In an ideal world the bankers would already be in jail and their assets would have been seized to make restitution to the taxpayers, savers and pensioners from whom they stole tens of trillions of dollars.
Webster Tarpley correctly noted that the nationwide police repression at Occupy Wall Street protests in the US after came after Adbusters and Occupy Wall Street endorsed a Wall Street Sales tax.
Tarpley has also been actively trying to steer Occupy Wall Street towards a Wall Street Sales Tax which has been called a Robin Hood Tax and was originally known as the Tobin tax. It is tax on financial transactions. Tarpley recommends 1%.
Tarpley is right when he says it was the Wall Street Sales Tax that brought out the police. Local cops have been telling homeless people they will not be arrested for sleeping outdoors if they go to the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations. This makes the protestors look bad on TV which is all that matters.
Tarpley is wrong on the Robin Hood tax on financial transactions because after the bankers are arrested and their assets seized, it will be a tax on our pensions and our savings.
I would ban all Credit Default Swaps and most derivatives so all that remains to be taxed would be our pensions and international trade. Please note that the first order of business after the bankers and those who are accessories to their crimes have been arrested would be to seize their assets so we can cancel all government debts and fully fund pensions with assets rather than with government bonds.
Why would you want to tax 1% of the transactions when you can own 100% of their assets? To put that in proper perspective Catherine Austin Fitts has said the elite make at least 2 trillion annually in investment income from the money they stole from us. And they have a lot more ‘legitimate’ money which they won’t need in prison.
And, when I say seize their assets, I am including all of the Foundations controlled by the Bilderbergers, the Council on Foreign Relations, their affiliated and their criminal co-conspirators.
Tarpley has mentioned specifically that he wants to tax foreign exchange transactions. As soon as the CDS and derivatives are gone, a tax on foreign exchange will be a tax on international trade. I would support a tariff to protect American manufacturing. But a tax on all foreign exchange would make American exports more expensive. This is not something we need to do in a nation with a 23% unemployment rate.
Tarpley also would like to tax the sales of stock shares. But after we seize the tens of trillions of dollars the bankers stole from us we will be taxing our pension funds.
Tarpley has said many times he wants to issue a trillion dollars in 50 year zero interest bonds. This makes absolutely no sense in an ideal world where the FED has been seized and we issue a non-interest bearing currency. Why issue bonds that have to be repaid when we could issue a currency that is interest free and does not require payment?
The Occupy Wall Street movement began with Anonymous. The first person they contacted was David DeGraw who seemed to hang out at Zero Hedge. It was picked up by Adbusters. Then Foundations owned by the elite sent in operatives to steer them into dead ends. In Spain the operatives convinced the students at the protests that they could do nothing until they reached 100% agreement in their general assembly. These students were called the idignatos. Two of the idignatos were sent to New York to infiltrate the Occupy Wall Street movement and have them adopt the Spanish idea of a general assembly.
When the movement finally demanded action, Adbusters came out for a Tobin tax on financial transactions. This drove the police into the protests with tear gas and rubber bullets. The European Bilderbergers support a Tobin tax but the English and American members do not. The Europeans are inside the Eurozone and do not care about taxes on foreign exchange.
I listen to Tarpley but completely ignore his advice. He used to work for Lyndon LaRouche. And his wife works for an Israeli firm. He always deflects criticism of Israel saying they are not very important. He is Jewish. He knows history and some European languages very well. He has some good sources of information but I do not accept his interpretations as readily as the facts he presents.
