Making the World Safe….for Bankers

“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.”  –Thomas Edison
 
 

 

International bankers live in fear.

Not of starvation, disease or war. These are the concerns of children in the Third World.

Bankers are terrified we might object to paying them billions each year in interest for money they create out of nothing, guaranteed by our taxes. (The Federal Reserve Board, a private cartel of mostly foreign banks, finagled this monopoly in 1913.)

The bankers are frightened that, like the homeless man’s dog, we might say, “I can do this myself.”

They are scared the government might go even further and “default” on trillions of make-believe “debt.”

They are frightened of losing “control.” They toss and turn at night.

In order to sleep more soundly, the bankers have taken “steps.”

These precautions help us to understand the world we live in, why it is becoming safer for bankers but less safe and more bizarre for everyone else.

First, people who own money machines tend to have a lot of friends. The bankers helped their friends establish monopolies in oil, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, transportation, media,etc. and took a healthy stake. As you can imagine, these people are thick as thieves. Lawyers, journalists and intellectuals all vie for a piece of the action. (Servicing this cartel of cartels is what passes for “success” these days.)

The bankers’ first precaution is to buy all the politicians. The second is to buy the major media outlets in order to promote the illusion politicians make decisions and represent our interests. The third precaution is to take control of the education system, ensuring that people stop thinking at an early age.

Then the bankers use the government and media to convince us that religion, nationalism and nuclear family are unfashionable, and we want what they want.

We “want” world government (“globalization”). The bankers need to eliminate nation states, freedom and democracy in order to streamline their business and consolidate their power. The UN, the IMF and World Bank, — glorified loan sharks and collectors — will make the laws.

We “want” secularism and the separation of church and state. Even though we were fine with Christianity and Christian values for centuries, the bankers don’t want any authority to challenge their satanic decree.

We “want” diversity. Countries are not allowed to maintain their national identities or traditions. Last Christmas, my provincial Premier tried to rename the Christmas tree at the legislature a “multicultural tree.” Diversity is respecting every culture but our own. Every nation must be heterogeneous as a box of Smarties — no one in a position to challenge the bankers.

Or take “feminism.” Masquerading as equal rights for women, this ideology is designed to spread lesbian dysfunction. If women focus on careers, it means they give less importance to husband and children. They have fewer or no children who will be raised in state day cares.

Under the guise of “womens” and   “gay” rights we are being re engineered to behave like homosexuals, easier to control. Psychological and biological differences between men and women are not “stereotypes.” But signatories to the latest UN “CEDAW” Convention ( passed by the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee) will be required to “take all appropriate measures to modify all social and cultural patterns of conduct of men and women.” (Article 5)

This kind of Communist-inspired social engineering is simply persecution of heterosexuals. It is intended to arrest our natural development: the birth rate has halved while the divorce rate has doubled. An army of highly paid lawyers, social workers and bureaucrats treat the casualties. These self-serving do-gooders are the bankers’ biggest constituency.

People –stunted, love-starved, sex-obsessed — without family, religious or national identity, are easy to control. (They’ll join anything; they’re looking for a family.) But in case of resistance, the bankers have created a bogeyman, “terrorism” to justify a huge security apparatus.

The Office of Homeland Security is designed to control us — the domestic population. Why would this be necessary? We’re “in debt” trillions of dollars and the bankers intend that we pay. One day they will take away our toys. In case that’s a problem, an Orwellian police state will be in place. But first,the Muslims must be subjugated and robbed.

Talking about the United States as if it were an independent country is silly. American politicians pawned U.S. sovereignty in 1913. Ever since, U.S. soldiers have been bullyboys for international bankers, and nothing else.


SUPERPOWER AS BANKER GO’FER

The American taxpayer and soldier made the First World War possible. It started just six months after the establishment of the “Fed”. Its purpose was to increase debt, cripple the great European nation states, slaughter a generation, and establish two of the bankers’ pet projects: Communism (Russia) and Zionism (Palestine.) After the war ended, banker world government — The League of Nations (a.k.a., “The League to Enforce Peace”) was established.

The US didn’t enter the Second World War in Dec. 1941 to save Western Civilization. England had stood alone against Germany for more than two years. The U.S. entered the war just six months after Hitler attacked Russia. The purpose was to save Communism! [I am indebted to A.K. Chesterton (“The New Unhappy Lords,” 1969) for this insight] For the same reason, the USSR got $5 billion in U.S. lend-lease after the war ended.

After the smoke cleared, Communists instead of Nazis tyrannized Eastern Europe. Soviet agents/ US diplomats Alger Hiss and Harry Hopkins established the United Nations on land donated by John D. Rockefeller. One of the UN’s first acts was to create the State of Israel.

Ben Hecht (in A Child of the Century) wrote “the Twentieth Century was cut off at its knees by World War One.” Before committing suicide in 1942, Stefan Zweig (The World of Yesterday) spoke in the same tones about the demise of Western Civilization.

The planet has been hijacked. Our leaders are dupes, opportunists, traitors or all three. Almost everything we know about modern history is a hoax. A stench of moral compromise hangs over our public and cultural life. Anything promoted by the media, education, or government is suspect. This is what happens when we deny Moral Order i.e. God.

This is what our children will inherit, a world that is safe … for international bankers.

Ancient Soul of Iran

Persia – National Geographic Magazine

July 23, 2008

One of the great crimes committed against the people of Iraq was the looting of the Baghdad Museum and the destruction of many important ancient sites inside Iraq.

As the drums beat for more war in Iran, there is a valid concern that Iran’s ancient archeological sites face risk of destruction. I agree. And more to the point, I think that destruction of ancient sites is deliberate policy.

Egypt is literally littered with the ruins of the ancient temples and palaces of her rulers. As much as has been found, it is estimated that only 1/3 of Egypt’s archeological wonders have been uncovered. A newly discovered temple was uncovered while digging a sewer line, and a cache of finely preserved mummies was literally stumbled over by a cow in a pasture.

Iraq’s ancient heritage was enshrined in its ancient sites and museum. As a result of the war, many of those sites have been damaged or destroyed. Part of the ancient city or Ur now lies underneath a US air base runway. The treasures of the museum have only partly been recovered. The treasures from the looted archaeological sites have been scattered to the world.

Now we take aim at Persia, and as the illustrations in this National Geographic article show, there is a rich cultural heritage of artifacts and ancient sites facing the bombs.

All of this wealth of archaeological treasures must of course annoy Israel. We are raised from birth with Old Testament tales of the greatness of the ancient Israelites, of the powerful kingdoms of Solomon and David and the first temple. Yet Israel, while rich in antiquities, is almost totally devoid of artifacts from this supposedly glorious time in her history. The existence of the fabled First Temple was supported with just two artifacts, a carved staff ornament in the shape of a pomegranate and the Jehoash tablet. Both of these artifacts have been exposed as frauds. We are told that once there was a magnificent temple on that hill, but it “all went away.” The wonders emerging from the soil of Egypt, Iraq, and Iran serve as a constant reminder that ancient buildings of such a scale as we are told the First Temple was simply do not vanish without a trace.

There is considerable reason to suspect that the tales told in the Old Testament are just that; tales. The Bible is not science, it is the collected stories of a primitive tribal people telling each other how important they are. And like fishermen talking about the won that got away, or Ramses with his temple carvings of the did-not-really-happen victory over the Hittites at Kadesh, the writers of the ancient testaments assumed that the people they were telling stories to had no way to verify the claims for themselves. So “embellishment” was a low-risk activity.

We do know from the available archaeological evidence that the Exodus probably actually happened to the Hyksos, not the Israelites. We know that the story of Moses is suspect because no Egyptian princess would hide a Hebrew child inside Pharaoh’s household, then give the kid a Hebrew name (“Moses” is actually an Egyptian title meaning “Prince” and is included in the names of many Pharaoh’s names such as Tut-Moses, Ah-Moses, Ra-Moses (Ramses) etc.) But a good story is a good story and the writers of the ancient texts were probably not thinking much further into the future than the guys who pen the “Celebrity dates space alien” stories you see at supermarket checkout lines. The fact that the celebrity is a real person does not prove the space alien exists. It’s just a story.

But, over time, entire religions with attendant wealth and power structures have been built on the premise that these stories really happened exactly as written. And today, here in the 21st century world, technology has started to catch up with these ancient legends and call many of them into doubt.

So, for a nation that justifies its existence on the writings of the Old Torah, the plethora of sites and artifacts confirming the ancient histories of Egypt, Iraq, Iran, etc. etc. etc. must seem a dire political threat for a nation whose own ancient history seems to have left little if any traces.

In that context, the strange behavior of the US military which posted guards around the Iraq oil ministry while leaving the Baghdad museum unguarded suddenly starts to make sense, if the supporters of a very insecure nation decide that leveling the archaeological playing field is preferable to allowing the obvious disparity in archaeological proofs of claimed ancient histories to stand clear in the world’s view!

What is Behind Global Warming?

The Cry of Global Warming

Al Gore has been promoting this doom and gloom, global warming claptrap. The MSM too has been in lockstep. One might be forgiven for thinking that Al is just jumping onto the bandwagon of opportunism to promote himself. But consider this…

From the horse’s mouth…

” Our Advisory Board, convened by our Chairman the Hon. Al Gore, helps set our long-term thematic research agenda into global sustainability issues, including climate change, poverty and development, ecosystem services and biodiversity, water scarcity, pandemics, demographics and migration, and urbanization.”
http://www.generationim.com/

Mr Gore is certainly putting his money where his mouth is. In 2004 he teamed up with David Blood, former chief executive of Goldman Sachs Asset Management, to create Generation Investment Management, a long only investment firm where …“We’re all about picking great companies at the right price,” http://www.generationim.com/media/pdf-ft-30-04-07.pdf

Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers [KPCB], with offices and partners in US and China, “…is actively working with entrepreneurs to solve our climate crisis. To accelerate our solutions, Al Gore has joined KPCB as a partner, and KPCB has formed an alliance with Gore’s Generation Inbvestment Management. The combined network, expertise,vision and global reach of Gore, Generation and KPCB will help our entrepreneurs change the world. “

One can be sure that the ‘carbon’ cry by Al Gore will be worth billions to people like him, but becomes an indirect tax and burden to ordinary people. Therein lies a lot of truth and motivation behind the cry of global warming.
