Saving the dollar was never a consideration. In fact, quite the opposite: the plan is clearly to destroy the dollar. I believe that statement is far past the point of being "theoretical".

Uhhh, silver is 8% from an all time high, and gold is at its all time high.

Also, stocks can never be in a bubble.  Only precious metals can.

AMZN's move was before the FOMC release and has since done nothing.  Silver has moved 1% up since the release.

Looks like the press conference is going to be a publicity stunt to defend his genocidal actions.  In the end, the very fact that this moron is having to go on a media blitz to defend the fed's action wreaks of desperation and the end for these fucktards is nearer.

This is another stock market bubble, right? And it is going to burst, right?

At some point, right?

Or is Bernanke really so mad or stupid as to think that hyperinflation is going to be the way out of this, to get people spending again, to prove 'the recovery'?

Is this going to be the straw that breaks the camel's back, where China says 'Here you go, $2 trillion of US assets, we'd rather have the money now than wait for it to fall to zero'?

after's today's FOMC Stmt I'm convinced more than ever that Stockman is right.....

"This is not 1981,this is not 'morning again in America. We have drifted now for 30 years. We're now becoming the banana republic [of] finance, printing -- the Fed, these mad men who are out of control at the Fed are printing -- new money equal to 100% of the debt that we're issuing each month. This will not end well, it's going to end in a disaster."

My prediction yesterday:

"Place your bets: no meaningful change in the FOMC position, other than perhaps a nod to inflation as something they need to keep an eye on. In a good way, right, FOMC? (Wink wink!)

DOW 13000 hats please, Gold to 1750, oil at 125."
