Inflation Wins As Tunisian President Ben Ali Flees Country

Tyler Durden's picture





 

It was just 10 days ago (before anyone had even heard of food inflation) that Zero Hedge first predicted food riots were just around the corner (before anyone had even heard of Tunisia). Little did we know how quickly things would escalate out of control. Here is one man who is 100% confident he can leave the country before protests over runaway inflation succeed in getting him to face his (very hungry) population (presumably in close proximity to a decapitation device). This is probably the first confirmed case of a corrupt government overthrown as a result of the daily POMO secret CIA weapon. Certainly not the last. Stocks up on the news that some rating agency has downgraded the country to BBB+ (much higher than Greece) due to revolution. POMO: liberating countries from oppressive governments through excess inflationary liquidity since 2011

As reported by Al Jazeera reporter Alan Fisher.

Yes, it is all so brutal, Ben Bernanke in charge of it, this evil of genocidal proportions.

A few months ago, I was reading articles on Zero Hedge, suggesting how the US policies would shortly - and partly intentionally - lead to spiking food prices, riots across the developing world, deaths, and governments tottering.
 
It is unfolding now, quite as the ZH articles anticipated.
 
Now, a good economic understanding, directly points not only to tragedy but to the clear evidence of great evil.
 
It quite weighs upon me, seeing it all happen, and feeling the strangeness that the real issues are not adequately in public debate, while people die and so many millions are hurting, from things that could in fact be fixed, if some governments were not so evil.
 
So many people don't know ... these things like food price rises, are actually well-understood by some economists and governments.
 
It is only in small part a question of food supply and harvests. It is much more a question of manipulation of money and credit supply ... of which the US government is the principal actor.
 
It seems the US quite knew - and intended - that the 'quantitative easing', added to other manipulative factors, would result in food prices going higher and millions facing hardship.
 
To make matters worse on purpose, the US even has absurd laws requiring that US corn production, be diverted to help produce a cheap-grade petrol for vehicles ... thus taking needed food off the market, and boosting food prices by choking supply.
 
They have several goals, aside from the constant one of bailing out big banks. One is just to make the dollars worth less to benefit US trade. Another is so the oligarch speculators can profit from the food trading price rises.
 
But beyond that, they want on purpose to make people hungry, for specific reasons. A big objective is to force China and perhaps some other countries, to raise their currencies in value ... China has been refusing to do this, and the US thinks that this devious leverage upon several hundred million poor Chinese, will force the Chinese gov't to do what the US wants, to avoid riots in China.
 
And then the US generally wants instability in governments, like Tunisia's President departing, as these things, tend to be profitable and favourable for money inflows into the US debt they want to sell ... and also favour the US military expansion and objectives.
 
And it is shocking to me when I think that, if this kind of thing is clearly outlined on one of the leading web sites read by investors - ZH at millions of hits a month - it must also be clear to the economists at the UN, IMF, World Bank etc ... who generally must understand as well, how it is that the US printing money and inflating the currency - which is what food is priced in, on international markets - how this leads to price rises in food for the world's poor.
 
The price rises are not a 'mysterious' process ... when the US gov't is inflating, plus developing world governments are also printing money and inflating on top of that ... it is clear what the result is, for the prices of necessities for common people.
 
Yet people do not know who is making them hungry, and how.

Wishful small-town unthinking! Tunisia's Ben Ali is the CIA's and uncle sam's favorite dictator in north africa. American and its 52nd state's interests will be severely harmed if Mubarak or the house of saud goes. I think America will probably go into civil war before Indonesia India and China go. And in case you had been to Mars, Indonesia had their dictator kicked out in 1998. India is not ruled by a dictatorship, nor is Indonesia ruled by an american-style oligarchy! India actually has a free press and the first central bank to tighten this time round.

Doesn’t the Bernanke talk constantly about TARGETING inflation?  Surely with the new rules being put forth by Congress about labeling those who use inflammatory words like this will finally get the Bernanke the terrorism recognition he so rightly deserves.   Since the US doesn’t export goods any longer our government has to rely on exporting inflation.  They seem to be pretty adept at this as well.

I said it earlier today! The demonstrations spreading to other nations is a sign of something a lot bigger to come. And there may be big consequences for US investors, despite the complacency

Regime change in the cards. suddenly we have street riots. Imagine that.
What is it they want in this little North African country?

Hmmmm. Well they have oil of course. But they also have rare earth minerals.

So we have our paid agents get in the street and start some rumbling and then the sheep think its their idea to get rid of their worthless President.

Case in point. Never, ever think that something you see is real, unless you can prove its real or that you know without a shadow of a doubt its real. These are the days we live in. The same thing could happen here and the sheep might think that what is happening is in their best interest. But be warned and watch and pay attention and keep your eyes and ears open and above all else, do not trust anybody.....

The nation to watch is egypt. Many analyst have stated that Egypt is one riot away from total islamic revolution. If that happens Israel is screwed because Egypt's military is pretty adavanced. Anyway the egyptian people are angry at the "Pharoh" Mubarack and his police state. The Islamic Brotherhood is gaining traction in Egyptian and revolution happen in the nation this would change everything.

Just because the AMERICAN PEOPLE are being SCREWED and led down a PATH to SOCIALISM doesn't mean we can't sit back and relax occasionally, right???

Light a blunt and listen to some Pink Floyd while enjoying the video "SUNSETS ON AMERICA" at (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WfJFGQiK3nc) for a little relief and escape from the TYRANNY.
