Devaluation Disregarded

Michael Victory's picture


from thevictoryreport:

I would love to see a ZeroHedge revolver map blowing up. And because I see the paradigm crumbling and hanker the authentic, I just reckoned everyone else did too. Not true. How may “business” and “finance” guys have never even heard of the world’s largest financial blog, we turn to daily? It’s a trip to scan their grape to get their perceptions of “markets” and the economy. These guys are parrots or oblivious (likely both), and can regurgitate counterfeit stats faster than an Ivey Bridge.

I came to.. in late 2008, early 2009 and made goal to spread the word to as many people possible about banksters, debt, sound money, and the collapse a hand.

I’m happy to report my words and actions have not entirely fallen on deaf ears. Regrettably, those who believe the narrative to be overreaction surpass them, and consequently continue to needle and motivate me. And from this drive (and a new thang for Final Cut Pro) Devaluation Disregarded is born.

"When paradigms fail, there is abundant evidence in advance of the trouble. The evidence goes unheeded, even when individuals in charge are aware of it."

Seriously, what does this gobbledigook mean? "Hanker the authentic..." "scan their grape..."

If you are going to portray yourself as a sage critic of the world's largest, most influential and (witness the current panicked flight to the dollar) most trusted monetary system, you ought at least be able to present your critique with a level of expression that exceeds a grade school dropout.

To wit, the name of the processor powering the mindless regurgitation of statistics is an "Ivy Bridge."

Submitting such nonsense devalues the great work done on ZH by the many other writers who take time to proofread their submissions.

...and before the flames are lit for making the statement, "most trusted monetary system", I am not at all saying that it is worthy of the trust.

As long as I am paying taxes my fiat will be good for something.  I recognize that crony capitalism is turning our country into a plutocracy, regardless of what happens to our fiat in relation to the other equally stressed world currencies, and that must be reversed to where small businesses rule.  We need to have big incentives for businesses to stay small to disperse the power that multinationals have on our global economy and currencies.  imo.

With a currency collapse, the drones and apache's will be parked.  Then we will all be equal.

Hold your fire until a complete collapse.

Many paths lie ahead of us. Some will destroy property rights others will not. Upon which of them will we travel? Time and the choices of people will tell. Make your choices be good ones.

Property rights, at least for the livestock, are illusory.  Property (and life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness) will be confiscated whenever "it is determined" that "The Greater Good" requires it.

Who determines the "it is determined"?

The powers that be determine THEIR OWN greater good. Everytime we vote we validate their plans and projects that serve only TPTB, using the money that we earn and pay to our corrupt government in taxes, and also using the resources of this land that belong to all citizens. AND we also pay the salaries, benefits and retirement costs of all those government employees we vote for who come to office only to serve the needs of TPTB  and those appointed by the same corrupt people we elected, who also work only in the interests of TPTB, not "the people". Time for a real change?

Where is the mention of US unfunded liabilities of $119 trillion and growing at $6.69 trillion a year?  

It took from 1776 to Oct 24, 1981 for US debt to reach $1 trillion.  Now we add $1.5 trillion a year to the debt.

I am well aware that what you say is the truth. So I green arrowed ya. The way things have been since the end of WWII was simply financed by too much debt, and it has toi end sooner or later. Sooner would have been better, later is going to cost us heavily. ;-(

I agree.  In the western world alone (who knows about asia, they have been conditioned to accept lies for years) I see at least 60 trillion in bank debt being used as "collateral" on over 700 trillion in derivative "bets".  Total bullshit.  I also see a debt jubilee being considerable less destructive than WWIII.  In reality however, none of this is about "money".  It is about power and control, period.  It always has been.

Economics is deliberately confusing, but after fifteen years of study I have cut through the jargon and math and can now explain economics in just one sentence: Economics is the publishing of political agendas that are hidden within known-false assumptions. If one accepts these assumptions then one accepts the hidden agendas.   http://www.jayhanson.us/index.htm http://jayhanson.us/dieoffindex.html : old index. big.

"Money" is a tool of those that possess power and control.  This is true regardless of its form, whether it's paper or digital bits or gold.

Power and control is the result of public opinion.

"The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the public is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country." Edward Bernays

"The ruling class has the schools and press under its thumb. This enables it to sway the emotions of the masses." – Albert Einstein

" 'Who controls the past,' ran the Party slogan, 'controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.' " -- George Orwell 1984

"Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun." -- Mao Tse-Tung

"Terrorism is the best political weapon for nothing drives people harder than a fear of sudden death."- Adolf Hitler

The best thing you could hope for is a money that has accountability already built-in.  FYI- you can not print more gold.

Same as it ever was.

Ah yes -- there's always "hope".  That intangible that's always at the top of the list of important concepts when there are elections and church gatherings.  Hope springs eternal.

I realize that gold can't be printed.  It can be stolen though.  There is historical precedent for that possibility.  Gold has traditionally been mostly possessed by the same rouges that also govern.  There is reason to believe that this  is still the case.  They use gold as a tool to obtain and increase their power and influence, which in turn increases the amount of gold they possess.

Who has Yamashita's gold?  How much gold does the Rothschild family control?

Who has Yamashita's gold?  Who has the Gold Hitler stole? Who has the gold Rosenveldt stole?

I can answer those questions partially.  Men who are not my countrymen posess that gold, men who consider me to be untermensch livestock, they are the ones who have that gold.

But what does that matter? Does your comment bear any relevancy sir? Your comment is like saying:

"Screw food, some people out there have tons of food, way more food than me so I don't care about food"
