dang, The Who nailed the lyrics with this one:

We'll be fighting in the streets
With our children at our feet
And the morals that they worship will be gone
And the men who spurred us on
Sit in judgment of all wrong
They decide and the shotgun sings the song

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get FULD again

The change, it had to come
We knew it all along
We were liberated from the fold, that's all
And the world looks just the same
And history ain't changed
Cause the banners, they are flown in the next war

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get FULD again

I would NEVER let a guy named "DICK" be the boss.  Isn't that like a guy standing 5'4" being the boss.  I mean this guy has been called a "dic" his whole life. What the fuck do you expect?  Of course he's gonna be a dick, look at Nixon.

I've done my definitive piece on WTC.

The statue of liberty in the rubble. I did this before there was any occupy movement and wearing Fawkes masks became in vogue...



Fuld was the CEO of Lehman, the domino that sent the whole shebang crashing. The people on this site know very well who he is. He is no Ned Kelly that is for sure.

I think that image was real. But I read the facial expressions based upon a different narrative. The one that says they dragged him tooth and nail against his own decision paralysis...exhaustion.

The people who do digital image forensics rely heavily on reading the code signatures of the image as opposed to what the image looks like.

I was reading this on a tablet, and when scrolling up, Fuld's eyes look down at you. (The 'Rules are for fools' picture)

Creepy as hell. Much less noticeable on a regular computer, but really, really pronounced on a tablet.

Soulless eyes. Like looking into something not of this earth. Very unsettling.


The movie clip was excellent, btw.

Great work, Bill. One of your best.

Time capsule worthy

williambanzai7's picture

When I did it that is really what I was thinking. I just made a list o f everything that happened. I was just thinking, this is all nuts. And as I said, it preceded the Fawkes mask mania by a year.

That was disturbing WB7. Now I have to go and have a cigarette and I don't even smoke. Can you please warn us next time you burst into film? I need to prepare myself.

Setarcos's picture

I sometimes try to suggest directions you might not want to go in, e.g. WTC7, and I sometimes fail to mention your skill with what you do do.  Sorry.

And sorry again if you have already done something about the photo image of Obomber and the rest supposedly watching 'live footage' of Osama bin Laden being killed.

To my unpracticed eye it is "photo-shopped".  What do you think?

BTW: who is/was Richard Fuld?  I doubt that most Usans have ever heard him, let alone billions around the world.

I daresay that far more people know about Ned Kelly than Richard Fuld

wb7 and zh had last year like o'doyle this year it changes to "one of the most interesting blogs in the world."

Can you believe that pic of Fuld? Look at it. That is one scary SOB. Those eyes and face are right out of a vintage version of Phantom of the Opera. Who in their right mind lets someone who looks like this manage their money?

Dick Fuld . . . whatever happened to him?


Wikipedia: "In May 2010, Fuld was registered by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) as employed by Legend Securities, a securities brokerage and investment banking firm in New York."

I gotta open me an account with Legend, first thing on Monday morning! Clearly an outfit that recognizes a class act when they see it.


Wikipedia again: "Fuld's first career as an Air Force pilot came to an end when he got into a fistfight with a commanding officer. He was said to have been defending a young cadet who was being taunted by the senior officer." 


He actually sounds alright there. I'm all in favor of commanding officers being punched in the face in such circumstances. You have to wonder: if he himself had been regularly punched in the face while CEO at Lehman, and offered some friendly advice at the same time, might things have turned out differently?


Not that I advocate violence, you understand.

williambanzai7's picture

I have heard first hand accounts of what consummate assholes all of the top Lehman executives were. All the gossip written about their wives shoe collections, their private helicopters and jets etc is all true. Much has been written.

Downtoolong's picture

Gutter mols, tramps with money, like what the groupies who hang around the commodities exchanges looking for action hope to become one day. Sick and sad.

Not surprising at all is it. And what was it Dimon said: if our regulators didn't catch it how could we?

What a fucking joke.

Fuld makes Hitler look like Mr. Smilely...........

williambanzai7's picture

The difference between Fuld and Hitler is Hitler was a master of crowd interaction. Fuld is a social misfit. Many of these CEOs suffer the same weakness. They have speech coaches and read all the How to Speak in Public books. If you look at the business self improvement section of the bookstore, it is huge and it is geared for CEO wannabes. Hilarious, they have a natural talent for fucking people but they are socially inept.

The difference between Fuld and Hitler is Hitler was a master of crowd interaction!   Let me enlighten you! Auschwitz

  I'm not Jewish, by the way!

I've been to see the camps several times. Something everyone should do if they can at least once.

williambanzai7's picture

Hitler is a bad example. Too much baggage.

Let's just say Fuld never garnered the adoration of his minions and never learned how. The best he ever got was that guy's a mean mother fucker at the trading desk. In his Later years he hid up in the C Suite.

Weeellll, just goes to show ya, not all psychopaths are socially adept.

My Final Rant:

The Real Deal:  Final Advisory

The natural criminal evolution is from the shell company to the shell country --- and once the shell country has been established, it's all down hill from there.

With the recent notification from Bloomberg News that China will now be directly accessing -- or communicating -- with the US Treasury, the final signal has been transmitted.

Over the preceding years, major operations have been relocated to China and Dubai, concurrent with the major expenditures in infrastructure there.

Hence, little or no real investment of any sort in the USA --- infrastructure or otherwise.

Their plan proceeds unabated with the election of either of Wall Street's two preferred candidates, Obama or Romney.

This is why the upcoming presidential election is paramount to the future survival of the USA; either Dr. Jill Stein is elected in 2012, with a move back towards the public good, the public welfare, the public commons, or the majority of the citizenry can kiss any real future good-bye!

The direct connection between the US Treasury Department and China, and the finalization of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, cements the economic web of domination.

This 2012 election will be America's last hope --- the citizenry's last chance.

Will it once again be the treason of the people, following the consumer dictates of the bank/oil cartel -- or will the people finally and fully awaken?

Dr. Jill Stein in 2012 ---- or else!

(Why is the obvious so difficult for so many?

The audit records of the DoD's missing $2.3 trillion and those responsible for said audit, the DIA's Financial Management staff --- destroyed on 9/11/01!

The records of those companies under SEC investigation -- in which those missing DoD monies were transferred through -- stored in WTC Building 7 --- destroyed on 9/11/01!

Those offshore transfer points of the missing monies (Marsh, Cantor Fitzgerald's TradeSpark and Deutsche Bank's comm. center) -- located at the impact points in the two WTC towers --- destroyed on 9/11/01!

With $2 trillion moved to offshore hedge funds and other sites.

Why is this so cumbersome for so many to grasp?)

little piece 'o history: Dick Cheney's company had the job of abating the asbestos and dealing with the white elephant towers... kismet.

Pure Evil's picture

Well, actually, Hitler was as much a social misfit as Fuld and needed training in speaking before crowds.

He learned most of what he knows about public speaking and the use of exaggerated gestures from Dietrich Eckhart.

Hitler was obssessed with having wide nostrils which he suspected were of jewish origin. There were rumors of his father being the product of a german/jewish tryst.

He grew up in an age where hating jews was taken for granted and was himself enmeshed in the very ideology of antisemitisim.

So, there you go, one messed up fucker that not only hated jews but hated himself because he thought he was part jewish.

I think ole Hitler has one up on Dickie Fuld.

hangemhigh77's picture

The main difference between Hitler and Fuld is Hitler had a moustache.

Should get some sparks out of next week's Bilderberg.

At least we can be assured that Fuld's personality will torture him for as long as he lives.

williambanzai7's picture

It's almost time for....Bilderberg Squares!

WTFx10's picture

its worth repeating

The world somehow decided that they needed a middle man to manage the nations of the world currency, money the fucking thing we as humans in this time of our existence use for exchange. We know monopolies are bad but the world decides (not at all the same time of course)to have a group of individuals we will call them Vinnie & Pauly and their related friends to have SOLE control of that fucking thing everyone has decided this is what we will use for exchange. In effect, creating a MONOPOLY over the world’s money supply. 

Then to make sure they have the tools to control that thing we also give them the POWER to create it and LOAN it to us so they can turn a PROFIT out of something they can create and already control? They pass laws forcing us to use that controlled money to make sure there is no competition for Vinnie & Paulie. So what keeps the world or Nations from destroying this Monopoly?

Nations go to WAR all the time against other Nations. Why has no group of Nations decide to go to War against a Private corporation that acts as a middle man skimming off the wealth of Nations?

Why does NO NATION ,COUNTRY, OUTPOST have the RIGHT to AUDIT Vinnie and Paulies Operation?

Who protects this Cartel, business, corporation, clearing house, middle men that Vinnie, Pauly and their relatives have created and convinced the world that it is the BEST system for the planet?

If you want to make this into reality just replaced Vinnie & Pauly with Rothschild & Rockefeller

Either way, I'm good with it.

great stuff as always WB7.


Can I ask what photo editing software you use?

williambanzai7's picture

I use Photoshop CS5' simply because I learned how to use it with my photography. It's the same Photoshop that comes in a simplified version called Elements when you buy a camera.

I also use various iPad Apps for different things.

skepticCarl's picture

It has taken me 2 years to find the "auto enhance" feature on photoshop elements, and another year to learn to use the layers.  To produce the amazing results of texture, color, detail, etc. with such a relatively elementary tool is a tribute to your master craftsmanship.  Your imaginative creations are the work of genius.

williambanzai7's picture

To be accurate I am using CS5' but the features I use most are all on elements. I don't use special brushes and plugins etc.

My photo processing technique is what helps me make the image mashes more realistic. I spend time doing tone blends, shading etc.

veyron's picture

It's called 'photoshop' 

lasvegaspersona's picture

very similar to the program some dufus at the Whitehouse used to forge a birth certificate for Obama....the idiot left out one step...he forgot to print it and THEN copy it before scaning it for release...and that one teenie error reveals that the Obama birth certifcate is a remember kids, learn to use the process BEFORE you engage in felony law poor sherriff Joe Arpaio has all he needs to show that someone in the Whitehouse is a forger....and I'm NOT a birther damn it...just a curious PhotoShop user...just saynin...just for the record...not a birther dang it...just observant...

Havana White's picture

Observant, not very, lasvegaspersona.  The birthers' "layers" try was shot down by experts far and wide, beyond further argument.  Search, including "layers" or "photoshop" -- you'll find this easily.

williambanzai7's picture

Yes, that bith certificate is a real piece of work.
