In or about 2008, Congress wanted more information about the massive bank bailout that our tax dollars were paying for. Several senators and congressman wanted a wee bit more information than just giving Hank Paulson a blank check with no strings attached…..Geithener and Paulson told members of Congress….this is all above your heads…you won’t get it…
And there was a far more terrifying threat….
If you don’t write the banksters a blank check with no strings attached…there will be martial law.
And so CONgress wrote a blank check, which it turns out was a whole lot bigger than they thought it was at first….meanwhile, CONgress…and by extension all of us were getting utterly conned by the Banksters to the tune of trillions of dollars:
While Timothy Geithner was head of the NY Federal Reserve, he argued against legislative efforts by Senator Ted Kaufman, D-Delaware, to limit the size of banks because the issue was ” too complex for Congress and that people who know the markets should handle these decisions,” Kaufman recalls. Meanwhile, Geithner was fully aware of the enormous secret loans while Senator Kaufman was kept in the dark. Barney Frank, who was authoring key bank reform legislation was also not informed of the secret loans. No one in Congress was told. 6 Shocking Revelations About The Bailouts
This is also a time to go back and review all of the maneuvering surrounding the massive, closed door, secret bailouts. It seems that Congress was threatened with Martial Law if the blank check bailouts did not get passed through:
Speaking on Tulsa Oklahoma’s 1170 KFAQ, when asked who was behind threats of martial law and civil unrest if the bailout bill failed, Senator James Inhofe named Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson as the source.
” Somebody in D.C. was feeding you guys quite a story prior to the bailout, a story that if we didn’t do this we were going to see something on the scale of the depression, there were people talking about martial law being instituted, civil unrest”¦.who was feeding you guys this stuff?,” asked host Pat Campbell.
” That’s Henry Paulson,” responded Inhofe, ” We had a conference call early on, it was on a Friday I think ““ a week and half before the vote on Oct. 1. So it would have been the middle “¦ what was it ““ the 19th of September, we had a conference call. In this conference call ““ and I guess there’s no reason for me not to repeat what he said, but he said ““ he painted this picture you just described. He said, “˜This is serious. This is the most serious thing that we faced.'”
Why, I want to know, are there not more serious calls for charges of treason or high crimes against the architects of these bailouts?
