We Wish You A Merry Christmas… But No Guarantees

December 10, 2011

Anyone curious as to why we say ‘Amen’ at the end of every prayer should invest 5 hours of their life watching the “Ring of Power” series.

If you’re new to this info, it will seem insane, and if you’ve seen Zeitgeist, this goes even further than that.

Personally, I don’t think this info takes anything away from the power of the Christ legend, the idea of God, and the values and culture that flow from that – in fact, I think it is important historical information that should be mainstream, so that we don’t lose hold of these truths.

I think we all know that the world economy is screwed up with ‘funny money’ – fiat currencies now so uncontrolled in their creation that they are effectively legalized counterfeiting schemes.  This creation of unlimited digital money has dangerously distorted our economies and, in turn, our very cultural fabric.

For example, housing and education could never have become so expensive without the imaginary loans and mortgages to pay for it all out of thin air, and what would once represent a significant investment of hard-saved earnings is now reduced to a mere monthly payment.  Loans are legitimized with down payments charged to credit cards at 5 times the interest of the loan itself, and consumers are encouraged to look no further than the next monthly payment in their judgement.

In the midst of this blizzard of digital fantasies are the banks and loan officers, all paying themselves commissions – with the same funny money they are ‘lending’ people – the day the loan is made.  This means that they get their commission whether the loan is successful or not.  This is an environment rife with corruption like no other, even topping the S&L frauds of the 80’s – read up on ‘NINJA’ loans and you’ll get the general idea.

Worse, by the time a loan fails, it will have long been bundled into packages of other loans and sold repeatedly to the point that in many cases no one knows who owns the loan anymore.  This state of affairs has seen homeowners saved from foreclosure when they demanded to know who owned their mortgage, as well as the criminally perverse reality of banks actually foreclosing on properties that don’t even have a mortgage, let alone one the bank owns.

Still, all of this pales in comparison to the mammoth, juggernaut of fraud that looms on the horizon in the form of CDO’s and Derivatives.  You see, after bundling all of this fake, phony, toxic debt in triple A rated securities, funds were created to offset the losses of these loans if/when they defaulted.  The ‘long’ end of these funds – again rated Triple A – were sold worldwide to governments, pension funds, mutual funds, and investors of all kinds worldwide, while the ‘short’ end was kept by the fraudsters involved.

In other words, they have bet against the economy itself, and stand to be ‘owed ‘literally 100 of Trillions of dollars when this giant ponzi pinata explodes, wiping out your savings and relegating governments and their populations into eternal debt slavery.

It’s a very real proposition, and driven, in my view, by the biggest overall danger of the distortions phony fiat digital counterfeit currencies bring to our lives :  because so much of the economy is artificially supported, it becomes all but impossible to tell when it is no longer working – until there is an unavoidable crash, as with any ponzi scheme, no matter how desperately it is kept afloat, it mathematically cannot survive over time.

That is a bit more economic analysis than this movie maybe gets into, but I wanted to try to put the ramifications of the issues raised in the Ring of Power series into immediate context.  Also, there is no more important piece to this puzzle than the understanding of what money itself actually is, and how important that its conceptualization, existence and control be in the people’s, and not private hands.

Despite the obvious clichés about Jews and money,  I encourage people to not look at this info backwards through time – that is, just because the roots of this are claimed to be ancient Hebrew tribes does not mean it has anything to do with modern Jews in Israel today.  What this is about, is an ancient elite that persists in our culture to this day.

That these blood lines exist is plain.  Their true nature and goals is up for debate – but whatever their power, holdings, wealth, alleged control of our monetary systems, or nefarious plots against our very humanity may be, these are historical, anthropological truths that need to be understood by the mainstream Peoples of the world.

There is no such thing as a ‘Chain of Command’, this is a manipulative euphemism for what is more truly a ‘Chain of Obedience’.  I present these ideas to you not because I wish to criticize or do away with our mutilated and deformed Christmas holiday, but because I want it BACK.  Let’s open our minds this year to the complex realities of our age, that we may truly know who the God ‘Amen’ is that we pray to under the guise of our various religions.

Peter Schiff Defends The 1%

October 30, 2011

“… the idea that Occupy Wall Street protesters have a right to share directly in the private profits earned by others is immoral. The protesters were correct in being outraged by having to share in Wall Street’s losses. But if they do not want to share the losses, they have no right to demand a share of the profits.” (http://www.europac.net/commentaries/defense_1)

Ah, logic, such a painful taskmaster of truth it is.  Schiff really brings home the absurdity of the cognitive dissonance that has been created by this insane giant counterfeit ponzi scheme that we call our economy – that those who are protesting having money taken from their pockets against their will and given to others, demand as a solution the forced legal transfer of this increasingly ephemeral ‘wealth’ BACK into their alleged hands, that this circuitous shell game may continue ad nauseum.

See, Socialists make their money like bankers – by skimming off the top of a system of wealth storage and transfer.  While Capitalism has its wealth producing qualities, I think people forget that the money itself is inert – it is what people are motivated to DO with it that creates wealth, or waste, as the case may be.

But to the Socialist, this inherent quality of money is wholly lost.  They hoard cheese as if it will last forever, and never grow moldy or rot.  The worst wolves of greed dressed up in cute little bonnets, this cultish political religion is merely another potential income stream in an inherently Capitalist reality – a means to effect large scale wealth transfer, by force of arms, and simultaneously creating a centralization of that wealth as a necessary step in its puportedly morally justifiable confiscation and so called ‘redistribution’.

More than anything, this kind of system distorts the true economic reality of a nation and its people, creating an environment so false that it becomes impossible to tell when it is no longer working.  The solution is always more taxes, as if this is equivalent to an order for rain to fall, crops to grow in fields, fruit to grow on trees… as if more taxes have ANYTHING to do with wealth generation at all.

Ultimately, the ideal environment for the Socialist is a whirlwind of money changing hands arbitrarily, with fees collected at every step of the charade.  It is the social equivalent of setting up toll booths on every corner, and then ordering people by law to drive at least ten miles a day.  Well, people will find a way to manage their daily lives around such psychotic corruption, and the government may well thrive – but in this model, the true source of societal wealth occurs completely outside the activities of government, who simply perches itself on top as ultimate controller of all, purely to service its own inherently usurping ends.

So while the banks literally lend the government the money for their own bailouts – or at least participate in the creation of the financial instruments used to effect the alleged existence of this ‘money’ – and the government first GIVES the banks trillions of dollars, now the level of informed debate is about taxing it back again?!?!?  Huh?!?!  Does anyone smell a rat here?!?!

Well, imo, that ‘rat’ is the true purpose of all these bizarre machinations – keep the money moving around, that your fees and taxes (two sides of the same coin by now) may be added onto it incrementally at every transaction point.  This is a dangerous model for a culture, in fact it is little more than a free for all.

As Peter Schiff says – corporations don’t pay taxes, they dump them onto the consumer.  Tax them and you tax yourself.  You can tax them out of existence, but you can’t tax them into a self-generating source of true wealth – that will always be drawn from their customer base, every last cent of it.  So when they ARE taxed, one of the ways they find their way around this kind of thing is government subsidies and outright bailouts, all driven by unlimited fiat currency availability via the carefully constructed entity that is government today.

This is taxation by both the hidden tax of inflation and in fact outright counterfeit, the creation of ‘digital currency’ opening the doors WIDE for this kind of economic manipulation.  Only when the government prints money out of thin air, it is now furthermore compelled to pay interest on this counterfeit!!?!?!  On the flipside of this new pool of ‘wealth’ now centralized in concentrically tighter and more wide reaching rings of bureaucracy ie municipal, state, federal govts, are the tools to effect virtually unlimited tranfer of this wealth directly into private hands ie CDOs, Derivatives, etc.

Spun into these derivatives etc are hidden all the digital counterfeit that has been built into this illusion of secure financial holdings, masquerading as high return investments with a risk of disaster that can never occur, as it would mean the end of the system itself, an unthinkable scenario (to the average person, anyways – probably a hot topic at lotsa board meetings, though).

So this is a rough characterization of that sub-class of the wealthy whose riches are intrinsically tied to the government machinations and regulations that once purportedly kept them in check, which have now not only been brushed aside, but have in fact become a vehicle for fraud in and of themselves.

And this is where we are at now – government regulation as a vehicle for fraud.  Theft at gunpoint recharacterized as ‘taxation as civic duty’.  With so much of this driven by digital counterfeit fiat currencies, one has to wonder how much of the 40% of the world’s ‘wealth’ that the ‘1%’ control, is actually REAL?

By demanding this counterfeit be taxed BACK to ‘save the poor’, in fact PARTICIPATES in the fraud itself, and sets in motion yet another run round the flag pole, slapping fivers in the hand of endless bankers and bureaucrats at every turn (and when you run around a flagpole, it’s one long turn…;).

That is my attempt to unravel this madness – and I think that Schiff’s quote gets to the heart of the matter : Demanding that the bailouts come from the taxes of the rich makes no sense whatsoever – no matter how much you tax them, they will just effectively print more money into their own hands to pay said taxes, so you merely tax yourself further, directly and via inflation.

Justifying these taxes by first giving these folk TRILLIONS in bailouts is not just the schizophrenic policy it appears on the surface, it is simply the latest razzle dazzle trick to get that money up for another run around the track, where a pound of your flesh will be sliced off at every opportunity.

Asking for more taxes to effect MORE ‘redistribution’ of wealth by ARMED FORCE, merely signs on to the fraud.  Once you convince yourself it is ethical to take from others under threat of violence, you justify your own inevitable fate at the hand of such skewed logic.   If you don’t want your money stolen from you, don’t steal other people’s!!

October 6, 2011
With the ridiculous uproar of Hank Williams Jr.’s misunderstood analogy (he didn’t actually compare anyone to anyone – in fact it’s telling that everyone feels he meant to depict Obama as Hitler, does that make Boener Netanyahu?), I thought that football was a good way to demonstrate how true Market Capitalism can be distorted by Socialism, and further how even if Socialism might work, applying it to the current economic paradigm would in fact further the corrupt system robbing us all of our toils, by simply spreading the counterfeit around.
I am inspired here by a recent article I read claiming that 1% of the US population owns approx 40% of the country’s ‘wealth’.  http://thinkprogress.org/economy/2011/10/03/334156/top-five-wealthiest-one-percent/
So – imagine a football game, it’s the 4th quarter, and the Home Team is up 28 to 7.  Suddenly, Marxist Leninist agitators spur the losing team to take to the field and protest the unfair distribution of points. claiming that there is a finite number of points to be had, and that these should be shared equally between both teams.  This is Socialism in action.  Each team is given 17.5 points, and no one loses!!  Yay!!
Now, imagine a football game where the Home Team has had one of their buddies hijack the scoreboard, is putting up however many points they want to for themselves, and has paid off the referees to look the other way.  No matter how hard the Visiting Team tries, no matter how many touchdowns they score, their points are rendered irrelevant by the Home Team simply adding 5 times as many points to its score, to cheers from their fans, and a blind eye from officials.
Again the Marxist Leninist sympathizers take to the field, but instead of decrying the fraud, they demand a redistribution of these points, using the same old tired arguments that just because a person might be smarter than others, that doesn’t mean it’s fair for them to be better at math (for example).  Furthermore, they demand access to the scoreboard controls themselves, so that they too can add as many points to their team’s total as they please!
This is where the Socialists show their true colours – they are just as happy as Wall St. to add as many points to the scoreboard as they need to keep their fans cheering, and care just as little as the ‘Home Team’ about the integrity of the game.
But ultimately, the point I am trying to make is this : when people talk about 1% of the population owning 40% of the wealth, they neglect to point out that a considerable amount of that ‘wealth’ is FAKE – numbers in a ponzi scheme designed to obfuscate true economic realities.  To put it another way, if the total wealth of a given nation is represented by 100 Billion dollars of their currency, and a sinister cabal criminally prints up another $65 Billion to make themselves obscenely rich, the solution is not to redistribute that wealth killing conterfeit money to ‘the people’.  When these criminals created this $65 Billion out of thin air, they devalued the currency by approx 40% – what used to cost a dollar now costs $1.65.
Clearly the solution is to arrest this criminal cabal, destroy their counterfeit, and restore sound money.
Yet the ‘Socialists’ buy into the original fraud as a means justified by their dogmatic ends.  They don’t care that the ‘points’ are all fake, as long as they go to ‘their’ team.  Meanwhile the integrity of the game is lost, and the players lose any motivation to pursue points that have no relevance anymore, as they are just added to the scoreboard as needed by whomever manages to control the scoreboard at the time.  In fact, half the players don’t even bother to take to the field at all – instead, they form teams of ‘experts’ and ‘officials’ to oversee the manipulation of the scoreboard, as if deciding the game in this manner has any connection to reality at all.
So that’s what I see.  You can ‘redistribute’ all the counterfeit fiat currency you want, it will only plunge any economy further into poverty via a combination of inflation and people living off free fake money, rather than producing some kind of input into the culture around them that people actually have a use or desire to consume (demonstrated by their willingness to hand over hard earned legitimate currency in exchange).
4th Quarter, 3rd Down, and the players are horsing around on the field waiting the see who the scoreboard says will win, oblivious to the fact that it is meaningless relative to why they showed up to play in the first place, and why anybody ever cared to show up and watch.
Just as such a scenario would destroy the sport of Football overnight, what we are watching unfold economically is Endgame for our collective cultures as a whole.  These fiat currencies have distorted our societies to the point where true value is no longer represented, and warning signs of impending doom are obscured until it is too late.
When you centralize wealth and power, it will always be stolen.  Freedom is the answer, and sound money the most important cornerstone of all in this pursuit.  Spreading around the fake cash that has been created to effect a massive fraud against people worldwide may well divert true solutions to this impending nightmare until it is far, far too late.
