Thanks for all the work you have put into this thread,wow!

I have a few questions. First has anyone found out who made the drawdown that Kanjorski told us about? I think its really a key to this whole deal and would love to know who done it. Second, do you think this was all carefully planned and by whom? This would explain two other events of 08 namely the 3rd id coming home for civil defence purposes and the event that Biden and other leaders warned us about.
The third question I have is did the bankers themselves plan this in order to purposely collapse the dollar or was the Fed caught in a trap which kinda seems that way to me being as they're desperately trying to save themselves by droping interest rates to near zero.
Even though I'm not an invester and I've been very fortunate not to be personally affected by this yet I'm still trying to figure out the who, wheres and whys and what may be in store for us in the future.
Through sheer personal financial prudence I was in a good position to weather this. I'm wondering should I take advantage yet and maybe buy a better house at this time with the fed rate so low or should I wait and spend all my money on a food store for the shtf scenario? I'm so uncertain now what to do, will the dollar even survive this? Does anybody know? I know I cant figure it out and I sure dont want to invest now with massive inflation appearing emminant but on the other hand there may never be a better time to buy than now. Maybe I should just try to refi whats left of my existing mortgage and hold tight. I dunno gives me one big headache,thanks again for the great thread.

I get very few visitor on this thread, but, I carry on...

Well as far as I can tell, there are 1 or 2 things going on...

1) US declared Bankrupy in 1933 and was "granted" a 75 Yr receivership

The $550B drawdown at the Fed...looks to have "originated" anywhere from the Middle East to far as I can trace can follow my train of thought with the link in the above thread...

or this thread...

2) It really is all about the CDO/CDS blowing up and then it's all you're hearing come out now...

It just could be the "Wizards of Wall St" built a "Bomb" years ago, and are only now setting off the Trapwire...a big accident/coincidence...

...or...a NWO move...on purpose...

I don't know what's going to happen...I wish I had the answers you seek...

I can amass all the info in the world (if I had the time/assistance) and make inferences, but, that's about it...

It would be nice, if someone was involved, sometime in the future, would spill the beans either after TSHTF and had nothing to lose or on a deathbed...

If I can be of anymore assistance feel free (for as long as possible under these circumstances) to ask...

Also want to say 'great work!' for all of these headlines.You must never get any sleep.

A question I have in addition to those you just tried to address is, do you have a list of banks that are in danger, or are weak?

I have looked around, but have read that the FDIC won't publish their list.

Thanks a lot!
