Yeah, recall, it was Goldman-Sachs that bet against the US during the BP Gulf spill - - and Goldman also shorts gold even as they advise their customers differently.

From Wikipedia: "On Friday, 13 October 1307, hundreds of the Knights Templar were arrested in France, an action apparently motivated financially and undertaken by Philip IV to increase the prestige of the French crown."

Sounds like another roundup is warranted. Time for the FBI and CIA to do their job and roundup the Banksters, an enemy foreign and domestic.

Yeah, except that the CIA exists to do Wall Street's bidding. That's why the CIA was created. MHG

I agree the CIA is a tool for another decision making body. But which one?

25% of the US economy is Finance related, and growing... this isn't going to stop anytime soon...

I remember reading it's over 1/3 now - 35-36%.
