The Magnitude Of The Downturn Has Set In

January 9th, 2010
By: Bob Chapman

Bankruptcy filings increased by a third, job market improvements only amount to less of a slowdown, industries coping with economic downturn, Fed still being deceptive, new unemployment filings also up, xmas presents from Geithner for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac

Excerpt:

Chapter 7 filings were up more than 42% as of November 2009, compared with the same period a year earlier, according to the research center. November is the most recent month with analyzed data available. Chapter 13 filings rose by 12% and made up less than a third of 2009 filings as of November.

More Market Infintalism, High Unemployment, Shrinkage

Posted: January 13 2010
By: Bob Chapman

Fed credit report says Americans now borrowing a lot less, Goldman Sachs fingered for causing the economic crisis, personal bankruptcies soar, mortgage market shrinking, vacancies grow, tax collections shrink, banks create extraordinary means to keep afloat

Americans borrowed less for a 10th consecutive month in November with total credit and borrowing on credit cards falling by the largest amounts on records going back nearly seven decades.

The Federal Reserve said yesterday that total borrowing dropped by $17.5 billion in November, a much bigger decline than the $5 billion decrease economists had expected.

November’s $17.5 billion drop in total credit was the biggest amount in dollars terms since records began in 1943.

That represents an 8.5 percent fall from the October borrowing level. That was the biggest percentage drop since total credit declined 9 percent in May 1980.

Fed and Banks Profits Soar In Economic Downturn

Posted: January 16 2010
By: Bob Chapman

A weak dollar balances nothing, banks taking as much risk as ever, and more, the economy has been eating its own young, Fed makes new credit card rules, significant increase in securities earnings due to Fed response to downturn, pondering the derivative collapse, Obama plans to tax the banks, parasites also profiting wildly, rail traffic still derailed.

We have been told over and over again a weak dollar would build exports and turn our balance of payments deficit down. Well, it hasn’t happened yet.

Goldman Sachs has admitted that they have been front running and opportuning against their clients in the fundamental strategies group, which is not subject to the same regulatory rules that equity research departments are. That is why they are called “Hannibal Lecter” in the business.

They have been setting up clients to take losses so their trading would be profitable. That is like eating your own children. This is the bottom of the moral and ethical totem pole.

Economic Mistakes of Years Ago Repeated Again Today

Posted: January 20 2010
By: Bob Chapman

More bailouts were predicted a year ago, will the unemployed be bailed out indefinitely while jobs and money are exported? Fed has been buying government debt, leverage is in vogue again, Fed blowout profit for 2009, more banks closed, real misery exists far beyond official numbers, state of Illinois exposed.

Last January we predicted that there would be another stimulus program this year. Congress has already passed legislation to continue unemployment benefits, which the Senate will approve as well. Those out of work cannot survive without such assistance, as our transnational conglomerates continue to send our jobs to foreign lands. The question is will the unemployed, as a result, receive benefits indefinitely, as these elitist corporations park their profits in tax havens tax-free?

We Are In A Depression, Not A Recovery

Posted: January 23 2010
By: Bob Chapman

Accept that we are now in a depression, Stock Markets still grossly overvalued, poverty rates increase across midwest, a lots opportunity to regulate the banks,Goldman Sachs reports record profits and still bonusing employees richly, mainstream America goes on a financial diet, suburbs now home to American poor.

Few professionals are yet willing to admit we have been in a depression for the last year. You have to understand the position that economists and analysts are in. They work for corporations, insurance, Wall Street, banking and government and if they thought we were in a depression and they publicly announced that all chances for advancement would be lost or they would be squeezed out of the firm or simply fired. Under such circumstances can you ever expect that you get the truth? We don’t think so. Furthermore the depression we are enveloped in is far from over.

Bailout Recpients Fly Under The Radar While We Remain Exposed

Posted: January 30 2010
By: Bob Chapman

Your assets can be frozen, another reason to hold gold, media requests concerning AIG rescue blocked, China trying to adjust the heat, Bernanke reappointed, Paul Volcker reappears, foreclosures and unemployment still a concern, jump in credit default swaps, airline passenger traffic now flying low.

In the past quarter Verizon eliminated 7,413 jobs to net 222,927.

The SEC now allows money market funds to suspend redemptions, freezing your assets. That rule is designed to push inventors out of money market funds and into US Treasuries and Agency bonds. Anyone whoever had any doubts about the worth of government securities has to now be convinced that their money should be in gold and silver assets. This is the only way to preserve wealth.

Bulls and Bears Sound Off But Fed Reserved

Posted: February 13 2010
By: Bob Chapman

The relationship Goldman-Sachs has with Greece, Obama poses a threat to the Internet, are we to exchange our freedom of the internet for Net Nannies? Large amount of exposure for US banks in financially troubled european countries, China dumps US assets, Bull and Bear Survey,

Under the guise of “protecting Americans” and choosing itself in so-called “national security,” the current Obama administration wants to be able to control the ability of people and organizations to access the Internet.

This concept on its face seems very harmless and in the best interest of the country, however, having the ability to “turn the Internet off or shutting down sites that Obama considers “dangerous” including particular political groups, individuals or organizations who espouse differing views has far reaching political, financial, moral and legal implications.

Such a policy imposed under Executive Order to control what enters Internet sites and what is shared daily would stifle free speech in direct violation of the First Amendment rights of all Americans.

I think Bob Chapman has a lot of good information. I used to get his newsletter for quite a few years and he was right more often than not.

When the major banks collapsed here in the UK a while ago I remember our Prime Minister saying that the government had no idea there was a problem looming. Well, he should have asked me because I knew all about it at least a year before it happened, thanks to Bob Chapman.

Sometime around 1999 I started buying gold from anywhere I could get it, mainly on ebay, because of Bob Chapman. Meanwhile the British Government sold about 60% of our country's gold at the bottom of the market. Since then the price of gold has quadrupled, effectively losing the country billions of pounds.

Anyway, it would be nice to live in a world where money wasn't necessary but until we do then I'm glad some people are telling us the facts and not just government spin.

Economy Stagnant When Action Is What Is Needed

Posted: February 17 2010
By: Bob Chapman

Probable head count in Census around 320 Million, What is Bernanke hiding at the Fed? No end to zero interest rates after 14 months, China to change some things, Greek basket case, California even worse than Greece, home owners stuck with houses worth less than what they paid

When the next census is over America will probably have 320 million people. The number of Americans 50 years ago was about 184 million. Our budget then was about $100 billion. Today it is supposed to be $3.8 trillion. We call that spending gone wild. Government control of the economy has become bigger and all consuming at what will prove to be an unsustainable pace. Markets are telling us the world has serious sovereign debt problems as witnessed recently with the financial debacles in Ireland and now Greece with others to follow. Arrogant government, Fed officials and Wall Street telling us the borrowings are necessary to save our economy, when in fact just the opposite will prove to be true.
Chairman Bernanke tells us inflation expectations are stable and will be subdued for some time to come. Our big questions are what is he hiding at the Fed? Why doesn’t he want an audit? What has the Fed been doing that it doesn’t want us to know about? Could it be the funnel of insider information flowing to Wall Street and banking or the operations of the “Presidents Working Group on Financial Markets”? In their minutes it would be found that inflation is recognized as a friend not an enemy. The independence Mr. Bernanke speaks about is a subterfuge to keep what the Fed is doing away from prying eyes. We do not believe this is any way to run a monetary system.

Bonuses for Wall Street And Unemployment Elsewhere Continue To Grow

Posted: February 24 2010
By: Bob Chapman

The motivations of men in high places, Goldman and Greece, dollar rally will soon end, trillions in debt while Wall Street makes record profits, shareholders pay for fraud proposed market reforms do not go very far, Bonuses greater than ever before on Wall Street, more problem lenders.

People should not underestimate the rational of those in high places because their agenda may be totally different then what they say it is. That includes the predicament of Dubai and Greece and a host of other nations that include the US and UK. The credit crisis, borne of the subprime crisis just didn’t happen; it was planned that way. Are we supposed to believe that the Fed took interest rates close to zero and that they flooded the monetary system with money and credit, because they were incompetent or stupid, hardly? The Fed, banking and Wall Street knew subprime loans were not AAA, but triple BBB. They all knew the syndication of these bonds were a fraud, which they allowed and which kicked off the credit crisis. Again, all is not as it seems to be. Thus, those of you who believe it was greed and incompetence are wrong. Up until four years ago it was Sir Alan Greenspan who sold his soul out to the Illuminists, now it is Ben Bernanke.

Big Players Get Out Of Risk And In To Gold

Posted: February 27 2010
By: Bob Chapman

Who will be the buyers of US bonds? Questionable Fed policy to keep economy afloat, liquidity drain to keep pressure on gold and silver, George Soros putting his money in gold companies, upheaval in currency markets, TARP was to pay out the people responsible, difficulties for small and mid-sized banks.

Excerpt:

The Fed, panic-stricken stock investors and the US public, that's who! The Fed will continue to feed money to foreign banks via currency swaps, this time in secret, and will continue to feed leveraged funds into secret Fed-supported off-shore hedge funds to invest in treasuries and agencies. Then you will see the PPT plunge the stock markets periodically to push money out of those markets into US treasuries. The problem there is, that although investors may buy short-term treasuries because they can't think of anything else on the spot, they are going to be looking for other venues, like gold, silver and commodities, both because the US economy and dollar are going to be looking rather sickly, and because rising interest rates due to an increase in perceived risks is going to destroy bond values. They will hold the bonds while the blood-letting is ongoing to take advantage of the increase in bond prices, but then they are going to have to find another location for their assets in short order when that blood-letting stops, and that means gold and silver. After the stock markets around the world have been bled down to whatever level the PPT is told to bring the markets down to by our shadow government, guess who's next? That's right, the American people and their pensions, 401(k)'s and IRA's. You will be offered the option to buy an annuity from an insurance company, who will fund it's obligations under that annuity, with, well, you guessed it, US treasury bonds. After the government gets its foot in the door with voluntary annuities, you can be sure that mandatory annuities are next. The only problem with these proposed annuities, beside abysmal rates of return, is that after the US government goes bankrupt, the US treasuries will be worthless and the insurance companies will be unable to deliver on their annuities, leading them into bankruptcy and further government takeover, and leaving you with a big goose egg for retirement income. That is where we are headed unless you take action to stop them.

Economic Downturn hits Lenders and Borrowers Alike

Posted: March 3, 2010
By: Bob Chapman

Commercial real estate in trouble, lenders will be hit as hard as borrowers, Greece suffers heavily during downturn, Germany wont buy any more greek sovereign debt, M3 and M4 down to nothing, China remains as largest holder of US debt. IMF comments on US dollar, debt problems in Florida and California, child labor at factories that supply Apple computers

We are not going to go into the lurid details regarding residential and commercial real estate, but we are going to give you some highlights. We began telling subscribers to sell real estate in June of 2005, long before anyone else. We picked the top just as we did in September 1988 at the top.

Residential real estate won’t hit bottom until 2013 and who knows how long it will bump along the bottom. At the end of the year we have a whole new generation of sub prime and ALT-A mortgages coming due for reset. In addition there are the pick and pay loans that are in trouble, and 52% of problems lie, if you can believe it, in prime loans. Residential real estate countrywide is off 32% with a number of areas off 50% or more. In the next two years that national figure will show losses of 45% to 50%, and the former 30 hot city markets will be off 50% to 70%. We predicted this in November of 2004. All the savings of America for three generations of Americans will be lost, and these same Americans will be saddled with horrendous amounts of debt spawned by our Wall Street controlled Treasury and the Federal Reserve. These are the bankers who have robbed you and will continue to rob you until you are destitute and enslaved.

China holds more U.S. debt than numbers indicate

Posted by Matt Hawes on 03/02/10 11:52 AM

From The Washington Times:

Quote:
"The U.S. Treasury data almost certainly understate Chinese holdings of our government debt because [the U.S. figures] do not reveal the ultimate country of ownership when [debt] instruments are held through an intermediary in another jurisdiction," Simon Johnson, an economics professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, told the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission, a bipartisan forum established by Congress in 2000 to monitor the security implications of the U.S. economic relationship with China....

China’s Hidden Debt Risks 2012 Crisis, Northwestern’s Shih Says

By Bloomberg News

March 3 (Bloomberg) -- China’s hidden borrowing may push government debt to 96 percent of gross domestic product next year, increasing the risk of a financial crisis in the world’s third-biggest economy, Professor Victor Shih said.

“The worst case is a pretty large-scale financial crisis around 2012,” said Shih, a political economist at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, who spent months researching borrowing transactions by about 8,000 local-government entities. “The slowdown would last at least two years and maybe longer,” the author of the book “Factions and Finance in China” said in a phone interview March 1.

China’s PMI numbers for February were released yesterday and received surprisingly little media attention. Although I am usually not keen to slice and dice single-month statistics too intensely, the latest suite of manufacturing indices does seem to warrant more than cursory attention.

Firstly, a summary of the numbers as provided by the China Federation of Logistics & Purchasing (CFLP) and reported by the Li & Fung Group.

The Albatross of Sovereign Debt

Posted: March 6 2010
By: Bob Chapman

Sovereign Debt hinders nation states, Interrogations for the Fed to answer, debt burdened California, Fed integrity in question, Gold still a good investment play, unemployment benefits for now, volatile swings in housing demand,

Sovereign debt hangs like an albatross around the necks of too many countries. There are 17 medium-size to large countries that are close to, or are bankrupt. Many are being kept solvent by using two sets of books and by marking to model. As you know we expect these bankruptcies to take place by the end of 2011. That will be accomplished at meetings such as we saw in the 1970s at the Smithsonian, the Plaza Accord of 1985 and the Louvre Accord of 1987. There will be a realignment of currencies.

Pondering Our Collapse While We Watch Others Fall

Posted: March 10, 2010
By: Bob Chapman

The current dollar rally wont endure, questions for the future of the Euro, No collapse of currency overnight, but we see it coming, record low interest rates drive bond purchases, Fed will continue to feed the economy, the threat is deflationary depression, China continues to dump dollars, US in a box, Fannie and Freddie bondholders should not hold their breath, unemployed are also exhausted...

Every important factor we see is working against the dollar and we believe that trend is irreversible. That means the present dollar rally probably cannot endure and it could well be the time to short the USDX.

Excerpt:

Quote:
We see a general contraction of credit worldwide and unless reversed the inevitable will unfold. What is even more dangerous than in the 1930s is the enormous leverage that exists today. When this comes down it will be with a thundering roar. That is because few have the ability to pay. It is totally inconceivable that the US government can pay back its liabilities. That means that other nations that hold 60-1/2% of their foreign exchange in US dollars will take tremendous losses from which they won’t easily recover. China and Japan, along with Middle East oil producers, will take unbelievable losses. All creditors will be big losers.

US Federal Reserve Dealing in Magic and Secrets

Posted: March 13 2010
By: Bob Chapman

Fed makes money out of thin air to solve deflation with inflation, credit crisis continues, frustrations with politicians, not healthy to have over 3 trillion in t-bills held in foreign hands, Fed fights audit legislation, Threats to the Eurozone...

Excerpt:

Quote:
The financial system in America is on the edge of default. A recent poll found that 92% of those surveyed wanted to unseat their current representative or Senator in Washington and only 21% believed that government enjoyed the consent of the governed. It’s very obvious people are not happy with the political, economic and financial situation presently. Eighty percent believe that government is enmeshed in partisan infighting. Not only between parties, but within parties as well. Politicians are very aware of these numbers and are frantic to get reelected. The public has recoiled in disgust. People are demanding that the power of government be curbed. People are sick and tired of paid off corrupt politicians, more than half of whom have been in office for more than ten years.

Expose Transgressions and Set Boundaries on Stimulus Packages

Posted: March 17 2010
By: Bob Chapman

AIG dragged onto the carpet for publishing falsified debt ratings, fines called for when fraud charges should be laid, white collar crime knows no end, books cooked, real estate downside points to deflationary depression, debt continues to grow, borrowing in the debt market again. stimulus packages knowing now boundaries.

The past week the Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal sued Moody’s Investors Services and Standard & Poor’s over falsified debt ratings. This suit is the first of its kind against rating agencies under the state’s unfair trade practices law. The AG is seeking penalties and fines that could reach into billions of dollars.

We in this publication have asked for three years why no civil or criminal charges were not brought against these raters, but also against the banks, brokerage firms and the Federal Reserve, which colluded with them in this scam that cost investors worldwide trillions of dollars? These bonds are the collateralized debt obligations, which the Fed purchased from financial institutions over the past year to the tune of $868 billion, which the American taxpayer will have to pay the losses on.

The Impact of Bubbles And The Future of Risk

Posted: March 20 2010
By: Bob Chapman

Bubbles of years ago being felt today, why rescue people from their mistakes? Destructive economic processes at work, many countries on the verge of bankruptcy, America now holds debt far beyond its ability to pay back, Debasement the order of the day, Bill Gross of PIMCO looks to developing nations for stability...

There was no turning back after June 2003. The last bubble was in the process of being created. The collapse of real estate, both residential and commercial, had been put in place and their fateful journey had begun. The credit expansion had begun and there would be no stopping it until it had run its course. Currently the credit crisis is in its initial 30th month with a possible end in sight. If quantitative easing is withdrawn, money and credit is dramatically reduced and interest rates are increased, deflation will start to make headway. In today’s circumstances we have a sovereign debt crisis, which is worsening. You put all this together, and in the absence, further stimulation of one form or another, the world could easily fall into a deflationary depression.

Everyone wants to be rescued from their mistakes and that simply can’t happen. In the meantime to finance this illusion they both go deeper and deeper into debt.

Europe is far more advanced into their destructive process. The euro zone is headed toward dissolution and perhaps the European Union as well.

A Rise in Unemployment And Moral Hazard To Contend With

Posted: March 24 2010
By: Bob Chapman

Bubbles come and go but the Fed remains, derivative madness, no good sense for liquidity, tariffs can turn the world, moral hazard in the media spotlight, fence building now to keep out the drug war in Mexico, flush with cash but actually insolvent...

Excerpt:

Quote:
If we hadn’t left the gold standard on 8/15/71 we wouldn’t be in the fix we are in today. We do not have that standard, but after all else has collapsed we will then again regain that standard. We no longer have free markets and continued injections of liquidity will not work, only purging the system will work and its time is fast drawing to such a conclusion. Remember you cannot understand how this game works, unless you can understand the criminal Illuminist mind and their past history. Once you understand the rest is simple.

PeaceandLove? I'm curious...I enjoy reading your posts. I don't comment on all of them because:
A) yours are fast and furious when your on a roll

B)My typos are embarrasing and I look like a "dolt" when I try to be serious.

C) My points are'nt usally as valid as others that post here.


Question? Where's our little buddy Barny Frank been during all this?

Is He:

A) Hiding because he was disappointed a Kennedy in his State was replaced by a Republican that has no real track record and Barney did not call him to say "welcome" regardless of party?

B) Embarrassed that he DID"NT call Kennedy's replacement for congrats even though the replacement voted Democrat?

C) Happy ANY attention away from Barney is good for the country?
"Quiet Barney" "Shhhhh" "Lay Low untill after the vote"

I'm just sayin.......

Thoughts?
Remember, I'm not a teabagger,a republican or democrat..
As Grouch Marx said "I'd never belong to a club that would have me as a member."

Except maybe Camelot/Avalon

All points are valid shybastid because YOU are valid.

Here is a recent interview of Barney Frank

Ken Pittman vs. Barney Frank 3/23/2010
VIDEO Part 1 of 3:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f5pUb_iR_Dk




Early on in this 3/24/2010 interview at http://www.discountgoldandsilvertrading.net/

MP3 (1 Hour): http://libertyarchives.com/farlive/FS2_WED.MP3

Jim Roger's statements are quoted by the guest host regarding the Euro breaking in the next 15 to 20 years.

Chapman says he's been watching Rogers for 40 years.

"He's a disinformation specialist."

He does not agree with Jim's methodology and he doesn't agree with his disinformation.

Chapman states: "If the Euro goes down, it's going to go down in the next two years."



HALFWAY through the interview Bob comments on Ron Paul's recent statement that ObamaCare will be repealed by a national bankruptcy.




Very end of the interview before Bob is cut off and after Alfred comes back:

Bob and Alfred are talking about our government declaring us all to be animals.

Drug laws passed in 1971 by Nixon based on a definition of drugs that presumes people to be animals.

Evidence of a pagan religion being imposed upon the people.

Discussing the sale of body parts to pay bills.

It's not an accident that government wants us reduced to the status of animals.

One of the reasons is the Declaration of Independence (all men created equal and endowed by their creator with unalienable rights)

UN-A-LIEN-ABLE???

All the medical bills (Health Care Bill) will be based on the presumption that we are livestock, that we are not men and women made in God's image.

Tide turning?

Gold and Silver up.

US Treasury auctions were keeping gold and silver down.

Rigging of markets...

Is Kitco an appendage of the US government?

Dollar correction?
