I don't watch any of the political shows...Heck, I don't even have cable. But I ran into this clip from youtube and thought I'd share it with ATS.
Being that it was posted in late October, I did half a dozen searches here trying to see there was already a thread. If so, I apologize in advance.
I also apologize for the video title, I hope it doesn't get the thread wiped. (come to think of it, maybe that's why it hasn't been on ATS
I'll hit post and we'll see what happens. MODS: If you gotta act, I included a soft link to the video as well, please keep that!
Apparently this Dylan Ratigan hosts a show on MSNBC, "Free America". I gather from his website he's the
MSNBC's Glenn Beck knockoff. I don't know. But what I do know is that in this clip, he gets fired up over the fact that, in his words, "America
is being extracted."
I am amazed that he got 5 minutes of national airtime, without any abrupt commercial cutaways or technical difficulties. What he said strips away all
the politcal crap we Americans get so willingly sucked into.
For those who can't watch the video at the moment, in a nutshell:
1. "This is a mathematical fact: Tens of trillions of dollars are being extracted from the United States."
2. There is a complete refusal to acknowledge (on both sides of the aisle) that America is being "extracted" financially. It isn't the Right or the
Left doing this, it is a 3rd power, built up by both parties over decades, comprised of the Financial system, Trading system and Taxing system, that
is extracting money from America, through banking, trade and taxation.
3. Congress is bought and paid for. They are so corrupt they are incapable of doing anything that goes against the interests of their masters, the
implication being the international banking cartel. They legislate in fear of getting fired, i.e. cut off from their corporate funding.
4. Both parties' fiscal solutions are wrong...one side wants to "burn the place down" (not sure what that means exactly), while the other side
wants to "kick the can down the road" to get their president a second term.
4. Ratigan states that the only solution would be for the President to step up to the American people, admit frankly that these problems exist, that
congress is bought and paid for, and then fix it. Until that issue is addressed there isn't a financial solution in the world that will work, no
matter how brilliant, because it will never get passed.
5. If he were president, he would create a national bank with "2% blending" (again, not sure of the terminology) using repatriated funds, to lend to
small business at a 2% rate, because, "...the banking system is fully corrupt, and defrauding us."
I'd hope there are more people who would lose it like that on national tv. The guy has spoken the truth and at the moment the truth has to be spoken
with no other language but the harshness. More people should voice opinions like that in order to shake that rotten tree of banking system which is
not just an american problem but an europian too.
ITS ABOUT TIME THAT SOMEONE SAID WHAT WE ARE ALL FEELING!
WHERE IS ALL THE MONEY GOING. RECENTLY THE US CAME OUT AND SAID THEY LOST 2 TRILLION DOLLARS. 2 TRILLION WITH A T! UNFORTUNATELY MOST AMERICANS
CANNOT EVEN CONCEIVE HOW MUCH MONEY THIS IS. AT THE END OF THE DAY THE BLIND TRUST TO THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA AND BEING DISTRACTED BY THE SCANDAL OF THE
DAY HAS GOT TO A TIPPING POINT. SCREW CLIMATE CHANGE, IF AMERICANS WOKE UP ONE DAY AND THERE WAS NO FOOD IN THE STORES, IT WOULD BE TOTAL ANARCHY.
AMERICA WAKE UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THIS IS A VERY REAL POSSIBILITY. THE LAST TIME GOLD WAS THIS HIGH WAS BEFORE THE GREAT DEPRESSION. AND BY THE WAY,
THAT PIECE OF PAPER YOU HAVE THAT ENSURES YOUR GOLD, IT WILL BE WORTH NOTHING IF THE BANK COLLAPSES. THAT GOES FOR YOUR SAVINGS 2. IT IS ALREADY
HAPPENING. JUST LOOK AT THE CHICAGO STOCK EXCHANGE. IS IT A COINCIDENCE THAT BECAUSE WE ARE BROKE ALL OF OUR TROOPS ARE COMING HOME OR IS IT A
STRATEGIC MOVE TO POSITION THEM IN CASE OF MARTIAL LAW. BE SAFE OUT THERE!
...I feel like I'm in the twilight zone. I remember watching this the day it aired & posted a comment in one of the threads back 3-4 months ago. Not a
word of it for a while, now in the past couple weeks this video has literally been posted around 10 times.... Do people know how to use the search
function or is it some viral-inspired anomaly?? I usually don't harp on people for repost either but this is just ridiculous.
With all that said, yes it's a classic rant and one of Ratigans best.
edit on 10-12-2011 by Raelsatu because: (no reason given)
I've been watching Ratigan as my only hour of msm tv for two years now and well worth it (CSPAN has become as uninforming and distracting as the rest
of the msm over the years and not worth wasting time on anymore).
He actually tells it as it is, whether people can handle it or not, to attempt to educate his viewers who really controls gov't, why they do it, how
they do it (manipulating our institutions through their political puppets), and what the price the U.S. and basically most of the world will pay for
He goes off on both politcal parties for being owned and controlled by the big money special interests and for turning their backs on the people and
the country. He exposes the true system for what it is and he's pissed off to hell because it's HIS country and OURS that's being destroyed before
our eyes. He's mentioned a number of times (jokingly) about concern for his life because of what he's doing but he's on a mission (reminds me a
little of Bill Cooper) and passionate about it.
He won't touch the CFR, Trilateral Commission, Jesuits/Church, Freemasons, or Bilderbergers, but you can get plenty of info on them from many
places. Ratigan is a real American hero. I'm looking forward to getting his book too.
