What is the Federal Reserve’s end goal? Follow the money and you will find no intention of tapering, out of control public debt, and financial steroids for stocks. Fed balance sheet up $55 billion in one week.

The Federal Reserve is known for producing convoluted and purposely hard to decipher messages.  The media is driven by what the Federal Reserve says but fails to analyze what is truly happening.  The Fed is driving in a car with no brakes.  This is clear given that the Fed balance sheet increased by $55 billion […]

Means-Tested recovery: Over 108,000,000 Americans received means-tested benefits in latest report from Census Bureau, more than are currently employed full-time.

The US cannot avoid a soft default even if a hard default is avoided: Debt ceiling already breached and US Treasury operating in emergency mode while US is paying $415 billion in annual interest expenses.

Nothing left to financially lose: Biggest drop in confidence since Lehman Brothers and why some are unmoved by government shutdown.
