Wall Street & George Washington

Wall Street refers to the financial district of New York City, named after and centered on the eight-block-long street running from Broadway to South Street on the East River in Lower Manhattan. George Washington ( – , 1799) was the first President of the United States of America, serving from 1789 to 1797, and the dominant military and political leader of the United States from 1775 to 1799. He led the American victory over Great Britain in the American Revolutionary War as commander-in-chief of the Continental Army from 1775 to 1783, and presided over the writing of the Constitution in 1787. Washington became the first president by unanimous choice, and oversaw the creation of a strong, well-financed national government that maintained neutrality in the wars raging in Europe, suppressed rebellion and won acceptance among Americans of all types. 5.0/5

Things are really getting strange here in the country of Thomas Jefferson, Martin Luther King, Benjamin Franklin, Booker T and George Washington. Isn't anyone a bit concerned that so our weather patterns have completely gone crazy and the same people from colleges we weren't smart enough or rich enough to attend, tell us it's because of stuff we put into the air every minute of every day? And we ignore them! Or that people are disappearing even when they are in hey planes and we never find them? Doesn't the notion that rich people are gathering vast sums on Wall Street which is supposed to be connected to economic growth even though the economy seems to be at rest, and roads still have pot holes from two years ago? I'm more concerned that young boys cannot find work aren't being educated or motivated to be somebody but somehow are being killed every day by other boys using guns that are supposed to be hard to get. What about hearing that at least three women, mothers, sisters, and aunts of somebody ar ...
Just a year later, George Washington was inaugurated on Wall Street outside of Federal Hall.

Secret Societies Control the World If you were really a member of the global élite, you'd know this already: the world is ruled by a powerful, secretive few. Many of the rest of us peons have heard that in 2004 both candidates for the White House were members of Yale University's secretive Skull and Bones society, many of whose members have risen to powerful positions. But Skull and Bones is small potatoes compared with the mysterious cabals that occupy virtually every seat of power, from the corridors of government to the boardrooms of Wall Street. Take the Illuminati, a sect said to have originated in 18th century Germany and which is allegedly responsible for the pyramid-and-eye symbol adorning the $1 bill: they intend to foment world wars to strengthen the argument for the creation of a worldwide government (which would, of course, be Satanic in nature). Or consider the Freemasons, who tout their group as the "oldest and largest worldwide fraternity" and boast alumni like George Washington. Some thin ...

The years we grew up were the best times our country went through. I graduated from Maine - Endwell Senior High School in 1966. Even though the world was in turmoil we did not feel that until the last years in High School. 1962 they removed prayer from schools. Then Bible reading was also removed. Soon afterwards abortions were allowed, state by state. Not one country has survived their great powers after killing babies. JFK physical fitness program was getting us to be fit and ready for Viet Nam. Kennedy was killed Nov 22, 1963, The world we knew before starts to crumble. I know you know all this. Then 911,,, God removes the hedge of protections that allows us to be stuck down. Where??? What would become Wall Street, NYC. It was down the road in the chapel that George Washington and the first Congress of the United States dedicates our country to God. On what will become Wall Street is our first Capital of the United States. Yes it was New York City. Today they continue to remove God from our countries . ...

Modern-Day American Imperialism: Middle East and Beyond Noam Chomsky Boston University, April 24, 2008 Transcription courtesy of Steve Lyne   (Please note: this is a volunteer transcript of an original audio or video source. It has not been verified by chomsky.info or Noam Chomsky for accuracy. It is recommended that the original source be employed when possible for purposes of citation.) I've been asked to talk about modern-day American imperialism.  That's a rather challenging task.  In fact, talking about American imperialism is rather like talking about triangular triangles.  The United States is the one country that exists, as far as I know, and ever has, that was founded as an empire explicitly.  According to the founding fathers, when the country was founded it was an "infant empire."  That's George Washington.  Modern-day American imperialism is just a later phase of a process that has continued from the very first moment without a break, going in a very steady line.  So, we are looking at ...

On July 4, 1776 the Continental Congress declared our independence from British tyranny. Today we face the tyranny of Wall Street with its wars, exploitation, racism, poverty and austerity measures being shoved down our throats to pay for these dirty imperialist wars and its two-party trap which includes the most corrupt political process in the world as Wall Street and its coterie of bribed politicians, with Obama at the helm, demonstrate utter contempt and disdain for OUR Declaration of Independence, OUR United States Constitution and OUR Bill of Rights. What has happened to, "We The People" and the pursuit of happiness? If there are any amongst us on this Fourth of July not thoroughly fed up it would be surprising? In 1776 the British monarchy was the enemy; today, Wall Street is our enemy. There is no doubt that if George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Crispus Attucks and Thomas Paine were alive today their names would be on Obama's "hit list" in the Oval Office targeted for death by ...

NET WORTH OF EVERY AMERICAN PRESIDENT One of the most important conclusions of this analysis is that the presidency has little to do with wealth. Several brought huge net worths to the job. Many lost most of their fortunes after leaving office. Some never had any money at all. Check out net worth of all forty-three presidents -- and visit 24/7 Wall Street for more information. George Washington (1789-1797), $525 Million, His Virginia plantation, "Mount Vernon," consisted of five separate farms on 8,000 acres of prime farmland, run by over 300 slaves. His wife, Martha Washington, inherited significant property from her father. Washington made significantly more than subsequent presidents: his salary was two percent of the total U.S. budget in 1789. John Adams (1797-1801), $19 Million, Adams received a modest inheritance from his father. His wife, Abigail Adams, was a member of the Quincys, a prestigious Massachusetts family. Adams owned a handsome estate in Quincy, Massachusetts, known as "Peacefield," a w ...
Today in honor of President's Day, I went this morning where George Washington was sworn in, Federal Hall on Wall Street. Very moving.
Alexander Hamilton was born on January 11th 1757 in Nevis British West Indies. He immigrated to the US in 1772. He attended Kings College which is now Columbia University and has a statue of him on the grounds. He founded the Federalist Party, the Bank of New York and was a confidant of George Washington. He became the first Secretary of Treasury and selected the spot for the Treasury Building causing a break between the White House and the Capitol Building. There is a statue of him in front of the Treasury building. He left his Hamilton Grange home in Hamilton Heights to duel Aaron Burr on July 11th 1804 in Weehawken NJ and died the next day in Greenwich Village at age 47. He is buried at Trinity Church Cemetery on Wall Street. His wife outlived him 50 years and is buried beside him. Hamilton is one of the few men not to be president whose face is on money - the $10 bill.
On April 30, 1789 our first president was sworn in at Federal Hall, our first seat of government located on Wall Street, Manhattan New York. As the newly inaugurated President, George Washington's first act as President was to lead on foot, the Vice President and members of the Senate and House of Representatives, proceed to St. Paul’s Chapel. It was at St. Paul's Chapel that our nation was dedicated to God. Our newly founded Government joined our President, along with the rest of the nation, upon bent knee and in solemn prayer asked for God's favor and blessing upon this nation. It was at that time that our nation was committed by our leader and the people to God Almighty.

So we went to Ground Zero yesterday with our good friends Pastors Joel and Jolanda Wolensky of Macungie, Pa. We had an awesome time! We parked in Statten Island and rode the ferry for free right past Lady Liberty and Ellis Island. When we arrived in Manhattan, we walked to Wall Street and took pictures of the Exchange and the big Bull. We also took a few shots of the Federal Hall where our country was founded. Then we walked over to St. Paul's Chapel where George Washington prayed with our country's founders. We photographed the place where the Sycamore tree once stood that blocked the beam that came in from the Towers; it is now replaced with a evergreen. This evergreen sits on the edge of the grounds closest to where the Towers once stood. I had several very interesting encounters with Lubavitchers. Chabad are very evangelistic and only go after "wayward" Jews and try to bring them back to the "true" faith, based on a personal adherance to Messiah Rebbe Schneerson. So when they walk through a c ...
As I write this, I'm in the financial district of Manhattan. I'm sitting on the steps of Federal Hall where George Washington took the oath of office.. a couple blocks from the WTC.. steps away from the Trinity Church founded in 1690.. and steps from the New York Stock Exchange. Its an emotIonal place to be.. I can't help but imagine what it was like here 11 years ago.. chaos, panic and horror. All of the people who lost their lives and loved ones is devastating. I'm about to go to the September 11th Remembrance Service at the church where their message wIll be hope and tolerance of ALL PEOPLE. That's what it should all be about- love. No matter who you worship, or where you come from. If we could get to a place of decency and respect for everyone.. the world would be a better place for us all. Remembering the 9/11 victims today and hoping that hate and intolerance can be driven out by love and peace. — at Wall Street. I am so proud of my daughter.
Eleven years ago I was sitting with my husband and Morgan watching Michael Jackson perform at the Garden. We walked back to the train cuz the weather was so perfect. I remember vividly us remarking how special that night was. Andy had to be back in the City in the morning and Morgan to school so we didn't hang around. We rushed in the morning of the 11th to get everyone out the door, I didn't catch where Andy was going first - Wall Street or New Jersey. It didn't matter at the time, me and K needed to get the baby to preschool. I was back in my studio listening to News880 when they first reported a plane had hit the Trade Center. It could have hit my heart directly, I physically couldn't breath. We tried to get Ang on the phone, no luck. After the second plane hit, he finally called to say, 'I'm on the West Side Highway stuck in traffic. There's a bad fire that I can see so I'm going to go over the George Washington to New Jersey now.' He hadn't heard the news. We told him what happened and as he crossed ...

Yesterday I took a walk down to the oldest part of New York City, where the Dutch landed and planted their flag near the current location of the Staten Island Ferry, where George Washington stood his officers rounds at Fraunces Tavern, now filled with Wall Street types, and where a bunch of smelly h...
There is a special celebration this Saturday at Federal Hall, downtown Manhattan, to commemorate it's history and will include a presentations by folks playing George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, as well as a talk by Mike Wallace who wrote the seminal history of NYC -- Gotham. His talk will be on the sequel he's preparing -- Gotham II which covers NYC history from 1898 (the consolidation of the boroughs) forward. I am taking a new ferry boat over to Wall Street from a Jersey shore town which offers free parking so it's very cost effective, and it will be fun to take the ferry! I have a class starting very soon at NY University starting very soon, which will be held downtown, so I will be taking this ferry and thus Saturday will function as "dry run." I'm looking forward!
