The Power Of Accreditation

In order to make a killing in finance, it is necessary to prove you are already rich. Unless you are an accredited investor, the choicest private placements and other schemes are closed to you. Likewise, according to Murphy’s law, in order to qualify for a loan, you must first prove that you do not need one. Only accredited borrowers can raise funds. This is a clear demonstration of the power of accreditation: you need to have it in life in order to succeed!

Determined to put an end to such injustices, which discriminated against the less affluent, Goldman Sachs decided to do so something for the non-accredited ‘little people’. Around 2006 and 2007, the bank sold many billions of exciting mortgage backed securities (MBS) to charities, housing associations. Aware that such investors were unaccredited and unable to dabble in ‘risky’ bets, accredited rating agency friends of Goldman Sachs arranged for the MBS to be rated AAA. Safe! Later, Goldman Sachs arranged for hard-up countries such as Greece to get the cash they desperately needed so that the country’s dynamic and industrious workforce could flourish again.

Unfortunately, as is often the way when powerful interests are threatened, the financial regulators took a dim view of Goldman Sachs’ benevolence. They had the audacity to claim that MBS bore some responsibility for the global financial crisis, forcing Goldman Sachs to withdraw from that particular market.

Fortunately, for the ‘little people’, we in the accredited media are fully on their side. We stand up to powerful interests and narrow special-interest groups, always seeking to deliver the objective facts and correct opinions that our readers need to know. As the ‘about us’ section states, “The Accredited Times is dedicated to bringing you unapologetic, relevant articles by fearless writers. We report on current affairs, covering any topic from finance and politics to technology and entertainment.”

Our strength lies also in working collegiately with other leading media outlets, such as those listed in the featured image. In this age of fake news and propaganda, it is more important than ever that only accredited journalists and experts get to appear on TV news programs and interviews. Since many of the main news organisations are owned by the same few individuals, this means we do not have to compete with each other. The benefit of this is being able to coordinate with our fellow journalists in the main stream media and agree what narrative will be presented to the public for any given news story. In this way, we ensure that propaganda and lies are never disseminated. We can also ensure that dangerous and irresponsible conspiracy theories (e.g. concerning 9/11) never see the light of day.

Fortunately, the vast majority of the US population seems to like our approach. It is our news broadcasts, our newspapers, and our interviews that get watched. Only a tiny fraction of the adult population bother consulting the ‘alternative media’ and we don’t see this changing any day soon.

Agree. It’s important to control the narrative so that the right social outcome occurs.

You cannot let people start resorting to evidence and data to make their decisions because they will invariably do things that you do not like and which are harmful to the progressive goal.

Those who insist on resisting will simply have to be dealt with by the revolution. The Khmer Rouge had innovative solutions to those who were not on board with the Party and the progressive destination. It was unfortunate that so many cambodians were hateful racist bigots.

So true. If we let people make their own decisions and refrain from priming them with progressive narratives, they could come to all sorts of bigoted conclusions by observing the world around them and listening to dangerous demagogues who dress their bigotry in evidence and reasoned arguments. Society works better with a set of accredited gatekeepers controlling the spread of information and making sure that only accredited ideas propagate.

When it comes to communism, there is so much disinformation and propaganda out there that it’s really hard to get across to people just how many benefits the people under communist regimes experienced. Just ask anyone who lived under the communist regimes in Cambodia or Eastern Europe. Many of them reminisce for those days, and long for a return to the ways of the past.

It’s not like the Fed has to issue $16 trillion in loans to bail out the banksters from their “liar loans”

or

that Goldman had to become a “normal thieving bank” in order to get some of those loans (instead of a “trading institution”)

or

that GE’s credit card loans were in such shitty shape that it also had to crawl over to the Fed for a chunk of that $16 trillion”

or

that the US government put so much money into General Motors that it became Government Motors.

or

that Fanny Mae and Freddy Mac sold trillions in “liar loans” to the Fed and that the Fed at above market prices and the just printed money to cover up the holes.’

or

that student loans are going bad so fast (as African and women’s studies don’t add anything to a persons job skills but do a a big debt hole) that banks are going belly up – oh! that’s the next big bank fiasco? Nevermind!

Debt doesn’t matter because we can simply print wealth into existence! We need MORE debt not less, in order to boost aggregate demand and get our economy moving! What is so difficult to understand about this? People who question common sense mainstream economics are just so unreasonable!

The Wall that works

Hungary’s second border fence has just been completed in the southern town of Asotthalom. The 96-mile long, 14 ft. tall double-line of defense doesn’t look too intimidating from a distance. Go a little closer and you’ll notice several layers of razor-wire capable of delivering electric shocks, cameras, heat sensors and loudspeakers ready to tell migrants they’re about to break Hungarian law if they as much as touch the fence.

Add a few hundred military officers and “border hunters” and it’s virtually impossible to break.

“They don’t even try,” a local border guard tells The Daily Caller News Foundation. “We haven’t had a Syrian in six months.”

Accreditation is the secret to the universe. It makes the world go round.

The world is an oblate spheroid, and all the accreditation in the world won’t change that.

It has already been proven that the world is flat by Thomas Friedman of NY Times. Read his book “The World Is Flat: A Brief History of the Twenty-first Century”.
Some places in Afghanistan, which have caves where Taliban hide, are being flattened out by MOABs. So it is not perfectly flat yet. We just need to give the MIC more time and money.

As far as I am concerned they can fight it out with the Hollow- Earthers for dominance.

The winners can then fall off of the edge, or descend into the earth through the north and south pole entrances.
