TIMOTHY F. GEITHNER – TREASURY SECRETARY
THE MASK BEHIND THE FAILED BAILOUTS, TAX EVASIONS, DROP OF THE DOLLAR, ETC.
Photo NYT: Geithner, Bernanke, Treasury------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ testified about Bear Steans
KING OF THE BAILOUTS
● Architect of the failed bailouts of 2008
As President of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, which serves as main link to the financial markets:
○ has been main architect of Bush Administration response to the financial crisis and Wall Street bailouts
○ got Treasury Secretary Paulson and Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke to approve his Machiavellian plan
○ is the New York central banker who in secret crafted the bailouts - not at Bush’s White House or Treasury
○ ignored criticism of his New York Fed’s lack of transparency
● Behind government intervention of Bear Stearns, AIG, Lehman Brothers, Wachovia, etc.
○ was behind the bailouts of the investment bank BEAR STEARNS and the government takeover of insurance giant (AIG)
○ circumvented rules to arrange the bailout of BEAR STEARN’s creditors
○ was driving force in bailing out BEAR STEARNS….or in the … bankruptcy filing of the investment bank LEHMAN BROTHERS
○ showed favoritism toward Citigroup — the financial firm where his mentor, former Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin, serves as a director and senior counselor.
○ pushed for CITI to take over troubled banker WACHOVIA with government bailout, even after WELLS FARGO offered to buy WACHOVIA at higher price and not cost to taxpayers
● Big Government guy:
○ believes that the Treasury Dept. should be given vast powers to develop experimental strategies for responding to the crisis. He will be Paulson II.
● Did not pay his taxes tax documents here, or here
○ did not paid some $42,000 in federal taxes from 2001 through 2004 while working for the International Monetary Fund (IMF) which oversees the global financial system
○ as an employee of the IMF, he was considered self-employed and was responsible for paying his self-employment taxes
○ paid $26,000 of that debt after Obama tapped him as his choice for Treasury Secretary
● Kept tax reimbursements of taxes he did not pay
○ he kept the IMF’s tax allowances instead of paying his taxes (the IMF gives its employees an extra allowance so the employees can pay their self-employment taxes)
● Illegal deductions
○ deducted unallowable expenses and did not amended them: i.e., overnight camps of his dependent child in 2001, 2004 and 2005
○ improper small-business deduction, a charitable-contribution deduction for ineligible items, and the expensing of utility costs that went for personal use.
● Employment of illegal maid
● Clinton bureaucrat
○ his mentor was Clinton’s Treasury Secretary, Lawrence H. Summers, who now will serve as a senior economic adviser to Obama
○ worked under Treasury Secretary Robert E. Rubin and Summers to guide the Clinton administration's response to currency collapses
○ in the last years of the Clinton administration, Geithner was promoted to undersecretary when Summers became Treasury secretary.MORE STUPID ACTIONSAs if being one of the main instigators of the failed bailouts and evading his taxes are not enough, the next Treasury Secretary is creating more troubles:
● the dollar promptly fell and gold jumped $40 after Geithner said the Obama Administration “believes that China is manipulating its currency”
NOTES TO PONDER
● With no experience in private banking or finance, he has been the mask behind the bailouts. Who are the faces behind the bailout-government-takeover?
● How can you be head of the Department of Treasury which oversees the IRS, when you have tax problems?
● Despite all his tax evasions, this man will be the nation’s chief tax collector – Obama vowed to be the most transparent and clean administration ever. Obama, you fail again.
● He claims he committed an honest mistake [in not paying his taxes for years] which sounds like a pathetic excuse coming from a man considered to be a brilliant financial markets specialists
U.S. Senate Approves Geithner. Final vote 60-34.
No surprise here: a tax-cheater will lead the IRS. Viva the change in bizarro USA!
REP. RAHM EMANUEL (D-IL) - OBAMA'S CHIEF OF STAFF
● Former Clinton chief fund-raiser
● Knife Story:
At a dinner to celebrate Bill Clinton’s first presidential victory (Mr. Emanuel was his chief fundraiser) – he began to reel off the names of those who had 'crossed' him. He grabbed a steak knife and began plunging it into the table shouting “Dead! Dead! Dead!” after each name.
● Sent Fish Like Gangster Movie:
Sent decomposing two-and-a-half-foot fish he sent to a pollster who displeased him.
● Hung up on political contributors in a Chicago mayor's race, saying he was embarrassed to accept their $5,000 checks because they were $25,000 kind of guys.
● The Five Most Infamous Rahm Emanuel Moments
● Emanuel Was Director of Freddie Mac
● Emanuel-Freddie Mac Connection
--Emanuel was senior adviser for former President Bill Clinton
--Afterwards, he was appointed to the board of Freddie Mac
--During this time, Freddie Mac was plagued with scandal involving campaign contributions & accounting irregularities
--He received $51,750 from Freddie Mac & Fannie Mae.
● Emanuel - Top Recipient of Wall Street Money
--He "was the top House recipient in the 2008 election cycle of contributions from hedge funds, private equity firms and the larger securities/investment industry--not the most popular of industries in the current economy. Since being elected to Congress in 2002, after working as an investment banker, Emanuel has received more money from individuals and PACs in the securities and investment business than any other industry."
--"For his 2008 re-election, Emanuel raised more than $2.7 million yet faced no serious opposition in his Chicago district. Since being elected to the House six years ago, he has collected $1.5 million from the investment industry , with lawyers and law firms and the entertainment industry coming in at a distant second and third place ($682,900 and $376,100)."
--Emanuel was an investment banker between the Clinton administration and his election to Congress and reported a net worth in 2007 of between $5 million and $13.2 million (lawmakers report their assets and liabilities in ranges). That would make him the 34th wealthiest member of the House.

● Emanuel: Why Liberals Love Crises
Emanuel: "YOU NEVER WANT A SERIOUS CRISIS TO GO TO WASTE." A CRISIS IS "AN OPPORTUNITY TO DO THINGS YOU THINK YOU COULD NOT DO BEFORE." That is why Democrats created the financial crisis. People are now willing to relinquish power to government.
