    Dang, this will give old Harlan and Jimbo McKinney a heart attack!

    Could be the greatest Trump tweet of all time…can you image SHillary or Obammy ever saying this?

      Dec 21, 2018 21:50 PM

      MICongress……bull sh.. ers are gone……McCain, dead on arrival, and old Graham is showing his true colors……Trump flushed him out of the closet

        Dec 21, 2018 21:23 PM

        The MICer’s are stroking out over that one. And the liberals are having a conniption fit. I love to see how these MF’ers react to Trump’s tweets. The entertainment value is off the charts.

      To see what is really going on here you have to see who is still around the President.
      The troops are coming home and Blackwater is taking over. Your still going to get the bill for war. Like Chickens Voting for Colonel Sanders.

        Dec 21, 2018 21:55 PM

        Maybe I was a chicken voting for Colonel Paul. 🙂

          Dec 21, 2018 21:57 PM

          Or maybe a fish voting for Mrs. Paul…(Mrs. Paul’s fish sticks)

            Dec 21, 2018 21:06 PM

            How about you Eddy,When was the last time you heard Ron Paul talk about the dual Israeli/U S Politicians running your Country?

            Dec 21, 2018 21:21 PM

            I did find this…dang Brother Nathaniel and Ron Paul…never knew they had spoken…


            Dec 21, 2018 21:30 PM

            Dual Israeli/US Congressman running your Country?

            Dec 21, 2018 21:40 PM

            Overall, do you think Ron Paul was a net positive or negative? Would this country be better off if he was never born? Or never went into politics?

            Dec 21, 2018 21:03 PM

            Eddy I realized we were in a mess a long time ago. It was Bob Moriarty who opened my eyes. Bob educated a lot of here as to the situation we were in with the Israeli’s.
            The Israeli’s attacked the U S Liberty and nothing was done. The Israeli’s obtained Nuclear Weapons.Nothing was done. At some point these Politicians have to acknowledge that they have failed us. We deserved better.Our Children deserved better,our Grandchildren deserved better.Much like if you ever get investigated by the FBI,the next time you get investigated they will find nothing or else the first investigation would look bad. Politicians operate the same way.I commend Mr Paul for his Military Service. If I was to give him a score as a Politician,it would be a three based on his recorded votes..

    Dec 21, 2018 21:23 PM

    Can’t believe people think the FED is going to totally show they’re hand to the rest of the table. They’re going to do as much as they can………..and they don’t really know how much that is.
    Here’s some good comments on the subject from a bright guy IMO: Gary Tanashian.

    Dec 21, 2018 21:23 PM

    You’ll enjoy my comments on this with Al on the weekend show, then!

    Dec 21, 2018 21:33 PM

    You will never see this on kereport.

      Dec 21, 2018 21:55 PM

      Ron… spot on…….

        Dec 21, 2018 21:59 PM

        Panic coming sooner than later,….with the idiot Dems coming back into office…..

    I don’t get the mystery surrounding The Federal Reserve. When Alan Greenspan was Fed Chairman he was inflating the stock market by pumping in far too much liquidity at ridiculously low rates. What does anyone think would happen. Greenspan had all the information on the markets, both domestic and foreign. Any financial news he may need was provided to him by other Fed governors and their staffs. These people didn’t just get off the boat they have been to the best universities and are highly educated. Why couldn’t they see that the more credit you inflate the system with the more dangerous it becomes. Don’t they understand how bubbles occur. Why wouldn’t they be prepared at the first housing crisis to realize what they had done and where is our plan to fix it. I think the ultimate problem is one of human nature, people have egos and when they are in important positions and make big mistakes they would rather cover up their failings than admit their inadequacies. The longer you wait to resolve a serious problem the bigger the problems become. The biggest bubble is the debt bubble, the other bubbles can POP and the system seems to go on. Now it doesn’t matter what Powell does because The Debt Bubble has him covered. DT

      Dec 22, 2018 22:57 AM

      If you think this was an ego problem rather than a criminal problem, you’re out to lunch DT.

      They knew exactly what they were doing and meant to do exactly what they did.

      Greenspan et al are agents of private sector actors who rule from behind the throne.

    Dec 21, 2018 21:36 PM

    I wasn’t going to post but I have to respond to the Ron Paul post and once again I am going to call bullsh*t.
    Dr Paul has been on the KE Report before and he is spreading the same ol babble.
    I will give Mr Paul credit for bringing attention to the Federal Reserve, thats where it ends.
    Mr Paul was in Congress when 9/11 went down. Dr Paul knows when to keep his mouth shut and how far he can go until he gets his ass in a serious bind.
    Dr Paul will never accept any responsibility for the mess we are in now. Dr Paul will never call anybody out by name.Dr Paul will lead you no where.
    Don’t believe me? Go check his voting record while in Congress.

      Dec 21, 2018 21:43 PM

      I will give Mr Paul credit for bringing attention to the Federal Reserve, thats where it ends.
      That is HUGE……… 🙂

        Dec 21, 2018 21:58 PM

        They knew Ron was a push over. At least with Senator Daschle they sent him some Ryacin.

          Dec 21, 2018 21:03 PM

          And if do bother to check his voting record you will see that he was fond of pay raises.

            Dec 21, 2018 21:05 PM

            The sheep can pay the debt. I need a raise.Gotta love those liberty guys.

            Dec 21, 2018 21:15 PM

            Would you work for over 25 years with no pay raise? Not even a cost of living adjustment?

        Dec 21, 2018 21:30 PM

        When is the last time you heard Ron Paul talk about the dual Israeli /US citizens that have infiltrated your Government. Of course not. It’s the Fed.
        You lead by setting the example and your record speaks for itself. Eddy I would and have worked for nothing to keep a crew going. Its time for people to take off their rose colored glasses including Ron Paul.We’re 21 Trillion plus entitlements in debt as a Country. I wish everybody would stop Idolizing these bumbling babblers that brought us here and start calling them out.

          Dec 21, 2018 21:43 PM

          The debt will never be paid…….declare a jubilee and get it over with……

            Dec 21, 2018 21:57 PM

            Before they can crash it they need to have a new system in place. Fortunately for us here at the KE,I would have to believe that everyone here has a fair amount of Precious Metal.

      Dec 21, 2018 21:46 PM

      RP’s “same old babble” remains the same because the truth about America’s most pressing problems hasn’t changed one bit. As for keeping his mouth shut about 9/11, keep in mind the credibility of the threat to himself AND his family if he were to speak out. Joe Blow can get away with a lot more than any politician, especially a popular one.

      RP has led millions of fast asleep people to some critically important truths that might never have discovered otherwise. That’s hardly “nowhere.”

      It is ridiculous to suggest that RP should accept responsibility “for the mess we are in now.” Absolutely no one in politics has warned about the consequences of the Fed’s actions the way he has. He was warning about the inevitable housing bubble in 2003 while his were all clueless or worse right to the top when it popped.
      How many congressmen do you know that have refused their pension? I’m sure there’s a few, but probably none that served for so long.

        Dec 21, 2018 21:52 PM

        Left out “colleagues” – “…while his colleagues were all clueless or worse…”

        Dec 21, 2018 21:03 PM

        Ron Paul could have done more. Answer the question Mathew, When was the last time you heard Mr Paul talk about the dual Israeli /US Congressmen running your Country? No more sugar coating here.

          Dec 21, 2018 21:14 PM

          There’s more to it than just the Fed. Fed,Smed. How about the Billions we’ve squandered in the Middle East. I suppose Mr Paul doesn’t know who sits on the Rothchild/Fed controlled Genie Energy.Do you suppose he knows these guys? Rupert Murdoch,Dick Cheney,Bill Richardson,Larry Summers, James Woolsy.If you don’t stick up for America, who are you going to stick up for? If you can’t handle the heat ,get the hec out of there.

            Dec 21, 2018 21:00 PM

            I believe I did answer the question. The fact that you expect him to either risk everything or do nothing says something about your character. In the 1990s, no one stuck it to Greenspan like he did. The rest were too busy kissing his rear to ever put a single intelligent question to him. That tradition continued until RP quit politics many years later. No other politician’s track record comes close when it comes to showing that the emperor has no clothes.

            The billions squandered in the middle east has everything to do with the Fed, you just haven’t done your homework.

            The one unfortunate thing about RP is that he’s never been the best communicator and has a hard time making some important points in such a way that even ignorant people can understand. So we end up with too much “speaking to the choir” even though that’s the last thing he would want.

            Bottom line: he accomplished far more good for far more people by avoiding demands like yours that would have made it easy for his collectivist enemies to shut him down by labeling him an anti-Semite. You know damn well that the semiconscious masses would have fallen for it and ignored him from then on. So he was smart to take as many people as possible to the mouth of the rabbit hole and let them decide if they’d like to continue on their journey of discovery without him.

            Scott Horton has RP right:

            New Media and the Terror Wars

            Dec 21, 2018 21:18 PM

            Thats fair Mathew,and that’s what most people remember.There in lies the crux.
            As a Veteran I felt He should have pressed the U S Liberty attack. Not a peep.But then why should he?What would be in it for him?Every one of the people that have been Congressman and let this slide have no business there because they lack Honor.Integrity and Service to the men and Women who sacrificed their lives.

            Dec 22, 2018 22:06 AM

            I’m impatient myself, Snowbird, but Matthew is right. A leader can only get so far out ahead of his followers, or he will be a head cut off.

            The failing is much more generalized across the population, and we see plenty of it right here at KER. But we can’t get from point A to point B without covering the ground in between. It’s up to all of us who have pulled our heads out to do our part–again, trying not to get them cut off, because we are talking about some mean, vindictive, slimy, stop-at-nothing SOBs.

    Dec 21, 2018 21:40 PM

    Here is another review…..for you suckers who believe in the Fed…….

      Dec 21, 2018 21:44 PM

      just listen and repeat….until you get it…..start at 2:44

    Dec 21, 2018 21:08 PM

    Chris “Permabull” Temple needs to stop BSing himself and admit we are in a crash. Which by the way started in Jan. 2018.

      Dec 21, 2018 21:34 PM

      I think we are at the start of a brutal secular bear and these markets aren’t going to see their highs again for at least a generation, maybe two or even longer. I find it hard to see how anyone can be bullish in the near, mid or long term. But what the hell do I know, I thought these markets would crash years ago.

    Dec 24, 2018 24:17 AM

    Wow — didn’t realize I was a “permabull” — maybe there’s someone else using my name?

      Dec 24, 2018 24:41 AM

      I was hoping you’d see that comment! 🙄👍
