October 9, 2011 Leave a comment
From: Mindsi2
Alternative Views was along running public access show out of San Antonio Texas. It’s a great muckraking show that didn’t have a lot of style or production values but it did deliver the truth. We have several different episodes, including an interview w/ Ron Paul, posted on our site.

Here we offering an edited version of Alternative Views #478. Host frank Morrow with economist Jack Hopper reviews two books on the Federal Reserve, which provides a close-up of this secretive and powerful organization. The books are “Secrets of the Temple,” by William Greider, and “The Secrets of the Federal Reserve,” by Eustace Mullins.

The books show the history and incredible, unchecked power of the Fed to control the US economy, to effect the outcome of presidential elections, and to wreak havoc on the American people while enriching the wealth of the powerful people and institutions controlling the system. The complex workings of the Fed are discussed.
There is also a discussion on Ronald Reagan’s trickle down economics and its disastrous impact on the economy.

For the complete hour long show

Bernie Sanders: The Fed Audit $16 Trillion In Corporate Welfare

 Once again while other politcians talk about things we should be doing Senator Bernie Sanders gets it done. Want an audit of the Fed put in an amendment in a bill that has to pass.

From the Office of Senator Sanders –

The first top-to-bottom audit of the Federal Reserve uncovered eye-popping new details about how the U.S. provided a whopping $16 trillion in secret loans to bail out American and foreign banks and businesses during the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. An amendment by Sen. Bernie Sanders to the Wall Street reform law passed one year ago this week directed the Government Accountability Office to conduct the study. “As a result of this audit, we now know that the Federal Reserve provided more than $16 trillion in total financial assistance to some of the largest financial institutions and corporations in the United States and throughout the world,” said Sanders. “This is a clear case of socialism for the rich and rugged, you’re-on-your-own individualism for everyone else.”

Why We Must Reduce Military Spending. A Bipartisan Comment

From HuffingtonPost

By Rep. Barney Frank & Ron Paul.

“As members of opposing political parties, we disagree on a number of important issues. But we must not allow honest disagreement over some issues to interfere with our ability to work together when we do agree.

By far the single most important of these is our current initiative to include substantial reductions in the projected level of American military spending as part of future deficit reduction efforts. For decades, the subject of military expenditures has been glaringly absent from public debate. Yet the Pentagon budget for 2010 is $693 billion — more than all other discretionary spending programs combined. Even subtracting the cost of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, military spending still amounts to over 42% of total spending.”

Busting The Washington Racket. Two Solutions


We will never change anything in Washington as long as we liberals and conservatives blame one another for the problem. And then they place their trust Republicans and Democrats to make sure their agenda is being followed. What we have had for the past thirty years is an unchecked orgy of debt and corruption masquerading as neo liberal economic theory that has just about destroyed this nation. Couple that with an unbridled desire to export our version of freedom upon any country we feel the need to by whatever means necessary.  And what you end up with is a huge mess and a broken system where all those that profit from it point their fingers at each other on tv and then laugh all the way to the bank. It’s time for the left and right to come together on a set of issues that will change the direction the country is moving and give back to the people more power over the decisions that are made.

How to Turn Congress Inc. Back to Just Congress

Here is a post written by Katrina vanden Heuvel of the Nation. It is about a bill in Congress that offers a partial solution both sides can agree on.

“It is clear that the kind of strong reforms we urgently need won’t be achieved simply by electing a new president or new members of Congress. Despite the voters’ mandate for change, the underlying problem of Washington — what author and Washington Post reporter Robert Kaiser calls “so damn much money” — remains unaltered and is in many ways more powerful than even before. In the wake of the Supreme Court’s recent Citizens United decision — which awarded corporations the rights of citizens when it comes to electioneering, allowing them to use their coffers to manipulate political discourse — the prospect of a Congress “brought to you by (insert corporate sponsor here)” has only grown.”
