The only aspect of the 2008 de facto financial system collapse that was more stunning than the fact that NONE of the big banks were prosecuted for crimes that were obvious to a 2nd grader was that fact that the Taxpayers were squeezed for close to a $1 trillion dollars to enable the big banks to continue on their unimpeded crime spree.
My good friend and colleague, John Titus, has produced a documentary which details the methodical manner in which Wall Street – and specifically Goldman Sachs – has completely annexed the Department of Justice.
Titus applies his acute legal mind and painstakingly meticulous research to lay out the case for a legal system that has become hopelessly and irreparably corrupted by Wall Street and the scarcely-publicized DC law firm DC law firm, Covington & Burling.
As you watch this brilliant documentary, see if you think Covington & Burling reminds you of the law firm in the Grisham novel, “The Firm,” and Goldman Sachs reminds you of the Chicago mobster clan depicted in the story.
The underlying theme in this documentary is the manner in which big money has assumed complete control of the United States political and justice system, as our Government progresses further down the road to oligarchic, totalitarian system – Rule by Money has replaced Rule of Law.
Funny you mentioned The Firm as it relates to John’s piece for that is exactly what came to mind when I watched this yesterday.
Whoa, is this the one you said was worth waiting for….back around the time of Halloween?
It’s going straight to my media server & a Blu-Ray disk.
“Chicago Mobster” all “conspiracies” aside, probably closer to the truth than anything presented here. Interesting a lot of the legal defence offered resembled the defence offered in child molestation cases’ etc, damage to 3rd parties’ so on. In Bruers’ defence , i would say he would have be dead with in nano seconds’ apon offering anything other than the evidence he offered…jus saying… Fantastic doco’ anyway. Titus and Black brilliant men.
That was a brilliant presentation. Kudos to Mr. Titus. The depressing side of it is that there seems to be nothing that can be done to stop this financial criminals.
Good documentary. The “kingdom of Crime” and the decline of the west from another perspective. My latest piece:
Goldman Sachs probed in alleged Treasury rigging
Washington’s probe into the alleged rigging of the $13 trillion US Treasurys market by Wall Street banks has narrowed its focus to a handful of firms — including Goldman Sachs, The Post has learned.
In addition, European authorities have opened up their own investigation into possible Treasurys bid-rigging, sources said.
Investigators in the fraud division of the Justice Department have obtained chats and e-mails from Goldman that appear to implicate the company in manipulating the price of Treasury bonds, according to two sources familiar with the investigation.
Those chats and e-mails are being analyzed to determine if traders at other banks could be involved with any possible bid-rigging of US government debt, those two people said.
The identities of any traders in investigators’ cross-hairs couldn’t be learned.
Goldman is said to be cooperating with the probe, one person said.
Hillary’s Goldman handcuffs,,,Hillary Clinton is looking into it…Don’t worry goldman….
