*Authors Note: This will be my last article for awhile. I am going to begin research on a major project and won’t have time to write until I am done. So enjoy this in the meantime.*
Sometimes it is all I can do to refrain from laughing at those who believe that voting for someone, and this includes Donald Trump, is going to make any major difference in how corrupt our government has become. I don’t know what goes on inside Trump’s head, so he may have the best of intentions for this country. Then again he may have sought the presidency because that is only position left to him to satisfy his tremendous ego.
I hear a lot of talk from those on the right about the hypocrisy of those on the left; the old two party paradigm at work. Yet those on the right who criticize those on the left often don’t have the courage to turn that keen observatory power inward and see the hypocrisy of their so-called conservative stance.
Let’s just say, for the sake of argument, that conservatism is a strict adherence to the Constitution; then how conservative are the values and beliefs of the Republican Party? Let’s imagine that you are standing with your back to the Constitution and you begin taking steps forward. Does it matter if your right leg is taking short steps while your left leg is taking longer strides? You’re still moving away from the Constitution. Sure, you may consider yourselves conservative compared to the positions held by those on the left, but in comparison to the principles outlined by the Constitution you are anything but conservative.
Let’s just say Trump is the right man at the right time to stop the expansion of governmental power and the corruption within it; (and this is a big assumption by the way). What next? Are you conservatives gonna sit back and just enjoy your victory then wait for the next presidential election and hope that someone like Trump comes along to support? Are you gonna fall back and support whomever the GOP provides if there is no one like Trump? If your argument is that Trump is just the first step in returning to true conservative values; what are you gonna do in 4 or 8 years when Trump is no longer eligible to serve as president? What’s your game plan, or are you thinking that far down the line?
I didn’t vote for Trump; in fact I didn’t vote for anyone for the position of president. But he did campaign on one issue that I was keenly interested in; draining the swamp of corruption. The thing is that I don’t think Mr Trump’s view on what constitutes corruption and mine quite match up.
You may not even be aware of it, but this is one of those moments in writing when I am offered two different paths to follow. One pathway leads to a discussion of the corruption of the founding principles of this country, while the other leads to a discussion of the actual physical corruption inside our government; the people who are exerting influence behind the scenes and who really run our country.
It is this second pathway that I would like to discuss at this time.
A lot of people scoff at the idea of the so-called shadow government; a group of men who supposedly sit behind the scenes and actually control our government. I don’t know; is it because to believe in something so outlandish is to lose all faith in the system? Is it because to admit that something like that actually exists is to admit that for all these years you have been duped? The thing is, it is that very skepticism that protects them. When a majority of the people are unwilling to accept that they exist it leaves them free to focus all their attention on achieving their goals.
When one mentions corruption in our nation’s capital the people often assume that they are talking about lobbyists and special interest groups. While that is one form that corruption may take; it is not the only form. The corruption that I speak of is more like a cancer that has worked its way into every facet of society; not simply government. It is more like those with a common mindset working together to achieve a common goal.
Let me ask you a simple question; How do you get your information about politics and government? When you are young you are taught in schools about government by your civics teachers, and when you grow up you get your information from the various news sources, (even though as of late they have lost a great deal of credibility).
What if someone were to gain control of the flow of information which is provided to you? What if they were able to decide what news you were given, and what bias it would take? What if these same people were able to decide the curriculum taught in our schools? Don’t you think that it might be possible to control your decision making process; or at least cause you to reject any mention of such a conspiracy theory about their existence?
Did you know that 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.” It has been said that Vladimir Lenin once said, “Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.” Can you imagine the damage that could be done to a country’s founding principles if one or two generations were taught that our Constitution is a living document; subject to interpretation and constant revision? Once that idea took hold it would become next to impossible to undo. Once those generations obtained positions within academia and the news media the idea would become self-perpetuating.
Then imagine what would happen if people holding those beliefs got into positions of power within government itself. Can you not see how this could not be likened unto a cancer that had been allowed to metastasize to the point the damage to our founding principles was terminal?
If you can picture that scenario, then imagine the evil that would purposefully cause such a thing to happen. You see that is where Mr Trump and I differ on what our views of corruption are. I truly believe he considers the influence wielded by special interests and lobbyists as corruption, while I believe corruption to be an intentional betrayal of our founding principles by those within positions high up in the government, academia and the news media; working in concert to subvert the sovereignty of the United States and lead us into a system of one world governance.
If I were to make a simple wager I’d bet that the name Carroll Quigley does not sound familiar to most people. Yet Quigley was a Georgetown Professor whose views on government greatly influenced on William Jefferson Clinton. He is also the author of a book entitled Tragedy and Hope. Quigley has made many statements about the very subject I am currently attempting to convince you is real. For instance, Quigley writes, “The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can ‘throw the rascals out’ at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy.” Does that not sound like the very same thing I have been saying about how it makes no difference which party is in power; that government will continue on with business as usual?
Then there is this, another quote from Quigley, “For the first time in its history, Western Civilization is in danger of being destroyed internally by a corrupt, criminal ruling cabal which is centered around the Rockefeller interests, which include elements from the Morgan, Brown, Rothschild, Du Pont, Harriman, Kuhn-Loeb, and other groupings as well. This junta took control of the political, financial, and cultural life of America in the first two decades of the twentieth century.”
I find it a bit too coincidental that in 1913 two things happened almost simultaneously; the Federal Reserve Act was passed and the 16th Amendment was ratified. One created a giant banking trust empowered with establishing our monetary policy and loaning money to our government, while the other enslaved the people to the debt created via a direct tax upon their income.
One really ought to do a cursory examination of the events that transpired at Jekyll Island prior to the writing of the Federal Reserve Act. See who was in attendance at that secret meeting which led to the creation of the FED. That, in and of itself, ought to give you an idea of who is behind the type of corruption that I’m talking about.
Then in 1917 Congressman Oscar Calloway stood on the floor of Congress and spoke of another event that transpired just a few short years later, “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.” (My emphasis)
So now we have a group of powerful banking interests who not only control our nation’s monetary supply, they also control the news we are being provided. Doesn’t that sound just a wee bit suspicious to you?
It is said that Mayor Amschel Rothschild once said, “Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes its laws.” If you control the money supply of a country you control everything; it’s that simple. If you can raise and lower interest rates to control the debt you control, not only the lives of the average people, but the government of a country itself.
Yet for these bankers to profit there must be a need for credit; for the borrowing of money from the institutions they own. What better ways to create debt than by Ponzi Schemes such as Social Security and endless war?
Sometimes we find the truth in the strangest of places. Yet often we find it in films where they display the truth boldly, only to label it as fiction. For instance, in the Clive Owens Naomi Watts film the International there is a scene when a weapons manufacturer, Umberto Calvini, is explaining to Owens and Watts the reason why a bank would be interested in the sale of Silkworm Missiles, “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.”
Look at the debt held by most Americans. They take out loans to buy their homes, their vehicles and use credit cards to buy things their pay does not allow them to purchase. Our government spends well beyond the revenue it takes in; with our debt being so high it may reach $20 trillion before I finish this article.
Here are a couple interesting facts about that debt that you may not have known. The average revenue per taxpayer into our government coffers is around $10,000. That’s just average, not how much each of us pays in taxes. Yet the average amount each of us would have to pay if the debt were called in at this very moment is over $60,000. The deficit; the amount our government spends which exceeds the money coming into the treasury is $590 billion. The amount owed to unfunded liabilities; things such as future payments of Social Security and Medicare benefits, is an astronomical $104 trillion. If our government hopes to pay those future benefits to those who have paid into the system and hope to recover their entitlements it will have to borrow the money to do so.
And who benefits from all this; the banks that loan us the money of course. And yet people have the sheer audacity to say that they are free simply because they can choose between watching an episode of the Walking Dead, an episode of Dancing With the Stars, or a major league sporting event. They say they are free because they are able to go to the polls every couple of years and choose the puppet who will be their representative in government.
Like I said, it is all I can do not to laugh at people sometimes.
I also said that movies often offer us a glimpse into reality; if only our minds are receptive to the hints and innuendos they provide. One such film was the movie Captain America: The Winter Soldier. While many watched it for the action sequences, or just because Scarlett Johansson is so damned sexy, I sat back with my jaw hanging halfway to the ground because it explained how groups such as the Council on Foreign Relations and the Bilderberg Group have infiltrated our government and caused us to willingly surrender our freedoms.
Honestly, you had to have been in a coma if you couldn’t see the parallel between groups like the CFR and Bilderberg Group and that of Hydra and how it had infiltrated SHIELD and caused people to surrender their freedom in the face of an ever increasing number of threats.
Like I said in a recent article, the facts are all there but it is like assembling a jigsaw puzzle; unless you start putting the pieces together you will never see the full picture. I have only scratched the surface of the conspiracy that has been going on behind the scenes since the beginning of the 20th Century; if not earlier.
Just to be a sport though, here are a few random quotes from various people throughout the past century who have given us glimpses behind the curtain to the men and forces aligned against us. Let’s see if you can put together a clearer picture of what has actually happened and why your votes no longer matter.
-The drive of the Rockefellers and their allies is to create a one-world government combining supercapitalism and Communism under the same tent, all under their control…. Do I mean conspiracy? Yes I do. I am convinced there is such a plot, international in scope, generations old in planning, and incredibly evil in intent. (Congressman Larry P. McDonald)
-In the next century, nations as we know it will be obsolete; all states will recognize a single, global authority. National sovereignty wasn’t such a great idea after all.” (Strobe Talbot, President Clinton’s Deputy Secretary of State, as quoted in Time, July 20th, l992)
-Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the Field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.” (Former President Woodrow Wilson; The New Freedom, 1913)
-The real menace of our republic is this invisible government which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy length over city, state and nation. Like the octopus of real life, it operates under cover of a self created screen….At the head of this octopus are the Rockefeller Standard Oil interests and a small group of powerful banking houses generally referred to as international bankers. The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both political parties. (New York City Mayor John Hylan, 1922)
-For a long time I felt that FDR had developed many thoughts and ideas that were his own to benefit this country, the United States. But, he didn’t. Most of his thoughts, his political ammunition, as it were, were carefully manufactured for him in advanced by the Council on Foreign Relations-One World Money group. Brilliantly, with great gusto, like a fine piece of artillery, he exploded that prepared “ammunition” in the middle of an unsuspecting target, the American people, and thus paid off and returned his internationalist political support. (Curtis Dall, FDR’s son-in-law as quoted in his book, My Exploited Father-in-Law)
-The depression was the calculated ‘shearing’ of the public by the World Money powers, triggered by the planned sudden shortage of supply of call money in the New York money market….The One World Government leaders and their ever close bankers have now acquired full control of the money and credit machinery of the U.S. via the creation of the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank (Curtis Dall again)
-The real rulers in Washington are invisible, and exercise power from behind the scenes. (Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter, 1952)
-Today the path of total dictatorship in the United States can be laid by strictly legal means, unseen and unheard by the Congress, the President, or the people. 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. (Senator William Jenner, 1954)
-The Trilateral Commission is intended to be the vehicle for multinational consolidation of the commercial and banking interests by seizing control of the political government of the United States. The Trilateral Commission represents a skillful, coordinated effort to seize control and consolidate the four centers of power political, monetary, intellectual and ecclesiastical. What the Trilateral Commission intends is to create a worldwide economic power superior to the political governments of the nationstates involved. As managers and creators of the system ,they will rule the future. (Senator Barry Goldwater from his book With No Apologies, 1964)
-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 private meetings and conferences. The apex of the system was the Bank for International Settlements in Basle, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the worlds’ central banks which were themselves private corporations. The growth of financial capitalism made possible a centralization of world economic control and use of this power for the direct benefit of financiers and the indirect injury of all other economic groups. (Carroll Quigley, Tragedy and Hope, 1966)
-The Council on Foreign Relations is “the establishment.” Not only does it have influence and power in key decision-making positions at the highest levels of government to apply pressure from above, but it also announces and uses individuals and groups to bring pressure from below, to justify the high level decisions for converting the U.S. from a sovereign Constitutional Republic into a servile member state of a one-world dictatorship. (Former Congressman John Rarick, 1971)
-The most powerful clique in these (CFR) groups have one objective in common: they want to bring about the surrender of the sovereignty and the national independence of the U.S. They want to end national boundaries and racial and ethnic loyalties supposedly to increase business and ensure world peace. What they strive for would inevitably lead to dictatorship and loss of freedoms by the people. The CFR was founded for “the purpose of promoting disarmament and submergence of U.S. sovereignty and national independence into an all-powerful one-world government. (Harpers Magazine, July 1958)
-We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes. (John Swinton, Chief of Staff, New York Times, 1880)
And finally, the following from Lysander Spooner, “The Rothschilds, and that class of money-lenders of whom they are the representatives and agents – men who never think of lending a shilling to their next-door neighbors, for purposes of honest industry, unless upon the most ample security, and at the highest rate of interest – stand ready, at all times, to lend money in unlimited amounts to those robbers and murderers, who call themselves governments, to be expended in shooting down those who do not submit quietly to being robbed and enslaved.
And the men who loan money to governments, so called, for the purpose of enabling the latter to rob, enslave, and murder their people, are among the greatest villains that the world has ever seen. And they as much deserve to be hunted and killed (if they cannot otherwise be got rid of) as any slave traders, robbers, or pirates that ever lived.”
But as the Wizard told Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion, “Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.” If you wish to go on believing that your vote counts, that the people you elect truly run this country; go right ahead. But I can guarantee you this, no matter what Donald Trump says, he will not be able to drain the swamp of the real corruption the has infiltrated its way into our system of government, our news media, and academia. That last person who even attempted to stand up to them was JFK; and look what happened to him.
