Bernanke's Testimony Can Be Summed up in One Tweet

Smaulgld

Axel Merk (@AxelMerk) of Merk Investments made this point on Twitter “Why are there blogs, when there’s Twitter? 140 characters plenty to summarize Bernanke.”

I agree but couldn’t resist banging out a blog post anyway. I tweeted a few times my summary of Bernanke’s testimony this way:

@AxelMerk @WSJ Ben saying it all “depends” “IF” the economy improves as forecast-it won’t without QE so #nofedexit http://smaulgld.com/tag/fed-exit-strategy/

Fed moderates the pace of QE later this year, and end it around midyear 2014, IF economy evolves as forecast. It won’t so #nofedexit

@joebrusuelas Yep IF, IF IF All based on moving targets and slightly rosy forecasts that if not met, QE continues http://smaulgld.com/tag/fed-exit-strategy/

Taper? Fed says it may have to Let it Out by a few billion instead if things don’t improve as forecast #nofedexit http://smaulgld.com/tag/fed-exit-strategy/

How would you summarize Bernanke’s testimony? Tweet to @smaulgld

Bernanke: One word! An especially privileged word. $17 trillion.

Describe Bernanke in one word. (Question value: - $17 trillion). Bernanke in his own high value words.

Pulitzer Prize winner Liu Heung-Shing tells the WSJ how a fellow Associated Press photographer captured the iconic 'Tank Man' image during the Tiananmen Square crackdown in June 1989 — How the AP snuck the photo film past plainclothes police who were on the lookout for protesters and the media.

and the girl ain't bad either

So helecopter ben as my late grama used to say

If ifs and ands were pots and pans
there'd be no work for tinkers' hands
So you and I would be peddlers

Rothschild owned and controled private central banks that counterfeit sovereign curencies only to loan the counterfeit digitial curency back at a compounding national debt. Creating puppet governments,media,polititions, and judiciary. Using claims of false national debt to justify extorted theft called individual tax. Making free humans into slave servants on thier own land.

Enlightened disengagement, leaderless revolt, do not feed the beast it only survives as a parasite without a host it dies.

No is my final answer, its my birthright and my responsibility.

Now, you too can drop paper-money out of a helicopter!

Uncle Ben, Action Figure & his trusted Helicopter.

I don't know how you do it

but whenever I see Mark Twain, I know I'm going to laugh.

The paper money is not money its NOTES or DEBT

Counterfeit money used to drop claims of debt, NOTES. These claims then are used as justification for IRS collection. The collection is not about a need for money. Its about identification of those who will not comply to liars, thieves, and mass murderers. Then these non-compliant people can be separated, castigated, prisoned, tortured, and murdered as examples for those who will submit to the extortion. The obedient false debt slaves.

Yah those notes being droped are just for distraction.

They are tickets to the evil puppet show. Where puppet politicians from puppet governments make big speeches with puppet media. While the audience is being robbed and worse. The puppet master just laughed. Until he notices some in the audience not being taken in. Now the puppet master vacillates in a psycho schizophrenic spiral between fear of being found out and held accountable and the pleasure, greed of controlling the audience even unto their deaths.

Ahhh! Operation Bernanke

I wonder where that idea came from...

Is Ben short for Bernhard by any chance?

Does toy Bernanke

have to go through the Playmobil security checkpoint to get to his toy helicopter?

No. Sorry. Private business or personal aircraft go w/o TSA

'Checkpoint? What checkpoint? Action aviation ain't got no checkpoint!' Transportation Security Administration (TSA) does not mess with private or personal use aircraft as a rule. Having an Uncle Ben Action figure... as the lead secret transparent agent in a money-laundering clearly transparent private cartel would not be realistic.
General aviation aircraft have no use for the TSA: Not generally known that, as the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) said in a proposed set of rules in late 2008, “with few exceptions, T.S.A. does not currently require security programs” for general aviation aircraft operators. That class of aviation is very broad, including everything from a weekend pilot in a Piper Cub to a farmer’s crop duster to big $65 million business jets capable of spanning the world.

I have a problem

with one nut being larger than the other. One hangs lower than the other. Can't wait to print my way out of it :)

Ron brought the Liberty movement together, Rand is expanding the crap out of it! :)

You might need a 3d printer

for that type of problem

@smaulgld @bernanke QE=heroin... die with or without it.

Tools of war are not always obvious. The worst weapon is an idea planted in the mind of man. Prejudices can kill, suspicion can destroy, and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has an everlasting fallout all of its own.

you are right

the markets realize it, housing realizes it, and Bernanke knows it!
