On November 17th, A.D. 2011, Ann Barnhardt–the president of Barnhardt Capital Management–wrote a letter announcing her decision to close her investment company and explained her reasons for doing so.
She’s closing in reaction to the recent collapse of MF Global–which she attributes to the criminal acts of MFG president Jon Corzine and the increasingly corrupt nation of American markets.
As you may know, Jon Corzine is: a former governor of New Jersey–one of our nation’s most honest and ethical states; a former member of the U.S. Senate–one of nation’s most honest and ethical institutions; a former CEO of Goldman Sachs–another or our nation’s most honest and ethical institutions; and a member of the Democratic Party–one of the nation’s two most honest and ethical political parties.
Mr. Cozine’s seemingly honest and apparently trustworthy visage appears at right. He’s even wearing an American flag lapel pin. (As an aside, you should note that if and when the Antichrist comes, he will not appear as a scowling, antisocial version of Flash Gordon’s Emperor Ming. Instead, the Antichrist will be highly popular, “likable as Hell,” and probably smiling almost incessantly. The Antichrist will, in short, emulate Mr. Conzine’s affable appearance–at least, initially.)
Miss Barnhardt’s letter’s candor is astonishing. If her reasons are correct, the recent collapse of MF Global in the commodities exchange will quite probably trigger an economic event similar to the global recession which followed the collapse of Lehman Brothers in A.D. 2008.
