    Did Greenspan actually advise the Persian Gulf Arab nations to sever the USDollar peg to their currencies? Yes, he did! In doing so, he shows more Swiss stripes. This man has taken residence where his loyalty originated for perhaps 20 years, in Europe. His second paycheck by the Swiss Uber-bankers did not receive proper scrutiny. What was his objective? Now the Arab sheiks can cut their US$ peg and use Greenspan for political cover. The impact on the USDollar on the downside, and gold on the upside, will be profound. The Petro-Dollar has not received proper press coverage. Has any analyst except the Jackass mentioned the risk to the USDollar from the eventual lost US$ peg, followed by a removal of the Petro-Dollar standard?

    For the first time in my memory, an interviewed expert guest described the US financial situation as moving toward a Banana Republic. Dan Mitchell is a senior fellow of the Heritage Foundation. He advocates reduced taxation, smaller and less intrusive government involvement, and more. He advocates supply side tax policy and fundamental tax reform

    by Jim Willie, [/url]

    I have read several articles following the Fed testimony that are out and out scary. They believe the Fed is either clueless about what the impact of inflation is going to have or it is deliberate to save the banking institutions (international ones)and the wealth of the elite (again international) even if the nation is sacrificed. Many believe there will be no way to save the dollar if this trend continues.

    We have to remember that the Federal Reserve is a private corporation and not an arm of government. While their is government oversight, all the appointees to the government's oversight board come from people who were in the private corporation's network. While the people in that network are not all closely linked to the international banking cartel that controls the key Fed banks like the N.Y. Federal Reserve, they are influenced by it.

    Look at the membership of the CFR, for example and the links to banking, large corporations and politicians.
