  • Trump calls Federal Reserve his 'biggest threat' (must look into Obama/Rahm era activities)

    Washington (AFP) - President Trump reignited his controversial criticism of the central bank Tuesday, calling the Federal Reserve his "biggest threat." Trump followed up previous strong attacks on the Fed by complaining that interest rates are rising too quickly. "My biggest threat is the Fed, because the Fed is raising rates too fast," he told Fox Business television. Trump acknowledged that the central bank is independent, "so I don't speak to them." He then leveled direct criticism at Fed Chairman Jerome Powell, who he said should be slower on interest rate rises."It's going too fast, because you look at the...
  • President Trump is Right, The Fed is Loco

    Donald Trump just made one of the most brilliant moves of his entire presidency. By accusing the Federal Reserve of “going loco”, he is placing the blame for the coming stock market crash and horrifying economic downturn squarely where it belongs, and he is firing up millions of true conservatives among his base at the same time. For many, many years, a lot of us have been trying to educate the American people about the deeply insidious Federal Reserve system. As Ron Paul once so astutely observed, it is actually about as “federal” as Federal Express is. (More at link..)

    Stocks fell in volatile trading Thursday, a day after the major indexes suffered steep losses sparked by higher rates and a sell-off in tech shares. The Dow Jones Industrial Average traded 650 points lower, bringing its two-day losses to more than 1,400 points. The S&P 500 dropped 2.1 percent and was on pace for a six-day losing streak. The broad index also broke below its 200-day moving average for the first time since May. The Nasdaq Composite pulled back 1.5 percent and entered correction territory. The major indexes fell after some of the major tech names failed to recover from...

    Donald Trump hit out at the Federal Reserve on Wednesday, accusing them of “going loco” over interest rate hikes this year, hours after the worst US stock market sell-off since February. Mr Trump said in an interview on Fox News that the market plunge was not because of his trade conflict with China, instead blaming the US central bank. “That wasn’t it. The problem I have is with the Fed,” he said. “The Fed is going wild. They’re raising interest rates and it’s ridiculous. The Fed is going loco.” He added: “They’re so tight. I think the Fed has gone...
  • Don't Let the Fed End the Trump Prosperity

    There's an old cliche that the Federal Reserve likes to take away the punch bowl just when the party is getting going. That's what President Trump suspects that Fed Chairman Jerome Powell is doing now by raising interest rates at a time of a booming economy. Last week, Trump took a shot at the Fed when he complained to Reuters that "I'm not thrilled with them raising interest rates." When asked if he believed that the Fed should be "independent," Trump said, "I believe in the Fed doing what's good for the country." In response to these comments, many in...

This 7-minute video is one of the best short explanations I've seen.

    President Trump sharply criticized the Federal Reserve this week, saying interest rate increases are hurting the economy. Trump will have the opportunity to fashion the central bank in the image he would like as he has four vacancies to fill on the board of governors. The result could be a more politicized Fed. President Donald Trump has multiple reasons as to why he should take control of the Federal Reserve. He will do so both because he can and because his broader policies argue that he should do so. The president is anti-overregulating American industry. The Fed is a leader...

    "The GDPNow model estimate for real GDP growth (seasonally adjusted annual rate) in the second quarter of 2018 is 4.5 percent on June 27, down from 4.7 percent on June 19," the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta said in its latest GDPNow report.

    The Federal Reserve hikes its benchmark short-term interest rate a quarter percentage point. The Fed says in a statement that economic growth has been "rising at a solid rate," an upgrade from "moderate" in May. The central bank points to two more hikes, which would bring the 2018 total to four increases. The Federal Reserve hiked its benchmark short-term interest rate a quarter percentage point Wednesday and indicated that two more increases are likely this year. The move pushes the funds rate target to 1.75 percent to 2 percent. The rate is closely tied to consumer debt, particularly credit cards,...

    Waking up from the nightmare that wasn’t a dream… What do you really know? We live in a world where we have trusted those with positions of power to do the right things for their people and nations. That power turned into an addiction and it hasn’t stopped and most don’t understand it. Governments, religions, territories, banks, all created and set up to keep the power in the hands of few, and the masses enslaved with the illusion of freedom. Around the world protests and cries against corruption at the highest levels rings out and yet nothing is done. In...

    Back in March 2010 I published an article titled 'Will Globalists Trigger Yet Another World War?' under the pen name Giordano Bruno describing what I felt would be the most effective triggers for a new global conflict. In that article I pointed to Syria as the primary powder keg, followed in close second by Iran and Yemen. This was written well before the Syrian civil war was engineered by establishment interests. I focused on potential false flags that could be used as a rationale by the U.S. or Israel to invade the region, thereby giving Russia and China reason...
  • Fed’s Neel Kashkari Demolishes Claims of U.S. Labor Shortage

    breitbart ^ | JOHN CARNEY
    Neel Kashkari has become the Federal Reserve’s foremost skeptic of the notion that the U.S. is experiencing a severe labor shortage. Kashkari, who is the president of the Minneapolis Fed, points to the lack of significant upward pressure on wages as evidence debunking the claims that the U.S. lacks workers. The logic is pretty simple: if the supply of labor is so limited relative to demand, the price of labor should be swiftly rising. The fact that the price of labor is not rising much suggests that perhaps labor is not in as short supply as some employers and special...
  • Sound Money Bill in Congress Would Define Dollar as Unit of Gold

    The New American ^ | 05 April 2018 | Alex Newman
    Legislation introduced in Congress recently would define the U.S. dollar as a fixed amount of gold, a move that supporters say would help stabilize the monetary system while protecting savers, workers, and investors from the ravages of inflation. If signed into law, the bill would also restrict the ability of the controversial Federal Reserve System to confiscate the American people's wealth and manipulate the economy by expanding the currency supply. President Donald Trump has publicly supported the idea of returning to a gold-backed dollar, but the prospects for the new legislation remain uncertain. The legislation, H.R. 5404, would “define the...

    Jerry Powell apparently doesn’t get it. The new head of the Federal Reserve isn’t supposed to imply that he doesn’t work for Wall Street. And he’s not supposed to say, as he did the other day in front of Congress, that “we don’t manage the stock market — we manage stable prices and maximum employment.” That’s not what Wall Street and the stock market want to hear. And that was proven by the fact that the stock market dropped sharply on Tuesday when Powell was speaking. And Powell’s comments were one of the reasons Wall Street’s pros couldn’t get a...

    Federal Reserve chair Jerome Powell moved markets on Tuesday in his first appearance before lawmakers on Capitol Hill since his confirmation. In response to questions from Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), Powell hinted that more aggressive action on raising interest rates from the Fed could be warranted this year. “At the December meeting, the median [FOMC] participant called for three rate increases in 2018,” Powell said. “Now since then, what we’ve seen is incoming data that suggests a strengthening in the economy.” Following this comment, stocks — which had been higher as Powell began speaking and answering questions — moved lower...

    I am aware of the fact that other things are happening besides the Trump-Russia investigation and the now-declassified FISA memo which sparked outrage in leftist circles. The stock market’s wild ride is giving investors high blood pressure and huge amounts of stress, yet there’s not much to say about the issue, except from what I’ve already told you back in January: “All bubbles in the economy are owned by the Federal Reserve, who is now slowly pulling the life support from the US economy by raising interest rates. ZIRP (zero interest rate policy) is now over, so is Quantitative Easing...

    Mere days ago, in what feels like a different era now, the biggest thing that people in control of money appeared to fear was complacency. Stock markets in the United States were surging, enthralled by the regulation-slashing, tax-shrinking predilections of President Trump. Every major economy in the world was expanding. The worst that could happen, the money masters averred, was that investors would be lulled into reckless investments, taking on too much risk in the belief that the dangers of the marketplace had been tamed. As it turns out, the dangers were already at work. A decade-long era of easy...
