A Video Summary Of America's Own Economic Tsunami

Tyler Durden's picture

CSL Financial presents a comprehensive look at the last century in US history (98 years to be precise, since the foundation of the Federal Reserve in 1913), highlighting the key events, and critical outcomes, explaining in simple terms how while Japan may have encountered an actual tsunami earlier today, the metaphoric version that has afflicted America is far more dangerous and will have far worse consequences for America's 300+ million citizens.

43,5 million people on food stamps.

Let's do some math

last week's printing - 80 billion

equals 40-ish million weekly sallaries.

so 15% of the polpulation live on "printed" money???

big inflation, no?

Is it ironic, hypocritical and downright fishy for a these libertarian videographers (the same guys from NIA and a dozen other affiliate sites) to create an overly-sensational video supposedly warning everyone of impending financial doom, and then encourage you to sign up for their penny-stock pumping mailing list?

Libertarians are so weird.  They hate everyone except coin dealers, NRA members and - oddly - penny stock pumpers.

It is a very good thing that you are merely jousting with strawmen and not anyone actually real, as the blunted lance of your dull intelligence would most certainly not be up to the task.

I have found it nearly impossible to have an extended coherent debate with a typical libertarian doomer goon, and that is why I speak mostly in generalities these days. The neural activity (or lack thereof) in a libertarian is generally confined to the lower brain stem - the first rung of neural evolution, where reptilian instincts of survival and paranoia are far more prevalent than more advanced cognitive abilities like reason, compassion and critical thinking. If you actually measure the slope of a libertarian forehead, you will find it to be 4 or 5 standard deviations away from most of society (somewhat like a cat) - this is due to a rather notable absence of the frontal lobe.     

If the subject matter isn't about shiny coins, guns, bunkers, hatred of all socioeconomic classes or apocalyptic cartoons, I have found any discussion with a libertarian quickly spirals into the ditch. At one time, I had thought the use of colorful visuals/charts and simple cartoons would help communicate with a libertarian, but Tyler has repeatedly denied me these advanced posting privileges. 


....that is why I'm left with generalities.  It's just easier.

You probably find it hard to have a conversation with anyone considering you spend most of your time calling people names, criticizing and insulting them.  I suppose in your circle of Liberal Progressives friends this is an acceptable practice.  One only has to look at your leadership, the ex-President of NPR, to garner an understanding of why you feel it is an acceptable practice..  It's understandable you would want to lash out at, something you just can't wrap your mind around, and at that feeling deep down inside your soul that keeps telling you, you helped bring about the economic decline of America.  It's ok, we don't blame you. We know your dysfunctional Liberal Progressive educational system has provided only garbage for your young mind to be nourished upon.  Just sit back, don't get angry and enjoy the ride down to the bottom.  We will wave and blow kisses at you as we ride to the top.

oh yes, and a little advice..  Maybe you want to hedge your bets in real life and befriend a Libratarian.  Just incase we aren't as crazy as you want us to seem.  He/She might, just might, be nicer then you are, and allow you share in their stockpile of craziness when a disaster, any disaster, happens.

Well Mark, if so called intelligent thinking is what got us to the brink of social retardation you can have it.

So, instead of actually debated the points in the video you attack the creator. What part of the brain did that reaction of yours come from?

People like you are quick to categorize and label others as to deter them from objectivity and give them comfort in the consensus you provide..

Here you go Mark; I will make you famous in your Troll Society.. You can coin the label "Stemmers" and start using it on us..  See how nice we Libertarians are?

Congratulations for appointing yourself a deep thinking genius and all libertarians knuckle dragging simpletons. Let's see how you deal with this 'simpleton' statement:

Everything Government touches turns to crap

As you're pro-Govt and you've 300 countries to choose from, 100 Depts in every Govt and the past 300 years of human history to work with, give me one instance where the above statement is not an absolute truth. Easy peasy for a man of your (self anointed) intellect right?

gaoptimize's picture

You can use any technique you want to avoid confronting the economic math leading to collapse.  I am a libertarian doomer, as you call me, but prefer to be thought of as a common sense Constitutional conservative.  I'll match my intellectual credentials and technical output above 99% of the population.  The greater geniuses of the economic and political elite have demonstrably created an unsustainable system to concentrate wealth for themselves.  The big Government left has provided them the institutions and tools to accomplish this.  You are an enabling tool.

Yup, your way is much easier.  Being right is HA~ARD!

You've been a member for more than a year, but I've never seen you post before.  You just pop out of no-where to randomly insult a group of people for no apparent reason?  

Contribute something worthwhile, and quit with the stereotyping.

Sure thing mcgoldrick  -how can these neanderthals question the brilliant genus of Bernanke, Greenspann , not to mention the Goldman boys (Rubin, paulsen , etc.) who are doing God's work.  Those of us among the enlightened know full well that are are on our way to a lasting recovery - and that QE2, QE3, QE4 and maybe  a few other QEs are all we need. You  can't eat gold. As Cheney told us  -deficits don't matter. We need more bailouts -the best and the brightest at Goldman sachs know better than we as to how to spend our money. Don't bet against America. If the recovery stalls, we'll just invade another one of those f*cking A-rab countries (you know -to bring them democracy) Those boots you hear are the sound of freedom marching - they hate us because we are free. If all else fails, we can always amend the Constitution to to grant everyone the constitutional right to a nice home, a reasonable pension and quality healthcare. The jobs this will create will solve all our problems for decades to come. We are a shining city on a hill with a thousand points of light to guide us. Let's mandate that the malls remain open 24 hours a day. Give every unemployed college grad a government guaranteed credit card from BA or JPM with a $25,000 credit limit. the only thing stopping us are the goldbugs and doomsdayers with all their negativity. I'm heading out to the mall. If you love america, you'll join me. God bless AmeriKa.

I appreciate what they have to say...I just wish they would get different guys (sexy gals...please?) to do the voiceovers.  All the orgs you listed and this one use the same guy.  Is there only one nasally sounding libertarian among us?  Let's do our part to help more voiceover actors go from being unemployed to underemployed.

Did i hear this stat correctly in the past few days...the top 450 American individual's net worth is equal to the bottom 150 million American's people's net worth.

Aren't there only about 340 million Americans?

There are many more if you count all those voting.

I think it was the top 400 (Forbes 400) have wealth nearly equal to the bottom 50%, or 155 million.

Is the Fed a paper tiger? Was electronic banking created so we wouldn't have to clear cut all our forests to create fiat?

DavidPierre's picture

But whatever...!

Just never bother to name the Criminal Family NAMES!

The identities of the shareholders of the Mafia front companies which creates and controls the American money supply is, as is only reasonable...

Kept secret from the American public.!!!

And, just as reasonably, much of the Fed's financial activity is legally exempt from scutiny or audit by the General Accounting Office (GAO).

After all, what right do ordinary Americans have to know anything about the private company which issues all U.S. money and, for all practical purposes, controls the U.S. economy.
The original shareholders of the Federal Reserve company were the...

Rothschilds' bank in London,

Lazard Brothers' bank of Paris,

Israel Moses Seif Bank of Italy, 

Warburg Bank of Hamburg, London and Amsterdam,

Lehman Brothers Bank of New York,

Kuhn Loeb Bank of New York, 

Rockefellers’ Chase Bank of New York 

Goldman Sachs Bank of New York.

Btw, the full quote of Papa Rothschild is

"Permit me to issue and control the money of a nation, and I care not who makes its laws, for I shall rule."

Papa Rothschild... hard to keep up with the open admissions of this guy... Don of the Rothschild Mafia Family.

And he had 19 magic elves working overtime in his NYC workshop.


The Wall Street Crash is the opening act in the Great Depression, the latest production of the boys in the back room who own the private company operating under the deceptive name of the Federal Reserve.

The Federal Reserve was supposedly created to prevent such things as the Wall Street Crash happening. But, from 1921 to 1929, the Fed dramatically increases the U.S. money supply, fueling massive speculation.

Throughout the 1920s, Americans with modest income and savings are lured into the stock market in large numbers by the ruling class including the Rockefellers, the Morgans and the Dillons.

People who know nothing of the true forces and limitless skulduggery behind financial markets and cannot afford to lose the money they invest are persuaded to pay artificially inflated prices for hundreds of millions of shares.

Suckers are lured into the market with the trick of buying on margin.

 A purchaser puts down 10% of the value of the shares being bought and then counts on the continuing inflation of share prices to make a profit.

It's like getting something for nothing.

 With millions of suckers lured into the market, share prices are driven up and, for a while, John Q. Sucker, looks like he is coming out ahead.

However, that is not the nature of the financial world. In fact, the Rockefellers, the Morgans, the Dillons and their minions, (the Bush crime family) are fleecing ordinary Americans of hundreds of millions of dollars in an orgy of financial scams many of which will be later uncovered in the long-suppressed Pecora Hearings.

 Massive manipulation and speculation drives share prices to unsupportable levels.

A few months before the Crash, word has it that the Rockefellers, Joe Kennedy and all the other scam artists quietly exit the market, selling when the artificially inflated prices are sky high.

 On October 24th, the big banks, owned by the same criminal co-conspirators, call the loans to the suckers. Inevitably, a selling panic ensues and the whole house of cards collapses.

Gee, what a surprise.

But... This is not History only just another Conspiracy Theory... don't fret about it.

Benjamin Franklin's warning to the Constitutional Convention in 1789 concerning the Jews

"I fully agree with General Washington, that we must protect this young nation from an insidious influence and impenetration. The menace, gentlemen, is the Jews. In whatever country Jews have settled in any great numbers, they have lowered its moral tone; depreciated its commercial integrity; have segregated themselves and have not been assimilated; have sneered at and tried to undermine the Christian religion upon which that nation is founded by objecting to its restrictions; have built up a state within a state; and when opposed have tried to strangle that country to death financially, as in the case of Spain and Portugal........

"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered...I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies... The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.

How can someone " Junk" Benjamin Franklin's warning concerning the Jews that has been called a marvel of prophecy.

NrYC's picture

Because it was proven to have been a forgery. He never said it. Spain threw them out - did that lead to an era of prosperity? Oh, right, their empire crumbled anyway. Full disclosure, I am a gentile.

1223pm's picture

According to their awn account, they are kicked out of the country that gave them refuge more than 200 times. I read they were expelled from Spain, in 612 C.E. Once again they were tried to stop what they were doing in 681 C.E. but no success and than in 1063 C.E. they were massacred for the same reason they did in Germany and now what they are doing with US economy through FED.

See the following link. This is a Jewish site.
