Keiser The Klairvoyant To Light Up Big Screen In Bailout 2

Ready. Set. Fraud.  The rule of law is dead in Europe.


By John Titus, creator of Bailout

Bailout 2 Fund Drive Launched @ Pirate My Film

A significant part of pre-production for Bailout 2 has been researching potential talking heads to explain schemes and frauds that parasite bankers use to steal money from the rest of us (i.e., the productive economy) with a special focus on Europe, where Max Keiser will be cut loose on camera amid the financial ruination. (We know: it's an ambitious project.)

That effort has been aided in large part by John Lewell, a Keiser Report viewer who in August 2012 went through 300+ episodes (then) of the Keiser Report and compiled brief summaries of each, including the names of the guests. Thank you, John. Your fine work has spared us the time of wading through each episode serially on youtube.

Having been through roughly 20 episodes thus far, I’m struck by the many staggering revelations on the show that I'd somehow forgotten, only to be reminded of them later. For that the Keiser Report may be deemed a victim of its own prescience.

A case in point is the recent Senate Judiciary Committee hearing with U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder. Holder’s jaw-dropping admission that certain banks are too big to prosecute, quite aside from its grave legal and constitutional ramifications (which will draw a separate post soon), was actually foreshadowed on the Keiser Report, though I had no way of knowing it at the time.

In Episode 313, Max interviewed Ian Fraser, who set forth a brief history of criminal financial prosecutions in the UK. Two separate events discussed by Fraser starting at the 15:06 mark were essentially replicated in the U.S. shortly after Fraser discussed them in the Keiser Report:

The contact in the Serious Fraud Office said, “the message has come down from on high: there will never again be a prosecution of a high-level banker.”  So from that moment on, there was a kind of new agenda had been set, whereby bankers were given carte blanche to do as they wished.

And the situation got worse under Tony Blair and Gordon Brown when they passed an act which  included a clause which said that the competitiveness of the City was more important than the rule of law.  It said that regulators must consider the international mobility of financial businesses before taking enforcement action, and they must avoid damaging the UK’s competitiveness.

Briefly, the elevation of banks above the law in the UK occurred in two stages: first, the UK adopted a de facto stance of not prosecuting any financial crimes, however outrageous or damaging, and second codified this criminal insanity by statute in 2000.

That two-step process is a very close approximation of what happened in the U.S. shortly after Episode 313 aired in July 2012—albeit on much tighter schedule than the 8-year legal coup in the UK.

In September 2012, the head of criminal enforcement at the DOJ, Lanny Breuer, gave a speech to the New York City Bar Association stating that he would forego prosecution (though "not always") in response to “compelling” presentations made to him by defense counsel that explained all the supposedly nightmarish economic consequences that a TBTF prosecution would occasion.

Now, in March 2013, Eric Holder has essentially ratified Breuer’s shocking disclosure by flatly stating before the Senate Judiciary Committee—without any objection from members, mind you—that certain banks are too big to prosecute.

And with that, the formal repudiation of the Rule of Law in the U.S. was complete, ensuring that this once-great nation's fate will be most miserable. Among other horrifying realities is this one: the $20 trillion Americans believe themselves to have in store for their retirements is now resting in a branch of MF Global, ready to be plucked like low-hanging fruit to prop up Eric Holder's bankster bosses.

We look forward to unearthing other nuggets from the Keiser Report in the weeks ahead, particularly as we work backward in time.

Incidentally, with nearly 425 episodes of Max and Stacy’s show now online, each having about 15 minutes of interview time, the ground covered here is about 6000 minutes. At roughly 165 words per minute (the rate we experienced Bailout), that’s around 1,050,000 words, or 4200 book pages. Fully indexed, a small encyclopedia like that would make a rather potent research tool. Just in case any publishers are reading…

You don't reckon that the various royal houses will show up all decked out and fully stocked with out of work mercenaries and residual militaries to reestablish order amongst the starving peasants and prove their fitness to rule, do you?

The entire collection of the Keiser Report extant to date should be transcribed onto papyrus rolls and carefully stored inside jars in some cave so that one day many, many years from now people from the future will know of the Great Financial Prophet (and his loyal scribe Stacey) who parted the waters of FRAUD and walked across the Dead Sea Of Derivatives.

Look at it as an oppertunity. The EU has just unilaterally redefined what a nation state is. Nations are the public face of the banking industry. The government serves as a kiosk for the banking community, like a call center from India. Since the relationship between nations and the citizens has been delink end, we should pick our new country like we do our Internet providers. Pay a monthly income tax for services provided.

The Rule of Law is a great concept if it could be implemented by impartial persons in the same manner to all. As far as I know that hasn't been the case since and before the 'Wild West'. Whoever has the gun and shoots first wins. Sort of.

Besides, who made those laws? I tell you they were made by men with special interests with few exceptions. And today's 'laws' that are supposed to govern us cattle are not about justice. They are about control and have been for a long time.

Think about Natural Law and Justice and try to stay out of the firing line.
