Having researched the hell out of the HSBC story of a $15 trillion dollar loan from person or persons unknown, I have been unable to debunk it. The existence of the person supposedly responsible for the money does not seem to be real, however the money itself is there for all tense and purposes, with no explanation of how it got there. I have postulated that there are a secret group of individuals that may be in possession of vast sums of money, certainly much bigger than what we are being told people are worth. If we really knew what the actual amount was, we'd riot in the street, thus the veil of secrecy is so important to them.
But how did they get it? The old fashioned way, of course: they stole it. Going back several decades, any good researcher will notice a pattern of "disappearing" huge sum of money. Audits are required of every federal agency, all of which are public record. The largest audit, not surprisingly, goes to the DoD, responsible for the entire military budget for the year and a sinkhole of waste. The funny part about all of this is that the DoD rarely does an audit, which is against the law by the way since it went into effect in the mid-90's. Those they have completed consist of $2.3 trillion missing in 1999, $1.1 trillion in 2000, and while they declined to do an audit for 2001, a press conference by Donald Rumsfield, the day before 9/11 no less, said that $2.3 trillion dollars had again gone missing. For those bad at math, for just those three years, one agency "lost" $5.7 TRILLION. Yeah, that didn't go into anyone's pocket.
And what about Social Security? There's supposed to be $2.6 trillion on gathered monies in there right? Nope, the government took it all, left us a worthless "IOU" and then started screaming about it being unsustainable. The only reason it's broke is because someone took all that money and I kind of doubt it went to government projects.
Our system is broken, and I've seen it firsthand how government does business. If you want to start a business with government, first you have to fork over millions, either through a PAC, charity or other shady way to basically bribe the politician, and then he gives you double that back in taxpayer money with no assurances how the money is spent. A wise con man takes the money, does a little to break ground on a project that was never going to be built in the first place, and skips town free and clear when the permits fall through or a group of people suddenly complain about whatever it is you are trying to build.
Adrian's Landing in CT is a good example of real corruption. This project has been on the books now since I was in college and all they've built is a walkway, a convention center and a really expensive science museum. In 1999, I was in negotiations to bring a movie studio to the Hartford area when government corruption shut us down and the deal was given to actress Cathy Moriarty's sleezebag husband, who like always, took the taxpayer money and skipped town after the whole deal fell through as expected. Dee Snyder, or Twisted Sister, was reported to have been shopping a heavy metal museum for the city but received similar treatment of "pay up or nothing happens" mentality.
This same garbage was seen most recently in Obama's deal with Solyndra, who received money when every accountant looked at the deal as a sure loser. Sure enough, right after the government gave them money, they went bankrupt six months later. And that money all just disappeared into things like "operating costs," and "overhead." More than likely, they took the money, pocketed it in some creative way, and let the company flounder as they made their bit of coin and screw everyone else.
I haven't even mentioned the $600 trillion derivative market shortfall, a lot of which has been illegally dumped on FDIC shoulders and the American people. This money had to go somewhere and I am betting off shore accounts, shell companies and private banks are all swimming in dough over it. There could literally be hundreds of trillions of dollars out there and a select few have access to it.
Money on an astronomical scale is being stolen from us, the MSM says nothing, and the Teatards and the American Taliban scream at us for being wasteful consumers that should thank god for the GOP and their "help." We need accountability. We need leadership. And our current group of failures running for president are nothing like that. We can choose Obama out of necessity, but only because a GOP run world may be more a guillotine than the slow strangulation offered by the democrats. While I see little in difference between Romney and Obama, Romney cowtowing to every right wind GOP whim, no matter how offensive, means I can't vote for him, less gay people become the new slaves, women's reproductive rights go the way of the dodo, and we are all forced to go to Church every Sunday. I have to choose Obama's corporate idiocy any day, even if I really hate it.
Where a leader when you want him or worse NEED him?
