At Least They Are Finally Honest

From remarks by the Dick Fisher of the Dallas Fed:

  • The Fed has artificially sustained markets

Thank you for the admission, oh FOMC member. And to think just 4 years ago anyone accusing the Fed of using its "invisible hand" and doing everything in its power to solely focus on the stock market was labeled a "conspiracy theory" crackpot. One wonders what other "conspiracy theories" will be admitted by the Fed as fact in another four short years?

Hey Dick, did you take delivery of your GLD yet?

You can admit anything after the fact, because the next time the same people will just fall for it again.

I won't believe it until I hear it from Bernankes' lips. Someone in the MSM should ask him.

What??!! Stock and equity market prices are not efficiently priced due to the Federal Reserve violating the most basic of its statutory authority!

How much overpricing of stock and equity markets has the Fed violating its statutory authority led to, and what happens when Fed Reserve officials and staff members are called before the Senate to testify as to why they're illegally tampering with equity (and other markets)?

Will the Congress revoke the Federal Reserve's charter?

What is the level of distortion in other economic and financial markets due to the Federal Reserve violating the most basic of its statutory authority?

What will happen now that the Federal Reserve will, at a minimum, be forced to cease & desist from violating its charter? Will equity markets and stock prices crash? What about bonds and credit instruments?  What about other markets and instruments?

How has this illegal Federal Reserve action affected all other global markets?

Are we now amidst a massive, artificially propped up, sea of asset bubbles, that are prone to crash, now that the Federal Reserve will have to cease & desist from inflating them via methods that violate the plain intent and language of U.S. statute?

One might argue, that when someone is "finally honest" (as per the headline), they never were, and still aren't.

Forced honesty is fundamental dishonesty.

Unless all those COCKSUCKING CRIMINALS masquerading as central bankers are thrown in prison, NONE of the manipulation in any market will cease.

How about we hang the top 1000 controllers in the US for treason and crimes against humanity, that would send a clear message to the rest of them.

does this admissions set up Bernanke as committing perjury?

nope-1004's picture

He already did, by testifying that the Fed will not monetize.  Of course, that's all they've done.

Actually you can admit to doing anything you want when it comes to financial markets - there is little to no enforcement of laws to those connected.

The Fed could come out and outright admit to providing insider info to all the primary dealers, admit that those dealers made 2bil on the info and nothing would happen to anyone.

Yep, people will forget and continue to believe the opposite.  When the fuel is pulled away from this market, the engine will seize up and die.

If you look at the world around you obliquely, you can see what is happening.

1950's- Father knows best... a measured and wise and professional man guides his children (sheep) through life. Eisenhower was like our father. An authoritarian military regime protecting us from evil in our neighborhood...

Daily Paul:  Firearm manufacturers fire back. With passive resistance.

19 industry leaders have refused to deal with governments that disarm citizens. This continues the trend of division in the greater law enforcement community: those who protect the state and those who protect the people.

From The Blaze:

1. Olympic Arms, Inc

2. La Rue Tactical

3. EFI, LLC – Extreme Firepower

4. York Arms

5. Templar Custom

6. Cheaper Than Dirt

7. Bullwater Enterprises

8. Westfork Armory

9. Smith Enterprise

10. Alex Arms

11. Spike’s Tactical

12. Quality Arms

13. Liberty Suppressors

14. Doublestar Corp

15. American Spirit Arms

16. Trident Armory

17. Head Down Products

18. J&G Sales

19. Magpul (per below)

The statements by some of these firms are encouraging to say the least. They truly deserve our patronage.

Quality Arms Idaho: Will not supply any firearm or product, manufactured by us, or any other company nor will we warranty, repair, alter, or modify any firearm owned by any State, County or Municipality who infringes on the right of its citizens to bear arms under the 2nd amendment.

J&G Sales: Effective immediately, laws that restrict firearms, ammunition, or magazine possession by law abiding citizens will also be applied to state and local law enforcement and government agencies in that jurisdiction. All residents will be treated equally.

Trident Armory: Sunday night, 9pm. As of this moment, all contract bids and offers, as well as any current production contracts for any and all US government agencies and affiliates by Trident Armory are null and void. “We will no longer participate with, or work for a government where the “rights” of the people are able to be adjusted by the whim of the government”.” I will not build guns which can be used to disarm my fellow Americans.”

Take a moment to email your favorite manufacturer or dealer and encourage them to join the ranks of liberty!

This isn't doing anything radical, it's NOT DOING anything to support oppression. Passive resistance=non support.

Did I miss the 100-year anniversary? I WANT TO CELEBRATE!

Fed's BULLARD before Dick made suspiciously a lot of sense, even mentioning plans on raising the interest rate - first time for FED on my memory post-2008.

Flap your gums, flap! I want the EUR in free-fall!

December 29th 1913 was the day the act passed.

There were several important days leading up to passage however and I think ZH would be well served to mark and celebrate(?) each one.

On the evening of November 22, 1910, Sen. Aldrich and A.P. Andrews (Assistant Secretary of the Treasury Department), Paul Warburg (a naturalized German representing Baron Alfred Rothschild's Kuhn, Loeb & Co.), Frank Vanderlip (president of the National City Bank of New York), Henry P. Davison (senior partner of J. P. Morgan Company), Charles D. Norton (president of the Morgan-dominated First National Bank of New York), and Benjamin Strong (representing J. P. Morgan), left Hoboken, New Jersey on a train in view of a group of confused reporters, who were wondering why these bankers, representing about one-sixth of the world's wealth, were gathering at this particular place and time and leaving together.

Was that the infamous party in the Gold Room?

earleflorida's picture

""The Marriner S. Eccles Federal Reserve Bank Building"  @  33 Liberty Street, N.Y.

Yes,... a Mormon, whose church was backed by Kuhn & Loeb [Rothschild subsidiary?/ Warburg/ Schiff?]! 

Why: In the late 19th century the [LDS] Mormon Church was plagued by financial difficulties and felt their demise? Being very close to the Jewish religion they went hat-in-hand to a surprisingly, and fledgling financial institution called, Kuhn & Loeb!   [merged with Lehman brothers in 1977,... yes, the same Lehman?]

Thus, the Mormon's prospered... but there was a pound of flesh to be had sometime in the far away future of a soul Man-Made-Mormon?', called, 'the-flesh-trump-card'... sub-titled, 'Opportunistic Skulduggery'?

FDR brings Marriner Stoddard Eccles along for the ride, whom by the way was quite fond of Keynesian Economics, having broken bread often with Keynes himself!

What happens next is quite predictable if you follow finance and history-- FDR makes Marriner the Chairman of the Federal Reserve Banking System... and the rest is history {(1934-1951)(Ps. Keynes dies in 1946 btw)}!

so, are there any questions on who runs the USSA-FRBs and USSA's State Dept.?  Please forward to Ben Shalom the Bernak... or Alan J [as in Jay homer Simpson, or Judas?] Greenspan!?


thankyou  Tyler
