Occupy……

OCCUPY

In London, New York and Bangkok
Occupy is all the talk
London, New York and Belfast
Wall Street thought it wouldn’t last
The Politicians come and go
Yet we see the movement grow
These banker boys each sold their soul
Now Satan’s minion, is their role
With Ponzi schemes and pension fraud 
They’ve made the Euro, and the Dollar-god
These bankers crawl in self-made slime
Yet think, we see them, as sublime
When the starving masses rise
These idiots look up, in quaint surprise
As if they never, ever knew
Their devilish mix, their mammon brew
Would not bubble and burst, out of their hellish Ponzi pot
Where theft and graft, and greed were got
Right now the 99% do rise
And peacefully surprise
Obama, Blair, Cameron and cronies
Exposing them as Satan’s phonies
The British Bullshit Corporation  tell lies to the whole nation

We can vote X factors best
But starve our weans and damn the rest
We all believe that which we see
Cause it comes out the BBC
Yet it’s a hellish sewer
Shat in by Satan’s biggest whore
In her mouth she gobbles greed
Lies and deception, her biggest need
Then shits out war and poverty
Which then floats past for all to see
Along that sewer from the BBC
Where nothing is as it should be
There is One Truth, then there’s yours, then there’s mine
Until you starve, all things are fine
Till you’re against the wall
Then barriers will fall 
And you’ll begin to see
99% just aren’t free
And life and love is but a loss
Though you 1% should fear
ANON

Bankers + Tax Havens = Lower wages, benefits and pensions

This video clip of the ‘looting of America’ exposes the same type of looting that is occurring in the UK.  In fact, it is generally accepted that the City of London is an even more criminogenic environment than Wall Street.  Banks that are too big to fail and bankers that are too big to jail.

In spite of being only 12 minutes long, it romps through the major ruses with an impressive list of commentators which include New Economic Perspective‘s Professor Bill Black and Professor Stephanie Kelton; Naked Capitalism‘s Yves Smith, James Henry, author of ‘The price of OffShore Revisited’ and Citicorps’ 2005 plutonomy document on the inconvenience of the franchise.

There is even a clip of Goldmans Sach’s Lloyd Blankfein explaining that the 99% of Americans have to lower their expectations of wages, benefits, pensions and sell off the remaining public assets.  We don’t need the chief vampire squid.  We have George Osborne turning the UK into a third world country.

The Truthseeker: Looting Of America (E12)

The man who jailed a thousand bankers tells us how to do it; Twice the size of the US economy exposed offshore; and Wall Street circles the nation’s last assets. Seek truth from facts with former senior financial regulator Bill Black, The Price of Offshore Revisited author James Henry, former Wall Street executive Richard Eskow, Econned author Yves Smith, economists Stephanie Kelton and Dean Baker, and chief vampire squid Lloyd Blankfein.

Neil Barofsky: How Washington Saved Wall Street and Abandoned Main Street

Quote

Fascinating (and not in a good way) insight into the priorities of the US treasury.  The mindset according to Neil Barofsky was entirely focused on saving the banks and not at all on the ‘little people’.

The government’s special inspector general in charge of oversight of the Troubled Asset Relief Program (the “TARP” bank bailouts) – Neil M. Barofsky

‘Americans should lose faith in their government. They should deplore the captured politicians and regulators who distributed tax dollars to the banks without insisting that they be accountable. The American people should be revolted by a financial system that rewards failure and protects those who drove it to the point of collapse and will undoubtedly do so again.

Only with this appropriate and justified rage can we hope for the type of reform that will one day break our system free from the corrupting grasp of the megabanks.’

Aug 2, 2012 – From the Majority Report, live M-F 12 noon EST and via daily podcast at http://Majority.FM:

Former Tarp Inspector General, Neil Barofsky joined Sam to talk about his new book “Bailout: An Insider Account of How Washington Abandoned Main Street While Rescuing Wall Street.” Neil and Sam discussed the widespread fraud in the TARP program, how the HAMP program was designed to provide a “soft landing” for banks the revolving door between Washington and Wall Street and getting a “Bullet or Bribe” Colombian Drug Cartel Style offer from the former head of TARP, Herb Allison.

In a different video interview, with Business Insider, Barofsky touched on everything from the announcement that Americans holding Fannie and Freddie mortgages would not get a principal write downs, to the general culture in Washington.
Barofsky said the incentive structure in the nation’s capitol is all wrong. There’s a revolving door between bureaucrats in Washington and Wall Street banks, and politicians just want to keep their jobs.
Barofsky said that for regulators it’s something like this:
“You can play ball and good things can happen to you get a big pot of gold at the end of the Wall Street rainbow or you can do your job be aggressive and face personal ruin…We really need to rethink how we govern and how regulate”.

The big question for the British public, is whether the same mindset has operated across UK government – because overwhelmingly, the evidence would suggest that the priority has also been to protect the banks at all costs, regardless of the cost to ordinary people’s lives.
