This thread is basically a compilation of information I put together for myself while I was trying to understand why the initial bailout was
necessary.... but after finishing all my research I figured other people would also be interested in what I found.
Ok.. where to start??
Well, first off, lets figure out why the first bailout was necessary.
The largest insurance company in the world, AIG, was about to go bankrupt and needed money so that they did not bring down the world economy with
“without the government's actions, the collapse of AIG could have caused every major bank in the world to fail.”
Thanks to: www.abovetopsecret.com...
They received $123,000,000,000 initially... but soon after it was upped to $150,000,000,000
The reason AIG was going bankrupt and needed the money was because their credit score was lowered which forced them to carry billions of more dollars
in their account than they had before. They didn’t have the money so they asked the government for it otherwise they would gone bankrupt
Now how did their credit score get lowered and why?
The three main rating agencies... Standard & Poor’s, Moody’s, and Fitch, decided “AIG failed to convince them of its financial wellbeing.”
Well, who exactly are these rating agencies?
Lets start with the biggest of the three… Standard and Poor’s
Standard & Poor's (S&P) is a division of McGraw-Hill.
The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., (NYSE: MHP) is a publicly traded corporation headquartered in Rockefeller Center in New York City.
The McGraw-Hill Companies (NYSE: MHP) announced today that it has sold its 45% interest in Rock-McGraw, Inc., which owns the Corporation's
headquarters building at 1221 Avenue of the Americas, New York City, to SL Green Realty Corp. (NYSE: SLG) in a transaction valued at $450 million for
its 45% interest.
The Rockefeller Group maintains its 55% ownership of Rock-McGraw, Inc., and will continue to manage the building. "We look forward to continuing our
excellent relationship with the Rockefeller Group and its new partner, SL Green, which is also an experienced owner of prime commercial real estate in
New York City," Mr. McGraw said.
Here we learn that McGraw-Hill is very much affiliated with the Rockefeller group. I think we all know about the Rockefeller's by now.. right? If not
here is a little quote:
"Some even believe we (Rockefeller family) are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my
family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic
structure---one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it."
David Rockefeller, “Memoirs”, 2002
Here is another excerpt that ties McGraw-Hill to Rockefeller just to be thorough:
Business Week, it should be
mentioned, is published by McGraw-Hill, one of the hundreds of
major companies under Rockefeller control. McGraw-Hill is a
particularly useful voice for the Rockefellers, since it
publishes a series of special industry magazines which
established high prestige long ago and are therefore very
So what we just learned is that the American People's tax money was given to a corporation because another corporation, owned by the people that are
“ working against the best interests of the United States”, said so.
This is where is gets a little “strange”... for lack of a better word.
After doing some research on McGraw-Hill I read this about their building on their wiki page:
“The sunken courtyard of this building contains a large metal triangle, arranged so the Sun aligns with its sides at solstices and equinoxes.”
I thought that was kind of weird so I did a little research on the architect of that building:
Here is a list of his work:
Tribune Tower, Chicago, Illinois 1924
American Radiator Building, also known as the American Standard Building, New York, New York 1924
New York Daily News Building (the model for Superman's The Daily Planet), New York, New York 1929
Rockefeller Center, New York, New York, where Hood was a senior architect on a large design team. 1933-37
McGraw-Hill Building, New York, New York 1934
Masonic Temple, Scranton, Pennsylvania 1930
Other than the Rockefeller Center and the McGraw-Hill Building what stuck out was the Masonic Temple he built before those.
“Architect Raymond M. Hood designed the Masonic Temple, which houses the cultural center. The Masonic Temple is designed in a combination of
Neo-Gothic architecture and Romanesque Architecture. The building was completed in 1930. The temple has a dual nature; it houses the Scottish Rite
Cathedral and a masonic lodge. In fact, the design of the building is a tribute to masonry.”
So.. this guy, Raymond Hood, built a temple that housed “the Scottish Rite Cathedral and a masonic lodge. In fact, the design of the building is a
tribute to masonry” before he built the McGraw-Hill building that has a “large metal triangle, arranged so the Sun aligns with its sides at
solstices and equinoxes.”
What is the significance of solstices or equinoxes to freemasonry?
