Why do you need platinum to do this? You could take one of Obama’s turds, stamp it with the words “$1 trillion” and place it in a deposit box at the Fed. Same effect.
Considering that there are two places in the world we get platinum— Siberia, and South Africa— me thinks the russkies and their leftie pals are behind this scheme. No rational “economist” of any real pedigree would support it.
There is only a little less than a 25ft(to the3rd power) or 15,625 cubic feet of the metal ever mined if it could ever be collected in one place (according to Monex web site). The closing price on platinum Friday was 1,606/oz.
A 10 oz bar of .999 pure platinum ($16060) is (by Monex description in mm converted to inches) 2 23/64 x 1 25/64 x 19/64 in inches or .97404 cubic inches. Doing a little more number crunching, converting cubic inches to cubic feet and how many cubic feet it would take, and assuming the Friday market closing price-— for a trillion dollar coin to be made would take more cubic feet of platinum than ever mined. Assuming that amount of platinum could be collected.
That would be some size coin and impossibleUNLESS, at the same time they devalued platinum dramatically to reach the desired valuation. And, by so doing destroy our currency from that substitute standard. So it would have to be a “fake” coin— and worth— just that.
Pure utter lunacy. Or, the design of marxists to destroy a countrys currency in one move out of crisis of debt intervention without any reduction in government expense. This must be the Laura DAndrea Tyson award winner the champion of Ceaucescu Romania.
Bingo— the “Peterson Institute for International Economics” has among many other left wing whackos:
Lawrence H. Summers—former Treas. under obamao— nightmare.
Laura D’Andrea Tyson—champion of Ceaucescu’s Romania model!!
Ernesto Zedillo, former pres. of Mexico (via Salinas):- who engineered for Salinas the crash of the peso. Clinton’s Treas. Sec. Robert Rubin (he, of Goldman Sachs) floated 50 billion to Mexico to make it up— and made a tidy sum for the sack of Sachs).
The 100 year charter of the Federal Reserve Bank EXPIRES on Christmas Eve 2013. Re-approval of another X years? Now THERE is something to be advocated against. Take back our Constitutional Powers of the Congress.
Obamao is NOT Andrew Jackson-— he is a TOOL of the Federal Reserve.
Think about it folks. Greenback dollars-— OUR money— not Federal Reserve “Notes”.
It CAN be done.
Lenin and Stalin showed the way. In Russia the peasants were the least reliable politically and were starved. Here the larger farmers are already pretty firmly attached to the government teat. The target “class” would be the small businessmen and the private sector managerial class who would be sort of analagous to the Ukrainian Kulaks. These are the independent minded folks who balk at government control. The Wealthy, whom we might assume to be allergic to the communists are the easiest group to deal with. Some will join the Revolution willingly and the group is small enough that the unreliables can simply be killed or put to directed labor quickly and easily. The President already has a legal right to sequester and/or kill anyone he chooses without any sort of judicial proceedings thanks to the current version of the Homeland Security law which our 2010 Tea Party reps eagerly passed.
Correction- there was never a 99 year (or 100 year) charter for the 12 Federal Reserve Banks. It was for 20 years, and then after the 1927 McFaddin Pepper Act it read:
” To have succession after February 25, 1927, until dissolved by Act of Congress or until forfeiture of franchise for violation of law.”
So, alter what I posted. Let’s move to forfeit their franchise for major violations of law- like influencing a moron like Geithner who neither paid his taxes nor thinks there should be a limit to our national debt. Criminal influence on our govt. by the ultimate private bank.
Anyone know if the charter is EVER reviewed? Or is this something no typical politician will ever touch?
I placed my first order for silver bullion bars last night.
For once in my life, my timing looks to be impeccable!
And X amount of Food would suddenly cost 2 trillion more to buy. Idiots.
“..... for a trillion dollar coin to be made would take more cubic feet of platinum than ever mined. Assuming that amount of platinum could be collected.’.....”
I think you missed the point. The trillion dollar coins could be the size of a silver dollar or a US quarter; there’s nothing that says the coins themselves would have to have any intrinsic value besides the value of whatever amount of platinum they contain. The point would be to allow the US government to print more money and negate the need for Obama to borrow more. This is a theoretical possibility only and likely would lead to Obama’s impeachment—but only after 2014 when a new crop of Senators would come in and the damage would already have been done to the US economy and the dollar.
maybe just send em all a *reset* button or sumthing...
the bambam could then just double down and buy all our votes for a *rebate* [stimulus] check as well ???...just put 6-7 zeros on the number and have lemmings for life...
Can we use them in a vending machine when we’re thirsty?
“One Toony made of platinum to be worth 100 trillion would likely consist of the entire worlds supply of that metal ...”
Yeah but once the real Zimbabwe inflation hits there will be 100 trillion dollars worth of platinum in the catalytic convertor from a Mini Cooper.
Best part: “...and can assign them whatever value it pleases.”
What makes you think that isn't the policy, of whoever is telling George Soros and the Boys Downtown and the Fed what must happen/must not happen? Social Security, U.S. national savings (we're too comfortable), older Americans, and nationad debt must all go away. "A *thing* happened. Live with it, it's just a trend -- toward no savings, no medicines, no government, no money, and rationed food/water. It's your fault. Nothing to be done. No medz for you!! Try Soylent Green, it's nutritious."
. . . a total waste of good platinum . . .
this is what happens to all civilizations eventually . Good time to stock up on ammo and sharpen up on survival skills .
I’ve got an old pair of penny loafers in my closet. Why not just deposit them in the bank, say each is worth a trillion, and .... Ya know, whatever.
