I started this blog in 2008-09 as I watched then President Bush and Treasury Secretary Paulson pull off the greatest theft in the history of the world. The lame ducks needed help. They needed a complicit Congress, bought and paid for well in advance- by a banking complex so corrupt that it makes the Italian Mob look like pikers. I have never really gotten over what happened. I think it's the cop in me.
In fact, I marvel to this very day at a distracted and indifferent citizenry. Citizens so intellectually removed from the process for whatever reason- that they truly can be described as sheep.
Throughout the history of the United States, knowledgeable politicians knew the dangers of a central bank. Most citizens did too. President Jackson single handedly destroyed a central bank. Up until 1913, Americans were able to repel the efforts of scheming bankers. Eventually the bankers snuck through the back door and for the past 100 years, they have been waiting. Their destruction of financial markets has been so complete- you can hardly believe it even as you witness it.
Here then is the story of the 12 member Federal Reserve Board. One man and 11 patsies, unelected and accountable to nobody, stealing the wealth of every hard working American. The video is 35 minutes long. You can load it and cut off the first four minutes. (introductions) Well worth your time and not too dry... as these things tend to be.
