Max Keiser has a Problem

04 Dec

The gov-co’s first problem with Max Keiser is that he’s intelligent.  Intelligence won’t necessarily get you into trouble, but it certainly can–especially in conjunction with Keiser’s second problem:

Keiser is honest.  The combination of intelligence and honesty necessarily means that a person cannot be “politically correct”.  Those who are both intelligent and honest pose a special threat to the “system” since such people are capable of seeing and understanding the “system’s” criminal acts.

Third, he’s knowledgeable.  He worked in the stock markets from a number or years and has an insider’s understanding of how markets and financial systems actually work.

Fourth, he’s articulate.  That means he not only understands the system’s criminality, he is capable of communicating that understanding to others.  That makes him even more dangerous to the “system”.

Fifth, and most troublesome of all, Keiser is passionate.  He gives a damn about the truth.  He’s more motivated by truth than money.  That means he’s compelled to tell the truth.  A man can be intelligent, honest, knowledgeable and articulate, but still be only potentially dangerous–so long as he keeps his mouth shut.  But if that same man is passionate about the truth, he will be compelled to speak out in public to try to communicate and expose the truth to others.  The only thing this system fears is public exposure.  Therefore, the thing this system fears most of all is a man (or woman) who is passionate about the truth.

Thus, Max Keiser is truly a dangerous man.  I admire him enormously.  I even envy him.

But Keiser has another problems–at least with me.  He’s appears impish.  He could’ve been a great stand-up comic.  He’s got that comedian’s “look”.  So, every time I see him speak, I get the feeling that I’m watching a skit from Saturday Night Live.  It’s distracting.  Keiser is trying to communicate important and powerful information, but part of me keeps thinking “Saturday Night Live“.  I keep waiting for a punch line, but instead I hear recommendations that people like Henry Paulson should be hanged.  It’s hard to reconcile the seriousness of the subject matter and Keiser’s humorous style.

The contrast between the deadly import of Keiser’s subject matter Keiser and his style is “fascinating” (which, as Norman Mailer once observed, is both “attractive and repulsive”) and almost incapable of duplication.  I don’t know of anyone else who can communicate such serious information with such humor.

But I’m also reminded that humor is one of the hallmarks of intelligence.  Keiser’s humor only underscores his intellect.

Here’s one of Keiser’s most recent videos.  It’s about 25 minutes long, but the first 13 minutes deal with the criminal acts (including probable murder) by the banksters led by Henry Paulson.  Those 13 minutes are absolutely worth your time–even if they make you, too, sometimes think of Saturday Night Live.

    RE: “Max Keiser is truly a dangerous man. I admire him enormously.”
    I feel exactly the same way! I have come to understand the Workings of the Bankster more from Max Keiser than from any other single person. He and Stacy Herbert comprise the Dynamic Duo, IMHO.

    Absolutely. And Stacy Herbert has almost as much “impishness” in her face as Max. Their mix of serious subject matter and humorous style is almost irresistible.

    It is too bad that some People that are not hansome or pretty enough to be taken seirously by the ‘American Idol’-ized ‘Americans’.
    Every time I look a JUDGE in the eyes and assert “this COURT is in want of Corpus Delecti – I move to dismiss DOCKET # 12345 (I say DOCKET# because there is no CASE for the COURT to hear), the JUDGE ignores my assertion as though I’ve remained silent. I’ve concluded that if I looked like Mitt Romney the JUDGE would, based on facts and findings, sustain my move/motion.

    I propose that all JUDGES and Juries wear blindfolds when hearing DOCKET#’s and CASEs. In that fashion there would be zero prejudice inflicted because of vision.

    But then there is attorney Geoffrey Fieger, who is successful…. go figure?

    Max rocks, i bet he gets arrested for sedition once the police state goes into full swing.

    I am rocking the court system right now, been thrown in jail twice for having the audacity to question judges authority to make me stand up and stand where he says .. etc etc etc.

    they throw me in jail for contempt for the day, then drop the contempt charges after about 7 hours

      It’s largely show-biz. They aren’t simply punishing you for contempt; they are setting an example to scare the crap out of anyone in the court room who might otherwise be inspired to emulate your example.

    Combination of serious & impish–you really can’t “square” them. He’s irresistible because he is meant to be. Therefore, I’m not sure for whom he works.

    When Alex Jones asked Max how he dealt with the the TSA (or like kind in Europe, ) Max replied he slips something on the TSA agent he got from Of all the people Jones interviews, only Max will turn the interview into a comedy routine. So I would add a sixth to the five above, he is funny which makes him enjoyable to listen to.
