Was suposed to be a momentous occasion. Ben Bernanke was supposed to enlighten America as to what the Fed is up to.

Remember the Fed?

The one printing all the Monopoly Money??

Ben Bernanke hit the television screens on the same day Obama released his long form birth certificate. And guess what??? Bernanke said NOTHING.......and the masses didn't notice a difference!


Consensus on Bernanke speech: Nothing new
Fed Chief Ben Bernanke’s first press conference offered changes in economic forecasts, but at least three economy watchers say not much new was learned about the economy.

Bernanke, head of the Federal Reserve Board, conducted the first-ever press conference Wednesday (April 27) as part of an effort to increase transparency with the federal agency primarily responsible to set national monetary policy in a way that stabilizes prices and maximizes employment.

Waterboard whom? Bernanke or Obama's Siamese Twin separated at birth leaving all those scars on Obama's head.

Surely we can't waterboard Obama. He is doing what he's supposed to do. Divert public attention away from important issues.................LIKE WHAT THE HELL IS THE FED UP TO??!!!

Ah, it must've taken Bernanke all of five minutes to put together the speech of his first ever press conference to let America know which way the dollar is headed.

Next week, when someone sets off a nuclear device in Libya, Obama will send out a news memo as to whether or not his father was gay.

NEW YORK, April 27 (Reuters) - U.S. crude futures rose on
Wednesday as oil's attraction as a hedge against inflation
remained intact after the Federal Reserve gave no indication
the central bank was close to tightening its currently loose
monetary policy.

kind of on the same general topic I guess.Here in Ireland there was an investigation in to why we are now bankrupt.We were told nothing new.The main points are.. we behaved like herd animals,thats the term used in the report.we all fell inro a cycle of greed and bought houses we couldnt afford,all our fault.And encouraged each other its ok.

Now I know thats true to a degree,but where did the money come from that was given out like candy>? you were encouraged to take out huge loans and live beyond your means cause the money was there,but where did it come from? Europe.Now Europe,well Germany and the IMF own us. finegael (current government)politicians have come out and actually said it without sugarcoating it,

but no one is discussing that the herd mentality is predictable,and maybe someone planned all this in advance,knowing exactly how to rob us of our future,

The check is due at the "dinner table" everyone has gotten fat and happy. Nobody wants to even look at the "bill" and some are trying to sneak out of the restaurant. It's we the people who are going to have to go in the back and "wash the dishes" to pay this thing off.

Did anybody realy think Bernanke was going to lay it all out on the table and be the "man" who was responsable for this country going "middle east" on Washington D.C.???

Jefferson is rolling over in his grave.... God help us all!!!
Hang on folks this is going to be bumpy landing.

Not for currency...

But how about toilet paper?

Actually Bernanke said a bunch without really saying anything.

Bernanke has basically come out and said, "I'm the man that is going to be in charge because I have control over America's monetary policy." or "Meet the new boss same(literally) as the old boss."

At this point I wouldn't be worried much about what Bernanke and the Fed are doing because they are going to do what they are going to do, we have no way to control what the Fed does. I'd be watching congress and what kind of laws they are going to pass on "advice" of what Bernanke says.

Truth of the matter is that we are heading for a brick wall and we can impact the Brick Wall at 150 mph and all die or we can impact the wall at 35 mph and be badly injured, but we'll be alive. Choose one.

Bingo. QE XIV will be the next announcement to come out of the fed. On the same day Obama will declare himself dictator and burn down congress.

I think I should also add that there is no 35 mph option. We have already been bought and sold to China. Our brakes went out when we started giving trillions to the banks.

Just a matter of time before it starts coming out that federal buildings have been sold to Chinese owned companies and land that has been tied up from being exploited for its oil and other natural resources start being exploited by Chinese companies.

Ried and his buddies aren't over in China meeting with Chinese officials just because they want to keep diplomatic relations good. They are figuring out how much they are able to raise the debt ceiling by without getting on China's bad side anymore than we already are.

Also a good excuse for him and his buddies to "give back" to his business allies that have supported his campaign over the years by spending money at the Casino's they own over in China.

Actually, this is a common misconception. The top three owners of US debt are as follows:
3. China
US debt holdings: $895.6 billion
2. Other Investors/Savings Bonds
US debt holdings $1.458 trillion
1. Federal Reserve and Intragovernmental Holdings
US debt holdings: $5.351 trillion

The number one holder of US debt is the Fed. If you still think that the fed is a government agency, then at the very least this presents an extreme conflict of interest for the bank that loans us every cent of our money to be gobbling up our debt.

If however, you think as many do, that the fed is no more federal than the federal express; then the plot of this story takes a turn for the insidious.....

Thanks for that bit of info.

A turn for the insidious... say, like.... purposely letting the western economies fail? I guess the goal of this would be to bring the world under one monetary policy, but they aren't going to get that unless they give something up to China, that is where my posts come from.

Although the info that you have provided sort of reinforces my point about China soon to own a lot of what is currently federal owned land. The reason why I say this is because most of the countries that make up the number 2 position in our debt holders the US dollar will still be worth more than their currency for while short of the Fed getting on TV and saying, we quit. The Fed isn't going to do anything drastic that will put them in a position to be the victim of populous rage. That leaves China with the most control over our country as far as monetary policy goes.

The thing that really grinds my gears is that it was all planned out, all the major banks that we are giving money to knew what was going on they just decided to ride the wave for as long as they could go and knew they could loot the treasury when the bottom fell out of economy.

Just about all that has been said here speaks of the truth.

Goes back to what I have always said about the Obama presidency: He doesn't have a 'Monica Lewinsky' to tie up the media and keep the public attention hypnotized. But he sure does have everything else, and even more than 'American Idol' ever had at its television ratings' peak.

He's the 'Watch the Right Hand' while the 'Left Hand Does All the Shopping.'

There's a whole lot of shrewd hanky-panky going on in the Making of a President. I'm wondering how many black, or black and white candidates were interviewed for the job of president on down the road, and about when did some group of economic powerhouses begin profiling the schematic of the persona that is today Obama.

Was it during the Clinton administration (and the Sam Walton era) that the 'Obama' profile was developed? Not to forget that George Bush Sr. was once Director of the CIA.

Put it this way, the people who make the president, they have an uncanny understanding of the psychology of the American people. One that is better than the American people understand of themselves as a whole.

Well, hell. Osama bin Laden has a better grasp on American psychology than Americans can describe of themselves. How the hell did Osama bin Laden know that within eight years of 9/11, America would have an 'Obama' as president?

When you get down to it, there's not much need of electronic mind control. It's a lot of good old Madison Avenue elbow grease.

Look at the bright side: the average American still has a larger vocabularly than the best trained Mynah Bird. We can damn well talk ourselves into just about any painted corner.

Are y'all storing up those canned and dry goods, that ammo, got your weapons gift wrapped in camolene....and plenty of water. I'm in the process of sinking a second well on my property. Putting in an old fashioned hand pump, just in case there's no electricity to work the submersible one horse power pump. Hey, could build me a windmill to pump water?

The feudal period of modern America is gon'na be some fun.
