2017: How Insider Trading Looted the American Taxpayer

The mother of all insider trades was pulled off in 1815 when London financier Nathan Rothschild led British investors to believe that the Duke of Wellington had lost to Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo.  In a matter of hours, British government bond prices plummeted. Rothschild, who had advance information, then swiftly bought up the entire market in government bonds, acquiring a dominant holding in England’s debt for pennies on the pound.  Over the course of the nineteenth century, N. M. Rothschild would become the biggest bank in the world, and the five brothers would come to control most of the foreign-loan business of Europe. “Let me issue and control a nation’s money,” Rothschild boasted in 1838, “and I care not who writes its laws.” In the United States a century later, John Pierpont Morgan again used rumor and innuendo to create a panic that would change the course […] Read More

2015: The New “Water Barons”: Wall Street Mega-Banks are Buying up the World’s Water

A disturbing trend in the water sector is accelerating worldwide. The new “water barons” — the Wall Street banks and elitist multibillionaires — are buying up water all over the world at unprecedented pace. Familiar mega-banks and investing powerhouses such as Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup, UBS, Deutsche Bank, Credit Suisse, Macquarie Bank, Barclays Bank, the Blackstone Group, Allianz, and HSBC Bank, among others, are consolidating their control over water. Wealthy tycoons such as T. Boone Pickens, former President George H.W. Bush and his family, Hong Kong’s Li Ka-shing, Philippines’ Manuel V. Pangilinan and other Filipino billionaires, and others are also buying thousands of acres of land with aquifers, lakes, water rights, water utilities, and shares in water engineering and technology companies all over the world. The second disturbing trend is that while the new water barons are buying up water all over the world, governments are moving […] Read More

2014: Supercars Taking Steps To Go Eco-Friendly

Tesla Motors IPO was just $19 a share in 2010, and many on Wall Street thought the company was doomed for disaster. Boy, were they ever wrong? As of 5/5/2014, Tesla is trading at $216/share with specialized Tesla recharge stations starting to pop up across the country. This story of the “little electric engine that could” now looks to be one of the biggest, most daunting shadows to be cast over the car industry since the likes of Henry Ford. Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson said on October 31st, 2004, “[Supercars] are designed to melt ice-caps, kill the poor, poison the water table, destroy the ozone layer, decimate indigenous wildlife, recapture the Falkland Islands, and turn the entire Third World into a huge uninhabitable desert… but only after they’ve nicked all the world’s oil.”  10 years ago, this sentiment was amusing. Today, as we have become significantly greener as a […] Read More

2014: “The Oceans Will Rise; Nuclear Winter Will Be Upon Us; And The World As We Know It Will End”

As U.S. Justice Department prosecutors begin to bring the first criminal charges against global banks since the financial crisis, they are facing dire warnings of uncontainable collateral damage from none other than the sell-side’s banking analysts… “Don’t play with matches,” warned Brad Hintz, bringing up the specter of Enron (somehow suggesting we would better if that had not been prosecuted?) “The mere threat of requiring a hearing could cause customers to lose confidence in the institution and could cause a run on the bank,” warns a banking lawyer (well isn’t that how it’s supposed to be?). Too Big To Prosecute is starting to tarnish a little as Preet Bharara begins to bring the heat, adding, somewhat humorously that, banks have a “powerful incentive to make prosecutors believe that death or dire consequences await.” It seems Eric Holder’s words – as we noted here… “But I am concerned that the […] Read More

2006: Thirteen families effectively control the central banks

by slave Monday, Apr. 10, 2006 at 8:52 PM NEW WORLD ORDER thirteen families effectively control the central banks of all the hard-currency countries. These “control banks” all practice FRACTIONAL RESERVE BANKING, which is perfectly legal in the US. Fractional reserve banking means that the bank is only required to hold on hand the small fraction of money (5%) that is needed to cover the fraction of deposits likely to be drawn upon and cashed. Money deposited in accounts goes into a reserve upon which credit can be issued. In the US credit can be issued to seven times the reserve, in international banks (offshore establishments) twenty times the reserve can be issued as credit. It is imp[ortant to understand this concept in order to understand the larger picture. In the mid-1970s, the final phase of System 2000, a “global creditors’ unilateral totalitarian plan” was put into effect. A […] Read More

THE CLINTON CRASH

Keep your eyes on the exits folks, cause there’s a lot of people who are gonna have to squeeze through some real small doors when the fire alarm goes off. So you’d better pay careful attention to what the BIG money is doing. Once their boy Klinton is toast, they’re gonna dump U.S. paper like there’s no tomorrow. How many U.S. stocks do you think old Rockeefeller is holding right now? This enigmatic bull market has defied logic, gravity and all caution. unemployment rises-stocks go up, unemployment falls-stocks go up, interest rates fall-stocks go up, interest rates rise-stocks go up, the dollar falls-stocks go up, the dollar rises-stocks go up. What gives? Actually it’s quite simple. Bull markets are a MONETARY phenomenon rather than a financial phenomenon. In other words, its not good earnings that cause stocks to rise, its MONEY. Specifically, more buyers than sellers. It is irrelevant […] Read More

2010: Goldman Sachs: Master of the Universe

Stephen Lendman April 20, 2010 The status applies to all Wall Street giants, none, however, the equal of Goldman, the Grand Master. Like the fabled comic book Superman hero, it’s faster than its competitors, thanks to its proprietary software ability to front run markets (illegal, but no matter); more powerful than the government it controls; and able to leap past competitors, given its special status. Founded in 1869, GS calls itself “a leading global investment banking, securities and investment management firm that provides a wide range of services worldwide.” Since going public in 1999, the same year Glass-Steagall ended letting banks, insurers and securities companies combine, GS became a giant hedge fund trading against the advice given clients with the full faith and blessing of Washington – the same thing other Street giants did and profited handsomely. In his April 17 article headlined, “Goldman Sachs Vampire Squid Gets Handcuffed,” […] Read More

1996: American Death Camps

Samuel Foster We live in strange times. Suffice it to say I am a captain (not my actual rank, but at least that) in the National Guard; but I can’t tell you which state, as that information surely will be the quick road to my demise. I have faithfully served my country in Desert Storm and Panama, both events having nothing to do with the National Security safety of this Great Country of ours. My wife has the same disease I have, and the doctors are still telling me I have the flue. Does a flue last eight years? We’ll get to that later. We both are under the age of forty, but we no longer look young. Nothing can change my mind that my superiors-so-called officers and gentlemen-have murdered us. One of my duties requires me to train through the rotation with other units, the ongoing guard staff […] Read More

The Missing Security Tapes from the World Trade Center

By Susan Lindauer, former U.S. Asset and 9/11 Whistleblower Late on the night of August 23, 2001, at about 3 a.m. security cameras in the parking garage of the World Trade Center captured the arrival of two or three truck vans. Visual examination determined the vans were separate and unique from trucks used by janitorial services, including different colors and devoid of markings. More curious, all the janitorial trucks had pulled out of the Towers by about 2:30 a.m—about half an hour before the second set of vans arrived. According to my high level State Department source with a top security clearance, who disclosed the unusual nightly activity, no vans matching that description had entered the World Trade Center at such an hour in any of the weeks or months prior to that date.  It was a unique event. Security cameras caught the vans leaving the Towers at approximately […] Read More
