Wall Street-owned media group “Clarín” spearheading anti-government drive in South America’s Argentina. 

The US-engineered “Arab Spring” brought us the “April 6 Youth Movement” in Egypt, run by Wall Street-backed Mohammed El Baradei in coordination with the Muslim Brotherhood, the “February 17 Revolution,” consisting of Al Qaeda terrorists of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group in Libya, and now Argentina has the “8N,” or “November 8″ movement working in coordination with foreign-owned Argentinian media group, “Clarín.”

Clarin has been enthusiastically supporting the protesters and laying the rhetorical groundwork justifying their street presence.

The Guardian reported in their article, “Argentina protests: up to half a million rally against Fernández de Kirchner,” that (emphasis added):

Word of the demonstration spread through social networks. Many organisers remain anonymous, but Mariana Torres, administrator of the Facebook page El Anti-K, one of the most active in calling for the rally, said she was delighted: “It was a true feast for democracy.”

There was no single cause of discontent. Many in the middle class are angry at the highest inflation in a decade, estimated at a yearly 25% by private economists, currency controls that have created a black market in dollars, and one of the slowest economic growth rates in Latin America.

Swiss Study Shows 147 Technocratic “Super Entities” Rule the World

The Swiss Federal Institute (SFI) in Zurich released a study entitled “The Network of Global Corporate Control” that proves a small consortium of corporations – mainly banks – run the world. A mere 147 corporations which form a “super entity” have control 40% of the world’s wealth; which is the real economy. These mega-corporations are at the center of the global economy. The banks found to be most influential include:

• Barclays
• Goldman Sachs
• JP Morgan Chase & Co
• Vanguard Group
• UBS
• Deutsche Bank
• Bank of New York Melon Corp
• Morgan Stanley
• Bank of America Corp
• Société Générale

However as the connections to the controlling groups are networked throughout the world, they become the catalyst for global financial collapse.

James Glattfelder, complex systems theorist at the SFI explains: “In effect, less than one per cent of the companies were able to control 40 per cent of the entire network.”

Using mathematic models normally applied to natural systems, the researchers analyzed the world’s economy....

Romney’s VP Choice, Paul Ryan: Insider Trading, Bailouts, and Goldman Sachs

He babbles about Ayn Rand, but when it comes to his actions, Paul Ryan is a thief right out of the John Maynard Keynes school of using government for insider profit gains.

In September of 2008, Ryan sold stock in several US banks on the same day he attended confidential meetings involving top level officials disclosing that the banking sector was headed for a deep crisis. He immediately sold his stock in troubled banks, including Wachovia and Citigroup.

Not long after the meeting, Wachovia’s already troubled share price went into free fall. It plunged 39% on the afternoon of September 26th.

Citigroup’s share price also fell soon after the meeting. Most interesting, though, while selling other bank stocks, Ryan bought shares that day in Goldman Sachs.

September 18th, 2008, was a Thursday. On the following Tuesday, Warren Buffet announced that the company he controls, Berkshire Hathaway, was making a $5 billion investment in Goldman Sachs. The stock soared after the news. Buffett’s plan to buy Goldman stock was likely discussed at the meeting that Ryan attended. ...

Carl Icahn Accumulates 7.5% Stake in Chesapeake Energy, and His Angry Letter to the CHK Board

Recall when Zero Hedge said two weeks ago that in the age of ZIRP, corporate balance sheets simply do not matter. The reason for that conclusion was of course the endless public debates over whether Chesapeake’s massively overleveraged capital structure would lead to its demise.

Our view was that while balance sheets certainly matter in a normal market, one not dominated by central planning and endless hunger for yield, in the new ZIRP normal, none of the old school metrics of solvency, viability or even profitability matter. One person who appears to have agreed with our assessment, and put his money where his mouth is, or $775MM more specifically, is none other than legendary corporate raider Carl Icahn, who minutes ago announced that funds controlled by Icahn have raised their stake in CHK to 7.56%, making him the second biggest holder of the stock, and in a letter just sent to the CHK Board, in rather angry tones, demanded 2 board seats for his own representatives and 2 for Chesapeake’s largest shareholder Southeastern Asset Management....

Wouldn’t it be great if a Republican presidential candidate could just buy the support of just about every major conservative talk show host in America?  Well, it may not be as far-fetched as you may think.

Hayden’s Note:

This is a very important article to read, especially towards the end. Look at the campaign contributions, the media influence, and how easily Mitt has purchased his popularity.  Staggering.  I truly thought he would be running on the Democratic ticket!

Clear Channel owns more radio stations (850) than anyone else in the United States.  They also own Premiere Radio Networks, the company that syndicates the radio shows of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Glenn Beck, among others.  Needless to say, Clear Channel basically owns conservative talk radio in the United States.  So who owns Clear Channel?  Well, it turns out that Bain Capital is one of the primary owners of Clear Channel.  Yes, you read that correctly.  The company that Mitt Romney ran for so long is one of the “big bosses” over virtually all conservative talk radio in America....

Here they are - the Financial Stability Board has released a list of 29 banks that it considers global systemically important financial institutions (G-SIFISs) and thus, considered Too Big To Fail.

The initial list of G-SIFIS:

Belgium: Dexia
China: Bank of China
France: Banque Populaire, BNP Paribas, Crédit Agricole, Société Générale
Germany: Commerzbank, Deutsche Bank
Italy: Unicredit
Japan: Mitsubishi, Mizuho, Sumitomo Mitsui
Netherlands: ING
Spain: Santander
Sweden: Nordea
Switzerland: Credit Suisse, UBS
UK: Barclays, HSBC, Lloyds, Royal Bank of Scotland
US: Bank of America, Bank of New York Mellon, Citigroup, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Morgan Stanley, State Street, Wells Fargo

Hayden’s Note:

It should be pointed out that most of the US “Too Big to Fails” are the major share holders of the Federal Reserve system and the foreign banks are the very ones that Ben Bernanke sent hundreds of billions of dollars to in the last major “bailout.”  The very bailout in which he refused to answer Congressional questions in regards to which foreign banks received American taxpayer money (but was later discovered in the partial audit co-sponsored by Ron Paul)....

$1.2 Billion Missing from MF Global Under Jon Corzine – Former US Senator, Head of Goldman Sachs, Governor of NJ Thumbnail

The amount of customer funds missing from accounts at the bankrupt brokerage MF Global “may be as much as $1.2 billion or more,” the trustee overseeing the firm’s liquidation said Monday.

Hayden’s Note:

MF Global.  The Mutha’ F****** Global Collapse.

That would be roughly double previous estimates of about $600 million.

In a statement, trustee James W. Giddens said the estimate is preliminary and “may well change.”

MF Global collapsed while under the leadership of Jon S. Corzine, who was previously governor of New Jersey, a U.S. senator, and the head of Goldman Sachs. MF Global made costly bets on European government bonds.

A variety of federal and industry authorities, including the FBI, have been trying to track down money that should have been kept in customer accounts.

“At present, the Trustee believes that even if he recovers everything that is at US depositories, the apparent shortfall in what MF Global management should have segregated at U.S. depositories may be as much as $1.2 billion or more,” the trustee said in the Monday statement....

Mario Monti, who will lead the Italian government after Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi resigned, has an interesting resume.  Let’s take a look at who will be in charge of Italy’s new economic direction and dealings with, among other things, the soon-to-be acquired Libyan oil.  Prior to the NATO invasion, Italy relied upon Libya for 85% of their oil.  I’m sure they’ll be getting a much better discount package nowadays, having taken part in the NATO operation to “liberate” the country and assassinate its leader.

  • European Chairman for the Trilateral Commission, a Rockefellar think-tank.
  • Prominent member of the secretive Bilderberg Group.
  • International adviser to Goldman Sachs and Coca-Cola.

Rajat K. Gupta, a former Goldman Sachs director and McKinsey & Company chief executive, surrendered to the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Wednesday morning to face charges of insider trading, the latest development in the government’s multiyear crackdown on illegal activity on Wall Street.

Hayden’s Note:

This article reads like a typical resume of the Global Elite and is a corrupt melting pot of insider information across the spectrum.  Harvard, American Airlines, Goldman, the FDA, Proctor & Gamble, Bill Gates …  Makes me think of the massive insider trading that occurred just prior to 9/11 against American Airlines and United.  Hmmm.  Wonder if he was a part of that, too…?

In charging Mr. Gupta, the government will tie up one of the biggest loose ends resulting from the investigation into the Galleon Group, which began nearly five years ago at the Securities and Exchange Commission. Since then, more than two dozen people have pleaded guilty or been convicted of swapping illegal tips around company earnings and other major corporate events....

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.  ...

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....

Martial Law, Economic Meltdown & Executive Orders

We have all watched in predicted horror as the financial infrastructure of America has been disassembled in a predetermined fashion by the likes of Goldman Sachs, the Federal Reserve and other Globalists.  There are a variety of reasons why this is happening, none of which we have the power to change or alter in time to save us.  Therefore, I will focus on what is to come and how we might handle it in order to survive it.

With the Federal Reserve actually suggesting that inflation might be the cure to the weak economy, massive unemployment numbers and a crashing dollar, one has to stop and ponder.  The chairman of the Fed, Ben Bernanke, was a child prodigy, scored a near perfect SAT score, focused his studies around the Great Depression and is a statistical genius.  So why is he so willing to abuse the Dollar and essentially sign the death warrant for America?

For several years, many prominent people have been predicting this exact scenario.  Gerald Celente, Ron Paul, Peter Schiff and others including the Web Bots Project, have detailed how this orchestrated financial implosion will occur. ...

BofA Warns Upcoming “Desperate Measures” by Authorities Will Result in Another 2008 Market Collapse

Posted on Aug 22, 2011 in Economic News

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

Last week we had Citigroup warning that the market bottom is about to fall out, as the Fed is more than likely to disappoint already very lofty expectations (according to various estimates from both Goldman and the second Tier banks, i.e., all of them, the market has priced in roughly $500 billion in QE3 already).

Today, Bank of America, which may or may not be with us much longer, has taken this desperate alarmism several notches further, and is warning that due to the gridlock in both the fiscal (“fiscal authorities have bombarded the markets with a quadraphonic message of hopelessness”) and monetary (“the Fed is out of bullets anyway”) stimulative pathways, the likely outcome of anything from DC will be nothig short of a disaster.

To wit: “rather than a repeat of 2010, when the Fed saved the day with QE2, we think we are moving closer to a repeat of 2008, when major policy errors devastated the economy.”  For once we actually agree with Bank of America: “In our view, the pressure to “do something” is now far more likely to result in more desperate or radical measures, even if it is bad policy.” Does this mean that we are looking at a TARP “vote down” market reaction this Friday if indeed the chairman disappoints?...

SEC Whistleblower Exposes Wall Street Crimes, Destroyed Records

Posted on Aug 18, 2011 in Economic News, Federal Reserve & Bankers

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

Imagine a world in which a man who is repeatedly investigated for a string of serious crimes, but never prosecuted, has his slate wiped clean every time the cops fail to make a case. No more Lifetime channel specials where the murderer is unveiled after police stumble upon past intrigues in some old file – “Hey, chief, didja know this guy had two wives die falling down the stairs?” No more burglary sprees cracked when some sharp cop sees the same name pop up in one too many witness statements. This is a different world, one far friendlier to lawbreakers, where even the suspicion of wrongdoing gets wiped from the record.

That, it now appears, is exactly how the Securities and Exchange Commission has been treating the Wall Street criminals who cratered the global economy a few years back. For the past two decades, according to a whistle-blower at the SEC who recently came forward to Congress, the agency has been systematically destroying records of its preliminary investigations once they are closed. By whitewashing the files of some of the nation’s worst financial criminals, the SEC has kept an entire generation of federal investigators in the dark about past inquiries into insider trading, fraud and market manipulation against companies like Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank and AIG.
