Paul Volcker Escorted and Confronted by WeAreChange

At a gala for the NY Economics Club, Luke Rudkowski questioned Paul Volcker on his Bilderberg attendance and the Federal Reserve. In a previous video, Volcker acknowledged being a member of Bilderberg and the Trilateral Commission but stated that the Federal Reserve was “the most insidious” organization he’s been a member of. This time Luke had the opportunity to have a longer conversation with Volcker since he was lost at the event and couldn’t find where he was supposed to be, so we had the interview as we helped him navigate around the hotel. As it turns out, the place we were helping Volcker find ended up being the room that Ben Bernanke was in waiting to have his picture taken, which is where Luke confronted him. Although Volcker was most likely not too pleased to have been confronted with the questions Luke asked him, he at least talked to us and didn’t immediately call security as Bernanke did.

Ben Bernanke Confronted on Secret Federal Reserve Bailouts

Luke Rudkowski got yet another chance to question the current chairman of the Federal Reserve, Ben Bernanke. The last time the two met, Bernanke was not in a talkative mode and since Luke only had one chance to ask one question he decided it had to be an important one. Luke asked Bernanke about the 2007 – 2010 secret trillion dollar Federal Reserve bailouts, that only recently came to light from a partial audit of the Federal Reserve. Barnanke was not happy with the question but since no one in the main stream media ever questioned Bernanke on the biggest bailout in world history, Luke had to seize the chance. During the in-prompt to interview Bernanke actually grabbed Luke’s microphone and tried to snatch it away from him but sadly the video did not capture his hands on the microphone.

A Case Of Asserting Your Rights To Film

Ok, so we highly recommend that you do not actually do what you’ve seen in this video. It’s best to be calm, cool, collected and talk in a normal tone when addressing police officers. This footage was shot a couple of years ago, when Luke Rudkowski had a very bad day and was still maturing as a journalist. WeAreChange strongly believes in the right to film in public, but many times police officers incorrectly view this as a crime and use intimidation to stop the legal right to film. This time the opposite scenario played out, which we wanted to share with you.
