Do you feel it too….
That the lunatics have taken over the asylum?
What the heck is going on in Washington!
Helicopter Ben Bernanke and his cosseted cronies, sipping vintage brandy while jobs and homes disappear across our once great nation, wondering where next to waste your hard earned money, all for the greater good of the country (at a huge fee for them of course).
Quick phone call to the boss, add a couple zeros to the national debt….. More Brandy, anyone?
Nice job so far, Ben!
I’d put a figure on the amount of money thrown at the problem they created, but by the time you read this, it would be ancient history.
I’d look for someone to blame. But the truth is, they’re all in cahoots in one way or another. Trade-offs and deals you and I will never get to hear about, but we’re sure as heck paying for.
Something’s not right….. right?
Now, I’m not a big conspiracy guy, but I do ask questions. Lots of them.
Here’s a big one.
It’s about Europe, and they mess they are making of their currency. Of course, what happens here affects them, what they do helps or hurts us at home.
So this is important;
Beware indeed, the Pinstriped Hijackers
Does the name Mario Draghi mean anything to you? Lucas Papademos?….Mario Monti?
These are the guys running Europe.
Democratic countries, one and all.
Except, not one of them was elected by ‘the people’
Here’s the thing;….
Monti is the new Prime Minister of Italy. He’s smart, respected. He knows about money. In fact, he was an International Advisor to American bank Goldman Sachs in 2005.
Mario Draghi is the new European Central Bank (ECB) President. He’s head honcho at one of the world’s most important financial institutions. The decision he makes for the Europeans affects taxes, money flow, worldwide trade.
Oh, he was International Vice Chairman for Europe between 2002 and 2005…for Goldman Sachs.
Lucas Papademos is the New Greek Prime Minister. He was President of the ECB from 2002- 2010, and also comes from…..you guessed it, Goldman Sachs
Not just those three…get this:
Petros Christodoulos – Holds a BSc from the Athens school of commerce and economics. He is the current Chairman of Greece Public Debt Management agency…..and he worked at Goldman Sachs.
On August 8th 2010, German Newspaper ‘Der Spiegel’ reported that Goldman Sachs helped Greece cover up part of its whopping deficit, lighting the touch paper for the end of the European dream. The deal was reportedly done via a currency swap, using artificially high exchange rates.
Instead of prison, Now one of their guys is in charge of the purse strings of Europe.
Peter Sutherland, a former EU commissioner and Ireland’s former attorney-general. One of the key players overseeing the bankruptcy of Ireland… Is the Chairman of Goldman Sachs International.
Otmar Issing was on the Executive Board of the European Central Bank between 1998 and 2006.
Issing developed the ‘two pillar’ approach to monetary policy decision making that the European Central Bank (ECB) has adopted.
Make no mistake, he was a key architect of a foolhardy experiment that is bankrupting European states one by one.
Oh, Otmar Issing is also an advisor for Goldman Sachs.
Former Goldman Sachs employees include Robert Rubin and Henry Paulson who served as United States Secretary of the Treasury under Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, respectively, as well as Mark Carney, the governor of the Bank of Canada since 2008.
So the guys who made the mess (and made themselves millions) are the guys being paid millions to clean it up.
Sound right to you? – Beware indeed the Pinstripe Hijackers.
It all Looks Pretty Hopeless – Except,
Because the more of a mess Obama, Bernanke, Monti and their scurrilous mob make of governments, economies and countries, the higher the value of safe assets like Gold, Silver and precious metals go.
And that’s where I come in.
