Jim Cramer:  There is some weird strain of thought that CNBC got beaten by Senator Warren. I like the senator but she had NO impact. Sorry..

Too bad we can't judge for ourselves.

Using facts is a sneaky liberal thing to do.

Based on Jim Cramer's track record of being wildly wrong most of the time, I think we can still make that judgement.

And it was a tweet, too.  You can generally gauge his level of wrongness by how animated he is.

Most obvious sign of significant impact: talking heads claiming there was NO impact.

I saw it and let me tell you, there were several different CNBC personalities (with the too big to jail bank's arms stuck so far up their ass that they could taste the fingers) all on the receiving end of an epic simultaneous smackdown from Senator Warren.

She farking owned the lot of them.

I'll never watch any member of the NBC family of networks. They are all useless wastes of bits.

Also, my favorite, CNBC cited Continental Illinois. Here's why that bank failed:

"In May 1984, Continental Illinois became insolvent due, in part, to bad loans purchased from the failed Penn Square Bank N.A. of Oklahoma-loans for oil & gas producers and service companies and investors in the Oklahoma and Texas oil & gas boom of the late 1970s and early 1980s. Due diligence was not properly conducted by John Lytle, an executive in the Mid-Continent Division of oil lending, and other leading officers of the bank. Lytle later pleaded guilty to a count of defrauding Continental of $2.25 million and receiving $585,000 in kickbacks for approving risky loan applications. Lytle was sentenced to three and a half years in a federal prison. The Penn Square failure eventually caused a substantial run on the bank's deposits once it became clear Continental Illinois was headed for failure. Large depositors withdrew over $10 billion of deposits in early May 1984."

If anything this points out the need for further regulation.

jaylectricity: But the video is still available on NBC's website, right?


Yeah but NBC knows that no one views content there.
 
2013-07-19 09:32:58 AM  
Also I love the argument, "Regulations that prevent banks from making risky investments cannot prevent banks from taking risks".

What, if the bankers aren't allowed to leverage their deposits at a 12-1 ratio, they're all going get wasted and drive around the country all night, or have unprotected sex with hookers?  You can't tell banks what to do man, you're not their father!

It's a vague argument but there can be something to that.  Look at McCain/Feingold.  Great intentions, but resulted in a worse state of affairs than we had before it.  Regulation needs to be iron clad, or people will find ways around it and potentially make matters worse.

At least in this case we have real history to guide us in terms of effectiveness.

No, there isn't anything to it. It's an argument for anarchy disguised as wide-eyed innocence. "A bank will find ways around regulations, therefore there should be no regulations"? Please.

no no, we need to balance it out. 50 Warrens, 49 Kings, and 1 McCain
 
2013-07-19 09:54:37 AM  
What's funny is that instead of crafting some kind of factual rebuttal and spewing it out over the airwaves days later when the Senator can't instantly respond, they just take the video down instead.  I guess this means they realize she was right but it's "bad for business".
 
2013-07-19 09:54:41 AM  
Shockingly, Fox Business had a perfectly respectful interview with Senator Warren on Glass Steagall.

She was able to make her points without needing to issue three or four simultaneous smackdowns.

From what I have seen she farking owns everyone. I'm not the type that thinks about presidential elections too far in advance. But she would have destroyed any and all of the republican candidates clowns we saw in the primaries last year.

Personally I'd like to see her stay in the Senate for a very long time. That's Kennedy's seat and I feel he did far far more as a Senator than he could have as POTUS.

In this case?  No doubt.  I was speaking generally.  And note my use of "vague."

it's a trade off. Imagine the epic smackdown she could issue if she got to appoint the Attorney General in 2016.

The statute of limitations for bank fraud would still have a couple of years to go at that point.

She could absolutely biatch slap the people who presided over the fraudulent destruction of the global economy.

Instead of, you know, appointing a millionaire Wall Street defense attorney to be AG like Obama did.

It was pretty hilarious how the producers kept feeding that talkingpoint into the earpieces of the talkingheads no matter how many times she swatted it away.

Producer #1:  Okay, she's going on about Glass Stengal.  Standard operations and practices says we should counter with Continental Illinois now.

Producer #2: Oh shiat, she destroyed it.  What's step 2?

Producer #1:  Oh fark, there isn't a step 2 listed here.  Alright, you know what to do.   When all else fails fall back to the Power of Iteration and just keep bringing it up again.   Fark, it's been a while since we had this training.
 
2013-07-19 10:53:39 AM  
I need more info to be truly comfortable with the decision, but with what I know at this point, I'd vote for her.
