Everyone, it seems, wants to blame high gas prices on anything other than the Federal Reserve. All of main stream media is decrying high gas prices and having long discussions about the cause of price spikes without ever even MENTIONING Federal Reserve monetary policy.
They, the politicians and media, want to blame "speculators" / "traders" for high commodity prices. What they ALWAYS fail to mention at all is what those higher cost evaluations are BASED on! And that is Federal Reserve monetary policy.
You had BETTER learn to think and learn for yourself because the politicians and the media only tell you what they WANT you to hear! What they WANT you to think you know.
I promise you it is misdirection!
The Federal Reserve CONTROLS the cost of commodities via their manipulation of our currency. When the FED devalues the dollar the cost of all commodities go up.
When / if consumer spending is weak (a perceived threat to "economic growth") the FED can FORCE higher consumer spending against our will any time they choose by intentionally creating inflation.
The very same technique they have used over the last 100 years to deflate the value of our currency from $1.00 = $1.00 in 1913 to the point where now that same $1.00, by comparison, is worth 0.04!
How can politicians and the lame stream media possibly miss this connection between monetary policy at the FED and higher commodity prices?
They can't miss it! They merely ignore it, say NOTHING about it! They all KNOW that an important part of their (matrix) job is to HIDE certain facts! Not reveal them.
How can you make money in the fraudulent manipulated gulag casino markets (run entirely by the FED, Primary Dealers and your friendly Too Big To Fail Banks) when the dollars you invest are being constantly DEVALUED?!
Here's what Mr Bernanke himself had to say!
…the US government has a technology, called a printing press (or, today, its electronic equivalent), that allows it to produce as many US dollars as it wishes at essentially no cost. By increasing the number of US dollars in circulation, or even by credibly threatening to do so, the "US government can also reduce the value of a dollar in terms of goods and services, which is equivalent to raising the prices in dollars of those goods and services". We conclude that, under a paper-money system, "a determined government can always generate higher spending and hence positive inflation".
He seems so proud of his unchecked ability to destroy the value of our currency any time he chooses to do so..
To manipulate the costs of the things Americans MUST have, food and energy, at will.
To misdirect attention from what the man behind the curtain is doing.. Pulling and pushing the levers and buttons that effect all of our lives on a daily basis with true scrutiny and over sight by NO ONE!
The FED. Always in the shadows, always PROTECTED by the political class as they work their economic black magic to control the U.S. debt based, fiat driven, ponzi economy and protect a greedy corrupt status quo system filled with thieves which must have ever soaring quantities of YOUR fiat merely to SURVIVE!
It will never end until it ends for good..
I support Ron Paul for POTUS BECAUSE he understands all this.. I would strongly urge you to look past Ron Paul's rather large ears and into his heart and mind. Look at what he says needs to be done because virtually all of it is true.
