I find myself agreeing with Anne more and more recently....
This scares me....
I give the woman kudos.
She’s put everything on the line.
Those that think she’s a nut don’t appreciate all that she has done and wouldn’t attempt to do 1/8 of what she has accomplished.
I pray she stays safe and out of jail, but, I think if Bath-House Barry, his IRS minions and Holder incarcerate her, she’ll end up doing even MORE good from jail.
THAT’S where all the testosterone has gone...Ann Barnhardt’s got it.
She's "dead on" in what she says in terms of it being too late. It can't be walked back. The system will implode.
Her explanation of how contaminated the system is with the stench and decay of CDS ( credit default swaps ) is something I was questioning 3 or 4 years ago, but few thought it meant anything. It turns out this is the terminal disease that will directly cause the implosion.
Even on the threads I start myself I need to wait half an hour for my comments to appear! And even then, some of ‘em never make it.
Is it the case for you guys as well?
If not, what should I do to be able to comment directly, immediately?
Everything I post appears immediately. You’re a noob and still probably being supervised. Forgive the mods; they must continually wrestle with trolls from DU who register in order to cause trouble.
I’m afraid that Anne may very well be right. We are in for some difficult times.
"The idea hit him as he read a book about the evolution of the U.S. bond market and the creation, in the mid-1990s, at J. P. Morgan, of the first corporate credit-default swaps. He came to a passage explaining why banks felt they needed credit-default swaps at all. It wasnt immediately obviousafter all, the best way to avoid the risk of General Electrics defaulting on its debt was not to lend to General Electric in the first place. In the beginning, credit-default swaps had been a tool for hedging: some bank had loaned more than they wanted to to General Electric because G.E. had asked for it, and they feared alienating a long-standing client; another bank changed its mind about the wisdom of lending to G.E. at all. Very quickly, however, the new derivatives became tools for speculation: a lot of people wanted to make bets on the likelihood of G.E.s defaulting. It struck Burry: Wall Street is bound to do the same thing with subprime-mortgage bonds, too. Given what was happening in the real-estate marketand given what subprime-mortgage lenders were doinga lot of smart people eventually were going to want to make side bets on subprime-mortgage bonds. And the only way to do it would be to buy a credit-default swap.
The credit-default swap would solve the single biggest problem with Mike Burrys big idea: timing. The subprime-mortgage loans being made in early 2005 were, he felt, almost certain to go bad. But, as their interest rates were set artificially low and didnt reset for two years, it would be two years before that happened. Subprime mortgages almost always bore floating interest rates, but most of them came with a fixed, two-year teaser rate. A mortgage created in early 2005 might have a two-year fixed rate of 6 percent that, in 2007, would jump to 11 percent and provoke a wave of defaults. The faint ticking sound of these loans would grow louder with time, until eventually a lot of people would suspect, as he suspected, that they were bombs. Once that happened, no one would be willing to sell insurance on subprime-mortgage bonds. He needed to lay his chips on the table now and wait for the casino to wake up and change the odds of the game. A credit-default swap on a 30-year subprime-mortgage bond was a bet designed to last for 30 years, in theory. He figured that it would take only three to pay off.
The only problem was that there was no such thing as a credit-default swap on a subprime-mortgage bond, not that he could see. Hed need to prod the big Wall Street firms to create them. But which firms? If he was right and the housing market crashed, these firms in the middle of the market were sure to lose a lot of money. There was no point buying insurance from a bank that went out of business the minute the insurance became valuable. He didnt even bother calling Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers, as they were more exposed to the mortgage-bond market than the other firms. Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Deutsche Bank, Bank of America, UBS, Merrill Lynch, and Citigroup were, to his mind, the most likely to survive a crash. He called them all. Five of them had no idea what he was talking about; two came back and said that, while the market didnt exist, it might one day. Inside of three years, credit-default swaps on subprime-mortgage bonds would become a trillion-dollar market and precipitate hundreds of billions of losses inside big Wall Street firms. Yet, when Michael Burry pestered the firms in the beginning of 2005, only Deutsche Bank and Goldman Sachs had any real interest in continuing the conversation. No one on Wall Street, as far as he could tell, saw what he was seeing."
Here is the Economic Presentation by Ann that VideoDoctor is referring to: "The Economy Is Going To Implode"
And then watch what happens.
I know where Im going. Im going to Rome to face down Caesar Obama and be crucified with Our Lord who already has and will have the Final Victory. If you should meet Our Lord as you are exiting Rome, will you turn around, take up your cross and go with Him, or will you lower your eyes and pretend not to see Him?
Where are YOU going?
Ann is a brave girl!
"If the musloids or anyone else actually managed to kill me, WW3 would start five minutes later. Sniper teams would form, as I have the 100 Heads protection guarantee from the sniper and SPECOPS community in the United States. And the 100:1 isnt a total. It is PER SNIPER. Bye-bye, Dearborn."-- Ann Barnhardt
There it is.
"I recently saw a video of an Islamic execution taped in the Middle East. In it, the three condemned men were bound hand and foot, standing beside an incinerator, or furnace. The men were doused with an accelerant, presumably gasoline, and then thrown alive into the incinerator, where they could be seen writhing in flames as they died in the furnace. These men were not Jews, but that is beside the point. They were human beings who ran afoul of Sharia Law.
This is what is coming. This, and executions like this, are the inevitable destination of both islam and Marxism. Hitler had his ovens. Stalin had his gulags. Mao had his execution quotas. The Khmer Rouge had their killing fields.
And so here is what I say to all people of good will, but specifically today to the Jews. If a second holocaust begins and you find yourself standing bound on the precipice of an incinerator Im coming.
My first tactical objective will be to come in, guns-a-blazing, and rescue you and well both get out of there, and hopefully take a bunch of evil men out in the process. That is objective number one.
If that doesnt work and I am unable to free you by force of arms, I will negotiate with the evil executioners to switch places with you. I will offer to be executed in your place, so long as you are freed. That is tactical objective number two.
If that doesnt work, then I am going to stay and die with you.
There is no possible way that I am going to turn my back on you as you stand on the precipice of the incinerator, walk away and let you die alone and afraid and then congratulate myself on my ability to handle and survive the situation. No. I am going to stand beside you, I am going to throw my arms around you, and I am going hold you and tell you that I love you. I am going to make certain that the last sounds you hear ringing in your ears on this earth are the sounds of a friend telling you that you are loved, and that you are precious, and that you are not, never have been, and never will be alone. And then we will go into the incinerator together. Because I cant think of a better way to die with the words I love you on my lips. THAT is tactical objective number three.
One final question. Do you honestly believe that Barack Obama or Nancy Pelosi or Harry Reid or John Kerry or any of the Hollywood people, or Michael Moore or Keith Olbermann or Joy Behar or any of the people who would call me a venomous hate-spewing bigot would stay and die with you if it came down to that? Of course they wouldnt and we all know this. But I am the hate monger. Im the bigot. I am the danger to society.
Ladies and gentlemen, Western Civilization has officially jumped the shark. The words, I love you, delivered in sincere Christian charity are now a hate crime that warrants the suppression of free speech.
Thank you for your time.
I heard a major American party curse God. And then America elected them to the highest office in the land.
Our countrymen have invited judgement.
The rest of us need to be looking up and preparing for dark days. Pray, work and prepare to be there for the people closest to you. When everyone else is losing their heads you’ll have to keep yours. God is with us, we just have to hold fast and keep courage.
Then when the shaking stops be prepared to rebuild.
I hear ya’ - she may be a little extreme for some - but like you - I’m more and more seeing the efficacy of what she’s saying.
People think I’m nuts when I say we won’t make it to 2016 - they need to listen to Ann......
I am only 30 minutes into the video and I am floored!
These are some of the same connections (humbly) I have been making for the last couple of years but Ann has put them together in an amazingly compelling way!
So far I differ in this way; I will continue to pay my taxes and obey the law as much as I can to keep a low profile. I want to be around on the other side of whatever conflagration to help rebuild.
