Debbie Does Dallas But Arif Nizami Does Sheikh, Tarin, WB, IMF, and ALL Bankers

And that to without taking a breath! I felt like I had just witnessed a bukkake but instead of the star being a girl, it was this slimy old man…(puke!)

That it is going to be a BJ by Mr Nizami becomes clear from the very start:

Finally, Dr Abdul Hafeez Sheikh, a dark horse, has accepted the coveted job of adviser to the prime minister on finance, revenue and economic affairs. Better late than never, Pakistan finally has a finance minister.

It’s all down hill from there. Next he puffs that low life up on pedestals made of sand:

Dr Hafeez Sheikh, a US-trained economist, who served in the World Bank as its country head in Saudi Arabia, is not new to Pakistan. Belonging to a landed family of Sindh closely related to the Soomros, he served as the provincial finance minister and later as the minister for privatisation and investment in the Musharraf regime. Despite showing good results in both the slots, he resigned from his post over policy differences. Since then he has been heading an investment firm based in Dubai.

Of course any fool can study economics in US, serving World Bank only means he s an economic hit man, belonging to a landed family closely related to Soomros means he is NOT from an old landed family and someone in his family is married to a Soomro (a fact that should be hidden and not displayed), and it probably happened when he was the provincial minister. The lousy job he did as minister for privatisation and investment in the Musharraf regime is something we are well aware of and suffering from even today. And you nicely hide over the fact that though he’s been working in Dubai, who it is that he had been working for.

Next, Mr Nizami turns his face towards Mr tarin and says “I want it right in my mouth”:

Admittedly, Mr Tarin ably steered the economy in very turbulent times. Despite the country being virtually in a state of war, riddled with suicide attacks, he managed the economy well, bringing a modicum of economic stability.

So Mr Nizami wants us to believe that Mr Tarin had “ably” steered the economy and brought us “economic stability”. He seems to have slept through the last two years while are economy was “ably steered” right into the middle of the IMF iceburg for which Mr Tarin was hired to prevent and if this is “economic stability” we are living under, then I don’t know what economic instability is!

Soon Mr Nizami follows it with the biggest of lies and it for sure takes the cake for the biggest lie one can tell:

The former finance minister can also take due credit for bringing inflation down from 20 per cent to 9 per cent in two years.

Wow! So the prices of everything have been skyrocketing because the rate of inflation has been going down? Simply fucking amazing!!! And the fact that he is lying and he knows he is lying becomes apparent in the very next paragraph where he states:

the bulk of the population living below the bare sustenance level, facing endemic shortages of basic foodstuffs at prices increasingly beyond their reach.

Repeat that again? Do tell me Mr Nizami how can we with an economy that has been “ably steered” for the past two years with inflation more than halving do we end up with “the bulk of the population living below the bare sustenance level, facing endemic shortages of basic foodstuffs at prices increasingly beyond their reach”??
He further exposes his lies in the following paragraph:

State corporations like the national airline, WAPDA, railways and the Steel Mills – packed with cronies and political appointees by successive governments – are massively contributing to the burgeoning budget deficit. A projected GDP growth rate of just over three per cent during the current financial year is barely sufficient to keep pace with the rate of population growth.

So I ask once again Mr Nizami, how can we with an economy that has been “ably steered” for the past two years with inflation more than halving do we end up with “State corporations…packed with cronies and political appointees by successive governments [that includes the previous government of which your new Knight in Shining Armor was a major part of] with “GDP growth rate of just over three per cent during the current financial year is barely sufficient to keep pace with the rate of population growth”?

Through the rest of his half of his article Mr Nizami goes to bat for his other benefactors — the bankers — calling laws against their totally free hand “draconian”, etc. But near the end he comes back to earn his bonus and states:

The IFIs and donor countries, primarily the US, will be relieved that here is a person they can do business with. Being no walkover[Ha, ha!], Dr Sheikh will hopefully be able to ward off competing vested interests [He is a FUCKING VESTED INTEREST] vying for influence on the basis of cronyism and political connections. Hopefully, he will be given the authority and the freehand he demanded before joining the cabinet.

    Hi – you do read rags rather perceptively!

    I can’t disagree with your assessment that the author is deliberately crafting an applause. But why? And personal gain alone doesn’t explain it. Firsly, there is no obvious propaganda angle perse for crafting such an applause – it’s not like the public opinion matters, or that the english-enabled negroes care, or that even the prateroian gaurds’ preferences count for anything on how best to skin the dying dog. All key decisions and appointments are of course scripted elsewhere. Secondly, this newspaper, like all others (if there are exceptions I don’t know them), is a foreign intelligence asset. Therefore, this can only be a Mighty Wurlitzer’s piece, and that’s clearly captured in your last passage:

    “The IFIs and donor countries, primarily the US, will be relieved that here is a person they can do business with. Being no walkover[Ha, ha!], Dr Sheikh will hopefully be able to ward off competing vested interests [He is a FUCKING VESTED INTEREST] vying for influence on the basis of cronyism and political connections. Hopefully, he will be given the authority and the freehand he demanded before joining the cabinet.”

    IMF is about to administer a series of fatal “legal” blows to Pakistan through that perpetual lever of debt-inflation-crisis-war induced structural-readjustment lending. That message, that something is imminently afoot, is being broadcast to concerned “managers” (ref Atlas Shrugged) in Pakistan using this open communication channel of the press to prime them. We will be going down laughing, instead of crying – that’s the intent. It is the same intent that is visible in all modus operandi today – white is black, freedom is captivity, war is freedom, centralized management under the enlightedned few is good and an effective counter to corruption and cronyism, …

    There is another subtle point that should be highlighted in your comment:

    “Dr Sheikh will hopefully be able to ward off competing vested interests [He is a FUCKING VESTED INTEREST]”

    Yes – wolves pretending to be sheep. Somehow they do fool a lot of sheep.

    This pretence is at times far more sophisticated than is the case here. See my Letter to MIT Professor and former IMF Chief Economist, Simon Johnson

    http://print-humanbeingsfirst.blogspot.com/2010/03/lett-simonjohnson-mit-imf-zahirebrahim.html

    Confessions and “limited hangouts” of course, of what is already fait accompli, is another modus operandi to create “beneficial cognitive diversity” in order to deflect attention from current affairs and currently on-going crimes. Just like that quote you had on studying the “history’s actors” from Ron Suskind’s article in the NY Times. What an obvious truism! And so arrogantly stated in the empire’s own mouthpiece.

    One can easily see through such a modus operandi – when what is already obvious is touted about as revelation from Moses with narratives added for embellishing the tales, and learned people line up to lick it all up. Here is my response to the greatest Confession con-artist, the Economic Hitman (see the Redux postscript):

    http://humanbeingsfirst.blogspot.com/2007/03/introducing-game-as-old-as-empire.html

    No one who has ever worked for, or has been affiliated with the projects of, or otherwise peddled the imperial wares of, the WB, the IMF, and any of the myriad international banksters’ front organizations, can ever be believed as the friend of the people. Any one projecting them thusly in the press is only their asset (or their patsy – and that’s not too hard for house negroes).

    Now if only your deconstruction of that Nizami article could also get some fair airing! Oh the multivarious fraud of modern freedoms – none are more hopelessly enslaved than those are falsely led to believe they [have freedoms]!

    But I encourage you to still submit a letter to editor with only the minor edit of cleaning up your favorite word. Send a copy to the both the Finance Minister and to the IMF – that would be considered “tickling” in the CIA jargon.

    Thanks.

    INDEED! Just a note: Remember Sheikh, a WB employee is replacing Tareen, a WB employee (Coincidentally, one coming from New Silk Route — Dubai and one going back to Silk Bank)

    Regarding EHMs: “First be highly paid for orchestrating the rape, then get paid again writing about it, while also winning praise and fame in the process!”

    I would add it is unfair to compare EHMs with the Eichmanns — to the Eichmanns. Eichmann’s crimes ended but the gifts of EHMs are gifts that keep on giving and giving and giving for years to come. Eichmanns’ once removed or dead, their crimes stop. Not so with the EHMs….

    You wrote:

    “Eichmann’s crimes ended but the gifts of EHMs are gifts that keep on giving and giving and giving for years to come. Eichmanns’ once removed or dead, their crimes stop. Not so with the EHMs….”

    That’s quite accurate – and its truth cannot be elaborated enough times. So, just for the completeness of your thought, here is the full Redux from my EHM hit-piece. I had, I believe, sent my full article to both John Perkins and his publisher. But John never responded to that critique, even though we had communicated previously when his EHM first came out in 2004. I had been quite astonished to read on its page 101 on how an MIT mathematician had been hired by Perkins to diabolically invent mathematical-gibberish which no one might easily understand (just like the rest of econometrics fleecing mankind in the name of managing the economy) as justification for greater development-debt by promising double-digit returns. These of course never materalize in the loan-sharking game of structural-readjustment lending of the WB-IMF tag team which “legally” steals public commons and the wealth of nations. Chas T. Main and the World Bank and IMF had very cleverly put science in service of empire. You can read that John Perkins full confession on pages 101-102 here:

    http://print-humanbeingsfirst.blogspot.com/2009/11/let-co-conspiracy-theorist-climategate.html

    And here is that full Redux on EHM:

    [Redux: A note on confessions and legal covers. The real question that apparently escapes all John Perkins admirers (like this one) is: After the Economic Hitmen retire from their cushy jobs of raping nations and peoples under “legal cover”, they write confessionals as victims of conscience; should the Jews have let Adolph Eichmann go had he too written a confessional, as an extreme example to illustrate the point? He also had 'legally' conspired the Holocaust! Why should the victims of the EHM espouse a different tolerance? Why should the uber-moralists in the EHM's society espouse a different tolerance? From 'legal' wars to 'legal' rape into economic conscription and bondage – is one continuous achievement of any super-morality throughout the pages of history who 'legally' commit monumental crimes and kill/subjugate a million under “the sound of trumpets” as “primacy and its geostrategic imperatives”! But only of course, until victor's justice is made to prevail! Then, all confessionals and that inner 'voice of conscience' only cement one's ascent to the gallows! Should the conscionable John Perkins be donating the monetary proceeds of his Confessions to the nations and peoples he helped rape and plunder, in restitution, just as he is now presumably helping them with forensic information on how he covertly did it to them? Selling books on one's con-game in the name of helping future victims only imputes impure motives to the enterprise: First be highly paid for orchestrating the rape, then get paid again writing about it, while also winning praise and fame in the process! Furthermore, it is interesting to observe another blatant dichotomy in crime and punishment. Adolph Eichmann was the harbinger of cataclysm to some six million Jews for a short span of 3 to 5 years with just the stroke of a pen or the drop of a word, and he was hanged in Jerusalem. Whereas the EHMs are the harbingers – with the same stroke of pen and some button pushing on calculators and fancy spreadsheets – of the continued entrapment of entire nations in inextricable systems of poverty and misery for generations that is no less cataclysmic for these victims. And yet, the EHM walk free among us in suits and ties, sometimes even heading prestigious economic institutions, and of course, nations. As the prime-mover DNA – the 'legal covers' – should we do something about this root cause that enables the multi-color-collared crimes against humanity by the emperors? Where else are we seeing such “legal covers”? Would it be pertinent to point to “shock and awe”, “Economic Sanctions”, and the “UN Security Council Resolutions”, to subjugate entire nations? To know right from wrong is indeed not too complex – the Bible has already taught it to us through the Golden Rule “Do unto others as you have others do unto you” – there are few shades of gray for the commonsensical un-hypocrite! Thus I have little sympathy for the cat who goes for Hajj after eating 900 mice! Crimes are not absolved or made less abhorrent by confessionals. Nor its victims restituted by the voice of one's conscience! Payment still needs to be made in full. Thank you.]

    I thought “Yellow Journalism” was dead.But no.

    Years back,Shaheen Sehbai,had started South Asia.Seems similar to that.

    Jornalists criticise others,as if they are “angels”,but late Khalil Malik exposed you all.

    You are serving anybody,even your ownselves.

      @Nononsense
      “I thought “Yellow Journalism” was dead.”
      Well then you live in la-la land! :-)

      Years back,Shaheen Sehbai,had started South Asia.Seems similar to that.
      I take that as a compliment though I am sure it was not intended as such ;-)

      Jornalists criticise others,as if they are “angels”,but late Khalil Malik exposed you all.
      They do? I must be missing something. Do agree though they all pretend to be “angels”. Regarding late Khalil Mailk, sorry, never heard of him. Regarding “you all” bit, you are mistaking me for a ‘journalist’. I most certainly am not! :-P

      You are serving anybody,even your ownselves.
      Oh BITE ME! :-)

      P.S. Some suggestions for a new, more appropriate nick for you: how about “nosense”? “nonsense”? “justnonsense”? ‘nincompoop”?
