ANONYMOUS: BERNANKE IS NEXT
Courtney Comstock | Jun. 12, 2011, 4:55 PM | 13,193 | 41

The most well-known hacker group, Anonymous, uploaded a video message to youtube yesterday calling for Fed Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke to resign, among other things. It's embedded below.

The video begins with Bernanke saying he is 100% confident of his ability to control the income disparity in the U.S. -- the largest of any industrialized country in the world -- on 60 Minutes.

Then it says:

"Democrats have failed us, Republicans have failed us... It is time for us to stand up for ourselves... We must fight back against the organized criminal class... We must launch "operation Empire State rebellion. The operation will commence on June 14th...Operation Empire State Rebellion Engaged."

Anonymous first called for Bernanke to resign on March 12.

The group's latest Youtube video has this description: In this new video release, "as a first step," Anonymous has called for public protests beginning on June 14th, continuing "until Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke steps down." To make their case, they have presented a list of recent scandalous Federal Reserve actions.

The group also provided a Google Map guide to a series of protests, aimed to "* End the campaign finance and lobbying racket* Break up the Fed & Too Big to Fail banks* Enforce RICO laws against organized criminal class* Order Ben Bernanke to step down."

Details of Flag Day rebellion are described on the Google Map site as such:

This Flag Day, Tuesday June 14th, we will launch a non-violent social movement with this list of demands:

* End the campaign finance and lobbying racket

*Break up the Fed & Too Big to Fail banks

* Enforce RICO laws against organized criminal class

* Order Ben Bernanke to step down

It's all hot air unless the mass take real action. Something I highly doubt will ever commence until there is no food on the table and no money to pay the TV man with.

idunno...i feel like if they, and wikileaks, are able to have a serious affect on the companies they're attacking, if they expose enough truths to enough people and if they're able to make the system vulnerable...maybe...just maybe...it can influence people to feel like it's a winnable fight...i think enough people are angry but don't know what direction to go in, who to boycott, who to support, what kind of action to take, what kind of leadership is out there etc. (i know i fit this category):dunno:

Write your local reps. Write your congressmen. Write the white house. Post information on the net for people. Sign petitions and stay aware.
If you're looking to join a militia of some type that is going to go in guns blazing on this thing, you're going to be fueling their fire just the way they want.

This is an information war and right now people aren't engaged in the right information. It's getting better, but it isn't close to where we need to be. When people are aware and become active, we can completely blow down this house of cards they have going.

I just fully don't believe enough people care to care so who fucking cares. :dunno:

woo woo.....
