News organizations and Congress have not yet realized the purposes to which infinite money may be put and so haven't begun questioning all the money being flung around.

Fed Is Just One Part Of Much Bigger Scam: My Two-Loop Theory - By Dick Eastman, 3-25-8
The global elite are international and they own the debt of the world. The Fed is the institution. It is the link between the elite international loop and the domestic debt-slavery tax-slavery loop of M1 money. (The plebian loop is that of the domestic commercial banks, their regulation by the Fed, their system for creating demand deposits by making loans under a fractional reserve system and the ability to borrow from the Fed at the discount window.)

Nino Galloni: «Circa 400mila famiglie faticano con il mutuo Ma le banche sono furbe e l’allarme qui non c’è» - Fabio Sebastiani, Liberazione, 25 marzo 2008
Noi abbiamo due problemi, ovvero la produzione di moneta è stata demandata alla Bce, quindi è ovvio che il grosso della moneta è quella creditizia. Se le banche non la producono il sistema si blocca. Le aziende e le famiglie sono indebitate a garanzia dei prestiti e quindi le banche possono diventare padrone di tutto

BANKS: Bleeding Value And Hiding Desperation - by Ronald R. Cooke, Financial Sense, March 24, 2008
Under existing accounting rules, Banks can cook the books by claiming income long before actual cash comes in the door. Option loan income includes interest which has not been paid, but merely added to the balance of the loan. Earnings from mortgage backed securities can be booked as income long before they are earned. Banks have considerable flexibility when it comes to identifying the status of bad debt. Add these items up, and a bank may face asset losses that exceed reserve capital

The Die is Cast, The Cast Will Die - Darryl Robert Schoon, 321gold, Mar 24, 2008

Alice in Wonderland - Peter Schiff, 321gold, Mar 21, 2008
In the early stages of the biggest credit crunch in U.S. history, buying shares in Visa, a company that derives its revenues based on transaction fees from credit card purchases, qualifies as a particularly ill- timed investment.

It is hard to see how these deficits can be financed even if wholesale funding routes are reopened. If they are not, the consequences for sterling, the housing market and ultimately the public finances could be catastrophic.”

National Guard units are training and preparing for urban combat. The United States has just reached an agreement with Canada’s armed forces to come in to this country and assume combat roles should they be needed in American cities and towns........

Fingendo che la carta straccia abbia un valore, Trichet sta ovviamente salvando in grande la finanza a spese dell’industria, gli usurai a spese degli operai.

Lord Bryce: "Democracy has no more persistent and insidious foe than money powers. Questions regarding Bank of England, its conduct and its objects, are not allowed by the Speaker" (of the House of Commons).

"E si osserva anche ciò che meglio di ogni altra cosa può dare la misura della situazione attuale: il dilagare del "metodo mafioso" a tutta la società, la penetrazione progressiva del modello del ricatto, della minaccia, dell'avvertimento. La scomparsa progressiva della "giustificazione", che lascia il posto alla pura forza.
Al fondo di ogni trauma, di ogni episodio di terrorismo organizzato, di ogni manovra di potere o di corruzione politica, scavando, si trova uno sportello bancario."
- Lombard, "Soldi Truccati", ed. Feltrinelli, 1980, pag. 11

"Non appena pervenne alle nostre orecchie che a cagione di una nuova controversia (precisamente se un certo contratto si debba giudicare valido) si venivano diffondendo per l’Italia alcune opinioni che non sembravano conformi ad una saggia dottrina, ritenemmo immediatamente che spettasse alla Nostra Apostolica carica apportare un rimedio efficace ad impedire che questo guaio, con l’andar del tempo e in silenzio, acquistasse forze maggiori; e bloccargli la strada perché non si estendesse serpeggiando a corrompere le città d’Italia ancora immuni."
- Benedictus PP. XIV, enciclica Vix Pervenit, Roma, 1 Novembre 1745

As Winston Churchill pointed out to Lord Robert Boothby. “The unforgivable crime of Germany, before the second world war, was her attempt to extricate its economic power from the world’s trading system and create its own exchange mechanism which would deny world finance its opportunity to profit”.

“The crisis takes a much longer time coming than you think, and then it happens much faster than you would have thought.” 
- Rudiger Dornbusch, MIT Economist
