I predict oil will fall due to the 2 Iran hoaxes being debunked...
and this move will cause the markets to rise.
More detail here:
Futures shot UP on the news. It baffles me.
They are too big to fail. Any Fed who would let them fail ought to be shot.
I wonder if there is anything they can do for Bernie. He has brought down the wrath of the Messiah on himself.
And the destruction of the American dollar continues....

I don’t get it... the price of gold hasn’t gone anywhere according to kitco.com... I sort of expected a rise in gold when the Feds bail out Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae...
