They would rather protect the big industries compared to all of us regular people! In fact, the truth of the matter is, they could not care less if all of us lose our money through banks, they care if the bankers lose money.
The Fed does not want the banks who got emergency loans released. They feel it would be a determent to the economy and those banks. A judge had ruled they had to release the information by Aug. 31st, due to a lawsuit filed by Bloomberg.
Reading between the lines, the Fed is worried, all of us regular folks, might just find out the truth of the situation banks are in and decide we would like to keep our own money, instead of letting the banks have it (in case of bank holidays).
The point is, they will go to all lengths to hide the truth from the American public.

Fed urges judge not to enforce order pending appeal
* Banks say disclosure could cause loss of confidence
By Jonathan Stempel
NEW YORK, Aug 27 (Reuters) - The U.S. Federal Reserve asked a federal judge not to enforce her order that it reveal the names of the banks that have participated in its emergency lending programs and the sums they received, saying such disclosure would threaten the companies and the economy.
The central bank filed its request on Wednesday, two days after Chief Judge Loretta Preska of the U.S. District Court in Manhattan ruled in favor of Bloomberg News, which had sought information under the federal Freedom of Information Act.
Preska said the Fed failed to show that revealing the names would stigmatize the banks and result in "imminent competitive harm." The Fed asked the judge not to require disclosure while it readies an appeal.
"Immediate release of these documents will cause irreparable harm to these institutions and to the board's ability to effectively manage the current, and any future, financial crisis," the central bank argued.
It added that the public interest favors a delay, citing a potential for "significant harms that could befall not only private companies, but the economy as a whole" if the information were disclosed.
Underlying this case and a similar one involving News Corp's (NWSA.O) Fox News Network LLC is a question of how much the public has a right to know about how the government is bailing out a financial system in a crisis.
They are questioning the Public having the Right to know how much of a financial crisis we are in!! Outrageous! In other words, the Fed is saying - "we will use the Public's money and put them in debt all we want, but we won't let them know where we are using it"!
I hope that the Judge will keep the order of Aug. 31st disclosure of the Federal Reserve - a count down of 3 days. Will we see the list?
I will keep my eyes out for it.

Well, the Long Awaited FDIC 2nd Quarter Report, Finally came out today - Media is on it - But not honest
What they are using though, is the FDIC amount on hand from June 30th - in their reporting. In other words they are saying the FDIC has X amount of billions of dollars, using how much was in the fund from June. They are NOT being honest and saying the FDIC is underwater at about 5 Billion right now. The media is not mentioning the banks that have been taken over since June 30th, which has been quite a few.
Also, when you hear the number of banks that have been taken over this year (81) and the media says it is not as bad, as the depression and the 80's. They are again Not being honest, they are not saying how many branches and actual locations are involved. Care to take a guess?
Try 3000+ branches of banks, that have actually been taken over by the FDIC this year. That is a lot different than the 81, the media likes to mention.
When people tell me, they won't believe something, until MSM reports on it, I want to say "I will never believe, anything the MSM says - as they are run by the PTB". They have their own agenda and part of that agenda is protecting the government and the PTB, not the people. They are reporting dishonestly to the public.
The fact is, the FDIC does not nearly have enough money to cover what could amount to Trillions of dollars in bank failures.
Link to one article:
A total of 416 banks with combined assets of $299.8 billion failed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.’s grading system for asset quality, liquidity and earnings, the most since June 1994, the Washington-based FDIC said in a report today. Regulators didn’t identify companies deemed “problem” banks.
The FDIC insures deposits at 8,195 institutions with $13.3 trillion in assets. The agency is a state-bank regulator that insures bank customer deposits, helps find buyers for failing banks and liquidates lenders that have collapsed.
Did you get that part about 13.3 Trillion dollars?
Oh, I turned on the news (which I don't do anymore) to see what they were saying about the FDIC. I was completely Flabbergasted - when a CNN reporter said "The stock market, did well today, due to the good financial news out". I thought to myself... wow, they really do have people fooled.
Are you listening to those corporations, who benefit from not getting the complete truth to you?
As I see it, they have held off the flood gates very well and have covered the public's eyes to what is really happening here in the U.S.. The problem is, people around the rest of the world, knows what is really going on.
The Fed is buying the U.S. T-bills, in a round about way and not disclosing it.
Information little by little is leaking out about that. What is also happening, is information about how the rest of the world feels about the dollar is starting to see the light of day also in the American press.
link to Wall Street Journal - The rest of the World questions the Dollar
Investors and economists have long harbored concerns about the dollar's decline, especially in the beginning of this decade as the federal government and consumers ran up their debtloads to finance everything from foreign wars to flat-screen TVs. Last fall's financial crash suggested that such fears may be overblown: As markets plunged in the wake of the collapse of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc., investors scrambled to stash their cash in U.S. Treasury bills, perceiving them to be the safest investments. That boosted the value of the U.S. dollar against many of its major counterparts.
Now, though, major investors like Berkshire Hathaway Inc. Chairman Warren Buffett and bond investment firm Pimco fear the government's fiscal and monetary stimulus programs could end up fueling inflation in coming years and hammering the dollar. Higher inflation eats up the returns of bond investments that provide a fixed interest income, making them less attractive to investors. Less demand for U.S. bonds could mean a weaker dollar.
We already know the bonds are not selling well and the Fed is actually buying them, through Central Banks. They are making deals of trades, thus the printing presses are running overtime to print the money up to buy the bonds.
The game can only go on, so much longer. Also, the Shorting game of metals, seems to be getting a little weaker now. The players were profitting over $200 per ounce with their shorts at the end of last year and the beginning of this year. They are now only making around a $80 profit per ounce now. There are still tremendous amounts of shorts against the metals, but the longs are starting to come up stronger.
I would bet, it will be sooner than later, people start getting worried again about the economy and the banking situation, even though the media is not fully disclosing the truth.
Games can only go on for so long, until everyone starts realizing there is a game being played.
Here are my predictions:
The market is going to start a Free fall in about 2 weeks
Gold is probably about at it's lowest point it will ever be again.
(When the game of shorts is up on the metals, they will skyrocket, when people realize too late, they need them to protect themselves 'value of dollar, at this point' - they won't be available)
I will say once again, "If you have not purchased metals to protect yourself, than you are not paying attention to what is Really happening".
Buy Metals (my opinion - Silver is better - actually more rare than gold, used for more things and will have a bigger percentage of increase, thus more money will be made over all).

Michael Jackson Still headlines - 2 months later? Not Rhode Island - who is shutting down Government for 12 days? Jeez!!
Look, sorry he died, but can we Get Over It, Now? Really, what a blessing his death was for the MSM, this way, they can keep it on the headlines and not put Real News up.
Like the Real News of Rhode Island shutting down it's government for 12 days! Now, that is news which has a negative actual impact on people!
Link to article: http://apnews.myway.com/article/20090825/D9A9IKMG1.html
I had always believed Rhode Island was a very wealthy state, I would not have expected they would be one of the first states to shut down it's government for a duration of time.
Birmingham, Alabama has cut it's government by 1/3 and even shut down a prison, California is issuing IOUs instead of money to the people.
The question I have for people is this: Do you listen to the MSM that "Good times are here and just around the corner, the tough times are over"? Or do you look at the Real news, the MSM does not tell you, as what state governments are shutting down? In other words, the real news and facts are "the tough times are just beginning".
The truth is hard to accept, but it won't be as tough, for those who are prepared mentally and physically, for what is coming down the line. It is all the others who only listen to MSM (about Michael Jackson) who will be caught like a deer in headlights. They will have no clue and will be shocked, when their own state government closes for a few days.
Also, if governments can close, don't you think banks will too at some point?
Sunday, August 23, 2009
Will this become public on MSM - I can't imagine it will, because people will then worry about their money in the banks. If it does have a large public awareness and people want their money, will the banks begin "holidays"?
But now you know, what are you going to do to protect yourself?
Wednesday, August 19, 2009
I thought it would be a good idea to link it here and make people aware of what banks may be in trouble.
I warn you, it is a very long list!
Considering not that many people have contracted the flu and the mortality rate is very low for it, the banks are going to use it as an excuse to close business. How perfect for them.
I will bet the general public will accept this too, because the media will relay, "Banks had to close for the benefit of the public, strongly".
I find this completely amazing, did the banks in Asia close a few years back with the bird flu? No, not from everything I have read.
The FDIC comes out next week with their 2nd quarter report - the report is not going to be good. Will banks try and have a holiday right afterwards, though the swine flu has not hit hard?
Link to Tennessee government's site with letter to banks:
TO: All Tennessee State Chartered Banks
SUBJECT: Closing of Bank Offices - TCA §45-2-603 and §45-2-604
DATE: August 5, 2009
This bulletin is intended to address specifically the issue of suspending bank office activity in response to possible H1N1 (swine flu) outbreaks and more generally to emergency powers of banks in response to disasters. Additionally, this bulletin provides certain guidance should a Tennessee state bank close certain offices under the authority of TCA §45-2-603 and §45-2-604 in the discretion of its directorate and management.
Banks organized under the laws of the State of Tennessee may, at their discretion, temporarily close offices or operations in areas affected by an emergency resulting from fire, act of God, attack by a foreign nation, riot, insurrection, civil disorder or any similar disaster without prior approval of the commissioner in accordance with TCA §45-2-603 and §45-2-604.
The Department of Financial Institutions considers bank determinations that H1N1 outbreaks pose legitimate health risks to the general public or significantly impacts the ability of a banking institution to maintain an appropriate level of personnel on site to meet customer needs to be included among any “similar disaster” as referenced in TCA §45-2-603. Other events may also be included among any similar disaster, and the directorate and executive management are encouraged to use reasonable discretion in applying TCA §45-2-603 and §45-2-604. However, the safety of institution personnel and local citizens are of paramount importance when evaluating the appropriateness of closing offices.
We encourage institutions to carefully monitor and consider any guidance issued by state and federal government authorities regarding such events. While TCA §45-2-603 and §45-2-604 do not require the Department’s prior approval for office closings in certain events, we do encourage institutions to notify both the Department as well as their primary federal regulator in as timely a manner as reasonably possible in the event of such a closing. Additionally, institutions should make a reasonable effort, in consideration of the public safety, to notify and accommodate customers.
This bulletin shall serve as notice that no specific prior approval from the Department is required for Tennessee state-chartered banks to be closed more than two consecutive business days should a Tennessee state-chartered bank, in its discretion, determine it is necessary to temporarily close the bank or an office of the bank in accordance with TCA §45-2-603 and §45-2-604, pursuant to an H1N1 outbreak or similar disaster.
Banks should be advised; however, that if the Federal Reserve is open that the Federal Reserve may continue to present cash items to banks even if a particular bank has exercised its discretion to close the bank or one of its offices in accordance with TCA §45-2-603 and §45-2-604. Please contact your respective Federal Reserve branch for further guidance.
Questions regarding this Bulletin should be addressed to Tod K. Trulove, Assistant Commissioner – Bank Division, at 615/741-6013 or Tina G. Miller, General Counsel, at 615/532-1030.
I sincerely hope, people are not fooled by this, in my opinion, people should try and get the majority of their money out of the banks now, before next week's FDIC report.
I read an article yesterday (not inserting it - due to it not being validated yet) that banks will start limiting the amount of money people can get out of their account. The information said:
All account access was to be limited by the Bank and that any withdrawls, checks, debit cards, or access of credit lines, and IRA's could total no more than $500.00 per one or a combination of accounts every 7 business days until these limitations were lifted by Federal Authorities.
2. All lock boxes were to be sealed and access to contents disallowed by regulations imposed by Executive Order, the IRS, FDIC, and the Federal Reserve Bank until further notice.
Again this has not been validated - so it may just be a rumour, until I find positive validation - I am on the fence with this. Though I did positively validate the Tennessee Government letter regarding bank closures.
All I can say, in these days and times, everyone needs to look out for themselves and do what they need to do to protect themselves.
Everything is not as wonderful as the media makes it out to be.
Yes, the Webbot does say, bank holidays are suppose to start next month.
If you have information on any other state governments sending letters to the banks, giving them the OK to close for Swine flu, please feel free to send me the link at email@example.com

UPDATED - Swine Flu - Vaccines - Real Information and Real Story (1976 vaccines) told to me Yesterday
The Swine Flu vaccines, this is a Big subject with lots of information compiled. Also someone (wants to remain unnamed) visited me and told me their story, yesterday.
First, we have been hearing the hype from the media about the Swine Flu and how bad it is going to be. In fact, they have been hyping it so much, I guess they are hoping people will be clamoring for the vaccines. There is also a lot of information about how the governments of the world will be making the vaccines mandatory.
The people who have contracted it and have died compared to the hype over it, does not match. Yes, there is a Swine flu (manufactured?) with so many different varieties of flu in it, the 1918 flu, swine flu, bird flu, a new human flu, how is it possible all of those combined together naturally?
Many are aware (who read their news on the internet), Baxter sent out a vaccine with the live bird flu virus a few months ago to 18 countries, The only reason it was caught was because the Canada tested it.
link to article about it: http://www.naturalnews.com/025760.html
Now for a lot more background on vaccines:
There is no vaccine known to the public for this particular virus. There are vaccines for related viruses thought to possibly be effective, but this is unreliable information. In response to the problems of the 1976 Swine Flu vaccine which caused neurological damage in patients as well as the more recent Baxter scandal in which live H5N1 virus was mixed in with vaccine materials, the government of Sweden has advised their population NOT to obtain vaccinations at this time. As was demonstrated in the 1976 case, the decision to force vaccines on the public are often made more from a commercial for-profit concern than what is actually best for the population.
In the 1976 Swine Flu outbreak, the vaccine killed fifty times as many people as the flu did!
At this time it is being claimed that primary infection is skin-to-skin contact, so wash your hands often with a good bacteriological soap. Avoid touching other people. While risk of direct transfer by air is low, according to CDC, the reality is that coughs and sneezes can produce aerosolized secretions in which the virus is surrounded by liquids and able to survive for prolonged periods of time outside the body. If this virus has a lipid coating, that time will be longer.
Disinfection of household surfaces can be accomplished with a dilute (10%) solution of chlorine bleach and water will kill the virus. So will strong light, especially ultra-violet light.
Given the similarity between the avian flu component of this new virus and the 1918 Spanish flu, a possible precaution to take is common household cinnamon from the spice rack. During the 1918 outbreak it was noticed that people who worked at a cinnamon processing factory did not catch the disease. Cinnamon in high doses can be toxic, but a gram a day for adults seems like a reasonable dose.
Here are some of the relevant facts.
Back in 2004, we were being propagandized that Bird Flu was the next pandemic.
CDC was talking about recombinant viruses back in 2005.
Gene studies showed that so-called Bird Flu appeared to be similar to the 1918 Spanish Flu. Other studies showed it was almost identical!
Which is rather nerve-wracking because in 2005 it was admitted that scientists were intentionally recreating the 1918 Spanish Flu virus!
But the predicted pandemic didn't happen because Bird Flu isn't that contagious. It needed to be blended with a more infectious form of flu, like swine flu (Used as a bio-weapon by the CIA against Cuba), to became a real slate-wiper!
In 2006, it was reported that scientists were intentionally creating bird flu and swine flu hybrids in the labs!
Which leads to asking how it is that this new flu epidemic explodes into view right after Fort Detrick admits that some of the nasty little beasties they have been working on went missing!
Some links to info on ingredients of vaccines: http://www.vaclib.org/basic/fluindex.htm
In general, children are also considered to be in a priority group for getting swine flu vaccine and are also considered to be in the first tiers of vaccination depending on their risk for complications:
Infants & toddlers 6 to 35 mo old, pregnant women - Tier 1
Household contacts of infants less than 6 mo - Tier 2
Children 3 to 18 yrs with high risk conditions - Tier 2
Children 3 to 18 yrs without high risk conditions - Tier 2 (Moderate Pandemic)
Children 3 to 18 yrs without high risk conditions - Tier 3 (Severe and Less Severe Pandemic)
To get the first three tiers of people vaccinated is estimated to require about 104 million doses of swine flu vaccine.
1976 Swine Flu Vaccine
Although it is true that we don't currently have a swine flu vaccine, there once was a swine flu vaccine that was made to target the swine flu H1N1 strain that was found at Fort Dix, New Jersey. Because of fears that this swine flu strain was similar to the flu strain that caused the 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic, a vaccination program immunized more than 40 million people in the United States between October 1976 to December 1976.
The immunization program was stopped early because the swine flu pandemic didn't occur, and the swine flu vaccine was thought to cause many side effects, including Guillain-Barre syndrome.
How many cases of Guillain-Barre syndrome were there? About 40, or 1 per million people vaccinated. Even that was considered too high though in light of the fact that there didn't seem to be any cases of swine flu that season.
Swine Flu Vaccine Timeline
June 4 - the CDC has provided a candidate vaccine virus to several laboratories and manufacturers so that they can produce pilot lots of swine flu vaccines that can be tested to make sure they are safe and effective.
June 12 - Novartis, a Swiss drug maker, which makes the Fluvirin flu vaccine for seasonal flu, has announced that they have produced their first batch of swine flu vaccine. This is still an experimental vaccine though, that needs to complete clinical trials to make sure it is safe and effective before it can be further produced for everyone to use.
June 26 - although 115 million doses of seasonal flu vaccine is usually used each year, it is estimated that up to 600 million doses of swine flu (H1N1) vaccine may be needed in the fall, since most people will need two doses. Only about 60 million doses will likely be ready by September though.
July 9 - the US government will spend about $7.5 billion if a swine flu vaccination program is thought to be necessary in the fall, in addition to the billion dollars already spent on bulk ingredients for the swine flu vaccines being developed.
from link above:
"Department of Homeland Security officials are declaring that any disease outbreak is a matter of homeland security. Department of Defense officials are defining public demonstrations as 'low level terrorism.' In some states ... doctors have persuaded legislators to quickly pass pandemic influenza legislation that will allow state officials to enter homes and businesses without the approval of occupants; to investigate and quarantine individuals without their consent; to require licensed health care providers to give citizens vaccines and to ban the free assembly of citizens in the state." -- Barbara Loe Fisher, President of the National Vaccine Information Center, 6/18/09
The swine flu has turned out to be little more dangerous than the average flu. The majority of those who have died of swine flu have had other health complications which played a decisive role in mortality. Earlier articles at the beginning of the outbreak described the unbridled fear-mongering taking place, as happened previously with the avian flu.
Yet the pandemic of fear continues as plans are well underway for a massive vaccination of the public with a vaccine that has only recently been developed and has undergone very limited testing for possible severe side effects.
According to the CDC, approximately 36,000 people die each year in the U.S. from the regular flu. That averages to about 100 people a day. The total number of confirmed mortalities in the U.S. from the swine flu since the virus was identified in March is less than 200, less than the number of people who die in two days from the regular flu. Yet don't be surprised if you soon start to see propaganda for mandatory vaccination, starting with our children. Mandatory vaccines bring billions of dollars to big pharma and more control for politicians.
Plans have been made and laws have already been passed to restrict constitutional rights during a pandemic. And in spite of the low severity of the swine flu, a pandemic of the highest level has already been declared by the WHO. At worse, these new laws can be used declare martial law and suspend constitutional rights. At best, many will likely be injured or die from side effects of the vaccine, like during the swine flu pandemic in 1976, in which a national emergency was declared even though only one person died of the flu. Dozens died that year as a direct result of the massive government vaccination program against the greatly feared flu.
Vaccinated Children Don’t Have Natural Antibodies
But will health officials allow our children and grandchildren to get those same kind of natural protective antibodies to type A and B influenza, including this new swine flu? It doesn’t look like it. First, doctors in America have been insisting for the past few years that every child from six months old to age 18 must get an annual flu shot.  Second, there are now calls by U.S. health officials to give American children the first doses of experimental swine flu vaccines in the school setting. 
Link to transcript of 60 minutes interview about 1976 vaccine and effects - from 1979
There is an article Today - About a leaked letter, regarding the vaccines and nerve disease.
Please read the above article - but the ratio of people being affected as reported in the above article is Much lower than 1 to 80,000. Also - yesterday, I got a visit from someone (wants to remain unnamed).
But this person, said in 1976, they got the vaccine (as mentioned in the article - but I don't believe the article has the true amount of people affected by it - due to this person's story). 30 people from this person's office went together to get the shot. 2 of the 30 had Very bad reactions - including this person, who gave me their story.
This person, was in bed for two weeks, they were in agony, where even the sheets hurt on their toes, their scalp/hair hurt to even lightly touch it. For two weeks the pain radiated from one place to another on their body. The person thought they were going mad, with the agony and the pain. Then for one year, the person had paralysis in their muscles/legs, they could not walk upstairs, due to the muscles not working correctly. They had a very hard time just walking or doing anything, besides weakness overall. They eventually recovered, but it took over one years time. The reason why I say the amount of people affected in the article has to be higher than 1 in 80,000 (unreported people), is because if 2 of 30 people who got vaccinated together were affected, then the reality is the ratio is possibly 1 in 15 people. This person who told me their story also feels people who were affected, were not being reported by doctors.
There is much more information about the vaccines, with various angles. Also there is an article saying WHO wants the vaccines to be mandatory for all people.
I can say - I will NOT get a vaccine (besides - I am allergic to eggs and mercury etc.) ;) I will get a doctors note stating that fact. So, I can not be forced to take a vaccine - if I am allergic to the ingredients. My family and friends will hopefully be allergic to all the ingredients also. Are you allergic to the ingredients in the vaccines? If so, get a doctors note, stating that.
Also, all the information I have been reading, your best defense will be Vitamin D and Vitamin C.
Start taking those now and build up your defenses.
NOTE to add: I compiled the above information from various sources - not all of it is my own original writing, but some of it is information I had been sending others in emails, through cut and pasting. I do not have the individual links to some of the information provided. I did write a good bit of it, but not all.
I will be updating this post as more information comes out.
UPDATED AUG 18 4:24PM EST -
The Washington Post has confirmed the vaccines will include Thimerosal.
From the article at this link: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/07/29/AR2009072903607_2.html?sid=ST2009072903827
Some of the vaccine will be stored in multi-dose vials containing thimerosal, an antibacterial additive that contains mercury. But there will also be single-dose syringes without thimerosal, a substance that some assert is harmful to children.
Among the many unanswered questions is whether two doses will be necessary to provide full protection, how close in time two shots can be given and how big the dose will be. Vaccination programs may start before the answers are known.
Clinical trials in which the prototype vaccine will be tested in hundreds of children and adults are just beginning. Data on the effectiveness of one shot will be available in mid-September; two shots, in late September.
They are testing this on kids - Mercury has been shown to cause autism, mercury is a known neurotoxin - no one should allow their child to get this vaccine!
Link to article how it is confirmed - Thimerosal causes Autism
The Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health, Part A: Current Issues, an authoritative journal featuring original toxicological research, has published, "A Case Series of Children with Apparent Mercury Toxic Encephalopathies Manifesting with Clinical Symptoms of Regressive Autistic Disorders," by Geier and Geier (2007).
This new study leaves little doubt there is a direct causal link between mercury exposure from Thimerosal-preserved biological products (vaccines and Rho(D) products) and mercury poisoning diagnosed as an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Thimerosal (49.55% mercury by weight) is a highly toxic mercury compound used as a preservative in some OTC and prescription drugs, including most flu shots given to pregnant women, infants, children, adults, and the elderly.
Please be aware of everything, before taking a vaccine for a flu that is being hyped out of proportion by the media and the governments to how many have actually died from it.
UPDATE AUG 19 - An article out today - One third of nurses will refuse the Swine Flu vaccine due to them feeling it is not safe to take.
link to article: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-1207270/A-nurses-refuse-swine-flu-jab.html#ixzz0OXlgkOE6
Of 1,500 readers, 30 per cent would not say yes to the
vaccine, while 33 per cent said maybe. Just 37 per cent said they would
definitely have the jab.
Of those who said they would refuse the jab, 60 per cent said their
main reason was concern about the safety of the vaccine.
A further 31 per cent said they did not consider the risks to their
health from swine flu to be great enough, while 9 per cent thought they would
not be able to take time off work to get immunised. Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-1207270/A-nurses-refuse-swine-flu-jab.html#ixzz0OejLfbE6

I will watch it carefully. It looks like Ana is being followed quickly by Bill. Both may hit PR or go to the north. If to the north the seismic effects would be muted and might even cause the current swarm to stop. The reason for this is the low pressures associated with the storm(s) will tend to allow the Atlantic seafloor to rise (because it is not being pushed down as much by the air). This would tend to lock the subduction zone and keep earthquakes from occurring. If the storm goes to the south the opposite could occur opening a possibility for a strong earthquake in the region. Lowell Whiteside PhD
UPDATE AUG 15TH 11:20PM EST - Latest Map of Puerto Rico
Another UPDATE AUG 15 - 2:02 PM EST
It Looks like Ana (a Tropical Storm right now) is going to go directly over Puerto Rico - expected there on Tuesday. This is what Lowell has said, could be the catalyst to a very large quake happening on the Trench.
Great site for tracking it: http://www.stormpulse.com/
UPDATE - AUG 15 - 5:56 AM EST There were over 25 more Earthquakes since I posted about Puerto Rico yesterday morning - now 102 Earthquakes show on the map.
Puerto Rico's Trench has gotten Very Active - in fact as of this moment there have been 76 quakes in one weeks time. They are getting larger too - high 3+ magnitudes and now High 4+ magnitudes are occurring. Earthquake experts have expectations of a Very Large quake happening there in the near future - where a possible Tsunami would ensue with it.
List of quakes on this map: from site: http://earthquake.usgs.gov/eqcenter/recenteqsus/Maps/PR10/13.23.-71.-61_eqs.php
When the Puerto Rico Trench has had Large quakes in the past, Tsunami's have occurred with them.
I happen to know many people down there, as I used to live in the Virgin Islands and I would go to Puerto Rico on business many times a year. If you know people there, please make them aware of the quakes that are occurring and have them prepare emergency packs for them and their families. Hopefully they have some prepared already, due to Hurricanes possibly hitting. Awareness and preparation for any event is the key to surviving!
A wound up radio - food for days along with water - besides a head for the hills bag. Does that sound extreme in preparations? To me - No - being prepared is smart - especially when there is a history of Huge Quakes there causing Tsunamis. Also Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands are overdue for a Large Quake.
Information from http://www.quakecentralforecasting.com/lowellsblog.html
I get his daily emails of quake forecasting - his email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
You can sign up for Free Daily Quake forecast - he discusses all aspects of quakes - Excellent information!
Here is a part of his email from today:
EARTHQUAKE SUMMARY FOR AUGUST 13, 2009
A second earthquake of M 4.7-4.9 hit in the region of Puerto Rico today following a similar event yesterday. NEIC reported this earthquake was felt within about 150 km of the epicenter with intensity II-III. Reports came from Puerto Rico at Morovis, Vega Alta, Humacao and Guaynabo, P.R. Today's event began a strong sequence including
at least 17 aftershocks of M>3 suggesting a strong accumulation of stress in the area which could lead to a major event in the near future. In recent months earthquakes in this area have become more common and aftershock sequences have been very energetic. This is often considered an activation stage which commonly precedes major earthquakes. Such an activation phase may also be underway in the Tokai area near Tokyo in which three major earthquakes have occurred this week.
We emphasized the potential for a major event in Puerto Rico in yesterday's
report as follows:
"A moderate earthquake of M 4.7 in Puerto Rico was the strongest in the U.S. and possessions today. NEIC reported this earthquake was felt in the Sint Eustatius region of the Netherlands Antilles at Golden Rock and Oranjestad with intensity II-III. The first major hurricane of the new season has formed off Africa and is moving across the Atlantic. These hurricanes often trigger additional seismicity in the Leeward and Windward Islands of the Caribbean but seismicity in Puerto Rico is more directly affected by storms forming in the Caribbean and moving to the east into the Atlantic.
Puerto Rico is well past due for a great earthquake and statistics show this is
most likely to occur during hurricane season after a close encounter with a major hurricane. A strong tsunami from such an event is a real possibility."

Information on the History of Puerto Rico Earthquakes and Tsunamis - from link:
Four strong earthquakes have affected Puerto Rico since the beginning of its colonization. The most recent of these occurred on October 11, 1918. The epicenter was located northwest of Aguadilla in the Mona Canyon (between Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic). This earthquake had an approximate magnitude of 7.5 on the Richter scale and was accompanied by a tsunami ("tidal" wave) which got up to 6 meters (19.5 feet) high. Damage was concentrated in the western area of the Island because this was the closest zone to the earthquake.
The earthquake killed about 116 people and caused more than 4 million dollars of
damage. Numerous houses, factories, public buildings, chimneys, bridges and
other structures suffered severe damage.
On November 18, 1867, 20 days after the Island was devastated by Hurricane San Narciso, a strong earthquake occurred with an approximate magnitude of 7.5 on the Richter Scale. The epicenter was located in the Anegada Passage, between Puerto Rico and St. Croix, Virgin Islands. The earthquake produced a tsunami that ran inland almost 150 meters (490 feet) in the low parts of the coast of Yabucoa. This quake caused damage in numerous buildings on the Island, especially in the eastern zone.
Possibly the strongest earthquake that has affected Puerto Rico since the beginning of colonization occurred on May 2, 1787. This was felt strongly throughout the
Island and may have been as large as magnitude 8.0 on the Richter Scale. Its
epicenter was possibly to the north, in the Puerto Rico Trench. The quake was
felt very strongly all across the Island. It demolished the Arecibo church along
with the El Rosario and La Concepcion monasteries and damaged the churches at
Bayamon, Toa Baja and Mayaguez. It also caused considerable damage to the
castles of San Felipe del Morro and San Cristobal, breaking cisterns, walls and
Seeing the history of the quakes at the Puerto Rico trench - you can now see, Tsunamis do occur with them.
Puerto Rico used to get around 300 quakes a year - yet in one weeks time they have had almost 1/3 of that amount - (now 104 showing) in One weeks time.
Doesn't that prove that something is UP and Not normal there? Please if you know of people in the area - it does not hurt to have food, water and other emergency supplies ready.
UPDATE: AUG 15TH 10:03 AM EST

Another article today - mentions the dollar will have controlled inflation and the real price of what Gold should be (shadow) will eventually be at $6000.00 per ounce.
Link to article in PDF form: http://www.gata.org/files/QBAssetManagement-07-2009.pdf
As the SGP implies, an ounce of gold would fetch almost $6,000 if we lived in a world characterized by disciplined money issuance. In effect, people and governments around the world would have been exchanging their Federal Reserve Notes for gold to the point that it would take 6000 bills to buy an ounce. The Shadow Gold Price solves for the price of an ounce of gold if the US dollar were still pegged to gold and its rise reflects the inflation of the Monetary Base. (Gold used to actually be the US Monetary Base prior to 1971, when the US and other governments abandoned the Bretton Woods Agreement that imposed monetary discipline on their money printing.)
Obviously this appears to be a crazy gold price within the context of the $900-plus price at which gold has been trading recently on global exchanges (though we do remember its rapid move from $35 to $880 the last time around). We are under no illusions that the price of Comex gold will rise to track what we see as its intrinsic value (not because it shouldn’t, but because we expect external market forces with great interests in protecting the sovereignty of fiat currencies to step in before that occurs, see “Potential Endgame – A Managed USD Devaluation” below).
There is a lot more in the article, including charts. I suggest everyone read this, who is interested in gold.
Position yourself for the coming huge economic changes here in the U.S. and abroad. Make sure you have covered yourself, in preparations in all ways.
The amount of commericial shorts has increased (I can guess why - the dollar is going to be falling in the index Big time - next month - I bet).
The chart is from: http://news.goldseek.com/CliveMaund/1249844182.php
There are more charts there - but look at his comment -
So how do we reconcile the seemingly very bullish chart pattern for gold with the seemingly bearish COT data? Whilst recognising that gold could climb in the face of Large Spec long and Commercial short positions rising to even greater extremes, a more likely scenario is that Big Money is preparing an ambush - a sharp reversal to the downside to shake the little guy out and scoop up his gold and PM stocks at knockdown prices before prices reverse again to the upside and then the breakout to new highs occurs. This scenario is described in more detail in the article BIG MONEY'S game plan to FLEECE GOLDBUGS ahead of THE BIG ONE.
A complicating factor that could exacerbate the downside in PM stocks should gold and silver break lower will be if the broad stockmarket goes into correction mode at the same time. This looks likely as Abbey Joseph Cohen appeared on CNBC last week proclaiming a new bullmarket, which has been found to be one of the most reliable indicators that we are close to an intermediate top in the market at least.
If the talking heads on T.V. tell you one thing - look the opposite way. Please don't forget the insiders of the markets have been selling off their stocks! The link is in another post on this page - about the selling off of their stocks.

Big Week Next Week - What will happen? Treasury T-Bill Auction Record 75 Billion - 3 and 10 and 30 year bonds
The 3 year will be on the 11th (Tuesday) for $37 Billion
The 10 year will be on the 12th for $23 Billion
The 30 year will be on the 13th for $15 Billion
The govt. estimates they will issue $406 Billion of U.S. debt for the months of July and August .
The problem is I don't think the debt is actually going out to buyers as much as they have wanted. The Fed. admitted to buying $7 Billion of the last sales debt. I believe it was actually more though, as consolidated buyers might have also been investment houses funneling the money for the Fed.
I sure hope investment houses and retirement account executives are not putting people's hard earned money in U.S. debt, they are in charge of, via money market accounts.
So, lets keep our eyes on what happens next week, if there were not buyers for the U.S. debt clamoring over the 2/5/7 year bonds that were up last week. I can't imagine they will be buying the longer term ones very fast.
Also, will China show up this time? What countries will show up - will any?
Another thing - watch what happens on Thursday after the bond sales are over - will the dollar index take a dive - if the bond auction doesn't exactly go great?
Next week is a week to watch the bonds - and that isn't James Bond! ;) Unless it is sneaky stuff the Fed does to make the U.S. dollar still look strong by having money funneled through their "friends".
California's Fraud and Con Game Against the People - Issuing IOU's, which Banks don't Acknowledge and making People Pay Taxes on Them
If any person or business committed Fraud like that - where they give people a worthless piece of paper and then told those people - they then had to give them back a percentage of the worthless paper - they would be turned in and arrested. They would be convicted by the courts of a Con and Fraud Scheme.
How can California actually expect people to pay taxes on money they did not receive?
Those businesses are hurting in the first place, I would bet, due to laying out their own money to do business with the state and yet not get paid.
link to information :
SAN FRANCISCO (CN) - Small businesses that received $682 million in IOUs from the state say California expects them to pay taxes on the worthless scraps of paper, but refuses to accept its own IOUs to pay debts or taxes. The vendors' federal class action claims the state is trying to balance its budget on their backs.
Lead plaintiff Nancy Baird filled her contract with California to provide embroidered polo shirts to a youth camp run by the National Guard, but never was paid the $27,000 she was owed. She says California "paid" her with an IOU that two banks refused to accept - yet she had to pay California sales tax on the so-called "sale" of the uniforms.
The class consists mostly of small business owners, many of whom rely on income from government contracts to keep afloat. They say California has used them as "suckers" as it looks for a way to bankroll its operations while avoiding its own financial obligations. "Instead of seeking funds through proper channels, the State has created a nightmare," the class says. "Many of these businesses will not survive if they are required to wait until October 2009 to have these forced IOUs redeemed by the State."
The class claims the state is violating the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments. It demands that California be ordered to honor its own IOUs, plus interest. They are represented by William Audet.

What is going on with the Pacific Ocean? Giant Squids, and Now Pilchard Fish washing up Dead on Shores, Sea Otters Dying in Mass
A few weeks ago, Giant Squid washed up in the San Diego area, right before a large quake in the Pacific.
Let me also clarify, I have kept an eye on Whale and Dolphin Beachings and then watch the quake map to see if there is correspondence to the beachings and earthquakes. I have found some correspondening events. There was a huge whale beaching earlier this year in Tasmania, then an unusual quake hit days later in Southern Australia, near Tasmania. The thing about whale beachings is, there are thousands of deserted islands throughout the Pacific and beachings are not found, unless it happens in a populated area.
Now there are reports out today of all kinds of beachings around California and Canada.
Link to the Giant Squid and Pilchard Fish along the Canadian Coast:

TOFINO — Nearly 1,000 pilchard and herring washed up on a Tofino beach Wednesday, just days after a similar phenomenon involving Humboldt squid.
Here is information regarding the Squid Only
Dozens of so-called jumbo squid have washed ashore along Vancouver Island beaches in recent weeks, although a local biologist believes their deaths were likely natural.
The Humboldt squid have been washing up in the Tofino area, on the west coast of the island.
Josie Osborne of the Raincoast Education Society says the squid were probably immature juvenile animals that may have been hunting before the water carried them to land.
"What likely happened is that they came closer to the water's surface during the night (when they hunt) as they were chasing their prey, and they may have encountered colder water or stronger currents and washed ashore on the beach," Osborne wrote in a mass email this week.
The species is native to the deep waters off Mexico, but have moved north as waters have warmed.
Osborne suggested the especially warm waters caused by the El Nino phenomenon brought the squid into Canadian waters.
"The presence of the squid and their prey is a reminder that we are experiencing an El Nino event this year — a climatic oscillation that occurs every three to eight years and which results in warmer waters off the west coast of Vancouver Island," wrote Osborne.
Osborne said there was a similar mass stranding in La Jolla, Calif., just three weeks ago.
Nikki Laine, who owns a bed and breakfast on Chesterman Beach near Tofino, was out walking with a friend when they came across 38 squid.
Laine said all but one appeared to be dead, and while the animals didn't smell, there were lots of flies about.
"I've never seen a squid around on any beach in 30 years," she said. "It was really sad. I sort of wondered why they washed up on the beach."
I have always been amazed, the experts always put out some reason right away, (they do the same with whale beachings) instead of looking deeper into the incidents. First, what is going on in the Pacific Ocean?
Sea Lions and Sea Otters are Dying in Mass right now along the California coast too. The reasoning, I have been reading is because so many were born last year. But it seems to me, nature takes care of it's own on a normal basis. Is their food supply dying off, causing them to die?
MONTEREY, CA (KGO) -- Sea otters along the California coast are dying faster than at any time since the late 1990s. It is disturbing new evidence of the threat ocean pollution is posing to marine wildlife.
We do know, for instance, that it is not reduced reproduction that is limiting population growth; we know that it is indeed elevated mortality," USGS wildlife biologist Tim Tinker said. Tinker has been studying the otter population since the early 1990's.
The spring census found just over 2,600 otters along 375 miles of coast; a nearly 4 percent drop from the year before.
Betty and Jack Duffield noticed the decline immediately. Every year they visit Moss Landing State Beach in the shadow of the old power plant. It is a little known spot where an extraordinary number of otters hang out. Tuesday, Betty counted just 26.
"When wildlife decreases there's a problem; it's very disturbing," Betty Duffield said
Researchers agree. They say the drop in the otter population is much more serious and much more significant than the problems seen this year with other marine mammals like sea lions.
Otters are often referred to as the cannery in the coal mine because they are an early indicator as to the overall health of the ocean.
Lab tests indicate the otters are dying primary from infectious disease, likely caused by manmade pollutants.
The information regarding Sea Lions washing up on the shores of California
Record number of Sea Lions Washing up on Central Coast Shores
If you spend any time at the beach, you may have noticed a number of sea lions washing up on Central Coast shores.
Experts at the Marine Mammal Center in Morro Bay say they are seeing an unusual number of strandings this year.
Rehab centers for marine mammals are taking in almost three times the number of injured, sick and malnourished sea lions that they normally do.
It is estimated that just 20 percent of all newborn sea lions survive.
So far this year, 860 sea lions have been taken in for rehabilitation.
Their overpopulation and scarce food options could be to blame.
I have read how many have been dying and also seen on the highways in California.
Something is happening in the Pacific, including the new land which rose in Alaska last month - which just appeared almost overnight and there is still no explaination for. It was a large amount of land too.
Like a giant fist punching through the earth, a 1,000-foot long section of the beach below Bluff Point rose up 20 feet from the tidelands sometime last Friday or late Thursday, pushing boulders up from the ocean bottom, cracking sandstone slabs and toppling rocks upside down.
Below Bluff Point, a new fissure opened up at the base of the 800-foot high cliff. The uplift could be a re-activation of a landslide that happened perhaps 12,000 years ago.
"There was just beach before," said Ron Hess, who lives on Bluff Road above the new uplift. "Now there are tidal pools."
"You can see a rock circle," said Marilyn Hess. "All you used to see was one big rock, and now you can see this uplift of rock."
Scientists don't know exactly what caused the uplift. It would take an earthquake over magnitude 7 to cause an uplift that high, said Peter Haeussler, a geologist with the U.S. Geological Survey in Anchorage.
"I have no idea," he said when he first learned of the uplift. "This sounds really, really bizarre."
There are so many different things going on in the Pacific of sea animals dying, land rising, and volcanoes erupting in record numbers this year around the ring of fire.
I wish scientist and geologist would look more closely at everything and start putting the dots together, instead of throwing out a reason immediately. There is more going on which needs to be looked at and watch what Earth events happen after beachings etc. If others can watch and start putting events together and see there is more of a reason of the sea animals committing suicide than just hunger or the other reasons they come up with.
It makes sense to me, that animals living in the ocean are affected by Earth movements under the ocean which can cause them harm or distress from the noise happening with the Earth and the sound traveling through the water.
Personally, I will be watching the undersea volcanoes (like Tonga) and for large Earthquakes in the very near future for possible links to the various animals beaching and dying along the coast today and the last few days.
The above sea animal deaths along the West Coast of the U.S and Canada - could be precursors to some large Earth events.
I will be keeping an eye on the U.S.G.S Earthquake map, to watch and see if something happens Earth wise, causing the animals to commit suicide.
I feel it is strange for all of these animal deaths happening close in time - without some kind of link connecting them, besides global warming and hunger.
The site might seem a little extreme in other ways, but the information and downloads are Fabulous! Learn about how to do things and survive in any situation.
Great Information - for anyone who is interested in survival type situations, no matter what they are.
It is mind boggling the amount of information available for free downloads, you would need a Huge hard drive if you actually downloaded them all.

Before I get to the article - I also want to say, if you are familiar with the webbot - then you know they are pretty much on target with what will be happening. Something keeps coming up in the language at various times. What might that be?
Silver keeps being mentioned in the Alta Reports - one says next year Silver will be from $600 to $800 per ounce!! Imagine That!! Compared to under $15.00 today per ounce. Recently in the language there was a mention of silver, it was where it would be $24.00 per ounce one day and just days later - it would shoot up to $350.00 per ounce!! NOW Imagine That!!
Is the above information guaranteed? NO - Do not take that information as gospel - I am simply relaying what it says happens. Of course I can HOPE!!
So, knowing this language has been out there about Silver - I like to see what news is around regarding it.
I found a wonderful article today - from someone I follow and is truly a Silver Expert.
Ted Butler - he has a newsletter called "Silver Seek".
He had some great information today, which is encouraging to me, that the Webbot Alta language may just be on to something.
link to article: http://news.silverseek.com/TedButler/1249414304.php
"For instance, despite a sharp $3.50 decline from the $16 level in early June, no metal was liquidated in the combined holdings of the silver EFTs. This was very much at odds with the normal pattern of some liquidation in past price declines. Instead, combined silver holdings rose to new records. Plus, a number of new investment vehicles buying physical silver were introduced during this period. By my count, as many as 15 million ounces of silver may have been accumulated by existing and new ETF vehicles in the past month, adding to the hundreds of millions of ounces accumulated and taken off the market over the past few years. This contrasted with a notable liquidation in gold ETF holdings, even though the gold price declined in much smaller percentage terms over the same time period."
Above you can read, silver holdings have increased more than gold.
Oh, by the way, in case you did not know - there is actually less Silver in the World than there is Gold!! Also Silver is used for many more applications than gold is. Silver is an industrial metal besides an investment metal.
"In addition, Silver Eagle sales from the US Mint have accelerated over the past two months, with July recording the second largest monthly sales of the year. Gold Eagle sales, while still very strong for the year, recorded the second lowest monthly sales for the year in July. The Mint is on a pace that could result in more than 28 million ounces of Silver Eagles being produced and sold this year, the most in history and roughly three times larger than the average for the past decade. To put this number in perspective, the 28 million ounces potentially consumed in new Silver Eagles would represent more than 75% of all the silver mined annually in the US, the world’s eighth largest producer. This takes silver off the market and tightens physical supply. For comparison purposes, Gold Eagle sales, on the current pace, will consume 15% of gold mine production in the US, the world’s fourth largest producer."
As you can read - almost all the silver produced is consumed, compared to Gold - only 15% is consumed.
"Now there are promising signs of change, the most important being the appointment of a dynamic new chairman at the CFTC, Gary Gensler. He brings to the Commission something rarely observed in the history of the CFTC, market experience and a sense of purpose. As I indicate in this new interview with King World News, Click Here
I think Gensler is already the best chairman in CFTC history, even though he has been on the job for little more than 2 months. I think he represents the best chance ever that the CFTC will terminate the decades-long silver manipulation. Someday, I may have to eat my words, but that day is not today. Let me explain why."
Since there is a new Chairman, Ted Butler feels there is a good chance the manipulation will end. He has a very good, but somewhat complicated explanation at the link. The explanation is detailed, so I would advice going to the link to read it completely.
The long and short of it is, hopefully with the new chairman - the obvious manipulation which has been ignored for decades will now come to an end. The manipulation is at that point where only fools involved with the manipulation can deny it. The data has gotten overwhelming and obvious. I am reinserting graphs here, that I have in a post farther down on the page.
We can only Hope and Watch the market.
Have you positioned yourself for the manipulation of the metals market to possibly and finally come to an end?

Five Ways Vitamin D Can Save Your Life
Promotes Weight Loss
You need vitamin D to effectively lose weight. Your insulin works better, and vitamin D helps you lose belly fat. Diabetes is also related to low vitamin D levels.
Reduces Risk of Death
Your overall mortality is reduced.
Fewer Bone Fractures
Without vitamin D, calcium can't be absorbed. But if you get enough vitamin D, it can help you avoid osteoporosis, bone fractures and falling, which is a cause of morbidity among the elderly.
Reduces Risk of Heart Disease
Vitamin D improves blood flow by relaxing the blood vessels and lowering blood pressure.
Helps Fight Cancer
Vitamin D improves the functioning of your immune system, and that helps fight cancer.
Five Ways to Get Vitamin D
15 Minutes of Sun 3 Times Per Week
You can get 10-15 minutes of high-noon sun exposure in warmer climates a few times a week. In the South you can do this all year long; but in the North it will work only in the summer months. But this is unrealistic for those who already wear sunscreen all day, or have been warned to stay out of the sun by their doctors.
Fatty Fish and Cod Liver Oil
If you are one of those people who have been warned to stay out of the sun, another good natural source of vitamin D is fatty fish
In food, vitamin D is naturally found in fatty fish like salmon and in cod liver oil.
Fortified Dairy Products
You also can get vitamin D in fortified dairy products. But you need to be careful. There are only 100 units of vitamin D per cup, so kids and most adults would need at least four cups of dairy products per day.
You could drink four glasses of milk a day, but most people choose not to.
Most multivitamins have a substantial amount of vitamin D.
Vitamin D Supplements
I recommend 1000 to 2000 international units of vitamin D supplements every day. It's cheap, there are no side effects or down sides. Although D3 is considered more potent and longer lasting, both D2 and D3 are acceptable.
In my opinion, it is highly important to start taking Vitamin D and C now for the coming flu season, so your body has built up it defense systems against the flu.

Looks like I may have been correct. A new article is out today in the Wall Street Journal about the t-bill/bond U.S. debt auction this last week.
http://www.gata.org/node/7644 - Please read this article - It is an article today, from the Wall Street Journal - about this last week's T-bill/bond/U.S. debt Fed. auction.
Seems that the T-bill auctions 2 and 5 year were a FAILURE on Tues and Weds - but miraculously the 7 year auction on Thursday was WONDERFUL.
I thought B.S.!!! If people didn't buy the shorter term auctions/U.S. debt - why in the world would they buy the 7 year?
I figured the U.S. govt. funneled money through other sources and purchased their own debt, so the U.S. still looks like everything is still going strong, and people still have confidence in the U.S. dollar! Looks Like I may have been correct - even the Wall Street Journal is questioning WHO the buyers were for the 7 year bond. They also say the govt. does not have to release that info.
It says China - MISSED the auctions!!!
What does that tell you?
China has been purchasing our debt - no matter what!! But now they are not!?
People have known, when China Stops purchasing the U.S. debt - it will be game over pretty soon afterwards, though covering up the facts will continue for a little while - by the govt., until it can't be covered up anymore.
I can tell you it means, the U.S. is printing money like mad to purchase it's own debt, and other countries have dropped us and do not have confidence in the U.S. or the dollar, NOW!!
This has been the moment that many people have been preparing for. Please do not be fooled by the run up in the market - in fact expect more - BUT look at all the financial advisors, CEO's and all those others in the know - behind the scenes they have been getting RID of their stocks - quietly but surely!
link to article about MASSIVE Insider Sell Offs
Please think about it, if insiders are selling - doesn't that tell you something? Doesn't that mean that the MSM has been saying the "Recession is Over" - what they are not telling you - Yes that part might be over - but the next part is the Depression. Look carefully at Everything - you have in the market, can you afford to lose it all, possibly? Many analyst are saying yes - a little more run up is going to happen - BUT by the end of August - their expectations is a HUGE downturn in the market.
Look at what companies you have in stocks, what is their leverage - against their price? Don't be fooled by what an investment banker tells you - RESEARCH YOURSELF!!
Honestly - this is important - it looks like we are now reaching that turning point, many - including me has been expecting - when NO ONE else buys our debt anymore. The U.S. has TOO much of it - that can NOT be paid back! The only way to pay it back is through Hyperinflation - which is going to happen anyway - due to the unbelievable amount of new dollars printed - in the Trillions since last Sept.
Something I have said, over and over - right now the preservation of your wealth/money is going to be in commodities - and guess which one will do the most for you? Yep - metals! Also do NOT buy into the EFTs - they are falling, some info is coming out that the "paper" gold purchase - doesn't have the physical to back it up. So, that means you may think you are buying gold through the paper market - but it is oversold- and doesn't have the actual gold to back it up. OH - Silver is the Best in my opinion, anyway.
Also - yes - still all that manipulation going on - in the metals area.
Oh, when the MSM - broadcast "how well the T-bill auction went" - you will know better now! Look and question everything - they are saying - does it make sense - is everything really rosy?
