This Is What Happens When You Ask Too Many (Or The Wrong) Questions

Tyler Durden's picture





 

With the lies, cheating, and conspiracies running wild in the US, we thought it worth dusting off the archive and remembering Michael Burry. Burry, infamous for his 'Big Short' into the subprime crash that made him and his clients extremely wealthy, reflected on his ability to see this coming in an Op-ed at the time asking a broad swath of politicians, economists, and professional 'seers' why they didn't see 'It' coming? As he explains, soon after asking that uncomfortable question, things escalated rapidly for him and his firm... simply unbelievable in the context of the ongoing investigations currently... As he explains, "I bet against America, and won," and it seems 'America' didn't like that...

He did not bet against America, he bet against the clowns running America.

The problem is that the clowns figured out that their circus act was not farcical enough, so going forward they decided to turn everything into a fatal theater of the macabre.

OK - in the spirit of asking questions???

Public debt = '08 - $5.1 T .... '13 - 11.9 T --->$6.8T or approx 235% increase

Intragov debt = '08 - $4.08 T .... '13 - $4.86T --->$784B or approx 19% increase

Total outstanding debt = '08 - 9.21 T .... $16.765 T --->$7.5T or 182% increase

Anybody want to answer the question why the public has gone ballistic while the intra is relatively slow moving?  ($3T Fed, $3T Japan / China?)

America is controled by the Global Elite.  They have no country, and their only desire is to rule us all.  This is how they operate and quell dissent.

They went after this guy too

Andrew Maguire is an independent bullion trader and a whistleblower. He alleged to United States regulators that fraud had been committed, and that prices in the international gold and silver markets had been manipulated. Maguire and his wife were injured in a hit-and-run accident a day after he was identified as the source of the allegations.

And many others.

They harass you with the IRS, the court system, federal agencies, thugs or hitmen, whatever it takes to shut you up.

Everyone needs to know this, thanks Zero Hedge for help getting the word out.

If everyone knows, it's the only shot we have left at freedom, and living in the America we want.

Citizen.....Schmitizin......bombs away.  Or ship him to Benghazi for the rebuild.

Or just have Eric Holder escort him to Hillary's house for a little education about Vince Foster and Jerry Parks.....

 

"According to Ambrose Evans-Pritchard in a 1996 Telegraph (UK) article, Hillary Clinton asked Vince Foster to help her spy on her libertine husband in 1990. Foster hired Jerry Parks, an Arkansas investigator who later worked as the head of security for the Clinton/Gore campaign. According to Parks's widow, "Jerry asked Vince why he needed this stuff on Clinton. He said he needed it for Hillary." When Vince Foster showed up dead in a Washington-area public park in the summer of 1993, Parks was terrified. Two months later Parks was shot nine times at close range, at a stoplight, in his SUV, in Little Rock. Parks's home was then raided by eight Federal agents, including officers from the FBI, IRS, Secret Service, and (unusual for a domestic case) the CIA."

Clinton, like Obama, is a CIA plant; they love that "broken family" narrative, makes the recruits more cold-blooded and pliable.

All this is detailed in Roger Morris' book about the Clintons, Partners in Power.  Morris, a serious CIA-Cold War insider, shows how Clinton, then William Jefferson Blythe, changed his name to that of his hated dead step-father, Roger Clinton Sr. because of his step-uncle, Raymond 'Buddy' Clinton's influence.  Raymond was THE godfather of the Dixie Mafia, operating gambling, bookmaking, whorehouses, behind the facade of legit car-dealerships in Hot Springs, AR.

Raymond introduced his bright, gregarious step-nephew (frm the brioken family) to the CIA thru his (Raymond's) association to New Orleans Sicialian mobster Carlos Marcello, who did a lot of 'wet-work' for the outfit in Cuba, where he (Marcello) had lost a bundle when Castro took over.

They're both cardboard cutouts; ditto for W. Bush when the outfit took Daddy Bush's word on fuckup #1, junior.

Way off topic, but there's science backing that decision up. One of my ex GFs is in the same boat as A.J. is, had breast cancer twice before 30 and no woman in her family has made it past 50 due to cancer, and most have had it multiple times.

There's a highly specific pair of genetic defects, (named BRCA1 and BRCA2) that appear at very high frequency among women ashkenazi jews (which Jolie is). If you have these mutations, you're basically fucked, but if they do the mastectomy/ovary removal, the lifespan is nearly normal.

Methinks you have done little research on this.

It would appear that some variants of said gene actually protect from breast cancer.

Lifestyle is probably the biggest influence on the incidence of cancer that we have control of.

All those 'harmless chemicals' that corporations put in the air we breath, the water we drink and the food we eat are large part of the problem too and we have little control of those due to political 'fund raising' aka BRIBERY and regulators that don't regulate.

Could THIS be the fourth shoe to drop? This possibility of a faked kidnapping to make the head puppet look good before the election was discussed just after the Benghazi-gate event happened. This at the time seemed very possible, and then the story was obfuscated. Now it is back on the front burner and really getting so hot, the babylonians are scared and in a croner which make them dangerous.

It is obviously probable that the Benghazi-gate STAGED event contained both the elements of a botched kidnapping event, and or has a lot to do with the illegal arms smuggling. Take your choice, all of this is absolutely awful and the United States of America has NO BUSINESS hiring mercenary armies with American tax payer dollars so the banksters can profit from more useless baseless wars as the rest of America goes broke.

Here is the original op-ed: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/04/04/opinion/04burry.html  good read.

The resulting harassment he recieved just confirms that so many in and in bed with the government have little desire for the truth and are most concerned with saving face or having history see them as credible.  It should make you ponder the likes of the ECB, Paul "the world is flat" Krugman, the Fed, Jamie Dimon and most recently the POTUS and attorney general who are willing to do or say anything to maintain their level of power, influence, and wealth while escaping culpability for anything sinister or criminal. In the end God will be the judge and there will be no escaping the truth.

And collectively as a nation we will continue to bend over and let Uncle Sam have his way.

Don't fuck with the Empire. That Americans find this amazing just shows you how valuable a Classical education is and how vapid the argument that you should only educate to the economy and jobs.

 

"Greek and Latin history is WORTHLESS!!!" screams GOP, needing more ignorant slaves.

 

-> Bum fucked in a dystopian prison system.

This is old meat. Most of us know this... I had hoped? I saw this within 30 mins of him saying it.

So did Goldman Sachs and every other terrorist organization that bought credit default swaps starting in early 2005, when they saw the inevitable result of their fraud.

Good to see a true American get some oxygen for a change.

Unfortunately, when the chemtrails stop and the sun shines through,

Mr. Burry will slowly fry to a crisp along with the rest of the animals

and plants on planet Earth.

Apple / Foxconn

As zerohedge questiones some  weeks ago - its becoming reality in the near future:

Foxconn  Apple’s longtime collaborator that manufactures Apple’s iPhones and iPads, and Apple  might break up their business arrangement in the near future.

Yeh Bernanke and the DC mob. They are blowing the faces off children by the 1000s and don't want to get caught or researched as to how they do it. They didn't teach him much over there at the U.C.L.A.

Sounds like he's been eating the G.M.O.

I don't care about gold but Land speculators must be regulated, they are not ready or willing to use the land they hold, they just deny its use to others. How banksters can create so much Libertards???

I bet against America, and won," and it seems 'America' didn't like that...

Even more damning, he bet against Goldman Sachs and won. Apparently in the eyes of our government and regulators that’s impossible for any relative unknown in the financial community to do, and worthy of an audit right there.

Now what would make them feel like that?

He made that speech before the revelations of the past week where obama and Holder have launched attacks on everyone that they conceived as a political opponent, 500 small time tea party organizations to campaign contributors. Obama knows nothing about medicine yet he forced obama care on our country and this fellow has degree in medicine plus economics and understands economics better than this entire administration. He gets audited and obama gets AF1 and a Nobel prize.
