Y’all know how much I believe Ben Bernanke to be ‘The Traitor Of The Year’ when it comes to bureaucrats (elected and UNELECTED), and how much I want him perp-walking in handcuffs straight to jail because of the bubbles and devaluation that he has overseen. (Even more than the excuse for an American that sits in the Oval.) How can 11 UNELECTED pirates decide arbitrarily how our economy is going to perform? That’s what you have in The Federal Reserve System.
The Financial Times is reporting that the backlash against the newest round of quantitative easing being put forward by the Pirates at the Fed is sparking a currency war as other countries try to protect the value of their money. I am not sure whether you have read this article from Karl Denninger over at Market Ticker, but I am reprinting it in its entirety because you need to read it and you need to check his site daily for updates on what the Bankster Pirates are planning next. Ben Bernanke absolutely, positively needs to be stopped from acquiring any more wealth for the pirates. Time to call your representatives and sheriffs.
Now that the banks are once again running out of money Ben Bernanke is at it again. He has announced another $600 billion in illegal taxation on America, and intends to give it again to the bankers. A good part of it already showed up in oil and other commodities. The rest of it will. It is guaranteed. The “benefit” will go overseas. The tax will fall on you. – Karl Denninger, Market Ticker
Here’s the deal folks.
The banksters asset-stripped the public. Twice. The first time in the 1990s with the Internet bubble, the second time in houses. If you bought a home from 2003 onward you got screwed. It doesn’t matter if you were a good borrower or not – you overpaid. American business was also asset-stripped. We covered this by shipping our labor off to China, India and Vietnam.
During the last part of the 2000 decade, the Federal Reserve, Bank Regulators, Government and the Banks themselves were all in on it. We know this. We know it because Citibank’s former Chief Underwriter has testified to it under oath. It is not speculation or mathematics, it is admitted fact. This was an intentional, malicious act that involved government and finance. Your “representatives” didn’t represent you, they represented the banks. They acted as guards not of your wealth, but instead they held you at gunpoint while the bank robbed you. This is the proximate cause of the market and economic collapse – your productive wealth was literally stolen through these frauds.
Now they’re at it again. First, Ben Bernanke imposed, without a vote, a tax on the American People of over $1 trillion through his original “QE ” game. This went immediately into commodity and stock prices worldwide but was in fact a tax on you, and on every productive business. This is the reason that unemployment remains at close to 10%. By now we should be well on our way to recovery. The government blew $600 billion on stimulus programs. They got nothing for it because of QE, which took it all back out, plus more through the tax – a tax that went directly into the bankers pockets. This unlawfully-imposed tax was used to cover the banks’ insolvencies, along with the blatant extortion practiced by Rep. Kanjorski on FASB (who, incidentally, lost his seat Tuesday.) But the banks did not clear their balance sheets – they are, in fact, still insolvent. Instead, they literally took the money and paid it in bonuses.
Now that the banks are once again running out of money Ben Bernanke is at it again. He has announced another $600 billion in illegal taxation on America, and intends to give it again to the bankers. A good part of it already showed up in oil and other commodities. The rest of it will. It is guaranteed. The “benefit” will go overseas. The tax will fall on you.
THIS IS THE LARGEST TAX EVER IMPOSED ON THE AMERICAN PEOPLE IN THE HISTORY OF THE NATION. IT IS MORE THAN FOURTEEN TIMES THE BUSH TAX CUTS “ON THE RICH” THAT EVERYONE IS DEBATING. GOLDMAN SACHS BELIEVES THAT BERNANKE WILL IMPOSE A TOTAL TAX THROUGH QUANTITATIVE EASING OF MORE THAN FOUR TRILLION DOLLARS OVER THE NEXT TWO YEARS, OR MORE THAN FIFTY SEVEN TIMES THE BUSH TAX CUTS.
If you, America, do not rise and stop this NOW you’re all going to be effectively dead economically.
Your assets will be stripped.
All of them.
Your savings – as if having the earnings you can receive on a safe CD cut from 5% to 0.5% isn’t bad enough.
And, when the inevitable margin collapse comes in the corporate sector, your stock portfolio will detonate again and your pension funds, Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security will be gone.
Either you rise and stop Bernanke and The Fed, or he – and they – win – and we all lose.
There is no “individual path” that will keep your assets safe from this. There is no means to hide, so long as you’re an American citizen and live in this nation.
We have two choices: we collectively stop this madness or we all get destroyed.
Those are the only choices.
For three years and change I have warned of this outcome. I have pointed out that there is three trillion dollars or more of losses that have to be taken in the economy.
Those losses should fall on the banksters who committed these acts. Doing so will cause these banks to be taken into receivership. They will have to be resolved.
Virtually none of those losses attributed to them have been taken by these institutions.
These losses have all fallen on you, through unemployment, through higher energy prices and higher prices at the grocery store. All of these are taxes that are being illegally imposed on you by a Central Banker who lacks the legal authority to impose a tax.
Yet he’s doing it, and you’re being told to cheer because the DOW is up 200 points.
I want to note that in 2007 I wrote a similar Ticker urging people to stop this bastard when he started interfering like this. You did nothing, because the S&P was headed to 1576 and the DOW over 14,000 on the back of his original “rate cuts” and other machinations. I was called all sorts of names, the kindest of which were “kook.” You sat on your hands instead of rising to stop this crap and were repaid by watching your portfolio get cut by 60% in the next two years, two major banks blowing up in an uncontrolled fashion, and threats of tanks in the streets.
If you do not stop him – remove him from office – NOW – you will be destroyed.
That is a certainty.
We no longer have the “margin” to absorb another mistake like the last one. And the crap that Bernanke is pulling now is the mother and father of all mistakes.
It’s your choice America – but where this road leads is not open to debate. These institutions that robbed you can only survive the consequences of their acts by destroying you, and they are hellbent and determined to do exactly that, with Ben Bernanke as the man who is literally destroying not only your economic present, but the future as well for yourself and your children.
You no longer have the luxury of time.
