Over the past several years I have discovered a lot of great documentaries on the Internet. The frustrating part was trying to find them again for friends. Thus I started Video Journal(s) where I'm trying to weave the videos/documentaries into comprehensive stories. This Video Journal is about corruption, crony capitalism and corporate/Wall Street GREED.

I don't think people understand what Wall Street's GREED has gotten us into. Sure we all know about the 700 billion dollar TARP bail-out, and the 18 trillion dollars national debt.  But, I don't think people are aware of all the trillions of dollars the FED (Federal Reserve) has loaned to the Wall Street Banks, which doesn't trickle down to main street, or the 700 trillion-to-1.2 quadrillion dollar derivatives bubble that the World's banks are sitting on (see the Financial Crisis News Magazine).

Sunday Show Hosts Hit Back On Trump Administration's Lies
HP | Amanda Terkel | 01/22/17

"Alternative facts are not facts, they're falsehoods."

President Donald Trump's administration has spent its first days in office aggressively attacking the media for what it calls attempts to "delegitimize" the country's new leader. On Sunday, the hosts of the network public affairs shows hit right back and essentially called out the administration for lying.

Both Trump and Press Secretary Sean Spicer insisted on Saturday that the crowd that watched the inauguration this year was the biggest ever. Trump claimed that TV networks showed a picture of an "empty field" and that from where he stood, "it looked like a million, a million and a half people" had attended. He also falsely stated that the crowds "went all the way back to the Washington Monument."

"This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration -- period -- both in person and around the globe," Spicer said at his first press briefing.

None of those statements are true. But on Sunday, White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and Kellyanne Conway, a counselor to the president, continued to attack the media for being dishonest and focusing on crowd size ? an issue Trump loved to talk about during his campaign. The Sunday show hosts, however, aggressively went after the Trump administration for its lies. ... Read more

Women's March on Washington: Historic Protest Three Times Larger Than Trump's Inaugural Crowd
DemocracyNow | author | 01/23/17

In one of the largest days of protest in U.S. history, millions took to the streets Saturday one day after the inauguration of Donald Trump. The largest protest was the Women's March on Washington, where more than 500,000 packed the streets. According to crowd scientists at Manchester Metropolitan University in Britain, the crowd was roughly three times the size of the audience at President Trump's inauguration a day earlier. Women-led marches took place in over 600 locations spread across seven continents--including Antarctica. In addition to Washington, massive protests took place in Boston; Chicago; Denver; Los Angeles; Madison, Wisconsin; New York; Oakland; Portland, Oregon; St. Paul; San Francisco and Seattle. According to one count, as many as 4.6 million people took part in the global day of action. ... Read more

Despite boasts, Trump's administration riddled with staffing holes
Politico | Matthew Nussbaum | 01/19/17

Mike Pence, usually one for modesty, stepped to the podium Thursday morning for a transition victory lap, crowing that 27 Senate-confirmable positions had been named, 536 beachhead team members were set to land at federal agencies ("bright and early -- on Monday morning"), and that incoming President Donald Trump's transition team had accomplished it all with time and money to spare.

"We're wrapping up this transition on schedule and under budget," Pence said, echoing one of Trump's favorite lines to describe his real estate projects. But the sunny picture Pence painted is an incomplete and misleading one. ... Read more

Donald Trump's Journey From 'Con Man' To President
HP | S.V. Date | 01/19/17

... Mo Elleithee, director of the Institute of Politics and Public Service at Georgetown University and previously a longtime Democratic Party staffer, said voters angry at the system were key to Trump's success. "They wanted someone who just wanted to roll a grenade into the room," he said. "They didn't know what the room was going to look like after it was done. They just wanted it blown up."

Weaver is far less charitable ? toward his own party ? arguing that years of pandering to voters upset about President Barack Obama for less than honorable reasons created the climate for someone like Trump to win. "We preyed on people's fears," he said. "And all of that caught up with us. And we have no one to blame but ourselves."

Matt Mackowiak, a Texas GOP consultant, "Donald Trump is a 100-year-old flood, politically," he said. "Elections are about a choice. You had two unlikeable candidates. One embodied change, the other embodied the status quo."

"If you had a half football stadium worth of voters in three states change their votes, Hillary Clinton would be president, narrowly," he added. ... Read more

Trump asks key Obama counterterrorism officials to stay on
politico.com | Gregory Hellman | 01/19/17

President-elect Donald Trump's transition team Thursday announced that a handful of top Obama administration counterterrorism officials will remain in their posts after the inauguration. The decision comes amid rising concerns that personnel gaps in key national security agencies could leave the incoming administration ill-prepared to deal with a crisis.

Trump spokesman Sean Spicer said among those staying on after Friday will be Nick Rasmussen, director of the National Counterterrorism Center; Brett McGurk, special presidential envoy for the global coalition to counter ISIL; Tom Shannon, undersecretary of state for political affairs; and Adam Szubin, the Treasury Department's acting undersecretary for terrorism and financial intelligence. ...

In an era defined by mass incarceration, endless war, economic crisis, catastrophic environmental destruction, and a political system offering more of the same, radical social transformation has never been more urgent--or seemed more remote.

A manifesto for movement-makers in extraordinary times, Demand the Impossible! urges us to imagine a world beyond what this rotten system would have us believe is possible.

In critiquing the world around us, insurgent educator and activist Bill Ayers uncovers cracks in that system, raising the horizons for radical change, and envisioning strategies for building the movement we need to make a world worth living in.

Now... Who Own the Derivative Time Bomb?

Five Banks Account For 96% Of The $250 Trillion In Outstanding US Derivative Exposure; Is Morgan Stanley Sitting On An FX Derivative Time Bomb?
Zero Hedge | Author | 09/24/11

The latest quarterly report from the Office Of the Currency Comptroller is out and as usual it presents in a crisp, clear and very much glaring format the fact that the top 4 banks in the US now account for a massively disproportionate amount of the derivative risk in the financial system. Specifically, of the $250 trillion in gross notional amount of derivative contracts outstanding (consisting of Interest Rate, FX, Equity Contracts, Commodity and CDS) among the Top 25 commercial banks (a number that swells to $333 trillion when looking at the Top 25 Bank Holding Companies), a mere 5 banks (and really 4) account for 95.9% of all derivative exposure (HSBC replaced Wells as the Top 5th bank, which at $3.9 trillion in derivative exposure is a distant place from #4 Goldman with $47.7 trillion). The top 4 banks: JPM with $78.1 trillion in exposure, Citi with $56 trillion, Bank of America with $53 trillion and Goldman with $48 trillion, account for 94.4% of total exposure. As historically has been the case, the bulk of consolidated exposure is in Interest Rate swaps ($204.6 trillion), followed by FX ($26.5TR), CDS ($15.2 trillion), and Equity and Commodity with $1.6 and $1.4 trillion, respectively.
