Today in front of the House Financial Services Committee, Timmy Geithner and Ben Bernanke sat as usual; ambiguously answering questions. Bernanke's visits to the committee are usually characterized by bravado and assurances of hard work and then much sweating and stammering during Dr. Ron Paul's statement and questions.
Today it was extremely refreshing to see Congresswoman Michele Bachmann grill these two traitors. She repeatedly asked them what right the Constitution gives them for their actions regarding AIG. Right away, this made them both chippy and they asserted, "The Congress gave us the right!" After the back and forth bantering on this subject, Bachmann delivered a great question. She asked whether the Federal Reserve and the U.S. was considering moving away from the dollar as the reserve currency of the world in favor of a global currency. They both denied this with incredible confidence and speed.
It is very unlikely that Bernanke and Geithner have not been part of meetings discussing the possibility of a global currency. The time just hasn't been right for whatever reason to let teh American people know. It is as if they believe the U.S. exists on some island bereft of all media. Leaders around the world have been begging for a new global order. British P.M. Gordon Brown has been pleading for a new world order. China has been the most recent superpower to suggest a new world order. Why is the U.S. acting so coy? The U.S. is definitely scared of the repercussions of such a statement. Look for Obama to try to break the news to the American public tonight (Tues, 3/24) on a purposely constructed question by some sycophant in the media.
