    EPIC RANT: “They Take a Press Release from the Federal Reserve and They Think It Was Written by God”

    in-god-we-trustIf there’s one thing that individual investors can take away from Ben Bernanke’s latest Fed update, it’s that all confidence in the financial and economic systems of this country has been lost.

    Within seconds of Ben Bernanke suggesting the Fed would taper monetary expansion and reduce their activity stock markets tumbled.

    This proves one thing, and it’s what we and many other critics of Fed policy have been saying for nearly five years. The only thing keeping the entire system afloat is the fact that the U.S dollar is the world’s reserve currency, and that we can print it to infinitum.

    Ben Bernanke simply spoke of pulling back the money printing and look what happened. Stock markets dropped almost instantly. Can you image what will happen when the Federal Reserve actually stops the printing, or even pulls back a little bit?

    It would be financial chaos on an unprecedented scale.

    Americans should be outraged that it has come to this. And one American in particular has no qualms about letting his feelings be known.

    Watch CNBC’s Rick Santelli as he calls out Chairman Ben Bernanke, fed policies, unemployment statistics, and the blind followers who refuse to question the government’s widespread machinations.

    This is one you don’t want to miss.

    Via Zero Hedge and The Daily Crux (video below)

    On CNBC and all the channels that cover business, we have person after person after person, buy side, sell side, upside, downside.

    How is the economy? Economy is great.

    What about stocks? You got to buy them.

    What if they break? You have to buy the dips.

    What’s wrong with the economy? I don’t hear these people saying anything is wrong with the economy.

    So what’s wrong, Ben? Why can’t we get out of crisis management mode?

    There’s always going to be something.

    If you pull it away and the stock market goes down, where does it say in the Constitution that some form of the government has to guarantee that stocks go up? Or guarantee that you have a house?

    They don’t. Where have we gone off the rails? Enough is enough!

    Why don’t these people kick the tires?

    They take a press release from the Federal Reserve and they think it was written by God.

    Video courtesy The Daily Sheeple:

    Take the hint coming from today’s market reaction. Something is VERY wrong with our economic, financial and monetary systems.

    Chances are, the minute they pull back these markets are going to collapse. There are those, like the billionaires who have been selling off millions of shares of bank and retail stocks as of late, who know what’s coming.

    There’s a reason that the Japanese, Europeans and Americans are implementing “bail in” rules that will force financial losses on depositors just like you.

    Ben Bernanke may think he can slowly reduce quantitative easing. But, as billionaire financier George Soros noted in his book The Crash of 2008 and What it Means, the infusion of these massive amounts of capital may work for a while. Eventually, however, it must be pulled back or you’re going to end up with runaway inflation.

    The problem, as Soros highlights, is that no one really knows what pulling back will actually do or if it is even possible.

    This afternoon we got a very small dose of what to expect should the Fed pull back on the monthly billion dollar bailouts.

    It’s a Catch 22 – and there really is no way out of it.

    Keep printing, and we end up with hyperinflation.

    Stop printing, and the whole system implodes in on itself.

    We have two options, and both lead to complete and utter disaster.

    The end result will be the same for the average person on the ground.

        The smart money always exits the market before the sheeple. The markets are not rational, only appear so because they reflect the actions of many millions of individual investors and a few thousand large investors, all trying to find an edge.

        Some will take risks that in hindsight were not rational; just greed raising its ugly head.

        The market does not run up forever. Eventually it will fall below a level where corporate earnings are more or less reflected in company values, individually and as a whole. A decline is inevitable and is obvious to anyone with half a brain, but a decline is not “collapse” by any stretch of the imagination. Even a 50% retreat from these valuations is not a collapse. It is an opportunity.

        We have had many declines before. The world is not going to end today, or tomorrow. Play some golf the weather is beautiful.

          You want to know what scares helicopter ben the most? A barrel of bubbling tar and a gunny sack full of turkey feathers.

          I am beginning to think that nothing scares BO because he thinks he is the second coming, or some Greek God or something. What should scare BO the most? When people figure out that there is nothing called a free ride, they will pay through they nose rings.

          What scares the government more than anything? The complete truth.

          What should scare the masses, if they had any intelligence left, the most? The expendablility that the government considers everyone below a certain rung on the ladder, which would be about 99.9% of everyone.

          What would scare anyone that wants absolute control? Enough people not listening to authority, free thinking.

              >>”While bank investors SHOULD have lost their equity in the COLLAPSE, they didn’t, and if there were a second collapse it is not likely that bank investors would lose their equity the second time around.”<<

              Are you sure about that? Considering what just happened in Cypress, the new "Bail-In" banking rules being implemented in Canada, Japan, and being heavily considered for greater Europe. I think the upcoming round of banking troubles will force a lot of pain unto unsuspecting investors/depositors. Just a thought.

                YH: With the exception of Canada; but Canada is not ARMED, these countries are not America and DO NOT have the American banking system. America has one central bank for 50 states. The EU has as many SOVEREIGN central banks as they have sovereign countries …. all using the same currency.

                The Euro was designed to fail.

                Thats the problem in Europe and it may take a COLLAPSE in Europe to install an American style banking system there. that is a goal of the NWO and is as essential to the control of Europe as the eradication of guns in America.

                Will that have an effect upon US? Yes. Will it mean “total collapse” like the fear monger’s claim? No.

                Lets remember that Bernanke created $16 TRILLION dollars and loaned it out to the biggest banks, corporations, and countries with little to no effect. that money has been paid back, with some interest.

                The FED can do that again. Europe could even adopt the “dollar” like Panama and a couple other Central American countries, while Europe creates a new “MARK” and a single banking and currency system.

                Think of the coming “fallout” for small European banks as akin to the eradication of American S&L’s by the Commercial Bankers in the late “80′s.

                Europe will get stronger. That’s biblical. America will recede from the world stage as Earth Changes and political unrest occur here, and WE withdraw to settle our problems (and scores) internally.

                Change is coming. Prepare for it. Embrace it. And help forge a new American Revolution to re-birth and restore America. Its the best hope for the world until Jesus comes.

                  Why would the Euro be designed to fail just to adopt a system like ours? It was designed to fail in order to adopt an entirely new system which will be totally electronic.

                  You forget DK that many of our most recent wars have been fought to protect the monopoly of the petro-dollar. Your assumptions all based on the idea that the dollar will remain the world’s currency. The Indians and Chinese both have their own thoughts on that. Many elsewhere resent the power of the petro-dollar and are only to pleased to trade in other currencies/gold when the opportuniy arises, especially in Aisa.

                  The US is not powerful enough to engage China in direct military action & the UN has already touted a potential global trading unit to use as an alternative to the dollar.

                  Every dog has it’s day, and the global elite are NOT loyal or patriotic to any single nation. Do not let your emotional connection to the dollar blind you to these monsters antics.

                  They will retain control of what ever replaces the dollar. They live a global lifestyle and see us all as connecting cogs in THEIR global plantation. If the mechanism to keep us enslaved is entitled “wombat” instead of dollar, they won’t mind, just so long as they retain overall CONTROL.

                  At the present time it is the Chinese that are not powerful enough to engage America militarily. At the moment China cannot project its power beyond the South China Sea. LMAO! China needs at least another 10 years, maybe 15 to catch up with US, militarily.

              They are like the guy who goes out and buys a used car against the advice of just about everyone who knows him and knows what car he’s looking to buy. Once he gets it…sure enough, it’s a pile of crap. But do you think he’ll acknowledge that? On your life he will not. He’ll sit there and defend his purchase. Because he knows that if he admits he made a mistake, it confirms that he was a fool.

              We have a nation of fools. And instead of realizing their error, they’ll just look for the next new Messiah that will promise them the moon and piss down their neck and tell them it’s raining, and they’ll believe it.

              The average American has been so dumbed-down by public education..and so indoctrinated by the MSM..and so anesthetized by popular culture, that they are incapable of any kind of logical thought or critical thinking.

                Your assessment is 100% spot on correct. Americans have been dumbed down the point of near religious, cult-like, euphoric obsession to Obama’s religion of hate i.e. “Change”. Obama supporters remind me of some of the more extreme brainwashed cults I’ve seen over the years. We all know how that usually ends, not well.

                  It is also a deeper reason libs are that way. While they claim to crave “change”, in reality their Fear of real actual change as in mindset has much to do with their reasons to never be ablr to admit when they are proven wrong. They can never admit they are wrong, nor admit We were or are correct. As both equal the same final end for them. That being if they were to admit to it, what then? They know it means they will need to actually change mind set and actions or agendas or beliefs after admiting their notions or policies were wrong.

                  Therefore while libs promote such lust for “changes” as they swoon and oh and ahh over their latest heroboy hobammy, they actually Fear real change caused by admitions of their policy wrongs.

                  Their entire basis of thought is backward and idiotic. Look how a typical lib agenda is to keep doing the exact same methods again and again the same way, like gun control. No matter how often We prove all their antigun claims absurd and outright lies, libs will keep doing the exact same lies or methods as if somehow, someday, those wrongs or lies will magically change over to become truths. In their hopes to someday be vindicated and gleefully tell us “See! we were right all along”!

                  And they believe all thats needed to achieve such success is to keep doing failed agendas over and over untill “maybe”, somehow, it will become reality or correct.

                  So many stupid methods and idiotic failures due to a deranged liberal mentality, and Fear of Real actual change of minds for the better. The more you study and observe Liberal Dems, the more goofy and idiotic they really become.

          This is not about “corporate earnings”… more or less. It’s about fraud and manipulation! The market is RIGGED!

          It aint real!

          When the FED withdraws QE, interest rates will rise.

          When interest rates rise, the bond market will collapse, and the whole shitty house of cards [fraud] will come crashing down.

          The government won’t be able to pay interest on it’s debt let alone fund the EBT system.

          And that’s when the real FUN starts!

              “America has had high interest rates before: even 11 and 13% 30 year fixed mortgages. That is nothing new.”

              That’s true, but you forgot about the $17 trillion in debt. If interest rates rise, even a little, the “cost” of servicing the debt explodes! That’s why Bernanke is manipulating interest rates. They have to, because they have no exit strategy. They can’t undo what they’ve done. If they pull back on QE, rates rise and the whole thing crashes. If they continue QE forever, with unlimited money printing and credit, they will destroy the dollar. Either way, the result is the same: COLLAPSE. There is no way out of this! Why do you think your loving government is plunging head long into a police state, and arming itself to the teeth! They know what’s comming! Eventually enough of the drooling, tv watching, EBT card holding, USA… USA chanting Boobs will figure out they’ve been screwed. And when they do, your loving government has an exit strategy for that.

              “debt to GDP ratio is dropping.”

              Those numbers are manipulated! They add newly printed money and credit to the GDP figure, bumping the numbers up and giving the appearance of a higher GDP. Flooding the system with “liquidity” is NOT growth. It’s manipulation!

                Your Mama: After WWII the US Debt to GDP ratio was 125%. It is currently 105%. Interest rates after WWII were higher than they are now.

                Wrong again! :-)

                The system has not been flooded with liquidity. If that were true we would be experiencing hyperinflation. We are not. Only the banks and credit worthy corporations have access to capital on a mass scale.

                  “The system has not been flooded with liquidity.”

                  So QE is a conspiracy theory, and the Federal Reserve is not injecting $85 billion a month into the system.

                  “If that were true we would be experiencing hyperinflation.”

                  The reason hyperinflation has not yet set in, is becaue all the money being added to the money supply [M1] is being held by the banks as “Excessive Reserves.” The Fed prints the money, it then gives it to the banks, and then the banks send it back to the Federal Reserve as “Excessive Reserves.” The Fed even pays the banks interest on these reserves [tax payer money].

                  When the “Reserves” hit the “street”, we will see the hyperinflation. The banks can’t sit on the reserves forever. They will come out. And when they do, you will see hyperinflation.

                  It’s not a question of “if, but “when.”

                  Not only did you flunk Logic 101, but it seems Econ 101 as well.

              The country has never been in the current position it is in right now. Never has debt been as high as it is now with no plan going forward. Interest rates have never been this low with no plan going forward. The country has painted itself into a corner. There is no way out. Why don’t we raise everyone’s health insurance premiums and add in 15 million more illegals to the system. That way they can crawl out from under a rock and take what is left of the low paying jobs. Sound good?

                No way out? not likely. There are a number of things that We can do that I can think of off the top of my head:

                1. Reduce military spending by a few hundred billion a year.
                2. Cut the annual trillion dollar hydrocarbon subsidy. At $100 per barrel of oil equivalent, Big Oil doesn’t need additional revenue.
                3, Institute Fair Trade rather than continuing Free Trade and subsidizing China to the tune of $350 billion a year; Canada at $25 billion a year; and Mexico at $100 billion a year.
                The number for Mexico does not include the SNAP program for Mexico, or Puerto Rico ($2B); nor does it include the cost of ILLEGALS ($250B) to the American taxpayer.
                4. Then of course there is ObummerCare which will cost the American taxpayer a trillion dollars a year once it is fully implemented and everyone’s health care is paid for from general revenue funds.
                5. WE could also eliminate the $3B for Israel that they get every year and suggest that AIPAC members donate their money to israel instead of bribing US officials.

                There are lots of ready answers. Engage! :-)

Oh yeah and Outlaw forceing “gentiles” at 98% population from paying their religious “kosher” tax on all foods and even aluminum Foil, and many household cleaning agents or chemicals that also have a “Circle with K in middle” Kosher symbol.

                  That kosher K symbol alone adds aprox $3 Billion Per year to americans shoping costs for a religious belief barley 2% of american citizens practice.

                  Picture their Howls and Whines if somebody were to suggest a “Christian” religious belief symbol on most all items they buy weekly, and they pay a “Christian” tax added to each item!…Maybe a “Square, with a Big JC in the middle” as competition to their Kosher-K symbol.

                  They’d be screaming Nazis! hatemongers! and several more choice lables. I am tired of funding a few wealthy rabbis with my share of that $3 billion per year Kosher tax swindle. In fact I am tired of all of their Many swindles against america and gentiles…END Anti Gentileisim! End anti Goyimizim! ASAP!

        Police and riot only in the big cities.
        Personally, I welcome the $ increase here (and leave).
        Our imports decrease, the domestic market will have to produce the £ circulates internally.
        Oil is in Brazil, cows, pigs, chickens, rice, beans, water, mainly WATER!
        Land without hurricanes, earthquakes. There is drought in some regions and too much rain in others, but nothing that so directly affects the production and in other countries.
        Here is the ore heaps of all kinds that could meet our needs, we can recreate an industry expertise anytime qualified people.
        Another thing, in all these riots seen in the rest of the world, only the police had guns.
        The Brazilian is prevented by law to have guns, only criminals and police besides the military has weapons.
        God save the United States of America if ever you decide to do a demonstration like we saw on TV today, I think it would be a bloodbath, would end in civil war.
        The people here still stands of rubber bullets and grenades effect arrears with sticks and stones, you do not see the people with guns or sharp objects.
        You do not see blood (or bombs to kill).
        Here you see Jewish and Moorish tile attending rallies because studying together.
        Here neither the Mafia worked moreover, the Italian Mafia started to “break” when sent mobsters sought in Italy and the U.S. to Brazil, here they felt so relaxed that they gave to the whistle, reported all they had done (read about Buschetta who was extradited here if I’m not mistaken in the 80s or late 70s).

          Pessoalmente, vejo com bons olhos o US$ aumentar aqui (e sair).
          Nossas importações diminuem, o mercado interno terá que produzir, o R$ circula internamente.
          Petróleo há no Brasil, vacas, porcos, galinhas, arroz, feijão, água, principalmente ÁGUA!
          Terra sem furacões, terremotos. Há seca em algumas regiões e chuva demais em outras mas, nada que afete tão diretamente a produção como em outros países.
          Por aqui há minério aos montes de todos os tipos que poderão suprir nossas necessidades, uma indústria que poderá recriar know-how a qualquer hora com gente capacitada.
          Outra coisa, em todos esses tumultos vistos no resto do mundo, só a polícia tinha armas.
          O brasileiro é impedido por Lei a ter armas, só bandidos e polícia além das Forças Armadas tem armas.
          Que Deus guarde os Estados Unidos da América se algum dia vocês resolverem fazer uma manifestação como a que hoje vi na TV, creio que seria uma carnificina, acabaria em Guerra Civil.
          O povo aqui ainda se defende das balas de borracha e granadas de efeito moras com paus e pedras, vocês não vêem a população com armas de fogo ou objetos cortantes.
          Não se vê sangue (nem bombas que matem).
          Aqui você vê judeu e árabe lado a lado participando de passeatas porque estudam juntos.
          Aqui, nem a Máfia deu certo aliás, a Máfia italiana começou a “quebrar” quando mandaram mafiosos procurados na Itália e nos EUA para o Brasil, aqui eles se sentiram tão relaxados que deram com a língua nos dentes, contaram tudo o que tinham feito (leiam sobre o Buschetta que foi extraditado daqui se não me engano na década de 80 ou final da década de 70).

                • Dk, is correct.

                  In order for there to be hyperinflation, there must be what?
                  Velocity of money. Which implies the currency is making it into the masses of humanity… this, is not happening and not likely to. All this money stops in the big banks and the markets, and don’t forget, the gubmint. If the gubmint spends all the money on their pet projects and lifestyle enhancements, how much do you think is left over for you? Dregs for their pet corporations. How’re those college grads doing lately? Still living in mama’s basement…hmmm, no job because there’s no money to hire them? Prospects sour? Hmmm… Time to pay the piper, we screwed up when we shut down our industry and sent it China, they, The Elite, should pay with their lives.

                  I went in the bank the other day to inquire about a business loan, on a good idea to expand. She laughed, didn’t know how long she would have a job.

                  Bibilically, we are in store for a deflationary spiral into hell. This is due to the lack of velocity, because there is no money to spend. A lack of bids causes prices to fall, it doesn’t matter how much ‘money’ is printed if its not moving. Eventually Rev 6:6 says that the black horse will end in destitution for the masses, no middle class, yet there will still be rich people, and they will become your massa. This is the way the Head of Gold likes it, America was an aberration in the long term, the last great experiment will become an epic fail. This is happening now.

                  But DK is also correct on collapse… it doesn’t mean Madmax, just madness, crime, riots and martial law possibly. But, gubmint will still be around, and morphed into a fully fascist state. Russia ‘collapsed’, they’re still around… Argentina, Greece, name your state, the people are still around, aren’t they? Just living in abject poverty, that is what awaits America. And they will have a job for you, working on the company plantation, for an electronic credit a day, downloaded into your hand. America’s enemies are circling, ready to kill the dollar. When they do, we’re done.

                  This is why God’s people need to form an alternate underground economy, as a Remnant. The coming times will get so bad you will not know this country anymore, think; Hunger Games or worse. But we cannot win, fighting them one at a time, when the time comes, will we have eyes to see?

      • Keep stackin’ regardless of price is my view….. dollar-cost-average into it… month by month…. Hard to say which way PM’s are gonna go, but at some point I think they decouple from the broader markets.. just my 2 cents on it…

        Thanks!

      • I think we’ll see the high teens, before the upward climb (on silver). I’ve been stacking silver for 20+ years. Regardless, IMO, you can’t go wrong at these prices. We live in such strange times! Do what your gut tells you, and don’t look back. Fiat FRN’s won’t be around forever, silver and gold will. This house of cards will come down. It’s too bad it has to, but it defies common sense.

      • Peter,

        Paper commodity prices are moving lower. It has nothing to do with the underlying physical asset supporting the paper markets. Waiting for the prices to move lower is one consideration. Another consideration suggests there may not be any physical assets or metals available at any price when the collapse accelerates. As the saying goes, It’s better to be a day early than a minute late. It’s just food for thought, not investment advice.

      Does it really matter what’s going on with the fed? We know they are lying, cheating, good for nothing scoundrels. To me it doesn’t matter either way what happens because I have taken drastic measures to insure that my family and loved ones have the best possible chance of survival if the poo hits the blades. I’m sure most on this site would rather have the country go haywire so we could restart.

        There is none. I’m not saying doom, but world economic and political system was abused for far too long. Only way out is through deconstructing it, as it is already beyond repair. Through crash. It’d be extremely painful for billions, but there is no other way. I only hope like hell, that current dominant of the system (US), which stand to lose most during the crash, wouldn’t try to take everyone else down with it harsh way. WW3, nukes and all. At least we didnt in the 90s. All my hope is on (relatively) peaceful breakup of the curent system. But it’ll get much, MUCH worse, before it gets better. Which spells massive unemployment, inflation, widespread hunger, utilities and facilities down… you name it. We’ve been through this hell and back. Hold tight with your dear ones, understand that time for internal squabbles within the family (if there is, and I mean REAL squabbles, threateting family itseelf) is OVER. Be ready for situation to worsen to wartime-like. Asess those arounf you who you now think about as close relatives or friends with one criteria – would you trust him/her in times of EXTREME hardship such as hunger combined with absence of shelter and constant threat of sudden violent death. If positive, hold onto them. Its an only way to weather it. Personal knowledge. Ive been a child at the time, granted, but I remember. If parents hadn’t made through this together, I’ve probably been dead by now (health issues). They are very differnt and fought with each other often…. but they fight for the family tooth and nails. That is what saved them…and me.

        Last but not least tools at yard sales. Old tools, good well made tools. Tools you might not use but have value if the price is right.

          Look toward the future. If you’re 55 and may need a new roof in 5 years, ask yourself if you’ll be able to nail on a roof in 5 years. If you put on 30 year shingles when you’re 55, your roof will probably last as long as you will.

            The difference in cost between 20-year and 50-year shingles is about $2000 for an average home, and even less for 30- to 50-year. Labor is well over half of the cost. You can hire a company to do a complete tear-off and install of new membrane and roofing paper, that gets you protected and does most of the work, then get the shingles delivered to your rooftop and do it yourself. Use metal valleys, and if you can, upgrade to 40 or 45 pound felt, it can double the life of your roof. Two people, one nailing and one placing, can roof a house in one or two days. Buy a compressor and air nailer, you’ll get twice as much done in the same time. Use 4 nails per shingle.

Gradusov said an air force umbrella would be there if needed. debkafile: This was a thinly disguised Russian flexing of muscle against continuing Western arms supplies to the Syrian rebels.

        “Vamos por partes” (como dizia Jack – o estripador) hehe:

        1. Sua dólar converte em 7 centavos.

        R- Não! Vale muito menos, se comparar com o começo do século vale 0,002 ou menos.

        2. Seus amigos votar 300 para a mesma pessoa e ela só recebe 12 votos computados.

        R- Sim! Isso porque nos EUA seu voto como cidadão não vai parar no seu candidato a Presidente, não é você quem vota no cara, além do mais, não há voto eletrônico como no Brasil ou na Venezuela. Aliás, no Brasil, na próxima votação, você só precisará de um dedo para votar, enfiará o dedo na máquina e votará. Só isso.

        3. Banqueiro diz que você não pode tirar o dinheiro da poupança.

        R- Nesse caso você tem duas opções: A primeira é tirar o dinheiro da sua conta no banco antes, a segunda é virar amante da mulher do banqueiro (hehe).

        4. Sua posse Home fica tributados pesadamente ou confiscados.

        R- Nesse caso é melhor arrumar um otário para comprar sua posse Home e se mudar.

        5. Deve pagar um imposto de “culpa” por ser livre de dívidas.

        R- Esse “imposto” é o mais fácil de se jogar fora, é só parar de dar dinheiro aos pobres (e aos pastores). Pense bem: o Governo está sustentando os pobres, para quê você vai dar dinheiro? A segunda coisa, você é filho de Deus, Ele é seu Pai. Converse direto com ele, você não precisa de intermediários para conversar com seu Pai!

        6. Deve mostrar CHIP ID de dinheiro em PMs.

        R- Fácil também!: Se você trabalha, receba em cash!

        7. ‘Ratos’ em todos os bairros dizendo NWO se você está jardinagem e conservação dos alimentos.

        R- Volte a resposta “4″ (mude de lugar).

        8. Sementes da herança deve ter o gene “terminator”.

        R- Bom, se você pensar e conhecer História, verá que TODOS os locais que foram tomados dos Índios no Continente Americano, ou foi por FUGA de perseguição na Europa ou, por interesses comerciais (isso inclui os afro-americanos). Do Equador (não país, a linha) para baixo, houve miscigenação. Só as culturas que se “acham” europeias hoje acima do Equador estão nesse drama que você acabou de colocar. Pense bem nisso que esta mistura de polonês com austríaco casado (a vinte anos) com uma descendente de índios e negros está lhe dizendo, respeite minha barba branca, minha mulher e meus filhos mestiços que não comem no “Mc’Donalds”.

        9. 48 horas pena de prisão para saudar a bandeira dos EUA.

        R- Não saudar a Bandeira, não saber de memória o Hino Nacional, na minha concepção 48 horas de prisão é pouco, o cara só deveria sair de lá o dia que soubesse bordar a Bandeira e cantar o Hino de trás para frente soletrando!

        10. Sua cada passo e cada palavra e cada movimento é registrado.

        Cara! Este sim, uma grande questão!
        De minha parte, para começar, acabei com o Facebook, Orkut (moro no Brasil), e outras mídias de relacionamento.

      Collapse is a mathematical certainty – got it. But WHEN? I’m succumbing to “collapse fatigue” as I read articles from 2007 which insisted that a financial apocalypse was utterly imminent. It has been years, already. I’m not going to fall back asleep, but am I seriously underestimating the resilience of the global economy?

      • “Collapse” depends on each individual situation/events. I believe that if the market dives, say 50%, those doors on Wall Street will be open, and a line around the block, (albeit electronically) will be buying on the dip. The door on the Dow will be the last to close. I’ve had a very high distrust of our government for well over thirty-five years. I’ve always have felt the need to store food and other goods in that time. I have ramped efforts up recently (last few years) as I see the deterioration grow. I still believe this is going to be a very slow train wreck. My wife and I recently took off a few days and traveled down to see my folks in East Tenn. I enjoyed myself immensely and relaxed. Spent some time over on my sister’s and BIL’s farm watching the turkeys and deer. Enjoy yourself as much as possible.

          Excellent points. I have wondered for quite a while now whether the “collapse” will be a protracted descent into misery that occurs over a period of years or whether it will be a punctuated event in which we go from zero to Mad Max within a few days. Either could happen, as far as I can tell. But you are correct. We need to still be able to enjoy the simple things in life while maintaining a responsible mental and physical state of preparedness.

      THIS IS AMERICA

      Footage showing the brutal execution of three people has gone viral on social media. The video, sent to Syria Report, shows a number of AMERICAN CIA men, some of them armed, holding a man down, with his hands bound.

      Two AMERICAN CIA militants proceed to take turns in beheading the man. One of the men has a handheld transceiver clipped to his waist, while another carries handcuffs.

      After the man is decapitated, the victim’s head is held up to the apparent cheers to the AMERICAN CIA captors.

      After the mans headless body is dumped into what looks like a pre-dug pit, two women after being RAPED by the AMERICAN CIA TERRORISTS are seen being marched toward the place where the man was beheaded. After some fumbling with the assault rifle, perhaps arguing over who should carry out the execution, the two women are repeatedly shot. There bodies, like the beheaded man, are dumped into the pit.

      Before the world turn to shit “Niburu”, earthquakes, UFO’s, Ben Bernanke, Iranians and Jews (Chinese or Russian is the same, everything collides can munch our lives), better talk and exchange ideas.

      The world to come is much worse than the “John Titor” (one of IBM) said it is much worse than what we read about “Project Echelon” in the 80′s still in dialup.

      The question that my father always made me was this: “- What is worth more, a gold ring or ten acres of land?”

      O mundo que está por vir é muito pior do que o “John Titor” (aquele do IBM) falou, é muito pior do que a gente lia sobre o “Projeto Echelon” na década de 80 ainda no acesso discado.

          The answer is thought, was well placed to ask what you did!

          Unfortunately I believe it is not possible to travel in time. The most we can do is find other civilizations delayed and leave some things as we find here in coal mines or embedded in sandstone blocks.

          Instead, objects are left by people who went here and we found thousands of years later.

          We are not alone in the universe, have this in mind.

          If you could travel in time, imagine the both of millionaires who would “back” here to save their lost fortunes in the future?

          Isso sim, são objetos deixados por gente que por aqui passou e nós encontramos milhares de anos depois.

          Não estamos sós no Universo, tenho em mente isso.

Since you choose not to truly identify the cause of a problem due to you own bias, you have no chance of solving it. These problems would be here no matter who is in the white house or congress. Why? Because ALL politicians are owned by the economic elites who see the American people as nothing more the commodities to be exploited for their own ends then cast aside like so much refuse. This trend will continue until the sheeple like you and others truly identify the problem and make the economic elites realize their continued rape of the American people is hazardous to their health.

      It’s all a huge PONZI scheme and criminals have the keys and are bilking the system for every penny they can get as fast as theh can get it, before it crashes.
      And when it does crash they will say “let the chips fall where they may”. They think they will be the only ones who will survive.
      When it crashes they plan on taking ALL you have and putting YOU in a FEMA camp to rot and die.
      That’s their GRAND PLAN. Brilliant aint it, trouble is when you own EVERYTHING what do you really have?

      Politicians in general are making a right dog’s dinner of the entire affair. Real costs of living are forever rising, jobs are thin on the ground, and even the money in our bank accounts is not ours! It seems our politicians lack the competence to deal with the many problems arising from the economic crisis. Perhaps they need advice from professional economic crisis specialists. For example, the Orlando Bisegna Index, specialists in the economic crisis, have developed a program that has helped various counties with debt problems, business failures and unemployment, thus improving the economic condition of many families. The program has arisen from their development of the Orlando Bisegna Index, a unique index based on 206 diverse indicators that measures the intensity of the economic crisis in the G20 countries and other Euro countries.

      “In the absence of the gold standard,
      there is no way to protect savings from confiscation through inflation.
      If there were, the government would have to make its holding illegal, as was
      done in the case of gold. If everyone decided, for example, to convert
      all his bank deposits into silver or copper, (which were legal to own then),
      or any other good, and thereafter declined to accept checks as payment for
      goods, bank deposits would lose their purchasing power, and government-created
      bank credit would be worthless as a claim on goods. The financial policy
      of the welfare state requires that there be no way for the owners of wealth to
      protect themselves. This is the shabby secret of the welfare
      statists’ tirades against gold. Deficit spending, is simply a scheme for
      the confiscation of wealth. Gold stands in the way of this insidious
      process. It stands as a protector of property rights. If one
      grasps this, one has no difficulty in understanding the statists’ antagonism
      toward the gold standard.”

      No one is paying attention to the hidden agenda behind this. On the 18th of this month (2 days ago) the fed just released a program to get rid of physical money, don’t you think it’s strange that then yesterday this happened? By sept 19 all physical money has to be turned in, it just has not been announced yet, and he’s going to crash everything first, everything. They want everything electronic so they can track every move and if you step out of line, boom your money is gone. 85% of all money is already digital, all this money printing, is digital. By the end of this month we will be toast, the Economy as we know it will be gone, look out for june23rd to. June 29th, we will wake up and everything will be gone.

          Sure, I’ll get all the information together and post, and while I’m doing that, on a very important side note, the federal reserve was established in 1913 in July, on a 100 year renewal plan, which is July 2013. They do not plan on renewing it, they plan on merging it with the IMF and to have a one world central bank, they will swallow up the dollar as well as every other country and have one currency for North America, amero, then eventually they will merge with the euro, as everyone knows that the euro was made to crash. But in order to do this they have to crash and destroy our economy to look like our saviors with this new program, why do you think their are all these scandals (distractions), and two the war, we are in ww3 now, another thing not being announced. And I will post every bit of evidence so no misinformation agents cannot try and discredit this. BARN CAT, hope you can hear that

      I have a question, we have a 30 year 4% fixed mortgage so our interest rates can’t go up (supposedly). If the economy/stock market tanks or crashes, am I right to assume, (I hate that word), our property taxes will go up to “bail out” city/county thus increasing the amount of our monthly mortgage expenses through PITI? Already re-organizing monthly expenses for this probability & hoping this doesn’t happen.

      • Sounds reasonable. Your local tax code may differ, but here they are only allowed to raise the taxes by a certain percentage each year unless they put it on the ballot for referendum. They tried that here 2 years ago but we voted it down. You could tell who was on the government payroll by the big “YES” signs in their yards. They will always protect their salary and pensions on the back of others. Keep your eye on them and vote new taxes down.

          Story time…Springfield Tennessee wanted a huge increase in property taxes a few years ago to build a new school.
          Problem was the new school was for 50% blacks that didn’t pay property taxes so that increase wasn’t fair.
          IT DID NOT PASS.
          Taxes came from county tax increase on sales.

        They can go up to until you can’t pay them anymore. If lack of payments facilitate foreclosure on a huge scale civil unrest and disobedience will be the order of the day and politicians will be voted out in abundance. It may be difficult but at least “We The People” can wrestle control in local politics.

        If in the end hyper inflation occurs no budget plan will work. Nothing from nothing leaves nothing.

          @ JRS & Kevin2, Thanks for the response. I figure they’ll eventually tax us out of our home but I’m hoping for a slow, long, decline if a decline has to happen. Thankfully we are stable (for the moment) & have planned for personal SHTF due to past experience so we can hold out for a while unless all hell breaks loose. Even then, if we lose the house, it is just a house and we are survivors and very adaptable (unfortunately been in positions in the past to have to be). Thanks again.

        If your taxes are a part of your mortgage payment, yes, your payment can and will rise with any tax increase. And don’t forget, most escrow accounts like to have a six month cushion, so they’ll raise your payment more than just the tax rise, to keep that cushion intact. If you can, get your mortgage payment restructured to eliminate the tax escrow, just principal/interest, and set aside the taxes yourself.

      This evening the ‘backflash’ from this will impact the Far East further destabilizing thier markets. In the morning the Ghouls at JPM, Citi, and Goldman will descend on tonight’s carnage for a feast of Blood, ‘bargain hunting’. The likely result will be a flattening of the markets (ours) up TO the noon time frame…after that all bets are off, there being simply no way to predict ANYTHING beoyond that frame. My worry now is Monday….the weekend will reveal to those hit by this just HOW BAD the result is, until then even THEY won’t have a plan of action…or know the full extent of the damage.

        If the US dollar looses its reserve currency status those greenbacks and its electronic counterpart will come home to roost. Too many dollars will immediately chase far too few goods. That is the hyper inflation scenario.

        Regarding continued QE once again its too many dollars chasing an almost finite supply of commodities as even with demand dropping the price of oil is rising. Food is also following this trend and coincidently neither of these inputs are put into the consumer price index to tabulate current inflation having been removed from that calculation about two decades ago. As they say “Trash in, trash out”. While the inflationary rise of food and fuel complements of EQ is not as accelerated as the demise of the USD as reserve currency the doubling of both in a couple of years is very damaging and possibly socially destabilizing.

      COLLAPSE is such a relative word.

      For many people, the economy has already collapsed. These are people who lost their job and income in 2008 and have either taken a job in which they are overqualified for to pay bills, or they just haven’t been able to find a job period.

      Just because there aren’t food lines like in the thirties doesn’t mean they don’t exist. Look at the number of families on the SNAP program. These are the food lines of the thirties, but they are doing it in “stealth”. Out of sight, out of mind. When I see the commentators on CNBC talking about how wonderful things are…they are talking about how wonderful things are for THEM.

      I have said all along that TPTB were going for the “boiled frog” scenario, and I still think that. A long drawn out collapse for most people, but I think they’ve screwed up on the soft landing part of the scenario.

      There will be a lot more pain and suffering before this is over.
