Operation Twist and Shout: Fed Launches Stealth Attack On Pensions

As predicted, the Federal Reserve has decided to foist QE 3 on America, but instead of naming it after its dismal failure siblings, the non-government agency is calling it “Operation Twist,” which is basically twisting the bond yield curve by snatching up longer dated bonds.

Peter Schiff breaks down Operation Twist.

The Fed will purchase $400 billion of Treasuries with maturities between 6 and 30 years before the end of June 2012 and will sell the same amount with maturities of 3 years or less.

“This is an agreement to continue QE2 in a low-grade way,” Tad Rivelle, chief investment officer for fixed income at TCW, told CNN.

Not surprisingly – because the financial elite always tell us stuff way in advance – this represents nothing short of an under-handed attack on pension funds.

“There’s a stealth attack on and I think it’s going to be very bad news for many pension funds,” said Bengt Saelensminde of MoneyWeek. “This is going to hit our pension fund industry hard. Frankly, it’s the last thing the industry needs. I’d go as far as to say that this could be the straw that breaks the camel’s back for many of our already struggling funds.”

The attack against people on fixed incomes and retirees began several years ago in earnest. In October of 2008, Congress’ top budget analyst estimated that Americans’ retirement plans lost as much as $2 trillion in a fifteen month period. Bernanke’s latest bogus effort to “stimulate” the economy will accelerate the pace considerably.

The establishment media admits the Fed is going after old folks: “The Federal Reserve’s ‘Operation Twist’ to bring down bond yields and stimulate the economy is likely to cause pain for the nation’s largest pension funds, already struggling with funding shortfalls from the recent stock market decline,” Reuters reports today.

In order to add insult to pain, the Fed also said there is “significant downside risks to the economic outlook, including strains in global financial markets.”

In other words, QE1 and its sick brother QE2 did nothing beyond expand the money supply and add to the pace of inflation now gaining momentum. As Ron Paul has noted, inflation is created by the private bankster-owned Federal Reserve and represents a hidden tax on the American people.

In addition to sabotaging pensions (and lowering the life expectancy of millions), the Fed is once again gifting the hedge fund racketeers who are increasingly getting retirement fund allocations to take bigger risks to offset lower fixed portfolio returns, as Money Morning notes.

Instead of merely calling this thing “Operation Twist,” let’s call it “Operation Twist and Shout” because by the time the Fed and the globalists are finished with us, we’l

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's happening big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale".

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer if you need to or buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) then I could do with some. Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why/

Why?

Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent
false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material. Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and #altnews alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
