I think they're just trying to get it out of the country and exchanged for a more stable currency, at this point.

Well.. "inflation is transitory"

Except..

They've inflated money/debt at least 20x (2000%).. and, add another $40B to that.. it's not going to stop. This is Wiemar 2.0.. When the price of your ordinary commodities catches up to 2000%, be sure to let me know that inflation is over..

The zogfags are up to their same old tricks..

Their raiding our piggy bank to put it in their back pockets. Something tells me this is the last call for the swamp before the music stops.

Maybe their intention might be to steal the election again from Trump in 2024, but more likely they’re just cashing out all their “winnings” before handing over a bankrupt casino to the new “owner.”

I think they are trying to crash it before the November. The democrats cannot let those elections happen. Crash the economy = suspended elections. If it's not the economy then it will be some other catastrophe that will allow them to be suspended.

Just out of curiosity, What asset is actually tracking real inflation and has the same amount of liquidity as cash?

I see market rate gold is just above where it was in 2011, crypto is slumped, stocks are bad, bonds are still a bad deal, and real estate prices are collapsing.

TrumpoWon2020 2 points ago +2 / -0

I bonds are paying 10% interest and are liquid again after 12 months. Unfortunately you can only buy $10,000 for yourself per year and receive another $10,000 as a gift. So if you're married that's $40,000 a year.

That's the only inflation proof investment since the interest rate is designed to match inflation rate. Other than that nothing will match inflation.

I remember Dave on the X22 report saying several times that the banks keep throwing paper contracts and gold to keep it from increasing in price.

5
BaronFalcon 5 points ago +5 / -0

That is true about gold, except 2011 was a serious high that dipped pretty hard to $1000/oz. Current price is a small dip after a near all time high last month, and we are still $850/oz higher than the bottom of the dip in 2015. However, I do feel like gold is being manipulated and should be higher. Regardless, I trust metals way more than crypto. While it might not track perfectly with inflation, when everything crashes it should be a lot better hedge than anything else IMO. Additionally, I wouldn't say real estate is crashing, it is slowing down.

This 40 billion is earmarked for UniParty off-shore accounts. There is no audits, no questions asked by both sides where the money goes and members of Congress want to get on committees where they can tap into those funds. It is just like the covid scam, money funneled to radical leftist programs and agencies which are intent on destroying this country and the middle class. Congress is a criminal cartel that lust for money and power and with Biden the sky is the limit. 40 billion now and in a few months they will want another 40 billion and it never stops. The collapse of this economy is imminent and Republicans want to get their cut before it does and sign anything that the Dems put in front of them.

illmatic_diplomat 8 points ago +8 / -0

At the rate the FED keeps minting and printing new money to flood the market, holding artificially low interest rates, during historic inflationary times mixed with shrinking economy, zero growth plan road map, record job market loss and produced goods, negative yield on real wages, while simultaneously, rise in cost of living with growing dependence on foreign imports as global supply chain crumble and our border is surged with millions of illegals due to open door policies to welcome more.

Well you get it, but at this rate. We’re all going to be millionaires soon, but not the good kind of way you’d want, thanks to all that above and more for a devalued base currency and the De-dollarization underway by world governments continue.

The collapse the USD is in full swing.

TrumpoWon2020 5 points ago +5 / -0

Except employers aren't paying more money, certainly no where close to match inflation and cost of living increases. So the only people who will be able to afford a mortgage and but food are current millionaires. Everyone else will starve.

It is all by design and they have bigger things in order. The Deep State plans like the Chinese, 10, 25 year plans and we are in a 10 year plan to break the system and crash the economy and currency and let a depression simmer to destroy the middle class further to make us even more demoralized. Allow crime to go unchecked and create multiple crisis for a few years and then when it breaks, they will provide the solution under their terms. It will be a matter of a few years when you won't recognize this country as America. Rigged elections come with a price tag and Congress played a huge part in selling out this great Republic.

This money will be tied into Chyna someway and when Chyna starts invading Taiwan the UniParty will tell the American people who we owe the money to and they will make us shut up about defending our ally. It will be like Ukraine, if you don't support Chyna you are anti-democratic because we owe Chyna 40+ billion which is tied into the little guy's 401k and what is good for Wall Street is good for Main Street, so shut up peasants and let the elected criminals do their jobs of fleecing American and build back broke.

They could care less if a generation of American children grow up without prenatal vitamins or baby formula as long as the UniParty can write billion dollar checks and they can sift off a hundred million for the establishment. Our country has become a third world banana republic and other countries will soon be saying "you don't want our country to end up like America." Stolen elections have massive consequences.

The Great Reset needed to raid the coffers of Western governments to fund their agenda and the Democrats have acquired the funding to keep their radical agenda sustainable regardless of who is in the WH. For Build Back Better to work, you need to destroy the existing structure down to the studs and rebuild it with the DNA of the Democrat/Communism so it will never resemble a Republic again. They are well on their way to doing it and this 40 billion will give a big boost to their stakeholders in the Great Reset.

TrumpoWon2020 5 points ago +5 / -0

To be frank the stock market was massively overvalued. All these fucking tech companies that went up by 2x, 3x, even more in just the span of 1-2 years was ludicrous. The stock price didn't reflect any tangible value increase in the companies. It was all just speculative.

There are lots of other underlying problems with our economy but even a blind man could see that stock values were far higher than they should have been. It became nothing but fairy dust and magic. None of those companies saw net annual revenues jump by remotely as much as their stock prices did.

potbelliedgoblino 2 points ago +2 / -0

While the ships were built to spend 25 years at sea, many of those on the water are in the infancy of their naval careers. That includes the USS St. Louis, now in its third year of service life; the USS Billings and USS Indianapolis, in their fourth years; and the USS Sioux City and USS Wichita, in their fifth, according to a Navy information paper for Congress obtained by Bloomberg News. The Navy spent $5 billion in taxpayer money getting the ships built and outfitted. But in justifying the early retirement, the service says eight of the Lockheed-built “Freedom-class” vessels were meant to carry anti-submarine warfare equipment developed by Raytheon Technologies Corp. that failed in development. Promises to give the ships capability for anti-submarine warfare were 12 years late when the plan was abandoned this year.

When the coldwar ended, all the defense contractors consolidated into a handful of behemoths that were 'too big to fail.' contractors who didn't adapt by joining bigger teams and amping thier DC fuckery to get boondoggle contracts fell by the wayside. All the legit defense money dried up. Only fuckery stayed in the budgets.

The increasingly immobile and inflexible monoliths, instead of being allowed to die from their failures to deliver on wild assed promisses, were given passes, allowed to fail repeatedly and even given the power to write rules the military must follow when awarding contracts. A quota hire general who's been in aquisition for 3 months and is drowning will be all too happy to let a contractor rep 'help them out" with some friendly advice over cocktails and diner, paid for by you know who.

The only thing more lucrative than holding a congressional seat for 20 or 30yrs is wearing general stars for only a few, just before retirement. And that pipeline has been every bit as thoroughly corrupted if not more so than Congress.

From end of the coldwar on, only bullshit contracts have been drempt up, funded and paid out. And of course only the game playing contractors get to stay in business. And post GWOT, forget about it. If its anything more than a way for Congress to spend money they individually get a piece of, it ain't happening. Nothing is need based anymore. It's all about spending money on bullshit that gets the budget writers and decision makers paid.

Been this way since the start of the first Clinton admin. Only reason people see it now is because we've finally reached epic levels of full retard that can no longer be hidden along this never ending march to oblivion.

The supposed rebirth of purpose driven existence immediately following Sept 11th was nothing more than an acceleration of the fuckery and massive increases in the budgets. Results and real capabities continued racing to the bottom. Everything accomplished during GWOT was accomplished in spite of supervision.

Especially after 08, when they stopped even pretending to want some kind of closure bringing win. They didn't want to accomplish anything at all at that point but wanted to keep spending money they knew they could get a piece of. Trump, knowingly or unknowingly was closing off taps. The powers who were had no choice but to rig 2020, for them it was a question of survival. The upheaval within the defense industry brought on by trump's 2016 win was glorious. The rank and file loved it. Management and their psychofants were shitting bricks for 4yrs. The vax mandates were part revenge, part loyalty test and part purge.

This Ukraine shit is everything bush was accused of and more. Bush was no saint, but 90% of what he took heat for was what the Dems were planning to do themselves once in power. Rino's with sticky fingers don't even hold a candle to the outright criminality of team democrat. But we've gone way past the point at which they all needed to go.

LCS = Little Crappy Ships

They were never a good idea for our Navy's primary missions.

1
Aambrick 1 point ago +1 / -0

Cruisers and Destroyers with Mass drivers fitted to their size and power output would be best since the ones meant for cruiser size uses 5 MW at the upper most limit with a power generating capacity around 10 MW - 20 MW. Ones the size of a destroyer would take around 2 MW at most which means enough for battleship damage, but not strong enough for land or aerial takedowns from a distance. Maybe if combining a high speed rotary with the mini-mass driver would get the same effect, but that would require more research and material understanding.

I would say Cruisers with HFCM(Hydrogen Fuel Cell Motor) would fit with power generation if combined with another system to generate the hydrogen if not using Nuclear since they would be on their primary source for power.

In fact Cruisers combined with Low level Mass Drivers(meaning what we see currently being considered) would be a much better use of money since their range is far greater with higher ammo capacity. If that ammo is capable of fragmentation then that allows a variety of roles to be played since the sheer speed is around Mach 5-Mach 20.

Would work well with Aerial transporters(Carriers). Cruisers could be designed under a standard template design as well. Aside from that the fact that they are doing this without having those in production.

I read something twenty years ago that said China was outfitting freighters with vertical missile cells, sounds like a good idea to try out. We could load up a lot of missiles on a freighter and hide them to get up close.

1
Aambrick 1 point ago +1 / -0

Depends on Freighters. Either get the biggest or get the most numerous. The most numerous would be the easiest to get through for 2 reasons:

  1. It would be a common sight meaning complacency as well as a well known quantity.

  2. Because there is so much just a few would be easy to refit into another role. Because 1 will feed 2.

Either way China had the right idea, but what would the point be when they could take everything economically. They just had to control the top to get what they want.

To be fair, the LCS program was a colossal goatfuck from the getgo. The ships don’t work, they cost fuckloads of money, they can’t fight, they can’t take a hit, and half of them have severe dissimilar-metals corrosion problems when they float in saltwater. The Navy already scrapped half its cruisers and all of its frigates to pay for the fucking things, and cancelled the next-gen cruiser project in favor of the LCS and equally-disappointing Zumwalt class. Shitcanning the Little Crappy Ships won’t recover the money already lost or fill the massive gap in capability from trying to replace cruisers and frigates with half-ass corvettes, but it least no more good money will be thrown after bad.

Unfortunately, all the money saved is just going straight to Zelensky’s Eastern Laundry, Inc.

I'm fully convinced that the illegally installed Biden Regime's main goal is to completely weaken the entire country.

They're fighting the United States (especially normal citizens) more than any other country ever could!

So are they gonna sell that shit or what? I want a boat. A big one. Let's turn one into a cruise ship. We can see the Bahamas and Alaska and get paid literally by the boatload. We'll have fishing and a driving range and a waterslide and pool and a bar and all that shit. We'll paint it red, we'll rename the boat the USS Trump Won, and drinks will be half price for anyone wearing a MAGA hat.

USS Kitty Hawk and Kennedy sold to scrappers, not handed over to a group that had funding and wanted to turn it into a museum...because reasons.

General Milley and Lloyd along with Congress destroying our military and making us weak and vulnerable. Only a small portion of that 40 billion will ever reach Ukraine and the rest will fund a color revolution in eastern europe and the rest will go into slush funds set aside for the UniParty. Another endless war to steal money from the American taxpayers. One money laundering scam after another -- rona scam (Big Pharma stock portfolios), military industrial complex stocks, and then the Green New Steal and Global warming.

Our Congress will produce the first billionaires based solely on working for the government (John Kerry married into a billionaire family, Heinz but has increased his worth by a 100 million working as a public official)

Congress is getting really greedy and now they don't even need to hide the grift, they do it right in front of us and they know there are no checks and balances in place to stop them because the entire government is made up of criminals and traitors.

VoidWanderer 2 points ago +3 / -1

There weren't very many checks and balances to begin with. Congress writes the same laws they're meant to follow and write exemptions for themselves into them all the time. The mentality was the people were supposed to keep them in check, but the founders didn't realize just how lazy the masses really were.

Tune-A-Fish 1 point ago +1 / -0

No agency adits the government and millions will get lost in the exchange and it will fund their radical programs and when a UniParty member retires they dip into the slush fund and give them some nice parting gifts/book deals/speaking engagements. They know how the system works and as long as you play your role, you will become a very rich person.

Congress is a criminal organization and they don't hide it anymore, insider trading, open deals with foreign governments, the only thing that will get you in trouble is when you don't play along with the rules of the Washington establishment.

It's almost as if the military industrial complex runs everything and they need new reason to ramp up production on new arms to keep the wheels spinning.

I've not seen anyone here mention anything about how Biden e-enacted the lend-lease act from WW2, which means the US will supply Ukraine with unlimited arms going forward.

The aid means the US gets to get rid of its "old stock," and as a result keep production going churning out more, and developing new stuff as well.

It's just a multi-trillion dollar business, the largest in the world.

Because the LCS is such a useless piece of shit that even they don’t want it.

But Bush and Obama cancelled lots of new cruisers, destroyers, and frigates to buy more of these goddamn things.

3
henri_derelicte 3 points ago +3 / -0

Defense procurement is such a clusterfuck, and it goes back to the Clinton era even.

We developed an advanced submarine, the Seawolf class, but balked at the high price tag, which results in the less expensive and capable Virginia class. We develop the B-2 stealth bomber, but the high price results in us only acquiring 20 of them when we originally planned to buy 100. Then there’s the Zumwalt class destroyer, which was supposed to provide long range gunfire support. The price of the ship and the cannons balloons, and we only acquire 3 instead of 30, and the guns for them were ultimately cancelled.

We planned to replace the Perry class frigates with the LCS, only to waffle on which class of LCS to go with. Regardless, they conclude both classes don’t have enough armor and protection, so modifications are made. The planned mission modules never come to fruition, making them less capable than planned. Trump administration ultimately says fuck it, gets the Europeans involved, since they have a better and more recent track record with building frigates, resulting in the upcoming Constellation class. But you still have the LCS production lines active, and two classes of LCS that are nowhere close to being uniform within the class. What a mess.

LCS is what happens when you let defense contractors run amok. Freedom-class gearboxes literally don’t work AND you can’t replace them without disassembling the entire engine room. Ill be damned if that contract wasn’t won by corruption.

I promise you they are correct. But now total $50+B-BILLION for Ukraine works for McConnell-McCarthy, Inc. THIS is why Trump had to scavenge the rest. Again with McConnellMcCarthy, let alone marxist shivs at his spine.
