911: Independent Investigators Challenge ‘The Official Story’

 

“We refuse to let our knowledge, however limited, be informed by your ignorance, however vast.” 
― David Ray Griffin

 

Anyone who types the words “9/11” and “conspiracy” into an online search engine soon learns that not everybody buys the official narrative of what took place on Sept. 11, 2001. As a professor emeritus at the Claremont School of Theology, 66-year-old  David Ray Griffin would seem to have more affinity for leather elbow patches than tin hats, yet after friends and colleagues prodded him into sifting through the evidence, he experienced a conversion. “For the first year and a half I just accepted the conventional view … that this was blowback for our foreign policy. When a colleague suggested to me … forces within our own government had arranged it, I didn’t accept that. Then several months later another colleague sent me a website that had a timeline. Once I … saw all those stories drawn from mainstream sources that contradicted the official account,  I decided I needed to look into it more carefully, and the more I looked, the worse it got. The fact that Building 7 … collapsed when it had not been hit by an airplane … that’s a smoking gun. The fact that standard operating procedures were not followed that morning, and we’ve gotten three different stories now by the U.S. military as to why they did not intercept the planes, that’s a smoking gun. The 9/11 commission simply ignored those questions. The official account itself is a conspiracy theory. It says that 19 Arab Muslims…conspired to pull off this operation. The question is not whether one is a conspiracy theorist about 9/11. It’s which conspiracy theory do you find most supported by the evidence?”  (source)

Flood Of Illegal Alien Children: A Government Manufactured Crisis

Zack Taylor Chairman The National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers:

“any elected member of the Executive or Legislative Branch of the U.S. Government that has not stood up and demanded that current Immigration Law be enforced vigorously since 1986 is fully and exclusively responsible for this latest invasion.”

“This is not a humanitarian crisis. It is a predictable, orchestrated and contrived assault on the compassionate side of Americans by her political leaders that knowingly puts minor Illegal Alien children at risk for purely political purposes. Certainly, we are not gullible enough to believe that thousands of unaccompanied minor Central American children came to America without the encouragement, aid and assistance of the United States Government. Anyone that has taken two six to seven year old children to an amusement park can only imagine the problems associated with bringing thousands of unaccompanied children that age up through Mexico and into the United States. I doubt even the Cartels would undertake that chore at any price. No, it has to be heartless corrupt politicians and their minions lusting for more money and power,” the release states. “Will this heartless criminal exploitation of Central American infants and children finally awaken Americans to the ruse being foisted upon them by their government, the media and other interested parties, or has America lost her ability to stand up against the tyrants and do what is right rather than what is easy? Obviously, this administration thinks you are as corrupt as they are and will vote them back into office or these young children would not be streaming into America to tug at your hearts and empty your heads of reason.”

Taylor also encouraged Americans to “to rise up and report in mass to the ballot box with fire in their hearts for the rule of law.”

BAILOUT: THE MOVIE

Youtube.com

Bailout is the tale of an unemployed Chicago lawyer who stops paying his mortgage and enlists four friends (also unemployed) to join him in a Winnebago trip to Las Vegas. Their plan is tear a page out of Wall Street’s playbook and piss away the bank’s money by gambling and partying their asses off. Along the way our gang discovers first hand how Americans have been adversely affected by the financial crisis, principally through foreclosures. S ee first-hand how politically powerful banks are systemically eliminating America’s middle class through off-shored job losses and fraudulent home foreclosures.

 

 

MAD AS HELL from sean fahey on Vimeo.

An enigma wrapped in Doc-hybrid form, Bailout is a social documentary that explores American anger with the Wall Street elites who survive and thrive on their cancerous system of bailouts, fraud, and political corruption that actively work in concert to destroy Main Street. From entry-level workers in northeast Indiana RV factories to Congressional leaders to rock stars, Bailout tells the story of recent American economic events through the mouths of people who labored through thick and thin–what it was and how it has affected us all. The film focuses on unchecked financial fraud and the refusal to punish such fraud that lies at the root of our nation’s illness, examined through the well informed filter of its lead character, John Titus and his “dukes of moral hazard”. While many financial documentaries have done a great job of enraging audiences and leaving us shaking our heads, Bailout is a call to action inspiring Americans to exercise their right to speak out against injustice and take their grievances to the streets until their voices are heard. The film features well-known personalities from both sides of the political aisle leveling blistering attacks on the anything-for-big-banks culture that pervades all of politics today. Noam Chomsky, Chris Hedges, and Yves Smith deliver critiques from the traditional “left,” counter-balanced by MSNBC’s Dylan Ratigan, Florida Tea Party co-founder Karl Denninger, and Wall Street banking analyst Christopher Whalen.

US Economy Is A House Of Cards

 

by Dr. Paul Craig Roberts

 

The US economy is a house of cards. Every aspect of it is fraudulent, and the illusion of recovery is created with fraudulent statistics.

American capitalism itself is an illusion. All financial markets are rigged. Massive liquidity poured into financial markets by the Federal Reserve’s Quantitative Easing inflates stock and bond prices and drives interest rates, which are supposed to be a measure of the cost of capital, to zero or negative, with the implication that capital is so abundant that its cost is zero and can be had for free. Large enterprises, such as mega-banks and auto manufacturers, which go bankrupt are not permitted to fail. Instead, public debt and money creation are used to cover private losses and keep corporations “too big to fail” afloat at the expense not of shareholders but of people who do not own the shares of the corporations.

 

 

 

Profits are no longer a measure that social welfare is being served by capitalism’s efficient use of resources when profits are achieved by substituting cheaper foreign labor for domestic labor, with resultant decline in consumer purchasing power and rise in income and wealth inequality. In the 21st century, the era of jobs offshoring, the US has experienced an unprecedented explosion in income and wealth inequality. I have made reference to this hard evidence of the failure of capitalism to provide for the social welfare in the traditional economic sense in my book, The Failure of Laissez Faire Capitalism, and Thomas Piketty’s just published book, Capital in the 21st Century, has brought an alarming picture of reality to insouciant economists, such as Paul Krugman. As worrisome as Piketty’s picture is of inequality, I agree with Michael Hudson that the situation is worse than Piketty describes.

Capitalism has been transformed by powerful private interests whose control over governments, courts, and regulatory agencies has turned capitalism into a looting mechanism. Wall Street no longer performs any positive function. Wall Street is a looting mechanism, a deadweight loss to society. Wall Street makes profits by front-running trades with fast computers, by selling fraudulent financial instruments that it is betting against as investment grade securities, by leveraging equity to unprecedented heights, making bets that cannot be covered, and by rigging all commodity markets.

The Federal Reserve and the US Treasury’s “Plunge Protection Team” aid the looting by supporting the stock market with purchases of stock futures, and protect the dollar from the extraordinary money-printing by selling naked shorts into the Comex gold futures market.

The US economy no longer is based on education, hard work, free market prices and the accountability that real free markets impose. Instead, the US economy is based on manipulation of prices, speculative control of commodities, support of the dollar by Washington’s puppet states, manipulated and falsified official statistics, propaganda from the financial media, and inertia by countries, such as Russia and China, who are directly harmed, both economically and politically, by the dollar payments system.

As the governments in most of the rest of the world are incompetent, Washington’s incompetence doesn’t stand out, and this is Washington’s salvation.

But it is not a salvation for Americans who live under Washington’s rule. As all statistical evidence makes completely clear, the share of income and wealth going to the bulk of the US population is declining. This decline means the end of the consumer market that has been the mainstay of the US economy. Now that the mega-rich have even more disproportionate shares of the income and wealth, what happens to an economy based on selling imports and off-shored production of goods and services to a domestic consumer market? How do the vast majority of Americans purchase more when their incomes have not grown for years and have even declined and they are too impoverished to borrow more from banks that won’t lend?

The America in which I grew up was self-sufficient. Foreign trade was a small part of the economy. When I was Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, the US still had a trade surplus except for oil. Offshoring of America’s jobs had not begun, and US earnings on its foreign investments exceeded foreign earnings on US investments. Therefore, America’s earnings abroad covered its energy deficit in its balance of trade.

The economic stability achieved during the Reagan administration was shattered by Wall Street greed. Wall Street threatened corporations with takeovers if the corporations did not produce higher profits by relocating their production of goods and services for American markets abroad. The lower labor costs boosted earnings and stock prices and satisfied Wall Street’s cravings for ever more earnings, but brought an end to the rise in US living standards except for the mega-rich. Financial deregulation loaded the economy with the risks of asset bubbles.

Americans are an amazingly insouciant people. By now any other people would have burnt Wall Street to the ground.

Washington has unique subjects. Americans will take endless abuse and blame some outside government for their predicament–Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, China, Russia. Such an insouciant and passive people are ideal targets for looting, and their economy, hollowed-out by looting, is a house of cards.

All The Presidents’ Bankers: 100 years of ‘Bromance’ Between Presidents And International Bankers

Via: Democracy Now

With U.S. inequality at its highest point since 1928 and Wall Street bonuses hitting pre-2008 levels, we look at the 100-year history of secret collusion between Washington and the financial industry. In her new book, “All the Presidents’ Bankers: The Hidden Alliances That Drive American Power,” financial journalist Nomi Prins explores how a small number of bankers have played critical roles in shaping a century’s worth of financial, foreign and domestic policy in the United States. Prins examines how these relationships have influenced events from the creation of the Federal Reserve, the response to the Great Depression, and the founding of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. Now a senior fellow at Demos, Prins is a former managing director at Bear Stearns and Goldman Sachs, and previously an analyst at Lehman Brothers and Chase Manhattan Bank.

‘I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles’ Sing The Globalists To Fleece The Public

 I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles

Lyrics

Verse 1

I’m dreaming dreams,
I’m scheming schemes,
I’m building castles high.
They’re born anew,
Their days are few,
Just like a sweet butterfly.
And as the daylight is dawning,
They come again in the morning.

Chorus

I’m forever blowing bubbles,
Pretty bubbles in the air,
They fly so high,
Nearly reach the sky,
Then like my dreams,
They fade and die.
Fortune’s always hiding,
I’ve looked everywhere,
I’m forever blowing bubbles,
Pretty bubbles in the air.

 

Economic bubbles are generated when governments work together with monopolies and cartels. The biggest monopoly is the Federal Reserve Bank, a privately owned monopoly that prints money out of nothing and charges principal and interest to the swindled debtor. Since the 1933 bank holiday by President Roosevelt, American taxpayers have been exploited by a ‘debt-money‘ system. This system ony creates the principal when a loan is made, the interest that is charged to the debtor is not created, so, like a game of musical chairs, only some of the debtors can pay off their loans. 

A debt-money system by definition is a fraud because it demands the impossible. There is not enough money in the economy for all the debtors to pay the principal+ interest because only the principal enters the economy. So debt must increase and we all, no matter how productive or wealthy, become slaves to a private monopoly enforced by the government.

Look at history: the South Sea Bubble, The French Mississippi Bank Bubble, The Roaring  20s Bubble and the crash of ’29, The numerous real estate bubbles, stock market bubbles, Dot-Com Bubble, Housing Bubble, Higher Education Bubble, Obamacare, all involve government in partnership with cartels and monopolies.

It’s a formula that worked in the past, is working right now, and will work in the future.

 Government + Monopoly =’Bubbles R Us’

Monopoly = 2 Big 2 Fail = Profits are private and only for the privileged few, while losses are public and become debts the taxpayers will pay.

‘Artificial Scarcity’ Weapon Concentrates Wealth And Power!

Artificial scarcity describes the scarcity of items even though the technology and production capacity exists to create an abundance. The term is applied to non-rival resources, i.e. those that do not diminish due to one person’s use, although there are other resources which could be categorized as artificially scarce. The inefficiency associated with artificial scarcity is formally known as a deadweight loss.   (Wikipedia)

Scarcity may be a weapon manufactured to concentrate wealth and power or advance an agenda.

The State Of The Union 2014: Analysis Of What’s Really Going On!

The State Of The Union 2014 as delivered by Barrack Obama does not reflect the reality that I observe happening in America.  Obama and ‘Government Statistics‘, as reported by the ‘Presstitutes‘ in the lamestream media, paint a rosy picture of Americas’ culture, politics, economics and foreign policy. We are told that ‘things’ are improving. Oh really?
