Marc Faber Calls Bernanke A Liar, Thinks US Inflation Is Running Up To 8%, Believes Pakistan Will Fall Next

Tyler Durden's picture

Marc Faber is on a roll these days. The Gloom, Doom and Boom report author, who recently made headlines after calling Obama a whore minutes ahead of the president's SOTU address, proceeds to go on a truthiness rampage, and with his now traditional grin, proceeds to call Satan Bernanke a "liar" to the entire CNBC Europe audience. In addition to making his thoughts clear on the topic of inflation (5-8%), he also observes where the Egyptian riots will strike next: "You may not have a problem in Saudi Arabia and in the Emirates, in Kuwait and Qatar, because there the governments can heavily subsidize food if they want to. But I am worried that what has happened in Egypt will happen in Pakistan... I think Egypt is a reminder to people that politics, and social events, and geopolitics have a meaningful effect on asset markets. The developed markets have way outperformed, and now I think that it may be a wake up call that the US outperforms emerging economies for a while." As for inflation "The annual cost of living increases are more than 5% today and the BLS is continuously lying about the inflation rate, including Mr Bernanke, he's a liar. Inflation is much higher than what they publish. I think that inflation is between 5% and 8% per annum in the US, and in Western Europe, a little bit lower, also 4-5% per annum." Oh yeah, Pakistan has nukes.

To the above group... is this the end of your racist attacks on the legitimate (there was an election, and he won rather handily if you recall) leader of the "greatest country in the world?"

Real men take to the streets with grievances (and maybe put forward some positive alternative policies)... wankers like you just spew thinly veiled racist vitriol, echoing their favorite slimy GOP / Tea Party cowards... Glenn, Shawn, and Sarah (although they seem to be in the process of throwing her under the bus... a shelf life issue I believe) would be proud.

Pathetic... and getting very old, and very tired.

I guess you missed the "Bush" part of the above name.

I can't speak for others, but I hate both Republicans and Democrats, and I savaged Bush just as much or more than I do Obama, and I have called for Beck to be dragged down to the lowest circle of Hell for his betrayal of the libertarian cause.

Ignorance isn't bliss.  You ignorance is just a tool that your masters use to turn you against your peers.  Cries of "racism" are nothing more than a way to shut down any and all debate.

Take back your accusations of racism, or go fuck yourself.

I see you have guitars as an avatar. That must mean you're into music. OK. The San Fran Seattle crowd is probably not real comfortable here in the midst of real freedom of speech and the press. The bigotry does often get a bit ruthles and you are certainly welcome to speak out about it. However, your comments impress me as coming from the vast group of brainwashed sheep who believe that criticizing a black president is racist which, when you think about it, makes you the racist. You are preoccupied with Hussein's race. Too bad. The reality, IMHO, Barry is a jerkoff communist and a well documented liar mutually exclusive of what anybody before him did. He has not a clue what the fuck is going on and you know even less. So do some real research and grow up.


tmosley's picture

No, racism simply doesn't add anything to a given conversation.  You attempt to shut down valid criticisms by calling them "racist.

So yeah, go fuck yourself.

 Dr. Faber is not fuzzy, at all. He has the very unusual habit of saying exactly what his analysis reveals to him; I'm not interested to betting against him.

I just wish Marc would let us know how he really feels.

H/T to TD and ZH for accurately reporting the real inflation while the B(L)S and every other fraudulent agency said there was none.

"This shits got to end"

Problem Is's picture

Thanks to Tyler at ZH, John Williams at Shadow Stats and the Internet...

We have the information necessary to rename the B(L)S to B( )S.

Internet Key to Dissemination of Facts
Prior to say '95 or so, without the free flow of Internet information giving rise to indispensable facts dissenters like Zero Hedge...

Some would intuitively know the government and finance oligarchs were lying...We simply would not have timely facts from ZH et al to make a difference.

The majority of Amerikans would be totally sleep walking. Some of the sheeple are starting to get it...

Fight the Obummer-Leiber-Douche Internet Kill Switch
Fascist control of the Internet will hamper the people. Alternative news sites like ZH et al, are crippling the Worthless, Corporate Whore, Dinosaur Media...

The bankruptcy and disappearance of clowns like CNBC, CNN, ABC and too many fools and useful idiots to mention... are a bennefit to the people...

Hence the Fed bailout of GE... and the crying of the worthless media whores for their own TARP...

good thing Pakistan doesn't have nukes


and remind me didn't Pakistan get rid of their dictator Musharaff a couple of years ago?


just now on Bloomberg TV Marg and Keene chatting - "it's amazing how in the last 12 hours everyone has gone over to the Stiglitz view of the situation in Egypt Yesterday at this time everything was contained and under control and now ...."

Salinger get your facts straight

Pakistan has between 150 and 200 nuke warheads and are going full steam ahead in enriching more and more plutonium.

Perhaps his sarcasm detector has been compromised by Stuxnet.

You should be able to detect such obvious sarcasm, especially if you spend even the smallest amount of time on ZH.


By the way, plutonium isn't "enriched".  Plutonium is separated from irradiated uranium fuel.  The fissile and non-fissile isotopes are then purifed and converted to metallic state for use in weapons.  For some power reactors, uranium fuel can be enriched with fissile plutonium for energy extraction.

f-ing logins and text editor bull s#*t

I meant to post this response here.


Pu must be enriched to make it weapons-grade.  It comes out of the reactor (where it is created) with several isotopes including Pu-239 and Pu-240.  The Pu-239 must be enriched  and the Pu-240 must be minimized.

holy shit, you're kidding! do you have a link? that could be serious.

Pretty obvious sarcasm to me at least.

Pakistan also has sophisticated ( much batter than Indian ) delivery system. Pakistan has developed its own cruise missile as good as Tomahawk cruise missile, named the Babur missile.

Motorhead's picture

Cool, let's buy uranium stocks, hehe.

Triggernometry's picture

Those numbers are questionable, but possible.

Plutonium isn't enriched, its processed from the spent fuel of a breeder reactor.

You must be joking. Otherwise you must be a Category 5 Moron.

I have to say that the intellect of many of the  posters here at ZH has deteriorated to levels unimaginable a year ago. Did a Yahoo message board get shut down or is school out today?

tmosley's picture

Well, it IS a snow day over much of America today.

LeBalance's picture

yes, it is obvious that many recent posters have not passed the eating of their own excrement state of development.


lol, strike out the "recent" lol

I called my friends up north on Sunday and told them to stock up on food, get cash out of bank, and keep the gas tank filled. I have a strong feeling the SHTF soon. One of them had no clue about Egypt and what is going on. Most people are like that.

jus_lite_reading's picture

Didn't you tell them that last month? And the month before?


Tell them to watch the Zeitgeist 3

I get a kick out of all these idiots with feelings about the end of the world.  I gather that most are over the age of 50 and what they are mistaking for a general malaise in the world is really just them not being able to get it up anymore (loss of essence, see Dr. Strangelove for details).



MachoMan's picture

I doubt it... people over 50 have actually seen crises...  they have been conditioned to dispense with irrational fear...  [of course, it also prohibits them from using deduction instead of induction for our present predicament]

SilverDOG's picture

Idiots abound. Including those who discard history, using denial. Great grandparents stocked up. Protective reasoning, justifiably so. Those of us far younger than 50 and comprehending potential need, laugh openly at the grazing idiots. You've been trained.
