The Capitalist Conspiracy / American Debt 101

File this story under the the more things change the more they stay the same department. The Capitalist Conspiracy is an interesting conspiracy theory film from 1969 tracing the development of international banking in the US and England and the secret society behind it. It is based on a book written a self described insider Carroll Quigley who is indeed somebody with a solid background within the establishment. We are including a sample of the film that traces the development of the Federal Reserve System. I’ve included a link to Mr. Quigley’s wikipedia page as well as a link to the complete film which is available for free at the InternetArchive.

At Occupy Your Mind we examine history and examine how America got into the mess we’re in. We examine different aspects of what is called conspiracy theory and see what connections they might have in this history. We are firm believers in the principal that those who fail to learn from history is doomed to repeat it.
We also have an interview w/ Ron Paul where he discusses a wide variety of topics relating to economics and banking.

The Occupy Movement, Why Are They There? Answered

October 10, 2011 Leave a comment

I’ve just had my umpteenth conversation with someone about the global Occupy movement. And of course since the mass media focuses on the violence and what the people look like explaining what the background is doesn’t get a lot of attention. Part of it is these people are angry about the class warfare that is being waged against a large part of the population and are now trying to figure out what concrete steps need to be taken. In short it’s not a well organized group with a fully developed agenda.

So today we offer a couple of items for those looking for answers as to what this all about. The first is a post from TomDispatch.com written by Andy Kroll and he lays out how the past decade has destroyed the “American dream” for a lot of people.

America’s Lost Decade

Posted by Andy Kroll at 9:17am, October 6, 2011.

“In this lost decade, according to economist Jared Bernstein, poor families watched their income shrivel by 12%, falling from $13,538 to $11,904. Even families in the 90th percentile of earners suffered a 1% percent hit, dropping on average from $141,032 to $138,923. Only among the staggeringly wealthy was this not a lost decade: the top 1% of earners enjoyed 65% of all income growth in America for much of the decade, one hell of a run, only briefly interrupted by the financial meltdown of 2008 and now, by the look of things, back on track.

The swelling ranks of the American poor tell an even more dismal story. In September, the Census Bureau rolled out its latest snapshot of poverty in the United States, counting more than 46 million men, women, and children among this country’s poor. In other words, 15.1% of all Americans are now living in officially defined poverty, the most since 1993. (Last year, the poverty line for a family of four was set at $22,113; for a single working-age person, $11,334.) Unlike in the lost decade, the poverty rate decreased for much of the 1990s, and in 2000 was at about 11%.”

Obama Fiddling As Wall Street Burns?

August 24, 2011 Leave a comment

One of the greatest financial scams in history has taken place in the first years of the 21st century. Everything came to a head in the fall of 2008 with the meltdown and bailout of the financial services industry. Barack Obama was elected president in part because his slogan

“change you can believe in” was welcomed by a nation tired of business as usual.
Sadly what we have gotten out of the Obama administration has been more of the same.  His economic team was staffed with the very people who oversaw the financial disaster that occurred. The Justice department headed by a former corporate lawyer Eric Holder has shown more aggression towards medical marijuana than the crook and scamsters on Wall Street. And the President himself fought for financial reform about as hard as he fought for single payer or higher taxes for the rich.Which is to say not much.
We have presented a number of posts on this subject. They can be fond under our American Racket category. Today we present a couple of stories first is from Shahien Nasiripour on Huffington Post about the removal of New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman from a task force investigating foreclosure abuses. The second is from Rolling Stone writer Matt Taibbi shady practices in the Securities & Exchange Commission. We also have an interview from Amy Goodman on Democracy Now! w/ Mr Taibbi

New York Attorney General Kicked Off Government Group Leading
Foreclosure Probe

“Schneiderman, a Democrat who’s in his first term as New York’s top law enforcer, has been among a group of state legal officers who has also questioned the desire for a speedy resolution. He’s leading his own investigation into mortgage improprieties, subpoenaing documents from the nation’s largest financial institutions and reviewing court records for possible illegal home repossessions.

The Obama administration officials — in particular, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan — have publicly stated on numerous occasions that they want a quick resolution to the 50-state mortgage probe.

Sources said attorneys general like Schneiderman, along with the top legal officers from Massachusetts, Delaware and Nevada, among others, were complicating that goal by questioning the plan to scuttle the state and federal investigations in exchange for a settlement.

These attorneys general have said they’re reluctant to sign on to an agreement that effectively kills their ongoing investigations or prevents new ones from being launched. Beau Biden, Delaware’s top law enforcer, remains on the states’ executive committee.”

Is the SEC Covering Up Wall Street Crime?

“Many of the destroyed files involved companies and individuals who would later play prominent roles in the economic meltdown of 2008. Two MUIs involving con artist Bernie Madoff vanished. So did a 2002 inquiry into financial fraud at Lehman Brothers, as well as a 2005 case of insider trading at the same soon-to-be-bankrupt bank. A 2009 preliminary investigation of insider trading by Goldman Sachs was deleted, along with records for at least three cases involving the infamous hedge fund SAC Capital.

The widespread destruction of records was brought to the attention of Congress in July, when an SEC attorney named Darcy Flynn decided to blow the whistle. According to Flynn, who was responsible for helping to manage the commission’s records, the SEC has been destroying records of preliminary investigations since at least 1993. After he alerted NARA to the problem, Flynn reports, senior staff at the SEC scrambled to hide the commission’s improprieties.”
