My god, this is ABSURD.

Bernake has completely lost control. Now, were down to these ridiculous Hilsenrath articles to try to manipulate the markets? How is this even legal? Why is the SEC not engaged on this garbage?

Hilsenrath is nothing more than a soulless, vapid, puppet for the Fed. I don’t know how much he’s getting paid, but I hope it’s worth his dignity. Because that’s never coming back. He and Leisman can hang out on the beach with their ill-gotten paychecks and towel snap each other all day.

I believe there is nothing the Fed won’t do to avoid the economy going into recession including buying stocks…which means we will remain on this course until we crash and fall into a prolonged depression.

Good for a big POP in the market.

And Bernake and Wall Street wonder why retail won’t touch this smoldering pile of corrupt trash with a 30 foot pole.

Of course, the SEC is allowing the big players to rape the system rotten again.

Let me guess, there’s a friggin’ truckload of SPX puts at 1,600 and Ben needs a plausible excuse to ramrod the it over the mark to hump the put holders.


Here comes the 1,600.01 close.

What a patsy this guy is. Of course, I’d love to know how many call option he and his cronies placed just before this was published. Naturally, we’ll never know.

Zimbabwe level corruption, at this point.

I’d sure love to know how much Jon Hilsenrath just profited, personally, from this article. I wonder if he’ll show his own trading activity.

He doesn’t violate securities laws, so it shouldn’t be a problem.

Don’t mind Hilsenrath trying render the Fed guiltless, but the reason the markets plummeted was because of the rapidly rising interest rates imposed by banks, which Bernanke said nothing to dissuade.

The Fed’s problem is that it’s strategy is being subverted by the banks and it is not providing the leadership necessary to get them in line with its own strategy. What frightens investors is that this looks too much like 2008 with the banks subverting government strategy for economic recovery for their own gains without any collaboration between them.

Hilsenrath missed the whole real dynamic of what happened.

Instead of simply bitching, contact every congresscritter you can to put Hilsenrath in front of a committee hearing.
Also, boycott WSJ advertisers and tell them exactly why. Hilsenrath gotta spouse? Find out where she works and id the place and call for a boycott, etc., till she’s fired. Siblings, parents, associates-do the same. Social
ostracizing, shaming and economic ruination are underappreciated tactics these days.

John Hilsenrath is the financial equivalent of the Vichy French government in WWII. He has sacrificed his soul to Hell so he can continue to fellate the Fed and the rest of the banking cartel. What a pathetic excuse for an American.

Fed may be reading too much from the market. Step away from the market and concentrate on the economy, not the stock market. They are not the one and the same. There is already more than enough money pumped into the markets (with SOMA approaching 25% of GDP and majority positions in may debt securities).

How out of touch can Bernake be to think this will be soothing to retail investors.

This just reeks of desperation and speaks to have truly fragile and fraudulent the situation is. But, that’s always the problem with academics. They simply don’t ‘get it’.

The more of this crap they do, the worse it is and the more it becomes apparent how utterly awful the situation is.

Clueless. Completely and dreadfully clueless.

Get Real: There is no Bat Phone going from Bernanke’s office to Hilsenrath’s. Bernanke does not give any privileged communication to Hilsenrath. Neither does anyone else at the Fed.

The idea that Bernanke or anyone else at the Fed does is simply a public relations stunt to pimp clicks and sell papers. That the markets actually react to this kind of inane, fatuous stunt only demonstrates how irrational they can be.

If it really bothers you, the sweetest revenge you can take is not to click on Hilsenrath’s postings. Otherwise, take them for what their worth and let it go at that.

Ben’s overly rosy picture of economic recovery was a direct message to the banks: “Raise the interest rates!”

The banks are now making plenty of money off their loans at current interest rates and the offshoot is that the Fed needs to stop the low interest rates it charges them immediately.

Not only do the banks deserve no more support from the Fed turning their declining assets into cash for them – they do not deserve it – and they do non need it.

Stop QE NOW!!!

In addition to propping up stock prices with outright purchases, just wait till you see the increasingly outrageous governmental manipulation of the GDP number (so many ways to do it–and necessary in an environment of creeping interest rates). It’ll make your head spin.

Hilsenrath, you smirking SOB, seriously, when were you given the order to write this? Yesterday after the close? Timely release, you managed to pump the S&P 14 or so off the lows. Hopefully the market will see this for the BS it is, and make new lows, and hopefully your boy Bernanke will lose a few more hairs in the process, for what he has done.

Maybe you can release ANOTHER article re-emphasizing that the market should be going up?

Make sure you really, really, really make it clear that everyone misunderstood what came out Bernake’s own mouth yesterday.
