I Sure Hope You’re Happy

I’m really, REALLY getting tired of every couple of years hearing this nonsense about our immigration system being broken and that we need to pass some sort of ‘comprehensive immigration reform.’ Every time the subject is brought up the constituency of our Congressman make it known, loud and clear, that they do not support, or want, any kind of immigration reform, especially one that contains any form of amnesty for those who have entered this country illegally.

What makes matters worse is that this time around we have a lame duck president who has said that if the Congress does not take action he will. What does this guy think he is, an emperor? Does he realize that the job of the president is to ensure that the laws passed by Congress, and signed by former presidents, are put into effect and carried out according to the specifications set forth in the legislation? It matters little that a sitting president agrees or disagrees with past laws passed by former Congresses and signed by former presidents, it is his job to see that they are enforced until these laws are amended or repealed.

I don’t want to spend too much time on the subject of immigration, as I have exhausted the subject before and nobody seemed to care then, so I am pretty sure nobody cares now either. But the fact is that there are laws on the books that deal with immigration, particularly the illegal kind. They are clear in that it is a crime to enter this country illegally, to aid or provide shelter for those who are in this country illegally, and to hire those who are not in this country legally.

The problem boils down to one simple fact, neither party wants to enforce existing law to its fullest extent. Immigration has now become a political hot button that the two parties use to rally up support for their respective sides.

The Democrats want to see immigration reform with amnesty because they know that those granted amnesty tend to become registered Democrats. It is simply a means for them to increase their ranks. The Republicans, while they cry out against any reform to existing law, don’t want to see existing laws enforced because the agricultural industry relies upon illegal labor to pick their crops and the agricultural industry has a powerful lobby that is a big supporter of the GOP. So if existing law were to be enforced it would hurt a big part of the Republican base.

So neither side wants to see the law enforced, so the subject itself of immigration is a tool used by both parties to stir up their base and cause distrust for the other side. In the meantime we the people suffer as the border isn’t sealed, and illegal immigration continues.

Depending upon who you listen to there are anywhere from 10 to 40 million people in this country illegally.

Whenever there is talk of immigration reform it always includes some means of amnesty. We are told that these people are already here, that they have already contributed to society for any number of years, and that they deserve to come out of the shadows. Is that so?

Let me ask you this then. Why do we imprison serial killers for their crimes instead of granting them amnesty? No, I’m not being silly, I’m asking a serious question. When many of these killers were apprehended their friends and neighbors were shocked to learn that they were killers, they fit into society so well. Aside from their need to kill, they were typical Americans who worked, paid their taxes and did everything that you and I do.

Well they were incarcerated because murder is a crime, and crimes come with an associated punishment. It does not matter that in every other aspect these men were average people. The same goes for an illegal immigrant. They broke the law by entering this country illegally and they MUST be made to pay the consequences. That does NOT include amnesty, especially when there are thousands of others who are still waiting in line to enter this country through legal means.

You say we cannot deport them all. I say, how do you know, we haven’t even tried. In the 50′s President Eisenhower enacted Operation Wetback which was a stepped up program of rounding up and streamlining the process of deportation. It was successful in deporting millions of illegal aliens. Unfortunately it did not include any effort in beefing up our border to ensure that others could not waltz right in.

In 1986 when President Reagan signed into law the Simpson Mazzoli Act we were promised that our immigration laws would be strengthened so that we would never again need to pass another amnesty. Yet here we are again…

But immigration is not the subject I wish to address in this article, the people and their understanding of our system of government is.

When Mr. Obama stated that if the Congress did not act on immigration that he would, if the people of this country truly understood their system of government they would have called for his impeachment…right then and there.

It doesn’t matter if you personally agree that our immigration system is broken and needs to be fixed, or you disagree. The point is that the person whose job it is to execute, (the reason it is called the Executive Branch of government), had just declared that he is also going to legislate by bypassing the branch of government when it does not act according to his will.

Thus my previous question, who does Mr. Obama think he is, an emperor or a king?

You may say, “But we are a democracy and if the people want immigration reform then they should get it, no matter if the Congress does it or the President does it.” Regardless of the fact that I despise both political parties, most of America still aligns themselves with one or the other. And in the recent elections the Republicans gained control of the Congress. This means that a majority of the people in this country want to see laws enacted along GOP party lines. And if the GOP does not want to act upon immigration, isn’t that the will of the people?

Let me tell you something else, we are NOT a democracy. I don’t care how many times that word is repeated, it isn’t true. A democracy, in its purest form, is a “government by the people; a form of government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised directly by them.”

Do we gather together in Washington D.C. and argue for which laws we want to see enacted? No, we elect representatives to do this for us. I’ll tell you what a true democracy is, it is two foxes and a chicken deciding what is going to be for dinner. In a democracy it doesn’t work out so well for the chicken. Democracy is pure majority rule, where the rights of the minority are not respected.

We are a republic. A republic is defined as, “a government in which supreme power resides in a body of citizens entitled to vote and is exercised by elected officers and representatives responsible to them and governing according to law.”

The highest law in this country is the Constitution. All other law passed must be in accordance with what it says. The Constitution clearly states that ALL legislative powers shall be vested in a Congress. It does not say that the Executive may bypass Congress when it does not act according to his wishes or desires. Nor does it state that the Congress may enact laws simply because a majority of the people want to see these laws enacted.

No, there are limits to the powers granted our government and if you cared enough to learn what those powers were you would see that probably 99.9% of the laws our Congress currently passes goes above and beyond what those limits set forth.

The problem with a republic is that its existence relies 100% upon the people that inhabit it. If the people become ignorant regarding the limits they imposed upon their governors then it is an easy step for these governors to overstep their authority and become tyrants. If the people do not care about the limits imposed upon government and only want their wishes and desires to dictate which laws are passed then we become a representative democracy where the majority gets what they want regardless of the rights of the minority.

I can’t count the times I’ve criticized Barack Obama over things he has said or done and then been told that I am only criticizing him because he is black. No, I am criticizing him because he has violated the law. These same people never complained when I was leveling my criticism at George W. Bush.

I stand not for party, I stand for the rule of law. Our Constitution is the Supreme Law of the land, and our Bill of Rights are part of that law. I am against anything that violates both. I am also for the full implementation of existing law when it has been passed in accordance to the legal powers granted government.

For 28 years now our government has had existing immigration laws which it has refused to enforce. This lies at the feet of both political parties. Democrats have had complete control over the presidency and Congress, and so have Republicans. Both have failed to see that our immigration laws are enforced to the fullest extent.

Now they are telling me that our system is broken and needs to be fixed. Say they do, say they pass some form of immigration reform. I’m bet you my entire life’s savings, the deeds to my home and my vehicles that if they do all it will be is window dressing. They will spruce up the law a little bit, grant a pathway to citizenship, and then go about business as usual. Then, if our country survives for another 20-30 years we will be told that our immigration system is broken and needs to be fixed. It will be because neither party wants to do anything substantial to stop the flow of illegal aliens into this country. The Republican base needs illegal workers for their farms and the Democrats want a new batch of voters every couple decades.

But don’t you dare tell me that our President can decide for himself that he will take it upon himself to legislate. Don’t you dare tell me that if a majority of the people want a law enacted that Congress is obligated to enact it.

There are limits as to the powers granted each branch of our government and there are limits in regards to what they may enact laws upon. By Mr. Obama saying that if Congress doesn’t do something he will it only shows that he has no regard for the separations of power put into our Constitution. If Congress lets him get away with it, again, they will have shown they have no regard for those same separation of powers.
This should worry you. You may be content now to sit back and let them pass all these laws that violate the Constitution and limit your rights, but what are you going to do when they begin passing laws that prohibit you from doing something you do care about? By the time that happens, if it hasn’t already, then government will have grown too big, too powerful, to stop it.

Then, as Winston Churchill so eloquently said, “If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.”

No matter your personal views on the individual issues that face this nation, this is a spiritual battle for the survival of our nation. Our government can only function when the people of this country understand and demand that those they elect to represent them act in accordance with what the Constitution says. When the morality and the people’s understanding of their system of government become corrupt and degraded then their government becomes corrupt as well.

The corruptness that permeates, not only our nation’s, but our state capitols as well, is a reflection upon the people that inhabit this country. These men and women are not politicians, they are public servants who are elected to carry out the will of the people according to law. If we become corrupt, it inevitably follows that they will to. The problem is that when they become corrupt they also become powerful and then can wield their power against the people they were chosen to represent when the people become tired of their abuse of power.

Whatever happens in the future, although I may bitch and moan about government, my real anger is kindled towards the people of this country who allowed government to become this tyrannical monster that it is. It is you I blame for what is coming. It is because you cared more about having fun than educating yourselves that our country is in the state it’s in.

So keep that in mind the next time you get mad at government over something. If you had done your job as a citizen and kept informed maybe we could have prevented government from becoming this monster that regulates, controls, and monitors almost every aspect of our lives.

I sure hope you’re happy.

I Am Not Accountable To You

I just returned from the polls awhile ago, having done my civic duty and voted. The other night at work someone asked me how I was going to vote, for Republican candidates, or Democrat. I said why does it matter? I wasn’t being sarcastic, I was being serious. Why should party take precedence over principle?

I don’t associate myself with any political party, I’m registered as an independent, which, to me, means that I am capable of independent thinking, not relying upon a political party with a specific platform and agenda to dictate how and what I think.

I do not need a group of corrupt lapdogs, [political parties], for the bankers or special interest groups to dictate to me which candidate to vote for, or how to vote on ballot measures. These people all work for the same people and our rights and our best interests are the least of their concerns.

I believe, as did George Washington, “The Constitution is the guide which I never will abandon.” (To the Boston Selectmen, 28 July 1795) In January of 1979 I raised my right hand and swore an oath, which declares, ” I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.”

Like many people who join the military, I did so only because I needed a job and the military offered full time employment plus good benefits. Upholding the oath I took upon enlisting, and upon re-enlisting twice more, never really crossed my mind.

Nonetheless, an oath once taken is binding for life. An oath is defined as “a solemn promise, often involving a divine witness, regarding one’s future action or behavior.” Therefore, even though I gave it little thought, I will be held accountable to God when it comes to how well I upheld that oath.

As I grew older I began to pay more attention to what was happening in this country. I still knew little to nothing about our Constitution and the men who wrote it. But I was concerned with the direction I saw our country heading. Finally, as a matter of personal pride, I felt I could no longer bitch and moan about things our government was doing unless I educated myself as to what government was actually supposed to be doing.

So, I began studying the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the beliefs held by the men who participated in creating these pillars of our system of government. What I found was that neither political party fully represents those principles. Sure, there is always a lesser of two evils, but choosing between two evils still gives you evil. It’s like asking how you would like to die; a slow painful death due to illness or a quick bullet to the head. It doesn’t matter, you still end up dead. So it is with choosing between the lesser of two evils. The only way to save our country is by standing up for what you truly believe in.

I find it both sad and amusing that people by the thousands will flock to our nation’s capital to gaze upon our country’s founding documents yet they know little to nothing as to what they say. Why does a piece of faded parchment hold more importance to people than the principles the writing upon those parchments outline?

As one who now understands the sacred obligation I took to uphold the Constitution, I can no longer vote for the lesser of two evils. My conscience demands that I vote for what I believe in, anything less would be a violation of that oath.

I have a ballcap that I wear which says Oathkeeper Since 1979. I wear it proudly as a badge of my dedication to the oath that I took to support the Constitution against All enemies, both foreign and domestic.

There is also an organization called Oathkeepers. Of all the organizations, including political parties, the Oathkeepers are the ones I most closely align myself with. Although not a paying member of Oathkeepers, I believe in, and adhere to, their stated mission, which is, “Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of current and formerly serving military, reserves, National Guard, veterans, Peace Officers, and Fire Fighters who will fulfill the Oath we swore, with the support of like minded citizens who take an Oath to stand with us, to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, so help us God. Our Oath is to the Constitution.

Our motto is “Not on our watch!”

Being a citizen of this great nation is more than just simply being born here, or naturalized. It is more than just flying the flag on holidays, voting and paying your taxes. It also entails understanding our system of government, the principles this country was founded upon, and most importantly, living your life in support of the beliefs held by our Founders.

It is sad enough that the majority of the people in this country do not understand, or care about upholding the principles which made this country great. It is even worse when we tolerate others to come to this country whose sole reason for coming here is to leech from us the many benefits we provide them. It is intolerable that we allow certain peoples to come here whose ideology and beliefs run contradictory to what this nation stands for and work to undermine the principles upon which America was founded.

So today I voted. If there was no candidate which I felt would uphold the oath they would swear to support and defend the Constitution, I left that choice blank. My oath, my sacred allegiance is to the Constitution, not to the corrupt political parties which have both actively sought to undermine it.

It matters little to me that one party does less damage than the other. In that manner I am also a Three Percenter in that I will no longer tolerate any further usurpation of power by my government and no further erosion of my rights.

I may upset many with the things I have just said because by my voting for principle over party I am taking away votes from the lesser of the two evils presented me and allowing the worse of the two to win. I don’t care! As John Quincy Adams once said, “Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost.”

My oath to uphold the Constitution is binding upon me until death. My love of country and my personal honor demand that I do what is right, what is not politically expedient. If that means I stand alone among millions, or I garner the disgust and anger of those who are willing to sacrifice their beliefs because it is better to have the lesser evil, then so be it. But I am not accountable to you, it will be up to God to judge me in that respect. I have made my choice and you will have to make yours. I can only say that, although I am distressed by the direction our country is taking, I sleep soundly at night knowing I stood for what is right.

Life Is Not Politically Correct

Allow me to ask you a simple question. If you had to choose between someone hurling insults at you, or someone threatening you, which would you choose? The logical answer would be to choose to be insulted rather than be threatened. Why then is so much emphasis place, these days, on the things people can and cannot say because they may ‘offend’ someone?

When I was growing up there was an old saying my parents kept repeating. It went, “Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never harm me.” In a perfect world people would refrain from saying hurtful things to another, but this isn’t a perfect world and things get said that shouldn’t have been. But there is a little thing called the First Amendment to the Constitution which guarantees our right to say things, even if others find them offensive.

When I was going to high school there was a guy who made it his personal mission in life to insult me every chance he got. I would try to come back with a witty reply but he was so quick witted that he could come back with a retort that made anything I said make me look even worse. So I learned to live with the insults…I developed a thick skin and learned not to let them bother me.

Just this morning I found him on Facebook and sent him a message, not complaining, but thanking him for toughening me up for the things that life would throw at me. What he did for me reminds me of that old Johnny Cash song A Boy Named Sue where a drifter dad names his kid Sue because he knows he won’t be around to toughen the kid up and he knows that by naming him Sue the kid will either get tough or die.

People learn things from the experiences they face in life. If their lives have been sheltered and protected from adversity, then when adversity finally comes they will not know how to handle it. I’d rather be exposed to hardship, to insult, to adversity early on in life, and learn how to handle it, rather than live a sheltered life then suddenly be faced with hardship in later years. But not now, not in America. It seems everyone wants their kids to grow up without facing hardship. As a friend so often says, America is quickly becoming a nation of pussy’s.

What has become of this country when the people who inhabit it aren’t willing to stand up for their beliefs? I guess that pre-supposes that they actually have any beliefs and not just are following the herd without any real thoughts of their own.

If people had any real beliefs we wouldn’t see this constant flip flopping back and forth every 4 years when we elect a new president. Not that I’m saying one party is better than the other, it is just that people go four years with a president of one party, then are not satisfied, and then vote for a candidate from the other party and after 4 years get tired of that person and the cycle keeps repeating itself over and over and over.

The problem is that people don’t have any beliefs of their own so they are guided by emotions. If a candidate tugs at the right strings they vote for them based not upon research, but upon how good that candidate makes them feel. That is not your head voting, that is your heart. Due to the fact that many do not have any core beliefs of their own they are easily swayed by con men and corrupt career politicians who know how to say the right things to get you to vote for them instead of the other corrupt career politician.

But I drift from my subject.

It is perfectly alright for you to have beliefs of your own, but you must remember that you are not the only person on this planet and every single human being also has that right. Some of their beliefs may not be in agreement with yours, but that does not give you the right to silence them because their views disagree with yours.

I have gotten into numerous discussions regarding certain issues which have caused others to react, sometimes violently, to my views. Gun control, or my opinion that there should be less, not more of it, is one of those issues.

In a perfect world when confronted with conclusive evidence that something people had believed to be true was a lie, they would discount the lie and cling to the truth. But this is not a perfect world and in the issue of gun control people would rather recite the litany of lies they have been told about guns rather than accept cold hard facts.

Then there is this political correctness nonsense that permeates society these days. What is political correctness if it is not a form of censorship that seeks to silence views and opinions that are controversial or offensive to others? Allow me to give two examples to explain my point.

Recently, in Georgia, a man went to vote wearing an NRA, (National Rifle Association) ball cap. He was told that he had to remove his cap and leave it outside before he could enter the polling place. He was told the NRA is a GOP organization and that by his wearing that cap he was promoting GOP principles and that violated election law.

Is the Second Amendment, and the right it protects, a GOP issue or is it an issue of those who support the Constitution and the Bill of Rights versus those who don’t? I can see if he was wearing a shirt or hat that said vote no on Measure XXXX, but no, this was a hat for an organization that stands up for our rights…even though you may not to exercise it, your right as well. Why should a person be banned for wearing a hat that advertises for a group that stands for our rights?

Then there was the guy in Webster Texas who was told to remove his American flag from the balcony outside his apartment because it ‘offended’ the Muslim community. Say what? How can the flag of the country that people chose to live in be offensive? If the American flag is so offensive to people’s of another nation, maybe those people do not belong in this nation, maybe our immigration laws need to be changed to prohibit their coming here if our flag, our customs, our beliefs ‘offend’ them!

Everyone is entitled to their own beliefs, that is a simple truth. Not everyone has to agree with those beliefs, that also is a simple fact. But to silence one, or prohibit them from speaking their mind on issues they feel are of importance, (no matter how ridiculous those beliefs may sound) goes against everything the First Amendment stands for. Freedom of speech means exactly what it says, you are free to say whatever you want, no matter how offensive.

It is just a matter of having a certain amount of restraint and not saying certain things just to be offensive. That is where common sense and a small measure of respect for others comes in. But to tell someone they cannot discuss an issue like immigration and its affect upon our nation simply because certain ethnic groups may be offended is wrong. To tell a person that they cannot stand for the principles that were held by our nation’s Founders because they offend people is also wrong.

Nine times out of ten, if people would put aside their emotions and actually think about what someone was saying they might come to the conclusion that they were wrong and the view they once found to be offensive was in fact the truth. But then again that precludes a certain amount of thinking, which far too many are loathe to do.

I will conclude this with a quote from a speech delivered to the officers at Newburgh by George Washington, “… if Men are to be precluded from offering their Sentiments on a matter, which may involve the most serious and alarming consequences, that can invite the consideration of Mankind, reason is of no use to us; the freedom of Speech may be taken away, and dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep, to the Slaughter.”

So speak your mind America, and be man enough to allow others to do the same without getting all butt hurt by what they say. Also, be willing enough to admit that, if provided with evidence to the contrary, that your beliefs were wrong.

I Just Don’t Get It

I’ve been at this, [writing articles], for quite some time now. I don’t do it for pay, for your entertainment, or for my own personal enjoyment. I do it because I don’t like what I see happening in my country and I am trying to awaken the people so that they too can become as mad, and afraid, about what direction our country is taking. But as of yet, I have not seen that anything I have said has made any difference.

Sure I understand that my articles may reach people and affect a change in their way of thinking, but I have yet to hear, or see, that change occur in sufficient numbers to alter the course our country is taking. So I have to ask myself, ‘Why do I bother?’

The only answer I can come up with is that after having done all the research I have regarding our system of government, the founding of our nation, and the overall thoughts regarding liberty and freedom which were held by our nation’s Founders, I can say that I am right and most people are wrong. I am not trying to be arrogant and cocky, I have the facts to back that statement up. Can most Americans back up their views regarding the purpose of government with facts and evidence? If not, then I rest my case.

I was raised to believe that there is right and wrong, and that it is good to stand up for what is right and good to take a stand against what is wrong. What I see happening in America today is wrong. Our government is corrupt, it abuses it’s powers, it limits our freedom, and it is evil.

I simply cannot understand how anyone can place anything above learning the truth about the actions of their government. Have people become so apathetic, so complacent that they can sit back and enjoy their favorite television show without even the slightest twinge of guilt that they are letting their country go to hell right before their eyes without even a token comment of concern?

If someone, a neighbor, a cop, or even me, where to knock on your door, and when you answered shackle you and put you in a cell, you would protest that you were innocent and why were you being detained. Yet by your inaction, and by the action of the people you vote for without your understanding of our system of government, a prison is being built all around you.

The only thing that separates a free man from a slave is that a free man has rights and slaves do not. Well for cryin out loud people your God-given unalienable rights are being stripped from you by bureaucrats all the way from your local and state to the highest levels in our country. And you sit back and do nothing!

They tell you that all these things are done for your security, your safety, and you willingly accept these platitudes. Your phone calls and e mails are monitored by the NSA and you say so what? Your every action is filmed and recorded by an endless array of cameras and surveillance methods, (and soon to be a sky filled with spy drones), and you say so what? Your right to defend yourself is being limited by laws which say when you can use force to protect yourself and your family, and by laws which take away your ability to own the weapons to fight against tyranny, AND YOU SAY SO WHAT?

And you call yourselves Americans?!?

I’m sure at some point in each of your lives you have seen an old western movie with a cattle drive, or cattle grazing out in the open land. Those cows felt that they were free, as much as a cow can be free. They were free to graze, to sleep, to reproduce as they pretty much saw fit. But they were still slaves to their owners, and their eventual destination was the slaughterhouse.

Just because you can make certain choices in your life; what clothes to buy, what to eat for supper, where to work, what to watch on TV, etc. etc. it does not mean that you are free. You are in a controlled pen where you are allowed to live under the illusion of freedom when all your real rights have been taken from you by the very people you vote for to safeguard them. And you are so blind to it that you think that people such as myself are your enemy.

I could, quite honestly, care less about you. I don’t care if you sit at home watching idiotic TV shows, or if you are gay, or if you grow weed in your back yard. You leave me alone and I’ll leave you alone. I get upset, however, when the choices you make at the election booth causes my rights to be curtailed. You have settled for evil and corruption instead of choosing for wise and honorable men to fill the seats of power across our land, and your poor choices have led us to where we are today.

I often hear of tolerance. I hear people say I must be tolerant of other people’s views and thoughts. Well when are people going to start being tolerant about my rights? When can our children pray in school and be shown tolerance? When can I own the weapons to defend my family and my liberty and I be shown tolerance? When can I be free to pick up the phone, or send an e mail, and have my private conversations free from peering eyes and ears?

I know I am not, but if I were the last human being in this country who felt this way, I would rather stand alone than be counted among you sheep who blindly follow your shepherds to your own destruction.

As I have said, I have been at this for a long time now. In fact I am going on my second decade of writing these commentaries. I have yet to have ONE person come up and say that what I have said has caused them to change their way of thinking. I have met other like-minded individuals, but I have not made a difference. Hence the anger and hostile tone of this article.

I have pretty much lost all faith in the American people. They won’t believe anything I say until the destruction and ruin of this republic, that I so often predict, actually happens and shatters their little cocoon and reality slaps them across the face. But by then it will be too late, the game will have been lost and our rights forever stripped away.

So go ahead, go back to your TV or whatever else it is that keeps you occupied. Pay no heed to what our nation’s founding documents say. But one day if you hear shooting, or armored vehicles coming down your street, remember that Neal tried to tell you this would happen and you were to concerned with your own entertainment and self-gratification to listen.

Go Ahead, Call Me Paranoid

Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they aren’t after you.” ~Joseph Heller~

I don’t know how many of my readers are movie buffs but I like movies, all kinds of movies. I recently watched the latest Captain America film, The Winter Soldier, and the plot hit me like a bolt of lightning. If any of you like films, but haven’t seen this one, I’ll try not to give away too much of the story but I need to explain why I’m talking about a Captain America movie.

The basic plot of the film is that SHEILD, the agency that was supposedly protecting our safety, has been infiltrated by HYDRA, the bad guys in the first Captain America film. They have a new plan for global domination and it’s up to Captain America and the Black Widow, (Scarlett Johansson) to stop them.

Throughout the film there were scenes that screamed at me, “YES, YES, This is exactly what’s happening right now in America.” One in particular is how when they were trying to locate Captain America and the Black Widow they spoke of monitoring e-mails, Twitter posts, and other social media for any mention of his name. That reminded me of how the NSA is currently, and has been for quite awhile, monitoring our lives via their data mining of the internet and phone conversations. But I stray from my main point.

The scene I really want to talk about occurs when Cap and the Black Widow discover the bunker where SHIELD was founded. In it they find an ancient computer system and they insert a flash drive that activates the system. It is then that Dr. Zola, the Red Skull’s scientist sidekick from the first Captain America film makes his appearance.

This Dr. Zola is a computer generated version in which all his thoughts and memories have been stored on computers, sort of like in the Johnny Depp film Transcendence. To stall the heroes of the film Dr. Zola explains HYDRA’s plans to them, and it is this plan that is the key point of my article.

To get my point across I will have to provide you with the entire quote from the film, so if you haven’t seen it and don’t want to have it spoiled, I suggest you stop reading now. If not, here is the quote in its entirety:

Dr Zola: HYDRA was founded on the belief that humanity could not be trusted with its own freedom. What we did not realize was that if you tried to take that freedom, they resist. The war taught us much. Humanity needed to surrender its freedom willingly. After the war, S.H.I.E.L.D. was founded, and I was recruited. The new HYDRA grew, a beautiful parasite inside S.H.I.E.L.D. For 70 years, HYDRA has been secretly feeding crises, reaping war. And when history did not cooperate, history was changed.

Natasha Romanoff: That’s impossible. S.H.I.E.L.D. would’ve stopped you.

Dr. Zola: Accidents will happen. HYDRA created a world so chaotic that humanity is finally ready to sacrifice its freedom to gain its security. Once the purification process is complete, HYDRA’s New World Order will arise…”

There are two points in this quote that I would like to address. First is the part regarding how people have to give up their freedom willingly. How many of you think that say fifty, or a hundred years ago, the government could have just come out and said, “We are going to ban the Bill of Rights.” and the people would have calmly accepted that? Pretty unlikely, isn’t it?

But, if you create a state of fear it is human nature that the masses will look to its leaders to protect them from all these supposed threats that they face…even if it means giving up a few of their rights. That is why I have repeatedly quoted Benjamin Franklin in my articles, who stated, “Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.”

I’m reminded of a scene from one of my favorite films V For Vendetta, where V addresses the people of England, “And where once you had the freedom to object, to think and speak as you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillance coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission. How did this happen?

Who’s to blame? Well, certainly, there are those who are more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable. But again, truth be told, if you’re looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror. I know why you did it. I know you were afraid.

Who wouldn’t be? War, terror, disease. There were a myriad of problems which conspired to corrupt your reason and rob you of your common sense. Fear got the best of you, and in your panic you turned to insert any government agency established to protect you .”

Yes they are films, yes they are fiction, but does that mean that the words they say cannot actually happen in reality?

Just look at what has happened in America to our rights, and all because we are afraid of something. We fear terrorism so we allow the creation of Homeland Security, the passage of The Patriot Act, and all these other laws and regulations which violate our rights. All based upon the fear of bogeymen terrorists. We pass laws violating our sacred right to keep and bear arms because we fear that our children might end up victims of school shootings.

Fear people, fear is how they control and manipulate you. People fear what they do not know and do not understand. That is why I harp incessantly about becoming informed. If you knew the truth about things you would not be afraid, you would be angry, and an angry people would not willingly give up their rights for a lie, no matter how big it is.

After all, in that Captain America film Agent Romanoff, (the Black Widow) mentions Operation Paperclip in which German scientists were brought to America after WW II. THAT is NOT fiction, it is reality…LOOK IT UP!!! So there can be truth in movies. You just have to be looking for it, and informed enough to recognize it for what it is. They, (Hollywood) may just be rubbing your face in the fact that they can tell you the truth and you are too uninformed to even see it.

And my second point in Dr. Zola’s quote comes when he talks of the purification. To explain I will have to give away more of the film, but that’s the way these things go. Later in the film the heroes learn that HYDRA’s master plan is to float 3 of those hovering aircraft carriers like the one from the Avengers film. They will be linked to a satellite which will decide who is a threat to HYDRA and must be eliminated. The aircraft carriers have the ability to target multiple objectives and kill thousands within seconds.

That is the purification, getting rid of anyone that poses a threat to HYDRA’s plans for a World Order.

You say that couldn’t happen, the people would rise up. Is that so? Let’s look at some history. Before the fall of the Soviet Union, when it first came into existence, Josef Stalin purged, (purified), his country by killing off anywhere between 20 to 60 million people. Did they rise up? Did the people of Germany rise up when the SS rounded up all dissidents? Have the people of America risen up when an average citizen is targeted by government for exercising their unalienable rights?

The simple answer is NO. People tend not to notice the atrocities going on right in front of their very eyes until it affects them personally. But by then it is too late to do anything about it. Such is the state of affairs in America today. People such as myself who stand for limited government and the preservation of our unalienable rights have been labeled as extremists and the media has caused you to fear us. It is because the vast majority of the people in this country are ignorant and uninformed that they buy into that lie. We don’t want to hurt you. In fact we honestly don’t even think about you that much. All we want is for people to leave us alone and let us live our lives alone with the freedom our Founders intended we all have.

Did you know that during the purges in the former Soviet Union, many of those rounded up and imprisoned or killed were those in key positions in government who helped establish Communism in Russia? I have heard it said that they were referred to as ‘useful idiots.’ They helped further the cause, but before they could realize that they had been betrayed by the cause they supported, they were put in prison or killed off.

Think about that.

In closing I would like to leave you with one last quote. This one is not from a film but from the time when the NAZI’s were in charge in Germany. It comes from a Protestant Pastor named Martin Niemöller. It is well worth your time to ponder his words carefully:

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

We, those of us who speak incessantly about rights, pose you absolutely no threat. In fact we are the guardians of YOUR rights as well. If we are gone, who will be left to protect you? If you answer the government, you have not understood a damned thing I’ve just said and you are beyond hope.

So please, for once in your lives think about things. Put aside your political party prejudices and think about the facts. Do some research if you must, but become informed before it is too late.

I Can Only Do So Much

After my last couple articles I was told that I may never see the results of my writing. I was told that I may be changing people, influencing their thought process, but that I may never see it. That may be so, but if someone provided me with information that was truly mind altering and earth shattering I would try my best to contact them to thank them. Yet after 15 plus years of writing these articles I have not received one single thank you note. Sure I’ve gotten plenty of responses, but they have all been from people who already see things the way I do.

What does that tell you? It tells me that I am not making any difference. Statistically speaking out of all the people I work with, if I were making a difference in the big picture I would also be changing the minds and attitudes of at least one or two people at work. But that isn’t happening. I’m not saying that there aren’t people reading my articles, there are. What I’m saying is that for some reason the information I am providing is either not getting through to their heads or these people simply don’t care enough to take action based upon the information I provide.

Look at the overall apathy and complacency of the American people and you will see that most people think that by their going to the polls every couple of years they are participating enough in the political process and that ends their personal responsibility as citizens. Even then the voter turnout is pathetic, at best.

I just read an article this morning that touched upon this very subject. The article, written by Ron Ewart, provided some data from the 2012 presidential election. According to statistics 65.9 million people voted for Barack Obama in 2012 while 60.9 million voted for Mitt Romney with roughly 2 million voting for third party candidates.

That totals out to 129.2 million out of 240.9 million registered voters going to the polls, or 53.6%. Just barely over half the registered voters even cared enough to show up to vote. What does that tell you about how apathetic people are? It certainly is telling to me. It tells me almost half the people in this country don’t give enough of a shit to even go vote, let alone become INFORMED voters.

Two of my previous articles discussed how the banking interests own and control this country, and how money is created. I got no responses to either. People just go around thinking we’re in an economic slump and that someday things will get better. What fools! Our country, and our government in particular, cannot go on borrowing money to fund its operation forever without the entire system collapsing.

Aside from those few who regularly respond to these articles I write, I’d like to ask the rest of you if you know what the Gross Domestic Product is. According to Wikepedia the Gross Domestic Product is, “The monetary value of all the finished goods and services produced within a country’s borders in a specific time period, though GDP is usually calculated on an annual basis. It includes all of private and public consumption, government outlays, investments and exports less imports that occur within a defined territory.”

In other words, the Gross Domestic Product, or GDP is the net worth of the entire country. Currently our GDP is $16.8 trillion. Do you know what our national debt is at this very moment? It is $17.8 trillion. That’s a deficit of $1 trillion dollars. It means we owe more than our country is worth. Yet people think this shell game can go on forever? People think that they can keep asking their government to do more and more for them without having the money to pay for these programs? I’d sure like to know how because I don’t see any way of continuing on like this without it all collapsing like a house of cards. And when it does you will wish you had prepared for it, or at least paid a bit more attention to what I was trying to warn you about.

Yet the news media isn’t reporting on this because if they did that would only hasten the collapse as people rushed to the banks in an attempt to get their money, or they pulled it out of the stock market before it all collapsed. So what they do is keep us distracted with other stories, such as this outbreak of Ebola. What works better at keeping people from educating themselves but keeping them in a constant state of fear?

Now everywhere I go I hear talk of Ebola and how it is in America now. What happens when people get scared? They ask their government to do something to ease their fears. So Mr. Obama has appointed an Ebola Czar to manage the crisis. And what does this new Ebola Czar bring to the table as credentials? Is he familiar with contagious diseases and filoviruses? No, he is a damned lawyer!

According to a CBS News article this new Ebola Czar, Ron Klain, is a mere figurehead, someone who is appointed merely to give us the impression that more is being done than already could have been done. According to CBS, “Don’t expect to see Klain briefing the public on the contours of the Ebola response. That will be left to Tom Frieden, head of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Allergy and Infectious Disease Director Anthony Fauci and relevant cabinet officials, as required.”

If the CDC is going to be handling the actual work in combating Ebola what do we need a lawyer in charge of an entire administration for? And don’t tell me this new Czar won’t have a huge staff the handle things that are better left to those who are familiar with infectious diseases.

I’m no friggin doctor but you tell me, what is the first step that is usually taken to prevent the spread of a contagious disease? I would think it would be to quarantine those who may have been subjected to it and to block travel from infected areas into non-infected areas. In other words you first try to contain it before it spreads to others.

Once you have it contained you work on a cure, and that is something the CDC should have been doing for years, since Ebola is not something new, they’ve know about it for years. Then you begin trying to find out where it originated. This is where it gets interesting.

Some say that Ebola is/was introduced by our government. I don’t buy that, although I wouldn’t put it past them to consider it. I have read, however, articles saying that the US has bio-warfare labs in Africa, particularly in Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea, all of who were not participants in the Biological Warfare Convention. Some say that these labs were working on either creating a vaccine for Ebola, or in finding a way to weaponize it and it somehow got out.

You have to ask yourself, this current outbreak is the Zaire Ebola, the most dangerous of the five subtypes of Ebola. This strain of Ebola originated 3500 kilometers, or roughly 2,200 miles away from where the current outbreak exists. How did it travel that far when Ebola, other than by coming into contact with particles from an infected person, is not transmitted by air? I’m not saying it was how this outbreak occurred but if the facts regarding these bio-warfare labs is true then it certainly may explain it.

I’m not trying to scare anyone. I’m merely trying to get people to think for themselves, to do a little research on their own before believing everything they are being told. I don’t ask that you believe me either, I only ask that you look for the answers yourselves.

But I know, from past experience and an observation of people’s behavior that they won’t do that. They prefer to be told their information from someone who appears to be trustworthy rather than do a little bit of work to find out the truth on their own.

So where does that leave us? It leaves us with a nation full of either misinformed, or apathetic people who will go along with whatever they are being told by people in positions of authority. Let me give you one last scenario and I’ll close up.

Have you ever seen a herd of sheep and the shepherd? Who is it that is in a position of authority in that scenario? The shepherd of course. And what eventually happens to the sheep who follow him? They are led to the slaughter.

Keep that in mind would you?

A Very Short Rant

In another step to make us all safer the government, in this case the DEA, (Drug Enforcement Administration), has made life more difficult for everyone just to punish a few who abuse the system. Due to the fact that vicoden is routinely sold on the black market, and the fact that many are abusing the drug, the DEA has re-classified vicoden from a Class III drug to a Class II drug. What this means is that doctors can no longer phone in prescriptions for vicoden, the patient must go to their physician and get a written prescription form, then take that to the pharmacy to be filled. Also, refills will no longer be authorized, meaning that if you have a standing prescription for this drug you will need to go to your doctor every time you need a refill.

It seems that this is how government works these days, it punishes everyone for the actions of a few. It is the same with gun control laws that seek to restrict the rights of the majority of gun owners who are law abiding citizens based upon the actions of a few irresponsible people. It is the same with TSA searches which violate the rights of everyone based upon the actions of a few deranged people.

Whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty? Why must everyone suffer because a few people screw up?

Yet nobody cares, everyone goes about their lives meekly accepting each of these new laws because they all believe the government has our best interests in mind.

Sheep, that’s all we are, a nation of sheep who let the good shepherd government herd us around.

PATHETIC!!!!

What Was I Thinking?

Years ago when I first started this journey of seeking out the truth I was just as ignorant and misinformed as you are right now. I thought I knew enough about how our system of government was supposed to work based upon what they had taught me in school. It was only when I started researching for myself that I learned that I didn’t know a damned thing. Once I realized I didn’t know the first thing about how our system of government was designed I decided that if I wanted to make truly informed decisions at the polls I had best educate myself, so I began reading everything I could that would help me understand the how and why regarding our Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

Once I started learning I assumed, (first mistake) that if I took the time to put to paper the things I was learning that others would care enough to read them and change their views as to the purpose of government. Boy was I wrong.

There is an old saying, “You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink.” After nearly two decades of writing articles I would like to revise that saying to fit what I have learned. So, were I to say it today it would go something like this, “You can provide people with information but you can’t make them think.”

The information that I provide people is available for anyone who cares enough to seek it out. You can go to your public library and find plenty of books containing most of our nation’s founding documents. You can also find them at any well stocked bookstore. And if you are too lazy to go to the library, or too cheap to buy them, you can find them without ever having to leave your home if you simply do a little searching on the internet.

But will people do this? No, they expect me to read it all for them then condense it into an easy to digest form so that they can read it and go back to their lives. You know, I would do that if the things I write actually made a difference in the way people thought about government, but it doesn’t.

I can’t name one person who has told me that something that I have written has changed their views on government. I know a lot of people who read my articles but most of them are already of the same mindset as I am, therefore I am wasting my time writing if only they read these articles. I write for those who still believe our government abides by the Constitution and that they still enjoy all their rights. I write for those who still believe in the two party system and that those we vote for actually represent us when in office.

I don’t know what I was thinking when I began spewing out article after article. Did I honestly think I could change the minds of millions of people? Did I honestly believe that I could undo generations of brainwashing and get people to think for themselves? I must have, otherwise how can you explain all the time and effort I put into writing over 600 articles. I can’t believe I was that naive, that my ego was so big that I could make any difference in the way people thought. And that’s just it, people seem to not want to think at all.

But I have come to see the light. People don’t want to think for themselves, they want to be spoon fed their knowledge. Even then when knowledge is obtained they do not want to utilize it. They do not want to take any kind of stand that might alienate them from friends and family. Standing up for something that is not a commonly held belief takes courage. Most people would prefer to be a part of the crowd, members of a clique, anything other than be alone in their views. So they refuse to stand for beliefs that would set them apart from their friends and family.

Well I’m sorry, I’ve had just about enough of being people’s bitch. I’m not going to waste my time writing articles for people who refuse to put to use the information I provide them. From here on out if I write something it will because something interests me enough to offer my two cents on the subject. However, I will no longer do your work for you. If you honestly care enough about our country, about our system of government, about your rights, then YOU will take the time to go out and find the information yourself. I am done doing your work for you.

I have written plenty of articles explaining our Constitution, explaining the nature of our rights, and how our government has not adhered to its job of supporting and defending both. If people had read these articles and learned from them then I would have seen people becoming just as mad and frustrated as I am, but I see and hear nothing but a belief in a system that is clearly not functioning as it was intended it function.

So, I’m done with you. It’s not that I no longer care about my country, I do. I simply no longer care that you choose to wallow through life in complete ignorance of the truth. If you want to learn something then I recommend you go out and find the following books then read them yourself. I’ve read them all, some of them numerous times and that is how I’ve learned what I have. Now it’s your turn, because I am no longer going to share what I have learned with people who have no intention of putting that information to use.

Thomas Paine-The Rights of Man

The Federalist Papers-John Jay, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison

John Locke-Second Treatise on Civil Government

Joseph Story-Commentaries on the Constitution

Frederic Bastiat-The Law

Alexis de Tocqueville-Democracy in America

Those are your reading assignments and if you want to learn what I have learned you will turn off your TV’s and pick up a book and start learning it for yourself. But don’t look to me to do it for you any more, I’m finished.

If This Doesn’t Piss You Off…

“It is well that the people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.” ~Henry Ford~

“All the perplexities, confusions and distress in America arise not from defects in the Constitution or Confederation, not from a want of honor or virtue so much as from downright ignorance of the nature of coin, credit and circulation.” ~John Adams~

Although it infuriates me, I can see the reason why some people choose not to become upset over their governments abuse of power and its violation of their rights. I can understand how people may be willing to surrender their liberty just to feel a bit safer and more secure. Like I said, I can understand it even if I don’t agree with it.

What I can’t understand at all is why people don’t care to learn how they are being ripped off and used as slaves to enrich a bunch of fat cat bankers who we don’t vote for and who don’t give a rats ass about you and I. That I don’t understand at all. That should make everyone mad, no matter which political party you belong to, but for some reason it doesn’t. Either people don’t know how the system works, or they simply don’t care. I’m hoping it is the first reason because if it is the second then there is no hope and sooner or later we all are going to pay for the apathy and complacency of the majority. But I’m hoping that it is just as John Adams said all those years ago, a “… downright ignorance of the nature of coin, credit and circulation.”

If I were to ask you to define the words currency and money, how would you respond? Would you say that they are one and the same, that one word is interchangeable with the other? If you would answer that way then maybe it is time you took some time to learn about what money is, and how our currency is created. That is of course unless you want the price of goods to continue to skyrocket and witness our financial system eventually come crashing down around us.

Money, as defined by Black’s Legal Dictionary is a commodity which is scarce & must be valuable. It is a medium of exchange which is acceptable to the community, has specific units of value, and it retains its value.

Currency, on the other hand, is any form of exchange this is in circulation, be it real money, (gold and silver), or fiat money, (something we are told is money to be used in exchange). Take out a bill from your wallet or purse and look at it. It doesn’t matter if it is a one, or a hundred, they all have what I want to show you. If you look you will find the following on all bills printed by the U.S. Treasury, “This note is legal tender for all debts, public and private.”

When they say legal tender they mean it is something that can be offered as a form of payment. They DO NOT say money. What you carry around on you, and use to pay for goods and services is fiat money. Fiat money is something that is declared to be, just as it says, legal tender. That is it has the government’s stamp of approval as being an acceptable means of exchange for goods and services.

Money, as we know it, goes back to the earliest times of civilizations. The history of money is not something you need to know other than that over the course of the worlds existence people have used all kinds of things as mediums of exchange, or currency. Just to give you a couple quick examples some civilizations used sea shells as a means of paying for things while in others tally sticks were used. Tally sticks are sticks, and sometimes bones, with carved notches along their length. Each length was accepted as being of a certain value. When you wanted to purchase something you would break off the required number of segments and give them to the vendor in exchange for goods. They had no actual value but they were commonly accepted as being currency, not money, but currency, a means of exchange.

Real money, that is something that holds value, has for the most part been either gold or silver, and sometimes precious stones like diamonds and rubies. However, for the most part it was the use of either gold or silver coins that were the means of purchasing goods or services. However, carrying around large quantities of gold or silver coins was awkward, and often dangerous, so they came up with something easier, paper money.

The earliest forms of paper money were simply promissory notes. This is also the origin of the first banks. The earliest banks were simply institutions were people could deposit their gold or silver and be issued a note stating that was redeemable for real money at the bank of issuance. So a person could pay for something with these notes, and the seller could then take that note to the bank and exchange it for real money, gold or silver.

I don’t want to bore you with all this talks about banks and money, but there are a couple more things you need to understand before I continue. First off is that the United States Constitution only mentions money twice, both times in Article 1. In Section 8 it simply grants Congress the power to coin Money and regulate its value. In Section 10 it states that no State shall…coin money…or…make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts.

Secondly, as the banks grew and more and more people deposited all their real money into them for safekeeping, they began loaning out the money of their depositors to others and charging interest upon the money that was lent out. At this point it became more profitable for the banks to loan out the money of its depositors than as a facility which held on to it until it was needed by its rightful owners.

And finally, our currency supply has undergone many changes over the course of your countries existence. It wasn’t until my lifetime that we finally severed the tie between real money and fiat money. When I was just a kid you could still take paper money into certain banks and exchange it for silver or gold. The last of the Silver Certificates were issued in 1964 and in 1971 President Nixon took us completely off the Gold Standard which tied our currency to the value of gold. Since then our economic system has been based upon fiat currency which only has value because our government says it is legal tender in the payment of all debts, public and private. But you may as well be paying for things using Monopoly money or toilet paper for that matter. No real money is used as a means of exchange in this country any more. If you do see it then it is only when people who collect gold or silver show it to you.

So how is money created in America? It’s not as easy as you might think. The Treasury Department does not simply print out a bunch of new dollar bills, quarters, nickels, dimes, and just enter them into circulation. The process is much more lengthy and corrupt and it begins with our government.

Let’s say our government wants to fund a new program or agency, where do they get the money for it? I’m sure you’ve all seen in your local elections these bond measures where they issue bonds to pay for a project or program in your local community or state. Well the federal government does the same thing. If the federal government needs more money to fund a program they issue Treasury Bonds to pay for it.
Now a bond is nothing more than a fancy IOU that says if you pay me $50 now I will give you this piece of paper that you can redeem in five to ten years for $100. Those are the typical savings bonds that people buy for investment purposes. But keep in mind, someone, at some point in time has to pay the interest accumulated by all these bonds, and it isn’t the government which issues them.

Well the government couldn’t function by issuing a few paltry $100 savings bonds here and there…they need millions, if not billions of dollars to fund their programs. So the number, and amount of these bonds makes it so that only investment bankers can afford to purchase them in the quantities required to fund the operations of our government.

These investment banks such as; Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan Chase, and Citigroup, to name a few, buy up these Treasury Bonds. These bonds constitute a large portion of what we call our national debt. It is money the government has had to borrow, or in this case sell bonds, to pay for its various agencies and programs. But how does this have to do with our money? Let me continue and I’ll show you.

These investment banks have now purchased say a billion dollars worth of Treasury Bonds. Do they hold onto them? No, they then sell some, if not all, of them to the Federal Reserve Bank. This is step two of the process of creating currency in this country. The Federal Reserve is not a bank per se, not at least as we know banks. They have no depositors and they have no reserve currency on hand. They simply establish monetary policy and control our economy, but they have no money to loan out to others.

Now when I say loan out, or write a check, in the scope of this article I am not talking about physically handing over a sum of currency to another. No, aside for the actual possession of Treasury Bonds, most of these transactions are simply keystrokes on a computer transferring numbers from one account to another. No real money, or currency has exchanged hands at this point.

So, the Federal Reserve writes a check, or electronically transfers numbers to these investment banks in return for the bonds they purchased. At this point the investment banks can pay out currency based upon the balance upon their spread sheets, but it has all been created by a few keystrokes on a computer here and there. And remember, the money they show in their balance sheets was created by the Federal Reserve writing what was basically a bogus check. Since they have no money, what do they use to pay for these bonds if it is not a worthless check?

What happens when you or I write a check and we don’t have the funds in our account to cover it? We get penalized. Yet the FED does it all the time with these electronic creations of money to pay the bankers for the Treasury Bonds.

So the FED writes what is a worthless check for a bunch of IOU’s issued by the government. They then send these bonds over to the Department of Treasury which then prints out the face value of the bonds. It doesn’t always print out, as in our example, a billion dollars worth of currency, much of it is electronically added to balance sheets.

These electronic increases in bank statements is then used to pay the salaries of government employees, pay for the funding of wars to defense contractors, and pay for all the other services the government provides. This is step 3 of the process and where tangible currency first appears as people cash their paychecks and begin spending this created money. This is also why the Treasury only prints out a portion of the money created because most people’s pay is electronically deposited into their accounts and they never withdraw the entire amount, so only a fraction of the money created by this process is actually hard currency you can hold in your hand. The remainder is simply electronic entries transferred between computers.

Now this next step is where the banks get involved again and really screw the system up.

Have you ever heard of a thing called Fractional Reserve Banking? Fractional Reserve Banking is simply the fact that once you put money into an account the bank is only required by law to retain a fraction of it for your use. They can, and are required to pay you the full amount of your holdings but most people don’t withdraw their entire pay from the bank, so the bank now has the leeway to loan out the rest. This is step 4 of the process.

Let’s say John Q. Governmentworker gets a paycheck of $1,000 deposited into his account. If the Fractional Reserve rate is 10% then his bank is only required to keep $100 of his money on hand for him to use. It can loan out $900 of it to others.

So let’s say Susie Soccer Mom comes into the bank and wants to borrow money for repairs to her minivan. She needs $900. John Q’s bank then loans out his money to Susie and Susie then deposits it into her account so she can write a check to her auto mechanic.

But now, thanks to fractional reserve banking, Susie’s bank has a new deposit on its balance sheet and is only required to keep on hand 10%, so it loans out the remainder. The process goes on and on and on, with each step new funds being created all from the initial deposit of $1,000.

This currency is simply being created at each step of the process, nothing tangible or of value has ever been created. It is simply a process by which the supply of currency increases based upon the amount held by banks on their deposit sheets.

Did you know that inflation is not the price of goods and services going up? No, inflation, as defined by most dictionaries is an increase in the quantity of currency in an economy. What is really happening is not that prices are going up, it is the spending power, or value, of the currency is going down. So the more money that is introduced into our system will only bring about goods and services requiring more and more of this worthless paper to pay for them.

And remember, President Nixon, in 71 took us completely off the gold standard so that one dollar now has no set value. Also, are you aware that since the creation of the Federal Reserve Bank the dollar has lost 96% of its purchasing value? Since the creation of the Federal Reserve inflation has risen 2302%.

One more thing before I continue with the process of money creation in America. After the passage of the Federal Reserve Act, Congressman Charles A. Lindbergh warned, “The new law will create inflation whenever the trusts want inflation. From now on depressions will be scientifically created.”

The only reason things cost more these days is because they are pumping more and more of this worthless currency into the economy. One ounce of gold or silver still buys basically the same quantity of goods or services that it did back in 1913. It is the paper money we use that is worth less and less.

Now for the next step. When you or I work, what are we paid in? As with most, are pay is electronically transferred into our accounts. But when we go to the bank and make a withdrawal, what do we get? Dollars, or more specifically, Federal Reserve Notes. So this money, if you dare call it that, which we carry around in our wallets and purses is nothing but transferred debt. It was created through fraud and based upon debt from its very inception. When we hold a dollar bill in our hands we are holding $1 worth of debt. And who is responsible for paying off this debt? Why we are, of course.

When you work the government taxes you. The funds they withhold from your pay do not go towards the funding of the government as they would have you believe. It goes completely towards paying off the debt they incurred when they first sold all those Treasury Bonds.
Remember when I gave you the example of a simple $100 savings bond? Remember I asked who would pay the interest on it? Well, there you have it. For every government bond, be it a savings bond or the Treasury bonds, you pay the interest on them via your taxes.

In 1984 a special commission set up by President Reagan reported, “100% of what is collected is absorbed solely by interest on the Federal Debt…all individual income tax revenues are gone before one nickel is spent on the services taxpayers expect from government.”

Now you may think then that all we have to do is pay down, or maybe even pay off the national debt and all will be good. Not so.

Remember, there is no real money in circulation today. Every penny in circulation was created out of debt. So if there was only $1 in existence, but it was created by borrowing it, where are you going to get the money to pay the interest on that debt? The only way is to borrow money to pay the interest. But then you have borrowed $2 to pay off your original $1 loan. It is economically impossible to pay off a debt when there is no real money in existence. If we paid off the debt, as it exists today, our entire economy would collapse because the dollar would lose every cent of its value.

However, all this while, through the entire process, banks are loaning out money, making interest off you and your labor, and holding as collateral all that you purchase. In a sense everything each and every one of us owns is collateral on the national debt. And this is how they own you and control you, via debt, both personal and national.

In 1934 Congressman Charles Lindbergh tried to warn us what was going on. He warned us of a ‘bankers manifesto’ which explained how the bankers meant to enslave and control us.

From U.S. Senate Document No. 43, 73rd Congress, I quote, ”

The ultimate ownership of all property is in the State; individual so-called “ownership” is only by virtue of Government, i.e., law, amounting to mere “user” and use must be in acceptance with law and subordinate to the necessities of the State.” Remember, it’s not a question of “if” the economy will collapse, but “when.” And if they can’t “steal” your property with the above described scheme, they will take it via sequestration by “conservation easements” and expropriate it to international organizations, corporations…”

These scheming rats, [the bankers], also stated, “Capital must protect itself in every way, through combination and through legislation. Debts must be collected and loans and mortgages foreclosed as soon as possible. When through a process of law, the common people have lost their homes, they will be more tractable and more easily governed by the strong arm of the law applied by the central power of wealth, under control of leading financiers. People without homes will not quarrel with their leaders. This is well known among our principle men now engaged in forming an IMPERIALISM of capital to govern the world. By dividing the people we can get them to expend their energies in fighting over questions of no importance to us except as teachers of the common herd. Thus by discrete action we can secure for ourselves what has been generally planned and successfully accomplished.”

Finally, I leave you with, “We (the bankers) must proceed with caution and guard every move made, for the lower order of people are already showing signs of restless commotion. Prudence will therefore show a policy of apparently yielding to the popular will until our plans are so far consummated that we can declare our designs without fear of any organized resistance.”

So I ask you, have their plans been consummated? Have we become so indebted, our monetary system so corrupt, that there is no turning back? Or, is there a chance that you are by now so mad that you are willing to do something about it?

As Henry Ford said, “It is well that the people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.”

This is not wholly the bankers fault as it was our government which passed the Federal Reserve Act creating this gigantic leech which sucks away at our economic livelihood. It is also by the questionable ratification of the 16th Amendment that puts each and every one of us on the hook for this massive debt.

That is why I always say it was no coincidence that these two events happened at the same time in 1913. It has always been the plan of these wealthy bastards who met at Jekyll Island to create the FED to enslave us.

All I can hope now is that enough people will read this and become mad enough to learn more on their own. If not, our system will crash, it can’t go on like this forever. Don’t ask me when because I simply don’t know, but when it does come crashing down around us it is going to make the Great Depression of 1929 look like a walk in the park.

And I could go on as to how when our economy does collapse and civil unrest erupts that they will finally find use for all those FEMA camps they have been building. But that is for another article and another day…

The Naked Truth

***Authors note*** This may be long for some readers but consider this. It took me a week of researching and three days to write this. So an hour or so of reading time is inconsequential in comparison to the importance of you learning these facts.

Okay, I’ll admit it, I’ve been holding back on you. I’ve been talking about the abuse of power and the loss of rights, (which are all quite serious issues), but I have not been telling you the whole truth. I figured that it was difficult enough to get you interested in the simple fact that our government is overstepping the limits imposed upon it by the Constitution and infringing upon your rights. It was logical for me to conclude that if you wouldn’t believe, or care about that then you definitely wouldn’t believe what I’m about to tell you.

If you have been reading my articles then you have heard me use the terms shadow government and you have also heard me call our representatives puppets for men behind the scenes who really run things in this country. Well, if you can handle it, I’m about to try to explain who these people are, how you have become their slaves, and how long this battle has been going on.

Before I begin you have to understand what it means to be really and truly free. Freedom is not just the ability to do and say whatever you will. Freedom also means to be free of any control over yourself and your property. To be free what you own must be yours and yours alone. Just to give you a quick example, if you take out a loan for a car who is it that owns that car? Do you? Try not paying back the loan and see how long you retain possession of that car. The bank owns it until you pay it off. You might think you are free to do certain things, but you are not free from debt. Keep that thought in mind as we go along.

Going back to before the time of the American Revolution there has been a battle going on between those who wished to see this country free and those who wished to see it enslaved. By enslaved I don’t mean in shackles, instead I mean enslaved to bankers who profit from your labor like parasites.

If you remember anything about the causes for the American Revolution it will probably be the saying ‘taxation without representation.’ Sure, that was one of the things that upset the colonists, but it wasn’t the only thing. Jefferson listed many of the grievances in the Declaration of Independence, but it was Ben Franklin we must turn to if we want to know what the final straw was the led to the colonists seeking independence.

Prior to the initiation of hostilities between England and the colonies Franklin was in England and was asked how the colonies were able to collect the taxes required to care for the poor. Franklin answered that “We have no poor houses in the Colonies, and if we had, we would have no one to put in them, as in the Colonies there is not a single unemployed man, no poor and no vagabonds.”

The English were astounded and asked how that was possible, to which Franklin responded, “It is because, in the Colonies, we issue our own paper money. We call it Colonial Script, and we issue only enough to move all goods freely from the producers to the Consumers; and as we create our money, we control the purchasing power of money, and have no interest to pay.”

It was shortly thereafter that Parliament passed a series of Currency Acts limiting the Colonies ability to print their own money. This, according to Franklin, was the real cause of the Revolutionary War, “The refusal of King George 3rd to allow the colonies to operate an honest money system, which freed the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators, was probably the prime cause of the revolution.”
That is why, when our Founders drafted the Constitution, they implicitly made it the power of Congress to coin money. They wanted to ensure that we would never be beholden to, as Madison called them, the money changers. But even in the very beginning of our republics existence there were those who felt that the English version of things was better for America than the vision proposed by men like Jefferson and Madison. These people also felt that it was best for America to be indebted to the banks rather than have the ability to produce its own currency.

Chief among those who favored a national debt and a central bank to issue and control our currency was Alexander Hamilton, whose face now graces our ten dollar bill. It is said by some that he was an agent of the bankers, particularly the Rothschilds, but regardless of whether that the difference of opinion between him and Jefferson in regards to currency, debt, and the scope and powers of government were what led to the formation of the first political parties in America.

Before I go any further I need to make clear that when I say ‘bank’ I’m not talking about your local branch of Bank of America. These are mere holding facilities and distribution centers for the big banking houses that control the flow of money in this country, and the biggest banking house in the country, the Federal Reserve Bank. But more on that later.

As good a man as our first president was, did not heed the warnings of his Secretary of State, (Thomas Jefferson) and his Attorney General, Edmund Randolph who felt a national bank was unconstitutional, instead Washington followed the advice of Hamilton and signed into law a bill creating the First Bank of the United States. By the end of its twenty year charter our nation’s economy was in a shambles and Congress declared its intention to go back to a state issued value based currency in which the people paid no interest to the bankers.

This enraged Nathan Rothschild who demanded, “Either the application for renewal of the charter is granted, or the United States will find itself involved in a most disastrous war.” Congress still refused to renew the charter to which Rothschild declared, “Teach those impudent Americans a lesson! Bring them back to colonial status!”

At the time this was happening the Prime Minister of Britain, Spencer Perceval was opposed to war with the U.S. because most of his military was engaged in the Napoleonic War. He was concerned that if England went to war with the U.S. they might not prevail. Fortunately, or was it more than coincidence, Perceval was assassinated and replaced by Robert Banks Jenkinson who was supportive of war with the U.S. Subsequently we found ourselves engaged in the War of 1812 and although we won the war we found ourselves in so much debt that we established the Second Bank of the United States.

Who was this Nathan Rothschild, a man so impudent as to demand to the United States that it renew the charter for the national bank? Nathan Rothschild was one of the five sons of Mayer Rothschild. Mayer Rothschild was a prominent Jewish banker who spread his empire by establishing his five sons as heads of major banks in Frankfurt, Vienna, London, Naples and Paris.

I could go on and on about how the Rothschild’s influenced affairs across the globe but much of what is written about them is so secretive that it is hard to substantiate. There are but three things you really need to know about the Rothschild family. First is that unlike many banks of the time the Rothschild banks were impervious to attacks upon their wealth. The way in which their assets were held and distributed placed them beyond the reach of angry mobs and almost beyond the reach of monarchs.

Secondly, the Rothschild family were very secretive about their wealth. Today when we think of someone who is super rich the names Bill Gates or Warren Buffet come to mind. But the Rothschild’s make these guys look like paupers in comparison to the extent of their wealth.
And finally, this is the most important thing to remember about them, Mayer Amschel Rothschild declared, “Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes its laws.” Now why is that particular quote so important? Well what is a bank? Is it simply someplace you deposit your money for them to hold until you need it? How could it profit if that were the case? No, a bank is a lending agency that loans money out, at interest, to others. And who borrows and spends the most money? Why governments. So if a bank can control the money of a country, it can control the country. As long as the government remains indebted to the banks it will do their bidding. It is that simple.
So, at the time in history when America gained its independence, and its ability to coin its own money, the Rothschild family had its tentacles spread over most of Europe, controlling the money supply, and therefore the governments of, most of the European nations. If America could prosper without a central bank issuing, controlling, AND profiting from its currency, then it posed a serious threat to all the central banks across Europe.

That is why, years later during the Civil War, when Abraham Lincoln decided to print his own money, (Greenbacks), the London Times reported, “If this mischievous financial policy, which has its origin in North America, shall become endurated down to a fixture, then that Government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off debts and be without debt. It will have all the money necessary to carry on its commerce, It will become prosperous without precedent in the history of the world. The brains, and wealth of all countries will go to North America. That country must be destroyed or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe.”

There you have it, their end game, to destroy us economically so as to keep us perpetually in debt so that they can profit from our suffering. James Madison warned us that “History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling the money and its issuance.”

America had been brought to heel once again and had its Second Bank of the United States. But then along comes Andrew Jackson, who is the ONLY president in our nation’s history to completely pay off its national debt. Jackson knew the dangers of being enslaved to banks and it was he who called them a den of vipers.

Jackson was successful in defeating the central banks, but our nation was not without its monetary problems in the subsequent period free from a National Bank. However, public mistrust over central banks, and banks in general. made it a tough sell for the re-establishment of any kind of banking institution to create and control our nation’s monetary supply. That is until 1913.

Before I continue, have you ever heard of the Hegelian Dialect? It can be described in many ways, but the description I have found works best is that if you want to accomplish something that the people are generally against you have to find a way to force them into accepting it willingly. So what you do is you create a crisis of some kind. When the people become panicked enough they will demand that something be done to alleviate the crisis. That is when you offer your proposal, one which they would never have accepted were it not for the crisis. Then they willingly accept what you offer because it solves the problem.

The Hegelian Dialect, if you look at things, can be applied to almost anything that is going on around you today. They want to pass stricter gun control laws, create more instances, or at least maximize the coverage of violent shootings so that people fear guns. Then they will accept stricter gun laws. You want to take a nation to war, create fear about a supposed boogie man; be it Saddam Hussein and WMD’s in Iraq or ISIS right now in Syria. Create enough fear the people will support a war anywhere.

Well prior to 1913 the bankers had no control over our nation’s monetary supply. They had to find a way back in so they could once again profit from the debt they created. Enter their use of the Hegelian Dialect. In 1907 Paul Warburg published an article in the NY Times that cautioned Americans to reinstate a central bank to ward off any bank runs, and subsequent crashes of our financial system. This placed the seed of an idea into the minds of the American people. They were yet loathe to do so, but the idea had been planted. Now all they needed was a crisis to prove that they were right, America needed a central bank to stabilize its currency.

Soon enough they got it. When the panic of 1907 came along fueled by a short selling scheme on the stock of United Copper the stock market went into turmoil. Investment brokers friendly to J.P. Morgan and Paul Warburg began yanking their money out of Wall Street causing stock prices to drop almost 50%. Enter J.P. Morgan who, along with a few friends, offered to infuse the system with their own private funds to stabilize the situation. But the damage had been done, and it had all been planned beforehand. The people were now frightened and demanding something be done. Hence, the Creature from Jekyll Island.

In the wake of the panic of 1907 Congress established a commission to determine a means to prevent further such economic crises. At the head of this commission was one Nelson Aldrich, who coincidentally was also friends with Morgan and Warburg. Aldrich toured Europe for almost two years studying their central banking systems, spending millions in the process, and yet never filed a report of his findings.

It wasn’t until 1910 that Aldrich gathered together his little coterie of scoundrels and held a conference at Jekyll Island. Among those who attended this meeting were; Abraham Piatt Andrew, Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Treasury; Frank Vanderlip, president of the National City Bank of New York who represented the Rockefellers; Paul Warburg, whose family also represented the Rothschilds in Europe and who had just 3 years prior called for another central bank in America; Benjamin Strong and Henry Davidson of J.P. Morgan Company along with Charles Norton the head of Morgan’s First National Bank of New York. These powerful men represented almost a quarter of the wealth of the entire planet, and they all gathered together to formulate a plan for America.

What they came up with was the blueprint for the Federal Reserve System. Knowing that the people still harbored distrust over central banks they called it the Federal Reserve to give people the impression that it was government owned and operated, but it would be anything but that. The Federal Reserve may have its Chairman selected by the President, but that is as close to being a federal institution as it gets.
When Congress passed the Federal Reserve Act it created another central bank that not only produced our nation’s currency, but also regulated its value by the amount of currency it introduces into the economy and by the raising and lowering of interest rates.

To ensure its passage the Federal Reserve Act was voted upon when many of the members of Congress were away from our nation’s capital during the Christmas recess. Even so it was not without opposition. Congressman Charles A. Lindbergh Sr. stated, “This [Federal Reserve Act] establishes the most gigantic trust on earth. When the President [Wilson] signs this bill, the invisible government of the monetary power will be legalized…the worst legislative crime of the ages is perpetrated by this banking and currency bill.”

Years after signing the bill, President Wilson would regret his decision and state, “I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.”

A decade after its passage Congressman Louis T. McFadden would argue, “The Federal Reserve banks are one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever seen. There is not a man within the sound of my voice who does not know that this nation is run by the International bankers.”

Although it may sound like the FED has all this money sitting around that they loan out, they have no reserves, they create money out of thin air; “When you or I write a check there must be sufficient funds in our account to cover the check, but when the Federal Reserve writes a check there is no bank deposit on which that check is drawn. When the Federal Reserve writes a check, it is creating money.” This from the Boston Federal Reserve Bank.

Why is this such a crime? Well listen to the words of Sir Josiah Stamp, who was director of England’s central bank for years, “Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin. The Bankers own the earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create deposits, and with the flick of the pen they will create enough deposits to buy it back again. However, take it away from them, and all the great fortunes like mine will disappear and they ought to disappear, for this would be a happier and better world to live in. But, if you wish to remain the slaves of Bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create deposits.”

Not only did they create a banking monstrosity that is able to depreciate the value of the money in your wallet but they also decided to put the people of this country on the hook for the money loaned to our government by this evil entity. During the same year the Federal Reserve Act was signed into law the Constitution of the United States was amended to allow for the government to tax your earnings to pay for its services and pay off the national debt. Prior to the ratification of the 16th Amendment in 1913 your income was not taxable, 100% of it was yours to keep.

Now, not only do they tax your earnings, the value of your money continues to decrease, meaning that it takes more of these Federal Reserve Notes to buy things. It is not that the price of goods has gone up so much as it is the spending power of the money you earn has gone down. That is the true nature of inflation. They could always print more money and pay you more, but all that will do is cause the value of that money to go down even further, requiring that you pay more of it for the same goods. That is inflation.

What is the consequence of the money you earn not being enough to buy the things you desire? You borrow. The more debt you own the more the banks profit from your suffering. Its’ not just private debt that these people worry about, it is government debt as well. Your personal debt only ensures that you remain in servitude to them to pay your bills, but it is government debt where they hit the jackpot. And what is the one thing governments do that cost the most? Simple, go to war. If you took the time to research our nation’s history you will find that after every war our country was deeply in debt.

Every so often you see a glimmer of the truth in Hollywood movies. In the film the International there is one such moment. The character Umberto Calvini is explaining to Clive Owens and Naomi Watts the nature of banking. In the film he states, “The IBBC is a bank. Their objective isn’t to control the conflict, it’s to control the debt that the conflict produces. You see, the real value of a conflict, the true value, is in the debt that it creates. You control the debt, you control everything. You find this upsetting, yes? But this is the very essence of the banking industry, to make us all, whether we be nations or individuals, slaves to debt.”

Smedley D. Butler was a Major General in the United States Marines who is famous for writing a book describing how war is a racket. From it I quote, “I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street. I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of Brown Brothers in 1902-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested. Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints.”

If you look beyond what you are taught in history about the wars this country has undergone since the passage of the Federal Reserve Act you might find yourself questioning the justification for the United States becoming involved in any of them.

Prior to World War I Germany was becoming an economic power that threatened the economic stability of Europe, particularly England. This jeopardized the Bank of England. When the National Socialists, (NAZI’s) came into power the first thing they did was to issue their own currency, not that printed by a central bank. Muammar Gaddafi threatened to sell oil to whomever would buy it not using U.S. dollars and threatened the stability of the dollar as a global economy.

Even during our own Civil War the banking interests of Europe supported the Confederates in the hope that they would defeat the North and put an end to Lincoln issuing his greenbacks. Lincoln himself said, “The money powers prey upon the nation in times of peace and conspire against it in times of adversity. The banking powers are more despotic than a monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, more selfish than bureaucracy. They denounce as public enemies all who question their methods or throw light upon their crimes. I have two great enemies, the Southern Army in front of me and the bankers in the rear. Of the two, the one at my rear is my greatest foe. [As a most undesirable consequence of the war...] Corporations have been enthroned, and an era of corruption in high places will follow. The money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until the wealth is aggregated in the hands of a few, and the Republic is destroyed.”

Now I’m not saying these are the only reasons we have gone to war, but they certainly are worth considering when it comes to our current discussion.

Unfortunately this was not the extent of the damage done to our Republic. These bankers had lost two opportunities to control a great nation’s monetary system, they weren’t about to lose it again. For them to retain control over our country via their control over our economy they must also control the government and the information the people are told about what is happening around them.

United States Congressman Oscar Calloway, (D) from Texas told us how they gained control over the news we are being told, “In March, 1915, the J.P. Morgan interests, the steel, shipbuilding, and powder interest, and their subsidiary organizations, got together 12 men high up in the newspaper world and employed them to select the most influential newspapers in the United States and sufficient number of them to control generally the policy of the daily press. … They found it was only necessary to purchase the control of 25 of the greatest papers. An agreement was reached; the policy of the papers was bought, to be paid for by the month; an editor was furnished for each paper to properly supervise and edit information regarding the questions of preparedness, militarism, financial policies, and other things of national and international nature considered vital to the interests of the purchasers.”

I have talked about this before in prior articles, I only show this quote to provide you with the name J.P. Morgan again to show that these people are all working together in a systematic plan to completely control this country. How they achieved control over our government is a bit more lengthy a discussion.

Up until this point I have reserved my discussion to the economic control over our country. Yet these people also control our government as well. You may think that since we still have an election process and that you can go to the polls and cast a vote for your choice of candidates that we have a free election as well. I’m here to tell you that isn’t so. They control that as well. Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter warned us, “The real rulers in Washington are invisible and exercise power from behind the scenes.” In 1954 Senator William Jenner declared, “Outwardly we have a Constitutional government. We have operating within our government and political system, another body representing another form of government, a bureaucratic elite which believes our Constitution is outmoded.”

The first attempt at control over us came at the end of World War One with the failed League of Nations which would exercise dominion over all sovereign member nations. When the bankers saw that America would not go for such a blatant attempt to subvert America’s sovereignty they tried something different, a more subtler approach.

It was suggested that a set of twin think tanks, groups who on the surface appear only to offer opinions on matters of global importance, be established, one in Britain and one in America. The one in Britain is called The Royal Institute of International Affairs and the one in the U.S. is called the Council on Foreign Relations, or CFR for short.

So, in July of 1921 the CFR came into being with some of its founding members being one J.P. Morgan, John Rockefeller, and Paul Warburg. Hmm, do those names sound vaguely familiar to you? Remember what Oscar Calloway said about how they gained control of the media, well the CFR was their modus operandi for gaining control of our government as well.

How they control our system is simple and explained by author Jonathan Vankin, “Since its founding… the CFR has been the preeminent intermediary between the world of high finance, big oil, corporate elitism, and the U.S. government. Its members slide smoothly into cabinet-level jobs in Republican and Democratic administrations. The policies promulgated in its quarterly journal, Foreign Affairs, become U.S. government policy.”

Just to give you a short list of some of these CFR members who are, or have been, in key positions in our government, here are a few names you may be familiar with: Timothy Geithner, Alan Greenspan, Henry Kissinger, Condoleeza Rice, Hillary Clinton, Supreme Court Justices Bader-Ginsberg and Breyer, George Soros, Michael Bloomberg, Dick Cheney. And getting back to what Oscar Calloway said about the media being controlled, the CFR also has members in key positions in the media as well. Katie Couric, Bill Moyers, Diane Sawyer, and Tom Brokaw are among a few of the news people we rely upon to tell us the truth who are CFR members.

These people infiltrate everything and exert their influence upon us through their members following the decisions they make, which we have no say in. They have key people in our higher education who dictate curriculum. They have people in the media who decide what slant on the news we get. They have people in both the Republican and Democrat party’s who decide which candidates get party support. They carefully select only the candidates who will remain loyal to their agenda, and what is their agenda?

Their agenda is nothing less than global control. They feel that we are too stupid to manage our own lives so they want to do it for us. They want to control us economically and legislatively via their representatives in our government. All they need us for is to keep the machinery running and to continue to remain in debt, feeding them money via the interest we pay upon that debt.

David Rockefeller said as much in the following quote, “For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as “internationalists” and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”

In 1934 these people produced a civil servants book entitled ‘The Organizer’ wherein they said, “Capital must protect itself in every way…Debts must be collected and loans and mortgages foreclosed upon as soon as possible. When through a process of law the common people have lost their homes, they will be more tractable and more easily governed by the strong arm of the law applied by the central power of leading financiers. People without homes will not quarrel with their leaders. This is well known among our principal men now engaged in forming and imperialism of capitalism to govern the world. By dividing the people we can get them to expend their energies in fighting over questions of no importance to us except as teachers of the common herd.” That’s all we are to them, a herd of animals to be controlled and manipulated.

One more quote on their goal and I’ll close up. Carroll Quigley was Bill Clintons mentor and he once wrote, “The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than 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. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world’s central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank…sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world.”

So when I talk about freedom I am not only talking about your ability to freely exercise your God-given rights, but also freedom from debt to the bankers to whom you are slaves. You can go on believing that you are free, that you have a say in how your government runs, but if you want to learn the truth you are going to have to shed that illusion and begin investigating the truth. It is there, if you are willing to look for it.

If not you can continue to believe in the lie you are being told and wait until it all comes crashing down around you. And crashing down it will come. We cannot go on as a country continuing to amass such an enormous national debt, the whole while printing out more and more money to keep the economy afloat. At some point it has to crash, as all financial bubbles in the past have crashed. It’s only a matter of time as to when. Just think of having to pay $100 for a loaf of bread, meat, gas, and other things we now take for granted will be beyond our reach when the money we carry around becomes as worthless as toilet paper.

It happened in Germany during the Weimer Republic when the Mark became useless, and it happened once in America during the Great Depression, (which coincidentally happened after the creation of the Federal Reserve which was supposed to prevent such things). So don’t fool yourself into thinking all is hunky dory and that your money will retain its value forever. It won’t.

So you go ahead arguing about the things typically associated with being either conservative or liberal, while the whole time these issues are of no importance to those who really run things in this country. If you want to save our Republic you are going to have to face one fact, and one fact alone; that it is no longer ours, it is theirs. As former New York Mayor John Hylan stated in 1922, “The real menace of our Republic is the invisible government which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities states and nation. At the head is a small group of banking houses generally referred to as ‘international bankers.’ This little coterie… run our government for their own selfish ends. It operates under cover of a self-created screen…[and] seizes…our executive officers… legislative bodies… schools… courts… newspapers and every agency created for the public protection.”

There you have it, the whole truth, the truth I have not been telling you. Now it’s up to you to either decide whether you are going to research what I said and learn that I have not been lying to you or go back to believing the lies you are being told. Or as Morpheus so eloquently told Neo in The Matrix, “You take the blue pill―the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill―you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.”

Just keep this in mind, Henry Ford, the automaker, once said, “It is well that the people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.”
Now why would he say that unless what was going on was a danger to our republic and to you?

Think about these things, I know it is a lot of information but it is vital to our survival as a free country that you do so.
