Larry Flynt: The American Government Has Been Taken Over By Wall St.

by on Aug.21, 2009, under The General Pursuit

Larry Flynt, the publisher of Hustler magazine, has penned an article on Huffington Post that contends that corporations and the wealthy elite actually controls the U.S. government.    Check out these excerpts:

It is this group of powerful elites, the people President Franklin D. Roosevelt called “economic royalists,” who choose our elected officials — indeed, our very form of government. Both Democrats and Republicans dance to the tune of their corporate masters.

They have no shame. They don’t care what you and I think about them. Henry Kissinger refers to us as “useless eaters.”

Flynt also explains that Wall Street bankers have used the government to fleece the American people:

The reason Wall Street was able to game the system the way it did — knowing that they would become rich at the expense of the American people (oh, yes, they most certainly knew that) — was because the financial elite had bribed our legislators to roll back the protections enacted after the Stock Market Crash of 1929.

Congress gutted the Glass-Steagall Act, which separated commercial lending banks from investment banks, and passed the Commodity Futures Modernization Act, which allowed for self-regulation with no oversight. The Securities and Exchange Commission subsequently revised its rules to allow for even less oversight

He even quotes one of the elite, David Rockefeller, from his 2002 memoirs:

“Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure — one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”

That’s right, Rockefeller proudly admits to working against the best interests of the United States.

Flynt also points out that Thomas Jefferson warned us about these bankers:

“If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation, and then by deflation, the banks and the corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their father’s conquered.”

Flynt is right – Americans are lost in the false left-right paradigm, while those who can, like Goldman Sachs, fleece us for as much as they can get away with – using the Government to help them bilk the very people that it is supposed to represent.

Even if you aren’t a fan of Hustler magazine, you should read this article because as an American, you need to wake up and realize what is happening to your their country.
