Has anyone watched these videos predicting

a real problem with the US Federal Reserve bank.



These seem pretty sensational but the accusations are easily verifiable.
Has anyone seen these videos and what is the opinion of their predictions?

Re: Has anyone watched these videos predicting

If it's ongoing from pre-history, why does 1995 invalidate it.

Things seem pretty knarly right now.

Gas at $3.00, dollars flying off presses at Lightspeed (porno ref), and market going down, down, down.

Yeah, it's old but so is prostitution.* And it's still relevant.

Wab,
that was a cool video.

It doesnt invalidate it at all if it is indeed valid. But it attenuates the whole Gloom and doom panic disaster about to happen nature of it.

yeah, I guess it's the same thru-out history. IBut I was pretty much just wondering if our Fed really is just another bank.

you don't really want to go to the golds or the diamonds or the goldsmiths or the kleins for that matter. not after that anti-semitic educational video. and turkey's probably safer or at least more tolerant anyway.

I just finished watching the film "Money Masters". I was surprised to see that there has been no mention about this movie since this very old thread. Is the information presented in this film accurate? I am fairly illiterate when comes to high powered finance but it would really depress me to think that this great country has been manipulated (controlled) by a few very powerful control egomaniacs for so many years.

How many powerful control egomaniacs do you know who possess the skill, discipline, and determination to manipulate an entire country's money supply for so many years?

I think many troublesome situations are much more easily explained by incompetence than by a high-level secret conspiracy.

It is simply astonishing that the same people who accuse the gubmint of gross incompetence can also profess that the gubmint is capable of maintaining an overarching global conspiracy that controls damn near everything.

They only want you to think that. It's all part of the conspiracy.

DH has an old college buddy who totally believes this gubmint conspirary stuff while ranting about how they're all idiots. He's not alone.

You can always find someone seemingly credible to support any views you may hold, many pretty convincing if you're not savvy. And the Internet has just made finding whatever wacko conspiracy POV you want to reinforce that much easier, especially WRT anything remotely political, including most economic predictions. It's amazing how often people forward them to "all their friends" without stopping to check or even think through 'does this make sense?'
