In the obama administration that is considered hard, ‘forceful’ labor. We have to face the fact that the entire system is corrupt. There is not one single innocent individual to be found in the banking/finance world. Every single one of the parasites needs to be held to account…it’s time to balance the books.

This is a STUPID question.

He’s the BITCH of the establishment criminal bankers.

NO. Of course he wasn’t, he’s their lap dog.

Geithner outrageously painted his corroboration in unethical, illegal coverup of Lehman’s dishonest disclosure with investors,
by distorting Paulson’s coercing Barclays to buy Lehman
as if it’s an effort to “save” the world.

In their efforts to distort their key role in causing the 2008 financial crisis, they tried to use the coverup attempt as the justification to be lenient on the Libor rate fixing by Barclays.

THEY SHOULD INSTANTLY BERATING THE ILLEGAL NATURE OF LEHMAN’S FIXING OF THE BOOK AS WELL AS THE LIBOR FIXING.

INSTEAD, THEY STILL TALK AS IF THEIR COLLABORATIVE EFFORT TO HIDE LEHMAN’S INSOLVENCY TO INVESTORS WORLDWIDE. DURING THE LAST MONTHS OF COVER UP, LEHMAN DUMPED VAST AMOUNT OF WORTHLESS TRIPLE A BONDS INTO THE ASIAN MARKET.

GEITHNER ALSO EGREGIOUSLY ADMITTED THAT HE DID NOT SEE ANYTHING WRONG WITH THIS DUMPING OF WORTHLESS ASSETS TO INVESTORS NOT WITHIN THEIR INSIDER CIRCLE. ON CHARLIE ROSE, GEITHNER, “AT THAT TIME, EVERYBODY WAS TRYING TO DUCK( AT THE EXPENSE OF UNKNOWING BUYERS OF THEIR WORTHLESS TOXIC ASSETS)” AND ACTED AS IF HIS FRIENDS, THE CROOKS’ DUCKING IS SUFFICIENT REASON FOR HIM NOT TO DO ANYTHING MORE.

THAT SHOWS THE ULTRA BLINDNESS TO FUNDAMENTAL ETHICAL STANDARD THAT A FED BANK CHAIRMAN AND A TREASURY SECRETARY SHOULD HAVE.

GEITHNER, PAULSON WOULD BE IN JAIL. THEIR WEALTH SHOULD BE TAKEN TO COMPENSATE THE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF WORLDWIDE INVESTORS WHOM THEY HELP THE CROOKS TO SWINDLE.

MANY ARE WITHOUT THEIR LIFELONG SAVINGS, WITHOUT THEIR HOUSE, THEIR JOBS. AND GEITHNER DARED TO LIE TO OBAMA AND STEP UP THE SCAPEGOATING OF ASIAN COUNTRIES, WHICH ARE THEIR BIGGEST PREY IN THEIR PREDATORY COVERUP.

GEITHNER SHAMED AMERICA. WE SHOULD IMPEACH PAULSON, GEITHNER.

WE SHOULD CHANGE THE LAW SO THAT THESE GUYS SHOULD NOT HAVE “ADMINISTRATIVE IMMUNITY” WITHIN OUR EXECUTIVE BRANCH OF THE GOVERNMENT. THAT’S THE ONLY WAY AMERICA CAN REGAIN OUR CREDIBILITY.
TRUTH BE TOLD: CHINA SHOULD HAVE BEEN BANGING ON THE TABLE IN 2008 ABOUT ALL THE BONDS DUMPING IN HONG KONG AND SHANGHAI BY LEHMAN WITH THE DIRECT HELP OF PAULSON, GEITHNER AND BERNANKE.

THEY SHAMED ALL AMERICANS. THEY WILL GO DOWN IN HISTORY AS WITHOUT MORALS, HYPOCRITICAL, SHAMELESS SCAPEGOATERS.

HIS CURRENT TACTIC OF PRETENDING TO BE A “SAVIOR”, BY SAYING THAT HE SHOULD HAVE BAILED OUT EVERYONE, IS ANOTHER SCAM THAT AMERICANS WILL NO LONGER FALL FOR.

HE IS THE ONE OF VERY FEW THAT CAUSED THE FINANCIAL CRISIS. AND HE TRIED TO LIE AND CHEAT AMERICANS BY ACTING AS IF HE SHOULD HAVE SAVED MORE!!!
WOLF IN SHEEP SKIN– THAT’S GEITHNER AND PAULSON!

They are, now that it’s “safe”, slowly bringing it to light without causing pandemonium. I just hope that quiet but forceful change comes next.

That is a CRIME. If this is NOT a case for RICO, not sure what would suffice. The saving of the Western Financial system was and is based on transferring the savings of middle class to the banks balance sheet. Just about every indicator was manipulated to save our Western Ideals of ‘free markets’! Look at a 6 month of LIBOR today and tell me it is NOT manipulated, albeit by the ECB and the LTRO function.
The FED, ECB, BOJ have neutered EVERY INDICATOR of ‘Market Stress’ over the past 3 months(VIX, 10yr Treasury, Gold,Yen/Dollar,Euro/Dollar)…..this will END VERY BADLY!!!

When HISTORY is written…and it will…2008-2014 will go down as the GREATEST LIE AND FRAUD ever told in mankind. If you believe Geithner and LIBOR are isolated cases….you have NOT been observing the correct stress indicators….one hint….the ECB is already buying Spanish and Italian Debt outside ANY announced program (ESFS, ESM)!
Thanks Bethany…always enjoy your writing…seem to ask the questions with an answer that NOBODY wants to provide or hear!!

Bethany – kudos! You deserve a Pulitzer.
