Why the Bailout Vote Failed / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Walter_Brasch

The Republican leaders of the House of Representatives grabbed a half dozen bags of sincerity, looked directly into every TV camera they could find, and lied. The House had just defeated, 228–205, a bipartisan $700 billion bailout bill. But it was the Democrats who were the subject of vicious rhetoric.

Wall Street Mega-Crash: The Last Bank Standing / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Steve_Selengut

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDateline Washington, October 19th (get it?) 2010: the Peoples Bank & Trust of America has now established itself as the only bank of any kind in the USA, totally owned and managed by the US House of Representatives. A 2/3 majority must now approve all investment banking transactions; your district representative's staff reviews individual mortgage applications; and all 401(k), IRA, and remaining employer pension assets have been rolled into the Social Security Slush Fund.

Bernanke and Paulson in the Dark on Bailout Impact / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Mick_Phoenix

Pre Vote Commentary - Welcome to the Weekly Report. This week we use the words of Ben Shalom Bernanke to describe why the $700Billion bailout will fail. I am going to assume the Bailout is enacted in one form or another and is probably announced around the Far East market opening times. However, there is a possibility that if Congress has not agreed then no soothing words will be forthcoming and a crash in share prices is used to "galvanise" action. We shall see.

How To Stop A Run On The Banks / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe global banking system has frozen up. There is no trust between banks and there is no trust by depositors of banks. This has caused a run on the banks, and has led to the failure of Washington Mutual and Wachovia. Internationally, several large banks have failed.

Bloomberg is reporting Libor Rises Most on Record After U.S. Congress Rejects Bailout .

In print and as a TV talking head—like on Chris Matthews' Hardball late last week—Pearlstein is one of the foremost media cheerleaders for the $700 billion Wall Street bailout bill.

Left-Right Combo By Opponents Put Plan on the Ropes.

The defeat in Congress of a proposed $700 billion economic-rescue package followed an intense outpouring of voter anger, fanned by politicians, interest groups and media on the left and right, that overwhelmed calls from the president and top lawmakers to pass the deal.

Republicans Defy Bush and Vote NO to Socialist Bailout Bill / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Richard_C_Cook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFINALLY, someone said “No” to the criminal gang that runs the U.S. economy when the House voted down the Bush-Paulson $700 billion Wall Street bailout plan by a vote of 228-205.

Shame on the Democrats! Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, and Majority Whip Rahm Emanuel delivered “yea” votes from 60 percent of Democratic House members and thereby gave the bill the only chance of passage it had.

Financial Catastrophe Entire Global Financial System in Collapse / Politics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Stephen_Lendman


Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe crime of the century. The greatest one ever. Author Danny Schechter calls it "Plunder." The title of his important new book on the subprime and overall financial crisis. Economist Michael Hudson and others refer to a kleptocracy. A Ponzi scheme writ large. Maybe an out-of-control Andromeda Strain. An economic one. Deadly. Unrecallable. Science fiction now real life. Potentially catastrophic. World governments trying to contain it. Trying everything but not sure what can work. Maybe only able to paper it over for short-term relief. Buy time but in the end vindicate the maxim that things that can't go on forever, won't.

Bailout Plan No Solution to America's Ponzi Scheme Economy / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Mike_Stathis

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRisks of the Proposed Bailout: Part II - Would I support a bailout under any circumstances? Maybe. But only if there was a clear plan laid forth with specific guidelines and it was to be executed by credible and competent leaders. And only after I saw dozens of bank, Wall Street, and mortgage CEOs and others have their assets stripped and sent to prison. But all of Washington has been way behind the curve the entire time. And they have not raised the issue of accountability as I define it.

Financial Crisis Bailout or Not, Economic Depression is Upon Us / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Mike_Stathis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRisks of the Proposed Bailout: Part I - McCain, along with Paulson, Bernanke, Bush and others are using scare tactics hoping to rush the approval of this historic banking bailout plan. Threats of a “disaster” and a “severe economic crisis” have been interpreted by the media as a “depression” if the bill is not passed immediately. Politicians continue to scare the public stating that without a bailout, pension and 401(k) plans will be threatened. Are the conditions very serious? Definitely. The point is that they are so serious that a bailout won't do much at this point other than waste taxpayer money with no real accountability. Finally, as far as I can tell, this bailout really doesn't do much if anything to help taxpayers.

Mainstream Media's Failure to Understand the Credit Crunch / Politics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Gerard_Jackson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt's is a rule of the universe that every effect has a cause. And so it is with the current financial crisis. Instead of starting with those economic theories -- that should be rightly called fallacies -- we need to take heed of the unfortunate fact that the vast majority of people are getting their information from the media. I say unfortunate because not only are the great majority of journalists incapable of explaining the processes that brought about the crisis, they are also outrageous political bigots who see it as their duty to blame every conservative politician in sight, even if it means lying.

World of Unreal Finance Hitting the Real Economy / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: David_Chu

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“It's not the economy, stupid!” - Bill Clinton's campaign slogan was: “It's the economy, stupid!”

Actually that was James Carville's maxim and battle cry for the 1992 presidential election. Mr. “Ragin' Cajun” Carville, as you probably don't remember, was the commander-in-chief of Bill Clinton's first campaign for the White House. He was and is married to Mary Joe Matalin who happened to be working on George H.W. Bush's 1992 re-election campaign! Ms. Matalin was also an assistant to President George W. Bush and a special counselor to Vice President Dick Cheney until 2003.

Banking System in Meltdown, Fed Fights to Keep Dead Banks Alive / Politics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe financial system is blowing up. Don't listen to the experts; just look at the numbers. Last week, according to Reuters, "U.S. banks borrowed a record amount from the Federal Reserve nearly $188 billion a day on average, showing the central bank went to extremes to keep the banking system afloat amid the biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression." The Fed opened the various "auction facilities" to create the appearance that insolvent banks were thriving businesses, but they are not. They're dead; their liabilities exceed their assets.

Socialist Republican Corruption of Capitalist Free Market Mechanisms / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Money_and_Markets

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJack Crooks writes: You can't possibly have hidden yourself from the news of the $700-billion planned bailout that's working through Congress this week. And I won't mince words — I consider it a big slap in the face for the free market system.

Henry Paulson repeated over and over again exactly how agitated, disgusted, annoyed, infuriated, angered, embarrassed, and irritated he felt about asking for this amount of money, or any money at all. Sounds sincere if you stop it right there.
