It never ceases to amaze me that politicians and their ilk can continue to lie and deceive and their minions and party talking heads will continue to "cover" for them. Paulson is one of the biggest liars out there and you have some on cnbc still saying what a "good job" he’s doing or "things change". Exhibit A:

"WASHINGTON (AP) - Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson told Congress on Tuesday that the administration remains firmly opposed to dipping into the government's $700 billion financial bailout fund for a $25 billion rescue package for Detroit's Big Three automakers, no matter how badly they need the help.

"There are other ways" to help battered automakers, Paulson told the House Financial Services Committeeas the bailout bill clung to life support on Capitol Hill.

Committee members grilled Paulson on the administration's stance that the $25 billion must come from separate legislation passed by Congress in September. The measure was designed specifically to help auto manufacturers retool their factories so they can make more fuel-efficient vehicles.

The $700 billion bailout plan enacted by Congress in October and signed into law by President George W. Bush did not envision that the program would be used to help rescue nonfinancial companies, Paulson said. "I believe the auto companies fall outside of that purpose."

At the same time, he testified, "I think it would be not a good thing, it would be something to be avoided, having one of the auto companies fail, particularly during this period of time." "

So we are going to throw 850 billion dollars down the drain "saving" the same idiots who got us into this dilemma, who produce NOTHING, who shuffle papers and assets from pile to pile and take a "management fee", who I wouldn’t trust with my kids bicycle, but a company that actually produces something that has some utility gets NOTHING! Now I’m against bailouts in general but the hypocrisy here is incredible. Three gigantic companies that have been in business for decades want less than a lousy 4 percent of the money and the Treasury Secretary says he can’t support that. Oh and by the way, ALL of these companies derive a majority of their profits from financing so his contention of being nonfinancial companies is bogus also.

How’s this for some truth:

"Greenspan Admits Fed Is Not Beholden To Any Government Agency

This week, former chairman of the Fed Reserve Alan Greenspan in an interview aired on PBS' News Hour was asked by Jim Lehrer what should be the proper relationship between a chairman of the Fed and The President of the United States. In a shockingly honest tone Greenspan replies,

"Well, first of all, the Federal Reserve is an independent agency, and that means, basically, that there is no other agency of government which can overrule actions that we take. So long as that is in place and there is no evidence that the administration or the Congress or anybody else is requesting that we do things other than what we think is the appropriate thing, then what the relationships are don't, frankly, matter."

This issue with the Fed being above government is one of the key things We The People need to understand in order to wake up to the awful situation that we have found ourselves in. Our wealth, our labor, and anything we gain buy being productive has been stolen from us since the Federal Reserve took over our money system in the 1913.

Most people believe the Fed to be a government agency overlooked by the President of the United States."

And indeed, most people would be wrong. The Federal Reserve is a rogue INDEPENDENT Company with a very thin connection to the U.S. government. They really answer to no one as they don’t have public meetings and have never disclosed their true owners. They have hijacked the coinage rights from the CONgress and now basically do what they want as Greenspan, in a rare moment of honesty, says above. They can do ANYTHING they want.

Watch this video for the state of our financial "press" as they deny something that is an absolute fact and has been so since 1987:

If you believe in an uncontrolled press after watching that, then I don’t know what to do for you, but they have medications that can wake you up. "Internet rumors", come on, this is an established group that can’t be denied. The government basically "sets" the interest rates but they wouldn’t interfere in the stock market? Craziness, and so indicative of the corporate control of anything coming out of the so-called free press.

Speaking of liars, from lemetropolecafe.com:

"Bill,
CASE CLOSED. This morning, at the very end of being cross-examined by Congressman Ron Paul, Ben Bernanke admitted that the subject of gold only comes up in the context of the SALES which the central banks are planning.

Anyone who continues to deny that the price of gold is manipulated by governments/central banks is delusional. The real question is this: when will these guys run out of Ft. Knox melt bars to sell? When that day comes, perhaps it will be Hallelujah Time!

Ron Paul asked again if he had discussed gold with other CB's. He responded only in discussions of planned sales!

Now that is interesting. The US is supposedly not involved in any gold sales but Bernanke discusses gold sales with other Central Banks. It was a shame that Ron Paul's allotted time was up at this point."

So the Federal Reserve only talks about gold sales? That is rather curious in that they are only supposed to protect the purchasing power of the dollar. How’s that going? Only down 97% since they took over, I guess that’s not too bad, still 3% to "protect". Let’s face facts, there is absolutely NOTHING you can believe from officials anymore. It is now a constant stream of lies and half-truths, which leave the public basically without a compass.  You have some gold, don't you?
