    would be to find out if all this government/corporate collusion involves the banking industry because a lot of international conflict now takes place in that sphere. Yes, capital is spread throughout the world, but how much of it will be moving where and when, might prove of interest to some parties.

    •  The Bush/Walker family was into banking. (0+ / 0-)

      And were in bed up to their eyeballs with the Nazis. George Herbert Walker (Prescott Bush's father-in-law) was at Brown Brothers Harriman when father-in-law and son-in-law had an exciting opportunity to represent the Thyssen Bank:

      Fritz Thyssen (and indirectly, the Nazi Party) had obtained their early financing from Brown Brothers Harriman, and its affiliate, the Union Banking Corporation. Union Bank, in turn, was the Bush family's holding company for a number of other entities, including the "Holland American Trading Company."
       It was a matter of public record that the Bush holdings were seized by the US government after the Nazis overran Holland . . .

      . . . No wonder Allen Dulles had sent Paul Manning on a wild goose chase to South America. He was very close to uncovering the fact that the Bush's bank in New York City was secretly owned by the Nazis, before during and after WWII. Once Thyssen ownership of the Union Banking Corporation is proven, it makes out a prima facie case of treason against the Dulles and Bush families for giving aid and comfort to the enemy in time of war.

      More at the link.  There are numerous other sources for the shameful history of the Bush and Dulles families.

        and a lot of presidents have been best of good buddies with bankers. What I'm wondering about is how many NSA intercepted e-mails, metadata, whatever, have to do with the banks of various countries. I'm sure most are encrypted, but sheer volumes of encrypted data would be informative. Would the officers' home computers be likewise encrypted? What are they telling the in-laws?

          story of how the greedy banksters tanked the economy . . . an issue of national security in my mind.  Seems like they should open up those files to the DoJ.

          If we had a Doj.
