ANNOUNCING THE BIRTH OF THE I.B.B.

June 16th, 2011 by

 

THE

INTERNATIONAL BANKERS BOUNTY

By OldDog

No, I am not suicidal, even though I would personally love to rip their hearts out with my bare hands; this BOUNTY is not a reward for their dead bodies, even though they deserve it. As a matter of fact, it is a little more complicated than the simple act of ending their miserable life.

 

I propose that every red blooded American reach deep down in their pockets and contribute one weeks salary to the I.B.B. for the entrapment of the bankers, by financing a group of researchers, detectives, and lawyers, to hound every move they have made in their miserable life, and compile enough evidence to indict them on charges of conspiracy to murder America. Is that not a crime against humanity? Is that not a HATE CRIME? We need to eliminate their entire bloodline.

 

This is not a penny-pinching project as the goal is

 

ONE BILLION U.S. DOLLARS

 

TO BE SPLIT BY THE ENTIRE TEEM.

 

Do the math folks, it will not take that many people to finance this.

 

Surely, there are enough Americas left working to afford only 1/52 of their yearly income, if the benefit is the elimination of these vampires.

 

The bottom line of our problem is MONEY. We cannot depend on their employees in D.C. to indict them, or even talk back to them, and MONEY seems to be the ONLY thing people give a crap about, so let’s build a war chest to bury these Bastards and free up the worlds countries to rebuild their economy’s with the confiscated assets of the INTERNATIONAL BANKSTERS. THAT WILL PUT THE N.G.O.s, AND THE MULTINATIONAL MONOPOLISTIC CORPORATIONS BETWEEN A ROCK AND A NOOSE. That will devastate their stock value world wide, and the assholes that profit from their stocks will have to go back to work. After the bankers and their corporations are eliminated, we can rebuild America with the knowledge we have accumulated from this cluster fuck.

 

Believe me folks there are many times more than enough scalpers in the legal profession to construct a justifiable case against these scumbags, and all we have to do is MAKE IT WORTH THEIR WHILE.

 

Another thing you can believe is, this old man is not delusional enough to think I am intellectually prepared to finish the design of my epiphany, so I am soliciting the help of those who are much better equipped than I am.

 

Contact Olddog@anationbeguiled.com

 

Take this epiphany, redesign, and expand it until it is comprehensible and acceptable to the masses, other wise bend over and kiss everyone’s ass goodbye.

 

For those who think this is a despicable idea, kiss my nasty old ass, and go suck up to your present hero politician, and, tell your apostate pastors to do the same. We the people have been subjugated by the bankers long enough, and the time of retribution is at hand.

If you are wondering what pissed me off so bad, read the article below, and it is not by any means a one time event, but it confirms my feeling of being embarrassed to be an American. What the hell has happened to this country, that cannot be attributed to the slow and consistent social disintegration from being manipulated by the international bankers control of every facet of our lives.

 

Read it and weep!

'You Can No Longer Think of Yourselves as Peace Officers': Militarizing 'Lockdown High'

by William Norman Grigg

Recently by William Norman Grigg: They Do This Every Week: Clarence Dupnik’s Death Squad

[]

 
 

It was Friday the 13th, and Skylar Walters thought he was going to die.

The 16-year-old inmate of Orangeville Jr.-Sr. High in Illinois was in gym class when a deranged-looking man barged into the school and began firing what appeared to be a handgun at several of the other students.

"I started praying to God and saying my last words," Skylar later recalled. "I was scared. I didn't know what to do."

As the intruder fired his gun, he called out the name of a particular student; the youngster quite sensibly fled the building. Other kids "were just running everywhere and crying and hiding," Skylar recounted. Some of the panicking schoolkids probably attempted to call or text their parents to describe the horror unfolding in front of them. They didn't know that each of the parents had been instructed not to answer if his child issued a desperate plea for help.

That last sadistic touch is what distinguished the May 13 "active shooter drill" in Orangeville from countless other performances of its kindstaged in schools across the Soyuz by the Police State Play Actors' Guild. Most of the time, the kids for whose supposed benefit those drills are choreographed – and the parents responsible for their care, education, and upbringing – are let in on the joke.

Last October 10, for example, a mob of "between 80 and 100 officials" from law enforcement agencies staged a little Garrison State melodrama in New York's William H. Barton Intermediate School. As described in the Glens Falls Post-Star:

"Fire alarms sounded at 9:31 a.m., drawing closed doors. Three Warren County sheriff's officers and two state troopers conducted the first search, where they encountered students in a hallway and instructed them to sit down. They reached a second floor on a north wing of the school and found several bodies laying across the hallway. Police searched the classrooms, bathrooms and even an elevator, pressing their backs against walls before entering rooms and calling out `clear.' A cafeteria was secured as a transfer point for victims with casualties, and a triage site for patient evaluation was at a nearby school."

In that exercise, students – some of them in grade school – were recruited to play "victims." One of them was the third-grade daughter of Heather Holl, who was herself cast as a "victim" in the third trimester of pregnancy. Another bit player, Heather's son Alexander, "played the role of a gunshot victim" with an entry wound in his chest and a large exit wound in the back.

It should be pointed out that the tactics employed in the "active shooter" scenario at the William H. Barton School focused on officer safety, rather than active intervention on behalf of the victims. In real life, Alexander Holl would have been one of several unarmed, helpless schoolchildren killed while the SWAT team – encased in body armor and brandishing high-performance weaponry – took exquisite care to minimize its exposure to risk.

"He's excited," Heather commented as her son was transported away from the scene by medical personnel. "He didn't even sleep last night."

At least he was given a copy of the script before the staged shooting began. The students who were deprived of that indispensable intelligence in Orangeville most likely aren't sleeping well now – not because they're full of eager anticipation, but rather because they suffer from post-traumatic stress.

Parents were required to participate passively in the scenario played out in Orangeville: They weren't informed about the event until curtain time, and then ordered to participate in an information embargo targeting their terrified kids.

What this means, of course, is that although the disguised deputy playing the role of assailant was firing blanks, the schoolkids were, quite literally, being held hostage.

If a bank robber bluffs his way through a heist with a toy gun, he's committed a real crime. The same is true of the people who terrorized the inmates of Orangeville Jr.-Sr. High on May 13. School District Superintendent Randy Otto has submitted his resignation, and some parents have discussed the possibility of a lawsuit – but the appropriate criminal charges against those responsible aren't forthcoming.

"Our number one goal is to save lives," warbled Leigh Anne Ryals, Emergency Management Director for Baldwin County, Florida, following a similar school shooter drill in Robertsdale's Central Baldwin Middle School a few years ago. The means such drills employ are incompatible with that goal, since the standard template is based on the "Lockdown" Scenario: The killers conduct the rampage on their own terms, end it at a time of their choosing, and the SWAT team merely cattle-pens the victims.

*EMBEDDED VIDEO*************

Like every other "security" measure inflicted on Americans since 9/11, the "lockdown" scenario treats schoolchildren as a tactical impediment – or perhaps even a threat – to be dealt with, rather than as innocent people to be protected. That model was actually put in place before 9/11 – even before Columbine – as part of the federal "Safe Schools" dogma that grew out of the Regime's narcotics price support program (sometimes dishonestly called the "War on Drugs").

Today it is typical for police agencies to deploy "Resource Officers" to prowl the halls of schools in search of misbehavior that can be treated as criminal offenses, rather than disciplinary problems.

In his keynote address to the 2007 National Association of School Resources Conference, held against the rugged and forbidding backdrop of Orlando's Disney World, self-styled tactical and counter-terrorism John Giduck offered a telling glimpse into the mindset of the armed strangers who haunt local government schools:

"You've got to be a one-man fighting force…. You've got to have enough guns, and ammunition and body armor to stay alive…. You should be walking around in schools every day in complete tactical equipment, with semi-automatic weapons…. You can no longer afford to think of yourselves as peace officers…. You must think of yourself [sic] as soldiers in a war because we're going to ask you to act like soldiers." (Emphasis added.)

In her immensely informative and tirelessly infuriating new book Lockdown High: When The Schoolhouse becomes a Jailhouse, investigative reporter Annette Fuentes describes Giduck's audience as "a sea of khaki uniforms, some [of whom in the crowd] were waring holstered handguns…. [M]ore than a few had shaved heads and bulging bellies or biceps. Some had both. If drug tests had been required for registration, odds are that a few steroid-positives could have resulted among the more muscular attendees."

Giduck himself has appointed himself an authority on the tactics and training of special forces despite a resume untainted by actual experience in the same. In similar fashion Giduck advertises himself as a world-caliber authority on radical Islam and counter-terrorism: He claims to have been tutored in counter-terrorism by "Putin's boss," the former head of the KGB, and to have trained with Soviet-era special forces, during a visit to Russia in the late Gorbachev era. Assuming that Giduck is telling the truth, that line on his vita should summarily disqualify him from having anything to do with children anywhere.

Whatever proves to be the truth about Giduck's claims, he is a prominent figure among the cohort Fuentes calls the "Profiteers of Lockdown High" – an interlocking collection of governmental and quasi-private bureaucracies committed to eradicating the few substantive distinctions separating schools from prisons.

"Every day in communities across the United States, children and adolescents spend the majority of their waking hours in schools that increasingly have come to resemble places of detention more than places of learning," observes Fuentes. Federally subsidized "zero tolerance" policies have created what Fuentes and other critics of the system call the "school-to-prison pipeline": "If yesterday's prank got a slap on the wrist, today those wrists could be slapped with handcuffs."

The danger here is not merely that schools have been largely transformed into short-term prison facilities; it's that the SROs deployed therein take seriously Giduck's catechism about being combat-ready "warriors," rather than peace officers. Their operational credo is not "protect and serve," but rather "control and dominate" – and, with increasing frequency, "close and kill."

Those options are compellingly displayed in two entirely unnecessary police assaults on young teenagers: The case of 17-year-old Derby, Kansas resident Jonathan Villareal, who was beaten, tasered, and handcuffed by police "resource officers" who took offense over the way the high school student was wearing his pants; and the murder of 14-year-old San Antonio reform school student Derek Lopez. Significantly, both of those incidents occurred after school hours.

Relieved by the end of his daily sentence in the government mind-laundry, Jonthan passed a brace of officially licensed bullies on the way to the bus. One of them told Jonathan to pull up his pants; the youngster replied – hopefully with the appropriate measure of controlled contempt – that school was over and he was thus free to dress any way he chose.

One of the thugs – his tax-fattened bulk making him much larger than the scrawny adolescent – threw Jonathan to the ground while bellowing the familiar rapist's refrain: "Stop resisting!" The other thug immediately joined in, both of them striking and kneeing the prone, helpless teenager in the back, legs, and neck. Jonathan also suffered a black eye.

When Jonathan struggled to his feet, he was thrown down forcefully; he felt his arm snap as he hit the ground. He struggled to his feet again, thereby giving one of the costumed enforcers an excuse to report that the victim had assumed an "aggressive stance." This supposedly justified a potentially lethal taser attack.

The Derby High School newspaper, appropriately called the Informer, explained that students can be subjected to "administrative" discipline for wearing their pants "inappropriately." Derby Police Chief Robert Lee described the incident as "a flagrant violation of school policy that could have been handled administratively, if he had not resisted the SRO."

Once again, we see the logic of the rapist at work: If the victim is severely injured or killed for fighting back, it's her own fault; she shouldn't have resisted. This comparison, of course, is unfair: Rapists and other aggressors not swaddled in government-issued costumes aren't generally permitted to file criminal charges against victims who fight back. The Derby Police Department "will take the incident to the district attorney for possible criminal charges against Villareal," observes the Informer.

Through an interpreter, Villareal's mother said that she "understands if they need to arrest him for being disrespectful," but that she doesn't understand why "they need to beat him up for whatever reason."

The short answer, of course, is this: They do it because they can.

Derby High's dress code is described as part of an effort to beat back the insidious "gang culture" considered to be a besetting scourge of society. Doubtless the school also participates in the Regime's "anti-bullying campaign," in which students are encouraged to rat out each other whenever they hear inappropriate comments, or see what they believe to be inappropriate conduct.

None of this applies to the sanctified bullies in military attire, of course. Since they belong to the State's punitive priesthood, those skeevy armed adults can loiter around schools, leering like Aqualung at underage girls and taunting smaller young males in an attempt to provoke them into doing something to justify a righteous beating – followed by prosecution for "resisting arrest."

With troubling frequency, this State-authorized bullying involves the use of consistently lethal weapons, such as the ubiquitous portable electro-shock torture device. On occasion, it involves unambiguous criminal homicide. Witness the November 12, 2010 killing of Derek Lopez by Officer Daniel Alvarado of San Antonio's Northside Independent School District Police.

Alvarado was an exceptionally unqualified officer even by the dismal standards that prevail among the ranks of tax-subsidized gun thugs. Between March 2006 and November 2010, Alvarado was suspended four times. Four times he was informed by supervisors that he faced "immediate termination."

For some reason – most likely one rooted in police union politics – when it came time to fire Alvarado, his superiors just couldn't bring themselves to pull the trigger. Alvarado displayed no similar scruples on November 12, 2010, when he murdered 14-year-old Derek Lopez, who had just taken part in a brief scuffle with another student.

Owing to his own troubled past, Lopez was a student at the Bexar County Juvenile Justice Academy. At around 4:30 PM on the fatal day, Lopez sucker-punched a 13-year-old classmate at a bus stop.

"He just hit me once," the student later recalled in a sworn deposition. "It wasn't a fight. It was nothing."

Unfortunately, Alvarado happened to be prowling the intersection in his patrol car, and witnessed the trivial dust-up.

251658240

"Freeze!" Alvarado shouted at Lopez, who bolted from the scene. Alvarado, in his mid-40s, briefly gave token pursuit before wheezing out the first of several self-serving falsehoods.

"I just had one run from me," gasped the winded tax-feeder. "I saw an assault in progress. He punched the guy several times." (Emphasis added.)

A supervisor instructed Alvarado "not [to] do any big search over there" in pursuit of the assailant. "Let's stay with the victim and see if we can identify [the suspect] that way."

Rather than doing as he was ordered, Alvarado bundled the "victim" – who was probably more terrified of the armed functionary than of his obnoxious classmate – into the patrol car and went in pursuit of Lopez.

Lopez climbed a nearby fence and hid in a backyard shed containing Christmas decorations. The homeowner saw the intrusion, and a neighbor flagged down Alvarado's patrol car. The officer drew his gun "when he came up the driveway," recalled the homeowner.

Within a minute or so, a single gunshot resonated through the neighborhood. When asked by the horrified homeowner what had happened, Alvarado – who reportedly looked "dazed or distant" – replied that Lopez "came at me."

"The suspect bull rushed his way out of the shed and lunged right at me," the timorous creature later claimed in an official report. "The suspect was literally inches away from me, and I feared for my own safety."(Emphasis added.)

Alvarado was lying, of course. An autopsy revealed "no evidence of close range firing [on] the wound," and no gunpowder stains were found on the victim's bloody t-shirt.

By this time, the boy who had taken the punch at the bus stop had called his mother via cell phone. She arrived shortly after Alvarado had gunned down Lopez.

"At one point, the mother told a witness, 'He shot him? Why did he shoot him? He didn't have to shoot him,"reports the San Antonio News-Express .

Alvarado, who four times was on the cusp of being fired for insubordination, disobeyed a direct order on November 12. He falsified key details of the shooting in his official report. A 14-year-old boy was gunned down execution-style for the venial offense of engaging in an adolescent scuffle, and for compelling an overweight middle-aged badge-polisher to run a few hundred yards. According to the San Antonio Police Department, this is all perfectly acceptable: The department ruled that the murder of Derek Lopez was a "justified" shooting.

Although he's been removed from patrol duty, Alvarado remains on the force, albeit in a tax-underwritten sinecure. Although he had repeatedly been threatened with termination for sloppiness or defiance in carrying out administrative duties, Alvarado faces neither criminal prosecution nor professional censure for murdering a 14-year-old boy.

Apparently, insubordination in carrying out office functions is a much graver matter than insubordination that results in the needless death of an adolescent Mundane.

Despite the fact that this incident involved two teenage boys who attended a special school for troubled juveniles, parents should understand that students in practically any government-run "educational" institution can fall prey to sudden – and potentially lethal – police violence.

The purpose of "active shooter drills" is not to refine protocols intended to protect inmates of government schools; instead, it is to habituate children to the presence of paramilitary operators in their midst. Parents should ponder that reality as millions of young Americans begin their welcome Summer parole from the government's hybrid school/prison system – and they should likewise consider the wisdom of making that parole an unconditional pardon.

SWAT TEAM MANIA: The War Against the American Citizen

June 15th, 2011 by

By John W. Whitehead

http://www.rutherford.org/articles_db/commentary.asp?record_id=715
 6/13/2011
 "He [a federal agent] had his knee on my back and I had no idea why they were there."–Anthony Wright, victim of a Dept. of Education SWAT team raid

The militarization of American police–no doubt a blowback effect of the military empire–has become an unfortunate part of American life. In fact, it says something about our reliance on the military that federal agencies having nothing whatsoever to do with national defense now see the need for their own paramilitary units. Among those federal agencies laying claim to their own law enforcement divisions are the State Department, Department of Education, Department of Energy, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the National Park Service, to name just a few. These agencies have secured the services of fully armed agents–often in SWAT team attire–through a typical bureaucratic sleight-of-hand provision allowing for the creation of Offices of Inspectors General (OIG). Each OIG office is supposedly charged with not only auditing their particular agency's actions but also uncovering possible misconduct, waste, fraud, theft, or certain types of criminal activity by individuals or groups related to the agency's operation. At present, there are73 such OIG offices in the federal government that, at times, perpetuate a police state aura about them.
For example, it was heavily armed agents from one such OIG office, working under the auspices of the Department of Education, who forced their way into the home of a California man, handcuffed him, and placed his three children (ages 3, 7, and 11) in a squad car while they conducted a search of his home. This federal SWAT team raid, which is essentially what it was, on the home of Anthony Wright on Tuesday, June 7, 2011, was allegedly intended to ferret out information on Wright's estranged wife, Michelle, who no longer lives with him and who was suspected of financial aid fraud (early news reports characterized the purpose of the raid as being over Michelle's delinquent student loans). According to Wright, he was awakened at 6 am by the sound of agents battering down his door and, upon descending the stairs, was immediately subdued by police. One neighbor actually witnessed the team of armed agents surround the house and, after forcing entry, they "dragged [Wright] out in his boxer shorts, threw him to the ground and handcuffed him."

This is not the first time a SWAT team has been employed in non-violent scenarios. Nationwide, SWAT teams have been employed to address an astonishingly trivial array of criminal activity or mere community nuisances: angry dogs, domestic disputes, improper paperwork filed by an orchid farmer, and misdemeanor marijuana possession, to give a brief sampling. In some instances, SWAT teams are even employed, in full armament, to perform routine patrols.

How did we allow ourselves to travel so far down the road to a police state? While we are now grappling with a power-hungry police state at the federal level, the militarization of domestic American law enforcement is largely the result of the militarization of local police forces, which are increasingly militaristic in their uniforms, weaponry, language, training, and tactics and have come to rely on SWAT teams in matters that once could have been satisfactorily performed by traditional civilian officers. Even so, this transformation of law enforcement at the local level could not have been possible without substantial assistance from the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.
Frequently justified as vital tools necessary to combat terrorism and deal with rare but extremely dangerous criminal situations, such as those involving hostages, SWAT teams–which first appeared on the scene in California in the 1960s–have now become intrinsic parts of local law enforcement operations, thanks in large part to substantial federal assistance. For example, in 1994, the U.S. Department of Justice and the Department of Defense agreed to a memorandum of understanding that enabled the transfer of federal military technology to local police forces. Following the passage of the Defense Authorization Security Act of 1997, which was intended to accelerate the transfer of military equipment to domestic law enforcement departments, local police acquired military weaponry–gratuitously or at sharp discounts–at astonishing rates. Between 1997 and 1999, the agency created by the Defense Authorization Security Act conveyed 3.4 million orders of military equipment to over 11,000 local police agencies in all 50 states. Not only did this vast abundance of military weaponry contribute to a more militarized police force, but it also helped spur the creation of SWAT teams in jurisdictions across the country.
In one of the few quantitative studies on the subject, criminologist Peter Kraska found in 1997 that close to 90 percent of cities with populations exceeding 50,000 and at least 100 sworn officers had at least one paramilitary unit. In a separate study, Kraska determined that, as of 1996, 65 percent of towns with populations between 25,000 and 50,000 had a paramilitary unit, with an additional 8 percent intending to establish one.
While the frequency of SWAT operations has increased dramatically in recent years, jumping from 1,000 to 40,000 raids per year by 2001, it appears to have less to do with increases in violent crime and more to do withlaw enforcement bureaucracy and a police state mentality. Indeed, according to Kraska's estimates,75-80 percent of SWAT callouts are now for mere warrant service. In some jurisdictions, SWAT teams are responsible for servicing 100 percent of all drug warrants issued. A Maryland study, conducted in the wake of a botched raid in 2008 that resulted in the mistaken detainment of Berwyn Heights mayor Cheye Calvo and the shooting deaths of his two dogs, corroborates Kraska's findings. According to the study, SWAT teams are deployed 4.5 times per day in Maryland with 94 percent of those deployments being for something as minor as serving search or arrest warrants. In the county in which the Calvo raid occurred, more than50 percent of SWAT operations carried out were for misdemeanors or non-serious felonies.
This overuse of paramilitary forces and increased reliance on military weaponry has inevitably resulted in a pervasive culture of militarism in domestic law enforcement. Police mimicry of the military is enhanced by the war-heavy imagery and metaphors associated with law enforcement activity: the war on drugs, the war on crime, etc. Moreover, it is estimated that 46 percent of paramilitary units were trained by "active-duty military experts in special operations." In turn, the military mindset adopted by many SWAT members encourages a tendency to employ lethal force. After all, soldiers are authorized to terminate enemy combatants. As Lawrence Korb, a former official in the Reagan Administration, put it, soldiers are "trained to vaporize, not Mirandize."

Ironically, despite the fact that SWAT team members are subject to greater legal restraints than their counterparts in the military, they are often less well-trained in the use of force than are the special ops soldiers on which they model themselves. Indeed, SWAT teams frequently fail to conform to the basic precautions required in military raids. For instance, after reading about a drug raid in Missouri, an army officer currently serving in Afghanistan commented:
My first thought on reading this story is this: Most American police SWAT teams probably have fewer restrictions on conducting forced entry raids than do US forces in Afghanistan.For our troops over here to conduct any kind of forced entry, day or night, they have to meet one of two conditions: have a bad guy (or guys) inside actively shooting at them; or obtain permission from a 2-star general, who must be convinced by available intelligence (evidence) that the person or persons they're after is present at the location, and that it's too dangerous to try less coercive methods.
Remember, SWAT teams originated as specialized units dedicated to defusing extremely sensitive, dangerous situations. As the role of paramilitary forces has expanded, however, to include involvement in nondescript police work targeting nonviolent suspects, the mere presence of SWAT units has actually injected a level of danger and violence into police-citizen interactions that was not present as long as these interactions were handled by traditional civilian officers. In one drug raid, for instance, an unarmed pregnant woman was shot as she attempted to flee the police by climbing out a window. In another case, the girlfriend of a drug suspect and her young child crouched on the floor in obedience to police instructions during the execution of a search warrant. One officer proceeded to shoot the family dogs. His fellow officer, in another room, mistook the shots for hostile gunfire and fired blindly into the room where the defendant crouched, killing her and wounding her child.
What we are witnessing is an inversion of the police-civilian relationship. Rather than compelling police officers to remain within constitutional bounds as servants of the people, ordinary Americans are being placed at the mercy of law enforcement. This is what happens when paramilitary forces are used to conduct ordinary policing operations, such as executing warrants on nonviolent defendants.Yet studies indicate that paramilitary raids frequently result in misdemeanor convictions. An investigation by Denver's Rocky Mountain News revealed that of the 146 no-knock raids conducted in Denver in 2000, only 49 resulted in charges. And only two resulted in prison sentences for suspects targeted in the raids.
General incompetence, collateral damage (fatalities, property damage, etc.) and botched raids tend to go hand in hand with an overuse of paramilitary forces. In some cases, officers misread the address on the warrant. In others, they simply barge into the wrong house or even the wrong building. In another subset of cases (such as the Department of Education raid on Anthony Wright's home), police conduct a search of a building where the suspect no longer resides. SWAT teams have even on occasion conducted multiple, sequential raids on wrong addresses or executed search warrants despite the fact that the suspect is already in police custody. Police have also raided homes on the basis of mistaking the presence or scent of legal substances for drugs. Incredibly, these substances have included tomatoes, sunflowers, fish, elderberry bushes, kenaf plants, hibiscus, and ragweed.
All too often, botched SWAT team raids have resulted in one tragedy after another for the residents with little consequences for law enforcement. Judges tend to afford extreme levels of deference to police officers who have mistakenly killed innocent civilians but do not afford similar leniency to civilians who have injured police officers in acts of self-defense. Even homeowners who mistake officers for robbers can be sentenced for assault or murder if they take defensive actions resulting in harm to police.

And as journalist Radley Balko shows in his in-depth study of police militarization, the shock-and-awe tactics utilized by many SWAT teams only increases the likelihood that someone will get hurt. Drug warrants, for instance, are typically served by paramilitary units late at night or shortly before dawn. Unfortunately, to the unsuspecting homeowner–especially in cases involving mistaken identities or wrong addresses–a raid can appear to be nothing less than a violent home invasion, with armed intruders crashing through their door. The natural reaction would be to engage in self-defense. Yet such a defensive reaction on the part of a homeowner, particularly a gun owner, will spur officers to employ lethal force.
That's exactly what happened to Jose Guerena, the young ex-Marine who was killed after a SWAT team kicked open the door of his Arizona home during a drug raid and opened fire. According to news reports, Guerena, 26 years old and the father of two young children, grabbed a gun in response to the forced invasion but never fired. In fact, the safety was still on his gun when he was killed. Police officers were not as restrained. The young Iraqi war veteran was allegedly fired upon 61 times. Guerena had no prior criminal record, and the police found nothing illegal in his home.
The problems inherent in these situations are further compounded by the fact that SWAT teams are granted "no-knock" warrants at high rates such that the warrants themselves are rendered practically meaningless.This sorry state of affairs is made even worse by recent U.S. Supreme Court rulings that have essentially done away with the need for a "no-knock" warrant altogether, giving the police authority to disregard the protections afforded American citizens by the Fourth Amendment.
In the process, Americans are rendered altogether helpless and terror-stricken as a result of these confrontations with the police. Indeed, "terrorizing" is a mild term to describe the effect on those who survive such vigilante tactics. "It was terrible. It was the most frightening experience of my life. I thought it was a terrorist attack," said 84-year-old Leona Goldberg, a victim of such a raid. Yet this type of "terrorizing" activity is characteristic of the culture that we have created. As author Eugene V. Walker, a former Boston University professor, wrote some years ago, "A society in which people are already isolated and atomized, divided by suspicious and destructive rivalry, would support a system of terror better than a society without much chronic antagonism."

Huge Drop In Silver Inventory

June 15th, 2011 by

 

DON'T TREAD ON ME

 

http://dont-tread-on.me/huge-drop-in-silver-inventory-today/

By Silver Shield, on June 14th,2011

“You can run on for a long time, but sooner or later God will cut you down.” -Johnny Cash

We have all been a little deflated by the price suppression in the paper silver market lately, but the drop in inventory  has been extremely bullish. Today we not only dropped 777,018 ounces in the all important Registered inventory. We dropped 1.2 million additional ounces in the Eligible category.

This is the first time ever it has been under 100 million ounces.

You have to wonder at what point will people wake up to what is going on here?

Do we really have to wait until there is 0 ounces left?

You also have to wonder why the Elite ALWAYS try price controls either explicit or secretive like they are doing now?

I also thing think it is foolish to think JP Morgon is going to fall on the sword and not at some point go really long in physical knowing how much they have suppressed this market. The only question that remains will someone beat them to the punch?

The CRIMEX has lost on average 1.6 million ounces a month for the past 3 years. At that pace there will be nothing left in about a year and a half.

The CRIMEX has lost 13 million ounces since April 19th. At that pace there will be nothing left in 4 months.

The CRIMEX lost 2 million ounces today. At that pace there will be nothing left by July.

My gut is telling me July is going to be very tumultuous. It is a delivery month and there are hundreds of millions of paper contracts all playing musical chairs to this 28 million ounces. There does not have to be physical default because the CRIMEX will either settle for FRN’s, SLV shares or change the rules. No matter what they do they will only make the final judgment that much worse. Keep stacking.

The 3 Coming False Flags

June 13th, 2011 by

Don't Tread On Me

 

http://dont-tread-on.me/the-3-coming-false-flags/

 

 

By Silver Shield, on June 9th,2011

I have been tempted to write about False Flags for sometime, because I feel we are on the verge of seeing another one very soon. False flag operations are covert operations designed to deceive the public in such a way that the operations appear as though they are being carried out by other entities. (Wikipedia) False flags do not happen very often, but when they do happen, they change the paradigm we operate in. Now that we supposedly killed bin Laden last month, it seems like the deck is clear for another one.

Historically, false flags are military in nature, but I feel going forward, they will morph into something worse. Every system built on debt needs constant debt to be created, or the system implodes. If the Elite can expand the system through asset bubbles, then all is well. What happens if they can’t get more debt created? They need to either steal other assets to provide capital to the system or they need a reason to create massive debts that the masses will sacrifice for. Wars do both. With war, the Elite can confiscate natural resources of other nations and provide the context to create massive amounts of new debt.

Our system is failing and there is NO fixing it. There is so much inequity built into the system, at every level, the only answer is a complete collapse. This collapse will leave a generational scar, so that humanity will never again consider fractional reserve banking and the war machine it enables. Until that collapse the Elite will do what they have always done, create more debts and wars.

In my opening blog post this year, Doom, I wrote that the Elite see their power paradigm collapsing on its own cancerous self. A silver default, debt doom, dollar collapse, peak oil or whatever leads to the end of the Anglo American Petro Dollar financial paradigm. I hypothesized the- our Anglo-America Elite might need to pull off 3 false flags in order to push forward. This might include the typical Military false flag, an Economic false flag and an Internet false flag. These dramatic measures will seem necessary to the Elite and the horrific toll on humanity will be justified in their minds. This upheaval will be the time for the Elite to settle all of the threats to their power paradigm.

The first of the three threats to their power is the death of the dollar. The dollar is the basis of all of the Elites power, without it or an equivalent of it, they have no means to create the debt that enslaves nations, states, corporations, and citizens of the world. This debt provides the Elite and unlimited checkbook to fund the most powerful military in the world. It controls the world’s natural resources so that their corporations can harvest them. It also protects the shipping lanes that transport the rest of the world’s trade. This debt also buys the political power for which the Elite rig the game to their favor. Finally, the Elite use the – their money to own all of the major media in order to distract the masses from the real problem in this world, the International Banksters.

It is no secret that the dollar is going to die, it is a mathematical inevitability. Nothing can stop the ultimate collapse of the dollar. Our monetary system is based on debt and in order for it to work, more debt needs to be created every year in excess of the debt AND interest accrued the year before. If it does not happen, there would be a massive wave of defaults that would suck the system dry in a few weeks. When you truly understand this debt based money, you realize that debt cannot ever be repaid because there would not be 1 dollar in existence. In our sick system, money is created when debt is created. When debt is paid off money is destroyed.

The Elite don’t necessarily care if the Dollar lives or dies, they just want to control the world’s reserve currency. They would ultimately like to have a global international currencythat would be far away from the pesky national politicians. So if the Dollar is doomed, how can the Elite push forward? Create a financial crisis so incredible that desperate people will beg the Elite to make the pain stop. They did it in 1907 to set the stage for the Federal Reserve. They did it in 2008 when they held up America for $700 billion. They will do it again and use theLIE of stability as the main reason why we should accept their new corrupt plan.

I don’t think they can pull off something so large like that without a much larger distraction to silence the masses, which brings me to the second threat. The only thing I think big enough to scare the masses under the “protective” hug of the Elite is another World War. Nations outside the Anglo American Empire have been gaining power the further we slip into debt and this is a huge threat. Countries like China, Russia, Iran, Venezuela, South Africa and many more like to a lesser extent like Japan, Germany, and France have been on the losing end of the Anglo American Empire for over a century. These nations have a history of Anglo American losses like the Cold War, Opium Wars, Operation Ajax, CIA attempted coup of Chavez, Apartheid, Hiroshima, Treaty of Versailles, and Waterloo. These are only some of the examples our Elite have used in the past to ensure our supremacy. The Elite feed us some lie about us making the world safe for democracy, while they pull the most evil and disgusting power grabs to eliminate threats to their paradigm.

I believe that the collapse of the dollar will be blamed not on our corrupt and doomed monetary system that the Elite are in sole control of, they will blame it on China. Let me first state that I am NO fan of China. Their Elite have human rights violations against their own citizens that would make you sick to your stomach. Let’s be honest, China would not be a threat to us if our Elite did not build them up. Our Military Industrial Complex needs an enemy to justify their war machine. The War on Terror was a good ride, but after almost a decade, it is getting a little old. Our banking system needed another country to buy into our paper Ponzi scheme. China became the most obvious target, after Japan gorged itself to death on our debt. Our Elites, made deals with their Elites, to move our manufacturing overseas to use their slave labor and pollute their environment. The Chicoms got all of the technology, manufacturing and dollars to build up China as a threat. Our Elite did this to make tremendous profits and keep the dollar paradigm going. In the end, I believe the Elite intend to use the Chinese as the next enemy in a paradigm shifting war.

When China said no more American debt, the Federal Reserve stepped in as a buyer of last resort. This has bought us some time, but it is becoming obvious that even when QE3 happens, this won’t end good. The American economic system is like the heroin guy from the movie Se7en, any flash of inflation or deflation will create a massive heart attack. The Elite must some how solve Triffin’s Dilemma where a world reserve currency reaches its apex and must be allowed to default, but somehow not drag down the rest of the world with it. The Elite have been trying to get regional and ultimately global currencies in place to solve this dilemma. Now no nation is going to give up their power to create money, especially now that we are looking at the Euro imploding. The only option in to do it the old fashion way, through war.

The only thing the United States is good for is exporting debt and bombs. There is way too much at stake for our Elite to just walk silently into the night without a fight. They are trying to keep things going by fighting now four wars in the oil rich MENA region, but the writing is on the wall. The debt ceiling will be raised, more money/debt will be created and the war machine will churn. This will not end because the Elite will say,” we can’t do this anymore.” If anything, history has shown when the chips are on the table and they are up against the ropes, they double down and go off to war. The destruction of the dollar will either be the cause of war or the war will be the destruction of the dollar. If there is a Economic False Flag, like a massive treasury sell off, that will be the cause for war with China. Or if there is a Military False Flag, that will be the cause for the dollar’s destruction and forced introduction of a new money paradigm, possibly a global currency. The Elite will use this upheaval to destroy any competitors. In the smoking aftermath of the war, they will impose a new paradigm based on the same destructive seeds of the old paradigm.

“Never waste a good crisis.”Hillary Clinton

There is a third threat to the Elite’s power paradigm, the Internet. There is no doubt that the Internet has gotten away from the Elite and their lies have been exposed. Small sites like mine a hundreds of others show over and over again, the Emperor has no clothes. I can see an Internet False flag to coincide with this Economic and Military false flag. They will blame China for massive Internet shut downs of many sites. I believe that the big corporations will still have functioning internet, but small sites will be shut down. If this does not happen, they may do something more tyrannical, and shut down sites that speak out against this lie of war and debt.

Most tyrannies go after the heads of the revolution like local leaders and/or opinion makers like journalists and bloggers. They may ignore us at first, then call us crazy or unpatriotic, but ultimately they may detain or kill us. My hope is that people see the big picture and spread this truth so that it becomes impossible to put the genie of truth back in the bottle. One of the major reasons I created the Sons of Liberty Academy is to provide enough high level information to as many people so that they may conduct a leaderless resistance to the real enemy of us all, the Banksters.

My other hope is that those that are in charge of squelching dissent during these trying times will be Oathkeepers, who will not follow un-Constitutional orders against their fellow citizens. The most likely outcome is the government minion’s pay checks will bounce and their pensions stolen before we get to that kind of tyranny. At that point, those minions will most likely be the strongest allies to the truth movement, as they spill the beans and point the fingers. I wrote and article World?, in it I describe a man that sees what he is doing is evil and has the power to destroy the system he once created. Daniel Ellsberg exposed the Vietnam scam and ended that war. We cannot fight evil, we only need to expose evil and it will cease to have power. The challenge is to show people that the good that they think they are doing is really evil and they will no longer do it. We need to convince our fellow citizens that debt and war are evil and that we rid this scourge from humanity once and for all.

The timing and order of all of this is unknown, but just know that it is going to get dramatically worse before this gets any better. Every 80 years or so a paradigm dies and a new one is born out of the ashes of the old. 80 years ago, we had the Great Depression and World War II and this was the creation of the current paradigm. 80 years before that we had the Civil War and 80 years before that, we had the Revolutionary War. So far the United States has survived and gone on to become a Global Super Power. This time around we could have the possibility of a Revolutionary War, a Civil War, or a World War or even the combination of all three. There is nothing in writing saying that America will go on. In fact given our horrible record of debt and war, this system deserves to die an awful death.

What lays ahead? I don’t think the United States will be invaded, but we will retreat from our 777 military bases all over the world. We will no longer be able to consume 25% of the world’s oil and create unlimited amounts of debt. Our lives will become much slower and local. If the Internet does continue to be free, there is a great chance of a new Renaissance for humanity as we move past debt and war. If the Elite somehow win, you will see the rise of American Oligarchs. The Elite will fund and create front men to buy up strategic assets while there is blood on the streets. This happened during the collapse of the Soviet Empire and I believe it will happen here. During the collapse of the Soviet Empire the Ruble was devalued, the economy collapsed and people starved. The Rothschild’s came in with hard currencies like the Dollar and the Deutschmark and set up average men with banks and capital to buy state assets for a song. When our crisis comes, the Banksters will be screaming for state assets like land, roads, buildings, mining and drilling rights and other assets. They are doing this in Greece and they will do it here.

While all of this may be too scary or too much for you to believe or even too big for you to deal with,I encourage you to not hide from this coming reality.Things are only scary if you do not understand them. I have created the Sons of Liberty Academy to speed you through the 5 Stages of Awakening. When you are aware, you can prepare.You can stay ahead of the curve to at the very least, stay out of danger, and at the most, be able to spot opportunities along the way. Mental preparation is by far the most important thing you can be doing right now. Nothing will help you mentally prepare as quickly as the Sons of Liberty Academy. After that, you need to physically prepare to have food, shelter, and the means to protect yourself. Finally, I recommend you read the Silver Bullet and the Silver Shield to create generational wealth on the other side of this coming paradigm shift.

Wake Some People Up!

 

Next False Flag to Be Cyber?

June 13th, 2011 by

http://www.thedailybell.com/2491/Next-False-Flag-to-Be-Cyber.html

 

Monday, June 13, 2011 – by Staff Report

CIA Director Leon Panettatestified at the hearing on the defense budge, "The days of large growth, unlimited defense budgets are over. "Our challenge will be to design budgets that eliminate wasteful and duplicative spending while protecting those core elements that we absolutely need for our nation's defense." He later said "the next Pearl Harbor that we face could well be a cyber attack" and that "we are no longer in the cold war, more like the blizzard war." If confirmed, Mr. Panetta, will be the 23rd U.S. Defense Secretary. – CSpan

Dominant Social Theme: Relax, we are trying to DEFEND YOU. (No, we're not.)

Free-Market Analysis: CIA Director Leon Panetta said in a recent hearing that the US may soon face a cyber attack that would be the equivalent of Pearl Harbor. (See excerpt above.) Pearl Harbor was a huge (possibly false flag) event that convulsed the US and provided a pretext for the US to go to war. We've written several recent articles now suggesting that Western powers-that-be have in mind expanding the wars in Eurasia and Africa.

When the power elite's faux-economies collapse, as they always do, the solution is usually a war of some sort. It is one of the biggest dominant social themes of all. War is the ultimate fear-based promotion – the idea that the state (which is no good at anything else) – can protect and defend citizens from its "enemies." Usually, when one closely examines the situation, the enemies have been made up, at least initially. The Internet has been making war harder to promote.

War runs hand-in-hand with economics. When the economy flatlines, modern warfare is often the answer of those that seek to continue their control of society. Fiat money, the current manifestation of Western economies, is a very effective tool for control and consolidation. But like other forms of price-fixing, it doesn't work over the long term. Western power elites, based out of the City of London, know this. There are over 100 central banks around the world that are coordinated by the secretive BIS and all of them can basically print money at will. Even when there is supposedly public oversight of these banks, there is no oversight.

The serial ruin the BIS inflicts on the world is intended to increase the pressure for centralization – for true world government run by Western elites. This is not conjecture. It is not conspiracy theory. The UN exists; so do the BIS, the World Bank and the IMF. Also, now, the International Criminal Court. All are basically post-World War II Western inventions. Yet those who point that a world government is being erected bit by bit are labeled conspiracy theorists. The conspiracy lies with the power elite that is moving ahead with this unaccountable and dangerous program.

The rush to world government has speeded up in the 2000s. NATO has been given a new mandate as a kind of "army of the world" via the UN resolution back in 2005 that did away with the Peace of Westphalia and substituted "Responsibility to Protect" – also known as R2P.

The Peace of Westphalia, created hundreds of years ago, recognized national borders. R2P DEMANDS that nation-states as a group interfere with nations that are "threatening" their citizens. Of course, the Anglo-American power elites run the UN through the Security Council. Now these elites can claim that a particular country (one they want to undermine) is threatening citizens and turn a NATO coalition of the willing on them. This is what's happening in Libya, Syria, etc.

Throughout the world, over the past six months, the Anglo-American elites (in league with France) have begun to generate numerous wars and conflicts – up to 600 or so "hot spots" worldwide. This is apparently a deliberate policy of destabilization that is being supported and even initiated by CIA-trained youth groups such as the AYM.

The West's elites must understand that fiat-money inflation has plunged the world into a rolling Depression. As we have pointed out many times, China is probably next on the list. There is no real escape from this Depression – not in the short term, and thus the elites are apparently faced with a problem: They must sustain the system as it is until they can make the transition to true world government.

Whenever Western elites have faced problems before (in the past 300 years anyway) they have apparently engineered wars. The plan evidently and obviously was to do so again in the 21st century. But the Internet has made this kind of manipulation much more difficult. Like the Gutenberg Press before it, the Internet is causing a massive upheaval around the world that the elites are having difficulty controlling. We have labeled this the Internet Reformation.

The Western power elites have three main thrusts in our humble view to pursue. 1. They have an evident urgent need to continue their lunge toward world government. 2. They have to create war and chaos to do so. (Out of chaos, order.) 3. And finally, they have to ameliorate the damage that is being done to their plans by the Internet.

An Internet false flag within this context would be a kind of masterstroke. It is certainly not beyond rational discussion. We can see Leon Panetta (above) laying the groundwork for such an event. The rebuttal would be that he is merely spelling out dangers that the US faces. But when someone as powerful and important as Panetta speaks of such things, the suspicion can legitimately arise that these activities are actively being planned. An article that appeared over the weekend at ZeroHedge.com aptly summarized the many false flags that the US in particular has been involved with in the past decades.

The article is entitled, High-Level American Officials Admit that the United States Uses False Flag Terror … And Warn of Future Attacks. It was submitted by "George Washington" who is apparently a regular submitter. The article appears on his own "Washington's Blog" as well.

It points out, to begin with, that "FBI agents and CIA intelligence officials, constitutional law expert professor Jonathan Turley, Time Magazine, Keith Olbermann and the Washington Post have all said that U.S. government officials 'were trying to create an atmosphere of fear in which the American people would give them more power.'" Apparently, former Secretary of Homeland Security – Tom Ridge – admitted that he was pushed to hike terror alerts to help Bush win reelection.

Washington then points out that a former National Security Adviser told the Senate that the war on terror is "a mythical historical narrative." It is being purveyed (as we have often pointed out) deliberately to increase elite control and demonize elite enemies such as Libya's Colonel Muammar Gaddafi. "Fear makes people stupid and easy to manipulate and control." Washington adds, "Countries need to lie about their enemies in order to demonize them sufficiently so that the people will support the war."

For this reason, intelligence agencies (apparently invented by the West's banking families long ago for their personal use) are constantly identifying threats that later on prove illusory. Washington reminds us that, "the U.S. Navy's own historians now say that the sinking of the USS Maine — the justification for America's entry into the Spanish-American War — was probably caused by an internal explosion of coal, rather than an attack by the Spanish … It is also now well-accepted that the Gulf of Tonkin Incident which led to the Vietnam war was a fiction."

Washington doesn't mention it but one reason Panetta's reference to Pearl Harbor is worrisome is because there is a good amount of evidence that Pearl Harbor was a manipulated episode by FDR to bring  the US into World War II. In the 1990s, at least one prominent think tank speculated that what was needed to reestablish certain elements of national pride and discipline in America was a "new Pearl Harbor." These same people went on to become prominent (many of them) in the George W. Bush administration, which gave rise to the ongoing suspicions that 9/11 itself might be a false flag, one designed to reintroduce more authoritarianism into American culture while simultaneously involving it in wars.  

These same suspicions apply to the first Gulf War, as Washington points out. At least two "big lies" helped to generate the 1991 Gulf War: the first was the allegation that the Iraqis were murdering Kuwaiti babies and the second was that 250,000 Iraqi troops were massed on the border with Saudi Arabia. Washington doesn't mention it, but there are also allegations that Saddam Hussein believed he was in a sense given permission by the West to pursue his Kuwait invasion due to what may have been a purposefully nebulous response by the US State Dept. regarding his plans.

Washington updates the old Iraq war with new proposed plans. Former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Hugh Shelton recently told Jon Stewart that a Clinton cabinet member proposed letting Saddam kill an American pilot as a pretext for war in Iraq. As reported by the New York Times and other newspapers, he continues, "George W. Bush also suggested to Tony Blair that a U.S. plane be painted in United Nations colors so that – if Saddam shot it down – it would create a casus belli."

The US is a prime exponent of terrorism, Washington writes. "In '78-79 the Senate was trying to pass a law against international terrorism – in every version they produced, the lawyers said the US would be in violation." Former FBI station chief Ted Gundersen has been outspoken about False Flag terror attacks, saying that most of them are committed by the CIA and FBI.

The CIA, Washington writes, admits that it hired Iranians in the 1950s to pose as Communists and stage bombings in Iran in order to turn the country against its democratically-elected prime minister. And then, of course, there isOperation Gladio, which created a secret "stay behind" army in Europe. "The former Italian Prime Minister, an Italian judge, and the former head of Italian counterintelligence admit that NATO, with the help of the Pentagon and CIA, carried out terror bombings in Italy and other European countries in the 1950s and blamed the communists, in order to rally people's support for their governments in Europe in their fight against communism."

We could go on with this list, and Washington does. It is grim reading, involving the FBI, CIA and, generally, the top level of the American government in false-flag efforts and subsequent coverups. Washington reminds us that those who forget history – or do not recognize – are likely doomed to repeat it.

He also points out that recently a former National Security Adviser informed the Senate that a false flag act might be blamed on Iran to declare war. And this, too: "A retired 27-year CIA analyst who prepared and presented Presidential Daily Briefs and served as a high-level analyst for several presidents stated that if there was another major attack in the U.S., it would lead to martial law … The former CIA analyst would not put it past the government to 'play fast and loose' with terror alerts and warnings and even events themselves in order to rally people behind the flag. We've written about this sort of false flag numerous times, most recently here: Does the Elite Need a False Flag?

We have noticed in the news a good deal of commentary about a cyber attack on the International Monetary Fund. A feedbacker pointed out yesterday that this increasingly publicized attack plus Panetta's disturbing remarks seem to be laying the groundwork for a false flag of this sort. Also, the Pentagon recently announced that a cyber-attack on government facilities would be considered an Act of War.

None of the above is in any sense paranoid or irresponsible to report. One needs not be involved in "conspiracy theory" to purvey the idea that Washington and London are contemplating further false flags to further consolidate power in the face of pan-Western anger over the current, dysfunctional central banking economy and to further consolidate world rule.

The Internet has revealed the plans of the Western elites, stripped away the secrecy and showed many what is really going on – a perhaps 300-year-old conspiracy to consolidate world power behind the backs of billions who are simply struggling every day to make a living and find enough food to eat. Yes, unfortunately, the free-market has been subverted in every way while billions and trillions – enough to feed the world literally for centuries (or at least to set up the agricultural infrastructure) – is wasted on wars and weapons systems.

Because of the Pentagon's announcement, a major cyber attack can be the cause of a war. If a false flag cyber attack was to be created and, say, attributed to Iran, then the US President might be under an affirmative obligation to declare war against Iran. No doubt, US powers-that-be could also justify a significant takeover of the American Internet and further reduce American civil rights. A cyber false flag might therefore promote many of the interests of the Anglosphere power elite.

Conclusion: These sorts of things have happened before. It is neither incendiary nor unpatriotic to recite them. American freedoms (what's left of them) are under attack by 16 separate US spy agencies and numerous other aggressive actions taken by Washington DC and London. Western elites are evidently and obviously at war with their own citizens. Unfortunately, there is no reason, to think peace will break out anytime soon.

The Origins of the World Trade Center Attack

"On that fateful day, 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) easing 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 without the standard regulatory controls around identification of ownership."

Dear friends,

Few people are aware of the huge Black Eagle Trust fund, let alone its critical relation to the 9/11 attacks. A brilliant summary of excellent information regarding this covert fund compiled by meticulous researcher E.P. Heidner ties together many previously unexplained threads in the 9/11 mystery in ways that are most compelling. Heidner presents volumes of solid evidence to support his thesis that one of the main reasons for the attacks was to cover up the laundering of over $200 billion in bonds from this secretive fund that were to come due the day after 9/11.

Serious 9/11 researchers will likely be most grateful for the revealing connections in this careful research made between seemingly unconnected parts of the 9/11 story and the many people and organizations involved. Those less familiar with the 9/11 cover-up will almost certainly appreciate the broad overview given and the hidden history behind it all. If we follow the money, a lot of unexplained things begin to make sense.

Note: For what may be the most powerful single piece of evidence corroborating this theory, click here to read the Reuters news service article on the massive volume of electronic financial transactions conducted from inside the WTC just before the towers collapsed. Yet the investigation results are being kept secret.

Collateral Damage: U.S. Covert Operations and the Terrorist Attacks on 9/11

The September 11th attacks were likely meant as a cover-up for financial crimes being investigated by the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI), whose offices in the Pentagon were destroyed on September 11th. [1] The attacks … were intended to cover-up the clearing of $240 billion dollars in securities covertly created in September 1991 to fund a covert economic war against the Soviet Union, during which ‘unknown’ western investors bought up much of the Soviet industry, with a focus on oil and gas.

The 9/11 attacks also served to derail multiple Federal investigations of crimes associated with the 1991 covert operation. Hundreds of billions of dollars of government securities had to be destroyed. A critical mass of brokers from the major government security brokerages in the Twin Towers had to be eliminated to create chaos in the government securities market. A situation needed to be created 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 very afternoon. [4]

There were three major securities brokers in the World Trade Center: Cantor Fitzgerald, Eurobrokers and Garbon Inter Capital. Cantor Fitzgerald was the largest securities dealer in the US [7] and arguably the primary target. [8] 41% of the fatalities in the Twin Towers came from Cantor Fitzgerald and Eurobrokers. [13] 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. The Naval Command Center had been moved into that newly opened section of the Pentagon only a month earlier. [21] And in the vaults beneath the World Trade Center Towers, any certificates for bonds were destroyed. [14]

On that fateful day, 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) easing 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 without the standard regulatory controls around identification of ownership. [19]

 

Emboldened by the lack of consequences for subverting the U.S. constitution and breaking international law during the Iran-Contra scandal of the 1980s, a Bush administration group known as “the Vulcans” planned a bigger drive to crush Communism once and for all. They waged war against the Soviet Union and Iraq under George H.W. Bush, and against Iraq and Afghanistan under George W. Bush. Belonging to this group were Dick Cheney, Don Rumsfeld, Colin Powell, Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Armitage, and Condoleezza Rice. [31]

The Vulcan’s drive to bring an end to the Cold War was fueled by a covert war chest invisible to congressional oversight. [32] This war chest would be known by several names: Black Eagle Trust, the Marcos gold, Yamashita’s Gold, the Golden Lily Treasure, the Durham Trust or Project Hammer.[33] The program also seems to have lined the pockets of the individuals that executed this policy. This was done to the tune of a staggering $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 covert securities used to accomplish the national security objective of ending the Cold War ended up in the vaults of the brokers in the World Trade Center, and were destroyed on September 11, 2001. [36] They came due for settlement and clearing on September 12. The federal Agency investigating these bonds – The Office of Naval Intelligence – was in the section of the Pentagon that was destroyed on 9/11.[37]

To this key group of senior National Security officials called the Vulcans, who had participated in the victory of the economic cold war in 1991, the WTC, the Pentagon, the four airliners and their occupants would became ‘collateral’ damage in the ending of the Cold War. Their deaths were required to hide the existence of the Black Eagle Trust, and the covert activities it had funded for over 50 years.The destruction of these lives and buildings constituted a cover-up of continued lawlessness by a fraternity or brotherhood of businessmen and criminals often referred to as ‘the Enterprise’ in the 1980s, though it has remained in the shadows since.

Numerous sources have documented that at the end of WWII, the treasury of the Japanese Empire was discovered in the Philippines by a staff member of General Charles Willoughby, [Edward Lansdale], who was General MacArthur’s chief of Intelligence. Then known as the Golden Lily Treasure, this mass of wealth had been accumulated by the Japanese through over fifty years of pillaging by its army in Southeast Asia and China. It was 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, not including jewels and diamonds.[40] After the War [Lansdale] tortured Major Kojima Kashii – General Yamashita Tomoyuki’s driver – until he revealed and created a map of the gold sites. [41]

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. It was McCloy, along with Secretary of the Navy Robert B. Anderson and Secretary of War Henry L. Stimson who created the Black Eagle Trust. [42]

John McCloy, who had shared a box at the 1939 Olympics with Adolph Hitler, went on to become President of the World Bank. Robert Anderson would go on to operate the Commercial Exchange Bank in the British West Indies, be convicted of running illegal banking operations and tax evasion, and be sentenced to prison. [43] A fourth member of that group – William ‘Wild Bill’ Donovan – would go on to found the CIA and distribute the gold to key banks represented by his staffers.

The trust they created takes its name from the Nazi Black Eagle stamped on the gold bars of the Third Reich. Gold bullion confiscated from the Reich and not returned to its rightful owners and their heirs was the original source of funding for this trust. [44] Over the years, the significance of the Nazi gold would pale in comparison to the confiscated Japanese treasure.

The men responsible for initiating and executing the confiscation of Nazi and Japanese treasury gold represented 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 they hid their gold in. 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.[58]

Lansdale’s operation in the Philippines gave birth to most of the common features of modern covert operations for U.S. Intelligence: bribery, theft, torture, and false flag operations. It would be Lansdale who would initiate a bond between the US intelligence organizations and Israeli intelligence. It would be Lansdale that would set precedents for the Intelligence community to retain the services of organized crime on U.S. soil. Lansdale would hire American Mafia family heads Carlos Marcello, Santos Trafficante, Meyer Lansky, and Lucky Luciano in the U.S. war against Fidel Castro in 1961.

It would be Lansdale’s team that would propose and justify sacrificing innocent U.S. civilians in order to rally the American citizenry to support an invasion of foreign soil. This was done under a program run by Brigadier General William H. Craig, who reported to Lansdale for the Cuba project. [61] This project was called Operation Northwoods. Documents for this project would be accidentally released from the files of Robert McNamara into the public domain some 40 years later, exposing the degree to which Lansdale’s operatives would go to wage war. [62] These declassified documents revealed secret plans of the U.S. military to wage a fabricated “terror” campaign against US citizens as a pretext to justify a second invasion of Cuba.

Barrick Gold would become an investment for nearly every gold bullion bank associated with the Marcos gold recovery. These banks would loan gold to Barrick, which would then sell the borrowed gold as derivatives, with the promise of replacing the borrowed gold with their gold mining operation. 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 towers. [73]

Taking Control

In November 1980, Ronald Reagan was elected to the White House. Sixty-nine days after the inauguration, John Hinckley attempted to assassinate President Reagan. Eight days prior to that attempt, there were a series of unprecedented policy changes that put George Bush in charge of Foreign Policy and National Security.That conferred new roles and powers on Bush, including "unprecedented powers for a vice president." [85] Vice President George Bush was named the leader of the United States "crisis management'' staff, as a part of the National Security Council system. [86] Then, on March 30, 1981, just eight days after these powers were conferred on Bush, President Reagan was shot.

The father of the assassin that put Bush in power was John (a.k.a. Jack) Hinckley, Sr., the owner of Vanderbilt Oil.Hinckley had been giving maximum donations every year to George H.W. Bush since he started running for Congress. In The Black Hole of Guyana: The Untold Story of the Jonestown Massacre, John Judge painstakingly documents that Jonestown was a CIA operation for converting dispossessed and lonely refugees into assassins. In an operation that was falling under Congressional investigation, the evidence had to be eliminated – and nearly all the inhabitants were murdered to prevent disclosure. [88]

A key player in the Marcos gold would be 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. Alex Brown‘s involvement would bring to the forefront the names of three individuals who would play multiple roles in this mystery: Buzz Krongard, Mayo Shattuck, and J Carter Beese.

Buzz Krongard is reported as the mentor of Beese and Shattuck from their years together at Alex Brown. Additionally, he managed the merger between Bankers Trust and Deutschebank Alex Brown. Bankers Trust, Zurich was a key Marcos gold holder. Krongard would move on to become Chairman of the investment bank A.B. Brown, Vice Chairman of Banker's Trust, and Executive Director of the CIA at the time of September 11.

Mayo Shattuck would be reported to be the personal banker for Adnan Khashoggi and Edgar Bronfmann during their partnership at Barrick Gold. [107] He would move on to become the CEO of Deutschebank who would resign for unexplained reasons the day after September 11, and would not be at the WTC office that day when the tower collapsed. It was his bank that was identified as the source of the illegal stock options that indicated there was insider trading taking advantage of the September 11 tragedy.

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 preparation for their war against Communism, and in the years leading up to the failed – or faux – coup of 1991 which initiated the last days of Gorbachev and the rise of Yeltsin, Bush and a cadre of rogue KGB officials built a complex international network of banks and holding companies that would be used to take over ownership of the Soviet economy. Over 300 of these KGB turncoats who supported this operation would later be re-located to the US in the early 1990s and pensioned. [111] Periodic CIA reports to Congress would review KGB and organized crime complicity in the takeover of Russia by criminal elements, but all mention of the formidable role of the U.S. would be expunged from Congressional oversight and the public record. [112]

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). [113] The gold was ‘stolen’ in March of 1991, facilitated 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. banking industry and the CIA.

In the second phase, Wanta, George Soros and a group of Bush appointees would begin to destabilize the ruble. There were two major operations: the largest was coordinated by Alan Greenspan and Oliver North, and implemented by Leo Wanta.

The 9/11 Cover-up and the Black Eagle Trust

With an understanding of the economic war being waged on the Soviet Union, the focus needs to turn to reports that on September 11, 1991, President George Bush was responsible for issuing $240 billion dollars in secretive bonds as a part of this attack on the Russian ruble. There are six lines of evidence from eight sources that suggest this was indeed the case. Many of these instances are corroborated with documents available on the Internet, presented by those making the claims. [174]

The bonds sat for ten years, like a ticking time bomb. They had to be settled – or cashed in by 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 9/11, those same three organizations: the two largest government securities brokers and the Office of Naval Intelligence in the US took 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.In addition to the investigative evidence being destroyed, the Federal Register reported that the physical securities held by the brokers in their vaults had been destroyed.

What would be 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 9/11, 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. 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.

The Federal Reserve Suspends the Rules

On the first day of the crisis, the SEC lifted “Rule 15c3-3: Customer Protection – Reserves and Custody of Securities.” Thus GSCC [Government Securities Clearing Corporation] was thus allowed to substitute other securities for the physical securities destroyed during the attack. “…collateral substitutions can and should be made with regard to immediately maturing collateral.” [191] At this point in time, 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 original bad securities had come from, or where the new securities went– all because the paper for the primary brokers for US securities had been eliminated.

A review of the explanations for the actions of the Federal Reserve after September 11th exposes an amazingly complex web of analysis and speculation. 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. While impressive as the reports are, what is noted by the casual reader is that all of the Federal Reserve analysis is speculative and suggestive, using phraseology such as “may have,” “likely,” “presumably,” or “should have.” There are few – if any – definitive statements about root cause and the appropriateness of the Federal Reserve response.

While the Fed was reporting outstanding account balances of over $100 billion per day (while not identifying the banks involved), the Wall Street Journal reported that at one point during the week after 9/11, BoNY was publicly reported to be overdue on $100 billion in payments. [198] The Deutschebank, which sat inside the WTC and was totally decimated, reported no such account balance increase, and JP Morgan, the other of only two clearing banks which uses the same traders and communications hub, reported no such increase in its account balance. No one has publicly asked: why is it that these other two banks were not seriously disrupted, while the Bank of New York – which had no structural damage – seemed unable to operate?

Certain key unknown figures in the Federal Reserve may have ‘conspired’ 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 BoNY. The $100 billion account balance bubble reported by the Wall Street Journal as being experienced in the BoNY was tip of a three day operation, when these securities were moved from off-balance-sheet to the balance sheet.

[As reported on page 12 of a Federal Reserve document] “In the absence of complete information on deliveries into and out of its account at BoNY on September 11, and as a result of its assumption of settlement fails on the starting legs of blind-brokered RPs, GSCC recorded (after the close of business on September 11) $266 billion in transactions that apparently failed to settle.… Continuing connectivity problems prevented GSCC from giving BoNY delivery instructions after the close of business on September 11 and prevented it from acquiring information on activity in its account at BoNY during the day on September 12. Consequently, GSCC recorded $440 billion in settlement fails as of the close of business on September 12.” [201]

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. Overall transactions for the day of 9/11 were seemingly down even more significantly than volume, but the transactions that came in after closing were extremely large, averaging in size in packages of $35 million or more. This would be consistent with a hypothesis that $240 billion of securities were being pushed surreptitiously into the money supply.

The Federal Reserve, without providing the detail required to substantiate it’s claims, would have the public believe that there were widespread liquidity issues, when in fact the issues were very concentrated primarily, if not singularly, in the BoNY, which has been the subject of an ongoing major money-laundering investigation for many years. These account balance issues resulted in the defacto expansion of the monetary supply, details of which are no longer reported by the Federal Reserve.

The reported cause of this market malfunction is seemingly suspect. By comparison, the Deutschebank which sat inside the World Trade Center reported no such account balance increase, and JP Morgan, the other of two clearing banks which uses the same traders and communications hub, reported no such increase in account balance. Additionally, while problems were being documented between the BoNY and GCSS, no other institution had those problems.

There is a contention that at the core of the September 11th attack, someone was planning to cover the 1991 issuance of $240 billion in covert securities used to finance the collapse the Soviet Union. The facts surrounding the financial aftermath of September 11 suggest this is not only possible, but that reports describing the aftermath have deliberately been misleading.

  • The US dollar money supply was significantly increased in the aftermath of 9/11;
  • The bank at the core of the illegal money laundering by ex-Soviet criminals was the source of the increased money supply (BoNY);
  • The generally disseminated rationale for BoNY’s operational problems seems to have affected no other bank in a similar manner or magnitude and is inconsistent with reports on the BoNY operations in the aftermath;
  • A key witness who might provide insight to these issues is a statistically aberrant death;
  • The source of the BoNY’s $330 billion increase in assets is cloaked under the privilege of “private banking;”
  • The only alleged “severe” disruption to the financial systems was the Federal Reserves account balance and the securities trading fails – both systems required to hide the laundering of $240 billion in covert securities.

This is not a ‘proof’ that $240 billion was laundered, but it provides probable cause for paying serious attention.

Conclusion

History has many interpretations, and this report has been just one of many – an interpretation pieced together from the bold admissions and revelations of insiders, whose stories have been ignored and suppressed by the major media organizations. It is an interpretation of history that suggests a few determined men strove to change the world in defense of Western capitalism in ways which they felt needed to be hidden from the public. Whatever emotion or logic that was adequate to cause them to hide their actions from the public was not strong enough to prevent them from committing the acts.

Of the banksters by the banksters and for the banksters

June 9th, 2011 by

INDEPENDENT RESEARCHER CLAY DOUGLAS EXPLAINS

WHEN AND HOW THE BANKSTERS TOOK CONTROL OF AMERICA

watch?v=39nSrC_UfdM&feature=player_embedded

Under the doctrine of Parens Patriae, "Government As Parent", as a result of the manipulated bankruptcy of the United States of America in 1930, ALL the assets of the American people, their person, and of our country itself are held by the Depository Trust Corporation at 55 Water Street, NY, NY, secured by UCC Commercial Liens, which are then monetized as "debt money" by the Federal Reserve. It may interest you to know that under the umbrella of the Depository Trust Corporation lies the CEDE Corporation, the Federal Reserve Corporation, the American Bar Association, the legal arm of the banking interests, and the Internal Revenue Service, the system's collection agency.

Did you ever hear of the Independent Treasury Act of 1920?

The Independent Treasury Act of 1920 suspended the de jure (meaning "by right of legal establishment") Treasury Department of the United States government. Our Congress turned the treasury department over to a private corporation, which when seen in its true light, is a fascist monopolistic cartel, the Federal Reserve and their agents. The bulk of the ownership of the Federal Reserve System, a very well kept secret from the American Citizen, is held by these banking interests, and NONE is held by the United States Treasury:

Rothschild Bank of London,

Rothschild Bank of Berlin,

Warburg Bank of Hamburg,

Warburg Bank of Amsterdam,

Lazard Brothers of Paris,

Israel Moses Seif Banks of Italy,

Chase Manhattan Bank of New York,

Goldman, Sachs of New York,

Lehman Brothers of New York,

Kuhn Loeb Bank of New York,

The Federal Reserve is at the root of most of our present statutory regulations, "laws", in the control and regulation of virtually all aspects of human activity in the United States, through successively socialistic constructions laid upon the Commerce clause of the Constitution. Basically, the Federal Reserve is the "STATE" of the United States.

All our law is private law, written by The National Law Institute, Law Professors, and the Bar Association, the Agents of Foreign Banking interests. They have come to this position of writing the law by fraudulently deleting the "Titles of Nobility and Honour" Thirteenth Amendment from the Constitution for the United States, creating an oligarchy of Lawyers and Bankers controlling all three branches of our government. Most of our law comes directly through the Hague or the U.N. Almost all U.N. treaties have been codified into the U.S. codes. That's where all our educational programs originate. The U.N. controls our education system.

[The creation of the Executive Branch policy enforcement brigade]
The Federal Register Act was created by Pres. Roosevelt in 1935. Title 3 sec. 301 et seq. by Executive Order. He gave himself the power to create federal agencies and appoint a head of the agency. He then re-delegated his authority to make law (statutory regulations) to those agency heads. One big problem there, the president has no constitutional authority to make law. Under the Constitution re-delegation of delegated authority is a felony breach.

The president then gave the agencies the authority to tax. We now have government by appointment running this country. This is the shadow government sometimes spoken about, but never referred to as government by appointment. This type of government represents taxation without representation.

How does this relate to the chemtrail assault that Mr Douglas [and many others] exposed?

From How the Federal Reserve Banksters Stole our Gold:

From Dr Schroder:

“To summarize briefly: On March 9,1933 the American people in all their domestic, daily, and commercial transactions became the same as the enemy. The President of the united States, through licenses or any other form, was given the power to regulate and control the actions of enemies. He made We, the People, chattel property; he seized our gold, our property and our rights; and he suspended the Constitution.

And we know that current law, to this day, says that all proclamations issued heretofore or hereafter by the President or the Secretary of the Treasury are approved and confirmed by Congress.”

U. N. Agreement Should Have All Gun Owners Up In Arms

June 9th, 2011 by

 

http://blogs.forbes.com/larrybell/2011/06/07/u-n-agreement

-should-have-all-gun-owners-up-in-arms/

 

OP/ED Larry Bell

It may not come as surprising news to many of you that the United Nations does not approve of our Second Amendment. Not one bit. And they very much hope to do something about it with help from some powerful American friends. Under the guise of a proposed global “Small Arms Treaty” premised to fight “terrorism”, “insurgency” and “international crime syndicates” you can be quite certain that an even more insidious threat is being targeted – our Constitutional right for law-abiding citizens to own and bear arms.

What, exactly, does the intended agreement entail?

While the terms have yet to be made public, if passed by the U.N. and ratified by our Senate, it will almost certainly force the U.S. to:

  1. Enact tougher licensing requirements, creating additional bureaucratic red tape for legal firearms ownership.
  2. Confiscate and destroy all “unauthorized” civilian firearms (exempting those owned by our government of course).
  3. Ban the trade, sale and private ownership of all semi-automatic weapons (any that have magazines even though they still operate in the same one trigger pull – one single “bang” manner as revolvers, a simple fact the ant-gun media never seem to grasp).
  4. Create an international gun registry, clearly setting the stage for full-scale gun confiscation.
  5. In short, overriding our national sovereignty, and in the process, providing license for the federal government to assert preemptive powers over state regulatory powers guaranteed by the Tenth Amendment in addition to our Second Amendment rights.

 

Have no doubt that this plan is very real, with strong Obama administration support. In January 2010, the U.S. joined 152 other countries in endorsing a U.N. Arms Treaty Resolution that will establish a 2012 conference to draft a blueprint for enactment. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has pledged to push for Senate ratification.

Former U.N. ambassador John Bolton has cautioned gun owners to take this initiative seriously, stating that the U.N. “is trying to act as though this is really just a treaty about international arms trade between nation states, but there is no doubt that the real agenda here is domestic firearms control.”

Although professing to support the Second Amendment during her presidential election bid, Hillary Clinton is not generally known as a gun rights enthusiast. She has been a long-time activist for federal firearms licensing and registration, and a vigorous opponent of state Right-to-Carry laws. As a New York senator, she ranked among the National Rifle Association’s worst “F”-rated gun banners who voted to support the sort of gunpoint disarmament that marked New Orleans’ rogue police actions against law-abiding gun owners in the anarchistic aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

President Obama’s record on citizen gun rights does not reflect much advocacy either. Consider for example his appointment of anti-gun rights former Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels as an alternate U.S. representative to the U.N., and his choice of Andrew Traver who has worked to terminate civilian ownership of so-called “assault rifles” (another prejudicially meaningless gun term) to head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Then, in a move unprecedented in American history, the Obama administration quietly banned the re-importation and sale of 850,000 collectable antique U.S.-manufactured M1 Garand and Carbine rifles that were left in South Korea following the Korean War. Developed in the 1930s, the venerable M1 Garand carried the U.S. through World War II, seeing action in every major battle.

As an Illinois state senator, Barack Obama was an aggressive advocate for expanding gun control laws, and even voted against legislation giving gun owners an affirmative defense when they use firearms to defend themselves and their families against home invaders and burglars. He also served on a 10-member board of directors of the radically activist anti-gun Joyce Foundation in Chicago during a period between 1998-2001when it contributed $18,326,183 in grants to anti-Second Amendment organizations.

If someone breaks into your home when you are there, which would you prefer to have close at hand: 1) a telephone to call 911, or 2) a loaded gun of respectable caliber? That is a pretty easy question for me to answer. I am a long-time NRA member, concealed firearms license holder and a regular weekly recreational pistol shooter. And while I do not ordinarily care to target anything that has a mother, will reluctantly make an exception should an urgent provocation arise. I also happen to enjoy the company of friends who hunt, as well as those, like myself, who share an abiding interest in American history and the firearms that influenced it.

There are many like me, and fewer of them would be alive today were it not for exercise of their gun rights. In fact, law-abiding citizens in America used guns in self-defense 2.5 million times during 1993 (about 6,850 times per day), and actually shot and killed 2 1/2 times as many criminals as police did (1,527 to 606). Those civilian self-defense shootings resulted in less than 1/5th as many incidents as police where an innocent person was mistakenly identified as a criminal (2% versus 11%).

Just how effectively have gun bans worked to make citizens safer in other countries? Take the number of home break-ins while residents are present as an indication. In Canada and Britain, both with tough gun-control laws, nearly half of all burglaries occur when residents are present. But in the U.S. where many households are armed, only about 13% happen when someone is home.

Recognizing clear statistical benefit evidence, 41 states now allow competent, law-abiding adults to carry permitted or permit-exempt concealed handguns. As a result, crime rates in those states have typically fallen at least 10% in the year following enactment.

So the majority in our Senate is smart enough to realize that the U.N.’s gun-grab agenda is unconstitutional, politically suicidal for those who support it, and down-right idiotic—right? Let’s hope so, but not entirely count on it. While a few loyal Obama Democrats are truly “pro-gun”, many are loathe to vote against treaties that carry the president’s international prestige, causing him embarrassment.

Also, don’t forget that Senate confirmation of anti-gun Obama nominee Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor. Many within the few who voted against her did so only because of massive grassroots pressure from constituents who take their Constitutional protections very seriously.

Now, more than ever, it’s imperative to stick by our guns in demanding that all Constitutional rights be preserved. If not, we will surely lose both.

Surely, by now, all of my readers should know what I think about this kind of crap, but the urge to express my contempt for all politicians who engage in this kind of back-door legislation is more than I can bare. I sincerely hope that this does not come to pass in my lifetime, because I really don’t want to hurt some dumb-ass young cop.

WOW –  Linda Hunnicutt has done it again –  This Granny Warrior is armed and ready for battle! Where are the younger Americans who will join with her?   Most likely standing in line for the latest technological gadgets – or to try out for some reality or talent show,  or high on illicit drugs, OR JUST SITTING ON THEIR ASS WATCHING TV.

WELCOME TO THE UNITED STATES OF CHINA

IF THE FOLLOWING ARTICLE DOESN'T BRING OUT THE FIGHT IN YOU THEN YOU ARE INDEED A NWO CITIZEN, a fluoride depleted human? brainwashed? dumbed down or just plain stupid, selfish and self centered with no care for your fellow human being or your own country. Our ancestors fought and died for us to be in a free country and I suspect they expected us to carry on their mission not just give the most beautiful country in the world away making it's citizens prisoners of the elite rulers.

What can we do about it? Write, call, visit your Representatives. Make them know you will not tolerate such crap in your state and country. It is time to put it to the wall, what ever is necessary to let them know the UN nor DC will not be allowed to give away or sell our country. They (congress and senate) have already sold most of our national parks to foreign countries mainly China.. as well as our infrastructure as in Toll Roads etc.. This crap has to cease and the ones that are already established destroyed.. thrown out.. erased.. the contracts canceled.

It is time for us to gather together in neighborhoods, form groups to visit these useless eaters in Washington and our State capitols. Time to stop their insane rule and inane banter which we accept as promises which will be carried out.. Time to face realism and see with clear eyes.. time to give up our self image of "liberal, understanding & caring " people.. We cannot win with the liberal mindset that has prevailed only because it is so much easier to accept it than to fight and tell the preachers of such garbage they are full of crap and a chicken crap bunch of spineless jellyfish…

If you are thinking hell it's only 50 sq miles, then stop and take a good look at San Francisco and China town.. that will be your back yard and it keeps expanding.. growing like a fungus..

THE CHINESE FUNGUS IS COMING TO YOUR PART OF TOWN…. BET ON IT IF ONE IS ALLOWED TO BE BUILT IT WILL ONLY BE A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE THEY WILL BE SPRINGING UP ALL OVER….

China Wants To Construct A 50 Square Mile Self-Sustaining City South Of Boise, Idaho

Tuesday, June 07, 2011 8:54

Thanks to the trillions of dollars that the Chinese have made flooding our shores with cheap products, China is now in a position of tremendous economic power.  So what is China going to do with all of that money?  One thing that they have decided to do is to buy up pieces of the United States and set up "special economic zones" inside our country from which they can continue to extend their economic domination.  One of these "special economic zones" would be just south of Boise, Idaho and the Idaho government is eager to give it to them.  China National Machinery Industry Corporation (Sinomach for short) plans to construct a "technology zone" south of Boise Airport which would ultimately be up to 50 square miles in size.  The Chinese Communist Party is the majority owner of Sinomach, so the 10,000 to 30,000 acre "self-sustaining city" that is being planned would essentially belong to the Chinese government. The planned "self-sustaining city" in Idaho would include manufacturing facilities, warehouses, retail centers and large numbers of homes for Chinese workers.  Basically it would be a slice of communist China dropped right into the middle of the United States.

According to the Idaho Statesman, the idea would be to build a self-contained city with all services included.  It would be modeled after the "special economic zones" that currently exist in China.

Perhaps the most famous of these "special economic zones" is Shenzhen.  Back in the 1970s, Shenzhen was just a very small fishing village.  Today it is a sprawling metropolis of over 14 million people.

If the Chinese have their way, we will soon be seeing these "special economic zones" pop up all over the United States.

So exactly who is "Sinomach"?

The following description of the company comes directly from the website of Sinomach….

With approval of the State Council, China National Machinery Industry Corporation (SINOMACH) was established in January 1997. SINO-MACH is a large scale, state-owned enterprise group under the supervision of the State Assets Supervision and Administration Commission.

As you can see, Sinomach is basically an arm of the Chinese government.

The borrower is always the servant of the lender, and now China is buying up America.

The reality is that Sinomach is not looking only at Idaho.  Sinomach is in discussions to develop "special economic zones" all over the United States.

Sinomach has recently dispatched delegations to Ohio, Michigan and Pennsylvania to explore the possibility of establishing "special economic zones" in those states.

Will such "self-contained communities" soon start appearing from coast to coast?

According to Dr. Jerome Corsi, the U.S. government has already set up 257 "foreign trade zones" across America.  These "foreign trade zones" will apparently be given "special U.S. customs treatment" and will be used to promote global free trade….

"The FTZs tend to be located near airports, with easy access into the continental NAFTA and WTO multi-modal transportation systems being created to move free-trade goods cheaply, quickly and efficiently throughout the continent of North America."

So what do our politicians think about all of this?

Most of them are greatly in favor of it.

"Idaho’s the last state that should say we don’t want to do business with Asia," Idaho Lt. Gov. Brad Little said last year. "Asia’s where the money is."

So will all of this "foreign investment" really bring jobs back to the American people?

Perhaps a few, but the truth is that these "special economic zones" that the Chinese are setting up are designed to be self-contained communist Chinese communities.  Some Americans will likely be employed in these areas, but not nearly as many as our politicians would have you to believe.

In addition, these "special economic zones" represent a massive national security threat.  The communist Chinese could potentially be able to bring in and store massive amounts of military equipment virtually undetected.

In the days of the Cold War, we would have never dreamed of giving the Russians a 50 square mile city in the middle of Idaho.

But today we have become convinced that the communist Chinese want to be our great friends.

The following quote originally appeared in the Idaho Statesman, but has since apparently been taken down….

"The Chinese are looking for a beachhead in the United States," said Idaho Commerce Secretary Don Dietrich. "Idaho is ready to give them one."

Indeed.

If relations between the U.S. and China go south someday, we will deeply regret giving China so many open doors.

The truth is that you can never fully trust the communist Chinese.  Their top military officers talk about a coming conflict with the United States all the time.  China is extremely interested in North America.  In fact, the Chinese and the Mexicans have even been holding talks on military cooperation.

But even if you don't consider the communist Chinese to be a military threat, you should be deeply concerned about the economic implications of what is happening.

Today, tens of millions of Americans are wondering why the economy is so bad.

Well, there are a lot of reasons, but the fact that we have sent China thousands of our factories, millions of our jobs and trillions of dollars of our national wealth is a major contributing factor.

If you do not know the truth about how badly the Chinese economy is wiping the floor with the American economy then you need to read this article: "40 Signs The Chinese Economy Is Beating The Living Daylights Out Of The U.S. Economy".

Beautiful new infrastructure is going up all over China today, and meanwhile many of our once great manufacturing cities are turning into rotted-out war zones.

China would not be what they are today if we had insisted that they abandon the communist system and respect basic human rights before we ever opened up trade with them.

But that did not happen.  Instead we enthusiastically welcomed China into the WTO and we let the predatory Chinese system run wild.

In 2010, China had a "current account balance" of over 272 billion dollars, which was the largest in the world.

In 2010, the United States had a "current account balance" of negative 561 billion dollars.  According to the CIA world fact book, that put us in last place in the entire world. In fact, our negative current account balance was more than 9 times larger than anyone else in the world.  If you go check out this chart it will give you a really good idea of how nightmarish our trade situation has become.

The world is changing and nothing is ever going to be the same again.

Just ask the residents of Boise, Idaho – they are about to have a 50 square mile self-contained communist Chinese city plopped right into their back yard.

NOTE FOREIGN TRADE ZONES ARE CONSIDERED FOREIGN SOIL !

IF YOU DON'T CHANGE THIS NOW YOUR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN WILL BE LIVING IN A 3RD WORLD COUNTRY, FILTHY, POOR, HUNGRY AND DOMINATED BY THE ELITE, GROVELING JUST TO SURVIVE without even a weapon to defend themselves with.

The Federal Reserve Cartel Freemasons and The House of Rothschild

June 8th, 2011 by

 

 

Part two of a four-part series

http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=25179                                                                                                   

by Dean Henderson

In 1789 Alexander Hamilton became the first Treasury Secretary of the United States.  Hamilton was one of many Founding Fathers who were Freemasons.  He had close relations with the Rothschild family which owns the Bank of England and leads the European Freemason movement.  George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, John Jay, Ethan Allen, Samuel Adams, Patrick Henry, John Brown and Roger Sherman were all Masons.

Roger Livingston helped Sherman and Franklin write the Declaration of Independence.  He gave George Washington his oaths of office while he was Grand Master of the New York Grand Lodge of Freemasons.  Washington himself was Grand Master of the Virginia Lodge.  Of the General Officers in the Revolutionary Army, thirty-three were Masons.  This was highly symbolic since 33rd Degree Masons become Illuminated. [1]

 

Populist founding fathers led by John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and Thomas Paine- none of whom were Masons- wanted to completely severe ties with the British Crown, but were overruled by the Masonic faction led by Washington, Hamilton and Grand Master of the St. Andrews Lodge in Boston General Joseph Warren, who wanted to “defy Parliament but remain loyal to the Crown”.  St. Andrews Lodge was the hub of New World Masonry and began issuing Knights Templar Degrees in 1769. [2] 

 

All US Masonic lodges are to this day warranted by the British Crown, whom they serve as a global intelligence and counterrevolutionary subversion network.  Their most recent initiative is the Masonic Child Identification Program (CHIP). According to Wikipedia, the CHIP programs allow parents the opportunity to create a kit of identifying materials for their child, free of charge. The kit contains a fingerprint card, a physical description, a video, computer disk, or DVD of the child, a dental imprint, and a DNA sample.

 

The First Continental Congress convened in Philadelphia in 1774 under the Presidency of Peyton Randolph, who succeeded Washington as Grand Master of the Virginia Lodge.  The Second Continental Congress convened in 1775 under the Presidency of Freemason John Hancock.  Peyton’s brother William succeeded him as Virginia Lodge Grand Master and became the leading proponent of centralization and federalism at the First Constitutional Convention in 1787.  The federalism at the heart of the US Constitution is identical to the federalism laid out in the Freemason’s Anderson’s Constitutions of 1723.  William Randolph became the nation’s first Attorney General and Secretary of State under George Washington.  His family returned to England loyal to the Crown.  John Marshall, the nation’s first Supreme Court Justice, was also a Mason. [3] 

 

When Benjamin Franklin journeyed to France to seek financial help for American revolutionaries, his meetings took place at Rothschild banks.  He brokered arms sales via German Mason Baron von Steuben.  His Committees of Correspondence operated through Freemason channels and paralleled a British spy network.  In 1776 Franklin became de factoAmbassador to France.  In 1779 he became Grand Master of the French Neuf Soeurs (Nine Sisters) Lodge, to which John Paul Jones and Voltaire belonged.  Franklin was also a member of the more secretive Royal Lodge of Commanders of the Temple West of Carcasonne, whose members included Frederick Prince of Whales.  While Franklin preached temperance in the US, he cavorted wildly with his Lodge brothers in Europe.  Franklin served as Postmaster General from the 1750’s to 1775 – a role traditionally relegated to British spies. [4]

 

With Rothschild financing Alexander Hamilton founded two New York banks, including Bank of New York. [5]  He died in a gun battle with Aaron Burr, who founded Bank of Manhattan with Kuhn Loeb financing.  Hamilton exemplified the contempt which the Eight Families hold towards common people, once stating, “All communities divide themselves into the few and the many.  The first are the rich and the well born, the others the mass of the people…The people are turbulent and changing; they seldom judge and determine right.  Give therefore to the first class a distinct, permanent share of government.  They will check the unsteadiness of the second.”[6]

 

Hamilton was only the first in a series of Eight Families cronies to hold the key position of Treasury Secretary.  In recent times Kennedy Treasury Secretary Douglas Dillon came from Dillon Read (now part of UBS Warburg).  Nixon Treasury Secretaries David Kennedy and William Simon came from Continental Illinois Bank (now part of Bank of America) and Salomon Brothers (now part of Citigroup), respectively.  Carter Treasury Secretary Michael Blumenthal came from Goldman Sachs, Reagan Treasury Secretary Donald Regan came from Merrill Lynch (now part of Bank of America), Bush Sr. Treasury Secretary Nicholas Brady came from Dillon Read (UBS Warburg) and both Clinton Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin and Bush Jr. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson came from Goldman Sachs.  Obama Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner worked at Kissinger Associates and the New York Fed.

 

Thomas Jefferson argued that the United States needed a publicly-owned central bank so that European monarchs and aristocrats could not use the printing of money to control the affairs of the new nation.  Jefferson extolled, “A country which expects to remain ignorant and free…expects that which has never been and that which will never be.  There is scarcely a King in a hundred who would not, if he could, follow the example of Pharaoh – get first all the people’s money, then all their lands and then make them and their children servants forever…banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies.  Already they have raised up a money aristocracy.”  Jefferson watched as the Euro-banking conspiracy to control the United States unfolded, weighing in, “Single acts of tyranny may be ascribed to the accidental opinion of the day, but a series of oppressions begun at a distinguished period, unalterable through every change of ministers, too plainly prove a deliberate, systematic plan of reducing us to slavery”. [7[

 

But the Rothschild-sponsored Hamilton’s arguments for a private US central bank carried the day.  In 1791 the Bank of the United States (BUS) was founded, with the Rothschilds as main owners.  The bank’s charter was to run out in 1811.  Public opinion ran in favor of revoking the charter and replacing it with a Jeffersonian public central bank.  The debate was postponed as the nation was plunged by the Euro-bankers into the War of 1812.  Amidst a climate of fear and economic hardship, Hamilton’s bank got its charter renewed in 1816.

 

Old Hickory, Honest Abe & Camelot

 

In 1828 Andrew Jackson took a run at the US Presidency.  Throughout his campaign he railed against the international bankers who controlled the BUS.  Jackson ranted, “You are a den of vipers.  I intend to expose you and by Eternal God I will rout you out.  If the people understood the rank injustices of our money and banking system there would be a revolution before morning.”

 

Jackson won the election and revoked the bank’s charter stating, “The Act seems to be predicated on an erroneous idea that the present shareholders have a prescriptive right to not only the favor, but the bounty of the government…for their benefit does this Act exclude the whole American people from competition in the purchase of this monopoly.  Present stockholders and those inheriting their rights as successors be established a privileged order, clothed both with great political power and enjoying immense pecuniary advantages from their connection with government.  Should its influence be concentrated under the operation of such an Act as this, in the hands of a self-elected directory whose interests are identified with those of the foreign stockholders, will there not be cause to tremble for the independence of our country in war…controlling our currency, receiving our public monies and holding thousands of our citizens independence, it would be more formidable and dangerous than the naval and military power of the enemy.  It is to be regretted that the rich and powerful too often bend the acts of government for selfish purposes…to make the rich richer and more powerful.  Many of our rich men have not been content with equal protection and equal benefits, but have besought us to make them richer by acts of Congress.  I have done my duty to this country.”[8]

 

Populism prevailed and Jackson was re-elected.  In 1835 he was the target of an assassination attempt.  The gunman was Richard Lawrence, who confessed that he was, “in touch with the powers in Europe”. [9] 

 

Still, in 1836 Jackson refused to renew the BUS charter.  Under his watch the US national debt went to zero for the first and last time in our nation’s history.  This angered the international bankers, whose primary income is derived from interest payments on debt.  BUS President Nicholas Biddle cut off funding to the US government in 1842, plunging the US into a depression.  Biddle was an agent for the Paris-based Jacob Rothschild. [10]

 

The Mexican War was simultaneously sprung on Jackson.  A few years later the Civil War was unleashed, with London bankers backing the Union and French bankers backing the South. The Lehman family made a fortune smuggling arms to the south and cotton to the north.  By 1861 the US was $100 million in debt.  New President Abraham Lincoln snubbed the Euro-bankers again, issuing Lincoln Greenbacks to pay Union Army bills. 

 

The Rothschild-controlled Times of London wrote, “If that mischievous policy, which had its origins in the North American Republic, should become indurated down to a fixture, then that Government will furnish its own money without cost.  It will pay off its debts and be without debt.  It will have all the money necessary to carry on its commerce.  It will become prosperous beyond precedent in the history of the civilized governments of the world.  The brains and the wealth of all countries will go to North America.  That government must be destroyed, or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe.” [11]

 

The Euro-banker-written Hazard Circular was exposed and circulated throughout the country by angry populists.  It stated, “The great debt that capitalists will see is made out of the war and must be used to control the valve of money.  To accomplish this government bonds must be used as a banking basis.  We are now awaiting Secretary of Treasury Salmon Chase to make that recommendation.  It will not allow Greenbacks to circulate as money as we cannot control that.  We control bonds and through them banking issues”.

 

The 1863 National Banking Act reinstated a private US central bank and Chase’s war bonds were issued.  Lincoln was re-elected the next year, vowing to repeal the act after he took his January 1865 oaths of office.  Before he could act, he was assassinated at the Ford Theatre by John Wilkes Booth.  Booth had major connections to the international bankers.  His granddaughter wrote This One Mad Act, which details Booth’s contact with “mysterious Europeans” just before the Lincoln assassination.

 

Following the Lincoln hit, Booth was whisked away by members of a secret society known as Knights of the Golden Circle (KGC).  KGC had close ties to the French Society of Seasons, which produced Karl Marx.  KGC had fomented much of the tension that caused the Civil War and President Lincoln had specifically targeted the group.  Booth was a KGC member and was connected through Confederate Secretary of State Judah Benjamin to the House of Rothschild.  Benjamin fled to England after the Civil War. [12]

 

Nearly a century after Lincoln was assassinated for issuing Greenbacks, President John F. Kennedy found himself in the Eight Families’ crosshairs.  Kennedy had announced a crackdown on off-shore tax havens and proposed increases in tax rates on large oil and mining companies.  He supported eliminating tax loopholes which benefit the super-rich.  His economic policies were publicly attacked by Fortune magazine, the Wall Street Journal and both David and Nelson Rockefeller.  Even Kennedy’s own Treasury Secretary Douglas Dillon, who came from the UBS Warburg-controlled Dillon Read investment bank, voiced opposition to the JFK proposals. [13]

 

Kennedy’s fate was sealed in June 1963 when he authorized the issuance of more than $4 billion in United States Notes by his Treasury Department in an attempt to circumvent the high interest rate usury of the private Federal Reserve international banker crowd.  The wife of Lee Harvey Oswald, who was conveniently gunned down by Jack Ruby before Ruby himself was shot, told author A. J. Weberman in 1994, “The answer to the Kennedy assassination is with the Federal Reserve Bank.  Don’t underestimate that.  It’s wrong to blame it on Angleton and the CIA per se only.  This is only one finger on the same hand.  The people who supply the money are above the CIA”. [14]

 

Fueled by incoming President Lyndon Johnson’s immediate escalation of the Vietnam War, the US sank further into debt. Its citizens were terrorized into silence.  If they could kill the President they could kill anyone.

 

The House of Rothschild

 

The Dutch House of Orange founded the Bank of Amsterdam in 1609 as the world’s first central bank.  Prince William of Orange married into the English House of Windsor, taking King James II’s daughter Mary as his bride.  The Orange Order Brotherhood, which recently fomented Northern Ireland Protestant violence, put William III on the English throne where he ruled both Holland and Britain.  In 1694 William III teamed up with the UK aristocracy to launch the private Bank of England.

 

The Old Lady of Threadneedle Street- as the Bank of England is known- is surrounded by thirty foot walls.  Three floors beneath it the third largest stock of gold bullion in the world is stored. [15] 

 

The Rothschilds and their inbred Eight Families partners gradually came to control the Bank of England.  The daily London gold “fixing” occurred at the N. M. Rothschild Bank until 2004.  As Bank of England Deputy Governor George Blunden put it, “Fear is what makes the bank’s powers so acceptable.  The bank is able to exert its influence when people are dependent on us and fear losing their privileges or when they are frightened.”[16]

 

Mayer Amschel Rothschild sold the British government German Hessian mercenaries to fight against American Revolutionaries, diverting the proceeds to his brother Nathan in London, where N.M. (Nathan and Mayer) Rothschild & Sons was established.  Mayer was a serious student of Cabala and launched his fortune on money embezzled from William IX- royal administrator of the Hesse-Kassel region and a prominent Freemason.

 

Rothschild-controlled Barings bankrolled the Chinese opium and African slave trades.  It financed the Louisiana Purchase.  When several states defaulted on its loans, Barings bribed Daniel Webster to make speeches stressing the virtues of loan repayment.  The states held their ground, so the House of Rothschild cut off the money spigot in 1842, plunging the US into a deep depression.  It was often said that the wealth of the Rothschilds depended on the bankruptcy of nations.  Mayer Amschel Rothschild once said, “I care not who controls a nation’s political affairs, so long as I control her currency”.

 

War didn’t hurt the family fortune either.  The House of Rothschild financed the Prussian War, the Crimean War and the British attempt to seize the Suez Canal from the French.  Nathan Rothschild made a huge financial bet on Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo, while also funding the Duke of Wellington’s peninsular campaign against Napoleon.  Both the Mexican War and the Civil War were goldmines for the family.

One Rothschild family biography mentions a London meeting where an “International Banking Syndicate” decided to pit the American North against the South as part of a “divide and conquer” strategy.  German Chancellor Otto von Bismarck once stated, “The division of the United States into federations of equal force was decided long before the Civil War.  These bankers were afraid that the United States…would upset their financial domination over the world.  The voice of the Rothschilds prevailed.”  Rothschild biographer Derek Wilson says the family was the official European banker to the US government and strong supporters of the Bank of the United States. [17] 

 

Family biographer Niall Ferguson notes a “substantial and unexplained gap” in private Rothschild correspondence between 1854-1860.  He says all copies of outgoing letters written by the London Rothschilds during this Civil War period “were destroyed at the orders of successive partners”. [18]

 

French and British troops had, at the height of the Civil War, encircled the US.  The British sent 11,000 troops to Crown-controlled Canada, which gave safe harbor to Confederate agents.  France’s Napoleon III installed Austrian Hapsburg family member Archduke Maximilian as his puppet emperor in Mexico, where French troops massed on the Texas border.  Only an 11th-hour deployment of two Russian warship fleets by US ally Czar Alexander II in 1863 saved the United States from re-colonization. [19] 

 

That same year the Chicago Tribune blasted, “Belmont (August Belmont was a US Rothschild agent and had a Triple Crown horse race named in his honor) and the Rothschilds…who have been buying up Confederate war bonds.”

 

Salmon Rothschild said of a deceased President Lincoln, “He rejects all forms of compromise.  He has the appearance of a peasant and can only tell barroom stories.”  Baron Jacob Rothschild was equally flattering towards the US citizenry.  He once commented to US Minister to Belgium Henry Sanford on the over half a million Americans who died during the Civil War, “When your patient is desperately sick, you try desperate measures, even to bloodletting.”  Salmon and Jacob were merely carrying forth a family tradition.  A few generations earlier Mayer Amschel Rothschild bragged of his investment strategy, “When the streets of Paris are running in blood, I buy”. [20]

 

Mayer Rothschild’s sons were known as the Frankfurt Five.  The eldest – Amschel – ran the family's Frankfurt bank with his father, while Nathan ran London operations.  Youngest son Jacob set up shop in Paris, while Salomon ran the Vienna branch and Karl was off to Naples.  Author Frederick Morton estimates that by 1850 the Rothschilds were worth over $10 billion. [21]  Some researchers believe that their fortune today exceeds $100 trillion.

 

The Warburgs, Kuhn Loebs, Goldman Sachs, Schiffs and Rothschilds have intermarried into one big happy banking family.  The Warburg family- which controls Deutsche Bank and BNP tied up with the Rothschilds in 1814 in Hamburg, while Kuhn Loeb powerhouse Jacob Schiff shared quarters with Rothschilds in 1785.  Schiff immigrated to America in 1865.  He joined forces with Abraham Kuhn and married Solomon Loeb’s daughter.  Loeb and Kuhn married each others sisters and the Kuhn Loeb dynasty was consummated.  Felix Warburg married Jacob Schiff’s daughter.  Two Goldman daughters married two sons of the Sachs family, creating Goldman Sachs.  In 1806 Nathan Rothschild married the oldest daughter of Levi Barent Cohen, a leading financier in London. [22]  Thus, Merrill Lynch super-bull Abby Joseph Cohen and Clinton Secretary of Defense William Cohen are likely descended from Rothschilds.

 

Today the Rothschild’s control a far-flung financial empire, which includes majority stakes in most world central banks.  The Edmond de Rothschild clan owns the Banque Privee SA in Lugano, Switzerland and the Rothschild Bank AG of Zurich.  The family of Jacob Lord Rothschild owns the powerful Rothschild Italia in Milan.  They are founding members of the exclusive $10 trillion Club of the Isles – which controls corporate giants Royal Dutch Shell, Imperial Chemical Industries, Lloyds of London, Unilever, Barclays, Lonrho, Rio Tinto Zinc, BHP Billiton and Anglo American DeBeers. It dominates the world supply of petroleum, gold, diamonds, and many other vital raw materials. [23]

 

The Club of the Isles provides capital for George Soros’ Quantum Fund NV – which made substantial financial gains in 1998-99 following the collapse of currencies of Thailand, Indonesia and Russia.  Soros was a major shareholder at George W. Bush’s Harken Energy.  The Club of Isles is led by the Rothschilds and includes Queen Elizabeth II and other wealthy European aristocrats and Nobility.[24]

 

Perhaps the largest repository for Rothschild wealth today is Rothschilds Continuation Holdings AG – a secretive Swiss-based bank holding company.  By the late 1990s scions of the Rothschild global empire were Barons Guy and Elie de Rothschild in France and Lord Jacob and Sir Evelyn Rothschild in Britain. [25] 

 

Evelyn was chairman of the Economist and a director at DeBeers and IBM UK. 

 

Jacob backed Arnold Schwarzenegger’s California gubernatorial campaign.  He took control of Khodorkovsky’s YUKOS oil shares just before the Russian government arrested him.  In 2010 Jacob joined Rupert Murdoch in a shale oil extraction partnership in Israel through Genie Energy – a subsidiary of IDT Corporation. [26] 

 

Within months, Sarah Palin had hired former IDT executive Michael Glassner as her chief of staff. [27]  Is Palin the Rothschild choice in 2012?

THE GLOBAL CURRENCY WAR

June 8th, 2011 by

 

http://www.newswithviews.com/Ryter/jon328.htm

By Jon Christian Ryter
June 8, 2011
NewsWithViews.com

The Finance Ministers of 187 nations began meeting in Washington, DC on Thursday, Oct. 7, 2010 to discuss the growing concerns that the world is now in the grip of an "international currency war" initiated by China. According to the liberal British newspaper, The Guardian, China's economic policies started the "war" by manipulating its own currency to an unrealistic low. In a media interview at the end of September, Brazil's Finance Minister, Guido Mantega coined the phrase, "international currency war," after the central banks in Japan, South Korea, Switzerland and Taiwan reduced the value of their currencies to make the commodities manufactured in their countries more attractive to foreign buyers. Brazil is one of those nation's impacted by China's currency policies. It's currency is now overvalued, placing Brazil at a disadvantage in the world of global trade.

On Mon., Oct. 4 the Bank of Japan reinstated its zero interest rate policy and pledged to buy ¥5 trillion ($60 billion) of assets. Brazil responded by doubling a Brazilian tax on foreign investors (currency hedge funds like George Soros' Soros Fund Management and Quantum Fund which Soros used to nearly collapse the Bank of England) while cashing in on the declining value of the Euro, earning Soros and an undisclosed group of hedge fund operators in New York hundreds of billions of dollars betting against the Euro).

Soros, like Barack Obama and recently-resigned Obama Chief-of-Staff Rahm Emanuel never lets a good crisis go to waste. It is important to note that currency manipulation—particularly by the Soros-led hedge funds—was one of the triggers that caused what we now know as the global financial crisis of 2008-09. In the pre-global economy days, the shock-waves of local or host-market currency crises were regional rather than global. As banking became more globalized, so too were the consequences of financial shocks waves which now have profound effects across the globe. The Soros run on the Euro actually triggered a decomposition of private capital flows from Europe into the emerging markets, threatening billions of dollars of debt invested by Europeans and Corporate America in the emerging economies in their frantic search for those elusive potential consumers of the 21st century from what is now a global pool of human capital created by 37 years of mistaken social progressive abortion policy. (For every "action" there's a reaction—and for every human folly there is a cost. The loss the Christian industrialized nations are paying for nearly four decades of abortion rights is the loss of our national identities and our national sense of well-being. Welcome to Utopia.)

The catastrophic financial crisis blamed on President George W. Bush was real. It just wasn't real here. It began in 2002 with a slowdown of capital direct investment by US investors in the emerging nations as more US investors, feeling a renewed sense of hope and patriotism about America, invested at home. According to the International Monetary Fund's April, 2009World Economic Outlook Report, the decomposition of private capital flows fueled the fire that created the financial crisis. International capital flow into the emerging economies dropped dramatically between 2007 and 2008—to the tune of about $530 billion, with most of the decline coming from Asia and Europe.

The subprime mortgage collapse in the United States—triggered specifically by hedge fund short sellers (who sold the bottom out of the mortgage industry because they were allowed, by the repeal of the 1934 Uptick Rule, to do so) and the Soros raid on the Euro, were largely responsible for the sudden illiquidity of banks in the industrial world. The illiquidity shock wave reverberated around the world. Central bankers feared a monetary collapse was inevitable if funds were not poured—not into the US and European economies but—into the economies of the emerging nations where financial illiquidity threatened to shatter the global banking infrastructure and cause a domino-collapse of the central banks of the world.

Both the United States and England raced to enact financial crisis bailouts. Both the elected political leaders of the United States and England were lied to by the central bankerswho planned, before one piece of legislation was even proposed, to hijack the bailout funds that American and British taxpayers were told would be used to buoy their local economies, to bolster the second and third world economies that actually threatened to collapse the world's monetary system—literally bankrupting the United States and Europe as it salvaged the economies of the emerging nations where 70% of the world's human capital resides. That human capital, which has nothing and needs everything, is the market upon which the princes of industry and barons of banking and business are pinning their hopes of a profitable 21st century—at the expense of the rest of us. (Can you say, "Thank you, Barack, Nancy and Harry"? ObamaChange, as America is quickly learning, has nothing to do with taking the "surplus" from the rich in the United States and giving that "surplus" to the poor in America. Rather, it is the redistribution of the national wealth of the United States to the third world—tomorrow's consumers of the invisible ultra rich whose names do not appear on the Forbes or Fortune lists of the world's wealthiest people.)

About a week or so before the world's Finance Ministers came to Washington on October 7, 2010, the Institute of International Finance which represents some of the largest banks in the world, urged the International Monetary Fund to take unilateral action after the Bank of Japan moved to lower its interest rates to 0.1% specifically to weaken the yen to in order to better compete with China's yuan. Social progressives, forgetting the lessons of German hyperinflation in the late 1920s and early 1930s, have suggested to the Obama Administration that they have one weapon they can use against China—the printing press. Simply print enough money to pay off America's debt to China with worthless money if China does not revalue the yuan.

Better yet is the measure enacted by a 348-79 vote in the House of Representatives on September 29 (just before the House recessed) that would allow the United States to impose trade sanctions against any nation that manipulates their currency to gain trade advantages. China's devaluation, and that of Japan, makes products manufactured in those two countries much cheaper in the United States and, conversely, makes US products searching for a customer in Japan or China, more expensive. The measure was sent to the Senate just before adjournment. The bill's fate is unknown since its unclear whether the Senate will enact the legislation in the lame duck session after the Nov. 2 elections. Democrats are telling their constituents that the sanctions bill, HR 2194 which amends theTariff Act of 1930 will return millions of jobs to the United States. Republicans realistically know that the sanctions bill, if enacted and signed into law, will add about 10% onto the cost of most Chinese products sold in US stores and will not impact job growth. On the heels of the House passing the measure, China said the legislation contravenes World Trade Organizationrules. Both George W. Bush and Barack Obama have refused to recognize China as a currency manipulator out of fear of retaliation from the country that bought most of America's debt until Obama's rush to destroy the US dollar.

The World Bank entered the money fray on Oct. 7, warning the G-20 nations against launching a global currency war with World Bank president Robert B. Zoellick vying for more international cooperation to stem what looks like a currency war as the Asian rim nations demand greater voting power on currency issues. "Today," Zoellick said, "we face currency tensions. Tensions can lead to trouble if not properly managed…If ever there was a time we should shouldn't turn our backs on international cooperation, it's now. History shows there is no future in 'beggar thy neighbor' policies."Zoellick alluded the international trade wars that broke out during the Great Depression and worsened the economic conditions throughout the industrialized world.

The international currency war began with China devaluing the renminbi (commonly referred to as the yuan) by about 40%, creating the biggest trade distortion in the global economy: America's trade deficit with China. Many currency experts believe that the dispute between the renminbi and the US dollar has such far-reaching consequences that it will impact the currencies of every industrialized nation in the world. That's why the debate at the 2011 G-20 will be focused on the need to engineer a currency accord like the Plaza Accord at the end of the Carter Years in 1980 where a basket of currencies was going to replace the dollar as the world's "currency of last resort," which led to a global devaluation of the US dollar.

French president Nicholas Sarkozy, who will host the 2011 G-20, has already suggested that the United States, the European Union and other unnamed nations should work with China to find a currency accord before the G-20 Conference next year. An attempt to lay out the framework for such an accord, proffered to China this week, was a nonstarter. The one-worlders want to introduce a new currency, issued by the World Bank to ultimately replace all 187 national currencies. China is slightly less ambitious. They want the renminbi (the yuan) to replace the US dollar as the world's reserve currency.

China simply is not interested in negotiating the issue. Zoellick noted that the time has come for resolving trade differences amicably. "There should be a common interest in trying to figure out how to manage this," he said. "Maybe the time has come. Sometimes when you have a moment like this, it's important to try to steer it in constructive direction." Zoellick noted that China has benefited greatly from its undervalued currency while other nations have suffered from it.to leave behind.

Anyway, you slice it, every known government has been under the dominion of those who control the currency, yet every Nation has followed their government to destruction. What in the hell is wrong with humanity, when they refuse to read the history of governments, and suffer the loss of freedom time after time?

It’s not like we’re confronted with a new problem that has never been heard of before folk’s, and the real kicker is, the stupid Nation’s go to war and kill each other, rather than the Bankers.

Mark my words, it’s happening again, and the Banker are laughing their ass off at our stupid obedience to the propaganda they spread.

Soon, you will be sending more of your children to die, and when America goes belly-up, those same children will be sent to herd you into detention camps, prior to your elimination.

History keeps repeating it-self, only this time we have a nappy headed Hitler that needs a teleprompter to give you thrills of Patriotism and Sacrifice. And, in spite of the internet revolution and the thousands of education sites, not one damn site is calling for the Bankers heads.

We should confiscate all of their assets and hang the bastards. There is NO peaceful way out of this cluster f#*k, because they control our military and most of our local law enforcement.

It’s time to poop, or get off the pot!

Lord, send us just ONE brave and erudite general for our cognitive dissonant’s to follow.

Regional War or World War?

The Elite, the 'Great Game' and World War III … The control of the US, and of global politics, by the wealthiest families of the planet is exercised in a powerful, profound and clandestine manner. This control began in Europe and has a continuity that can be traced back to the time when the bankers discovered it was more profitable to give loans to governments than to needy individuals. These banking families and their subservient beneficiaries have come to own most major businesses over the two centuries during which they have secretly and increasingly organised themselves as controllers of governments worldwide and as arbiters of war and peace. Unless we understand this we will be unable to understand the real reasons for the two world wars and the impending Third World War, a war that is almost certain to begin as a consequence of the US attempt to seize and control Central Asia. The only way out is for the US to back off – something the people of the US and the world want, but the elite does not. Mujahid Kamran/New Dawn/Global Research

Dominant Social Theme: The great game is afoot and may end in a global war and nuclear winter.

Free-Market Analysis: We are of two minds about this article. It is very well done and represents a substantial strand of thought that we share; what we do not share, however, are its conclusions. The idea – and we have written about this before – is that the Anglo-American power elite is involved in the "great game;" that they wish for world dominance but intend to achieve it by chasing raw materials and strategic, regional advantages in military terms.

We have a different perspective. For us, Anglo-American elites are after much more than this, and more directly. The old men of the City of London seek to rule the world; their interest has little to do with raw materials and much to do with control over unruly tribes and restive citizens.

As for positioning Western military resources in such a way as to intimidate Russia and China; we are more inclined to believe that there is no great need to intimidate either of these countries. Their leaders and elites may already be on board with the idea of one-world governance. It's mainly the tribes in Eurasia that the elites want to dominate. ThePashtuns, for instance, that the British elites have tried to slay at least twice (and are apparently failing again at doing so). Even the Pakistan Punjabis are not entirely under control.

Having said this, the article is remarkable for its resolute statements as to the way the world really works. Kamran is blunt in his descriptions. "The US is a country controlled through the privately owned Federal Reserve, which in turn is controlled by the handful of banking families that established it by deception in the first place."

That's about as precise a definition as you can make. But he gets even more specific. "The elite owns the media, banks, defense and oil industry. In his book Who's Who of the Elite Robert Gaylon Ross Sr. states: 'It is my opinion that they own the US military, NATO, the Secret Service, the CIA, the Supreme Court, and many of the lower courts. They appear to control, either directly or indirectly, most of the state, county, and local law enforcement agencies.'"

This is our perspective too, arrived at over years and decades – and with increasing astonishment. There's more, though: "The elite is intent on conquering the world through the use of the abilities of the people of the United States. It was as far back as 1774 that Amschel Mayer Rothschild stated at a gathering of the twelve richest men of Prussia in Frankfurt: 'Wars should be directed so that the nations on both sides should be further in our debt.' He further enunciated at the same meeting: 'Panics and financial depressions would ultimately result in World Government, a new order of one world government.'"

Exactly right. It's happening even now. Because these sociopolitical trends are so large and work relatively slowly, it is easy to lose track of them and to attribute them to coincidence and to bad luck. But, in fact, the world's financial system is not an evolutionary one at this point. A few control the many.

Kamran is right about think tanks as well. He writes, "The elite owns numerous 'think tanks' that work for expanding, consolidating and perpetuating its hold on the globe. The Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA), the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), the Bilderberg Group, the Trilateral Commission, and many other similar organisations are all funded by the elite and work for it. These think tanks publish journals, such as Foreign Affairs, in which these imperialist and anti-mankind ideas are edified as publications, and then, if need be, expanded in the form of books that are given wide publicity."

The article points out that 80% of US electronic and print media is owned by only six large corporations, a consolidation that has occurred only in the past 20 years or so. "It is almost impossible for anyone who is acquainted with what is going on at the global level to watch, even for a few minutes, the distortions, lies and fabrications, incessantly pouring out of this media, a propaganda and brainwashing organ of the elite."

Karman gets it right about the ongoing genocides as well. "Once your picture is clear it is also easy to notice the criminal silence of the media on crimes being perpetrated against humanity at the behest of the elite. How many people know that the cancer rates in Fallujah, Iraq are higher than those in Hiroshima and Nagasaki because of the use of depleted uranium, and maybe other secret nuclear devices, by US forces? Fallujah was punished for its heroic resistance against the American forces."

He mentions something we've been meaning to introduce at DB, which is the immense contribution of Sigmund Freud's nephew Edward Bernays to elite plans. Bernays developed the technique of "engineering consent" and "pioneered the use of psychology and other social sciences to shape and form public opinion so that the public thought such manufactured opinions were their own."

The platform for Bernays was the Tavistock Institute, which today has a US$6 billion dollar endowment and "400 subsidiary organisations are under its control along with 3,000 think tanks, mostly in the USA. The Stanford Research Institute, the Hoover Institute, the Aspen Institute of Colorado, and many others, devoted to manipulation of US as well as global public opinion, are Tavistock offshoots. This helps explain why the US public, by and large, is so mesmerised as to be unable to see things clearly and to react."

Well done. Where we think the article off the rails, as we mentioned earlier, has to do with the "great game" in Eurasia. He writes: "In his infinitely arrogant book The Grand Chessboard, published in 1997, Zbigniew Brzezinski spelled out the philosophy behind the current US military eruption. 'Who rules East Europe commands the Heartland: Who rules the Heartland commands the World-Island: who commands the World-Island commands the world.'"

Brzezinski argues that "For America the chief geopolitical prize is Eurasia… About 75 percent of the world's people live in Eurasia… Eurasia accounts for about 60 percent of the world's GNP and about three fourths of the world's known energy resources." And Kamran points out that, "It is not just the geostrategic location of this region – it is also its wealth, 'both in its enterprises and beneath its soil,' that holds such attraction for the elite whose greed for money, and lust for power, remain insatiable, as if there was a sickness afflicting it."

This is our area of disagreement. We have never believed the world is running out of oil, or that, if it were, other energy would not be available. Generally, we tend to think that human beings are flexibly innovative and the are plenty of materials that can be used as the building blocks of civilization. The scarcity meme trotted out virtually everywhere is just that in our view – likely a fear based promotion.

Kamran has a different perspective. He quotes writes about Brzezinski's book, point out that Brzezinski "has drawn two very interesting maps – one of these has the caption The Global Zone of Percolating Violence (page 53) and the other (page 124) is captioned The Eurasian Balkans. The first of these encircles a region which includes the following countries: Sudan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Syria, Iraq, Iran, all Central Asian states, Afghanistan, Pakistan and parts of Russia as well as India. The second one has two circles, an inner circle and a wider circle – the outer circle encloses the same countries as in the first map but the inner circle covers Iran, Afghanistan, eastern Turkey and the former Soviet Republics in Central Asia. …

"This huge region, torn by volatile hatreds and surrounded by competing powerful neighbours, is likely to be a major battlefield … A possible challenge to American primacy from Islamic fundamentalism could be part of the problem of this unstable region."

For Kamran, "The US might face a serious challenge from a coalition of China, Russia and Iran and must do whatever it can to prevent such a coalition from forming.

To his credit, Kamran describes the current phony war on terror as "a well planned and well thought out strategy, a lie and a deception, to provide cover for a military presence in the Central Eurasian region and elsewhere." Further, he believes it is being used to "keep the US public in a state of fear, to keep Russia in a state of insecurity about further breakup and to justify presence of US troops in and around Central Asia."

At this point he introduces another gentleman about whom we have many doubts: Michael Ruppert of Peak Oil fame. Ruppert, he explains, "points out that much of the violence in the Central Asian region as well as in Pakistan, which has been encircled in two maps in Brzezinski's book, was 'initiated by the US proxies.' … Given that these maps were published a full four years before the first plane hit the World Trade Centre, they would fall in a category of evidence I learned about at LAPD [Los Angeles Police Department]. We called them 'clues'."

They are not clues. This is in our humble opinion a deception. There is no such thing as Peak Oil and there is no such thing in this modern day and age as the Great Game. The idea that the Anglo-American elites are engaged in some all out rivalry with Russia and China is simply untrue in our view.

As we wrote recently, Western elites might have in mind a REGIONAL war (even a nuclear war) to be waged between Israel and the Arabs. Presumably, this would expand Israel's sway – and increase the West's power over Islam and Arabia – and has something to do with expanding global government as well. But the idea that the elites of Russia, China and the West hate and fear each other so much that they will engage in worldwide nuclear war (to what purpose?) is simply incorrect in our view.

There is only one Great Game being played we submit. It is aimed at the stiff-necked tribes of Eurasia and of the Middle East and upper Africa a well. These are areas that the Anglosphere elites don't effectively control yet. And that is what this great game is all about. Not oil. Not minerals. Not strategic military objectives. It seeks to Westernize (as much as necessary) the last parts of earth that have escaped dominion.

The good news is that this program is increasingly in chaos. The City of London – arrogant and contemptuous – simply doesn't wish to acknowledge what is increasingly evident to others: That the Internet has changed the rules of engagement. And that they may be losing, not winning.

We track the memes of the elite. But these dominant social themes are not working out in Afghanistan or in Europe. The Pashtun/Taliban are succeeding in fending off the greatest army ever assembled in the modern era and in Europe the euro continues to crumble. In fact, the entire insidious strategy of world domination that Western elites have been pursuing over the past 300 or so years has been exposed on the Internet – and thus has become far more difficult to implement.

Millions, even tens of millions understand it – and as the Internet is process not an episode, even more will understand tomorrow. It is impossible to create world government in secret when so many are tracking and tracing your every move.

We want to state our admiration for Kamran and his article (apparently he's got a book on the subject as well), because it so thoroughly presents what is going on. At the same time we want to reaffirm that in our humble view Western elites do NOT seek world war with China and Russia, nor will they likely stumble into one. 

The top men in the world all seek the same thing at this point: world government and population culling as a byproduct. Once this is understood, what is likely REALLY going on in the world snaps more or less into focus. Add in the elites helplessness as the Internet Reformation rages about them and you can come to some most interesting conclusions.

Conclusion: Far from facing a global nuclear war and nuclear winter, it is perfectly possible the 21st century will present humankind with a modern Renaissance and a reduction of the modern conspiracy. The elites may well find it necessary to take a step back as their fear-based promotions crumble and their use of violence ceases to be entirely effective. Perhaps this is an optimistic perspective, but is it beyond the realm of possibility?  

 

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

In spite of my admiration for the staff of The Daily Bell, I believe the Bankers won’t hesitate to start a world war using Israel as the bad guy’s, if the Internet get’s them worried, and I say this giving respect for both opinion’s expressed in this article. In short, the Bankers have the power to do anything they deem expedient, and the internet is close to being made useless before the masses can be educated and motivated. The masses would prefer sacrificing their children before their comfort.

If Yemen Falls, so Does the Dollar Reserve?

http://www.thedailybell.com/2443/If-Yemen-Falls-so-Does-the-Dollar-Reserve.html

Saturday, June 04, 2011 – by Anthony Wile

How is it that the world's fortunes hang on the life or death of a murderous thug that the US has been supporting for 30 years? And why, in fact, if Yemen's President Ali Abdullah Saleh is so important, isn't it common knowledge? Saleh was wounded yesterday when opposition forces blew up his palace. But as I'll discuss, below, there's more to the story. (Isn't there always?)

In my opinion, this story is so big it should be on the front pages of the New York Times and The Wall Street Journal: "US dollar hegemony hangs in the balance." Or how's this: "Future of the world's monetary system may be decided in Yemen's Sana’a."

How can one silly, little and desperately poor country full of people in ankle-length white robes be in the position to shake the foundations of the current monetary system of theAnglo-American empire?

First, context. It hasn't been a good year for the West's power elite. Yemen is only one country in tumult. Other countries verging on civil war are Bahrain and Syria. (Libya is already convulsed.) But in fact there are hundreds of places in the Middle East, Africa and Europe now where people are demonstrating and marching – or fighting with various levels of efficiency and organization.

In Afghanistan, the Obama administration is said to be desperately searching for Mullah Omar, the one-eyed leader of the Taliban, now and again reported dead or missing. US officials, in turn, wish to find Omar so that they can work out a deal where the US declares victory and Omar retains the territory. Some victory.

Libya is currently in a stalemate; China is Pakistan's new best friend; Pakistan's generals are again denying what Ms.Hillary Clinton – US Secretary of State – said only a week ago, that the Pakistan army was about to launch a significant attack against the Pashtun/Taliban. It's not true, the generals say.

Meanwhile, Egypt's youths sleep on the streets; Tunisian youth are no happier; Iran is gaining considerable regional influence because of the "color revolutions" that the CIA apparently triggered. Iraq is destabilizing again, and even the Palestinians are resurgent.

The Arab Awakening is truly a regional if not global phenomenon. Of course, we have our own name for it: The Internet Reformation. It's really the same thing. Just as the Gutenberg press spawned the Renaissance and Reformation, so the Internet has now spawned a truly significant social convulsion. The world will never be the same.  

America's CIA-sponsored AYM youth movements were behind the initial color revolutions. But notice how themainstream press has stopped celebrating them. Perhaps they haven't worked out as planned. Either Western elites are encouraging a series of Arab Islamic Republics (so as to buttress what seems to be an essentially phony "war on terror") or they are trying to create controllable regulatory democracies that will likely be run by dependable militaries with a constitutional façade. Neither of these options looks to be feasible in the near term.

Alternatively, the West seeks generalized chaos for some reason – or, more intriguingly, it has simply lost control of the situation. As we've stated before, Yemen is important because it may well indicate how much control the West actually has over the Arab Awakening. So far, what's been most apparent is dithering. The West hasn't shown a firm hand. There are reasons why.

Yemen may be spinning out of Western control. After Saleh was wounded, he was quoted as saying, "I salute our armed forces and the security forces for standing up firmly to confront this challenge by an outlaw gang that has nothing to do with the so-called youth revolution." It's interesting that the words Saleh used were "outlaw gang" as the tribal opposition to his rule denied making the attack. Apparently, it was what one might call "an inside job."

That means that individuals nominally allied with Saleh tried to knock him off. And why not? He is a thoroughly despicable man. He has ruled Yemen for about 30 years through a mixture of truculence and torture; like Gaddaffi, his favorite method of staying in power is one of "divide and conquer" in which he set various tribes against each other.

Yup … Yemen is another "tribal backwater" like Afghanistan – a place where the Anglo-American elite (exaggeratedly) has no interest. It is like a kid kicking a stone past the house of a pretty girl. He just happened along the way … and thus the US just "happened' into Afghanistan and Iraq. In fact, the US is intensely interested – mesmerized in a kind of Ted Bundy (bad) way.

How seriously does the Anglo-American empire take Afghanistan (as a speed-bump on the way to world government)? Try, probably, say … US$2 trillion in expenditures, thousands killed and tens of thousands wounded. True the total all-in cost hasn't been as much as Vietnam (50,000 dead and 500,000 wounded) but there's considerable evidence that the US has been undercounting the dead and wounded through a variety of manipulations.

Yemen has never presented the kind of problems as Afghanistan. In part that's because Yemen is even more difficult to subdue militarily than the stiff-necked Pashtun Taliban. The West has wanted as little to do with Yemen as possible (outside of controlling the coastline). Here's a description of Yemen by Paul Herman of the New Zealand Post in a recent article entitled "Cry, cry and cry again for my beloved Yemen."

So now my beloved Yemen is on the verge of going up in flames, on the verge of a cataclysmic civil war. I say "my beloved" because I had such an extraordinary time there on an Intrepid Journey a few years back Not a lot of people actually know where Yemen is. I don't think I really did until I checked a map before we went there. It is essentially the bottom left portion of the Arabian Peninsula. And what I certainly didn't realise about the entire Arabian Peninsula is that a massive mountain range runs north to south down its western side, sloping down eventually to the Red Sea.

In fact, the Saudis move their capital up to the mountains, to Taif, during the ferocious Arabian summers. The Yemeni capital Sana'a sits in this same mountain range. The thing about Yemen is the architecture. There is nothing like it in the world. They seem to have engineering in their genes. They built skyscrapers when no one was doing it.

Osama Bin Laden's father, who got rich building roads in Saudi Arabia, was Yemeni. He got so rich he rebuilt the mosque at Mecca with his own money. Old Man bin Laden came from one of the most spectacular parts of the world I have ever seen, the Wadi Hadromaut. It is probably as vast and as breathtaking as the Grand Canyon. And all through this great and ancient valley are villages perched on high, impossible sites, above steep cliffs, and you look at them and marvel because they have been there hundreds and hundreds of years.

How in God's name did they do that, you find yourself asking time and again, round every corner. It's the same through the entire country, especially in that great mountain range, villages with slim, square buildings six or seven storeys on the most unreachable ridges and peaks. And, of course, that was the point. Defensively, they are brilliantly sited. The truth is, neither the Turks – of whom there are still some 10,000 in Yemen – nor the British ever really conquered anywhere but the Yemeni coast. You couldn't get near those mountain villages. The Yemenis simply rolled great rocks down on you.

As Afghanistan is the key to Middle Asia, so Yemen is the key to "Arabia." The tribes of Oman and the Arab Emirates flowed out of Yemen. The Saud family came from Yemen apparently. And today Yemen is no less important than before in terms of the Great Game. It is perched on the edge of one of the most important waterways in the world and fronts the soft underbelly of Saudi Arabia – the part where many of the most profitable oil wells are located.

Yemen is formidable, and strangely important. But because of the mountains, because of the tribes, because of the weaponry (three rifles for every Yemeni), because boys are expected to be proficient with weapons from an early age, Yemen has not been high on the list of the Anglosphere's "civilizing" influences.

Ironically, the Yemenis are very similar culturally to the Somalis – from the same Somalia that Western newscasters like to call a failed state. (A failed state is any country that stands in the way of the West's dash toward One World Government.)

What Western mainstream media isn't bothering to report, however, is that the Anglo-American power elite could already have done away with Saleh if it wanted to. He's their man and has been for all of his violent existence. It is reprehensible that that Western elites would rather let Yemen drift into civil war than cease to support Saleh. There have been no moves made in the UN to put pressure on Saleh, no sanctions – only apparently regular ammo and tear gas refills, which he has used to slaughter hundreds of Yemenis.

The Western elites have not moved to do away with Saleh because they cannot apparently find a thug to put in his place that will garner a modicum of tribal support. The result of all this is growing antipathy. Possibly, because Yemen is another funny "impoverished backwater," the US has handled the Yemen very badly. The whole country is inflamed. Saleh, now wounded, will likely never get his power back and the chances that the CIA will have the opportunity to create a new Saleh are growing slimmer by the minute.

The Saudis worked desperately to move Saleh out of power. It is easy to see why now; that was their leverage. But now the nightmare scenario has occurred: increasingly the Saudis are perceived as propping Saleh up (which they are doing actually by not removing him). Ultimately all this returns to the US and the Pentagon, which in turn does the bidding of the City of London. So, here is the answer to the question asked at the beginning of this article. The answer is …

SAUDI ARABIA!

The corrupt and vicious Saudi regime lies at the heart of Money Power. Without Saudi willingness to support the continued dollar-oil exchange (forcing the rest of the world to hold dollars) the dollar reserve currency system seriously degrades.

The current system was put in place in the 1940s, but it was elaborated on in 1971, when the US severed the last link between gold and the dollar and substituted oil. How did the Anglosphere elites manage this trick? Using Mao's observation: "power springs from the barrel of a gun."

The Saudis were willing accomplices, but in reality they didn't have a choice. The world's economy, when you come down to it, is a product of American military force. Use the dollar to buy oil or else … But if the US and Saudi Arabia cannot control the spiraling disaster in Yemen, the next stop on the revolutionary train is Bahrain. And after that … Saudi Arabia. And THIS time, events may not be easily salvageable. The Internet has educated the Arab world about its history.

If the Anglosphere elites had only used their tremendous industrial and monetary advantages to build a free-market instead of a phony one (disguised as a free one)! But the elites chose to propagate a central banking economy in order to chase after world government, and now they are in danger of an eroding dollar reserve, which could eventually result in the creation of an entirely new (and uncontrollable) currency. Anyway, if Saudi Arabia falls, the dominoes may simply keep tumbling. Who pays any attention to funny little countries like Yemen anyway?

 

 

The Federal Reserve Cartel: The Eight Families

Part one of a four-part series)

by Dean Henderson

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 center 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 Ce 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 cozy 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, favorite 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.

Bretton Woods was a boon to the Eight Families. The IMF and World Bank were central to this “new world order”. 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 endeavor. 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 endeavors 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, including Milton Friedman.

The family owns 30 Rockefeller Plaza, where the national Christmas tree is lighted every year, and Rockefeller Center. David Rockefeller was instrumental in the construction of the World Trade Center 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 Harbor, 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]

Agenda 21 the Death Knell of Liberty

June 1st, 2011 by

 

"From time to time, we have been tempted to believe that society has become too complex to be managed by self-rule, that government by an elite group is superior to government for, by, and of the people. But if no one among us is capable of governing himself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else? All of us together, in and out of government, must bear the burden."

                                                            —Ronald Reagan, First Inaugural Address (1981)

By Web Master

America is experiencing a silent revolution of ideology which could result in a transformation of America.   

One group, the Conservatives, believe in Individual Freedom as stated in the American Declaration of Independence, " We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness."  These unalienable rights or sovereign rights of man are granted by God and can never be taken away. Their allegiance is to America and they promote American exceptionalism and American nationalism. They believe in America First and promote FREEDOM, small Government, following the Rule of Law, protecting the American citizens as laid out in the United States Constitution. They believe that the best Government is that closest to the people and State Sovereignty is most important.  

The other group (the Liberals), believe in the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brother-hood. They believe that every individual has the,right to work, right to education, right to social security, right to own property, right to freedom of thought,, conscience, and religion.

 These rights are granted by man and can be taken away or changed at any time.

Their allegiance is to the World and they promote global citizenship and social (collective) justice. They believe in the New World Order and promote the environment over man. They believe that Government should be the end all, be all, to all people, and that and wealth should be distributed throughout the population. Therefore, individual rights, land and money belong to the Government and should be distributed to the collective.

The definition of Rights is quite different for each group. The Conservatives believe that no person has a Right if it infringes upon the Right of another person. The Liberals believe it is OK to forcefully take Rights from someone else and give it to another.

The clash of ideology has resulted in chaos in all aspects of American life. Have you asked yourself recently why America is in the horrific shape it is in today? With so many brilliant minds in educators, labor, economists reporting to the Congress and the President, in so many sectors, how could America wind up broke, ignorant and on the verge of becoming a third world country? It seems as though the rest of the world is advancing their economy while America is going backwards.

America today does not make sense.

 

  • America is one of the richest countries in natural resources, yet we are being regulated claiming these resources are harmful and can not be touched.                                                                                                                                   
  • America is spending billions for foreign energy when we have more oil and natural resources than the Middle East combined.
  • America is the shining star of individual excellence, yet our educational system is failing our children.                                                   Read More>>>
  • America is the leader of the free world, yet we are being disgraced by our "so called" President as he apologizes for our failings in the fight for humanity. 
  • America is the innovator and inventor of some of the most incredible advancements in world history yet our businesses are now leaving our shores to other countries with less strangling regulation and taxes.
  • America had the best medical system in the world and it was destroyed by a pen stroke and turned into an outrageously expensive government take over.
  • Although unconstitutional, the Federal Government is on a crash course to own and control massive quantities of land which they will make uninhabitable for humans.
  • America is rich in agricultural products and could feed the entire country, yet Americans are starving.
  • Private American companies are being taken over by the American Government because they are "too big to fail".  Is this the Free Market?
  • Executives who robbed from Americans were give huge bonuses while the taxpayer is in foreclosure.
  • Bills are passed in the middle of the night without citizen support.
  • American borders are left open so illegal’s can "come to America for free services" paid for by the American taxpayer forcing huge debt in cities and states.
  • The oil moratorium continues regardless of the fact that a Federal judge said to remove it.  
  • The environment is more important than people so fuel and food prices "will necessarily skyrocket"
  • American media does not report the news and anyone who disagrees is a "racist"
  • The American Government Agencies are being run by Czars with communist/socialist backgrounds.
  • American children are being taught that the rights of the collective are more important than the rights of the individual, that the Government and not God, grant our rights.

 

Nothing in America makes sense until you start digging into UN Agenda 21.  Then everything makes sense.  UN Agenda 21 is the thread, or UN blueprint for Global Governance that is currently practiced in every US Government Agency in America today.  UN Agenda 21 is a communist/socialist/progressive agenda put in place by a few Progressive Elites to stifle freedom, creativity, ingenuity and economy of the greatest country in the world so Americans will not question this new ruling class determined to create a "New World Order".   Agenda 21 is not based on fact actually it is based on failed communist principals and Keynesian Economics calling for increased Government and spending funded by higher taxes.    

Agenda 21 is not just Democratic or Republican.  It is supported by both.  Agenda 21 was never ratified by the US Senate, yet through continued Executive Orders,  our government agencies are following this agenda to turn America into a socialist/communist country.  Agenda 21 is now dictating our every way of life.  Americans are paying the UN to steal our country.  WHY?   There is only one answer: MONEY and POWER.

America has provided more humanity, more invention, more freedom in its 200 years of existence than any other country in recorded history. Unbelievably, America is on the verge of collapse.  American economists would have our citizens believe that our economy is made up of separate sectors and each is autonomous.  Strategies and reports are presented in separately.  Citizens are constantly divided into different categories while being pitted against each other. Surveys are designed to show separate and targeted results. Laws are made without thinking:  What are the consequences on the people? What is affect on other sectors of the economy?   WHY?  By keeping the people fragmented and divided they will not realize what they lose and no one will tie America's demise to Agenda 21. 

America is now at an ideological crossroad. Choices must be made that will dictate our future and that of our children.  Without complete total information, the truth is concealed. The question is why? Most Americans do not have the time or inclination for anything more than a sound bite, but without relevant  knowledge and information, bit by bit we let our freedom and liberty dissolve and slip away. We the people, elect officials who we assume will act in our best interest.  Once the officials are in office we do not pay attention to what they are doing.  We have allowed ourselves to become too involved with sports, movies, video games and other mindless distractions.   The result…  America has been has been sold piece by piece and taken over by people who do not have our best interest.   Do we want to continue down this path?

 

Let us for a moment forget that we are Republican or Democrat. Why? Each party has both Liberals and Conservatives. According to polls America is made up of 10% hard core Liberals and 10% hard core conservatives.  Depending on the poll, the rest of the country is a center right leaning majority.

Who are these Groups? 

Conservatives (aka Rightists, Libertarians, Tea Party, 912 Groups, Constitutionalists) believe that the individual has rights given to them by God.  Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness together with Morality (the Ten Commandments) make up a list of laws by which Americans agree to live.  Conservatives believe that the power of a successful life rests with the individual.  Each individual has the same opportunity to make the choices that will dictate the success or failure of their life.  Each individual is responsible for their choices.  Conservatives believe if you make a mistake, look in the mirror and blame yourself. There is no such thing as perfection, the individual will make mistakes but the power of morality will intercede.   Conservatives follow the Constitution and believe in open debate welcoming comments from any side involved in the issue. 

You can live where ever you choose, buy whatever you choose.  You are free to make choices regarding your life, your family, your home and your neighborhood, state and country.  Every action has a consequence and you are in control of the action and the consequences that dictate your life.  If you don't like something, you have the power to fix it.  You are free to explore, invent, create and become the success you want to be.  Yes, you must follow laws but, you know the rules in advance so following them is not difficult.    

 
The Liberals (aka Communists, Progressives, Elite Socialists, Democrats, Leftists, Marxists, Global Elite, Globalists) believe that everything must be owned and controlled by the government.  The 10% hard core Liberals are often defined as the Progressive Elite.  For our purpose of defining the group, we will call them Progressive elite.  Progressive Elite truly believe Rights are granted by the government who knows best and can take away those rights at any time. Progressive Elite truly believe that they are capable of creating utopia on Earth, because of their superior wisdom. If they can just regulate ENOUGH, this fantasy will be realized. The trouble is that they never reach ENOUGH, and at some point those that resist must be eliminated and they have no problem with mass genocide.  They believe people are stupid and need to be lead into making the right choices. In order to help you make those choices, you are spoon fed controlled information slanted to their correct results.   Since we all love the earth, by telling you that what you are doing will harm the earth, Progressive Elites will get your support. 

Progressive Elites believe the environment is more important than the people. The group is more important than the individual. They are constantly selling the perfect society… a utopia where everyone works and gives most of their money to the state that in turn will take care of every need. But, if someone doesn't want to work, that's OK because someone else will work and pay for them.  Imagine going to school and working really hard. You are in a class where others don't work at all. You would get an A and the others would get an F. In Utopia, without competition, a level playing field means you get a C. Mediocrity is normal.  There is no motivation to work, become successful or have personal pride. There is no pride in ownership, no pride in family, no major Accomplishments, just the mundane life dictated by those who know better. Whether you elected them or not doesn't matter because your vote doesn't matter. The elections are predetermined.  If you don't like your life, too bad. if you speak out… Chavez just executed 2 people who spoke out.  Egypt, Greece, Tunisia must protest through riots to get their voices heard.  Progressive Elite believe in ONE WORLD, ONE GOVERNMENT with rules and regulations put in place by a few Progressive Elite who will determine your life and behavior. Progressive Elites do not tolerate criticism and often make up answers with little regard for the truth.    

The Ultimate Progressive Elite goal: You will live in a sustainable community which is a community around which government draws an Urban Boundary Zone (UBZ- fence), and forbids city services to be delivered outside the UBZ, prohibits new construction outside the UBZ, and requires residents within the UBZ to live in housing that meets the size and cultural integration standards set forth in the code or comprehensive plan. Sustainable communities are high-density communities where automobiles are discouraged, and bikeways and walkways are the alternative to public transportation.  Everyone's living quarters are the same and dictated by the government based on the allowable size of your family (Communist China allows 1 child per family).Say goodbye to big family rural living.  

The American Majority leans center right and have more in common than they realize.  "WE THE PEOPLE" is how we are referred to in our Constitution.  When we talk together we find that we all have similar goals….

 

  • Follow the Constitution – America first – Speak English
  • Protect Liberties, Freedom, Sovereignty, Borders
  • Family 
  • Education
  • American Pride and Exceptionalism
  • Competition
  • Free Market with enforcement of unobtrusive Rules and Regulations
  • Reasonably Protect the Environment by first protecting Humanity
  • Fiscal Responsibility

Our power is our massive size and voting block which our Founding Fathers put in place as a form of checks and balances to keep our Government in line...Where did that go wrong?  

The answer to any tough question is always simple if you research.  "Divided We Fail" is the tool of the 10% Progressive Elite to keep America divided.  Through the use of the media, the UN, and other nonprofit organizations, economy, environment and political correctness the goal is easily accomplished.  Items like:  Whites polls, Blacks polls, Hispanic polls, Republican polls, Democratic polls, Union vs non- union, Legal vs Illegals, Rich vs Poor, Urban vs rural, One Religion vs another Religion,  Haves vs Have Nots, Parents vs Children.  Of course the favorite tactic, used when all else fails, is to call the opposition  "Racists".  You get the picture.  All the Progressive Elite has to do is manipulate the media and report on some inane topic which has nothing to do with the current issues at hand, the majority polarizes and shifts its attention off the key point.  Congress passes another liberty destroying Bill in the middle of the night.  

Divided people do not talk, do not have a public forum and are desensitized to the needs, wants and ideas of others.  Your thought process is altered; communication is slanted. There is no logic, reason or common sense. You are programmed to act on emotionand are easily lead by the Progressive Elite who know what is best for you.  The rest is easy.  The Progressive Elite create the situation (crisis), rile you up with half truths or no truth at all, get you to act against your friend, neighbor, countrymen and then have the solution which usually comes in the form of you giving up some right in the name of the common good. But whose common good? Certainly not yours.  

 

As previously stated, America is at a crossroad and we are being asked to make a choice.  Without the full information how is making a choice possible?  Remember when the BP well exploded, the inaction of the administration did not make sense.  Why was there no action for almost 100 days?  Why was a toxic dispersant, Corexit, harmful to the people, environment, seafood, wildlife, oil industry, jobs, the economy allowed to continue to be dumped in the Gulf?  Why after a Federal judge said there was no basis for a moratorium did the administration ignore the judge?   Why did the administration doctor reports from their own committee, use phony scientific analysis to force America to depend on foreign oil when America has 400 years of oil resources, more oil resources than all of the Middle East combined? What is wrong with this picture?  Why does the administration want America to fail? Lose jobs? Destroy the oil industry?  Deem oil off limits? Nothing makes sense… 

There had to be another reason. Research was needed to find answers.  Funny at this same time thousands of people all over the country were asking questions of similar nature as their communities were being economically affecting for different reasons. Then amazing discoveries were made.  Citizens began to talk, ask questions and UNITE.  
  
We discovered that too many answers came back with the same conclusion.  If everything in life is connected, was there a much bigger agenda being followed?  Yes there was.  It was called UN AGENDA 21.     The UN Global Elite solution for the world.  Why could something that sounds so good on paper be a recipe for evil and call for the downfall of America?
UN Agenda 21 calls for:

Global Governance

  • Redistribution of Wealth
  • Depopulation
  • Sustainable developments
  • Environment over Humanity
  • Collective Rights over Individual Rights granted by the Elite
  • Education of unrelated concepts, not facts
  • Disasters of capitalism and the free market

 

Again the answer is simple: MONEY and POWER
Agenda 21 was put together at the 1992 UN conference in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.  Although Pres. George W. Bush (New World Order) signed the agreement, it was never ratified by the Senate.  To bypass the Senate, Pres. Clinton then signed an Executive Order #12852 and put the ball in motion.  Today we are following the unfair trade agreements signed at that time. Look up NAFTA and view the You Tube video:  Debate Bush, Clinton and Perot. Who was right?

After studying the results of the Executive Order #12852, we discovered America is paying a fortune to bureaucrats not elected, to determine our laws and rights.  These bureaucrats , in the UN, in Government and Non-Government Agencies have the sole purpose of following UN Agenda 21 while turning America into third rate country left in world-wide financial ruin.  Surprise, the people running our government were benefiting financially with huge windfalls.    

We believe that few Americans have knowledge of the depth Agenda 21.  We believe that most agencies are never told the entire Agenda instead they are given bits and pieces.  The affect on America as a whole is never known. Now it is out.  Once you understand how Agenda 21 will alter your existence as you know it, you know you have the power to stop it dead in its tracks.   

This web site is a compilation of years of research from many people who have often put themselves in harm's way to expose the tentacles of Agenda 21.It is the purpose of the website to tie those pieces of Agenda 21 together and show you how it affects every aspect of your past, present and future.Use the website as a tool to do your own research and learn. 

Read this site many times and verify everything you see. Ask questions, research answers and share those answers with your friends, family, legislators and community. For those who ask, "What can I do?", look at our action plan.  The main goal of this site is EDUCATION. The rest is up to you… What America do you and your family want to live in? 
Do you want an America with the Freedom of Choice; or an America where you are told your choice?

Liberal = Socialists=Communitarian=Fabian/ Just fancy words that = LOSS OF FREEDOM 

Agenda 21 the Death Knell of Liberty 

Knowledge is Power!

GEORGE SOROS CONTROLS GUNS AND AMMO PRODUCTION

June 1st, 2011 by

 

Anytime there is talk of gun control George Soros will make millions

as people rush

out to buy more guns and ammo. 
 
 
The George Soros controlled private equity company Cerberus Capital Management could cut off all gun and ammunition sales in the US. Apparently, the American people are totally unaware that Cerberus has for the past decade acquired nearly every gun and ammunition maker in the United States and consolidated them into a holding company called The Freedom Group.

Obama under fire for eyeing gun control 'under the radar'

By Daily Mail Reporter

Last updated at 9:19 PM on 29th May 2011
 

President Obama's administration is exploring tighter regulation on gun policy through executive action

The Obama administration is exploring tighter regulation on gun policy that can be secured through an executive order, bypassing congressional approval, officials have confirmed.

The potential crackdown has prompted concern among gun rights groups in the ongoing debate surrounding gun control and Second Amendment rights.

Administration officials said talk of executive orders or agency action are being considered, amidst its crossfire over regulations with a Republican-dominated House.

The Department of Justice held a meeting on Tuesday – the first in what is expected to be a series – to explore how the administration might be able to rule by decree.

Before the meeting, officials said topics of discussion would range from encouraging more thorough background checks and more efficient data-sharing.

An administration official told Fox News: 'The purpose of these discussions is to be a productive exchange of good ideas from folks across the spectrum. We think that’s a good place to start.'

The news follows a report last month by the Washington Post in which President Obama is quoted saying his administration was working on gun control 'under the radar'.

The comment was reportedly made during a private meeting with his staff on March 30.

The remark came in the wake of the January killing spree in Arizona that left Arizona Representative Gabrielle Giffords critically injured after she was shot at point-blank range by 22-year-old Jarod Loughner.
 

Six people died and another thirteen people were injured in the attack, putting gun control policy back on the forefront for debate.

Lawmakers have since offered several proposals for tighter restrictions.

However, the prospect of the White House fulfilling an agenda behind closed doors has sparked an outcry among opponents for tighter gun control.
 Gun Owners of America Director Larry Pratt told Fox News: 'They're doing a pretty good job.

'As Obama has said, "under the radar"… There's a lot going on under that radar. They've shown us how much they are prepared to do through regulation.'

Pratt referred to a proposal from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) in which dealers in Arizona, California, New Mexico and Texas would be required to report multiple sales to the same person of certain kinds of rifles.

A study released by the ATF in January that examined restricting certain shotguns from being imported to the U.S. has been heavily denounced by the National Rifle Association.

The write-up is based on a 1968 law that restricts imports of firearms to those used for 'sporting purposes'.

Another proposal by longtime Senate gun control advocate Frank Lautenberg bans high-capacity ammunition clips, like the one that left Giffords wounded.

It has not passed on to Congress.

A bill introduced earlier this month by New York Representative McCarthy would impose stricter penalties on states that fail to enter the names of people prohibited from buying guns into a national database. It would also require background checks for all gun sales, including at gun shows.

McCarthy spokesman Shams Tarek said President Obama has yet to endorse her proposal.

'That's just something we haven't heard the president say anything about,' Tarek said, adding the Obama administration is 'very, very much in listening mode'.

In March, the President addressed his concerns over gun violence to the Arizona Daily Star, supporting more thorough background checks.

While stressing his support of an individual's right to bear arms, as protected in the Second Amendment, he defended his stance, stating 'there's more we can to to prevent gun violence'.

Gun-rights activists are criticising the efforts, citing a study released by the FBI in September that showed gun sales were up in 2009, while violent crimes of all types declined by 5.3 per cent.

Figures from the National Instant Background Check System (NICS) showed 14million guns were sold in 2009, the biggest year since the system began recording data in 1998.

NRA spokesman Andrew Arulanandam said enforcement of current gun control laws should be of primary concern.

Arulanandam told Fox News: 'The American public does not support gun control… What the American public wants is for criminals to be punished for their mistakes.'

Cerberus' Freedom Group guns for $200 million IPO

Wed, Oct 21 2009

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Private equity firm Cerberus Capital Management CBS.UL is planning to take gun maker Freedom Group Inc public in a $200 million initial public offering, according to a regulatory filing.

Freedom Group, which designs, manufactures and markets firearms under brands that include Remington, Marlin, Bushmaster, Parker and Nesika, said in the filing it has the largest market share in all of its major product groups in the United States.

Cerberus, which owns 94.3 percent of Freedom Group's shares according to the filing, could use a successful IPO after sustaining massive losses from its investments in carmaker Chrysler and in GMAC.

Earlier this month, Cerberus successfully took public one of its portfolio companies, plasma-based protein therapy maker Talecris Biotherapeutics Holdings Corp (TLCR.O: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz). Talecris raised $950 billion and rose 11.3 percent in its debut. Shares were up 2.6 percent over the IPO price on Wednesday.

But the filing comes at a time when several other private equity backed IPOs have stumbled in their debuts. Last week, RailAmerica (RA.N: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz), owned by funds managed by Fortress Investment Group LLC (FIG.N: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz), fell 8 percent in its debut after pricing below expectations.

Freedom Group sold about 1.1 million long guns and 2 billion rounds of ammunition in the year ended June 30, 2009, according to its prospectus, filed on Wednesday with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

In 2006, Cerberus bought Bushmaster Firearms, and in 2007 bought Remington Arms, the largest U.S. maker of rifles. Subsequently, it bought gunmakers DPMS Firearms and Marlin Firearms to form Freedom Group.

Freedom Group did not specify what it would use the IPO proceeds for beyond saying they were for working capital and general capital

The company reported net sales of $427.3 million for the six months ended June 30, up 34.9 percent over the year earlier period, and net income of $32.8 million.

US ENERGY POLICY HELD HOSTAGE BY OPEC AND POLITICIANS

June 1st, 2011 by

While the Environmental Protection Agency recently declared that oil companies could once again obtain leases to explore and drill for oil domestically, the Department of Energy continues to stonewall any progress in creating an energy independent United States.

According to political strategist Mike Baker, the Obama Administration is making it more, not less difficult to achieve oil and gasoline independence.

For example, Baker points to how part of the $789 billion economic stimulus package in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 provided the Energy Department with an additional $38.3 billion for fiscal years 2009 and 2010, adding about 75 percent to Energy's annual budgets. Most of the stimulus spending was in the form of grants and contracts.

"When President Jimmy Carter and the U.S. Congress created the U.S. Department of Energy in 1977, little did Americans know at the time that pencil-pushing bureaucrats would slowly and silently create a colossus centralized government power," said Baker.

To understand the rationale for suddenly creating a bureaucracy, one must be familiar with the Carter Administration. Arguably the worst president in U.S. history, Carter faced double-digit inflation, domestic and foreign policy failures, and a fuel shortage so severe that Americans would actually shoot or beat someone who dared to jump the gas lines that stretched for numerous city blocks.

In an attempt to bring order — at least, at gas stations — driver's were allowed gasoline on alternate days according to odd or even numbers on their licence plates. If you licence ended in an even number you could gas up on Monday. Odd number? Tuesday was your day.

In addition to the shortage, gasoline prices skyrocketed as well.

Formed as a result of this gasoline crisis by President Carter's signing of legislation named The Department of Energy Organization Act of 1977, the original responsibility of the fledgling agency was energy policy.

Eventually, the Secretary of Energy included the nation's nuclear weapons program, nuclear reactor production for the United States Navy, energy conservation, energy-related research, radioactive waste disposal, and domestic energy production to the department's list of government responsibility.

DOE is today involved in more basic and applied scientific research than any other US federal agency. It is President Barack Obama who unveiled a $26.4 billion budget request for DOE for fiscal year 2011, including $2.3 billion for the DOE Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy.

Obama's budget aims to substantially expand the use of renewable energy sources while improving energy transmission infrastructure. It also makes significant investments in hybrids and plug-in hybrids, in smart grid technologies, and in scientific research and innovation.

As with any government entity, the DOE is constantly growing in size and power. For example, a new regulation will impact every single household in the nation in the coming months.

Under a law to be enforced by the DOE, all light bulbs must use 25% to 30% less energy than today's products by 2012 to 2014. The phase-in will start with 100-watt bulbs in 2012 and end with 40-watt bulbs in 2014. By 2020, bulbs must be 70% more efficient.

Incandescent bulbs were invented over 120 years ago, and environmentalists claim they could be replaced by many superior technologies if only the right regulations and financial incentives were put in place.

The alternative to the incandescent bulb is the Compact Fluorescent Lamp. However, observers believe CFLs present their own environmental problems.

"These bulbs contain mercury. That's the only way they can work. The mercury vapor reacts to electricity to produce the light," said Paul Hemingway writing on presidential candidate Ron Paul's web site.

"This is another case of the cart before the horse. With rare exception, there is no safe way to dispose of these bulbs. They are ending up in landfills and lots of them are broken. The mercury will be seeping into the ground and our water supplies," he wrote.

"A few states were fighting against the ban on incandescent light bulbs. Now they are backing away from it. This is just another major government intrusion into our lives," said conservative political strategist Michael Baker.

To date, over 30 countries (including the members of the European Union, the US, China and Australia) have had a look at the available lighting technologies and decided that the case for the banning of domestic incandescent light bulbs stacks up.

Radical environmentalists in Britain claim the UK's ban of incandescents will reduce annual carbon dioxide emissions by 2-3 million tons. Similarly the EU's annual emissions will be reduced by 23 million tons. Meanwhile, the Chinese government's decision to stop manufacturing 70% of the world's incandescent light bulbs will reduce the world's annual carbon emissions by even more, according to some environmentalists.

But it's the United States that is setting the standards for the world when it comes to environmental issues and Republicans in the White House and in the legislature appear ready to go along with the wishes of militant environmentalists.

So a government bureaucracy created in 1977 to deal with gasoline shortages and high prices at the pumps is becoming the "energy police" for our nation. And how is the DOE doing with the problem it was first created to solve? Well, a little over 33 years ago, 30% of our oil consumption was foreign imports. Today 70% of our oil consumption is foreign imports. Domestic oil production policy is dictated by environmental fanatics and political lightweights and enforcement by an agency that's out of control.

GASOLINE AND OIL

According to Rep. Cory Gardner (R-CO), members of the House Subcommittee on Energy and Commerce pressed EPA bureaucrats about the reasons behind the lengthy permitting process. While opponents to extracting oil from Alaskan waters attempted to justify the delays with public health concerns, EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson has conceded that these drilling operations “will not cause air pollution that will endanger [public] health.”

The importance of Alaskan crude production to the West Coast and our overall energy independence, will reduce dependence on imports that have raised relative crude oil prices on the West Coast. Experts believe that without continued production in Alaska, the West Coast will grow more dependent on imports from OPEC.

Experts claim that permit delays at the EPA are preventing over 27 billion barrels of oil in Alaska’s offshore fields from reaching American consumers.

In addition, last Thursday the U.S. House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Energy and Power, chaired by Rep. Ed Whitfield (R-KY), hosted the “American Energy Initiative” hearing. House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) unveiled the initiative at a press conference alongside other top House Republicans including Chairman of the Energy and Commerce Committee Fred Upton (R-MI).

Thursday’s hearing focused on oil supplies, gasoline prices, and oil extraction in the Gulf of Mexico. Global events in Libya and the Middle East provided Americans with sharp reminder of the potential for an oil-supply disruption, underscoring our own nation’s energy vulnerabilities. As gasoline prices continue to rise, approaching $5.00 per gallon, the nation can no longer afford policies that lock away our domestic oil-and-gas resources and thwart job growth.

We must pursue a new American Energy Initiative to fortify our energy security and provide for high-paying American jobs, Boehner told his colleagues.

SUPREME COURT UPHELD ARIZONA IMMIGRATION LAWS

May 30th, 2011 by

In what can only be labeled a victory for the American people and the rule of law along with states’ rights, the Supreme Court this week upheld Arizona’s E-Verify law that mandates that employers hire legal American citizens and not illegal aliens.

Roy Beck, director of NumbersUSA.org, gave this definitive interview on this victory:

“The most important result of today's Supreme Court rulingprobably is not what will happen in the states but in Congress,” said Beck. “With more than a dozen states with different E-Verify laws and different rules for businesses — and with the Supreme Court opening the way for all other states to adopt their own rules — the business lobbies ought to be ready to work with Congress to pass a uniform national law.

“Many businesses that operate in multiple states are already complaining to their lobbyists that they don't like operating under all the different rules and would prefer a national law. Unless Congress passes a mandatory E-Verify law this year, at least a dozen more states are likely next winter to pass their own E-Verify laws.

“One of the complaints that business lobbyists are hearing from their members in states WITH E-Verify laws is that they don't like competing with businesses in other states that are allowed to use cheaper illegal labor while forcing taxpayers to subsidize them. So many businesses in E-Verify states are joining us in the pressure for a national law.”

BUSINESS LOBBIES HAVE BLOCKED TOTAL E-VERIFY IN CONGRESS FOR 15 YEARS — BUT WE HAVE BEEN WINNING STEP VICTORIES

‘Lobbyists for business groups and illegal-alien advocacy groups have blocked Congress from passing a national mandatory law since 1996,” said Beck. “NumbersUSA and its allies have fought every year to win incremental victories. First, to create the workplace verification system as a pilot program for just a few states. Later, to expand the voluntary system nationwide. Most recently to persuade Pres. Obama to mandate its use for all federal contractors.

“If the Supreme Court had knocked us down today, the business lobbies would have looked out over a whole nation without any states requring employers to electronically verify that they weren't hiring illegal foreign workers. And they would have felt little pressure to do anything other than they've always done, which is to throw all their weight in Congress toward protecting employers that prefer to hire illegal aliens over unemployed Americans. But not now.”

THIS WAS THE MOST IMPORTANT IMMIGRATION COURT CASE — AND WE WON IT

The case is Chamber of Commerce v. Whiting, 09-115.

“Of all the open-border groups' court challenges against immigration enforcement across the country, this suit before the U.S. Supreme Court (that was heard last December) was/is by far the most important.”

AND WE WON IT 5-3!

“Nothing will do more to retard future illegal immigration and accelerate the departure of the current illegal population than taking away the job magnet,” said Beck. “Arizona and more than a dozen other states have already passed various versions of E-Verify law. All of those could have been wiped out when the Supreme Court announced its decision this morning.

“But instead, our strategy of mandating E-Verify in as many states as possible to pressure Congress to do it nationwide has been approved by the highest court of the land.”

NumbersUSA's AMICUS BRIEF WAS PART OF THIS COURT CASE

“You may remember that as soon as the Supreme Court began business last fall NumbersUSA filed an Amicus brief in support of the State of Arizona making sure that the Justices and their clerks were aware of a number of important legal and factual points that we weren't certain were in the main briefs.

“The key issue in the court case was whether Arizona could take away the business license of an employer who refuses to use E-Verify. The NumbersUSA Amicus went into great detail in showing that such a state law is precisely what Congress has set up as a state enforcement option over the last 25 years. The majority opinion was written by Chief Justice John Roberts who said that Arizona's E-Verify law "falls well within the confines of the authority Congress chose to leave to the states."

“Justices Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor dissented. (The newest Justice, Elena Kagan, was not involved in this case because she had been part of Pres. Obama's support of the Chamber of Commerce before she was elected to the Court.)

“Please keep opening our email Alerts and joining with your fellow citizens in considering all the actions we will be offering you the next weeks to get a vote on E-Verify on the House floor this summer and in the Senate by fall.”

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I saw this coming long ago.

One way or another, our sick scumbag government will control who works, and who does not, where you work, and everything else about you. Thanks to the assholes in the International Chamber of Commerce and all those who supported this bill, Americans will now have to surrender documentation to their employer just to have a job.

CONGRATULATIONS FROSTY, AND NUMBERS U.S.A., YOU HAVE HELPED THE GOVERNMENT PASS A NATIONAL I.D. WITH REAL TEETH!

MOST AMERICANS WOULD SELL THEIR MOTHER'S FOR A JOB!

 

International Monetary Fund Memes Roll On

Christine Lagarde

Monday, May 30, 2011 – by Staff Report

Why Christine Lagarde should never be head of the IMF … Christine Lagarde is in poll position. Having put her name forward last week, the silver-haired French finance minister may well become the new managing director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Lagarde has, with a depressing inevitability, secured the backing of most European countries. The UK was among the first to endorse her. There are rumours the mighty US could soon throw its weight behind Lagarde – making her bid a fait accompli. Europe seems determined to retain its prerogative of appointing the boss of the world's most important financial watchdog. Throughout the IMF's 65-year history, all 11 bosses have been from Western Europe. In return for allowing this stitch-up, America has traditionally provided the IMF deputy, while securing the top spot at the World Bank. – UK Telegraph

Dominant Social Theme: At this most critical time, this Western powers are about to make a critical mistake regarding this critical facility!

Free-Market Analysis: There seems to be emerging consensus in the constitutionally suspicious alternative Internet press that Dominique Strauss-Kahn was "stung" for any one of a variety of reasons. It was not rape, therefore, that brought him down but his effectiveness in dealing with the EU's economic crisis.

Alternatively, we have read, his arrest provided a distraction from the real and serious failures surrounding the great powers ability to deal with the unfolding crisis.

Finally, there is the idea that DSK wanted to continue to rejigger the voting mechanisms of the IMF. The US currently holds 17 percent of the votes in the IMF and IMF bylaws demand a majority of 85 percent for any substantial moves or changes in policy. Thus, the IMF is the US's creation and is beholden to it.

Anyway, we've stayed away from speculating. We don't seen any specific promotional value in what happened to DSK, other than to reinforce the meme that American justice is absolutely pure and non-discriminatory. But that's a pretty small, sub dominant meme, not one that would seem especially worth reinforcing at this point in time.

While we are not tempted to join the fray regarding DSK conspiracy theories, we have presented on several occasions the one powerful dominant social theme that has predictably emerged from the affair, which is that the IMF is an incredibly important institution and that its leaders are really, really, really important people.

In fact, if there were no IMF and no leadership it is likely – so we are informed – that the world's economies would probably collapse sooner rather than later. You can see our previous articles on the topic here:

We recently analyzed the memes in an article by Joseph Stiglitz on this topic, entitled, "The IMF cannot afford to make a mistake with Strauss-Kahn's successor." Now the UK Telegraph has issued yet another jeremiad on the importance of the IMF from columnist Liam Halligan. This focuses on the meme of IMF-as-most-important-institution-ever.

The institution he writes, "needs to reflect the extent to which the world has changed since it was launched from the ashes of the Second World War." Why? Because the markets could soon face another "Lehman moment." Lehman Brothers is widely held to have destabilized global markets in 2008.

From this (fallacious in our view) perspective, Halligan goes on to argue that it would be a "historic" mistake to appoint a European to head the IMF, especially given that non-Western countries compose most of the world's population now, some 80 percent. He cites other statistics too: The world's markets produce half the GDP and out-trade the West. They hold most of the world's currency reserves and are not mired in debt.

The IMF, he concludes, needs a leader from the developing world, a world that has arranged its finances better than the Western world. The West does not have a moral argument to make regarding IMF leadership. The mess it has made collectively of its finances has removed its credibility and "moral authority."

Halligan is also upset over the idea that the new leader of the IMF might be what he calls a "politician." Halligan claims the IMF "works properly" when it is taking an adversarial role and "banging political heads." The IMF must be seen as "tough – even unreasonably tough … an IMF that colludes with the political classes isn't enacting reform. It is simply helping the politicians bury their mistakes and kick any problems into the long grass where they will fester." Here's some more from the article:

The IMF should be respected – even feared. It is for the politicians to stand up and face the political music – explaining to their electorates why harsh actions are needed and why nations can't go on living beyond their means. Perhaps the most dangerous type of politician to run the Fund is a politician still hankering after high office. Strauss-Kahn, of course, was using the post and the influence it bestowed over trillions of dollars of bail-out cash, as a platform for a French presidential bid. As such, he turned the IMF into a soft-credit society for the eurozone's periphery nations, holding the single-currency together for the benefit of his Franco-German friends.

Strauss-Kahn's continued insistence on "just one more bail-out", rather than forcing Greece, Portugal and the rest to face up to genuine debt-restructuring, also made sure that the losses stayed with plebian taxpayers, rather than being shifted on to Europe's banks. He could have called in the favour, no doubt, when the need came to finance his campaign for the ultimate prize. It was not to be for Strauss-Kahn, of course. But what is to stop Lagarde following the same route? …

Running the IMF, now more than ever, requires economic expertise, massive intellectual authority and a willingness to be deeply unpopular – particularly, if you are a European, on your home turf. The emerging economies need to stop moaning, put their differences aside, and set their combined authority behind a world-class economic policy-maker to run the IMF. Such nations should be doing everything in their power to wrestle control of this pivotal institution from a Western political elite that is not only intellectually inadequate, but which seems determined to compound the world's economic problems …

Halligan is convinced that Lagarde has her own unfortunate political ambitions. As we can see from the above excerpt, he seeks a person of "massive intellectual authority" – and believes that person can only be found in the developing world.

We wonder exactly why somebody of massive intellectual authority would want to run the IMF in the first place. Anyone with massive intellectual authority would realize that the IMF is a dysfunctional organization that was constructed to increase Western dominance over the developing world, not to "help" countries recover from excessive debt.

The IMF is part of a fiscal and monetary tag team with the World Bank. The World Bank encourages dysfunctional, developing-world leaders to borrow more than their countries can withstand. Once the money has been wasted or spirited away, the country is effectively broke and the big western banks call for the IMF to step in.

The IMF's solutions are always the same. They tend to crush the middle class by reducing public subsidies and hiking taxes. Then they put tremendous pressure on remaining government officials to sell off a country's prime assets under the pretext that these are assets that need to be privatized. In truth these are mostly monopoly assets, like water and electrical facilities – and thus even privatization does not remove the monopoly status. One has just transferred a public monopoly into private hands. The profits are tremendous.

It is hard to avoid the conclusion (we won't) that the EU acted as the World Bank when it came to Europe's PIGS. These southern countries were given tremendous amounts of cash to supposedly make them financially healthy – or healthy enough to join the EU. But in addition to outright grants were numerous huge loans that were presented to all these countries during the faux-boom of the 2002-2007, many no doubt with EU cooperation. Now that the bill has come due, the EU is cynically calling on the IMF to ensure these countries make their payments.

Why isn't it working this time? Why have the protests only become stronger and deeper, threatening to tear apart the entire EU? We've presented the idea that the Internet itself has helped mobilize people in a way that Western eliteswere not expecting. Instead of crushing European middle classes and strengthening the EU, Eurocrats are discovering they may fundamentally weakened it and the euro besides.

The IMF, of course was supposed to play an integral role in this slaughter of the PIGS. The IMF is always involved in such pillaging. Of course, Anglosphere elites would much rather have the developing countries clamoring to "get in" than ignoring such institutions or seeking to remove themselves. This may yet happen however if the US continues to insist on its 17 percent control of the IMF.

Conclusion: Times are changing substantially, as are the attitudes of developing countries. The control that Western elites expected to exercise over these institutions is coming increasingly into question. Ironically, if the West does give up control and allow these institutions to play their putative role, they will become fairly useless to their creators. They will also be seen, increasingly, as the ineffective entities they actually are. For this reason, the US is not likely to cede any part of its 17 percent. Lagarde may get her dream post, but she may soon come to regret it
