Junious Ricardo Stanton How Safe Is Your Bank?
“In a panic set of moves, the Fed slashed interest rates from 5.25% to 2%. This was the fastest, steepest drop on record. Ironically, the Fed chairman spoke of inflation concerns the entire drop down. Bernanke clearly cannot tell the truth. He does not have to. Actions speak louder than words. FDIC Chairman Sheila Bair said the FDIC is looking for ways to shore up its depleted deposit fund,…Continue

How do you convince a person that his perceptions that he believes to be his very own, are in fact the results of a massive deceptive psychological manipulation scheme? How do you convince him that his mind has been turned upside down and inside out while his mind is within that very state? This is the dilemma and immense challenge presented when trying to reveal to those Black people, whom has been so deliberately inundated -- through a totally white… Continue
Today, in carrying out many of its social-engineering agendas, the United States Government now conducts planned campaigns of extensive strategic psychological operations through the national media to influence and direct the perception and climate of the nation towards its governmental objectives. Its unrelenting committment towards maintaining its white dominance and control resulted in the U.S. Government using these same proven methods of strategic psychological manipulation of its Black… Continue
In order for we African Americans to overcome the profound feelings of hopelessness, confusion, and self hatred that still overwhelmingly plagues millions within our communities, we must synergized our energies and efforts towards countering the effects of the United State’s ongoing governmental mass media psychosocial treatment of us that is deliberately designed to render such disunity and confusion among our race as a means of ensuring that its white dominance and control is maintained. This… Continue

Junious Ricardo Stanton Random Thoughts About Current Events
“Think about the long-term implications of the statement above, which references a doubling of the already off the charts U.S. debt burden and a mention of America possibly losing our AAA credit rating. While yesterday’s government intervention into the Fannie and Freddie (GSEs) situation may be good for traders and short-term market conditions, it is most definitely bad news for…Continue

The Criminality and Fraud Continues
“Fannie and Freddie Shares Slide, Dragging Down Markets Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac shares plummeted again on Friday — and the broader stock market followed suit — as concern mounted that the government will be forced to take over the beleaguered mortgage finance companies, which some investors fear are at risk of default. Even after a week of unprecedented losses, the companies’ declines…Continue
Since we have seen this sort of "editing" at work, the entire situation should be suspected... as well as the media being held accountable for ignoring it.

Junious Ricardo Stanton 1929 Redo?
“‘History doesn't repeat itself,’ Mark Twain said, ‘but it does rhyme.’ The similarities between economic conditions in 1929 and 2008 rhyme like hickory, dickory, dock. As early as 1935, "brain truster" Rexford Tugwell identified the root cause of the Great Depression as the failure 'to pass on a fair share of the spectacular productivity gains of the 1920s' to both labor and consumers. An enduring…Continue
