Secret $150 million surveillance center: Wall Street is watching you
“What was a secret about the operation, and not reported by 60 Minutes to its viewers, despite being well aware of the facts, is that the center is jointly staffed and operated by the NYPD along with the largest Wall Street firms – the same firms under investigation in 50 states for mortgage and foreclosure fraud and widely credited with causing the Nation’s economic collapse. The Wall Street firms that were involuntarily bailed out by the 99% are now policing the 99%.”
Photos of intel center from East News:
“Not only is it unprecedented for corporations under serial and ongoing corruption probes to be allowed to spy on law abiding citizens under the imprimatur of the largest police force in the country, but the legality of the operation by the NYPD itself is highly questionable.”
So it's been confirmed. The owners of America have their own secret installation in place to protect them from their own customers. The facts: Wall Street crooks, operating under the auspices of “financial services” have robbed America of trillions of dollars in savings, investments, pensions, caused an unold amount of stress on state and local governments, caused cuts in education, health services, and other components of the “safety net” which Mitt Romney says is doing just fine.
The Intel Center is nothing short of a fortress, engaging in illegal surveillance, a monument to the fears (and guilt) of Wall Street financial services hoodlums that continue to consolidate power at the expense of the 99%. This boondoggle, though largely financed by those with the most to fear from occupiers, labor unions, homeowners, taxpayers and anyone with a bank account, is a major leap into someone's vision of law and order. But it is actually a monument to fear; the fear of the banking sector being discovered, prosecuted or otherwise held accountable for their crimes and malfeasance.
Protesters gathering at their branches, disseminating the information that clearly indicates racketeering in its purest form, are the only threat to their “business model” which is nothing more than a pay-to-play scheme that favors the looters and crooks.
They most definitely have reason to fear protesters, members of the alternative media, and as we found out from the reactionary SOPA, ACTA and NDAA 2012, the Internet and civilian dissidents. The financial services “industry” is the only sector with the resources and the motive to finance something as absurd and bizarre as this Intel Center; a $150 million monument to Wall Street perceived guilt and the resulting paranoia that goes with scamming America for so long.
The evidence is there. Daily accounts of Wall Street malfeasance describe a clever, but not particularly sophisticated operation that includes forgery mills, falsely valued securities, currency trading, credit swaps, short-selling and other tactics that we can now prove were deliberative and premeditated.
Wall Street crooks are the only people in America that would be compelled to finance such an abomination. Wall Street crooks are the only people that have the influence and resources to finance such a thing. No other sector, no other business model, requires physical defenses, a secret location, advanced technical capability, and a patently illegal mandate to defend itself from its customers and proactively suppress knowledge and free speech.
They should be worried. They can expect more of the same from the alternative media, the newly educated, many mainstream pundits and occasionally those within their own perverse sphere of influence that decide enough is enough. But history tells us that after the rulers build their castles, they also need a mote and a draw bridge. They recruit mercenaries and provocateurs and use their authority to consolidate power. They prepare themselves for war and spend a lot of their treasure on intelligence services and militarization of the police. They invent their own laws for transparent reasons, and wield them as weapons against the underclasses.
To them, security is altogether different than the false fear they try and instill in the general population. To them, security means protecting their castles, their treasures and their stranglehold on power. So this installation, conducting illegal operations against American citizens, their primary victims, is really no surprise.

False flags, paranoia and hot dogs: Are 'mustard' or 'onions' DHS buzzwords?
“It is crystal clear that the gigantic anti-terror apparatus itself, created in the aftermath of 9/11, is now being used against the American people, with citizens being trained to spy on each other under the auspices of Homeland Security’s See Something, Say Something campaign. To illustrate the absurdity of how far this reaches, hot dog sellers at the recent Super Bowl were trained by the TSA to spot terrorists.
“Both the DHS and the FBI are also characterizing mundane behavior, such as paying for a cup of coffee with cash, using a video camera, talking to police officers, wearing hoodies, driving vans, writing on a piece of paper, and using a cell phone recording application, all as indicators of terrorist activity.
“The environment of fear and paranoia that has been created as a result of all this makes fertile ground for the government to stage a crisis or manufacture an emergency situation that will be used to rally the American people around a number of different domestic and geopolitical agendas.”
Prosecutors' weapon of choice: Bogus charges, big bail
“'It would have been like throwing popcorn,' said Sweet Grass. 'They hardly weigh anything, and can’t travel very far.'
“For this gesture, Govinda is facing eight felony charges. None of the seedpods had made contact with an officer, but eight officers 'felt assaulted.' Each of the eight wrote up a separate felony indictment for the same act, along with a misdemeanor charge for wearing a black bandanna around his head.”
“Officers refused to identify themselves on paper, choosing instead to sign each individual citation as 'John Doe.' An officer has written across each indictment form the word 'SERIOUS.'”

Wells Fargo meet: InnerCityProjections
The meeting of Wells Fargo kooks and occupiers did not result in any headline news items, but it was interesting to watch. Yesterday, we saw the Insightoutnews report, and InnerCityProjections has provided another one. ACCE meets today to discuss foreclosures:
Black Bloc: Cops' best friend
“The presence of Black Bloc anarchists—so named because they dress in black, obscure their faces, move as a unified mass, seek physical confrontations with police and destroy property—is a gift from heaven to the security and surveillance state.”
Proposed settlement; Big joke
“The State AG’s are supposed to settle the enormous mortgage mess for a mere $25 billion. The alleged fraud has been reported to be in the neighborhood of $13.5 trillion. Will the crooked big banks who perpetrated this scam on America get a free pass in the so-called 'robo-signing' mess?”
