    There are two tweets from the Boston Globe stating that there were controlled bomb drills going on. As Boston bombing happened. Every terrorist attack 9/11, 7/7 in London, and bombings in Madrid. All had mock bombing exercises going on as terrorist event was happening. Something is not right here.

          According to FB, if a page does not have 200+ likes, the ”name” can be changed. Supposedly, the FB page in question WAS a Mr T tribute page.

    Reasons for a Revolution

    Come The Revolution? The Revolution should have come a long time ago. Instead the people focus their attention who is a republican and who is a democrat. Obama did this. So & so said this. Sequesters, debt ceilings, Bush. All distractions for the average joes to write on their social media sites and blogs. Yes, spread the Two-party Oligarchy bullshit. So, the averages joes can get mad at MSNBC and Fox news. Rabble Rabble Rabble. I’m a ”progressive” so I love Obama. I’m a ”conservative” so I love Bush. Hey Average Joe’s who’s taking your money? Where are your jobs going? How come Congress gets a raise and you don’t? Who destroyed your economy? Who is to blame? The republicans? The democrats? Blame yourselves for supporting and believing in the Two-Party Oligarchy system. Blame yourselves for continuing to vote for republican and democrat.

    If Andrew Jackson were alive today, there would already be an army heading for the Federal Reserve and Washington DC.

    Let’s build structure, we can stop the oligarchy together, we can stop the banking cabal together. Distractions are their weapon. Let’s break out and care for one another. In the end people are more important than the banksters profits and their control of the poor working labor force. We must chop off the heads of the snakes. http://antishock.opesr.net/ http://opesr.net/ http://min.us/lIUyOklNKzr1t

    Has the Recovery Stalled?

    In Bernanke We Trust?

    Posted by Zachary Karabell Thursday, April 28, 2011 at 1:00 am
    11 Comments • Related Topics: economy federal reserve
    Yesterday, Ben Bernanke departed from the silent, opaque tradition of the Federal Reserve and held a press conference. The event attracted considerable attention, for its novelty as much as for its substance. But those hoping that Bernanke would do his best imitation of Willy Wonka and reveal hidden facets of humor, complexity and charisma were, to say the least, disappointed.
    What was striking wasn’t what was said: it was the theater of saying it. The build-up demonstrated what most have long suspected: the Federal Reserve has become the fourth branch of government, with few of the resources of the other three but with as much influence on the warp and woof of society. The Chairman of the Federal Reserve – in his signaling, his cryptic utterances and Delphic statements – now has arguably more sway on American life than the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.
    It’s not that anyone truly expected Bernanke to say anything of substance. After all, the risk-reward for him skews almost entirely to the risk side of the equation. Say something unwise and unexpected and the markets – susceptible as they are to uncertainty and more sensitive to change than the princess and her pea – could be roiled. Say something wise and unexpected, and there is no news and no reaction. So Bernanke did what central bankers do: say very little at great length and with great variety.

    Or to be precise, he reiterated what the Federal Reserve Open Market Committee has been saying for months: the economy is recovering but is still hobbled by high unemployment; inflation is increasing because of food and fuel but in general remains in check; and low-interest rates and continued use of creative tools such as Fed purchases of U.S. treasuries remain necessary to keep the economy moving forward. Bernanke also disagreed that the Fed and the Treasury are pursuing a purposeful policy of keeping the dollar weak in order to bolster American exports (which is what the Chinese have been accusing the United States of doing), and he warned of long-term deterioration of the U.S. financial position if the government doesn’t do something to get deficits and spending under control.
    Perhaps the most compelling message was on employment. Two questioners probed what the Fed can do to reduce unemployment. Bernanke’s most telling sound bite? “We don’t have any tools for targeting long-term unemployment specifically. We can try to make the labor market work better broadly speaking.” Several Fed governors have been on record urging Congress to remove the Fed’s odd dual mandate (unlike many other central banks) to strive not just for price stability (a.k.a keeping inflation and deflation at bay) but also to work for full employment. The problem is that while the Fed has immense influence over financial systems and markets, unless it starts hiring lots of people, there is little is can do beyond creating the purported conditions for employment.
    As for the markets, the reaction to Ben was mostly benign. Stocks – which have been on a roll of late – reacted positively the news that there was no imminent risk that the Fed would stop injecting money into the economy. Excess money – liquidity – is the mother’s milk of equities, and a generally weaker dollar is a recipe for continued high prices of oil, food and metals that trade in dollars internationally. Traders have been doing well trading global stocks and commodities, and Bernanke remarks were taken as a signal that this trade is still on. With bond yields zero (or less taking inflation into account) and Bernanke assuring markets that liquidity would remain ample, stocks should continue their upward trends – until, of course, they don’t.
    The trick for the Fed now is to keep everyone calm but not complacent, and to signal that one day soon but not too soon policies will change and the Fed will be less involved in supporting the markets. When you teach a kid to ride a bike, you have to let go of the bike without saying anything and hope that the child keeps riding before they freak out and realize you’ve let go. That’s what Bernanke has to do with the markets, and it’s not an enviable task.
    With his blank delivery and academic patois, Bernanke fits the mold of oracular banker perfected by his revered and reviled predecessor Alan Greenspan. The markets have come to hinge on the words, signals and actions of the Fed, and as go those markets so go the collective material fortunes of us all. But the desire to imbue the Fed with that power – and the willingness of those like Bernanke to accept it – has risks. Central bankers are not neutral pullers of levers: they are human, and they make mistakes ranging from hubris to miscalculation. They may save us one month and crush us the next. Today, the markets cheered. But the downside is that tomorrow, they may jeer, or worse, fear. And this fourth estate, unelected and powerful, is unprepared for those storms.

    Quoted for truth: “We don’t have any tools for targeting long-term unemployment specifically. We can try to make the labor market work better broadly speaking.”
    Hopefully, this will soon become acknowledged and we’ll stop asking the Fed why we don’t have full employment.

    More important than any impact that the Federal Reserve might have on the economy of the United States is the impact of the country’s $14.3 trillion debt. With deficits in the $1.5 trillion range year after year, the country is at some point going to face a debt crisis that the Fed will not be able to control.
    Here is an article showing the time frame for a potential default on United States federal debt and what could trigger a debt crisis:

    There is no such think as the National Debt!! It is the National Monetarization account. Read the dictationary. A debt has to be paid back which we have not done in over 165 years.
    Do you think we will every have enough increases in taxes and decreases in spending to create a surplus to pay off the so-called National Debt??
    This is one way to get money into the system. I do not think it is a correct way but you can go to http://www.progressive-economics.com and http://www.monetary.org to research the correct solutions.

    The privately-owned British monetary and banking system was the model used by the United State when establishing the Federal Reserve banking system, as it is in most of the western world. This monetary and banking system is one of the greatest causes of systemic poverty in the world.
    When a nation’s money is created by a privately-owned, for-profit banking cartel as the principal of loans, the interest payments on the loans transfer the value of real world goods and services to the abstract world of money that only represents their value, robbing working people who created the real wealth of the world of the value of their creations. In the United States the money supply is about $55.8 trillion with an annual interest payment of $3.56 trillion. In fewer than sixteen years, the entire money supply will be paid to the banks as interest on their loans.
    The national debt is a discretionary welfare scheme greatly benefitting banker and bond traders for totally nonproductive activity. In the twenty years between 1991 and 2010, the government has increased the national debt by $9.9 Trillion, with most of the borrowing coming in the last three years, while paying $7.5 trillion in interest, the interest accounting for more than 75% of the increase in the debt.
    Only sovereign governments can issue debt-free, stable currencies that are necessary for sustainable economies.

    Atlas Shrugged. Here we come? Or should I say there we run just as fast as we can. We’ve gone from slowly digressing into a 3rd world economy to mainlining steroids, in less than one presidential term, in order to cross the finish line of mass self-destruction a little bit faster.
    All we need to do is look to our Southern border and we will get a glimpse of what lies ahead for this once very proud United States of America. There will be no more middle class. You’re rich or you’re poor.
    The poor will be the servants of the rich. The rich will own vast and multiple estates by which to enjoy and indulge in all the idyllic climatic zones and what’s left of our once vital resources and attractions.
    They will pay no taxes because all their businesses will be outsourced to China and India and their vast fortunes and holdings held in offshore accounts in Switzerland, the Cayman Islands and probably even Cuba before too long.
    Our infrastructure will slowly crumble, freeways will deteriorate, cities and neighborhoods that don’t serve the best interests of the super rich will deteriorate as has Mexico’s and other 3rd world countries.
    But the wealthy won’t mind because they’ll have their helicopters on their private estates make the commute to the landing strip where their private jets await to whisk them away to the many exotic international treasures and retreats that wet their privileged palettes on any given day.
    Am I that wealthy? Of course not. Am I one of the poor? Not yet. But I can tell you that you can only swim against a raging current for so long before you slowly start to lose ground and get swept down river and swallowed by the raging rapids.
    Personally and thankfully I’ve probably got enough to last out my lifetime quite comfortably and at 65 as a productive and upwardly mobile real estate broker, developer and general contractor I don’t think I’ll be swept down that river in my lifetime. God willing.
    But my negative rant isn’t about me or my lovely wife of almost 4 decades. I’ve had a very successful life and still am for that matter.
    It’s my children, grandchildren and beyond. They’re the ones that will have to figure out how to survive those raging waters and most of them don’t even know it yet.
    But when they’re trying to figure out how to keep us on life support while they can’t even afford to own a home or send their kids to college the rubber will finally meet the road with a vengeance.
    Corruption, crime and violence in the streets will rise to levels of which we’ve never seen because there will be no control at the borders and everyone and anyone will be able to enter and leave at will.
    Crime bosses, drug cartels and even terrorist organizations will spill across our borders and start buying and bribing their way into power and intimidating or killing anyone who gets in their way from their next door neighbors to the mayors and law enforcement leaders of every community in America.
    All while our American Boys and Girls are dying and/or coming home in wheel chairs or with missing limbs from fighting in three wars, one of which we currently have 150,000 troupes defending a country who hates America and would love to kill us, from a few hundred bearded renegade fanatics.
    Add to that Libya whose oil we don’t even buy. It goes to China! Our biggest enemy. This is mass hysteria to the likes of which we’ve never seen. Our soldiers belong on our borders fighting criminals and terrorists who are trying to kill us on our own soil.
    What the BIG FOUR that are so pathetically running our country are not sharing with American Citizens is that just between social security and medicare we’re looking at about 43 trillion dollars [http://markdotzour.com/] in money we don’t have just to take care of 77 million baby boomers in the next 25 years.
    And these are only two of our thousands of entitlements that we’ve been promised and have come to expect, soon to demand and then finally begin to riot in the streets for whence finally Americans wake up and realize that the well ran dry..
    We’ve dumbed down our national education system thereby creating one of the biggest shortfalls of adequately educated Americans since the pilgrims landed in 1620. In fact I’d be willing to bet that if we took a national poll today of high school students most wouldn’t even be able to associate Plymouth Rock to the Mayflower let alone be able to tell us where either of them are located.
    I’ve been an Independent since Reagan (Republican) left office. I idolized John F Kennedy (democrat) for having the vision and wherewithal to stem off WWIII during the Cuban Missle Crises by launching a synergetic movement that put our first man on the Moon and put millions of people to work.
    I voted for Reagan because he had the insight and intestinal fortitude to bring America out of the brink of international bankruptcy and diplomatic embarrassment and turn us once again into the most powerful Nation on the planet.
    I couldn’t stand either Bush; Two of the most pompous megalomaniacs ever bestowed to the power of the presidency. So I waste my vote on Perot and acquiesced to GW so I wouldn’t make the mistake of wasting my vote again.
    In retrospect Clinton has probably done the best job as a national leader as anyone has since Reagan and it was actually the carry over and momentum of Reagonomics that brought him most of his success. It certainly wasn’t his benevolent wife.
    Now here we go again. Except this is the biggest power grab if not outright overthrow of our government in our history. America has been hijacked right before our very eyes.
    .
    The OBAMANATION…….Never has a name been a better fit. When not on a golf course or a basketball court he’s found kissing the pinky rings of our enemies whence globetrotting the seven continents on American Citizens Air Force I. (Funny how he didn’t make the Queens Cut this weekend though. Perhaps she’s gotten the message and wants to distance herself as much as possible).
    And now the biggest act of all in this three ring circus. TRUMP!!!!!. what a pathetic joke and a waste of valuable time, money and effort not to mention an abrupt diversion of all that was left of sanity. We need to THUMP the TRUMP and get on to the things that really matter.
    What’s the fix? For openers we could consider doing what just about every other country that we’ve doled out American Citizens tax dollars to for decades. Don’t pay.
    That’s right. Mexico and Brazil for openers have both defaulted on loans we made to them over and over again. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. We’ve given away quadrillions of dollars to countries who have, do and will continue to hate and resent us.
    So why not a little payback? Why not just do what so many countries have done to America for so long? Thumb our noses to the world that way they have to America. Just go Chapter 11 to the world, wipe the slate clean and start over?
    Here’s why. Because we have developed such an incestuous relationship with world economies with all the power and wealth mongers in America that the whole house of cards would come tumbling down on a global level and we’d be plunged into a world depression to the likes of which the world has never seen.
    Add to that the fact that we are Americans and most of us have always believed in paying our bills. Not running from them.
    But truth be known, America is the little Dutch Boy with his thumb in the Dyke trying to keep the dam from bursting. Well, that dam will burst. It’s just a matter of when and when it finally does how badly it will flood the lands.
    They say ”In Times of Crisis Great Leaders Emerge”. Well folks…….Disneyland is over. Where is that leader? Because right here, right now IS THAT CRISIS.
    Thank GOD I still have the right to rant.

    johnarendson has just written a fairly good out line for a rather fascinating novel not unlike Atlas Shrugged.
    I am planning on retiring this summer. I am hoping my small nest egg lasts long enough I don’t have to steal the dogs food but I agree we in the long term are in for some serious changes in the land and I hope they are mature finally and not the corporate lobbying greedy routine we have had for number of years. I hope we have a real plan to balance the budget and feel proud or secure of our life and country. I agree we need a real hero but he/she wont be allowed to surface under the present system.

    That is why the Fed Chairman is called the most powerful man in the world. He determines who will be President.
    Bush 1 would have had a second term if the Fed had stumulated 3 months earlier. Recall that the economy in ’92 was recovering at the time of the election. The numbers came out just after the election. Three month’s earlier and history would have been very different.

    gamesmith94134: In Bernanke We Trust
    Several Fed governors have been on record urging Congress to remove the Fed’s odd dual mandate to strive for price stability and full employment; now, Bernanke claim he has no tool for employment. So, we must believe him; why should you trust him to compromise on the full employment if it was not his duty? Or to stop inflation in time after he is free from QEII before it is too late?
    At present, the gas is eating off the pockets of the American consumers; and he has no control of it even if he raises the rates to par speculation. Perhaps, within the coming months, he may pack up the real estate equities off the banks, and sell them in bulks to foreigners or investors since neither the first time buyer nor the second time buyer can surpass the credit crunch. The matter of the fact, our present economical problems may not be resolved in just liquidity; it was the cash flow that came through US and roll out of it, and we have no control of it. Gold rallied violently to $1520; after the suggestion on gold standard by World Bank and dollars once again depreciated. It was the investment funds that altered everything. We must look into the exchange rates that cause the swinging motion that going in and out among nations. I suppose there must be a mechanism that must alert the imbalance of the exchange rates within the markets; and amend the short term investment that created risks in both commodities and stocks markets.
    “between the end of 1991 when our imports and exports were last in balance, and February of 2002 when the dollar’s overvaluation peaked, our currency’s value rose by over 50%. Massive inflows of foreign capital seeking high returns and safe haven in the US capital markets were a major factor behind the rise to such totally unsustainable levels.”It may come of the rise of the Yens that displacement of the exchange rate from 3oo yen to 120 yen to a dollar, and we double spent it from the excessive off the swap just like the ICE in reverse. Did the World Bank and IMF being throw off to the chopping block by its voting right or the SDR that put Japan idle for ten year on the wheels spinning? Where are the axles? Or, may I say “Eurodollar”?
    I think there should be a mechanism that the zones must be set that all central bank must make reserves on the exchanges to trade or bonds and equity to eliminate errors that traders can abuse the market that the short term investment fallouts made the system collapsible. I am sorry if our FED does not have tools for a long term strategy; but the World Bank or IMF can merge with the continents that the all trade groups must apply. Now, the ECB is question how the ICE work, or how it come through the scrutiny of the World Bank and IMF who must protect the global economy and development? Why not come to OCED, OAS, OSEAN, AU, Eastern Block or America to monitor the trade process and exchange and distant yourselves from afar? Only Zoning can protect the regional integrity from the future looting by the stronger exchange rate and required reserves or equities on the exchange can guarantee a fair trade. It is not free trade that can loot with the stronger currencies; and fair trade that harmonize all regional exchanges by the essence of integrity.
    May the Buddha bless you?

    @dronestream this person is covering every drone strike that has happened. Good info. On a serious note. If we do not stop the domestic use of drones. Kiss your freedoms goodbye forever. Terminator style. They use sheriffs to throw people in the streets. Wait till they use drones

    Bank of America (and their lackeys)

    firefox-gray We have anchored at U.S. shores again to accept a consignment of a data package that probably belongs to our dear friends at Bank of America, though lots of contractors and subsidiaries (aka lackeys) are involved as usual.

    It is a known fact that Bank of America is paying contractors to discredit journalist and sabotage their work as well as spying on the Occupy Movement and Anonymous ever since. It was to be expected that these efforts continue and it was also expected that their security remains – at best – lousy.

    To start with, we present you about 320mb of internal reports and and emails assembled for Bank of America by a sub-contractor named TEKSystems (who in turn are a subsidiary of the Allegio Group whose founder also owns the Baltimore Ravens). These reports and emails assembled ”intelligence” from sources like public channels on Anonymous and other IRC networks like Anonops, Voxanon and Cryto, as well as other social media.

    We were geniously amused by the fact that there are actually paid analysts sitting somewhere, reading the vast amount garbage that scrolls by in large public channels like #anonops and #voxanon. Even more amusing is the keyword list that was found, containing trigger words like ”Jihad” or ”Homosexual”.

    Additionally about 12 Gigabyte of source code was looted, which is currently under assessment. We can tell so far that this software belongs to ClearForest, a company specializing on text and social network analysis. It is reasonable to assume that this code is the base system for what was used to categorize and store the acquired information. We will add the complete source code once we have finshied the initial assessment.

    In the meantime, amuse yourself with the incredibly sensitive and important intelligence that BofA has gathered on Anonops and Voxanon (*smirk*). Please also note that the source has provided an accompanying release statement with the data.

      In researching the newest Pentagon and Military Industrial Complex (defense contractor) phenomenon, I have found Twitter to be an unexpectedly valuable source, for everything there is to learn about #drones. The Los Angeles Times has culled together a great news (stories) starting point.
      Thanks, @GaryWebb1972, for all!

    Here is the summary for the Federal Reserve/Ben Bernanke FOIA project http://www.mediafire.com/view/?dxuldm87zjo461i There is more emerging evidence coming out that the Treasury knew about the million dollar bonuses to AIG and others. >>>>http://www.washingtonpost.com/business/economy/treasury-approved-big-pay-raises-at-bailed-out-aig-ally-and-gm-report-says/2013/01/28/1e0fe84c-695f-11e2-ada3-d86a4806d5ee_story.html<<<<<

    Hopefully more people can join in on this project and start doing FOIA requests to open up information on Bernanke, the Fed and others. Unfortunately one of my appeals was denied and exemptions upheld. Look at it here http://www.mediafire.com/view/?zv5jm0dd54hpxq4

    I know some people that I am going to have this a look over. To see if anything can be done. Let me know if any of you guys know anyone with FOIA experience or law etc.

    In reply to - @garywebb1972 posted an update: @ritaj This batch contains talk on AIG bailouts, Economic Stress tests, and Feds CFR speech. Also, shows how these people operate and communicate.
