Palin ‘Deeply Concerned’ About Fed’s Decision To Purchase Government Debt

November 15, 2010 by  

Palin 'deeply concerned' about Fed's decision to purchase government debtIn response to the Federal Reserve's announcement that it will purchase up to $900 billion in Treasury bonds by June 2011 in an effort to stimulate the economy, Sarah Palin has voiced her concerns.

According to The Huffington Post, the former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate is urging Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke to "cease and desist" the central bank's attempt to jumpstart the economy in that way. In prepared remarks that Palin was set to deliver in front of a trade association in Phoenix, she said she is "deeply concerned" with the plan of "printing [money] out of thin air."

The news provider reports that Palin's statements will likely appeal to Tea Party supporters who are suspicious of the Federal Reserve, which creates the money that goes into circulation in the United States.

Members of the Fed are divided about the commitment to buy up to $900 billion in government debt. One side believes the purchase could lead to asset bubbles and runaway inflation, while supporters claim that there is too much of a risk of another recession to not act.

According to Bloomberg, Richard Fisher, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, said that the large-scale Treasury purchases are "the wrong medicine for the ailment from which our economy is suffering." During a speech on Nov. 8, Fisher projected that the central bank's decision could ultimately weaken the dollar.

    Where are they going to get the money for this? Sarah says that they are printing oney out of thin air, but how will we pay this money back? I think what will happen (my opinion) is that Obama bin Laden will let the Bush tax cuts expire so he can get the money he needs inorder to perform such an action. Let’s hope they don’t go through with it. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

    • Al Sieber

      samurai, they’re gonna tax the hell out of us on everything, and add more regulations and rules for more revenue.

      • who cares

        May be but it wont be by democrats. republican are the obstructionist they are one that let american companies leave the usa at the same time republicans are given them tax breaks. in other words they don’t pay taxes for goods sent back to the us. camero are made in canada are they not? stop drinking koolaid

        • http://naver samurai

          You really need to get off of the lib crack. Quit bothering us with these rants and cite your sources and state some real facts. I have one for you that will make you worry about your “messiah” Obama bin Laden. The patriots in Congress and the Senate just passed the legislation banning earmarks. Another victory for the U.S.A.! FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

          • meteorlady

            May be but it wont be by democrats. “republican are the obstructionist they are one that let american companies leave the usa at the same time republicans are given them tax breaks.”

            Please let me give you a lesson on business. I used to do business in Washington State. Had 20 employees. They have always been liberal to some extent but it got worse and worse and I was being taxed to death. So I paid more use fees, regulations were astronomical, and my city, county and state taxes kept going up every year.

            Three years ago, almost four now, I moved my business to Texas. I have less taxes, less regulation and I was able to hire 2 more employees. Along come the Democrats with their health care “reform”. My employee sponsored health care premiums go up around 17% in 2011 because of the “added mandatory coverage requirements” in the new health care bill. Now I have some options: raise my prices (not good in this economy); stop providing health care to my employees (looking pretty viable right now since it will probably keep going up); or just lay off the 2 people I gained when I moved here.

            That my friend is what happens to US business that move out of the country. They are over taxed, over regulated and can’t make up for the high union wages and health care costs they are required to pay.

            Now, you mentioned the Camaro. A few weeks ago we started looking for a new car. Drove a GM and found it to be lacking in a lot of extras that others cars in the same class had so it was off the list. They we looked at the Ford Edge and the Kia Sorento. The Ford Edge was around $10,000 more sticker than the Kia so we started investigating as to whether there was that much value in the Edge. Found that it was mostly bells and whistles, most of which we didn’t need. The Ford Edge was also made in Ontario, Canada. The Kia was made in a plant in Georgia which Kia just opened. They are assembled there of 53% US made parts, plus the engine, and the transmission is made in Korea. We choose the Kia because Americans are working because of it.

            Point is if Kia can do this, why can’t GM, Ford and Chrysler do it? Unions…….. and a better business environment in Georgia.

      There is no intent of paying this money back! That’s the whole point. Additionally, as I pointed out last year in “The Last Days of the Late Great United States” we say that they are just printing money out of thin air, but in today’s artificial world, with artificial food, and artificial vitamins, and artificial money, it isn’t even necessary to print money. That would be counterfeiting if we did it but the FED’s Treasury can just enter numbers in a computer and viola, an extra 75 thousand million this month and next and so on till next summer. Who can stop them? Congress is mostly controlled by them or heavily influenced. Congress under that ancient document (the Constitution) that George Soros and the Democratic Socialists want replaced, was responsible for the money a century ago but in 1913 under the Sith Lord known as Woodrow Wilson and while many in Congress had gone home for Christmas, passed the legislation to start a new bank, established and then owned by mostly Europeans, what we call the Federal Reserve Bank, to do it for them. Income tax was passed to pay them for what they were doing. As long as congress (small letters as they don’t deserve to be capitalized in my opinion) was in charge we had problems but they were relatively compared to what is happening today and what happened in 1929. Prior to the beginning of the FED senators represented each state but they were harder to control from a national standpoint. Each appointed senator wanted what was best for his state (it was a good ole’ boys club then as Wilson even opposed women voting). The powers that be knowing that a pure democracy was easier to control than the checks and balances that the founding fathers put in place succeeded in fostering and promoting a change in the Constitution that allowed that senators would no longer be appointed but elected just like the House of Representatives. This gave the states less power to dictate what the ‘controllers’ wanted in Washington and Wall Street as many senators now receive funding from sources outside their states (Harry Reid’s recent re-election was in part funded by hundreds of millions that poured into his basket-case state (the highest unemployment in the nation) from the heads of the unions who support him. There are many parallels to the Republic in the fictional STAR WARS series. There Senator Palpatine manipulated events to bring about an empire. Here events are being manipulated to bring about a world financial system and inflation is a necessary part of the great and terrible investments that banks have called derivatives. In my autobiography four and a half years ago I pointed out that they were then worth more than 300 TRILLION DOLLARS and growing almost exponentially. In my more recent book I point out that number is much higher, more than the value of the entire planet, and they will not be profitable to the banks without big inflation. Deflation which the banks fear is only valuable to the people who have money (it becomes worth more). These exotic investments which were virtually non-existent before Clinton signed the Republican bill (Gramm-Leach-Bliley) in 1999 that eliminated the safe guards that protected us from another Great Depression freed the banks to create another one (which is still coming in my opinion)and it only took them 8 years to bring it about the beginning of the crash which as you will remember, both Democrats and Republicans rushed to give hundreds of billions to the banks. Is all this planned? Unless it’s planned in Hell, I don’t think so. It’s just greed, more, more, and MORE. What is now happening is that our Central Bank and the Treasury is inflating our currency and this is what has upset, Brazil, China and Germany, and probably others because they will have to inflate their currency as well so they can still trade with us. The end result will be world wide inflation and an ultimate crash of all make believe money, perhaps first here but eventually, everywhere, opening the door for chaos and starvation on a scale never seen before and THEN they will come up with the solution, a new world money system. It’s why I closed my politically incorrect book last year talking about non-perishable foods as I remain convinced there is a high probability that they will increase in price more than gold which has already gone up some 300% since 1992 whereas inflation in general (if you don’t count food and housing which as I understand it the FED/Treasury/Government no longer count in their inflation projections) has gone up only 57% since 1992. Of course that figure is one I got less than 48 hours ago from the FED, so who knows. It’s why I can say with confidence that food will at least triple in price and that only those who have a relationship with the God of our founding fathers will be able to be guided through the treacherous shoals that those who really lead our country have chosen to take our ship of state. May God help us! He will if enough believer’s pray.

        Thanks for your words Richard, i will go online an look for your book’s.

    • who cares

      I hope obama, lets tax on the rich and corp expire. last ten years they have gotten a free ride on our dime. why should I pay their share of taxes are they better americans than you are you a millionare? I am not if you are you wont mind paying my taxes.

      • http://naver samurai

        What will you do if he does let them expire and your taxes go up at least 5% moron? I also pay my share of taxes, but in no way do I want them to keep going up. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

      • meteorlady

        “lets tax on the rich and corp expire. last ten years they have gotten a free ride on our dime. why should I pay their share of taxes are they better americans than you are you a millionare?”

        Since you can’t seem to grasp facts here’s some for you:

        The United States has the second highest total corporate income tax rate of any developed country.

        The top 5 percent and 10 percent of earners, the ratio of taxes paid compared with income earned has risen. For example, in 1980, the top 10 percent earned 32 percent of the income and paid 44 percent of the taxes—a ratio of 1.4. In 2004, this group earned more of the income (44 percent) but paid a lot more of the taxes (68 percent)—a ratio of 1.6. In other words, progressivity—in terms of share of total taxes paid—has risen. On the other hand, for the top 1 percent of earners, progressivity has declined from a ratio of 2.2 in 1980 to 1.9 in 2004.

        So I would thank a rich person instead of maligning them don’t you think? Besides Obama’s proposal will tax me highly as a business owner and will cost you money next year if you work and get health care from your employer. Seems I get to give you the cost of the health care premium as income on your W2 – that could cause you to pay more taxes if you creep up a bracket as a result of that extra income – or you could just pay a little more in taxes – I figure around $800.00.

  • Teresa

    EVERYONE should be concerned…

  • randomorbit3

    I think WE as a nation of people need to contact our Senators and Congressmen and women and let them know of our displeasure. And ask for them to explain to US how WE are going to pay it back. As we all know the money spent is being paid for by us. Maybe they need to tax some of these corporations that can give themselves million dollar raises while this once great country falls on its face. God Bless The USA

    • meteorlady

      You are already paying it back. The dollar is now worth less than it was in 2008 because they keep printing and devaluing. They call it Quantative Easing, but it pure and simple devaluation.

    • who cares

      Obama has to let taxes for the rich expire. let the rich pay their share of taxes. if I have to live off under $50.000 or under $25.000 or what ever amount. say they make a million, you 100.000 and government takes 10% a year who would feel it the most?? and thats what the republican have done, they want us pay for the rich is that fair??

        In case you missed my answer above here it is again —–

        The United States has the second highest total corporate income tax rate of any developed country.

        The top 5 percent and 10 percent of earners, the ratio of taxes paid compared with income earned has risen. For example, in 1980, the top 10 percent earned 32 percent of the income and paid 44 percent of the taxes—a ratio of 1.4.

          Good job, fellow patriot! FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

  • Doc Sarvis

    Probably like most people, even Mr. Bernanke himself, I don’t like the approach of printing morer money. I would think we would do much better than to rely on Sarah Palin’s assessment of a complex issue.

    • JohnK

      My question is, if Bernanke doesn’t like the approach, why is he planning on doing it?

      • Doc Sarvis

        I would think that, though he sees this as a bitter pill, his understanding of economics (far better than mine I’ll admit) leads him to consider this a necessary step to help our recovery.

        • Richard Pawley

          Just creating money out of nothing has never worked in any country that has tried it since the modern world adopted paper money in 1694 (It’s older than that but was banned in China where it ruined many time and time again – even modern day China has encouraged it’s citizens to buy gold, something that would never happen in this country or any where the banks control the destiny of millions). All the squandering of money is doing is prolonging the inevitable and making the day of reckoning worse when it finally arrives. Inflation is needed however by the banks in order for their investments in derivatives that exceed the value of the planet to be profitable. That is why the powers that be are trying so hard to create it. If food and other things don’t triple in price I will stop writing about such things, something I have done for 20 years.

    • Dennis

      Your right Doc, You should not rely on Sarah Palin’s assessment’s, But please do rely on your own, Just take a look around and that should do it for ya. And by no means is Sarah Palin stupid, don’t let the liberal media bring you to believe that please.

        sarah palin does not need any help anyone specially liberals just listen to her words. a woman who went 2 three different collleges she not very bright. But she sounds educated to all who know very little of politics, in other words she has pull the wool over their eyes. some compare her 2 reagan, really.

        • http://naver samurai

          Get off of the kool aid. Its rotting your brain.

        • meteorlady

          Your description sounds a lot like Obama, only with Sarah we can actually see where she did go to college and what her grades were. What about Obama? Why don’t people remember him as being a student in the schools he professed to attend? Why are his records sealed? Why was his law license voluntarily suspended? Why was Michelle’s law license suspended. All those records are sealed. It’s not a lightly done thing to surrender your law license…. it means that there was pending litigation or pending indictments against you and you wanted to sweep them away by voluntarily giving up the license.

  • meteorlady

    There’s a easy solution to all this. Stop working for a week – go on strike. Let them know that you are not working for them until they listen to you. If that fails – don’t file your income tax return for 2011. That will surely get their attention. There are estimates out there that the number of people not filing tax returns in increasing and that the government does not want the figures out because they are afraid that we will all do it.

    • Granny Mae

      With all the tax evaders in government I don’t think it will matter to the gov. what we do. They don’t have enough workers to come after everyone however just about the time you would decide you were safe that is just when the Fed. would knock on your door and not your neighbors ! I know several people that work under the table and don’t pay taxes or child support or anything else ! I’ve seen these people go to the emergency room and be treated and never pay the bill ! All this kind of action is costing the rest of us a lot of money ! The rich don’t really pay taxes. They have accountants that find every deduction possible and they use them. The poor don’t pay taxes because they are poor so they get my money back every year and it is called erned income credit ! That leaves the middle man and those just wealthy enough to be considered rich to have to support this country and all of Obamas extravagant spending on everything ! From his familys personal life and then that of this government ! Impeach this idiot !

      • who cares

        the blame belongs to the republicans and bush. when reagan was president he raided SSI. he borrow and spent more money than all the president combine before him. he closed mental institution, cut welfare, cut military, closed bases, countless of programs meant for the middle class sitizen. he helped the rich, and corp by given them tax breaks. the people that needed least got the most. what we’re seeing is reaganomics. twenty years the republicans used i o u’s and now the chickens have come to roost. all of you continue to vote republican and you blame democrats. how you expect for obama to fix (in two years). what republicans has taken twenty year destroy. drink that with tea.

        • meteorlady

          Get your facts straight again. SSI was raided during the Johnson administration. Johnson opened it up in order to get Medicare appear to be revenue neutral. Reagan did not condone this practice nor did he have any control over what the congress had already decided to do during LBJ’s reign. In fact, if you want to place blame you might go that far back to LBJ’s great society programs. They were bad for the country then and they have proved to be really bad right now as they have escalated and cost us BILLIONS today.

  • jopa

    Are we getting into the silly season. Sarah Palin is clueless when it comes to the Federal Reserve or even such a thing called the Justice Department.During the campaign she called the Justice Dept. the Law Dept and the Department of Agriculture the Garden Dept.Now do you think Bernake or anyone of a minimal intelligence would consider her a good source for policy??I think not.Where do you people come up with this silliness??

    • meteorlady

      Sorry Jopa but I think you don’t know humor when you see or read it. I find it curious that most women hate her and men just write her off as stupid and vapid. Does anyone really know much about her, other than she’s pretty successful and did OK for Alaska. Most people up there liked her just find. It was after her vice president thing that people on the other side of the fence started with lawsuits and eventually caused her to resign.

      My brother lives up there and he liked her – she was brash and had more balls than most men in the legislature.

      Most of you just judge a book by it’s cover – you really need to study up before commenting. Oh, as if Bernanke is anyone smart? He’s a crook from Wall Street. What he says is orchestrated by them.

        No, Sara is quite smart at getting what she wants…. attention. She’ll put her 2 cents in on what ever is the hot topic, and gets her media time in. See it for what it is, a cry for attention, her and the whole family. Don’t forget, the bridge to nowhere!

          The Bridge to nowhere, Yep the $398 million bridge from the town of Ketchikan, AK to Gravina Island with a community of about 50 people with a small airport, And its biggest supporters -> Representative Don Young and Senator Ted Stevens of Alaska and yes Sarah did support the bridge in the begging but later in 2007 canceled the project. I could go on but whats the point

        • meteorlady

          CJ – jealous? She’s getting a lot of attention and obviously people are willing to pay her to get more when she give speeches. I’d call that a pretty smart business woman.

  • http://none Mike

    I think there are alot of people out there scared to death Palin, On the right because we have been conditioned by the media that she cant win. And on the lefet because they know if she does their socialist agenda is sunk for another 4 to 8 years. I personally would vote for her if she ran even as an independent.Mainly because she is exactly the type of canidate we really need in the whitehouse mainly a real person not a book educated know nothing.So untill we quit looking at what the media says about her and really look at the person behind it lets not jump to any conclusions about her views and intellagence Mike L.

    • CJ

      Mike, she is exactly the WRONG person. I’m not questioning her opinion, but her objective. She only speaks up if she can get media attention. Take away the limelight, and it’s all different. All she wants is attention.

      • http://none Mike

        CJ, I can premis what I am saying in that post. By saying this. We see what the media wants us to see of her.During her run as V.P. she was the only canidate that was willing to even call for town halls to get the peoples opinion. I have a feeling if the ticket had been reversed we might have had a very diffrent outcome to the last presidential election. Mainly because she excited the conservitive base in a good way. Insted we had McCain Who was a dead end from the very start many including me held our noses and voted for McCain because we knew Obama was going to be bad from the start. Many out there though were disalusioned with the choices we had on the republican side (Voted for Huckabee in the primaries myself)And just sat it out. They did this because the great compromizer in McCain would have been a disaster for real conservitism in washington Anyone willing to compromize our borders in the way he was was totally un-electable.Another strike against him was McCain Feingold. That was a disaster for free speach rights.There needed to be reform dont get me wrong but the way they went about it was a disaster for republicans.I have too many reasons why I would support her. And they far outweigh the ones I wouldent support her on.Mike L.

          Mike,
          Exactly right! Had the lame duck McCain let her loose to attack Nobummer as she had wanted, the outcome of the election might have been very different. I still think McCain lost on purpose!! I think the dealio was in the works!!

          • http://none Mike

            Joe, It didnt have to be a fix really McCain just didnt know which party he wanted to run for. He was so busy even during the campagin compromizing with the democrats.That his own party voters deserted him in droves.I was talking a total reverse of the ticket with Palin as president and McCain as V.P This would have worked I think because Palin was precived as not haveing a strong forigen policy.McCain with his war hero reputation could have bolstered that and eased hawk republicans fears about that. She had the right domestic policies though for sure she wanted to close the borders and bolster our defence.As well as develope american resources here. Mike L.

          • Granny Mae

            Joe H.,

            I think you are right ! What ever the case McCain was not the man for this last election and I think everyone knows that ! Sarah sure did out shine him from the beginning !

        • meteorlady

          I was thinking about that awhile back. McCain and the whole deal. Do you suppose that they elites pushed and helped McCain to run so Obama would win? I just can find no other explanation. Why would the Republicans actually support someone like McCain? I was a loose from the beginning.

      • Granny Mae

        CJ

        Your statement doesn’t hold water ! Just look at any politician no matter what his party affiliation and you will see men and women that live for the lime light ! They take advantage of every opportunity to get their message across ! For you to single out Sarah Palin because she is taking advantage of every opportunity to state her thoughts and ideas is stupid ! I get it. You don’t like her period but to try to discredit her for being able to speak on tv or at groups , every chance she can is rediculous ! There is not a politician out there that wouldn’t and doesn’t do exactly the same thing she is doing. That’s how they get their messages out and how we get that message and make up our minds as to whether we agree with them or not !

        • meteorlady

          I just can’t figure it out either…. why do people love to hate her? I think she’s folksy in a nice way, is quite intelligent, she can certainly stir up a crowd and I haven’t really heard much stupid come from her so just puzzled by people’s reactions to her.

          • Granny Mae

            meteorlady,

            I think the problem is a lot of men feel intimidated by strong willed women. They look at them as a threat. Others will honestly look at their skills and judge them fairly but not too many. You can tell the ones that feel threatened by a woman in politics just by what they say about them !

  • chuckb

    mike. i agree with you. the demos are scared of palin and she would win just like reagan did, she is smart, knows her politics and is of good character.

    • coal miner

      Wrong Chuckb,

      look at the latest polls
      More than half of Americans, 52%, now view Sarah Palin unfavorably, the highest percentage holding a negative opinion of the former Alaska governor in Gallup polling since Sen. John McCain tapped her as the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee. Her 40% favorable rating ties her lowest favorable score, recorded just over a year ago. [...] Dream on.

I guess he is referring the democrats and Obama supporters to a flock of sheep. Thank you.

        We don’t blame anyone but ourselves for the stupidty of electing some of the people that are now in power. What we try to do is eliminate that bad once, but you can’t fix stupid and they get reelected. Even when they are under indictment they get reelected.

        Do you honestly believe that people like Pelosi, Al Gore, the Clintons and the others like them have your best interests at heart? If you do, I have some swampland that needs to be sold.

        Fact is there are corrupt individuals in both parties. Fact is we are stuck with a two party system because the media only gives two sides of the story. There are actually more than 15 political parties in this country, some of which are really viable and should get attention by the media. Instead the media claims the are right/left fringe elements and nut cases. Until that stops and we demand equal opportunity in the election process, we will have the same elites controlling our politicians and thus our government.

    Mike and chuckb, liberial and the socialist morons, who voted for the chocolate purple lipped marxist muslim, definitely the ones scared like rabbit with a hawk circling, why they wouldn’t knowwhat to do with out subsidized living, schooling, and the rest of entitlements. When she called the Dept of Ag the Garden Dept, yes it is. Most of the government s==tbirds in the positions are not worried about food production or ag production, but more wildlife and the feel good envior crap.

        And Obama, With all his vast learnings and ( teachings, aka professer, aka “in truth” part-time lecturer ? ) said, he had been to 57 states and he had ONE more to visit. So i guess he meant we have 58.

        Lame – really lame.

    Anyone with an ounce of common sense should be: “deeply concerned” with the plan of “printing [money] out of thin air.”

    There is a reason our Dollar’s value is a shadow of what it once was.
    Thanks be to the Fed. The fed is supposed to control inflation. Well it does, it drives it up.

    Look at the graph of the Dollar’s value and note the text in red. It is very simple what needs to happen.

      Bleh, The thing is they dont even really have to print it anymore they press a button in an office somewhere and money magically appears on the major banks ledgers. This has to be stopped before the dollar is going to be totally worthless. Its allready close around the world with votes of no confidence in emerging markets like china and india. Why do you think Obama had to go on his cheerleading tour this last week. It was to attempt to call off China from calling our debt in and to beg India to buy into his spending policies. Mike L.

      • Bleh

        Well said Mike.

  • Lewis Munn

    We have not taught or learned the lessons of German pre-WWII to our sheeple.

    Obama and crew did pay attention, learning how Germany was ruined and how a major World war started, so they know exactly how to ruin the US and start another major war.

    We have failed to teach the lessons of History in our schools, so now we have no defense against those who would repeat the lessons to us much more personally and forcefully.

    And we are teaching destructive things, and getting rid of the valuable and constructive things in our schools. No time for real US history anymore.

    We are starting the reap what we have sown, it appears to me.

  • jopa

    Lewis: The USA got involved in two wars and the country went downhill before Obama became president.Obama and crew did pay attention how Bush tried to ruin our country but now we are on the road to recovery.

    • meteorlady

      Sorry jopa – you need to give up the Bush rant. It’s old, out dated and it doesn’t mean much here at all. It’s just a liberal “statement” that everyone uses when they really can’t think of an intelligent answer or comment.

      If you really took the time to read up on Bush, then you would know that as President he could not declare war without full CONGRESSIONAL APPROVAL. I propose you read the stirring and patriotic speech that Ted Kennedy gave as he voted YES! Then there was Hilliary’s and the other most liberal dems….. They all had the same exact intelligence that Bush had.

      Another point – even with both wars Bush had the deficit coming down until 2007 when the Democrats controlled the budget. I do blame him for not vetoing the spending programs and budgets, but that’s about all.

      Oh yeah – every month people get together in the Dallas/Fort Worth area go to DFW and meet soldiers coming home from the wars. Every once in awhile George and Laura show up and stand in line to shake there hands with the rest of the citizens. They do all this without fanfare or press. Where was Obama on Veterans Day?
