The Fed has put up trillions, but who’s counting? We don’t know who got the guarantees. We don’t know exactly how much. We don’t know how much the taxpayers will be on the hook for. We don’t know who is getting rich from it. But who’s counting?
I think that in the Propaganda Age sometimes you can learn what an agenda is by watching what gets done rather than listening to what gets said.
Now we are in the Propaganda Age. Everything is marketing. Everything is PR. Everything is for effect. Everything is distraction: Look over there! Everything is misdirection: look at the left hand while the right hand picks your pocket. We’re told that things we see right in front of us are not what we see.
When confronted by the intent to deceive learn to watch what is done and ignore what is said.
For example, after the invasion of Iraq they sent forces to secure and guard the oil fields and the Oil Ministry buildings, but no one to look for WMD. From that it was not hard to deduce that WMD was just a cover story – what they said – and what they DID was they got them some oils.
OK, now watch this video. This is Rep. Alan Grayson questioning the Inspector General of the Federal Reserve.
Rep. Alan Grayson asks the Federal Reserve Inspector General about the trillions of dollars lent or spent by the Federal Reserve and where it went, and the trillions of off balance sheet obligations. Inspector General Elizabeth Coleman responds that the IG does not know and is not tracking where this money is.
NO ONE is watching and reporting back to the taxpayers what is being done in their name with their money. What do you think about that?
P.S. I posted this under the category “corruption.”
