This steady up ramp since the beginning of 2013 looks identical to the steady up ramp in M0 from QE3. 

The FED is screwed because every single participant in the market knows this is the case, which means the second the FED stops printing look out below.

It’s amazing to see what $4 Trillion of on-the –books and $ 25 Trillion or so of off-the-public-books FRN’s can buy you.

The only way to really understand this would be to find the funny book.

Maybe it’s just an Excel spreadsheet named “Madoff 2008”.

"second the FED stops printing look out below."

The FED will NOT stop printing.  Period.  We are currently taking their word for how much money they are printing.  What is it allegedly now?  $65 Billion a month?  How do you know they aren't really printing a trillion a month?  Answer:  you don't.  We can't audit the Fed to find out.  They could be printing like MOFO's in the backround and keeping the stawk market on the up escalator, all while they are telling us they are tapering.  Markets that go down are bad for Keynesian politicians trying to buy votes.  They don't like down markets.

Remember the "we have to lie when things get really bad" meme?  I think everything they say is a lie.

In reply to your bit about taking the Fed's side over the cattle grazer, I'll say I do not support some cattle guy's right to gaze his cattle anywhere he pleases with no supervision.  Federal land is also my land and I'd just as soon the shit kickers didn't have free reign with their bovines. If you see sticking up for my rights as siding with the Feds, so be it.

Now, back to the regular scheduled programming.

I thought you were talking about the showdown in Nevada between a rancher and about 100 swat team people over a cow stepping on a turtle until I read the article.

Anyhow in Nevada right now is a stand off with a rancher that the feds are trying to turn into another Ruby Ridge...

You hit the nail on the head in response to him.  Also, the collectivist idea that Federal Land is OUR land is a misnomer.  We don't communally own anything that the Fed owns, they own us.

Once you accept the collectivist idea, the entire framework of private property is finished.

In short, dear fedgov (represented by a piece if paper, not flesh and blood human), come face me in court so I can face my accuser. It can't, therefore it does not exist consistent with private property.

Show me who was damaged by injury or property that is owned by a flesh and blood individual.

A victimless crime is no crime.

The concept is called LIBERTY! There are lots of principals worth risking loss of life for. This one is nearly at the foundation of them all!

I downvoted your OT remark for a few reasons.  One, it's off topic.  Two, the grazers were there before the BLM even came to be.  I guess the idea of homesteading is only allowed when the Feds say it is.  Three, the m.o. for killing and stealing Bundy's property has nothing to do with the turtles, but because the US government wants to frack there.

At the end of the day, no one will ever get away from the USG's oil and petrodollar without violence, theft, and deceit.  Carry on central government lover. Carry on.

The amazing thing to me is how many stupid people really believe this is about a turtle. It's funny how all the areas where the feds are "protecting" an animal or a bug are rich in natural resources.

Agreed.  Whatever excuse any agency, politician, or government body professes to be the reason for their violence is ALWAYS a lie.  The actions will always be realted to power over the people and resources, control over the people and resources, and theft in general. 

The Federal Reserve had to save the economy?  Bullshit, they had to save their cronies.

The US Military had to promote democracy in Iraq?  Bullshit, they had to save their petro dollar.

The list can go on forever.  I wish the fucking revolution would start by everyone withdrawing their consent already.

The fact that the family has been grazing cattle there for over a hundred years, and that the turtle is still found there and is endangered apparently everywhere else strikes at the heart of the Fed's argument that they rancher is causing damage.  But the overreach is everywhere...

1. Oregon farmer is going to jail because he built a pond on his property. 

2. Michigan farmer going to jail for raising hogs with the wrong tails.  Seriously, their tails don't meet goverment standards and are deemed feral by default.

3. Wisconsin farmer going to jail for selling the same cheese he always has because he doesn't go through the state licensed agency.  Seriously, his own industry a non-government agency was given control of his industry and tells him his cheese is bad.  Can't even have it tested to see if it's not except at their testing facility.  Guess what they, and only they found?

This list goes on and on....

Coming to your industry soon.

It's not. They like the idea of you thinking so, but really, they don't count you in the club at all. To the Feds or any state entity for that matter, you are just a tool to be used, abused and throw away after use. Telling you you are part of the club is like mental qualitative easing, but that's all it is.

If you consider either the bond market implodes or the stock market does which do you think the Fed would rather say let go down? I think it's rather obvious the stock market will be the one to let the proverbial air out of. Assuming of course you don't keep both up by printing the dollar to worthless paper. If the Fed decided the reserve currency is important they will now stop printing by yeas end. The stock market being a 6 month forward indicator is telling you this printing cycle is over.

     There's something odd going on here. The macro U.S. news was positive this morning and the dxy barely budged. There's massive flows of dollars flowing into Europe and I'm wondering if it's bond related (selling) to keep yields above the %2.60 area.
