Kyle Bass, Hayman Capital Hedge Fund Manager, is best known in the finance world for predicting the 2008 housing market meltdown. Few listened then, but took his careful study of markets more seriously after the housing market imploded. Btw, he made millions. [Read more…]

When surfing the web these last couple of days this post over at Washington’s Blog caught my attention “If the “Occupy” Movement and Tea Party Join Together, We Can End the Malignant Partnership Between Big Government and Big Corporations Which Is Destroying America”
The piece argues that the two movements – the Tea Party and #Occupy Wall Street – find common ground and come together to END Big Government, Too Big To Fail Banks, Corporate Ownership of Washington politico’s, the Fed and Crony Capitalism.
Well, I daresay, if the #OWS movement focused its resources on these key monetary issues ONLY then the likelihood of the REAL Tea Party grassroots movement joining the effort would be greater.
Why? Because all of the other noise emanating out of #Occupy Wall Street like healthcare for all, living wages or the environment only serves to distract folks attention away from the core of America’s challenges, which is how our monetary system is managed behind closed doors with little to no oversight by the monstrously “capped at the knee” federal regulatory system.

Editor’s Note: Back in 2009, we watched the organic movement of the Tea Party infiltrated and taken over by FreedomWorks, the Koch Brothers and Fox. Today, the public associates the Tea Party efforts to the Republican Party even though the majority of self-identified Tea Partiers consider themselves to be Independents. The take over succeeded in diluting and re channeling these patriots momentum, not b/c they were right or wrong, BUT b/c many of the early supporters no longer wished to give any kind of support to either national party. As an electorate, we’ve grown beyond tired of having to choose b/w two losers, but that is how the establishment works and is a chief reason why a new movement will be born out of “Occupy America”. As we learned from the Republican hijacking of the Tea Party movement, anything that dares to threaten the establishments agenda will be ridiculed, taken over, crushed or simply ignored. Today, it looks like the D’s are swooping in to try and hijack “Occupy America’s” momentum and to refocus the energy to support Obama’s re election campaign agenda. Here’s to hoping they fail, and fail miserably! It’s past time for the people, only the people, to rise up and say enough to the political and financial establishment who are plunging not only America but the world into ruin! To the people of “Occupy America” don’t allow yourselves to be played, because the people of the world have been waiting a long time for American’s to take back our country from the greedy hands of the establishment. They, we, need you to succeed.

Wall Street and London hedge fund tycoon George Soros sent a signal to his minions and infiltrators when he stated that he sympathized with the Occupy Wall Street movement. Soros’s statement dovetailed with David Plouffe, President Obama’s Senior Adviser, making contact with certain newly-minted “leaders” of the “Occupy” movement across the United States to ensure that they are as politically-manipulated by the White House as a vast majority of “Tea Party” members have been manipulated by senior Republican Party officials and the billionaire Koch Brothers.

How Soros and his friends are forestalling popular uprisings by controlling them
From sources inside the non-governmental organization (NGO) community, WMR has been informed that George Soros’s “themed revolution” operations are now on the streets in America. Hoping to steer and influence popular outrage over President Obama’s and the GOP’s bailout of Wall Street billionaires and the steady whittling away of government services, including Social Security, Medicare, and the Postal Service, the Soros-funded “democracy” operations are working hand-in-glove with the CIA-influenced National Endowment for Democracy (NED) and its Republican and Democratic subsidiaries, as well as Democratic Party political operatives. Also funding the “democracy” operations is the CIA-funded U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). [Read more…]

Democracy Now! with Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzales conducted this interview w/author Nicholas Shaxson, Treasure Islands: Uncovering the Damage of Offshore Banking and Tax Havens, prior to tax day here in Uncle Sam’s US of A. Shaxson talks in detail about this hidden financial system stashing away trillions of trillions of corporate and personal wealth purposely evading their share of taxes. Great interview and very enlightening while explaining why the people of the world are carrying the load for basic services while that “rich” guy, well, just laughs all the way to the bank.
“An absolute gem that deserves to be read by anyone interested in the way contemporary globalization is undermining social justice. Give it to your sons, daughters, families, favorite legislators and anyone else needing stimulation of their thought buds. This masterpiece illuminates the dark places and shows the visible hand of governments, corporations, banks, accountants, lawyers and other pirates in creating fictitious offshore transactions and structures and picking our pockets. This financial engineering has enabled companies and the wealthy elites to dodge taxes. The result is poverty, erosion of social infrastructure and hard won welfare rights and higher taxes for ordinary people. Tax will be the decisive battleground of the twenty-first century as no democracy can function without it, or provide people with adequate educations, healthcare, security, housing, transport or pensions. Nicholas Shaxson has done a wonderful job in lifting the lid off the inbuilt corruption that has become so naturalized in the western world.”–Prem Sikka, Professor of Accounting, University of Essex, UK
