    Howdy! This post could not be written any better! Going through
    this post reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He continually kept preaching about this. I will forward this
    information to him. Pretty sure he’s going to have a good read.
    Many thanks for sharing!

  2. Freemenright!

    I think Alan Grayson must be frustrated that his time ran out during his questioning of Bernanke. It also seems that Bernanke has utter contempt for any questions seeking the truth of where the money has gone!! It is obvious to any sensible human being if you look at the start of the economic melt down how the oil price was manipulated to create a massive surge in inflation and pressure on every UK/USA individuals(the price doubled in two months!!!!). The amount of money required to corner the oil market is quite extraordinary and the small group who achieved it would require a business like the Fed or huge bank to underwrite the deal. It is also worth pointing out that the Gold price is set daily at three PM daily by 5 banks in London(note I say London and not british banks , because the major shareholders are international and based off shore!!). The price of oil is also controlled by a small number of market making organisations. This means that the so called free market principles that we are told exist is actually a myth and we are rapidly becomming a world resmbling the story book ‘animal farm’ where those at the top have everything and those the rest of the way down never have an opportunity to aspire!! I am English, but as well as this being un English I would say that it most un American and not what the USA since independence stands for!! My First ever blog!

      Welcome! We are all in this together. The more who see the truth the easier it will be to counter the misdirections of our governments and not be fooled by them. We need a force of truthtellers. Glad to have you among us.

      I absolutely love Daniel Hannan’s outspoken and brilliant remarks!! I watch them over and over for the sheer delight in watching his gutsy-ness to speak the truth even while it is not popular and so many are asleep.

      Don’t you just love this Alan Grayson?! I do. He’s such a good interrogater, asks the direct questions, is relentless. Check out more of his interactions on youtube with the FED. He is speaking up for all Americans! I appreciate his work, his style, he’s going in for the kill. They say he’s new. Maybe that’s exactly what we need….and more of them! Congressmen and women with some guts. I was going to say something else, but it wouldn’t be fitting for congresswomen.

      The excuse the FED always gives, no matter if it is Bernanke, or Kohn or Coleman to remain secret is not working for America….never did.

    Ya gotta love Alan Grayson!! His video is worth several replays just for the feeling of heightened satisfaction. We need to clone him! He’s got the powerful voice and manner. He leads the one being questioned into his well planned trap of exposure! He appears to be thoroughly enjoying himself too.

    In this update from Bernanke, congress is referencing the problems looming in commercial real estate, with commercial banks not lending…and the residential market with foreclosures still barely moving….then walks right into exposure of the FED lending money to foreign countries (not before the crisis, only after, or can it be said that it was at the beginning of the crisis to feed and ramp up an American economic crisis in addition to all else? …the planned and orchestrated demolition of America.)

    An aspect of this that we are all concerned about, those who know who is behind the economic crisis is …how do we outst the FED and recover. We’d like a glimpse of what is up around the bend.

    The Fed is a scam, always has been, as it is in the UK, (BoE); and elsewhere. Take away its control, use it instead, Congress tell it what to do.
    The Fed and its friends caused this criminal shambles, they have enriched themselves through it at the expense of ordinary working Americans. Very highly qualified crooks is what they all are, in my opinion.
    Thank you.

      Leah,they have done a lot more than steal from the American people.Your wealth is in your people and when they create poverty through debt slavery,inflation,depreciation of currency etc they are reducing the awarenss intelligence thus aspirations of the US people,thus further diminishing wealth for all.They have the US economy in a downward spiral.

      Slavery does not raise the aspirations of any nation.They cannot be creative because they are too busy just surviving.This reduces total productivity in a modern world.

      The Fed is an abomination of the the last century which origins 200 yrs before that with the Rothschilds.It is a self serving atrocity that gives parasites a good name.

      At least repectable parasites know when to leave the host and find a new one.

    Bernanke,”Inflation is really the changes in consumer price levels..” Bernanke sees no inflation happening now even with the doubling of the money supply? So where is this newly generated money going,if the real economy of production and the consumer are not being stimulated by this contrived liquidity?

    Could the Fed be bailing out too many of it’s mates and also buying up devalued assets with tax payer debt money? How can you charge the US people interest on monopoly money [ie counterfeit money]and expect them to work harder for your own failure and avarice?

    So when inflation eventually does kick in,the Fed will make the tax payer cover the debt for the bail out of their own mates through higher interest rates? It is a win win for the Fed.Steal from the public by inflating the currency and steal again by charging interest on inflated money.

    If those in Congress who have failed to support HR1207 think that sitting on the fence will save them,then they’d better think again.This a moment for courage and clear thinking.Either they are with the American people,or they are against them.

      Talking to my friends in high places, the reason bernanke does not believe that doubling the money supply will increase inflation by the same amount is that the increased money supply was given directly to the uber rich owners of the fed.

      If you give money to a rich person, they will probably invest 95% of it into investments that are used to high trading value. For example, if you tried to buy $1,000,000,000 dollars of canned tuna, the price is going to be very very high. But lets say you tried to buy $1,000,000,000 (billion) dollars of exxon stock, the price of exxon will not vary that much if you spread the purchase over several days if not months.

      Conversely, if the fed’s newly printed counterfeit money goes into the poor households, new car prices would double, as well as gasoline, and other items poor people are likely to spend on.

      So it isn’t that hard to imagine bernanke when he does not expect inflation to rise as quick, because all of the money was given to rich, who will invest it mostly in non-consumer items.

      Understanding these issues helps when you have a major in economics..

        That conclusion does support the argument that Americans just paid off the gambling debt of the Bankstas, and they will be back for more.

        When will Americans collectively say…. “I’m just not paying for that, or that, or that, or that, nor that either!”

        Thor; You don’t need a major in economics to recognise a scam and a thief.Where were all the economists warning of this collapse [GFC] before it happened? They have no credibility.

          Ross,

          You are assuming many things. You are assuming that the financial crisis was an unintentional mistake by the big banks to obtain billions of dollars from the taxpayers. You assume that people outside the loop of this “mistake” had enough information to predict such an event.

          I would disagree with your assumptions that it was a “mistake” on the part of the banks. I believe high level banking owners and management, have planned the collapse of one or more of the failed financial institutions, that the true owners of the big banks have for years secretly withdrawn wealth from the banks and sold them worthless derivatives.

          The final outcome of the situation is as follows. Small investors out of the loop have purchased worthless stock, and have lost money. Large investors inside the loop have made tremendous money, because they are able to time the market from their inside information. Financial institutions have become more powerful, have been given more money, and have become more centralized. The large banks are more powerful than they have ever been. The large investors have made more money than they have ever made. Due to small investors losses, large investors have not only gained tremendous money, but now they have unimaginable money compared to the people who lost thousands.

          It isn’t about how much money you have. It is about how much MORE money you have. One million in 1950′s used to be alot of money. One million today isn’t much compared to what everyone else has.

    Posey and Grayson were two of the earliest co-sponsors of HR#1207. They really fried Ben, especially Alan Grayson, the rookie Rep (and a Democrat).

    Time to put the moneychangers at the FED out of work. I am willing to put my name on a lawuit to sue them for the trillions their illegal actions manipulating the US currency. They have not had any authority to do it since Kennedy signed an executive prohibiting them to act as the US federal reserve five months before he was murdered.
