THIS IS WHAT I PREDICTED WAS GOING TO HAPPEN!
Bernanke is acting just like a CEO who is suspected of embezzling from his own company and decides to burn the building down before the auditors can look at the books!
The Federal Reserve is NOT your friend. It does NOT provide a service. It is and always has been a scam to transfer wealth from the people to the owners of the Fed and Bernanke's threat to crash the whole system is a giant neon sign on the building flashing "GUILTY AS HELL!"
