Ben Shalom Bernanke = Quince, Edward (Mr. QE)!

October 10, 2014

Our esteemed Fed Chairman, who served America from 2006 to 2013, adopted the pseudonym Edward Quince to cover-up his identity (it appears) during the 2008 financial crisis and after (within select emails). If we place the last name first we get the name: Quince, Edward (QE). Ben Bernanke was Mr. QE. Following is what the Wall Street Journal reported today:

Our Hero in 2008 is now revealed as using a metaphysical secret ‘identity’ (a pseudonym with no objective existence in space/time reality). This is according to today’s Wall Street Journal (Oct. 10, 2014)!

Edward Quince was arguably the most powerful person in the world in the fall of 2008, with the fate of financial markets resting on his high-stakes decisions. It turns out he didn’t actually exist. Edward Quince was the pseudonym then–Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke used on emails when he was conferring with colleagues during the financial crisis. The false name was revealed as evidence as part of a class-action lawsuit against the government by shareholders of American International Group Inc. AIG, -0.48%  , which received a giant Fed-backed bailout as it teetered toward collapse. A Fed spokeswoman, who confirmed Bernanke’s use of the pseudonym, wouldn’t say why he was using an alias. She said the name didn’t have any particular significance. A Justice Department lawyer, Kenneth Dintzer, introduced emails to and from Quince as evidence in the case on Wednesday, blowing the cover on the world’s perhaps first undercover, super-secret central banker.

What does this new revelation reveal about our esteemed monetary leader and QE originator? First of all, why would Ben Shalom Bernanke desire to use a false name while negotiating the bail-out deals with AIG and others? What was his mindset during this time period? Why the name QE (Quince, Edward). Where did this ‘name’ derive from? ONLY Ben Shalom Bernanke knows the answer! Thoughts are ‘private’ until revealed by the person holding the ‘thoughts’. Will he eventually reveal his inner metaphysical thoughts? Did he think that he could ‘cover-up’ his dealings and bail-outs via the use of a ‘false’ name? Who knows the thinking of the most powerful Monetary Authority since Mayer Amschel Bauer (Rothschild),  a German banker and the founder of the Rothschild banking dynasty, which is believed to have become the wealthiest family in human history. 

Additional commentary  (from the WSJ) which was revealed yesterday at the trial of shareholders over the AIG affair included the following:

A Fed spokeswoman, who confirmed Mr. Bernanke’s use of the pseudonym, said the name didn’t have any particular significance. The trial has blown the cover on the world’s perhaps first undercover, super-secret central banker. Last week, Fed general counsel Scott Alvarez testified that Mr. Bernanke had used the email pseudonym while at the central bank “to make sure that he didn’t get extraneous emails.”  A search of other records shows at least one public reference to Mr. Quince before now. In a hearing of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee in January 2010, Rep. Spencer Bachus (R., Ala.) read a piece of an email dated March 2009, citing Mr. Geithner (by then the U.S. Treasury Secretary) and William Dudley of the New York Fed: “Secretary Geithner e-mailed William Dudley and Edward Quince, and he said, ‘Where are you on the AIG counterparty disclosure issue?’ You know, are you for disclosing or not?”

The email apparently went on a screen at the hearing, a transcript of the event suggests, but there was no other mention of Mr. Quince after that. Edward Quince doesn’t exactly seem like the type of name you pull out of a hat, but it’s hard to tell what the significance might have been. There is at least one Edward Quince with a Facebook account, though, based on the profile picture of two adolescents on scooters, it doesn’t appear to have anything to do with Mr. Bernanke. There also appears to have been an Edward Quince who lived during the 19th centuryand moved from England to Australia as a “bounty immigrant” with his wife.

Mr. Bernanke’s alias conjures memories of Montagu Norman, the eccentric late Bank of England governor who in the 1920s and 1930s traveled under the name of “Professor Skinner.”

Yes, our ‘independent’ Fed is a unique and confusing operation. Ben Shalom Bernanke most likely did not think that any of his inner metaphysical thoughts would get revealed to the American public. But we now live in a world of the internet where secret data is getting much more difficult to cover-up. Where does this leave the Fed and its ‘independent’ agents going forward? Will Americans desire to ignore these types of shenanigans by a prior Authority over our cyber financial markets? Was Thomas Jefferson, our most knowledgeable Founding Father on issues of money and power, right about power and corruption at the highest levels? Read:

Much has been written about the famous debate between Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton over the constitutionality of America’s first central bank, the Bank of the United States (BUS). This was where Jefferson, as secretary of state, enunciated his “strict constructionist” view of the Constitution, making his case to President George Washington that since a central bank was not one of the powers specifically delegated by the states to the central government, and since the idea was explicitly rejected by the constitutional convention, a central bank is unconstitutional.

Treasury Secretary Alexander Hamilton notoriously responded by inventing the notion of “implied” as opposed to enumerated powers of the Constitution.

George Washington signed legislation creating the BUS not because of the strength of Hamilton’s argument but because of a shady political deal. The nation’s capital was being relocated from New York to Virginia, and Washington wanted the border of the new District of Columbia to abut his property at Mount Vernon. In return for a redrawing of the district’s border, Washington signed the Federalist’s legislation creating the BUS.

America’s first central bank was borne of a corrupt political deal, but that particular act of political corruption pales in comparison to what Hamilton and the Federalists really had in mind. As Murray Rothbard wrote in The Mystery of Banking (p. 192), Hamilton and his political compatriots, especially defense contractor/Philadelphia congressman Robert Morris, wanted

to reimpose in the new United States a system of mercantilism and big government similar to that in Great Britain, against which the colonists had rebelled. The object was to have a strong central government, particularly a strong president or king as chief executive, built up by high taxes and heavy public debt.

Isn’t it now time to AUDIT this so-called ‘independent’ Fed and get to the bottom of all this 100 year financial corruption? What do you think? You know my view! The history of our Fed has been concealed to the American people for a reason! Let’s send emails to everyone in America so that these issues get OUT TO THE PUBLIC! Our Future may depend on what happens going forward! Enjoy! I am:
