A really good bit from Max Keiser that puts a lot together on what the NSA spying is really about-- the big banks:
"Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss economic espionage and, perhaps,
sabotage by the NSA against the corporations and innovators of
competitor nations. In the second half, Max interviews author,
journalist and filmmaker, Greg Palast of GregPalast.com, about the Larry
Summers' secret 'End Game' memo and the decriminalization of what were
once financial crimes."
My personal theory is these gun massacres are not about gun control at all, but events just waiting to go off when the controllers want, to distract from news coming out that the elites don't like. This story about the NSA spying on financial transactions, is such a story, imo. Which goes along with this: The NSA Is Also Grabbing Millions Of Credit Card Records
Also Emptywheel on this-- pretty weedy stuff.
