MUST SEE VIDEO - Dylan Ratigan Is Mad As Hell

     Email to a Friend

The screaming and truth begin immediately.

Ratigan is back.




We’ve got a real problem…this is a mathematical fact. Tens of trillions of dollars are being extracted from the United States of America. Democrats aren’t doing it, republicans aren’t doing it, an entire integrated system, bankingtrade and taxation, created by both parties over a period of two decades is at work on our entire country right now.

Dylan: What are you talking about $4 trillion?

Karen: $4 trillion, I’m saying…

Dylan: We owe $70 trillion. [cross-talking 04:29] a $4 trillion solution, which is basically just a way for the Democrats to avoid dealing with this until 2017. I’m not here to talk about plans to deal with this till 2017. I’m saying we’ve got a real problem, and I’m tired of Republicans and Democrats who either want – Republicans who want to burn the place to the ground and Democrats, with all due respect, who want to offer a plan that gets it through the end of their second term of their presidency, and then screws me and my kids when it’s over! And until we do that, we have to deal with the extraction that is at foot, it is the reason the financial markets are behaving the way they’re behaving, it is a mathematical fact! This is not some opinion; this is a mathematical fact. Tens of trillions of dollars are being extracted from the United States of America. Democrats aren’t doing it, Republicans are not doing it, an entire integrated system, financial system, trading system, taxing system, that was created by both parties over a period of two decades is at work on our entire country right now. And we’re sitting here arguing about whether we should do the $4 trillion plan that kicks the can down the road for the President for 2017, or burn the place to the ground, both of which are reckless, irresponsible, and stupid. And the fact of the matter is until we actually, and I’m sorry to lose my temper, but I tell you what, I’ve been coming on TV for three years doing this, and the fact of the matter is that there’s a refusal on both the Democratic and the Republican side of the aisle to acknowledge the mathematical problem, which is that the United States of America is being extracted. It’s being extracted through banking, it’s being extracted through trade, and it’s being extracted through taxation, and there’s not a single politician that has stepped forward, Susan, to deal with this.

Susan: Yeah, but there’s only one right now, the leader of the free world, whether you like it or not, the President of the United States is arguably one of the most powerful individuals we have out there, and he’s our President.

Karen: But, Susan, what you’re saying is exactly the point that Dylan is making. It’s not about one guy; it’s about all of them.

Susan: No, I actually disagree. I think Dylan – it is about one guy.

Dylan: I agree with her. It is about one guy.

Karen: What would you like him to do? What do you want him to do?

Dylan: I would like him to go to the people of the United States of America and say, “People of the United States of America, your Congress is bought, your Congress is incapable of making legislation on healthcare, banking, trade, or taxes because if they do it, they will lose their political funding and they won’t do it. But I’m the President of the United States, and I won’t have a country that is run by a bought Congress. So I’m not going to work with a bought Congress and try to be Mr. Big Guy, ‘I’m working with a bought Congress’, I’m going to abandon the bought Congress like Teddy Roosevelt did, and I’m going to go to the people of the United States and I’m going to say, ‘You’ve got a bought Congress,” and until we get rid of the bought Congress, which is Jimmy Williams constant point, which is get the money out of politics, and until a President says that’s the problem and says he’s going to fix it, there is no policy that I can possibly see no matter how brilliant your idea may be or your idea or my idea or her idea or your idea at home, is that idea will not happen as long as there’s a capacity to basically fire a politician who disagrees with me by taking funding away from him. Is that a fair assessment?

Jimmy: Money in politics is the root of all political evil. It is corruption at its worst. And until we step up and kick that out of the park, it’s going to be the same system all the way.

Dylan: And only the President can do that. 

Jimmy: No, no, no, Congress has to do it, too. Congress has to do it, too.

Dylan: But I’ll tell you what, how bad does it have to get? How much money has to be extracted? How many things have to be heard?

Karen: [cross-talking 07:59] tax. Okay, physically, what do you do? 

Dylan: You go and give a speech to…

Karen: Right now.

Dylan: Yeah, right now. You say…

Karen: And then what happens tomorrow?

Dylan: Tomorrow, what happens is you begin the process of actually investing in solving the problems, so I come out and I say, “How?” I create an infrastructure bank with 2% blending immediately. There’s – once I explain to people the problem, once I explain to you that you have cancer, once you understand how screwed up your trade, tax, and banking policies are, believe me, you will have no issue when I incorporate an infrastructure bank that I fund with repatriated offshore money that I bring in and then use to create 2% direct lending to every business in America because when you realize that the banking system is fully corrupt and defrauding us, and I come out and say that, which is what I want my President to do, then at that exact moment I say, “You know what, we’ve got a screwed up situation here, people. You all know it, and now I’m going to admit it.” And as a result, not only have I admitted it, but we’re going to begin the process of solving it like grown ups. They did in World War II, they did it after the Civil War, they did it in Latin America with the Brady Bond; we are not seeing it happen now. 

The panel stays a little more emotional than I anticipated getting at work this afternoon, but what am I going to do?

Respectfully disagree re Ratigan. He pistol-whips the Fed all the time, just not here. He was calling Obama out here, and the panelists shrank in fear. Ratigan passes the litmus test: should Wall Street execs be prosecuted and jailed? His answer is yes. Who else in MSM talks like this?


Agreed. The Fed's out of magic tricks and games (lowering rates, jawboning), so is Congress (mark to market already suspended).

Gold knows this. As LeCarre put it through Col. Smithers in Goldfinger: it is the talisman of fear.

I actually interviewed the guy, who ultimately works for GE, and asked how he avoids the ax what with eruptions like this one. He was genuinely perplexed.

He's a very smart guy, and incredibly intense. He's also a hoss. I'd put him at 6'3" 235 lbs. Maybe that's it.
Aug 10, 2011 at 8:51 PM | Unregistered CommenterCheyenne
I guess I see this video in a different light. I see an intelligent reporter who exemplifies all the fine qualities, integrity, balance and thought for his viewers. At no time does he take a stance to defend any banking institution that I hear in this interview. Again this interview. He points out the very truth of a the duties and abilities of an elected President's position. On that note one could argue he offers a chance if not an opportunity IN FAVOR NO LEASS of the President to take his American voted RIGHT OF OPPORTUNITY to SPEAK OUT instead of CANCELING a MUCH NEEDED AND WANTED TALK. A talk perhaps that may have put him in a better light though not likely.

Dylan Ratigan has shown that he when challenged, as we all get once in a while, stands professional and maintains the ability to get his point across. Or not????!!!???

The President has become his own worst friend if not enemy by not taking a stronger position now than prior to last Aug 2. Thats what I hear out of him as well as the frustration of people bean picking if you will with the thinking that they have the answer. Better yet or proof that his anger is unjustified. R U K I D D I N G ME????? The passion poured out by the many Reporters, Politicians and World Problem Solving Savants with nothing more than an opinion is because we have to cut to the case. Economists are dumfounded and Rain man retired so that said my vote AGAIN goes to Dylan Ratigan for saying exactly what people like myself who have at least admit they have no idea what the hell is going on wants to know?

I think the video is great. All points on the panel were fine though redundant and useless for just that reason. Dylan's point was out frustration because of the lack of response, the need for forward thinking is now since we are in a serious problem far worse since the president took office. Back rooms deals are just one of them. I think that would have been a topic he would have stopped to listen to along with several others that are so obvious now.

We need leadership by our current President while his is still in office don't we? Or should Dylan have another panel that goes over the same ole same ole that has gotten us this far back? Like I said I'm just asking.

Thanks DB I loved the video unfortunately for Dylan he need a better Super Panel.

If Obama came out with such a speech, he would soon find himself in a very small underground room at Arlington Cemetery, just like JFK (and almost Reagan).

The difference is that Obama would never even want to make such a speech in the first place.
Aug 11, 2011 at 7:40 AM | Unregistered CommenterJason Calley
Here is the ONLY thing the president can do that WILL end the mess. Everything else is just complaining about the nature of politicians and their constituency, oir the nature of bankers and sheople - human nature--which you cannot and will not ever change. So ... here is the plan that Obama could fix everything with, one man, fearless and resolute:

After some opening remarks, Obama announces that he has instructed Treasury to audit the nations gold and then act as market maker to determine the US$ price required to balance the US Government balance sheet, and thereafter to maintain a FREE MARKET in gold. He goes on to say that all taxes and any remaining restrictions on gold ownership will be removed to ensure the efficiency of this important new balancing mechanism.

Obama explains that through this process, Congress will get a clean balance sheet and the American people will have an independent benchmark on the value of the US dollar every day. In effect, he will have hit the reset button and given the USA a fresh start.

From here he returns to his opening remarks about debit cards versus credit cards. He explains that for the last 40 years America has been maxing out one credit card after another, building the most powerful nation the planet has ever seen… on credit. But now that credit card will have competition from the new US debit card (national gold reserves). We’ll let our debit card compete with our credit card. If the world wants our gold more than our debt, they will pay the price that balances our books.

And as they bid up the price of gold, the balance in our debit account will grow (as with the eurosystem today) rather than shrink, because it is funded with a financial asset (as Ben Bernanke called it), a secondary medium of exchange (as Mises called it) that from here on out will be accounted for in VALUE not VOLUME. We still have more gold than any other single nation in the world, he’ll remind the audience (we hope). And if they want it, they’ll pay the price that balances our trade with the outside world.

At some price the gold will reverse our international trade deficit, and then our debt will become the better bargain. You can forget credit ratings. We’ll have competition between our debt and our equity, our credit card (dollars) and our debit card (gold). Global trade will finally balance in physical goods and services because the price and flow of physical gold will make it so. The simplest answer ever. One for the history books.

And he can either be the author of this plan, or a bystander. Because I assure, THIS IS the plan that Bank for International Settlements is setting up for, more out of necessity than by plan. The central banks are now accumulating gold reserves to prepare for the final debt convertibility that must eventually come, and when total physical supply and market price converge to allow for total global debt convertibility, this is what will happen.

How, Why? Because by that time, the world will be engulfed in such conflict that this settlement will be the only one that can stop world war three. The BIS and the central banking system intend to survive, and that plan is their hedge.
Aug 11, 2011 at 1:00 PM | Unregistered CommenterWil Martindale
Great idea Wil, but now that I've finally realized how truly corrupt our government is and has been for at least 30 years or better, I would bet a lot of money the only gold actually owned by the United States is fools gold. The elite's took over owner ship and they ain't giving it back.
Even if that is not the case, Obama fearless and resolute? More like duck and run at the first opportunity.
Aug 11, 2011 at 1:55 PM | Unregistered CommenterSagebrush

Steve Forbes has been saying for a couple of years that he feels the dollar will be re linked to Gold... Interesting hypothesis.
Aug 11, 2011 at 2:28 PM | Unregistered CommenterS. Gompers
Like I have said guys, it's all about the real audits of the real gold. I have NO IDEA who is really holding what, through the lies and decpetion coming through the idiot box and the establishment sheople-web (which letthemfail and dailybail are NOT a part of).

What I DO know is:
"The only ammunition which the producer/saver class has against the Federal Reserve Gatling guns of paper debt, is gold. Remember, the greatest enabler of social injustice in the world is the paper money which politicians poison. Politicians cannot poison gold – this is why they hate it, and manipulate it.

This is why the working class SHOULD LOVE IT. Because when you convert the paper you earn for the hard work you perform into gold, the politicians can no longer poison the product of your labor. And the more paper dollars which you convert into inflation proof GOLD, the more YOU tax the poison paper system, instead of the poison paper system taxing YOU. Simple as that."

1st of all, Corporate America was brought on by Raegan, one of the worst presidents of all time, other than bush of course.
JFK was assassinated because he was to abolish the FED, he signed the executive order to have money taken out of private hands, aka the Fed, and allow only the govt to be able to print money, next day he was shot... hmm.. truth hurts doesn't it? If you try to go by the constitution on which this country was founded you will not live long.
Simple, the real owners of this country rule us all, they own us, they make the laws and they control all aspect of our lives. The real owners are not our politicians, or even the president, and def it is not us, politicians are put in place to give us an illusion that we have the freedom of choice, guess what, WE DON'T!!!
It's business as usual in the good old United Corporate America... what a great place... soon it will be Earth, Inc. with one currency one form of govt to enslave all...
I heard Mars was nice this time of year, maybe its time to leave this ball of shit and be free of all this corruption, greed, control and just plain stupidity...

Today is the first one Ratigan's show won't be on TV, rendering it almost totally useless. The TV, not the day.

What he did on that show for an entire hour--live--on that show, 5 days a week, was just incredible.

Thanks in no small part to this blog, I lucked onto his show in May, and the first thing I noticed was how intense Ratigan was during the commercial breaks, just sitting there flipping through a few 8 1/2 by 11 typed sheets. Everyone in that studio--including otherwise clueless guests--knew better than to interrupt him.

Jun 25, 2012 at 8:25 PM | Unregistered CommenterSagebrush

I still haven't watched your interview with Ratigan. After I see it I'll post it. This is the first time I have visited these boards since I disappeared. Everything is ok with me. I just had to get away I guess. I say 'I guess' because I never planned to drop out of sight.

I thought I needed a few days off in Feb. and that I would be back the following week, so I didn't think there was any reason to put up a post explaining my absence. But I began to realize pretty quickly that I no longer enjoyed spending 12 or 13 hours every day sitting in this chair and being high on stress hormones.

So a week turned into a few weeks and I stopped checking my email account, stopped carrying my phone, cut down my daily internet news heroin habit to 2 hours per day, and spent the really warm February outside playing golf and gardening.

I was prepared to come back at the beginning of March, and then Andrew Breitbart died.

He was younger than I am by 3 years, in much worse shape physically, but we lived the same stressful life - Andrew Sullivan got it right in this comment on Breitbart's death:



In the new 24/7 mediaverse, in a brutal, unending culture war, with the web unleashed and news and opinion flashing every few seconds, you can very easily lose yourself, and forget how and why you got here in the first place. There have been times writing and editing this blog on that kind of insane schedule for more than a decade when I have wondered who this new frantic way of life would kill first. I do not doubt that Andrew tried to keep a balance, and stay healthy, but like the rest of us, became consumed with and overwhelmed by this twittering, unending bloghorreic chatter. It takes a much bigger physical, emotional and spiritual toll than most realize, and I've spent some time over the years worrying it could destroy me. Here I am, after all, at 9.30 pm, still blogging, having just filed another column, and checking the traffic stats, and glancing feverishly at every new item at Memeorandum.

Human beings were not created for that kind of constant unending stress, and the one thing you can say about Andrew is that he had fewer boundaries than others. He took it all so seriously, almost manically, in the end. The fight was everything. He felt. His anger was not feigned. He wanted to bleed and show the world the wounds. He wanted to scream. And he often did. And when you are on that much, and angry to that extent, and absorbed with that kind of constant mania, and obviously needing more and more validation, and on the online and real stage all the time, day and night, weekends and weekdays ... well, it's a frightening and dangerous way to live in the end.

He is in that sense our first new-media culture-war fatality. I fear he won't be the last.


So, that killed March as my 'restart the site' month as I decided to NOT be the next dead blogger.

Jun 25, 2012 at 8:54 PM | Registered CommenterDailyBail
I have to admit that I was also growing extremely frustrated with the outlook for truth and justice. Corzine's escape made me sick. I was losing hope. The choice between Obama and Romney is no choice. Look at this nonsense just from today:


So I gave up the fight for awhile. And waited for the anger to burn again. At least enough to get me back here. And this time with some new ideas. We need to bring down Corzine in the short term. And in the long term we need a larger platform (wider audience). Much wider. Something like what Drudge pulls in every day. 10-15 million daily readers. Not for the Daily Bail. For something else.

I know how to get there. That's why I'm back.
Jun 25, 2012 at 9:28 PM | Registered CommenterDailyBail
I can relate, DB. The film was pretty much killing me and may do me in yet.

I've gotten better about reaching out to people and asking for help. Free-floating anxiety is an inherent part of going something major alone. Sometimes just shooting the breeze with someone for a few minutes can turn my day around. But that Breitbart piece is absolutely right about the hours: at 46, I'm too old for those ass-kickings.

So you do what you gotta do. Hopefully time away cleared your mind. Sounds like it.

I have missed this site like hell, thoughj.

Sorry, but I can't help myself and it's important. Factoid which must never be overlooked with respect to A. Breitbart: that guy was a racist piece of shit.

Personally I think years of cocaine up the nose was a major contributing factor in that racist piece of shit's demise, but that's merely speculation. Also, too, A. Sullivan is a pretentious wanker, but that doesn't really come into play here.) Apologies for the digression.

Establish the bank as an independent government-owned corporation (GOC) outside of any governmental agency. This would endow the NIB with greater budgetary flexibility and not unnecessarily narrow the scope of infrastructure projects it could support


The bank would be managed by an independent seven-member board, with no more than four members from either party.

they belong in jail too nonetheless.

Ratigan was going on there like Obama isn't part of the problem. Has the screaming affected his gray matter?

QE is just a stealth version of confiscating deposits.

The core of our problem is ignorance.

After the Rat's initial rant, the mouthy female panelist blurbs:

"The President is the Leader of the Free World."

Asked a neighbor while walking our dogs around the bayous if he thought the US President was the leader of the free world and he responded:

"I don't know about that, but he's our leader"

The president is not the leader of the free world. The president is not the leader of the citizens of the united states.

The president is a civil servant that we the people hire, under contract, to oversee the operational costs of the "commons" funded by our stipends. The terms are specific and signed in blood. The president is an employee of "WE" the people,and is limited through our assignments and authorizations, to a leader ship role is of "OUR" employees in "OUR" civil and uniformed services. "WE THE PEOPLE" are the leaders. The only other authorization "WE" have granted the president is as a "financial" function. He can sign, or choose not to sign, requests for authorizations for expenditures from "OUR" employees in congress (not our leaders in congress) , or purchase orders", that are paid from "OUR" accounts.

We the people are not "consumers". We are producers. Government is a consumer. Banks are glorified drop boxes and consumers. Neither banks nor those in "OUR" employee in government, produce goods and / or services(value) that can be converted to capital (exchange units).

As soon as every media intended iBling Brain Drained Trance wakes up and accepts this f*cking fact, the world will change.

We need congress to write an emergency bill directing non political employees of the people of the united states to elect temporary leadership roles to assume any functions assigned to political functions.

The emergency would require political functions to notify our international counter parties, with assurances, that new business would be handled by a provisional civil authority until such time the constitutional republic is restored.

Provisional uniformed leadership will initiate a "stand down" all foreign / forward operation bases and secure repatriate US nuclear, chemical and biological weapons for disposal at secure facilities. All US based nuclear and WMD assets will stand down and be disarmed. Uniformed service personnel not needed to secure or destroy forward based US ordinance, will return to the US to assit the provisional authorities. Returning personal would replace private contractor roles in base, prison and agency. All dual citizens, working in government, would have their employment suspended.

THe bill would instruct the provisional leadership to assure and protect all documents and data that could be used in prosecution or, to defend, those subject to house arrest.

The bill would also require all elected and appointed political employees of the republic to resign, surrender passports, licenses and financial authorities to the provisional leadership and submit to house arrest as wards of the provisional authority. This would apply to all "branches" of government, including the supreme court. Executives and senior management of Investment banks and defense companies who do business with the FED or have been fined in lieu of criminal charges will similarly surrender and submit to house arrest.

Those subject to house arrest may benefit in the case they can provide evidence and testimony to the provisional authorities, that would expedite cases to be filed for treason, corruption or malfeasance for judicial finding aat such time the constitutional republic is restored.

All US foreign US defense facilities, like the F15 plant in Turkey, would be dismantled and all technical specs and patents, belonging to the people of the united states, would be returned and secured by the provisional authority

FED operations will be suspended and all FED assets seized. Unregistered derivative transactions would be declared void. Foreign aid would be suspended. The military leadership would, under authority of the civilian provisional leadership, would make a determination as to the cost of repatriating any remaining forward based

All executive orders will be rescinded. Laws, determined by the provisional authorities to be harmful to republic or were shown to be the work product of lobbyists, rather than congress will be rescinded. Great care would be given to assure the food supply is safe.

No more death penalty. THe provisional authority would need to make a determination regarding the release of prisoners charged with so called victimless crimes.

The emergency bill would be crafted, as the last act of the current government, in coordination with the provisional leadership determined by a plurality of our rank and file employees. Shouldn't take more than a month to put it together. The president, as his last official act, would sign the bill and submit to it's conditions and terms. Discretion and assurances to nations the republic does businesses with, like food, energy, etc would need to be a consideration. The house cleaning,

If a provisional authority cannot be achieved, The range of options progressively degrades into less, more chaotic, civil methods - like a bloodless coup by rank and file civil and uniformed employees of the people of the united states, next a bloody "insider" coup, And final a take back with extreme prejudice that may or may not include imagery like politicos and bankers slow dying from a slit throat and the last thing they see and hear is their friends and family screaming for the mercy of the gates of hell as some got-nothing-to-loose american rebel army bad-ass mushes little Angie's head to mincemeat.

Just saying - the current reality will not stand - how and at what cost a sustainable reality is delivered is up to us.

I know sometimes people get depress when I talked about these things.
However, for one I am a Democrat and believe in Democracy. But there is
a time, we need to stand up as a Patriotic and believe in justice and real
Democracy in this country. I know you are first an American, then a Democrat or a Republican.
We had been believing the Government so long because we had trust them.
We elected the government officials for one reason and one reason only, to represent
us and look out for our best interest. This is the soul of Democracy. However, we had
been experienced for many years the corruption in this country. There is not secret that
anyone can ignore this catastrophic economy. Everyone knows that the banks are ruling
in this country. We had bailed out the banks for their wrong doing for more than 700 Billion
Dollars. This is what the government told us and we as the sheepless believe them. The real
truth is that the government gave the banks all over the world more than 17 Trillion Dollars.
There is so much going on that millions of people don't know or have a clue of what really
is going on in politics and all the corruption in the U.S.A. not only the banks, but big oil companies,
big Pharma, and many that the list is so long, I would not be able to fit in this message.
If you have an open mind and can take a little bit more of this by listening to an expert in the field.
I had been listening to Dylan Ratigan for years. Believe me if I don't know what I am talking about,
this guy really knows his staff. At the end of the day, you and I and any American will have to deal
with this sooner or later. God Bless us and God Bless Mr. Dylan Ratigan. Amen.
