Over the past several years I have discovered a lot of great documentaries on the Internet. The frustrating part was trying to find them again for friends. Thus I started Video Journal(s) where I'm trying to weave the videos/documentaries into comprehensive stories. This Video Journal is about corruption, crony capitalism and corporate/Wall Street GREED.

I don't think people understand what Wall Street's GREED has gotten us into. Sure we all know about the 700 billion dollar TARP bail-out, and the 18 trillion dollars national debt.  But, I don't think people are aware of all the trillions of dollars the FED (Federal Reserve) has loaned to the Wall Street Banks, which doesn't trickle down to main street, or the 700 trillion-to-1.2 quadrillion dollar derivatives bubble that the World's banks are sitting on (see the Financial Crisis News Magazine).

Bernie Sanders Tears Into Donald Trump's 'Disaster' Of A Climate Change Order
HP | Lee Moran | 03/29/17

"It is beyond belief that we have the leader of the most powerful country on earth not believing in science."

"President [Donald] Trump's anti-environmental executive orders are a disaster," Sanders says in the clip posted to Twitter on Tuesday. "They are a threat to the future of this country, and to the future of the world."

"It is beyond belief that we have the leader of the most powerful country on earth, not believing in science," he continues in the video, which intersperses clips of him talking alongside captioned facts that disprove Trump's claims. ... Read more

Golden Boy Tarnished: Trump Keeps Giving Jared Kushner More Jobs -- but Is He Any Good at Any of Them?
magazine | author | date

Does he wash the cars, too? Kushner apparently does everything in the Trump administration -- when he's not skiing.

As it turns out Trump's actually a yuuuge believer in taking vacations. He has been to his Florida resort seven times already ($3,000,000.00 at taxpayer expense) and last weekend the White House tried to pretend the president was having meetings at his Virginia golf club. It was later revealed that he was hitting the links again.

So it's not surprising that Trump was quick to forgive his favorite daughter and son-in-law for their little getaway. Not only did he forgive Jared; on Monday he put him in charge of a bold new initiative to run the country like a business with what the Washington Post described as a "SWAT team of strategic consultants" that "will be staffed by former business executives." If the first couple of months of the Trump administration are any indication of what that might look like, we're in for a bumpy ride. As Salon's Simon Maloy observed: ... Read more

The Ugly Numbers of Trauma, Exile and Death Caused by U.S. Wars and Interventions in the Past 75 Years
AlterNet | John Dower / TomDispatch | 03/28/17

The casualty list is staggering.

On February 17, 1941, almost 10 months before Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor, Life magazine carried a lengthy essay by its publisher, Henry Luce, entitled "The American Century." The son of Presbyterian missionaries, born in China in 1898 and raised there until the age of 15, Luce essentially transposed the certainty of religious dogma into the certainty of a nationalistic mission couched in the name of internationalism. ...

The Violent American Century: War and Terror Since World War II by John W. Dower (April 2017)

World War II marked the apogee of industrialized "total war." Great powers savaged one another. Hostilities engulfed the globe. Mobilization extended to virtually every sector of every nation. Air war, including the terror bombing of civilians, emerged as a central strategy of the victorious Anglo-American powers. The devastation was catastrophic almost everywhere, with the notable exception of the United States, which exited the strife unscathed and unmatched in power and influence. The death toll of fighting forces plus civilians worldwide was staggering.

The Violent "American Century" addresses the U.S.-led transformations in war conduct and strategizing that followed 1945--beginning with brutal localized hostilities, proxy wars, and the nuclear terror of the Cold War, and ending with the asymmetrical conflicts of the present day. The military playbook now meshes brute force with a focus on non-state terrorism, counterinsurgency, clandestine operations, a vast web of overseas American military bases, and--most touted of all--a revolutionary new era of computerized "precision" warfare. By contrast to World War II, postwar death and destruction has been comparatively small. By any other measure, it has been appalling -- and shows no sign of abating.

The winner of numerous national prizes for his historical writings, including the Pulitzer and the National Book Award, Dower draws heavily on hard data and internal U.S. planning and pronouncements in this concise analysis of war and terror in our time. In doing so, he places U.S. policy and practice firmly within the broader context of global mayhem, havoc, and slaughter since World War II--always with bottom-line attentiveness to the human costs of this legacy of unceasing violence.

Trump takes biggest swing yet at Obama climate legacy
Politico | Alex Guillen | 03/27/17

President Donald Trump will direct the federal government on Tuesday to begin dismantling his predecessor's most significant climate change policies, with a sweeping directive telling agencies to stop trying to reduce the carbon pollution of electric utilities, oil and gas drillers and coal miners.

The executive order Trump will sign represents his biggest blow yet to former President Barack Obama's climate legacy. But it does not go as far as some conservatives would like to dismantle the EPA's authority to regulate greenhouse gases, nor will it begin to separate the U.S. from a landmark international climate accord -- two areas of intense disagreement within the administration. ...

Mar-a-Lago can't release visitor logs -- because it doesn't keep them
Politico | Darren Samuelsohn | 03/28/17

On Friday night, guests streamed into Mar-a-Lago, the president's self-proclaimed "southern White House," for the annual Palm Beach GOP Lincoln Day Dinner. All they had to do to get into the seaside retreat, where the first lady and the president's youngest son were vacationing for spring break, was buy a $300 ticket.

They didn't have to submit to the kinds of rigorous background checks required if they'd been entering the White House in Washington. And there were no weapon screenings or bomb-sniffing dogs checking vehicles of the sort that have long been routine at public restaurants or other places where the president or first lady is present. ...

Now... Who Own the Derivative Time Bomb?

Five Banks Account For 96% Of The $250 Trillion In Outstanding US Derivative Exposure; Is Morgan Stanley Sitting On An FX Derivative Time Bomb?
Zero Hedge | Author | 09/24/11

The latest quarterly report from the Office Of the Currency Comptroller is out and as usual it presents in a crisp, clear and very much glaring format the fact that the top 4 banks in the US now account for a massively disproportionate amount of the derivative risk in the financial system. Specifically, of the $250 trillion in gross notional amount of derivative contracts outstanding (consisting of Interest Rate, FX, Equity Contracts, Commodity and CDS) among the Top 25 commercial banks (a number that swells to $333 trillion when looking at the Top 25 Bank Holding Companies), a mere 5 banks (and really 4) account for 95.9% of all derivative exposure (HSBC replaced Wells as the Top 5th bank, which at $3.9 trillion in derivative exposure is a distant place from #4 Goldman with $47.7 trillion). The top 4 banks: JPM with $78.1 trillion in exposure, Citi with $56 trillion, Bank of America with $53 trillion and Goldman with $48 trillion, account for 94.4% of total exposure. As historically has been the case, the bulk of consolidated exposure is in Interest Rate swaps ($204.6 trillion), followed by FX ($26.5TR), CDS ($15.2 trillion), and Equity and Commodity with $1.6 and $1.4 trillion, respectively.
