Last weekend, I watched a fabulous podcast featuring two of the top “good, smart guys” in our business – Europe’s intrepid anti-bankster, Max Keiser, and “GERALD CELENTE, PATRIOT.”  Given the exponential increase in information I am exposed to, the steep learning curve over my “TEN YEARS OF HEAVEN AND HELL,” and a very busy schedule, I don’t need to watch as much as I used to.  However, some people – such as the “Ranting Andy-esque” Celente – are just plain entertaining, providing MUST SEE commentary for anyone serious about learning the TRUTH…

On the Edge with Gerald Celente – July 22nd, 2012

In it, Celente mentioned the term “TOBACCO MOMENT” – a phrase I had not heard until this week, when it was referenced in an article about the exploding amount and exposure of MASSIVE financial scandals…

“The banking industry’s tobacco moment”

As described in the article above, “TOBACCO MOMENT” refers to the point in the late 1990s when tobacco litigation – regarding cumulative past offenses – became so widespread and public, the industry KNEW it would lose its ability to control public PERCEPTION and avoid massive payouts.  Eventually, the tobacco industry was forced to pay $200 billion in settlements – which so scarred its reputation, bellwether Phillip Morris changed its name…

…just as my former employer – Salomon Smith Barney – ironically dropped its name in 2003 due to Salomon’s association with scandal…

Salomon Brothers – Wikipedia

…when in hindsight, the most notable Salomon scandals – Treasury bid rigging and banking ties to Enron and Worldcom, to name a few – were petty compared to those of its new namesake, Citigroup Capital Markets!

Another Citigroup Scandal: Business as Usual for Wall Street …

One might interpret Celente’s comment in regard to realization of the gargantuan sums Wall Street will likely have to pay to disburse to settle lawsuits related to MF Global, LIE-BOR, and a slew of other, high-profile scandals…

Could Libor-gate Lawsuits Sink Wall Street?

However, MONEY is not the real issue here, as the government will BAIL OUT such sins ad infinitumovertly or covertly – until such action is no longer feasible.  The bigger – and FAR MORE important ramification of such misdeeds is the GLOBAL realization that Wall Street is not only a criminal operation, but directly colluding with MAJOR governments, such as the U.S…

…and UK…

Turner and King face up to Liborgate questions

However, the operative words – regarding the government’s ability to bail out henchman banks with PRINTED MONEY – are “until such actions are no longer feasible.”  In other words, “Tobacco Moment” should be compared less to when the cash-rich tobacco industry realized it would have to give a portion back, and more to when the ENTIRE WORLD realized smoking does in fact cause cancer.

Philip Morris Admits Evidence Shows Smoking Causes Cancer …

Translated to the financial industry, the moment the ENTIRE WORLD realizes Wall Street is a CRIMINAL operation, robbing the public blind with the help of the government.  For tobacco, smoking’s connection to cancer was well documented for years before the masses accessed the “logic” centers of their brain – which is EXACTLY what is happening today regarding the its understanding of the connection between Wall Street and white collar crime.

Heist of the Century – Wall Street’s role in the Financial Crisis

For months, I have spoken of the “mainstreaming” of commentary regarding Wall Street crime, a “rubicon” that – once passed – should spell the END to its ability to manipulate markets, steal client money, and – generally speaking – leach off society like parasites.  Such diminished power will enable reality to settle over public perception – and corrupted financial markets – accelerating the commencement of the END GAME, the destruction of the fraudulent, GLOBAL fiat currency system.
