If you read my blog at all you know I like conspiracies ;)
Today I decided to look and see how incumbent republican senators, who are up for reelection in the 2014 midterm, voted on the Yellen as FED chair issue. The results were pretty much what I expected to find..
This is, in part, how the matrix operates. And I think for the most part this sort of thing is easily predictable.
These elite "representatives" consider the American people to be stupid enough to be easily fooled on a regular basis. Make things just a bit complex and the average American will never be able to figure out what's going on. Politics all the time while the decisions that are truly important remain part of a grand bipartisan conspiratorial scheme.
So you might ask what that scheme is..
I'll tell you what *I* think it is..
In 2008 our economy in the United States collapsed, this time for good. All the large (Too Big To Fail) banks.. failed, insolvent, bankrupt. Unemployment was running at 700,000 job losses per month as corporations dumped workers in an effort to remain solvent / protect profits.
We no longer have a capitalist system in this country.. As G.W. Bush himself stated rather clearly in 2008..
BUSH; Well, I have obviously made a decision to make sure the economy doesn’t collapse. I’ve abandoned free market principles to save the free market system. I think when people review what’s taken place in the last six months, uh, and put it all in one, in one, (sigh), you know, in one package, they’re realize how significantly we have moved.
To my knowledge that statement has yet to be retracted, by anyone..
"how significantly WE have moved" < We indeed.. Who is we anyway? Perhaps the treasury? The [private] Federal Reserve Bank? Corporations?
And the "move" was indeed significant.. In the form of bailouts..
Rules (rule of law) were changed in order to artificially "prop up" failed banks (as seen here.. FASB Lets Banks Mark to Myth, Not Mark to Market) and Three non-bank businesses also received substantial TARP funds. These were AIG (the insurance giant), and General Motors and Chrysler. This included TARP I, II & III, all of which the American people were steadily resentful of.
Check these more critical articles about the bailouts and who benefitted..
Secrets and Lies of the Bailout - Rolling Stone
Neil Barofsky is the former inspector general of the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP).
He told Here & Now there is a “deep frustration that those perhaps most responsible for the crisis not only weren’t punished, they were rewarded for their conduct.”

Dig a little deeper here.. The Bailout: By The Actual Numbers
Clearly the response to the financial crisis was never at all about the American people. It was much more about robbing us blind to the benefit of banks and other corporations..

You can see here that republicans who find themselves facing the 2014 election voted no to yellen, for public consumption / political cover, while understanding completely that she would, without a doubt, be confirmed as the new chair(man) of the [private] Federal Reserve bank. (With the exception of always liberal leaning & or retiring senators (ie; Chambliss, Collins and Alexander)
The Federal Reserve is THE main player in all of this "prop up the rich and corporations and the poor and unemployed will be fine shenanigan..
Audit of the Federal Reserve Reveals $16 Trillion in Secret Bailouts
And, apparently, the Federal Reserve believes all that is required to "save the economy" is for a significant portion of the American people to continually accumulate ever more debt..
See: How government incetivises consumerism
And this bullshit continues to this very day where The ACA aka obamacare "law" is preparing to bail out insurance companies next (if open theft from the American populous via the mandating of the purchase of an individual product from a specific economic sector fails to perform as expected.)
As can be seen here, here and here
It's quite obvious that the elite have ALL of us by the short hairs..
