Do You Really Want to Know Why the U.S. Economy is Falling Apart?
It feels like everyone in this country is holding their breath. It feels like the fear is palpable. And, yes F.D.R. said that we have nothing to fear but fear itself but I would respectfully disagree with him at this stage in the game. What is going on? Why are we going through this economic tsunami? I think that there are definite reasons why we are experiencing turmoil in this country. It has happened because of the Federal Reserves omnipotent powers as talked about most thoroughly in the film called: The Money Masters because of greed stemming from corporations as seen on the film (located below) and because our leaders have been bought and paid for.
What most people don't know is that the Federal Reserve is NOT a government agency. They disseminate money into our economy and charge the taxpayers interest every time a dollar is printed. There is no reason, whatsoever, that we shouldn't be printing debt free money. We did this in the colonies (in the early days of our country) and Abraham Lincoln did it during the Civil War (a reason that some people think he was assassinated).
Even Thomas Jefferson is quoted as saying "I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs."
This is happening NOW!
To further exasperate the problem we have oil companies and other corporations that have consistently bribed and quelled any and all innovations that would benefit our country at the expense of their profit. I would highly recommend the book "Confessions of an Economic Hit Man. In this book he clearly lays out how corporations have decimated other countries under the guise of assistance. A good argument could be made that BP has done just that.
Other tactics include buying up any and all competition even if that competition is producing a better product that would not have us dependent upon foreign oil. This is clearly shown in this short film. This film discusses the invention of the "Air Car", a car that is run on compressed air and sold in France right now. Why isn't this car here in this country, hmmm?
Finally, we have good old fashioned corruption. Consistently, we have voted men and women into office to "clean up" the system and yet it's as corrupt as it has ever been. Have you ever wondered why? Have you ever wondered if the "good guys" might have been prevented from even entering into the system? What happens is that the figure heads change but the true power brokers stay the same. Those people are the advisers and the men and woman behind the scenes. Administrations come and go but these people never change. They are the people from the "think tanks" otherwise known as "The Wise Men", they belong to the Council on Foreign Relations, The Carnegie Institute and The Trilateral Commission among others. These are the advisers to the President, they are the people behind the scenes. They always come from the same schools and belong to the same organizations. They are the people who really run the country.
They want us poor, uneducated and ultimately dead. The Georgia Guidestones blatantly announce that the goal is to have a population of no more than 500 million. Do the numbers, it doesn't bode well. I hope we have learned our lessons from the concentration camp system of World War II, do not wait until you are too weak to fight, do not let them confiscate our guns, do not let them win.
These people run the media, put ideas into action and pretty much manipulate the masses and until we all become aware of the reality of the situation we will continue to be manipulated, lied to and ravished. It is not about left or right, liberal or conservative or Republican or Democrat any longer. The time is now, the situation is dire and I hope that enough of us will rise up and demand the rights that our forefathers fought for.
