Dr. William K. Black: The Great American Bank Robbery

Hat tip to reader and blogger Ian Williams for sending us this phenomenal clip.  We've profiled the esteemed truth-teller countless times before and do so again with this recent speech he delivered at UCLA.  I haven't yet watched the entire 90 minutes, so I will present the short summary Ian sent along with his email:

  • "Great piece by William Black discussing what real regulators did back in his day.  He mentions that the Keating 5 literally wanted to kill him for his whistleblowing, and discusses the $400 million lawsuit they filed to muzzle him, as well as the role of the FBI was during this entire sordid mess.  Outstanding stuff all the way through.  We need all regulators like this - Mary Shapiro could learn a lesson or two."

Set aside some time to watch this one.

Just started watching this. This is awesome. At about 38:00, they start talking about all our favorite topics: What's up with Obama? Why is he listening only to failures like Summers and Geithner? WTF is going on here -- how is this fair?

At 40:20, Black rips Geithner an entire, new asshole. From scratch. Black at his brutally honest best. Don't miss.

After watching the video one thing strikingly clear is that the currupt foundation since 1913 is protected by Mr. Black. See 86:56 as he gets glib and defended by the host. The rest of what appears to be smart and witty becomes blah blah blah blah blah from a seemingly keystone kop wanna be that is Mr. Black. The most dangerous to true reform as his smarts tend to distract from proper remedy which would be to end the Fed and all central banking, replace fiat money with currency backed by value and require 100% banking reserves. All the rest is smoke and mirrors.
