max kaiser this is the kaiser report so mervyn king governor of the bank of england says that we're facing the worst financial crisis in history had he been watching the show he would have known that this has been the case for many many months he also goes on to say that he does watch the kaiser report but he doesn't have enough financial literacy to understand what we're saying on the show where i mean kang step aside bring in stacy herbert who should be running the bank of england. i would bury it the first day always running at even neglected to mention of course
10:32 pm
why we are in the worst financial catastrophe of all time and that's because of the central bank of england and america and the rest of the world and the top one percent that they represent and you know there is this building or this global insurrection against banker occupation the ninety nine percent against the one percent so here's the one percent responding headline reads chicago board of trade taunts occupy chicago we are the one percent you know the occupy wall street spread to chicago and you see this photo here max this is from the chicago board of trade and they put up posters in size saying we are the one percent well go board of option stacy herbert of course is the site of listed options back in the one nine hundred seventy s. the beginning of derivatives as that term is understood today and these are kind of the ground zero. financial terrorists goggle school of economics is there
10:33 pm
this is where obama came from a milton friedman a neo liberal school and these fellows should not be so cocky because the mob is beginning to circle i can say maybe in those terms in other words it's not as if these people can simply disappear once they punch the clock and leave the chicago board of options exchange i mean they're living breathing human beings for how long well many people don't know this but we're onto a net actually did the same thing she hung a poster outside of her size saying i am the one percent and here's an image from the eight hundred i guess and this is a picture of her being led to the gate seen i have another picture here max this is the actual blade used to cut her head off soon after she put up her banner saying i am the one percent i'm going to bid on the. like to add that to my collection my
10:34 pm
robes piri and collection of reign of terror memorabilia with prices for reign of terror america memorabilia are skyrocketing all over the world people begin to remember some of the actions that they can take yes and i'm not advocating that i'm just saying this is what happens in history well i've been saying you know that you need to have something in your back pocket to scare the bankers with if hank paulson can say we need a three trillion dollar bazooka to scare the banks into giving us more money then the ninety nine percent can say we've got to get in. so let's move on to herman cain wall street protests are un-american he says he's republican presidential candidate herman cain and he says that the wall street protesters are un-american and against capitalism and quote that protesters shouldn't rally against wall street bankers or brokers because they're the ones who create the jobs well herman cain is completely wrong on this point i mean the wall street is there an allocated
10:35 pm
capital area of herman cain in the current iteration of wall street which is a vast concentration of capital this is of course the complete opposite of what the supposed to happen with the allocation the equitable and creates jobs he's destroying jobs exactly and that you are saying at the top of the show that mervyn king is saying this is the worst financial catastrophe in the history of the universe why it's because bankers have mis allocated capital is that's their single job they're supposed to allocate capital into productive enterprise is right not into fraud and casinos and scams right and how do they do that they do that by using derivatives to steer the risk of capitalism into the public domain and they keep the reward derivatives in the options volatility formula is kind of like the splitting of the atom you know the split capitalism
10:36 pm
between risk and reward and created a financial nucular bomb in which they keep all of the reward and all the risk is rotting in the rest of the of the society and he also says it's un-american if you want to look at what is american and what isn't just look up thomas jefferson or john adams what they said about bankers and wall street i mean they make us look tame right jefferson famously thought that bankers were the biggest threat to liberty you know back going back to one thousand nine hundred. i'm a member of the anti-globalization movement as it was called back then they have the battle in seattle and there was a huge outcry at the time against globalization now ten eleven years later you've gotten naomi klein's in the michael moore's and these people finally realize it's the bankers stupid and now one banker has gone to jail over the last three years and that's bernie madoff and everybody says that was
10:37 pm
a bad out all the rest of the system is fine and the financial system has collapsed by pure sheer coincidence nothing happened to cause it so we're going to turn to this headline made off whistleblower tells king world news banks stealing from pensions now this is harry my koppel is he's the one that ten years before the made off fraud collapsed he was the one that wrote to the f.c.c. a ten fifteen page letter outlining exactly why bernie made off was a ponzi scheme and how it was operating well harry markopoulos is involved in this lawsuit against bank of new york mellon he's the one they gave all the evidence to the attorney general of new york and let's turn to this clip from king world news every day every time a state pension fund created a bank would steal approximately three tenths of one percent of every transaction every time a pension fund bought a currency the bank would mark
10:38 pm
a high price but today they would look back because currency trades at a twenty four hour clock what the bank of new york would do is look back twenty hours in a fine all the state pension fund purchase transactions at the high of the day and every time a pension fund tried to sell a currency they would find the price of a lot of the day and they would pocket the difference and they did it not for just ten years but for decades every day for decades well that brings up three points as i count them number one that pension funds are abused this is where banks dump risk when they. make a bad bet and it's a losing bet they dump it in the pension account i myself have done this on wall street many times when i was working on wall street we did these look back trades is this year jim cramer moment and i've said this before you know you put on a big option trade volatility trade at the end of the day don't give an account number to the options dealer on the desk you know because they're in line for a big christmas bonus and then at the end of the day if it's a loser you dump it into a pension account or you give to a corporation for
10:39 pm
a tax loss if it's a winner you go into an account that you've already got a prearranged relationship with where there's a massive kickback and this is written most of the trading on wall street is like this number two the scam itself of skimming pennies skimming small amounts of money on every single transaction it went completely unnoticed for years and years and years what did i say last week if you introduced a tobin tax which is exactly the amount of money we're talking about here nobody would notice it i got e-mails from people saying of course people would notice that it would destroy the banking industry you can't address that tobin tax but here you have a perfect example they stole a certain percentage of every single transaction nobody notices for decades. with a job and tax a small half a percent or one percent transaction fee that a single person would notice if you never told them so this is a centrally a tobin tax that bank of new york mellon has been imposing upon the bottom ninety nine percent but dare you suggest that we reverse that and take that back from the
10:40 pm
one percent and with a tobin tax they're like screeching that this is un-american this is anti-capitalist well what is it when bank of new york mellon does that to the ninety nine percent of their customers it's fraud but they say it's fraud in the service of liquidity and market making the same thing goldman sachs's lloyd blankfein when he goes to congress he says we asked we commit fraud every day but we needed to keep markets open now the third point of course is that this revelation will go unheeded and nobody will act on it. they're part of a criminal syndicate this is why they go unpunished because they're not being they're not being prosecuted as a racket as an under rico to explain to the audience who the bank of new york mellon is here's the wikipedia on them they have one point two trillion dollars in assets under management and twenty five point five trillion in assets under custody and administration thereby being the largest deposit bank in
10:41 pm
the world is the oldest bank incorporation in the united states tracing its origins today stablished one of the bank of new york at seven hundred eighty four by alexander hamilton right and those are passive accounts from old ladies sitting on fortunes and every single month they get their statement and they get out their magnifying glass and they try to figure out of the bank stole money from them this month but they're very good at doing it so they can pick it up and or other pension accounts or their teachers or their firemen remember all these public workers accounts they're being vilified because they want a living wage meanwhile their pensions are being destroyed by bank of new york and other banks so they're getting really gangbang from both directions well harry markopoulos points out in the interview that if you have a pension basically you have been defrauded by bank of new york mellon because everything passes through there that's the twenty five point five trillion asset it flows through there as the deposit back so. emphasise the point as far as the
10:42 pm
infrastructure goes and in management of the pension fund industry they because they are at a key choke point in that whole infrastructure and as gate keepers they're bandits essentially because as the money goes through the system they stand there as a gatekeeper as a bandit and they steal every single transaction and now it's just been becoming revealed the attorney general have to be bought off or bribed or caught in a sex scandal so no prosecution and nothing will will come of this and now importantly there's the occupy wall street they're down well they're trying to get to new york stock exchange. right around the corner is the bank of new york mellon surrounded by police and here is the last clip from harry markopoulos i want to play if al qaeda had done this to americans seal team six will be dropping him but the banks did that and so maybe law enforcement needs to drop into those corporate boardroom and treat them like seal team six peter sama bin laden these bankers think they're above the law they're arrogant they're saying they go to the stand they say they're innocent yet they refused at the trial date and they're stealing
10:43 pm
from tens of millions of americans and by the way thank of new york mellon for tarp banks that we bailed them out so they could pay bonuses by stealing our pension money does we've been saying these are financial terrorists now finally other people are comparing them to other terrorists there's a strong case we made that yes these are financial terrorists number two america has the death penalty already they're already killing dozens and hundreds of people in states like texas ok instead of focusing on killing poor black people why not go after the rich white guys on wall street you've already got the death penalty in place pull the frickin trigger you says so like he said you know seal team six those police protecting bank of new york mellon from the protesters their pension funds have been defrauded by the bank behind them that they're protecting why don't they take the bank drop it into the ocean somewhere put it on an airplane fly it over the atlantic and drop it in the ocean right there the cops in front of the
10:44 pm
bank trying to protect the bank from the protesters and behind their back the banks are ripping them off blind you stupid second cop it's safe here but thanks so much for being on the kaiser report thank you mike don't go away much more coming away so stay right there. was that so much. which of course you'd like to. call it what you will the major political defeat point for woodstock with music due respect to the occupy wall street demonstrations continue to. welcome back to the kaiser report max kaiser oh boy here it is this is the book i've been waiting for investing in troubled times by charles hughes smith big fans
10:45 pm
of charles two smith welcome to the kaiser report thank you max just as you are here in europe that you describe as a neo feudal kleptocracy a five hundred million debt service tell us more well max as you've covered on the show many times it seems that we have to ask who is the recipient of all the sacrifices being asked of the european people both the taxpayers in germany and elsewhere and those who are being suffering under the austerity programs of greece etc and then it seems that the answer is not the people those countries but the banks which overextended massive quantities of debt to the sovereign states and to the individuals right well this is a point that's being made more and more people understand that the banks are at the heart of the problem i've got this occupy wall street campaign all over the world remember these called anti-globalization and now they figured out well you know behind these companies are the banks are going to focus on the banks and yet there
10:46 pm
is still nobody standing up in the political arena to say like the pechora commission of the one nine hundred thirty s. where they said you know what we've got to go in there start arresting some of these scoundrels what's your thought on the absolute agreement first we have to establish as a society what is right and wrong and clearly the status quo would have us believe in sort of a jedi mind trick that looting as long as it's under the auspices of the status quo is is not a wrong it's like normal you mentioned looting and i mean. i think what's happened in london recently they had a looting spree from folks and david cameron the prime minister came out and very harsh terms castigating those looters and yet he wouldn't be the prime minister unless it were for the looting of the bankers to pay for his election campaign so what is why did the british people accept the fact that their prime minister is a looter in chief but should they just be giving banking licenses to the kids who
10:47 pm
are breaking into shops on the street and they can grow the economy by looting that way yeah you could ask perhaps the same question of ireland and greece how are those people accepting the idea that their. nations are being looted fundamentally to save the banks and the owners of the banks and their political lackeys let's talk about the us for a second you're right that the stealth coup d'etat of two thousand and eight to two thousand and ten so what's going on there. i think it's the culmination of this. buying of the political process by the by the financial sector that reached its apex in two thousand and eight and so lackeys of both parties across the entire political spectrum you know did whatever was necessary to save their financial masters essentially all right and so now we've got the the latest incarnation of the anti-globalization movement it's called occupy wall street and you've got naomi
10:48 pm
klein i think is finally figured this one out and she's joining the barricades so what do you make of the protest. i think it's. a useful. i think those people are heroes to stand up and public their heroes but i think that we can also look at what everybody that's not there could do and this ties in to your campaign of buying silver in other words what kind of direct actions can everyone do from the safety of their home without get a risk risking arrest and so plying silver closing your. accounts that major banks either reneging on your loans that you can never pay or paying them off i mean exiting yourself from being a supporter of the banking the different things i want to as to what about a mass default on mortgages across the country and it's on one designated day that would certainly put the kybosh on the banks and oh that's a great idea so occupy wall street should pick a day in the next couple of weeks and say that we demand that the country the
10:49 pm
united states of america everyone has got an underwater mortgage for sure or anyone else did strategically default on their mortgage do it today this is put the banks under and it forced the government to create a new bank that was claimed that simply did deposits and made loans at a reasonable price and they did exactly what happened during the s. and l. crisis yeah and no as a follow up the citizenry could could demand that instead of five banks which control everything and are therefore too big to fail that by regulation there has to be at least two hundred fifty banks say or twelve hundred fifty a vast number of banks which are unable to amass the concentration of wealth to buy the political process but i think that's called competition. yeah it's a strange concept in some ideology called capitalism which we used to have you know what let me ask about that because michael moore's made a big thing about being anti-capitalist and yet now we don't have a capitalist system if capitalism is means competition and it wouldn't have this problem to begin with where to see getting it wrong i think there is so-called
10:50 pm
classical capitalism that is we're basically told exists across the spectrum but and exist still in small ways like you can go out and become an independent contractor as a capitalist or you can be steve jobs and start a computer company without any political pull. but but i think what most people miss is that spectrum of classical capitalism is a rather narrow band of the entire economy globally and certainly in the us and in the part that's controlled by those with in men's concentrations of wealth and. power control like eighty to ninety percent and that's crony capitalism or. capitalism right now my friend alex jones he's making a move to go down even deeper into the disease by going from occupy wall street to occupy the fed and he's targeting the dallas fed as part of the texas initiative is that in your mind the right direction absolutely and what's interesting max is how
10:51 pm
we see this movement gathering force either into the spectrum that we have. we have the same leftists realizing that the fed has got to be brought under the treasury or and then from the right ron paul is like abolish the fed i mean either one is a move in the right direction so maybe we're getting some consensus right the fed should be under the treasury that's a proposal by dennis to senate yes and which is part it's pretty much the exact idea of audit the fed or what ron paul has been talking about what about this idea that dennis just said it says nationalize the fed put it under the treasury affectively making it transparent within the government's ability to do so but it is not a good idea oh absolutely i mean it's so as to whether we should have a fed is a secondary question but certainly if we have one then it should be under the treasury which is nominally under the elected government right so what would be the objection them and if he said to the fed look we're just going to put you on to the treasury department in your report to tim geithner now ben bernanke and we're going
10:52 pm
to put a guy in tim geithner's office to make sure he knows not doing too many horrible things what could they say back to why that's not a good idea why i think the jet i mind trick is we need an independent fed owned by the banks to make the correct policy for the elected government right but greenspan kind of blew that concept and independent fed by every single time there was a political problem in washington he lowered interest rates which created the bubble which created the enormous banking fraud. which created this massive depression now you mentioned so over a moment ago and we did that crash j.p. morgan by silver campaign it caught huge attention all over the world prices over that time was twenty six rocketed up to fifty dollars an ounce there's been a pullback down to the thirty range still in a bull market still looking good but walk us through how you how that works you're taking physical silver off the market so how does that crash the banks well
10:53 pm
actually you're probably more adept at that argument than i am in you've made it many times and better than i can but i think the key the key function to me is silver amongst many other commodities is actually traded as a commodity and the futures far exceed the actual physical product right so if we the people go out and and physically own most of the physical product then that reduces the amount that's available for leverage and financialization right the banking crisis is due almost entirely to over leverage which is fueled by speculation and the cost of speculating is near zero because interest rates are near zero thanks to this corrupt yes and any time they make a mistake they dump it into a pension account somewhere and it's all however still stacked on top of something physical at the base of the ponzi scheme that's right now as you so if i take a hundred dollars of silver out of the ponzi scheme i am d.
10:54 pm
capitalizing the ponzi scheme by probably close to a thousand dollars at this point yeah that's how bad the so incredibly leverage this system is so it would cause again the ponzi scheme to crash which sounds horrifying unless you realise that it's a ponzi scheme banking cancer and you're trying to get rid of the cancer that's right so it's the leverage seems to be removed and you do that by taking the fundamental layer out of of the of this layer cake of fraud as it were now we've got to herman cain who's running for president. you recently stated that the occupy wall street protesters are on american for it's bankers that create jobs your thoughts one wonders at the audacity of that statement the audacity of of cluelessness that should be as campaign slogan. yeah if if if the bankers create so many jobs and they've been ascendant for at least the
10:55 pm
last decade then we should have zero unemployment. but actually what they're really good at is not creating jobs they're good at creating wealth off the backs of people who still have jobs yeah the parasites they're absolutely parasitic and you know you can look at a mortgage as the equivalent of the physical gold that you know you're making your payment or your student loan or whatever you're making a payment of one hundred dollars and they're leveraging that and turning that into a financial scheme that supports a thousand dollars of speculation so once you know there's only banks then you're just giving your plasma to keep the zombie mobile even though they died years ago yeah that's right ok i'm talking to the want to know me charles you smith this is a book investing in troubled times i suggest you read this alacrity one last question. your post imagining a middle class does not create one tell us what is a middle class what does create a middle class why is
10:56 pm
a middle class even necessary we've got about a minute left if you tell people there their middle class then they tend to become passive and they say you know oh this is wonderful it's kind of like it's managing perception as opposed to their actual financial circumstance which is another that i'm sure it's totally are your star wars what is up with. yeah i didn't bring my lightsaber but yeah it's very much like a movie script that we're being told we're middle class even as the middle class as defined by security and financial situation which is. slowly improving over time is deteriorating well many people in america now believe that they are the middle class when in fact when you compare their status to other the g. twenty nations there have derb airily out of poverty that's right and compared to what they used to earn thirty years ago or even twenty years ago then there their income has declined right so the the folks in the banks and wall in washington are
10:57 pm
hitting this middle class button and people believe it even though the truth is they're their wealth income status is crashing and if they if they faced up to that if they accepted the reality then they'd have to become more politically active yeah i'm a serf i'm a peasant yeah it was with pitchforks or the gates and absolutely it's all in star wars. all right well. thanks for being on the show that's all the time we have ok thank you very much max my pleasure all right that's going to do it for this edition of the kaiser report with me max kaiser and stacy herbert on with my guests charles two smith this is the book that your mind this is a jet i mine tricked by the way you want to send me an email please do so it ties a report at r t t v are you until next time this is nice guys are saying.
