Gerald Celente: War With Iran Would Mark Beginning of WW3!

  • Gerald Celente: War With Iran Would Mark Beginning of WW3!
    Founder of the Trends Research Institute Gerald Celente discusses how conditions of this recession are similar to post-World War recessions. Celente points out that currency wars are already happening and trade wars are heating up. “Seven of the last recessions were preceded by spikes in oil prices,” he says. Celente believes a war with Iran would trigger the beginning of World War 3. The trends forecaster is invested 80% in gold. He expects the stock market to keep up as long as the Fed continues pumping cheap money into the system.

Chinese Business Media Cautions Japanese Bond Bubble Is Ready To Burst, Anticipates 40% Yen Devaluation!

It is a matter of when, not whether?

  • The world is about to face a global currency crisis. The progression of the collapse appears to be: start in the Eurozone, the Euro will collapse, followed by UKP, Japanese Yen … spread to the rest of the world … and finally the USD meltdown.
  • I do not believe that it will only affect the major currencies or just the western industrialized countries’ currencies. It will be a global currency meltdown. All minor fiat currencies will follow down the toilet bowl of currency debasement against hard assets. Got physical gold yet?
  • Take for eg. the Japanese Yen, when it its devalued, the Chinese will employ competitive devaluation for their Chinese Yuan. Once this happens, other Asian nations will follow suit to remain economically competitive. In particular, the Asian Tiger economies: South Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong and 2nd tier rising economies: Thailand, Malaysia, Philippines .. etc.

    Chinese Business Media Cautions Japanese Bond Bubble Is Ready To Burst, Anticipates 40% Yen Devaluation! 
    by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com/ 
    It is a fact that when it comes to the oddly resilient Japanese hyperlevered economic model, the bodies of those screaming for the end of the JGB bubble litter the sides of central planning’s tungsten brick road. Yet in the aftermath of last month’s stunning surge in the country’s trade deficit, this, and much more may soon be finally ending. Because as Caixin’s Andy Xie writes “The day of reckoning for the yen is not distant. Japanese companies are struggling with profitability. It only gets worse from here. When a major company goes bankrupt, this may change the prevailing psychology. A weak yen consensus will emerge then.”

    As for the bubble pop, it will be a sudden pop, not the 30 year deflationary whimper Mrs. Watanabe has gotten so used to: “Yen devaluation is likely to unfold quickly. A financial bubble doesn’t burst slowly. When it occurs, it just pops. The odds are that yen devaluation will occur over days. Only a large and sudden devaluation can keep the JGB yield low. Otherwise, the devaluation expectation will trigger a sharp rise in the JGB yield. The resulting worries over the government’s solvency could lead to a collapse of the JGB market.” It gets worse: “Of course, the government will collapse with the JGB market.

    And once Japan falls, the rest of the world follows, says Xie, which is why he is now actively encouraging China, and all other Japanese trade partners of the world’s rapidly declining 3rd largest economy to take precautions for when this day comes… soon. Oh, and this: ” If the bond yield rises to 2 percent, the interest expense would surpass the total expected tax revenue of 42.3 trillion yen.”

Bob Chapman: Gold & Silver Going Alot Higher!

  • US Fed Reserve Is The Chief Debt Enabler
    by Bob Chapman, http://theinternationalforecaster.com/
    Many european nations going to Greece, more euro crises on the way, a production slowdown is happening, Keynsian bromide one of many solutions, big banks buyers of debt, treasury bills soaking up an ever increasing wave of debt.

    It isn’t over until it is over. Of course, we are referring to Europe and its version of 1984. We find it profound that the bankers, politicians and bureaucrats of Europe can do what they have done with a straight face. Investor had a haircut shoved down their throats and the ECB, the European Central Bank and the IMF were exempt. How does that work? That is because some are more equal than others. There is no question this will be a defining event for the European and world financial system. We did see a partial default, but only because the derivative creators, the ISDA, had to make one, otherwise their derivative business would have collapsed. No one will deal with an insurer or a bookmaking operation that doesn’t pay off and constantly arbitrary changes the rules. Needless to say, such machinations are out of sight of the public, because 99% of them certainly do not understand derivatives.

    Greece is on its way to its next crisis whether it be via austerity, demonstrations or a military coup. In all likelihood Greece will be followed by Ireland, Portugal, Belgium, Spain and Italy. It will also be interesting to see if bank deposits return to Greek banks. They probably wont and there will be great difficulty affecting any kind of a recovery. The Greek people through all of this have been left out of the equation.

    Just to show you what shape European Central Banks are in they owe the ECB $650 billion. In addition if Greece had or does leave the euro zone in the future they will owe the solvent euro players another $125 billion in payable debt. A debt that will be far worse six months to a year from now. This means Germany will use the next bailout to say no, especially that the ESM won’t be available to them, or so says their Supreme Court. We believe Germany wanted to take the loss and move on a year ago, but the bankers demanded no. Their dream of world government is still alive and more important than the EU financial system. Then again, we are told the Mediterranean is one vast deposit of natural gas. If so, then perhaps Greece is being held on to in order to access that gas and be less dependent upon Russia. As we had said so often since the early 1990’s the EU and euro zone are doomed.

    Greece stands no chance of recovery due to the inadequate funds rendered. Then there are the CDS payouts of some $3 billion, which will make things more difficult for other nations in the same predicament. The recapitalization of Greek banks is an insult to economic intelligence. They’ll need twice the funds offered just to reach the 9% capital requirements. Greek pension funds will get ravaged, probably retaining 25% of former value. We see a coalition government on May 1st and that puts into question the future of the bailout deal just completed. Greece is going to be subject to 20% budget cut on top of what has already been cut. This deal engineered by the bankers is the worst of all worlds. It will cause serious EU problems for years to come.

    As we mentioned earlier Portugal is headed in the same direction as Greece. No growth and no change of any kind. Italy and Spain will have to be bailed out like the others. Then there is the dark dirty secret that is France that follows close behind. These problems are going to go on and on and on.

CAIR: Muslim “Radicalizers” Are FBI Informants!

  • The Masonic Origins of the Muslim Brotherhood (emphasis mine)
    The Masonic origins of the Islamists movements, and their true goal to undermine Islam and fight for Western Zionist Powers such as Britain and the United States of America. The Muslim Brotherhood has acted as a clever technique to recruit agent-provocateurs for the Illuminati. The lowest ranks may sincerely believe they are defending Islam, and confronting “Western imperialism”. However, these various terrorist groups, through representing different factions, are part of a single network serving the same Illuminati cause.

    When we explore the political and financial connections of the terrorists, we find that these are not merely wayward fanatics, operating in isolation, but that their channels penetrate to the upper reaches of power, in the British and American governments, and outward into the nether regions of the occult and criminal underworlds.

    William Engdahl on Egypt’s uprising:
    They are being organized in a Ukrainian-style high-tech electronic fashion with large internet-linked networks of youth tied to Mohammed ElBaradei and the banned and murky secret Muslim Brotherhood, whose links to British and American intelligence and freemasonry are widely reported.

    Muslim Brotherhood created by British Intelligence
    Dr. John Coleman, a former British Intelligence agent…states in his report on Iran’s Islamic Revolution that the Muslim Brotherhood was created by “the great names of British Middle East intelligence”…and that their mission was to “keep the Middle East backward so that its natural resource, oil, could continue to be looted…”

    The Muslim Brotherhood is a London creation, forged as the standard-bearer of an ancient, anti-religious (pagan) heresy that has plagued Islam since the establishment of the Islamic community (umma) by the Prophet Mohammed in the seventh century. Representing organized Islamic fundamentalism, the organization called the Muslim Brotherhood (Ikhwan al-Muslimum in Arabic) was officially founded in Egypt, in 1929, by the British agent Hasan al-Banna, a Sufi mystic. Today, the Muslim Brotherhood is the umbrella under which a host of fundamentalist Sufi, Sunni, and radical Shiite brotherhoods and societies flourish.

    The Muslim Brotherhood is a tool by the British-based Globalists whose main objective is to overthrow the established world order and create a new one-world system of global governance. Without the British, “radical Islam would have remained the illegitimate, repressive minority movement that it has always been, and the Middle East would have remained stable and prosperous.”

    The real Muslim Brothers are…the secretive bankers and financiers who stand behind the curtain, the members of the old Arab, Turkish, or Persian families whose genealogy places them in the oligarchic elite, with smooth business and intelligence associations to the European black nobility and, especially, to the British oligarchy.

    By fabricating a bogus war between Islamic fundamentalism and the West, the globalists are able to attack their real enemy, humanity. Pulling the strings, they will ensure that both Western and Muslim states are degraded and finally completely subjugated to their odious rule.
  • David Livingstone: Terrorism And The Illuminati. A Three Thousand Year History!
    About the Book
    Contrary to myth being fabricated, Islam does not pose a threat to the West. Rather, Islamic “terrorist” organizations have been created to serve Western imperialistic objectives. These groups are intertwined with Western power through a network of occult secret societies. This relationship dates back to sixth century BC, and the birth of the Kabbalah, in Babylon; a plot to seek world domination through the use of magic and deception.

Yes, Virginia, Israel Does Murder Palestinian Children!

Revelation 2:9 – …. and I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.

  • Will the Christian sheeple wake up and understand that Zionist ‘666’ Israel is a Satanic counterfeit? Most of them never will. Ashkenazi Khazars (90+% of modern Jewry) are not semitic people and not the biological descendents of the 12 tribes of Israel. Zionist ‘666’ Israel is not the Israel of the Bible! It is a FRAUD! Here is how I would describe what is happening: Ashkenazi Khazars non semitic people flying a Satanic ‘666’ flag (whose religion is Anti-Christ, Anti-Christian, Babylonian Talmud & Kabbalah) are massacring semitic Palestinian people. Understand the spiritual significance? The Christian sheeple are being SCAMMED. They are enabling Satan’s agenda but they think they are serving the God of the Bible!

    Yes, Virginia, Israel Does Murder Palestinian Children! 
    by Keith Johnson, http://revoltoftheplebs.wordpress.com/ 
    In between heaping helpings of flesh and blood, Israeli war criminals feasting on the carcass of Palestine stopped long enough on Tuesday to shriek out an indictment against EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton because she dared count Gaza’s children among “young people who have been killed in all sorts of terrible circumstances.”

    During a speech delivered on Monday to Palestinian refugees in Brussels, Ashton addressed the recent shooting at a Jewish school in Toulouse that left four people dead, and then referred to other tragedies that have taken the lives of children around the world—including last year’s massacre in Norway, a bus crash in Switzerland that killed 22 Belgian school children a week ago, the current violence in Syria and “what is happening in Gaza and in different parts of the world.”

    This was enough to “incense” serial-child-murderer Benjamin Netanyahu, whose ears must be constantly ringing as Palestinian mothers grieve over the loss of their offspring.

    “What gets me especially incensed is the comparison between the targeted slaughter of children and the surgical, defensive activities of the (Israel Defense Forces) that are meant to hit terrorists who use children for human shields,” Netanyahu told reporters on Tuesday.

    Netanyahu has that ass-backwards. Members of the Israeli Occupation Force (IOF—Not IDF) are the ones who target children for slaughter, and they are also the ones who use Palestinian children as human shields. On November 12, 2011, Moammar Mashni of Australians for Palestine wrote:

    “Contrary to the often regurgitated myth that Palestinians use their children as human shields, it has never been proven – not once. Yet in October 2010, two Israeli soldiers were convicted of using a 9-year-old boy as a human shield during the infamous Operation Cast Lead of 2008/9. There are at least 15 other documented cases of children being used as human shields since 2004, with only the aforementioned case of the 9-year-old ever having been investigated.”

    “Analysing the statistical data of child mistreatment by Israel is a horrific mission. The average number of Palestinian children in Israeli detention over the last 12 months is 212 – that is children aged 12 to 18 locked up on for the most minor indiscretion as Israel creates specific military orders that criminalise any form of opposition to the occupation.”

    Without doubt though, the statistic that should trouble any person of good conscience is the data relating to child fatalities. From 2000 to 2009, 1,329 children were killed by Israel. In real terms that means a Palestinian child was killed every three days, of every week, of every month, of every year, for 10 long years. How can this possibly be justified?

    Don’t just take Mashni’s word for it. An October 2010 report by Defense of Children International states:

    “Between 26 March and 14 October 2010, DCI-Palestine documented 14 cases of children shot whilst collecting building gravel near the border fence between Gaza Strip and Israel. Due to a severe lack of job opportunities and a shortage of construction material entering Gaza from Israel, hundreds of men and boys scavenge for building gravel amongst the destroyed buildings close to the border fence. The gravel is collected into sacks, loaded onto donkey drawn carts and sold to builders for use in concrete. Children can earn up to 50 shekels (US $13) per day which is used to help support their families. Reports indicate that Israeli soldiers on duty in the observation towers which line the border between Gaza and Israel frequently fire warning shots to scare workers away from the border region. Reports also indicate that these soldiers sometimes shoot and kill the donkeys used by the workers, and also target the workers, usually, but not always, shooting at their legs. In the cases documented by DCI-Palestine, the children report being shot whilst working between 50 to 800 metres from the border fence.”

    Statistics maintained by if Americans knew estimate that 1,471 have been killed by Israel from September, 2000 to present day. This month alone, at least seven Palestinian children were killed and dozens more seriously injured during Israel’s airstrikes on Gaza.

    Yes, Virginia—Israel deliberately targets children, makes them into human shields, and even uses their dead bodies for target practice. Read this heart wrenching tale, entitled “Dad, I’m Dying.” Here is an excerpt:

    “Laughs got louder as they carried the body to a higher place to start their party. For a whole hour, the father hushed his cries of pain as he watched the Israeli soldiers compete in sniping on his dead son’s body. ‘They were using his bullet-ridden, bleeding body as a shooting practice,’ said the Father. ‘With each bullet, they were humming with words I could not figure out, but it sounded full of rapture. It was as if they were celebrating.’”

    Some may claim that these atrocities don’t represent Israeli policy, and are only carried out by a few demented individuals. Really? I would argue that this hatred for Palestinian children is epidemic throughout Israeli society. In 2009, “The King’s Torah,” became a best-selling book in Israel. Written by Rabbi Yitzhak Shapiro, it sets out a justification for murdering any gentile that poses a threat to the Jewish—even babies and children.

10 Reasons Why The Reign Of The Dollar As The World Reserve Currency Is About To Come To An End !

It is coming!!! It won't just be the USD! It will be Global Currency Meltdown!

    10 Reasons Why The Reign Of The Dollar As The World Reserve Currency Is About To Come To An End ! 
    by http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/ 
    The U.S. dollar has probably been the closest thing to a true global currency that the world has ever seen. For decades, the use of the U.S. dollar has been absolutely dominant in international trade. This has had tremendous benefits for the U.S. financial system and for U.S. consumers, and it has given the U.S. government tremendous power and influence around the globe. Today, more than 60 percent of all foreign currency reserves in the world are in U.S. dollars. But there are big changes on the horizon.

    The mainstream media in the United States has been strangely silent about this, but some of the biggest economies on earth have been making agreements with each other to move away from using the U.S. dollar in international trade. There are also some oil producing nations which have begun selling oil in currencies other than the U.S. dollar, which is a major threat to the petrodollar systemwhich has been in place for nearly four decades. And big international institutions such as the UN and the IMF have even been issuing official reports about the need to move away form the U.S. dollar and toward a new global reserve currency. So the reign of the U.S. dollar as the world reserve currency is definitely being threatened, and the coming shift in international trade is going to have massive implications for the U.S. economy.

    A lot of this is being fueled by China. China has the second largest economy on the face of the earth, and the size of the Chinese economy is projected to pass the size of the U.S. economy by 2016. In fact, one economist is even projecting that the Chinese economy will be three times larger than the U.S. economy by the year 2040.

    So China is sitting there and wondering why the U.S. dollar should continue to be so preeminent if the Chinese economy is about to become the number one economy on the planet.

    Over the past few years, China and other emerging powers such as Russia have been been quietly making agreements to move away from the U.S. dollar in international trade. The supremacy of the U.S. dollar is not nearly as solid as most Americans believe that it is.

    As the U.S. economy continues to fade, it is going to be really hard to argue that the U.S. dollar should continue to function as the primary reserve currency of the world. Things are rapidly changing, and most Americans have no idea where these trends are taking us.

    The following are 10 reasons why the reign of the dollar as the world reserve currency is about to come to an end….

    #1 China And Japan Are Dumping the U.S. Dollar In Bilateral Trade
    A few months ago, the second largest economy on earth (China) and the third largest economy on earth (Japan) struck a deal which will promote the use of their own currencies (rather than the U.S. dollar) when trading with each other. This was an incredibly important agreement that was virtually totally ignored by the U.S. media. The following is from a BBC report about that agreement….

    China and Japan have unveiled plans to promote direct exchange of their currencies in a bid to cut costs for companies and boost bilateral trade.
    The deal will allow firms to convert the Chinese and Japanese currencies directly into each other. Currently businesses in both countries need to buy US dollars before converting them into the desired currency, adding extra costs.

    #2 The BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) Plan To Start Using Their Own Currencies When Trading With Each Other
    The BRICS continue to flex their muscles. A new agreement will promote the use of their own national currencies when trading with each other rather than the U.S. dollar. The following is from a news source in India ….

R2P (Responsibility 2 Protect): Imperial Conquest by Another Name!

  •  
    As the world recovers from one humanitarian peace bombing in Libya, and braces for another possible intervention in Syria, many are now asking how it is that the so-called liberal left have become cheerleaders for the very wars of aggression they once pretended to deride. As long-time investigate reporter Pepe Escobar explains, an obscure international doctrine called Responsibility To Protect or R2P has been the main tool for shaping this new paradigm for the continuation of NATO’s imperial power grabs around the world.

TBTF Get TBTFer: Top 5 Banks Hold 95.7%, Or $221 Trillion, Of Outstanding Derivatives!

  • The financial derivatives market (CDS, CDO, MBS, ABS…) is largely a fraudulent market. It is one BIG Financial Casino and totally opaque. No one knows for sure how big the market is. It ranges from US$700T to US$1.5 Quadrillion (compare this to a world GDP of about US$65T). It is an unregulated OTC market. When it collapses, the financial world as we know it will come to an end.

    TBTF Get TBTFer: Top 5 Banks Hold 95.7%, Or $221 Trillion, Of Outstanding Derivatives! 
    by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com/ 
    Every quarter the Office of the Currency Comptroller releases its report on Bank Derivative Activities, and every quarter we find that the Too Big To Fail get Too Bigger To Fail. To wit: in Q4 2011, of the total $230.8 trillion in US outstanding derivatives, the Top 5 banks (JPM, BofA, Morgan Stanley, Goldman and HSBC) accounted for 95.7% of all Derivatives. In some respects this is good news: in Q2, the Top 5 banks held 95.9% of the $250 trillion in derivatives.

    Unfortunately it is also bad news, because $220 trillion is more than enough for the world to collapse in a daisy chained failure of bilateral netting (which not even all the central banks in the world can offset). What is the worst news, is that the just released report indicates that in addition to everything else, we have now hit peak delusion, as banks now report to the OCC that a record high 92.2% of gross credit exposure is “bilaterally netted.”

    While we won’t spend much time on this issue now, it is safe to say that bilateral netting is the biggest lie in modern finance (read How US Banks Are Lying About Their European Exposure; Or How Bilateral Netting Ends With A Bang, Not A Whimper for an explanation of this fraud which was exposed completely in the AIG collapse). And just to put this in global perspective, according to the BIS in the first half of 2011, global derivative gross exposure increased by $107 trillion to a record $707 trillion.

    It will be quite interesting to get the full year report to see if this acceleration in gross exposure has increased. Because if it has, we will now know that in 2011 European banks were forced up to load up on several hundred trillion in mostly interest rate swap exposure. Which can only mean one thing: when and if central banks lose control of government bond curves, an rates start moving wider again, the global margin call will be unprecedented. Until then we can just delude ourselves that central planners have everything under control, have everything under control, have everything under control.

IN HIGH GEAR: Advanced Preparations of U.S.-Israel War Against Iran!

  • War is coming to the Middle East. It is the Satanic World War 3 Plan. The Middle East will largely be destroyed. Zionist ‘666’ Israel will be destroyed. Oil supplies out of the ME will dropped dramatically. Asia, in particular China and India, will face economic collapse without oil. The Eurozone will tank. Of the major powers, Russia and America will be ok. Russia because it is the #1/#2 supplier of oil and natural gas. America because of its immense oil reserves (which is about to be turned on).

    IN HIGH GEAR: Advanced Preparations of U.S.-Israel War Against Iran! 
    by Ben Schreiner, http://globalresearch.ca/ 
    Following the highly scrutinized meeting between President Barack Obama and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu earlier this month in Washington, consensus held that Obama had managed to secure assurances from the war-hungry Netanyahu that Israel would delay a military strike against Iran till 2013. That is, till after the November U.S. presidential election.

    According to the Israeli daily Maariv, this commitment of Israeli “restraint” had been bought with the sale of U.S. “advanced bunker-busting bombs and long-range refueling planes” to the Israeli Defense Forces, as al-Akhbar (3/8) reported. Needless to say, such advanced weaponry would be required in any Israeli attack on Iran.

    “You shall still have your war,” Obama thus seemingly sought to convey to Netanyahu, “but only in due time.”

    Since the Obama-Netanyahu summit, however, indications of such Israeli restraint have dissipated. The Israeli dogs of war are not so easily tamed. In fact, in his latest column for Bloomberg (3/19), the Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg reports that talk of striking Iran is once more convulsing through the Israeli political establishment. And according to Goldberg, all such discussions have assumed a rather optimistic bent.

    “One conclusion key officials have reached,” Goldberg writes, “is that a strike on six or eight Iranian facilities will not lead, as is generally assumed, to all-out war.”

    We learn further that Israeli officials interpret Obama’s claims of “having Israel’s back” as meaning that even in the event of an Israeli strike against Iran in the face of U.S. protest, “Obama would move immediately to help buttress Israel’s defenses against an Iranian counterstrike.”

    All this leaves Goldberg to assess that Israel shall ultimately strike Iran. As he writes, “I’m highly confident that Netanyahu isn’t bluffing—that he is in fact counting down to the day when he will authorize a strike against a half-dozen or more Iranian nuclear sites.”

    This unnerving assessment mirrors that held by another favored media conduit for Israeli propaganda, Ronen Bergman, who after similarly speaking with senior Israeli leaders earlier this year, concluded in the New York Times Magazine (1/25) that, “Israel will indeed strike Iran in 2012.”

    Notably, Goldberg’s Bloomberg piece appeared the very day the New York Times (3/19) reported on a secret U.S. war game held earlier this month. The war game reportedly simulated an Israeli strike on Iranian nuclear facilities. And as the Times reported, the exercise “forecasts that the strike would lead to a wider regional war, which could draw in the United States and leave hundreds of Americans dead.”

    (The report did not specify to any detail on the expected regional war unleashed by an Israeli strike. Nor did the paper mention any projection of potential Iranian casualties. But why would they? After all, as U.S. Gen. Tommy Franks averred back in 2002: “We don’t do body counts.”)

    And of course, where there is smoke, there is fire.

Why is genocidal madman Netanyahu screaming for war with Iran? It is all about the global petrodollar hegemony!

Jeff Nielsen: US Economic Propaganda on The Housing Sector!

  • It never ceases to amaze me how the western MSM spend hours discussing the BS: official economic statistics, coming out of America. It is all a psyop against the easily deceived sheeple. The MSM exist to herd the sheeple in the direction their Illuminist masters dictate. It is to sell the illusion that everything is ok, the economy is recovering. Yeah right! Pigs can fly! Their only problem is landing!

    The U.S. Prison-Cell Economy! 
    by Jeff Nielson, via http://harveyorgan.blogspot.com/ 
    Every month, the U.S. propaganda machine plays the same game in the housing sector. It announces “new home starts”. Then a few days later it announces “new home sales”. But it never, ever, ever talks about the two numbers in the same news item. There is a very good reason for this: the two numbers have absolutely no connection in the real world. Month after month the U.S. government announces new home sales bouncing around a little above 300,000 units.

    However, month after month, year after year; the same propaganda machine announces new home starts at 500,000 or 600,000, and now 700,000 units per month.

    In other words, every month, year after year; the U.S. government announces that its home-builders have commenced construction on roughly twice as many units as they sell. This alone is proof of some massive deceit taking place. Obviously no business which builds double what it sells can remain in business. However this is only the beginning of the fraud with these statistics. It gets really interesting when we look at what the U.S. government is also saying about the inventories of new homes.

    So here is the question the propaganda machine will never answer: how can U.S. home-builders be constructing twice as many homes as they sell every month, while (supposedly) inventories have plummeted lower? The answer is that there is no answer. Obviously if U.S. home-builders are building more “homes” than they sell every month then inventories can only go higher and higher.
