US Police Have Killed Over 5000 Civilians Since 9/11

Though Americans commonly believe law enforcement’s role in society is to protect them and ensure peace and stability within the community, the sad reality is that police departments are often more focused on enforcing laws, making arrests and issuing citations. As a result of this as well as an increase in militarized policing techniques, Americans are eight times more likely to be killed by a police officer than by a terrorist, estimates a Washington’s Blog report based on official statistical data.

Though the U.S. government does not have a database collecting information about the total number of police involved shootings each year, it’s estimated that between 500 and 1,000 Americans are killed by police officers each year. Since 9/11, about 5,000 Americans have been killed by U.S. police officers, which is almost equivalent to the number of U.S. soldiers who have been killed in the line of duty in Iraq.

Because individual police departments are not required to submit information regarding the use of deadly force by its officers, some bloggers have taken it upon themselves to aggregate that data. Wikipedia also has a list of “justifiable homicides” in the U.S., which was created by documenting publicized deaths.

Mike Prysner, one of the local directors of the Los Angeles chapter for ANSWER — an advocacy group that asks the public to Act Now to Stop War and End Racism — told Mint Press News earlier this year that the “epidemic” of police harassment and violence is a nationwide issue.

He said groups like ANSWER are trying to hold officers accountable for abuse of power. “[Police brutality] has been an issue for a very long time,” Prysner said, explaining that in May, 13 people were killed in Southern California by police.

As Mint Press News previously reported, each year there are thousands of claims of police misconduct. According to the CATO Institute’s National Police Misconduct Reporting Project, in 2010 there were 4,861 unique reports of police misconduct involving 6,613 sworn officers and 6,826 alleged victims.

Most of those allegations of police brutality involved officers who punched or hit victims with batons, but about one-quarter of the reported cases involved firearms or stun guns.

Racist policing

A big element in the police killings, Prysner says, is racism. “A big majority of those killed are Latinos and Black people,” while the police officers are mostly White, he said. “It’s a badge of honor to shoot gang members so [the police] go out and shoot people who look like gang members,” Prysner argued, giving the example of 34-year-old Rigoberto Arceo, who was killed by police on May 11.

According to a report from the Los Angeles Times, Arceo, who was a biomedical technician at St. Francis Medical Center, was shot and killed after getting out of his sister’s van. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department says Arceo “advanced on the deputy and attempted to take the deputy’s gun.” However, Arceo’s sister and 53-year-old Armando Garcia — who was barbecuing in his yard when the incident happened — say that Arceo had his hands above his head the entire time.

Prysner is not alone in his assertion that race is a major factor in officer-related violence. This past May, astudy from the the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement, an anti-racist activist organization, found that police officers, security guards or self-appointed vigilantes killed at least 313 Black people in 2012 — meaning one Black person was killed in the U.S. by law enforcement roughly every 28 hours.

Prysner said the relationship between police departments and community members needs to change and that when police shoot an unarmed person with their arms in the air over their head, the officer should be punished.

Culture of misconduct

“You cannot have a police force that is investigating and punishing itself,” Prysner said, adding that taxpayer money should be invested into the community instead of given to police to buy more guns, assault rifles and body armor.

Dissatisfied with police departments’ internal review policies, some citizens have formed volunteer police watch groups to prevent the so-called “Blue Code of Silence” effect and encourage police officers to speak out against misconduct occurring within their department.

As Mint Press News previously reported, a report released earlier this year found that of the 439 cases of police misconduct that then had been brought before the Minneapolis’s year-old misconduct review board, not one of the police officers involved has been disciplined.

Although the city of Minneapolis spent $14 million in payouts for alleged police misconduct between 2006 and 2012, despite the fact that the Minneapolis Police Department often concluded that the officers involved in those cases did nothing wrong.

Other departments have begun banning equipment such as Tasers, but those decisions were likely more about protecting the individual departments from lawsuits than ensuring that officers are not equipped with weapons that cause serious and sometimes fatal injuries when used.

To ensure officers are properly educated on how to use their weapons and are aware of police ethics, conflict resolution and varying cultures within a community, police departments have historically held training programs for all officers. But due to tighter budgets and a shift in priorities, many departments have not provided the proper continuing education training programs for their officers.

Charles Ramsey, president of both the Major Cities Chiefs Association and the Police Executive Research Forum, called that a big mistake, explaining that it is essential officers are trained and prepared for high-stress situations:

“Not everybody is going to be able to make those kinds of good decisions under pressure, but I do think that the more reality-based training that we provide, the more we put people in stressful situations to make them respond and make them react.”

GI Joe replaces Carl Winslow

In order to help local police officers protect themselves while fighting the largely unsuccessful War on Drugs, the federal government passed legislation in 1994 allowing the Pentagon to donate surplus military equipment from the Cold War to local police departments. Meaning that “weaponry designed for use on a foreign battlefield has been handed over for use on American streets … against American citizens.”

So while the U.S. military fights the War on Terror abroad, local police departments are fighting another war at home with some of the same equipment as U.S. troops, and protocol that largely favors officers in such tactics as no-knock raids.

Radley Balko, author of “Rise of the Warrior Cop,” wrote in the Wall Street Journal in August:

“Since the 1960s, in response to a range of perceived threats, law-enforcement agencies across the U.S., at every level of government, have been blurring the line between police officer and soldier.

“Driven by martial rhetoric and the availability of military-style equipment—from bayonets and M-16 rifles to armored personnel carriers—American police forces have often adopted a mind-set previously reserved for the battlefield. The war on drugs and, more recently, post-9/11 antiterrorism efforts have created a new figure on the U.S. scene: the warrior cop—armed to the teeth, ready to deal harshly with targeted wrongdoers, and a growing threat to familiar American liberties.”

As Mint Press News previously reported, statistics from an FBI report released in September reveal that a person is arrested on marijuana-related charges in the U.S. every 48 seconds, on average — most were for simple possession charges.

According to the FBI’s report, there were more arrests for marijuana possession than for the violent crimes of murder and non negligent manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery and aggravated assault — 658,231 compared with 521,196 arrests.

While groups that advocate against police brutality recognize and believe that law enforcement officials should be protected while on duty, many say that local police officers do not need to wear body armor, Kevlar helmets and tactical equipment vests — all while carrying assault weapons.

“We want the police to keep up with the latest technology. That’s critical,” American Civil Liberties Union senior counsel Kara Dansky said. “But policing should be about protection, not combat.”

According to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, there are more than 900,000 sworn law enforcement officers in the United States. In 2012, 120 officers were killed in the line of duty. The deadliest day in law enforcement history was reportedly Sept. 11, 2001, when 72 officers were killed.

Despite far fewer officers dying in the line of duty compared with American citizens, police departments are not only increasing their use of protective and highly volatile gear, but are increasingly setting aside a portion of their budget to invest in new technology such as drones, night vision goggles, remote robots, surveillance cameras, license plate readers and armored vehicles that amount to unarmed tanks.

Though some officers are on board with the increased militarization and attend conferences such as the annual Urban Shield event, others have expressed concern with the direction the profession is heading.

For example, former Arizona police officer Jon W. McBride said police concerns about being “outgunned” were likely a “self-fulfilling prophecy.” He added that “if not expressly prohibited, police managers will continually push the arms race,” because “their professional literature is predominately [sic] based on the acquiring and use of newer weapons and more aggressive techniques to physically overwhelm the public. In many cases, however, this is the opposite of smart policing.”

“Coupled with the paramilitary design of the police bureaucracy itself, the police give in to what is already a serious problem in the ranks: the belief that the increasing use of power against a citizen is always justified no matter the violation. The police don’t understand that in many instances they are the cause of the escalation and bear more responsibility during an adverse outcome.

“The suspects I encountered as a former police officer and federal agent in nearly all cases granted permission for me to search their property when asked, often despite unconcealed contraband. Now, instead of making a simple request of a violator, many in law enforcement seem to take a more difficult and confrontational path, fearing personal risk. In many circumstances they inflame the citizens they are engaging, thereby needlessly putting themselves in real and increased jeopardy.”

Another former police officer who wished to remain anonymous agreed with McBride and told Balko,

“American policing really needs to return to a more traditional role of cops keeping the peace; getting out of police cars, talking to people, and not being prone to overreaction with the use of firearms, tasers, or pepper spray. … Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been in more than my share tussles and certainly appreciate the dangers of police work, but as Joseph Wambaugh famously said, the real danger is psychological, not physical.”

Today’s Oligarch Curtain of Lies, Theft, Death and Destruction, Are Exposed As Never Before

Global Research, June 28, 2014

 

In psychology our belief system shapes our perceptions of the world around us, in fact becoming our very sense of reality. Our primary caregivers, most often our parents, project their view of us and their world onto us and we in turn internalize their views as our own sense of developing self and world view. In this last century the influence of mass media has also come to increasingly shape our world and self-concept. As adolescents and young adults we often change and modify our perceptions of the world based on our own interpersonal experience particularly with peers and movement to finding resonance with a more authentic, individuated self in relation to our surrounding world. But with time and more adult experience often comes an existential dilemma and/or crisis if and when we encounter growing dissonance between what we thought we knew and changing reality input increasingly at odds with our old world view.

Currently in America and many places throughout the world many of us are undergoing a fundamental change in our belief system as we come to realize what we have been taught as reality turns out anything but. Many of us on the planet are currently undergoing a mind-altering, transformative shift in how we view life and our world, in effect causing a simultaneous global shift of belief amongst a sizeable portion of the earth’s population. An unprecedented shift is moving away from what we humans have traditionally and historically been told is the truth to a state of mounting disbelief, skepticism and doubt in what our political leaders, mainstream media and educational systems have been feeding us since we were young. Today more and more people around the globe are waking up to the new emerging reality and insight that what we have historically been taught, socialized and raised to believe politically as the truth is but a crock of outright bullshit.

Trends and polls in recent years have documented this shift in world view consciousness, consistently showing a growing distrust toward the federal government in both the US and Europe. The Edelman poll from January this year found that nearly two out of three Americans distrust their government and the Reason-Rupe poll from April 2014 indicates three out of four Americans believe their politicians are corrupt. Last October Pew Research Center discovered that more than four out of five Americans do not trust their own government either at all or most of the time, a near all time high level for measuring government distrust.

Declaring results from last month’s parliamentary election a complete and utter failure for the European Union to become “the next United States of Europe,” (as European Commission Vice
President Viviane Reding refers to her EU government), a surging backlash of vehement anti-EU voters from all over Europe sent fringe elements from both the left and right to Brussels with the specific agenda to get rid of the European Union once and for all. The voters’ ire was heard from the stagnant economy of France and austerity-wary Greece, through Denmark all the way to Britain. A strong push for Ireland to opt out of the EU is in process. Many residents in especially southern Europe hit hardest with severe austerity measures imposed by powerful Germany are blaming the continental government. Oil-rich Scotland is even leading a separatist movement seeking independence from Britain. Many Europeans expressed contempt for big government that they blame for high unemployment and failed policies deemed unresponsive to meeting their localized needs. Beyond the US and Europe, more citizens around the globe are growing angrier with their elected officials, realizing politicians’ priority is to serve the needs of their oligarch puppet master over the needs of their own people.

Similar negative sentiments toward mainstream media also represent an across the boards distrust toward corporatized media coverage of world events. Recently more people are seeking alternative online news sources for their information in response to growing public awareness that corporate media has become a mere extension of the government as its chief propagandist disinformation outlet. Even such traditionally prestigious and reputable newspapers like the Washington Post, New York Times and Wall Street Journal are now regarded as in-bed, embedded journalism fused with the government. As such, last year’s June Gallup poll indicated that a whopping 80% of Americans aged 21 to 64 find mainstream media lacks credibility. All these results reflect a growing trend that an increasing segment of both the US and global population has come to believe and accept that they are systematically and regularly lied to and misinformed by their corrupt leaders in both government as well as corporate media.

As products of their social and cultural environments, humans raised in the West have been victims of a massive global brainwash forced into a world of duplicitous dualism to “choose” sides, of course choosing the political side of their own nation, culture, ethnicity and/or religion, conned into automatically accepting that their nation/culture/religion is far more righteous and superior in comparison to others on the opposing side.

Since World War II those of us in North America have been dished the demonized view of Communist nations Russia and China, and now with cold war part two in full swing, they have come full circle again at our so called enemies. Then after the fall of the Soviet empire, and the 9/11 neocon false flag attack, came the new US manufactured villain Osama bin Laden and his band of evil bad guys, the al Qaeda terrorist network. Always those who appear most foreign and different from us are deemed the bad guys of the world.

Fortunately over time this oversimplified, black and white rerun version of the world has been challenged and exposed as jingoistic bias and distortion of how our complicated world actually is. Many of us have intuitively known all along that as members of the same human species, the striking similarities of our common human nature that bind us together far outweigh whatever differences in culture, skin color, nationality, political ideology, global region or religion. What many of us are increasingly realizing both here in America as well as in other nations around the globe is that we have been purposely and methodically lied to and manipulated for a very long time. The education system in America is more about socializing, programming and brainwashing young people into becoming obedient, mindless, robotic adults than learning any real truth or learning to cultivate and use their critical faculties to seek the truth amidst the world of illusion.

This “us versus them,” “you’re either with us or against us” dichotomy has been forever used as an artificial manmade device to separate humans into an in-group versus out-group duality. Unfortunately it has been operating nonstop ever since cavemen first emerged from their caves and encountered other human tribes. Through human migration and modern technology of air travel and most recently internet travel, more than any time prior in man’s relative short history on earth, Canadian communications philosopher Marshall McLuhan’s concept of the world seen as a “global village” has shrunk the earth into a here and now everyday accepted reality.

As a result, in recent years the world view of nations and continents has become somewhat more homogenized, made more accessible by mass media technology that transcends both geography and culture. Learning and communicating with people from diverse cultures and backgrounds have brought the world closer. That said, conversely the earth today is geopolitically moving rapidly toward more fragmented polarization, driven by a single globalization economy owned, controlled and operated by a global oligarchy. Its perverse vision of a New World Order currently has much of the global population brainwashed to fear, mistrust, hate and kill each other with unparalleled potential. But not all of us are being fooled by such divisively spun projections from a shadowy elite madly pulling their deceptive spin levers cloaked behind their gold curtain. An honest look at what is actually happening now around the world exposes the oligarch agenda to purposely increase worldwide tension, division and conflict.

Last February’s notorious power grabbing political coup pulled off by the US in Ukraine installing a weak, corrupt and vicious fascist government certainly was no accident. Neither was the IMF loan immediately slapped on the Ukrainian people. Neither is the current civil war raging in eastern Ukraine where government forces are committing war atrocities and ethnic cleansing against a majority population of ethnic Russians. Nor for that matter is the ongoing political crisis occurring this entire year long in Venezuela a mere random accident.

By carefully orchestrated design, the US-EU-NATO alliance is obediently carrying out the oligarch high command to destabilize, polarize and militarize every continent on earth, pitting regional adversaries against each other in a global offensive with the West jabbing and baiting the East into military conflict from the Arctic to every corner of the globe. Right now in Asia tensions are mounting between China and North Korea on the one side and on the other US allied neighbors Japan, South Korea, Philippines and Vietnam where a new US naval base is planned.

Then there is the perennial hotbed of a mess exploding right now in the Middle East. The same war pattern has been raging in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya. And with covert predator drone operations likewise going on for years in Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia, the US is extending its imperialistic military foothold and hegemony further south with Special Operations stretching deep into Sub-Saharan Africa.

For well over three years Washington has been using US taxpayer dollars to arm, bankroll and train al Qaeda extremist militants throughout the Middle East and Africa to fight as its proxy mercenaries against Syrian leader Assad’s government forces as an obvious precursor to launching war against Syria’s foremost ally Iran. Obama just pledged another half billion dollars in arms to those same al Qaeda rebels in Syria.

But recently with the Syrian army gaining the upper hand, Washington made the decision to seek yet another regime change in Iraq, sending the so called Islamic Soldiers of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) sweeping downward from Syria into Iraq, taking over every major city in that country except the Shiite stronghold in the capital Baghdad. A major bloodbath awaits as the sectarian civil war America created years ago shifts into bloody regime-change overdrive. The US is guilty of backing both opposing sides in Iraq, ISIS and its weak Maliki puppet government, not unlike how oligarchs back both Republicans and Democrats using the old, highly effective, deceptive divide and conquer strategy.

Of course a similar situation in Afghanistan has the Taliban enemy controlling most of the nation’s territory, waiting six more months for US troops to withdraw by the end of the year. The 9800 US designated soldiers left behind will supposedly be in an advisory role for the Afghan National Army. The US war on drugs has bolstered the pockets of both the US drug smuggling operation as well as raising millions of dollars for the Taliban cause that controls the poppy field heroin production. The current undoing of ten years of costly American war and occupation of Iraq will more than likely be replicated in Afghanistan in 2015 as the surging Taliban will then be closing in on the capital Kabul.

In the meantime, virtually every other so called Arab spring CIA-Special Ops-induced regime change has been disastrous for the native populations. For example, in Egypt a third US supported government is run by an over-the-top, oppressive military dictatorship. Meanwhile, the US has created a highly chaotic, lawless, and violent failed state now in Libya. The oligarch planetary vision of destabilizing every Third World nation on earth is currently working according to plan now at an accelerated pace.

In recent decades America has moved from a corporatized pseudo-democracy to a full fledge oligarchy where oligarchs owning the most powerful transnational corporations have merged with virtually all national governments, regardless of ideology and culture. More than ever these days, money buys power. No longer does the US President, the US Congress, nor the US Supreme Court represent the interests of the American people but as hand-picked players operating within a corrupt oligarchy, they are all beholding to the powerbrokers that have made them their political puppets in charge of doing their evil bidding. As such, virtually all of the key political players today are treasonous traitors guilty of betraying the US Constitution that under oath they all swore to protect and uphold, and also betraying US citizens for failing to represent the very people who voted them into power.

Through the process of globalization and privatization, a parallel process to America has been unfolding with nearly every nation and national government on every continent on earth. Deploying US-EU-NATO power, the oligarchs have had their way with all governments. Thus the people on this planet have little to no say or power over their lives since a morally bankrupt global economic system of indentured servitude and slavery keep people drowning in insurmountable debt. These days people find themselves working longer and harder for less money just to keep a roof over their heads and food on the table for their families. However, in this growing era of severe global austerity and impoverishment, increasing pressures of providing for their families have too many people barely able to survive, and regretfully many around the globe are not.

Mounting inequality and disparity between the rich and poor are also accelerating to unprecedented levels globally. The elite 1% of oligarchs and their power-broking stewards continue growing exceedingly richer at the expense of the rest of us have-nots on the planet. War, poverty and illness are becoming the new normal far beyond Third World nations. EU countries throughout southern Europe as well as the US are on an ominous fast track to economic collapse. Led by cold war enemies and strongest BRICS nations Russia and China, a growing international movement is afoot to dump the US dollar as the standard international currency, which amounts to an approaching fiscal cliff for America.

Over 40% and rising of America’s adult working age population have not been working when the real unemployment rate include the growing masses who stopped looking for jobs that no longer exist for them. During the last couple decades, mothers as single parents have been struggling to raise America’s children, for the first time replacing the two parent nuclear family as head of household majority. More than half of US adults up to age 25 still live with their parents. But due to increasing financial necessity, a growing trend of even older adults and their children are being forced to move back in with parents at never before seen rates. US college students and young graduates today are mired in college loan debt now exceeding a trillion dollars, as of 2010 even surpassing the nation’s credit card debt. Upwardly mobile progress is long gone in America as the younger adult generations now for the first time can no longer expect to enjoy the same higher standard of living as their parents. The fast changing sociological economic dynamics of the family structure and how younger generations of Americans are being raised in an increasing climate of uncertainty and despair is far different and far bleaker than all previous generations throughout American history.

Without a manufacturing sector left in the US and a decimated middle class from funding an overstretched American Empire waging too many wars around the world, America is a debtor nation dependent as a consumer society on cheap outsourced products mostly from China. US permanent war policy with its conveniently fabricated “war on terror” has drained the middle class during a severe recession still floundering without recovery, chiefly caused by greedy banksters and Wall Street criminals who further gouged already emaciated taxpayers with enormous “too big to fail” bailouts. The national priority in the US has clearly been to not take care of its own citizens but instead wage the longest running wars in US history to ensure that the military security complex as the sole profiteers of war get filthily richer while reeking havoc all over the world with destabilizing regime changes, massive death and global destruction.

Meanwhile, the overburdened middle class shrinks to an all time low as the poor in America reach an all time high while decaying inner city war zones and rotting domestic infrastructure remain long neglected disasters waiting to happen. As a result of all this blatant theft, gross mismanagement of dwindling resources and pervasive criminal malfeasance, America is hopelessly stalled and a long ways from recovering from the 2008 bubble burst. Since 2008 the world’s total government debt has increased by 40% while the largest bailed out banks have grown by a hefty 37% just in the last six years alone. Yet for all its criminal theft and human suffering caused, not one bankster or corporate executive has been indicted or gone to prison for nearly bankrupting the richest, most powerful nation on earth.

Meanwhile, predatory worldwide IMF and world bank loans have opportunistically straight-jacketed Third World nations into debts they have no chance of repaying, leaving them defenseless against their homelands being plundered by predatory privatizing transnationals bent on extracting and stealing every last ounce of underground natural resource available on the planet.

This calculated, sinister process of globalization, privatization and increasing militarization bringing more wars to the planet is all part of the preplanned oligarch agenda to literally squeeze the life out of the world’s population of seven billion people, eugenically thinning the human herd down to anywhere from just a meager half to one billion people. This means that up to 13 out of 14 of us currently living on planet earth right now are slated to be mass murdered within the next few years. This is how the oligarchic plan for a New World Order will be fulfilled, complete with implanted micro-chips in the less than a billion people left on earth as the calculated number of humans still needed to serve as the oligarch’s subservient lackey class. This is their diabolical agenda currently being methodically executed to make life on planet earth over the long haul more sustainable for them and them only.

With all this increasing theft, death and destruction on every continent reaching such an explosive, unprecedented scale where World War III is all but impending, by now every alert citizen of the world should recognize what a handful of wealthy oligarch families have been doing for centuries to this planet – manipulating and enslaving the global masses through centuries of imperialist empire hegemony and controlling international economies at will though war making.

How can so few number of humans control and willfully destroy so many humans? Very evilly as psychopaths. But then they have had centuries of practice, skillfully, secretively operating in back shadows, using their puppet front men as their government leaders to lie constantly to the people. And of course for quite awhile they have had mass media bombarding us with nonstop lies, propaganda, disinformation and deceit just to make certain populations are kept in the dark. Today with big sports, video games, celebrity worship and digital toys galore, their ploy is to keep the masses distracted and ignorant of what has been really going on for a very, very long time. Through whitewashed history books that purposely cover up this same dark truth through the ages, Americans have long been brainwashed and mesmerized into accepting their illusion of democracy, equality, freedom and justice, but for only a few, not all of us as we were always led to believe.

But as demonstrated most recently by the world focus on the latest annual Bilderberg gathering in Copenhagen, the oligarchs are unable to pull the strings from afar any longer without our noticing. Though they wield ultimate power over all the most prominent governments and corporations on earth, there are seven billion human beings who are beginning to wake up now and are onto their evil agenda. Oligarchs taking notice and fast becoming nervous as their Oz-like curtain is finally being lifted once and for all. And behind that curtain we find a handful of wrinkled, prune faced, feeble old white men who look like Mr. Burns on the Simpsons still calling all the shots, but ultimately exposed naked like never before. With more and more of us world citizens every single day becoming aware of their vicious and heinous crimes against humanity, against all of us on this earth, like never before we are in a unique position of burgeoning power to call them on their diabolical plan and evildoing.

We have at our collective disposal much more power than we even know at this relatively early stage of mindful resistance. As globally aware, ethically-motivated, humane and compassionate citizens of the world, we possess the opportunity to finally break free of the shackles that have stifled and enslaved humanity for far too long. Overwhelming similarities are currently binding us earthlings together as richly diverse members of the same humanoid family as well as like minded world citizen-activists committed to doing our collective active best in bringing about peace and justice to our ailing, only planet, before the handful of hugely outnumbered oligarchs destroy everything we hold most dear and sacred. It is up to us ordinary decent people to recognize the truth and bravely act on that truth in unified solidarity for the sake of preserving life on earth in the way that God intended. Again, our beliefs and our actions will determine our reality.

Ukraine and the Battle for South Stream Pipeline

06/28/2014

http://journal-neo.org/

 By Tony Cartalucci

The ongoing conflict in Ukraine, admittedly an attempt to expand both NATO and the European Union (EU), has escalated in terms of dominating Europe’s energy markets. Attempts to halt the ongoing construction of Russia’s South Stream natural gas pipeline appears to be a direct attempt to further penalize Russia for its role in defending Ukrainians currently under siege by aircraft, artillery, heavy armor and irregular troops.

Toward a Europe “Whole and Free,” and its Energy Market Too 

“Toward a Europe Whole and Free” was literally the title of NATO’s Atlantic Council’s May 2014 event celebrating NATO’s continuous expansion since the fall of the Soviet Union and its aspirations to integrate all along Russia’s borders and even Russia itself into its geopolitical socioeconomic order. The Atlantic Council’s official program webpage for the event stated:

This two-day conference will honor the historic milestones that have forged a strong and prosperous Atlantic community and explore the most pressing challenges to the completion of a Europe whole and free. This vision, successfully implemented for two decades with a bipartisan and transatlantic strategy, has been called into question both within current NATO and EU members and by Russia’s aggressive actions. Leaders and experts will gather at the Council’s headquarters to debate the opportunities and challenges in Europe’s east and south with the aim of exploring a renewed common transatlantic approach.

 
What is essentially a celebration of expansionism, military aggression, and extraterritorial political subversion, the event featured many of the chief protagonists in Ukraine’s current crisis. These included US Secretary of State John Kerry and US Vice President Joseph Biden, along with NATO commanders and US corporate-financier funded policymakers who have authored America’s decades of “exceptionalism.” It also included US Senator John McCain who literally flew to Kiev during the height of the “Euromaidan” protests and took the stage with ultra-right Neo-Nazi Svoboda Party leaders.

In their own words, those attending the Atlantic Council gathering describe the battle for Ukraine being fought to “complete” their socioeconomic consolidation in Europe – this includes “integrating Russia.” Secretary John Kerry at the gathering would literally state:

Our European Allies have spent more than 20 years with us working to integrate Russia into the Euro-Atlantic community.

By “integrating” Russia, of course, Kerry means overthrowing any independent national political order that exists in Moscow and replacing it with one that answers to Wall Street, London, and now Brussels. This can be seen clearly in attempts by the West to replicate its model of “color revolution” within Russian territory itself.

But Kerry and the rest of EU-NATO, recognizing that efforts to subvert and overthrow an independent political order in Russia have failed, have resorted to a policy of encirclement, containment, and confrontation, with Ukraine being only one of many battlefields the West is fighting upon. Kerry would declare Europe’s energy market as another.

He stated (emphasis added):

…if we want a Europe that is both whole and free, then we have to do more together immediately, with a sense of urgency, to ensure that European nations are not dependent on Russia for the majority of their energy. In this age of new energy markets, in this age of concern about global climate change and carbon overload, we ought to be able to rush to the ability to be able to make Europe less dependent. And if we do that, that will be one of the greatest single strategic differences that could be made here. We can deliver greater energy independence and help to diversify energy sources that are available to the European markets, and we can expand the energy infrastructure across Europe, and we can build up energy storage capacity throughout the continent.

And immediately they did. After resisting pressure from the EU regarding Russia’s South Stream pipeline, Bulgaria has been forced to suspend ongoing construction, jeopardizing interests and opportunities not only for Russia, but for the nations the pipeline is to pass through.

The Battle for South Stream

The halting of construction followed a visit by US Senators John McCain, Christopher Murphy, and Ron Johnson – with McCain in particular directly supporting the armed overthrow of the Ukrainian government earlier this year. In a Washington Post article titled, “Bulgaria halts work on South Stream gas pipeline,” it states:

Bulgaria’s prime minister has ordered on Sunday a halt to construction work on the Gazprom-led South Stream pipeline project planned to bypass Ukraine as a transit country and consolidating Russia’s energy grip in Europe.

Plamen Oresharski said after meeting U.S. Sens. John McCain, Christopher Murphy and Ron Johnson that he has ordered all work on the disputed project to continue only after consultations with Brussels.

Moscow responded by pointing out the obvious nature of what are in all intents and purposes sanctions against Russia. The Moscow Times reported in an article titled, “Russia Sees Underhanded Sanctions in Bulgaria’s Suspension of South Stream,” that:

Bulgaria’s decision to suspend construction of the Russia-led South Stream pipeline project on its territory, undermining Russia’s efforts to diversify its gas transportation infrastructure to Europe away from Ukraine, is an underhanded economic sanction thrust on Russia by the West, a top Russian diplomat and Russian industry analysts said Monday.

The article would also point out that once the South Stream pipeline is completed it will diminish Ukraine’s importance as a transit point for Russian natural gas into Western Europe. It appears that the moves against South Stream are designed to at the very least, delay this inevitable outcome for as long as possible, to maintain leverage as the West struggles to consolidate power on behalf of their teetering proxy regime in Kiev.

For Bulgaria’s part, not only have they disregarded US sanctions on Russia, choosing a Russian firm to build the pipeline, they appear eager to resolve the legal obstacles conveniently laid down amid the ongoing Ukrainian crisis, and complete the pipeline as soon as possible.

Exploiting South Stream’s Delay

The West’s plans to use South Stream’s delay to extort concessions from Russia and those working with it on the project. Additionally the delay will help preserve the benefits of Ukraine’s current monopoly on transporting Russian natural gas to Western Europe. To ensure maximum leverage, the West is placing key personnel within Ukraine’s energy sector, in addition to propping up the regime in Kiev. Perhaps the most indicative of the overall illegitimacy and criminal nature of the current EU-NATO posture was the appointment of Hunter Biden, son of US Vice President Joseph Biden, as a member of Ukraine energy giant Barisma’s board of directors.

Biden Jr.’s nepotist appointment is not where the conflict of interest begins or ends. Biden Jr. was also a director of the US State Department’s National Endowment for Democracy (NED) subsidiary National Democratic Institute (NDI). The NED/NDI played an admitted role in building up opposition parties in Ukraine prior to the so-called “Euromaidan” protests and admittedly engineered the so-called “Orange Revolution” in Ukraine in 2004. More recently, they served as “election monitors” lending their stamp of approval of polling in Ukraine where entire provinces failed to vote in the east, opposition parties were unable to campaign in the west, and the aerial bombardment of cities across the country was underway.

In effect, Biden Jr’s. NDI overthrew a government ahead of himself being appointed as a director in the targeted nation’s largest energy company – a dizzying conflict of interest. Coupled with the stated US agenda of reducing Russia’s influence in Europe’s energy market, this conflict of interest becomes a self-evident impropriety and an obvious component of the West’s agenda of encircling and containing Russia.

It remains to be seen how long the South Stream delay lasts and what other moves the EU, NATO, and Ukraine’s openly foreign-influenced regime and industries take in implementing Secretary Kerry’s stated goal of confronting Russia. For nations like Bulgaria, the cost to their sovereignty upon entering the European Union can now be acutely felt. Bulgaria is now unable to pursue their own interests because of dictates from Brussels made on behalf of special interests operating well beyond their borders and in absolute disregard to the peace and prosperity of the Bulgarian people. It is a cautionary tale for other nations around the world seeking to enter into similar supranational “communities,” most notably Southeast Asia’s ASEAN/AEC.

NATO and the EU’s open intent to “integrate” all of Europe including Russia into their geopolitical order, clearly by force if necessary, their abuse of the EU’s legal framework to impose thinly veiled sanctions on Russia, overt nepotism, as well as obstructing the completion of projects that are demonstrably beneficial to their own member states reveals an emerging political order of immense criminality unbound by the rule of law and a clear and present danger to global stability. For those in eastern Ukraine weathering air raids, artillery barrages, and mechanized “national guard” composed of ultra-right Neo-Nazi militants, that instability is already a deadly, daily reality.

The US Keeps on Waging a Gas War on Russia

Column: Economics Region: Russia in the World

6-28-2014 8-08-42 AM

By Petr Lvov, PhD

 

As it was predicted in the previous article, the US has been doing everything it possibly can to complicate the construction of the South Stream pipeline. It’s a well-known fact that Gazprom is creating this project in order to diversify gas supplies to Europe and to reduce its dependence on transit countries, especially on Ukraine. A company that was established for the successful execution of the project – South Stream Transport BV is an international joint venture, organized for the planning, construction and the subsequent exploitation of the offshore pipeline, which will run across the Black Sea. Gazprom’s share in this joint venture is 50%, the Italian company Eni has 20%, both the French energy company EDF and the German company Wintershall Holding GmbH share 15% each. The offshore section of the pipeline will cross the Black Sea, stretching from a compressor station in Russian to the Bulgarian coast. The estimated capacity of this project will amount to 63 billion cubic meters.

On 2 June a worrying development manifested itself in a statement issued by the European Commission that requested all the parties involved to suspend works on the implementation of the “South Stream” project. Sabine Berger, spokesperson of Guenther Oettinger, European Commissioner for Energy provided the public with two “legal grounds” that would lead to such a decision. According to her, the “South Stream” is allegedly not complying with the regulations of the “Third Energy Package” of the EU. Moreover, Brussels suspects that Bulgaria is “violating European rules of tenders on the construction of infrastructure projects” and that these country has somehow provided Russian and Bulgarian companies with “preferential possibilities for Russian and Bulgarian companies”.

And since Kiev has been evading the payment of its debt to Russia all through the month of May for the gas that had been delivered earlier by Gazprom, and was at the same time claiming to be a “reliable transit partner, it would be only logical to assume that the US and the EU under the pressure of its American allies are trying to bury the “South Stream”, leaving Ukraine the only option for transit of Russian gas to the EU. Ukraine then has become an important tool of applying of pressure on Moscow. What is even more important this scenario forces Russia into subsidizing the collapsing Ukrainian economy by selling its gas at a lower price to the Ukrainian side. The West does seem to be willing to pay the costs for the “democratization” of the country, preferring to leave this burden on the Russian shoulders. In addition, it has been reported that Americans and Europeans are equally willing to buy some gas transportation infrastructure in Ukraine: Kiev is currently holding talks with ExxonMobil, Shell and Chevron. Should the South Stream project succeed there will be no commercial sense in acquiring any of it, since the Ukrainian pipelines will run dry.

That’s why the West has started to apply pressure on any country that has allowed to build the pipeline on its soil. First on June 7 the US ambassador to Bulgaria has made a statement that Sofia should abandon its support of the “South Stream” project. Then on the next day the Bulgarian Prime Minister Plamen Oresharski has ordered the suspension of all works on the South Stream project. It’s curious that an ardent Russophobe Republican Senator John McCain, that was meeting with Plamen Oresharski on the same day, stated that Russian should be forced out of this project. According to McCain “Bulgaria should be addressing all of the South Stream challenges together with its European colleagues”. Bulgaria Prime Minister mimicked his American guest by saying that it will put all construction works on halt till all disputes with the European Commission are not resolved. Only further consultations with Brussels will determine the course of further cooperation said Plamen Oresharski.

On June 9 Belgrade, despite the fact that Serbia has not joined the EU just yet, announced that it would be suspending the construction of the South Stream because of the decision made by the Bulgaria authorities, said Serbian Deputy Prime Minister Zorana Mihajlovic. “Bulgaria is the center. Until Bulgaria finishes negotiations with Brussels and the European Union and Russia, the project is suspended. Either way, the first and second scenarios mean there will be a delay in the construction in our country,” – she added.

The EU authorities seem to understand the need for an alternative pipeline that would allow bypassing Ukraine, which has seen little stability over last decades and it’s unlikely that it would see any in the nearest future, in case it will not cease to exist as a unity. When the EU started to tear the project apart, it started acting in its worst interests. This once again confirms that is a puppeteer behind all this – the United States. It no coincidence that Bulgaria has said it would put the South Stream project on a halt after John McCain’s visit to Sofia. If we recall that the US was one of the main sponsors and masterminds behind the coup in Ukraine, there will be a single conclusion to be made — the US strives to create a constant zone of turbulence between Russia and the EU.

Of course, one can only be amazed by the way Sofia and Belgrade treated the whole situation. After all, should Ukraine decide to stop the transit of gas they will be the first to suffer, since they have no alternative supply routes. The ruling parties in these countries are clearly acting against the interests of their people since they are too heavily dependent on the American support. And this despite the fact that the bilateral agreements on the “South Stream” were signed long before the adoption of the Third Energy Package. In addition, the rules of the package doesn’t specifically states that a company that owns gas, produces and sells it, has no right to own pipelines. It has no right to control it, transfer those rights to a third party. So no one can legally bind Gazprom to leave the project, but they would try by absolutely brazen and illegal political pressure and blackmail the US has been practicing for a while with little to no regard to the most powerful EU members or candidates for a membership ticket.

Understanding and Dismantling the Global Control System

Surviving the Matrix

Looking at the global situation from the perspective of fear is counterproductive. We need to look at it from a perspective of concern, and see the opportunity that lies in having the knowledge of the global situation. There are opportunities in all these problems. Many people, when they discover the global situation and discover the truth about the world we live in, they move straight into fear. This does not help alleviate the situation. It’s one thing to be aware of it, but it’s another thing to be working actively to rectify this problem – the problem of government corruption, the problem of corporatism, the problem of commerce being superimposed over the human experience to the point where money and economics is viewed as being more important than people and more important than life. Unfortunately this is the situation we currently face.

Many people in our society have grown quite accepting of this; they believe that if they don’t pay their bills then they should be removed from their houses and cast out onto the street. These bills are all contrived, and the way they are contrived is by superimposing a system of interest-based commerce over the minds of the people. Our money system itself is created by a private bank which charges the government interest on the use of their money, which immediately places everybody who uses money into a state of unofficially manufactured debt. This is a simplistic way of looking at it, and it is actually much worse than that. The banks manufacture the paper that we use as money. Money is in fact created when people take out loans. Because the paper that we use is privately printed, privately owned and privately run, there is a debt attached to using that paper. This has the effect of placing everybody within our society into a state of perpetual self-generating debt, which lasts their entire life and sometimes beyond; thereby passing that debt onto their children. All of this debt is contrived and manufactured, and is completely unnecessary.

Because the worth or value of people in our society is very much based on their economic or social standing (according to the parameters of this society), we tend to readily discard people below us on the social ladder – because we deem them to be of less worth or value than people who have substantial financial interests in the world. This is a programmed, fictional reality – people are quite literally trained to think this way. This is one of the main objectives of the modern education system. The education system has become more and more business-oriented as generations have gone by, and this makes it possible for sections of society to be discarded, one rung at a time, while the people above them on the social ladder never really believe that it could happen to them. However the entire system is designed to slowly move up the social ladder until it has discarded everybody except those who issue the currency. This will effectively create a two-tiered society whereby we will have a ruling elite and a working class.

There are many people who are quite well-off in the world at the moment who believe that they will be safe from this system, but ultimately they won’t. Eventually it will get that high on the social ladder, that everybody who does not control the money supply will be under the control of those who do.

We the people, should we choose to step into our power, can prevent all of this from happening; because it’s all happening due to fictional rules that public trustees have written on paper. It is important for people to bear in mind the uncomfortable truth that if we do not choose to step into our power then the situation just described will occur, because it is the only possible outcome of this money system. This is why this money system has been put in place, to create the two-tiered society separated only by those who perceive they have power between the ‘elite’ and the working class. These people with perceived power will be the police and government officials who sit in the middle. These people will be given small tokens of power to make them feel as though they have authority over people, which of course will serve to give them the confidence they need to oppress the working class.

If you take everybody’s power away from them, reduce people to the point where they are quite literally abject slaves without their knowledge and you start giving small tokens of power to people within the group, then their egos will always take over & they’ll start throwing their weight around. If you watch which people throw their weight around the heaviest, you find the sociopaths within the crowd. Those are the ones that the ‘elite’ elevate to positions of authority, because they know that they have no empathy, and that they are quite happy to harvest energy from the population around them.

By taking people’s inherent power and value from them, you effectively disconnect them from the true energy source of the universe, and the most ready source of energy for these people then becomes the people around them – and that’s where they harvest their energy. This is why people who are so disconnected make the best ‘leaders’ for this system.

The plan is to create a two-tiered society whereby the only separation between the two will be the controlling hand which controls the debt-slaves, all of whom are controlled and do the bidding of those who issue the paper. This process is going to be achieved and is in fact well under way. It is occurring all due to the parameters of a UN directive known as Agenda 21. When looking at Agenda 21, many people understand that it is a depopulation program; it is a program designed to corral humankind into manageable portions which will be achieved by placing them within controlled sections of population (concentrated areas), and to ‘return the Earth to nature’ (or at least that’s how it is presented to the world). However, they are not quite sure how it is going to be carried out. The reality is that Agenda 21 is being implemented right now, in a very subtle manner, using means which most people would consider to be completely unrelated, and yet which are all connected.

To see these connections, it is extremely important for people to realize that the money system – money itself – is the glue that is used to hold this control mechanism together. Money connects everything together and is the catalyst for the whole thing. When you look at the system of commerce that has been superimposed over our societies, and how it slowly moves up the rungs of the social ladder, where people are discarded according to their economic worth, you begin to see how the depopulation plan is coming into effect. When looking at concentrated pockets of civilization and ‘returning the Earth to nature’, one might ask, “How is this to be achieved?” Since many people live in rural areas. Well what happens if you destroy the ground-water in rural areas? People who do live in rural areas, who run farms, simply cannot stay there anymore. It simply doesn’t become viable to ship water in all the time. Not to mention the fact that the water that is coming out of the ground is now toxic. Enter coal seam gas mining, or fracking.

We don’t actually need gas as an energy source; there are other means of energy we could have. The Serbian scientist Nikola Tesla was going to give the whole world free energy back at the turn of the last century, and his financers wouldn’t allow him to do it because they realized they were not able to meter his energy device, and so therefore there was no economic gain in doing so. Many of the problems we face as a society, and many of the most pollutive industries on the planet, exist solely to meet our energy needs. Indeed it is the demand for energy which perpetuates these industries, and it is these industries which keep many people working. The demand for energy is one of the things that makes the modern world go round, and if people were to obtain access to free energy then it would most certainly free them from debt-slavery.

We don’t need to be harvesting coal seam gas in order to meet our energy needs – there are far better ways of doing things. So, what is the real purpose of coal seam gas? The only guaranteed outcome from having a gas well somewhere is that it is going to pollute the ground water below the gas well. This can be seen happening everywhere where gas wells have been. Methane is coming up in streams, tap-water has been catching fire and wells are being polluted. This obviously is the real purpose of coal seam gas mining. This is effectively driving people out of the rural areas, away from their traditional farm lands, and forcing them into concentrated pockets of civilization. This will be ongoing; if you watch this over the next few years you’re going to see more and more people moving from their farms, being forced to as it is too toxic to live there anymore. This is how these sections of population are being cleared and forced to move into the cities. It isn’t about returning the rural areas to nature; it is about making those areas available for sustainable resource practices.

Sustainable resource practices are about sustaining the industry for as long as possible – doing whatever you can to make sure you can keep exploiting the area. That is what sustainable development is all about. It is just wrapped up in a package and painted green so that people will think it is ecologically friendly, when it is exactly the opposite.

There are new laws being introduced in the UK which will effectively outlaw homelessness. People are made homeless due to the economic model; homelessness and the discarding of the population is a natural by-product of this corrupt economic system. Couple this with coal seam gas mining and the pollution of the water, and the introduction of GM crops which effectively cause sterility in those who consume them over successive generations. Tests carried out on animals clearly result in sterility by the third generation in all animals that have been tested consuming GM food. All this is Agenda 21 in motion – depopulation.

It is easy to force people into consuming GM foods simply by placing them in positions of poverty, and providing unlabelled GM food at low prices in supermarkets. The low-priced ‘value’ brands are likely GM, and all are designed to de-populate what is perceived to be the lower-classes of society – those who are not economically viable. This system does everything it can to ensure that people remain in a state which is not economically viable. Another way this is done is through a process of total criminalization. The concept of total criminalization is something which is very attractive to governments because if you make everybody a criminal, suddenly everyone becomes uniform in the eyes of the law.

The way they do this is by gradually introducing more and more laws, so that eventually almost everything becomes a crime. This includes all the things you would normally do as a normal, functioning human being. They then attach fines to these breaches of so-called law, again placing economic stress on people. This again leads to homelessness, which eventually leads to prison terms, and of course those in prison are being fed GM foods. So here we see how the introduction of legislation is again contributing towards the UN depopulation program.

There is something very important to understand about legislation, when looking at why there is so much crime in the world today. The reason there is so much crime is because the government is introducing more and more legislation thereby making almost everything a crime. The more legislation that is enacted, the more crime is created. That is the main purpose of legislation – it isn’t to keep people safe, it is to create crime and thereby create the mechanism by which the wealth of the people may be extracted from them via fines and jail terms.

All of these things are ongoing; they are happening right now. While all of these little, subtle things are happening in society, designed to place people in a state of manufactured financial stress, people aren’t noticing it because they are distracted waiting for a big cataclysm such as a financial crash or the outbreak of World War III. And so people are not paying attention to what is happening all around them right now, and they’re not seeing how it all connects together.

The ‘divide and conquer’ strategy has worked very effectively on our society, and that is the main reason these problems still exist and, no matter what we do, things just keep going along in the same direction. This is because we are attempting to use the parameters of the system to deal with the system, when really we have the potential and the power to step above the system and rain the whole thing in – and hold our public trustees accountable for their actions. We have the power to do this, but it will only be achieved by a united community. That type of unity will only ever be achieved by people who are willing to respect one another.

The solution is as simple as people changing their perspective and their attitude, not only towards the people around them, but also towards themselves. The lack of respect for other people always has its basis in one’s lack of respect for themselves. This is a programmed reality which people are forced to endure simply by operating in the parameters of the system. This is a very clever system and it is designed to completely mess-up the human psyche, and you’ve got to give it 10 points for effectiveness.

However, that being said, the tide is about to turn – things are about to change. It will however require the participation of the people in order for it to happen. I genuinely believe that’s what this time in history is about, and things are indeed about to change. More and more people are beginning to question this reality and question this system. Something people can do, when looking at this whole system – social, economic or government, is to ask themselves if their life is one of comfort and abundance; and if it isn’t, to ask themselves why. Why are you forced to run so hard on the treadmill? Why are you forced to be enslaved to an economic model which is interest-based and designed to place you in scarcity? Why is our system like this? Why are there laws making it illegal to feed homeless people? Why is it that when a supermarket throws food out at the end of the day, they put it in a locked bin and won’t simply give it to poor people? Why are they attempting to bring in laws which may outlaw homelessness? Why do we have a system which was created by mankind to serve mankind’s needs, and yet mankind has become the most expendable thing within its parameters?

When you ask yourself these questions it becomes clear that what has happened to our societies is that we have had a slavery system gradually superimposed over our reality. Thus in the modern world today, virtually everybody is forced to live in a state of perpetual or self-generating debt as soon as they are old enough to work. What we have here is ‘people farming’; we have human trafficking by debt-slavery, whereby every person within this society has been turned into a commodity. Turned into a mechanism by which the criminal, ruling banksters at the top of the food-chain are able to harvest your wealth.

Real wealth is not measured in terms of possessions; it cannot be judged in terms of financial security. Real wealth is your life; your health. What makes you wealthy is if you are a happy, healthy person living in a good environment. The banksters harvest your time, your health and your life – they harvest you.

It is extremely important for people to see the reality of this, and it is very much necessary for people to understand that this is a system that is wholly supported and perpetuated by governments. The reason that governments are able to get away with it is because the people have forgotten what their place in the social hierarchy is. People have forgotten that governments are public servants – public trustees; we actually sit above them in the food-chain. They are in fact our employees. Through the imposition of the government-controlled education system, this knowledge has been gradually educated out of the masses. Meanwhile the bills and laws have been raised and raised, and people have been taught to run faster and faster on the treadmill, so that now they’re running flat-out and they don’t even realize that their running. This means of course that they never really have time to look around them and notice what is going on, and how this system is run.

When you start to see how the system is run, it becomes obvious that we’re being scammed by the very people we employ to manage our infrastructure for us and to keep us safe. These are the very people who we appoint to positions of trust to manage our society in an honest, caring and decent manner. Our public servants are not doing that; they are all in breach of trust, and they are using the power we give them to steal the wealth of all of our nations. It is about time we paid attention to this fact. If we were to pay attention to it, from the perspective of a respectful and therefore empowered community, we could change this situation in a day. There is a real need for us to do this.

When looking at the world today, one must ask the questions: How far are we prepared to go? How much are we prepared to take? Are we prepared to allow our planet to be destroyed and the lives of the people around us to be ruined simply because some people wrote some words down on a piece of paper, and dared to call it law? Is that what it takes to control us? Is that all it takes to decimate the human species – simply writing something down on a piece of paper? Is that all it takes to remove the will of the people, and to force them to comply with their own destruction? Are we so confused as to what reality is that we really believe this fictional paper-based world is real?

People are waking up in vast numbers all around the world, and are beginning to question the fiction. The more a government attempts to lock society down, the more people wake up to the control mechanism. So ultimately the government, and the control system itself, is bringing about its own demise. The system is ramping up the control grid so much now and in such a hurried manner. The people who are doing it are stumbling; they’re making mistakes and making their presence known. More and more people are becoming empowered with the knowledge of who and what they are – and that is truly a beautiful thing. The key word in this control system is ‘fiction’. We can step above the entire thing once we remember who and what we are and choose to stand in our power.

Nobody controls the vessel that you inhabit. The only mind that controls your flesh is yourself. Anybody who claims otherwise is running a slavery system. Once you become aware of it you start to see the way out of the slavery system. It has to be done with respect and in a peaceful manner. Once you understand how the system works, and when you truly understand and respect yourself, then you really don’t see any need to conduct yourself otherwise anyway. Because if you do, really all you’re doing is playing right into their hands. There is a far better way of doing things. The way to conduct yourself in any of these situations is from a perspective of empowerment and respect. It all comes down to the individual, and always has.

There are a lot of movements, currently being waged in the world, against many of the problems that we face. But all too often these organizations are still attempting to use the legal system to find a way of making a stand against the actions of our corrupt governments. By doing this what they are failing to see is that the modern legal system was not constructed to afford people remedy, but rather to tie people up in red tape and to protect the system. The legal system was designed by the system in order to protect itself. So we are never going to find a remedy for our current situation by using the parameters that are given to us by the system. What we need to do is remember or place in the social hierarchy, step above it, and hold our public trustees in breach of trust. This could be done through something like a People’s Mandate. If you could get enough people together in your country to mandate your will to the government and instruct them to carry out that will, then if they wish to maintain the facade of being a democratic and fair system they will have no choice but to comply with the will of the people. Failure to abide by a People’s Mandate, properly delivered to our elected trustees, would mean that the government has abdicated its right to govern – and would be required to step down. Again, this could only happen if people choose to respect each other.

Ultimately, when you look at this situation, the solution to all of the problems we face always comes down to the people themselves. The power to change the world is in the hands of each individual. The key to your own salvation is in your heart, and the key to changing this world is in applying your heart, energy and respect to the people around you and to the world at large. If we do this, we can change things. The question is: What is it going to take for that to happen? Participation is all it would take. There is nobody on the Earth who really has any more power than anybody else. The only power that people perceive they have is the power they are granted from others who choose to give their own power away. Once one becomes aware of the situation, and aware of the fact that these choices do exist, things can be viewed very differently. From the very moment that you wake up to the machinations of this control system, you are given the conscious choice whether to participate in this system or not. Refuse to comply with any piece of legislation which interferes with your moral compass. Ultimately there is only one law on this planet: Do No Harm. Any legislation that contravenes that law is no law, and is entitled to no obedience.

Dismantling the Global Control System

The way to fix all of the problems we face in the world is to remove fear from our consciousness. Something that is very beneficial and helpful in removing that fear is to understand what reality is, and how reality works. By incorporating a right-brain understanding into your perception of reality, you can literally change reality – you can change your personal reality anyway. I have attracted so many different things into my life – people, places, experiences, etc. simply by following the synchronicity in my life that becomes more apparent the more I open up my right brain.

You find that reality wants to interact with you, but you only want to interact with reality. It’s like we feel that our input is all that matters; we don’t consider the input of reality itself. You find that you’re actually part of this ongoing dialogue between you and reality. It’s like a conversation that’s going on between yourself and the Universe, but you’re not listening. It’s like you’re having a conversation with someone but you’re wearing ear-plugs, you can’t hear what is being said to you, and you’re the one who’s doing all the talking. We talk to each other, we might talk to our animals, but we don’t talk to the energy field around us. Well we do talk to it but we don’t listen to what it says back to us – probably because we don’t realize we’re talking to it energetically, when in fact we are.

There is an electromagnetic interaction going on between you and the surrounding energy field all the time, but you simply don’t realize that this is actually a language that you are speaking because you’ve forgotten what the language is, and you don’t have the higher senses active that are required to perceive and comprehend this language. One of the biggest obstacles to you ever accessing these higher senses, and ever understanding this language, is fear. It is the vibration that fear sets up within your body / system / energy field. This is why our entire society, and everything about it, is all based on fear. It is fear-based mind control. They control your mind so that you don’t perceive anything outside of a left-brain reality; the five-sense perception that you have of reality.

When you have this understanding, and you finally comprehend what reality is and how it works, then fear just falls away from you. You begin to see that there really is nothing to fear, and that the only real problem is the vibration of fear itself – that is the problem. I see people in fear about the world that is being created, but really it’s just the propagation of fear. The terrible world that they are so in fear of is only being created because of their failure to face that fear. That fear is the same fear that is in themselves, and that serves to keep them separate from the people around them. You have to break down the fear, and let go of the fear.

To move forward from this point you have to let go of everything that you perceived to be reality, let go of everything that you perceived to be important to you. Of course your family and friends are important to you, but objects and ‘stuff’ that we collect really don’t mean anything, they don’t make us who we are. What makes us who we are is what energy lies within our hearts.

You have to let go of what you believed, what you cared about, what you perceived about yourself and how you perceived others. Let go of everything that has happened in your life up to this point, simply focus on the Now, and the future that we could create if we were to do this. Just let go of all of that stuff that you’ve being carrying around for years. Realize that all of it is a product of this system. All of it is a product of the perception we have been taught to have of what reality is. Let go of judgement, revenge, and all the animosity you feel towards everybody. All of these things are simply mirrors; they are opportunities to address certain emotions that may be raised within yourself. All of these negative emotions are things that you need to experience because all of them are opportunities for healing and change.

If something is making you feel bad, you need to change that. The only way you can change that bad feeling is by embracing it and feeling it; understanding why you feel that feeling – making that feeling one with yourself, and thereby neutralizing it so you can move on to address the next mirror and the next negative emotion that you have. All of these emotions are fear-based, and mostly it’s a fear of looking within and facing that which we see within ourselves.

Any bad feelings you have about anybody else – that’s not them, that’s you, because you are the one creating that feeling. You can feel your body change, your heartbeat raise. Your body chemistry literally changes and you start feeling strange when you’re having these negative feelings around people. This shows that a physical effect is actually caused within your body and it’s not a healthy effect. It’s what makes you sick, and creates illness in your body. That’s what these negative feelings and emotions do, and they only affect you – they don’t affect other people – and they’re all fear-based. You have got to let go of all of this.

Once we can let go of all of these feelings and animosity, and realize that everybody who ever wronged us only did so because of what they had perceived reality to be up to that point, then it’s easy to forgive them. It is easy to forgive anything that anybody has done because now we have an opportunity to welcome them home, to bring the whole human race back to where it should be. This is happening right now, and it is how consciousness will evolve; but people have to choose to do it, to participate, and when they do true enlightenment will happen. That’s how we can change the direction of mankind and all life on this planet. We are currently heading for complete destruction in order to support an economic system which isn’t real. It’s just numbers on a screen, pieces of paper, words and figures that people make up. It has nothing to do with reality, the world or the human race and it doesn’t benefit anybody.

It is remarkable when you really look at humankind, and you see this economic leviathan that we’ve created in order to exploit the resources of the planet and each other. Many people are in such an incredible state of fear should anything ever happen to this system, because if the system were to break down they would feel as though their life had simply decayed before their eyes. And yet the life that they are living, at the hands of this system, and the way people take this system for granted, is what has caused all of the problems that we currently see upon this planet.

On the other side of the spectrum you have people who can see the system for what it is, but they live in a state of fear of what the system is becoming and they speak out about it from a state of fear. Yet on both sides of the fence we find that people still argue with each other; they still have ‘stuff’ with their neighbours. They won’t ever face the fear, within themselves, that perpetuates that which they fear externally. It’s really a remarkable state that human consciousness finds itself in.

I have a feeling that a lot is about to change, and that there are some very big things stirring with the change in energy that’s happening and the shift in consciousness that is occurring. It is still difficult to see people in big cities showing any signs of positive change, but this sort of thing will come later as the world changes around them. I really do feel a huge expansion in human awareness and human consciousness taking place, and I believe that the plan of the ‘elite’ may actually be backfiring as awareness is growing.

People are beginning to see that all of the separate problems they’ve all been addressing are all simply symptoms of the one larger problem, and they are searching for ways to address this one larger problem. I believe the answer lies in knowing who and what you are, and being able to stand in that. People need to stay focused on the actual problem, which is the fact that our servants – the public servants that we call government, the public trustees that we employ to ensure we have a viable future – have left their path and are all acting in breach of trust. That’s the problem and once we establish this we can change the system, and it needs to be done very quickly.

We need to immediately cancel all debt absolutely. You don’t owe anything to anybody. If you owe money to the bank, you don’t owe it any more. You don’t owe your mortgage, you don’t owe your bill to the credit card company. You don’t owe anybody any money, and you’ve got what you have now. Four years ago I cancelled all ‘debt’ in my own life, in a single day, by immediately declaring No Contract with any entity that claimed I owed them money. All their mail was returned unopened, and within a few months all attempted communication ceased. As a sovereign you have the power to cancel all debt whenever you like, because all of it is a contrived fiction – a nonsense (see No Contract Return To Sender – Label Explanation).

Cancel all the debt and that suddenly gets everybody out of this situation of fear-based mind control, and we can work out what sort of a future we would like to create. Work together to create a future that is viable, sustainable, beneficial to mankind, and something that helps support all life upon the earth.

I genuinely believe that consciousness is shifting, and that there is a very big awakening happening all over this planet. However I would suggest that, in order for it to happen effectively, people have to participate. People have to gain a better understanding of what reality is. They need to immerse themselves in their consciousness, and immerse that consciousness into creation. There is no force that is going to ‘flick a switch’ whereby humankind suddenly becomes enlightened. There is no event that is going to suddenly cause your higher senses to activate, unless you choose to participate in your own evolutionary process.

In regards to evolution, I’m not referring to Darwinian evolution. Darwinian evolution doesn’t work – it’s ridiculous, it makes no sense at all. Species do not turn into other species. What evolves is Consciousness – the energy that all is made from. All it takes is for the frequency of this energy to rise, because higher frequency creates a greater complexity of form, of Consciousness; a greater awareness in Consciousness.

We came from the highest source there is. We came ultimately from the mind of the Creator itself, whatever you perceive the Creator to be. All of the levels that people wish to go through are simply different steps on the ladder that leads to home. Everything is a path home; everything we are experiencing is a journey to that ultimate place from which we came. The awakening that is happening is truly more of a remembering, but in order for it to happen you need to participate in reality. You need to apply yourself to what is going on around you, and you need to let go of the baggage that’s preventing you from doing so. Stop holding grudges against people, stop carrying all that stuff around with you, and stop profiting from people. Stop putting a monetary value on everything. Stop buying information from people and stop selling people information. Simply move into your heart and do the right thing in all that you do, stay in that energy and apply it to the world and the people around you. Most importantly, apply it to yourself.

We judge people badly often because we are trained and taught to judge people badly. It’s difficult to justify these feelings because the people who have done the wrong thing by you, or in general, have very often done so because they were never given an even playing field to begin with. People are thrown into the parameters of the psychopathic system and they’re told to make it work, but very often we just can’t make it work. The result is dysfunctional people and dysfunctional society. You really can’t blame people for what they’ve done, because this system is designed to reward sociopathic activity, and it is designed to squash anybody who operates in empathy and compassion.

If people can understand the energetic nature of reality and truly grasp the concept that they are interacting with the field around them, electromagnetically, in everything they do and every emotion that they feel, they will start interacting with each other differently and interacting with the field differently. If we put down all the ‘stuff’ we believe we have with each other, stand together and turn to face this system, then we will make a difference. But if we can’t do that, then we will simply continue down the path towards our own self-destruction – which is where we are being led by our politicians.

There is more to reality than what you may perceive there to be. There is a higher harmonic to all of this, and if we can start changing the way we interact and changing the emotional basis of the interaction that we have with people, then I believe we can create a very different world. But it is up to each of us to understand how this works and to apply it to our own lives.

Ultimately it all really comes down to respect. We have been taught not to respect each other, and this has worked to a large extent because we don’t generally respect ourselves enough. We may in some ways, but we don’t in the truest and real ways. This is mainly because we judge ourselves by fictional parameters. We are given certain parameters by society; we’re told that we need to live up to these economic and social parameters in order to be successful, and if we don’t do so we tend to judge ourselves poorly, and we tend to not respect ourselves. We are always looking for ourselves in that which is external to ourselves – and that’s not where we’re going to find the truth. The truth is only ever going to be found in your own heart; that is where you have to look. When you do, and you apply that to the world around you, that’s when we can really make a difference.

What we have here is the greatest opportunity we’ve ever had for real human freedom. It’s just up to each of us to recognize this opportunity and to embrace it.

Obama’s Doctrine of Destruction of America as we know it, and the March to a New World Order

06/26/2014

http://www.pakalertpress.com/

TRUTHER

We could not have a better person in office than President Obama, if you want someone to do everything he can to destroy the country that is. This President has gone out of his way to make sure not only just a few of his Socialist policies ruin us, but that his whole time in office is dedicated to the destruction of the United States as we know it.

From supplying terrorist organizations such as Al Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood, and countless other Islamic Jihadists in N. Africa, the Mid-East, Indonesia, and Europe with billions of dollars in weapons, billions in financial aid, and actual military help, to purposely busing and flying in hundreds of thousand illegal aliens per day via Homeland Security.

This President expects his agenda of anti-Americanism to continue with breaking our economy and with the EPA’s anti CO2 regulations, which are based on guess work from UN climate organizations and not concrete scientific evidence.

We also have the countless scandals which amount to crimes perpetrated by this President. From Benghazi to the IRS situation, where Conservatives are targeted by the IRS for their voices of opposition to the Administration, we now have a Socialist Dictator in office who has declared war on any American who stands with the Constitution as the rule of law.

We now have the dirtiest most corrupt President ever to hold office, making Richard M. Nixon look like the most honest President we ever had, when comparing the two. At least Nixon loved America; Obama hates the very core of American values of which make us great.

A President, who loves his country, would not aid enemies who have only our destruction in mind. Yet, Obama has made his whole foreign policy about helping terrorist organizations gain control of countries.

Last year, in Obama’s quest to aid Al Qaeda and other terrorist factions fighting in Syria by wanting to bomb the Assad regime, we now see these same Islamic factions taking over Iraq via all the aid in arms, money, and military training we did supply them. It stands to reason that Obama does not want to help the Iraq government since his vision was to see Islamists take power across the Mid-East in the first place.

Obama and John Kerry have done everything possible to damage beyond recognition the friendship the US has had with key allies such as Israel and Russia. Today, we stand in opposition to Israel because of Obama’s agenda to transform the Mid-East into a region completely run by terrorist organizations, labeling Israel as an oppressive state and doing everything possible short of cutting ties with them altogether.

We now live in a Cold War atmosphere with Russia over events in Ukraine, which were stoked by our own CIA in the first place.

The Benghazi cover up is clear to anyone who has been following US foreign policy. This Administration has to keep these events swept under the rug since it was the very terrorist organizations the Obama Administration is supporting who are responsible for killing Americans on that day.

Because of the massive opposition to the Obama Administration’s desire to grant Amnesty to millions of Illegal Aliens, the President has given orders for all Border Patrol agents to stand down and has Homeland Security busing and flying hundreds of thousands of Illegals into the US daily from Central America with the help of the drug cartels.

The recent Federal land grab in New Mexico is also part of the Obama strategy in creating a flood of illegal immigrants.

So, now, instead of having hundreds cross our southern border each day, we now have thousands getting a free ride here daily.

Aside from all of this, we are supposed to believe the IRS lost some two years of Lois Learner’s E-Mails. In the light of the massive domestic spying by the NSA, CIA, and other clandestine organizations on American citizens, we know this isn’t a problem since these organizations do have these E-Mails.


Beyond the Waiting Lists, New Senate Report Reveals a Culture of Crime Cover Up and Coercion within the VA

06/25/2014

TOM COBURNUS SENATOR FROM OKLAHOMA  June 25, 2014

(WASHINGTON, D.C.) – U.S. Senator and doctor Tom Coburn, M.D. (R-OK), today released his new oversight report “Friendly Fire: Death, Delay, and Dismay at the VA.”  The report is based on a year-long investigation of VA hospitals around the nation that chronicled the inappropriate conduct and incompetence within the VA that led to well-documented deaths and delays.  The report also exposes the inept congressional and agency oversight that allowed rampant misconduct to grow unchecked.

“This report shows the problems at the VA are worse than anyone imagined.  The scope of the VA’s incompetence – and Congress’ indifferent oversight – is breathtaking and disturbing.  This investigation found the problems at the VA are far deeper than just scheduling.  Over the past decade, more than 1,000 veterans may have died as a result of the VA’s misconduct and the VA has paid out nearly $1 billion to veterans and their families for its medical malpractice.  As is typical with any bureaucracy, the excuse for not being able to meet goals is a lack of resources.  But this is not the case at the VA where spending has increased rapidly in recent years,” Dr. Coburn said.

“The Administration and Congress have failed to ensure our nation is living up to the promises we have made to our veterans,” Dr. Coburn added.  “As a physician who has personally cared for hundreds of Oklahoma veterans, this is intolerable.  As a senator, I’m determined to address the structural challenges of the Department of Veterans Affairs so we can end this national disgrace and improve quality and access to health care for our veterans.  But make no mistake.  Whatever bill Congress passes cannot ignore the findings of this report.  While it is good that Congress feels a sense of urgency we are at this point because Congress has ignored or glossed over too many similar warnings in the past.  Our sense of urgency should come from the scope of the problem, not our proximity to an election.”

Key findings in the report include:

A CULTURE OF MANIPULATION PERMEATES THE DEPARTMENT.

  • The cover up of waiting lists for doctor’s appointments at the VA is just the tip of the iceberg, reflecting a perverse culture within the department where veterans are not always the priority and data and employees are manipulated to maintain an appearance that all is well.
  • Bad employees are rewarded with bonuses and paid leave while whistleblowers, health care providers, and even veterans and their families are subjected to bullying, sexual harassment, abuse, and neglect.  For example, female patients received unnecessary pelvic and breast exams from a sex offender, a noose was left on the desk of a minority employee by a co-worker, and a nurse who murdered a veteran harassed the family of the deceased to get them to admit guilt for the death.
  • The care at more centers is getting worse and some VA health care providers have lost their medical licenses, and the VA is hiding this information from patients.
  • Delays exist for more than just doctors’ appointments—disability claims, construction, urgent care, and registries are also slow or behind schedule.
  • Despite a nursing shortage, many VA nurses spend their days conducting union activities to advocate for better conditions for themselves rather than veterans.

VA MADE WAITING LISTS WORSE.

  • As waiting lines were growing, the VA expanded eligibility in 2009 to those who already had insurance without any service related injuries, making the delays longer.
  • Despite having the authority to do so, the VA was reluctant to let vets off the waiting lists by freeing them go to doctors outside of its system while sitting on hundreds of millions of dollars intended for health care that went unspent year to year.
  • VA doctors are seeing far fewer patients than private doctors and some even leave work early.

VA EMPLOYEES BEHAVE AS IF THEY ARE ABOVE THE LAW.

  • Criminal activity at the department is pervasive, including drug dealing, theft, and even murder.  A VA police chief even conspired to kidnap, rape and murder women and children.
  • Many VA doctors and staff are overpaid and underworked, some are paid not to work and more and more employees are not even showing up for work.

THE VA WASTES AND MISMANAGES BILLIONS OF DOLLARS.

  • The report identifies $20 billion in waste and mismanagement that could have been better spent providing health care to veterans.
  • The federal government has paid out $845 million for VA medical malpractice since 2001.
  • Most VA construction projects are over budget and behind schedule, inflating costs by billions of dollars.

THE SENATE VETERANS AFFAIRS COMMITTEE HAS BEEN AWOL WHEN IT COMES TO KEEPING PROMISES MADE TO VETERANS.

  • The Senate Veterans Affairs Committee largely ignored the warnings about delays and dysfunction at the VA for decades, abdicating its oversight responsibilities and choosing to make new promises to veterans rather than making sure those promises already made were being kept.
  • This report details how Congress was repeatedly alerted and warned of the problems plaguing the VA over decades.
  • The Senate Veterans Affairs Committee has only held two oversight hearings the last four years, and was even profiled in Wastebook 2012 for being among the committees in Congress holding the fewest number of hearings.

Russia China deals move US Dollar closer to collapse

06/24/2014

http://www.whiteoutpress.com/articles/2014/q2/russia-china-deals-move-us-dollar-closer-collapse/

St. Petersburg, Russia.

Here’s a fact you will occasionally hear on America’s investment cable channels – the US Dollar should be completely worthless right now. If not for decades of tradition, convenience and the threat of military annihilation, the Dollar would be worthless now and the US possibly collapsed into revolution. China and Russia just took steps to make that happen by doing what America’s experts promised they never would. Because if they did, it would spell doom for America.

US Dollars have been flooding the globe since 2008.

Bottom of Form

Most Americans don’t speak the language of ‘Washington’ or ‘Wall Street’, so we’ll explain what’s going on in plain old American. The US government and Wall Street banks have spent six years printing trillions of US Dollars out of thin air and flooding the world market with paper money backed by nothing more than the benefit of stability and the threat of the US military. Based on every example from history, Americans should be using wheel barrels full of cash just to buy a loaf of bread for $10,000. But it hasn’t happen, yet. Unfortunately for the American people, China and Russia just took the first few steps to insure it happens and happens very soon.

Quantitative Easing

That’s what the US government and Wall Street are calling their unprecedented experiment of printing trillions of dollars in un-backed currency and then lending it to itself and to the largest Wall Street banks at near-zero percent interest. It was a joint Democrat-Republican scheme carried out by both the Bush and Obama administrations. It was successful in one regard. The richest Americans are even richer now thanks to US stock markets breaking record highs on an almost daily basis since Quantitative Easing began. But in reality, it’s nothing more than ‘trickle down economics’, which as we all know, never trickles down.

Wikipedia describes Quantitative Easing saying, ‘On November 25, 2008, the Federal Reserve announced that it would purchase up to $600 billion in agency mortgage-backed securities (MBS) and debt…On March 18, 2009, the FOMC announced that the program would be expanded by an additional $750 billion in purchases of agency MBS and agency debt and $300 billion in purchases of Treasury securities.’

That was just QE-1. There have since been multiple rounds, with the most notable being an ongoing $80 billion per month in new, un-backed money being put into circulation. Why do they keep expanding the program and refuse to end it even though their original promises guaranteed it would only be a short-term fix to save the US economy and was supposed to end years ago? Because it’s been a catastrophic failure, with many experts warning the catastrophe is right around the corner for America.

Wall Street games

To the movers and shakers on Wall Street and the wealthiest Americans, it’s all just a game, just like Monopoly and the Monopoly money now being used as our nation’s currency. We at Whiteout Press once explained Quantitative Easing by saying, imagine you’re playing Monopoly. Imagine you lose. But instead of playing by the rules, you run to the store and buy 10 more Monopoly games, taking out the money and using it to continue playing the original game you went bankrupt in. That’s exactly what the US federal government began doing in the three final months of the Bush administration and every month since.

The problem is the other players, known as the world’s countries and all of humanity. They know the game is now broken, rigged and basically over. The only reason they continue playing is because it’s the only game there is to play. And that’s where China and Russia just took the first few steps to end the existing game and start a new one. And here the American people sit, still wanting to play the game they dominate by cheating, buried under a mountain of worthless Monopoly money that nobody wants or needs anymore.

 

Global reserve currency

One reason the US Dollar still has any value at all is because it’s used by countries around the world as the ‘global reserve currency’. Unlike most national currencies, the US Dollar has always been dependable, and more importantly, circulated in every nation on Earth. When one country wants to do a deal with another country, they use US Dollars because every nation has them and uses them. The Dollar doesn’t typically fluctuate in value and it shouldn’t go insolvent anytime soon, until now.

The world has been watching the shenanigans America’s Democratic and Republican leaders have done to prop up the US dollar and the US economy to prevent its total collapse just a little longer. Unless every man, woman and child in America can come up with a half million dollars to repay the world all the money they owe them, the United States is on the verge of the biggest debt default in mankind’s history. And the American people can’t even make it from paycheck to paycheck, much less come up with an average $1.5 million per family. Heck, half the American people have a net worth of zero or below these days.

Russia-China dagger to America’s heart

With such a politically charged topic and trillions of dollars on the line, who do you trust to get the real story from – Aljazeera, CNBC, or the American Free Press Newspaper? It doesn’t matter – they’re all reporting the exact same thing for a change. And that is that Russia and China have signed deals to end the use of the US Dollar as the two countries’ currency of choice. From now on, the two economic powerhouses will move to do business using each other’s currencies instead.

While the two countries represent only a fraction of the US Dollars used in global business by the world’s nations, as American economists and government officials are sure to remind us, it actually doesn’t matter. The US Dollar is not backed by gold or even basic math. It’s backed by the full faith and credit of the United States. And the fact is, the world no longer has much faith in America’s rigged economic system, its worthless paper money flooding the globe, or its ability to pay back the $130 trillion it’s currently and legally on the hook for. That’s what gives the US Dollar its value – faith and creditworthiness – and both are just about gone.

American grassroots reporting

‘The New World Order’s nightmare may be just beginning,’ was the first line of a news report from American Free Press Newspaper yesterday, ‘On April 24th, the Russian government organized a special meeting dedicated to finding a solution for getting rid of the US dollar in [their] export operations.’ The outlet spoke to Michael S. Coffman, Ph.D, economic expert and author of the book, ‘Plundered: How Progressive Ideology is Destroying America’ (get your own copy by clicking on the ad to the right).

When asked what the China-Russia agreement to dump the US Dollar meant for America, Coffman replied, “In four words, it would be devastating. BRICS countries [Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa] are dead serious about attacking the US dollar and taking it out of circulation. In fact, the Chinese are buying as much gold as possible to make their Yuan the world reserve currency.”

Michael Coffman went on to explain what is on track to happen, and is already happening, “If the US Dollar comes under attack and more countries use Rubles or the Yuan, the US will be flooded with trillions of dollars returning to our country with no place to go. We’ll see inflation or even hyperinflation. Rising inflation naturally leads to skyrocketing interest rates. This means the $415 billion we currently spend for interest payments on our national debt could more than double to over a trillion dollars per year.”

The Wall Street take

After hosting Russian President Vladimir Putin and other dignitaries at a CNBC-sponsored event two weeks ago, the network reiterated the facts stated above, albeit in less panicked language. They confirmed that China and Russia had signed deals to not only buy and sell energy, but do it in their own currencies instead of US Dollars from now on. The report also confirmed another less-reported story that both of Russia’s and China’s largest banks also signed a deal to dump the US Dollar and use the Ruble and Yuan.

CNBC briefly explained what that means to the American people reporting, ‘With the two developing nations trading outside of the US Dollar, many questions are being raised about what this would do for the greenback and for the US. The Dollar’s status as the global reserve currency has allowed the US to borrow large sums of money, effectively living beyond its means, because there is always a demand for its currency.’

For those New World Order watchers out there, CNBC may have let the cat out of the bag when it quoted one Wall Street analyst suggesting that if and when the US Dollar collapses and the world’s nations switch to another global currency, it may not be the Euro, Ruble, Yuan or gold. It may be a little-known financial vehicle called, ‘Special Drawing Rights’. The network describes SDR’s as, ‘a supplementary asset maintained by the International Monetary Fund.’

View from the East

Aljazeera echoed the above reports with similar accounts from Russian economists. ‘In a symbolic blow to US global financial hegemony, Russia and China took a small step toward undercutting the domination of the US Dollar as the international reserve currency,’ the publication reported. It also quoted one Russian financial analyst explaining, “Breaking the dominance of the US Dollar in international trade between the BRICS is something that the group has been talking about for some time.”

Interestingly, the report documents an impression common among both Chinese and Russian leaders who apparently see the American juggernaut ending its two-decade obsession with Middle East dominance, turning its sites on the Russian East and the Chinese Far East now. In response, Aljazeera reports, ‘The bank deal is another indicator that Russia and China are in the middle of a wider rapprochement, which analysts say is premised not on ideological alignment but on a mutual desire to undercut the US in their respective spheres of influence.’

The account goes on to explain, ‘Both countries are wary of President Barack Obama’s “pivot east,” a recalibration of US foreign policy away from decades of war in the Middle East and toward the fast-growing economies of the East. Cynical observers have interpreted the shift as an effort to contain China.’ One analyst was a bit more blunt explaining to the media outlet, “China sees the dominance of the Dollar in international trade transactions as a remnant of American global dominance, which they hope to overthrow in the years ahead.”

Why the Fed Is Nothing to Celebrate

06/23/2014

http://us1.campaign-archive2.com/?u=bf16b152ccc444bdbbcc229e4&id=4e3cd39a2f&e=ba977b782f

 By Benjamin M. Wiegold

The Federal Reserve System turned 100 years old last December and Fed supporters have been celebrating ever since. In recent months, the Dallas Fed opened an historical exhibit, the Kansas City Fed released a documentary, and the New York Fed even started a Facebook page, all to commemorate the date.

The mainstream media has also been vocal, as CNN posted a piece claiming Janet Yellen’s becoming the first female chair is an “apt way to mark the anniversary,” while National Review published an article of their own. Although the two outlets differ on politics, it seems nearly everyone agrees the Fed has fulfilled its purpose: grow the economy and prevent economic downturns.

Simon Jack of BBC news recorded a short video along these same lines. He refers to the Fed as “one of the most powerful institutions on earth” and to the boardroom specifically as “the nerve center of the global economy”; indeed, as the “most important room in the financial world.” One could be taken aback at his excessive praise, except that these statements are largely true: the Fed runs a counterfeiting monopoly, making it powerful beyond belief.

Jack alludes to this fact, yet overall he asserts that the Fed is divorced from politics. This is beneficial, he says, because it “allows them to do radical things when necessary,” such as Paul Volker raising interest rates in the 1970’s to combat price inflation. Thus he cites a supposedly prevalent expression among bankers, investors, and even presidents: don’t fight the Fed.

It’s curious then that Fed chairs are appointed by the president and approved by Congress. To claim neither has power over the happenings down the road is preposterous. And just as the Fed is staffed with former officials of the big banks, the banks themselves are influential in presidential elections (as Goldman Sachs, one of Bush’s largest donors, was one of Obama’s too).

Realistically, both the Fed and the president (not to mention the banking elite) possess extraordinary power which can be enhanced when working together. As Jack vaguely explains, the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) determines the money supply, interest rates, and how much “quantitative easing” there should be: decisions with implications around the world.

Of course this is true, but throughout the entire feel-good discussion (and others like it) a main feature of the Federal Reserve System is left conspicuously unmentioned: fractional reserve-banking.

People deposit money at a bank under agreement that whenever they so choose, they can withdraw their money in full. For the bank to be able to fulfill this obligation, it must keep as reserves the total balance deposited by its customers. Banks, then, are nothing more than warehouses for money, issuing receipts (money substitutes) in exchange for deposits. If depositors seek to withdraw their cash but the bank doesn’t have it on hand, the bank will be deemed insolvent – an event referred to as a “bank failure.”

Before the Federal Reserve Act, banks often held only a fraction of their liabilities as reserves because by loaning out a portion of it — even though it was their customers’ property – they could make serious dough through collecting interest. The only problem they encountered were bank runs, when they received more claims for redemption than they had cash available. This meant default and bankruptcy, save some sort of outside help.

Murray N. Rothbard demonstrated thirty years ago in his masterful essay Origins of the Federal Reservethat bankers and big business in the late 1800s began to call for a central bank as a “lender of last resort,” an institution that had the power to perform “bail outs” through printing money. After a massive propaganda campaign, they finally got their way in 1913.

Rather than risk default through fractional reserve banking, the Fed guarantees the banks have nothing to worry about. Today the reserve requirement is only 10%, meaning for every dollar deposited, the bank can lend out (i.e., “create”) an additional 90 cents.

“New” money enters circulation in competition with “old” money, bidding up prices for the first goods bought with it. But prices exist in relation to one another, so even though some prices will rise first, eventually all will rise as the market restores its desired proportions. For this reason, the total size of the money supply is irrelevant: only a change in this quantity matters because it causes a redistribution of wealth to the first receivers of the new money (government, bankers, big business, etc.) from the public at large.

Before the Fed, banks got away with this wholesale rip-off only insofar as the public placed confidence in their solvency. The last century has been distinct with the banks filling their own pockets practically without end. Since 1913, the dollar has lost over 95 percent of its exchange value.

The only limitation now is the stability of the currency itself and, as Jack said, the crash of 2008 was followed by an “unprecedented program of printing trillions of dollars to stimulate the economy.” If it weren’t for legal tender laws — requiring official debts, as well as taxes, to be paid in national currencies — and for inflationary central banks around the world, the US dollar would have already collapsed because investors would have switched to sounder money. So much for the Fed as “guardian of the U.S. dollar.”

Until holders of US dollars understand that they are being robbed by the very people who claim to be protecting their money, more of the same will follow. And until then, the intellectual army of economists employed by the Fed and the big banks will be eager to keep the lies going and the people in the dark.

Contrary to the popular notion that the Federal Reserve has the public welfare in mind, the sober observer would have to conclude that the Fed is all about special privileges for the few at the expense of the many. The last thing to be seen is who can blow out more birthday candles in one breath: former Fed chairman Ben Bernanke or the newly-appointed Janet Yellen.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

Not until we are free of this present government will America ever see sound money, and a growing economy; not to mention a free society. The entire con game relies on keeping the people ignorant, dependent, and afraid of change. Perhaps the people should understand that it is possible and justifiable to have all mortgages and liens canceled when a new government is established.

The Money / Financialization Matrix

“Allow me to issue and control a nation’s currency, and I care not who makes the laws.” ~Mayer Amschel Rothschild, circa 1791

“Private fortunes, in the present state of our circulation, are at the mercy of those self-created money lenders, and are prostrated by the floods of nominal money with which their avarice deluges us.” ~Thomas Jefferson to John W. Eppes, 1813

“I sincerely believe … that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies, and that the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity under the name of funding is but swindling futurity on a large scale.” ~Thomas Jefferson to John Taylor, 1816

“I, too, have been a close observer of the Bank of the United States. I have had men watching you for a long time, and am convinced that you have used the funds of the bank to speculate in the breadstuffs of this country. When you won, you divided the profits amongst you, and when you lost, you charged it to the bank. You tell me that if I take the deposits from the bank and annul its charter, I shall ruin ten thousand families. That may be true, gentlemen, but that is your sin! Should I let you go on, you will ruin fifth thousand families, and that would be my sin! You are a den of vipers and thieves. I have determined to rout you out, and by the Eternal I will rout you out!” ~Andrew Jackson to assembled Second Bank of the United States bankers, 1834

“The few who understand the system (interest-bearing money) will either be so interested in its profits, or so dependent on its favors that there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of people, mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantages that capital derives from the system, will bear its burdens without complaint, and perhaps without even suspecting the system is inimical to their interests.” ~Lord Nathaniel Rothschild to New York City associates, 1862

“[The Federal Reserve Act] establishes the most gigantic trust on earth…. When the President signs this bill the invisible government by the money power, proven to exist by the Money Trust investigation, will be legalized … “ ~Charles August Lindbergh Sr. before Congress, 1913

“Mr. Chairman, we have in this country one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve banks…. This evil institution has impoverished and ruined the people of the United States, has bankrupted itself, and has practically bankrupted our Government. Some people think the Federal Reserve banks are United States Government institutions. They are not Government institutions. They are private credit monopolies which prey upon the people of the United States for the benefit of themselves and their foreign customers; foreign and domestic speculators and swindlers; and rich and predatory money lenders.” ~Louis T. McFadden before Congress, 1932.

“The U.S. government has a technology, called a printing press (or its electronic equivalent), that allows it to produce as many dollars as it wishes at no cost.” ~Ben Bernanke, Nov. 21, 2002

“One myth that’s out there is that what we’re doing is printing money. We’re not printing money.” ~Ben Bernanke, Dec. 5, 2010

“As long as the Matrix exists, the human race will never be free.” ~Morpheus, The Matrix

For well over a hundred years, the combination of Constitutional republican democracy and market capitalism seemed to be a rising tide lifting all boats, including those of the poor. But during the second hundred years—despite advances in technology that would have made the Founding Fathers gasp—something went badly wrong.

Today, of course, the gulf between rich and poor is widening everywhere. This has already triggered unrest in the developing world. Unrest may spread to the U.S. when the next major economic downturn hits, if it dawns on average Americans that there has been no recovery outside Wall Street. Even elites are concerned, as should be clear from the book creating the largest stir this year: Capital in the 21st Century, by Thomas Piketty. It is rare for a thick (696 pages) economic treatise by a previously mostly unknown professor to shoot to the #1 spot on Amazon.com. Piketty’s quasi-Marxian analysis, as well as the support for it from within the establishment, are likely intended to ensure that as many intellectuals as possible continue ingesting the “blue pill.” As matters stand, this might not be hard, as the majority even of highly educated people with Ph.D.s have little or no grasp of how the Western world’s money and banking system works. As for the general public, how are they to understand why they are working more and achieving less—if they can find jobs at all? They know that a sizable portion of their country’s manufacturing base has gone overseas for cheap labor, and that the largest middle class in history is disappearing. One reason those with work are working harder is that their money has lost its purchasing power.

Money circumscribes most of our lives. Obtaining it and then obtaining more has become an end in itself for most people in advanced civilizations. Clearly, one of most important keys to “taking the red pill” is understanding the money and banking system. This isn’t especially easy, given that with its charts, graphs, and language unintelligible to nonspecialists, most economics seems calculated to keep most of us in the dark.

The European bankers—as was noted in one of the original segments—had honed the art of fractional lending to where they could control governments and foment wars. “If my sons did not want wars,” stated Gutle Schnapper Rothschild, Mayer Amschel’s widow, late in her life, “there would be none.” Indeed, without the process we are about to describe, there is no doubt this world would be a far more peaceful place.

Fractional reserve banking was the dominant practice in the industry even prior to the creation of the Federal Reserve System in the U.S. in 1913. Here is how it works. The federal government (e.g., politicians) decides it needs money. Its minions in the Treasury Department contact the Federal Reserve. They request—let’s say—$20 billion. The Fed agrees to buy $20 billion in government bonds. The government prints treasury bonds totaling $20 billion. The Fed prepares its own pieces of paper, called Federal Reserve Notes. You probably have some in your wallet or on your dresser as you read this. It prepares $20 billion worth of these. They trade. The federal government deposits $20 billion into a bank account. It can then spend the money on various federal programs.

We speak metaphorically here. In recent decades this has been electronic. No paper is used at all. But the federal government and Federal Reserve have just increased the money supply by $20 billion.

The $20 billion is treated like any deposit. The bank must maintain a required reserve, equal (in most places) to 10% of what “exists” in banking cyberspace. In other words, of the $20 billion deposited, $2 billion is retained as the required reserve. That fact that the bank only keeps 10% of what is recorded on its books assumes that depositors won’t want to withdraw all their money at once, of course. The bank won’t have it, and will technically fail. The other $18 billion may not exist physically, but it can be loaned out. Does the bank loan out $18 billion from what was deposited? Actually it does not. A banker enters data into his computer, creates $18 billion on top of the $20 billion originally deposited, and loans that out! Borrowers deposit it as credit in their bank accounts. The money supply expands again—by $38 billion!

This occurred because there was a demand for loans—from borrowers none of whom understand this system—and credit available to loan out. What we didn’t note above is that government bonds are instruments of debt. When the government purchases these bonds, it is taking out a loan. Loans are to be paid back. This is to say, money—created out of thin air—is created from debt. If paid back it would disappear from circulation. This is hard for most people to get their brains around. Perhaps they expect honesty from the system that creates and manages the medium of exchange in their society.

Continuing: of the newly created $18 billion, again $1.8 billion must be kept in reserve, while $16.2 is available to loan out. Again, the $16.2 billion is not taken from the $18 billion in depositors’ accounts but created again by data entry: so that at the end of the next transaction cycle the money generated from that original $20 billion is now $54.2 billion. Of the newly created $16.2 billion, again the bank must keep ten percent on reserve ($1.62 billion) but can loan out an amount equal to the rest ($14.58 billion). Again the money loaned out comes not from the $16.2 billion but is created via data entry. We began with a deposit of $20 billion. We now have $68.78 billion!

This process can repeat indefinitely. The amount of created money will soon reach, and surpass, $200 billion! The basic principle—which can be had from the Federal Reserve’s own publications (e.g., Modern Money Mechanics, issued by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago)—is that for any deposit, nine times that deposit can be created by the bank out of thin air and loaned to new borrowers.

It is important to note that new value isn’t created. The amount of goods and services exchanged in the economy hasn’t changed. If these increase, then increasing the money supply is reasonable. But in the circumstances we are considering here, all we know that has increased is the money supply. Fractional reserve banking doesn’t void the law of supply and demand, however: as supply increases while demand stays the same, the marginal value of individual units drops. In the case of paper currency, it buys less. The newly created money “robs” existing currency of a portion of its purchasing power. The visible consequence is that prices of goods and services in the real economy rise. The common term for this is inflation. What has been inflated is the money supply. It is fortunate that most of the newly created money remains in banks as part of what is known as the M3 aggregate—all physical currency in circulation, all money in banking accounts including savings accounts, and money owed. If we were talking about currency in circulation, prices of all basic consumer goods would go into the stratosphere!

The process of expanding the money supply independently of real economic growth is inherently inflationary. It cannot have any other result. This, of course, is why my grandfather could buy two hamburgers for 25 cents each and a Coke for a nickel. The dollar has lost over 97% of its purchasing power since the Federal Reserve was created.

Much of this loss has taken place since 1971, the year President Richard Nixon “closed the gold window,” i.e., severed the ties between the dollar and gold that had been in place since the Bretton Woods system established the dollar as the world’s reserve currency. Federal spending had exploded in the 1960s; the public was showing irritability over taxes; the money had to come from somewhere.

Since 1971, the money creation spigot has run full blast. That was the beginning of the shift from an economy based on production to one based on financialization. Corporations were just beginning to offshore production for cheap labor, causing the much-vaunted shift in the U.S. economy from manufacturing to low-paying services which would become noticeable in the future. The national debt was around $400 billion when Nixon entered office. It crossed the $1 trillion threshold during the early Reagan years, true to his mainstream Republicanism, held down taxes but not spending. It was $6 trillion during the Clinton years. It grew to over $11 trillion under George W. Bush and has ballooned to over $17 trillion under Barack Obama. Does it make sense to say that in the “desert of the real” this is unsustainable? That this process cannot continue indefinitely?

We noted above that when the Federal Reserve creates Federal Reserve Notes and loans them out, the federal government acquires debt. We didn’t note that the debt begins to accrue interest. When a bank loans out money to an ordinary borrower, it obviously also charges interest. When the debt is paid, the bank doesn’t consider its loan paid in full unless the accrued interest is also paid (and interest compounds with time).

The following point is extremely important! If all money is created out of nothing, and interest is charged on it, then the total amount owed—the total principal (that which is borrowed) by all borrowers plus the total interest owed by all borrowers—will always exceed the money supply! Only the principal was created. There is not money to pay the interest. It does not exist! It was never created and loaned out!

So where does the money to pay interest come from? Some will do well enough to repay both loan and interest. Others will not. They will lose out, and remain perpetually in debt. This is not their fault, because the system is structured so that some lose. Those who lose return to the bank and “refinance their loan,” i.e., borrow more, which means: accruing more debt and more interest. As it is self-defeating to borrow money in order to pay interest on money previously borrowed, it should be clear: this process leads to debt slavery. This is essentially the position of the entire U.S. federal government. It is mathematically bankrupt. It can charge its refinancing to taxpayers, however. Outside the “real matrix,” U.S. taxpayers are de-facto debt slaves.

In sum: first, this system enriches a banking class—a super elite consisting of bankers and those at the top of the corporations that grow up around them. They grow rich through money manipulation, not production. Second, it guarantees losers. The latter become semi-permanent debt slaves. This system cannot do otherwise! Third, it has been important to hide this predation from the public, in order to avoid a massive taxpayers’ and borrowers’ revolt.

Internationally, this kind of system is applied to nations, with the IMF or the World Bank assuming the role of predatory lender. It has the same results, on a larger scale. Hence the kinds of entanglements we saw in the last segment, with Economic Hit Men luring unsuspecting developing nations into debt slavery via huge loans from the IMF or the World Bank. Debt slavery means control over governments, and probable assassination for those who resist corruption. As we saw, loans are refinanced in exchange for natural resources. This means poverty for the masses. Following a huge World Bank loan to Ecuador in the late 1960s, poverty there increased from 50% to 70%, and unemployment (or underemployment) grew from 15% to 70% as global corporations destroyed local economies. Ecuador’s public debt went from $240 million to a catastrophic $16 billion. The share of monies allocated for the poor (health care, etc.) went from 20% to just 6%. Corporations receiving most of the fruits of the loans reaped windfalls, and most of these exited the country: a major reason we’ve seen so much anti-American sentiment in the developing world.

How this system worsens whatever gulf already exists between rich and poor should be clear by this point. It constitutes an especially insidious brand of corporate welfare which redistributes wealth upward to banks and other corporations that stay close to them so as to ensure winner status, dependent in the sense Lord Rothschild spoke of. Fractional reserve banking expands the money supply (inflation), causing currency to lose its value so that prices must rise (rising prices are usually confused with inflation). Wages, however, generally do not rise. Thus those formerly doing well suddenly find themselves struggling to maintain the same standard of living. With off shoring, there is increased competition for the few remaining good jobs, keeping wages down.

Contributing to our “real matrix” economy is that the federal government underreports inflation, just as it underreports unemployment. In the case of the former, it issues a number which omits food and fuel costs and calls it the “core” inflation rate. Real inflation is several times higher. “Real matrix” unemployment is 6.3%. Actual unemployment in the “desert of the real” (which is not limited to those not working who have applied for work in the past four weeks) is almost 24% (for supporting evidence for this figure go here). Were the general public to turn off TV news, tune out sports and celebrities, and awaken to this number, there would doubtless again be massive unrest in the streets of American cities.

Helping to stave off unrest has been the fact that it has been possible to continue getting credit into the hands of people who do not understand this system. Otherwise their standard of living would have fallen precipitously long ago. They are able to continue using credit cards to spend money they do not have. As they respond to incentives, e.g., artificially low interest rates, they accrue personal debt and add to the general debt spiral. They reap short-term rewards: a new house, a new automobile, expensive new clothes, etc. Economists of the Paul Krugman ilk say this helps the economy, reminding us that 70% of economic activity is based on consumer spending. A mass consumption culture based on credit-fueled spending soon devolves into a house-of-cards state of affairs. A good term for this is pseudo-prosperity, the feeling one has when surrounded by commodities purchased on credit. They feel prosperous until they take a realistic look at their monthly credit card bills and start to wonder how they are going to pay off that monstrosity!

During the past decade, some unfortunate misled souls learned the hard way that they weren’t rich just because they received a huge loan to buy a McMansion. Another feature of a credit-based system is its giving rise to asset bubbles, as perverse incentives lead to mass purchases of goods that otherwise would not be seen as so desirable. Artificial demand drives their prices higher than they would be in a genuine free market. Those suckered learn they are not prosperous when the bubble pops, the value of their house plummets, and they find their mortgages “underwater” (the payment owed exceeds the market value of the house); or when they cannot repay the loan at all for whatever reason and are foreclosed upon.

Unfortunately, nothing has changed since the Meltdown of 2008, a direct result of these kinds of policies. These are not the days of Andrew Jackson, obviously. None of today’s “vipers and thieves” were called out for their shenanigans. Instead, too-big-to-fail entered our vocabulary and we saw the most massive money creation project yet: Ben Bernanke’s quantitative easing. Most of the newly created money went to Wall Street, of course, which now records new highs almost weekly, while Main Street suffers, the mainstream press puts out bogus statistics, and professional “success coaches” lecture former members of the middle class on how to “reinvent themselves” (often for very steep prices!). The Western obsession with money, wealth, and things continues unabated.

You are not wealthy because you have things. You are not wealthy because you live in a McMansion if you owe hundreds of thousands of dollars and your credit cards are maxed out. You are wealthy if you have assets paid in full and are living within your means, debt-free. Few Americans, as far as I can tell, are living within their means, and few are debt-free. They are living in pseudo-prosperity in the “real matrix”; in the “desert of the real,” they are swimming in red ink!

As I have noted several times, very few people grasp how this system works. Most pundits dismiss this as a “conspiracy theory.” They are either ignorant or lying. There is a super elite, and we can identify its members by how they move back and forth from public office or cabinet positions to positions in banking leviathans or other corporations, the Federal Reserve or the World Bank, or if they are able to move money internationally without a hitch (we ordinary mortals aren’t able to do that!). I will leave it to readers to name names. Those at the top don’t necessarily “conspire” to drive this system if they have essentially the same values, which place power and profit ahead of everything else, including basic honesty and peoples’ right to be left alone. Their system is self-perpetuating. Those in the lower echelons of the banking industry, meanwhile, doubtless aren’t aware of the consequences of what they are doing.

Many will want to know: is there any peaceful way of ending this system? During the past eight years, on two occasions, Dr. Ron Paul sought the Republican nomination for the presidency on a platform including a call for a full audit of the Federal Reserve—hoping that what it would reveal would lead to a nationwide demand to shut down the Federal Reserve once and for all. We know how that turned out. Dr. Paul’s efforts were resisted by mainstream Republicans. He was dismissed by mainstream media as “unelectable,” and rarely afforded the opportunity to explain his views uninterrupted. His supporters were sometimes forcibly ejected from Republican events. Today you still find benighted souls, fully plugged into the “real matrix,” who believe the solution to U.S. economic problems is to elect more Republicans! In other words, more Nixons, Reagans, Bushes, or perhaps a John McCain or a Mitt Romney.

The problems are not limited to the U.S., obviously. It is unlikely that Western peoples in the northern hemisphere (the English-speaking world plus Europe) will ever again live in healthy economic conditions as long as this system remains in place, i.e., as long as the “real matrix” continues to exist. What is the solution? Barring the miraculous, there is only one conceivable solution, and that is education as a precursor to action. Sadly, this is a long shot at best. As every reader of this website knows, as well as those who read my book—education, especially higher education, went off the rails decades ago.

The Pentagons Propaganda Machine

06/21/2014

Joachim Hagopian

A short time after the worst US war defeat in the nation’s history – the Vietnam War – a growing wave of films began emerging in attempts to grapple with America’s open war wounds. Some focused on allegorical cautionary tales such as “Apocalypse Now,” an epic masterpiece showing the war in Southeast Asia as a nightmare of misguided confusion and terror, and ultimately its senseless brutality. The caricatures depicted left an indelible imprint on viewers with Robert Duvall’s perverse character proclaiming that napalm in the morning “smells like victory.” Or the decorated war hero-West Pointer renegade colonel played by Marlon Brando who saw the evil Empire war for what it was worth and jumped ship to the other side to become a hero worshipped, warrior God to the indigenous deep jungle inhabitants. Francis Ford Coppola’s 1979 tour-de-force of an anti-war film became both a box office smash as well as Oscar nominated Best Picture with Coppola himself nominated as Best Director.

Just the year before in 1978 an Oscar winner for its stars was “Coming Home,” exploring the devastating impact of war on relationships. War’s collateral damage manifesting at home in the form of marital infidelity centered on stateside wife (Jane Fonda’s character), her wayward, war-fighting, PTSD-stricken husband (Bruce Dern) amidst the burgeoning intimacy of another war victim-paraplegic played by Jon Voight. The powerful reality drama in its raw emotional delivery depicted how different individuals participating in that debacle of a war each responded to their own pain, trauma and suffering. The film poignantly transcended its challenge as a potential soap opera-ish tearjerker to bring us as an audience closer home than we might comfortably want in understanding the war’s very real catastrophic consequences on vulnerable and frail human beings.

Also the year before “Apocalypse Now” came another Oscar winning portrait of the before, and aftereffects of Americans living through the Vietnam War in Michael Cimino’s 1978 “Deer Hunter.” Capturing the pro-war sentiment of a small steel mining town in Pennsylvania with a huge wedding celebration as a joyful tribute to three young men about to join the war effort, the second half of the film focuses on the costly toll that combat takes on the fragile human psyche and the deep sense of loyalty amongst war buddies. The mountainous treks in search of conquering the hunted act as a metaphorical backdrop to the complex nuance of male bonding juxtaposed by man’s inhumanity toward both all that is beautiful and natural as well as the brutality of man’s inhumanity to man. This film also offers deep human insight as another allegorically dark, cautionary tale of the heavy lessons of war.

Perhaps the most accurate Oscar winning depiction of what it must have been like as an American soldier trying to stay alive in the jungles of Southeast Asia was Vietnam veteran Oliver Stone’s 1986 Oscar winner “Platoon.” The graphic horror of war in all its senselessness including a glimpse into atrocities committed by the US military is brilliantly shown bringing out both war’s best and worst in human nature.

Oliver Stone once again won another Best Director Oscar for delving masterfully into the damaging effects of war in his 1989 “Born on the Fourth of July” based on the true life account written by war veteran and peace activist Ron Kovic. This story depicts so vividly with such powerfully raw emotion PTSD on both combat veterans and the rippling effects on their families. Again depicted is the patriotic small town fervor that never fails to accompany young men believing strongly in America’s righteous cause.

Whether succumbing to the old domino theory of stopping the Red Scare spread of nemesis Russia and China or the global terrorism of US-made al Qaeda, the US government has forever used in its propagandist arsenal movies from Hollywood. Prior to and even up to the Vietnam War with 1968’s “The Green Beret,” such mythic war hero acting legends as John Wayne have bedazzled and enticed many a young men into joining up and later dying for America’s chronic war cause.

Ron Kovic, like Pat Tillman and Bowe Bergdahl from the Afghan War, all fell victim to this same longtime jingoistic propaganda, faced the ugly truth about Empire wars, felt betrayed and suffered a crisis in conscience that compelled them to rebel against war. Whistleblowers Chelsea Manning and Edward Snowden in their own ways bravely did too.

Still another powerful projection of the Vietnam War’s insanity was demonstrated in Stanley Kubrick’s 1987 anti-war homage “Full Metal Jacket.” set during the Tet Offensive. Though there have been a number of other cinematic efforts to historically portray the Vietnam War for what it was, several deserving honorable mention include “The Boys in Company C” (1977), “Go Tell the Spartans” (1979), “Casualties of War” (1989) and “We Were Soldiers” (2002). But the aforementioned half dozen highly acclaimed motion pictures realistically best represent and truthfully present the Vietnam War in all its complexity, horror and tragedy, at least from the American point of view. More films could be done focusing on the one to three million Asian lives lost at the hands of America’s imperialistic war and the millions more who survived America’s crimes against their humanity. Though there are some Vietnamese films about the war, few have been seen by Americans.

In stark contrast to that war period, no post-9/11 film has even come close to telling the truth about either the Iraq or Afghanistan War. Probably the most accurate rendition was 2009’s Oscar winning “The Hurt Locker.” It follows the life of an American GI whose specialty is dismantling bombs. Its gritty portrayal of the Iraq War through one soldier’s experience comes across as extremely realistic in its cinema verite style. But it stays clear of revealing the war and occupation’s political debauchery, immorality and corruption, and barrenly empty in presenting the tragic human side and cost of war. The main character seems almost inhuman, mechanically going through his day-to-day high wire act with abandoned precision. Devoid of any anti-war element, whatever transmitted war message is neutered by its detached, matter-of-fact presentation, choosing to neither take a stand for or against the war. However, after the combat veteran returns home, the mundane emptiness of his everyday family life becomes no match for the adrenalin rush of wartime deployment as the protagonist succumbs to his irresistibly alluring addiction and most salient PTSD symptom. It portrays motivation for multiple tours, exactly what today’s Empire both wants and needs from its soldiers.

Mark Wahlberg stars in the recent “Lone Survivor” based on the true story written by Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell of his harrowing combat experience in Afghanistan. Though it demonstrates the fraternal bonding love that soldiers in war experience together along with their remarkable courage, the film may as well be a recruitment add for Navy SEALs. Through one man’s story of survival, this film is designed to reflect the heroic passion and dedication America’s elite military possess in fighting American Empire wars. If anything, like mostly all war films nowadays, it glorifies the mission of America as the “exceptional” fighting force so that we at home can enjoy our ”freedom,” the same old cliche that has now become just another lie.

Capturing the immoral depravity and brutality of America’s longest wars in history has yet to even be attempted by Hollywood, despite the near decade and a half since their beginning. And this gaping hole in cinema history is all too evident in how the wars have been covered with so called embedded news journalism. Unlike the Vietnam War where cameras followed soldiers onto the battlefield and observed in black and white actual red blood flowing from real life dying Americans, twenty-first century wars are censored and hermetically sealed from exposing any real truth about the horrors of war. The in-our-face realism broadcast nightly into living rooms across America decades ago more than any other single factor caused the nation to virtually overnight turn 180 degrees against the Vietnam War. From America’s most popular song of the entire year in 1966 was Staff Sergeant Barry Sadler singing “Ballad of the Green Beret.” But just two short years later America went from overwhelmingly favoring the war to the war President Lyndon B. Johnson’s Oval Office abdication from even running again because the nation had so vehemently turned against that unpopular war. That is what real war shown on living room television screens can do.

Of course this never happened during these two even longer running wars in the Middle East. Despite the boldface lies perpetrated by the neocon Bush-Cheney regime behind the invasions and occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan, and the overt evidence that their diabolical plan was in place to wage war against Iraq long before their 9/11 false flag, the anti-war movement never quite got off the ground. By the war criminals’ grand design, the sanitized, artificially delivered coverage of these latest American wars neither showed any of the near million and a half humans dying in Iraq alone nor any GI body bags loaded up and coming home. Such is how this sterilized version of modern imperialistic wars are fought by America’s standing army of volunteers – out of sight, out of mind to the oblivious 99% of the US population not actually fighting and dying on foreign oil-rich battlefields half a world away. The widening disconnect between US military and the US civilian population is also by sinister design.

Instead of the remarkable, disturbingly realistic films chronicling the Vietnam War, all we get now from this latest batch of US wars are either recruitment stories or the sterile “Hurt Locker’s” numbing rendition of war insanity by the same Oscar winning filmmaker who three years later was behind the “true story” account of how Uncle Sam finally got his boogey man – “Zero Dark Thirty.” A full ten years after 9/11, only through such heroic, never-give-up persistence, an ace crack team of CIA-black ops superheroes finally were able to track down and nail their phantom ringleader in Osama bin Laden, who had been conveniently playing the same “lone gunman” role for 9/11 as Oswald-Sirhan-James Earl did for the Kennedy-MLK false flag operations. That this too was a fictional tale made for good rah-rah, God-bless-America just like “Flight 93’s “let’s roll” did prior to crashing into that mysterious Pennsylvania field where no wreckage or bodies were ever found.

Despite the saccharinely contrived twisting of history so American Empire residents can feel better about themselves and their nation’s inhumane wars, Hollywood no longer has neither the interest nor permission nor courage to portray war as it historically is, not when it has been hijacked by the likes of the Pentagon and the CIA. No more can the film industry honestly and accurately depict war or America as they really are, not when the plague that long ago muzzled and killed independent journalism in this country also descended upon to muzzle and kill Hollywood. Like the presstitute corps, Hollywood is just another false mouthpiece for manufacturing deceit that covers up government criminality. We will not be seeing any more anti-war films, not in this apocalyptic pro-war era of America’s tyranny, oppression and Empire decline.

The United States is owned and controlled by oligarchs who own and control the top transnational corporations who own and control virtually all the national governments. They send their CIA-Pentagon goons out to Hollywood to make sweetheart deals with the big studios ensuring that only action war hero propaganda spews forth onto the big screens. The total absence of films reflecting any attempt at showing real truth about the sins of war and violence is just another form of censorship among many that rules our lives today. After all, war is here to stay and fresh bodies of young patriotically misguided men and women are sorely needed on the many battlefronts to come. And anything remotely exposing the true horror and ugliness of war and violence is simply not conducive to the perpetual war making machine. So keep all those fake video games and fake movies going with all those fake superheroes spilling fake blood while killing all those evil-minded fake Moslem jihadists. That way real people will continue shedding real blood all over the world just like the oligarchy wants and demands.

Whatever you do Hollywood, don’t show war and violence for the unnatural ugliness of what they really are. Or how our tax dollars draining Americans have long been financing, arming and hiring al Qaeda mercenaries, the same ones that supposedly killed 3000 of us on 9/11 to fight all its proxy wars against Russia-China-Iran-Syria in places like Syria and Libya along with the Balkans in the 1990’s and Afghanistan in the 1980’s. Though our country keeps losing war after war after war, again it is all by grand oligarchic, New World Order design to destroy America. Everyone loses but that less than 1% that obscenely profits from war with its most obvious agenda to destabilize, impoverish and control every nation on earth.

Remarking on how effective propaganda is in the US, former 1980’s CIA Director William Casey once uttered: “We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the  American public believes is false.”

As the war drums beat louder all the time, to illustrate the utter cold blooded contempt that oligarch puppets like war criminal Henry Kissinger harbors toward Americans and our soldiers in particular, he brazenly stated: “Military men are just dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy.”

And even more brazenly arrogant when reflecting how effective his NWO plan is being executed with so little resistance, Kissinger boasts, “Illegal we do immediately… unconstitutional takes a little longer.”

It appears they already have accomplished their coup. The US Constitution is all but dead and buried, no longer upheld by all those traitors in government sworn to protect it.

Using mind control methods for decades to mesmerize, desensitize, brainwash and blind young Americans to the savagery of war and violence by glorifying it through Hollywood propaganda films, the US government has been effectively manipulating multiple generations to do its dirty bloody bidding as sacrificial lambs at the geopolitical Masonic altar where no one wins but the bloodthirsty 1% war profiteering vampires who have been getting away with bloody murder for centuries.

What Keynes Has Done To Us

06/20/2014

http://www.thedailybell.com/editorials/35407/Nelson-Hultberg-What-Keynes-Has-Done-To-Us/

Editorial By Nelson Hultberg

The essential economic problem we confront today is that our dominant Keynesian intellectuals have abandoned reality. They do not grasp what they have wrought with the mountainous loads of debt and malinvestment that are overwhelming us. Much of this burden must be liquidated before genuine demand and growth can be restored, which will require radical reform if we are to evoke a genuine cure.

To try and solve today’s debt created crisis with more debt (as the Keynesians are presently doing) can only bring on a bigger bust the next time around, which will require still larger “debt injections” to stave off a still larger crisis. Eventually, the economic implosion will be so monstrous that it can no longer be rectified with “corrective debt injections.” Consumers and businesses will have reached their limit. The Keynesian system will have met its Waterloo. Perhaps this denouement has already arrived.

This dilemma began because we altered the creation of money in a profoundly dangerous way with the inception of the Federal Reserve in 1913. Government expansion of the money supply today does not have to be redeemed in gold as the banks’ fractional reserve loans were in the 19th century. What the Fed does now is pyramid excessive levels of credit upon totally irredeemable currency. It can print as much money as it wishes, and banks can loan out nine dollars in credit for every printed dollar. The Fed has been creating, over the past 100 years, far more excessive debt than the worst banking systems of the 19th century. This must end in an eventual collapse.

Keynesian rationale, however, maintains that the “total catastrophe” scenario can be averted by use of this credit pyramiding process. The Fed can continue injecting fiat money into the economy indefinitely and thus bring about an expansion of purchasing power for consumers and businesses. Why? Because somebody is always willing to sell bonds to the Fed, and that’s all it takes. The Fed prints billions in new money to make the purchases. Liquidity is thus injected into the system, which will eventually recharge all producers and consumers to begin anew the boom cycle. Keynesianism has solved the “total catastrophe” dilemma.

But what Keynesians conveniently ignore is that the fiat money from those bond sales does not become credit until a banker offers it for a loan, and a borrower desires to borrow it. If consumers and businesses become overloaded with debt, and if bankers become worried about prospective borrowers’ credit worthiness, then much of that fiat money remains just fiat money. It sits in the banks and does not find its way into the 9-1 fractional reserve lending process whereby $9 in credit is generated for every $1 of fiat money printed by the Fed for its periodic “liquidity / debt injections.” In other words, the newly printed money does not so easily expand into mega-purchasing power via Fed credit pyramiding, which is what is needed to bring recovery from a recession.

Therefore, the Fed becomes basically ineffective in its efforts to restore real growth after a deflationary credit contraction that results from consumer and business debt saturation. This is because the Fed’s only effective policy tool is the offering of more debt, which is the very poison that is destroying the system. Sure, the Fed can stop the deflation with massive “debt injections,” but at what cost? The cost will be either runaway price inflation because of the size and repetition of the debt injections needed, or a pseudo-growth economy where relentless stagflation prevails and the stock market registers nominal gains rather than real gains.

The Wildest Credit Binge In History

Our economy today is so top-heavy with credit and debt that it is unlike all other economies in the past. Keynesians somehow believe that consumers and businesses will continue to borrow still more in face of this. Reason tells us they will not. There has to come a saturation point, and it appears we have reached it with the credit crisis and Dow collapse of September 2008. We have experienced, over the past 43 years, the wildest credit binge in our history. This time the inevitable hangover will be more than a regular hangover.

Because the Fed must fight the economic crisis with massive monetary inflation, the dollar must depreciate disastrously in the upcoming decades. Eventually, holders of U.S. dollars, stocks and Treasury bonds will sell their dollar related investments, which will bring severe deterioration to our economy and to the standard of living that Americans enjoy as either heavy price inflation or prolonged stagflation invade our lives.

In response to all this, our government leaders will continue to put forth an array of market manipulations, financial gimmickry and bailouts for Wall Street such as what we saw with Hank Paulson’s Troubled Assets Relief Program (TARP) in 2008. Our leaders will grasp at straws. They will jawbone and delude themselves. They will stonewall and try to dump the more insurmountable problems into the next administration’s lap. And, of course, they will continue to relentlessly inject massive debt into the system in hopes of not having to descend into the nastiness of a full-blown depression.

What has worked for the Keynesians for 78 years is now in its death throes. The policies of interest rate rigging and debt injections mixed with confiscatory taxes, which they have used since 1936 to manage their booms and busts, could conceivably have one more stimulatory credit bubble left, but it’s doubtful.

Will Credit Reflation Work?

Hopefully the reader is now beginning to grasp that our present economic problems are far more serious than just another “recessionary cycle” in need of reflation. Because many of the debt injections being utilized by the Fed are being monetized (i.e., paid for by printing new money) this must bring price inflation down the road. But Fed and Treasury bureaucrats figure they can get away with such monetization. In fact, they think they can monetize any number of assets (U.S. bonds, mortgage securities, commercial paper, corporate bonds, etc.) and thus stem any deflationary spiral without incurring price inflation in the aftermath. Their reasoning is that afterwards they can then mop up all their injections of liquidity. They can sell the bonds and other assets later, which will withdraw liquidity from the economy. In this way, they can avoid serious price inflation problems in the future.

But three flaws in the Keynesians’ reasoning exist. First, the government is buying and / or guaranteeing all kinds of loans and debt paper that no one in the marketplace wants. They are, in essence, buying trillions of dollars of “crappy paper” as the street defines it. But who will buy this crappy paper from the Fed and Treasury when they decide to re-sell it, which they will have to do if they intend to withdraw liquidity from the system later on? The re-sell argument sounds good coming from Keynesian spinners, but it will play out very badly when the time comes to implement it. Crappy paper that has no buyers in 2009 will have the same dearth of buyers in 2015. Time cannot turn dross into gold.

Second, the Keynesian spinners are ignorant of the fact that each succeeding decade in the evolution of a fiat paper money economy requires larger amounts of debt to be floated in order to maintain the same amount of economic growth. (See Keynesianism’s Ugly Secret) This means that more and more massive amounts of liquidity will have to be injected in the effort to stave off depression and then withdrawn from the system in order to bring about a cessation of the inflationary pressures building up. These amounts will be far larger than the spinners are anticipating. It sounds plausible to say that all excess monetizations will be withdrawn later on. But it will be very difficult to mop up such massive amounts of liquidity in a smooth and practical manner. And what’s more, it will be very difficult to pull the trigger on such withdrawals.

Will the Fed and Congress have the courage to withdraw liquidity from Wall Street in the midst of the most severe economic crisis since the 1930s? Are we to believe that Yellen and the FOMC are going to raise interest rates to American consumers and businesses who are already ignoring record low rates? Very doubtful. Moreover who will determine what constitutes “excess liquidity”? Junkies are the world’s worst judges of whether or not they are engaging in excess, and this is who we have running Washington and Wall Street today – “liquidity junkies.”

When all is said and done, such a massive injecting and then mopping up of liquidity will bring about a terribly volatile economy in which business calculation is unreliable, capital expenditures measly, real growth nil and countless decisions “politicized” by a growing herd of corporate-banking bureaucrats assuming the role of new economic Czars for the 21st century.

Third, there is the problem of “money velocity.” As the massive amounts of liquidity for the bailouts begin to diffuse out into the economy and cause price escalation, consumers will begin to get nervous about the credibility of the dollar. They will perceive the currency debasement taking place and will act accordingly. In other words, they will spend their money faster (thus speeding up the velocity of money), which will create a chaotic inflationary price spiral rather than the productively growing economy anticipated by Keynesians.

The Sinister Inflation Game

This level of ignorance is embarrassing. Keynesians do not understand the sinister nature of the inflation game they are so desirous of playing. They think they can manage its explosive dangers with their sophisticated debt instruments, econometric models, and logarithmic forecasting programs. They overlook the mysterious vagaries of human nature. They are blind to the unpredictable reactions of human beings because they think only in terms of X’s and O’s on a graph. But society’s real economy is comprised of real “human beings” and real “human actions.” It is these human beings and their actions that always confound Keynesian central planners.

Here then is the major source of our problem: Keynesian statists in Washington can’t grasp that a human economy, like an ecology in nature, runs on natural laws (supply and demand, profit and loss, diminishing returns, Say’s Law, etc.). Its hundreds of billions of convoluted emotions, preferences, actions and reactions are self-correcting through these natural laws whenever excesses and miscalculations take place. When bureaucrats intervene into this complex ecology, they cause severe distortions, inflations, malinvestments, shortages, etc., which then require more government interventions, which then create more distortions until the entire ecology becomes stultified and collapses.

Unfortunately, Keynesian bureaucrats have been creating ever-increasing distortions in our economy for many decades, which has now brought us to stultification and collapse. How all this will play out over the long run cannot be known precisely. But a monstrous “government induced” crisis is now upon us, and the wisdom of history says it will not unfold benignly. The structure is too corrupted within. Our policies and perspectives are too warped, our excesses too huge. Too much damage has been done to monetary integrity and ethical propriety. Too many political humbugs and parasites, too many barnacles have accumulated on the ship’s hull of our life’s energy. The Rubicon was crossed in 1971. When Richard Nixon closed the gold window to the world, he opened the lid to Pandora’s Box. He tore down the last prevailing bulwark of economic sanity.

Deadly Diseases Crossing Border With Illegal Immigrants

 Marti Oakley Child endangermentImmigration Chagas (“kissing bug”) disease,child endangerment from illegal minorsDrug-resistant tuberculosisElizabeth Lee Vliet M.D.illegal immigrationlife-threatening diseasesparasitespublic health crisispublic health departments

 By Elizabeth Lee Vliet, M.D.

“A public health crisis, the likes of which I have not seen in my lifetime, is looming. Hardest hit by exposures to these difficult-to-treat diseases will be elderly, children, immunosuppressed cancer-patients, patients with chronic lung disease or congestive heart failure.“

A flood of illegals has massively surged at our southwestern borders. The economic impact of medical care, education, and incarceration for illegals forced on taxpayers is bankrupting Arizona.

Why are such swarms entering the U.S. illegally NOW, particularly children? Newspapers in Mexico and Central and South America are actually describing U.S. “open borders,” encouraging people to come with promises of food stamps or “amnesty.” It is textbook Cloward-Piven strategy to overwhelm and collapse the economic and social systems, in order to replace them with a “new socialist order” under federal control.

Carried by this tsunami of illegals are the invisible “travelers” our politicians don’t like to mention: diseases the U.S. had controlled or virtually eradicated: tuberculosis (TB), Chagas disease, dengue fever, hepatitis, malaria, measles, plus more. I have been working on medical projects in Central and South America since 2009, so I am aware of problems these countries face from such diseases.

A public health crisis, the likes of which I have not seen in my lifetime, is looming. Hardest hit by exposures to these difficult-to-treat diseases will be elderly, children, immunosuppressed cancer-patients, patients with chronic lung disease or congestive heart failure. Drug-resistant tuberculosis is the most serious risk, but even diseases like measles can cause severe complications and death in older or immunocompromised patients.

TB is highly contagious—you catch it anywhere around infected people: schools, malls, buses, etc. The drug-resistant TB now coming across our borders requires a complex, extremely expensive treatment regimen that has serious side effects and a low cure rate.

Chagas (“kissing bug”) disease, caused by the parasiteTrypanosoma cruzi is carried by the triatomine bug that transmits disease to humans. Although “kissing bugs” are already here, they are not as widespread as in Latin America. Right now, Chagas disease is uncommon in the U.S., so many doctors do not think to check for it.

Chagas causes debilitating fatigue, headaches, body aches, nausea/vomiting, liver and spleen enlargement, swollen glands, loss of appetite. When Chagas reaches the chronic phase, medications will not cure it. It can kill by arrhythmias, congestive heart failure, or sudden cardiac arrest.

Vaccine-preventable diseases like chicken pox, measles, and whooping cough spread like wildfire among unvaccinated children. Other illnesses, along with scabies and head lice, also thrive as children are transported by bus and herded into crowded shelters—courtesy of the federal government. Treatment costs are borne by taxpayers.

Our public health departments complain of being overtaxed by a dozen cases of measles or whooping cough. How will they cope withthousands of patients with many different, and uncommon, diseases? Americans, especially Medicaid patients, will see major delays for treatment.

Delays to see doctors at Phoenix VA hospital cost the lives of 58 Veterans while waiting for care. This is just a portent of far more deaths to come from delays for Americans’ medical care as thousands of sick illegals swamp already overcrowded emergency rooms. How will these facilities stay open at all under the financial burden of this huge unfunded federal mandate to provide “free” treatment?

People express concern about child endangerment from illegal minors dumped on Arizona streets in hundred-plus degree heat, with no support. A bigger concern is American endangerment from life-threatening diseases added to social and economic collapse from costs of treating hundreds of thousands of illegals.

There are many unanswered questions about this invasion of illegals with unaccompanied children used as weapons in a political agenda to destabilize our country:

  • Who is paying for so many impoverished people and young children to get to the U.S. border from Central and South America?
  • Why is our government preventing Border Patrol agents from speaking out?
  • Why is our government not enforcing our immigration laws as other countries do?
  • Why are federal officials transporting illegal immigrants detained in Texas more than 1,000 miles to Arizona?

Illegal immigration is not a victimless crime. All taxpayers—and allpatients—are its victims. Diseases don’t stop at borders. Diseases don’t discriminate based on political affiliation.

Today it is Arizona and Texas being flooded with illegals. Tomorrow it will be your state, your medical care, your health, your life—and your children. Demand that Congress stop this flagrant lawlessness at our borders.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

THANKS MARTY!

You have to give the corporate pukes credit, they are smart! They know exactly what it takes to make the people to keep their mouth shut and put their own children at risk, devastate the medical economy, and raise a bunch of ignorant government supporting new voters. Every red blooded man in America with children should be patrolling the borders with no intention of letting anyone pass them bye. Nothing would be impossible if the politicians were held responsible for this assault on our country. Make them feel like they are at risk every time they leave home and see what happens. Why don’t the people understand that America is under attack from within? The citizens are brain dead from a life time of propaganda, and the government is raping, killing, and stealing with impunity.

In The Age of Information. . .

IGNORANCE IS A CHOICE!

FACT:  The DHS is not a “business” and it makes no “profit”.

 

FACT:  The DHS is a government Congressional-created bureaucracy….who is using OTHER PEOPLE’S MONEY to do things to Americans that are breaking the law.

Blame…your Congress critters…and give them a “hot foot” until they start to squeal about what is going on in Washington, DC.

FACT:  For those who are “pro-Illegal aliens” and “against the Rule of Law”….one must understand why these children no longer have parents.  When they came into Mexico… from Central America… the Mexicans killed them.  These children are then SOLD.

OBSERVATION:  When the “pro-Illegals” accept these kids as “refugees”, then they are helping Mexico PROFIT from these horrible activities, because many of the children are sold into Pedophile dens and Prostitute rings.  THEREFORE, one can allege that the “pro-Illegals” are all accomplices to criminal activity…according to Rule of Law…..big time.

 

Get it now?

DHS to Pay For Illegal Immigrants to be Escorted Into U.S.

By Paul Joseph Watson

June 19, 2014 @ 11:13 am

The Department of Homeland Security is set to pay for illegal minors up to the age of 17 to be escorted into the United States, according to a new solicitation posted at FedBizOpps.

Entitled ‘Escort Services for Unaccompanied Alien Children’, the solicitation reads;

ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] is seeking the services of a responsible vendor that shares the philosophy of treating all UAC with dignity and respect, while adhering to standard operating procedures and policies that allow for an effective, efficient, and incident free transport. The Contractor shall provide unarmed escort staff, including management, supervision, manpower, training, certifications, licenses, drug testing, equipment, and supplies necessary to provide on-demand escort services for non-criminal/non-delinquent unaccompanied alien children ages infant to 17 years of age, seven (7) days a week, 365 days a year. Transport will be required for either category of UAC or individual juveniles, to include both male and female juveniles. There will be approximately 65,000 UAC in total: 25% local ground transport, 25% via ICE charter and 50% via commercial air.

The post does not explain how ICE arrived at the figure of 65,000 children, nor does it clear up why 50% of the illegal minors are arriving via commercial air. The DHS intends to award the chosen vendor(s) 5 year fix priced contracts.

A screenshot of the government solicitation.

The program to use taxpayer money to escort illegal minors into the United States dovetails with a recent Infowars exclusive concerning how South Texas Church groups are transporting countless illegals into the United States before letting them go “wherever they want to go.”

Non-profit groups and churches are chauffeuring illegal immigrants from a bus station in McAllen, Texas before giving them temporary shelter and later releasing them onto the streets.

Infowars reporters witnessed children and their mothers, primarily consisting of illegals from Guatemala, being picked up throughout the day by vans marked TFC (the Family Church), before being driven to nearby facilities.

An employee of the organization admitted to Infowars that once the illegals are taken into temporary care, where they enjoy hot showers, food and a place to sleep, they are subsequently released and allowed to go “wherever they want to go.”

It subsequently emerged that the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol was paying for bus tickets and vouchers in order to help the illegals be transported much deeper into the country.

“What happened today in particular is that the Border Patrol dropped off what they call detainees but obviously they’re not detained when they drop them off,”McAllen, Texas City Attorney Kevin Pagan said in an interview with Infowars. “Normally they have tickets or arraigned transportation to go somewhere in the interior [of the U.S.].”

“Today, apparently, for some logistics reasons, some of them hadn’t had transportation arraigned or their transportation is tomorrow, and we’re having to find places to shelter them for tonight, so we’ve accessed some resources that we have to shelter them here tonight.”

Infowars reporter Jakari Jackson also asked Pagan why the Border Patrol is bringing them to the Sacred Heart Catholic Church in McAllen.

“They’re not bringing them here, they’re bringing them to our bus terminals because that’s where the Border Patrol understands that they have transportation to go to the interior,” he stated. “So they’re dropping them off and it’s our understanding that they were dropped off with tickets or with vouchers for tickets, but it turns out that some of them tonight didn’t have their tickets or their vouchers for tickets, or like I said their buses are tomorrow, so they have no where to stay.”

“Our bus terminal – by ours I mean the City of McAllen – is not a 24/7 operation so we got to put them up somewhere else.”

In other words, the U.S. government is purposely harboring illegal aliens within the U.S. while passing the costs to American taxpayers.

These revelations arrive in the aftermath of reports that the Rio Grande Valley has experienced an “endless surge” of immigrants attempting to illegally cross the border.

Worldwide Financial Criminal Network Revealed Part1

06/18/2014

http://www.veteranstoday.com/2014/06/15/worldwide-financial-criminal-network-revealed-part1/


(MDC-NYSE) Denver Headquarters of Organized Crime. Illegal Mortgage Backed Securities $100 Trillion, Bank Bailouts, Derivatives $5,000 Trillion and the theft of 12 million American’s Homes through illegal foreclosures.

By Stew Webb

Veterans Today

Denver’s Organized Crime Boss Hogs Leonard Millman and Larry Mizel who run MDC a Financial Conglomerate of Organized Crime who are the Bankers behind the Illegal Mortgage Backed Securities Frauds that lead to the 2008 Bank Bailout which was set up by their partner in crime U.S. President George W Bush to loot the U.S. Treasury and hide their crimes. U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and his Law partner Lanny Breuer maintained the cover up without any prosecutions of these horrendous crimes. Eric Holder and Lanny Breuer head of the Justice Department’s criminal division were partners for years at a Washington law firm that represented a Who’s Who of big banks and other companies at the center of foreclosure fraud. Breuer resigned last year from the Justice Department after a series on the Bank Frauds done by PBS Frontline.com.

The firm, Covington & Burling, is one of Washington’s biggest law firms and represented Financial Fugitive and Scamster Marc Rich when U.S. President William Clinton gave Rich a Presidential Pardon before leaving office in 2000.

The Justice Department hasn’t brought any criminal cases against big banks or other companies involved in Mortgage Frauds, Mortgage servicing, even though the evidence of criminal violations in foreclosure cases are overwhelming the only one who seems to being his job is the Kentucky Attorney General. The evidence, including records from federal and state courts and local Clerks’ offices around the country, shows widespread forgery, perjury, Obstruction of Justice and illegal foreclosures on the homes of over 12.5 million American’s.

While Holder and Breuer were partners at Covington, the firm’s clients Included four of the largest U.S. banks, Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Citigroup, JP Morgan Chase. Servicers perform routine mortgage maintenance tasks, including filing foreclosures, on behalf of mortgage owners, usually groups of investors who bought mortgage-backed securities. Law firm Covington represented Freddie Mac, one of the nation’s biggest issuers of mortgage backed securities, in enforcement investigations by federal financial regulators. A particular concern by those who have been pressing for an investigation is Covington’s involvement with Virginia-based MERS Corp, also known as Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems Inc., also known as MERS, which runs a vast computerized registry of mortgages.

Little known before the mortgage crisis hit, MERS, which stands for Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, has been at the center of complaints about false or erroneous mortgage documents. MERS was created in 1993 by Larry Mizel to cover his back on Illegal Mortgage Frauds dating back to 1977.

CIA Whistleblower Gene Chip Tatum told this reporter that in 1977 while working for DIA Defense Intelligence Agency under the direction of former CIA Director William Colby, Tatum’s direct boss that he and others were ordered to transport files from Don Holmes of Valley Savings and Loan in Lamar, Colorado to the Law Office of Norman Brownstein in Denver. This occurred 5 days per week and in these boxes that Gene Tatum and others transported to Brownstein these boxes contained nearly 150 illegally created Mortgages per week. Additional Collaboration from a CIA source stated that it began with the Sharpsville Savings and Loan in Texas in 1977 as a test to see if Leonard Millman and George HW Bush could get away with these Illegal Mortgages to bleed the (FDIC) Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., and Freddie MAC and Fannie May.

But evidence in numerous state and federal court cases around the country has shown that MERS authorized thousands of bank employees to sign their names as MERS officials. The banks allegedly drew up fake mortgage assignments, making it appear falsely that they had standing to file foreclosures, and then had their own employees sign the documents as MERS “Vice Presidents” or “assistant secretaries. Covington in 2004 also wrote a crucial opinion letter commissioned by MERS, providing legal justification for its electronic registry. It isn’t known to what extent if any Covington has continued to represent the banks and other mortgage firms since Holder and Breuer left.

There also is evidence of routine manufacturing of false mortgage assignments, documents that transfer ownership of mortgages between banks or to groups of investors. In foreclosure actions in courts mortgage assignments are required to show that a bank has the legal right to foreclose. John O’Brien Jr., register of deeds in Salem, Mass., announced that he had sent 31,897 allegedly fraudulent foreclosure-related documents to Holder. O’Brien said he asked for a criminal investigation of servicers and their law firms that had filed the documents because they “show a pattern of fraud,” forgery and false notarizations.

Savings and Loan Collapse

This same Organized Crime Syndicate where behind the collapse of the Savings and Loans and the robbery of the Resolution Trust Corp. (RTC) which was set up by their partner in crime U.S. President George HW Bush in order to hide their thefts from the U.S. Treasury and Regulators. S&L whistleblower faces federal charges 1997 in a secret Grand Jury Leonard Millman agreed to pay a fine of $80 Million Dollars for Bribing Public Officials, Bribing U.S. Attorneys, FBI agents and other too numerous to mention here. Larry Mizel and Norman Phillip Brownstein paid several million each in fines for their Briberies that was later sealed under National Security by U.S. President William Clinton whose lawyer James M. Lyons served on the Board of Directors of MDC.

Hillary Clinton laundered over $2.5 Billion of Narcotics Money from the Iran Contra Drugs for Guns run out of Mena, Arkansas to MDC’s cutout M&L Business Machines Company while her husband Bill Clinton was Governor of Arkansas. Hillary Clinton and her Rose Law firm had created Foreign Trusts for Bush, Millman and Mizel that Norman Brownstein is now the Trustee in order to avoid U.S. Taxes and to hide the true identity of who is behind these trusts. Brownstein is one of six of the CIA Council to then CIA Director George HW Bush

Leonard Millman, Larry Mizel and Norman Brownstein control AIPAC the American Israeli PAC, the ADL Anti Defamation League and the Simon Wiesenthal Center. Both Mizel and Browstein are Directors of AIPAC and The Simon Wiesenthal Center. Leonard Millman’s other partner in crime Convicted HUD figure Philip Winn and a major player in the fake Mortgage Backed Securities and former Director of MDC is a Director of the ADL. Leonard Millman and Larry Mizel created MDC Holdings, Inc. (MDC-NYSE a Delaware Corporation) of Denver, Colorado in 1972 also know as “Frauds Are Us At MDC” will be the center focus in my series of many articles explaining the Illegal created Mortgage Back Securities, duplicate Mortgages they purchased and sold through MDC subsidiary company Asset Investors and other entities as evidenced in my (SEC) Securities and Exchange Commission Whistleblower legal filing.

M.D.C. Holdings, Inc. subsidiary company American Title Company filed for Bankruptcy approximately two weeks before Richard Talley was Murdered February 6, 2014 Murdered:

Richard Talley, 57, was the founder and CEO of American Title, a company he founded in 2001 and a subsidiary of MDC Holdings, Inc. Talley and his company were under investigation by state insurance regulators at the time of his death. He was found in the garage of his Colorado home by a family member who called authorities. Talley reportedly died from seven or eight “self-inflicted” wounds from a nail gun fired into his torso and head.

4th Financial Services Executive Found Dead; “From Self-Inflicted Nail-Gun Wounds” http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-02-07/4th-financial-services-executive-found-dead-self-inflicted-nail-gun-wounds The ugly rash of financial services executive suicides appears to have spread once again. Following the jumping deaths of 2 London bankers and a former-Fed economist in the US, The Denver Post reports Richard Talley, founder and CEO of American Title, was found dead in his home from self-inflicted wounds – from a nail-gun. Talley’s company was under investigation from insurance regulators. Via The Denver Post, Richard Talley, 57, and the company he founded in 2001 were under investigation by state insurance regulators at the time of his death late Tuesday, an agency spokesman confirmed Thursday. It was unclear how long the investigation had been ongoing or its primary focuses. A coroner’s spokeswoman Thursday said Talley was found in his garage by a family member who called authorities. They said Talley died from seven or eight self-inflicted wounds from a nail gun fired into his torso and head. Also unclear is whether Talley’s suicide was related to the investigation by the Colorado Division of Insurance, which regulates title companies.

Also, Mark Carney, CEO Bank of England; Carlos Moedas, Secretary of State Portugal; ex Goldman men. It would be the epitome of human folly to ignore the repetition of the same Wall Street financiers–who have routinely inflicted financial chaos and abject poverty by debt upon the under-developed world for decades; who now have leading roles in enforcing national IOU’s in Europe which they created and they are now devastating each nation; who created and manage the $17 trillion debt of the United States; who are additionally the putative recipients of hidden profit from their Federal Reserve Ponzi scheme that embezzles trillions of dollars from the U.S. government; who permeate and use the U.S. Treasury and other government departments to profit their international business conglomerates; who are additionally major lobbyists and the largest campaign contributors for political candidates.

 

The 2008 worldwide financial chaos started on Wall Street with a sudden realization mortgage backed securities (MBS) were junk bonds. Some pundits claim the bonds were fraudulently represented to European bankers. European banks holding these securities panicked from devalued reserves. (do you think some European bankers told some NYC bankers they would be swimming with concrete boots if they did not buy $700 billion of toxic bonds real quick ?) Loans ceased to be available. Construction ceased while taxes from manufacturers and retailers plummeted. Tax revenue could not cover government fixed expenses. Financial operations of European nations became managed by creditors to guarantee payments on sovereign debt while social programs and government salaries have been slashed. Economists without a PhD would say a bubble burst.

Is there evidence the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank (WB) have similarly created debt in lesser-developed nations for decades and the same financiers are now moving up to European nations? Is this the advance of the New World Order that has been touted by the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) for 70 years? Is the $17 trillion debt of the United States handled by the same financiers and is it now in the initial stages of collection? Has the major funding for these financiers for the past 80 years come from profit concealed by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York (FRBNY) which legally belongs to the U.S. government?

The answer is a collective YES.

The frustrating part is that the financiers received and hid the entire value of the U.S. debt when it was created that funded the conquest but they will also garner lavish $100 million annual remuneration when their fraudulent Ponzi scheme plunges the U.S. society into gut-wrenching poverty.

THE LOAN ARRANGERS

Goldman Sachs (Goldman) assisted Greek politicians (who also ran the national bank) in 2003 to cook the books and impose massive debt upon the citizens (via derivatives and CDS) without their knowledge. Goldman made an initial gross profit of 600 million Euro on the arrangement and then made bets the “shitty” bonds would fail. The chaos of Greece has resulted in massive layoffs of government and civilian employees, loss of governmental services, impoverishment of the nation, riots, and has reduced much of society to dumpster diving. A Goldman man is now the Greek prime minister. The debt arranged by Goldman has been turned over to a troika of the IMF, ECB, and EC that is also supervising the finances of Cyprus and Portugal.

Goldman representatives are also alleged to control the finances of Germany, Italy, Belgium, France, and UK to guarantee payment of debt. Even the CEO of the European Common Bank (ECB) is from Goldman. / Spain, Portugal, Ireland and Iceland each have severe economic problems of similar origins.

The loan arrangements of the WB and the IMF have resulted in impoverishment of numerous nations. After preliminaries, the following “conditionalities” are demanded. A select elite operate// businesses manufacturing exports paying poverty wages while confiscated agricultural land produces items for export. Foreign contractors controlled by the elite have priority on required work. Food and essentials must be imported with control by the elite. National assets such as hospitals, utilities, and roads must be privatized for the lenders’ profit. Currency is devalued to benefit the creditors. / Society becomes a few rich elite with masses living in squalor; the middle class is eliminated. / Nations are plunged into destitution while Wall Street financiers receive $10 to $100 million in annual compensation.

The IMF and WB were established at the Bretton Woods conference in 1944 with primary architects being Alger Hiss and John Maynard Keynes. The first U.S. delegate to the IMF was Harry Dexter White. The agencies have headquarters in Washington D.C.. The IMF determines quota for shareholder nations based upon ability to pay. The U.S. quota for 2013 is SDR 42.1 billion (about US$64 billion). The U.S. has a 17.69 percent shareholder dominant control alleged by one source to be exercised by Timothy Geithner and Ben Bernanke. Another document lists Meg Lundsager as Director on the Executive Board to the IMF. One source identifies the U.S. government as paying 41 % percent of total quotas while another IMF source lists 17.69 percent. The IMF holds 2,814 metric tons of gold among other assets.

The U.S. is also the dominant 15.86 percent shareholder of the WB. Robert Zoellick from Goldman was president of the WB from 2007 to 2012. He has also served as deputy Secretary of State. Lewis Preston from JP Morgan served as president from 1991 to 1995. Alden Clausen from Bank of America was president from 1981 to 1988. Ministers of Finance usually represent nations except for the U.S. The two organizations have an annual meeting together. Construction bonds are sold to raise capital. The groups claim that programs are derived from the United Nations to minimize U.S. government interference.

Members of the WB must first join the IMF by paying an assigned quota, and also pay 88 percent of the IMF assessment to the WB. Then, in summary, the nation must pay US$141,000 and $1.3 million in other assets to purchase shares of the WB. The nation is further obligated to have $22 million available in callable assets. Refusal to join or engage in a project can result in an initial penalty of trade sanctions.

The United States is the exclusive nation that has veto power over any policy change of the IMF and the WB. It is incontrovertible that Wall Street controls the two entities while they have an international government facade.

Ms. Lael Brainard, Undersecretary of the U.S. Treasury, formally requested the U.S. contribute $64 billion to the IMF on April 24, 2013. / The clarity of financial commitments and handling of U.S. obligations, as evidenced by the video of the committee hearing, appears to make the “shitty” Goldman debt to Greece a simple IOU. Obscuration is very profitable for financiers. One wonders if the IMF is ready to transfer physical possession of gold as collateral (at $32 per ounce) to the U.S. (not to FRBNY) for $64 billion.

Rampant corruption within the WB has been reported by whistle blower Senior Counsel Karen Hudes who exposed programs of the Bank of International Settlements (BIS) and the Federal Reserve to control nations. She was promptly sacked (pardon the pun). /

The CEO of the IMF has confirmed the objective of world government. /

INITIATING DEBT

Joseph Stiglitz, former chief economist for the WB, has commented that a ten percent commission for a corrupt politician (such as a finance minister) in a hidden bank account can readily result in a huge debt imposed upon the citizenry beyond their ability to pay. A private debt then becomes a public obligation.

A typical project will raise funds to build a huge electrical power plant or some other large capital investment. The financiers sell bonds backed by the government. The loan requires construction be performed by firms chosen by the lenders. The electrical power will be used to process the nearby aluminum mining owned by the lenders. After construction is finished, the export of ingots to the U.S. is determined to be unprofitable and is discontinued. The nation loses the revenue of the mining but must still pay for the construction bonds, which results in national financial chaos and austerity.

Iceland, as a different methodology, was fleeced by foreign bankers that corrupted the CEOs of Iceland’s three banks. The common thread is that monumental taxes are imposed to pay a pseudo-government debt arranged by a foreign financier which crushes the nation .

Chossudovsky documented numerous third world nations impoverished by the IMF through currency devaluation. The European Central Bank (ECB) is restricted in its issuance of Euros by a requirement to obtain authorization from 17 EZ who use the Euro of the 28 EU member nations. This restricts the issuance of fiat money. (An alternate fiat currency by the IMF could be SDRs.) If the European nations give the ECB authority for unrestricted printing of the Euro (to save Europe from financial disaster, of course) it will affect each and every nation of the Common Market. It will allow stealing the wealth of each member nation by the printing press just as interest bearing Federal Reserve Notes replaced U.S. Notes in the United States during 1913 to 1933. It will put all of Europe under perpetual inescapable exponentially increasing debt. /

[QUESTION: Is the Euro issued to the 1500 eligible banks with the same fraudulent hidden profit scheme the Federal Reserve uses for Federal Reserve Notes? See footnote 52. The Rothschilds have used this scam for centuries.]

The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR, created by David Rockefeller) is a social facade of businesses and organizations to multiply gains and eliminate competition. The organization’s secret agenda is to promote a “New World Order” that will be led by the financial elite; it is touted as the utopian society. / Theories documenting several centuries of existence abound. /

The interlocking Board of Directors of major businesses which allows control by Wall Street involving Rockefeller trusts and foundations has been known for decades. / Recent research concludes sixty percent of global revenue is through Transnational Corporations controlled by financial interests on Wall Street. One percent of corporations control more than 40 percent of world trade. / Such concentration is identified to cause economic instability. / The common ownership of commercial enterprises with government coercive power to eliminate competition does not appear to be in the best interest of the people.

The relationship between international financial institutes is not completely harmonious despite the close affiliation. Stories circulate that Dominique Strauss-Kahn was promoting a new world reserve currency to replace the U.S. dollar.  A visit to New York City is alleged to have led to incarceration and trumped up criminal charges. Charges were dropped after he resigned as head of the IMF. / Several years ago the BIS announced it was going to audit the Federal Reserve. It is not known to have occurred.

It should not be concluded that Wall Street is alpha cock of the financial roost. The Bank of International Settlements (BIS) in Basel issues regulatory decrees that have world wide impact. Basel I (1988) and Basel II (2004) required international banks to maintain specified reserves. Mortgage backed securities were valued at face value while gold was valued at 50 percent of market value. Basel III (2010) authorized banks to use gold as a tier I asset (100 percent of market value) in addition to US dollars for calculating reserves. The result is that banks have been purchasing huge quanties of gold (with less demand for dollars). / The current (manipulated ?) depressed price of gold may be to allow members to purchase bargains.

The precise nature of how BIS owns (the gold assets) and controls the international banks, and how the Bilderberg group / is affiliated, is left for another day, but the objective of European sovereign control being usurped by financial entities has been observed. Godfrey Bloom, UK member of the EU Parliment, expressed his concern over nationalistic control objectives of the EU after he was rebuked by the group: “Already the Euro nationalists have one currency, one flag, one anthem, a foreign service and are creating a home office for justice…They are creating here one Parliament with one executive and one EU citizenry. ..The EU Commission have already taken control of the economies of Ireland and Greece, no doubt others to follow.” /

A former IMF administrator for Ireland, Mr. Ashoka Mody, has stated imposed austerity has never resulted in successful resolving a heavy international debt problem. / (IMF headquarters disputes the statement). But Mr. Mody has missed the point. Austerity is imposed for the financial benefit of Wall Street and that has been enormously successful. The poverty inflicted on various nations is incidental and inconsequential to the IMF.

The Wall Street Journal informs us the IMF is projecting tax increases in a considerable number of “advanced” nations such as the U.S., Europe, and Japan. The story relates it will be a “insignificant” tax on the wealthy. We all know how that goes. Does David Rockefeller pay any personal taxes?  Tim Geithner only pays taxes when he wants congressional approval for a government appointment. The IMF is telling us the middle class is going to get reamed (the IMF says the U.S. has way too low of a tax rate. A seizure of 71 percent has been proposed on bank balances.) just like what has been done in the under-developed nations. The future U.S. society will consist of the abject poor and the elite—no middle class. /

The tax used to confiscate the wealth of the middle class U.S. citizen is called the income tax. Little is the public aware that the statutory imposition of the tax (Title 26, Section 1) was removed by a slight wording change during the rewriting of the Code in 1954. If such a tax existed, it would be an improper infringement on the Right of the citizen to pursue a livelihood as secured by the clause of Liberty in the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments. By not having a liability statute, the tax cannot be alleged in legal process (indictment or information) and submitted to contestation with the burden of proof upon the government as to its validity. The courts rely upon the penalty provisions of sections 7201 through 7215 to enforce a scam tax that does not exist. / Lawyers who vigorously assert constitutional rights have been incarcerated and have their professional careers ruined.

ENTER THE ENFORCERS

It would be a mistake to blame greedy politicians for all of the rapacious debts. John Perkins informs us that if the financier’s offer of a loan is refused, the CIA “jackals” are called in for a “wet operation” (murder). / It is assumed similar pressure may be put on nations to coerce membership in the WB and IMF. Colonel Gaddafi refused to join and paid the price after several unsuccessful attempts. The CIA attempted to kill Castro (who nationalized U.S. company assets and casinos after the CIA helped him overthrow Bastista) numerous times. /

The CIA’s School of the Americans (now WHINSEC) brings foreign military leaders to the U.S. for training. The sessions include recruiting CIA assets along with teaching torture and suppression of protests against their local government. It also permits screening and recruitment of future puppet leaders for nations that require a coup if a ruler becomes reluctant to pay a debt. Al Queda was created by the CIA in the 1980’s (with Osama ben Laden as the leader to drive the USSR out of Afghanistan. When Osama wanted the U.S. out of Afghanistan, he had to go.) and is now spun as the cause for endless violence, terrorism and martial law. /

Numerous sources including the congressional Church Committee have confirmed nefarious acts by the CIA. They include initiating terrorism disguised as revolutions and assassination squads not always in the best interests of the U.S. / / Blackwater (now Academi) mercenaries have acknowledged being operatives of the CIA. The CIA as the muscle arm of the CFR should be obvious; the U.S. government does not have a financial gain from exploitation.

The CIA has been identified by an Italian Supreme Court judge as the controlling element used by the Bilderberg organization to manipulate governments such as in Operation Gladio involving numerous murders. / Rulers who put national interests before financiers’ exploitative interest are demonized by the U.S. as building nuclear weapons, or abusing the indigenous people, or harboring terrorists, or using chemical weapons, or possessing weapons of mass destruction, or some such. If the methodology developed by CIA agent Kermit Roosevelt in 1954 (of recruiting local malcontents and dregs of society with promises of grandeur and supplies of weapons for a rebellion against tyranny) to overthrow the miscreant ruler fails, the U.S. media (all members of the CFR) will be used to inflame the masses to support U.S. military aggression. Recipients of CIA/Wall Street largess include Saddam Hussein, Osama bin Laden, Fidel Castro, Muammar al-Gaddafi, Chavez, Samosa, Noriega, Shah Pahlavi, Stalin, and Hitler.

If nationalistic priorities preempt exploitation, the ruler must go. Hitler was TIME magazine’s 1938 Man of the Year, but then he attacked Stalin. Antony Sutton has documented Wall Street’s sponsoring of Stalin while publicly demonizing him. When Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn made the same observation, his U.S. speaking tour was abruptly canceled. Wall Street could not let JP Morgan’s $60 million investment in the Bolshevik Revolution (that gave Morgan the Czar’s largest gold hoard in the world and a huge oil field) be attacked. If prompt policy decisions were not available from Moscow, they could be obtained from Manhattan.

The U.S. military is the ultimate force to squelch any recalcitrant nation or depose any ruler who establishes a central bank that is not subservient to the BIS. A compliant press to ballyhoo national defense and security is assured by CFR members for the proper spin to gain public support. War mongering is a most profitable business for the CFR. / While war yields profit, it additionally diverts public attention from scandals and oppression at home.

War has a lengthy history of being used by financiers to further their gain. The Magna Carta was the result of King John being pressured to invade Normandy. The Barons who would have had to finance and man the invasion revolted and, at the point of a sword, forced King John to capitulate. The London financiers were dispossessed, suffered bodily harm, and were exiled. /

The CIA uses the U.S. military as a cover, as a supplier of material, and as a source of mercenaries. / U.S. embassies are routinely used as an operational base for the CIA and at least one (Libya) has been alleged to be a torture prison and the source of arms for foreign rebels. It is Wall Street that determines the next nation the U.S. must destroy. /

President Obama, his parents, and his grandparents have a lengthy history with the CIA. /

President George H.W. Bush was CIA Director in 1976. As President, he invaded Iraq in 1991 over weapons of mass destruction that were never found. Numerous other lies to hype aggression have been documented. He called for a New World Order in a speech before Congress on September 11, 1990 and in a speech before the United Nations on September 21, 1992. Colonel Oliver North confessed that Bill Clinton, as governor of Arkansas, facilitated the CIA operation of gun running and drug smuggling after Ollie was granted immunity by Congress—and ridiculed congress for their efforts to control the CIA. The fatal mistake by President Carter was to slash funding for the CIA and his termination of 500 agents. Barbara Honegger claims that Bush (as ex-head of the CIA) and the head of the Democrat National Committee successfully made a deal with the Iranians to defeat Carter with the “October Surprise.” /

JFK made an oath to shatter the CIA after he took the blame for the CIA’s sabotaging the Bay of Pigs invasion. He also planned for the U.S. to discontinue the CIA’s war in Vietnam. / Did Richard Nixon nixing of the CIA’s use of Tibetans for warmongering with China lead to the CIA’s blundering men burgling Watergate? Tapes released in 2013 reveal that Nixon was concerned that factors would torpedo the summit between the U.S. and the Soviet. He warned Kissinger that if they did, he would publicly denounce them on prime time television. The CIA is suggested to have torpedoed Ike’s dream of peace talks with Khrushchev by using a sabotaged CIA U2. / Messin’ with the CIA can have repercussions.

Yugoslavia (Bosnia) was a victim of a more traditional invasion by the U.S. military after the nation refused to be controlled by the BIS banking system and would not allow western powers to exploit their vast natural resources. /

Military action and false flag tactics by the CIA have been evidenced from Tonkin Bay and the Bay of Pigs. / Even before the CIA, HMS Lusitania was a thinly disguised British naval vessel carrying civilians and 500 tons of contraband military explosives deliberately sent into a German submarine patrolled area at reduced speed without escort or evasive maneuvering — it was a set-up used to hype the U.S. into WW I. Similarly, the Japanese diplomatic code was broken 17 months before the “non-surprise” attack on Pearl Harbor. / The oil from Indonesia occupied by Japan was coveted by Wall Street. The 9/11 terrorist attack which collapsedthree towers of the World Trade Center has endless evidence the official report conflicts with any rational analysis. The monumental resources necessary to produce the preliminary conditions, the acts of violence, and the cover-up of forensic evidence far exceed the capability of any cave-dweller in Afghanistan. /

THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH

The US Department of Treasury has been involved with the Financial Stability Board (FSA,”the fourth pillar of international economic control”) of the World Trade Organization (WTO). They and G20 now assert international regulation of shadow banking. A report claims, among other things, to contain authorization to seize bank deposits as in Cyprus. / Compliance with Wall Street objectives is historically confirmed.

Greg Palast has posted an expose’ of an internal memo dated 1997 from Tim Geithner to the Deputy Secretary of the U.S. Treasury Larry Summers. The memo relates how the U.S. Treasury is negotiating (in secret and on behalf of Wall Street) for the FSA to redefine commodity to include the “end game” of financial instruments. All foreign governments would then be required to guarantee payment of derivatives held n their banks. /

Implementation of the plan was led by Geithner and is asserted to have caused the European chaos. The memo includes the private telephone number of five major Wall Street CEO’s so the acceptability of the negotiations could be readily confirmed.

Larry Summers, the boss of the above scheme suggested by Palast to be a criminal offense, has been the Chief Economist at the WB and has worked for a hedge fund. As Secretary of the Treasury he strongly opposed regulation of Credit Default Swaps and other financial controls, and was nominated for CEO of the Federal Reserve. Tim Geithner went from a Treasury neophyte to the IMF then to CEO of FRBNY, to tax evader, to Treasury Secretary who wanted a trillion dollar bailout for banks and for the Fed to have expanded powers, to potential CEO of Federal Reserve.

Total exposure of derivatives (creations of Goldman that now has a minimum $41 Trillion exposure; $70 Trillion by Morgan Chase) may exceed $600 or $1,000 trillion and is largely held by four Wall Street banks. A successful hedge fund operator recently kept a $2 billion profit made on derivatives while depositors will have their bank accounts seized when derivatives tank. Small wonder the government is buying arm and ammunition for many government agencies to suppress public reactions. State police forces are also being militarized to control demonstrations.

TREATIES, PACTS, AND PARTNERSHIPS

A 1972 Executive treaty gave control of 68 percent of U.S. National Parks to the United Nations. Legislation has since required Senate approval of treaties but Secretary of State, John Kerry, claims to be able to make valid U.N. arms control agreements. Executive negotiation and international agreements are touted to supersede any provision of national sovereignty or any act of Congress.

The General Agreement of Tariffs and Trade (GATT) was an instrument initiated by David Rockefeller. President Nixon’s adamant opposition to the loss of sovereignty of the instrument, and his unknowingly being surrounded by Rockefeller’s CFR men, weighed heavily in the plot to remove him from office. /

Another early treaty was North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which, according to some reports, bankrupt Detroit for the benefit of CFR members. The land grab by United Nations Agenda 21 involves UN control over huge areas imposed under the guise of environment protection for the economic benefit of elites. /

Outspoken opponents of Agenda 21, such as Stacy Lynne, have had their children kidnapped, have been labeled enemy combatants and lost all constitutional rights to Due Process. Similar plans for large scale incarcerations of dissidents and “domestic terrorists” have been leaked in FM 3-39.40 Internment and Resettlement Operations. /

The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) is being negotiated by the Trade Representative (an Executive office) “to accord non-discriminatory treatment to investments and investors from each others’ jurisdiction for both new and expanded investments, with only limited exceptions (taken on a negative list basis).” Parenthesis in original. / This is understood to read: Wall Street financiers cannot be excluded from local markets. Sovereignty over investment questions would lie in the WTO to decide disagreements. Any new investment cannot be challenged on a national basis and any absconding of money (theft) is legal unless it is specifically listed on a negative list.

The TTIP usurpation of sovereignty over the United States and European nations is being secretly fast-tracked by President Obama at the negotiations of July 2013. The CFR is pushing for bankers to have financial control of the U.S. similar to the troika control of Europe. / The CFR and CIA are claimed to be responsible for creating the EU with the U.S. to be merged later.

The Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) has involved negotiations with nine nations for seven years pursuing similar control over: “…trademark, geographical indication (cellphone and GPS ?), copyright and related rights (control of the Internet?), patents, trade secrets (protection for CFR members only?), genetic resources (such as GM crops?), and traditional knowledge (any adverse comment on world government is a crime?)…” / An international body would adjudicate questions over these items. The concentration of authority is similar to WB/IMF demands imposed upon creditor nations. Jonathan Turley identifies the TPP ambition to control a monopoly market in pharmaceuticals. /

The Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA) reduces tariffs for member businesses and involves massive transportation corridors for the CANAMEX highways. To reduce the cost of acquiring land, the military of the United States is being used in cooperation with local politicians (under coercion) to drive real estate values down or to drive occupants off their land without compensation. Tariffs by a nation is replaced by permission purchased from CAFTA for international trade. To expect the nations to prosper would be optimistic, at best, when compared with the documented results from the same organizers who control the IMF and WB.

The WTO has announced their first trade agreement. Details of the agreement are not available but the same altruistic objectives of helping poor nations, of eliminating poverty, of feeding the hungry have been common in declared goals of the IMF, WB and the Federal Reserve. Interpretation and enforcement of the treaty will rest with the same operators who have exploited nations, who have impoverished entire societies, and who have brought starvation. To expect different results from the WTO treaty would confirm Barnum’s axiom; “There is a sucker born every minute.” /

Clearly, treaties are used to further NWO control and assistance comes from within the United States government in accordance with the objectives of Wall Street.

THE FEDERAL RESERVE

Is the United States immune to this worldwide exploitation by Wall Street now being experienced in Europe? Clearly not so. The lingo of austerity to condition the public to hardship is already in the media. Government spending and taxation is escalating while the people are warned of reduced government benefits and jobs (and airline traffic delays). The $17 trillion in national debt hangs like a Sword of Damocles while the people are not aware of the fraudulent nature of the inescapable obligation nor the dire consequences of debt collection.

Every dollar of deficit spending ($4 Billion EVERY DAY –7/52 !!) is hidden profit for the Federal Reserve Board of Governors ({BOG}, with ownership assumed but assured to include Goldman and other Wall Street banks) using the auction accounts of Treasury securities. The $8.5 trillion annual receipts and disbursements of the auction accounts are exclusively handled by the FRBNY. They have never been subject to external audit nor are they reported to Congress as required by law. No viable alternate mathematical conclusion for revenue from deficit spending securities has been found. /

The profit of the Federal Reserve (Fed) legally belongs to the government and assuredly the purloined funds have helped finance the Wall Street cabal. Concealment of funds that belong to the government is embezzlement. The Fed operates a Ponzi scheme that is inherently designed to self-destruct. The debt, once started, can never be paid. Issuing a Treasury security to the Fed for deficit spending creates the (book entry) principal of the “loan.” The interest to pay the loan does not exist nor is it created. (The fractional reserve practice of the commercial banks does not change this. Each dollar of reserve has been created from a Treasury security or its numerical multiple. Hypothetically, paying off the national debt to zero would collapse the entire ‘reserve’ to zero and still leave the interest to be paid.) A contract that cannot be culminated is void from its inception — it is an act of fraud. / The Wall Street bankers are alleged to be owners of the (privately owned) BOG.

The perfidy of the Federal Reserve has been taken to the courts in a whistle-blower suit. The court declined to expose the institution that produces so much money for the government to spend on judges’ salaries. Whether the BOG is operating as a government contractor rather than a government agency, or has lost sovereign immunity for systemic violation of its statutory charter or as a criminal embezzler, depends upon the viewpoint. /

[NOTE: The Federal Reserve banks have recent congressional authority to write checks on their own accounts (i.e., to create money as used in the quantitative easing {QE} purchases) in the same manner as commercial banks. They are not restricted by a reserve requirement as are the commercial banks. The Fed can potentially write any amount to cover all loss from derivatives held by Wall Street banks that become worthless. The guaranteeing of derivatives, which were created by Goldman, will be like the banks writing themselves a check then having the public pay them for it.]

Every action of the Federal Reserve for the past five years, which cloaks its operation in as much secrecy as possible, has been to protect Wall Street and international bankers. A Federal Reserve whistle blower relates the more than $1 trillion created by QE’s was to rescue New York banks; it was not to help the economy or homeowners. /

To conclude the $17 trillion national debt (and growing exponentially) will be forgiven is naive. Wall Street banks that handle the redemption of Treasury securities will foreclose in any number of ways. The devouring of Greece and Cyprus will be but a morsel compared to the frenzied gorging on the citizens of the U.S. being endlessly plundered.

[The FRBNY is reported to hold 7,700 tons of gold in its vaults asserted to belong to other nations. The hoard has never been audited. Germany’s demand for the return of their gold has been refused. Gold bars from Fort Knox sold to China were found to be bogus with the Fed being implicated. / ]

Wall Street banks also control the Depository Trust and Clearing Corporation (DTCC) which handles $1.7 quadrillion in securities annually. The ownership of equity or securities held by DTCC is valued at $40 trillion book entry transfers of shares are made for financial market purchases. John Q. Public believes he owns shares in XYZ Inc; actually, DTCC owns the shares. Dividends from companies go to DTCC for distribution. Delays in the transfers of ownership stock have been made at the option of DTCC. Facilitation of naked short selling is also a recorded practice. The bottom line is to reflect on confiscation of depositors’ money with claims they are a subordinate equity position. The Cyprus pattern of seizure (as was done with MF Global) will continue to expand to guarantee banks holding derivatives do not face bankruptcy but, naturally, the elite will be exempt.

INCREASE DEFICIT SPENDING

Democrats quickly contributed to Fed profit by deficit spending with a social agenda including conservation projects, WPA, food stamps, housing assistance, medical care, and such. The benevolent concern for society disguised the confiscated funds being absorbed by an elite egocentric government overhead. The courts reimposed societal mores and work ethics proven self-destructive at Plymouth Rock using expansive constitutional enhancements.

Fiscal policies of the Republican “Old Right” were more frugal. Murray Rothbard relates that Joe McCarthy unwittingly helped open the government spigot. / With Bill Buckley’s war mongering in NATIONAL REVIEW trumpeting the communist menace and red-baiting, the “New Right” increased government deficit spending on militarism. That not only gave direct profit to the owners of the Fed but also profited the manufacturing members of the CFR. “[T]he more (Murray Rothbard) circulated among these (National Review) people, the greater (his) horror because (he) realized with growing certainty that what they wanted above all was total war against the Soviet Union; their fanatical warmongering would settle for no less.” Rothbard concludes Buckley had been a CIA agent and NATIONAL REVIEW was a CIA operation. (id 161, 169.)

The issue is not Democrats verses Republicans, nor liberal verses conservative, nor progressive verses neocon; the issue is Wall Street verses the People. Politicians of both parties pretend spending by the federal government is free money. They ignore the reality that government has nothing to give except what it has confiscated from the citizenry. The overhead cost for government of social programs runs to 80 percent; for military expenditures the cost to society is much higher and deadlier.

Mr. Buckley did not reveal the Soviet Union was the result of $60 Million invested by JP Morgan to finance the “cheapest revolution I every bought.” The Bolshevik Revolution relied upon crucial U.S. government assistance to get the two kingpins to Moscow. The prize for Morgan (a shill for the Rothschild family) was the world’s largest hoard of gold held by the murdered Czar. The USSR was a straw enemy controlled out of Manhattan but ballyhooed as a need to build an indispensable U.S. military power. / The 1945 Communist expansion in the Far East was also a deliberate U.S. foreign policy. / After the collapse of Communism, the war mongering was packaged as protecting the U.S. from terrorism. The CIA is invariably found supplying arms to at least one faction of the acts of terrorism. Frequently, the tyrant being deposed had been pressured to purchase military armament from the U.S. — with U.S. (taxpayer) subsidized money of course. If the first customer does not buy, the second one will and then the CIA will threaten the first. General Smedley Butler was recruited by Wall Street to run for President in the 1930‘s. He chose instead to reveal their perfidy. /

The election of either political party into control of Congress then carries the potential to be used to profit Wall Street. Politicians love to spend somebody else’s money to buy votes at home and let the next generation pay the hidden cost of it. Whether it is money for a medical program, or a new bridge, or to build solar panels, or a new airport, or sports stadium with matching funds from state or local governments, the debt is financed through Wall Street and the piper does not play for free. Wall Street does not demand economic ventures backed by the government to be cost effective.

Corruption by politicians in the United States is eliminated by definition. Campaign contributions, lobbyist’s gifts and perks, and insider market tips are defined by law to be legal — or result in winks. Some surveys suggest the group with the fastest increase in net worth is politicians. Opposition to legislation favorable to Wall Street will find political opponents with huge campaign war chests. And thus, for a few pieces of silver, are politicians intimidated to sell the birthright of the Nation, but much influence can be made without even being elected.

REVOLVING DOOR EMPLOYMENT

Numerous Goldman employees have worked for the U.S. government in key positions. They include Barack Obama with Goldman being his largest campaign contributor ($884,907). An unknown freshman congressman was able to get elected President, and reelected, without a birth certificate (a record of live birth available to a parent upon request without a doctor’s certification was offered) or challenge by either political party – and with judicial immunity. The Manhattan office of both political parties agreed to the plan. The Barack Obama record of constitutional trampling, of unrestrained spending, of claims of executive immunity from accountability, of consolidating all political power within the executive penumbra, is unprecedented. / A lengthy list of Goldman employees who moved to government positions has been compiled. / Should pundits conclude Goldman already controls the U.S. government?

Hank Paulsen (ex CEO of Goldman, sometimes Paulson) as Secretary of the Treasury begged Congress for $700 billion to save his $500 million in Goldman stock from bankruptcy with the pretense of saving American International Group (AIG) and the Nation. / Paulsen also eliminated more than $200 million in taxes with his brief government employment. Goldman received more than $14 billion from the bailout of AIG. More than a $1.5 billion benefit went to Goldman from the “fiscal cliff” settlement of December 2012. / Goldman borrowed $784 billion from the Fed between 2008 to 2010 while 953 employees received bonuses over a million dollars.

An extensive listing of putative criminal actions by Goldman, including deliberate fraudulent actions that caused the 1929 collapse, has been compiled. Goldman created derivatives and MBS are identified as causes of the current chaos. /

This writing has dealt primarily with Anglo-American entities. Evan Jones has written Australian banks, with British ties and judicial assistance, are deliberately ruining viable businesses to reap bankruptcy bargains. /

CONCLUSION

The U.S. government is facilitating a national self-destruction for the benefit of Wall Street’s megalomaniac obsession. The pattern has been field tested by the IMF and WB for decades and is now being used in Europe. The $17 trillion U.S. debt is the end goal collection.

Every dollar of the $17 trillion national debt has been a profit for the Fed hidden by the FRBNY. When the economy slows as debt instruments (derivatives, MBS) are exposed as worthless (market value is destroyed), more deficit spending is required to “stimulate” the economy (read– maintain the status quo by inflating values and buying derivatives and MBS to rescue TBTF Wall Street banks). Stocks (owned by the rich) increase in value from inflation but fixed assets (CD’s, life insurance, etc., owned by the middle class) lose value. The stumbling economy causes reductions in tax revenue which defunds social programs (i.e., austerity) while the public is told the government debt is inviolable. Seizure of assets in bank accounts and DTCC will occur. The government will have a fire sale of government assets to Wall Street — on the financiers’ terms — as in Greece. Owners of the Fed will acquire the entire United States and the people will be paupers — just as they did in Haiti. Ref. DAMNING THE FLOOD by Peter Hallward

Numbers About The Global Financial Ponzi Scheme That Should Be Burned Into Your Brain

06/16/2014

http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/12-numbers-about-the-global-financial-ponzi-scheme-that-should-be-burned-into-your-brain

6-16-2014 9-16-54 AM

By Michael Snyder

The numbers that you are about to see are likely to shock you.  They prove that the global financial Ponzi scheme is far more extensive than most people would ever dare to imagine.  As you will see below, the total amount of debt in the world is now more than three times greater than global GDP.  In other words, you could take every single good and service produced on the entire planet this year, next year and the year after that and it still would not be enough to pay off all the debt.  But even that number pales in comparison to the exposure that big global banks have to derivatives contracts.  It is hard to put into words how reckless they have been.  At the low end of the estimates, the total exposure that global banks have to derivatives contracts is 710 trillion dollars.  That is an amount of money that is almost unimaginable.  And the reality of the matter is that there is really not all that much actual “money” in circulation today.  In fact, as you will read about below, there is only a little bit more than a trillion dollars of U.S. currency that you can actually hold in your hands in existence.  If we all went out and tried to close our bank accounts and investment portfolios all at once, that would create a major league crisis.  The truth is that our financial system is little more than a giant pyramid scheme that is based on debt and paper promises.  It is literally a miracle that it has survived for so long without collapsing already.

When Americans think about the financial crisis that we are facing, the largest number that they usually can think of is the size of the U.S. national debt.  And at over 17 trillion dollars, it truly is massive.  But it is actually the 2nd-smallest number on the list below.  The following are 12 numbers about the global financial Ponzi scheme that should be burned into your brain…

$1,280,000,000,000 – Most people are really surprised when they hear this number.  Right now, there is only 1.28 trillion dollars worth of U.S. currency floating around out there.

$17,555,165,805,212.27 – This is the size of the U.S. national debt.  It has grown by more than 10 trillion dollars over the past ten years.

$32,000,000,000,000 – This is the total amount of money that the global elite have stashed in offshore banks (that we know about).

$48,611,684,000,000 – This is the total exposure that Goldman Sachs has to derivatives contracts.

$59,398,590,000,000 – This is the total amount of debt (government, corporate, consumer, etc.) in the U.S. financial system.  40 years ago, this number was just a little bit above 2 trillion dollars.

$70,088,625,000,000 – This is the total exposure that JPMorgan Chase has to derivatives contracts.

$71,830,000,000,000 – This is the approximate size of the GDP of the entire world.

$75,000,000,000,000 – This is approximately the total exposure that German banking giant Deutsche Bank has to derivatives contracts.

$100,000,000,000,000 – This is the total amount of government debt in the entire world.  This amount has grown by $30 trillion just since mid-2007.

$223,300,000,000,000 – This is the approximate size of the total amount of debt in the entire world.

$236,637,271,000,000 – According to the U.S. government, this is the total exposure that the top 25 banks in the United States have to derivatives contracts.  But those banks only have total assets of about 9.4 trillion dollars combined.  In other words, the exposure of our largest banks to derivatives outweighs their total assets by a ratio of about 25 to 1.

$710,000,000,000,000 to $1,500,000,000,000,000 – The estimates of the total notional value of all global derivatives contracts generally fall within this range.  At the high end of the range, the ratio of derivatives exposure to global GDP is about 21 to 1.

Most people tend to assume that the “authorities” have fixed whatever caused the financial world to almost end back in 2008, but that is not the case at all.

In fact, the total amount of government debt around the globe has grown by about 40 percent since then, and the “too big to fail banks” have collectively gotten 37 percent larger since then.

Our “authorities” didn’t fix anything.  All they did was reinflate the bubble and kick the can down the road for a little while.

I don’t know how anyone can take an honest look at the numbers and not come to the conclusion that this is completely and totally unsustainable.

How much debt can the global financial system take before it utterly collapses?

How recklessly can the big banks behave before the house of cards that they have constructed implodes underneath them?

For the moment, everything seems fine.  Stock markets around the world have been setting record highs and credit is flowing like wine.

But at some point a day of reckoning is coming, and when it arrives it is going to be the most painful financial crisis the world has ever seen.

If you plan on getting ready before it strikes, now is the time to do so.

The Globalization / Economic Development Matrix

“What is the Matrix? Control. The Matrix is a computer generated dream world, built to keep us under control, in order to change a human being into this” [holds up a common flashlight battery].”

“No! I don’t believe it! It’s not possible!”

“I didn’t say it would be easy, Neo. I just said it would be the truth.”

~Morpheus & Neo, The Matrix

Iran had come a long way, although it still had a ways to go. A democratic election in 1951 had made Mohammed Mosaddegh Iran’s Prime Minister. Mosadegh, a nationalist, began a series of land reforms. He believed the Iranian people should benefit from the development of resources on Iranian soil, the most important of which was oil. He had a great deal of popular support. Later that year, he signed legislation nationalizing the then-British owned oil industry.

To say this upset Anglo-American corporatists in smoke-filled rooms is putting it mildly. Efforts began in controlled media to portray Mosadegh as having fallen under the spell of communism. Threats followed. Mosadegh stood his ground. He was portrayed in said media as a “dictator.” On August 19, 1953, a coup masterminded by the CIA for the British MI6 deposed Mosadegh’s government and put Reza Pahlavi, known as the Shah of Iran, back in power.

The coup was called Operation Ajax. One man did the most to mastermind it: Kermit Roosevelt (FDR’s grandson). The Shah, who had been educated in the U.S., would restore Anglo-American corporatism. His government, which encouraged Western-style materialism, would brutalize political dissidents for the next quarter century, helping incubate Islamic radicalism.

Guatemalans had also elected a nationalist in the early 1950s, Jacobo Arbenz, who initiated land reforms. These would allow his own people to benefit from development instead of money leaving the country in corporate coffers. United Fruit Company, which had controlled the Guatemalan economy for decades, didn’t care to have its supremacy challenged. The corporation launched the same ploy: Guatemala was in danger of going communist! The ploy worked again. In 1954, the world saw another U.S.-backed coup that deposed Arbenz and instilled someone more “cooperative.” That person happened to be Carlos Castillo Armas, another tyrant who imprisoned and tortured dissidents. United Fruit was back at the helm, and the phrasebanana republic crept into the political lexicon.

It quickly became clear inside the smoke-filled rooms that actions of this sort were dangerous. They were too visible. Had the CIA’s role in the Iranian coup been exposed at the time, it could have caused the U.S. government a lot of grief, especially in a Muslim world rising to consciousness of how its land and oil reserves were being plundered by British-American interests who took their profits out of the country.

Quietly, behind the scenes, corporatists devised a new strategy. Instead of sending in the CIA, they would work through private consultants—economic hit men (EHMs). Enter John Perkins. In his riveting book on the subject, he tells us that at first, they were actually called that. “Who would take it seriously?” he quotes his mentor. The idea sounds like the product of someone who has read too much Robert Ludlam. That was the point.

Perkins tells of the directed economic development of nations on multiple continents: Ecuador, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, Venezuela, others. Thecorporatocracy—the aggregation of global corporations, sources of funding such as the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank, and major governments such as that of the U.S. and Great Britain (he doesn’t talk about the British much, an unfortunate lacuna)—learned subtlety. Instead of orchestrating a coup, a consulting firm contracted for the purpose would send in an EHM—the job Perkins tells us ashamedly he did for ten years.

The EHM’s job: go into a small country and offer a newly elected popular leader enough money to make his eyes water: for himself and his family, and for a few elite families. The EHM will have developed—or more exactly, fabricated (something which, as Perkins explains, “econometrics” makes possible)—reports exaggerating the country’s prospects for economic development. This would justify a huge loan from the IMF or the World Bank. The leader and his elite friends could keep enough for themselves to live in splendor; the rest would go to corporations who would build up infrastructure: roads and highways, bridges and dams, electrical and communications systems, airports, Western-style shopping malls, plush hotels and restaurants, etc.

Going along with the promise of huge sums of money was a thinly-veiled threat: play ball, or sooner or later you’re going down!

The country would find itself with a huge debt it couldn’t repay. That was the plan. The EHM would return. He would offer to have the debt refinanced in exchange for, e.g., selling resources (e.g., oil) dirt cheap, allowing a U.S. military base on its soil, voting with the U.S. at the UN, or—much later—signing a “free trade” agreement. The price tag: the leader serves the corporatocracy instead of his own. Indigenous peoples, that is, would not see tangible benefits, in the form of better health care, education, etc. Cooperation didn’t erase the debt, after all, and the bulk of the country’s resources would have to go to paying it down.

Some refused to be corrupted. Examples: Jaime Roldóz of Ecuador and Omar Torrijos of Panama. Both sought economic development that would improve the lot of their own people. Torrijos was a hero to Latin Americans because of his skillful negotiation of the Panama Canal Treaty. Both had won democratic elections, and had plenty of popular support.

This is when those Perkins calls the jackals go in. They plot an assassination. Both Roldóz and Torrijos died in plane crashes—clearly acts of sabotage—just two months apart in 1981. In the case of Panama, again someone seen as “more reasonable” replaced him: Manuel Noriega. Noriega was known to be corrupt, to be trafficking illegal drugs. As long as he cooperated, his handlers looked the other way. But when all is said and done, he was Panamanian and wearied of serving the bully to the north at the expense of his own. He began dragging his feet. This was a tactical mistake. His nose wasn’t clean. Bush the Elder could label him a drug dealer. The controlled media piled on, calling him “dangerous” and “evil” and “a monster” (in Hollywood-saturated middle America, that one always works!). Bush felt authorized in sending in the military in to take him down.

Thus on December 20, 1989, the U.S military flattened Panama City, setting fire to large neighborhoods, killing what some estimate to have been three to five thousand innocent Panamanians: human beings whose only “crime” was living under a government that has ceased serving the corporatocracy. We don’t have a precise body count, because U.S. troops kept the local press, the Red Cross, and other humanitarian organizations out of the area for three days. Noriega was flown to the U.S, put on trial for such charges as “racketeering” and “money laundering,” and has spent the rest of his life in prison, first in the U.S. and now in his native country.

Perkins interpreted the action in Panama as a sign that the EHM approach wasn’t working, or at least wasn’t working consistently enough. Too many “tin horn dictators” were refusing to serve corporatist masters. Plus, Bush the Elder was trying to overcome the infamous “wimp” image that suggested he wasn’t fit to fill the shoes left by his popular predecessor, Ronald Reagan.

The jackals, moreover, don’t always succeed. When they fail, invasion is the last resort. This appears to be what happened in the case of Iraq’s Saddam Hussein. Hussein had been put in power in 1980 while media attention was riveted on the Iranian hostage crisis which ruined Jimmy Carter’s presidency and helped Reagan’s star rise. Perkins describes the plans the corporatocracy had for Hussein’s oil-rich country, paralleling those which turned Saudi Arabia into a regional power, enabled the House of Saud to roll in cash, while resolving the OPEC-led embargo of the 1970s. Perkins describes this as the “Saudi Arabia Money-laundering Affair” (SAMA). “Money laundering,” you see, is legal when the corporatocracy does it.

But Hussein also stopped cooperating. This was bad news, not just because of Iraq’s oil reserves but its strategic location. The Bush regime sought a means of cutting him down to size, and found it when he invaded Kuwait in 1990 thinking he had a “green light” from the U.S. via our own ambassador. Bush, however, responded with the Gulf War. He accused Hussein of “violating international law”—never mind his own destruction of Panama City just a year before. Hussein’s army was no match for the international offensive Bush launched, of course; he was quickly driven out of Kuwait, and no longer the “wimp,” Bush’s popularity soared! He left a hopefully chastened Saddam in power, however. But Saddam still wouldn’t cooperate with the corporatocracy. The U.S. continued attempting to buy his cooperation by supporting Iraq’s war with Iran that followed. He wouldn’t yield.

There are claims that when the world obtained the euro in the 2000 decade, Saddam wanted to sell Iraqi oil in euros instead of dollars. This could have set off a chain reaction toppling the petrodollar system (oil must be bought and sold on world markets using dollars). This would have doomed the global empire, which depended not just on Middle East oil but on the fact that oil is sold in world markets in dollars. There are other theories. Let’s not misunderstand. The man was no saint. He was a sociopathic tyrant, the sort of person the CIA tends to support when he does what he’s told. But he refused to bow down before his presumed masters who had killed thousands of Iraqi civilians and turned his country into a war zone.

Doubtless knowing the dangers, he’d surrounded himself with top flight bodyguards and sending around lookalikes, which would make it difficult for a jackal to know he was targeting the right person. The result was the post-9/11 declaration of Iraq as an “axis of evil” nation, the March 19, 2003 invasion, and ensuing Iraq War which killed over 4,000 American troops, left thousands more maimed for life, killed or displaced tens of thousands more Iraqis, left the country in ruins, while costing U.S. taxpayers billions. In short, a disaster!

Perkins tells us that what compelled him to tell his story was 9/11. He’d started writing his book several times, stopping in response to pressure tactics and even bribes. An alternative energy company he’d founded after leaving the EHM business did very well; contacts and resources he needed just seemed to be there when he needed them. He attributed this to his silence about the EHM business. Finally he sold the business for a nice profit. The 9/11 attacks changed his mind about remaining silent. He had a story to tell, and the resources to tell it.

Clearly—for better or for worse—Perkins appears to accept the official narrative on those attacks. For sure, there are regions in the world where the U.S. isn’t liked very much. This, perhaps, is the one thing that makes the official story at all credible. He’s told his story at great risk. Obviously the corporatocracy hires some truly evil sociopaths—people able to kill without remorse. I’ve wondered if he wears bullet-proof clothing outdoors. I don’t know.

This picture that emerges of the U.S. foreign policy of at least the past 64 years—that of the “desert of the real” outside the “real matrix”—is quite different from that of textbooks and controlled media propaganda. The latter present the U.S. as the “indispensable nation” bringing “liberal democracy” and “market capitalism” to the “third world,” while having contained “communism” until the Soviet Union “collapsed.”

Indigenous peoples see things very differently, of course. They see wrecked local economies, as corporations use trade liberalization to import goods and sell them at below-market rates, destroying indigenous trade (the equivalent of Mom and Pop being driven out of business when a Wal-Mart goes in). Their agricultural lands taken by the corporations, local peoples have a “choice” between working in the corporations’ sweatshops for poverty wages or starving (just like Pop going from proud store owner to minimum-wage peon). They see ruined ecosystems, as they end up living and sometimes dying alongside rivers and lakes polluted from corporations dumping toxic waste that reaches the water table. The propaganda mill then says they are fortunate to be able to work in sweatshops: one dollar per day is better than zero dollars per day!

Indigenous peoples who launched protests against such practices found themselves labeled “communists” in line with the Western mainstream ideological “matrix.” This ideology divides the world into “capitalists”—those who profit from, participate in, support, or go along with the global corporatocracy—and “socialists” or “communists”—nationalists or populists who stand up for the rights of their own people to at least a portion of profits from their nations’ own natural resources, or otherwise live as they see fit according to their traditional ways and be left alone.

Who shapes this ideology? Western economists have used this vocabulary since the days of Karl Marx, of course. Today, behind controlled media are six leviathan corporations, keyed to government, leviathan banks, and the debt-based system controlled by the Federal Reserve and supportive of globalization (the IMF, World Bank, etc.). Government has certainly done its part, via its well-paid economists pushing “free trade.”

Among the things that make this ideology so effective is the relative isolation of most Americans from the rest of the world. Most have never visited a foreign country in, e.g., Central or South America, much less lived in one. Their image of indigenous peoples has been shaped by pictures of mostly-unclothed “natives” in National Geographic. Most have never had to learn a foreign language. They have never sat down across a table from an Iraqi, Venezuelan, or a Chilean who lived under the Pinochet dictatorship that ran Chile from 1973 to 1990 and listened to what they have to say. Most gringos’ sources of information are the above controlled media, which speaks of “tin horn dictators” and “unruly peasants” who “don’t appreciate” what the “civilized world” is doing for them.

Making things worse is how education has declined in the U.S. I saw this personally, as an entire generation bought into the it’s-morning-in-Americafoolishness that followed the Reagan election in 1980. So-called conservatives cheered that college kids had cut their hair, cleaned themselves up, were dressing nicely, and majoring in business instead of philosophy. As an aspiring university professor doing graduate work I saw the truth: many “hippies” of the ’60s and ’70s had read books and could discuss issues with at least some intelligence even if they didn’t get everything right—not all of them took LSD. The “preppies” (their term for themselves) of the ’80s could barely write coherent sentences. By 1987, the year I received my Ph.D., the average college student couldn’t find Iraq on a map. And by the way, drug use didn’t disappear from campuses in the 1980s.

That was before political correctness hit. That, of course, just pushed education the rest of the way off a cliff. But that’s another story. Just to note: one reason we have over a trillion dollars in outstanding student loan debt is the prevailing illiteracy, especially financial illiteracy—among vulnerable high school students lured to college whether they should be there or not; it reflects the absense of real education as they take ridiculous “gender studies” courses, and then are transformed into debt-slaves when they graduate.

We are talking about preparing a controlled population for life plugged into the “real matrix.” Out in the “desert of the real,” outside the fantasy of Western economic and media propaganda including pseudo-intellectuals going on about the “inevitability of globalization”: on one side there is still the alliance of money-hungry corporations, power-hungry politicians and other government officials able to be bought, and sociopaths willing and able to take out refuseniks. On the other side are indigenous peoples—now including the U.S.’s own former middle class!—typically poor in resources, not well organized, and wishing only to live in traditional ways with their families, communities, religious beliefs, agrarian local economies, etc. We wonder, of course, about the origins of Arab Spring and other evidence of unrest in the world outside the American cultural bubble.

As this series continues we will underscore, where possible, the worldviews on collision course. Perkins entitled a central chapter of his book “American Republic versus Global Empire.” As I’ve stressed in previous articles, the U.S. was founded on a set of moral principles—principles rooted in the idea, however we cash it out, that moral and spiritual reality is not exhausted by physical or material reality or economic reality, and that individuals have the right to live as they see fit if they are not harming others. The result was a Constitutional republic. It wasn’t perfect. But it was the best hope humanity had at the time.

The globalization of the corporatocracy is founded on materialism: the idea, ultimately, that nothing exists beyond the physical or material world, operating according to the laws of mechanics and economics, and that there are therefore no moral or spiritual principles beyond pleasure, mass consumption, and the pursuit of wealth and power. Materialism leads to the idea that those in power answer only to each other. Greed and corruption dominate: “Gekko-ism” (“greed … is good”).

This worldview is a wrecking ball of destruction. It has decimated cultures—including our own, little by little. Economics rises as a “science” the main purpose of which is to construct rationalizations (e.g., the “econometrics” Perkins mentions). Among the revelations of the “Fate of Empires” articles (here and here) were that the pursuit of money as an end in itself is dangerous. Unless controlled by a sound worldview, it turns on the civilization that gave rise to it and destroys it from within little by little. It sets a process in motion that has to expand and keep on expanding. It therefore tries to take over everything.

You arrive in a world where normalcy means knowing the price of everything and the value of nothing. A medium of exchange has come to circumscribe all our lives whether we subscribe to a materialist philosophy or not. Most people in advanced societies go to work helping CEOs get richer. We are told from childhood that this is having a good “work ethic,” although prosperity eludes us peons. We see no credible way out. This breeds cynicism and disillusionment—attitudes that undermine a people’s incentive to 5change what ought to be changed. The irony is that long ago, money became electronic smoke and mirrors: itself part of the “real matrix.” In the “desert of the real,” this system is unsustainable in any reasonable sense of that term. We’ll see this in the next installment.

Next: The Financialization Matrix.

CHOSEN DESTROYER OF AMERICA

06/13/2014

http://www.newswithviews.com/Roth/laurie436.htm

 By Dr. Laurie Roth

June 13, 2014
NewsWithViews.com

America and her future are at a critical crossroads in history. Will we lead, achieve and serve or be pressed into the ash heap of fallen empires? Rome – Greece – Persia – USA – It kind of has a ring to it — kind of like a fossil ‘rat pack’ of fame and power gone wrong.

What is Obama’s dream? – To transform the U.S.! To what?

Obama doesn’t have a dream to destroy America and make her disappear but rather to enslave, control and manipulate us and all our assets. All those who resist his agenda will be destroyed. His stated views written and spoken for his whole ‘fake out’ career have been to be the leader of an international movement and control the entire world with international laws.

Step one is to seize and redistribute all wealth, make America a mass of amorality and crush real morality inspired by the God of the Holy Bible. Obama is a radical – Communist – Islamic and has always hated what the real America represents. Christians, conservatives and patriots must go, so must her spirit and real history of greatness.

Obama intends to make this transformation happen through clear and thought out methodology. He has never just had a dream or philosophy he operates from but detailed plans and international – Islamic support. He has always mysteriously had billions of dollars in backing. It is most clear that Obama, from birth was the chosen destroyer of America. Why, the massive millions spent to hide all Obama’s documents — falsifying his birth records, use of false social security cards and hiding College records? Think about it a second. Have you ever heard of any U.S. President ever spending millions to hide every detail of his life from the people?

We see Obama organizing and enforcing a tectonic shift through the Islamic lead caliphate- with the goal of controlling the entire world one day. We have watched Obama side with Islamic dictator after dictator – exposing again and again his real faith in Allah and Muhammad, not the Holy Bible and Jesus Christ. Think of the endless amount of corrupt and criminal dictators and terrorist groups he has boldly backed – Zelaya, Morsi, giving aid and comfort to the Taliban, employing Muslim Brotherhood members through out his staff on and on it goes. He always sides against the Christians and Jews and for Islamic radicals.

Scandals of destruction and corruption collect around Obama like snowflakes in a snowstorm. Now we get to wade through his complete violation and betrayal of our Vets with the Veterans Administration horror show and his illegal exchange of 5 top ranking Taliban commanders for a known Islamic radical and deserter. Naturally, Obama committed another crime by bypassing Congress and not giving them 30 days to respond. Now we shall see if Congress has already been bought and paid for or will stand for the law and the people. This latest crime of Obama is serious enough that if Congress will act, Obama could be facing huge prison time.

So, what is it to be people…tyranny and control or freedom and achievement? Obama has already decided but what will Congress, the 2014 and 2016 elections and ‘the people decide?

Join me each day as I explore these and other issues on my national radio show from 7-10pm PAC at: www.therothshow.com.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

As each day passes and more and more tyranny is imposed on the people without any blowback, OBUMA is more and more encouraged to destroy our way of life. I despair of my fellow countrymen for not standing up to this tyrant and demanding his expulsion and indictment. And, let’s not forget our duly elected representatives who cower in their offices and sell our freedoms and economy to the corporations. History will make a laughing stock of the so called courageous Americans who bend over and take the shaft. People where is your spirit?

SHUTDOWN SOLUTION OPT OUT OF TYRANNY

06/12/2014

 It’s Time For A Do-It-Ourselves Revolution

“All countries are basically social arrangements, accommodations to changing circumstances.
No matter how permanent and even sacred they may seem at any one time,
in fact they are all artificial and temporary.”
– Strobe Talbott

 By David Degraw

How much longer are we going to protest and post online reports, rants, videos and launch campaigns that will hopefully raise awareness on issue after issue, problem after problem, as the situation gets worse? How much longer are we going to just keep crying about the need for change and pleading with puppet politicians in hopes that they will care about anything other than what their top campaign contributors think? At what point are we going to start acting like free and responsible citizens and stop acting like disgruntled servants waiting for our masters to save us and do the right thing?

C’mon people, let’s grow up and get real! The reformers have had their chance. For decades reformers have desperately clung to the fleeting belief that they can change the system from within. Well, after the latest government shutdown fiasco, the jury is now clearly in! We cannot allow the continued delusion and denial of reformers to prolong our suffering any longer. While reformers collect their paychecks, we are dying a slow painful death.

How many more crises will we endure before we truly act upon the fact that the government is working against our interests? How much more proof do we need? The current TWO-party oligarchy is a parasite sucking the life and wealth out of us. An organized criminal class has taken control of our government and rigged the game against us. It’s an undeniable truth. Even the propagandized masses realize this now. Poll after poll shows all-time record low approval ratings for this government. The main point of the Declaration of Independence is now more relevant than it was back in 1776; the government no longer has the consent of the governed.

As Thomas Jefferson wisely said many generations ago, “Every generation needs a new revolution.” The only reason why we haven’t evolved the government or solved any of the major problems we are confronted by is because this antiqued governmental system is now wholly corrupt! Our future has been sold to the highest bidder and is now held hostage by “special interests,” by a TWO-party oligarchy. People no longer trust the government or the corporate puppets that run it. The majority has lost faith in our political, economic and legal system.

We are toiling in a country where 50% of the population is either in poverty or “near poverty,” and 75% lives paycheck to paycheck. Meanwhile, US millionaires have $50 TRILLION in wealth. The rich have never been richer, while we have an all-time record number of people in poverty and prison. There is no need for us to be struggling in such hardship. There is more than enough wealth to fix our problems and evolve society for the benefit of all. For all the problems we face, there are effective solutions. Solutions that are being held back due to corruption. How much longer are we going to keep banging our heads against this same old wall? THIS INSANITY HAS TO STOP!!

Banana Republic “Elections”

The electoral process is now completely rigged. The Supreme Court has become supremely corrupt. They consistently side with corruption, removing every last restraint on the corrupting influence of money in politics. You now need millions of dollars to even be considered for Congress. On top of that, the mainstream media will only give airtime to status quo supporting, paid off politicians. Both corrupt parties control the televised debates, so you can’t even get into the debate without bowing to the oligarchy. To sum it up, without millions of dollars, the endorsement of either wing of the oligarchy or the blessing of the mainstream media, you can’t achieve meaningful power. That’s not even mentioning the difficulty of getting on ballots in the first place, or gerrymandering.

If you somehow make it past all those barriers of corruption, good luck dealing with the fact that electronic “voting” machines produce easily hacked, unverifiable results that are tallied in secrecy. These machines are owned by private companies that are in bed with leaders of both parties and the intelligence community. If you have plans to go against the entrenched power structure, these “voting” machines will have mysterious “glitches” that make votes automatically go to one of the two puppet parties. Do you seriously think privately held “voting” machine companies and the NSA are going to let elections be won by real change-makers?

Alas, it would take a miracle for a meaningful number of candidates to ever make a serious run in the first place. Both puppet parties and the mainstream media will launch a relentless propaganda attack. Even if they could overcome that, the NSA will have enough private information on them, even if they are angels in their personal life, to blackmail or concoct false smear campaigns that will be carried out by psychological operations experts through relentless 24/7 wall-to-wall media attacks. If a critical mass of candidates somehow someway do the impossible, pull of a miracle of unprecedented proportions and break through all those barriers of corruption, then, at that point, you can be sure that there will be an assassination list with those change-making candidates’ names at the top of it.

If you’re naïve enough to think that this is all overly cynical exaggerating, you are not paying attention. Look at the assassination plans that were created for protesters during the Occupy Movement. Before they were able to crush a peaceful protest with brutal police state force, they were ready to start gunning down protesters. Just imagine what they would do if any of those protesters became serious candidates for the highest offices in the land. Whether you want to believe it or not, this is the reality of our present situation. Our political process is controlled by a tyrannical totalitarian regime.

After analyzing all options, the only real, legitimate option we have is to organize a grassroots decentralized movement that forms new alternative, self-sufficient communities. At this time, setting upautonomous communities is a commonsense solution, and the most effective way to avoid the fallout from a corrupted collapsing system.

Opt Out of the Tyrannical Regime!

“All men recognize the right of revolution; that is, the right to refuse allegiance to, and to resist, the government, when its tyranny or its inefficiency is great and unendurable. And oppression and robbery are organized, I say; let us not have such a machine any longer. I think that it is not too soon for honest men to rebel and revolutionize.”
– Henry David Thoreau, On the Duty of Civil Disobedience

We occupied in protest. We raised the awareness level of the 99%. We have had a significant impact on mass consciousness. Now, it’s time to step it up! As Jim Morrison sang, “They’ve got the guns, but we got the numbers.” Let’s start acting like we still live in a free society. Let’s opt out of the tyrannical regime!

The overwhelming majority falsely believes that we can’t create change, which is why we are in this mess. The mainstream media has propagandized most people into feeling like we can’t do anything to fix the problems we are confronted by. BULLSHIT!! We live in the richest, most technologically advanced society humanity has ever known. We don’t need the plastic puppet politicians anymore. They’re obsolete!

It’s time for us to evolve society by starting our own autonomous local communities. Occupy inspired thousands of autonomous camps. What if we reestablished those camps as permanent Sustainable Autonomous Zones? There are already many intentional communities and collectives that are organically growing all over the place. Let’s learn from them. We’ve dedicated our energy to working on a plan to create a decentralized network of Sustainable Autonomous Zones so we can begin creating self-sufficientcommunities that can model new ways of living that make present ways of living obsolete. As Buckminster Fuller brilliantly said, “You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”

There is now a critical mass of citizens who are aware and capable enough to start these self-sufficient communities. Take it upon yourself to organize people in your community. Create independent social networks to communicate and organize, MEET IN PERSON, set up communities of support in your neighborhood. Bring a community of aware and capable citizens together in your own way and figure out systems that work best for you.

We Need a Do-It-Ourselves Revolution

Thriving communities can model new ways of living and we can create a support system that enables them to proliferate widely. If autonomous communities want to organize on a larger scale, there are now ways for them to easily do so. We are living in an interconnected technological society. People throughout the world have been experimenting with more efficient forms of governance. Liquid Democracy is an example of a dynamic and effective information age style of government that sane societies would embrace over what we have now.

Out of these communities, we can organically grow new systems of governance. We don’t have to fire a single shot or let the present situation descend further into violence. We just need to create a better system on a local level. As we prove the effectiveness of our new systems, the current system, which is already in a state of collapse, will crumble. If the corrupt establishment resorts to violence and attacks us again, it will only further galvanize the masses in support of us. A marginalized critical mass of people are suffering. Once we roll up our sleeves, lead by example and begin to provide solutions, they will be on our side.

It all comes down to a simple question: Are you a servant or are you a free individual? This is the most serious and profound question you need to answer, for your own sake, for the sake of your family and your future.

For all you free, aware and critically thinking people who realize that our current government is in a state of collapse and are ready for a Do-It-Ourselves revolution, we have just begun organizing on an independent social network called EvolveSociety.org. We would love for you to join and let us know what you are doing. Many of you are already doing inspiring and effective solution-based work. Let’s learn from each other and take it to the next logical level: decentralized autonomous local communities, which will form new effective ways of living, free from tyranny.

How To Overthrow America

06/11/2014

 http://www.zombie-slayer.com/neal/?p=1187

 Neal Ross

9 June 2014
Do you think it is possible for a group of people to completely take over a country without firing a single shot? Most wars in which one country invades another end up costing countless lives on both sides before the invasion is either repelled, or is successful. Our country, our system of government, was unique in that the people, through representatives of the various states, gathered together and decided what type of government it should have. Even once an outline for this system of government was decided upon it had to be approved by the people of the states. Having just gone through a long bloody war to free themselves from a tyrant, it was an uphill battle to convince many of the people that this new system of government would not erode the authority of the states, and infringe upon the rights of the people.

So, let me rephrase my initial question. Do you think it is possible for a group, be it a nation, or simply a group of men, who oppose our system, to overthrow, or at least gain control of our system of government without the people realizing what has happened?

I say it not only is possible, but it has already happened. I say our system of representative government has been taken over by a group whose ideology and intent is to turn us from freemen into slaves. I honestly don’t know if there is anything that can be done to reverse the damage that has been done. My sole intent is to explain how, at least how I believe, it happened.

Our nation’s Founding Fathers realized that for our system to work the people must be educated as to how the system was supposed to function, and then keep a close eye on the affairs of their government so as to be able to halt any usurpations of power by their elected representatives. Noah Webster, whose name graces a majority of the dictionaries in America, once said, “Every child in America should be acquainted with his own country. He should read books that furnish him with ideas that will be useful to him in life and practice. As soon as he opens his lips, he should rehearse the history of his own country.

Therefore, if you want to take over a country without the people realizing that you have done so, one of the first steps you must take is to stop teaching the youth about the history of their country and either eliminate, or alter their knowledge regarding how their system of government is supposed to function.

Thomas Jefferson once said that “It is the duty of every good citizen to use all the opportunities which occur to him, for preserving documents relating to the history of our country.” From my own personal experience, over the course of my lifetime I have seen how history has been revised and how the amount of information taught to our children regarding our system of government has been drastically reduced.

I don’t recall ever hearing about the Federalist Papers when I was going to school, and I damned sure never heard of John Locke or Joseph Story, all of which are essential reading if one is to understand the very basis of our system of government and the liberty it was designed to preserve.

So, if you can eliminate, or revise to fit your agenda, the information our children are taught about their country and their government, you are well on the way to having generations of adults who will believe that there are no limits to the power and authority their government possesses, and that its function is to do things to take care of them. Were they taught the truth, they would realize that this was not what our Founders envisioned when they drafted our Constitution.
Next any attempt to overthrow, or gain control of a nation must also contain the ability to control what news and information is available to the public. James Madison once said that “A popular government without popular information or the means of acquiring it, is but a prologue to a farce, or a tragedy, or perhaps both.

If you can limit the news the people get regarding the actions of their government, or at least provide them with a biased view of the news, then you are well on your way to controlling their thoughts and emotions.

In 1917 a United States Congressman stood before the House of Representatives and told them that this is exactly what happened. Oscar Calloway stood before the House and said, “ In March, 1915, the J.P. Morgan interests, the steel, shipbuilding, and powder interests, and their subsidiary organizations, got together 12 men high up in the newspaper world and employed them to select the most influential newspapers in the United States, and a sufficient number of them, to control generally the policy of the daily press….They found it was only necessary to purchase the control of 25 of the greatest papers.

An agreement was reached; the policy of the papers was bought, to be paid for by the month; an editor was furnished for each paper, to properly supervise and edit information regarding the questions of preparedness, militarism, financial policies, and other things of national and international nature, considered vital to the interests of the purchasers.

The news you watch on TV is not the full story, it is not the truth, it is what the networks decide you are going to be told so as to mold your opinions in the manner that best suits the corporate entities that own them. This is true whether you watch a network news channel, or a cable news channel such as FOX or CNN.

Richard Salent, former president of CBS News once said, “Our job is to give the people not what they want, but what we decide they ought to have.” Then Richard M. Cohen, a former senior producer for CBS said, “We are going to impose our agenda on the coverage by dealing with issues and subjects that we choose to deal with.

Right there, with those two steps, the controlling of what you are taught, and the management of what information you are given, you already have a nation whose population is, for the most part, uninformed, or at least misinformed. Unless people decide to do some research on their own, study the documents relating to the founding of our country, and then study what laws their government is passing, they are putty in the hands of those that wish to manipulate their beliefs and control their actions. As Daniel Webster said, “Our destruction, should it come at all, will be from another quarter. From the inattention of the people to the concerns of their government.

And that leads me to the next step for assuming control of our nation. If you look back at our nation’s history you will see that the further back you go, the less the people had time to seek entertainment, or self-gratification. It wasn’t until the 1900’s that the means of entertainment that we know today came to the forefront.

After the Civil War the first baseball games were played in the United States, but it wasn’t until the 1920’s that major league baseball grew into such a draw for fans. It was around the same time that the NFL came into existence. So for almost 130 years the people of this country had no professional sports to which they could focus their attention on. It was also during this time frame that the first radios began making their appearance in homes. I remember my father telling me stories about how, during the Depression, families would gather together around the radio and listen to the news or old style radio dramas.

Then in 1928 everything changed with the first ever broadcast on television. Now people could sit in front of an electronic device and both see and hear the action. Since then we have seen the advent of around the clock programming and cable channels providing hundreds of choices for viewers. I distinctly remember as a child when TV stations would ‘go off the air’ at night because their simply wasn’t enough programming to run all night long. Now you can turn on your TV at any time of the day and find something to keep you ‘entertained.’

Have you ever noticed the affect TV has on people? Do you see how they become glued to it? You ever see how they often get annoyed when you interrupt  them while they are watching it? You think that something so powerful could not be used to keep people from focusing on things of much greater importance than a sitcom or a reality TV show? Not only that, you have the power that TV exerts over people, but you have their ability to watch their favorite sporting events, not only watch, but record one, while watching another one. Is it any wonder people have no desire to crack open a book and actually learn something that might prove useful?

Another important step one must take if they should desire to take over this country is that they must keep the people divided. Give them something to fight over, and they will be too busy arguing amongst themselves to even notice that their government is being infiltrated and manipulated. It doesn’t matter if you keep them fighting over political party loyalty; Republican versus Democrat, or if you keep them fighting over issues like abortion, gay rights, or the legalization of marijuana, you just need to give them something to keep them divided and they will not unite against you while you assume control of their country.

Next, and I already know this is going to upset some of my readers, you must allow the emigration of peoples whose ideologies are radically different from those which form the basis of our system of government. If you can dilute the percentage of people who adhere to certain codes of ethics and morality then you will have gone a long way to further dividing the people and any hope they may have of uniting together against your plans.

You must also foster a sense of entitlement among the people. Whether it be based upon some perceived wrong, as in the idea of reparations for slavery, or just the concept that society owes you a place to live and a means of sustenance, you will have created a populace which is dependent upon government for, if not all, at least a portion of their needs. This will make it hard for a people to stand up against their government when, in so doing, it may mean that the checks might stop coming and they find themselves unable to provide food for their family or pay their bills.

You must also cause people to believe that there is nothing good about being thrifty, about saving their money for a rainy day. Debt is a powerful tool to control a people, not only individual debt, but government debt as well. Keep them indebted to you and they will not bite the hand that feeds them.

Even though you have now limited their knowledge, their access to information, and have kept them entertained, they may still often wonder why things aren’t going as good as they used to. So you must instill in them the idea that they must sacrifice something for the common good. And there is no way better to do this than by playing to their national pride and patriotism. Give them a common enemy that they can all come together as a nation to fight, and they will willingly accept hardship and give up their most sacred rights.

Had we not been attacked on 9/11 do you think that the people of this country would have stood for the Patriot Act, NDAA, the growth and expansion of Homeland Security and the TSA? I think not. But if you repeat over and over again, (through the kind assistance of the media you control) the fact that they are under constant threat from some unseen enemy, then you can do almost anything to their rights and liberty and they will accept it like a herd of sheep.

Then you must limit the means by which they could resist you if your plan ever became known to them. Take away their means of fighting back and you will have total control over them. Although many of these shootings we are told about almost daily now may not be orchestrated to assist the government in passing further restrictions upon our right to keep and bear arms, they may as well have been as they are very effective in stirring up anti-gun sentiment amongst those who do not understand the true purpose for which our Founders included the Second Amendment in the Bill of Rights. It was not to target shoot, to hunt, or to protect our homes. It was so that we could stand up against tyranny in our government. As Patrick Henry so eloquently stated, “O sir, we should have fine times indeed, if, to punish tyrants, it were only sufficient to assemble the people! Your arms, wherewith you could defend yourselves, are gone…Did you ever read of any revolution in a nation…inflicted by those who had no power at all?

And this ties in directly to the next step. If you want to assume control of a country you must build up a force capable of imposing your will, or the laws you enact to subdue the people. Just take a look at the various government agencies who are almost fully militarized now. Look at how the local police are armed and how they no longer serve and protect but monitor and control. This is a standing army of ‘law enforcement’ officers ready and able to squash any resistance to the oppression being inflicted upon the people by their government.

Tie this to the previous point and you have exactly what Noah Webster warned, “Before a standing army can rule the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops than can be, on any pretence, raised in the United States.”

So far most of what has been addressed has been directed as to how you can control the people. You must also control their government sufficiently so that it will do your bidding. That is easy enough when you control the vast amounts of money that are required to run a political campaign. If you can inundate the party machinations on both side with funds then they will be more pliable to your will and more likely to pass laws which benefit you, regardless of whether they actually do the people any good.

But this may not be enough. You must infiltrate all levels of government with agents who are agreeable to your agenda so that they may influence policy and, without whose approval, laws cannot be enacted. This is where groups like the Council on Foreign Relations, (the CFR), comes into play. If you look at their membership roster you will see that they have members, not only in all levels of government, but in the media and in academia as well. It is they who sit behind the scenes and dictate policy, guide and manipulate what we are taught in school and what news we are provided. They are the intermediaries between the real power brokers who have patiently sat back while their plan unfolded.

Now maybe this quote by David Rockefeller will make a bit more sense to you, “We are grateful to the Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.

Finally, even though you have planned this down to the minutest of details, you must not leave the people without hope. You must give them the illusion that they still have some say in the people they elect and the direction their country is taking.

This is EXACTLY what we have now, especially when the people continue to believe in the two party paradigm. As long as they continue to believe that only by choosing between a Republican or a Democrat, you will have them believing that their vote makes a difference, when in reality all the candidates on either side are carefully vetted by their respective party, (which you control), and will not deviate from your agenda.

This is what Carroll Quigley meant when he said, “The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to the doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can “throw the rascals out” at any election without leading to any profound or extreme shifts in policy.”
That’s all it will take to take over a nation which was founded on the principle of liberty, to a nation of debt slaves who have absolutely no idea that you have just taken over their country.
Now, after this has sunk in, does ANY OF IT sound familiar to you? If so, you should be very worried at this point in time. But then again, I’m probably interrupting your favorite TV show…aren’t I?

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

It is impossible to deny what Neal has written above, and the reader should contemplate it often. We as a country must admit to our mistakes and rise up with conviction and courage as our forefathers did to provide a free life for those who follow us. The alternative is to become absolute slaves, fearful of the next day, and live with the knowledge there is no way out. The man who adheres to false patriotism and refuses to fight is a cowardly fool. The enemy is not our country; the enemy is the bankers owned government we live under. Only a clean sweep will give us a chance to reorganize our government, and hopefully, it will be a peaceful sweep. Every single politician must be disgraced and removed from office, including State governments! Every one of them knows what is going on, and if not, they’re too stupid to be our leaders.
