How can you ensure that the interests of TBTF Wall Street mega banks and the military-intelligence-industrial complex remain aligned? Create a revolving door of course.
This is a trend I’ve been following over the past several years. Below are a couple of notable examples:
Now for the latest. From the Wall Street Journal:
J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. will bring on Gen. Raymond T. Odierno, the recently retired chief of staff of the Army, as a senior adviser to the firm, the bank announced Thursday.
Starting Sept. 1, Gen. Odierno will advise the bank’s board and Chief Executive James Dimon on topics such as the risks of doing business in various countries, technology and physical and cybersecurity.
At J.P. Morgan, Gen. Odierno will help structure the firm’s leadership training programs, sit on the firm’s military and veterans affairs council, and will represent the bank in meetings with government officials and policy makers.
JP Morgan has a “military and veterans affairs council?” Why not, they’re the real government anyway.
J.P. Morgan isn’t the first bank to tap members of the U.S. military for their expertise. Wells Fargo & Co., the nation’s largest bank by market value, in February named Suzanne M. Vautrinot, a retired Major General and Commander in the U.S. Air Force, to its board. ….
Western pharmaceutical companies have been opening up in Asia in the last few years introducing vaccination programs , and unsurprisingly autism rates have soared.
Saigon Tiep Thi newspaper Wednesday quoted a study from the National Hospital of Pediatrics as saying that the number of children diagnosed with autism at the Hanoi-based hospital’s Physiotherapy Department in 2007 was 50 times higher than in 2000
Korea is another country where autism rates have risen since the introduction of vaccination programs. Autism rates are as high as 1:38.
This study is further evidence that autism transcends cultural, geographic, and ethnic boundaries and that autism is a major global public health concern, not limited to the Western world
The following videos are doctors who decided to do their own research on vaccinations and decided to speak out against them. ….

While everyone is distracted by a certain orange presidential candidate, a river turned orange in Colorado. The Animas River disaster happened when contractors working for the EPA accidentally released a toxic stew from an old abandoned gold mine. Before we go and dismantle the EPA and eliminate government entirely, let’s take a look at why the deadly mining waste was there in the first place.
Thanks to General Mining Act of 1872, we’ve been giving away our public lands for over 140 years and leaving a legacy of mining waste behind. Actually, it’s more like we’ve been selling the land at 1872 prices and then giving away precious rocks like gold, silver and uranium. Compare two to five dollars an acre with the current price of gold, uranium or platinum and you have an idea of the bad deal the people of the United States have been getting for over a century. No royalties, no environmental provisions, no ability to fund cleanups after inevitable disasters happen, you get the idea.
Sure, someone screwed up and uncorked the Gold King Mine’s river of toxic sludge, but that’s bound to happen when we have over 500,000 abandoned and inactive mines across the country. Methinks it’s time to change course when a law signed by Ulysses S. Grant still gives away our natural resources to mining corporations, foreign and domestic.

In this video Luke Rudkowski and Journalist Tim Pool discuss all the insane world of revelations at Defcon and Blackhat in Las Vegas Nevada this year. They go over unspoken truths and vulnerabilities that have been discovered but not openly discussed. If there’s one thing learned from the biggest hacker conferences in the world, it’s that the majority of people are unaware how hackers can do anything.
