Economic Hitmen – an Animated Short

John Perkins, author of Confessions of an Economic Hitman, narrates an animated short, briefly explaining how banking cartels such as the IMF turn sovereign countries into debt slaves, build corporation-nations, and enrich the rich.

Perkins, a former chief economist at Boston strategic-consulting firm Chas. T. Main, says he was an “economic hit man” for 10 years, helping U.S. intelligence agencies and multinationals cajole and blackmail foreign leaders into serving U.S. foreign policy and awarding lucrative contracts to American business. “Economic hit men (EHMs) are highly paid professionals who cheat countries around the globe out of trillions of dollars,” Perkins writes.

Confessions of an Economic Hit Man is an extraordinary and gripping tale of intrigue and dark machinations.

Perkins writes that his economic projections cooked the books Enron-style to convince foreign governments to accept billions of dollars of loans from the World Bank and other institutions to build dams, airports, electric grids, and other infrastructure he knew they couldn’t afford. The loans were given on condition that construction and engineering contracts went to U.S. companies. Often, the money would simply be transferred from one bank account in Washington, D.C., to another one in New York or San Francisco....

Sometimes, I just don’t have the words to describe the utter nonsense I hear from some people.

This man seems to be a “leader” within his small Occupy group as I’ve seen him on NUMEROUS YouTube videos leading marches, chants, general assemblies, and more.  There are hundreds, if not thousands, who follow this blond-haired, pimple-faced Sociology major who espouses an incredible disdain for personal freedom and liberty.  Instead, he promotes a State-led, subserviant lifestyle “where the government injects cash into people’s bank accounts.”  What he forgets is that the Constitution clearly states that Congress shall have the power of the purse, not a private banking cartel who works on Wall Street; the very street he claims to be protesting!

“Freedom from want…,” as he describes it.  I call it a lazy Utopian fantasy.  Continued below…

But that’s just my opinion.  I’m sure Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Andrew Jackson, Benjamin Franklin, and many more would agree with me.  Keynesian economics and quantitative easing has not, nor will it, help the economy....

I couldn’t believe what I heard on Tuesday night’s Bloomberg Debate. Well, okay, I guess I could believe it, but let me qualify my recantation. There was always something about Cain that made him come off as a man who isn’t above deception. It probably has something to do with the fact that I don’t trust former Federal Reserve Chairmen. Still, I was surprised, not because because he lied, but what he lied about.

When they started the segment of the debate where each candidate could ask their own question, I knew that Paul was going to hammer Cain. However, I was hoping it was going to be on Herman Cain’s credibility on economic issues. Arguably, it would have been a much better question. Arguably, this could be seen as a missed opportunity on Ron Paul’s part, but hindsight may prove it better for Ron Paul to have kept that card in reserve. Instead of asking a question that would have highlighted his own credentials, Paul came out in defense of the countless grassroots supporters that pester Herman Cain on the issue of auditing the Federal Reserve....

As the Occupy Wall Street events continue to expand and unfold, I’ve tried to keep tabs on my local event, Occupy OKC.  When this first started, I was elated at the idea of the common People finally getting off of their couch and protesting their grievances towards an out of control government.  But I was sadly mistaken.  Instead, as each new day passes, I hear and see more of these protesters demanding rights and privileges that I would be willing to take up arms to fight against.  The very problems that got me involved in politics and protesting are what most of the Occupy protesters are wanting.

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquillity of servitude more than the animating contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.” – Samuel Adams

The Second Bill of Rights

If you’re a Wall Street behemoth, there are endless opportunities to privatize profits and socialize losses beyond collecting trillions of dollars in bailouts from taxpayers. One of the ingenious methods that has remained below the public’s radar was started by the Rudy Giuliani administration in New York City in 1998. It’s called the Paid Detail Unit and it allows the New York Stock Exchange and Wall Street corporations, including those repeatedly charged with crimes, to order up a flank of New York’s finest with the ease of dialing the deli for a pastrami on rye.

Hayden’s Note:

Having worked for the New Orleans Police Dept. for 5 years, I had the opportunity to work numerous paid details.  I also saw the insanely corrupt side to “details.”  Many officers would technically be on the clock as a police officer, while also being paid $25-35 per hour for a private detail.  This involved many mid-level officers, all the way to the upper echelon.  Some officers would be on several different paid details at once while on the clock.  ...

Chris Burris, writing for Lew Rockwell’s website yesterday, makes a good point about the Occupy Wall Street movement – they are barking up the wrong tree.


Democracy? How about a constitutionally limited republic?

Instead of occupying a park outside of Wall Street, they should march en masse to 33 Liberty Street. That’s where the New York Federal Reserve is located. In addition, they should take their chants and drums to the Harold Pratt House on 58 E. 68th Street at Park Avenue. The Council On Foreign Relations does business at that address.

If the Occupiers had a clue, they would go after the power elite instead of their workers down on Wall Street.

“But they won’t be led to confront the gods on Mount Olympus by their Judas goats and media shills,” Burris writes with an appropriate degree of sarcasm. “David Rockefelle­r, Pete Peterson, Warren Buffett, David Koch and Henry Kissinger might be held up from lunch at 21.”

In addition to Rockefeller and the CFR, protesters in Washington, DC, should immediately march on the North American headquarters of the Trilateral Commission, situated at 1156 Fifteen Street, NW, and make their demands known....

The Occupy Wall Street crowd has become predictably focused on issues like taxing the middle class and moderately “rich,” ending capitalism and even re-electing Obama to ‘fight’ the very elites who pushed him into power. Focus should instead be on the real source of power for the out-of-control bankster class- the private, unaccountable Federal Reserve bank that creates money out of thin air, issues secret loans to insiders and foreign governments, and systematically institutes debt on the American people through their undue powers.

With this in mind, Alex Jones is calling on patriots to “occupy” branches of the Federal Reserve, with plans to appear at three locations in Texas this weekend in Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio.  Further, people everywhere should converge upon Fed locations in their area to raise awareness about the real culprit behind the economic crisis.

Well-meaning protesters who have joined the Occupy Wall Street effort, including solidarity activities in cities everywhere, need to be educated about the power held by this insidious institution, as well as the false solutions that have been proposed by leading figures on the left and right that only further expand the scope of big government, all while avoiding the elephant in the room....

I have no words to express the sheer lunacy of the following report:

There’s something else happening here. Some investors are not confident with what gold is backed by, or if it’s backed by anything at all, as compared to something like the US dollar. Investors are comfortable that the U.S. dollar is backed by the American government, so no matter what is happening to the American economy, something like the U.S. dollar is backed by the Federal Reserve …that’s going to be around a year from now. That’s a much more comfortable investment for them.

Either the YesMen have infiltrated Italy’s biggest, and most undercapitalied, bank, or the stress of constant, repeated lying and prevarication has finally gotten to the very people who know their livelihoods hang by a thread, and the second the great ponzi is unwound their jobs, careers, and entire way of life will be gone. Such as the head of UniCredit global securities Attila Szalay-Berzeviczy, and former Chairman of the Hungarian stock exchange, who has written an unbelievable op-ed in the Hungarian portal Index.hu which, frankly, make Alessio “BBC Trader” Rastani’s provocative speech seem like a bedtime story.

Only this time one can’t scapegoat Szalay-Berzeviczy “naivete” on inexperience or the desire to gain public prominence. If someone knows the truth, it is the guy at the top of UniCredit, which we expect to promptly trade limit down once we hit print.

Among the stunning allegations (stunning in that an actual banker dares to tell the truth) are the following: “the euro is “practically dead” and Europe faces a financial earthquake from a Greek default“… “The euro is beyond rescue”… “The only remaining question is how many days the hopeless rearguard action of European governments and the European Central Bank can keep up Greece’s spirits.”….”A Greek default will trigger an immediate “magnitude 10” earthquake across Europe....

If you believe Ben Bernanke and his merry band of money printers don’t care about what you think, then consider the latest product development proposal from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. According to RFP (Request for Proposal) 6994, the Fed intends to build a real-time monitoring solution capable of mining and aggregating data across social networks like Facebook and Twitter, alternative news web sites and blogs, video sharing web sites, and mainstream media outlets.

Not only do they care about what you think, they want to know exactly who you are, what language you speak, who you’re talking to, where you’re getting your information, who you are sharing it with, and what your sentiment and emotional state is in reference to that specific moment.

BBC Speechless as Trader Tells Truth: “The Collapse is Coming…Goldman Sachs Rules the World”

Posted on Sep 27, 2011 in Economic News, Federal Reserve & Bankers

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

Alessio Rastani, a trader, talks to the BBC rather candidly about the inevitable crash of the Eurozone, the stock market and puts things into simple terms.

“This economic crisis is like a cancer….if you just wait…it’s going to keep growing… and it will be too late.”

“Governments don’t rule the world…Goldman Sachs rules the world.  Goldman Sachs doesn’t care about this rescue package and neither do the other big funds.”

He then goes into some simple strategies, such as hedging and protecting your current assets and predicts that within 12 months, millions of peoples’ savings will be wiped out.  He also comments on the 1930’s Great Depression and notes that it was used by a select few to become rich.

However!… I certainly would not be putting my faith and money into US Treasury Bonds OR the US Dollar.  Gold, silver, land, firearms, long-term food and other tangibles will be worth far more than 30-year bonds if a collapse occurs.  Why do you think the Federal Reserve is only investing in short-term bonds?  There will be no Treasury Bonds in 30 years.  ...

Will global financial markets reach a breaking point during the month of October?  Right now there are all kinds of signs that the financial world is about to experience a nervous breakdown.  Massive amounts of investor money is being pulled out of the stock market and mammoth bets are being made against the S&P 500 in October.  The European debt crisis continues to grow even worse and weird financial moves are being made all over the globe.  Does all of this unusual activity indicate that something big is about to happen?  Let’s hope not.  But historically, the biggest stock market crashes have tended to happen in the fall.  So are we on the verge of a “Black October”?

The following are 21 signs that something big is about to happen in the financial world and that global financial markets are on the verge of a nervous breakdown….

#1 We are seeing an amazing number of bets against the S&P 500 right now.  According to CNN, the number of bets against the S&P 500 rose to the highest level in a year last month. ...

George Soros, billionaire financier, chairman of a Cayman Islands based private hedge fund, and Grand Master of the world’s chess board, is weighing in on the European crisis and details some of the problems faced by Europe, as well as some proposed solutions. Love him or hate him, Mr. Soros is a major player and holds significant influence, therefore we stress that his comments should not be ignored.

By all accounts, the situation in Europe is very serious, though news coverage suggests (and has continued to suggest for nearly two years) that the crisis is just days from a final resolution.

While Europe is an ocean away and their problems are seemingly isolated to only the Eurozone region, we simply cannot ignore the implications of a European collapse on the American economy. History provides a clue as to how bad things can get even when the triggering events happen in other countries. While we often look back at the catalyst for the Great Depression as being the October 1929 stock market crash, the reality is that the Great Depression went global and full force when European nations defaulted on their debt obligations and their economies crumbled.

Tony Blair Visited Libya Multiple Times to Lobby for JP Morgan

A senior executive with the Libyan Investment Authority, the $70 billion fund used to invest the country’s oil money abroad, said Tony Blair was one of three prominent western businessmen who regularly dealt with Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, son of the former leader.h

Saif al-Islam and his close aides oversaw the activities of the fund, and often directed its officials on where they should make its investments, he said.

The executive, speaking on condition of anonymity, said officials were told the “ideas” they were ordered to pursue came from Mr. Blair as well as one other British businessman and a former American diplomat.

“Tony Blair’s visits were purely lobby visits for banking deals with JP Morgan,” he said.

Hayden’s Note:

It’s interesting to note that after resigning as Prime Minister of the UK, a position he held for 10 years and was a good little Globalist puppet, he was appointed as the official Envoy of the Quartet on the Middle East. In May, 2008, Blair launched his Tony Blair Faith Foundation.  This was followed in July, 2009 by the launching of the Faith and Globalisation Initiative with Yale University in the USA, Durham University in the UK and the National University of Singapore in Asia to deliver a postgraduate programme in partnership with the Foundation....

Hayden’s Note:

It is interesting to note that this program was sponsored by ScottTrade and appeared on Yahoo Finance.  Just some food for thought…  It’s becoming a mainstream, legitimate concern.  What have you done to hedge yourself against a potential collapse?

The Ayn Rand Institute held its annual “Atlas Shrugged Revolution” dinner Thursday night in New York City.

In attendance were a number of financial luminaries and hedge fund managers, including Peter Schiff of EuroPacific Capital, John Tamny of RealClearMarkets, Dmitry Balyasny of Balyasny Asset Management and Scott Schweighauser of Aurora Investment Management.

The setting was the tony St. Regis Hotel on Fifth Avenue but there was nothing pleasant about the primary message coming from both the speakers and those in attendance: Western civilization is heading for hell and a hand basket, just like Rand predicted in her seminal novel.

In the accompanying video, ARI president Yaron Brook tells Henry why Rand’s devotees believe the global economy is “heading for collapse.”

In a nutshell, Brook believes politicians and policymakers have “no solutions” for the problems facing the globe....
