L’excellent analyste économique Kevin Freeman dresse ici le portrait de la situation économique actuelle en ce qui concerne ses aspects militaires. Certains pays hostiles à l’Occident, dont la Corée du Nord, la Chine, l’Iran, la Russie, ainsi que des intérêts privés ou religieux du Moyen-Orient, mènent une politique de guerre économique contre les États-Unis notamment. Que ce soit par le biais d’attaques contre le marché des actions, de la dette publique ou des infrastructures informatiques ou de sécurité, certaines vulnérabilités de nos différents systèmes peuvent être exploitées par des intérêts qui nous sont hostiles. Freeman fait le tour de la question, en mentionnant entre autres le rôle joué par George Soros et l’Armée chinoise dans le déploiement d’attaques à caractère économique ou informatique sur nos systèmes.

In an earlier post, I presented an interview with Kevin Freeman aired on Secure Freedom Radio hosted by Frank Gaffney. Freeman was making the case that the 2008 financial crisis has not been caused only by greedy financial executives or failed market regulations but as well by financial « attacks » that targetted specific companies and financial products deemed vulnerable to such manoeuvres. In his book Secret Weapon, Freeman explains and documents how countries or certain interets within them may have used these financial tricks in an attempt to sink the U.S. economy. To supplement the material already cited, here are two video presentations by Freeman, one at the Heritage Foundation and a second with The Daily Caller.
Here is an interview that Lucy Komisar, an investigative reporter specialized on matters related to financial fraud and tricks, gave to Dave Emory for his show, For The Record. Being not a specialist of the financial sector, I won’t venture too far. But there are certain things that I want to draw your attention to, and these are the few tricks that have been developped recently by the crooks of Wall Street. Here they are: short selling, naked short selling and credit default swap.
Short selling happens when a broker buys shares for a client and wait for a certain period of time before transfering it to the buyer. In other terms, the broker waits for the value of the shares to rise on the market before transfering it, therefore making a direct profit in the exchange, besides his normal commission. To give an example, let’s say a broker buys shares at $10 and then waits three days, the legal period of wait, and transfers them at the new current value, for example $12. He then makes a direct profit of $2 per share, plus the commission. Naked short selling happens when a broker buys shares that don’t exist, through a mecanism of « lending » of shares that the Wall Street crooks have invented. With this scheme, the client buyer is not really the owner of the shares, even if he or she possesses papers of ownership. This scam is exposed when there is a vote of share owners and that a greater number of votes are counted than the actual number of shares that exist for that stock. But evidently, the broker gets paid by the « buyer » the value of this phantom share as if it would be real. And credit default swap happens when debts are bundled in large packages and resold in the form of derivative products. You might have heard of the expression « toxic assets ». Anyway, I remind you that I am not sure to get all the nuances for these abstract notions and financial manoeuvres, that is why I am suggeting you to listen to the interview and read the description that Emory made of it in FTR #650. Also, I have joined an article by Lucy Komisar posted on her website about AIG and their financial gambits and problems.
We are governed by crooks and liars. If it is not evident for you already, I think there is more than enough material for you here to change your mind. Welcome to Brave New World.
