“Bow your heads before Henry Paulson…”
The famous ‘Paulson threatened martial law’ speech from Brad Sherman.
Sherman exposes the Kanjorski-Paulson martial law, blood-in-the-streets fear mongering, which as we’ve demonstrated on multiple occasions was nothing more than highly granulated hyperbole meant to frighten a financially illiterate Congress and media corps into gentle acquiescence to the demands of their Sith Lords.

The Goldman Sachs coup that failed in America has nearly succeeded in Europe—a permanent, irrevocable, unchallengeable bailout for the banks underwritten by the taxpayers.
In September 2008, Henry Paulson, former CEO of Goldman Sachs, managed to extort a $700 billion bank bailout from Congress. But to pull it off, he had to fall on his knees and threaten the collapse of the [...]
Governor Romney, it’s 2013, and the European debt crisis has worsened. Countries are defaulting. Europe’s largest banks are on the verge of bankruptcy. Contagion has spread to the U.S. And the global financial system is on the brink.
What would you do differently than what President Bush, Henry Paulson, and Ben Bernanke did in 2008?
ROMNEY: Well, you’re talking about a scenario that’s obviously very difficult to imagine. And –
GOLDMAN: But it’s [...]
What he did: Paulson Gave Hedge Funds Advance Word on Freddie and Fannie in July 2008
What he said: On August 10, 2008, Secretary Paulson told NBC’s Meet the Press that he had no plans to inject any capital into Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac. On September 7, 2008, both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac went into conservatorship.

We now have concrete evidence that Wall Street and Washington are running a secret government far removed from the democratic process. Through a freedom of information request by Bloomberg News, the public now has access to over 29,000 pages of Fed documents and 21,000 additional Fed transactions that were deliberately hidden, and for good reason. (See here and [...]
Hank Paulson knows the system is rigged (photo viw Wikipedia)
When former Goldman Sachs exec Henry Paulson was Treasury Secretary he apparently gave his hedge fund buddies extremely helpful and lucrative secret information about his plans to seize Freddie Mae and Fannie Mac while still assuring the public everything was fine. To a room full of hedge fund mangers, including many of his former colleagues, Paulson let it be known the [...]
Almost no one on the planet has grasped what has occurred here.
Most central banks are answerable to no one. The U.S. Federal Reserve, for instance, is a private bank. It is owned by shareholders. Yes, the President appoints the Chairman, and the Chairman must testify before Congress, but no one gives them orders or tells them what to do. Again, they are a private, not government, institution…
And it is the [...]
Washington’s self-imposed deadline to do something credible on the debt crisis before the Asian financial markets opened on Sunday passed in silence. “There could be extreme turmoil in markets,” says one expert.
President Obama met with House Speaker John Boehner and Senate majority leader Harry Reid Saturday in a last attempt to work out a deal on the debt ceiling crisis. [...]

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) — Former Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson called for the debt ceiling to be raised and for spending cuts after meeting with Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner. “Now is the time for action on both raising the debt ceiling and tackling the U.S. debt and deficits through significant and lasting spending reduction, entitlement reform and tax reform,” Paulson said in a statement. Failing to raise the debt ceiling [...]
Whether the rumors of Timothy Geithner’s resignation are true or not, I wouldn’t blame him for abandoning his post. After all, he has witnessed – and contributed to – a larger increase in national debt than any other Treasury Secretary in U.S. history.
The national debt increased $3.7 trillion from Jan. 26, 2009 to June 30, 2011, according to the Treasury Department’s Bureau of the Public [...]
(CNSNews.com) – Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner oversaw the largest increase in the national debt of any Treasury secretary in American history, presiding over a $3.7 trillion increase in the debt.
According to data from the Treasury Department’s Bureau of the Public Debt, the national debt has increased $3,723,575,990,130.10 from Jan. 26, 2009 until June 30, 2011, Geithner’s entire tenure to date as Treasury secretary.
When Geithner took office [...]
JP Morgan Chase &Co has a pretty slick mouth piece telling anybody that will listen a lot of things that basically is a ploy to keep his traitorous ass out of prison. The former class A director of the New York Federal Reserve is a circus barker for the corrupt that helped bring American down. His predecessor Henry Paulson is a close second. What this clown wants to do should make the hairs [...]
Many people have lost their homes. Many more are paying inflated rates on inflated properties which the banks refuse to refinance. Savers are getting lousy rates on CDs, but are charged 10%-24% on a credit card. From the top of the credit menuboard to the bottom, The Banksters have FREE REIN to suck as much blood out of the middle class as they possibly can. [...]
Fiat currency, it reminds me of a contract thats won by the lowest bidder! Completely useless as a store of value when it can be printed out of thin air by a small elite! In turn, because it is constantly depreciating, it is nearly worthless as a ‘unit of account’ as well, because what does $100,000 revenue (for e.g.) over a year mean if the [...]
Everything Obama, Geithner, & Bernanke do, they do for The Banksters.

The sordid details begin when all hope was lost with the election of Barack H. Obama. The 2008 Presidential election failed to yield a candidate with the knowledge and will to fix the severe transgressions of the USA and our monetary system.

“Speculators Want U.S. CDS Payoffs in Gold
Remember AIG? When prices moved against AIG on its credit default swap contracts, AIG owed cash (collateral) to its trading partners. AIG paid billions of dollars and owed billions more when U.S. taxpayers bailed it out in September 2008.
U.S. credit default swaps currently trade in euros. After all, if the U.S. defaults, [...]
