The Israel Deception

Is the return of Israel in the 20th century truly a work of God, or is it a result of a cosmic chess move to deceive the elect by the adversary?

Marc Faber: QE-4-EVA is here to stay

Three days after President Obama fired up the debt machine to borrow $300 billion America cannot afford, economist Mark Faber sat in on CNBC’s Squawkbox to provide an assessment of the economy, and the future asset bubble the U.S. will become in the aftermath of Congress’s vote for unlimited debt ceiling.  In his interview on Oct. 21, Faber announced that the Fed has cornered itself into a position where it has no possible exit strategy, and that QE-4-EVA is here to stay.

No Taper: Fed to continue to print money with no exit strategy available

On Sept. 18, the most anticipated decision in several years from the Federal Reserve took place, sealing the fate of the American dollar and the economy as a whole.  In an 11 minute speech, Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke reported that the central bank would not taper their bond buying program as many on Wall Street anticipated, and instead will continue the $85 billion in money printing that has lasted for more than a year.

Fed to use accounting tricks to hold down interest rates when QE ends

As the market nears the September threshold for when Quantitative Easing (QE) might be tapered off, the Federal Reserve is left in a dilemma on how they can keep interest rates down as they begin to rise after years of money printing.  In a new report coming out of the recent FOMC minutes, Fed members were briefed on a controversial scheme known as reverse repo as a potential way to liquidate excess money, and keep interest rates down.

Americans are simply lab rats in the great Fed experiment

On Sept. 20, well known and well respected economist Jim Grant spoke in an interview on the ramifications of the Fed's new QE4evr policy.  In his assessment, Americans, as well as our economy, are simply lab rats in a great experiement by the Fed, to try to learn how things work, and in particular, how their Keynsian money printing actions effect everything.




...so too does Grant believe that the Fed is "learning by doing" and follows up by clarifying that this is an experiment, "and we are lab rats in the financial markets." He then proceeds to lament that the credit markets, clueless NYT econopundits notwithstanding, have now lost all informational value as every rate instrument is purely in the manipulated domain of the Fed.

Even after Bernanke says no easing the Fed can't stay away from printing press

Last week, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said he did not see the need at this time to continue any real form of quantitative easing, as inflation was signalling a sharp rise in prices.  The markets reacted accordingly, and dumped both equities and commodities, and the dollar quickly gained strength across the board.

However, a Keynesian is a Keynsian no matter how much they try to stick to a 12-step program, and just as quickly as the central banker said no to QE infinity, a spokesperson for the institution came out today and said that QE could still be in play, only in a more steralized form.

Steralized form?  Should we now refer to Ben Bernanke as Dr. Evil, MD?


While we have yet to see the actual report, almost certainly emanating from Jon Hilsenrath, it appears that the QE3 rumormill has started, initially with speculation that the Fed's activity will be merely "sterilized" or more Twist-type purchases, unclear however if in TSYs or also in MBS. Via the WSJ:
  • Fed Officials consider "sterilized" option for Future bond buying
  • Operation Twist Reprise, QE Other Options For Fed Bond
  • Still Unclear Whether Fed Will Launch Another Bond-Buy - Wall Street Journal via Zerohedge

Of course, the markets reacted postitvely to the thought of more booze to keep the party going, and any economist with half a brain can see that Dow 13000... heck DOW 10000+ has simply been tied to trillions pumped into the monetary system by the Bernank bartender.

If the markets cannot stand on their own for even a WEEK without Fed stimulus, then the hopium dream that America is in recovery is better left to those ignorant fools who desire the Blue Pill.
