From “freedom fries” to french fried bailouts, bloody brit corpoRATe welfare backdoor handouts, and teutonic bankster oktoberfest bailout hangover
Here’s a suggestion for real hope, change and responsibility:
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
Well Cricketeers, there was screaming in some places on the internets concerning how much of the corpoRATe welfare giveaway packages the feckless appaRATchiks in washingtOOn were handing out like government cheese would go to banks outside the u s of a. Word is finally starting to trickle out, even though the thieving banksters are trying to play “don’t ask, don’t tell!” Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y and others have been both most insistent and successful in “outing” the names of overseas banks sucking at the us treasury trough. Here’s a few names that may surprise the supporters of the corpoRATe welfare bailout bill, and the amounts of us taxpayer cash they are reported to have received just via the bailout of corpoRATe welfare mother aig thus far:
Top recipients of CDS-related collateral via aig bailout:
- france’s societe generale, with $4.1 billion
- germany’s deutsche bank, with $2.6 billion
- france’s societe generale, $6.9 billion
- germany’s deutsche bank, $2.8 billion
- uk’s barclays, with $7 billion
- germany’s deutsche bank, with $6.4 billion
- france’s bnp paribas, with $4.9 billion
AIG payments to banks stoke bailout rage

WASHINGTON/NEW YORK (Reuters) – Goldman Sachs Group Inc and a parade of European banks were the major beneficiaries of $93 billion in payments from AIG — more than half of the U.S. taxpayer money spent to rescue the massive insurer.
The revelation on Sunday by American International Group Inc was another potential public relations nightmare, coming on the same weekend that the Obama administration expressed outrage over AIG’s plan to pay massive bonuses to the people in the very division that destroyed the company by issuing billions of dollars in derivatives insuring risky assets.
DAGNABIT! I was against giving these corpoRATe welfare bailouts to any of the corpoRATe criminal banksters. But it seems to me that even those who believed giving corpoRATe insurer aig a sack of taxpayer cash was a good idea, should have insisted that the us taxpayer funds so given would stay right here in the u s of a.
With all the talk early on and ongoing that a “unified world wide effort” of government trading partners would see to fixing the economic problems in their own countries, and such “local action” would lead to world wide “economic stability.” It’s seems to me that the french, germans and brits should have been giving their home banks the bailout dough, not the us taxpayer!
I’m waiting for the other shoe to drop. It’s only a matter of time before we find out that chinese banks got a sack of us taxpayer bailout cash, at the same time that the chinese government was lending the us treasury the money to fund these bailouts! Yeah, it’s only a matter of time before we find out that we are paying interest to the chinese government on debt incurred to bailout chinese banks!
In the mean time the us government continues to spend HUGE amounts of taxpayer money on bases and other military outlays defending europe. It’s time to close all bases not behind our own borders and reopen bases on us soil so we can return ALL our young people in uniform home. This will cut the pork barrel pentagon budget by 50% and allow the europeans the freedom to decide how much they need spend in their own defence.We also need a single payer national health care program that will cut health care costs by 50% and insure EVERYONE!
Here’s my FAVE endorsement for single payer universal national health care, from the neolib who now refuses to give it to us:
Let’s see, in the video statusQUObama had a step by step process to get a single payer health care plan:
- dems take back white house CHECK √
- dems take back senate CHECK √
- dems take back house o’reps CHECK √
- PAY UP BITCH! Mauhahahahahahahah
The ongoing ClapSotronics serving suggestion:
EAT THE FUCKING pig corpoRATe rich!
laBAMAnostra and laBUSHanostra agree:
- That the disaster of a war should continue indefinitely. laBAMAnostra has the same exit strategy as laBUSHanostra did, no exit strategy what so ever! The corpoRATe pigs agree the current war should be escalated and additional wars should be started whenever possible!
- That the waste, fraud, and abuse pork barrel spending on ever larger pentagon budgets should continue and money “should be no object” when it comes to the funding of military death and destruction! paygo my ass!
- That the thieving corpoRATe insurance companies (the rotten aig being only the tip of the corpoRATe iceberg in the insurance larceny business) should be able to continue to pocket almost half of our health care dollars via the waste fraud and abuse filled current “free market health care system.” This ripoff comes in the form of over the top corpoRATe insurer “administrative costs” and corpoRATe drug pusher profiteering even as the rest of us are badly served by their wealth care, NOT REALLY HEALTH CARE SYSTEM!
- That the wal-fare system (click this link to see how I defined the wal-fare system in an earlier post) started by the klinton klan co-presidents slick willy and hillary dillary doo (she a former walmart board member and both former co-presidents are now made members of laBAMAnostra) and made ever worse by the waste, fraud, and abuse pork barrel funding of so called “faith based” organizations should be able to continue to poverty pimp we poor folks into ever deeper poverty! Punitive policies that force us into slave labor, low wage “jobs” and sermons are no replacement for the basic human needs based system we should have!
- That the inherently dishonorable corpoRATe criminals should be allowed to continue to “self police” as the idiots in washingtOOn chant the tired deregulation mantra!
It’s time to put an end to deregulation and the kid glove wrist slap treatment they get by regulating the corpoRATeers and RICO statute CRIMINAL PROSECUTIONS OF THE corpoRATe THIEVES!
The Telepathic Crickets™ on the ClapSotronics editorial board and I piss on the ethically challenged international criminal bankster cartel and their neolib klinton klan hillbilly enablers!
The scientifically impossible I do right away
