"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their money, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them, will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered." ~Thomas Jefferson

"We didn't truly know the dangers of the market, because it was a dark market," says Brooksley Born, the head of an obscure federal regulatory agency -- the Commodity Futures Trading Commission [CFTC] -- who not only warned of the potential for economic meltdown in the late 1990s, but also tried to convince the country's key economic powerbrokers to take actions that could have helped avert the crisis. "They were totally opposed to it," Born says. "That puzzled me. What was it that was in this market that had to be hidden?"

From Academy Award nominated filmmaker, Charles Ferguson (No End In Sight), comes INSIDE JOB, the first film to expose the shocking truth behind the economic crisis of 2008. The global financial meltdown, at a cost of over $20 trillion, resulted in millions of people losing their homes and jobs. Through extensive research and interviews with major financial insiders, politicians and journalists, INSIDE JOB traces the rise of a rogue industry and unveils the corrosive relationships which have corrupted politics, regulation and academia.
Narrated by Academy Award winner Matt Damon, INSIDE JOB was made on location in the United States, Iceland, England, France, Singapore, and China.

Teri Buhl : Bear Stearns Fraud: Keiser Report
Excerpt from the article:
How awesome is this treasure trove of emails, documents, files et. al placed online by the NY Fed?
Some of the emails between Lehman execs are laughable — naive, silly, hubristic, childish.
But my favorite piece simply has to be the Morgan Stanley research report from June 30 2008 “Overweight Rating” on Lehman Brothers — “Bruised, Not Broken, Poised for Profitability“. 60 days later, Lehman Brothers filed what was thent he largest bankruptcy in the United States. This is (literally) what the category “Really Really Bad Call” was invented for.

We The People vs. The Federal Reserve
A Look at how Central Banks are Steering our Society off an Economic Cliff with Lew Rockwell as guest
With Italian and Spanish bond yields back on the rise, we've recently seen the Dutch government collapse under the weight of austerity talks and French president Nicolas Sarkozy defeated after the first-round of elections. As price discovery is guarded against in the financial markets, are we seeing its emergence reflected in the delicacy of eurozone governments as discontent is being "priced into" the democratic process?
Central banks may not be waiting to find out if major currencies -- the euro or the US dollar -- will collapse or be devalued. They are stocking up on gold. IMF data shows Mexico added close to 17 tons of gold to its reserves in March. Turkey, Russia and Kazakhstan are buying gore too. We speak with GoldMoney founder James Turk about why he thinks central banks could be guarding themselves from the confetti cannon currency being shot around the globe.
James Turk gives his timeline on the Dollar's Collapse and Gold's role as the messenger!
OK, 3rd World America. The Truth is out there!The Federal Reserve came out with its interest rate decision today. They voted to keep rates at essentially zero, and hinted that they expect them to stay there until at least late 2014. Before we get into what this decision means with our guest English Bob, contributing editor for Zero Hedge, let's start with a little story.
Once upon a time, there were these things called "prices." The market (I.e. You, me and Joe six-pack down the street) determined them with every single transaction we made. Although we still use prices in our everyday lives in order to make decisions, these prices are no longer freely determined by the market. They are distorted, and the source of that distortion rests at the FOMC.

OK, 3rd World America. Signs, signs, signs are everywhere... #BiggerPictureThe Death of U.S. Dollar is coming... inevitably. #TwinPartyDictatorship Who can control the value of Gold in the Stock Market? Is Austerity contagious? That's the ONLY option in their EVIL minds... THERE IS NO LEFT OR RIGHT PARADIGM! THERE IS ONLY TYRANNY OR LIBERTY! #HumanRoBOT #HumanMindNOTPartyMind China and Japan are scheduled to start trading in their own currencies Friday. The Japanese Finance Minister came out with this news. This allows traders to trade in Yuan and Yen without first converting them into Dollars. So, we'll talk about what this means for the US dollar: the global reserve currency. Are we headed towars a world where no single currency reigns supreme -- an end to what French President Charles De Gualle famously recognized as America's "exorbitant privilege?" And more trouble in Europe as Spain's borrowing costs over Germany's rise to the highest level since the start of the Euro according to the Financial Times. The rescue of Bankia is reportedly what has investors wary, with concern about the terms of the 19 billion Euro bailout. This is jus one in a string of events we've seen over the last several months that you might think would have investors running to safe havens like gold. So why has gold been on a downward trajectory since last August then -- almost one year? Is it not a safe haven after all? John Butler, author and veteran of global finance, is here to tell us why that's not the case. John Butler on the Dollar Liability and Gold's role as the Insurance NOTE: Lauren mentioned the OWS: The STATUS QUO is a GREAT tool to dupe people and some of the Occupy Wall Street activists have been doing that for their own self-interest.
