For the first time in weeks tha White House cranks up its Sunday Morning Talkie Limo, but it's not who you think. Would you believe U.S. Treasury Secretary HENRY PAULSON? With OIL and GOLD setting records and the US (and world) economies going in the tank, who better that Hank Paulson to quell fears your greenbacks are being devalued daily as the Federal Reserve prints paper 24-7 to desparately fill the hole. Harper's Magazine's January 2008 cover story "The Next Bubble" explains,
"In a bubble, ficticious value goes away when market participants lose faith in their religion - when their false beliefs are destroyed as quickly as they had been formed. Since the early 80's the free-market orthodoxy of the Chicago School has driven policy on the upward slope of an economic boom, but we're all Keynesians on the way down: rate cuts by the Federal Reserve, tax cuts by Congress, deficit spending, and dollar depreciation are deployed in heroic proportions ... The chronic trade deficit, the sudden depreciation of our currency, the lack of foriegn buyers willing to purchase its debt will require the United States government to print new money simply to fund its own operations and pay its 22 million employees. Surely this Paulson guy will give us some sense that he knows what he's doing as the Secretary of Treasury, RIGHT? Not so fast, blogger! It seems Mr Paulson has been "involved" in some side deals some in the global community aren't too keen on, according to www.GlobalAnalysis.net:
PAULSON ARREST UPDATE... BREAKING, MORE TO COME - PAULSON AND CHENEY SUBPOENAED BY TRIBUNAL 30 December 2006 Don't you feel better already? Apparently Paulson squirmed out of THAT! But he'll be the signature you stare at on the new Purple Abe funny money and will be on This Snufogopoulis, Wolfie and Fixed News to spread the Admin's Sunday Gospel that the US Economy is GANGBUSTERS (he'll leave out he means only the top 1%). The rest of the Sunday Morning Talkies will hover aound the Dem infighting but not so much about JOHN "Crazy Train" McCain's ties to regressive radical "holy men". See Greenwald's The McCain/Hagee story picks up steam and McCain reconnects with Liberty University at WaPo. Get away from The Spin with internet radio regulars Massa in the Morning, Sam Seder and an excellent Ring of Fire, especially the interview with DAVID CAY JOHNSTON about his book "Free Lunch". During last weekend's "Snow Storm of the Century" the Brick TeeVee crew huddled and decided that the best slogan for 2008 would be "HAD ENOUGH?"
U.S. TREASURY SECRETARY SEIZED AND BROUGHT BEFORE 'AD HOC' TRIBUNAL IN GERMANY ON A SUBPOENA HANDED OUT BY THE INTERNATIONAL COURT OF JUSTICE [OR 'WORLD COURT'] ON CHARGES OF MONEY-LAUNDERING, NON-PAYMENT OF THE WANTA $4.5 TRILLION AND FOR MISAPPROPRIATION AND/OR DIVERSION OF COLOSSAL $ SUMS.
PAULSON CHARGED WITH DIVERSION OF FUNDS AND WITH NON-PERFORMANCE OF WANTA’S $4.5 TRILLION: HE WAS ARRESTED AFTER SEEING MME ANGELA MERKEL, WHO WOULD OTHERWISE BE COMPLICIT IN THE $4.5 TRILLION THEFT (WHICH OF COURSE SHE IS NOT). BUT THAT WAS THE SITUATION.
ARREST CONFIRMED BY SEVEN SOURCES: KEY U.S. TREASURY OFFICIAL ORDERED TO GERMANY, SUBJECTED TO A GAG ORDER, AND INSTRUCTED TO TESTIFY AGAINST HIS OWN U.S. TREASURY SECRETARY. HE HAS BEEN IN GERMANY FOR THE PAST TWO WEEKS, TESTIFYING BEFORE THE TRIBUNAL, STAFF OF THE U.S. CONSULATE AND THE GERMAN ATTORNEY GENERAL (EQUIVALENT) ABOUT THE ENDLESSLY FRUSTRATED ATTEMPTS OF AMBASSADOR WANTA'S CORPORATION, TO OBTAIN RELEASE OF THE FUNDS, AND ABOUT ALLEGED CRIMINAL VIOLATIONS BY PAULSON, GOLDMAN SACHS AND COMPANY, ET AL.
THE U.S. ‘MAINSTREAM MEDIA’ ARE WITHHOLDING THE BIGGEST SCANDAL IN WORLD HISTORY FROM THE MUCH-ABUSED AMERICAN PEOPLE.
