The nuclear age requires a special type of management…. a management of mind, judgment, tolerance and rationality, a management dedicated to human values, to world peace, and to the development of the human situation.

BLAST FROM THE PAST

At Each day Kos on this date in 2010—Financial Outrage du Jour: Emails Uncovered:

Hugh Son at Bloomberg experiences that e-mails pressured into the sunshine present that Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, as president of the Federal Reserve Financial institution of New York, elements of whose job is supposedly to be curbing bankers’ riskiest impulses, advised American Worldwide Group to hide details about its funds to banks whereas the monetary disaster was unfolding:

AIG mentioned in a draft of a regulatory submitting that the insurer paid banks, which included Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Societe Generale SA, 100 cents on the greenback for credit-default swaps they purchased from the agency. The New York Fed crossed out the reference, in keeping with the e-mails, and AIG excluded the language when the submitting was made public on Dec. 24, 2008. The e-mails have been obtained by Consultant Darrell Issa, rating member of the Home Oversight and Authorities Reform Committee. …

“It seems that the New York Fed intentionally pressured AIG to limit and delay the disclosure of vital info,” mentioned Issa, a California Republican. Taxpayers “deserve full and full disclosure below our nation’s securities legal guidelines, not the withholding of politically inconvenient info.”

You will not hear any applause on this nook for the obstructionist, ultra-wealthy Darrell Issa. His self-funded recall petition encumbered us Californians with Arnold Schwarzenegger within the governorship, a place Issa himself hoped to seize. His assist for English-Solely legal guidelines, right-wing assaults on ACORN, dissing of the 9/11 widows and different antics since his self-funded marketing campaign put him in Congress epitomize the politics progressives are duty-bound to grind into mud.

However, frankly, if the disclosures in these emails are what Bloomberg and Reuters and others are saying, congressional Democrats should be on prime of this situation. Should we rely on the richest man in Congress to have interaction in an oligarch vs. oligarch battle to provide us the thin about what is going on on?
