Big Commodity Trader: U.S. President Is Only A Puppet
(snippet) RW: I think that could be true. I really believe that 80%–90% of the American public is regularly sold a bill of goods by the Wall Street media from New York and Washington. It just keeps coming day after day and, after awhile, it wears them out. I think the majority of Americans still believe a lot of this information. From my point of view, a good portion of it is just nonsense.
TGR: If you could speak directly to the public and tell them what you believe they should know, what would you tell them?
RW: Well, I would say that the U.S. president is not really the man in charge. The people who are in charge of world economics, world currencies, governments and corporations are a shadow political group that has a great deal of power. Presidents in the U.S. are just puppets. They're selected for their ability to do what they're told. Congress is basically just a tool for these corporations and outsiders to manipulate the rules to get what they want. I think that's obvious when you look at what's happened with all the offshoring of American jobs. The issue that's got a lot of people disturbed right now is the open border between Mexico and the United States. That exists because corporations want cheap labor. And there are obviously a lot of people involved in the Mexican drug trade. There's a sheriff in Arizona who said that even members of Congress are involved. Until the teeth are taken out of pharmaceutical economics, these things are going to continue.
Recently it's become much worse because of what's happened with the global banks and derivatives market. That's what caused the Lehman Brothers collapse and took down the global economy. To make it worse, then–Treasury Secretary Henry (Hank) Paulson basically took government taxpayer money and gave it to the banks. He conjectured that, if we didn't, the global financial system would implode. Quite frankly, I think it would've been better if we had taken our medicine and just moved on. But what's happened now is that 90% of the toxic debt in those banks remains in those banks. They've taken it off balance sheets and put it into other corporations or partnerships (i.e., offshored it). They're just holding the money given to them by the U.S. government earning bond interest. They're not making loans to improve the economy. More Here..
