    The US, in its own decline, is showing this same self-destructive tendency. The worse things get, the greater the inclination of the citizenry to say, “Carry on, everything’s fine.”

Local Paper Sums Up Jackson Hole Perfectly

Tyler Durden's picture


There was something missing at this year's Jackson Hole meeting of the world's most 'brilliant' monetary minds - a stock market rally - and while VIX was slammed lower (by mysterious forces assuming that uncertainty must have fallen), even the local rag understood i) the context - Yellen did not even make the main headline in The Jackson Hole Daily (the 'common folk' preferring something far more - or less - trivial, like the weather); and ii) All she has done is raise uncertainty. We await the machines to manually read these headlines before the requisite trading actions are taken... It seems, as we noted before, the Fed's magic is running out (for now).

Simply put, no one cares about Yellen except the 1%!

No centerfold?  

Ms. August, Janet Yellen, lists her turn ons as ink, balding men and depends undergarments. Her turn offs include common sense, truth and the penis.

I am thinking that OUR biggest weapon is to declare "them" irrelevant and less than endowed with any intelligence.  I am thinking that tactics that counter behavior of bullying; worldwide shunning. Take money out of banks; buy gold/silver; give them no headlines; decline to renew any "news" feed.  Shun the bastards.

Ignoring people who control the money supply won't help.

Ah, I'm back from vacation and the world is still a shithole, I see.  Good to be home.

Let's Play Pretend says Janet. We'll pretend that we have only one way to go. I'll tie you up and then not let you go! We'll say, oh, there is just one answer. Tie up the Economy or Let the market go wild.

You want to go wild, but you are tied up. Now over in the closet is a boogy man... he is going wild in the closet and he is eating all the food in the house. It is called Extraction.

What can I, Janet, Do about the boogy man in the Closet?

All I can do is either keep you tied or... untie you and let the markets go wild with interest rates, ratings, auditing, fraud, Capital Flight to other markets, Stagnant capital, and investment flight to safe harbors...

Well the weather forecast in Jackson Hole might be more prescient than expected.  "Fall is near..."  This is a pretty big deal in the Ukraine because Fall is near followed by winter very soon.

the fake money supply.

their power is like their money : an illusion, a card castle.

the only power they have is the power we give them. it's not about ignoring, it's about stopping to give them power (which you're not ready to unfortunately & with you billions of other)

TYP: Louis T. McFadden from Pennsylvania seems to have covered some of this ground, but it was like 1934 and apparently he didn't find support.

The fact that the FED is a Private Corporation with Private Bankers as Stock holders (Probably)... is a weakness. We need to prove and keep in Media Print alive this idea that Corporations are not Patriots. Corporations can take their money and leave the game. This is what they did in the late 19th Century, again in the Depression, and again after this 2008 Financial Crisis. Bankers prefer Rent Seeking & Gambling. Call it what you will. Gresham's Law or Corruption or Racketeering (RICO Violations).


Bill Black, William K. Black does a good job on this.

- Patriotism is a total Scam.
- Nationalism is a total scam.
- Problem is cognitive distortion, thinking you have only 2 choices: Black or White, Right or Wrong
- Or maybe we believe Authority Figures are good, Patriarchs are good, that anyone that gives a few bucks to charity is good, anyone with family and peers to support them is good... like the Federal Reserve

It is Mind Control or Cognitive Disfunction.

Advertising, Public Relations, Propaganda = Government & Federal Reserve & Wall Street banking

That big, wide, fast black diamond around the right side of the mountain will make you scream for joy. Or kill you. The only place I ever saw fast enough to out run Old Yellern's printer.

"Simply put, no one cares about Yellen except the 1%!"

Yeah, but the 1% control congress, the administration, all the banks, MSM, and the Department of Defense.

"Rain to clear but fall is near".  Sounds lovely.  Anything else of interest in the news?  Guess not.

Much of the economic landscape is beginning to look like something out of  "Alice And The Looking Glass" A bizarre  and unrecognizable land, a land that is distorted and papered over by ream after ream of paper. This paper has been rolling off the printing presses of central banks all across the world in an attempt to mask reality.

Peter Schiff says, printing money is to the economy what taking drugs is to a drug addict. In the short term it makes the economy feel good, but in the long run it is much worse off. What was once the "long run" or "distant future" may be getting much closer. More on what happens when the momentum ends in the article below.

I am certain that she is certain that they will continue to steal, but I am uncertain if she is certain as to how much.
