes: "The bill would bar courts from reviewing actions taken under its authority."

Bloomberg includes the following quotes by people who understand the significance of the bill:

It sounds like Paulson is asking to be a financial dictator, for a limited period of time,'' said historian John Steele Gordon . . . .


The Bush administration seeks "dictatorial power unreviewable by the third branch of government, the courts, to try to resolve the crisis,'' said Frank Razzano, a former assistant chief trial attorney at the Securities and Exchange Commission now at Pepper Hamilton LLP in Washington. ``We are taking a huge leap of faith.''

This power grab is so serious that investigative reporter Larisa Alexandrovna calls it "the final stages of the coup".

We have days to stop this bill. March on Congress. Educate and motivate everyone around you. Do everything you can to prevent this disaster before it is too late.

Bernanke's smile

While the msm keeps telling us how grave these high level meetings are, I notice that, in all but one picture I've seen today, Ben Bernanke is holding his head low whilst smiling. Like he's a naughty kid in the back row at school sharing a joke.

I also thought it was interesting how this all started just after the last Bilderberg conference.

They no longer believed that James Earl Ray was the killer. For their peace of mind, for an accurate record of history, and out of a sense of justice they conducted a two decade long investigation. The evidence they uncovered was put before a jury in Memphis, TN, in November 1999. 70 witnesses testified under oath, 4,000 pages of transcripts described that evidence, much of it new. It took the jury 59 minutes to come back with their decision that exonerated James Earl Ray, who had already died in prison. The jury found that Lloyd Jowers, owner of Jim’s Grill, had participated in a conspiracy to kill King. The evidence showed that the conspiracy included J. Edgar Hoover and the FBI, Richard Helms and the CIA, the military, the Memphis police department, and organized crime."


Actually, I've been waiting

Actually, I've been waiting for the Bin Laden connection to the packaging of derivatives as "protection" (read side bets) to high risk, nevertheless, AAA rated loans. That was a sarcastic remark, it's hard to tell the difference anymore between reality and sarcasm.

There are several article links following that best describe this current financial meltdown:


The credit crisis could be just beginning Note the date of this article: 9/21/2007, a year ago.

Also, from a trader's forum, I pulled the following, but have no link:

More from Barry Ritholtz.

"I got called yesterday from the producers of The Daily Show, who asked for an explanation of this understandable to the "lay person."

Here is what I said to them:

1. Lehman Brothers was like the little kid pulling the tail of a dog. You know the kid is going to get hurt eventually, and so no one is surprised when the dog turns around and bites the kid. But the kid only hurts himself, so no one really cares that much.

2. Bear Stearns is the little pyro -- the kid who was always playing with matches. He could harm not only himself, but burns his own house down, and indeed, he could have burnt down the entire neighborhood. The Fed stepped in not to protect him, but the rest of the block.

3. AIG is the kid who accidentally stumbled into a bio-tech warfare lab.... finds all these unlabeled vials, and heads out to the playground with a handful of them jammed into his pockets."

Great analogies! Thanks,
