It’s the last minute of this video that is most disturbing…a tear gas canister hit a protester and when comrades went to help him the cops threw in a “flash bang grenade“. Not good. The Mayor should immediately tender her resignation for condoning this kind of violence. Whether pro or con no American citizen should be harmed for simply expressing their first amendment rights peacefully.

Even if WikiLeaks reveals documents from inside a large American bank, as huge as that could be, it will most likely pale in comparison to what we just found out from the one-time peek we got into the inner-workings of the Federal Reserve. This is the Wall Street equivalent of the Pentagon Papers.
I’ve written many reports detailing the crimes of Wall Street during this crisis. The level of fraud, from top to bottom, has been staggering. The lack of accountability and the complete disregard for the rule of law have made me and many of my colleagues extremely cynical and jaded when it comes to new evidence to pile on top of the mountain that we have already gathered. But we must not let our cynicism cloud our vision on the details within this new information. [Read more…]
