Karl Marx, co-author of the Communist Manifesto, once said “The oppressed are allowed once every few years to decide which particular representatives of the oppressing class are to represent and repress them.” By beginning this article with a quote from one of the founders of communism I already know that I will lose credibility among many who may otherwise have continued to read this article. That is unfortunate because bad people, or people whose views you disagree with, still occasionally get things right.
From the way I see things Marx could very well have been talking about the United States right here and now. People think that simply because they can go to the polls every few years and cast a ballot for their choice of candidates that they are making a difference. Most of those that do bother to vote go back to their lives feeling good about themselves, believing that they are actively participating in the democratic process of choosing the candidates that they believe will best serve them. They couldn’t be further from the truth.
During election cycles so much time, effort, and money is spent on the different candidates, all of whom appear to be campaigning on ideologies that, at first glance, give us the illusion that they hold distinctly differing views on the issues which matter to the people. Percentage wise, very few people will take the time to really dig into a candidates record, or even consider whether the promises they are making while campaigning are even amongst the powers they will hold should they be elected. When it comes to voting for which candidate will do what is best for the country, or the state, we may as well be voting for them based upon what their favorite color or football team is.
While they need our votes to get elected, that is about as far as their concern for us goes. Once elected they serve other masters, and our wishes, and the law, is of no concern to them unless it furthers the agenda of those whom they really serve.
If I haven’t lost most my readers with my quote from Karl Marx, I’m certain that what I’m about to say will lose them and a good many more. The fact is that whether you cast your vote for a Republican or a Democrat, you are wasting your vote because they all owe their allegiance to people who sit behind the scenes and really run things in this country.
Sure there ARE differences between the two political parties, and sure some of those differences may affect your lives adversely. But when it comes to certain things, both parties owe their allegiance to a select group of individuals who, for lack of a better definition, are the puppet masters who pull their strings and make them dance.
The problem is that when people like me mention a shadow government most people tune us out as a bunch of crazy conspiracy theorists. Author Dresden James once said, “A truth’s initial commotion is directly proportional to how deeply the lie was believed. It wasn’t the world being round that agitated people, but that the world wasn’t flat. When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses over generations, the truth will seem utterly preposterous and its speaker a raving lunatic.”
So when I talk about shadow governments and conspiracy theories, you may think that I am crazy, but that is only because you have not been told the truth. But the truth is available if you only cared to look for it. But if you honestly think the media, or your elected officials are going to come out and tell you that they are lying to you, then you are crazier than I am.
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” – Joseph Goebbels, German Minister of Propaganda
You think you live in a free country with a free media that provides you will all the news you need to make intelligent, informed decisions. To put it in as simple terms as possible, consider what Albert Einstein once said, “The ruling class has the schools and press under its thumb. This enables it to sway the emotions of the masses.”
The easiest way to control a people is by limiting the knowledge they have access to. This is best done by limiting what they are taught in school, and by limiting, and by controlling or fabricating the news they receive. I sit there and watch the news and some of the stuff they report on is hardly newsworthy. And when they do cover a story that is worthy of their time they gloss over it or report with such an obvious bias that I often wonder whether they are journalists or ministers of propaganda as was Joseph Goebbels. If you want the truth you are going to have to exert a little initiative and seek it yourself. And that’s why so few do it, because it too closely resembles work.
Like I said, if you rely upon the news media to keep you truly informed, you’re wasting your time as they work for the same people who control our government and they aren’t going to tell you anything that may be harmful to whatever plans they have for you. A few quotes ought to be enough to prove my point.
In 1917 a United States Congressman stood before the House of Representatives and told them “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.”
Two years later, John Swinton, head of the editorial staff at the New York Times, delivered a speech in which he said, “There is no such thing as a free press. You know it and I know it. There is not one of you who would dare to write his honest opinion. The business of the journalist is to destroy truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of Mammon, and to sell himself, his country, and his race, for his daily bread. We are tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are jumping jacks; they pull our strings, we dance; our talents, our possibilities, and our lives are the property of these men. We are intellectual prostitutes.”
Then in 1991, before a conference in Evian France, David Rockefeller thanked the media for NOT reporting on things they learned while attending meetings of the Bilderberg Group, “We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine, and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost 40 years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world, if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The super-national sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.”
These are their words, I’m not making this stuff up. They control the media, and if you want the truth, YOU are going to have to stop listening to them and get up off your ass and go out and look for it yourself. But then again, as one of my co-workers is so fond of telling me, “Football is more important than all this political bullshit.”
Who are these people that I call the shadow government? I could write a book about them if I wanted, but seeing as how I hear complaints about the length of some of my articles, I’ll try to keep it simple. They are basically a group of people, amongst them the Rothschild Family, who seek total control and dominion over the entire planet. While they don’t sit back and make each and every decision that is made, it is along a general agenda that the course of our nation is following, and they are the authors of that agenda.
The people you vote for are all puppets to these people, they have been carefully vetted and have proven that they will follow the script, so to speak. These people care very little for the laws passed which affect our day to day lives. What they do care for are the laws which allow our government to control us, and more importantly, allows them to control our financial institutions. As Mayer Amschel Rothschild said, “Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes the laws.”
Sir Josiah Stamp, former President of the Bank of England, (their version of our Federal Reserve Bank), once said, “Bankers own the earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create money and control credit, and with a flick of a pen they will create enough to buy it back.”
In the years following the passage of the Federal Reserve Act, certain prominent people were attempting to warn the people of the fraud that had been perpetrated against them. Congressman Lewis T. McFadden said, “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.”
Henry Ford, founder of Ford Motor Company, 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.” Charles Lindbergh, also a U.S. Congressman, would say, “From now on, depressions will be scientifically created.”
Even President Woodrow Wilson, who signed the Federal Reserve Act into law, later regretted having done so, “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 world, no longer a Government of free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of small group of dominant men.”
This fight has been going on since before we, as a nation, gained our independence from Britain. After Benjamin Franklin visited England, (prior to the War for Independence), he was asked how America could be such a prosperous country. He explained that they create their own money and that there is no interest to pay and that money is created only in sufficient amounts to ensure commerce runs smoothly.
This worried the bankers of England, who said, “If this mischievous financial policy which has its origin in North America shall become endurated down to a fixture, then that Government will furnish it’s own money without cost. It will pay off its debts and be without debt. It will have all the currency 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 monarch on the globe.”
That is why our Founders put it in our Constitution that Congress alone has the right to coin money and to regulate its value. Both Madison and Jefferson warned of the powers of the banks, or as Madison called them, the money changers. Madison said, “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 money and its issuance.”
Years later Andrew Jackson would proclaim war against the central bank, calling them a den of vipers and thieves. Even Abraham Lincoln, who, in my opinion, did so much damage to States Rights, feared the bankers. Lincoln declared, “The money power preys upon the nation in times of peace, and conspires against it in times of adversity. It is more despotic than monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, more selfish than bureaucracy. It denounces, as public enemies, all who question its methods or throw light upon its crimes. I have two great enemies, the Southern Army in front of me, and the financial institutions in the rear. Of the two, the one in my rear is my greatest foe.”
Yet, as so often happens, Americans do not learn from history. In 1913 the Federal Reserve Act was passed, and we once again found ourselves under the influence of privately owned and operated banks. And as opposition began to be heard, the bankers wrote something that most people have never heard of, the Bankers Manifest of 1934.
This manifesto begins by saying, “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. Organizations in the United States should be carefully watched by our trusted men, and we must take immediate steps to control these organizations in our interest or disrupt them.”
Doesn’t that worry you in the slightest, the thought that bankers are the ones who control our government and that our votes mean absolutely nothing because we are voting for puppets carefully chosen by them?
But I can still hear your thoughts. You’re saying, but Neal, this can’t all be true. Well, let’s see what else this Bankers Manifesto had to say. It also declares that, “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.”
Read those last two sentences again, very carefully. You see, that’s exactly what is happening in America today. We fight over trivial issues when it comes to choosing who we elect to office, but that is exactly what they want, to keep us divided so we can’t unite and fight the common enemy, their stranglehold on our government and our lives.
Bet you didn’t know it but since the Federal Reserve was created, the dollar has lost more than 90% of its purchasing power.
Two weeks before his assassination, President James Garfield stated, “Whoever controls the volume of money in our country is absolute master of all industry and commerce, and when you realize that the entire system is very easily controlled, one way or another, by a few powerful men at the top, you will not have to be told how periods of inflation and depression originate.”
You can choose to believe all this, or not. You can choose to try to learn more or go back to your self chosen ignorance. That is entirely up to you. Just let me leave you with two final quotes. The first is from Friedrich von Hayek, “Liberty not only means that the individual has both the opportunity and the burden of choice; it also means that he must bear the consequences of his actions… Liberty and responsibility are inseparable.”
The next comes from science fiction author Robert Heinlein, “The America of my time line is a laboratory example of what can happen to democracies, what has eventually happened to all perfect democracies throughout all histories. A perfect democracy, a ‘warm body’ democracy in which every adult may vote and all votes count equally, has no internal feedback for self-correction. It depends solely on the wisdom and self-restraint of citizens… which is opposed by the folly and lack of self-restraint of other citizens. What is supposed to happen in a democracy is that each sovereign citizen will always vote in the public interest for the safety and welfare of all. But what does happen is that he votes his own self-interest as he sees it… which for the majority translates as ‘Bread and Circuses.’
‘Bread and Circuses’ is the cancer of democracy, the fatal disease for which there is no cure. Democracy often works beautifully at first. But once a state extends the franchise to every warm body, be he producer or parasite, that day marks the beginning of the end of the state. For when the plebs discover that they can vote themselves bread and circuses without limit and that the productive members of the body politic cannot stop them, they will do so, until the state bleeds to death, or in its weakened condition the state succumbs to an invader—the barbarians enter Rome.”
All I know is that for the past fifteen some odd years I have been studying, learning these things, and trying to pass the knowledge I have gained on to you. I can only judge how effective I’ve been by the responses I get. To be quite honest, I’m tired of doing your research for you, of having to spoon feed you the information while it ends up going in one ear and out the other.
You may not believe it, but I really do have other things I’d rather be doing than playing teacher to an unappreciative class. So you go ahead, continue to believe in your two party system, keep believing that your vote makes a difference, keep thinking that the lesser of two evils is better than nothing.
You know, if the lesser of two evils was likened to walking towards a cliff, you may only take a half step sometimes, while others you take two or three. But EVENTUALLY you WILL find yourself and the ledge and one more step means you will topple to your death.
So go ahead, go back to your lives and disregard things that really matter. I’m sure that when the shit hits the fan your favorite football player or reality TV star will take care of you and your family. So there’s absolutely nothing at all for you to worry about.
Have a wonderful life.
