    all Americans need to watch this. We look at our present distruction then we will understand who the haters are. They hate all of us through the course of recorded history. Deny it.

      They hate us for our freedoms.

    Bernanke is not in one iota going to change his policies. if he does then the whole thing goes down, also his big bank pals will have him terminated. Its to late now, the economy cannot survive with out continual QE. Protection for this is hard assets like Gold and silver, rural land etc

    I have cash in the bank. I’ve been 95% cash for eight years running, since 2005 when I saw the real estate crash coming. I’m not financial genius! But I saw -what was going on in real state- was not going to last. The whole mortgage swindle was as obvious as the nose on my face. So I sold. And I’m glad I did.

    “Too big to fail” has meant to me -having to sit back and watch this FED steal from the value of what I’ve made throughout my lifetime -to keep these bankrupt bankers afloat. Bernanke is devaluing my retirement with all his free money for the banks. It’s theft. He’s not saving the economy!

    Now listen! There are people out there who are making the very same mistake in today’s marketplace. They’re thinking the upward trend is going to go all the way to the moon, or Andromeda! It cannot happen. I’m here to tell you specifically, get your fat butt out of Gold, while the getting is still good. If you’re worried about the dollar, buy Canadian dollars. But get out of Gold. Gold is being turned into a weapon of mass destruction for sovereigns who think there is value in the yellow metal. It’s a mousetrap. The same people who were swindling the country with real estate are now swindling the country with the yellow metal. It’s as obvious as the nose on my face.

    None of these people are too big to fail in my book. There are a great many of them -I’d personally- like to see lined up in a ditch, blindfolded, shoved onto their knees -and shot- dead.

    Everyone who is working for the Federal Reserve should be on the most wanted list, because these Americans are stealing wealth from every hardworking American. They are stealing it to lavish on their swindling banker buddies. I am sixty-three. I’ve NEVER had a loan or a credit card in my life. I’ve raised two sons. I’ve lived in the nicest home in town. I’ve always run my own businesses. I don’t think much of bankers. Bankers don’t make anything. A bank is a place to deposit money. That’s all.

    Don’t tell me these people are too big to fail, and then start devaluing my life savings to save their sorry hides. They should be shot. If they were living in Singapore or China, they would have been shot!

    Play by the rules. Because when you stop playing by the rules, the honest people are going to come looking for you. And with a good conscience, they’re going to make you pay for your misdeeds.

    Off with their heads!

    Jan. 17 (Bloomberg) — In today’s “Single Best Chart,” Bloomberg’s Scarlet Fu displays how inflation has increased in the 100 years since the creation of the Federal Reserve. She speaks on Bloomberg Television’s “Bloomberg Surveillance.”

    This same video was posted on ZeroHedge. I read the comments and was very dismayed with the mud thrown at Warren. By far, the comments there were cynical and dismissive.

    No matter how cynical we become (for good reason), if we don’t applaud people for saying the right things when they say them, then we discourage future would-be do-gooders from ever attempting to make any improvements as well. If the ZH crowd is that discouraged that they can’t even applaud this, then maybe they’ve taken the ZH “long enough time line..survival rate” tag line too much to heart.

    • wunsacon

      A few of the ZH comments I liked:

      – “If Ron Paul had asked these questions instead of Elizabeth Warren, most of the people on the board would be applauding.”

      – “I swear the IQ on this site has dropped 20 points over the past 3 years.”

      (FD: I’m paraphrasing.)

    This is an old clip showing admittance of the CIA that they use the mainstream media to manipulate the thoughts and ideas of American citizens in the USA. This has not changed obviously and is good to know happened in the past due to our reality today.
