breakups, creating companies to fill a perceived economic void through the launching of initial public stock offerings (IPOs), underwriting all stocks, underwriting all corporate and government bond issuance, and pulling the bandwagon down the road of privatization and globalization of the world economy.

A recent president of the World Bank was James Wolfensohn of Salomon Smith Barney. Merrill Lynch had $435 billion in assets in 1994, before the merger frenzy had really even gotten under way. The biggest commercial bank at the time, Citibank, could claim only $249 billion in assets.

In 1991 Merrill Lynch handled 26.8% of all global bank mergers. Morgan Stanley did 16.8%, Goldman Sachs 16.3%, Lehman Brothers 16.1% and Credit Suisse First Boston 14.5%. Morgan Stanley did $60 billion in corporate mergers in 1989. By 2007, reflecting the repeal of Glass-Steagel, the top ten NMA advisers in order were: Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Citigroup, JP Morgan Chase, Lehman Brothers, Merrill Lynch, UBS Warburg, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank and Lazard. In the IPO stock underwriting field for 1991 the top four were Goldman Sachs, Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley and CS First Boston. In the arena of global privatization for years 1985-1995, Goldman Sachs led the way doing $13.3 billion worth of deals. UBS Warburg did $8.2 billion, BNP Paribas $6.8 billion, CS First Boston $4.9 billion and Paribas-owner Merrill Lynch $4.4 billion.

In 2006 BNP Paribas bought the notorious Banca Nacionale de Lavoro (BNL), which led the charge in arming Saddam Hussein. According to Global Finance, it is now the world’s largest bank with nearly $3 trillion in assets.

The leading US debt underwriters for the first nine months of 1995 bore the same familiar names. Merrill Lynch underwrote $74.2 billion in the US debt markets, or 15.3% of the total. Lehman Brothers handled $52.5 billion, Morgan Stanley $47.4 billion, Salomon Smith Barney $45.6 billion. CS First Boston, Chase Manhattan and Goldman Sachs rounded out the top seven. The top three municipal debt underwriters that year were Goldman Sachs, Merrill Lynch and UBS Paine Webber. In the euro-market the top four underwriters in 1995 were UBS Warburg, Merrill Lynch, Deutsche Bank and Goldman Sachs. Deutsche Bank’s Morgan Grenfell branch engineered the corporate takeover binge in Europe.

NOTE: G.H. Walker & Co. was an investment banking and brokerage firm founded in 1900 by George Herbert Walker, grandfather and great-grandfather of Presidents George Herbert Walker Bush and George Walker Bush, and located at 1 Wall Street. The firm was originally based in St. Louis, Missouri.In July 1973, the firm acquired the securities brokerage business of Laird, Inc. The company, later known as G.H. Walker, Laird & Co., was sold to White Weld & Co. in October 1974. White Weld, in turn, was sold to Merrill Lynch in 1978.

The dominant players in the oil futures markets at both the New York Mercantile Exchange and the London Petroleum Exchange are Morgan Stanley Dean Witter, Goldman Sachs (through its J. Aron & Company subsidiary), Citigroup (through its Philbro unit) and Deutsche Bank (through its Banker’s Trust acquisition). In 2002 Enron Online was auctioned off by a bankruptcy court to UBS Warburg for $0. UBS was to share monopoly Enron Online profits with

Lehman Brothers after the first two years of the deal. With Lehman’s 2008 demise, its new owner Barclays will get their cut.
Following the Lehman Brothers fiasco and the ensuing financial meltdown of 2008, the Four Horsemen of Banking got even bigger. For pennies on the dollar, JP Morgan Chase was handed Bear Stearns and Washington Mutual. Bank of America commandeered Merrill Lynch and Countrywide. And Wells Fargo seized control over the reeling #5 US bank Wachovia. Barclays got a sweetheart deal for the remains of Lehman Brothers.

Former House Banking Committee Chairman Wright Patman (D-TX), declared of Federal Reserve Eight Families owners,“The United States today has in effect two governments. We are the duly constituted government. Then we have an independent, uncontrolled and uncoordinated government in the Federal Reserve System, operating the money powers which are reserved to Congress by the Constitution”.
Since the creation of the Federal Reserve, US debt (mostly owed to the Eight Families) has skyrocketed from $1 billion to nearly $17 trillion today. This far surpasses the total of all Third World country debt combined, debt which is mostly owed to these same Eight Families, who own most all the world’s central banks.

So, now you know! You can't plead ignorance anymore!

Recently the Florida Bishop Kenneth Carter of the United Methodists in Lakeland Florida went on Orlando TV expressing his blessings for the over turn of the Florida Stand Your Ground Law.

This law provides for nothing more than a judicial probable cause hearing to determine if the shooter was justified in his or her actions.

Now researchers have located proof positive that Bishop Kenneth Carter is a PRO-GAY supporter of the massive gay and lesbian movements.

Interested parties can find information regarding Bishop Carter and his activities on behalf of the LEFT to disarm Floridians through his remarks regarding STAND YOUR GROUND on the Lakeland Florida Topix Forum.

All True Methodist Christians should be made aware of what is "ruining the Methodist Churches of Florida."

This is why this lake county sheriff sends out two deputies [Clay Watkins and Chris Huskey] who are running interference for the obama administration by threatening Halbig if he don't stop harrassing CT authorities in the gun grab schemes "something bad is going to happen!" The lake Sheriff and his fellow nazi gestapo would be the first in the State of Florida to act on gun confiscation! You can bet your life on that! In fact he was installed in that position by Jeb Bush for that purpose. Push their nazi movement!
UPDATE: A spokesperson with the Special Licensing and Firearms Unit of the Connecticut Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection told TheBlaze that a letter has been drafted to send to gun owners who are found to be in possession of unregistered semi-automatic rifles deemed illegal by the state’s new gun control law. However,“not a one” letter has been sent out so far.
The spokesperson, who didn’t want to identify herself, refused to comment on the content of the draft letter. When we asked what other action the state plans to take against owners of unregistered so-called “assault rifles, the spokesperson said we should contact the governor’s office because that’s where they get their orders from.
It’s not clear if the letter published by the Capitalism Institute is authentic, though we can confirm a draft letter does exist.

After tens of thousands of defiant gun owners in Connecticut chose not to register their semi-automatic rifles to comply with a hastily-passed gun control law, the state is now taking some action. Officials are reportedly notifying gun owners who submitted late applications that they have one last chance to get rid of their “illegal” weapons.
State officials did accept some gun registration applications that were submitted after the Jan. 4 deadline, however, not all late applications were accepted, the Journal Inquirer reports.
“But rather than turn that information over to prosecutors, state officials are giving the gun owners a chance to get rid of the weapons and magazines,” the report adds.
So gun owners who actually tried to register their guns and magazines, intentionally late or not, are now on the state’s radar for owning guns that became illegal overnight. Owning an unregistered semi-automatic rifle or high-capacity magazine that was legal prior to Jan. 3 is now a class D felony under the new law.
The Capitalism Institute claims to have obtained a copy of the notarized letters Connecticut officials are sending out to late registration applicants:

Care to guess who was the treasurer of Planned Parenthood when it launched its first national fundraising campaign in 1947? It was Prescott Bush, father and grandfather of the two Bush presidents.

Prescott Bush speaks in 1953 about the extreme right wing of the Republican Party - which his offspring has only more extremed!

COMPROMISED is the true story of the Faustian pact that Bill Clinton made as governor of Arkansas. It tells how his unbridled political ambitions and his pledge to create jobs for Arkansas led him to compromise his ideals in exchange for support for his presidential candidacy in 1992. By selling out politically to the Reagan–Bush administration, by giving the Agency free rein to operate a secret training base near the tiny western Arkansas of Mena, and by looking the other way as Arkansas factories turned out untraceable weapons parts for the Nicaraguan Contra “freedom fighters,” the young governor helped create an operation that laundered untold millions of dollars and that enriched Clinton’s political friends and helped finance his campaign fund. The Arkansas-CIA connection became Clinton’s darkest secret, and only now is the tiniest shaft of light being shed on what has become known as the Whitewater Scandal. Coauthor Terry Reed, who helped train Contra pilots in rural Arkansas, became the first person to pull back the shroud on the “Arkansas Connection” long before most people ever heard of Clinton cronies like Webb Hubbell, Clinton’s former associate U.S. attorney-general, who became the first major figure to plead guilty in an ever-widening investigation that is confirming Reed’s disclosures. Former National Security Advisor Bud McFarlane also corroborates Reed’s revelation that former spymaster George Bush was in the center of the Iran-Contra loop, and he, like Reed, paints Bush as a cold-hearted powermonger bent on wrestling the White House away from Ronald Reagan. Reed, who was recruited into the Arkansas operation by Oliver North, reveals in this eyewitness account how the “black operations” in Arkansas worked, from the training of Contra pilots and the manufacture of weapons parts—all in violation of a congressional ban on Contra aid—to the airdrops of cash into Arkansas by CIA operative Barry Seal. Seal disclosed to Reed that more than $9 million a week was dropped from planes onto secret drop zones and later laundered through an investment banking firm whose president had close ties with Clinton.
