As a presidential candidate, Barack Obama promised transparency and open government yet his administration is one of the most closed governments in US history, described as being worse than even the Nixon administration.The technology and information revolution allows the government to cast its net wider than ever before; collecting data, watching, spying and analysing. As revelations of systemic snooping continue to hit the headlines, Empire asks: who is watching the watchers? Joining us as we unpack some of the known unknowns are Oscar-winning film director Oliver Stone, and war reporters Jeremy Scahill and Richard Rowley. We unravel the psychology of secrets with psychiatrist Justin Frank, the author of Obama on the Couch and Bush on the Couch. We look at the impact of state secrets brought to light with Dana Priest, a leading Washington Post investigative reporter on national security and author of two books, including her most recent Top Secret America: The Rise of the New American Security State. We are also joined by Michael Ratner, president emeritus of the Center for Constitutional Rights and an attorney representing Julian Assange and Wikileaks; as well as Evgeny Morozov, an expert on internet and privacy issues.

    I’ve only watched 15 minutes and not one word about the Federal Reserve and compound interest.As long as those issues are not discussed this I will view as a misdirection piece.

    Nobody, but nobody in this entire presentation mentioned anything concerning where our government gets the money to operate. Let’s see. Every dollar our government ‘borrows’ is obtained through the federal reserve bank. That money is borrowed with interest already attached to it. That means, in essence, within our national debt, are interest payments only, paid to the federal reserve bank. It’s the biggest scam in our nations history.

    Sponsored by Travelers. Look at the sources of funding by the public broadcasted programming and you see those whose interests are served. One has to be very skeptical of any programming that is sponsored like this because these sponsors would never knowingly advertise against their own interests.

    “Money will be more expensive for people.” – Clinton

    End the Fed, the IMF, BIS, the OECD, and the World Bank – and the money will cost the people nothing except the cost of ink, paper, and the press. Debt based money is a losing game for everyone except the unelected capital owners of these organizations.
