The Federal Reserve and Monetary PolicyThread Started October 19 at 12:51AM
<< Thread Modifed October 19 at 12:53AM >>
Recon brought up the Federal Reserve on another thread and I think it deserves a thread of its own because there are a lot of conspiracy theories flying around about the Fed. What springs to mind is the all powerful, but little known, Illuminati, ie the Rothschilds.
As Nathan Rothschild once said "I care not which puppet sits on the throne. The man who controls the money supply controls the land, and I control the money supply."
The US has the Federal Reserve, We have the Bank of Canada and almost every country has a central banking system in case the elected officials aren't as entirely community minded as they should be. In almost all cases they are subservient to the BIS (Bank of International Settlements) whose head office is in Switzerland. The BIS governs almost the entire world's economy and those economies it doesn't govern somehow always wind up losing a major war of survival and have to be rebuilt with a new central bank under the BIS. I wonder how Greece fits into this?
I'm not certain how your Federal Reserve works other than it controls inflation through financial instruments such as market and interest rate adjustments, an increase which was just recently announced.
I look forward to enlightenment from those who know a lot more.

Breitbart Made Up False Story That Immigrant Started Deadly Sonoma (California) Wildfires, Sheriff's Office Says
"This is completely false, bad, wrong information that Breitbart started and is being put out into the public," a Sonoma County sheriff's spokesman said.
This comes from previous White House National Security Council and chief presidential advisor, Steve Bannon, who is deeply in the hip pocket of the billionaire Mercers.
What the hell is the matter with people? If you want to get rid of certain races, just be honest and say you just don't want them around. Stop pretending they deserve your hate by accusing them falsely so you can continue to portray yourself as a harmless victim.

Now what is this thread about. The Federal Reserve, physics or the unjust claims by Brietbart Media?
Yes, Gloria, sadly many people or entities will wield their abherrant biased spewing poison to incite hatred and their agenda.
As we all know, wildfires can be ignited for many reasons. If the ground is dry and brittle enough. I believe their average rainfall from June to September is around 6 to 7 inches and an average temperature in the day of 72, night about 17 degrees lower. It takes the right moment and the right mix to make conditions extremely volatile.
How sad many immigrants felt they were forced to find different means of shelter away from these life threatening fires instead of safe havens for themselves and their tender children, for fear of being deported.
Shame on Brietbart for deliberately lying and embellishing a story designed to evoke unrest.

I actually wanted the thread to be about monetary policy, but it appears it isn't a very popular subject, and I refuse to watch an almost 2 and a half hour boring video. I've made my preferences clear on the matter. Videos are for the most part of no interest to me because they are slow and tedious. But since Recon prefers them I think it's fair I send videos in response to him and he responds to me in the form I prefer--considered writing.
But seeing as how I've already injected Breitbart News into this thread, here's another story worth a read. The MOST important thing to read are the comments. Lots of hate-filled comments.
Lady Gaga Poses for Photo with Five Former U.S. Presidents. I don't think I've read anything so heartbreaking. Are these the people who have the president of the USA's ear?

Tired of being lied to? You bet I am. Another BS meme spread around by a certain segment of Trump supporters on the president's Twitter wall today. As far as I know three of the four photos are in fact real just taken at different times. The last of the four I am not certain, but it doesn't match up with the its pair because the background is different. Yes, in the first of the matched pair Melania did indeed have to touch Trump's hand to remind him to put his hand over his heart for the anthem. And the first presidential debate photo is also correct. Second one? I don't know.
Stop with the lies folks, it's really destructive. And now the tech guys want to unleash software that will mimic voices. Give me a break! Photoshop is misleading enough. What possible good can arise from software that fakes voice tracks? Moreover what possible useful purpose can it have?

Well, I would like to contribute to the topic, but I'm afraid I have nothing useful to offer. I recently completed a course in which I spent months studying corporate governance, corporate financing and financial institutions, and to be honest, I'm not much wiser than when I started. To me, it's (still) largely smoke and mirrors. But yes, overnight loan rates are at the bottom of everything that drives the economy.
One of my classmates from primary school recently retired from a senior position with our central bank (RBA) at age 55. That's about 20 years earlier than most people will get to hang up their boots in this country. Every Facebook post I see from him, he and his family are in a different country. The last photos I saw were of them in the jungles of Africa with a family of mountain gorillas. So I think working for the RBA must pay reasonably well.
Am I envious much? Bitter about my choice of career path? Nooooooooooo, not at all.... lol
