The Fed may think money printing boosts an economy, but the CIA knows what it really does.

Iranian Currency Falls 17% in One Day
Sanctions against Iran are making their impact, on the innocent working-class people of Iran--and the destruction of the currency may be getting a boost from the CIA.

International trade is dying and the currency is in free fall. It fell 17% this morning. The rial has lost more than 80 percent of its value since the start of the year.

I am also hearing that the CIA may be pumping newly (CIA printed) rial into the country in an effort to destabilize the country through hyper-inflation. The Fed may think money printing boosts an economy, but the CIA knows what it really does.

The FED has declared Covert War on America. END THE FED

Where is the secret service?
Who will defend the country from a private cartel that paid off some politicians to get its hands on the American currency?
Who?
WHO?

It blows me away....

But then this funny video makes it all make sense.

This is complete bullshit.

This is complete bullshit. Hyperinflation started when America cut Iran off from the SWIFT network which froze their foreign currency reserves. Since Iranian dollars can't be accepted in international trade, Iranians are dumping their local currency and accepting gold for payment of their oil and other exports. This is backfiring on the US because it's accelerating the Middle East's departure from the petrodollar system.

I am no expert but it seems to me this would be a good time for Iran to dump the dollar and tie their currency to gold as suggersted above.

Dangerous for Iran

Dumping the dollar is perfectly logical. But, the US cannot allow deviation from the petro-dollar. It sets a precedent that would collapse the USD.

The entire Middle East campaign is about securing the petro-dollar and installing "favorable" leadership.

Ahemm, sorry, "it is about spreading freedom & democracy".

It is really sad what the

It is really sad what the sanctions, and other forms of economic warfare, are doing to the innocent people of Iran. I also sympathize with Ahmadinejad making decisions being cornered as he is and fighting for truth and for peace.

Ummmm...

Can anybody verify (with a second source perhaps) that the CIA is involved? This "fact" is only in that one story...

The crippling of Iran's economy is bad enough

I'd hate to see this story discredited by some yellow journalism.

and it also just says they

and it also just says they "HEARING that the CIA MAY be" kinda fishy

They all know EXACTLY what it will do

which is why they are building bomb shelters, arming themselves against Americans and plotting to attack us and incarcerate us in camps.

Perhaps Main Street is the enemy of the Federal Reserve.

or not, Its a good reason not to use fiat currency.

The British did the same thing with Continental currency during the Revolution...You know the old saying, "Not worth a Continental"

Yup and if you saved (

Yup and if you saved ( Collect ) either Continental Currency ( the paper ) or Continental Dollars ( The coin ) you've made money while had you kept the equivilent amount in frn's you would have lost heavily. You would have doubled and tripled your frn's in the last decade by having it invested in any uncirculated Continental Dollar

And buy only coins that have been certified by PCGS/NGC.

It was just on CNN

Not the CIA part, but they were talking about how the sanctions made the Iranian economy take a major dive today.

This is propaganda BS

Again Mud Stream Media makes its way onto DP this is all crap peeps.

Would you consider Al Jazeera to be MSM?

Rial fall reported on Al Jazeera.

"One resists the invasion of armies; one does not resist the invasion of ideas" Victor Hugo

al Jazeera is a propaganda outlet for the West.

It was set up by the rulers of Qatar who along with Saudi Arabia belong to those Arab oil kingdoms who support the globalist agenda in the Middle East. Eventually the globalists will betray them too at which time maybe al Jazeera will be more credible

If you recall, the "conquest" of Tripoli during the Libyan War was filmed on a movie set constructed in Qatar and made to look like Tahrir Square in Tripoli; courtesy of al Jazeera.

I up voted David because I used to have to monitor AlJazeera

and I remember that the reporters were upset that they couldn't do the stories they wanted to do anymore because their board of directors had been re-seated by former American Ambassadors to the region.

I don't know much about the Tripoli stuff you mentioned. But I do know that the statue of Saddam that was pulled down at the onset of the Iraq war was a totally staged event.

Would you believe the Tehran Times?

I wasn't denying the effect of sanctions Sean.

I was responding to the question about al Jazeera. Even a stopped clock is right twice a day. The controlled media are usually in full press propaganda mode during wars. Otherwise the articles they carry and the way they are presented are usually following memes designed to engrave the elites' agenda onto the public mind.

You should check out The Daily Bell. They watch this process quite closely. www.thedailybell.com

Thx

Will do.

Operation Bernhard WW2

During WW2 the Germans were printing British Pounds. The war ended before they were able to dump enough into circulation to collapse the British currency. The remaining notes were found at the bottom of an Austrian lake in the 2000's.

Act of War

And war brings suffering to the innocent. It always does.

So they back Iran into a corner so tight that they finally break and lash out militarily... and then they are blamed for starting a hot war.

Disgusting.

"One resists the invasion of armies; one does not resist the invasion of ideas" Victor Hugo

Isn't that basically what

Isn't that basically what forced Japan to strike Pearl Harbor? As I recall, there was a blockade cutting off Japan.

Like everything in WW2, the explanation comes from WW1

Japan was encouraged by Great Britain & the USA to attack German colonies and holdings in China and the South Pacific. They also liked the way Japan handled Russia in 1905.

Japan thought it was reaching "equal status" with the "west"... etc.. They invested in a boom (bubble), the west started cutting them off from markets when it was apparent they were not willing to bow to European Superiority. The UK & USA feared their growing strength.

And... Japan was driven into a financial crisis resulting in nationalists gaining power. They promised to protect Japan from foreign intervention and to gain markets and resources by whatever means necessary.

Very simplistic explanation but read about the Showa Financial Crisis and Showa Era.
