“…A little trust for Bernanke,” Jim Cramer begs of his sheepish ‘Mad Money’ audience in a recent segment. “We’ve come to a point in this country where people think everyone involved in government is just totally owned by Lloyd Blankfein, Goldman Sachs, I mean the list goes on–”
It goes on indeed.
Jim Cramer, a clear TV parrot for the status quo, made an astonishing statement, ‘boldly’ putting forward his approval for Fed chief Ben Bernanke and Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner in the midst of controversy while brandishing the many conspiratorial detractors with a nod to Wall Street’s connection with ‘the Bavarian Illuminati, the Trilateral Commission and Queen of England.’
His facetious statement clearly dismisses the populist anger against not only the bailout, corrupt politicians and the Federal Reserve, but the deep-rooted establishment take-over over the economy at large. But the astronomical amount of money leveraged by government to worldwide finance says it all– a financial coup d’etat has taken place.
“I don’t know who is left. It’s like, if you’re involved in anything that touches money, or anything that touches Washington, it’s like your a bad person,” his co-host responds. “I mean the regional governors are feeling bad.”
“I don’t even care,” Cramer continues. “Call me suicidal. I think Geithner’s doing a great job. I was a very big critic of Geithner. I am embarrassed by the way that they treated him today. This is a man who, along with Ben Bernanke, saved Western capitalism. Do they forget what it was like, when Paulson, who also got religion, pushed for TARP…do they not know that we were almost in a barter economy?”
Cramer overlooks the fact that these banksters are not our saviors but our assailants.
Paulson was reported by numerous members of Congress, including Inhofe, Sherman, DeFazio and Lincoln (see below), to have threatened that ‘martial law’ would law would hit American streets if they did not pass the TARP bailout provisions. Congressman Brad Sherman (D-CA) stated:
“Many of us were told in private conversations that if we voted against this bill on Monday that the sky would fall, the market would drop two or three thousand points the first day, another couple of thousand the second day, and a few members were even told that there would be martial law in America if we voted no.”
[efoods]At that key moment in the economic crisis, threatening force for the hand-over of a blank check, the financial sector imposed an economic coup d’etat with a gun to head of Constitutional government. That those, like Paulson, proved to be more tied to Goldman and Wall Street then to the American people at such a critical time quite possibly amounts to treason, or nearly that.
Bernanke did the same thing when he stated in a Congressional committee hearing that allowing a Federal Reserve audit would undermine its independence on monetary policy, that it would be an interference on the part of Congress (who alone have Constitutional authority over money), and that it would trigger a further implosion of the economy. Bernanke’s threat is moreso veiled than was Paulson’s dramatic action. However, I believe it sent a clear message– that those who wish to look behind the curtain will bring about certain doom (the archetype of the ‘all powerful’ Wizard of Oz.)
Moments later, he says Tim Geithner’s doing a good job too. “Can’t I just come out here as a commentator and say, ‘I’m impressed by Geithner.’ I feel strongly that Geithner– this is AIG, AIG-Goldman, Goldman. And you know what, the Bavarian Illuminati, the Trilateral Commission, Goldman Sachs and the Queen of England are not all bad.”
Perhaps this is a pot-shot at the anti-Fed ‘conspiracy theorists’ likely filling his email box, or a hard and fast public backing of the establishment in all its facets, as long as it’s ‘good for the economy.’
Despite Cramer’s witticism– after all we can’t make too much from a sarcastic comment about the ‘Illuminati’ financial-complex– he too is reinforcing the idea that any exposé of the vast dark sides in the underbelly of the ‘real economy’ would be financially devestating, particularly for Wall Street (be it Federal Reserve giveaways, gunpoint-bailouts, bullying Congress, dark-of-night pension looting, missing trillions from government budgets, unlimited narco-dollars, overpriced bids for partner firms, and whatever else has been done, whether proven or indicated, behind the curtain.)
