Editors Note: “This essay portrays a future world where a very few own and control everything, while everyone else has nothing. No money, no power, no voice, no rights, no security and no dignity. Kings hiding behind the politicians ruling serfs. Apply whatever label you like to that eventuality because the label is meaningless. All that matters is what it is.”

“Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes the laws” – Mayer Amschel Rothschild (1744-1812)

They own you and project their power through your government via control of the money and effective ownership of the entire political bodies of nation states. They allocate the wealth. They own the media from which to manufacture all necessary consent for their actions against you, your country and your way of life. They believe they are gods on earth and that you are to be used until you are used up, only for their benefit. In their eyes we are all are sub human swine. You are actively encouraged not to think, and not to notice. – Meet the New Bolsheviks

As citizens of the world we are told that all of our issues boil down to left versus right and that we can all be categorized as one or the other. We are encouraged to argue among ourselves. While they own the corporations which count the votes, we are all told we have a choice. While two or more parties ostensibly share power in member nation states, all flavors of all parties promoted to contenders by their media are practically indistinguishable in their actions regardless of what they say. They all worship their masters, the people who control the private corporations which control the money.

We are told that in the US a New Pearl Harbor manufactured the consent for an an endless war. We are told for our own protection we must we relinquish our rights and civil liberties, we are told we must sacrifice and reduce our standard of living, although the physics prevent this narrative from being true.

We are all now bombarded daily with propaganda which defines our world emanating from a handful of mouths, all carrying the same monolithic message disguised as news or couched as left or right to keep a tired illusion going.

We have watched a network of private international banks keep the profits when they gambled and won, and how the people have met their margin calls when they lost. We have watched them do as they please and command our politicians to go against the wishes of the people they ostensibly represent without even any consequences.

We have watched them coerce free markets and free market capitalism into a fraudulent, manipulation of the truth via financial derivatives backed by an infinite printing press and now  constant covert market interventions and financial trickery such as buying or selling puts on their own debt whose only legitimacy rests on the peoples ability to perform future labor.

We have lived through the greatest wealth transfer in the history of the world where the people lost their wealth, the wealth was re created via journal entries, and that wealth was then distributed to their banks as they increase their worldwide domination and indespensibility. We have watched their media mask and ignore the fraud, corruption and malfeasance. We have watched the politicians stand aside as they cower in fear of prosecuting the crimes of the people and entities who own them;  the people they owe their continued political existence to.

Now in 2011 this privately owned international consortium effectively owns everything. They own entire countries including the one which spends more on military machines than all others combined.

On our behalf as people of the world, the people who control the money and the power have indebted the citizens of the USA which sponsors the worlds reserve currency up to and beyond the point which they can ever repay.  This roots their entire financial architecture in a debt which can never be repaid no matter how hard the people work.

This ponzi fraud not worthy of a cheap touring carnival has effectively rendered the citizens of the world as a collective indentured servant. This is the modern version of chattel slavery without the shackles, and the fallout is beginning.

While the future obligations levied upon the government and thus the population approach 200 trillion dollars in the land of the western world reserve currency, the current revenue towards these obligations is less than 2 trillion a year. Not only the citizens of the USA, but all citizens of the western world from Iceland to Greece to Spain to the UK to the USA have all been bankrupted by orders of magnitude.

The international financial consortium has effectively already transferred the future labor of the populations of the world to themselves. They have given themselves an advance payment on labor you have yet to perform, and if it is not performed, ratings downgrades from their ratings agencies will surely result in a bankruptcy, a default, and a revolution from which they will assign their new sycophant.

In this sophisticated financial shell game which only one in a million can even understand, this architected collapse and resultant wealth transfer is being masked. A collapse is being turned into a decay via their so called quantitative easing, the same strategy of  zimbabwe.

Instead of a dislocation, the citizens of the western world will austerity imposed upon them by their new overlords, the IMF and the World Bank. It will be up to the local politicians to decide what to call it and how to roll it out. To date this rollout is going more successfully in some countries than in others.  Importantly, at this point it is entirely unclear if this austerity can be effectively imposed without civil unrest, which would be met with their police force and armored cars for the oligarchs as well as increased global uncertainty and chaos.

The shareholders of these private entities, the people who own the shares of the Federal Reserve Corporation, the Bank of England, the IMF and the World Bank and so on, these gods on earth would like to own it all, and now effectively they do. The nations are so dependent on this global syndicate that their continued existence is assured. Smart people educated in their institutions are not supposed to notice, but the elephant is increasingly difficult to hide. The fraud now requires total control over information.

In the culmination of a 300 year old pre meditated plan, the politicians of the world are beholden to what is effectively an international organized crime syndicate. A supra national gang of satanic psychopaths owned by a handful of people, because their continued political existence requires the output of their private corporate printing press.

The politicians, the heads of state have all been reduced to feet lickers. They are sycophants, puppets, middlemen. They require their international consortium of money masters printing press, and yet the people revolt. They are sponsored and given their authority to rule only by their masters and the media their masters own.

For the politicians of the world continued loyalty to the printing press, the inexorable mound of ever increasing and unpayable debt, and for the continued praise of it and their masters, they are allowed to continue in their roles. Any deviation from the script is met with a prompt character assassination, and the politicians of the world all know it so they all tread cautiously. They are careful what they say and how they say it.

There is rarely a sincere word spoken in international politics today, and when there is it is usually followed up by a character assassination in the news of the world.

Now because of this unpayable debt comes austerity to the western world. The debt will be inflated away as the people pay for the debt levied on them further transferring wealth and control to the international consortium.

The explanation of course for FED loans to international banks and cayman island bank accounts is that the FED, the IMF and all of these other private corporations are all owned and controlled by the same families which founded the institutions in the first place, and this ownership along with the rules of the road transcends national boundaries. These are among the questions never asked publicly, who are the owners of these institutions and what do they stand for? If they were asked, the people of the world would quickly realize we are all being governed by a handful of people who control the shares of the syndicate.

The fallacy is that the US or any other western country politicians are in control. They are playing a narrative role. They are the left vs right smokescreen which keeps the people occupied while their nations are looted. The heads of state are sponsored. The politicians have a loosely assigned script to work from. They are team players or they are gone.  They are figureheads, mascots, puppets, shills, middle men. They are the face of the money men who control their every action. Most of their people are not sophisticated or educated enough to understand. No one within the realm of their media ownership is going to tell them.

After demonstrating that no audit or financial oversight of any kind will ever be required or allowed, the owners and the controllers of these banks and international networks will now further consolidate their wealth, power and control while the people struggle to repay the debt levied on them. These debts levied upon them without consent are debts created from money out of thin air. Keystrokes on computers have allocated the majority of the worlds wealth to the small cadre of shareholders, the families and people who control this global financial oligarchy.

This consortium can only continue to exist in it’s current form because they have the ability to promote their propaganda via the media they own…for the pittance they hand out to their sycophants and shills.  The people are to be infotained, propagandized and dumbed down. They are discouraged from asking questions. It is now agreed upon that in all the nations they own, any disagreement with the party line makes you the enemy.  They are attempting to project a monolithic culture over the world as they squeeze the people empty.

The truth has become the enemy of the people who own the money, the power, the perception, the politicians and entire nations. This is a very precarious position for the world.

In the seat of power in the nation of the worlds reserve currency, a wholly corrupt and broken architecture now revolves around a constitution which is no longer in effect. The people who control the money control everything. The people are not supposed to notice. They are supposed to be relinquishing their former rights due to a now endless war which has been justified only by their media and sponsored sycophant organizations and think tanks.

The people are to be arguing among themselves about left vs right while both parties appear to be indistinguishable in their relationship with the banks, the money and the power, and everything that translates into something that matters. The people are conditioned to be following the instructions during these wars of conquest for which the consent they manufactured and paid for.

A constant barrage of propaganda has been inflected on the citizens of the world by the media networks owned by these consortium’s as they plot their path to own and control everything.

These wars of conquest, this hijacking of entire armies by the people who control the money, the power and the perception, these wars that further decimate the balance sheets of their countries of origin serve only to further enrich this global syndicate at the people’s expense. The corruption is entrenched. It is systemic. It will not go away on it’s own.

The wars are for profit and control. They are for the expansion of central banks and to create new central banks owned by the same interests. The reasons for the wars are entirely manufactured by their sycophants and their media. They own the politicians. They own the armies. They own the people.

Regardless of what country you live in they tell you to be afraid. They tell you to be willing to make sacrifices to support the continued existence of the ever fewer ever more powerful financial institutions which the politicians and you are all now beholden to. They are filling everyone full of themselves.

The pre eminent property owned by this global financial oligarchy remains for now, the USA. Amid a so called endless war against their enemies, they have engaged the military machine of the USA in three wars.

The first engagement ostensibly justified by the consent they manufactured and now the worlds opium population and vast natural resource reserves are under their ownership. The second war was to free a population from a tyrant although millions of them have now been killed or displaced, and all suffer a lower quality of life. Meanwhile the financial consortium in control of the armies now owns the banks and the oil while the citizens in the US footed the bill for their conquest and expansion.

In 2011 we now enter a third conflict to free another people and the rebels in their spare time have already set up a new central bank. Please don’t think.

This global syndicate, this financial oligarchy is so powerful it can command the US armed forces as a policy enforcement tool. It can manufacture the consent to commit whatever act it desires, to gain more money, more power, and more control over everything. This syndicate makes politicians dance like puppets. They are there because they are saleable to the populations. Given a properly created media persona, the serfs are willing to go along with the narrative. The politicians who are selected and promoted into contention by their media are  easy to blackmail and keep in line because they are all criminals or deviants or both, who will unwaveringly display their loyalty to the New Bolsheviks or else.

These people who own and control everything will soon send representatives to their media to tell you that a global currency is necessary. They will tell you a central global financial authority is necessary to consolidate their power and control over the world and that this is good. They will manufacture a reason why you must support it and their media will sing the praises of it. You will be put on notice that your way of life is changing and that your austerity and sacrifice is required.

Your quality of life as a citizen of any of the participant countries  is set to diminish in every way from the quality of the food you eat, to the purchasing power of any remaining disposable income. You will be used until you are used up. At the same time a handful of global financial oligarchs, the families who control these entities will all live a lifestyle approximating or eclipsing royalty as they rule over their global serfdom, with their ownership transcending any national boundaries.

Coming soon to you, a New World Order which you can see but at the same time are told does not exist….

We will all soon be living in a totalitarian world of a global central bank from which a world government in drag is projected. The local politicians, the heads of state having all now been reduced to foot lickers, taking their orders from the people who now project power globally via control of the nations they own. The world will be reduced to a global police state, or anarchy.

The head of the IMF, a member of the communist party will make the rules and allocate the wealth to his global financial network of oligarchs who represent the shareholders of these entities. You will be told it is necessary. You will be told it is good. You will be encouraged not to think. You will wake up one day financially enslaved and having relinquished all your freedoms. You and your government will owe them everything. They will make the rules because they own the politicians. They will tell you what to think because they own the media. New wars will start in their continued conquest. Something terrible will have happened to the only world we all have to live in.

Meet the New Bolsheviks.

the split

crossing the chasm

EarthBlog News

[tinyurl: http://wp.me/pOhuI-j0%5D

12.24.2010

As we move ahead into 2011, one theme presented is a matrix like split in western societies, particularly in the US. This split revolves around a corporate media portrayal of the world where reality is landscaped by an ideology, and by an actual reality that increasingly diverges from that untouchable paradigm of media concocted “truth”.

In this synthesized version of reality revolving around ideals such as fan worship, celebrity gossip and political correctness, independent or critical thinking is discouraged. Inconvenient events are to be quickly forgotten or deconstructed into an unrelated chain of events.

There is now rarely any mention of the two wars the US is currently fighting, one being the longest in US history. There are no images  of Detroit on TV, where garbage collection has now ceased and trash is piled up in the streets 30 feet high. There are no live video reports of 8,000 formerly middle class families now living in the woods in tents in three counties surrounding Orlando Florida. There is no mention of miles of sub surface oil slicks poisoning our air and water.  There are no warnings about toxic seafood. There is no discussion about lives and generations old ways of life that have been destroyed by greed and corruption.  85 percent of US college graduates are returning home after graduation jobless and saddled up with a lifetime student loan debt but you have to read about that outside the corporate medias realm.  The truth has become bad for business.

From the corporate media there are instead sound bites, bright lights, smiling faces, and corporate media news lies built around an ideological and political agenda.  Anyone in the media who fails to dutifully execute the party line propaganda is quickly un personed. Any high profile figure who dares to contradict the party line encounters a vindictive character assassination by the people who formulate everything you think you know.  The “experts” they promote are professors of fraud, quite often of the now thoroughly debunked Keynesian economic theory kind.

There is a new elephant in the room, and it is the schism, the chasm, this huge divide; the split between what people are supposed to be thinking according to monolithic power obsessed media moguls, and what’s really going on. Already in 2010 several surveys showed that a majority of Americans no longer believe the government even has the continued authority to govern. The approval rating of the people’s representatives has been languishing barely into double digits for years, and over 2 ostensibly different regimes. The standard of living of the average citizen in the west has taken a nosedive, with Americans being particularly hard hit. The banks control an ever larger share of national GDP, yet they do not make anything or provide any societal benefit. Instead they provide enslavement of a nation via credit creation. The elitist banking class are wholly parasitic by nature and yet they run the world. They exist solely by skimming money from other people, or by creating money out of nothing then collecting interest. It is no wonder ways of life and standards of living of ordinary people are being sacrificed. There is a finite wealth in the world and it is increasingly being allocated to the banking class, by the banking class, at the expense of everyone else in the world.

So today there is one segment of society worldwide who still unquestioningly takes the big government party line dope and manufactured government statistics, and one segment where the machine has lost some or all of it’s credibility. The manufactured version of reality now bumps up against what is actually happening in the world. This group of believers and non believers are encouraged to fight among themselves as the divide between the truth and media professed reality grows.

The group of believers who erroneously assume that the government and banking class operate in their best interest continually shrinks however as they are personally touched by the fraud, deceit and corruption which are the three pillars of the emerging plutocracy.  As we go forward, the lies are already out in the open for anyone willing to open their eyes.

We have already seen austerity inspired riots and labor strikes in Iceland, Ireland, Greece, Italy, the UK and France. The increasingly large group of non believers are rioting over a banking class takeover and imposed austerity, theft of their formerly guaranteed pensions or sale of national assets to the banking elites.

Simultaneously, the US is quietly being suffocated. The people are dulled by prozac and flouride. They are drowned in an ocean of celebrity gossip, fansmanship and genetically engineered food proven to kill or injure the unsuspecting mammals who consume it. For the remaining believers, their entire reality is now rooted in deceit and lies, in ignorance and racism;  in religious ideology or media inspired hate;  in a left vs right smokescreen. Everything they believe, everything they think they know, is mostly rooted in lies, propaganda and disinformation. The plutocrats believe they are acting as divine gods on this planet and that the ignorant masses are sub human beasts to be told noble lies and used until they are used up. The chasm, the split, is the gaping wound between truth and illusion.

There is a revolving door between the oligarchs and the government.  Corporate rock star CEO’s now endeavor to patent nature or make a killing on war while looting the corporations they run. Bankruptcy is a tool used to shaft the employees, creditors and shareholders.  One hand shakes the other in a corrupt corporate America protected and in some cases financed by taxpayers themselves. The private for profit banking system owns the treasury and exploits it’s control of the people’s labor via the creation of unlimited debt. The people, the useless eaters are mostly apathetic, detached and clueless as to the forces shaping their own destiny.  They are in effect the enemy of the plutocrats. They are to be placated and entertained; used and used up.

The man elected to change all of this increased the size of the wars he was elected to end. Instead of promised change, there has been more of the same. More lies, more greed, more corruption, more skimming of the wealth from the people to the banking elite and plutocrats.  These oligarchs hide behind bulletproof glass and fly learjets to secret meetings. They skim the people’s wealth and host lavish parties where the cost exceeds the lifetime income of many people in this world.

Everything that has happened since the people’s hope for change came on board has benefited not the population of the world, but this small group of financial elitists who own the entire political body, set the policy and make the rules. They rule from behind a curtain of fraud, deceit, corruption amid a sponsored media festival of lies. The real brokers of money, power and policy create money out of thin air and operate in the shadows, off limits from any focus or disclosure in the media empires they own or control. The entire political body are but a hapless host of stewards on a ship of fools, cowering in fear of the media and the money which owns and sponsors them all.

The media vetted so called “leader of the free world” is a powerless obedient mascot dishing out tyranny and loyal only to the money interests who own him. He controls nothing and is told what to think and what to do by corporate lobbyists and special interests. Should he wander from his assigned script, a character assassination would be promptly performed by the corporate media who he relies on to maintain his power.

The propaganda is all propelled into public consciousness from an increasingly monolithic global mega media propaganda machine which operates as a privatized version of state sponsored media. Debates are framed. PR and ideological opinions are bought and sold then disguised as news. Lies are sold as the truth. Ignorance is sold as a virtue.

With this tremendous loss of trust in the media and government worldwide, on comes the head of the US department of Homeland Security via a wide screen tv at the local wal mart. The attorney general warns you to be very afraid. The TSA is strip searching you and your children. Random shakedowns on the DC subway.  More rules. More restrictions. More forfeited rights. More permissions being revoked. Anyone critical of the emerging elitist plutocracy finds themselves to be the enemy. As the propaganda migrates to the internet, we have TSA shills trolling the blog comments and a 2 billion dollar PR budget for the government to propagandize the people with their own money.

Out of the ashes of a complete loss of trust and a 2 billion dollar propaganda budget is born a new modern day robin hood wearing white. He does whirlwind media tours. He publishes credible leaks that damage everyone except the people in charge. The people are like clay. They are easily molded and shaped. What they believe to be true is subject to what they are taught to believe by the oligarchs who control the media and the creation of money.

So the world today is a giant theater production where the BBC and FOX news release 20 minutes in advance the news that WTC7 has collapsed on the day of the New Pearl Harbor. In 2010 we have Joe Lieberman telling us why we needn’t be concerned that WTC7 collapsed defying a host of laws of physics in the process or that every law regarding a crime scene investigation was violated. There is no mention in the media machine of peer reviewed scientific papers showing high technology high explosive residue in the dust.  There is no mention of any of the important information people need to know to make informed decisions.

The single event that changed everything has proven to be a lie which now has to be protected. An ideological agenda has been put forth. America has been subverted from the inside by the banking class. The people’s wealth has been destroyed or is being confiscated. In Orwellian doublespeak the ever larger group of non believers are labeled as domestic dissidents, terrorists, radicals, and extremists when the people in charge are the ones who are all of those things.

Thomas Jefferson warned us it would happen. He knew this because the founders of the US were revolting against an aristocratic banking class authoritarian rule by the same banking aristocracy lineages who have now subverted and anonymously control the once free USA.

British tyranny via control of the money has caught up with America once again in the 21st century. The now global banking aristocracy is attempting to shift the wealth of the world to itself through a shell game where assets of countries are traded for notes manufactured out of thin air backed only by the labor of the same citizens forced to accept the fraud. This is a world where armies are policy enforcement or asset acquisition tools of the plutocrats. This is a world where the people providing the labor to fund the machine are to be used until they are used up. Their toil and their labor is only to fund the lavish lifestyle of a plutocratic elite.

So as we begin 2011, we move headlong into a world where the real truth is becoming nearly impossible to discern. The need for protection is blanketing and permeating every aspect of the lives of ordinary people. Governments living off of printing presses are getting larger, more authoritarian, more dangerous and more bankrupt. The world moves towards a single currency with few alternatives where global power and control can be consolidated. The people all suffer. Standards of living decline. Real wealth decreases. Social problems, crime and drug use increase. Western society continues a slow rot, a decay, amid an insolvent banking system that owns a media wing from which the false flag terror propaganda is catapulted by the oligarchs. The giant suffocating squid tells you to spy on your neighbors and be very afraid.

As an ordinary participant in a western world society, the party is over. Your former way of life is being revoked under the guise of an endless war waged by criminals wielding fake terror and posing as your savior and protectors. There is nothing you can do about it except to get out of the way.

boxes of talk

Editors note: This post is being regularly updated with new footnotes

Turn on the TV, turn on the radio, plug in the internet…big box of talk. Label after label after label. Talk, talk and more talk. I have a lot of questions, and some ideas regarding why according to recent polling data a staggeringly low 4 percent of the public supports the establishment political class[10], why only 8 percent would re elect an incumbent lawmaker[11], why just 21% believe U.S. Government has the consent of the governed[12] , why 4 out of 5 Americans don’t trust Washington[13], and why nearly one out of three Americans view the US government as a “major threat” to their freedoms[14].

https://i1.wp.com/www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/glassapril.JPG

With the government, big business, big banking and big media all seeming like one in the same today, some analysts have argued this is Mussolini’s definition of fascism[2]. It is clear that the same small group of faces rotate into one position from out of another position and no matter how bad any of them screw up, you still see the same faces. There is no debate about that.

These elite are free to break laws and commit crimes right out in the open and nothing bad ever happens to them. There is no accountability, there is no punishment [21]. Public elected officials break laws and change laws and embezzle money and slosh taxpayer money back and forth among themselves and their friends and no matter how egregious the crimes,  no matter how on the record and absolutely wrong they have been, no matter how many people they have killed or how many lives they have wrecked or how fabulously wealthy they have become in the process of doing so, they are still the same people in and out of a revolving door all smiling and patting each other on the back while congratulated and treated with the utmost respect by the corporate media [22].

https://i1.wp.com/www.wirecase.com/pictures/1605-1148560849_2_2.jpg

Other labels being thrown around in the past few years to explain this transformation are oligarchy, plutocracy, kleptocracy, aristocracy, socialism, totalitarianism, empire, and more[3,4,5,6,7,31]. The defective establishment media mirror uses the implausible argument for everything being different  “it’s the same as it ever was” or “what are you even talking about?”. It’s almost like a corporate media induced mass hypnosis is in effect and has gripped the entire nation.

https://i0.wp.com/www.bbc5.tv/1/Dees/images/OK_dees.jpg

“Just move on nothing to see here”.

With the government takeover of housing and now owning many of the largest public corporations, some have argued a tilt towards communism, although no one seems comfortable using that label. No two situations are ever the same however, and none of these labels seem to completely capture the transformation taking place in the United States over not months or years but over decades and accelerating during the past decade.[9,23]

https://i1.wp.com/www.choosingraw.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/labels1.jpg

The people of the United States typically call themselves one of two labels, either republicans or democrats. The interesting thing about that is that nationwide, for the past decade now under the stewardship of each of the labels, the public approval ratings of congress and the administration have been arguably about as low as they can be and recently dipping into the single digits for public approval for the first time ever[11]. Something is definitely wrong and no one seems to know what to call it[23,25].

https://i2.wp.com/media.gallup.com/poll/graphs/080513ApprovalsGraph2_swn98fna0.gif

WTF?

So despite what everyone is calling themselves, according to the polls, the citizens themselves don’t seem to be very happy about how things are going. Is there a label for that?  Is it a disaffected-detached-ocracy? Maybe it is a so-busy-trying-to-get-by-you-can’t-keep-up-ocracy? Maybe it’s a

knuckleheadsarguingamongthemselveswhilethecountryistransformedandlootedocracy? [30]

What kind of ocracy is this????

When did we cross the threshold from where there was any party or politician which stood for small limited government, small government spending, free enterprise and a government like the US had decades ago that mostly stayed out of the way of it’s citizens? What about a government for the people? There is apparently no one for the people today. Today it seems to be an all out contest for who can suck up the most to the most special interest payola while simultaneously lying their asses off to the people they are supposedly representing[10].

There is no one who will be allowed to be a legitimate contender by the established media, party, and banking system who doesn’t support the status quo. You can even be elected on a platform of change people hope for, and then completely ignore everything you said. How convenient. What kind of a message is sent to the people when someone is elected on a platform of lies? Exactly what point was it where lying about everything to the people became ok and even necessary[1,9]?

Politicians in DC will blame things like a “bad economy” for their current record low approval ratings. It seems obvious that when a candidate is elected on a platform of change the population was desperately hoping for,  they expect delivery. After the systematic dismantling of the constitution by the previous administration, the new administration turned out to be more or less exactly the same. What happens when only 4% support the status quo[10], and you get more status quo no matter which handle you pull? Do they lose another 50% of their base and go to 2%? That could continue until you need scientific notation to express their percentage of support. Then what?

The Judicial branch. Their contribution was to officially terminate the republic in 2010 by allowing unlimited corporate campaign contributions. It’s hard to say if that bothered people because most people still don’t know about it. The corporate media didn’t talk very much about allowing their unlimited corporate contributions for their sponsored choices.  So the same wars are still going on, the same policies are in place, and the same people are running things.  So maybe some people are disappointed about that? It is certainly possible.  Could this explain the hopelessness citizens are recording in surveys? If so what do you call that?

Could mortgaging the country’s future to bail out some arrogant bankers who lost all their money have caused some loss of trust? I don’t think bailing out the banking system so they could then in turn make record profits was the kind of change people were hoping for. I could be wrong about that. People can understand how things have improved dramatically for the bankers on wall street with now record profits and bonuses, but the people who are home unemployed because their factory shut down aren’t buying it. They aren’t buying anything because they have no money. What is that called? Can we throw a label and a sound bite on that….please?

https://i2.wp.com/assets.theatlantic.com/static/coma/images/issues/200905/imf-advice-wide.jpg

You can’t just “run” for office today. Lets be serious. The corporate media would have you believe you can just throw your hat into the ring and off you go. You need this giant political machine behind you to grease every palm along the way. You have to be sponsored and vetted by the media before anyone even hears your name. If you cross any of the medias agendas or sponsors you are political toast within 48 hours. Votes are bought and sold like trading cards. As a citizen,  you basically have to be for someone who is more or less the same as everyone else with an expertly crafted public persona. What is the word for that? The label oligarchy doesn’t seem to do justice to that much concentration of wealth, power and deceit. A so called two party system with no real choice is totalitarianism in drag[6]. Please vote for your favorite candidate. Then expect the same thing no matter which lever you pull. You get vanilla or french vanilla with sprinkles. Take your ice cream cone and move on.

Maybe it’s a one-big-vampire-thing-ocracy?

Regardless of political parties, one thing is clear to every person who has been living in the US for more than a few years. There are ever more rules. they keep making new rules, and they never take any of the old rules away. There are more fees, and more taxes, and more things that used to be free that are no longer free, things that now require a license, a certification, an approval, something you used to be allowed to do but are no longer allowed to do,  or some other kind of relinquishment of a former right. There is a nanny state which dictates to you what where when how and why to do just about everything you are supposed to do.

You got a problem with that?

Well then, apply for a permit and after paying the necessary fees and getting the necessary approvals you might be able to hold up a sign in a pre defined fenced off area back there by the dumpsters that says “I do not approve of all of this, I think I’m starting to know how people living in the soviet union felt”. Maybe. Storm troopers in riot gear would be deployed to stand next to you to ensure you didn’t wave the sign or otherwise cause any hazard to the public who needs protecting.

What is it called when a country goes from being a decent place to live to some sort of paranoid, locked down disneyworld where nothing is real and all the people are making less, paying more, requiring permits and fees and approvals to do anything? What do you call that?

This vampire squid nanny state tells you what to do, and how much it will cost you in fees, fines, or whatever if you don’t do it exactly that way. It assumes you cannot think for yourself and you need to be protected from yourself and everyone else. It means you are not competent to run your life so the nanny state will run it for you. It prohibits and inhibits small business due to taxation, regulation, barriers to entry and cost of operation. It destroys the simple civil rights Americans used to take for granted one by one and little by little like breaking rocks until nothing is left but a pile of dust. It gets bigger, and bigger, and bigger until it runs out of food which is in this case money[15].

https://i2.wp.com/euro-med.dk/billeder/fed-vampyr.jpg

The book of rules have become so large and so onerous that the only thing you can be sure of is that despite your best intentions, you are probably breaking some rules right now that you don’t even know about. At the same time you will be considered negligent if you don’t know what they are.  The only constant is ever more rules and an ever larger government required to enforce and update them.

You are still free to go to work, pay your fees, taxes and watch their corporate programming and sports entertainment or whatever. You can pay only a couple of days salary to watch some corporate whores toss a ball back and forth at corporate field and whoop it up for one color or the other with your fellow buffoons.

This is all true whether you are short or tall, uneducated or educated, higher or lower income, white, black, red or yellow, left or right or anywhere in the middle. It is true whether you worship any god or all gods or no god. Any political or special interest hacks who argue otherwise now sound like a cartoon.  No one can legitimately argue the ever increasing number of rules, fees, permits, restrictions, taxes and regulations and loss of rights[12].

So the government and the politicians are all for one thing. An ever larger government who is your nanny. What is that called? Maybe it is the world takeover by nanny statists? For this reason or that reason or to protect you from bad guys or from your own self, you need a huge book of rules and regulations and it needs to keep getting bigger all the time.

Now you need to get scanned by Acme Corporation x ray scanners to get on an airplane.

https://i1.wp.com/www.ntnews.com.au/images/uploadedfiles/editorial/pictures/2009/04/30/scanner-RS.jpg

Being a good citizen however, you recognize that all of these new rules and regulations and fees and taxes have all been instituted for your own protection and well being. You feel so much better knowing that you need to be protected from enemies of your government that you are willing to relinquish all your former rights and privileges and put up with endless new hassles. It’s all being done for you on your behalf and you appreciate that. It is necessary. That’s what you keep being told at least. Just say duh thanks.

Some have used the term vampire squid to depict an over reaching banking system but it is pretty easy to argue after living here for a few years that the entire thing is a vampire squid.

Post 911 has ushered in new departments and new regulations and new and more of everything that restricts what is permissible or not because now you need to be protected from people living in caves, or something like that. The general idea I think was that some hard drinking devout muslims who liked strip clubs and Jack Abramoff’s casino??? came out of their caves and went to flight school, became marginal pilots and on their first attempt defeated the entire NORAD air defense system, all airport security, and flew two sophisticated jumbo jets perfectly into the sides of buildings pulverizing them into dust and defying a whole host of laws of physics in the process. Following that, the only thing remaining were passports from the hijackers, which somehow did not turn to dust but instead fluttered to the ground intact, were picked up by an anonymous passer by and delivered to the NYPD. The whole mess was then hauled off to China in the blink of an eye violating every written rule regarding a crime scene investigation. A bunch of still unidentified parties made a fortune in the options markets from foreknowledge[29], the building owners were generously compensated and I lost track of the rest of the story line a while back. It was getting too complicated.

The main character was a guy with a name I couldn’t pronounce popping in and out of caves and issuing death threats every time the population needs a good scare. I don’t know if they ever caught him or not. I have heard also that we are still in two wars as a result of all of that, one now being the longest in US history. I’m not sure. They don’t talk about it on TV any more.

So to the best of my knowledge, you are supposed to see a Hollywood style demolition which changes every aspect of your life as a citizen for the worse, and not ask any questions. Sort of like in China you can’t talk about Tienanmen square and in the US you can’t talk about 911 because even if you ask a question, it somehow makes you the enemy or a sympathizer or something along those lines. I don’t know exactly what the rules are regarding that. So what I do is if anyone mentions 911 I just close my eyes and put my fingers in my ears. I don’t want to let any sympathizers in[20].

I-need-so-many-rules-and-regulations-that-I-can-only-be-sure-I-don’t-even-know-what-they-all-are-ocracy?

After using a Pentium class computer and performing billions of calculations to compute your taxes, you have no idea exactly where the money goes, but I know it isn’t nearly enough to feed it, as the national debt accumulates by more than the average individual net worth every second of every day.

So where does this end? Is it tyranny when a population are told exactly how to do everything they have to do in life, or is it only tyranny if what you are expected to tolerate is really bad? If so then who gets to define what “really bad” is? At what point is it, ok, just a pain, really a pain, or really bad?  For example right now, traveling on an airplane is just a pain, compared to say, a root canal. It is however really bad compared to say 1970. So we are dealing with a set of relative issues here and static labels aren’t particularly useful.

Currently, as by every statistic known, the wealth is transferring from the many to the (very) few. How and why exactly is that happening? I’m not talking about lower to higher income either for the political hacks out there reading on the ethernet. No one reading this essay will fall into the group where the wealth is being transferred to. The wealth is being transferred to people whose portfolios contain shares of say, the FED and the Bank of England[15].

Is this wealth and power consolidation all a big accident? It isn’t happening by democrats OR republicans.It’s happening over each so called “party” presiding. Is that related at all to the changes we have seen in government? What is that called?  Some people call it an oligarchy when the many are controlled by the few, but how does the oligarchy get and maintain it’s power? Is that what we have? Is that the reason for all the rules? [24].

Does the vampire squid nanny state power reside in levying so many rules, fees, permits, taxes and regulations that it is the sum total of it all at the root of the increasing oppression? Is that how the vampire squid attacks? Death by 1000 cuts? How does that end up? What is a good name for that? [26]

What should you call it when every thing that comes from the corporate media looks like it was created by the largest growing segment of business in the US, a PR firm?

If the government has already issued debt beyond the people’s capacity to earn enough to repay it, then what does that mean? Does that mean like bankruptcy but you just haven’t filed yet? Do you think everyone soon will be able to add a zero to how much they make creating a remote possibility that the debt could be repaid? So what is it called when a nanny state empire goes bankrupt? What is the name for that?

Maybe it really doesn’t matter what the name is. Maybe it only matters what it is. Maybe you are living through the decline of an empire and the decay associated with that[19]. Empires don’t fail overnight. It can happen so slowly that you fail to see it. The politicians are failing[12], the institutions are failing[18], the society is failing and the economy is failing. The empire is entirely bankrupt both economically[16], and morally[17].

What it is will continue to self destruct on it’s own without any further assistance. It doesn’t require a label.

This essay proposes a set of assumptions to explain a set of empirical observations related to past, present, and future broad market behavior. There is no attempt to integrate geopolitical events such as war. The theory is called knife edge economics. It was first published privately to EarthBlog News subscribers in the spring of 2009 and disseminated publicly in late December 2009 via in an introspective look at the future of America. This essay offers an elaboration from that point.

knife edge economics

assumptions:

A collapse occurred in 2008 due to an ever increasing amount of debt which became too large to finance.

The FED is never going to tell the truth. Neither is the Treasury. Neither is the Banking system.

As short term interest rates were raised, the housing market collapsed, ending a multi decade long sting of FED induced serial bubbles which all required ever more debt.

The last bubble, the real estate bubble, was by far the largest bubble. The last remaining bubble is the unpayable debt still called a currency (the US dollar).

The collapse of the real estate bubble caused massive insolvency in the banking system, the government and the population. This set off a chain reaction of derivative failures with losses dwarfing available capital. This required public bailouts and state control of public corporations.

The collapse has already occurred, and all that can be done at this point is to alter the look and feel of the collapse, and affect real wealth and capital allocation as the collapse continues.

The entire global financial system at this point resembles a balloon. As new debt is created in the US, the capital is deployed overseas causing the balloon to expand and all asset prices to rise and the US dollar to fall because US banks are buying foreign assets and selling dollars. As the balloon deflates, capital returns to the US causing a rise in the US dollar and a deflation of all asset prices. The idea that capital returns to America seeking safety is an MSM red herring.

If the FED did not have a printing press available, the entire global financial system would have already completely collapsed amid massive insolvency into a deflationary depression and total system failure.

Since the FED does have a printing press, we have printed more money and increased the already unpayable debt so as to attempt to regain solvency of member banks and affiliated institutions.

Stability is achieved by ensuring low volatility. Low volatility is ensured by active short term market management.

If the volatility as measured by the VIX is low, the knife edge is wide. If the volatility is high, the knife edge narrows.

As the knife edge narrows (as volatility increases), the risk of falling off on one side or another increases.

The two sides of the knife edge are a: a hyperinflationary depression  b: a deflationary collapse

If the knife edge thins and collapse occurs, which side of the knife will be determined by how much money is printed (debt is increased).

If the knife edge remains wide (if the volatility remains low) , the collapse can be made to look like an extended period of economic and social decay lasting as long as one or two decades, ending at a point that resembles a collapse, but arriving there without a dislocation.

To the people, it will feel more of less the same. The experience will be high unemployment and a much lower standard of living due to unaffordability or lack of money.

The final outcome is either default or devaluation via inflating the debt away, or changing to a new devalued currency.

The FED, the Treasury and member banks along with Central Banks and affiliated institutions overseas are all working in concert using active management techniques of all kinds as a means to achieve policy objectives.

The primary policy objective is market stability.

The rate of quantitative easing (money printing) determines long term interest rates. Long term interest rates determine whether the FED is in control, or out of control.

The policy is to print enough money to keep long term interest rates low, so the real estate market and banking system can avoid continued collapse and regain solvency.

Artificially suppressing long term interest rate has the effect of depressing the US dollar which has the effect of boosting US share prices and commodity prices.

Using knife edge economics as a predictive tool, the ten year note and the VIX are leading indicators regarding collapse or decay. If the ten year yield remains low, then the FED would be assumed to be in control and the dollar would be free to slowly depreciate. The knife edge as measured by the VIX would remain wide, the FED would have more room to maneuver and commodity, stock and other real asset prices would be expected to move higher.

Another way to look at this would be that policy effect on asset prices is only a reflection of a depreciating dollar against all assets. In other words, assets like stocks may be going up, but only insofar as to reflect the decline in the worth of the dollar, which may or may not be well indicated by the US dollar index. The dollar would depreciate in this way possibly for a decade or more until the unpayable debt was inflated away.

If however there was to be a surge in the 10 yr rate, this would indicate a loss of FED control and would argue for much lower stock and commodity prices, along with a risk of a repeat of October 2008.

The FED solution for a market based surge in the 10 yr interest rate and a volatility increase would be to accelerate QE.  If printing money does not reduce the interest rate then knife edge economics would argue the FED is losing control and would risk hyperinflation to regain it with the alternative being insolvency and absolute system failure as was almost experienced in 2008.

Generally speaking, knife edge economics would explain current FED policy as endeavoring to promote stability through any active or passive means necessary. Keep the 10 yr yield low. Manage equity prices for stability and within bands. Allow the dollar to depreciate for an extended period of time, causing asset prices to slowly inflate to regain solvency within the system.

Editors note: EarthBlog News does not provide financial advice.  We are proposing an analytic structure to explain market behavior.

Editors Note: The Federal Reserve (the FED) is the third central bank of the United States. The first central bank of the United States charter was not renewed, causing the war of 1812. The second central bank of the United States charter was revoked by Andrew Jackson via executive order. Shortly thereafter he became the first sitting president to have an assassination attempt on his life. He survived two attempts.

Please take the time to read about a criminal syndicate masquerading as our saviors while they rob us of our freedom, wealth and prosperity in a calculated, systematic way, meticulously planned over hundreds of years. The FED reports to another private corporation, the BIS. They control the money. They bought the press. These satanic vultures seeing themselves as gods on earth and us as cockroaches or donkeys, control the agenda which is to ultimately control the world via control of the money.  None of us are going to like it. They don’t care.

In this essay I have liberally used their own quotes. In this way, you don’t have to believe what this author says.  Instead, they will tell you themselves.

“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 F. Hylan, 1922

The Federal Reserve (the FED) was chartered by the US Congress in 1913 to issue currency on behalf of the US Treasury via the Federal Reserve Act.

The Federal Reserve is a private corporation. It is neither Federal, nor does it have any Reserves. The Federal Reserve creates money out of nothing, then collects interest on the debt. It was conceived by several of the world’s wealthiest bankers in 9 days of secretive meetings at a Jekyll Island retreat in November of 1910.

Why all the secrecy?

We do know a few things about the Federal Reserve.  Senator Nelson Wilmarth Aldrich (November 6, 1841 – April 16, 1915) and Paul Moritz Warburg (August 10, 1868 – January 24, 1932) were both instrumental in it’s creation.

Institute for Historical Review
The Warburgs: The Twentieth-Century Odyssey of a Remarkable Jewish Family, by Ron Chernow. New York: Random House, 1993. Hardcover. 820 pages. Photographs. Bibliography. Reference notes. Index.
Reviewed by John Weir
In November 1910, [Senator] Aldrich [of Rhode Island], Paul [Warburg], and four other experts sneaked off to discuss bank reform at a secret hideaway on Jekyll Island off the Georgia coast. With Democrats now in control of Congress and Progressives railing against Wall Street, the bankers had to travel incognito, lest they be accused of hatching a cabal. As part of the elaborate charade, the conference participants pretended to be sportsmen, outfitting themselves as duck hunters. What Chernow does not adequately explain is why such secrecy was necessary if a central bank was really such a great idea. We are told, in effect, that Warburg and others hatched a cabal to avoid being accused of hatching a cabal. Because it was the product of a furtive conclave, and secrecy still surrounds many central bank decision-making activities, it is hardly surprising that there are so many dark suspicions and “banking conspiracy” theories involving the Federal Reserve Bank. According to Chernow, Paul Warburg was the only person in America who understood how a central bank works. In 1912 and 1913, he drew up the basic plan for the Federal Reserve banking system, and he drafted the Federal Reserve Act. In December 1913 President Wilson signed the Act establishing the new central bank. If anyone can be called the father of the Federal Reserve Bank, the New York Times has rightly noted, it is Paul Warburg. The new central bank’s board of governors — which for several years included Paul Warburg — became top-heavy with political appointees whose policy of loose credit set the stage for the Great Depression. America’s economic collapse of the 1930s can be traced to the Federal Reserve’s operation by incompetents and self-serving hacks.
Address

According to the current FED board of governors:

“It [the FED] is not owned by anyone and is not a private, profit-making institution. Instead, it is an independent entity within the government, having both public purposes and private aspects.”

The same people have told us however…

“The last duty of a central banker is to tell the public the truth” – Alan Stuart Blinder – Vice Chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System from June 1994 to January 1996  (PBS’s Nightly Business Report, 1994)

Woodrow Wilson was early in his first term as president in 1913. His pen signed the Federal Reserve act into law. He later said remorsefully in “The New Freedom: A Call for the Emancipation of the Generous Energies of a People: ”

However it has come about, it is more important still that the control of credit also has become dangerously centralized. It is the mere truth to say that the financial resources of the country are not at the command of those who do not submit to the direction and domination of small groups of capitalists who wish to keep the economic development of the country under their own eye and guidance. The great monopoly in this country is the monopoly of big credits. So long as that exists, our old variety and freedom and individual energy of development are out of the question. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is privately concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men who, even if their action be honest and intended for the public interest, are necessarily concentrated upon the great undertakings in which their own money is involved and who necessarily, by very reason of their own limitations, chill and check and destroy genuine economic freedom. This is the greatest question of all, and to this statesmen must address themselves with an earnest determination to serve the long future and the true liberties of men.This money trust, or, as it should be more properly called, this credit trust, of which Congress has begun an investigation, is no myth; it is no imaginary thing. It is not an ordinary trust like another. It doesn’t do business every day. It does business only when there is occasion to do business. You can sometimes do something large when it isn’t watching, but when it is watching, you can’t do much. And I have seen men squeezed by it; I have seen men who, as they themselves expressed it, were put “out of business by Wall Street,” because Wall Street found them inconvenient and didn’t want their competition.

So what IS the truth? You are supposed to believe (according to the FED’s Board of Governor’s) that the most powerful corporation in the world isn’t owned by anyone. Because of this fact, it tells us that this institution called the Federal Reserve is so powerful they won’t even bother to waste any time to create a plausible cover story. Some would call that obscene.  It’s obvious when you look into the matter, they don’t even care what you think.

“By this means [printing money] government may secretly and unobserved, confiscate the wealth of the people, and not one man in a million will detect the theft.”- John Maynard Keynes (the father of ‘Keynesian Economics’ which our nation now endures) in his book “THE ECONOMIC CONSEQUENCES OF THE PEACE” (1920).

The Federal Reserve is a private corporation. As such, there is no reporting requirement as there are with public corporations. A corporation by definition has shareholders. The FED has shareholders, we just don’t know who they are because as they have pointed out…they don’t have to say.

“The real rulers in Washington are invisible, and exercise power from behind the scenes.” Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter, 1952

The world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes.”  Benjamin Disraeli  1844

 “Three hundred men, each of whom knows all the others, govern the fate of the European continent, and they elect their successors from their entourage.” Walter Rathenau WIENER FREIE PRESSE, December 24, 1912

“Fifty men have run America, and that’s a high figure.” Joseph Kennedy, father of JFK, in the July 26th, l936 issue of The New York Times.

The current FED chairman, Ben Bernanke, isn’t the owner of the FED. He’s an employee. Who are his bosses? We have no idea. Well, we have an idea, but we have no proof. Following the money and the family trees gives us an idea.

Maybe some would argue, why should they be required to say?

Isn’t anyone curious?

The FED, in charge of creating the US currency, is arguably the most powerful institution of any kind on this planet. Decisions made by the FED affect the lives of people not just in the US, but everywhere in the world. The FED by virtue of it’s policies and because it effectively has an unlimited bank account, makes decisions that affect standards of living and capital allocation spanning the globe.  In 2008, we watched them decide in closed door Sunday afternoon “emergency” meetings who survives and who doesn’t. We don’t know who was there, we don’t know what was said, the only thing we know is who survived and who didn’t.

So why isn’t this topic ever discussed? Here we have a situation where the most powerful people in the world (the shareholders of the Federal Reserve) remain completely anonymous.

“We will have a world government whether you like it or not. The only question is whether that government will be achieved by conquest or consent.” James (son of Paul)  Warburg quotes ( Banker, Shareholder, Founder, US Federal Reserve, Founder Council on Foreign Relations  1896-1969 ) while speaking before the United States Senate,  February 17, 1950

“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 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.” Tragedy and Hope: A History of The World in Our Time (Macmillan Company, 1966,) Professor Carroll Quigley of Georgetown University

“The New World Order cannot happen without U.S. participation, as we are the most significant single component. Yes, there will be a New World Order, and it will force the United States to change it’s perceptions.” — Henry Kissinger, World Affairs Council Press Conference, Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel , April 19th 1994

“The New World Order will have to be built from the bottom up rather than from the top down … but an end run on national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece will accomplish much more than the old-fashioned frontal assault.” — Richard Gardner – Council on Foreign Relations Journal, April 1974, Page 558

Yes, there have been studies done and there has been a lot of speculation and conjecture as to who the shareholders actually are, but no one knows for sure. Put it this way, anyone who does know, isn’t saying. Deconstructing all the paper entities and their manifestations, who are the people? What do they stand for? Why don’t we know?

“While boasting of our noble deeds we’re careful to conceal the ugly fact that by an iniquitous money system we have nationalized a system of oppression which, though more refined, is not less cruel than the old system of chattel slavery. – Horace Greeley Editor, New York Tribune

The people behind the curtain, the people who are making the decisions and issuing orders that shape the daily lives of every single American remain completely anonymous. How can this be?

These are the most powerful people on the planet. Don’t we deserve to know? It seems unfathomable that we don’t, or that no one has even asked on the people’s behalf.

“The few who understand the system, will either be so interested from it’s profits or so dependent on it’s favors, that there will be no opposition from that class.” — Rothschild Brothers of London, 1863

So why is it that there has never in modern history been a member of the US congress who has asked publicly who the anonymous people are who control our lives via a printing press and an unlimited bank account? Are they afraid they might lose their job? Or worse?

“We have, in this country, one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board. This evil institution has impoverished the people of the United States and has practically bankrupted our government. It has done this through the corrupt practices of the moneyed vultures who control it”. – Congressman Louis T. McFadden, Chairman of the Committee on Banking and Currency (Louis T. McFadden was assassinated)

“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.” President James A. Garfield – 20th President of the United States  1881: two weeks before he was assassinated

“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, 1976, killed in the Korean Airlines 747 that was shot down

Furthermore, the FED is not subject to an audit and they claim that doing so would somehow limit their ability to do their job. They claim that if the public knew who their mysterious international wire transfers in 2008 of US taxpayer money were distributed to it would “undermine confidence in the financial system”. I’m sure it would. The FED is the only financial entity in the world which claims immunity from an audit and gets away with it.

“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 it’s issuance.” – James Madison

Their job, by the way, is to “maintain price stability”.  Since their charter in 1913, the US dollar has lost approximately 95 percent of it’s value. Given a primary mission of maintaining price stability, history now shows an unequivocal, colossal failure of their primary stated mission.

Summarizing, we have an entity which:

  • is a private corporation created in absolute secrecy and owned by anonymous shareholders
  • has never been audited and claims immunity
  • has demonstrated a colossal failure of their primary mission
  • affects the daily lives and standard of living of every single American
  • have stated publicly that their last duty is to tell the public the truth
  • has presided over the absolute destruction of the middle class in America and the confiscation of their wealth

Am I the only person in America who thinks we deserve some answers? Why are our politicians so timid and fearful of the FED? Does it bother anyone else to listen to our self important bought and paid for buffoons we call congressmen compete with each other to see who can heap the most praise on an institution that has completely failed at it’s primary mission and bankrupted the people in the process?

“And the banks — hard to believe in a time when we’re facing a banking crisis that many of the banks created — are still the most powerful lobby on Capitol Hill. And they frankly own the place.” – Senator Dick Durbin 2009

Furthermore, in 2008 we were told that the FED and their affiliate banks were “too big to fail” and thus, their margin calls from speculation should be met by the people. If our lifespans were longer, we would recognize that as a trick which has already been used in the past to consolidate power and transfer wealth from the people, to themselves. When they win, they keep the profits. When they lose, you pay. This guarantees that ultimately, the FED and their global cabal [the syndicate Elders] will have all the money.

“Gentlemen, I have had men watching you for a long time and I am convinced that you have used the funds of the bank to speculate in the breadstuffs of the country. When you won, you divided the profits amongst you, and when you lost, you charged it to the bank. You tell me that if I take the deposits from the bank and annul its charter, I shall ruin ten thousand families. That may be true, gentlemen, but that is your sin! Should I let you go on, you will ruin fifty thousand families, and that would be my sin! You are a den of vipers and thieves” – Andrew Jackson, seventh President of the United States (1829–1837).

Could it possibly be that the FED along with their anonymous owners are the ones really in charge? It looks that way to me. After you have studied history, it isn’t much of a stretch.

“Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes the laws” – Mayer Amschel Rothschild (1744-1812)

I will close with a quote from Thomas Jefferson. Follow the money.  Jefferson’s dark prognostication is coming to be fully realized here in 2010.

‘I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered..’ – – Thomas Jefferson – Third President of the United States and primary architect of the US Constitution

The Federal Reserve Is A PRIVATELY OWNED Corporation
By Thomas D. Schauf
Address

Paupers In The Land Our Forefathers Conquered
A long time ago, in an America now far, far away, the majority of the American people owned the land that they live on.  The term “my land” actually meant something back then.  But today that has fundamentally changed.  Now the majority of the American people owe on the land that they live on.  In fact, most of them owe big money to the giant corporate banking interests that control the mortgage industry.  So how did the American people come to be debtors and paupers in the land that our forefathers conquered?

Nobel Prize-Winning Economist: Federal Reserve System is Corrupt and Undermines Democracy
Joseph Stiglitz – former head economist at the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and a nobel-prize winner – said yesterday that the very structure of the Federal Reserve system is so fraught with conflicts that it is “corrupt” and undermines democracy.
Stiglitz said:
If we [i.e. the IMF] had seen a governance structure that corresponds to our Federal Reserve system, we would have been yelling and screaming and saying that country does not deserve any assistance, this is a corrupt governing structure.

* Blocking Congress and the public from holding powerful Fed officials accountable by falsely declaring–for 17 years–it had no transcripts of its meetings;
* Manipulating the stock and bond markets in 1994 under cover of a preemptive strike against inflation;
* Allowing 5.5 billion to be sent to Saddam Hussein from a small Atlanta branch of a foreign bank–the result of faulty bank examination practices by the Fed;
* Stonewalling Congressional investigations and misleading the Washington Post about the 6,300 found on the Watergate burglars.

Nelson W. Aldrich
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Nelson Wilmarth Aldrich (November 6, 1841 – April 16, 1915) was a prominent American politician and a leader of the Republican Party in the Senate, where he served from 1881 to 1911. Because of his impact on national politics and central position on the pivotal Senate Finance Committee, he was referred to by the press and public alike as the “General Manager of the Nation”, dominating all tariff and monetary policies in the first decade of the 20th century. In a career that spanned three decades, Aldrich helped to create an extensive system of tariffs that protected American factories and farms from foreign competition. He rebuilt the American financial system along Progressive lines through the institution of the federal income tax amendment and the Federal Reserve System. He claimed that this would lead to greater efficiency. Aldrich became wealthy with investments in street railroads, sugar, rubber and banking. His son Richard Steere Aldrich became a U.S. Representative, and his daughter, Abby, married John D. Rockefeller, Jr., the only son of John D. Rockefeller. Her son, Nelson Aldrich Rockefeller, served as Vice President of the United States under Gerald Ford.

68% Think the Fed is a Government Agency
I might be a little bit of a radical. Tonight I stepped out side my apartment and interacted with those around me. Here’s what I found out: 68% (72/106) of the people I spoke with in San Francisco believed that the Federal Reserve Bank is an agency of the government. The specific question I asked was “Is the Federal Reserve a private corporation or an agency of the government?

“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”.- SIR JOSIAH STAMP, (President of the Bank of England in the 1920’s, the second richest man in Britain):

“The modern Banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is perhaps the most astounding piece of sleight of hand that was ever invented. Banks can in fact inflate, mint and unmint the modern ledger-entry currency”.- MAJOR L .L. B. ANGUS

“Today, America would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order. Tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told that there were an outside threat from beyond , whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well-being granted to them by the World Government.” Dr. Henry Kissinger, Bilderberger Conference, Evians, France, 1991

“People who will not turn a shovel full of dirt on the project (Muscle Shoals Dam) nor contribute a pound of material, will collect more money from the United States than will the People  who supply all the material and do all the work. This is the terrible thing about interest …But here is the point: If the Nation can issue a dollar bond it can issue a dollar bill. The element that makes the bond good makes the bill good also. The difference between the bond and the bill is that the bond lets the money broker collect twice the amount of the bond and an additional 20%. Whereas the currency, the honest  sort provided by the Constitution pays nobody but those who contribute in some useful way. It is absurd to say our Country can issue bonds and cannot issue currency. Both are promises to pay, but one fattens the usurer and the other helps the People. If the currency issued by the People were no good, then the bonds would be no good, either. It is a terrible situation when the Government, to insure the National Wealth,  must go in debt and submit to ruinous interest charges at the hands of men who control the fictitious value of gold. Interest is the invention of Satan”. – THOMAS A. EDISON

“Lenin is said to have declared that the best way to destroy the Capitalistic System was to debauch the currency. . .  Lenin was certainly right.

BILL MOYERS: And you say that these this oligarchy consists of six megabanks. What are the six banks?
JAMES KWAK: They are Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, Bank of America, and Wells Fargo.
BILL MOYERS: And you write that they control 60 percent of our gross national product?
JAMES KWAK: They have assets equivalent to 60 percent of our gross national product. And to put this in perspective, in the mid-1990s, these six banks or their predecessors, since there have been a lot of mergers, had less than 20 percent. Their assets were less than 20 percent of the gross national product.
BILL MOYERS: And what’s the threat from an oligarchy of this size and scale?
SIMON JOHNSON: They can distort the system, Bill. They can change the rules of the game to favor themselves. And unfortunately, the way it works in modern finance is when the rules favor you, you go out and you take a lot of risk. And you blow up from time to time, because it’s not your problem. When it blows up, it’s the taxpayer and it’s the government that has to sort it out.
BILL MOYERS: So, you’re not kidding when you say it’s an oligarchy?
JAMES KWAK: Exactly.

unspinning healthcare reform and exposing the US healthcare oligarchy

Editors note: An oligarchy (Greek Ὀλιγαρχία, Oligarkhía) (oligocracy) is a form of government in which power effectively rests with a small elite segment of society.

Healthcare in America today is delivered by an exclusive club. This exclusive club consists of providers, hospitals, insurers and big pharma. Big pharma funds the FDA which acts as a wholly owned subsidiary.

Over 3,300 lobbyists have descended on Washington to to throw money at politicians for votes specifically on “healthcare reform”, thus ensuring the interests and profits of the healthcare oligarchy are upheld.

Over the past 40 years, the cost of healthcare in America has risen at an annual rate of approximately 12 percent. This is the root of the healthcare crisis in America. $100 dollars spent on healthcare 40 years ago increasing at an annual rate of 12 percent costs $9,300 dollars today. During this same 40 year period, $100 dollars in average income has increased to about $220.

The simple fact is that the cost of healthcare has risen at a greatly exaggerated rate relative to the cost of everything else. The rate of increase has been so dramatic relative to income that the costs are now an impossible burden on society.

Two thirds of all personal bankruptcies in America today are due to illness requiring major medical treatment. 78% of those people had medical insurance.

Over the past several decades, Americans have been paying more, getting less, and the enormous profits generated by Americans paying more and getting less have lined the pockets of but a few. Furthermore, there is an economic incentive to overtreat by prescribing unnecessary drugs, ordering expensive tests, and undergoing ineffective treatments. This has the effect of increasing patient costs and unnecessarily increasing risks to patients from side effects of drugs, tests and procedures that were ordered not out of necessity, but out of greed from our elitist providers. Enormously profitable cholesterol lowering drugs have been pushed upon the population by big pharma for decades under the auspices of preventative treatment. Now decades later, we find that not only are the drugs ineffective, they substantially increase the risk of death and disease from other causes. This is not medicine. It’s legalized drug pushing to maximize corporate profits at the expense of their trusting victims. A tragic error? Statistically improbable when we look at the volume of so called preventative drugs pushed on the population in the past several decades which were later pulled from the market because they killed or injured healthy people.

In my city, the CEO of the hospital drives a Rolls Royce. We recently saw an orthopedic specialist to give an opinion by reading an xray. We gave him the CD, he loaded it into his computer, and he spent a total of 10 minutes with us. The cost? $600. That’s $3,600 an hour for giving opinions.  The point is that the healthcare system in America as it stands today is enriching a few at the expense of the many, and at the expense of the sick.  This is not healthcare, it’s racketeering and profiteering from illness and injury. Capitalism? No. Powerful special interest cartels, yes. The only thing that has been capitalized on is the inherent willingness of sick people and their families to spend everything they have and go into debt to save themselves. The healthcare system in America today has many, if not all of the attributes of organized crime.

Furthermore, when analyzed on a price performance basis, although the costs have skyrocketed relative to everything else, the average life expectancy of Americans has gone down, and quality of life studies show that Americans are less healthy overall today and on a declining trend. The system has become impossibly unaffordable, and at the same time delivered a lower quality product as measured by longevity and quality of life. The system, collectively, as a whole, has become a wealth confiscation mechanism, siphoning off the wealth of the citizens and depositing it with a small group of elitist oligarchs.

In recent years, we have seen the development of a phenomenon called “medical tourism” where the costs of treatment in foreign countries is so much lower relative to the US, that US citizens are traveling to places such as India, staying in a five star hotel, receiving first rate treatment for major medical procedures, and then returning to the US still for far less than the cost of the medical treatment or procedure here in the US.  How is this possible?

Clearly something is systemically wrong with the US healthcare system.

Today one in ten of the adult population in America have diabetes and take on the average six different expensive drugs as a result. One in 100 children have autism. Studies have shown that the highest cause of death in America is being admitted to the healthcare system. The list goes on and on but plotted as price vs performance, it can be easily argued that Americans are paying more and getting less, that the system is not competitive, and it is siphoning off the wealth of the citizens at an unsustainable rate.

Why?

To answer that question, we need to ask the question, what mechanism is in place to contain healthcare costs balanced against the demand side of people willing to pay whatever they have to pay to save, cure or treat themselves.

In a free market, with competition, one would expect healthcare costs to rise only at the baseline rate of inflation. Healthcare however is not a free market. There are 4 distinct groups, each having enormous lobbies in Washington, and there is effectively no competition because barriers to entry have been erected.

  • providers (represented by the AMA and ADA)
  • big pharma (funded and represented by the FDA, lobbied by Hill & Knowlton and tens of other powerful lobbying firms)
  • medical insurers (represented by “America’s Health Insurance Plans” and other lobbies)
  • hospitals (represented by “American Hospital Association reps” “the Federation of American Hospitals” and others)

In other words, this is not a free market. There are 4 distinct cartels, each with powerful lobbies, and competition outside of those four groups is effectively banned.

Given a monopolistic supply curve and an inelastic demand curve, the cartel can effectively charge whatever price they want without reducing demand. They can charge up to the point where the society is unable to pay. This system has reached that point and then some.

As a result of this, any sort of “reform” can be guaranteed one thing. Each of these 4 lobbies will pay money to lawmakers to ensure their interests are upheld. Interestingly, those interests all involve maximizing their own profitability. If the providers, big pharma, insurers, and treatment centers are all maximizing their profitability, the flip side of that is that they are delivering decreased price performance…ie a higher cost and lower quality care. Their maximizing of profits ensures a declining standard of care and ever increasing costs. Interestingly, this lines up exactly with what can be documented using the historical data.

Where does that leave us?

It leaves us with a broken healthcare system. It is a broken system because the system itself after 40 years of annual double digit cost increases now collectively requires more money than is available to feed it.

It is not going to be fixed because of corruption. The lobbies will ensure that every vote on any kind of reform is paid for in advance. In come cases, the lobbies are even writing the reform and the lawmakers are just rubber stamping it without even reading it. It doesn’t matter because it’s all been purchased. The votes have been purchased and the wording in the reform has been purchased. The corporate media is running interference by trying to paint it as a left vs right political issue. It isn’t. It’s the criminal corruption of an entire industry who effectively bribes Washington to get what they want.

So what about the future of healthcare in America?

In an introspective look, I wrote that the only thing you can be sure of regarding healthcare reform is that you will pay more and get less. The lobbies will ensure that as they endeavor to maximize their profitability. One would expect to see the total size of the four groups decrease, but for prices to continue to rise. It will be a dysfunctional system with shortages of care, high prices, and a good percentage of the people going bankrupt as an unfortunate result of getting sick and entering into it.

Medical problems were behind two-thirds of personal bankruptcies in 2007. And that was before the economic crisis.

Americans filed for bankruptcy at a rate of 6,020 per day in May, reports Credit Slip’s Bob Lawless. That’s the first time the 6,000-per-day mark has been broken since the passing of the 2005 bankruptcy law, which made it hard for Americans to seek relief from their debts. In related bankruptcy news, the results of a study to be published in the August issue of the American Journal of Medicine show that “medical problems contributed to nearly two-thirds (62.1 percent) of all bankruptcies in 2007.” More strikingly — “between 2001 and 2007, the proportion of all bankruptcies attributable to medical problems rose by 49.6 percent.” (Found via Mark Thoma.

Six Lobbyists Per Lawmaker Work on Health Overhaul
By Jonathan D. Salant and Lizzie O’Leary
Aug. 14 (Bloomberg) — If there is any doubt that President Barack Obama’s plan to overhaul U.S. health care is the hottest topic in Congress, just ask the 3,300 lobbyists who have lined up to work on the issue. That’s six lobbyists for each of the 535 members of the House and Senate, according to Senate records, and three times the number of people registered to lobby on defense. More than 1,500 organizations have health-care lobbyists, and about three more are signing up each day. Every one of the 10 biggest lobbying firms by revenue is involved in an effort that could affect 17 percent of the U.S. economy. These groups spent $263.4 million on lobbying during the first six months of 2009, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, a Washington-based research group, more than any other industry. They spent $241.4 million during the same period of 2008. Drugmakers alone spent $134.5 million, 64 percent more than the next biggest spenders, oil and gas companies.

Statins: The side effects ‘are worse than feared’
By Jenny Hope
Last updated at 10:02 AM on 21st May 2010
The side effects of statins can be far worse than previously thought, a study suggests. For the first time, the level of harm posed by the cholesterol-lowering drugs has been quantified by researchers. They found some users are much more likely to suffer liver dysfunction, acute kidney failure, cataracts and muscle damage known as myopathy. For some patients, the risk is eight times higher than among those not taking statins. Overall, the risk of myopathy – which may be irreversible – is six  times higher for men on statins and three times higher for women.

the left vs right smokescreen

Why are 300 million individuals being conveniently divided into two divisive black and white categories that don’t fit the majority of people to begin with?

“Left” vs “Right”,  “Liberal” versus “Conservative”.  This  simple minded paradigm is involuntarily hoisted on Americans by the corporate media while at the same time both parties have sold out the population to the multinational corporations, banks and special interests who run Washington D.C.  To think that every American can be divided into one of two simple categories represents a mass delusion concocted and promoted by the media solely for the purpose of distraction and avoidance of discussing real issues that affect all Americans while the country is looted and power is consolidated.

The fact is that most people may simultaneously hold so called “left” or “right” views depending on any one particular issue. Furthermore, many of the most important and pressing issues in America today are neither “left”, or “right” issues but common issues for every citizen in America and yet Americans are coerced into this stupid binary dance every day, detached from the reality that they are all are being used to divide and conquer the nation. Americans  like well trained seals myopically  beat their liberal/conservative drum of futile self -righteous indignation, while the country has been stolen out from under the people.  It’s pathetic. You are being used.

Now is the part where you, the reader, are supposed to start getting it….

The vast majority of Americans are centrists in the sense that they hold views that are not extreme.  Division among left and right stems from a period when the Republican party favored small limited government and the Democrats favored big government. Now however, both parties represent the latter wrapped in a top down globalist agenda. The President de jour is a political puppet…a bus driver…a mascott…doing what he’s told by the international money interests.

Today there is effectively one party in America and they are all corporatists. Politicians are  loyal only to the money which put them there and keeps them there. The rhetoric may still differ to a tone deaf and disinformed population, but the actions of both parties are virtually identical. The one thing they do have in common is that neither party represents the will of the people. Instead, they represent the will of the corporations and special interests who bought and paid for their votes on all important issues in advance.

There are many important issues that never even make it into public discourse. Issues that do not fit left or right, like a government that has now been in the longest war in US history in the black hole of Afghanistan. Like a Government that is unable to end a war of choice in Iraq where there they have built a US “Embassy” so large it can be seen from outer space. This at the same time as 10 percent of the population have been reduced to subsisting on food stamps, the real unemployment rate is over 20 percent, there are tent cities across America, and people are living in their cars. According to a recent poll, only 21 percent of the American people believe the government has the authority to govern. Is the collapse of US industry and manufacturing a left or right issue? The US doesn’t make anything any more, the industry and the housing are owned by the banking system and the government,  and in the smokescreen their media will all bounce back and forth between blaming the “left” or the “right” for all of this.

Go Ahead, Argue Away, Serfs

Americans are sitting on the couch with their chips and beer while Washington and the Pentagon have bankrupted the treasury and sent our sons and daughters into the meat grinders Iraq and Afghanistan for WMD’s and connections to 9/11 that did not exist.  Even after overwhelming evidence that the pro war propaganda was manufactured, the serfs keep buying into the brain dead notion that somehow, these wars are for the freedom of America.

The fact is that your childrens blood is being used to grease a corrupt, out of control, now bankrupt empire in wars of conquest. Your money, financial security and your future has been devoured by Wall St. and the Federal Reserve, with collusion from the corrupt cretins who claim to be the people’s representatives. Your standard of living is rapidly eroding into a kings and serfs society as the middle class is becoming extinct. The people? The people don’t have much to say about it because they are apparently too busy arguing among themselves. How convenient for the select few who own Washington and the media and have consolidated all the wealth.

The majority of American people want the government to take care of the roads, maintain the state parks, provide good schools, etc. and otherwise stay out of the way so they can live their lives and pursue happiness. Neither party represents that today. Both parties represent big government, big spending, big favors for the money interests and disregard for the people they are ostensibly representing. “Left vs right”  is merely a convenient tool for the elite to keep people arguing among themselves and to avoid discussing the real issues like a corporatist takeover of the political body.  If there was any truth in advertising, the two political divisions would be “the people” (99.9 percent of the population) and “the elite” (0.1 percent of the population).

The parties today stand for nothing except moral bankruptcy, empty promises and no accountability. They represent self importance, patronizing, greed, corruption and malfeasance. Both political parties today regardless of what they call themselves, do not represent any interests except the interests who have bought and paid for their votes in advance.

Any U.S. politician today who doesn’t kowtow to the money interests, bankers, and globalists  is promptly assassinated by their corporate media, wholly owned and controlled by those interests.

Democrats? Republicans? Wake up. This is a one party system in drag. The political body all the way up to and including the President dance like puppets for the Straussian elitist, globalist, corporate agenda. As a result America is rapidly turning into a kings and serfs society where the one thing the people DO have in common is no voice.

No one is paying any attention to what is really going on, because it’s all supposed to come down to left vs right in a grand smokescreen which obscures the real issues. The fact is that we have had left and right in power for the past decade and the only thing they have in common is wanton disregard for the will and interests of the people. Instead the political body is consumed and controlled by the 0.1 percent who control the money. The corporate media ensures that people are arguing among themselves while the theft of the people’s wealth happens right out in the open.

“And the banks — hard to believe in a time when we’re facing a banking crisis that many of the banks created — are still the most powerful lobby on Capitol Hill. And they frankly own the place.” – Senator Dick Durbin 2009

So this leads to an interesting predicament, where the real issues like the country being indebted to a point where there future labor is all spoken for and then some are not debated or discussed in a serious way. The elimination of the middle class in America..this is not a left or right issue, this is an issue of wealth transfer from the citizens to the elite. All the important issues are banned because the people who are controlling this thing some people still refer to as a democracy or a republic want it to be banned.

The people are supposed to be arguing among themselves about left vs right and looking in caves for Osama Bin Hiding, while the oligarchs have their way and loot your country. There is no middle class in America today. The wealth has been transferred from the people to the oligarchs, in a sophisticated shell game where the money disappeared from the people’s savings, and that money was re created on behalf of the people and given out to guess who?

Not you.

So the left vs right issue in America is a smokescreen for a herd of voiceless dumbbells who are told what they are supposed to believe by six people who control 96 percent of the media that americans consume. The same people who go to davos to consort with the people who are charging you 30 percent interest on your credit card and giving you 1 percent on your savings. The same people who have lobbied your representative to sell poison as food. How nitwitted does anyone need to be to go along with that?  If that sounds extreme then what about this, and this.

Tea Party? A Tea Party for Forrest Gump maybe. Your Tea Party will be sponsored by guess who? The same people who control all the other politicians votes on everything.

In the category of things I am sad to say…

I’m sad to say that the people have been had. Go ahead and argue about (some dumb thing) while your future and your childrens future has already been confiscated by the remaining big money interests who control everything. There is actually a dictionary term for this and it isn’t conspiracy theory, it’s absolute corruption.  There is no way to get rid of it.  It has to fail on it’s own. It is in the process of doing so now.

Already today according to recent polls, only 8 percent of Americans believe they have any representation at all, and yet at the same time find themselves powerless affect change. The last candidate was promoted with a clever platform of change. The next puppet candidate put forth by the people who control all the money and power is going to need a new slogan. I would suggest…

You are screwed.

In this case, the US has 120 trillion or so in obligations on 2 trillion or so in current income. There’s a word for that which is called bankrupt. Caveat Emptor.

Sixty-five percent (65%) of voters nationwide now hold populist, or Mainstream, views of government. That’s up from 62% last September and 55% last March. Mainstream Americans tend to trust the wisdom of the crowd more than their political leaders and are skeptical of both big government and big business (see crosstabs). While Republicans and unaffiliated voters are more likely to hold Mainstream views than Democrats, a majority of those in the president’s party (51%) hold such views. Only four percent (4%) now support the Political Class. These voters tend to trust political leaders more than the public at large and are far less skeptical about government.
