Download Hour1 Download Hour2This week, we examine the topic of regulatory capture in the US financial sector. We hear of some smoking guns which are hidden in plain sight - the blindingly obvious leads not properly investigated by the SEC, the FBI, the US Justice Department or any agency of the US government. Our main presentation is a 90 minute piece from lawyer and SEC whistleblower Gary Aguirre is introduced by an outline of the take down of Bear Stearns from DeepCapture.com - which although produced in 2009 has enduring relevance for anyone seeking to better understand the importance of the Deep State in the Financial 'Crisis'.
Our main piece this time, from SEC whistleblower and investigator, Gary Aguirre, tells in detail how he gradually became a whistleblower just because of his determination not to be a party to criminal wrongdoing. We hear how he was victimized by the the SEC, which used the corporate media to try to undermine his credibility while using an array of mendacious legal tactics to deprive him of the evidence he needed. Ultimately, we hear how good fortune combined with his own legal skills - and an anonymous 'deep throat'-style informer - to prevail over the SEC and secure a legal judgment in his favor. His experience as a whistleblower fits with the analysis of episode 715 that whistleblower protection is worse than useless. In the ensuing Q & A, he notes that had he not been rich, lucky and a skilled lawyer, then his chances of successfully being rewarded as a whistleblower might have been very different.
Thanks to DeepCapture.com for the piece on Bear Sterns,
