KEY EXCERPTS FROM CARROLL QUIGLEY’S TRAGEDY AND HOPE (1966)

KEY EXCERPTS FROM CARROLL QUIGLEY’S TRAGEDY AND HOPE (1966)

Past is Prologue.  The Key to understanding today, and planning for the future is to look to the past – Howard Nema

“There does exist an international Anglophile network which we may identify as the Round Table Groups. I know of the operations of this network because I have studied it for twenty years and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960’s, to examine its papers and secret records.

I have no aversion to it or to most of its aims and have, for much of my life, been close to it and to many of its instruments. I have objected to a few of its policies but in general my chief difference of opinion is that it wishes to remain unknown, and I believe its role in history is significant enough to be known.”

Quote from Pg. 950 of Carroll Quigley’s Tragedy and Hope: A History In Our Time (1966)

Carroll Quigley was a Jesuit professor of history at Georgetown University from 1941 to 1976.  His writings omit the connections to the Jesuits, the Vatican and the Black Nobility by name, but their power structure is a key component of the Round Table.

Quigley also taught at Princeton and at Harvard, and lectured at the Brookings Institution. He was a frequent lecturer at the U.S. Naval Weapons Laboratory, the Foreign Service Institute, and the Naval College at Norfolk, Virginia.

In 1958, he served as a consultant to the Congressional Select Committee which set up the National Space Agency.   In 1964, he was a consultant at the Navy Post-Graduate School, Monterey, California on Project Seabed.   The project was created to visualize the status of future American weapons systems.

A History of the World in Our Time

Chapter 5European Economic Developments

Commercial Capitalism

Western Civilization is the richest and most powerful social organization ever made by man. One reason for this success has been its economic organization, [which] has passed through six successive stages, of which at least four are called “capitalism.” Each stage created the conditions which tended to bring about the next stage.

The [first stage] of self-sufficient agrarian units (manors) was in a society organized so that its upper ranksthe lords, lay and ecclesiasticalfound their desires for necessities so well met that they sought to exchange their surpluses of necessities for luxuries of remote origin. This gave rise to a trade in foreign luxuries (spices, fine textiles, fine metals) which was the first evidence of the stage of commercial capitalism. In this second stage, mercantile profits and widening markets created a demand for textiles and other goods which could be met only by application of power to production.

This gave the third stage: industrial capitalism. The stage of industrial capitalism soon gave rise to such an insatiable demand for heavy fixed capital, like railroad lines, steel mills, shipyards, and so on, that these investments could not be financed from the profits and private fortunes of individual proprietors. New instruments for financing industry came into existence in the form of limited-liability corporations and investment banks. These were soon in a position to control the chief parts of the industrial system, since they provided capital to it.

This gave rise to financial capitalism. The control of financial capitalism was used to integrate the industrial system into ever-larger units with interlinking financial controls. This made possible a reduction of competition with a resulting increase in profits. As a result, the industrial system soon found that it was again able to finance its own expansion from its own profits, and, with this achievement, financial controls were weakened, and the stage of monopoly capitalism arrived.

In this fifth stage, great industrial units, working together either directly or through cartels and trade associations, were in a position to exploit the majority of the people. The result was a great economic crisis which soon developed into a struggle for control of the statethe minority hoping to use political power to defend their privileged position, the majority hoping to use the state to curtail the power and privileges of the minority. This dualist struggle dwindled with the rise of economic and social pluralism after 1945.

 

The Operations of Banking Were Concealed So They Appeared Difficult to Master

In sum, specialization of economic activities, by breaking up the economic process, had made it possible for people to concentrate on one portion of the process and, by maximizing that portion, to jeopardize the rest. The process was not only broken up into producers, exchangers, and consumers but there were also two kinds of exchangers (one concerned with goods, the other with money), with almost antithetical, short-term, aims. The problems which inevitably arose could be solved and the system reformed only by reference to the system as a whole.

Unfortunately, however, three parts of the system, concerned with the production, transfer, and consumption of goods, were concrete and clearly visible so that almost anyone could grasp them simply by examining them, while the operations of banking and finance were concealed, scattered, and abstract so that they appeared to many to be difficult. To add to this, bankers themselves did everything they could to make their activities more secret and more esoteric. Their activities were reflected in mysterious marks in ledgers which were never opened to the curious outsider.

In the course of time the central fact of the developing economic system, the relationship between goods and money, became clear, at least to bankers. This relationship, the price system, depended upon five things: the supply and the demand for goods, the supply and the demand for money, and the speed of exchange between money and goods.

An increase in three of these (demand for goods, supply of money, speed of circulation) would move the prices of goods up and the value of money down. This inflation was objectionable to bankers, although desirable to producers and merchants. On the other hand, a decrease in the same three items would be deflationary and would please bankers, worry producers and merchants, and delight consumers (who obtained more goods for less money). The other factors worked in the opposite direction, so that an increase in them (supply of goods, demand for money, and slowness of circulation or exchange) would be deflationary [and vice versa].

Such changes of prices, either inflationary or deflationary, have been major forces in history for the last six centuries at least. Over that long period, their power to modify men’s lives and human history has been increasing.

 

Bankers Obsessed With Maintaining Value of Money

Rising prices benefit debtors and injure creditors, while falling prices do the opposite. A debtor called upon to pay a debt at a time when prices are higher than when he contracted the debt must yield up less goods and services than he obtained at the earlier date, on a lower price level when he borrowed the money. A creditor, such as a bank, which has lent moneyequivalent to a certain quantity of goods and serviceson one price level, gets back the same amount of moneybut a smaller quantity of goods and serviceswhen repayment comes at a higher price level, because the money repaid is then less valuable.

This is why bankers, as creditors in money terms, have been obsessed with maintaining the value of money, although the reason they have traditionally given for this obsessionthat “sound money” maintains “business confidence”has been propagandist rather than accurate.

Hundreds of years ago, bankers began to specialize, with the richer and more influential ones associated increasingly with foreign trade and foreign-exchange transactions. Since these were richer and more cosmopolitan and increasingly concerned with questions of political significance, such as stability and debasement of currencies, war and peace, dynastic marriages, and worldwide trading monopolies, they became the financiers and financial advisers of governments.

Moreover, since their relationships with governments were always in monetary terms and not real terms, and since they were always obsessed with the stability of monetary exchanges between one country’s money and another, they used their power and influence to do two things: (1) to get all money and debts expressed in terms of a strictly limited commodityultimately gold; and (2) to get all monetary matters out of the control of governments and political authority, on the ground that they would be handled better by private banking interests.

 

Bankers Create Money Out of Nothing

For generations men had sought to avoid the one drawback of gold, its heaviness, by using pieces of paper to represent specific pieces of gold. We call such pieces of paper gold certificates. Such a certificate entitles its bearer to exchange it for its piece of gold on demand, but in view of the convenience of paper, only a small fraction of certificate holders ever did make such demands.

It early became clear that gold need be held on hand only to the amount needed to cover the fraction of certificates likely to be presented for payment; accordingly, the rest of the gold could be used for business purposes, or, what amounts to the same thing, a volume of certificates could be issued greater than the volume of gold reserved for payment of demands against them. Such an excess volume of paper claims against reserves we now call bank notes.

In effect, this creation of paper claims greater than the reserves available means that bankers were creating money out of nothing. The same thing could be done in another way, not by note-issuing banks but by deposit banks. Deposit bankers discovered that orders and checks drawn against deposits by depositors and given to third persons were often not cashed by the latter but were deposited to their own accounts. Thus there were no actual movements of funds, and payments were made simply by bookkeeping transactions on the accounts.

Accordingly, it was necessary for the banker to keep on hand in actual money … no more than the fraction of deposits likely to be drawn upon and cashed; the rest could be used for loans, and if these loans were made by creating a deposit for the borrower, who in turn would draw checks upon it rather than withdraw it in money, such “created deposits” or loans could also be covered adequately by retaining reserves to only a fraction of their value.

 

The Dynasties of International Bankers

The merchant bankers of London … brought into their financial network the provincial banking centers, organized as commercial banks and savings banks, as well as insurance companies, to form all of these into a single financial system on an international scale which manipulated the quantity and flow of money so that they were able to influence, if not control, governments on one side and industries on the other.

The men who did this, looking backward toward the period of dynastic monarchy in which they had their own roots, aspired to establish dynasties of international bankers and were at least as successful at this as were many of the dynastic political rulers. The greatest of these dynasties, of course, were the descendants of Meyer Amschel Rothschild (1743-1812) of Frankfort, whose male descendants, for at least two generations, generally married first cousins or even nieces.

In concentrating, as we must, on the financial or economic activities of international bankers, we must not totally ignore their other attributes. They were, especially in later generations, cosmopolitan rather than nationalistic. They were usually highly civilized, cultured gentlemen, patrons of education and of the arts, so that today colleges, professorships, opera companies, symphonies, libraries, and museum collections still reflect their munificence. For these purposes they set a pattern of endowed foundations which still surround us today.

 

Bankers Felt Politicians Could Not Be Trusted With the Monetary System

The influence of financial capitalism and of the international bankers who created it was exercised both on business and on governments, but could have done neither if it had not been able to persuade both these to accept two “axioms” of its own ideology. Both of these were based on the assumption that politicians were too weak and too subject to temporary popular pressures to be trusted with control of the money system; accordingly, the sanctity of all values and the soundness of money must be protected in two ways: by basing the value of money on gold and by allowing bankers to control the supply of money. To do this it was necessary to conceal, or even to mislead, both governments and people about the nature of money and its methods of operation.

In most countries the central bank was surrounded closely by the almost invisible private investment banking firms. These, like the planet Mercury, could hardly be seen in the dazzle emitted by the central bank which they, in fact, often dominated. Yet a close observer could hardly fail to notice the close private associations between these private, international bankers and the central bank itself.

Two of the five factors which determined the value of money are the supply and the demand for money. The supply of money in a single country was subject to no centralized, responsible control in most countries over recent centuries. Instead, there were a variety of controls of which some could be influenced by bankers, some could be influenced by the government, and some could hardly be influenced by either.

Central banks can usually vary the amount of money in circulation by “open market operations” or by influencing the discount rates of lesser banks. In open market operations, a central bank buys or sells government bonds in the open market. If it buys, it releases money into the economic system; if it sells it reduces the amount of money in the community. The change is greater than the price paid for the securities [due to the fractional reserve system].

Central banks can also change the quantity of money by influencing the credit policies of other banks. This can be done by various methods, such as changing the re-discount rate or changing reserve requirements. By changing the re-discount rate, we mean the interest rate which central banks charge lesser banks for loans. By raising the re-discount rate the central bank forces the lesser bank to raise its discount rate in order to operate at a profit; such a raise in interest rates tends to reduce the demand for credit and thus the amount of deposits (money). Lowering the re-discount rate permits an opposite result.

The powers of governments over the quantity of money are of various kinds, and include (a) control over a central bank, (b) control over public taxation, and (c) control over public spending. The control of governments over central banks varies greatly from one country to another, but on the whole has been increasing. Since most central banks have been (technically) private institutions, this control is frequently based on custom rather than on law.

The powers of the government over the quantity of money in the community exercised through taxation and public spending are largely independent of banking control. Taxation tends to reduce the amount of money in a community and is usually a deflationary force; government spending tends to increase the amount of money in a community and is usually an inflationary force. The total effects of a government’s policy will depend on which item is greater. An unbalanced budget will be inflationary; a budget with a surplus will be deflationary.

 

Money PowerControlled by International Investment BankersDominates Business and Government

On the whole, in the period up to 1931, bankers, especially the Money Power controlled by the international investment bankers, were able to dominate both business and government. They could dominate business, especially in activities and in areas where industry could not finance its own needs for capital, because investment bankers had the ability to supply or refuse to supply such capital. Thus, Rothschild interests came to dominate many of the railroads of Europe, while Morgan dominated at least 26,000 miles of American railroads.

Such bankers went further than this. In return for flotations of securities of industry, they took seats on the boards of directors of industrial firms, as they had already done on commercial banks, savings banks, insurance firms, and finance companies. From these lesser institutions they funneled capital to enterprises which yielded control and away from those who resisted. These firms were controlled through interlocking directorships, holding companies, and lesser banks. They engineered amalgamations and generally reduced competition, until by the early twentieth century many activities were so monopolized that they could raise their noncompetitive prices above costs to obtain sufficient profits to become self-financing.

But before that stage was reached a relatively small number of bankers were in positions of immense influence in European and American economic life. As early as 1909, Walter Rathenau, who was in a position to know (since he had inherited from his father control of the German General Electric Company and held scores of directorships himself), said, “Three hundred men, all of whom know one another, direct the economic destiny of Europe and choose their successors from among themselves.”

 

The Power of Investment Bankers Over Governments

The power of investment bankers over governments rests on a number of factors, of which the most significant, perhaps, is the need of governments to issue short-term treasury bills as well as long-term government bonds. Just as businessmen go to commercial banks for current capital advances to smooth over the discrepancies between their irregular and intermittent incomes and their periodic and persistent outgoes, so a government has to go to merchant bankers (or institutions controlled by them) to tide over the shallow places caused by irregular tax receipts.

As experts in government bonds, the international bankers not only handled the necessary advances, but provided advice to government officials and, on many occasions, placed their own members in official posts for varied periods to deal with special problems. This is so widely accepted even today that in 1961 a Republican investment banker became Secretary of the Treasury in a Democratic Administration in Washington without significant comment from any direction.

Naturally, the influence of bankers over governments during the age of financial capitalism (roughly 1850-1931) was not something about which anyone talked freely, but it has been admitted frequently enough by those on the inside, especially in England. In 1852 Gladstone, chancellor of the Exchequer, declared, “The hinge of the whole situation was this: the government itself was not to be a substantive power in matters of Finance, but was to leave the Money Power supreme and unquestioned.” On September 26, 1921, The Financial Times wrote, “Half a dozen men at the top of the Big Five Banks could upset the whole fabric of government finance by refraining from renewing Treasury Bills.”

 

Montagu Norman and J. P. Morgan Dominate the Financial World

In addition to their power over government based on government financing and personal influence, bankers could steer governments in ways they wished them to go by other pressures.   Since most government officials felt ignorant of finance, they sought advice from bankers whom they considered to be experts in the field. The history of the last century shows, as we shall see later, that the advice given to governments by bankers, like the advice they gave to industrialists, was consistently good for bankers, but was often disastrous for governments, businessmen, and the people generally.

Such advice could be enforced if necessary by manipulation of exchanges, gold flows, discount rates, and even levels of business activity. The powers of these international bankers reached their peak in the last decade of their supremacy, 1919-1931, when Montagu Norman and J. P. Morgan dominated not only the financial world but international relations and other matters as well.

On November 11, 1927, the Wall Street Journal called Mr. Norman “the currency dictator of Europe.” This was admitted by Mr. Norman himself before the Court of the Bank on March 21, 1930, and before the Macmillan Committee of the House of Commons five days later. On one occasion … Mr. Norman is reported to have said, “I hold the hegemony of the world.” It might be added that Governor Norman rarely acted in major world problems without consulting with J. P. Morgan’s representatives.

 

Chapter 9The British Imperial Crisis

Britain acquired the world’s greatest empire because it possessed certain advantages which other countries lacked. We mention three of these advantages: (1) that it was an island, (2) that it was in the Atlantic, and (3) that its social traditions at home produced the will and the talents for imperial acquisition.

 

Cecil Rhodes Organized a Secret Society in 1891

[Cecil] Rhodes (1853-1902) feverishly exploited the diamond and goldfields of South Africa, rose to be prime minister of the Cape Colony (1890-1896), contributed money to political parties, controlled parliamentary seats both in England and in South Africa, and sought to win a strip of British territory across Africa from the Cape of Good Hope to Egypt and to join these two extremes together with a telegraph line and ultimately with a Cape-to-Cairo Railway.

Rhodes inspired devoted support for his goals from others in South Africa and in England. With financial support from Lord Rothschild and Alfred Beit, he was able to monopolize the diamond mines of South Africa as De Beers Consolidated Mines and to build up a great gold mining enterprise as Consolidated Gold Fields. In the middle 1890’s Rhodes had a personal income of at least a million pounds sterling a year [equivalent to about $100 million a year in current U.S. dollars] which was spent so freely for his mysterious purposes that he was usually overdrawn on his account.

[An] association was formally established on February 5, 1891, when Rhodes and [William] Stead organized a secret society of which Rhodes had been dreaming for sixteen years. In this secret society Rhodes was to be leader; Stead, Brett, and Milner were to form an executive committee; Arthur (Lord) Balfour, (Sir) Harry Johnston, Lord Rothschild, Albert (Lord) Grey, and others were listed as potential members of a “Circle of Initiates”; while there was to be an outer circle known as the “Association of Helpers” (later organized by Milner as the Round Table organization).

In 1919 [Rhodes’ followers] founded the Royal Institute of International Affairs (Chatham House) for which the chief financial supporters were Sir Abe Bailey and the Astor family (owners of The Times). Similar Institutes of International Affairs were established in the chief British dominions and in the United States (where it is known as the Council on Foreign Relations) in the period 1919-1927. The power and influence of this Rhodes-Milner group in British imperial affairs and in foreign policy since 1889, although not widely recognized, can hardly be exaggerated. We might mention as an example that this group dominated The Times from 1890 to 1912, and has controlled it completely since 1912 (except for the years 1919-1922).

In spite of the terms of the Rhodes wills, Rhodes himself was not a racist. Nor was he a political democrat. He worked as easily and as closely with Jews, black natives, or Boers as he did with English. His greatest weakness rested on the fact that his passionate attachment to his goals made him overly tolerant in regard to methods. He did not hesitate to use either bribery or force to attain his ends if he judged they would be effective.

 

Chapter 20The Period of Stabilization, 1922-1930

America Becomes the World’s Greatest Creditor

By 1914 Britain’s supremacy as financial center, as commercial market, as creditor, and as merchant shipper was being threatened. At this critical stage in Britain’s development, the World War occurred. This had a double result as far as this subject is concerned. It forced Britain to postpone indefinitely any reform of her industrial system to adjust it to more modern trends; and it speeded up the development of these trends so that what might have occurred in twenty years was done instead in five.

The war changed the position of the United States in respect to the rest of the world from that of a debtor owing about $3 billion to that of a creditor owed $4 billion. This does not include intergovernmental debts of about $10 billion owed to the United States as a result of the war. At the same time, Britain’s position changed from a creditor owed about $18 billion to a creditor owed about $13.5 billion. In addition, Britain was owed about $8 billion in war debts from her Allies … and owed to the United States war debts of well over $54 billion. Most of these war debts and reparations were sharply reduced after 1920, but the net result for Britain was a drastic change in her position in respect to the United States.

The basic economic organization of the world was modified in other ways. The more backward areas of Europe and the world had been industrialized to a great degree and were unwilling to fall back to a position in which they would obtain industrial products from Britain, Germany, or the United States in return for their raw materials and food. This refusal was made more painful for both sides by the fact that these backward areas had increased their outputs of raw materials and food so greatly that the total could hardly have been sold even if they had been willing to buy all their industrial products from their prewar sources.

The result was a situation where all countries were eager to sell and reluctant to buy, and sought to achieve these mutually irreconcilable ends by setting up subsidies and bounties on exports, tariffs, and restrictions on imports, with disastrous results on world trade.

The only sensible solution to this problem of excessive productive capacity would have been a substantial rise in domestic standards of living, but this would have required a fundamental reapportionment of the national income so that claims to the product of the excess capacity would go to those masses eager to consume, rather than continue to go to the minority desiring to save. Such a reform was rejected by the ruling groups in both “advanced” and “backward” countries, so that this solution was reached only to a relatively small degree in a relatively few countries.

The system of international payments which had worked … before 1914 worked only haltingly after that date, and practically ceased to work at all after 1930. The chief cause of these factors was that neither goods nor money obeyed purely economic forces and did not move as formerly to the areas in which each was most valuable. The chief result was a complete mal-distribution of gold, a condition which became acute after 1928 and which by 1933 had forced most countries off the gold standard.

 

Money Power Seeks to Create a World System of Financial Control in Private Hands Able to Dominate Every Nation on Earth

Pg. 324: 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 to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basle, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world’s central banks which were themselves private corporations.

Each central bank, in the hands of men like Montagu Norman of the Bank of England, Benjamin Strong of the New York Federal Reserve Bank, Charles Rist of the Bank of France, and Hjalmar Schacht of the Reichsbank, sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world.

Pg. 326: Norman (Montagu) had a devoted colleague in Benjamin Strong, the first governor of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Strong owed his career to the favor of the Morgan Bank, especially of Henry P. Davison, who made him secretary of the Bankers Trust Company of New York (in succession to Thomas W. Lamont) in 1904, used him as Morgan’s agent in the banking rearrangements following the crash of 1907, and made him vice-president of the Bankers Trust (still in succession to Lamont) in 1909.

He became governor of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York as the joint nominee of Morgan and of Kuhn, Loeb, and Company in 1914. Two years later, Strong met Norman for the first time, and they at once made an agreement to work in cooperation for the financial practices they both revered.

In the 1920’s, they were determined to use the financial power of Britain and of the United States to force all the major countries of the world to go on the gold standard and to operate it through central banks free from all political control, with all questions of international finance to be settled by agreements by such central banks without interference from governments.

Pg. 326-327: It must not be felt that these heads of the world’s chief central banks were themselves substantive powers in world finance. They were not. Rather, they were the technicians and agents of the dominant investment bankers of their own countries, who had raised them up and were perfectly capable of throwing them down.

The substantive financial powers of the world were in the hands of these investment bankers (also called “international” or “merchant” bankers) who remained largely behind the scenes in their own unincorporated private banks.

These formed a system of international cooperation and national dominance which was more private, more powerful, and more secret than that of their agents in the central banks. This dominance of investment bankers was based on their control over the flows of credit and investment funds in their own countries and throughout the world.

They could dominate the financial and industrial systems of their own countries by their influence over the flow of current funds through bank loans, the discount rate, and the re-discounting of commercial debts; they could dominate governments by their control over current government loans and the play of the international exchanges.

Almost all of this power was exercised by the personal influence and prestige of men who had demonstrated their ability in the past to bring off successful financial coupe, to keep their word, to remain cool in a crisis, and to share their winning opportunities with their associates.

In this system the Rothschilds had been preeminent during much of the nineteenth century, but, at the end of that century, they were being replaced by J. P. Morgan whose central office was in New York, although it was always operated as if it were in London (where it had, indeed, originated as George Peabody and Company in 1838).

 

Norman Was the Commander-in-Chief of the World System of Banking Control

The commander in chief of the world system of banking control was Montagu Norman, Governor of the Bank of England, who was built up by the private bankers to a position where he was regarded as an oracle in all matters of government and business.

In January, 1924, Reginald McKenna, who had been chancellor of the Exchequer in 1915-1916, as chairman of the board of the Midland Bank told its stockholders:

“I am afraid the ordinary citizen will not like to be told that the banks can, and do, create money…. And they who control the credit of the nation direct the policy of Governments and hold in the hollow of their hands the destiny of the people.”

Montagu Norman’s position may be gathered from the fact that his predecessors in the governorship, almost a hundred of them, had served two-year terms, increased rarely in time of crisis. But Norman held the position for twenty-four years (1920-1944).

Norman was a strange man whose mental outlook was one of successfully suppressed hysteria or even paranoia. He had no use for governments and feared democracy. Both of these seemed to him to be threats to private banking. Strong-willed, tireless, and ruthless, he viewed his life as a kind of cloak-and-dagger struggle with the forces of … [sound] money.

Norman had a devoted colleague in Benjamin Strong, the first governor of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.  Strong owed his career to the favor of the Morgan Bank. He became governor of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York as the joint nominee of Morgan and of Kuhn, Loeb, and Company in 1914.

Two years later, Strong met Norman for the first time, and they at once made an agreement to work in cooperation for the financial practices they both revered.

In the 1920’s, they were determined to use the financial power of Britain and of the United States to force all the major countries of the world to go on the gold standard and to operate it through central banks free from all political control, with all questions of international finance to be settled by agreements by such central banks without interference from governments.

Norman and Strong Were Mere Agents of the Powerful Bankers Who Remained Behind the Scenes and Operated in Secret

It must not be felt that these heads of the world’s chief central banks were themselves substantive powers in world finance. They were not. Rather, they were the technicians and agents of the dominant investment bankers of their own countries, who had raised them up and were perfectly capable of throwing them down.

The substantive financial powers of the world were in the hands of these investment bankers who remained largely behind the scenes in their own unincorporated private banks. These formed a system of international cooperation and national dominance which was more private, more powerful, and more secret than that of their agents in the central banks.

This dominance of investment bankers was based on their control over the flows of credit and investment funds in their own countries and throughout the world. They could dominate the financial and industrial systems of their own countries by their influence over the flow of current funds through bank loans, the discount rate, and the re-discounting of commercial debts. They could dominate governments by their control over … government loans and the play of the international exchanges.

In this system the Rothschilds had been preeminent during much of the nineteenth century, but, at the end of that century, they were being replaced by J. P. Morgan whose central office was in New York, although it was always operated as if it were in London (where it had, indeed, originated as George Peabody and Company in 1838). The growth of financial capitalism made possible a centralization of world economic control and a use of this power for the direct benefit of financiers and the indirect injury of all other economic groups.

 

Money Power Creates an Ingenious Plan to Create and Control Giant Monopolies

[Financial capitalists eventually] sought to sever control from ownership of securities, believing they could hold the former and relinquish the latter. On the industrial side, they sought to advance monopoly and restrict production, thus keeping prices up and their security holdings liquid.

The efforts of financiers to separate ownership from control were aided by the great capital demands of modern industry. Such demands for capital made necessary the corporation form of business organization. This inevitably brings together the capital owned by a large number of persons to create an enterprise controlled by a small number of persons. The financiers did all they could to make the former number as large as possible and the latter number as small as possible. The result of this was that larger and larger aggregates of wealth fell into the control of smaller and smaller groups of men.

While financial capitalism was thus weaving the intricate pattern of modern corporation law and practice on one side, it was establishing monopolies and cartels on the other. Both helped to dig the grave of financial capitalism and pass the reins of economic control on to the newer monopoly capitalism. On one side, the financiers freed the controllers of business from the owners of business, but on the other side, this concentration gave rise to monopoly conditions which freed the controllers from the banks.

Pg. 48-49: In effect, this creation of paper claims greater than the reserves available means that bankers were creating money out of nothing. The same thing could be done in another way, not by note-issuing banks but by deposit banks. Deposit bankers discovered that orders and checks drawn against deposits by depositors and given to third persons were often not cashed by the latter but were deposited to their own accounts.

Thus there were no actual movements of funds, and payments were made simply by bookkeeping transactions on the accounts. Accordingly, it was necessary for the banker to keep on hand in actual money (gold, certificates, and notes) no more than the fraction of deposits likely to be drawn upon and cashed; the rest could be used for loans, and if these loans were made by creating a deposit for the borrower, who in turn would draw checks upon it rather than withdraw it in money, such “created deposits” or loans could also be covered adequately by retaining reserves to only a fraction of their value.

Such created deposits also were a creation of money out of nothing, although bankers usually refused to express their actions, either note issuing or deposit lending, in these terms. William Paterson, however, on obtaining the charter of the Bank of England in 1694, to use the moneys he had won in privateering, said, “The Bank hath benefit of interest on all moneys which it creates out of nothing.” This was repeated by Sir Edward Holden, founder of the Midland Bank, on December 18, 1907, and is, of course, generally admitted today.

Pg. 51: The merchant bankers of London had already at hand in 1810-1850 the Stock Exchange, the Bank of England, and the London money market when the needs of advancing industrialism called all of these into the industrial world which they had hitherto ignored.

In time they brought into their financial network the provincial banking centers, organized as commercial banks and savings banks, as well as insurance companies, to form all of these into a single financial system on an international scale which manipulated the quantity and flow of money so that they were able to influence, if not control, governments on one side and industries on the other.

The men who did this, looking backward toward the period of dynastic monarchy in which they had their own roots, aspired to establish dynasties of international bankers and were at least as successful at this as were many of the dynastic political rulers.

The greatest of these dynasties, of course, were the descendants of Meyer Amschel Rothschild (1743-1812) of Frankfort, whose male descendants, for at least two generations, generally married first cousins or even nieces. Rothschild’s five sons, established at branches in Vienna, London, Naples, and Paris, as well as Frankfort, cooperated together in ways which other international banking dynasties copied but rarely excelled.

Pg. 52: The names of some of these banking families are familiar to all of us and should be more so. They include Raring, Lazard, Erlanger, Warburg, Schroder, Seligman, the Speyers, Mirabaud, Mallet, Fould, and above all Rothschild and Morgan. Even after these banking families became fully involved in domestic industry by the emergence of financial capitalism, they remained different from ordinary bankers in distinctive ways:

(1) they were cosmopolitan and international; (2) they were close to governments and were particularly concerned with questions of government debts, including foreign government debts, even in areas which seemed, at first glance, poor risks, like Egypt, Persia, Ottoman Turkey, Imperial China, and Latin America; (3) their interests were almost exclusively in bonds and very rarely in goods, since they admired “liquidity” and regarded commitments in commodities or even real estate as the first step toward bankruptcy; (4) they were, accordingly, fanatical devotees of deflation (which they called “sound” money from its close associations with high interest rates and a high value of money) and of the gold standard, which, in their eyes, symbolized and ensured these values; and (5) they were almost equally devoted to secrecy and the secret use of financial influence in political life.

Pg. 53: The influence of financial capitalism and of the international bankers who created it was exercised both on business and on governments, but could have done neither if it had not been able to persuade both these to accept two “axioms” of its own ideology. Both of these were based on the assumption that politicians were too weak and too subject to temporary popular pressures to be trusted with control of the money system; accordingly, the sanctity of all values and the soundness of money must be protected in two ways: by basing the value of money on gold and by allowing bankers to control the supply of money. To do this it was necessary to conceal, or even to mislead, both governments and people about the nature of money and its methods of operation.

Pg. 62: In addition to their power over government based on government financing and personal influence, bankers could steer governments in ways they wished them to go by other pressures. Since most government officials felt ignorant of finance, they sought advice from bankers whom they considered to be experts in the field. The history of the last century shows, as we shall see later, that the advice given to governments by bankers, like the advice they gave to industrialists, was consistently good for bankers, but was often disastrous for governments, businessmen, and the people generally. Such advice could be enforced if necessary by manipulation of exchanges, gold flows, discount rates, and even levels of business activity.

Thus Morgan dominated Cleveland’s second administration by gold withdrawals, and in 1936-1938 French foreign exchange manipulators paralyzed the Popular Front governments. As we shall see, the powers of these international bankers reached their peak in the last decade of their supremacy, 1919-1931, when Montagu Norman and J. P. Morgan dominated not only the financial world but international relations and other matters as well. On November I l, 1927, the Wall Street Journal called Mr. Norman “the currency dictator of Europe.”

This was admitted by Mr. Norman himself before the Court of the Bank on March Zl, 1930, and before the Macmillan Committee of the House of Commons five days later. On one occasion, just before international financial capitalism ran, at full speed, on the rocks which sank it, Mr. Norman is reported to have said, “I hold the hegemony of the world.”

Pg. 936-937: Behind this unfortunate situation lies another, more profound, relationship, which influences matters much broader than Far Eastern policy. It involves the organization of tax-exempt fortunes of international financiers into foundations to be used for educational, scientific, “and other public purposes.” Sixty or more years ago, public life in the West was dominated by the influence of “Wall Street.”

This term has nothing to do with its use by the Communists to mean monopolistic industrialism, but, on the contrary, refers to international financial capitalism deeply involved in the gold standard, foreign-exchange fluctuations, floating of fixed-interest securities and, to a lesser extent, flotation of industrial shares for stock-exchange markets.

This group, which in the United States, was completely dominated by J. P. Morgan and Company from the 1880’s to the 1930’s was cosmopolitan, Anglophile, internationalist, Ivy League, eastern seaboard, high Episcopalian, and European-culture conscious. Their connection with the Ivy League colleges rested on the fact that the large endowments of these institutions required constant consultation with the financiers of Wall Street (or its lesser branches on State Street, Boston, and elsewhere) and was reflected in the fact that these endowments, even in 1930, were largely in bonds rather than in real estate or common stocks. As a consequence of these influences, as late as the 1930’s, J. P. Morgan and his associates were the most significant figures in policy making at Harvard, Columbia, and to a lesser extent Yale, while the Whitneys were significant at Yale, and the Prudential Insurance Company (through Edward D. Duffield) dominated Princeton.

Pg. 937: The names of these Wall Street luminaries still adorn these Ivy League campuses, with Harkness colleges and a Payne Whitney gymnasium at Yale, a Pyne dormitory at Princeton, a Dillon Field House and Lamont Library at Harvard. The chief officials of these universities were beholden to these financial powers and usually owed their jobs to them. Morgan himself helped make Nicholas Murray Butler president of Columbia; his chief Boston agent, Thomas Nelson Perkins of the First National Bank of that city, gave Conant his boost from the chemical laboratory to University Hall at Harvard; Duffield of Prudential, caught unprepared when the incumbent president of Princeton was killed in an automobile in 1932, made himself president for a year before he chose Harold Dodds for the post in 1933. At Yale, Thomas Lamont, managing partner of the Morgan firm, was able to swing Charles Seymour into the presidency of that university in 1937.

The significant influence of “Wall Street” (meaning Morgan) both in the Ivy League and in Washington, in the period of sixty or more years following 1880, explains the constant interchange between the Ivy League and the Federal government, an interchange which undoubtedly aroused a good deal of resentment in less-favored circles, who were more than satiated with the accents, tweeds, and High Episcopal Anglophilia of these peoples

Pg. 938: Because of its dominant position in Wall Street, the Morgan firm came also to dominate other Wal1 Street powers, such as Carnegie, Whitney, Vanderbilt, Brown-Harriman, or Dillon-Reed. Close alliances were made with Rockefeller, Mellon, and Duke interests but not nearly so intimate ones with the great industrial powers like du Pont and Ford. [Because] … of the great influence of this “Wall Street” alignment, an influence great enough to merit the name of the “American Establishment,” this group could … control the Federal government and, in consequence, had to adjust to a good many government actions … [which they had secretly supported ]. The chief of these were in taxation law, beginning with the graduated income tax in 1913, but culminating, above all else, in the inheritance tax. These tax laws drove the great private fortunes dominated by Wall Street into tax-exempt foundations, which became a major link in the Establishment network between Wall Street, the Ivy League, and the Federal government.

More than fifty years ago the Morgan firm decided to infiltrate the Left-wing political movements in the United States. This was relatively easy to do, since these groups were starved for funds and eager for a voice to reach the people. Wall Street supplied both. The purpose was not to destroy … or take over but was really threefold: (1) to keep informed about the thinking of Left-wing or liberal groups; (2) to provide them with a mouthpiece so that they could “blow off steam,” and (3) to have a final veto on their publicity and possibly on their actions, if they ever went “radical.” There was nothing really new about this decision, since other financiers had talked about it and even attempted it earlier.

Pg. 939: The New Republic was founded by Willard and Dorothy Straight, using her money, in 1914, and continued to be supported by her financial contributions until March 23, 1953. The original purpose for establishing the paper was to provide an outlet for the progressive Left and to guide it quietly in an Anglophile direction. This latter task was entrusted to a young man, only four years out of Harvard, but already a member of the mysterious Round Table group, which has played a major role in directing England’s foreign policy since its formal establishment in 1909.

This new recruit, Walter Lippmann, has been, from 1914 to the present, the authentic spokesman in American journalism for the Establishments on both sides of the Atlantic in international affairs.

Chapter 65American Confusions, 1945-1950

There does exist, and has existed for a generation, an international Anglophile network. I know of the operations of this network because I have studied it for twenty years and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960’s, to examine its papers and secret records. I have no aversion to it or to most of its aims and have, for much of my life, been close to it and to many of its instruments. I have objected, both in the past and recently, to a few of its policies … but in general my chief difference of opinion is that it wishes to remain unknown, and I believe its role in history is significant enough to be known.

Chapter 77Conclusion

The hope of the twentieth century rests on its recognition that war and depression are man-made and needless. They can be avoided in the future by turning from … nineteenth-century characteristics … and going back to other characteristics that our Western society has always regarded as virtues: generosity, compassion, cooperation, rationality, and foresight, and finding an increased role in human life for love, spirituality, charity, and self-discipline.

THE ROAD TO WORLD GOVERNMENT IS PAVED WITH TYRANNY

By Howard Nema

Aside from the Federal Reserve Crime Syndicate, the United Nations is perhaps the greatest fraud ever perpetrated on humanity in world history.

How the public could be so easily led to economic ruin and genocide by these two nefarious organizations amplifies exactly how well the global elite social controllers know about human nature and how to manipulate public opinion.

The world has indeed been mesmerized, conditioned and propagandized by these two sinister institutions of poverty, famine and mass genocide. The globalists disguise their lies by defying their own stated intentions. Intentions that continually fail, often resulting in the exact opposite of what was claimed to be intended.

The deception is so effective that most continue to believe the fables of working for peace and economic prosperity when the opposite most often occurs. Still, the people, or should I say, the sheople continue to buy these on going lies and deceptions hook, line and sinker.

For instance, the Federal Reserve is a private banking cartel created in 1910 by the Rothschilds, the Bank of England, and the London banking houses which control the Federal Reserve Banks through stockholdings of bank stock and their subsidiary firms in New York.

The two principal Rothschild representatives in New York, J. P. Morgan Co., and Kuhn, Loeb & Co. were the firms which set up the Jekyll Island Conference at which the Federal Reserve Act was drafted.  They directed the subsequent successful campaign to have the plan enacted into law by Congress, and purchased the controlling amounts of stock in the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in 1914.

These firms appointed their principal officers to the Federal Reserve Board of Governors and the Federal Advisory Council in 1914.

In 1914 a small group of families and close business related associates owned the controlling stock in existing banks purchased controlling shares in the Federal Reserve regional banks.

The stockholders list of the original 12 regional Federal Reserve Banks show the same family lineage of control  to this day.

FEDERAL RESERVE OWNERS CHART

The Federal Reserve swindle is a continuing fraud. Sold to the American Public in 1913 as a way to supposedly prevent another run on the banks like the Panic of 1907 and to stabilize the markets. Of course, history has proven the exact opposite has occurred.

This is of course, by design.

In the 102 years since the privately owned and un-constitutional Federal Reserve was illegally ratified (by only 3 states) and snuck through Congress in the dark of night during the Christmas Holiday, the Fed has successfully funded two world wars, created the Great Depression, bankrupted the United States Government and devalued the US more than 95%, among a long list many other crimes.

To quell recent outcries from those in this country who understand exactly what is going on, the Federal Reserve now releases “minutes” and has allowed some access to its internal operation, but not a full audit which would no doubt reveal many, many skeletons in the closet.

The sooner the Fed’s treachery is exposed, the sooner the American people will begin to reap the benefits of a truly free market system. We must abolish the Federal Reserve and the personal income tax. They are the barriers to every American’s freedom and prosperity.

All we need to do to succeed in this endeavor is to have the will to act. To educate and to motivate. . . before it is too late.

Too many mind controlled sheople continue to support the Federal Reserve, especially since Janet Yellen was tasked to head the Fed. Chosen no doubt because Yellen resembles a Jewish grandmother, perceived as someone who would not be cooking the books, but rather cooking up some chicken soup to cure America’s financial ills.

As the gap between rich and poor widens more than during the gilded age of the robber barons, who today garner even more power and control over American Foreign policy on continue on their relentless path to neo-feudal world government.

The same immense deception was first conceived and attempted by Nathan Rothschild at the Congress of Vienna in 1814 and further sought by President Woodrow Wilson’s ill fated League of Nations in 1919, the same year the Council on Foreign Relations and the Royal Institute of International Affairs were both established.

The United Nations, established soon after WW2 schemed to implement an all powerful world government and has been working for that goal ever since.

While claiming to be a force for peace, for 70 years and counting, the UN has failed, creating more conflict, war and genocide and misery in their goal of “Nation building”, while destroying national sovereignty with international treaties.

Despite the UN’s words of peace and security, their actions for the last 70 years illustrates much the opposite.

When will Americans realize that we must end the Federal Reserve and get out of the United   Nations?   How much more must we lose?

The United Nations: On the Brink of Becoming a World Government

Written by        

On October 14, 2009, Lord Christopher Monckton, former science advisor to British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, delivered a scathing refutation of the concept of human-caused global warming at Bethel University in St. Paul, Minnesota.

During his presentation, Lord Monckton focused on the UN climate treaty that was being proposed for the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen that December.

He warned:

“I read that treaty. And what it says is this: that a world government is going to be created. The word “government” actually appears as the first of three purposes of the new entity.

The second purpose is the transfer of wealth from the countries of the West to third world countries…. And the third purpose of this new entity, this government, is enforcement.

Not just any government, mind you. They are about to impose a communist world government on the world.”

At the UN’s Rio+20 Earth Summit on Sustainable Development in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in June 2012, the world government advocates were pushing even grander schemes.

Lord Monckton, who heads the policy unit of the U.K. Independence Party and is chief policy advisor to the Washington, D.C.-based Science and Public Policy Institute, told The New American’s Alex Newman, “They were still effectively talking about a mechanization for setting up a global government so that they could shut down the West, shut down democracy, and bring freedom to an end worldwide.”

Is that merely the ranting of a madman? That’s what the usual suspects at the Huffington Post, MSNBC, and other organs of the liberal-left corporate media would have us believe. He is a “climate-change denier,” a “moonbat,” a “conspiracy wacko.”

That is the same response that has greeted anyone and everyone who has dared not merely to criticize the United Nations’ faults and abuses, but to point out the danger of a UN that is evolving into an actual world government — with real teeth and enforcement powers.

However, very influential Americans, as well as foreign leaders, in politics, media, and academe, have been advocating — blatantly and openly, as well as indirectly — for transforming the United Nations system into a full-blown world government. What’s more, they have begun actual implementation.

It is no longer hypothetical that the UN and its affiliated institutions will usurp legislative, executive, and judicial powers, including taxing, policing, and military powers. It has already begun; it is already happening. And it is happening with the acquiescence, approval, encouragement, and funding of globalists in our own government, both Republicans and Democrats.

Walter Cronkite, the late CBS anchorman and broadcast icon often referred to as “the most trusted man in America,” stated in 1999:

“It seems to many of us that if we are to avoid the eventual catastrophic world conflict we must strengthen the United Nations as a first step toward a world government with a legislature, executive and judiciary, and police to enforce its international laws and keep the peace.

To do that, of course, we Americans will have to yield up some of our sovereignty. It would take a lot of courage, a lot of faith in the new order…. We cannot defer this responsibility to posterity. Democracy, civilization itself, is at stake. Within the next few years we must change the basic structure of our global community from the present anarchic system of war … to a new system governed by a democratic U.N. federation.”

Cronkite made that statement in a 1999 speech to the World Federalist Association, one of the oldest and foremost organ­izations promoting world government.

Strobe Talbott may not be as well known as “Uncle Walter” Cronkite, but he wields considerable influence among political elites. A former “Soviet expert” and correspondent for Time magazine (Soviet KGB defector Sergei Tretyakov claimed Talbott was actually “an extremely valuable intelligence source” for Russian intelligence) and deputy secretary of state for President Clinton, Talbott now serves as president of the very influential think tank, the Brookings Institution, in Washington, D.C.

In a highly acclaimed essay he penned for Time in 1992, entitled “The Birth of the Global Nation,” Talbott declared:

In 1795 [philosopher Immanuel] Kant advocated a “peaceful league of democracies.” But it has taken the events in our own wondrous and terrible century to clinch the case for world government.

Federalism has already proved the most successful of all political experiments, and organizations like the World Federalist Association have for decades advocated it as the basis for global government.

Gideon Rachman, an enthusiastic one-worlder and a leading economic opinionator for the very influential Financial Times, authored a Times op-ed on December 8, 2008 entitled, “And Now for a World Government,” in which he approvingly observed:

So, it seems, everything is in place. For the first time since homo sapiens began to doodle on cave walls, there is an argument, an opportunity and a means to make serious steps towards a world government.

Rachman was excited that the global financial crisis was presenting a rich opportunity so that “for the first time in my life, I think the formation of some sort of world government is plausible.”

Rachman described the desideratum that he and fellow internationalists are working so hard to bring about:

A “world government” would involve much more than co-operation between nations.   It would be an entity with state-like characteristics, backed by a body of laws. The European Union has already set up a continental government for 27 countries, which could be a model. The EU has a supreme court, a currency, thousands of pages of law, a large civil service and the ability to deploy military force.

Similarly blatant calls for empowering the United Nations could be cited ad infinitum. But the fact is that the empowerment is already well under way.

Hiding in Plain Sight

Much of the superstructure and infrastructure for the physical edifice of a world government already have been built. The United Nations’ official organizational chart and the world map (below) give an ominous inkling of the global leviathan that is already in place.

(Note: Click on world map to enlarge it.)

But only an inkling; it actually vastly understates the magnitude of the organizational sprawl of the UN worldwide, since it merely shows the locations of the headquarters offices of the main UN agencies and only a few of the many regional offices or field operations of these agencies.

Take, for instance, the UN’s World Health Organization (WHO). In addition to its mammoth Geneva headquarters, it also has six huge regional offices: Africa HQ (Brazzaville, Congo); the Americas HQ (Washington, D.C.); Europe HQ (Copenhagen, Denmark); Eastern Mediterranean HQ (Cairo, Egypt); Southeast Asia HQ (Delhi, India); Western Pacific HQ (Manila, Philippines).

Likewise, the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization is located in a huge gleaming palace of glass and marble a short walk from the Colosseum in Rome. But it also has regional offices in Ghana, Chile, Thailand, Egypt, and Hungary, as well as subregional offices in Samoa, Barbados, Tunisia, Turkey, Ethiopia, Gabon, and Panama; and liaison offices in Geneva; Washington, D.C.; New York; Brussels; and Yokohama.

The story is similar at UNESCO, which, besides boasting a palatial edifice in Paris, called the World Heritage Center, has field offices, cluster offices, national offices, regional bureaus, and liaison offices in more than 50 countries throughout the world. This same pattern is repeated for many other UN agencies.

Besides putting in place a vast civil service of administrators and bureaucrats to run the planned world government, the ever-expanding UN system has created a huge global constituency of local and national politicians, corporations, and NGOs that benefits from the UN’s presence and can be counted on to lobby for its continued expansion.

Gideon Rachman’s statement above referring approvingly to the European Union (EU) as a model for the UN is particularly apropos. For decades, critics of the Common Market (as the EU was called before 1993) warned that the organization was being built piece by piece, agency by agency, into a supranational government, only to be derided as paranoid wackos by EU proponents. Now, of course, all pretenses are being dropped because the EU is de facto a supranational government that completely overrides the national and local governments of its member states.

The UN’s rapidly growing organizational footprint is most jarringly visible throughout the Third World, where offices of UN agencies, the IMF, and World Bank dominate the political and economic landscape, and UN trucks, UN tent cities, blue-helmeted UN peacekeepers, and UN civilian staff are ubiquitous.

The gradual development of the UN from an international organization into a world government was planned from the world body’s beginning in 1945. One of the UN architects at the UN founding conference in San Francisco was John Foster Dulles, who served as U.S. secretary of state from 1953 to 1959. In his 1950 book, War or Peace, Dulles, a committed one-worlder and a founder of the one-world Council on Foreign Relations, wrote of the then-five-year-old UN: “The United Nations represents not a final stage in the development of world order, but only a primitive stage. Therefore its primary task is to create the conditions which will make possible a more highly developed organization.”

Later in the same book, Dulles stated: “I have never seen any proposal made for collective security with ‘teeth’ in it, or for ‘world government’ or for ‘world federation,’ which could not be carried out either by the United Nations or under the United Nations Charter.”

The UN’s New World Order

The push to empower the UN with global legislative, executive, and judicial powers has already yielded huge dividends, and UN bodies are now exercising those powers to various degrees — and constantly pushing to usurp more control. Here is a brief survey.

The Global Army: On its Web page entitled “Honoring 60 Years of United Nations Peacekeeping (1948-2008)” the UN makes this ominous boast:

A massive enterprise — The UN is the largest multilateral contributor to post-conflict stabilization worldwide. Only the United States deploys more military personnel to the field than the United Nations. [Emphasis added.]

There are almost 110,000 serving on 20 peace operations led by the UN Departments of Peacekeeping Operations (DPKO) and Field Support (DFS) on four continents directly impacting the lives of hundreds of millions of people. This represents a seven-fold increase in UN peacekeepers since 1999. [Emphasis added.]

The United States picks up 27 percent of the direct tab for UN peacekeeping operations, but that is only a fraction of the American contribution. Through the Global Peace Operations Initiative (GPOI) and the African Contingency Operations Training and Assistance (ACOTA) program, both operated jointly by the U.S. Departments of State and Defense, the U.S. military has trained (and continues to train) tens of thousands of UN “peacekeepers,” many of whom have been charged with carrying out genocide and atrocities, including widespread rape and sodomizing of women and children, as well as sexploitation of impoverished children in Haiti, Ivory Coast, Liberia, Congo, Somalia, and Kosovo. An even larger chunk of UN war-making disguised as “peacekeeping” is carried out under the auspices of NATO — again, courtesy of the U.S. taxpayers and U.S. armed forces.

The Global Prosecutor, Judge, and Jury: The UN’s International Criminal Court (ICC) officially opened its doors at The Hague 10 years ago, in July 2002. The UN boasts that “the ICC has become a fully functional institution, with 16 cases having been brought before the Court, 6 of which are at the trial stage. ICC judges have issued 22 arrest warrants and 6 arrests have been made.” Although most of those targeted thus far are generally recognized as bad men, the ICC’s prosecutions are establishing dangerous precedents that could be used against innocent political targets, including American citizens. The ICC’s governing Rome Statute violates the most basic principles of due process, separation of powers, and national sovereignty. It incorporates within the ICC itself the roles of prosecutor, judge, and jury.

Notre Dame University Law Professor Charles Rice called the ICC “a monstrosity.” Ambassador David Scheffer, the pro-ICC negotiator for President Bill Clinton, admitted, “it is not credible to argue … that no American will ever come before it. We are not saying Americans are off bounds.”

The danger is not that Americans (U.S. military personnel, law-enforcement officers, elected officials, or private citizens) will be taken before the ICC against the wishes of the U.S. government, but that our own government officials will acquiesce in the process, arguing that we must uphold “the rule of law” and the will of the “international community.”

The Global Taxman: World government advocates have long lamented that the UN must depend on dues and contributions from its member states. Their dream of a UN that will have an independent revenue stream from global taxes is dangerously close at hand. The controversy and opposition caused by the European Union’s imposition of a “carbon tax” on all air travel has given the UN leverage to propose its own global carbon tax on all air passengers, through the UN’s International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). However, many other global tax proposals are in the works, with a global financial transaction tax (FTT) being, perhaps, the one closest to realization and receiving major backing from many leaders of the G-20 nations and the NGO lobby. Various FTT proposals, such as the Tobin Tax, could net the UN hundreds of billions of dollars annually. The usual rationale given for an FTT is that the proceeds would be used to end global poverty, but the UN’s record indicates the massive sums taken would end up in the bank accounts of the UN’s corrupt officials.

The Global Fed: The International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank (WB) have wrought economic havoc worldwide for decades, burdening nations (especially the less-developed countries) with impossible debt and onerous economic policies. Over the last several years, a growing chorus of globalists has called for transforming and “supersizing” the IMF into the equivalent of a global Federal Reserve, with a global currency — SDRs, Special Drawing Rights — to displace the dollar. In 2010, the UN issued its World Economic and Social Survey, which said: “A new global reserve system could be created, one that no longer relies on the United States dollar as the single major reserve currency.” According to the UN report, a new reserve system “should permit the emission of international liquidity — such as SDRs — to create a more stable global financial system.”

A global currency would allow whoever controls the currency (in this case the IMF) to control the world economy and to enjoy unlimited financial power. And it could “bail out” or subsidize any company it wishes, to the detriment of other companies. Like a global Federal Reserve, it could confiscate wealth by simply inflating the currency.

The Global Trade Cop: The World Trade Organization (WTO), which entered into force in 1995, has joined NAFTA (the North American Free Trade Agreement) in judging and overturning U.S. laws and court decisions. The WTO has already proven the charges by its critics and opponents, that it is an enormous threat to America’s national sovereignty, as well as an engine of global central economic planning.

>“Make no mistake about it,” warned Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) in 2005, “WTO ministers tell Congress to change American laws, and Congress complies.  In fact, congressional leaders obediently scrambled to make sure the corporate tax bill passed before a WTO deadline. Thousands and thousands of bills languish in committees, yet a bill ordered by the WTO was pushed to the front of the line.”

The Global Enviro-Cop: Through a multitude of environmental agreements, programs, and agencies — Agenda 21, the Biodiversity Treaty, UN Convention on Climate Change, the United Nations Environment Program, the Global Environment Facility, etc. — the UN and its one-world advocates are spinning a web of control over all human activity. As in the case of other global taxes and regulations, the UN depends on national governments to be complicit in adopting “international norms and commitments” that will lock individual nations into the UN’s regulatory grip.

The Global Gun Grabber: Through its Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) and its Program of Action (PoA) on Small Arms, the United Nations has been pushing feverishly for over a decade and a half to undermine the right of individuals to possess firearms, as guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment. The UN attack is aimed not only at infringing the right of private gun ownership, but also increasing restrictions on ammunition, gunpowder, and other essential components. In August 2012, the UN began its latest round of efforts to attack this fundamental right, asserting the claimed right of the state to have an unchallengeable monopoly of force. It is not surprising that the United States is virtually the sole holdout, as most UN member states are either dictatorships that do not allow individuals to possess firearms, or socialist countries traveling the same direction on the road to tyranny.

The Global Internet Controller: Since at least 2003, when the United Nations hosted its first World Summit on the Information Society, the UN has been leading an effort to take over the Internet. The countries in the forefront of this effort are Russia, China, Iran, North Korea, Cuba, Sudan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan — dictatorships where Internet censorship and cyber spying on citizens are standard operating procedures.

Insatiable Globocrats

The UN grabs for power cited above are far from a complete list. The UN’s Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST) aims to give the UN authority over the planet’s oceans, coastal waters, fisheries, seabed oil and mineral wealth, and maritime traffic. The UN’s World Health Organization and Food & Agriculture Organization are in charge of the Codex Alimentarius, the UN effort to regulate and take control over raw food, processed food, and semi-processed food, including vitamin and mineral supplements, herbs, and other nutritional products. UNESCO has insinuated itself into American schools and families through “partnerships” with our federal and state Education Departments that include curriculum design and invasive, psychologically manipulative “emotional wellness” evaluations. The UN Population Fund (UNFPA) not only supports forced abortion in China, but works assiduously with Planned Parenthood to overturn national abortion laws and make abortion legal and commonplace worldwide.

The list goes on and on — and on. If any human condition or domain of human activity, any potential “crisis,” or any particle or parcel of the Earth, sea, or sky has been overlooked by the UN, one can be sure the omission will soon be corrected, and that a new UN commission, agency, and/or treaty will soon be initiated to claim responsibility and jurisdiction over it.  Original Source

THE KEYSTONE PIPELINE AND THE AMERICAN WELFARE STATE

OBAMA LIAR

 

OBAMA  LIES TO AMERICA:

SAYS KEYSTONE PIPELINE

WON’T SIGNIFICANTLY STIMULATE

THE ECONOMY, CREATE JOBS,  OR

LOWER OIL PRICES. . . . . . .

BUT IT WOULD ADD TO GLOBAL WARMING

Really?

All I see getting added to here are the welfare rolls.    What do you see?

 

By Howard Nema

For seven years Obama has blocked the Keystone Pipeline. The Ministry of Truth reported that the pipeline would not be in the best interests of United States National Security and would contribute to global warming.

http://www.nytimes.com/2015/11/07/us/obama-expected-to-reject-construction-of-keystone-xl-oil-pipeline.html?_r=0

The goal of the United States National Security interests is to maintain this lie to assist in the willing reduction of Americans freedom and standards of living in order to save the planet.

All the while billionaires and multimillionaires who made their fortunes on capitalism rail on capitalism, promoting socialism and economic inequality as they lower everyone else’s standard of living.

Many, like the eco-friendly tree huggers buy fully into the deception.

They  willingly reduce their carbon footprint by living in 400 square foot eco-friendly geo-homes while Al Gore and Obama spew carbon, which by the way  has been insanely demonized as a deadly poison gas.    A gas that without it,  life on earth could not  exist!

But  I digress.

Yes, Obama and the eco-fascists constantly  jet across the world burning hundreds of thousands of gallons of jet fuel  while preaching the fire and brimstone New Age religion of climate change  fanaticism  and warn about the deadly dangers of global warming to Gaia earth instead of warning about the destruction of Our dollar, inflation and the standard of living.

Then  Obama has the audacity to say We the People can’t be selfish and keep our thermostats so high in the winter and low in the summer, selling a bill of goods to the sheople, who willingly accept discomfort and buy into reducing their carbon footprint and their standard of living while the traitor and chief increasing his own.

Why is it  always we who have to sacrifice and do with less while they themselves live in 20,000 square foot mansions kept at 72 degrees year round in pure comfort?

Outrageous isn’t it?    Talk about hot air.   Hot shit.

Fools.   For now it appears voluntary.  As the movement grows the deniers are attacked and hated more and more..

This Hegelian ploy must be abated, or the iron boot of hot tyranny will fall upon the unfaithful to the New Age way of life.    Yes.   Even today, in our so supposedly tolerant and liberal society,  many are already calling for the imprisonment of deniers.

How very Medieval, no.  After all, we are dealing with neo-feudalism.

The more people buy into these carbon tax schemes and willing submission to this ever increasing soft tyranny, the less there will be a need to use force to control the herd.

The resisters will be and are targeted as radicals and extremists, while the compliant slaves are praised for their intelligence and wisdom.

Fools.

The ultimate road the transformers of America want the sheople to go down is the road of submission to the will of the State. The more who go along with the New Age New World Order indoctrination of humanity, the less resistance they will have to contend with and the more orderly the selection process can continue.

Oh yes. I said selection process. As it was before the Bolshevik Revolution and the rise of Hitler and the Nazis so it is today. Make no mistake about it. Tune it all out if you’d like to, but the pieces are all once again being put into place for a great social change, as Obama called it.   A fundamental transformation.

Indeed.   Into the New World Order.

Fools.

OBAMA SERVES TEH ELITEIn 2007 Obama promised shovel ready jobs to rebuild our electrical grid and our crumbling roads and bridges. To this day, there hasn’t been one shovel.

Economic growth consists of mostly part time jobs paying $10 per hour or less, but Obama says we don’t need the pipeline because it will not significantly improve Our economy since gasoline prices are already so low.

Interesting how the spike of gas prices in 2008 has been used as a political tool and the many long term economic benefits are downplayed, or ignored.

OBAMA LIE PRE PRESIDENT

Gee, you’d think they want to reduce the standard of living of every American?

http://keystone-xl.com/benefits-of-keystone-xl-oil-pipeline-us-jobs-economic-benefits-energy-security-environmental-responsibility-pipeline-safety-TransCanada/

Here are just a few reasons to support the Keystone XL Pipeline:

Jobs.  This project is the definition of shovel-ready.   Almost overnight, Keystone XL could put 9,000 hard-working American men and women directly to work.

The U.S. State Department’s Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (PDF, 4 MB) found that the project would support more than 42,000 direct and indirect jobs nationwide. Learn more about Keystone XL jobs. Economic Benefits Keystone XL will contribute more than $3 billion towards U.S. GDP. Taxes paid by the project will greatly benefit the towns and counties it passes through.

The U.S. State Department’s Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (PDF, 4 MB) showed Keystone XL will provide a substantial increase in tax revenues for counties along the pipeline route, with 17 of 27 expected to see increases of 10 percent or more.

Keystone XL connects the largest most sophisticated refining hub in the Gulf Coast with the third largest oil reserves on the planet and the second largest oil-producing region in the United States. Safe, secure access to domestic crude oil is key to ensuring long-term energy security. That’s exactly what Keystone XL provides.

Fears of environmental damages are unfounded.  The State Department’s Final SEIS, and four previous environmental impact statements written over the past five years, containing more than 17,000 pages of scientific research, all reached a similar conclusion: Keystone XL would have minimal impact on the environment.

Multiple scientific studies have also shown that Keystone XL and the development of the oil sands will not add to the global warming fraud or put the global climate in jeopardy.

Safety.  It has been well-established that pipelines are, by far, the safest mode of transportation for crude oil and natural gas. A recent Fraser Institute study shows that pipeline workers are less likely to be injured on the job and pipelines have fewer incidents per mile than trains and trucks.

The State Department environmental impact reports have concluded that Keystone XL would have a degree of safety greater than any other crude oil pipeline in operation in the U.S.

That’s because  59 additional special safety conditions that go above and beyond federal regulations. Crude oil needs to move from wells to the refineries in the safest and most efficient way possible, no compromises.

Learn more @ the Keystone XL blog post:

Gas prices were made artificially high for years before 2008 due to speculation.    Supply and demand from drilling in North Dakota and Montana, whose economies are booming as a result, are the reason gas prices are reduced to near where they should naturally be.

The oil boom that caused the economic growth seen in North Dakota is so great that it has spawned growth in other depressed industries and revitalized the entire state.

In fact, the economy is so good, if you want $15 hour minimum wage, you can go work at Mac Donalds in Fargo and make $15 due to the economic laws of supply and demand, not minimum wage, which by the way is $7.25.

Fools and socialists, (one can argue they are both one and the same), do not seem to realize that markets cannot sustain $15 per hour jobs if demand for a product or service doesn’t meet the supply.

In NYC there are thousands of fast food joints. If the demand only calls for $10.00 per hour wages, raising the minimum wage will result in layoffs, closings and replacement by robots and machines. While this may have been science fiction in the past, today robotics and artificial intelligence are viable and growing alternatives to human labor.

Are you aware that by 2029 it is extimated that 30% of traditional jobs will be replaced by artificial intelligence and robotics?

http://www.businessinsider.com/experts-predict-that-one-third-of-jobs-will-be-replaced-by-robots-2015-5

Do you realize with this will mean here in America, with open borders, unsustainable welfare obligations and debt?

Do you even care?

Are you not outraged how America is willingly being led down the path of destruction by a cult of personality charlatan who, in true Masonic fashion, hoodwinked his way into office by enormous sums given to him by Wall Street, the very class he is supposed to be opposed to?

These are the same puppet masters who cooked up the Hegelian 2008 bailout to save their corrupt, greedy skins. These are the same Machiavellian deceivers who concocted the plan to create a housing bubble, selling cut and paste mortgages and worthless derivatives resulting in the loss of 20 million Americans homes.

These same criminals have profited ten fold as a result of their conjuring up this elaborate scheme, the seeds of it sown when Bill Clinton repealed Glass-Steagall in 1998.

The creators of this economic suffering are the very same who profit from it, while the average American struggles to fill their gas tanks to get to their $9 hour part time job at Wal-Mart and the social services office to get their food stamps.

http://www.pewresearch.org/files/2014/12/FT_14.12.16_wealthInequality4.png

Currently, the sheople are getting a little break in the reduction of gasoline prices adding to the illusion of economic progress, deceived into believing that America is indeed on the road to recovery. Sadly, we are not.

No, America is not on the road to recovery, yet we are still addicted to the ether pumped out of the Obama regime and believe the Goebbels-esque hype.

What happens when Obamacare mandates kick in in January? Everyone must have costlier insurance or pay a tax. This year the tax will be about $2 grand.

Does it speak to any of you that Obamacare calls for 16,000 new IRS agents, but no new doctors?

What happens when as a result of Obama taxing the coal industry into oblivion and electric prices “necessarily spiking” 40 percent as Obama himself agreed they will. And they will.

So Obama shoots down the Keystone Pipeline like a drone strike and ignores the collateral damage associated with his collectivism.

Teleprompter reading Obama voiced the edicts of the eco-fascist power brokers who control his abominable administration and are fast working to deindustrialize America while increasing welfare rolls.

The absolutely abhorrent lies spewed by this eco-fascist that the Keystone Pipeline would not significantly help our already “improving” economy is laughable. Indeed, things are far better than they were in 2008. But we need to increase growth exponentially and in each and every way.

http://www.factcheck.org/2014/10/obamas-numbers-october-2014-update/

But Obama’s record is deceiving. The economic progress has created an economic recovery of low or lower income,  and in many cases part time jobs. This recovery finds Americans who were out of work taking jobs as far lower wages as a result.

This is why many college graduates have degrees in worthlessness and are flipping burgers at Wendy’s or are serving lattes at Starbucks. This level of recovery was not created by, or assisted by anything Obama has done. It is simply the stabilizing effect of economics. Economics stifled by taxation, regulation and a myriad of limits to growth.

This recovery has benefited corporations the most, but due to loopholes in regulations pay little or no taxes. These communists want a progressive income tax on the people. That is why the Federal Reserve Crime Syndicate was enacted. To transfer the wealth to the Illuminati New World Order banksters. The writing is on the wall. We must end all taxation on personal income and property. Tax the corporations and mandate them to serve the people.

There was a time when corporations had to prove their service was beneficial to society in order to continue doing business. I think it is long past time America takes the same approach. This will lead to better and safer products, especially in the pharmaceutical and food industries. This will also lead to higher earnings, better working conditions and benefits for workers.

Let the corporations pay, not the government and we will change the world for the better.

Yes, America is better than it was in 2008, no doubt. Still, for too long economic conditions in America continue to be stagnant. There is a malaise. Our economy has flatlined.

There are signs of improvement, but these economic improvements are mostly in wealthier parts of Our country like the New York City Metro area, which is an international hub of commerce.

2015 Main Street in Torrington, CT looks much the same as  like  2008 Torrington but  with more shuttered store fronts, section 8 housing, methadone clinics and homeless shelters.

Like many once thriving manufacturing towns, Torrington has bit the dust.

The same cannot be said of Stamford or Greenwich, Connecticut or other affluent communities where 20,000 square foot mansions are regularly being built, even back in 2008.    This is where the hedge fund managers and billionaires reside.

And they like to live large.

We the sheople, the miniscule insignificant useless eaters have to submit to these elites and  their propagandized deceptions to bolster and implement their bogus  carbon schemes and other nefarious collectivist ploys.

Still, the fact is the majority of Americans still living pay check to pay check, have $10,000 of credit card debt and little or no savings or retirement funds.

And we call this economic progress.

Obama eluding to lower gasoline prices is nothing more than a ruse to shoot down the Keystone pipeline. Certainly, the mass herds of sheople who have continuously bought and support Obama’s fundamental transformation of America believe every word he says, since on the surface his record looks pretty good compared to economic conditions under Bush.

Obama killed Gaddafi, a stabilizer of radical violent Islamic extremists so the Rothschilds could get into Libya and set up a central bank. This led to the Benghazi terror attack and the murder of Ambassador Stevens and the lies about an inflammatory video sold and propagandized on every Sunday morning political show for weeks by the Regime’s minion Susan Rice.

In the corrupt communist Obama Regime political agendas trump truth, justice and the general welfare of the American people if need be. It is pure communism. A means to an end. We mean nothing to these slime, yet want everything from us. They want us to kneel at their feet and swear allegiance to great State.

We are to be used and abused by these Marxist elitists like a pimp treats his stable of crack whores, addicting them to candied rhetoric and creating wilful obedience. Any dissent to this is met with outrage, anger and hate. It is like the “two minutes hate” from Orwell’s 1984.    Hate all who oppose The Brotherhood.

To illustrate the insidious craftiness of the Regime’s Hegelian ploy executed with Machiavellian precision, the Obama regime refuses to calls violent Islamic extremists terrorists as they invoke Allah and stab and behead Americans on Our soil.

The regime activated the predetermined plan to “bring the troops home and end the war” to intentionally destabilized the entire region by pulling the troops out.

This was all part of the fundamental transformation.

Over the past seven years, green has become the new red. The communist/collectivist activities of the Obama regime have their constituents hoodwinked over the fact that the democrats are truly the wealthiest of the wealthy and that all of these collectivist measures to get Americans off their addiction to fossil fuels have benefited Obama’s constituents to the tune of billions of dollars of taxpayer money being funneled to insolvent companies like Solyndra, who duped taxpayers out of more than $550 million before going bankrupt.

The left continuously blame the right for a war on the poor and middle class, when these communists are stealing the wealth of America and squandering it for their capitalist cronies. The irony is murderous.

While Unions, who are by definition creatures of the left and many wise America workers who are desperately trying to improve their standard of living and get better paying jobs point this out.

Our communist in chief and the teleprompter writer spin doctors focus on the many great Agenda 21 achievements that have so far transformed the country, and as a result, there would be no need for the pipeline because it would not significantly help to create jobs or the economy.

Really?

This horse shit is again taken as gospel by the Obama legion, who more and more resemble Germans in the mid 1930’s supporting der Fuhrer.

After all, if you remember your history, American Banks and corporations funded Hitler’s rise and fall from 1924 to 1945 aided by the Vril Society and the German Bavarian Secret Societies of Yale’s Skull and Bones and the Thule Society, both known as the Brotherhood of Death, both symbolized by the skull and crossbones sported by the Nazis.

Here is a relevant and very interesting correlation:

Hitler also transformed Germany, did he not? All these new ideologies and programs were forced on the population. As Germany became an economic powerhouse throughout the 1930’s Hitler became a God to the German people.

But their God was an angel of darkness disguised as light. A false prophet who built up Germany only to have her destroyed and left in worse economic ruin than in 1918, or at any time in its history.

Comparisons to Obama, Bush and Hitler are applicable. As noted, we are today exposed to a soft tyranny, grandiose corruption and deception and serious moral decay to distract the people from noticing this forced transformation and planned deindustrialization.

Oh the lies.

Remember? You can keep your own doctor? You can keep your insurance. There are no weapons of Mass destruction.

Many deceptions. Remember Hitler signed the Munich Pact, then invaded Poland.

History repeats itself, in similar forms. As George Santayana noted: ‘Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.’

Speaking of the past: Where are those good paying shovel ready jobs Obama promised to build up our crumbling infrastructure when he was on the campaign trail in 2007?

There are none and there will be none. No true economic development will be fostered that benefits the majority of Americans, who are in fact the most economically strapped.

When the goal is to get as many people on welfare and dependence on government programs, you cannot have too much economic progress. This is assisted by corporate welfare and the Federal Reserve artificially pumping up the stock market, which mostly benefits corporations.

The stock market and the 1% have profited more under Obama than under any other administration in the last 50 years. The gap between rich is even larger than at the turn of the 20th century when Teddy Roosevelt attacked the trusts and instituted the first social justice programs.

http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2014/12/17/wealth-gap-upper-middle-income/

Just because today’s poor have cell phones, welfare and food stamps doesn’t mean there is improvement in American’s standard of living.

In fact the exact opposite is true. The Oligarchs who own Obama and both democrat and republican parties are single minded in their intent to destroy America.

While Americans willfully accept lies and treason from the puppet masters at the Council on Foreign Relations and the United Nations, this process of creating a two class neo-feudal society by filtering wealth up to the top 1/10 of one percenters by income redistribution has duped the poor and middle class, mostly democrats to unknowingly embrace their own servitude.

Can they not see the writing on the wall? No, nor can they see the forest because of the trees.

This continuous 60 year effort to deindustrialize America and steal the people’s wealth has been achieved thus far by lying traitors and one sided trade deals like NAFTA, GATT and now the Trans-Pacific Partnership, that have resulted in the loss of millions of U.S. jobs that will never return.

While pushing for NAFTA, you may recall how Al “global warming” Gore sold the lie to the American Sheople on Larry King, “this is a great deal for America, Larry.”

No. It was yet another great deal for the Oligarchs who were rewarded with cheap slave labor from third world countries at the expense of the American people, not their betterment.

Once again, the Hegelian Machiavellian deceivers are duping Americans to believe that the Keystone pipeline won’t help significantly improve Our stagnant economy, nor help us to reduce the size of government and Our National Debt.

What fools to believe this.

This is what happens when our leaders are lionized and transformed into pop-culture icons and celebrities. The cult of personality rules over the stupid sheople, more than ever.

History has proven that trade deals like GATT and NAFTA result in the exact opposite of their supposed intent. It is a simple deception called the law of reversal.

Hitler’s propaganda minister Josef Goebbels noted that you make the lie simple and keep repeating it the people will believe it.

Like the Bin Laden fable, or a myriad of other political lies and deceptions that have resulted in the conditions we face living in America today.

America is fast becoming a third world socialist cesspool thanks to the cognitive dissonance created by these deceivers who have convinced America to willfully slip the noose around Our collective necks and leap off into the deep end into totalitarian socialism.

What America faces now is a soft tyranny. In many ways, soft tyranny is more insidious than hot tyranny, when non-conformists are disappeared, jailed and executed.

When this type of tyranny is used as it was used by Hitler, Stalin, Mao and a long list of totalitarian socialists, the realities of the regimes are more obvious.

When rights and wealth are willingly relinquished as we have occurring today in Amerika the blame is not on the cruel dictator, but rather a specific economic or political group, like rich republicans, or Christians for instance.

Hitler used the same tactic when he demonized the Jews. In Obama’s case, the lies of getting rich Americans to paying their fair share is laughable, since these very same rich Americans own Obama’s ass.

UN New World Order tools Bill Gates and Warren Buffett say they don’t pay enough in taxes and call for higher taxation on the rich, while advocating global warming carbon taxes for everyone based on their carbon footprint and other Marxist deceptions, including the depopulation agenda. They are merely figureheads who continue to profit off the poor and middle class who continue to pay.

Gates and Buffett are peasants when compared to the wealth of the ruling class oligarchs they serve, of the Rockefeller, Rothschild, Royal Family ilk. Gates and Buffett have been tasked as the poster boys for United Nations Agenda 21 deindustrialization and depopulation.

How most Americans cannot notice, realize or believe this is happening means are either delusional, in denial, or more likely victims of cognitive dissonance.

You could say that to some extent we enjoy Our servitude. We like it in a sort of masochistic way.

It seems we enjoy getting raped and abused by Uncle Sam.

It seems rather than fight to truly live free, many submit to simplify their own existence and conform to set ways designed by psycho social engineering think tanks.

Despite the rhetoric from both sides of the political spectrum the rich continue to get richer as the middle class slowly edges down into poverty. History proves this, starting with Johnson’s “Great Society”.

The thing is, since the establishment of the “Great Society” in 1964 with welfare programs and other costly measures that have totalled more than $4 trillion, poverty levels are very much the same as they were in 1964.

What is not the same, is the size of the middle class which has shrunk dramatically over the last seven years and continues to shrink.

But as mentioned, it is not Obama alone. Yes, he has moved the New World Order deindustrialization agenda further than any president since Johnson, but all subsequent presidents have led America down this path to neo-fuedalism, both democrat and republican.

How and why the average American hasn’t noticed this, or doesn’t care is unbelievably foolish.

The State is breeding a permanent lazy welfare class, who are made as comfortable as possible in their poverty by the State with food stamps, rent payments, welfare, free health insurance and even cell phones.

All of this is supplied by taxes from the productive sector, which will eventually dwindle down to a handful of multi-national corporations that will supply all of American’s needs.

This is already happening. Mergers and acquisitions are killing competition. Small business takes most of the hits. The oligarchs don’t want mom and pop businesses, they want Americans to be forced to shop a big mega stores subsidized by U.S. tax dollars.

So when all of this is put into perspective it is easy to see why America has evolved and is being transformed into an ever growing welfare state.

This is why illegals swarm over Our borders unabated through both republican and democrat administrations. It has nothing to do with compassion, or fairness, or equality, but it has everything to do with this fundamental transformation of America into a welfare state on the path to world government.
