Ben Bernanke makes his little announcement that neither confirms nor denies QE3, and the gold market goes down $27 in a few minutes. What shock! But there’s a much bigger picture than the Big Man pretending to state something important. There’s disaster all around, both domestically and especially internationally, and there’s nothing he can or will do about it. He’s not there to help the middle class, and he’s certainly not going to help the poor. He’s the servant of the elites, and they’re calling all the shots. So ignore today and be ready for tomorrow.
