There’s no way in hell we’re making it to Nov 2012

October 17th, 2011 by

 

Here is an intellectually honest trader who was interviewed this morning by the BBC. As much as you may not want to believe it, what this guy says is correct. This iteration of human civilization is approaching an end.

 Here is a piece from ZeroHedge.com  that hopefully will make you all understand, once and for all,  that this is not the 1930's, and that there is absolutely no way in hell that this Republic, or any other country, is going to make it to November 2012. HERE IT IS.

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/five-banks-account-96-250-trillion-outstanding-derivative-exposure-morgan-stanley-sitting-fx-de

 

Summary:

The five largest banks in the U.S. (JP Morgan Chase, Citibank, Bank of America, Goldman Sachs and HSBC) are carrying $238 TRILLION dollars in derivative exposure. JP Morgan alone is carrying $78 TRILLION in derivative exposure BY ITSELF.

Okay, what the hell is derivative exposure? What this is referring to are over-the-counter non-exchange traded forward delivery (or "futures") contracts of various kinds. I am a futures broker, but I only execute futures contracts on the futures exchanges, namely the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and the New York Mercantile Exchange.

About ten years ago a new "novelty" emerged in the futures business – the so-called "over-the-counter" contracts. There was a kid in the office I worked in who got wind of this and had all kinds of stars in his eyes about making a killing off of these "OTC" contracts because the brokers' commissions were not a flat fee but a percent of the contract value. Here's the problem with OTC contracts: there is no exchange standing between the buyer and seller as a guarantor.

In my business, when a customer executes a trade on a futures or options contract, it makes no difference who the other guy is on the other side of the trade, be it executed electronically or in the pit. None of us have to worry for a second about the counterparty on our executions because the EXCHANGE ITSELF stands between ALL transactions as the ultimate guarantor. The exchange then enforces the financial requirement rules with the Clearing Houses, the Clearing Houses enforce the financial requirement rules with the brokers, and the brokers enforce the financial requirement rules with the customers. That is the chain of financial responsibility. So, even if a customer bugs out and fails to financially perform on a contract, the contract WILL BE MADE GOOD by extracting the money from the broker, then the Clearing House and finally the Exchange. This massive enforcement buffering is what gives the system integrity.

OTC contracts have no exchange. They are a flipping free-for-all. If someone bugs out on a contract, the poop hits the fan. The counterparty has their pants around their ankles and the broker is caught in the middle. That's why when that kid in my office years ago got all starry-eyed, I thought to myself, "I wouldn't do that OTC crap if you put a gun to my head – no matter what the commissions were. It would be Russian Roulette. Eventually someone would default and it would financially destroy the broker instantly, and perhaps the counterparty as well."

Let's take my business – cattle futures. One contract is 40,000 pounds of live cattle. The spot contract settled at $119.725 per hundred pounds today. So, 40,000 pounds X $1.19725 (shift the decimal) = $47,890 total value of the contract. Since this is an exchange traded instrument, the customer doesn't really don't have to worry about default and can go ahead and book that $47,890 today, and it will be offset at a later time, and the net of the entry and exit will be the P&L. The contract isn't going to default, so the derivative exposure is limited.

Okay. These banks are carrying these OTC futures contracts with NO exchange to guarantee anything. And they are carrying these contracts largely WITH EACH OTHER. So JP Morgan might be the long and Goldman Sachs, or some insolvent bank in Europe is the short on the other side. If these banks default, which is now a mathematical certainty because they are not only insolvent, but insolvent multiple times over and there isn't enough money in the world to bail them out, there is going to be a cascading default on all of these OTC contracts.

Now look at the value and exposure of these OTC derivatives again: the top 5 banks in the US alone have exposure of $238 TRILLION dollars.
The total GDP of the United States is $14.5 Trillion.
The total GDP of China is $6 Trillion.
The total land mass on earth is 36.8 billion acres. If every acre of land on earth was "sold" for $6467 per acre, that would total $238 Trillion.
JP Morgan BY ITSELF has derivative exposure equal to over FIVE TIMES the value of the entire US GDP.

And no, there will not be a 1:1 offsetting in a collapse, because the collapse will be asymmetrical, and the bankrupt party will first pursue FULL payment on its "longs" (think of these as accounts receivables) while its "shorts" (accounts payable) will only pay out 20 cents on the dollar OR LESS. In other words, these entities will tear each other apart in a mad dogfight and this dogfight will take the entire world down with it.

TWO HUNDRED AND THIRTY-EIGHT TRILLION DOLLARS.
AND THAT IS JUST FIVE BANKS.
AND THE MASSIVELY CORRUPT AND INCOMPETENT SECURITIES REGULATORS, BOTH GOVERNMENTAL AND PRIVATE, SAT BY AND WATCHED THIS HAPPEN.

That is what happens when you let a group of criminals run a bureaucracy of affirmative action hires to "audit" the financial industry. Scroll down and read my post titled "There Must Be A Reckoning."

It's over. There is no coming back from this. The only thing that can happen is a total and complete collapse of EVERYTHING we now know, and humanity starts from scratch. And if you think that this collapse is going to play out without one hell of a big hot war, you are sadly, sadly mistaken.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

For those of you that cannot add two plus two, the first step in the take over of global banking is the destruction of the existing system. If one plans to monopolize all money transactions in order to control the movement of all currency, and has the ability to print whatever amount they want in circulation, then the first order of business is to self-destruct. Before this is over the whole world will be begging the IMF (International Monetary Fund) to bail the world out with a new global currency.
 

"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their money, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."
Thomas Jefferson

 

T.J. was thinking too small back then, as the big boys had much bigger plans! NO ONE ever considered the Banksters could do this on a global scale simultaneously. All the dominions are now waiting for the first fall.

 

OUR LAST HURRAH IS TO ROUND THEM ALL UP AND NATIONALIZE THEIR ENTIRE ASSETS.

GLOBAL BANKRUPTCY

 

 

Protesting Banksters, Foreclosure, and The Mark Of Cain

October 13th, 2011 by

Oct. 13, 2011

The Occupy Wall Street protests are enduring and anti-bankster demonstrations are now growing in dozens of other cities across America. Confrontations are erupting and the big corporate media refuses to report many events and messages blasting the corporatists. But some events simply cannot be ignored, like the marchers blockading the Brooklyn Bridge or picketing billionaires’ homes in Manhattan. Clouds of confusion roil around them.
 
The ruling cabal is desperate to turn the our public opinion to support big banks and the forced collectivist agenda Obama is selling so duplicitously with his touted Tax the Rich rhetoric. There are two sides to every battle, and Satan loves to confuse skirmish lines. Truth is the first casualty in war. Beware the roiling revolutionary clouds of chaos and understand that foreclosure is the path for progressive socialism. The United Nations, in it’s Agenda 21, openly calls for the ELIMINATION OF ALL PRIVATE PROPERTY!
 
While I am wary of the leftist instigators obvious in these protests, I also know that all of us in the working classes, including the unemployed, disabled, and retired, have good reason to protest, regardless of being labeled Left, Right, or Centrist. The elitists have been pitting the middle classes against the lower ones, blacks against whites against hispanics, etc., to draw attention away from the billionaires’ oppressive regimens. We are admonished against class warfare, but as billionaire Warren Buffet remarked on class warfare, “My side is winning.“ Too many calling themselves middle class are actually lower class types baited to use easy credit to purchase a lifestyle bankrupting them. Let us focus our wrath on the “Captains of Industry” that send hordes of lobbyists and lawyers to Capitol Hill to push their crafty legislation and impose “the best Congress money can buy”. Let’s prosecute greedy bankers who are printing their own money, Federal Reserve Notes, to fraudulently trap us in perpetual debt, and collect multi-million dollar bonuses even upon disastrous balance sheets that are often so fudged over the big brokerage houses and banks don‘t even know what their actual assets are!
 
Democrat icon Franklin Delano Roosevelt once remarked, “Some of my best friends are communists.” In 1933 he also declared “The Federal Reserve Banks are one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever seen.” Our friend, Sartre, has a scholarly article entitled “Federal Reserve is a cache of Stolen Assets”, found at his website currently seen at www.batr.org/totalitariancollectivism/100911.html .
 
How much longer we will be content to be entranced by “infotainment” alerting us to the latest violation of one or more ethics, constitutional or statutory law, our rights, liberties, pockets, and even our bodies? How much longer will we see major criminals be excused as “too big to fail”, or shielded by “Executive Privilege”? When will we, like our angry ancestors in 1776, decide “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!” and rise up with clenched fists and fight back to secede from and starve the ungodly tyranny eating out our substance?
 
Where is Spartacus? Why do we not stand with him in a slave revolt?
 
We are goaded with Obama’s carrot of “TAX THE RICH”, but if we chase this, we will actually see the successful middle class sorts that have truly worked for a few million dollars getting the big stick, not the billionaires. It would just be yet another case of “bait and switch”. Many upper middle class sorts are truly our friends for freedom who, like the Von Trapp family in The Sound of Music, detest the fascist agenda. The devalued dollar has often conferred “Millionaire” status upon the professional middle class types due to our loss of over 97% of the dollar’s purchasing power since the Federal Reserve Bank charter was granted in 1913. It’s usury, or interest, on the public debt has imposed this devaluation, inflation. Having a million bucks ain’t what it used to be, and shouldn’t be cause for Uncle Sam’s “redistribution of wealth.” Obama’s plan may actually slap the billionaires’ hands (with a wink from them), but it will destroy the upper middle class.
 
Do recall Communism demands the elimination of the middle class. Vladimir Lenin said “The establishment of a central bank is 90% of communizing a nation.” Karl Marx, well funded by bankster Nathan Rothschild, in the Fifth Plank of his Communist Manifesto, advocated “The centralization of wealth in the hands of the state by means of a national bank with an exclusive monopoly.” Usury is the name of the game, plutocrat capitalists impoverishing all working class people with socialist burdens. Bank foreclosure is how the corporatist collective progresses toward a statist New World Order of total control.
 
That old kindergarten game of “musical chairs” is analogous to the banksters’ theft plan. The game began with all players having a seat when the teacher played the music, and when the prancing music stopped, everyone would take a chair. But before the music stopped, the teacher removed a chair and someone would be out of the game. This would be repeated until all the chairs had been seized by the teacher and all the children were left without a seat. The Federal Reserve progressively seizes our “seats”, our real estate and real goods, by means of controlling the supply of currency to cause bankruptcies each year when we must face the music. The government receives a big loan from the Federal Reserve Bank, which then orders the US Treasury to print Federal Reserve Notes to be put into circulation. But the central bank monopoly does not print the currency to pay the interest on the “money” printed, meaning that each year some people MUST come up short and face bankruptcy, foreclosure, unemployment, hunger, and homelessness. The debt grows each tax year, and the banks will end up owning everything we once had. Of course, so many unemployed “useless eaters”, makes population reduction an issue.
 
The billionaires, who acquire capital bankrolling socialism, will not complain if they pay a few more million to consolidate their control over the globe as they jet between various corporate board rooms. After all, the central banks are never audited, and they just print the money, or add a few more zeros in a ledger on their computers. Such as George Soros and Maurice Strong are constantly scheming to assert their evil regimes everywhere. They ply government agencies, fund non-government organizations, bankroll provocateurs to orchestrate big public protests to give their corporatist schemes a widely televised patina of democratic legitimacy, or even initiate riots to discredit peaceful demonstrators. Our messages are often stifled, and all our freedoms are being circled up in a closing noose. Even in our homes, “full spectrum surveillance” monitors our every move. Infiltrators subvert our organizations and troll our websites, pretending to represent our interests.
Expect more corporate bankruptcies and mergers as consolidation continues to see small fish swallowed by big fish, or simply left to die high and dry. Bankruptcies on Main Street make a bonanza for Wall Street bankers picking up our pieces for their corporate empires at pennies on the dollar, leaving us destitute, unemployed, and homeless. Obama and Boehner’s “Super Committee” coup has usurped Congress in hijacking the purse strings of the government, imposing taxation without representation. But football games and “American Idol” get much more attention, don’t they?
 
We have been tempted and defrauded to exchange real goods and real estate for worthless paper. Now the paper is being burned by the banksters, who each, like Al Capone, wanted to be seen as a “legitimate businessman”. We are being liquidated! Recall how former New York Stock Exchange CEO Bernard Madoff was tried and convicted without any court testimony… because he could spill the beans on larger ponzi schemes and outright thefts on Wall Street? Phonetically, Goldman Sachs (Gold Man Sacks) is an appropriate name! Is this the “Golden Rule” Christ spoke of? Of course not! It is time for a jubilee of debt repudiation… the jubilee noted in that verse from Leviticus 25:10, partly inscribed on the Liberty Bell. America’s Spirit of ‘76 railed against the Bank of England’s usury. As long ago as 1694, the Bank of England’s charter declared “The bank hath benefit on the interest on all monies which it creates out of nothing.” A British banker paid Marx to set in motion a plan for the theft of the whole planet. Nathan Rothschild’s checks issued to Marx are in the British Museum. Rothschild also had Marxists in Abraham Lincoln’s administration, financed both the North and the South in the War of Northern Aggression that ended the republic of American states. We are deemed to be chattel under the 14th Amendment. The Bank of England is a major shareholder in the Federal Reserve Bank.
 
Of course, media darling Herman Cain, the GOP counter to Obama’s race card, says it is our fault, that the unemployed, the poor and homeless, are too lazy and inept, and full of class envy. Cain was chairman of the Kansas City branch of the Federal Reserve Bank, a fact which the corporate media glosses over. Cain’s primary purpose is to foil Ron Paul’s drive to “END THE FED”, without confronting or acknowledging Paul directly and boost Paul’s status as a GOP candidate for POTUS. Cain wants Paul to fade from voters’ view quickly. Cain shills for the “coin of the realm”, a coin by which we pay tribute to “Heads” of capitalism, and end up paying our “Tails” to a corrupt international socialist empire. It is a two-sided monetary version of the Hegelian Dialectic Marx and Lenin promoted, a plan to rob us all and discard us as “useless eaters” with “population control“!
 
The talking heads on TV say precious little about how the big fat cats exported American industries to slave-labor markets overseas with NAFTA & GATT, leaving us with no jobs and tens of thousands of vacated industrial and commercial buildings. We are excoriated as racist for even mentioning we are being over-run with tens of millions of illegal aliens competing for our scarce jobs and sucking up billions of tax dollars in preferential social service programs. Even creating a casual labor job for yourself is nigh impossible when nobody has any money for other than the barest of necessities.
 
Cain’s buddies make it impossible to “work hard and get ahead”, or even keep what you have. The work ethic is based on earning your keep, gainful employment. When payment for working is neither gainful nor sufficient for keeping the household, when initiative is punished and the fruits of labor stolen, the working class is reduced to angry slave status. This is the Federal Reserve’s management agenda, and blacks like Obama and Cain are chosen to lead us into slavery much like the British used blacks in rounding up African slave labor to ship abroad. Uncle Tom is alive and well in the land of diversity and multiculturalism. Socialism is slavery and leads to death and destruction, deliberately.
 
What about the regulatory war on independent sorts like family farmers and ranchers, homesteaders, prospectors, commercial fishermen, truckers, and the self-employed? Or Obamacare’s planned wage-rape of the medical professions? Why are small businesses being crushed with burdens? Why has the EPA declared that hay is a pollutant farmers must contain in special facilities? Why has a federal judge in Wisconsin ruled we have no right to produce or choose the foods we consume? What does Cain say about such issues?
 
Bankers want low-wage workers, want us “unwashed masses” to be desperate, fearful, cold and hungry, looking to drive us against each other with their meager carrots and big sticks while they speak politely in professional doublespeak. They certainly don’t want us having discretionary funds for political activities, competing investments, or the means to find a life independent of them. They want the desperately poor and homeless obviously miserable, presenting them as an odious example to drive the public scramble to remain employed and financially solvent. Comfort or complacency in poverty would not serve their purpose, and suffering is mandatory in the system of carrots and sticks, as Orwell outlined in his book, 1984. Suffering enforces control and is evidence of repression.
 
International bankers, like Rothschild and Rockefeller, financed Lenin, Hitler, Stalin, Mao, and Castro, and continue bankrolling socialist coups. Socialism is nothing but the process of foreclosure, be it quick and bloody or “progressive” and “legal”, used to seize assets, or acquire capital, as state or corporate possession of all property is their published goal. Fascist “public/private partnerships” are divesting us of our rights and opportunities in a giant fraud wherein corporate losses and liabilities are socialized upon the public, and profits and privileges are amassed by the oligarchs, the “Captains of Industry” at the helm of a total global tyranny over all peoples, places, and things. Fascism is fraud writ large, and it will progress to communism’s blatant theft, slavery, and murder. You might consider that the nations being attacked by the American military and NATO forces are those who have independent banking systems not giving tribute to Wall Street or “The Crown” banks in London. Are you fooled?
 
Oligarchs have fooled much of the public by bifurcating the knowledge, understanding, of what is widely promoted as Capitalism. To wit:
1. To the common man, it means open competition in a free market where those who produce better products and services, or deliver comparable goods and services more efficiently at lower prices, will prevail by pleasing their customers. This competition in the marketplace spurs innovation and human progress meeting our needs and desires with honest labor and ingenuity, improving our standards of living. This is healthy for society.
2. To the elite billionaires and trillionaires like the Rothschilds, Windsors, Rockefellers, Gates, Buffet, Soros, etc., free market capitalism is tolerated merely as a test bed where laboring people bear the costs to research, test, and deliver more efficient products and services, including the sciences and technologies forging new tools the elite may choose to control, provide or deny us. They only promote competition in the marketplace to the point when the most efficient means is determined, and then the elite will incorporate it in a monopoly to gain capital for their profit, our loss. Vulture Capitalism forecloses upon our liberties and livelihood, and compels our exchange of real goods and real estate for the debt instruments known as currency, seizes the fruits of our labor with increasing usury, taxation, and fees, binding us in the regulatory slavery of socialist red tape.
 
How often have you heard a business man say “Never invest your own money, invest the other people’s money.“ Brokers always collect on every transaction, whether stocks go up or down, win or lose. They split the profits and leave little guys with the losses as they guard the “whales” in those Wall Street Casinos. Often we see an illusion of gain in the stock markets, when the activity is merely the elite shifting their money from one pocket to another to bait the “little people” into buying into a moribund situation, wherein the sheep get sheared. Our gains are temporary, theirs are permanent, in that socialist political dance where they lead us two steps forward and one step back just to give us the hope of advancing when we are forced to relinquish ground. Walter Burien, a former Wall Street broker who felt his conscience calling, has exposed the fraud at www.cafr1.com for us.
 
In frightening us with the specter of Marx’s Communism, we are diverted to what Bill Clinton called “The Third Way”, the Fascist or Corporatist model of Socialism. It really makes no difference whether the socialist regime is hard-core Soviet style state ownership of all property, or the Nazi style of corporatism pretending to be Capitalism we currently suffer. The elite are large in charge in either case, controlling all assets and setting all government agendas, oppressing all people in the Darwinian view that we humans are merely livestock for their amoral use. See that the Communist Manifesto, the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, and even the Jewish Talmud all promote this evil philosophy. Even if you want to dismiss these treatises as dubious “conspiracy” fodder, you should admit the processes they outline are in progress before our eyes. Lenin was a Jew, and David Ben Gurion cut his political teeth in the Bolshevik Revolution before taking his brand of terror to found Israel in 1948. The history of socialism is deeply rooted in an evil cabalistic Jewish culture permeating world financial houses, our movies, media and the academic institutions. Such as Scofield, and now John Hagee, give it great influence over many Christian institutions. It is feudalism in disguise, demanding servitude and fealty to a tyranny worldwide. Israel is used, as Ben Gurion said at it’s founding, “To advance the cause of International Socialism”. Marxist bankers advance shielded by the shrill cries of “anti-Semitism!” deflecting criticisms of modern Pharisees in currency speculation.
 
We must secede to succeed! We must have no king but Jesus! Live free or die trying!

When Confidence Leaves The System It Could All Come Apart
October 12 2011
International Forecaster Weekly

Summary:

Less to live on for retirees, US unaware of austerity, Fed leader Bernanke doesn't see real inflation, expect big changes in November at the polls, on that downgrade of US Treasury debt, the US could default one day, could the world monetary system fall apart?

The investment world hasn’t been too excited about “operation twist.” After its announcement the S&P fell more than 14% and worldwide stocks fell some 23%. Commodities were smashed, and silver fell 28% and gold 12%. During this process short dated yields on Treasuries fell close to zero and maintained, as long-term yields fell. That means granny and grandpa will have less to live on and pensions won’t attain 7.5% return to reach their retirement goals. The result is a Dow yielding 2.8% and S&P 2.2%, while the 10-year T-note yields 1.9%. It is not surprising that fund and money managers are reaching for high yield quality stocks. This they believe will provide yield and safety, while waiting for the next Fed innovation. A situation such as this has not existed for 53 years since I left counter-intelligence.

Due to problems in Europe we have seen funds move into the US dollar and Treasury securities as the euro falls and trembles. Germany and France as a protective procedure are printing up D-marks and francs, like there may not be a euro in the near future. The US federal government has just spent $900 billion unaware that austerity should be the name of the game. The enabling super-Congress is struggling to cut $1.4 trillion from the budget on a long-term basis and has to do so by late November. In the meantime the President wants to increase current spending by $447 billion to supposedly provide jobs. Still in the cards is Mr. Bernanke, who has told us several times that he may have to ease monetary policy further. Real inflation is 11.4%, but evidentially Mr. Bernanke doesn’t see inflation – or so he says. Yet he knows the inflation he has created since he took over from Alan Greenspan, has offset the deflation emanating from the real estate industry, which is still ongoing.

If you give up liberty for safety you are doomed and that is where the US economy is headed. It will provide retarded growth and persistently high and higher unemployment. The quest for safety in US Treasuries will prove to be a deception, as the economy continues its degenerative process and inflation not only negates the returns but also guarantees 10% losses. As an aside, this process allows the Fed and government to stay in control and forces you to play their game. That is why they continually attack gold, silver and commodities. They want to make them as unattractive as possible, as an alternative safe investment. What the Fed and other central banks won’t admit to you is that the foundation of the current monetary system is crumbling and these are last-ditch moves and all the insiders know this. That is why the looting of the system has risen to a new level and these elitists involved could care less that you know what they are doing.

As a result of what has been going on republicans took the House majority last year and almost won the Senate. There is a present undertow among Americans to have an incumbent massacre in November 2012. They have come to realize everything out of Wall Street, banking and Washington is a lie. Even if passed they do not believe the Obama jobs legislation will accomplish anything. Wall Street and banking run the country and own Congress and it is their policies that are destroying the country.

We also believe much of the public understands what the debt extension bill was all about. The dismemberment of Social Security and Medicare and the imposition of the enabling Super Congress has been created so that the President can become dictator, just as Adolph Hitler did. In addition, Republicans put roadblocks in front of legislation so Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid simply changed the rules. This is what our elected representatives think about rules and the US Constitution. They do whatever they like and get away with it.

Then there was the famous S&P downgrade of US Treasury debt. The excuse for that, which should have been done years ago, was that Congress had not cut the budgets for Social Security and Medicare deeply enough and if cuts were not to their liking then they would lower the rating again. S&P said nothing about the cuts in war spending. In spite of these prognostications over the past two months long dated Treasuries have hit new highs, befuddling most investors. It is probably because of the Fed and its market intervention. Most did not expect manipulation to happen so quickly. Looking at the long bull market in Treasuries, what is going to happen when 10-year T-notes are at 1% or 1-1/2%? Will investors hold Treasuries indefinitely at virtually no return? Then again with inflation at 11.4% that cannot be a very prudent investment.

There is no question Treasuries are now truly in a bubble, but it could remain that way for some time to come. The attraction, of course, is perceived safety, but we do not see it that way at all, because we see lots of continuing problems and eventually a collapsing currency. In time a great deal of wealth will be lost in these securities, that is why we recommend gold and silver coins, bullion and shares – they are a far better alternative solution. We believe someday the US will default and finally people will understand what we were talking about. The call is a simple one, just look at the economic and financial wreckage in America and elsewhere. A real estate industry that has been destroyed, both residential and commercial; trillions of dollars in equity destroyed; bond and stock markets that are priced far beyond reason; unemployment refuses to fall and economies held up by quantitative easing and stimulus perhaps forever. QE 3 has been underway since June using $300 billion in securities rollovers plus swaps. In addition we also see a fiscal deficit of $1.6 to $2 trillion this year. As a result of QE and fiscal debt we could see total debt for both rise from $1.5 to $2 trillion.

Government, the Fed, banking and Wall Street do as they please enriching themselves, as many Americans starve and investors make little or nothing. Another added negative feature that few think of is that the Treasury’s giant demand for funds crowds other borrowers out of the market, putting upward pressure on real interest rates. We already have seen low rated sovereigns and junk bond purchases dry up and their yields rise. Bond issuance has also fallen dramatically as well. Rates in the US are also reflective of the financial disaster that is Europe. Mr. Sarkozy and Mrs. Merkel tell us Europe’s problems will be settled by the end of October, yes and pigs have the ability to fly. On that news we get a major stock market rally, the euro rises and the dollar falls.

That is on the suppressed anticipation of the end of the European financial problems. If that will be so, why are heavily officially gold, silver and commodity prices rising? It is because the flight to quality continues in spite of criminal activity by governments and central banks. These governments all lie about their statistics as a justification, as to what they are doing, but they fool few. Investors and professionals know what they are up too. Some governments have been looting domestic pension plans over the last several years and that trend will accelerate. It is only a matter of time before the US government and its purchased Congress goes after America’s private and public pension plans. You had best get out now while you can. There will be no second opportunities. Once trapped by law you will end up with government promises that have no intention of being fulfilled. Such policies will have a negative affect on stock and bond markers, gold, silver and commodities will rise and the negative pressures will force nationalization or failure of major banks and brokerage houses.

As far as we can determine the bottom in gold and silver began to be set two weeks ago, they have moved upward, but not as quickly as we had anticipated. The Working Group on Financial Markets has been attacking gold and silver still, but not with the firepower that they are capable of. It looks like a delaying action in anticipation of further EU problems and forming an opportunity to accumulate long positions. We, via the COT commercial net short position reduction, see the big banks anticipating a strong upward move in both metals. We see such moves in spite of higher margin requirements by the criminal CME, owner of the Comex. Government participation in manipulation of the dollar as well as gold and silver as usual emanate from the Exchange Stabilization Fund a subsidiary of the Treasury. Such antics killed off a move in gold to $2,200 and silver to test $50.00 again temporarily. We should see the major move in both metals shortly and by the end of February could see $3,000 gold and $65 to $75.00. It depends in part on events and the government participation in the market. Again, due to the speed of the downward move all small and medium players were again wiped out, as the banks earned large profits having rigged the results along with the government. Gold and silver will prevail and achieve much higher prices in spite of government and banking interference.

As the yield on the 10-year T-bill returns to 2.16%, due to the rise in the market, which at least for the time being reflects movement of funds back into the market from bonds and we see pressure on a number of currencies – some of which is uncalled for. Oil finally moved back up over $85.00 and copper got back to $3.38. The gains in CDS, credit default swaps, were large and we believe much overdone. Even US corporations’ bonds were hit, which we found overdone. Traders and investors threw the baby out with the bath water because of the failure of Dexia, a top 25-European bank. Dexia will be split into two banks, one good and one bad. The citizens of Belgium and France will absorb the losses in the bad bank. Taking the Dexia situation into context and moves we see by the German government we expect all European counties to separately defend their own banking systems. Those that cannot do that will slip into insolvency.

In between the US and Europe we have England, which we believe is in worse shape than the US and EU. They just executed $116 billion in additional money and credit to keep their financial system afloat. Bank of England governor Mervyn King says, “this is the most serious financial crisis we have seen, at least since the 1930s if not ever.” The media deliberately ignores England’s problems in favor of European and US problems.

The ECB has $53 billion in new funds with which they purchased collateralized bank loans. What we see is more liquidity and more inflation with dubious collateral. Next we will see recapitalization for which the price will be dear. Watchers see unfolding events, but they do not understand the gravity of the situation. It could be that over the next year the entire world financial system could come apart. We know that the central banks know that throwing money and credit at the problems do not work, and it is doomed to failure. They kick the can down the road as long as they can and then we will have war to distract the public. The war will be blamed for everything just as it has been in the past, only this time too many people understand the scam and it is not going to work. Confidence has left the system and that situation is going to worsen. Few jobs are being created as job demand increases by 250,000 month and only a little over 100,000 are being created. The elitists won’t accept the purge but sooner or later it will be forced upon them. If you think massive amounts of money and credit work, look at the results of more than $20 trillion being shoved into the system over the past three years. All it did was keep the system from collapsing. Once the bogus liquidity stops so does the system. These people are not fooling anyone, even the semi-educated public. That is why your only safe haven is gold and silver related assets.

 

 

 

China’s Hard Landing Looms?

Wednesday, October 12, 2011 – by Staff Report

China's debt spree returns to haunt … Bail-outs are coming thick and fast in China. In less than a week the authorities have had to step in to prop up the banks, rescue the insolvent railway system and save the near bankrupt city of Wenzhou from a spectacular debt crash … It is proving harder than expected for the central bank to manage a calibrated "soft-landing" after letting rip with credit to counter the Great Recession … The 30pc annual pace of loan growth is unprecedented in any major country in modern history. It is double the pace of America's housing boom and Japan's Nikkei bubble in the late 1980s. It may match US loan growth in the late 1920s. The Communist Party is now struggling to cope with the fall-out.– UK Telegraph/Ambrose Evans-Pritchard

Dominant Social Theme: China will be OK. It's a capitalist country now and the miracle of the Invisible Hand will guide it through any rough waters.

Free-Market Analysis: Ambrose Evans-Pritchard is back and swinging for the fences. For two years now (we keep track) we've been writing about the Potemkin Village that is China's supposed "free-market" economy and with increasing stridency we've been sounding the alarm about China's impending downfall. Along the way we've been joined by other voices, none much more insightful and influential in our view than Evans-Pritchard.

He has been traveling in China from what we can tell and his tone has turned even more markedly gloomy as a result, or so it seems. We are not surprised. China is not simply the world's worst economic disaster waiting to happen – the disaster apparently is IN THE PROCESS of happening. Only you won't learn that from the mainstream news media, which is determined to keep China's impending liquidation a "secret" for as long as possible. Here's some more from the article:

On Monday, the state investment fund Central Huijin began buying stakes in China's four top banks to restore confidence and halt the slide in share prices. … [Meanwhile] China's finance ministry is quietly intervening to underwrite China's railway system. This behemoth is drowning with $300bn of debts after breakneck expansion, is in arrears on $25bn of debts to its two largest suppliers and has run out of money to pay workers on the Lanzhou-Chonqing rail project.

The ministry has offered a 50pc tax break on railway debt to be auctioned on Wednesday. This is a signal that Beijing will stand behind the system. It is intended to lure back investors following the high-speed rail crash in July. Meanwhile, Beijing is negotiating a $15bn bail-out for the enterprise hub of Wenzhou south of Shanghai, where panic has set off a credit crunch for small business and builders.

China's press has been riveted by tales of debtors hiding in the hills to evade creditors. Roughly 60pc of the region's loans come from non-bank lending beyond control, some of it Ponzi finance. "It's a tight financial network that interweaves lenders and borrowers collectively, often to their mutual benefit and sometimes to their terrible loss," said Caixin Magazine. "If only a few debt-ridden companies collapse, the financial trouble can ripple through the entire credit-connected community. The domino-effect started to endanger the entire system in July."

Every few days or weeks we check the China "scene" to find out what's going on. It never gets any better; it only gets worse from what we can tell. Thirty years ago, the Chinese began to allow farmers and other trades people to sell their wares in open-markets. Eventually, this sort of capitalism spread upwards. Soon people could "own" real estate and build it as well.

But the real control of China's largest industrial entities seemingly never left the Chinese communist party. In fact, there's plenty of evidence that the larger companies – banks, trading firms, utilities and the like – are controlled behind the scenes to give the look and feel of a kind of capitalism that doesn't actually exist.

The model is much the same in other BRIC countries and throughout South America and many developing countries where the elites own everything that matters while individuals hawk cell phones to each other on the street. Competition is fine so long as it doesn't inconvenienc the ruling classes. John D. Rockefeller used to say that "competition is a sin."

Because there never has been any real capitalism at China's top end, the economy after 30 years of "development" is likely woefully distorted. There are all sorts of explanations advanced for the empty cities, malls and skyscrapers throughout China, but the obvious reason is that China's annual "plans" and "goals" call for a certain amount of growth and the cadres will hit that number even if they have to build an empty city to do it.

The cities are beginning to rot now, or so we've read. Soon, probably, skyscrapers shall start to be dangerous to inhabit. The country's vaunted rail system is subject to continual accidents and generally, throughout China, the quality of the country's 30-year-long building boom is suspect.

Those who continually justify China's industrial excesses point out that the country's apparently shoddy workmanship is a good thing. It allows for the Chinese to create new jobs and new work, as the old infrastructure and unused housing crumbles. This is ludicrous, though. It's a repackaging of the broken-window fallacy.

Those who fancy the Chicoms, infinitely nefarious, have taken to muttering that China has appropriated American dollars and knowhow to build a formidable industrial society and a tremendous, modern infrastructure as well. But, in fact, the infrastructure is suspect and the economy is so distorted and controlled by the Chicoms managed boom that people out of desperation are buying – cash down – apartments in empty cities to hold as "investments."

Anyway, you can't really buy real estate in China, only lease it from the government. There's lots you can't do – or say – in China. Meanwhile … the controlled Western intelligentsia has been using the dysfunctional Chinese model to proselytize for more Western economic interference in the private markets.

The idea is that the Chinese have discovered a better way of doing business – using the state to organize private industry. The same ridiculous notions were floated when Japan was going through the boom part of its boom-bust cycle. The Americans helped Japan build out its "Western style" economy and they've helped with China's as well. In Japan's case, things have not ended well. In China's they likely won't either.

The Chicoms, in fact, have had decades to get this right but they made the mistake of installing the kind of faux-capitalism that Western elites implemented and ran for the past century. It didn't work for the West and it seems to have trapped the Chicoms as well.

Increasingly, the assurances of the Chicom leadership are taking on a hollow ring. Increasingly, they seem desperate to find away out. They've probably run out of chances and they know it. The great leap forward starved millions. And later, Tiananmen Square's violence sealed a social compact in which the Chinese leaders and their billion-plus populace traded political agitation for economic development.

But now that economic development seems suspect. As we've pointed out before, a steep recession – or depression – may well spell the end of Chinese communism, or at least inflict upon it a vast reconfiguration, violent or not. Three strikes and yer out.

And so it falls on the Chicoms to engineer a "soft landing." But there will be no such soft landing most likely, (as there never is) and the sound of a hard one could resonate around the world. The Anglosphere power elite that helped engineer the Chinese industrial "miracle" is surely aware of what may loom in China. If one looks at the world scene with a cynical-enough eye, the future seems to become clearer because of it.

China would be the final nail in the coffin; the subsidence of its economy will surely set off a global, rolling depression of significant breadth and depth. Can it be otherwise? And was thisthe  plan all along? Europe is sinking; America is drowning; soon China may join them. 

A modest if nightmarish scenario 

Suddenly, the world's economy is entirely under water – savings savaged; jobs non-existent; even food and water in short supply for some reason. Now the elites make their solutions known … Buttressed by the roiling populist protests of Occupy Wall Street, supported by Julian Assange's transparency meme, the powers-that-be take advantage of the starvation and chaos facing not just the West, but the world.

With all the persuasive force of the controlled media, they will offer the globe's tortured billions the vision of a compassionate and efficient global government. They campaign for direct democracy to ensure world government is both fair and equitable. 

It will become apparent, eventually, that Assange's WikiLeaks model provides the transparency that is necessary to erect a feasible model of global governance. Handsome Assange himself shall assume a high position in world government (a man other men envy and women hope to marry). Finally, the elites will offer up the IMF's SDRs as the new world currency.

Conclusion: Does all this strike you as far-fetched? Heck, we're just speculatin' …

U. S. v. Jones: Where Privacy Technology and the Constitution Collide

October 11th, 2011 by

 

http://www.rutherford.org/articles_db/commentary.asp?record_id=735

By John W. Whitehead
10/10/2011

"The privacy and dignity of our citizens [are] being whittled away by sometimes imperceptible steps. Taken individually, each step may be of little consequence. But when viewed as a whole, there begins to emerge a society quite unlike any we have seen–a society in which government may intrude into the secret regions of a [person's] life."–Justice William O. Douglas

Technology, having outstripped our ability as humans to control it, has become our Frankenstein's monster. Delighted with technology's conveniences, its ability to make our lives easier by performing an endless array of tasks faster and more efficiently, we have given it free rein in our lives, with little thought to the legal or moral ramifications of allowing surveillance technology, especially, to uncover nearly every intimate detail of our lives.

Consider how enthusiastically we welcomed Global Positioning System (GPS) devices, which use orbiting satellites to produce accurate and continuous records of their position and of any person or object carrying the devices, into our lives. We've installed this satellite-based technology in everything from our phones to our cars to our pets. Yet by ensuring that we never get lost, never lose our loved ones and never lose our wireless signals, we have also made it possible for the government to never lose sight of us, as well. 

Indeed, as a case before the U.S. Supreme Court makes clear, the government is taking full advantage of this technology to keep tabs on American citizens, and in the process, is not only violating the Fourth Amendment's prohibition against unreasonable searches and seizures but is putting an end, once and for all, to any expectation of privacy in public places. Thus, what is at stake in United States v. Jones, a case in which police attached a GPS device to a suspect's vehicle and tracked his movements for over a month without a warrant, is nothing less than the continued vitality of the Fourth Amendment in the modern technological age in which we live.

In September 2005, police placed a GPS device on the undercarriage of Antoine Jones' Jeep while it was parked in a public lot in Maryland. They did so, despite the fact that their original warrant had expired and restricted them to tracking Jones' movements in the District of Columbia. Jones, the co-owner of a nightclub in Washington, DC, was suspected of being part of a cocaine-selling operation. Every day–24 hours a day, seven days a week–for four weeks, the police used the GPS device to track Jones' movements and actions. Based upon the detailed information they were able to obtain about Jones' movements–including a trip to a Maryland stash house in which police reportedly found cocaine, crack and $850,000 in cash–on October 24, 2005, police arrested and charged Jones with conspiring to distribute drugs.

Because the search warrant was invalid (having expired and been used outside the Washington, DC city limits), Jones' attorneys asked the trial court to suppress the evidence uncovered, insisting that the police had acted in violation of the Fourth Amendment's protection against unreasonable searches and seizures. The trial court refused, and Jones was convicted and sentenced to life in prison.

On appeal to the DC Court of Appeals, the government defended its actions, arguing that because the evidence uncovered as a result of the GPS device involved Jones' movements while he was on public streets, no violation of his privacy had taken place. The appeals court disagreed, ruling that use of the GPS device to track Jones 24 hours a day for four weeks constituted a search in violation of the Fourth Amendment.

Writing for the three-judge panel, Judge Douglas H. Ginsburg declared:

We hold the whole of a person's movements over the course of a month is not actually exposed to the public because the likelihood a stranger would observe all those movements is not just remote, it is essentially nil. It is one thing for a passerby to observe or even to follow someone during a single journey as he goes to the market or returns home from work. It is another thing entirely for that stranger to pick up the scent again the next day and the day after that, week in and week out, dogging his prey until he has identified all the places, people, amusements, and chores that make up that person's hitherto private routine… A reasonable person does not expect anyone to monitor and retain a record of every time he drives his car, including his origin, route, destination, and each place he stops and how long he stays there; rather, he expects each of those movements to remain disconnected and anonymous.

"Ginsburg rightly recognized the dangers of such a vast, uninhibited use of GPS technology: "A person who knows all of another's travel can deduce whether he is a weekly churchgoer, a heavy drinker, a regular at the gym, an unfaithful husband, an outpatient receiving medical treatment, an associate of particular individuals or political groups — and not just one such fact about a person, but all such facts."

Asked to rehear the case, the full nine-judge panel of the US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit concurred with the three-judge panel's ruling and overturned Jones' conviction. In doing so, the court created a split among the federal courts, namely the Ninth and Seventh Circuits, regarding the warrantless use of tracking devices by police. 

Insisting that GPS devices have become a common tool in crime fighting and that a person traveling on public roads has "no reasonable expectation of privacy" in his movements, the Obama Administration's Department of Justice appealed US v. Jones to the U.S. Supreme Court, which will hear arguments in the case on November 8. The case has generated heated debate regarding where to draw the line when it comes to the collision of privacy, technology, constitutional rights and government surveillance. The arguments on both sides are far-ranging, with law enforcement agencies on one side defending warrantless searches and civil liberties advocates on the other, insisting that if police can stick a GPS on a car, why not on a piece of clothing or everyone's license plate? Among those asking the court to rule against the government's unwarranted use of GPS devices is 90-year-old Roger L. Easton, the principal inventor of the GPS technology.

A study conducted by Roger Clarke, the famed Australian specialist in data surveillance and privacy, indicates that the costs resulting from the erosion of personal privacy are so significant that they essentially threaten the very foundation of a democratic society. Some of the most serious harms include: a prevailing climate of suspicion and adversarial relationships; inequitable application of the law; stultification of originality; weakening of society's moral fiber and cohesion; repressive potential for a totalitarian government; blacklisting; ex-ante discrimination and guilt prediction and inversion of the onus of proof.

The most troubling characteristic of warrantless searches, however, is the extent to which they are capable of serving as the backbone for a totalitarian state. The frightening effects of warrantless surveillance are somewhat blunted insofar as those entrusted with such awesome powers exercise them responsibly; however, establishing secretive, unchecked mechanisms of state monitoring is essentially an invitation to abuse. As every student of American history should be taught, our governmental system of checks and balances was premised on the awareness that trust in the restraint of those in power is not sufficient to protect liberty. Structural restraints and oversights are imperative. If warrantless use of GPS tracking is allowed, an essential structural protection of liberty–judicial oversight–is lost and the privacy of all citizens is threatened.

Moreover, as The Rutherford Institute pointed out in its brief to the Court, among the most significant detrimental effects of covert, warrantless government surveillance is the chilling effect it has on free speech and association and the harm such deprivations of First Amendment rights has on democratic institutions. Indeed, when citizens–especially those espousing unpopular viewpoints–are aware that the intimate details of their personal lives may be pervasively monitored by government, they are less likely to freely express their dissident views.

Obviously, the new era of technology, one that was completely unimaginable to the men who drafted the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, requires an updated legal code to enshrine the right to privacy. The courts, first of all, must interpret the Fourth Amendment protection against unreasonable search and seizure as a check against GPS technology as well as future technologies which threaten privacy. Second, Congress should enact a technological Bill of Rights to protect us from the long arm of the surveillance state.

Recently, Senators Ron Wyden and Mark Udall, who serve on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, suggested that there exists a secret program of spying on American citizens. Concerned about the ability of government agents to track American citizens, specifically with GPS technology, the Senators sent a letter to the Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, asking him if government agents are tracking Americans' movements, and if they are, what authority they have to do so. As Wyden noted, "the law is being secretly interpreted by the executive branch."

Unfortunately, the letter was disregarded by the Obama administration. Kathleen Turner, aide to Director Clapper, refused to answer whether the executive branch believes it has the authority to collect geo-location data or disclose the extent of any such tracking. Matthew Olson, leader of the National Counterterrorism Center, gave a slightly less obfuscatory answer to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence saying, "There are certain circumstances where that authority [to track geo-location data in cell phones] may exist."

Senators Wyden and Chaffetz are undeterred, however, and have introduced another bill that would require police to obtain a warrant and prove probable cause before tracking someone via GPS. Senators Franken and Blumenthal have also sponsored legislation to "require companies to get a user's consent before sharing cell phone location information."

New technologies which enable the radical expansion of police surveillance operations require correspondingly robust legal frameworks in order to maintain the scope of freedom from authoritarian oversight envisioned by the Framers. What the Supreme Court–or Congress–
needs to do is establish a clear rule requiring warrants for GPS monitoring. This would provide needed guidance to law enforcement agencies, quell litigation, protect civil liberties including cherished First Amendment rights, and ensure the viability of the Fourth Amendment even at the dawn of a new age of surveillance technology.

A sea change is coming, but the final outcome is still uncertain. Unless we as citizens educate ourselves and others right now, we face the prospect of unprecedented government surveillance and corporate knowledge of personal information, culminating in the death of the Fourth Amendment and the right to privacy.

The Federal Reserve Cartel: The Eight Families

The Federal Reserve Cartel

The Eight Families

 

The cartel was angry with Schacht, because he had been a left winger (his father worked for Morgan) but he was born in Germany, by accident because his grandmother was sick and his mother went home to be with her. Hjalmar Schacht became the President of the Reichsbank in 1924 (The beginning of the big money actions to ruin Germany's currency). He undertook to save the Mark by himself and then with the help of Hitler. This angered the big banks, because they almost had Germany where they wanted it. They already had Belgium, France, England and the USA. Hjalmar Schacht warned Hitler not to start a war. In his book, "How Democracies Die" he says that the end of democracies have two causes 1. Needles and costly wars 2. Unwillingness to balance the national budget.

I met him briefly in 1962 and read his contemporary works as well as those of his contemporaries. Had he been a Nazi, he would have been tried before the Nuernberg Tribunal, but he was not. Hitler put him in a concentration camp for opposing his Jewish policies and his war. What is shocking is that Hitler was essentially elected by Wallstreet as was FDR. What is even more shocking is that Standard Oil of New Jersey owned the patent for converting coal into gasoline in 1929. Standard Oil then established a fully owned subsidiary Braunkohlbenzine A.G. and Ethyl A.G. for making aviation grade gasoline in 1935. They built three coal to gasoline plants for Germany in 1935. They also shipped 500,000 gallons of aviation fuel to Germany in 1939, just in time for the invasion of Poland and France. I. G. Farben the German cartel which manufactured Prusic Acid (Cyclone B Gas) was American owned. It's major stock holders are Morgan, The Federal Reserve Bank of New York, Ford and General Electric Corporation. It seems that the war was willfully started by Wallstreet. Why?

Anyhow even Napoleon said "I'm not fighting England; I'm fighting the Banks".

The Federal Reserve Cartel:

The Eight Families

by Dean Henderson                         

Global Research

June 1, 2011

(Part one of a four-part series)

The Four Horsemen of Banking (Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup and Wells Fargo) own the Four Horsemen of Oil (Exxon Mobil, Royal Dutch/Shell, BP and Chevron Texaco); in tandem with Deutsche Bank, BNP, Barclays and other European old money behemoths. But their monopoly over the global economy does not end at the edge of the oil patch.

According to company 10K filings to the SEC, the Four Horsemen of Banking are among the top ten stock holders of virtually every Fortune 500 corporation.[1]

So who then are the stockholders in these money centre banks?

This information is guarded much more closely. My queries to bank regulatory agencies regarding stock ownership in the top 25 US bank holding companies were given Freedom of Information Act status, before being denied on “national security” grounds. This is rather ironic, since many of the bank’s stockholders reside in Europe.

One important repository for the wealth of the global oligarchy that owns these bank holding companies is US Trust Corporation – founded in 1853 and now owned by Bank of America. A recent US Trust Corporate Director and Honorary Trustee was Walter Rothschild. Other directors included Daniel Davison of JP Morgan Chase, Richard Tucker of Exxon Mobil, Daniel Roberts of Citigroup and Marshall Schwartz of Morgan Stanley. [2]

J. W. McCallister, an oil industry insider with House of Saud connections, wrote in The Grim Reaper that information he acquired from Saudi bankers cited 80% ownership of the New York Federal Reserve Bank– by far the most powerful Fed branch- by just eight families, four of which reside in the US. They are the Goldman Sachs, Rockefellers, Lehmans and Kuhn Loebs of New York; the Rothschilds of Paris and London; the Warburgs of Hamburg; the Lazards of Paris; and the Israel Moses Seifs of Rome.

CPA Thomas D. Schauf corroborates McCallister’s claims, adding that ten banks control all twelve Federal Reserve Bank branches. He names N.M. Rothschild of London, Rothschild Bank of Berlin, Warburg Bank of Hamburg, Warburg Bank of Amsterdam, Lehman Brothers of New York, Lazard Brothers of Paris, Kuhn Loeb Bank of New York, Israel Moses Seif Bank of Italy, Goldman Sachs of New York and JP Morgan Chase Bank of New York. Schauf lists William Rockefeller, Paul Warburg, Jacob Schiff and James Stillman as individuals who own large shares of the Fed. [3] The Schiffs are insiders at Kuhn Loeb. The Stillmans are Citigroup insiders, who married into the Rockefeller clan at the turn of the century.

Eustace Mullins came to the same conclusions in his book The Secrets of the Federal Reserve, in which he displays charts connecting the Fed and its member banks to the families of Rothschild, Warburg, Rockefeller and the others. [4]

The control that these banking families exert over the global economy cannot be overstated and is quite intentionally shrouded in secrecy. Their corporate media arm is quick to discredit any information exposing this private central banking cartel as “conspiracy theory”. Yet the facts remain.

The House of Morgan

The Federal Reserve Bank was born in 1913, the same year US banking scion J. Pierpont Morgan died and the Rockefeller Foundation was formed. The House of Morgan presided over American finance from the corner of Wall Street and Broad, acting as quasi-US central bank since 1838, when George Peabody founded it in London.

Peabody was a business associate of the Rothschilds. In 1952 Fed researcher Eustace Mullins put forth the supposition that the Morgans were nothing more than Rothschild agents. Mullins wrote that the Rothschilds, “…preferred to operate anonymously in the US behind the facade of J.P. Morgan & Company”. [5]

Author Gabriel Kolko stated, “Morgan’s activities in 1895-1896 in selling US gold bonds in Europe were based on an alliance with the House of Rothschild.” [6]

The Morgan financial octopus wrapped its tentacles quickly around the globe. Morgan Grenfell operated in London. Morgan et Cie ruled Paris. The Rothschild's Lambert cousins set up Drexel & Company in Philadelphia.

The House of Morgan catered to the Astors, DuPonts, Guggenheims, Vanderbilts and Rockefellers. It financed the launch of AT&T, General Motors, General Electric and DuPont. Like the London-based Rothschild and Barings banks, Morgan became part of the power structure in many countries.

By 1890 the House of Morgan was lending to Egypt’s central bank, financing Russian railroads, floating Brazilian provincial government bonds and funding Argentine public works projects. A recession in 1893 enhanced Morgan’s power. That year Morgan saved the US government from a bank panic, forming a syndicate to prop up government reserves with a shipment of $62 million worth of Rothschild gold. [7]

Morgan was the driving force behind Western expansion in the US, financing and controlling West-bound railroads through voting trusts. In 1879 Cornelius Vanderbilt’s Morgan-financed New York Central Railroad gave preferential shipping rates to John D. Rockefeller’s budding Standard Oil monopoly, cementing the Rockefeller/Morgan relationship.

The House of Morgan now fell under Rothschild and Rockefeller family control. A New York Herald headline read, “Railroad Kings Form Gigantic Trust”. J. Pierpont Morgan, who once stated, “Competition is a sin”, now opined gleefully, “Think of it. All competing railroad traffic west of St. Louis placed in the control of about thirty men.”[8]

Morgan and Edward Harriman’s banker Kuhn Loeb held a monopoly over the railroads, while banking dynasties Lehman, Goldman Sachs and Lazard joined the Rockefellers in controlling the US industrial base. [9]

In 1903 Banker’s Trust was set up by the Eight Families. Benjamin Strong of Banker’s Trust was the first Governor of the New York Federal Reserve Bank. The 1913 creation of the Fed fused the power of the Eight Families to the military and diplomatic might of the US government. If their overseas loans went unpaid, the oligarchs could now deploy US Marines to collect the debts. Morgan, Chase and Citibank formed an international lending syndicate.

The House of Morgan was cosy with the British House of Windsor and the Italian House of Savoy. The Kuhn Loebs, Warburgs, Lehmans, Lazards, Israel Moses Seifs and Goldman Sachs also had close ties to European royalty. By 1895 Morgan controlled the flow of gold in and out of the US. The first American wave of mergers was in its infancy and was being promoted by the bankers. In 1897 there were sixty-nine industrial mergers. By 1899 there were twelve-hundred. In 1904 John Moody – founder of Moody’s Investor Services – said it was impossible to talk of Rockefeller and Morgan interests as separate. [10]

Public distrust of the combine spread. Many considered them traitors working for European old money. Rockefeller’s Standard Oil, Andrew Carnegie’s US Steel and Edward Harriman’s railroads were all financed by banker Jacob Schiff at Kuhn Loeb, who worked closely with the European Rothschilds.

Several Western states banned the bankers. Populist preacher William Jennings Bryan was thrice the Democratic nominee for President from 1896 -1908. The central theme of his anti-imperialist campaign was that America was falling into a trap of “financial servitude to British capital”. Teddy Roosevelt defeated Bryan in 1908, but was forced by this spreading populist wildfire to enact the Sherman Anti-Trust Act. He then went after the Standard Oil Trust.

In 1912 the Pujo hearings were held, addressing concentration of power on Wall Street. That same year Mrs. Edward Harriman sold her substantial shares in New York’s Guaranty Trust Bank to J.P. Morgan, creating Morgan Guaranty Trust. Judge Louis Brandeis convinced President Woodrow Wilson to call for an end to interlocking board directorates. In 1914 the Clayton Anti-Trust Act was passed.

Jack Morgan – J. Pierpont’s son and successor – responded by calling on Morgan clients Remington and Winchester to increase arms production. He argued that the US needed to enter WWI. Goaded by the Carnegie Foundation and other oligarchy fronts, Wilson accommodated. As Charles Tansill wrote in America Goes to War, “Even before the clash of arms, the French firm of Rothschild Freres cabled to Morgan & Company in New York suggesting the flotation of a loan of $100 million, a substantial part of which was to be left in the US to pay for French purchases of American goods.”

The House of Morgan financed half the US war effort, while receiving commissions for lining up contractors like GE, Du Pont, US Steel, Kennecott and ASARCO. All were Morgan clients. Morgan also financed the British Boer War in South Africa and the Franco-Prussian War. The 1919 Paris Peace Conference was presided over by Morgan, which led both German and Allied reconstruction efforts. [11]

In the 1930’s populism resurfaced in America after Goldman Sachs, Lehman Bank and others profited from the Crash of 1929. [12] House Banking Committee Chairman Louis McFadden (D-NY) said of the Great Depression, “It was no accident. It was a carefully contrived occurrence…The international bankers sought to bring about a condition of despair here so they might emerge as rulers of us all”.

Sen. Gerald Nye (D-ND) chaired a munitions investigation in 1936. Nye concluded that the House of Morgan had plunged the US into WWI to protect loans and create a booming arms industry. Nye later produced a document titled The Next War, which cynically referred to “the old goddess of democracy trick”, through which Japan could be used to lure the US into WWII.

In 1937 Interior Secretary Harold Ickes warned of the influence of “America’s 60 Families”. Historian Ferdinand Lundberg later penned a book of the exact same title. Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas decried, “Morgan influence…the most pernicious one in industry and finance today.”

Jack Morgan responded by nudging the US towards WWII. Morgan had close relations with the Iwasaki and Dan families – Japan’s two wealthiest clans – who have owned Mitsubishi and Mitsui, respectively, since the companies emerged from 17th Century shogunates. When Japan invaded Manchuria, slaughtering Chinese peasants at Nanking, Morgan downplayed the incident. Morgan also had close relations with Italian fascist Benito Mussolini, while German Nazi Dr. Hjalmer Schacht was a Morgan Bank liaison during WWII. After the war Morgan representatives met with Schacht at the Bank of International Settlements (BIS) in Basel, Switzerland. [13]

The House of Rockefeller

BIS is the most powerful bank in the world, a global central bank for the Eight Families who control the private central banks of almost all Western and developing nations. The first President of BIS was Rockefeller banker Gates McGarrah- an official at Chase Manhattan and the Federal Reserve. McGarrah was the grandfather of former CIA director Richard Helms. The Rockefellers- like the Morgans- had close ties to London. David Icke writes in Children of the Matrix, that the Rockefellers and Morgans were just “gofers” for the European Rothschilds. [14]

BIS is owned by the Federal Reserve, Bank of England, Bank of Italy, Bank of Canada, Swiss National Bank, Nederlandsche Bank, Bundesbank and Bank of France.

Historian Carroll Quigley wrote in his epic book Tragedy and Hope that BIS was part of a plan, “to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole…to be controlled in a feudalistic fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert by secret agreements.”

The US government had a historical distrust of BIS, lobbying unsuccessfully for its demise at the 1944 post-WWII Bretton Woods Conference. Instead the Eight Families’ power was exacerbated, with the Bretton Woods creation of the IMF and the World Bank. The US Federal Reserve only took shares in BIS in September 1994. [15]

BIS holds at least 10% of monetary reserves for at least 80 of the world’s central banks, the IMF and other multilateral institutions. It serves as financial agent for international agreements, collects information on the global economy and serves as lender of last resort to prevent global financial collapse.

BIS promotes an agenda of monopoly capitalist fascism. It gave a bridge loan to Hungary in the 1990’s to ensure privatization of that country’s economy. It served as conduit for Eight Families funding of Adolf Hitler- led by the Warburg's J. Henry Schroeder and Mendelsohn Bank of Amsterdam. Many researchers assert that BIS is at the nadir of global drug money laundering. 

[16] It is no coincidence that BIS is headquartered in Switzerland, favourite hiding place for the wealth of the global aristocracy and headquarters for the P-2 Italian Freemason’s Alpina Lodge and Nazi International. Other institutions which the Eight Families control include the World Economic Forum, the International Monetary Conference and the World Trade Organization.

In 1944 the first World Bank bonds were floated by Morgan Stanley and First Boston. The French Lazard family became more involved in House of Morgan interests. Lazard Freres- France’s biggest investment bank- is owned by the Lazard and David-Weill families- old Genoese banking scions represented by Michelle Davive. A recent Chairman and CEO of Citigroup was Sanford Weill.

In 1968 Morgan Guaranty launched Euro-Clear, a Brussels-based bank clearing system for Eurodollar securities. It was the first such automated endeavour. Some took to calling Euro-Clear “The Beast”. Brussels serves as headquarters for the new European Central Bank and for NATO. In 1973 Morgan officials met secretly in Bermuda to illegally resurrect the old House of Morgan, twenty years before Glass Steagal Act was repealed. Morgan and the Rockefellers provided the financial backing for Merrill Lynch, boosting it into the Big 5 of US investment banking. Merrill is now part of Bank of America.

John D. Rockefeller used his oil wealth to acquire Equitable Trust, which had gobbled up several large banks and corporations by the 1920’s. The Great Depression helped consolidate Rockefeller’s power. His Chase Bank merged with Kuhn Loeb’s Manhattan Bank to form Chase Manhattan, cementing a long-time family relationship. The Kuhn-Loeb’s had financed – along with Rothschilds – Rockefeller's quest to become king of the oil patch. National City Bank of Cleveland provided John D. with the money needed to embark upon his monopolization of the US oil industry. The bank was identified in Congressional hearings as being one of three Rothschild-owned banks in the US during the 1870’s, when Rockefeller first incorporated as Standard Oil of Ohio. [17]

One Rockefeller Standard Oil partner was Edward Harkness, whose family came to control Chemical Bank. Another was James Stillman, whose family controlled Manufacturers Hanover Trust. Both banks have merged under the JP Morgan Chase umbrella. Two of James Stillman’s daughters married two of William Rockefeller’s sons. The two families control a big chunk of Citigroup as well. [18]

In the insurance business, the Rockefellers control Metropolitan Life, Equitable Life, Prudential and New York Life. Rockefeller banks control 25% of all assets of the 50 largest US commercial banks and 30% of all assets of the 50 largest insurance companies. [19] Insurance companies- the first in the US was launched by Freemasons through their Woodman’s of America- play a key role in the Bermuda drug money shuffle.

Companies under Rockefeller control include Exxon Mobil, Chevron Texaco, BP Amoco, Marathon Oil, Freeport McMoran, Quaker Oats, ASARCO, United, Delta, Northwest, ITT, International Harvester, Xerox, Boeing, Westinghouse, Hewlett-Packard, Honeywell, International Paper, Pfizer, Motorola, Monsanto, Union Carbide and General Foods.

The Rockefeller Foundation has close financial ties to both Ford and Carnegie Foundations. Other family philanthropic endeavours include Rockefeller Brothers Fund, Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research, General Education Board, Rockefeller University and the University of Chicago- which churns out a steady stream of far right economists as apologists for international capital, Bretton Woods was a boon to the Eight Families. The IMF and World Bank were including Milton Friedman.

The family owns 30 Rockefeller Plaza, where the national Christmas tree is lighted every year, and Rockefeller Centre. David Rockefeller was instrumental in the construction of the World Trade Centre towers. The main Rockefeller family home is a hulking complex in upstate New York known as Pocantico Hills. They also own a 32-room 5th Avenue duplex in Manhattan, a mansion in Washington, DC, Monte Sacro Ranch in Venezuela, coffee plantations in Ecuador, several farms in Brazil, an estate at Seal Harbour, Maine and resorts in the Caribbean, Hawaii and Puerto Rico. [20]

The Dulles and Rockefeller families are cousins. Allen Dulles created the CIA, assisted the Nazis, covered up the Kennedy hit from his Warren Commission perch and struck a deal with the Muslim Brotherhood to create mind-controlled assassins. [21]

Brother John Foster Dulles presided over the phony Goldman Sachs trusts before the 1929 stock market crash and helped his brother overthrow governments in Iran and Guatemala. Both were Skull & Bones, Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) insiders and 33rd Degree Masons. [22]

The Rockefellers were instrumental in forming the depopulation-oriented Club of Rome at their family estate in Bellagio, Italy. Their Pocantico Hills estate gave birth to the Trilateral Commission. The family is a major funder of the eugenics movement which spawned Hitler, human cloning and the current DNA obsession in US scientific circles.

John Rockefeller Jr. headed the Population Council until his death. [23] His namesake son is a Senator from West Virginia. Brother Winthrop Rockefeller was Lieutenant Governor of Arkansas and remains the most powerful man in that state. In an October 1975 interview with Playboy magazine, Vice-President Nelson Rockefeller- who was also Governor of New York- articulated his family's patronizing worldview, “I am a great believer in planning- economic, social, political, military, total world planning.”

But of all the Rockefeller brothers, it is Trilateral Commission (TC) founder and Chase Manhattan Chairman David who has spearheaded the family’s fascist agenda on a global scale. He defended the Shah of Iran, the South African apartheid regime and the Chilean Pinochet junta. He was the biggest financier of the CFR, the TC and (during the Vietnam War) the Committee for an Effective and Durable Peace in Asia- a contract bonanza for those who made their living off the conflict.

Nixon asked him to be Secretary of Treasury, but Rockefeller declined the job, knowing his power was much greater at the helm of the Chase. Author Gary Allen writes in The Rockefeller File that in 1973, “David Rockefeller met with twenty-seven heads of state, including the rulers of Russia and Red China.”

Following the 1975 Nugan Hand Bank/CIA coup against Australian Prime Minister Gough Whitlam, his British Crown-appointed successor Malcolm Fraser sped to the US, where he met with President Gerald Ford after conferring with David Rockefeller. [24]

John McManus on the John Birch Society What It Stands For and Why Its Been Attacked

October 9th, 2011 by

http://www.thedailybell.com/3056/Anthony-Wile-John-McManus-on-the-John-Birch-Society-What-It-Stands-For-and-Why-Its-Been-Falsely-Attacked

 

Sunday, October 09, 2011 – with Anthony Wile

 

The editors of The Daily Bell are pleased to present an interview with John F. McManus, President of the John Birch Society and publisher of the New American.

Introduction: In 1973, John F. McManus accepted an appointment by Robert Welch, the Society's Founder, as the organization's Director of Public Affairs. He later became its president. In this post, he became and remains the Society's chief media representative throughout the nation. He has appeared on hundreds of radio and television programs. Mr. McManus has written and produced numerous audiovisual programs, including the popular DVD Overview of America, which is a moving tribute about America's US Constitutional roots. He has also written several books including Financial Terrorism (1993), Changing Commands: The Betrayal of America's Military (1995), William F. Buckley, Jr.: Pied Piper for the Establishment (2002), and The Insiders 5th Edition (2004). In addition to being a regular contributor of articles to The New American magazine, he serves as its publisher. He is also publisher of the Society's member-only monthly Bulletin. Mr. McManus was named president of The John Birch Society in 1991. Born in 1935 in Brooklyn, he served on active duty as a lieutenant in the U.S. Marine Corps for three years. For six years before accepting a staff position with the Society, he was employed as an electronics engineer.

Daily Bell: Thanks for your time. Explain what the John Birch Society is. What is its goal? Where did it get its name?

John McManus: The John Birch Educational organization was formed to preserve the American system, limited government under the US Constitution and independence. It got its name from Captain John Birch, a WWII hero who went to China in 1940 as missionary for his faith, and volunteered for service with the American forces when the war broke out. He actually led Colonel Jimmy Doolittle out of China after Doolittle's famous raid over Tokyo early in 1942, and that's when the American forces discovered him. General Claire Chennault, the head of the famous "Flying Tiger" organization in China, asked him to join their forces and to serve as an intelligence officer out of Chaplin. So he did that and for three years he performed excellent work for them. He should have been given the Congressional Medal of Honor, but he didn't get it. He was murdered ten days after the war ended by Chinese Communists. Robert Welch, the man who founded the John Birch Society, found out about John Birch long before the society was formed, and he wrote a book in 1954 about the life of John Birch, a real American hero. So when the time came Robert Welch formed the educational organization that we are here, he asked the parents if he could use their son's name and they happily said yes and became members right away, right from the beginning. So that's how we became the John Birch Society.

Daily Bell: Why is the society disliked by the mainstream press?

John McManus: Actually, there are two reasons why they don't like us, and the first one is they don't like to be shown as deficient and second is they want to be the leaders of those who are informing the American people. John Birch Society is actually a new medium of information in competition with all of these others. What we say is different than what they say about almost every issue and consequently that's why they don't like us. They'll do whatever they can to make us seem like fools or extreme, or whatever nasty adjective they choose to throw around like candy to children, and that's why we are not liked by the mainstream media. We are, however, quite frequently liked by the local media, newspapers, small town newspapers where our members are busy, and gain a lot of influence but I don't expect to be treated fairly by the New York Times or Time Magazine for a good long while.

Daily Bell: Do insiders exist? Who are they?

John McManus: They certainly do exist and when we say insiders, what we are talking about are people who are leaders, who have drive to bring our country into a one world government and establish world tyranny. The society has always been accused of being anti-communist, which is accurate, and when communism in Russia seemed to implode, there were a few people who said, what will the society do now that communism is dead? The John Birch Society was always opposed to any form of totalitarianism and still believes that the communists who lead Russia are no less determined to build world government. They just don't call themselves communists anymore.

Daily Bell: What do they want? World government? Why?

John McManus: Well, they want world government, the United Nations, which predecessor insiders of this conspiracy helped to bring about. You wonder who some of the people are we call insiders? David RockefellerHenry Kissinger,Zbigniew Brzezinski and Peter J. Peterson – that's a good start.

Daily Bell: Will they be successful? Are they speeding things up?

John McManus: I don't think they'll be successful because I think the American people, especially, will wake up some day and begin to turn things around. Are they speeding this up? Yes, I think they are, and I think they are because they know that the John Birch Society's influence is growing remarkably.

Daily Bell: Are you basically optimistic or pessimistic about the state of the world?

John McManus: I am always an optimist. I think there are more good people than bad. What we have to do is organize the good people. I frequently have said that what we have to do is get good people off the couch and get them to do some heavy reading and get them to do some understanding. Then they can start to spread their own influence. What we tell people is, "You have influence; use it! And use it for something worthwhile." It is certainly worthwhile for people to use their influence to help others to triumph over the terrible education they got in our schools, and to realize the worth of the US Constitution and that it is not being adhered to. If the government of the United States would obey the US Constitution its cost would be 20% and its size would be 20%. That's very simple.

Daily Bell: What brought you to the society? Why have you spent your professional life with it?

John McManus: Well, what brought me to the society is interesting. Back in the early 1960's I was already a conservative and a devotee of William F. Buckley and his National Review Magazine. All of a sudden, John Birch Society was in the headlines everywhere. 'Secret fascists and and anti-Semitic organization was formed and people better watch out for it.' Unfortunately, I bought into that, and finally Buckley came out with an editorial in which he said there were a lot of good people at the Birch Society and what they ought to do is get rid of Robert Welch. It made sense to me because they had painted Welch as a screwball.

I actually wrote a letter to Buckley's magazine that was published, congratulating them for their attack on Robert Welch. And because of that I was contacted by a local member of the Birch Society who asked me a simple question: Are you basing your attitude on what Welch has said or on what others have said of him? I thought that was a good question and a challenge to me so I asked him to show me some stuff the society has said and I began a torturous re-evaluation. I ended up joining the Birch Society and then joining the staff. I have been a staff member of the Birch Society since 1966, giving much of my adult life to it. No regrets whatsoever.

Daily Bell: What is the opinion of the people you work with and those who support the society?

John McManus: The overall philosophy is very much in line with Robert Welch's plan. He said there were problems in the world. One of them was communism, another was collectivism, which you could call socialism, and then he talked about the loss of faith and the rise of the amoral man, people who would do anything, put aside all concepts of right and wrong just to promote themselves. He said those three problems are very, very real, they exist, and somebody has to do something to combat it so I am offering myself as a leader. Eventually I discovered this was the real Robert Welch, decided this man is correct and I want to help, so joined the society. Then he asked me to join the staff. We have about 75 employees and the people who work for the society agree.  If they didn't they wouldn't work for us.

Daily Bell: In the past, the society has been controversial. Was Dwight Eisenhower a communist, for instance? Is that still the position of the society?

John McManus: Well, the position of the society was that Dwight Eisenhower helped various communist victories come about here and there. Whether or not he was an actual communist, somebody else can decide that. I don't know; we don't. Robert Welch wrote a 300-page book about Eisenhower and anybody who has read that book doesn't condemn Robert Welch. He ended up saying, "Why didn't somebody else say this?" So the society's position regarding Eisenhower hasn't changed. It is that he helped bring the world closer to a communist world. They didn't succeed, of course, but it is a good example of the kind of thing that is happening and continues to happen.

I have recently written a 40-page booklet called The John Birch Society: Reality Versus Myth. I have gone into all the charges against the society, one of which, of course, is we claimed Eisenhower, that great American, was a communist. Well, we didn't. We certainly pointed out many of the things that he did, including forced repatriation of several million people back to communist slavery, who didn't want to go, many of them committing suicide on trains they were being herded into. We also pointed out the betrayal of the Hungarian revolution in 1956. Robert Welch published the fact that Fidel Castro was a communist six months before he took control of Cuba, and Eisenhower was president at the time. If Robert Welch knew he was a communist, then the government of the United States did, and the president was deficient in telling everybody that he was a great man, this is good for Cuba and so on.

One of the interesting things about Eisenhower is that he choose for his ghost writer of his own book, Crusade in Europe, a man named Joseph Fels Barnes, who was an actual communist. So choosing to have his book written by a communist – you can imagine the flavoring it was given. There is a lot about Eisenhower that should be known and we don't back away from criticizing Eisenhower as we don't back away from criticizing anybody. To simply go around and say the John Birch Society is screwball because they said Eisenhower is a communist is wrong. It's playing people as fools.

Daily Bell: Further to your book about debunking memes and such, it is said that the Rockefeller family purchased Robert Welch's business or was otherwise involved with him, and that the Society is part of a manufactured Hegelian dialectic? Is this just slander from enemies of the Society?

John McManus: Yes, it is. There was a man years ago named Eustace Mullins who wrote a book, which was actually about the dangers of vaccinations and that was the cause that he had taken up. And in that book, for some strange reason, there were a couple of pages saying that Rockefeller had bought Welch's Oxford Candy Company, Rockefeller financed it and whenever Robert Welch needed money he went to the Rockefeller banks and got money from them and so on. It was all completely false; there was not a shred of evidence to back up any of that stuff. It never happened. And over the years I tracked people who had said that, answered questions from a member who was told that by somebody, etc. It is totally ridiculous.

Daily Bell: Give us some background on the society and Robert W. Welch, Jr., who founded it.

John McManus: Robert Welch was born in North Carolina and was considered a gifted child. He was admitted to the University of North Carolina at the age of 12. In the fall of 1919, he enrolled in Harvard Law School to learn the free enterprise system. By 1922, he had had enough of the school and launched the Oxford Candy Company. In 1926, he invented the Sugar Daddy candy and sales skyrocketed. He left the company he worked so hard to build after a dispute with management and started again. Eventually he ended up working for his brother at the James O. Welch Company in 1935 until he "retired" in 1956 to found The John Birch Society in 1958. He guided JBS through its first three decades until his passing in 1985.

Daily Bell: Has the society evolved its views? How so?

John McManus: Have we evolved? No, we haven't. We have always been opposed to any form of totalitarianism. We've always been in favor of the US Constitution and what those serving our country have taken an oath to support and stand by. We might have had changes in tactics and so forth. We used to carry around heavy 16mm film projectors and we went to film strip projectors and now we are into the Internet, so we have kept pace with technology. You could call that a bit of an evolution but as far as ideological evolution, no, none of it.

Daily Bell: What has been its greatest impact? Wasn't Ronald Reagan influenced by Birch views?

John McManus: No, we don't think that Ronald Reagan ever listened to the Birch Society. We've actually put out quite a bit of information showing that the reputation of Reagan as being a tremendous conservative and so forth isn't merited. Our greatest impact is awakening millions of people, letting them know that the instruction they got in the schools they went to was not good, was not accurate, was not helpful. I can even remember my own schooling – whenever it came around to talking about the US Constitution, it was time to fall asleep.

Daily Bell: Do you believe your organization has been the target of assassinations via plane crashes and the like?

John McManus: When Robert Welch stepped aside in early in 1983, the leader at the society became Congressman Larry McDonald from Georgia – a Democrat, by the way. Six months later Larry McDonald was aboard a Korean airliner on its way to South Korea when the plane was attacked by a soviet fighter plane, and he and 268 other passengers on that plane disappeared. I guess we could say that one of our leaders was a victim of a Soviet attack, but the answers were given by our government as to what really happened to that plane and the people aboard it are totally deficient. We believe the plane landed on Sakhalin Island, and what happened to the people after that we don't know. Nobody from the Soviet Union has ever come out and talked about it. So the answer to the question is yes, in that instance, our leader, the man who was at the time the head of the John Birch Society, US Congressman Larry McDonald, was taken out.

Daily Bell: What kind of impact has the society had in terms of expanding freedom in America and in the world?

John McManus: Protecting the system is something that we have done and is still there. We've got correspondents and some members in other parts of the world where the English language is spoken, as we only deal with the English language. I have been to Australia, I've been to Switzerland and my colleagues have been to France and to other countries in Western Europe where a lot of people do speak English. We tell them what we are doing, and there have been attempts to start their own similar Birch Society but they haven't succeeded very well.  We are certainly grateful that they even tried.

Daily Bell: You seem to be having a significant impact in the 2000s. Has the Internet helped?

John McManus: Yes. We were a little slow to adapt to the use of the Internet but we are into it heavy now. You can go to JBS.org website and see quite a selection of any issue you want or purchase books. The Internet has been very helpful but we also caution people not to believe everything they read on the Internet. It's sometimes used as a disinformation organ and that should be watched.

Daily Bell: Is your membership growing?

John McManus: Yes, it is growing but not as much as we would like. What is growing dramatically is our influence. As you are probably aware, in the US there have been a lot of new organizations that have sprung up – primarily Tea Partyorganizations – but there are second Amendment groups, as well. Some of them are fairly old but lots of new ones, too – followers of Glenn Beck, nullification-now organizations have started, Obamacare nullification and so forth, and we are pleased with that. A lot of the people who get involved begin to ask questions and usually there is a member of the Birch Society who has joined the group along with the other people and they start supplying answers. Because of the Birch Society's influence membership continues to expand. We are being invited to speak in front of these groups – I have done it myself and my colleagues. Most of our speakers' bureau activity has been due to a member getting an audience, selling tickets, etc. There are others, not just members, who are doing this and this is a very good sign.

Daily Bell: You have been accused as a society of being racist, homophobic and anti-Semitic. Why?

John McManus: I have always said how much it bothers me when I hear people saying we are a racist or anti-Semitic organization. It bothers me because it's not true, but it bothers our black and Jewish members even more. And yes, we do have members who are black or Jewish. We don't ask people what their skin color is or what their ethnic background is when they want to join the society. It has been a tactic of the Left, and especially the extreme left, to hurl dirty names and we have been accused of anti-Semitism and racism and it is certainly something we are aware of but it has no substance whatsoever.

Daily Bell: Why is the establishment frightened of you?

John McManus: They are mostly frightened of us because of our potential. If the John Birch Society could start a chapter in every community across the United States there would be a revolutionary change in our country, and the revolution would bring us back to what the founding fathers gave us – limited government under the US Constitution and a morally-based citizenship who does things because they are the right thing to do and not just for self-promotion. The potential of JBS has not been reached, only partially, and the great fear of the insiders and the people who want world government, is that our potential will be reached. That's why they fear us.

Daily Bell: Will you see the end of central banking in your lifetime?

John McManus: I can certainly hope so. I think the American dollar is going down and if it goes down there is going to have to be change. So we have taken some steps in alerting people about what needs to be done. We would like to see an end to the Federal Reserve but not overnight; it would be chaotic if it were done overnight. It has to be done incrementally. We would like to see an end to legal tender laws that say only the US dollar is acceptable as payment for debt. That's a bit of tyranny right in itself. We would like to see private mintage; we would like to see people getting back to using gold and silver. There's a bill in the congress right now to do away with the legal tender law, and we are urging members to understand what it is and why, and get their own congressman interested in it.

Daily Bell: How about the military-industrial complex?

John McManus: There has to be a military-industrial complex; you have to have a strong defense. Of course, if you want to have a strong defense you have to have weaponry, but what we want to see instead of the United States going around the world and policing the world, would be to see the troops brought home from Afghanistan and from Iraq and the Philippines and Japan and South Korea, and a couple of hundred other places American troops have been stationed. Our position regarding the military is that it was formed to protect the lives, liberty and property of the American people – period. That's all. Not to police the world or to force people to adopt our ways. If people want to adopt our ways through persuasion that's one thing, but don't force them. So you have to have a military-industrial complex. It would probably be a lot smaller if our government would get back to what we think the military should be instead of spread out all over the world.

Daily Bell: Is the dollar reserve system dead?

John McManus: Not yet. It's on life support. The destruction of the dollar has been brought about by conspiratorial influences. The Federal Reserve was started in 1913 and was largely the work of Edward Mandell HousePresident Wilson's Chief Advisor, who was a Marxist. He actually wrote a book in which he said he wanted socialism as dreamed of by Karl Marx. He had great influence over Wilson, and he had great influence over the people who brought us into the Federal Reserve in 1913. Of course, the Federal Reserve is one of the planks of the Communist Manifesto; plank #2 is progressive income tax, #5 is the Federal Reserve, #10 is education for all children in government schools – and I don't have to tell anybody why the government would want the kids in government schools.

Daily Bell: Is the EU dying?

John McManus: It is certainly in trouble. I would like to see it die. We are great believers in sovereignty and independence of nations. We even site the Holy Scripture on the subject. Nationhood began at the tower of Babel when some people tried to build a world government and challenge God. God confused the tongues and people who could speak with each other went over here and formed a nation, and people went to the other side and formed a nation and so forth. Nationhood was founded by God almighty, and therefore it is good. World government, which is the destruction of nationhood, is not good. So we are in favor of that. We believe that the European Union has captured the sovereignty of 27 nations. And the history of how they did it, lying and misleading people along the way as to what their real intentions were, is very serious. Plus, when Gorbachev came out and said that the European Union is the new Soviet, that kind of said a lot.

Daily Bell: Is China beginning to fail?

John McManus: No, I don't think so; I think it's doing quite well. China's now calling the tune in America. We are so heavily indebted to China right now, a trillion dollars or more, and China has said they are going to rethink buying any more United States debt. So if we want China to buy more of our debt, we have to do what China wants done so that China is in the ascendancy and the United States is in the decline. It never had to happen but it has happened, and so when things happen you can bet somebody wanted it to happen.

Daily Bell: Are we headed toward a real worldwide depression? Is it a managed one?

John McManus: Yes to both. I think we are headed to a worldwide depression. I think the dollar is sinking; it's under attack from within, the depression is about to be brought about, absolutely. It's very easy to look at the situation and to say, "Well, a dollar that is as sick as the US dollar is – the government ought to be doing a few things that would help to strengthen it and cease it's decline." I asked a fourth grader recently, "Do you think somebody who is heavily in debt should give away money?" And the fourth grader said, "NO, of course not." Well, we have a foreign aid program, the United States government, that admits to going into debt by a trillion and a half dollars year after year after year, yet gives away money. Ridiculous? Well, it's one way of looking at it but the other way to look at it is it's the deliberate way to destroy the dollar.

Daily Bell: Should people buy gold and silver even at current prices?

John McManus: Why not? If nothing else, gold and silver is a store of value and it might turn out it will be the only thing you can use to engage in commerce. I think the current prices are certainly higher than they were a year or two ago but they are still going higher. But I don't give financial advice. I have people call me up and ask, "What should I do with my portfolio?" I say, "Go get yourself a financial advisor."

Daily Bell: What do Americans have to do to return their country to freedom?

John McManus: They have to wake up and get off the couch and stop watching television. They have to realize that they have lived in the most free society that the world has ever known, and they did nothing at all to earn that. But what they have to do is to pass it on to their children and their grandchildren and for generations who are yet to come. That's what they have to do.

So what do Americans have to do to return their country to freedom? Get involved. Make sure you get involved in something worthwhile. There are organizations that have been formed in our country to lead people down a primrose path. That's a mistaken way to go about it, and we warn people not to get involved in organizations that are counter-productive.

Daily Bell: Are you worried about a military takeover?

John McManus: No. I am worried about a takeover in America that might then be enforced by the military. I don't think that the military takeover would come first.

Daily Bell: Who runs the US? Are the people known to Americans?

John McManus: Well, the insiders, certainly. We target the Council on Foreign Relations, a private organization headquartered in New York City. Each administration for the last several dozen years has reached out to hundreds of Council on Foreign Relations members; many of our presidents past have been members of the Council on Foreign Relations and the Council on Foreign Relations was formed to form world government. It actually was the work of the same man who was influential in forming the Federal Reserve, Edward Mandell House. When the US Senate said no to the League of Nations in 1919, its conferees built the Council on Foreign Relations, and they have developed major influence within the government of the United States, within the media, within the clergy. There are only 4,500 members, but it reads like the Who's Who in America.

Daily Bell: Are Americans apathetic or do they realize the increasing danger they face from their own government?

John McManus: Most of them are apathetic but fewer of them are today. There are a lot of people in this county who are concerned. They realize that indebtedness is a very serious problem. They realize that we shouldn't be a decade in a war in Afghanistan without victory and we shouldn't have gone to war in the first place without the required declaration of war that the US Constitution calls for. They are concerned about the poor education that their children are getting in the schools and so forth. So there are a lot of people who are less apathetic than they used to be and of course, we try to stimulate people to get away from apathy and get involved.

Daily Bell: What is the biggest challenge to freedom today?

John McManus: I think the destruction of the dollar. The dollar destroyed would lead to world currency under theInternational Monetary Fund, The World Bank – something related to the United Nations, to which those two organizations are related. That would be the end of sovereignty, which would be the end of the independence of the United States. There are many ways to destroy our country and the least likely way to invade it with military force. That isn't going to happen but you can destroy the United States economically, and you can destroy it ideologically and I think that is what is going on. So I think the destruction of the dollar is the greatest threat to freedom today and the build-up of the government of the United States and continued subservient nations.

You know, the last time the United States declared war was on December 8, 1941, the day after Pearl Harbor. We went to war in Korea under the United Nations. We went to war in Vietnam under NATO, a treaty organization, a United Nations subsidiary. We went to war in Desert Storm, the first attack on Iraq, under a United Nations resolution. We are still there under United Nations resolutions in Iraq, and the leader in Afghanistan is NATO, another United Nations subsidiary. So our military is doing the will of the United Nations and most of the people in the military have absolutely no idea that that is going on. Nor did I when I served as in the United States Marine Corps in the 1950s. I didn't realize it then, but I do now.

Daily Bell: Are the elite banking families and their enablers growing scared?

John McManus: I think they might be. We've got a candidate here named Ron Paul from Texas, who is probably as good a student about the economic side of the treachery going on as anybody, and the treatment he gets by the major media indicates that they are afraid of him. And if they are afraid of him, then they are a little bit scared. They are scared that their Federal Reserve is going to be replaced. They are scared that the constant bailing out of big industry by the Federal Reserve printing more money is going to stop, They are afraid of that. I want to point out, however, that Ron Paul isn't endorsed by JBS.

Daily Bell: They seem to try to run the world through fear-based propaganda. Is this failing?

John McManus: No, it hasn't been failing; I think it's quite accurate; it's been quite effective. I think it's less likely to fail now. See, Robert Welch, who formed the society, always said that the day would come when the situation developed would be so bad and so obviously bad that a lot of people would turn towards something that could right the ship. I think we are getting close to that point. Others have said it came and went, but I don't believe that. I think that the government of the United States is in deep disregard by the American people, and I hate to say it, but I think that's good.

Daily Bell: Is the world running out of oil?

John McManus: No, just the opposite. In fact, Canada and the United States have had some recent new discoveries and developed recent new technology about extracting oil from the ground. The United States could be totally independent of foreign oil in less than ten years if the government would get out of the way. There are tremendous oil reserves in North Dakota, which I think is the same that stretches over into Canada and goes into Montana, called Bakken. New technology for natural gas and petroleum – I have been reading articles just this week about the fact that we can be independent if the government would simply get out of the way. The discoveries that have been found within the borders of the United States are greater than the discoveries north of Alaska. So I don't think we are running out of oil; I think we have too much government.

Daily Bell: Is the world facing disastrous global warming?

John McManus: Oh, no, that's fallacy. There are over 19,000 scientists who signed a statement put together in the state of Oregon and they are combating the propaganda being spread by Al Gore and several others. We might be in a position where the temperature is a little higher several decades ago, which is probably brought about naturally, by sun spots, etc. But to say that the serious condition of global warming is brought about by human activity is completely bonkers – absolutely nuts. Happily, a lot of people have begun to see through this.

Daily Bell: Should people be taxed to create carbon sinks? Should the UN be in charge of such a tax?

John McManus: Of course not. It was proposed at the Copenhagen Environmental meetings a year or two ago. It wasn't just the United States that said no.

Daily Bell: Should the UN exist at all? Why does it exist?

John McManus: It exists as a challenge to independent nationhood. I can certainly see where one nation can have a relationship with others. Some ask, "If we get rid of the United Nations how are we going to know what is going on in other countries?" By golly, we have Ambassadors in every country, why not rely on them? And those Ambassadors are welcome. And the Ambassadors in other nations should know they are there and just there to explain why the US is doing this or that and so forth. World government, to me – I am opposed to it politically, economically and I'm opposed to it religiously.

Daily Bell: How about the World Bank and IMF? What's your opinion on these entities? Are they weaker or stronger in the Internet era?

John McManus: Well, the World Bank and the IMF are both United Nations subsidiaries. The World Bank and the IMF were put together back at the Bretton Woods agreement even before the UN was formed, and the architect of it was a guy named Harry Dexter White, who was a communist. Most of the leaders of those organizations right from the start were communists. That's my opinion about them. The Bank of International Settlements in Switzerland is a fledgling world bank and I think we ought to be careful of it, leery of it. Anything that leads to world government we should be on guard against.

Daily Bell: We like to report on an Internet Reformation similar to the one that occurred after the invention of theGutenberg Press. We expect radical change, possibly in societies around the world. Do you?

John McManus: No, I don't think you are going to have radical changes, but the Internet is a valuable tool, and it's valuable for both sides. As I said before, there's a lot of junk on it but there is also a lot of good on it. The Internet has turned out to be a good thing for us to be able to spread our influence, and to give people the idea that there are alternative points of view. But I don't see it changing societies around. You are talking about changing human nature and I don't think it's going to do that.

Daily Bell: Where do you see the John Birch Society in ten years? What are your biggest challenges today and how are you meeting them?

John McManus: Our biggest challenge is to build our organization, to build a chapter of the society in their community. We say if there are 500 members of the JBS in any congressional district, Congress will elect a US Constitutionalist. It's been done, it's been shown that it will be done and we need to get more people to take on that responsibility. There are people who don't want to get involved – they're too busy, they're trying to make a living, raise their family – but if the nation were attacked militarily they would be willing to volunteer, they would be willing to go and pick up a rifle or whatever. But the nation is being attacked. It's not by a military force but by people from within, who have gained power and lorded over everyone.

Daily Bell: Any other points you want to make?

John McManus: My closing comments are we have a great country here, and the Constitution of the United States has been lauded by many students of freedom. I can point to somebody who studied the US Constitution and said it's one of the greatest pieces of work that was ever put together by the mind of men. It's a document to govern the governor, govern the people. The John Birch Society says, our motto is, less government, more responsibility and with God's help, a better world. Less government? How much less? Get back to the US Constitution and as I said before, if the US Constitution was fully enforced, the government would be 20% its size and 20% it's cost. How about the Ten Commandments? Most of them are being completely ignored or violated, so the combination of the US Constitution to control the government and a freely accepted moral code like the Ten Commandments to govern the people, would, we believe with God's help, bring about a better world.

Daily Bell: Any reading material you want to suggest to people? Websites? Books?

John McManus: Come to JBS.org and you'll see more material than you can believe. I just recently gave a speech in New Jersey, and I had a woman come up to me and say, "I am completely blown away." I asked why. She said, "I taught school for 30 years and am now retired and I always told my students how good the UN was and how bad the JBS was. Now I see I was completely off base. Thank you so much for coming here today. Your speech was wonderful." That kind of thing happens, and if people would give us an honest look at what we say and our history, we will win.

Daily Bell: Thank you for your time. Good luck.

John McManus: Thank you. It's been a pleasure.

We've followed JBS and the New American magazine for decades because the Society and its publications helped pioneer the kind of history that seems plausible to us – directed history – in which a handful of wealthy banking families and enablers ("insiders," in JBS lingo) conspire to create one-world government through a series of false-flag events, wars and political control. As a result, it's come in for its fair share of abuse from both the Left and Right. It's been called anti-Semitic, racist, homophobic – and those are just the polite criticisms.

The Birch Society puts a lot more emphasis on communism than we might, but that's been its hallmark since its inception – and in the mid-20th century the Cold War was a big deal. Regardless of its emphasis on communism (which is only one part of directed history in our view) there's no mistake that the Birch Society and its seminal books have had an impact on several generations offree-market thinkers.

The Society's initial heyday was in the mid-20th century when it was relentlessly attacked, but it has obviously stood the test of time and many of its predictions and points of view have been validated by current events. It's been more accurate than Western mainstream media about underlying socio-political and economic trends, that's for sure.

Nonetheless, perhaps because of its success, the attacks keep coming. And a surprising one came from alternative-journalist Eustace Mullins, a friend of the great poet Ezra Pound, who wrote some of the most scathing and intriguing books about the power elite that you'll ever read. Mullins, in our view, had a habit of making mind-bending assertions that may be valid but are not very provable.

That's apparently because he used a lot of information derived from the circles he ran with and the private conversations he had; logically, he may have had some trouble footnoting such perspectives. It did lead to fairly inflammatory allegations. 

Anyway, we went looking for the allegation by Mullins and found it in a Rense article entitled, "An Afternoon With Eustace Mullins by James Dyer," posted at Rense in 2003. Here's the pertinent text:

JBS was setup by Nelson Rockefeller. I knew two people at the original meeting. They needed a right-wing, anti-communist organization. NR decided that Robert Welch was the man to run JBS, so he arranged for the sale of Welch's Candy Co. (where Robert Welch had been working for his brother John) to Nabisco (which was a Rockefeller controlled company) at a highly inflated price and Welch was given an income to run the John Birch Society.

Revilo Oliver was a good friend of mine and he was one of the founders of the JBS. He and I were sitting in his living room once and he told me that he knew Nelson Rockefeller ran the Birch Society because he had a revolving fund at Chase Manhattan Bank, and whenever Welch needed a quarter million dollars to meet the payroll, he'd go to CMB and withdraw the money.

We thought at the time the allegation was a little "far out" and thus we're happy to have provided Mr. McManus the opportunity to rebut it. It's an especially pertinent issue given that as the Internet Reformation continues to expand, the Hegelian divide-and-conquer tactics of the power elite come under more exposure and sustained attack.

We've been struggling this past week, for instance, to cover what seems to be an obvious attempt by the power elite to infiltrate and influence the sprawling Occupy Wall Street movement – to turn it into a controlled opposition of sorts. In fact, some allege it was founded with this in mind.

Over the next week, we'll try to concentrate on the libertarian elements of movement, as it is a great deal more difficult to maintain a controlled opposition in the 21st century than in the 20th. People know a lot more thanks to the Internet, which has thoroughly exposed the plans for a One World Order for those who care to look and read. Of course, JBS was exposing Western elites in the 20th century, long before the Internet. Historically, its membership has fought for freedom and against what can be called Money Power.

Followup: We went looking for other information regarding Eustace Mullins's statement regarding JBS and Welch. We found this statement from alternative journo Kelliegh Nelson, in an article entitled "The Tea Parties, Part 3," posted August 2011 over at NewsWithViews:

Third and of special importance is a correction that needs to be made from the first article. I don't know of a journalist or a researcher that doesn't make mistakes from time to time, but I pride myself on targeting the truth and on correcting errors. This time, I made an error by believing an old and vicious rumor that I should have checked more thoroughly before I linked to it. The link was in regards to the John Birch Society founder, Robert Welch.

The link stated that Welch's candy company was purchased by a Rockefeller holding at a large sum of money in order that Welch head up the new John Birch Society. Now it is well known that Rockefeller monies have funded other large organizations, but the JBS through Welch's candy company is not one of them. Robert's candy company had failed and he went to work for his brother's candy company until 1956.

I believe it was in 1958 that he started the John Birch Society. It wasn't until the early 60s that James Welch sold his candy company to Nabisco. Whether Nabisco was owned in part or in whole by any Rockefeller entity is of no importance inasmuch as funds from the sale of James' candy company were not instrumental in funding Robert's new Society.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

Ok Anthony, you have looked the man in the eye and listened to what he said, but how many other intelligent people have been BEGUILED by a sincere smile and surreptitious word-smithing? Perhaps you might consider inviting Michael Collins Piper, author of “The Judas Goats the enemy within” to a similar interview, and read the book beforehand. I may also add that Eustace Mullins is not the only great author who had problems with documentation, of which there is no more guaranteed authenticity than the spoken word. You would not be the first astute author to be beguiled, and you will not be the last, due to the giant intellects and money power involved with dismantling America. Apparently, it comes down to weighting the volume of evidence by comparison to known events, as nothing in this world seems provable anymore. We are up against the best and brightest liars in history, and we were not there when it happened. So, who is right and who is lying is a judgment call in many cases, and I make my judgments by always being aware of humanities depraved nature. The commies warned us of their methods and now we have to live with it. Whether the JBS is a Zionist front is anyone’s guess, but Piper makes a good presentation, and so did Mullins. Surely, you did not expect Mr. McManus, and the JBS to admit to being a Zionist front for the communist. As I see it, we have only one option to save America, and that is the elimination of the International Bankers control of our currency, and the nationalization of their assets for the benefit of the world. Then we can begin to reconstruct our Republic and make the needed amendments to our Constitution. Ultimately, it is who we know is our enemy, and not who might be an enemy, that we should focus on. You will notice that while I have an occasional difference of opinion with the Daily Bell, I am a loyal re-publisher of your articles at http://anationbeguiled.com ,and http://anationbeguiled.wordpress.com, and I have the highest regard for you and the rest of the staff. Posted in the comments of the daily Bell 10 09 11

In the interest of being fair, here is what happened less than two hours after I wrote the reply above. A link arrived by email to listen to a speech by Catherine Austin Fitts The Looting Of America http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oUlQ7vElqqo

After a one hour verbalization of how our own government is self destructing, I notice on the right hand side bar a speech by Robert Welch in 1958, so I watched it, and I recommend everyone reading this to do the same. It is mind blowing to realize he knew so much so far in advance to everyone else. BUT, what does that have to do with where we are today? What did Welch accomplish even with the foreknowledge it was coming? I say again and I’m going to keep saying it over and over, Gear down the federal reserve’s power over our currency, and begin the transition to a gold backed treasury issued dollar, and we will be able to starve the monkey and the tape worm monetary system.

Disaster Management

This is the first of three articles by John Longenecker on

Disaster Management :
 
I would suggest you pay heed to items four and five.  These two items will be of extreme importance especially if you have made emergency preparations by storing food and water where others in the neighborhood have not.  If you are apt to help others in a disaster who have failed to prepare for such events you will want to be sure YOU remain in total control of any and all supplies you have stocked.
 
You may think these are extreme measures but if you have been following what is happening around the world and are aware of the United Nations Agenda 21 you are well aware that a disaster of some sort is very near.
 

DISASTER MANAGEMENT: BE PREPARED AND ARMED

Safer Streets 2011: Disaster management: The better preparedness model will be armed

I’m noticing a great many articles appearing which encourage citizen preparedness for widespread emergency. Many of these seminars are well-intentioned, but they are lacking several vital ingredients. Many of these are Physician-led lectures, and they lack the same vital ingredients.

The main thrust of any dependable household preparedness plan will arise from acceptance of the fact that assets will not reach them for days to weeks. Most programs do not mention citizen authority to act in the absence of first responders, that is, in the absence of Police and EMS. Most households do not know the latitude of their own authority and try to noodle out or guess about how to prepare, and noodle it all on the assumption that they are extremely limited.

The fact is that households are not as limited as they assume. Some disaster management seminars for citizens are like violence prevention seminars: they lack vital ingredients.

Disaster preparedness sees three segments: disaster planning, disaster management and disaster recovery. These are managed best by adding several generous helpings of citizen involvement. The problem is that professional plans generally operate on citizen exclusion and obfuscate the value and secrets of citizen authority.

In time of emergency, such as an earthquake, a flood, or a terrorist strike, first responders of Police and EMS are immediately overwhelmed. It will be hours before new shifts and others mustered to duty will show up and be deployed.

The sheer expanse of geography will affect deployment, travel time, search and rescue, and care. These will take more hours to days to reach and triage victims, not to mention treat them and transport them. For days and days spent calling in extra personnel then deploying over large expanses of land, many patients go without. They have to wait.

National Guard, Army, FEMA, insurance underwriters, Red Cross and other non-profits are not first responders, they are secondary. They canvas neighborhoods, leave markers, rescue when necessary, recover when necessary, and generally move people to safety. They have a lot of mobile assets, but they, too, are not on scene as fast as others: you.

Patients do not always have to wait. Citizens do not have to ask permission.

To get out of Preparedness Lite, certain realities must be seen in the public interest because it is in the household interest. One house does it right, other homes do it right, the community is doing it right. Safer homes become safer communities. Safer communities mean survival.

Break your preparedness plan into five categories. Here are a few added suggestions to enrich the lighter seminars and fortify your abilities and goals:

1. Food and water.
2. Energy.
3. Safety
4. Security.
5. Ability to move or help others.

1. Food and water is not to be underestimated. Figure how many persons are in your household, how much they eat and drink in four meals a day, and multiply it by five months. Don’t go with perishable items. Remember how much water is used for laundry and personal hygiene.

Food and water is an essential not only for nutrition and health, but for managing stress. Disaster is not the time to diet, and it is the time to be sure and get the right nutrition including comfort foods to manage stress. It’s hard to go wrong with chocolate bars, for instance. Be sure you include favorites in ample supply when you go shopping for your Disaster Planning Pantry.

2. Energy in cooking fuel, energy for both heating and cooling, and electrical energy for portable and fixed lighting. Solar panels are tremendous in recharging batteries to operate AC inverters to run small and even large AC devices. Don’t forget both AM and FM radios on battery and two-way radios for your freedom to move about the neighborhood and stay in touch. Solar panels charge batteries so that your devices can operate at night. Buy enough so that you can operate your devices twenty-four hours a day for at least two days at a time.

3. Safety includes training in First-aid and CPR. Do it. It is also having enough of your medicine regimen to last a reasonable portion of a disaster, which could easily be months and months.
Contact your provider to write you a prescription. Pharmacies and providers are already used to filling prescriptions for patients’ Earthquake Preparedness Kits. Ask about some for you. Some providers urge patients to take smaller dosages when supplies are expected to run out and not be replaced, but it might be better to have the more ample amounts on hand.

Be sure to have some place to store your meds. Some homes have two pantries for that purpose, each with refrigeration that is electric or well insulated. Battery operated coolers can be found and recharged by solar power and can be dependable for Insulin-dependent patients. Some cars have them. You may have to look hard for this device, and if you cannot find one (or if they are sold out) you may have to build one.

You can also ask your provider for alternatives to refrigerated Insulin. A good substitute for Insulin is, in the opinion of some endocrinologists, sulfonylureas which stimulate the pancreas to manufacture more. Ask your provider and mention that you are building your Earthquake Preparedness Kit. The stuff keeps better, it’s easy to take, and rapid-acting. Be sure to have snack on hand.

This is part of the serious-mindedness of preparedness: if you don’t see it, ask for it. If they don’t have it, make it yourself.

So far, all of this is Chapter One stuff. Everybody knows these first ones. Let’s get serious now.

4. Security. Make certain your household can defend itself with lethal force. Remember that the Police are not the only agent of the law, the sovereign citizens being the ultimate legislators. Any person can keep the peace and enforce the law within reason, especially felonies, and self-defense is one of the better established doctrines which citizens have summoned for generations.

This is one of the ingredients missing from Preparedness Lite, being armed for the security of the household and the neighborhood. One does not “Play Cop”; one realizes that cops derive their authority from us to begin with.

A handgun is essential for close quarter use and less conspicuous movement around the neighborhood. I will not say that all laws are suspended and encourage people to willy-nilly break laws, but in time of emergency, latitude and reasonableness under the circumstances reigns for neighborhood safety. Reasonableness is a superb guide under any circumstances.

At other times, a shotgun is better suited than a handgun. There are bazillions of reports where the sound of a well-oiled slide action of a shotgun with the subtle sound of a shell actually being chambered has saved more lives than some might think. Ownership of lethal force kept handy and battery-ready in preparedness is safer than an entire neighborhood being disarmed only to be at the mercy of thugs.

Thugs are not the only denizens to watch out for. Scavengers thrive in time of disaster.

Scavengers are opportunistic predators who simply await disaster. These people are the child abductors, rapists, the sneak-thieves and the molesters who may have no history of crime, but as opportunity appears where chaos serves as cover, scavengers surface in large numbers.

Scavengers are the predators of polymorphic taste for desiring and seizing whatever turns up, be it a child, an old woman, a couple of kids flashing collectors items or a nearby unlocked front door.

Scavengers are the first-timers in time of disaster when no one is looking as much as others are the serial offenders when no one is looking. In time of chaos, they may never be caught or stopped. As I said, they employ chaos and conditions as their cover, and they can be very creative.

These people are added to the population of thugs of property crimes. These are the offenders of person. These scavengers are ordinarily stopped – if they are stopped at all – by general timidity up to now, by societal alertness of others, such as witnesses, Good Samaritans, and by other safeguards. Alertness actually prevents many attacks of opportunity for these first-timers, but make no mistake; these otherwise timid predators are as dangerous as roving packs of dogs, who also emerge in time of disaster; they don’t come out under normal conditions, but with nobody to stop them, they come out to feast.

Another reason to have a gun is for all sorts of dogs now dangerous like never before, both four-legged and two-legged.

These compound the population of dangerous persons and, unlike thugs, are easily overlooked, hard to recognize and in fairly large numbers. Your being armed with a handgun handy and battery-ready can make all the difference in the world.

Anti-freedom personalities believe that they know how much ammunition is too much ammunition. Gun owners know that ammunition availability is never assured, so it is not out of line to have thousands of rounds handy. Thousands of rounds in any household is by no means out of the ordinary any more than having plenty of soft-drinks or fire extinguishers around is. Practice consumes large numbers of ammo, and you never know when your life will depend on having enough over time of doing without police. Consult your gun seller for what is right for you.

To be better prepared for the hazards of a disaster is to be armed. Even when assets do arrive, they may not have lethal force of their own to back up any security for the neighborhood. They may have ammo shortages of their own.

They don’t have to protect people anyway, and millions of gun owner know this. Police have no affirmative duty to protect individuals from the criminal acts of others. For the non-gun owner interested in better preparedness, this means learning how to shoot, selecting a few different weapons, and taking training in personal defense. Thugs, scavengers and packs of wild dogs who are afraid, hungry and vicious are among the worst hazards of a disaster. You will not talk them out of plundering you. Less-then-lethal doesn’t work.

You don’t have to shoot, at least not as a knee-jerk reaction. Self-defense is not about reaction, it is about purposeful response. Often – often enough – this is adequate to discourage predators, but you can’t do that without a gun and you certainly won’t be taken seriously without one. The key is to resolve that you will be armed for the case when you need it to protect yourself and loved ones, and resolve that you will be fully prepared to shoot if you must.

Understand why you are armed: you are alone and without anyone else to protect the community. You are not the self-appointed police of the neighborhood, you and the rest of your neighbors can cooperate in an effective and most practical protection of the neighborhood.

Remember also that – in time of disaster – a simple intention of robbery can suddenly change into an intention of no witnesses. Or an opportunistic rape or beating. It’s all about using chaos as cover, and for the predators who have such a carte blanche, imagination thrives.

    [Advertising: Book "Grants Pass" predicts the safest place to ride out the coming apocalypse is Grants Pass, Oregon]

In being armed, the key is not in reading the mind of thugs you may encounter, the key is in writing the mind of thugs. One is not safe in waiting for a predator to divulge his intentions, the key is in notifying him of yours.

The best way is to take training.
Take course.
Take Emergency Medical Technician -1 courses.
Take handgun and shotgun courses.

5. Your ability to move and to help others. Being visibly armed, you may find, is common in time of emergency. You do not want your household to be one which is noticeably not armed. Being armed resonates with other armed families and builds cohesion, which is essential for neighborhood survival by having at least one less hazard. Being armed is not a hazard, it removes a hazard of not being armed and therefore likely prey. Being able to move about the community safely to aid others may make all the difference in their world.

Being armed is just as important a PR move of prevention as it is when the gun is fired in self defense. Lives can be saved and no one needs to be shot if thugs get the picture early on that their crap is futile and a community refuses to be a victim.

Finally, think of a community fund. Gather every house on the block and see about everyone contributing to what you believe all of you will need as a community asset. Some might like to purchase at least ten walkie-talkies as the very first item. I know of a neighborhood which plans to put up vehicles as end-of-the-street blockers so that outsiders cannot drive in and maraud the neighborhood. They voted on whose cars would be used and who would have the keys so they can be moved. No nice cars on that list. Now, that’s cooperation!

Whatever you do, take it seriously. Assume nothing. Do not guess, learn. Meet, talk, and practice.

Don’t settle for Preparedness Lite. Be armed with knowledge, authority, and lethal force.

You are in control of all three.

Disaster is the worst possible time to exclude yourself from the roster of available resources for survival.

DISASTER MANAGEMENT

Just One Chance!

October 8th, 2011 by

 

Dear Friends,
 
What would you do if you knew you had just one chance to save your family and country from complete and utter destruction? What would you do if you knew there was a lawful and peaceful way to restore the Constitution as the supreme law of the land? As a former peace officer and county sheriff, if I were to take the stand in court right this minute, and be sworn to tell the truth, I would, without any hesitation or ambiguity, testify to you and every American, that there is a solution, that there is in fact a way to secure liberty, protect ourselves and our families, and once again live in peace and freedom.
 
The solution is in your hands, it is within your own backyard, it is in your county. The solution is state sovereignty and each county acting in accordance with the principles established therein. It's you working with your sheriff and other elected officials to stand against the tyrant and for individual liberty. The bottom line answer is your sheriff. Ultimately, he is the one who will decide what is and what is not enforced in your county. He has the authority and duty to interpose himself on your behalf to protect you from all enemies both foreign and domestic. He is the people's protector.
 
We have been working on this movement for three years and we are now ready to push this concept to the next level. What concept is this?  The concept of creating Constitutional Sheriffs all across America. The CSPOA (Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officer Association) is hosting its first national convention. We are inviting 150 to 200 sheriffs from all over the country to attend. We are going to train them, firm up their knowledge of the Constitution and their oath of office, and then establish a new declaration from the sheriffs to the Federal Government, that there are a few things these sheriffs will no longer tolerate from the feds. Literally, the CSPOA is going to create a nation of constitutional sheriffs. There is no abuse they will not be able to stop. With them on board the freedom train there will be no stopping us. We can have America back tomorrow; not next election (like that has ever worked) and not next year, now!
 
We need your help. We need you to pledge your lives, fortunes, and sacred honor to this holy cause. We have just started our “money bomb” and ask that you do whatever you can to help us pay for this Constitutional Sheriffs convention. We are not asking for your fortunes, but merely that you do what you can. To make this all happen we must raise $200,000 to cover all the Sheriffs’ travel, accommodations, and training costs.  As soon as we reach our targeted goal, the convention happens. It will be the most important meeting since the Founders signed the Constitution.
 
In addition please watch my Oath Keeper message and forward to your local Sheriff and invite them to this very important first national convention. And do forward this email in order to help get this message seen by all the Sheriffs across this great country. These Sheriffs are key to taking back our Republic!
 
To donate online for this urgent Constitutional Convention visit http://www.cspoa.org/  or www.sheriffmack.com.  To send checks or money orders mail to CSPOA,  112 Ridgewood Dr., Fredericksburg, TX 78624.  Your contributions are not only appreciated but a valuable part of restoring freedom in America!
 
 
Yours in liberty,

Occupy Wall Street Turns Into 1930s Populism

Thursday, October 06, 2011 – by Staff Report

 

Occupy Wall Street: Thousands March in New York as Unions Join Protest … Thousands of people gathered and marched alongside Occupy Wall Street Protest as union labor gave their support to the long-running protest Wednesday. Protestors with union slogans left work early to march from Occupy Wall Street to Foley Square in Lower Manhattan making it the largest demonstration since the movement was launched on Sept. 17. – International Business Times

Dominant Social ThemeThe people have had enough. Get rid of the corporations and the bankers just the way they did in the 1930s.

Free-Market Analysis: It must have been intensely frustrating for the powers-that-be over the past few years to witness the explosion of free-market thinking that accompanies the unrolling financial crisis that started in late 2007. But now there's Occupy Wall Street and one begins to hear the sad strains of populism reasserting themselves. We await the re-release of Grapes of Wrath.

The Anglosphere power elite needs to create an "us against them" mentality and free-market thinking doesn't yield that sort of analysis. The Internet has been a big stumbling block to their efforts to further socialize the world's economy on the march towards global governance. But now, thanks to Occupy Wall Street, the 1930s socialist dialogue is beginning to replay itself (see article except above).

Occupy Wall Street is making all this possible. There's no gainsaying it now. The reason that the organizers wouldn't release goals was because the entire effort has been a kind of power-elite setup. No one wanted the movement to reveal what it really was until it had gained some momentum.

(Editor's Note: Make no mistake, please. We would LIKE to believe that Occupy Wall Street will prove out to be a genuine LIBERTARIAN protest movement, but all the signs seem pointing against it. The mainstream media in particular is determined to portray it as neo-populism whether it is or not … Our elves feel increasingly sorry for certain organizers like David DeGraw, who wrote yesterday in his AmpedStatus blogsite that the Occupy Wall Street protests ARE focused on the central banking money mechanism, which is the evident and obvious root of the West's expanding economic ruin. You can see his LETTER TO ALEX JONES at the bottom of yesterday's article, "Occupy Wall Street – Oh No! [& Open Letter to Alex Jones].") … Sorry, Mr. DeGraw, but you'll need to make a lot of noise to redirect attention in the appropriate direction). Anyway, hope you do, but we're not optimistic at this point. The train is leaving the proverbial station …)

Increasingly, Occupy Wall Street is is revealing what it may have been planned to be all along: elitist propaganda. The populist meme underlying its formulation is finally taking off. This provides the REAL powers-that-be the rationale to pass more laws and further consolidate their control over the economy.

If the problem is seen as one of economic distortion due to central banking, then real change can occur. But if the problem is seen as one of Wall Street corruption and "greed," then we are due for a repeat of 1930s populism and its nonsensical, government-based solutions.

In fact, in the article excerpted above, we can see the memes on display that the great central banking families have been attempting to expand for the past four years. Occupy Wall Street increasingly looks to be the Trojan Horse that may finally bring these themes to the forefront of public consciousness and allow for yet further undermining of what's left of the globe's staggering economy. Here's some more from the article:

Foley Square was filled with thousands as several labor group speakers railed against corporate America. "Corporate greed has pulled every one of us here. It's time not to occupy Wall Street, but to take back Wall Street," Christopher Shelton, vice president of the regional branch of the Communication Workers of America yelled at the crowds.

Protesters participating in the Wednesday march were members of National Nurses United, the profession's largest U.S. union; the Transport Workers Union Local 100, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority's biggest; and the Working Families Party, a coalition of more than 60 community organizations, San Francisco Chronicle reported.

More than 15,000 people were estimated to attend the protest, Patrick Bruner, a spokesman for Occupy Wall Street said. Apart from being a leaderless organization, Occupy Wall Street is also known as a movement that started on Sept. 17 when thousands of people gathered at Wall Street to fight greed and corruption.

"Working people are going to stand together until we get fair justice in our economy," said George Gresham, president of the Service Employees International local. "We want to make sure our children have a future in this country that is not subservient to those who have more than they need."

We can see from this excerpt just what is going on. The Tea Party and the libertarian focus of the past four years – pointing the blame at government corruption, central banking and mercantilism – is to be swept away by Occupy Wall Street. Now, a new wave of populism is to allow the Anglosphere the latitude to further regulate the private economy.

All this is in the history books, of course. The great populism of the 1930s led to an entire empyrean structure of regulatory malfeasance: the SECNASD and a number of "self regulatory" organizations including the NYSE and the American Stock Exchange. The idea was to increase the "transparency" of the money business and thus make it "fairer" to the little guy. Didn't work of course. Things are far worse today, thanks to the expanding concentrations of elite power and the rigidity of solutions that regulation inevitably generates.

In order to really increase the fairness of "Wall Street" one would have to do away with central banking and the ability of the great central banking and their enablers to print money from nothing. This is the spark plug that fires the cylinder of the money business. This is the mechanism of Money Power. No fairness, no equity will ever return to Western civilization until Money Power is eradicated via the removal of central banks.

When you see people pointing their collective finger at "corporations," "Wall Street" or "bankers," you should know instinctively that you are being led astray. You are being focused on the wrong irritant. Here at DB, we're very conscious of the manipulations of the "populism" meme. One of our central analyses is how such dominant social themes have been effectively diminished by the truth-telling of the 'Net, what we have started to call the Internet Reformation

The Internet has actually retarded the populism meme most effectively, and we believe this will continue to be the case. Occupy Wall Street itself may be yet another attempt by the elites to rev up populism, but chances are it won't work very well. They've been after this meme for at least four years now without much success.

Or course that doesn't mean they won't keep trying. They never give up and they have endless resources with which to work. The idea is to get the "little guy" really upset over the inequities between Wall Street and main street. The more angry people are with Wall Street, essentially a transactional business of intermediaries, the less they will notice the "men behind the curtain" pulling the levers of power.

This suits the great central banking families of the City of London that want to INCREASE regulation and laws because the more laws there are, the more control they have … given that they THEY control the governments behind the scenes. Mercantilism is the method, and if Money Power can get people really worked up, they can pass more laws and gain even more control over societies and their economies. The more control, the easier it is to move toward one-world government, which is the ultimate goal.

The current system is rotten all the way through. Wall Street is part of the rottenness as are modern corporations, with their regulatory-induced gigantism. But the main problem is the endless price-fixing of currency. The powers-that-be will do ANYTHING to ensure that people don't concentrate on this one issue. That's why you'll see Occupy Wall Street's aggression increasingly turned toward Wall Street, the NYSE, industry bankers, multinational corporations, etc.

It's mainstream media's role to be an enabler of this sort of meme. Today, the Los Angeles Times went with the headline, "The new Populists?" – and this is theme that the great banking families badly want to spread around the Western world. Occupy Wall Street is a tool to help with this contagion, one which is now to be spread by the media and by the resources of increasing union support.

Conclusion: The idea, obviously, is to counteract the libertarian Tea Party movement (a genuine grass-roots, Internet-based phenomenon) and return the conversation to "greater social and economic justice" based on the use of "democratic" and "governmental" recipes for legislative redress. They didn't work in the 1930s and they won't work now. But you won't hear that from the mainstream press.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

David Degraw was smart enough to know better than to try and organize a public protest against the federal Reserve, because he knows the average American couch potato has no clue what the fed does, or what fiat money is. But now that the dull and ignorant have a group to hate because they are the most widely known manipulators of money, and filthy rich, along comes the most surreptitious egotistical hypocrite in the Internet revolution to take credit for diverting the mobs attention to the federal Reserve.

When, and if that happens, the big guns will send in their agitators to break a few windows and steal some merchandize, set some fires and draw out the wrath of the now well-financed N Y police thugs. David should have known that Alex Jones would capitalize on his movement, and turn it into another defeat of freedom, which is just what the folks watching their TV is going to see, and become even more convinced that protesting against the powers that be is useless.

As far as this OldDog is concerned, David should have stuck to what he really excels at, which is educating the clue-less on what is happening to America, and leaving the protesting to a future educated citizenry. As it is now, Alex Jones is going to stir up a mess that will set back the desire to learn and give the N Y Goons the credit for suppressing a possible resurrection.

All of this is typical of what happens to a brilliant teacher when frustration diverts his attention. The staff at the Daily Bell hit the nail squarely on the head in the above article, and David is going to lose much creditability.

Here’s hoping he turns out to being as great at organizing as he is at teaching, and proves us wrong. He has my financial support, and will retain it as long as I have it to give. I never expected  him to be a revolutionary leader. It gripes my ass that he gave Alex Jones a chance to get one up on him.

You can take this to the bank: the fed will not go down until the new world currency is ready to go into affect, or 100 million pissed off educated Americans take their guns to Washington and run them out of the country. We three per-centers are praying for the latter, because the peace-niks have shit for brains.

OBAMA TESTS ELECTION CRISIS

October 6th, 2011 by

By Jon Christian Ryter
October 5, 2011
NewsWithViews.com

North Carolina Gov. Bev Perdue, a Democrat, garnered a ton of unwanted national attention because of very serious comments she made to the Rotary Club in Cary, North Carolina on Tuesday, Sept. 28. In her speech, she said, "I don't know if the president or any of the candidates for President, quite frankly, from either party, have (inaudible)… But from my perspective, when citizens and taxpayers went from (inaudible)…You have to have more ability from Congress, I think, to work together and to get over the partisan bickering and to focus on fixing things. I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we won't hold it against them, whatever decisions they make, just let them help this country recover. I really hope that someone can agree with me on that." (The audio, provided by someone in the audience, is not good quality, and portions of the tape are inaudible.) But the essence is, Perdue, who was definitely floating a trial balloon to see how reception the American people would be to increasing Obama's term without the benefit of an election.

Perdue, and by extension, the guy in the White House, sees this scheme as something Republicans would buy into because it would let them vote against their constituency without the penalty of being thrown out of office for at least two years—or perhaps for the rest of their political lives.

On top of that, Democrats, for some strange reason, think if they can get a gaggle of stupid people to surrender their constitutionally-protected rights that will allow Barack Hussein Obama to simply issue an Executive Order and erase the Election of 2012. Perdue is not the first to suggest skipping a national election to convenience the Democratic Party (as Obama, a student of history, well knows).

In 1940, when he was going to test a third run for the White House against mounting opposition from both Republicans and Democrats alike arose, Franklin Delano Roosevelt used his talking heads to try to convince the Republican Party not to contest his reelection. The reasons? First, the unemployment crisis had become catastrophic and even those who voted for him in 1932 and 1936 were now disillusioned with the New Deal that was beginning to look more like the Raw Deal. Second, there was now an "international crisis" caused by Japan and Germany's aggression in Europe and Asia. FDR's advocates argued for an uncontested election because the national emergencies America faced, they said, were so catastrophic that America could not afford an inexperienced commander-in-chief at such an important chapter in history.

When I heard Gov. Perdue's remarks about the national crisis Obama faced reminded me of Admiral William Franklin "Frank" Knox, who ran as the GOP vice presidential nominee with Wendell Wilkie in 1936. Knox favored the GOP not contesting FDR's re-election. As pathetic as Wilkie ran (the Electoral vote notwithstanding—449 to 82 for FDR) in popular votes, 1936 was a close election. Roosevelt came close to losing several industrial States. The votes were that close. But, they were "winner-take-all-electoral-vote" States, so the Electoral Votes made it appear as though the New Deal was popular with the working man when roughly 45% of those who wanted to work could not find a job (although the official unemployment rate in 1939 was 25%).

FDR, like all of the social progressive presidents (and one unconstitutional usurper) before and after him, did not oversee a free market economy through a "truly-free and honest" free enterprise system. They manipulated the US economic system based on the tenets of dictatorial mercantilism. The mercantile economic system, created by Alexander Hamilton and fashioned by America's first dictator, Abraham Lincoln, the Jacobin Whigs and the Free Soilers who merged into what was named the Republican Party. Mercantilism prospered through the Civil War as Lincoln waged a civil war not to end slavery, but to destroy States rights and force the States to succumb to the edicts of the federal government. But it was a small victory since the States retained the power to kill any bill offered by the House (although the Jacobin Republicans unconstitutionally ratified the 14th Amendment that bound the States with the same Bill of Rights restrictions the bound the federal government.

(The following, while not pertinent to the discussion on contemporary politicians attempting to further erase the Constitution, sheds additional light on the fraudulent ramifications of the 16th and 17th Amendments which is pertinent to this discussion..) When the Jacobins proposed the 14th Amendment, only the northeastern industrial States, which wanted federal supremacy over the States from the birth of the Republic, flawlessly voted to ratify it. The States viewed the 14th Amendment as the abrogation of States rights. In the South, the Amendment was ratified at the point of a bayonet. Fearful of the federal government which had just concluded a 4-year civil war to establish federal supremacy, most of the States which submitted flawed resolutions of the proposed 14th Amendment knew they would have to be rejected by Secretary of State William H. Seward. Instead, Seward simply ignored the flaws which made almost every resolution a different amendment, and certified the 14th Amendment as lawfully ratified on July 28, 1868.

Why would the States do that when they could have simply rejected it? Because the federal government, which had just overthrown State supremacy, frightened State leaders—who were so terrorized by the invisible money power whose financial wherewithal could abruptly end their political careers—voted to ratify the 16th Amendment, believing Seward would be forced to reject their flawed resolutions. The irony in the fraud perpetuated on the American people by the princes of industry and the barons of banking in the fraudulent ratification of the 14th Amendment was that the flawed amendment was used by Woodrow Wilson's Secretary of State Philander Knox and his Solicitor General Joshua Reuben Clark to show that the flaws in the 14th Amendment were not legally important since they did not prevent it from being certified as ratified.) Those typographical and verbiage flaws exist only in the 14th, 16th and 17th Amendments. Those are the only amendments to the Constitution which usurped the supremacy of the States and, by corrupting the federal court system, assured the federal government's dominance over the States.

For 77 years, from 1836 to 1913, the States refused to reauthorize a central bank in the United States. The States relented only because, before enacting the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, the federal government unconstitutionally certified, as ratified, the 16th and 17th Amendments. The 17th Amendment took the US Senator out from under the thumb of the State legislators and put them under the purview of the princes of industry and the barons of banking and business. It was an arrangement they liked. States rights disappeared on April 8, 1913. Lincoln's war against States rights was a victory for federal supremacy. Which was the whole purpose of the Civil War.

The 16th Amendment created a federal income tax—a right, heretofore, not possessed by the federal government although, from 1862 to 1878, the Jacobin Congress legislated a blatantly unconstitutional federal income tax. The Executive Branch argued before the US Supreme Court that an income tax was imperative to protect the nation in a time of great civil unrest. And the Whig/Federalist dominated Supreme Court yielded to the White House just as Chief Justice Charles Evans Hughes yielded to FDR whenever Roosevelt used his trite, worn-out 1929 national emergency to promulgate his merchantistic agenda. FDR's "national emergency" became Obama's "national crisis."

Presidents are the greatest students of history. Unlike your children and grandchildren who get to see only the revisionist's view of history (made to fit the future that is being tailored for the American people by the princes of industry and politics, and the barons of banking and business, politicians learn history as it really was. For example, all of us watched as Obama and the Democratic leadership in the Senate created the imaginative Super Committee to solve the debt and job crisis. In the closing days of the 35th Congress, the Senate promulgated what was called theCommittee of Thirteen (formed by Sen. Lazarus Whitehead Powell [D-KY] and Sen. Charles Sumner [R-MA] on Dec. 6, 1860 to try to keep South Carolina from seceding from the nation. They failed. A second group, called the Committee of Thirty-three (one Congressman for each of the 33 States) was formed in a last ditch effort, a month before a man with a 39% mandate from the voters was sworn in as the 16th President of the United States, to restore the Union. It failed as well because the secession of 11 States had nothing to do with slavery and everything to do with States rights, and the supremacy of the States over the federal government.

The princes of industry and the barons of banking and business radically altered the free enterprise system by creating what can only be called "crony capitalism" that mirrors a free market society, but without laissez-faire principles. Crony capitalism depends on [a] a currency not tied to the gold standard, [b] a central bank which can create money at will, [c] taxpayers to carry the debt they spend, and [d] a cooperative Congress and White House to distribute the nation's wealth to a select group of industrialists, bankers and business elites through what we now recognize as a form of corporate welfare that financially enriches those who donate heavily to the war chests of whomever wins the keys to the government's piggy bank.

Mercantilism is wrapped up in the fabric of socialism. Mercantilism is the belief that economies work best when government intervenes in all areas of economic life. Control over the population comes from a corrupt collaboration between the princes of industry and politics, and the barons of banking and business.

It was important to know how—and why—the federal government works. And why a career politician would risk her career to advocate such a breach of constitutionality that it would likely end her career.

Perdue came under attack for suggesting that the 2012 election be suspended until the nation's economy improves—sometime after 2014. She waffled after radio talk show guru Rush Limbaugh said she was dumb, stupid, bumbling and foolish, and Glenn Beck attacked her lack of constitutional integrity in The Blaze. "Soak-the-rich Perdue" who, like Islamo-fascist Obama, is in bed with socialists who now control the United States government, countered by saying the remark about postponing the election was sarcasm, not a real suggestion. A survey taken by The Blaze confirms that 97% of the American people think she's a liar. She was Obama's opening salvo to simply erase the Election of 2012 and let him continue to rule by Executive Order.

Of course, if that happened, the Election of 2010 would be the last free election ever held in the United States of America. Barack Hussein Obama, who has nothing except contested evidence to support his contention that he was born anywhere near the United States, appears to be suffering from a FDR phobia—the fear of not getting reelected.

Aside from the traditional reelection killer—an official US Dept. of Labor total unemployed rate of 16.4% as of Aug. 31, 2011—Obama knows he has not succeeded in outrunning his lack of birth bonafides, several States have, or are contemplating, laws to require long-form birth certificate verification before being placed on the ballot. With his popularity plummeting even with core Democratic voters, Obama is attempting to shore up the far left support that provided most of his legitimate votes in 2008, Obama killed Don't Ask, Don't Tell, and has created the American Jobs Act legislation that contains two provisions that should not be in any federal legislation.

First is a provision, Section I, Title 3, Part II, Subtitle D, Subsection 374, that prohibits employers from not considering unemployed or non-qualified applicants, and providing relief to unemployed or nonqualified people who are not hired. Second is a clause, Section I, Title 3, Part II, Subtitle D, Subsection 376 kills a State's sovereign immunity if they accept funds from Obama's jobs bill.

Anyway you look at it, it's clear from America's reaction to Gov. Perdue, the American people are not going to sit idly by and let Obama write an Executive Order and postpone the Election of 2012 until the jobs picture gets better in the United States. Particularly when most Americans believe that as soon as Obama loses his job the unemployed American worker will find one. Well, for whatever it's worth, once again, you have my two cents worth on this subject.

The events transpiring within Wall Street have caught our eye.

It seems that the government and Federal agencies enjoy enforcing the law a little bit too much. They instate unjust laws as mindless automatons, blindly following orders with soulless precision.
We witness the Government enforcing the laws that punish the 99% while allowing the 1% to escape justice, unharmed, for their crimes against the people.
We have observed this same Government failing to enforce even the minimal legal restraints of Wall Street's abuses. This Government who has willingly ignored the greed at Wall Street has even bailed out the perpetrators that have caused our crisis.
We will not stand by and watch the system take over our way of life.
We the people shall stand against the government's inaction.
We the people will not be witnesses to your corruption and ill gotten profits.
We will not labor for your leisure.
We will not assist you in any way.

This is why we choose to declare our war against the New York Stock Exchange. We can no longer stay silent as the population is being exploited and forced to make sacrifices in the name of profit.
We will show the world that we are true to our word. On October 10th, NYSE shall be erased from the Internet. On October 10th, expect a day that will never, ever, be forgotten.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

OldDog predicts this action, if it materializes, will have disastrous   consequences for the dissident internet community, and maybe for the entire internet community. However, the present national emergency we have with our traitorous federal government warrants some occurrence to get the ball rolling, or we will cease to exist as a self-governed Republic, and become an acknowledged totalitarian society. Obama is probably on his knees praying to alla for this to happen. I hope this group or person that is known as “Anonymous” has an exit plan, because there is going to be a hell of a lot of people willing to string them up when Wall-street hangs up.

We all know, this is a problem that’s not going away peacefully, and much blood is going to flow, but I doubt if many are willing to die for our freedom after a lifetime of Hegelian indoctrination. That’s reserved for us three %'s!

Theres No Way In Hell Were Making It To Nov 2012

October 5th, 2011 by

 

Adding to last night’s BBC spot of Mr. Rastani’s truth-telling, we have yet another experienced market trader telling the full-amount of truth:

Here is a piece from ZeroHedge.com that hopefully will make you all understand, once and for all, that this ain’t the 1930′s, and that there is absolutely no way in hell that this Republic is going to make it to November 2012.

Five Banks Account For 96% Of The $250 Trillion In Outstanding US Derivative Exposure; Is Morgan Stanley Sitting On An FX Derivative Time Bomb?

Summary: The five largest banks in the U.S. (JP Morgan Chase, Citibank, Bank of America, Goldman Sachs and HSBC) are carrying $238 TRILLION dollars in derivative exposure. JP Morgan alone is carrying $78 TRILLION in derivative exposure BY ITSELF.

Okay, what the hell is derivative exposure? What this is referring to are over-the-counter non-exchange traded forward delivery (or “futures”) contracts of various kinds. I am a futures broker, but I only execute futures contracts on the futures exchanges, namely the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and the New York Mercantile Exchange. About ten years ago a new “novelty” emerged in the futures business – the so-called “over-the-counter” contracts. There was a kid in the office I worked in who got wind of this and had all kinds of stars in his eyes about making a killing off of these “OTC” contracts because the brokers’ commissions were not a flat fee but a percent of the contract value. Here’s the problem with OTC contracts: there is no exchange standing between the buyer and seller as a guarantor.

In my business, when a customer executes a trade on a futures or options contract, it makes no difference who the other guy is on the other side of the trade, be it executed electronically or in the pit. None of us have to worry for a second about the counterparty on our executions because the EXCHANGE ITSELF stands between ALL transactions as the ultimate guarantor. The exchange then enforces the financial requirement rules with the Clearing Houses, the Clearing Houses enforce the financial requirement rules with the brokers, and the brokers enforce the financial requirement rules with the customers. That is the chain of financial responsibility. So, even if a customer bugs out and fails to financially perform on a contract, the contract WILL BE MADE GOOD by extracting the money from the broker, then the Clearing House and finally the Exchange. This massive enforcement buffering is what gives the system integrity.

OTC contracts have no exchange. They are a flipping free-for-all. If someone bugs out on a contract, the poop hits the fan. The counterparty has their pants around their ankles and the broker is caught in the middle. That’s why when that kid in my office years ago got all starry-eyed, I thought to myself, “I wouldn’t do that OTC crap if you put a gun to my head – no matter what the commissions were. It would be Russian Roulette. Eventually someone would default and it would financially destroy the broker instantly, and perhaps the counterparty as well.”

Let’s take my business – cattle futures. One contract is 40,000 pounds of live cattle. The spot contract settled at $119.725 per hundred pounds today. So, 40,000 pounds X $1.19725 (shift the decimal) = $47,890 total value of the contract. Since this is an exchange traded instrument, the customer doesn’t really have to worry about default and can go ahead and book that $47,890 today, and it will be offset at a later time, and the net of the entry and exit will be the P&L. The contract isn’t going to default, so the derivative exposure is limited.

Okay. These banks are carrying these OTC futures contracts with NO exchange to guarantee anything. And they are carrying these contracts largely WITH EACH OTHER. So JP Morgan might be the long and Goldman Sachs, or some insolvent bank in Europe is the short on the other side. If these banks default, which is now a mathematical certainty because they are not only insolvent, but insolvent multiple times over and there isn’t enough money in the world to bail them out, there is going to be a cascading default on all of these OTC contracts.

Now look at the value and exposure of these OTC derivatives again: the top 5 banks in the US alone have exposure of $238 TRILLION dollars.

The total GDP of the United States is $14.5 Trillion.

The total GDP of China is $6 Trillion.

The total land mass on earth is 36.8 billion acres. If every acre of land on earth was “sold” for $6467 per acre, that would total $238 Trillion.

JP Morgan BY ITSELF has derivative exposure equal to over FIVE TIMES the value of the entire US GDP.

And no, there will not be a 1:1 offsetting in a collapse, because the collapse will be asymmetrical, and the bankrupt party will first pursue FULL payment on its “longs” (think of these as accounts receivables) while its “shorts” (accounts payable) will only pay out 20 cents on the dollar OR LESS. In other words, these entities will tear each other apart in a mad dogfight and this dogfight will take the entire world down with it.

TWO HUNDRED AND THIRTY-EIGHT TRILLION DOLLARS.

AND THAT IS JUST FIVE BANKS.

AND THE MASSIVELY CORRUPT AND INCOMPETENT SECURITIES REGULATORS, BOTH GOVERNMENTAL AND PRIVATE, SAT BY AND WATCHED THIS HAPPEN. That is what happens when you let a group of criminals run a bureaucracy of affirmative action hires to “audit” the financial industry. Scroll down and read my post titled “There Must Be A Reckoning.”

It’s over. There is no coming back from this. The only thing that can happen is a total and complete collapse of EVERYTHING we now know, and humanity starts from scratch. And if you think that this collapse is going to play out without one hell of a big hot war, you are sadly, sadly mistaken.

Ann Barnhardt – Barnhardt Capital Management, Inc.

I’m going to add to what Ann has explained so well:

By the end of 2007, all the Too-Big-to-Fail (TBTF) banks were writing these things hand-over-fist because they already knew they were in doo-doo. All this did was put massive leverage into the system…..debt, leveraged upon debt, with no asset value behind much of it. And here is where it gets truly ugly for my conservative friends who refuse to look at Wall Street as the criminals they are: THEY DID THIS KNOWING FULL WELL THE MAJORITY OF THE DERIVATIVES THEY WERE CREATING WERE FRAUDULENT AND BACKED BY NOTHING. How do I know this? A myriad of lawsuits filed all over the country with a literal smitton of depositions on discovery. These are not lawsuits filed by merely disgruntled foreclosure victims; these are lawsuits filed by large insurance companies like Allstate and MetLife, and even The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFH) because they all realized far too late that they’d been sold worthless crap. This is not to mention how adamantly the TBTFs have lobbied against any whiff of the idea of forcing these things onto an exchange where they would be made transparent. That’s pretty much a tipoff that they’re hiding something very bad. If the used car salesman won’t let you look under the hood, you can be pretty sure there’s something there you won’t like much.

The idea Wall Street had here with creating these fraudulent pieces of toxic waste was that if even a fraction of these ‘paid out’ for them, they could ‘save themselves.’ Unfortunately this doesn’t work when Wall Street runs out of suckers; you know, pension plans, insurance companies, retail investors and other places they could sell these things to without anyone understanding what they were buying. Most importantly, when they ran out of suckers they could put into home loans they couldn’t afford, this was the beginning of the end and the whole scheme began to unravel.

Even better, our government not only looked the other way when they were made aware of what was going on, they began to aid and abet the criminal activity….because the TBTFs convinced the government that ‘economic meltdown could be avoided’ if they were just given time for the ‘asset values to come back.’ THIS whole game was facilitated by none-other than Hank Paulson. You know, ‘Mr-I-Have-A-Bazooka.’

Our entire global economy is a giant Ponzi Scheme. Makes Social Security look like a rounding error. This also gives one a better perspective on the stock market movements. (Yeah, 400 point Dow Jones Industrial ranges in a day is a ‘stable market’.) What the market is now is merely the TBTF banks chasing government cheese. Where is the next bailout coming from? Wherever they THINK it is (and since they push for it, they have a good idea), they front run it and pile in, using HFT to try to position better than the next TBTF. Who is going to get the next ‘exemption from the law’? Wherever they think THAT is coming next, again, they go ‘all-in’ – thus providing the massive swings in the market with both bonds (treasuries and corporate debt) and stocks. Any idea that there is ANYTHING left of a ‘free-market’ is a LIE. Wake up and smell the Ponzi conservatives, and stop defending the criminals with your cries of ‘it’s anti-capitalist to protest against Wall Street.’ It’s not about your neighbor getting a free house, it’s about massive, global, legalized financial rape.

Wall Street a/k/a the Too-Big-To-Fails are chasing corruption. They’re chasing legalized theft sanctioned by our government and you can watch it in real-time every day….just pull up a stock chart. Any stock chart.

Have a nice day.

Perhaps now you will start screaming STOP THE LOOTING & START PROSECUTING!

TOTTEN DOCTRINE

NEW STRATEGIES IN THE FIGHT TO STOP AGENDA 21

September 28th, 2011 by

 

http://www.newswithviews.com/DeWeese/tom204.htm

by Tom DeWeese
September 28, 2011
NewsWithViews.com

Plantation, Florida has just voted to NOT renew its ICLEI contract. That’s the eighth community in eight months to take such action. Plantation joins the growing list that includes Carroll County, MD; Amador County, CA; Edmond, OK; Las Cruces, NM; Spartanburg, SC and Albemarle, VA.

This is wonderful, positive news, indicating that more and more elected officials are starting to hear our arguments against this wrenching transformation of our country. For the first time I’m getting calls and letters from elected officials asking for more information. I am getting invitations to appear on new radio shows that have never aired this issue before. In June, I was contacted by the Glenn Beck show as he prepared an entire program on Agenda 21. He even linked APC information to his blog. I’ve now been contacted by one leading presidential candidate, along with a possible major donor who is considering helping us fund the fight. In addition to all of that, daily I hear from an ever growing list of activists working in their communities to stop Agenda 21. A revolution is certainly under way across the country.

However, as we are gaining success, we are also beginning to face stiffer resistance from the proponents of Agenda 21 and Sustainable Development. More than ever we are hearing their charges of “conspiracy theories,” “fringe nuts,” and “extremism.” It’s to be expected. We are openly challenging them and they are feeling the heat. That means, as we move forward, it’s vitally important that anti-Agenda 21 activist be very careful with how they approach local government to express their opposition.

I’m finding that there is a bit of a misconception in regard to one of the main proponents of Agenda 21, and it is hurting our ability to make progress in the fight. It is vitally important that we all get the following facts right when launching our attacks against ICLEI. Please read carefully. The International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI) has been a main target by the anti-Agenda 21 forces. We targeted ICLEI because it has a clear United Nations connection, making it easier for us to make our case to elected officials about the UN connection to Agenda 21 and Sustainable Development policy. However, some have misunderstood the ICLEI role and have misrepresented who it is and what it does. The result, in some cases, is that our legitimate arguments have been be ignored and even laughed at.

Let me try to set the record straight and provide some ideas on how to deal with the ICLEI situation. First, the following facts are certainly true and need to be understood by all anti-Agenda 21 activists: ICLEI is a UN NGO organization that helped write Agenda 21 for the 1992 Earth Summit and then set, as its mission, to bring Agenda 21 policy to every city in the world. It does this by meeting with local officials, signing contracts with them to set standards for energy and water use, building and development codes, farming policy, etc. It brings in training for city hall staff; soft ware to manage the programs; guidelines for legislation; networking with other communities, other NGO and Stakeholder groups and other agencies of state and federal government. They reach out to other public officials in the communities, including newspaper editors, school superintendents, local college presidents, and chamber of commerce leaders – all designed to assure everyone who helps make decisions and policy in the community are on board. And of course, ICLEI leads the officials to the most important ingredient to impose Agenda 21 – money – grant money that comes with specific strings to guarantee that Agenda 21 is enforced.

That grant money is like heroin in the veins. Once there, the addiction and dependency is in force. Once ICLEI has done its job, the community is hooked, and an entirely new attitude and community atmosphere of top-down control is enforced by the government. ICLEI’s influence basically creates an entirely new culture in the community where it becomes natural and basically unquestioned to expect local government to be involved in every aspect of your property, job, family and your whole life.

Now, that’s what ICLEI does and that’s why we targeted it and why it is so dangerous. However, the manner in which we expose and oppose ICLEI is very important and I have heard some enthusiastic activist go about it in a damaging and ineffective way. First, ICLEI is NOT the United Nations, as I have heard some charge before city councils. It is a private organization with its own agenda – of course it is promoting Agenda 21. But to say the city council is paying dues to the UN is just not accurate.

Another misconception is that ICLEI IS Agenda 21 and if the community stops paying dues and ends their contract with ICLEI the battle is over. I am receiving messages from people who are dismayed to learn their community is still moving forward with Sustainable Development programs even after they ended the contract with ICLEI. The fact is, ending the contract with ICLEI is just the first punch. From there you must be active in an effort to undo any programs ICLEI helped put in place. That includes changing the very culture of City Hall and its ICLEI-trained staff. It means an active campaign to dismantle non-elected boards and councils that are the prime source for enforcement of policy. It means removing your community from regional government councils. And it probably means electing new officials who oppose the Agenda 21 policy and have the ability and courage to stand up to an assault by federal and state agencies who will not be happy that you are rejecting their agenda. And through all of that you will have to be prepared to counter the attacks from the entrenched NGOs and the lackeys down at the local paper. Withdrawal from the drug of Agenda 21 can be deadly.

Finally, I believe there is a more effective way to attack Agenda 21/ Sustainable Development polices in your community, at least initially. You may be fired up about the UN, but others are not. As I wrote a few months ago in my article “How to Fight Back Against Sustainable Development,” rather than rushing into city hall and immediately start accusing them of implementing a UN program, take some time to research the policy being proposed or implemented. Determine the effect it will have on the community or your property. Who else will be affected and how? These are the victims of the policy and the most likely to support you efforts to stop it. In that way, you will recruit new people to the cause. You will find it much more effective than sounding like a rabid bear growling about the UN.

For example, smart meters or energy audits affect everyone in town. What is the problem: government is dictating your energy use that you are paying for. It is a violation of your right to choose how much energy you are willing to buy. It denies you the right to determine how warm or cool your house will be. It denies you the choice of taking a hot shower or not. It even affects your health if you can’t get warm enough – or if you are denied access to hot water, allowing germs to grow.

I believe such an argument will gain more support for your cause across the city and across party and philosophical lines than rushing to bring up the UN? Yes, the policy certainly did originate in the bowels of the UN. But why are we opposed to it – because of what it does to us. And that is the place to start to oppose it. As people come to your side, if they want to know more, then will be the time to teach them the rest of the story about Agenda 21 and its UN origins.

So, focus on the victims and the impact the policy will have on the well being of the community and you. Question how they intend to enforce the policy (such as having government agents come into your home). Make your officials explain that. They won’t want to. This will show the heavy hand of control required to make the policy work. Put the officials on the defensive over their enforcement efforts and watch them retreat as it’s exposed.

The same approach can be used effectively in dealing with plans to put meters on private wells, or in dealing with plans for historic preservation schemes that suddenly disallow private property owners to change or improve anything on their house because “Robert E. Lee didn’t see that change.” (You have to live in Virginia to understand that reference.)

Ask your County Commissioners this question: “name one thing I can do on my property without your permission.” To answer that question honestly will force them to admit that under these policies there is no private property. The important message here is to keep your fight local to stop their global agenda.

Agenda 21 is a vast, complicated structure. The organizations promoting it number in the thousands and include Non-governmental Organizations (NGOs), public policy groups, federal state and local agencies, self-proclaimed “stakeholders,” Congress, the White House, 50 state houses, and your local officials. You can’t fight them all individually. Instead, fight the policy and watch them come out of the woodwork to challenge you. By attacking the policy you have made them defend it and you will have shaped the debate. Then we’ll see who is really wearing the tin foil hats!

Discriminating Forefathers

September 28th, 2011 by

If there is a stain on the record of our forefathers, a dark hour in the earliest history of the American Colonies, it would be the hanging of the "witches" at Salem.

But that was a pinpoint in place and time–a brief lapse into hysteria. For the most part, our seventeenth century colonists were scrupulously fair, even in fear.

There was one group of people they feared with reason–a society, you might say, whose often insidious craft had claimed a multitude of victims, ever since the middle ages in Europe.

One group of people were hated and feared from Massachusetts Bay to Virginia. The Magistrate would not burn them at the stake although surely a great many of the colonists would have surely recommended such a solution. Our forefathers were baffled by them.

In the first place where did they come from? Of all who sailed from England to Plymouth in 1620, not one of them was aboard.

"VERMIN." That's what the Colonist called them. Parasites who fed on human misery, spreading sorrow and confusion wherever they went.

"DESTRUCTIVE." they were called.

And still they were permitted co-existence with the colonists. For a while, anyway. Of course there were colonial laws prohibiting the practice of their infamous craft. Somehow a way was always found around all those laws.

In 1641, Massachusetts Bay colony took a novel approach to the problem. The governors attempted to starve the "devils" out of existence through economic exclusion. They were denied wages, and thereby it was hoped that they would perish.

Four years later, Virginia followed the example of Massachusettes Bay and for a while it seemed that the dilema had been resolved.

It had not, somehow the parasites managed to survive, and the mere nearness of them made the colonists skin crawl.

In 1658, in Virginia, the final solution: Banishment; EXILE. The "treacherous ones" were cast out of the colony. At last, after decades of enduring the psychological gloom, the sun came out and the birds sang, and all was right with the world. And the elation continued for a generation.

I'm not sure why the Virginians eventually allowed the outcasts to return, but they did. In 1680 after twenty-two years, the despised ones were readmitted to the colony on the condition that they be subjected to the strictest surveillance.

How soon we forget!!

For indeed over the next half century or so, the imposed restrictions were slowly, quietly swept away. And those whose treachery had been feared since the middle ages ultimatly took their place in society. 

You see, the "vermin" that once infested colonial America, the parasites who prayed on the misfortunes of their neighbors until finally they were officially banished from Virginia, those dreaded, despised, outcasts masters of confusion were lawyers.

Reality Dawning

http://lewrockwell.com/orig11/sullivan-c6.1.1.html

by Chris Sullivan
Different Bugle

Previously by Chris Sullivan: Jonah's Job

Many years ago, a group of disgruntled patriots, nationalists or terrorists – depending on your perspective – went into the Capitol building in D.C. and shot five congressmen. The assailants were four Puerto Rican nationalists who unfurled a flag of Puerto Rico and then fired thirty shots into the floor of the chamber. This incident happened on March 1, 1954.

As far as I know, nobody tried to claim that these people committed this act for anything other than political reasons or that "they hate us for our freedom." One of the shooters supposedly shouted "Free Puerto Rico."

There was no talk of "3/1 changed everything." Everybody probably understood that the shooters wanted the US out of Puerto Rico. If someone had inquired as to why the assailants shot the congressmen, they wouldn't have been accused of "trying to justify the terrorists," it would have been recognized as a simple inquiry as to motive.

The same thing is true of the World Trade Center/Pentagon caper, but the public is discouraged from believing the perpetrators. Soon after the attack, Osama Bin Laden appeared in a video tape wearing his US issued Goretex camouflage jacket saying that he had nothing to do with the attack, but that he approved of it and congratulated the ones who pulled it off. He said (paraphrasing) that if the US continued to aid Israel and occupy "Holy lands," "I swear to God" it will happen again. After this the government made sure that the people weren't going to hear any more grievances from Mr. Bin Laden by prohibiting the showing of any more videos from him with the excuse that he "might be sending coded messages."

The video is probably on YouTube if it hasn't gone down the memory hole.

Immediately there was a propaganda campaign to assure the public that the attacks had nothing to do with American actions in the Middle East. All of a sudden it was discovered that these people hate us because we are good or because we are free. Has there ever been another case in history of one group being so resentful of another group that has not harmed them in any way that they are willing to kill themselves to inflict harm on the objects of their resentment? Would it be rational for someone to say to himself, "I'm barely eking out a living and my neighbor has millions of dollars and lives in a mansion. I think I'll crash a plane into his house to kill myself and perhaps kill him too?" The question answers itself.

If this were motivated by the Islamic religion, it would seem that all the disgruntled practitioners would not be concentrated in one area as I wrote about here.

Fortunately, there is a slow movement toward reality and now 43% of Americans believe that the attacks might have been motivated by something the US government did, according to this article about a poll by Pew Research Centre. According to the article:

"The shift, however, was mainly confined to self-described Democrats and independents, half of whom now believe US policies may have motivated Al Qaeda.

Republicans, on the other hand, remained steadfast, as on a number of other key issues, in their view that the attacks were not motivated by anything the US had done.

The survey also found major differences between age groups on this question. More than half (52 percent) of respondents under 30 said US actions may have motivated the attacks, while only 20 percent of respondents 65 and older were open to that explanation."

This might help explain why Rick Santorum and Rudy Giuliani claim to believe the party line. It's doubtful that anybody who has spent time in government would believe the "official" story. If these two are regular church-goers, they would have recited thousands of times the part of theConfiteor that says "…I have sinned through my own fault,… in what I have done and what I have failed to do…" i.e. taking responsibility for one's own actions. Why would governments be any different from individuals since people in the upper echelons of government are many times some of the worst people? The principle seems to be that whatever "we" do is fine and everybody had better like it.

Imposing sanctions and no-fly zones, supporting dictators, occupying territory, aiding one's enemies, toppling elected officials, etc, generates ill will from the victims of such actions. This is probably a universal rule.

When little Johnny keeps poking the rattlesnake with a smoldering stick we shouldn't be too perplexed as to why the rattlesnake bites little Johnny. It isn't because of Johnny's freedom or because he is good or any other kooky explanation. Sending out hoards of people to fight the rattlesnakes over there so we don't have to fight them over here is not the solution. The solution is to leave them alone and reprimand Johnny, although the latter would probably not be necessary since he has learned a valuable lesson on his own,

Trying to impose your will on another people is a sure-fire way to make enemies. Even if you have a benevolent intention – rarely the case – sending lots of armed men (usually boys) into another country is sure to cause trouble. Boys will be boys, and when they start drinking and fighting and whoring, the locals take a disliking to them and all who sent them.

Almost 2000 years ago, the Jews were preparing to celebrate the Feast of Unleavened Bread in Jerusalem when a smart-alecky Roman soldier mooned them and uttered some insulting remark which resulted in a riot. Soon after the "mooning" episode, another soldier tore up the Jewish Books Of The Law and threw them in the fire. As everybody knows, things went down hill from there with the Temple eventually being destroyed.

The lesson from this – or one of the lessons – is that people don't like foreigners coming into their country and pushing them around. This is something that Rick and Rudy and all others "in denial" should ponder.

Pope meeting with the board of directors of The Vatican Bank

Since 1871 the United States president and the United States Congress has been playing politics under a different set of rules and policies.  The American people do not know that there are two Constitutions in the United States.  The first penned by the leaders of the newly independent states of the United States in 1776.  On July 4, 1776, the people claimed their independence from Britain and Democracy was born.  And for 95 years the United States people were free and independent.  That freedom ended in 1871 when the original “Constitution for the united states for America” was changed to the “THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA”.

The Congress realized that the country was in dire financial straits, so they made  a financial deal with the devil – international bankers — (in those days, the Rothschilds of London ) thereby incurring a DEBT to said bankers.  The conniving international bankers were not about to lend the floundering nation any money without some serious stipulations. So, they devised a way of taking back control of the United States and thus, the Act of 1871 was passed.  With no constitutional authority to do so, Congress created a separate form of government for the District of Columbia.

With the passage of  “the Act of 1871” a city state (a state within a state) called the District of Columbia located on 10 sq miles of land in the heart of Washington was formed with its own flag and its own independent constitution – the United States’ secret second constitution.

 

The flag of Washington’s District of Columbia has 3 red stars, each symbolizing a city state within the three city empire. The three city empire consists of Washington D.C., London, and Vatican City. London is the corporate center of the three city states and controls the world economically. Washington’s District of Columbia city state is in charge of the military, and the Vatican controls it all under the guise of spiritual guidance.  Although geographically separate, the city states of London, the Vatican and the District of  Columbia are one interlocking empire called “Empire of the City”

The constitution for the District of Columbia operates under tyrannical Vatican law known as “Lex Fori” (local law). When congress passed the act of 1871 it created a separate corporation known as THE UNITED STATES and corporate government for the District of Columbia. This treasonous act has unlawfully allowed the District of Columbia to operate as a corporation outside the original constitution of the United States and in total disregard of the best interests of the American citizens.

 

POTUS Obama at the Vatican Corporate headquarters

POTUS is the Chief Executive (president) of the Corporation of the United States operating as any other CEO of the corporation — governs w/a Board of Directors (cabinet officials) and managers (Senators/Congress) Obama as others before him is POTUS — operating as “vassal king” taking orders once again from “The City of London” through the RIIA (Royal Institute of Intl Affairs).  The Illuminati (founded by the The Society of Jesus or Jesuits, the largest Roman Catholic Religious Military Order headed by the Black Pope) created the Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA) in 1919. The American equivalent to the RIIA is the Council of Foreign Relations (CFR). The RIIA and CFR set up Round Table Groups (based on the King Arthur myths).

What did the Act of 1871 achieve?  The ACT of 1871 put the United States back under British rule (which is under Vatican rule).  The United States people lost their independence in 1871.

THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is the constitution of the incorporated UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. It operates in an economic capacity and has been used to fool the People into thinking it governs the Republic. It does not! Capitalization is NOT insignificant when one is referring to a legal document. This seemingly “minor” alteration has had a major impact on every subsequent generation of Americans. What Congress did by passing the Act of 1871 was create an entirely new document, a constitution for the government of the District of Columbia, an INCORPORATED government.

Instead of having absolute and unalienable rights guaranteed under the organic Constitution, we the people now have “relative” rights or privileges. One example is the Sovereign’s right to travel, which has now been transformed (under corporate government policy) into a “privilege” that requires citizens to be licensed – driver’s licenses and Passports. By passing the Act of 1871, Congress committed TREASON against the People who were Sovereign under the grants and decrees of the Declaration of Independence and the organic Constitution.  The Act of 1871 became the FOUNDATION of all the treason since committed by government officials.

As of 1871 the United States isn’t a Country; It’s a Corporation! In preparation for stealing America, the puppets of Britain’s banking cabal had already created a second government, a Shadow Government designed to manage what “the people” believed was a democracy, but what really was an incorporated UNITED STATES. Together this chimera, this two-headed monster, disallowed “the people” all rights of sui juris. [you, in your sovereignty]

The U.S.A. is a Crown Colony. The U.S. has always been and remains a British Crown colony. King James I, is not just famous for translating the Bible into “The King James Version”, but for signing the “First Charter of Virginia” in 1606 — which granted America’s British forefathers license to settle and colonize America. The charter guaranteed future Kings/Queens of England would have sovereign authority over all citizens and colonized land in America.

After America declared independence from Great Britain, the Treaty of Paris, signed on September 3, 1783 was signed.  That treaty identifies the King of England as prince of U.S. “Prince George the Third, by the grace of God, king of Great Britain, France, and Ireland, defender of the faith, duke of Brunswick and Lunebourg, arch- treasurer and prince elector of the Holy Roman Empire etc., and of the United States of America“– completely contradicting premise that America won The War of Independence.

Article 5 of that treaty gave all British estates, rights and properties back to Britain.

It is agreed that Congress shall earnestly recommend it to the legislatures of the respective states to provide for the restitution of all estates, rights, and properties, which have been confiscated belonging to real British subjectsand also of the estates, rights, and properties of persons resident in districts in the possession on his Majesty’s arms and who have not borne arms against the said United States. And that persons of any other decription shall have free liberty to go to any part or parts of any of the thirteen United States and therein to remain twelve months unmolested in their endeavors to obtain the restitution of such of their estates, rights, and properties as may have been confiscated; and that Congress shall also earnestly recommend to the several states a reconsideration and revision of all acts or laws regarding the premises, so as to render the said laws or acts perfectly consistent not only with justice and equity but with that spirit of conciliation which on the return of the blessings of peace should universally prevail. And that Congress shall also earnestly recommend to the several states that the estates, rights, and properties, of such last mentioned persons shall be restored to them, they refunding to any persons who may be now in possession the bona fide price (where any has been given) which such persons may have paid on purchasing any of the said lands, rights, or properties since the confiscation.

And it is agreed that all persons who have any interest in confiscated lands, either by debts, marriage settlements, or otherwise, shall meet with no lawful impediment in the prosecution of their just rights.

It is becoming increasingly apparent to American citizens that government is no longer being conducted in accordance with the U.S. Constitution, or, within states, according to state constitutions. While people have recognized for more than 150 years that the rich and powerful often corrupt individual officials, or exert undue influence to get legislation passed that favors their interests, most Americans still cling to the naive belief that such corruption is exceptional, and that most of the institutions of society, the courts, the press, and law enforcement agencies, still largely comply with the Constitution and the law in important matters. They expect that these corrupting forces are disunited and in competition with one another, so that they tend to balance one another.

Mounting evidence makes it clear that the situation is far worse than most people think, that during the last several decades the U.S. Constitution has been effectively overthrown, and that it is now observed only as a façade to deceive and placate the masses. What has replaced it is what many call the Shadow Government – created with the illegal passing of the Act of 1871. It still, for the most part, operates in secret, because its control is not secure. The exposure of this regime and its operations must now become a primary duty of citizens who still believe in the Rule of Law and in the freedoms which this country is supposed to represent.

 

When the president takes the oath of office he is swearing to defend the Constitution of the District of Columbia, the INCORPORATED government. He isn’t promising to preserve, protect and defend the original Pennsylvania Constitution of 1776. See for yourself – “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” It doesn’t state – “Constitution for the United States of America” which was drafted for “We the People of the United States”.

It is for this reason that Obama never got a declaration of war from Congress for Libya. He didn’t need one. Under the corporation constitution, the Constitution of the United States, Obama is the CEO and master of his corporate domain called the United States. His loyalty is to the District of Columbia, an INCORPORATED government which is financially controlled by London and their Federal Reserve bankers, which is controlled by the Vatican. Obama is president of corporate America – looking out for its corporate interests.

 

When the International bankers (London) wanted more money they had their banks Goldmen Sachs and Bank of America (taken over by Bank of Italy in the 1920s) falsely declare $billions in  losses. The first ever GAO(Government Accountability Office) audit of the Federal Reserve revealed that London has received more than $16 trillion in U.S. funds under the guise of government bailouts. $16 trillion had been secretly given out to US banks and corporate interests and international bankers everywhere from Germany, Italy, France, Sweden, the UK, and Scotland. From the period between December 2007 and September 2011, the Federal Reserve had secretly laundered out over $16 trillion to international banks, corporations, and on the take governments.

If the American people want to know where their money went take a look at the Vatican. The Vatican bank is where most of that $16 trillion went to. Their vaults hold secret numbered accounts (Roman numerals of course) for George W Bush, Bill and Hillary Clinton, George HW Bush, Barack Hussein Obama, Timothy Geithner, Henry Paulson, Tony Blair, David Cameron, Nicolas Sarkozy, Angela Merkel (born Angela Dorothea Kasner). Look also at Citigroup – that bank is used to money launder $billions to the CIA (Knights of the Holy See) for arms dealing, drug trafficking and covert terrorist operations against the United States people – CIA code named al Qaeda. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner ignored President Barack Obama’s order to consider dissolving Citigroup because it is the CIA’s financial pipeline.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

By now you should have figured out that the treasurer is the stud duck in America and not Congress or POTUS, and he is working for the Pope. This is only one of several articles on this subject that I have been holding back on because most simply are not willing to believe so many people could have been hood-winked. The sad truth is, we have never been a free nation. I will address this in the near future, so try to open your minds.

(The following is an attempt to present in a compact form the alleged claims made by Dick Eastman, Tom Flocco, Vina K. Durham, Karl Schwarz and put together in an the article by E.P. Heidner dated 28th June 2008 to the effect that the September 11th attacks were intended to cover-up the clearing of the 1991 issuance of $240 billion in covert securities to fund an economic war against the Soviet Union during which "unknown" western investors bought up much of the Soviet industry. A crime presented by official sources as a "terrorist attack" and used as an excuse to attack Iraq.)


September 11

Initially the official designation of "terrorist attacks" made it difficult to discern a pattern. However if the destruction of the World Trade Centre, a segment of the Pentagon, four commercial aircraft and the loss of 2,993 lives is not considered as a "terrorist attack" but rather as a crime with specific objectives, there is a compelling logic to the pattern of destruction, not only of the buildings but of specific offices within each building.

If the attack on the Office of Naval Intelligence in the Pentagon was not random it is reasonable to assume that the planes that hit the World Trade Centre, and the bombs reported by various witnesses to have been set off inside the buildings 1, 6, 7, the basement of the Towers, the vault in the basement of the World Trade Centre were also deliberately targeted. Why? What was it that linked these targets? The destruction of the contents of the basement of the World Trade Centre – less than a billion in gold, but hundreds of billions of dollars of government securities? In addition why were specific brokers from the major government security brokerages in the Twin Towers eliminated? To create chaos in the government securities market? To create a situation wherein $240 billion dollars of covert securities could be electronically “cleared” without anyone asking questions? Which happened when the Federal Reserve declared an emergency and invoked its “emergency powers” that afternoon.

There were three major securities brokers in the World Trade Center: Cantor Fitzgerald, Eurobrokers and Garbon Inter Capital. On the morning of September 11, Flight 11 hit the North Tower at 8:46 right below the floors on which Cantor Fitzgerald was situated. Cantor Fitzgerald as the largest securities dealer in the US was probably the primary target. Shortly thereafter a massive explosion went off under the FBI offices in the North Tower on the 23rd floor, Garbon Inter Capital on the 25th floor, and in the basement of Tower 1. The explosion caused the 22nd through 25th floors above to collapse into an inferno. Fires were reported on the 22nd floor at 8:47. Shortly, thereafter, at 9:03, Flight 175 hit the South Tower right below the floors on which Euro Brokers was situated. In all three cases, the explosive, fiery destruction consumed the offices in the several floors above. At 9:37 Flight 77 hit the Pentagon, targeting one of the few offices that had been moved in the newly remodeled section of the Pentagon: the Office of Naval Intelligence, which had been investigating the financial transactions linked to the securities being managed by those security dealers in the World Trade Center that were targeted. 41% of the fatalities in the Twin Towers came from two companies that managed U.S. government securities: Cantor Fitzgerald and Eurobrokers. 31% of the 125 fatalities in the Pentagon were from the Naval Command Center that housed the Office of Naval Intelligence. 39 of 40 Office of Naval Intelligence employees died. In the vaults beneath the World Trade Center Towers, any certificates for bonds were destroyed.

Building 7 was evacuated somewhere between 9:00 and 9:30. Fires and explosions spontaneously began at multiple locations inside the building prior to the collapse of either Tower. This observation contradicts the official explanation that the fire started when objects from the collapsing towers caused the fires to ignite. The Building ultimately was destroyed in what many unofficial observers now believe was a controlled demolition. Building Seven housed several agencies critical to investigation of financial crimes.

In the midst of all this, Building 6 was destroyed by explosions from within. Building 6 was home to the U.S. Customs agency and the El Dorado Task force, which was responsible for coordinating all major money-laundering investigations in the U.S. In the immediate aftermath of September 11, these groups would be redirected to investigate terrorist financing.

The Office of Naval Intelligence in the Pentagon, which sustained a direct hit from an airliner that day, was without a doubt, a target pinpointed for destruction. The attacking aircraft went through intricate manoeuvres in order to hit the west side of the Pentagon, The flight path approach shows that the attacking aircraft passed almost directly over the White House, bypassing what should be considered a primary target for a "terrorist attack" instead of a supposedly empty section of the Pentagon. The planes that hit the South Tower also manoeuvered in the last moments to hit their exact target.

On the same day, (September 11) the Securities and Exchange Commission declared a national emergency and for the first time in U.S. history invoked its emergency powers under Securities Exchange Act Section 12(k) and eased regulatory restrictions for clearing and settling security trades for the next 15 days. These changes would allow an estimated $240 billion in covert government securities to be cleared upon maturity (September 12th) without the standard regulatory controls around identification of ownership.

While most media reports defer to the U.S. government contention that Osama Bin Laden was behind these attacks, foreign media provided reports suggesting that the “real power” behind Al Qaeda was unknown. As shall be seen, the financial power behind the attack is the same power that created these securities, and the same power as that which founded Al Qaeda.

The Background

In order to understand why the ongoing Federal investigations into the crimes funded by those securities needed to be ended or disrupted by destroying evidence in Buildings 6, 7 and 1, it is necessary to understand how the $240 billion in covert, and possibly illegal government funding, could have been created in September 1991 and also to know the background of 50 years of history of key financial organizations in the United States, where U.S. Intelligence became a key source of their off-balance sheet accounts.

The covert securities used to accomplish the original national security objective had ended up in the vaults of the brokers in the World Trade Centre, were destroyed on September 11, 2001, the day before they came due for settlement and clearing. Either a key group of senior National Security officials, who had participated in the victory of the economic cold war in 1991, considered the deaths and destruction as ‘collateral" damage to hide the existence of the covert activities or the destruction constituted a cover-up of continued lawlessness by a fraternity or brotherhood of businessmen and criminals that has remained in the shadows ever since.

The Origins of the World Trade Centre Attack

Most historians track the history of September 11th to 1998 when Osama Bin Laden declared a fatwa or jihad against the U.S., and the terrorist “Hamburg Group” led by Mohammed Atta reportedly “offered” it’s services to Al Qaeda. However, the history which defines the motives for the September 11 attacks goes much further back. The answers to the questions surrounding the cause of the WTC attack will be found in events during the presidency of George H.W. Bush and earlier. Insight into the activities of that period are cloaked by the Executive Order of George H.W. Bush’s son, President George W. Bush, who on November 1, 2001 issued Executive Order 13233. As a result public records which might have shed light on the activities of 1990 and 1991 remain shielded from public access. Consequently the reconstruction of events from the late 1980s and early 1990s is based on news reports, books and articles.

What the public record suggests is that with the beginning of the first Bush Presidency in 1989, George H.W. Bush initiated a programme of covert economic warfare to bring about the collapse of the Soviet Union. The name of this programme appears to be Project Hammer – a multi-billion dollar covert operation, whose investments remain shielded.

There is reason to believe that the plan was initially formulated by Reagan’s CIA Director, William Casey. Many of the programme operatives were probably engaged through official CIA and National Security channels. However, as a result of the experience gained by the Bush cabinet and its private sector counterparts during the secretive Iran-Contra and Ferdinand Marcos gold operations, the execution of that programme would be accompanied by a new assumption that the use of covert and illegal funding for a policy not approved by Congress would remain acceptable.

The Source of the Funds

Numerous sources have documented that at the end of World War II, the treasury of the Japanese Empire was discovered in the Philippines by Edward Lansdale a member of the staff of General Charles Willoughby, who was General MacArthur’s chief of Intelligence. Lansdale and Severino Garcia Diaz Santa Romana tortured Major Kojima Kashii, General Yamashita Tomoyuki’s driver, until he revealed the sites of the gold. Then known as the "Golden Lily Treasure", this mass of wealth had been accumulated by the Japanese over fifty years from the pillaging of Southeast Asia and China by its army and had been deposited in the Philippines due to the U.S. submarine blockade of Japan. Reports vary, but documents in the public domain suggest the recovered treasure was in excess of 280,000 metric tonnes of gold.

Lansdale briefed Assistant Secretary of War John J. McCloy about the findings, and a U.S. Cabinet-level decision was made to confiscate the gold and cover-up its discovery. The gold would be added to the Black Eagle Trust fund which took its name from the Nazi Black Eagle stamped on the gold bars confiscated from the Reich and was the original source of funding for the trust. Over the years, the significance of the Nazi gold would pale in comparison to the confiscated Japanese treasure. As the fund grew, it was distributed in private accounts across the globe in over 100 banks, and administered by General Earle Cocke.

Lansdale and Santa Romana were made responsible for recovery of the treasure. They fabricated a “Communist Revolution” by the Hukbalahak rebels in order to confiscate the land where much of the gold was buried, and proceeded to mine it.

The Yamashita gold would become the cornerstone of the Black Eagle Fund, from which many covert operations of the U.S. intelligence would be funded. Under international law the gold should have been either returned to the countries from which it was stolen (as was done with the Nazi gold), or should have been incorporated into the U.S. Treasury. The U.S. Government’s continued efforts to stifle news on this matter provides prima facie evidence that the confiscation of this gold was illegal.

The men responsible for initiating and executing the confiscation of Nazi and Japanese treasury gold represent the most senior Intelligence officers in the U.S. and Britain at the end of World War II, and the Cabinet of the President of the United States. The financial institutions represented by these individuals would become the major financial banks in the world, along with the Swiss-German banks where they hid their gold.

Lansdale’s operation in the Philippines gave birth to most of the common features of modern covert operations for the U.S.Intelligence and initiated a bond between the US intelligence organizations and the Israeli intelligence. He also set precedents for the Intelligence community to retain the services of organized crime on U.S. soil and to use drug running as a way of financing activities,

The covert operations funded by the Black Eagle Trust in the 1960s and 1970s became visible stains on the global image of the U.S. despite all efforts to keep them under cover. In an effort to clean house, President Jimmy Carter would order the retirement of over 800 covert operatives. Many of these operatives would move into private consulting and security firms and be employed as subcontractors for covert operations. Thus began a loose association of private operatives that would be referred to as “the Enterprise” in the years to come. George H.W. Bush, having been CIA Director, had many acquaintances in this group, and would work with them to restore their influence and control over U.S. foreign policy and the foreign investment opportunities it created for their benefit.

Meantime Ferdinand Marcos, the pro-U.S. dictator of the Philippines, continued to discover even more of the buried treasure. and had started to sell it on the market during the 1970s with the assistance of Adnan Khashoggi. US Intelligence operations had been siphoning off the gold for three decades. However in 1986 Vice President George Bush took over the gold from Marcos and the gold was removed to a series of banks, notably Citibank, Chase Manhattan, Hong Kong Shanghai Banking Corporation, UBS and Banker’s Trust, and held in a depository in Kloten Switzerland. What happened to the Marcos gold after it was confiscated by U.S. agents in 1986 has never been reported, but throughout the early 1990s, the world gold market would be befuddled by the mysterious appearance of thousands of tonnes of gold which appeared to suppress the price of gold.

In South east Asia operations were financed through Nugan Hand Bank in Australia which would be one of the many banks used for transferring the Marcos gold from the Philippines into covert operations. Frank Nugan’s family ran the primary supply shipping operation between the U.S. Navy base in the Philippines and Australia. Frank Nugan's business partner, Peter Abeles, and Henry Keswick, together with Canadian businessman Peter Munk, would link with Adnan Kashoggi, Sheikh Kamal and Edgar Bronfmann in a series of operations which ultimately would evolve into Barrick Gold.

In 1992, George H.W. Bush served on the Advisory Board of Barrick Gold. The Barrick operation would create billions of dollars of paper gold by creating ‘gold derivatives’. A major distribution channel for the sale of Barrick’s gold futures would be Enron. Enron would also become the vehicle by which oil and gas contracts from the former Soviet Union (vehicles for Soviet money-laundering) were processed. Barrick, which has no mining operations in Europe, used two refineries in Switzerland: MKS Finance S.A. and Argor-Heraeus S.A. – both on the Italian border near Milan, a few hours away from the gold depository in Zurich. The question that Barrick and other banks needed to avoid answering is: what gold was Barrick refining in Switzerland, as they have no mines in that region?

Barrick would become a quiet gold producing partner for a number of major banks, and its activities became subject to an FBI investigation into gold-price-fixing. The records on this investigation were kept in the FBI office on the 23rd floor of the North Tower which was destroyed by bomb blasts shortly before the Tower collapsed. The ultimate destination of the "Golden Lily Treasure", and the source of the ‘loaned’ gold that flooded the market for 10 years has never been officially explained.

The records of many of those transactions disappeared when Enron collapsed and the trading operation and all its records were taken over by UBS, another major recipient of Marcos gold. The FBI was reportedly conducting an investigation into those transactions, and the investigation files were kept on the 23rd floor of the North Tower of the WTC. A review of the personal accounts of September 11 now suggests that office was deliberately targeted with explosives prior to the collapse of the WTC.

Another key player in the Marcos gold was Banker’s Trust, which was taken over by Alex Brown & Sons, after Banker’s Trust floundered financially on its Russian loans in the mid 1990s. These Russian loans were facilitated by Enron, starting in August of 1993, and very possibly were part of the Project Hammer takeover of Soviet industry.

Amongst those brought into the picture by the involvement of Alex Brown was J. Carter Beese who was Executive Director of the CIA at the time of September 11. He was appointed by George H.W. Bush to the board of directors of the Overseas Private Investment Corporation in 1992. Since 1992, OPIC has provided more than $4.5 billion in finance and insurance to more than 140 projects in Russia. He was also Chairman of Riggs Bank and also President of Riggs Capital Partners. Riggs controlled the famous Riggs-Valmet consultants who set up the international financial apparatus for the Russian oligarchs and rogue KGB allowing them to steal the Soviet treasury and destroy the Russian economy. Carter Beese’s death was reported as a suicide in 2006.

It appears that in September 1991, George H.W. Bush and Alan Greenspan did indeed finance $240 billion in bonds in a buy-out of the Soviet Union as part of a broader programme to attack the economy of the Soviet Union. In addition President George H.W. Bush had initiated a number of related covert operations to take over certain sectors of the Soviet economy,

The covert business dealings with the Iranians and Israelis which originated with Kashoggi and Kimche in July 1980 in Hamburg under the October Surprise arrangement, would provide an opening to the Soviet KGB that would allow the U.S. to fund a coup against Gorbachev in 1991. It would grow into a larger covert operation over the years, and be overshadowed by the larger Iran-Contra operation. Members of Bush’s covert intelligence cadre sold weapons to Iran, an avowed enemy of the U.S., and illegally used the profits to continue funding anti-Communist rebels, the Contras, in Nicaragua.

The entire Iran-Contra operation almost fell apart in 1986 and became public when the Nicaraguan government shot down a U.S. plane carrying weapons to the Contra rebels However the Iran-Contra team continued to violate the law even while being investigated by Congress.

Emboldened by the lack of consequences for subverting the U.S. constitution and breaking international law during the Iran-Contra scandal, the Bush administration group known as “the Vulcans” planned a bigger drive to crush Soviet Russia.

The programme also seems to have lined the pockets of the individuals that executed this policy, at US taxpayer expense. This was done to the tune of the $240 billion dollars in covert and allegedly illegal bonds, which appear to have been replaced with Treasury notes backed by U.S. taxpayers in the aftermath of September 11.

The Vulcan’s Covert Economic War on the Soviet Union

In 1988, Riggs Bank, under the direction of Jonathan Bush and J Carter Beese, would purchase controlling interest in a Swiss company named Valmet. In early 1989, the new subsidiary of Riggs called Riggs-Valmet would initiate contact with a group of KGB officers and their front-men to start setting up an international network for moving money out of the former Soviet block countries.

In the first phase of the economic attack on the Soviet Union, George Bush authorized Leo Wanta and others to destabilize the ruble and facilitate the theft of the Soviet/Russian treasury. This would result in draining the Russian treasury of between 2,000 to 3,000 tonnes of gold bullion, ($35 billion at the time). This step would prevent a monetary defence of the ruble and thus destabilize the currency. The gold was ‘released to Singapore’ in March of 1991, as facilitated and purchased by Leo Wanta, and signed off by Boris Yeltsin’s right hand man. The majority of the leaked reports from the CIA and FBI suggest the theft of the Russian treasury was a KGB and Communist party operation, but what those reports omitted was the extensive involvement of Boris Yeltsin, the U.S. CIA and the U.S. banking industry.

In November 1989 George H.W. Bush appears to have arranged for Alton G. Keel Jr, a minor player in the Iran-Contra scandal to go to work at Riggs Bank, which would become the controlling owner of a small Swiss bank operation known as Valmet. The Riggs-Valmet operation, would become the ‘consultants’ to the World Bank and to several KGB front operations run by future Russian oligarchs Khordokovsky, Konanykhine, Berezovsky and Abromovich. These soon-to-be Russian oligarchs had been set-up as front men by KGB Generals Aleksey (Alexei) Kondaurov; and Fillipp Bobkov, who previously reported to Victor Cherbrikov, who worked with Robert Maxwell, a British financial mogul, an Israeli secret service agent, and a representative of U.S. intelligence interests, who had been introduced to George Bush in 1976 by Senator Tower for the sole purpose of using Maxwell as an intermediary between Bush and the Soviet Intelligence. Maxwell assisted Cherbrikov in selling military weaponry to Iran and the Nicaraguan Contras during the course of the Iran Contra deals, and made hundreds of millions of dollars available to Cherbrikov’s Russian banks. These two would bring a previously unknown politician and construction foreman named Boris Yeltsin from the hinterlands of Russia to the forefront of Russian politics through providing 50% of Yeltsin’s campaign funding.

In the second phase, there were two major operations: the largest was coordinated by Alan Greenspan, Oliver North, and implemented by Leo Wanta, George Soros and a group of Bush appointees who began to destabilize the ruble. They are accused of fronting $240 billion in covert securities to support the various aspects of this plan.These bonds were created (in part or in whole) from a secretive Durham Trust, managed by ex-OSS/CIA officer, Colonel Russell Hermann. This war chest had been created with the Marcos gold.

Shortly before the attempted coup of 1991, Maxwell met Kruchkov on Maxwell’s private yacht. Shortly afterwards, Maxwell died mysteriously on his yacht while Senator Tower died in a plane crash under suspicious circumstances in April of 1991.

In the meantime, Riggs Bank was quickly solidifying banking relations with two of the old Iran-Contra scandal participants: Swiss bankers Bruce Rappaport, and Alfred Hartmann. Through this group George Soros opened a second front assault on the ruble. It is at this stage of the operation that three more groups would be brought into the plan by Rappaport and Hartmann: The Russian Mafiya, the Israeli Mossad, and the Rothschild family interests represented by Jacob Rothschild.

Soros and Rappaport would ensure that the Rothschild financial interests would be the silent backers for a number of the undisclosed deals. The Rothschild interests would also be seen on the board of directors of Barrick Gold.

In the fourth phase of the secret war, the Enterprise worked on several fronts to take over key energy industries. On the Caspian front of this economic war, James Giffen was sent to Kazakhstan to work with President Nazarbayev in various legal and illegal efforts to gain control of what was estimated to be the world’s largest untapped oil reserves – Kazak oil in the Caspian. The illegal flow of money from the various oil companies would reach a number of banks. These same oil interests would engage March Rich and the Israeli Eisenberg Group, owned by one of the Mossad’s key operatives, Shaul Eisenberg, to move the oil. (The Eisenberg Group would at some point own almost 50% of Zim Shipping, which mysteriously and inexplicably moved out of the World Trade Center a few weeks before the September 11 attacks.)

Like the other events linked with Project Hammer, the coup was all about the money. The coup began the dissolution of the Soviet Union and the beginning of the reign of Boris Yeltsin and his ‘family’ of Russian Mafiya Oligarchs, and President Nursultan Nazarbayev of Kazakhstan. In the final phase, a series of operatives assigned by President George H.W. Bush would begin the takeover of prized Russian and CIS industrial assets in oil, metals and defence. This was done by financing and managing the money-laundering for the Russian oligarchs through the Bank of New York, AEB and Riggs Bank.

A closer look at other activities leading up to these phases makes it clear that is was a U.S. orchestrated intelligence effort from the beginning. The economic war involved Gerald Corrigan of the NY Federal Reserve Bank, George Soros, an international currency speculator who was responsible for crashing the British pound a few years earlier, former Ambassador to Germany R. Mark Palmer, and Ronald Lauder-financier and heir to the Estee Lauder estate. Palmer and Lauder would lead a group of American investors in an Operation called the Central European Development Corporation, and combine forces with George Soros and the NM Rothschild Continuation Trust. This group ending up controlling Gazprom, the Russian natural gas giant, while the Riggs group ended up controlling Yukos, the oil giant. Ownership for both remains largely ‘hidden’ today, while its front men endure the hardships of the Russian wrath by spending time in prison.

Meanwhile, across the Caspian Sea, Bush had assigned a wide array of former Iran-Contra operatives to take a role in Azerbaijan. Initially, he sent in the covert operatives Richard Armitage and Richard Secord who worked with their old colleague from the Mossad, David Kimche, and their old arms running colleagues Adnan Kashoggi and Farhad Azima to hire, transport, and train several thousand Al Qaeda mercenaries to fight on behalf of the Azeri freedom fighters! Osama Bin Laden was reported to have been part of this mercenary force.

The September 11th Cover-up of the Black Eagle Trust and Project Hammer

Ten years later in 2001, these programmes had finally come back to haunt the U.S. policy makers. Most, if not all of these programmes appear to have stepped outside of the boundaries of the law. As a result, investigative agencies from Britain, Switzerland, Russia, Kazakhstan and the Philippines were putting pressure on Congress and the U.S. Department of Justice to open up the accounts in the banks used to finance these covert activities. Pressure was being put on the Swiss banking cartel to open its bullion records to public scrutiny. Full disclosure by these banks during an investigation would have resulted in a major exposure of U.S. Government complicity in some of the greatest financial frauds of the 1980s and early 1990s as well as 50 years of gold bullion theft by numerous U.S. and British government agencies. Moreover, investigation into these accounts would disclose a National Security secret known as the Black Eagle fund, and virtually every covert operation since World War II. Bringing an end to these investigations and preventing this disclosure was the sole objective for the destruction of the WTC and Pentagon.

These investigative and legal pressures began to accumulate in 1997, and in February 1998, Osama Bin Laden declared his fatwa, and Atta started planning the September 11 attacks.

With the bonds out in the market, they had sat for ten years, like a ticking time bomb. At some point, they had to be settled – or cashed in, on September 12, 2001. The two firms in the U.S. most likely to be handling them would be Cantor Fitzgerald and Eurobrokers – the two largest government securities firms in the U.S. The federal agency mostly involved in investigating those transactions was the Office of Naval Intelligence. On September 11 those same three organizations: the two largest government securities brokers and the Office of Naval Intelligence in the US took near direct hits.

What happened inside the buildings of the World Trade on September 11 is difficult, but not impossible to discern. The government has put a seal on the testimony gathered by the investigating 911 Commission, and instructed government employees to not speak on the matter or suffer severe penalties, but there are a number of personal testimonies posted on the internet as to what happened in those buildings that day. Careful reconstruction from those testimonies indicates the deliberate destruction of evidence not only by a targeted assault on the buildings, but also by targeted fires and explosions. In the event that either the hijacking failed, or the buildings were not brought down, the evidence would be destroyed by fires.

Even more revealing would be the actions of the Federal Reserve Bank and the Securities and Exchange Commission on that day, and in the immediate aftermath. As one of many coincidences on September 11, the Federal Reserve Bank was operating its information system from its remote back-up site rather than it’s downtown headquarters. The SEC and Federal Reserve system remained unfazed by the attack on September 11. All of their systems continued to operate. The two major security trading firms had their trade data backed up on remote systems. Nevertheless, the Commission for the first time invoked its emergency powers under Securities Exchange Act Section 12(k) and issued several orders to ease certain regulatory restrictions temporarily.

On the first day of the crisis, the SEC lifted “Rule 15c3-3 -Customer Protection–Reserves and Custody of Securities,” which set trading rules for the certain processes. Simply GSCC was allowed to substitute securities for the physical securities destroyed during the attack.

Subsequent to that ruling, the GSCC issued another memo expanding blind broker settlements. A “blind broker” is a mechanism for inter-dealer transactions that maintains the anonymity of both parties to the trade. The broker serves as the agent to the principals' transactions.

Thus the Federal Reserve and its GSCC had created a settlement environment totally void of controls and reporting – where it could substitute valid, new government securities for the mature, illegal securities, and not have to record where the bad securities came from, or where the new securities went – all because the paper for the primary brokers for US securities had been eliminated.

This act alone, however was inadequate to resolve the problem, because the Federal Reserve did not have enough “takers” of the new 10 year notes. Rather than simply having to match buy and sell orders, which was the essence of resolving the “fail” problem, it appears the Fed was doing more than just matching and balancing – it was pushing new notes on the market with a special auction.

If the Federal Reserve had to cover-up the clearance of $240 Billion in covert securities, they could not let the volume of capital shrink by that much in the time of a monetary crisis. They would have had to push excess liquidity into the market, and then phase it out for a soft landing, which is exactly what appears to have happened. In about two months, the money supply was back to where it was prior to 9/11.

It was the rapid rotation of the securities settlement fails in the aftermath of September 11th that appears to have allowed the Bank of New York and the Federal Reserve to engage in a securities refinancing that resulted in the American taxpayer refinancing the $240 billion originally used for the Great Ruble Scam.

The reports published by the Federal Reserve argue that the Federal Reserve’s actions increasing the monetary supply by over $300 billion were justified to overcome operational difficulties in the financial sector.

What appears to be the case is that the Federal Reserve imbalances reported on three consecutive days in the aftermath were largely concentrated at the Bank of New York, which is reported to represent over 90% of the imbalance, suggesting the Bank had been the recipient of massive fund transfers, and unable to send out transfers.This supposedly was due to major communication and system failures.In fact, none of the Bank of New York's systems failed or went non-operational.

The Wall Street Journal reported:

"There is every reason to believe activities in the Bank of New York in the aftermath of September 11th are worthy of suspicion….. At one point during the week after September 11, the Bank of New York publicly reported to be overdue on $100 billion in payments.”

It suggests that certain key unknown figures in the Federal Reserve may have been in collusion with key unknown figures at the Bank of New York to create a situation where $240 billion in off balance sheet securities created in 1991 as part of an official covert operation to overthrow the Soviet Union, could be cleared without publicly acknowledging their existence.These securities, originally managed by Cantor Fitzgerald, were cleared and settled in the aftermath of September 11th through the Bank of New York. The $100 billion account balance bubble reported by the Wall Street Journal as being experienced by the Bank of New York was the tip of a three-day operation, when these securities were moved from off-balance-sheet to the balance sheet.

The above gives an idea of the intricate activities both to perpetrate and then to cover the crime, which was then used under its "terrorist attack" label as an excuse for the attack on Iraq.

New Crisis, New Currency?

Friday, September 23, 2011 – by Staff Report

 

David Cameron: world on brink of new economic crisis … The world stands on the brink of a new economic crisis that would leave countries like Britain "staring down the barrel," David Cameron has warned … David Cameron said that Western politicians must show more 'leadership.' …The Prime Minister said that the failure of leaders in the US and Europe to tackle government deficits now "threatens the stability of the world economy." – UK Telegraph

Dominant Social Theme: The economic crisis is grave indeed. Perhaps what is needed is a new currency.

Free-Market Analysis: David Cameron joined a number of other prominent leaders in warning about the perilous state of the West's and the world's economy. At the same time, we learn, French President Nicolas Sarkozy is pushing US President Barack Obama to support adding the Chinese yuan to the IMF's SDR basket. SDRs have been suggested as a potential new, global currency that could take over from the sputtering dollar.

Something certainly needs to be done, we are told. The economic news is grim and Cameron's speech was triggered by yesterday's market drop, which saw stocks fall around the world. The FTSE-100 took its biggest drop in more than two years. The Dow was down some four percent. The West's largest economies are toppling back into recession, according to Cameron and others.

What does Cameron want? The Telegraph article tells us he spoke in Canada, "after delivering a blunt warning to President Barack Obama and eurozone leaders about the need to follow Britain's example and curb their deficits."

So perhaps, in part, this is about more "austerity measures." Western governments must raise taxes, cut spending, reduce public employment and sell off prime assets. This is the IMF approach, and presumably when Cameron warns about government profligacy, he has in mind a range of IMF solutions. More from the article:

"Barriers to action are now political as much as economic," Mr Cameron wrote in an open letter. "We must send a clear signal that we are ready to take the actions necessary to maintain growth and stability for all for the future." In the letter, signed by leaders from Australia, Canada, Indonesia, Mexico and South Korea, Mr Cameron implicitly criticised US and eurozone governments for not doing more to reduce budget deficits …

Eurozone governments must "act swiftly" to restore markets' confidence in the single currency and struggling countries like Greece. All European economies "must confront the debt overhang to prevent contagion to the wider global economy". Mr Cameron's warning was echoed in Washington at a meeting of the International Monetary Fund.

"The current economic situation is entering a dangerous phase," said Christine Lagarde, the fund's managing director. Robert Zoellick of the World Bank also said that the world economy is now "in the danger zone". Both warned that the world is facing a prolonged crisis unless leaders can find the "political determination" to set the recovery back on track.

When the world's leaders begin to warn of something in concert, we try to peer beneath the surface to see what they are really driving at. Austerity – the grinding down of the West's middle class – is one aspect of it, perhaps. But the installation of a global currency is perhaps another. Problem … solution. Thesis … antithesis.

Since we are morbidly suspicious of the financial crisis in the first place, we continue to look for ways that the elites try to take advantage of it to suggest further globalization. Sure enough, we came on this article over at Bloomberg: "Sarkozy Told Obama China's Yuan Should Be in SDR Basket."

According to the article, Sarkozy told President Barack Obama that the yuan should be included in the International Monetary Fund's Special Drawing Rights system. A "French presidential official" revealed the conversation. Placing the yuan in the SDR basket is supposedly a goal of Sarkozy's while France leads the Group of 20 for a year.

Sarkozy is anxious to have the yuan included in a global basket of currencies, but the article tells us that some Chinese officials are less enthused. "Last month Chinese central bank Deputy Governor Yi Gang said the yuan shouldn't rush to join the IMF's currency basket, according to a commentary he wrote in the Caixin Century magazine."

Still, there are other Chinese officials who support the idea. "People's Bank of China Governor Zhou Xiaochuan, floated the idea in 2009 of a new international reserve currency based on the SDR to replace the US dollar."

The great central-banking families that are trying to move the world toward global governance would like nothing better than to create a world currency. And perhaps the current economic crisis is providing them with that opportunity. Out of chaos … order.

We can see, perhaps, two emergent strands intersecting as the world's political leaders – who basically carry water for the elite banking families – try to propose evermore Draconian and globalist solutions. First, as we mentioned above, is increased austerity and the second is a global currency.

It has occurred to us, as well, that the powers-that-be miscalculated with this latest downturn. The scope is huge and the economic slump is deep. While in another era it might be easy for the elites to utilize such a crisis to their advantage, the Internet itself is likely making this sort of manipulation more difficult.

We see a kind of Internet Reformation taking shape around the world that is countering the globalist trends of theAnglosphere power elite. Things will likely get much worse before they get better, but the rising consciousness about the way the world REALLY works means that solutions meant to be implemented from the top down will likely be put in place with a good deal more difficulty.

Something is going on. When Western world leaders speak with one voice about "crises" that must be dealt with by concerted action, we immediately look for solutions with an internationalist focus. Austerity programs further damage already reeling middle classes and an expansion of SDRs via the Chinese yuan makes a global currency more feasible, theoretically anyway.

Conclusion: There are probably other ways that the elites will try to utilize this unwinding international depression to their advantage. In fact, it may be to their advantage to continually aggravate it. One thing we are sure of. Whatever solutions are proposed at the top will benefit the powers-that-be and their agendas first of all. Despite the rhetoric, the billions struggling with this economic crisis are merely an afterthought, or even worse – an enemy.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

Those of you who have been following my articles know I have stated over two years ago, there is only one way for the world to avoid complete and ever lasting economic slavery to the International Bankers, and that is to have our governments military to arrest, convict, and annihilate the International banking families. Nothing has changed except their continuous increase in power over the worlds currency’s, and their pursuit of a single global currency. To the uninformed this objective may sound like a good idea, but if it had any benefit to anyone besides enabling the Bankers TO HAVE COMPLETE GLOBAL POWER OF THE MEANS OF ACCOMPLISHING COMMERCE, why did they have to resort to devaluing nations currency’s?
