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.

the corporate media’s continued de legitimization of itself

“Our job is to give people not what they want, but what we decide they ought to have.”- Richard Salent, Former President CBS News.

As noted in a citizens guide to understanding corporate media propaganda techniques, today six global mega corporations control all the media consumed by Americans in the form of Television, Radio, Movies, Music, Newspapers, Magazines and any other form of media outside the internet. For a decade or more, this elitist media mogul cartel has enjoyed a complete monopoly on news and information for the mainstream. The “wrong” ideas, information or opinions have simply been edited out, buried or attacked.

As the internet has come of age however, now people have an alternative to all media produced by a small cabal. While it is arguable that the vast majority of all populations are still programmed by Television, this is changing. Today there is an ever increasing long list of news from the emerging alternative media via blogs, video and audio interviews, forums, messages etc.  Statistics show that more and more people are consuming their news and information from the internet.

One of the most important aspects of this change is a yardstick from which to measure the accuracy of the information being dispensed (and even more importantly not being dispensed) by the media cartel. If day in and day out you are reading news, information and ideas not presented by the cartel, an awareness begins to develop that there is a concerted attempt to control the information flow, attitudes and reality of the information consuming public. A level of distrust begins and as an individual,  an awareness sets in that you are being repeatedly lied to or programmed, with intent. This awareness transcends politics and reveals that the agenda is not one of left or right, but one of the personal agendas of the moguls who own and control the very few, very large media corporations.

Arguably, the most powerful people in the world today are the small cartel of owners of the corporate media. They can make or break politicians of their choosing. They can program the attitudes of the general public. You will believe what they want you to believe through sophisticated dealing of propaganda. Their power has become so concentrated and so awesome, the media moguls have become accustomed to it as if it is an entitlement that goes with the money and power of the positions. It is flaunted in quotes by the moguls themselves.

The important point is this. If you are an internet aware news and information consumer, then you are also aware of the complete failure of the corporate media to cover one important story after another. You are aware of the bias injected into stories they do cover. Each example becomes just one entry in a long line of corporate media self de legitimization.

As people become aware of the corporate bias because of a standard from which to measure against, consumers will, and they are, going elsewhere. Furthermore, with news and information from the private sector being increasingly available and free, this challenges the business model of paid for news and information.

There are a lot of reasons often cited for the decline of the bottom line of the corporate media oligarchy, but self de legitimization is an increasingly important factor as a greater percentage of the worlds population seek free news and information from other sources. The corporate media is rendering itself obsolete. They are being exposed as liars or shills for corporations, special interests, big government and big banking. They are not going to have a viable business model for selling lies and omission as news, because people are unwilling to pay for it.

Good riddance. They have no one to blame but themselves.

Fox “news” continues CBS, ABC, CNN propaganda to attack Iran: today’s CIA Operation Mockingbird
April 6
LA County Nonpartisan Examiner
Carl Herman
In the video clip from Fox below, Bill Kristol advocates US military attack on Iran because he predicts that Israel will attack Iran. This is propaganda for an unlawful war for the following “emperor has no clothes” obvious reasons. Fox “reporting” is also a manipulative variation of the same war drone I’ve documented from CBS, ABC, and CNN.* The US-created treaty of the UN legally forbids armed attack unless a nation’s government is attacking the US or there is imminent threat of attack. IAEA confirms all of Iran’s nuclear material is used for legal energy and medical isotopes; there is no threat of an attack from Iran. Therefore, US military attack is an unlawful War of Aggression; the worst crime a nation can commit, and in violation of US treaty and the US Constitution. All US military have an oath to support and defend the US Constitution and trained to refuse unlawful orders. Those with authority are obligated to arrest those who issue unlawful orders. The end of Wars of Aggression is the victory of all Americans who sacrificed in WW2. Fox allows Mr. Kristol’s advocacy of unlawful war and rejection of this victory for peace. Fox’s lie of omission to not discuss the laws of war is not accidental; it is war propaganda.

U.S. Troops Apologize For Wikileaks Massacre Video

Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet.com
Monday, April 20, 2010
Former U.S. Army specialists Josh Stieber and Ethan McCord have now publicly apologized for the massacre, expressing in an open letter to the Iraqi people their sorrow at the incident while pointing out that it represents just one example of the brutal suffering inflicted on the Iraqis since the March 2003 invasion. “We are both soldiers who occupied your neighborhood for 14 months. Ethan McCord pulled your daughter and son from the van, and when doing so, saw the faces of his own children back home. Josh Stieber was in the same company but was not there that day, though he contributed to the your pain, and the pain of your community on many other occasions,” states the letter. “We have been speaking to whoever will listen, telling them that what was shown in the Wikileaks video only begins to depict the suffering we have created. From our own experiences, and the experiences of other veterans we have talked to, we know that the acts depicted in this video are everyday occurrences of this war: this is the nature of how U.S.-led wars are carried out in this region.”

who owns the Federal Reserve and why don’t you know?

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

  • 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.

In Deception and Abuse at the Fed, Robert Auerbach, a former banking committee investigator, recounts major instances of Fed mismanagement and abuse of power that were exposed by Rep. Gonzalez, including:
* 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

“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

“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

“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

“The real rulers in Washington are invisible, and exercise power from behind the scenes.” Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter, 1952
Fifty men have run America, and thats a high figure.” Joseph Kennedy, father of JFK, in the July 26th, l936 issue of The New York Times.
“The Trilateral Commission is intended to be the vehicle for multinational consolidation of the commercial and banking interests by seizing control of the political government of the United States. The Trilateral Commission represents a skillful, coordinated effort to seize control and consolidate the four centers of power political, monetary, intellectual and ecclesiastical. What the Trilateral Commission intends is to create a worldwide economic power superior to the political governments of the nationstates involved. As managers and creators of the system, they will rule the future.” U.S. Senator Barry Goldwater in his l964 book: With No Apologies.
“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 case for government by elites is irrefutable.” Senator William Fulbright, Former chairman of the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee, stated at a 1963 symposium entitled: The Elite and the Electorate – Is Government by the People Possible?

“We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order.”  David Rockefeller

“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 Council on Foreign Relations is “the establishment.” Not only does it have influence and power in key decision-making positions at the highest levels of government to apply pressure from above, but it also announces and uses individuals and groups to bring pressure from below, to justify the high level decisions for converting the U.S. from a sovereign Constitutional Republic into a servile member state of a one-world dictatorship.” Former Congressman John Rarick 1971

“We are grateful to The Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the work is now much more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national autodetermination practiced in past centuries.” David Rockefeller, founder of the Trilateral Commission, in an address to a meeting of The Trilateral Commission, in June, 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

“Most Americans have no real understanding of the operation of the international money lenders. The accounts of the Federal Reserve System have never been audited. It operates outside the control of Congress and manipulates the credit of the United States” – Sen. Barry Goldwater

“This [Federal Reserve Act] establishes the most gigantic trust on earth. When the President [Wilson} signs this bill, the invisible government of the monetary power will be legalized….the worst legislative crime of the ages is perpetrated by this banking and currency bill.” – Charles A. Lindbergh, Sr. , 1913

“We are not going to achieve a new world order without paying for it in blood as well as in words and money.” Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., in Foreign Affairs (July/August 1995)

“For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure — one world, if you will.

“We are completely dependent on the commercial banks.  Someone has to borrow every dollar we have in circulation, cash or credit. If the banks create ample synthetic money we are prosperous; if not, we starve. We are absolutely without a permanent money system…. It is the most important subject intelligent persons can investigate and reflect upon. It is so important that our present civilization may collapse unless it becomes widely understood and the defects remedied very soon.” – Robert H. Hamphill, Atlanta Federal Reserve Bank

“The matter of a uniform discount rate was discussed and settled at Jekyll Island.”- Paul M. Warburg

“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

Whoever controls the volume of money in any country is absolute master of all industry and commerce.” – James A. Garfield

“If, however, a government refrains from regulations and allows matters to take their course,  essential commodities soon attain a level of price out of the reach of all but the rich, the worthlessness of the money becomes apparent, and the fraud upon the public can be concealed no longer.”John Maynard Keynes, The Economic Consequences of the Peace 1920, page 240

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

“The dirty little secret is that both houses of congress are irrelevant. America’s domestic policy is now being run by Alan Greenspan and the Federal Reserve.

The Financial Oligarchy in the US

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?

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.

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.

https://i0.wp.com/www.globalnewsdaily.com/Puppet%20Obama/images/Obama%20puppet.gif

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.

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.

Editor’s Note: Radio Bikini tells a story of US atomic bomb testing. Archival footage shows soldiers pegging the geiger counter after venturing into the blast zone to do reconissance.  Now 50 years later those who are still alive show the grotesque effects of radioactive isotope exposure. This article will argue that in the same way the effects of this new nuclear technology were not well understood 50 years ago, we face a similar issue today with the pervasiveness of GMO food. This article will present a case that we are poisioning ourselves and the planet, and that it may become both catastrophic and irreversible 50 years from now. Maybe sooner.

At this point in time, there can be no remaining doubt regarding the presumed safety of genetically modified food.

You are a mammal.

A Comparison of the Effects of Three GM Corn Varieties on Mammalian Health
The International Journal of Biological Sciences
Joël Spiroux de Vendômois1, François Roullier1, Dominique Cellier1,2, Gilles-Eric Séralini1,3
Abstract
We present for the first time a comparative analysis of blood and organ system data from trials with rats fed three main commercialized genetically modified (GM) maize (NK 603, MON 810, MON 863), which are present in food and feed in the world. NK 603 has been modified to be tolerant to the broad spectrum herbicide Roundup and thus contains residues of this formulation. MON 810 and MON 863 are engineered to synthesize two different Bt toxins used as insecticides. Approximately 60 different biochemical parameters were classified per organ and measured in serum and urine after 5 and 14 weeks of feeding. GM maize-fed rats were compared first to their respective isogenic or parental non-GM equivalent control groups. This was followed by comparison to six reference groups, which had consumed various other non-GM maize varieties. We applied nonparametric methods, including multiple pairwise comparisons with a False Discovery Rate approach. Principal Component Analysis allowed the investigation of scattering of different factors (sex, weeks of feeding, diet, dose and group). Our analysis clearly reveals for the 3 GMOs new side effects linked with GM maize consumption, which were sex- and often dose-dependent. Effects were mostly associated with the kidney and liver, the dietary detoxifying organs, although different between the 3 GMOs. Other effects were also noticed in the heart, adrenal glands, spleen and haematopoietic system. We conclude that these data highlight signs of hepatorenal toxicity, possibly due to the new pesticides specific to each GM corn. In addition, unintended direct or indirect metabolic consequences of the genetic modification cannot be excluded.

Address

Please note that the study above considers only three varieties of genetically modified corn, all which were proven in the study to cause varying degrees of damage to mammalian health.

The study shows damage to major organ systems of the animals in the trials. Why would we expect the long term result to be any different in  humans?

The most fundamental issue here is an implied assumption that any form of genetic modification to food is presumed to be safe, and therefore does not need to undergo decades of animal and human trials.

Monsanto should not have to vouchsafe the safety of biotech food,” “Our interest is in selling as much of it as possible. Assuring its safety is the FDA’s job.” – Phil Angell, Monsanto’s director of corporate communications

Monsanto’s Government Ties

Other scientific studies continue to roll in documenting adverse health effects from GM food. In the study below, hamsters fed a variety of GMO soybeans lost their reproductive capacity and had hair growing out of their mouths within three generations.

Genetically Modified Soy Linked to Sterility, Infant Mortality in Hamsters

So the presumption of safety, the presumption that any kind of tweak will be safe, is now known to be false. This has the weighty implication that every type of modification that can be made could have a different effect on any organism that consumes it or any ecosystem it exists in.

Even more worrisome are recent studies that show consumption of genetically modified food by mammals causes DNA mutations and alterations in the consuming organism. This is cause for grave concern due to the entirely unpredictable results of man made life forms altering the dna of consuming organisms.

On the environmental side, pesticides from corn genetically modified to produce it’s own pesticides are showing up in fresh water bodies. This is proof that genetic modifications affect the entire ecosystem whether intended or not.

So we have a situation where food which has now proven to be dangerous is being developed with a caviler, careless  attitude by chemical corporations. It is then rubber stamped and immediately released into the global food chain without any long term analysis or testing. The party responsible for oversight and testing  (the FDA) is entirely funded by guess who? The chemical companies and the big pharma oligarchy themselves.

Former Monsanto Exec. Appointed to the Head of the F.D.A.!

While not specifically related to GM food, this article below highlights the actions of the agency which was ostensibly chartered to  protect the consumer. It is arguable that the FDA is an organization which has been entirely corrupted by money and the entities that fund their continued existence. Protecting the consumer is a mission in name only and therefore cannot be relied upon in any way to protect the genetically modified food consuming public.

If You Liked Bovine Growth Hormone, You’ll love Beta Agonists
While researchers and scientists investigate the cause of our diabetes, obesity, asthma and ADHD epidemics, they should ask why the FDA approved a livestock drug banned in 160 nations and responsible for hyperactivity, muscle breakdown and 10 percent mortality in pigs, according to angry farmers who phoned the manufacturer. The beta agonist ractopamine, a repartitioning agent that increases protein synthesis, was recruited for livestock use when researchers found the drug, used in asthma, made mice more muscular says Beef magazine. But unlike the growth promoting antibiotics and hormones used in livestock which are withdrawn as the animal nears slaughter, ractopamine is started as the animal nears slaughter. As much as twenty percent of Paylean, given to pigs for their last 28 days, Optaflexx, given to cattle their last 28 to 42 days and Tomax, given to turkeys their last 7 to 14 days, remains in consumer meat says author and well known veterinarian Michael W. Fox. Though banned in Europe, Taiwan and China–more than 1,700 people were “poisoned” from eating Paylean-fed pigs since 1998 says the Sichuan Pork Trade Chamber of Commerce– ractopamine is used in 45 percent of US pigs says Elanco Animal Health which manufactures all three products. How does a drug marked, “Not for use in humans. Individuals with cardiovascular disease should exercise special caution to avoid exposure. Use protective clothing, impervious gloves, protective eye wear, and a NIOSH-approved dust mask” become “safe” in human food? With no washout period?

Address

Importantly, there is no distinction being made regarding the type of genetic modification.

One type of genetic modification causes plants to internally produce pharmaceutical products (drugs). The DNA of the plants is altered so the plant becomes a miniature and cost effective pharmaceutical producing laboratory.  The obvious problem with this type of genetic modification has already happened. There have already been cases where these pharmaceutical producing crops have unintentionally cross pollinated natural crops, causing formerly natural grains to become drug manufacturing laboratories. This would be entirely unknown to a farmer or consumer, and could only be determined by DNA analysis or other testing of the plant. Once in the wild, genetic fragments of drug producing plants could end up contaminating everything else.

Since we now know that the GM foods tested have strange and unpredictable effects (like hair growing out of the mouth in hamsters), it is quite reasonable to assume that every single type of genetic tweak to nature may have entirely different, unknown and unpredictable consequences.  Editorially speaking, if there ever was a case of monkeys playing with razor blades, this is it. Chemical companies are playing Russian roulette with people’s health and lives, and indeed, the entire planetary ecosystem.

We are now rapidly headed to a situation where “wild” or “natural” crops carry a wide variety of non intentioned, engineered genes as a result of unintentional cross pollination via bees, butterflies, wind and other pollination sources. Since it has been shown that organisms which consume GMO food have alterations in their own DNA, these changes will become ubiquitous and systemic. Everything affects everything.

What is the effect of healthy humans unknowingly eating plants that contain pharmaceutical drugs and other engineered products?

Further compounding this problem for consumers is that the large chemical companies who are pushing these products on the people of the world have lobbies that are so large and so strong, they own the political body.

Despite these long-term and wide-ranging risks, Congress has yet to pass a single law intended to address chemical companies and their GMO tinkering. The chemical companies retain junk scientists to claim their products are safe and run interference. As a result these global multinational chemical companies have a free hand to spread their untested lab creations worldwide, with entirely unknown and dangerous effects. Who will be held responsible 50 years from now when these companies have long since gone out of business and we are left with a problem which has no solution?

Their lobby has proven so powerful that their genetically modified products may show up throughout the food chain, without consumers even being aware this is the case. There are effectively no labeling requirements and GM grains are being used by virtually all major food producers. You are consuming these products,  NOW. Currently, up to 45 percent of U.S. corn is genetically engineered as is 85 percent of soybeans. It has been estimated that 70-75 percent of processed foods on supermarket shelves–from soda to soup, crackers to condiments–contain genetically engineered ingredients.

Is that enough to damage your health or kill you? How much of your DNA can be altered without cause for concern? How will this GMO consumption affect your own offspring? What will the long ranging effects be on the planet and the food chain?  N o   o n e   k n o w s.

So we are risking the health of the entire planet, for what potential benefit? The benefit is that a few ultra rich oligarchs will be able to reap enormous profits from endeavoring to own patents on nature. GMO products have already proven to create more problems than they solve.

The people developing these products are interested in only one thing, maximizing corporate profits,  money and power. Your health, and the fitness of the planet for human habitation has taken a back seat to unmitigated greed and corruption with effectively no oversight and a free hand to inflict their damage on you and the planet. No one speaks for earth.

Summarizing, with each passing day, new untested GMO products are being released into the wild. There is effectively no testing, regulation or oversight. This is a recipe for a future global disaster or more correctly, a disaster in process. Once these engineered organisms have cross pollinated into nature as they are doing right now, there is no effective recall. The damage is done and there is no recourse. Natural, or non genetically altered grains will cease to exist. The DNA of consuming organisms is forever altered. For this reason, we can be assured that the global food chain is becoming toxic. At some point in the future, a global humanitarian catastrophe will result.

  • the products have already been proven dangerous while the assumption is that they are safe
  • new products are being released into the wild and rapidly spreading across the globe, passing their engineered genes to natural crops
  • there is effectively no oversight or testing. The consumer advocate has been corrupted by money
  • the long term effects, side effects and potential undesired effects upon the entire food chain and the planet itself have not even been considered and are entirely unknown

A criminal investigation is warranted.  A trial should be convened for crimes against humanity.

GM Food Safety: Whose Job Is It?
It’s not Monsanto’s job:
“Monsanto should not have to vouchsafe the safety of biotech food. Our interest is in selling as much of it as possible. Assuring its safety is the FDA’s job.” – Phil Angell, Monsanto’s Director of Corporate Communications, in “Playing God In The Garden,” by Michael Pollan, NYTs Magazine, 1998.

Doctors Warn: Avoid Genetically Modified Food
By Jeffrey M. Smith
On May 19th, the American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) called on “Physicians to educate their patients, the medical community, and the public to avoid GM (genetically modified) foods when possible and provide educational materials concerning GM foods and health risks.”[1] They called for a moratorium on GM foods, long-term independent studies, and labeling. AAEM’s position paper stated, “Several animal studies indicate serious health risks associated with GM food,” including infertility, immune problems, accelerated aging, insulin regulation, and changes in major organs and the gastrointestinal system. They conclude, “There is more than a casual association between GM foods and adverse health effects. There is causation,” as defined by recognized scientific criteria. “The strength of association and consistency between GM foods and disease is confirmed in several animal studies.”

Is Monsanto playing fast and loose with Roundup Ready Soybeans in Argentina?

Crying not for Argentina but for lost patent fees, Monsanto’s legal hacks are in European courts suing to block millions of tons of Argentine soybean meal from docking on the continent. Monsanto says that much of the meal crossing the Atlantic to feed Europe’s cows and pigs contains traces of its genetically modified Roundup Ready Soybeans. Known as RR, the soybeans are tweaked to withstand the company’s Roundup herbicide. This resistance lets farmers blanket entire fields with the chemical mixture rather than surgically applying it to kill off weeds. Monsanto holds a patent for the seed in Europe, but not in Argentina, where a dispute over technology rights keeps the U.S.-based agri-giant from collecting technology fees on RR seed sales. By using its European patent to disrupt Argentina’s lucrative soy-meal trade with Europe, the company hopes to strong-arm Argentine farmers into paying up.

Farmers, Others Sue USDA Over Monsanto GMO Alfalfa
Date: 17-Feb-06
Author: Carey Gillam
Opening another front in the battle over genetically modified crops, the lawsuit contends that the US Department of Agriculture improperly is allowing Monsanto Co to sell an herbicide-resistant alfalfa seed while failing to analyse the public health, environmental, and economic consequences of that action. “The USDA failed to do a full environmental review when they deregulated this genetically engineered alfalfa,” said Will Rastov, an attorney for Center for Food Safety, one of the plaintiffs. “They’re going to wreak untold dangers into the environment.” The lawsuit asks the federal court in San Francisco to rescind the USDA’s decision until a full environmental review has been completed. The suit asserts that the genetically modified alfalfa will probably contaminate conventionally grown alfalfa at a fast pace, ultimately forcing farmers to pay for Monsanto’s patented gene technology whether they want the technology or not.

Russia Says Genetically Modified Foods are Harmful
Salem-News.com
Apr-23-2010
Concerning the experiment carried out jointly by the National Association for Gene Security and the Institute of Ecological and Evolutional Problems, Dr. Alexei Surov had this to say. “We selected several groups of hamsters, kept them in pairs in cells and gave them ordinary food as always,” says Alexei Surov. “We did not add anything for one group but the other was fed with soya that contained no GM components, while the third group with some content of Genetically Modified Organisms and the fourth one with increased amount of GMO. We monitored their behavior and how they gain weight and when they give birth to their cubs. Originally, everything went smoothly. However, we noticed quite a serious effect when we selected new pairs from their cubs and continued to feed them as before. These pairs’ growth rate was slower and they reached their sexual maturity more slowly. When we got some of their cubs we formed the new pairs of the third generation. We failed to get cubs from these pairs, which were fed with GM foodstuffs. It was proved that these pairs lost their ability to give birth to their cubs,” Dr. Alexei Surov said. Another surprise was discovered by scientists in hamsters of the third generation. Hair grew in the mouth of the animals that took part in the experiment. It’s unclear why this happened. The researchers cannot understand why a programme of destruction is launched when animals take GMO foodstuffs. They say that this can be neutralized only by ceasing to use these foods.

Monsanto Sues More Small Family Farmers
Percy Schmeiser is a farmer from Saskatchewan Canada, whose Canola fields were contaminated with Monsanto’s genetically engineered Round-Up Ready Canola by pollen from a nearby farm. Monsanto says it doesn’t matter how the contamination took place, and is therefore demanding Schmeiser pay their Technology Fee (the fee farmers must pay to grow Monsanto’s genetically engineered products). According to Schmeiser, “I never had anything to do with Monsanto, outside of buying chemicals. I never signed a contract. If I would go to St. Louis (Monsanto Headquarters) and contaminate their plots – destroy what they have worked on for 40 years – I think I would be put in jail and the key thrown away.” Rodney Nelson’s family farm is being forced into a similar lawsuit by Monsanto.

Scientist: GM food safety testing is “woefully inadequate”
What are the challenges of doing this type of research?
There are two major challenges. First, it is very hard to get GM seed to conduct the research. In order to buy GM seed, you have to go to a licensed seed dealer, and sign a technology licensing agreement, which states that you won’t do any research on the seed, which includes agronomic, health, and environmental research. Also, scientists who try to research health impacts of GM food get harassed and intimidated by people with vested interests in GM technology. I’ve had 10 years of abuse from such people who’ve defamed me, driven me out of a university, and tried to get me fired from jobs. With that kind of intimidation, scientists often decide not to do any research. Vested interests have been trying to find out about research I’m doing. They filed a freedom of information request with the Western Australian government to find out. The government denied their request. It could have ended up in court. My research protocol could have been stolen.

BREAKING NEWS: Alarm on Gene GM Crops: A Previously Unrecognised Effect on GM Plant Development  
Global Research, June 3, 2011
telegraphindia.com
New Delhi, June 2: Indian scientists have discovered that the genetic modification of plants with a gene already used in crops worldwide may severely damage the plants, a surprising finding that may stir a debate on current crop biotechnology science. The scientists at the University of Delhi have shown that inserting a bacterial gene that makes a protein named Cry1Ac into genomes of plants appears to cause developmental defects, growth retardation and sterility in the plants. Several experimental and commercial genetically-modified plants, including GM cotton cultivated in India and other countries, make the Cry1Ac protein which is toxic to some insects. The insects die when they try to eat parts of these GM crops.
