Is The Federal Reserve Out Of Control? Markets Across The Globe Brace For Impact As The Federal Reserve Powers Up The Printing Presses

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

What in the world is going on over at the Federal Reserve?    Has it gotten to the point where the Federal Reserve is completely and totally out of control?  There is increasing speculation in the financial community that the Federal Reserve is on the verge of unleashing another round of quantitative easing.  In fact, at their September meeting, Federal Reserve officials hinted very strongly that quantitative easing is very much on their minds when they stated that the Federal Open Market Committee “is prepared to provide additional accommodation if needed to support the economic recovery and to return inflation, over time, to levels consistent with its mandate.”  You might want to reread that quote a couple of times just to let it sink in.  Do you see what the Fed is saying there?  The Fed is actually saying that it has a mandate to maintain a certain level of inflation.  Not that this is a secret to anyone that has seriously studied the Federal Reserve.  Since 1913, inflation has constantly gone up, U.S. government debt has increased exponentially and the U.S. dollar has lost over 96 percent of its value.  But for Federal Reserve officials to openly state that a certain amount of inflation is part of their mandate is absolutely stunning.

Even though the U.S. economy is still in pretty decent shape at this point (for the moment at least), the Federal Reserve still seems obsessed with trying to stimulate it.

In the past, the Federal Reserve would just cut interest rates whenever the economy needed a bit of a boost, but at this point the Fed has cut rates to nearly zero.  There just isn’t any more room to cut rates.

So what else can the Federal Reserve do?

Well, it can create money out of thin air and use it to buy U.S. Treasuries, mortgage-backed securities and other assets.  This is known as quantitative easing, and many analysts fear that it is quickly becoming more than just an emergency measure.

Back in March 2009, the Federal Reserve announced that it would purchase $1.7 trillion worth of U.S. Treasuries and mortgage-backed securities over the next 6 to 9 months.  That was the first round of quantitative easing and Fed officials believe that it helped the U.S. economy avoid an even worse downturn.

But now Federal Reserve officials are talking about making quantitative easing a regular thing.  An article in the Wall Street Journal recently described the current thinking inside the Fed…. 

Rather than announce massive bond purchases with a finite end, as they did in 2009 to shock the U.S. financial system back to life, Fed officials are weighing a more open-ended, smaller-scale program that they could adjust as the recovery unfolds.

Quantitative easing that is open-ended?

What kind of insanity is this?

Is quantitative easing going to become a permanent part of our financial system?

And what does “smaller-scale” actually mean?

Well, according to James Bullard, the president of the St. Louis Federal Reserve Bank, “small-scale” is actually pretty darn large.  According to the Wall Street Journal, a “small-scale” quantitative easing program would be somewhere in the neighborhood of $100 billion a month….

Under a small-scale approach, Mr. Bullard says, the Fed might announce some still-undecided target for bond buying—say $100 billion or less per month. It would then make a judgment at each meeting whether continued action was needed.

If the Fed injected $100 billion a month into the economy through quantitative easing, that would mean that by the end of the year over 1 trillion dollars would have been created.

That does not sound like “small-scale” to me.

In fact, if the Federal Reserve purchased $1 trillion in U.S. Treasuries next year that would be an amount nearly equal to the total amount of new debt that the U.S. government plans to issue during the year.

Can anyone say Ponzi scheme?

When we get to the point where the Federal Reserve is “buying” a large percentage of new U.S. debt with money that is created out of thin air there is simply no denying the fact that the Fed is running a massive Ponzi scheme. 

But the truth is that the U.S. government is in so much debt and the U.S. economy is in so much trouble that something must be done.  It is really tempting to “inflate away” the debt and to pump up GDP figures with a flood of paper money, and Helicopter Ben Bernanke has certainly shown that he is not shy about pulling the trigger.

Of course more debt, more paper money and more inflation will only make our long-term economic problems even worse.

But right now Federal Reserve officials appear to be absolutely obsessed with the short-term.

And without a doubt world financial markets are certainly expecting a new round of quantitative easing to begin soon.

CNBC recently polled 67 economists, strategists and fund managers about what they think is going to happen.  The following is a summary of what CNBC found…. 

The Federal Reserve will boost its balance sheet by about half a trillion dollars over a six-month period beginning in November and keep it inflated for up to a year, according to a survey of leading markets participants by CNBC.

But many analysts believe that the Fed will take even more substantial action than that.  According to the Wall Street Journal, economists at Goldman Sachs are projecting that the Federal Reserve will end up buying at least another $1 trillion in assets during this next round of quantitative easing.

Stephen Stanley of Pierpont Securities in convinced that it will be even worse than that.  Stanley believes that the Fed will add another $3 trillion to its balance sheet by next August.  The following is what he recently told CNBC….

“If the Fed pulls the trigger, they will go big.”

In an interview with the Economic Times of India, Marc Faber painted an even bleaker picture….

“I believe that if the S&P in the US drops 15-20% to around 900-950, the Fed would come out not with this quantitative easing No. 2, but with quantitative easing No. 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 until the asset markets go up again. They are going to print and print and print.”

It seems like almost everyone is anticipating that the Federal Reserve is going to fire up the printing presses.

Now, even some of the Federal Reserve’s staunchest defenders are now abandoning them.

Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, perhaps the most respected financial columnist in the U.K., recently penned an article entitled “Shut Down the Fed (Part II)” in which he absolutely lambasted Bernanke and other Federal Reserve officials for considering another round of quantitative easing….

I apologise to readers around the world for having defended the emergency stimulus policies of the US Federal Reserve, and for arguing like an imbecile naif that the Fed would not succumb to drug addiction, political abuse, and mad intoxicated debauchery, once it began taking its first shots of quantitative easing.

In fact, Ambrose Evans-Pritchard is now openly accusing the Federal Reserve of being out of control….

So all those hillsmen in Idaho, with their Colt 45s and boxes of krugerrands, who sent furious emails to the Telegraph accusing me of defending a hyperinflating establishment cabal were right all along. The Fed is indeed out of control.

On behalf of those who believe that the Federal Reserve is “a hyperinflating establishment cabal”, I accept Ambrose Evans-Pritchard’s apology.

The truth is that the Federal Reserve is out of control.

The Federal Reserve system was designed to get the U.S. government into a perpetually expanding spiral of debt.  Wealth is slowly but surely transferred from the American people to the U.S. government (when we pay taxes) and ultimately into the hands of those who own U.S. government debt.

As long as the Federal Reserve system exists, U.S. government debt will keep going up, the value of the U.S. dollar will keep going down and wealth will be slowly transferred into the hands of the ultra-wealthy.

And why in the world would the American people allow an unelected, privately-owned central bank to run the U.S. economy, control the money supply, set interest rates and print all U.S. currency?

It simply does not make any sense.

The Federal Reserve has not been shy about declaring that it is “not an agency” of the U.S. government and not directly accountable to the American people.

So why do the American people put up with this kind of nonsense?

The truth is that the Federal Reserve has become far too powerful.  U.S. Representative Ron Paul recently told MSNBC that he believes that the Federal Reserve is actually more powerful than Congress…..

“The regulations should be on the Federal Reserve. We should have transparency of the Federal Reserve. They can create trillions of dollars to bail out their friends, and we don’t even have any transparency of this. They’re more powerful than the Congress.”

The truth is that the U.S. economy will never be fundamentally “fixed” simply by electing another “Bush” or another “Obama”.  Something needs to be done about the Federal Reserve system, but right now our politicians in Washington can’t even muster enough support to pass a bill to audit the Fed. 

So what do you think about the Federal Reserve?  Please feel free to leave a comment with your thoughts….

  • Patriot One

    By my count I think we are already on Quantitative Easing #13. The Federal Reserve has been out of control since 1913. Is there any glod left at Fort Knox?

    The markets are now addicted to Quantitative Easing. So you know they can’t stop. When they do, just like a drug addict the markets will crash.

    When that happens 90% of Americans will wonder what happened.

    Thomas Jefferson said in 1802:
    ‘I believe that
    banking institutions are more dangerous to
    our liberties than standing armies.
    If the American people ever allow
    private banks to control the issue of their
    currency, first by inflation, then by
    deflation, the banks and corporations that will
    grow up around the banks will deprive the people
    of all property – until their children

    They need to print some money for me. Where in the hell is my bailout? Through no fault of my own I am now grossly underemployed where 1 paycheck and 1/2 the other go for just paying the mortgage so I do not loose my home. Thank God for Food Stamps and Badger Care (WI state health ins for the poor) I used to be able to cover the mortgage with 1 check and some even left over with the second check able to pay bills. Now my phone gets disconnected every other month as I have to skip bills some months.

    I am really getting sick of these rich SOB’S complaining about paying more tax.

    The wealth needs to be spread around.

    “Something needs to be done about the Federal Reserve system, but right now our politicians in Washington can’t even muster enough support to pass a bill to audit the Fed. ”

    The Fed needs to be nationalized and the profits of currency and credit creation used for the common good … The current system is nothing but welfare for the rich along with a choke hold on governance …

    We will be paying for the republicans wars for decades. Republiocans will spend any amount on war yet nothing on social security or healthcare.

    The dollar will crumble thanks to the GOP.

    If we the people are not able to pressure our legislative representatives to put an end to the Federal Reserve soon, we will be in a world of sheet in the not too distant future (I know I am stating the obvious)

    What do I think about the Federal Reserve?

    It isn’t printable.

  • Something Wicked This Way Comes

    Behold. The 4th branch of government.

    Who owns the Fed?

    We are being sold into debt slavery by Ben Bernanke and the Fed. We, our children, and our children’s children will be paying interest via taxes on a debt we cannot repay. We do not even attempt to pay principal, budget for it, nor can we.

    Bernanke prefers screwing the debt free savers by printing money for the debt ridden masses. Anything to fight deflation.

    The only collateral the FED can pledge is our governments willingness to sell it’s citizens into debt and tax slavery for decades to come.

    There is also significant evidence that as the FED injects liquidity into member banks through Permanent Open Market Operations, the banks in turn are buying the stock market. In fact, the only traders now are member banks (remember the repeal of Glass-Steagal) and computer guided algorithms that brought us the flash crash in May. They are creating the illusion of fiscal health. In fact the market trends up on POMO days like Tuesday…even though all of the market news was bad…consumer confidence, gross shipping weights of goods, all down. Yet the market went up…retail investors are leaving in droves. Brokerage houses, and hedge funds are drying up and reporting horrible earnings.

    It is all a deception- a mirage. One last effort to woo retail investors back. Screw the banks. Pay off your debt. Refuse to take out a loan on anything. They can’t create money if you refuse to borrow it.

  • NoNams

    The Fed is a child with a nuclear bomb in his hands.

    Stop it, this monopoly-game is over, and we all need a new one…

    How many trillion dollars do you want to buy for your democratic freedom?

    How many years to understand ? This is the End, and you Americans Boys, you are specialists in the Happy End!

    But if you prefer Hell, we can not do anything for you.

    STOP THE FED. NOW. IMMEDIATELY, for you, for us.


  • digital_dreamer

    These Feds are so out of touch with reality.

    Like others here and elsewhere, I’ve been unemployed for almost a year with no unemployment, selling possessions to pay rent on my 2 BR apartment and buy a little food.
    I finally got a part time job last month that will pay rent and electric, but little else. I only have the necessities: rent, electric, and internet. (Yes, internet is a necessity if you’re going to ebay off your possessions.) No landline or cell phone and no cable (I don’t have a TV or want one). Food consists of oats, potatoes and any commodities my mother receives, but doesn’t want.

    I’d like to see Feds try to live like this. Think about this: They are paid by our tax dollars. But, as more and more of us are no longer gainfully employed, that means fewer tax dollars for the Gov. This cannot keep going. This situation is not sustainable. Something’s got to give.

    This system of things is going down and will never recover, just as predicted millenniums ago. The Anglo-American world power, as it exists today, will be no more. It will be replaced and I am so looking forward to that day.


  • mark mcbee

    The FED is totally ***** up the economy. They are pumping $30 billions into the stock market this week to jack up the price after the flash crash of Apple, NetFlix and other companies. Get out of stock and long term bonds now. It is all rigged. There is no longer a free market.

  • Suetonious

    The case is settled and QEII is about to set sail. Inflation is baked in, what with Fed policy declarations concerning the desire for inflation to avoid deflation.

    The Deflationistas are sulking in various parts of the bow section of the titanic US economy, when they’re not periodically climbing a deck or two to keep their asse(t)s from slipping underwater.

    Meanwhile, the Hyperinflationistas are whooping it up in the stern section, lighting cigars with worthless $100 dollar bills before tossing them over the side, snickering at the Deflationistas in the sinking bow as the stern section rises to lift them and their piles of gold and silver high over the surface. They know they have won decisively, and are highly confident about the future. After all, what could possibly go wrong?

    In the interests of full disclosure – I am a Hyperinflationista, but the only safe place to be – is in one of those lifeboats maintaining a safe distance from the undertow and the panicking masses, which means overseas.

  • Laurentiu

    From your article I fail to understand what will happen if the FED prints more money?? Why are they crazy? As long as the world keeps accepting the paper money all is OK in my opinion?

  • emma

    Man things getting interesting now, I bought gold at 870 now look where it is. Up over 1300 this guy was right.

    Check out his video below. he is calling for higher prices. When the SHTF then what??. Many most the fat obese people in the US are so asleep. They aint got a chance.

  • Last Days

    I (not an expert) would surmise a currency is only vaguely related to the country that prints it. Everyone makes a quick judgment whether a certain society looks sustainable – whethers there is wealth there to back up their debts. Since the high tech world has moved to India and China I would say the rest of the world will just have to rely on agriculture and the paltry remaining natural resources they might have control of. Isn´t it obvious the US is relying on chutzpah first and vague military meanderings in the Middle East second to prop up its standing in the world? Or are there other powers propping us up? Let Helicopter Ben print all he wants, there will be a reset anyway.

    We the common people are all in this together and have to fight the Big Bankster and Big Govt Cabal which is made up of BOTH GOP AND DEMONCRATS!!! We have to uniteas “we the people, we the Americans”, not as Dems or
    GOP. It is time to turn away from both the Dems and GOP.They have both screwed us over. Whoever is in power we end up getting poorer and the Cabal-Rich keep getting richer. There’s plenty of ultra-rich Dems. Just look at Hollywood which is 99% Demoncrat.
    Look at the unions, they are 99% Dem and they like the Big Banksters contribute $millions to the Dem campaigns. And there’s the same damn Cabals over on the GOP side also. To fix our situation we need to do the following and it will be short-term painful, but will get us back our great American economy:

    1. Kill off the Demoncratic and GOP parties by not electing any of them. Vote for Independents.

    2. Kill off the Federal Reserve Bank. They can make counterfeit money and not go to jail, in the $Trillions. If you make a single $20 counterfeit bill see how long you go to jail for.

    4. Make money only of silver & gold, which is the law of the land in the U.S. Constitution which has been allowed to be broken for nearly 80 years now. The Big Govt Cabal has been breaking the law for 80 years.

    Silver & gold as money is the ultimate in individual liberty and freedom. With a purely fiat paper (or electronic bank account) money system like we have now the money issuers have
    total control over us. They can control how much wealth they will “allow” us to have in such a manner that you don’t even
    know you are being controlled. They cannot do this if money is made of only gold & silver because they cannot just “create” gold & silver at will, by fiat, by the printing press, or by adding a few more zero’s to their “bank account balance”.
    Wouldn’t it be nice if you could just add a couple zeros to your checking account balance to pay your bills and buy a nice yacht?
    This is exactly what the Fed Reserve does for the Govt so the Govt can “pay its bills”.

    So if you want your economic prosperity, liberty, and freedom back the #1 thing you have to fight for is this last point, that money be only made of gold and silver. They represent much more than just money – gold & silver are the ultimate bearers of individual
    liberty and freedom, and that is why the Govt hates gold & silver and suppresses its price through the Big Bankster Cabal, so that
    they can have control over you by how much wealth they “allow” you to have. Why do you think FDR confiscated all gold in America back in 1933? For the good of the people? Bullshit – for the good of the Big Bankster & Govt Cabal that has been f*cking us over for 80 years now.

    It is time now to fight back and re-take control of our economic prosperity, liberty, and freedom.

    “..a govt for the people, by the people…”

    God bless the U.S. Constitution and God bless an America that lives by the Constitution, and damn all the MF’rs that have insidiously stripped us of our prosperity and liberty.

  • not-a-geek

    Banks … including the Fed … have taken over the world – he who controls the money, has the power. That has been their goal since day one. The fiat money system is in collapse and anyone who has been stockpiling precious metals will soon find themselves in dire straights unless they can accumulate some quickly. The end will likely come before the end of next year … maybe sooner. We’re in for a rough ride.

  • mbabsit

    You people can whine, blame, and call your legislative puppets all you want, but this has been going on since the Fed’s inception in 1913, when the Fed was signed into law by DEMOCRAT progressive Wilson. The dollar was pulled off the gold standard by DEMOCRAT FDR for his failed projects. Silver was no longer a currency by DEMOCRAT Kennedy. With no precious metals backing the dollar, it was easy for both sides to inflate. We are now at the stage where, no matter what politicians do, we WILL have a hyperinflation. Where we are now was predicted by Harry Browne in his “How You Can Profit From the Coming Monetary Crisis” (1974).

    Instead of sitting here whining, do you people have gold (for wealth storage)? Do you have pre-1965 silver coins (for trade)? Did you store up food? Have you taken steps to make sure you have a place to flee to, and packed a G.O.O.D. (Get Out Of Dodge) bag? Or, are you going to just sit there, and believe that your usurper-in-chief, who art in Washington, will rescue you?

  • Kevin

    And stockholders of the Fed get a guaranteed 6% dividend…beats my 0.35% money market account!

    Federal Reserve Act
    Section 7. Division of Earnings:
    “After all necessary expenses of a Federal reserve bank have been paid or provided for, the stockholders of the bank shall be entitled to receive an annual dividend of 6 percent on paid-in capital stock.”

    Start preparing the lifeboats, fellow Americans.
    Prepare your survival plan now – in October, before it’s too late. You’ll need food, water, shelter, and all your savings converted into hard assets. The global situation is deteriorating rapidly. Look at the civil unrest, strikes, in Europe happening right now. They’re the first to collapse; next, the U.S. I don’t know how Asia turns out. Their regimes will manage to survive, I think.

    The stock market crashes before the end of the year, followed by the mother of all financial depressions in 2011. This depression will be a hyperinflationary depression (deflation followed quickly by hyperinflation as the Fed prints itself into a coma).

  • messenger

    “Even though the U.S. economy is still in pretty decent shape at this point,” when this was stated your credibility flew right out the window. Please tell us how the economy is still in decent shape. Record unemployment and food stamp usage and economy is ok if you say so.

  • Tom


    Voting for independents is a waste. If you can afford to campaign, you are owned. Look at the tea baggers. They are funded by billionaires that are using them to campaign against benefits for us and lower taxes for the rich.

    Also your post is littered with religous over tones. If your agenda is to push ypour religion, it is a loss of freedom. Id rather have big goverment as opposed to big churches. They will take your freedom and push one agenda.

  • Mr Carpenter

    To mix metaphores, the wheels are falling off, but it is no matter since wheels aren’t needed as the whole kit and kaboodle goes over the edge of the cliff to the jagged rocks below.

    FDR, the 2nd or 3rd worst prez we ever had, once said “in politics, there are no accidents.” With that in mind, it must be realized that the powers-that-be have ruined this nation intentionally. So after most of us die off, what happens to them? They deserve whatever it is they get, and God won’t be mocked.

    Frankly, I’ve grown tired of trying to tell people (literally for 30 years) to stop, think and vote for good instead of the lesser of two evils (which is – duh – still evil). I’ve been looked at as if I were the nutjob. Well, my saying “um, told you so” while standing in the wreckage of what was once a great and Christian nation, is not what I wanted to end up doing, trust me.

    Frankly, a morally, spiritually and fiscally bankrupt peoples cannot and will not vote decent people to lead them; that’s been proven to my satisfaction over the past 50 plus years on this earth. In other words, we’re going to get what’s coming to us. What ye sow, so shall ye reap. Yep; God said it, I believe it.

    After Bible study last evening, we were discussing how close we apparently are to total collapse and my friend said something rather profound. I said the most likely people to survive (if left alone) will be the Amish; most everyone else will quite literally die. To which he said “yes, the meek shall inherit the earth.”

  • Mr Carpenter

    Messenger, the writer’s credibility is not damaged by the statement “Even though the U.S. economy is still in pretty decent shape at this point” because over 2/3 of the people have jobs at this point. Most of us still have electricity, water, roofs over our heads, etc.

    In other words, the patient is still alive, though on life-support and with a probably terminal illness; but miracles do occur sometimes.

    Saying he has no credibility because a doctor states the obvious “the patient in ICU is still alive” is only showing you to be the one without credibility, partner…

  • Mike

    This was NEVER a christian nation and NEVER will be. YOu guys want to live in a theocracy should move to the middle east. Let intelligent peopple be left alone with your non-sense.

    Religion only spreads hate and division.

  • Tom

    I do not want to live in a “christian Nation”. I always vote against that type. They want to take our freedom and force their religion on us like they do in Iran. Christians are not good neighbors.

    We need to have real freedom and a real democracy.

  • Charles

    Private central banking should never have been allowed to take hold in USA and needs to be abolished. The Treasury should print the money through Congress and it would be interest-free and therefore income tax would not be needed to pay that interest. This is how things were in 1776 and life was good.

  • Charles

    QE is a drug. Imagine what life is going to be when we become fully dependent on QEs. Hell, why even work for a living, just wait for the Fed to buy everything that goes sour–with counterfieted money. What a ***** laugh. This sure isnt the USA i ever knew but it certainly is how drug dealers operate. I want to know how we can stop it before the govt stops us from trying.

  • DMyers

    Alan Keyes said it best: “Has this country gone mad!? You don’t have that money!” He said that after describing how the government used to argue over a limited budget, and yet it had just created, in the 2008 crisis, several trillion dollars out of thin air. This was in the famous video in which he struck out at the birth certificate issue and called Obama a radical communist.

    When considering the Fed and money printing, doesn’t this seem like the question begging to be asked: “Has this country gone mad?” When Keyes asked it, the tone was not rhetorical. This is a real question. Has it? Madness is, in basic terms, a disconnection from reality.

    “You can’t fool Mother Nature.” Did a famous philosopher say that, or did I hear it on an old TV commercial. At the moment I’m not sure, but in either case, it is true.

    Suppose you could fool Mother Nature for a while, or create the appearance of doing so (like a magician). Let’s say you figured it out so well that it actually seemed as if it were working.

    I say, even then, you can’t fool Mother Nature. You’re little margin of exception will evaporate suddenly, and Mother Nature will be right in your face.

    Some people call this whole Fed business a Ponzi Scheme. I love applying that term to it as much as anyone, but in fact this is something beyond that, perhaps best described as madness. It just seems to me that all Ponzi dynamics are now gone. No one in his right mind could even imagine that there is a growing feed source of any type. The new investors and classical sources of growth (energy, agriculture, population) have stopped growing. They’re on the verge of shrinking, having reached their natural limits.

    This is a Ponzi Scheme type phenomenon being carried out without even the pretension that there is some emergent, growing input to feed the Ponzi illusion and pay out to the early investors. This is, on its face, a leap of faith. No guaranties and no historical precedent. Good Luck!!

  • Rod

    “Start preparing the lifeboats, fellow Americans.Prepare your survival plan now ”

    Methinks you’re WAY too late there, like 3-5 years.
    Trees and crops don’t grow in months – you need years, and self-sufficiency is the #1 key to survival now.
    If you’re only just realising the collapse is months away it’s way too late for you I’m afraid…

  • The Federal Reserve is NOT OUT OF CONTROL. They are clearly IN CONTROL. They print money on OUR printing presses then purchase interest bearing bonds from the US government. Guess who gets to keep the interest on these bonds? Our elected criminals and fools have given a private corporation (The Federal Reserve) a LICENSE TO STEAL.

  • TnAndy

    I can’t understand the surprise here….I thought you folks were sharper than the average Joe 6pack.

    When you have a monetary system based on debt issued money, it must constantly expand to pay the interest on the previous money, which in turn repeats the cycle until the borrowers can no longer stand it, then it collapses.

    That is what the FED is all about, providing it’s owners with a grand life style and accumulation of physical wealth along the way until the collapse, at which point they pull out the playbook, cook up a “new and improved” currency and continue the game.

    They hide behind a wall of financial bullshit terminology, hoping no one will see how simple the game is, and that the end game is inevitable.

  • Dennis from Fresno

    While Americans are busy watching new season shows, Europeans protest against austerity measures across Europe. Americans must put their anti-depressants to the side and really see what is going on. The real unemployment is over 20% now, but the govt. reports only half of it because many people ran out of their benefits. Corporations and banks run the country, they live extravagant lifestyles as soon as they run low on cash there comes Federal Reserve to help, to continue their party.

  • Snooky

    “When we get to the point where the Federal Reserve is “buying” a large percentage of new U.S. debt with money that is created out of thin air there is simply no denying the fact that the Fed is running a massive Ponzi scheme.”

    CNBC should showcase the Fed on American Greed. Oh yeah, they have no problem calling out these small time ass clowns, yet one of the biggest robberies in the history of the world is taking place in plain sight and nothing. They would probably have to upgrade the show to “World Greed” just for the Fed.

    One thing is clear, I have a hard time wrapping my brain around this one. Seriously! I can’t comprehend this level of evil. I just can’t. Why people choose to leave this planet with crimes such as these on their soul is beyond me.

    Well, the bright side to all this is, they can’t defy all the laws of the universe. I just hope I’m around to see it!

  • Seth

    Ah yes-the plan is going along just as I suspected. Those evil banksters at the Fed, they will be the fall guys that will be replaced by a much fairer and better system, one that is honest and open. Those that blame the Fed and global banks are just pawns in a much bigger game. The system to come will make the Fed look like small potatoes.

  • Is the FED out of control? I’d say no, they’re still IN control and that’s the problem. If we end this fractional reserve ponzi scheme the FED perpetuates this country might stand a chance of survival.

    Look at it this way- by 2050, 50% of our jobs will not be needed. We can revolt against technological progress or we can embrace it and use it as a benefit for all of society. We are already quite capable of producing everything we need to live a decent life. We have to rethink the future, where less people are needed to work. A Basic Income Guarantee is a good start. Others have proposed a National Dividend to fill the gap between what we produce and the income we receive to purchase those products. It’s time we took a good look at the unfair and IMHO immoral advantage the financial system has imposed on the citizens of the world. We can have a sustainable world where no one goes hungry or we can continue down the path of fascism where one percent of the population hoards wealth and disposes the masses that make their wealth possible. We need bold measures and the FED simply doesn’t fit into a fair and just world.

    Here is an excellent showing of money and why the gold standard might not be good. Also, our governemtn money system is based on debt, from private institutions. This is long, but extremely important historically. Break out a blanket, and warm up some hot chocolate. This should be required viewing in public schools(which wouldn’t ever happen)

    The FED is absolutely not out of control. No way! It is operating completely according to plan.

    In order to establish a One World Government (which almost exists now) it is necessary to equalize all the world’s nations, bolstering the impoverished ones, and bringing the prosperous ones down to their knees.

    Think things are bad now/ Well, the FED has become fully committed to its program, obviously, so we ain’t seen nuthin’ yet!

    One of the main things about the One World Government is that it would be a mistake to expect to see some major personality giving Hitler type speeches and making shows of force. No, this new type of government is operated through many controlled corporations, black OP organizations, and established Central Banks, from behind the scene. It’s an invisible leadership, of hidden dictators.

    Insightful article….just to add a fact not
    many may realize: that the Fed “loans” The U.S. Treasury money and then charges interest.
    All this interest (paid by U.S. taxpayers)
    goes to wealthy European bankers…thus the reason U.S. has an “income tax”; to pay that
    never ending debt to the foreign bankers(aka,
    The Fed). It’s insanity; JFK tried to stop the
    Fed…look what it got him.

    Against the Federal Reserve get rid of them, and we need to fling the doors open to free markets, get rid of Obama and his communist crew, just throw them in jail for what they are doing, and get rid of the rino’s too. Free the market place.

    TnAndy –

    Well spoken. You have just summed up in a couple paragraphs how the present U.S. economy works (or should I say doesn’t). Many a college student has spent hours in class studying economics, only to have this simple truth elude them, due to all of the deception and techno-financial babble.

  • Every dollar is debt, and We the People are obligated to pay interest on the ever increasing number of dollars in circulation. Though our Founding Fathers had a different vision, our current leaders (president, vice-president, senators and representatives) seemingly support this arrangement. Obama (change you can believe in) is just another in a long line of servitude presidents.

  • Mr Carpenter

    Mike your statement saying that this (American) was never a Christian nation is typical newspeak from libtards!

    Try opening your eyes and looking at history, and you’ll see that the very first President of the United States (Peyton Randolph 1775-1776) was a Christian. A Lutheran, in fact.

    For those of you with any kind of understanding, you might want to realize that Lutherans cannot be Masons.

    To make a long story short, our nation had a bloodless coup in 1789, and the Masons took over. Then rewrote history claiming that Washington was the first President! Virtually all Presidents and most of the powers that be have been Masons since….

    Just so you know.

    Was the tea Party telling you to spend money like a drunken sailor?

    No amount of ‘splaining will help a scleroto-lib understand anything. You have to show him a big juicy hamburger and a giant bottle of beer and rub your belly. Then he will understand all that he is capable of understanding. The rest is noise to him.

  • J.D.

    If a private business operates under unscrupulous policies, it is reasonable for the well informed consumer of integrity to cease monetary support by discontinuing their personal money flow to that business,in effect “taking my business elsewhere”. It seems to me, finding the means to apply this philosophy on a mass scale (as in a “boycott”) to the Fed would be the most effective, passive way of getting one’s message across.

    who cares what religion some nut bag president was 200 years ago?

    Mr. Carpenter wants to force his weird right wing religion on the rest of us. religion is for the weak minded. Keep your ignorant beliefs and divisive attitudes at home.

    America deserves freedom and not to lose right from the religous fascist ruining the USA.

  • These are scary times. Luckily I anticipated these problems by a few years. Check out my site at for a clue as to the problem. Remember..The future belongs to the prepared!

  • Jefferson said it – the bankers will impoverish us. Time for a revolution – dissolve the Fed NOW

  • t

    too late to stop this moving train. The elite have us at our balls. Only street fights and riots could help. But Americans are too numb and tv-controlled to stand up. And if they dare they will be crushed by the worlds top riot police

    this is going to be ugly
