    Default The money came from the US Federal Reserve, and the purchase was laundered...

    Is the Fed “tapering”? Did the Fed really cut its bond purchases during the three month period November 2013 through January 2014? Apparently not if foreign holders of Treasuries are unloading them.

    From November 2013 through January 2014 Belgium with a GDP of $480 billion purchased $141.2 billion of US Treasury bonds. Somehow Belgium came up with enough money to allocate during a 3-month period 29 percent of its annual GDP to the purchase of US Treasury bonds.

    Certainly Belgium did not have a budget surplus of $141.2 billion. Was Belgium running a trade surplus during a 3-month period equal to 29 percent of Belgium GDP?

    No, Belgium’s trade and current accounts are in deficit.

    Did Belgium’s central bank print $141.2 billion worth of euros in order to make the purchase?

    No, Belgium is a member of the euro system, and its central bank cannot increase the money supply.

    So where did the $141.2 billion come from?

    There is only one source. The money came from the US Federal Reserve, and the purchase was laundered through Belgium in order to hide the fact that actual Federal Reserve bond purchases during November 2013 through January 2014 were $112 billion per month.

    Anyone here surprised @ the FED's antics? Theie bullion banks have Ben caught out red handed shorting PM's & merely had their hands slapped only to resume business all the while.


    They are cut-throat businessmen who stoop to any level to ensure their baby stops crying. Too bad when the baby grows up & learns it's been deceived. That is, if it ever does grow up.....

    Hmmm.... the whole system is out of order. Stuff like this is how our current regime can say that UI extensions and EBT, bailouts, etc... benefits and improves our economy.

    What's the saddest thing about all this to me, is the majority buys the PC BS our regime spews threw their media lackeys. Which means that when the system finally fails the majority will blame who ever the government/instigator of lies says. Right now that appears to be the small business owners and whats left of the producers. You know, all those people who didn't build that....class warfare.

    Belgium is host to some of the largest banks and financial service companies (e.g. Euroclear) in Europe and the transition to Basel III this year is requiring higher quality capital. The timing is driven by specific issues in Europe and has nothing to do with the taper.

    Furthermore, concerning the LCR (Liquidity Coverage Ratio) that was introduced with the Basel III regulations, all banks have to achieve a LCR of 100% by January 1st 2019. In order to boost this ratio, banks have to buy HQLA (High Quality Liquid Assets) which is mainly best done by government bonds. However, when the EU translated the Basel III regulations into law with the Credit Requirement Regulations (CRR) they wanted European banks to obtain the LCR of 100% by 2018. Finally, the Belgian Regulators (NBB), are forcing all Belgian banks to be compliant to the 100% LCR by January 1st 2015.

    Really they have no choice. Our government can tell them to pony up or it will false flag itself and blame them. Then when everything turns to **** instead of blaming our leaders we will blame them. So at the end of the day it will be poor people killing poor people while the oligarch becomes the untouchable general. Get "Them" will never happen. They will thin the herd through its natural herd mentality.
