Unelected Taoiseach Cowen

Unelected Taoiseach Cowen  

 has criticised what he called the pervasive negativity in the media about the Irish economy.

Commenting on the downgrading of the economy by Moody’s, Brian Cowen said the National Treasury Management Agency had made clear we are a very stable economy.

The international ratings agency, that helps investors assess investment risk, downgraded Ireland for a second time since the financial crisis began.

However, the agency has moderated its outlook for Ireland from negative to stable.

Moody’s downgraded Ireland’s sovereign bond rating to Aa2 from Aa1.

Moody’s Senior Credit Officer and lead analyst for Ireland Dietmar Hornung said the ‘downgrade is primarily driven by the Irish government’s gradual but significant loss of financial strength, as reflected by its deteriorating debt affordability.’

Rival agency Standard & Poor’s, which downgraded for a second time in April, has maintained a negative outlook for the country.

The NTMA, which manages the national debt, has said the downgrading of Ireland’s credit should not have an impact on the country’s debt.

The agency, which is having its monthly auction of Irish bonds tomorrow, said the rating decision was not based on any new information.

The NTMA’s Oliver Whelan said there were positive elements in the Moodys’ announcement.

Comment:

Mr.Cowen the National Treasury Management Agency’s assurances are worth nothing to the Irish public in light of the assurances from your predecessor Ahern on Irish house prices two years ago or the assurances the financial regulator gave on Anglo Irish Bank or on your own assurance on the cost of bailing out the big banks of this state

You have absolutely no credibility; neither does any state body that includes the central bank  

You have lied to the Irish people and brought us down on our knees to the altar of the foreign vultures

Thus ensuring that future generations will continue to be slaves in their own country

You and your cabinet swatters will have to face the people’s justice sooner or later
We need action on jobs and a general election now

Don’t believe Cowen’s lies!


The economy has reached a “turning point” with the worst now over, The Unelected  Taoiseach Brian Cowen said.

How many turning points have we now turned ? anymore and we will all get dizzy!

Get real ,things are getting worse! talk to the 556,000 now on the dole scrapheap!

Talk to the social welfare recipients, expected to live on a fraction of the money you and your band of gangsters in the Dial are creaming on expenses!

Tell that to the unfortunate sick citizens lying on trolleys and are been denied basic services in the hospitals of the country that you and the criminal Harney are still advocating more cuts for!

In an address to a Fianna Fail meeting in Athlone,Cowen said the challenge is to now move with confidence and ambition into a new phase of recovery and renewal. (This is just political tripe)

The Unelected Taoiseach said Ireland was returning to growth and seeing an upturn in confidence.

“While we face another difficult budget ahead,(Code for more social welfair cuts,an easy target) for the Irish economy the worst is now over,” he said.

Mr Cowen said creating jobs was the backbone of the Government’s economic strategy.

He said Enterprise Ireland was working to create 40,000 jobs over the next five years, (8,000 each year) which would lead to an additional 28,000 jobs elsewhere in the economy.

Don’t believe the tripe coming from this gangster; I cannot believe the figures coming from the so called poll either!

This gangster and his cronies in the Dail have plundered this country and he and the other economic traitors deserve to be hanged for what they done

People of Ireland do not believe the vested interests who own the national news papers

They are afraid of a people’s government one that will bring real hope for the futures of all of us now consigned to the scrap heap by Cowen and his band of gangsters

Don’t be fooled by cowen’s pals in the news rooms

Help get these, the real leaches off our backs!

Support the demonstrators outside the Dail next Tuesday at 19.00 hrs and let your voice be heard

we want a General election Now!

 

What if this oil spill was off the coast of Ireland?

 

If this had happened in Irish waters the Government would have told the nation that we were all responsible and we must all put our shoulder to the wheel and help stop this well from leaking any more of our precious oil .They would also blame the single mothers and the Unemployed for using up badly needed financial resources that would otherwise be spent plugging the well.

A call for a national bond would be made and everyone in the work would be made pay a new oil cleanup carbon tax levy and the Unions would tell the members that we have no choice as this is the only option for the country

Gormley would employ a few green pals to count all the dead fish and Ryan would call for a national day of mourning .Brian lenihan would go on national TV to tell us we must tighten out collative belts yet another two notches!
Bertie Ahern would look for another “Dig out” from his pals to help pay his levy!
Having got it he would then seek an exemption from the revenue on the grounds he was a struggling artist!
The Government would then blame the protesters of shell to sea for the disaster and have them all thrown into jail!

Lenihan raising house prices

 

Extract from article in namawinelake  ( click on text)

On the Minister of Finance.

What business does he have telling us that prices are now realistic? What prices is he referring to? On what basis are prices realistic? To whom are they realistic? If prices are realistic does that, as the Independent aver, equate to prices being at the bottom? Maybe but let’s remember that the Minister must also on occasion don the leader’s hat and tell us to cheer up, it will get better and we will rebound and I know that we must believe that.

I wonder whether if the Minister donned the realist’s hat he would believe his own words at this point in time. If the Minister had just spent €54bn of the State’s money on gold, I wouldn’t expect him to say anything other than “buy gold today and get as much of the stuff as you can”. Time will tell.

 

Machholz comment

Spot on, this guy (The Irish Government) has at a stroke become the largest property owner (through his creation of the largest fraud in Irish history NAMA) in Europe if not the world.

I deal in the financial markets on a Daly bases and have done so for the last 15 years, buying stock and selling stock, hedging through options .It is common practice to see an action in the various markets called “pump and dump” this is done with 98% of the time of worthless stock

Large chunks are bought for pennies and the talked up, by analysts who get themselves on to such media channels Fox news, yahoo Finance and cbsmarketwatch and a whole host of other news outlets ,pumping the message that this is the time to buy this sh**

This of course is precisely what Lenihan is now trying to do, talk up the stock (Property) (mostly worthless stock)

The last time a Minster from this Government told people to buy property, (Berti Ahern) He said that if you were not getting into property now you were a fool, we all know what happened then!

I have over the years bought and sold property and always kept to a few rules when ,buying as there is only one rule when selling and that is sell at a profit.

 When buying

  • find out what rent you would get for the property

    Let’s say you will be getting 800 euro per month, and that rents are stable and not going down. This would then give an annual rent of 9,600:00 Euros

  • Multiply this figure by 10, this gives you 96,000.000:00Euros .This is the maximum you should pay for this building period!

    Why 10? , because this is the highest interest rates are likely to go. And with this system you will always get someone to rent and thus pay the mortgage.

  • Do not listen to the estate agent with regards to a price for the property; His or her interest is completely different to yours.
  • Ballpark value of average property is dependent on availability of credit from the banks

    And location .values can be arrived so

    The average working wage is currently 28,000:00 Euro and I believe falling because of the government’s income tax measures to pay off the huge bailout of the banks and their cronies in the Building industry.

    The stated policy of the Banks is to give only two and a half times salary and that is with conditions attached

    So 28,000:00 X 2.5 = 70,000:00 Walla, average price one should pay for a property in Ireland

    This formula works all over Europe (Germany, France etc)

  • So based on these figures we are nowhere near the bottom ,with 500,00 on the dole and approx 56,000 leaving the country, approx 23,000 young students leaving as well who do you think is going to buy all 300,000 empty properties around the country??


     

we need reform now!

The current Irish Government are responsible for the financial disaster the country is in,
With the establishment of NAMA the Government is trying to socialize the enormous losses that the Banks and their Developer buddies have encored.
Corruption is rife and now a new monster burocratic system is being created, where X politicians will have jobs for life and the same corrupt developers will be able to manipulate the housing market all over again
While the people are being robbed of their homes, savings, pensions, and education for their children, that same gangsters are running the country
This has to stop!
Join the CAB to-day and get things moving
Come on! Get active in your own area now!
We as a country need new faces and not the same old tired faces that have being around using the system to suite themselves.

Former Taoiseach

FORMER TAOISEACH

 Bertie Ahern,

Has not yet decided if he will avail of tax-free status under the artists’ exemption scheme on earnings from his autobiography, his spokeswoman has indicated.

His decision will be taken at the end of the tax year and will be based on the profits, “if any”, of Bertie Ahern: The Autobiography.

Taking the decision on how much money will or will not be made is bizarre. The issue is not how much tax Ahern would save personally, but that he is attempting to keep the monies from the State at all. It is in no way different if the amounts not entering the exchequer coffers total €1 or €100,000.

This attempt to appear to be considering whether he or the State needs the money more – as if it’s right that it is his choice to make – is idiotic.

The very fact he claims he is mulling it over is a kick in the teeth to other taxpayers. Whether he makes a profit or loss on the book is beside the point. It’s an issue of right or wrong; does Mr Ahern believe he should claim the tax exemption or does he not? The amounts involved are wholly irrelevant.

The Foxes minding the Chickens

The Governments intention to hold the inquire in the banking collapse in Private is an outright attack on Irish democracy

Having beaten down the will of the people to use the exiting democratic means to challenge them

We find that they are in total control of all the machinery of the state and they are using them to maintain their hold on power.

A recent poll on the performance of the governing parties is a complete farce.

The same radio station went out and asked the general public about the results and not one out of the members of the public supported the so called results of the earlier poll.

The News Media in this country is heavily infested by the ruling political elite

That is why there is a revolution going on with the whole way we access news to-day.

Bloggers are organizing themselves all around the country and demanding the same access as the established news media and probing into local corrupt practices within local county councils

(See for example https://mail.google.com/mail/?hl=en&shva=1#all/12654e2d240b57cd )

if you are want to start making a difference to the way the country is being run and get involved in direct action, you could start to-day by tacking action and fight for your right to be heard .

It’s your country and not the personal property of Brian Cowen, Brian lenihian, The Greens or indeed any of the political parity’s currently sitting the Dail

If you believe in an open economy, free enterprise, competition social justice

Then please get in touch and start an action group in your own area and help us to formulate a manifesto to challenge the established con artists that lurk within the current political system.
