Bloomberg: Former US SecTreas Floats Idea Of Sustained Government Stock Purchases

“Dude, this shit isn’t working at all.”

“Yeah, I know. More cowbell?”

“Nah. These corporate guys are bitching about how little room we are leaving them to act in the market.”

“No shit. And consumers? Even with ninja zero-percent car loans, these yokels don’t have a pot left to piss in.”

“OK. So stealth fascism isn’t working. You know what that means?”

“No, man. It’ll never fly. Even we can’t pull that off.”

“Pussy. It’ll work. Trust me. Joe Six-Pack’s only worried about whether he can get his Zoloft, his generic-puke domestic beer, and his vape in his mouth at the same time as he’s juggling Faceberg, porn, and sportsball on his dumb-ass bought-on-credit $900 smartphone. They won’t even know it, and even if they catch a glimmer, they won’t know what it means. Government owns the means of production, my ass. We produce nothing in this dying old bitch anymore, except debt, debtors, and deadbeats – I tell you: nothing.”

“The institutionals will love it, that’s for sure. And the pension plans? It’s their only freaking prayer. If we give the G-man a heads-up, maybe he won’t try to whipsaw us, at least. But Dicky…”


“If you fuck me on this, I will beat your ass.”

“You and who else there, stick arms? Stealth communism — here we come!”

  1. eh…what?? 85% of the stock on the NY Exchange is currently owned by the (((NY Banks))) – JPM, GoldmanSachs, Citi, etc. They juice each others holdings each day with gubmint (Federal Reserve) funnymoney. It’s a top-down Ponzi and has been for years.

    eh? the “bull” market is just that:

    This is the equivalent of recommending that a survivalist forego food storage and, instead, consume his own excrement…

    • Their a plague of locusts after every kernel of our seed corn now. Unchecked they will strip mine this country to the bone. Because for intents and purposes our seed corn of intrinsic personal wealth in the form of personal property is about all that remains of considerable prosperity which has heretofore remained untouchable. I’m talking the most basic forms of tangible wealth in the form that isn’t fiat, or directly connected to fiat. Fiat is a dead horse beaten so hard it is like a road kill deer compressed to a paper thin red smear on I95. The next phase is how to transfer that intrinsic personal property and wealth into a liquid form suitable for laundering through the belly of the beast.
      This greed and averse is gone past known or experienced scale in human history. There are no parallels. It is something entirely unprecedented, in both it’s scope and it’s collective function. There is also the beast factor. It is transforming from a wealth transfer organized crime regime into a monster of direct theft, it’s appetite for other peoples money and other forms of wealth is insatiable, it is into the realm of greed where the existence of that greed itself is the survival of that greed by all costs and any means required to feed the monster. That is reflected in the scale of illegitimacy of the political class, who now exist to survive their illegitimacy by whatever means neccessary.
      Eventually this gets to the stage where they use direct force and guns to just take everything. There will be no pretense of stealth about it. Because at that point, everything nailed down they couldn’t get their meathooks on previously, can only be ripped out of the peoples hands by force. I’m saying, what else is left to steal? Their like meth heads in a rage ripping out the sheetrock in a derelict abandoned single wide to get the copper pipes to scrap for a gram of crank.
      I’m not saying that above because it will happen, but it is what happens naturally when these thieves remain unchecked in the course of their actions.

      • <–You are correct, and it is happening. Recently I perused a local paper here in New England and found 22 "takings" of homes where the owners could no longer afford to stay current on their property taxes. The town was taking them under color of law. Now I am sure a percentage of those homes were crackheads and vagrants but I'm equally sure a percentage were just average folks who fell on bad times. The machine does't give a damn, they will be ground into state sausage regardless. Because they have to fund all those important public works projects right?

  4. Hope some, or best, all, recognize the following:
    “The masses continue with an appetite for benefits and the habit of receiving them by way of a rule of force and violence. The people, having grown accustomed to feeding at the expense of others and to depend on the property of others for their livelihood… institute the rule of violence; and now uniting their forces massacre, banish, and plunder, until they degenerate again into perfect savages and find once more a master and monarch.”

        Does to me, considering what is becoming so obvious.

  5. This equates to subversively federalizing companies.

  6. Third world Nationalizing, Socialism, communism, fascism, tyranny, Marxism, progressive, liberal. They all mean pretty much the same thing. When the elite are willing to float this garbage they think they have already won.

  8. A truly horrific idea. The .gov will make stock purchases based on POLITICS. You donate enough money to a certain party, .gov buys your stock. They won’t buy gun stocks, some of the most profitable companies in the country. The level of corruption this encourages is off the scale. And the economic bubble would be gigantic. The associated crash would be even bigger.

    It’s an admission form the government that nothing worked. They’re out of tricks. Here it comes.

  10. Just another inevitable step on the path to the cliff’s edge. The BIG GRAB is accelerating, and we will have a front seat in the fireworks that follow.

  11. What the hell do you guys think QE 1, 2, and 3 were all about? The only thing different here is that it will be QE to infinity… they just won’t stop printing money to cover the deficit and pump up the union retirement funds on Wall St. … ever.

    Only bad will come of it… the Keynesians/Socialists don’t really care how much a loaf of bread ultimately costs as long as they can keep the debt fueled economy and Wall St banksters afloat. Go look at the 2012 Presidential election donations by Wall St… they gave to BOTH candidates with a small edge to the second tyrant from Illinois.
