As I said to my spouse, the Firing of the inspector General the other day by agent orange, aka Rump, aka Don the con, I think has nothing to do with the long over impeachment, and much more to with the coming so-called ‘oversight’ of the massive Corporate bailout, [corporate Welfare].
Now it’s a free for all.

Yes, I was talking about the TARP funds.

Or they create the crisis …wait until our entire country looks like standing Rock. Military walking around in your backyard
Mr. Camp, your statement at about 6:30, that the 2008 TARP funds were limited to $700BL, while accurate, is also misleading.
In December 2011 the Levy Economics Institute of Bard College produced “Working Paper No. 698” that put forward a much larger dollar figure of bailouts generally (not limited to only TARP). That figure, per the working paper, is:
Not a typo. $29 Trillion.
Whatever oversight there might have been was swept away with a presidential signing statement. Per Nancy Pelosi . in an Interview with Colbert (at 3:20) https://youtu.be/UWBX9OR572E?t=176
I agree with every word ! And no you are not over-reacting!
The ‘elites’ must be pretty sure no one is paying attention. What this mess exposes is what I call the “scarcity ruse.” There’s a whimper or two from the media when the money printer roars for Wall Street. When the money printer is switched on to help ordinary working people the media air is smoggy with a clamor of “HOW ARE WE GOING TO PAY FOR THAT?” Hands are wrung and brows are furrowed. It’s all bullshit. Money is always there when the oligarchs weep, but we somehow run out when you and I need a little help. Ridiculous.
