(On Thursday, the US District Court judge overseeing the case demanded that the SEC explain how such serious securities fraud could end with the defendant neither admitting nor denying wrongdoing.) [The American Action Report's Realistic Dictionary says that the name Goldman Sachs came from the words gold + man + saxophone. It's an instrument, mostly brass, so that banksters can have congressmen dance to their tune.]
[In a large part, that's also true of the Tea Parties and the Occupy Movement. Pompous asses in the corporate media never seem to tire of ridiculing the protesters for their lack of expertise in economics, business, political science, and other fields. The protesters do know, however, that they're hurting, where they were kicked, and who kicked them. Pompous asses like Peter Schiff are telling them, in effect, "Since you're not experts as I am, you must not have a problem. Go back to sleep." Hell, the "experts" are the ones who caused the problem! Oh, one more comment on Schiff's pomposity. He seemed to be implying that the Wall Street protesters could be part of the 1% like him, if they only followed the "free market system." The truth is, the Wall Street protesters have no hope or desire to be reincarnated as part of the inbred Schiff, Rothschild, and Warburg families. Take a look at this marriage announcement from 1916 here. That should reveal the hypocrisy of the Rothschild who has infiltrated Ron Paul's campaign as an adviser.]
When I talked to Egyptians, it was clear that what animated their protest, first and foremost, was not a quest for democracy — although that was surely a huge factor. It was a quest for “justice.” Many Egyptians were convinced that they lived in a deeply unjust society where the game had been rigged by the Mubarak family and its crony capitalists. Egypt shows what happens when a country adopts free-market capitalism without developing real rule of law and institutions.
[The author of this article is giving Congress too much of a break. Congressmen are not just accomplices; they're perpetrators. Take the 2009 Bankster Bailout Bill, for example. The bailout, which saved no homeowner's home, and for which the banksters lost nothing, was a theft of $700 million. The bill ended up costing $1.2 billion because congressmen festooned the bill with funds earmarked for investments congressmen had made. That amounts to a $500 million embezzlement benefiting no one but the congressmen and their cronies. To see how your congressman voted on this criminal act, click here.]
