Secret Weapon - How Economic Terrorism Brought Down the US Stock Market
http://secretweapon.org/ ^ | Kevin D. Freeman

Posted on 01/17/2012 8:02:21 AM PST by al_c

Who’s Really To Blame For America’s Catastrophic Financial Meltdown And Devastating National Recession?

Contrary to what the “Occupy Movement” might tell you, it’s not greedy Wall Street executives. No, as one of America’s top financial professionals reveals in this shocking new book, the real culprit is economic warfare, with our foreign enemies exploiting our lurking financial weaknesses.

In Secret Weapon, Kevin D. Freeman unveils how all the evidence – including motive, means, and opportunity – points to America’s foreign enemies as deliberately pushing our economy over the brink. In this stunning expose, Freeman reveals:

* The evidence linking Communist China and Islamic finance to economic warfare against the United States

*Why initial reports linked the 2008 stock market crash to economic terrorism – and why the Obama administration continues to look the other way

*How the financial attack unfolded – and how the perpetrators tried to cover their tracks

*Why you should expect another financial attack even more devastating than the last one – and how you can protect yourself from it.

In Secret Weapon you’ll learn what our enemies know and what the Obama administration has chosen to ignore – that our financial system is profoundly vulnerable to financial terrorism, and that we are being targeted for further and even more destructive attacks by our enemies, who want to cripple America as the world’s leading economy. If you want to protect yourself and protect our country, then you need to read Secret Weapon to understand how we have entered a new age of warfare – an age our enemies want to make the Dark Ages of the United States.

A friend and former co-worker sent me an email about and upcoming book signing for his brothers new book, Secret Weapon. I've been looking into the book and have read some excerpts. I'm not much of a reader, but will be buying this one.

Any of you GBTV (Glenn Beck) fans out there have heard him discussing it over the past day or two.

Just wanted to throw this out into FR land for anyone interested.

Sounds like Soros-et-al wants to lay blame to foreign elements rather than their own (Soros, Open Society, zer() as the stooge) hides.

Two events, both of which were perpetrated by the Obama regime have destroyed the bond market and the commodities market.

1.) Stealing the property of GM and Chrysler bond holders and turning it over to the Auto Workers unions when those two automakers went bust. Why would anyone in their right mind invest in a bond after that bout of sheer idiocy on the part of Obummer?

2.) MFC Global - Property in vaults stolen under fraudulent circumstances and given to make JP Morgan whole. Nobody goes to prison - not even Corzine. This was theft clear and simple - people had gold bars with serial numbers engraved on them in safe deposit boxes. This is as if your car was stolen when the guy who you rented a garage from had financial trouble...

Nobody in their right mind can trust markets any longer, at least not in the USA. Obama destroyed the bond market and the commodities market with sheer idiocy.

It’s over and the Muslims didn’t do it, the Chinese didn’t do it, the Soviets didn’t do it...

And no one saw it coming. Gimme a break. If we were so blind, we deserve what we got. It’s called losing. Like we play fair in every case. Who sold those crap loan bundles to the world? Who rated them AAA? It was a matter of time before a rationalizing exculpatory book like this came out. Another gothic Goebbelsian “stab in the back” evasion of responsibility, when the culprit is our own stupidity.

The economic terrorists that have done the most damage are in Washington and state houses nationwide.

They inhabit city halls and number in the millions... over 20 million government employees all up to no damned good.

Just heard him on Glenn’s show this morning which was good to know. Then Glenn went on to bash Newt, made me sick! Who in the world does Glenn want to be the GOP nominee? One of the guys on there did say Newt won the debate last night but I sure don’t understand them rallying around Romney.

I’m sure the “no one saw it coming” us a bit of an exaggeration to help build interest. An no, this alone wasn’t the only element that made our economy what it is today. But the attacks on 9/11 did make a direct hit on our financial center and the ensuing WOT with two theaters along with the clean up and rebuilding have cost us dearly.

I think it’s an interesting take on the subject. I’ll post more info here as I get it.

Nope it wasn't foreign enemies

This quote from a Polish reporter in a Czech newspaper says it all

“The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.

“The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.

“The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”

And just subsitutue Romeny on our side in for Obama

Reading Freerepublic leads you believe everyone is as informed and has their positions well thought out as you, but a 5 minute talk with "regular" people out in there in the "real world" will quickly show we are nothing but a nation full of idiots. Watch a skit of "Jaywalking" on the Jay leno show or Sean Hannity's man on the street, THAT"S the NORM.

Re posts 5 and 14. Yup.

1) The fact that the bondholders of GM and Chrysler had their equity stolen by presidential fiat is unconscionable.

2) MF Global might become a much bigger deal than it is. Why Corzine is still walking around is beyond me.

3) In 2008 the US elected a moslem communist to the presidency. A population that wants to be led by such a man, or who unknowingly elects such a man gets what it deserves.

The election of 2012 in the US is as important as the 1933 election was in Germany.

I saw this guy on Becks show last night too. Tonight he will be talking about what everyone can do to protect themselves. After I heard this on Becks radio show, I then heard him say he was bringing SE Cupp on to discuss a derogatory and vicious article she wrote about Newt acting like a hormonal woman. No thanks. Turned him off.

Financial Meltdown

An unprecedented upheaval in financial markets led to one of the most tumultuous times in Wall Street’s 216-year history. Here is a brief synopsis of major events in the meltdown.

Nelow are my records I kept which I felt may be relevant at that time period:

Democrats were WARNED of Financial crisis and did NOTHING (Fannie/Freddie)

Now when I look back to late 08, I see a lot of interesting things:

September 7, 2008

McCain Moves Ahead 48-45

http://www.gallup.com/poll/110050/gallup-daily-mccain-moves-ahead-48-45.aspx

To this very day, I feel there is something strange about the Paulsen advice to Bush to do the first bailout. Paulsen is a Goldman Sachs guy and so is Schumer. (They are both Democrats) Remember Schumer caused a run on IndyMac late June of 08. I don’t think he is a dumb guy.

IndyMac: Mini Bank Run, Thanks to Schumer (late June of 2008)

http://www.housingwire.com/2008/07/01/indymac-mini-bank-run-thanks-to-schumer/

I see Goldman Sachs made out like a bandit in the outcome of all of this. I do not know for sure, but I look backward and forward to now and it all makes me wonder. I just did a Google search and found this:

http://www.thedeal.com/dealscape/2008/09/goldman_eyeing_assets_of_small.php

Is Goldman eyeing failed IndyMac?

Per Rep Paul Kanjorski, Democrat, Pennsylvania:

On Thursday Sept 15, 2008 at roughly 11 AM The Federal Reserve noticed a tremendous draw down of money market accounts in the USA to the tune of $550 Billion dollars in a matter of an hour or two. Money was being removed electronically.

http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2009/02/tight-before-the-election-of-president-hussein-an-electronic-run-on-the-banks.html

Published September 23, 2008 at 2:26 PM
With Goldman Sachs Group Inc. converting itself to a bank holding company to strengthen its future, the New York-based financial institution is said to be on the prowl for deposits, but not necessarily an entire bank. Such speculation has led some in the media to ask whether Goldman could be looking to acquire the assets of failed IndyMac Federal Bank, which has fallen under the control of the FDIC.

Since the time LBJ inaugurated The Great Society, half of this country has developed a welfare entitlement mentality, and the self-serving politicians have been much too eager to oblige. The insatiable government is taxing and spending more than the country can sustain. Like the brainwashed peoples freed from behind the Iron Curtain, it will take our people generations to unlearn the communist tendencies that our government, media and schools have wrought. If there is not an electoral revolution in 2012, our country is finished.

Yup, it was Chinese and Islamic terrorists who lent hundreds of billions of dollars to people who could never pay it back so they could buy houses the never could afford, so that some unsuspecting banker could bundle those loans and sell them to the Chinese and Middle East investors.

This is garbage conspiracy rot.

The financial meltdown was a result ultimately of the repeal of Glass-Steagall and a deep capture of SEC and Congress by investment bankers, their surrogate hedge funds and insurers.

No one has gone to prison yet even as the malfeasance makes Enron look like a kindergarten playground.

There are no doubt many factors in play and foreign intervention is one of them.

But take away the events emanating from repeal of Glass-Steagall and the current mess would never have developed with such effect.

Foreign interventionism is a mere drop in the bucket of poison that was filled by greedy banks and their surrogate hedge funds.

Banks set up rogue filled wild west mindsets in hedge trading subsidiaries. For example, Bank of America Securities. Such subsidiaries were populated by nefarious gunslingers who convinced bank executives that they had to run their hedge funds in ruthless fashion because the market was ruthless.

Hence, we had the establishment of MERS; we had deeds of trust deposited into pools with no legal or legitimate beneficiaries: we had decoupling of notes from their security; we had false insurance cleverly labeled as credit default swaps so to evade insurance regulation and so much more. All of this behavior emanated from the permitting of rogue dealers in the markets linked to 100:1 leverage money coming from Investment Banks who obtained cheap money from the Federal Reserve, an agency with little to zero oversight. And all this behavior stemmed from repeal of G-S.

You should keep in mind that the Big Apple financial media is joined at the hip with the banksters and they put out garbage everyday to distract whoever is foolish enough to read their rot. They lay blame on Greek Debt, Italian Bonds and anything and everything else outside New York.

And the result is that not one bankster criminal has gone to prison. And this is for the simple reason that they are playing Russian Roulette with our Federal Government, and our Government is backing down.

Our government is backing down because the nature of the problem is not transparent and obfuscated. And the reason for this lack of transparency is because there has been no strident investigation to bring the facts to the public. Our Government will not investigate because bank failure could mean the US Government FDIC could be on tap for 50 to 75 trillion or more.

They, the banksters, are holding a gun to our head.

So go ahead and talk up foreign conspiracy, Soros evil genius and so forth. In so doing you will make the scum of Wall St., smile at your acceptance of membership into their useful idiots club.

Yes it was over the top and I should have written it as:

“So LET THE READER go ahead and talk up foreign conspiracy, Soros evil genius and so forth. In so doing SUCH READERS will make the scum of Wall St., smile at THEIR acceptance of membership into their useful idiots club.”

It really was for readers of the thread as I note your original comment was fairly presented. My apologies.

I have a hard slap edge to my writing. I use it to get attention and then fill the shock moment with useful and accurate information. This is one reason, perhaps the only significant reason I like Newt Gingrich because he does the same.

And by the way of more information on me, I am over 50 years old, single father of a 5-year old boy. We sometimes watch the 3 Stooges, and enjoy the stupidity.

Here's more from Kevin Freeman ...

Warren Buffett​ describes credit derivatives as “financial weapons of mass destruction.” George Soros​ identifies credit default swaps and unlimited short selling as instruments used to carry out the bear raid on Lehman Brothers that triggered the 2008 financial meltdown. Hedge fund billionaire Leon Cooperman insists that short selling should be restrained by reinstating the uptick rule and that limits should be placed on credit default swaps and high-frequency trading before it’s too late. John Mauldin, a best-selling author and online commentator for over a million readers, calls credit default swaps a continuing crisis and an incipient debacle. Jim Cramer of CNBC fame labels credit default swaps, high-frequency trading, and leveraged ETFs “dastardly devices.” Marc Cuban​, another billionaire investor, equates high-frequency trading and leveraged ETFs with financial hacking, arguing that they have ruined the market.

These individuals—experts in financial markets from across the political spectrum—have each argued that many of today’s financial instruments are extremely dangerous. All seemingly agree with Mr. Buffett that they represent financial WMDs. There should be no doubt that these financial WMDs played a significant if not defining role in the near Armageddon of 2008-09 that wiped $50 trillion of global wealth from the planet’s balance sheet. Yet, three years later, we have done virtually nothing to understand let alone disarm them.

Thanks for the link and yes, I am aware of all those aspects of the financial damage and destruction.

But I have gone beyond the mere pointing out of ‘dastardly’ instruments and rule changes (e.g. uptick).

I have gone into a search and assessment of the behaviors that led to such destructive instruments and rules.

Because all the things your link points out are at root the creation of men and women, and the real question is what allowed the internal demons of the rulemakers to take control?

Wall St. has people with internal greed streaks that are contained and quelled by law and enforcement. Take away the law and enforcement and one will witness the return of Tammany Hall crossover into banking.

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970203716204577016092542307600.html

What allowed Tammany Hall to crossover to banking? It was the repeal of Glass-Steagall.

Willie Sutton, when asked the question of “Why did you rob banks” replied “because that’s where the money is”.

And one of the money quotes in the above link is:

“The future of his city worries Mr. Siegel. Forty years ago, New York had the most manufacturing jobs in America. But as the finance sector’s share of the national economy grew to 23% in 2007 from 7% in 1980, New York turned almost into a one-company town. Meantime, the growing claims on the public purse by those who make little to no contribution to the economy have driven up taxes and the costs of doing business.”

And how was the NY financial sector going to sustain the Big Apple with its new public sector Tammany Hall? The answer was it wasn’t able unless it could figure out where the money was, and the money was in banks.

The repeal of Glass-Steagall allowed Tammany Hall to rob the banks.

All of the HFT, CDS. MBS, 100 X 1 Leverage and the like are artifacts of the behavior.

And this robbery was not in the name of Capitalism which is a constructive force in human events. But the robbers used the cloak of Capitalism to fake out the wise guys with inquisitive minds, much in the same manner of Romney’s Bain Capital which is more aptly named Bain Vulturism.
