The New Wall Street Psychological Operation: Crackdowns, Clawbacks, Regulatory Rules, Reining In Pay

Look at the new “pay czar regulatory rules.” These rules clearly show you the new power structure: Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan are still above the law and regulation of any kind. The psuedo-regulation on the tier just below them — Citigroup, Bank of America and AIG — will not limit much in the overall scheme of things. It’s not like the “pay czar” is going to get some of our trillions back. This is just the latest media hoax to calm an outraged population and keep us at bay, kick us further down the line.

When you read the headlines about “pay czar crackdowns” and “clawbacks” and “reining in pay,” you should know that this whole Wall Street psychological operation is being run by the same man who sold us the Iraq war!

Here’s an example of misleading coverage from ABC News:

Bank of America Chief Executive Ken Lewis, who has announced he will leave the company by the end of the year, will receive no more pay for 2009 and will have more than $1 million of his prior pay clawed back, according to a deal Feinberg struck.

Poor Ken Lewis. The Economic Hitman, a.k.a. Mr. Bank of America, the poor guy has to work for the rest of the year for “no pay.” Oh, these strict new regulations! Well, you see, there is a missing part to this oh so popular media meme. Here’s a headline that should be written, “Ken Lewis to Pocket $70 million”… yep, poor Ken Lewis. He has to wait until the end of the year to receive $70 mill. If there were such a thing as law in this land, instead of getting $70 million at the end of the year, he would be getting a prison sentence.

This is a tragic comedy of Shakespearean proportions.

Due to these psychological operations, the average American is so thoroughly propagandized that most are yet to realize that a weapon more powerful than an atomic bomb has hit the US.

An economic deathblow has been struck, and the “republic” lay in ruins.

No one sounded the alarm loud enough to get through the propaganda system. The political process and mainstream media are so thoroughly dominated that the people remain passive as the noose is tightened around their neck, it is as if an entire population has been sentenced to a slow death.

Trillions of dollars have vanished, we know who was involved, and yet, there is no investigation. While paid-off “lawmakers” battle over every aspect of the healthcare bill — a bill that will once again screw most Americans in favor of more corporate profits and huge salaries and bonuses for the top executives of the companies who are sponsoring these puppet “politicians” — these “lawmakers” seem to have forgotten about $23 trillion. No, not $23 billion, we are talking $23 trillion taxpayer dollars!

Actually, Shakespearean proportions look rather small in comparison. $23 trillion is New God money.

The Bush Regime took down the US population. With Paulson leading, the financial crisis became the last ultimate act. The greatest theft of all time, trillions vanish. The entire power structure goes off the grid, off the balance sheet, into the dark.

It reminds me of Dostoevsky, “but enough; I don’t want to write more from the underground.”

    “going to get some of our trillions back”

    Hi. Who is “our”? Dollars have no titles of ownership, and each has “Federal Reserve Note” written on it. I hope you’re not the kind who actually bought into the self lie of “taxpayer dollars” or “YOUR hard earned money”. Both are fallacies. Only things with (en)titles of ownership… can be owned. Dollars can’t be… no matter how deeply they are (snow-) banked-up into a hoard-pile. All mone, and thus all things using it and/or purchased WITH it, are “owned” by the Federal Reserve… whatever THAT is. Its likely a cabal controlled by the Columbia Freemasons… as I believe that is THEIR pyramid scheme symbol on the back of the USA dollar… and the USA gov is in a district of Columbia and not part of the USA mainland.

    Wingnut – Our dollars are remuneration for our labor. We sell our labor – freely or not – for these dollars. What is your plan to get us our money?

  6. Wingnut said on October 29th, 2009 at 3:58am #

    b99… I think you can see that I don’t believe in ownership or economies. Not a single other living creature on the planet… uses economies. And of the humans that use such man-made things, it appears to be only the capitalists that are not forced-to-join rat-racing pyramid schemes like capitalism/AmWay/American Way. Around this part of town, “forced to join” = felony extortion (forced religion – competer’s church).

    Nope, I’ll stick with nature/natural, thanks. Others do MY doctor, MY lawyer, MY kids, MY marriage, MY cigarette, MY husband/wife, MY house, MY lunchbreak, MY car, MY labor, MY job, MY money. I use “a” and “the” instead of “my”. Deer don’t do advertising, lawsuits, wallets, purses, money, titles of ownership, store receipts, borders, guns, motorsports, sweets, shopping, profiting, taxing, billings, and/or “do it or else”. Again, its not “our” money. It belongs to the Federal Reserve… which I believe is part of the “republic for which it stands” pyramid scheme/empire/imperialism. Inequality systems and monetary discrimination condoning, promoting, and joining… is about as immoral as it comes.

    Ever notice how “separation of church and state”… REALLY means… separation of COOPERATOR’S church and state? It also appears to mean the solid merging of COMPETER’S church and state. We all know it. Can we ever admit it? I doubt it.

    I do not know what “cooperator’s church” or “competers church” means.
    I had for a long time thought that ?all churches in US , other christian and muslim lands ?always side with ?all plutocratic governances.

    We also need to distinguish btwn governance and gov’ts, because gov’ts come and go, but a governance usually stays the same.
    All major churhes approve of all governances that are set up by plutocrats.

    A plutocratic governance; i.e., constitution and its main executive branches
    is couched in an extremely vague language; understood by no one but interpreted by executive branches which always come up with just the right interpretation of any of its verbal but meaningless brilliancies.

    The meanings extracted from such vagueness is never called an interpretation; it is always described as, “That’s in constitution or that’s what constitution says”.

    In addition, religion cannot be separated from reality! And state, whatever that may mean to each person, is also part of the whole.
    The word “state” is a generalization. It may be supplanted with the word “all of the people in a country; includes constitution and branches of a gov’t”.

    How vague a constitution-governance can be written, existence of slavery, lynching, segregation, racism in US over centuries, clearly prove.
    And we have exact governance now as we had 200 yrs ago.

    Torture of abducted people, hunt for muslims, probably ?all innocent today also prove that in such a system of governance, ruling class can do anything it wants! And i did not even touch on some 100+ minor and major wars or nuking to death ab 250mn people.
    This can happen only with a ‘hallowed-by-word-of-mouth constitution or a constitution made by ‘god’. No wonder americans say, “God {‘god’ in my usage} bless america?
    So, Sieg Heil, God Bless America, Holy Land keep on sowing hatred, intolerance, bombs, missiles, oppression, etc.
    And Satan wants more of the same! More, much more is coming, kids!

    Certainly deer understand ‘my offspring.’ They’ll fight a cougar to protect what is theirs – their own young. And an uncountable number of animal species understand the notion of ‘my territory.’ – which they protect against others of their own species or competitor species. Even gorillas can be taught to claim a kitten as ‘my pet.’ No, ownership and ‘I, me, my’ are natural and predate human culture. Besides, human culture itself is natural.

    I would guess that if someone here were to start posting on DV using the moniker ‘wingnut’ you might see it as a usurpation of what is yours. And you would find yourself a new ‘my name’.

    While I may have no quibble with you on the evils of the capitalist economy (and the economy should just be viewed as a relationship, not an entity), it is certain that human economies go a very long way back, and money itself quite clearly predates capitalism.

    These debts of paper money are linked to, and become the responsibility of or burden on, the citizens. The citizens cannot plausibly escape these debts by leaving the country, but the institutions that are bilking the taxpayers can leave when they have exhausted the supply of wealth. The debts, which are looked upon as assets by the creditors on the citizens, are a way to control the masses. Indentured servitude.

    Hi again. Thanks for the replies, and well said, AM. Not only indentured servitude, but “join OR ELSE” forcing, which is a felony.

    BBV, yes you DO know what “competer’s church” is, and if you don’t, look on the back of the USA dollar. See the pyramid scheme symbol? THAT company… the one that owns all the dollars and “businesses”… the tip of the empire. THAT company. AmWay (American Way/New World Order). Its a giant church/religion/company. It owns all other companies… at least the ones that use THEIR green papers. They claim they want separation of church and state, but THAT church (the church of competers/AmWay) is certainly not separated from “state”, Hell, nearly the entire USA gov are members of THAT greenpaper-worshipping church. Got any REAL CHRISTIANS (from the cooperator’s church) involved in the USA gov? No. Because THAT is the church that the OTHER church wanted to eliminate from having a say (via separation of church and state unwritten rules). Separation of church and state (as it is followed lately) REALLY means… separation of morals and business. Its the separation of cooperators from controlists. Put nuns or farm moms in charge of the USA gov… and watch what happens. Goodbye monetary/ownership discrimination. Without monetary (competer’s church greenpapers) discrimination, the whole pyramid scheme “order” and its rat-racings… will flop to level. And level… is where WE/YOU want to be. No more “getting a leg up” of pyramiding. Egalitarian, monetary and ownership discrimination-less cooperation… will again be accepted and held-firm as the norm. The cooperator’s church (level, no-hierarchy equality) will not “win”, though… as cooperator’s don’t compete. We don’t do winners and losers… we only do equality. C’mon aboard the new movement. We don’t fight, we prove, via intelligence and logic.
