Jesse Ventura: Conspiracy Theory – Wall Street

These videos tell some of the story of the conspiracy between Goldman Sachs, AIG, and the government. While it is a little corny and over-dramatic, it does contain some good information concerning the ties between the government and Wall St. including some interviews with insiders. I guess you could call it the idiots guide to the Great Recession.

Firstly, thank you for telling everyone about this. Don't listen to the people who don't agree, they have been brainwashed by poisoned processed food and fluorinated water by the shape shifting reptilian overlords.

Secondly, you will need to go to ground after posting this truth. They are coming for you. What may seem like people walking their dogs (the dogs are really recording devices) and joggers are now watching you, waiting for the strike team to assemble in the helicopters.

You need to leave immediately and get to a safe house. Best if the walls are lined with tin foil so your thoughts can't betray you. Buy heavy curtains lined with metal wire, keep them shut. Watch out for plumbing, keep it shut with a plug and use a bucket for your sanitary needs (from rain water of course, no fluoridation). They can send recording devices to read your mind through the plumbing while you sleep. Be sure to change your clothing style and shopping habits. They will be watching your friends and family too. Only access the internet in changing locations from public stations (libraries, universities, etc...). Live free in the urban wilderness till they are toppled from power and you can come out of hiding. There will be a call when everything is safe.

I don't know about conspiracy theories... but one thing that is absurd and should strike fear into many is the fact that no one is talking about how Washington Mutual was handed to JPMorgan by the FDIC for literally nothing. In fact, JP Morgan paid 1.9 Billion for the bank-- but received 4 Billion in back taxes (that WAMU had already paid) back from the government. So basically JPMorgan was paid 2.1 Billion to take over Washington Mutual. The FDIC also conveniently left out Washington Mutual of their bailout plans even after being asked numerous times to be included. Even after the bank was shown to be well capitalized. Why would the largest savings and loans bank be left out? Obviously, because Jamie Dimon has a special relationship with the government-- he should probably be in jail-- and it wouldn't surprise me if eventually these WAMU shareholders prevail. Unbelievable that something like this can happen in our "free" country.

Only rich white males are free, which is the way rich white males intended it to be when they wrote the Constitution.

Thank you for adding absolutly nothing to the discussion. Perhaps one day you will add something worthwhile for someone to think about.
In the mean time remember.

We are the government, we are doing what is best for you.

Just give us the money, do not ask what it is for.

Congress Shall Make No Law . . . Abridging Freedom of Speech

The Constitution Applies in Good Times and In Bad Times

Everyone Is Innocent Until Proven Guilty

Do you want to be free, or safe?

Are you going to believe us, or your lying eyes?

Nothing to see here....... move along.

When Oprah (the woman the pretty much got Obama into the Whitehouse) reads this she is going to give you such a beat down.

The most brilliant accomplishment of the conspirators has been to succesfully paint anyone alluding to a conspiracy as some sort of nut job whacko. The vast majority of the population still snickers at the mention of a conspiracy, while the conspirators rob them blind in broad daylight, and provide the illusion of safety in exchange for freedom ( Do you want to be free, or safe? ).

You mean like our president? Get a life. Relentless hard work and a vision to succeed will always lead to prosperity (see President Obama for a perfect example). I'm not a Obama supporter, in fact I disagree with nearly all of his policies, but his life is the definition of the "American Dream," which is a person born into poverty and rising to riches through hard work. It is BECAUSE of the constitution that we even know who Obama is.

I'm looking forward to seeing the movie "Inside Job". From what I hear, the explanation of the mugging by Wall Street will make you want to get a pound of flesh from a Goldman Sachs executive.
