  1. James and James,
    Dang! You guys, this was a great brief on the real news! Thanks!
    I loved hearing about the seeds.
    And I’m glad that Corbett clarified the Bush hearing was a civil case. I wasn’t aware it was civil. We know how civil cases can go (e.g. William Pepper and MLK trial of 1999 – ).

    Corbett brings up an important question on the Fed hike this week.
    “Why now?”
    Of course the Fed hike of .25 points is diddly squat by comparative standards, unless one weighs it against the other central banks and their negative or zero rates.
    Charts showing past Fed Fund Rates –
    or by gold comparison

    I feel like the beneficiaries of this small rate hike are banks and hedge funds and those who capitalize on “market noise and panic”.

    Regardless of the small increase, I think we all agree that we despise the elite manipulators of currency and the economy.
