    Excellent discussion of the monetary system. A discussion that you won’t find by watching Max Keiser, Keiser spin is that the people running the system are incompetents when in fact they are quite competent and running the system as it is designed to function.

    Another “journalist” in this vein is Mike Whitney. For the past 5 years he’s been on a campaign of “blaming the FED” and in particular Chairman Bernanke for his FED policies. The tone of Whitney article gives you the impression that he could do a better job running the FED rather than raise question about the institution itself. And that’s the point of many of these financial journalists is to keep you from asking the underlying question.

    Isn’t interesting how the Left complains about the U.S. this and that yet they never call for adherence to the U.S. Constitution written by “Indian killers and slave owners” which would help people understand that the FED is UNCONSTITUTIONAL. That’s right but to be a “constitutionalists” to a Lefty would make you a “reactionary” and a “white nationalist” and you can’t called that. This is the hateful rhetoric of the Left designed to neutralize opposition to Jewry.

    I am not sure I agree with you on Max Keiser — he, as far as I have seen — does not consider the greatest transfer of wealth EVER to be an accident of incompetence. He always talks about their criminality and endless rapaciousness and he names them all.

      My take on Keiser is that he avoids the fundamental underlying issue of the financial system that O’Keefe addressed on his show. Keiser on the other hand gives viewers the impression that the activities of the bankers are “criminal”. Unfortunately this spin is misleading. To label the bankers as “criminal” assumes that a class of “good” bankers that would run the federal reserve system better than the existing group. However since the problem is systemic no group of “honest” bankers can run a fundamentally corrupt system “better”. The entire banking system needs to be scrapped.

    I see what you mean now. I agree. I did not see that angle because of his overt admiration for Iceland, which did nevertheless adopt a different system, true enough
