A2A with John Titus

149

John Titus is the publisher of the YouTube channel, "Best Evidence". His recent works have included extraordinary documentaries on subjects such as The Financial Crisis and the lack of criminal prosecutions in the years since. His latest production, "All The Plenary's Men" will be released on Friday.

Most readers of TFMR are familiar with John's work. His documentaries have covered...

John's new production deals with the corruptive power held by the Bank of International Settlements and its agents. Its title is "All The Plenary's Men" and, once it's released on Friday, it will be embedded below.

Ahead of the release, it was great to visit directly with John about his work and I think you'll find this to be a fascinating and thought-provoking podcast.

" She says juuuuuuuust enough of the sort of right things to excite people who want the big banks brought to justice. But she never follows through in any meaningful way."

@lakedwellers -- Elizabeth Warren is a fake

What did she do after one tough question? Absolutely nothing. Almost certainly she was told to shut the hell up and like a good little fraud she realized she had run up against that line where you had to actually mean it to keep going and stopped and did absolutely nothing.

She makes juuuuuuust enough noise to have you entertain the notion that she really means it, that she's gonna be so tough on those banks. But what does she do when there's a bill to audit the Fed? Nothing. Zero. Zip. Zilch. Nada. So, she tries to promote the idea that she's oh-so-tough on those banks. But she won't lift a finger to stop the means by which those same banks (one step removed so it's not completely obvious even to ignorant americans) fleece us.

And there's a video that was playing over at SGT report of the story of a guy named Brad Birkenfeld who exposed some of the tremendous corruption of U.S. and Swiss banks. He brought to light scores or perhaps hundreds of outright felonies committed and eventually got a massive whistleblower reward check. But did any of the criminal bankers he exposed go to jail? Nope, he was the only one who did, for exposing their secrets. He was begging congressmen and senators to pick up the ball and run with the corruption he'd exposed. Did any of them? Nope, not a one including Elizabeth Warren who's oh-so-tough on those banks. Just ask her.

Brad Birkenfeld: Lucifer's Banker

She got dropped into her senate job due to unknown benefactors. She had zero political presence, none whatsoever here in Massachusetts. No one had ever heard her frigging name. No one. And then . . . "somehow" the "democratic" party just decided that it had to sweep away all other candidates for the party's nomination. It just had to have her. What luck for a person who's so tough, oh-so-tough on big banks! Usually people who are unwaveringly opposed to the monetary powers that be can't get the levers of the establishment to sweep away all challengers and work in their favor. But "somehow" she did, even though she's tough, oh-so-tough on those big banks.

Puhleaze. The big banks fear her like the hull of an aircraft carrier fears the champagne bottle that'll be smashed against it during the ship's christening ceremony.

She reminds me of that senator from Wisconsin, Bill Proxmire, who used to put out his "golden fleece" awards highlighting government waste. But he would highlight extremely minor bullshit and never really go after the military industrial complex or the shit going on at HUD that Catherine Austin Fitts exposed. He was the kind of fraudulent truth teller you have when the establishment doesn't actually allow the real truth to be told. So is she. She says juuuuuuuust enough of the sort of right things to excite people who want the big banks brought to justice. But she never follows through in any meaningful way.

She's a fraud. And, yeah, she lied through her teeth about being native american to get a position at fucking Harvard. They deserve her and she deserves them. The rest of us deserve someone who's not a fraud.

You Won't Like The Answer

The key is the President and Atty General. If you as a voter could have gotten past the "socialist" label on Bernie Sanders, he unequivocally said there would be no Wall Street in his administration. Then there was the issue as to whether he actually was cheated out of the nomination...possibly due to his stand on Wall Street. Sanders wanted bankers in jail.

Next possibility voters will not consider because of the label of "pocahontas" is Warren. Blocked by the banks from Consumer Protection as well as by Congress and the President, who protected the banks. Consumer protection funding has been threatened since with de-funding because of holding banks accountable. Titus' documentary points out Warren questioned the BIS and Banker immunity issue, and like Ron Paul, has been the thorn in tbe side of Central Banking since winning Senator in response to the Banking rejection of her being Consumer Protection.

Now everyone can blow off the obvious and continue to let the elites determine who you vote for, or you can start listening, watching and observing who actually is acting on their statements and none of those are getting elected.

Trump sold out early as did Obama. The transfer of power to Central Banking was probably sealed with the first bailout in which the massive transfer of wealth was initiated and the US sovereignty weakened.

If you can't get the US Attorney General to do their job, then replace The President. You either restore law and order to the Justice Department or you are forced to take State Action in cases where the banks are doing business in your state and your State citizens are harmed (which is about every action the Wall Street banks perform). Get the governors and State AGs to unite in class actions and file in State Courts and US Courts and hold grand juries and indict criminally every class action if it is a fraud case and pursue both and only settle if their is an admission of criminal guilt. Don't let State leaders hide from their duties.

Jail has always been the answer and that is why Wall Street buys DC or destroys the reputations of those that oppose them. However, the greatest threat to Wall Street is a strong prosecutorial branch of the government. Is your legislator trying to reduce regulation? Are they de-funding or supporting reducing the budgets of regulators. Do they specifically reduce budgets of criminal investigative agencies? Do they redefine missions for criminal investigation agencies like fund terrorist investigation units, while de-funding white collar crime units of the FBI?

This stuff is going on right in front of you and we re-elect the perpetrators. We buy into the programs sponsored by the oligarchs.

Start by electing people that are opposed to thieves and aren't a walking mental case or devoid of human empathy or concern.

TF, sticks?

You never said what sticks you picked. I can't quit playing my G6 irons. Still have my Eye2's, but my son wants to take them to Florida. My original set of "expensive" clubs were Founders Fresh Metals. Still have them(1-Sand), and they are guaranteed to turn right no matter your swing. Watching the golf tourney today in Nuorlens looks like playing here on a average day. Only the sun shines while blowing. They don't me feel so shitty after watching them miss 6 footers because of the wind.

(Edit G5, the zingers know what I mean)

Any coppers out there? I'm looking for an EYE2 Orange PW.

Tf, I have never watched that

Tf, I have never watched that movie. May need to rent this evening. Oklahoma has frozen the death penalty executions due to a "botched" execution. The dude took 40 minutes to die from lethal injection. I wouldn't call it "botched", timely maybe, but he still died. I am more in favor of public hanging. The anti-- say it's inhumane for the proceeding to take beyond x seconds, so I say bring out the guillotine. My one demand is one has to be on their back when executed. https://deathpenaltyinfo.org/node/6419

Don't curse the darkness; light a candle

Bix explains it well....

Ethereum is becoming the platform for blockchain transactions. Ether is the currency on the platform. If you don't under stand what that means it will become obvious soon enough.

BTC Is still the champ for preserving wealth. Exciting times.
