Recently, on his blog (http://urbansurvival.com/week.htm ), George Ure said that other than his ranch and preps, in terms of his liquid assets, he is invested 50% PM's, and 50% Treasury Directs, this really surprised me, as I thought that he had said that he had 30% in TD's. Either way George is saying with his money that he is split down the middle on the question of inflation vs deflation!!! So, he is way more conservative than I am re: hedging against deflation risks.
I believe that TPTB/W are trying to accomplish the long, slow economic unwinding that Catherine Austin Fitts has been predicting for quite some time. As part of this strategy, they want people to borrow and spend in order to "create" more money, and thusly keep the economy sputtering along, and in the process, deplete the wealth of the middle class. This reckless spending, which they have been encouraging "we the sheeple" to participate in, is a short cut to that storm drain which leads to widespread personal bankruptcy. Although this may proceed as they have planned, there are so many moving parts, so many unknowns, so many big egos and potential double-crosses, not to mention Terra-intrusions, Sun-Disease phenomenon etc., etc. that it can fall apart at any given time. So, any mistake, or unforseen calamity, or more likely a combination or series of these, will likely totally upset their apple cart, and hopefully spoil all of their nefarious schemes, and then all of their GM-apples will roll down that storm drain.....leading to the demise of the dollar, which is just another way of achieving hyperinflation and a rapid collapse into economic oblivion, and their nearly complete loss of control from that point on.
But, beware the slow unwind which they are working feverishly to maintain....a slow-motion nightmare......foreshadowing the issuing in of an unprecedented 1984-esque style of government control over our lives (including all of the high tech tweaks available now, things that George Orwell couldn't even imagine, all of which are in place to further the innumerable control levers now in the hands of TPTB/W). Let's hope and pray that they can't hold it all together, and that renewed freedom is our reward at the end of the tunnel we are entering.
Below is evidence pointing towards further deflationary movement within the currently camoflagued depression they have been calling a recession. This continuing deflation seems to be the result of the failure of their QE2 "effort" (real, or faked?) to reflate the shrinking M3 money supply. Since QE2 was entirely inadequate to stimulate the economy and get inflation ramped-up, and since the BIG BANKS were paid to keep their "stimulus money" out of circulation, placed in 'Excess Reserves' accounts, rather than being invested in businesses, infrastructure, technology etc., one can reasonably assume that TPTB/W don't want hyperinflation, but rather the slow unwinding of the American Empire along a path leading to the OWG/NWO with a single electronic currency worldwide. America represented and still represents a big hurdle to TPTB/W in terms of achieving that centuries long goal....and that wild mustang had to be broken before it could be walked down that one-way path to total slavery!!! Let's get the saddle off of our backs (Central Bankers/ Fiat currency)!!!
In this sick economic system, which our Keynesian overlords have foisted upon us, money is defined as debt....and this debt-money amalgam is created and/or printed by the Federal Reserve Bank as debt insturments. QE2 has thus far not created the big rise in M3 money supply that would create actual inflation. Real Estate keeps drifting lower, banks aren't lending, and most of the money creation is sitting on the sidelines of the economy, and is not stimulating an actual recovery. States and municipalities, and their bonds are circling that same drain leading to complete insolvency. Fiat ponzi banking plus insane leveraging, plus C.D.S.'s and derivative madness has allowed the charade to go on and on, BUT the piper must be paid, and the Black Swan must swoop out of the skies one of these days.
Whether we will suffer Hyperinflation or Deflation are still a question mark, either way we will suffer!!! The better ones preps, the less the suffering will be. The size of QE3, if it even happens, will likely be the defining moment revealing the truth as to whether TPTB/W really wants massive inflation, or just more slow motion falling into total collapse over the next ten years or so. That would be their ideal scenario!!!
A heavy anchor keeping the economy from inflating is Real Estate, and RE experienced a huge drop in February, bad news for Bernancke!!!??? See quote from article re: sinking RE values, link: http://www.cnbc.com/id/42192395
"The median home price dropped 5.2 percent in February from a year earlier to $156,100, the lowest since April 2002.

How long can the Federal Reserve keep interest rates at the current insanely low rates??? Without these low interest rates, the deficits of the Treasury/ US Govt. are totally unsupportable, the game is over, and the dollar will lose whatever support it has had in the International marketplace. This is one of the many wildcards currently in play, and something to be on the lookout for. PIMCO's actions recently of unloading their huge Treasury inventory seems to be pointing towards interest rate increases becoming a huge issue in the near future. Got preps? Got PM's? Got lead and brass to keep your preps and PM's? If not all 3 categories, get 'em soon!!! Either wayinflation or deflation, these are the REAL "winning" (as in Charlie Sheen, LOL) "investments"!!!
