Congratulations to the cast and crew of Inside Job. Just outstanding work, and oh so timely too.

And one I'm-not-worthy-genuflection to Charles Ferguson, a kind and soft-spoken man with the balls to say the truth no matter where he is.

DAMN YOU DB!!!! Why do you make me watch these videos?

Mishkin exposed as another criminal co-conspirator in the financial Ponzi scheme we call the Federal Reserve. Yet, nothing will happen to him. If there are any Icelandic people who want to shoot or otherwise hurt Mishkin, if I sit on the jury I will find you not guilty.

First he writes a bullshit paper with no research...then he violates professional conduct by not disclosing his payment for the paper...and he's tenured at Columbia with CNBC appearances monthly...

He's an idiot, and that is why he did not understand nor comprehend the term "conflict of interest". He doesn't give a shit about you. He got paid, and that is all he cares about. And could not tell the difference between stability and instability.

Speaking of conflicts of interest, this interview is a Must Listen. Dylan Ratigan with Glenn Greenwald.


Especially at about 30 mins into the interview, they start talking about how it is that Dylan even has a show on a mainstream network, how for people like Glenn and Dylan the "cause" becomes the career and how people like them are impossible to silence or pressure in the same way that Chuck Todd is.

Great stuff.

Fred Mishkin is a whore...wonder if CNBC will run this clip before Fred is, once again, introduced to spew his Fed-o-Phlie love to the masses (while Liesman masturbates under the table)...

Cannot wait to see Inside Job. Please tell me Ferguson told the Columbia Dean that his own Fred violated Columbia's standards re: disclosing conflicts. Will Fred be "sanctioned" by Columbia?

Instability vs. Stability..."typo"...classic...

The entire nation is in a bind of GIGANTIC FRAUD. The taxpayers are forced to purchase gigantic companies, and then pay ourselves dividends by continuing to write blank checks to these companies. Who is holding the checkbook in this counry?
There is way to organize, and hold the banksters accountable. The grass roots efforts already taking hold.
At WallStreetClassAction.com we organize a class action against the banks, the ratings agencies and other financial institutions involved in staging the colossal securitization fraud and subsequently crashing the economy and resulting in over $5 Trillion in asset losses in the US alone.Wall Street monopolistic, essentially rogue financial entities have destroyed the fabric of our society and broke our laws, making a mockery of fiscal prudence, ethics and justice. Even our very government is controlled and manipulated (by being an interdependent collosal trap) by this highly illegal banctel, where bank executive officers “retire” or transition into various government regulatory and controllership positions, futher aiding and abetting the ongoing fraud. And when the overleverages casino style betting and back-hedging finally tipples over and out of control, the losses are effectively socialized, while the injured parties are thrown out on the street.
By having repealed the essential laws and regulations beforehand banks had stepped up the level of their offense to premeditated obstruction of justice and outright conspiracy to wire fraud. Citibank – Travelers “merger” and “Glass-Steagall shattering” alone had cost us the taxpayers $5-6 Trillions in real asset losses. Hedging, backroom betting, trading fraudulently rated derivatives, all to be eventually back-stopped by the Nation’s books, while remaining off their own is an affront to feducuary trust, a mockery of fiscal prudence and ethics.
WE THE PEOPLE will hold the banksters legally liable.

Goldman Sachs Puts ‘Possible’ Legal Losses at $3.4 Billion



Goldman Sachs Group Inc., the fifth- biggest U.S. bank by assets, said “reasonably possible” losses from legal claims against the company may amount to as much as $3.4 billion.

Goldman Sachs hasn’t set aside a “significant” amount of money against the possible losses, the New York-based bank said today in a 10-K filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. The estimate, the first of its kind disclosed by the firm, is the “upper end” of losses in matters where the risk is “more than remote but less than likely,” the firm said.

Comment: So? (a little dick cheney sarcasm)..... We fecking lost 14 trillion or so and we ain't too fecking happy about it either...

"The Big Short" by Michael Lewis is a great read. The information Mr. Lewis provides illustrates clearly the criminal nature manifest in the entire series of events. No document mortgages were bundled and given AAA ratings by Moody's, Standard and Poor and Fitch. These were 'NO DOCUMENT' Mortgages. Just as an example "In Bakersfield California, a Mexican strawberry picker with an income of $14,000 and no English was lent every penny he needed to buy a house for $724,000. "

Eagle Trades, whose sole member was Terrence Osberger, allegedly solicited $153,500 from at least three Massachusetts residents, Galvin alleged. Investors were promised returns ranging from 299% to 318%, according to court documents.

Shortly after receiving the funds, Osberger allegedly sent an email detailing how Eagle Trades had been the victim of international monetary fraud and was unable to satisfy redemptions.

Greenspans new paper...



COMPANY NEWS; Derivatives Get a Key Supporter



Strongly disagreeing with a new Congressional study, the chairman of the Federal Reserve Board, Alan Greenspan, said today there was "negligible" risk that the rapidly growing market for financial derivatives might someday require a taxpayer bailout.

then this shortly thereafter:

Greenspan and Cox Confess



By way of background, Greenspan was a one of the main supporters of derivatives since at least 1999 (and see this). He was one of the main cheerleaders for subprime loans. And of course, he pushed "easy credit" with low interest rates.

The SEC has advocated no government oversight and "voluntarily regulation" by the companies themselves.
