Rep. Kanjorski: $550 Billion Disappeared in "Electronic Run On the Banks"

At 2 minutes, 20 seconds into this C-Span video clip, US Rep. Paul Kanjorski of Pennsylvania explains how the Federal Reserve told Congress members about a "tremendous draw-down of money market accounts in the United States, to the tune of $550 billion dollars."

According to Kanjorski, this electronic transfer occured over the period of an hour or two.

Here is a transcript of what Kanjorski says in the video:



"On Thursday Sept 15, 2008 at roughly 11 AM The Federal Reserve noticed a tremendous draw down of money market accounts in the USA to the tune of $550 Billion dollars in a matter of an hour or two.

Money was being removed electronically.

The treasury tried to help with $150 Billion.

But could not stem the tide.

It was an electronic run on the banks

The treasury intervened but had they not closed down the accounts they estimated that by 2 PM that afternoon. Within 3 hours. $5.5 Trillion would have been withdrawled and collapsed and within 24 hours the world economy."



Kanjorski does not provide further details.

Borderland Beat: Bloody Zacatecas: 11 die


Borderland Beat: Bloody Zacatecas: 11 die: By Chris Covert Rantburg.com A total of 11 individuals have been killed in ongoing grug and gang related violence in Zacatecas state since ...


I've recently been working at and with the Movimiento por la Paz con Justicia y Dignidad Binacional Encuentro in Mexico City, meeting fellow peace and justice activists, and making important connections in Mexico, as well as from the US and Canada, so that we can all work together in order to stop the drug war hyper-violence in Mexico, as well as drug war related violence in the US. 

The Binational Meeting was very productive and encouraging for all involved and I ask you to please join us in ending the so-called "war on drug" by spreading the word about Movimiento por la Paz con Justicia y Dignidad (Movement for Peace with Justice and Dignity (MJPD) and Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (L.E.A.P.) which are working together to end the violence in Mexico and prohibition in the United States. 

Please share the links below with your friends. We have a lot of work to to to stop the violence, end prohibition, get justice for the many families whose loved ones have been disappeared or murdered, and to attain dignity for the peoples in Mexico and those especially oppressed by the violence and the injustice system in the United States: the poor and minorities. 

It's time for a new paradigm, so that we can deal wisely and justly with the drug use issue and the drug abuse problem. 

Prohibition, especially of marijuana, has and is causing more deaths and violence than is the use and abuse of drugs, which is a public health and welfare issue, and the 40 year long "war on drugs" has come to a failed and bloody conclusion. It's time to end prohibition, and end the violence and injustice NOW!

My most read blog post last year - Only the American People Can Stop the Violence in Mexico! - http://ajmacdonaldjr.wordpress.com/2011/08/31/only-the-american-people-can-stop-the-violence-in-mexico/

Recientemente he estado trabajando en y con el Movimiento por la Paz con Justicia y Dignidad Encuentro Binacional en la ciudad de México, reunidos en paz compañero y activistas por la justicia y hacer conexiones importantes en México, así como de los EE.UU. y Canadá, que por lo que todos podemos trabajar juntos para poner fin a la guerra contra las drogas hiper-violencia en México, así como la violencia relacionada con la guerra de drogas en los EE.UU..

La Reunión Binacional fue muy productivo y alentador para todos los participantes y les pido que por favor, únase a nosotros para poner fin a la llamada "guerra contra las drogas" por dar a conocer el Movimiento por la Paz con Justicia y Dignidad (Movimiento por la Paz con Justicia y Dignidad (MJPD) y Aplicación de la Ley Against Prohibition (LEAP) que están trabajando juntos para poner fin a la violencia en México y la prohibición en los Estados Unidos.

Por favor, comparta los siguientes enlaces a tus amigos. Tenemos un montón de trabajo para a detener la violencia, la prohibición final, obtener justicia para las muchas familias cuyos seres queridos han sido desaparecidos o asesinados, y alcanzar la dignidad de los pueblos de México y especialmente aquellos oprimidos por la violencia y la injusticia sistema en los Estados Unidos: los pobres y las minorías.

Es hora de un nuevo paradigma, para que podamos tratar con prudencia y justicia con el tema del consumo de drogas y el problema del abuso de drogas.

Prohibición, especialmente de la marihuana, ha sido y es la causa más muertes y la violencia que es el uso y abuso de drogas, que es un problema de salud pública y bienestar social, y el 40 el año "guerra contra las drogas" ha llegado a una conclusión fallida y sangrienta . Es hora de poner fin a la prohibición, y poner fin a la violencia y la injusticia AHORA!
