U.S. Prepares To Detonate Market Bubbles

The Machiavellian mainstream media was at it again today. The Game has become so old now that it has become stale and repetitive. The media prints their phony reassurances about one aspect or another of our Crime Syndicate economies, and we know the actual truth is virtually opposite.

They write that the U.S. economy is in a “strengthening recovery”, and we know it’s in a worsening Depression. The Corporate Media claims that inflation is “too low”, meanwhile in the Real World a “food-inflation crisis” threatens the well-being of billions.

The propaganda machine spouts (again and again) that gold is now “in a bear market”, and in the Real World we see demand spiking to all-time highs, as the bull market reaches a new, fevered pitch.  The mainstream media assures us that there is nothing to worry about at LME metals warehouses other than a few “shipping irregularities”, and we discover that crooked Banksters are up-their-eyeballs in gangster racketeering.

In a recent commentary, it was noted that the Corporate Media was claiming that the Canadian government was now diligently endeavouring to “cool the housing market.” As was then explained; not only had Stephen Harper’s government systematically, deliberately duplicated the catastrophic U.S. housing bubble, but now his government had just slammed that bubble with a financial sledge-hammer.

Clearly, one of the primary functions of the mainstream media today is nothing more than an absurd, endless reprise of the role of Officer Barbrady from “South Park”:

Move along people. There’s nothing to see here…

And as with the ‘reliable’ Officer Barbrady; every time we see the Corporate Media come up with a new version of this inane message, we know that we need to pay especially close attention. So what is “Officer Barbrady” telling us not to worry about today? U.S. bubbles – because Barack Obama (and the Federal Reserve) are vigilantly standing guard against such a possibility.

What is happening in the Real World? The Demolition Squad is being assembled, because it’s “bubble-blowing time” again.

Déjà vu. The year was 2007. The same Corporate Media had just assured us (yet again) that according to the same Fed Chairman, the U.S. had a “Goldilocks economy”, where U.S. markets and house prices would just keep going up, and up, and up forever.

B.S. Bernanke himself was vigilantly standing guard to make sure nothing derailed that Goldilocks economy. Of course by that time the U.S. housing bubble had already burst, and within months the wheels had fallen off the economy as a whole.

Flash ahead to 2013, and the U.S.S. Titanic has a new Skipper (Barack Obama), but the same First Mate (Bernanke) – again (supposedly) constantly on the look-out for icebergs. Is there any reason for this Plucky Crew to be worried?

How about $1 trillion per year of totally gratuitous money-printing (i.e. “QE”), which has produced the now-familiar chart below? Does anything about this chart suggest “bubble”?

Of course most of that $1 trillion finds its way directly into the pockets of the psychopath gamblers employed by the One Bank. While they do most of their gambling in their own, crooked, unregulated Private Casino (the so-called “derivatives market”), some of that gambling inevitably sloshes over into other markets.

We now have U.S. equity markets at all-time bubble-highs, in an economy which has spent 4 ½ years “Recovering”, yet (strangely) can never manage to recover. U.S. corporations have issued $241 billion in “junk bonds” so far this year alone (gambling chips for the Psychopaths) – more than double the amount issued in the same period in 2007. And the amount of “margin” (i.e. leverage) in these same markets is near a record (i.e. bubble) high.

Then there is the permanent 0% interest rate in the U.S. economy: free money for the minions of the One Bank (and only the One Bank), rocket fuel for asset bubbles. It’s an economic policy so reckless that it has only been attempted by one other government in all of history – Japan – and we’ve all seen how well that has worked out.

Meanwhile, we have U.S. cities beginning to declare bankruptcy (Detroit is the largest/latest), and the entire U.S. pension system teeters on collapse. Not a good time to go around creating (and now blowing-up) bubbles. That’s why we have Bloomberg working very diligently to write Barack Obama’s alibi. There is not a moment of doubt as to Bloomberg’s agenda from Line #1 of this script:

President Barack Obama, who took office amid the collapse of the last financial bubble, wants to make sure his economic recovery doesn’t generate the next one.

However, having dulled the minds of the Sheep with years and years of its own brain-killing propaganda; the Bloomberg writer wants to make sure the Sheep don’t fail to comprehend the Alibi, and so it’s repeated again and again – starting in Line #2:

Obama this month spoke four times in five days of the need to avoid what he called “artificial bubbles”…

And just to make sure that Message reaches any Sheep who still didn’t “get it”; it’s reiterated (in different form) five more times. When the post-bubble “crime scene” is examined; no one will be able to find Barack Obama’s fingerprints anywhere…just those of his Patsy: B.S. Bernanke.

Having diligently gone about creating yet more bubbles-that-don’t-exist; someone has to be the Demolition Squad’s “trigger man” in blowing up the bubbles which the U.S. government assures us aren’t there. Enter First Mate Bernanke, and his “tapering.”

In laughing off this 6-month propaganda campaign as far back as March, my reasoning was simple: Bernanke wouldn’t dare (finally) follow through on an Exit Strategy (after 4 ½ years of promising to do so), because the U.S. bubble-economy would immediately go “pop”.

But what if Bernanke’ Masters at the One Bank now want U.S. markets to go “pop”? There is not a lot of money-making potential left in these scam-markets when they are already sitting at record-highs. The One Bank needs a “reset”; so it’s time to make money on the way down.

The Script is the same one it has been using with impunity for well over a century:

1) Create asset-bubbles, and ride them up as far as they will go.

2) Position itself for a “crash” by placing all its own (bearish) bets ahead of anyone else, because all its servants in the Corporate Media are still “pumping” the markets for all they are worth – or doing their Officer Barbrady routine.

3) Command one of its Henchmen to detonate the bubble(s); usually a Central Banker.

4) Cash in…and then repeat Step #1.

This particular version of the Script is excruciatingly obvious, having been dumbed-down for the propaganda-numbed minds of 21st century Sheep.

Not only have we been subjected to six months of Patsy/Trigger-Man Bernanke announcing (and re-announcing, and re-announcing) his “tapering”; but for nearly that long Barack “I didn’t do it” Obama has been publicly speculating about the Patsy’s successor.

How long will it take Skipper Obama to blame First Mate Bernanke (aka “Gilligan”) when the U.S.S. Titanic “surprises” the world by hitting another iceberg? About as long as it takes for Obama to say “I didn’t do it.”

Of course one thing has changed as the One Bank goes through the motions of the 21st century version of its pump-and-crash Game. Today all of the One Bank’s Big Bank subsidiaries are all officially “Too Big To Fail.”

In other words, not only do we have to endure the hardship/chaos of the One Bank blowing up our markets (and economies) yet again, but (according to our own Traitor Governments) we’re now obligated to pay them for performing this “service” – in the form of paying-off any all of their “bad debts” (i.e. bad bets) which they present to us for reimbursement.

Thanks to the actions (inaction) of our own governments, we’re not only held hostage while the One Bank subjects us to its economic rape (over and over); we pay the Rapists for raping us.

To be more precise; it’s those people who (foolishly) choose to leave most/all of their wealth in paper form who will pay the Rapists. Having already picked-clean all of the Treasuries of our Traitor Governments; “bail-outs” are out and “bail-ins” are in. The targeted theft of (paper) assets – any paper assets -- from any Sheep foolish enough to leave their wealth within the One Bank’s grasp.

This was why the One Bank found it necessary for a preemptive crashing of bullion markets, to drive wealth out of our only “safe haven”, and herd all of that wealth into their fraudulent, pumped-up paper markets – just in time for the next Shearing of the Sheep.

The old colloquialism “crash and burn” is now about to give way to an updated, 21st century version: crash-and-steal.

This one is so obvious as to be laughable.
Crash the market via a threat of "tapering" (early September Fed meeting), launch the new $100 bill on October 8th, declare old 100's no longer legal tender, forcing everyone to exchange them (and pay tax on their cash stash).
Take credit for flushing out "drug money", and announce a mandatory level of "safe" government bonds for everyones IRA & 401K, because of the obvious volatility of the freshly crashed market. This too will be for the safety of the "hard working folks".
Impose capital controls to "prevent tax cheating" by outlawing offshore accounts & severly restricting the movement of money out of the country.
Stage another false flag operation to show the necessity of the NSA, Homeland Security army, drones, millions of cameras, and closed borders.
Thus, having secured financing & total control, the true police state will be upon us.



Yes Bobbny, it seems these days that the Fascists are putting so much of their energies into committing their evil schemes that there is little desire/energy left over to even attempt to cover-up what they are doing.

Or perhaps they have simply become so contemptuous toward the Little People that they no longer CARE what we know or think...???

The dollar (Mother of all) bubble(s) is all over the world. Since non-US investors are dumping US treasuries, the debt bubble will burst very soon.


Touche Dgierl!

Indeed, the dollar-bubble and the Treasuries-bubble are BOTH larger than any other U.S. bubbles which have been "popped" (i.e. blown up) to this point in the Game. I suppose what I should have added (which would have gotten us closer to the "same page"), is that I'm not expecting either of those two bubbles to go KABOOM...yet.

As we know, those will be the Last Bubbles to go; and my own belief is that there is at least not the INTENT to bring down the whole House of Cards at this time -- only a few of the Lesser Bubbles. Of course with the foundation of this House of Cards now somewhat less trustworthy than quicksand (lol), we could always see an accident. smilies/wink.gif

I really enjoyed the South Park episode (years ago) when Canada declared war on the US. smilies/wink.gif

It sure does look like the mother of all bubbles may be popped this autumn. Everything I read from Zero Hedge of late points to it. "Move along people. There’s nothing to see here", and the sheeple move along.

I didn't know South Park was popular up there in the "Great White North". I guess it stands to reason as Ike is from there.



Dgierl, I'm not sure that the current U.S. bubbles are as LARGE as the last ones -- simply because this crippled economy is too anemic to be pumped-up again to such an extreme (this soon). However, for those same reasons the current bubble is AT LEAST as unstable -- if not more so.

"South Park"? I can't speak for other Canadians, but some of the satire is so delightfully twisted that my Contrarian mind finds it irresistable...I just wish they could have avoided a lot of the "toilet humor"(?). smilies/cheesy.gif
