"Inside Job" : The US is a Kleptocracy

October 22, 2012


Kleptocracy: "Rule by Thieves"

A 2010 Oscar-winning documentary on the "credit crisis" shows how the banking industry preys on Americans like wolves prey on sheep. They have placed their errand boys in the White House and there is nothing to stop them. 

"The goyim are a flock of sheep and we are their wolves. And you know what happens when the wolves get hold of the flock?"  Protocols of the Elders of Zion - 11

Kleptocracy, alternatively cleptocracy or kleptarchy, (from Greek: κλέπτης - kleptēs, "thief"[1] and κράτος - kratos, "power, rule", hence "rule by thieves") is a form of political and government corruption where the government exists to increase the personal wealth and political power of its officials and the ruling class at the expense of the wider population.

by Henry Makow Ph.D. 

"Inside Job," the film about the 2007 credit crisis is not an Illuminati cover-up or spin job. 

Rather, it lays out our predicament in stark terms. The  banking-government complex is a kleptocracy run by the Illuminati central bankers. They are out to steal our money, and enslave us to ensure we never rebel. They instigated 9-11 and the "war on terror" as a pretext to establish a DHS-FEMA-run police state. 

Director Charles Ferguson shows how Illuminati Jews and their Freemason flunkies made millions by creating a bubble in derivatives based on subprime mortgages. After they sold these dubious products to their own clients, they took out bets that the bubble will burst, and no doubt made sure it did. 

Then when insurance giant AIG, who underwrote these bets (called "credit default swaps") went belly up, they forced the American taxpayer to bail out AIG and make them whole. Not 50 cents on the dollar but $1 on the dollar. 

The foxes are minding the henhouse. Hank Paulson, the former CEO of Goldman Sachs was the US Treasury Secretary.  Goldman Sachs made $20 billion from their AIG credit default swaps.

Banker-owned politicians like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi threatened chaos and martial law if US taxpayers didn't make the bankers whole.

Americans were put on the hook for between $2-20 trillion, no one knows for sure, as banks around the world were salvaged. 

The documentary shows how this behaviour is part of a pattern of depravity. Bankers who rip off clients by day engage in drug-fuelled sex orgies with prostitutes by night. 

The film shows that Americans can be divided into two classes: the wolves and the sheep. The vast majority are the sheep who get fleeced.  Apart from the bankers themselves, there is a whole class of regulators, journalists, academics and other professionals who get rich by obscuring the fraud. The film delights in showing the lame excuses of the "ruling class."

The politicians are the biggest whores. Clinton and Bush paved the way for the credit crisis by gutting regulation. Obama has done nothing to bring the bankers to justice or prevent a future meltdown.

Yes, a small number of honest courageous people tried in vain to warn the public and prevent the catastrophe. They were ignored or overruled. 

Even after the meltdown,an Oscar, and a 98% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, "Inside Job" made all of $8 million.

In contrast, Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9-11, which blames the Saudis instead of the Mossad-CIA for 9-11, made $222 million, the highest grossing documentary in history.

The Illuminati control film distribution and hype.  

Another example of this kleptocracy-in-action is the Bernard Madoff scandal. Another excellent documentary, Chasing Madoff (2011)  shows that the banks were making so much money by lining up the sheep, they didn't care if it was a ponzi scheme or not.  The SEC ("regulators") adopted the bankers' attitude.


The biggest issue facing America wasn't even discussed in the Presidential Debates. This is the "fiscal cliff." If these $700 billion in spending cuts and tax increases are implemented, there may be a recession. 

There is speculation that Obama will veto them unless there are tax increases for the rich. Surely, tonight's debate should have been devoted to this rather than "foreign policy." 

Much of the "debt" doesn't need to be repaid. It was created out of thin air by the central bankers. Paying interest on it is the main profit center for the Kleptocracy and heart of the banking fraud.

If the GOP win control of the Presidency and Congress, all classes of assets will be under pressure. This is why I think Obama will win. The "47%" will come to his rescue, plus another 5% who can smell the coffee. 

Either way, the Kleptocracy will continue to thrive.


"Inside Job" makes it clear that true democratic change is not possible in the USA. Elections are a charade designed to legitimize the Kleptocracy. 

But as long as the sheep want to be wolves, and hope to escape or profit personally, the Kleptocracy will continue. 

Some sheep are waking up. Ninety per cent of Americans are dissatisfied with the performance of Congress, an all-time lowAnd an estimated 90 million Americans will not vote Nov 6. 

For the price of a few fighter jets, election campaigns could be publicly-financed and the US would be a real democracy. 
Instead, "democracy" is a sham which enables the Kleptocracy.

As always your website has once again brought its readers the real story behind the events that surround us.

Thank you for persistence.

Unfortunately the vast majority of the American and Canadian people live in the Hologram Matrix brought to us via the media.
I wonder how long it will be before the TPTB will turn its agents of war, destruction, and death on us.

I hope enough truth-tellers survive the chaos.

Peter said (October 23, 2012):

Imagine if you will how much of a chore it must be for the owners of power in America to give the public these bawbles and distractions to think about.

How much work must it be?

Recently i have seen the videos of Ed Chiarini aka DallasGoldBug and have been amazed at the wholesale newsfraud on tv engulfing the minds of the Americans and the world via staged news stories like the Gabrielle Giffords shooting and the Aurora movie massacre all of it ENTIRELY FAKE. While this is going on we seldom bear witness to the wholesale theft of all wealth from the economy which is the focus of this story. Surely the frame of public perception must gain some traction in reality soon.

No comment, just want to say this is a beautiful article. Unfortunately, I've watched people around me submerged in a weird phenomenon of long term memory loss - It's as if their memory erases every six months, and it's getting shorter.

I watched Romney and Obama lie their asses off with their bare faces hanging out for two hours tonight.

To those who still retain enough brain cells to knock together to read this article with comprehension, I salute you. These days it's not quantity that matters, it's quality;

I also recommend a follow up to "Inside Job".

(note- Enron was the 'largest US bankruptcy BEFORE 2008. It was dwarfed by what's gone down since.
People should have taken the hint back in 2002. )

Marcos said (October 22, 2012):

In any modern country, banks can't force you to sign a contract for financing a new car. Banks can't make you get a loan against your will.
However, governments can put you in jail if you don't pay taxes, or can just charge you taxes when you buy rice and beans.

Take a look at the statistics: all the major countries in the world suffer from huge internal debt. Public debt is the way banks use governments to force you into borrowing money and enslaving you and your descendants forever. It is the same old plan the Rothschilds use since the 18th century, when they financed wars and bankrupted kings.

No government should be allowed to spend more than what it can raise in taxes. A simple measure like that would solve 90% of our economic woes.

Robert said (October 22, 2012):

"As long as the sheep want to be wolves, and hope to escape or profit personally, this pattern will continue."

The first stage of the plan to dominate the population has long been to substitute pursuit of money for faith in God,
with its concomitant devotion to the well-being of all people. The primacy of pursuing money is inculcated in
children in school, which is viewed not as training in independent, critical thinking but rather as preparation for
social compliance and getting a "job".

Unlike those who have bought into venality, people who rigorously apply a God-standard on their lives are inherently
intractable vis-à-vis the temporal authorities who are empowered to manage large pools of money. Being poor
candidates for cooperation with central planning, they are slated for either re-education or extinction.

Deadeye Dick said (October 22, 2012):

Overall, a very good article and an important film.

You say the "fiscal cliff" wasn't discussed in the debates. This
isn't exactly true – the 3 debates have featured a number of
questions about the fate of Social Security, Medicare and other
programs (with VP moderator Martha Raddatz prefacing a question with "Both Medicare and Social Security are going broke." This is false:

There are a few issues going on here:

1. The "fiscal cliff" is very much on the agenda, but since both
parties agree to sacrifice working Americans to the banks, it's not
going to be brought to their attention. Proposals have ranged from the savage (Ron Paul) to the sell-out (Obama) There have been "illuminati" feature films like "IOUSA" warming up certain segments of the population to this topic. But the masses get Honey Boo Boo and the NFL so they don't ask the wrong questions (ie "why are you taking away my tax deductions and retirement but continuing to pay AIG?")

2. The time for action is the congressional "lame duck session" in
late December, a popular time for unpopular legislation. People
should get involved in the United Front Against Austerity
(, which is at the moment the only group
organizing to stop this from happening.

3. As you rightly say, this debt owed to Wall Street is an
illusion, and can be canceled, shredded and restored to the
Treasury's balance sheet. In the same way, the FDIC has the
Constitutional power to seize the assets of a huge bank like
JPMorgan Chase, run them through bankruptcy, remove derivatives from their balance sheet and re-sell their real assets in an auction.

The only real threats are from hit teams taking out politicians and
technical experts, but even that won't be enough if there's
sufficient public awareness and pressure.

What we need (the other focus of the UFAA) is public mobilization
behind a focused set of economic reforms, in the spirit of the New Deal. These would include: Nationalization of the Federal Reserve System; Free and cheap credit for industry, infrastructure and agriculture; Cancellation of TARP and re-regulation of the financial system (Glass Steagall; Protections for industry and agriculture (tariff, higher minimum wage, parity price for farms); a better Social Safety net (ie public option for health insurance) and similar items.

An economy like the US' or Canada's should be based heavily on high-wage, advanced industry, mining, agriculture,
forestry and similar productive fields. NOT financial services,
real estate and the so-called service industry.

If any Ron Paul fanboys want to accuse me of being a socialist for
advocating effective government, save your energy and vote for
Romney and Paul "Ayn" Ryan. You'll get exactly what you want.

If Wall Street was truly omnipotent, they wouldn't even bother with the illusion of elections, voting, propaganda, etc. They don't have enough real power and need us to cut our own throats, which will only work if we're stupid enough to share their views. If we unite behind a mass, disciplined fight for the right program, as outlined above, the masses have greater collective power than the oligarchs, and can in time restore a decent system of government.

Mike said (October 22, 2012):

Another short essay by Henry that nails it.

Many have known or suspected this for a long time now. The problem is the mindset of the general public, which refuses to believe what is really happening, and furnishes absolutely no basis for a unified resistance.

The logic of the collective public is not intellectually based but emotionally based, tied to conditioning and genetic tendencies. The first protocol mentions 'superficiality', which gives a clue as to what must play itself out.
