Poll: should Geithner serve time?

Update March 16, 2010: Well, few seem ready to try or send Tim Geithner to jail over financial improprieties according to the results of this poll so far. But you, lone reader, may still vote if you wish, and leave a comment if you will!

The cat’s out of the bag! As it turns out, former NY-Fedster Timothy Geithner knew very well that Lehman Brothers’ were ‘cooking the books’ and engaging in massive amounts of fraud prior to their controversial bankruptcy filing by using ‘creative bookkeeping’ and such.

Here’s an article by Mike Whitney detailing the shortcomings of Treasury Secretary Timothy Geitner and you may wish to check it out before you cast your vote.

In fact, I’d recommend reading it anyway, poll or no poll. Feel free!

Oct 9 is D-Day for Lehman Bros derivatives

Let George Washington explain about this Thursday being D-Day for Lehman Brothers’ auction (D for ‘derivatives’) and how much hinges on the auction’s outcome in spite of anything Paulson and Bernanke have done or might do.

And if you read George’s last paragraph, you’ll see that Oct 23 is D-Day for Washington Mutual.

Oct 23?

Oct 23, 1907 is the 101st anniversary of the day top financier J. P. Morgan said enough’s enough and rescued America’s financial patootie, although there was more than met the eye concerning that panic, too…like the problems of NY’s Knickerbocker Trust.

“This is the place to stop this trouble!” J. P. exclaimed, yet Neptune had opposed his natal Jupiter on Sept 30, 1907. And he was enjoying a fresh Jupiter Return which had recently occurred on Oct 1, 1907! Hmmm.

Noel Tyl calls them “Jupiter Reward Cycles.” (See J. P.’s Page in the sidebar column – there’s a link to Daniel Gross’ article on the subject of Oct 23, 1907 – the Panic of 1907 – as it relates to 2008.)

Well, 2008’s most powerful banker is Jamie Dimon, J. P.’s successor of sorts as head of the firm descending from the House of Morgan. The Robber Barons just keep steam rollin’ along, don’t they?

Now I turn you over to George Washington:

View from abroad on Wall St collapse

Will the US continue to be seen as a beacon of free enterprise after Bush-Cheney get done driving it into the ground?

Here are some international views where they must wonder if our financial collapse will reach their shores. You’ll find the word ‘betrayal’ mentioned frequently, as in, ‘I feel betrayed by Lehman’:

MSM: uh…the sky has fallen…who knew?

The MSM Jumps on the Economic Bandwagon

By Kathy Sanborn

So the US economy is on the brink? Yawn. Tell me something I didn’t know at least two years ago.

Now the mainstream media have been given the green light to announce, bold as you
please, that we are in for some pretty tough times, but Internet news and blog
readers have known about our faltering financial system for a long, long time.
Now, in the mainstream press, it has become popular to state the obvious: the
country is broke.

And astrologers have been telling the news for years, too!

With the massive publishing failure going on at Blogger again today (to which its owners have yet to respond or repair – perhaps they’re busy as bees now) it seems I’m fortunate to have published one entry last evening concerning Lehman Brothers crisis of 1984. Article’s link is in previous post…

This economic crisis falls under the Terror Promoters campaign – kind of a Code Chicken Yellow, would you say?

Well, at least tonight’s the night I’ll see Craig Ferguson and forget my woes for an hour or so…wish YOU, lone reader, could come!

Lehman Brothers crisis of 1984: lessons learned?

You may or may not remember but Lehman Brothers was in a big pickle back in 1984, which brings  Reagan Republicans into the crisis picture to join John McCain’s lack of economic savvy a la 2008:

http://starsoverwashington.blogspot.com/2008/09/lehman-brothers-crisis-of-1984.html

2008 minus 1984 = two Jupiter cycles…so let’s all repeat the Republican’s Jupiter Mantra: ‘Every day in every way I’m getting better and better’ – as if expansion never has to end, and the piper never has to be fully paid.

The Solar Eclipses of 1984 are the 10 North (May 30; 9Gem) and 4 South (Nov 22; 1Sag):

4N: illusions, separations, restraints, inhibitions, and restrictions are the hallmarks of this Series; events cause blockages which result in misjudgment of situations or strength; best advice is to wait until Eclipse passes before taking any real action.

Last manifested June 10, 2002 (20Gem)…Pre-natal Eclipse Series of Israel (May 14, 1948; 4:00 pm eedt; Tel Aviv.)

4S: very strong emotional feelings concerning money and/or relationships; anger, lust; sense of fatedness as we’re caught up in events beyond personal control; could be a sudden desire to finish a relationship; emotions are blocked or checked in some way leading to much frustration; avoid rash actions until issues settle down. (Brady’s ‘Predictive Astrology.’)

Last manifested Dec 4, 2002 (11Sag58 conj US natal ASC~Sibly, and conj Dec 30, 1999’s Great Conjunction of Pluto and Chiron~plutocracy; corporatism)…Pre-natal Eclipse Series of the Bush-Cheney Iraq Invasion 2003.

Needless to say, Bush-Cheney did not avoid rash actions.

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
