Welcome to Roger's Economic Rant
February 2012 Economic Rant -Roger Mason
The New York Times article quoted Russian Foreign Minister Sergey V. Lavrov as saying the consequences of a military strike against Iran's nuclear facilities would be "extremely grave", triggering "a chain reaction, and I don't know where it will stop."
The escalating conflict around Iran should be contained by common effort, otherwise the promising Arab Spring will grow into a “scorching Arab Summer”. Iran is our close neighbor, just south of the Caucasus. Should anything happen to Iran, should Iran get drawn into any political or military hardships, this will be a direct threat to our national security. Dmitry Rogozin, Russia’s deputy prime minister and former envoy to NATO.
Other top Russian political and military officials have said the very same thing. They are threatening all out war just to be clear. China has said the very same thing- attack our friend and ally Iran and we will retaliate with everything we have. Iran has every right to nuclear energy. They have no nuclear weapons. Israel has hundreds of nuclear weapons. The idea of attacking Iran is prima facie insanity. We are going after Syria next and the White House just officially confirmed that. World War III looms closer every day.
Why a chart of Carnival Cruise lines? Well, they are the biggest cruise line owner of all and own too many other lines (like Princess) to name. This is to show Americans are only buying necessities now. They have given up on things they don't need- cruises, vacations, restaurants (except cheap fast food), gyms, new cars, and an endless list of things. Every day the standard of living falls. Every day we are closer to the crappy standard of living you find in Europe, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. Welcome to Third World America, the country that used to be. After 236 years it is all over folks. The punch bowl is empty, and the drunks are waking up. The drunks are not going to like the Much Greater Depression at all.
The new SOPA law means Internet censorship. Look at the following facts. This is not about Internet piracy at all…it is about censorship. The liberals and Hollywood crowd want to censor the Internet. They hate freedom of speech. The Internet is the last bastion of freedom in the world. The entire TV, radio, and print media is 98% Zionist controlled. The only way to hear the truth anyone is online.
Just the past week, a judge ruled that a 23-year-old British college student can be extradited to the U.S. for a 10-year prison sentence, all for linking to other servers that illicitly host copyrighted content
Late last year, U.S. officials shut down 150 domains without hearings or trials on grounds that they were suspected of selling goods that violate trademark law. It was done on "Cyber Monday" for a reason: It was an announcement to the digital world that government is in charge
In the spring of last year, the FBI arbitrarily shut down every online poker domain they could find and seized the bank accounts of some of the largest and smartest people who play online poker -- and all of this happened before the recent announcement that online poker is being re-legalized
Earlier in the year, the Department of Homeland Security seized 84,000 domains and put up an announcement that each was trafficking in child porn. Problem: It was all a mistake. Not one was actually guilty. To date, there has been no explanation of how this could have happened
In 2010, the feds seized some 73,000 domains for the crime of linking to content that was said to be distributed illegally in violation of copyright.
NEWSFLASH- Italy has just imposed totalitarian capital controls. No money goes out of the country. Bank and credit card transactions are recorded and given to the state. You will see more of this in Europe every week. Then you will see it here in America. This is why you have to put 100% of your savings into physical silver and hold it yourself. You have to be outside of the banking system. Keep a minimal amount of money in your checking account to pay bills. Only silver and gold are real money, and have been real money for 5,000 years now. Nothing else is real money. You can always trade silver and gold for the goods you need. You can always sell silver and gold six days a week at any coin shop if you need green toilet paper to pay for groceries or gas. Every currency in the world is toilet paper.
George Soros really let it slip the other day when he said, “There really isn’t any real difference between Obama and Romney”. He came out and said it…we have a one party system in America, the Republicrats. It doesn’t matter who wins this year; it’s all the same one party system with the puppet masters behind the curtain. George and his friends are so arrogant and confident now they just tell you what they're doing. They don't care.
We now have 7 trillion useless eaters on this planet. We should have about a half trillion. The One Worlders are right that 95% of the population should be eliminated. The twelve largest cities in the world are Los Angeles 13 million, Buenos Aires 13 million, Karachi (Pakistan) 13 million. Dhaka (Bangladesh) 15 million, Calcutta 16 million, Shanghai 17 million, NYC 19 million, Mexico City 19 million, Bombay 20 million, Sao Paulo 20 million, Delhi 22 million, and Tokyo an amazing 37 million. Well over 225 million people just in 12 cities. Did you know Macau has 48,000 people per square mile? That is not a misprint. Singapore has 18,513, Hong Kong 16,444, India 953, Japan 873, China 363, U.S. 83, New Zealand 41, Russia 21, Canada 9, Iceland 8, and Australia 8.
The entire planet has gone insane. How are we going to get rid of 6.5 billion people? Nuclear war leaves the planet uninhabitable. Smallpox sounds like a good idea. Military bioengineered diseases are very effective. Mass vaccinations are already doing that. The One Worlders had an answer years ago and they aren’t telling. They’re going to use it, too. Bill Gates and others have admitted this publicly.
This cartoon came directly from an Israeli newspaper. In Israel you see cartoons like this everyday. Here is Netanyahu "schooling" his sock puppet Obama as to what to do and how to do it. Notice Obama is sitting in a student desk being educated by his teacher Netanyahu. Notice clearly the word “schooled”. Obama is a little child being told what to do. This is their attitude and this is the reality. The tail wags the dog.
"Every time we do something you tell me America will do this and will do that . . . I want to tell you something very clear: Don't worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it." (Israeli Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon, October 3, 2001, to Shimon Peres, as reported on Kol Yisrael radio). Yes, he really said that. Yes, he really meant it. He said it on public radio over ten years ago, and it is more true today than ever. Israel runs Congress from top to bottom. The own the media outright. They run it all.
The fact Gingrich won the South Carolina primary and Ron Paul came in last is most worrisome. In ways Gingrich is even worse than Obama. Obama has an IQ of 100 and can’t even speak without a teleprompter. Gingrich is highly intelligent and articulate, which makes him far more dangerous. He actually admitted a priority is a manned space station on the moon. That’s psychosis, pure and simple. Gingrich is a disease and the Democrats know there is no way in Hell he can be elected president. They WANT him to win the nomination. Romney is the only one who can possibly win. Support Ron Paul on principle. It is always important to do the right thing. Don’t vote for the Lesser of Two Evils. Do the right thing and support Ron Paul. Here is a photo below of Newt on his way to weekly worship. You can see where his loyalties lie, and they aren't to America.
Thanks a**hole for doing in 3 years what it took all the other presidents 219 years to do. This is simply incomprehensible. In three years Obama spent $6.5 trillion. All the other presidents from Washington to Bush "only" spent $6.3 trillion. The entire GNP is only $14 trillion. Remember the unfunded liabilities (the REAL national debt) is a half million dollars for every man, woman and child in America. You must remember this, so you will understand the situation is completely hopeless. We are going to see the worst depression the world has ever seen. We cannot comprehend every American owing $500,000 in debt. The media tells you the national debt is a tenth of what it really is. Just like they tell you unemployment is 9%, when it's really 22%.
Look what happened after 1970. Inflation has taken over our lives. Remember inflation is a secret, hidden tax that destroys you and destroys the economy. Inflation only results from printing unbacked "money". There is no other cause. Hyperinflation will get worse, and the only way to protect yourself is 100% investing in silver you hold personally.
Do you realize how America has changed in the last 50 years? In 1960 the largest U.S. employers were GM (595,000 employees), Bell Telephone, Ford, GE, U.S. Steel (defunct), Sears Roebuck, A&P Supermarkets, Esso gasoline, Bethlehem Steel (defunct), ITT (International Telephone and Telegraph), Westinghouse, General Dynamics, Chrysler, Sperry Rand, and International Harvester. This has all been replaced by Walmart (2,100,000 employees!), Kelly Employment Services(!?!), IBM, UPS, McDonalds, Yum Brands, Target, Kroger Supermarkets, Hewlett-Packard, Home Depot, Sears Holdings (much different than Sears Roebuck), PepsiCo (where did Coca Cola go?), Bank of America (bankrupt), GE, and CVS Pharmacy. America use to manufacture, make things, create goods, grow crops. No more. We're a mere consumer country buying things we don't need with money we don't have. Where will the money come from now? It won't! We're not just broke; every man, woman, child and infant owe a half million dollars in debt. That's right, the real national debt is over 170 trillion dollars. To put that in perspective the entire GNP is only about $14 trillion.
For years we've been telling you Hillary is dying of cancer but won't admit it. Look at her face at 65 after a major face lift (secretly and denied) several years ago. Her legs are so hideous and swollen she wears pant suits everywhere. She just formally announced she is completely and totally leaving politics in 11 months. Why would a 65 year old sociopath career politician do something like that? Because she got religion? Right. She's dying, but far too late. Her evil is done with her evil husband Bill. Oriental facial diagnosis also confirms all this. No one else in the world is telling you this. Time will prove it.
The "public" (i.e. government) schools are purposely designed to make your children stupid. Their only purpose is to indoctrinate and brainwash children to be good government slaves and unthinking, clueless, brain dead little sheeple. If you have children put them in a private or parochial school. Not that they are much better. If you can't afford to educate them without government brainwashing, then don't have any! The government ("public") school system is the main means of creating sheeple. They are just taxpayer funded indoctrination prisons, no different than the ones in Cuba, North Korea, China, and Russia.
Look at the last 12 years under Bush and Obama. This is even more true for silver. The dollar goes to Hell and gold and silver go to the moon. You will see this continue as precious metals go to the moon and the dollar goes to Hell. Be 100% invested in silver bullion you hold yourself. No paper silver, no silver mines, no silver storage. Yes, Central Fund of Canada (CEF) and Sprott Silver (PSLV) are honest, but nothing compares to holding your own bullion. Paper is paper.
What Obama has done to this country in a mere three years is all PURPOSEFUL. He and his Marist minions hate America, and hate "capitalism". Unemployment is really 22%, poverty and welfare programs are up, debt is staggering, home prices will keep collapsing for year, inflation has taken over completely. None of the above can be denied. This is who Americans freely voted for in 2008 after being brainwashed by the media. The media chooses the elections. The media is just the government information bureau. America deserves everything it gets. The Much Greater Depression started years ago and is manifesting more every single day. Look carefully at the chart below to see the real damage done in a mere three years. If we get four more years of Obama we'll all be starving in the street. Except people who own silver of course.
Liberals want to cure the worlds problems with YOUR money. Liberals want to do the right thing with someone else’s money. Did you know Barack and Michele gave a mere 1% to charity? All those poor, hungry black inner city children and he gave 1%? Did you know Joe Biden gave all of $370. Romney, a Mormon, is criticized for being successful. What’s wrong with success? He gave a full 15% to charity and always does. Ron Paul gives generously to charity and always has. Newt and his wife couldn’t even manage 3% to charity. He’s anything but a conservative. Your poor old author has a charitable trust and we give away many more times than we spend. Most successful people give generously to the charities they believe in.
Let’s talk about silver. Silver has gone up straight for almost six weeks now with no correction at all. This is called a “weak market” and will correct. In February silver is going to start taking off. 2012 is going to be great for us. Buy all the silver bullion you can and hold it in your own hot little hands. No paper silver. All paper is going to be worth paper. No storage programs. Just bullion you hold personally. No gold. Sell your IRA or 401k, take the penalty and put the money into silver. The government is going to seize your retirement, your life savings and give you a worthless treasury security. Starve in the street with your dumbassed friends if you don't. The right time to buy silver is when you have money in your pocket. After a February correction expect silver and gold to take off for the moon in 2012. Right, nothing much happened in 2011, but 2012 is going to more than make up for this. All currencies on earth are toilet paper. None of them are backed with anything but mass delusion. Ft. Knox was empty 50 years ago and hasn’t been audited since then. That’s a fact- Ft. Knox must have a complete audit every 10 years and hasn’t had one in 50. The COMEX is empty and has no silver. It is self audited. When people find out the COMEX is empty silver is going to go ballistic. The commercials are back to 25,000 net short contracts. This is over $4 billion dollars in silver. Why are the Big Banks short $4 billion COMEX contracts in silver? It makes no sense. It is an insane position.
INVESTORS ONLY BUY ABOUT $3 BILLION OF SILVER EACH YEAR.
So, they are short more than investors buy. This makes no sense at all- except of course to manipulate the price of silver down. The Big Banks are also net short almost 200,000 COMEX contracts in gold. This is an incredible $34 billion dollars. This is also an insane position that makes no sense at all. Except, again, to manipulate the price down. This is where the price manipulation comes from, but it is going to end soon. Why? The world is running out of physical silver and gold. That is the reason. Running out of phsyical metals is our savior.
The car companies cannot give away those useless electric cars. Electric cars are really just COAL cars. 70% of our electricity comes from coal. We have 1,000 years of known coal reserves right here in America. If just 10% of car owners bought an electric car today the electrical generators would brown out in the morning. We could not take that overload. They don’t work! The battery weights 437 pounds (Chevy Volt) and needs to be replaced every five years at a cost of $8,000. $8,000 every five years folks. The batteries are an ecological nightmare, and can’t be disposed of. You are far better off using gasoline or natural gas.
Let’s go over energy again. Solar doesn’t work. There is no wattage in sunlight. No one ever discusses the batteries you need. Windmills have failed everywhere they were tried. Again, no one discusses the batteries you need. Biofuels don’t work, and cost more to make than you get back. They are subsidized with your tax money. Corn should be used to feed hungry people. We have 1,000 years of coal reserves. You can make $2 a gallon gasoline, jet, and truck fuel from coal with the SASOL process today. The government won’t allow one SASOL plant. The Germans developed the SASOL process over 70 years ago. It has been radically improved since then. We have 100 years of known natural gas. Canada has an almost infinite supply they will gladly sell us. We have 100 years of known oil reserves. Within 100 years we will certainly figure something else out like cold fusion, fuel cells, hydrogen from water, and all the rest. There is no energy shortage, no “peak oil” or anything of the kind. The whole problem comes down to government interference in the free market.
What is going on with Prison Planet/Info Wars? Disinformation agent Alex Jones is suddenly telling some dangerous things. Maybe (unlike Hillary) he did get religion and realize he did have a conscience.
See you in two weeks. Buy everything you need and store it. Store gasoline, toilet paper,
paper towels, brown rice, dried beans, some canned goods, soap, and everything else you use on a daily basis. This is just good common sense to be prepared. The Boy Scouts have been saying that for over 100 years. Be prepared. This is just good practice. We do not know exactly what the future will bring and when. You can see the future basically if you just take a good hard look at today. Pay attention! Everything is going wrong, and nothing is going right.
