How The Clintons Enabled The 2008 Economic Crisis And Financial Coup d'Etat

Tyler Durden's picture

Submitted by Jesse via Jesse's Cafe Americain blog,

"The crash has laid bare many unpleasant truths about the United States. One of the most alarming, says a former chief economist of the International Monetary Fund, is that the finance industry has effectively captured our government—a state of affairs that more typically describes emerging markets, and is at the center of many emerging-market crises.


If the IMF’s staff could speak freely about the U.S., it would tell us what it tells all countries in this situation: recovery will fail unless we break the financial oligarchy that is blocking essential reform. And if we are to prevent a true depression, we’re running out of time."

- Simon Johnson, The Quiet Coup


“A true opium of the people is a belief in nothingness after death - the huge solace of thinking that for our betrayals, greed, cowardice, and even murders that we are not going to be judged.”

- Czes?aw Mi?osz

As economist Simon Johnson put it so aptly, there was a 'financial coup d'etat' in the States. It was the result of a longer term and well-funded effort as documented by PBS Frontline and others.


People forget all too quickly what has happened, even things that happened less than twenty years ago. Perhaps it is easily forgotten because there are so few counterexamples of honesty and decency these days in government and business to hold up in comparison. The UK and Canada are following in lockstep, as well as the central government for Europe in Brussels.

The Clintons, along with a large group of Republican Congressmen and compliant Democrats, put a 'for sale' sign not only on the Lincoln bedroom as you may recall, but on the rest of the White House and the Capitol, and indeed, the well being of the people of the United States.

They certainly did not do it alone, as it was a bipartisan effort to overturn the protections established in the darker days of the Great Depression. But the money was good, and it was there for the taking, and with it the enormous power to threaten or reward those around them.

And it became the thing to do in Washington and New York, to partner up with big money to take the public for a wild ride, as we have not seen since the beginning of the last century.  Once again capitalism was unfettered, and became the rawest, the worst kind of short sighted and self-dealing 'capitalism' that is more corrosive looting than productive asset allocating.  And so the New York - Washington metroplex enthusiastically engaged in a program of fabulous gains for themselves, and longer term pain for the country.

I do not have to read Robert Scheer's account to understand it;  I saw this happening with my own eyes, almost in slow motion, as one might watch the events leading up to a train wreck.  The actions of the participants were deliberate, and focused solely on amassing enormous fortunes for themselves and their friends, and damn the people and the consequences.

What the Clintons did was not to invent soft graft of political contributions and gratuities, sinecure positions after public office, and ridiculously generous payment for speeches and appearances.  No, what they did was take what had been reviled as the worst of politics in craven service to big corporate interests, which had been largely but not exclusively the hallmark of their political opponents who were well established as servants to the corporate interests, and make it not only acceptable for establishment liberals, but downright fashionable.

Why would the Clintons, that wonderfully privileged and intelligent couple, do such a coarse and craven thing?  One might think of about $130 million reasons offhand.  Is anything just that simple?  And what would you do if you were offered $130 million in easy money for you and your family to make a few key decisions, to look the other way at times, while having no fear of punishment, with all your many sins forgotten, excused, and ignored by a compliant press?

Oh yes, you are an angel and would of course say no, even if the corruption was unrolled slowly, one step at a time.  But what do you think that the fellow next to you would do?   The ones who cut people off in traffic, makes the rules for themselves, wishing to have their own way, to have power and a place at the highest table?

Is this a system likely to be honest, just, and sustainable?  Is it designed for fairness and rewarding the best and most productive behaviour?

And like the utopian efficient market hypothesis, we are expected to believe that the powerful men of Big Money are just men of civic virtue who will give millions upon millions of dollars to politicians and expect nothing but fairness and objectivity in return, even if it is to their own disadvantage as required by justice.

No wonder so many politicians have become little more than marketing projects for Big Money, like brands of toothpaste and soft drinks.  Pick any flavor that you wish, but despite the appearances of difference, they are all owned by just four or five big corporate interests, as is the mainstream media.  Which by the way was enabled by the Clintons overturning the Fairness Doctrine.

A number of the old hands of politics see where this is heading, and have already taken the money and run, some to hide in their studies, to try and create a new legacy for themselves, and others to move to K Street as lobbyists and get filthier rich while it lasts.

But the problem still remains, Once thoroughly corrupted, a system finds it hard to correct itself, especially if the consequences for big rewards are more of an inconvenience than punishment, if there are any serious drawbacks at all. 

The American people seem to be attempting to rouse themselves, to use their right of suffrage to bring about the change, the necessary reform, that has eluded them for quite some time.  Let us hope that this effort will not be squashed in the manner of other protests, such as Occupy Wall Street, have been through almost ruthless and coordinated nationwide public relations campaigns and even violence from the government and the media.

The ‘Clinton Bubble’: How Clinton Democrats Fostered the 2008 Economic Crisis

By Robert Scheer


Since the collapse happened on the watch of President George W. Bush at the end of two full terms in office, many in the Democratic Party were only too eager to blame his administration. Yet while Bush did nothing to remedy the problem, and his response was to simply reward the culprits, the roots of this disaster go back much further, to the free-market propaganda of the Reagan years and, most damagingly, to the bipartisan deregulation of the banking industry undertaken with the full support of “liberal” President Clinton. Yes, Clinton. And if this debacle needs a name, it should most properly be called “the Clinton bubble,” as difficult as it may be to accept for those of us who voted for him.


Clinton, being a smart person and an astute politician, did not use old ideological arguments to do away with New Deal restrictions on the banking system, which had been in place ever since the Great Depression threatened the survival of capitalism. His were the words of technocrats, arguing that modern technology, globalization, and the increased sophistication of traders meant the old concerns and restrictions were outdated. By “modernizing” the economy, so the promise went, we would free powerful creative energies and create new wealth for a broad spectrum of Americans—not to mention boosting the Democratic Party enormously, both politically and financially.


And it worked: Traditional banks freed by the dissolution of New Deal regulations became much more aggressive in investing deposits, snapping up financial services companies in a binge of acquisitions. These giant conglomerates then bet long on a broad and limitless expansion of the economy, making credit easy and driving up the stock and real estate markets to unseen heights. Increasingly complicated yet wildly profitable securities—especially so-called over-the-counter derivatives (OTC), which, as their name suggests, are financial instruments derived from other assets or products—proved irresistible to global investors, even though few really understood what they were buying. Those transactions in suspect derivatives were negotiated in markets that had been freed from the obligations of government regulation and would grow in the year 2009 to more than $600 trillion...


Clinton betrayed the wisdom of Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s New Deal reforms that capitalism needed to be saved from its own excess in order to survive, that the free market would remain free only if it was properly regulated in the public interest. The great and terrible irony of capitalism is that if left unfettered, it inexorably engineers its own demise, through either revolution or economic collapse. The guardians of capitalism’s survival are thus not the self-proclaimed free-marketers, who, in defiance of the pragmatic Adam Smith himself, want to chop away at all government restraints on corporate actions, but rather liberals, at least those in the mode of FDR, who seek to harness its awesome power while keeping its workings palatable to a civilized and progressive society.


Government regulation of the market economy arose during the New Deal out of a desire to save capitalism rather than destroy it. Whether it was child labor in dark coal mines, the exploitation of racially segregated human beings to pick cotton, or the unfathomable devastation of the Great Depression, the brutal creativity of the pure profit motive has always posed a stark challenge to our belief that we are moral creatures. The modern bureaucratic governments of the developed world were built, unconsciously, as a bulwark, something big enough to occasionally stand up to the power of uncontrolled market forces...

The damage done during the Clinton admin has been well documented and well known for many years.

I guess it's a god thing that some people are beginning to talk about it. It is difficult to understnad how people can be so blindly loyal to the Clintons while they grovel for a paycheck.

Ignorance is bliss.

The roots of the disaster go back to the 1913 creation of the Federal Reserve and debt-based flexible money.

Greenspan inserted to blow the bubbles at the Fed, Rubin as Treasury Secretary working to rig the commodities market, and rigging of the gold price with unallocated paper gold trading in London at the LBMA were the last pieces of the puzzle.

Sure the Clintons as grifters look bad and Rubin was enabled by Clinton  himself, however there's a lot longer timeline to it than the last couple of decades.

and capitalism, which represents trade betweeen individuals, does not engineer its own demise.

When you have central planning manipulation, especially by corrupt interests, then the otherwise stable system collapses.

Many on ZH know what you write of, but the ones who should know, don't want to know.  That

was the secret and the power Clinton had and has now.  Remember it was repealed at Christmas just before break, that was bad enough but add that most Politians DO NOT even read a bill but are told to vote for it...makes us a lazy sell out fool.  Always beware of what is passed at full recovery is now limited to ONE Social Security number and NOT an account, not matter how many you have!

That limit is 250,000.  Bet few know that.


Who in their right mind would want to be President now....big question.  Do we actually have two altruistic candidates and the rest opportunists?

How Do So Few People Have So Much Power?


Marriner Eccles was the Governor of the Federal Reserve Sys- tem in 1941. On September 30 of that year, Eccles was asked to give testimony before the House Committee on Banking and Currency. The purpose of the hearing was to obtain information regarding the role of the Federal Reserve in creating conditions that led to the de- pression of the 1930s. Congressman Wright Patman, who was Chairman of that committee, asked how the Fed got the money to purchase two billion dollars worth of government bonds in 1933. This is the exchange that followed.


ECCLES: We created it.

PATMAN: Out of what?

ECCLES: Out of the right to issue credit money.

PATMAN: And there is nothing behind it, is there, except our government's credit?

ECCLES: That is what our money system is. If there were no debts in our money system, there wouldn't be any money.


It must be realized that, while money may represent an asset to selected individuals, when it is considered as an aggregate of the total money supply, it is not an asset at all. A man who borrows $1,000 may think that he has increased his financial position by that amount but he has not. His $1,000 cash asset is offset by his $1,000 loan liability, and his net position is zero. Bank accounts are exactly the same on a larger scale. Add up all the bank accounts in the nation, and it would be easy to assume that all that money repre- sents a gigantic pool of assets which support the economy. Yet, every bit of this money is owed by someone. Some will owe nothing. Others will owe many times what they possess. All added together, the national balance is zero. What we think is money is but a grand illusion. The reality is debt.


Robert Hemphill was the Credit Manager of the Federal Reserve Bank in Atlanta. In the foreword to a book by Irving Fisher, entitled 100% Money, Hemphill said this: If all the bank loans were paid, no one could have a bank deposit, and there would not be a dollar of coin or currency in circulation. This is a staggering thought. We are completely dependent on the commercial banks. Someone has to borrow every dollar we have in circulation, cash, or credit. If the banks create ample synthetic money we are prosperous; if not, we starve. We are absolutely without a permanent money system. When one gets a complete grasp of the picture, the tragic absurdity of our hopeless situation is almost incredible — but there it is.  With the knowledge that money in America is based on debt, it should not come as a surprise to learn that the Federal Reserve System is not the least interested in seeing a reduction in debt in this country, regardless of public utterances to the contrary.


Here is the bottom line from the System's own publications. The Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia says: "A large and growing number of analysts, on the other hand, now regard the national debt as something useful, if not an actual blessing.... [They believe] the national debt need not be reduced at all."  The Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago adds: "Debt — public and private — is here to stay. It plays an essential role in economic processes.. .. What is required is not the abolition of debt, but its prudent use and intelligent management."

Amazing just how very few people understand this simple fact. Some time, just for kicks, hold up an FRN (dollar bill) to a friend or family member and ask them to tell you what the thing is, see if they can describe what it really is...or is not.

No sense in telling us all these things. "What difference does it make, anyway?" 

Absolutely,none.  Nothing will come of this - ever. Those who were going to vote for Hillary are still going to do so. The so-called electoral college and the smarmy primary system ensure that those who want to manipulate the system to their own ends, can do so easily.

It was on July 20, 1993 when Vince Foster, President Bill Clinton’s childhood friend and Hillary Clinton’s closest White House confidante, was found dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound in the head in Fort Marcy Park, Virginia. Before a preliminary investigation began, Americans were told by White House officials and President Clinton that Vince Foster committed suicide in Fort Marcy Park, nobody saw it coming, and it would remain a “mystery”—the cohesive strategy crafted in Hillary’s White House counsel’s office. Clinton Press Secretary Dee Dee Myers even stated: “the Park Service Police is the only agency that’s investigating [Vince Foster’s death], and that the objective of their search is simply to determine that it was a suicide.”

The fix was in. The objective of the investigation into Vince Foster’s death, the highest ranking government official’s death since President John Kennedy was assassinated, was “simply to determine that it was a suicide [emphasis mine].” The conclusion was predetermined. The cohesive strategy stuck as “truth” and they got away with it. Homicide, foul play, the possibility of blackmail, a potential risk to America’s national security, was never investigated. No need for the Clinton White House to cooperate with investigators or the media. They didn’t. Case closed. Move on….

How about Dem superdelegates?

Bernie Sanders lost by a hair in Iowa and won by a landslide in New Hampshire. Yet Hillary Clinton has amassed an enormous 350-delegate advantage over the Vermont senator after just two states.

Outraged by that disconnect – which is fueled by Clinton’s huge advantage with Democratic superdelegates, who are not bound by voting results – Sanders supporters are fighting back.

What's hilarious and sad is the lose of definition of words. Capitalism and free markets are synonymous with that of individuals engaging in their daily activities as it relates to owning and operating a business.

Once government and central banking in tandum with large banks are involved in this process it ceases to be a free market let alone capitalism.

This is lost on so many people yet capitalism and free markets get blamed for it.

Such idiocracy!!!

For the record I tried.

Oldwood's picture

The false security that government claims to provide masks the true risk that we all need to be able to recognize for our own protection. We have allowed government to assume the role as our protector as well as the responsibility to keep us aware of risk. What we have is corruption at the highest levels that abuses our trust by stealing from us and creating massive risk to our existence while telling us not to be alarmed and simultaneously hyping false or minimal threats as our primary concern.

The government constantly implies it is our freedoms that pose the greatest this dumb fuck telling us that capitalism is our problem and liberals are our only protection.


Freedom is a threat and tyranny is our only choice.

If we only had MOAR regulations...

Our only REAL choice is their departure. They have created the worlds greatest calamity with government more powerful, more invasive, more controlling than ever in history....and it is capitalism's fault.

Othe flip side, the answer to every problem you can name is more money and control. More police and policing. Even government failures are blamed on insufficient money and power.

Yes, Charles Offdenson!

"For the record I tried," for a few decades, and I continue to keep trying, although, I have been more and more forced to face the facts that it is politically impossible to have any relatively rational public discussions regarding these topics.

As some comments above already pointed out:

"Marriner Eccles was the Governor of the Federal Reserve System in 1941. On September 30 of that year, Eccles was asked to give testimony before the House Committee on Banking and Currency. The purpose of the hearing was to obtain information regarding the role of the Federal Reserve in creating conditions that led to the depression of the 1930s. Congressman Wright Patman, who was Chairman of that committee, asked how the Fed got the money to purchase two billion dollars worth of government bonds in 1933. This is the exchange that followed.

ECCLES: We created it.

PATMAN: Out of what?

ECCLES: Out of the right to issue credit money.

PATMAN: And there is nothing behind it, is there, except our government's credit?

ECCLES: That is what our money system is. If there were no debts in our money system, there wouldn't be any money."

"Amazing just how very few people understand this simple fact."

Similarly, several previous comments correctly pointed out that 1913 was one of the most significant milestones of the reestablishment of the debt slavery systems by the international bankers in the USA, since it was the governments' abilities to enforce payment of taxes in the legal tender deemed to be that fiat currency created out of nothing as debts by privately controlled banks that make those kinds of frauds become the extraordinary privilege of the legalized counterfeiting of the public "money" supply.

Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars

"Energy is recognized as the key to all activity on earth. Natural science is the study of the sources and control of natural energy, and social science, theoretically expressed as economics, is the study of the sources and control of social energy. Both are bookkeeping systems: mathematics. Therefore, mathematics is the primary energy science. And the bookkeeper can be king if the public can be kept ignorant of the methodology of the bookkeeping. ... In this structure, credit, presented as a pure element called "currency," has the appearance of capital, but is in effect negative capital. Hence, it has the appearance of service, but is in fact, indebtedness or debt. ... if balanced in no other way, will be balanced by the negation of population (war, genocide)... They must eventually resort to war to balance the account, because war ultimately is merely the act of destroying the creditor ... War is therefore the balancing of the system by killing the true creditors (the public ...)"



THAT annihilates "capitalism"

and destroys "free markets."





Charles Offdensen was CORRECT that:

Capitalism and free markets are synonymous with that of individuals engaging in their daily activities as it relates to owning and operating a business. Once government and central banking in tandem with large banks are involved in this process it ceases to be a free market let alone capitalism. This is lost on so many people yet capitalism and free markets get blamed for it.

(AND, on the flip side, the same thing goes for blaming "socialism" or "communism" etc. ...)

"Free market capitalism" may be perceived as most closely matching the overall ways that there are dynamic equilibria between different systems of organized lies operating robberies, EXCEPT that, to attempt to be more complete and consistent, one must add the "free market in murder," which was the history of warfare, and the "free market in fraud," which was the history of the vicious spirals of political funding.

There was no beginning to Neolithic Civilization being based on backing up lies with violence, that became more sophisticated systems of legalized lies, backed by legalized violence, whose most important manifestation became that public governments ENFORCE FRAUDS by private banks. Pretty well ALL public discussions of politics are "debates" between different groups of professional liars and immaculate hypocrites. Pretty ALL "isms" are their bullshit.

The "credits" issued by private banks, as frauds enforced by public governments, are due to civilization operating according to the principles and methods of organized crime, because those are what actually correspond to human beings and civilization operating as entropic pumps of environmental energy flows. THE AUTHORITY TO ISSUE "CREDIT" IS ACTUALLY BASED ON THE DE FACTO HISTORY OF THE MURDER SYSTEMS, THEREBY CREATING THAT MONETARY AUTHORITY.

Money is measurement backed by murder, which actually manifests through combined money/murder systems, where the debt controls are backed by the death controls. Although it might be theoretically possible for "credit" to have some different basis, the actual "test" for reality during human history has been "Who can kill whom?"

The established sociopolitical systems were quite paradoxically driven by natural selection pressures through the history of successful warfare based on backing up deceits with destruction, morphing to become successful finance based on enforcing frauds, to become systems of artificial selection which deliberately ignore and/or misunderstand natural evolutionary ecologies, due to those sociopolitical systems NOT wanting to admit and address what they are really doing, since their social successfulness has depended upon a long history of becoming as dishonest as possible about doing that, while those lies were backed by violence, so that those bullshit social stories became the biggest bullies' bullshit, which dominates all sociopolitical systems, and therefore, all of those systems continue being operated by the best available professional hypocrites.

Nothing fundamental has changed with respect to human beings and civilization operating as entropic pumps of environmental energy flows, whose operations necessarily matched the principles and methods of organized crime, EXCEPT the approximately exponential progress in physical science and technology, so that the previous systems of paper frauds, backed by gunpowder weapons, have become globalized electronic monkey money frauds, backed by the threat of violence from apes with atomic bombs.

The only way to have relatively more rational political debates would be to admit and address the ways that political economy is INSIDE human ecology. However, of course, that is politically impossible, because while the social facts are that the death controls back up the debt controls, the long history of the social successfulness based upon being able to do that was the history of successful warfare based upon backing up deceits with destruction, morphing to become successful finance based upon enforcing frauds.

THE VICIOUS SPIRALS OF POLITICAL FUNDING ENFORCING FRAUDS GO AROUND AND AROUND AND AROUND, GETTING WORSE, FASTER! Human beings operate their artificial selection systems in the most deliberately dishonest ways possible, and that applies to BOTH the core groups of organized crime (currently the bankster controlled governments) AND the various layers of controlled opposition groups that surround that core of organized crime.

The artificial selection systems should become better reconciled with the natural selection systems. The human evolutionary ecologies ought to be better done, within a more scientific society. However, the first and foremost developments of the actually existing artificial selection systems were actually driven by the principles and methods of organized crime, operating on larger and larger scales, pumped up and UP by progress in physical science, while political science continued to be so totally dominated by the biggest bullies' bullshit world views, that the philosophy of science was more forced to compromise with the biggest bullies' bullshit, rather than the progress in physical science was able to change the degree of sociopolitical domination done by the best available professional hypocrites, operating through their relative social successfulness based upon backing up lies with violence, gradually becoming the currently existing systems of legalized lies, backed by legalized violence.

The deeper reasons for how and why militarism is the supreme ideology should be better understood and embraced. AGAIN & AGAIN, natural selection pressures drove the development of artificial selection systems to become deceits backed by destruction, then the enforcement of frauds, all of which were socially successful through those core groups of organized crime, operating on larger and LARGER scales, being able to effectively control the layers of bogus "opposition" groups that surrounded that core of organized crime. Hence, we continue, more and MORE, to live in Wonderland Matrix Bizarro Worlds, where everything is publicly presented in the most absurdly backward ways possible, and that includes the bogus "solutions" to those problems, which continue to operate inside of the dualities of false fundamental dichotomies and the related impossible ideals.

Instead of using unitary mechanisms to develop better death control systems, to back up better debt control systems, which are the ONLY genuine solutions to the existing problems, we continue to be stuck in the deepening ruts of operating the actual combined money/murder systems based upon the maximum possible deceits and frauds. Paradoxically, while human beings and civilization actually operate as general energy systems, through unitary mechanisms, natural selection pressures have drive the development of artificial selection systems which became most socially successful by becoming more deceitful and fraudulent, which was expressed through the development of the biggest bullies' bullshit language based upon the dualities of false fundamental dichotomies and the related impossible ideals. The currently biggest bullies, or the best organized gangsters, are the banksters, and therefore, the banksters' bullshit most totally dominates society.

The world of political economy tends to continue get away with deliberately ignoring the environmental ecologies as much as possible. Sociopolitical systems based upon ENFORCING FRAUDS are necessarily based upon deliberately ignoring the principle of the conservation as much as possible, while also deliberately misunderstanding the concept of entropy in the most absurdly backward ways possible. Hence, it now looks like it is politically impossible for civilization to develop better artificial selection systems, because all of the deeply entrenched, established systems are operated by the best available professional hypocrites, whose social successfulness is based on being able to operate through integrated systems of legalized lies, backed by legalized violence. That the ONLY connections between human laws and natural laws are the abilities to back up lies with violence tends to be deliberately ignored and denied, and misunderstood and misrepresented, as much as possible, by the sociopolitical systems actually doing that. Since that violence never stops those lies from still being false, but nevertheless, those frauds are effectively enforced, civilization as a whole become increasingly psychotic.

Meanwhile, that situation makes it appear to now be politically impossible to stop VICIOUS SPIRALS OF POLITICAL FUNDING ENFORCING FRAUDS automatically getting worse, faster ... so that the most probable futures are psychotic breakdowns, crazy collapses into chaos, and severe series of social storms blowing through, due to the natural selection pressures building up and UP inside artificial selection systems which adamantly refuse to admit and address those issues in any other ways than even bigger lies, backed by more violence, despite that having become globalized electronic frauds, backed by the threat of force from atomic bombs!

A more genuinely scientific society, contrary to an oxymoronic scientific dictatorship, would better understand the relationships of artificial selection systems inside natural selection systems. However, the currently existing kinds of scientific dictatorship continue to be as deliberately unscientific about themselves as possible, since their social successfulness depends upon the vast majority of people not understanding themselves any better, and moreover, feeling like they do not want to understand themselves any better. For all those reasons, our current kinds of technological civilization is rushing toward self-destruction, (to the degree that it seems practically pointless to bother to try to explain that to people who do not want to understand that!)

One can not fully imagine the degree to which the ruling classes have becoming increasingly psychotic psychopaths, while the matching developments have been the degree to which those ruled over have become impotent, incompetent political idiots.

But nevertheless, despite those being the current social facts, theoretically speaking the only way that a technological based civilization might survive developing tools that are trillions of times more powerful and capable than ever before in human history would be by going through series of intellectual scientific revolutions, which were applied to political science in general, and to the combined money/murder systems in particular. However, at the present time, the degree to which there is no publicly significant genuine opposition to the bankster controlled governments means that there are virtually no rational public debates about how to operate better death control systems, nor even recognition of the ways that those death control systems are what necessarily back up the debt control systems.

Instead, we are headed towards the entrenched debt slavery systems generating numbers which have become debt insanities, which are going to provoke death insanities. The ONLY, albeit remotely possible, ways that civilization could survive is to develop better death control systems, which would have to be based upon series of profound paradigm shifts in the ways that we perceive death control systems. The main challenges in the foreseeable future will amount to attempting to steer the eruptions of death insanities towards the possible development of better overall death control systems. While that is theoretically possible, that appears to be politically impossible at the present time, due to the established sociopolitical systems being operated by the best available professional hypocrites, who deny the facts regarding what the actually existing death control systems are, and/or, continue to promote false fundamental dichotomies, and impossible ideals, such as there should not be any death control systems, or at least none that human beings are consciously operating.

With reference to the article above, the Clintons were merely more players passing through upon the public stage, that participated in the overall development of civilization based upon the principles and methods of organized crime, which have enabled the apparent anomalies to become even more blatantly obvious that governments are the biggest forms of organized crime controlled by the best organized gangs of criminals, i.e., the existing bankster controlled governments ENFORCED FRAUDS.

What I am asserting is that it is necessary to go through profound paradigm shifts in order to understand those anomalies. Any "solutions" to those problems of bankster controlled governments ENFORCING FRAUDS that are based upon the same old-fashioned dualities of false fundamental dichotomies, which are supposed to somehow realize impossible ideals, are merely more bogus bullshit.

Inside that overall context, it continues to be extremely typical bogus bullshit to blame either "capitalism" or "socialism," etc. ... I repeat that the only things which actually exist are the dynamic equilibria between different systems of organized lies operating robberies, and therefore, the only realistic resolutions of the real problems are changes in those dynamic equilibria, due to changes in those systems of organized lies operating robberies.

How Hillary and Bill Clinton Parlayed Decades of Public Service into Vast Wealth

"It’s hard to come across as a credible critic of Wall Street when your bed is feathered with six-figure speaking payments to investment banks and private equity firms."


To paraphrase what Richard Johnson stated towards the end of the video embedded into the original article above, the Clintons have been able to put more than $100 million into their lifeboat, despite that the crazy corruption whose agenda they advanced tending towards sinking the overall ship of state.

Over and over, there are plenty enough people who are the best available professional hypocrites, like the Clintons, who are well rewarded for doing things that deliver private benefits, despite the bigger, longer term public harms. Indeed, given the existing systems, it is relatively few people who would say "no" to taking advantage like the Clinton's did.

... And what would you do if you were offered $130 million in easy money for you and your family to make a few key decisions, to look the other way at times, while having no fear of punishment, with all your many sins forgotten, excused, and ignored by a compliant press?

The worst enemy of the established systems are themselves, BUT only in the longer term, which does not appear to matter much to those who are willing and able to take advantage of continuing to operate within the established systems of legalized lies, backed by legalized lies, DESPITE THE LONGER TERM CONSEQUENCE FOR EVERYONE.
