The Financial Crisis

For my second "News Magazine" I decided to take up the second most critical topic of the twenty first century, and that is the Financial Crisis. Obviously, I have covered this a lot on the GoldmanBanksters.com and WallStreet-Banksters.com websites, and the next menu over How WallStreet Works, but I will try to simplify the topic here.

MSNBC Dylan Ratigan Unemotionally Explaining the Financial Crisis

This video/newscast is where Dylan lost his composure on MSNBC and spilled most of the beans in a little under 4 minutes.  This video did go viral, but unfortunately didn't reach as many people as it should have.  I think it did reach the Occupy Movement young people and is a good starting point for the rest of us.

So Why Aren't We Adding BACK the Laws to Safeguard our Future

The Nomi Prins video is a great interview. Watch the whole interview, she talks about the corruption in banking, how nothing has changed in Washington, and how the Occupy movement IS helping to keep the attention on the GREED in the Financial Industry.

How Banks Work (or the History of Banking)

I have always liked these videos because Bill Still gives a straight forward explanation on how big banks have developed over the centuries. How the big banks have profited from wars and misery, and how big banks are not out for our best interests!

The National Debt

The National Debt is way out of control, but what is more worrisome is the Derivatives Bubble. The economist don't use Trillions of dollars anymore, but Quadrillion... 1.4 quadrillion to be exact.  But who's counting!


Derivatives are one of the most destructive instruments on Wall Street, and yet no-one has a handle on how many derivatives there are and what their value is.

I like the PBS Frontline video on Brooksley Born because it shows the extend the Financial Industry will go to prevent regulation. It is one of the best videos on the subject.

How (And Why) Banks Increased Total Outstanding Derivatives By A Record $107 Trillion In 6 Months

ZeroHedge | Tyler Durden | 11/26/11

While everyone was focused on the impending European collapse, the latest soon to be refuted rumors of a quick fix from theWelt am Sonntag notwithstanding, the Bank of International Settlements reported a number that quietly slipped through the cracks of the broader media. Which is paradoxical because it is the biggest ever reported in the financial world: the number in question is $707,568,901,000,000 and represents the latest total amount of all notional Over The Counter (read unregulated) outstanding derivatives reported by the world's financial institutions to the BIS for its semi-annual OTC derivatives report titled "OTC derivatives market activity in the first half of 2011."  Read more...

On September 11, 2001, 19 terrorists attacked the Unites States. They hijacked four airplanes in mid-flight. The terrorists flew two of the planes into two skyscrapers at the World Trade Center in New York City. The impact caused the buildings to catch fire and collapse. Another plane destroyed part of the Pentagon (the U.S. military headquarters) in Arlington, Virginia. The fourth plane crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Officials believe that the terrorists on that plane intended to destroy either the White House or the U.S. Capitol. Passengers on the plane fought the terrorists and prevented them from reaching their goal. In all, nearly 3,000 people were killed in the 9/11 attacks.
Wall Street and Banksters
Wall Street and Banksters

Wall Street is an eight-block-long street running roughly northwest to southeast from Broadway to South Street, at the East River, in the Financial District of Lower Manhattan in New York City. Over time, the term has become a metonym for the financial markets of the United States as a whole, the American financial services industry (even if financial firms are not physically located there), or New York-based financial interests.
The Untold History of the United States by Oliver Stone & Petere Kuznick

Oliver Stone and American University historian Peter J. Kuznick began working on the project in 2008. Stone, Kuznick and British screenwriter Matt Graham cowrote the script. It covers "the reasons behind the Cold War with the Soviet Union, U.S. President Harry Truman's decision to drop the atomic bomb on Japan, and changes in America's global role since the fall of Communism."

The Vietnam War

The Vietnam War

Ken Burns and Lynn Novick's ten-part, 18-hour documentary series, THE VIETNAM WAR, tells the epic story of one of the most consequential, divisive, and controversial events in American history as it has never before been told on film. Visceral and immersive, the series explores the human dimensions of the war through revelatory testimony of nearly 80 witnesses from all sides--Americans who fought in the war and others who opposed it, as well as combatants and civilians from North and South Vietnam. Ten years in the making, the series includes rarely seen and digitally re-mastered archival footage from sources around the globe, photographs taken by some of the most celebrated photojournalists of the 20th Century, historic television broadcasts, evocative home movies, and secret audio recordings from inside the Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon administrations.
China Valley of Tunnels

China Valley of Tunnels

A report written by a Georgetown University team led by Phillip Karber conducted a three-year study to map out China’s complex tunnel system, which stretches 5,000 km (3,000 miles). The report determined that the stated Chinese nuclear arsenal is understated and as many as 3,000 nuclear warheads may be stored in the underground tunnel network.
