Geithner’s Appointment Book: Taking Orders from the International Bankers
October 8, 2009
Timothy Geithner, Treasury Secretary, always takes calls from his bankster bosses on Wall Street, according to an Associated Press report.
“Even during his most frenzied days, when Congress is demanding answers or the president himself is calling, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner makes time to talk to a select group of powerful Wall Street bankers,” write Matt Apuzzo and Daniel Wagner. “When they call, Geithner answers. He has spoken with them immediately after hanging up with President Barack Obama and before heading up to Capitol Hill, between phone calls with senators and after talking with the Federal Reserve chairman.”
AP obtained Geithner’s appointment calendars through a FOIA request. The calendars reveal what readers of Infowars already knew — Geithner and the Treasury Department take orders from Citigroup Inc., JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Goldman Sachs Group Inc.
Geithner is a consummate Wall Street insider. He was the president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. He was a Senior Fellow in the International Economics department of the Council on Foreign Relations, a member of the Group of Thirty (a Rockefeller operation), worked for Kissinger Associates, and is a member of the Trilateral Commission. Lawrence Summers was his mentor. He is a Robert Rubin protégé. Rubin, Clinton’s Treasury Secretary, was Chairman of Citigroup. Summers, also a Clinton Treasury Secretary, was Chief Economist for the World Bank and was tapped by Obama to be the director of the White House National Economic Council. Geithner also sits on the board of the Bank for International Settlements, the mega-globalist outfit that enjoys immunity from virtually all regulation, scrutiny and accountability.
“Geithner had more contacts with Citigroup than he did with Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., the lawmaker leading the effort to approve Geithner’s overhaul of the financial system. Geithner’s contacts with [Lloyd Blankfein, CEO of Goldman Sachs] alone outnumber his contacts with Sen. Christopher Dodd, D-Conn., chairman of the Senate Banking Committee.”
But of course. Goldman Sachs is the Grand Bubble Machine of the globalists and the banksters. “Goldman Sachs has played a crucial role in creating every market bubble since the 1920s — and has profited from not only the bubbles, but from the crash that followed as well,” writes Daniel Tencer. “Goldman was central to creating are the Wall Street stock bubble in the 1920s, which led to the Great Depression; the tech-stock bubble of the late 1990s, which ended in the 2001 recession; the housing bubble of the past decade, which resulted in the current economic crisis; the oil price run-up last summer, when oil shot up to $140 a barrel, likely helping tilt the entire world into recession.”
Goldman stacked the Bush and Obama administrations with minions in order to profit from the bankster bailout. It is the motivating force behind the cap-and-trade swindle now taking form. “Goldman started pushing hard for cap-and-trade long ago, but things really ramped up last year when the firm spent $3.5 million to lobby climate issues,” writes Matt Taibbi for Rolling Stone.
The Federal Reserve, a wholly owned subsidiary of Goldman Sachs and the international bankers, is the primary instrument for creating so-called bubbles and economic depressions. “Using a central bank to create alternate periods of inflation and deflation, and thus whipsawing the public for vast profits, had been worked out by the international bankers to an exact science,” writes the late Gary Allen. “Having built the Federal Reserve as a tool to consolidate and control wealth, the international bankers were now ready to make a major killing. Between 1923 and 1929, the Federal Reserve expanded (inflated) the money supply by sixty-two percent. Much of this new money was used to bid the stock market up to dizzying heights.”
“It [the depression] was not accidental. It was a carefully contrived occurrence… The international bankers sought to bring about a condition of despair here so that they might emerge as the rulers of us all,” declared Louis McFadden, Chairman of the House Banking and Currency Committee in the 1930s.
But you wouldn’t know this if all you read is the Associated Press. “There is nothing inherently wrong with senior Treasury Department officials speaking regularly with industry executives, or even with the secretary keeping tabs on the market’s biggest players, even though critics say Geithner risks succumbing too much to these bankers’ self-interested worldview.”
Succumbing? Timothy Geithner is instrumental to the bankster scam. He is a key player in a long-running bankster plot specifically designed to “reign supreme over everyone, everywhere, as one whole super-national control mechanism,” as Montagu Norman of the Bank of England wrote in 1942.
