S2:E6 – Smoking Gun

This series is an up-close-and-personal account of the heroes introduced by Eric Vaughan and Patrick Lovell’s “The Con” which took a simple but revolutionary approach to explain the epidemics of elite fraud driving the great financial crisis of 2007-2008 and still with us today.

Ask a thousand random people what climate change is and does and imagine the array of responses you’d get. It would be great if the baker, the butcher, and the brewer could unpack an accurate depiction of cause and effect that leads to a solution, but as far as society is structured, we expect the experts to understand the subject and that affords the leaders of society to formulate plans in accordance to the problem. That’s how our democracy is engineered. But unfortunately, that’s not how it works.

As The New Untouchables continues to unpack the 2008 Great Financial Crises we continue to learn the event isn’t a stand-alone time period in American history everyone understands or that we solved. To the contrary, very few even understand the most basic facts let alone the tremendous consequences of our collective dystopia.

In our next episode, you meet Lainey Hashorva, a woman who defines grit and determination to rise above the pollution of Wells Fargo criminality, but it didn’t come without exacting a pound of flesh. We will also introduce you to Beth Jacobson, who has an extraordinary story and is an expert witness in the foreclosure madness. What she reveals to us is quite literally the smoking gun of the murder weapon that killed the American Dream.
