With all this going on it is amazing to see characters like George W. Bush and Henry Paulson state that the economy is doing just fine and not to worry about what’s happening. White House Press Secretary Dana Perino also stated at a recent press conference that she is not allowed to talk about the value of the U.S. Dollar and that all questions pertaining to the U.S. Dollar needs to be directed towards the U.S. Treasury. Of course Paulson the U.S. Treasury Secretary has absolutely no control over the value of the U.S. Dollar because that responsibility lies with the Federal Reserve since they set interest rates and fix the value of the currency. Amazingly when Ben Bernanke the head of the Federal Reserve testified in front of Congress, he directed any questions about the value of the U.S. Dollar to the U.S. Treasury despite the fact that he controls the value of money through their policies. This is absurd. They treat us like we are a bunch of idiots, and this is an obvious attempt by the establishment not to talk about the collapsing currency which is one of the biggest issues of the day right now.
