    Perception is reality.
    It does not matter the degree of the insolvency as long as the mind numb ecomic zombies think all is well. The town crier on script will tell the zombies when to panic. Those that handed the town crier the script will profit from being positioned ahead of the painfully slow mass flow of mindless currency.
    It does not matter if you are right it matters more what script the town crier is reading from says. “Ais well” or “Battle stations”. The script writers will tell the zombies when all is well even when all is not! Even when things are well when the script says they are not all hell will break loose! When seated in the theatre it is important to know whether or not you bought a ticket to a “mellow chick flick” or to a horror picture. With The Fed as our projectionist we should expect a lot of both in coming attractions.

    Dick Tracy says:

    The course of stocks depends entirely on the money situation, business is in the dumpster and will stay that way but I can’t understand why anyone can’t see why the market is behaving like it is.

    This to is the last poker hand of the end game and if you look around the room it is not hard to spot “The Bagholders”.

    The interest rates are as close as you can get without tipping into negative territory, The Fed is pumping massive amounts of money not only in the US but in all western countries and probably in Asia as well. The debt is so huge that it has forced the governments hands, they must lift the stock market at all costs any other play will crash the system. Americans have always had a love affair with stocks if they see them doing well they think the invisible hands know what they are doing, capiche? The margin accounts are sitting at almost half a trillion dollars, is the system stretched you bet and soon it will be forced into bankruptcy. DT

      There is no gain in telling people the higher the market goes the harder it will fall. Most people have short term memories when it comes to speculation. Two steps up, one step down, two steps up again isn’t that how it works. If you sold, you just have to wait for the next crash and buy in again. But why sell at all, if your stock is sound, the wise man is he who bought and held on, it’s all nonsense, especially when you listen to the people in power. DT

          Weidemer say’s 50% unemployment, ( the 1930’s it was 25%, I hope this guy is a wrong), 90% stock market drop, ( the 1930’s it was 50%), and 100% annual inflation starting in 2013, (the 1930’s had deflation), I would prefer then to now! DT

            Thanks for the reminder about Wiedemer; -this is worth listening to again.
            Greg Hunter posted this interview with Wiedemer on June 18.
            (17 minutes)

            ” In his latest book, “The Aftershock Investor,” Bob Wiedemer says to get out of stocks and bonds. He predicts, “Between now and 2014, I think you’re going to fall out of bed. . . . Stock investors could take a very big hit—well over 50%.” Wiedemer calls gold “the once and future king” and goes on to predict “gold will go to $6,000 to $7,000 per ounce.” Join Greg Hunter as he goes One-on-One with author Bob Wiedemer.”

    Eisenhower (sp) warned the people with his last speech I believe about whats happening today. JFK attempted to disband the cia. The riddle within the inigma just killed him. Nobody tried that again.
    What I found truly funny was (and people still do) people believed in “magic bullets”.
    Maybe these beliefs are human nature? People today believe 3 towers can come down with 2 airplanes and all it involves.
    I guess discussion of snowden and manning and police that murder with impunity is a good thing. I would think those in control think its a great thing as talk will do little to change anything, but people do have to start somewhere.
    I would just like to mention, the people of the 30s-40s were the same way as we are now, discuss.
    I think the root cause is the moneychangers, religion, political idiologies only serve to confuse.
    What I think is happening is those informed enough will discuss and discuss until the people of North America are entirly enslaved and they will like it.
    Those unaware might wonder what has happened, but I doubt it.

    Just listened to Al and Bob.
    Bob can see the obvious. A smart guy. Al, maybe watch some George Carlin.
    Not one single word did he believe from our governments.
    He will explain your rights. You dont have any.
    Al, when police kill citizens with impunity…well.. thats not exactly freedom.
    Land of the brave? Was it bravery that killed the 500 thousand children in Iraq?
    To me, its very obvious as to why a tyranny can take a nation.
    People just refuse to examine their own beliefs
    I understand the mind will defend beliefs tooth and nail even when they are ludicrous, but sometimes its ..come on, wake up guys.

    Another good show guys, thanks again.

        That one is funny Dennis. Obviously he is right about the bankers but the ideas too violent for people to see the message I think.
        Same as Max keiser, people wont see the same message of “ITS THE BANKERS” due to his presentation.
        Kind of not seeing a forest due to too many trees.
        But totaly funny and apropro in my opinion none the less.

    Segment 1 sounds like a page from Endless Euphoria: Markets Rise On Central Bank Buying of Stocks & Gold http://seekingalpha.com/article/1389961-endless-euphoria-markets-rise-on-central-bank-buying-of-stocks-and-gold Catherine Fitts – She believes gold`s secular bull is intact and that soverigns are trying to push retail investors out of their PM holdings. …. John Williams – My research says that unfortunately that view is accurate barring unimaginable acts of market manipulation by CB`s to make markets soar away from crumbling economies as the top tier detach from peons pulling the wagon. ….. Perhaps this is why Sovereigns are buying hard assets: this may be why one of their proxies drove prices down, so they could buy. ….. its really a fantasy in the making – new highs in the stock market yet whose buying: BANKS ?

      Why has Senator John McCain working with the Democrats pushing the reenactment of GlassSteagall: Wall Street`s Permanent Bank Holiday (New LPAC Video) ? To give to Obama his freedom over all of us. No longer just a day as Presidents Day is, but Obama president for our life time. The video doesn`t say this but what it does it say is party over for Wall Street gamblers and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hOJLWtSfKks

    This weekend’s show was particularly good. The ’round table” was excellent as were the interviews with the Casey Research crew.

    It does seem to my simple mind that the adage ‘don’t fight the Fed’ is quite apropos. It is difficult to understand how the apparent dichotomy between ‘market fundamentals’ and the soaring values for equities in the stock markets has come to exist UNLESS the Fed’s monthly $85, 000, 000, 000 goes right into equities via the TBTF banks. I wonder whether the rate of growth in equities is about $85Billion per month?

    And finally is Seattle going to change the name of “Citizen Kane” to “Resident Kane”? http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/08/02/seattle-officials-call-for-ban-on-potentially-offensive-language/

    For anyone who is all right with ubiquitous spying by governments “because I’m not doing anything wrong,” I will point out this: YOU do not get to determine what is considered right and wrong. In the not too distant past, it was “wrong,” i.e., illegal, to assist slaves in escaping their captivity, and in another circumstance, to provide aid to Jews who were attempting to avoid certain death. I fear that the “I’m not doing anything wrong” crowd will have a very nasty awakening one day.

    …..with all the heat the Gov. got about NSA and Spying, the “unspecified Threat” with all the “BumTata” (Security Meeting in the Oval Office, Interpol Warning, closing of Embassys, …) comes as no Surprise to demonstrate the necesity! Lets all vote Republican….lol

      Mike,,,with all due respect…..Republicans are part of the TWO HEADED SNAKE……..
      There is no difference between the two parties. The Two Headed Snake, is a term Jackson used in approximately 1837 to describe the parties, which there was and is no difference. We have not had a true two party system since or before 1913, if then. Both parties are the same,,,,more war, more taxes, more control.
      The 535 members of Congress , simply are just saying anything to get the vote,,when they get in office ,they do nothing as promised. Remember Bush the Republican, took us to war, put us under the Patriot Act, I think he was a Republican.
      Neither party will balance the budget, neither wants peace in the world. SO VOTING REPUBLICAN IS A JOKE…………..VOTING FOR A DEMOCRATE IS A JOKE….
      The two parties are the same….ONE BODY TWO HEADS………AND THAT IS THE “TWO HEADED SNAKE” we have.

    corporal Manning [and wiki leaks] did something helpful if illegal. I think Manning should receive a brief sentence in military prison ]2 or 3 years]. and a BCD . he has already served more than a year in harsh isolation. by the way he will be one of those computer savy guys who will always be employable after he exits prison. Putting him in jail for 30 years is not productive. he will never be allowed to work in any secret areas again. see how the price of oil tends to stay between 95 and 105 . earnings for oil producers will be rising. best of health and wealth to all S
