Bernanke at the Fed

Bernanke2

The story of Bernanke
Long but very interesting.

On November 8, 2002, on the occasion of Milton Friedman’s 90th birthday, Ben Bernanke took a day off from his job as a governor of the Federal Reserve Board. Escaping the marble corridors of the Fed’s Washington redoubt, he journeyed to the University of Chicago to pay tribute to the great economist, and particularly to his work on the Depression. “You’re right,” Bernanke conceded, alluding to Friedman’s conclusion that the Fed’s foolishly tight policy had been responsible for the appalling hardships of the 1930s. “We did it. We’re very sorry. But thanks to you, we won’t do it again.”

Insider Trading – Congress At Work

Insider Trading

How the Congress works. Another example of how Wall street gets it’s contributions back. The problem is those using the inside information don’t go to jail if they get it from the Congress.

Inside the shadowy, poorly policed world of “political intelligence”

An excerpt…
On April 1, 2013, an hour before the markets closed, a congressional staffer named Brian Sutter passed along to a lobbyist the kind of tip that can make a savvy investor a quick fortune: Medicare was about to raise some reimbursement rates, which would be a windfall for big insurance companies. Ten minutes later the lobbyist, Mark Hayes of Greenberg Traurig, whose clients included Humana, notified an analyst at Height Securities, a small Washington investment research firm. And minutes after that, Height issued a “flash report” to 200 investor clients, including several large hedge funds and money managers, 44 of which traded on the information and profited when shares of large insurers jumped just before the close, according to court filings by the Securities and Exchange Commission. Fifteen minutes after the bell, Medicare’s administrators announced to the public what this network of Washington insiders had long since ferreted out: Reimbursements were going up.

Islam – For What it Is

This is an article that stems from some emails between friends.
Below are the emails:

Vince is a friend of mine. Doug is a Brit friend of his. The point of this article is that until the western leaders recognize and acknowledge the fact that the Islamic extremists are not “perverting” Islam but, rather, are following the violent elements of that religion, then we cannot effectively deal with the 15-20% of Muslims who gravitate to those elements of Islam. It emphasizes that the other 80-85% focus on the peaceful elements of Islam and that rationalizing the violence has always been a problem for them. But now that the extremists are acting out their violent beliefs in western countries, it has become a problem for all of us.Watch movie online Get Out (2017)

Interestingly, his hypothesis is that the motivation of Obama, et al is to prevent a backlash against the 80% of peaceful Muslims among us. His thesis is that, because there is no hope that westerners and the 80% can work together to counter the 20% until there is an open discussion about the violent aspects of Islam, this denial by western leaders could eventually put the 80% Muslims living in the west in even greater danger.

How the Fed Flubbed It
An excerpt from The Atlantic by Sebastian Mallaby

On November 8, 2002, on the occasion of Milton Friedman’s 90th birthday, Ben Bernanke took a day off from his job as a governor of the Federal Reserve Board. Escaping the marble corridors of the Fed’s Washington redoubt, he journeyed to the University of Chicago to pay tribute to the great economist, and particularly to his work on the Depression. “You’re right,” Bernanke conceded, alluding to Friedman’s conclusion that the Fed’s foolishly tight policy had been responsible for the appalling hardships of the 1930s. “We did it.

Send this to your Congressman and Senator. I would be interested in their responses – if any.

In 2012 the Defense Department agreed to pay $13.4 million for parts supplied by Bell Helicopter (TXT). The DOD watchdog says they should have cost $4.4 million. Audits are planned. “If it’s an isolated case, that’s one thing,” Under Secretary Frank Kendall said on July 10. “If it’s systemic, that’s a much bigger deal.”

A Government of Wolves

G of WOp

Cal Thomas USA Today

The loss of liberty doesn’t begin with invading armies, but with creeping government that slowly and almost imperceptibly invades our privacy with cameras, drones, wiretaps and monitoring of email communication. We are told this is for our own good. In this book John Whitehead sounds a warning about overreaching government we had better heed before the point of no return is reached.
