Suppose I Told You:

That our current political and economic civilization is doomed?  That it is mathematically and physically unsustainable?  That it is even now in the process of collapsing like the “house of cards” it is?   Yet it is all true.

The chaos and pandemonium that is coming is not going to be the end of the world, or some biblical inevitable “apocalypse”, but simply the inexorable consequences of “cause and effect”.  We, or those we choose to lead us, have done it all to ourselves.  The Gulf Oil volcano that is killing the ecosystems along the entire Gulf from Mexico to the Florida Keys and beyond, is about nothing but material greed, exploitation, acquisition of power – money.

The US military presence in the Middle East (Afghanistan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Israel, Jordan, etc) has many pretenses, but behind them all lie control of natural resources, particularly oil, and religious Zionism – the mistaken belief that “God” favors certain “chosen peoples” over has other children.  The monstrous atrocities that are occurring as a result of US involvement go far beyond Abu Ghraib.  But war is good business, and when different branches of the same family sell guns and ammo to all of the various combatants, its even better.  We still haven’t learned the difference between defense and offense when it comes to profitable wars.

Climate change, the accelerated release of hydrocarbons, carbon dioxide, methane,  and other “greenhouse gasses, melting glacial and polar ice, changing global oceanic currents that cool or warm the planet all threaten our very habitat on this planet – human survival itself.  We are rapidly reaching, and may have already reached a “tipping point” in an accelerating cycle of change we may be unable to stop.

Why are we doing these suicidal things?  Are we collectively insane?  In a very real sense, perhaps we are, or at least our leaders and decision-makers could be.  But if this is true, how could it be happening?  How could so many people be so tragically and self-destructively deceived?

The answer may lie in those cultural institutions that affect us, our minds and spirits, our attitudes, values and goals the most.  What are these things?  What are the means by which culture, values, mores, ethics, and beliefs are passed from one generation to another?  Let’s list some of them:  parents, siblings, families, education, schools, media, videos, films, games, music, TV, radio, newspapers, magazines, textbooks, the internet, and all the stories, myths, records, fables, histories, theories, adventures, hopes, and dreams, etc.  These are some of the things that make up our paradigms of what we consider to the “real”, or “true”.  What IS “real” or “true”?  Are our thoughts about reality, our ultimate values, conditioned by those that control our main institutions?  What runs those institutions: schools, publishers, Hollywood film studios, recording labels, television stations, cable companies, satellite services, etc?  The answer is “MONEY”.  And who controls the money?  Banks and Financiers.  Wall Street, City of London, International Monetary Fund (IMF), World Bank, BIS and so on.

So let me ask, if nearly all the wealth and money is controlled by very few people (and this IS the case) then wouldn’t “they” have a huge influence on what people think, believe and the way they behave?  Those who control the money and wealth control (or influence) everything we see on tv, hear on the radio, read in books (including textbooks), see and do in schools, the industries we work in, the levels of employment, conditions of employment, and most other things you can think of.  Now consider that your parents, uncles, aunts, grandparents, etc., have also been conditioned (although perhaps not in the same ways or degrees) by these same money-brokers/controllers, and you may begin to get a hazy piece of the big picture.

Jesus of Nazareth said that at the end of this age “many will be deceived”.  It seems that “many” may have been an understatement!  Even most that know enough to realize they’ve been deceived seldom know exactly how and by whom.  This was acknowledged hundreds of years ago by the original modern Central Bankers in London.

“The few who can understand the (monetary) system (of checks, money and credits) will either be so interested in its profits, or so dependent on its favors, that there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of the people, mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that capital derives from the system, will bear its burdens without complaint, and perhaps without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interest. — ROTHSCHILD BROTHERS OF LONDON  The historical record is filled with other revelations about money and banking that almost nobody but the top bankers know.

To those who have seen the film, “The Matrix” can think of our current world situation in very similar terms.  In fact all of the major heroic sagas of the past century have drawn their success from the conscious or subconscious recognition in them of the plight of our own world, even though the exact cause-effect relationship may not be recognized.  Some of these are Star Wars, Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings”, Wizard of Oz, Total Recall, and others too numerous to list.  All are of the Light Vs Dark theme, but few explicitly draw the relationship between the dark forces and those who control and issue the MONEY.

That’s the relationship I’d most like to emphasize here.  Jesus’ only act approaching violence (although he harmed no one) was in driving the “money changers” (bankers) out of the temple at Jerusalem.  He realized the insidious relationship between entrenched power and the control of money, and its encroachment on the personal relationship between man and God.

If we have indeed “doomed” a part of our current civilization, then we must replace it with something better, or the cycle will only be repeated.  It will be repeated as many times as is needed in order for man to learn to live in harmony with the laws of the universe, and create a society that pleases our Creator.  That would be one that properly utilizes all the laws of universal creation: Attraction, Intention, Allowance and Harmony (balance).

The end of one thing is often necessary to prepare the way for the beginning of something better.  Perhaps we are approaching a time of “new beginnings”?  If we are, then what “better ways” can you imagine?

The Battle Lines Draw Near and Clear

The Battle Lines Draw Near and Clear

A revised and expanded edition of an earlier post on June 8, 2010.

My days left here on Earth are growing shorter, but there is a message of grave importance to this entire planet I want to leave for those who will listen to it, whether in this generation or those to follow.  It may help some who are now going through it to understand, and make the best of their situations, even to envision new paradigms and methods of survival and evolution, or it could help survivors in future generations to understand what happened, and why.  It is a message that contains both good and bad news to all who are hearing it for the first time.  Remember this is a simplified summary.  Detailed support of the facts cited is contained in thousands of references from which these conclusions are drawn.

First the bad news:

We Live in a Terminally Ill and Dysfunctional World Civilization

It now appears that people are not going to awaken to the multitudes of approaching unprecedented catastrophes, and the reasons for them, in time to avert them.  That opportunity passed into history about 50 years ago.  Lessening the impact for masses of humanity has been the only option for several decades now, but that cannot happen until the causes of our possibly fatal disease are discerned, fully diagnosed, and proper corrective treatments implemented at the source of the illness.  Until that happens, all attempts to remedy the growing economic, political, and social calamities will only make matters worse, and strengthen the dark forces that wish to destroy most of humanity, and enslave the rest.

These “dark powers” gain popular acceptance by operating under the guise, and banner of “freedom” and “liberty” without equal measures of restraint, responsibility, or accountability to society for the harm they do in the process of this exploitation of the more responsible concepts of “freedom”.

The reader might well ask if s/he could be reading this correctly.  How could anything be wrong with such noble standards as “freedom” or “liberty”?  And this difficulty of conceptual understanding the difference between helpful and harmful “liberty” and “freedom” really is at the core of our world’s problems.  If it could only be more widely known that the pre-historic rebellion against the order of God’s Universe of Universes arose under the banner of freedom, liberty, and ultra-individualism! The ancient “War in Heaven” was all about high Celestial beings or administrative “Angels” declaring that their authority was above and independent of their Creators.  Lucifer, Satan, and other high spiritual authorities declared their independence from God, and went into rebellion, sin and iniquity.  This spiritual War in Heaven was real.  Although bodies and forms were not in jeopardy, the souls and eternal survival of all participating entities, spiritual or material were at stake.   Again, the issue of liberty and freedom is complex, and involves maturity, responsibility, altruism, compassion, and good will toward others in order to make it healthy.  Too much liberty for one can mean enslavement for another.  There must be a balance.  Putting guns in the hands of children isn’t really a good idea, much less nuclear weapons.  Think about it.

Contrary to most contemporary teaching today, it is these dark forces who are collectively “the Anti-Christ” in biblical prophetic writings.  It is a group appellation, not one being.  The primary being who is orchestrating these dark activities on this planet is not immortal, is subject to eventual personality extinction, but is very long-lived, and is intelligent beyond human imagination.   He has been allowed to remain here, although greatly reduced in power, until all beings, spiritual and human, have made ultimate choices for either good or evil.  This is why complex large-scale schemes can be implemented that take many generations to come into fruition, such as our current world money and central banking scheme.  This scheme has been used to transfer much of the wealth of the planet into the hands of the few who make up this “Anti-Christ” or anti-Creative force.  Wealth equates to power and control over others, and it is the “control” that is the ultimate goal of massive private or corporate fortunes.

Hard to believe?

Yes, currently.  Yet most of those reading this 50 years from now will have little trouble seeing the truths in this message.  The evidence will lie strewn all around them.  It already is, had we but eyes with which to see.  We are living in an age of universal deception.  We are being programmed from birth to accept the most monstrous of lies, no matter how illogical or immoral, if they come from the “proper authorities”, or if they provide us with money, wealth, power or some advantage over others.  (For example, it’s OK to horribly torture someone as long as authorities claim its in the interests of “national security”.  Or, it’s OK to invade another nation, kill their citizens,  and occupy their lands as long as the claim is made that they are some “threat” to us.)

But all these lies are self-destructive, even of those things they are intended to achieve or preserve.  They are leading us down a path that will eventually destroy the earth’s inhabitants, and even the capacity to sustain life, or at least the higher forms of it, including ourselves.  Is this rational?  Is it sane?  Hardly, but the dark forces and their mortal agents to which we are giving permission to control us are not sane.  They, both the mortal and celestial controllers, are psychopaths and sociopaths who have lost the power to make rational decisions that are connected to the welfare and interests of larger groups of humanity.  In case the reader is unclear as to the accurate definitions of the terms “psychopath” and “sociopath, I suggest looking them up in a reliable dictionary.  A key ingredient of both is a lack of feeling, sympathy, or concern for those they exploit (harm), deceive or manipulate to their nefarious ends.

Think, for a moment.  Wasn’t the derivatives and credit default swaps that resulted in the great banking collapse, and bailout, of 2008 based on packages of bad (sub-prime) mortgages bundled together and sold as AAA, or “prime” investments, a scam?  It was a deception on a grand scale from the start, geometrically bigger than anything Bernie Madoff imagined.  It’s hard to imagine criminal enterprises that dwarf the “Mafia” or organized crime syndicates, yet the proof of their existence is indisputable to all that simply look at the evidence.

Are the Savings and Loan crashes of 1989, Enron, AIG, Banking “bailouts”, the collapse of GM and Chrysler, Lehman Brothers, Bear-Stearns, Iceland, Greece, and so much more “just coincidences”?  Not to trained eyes.

These are failures at the deepest systemic levels, where money creation is involved.

I have written much over the years on political and economic freedom and reforms, and how mankind can achieve those ideals of our Founders, and transform them from dreams into actual realities.  However, my writings are not widely read, or credited, by either the people in general or the “authorities” and traditional academics.  Others have written much better works, and been more widely read, but often the best of these cannot even get their works published today, and if published earlier, they have been “blacklisted”, unfairly criticized, and otherwise labeled, suppressed, and demeaned by the current “powers that be” or “controlling authorities”, i.e., the MONEY POWERS.  Pres. Martin van Buren always capitalized the term.

Broadly speaking it is this “Money Power” that is now in control of nearly all national governments, and our world at large.

Those who create, control and regulate the money of nations (or any sized economy) control (rule) those nations.  They control elections, key appointments, the press, TV, radio, and entertainment media.  They meet in many various groups, cartels, councils and boards (such as the Bilderbergers, Fed, IMF, World Bank, WTO, NATO, etc.) in order to coordinate their policies and efforts toward a world monetary system, and world government, controlled by the chief power brokers (Money-Masters) among them.  In other words, these money-masters are master-minding a new world order based on their private control of money, banking, trade, commerce, media and all governments except those they consider enemies to their plans and purposes.  Iran, Iraq, Syria, North Korea, Venezuela and Argentina have been among those who have recently been on their “hit-list” of such “enemy” nations.  Remember this new world order will be based upon “their” private (or corporate) wealth and “their” private money.  Governments who try to “nationalize”, or regain “sovereignty” over their control of money and natural resources will be marginalized, labeled, and turned into international “bad guys”, criminal or outlaw nations and leaders.  All are marching to the drums of the IMF, BIS, WB, WTO, and central banks, and the drumbeat is economic and political globalization of a monopolistic and tyrannical nature.

Those who control money control the earth, and everything in it.

Let that sink in a moment before considering this next truth:

The “Money Powers” have stolen US Democratic Government from “we the people” and replaced it by “we the corporations”.

This has not been a quick or easy thing to achieve.  It has required more than 2 centuries so far.  Rulings by the Supreme Court, and clerical mistakes interpreted as rulings, have elevated the status of corporations to that of “legal persons”, or more appropriately “super-persons”.  A clerk erroneously footnoted a SCOTUS decision claiming that the court had already settled the issue of corporate personhood, when it actually had never been addressed.  This “footnote” came to be accepted as established corporate law.  (See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corporate_personhood_debate )

The private (or corporate) “money cartel” has almost completely usurped the ideals and purposes for which the US of A was founded, and it has trashed most of the US Constitution in the process.  The USA was founded with the purpose to free us from the top-down, monopolistic control over colonial government and money then imposed upon us by the British.  That is what the War of Independence, or Revolutionary War was about.  “Taxation without representation” was just a simplistic “sound-bite” that became a slogan, but it was really about the tyranny of money, English money, created and controlled by the Bank of England since 1694!  By 1776, the time of the Revolution, the Bank of England had replaced the Sovereign State (in this instance the monarch, or king) as the authority over the creation and control of MONEY.  They had been granted a corporate monopoly in banking by the kings in order to better extend, manage and control the growing British Empire, and the flow of revenue and resources that empire created.  The monarchs and money monopolies effective merged in order to rule the world at that time, with some nominal input from the nobility that composed parliaments, House of Lords, Commoners, etc.  Few people recognize this merger of state and corporate power by the modern name Mussolini gave it: Fascism.  But that is an appropriate definition of this top-down control by monarchs and money monopolies.  (Notice the word similarities between these words.  They all contain the root, “mon”, meaning “one” of some kind of thing, rule or power.)  In summary, Musolini coined the modern word, Fascism to represent the combination or merger of state (military) and private financial (industrial & monetary) powers.

Dwight D. Eisenhower warned the American people in his 1961 exit speech of the rising threat of “Military-Industrial” interests, and the limited ability for governments to control that threat.  Sadly John F Kennedy, who followed Eisenhower as president was to experience that inability directly.  Decades before, FDR had also warned that fascist combinations of power were growing too large for government to control.

According to the checks and balances intended in the US Constitution, congress was to be in control of creating and controlling money and regulating its value. But private bankers with ties to the Bank of England have attempted to regain that control since the birth of our nation, and have finally succeeded.  The first major rift in US politics was that between Jefferson and Hamilton, and that philosophical division resulted in the creation of the two major political parties that became the Democratic Party and the Republican Party.  Simply stated, the rift was over the issue of aristocratic (or top-down, Hamiltonian) control of government and banking or democratic (bottom-up, Jeffersonian) control.  In other words the question was, would the new representative government “coin” (create) money, or would private (corporate) banking monopolies control it via government license, or corporate charters.  This single issue has been the overriding one in the history of our newly formed nation, the US of A.  Three private US chartered banks have been established, and many of the early presidents fought for their abolition, Jefferson, Madison, Jackson, Van Buren, and Lincoln among them.  The first two central banks were eventually defeated, the third was thrust upon the American people in 1913 by fraud and deception, and still exists today as the “Federal Reserve System” which is neither “Federal” (or governmental) or has any real “reserves” of anything other than promises based on faith and trust, ironically, of their primary client and customer, the US of A and it’s people.

The formation of a money system (as well as a representative government) separate and apart from the Bank of England and other European central bank models was a learning process, and the proper role for, and creation of, money was new ground for those not long part of the money aristocracy.  Many ancient and some more modern philosophical models were unknown to the founders.  Many new and, IMO, far superior money models have been advanced in the past 200 years that would return the benefit (profit, or interest) to the people, instead of greed-driven private banking interests.  I have cited these in my websites, primarily https://wealthmoney.wordpress.com and among the thousands of comments to be found on Ellen H Brown’s website, http://webofdebt.wordpress.com that I help moderate for her.  Health problems have caused me to be rather inactive of late, both on Web of Debt and my own site, where this will probably be first posted.  The point is that those who really run the world, the money powers, have used our government as “cover” for their various nefarious actions.  Blame and accountability for economic and environmental disasters caused by them are diverted to government and bureaucracy, or any other convenient scapegoat or perceived enemy.  These money powers are a malignant “Wizard of Oz”, hiding behind the dark curtain, manipulation the sights and sounds around us.

What are the results of this “manipulation” from behind the scenes?  The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 was the lever for all that followed.  Boom and bust economics, the Great Depression of 1929-1940 sandwiched between two world wars (both sides of which were financed and armed by the central banks) and a 40 year “cold war” that transferred massive wealth from the people to the banks and governments on both sides in the making of war machinery and weapons systems.  But the most notable thing is that there is a never-ending series of foreign wars. And the justifications for them. They are needed to keep using up the accumulated stores of weapons and ammunition, and to justify upgraded replacement expenditures, and to keep a “professional standing armed forces” at battle-ready levels.  The results are unsustainable and unpayable levels of National Debt and budget deficits, 60% or more of the income of average citizens going to pay ever-increasing national, state, local and value-added or import taxes.  The result in ever-increasing personal and public debt, and the accompanying interest burden it carries.  In other words, we are borrowing ourselves into national, state and personal debt-servitude.  Slavery is a more dramatic, but appropriate, word.

Yet, borrowing by governments is immoral, irrational, and even insane!

Why should “sovereign” governments borrow from private investment banks what they have the natural and constitutional right to create for themselves? Money is but a claim on goods (products) and services (labor). A dollar, for instance, need not be redeemable by gold or silver, but a dollar’s worth of products is sufficient.  So is a dollar’s worth of labor.  A government that issues a dollar (mark, pound, peso, etc.) can demand an equivalent and established amount of labor or goods in exchange for it. Money creation and the establishment and maintenance of its value is a sovereign right of governments, especially democratically elected ones.

The results of unlimited private financial greed and unearned profits are even more appalling in their environmental impact.  It appears likely that private of corporate interests will claim rights to the earth’s water, or even the air we breathe, and find ways to charge us or tax us for these life-sustaining sustenance.  They are already laying the legal and corporate foundations for doing so.  The oil and gas multi-nationals have been looting those resources from people in other nations for decades.  The mining and lumber has been exploited for much longer, hundreds and even thousands of years.  But finally, the ability to completely destroy our earthly habitat has arrived, and we seem determined to find out if unbridled greed and lust for power can achieve that suicidal end.

Witness the sorry result of “drill, baby, drill” in the Gulf of Mexico, where not only species of animals are going to become extinct, but also the employment and livelihoods of millions, even tens of millions of people.

The bankers and their corporate giant partners are not only imploding the world’s economy, but also it very habitat. It is threatening the very existence of hundreds of millions of people, now living and as yet unborn.  Yet this wicked cabal of greed-motivated entities is in denial on every main point covered herein.  They see no oil spill because their assessment of the possibility of one happening was “zero” according to the application submitted to the government for permission to drill the disastrous deep-water well.  Furthermore, they have no legal liability beyond a paltry $75 million because of recent “tort reforms” that capped that liability at that number.  So claims of US citizens ever recovering much of the losses are patently false and misleading.  It will remain for the “people” to continue picking up and cleaning up the environmental cost until the rules of the game are changed.  If BP goes bankrupt they will expect “the people” (our government) to bail them out, because they are “too big to fail”.  No private corporation should ever be allowed to become “too big to fail”. Just stop it.  Break them up.  Change the appropriate corporate laws to disallow such uncontrollable, unaccountable economic power.

Climate change, melting polar ice, oceanic current changes, weather pattern changes, all with take their toll.  Soon, the environmental destruction to our planet’s capacity to sustain life will be self-evident to all.  By that time it will be too late to halt the destruction, and the inevitable loss of life and cultures will be the result.  It will require hundreds, if not thousands of years, for the planet to regain its balance and a new a deeper “dark age” could ensue.  I grieve at the prospects, yet cycles of empire, progress and culture rise and fall over far more years than our current historians know.  Those that cannot find and hold onto the light fall back into darkness.  It is Universal Law, the very laws of Heaven itself, and the Universe Creators.  Justice, as we see it, is slow, but it is certain.

By now you might well be asking, “so what’s the good news?”

The good spiritual news is that no one, no power, either of light or darkness can control your survival decisions.  You have an inner choice to cooperate and participate in (create) either good or evil.  Only you can choose your attitude toward either.  It is your intentions that are ultimately all-important.  The “Creative Spirit” indwells all who welcome it, and give it nourishment. However, it will not long endure a hostile or negative environment, or mind.  The mind is the host of the creative spirit, and it will create, for better or worse, according to your free-will intentions.  There is so much more that can be revealed about Universal Laws, or Spiritual Laws that are beyond the scope of this paper.  Suffice it to say that “those who seek shall find, and those who knock will have the doors opened to them”.

The “materialistic good news” is that good solutions for all our most serious problem exist, and can be implemented within a generation or so if the popular will can be found to do so.

Alternative systems for money and energy already exist, or can be found, created or developed much more quickly and easily that existing “conventional wisdom” wants us to believe.  Small groups and communities can pave the way for larger successes.  My writings have been primarily about the abuse of money, and the elimination of private (or corporate) debt-created money, and the substitution for it of the wealth and assets of the “people” or the commonwealth – in other words, the national government or state or local (community) governments.  Ben Franklin and others have written extensively about such Colonial Script, and its enormous contribution to the wealth and prosperity of pre-Revolutionary America of the 1700’s.  Others such as Ellen Brown and Stephen Zarlenga have formulated alternatives to the current Federal Reserve controlled system.  They should be studied, and if they cannot be implemented on national or state levels they should be tried on the community level.  There are many such experimental “intentional” or “sustainable” communities springing up in many places.  Findhorn and Fairhope are just two examples.

Systems of alternative energy will not be fully implemented until the private interests that now unfairly control out planet’s resources have been replaced with better stewards of those resources. The technologies will not be developed, or released for utilization by these interests, until the current profits are drained to the last drop.  But these “natural” resources belong to God’s creation, Earth, anyhow, so why are they exploited by only a few corporate profit-masters?  The short answer is that they should not be.  The first man to walk on the earth had no right to claim it all to himself.  Nor did he that took the first breath have title to the air, or him that first drank water to claim it as his.  When and how did such titular rights take root, and become “property rights”?  Think on this.

Where do we draw the line on what can belong to an entity (person, community, state, nation or corporation) by claim of “first use” and what cannot, and must remain for all the rest of humanity to use for sustenance and maintenance?  These are questions that we as cultures have yet to adequately resolve.  As yet, we have not even begun to debate them.  Why?  I believe the answers lie within these pages and the books or articles referred to on my websites.

So, the “good news” is partially that there are good answers and better alternative ways of doing things.  The prime question is whether we can find the will to align “our will” to “God’s will” and live more harmoniously in tune with the forces of the universe of universes?  And if so, can we overcome the immense forces of darkness that oppose that will, and seek its own preeminence and repair the damage done to our planet in the conflict?   I believe that the answer to all these questions is a definitive “yes”.  We have “friends in high places” who are willing to help groups who decide to help themselves.  I do not believe that God or His agencies will do for us what we refuse to undertake to do for ourselves, our children and our grandchildren, even to the seventh and 70th generations.  Our actions today will determine the course of this planet for the next 1000 years!

But be cautioned.  Dark and evil methods cannot be used to combat darkness.   Only light and its methods can win against darkness.  Open revolt and revolution is what “they” are prepared and waiting for.  Razor-wired and electrified fenced compounds await those that foment armed revolution.  There are enough of them in the US of A to hold millions, and more can be built as quickly as needed.  In addition, it is in the chaos of open rebellion and armed resistance that they are planning to use the public’s fear of chaos and disorder to install the final pieces into their totalitarian fascist militaristic empire.  The fear of “terrorism” has already been instilled, and the laws to deal with those labeled “terrorists” or “insurrectionists” are already in place.  Martial law will be declared where they deem it needed or useful, perhaps even over entire nations.

Remember that government is now under the nearly complete control of the “Money-Powers” and their most powerful corporate multi-nationals.  Until that changes, and changes via means and methods in harmony with Universal Laws, the only weapons we have are our positive and creative imaginations.  We must imagine new ways of acting and reacting.  We must imagine alternative economic and social groupings.  We must restore our sense of community and community relationships.  This includes family relationships.  We must redefine what is essential for our continued growth and evolution in body, mind and spirit and how to continue to get these essentials on a sustainable basis.  Obtaining spiritual food is perhaps the most overlooked, but important aspect of the above.  The Master once said, paraphrased, “seek first the kingdom of heaven (spiritual realities) and all else will be included”.  The best part is that these “realities” of the spirit need not be sought in the material world.  They can be found “within”, but they must be sought with unselfish motives.  After all it is selfishness that got into this mess in the first place.

It is most important to bear in mind that “government” is not the enemy.  It is the scapegoat used by the enemy to blind you to the real enemy. The real enemy is the financial-military-industrial powers behind the government.  Until that is generally seen and understood there will be no remedy, and energies directed at correction will only serve to strengthen and entrench the real enemy: private unregulated financial power masquerading as “freedom” and “liberty”.  Government is the free and proper associations of groups and communities, and without it there is no civilization, no culture.  Civilization is dependent on government, whether self-government or other forms.  Self-government is the ideal, but is unsustainable without mature responsibility.   The forces of chaos want to attack the current government so that it fails completely rather than fix it, which should be the ideal.  Evolution is always preferable to revolution if good outcomes are desired.

Perhaps best of all “good news” is that no dark or rebellious power, spiritual or otherwise, can deprive any living mortal from choosing (willing) a path of eternal survival. That is the path of positive and balanced creative intention.  It is the path of wisdom and worship.  It is the path of loyalty to supreme values.  All who sincerely seek to find the Creator will eventually do that and so very much more.  The post-mortal career of those who choose to find and follow God’s will is far greater than human imagination can conjure or dare hope for.  As many may join in this grand adventure as choose to do so.  There are no numerical or size limitations whatsoever.

Significant inhumane incidents are already underway, many of which go unreported or unnoticed. The Gulf spill can hardly go unnoticed as it is right under our noses, but other disasters and massive human tragedies are successfully hidden from our US eyes.  Trafficking in pernicious drugs and even human slaves for sex or labor is a lucrative and thriving enterprise all over this planet.  Authorities are often involved, or accept bribes and favors to “look the other way”.   If labor to harvest mines and forests cannot be enslaved directly, then economic conditions are created that accomplish the same purposes, and subsistence wages are paid, and sometimes not even that. The widespread human tragedies in the Middle East go largely unnoticed by US citizens because of poor and biased coverage by our news sources, most of which pay homage to corporate bosses and the so-called “profit-motive”.  Coal, gold and diamond miners are sacrificed in huge numbers to extract these resources.  Even in Appalachia a miner must make a choice to go into an unsafe mine or feed his family.  No one should have to endure that choice.  Even criminals of today are treated better than that.  To do otherwise is deemed “inhumane” treatment.

It is time to act, or at least figure out which side you are on, and why.  “Freedom” does not mean the right for the rich and strong to enslave others, or deprive them of the basics required to remain alive.  Yet that is happening to entire populations and races of peoples.

This is not my usual blog on money and economics.  But time is running out.  Things have gotten so much worse in the past months, faster than even I had imagined.  It’s time to declare that my writings have had a much wider spiritual purpose than I deemed wise to emphasize before.  The planet is in need of spiritual re-birth, and recognition of our common spiritual indwelling and the unseen source of that indwelling.   We are all of one spiritual source (parentage) and are therefore spiritual brothers and sisters.

I urge the reader/seeker to search these pages for answers or referrals to works that contain answers, or to ask questions.  I will do my best to answer them, here or on Ellen Brown’s blogsite.

The Battle Lines Draw Clear and Near

June 8, 2010

Now in my 70’s and with chronic health problems and considerable pain, my days left here on Earth are growing shorter.  But there is a message of grave importance to this entire planet I want to leave for those who will listen to it, whether in this generation or those to follow.  It may help those who are now going through it to understand, and make the best of their situations, even to envision new paradigms and methods of survival and evolution, or it will help survivors in future generations to understand what happened, and why.  It is a message that contains both good and bad news to all who are hearing it for the first time.  Remember this is a simplified summary.  Detailed support of the facts cited is contained in thousands of references from which these conclusions are drawn.

It now appears that people are not going to awaken to the multitudes of approaching unprecedented catastrophes, and the reasons for them, in time to avert them.  That opportunity passed into history about 50 years ago.  Lessening the impact for masses of humanity has been the only option for several decades now, but that cannot happen until the causes of our possibly fatal disease are discerned, fully diagnosed, and proper treatments implemented.  Until that happens, all attempts to remedy the growing economic, political, and social calamities will only make matters worse, and strengthen the dark forces that wish to destroy most of humanity, and enslave the rest.

The “dark forces” mentioned are those extra-mortal entities who are the remnant of those who led a rebellion against the creative deity, or “light forces” long ago, along with those mortals who have served them in exchange for temporal gain: wealth, money, power, and particularly the desire to control others, and to deny them their Creator-endowed rights of free-will choice.   Contrary to most contemporary teaching today, it is these dark forces who are collectively “the Anti-Christ” in biblical prophetic writings.  The being who is orchestrating these dark activities is not immortal, but is very long-lived, and is an intelligent administrator beyond human imagination.   This is why complex large-scale schemes can be implemented that take many generations to come into fruition, such as our current world money and central banking scheme.  This scheme has been used to transfer much of the wealth of the planet into the hands of the few who make up this “Anti-Christ” or anti-Creative force.  Wealth equates to power and control over others, and it is the “control” that is the ultimate goal of massive private or corporate fortunes.

Hard to believe?  Yes, currently.  Yet most of those reading this 50 years from now will have little trouble seeing the truths in this message.  The evidence will lie strewn all around them.  It already is, had we but eyes with which to see.  We are living in an age of universal deception.  We are being programmed from birth to accept the most monstrous of lies, no matter how illogical or immoral, if they come from the “proper authorities”, and if they provide us with money, wealth, power or some advantage over others.  But these lies are self-destructive, even of those things they are intended to achieve or preserve.  They are leading us down a path that will eventually destroy the earth’s capacity to sustain life, or at least the higher forms of it, including Homo Sapiens.  Is this rational?  Is it sane?  Hardly, but the dark forces and their mortal agents we are giving tacit assent to control us are not sane.  They, both the mortal and celestial controllers, are psychopaths and sociopaths who have lost the power to make rational decisions that are connected to the welfare and interests of larger groups of humanity.  In case the reader is unclear as to the accurate definitions of the terms “psychopath” and “sociopath, I suggest looking them up in a reliable dictionary.  A key ingredient of both is a lack of feeling, sympathy, or concern for those they exploit (harm), deceive or manipulate to their nefarious ends.

Think, for a moment.  Wasn’t the derivatives and credit default swaps that resulted in the great banking collapse, and bailout, of 1998 based on packages of bad (sub-prime) mortgages bundled together and sold as AAA, or “prime” investments, a scam?  It was a deception on a grand scale from the start, geometrically bigger than anything Bernie Madoff imagined.  It’s hard to imagine criminal enterprises that dwarf the “Mafia” or organized crime syndicates, yet the proof of their existence is indisputable to all that simply look at the evidence.  Are the Savings and Loan crashes of 1989, Enron, AIG, Banking “bailouts”, the collapse of GM and Chrysler, Lehman Brothers, Bear-Stearns, Iceland, Greece, and so much more “just coincidences”?  Not to educated eyes.  These are failures at the deepest systemic levels, where money creation is involved.

I have written much over the years on political and economic freedom and reforms, and how mankind can achieve those ideals of our Founders, and transform them from dreams into actual realities.  However, my writings are now widely read, or credited, by either the people in general or the “authorities” and traditional academics.  Others have written much better works, and been more widely read, but often the best of these cannot even get their works published today, and if published earlier, they have been “blacklisted”, unfairly criticized, and otherwise labeled, suppressed, and demeaned by the current “powers that be” or “controlling authorities”, i.e., the MONEY POWERS.  Pres. Martin van Buren always capitalized the term.  Broadly speaking it is this “Money Power” that is now in control of nearly all national governments, and our world at large.  Those who create, control and regulate the money of nations (or any sized economy) control (rule) those nations.  They control elections, key appointments, the press, TV, radio, and entertainment media.  They meet in many various groups, cartels, councils and boards (such as the Bilderbergers, Fed, IMF, World Bank, WTO, NATO, etc.) in order to coordinate their policies and efforts toward a world monetary system, and world government, controlled by the chief power brokers (Money-Masters) among them.  In other words, these money-masters are master-minding a new world order based on their private control of money, banking, trade, commerce, media and all governments except those they consider enemies to their plans and purposes.  Iran, Iraq, Syria, North Korea, Venezuela and Argentina have been among those who have recently been on their “hit-list” of such “enemy” nations.  Remember this new world order will be based upon “their” private (or corporate) wealth and “their” private money.  Governments who try to “nationalize”, or regain “sovereignty” over their control of money and natural resources will be marginalized, labeled, and turned into international “bad guys”, criminal or outlaw nations and leaders.  All are marching to the drums of the IMF, BIS, WB, WTO, and central banks, and the drumbeat is economic and political globalization of a monopolistic and tyrannical nature.

Let that sink in a moment before considering this next truth:

This private (or corporate) “money cartel” has almost completely usurped the ideals and purposes for which the US of A was founded, and it has trashed most of the US Constitution in the process.  The USA was founded with the purpose to free ourselves from the top-down, monopolistic control over colonial government and money.  That is what the War of Independence, or Revolutionary War was about.  “Taxation without representation” was just a simplistic “sound-bite” that became a slogan, but it was really about the tyranny of money, English money, created and controlled by the Bank of England since 1694!  By 1776, the time of the Revolution, the Bank of England had replaced the Sovereign State (in this instance the monarch, or king) as the authority over the creation and control of MONEY.  They had been granted a corporate monopoly in banking by the kings in order to better extend, manage and control the growing British Empire, and the flow of revenue and resources that empire created.  The monarchs and money monopolies effective merged in order to rule the world at that time, with some nominal input from the nobility that composed parliaments, House of Lords, Commoners, etc.  Few people recognize this merger of state and corporate power by the modern name Mussolini gave it: Fascism.  But that is an appropriate definition of this top-down control by monarchs and money monopolies.

According to the US Constitution, congress was to be in control of creating and controlling money and regulating its value.  But private bankers with ties to the Bank of England have attempted to regain that control since the birth of our nation.  The first major rift in US politics was that between Jefferson and Hamilton, and that philosophical division resulted in the creation of the two major political parties that became the Democratic Party and the Republican Party.  Simply stated, the rift was over the issue of aristocratic (or top-down, Hamiltonian) control of government and banking or democratic (bottom-up, Jeffersonian) control.  In other words the question was, would the new representative government “coin” (create) money, or would private (corporate) banking monopolies control it via government license, or corporate charters.  This single issue has been the overriding one in the history of our newly formed nation, the US of A.  Three private US chartered banks have been established, and many of the early presidents fought for their abolition, Jefferson, Madison, Jackson, Van Buren, and Lincoln among them.  The first two central banks were eventually defeated, the third was thrust upon the American people in 1913 by fraud and deception, and still exists today as the “Federal Reserve System” which is neither “Federal” (or governmental) or has any real “reserves” of anything other than promises based on faith and trust, ironically, of their primary client and customer, the US of A and it’s people.

The formation of a money system (as well as a representative government) separate and apart from the Bank of England and other European central bank models was a learning process, and the proper role for, and creation of, money was new ground for those not long part of the money aristocracy.  Many ancient and some more modern philosophical models were unknown to the founders.  Many new and, IMO, far superior money models have been advanced in the past 200 years that would return the benefit (profit, or interest) to the people, instead of greed-driven private banking interests.  I have cited these in my websites, primarily https://wealthmoney.wordpress.com and among the thousands of comments to be found on Ellen H Brown’s website, http://webofdebt.wordpress.com that I help moderate for her.  Health problems have caused me to be rather inactive of late, both on Web of Debt and my own site, where this will probably be first posted.  The point is that those who really run the world, the money powers, have used our government as “cover” for their various nefarious actions.  Blame and accountability for economic and environmental disasters caused by them are diverted to government and bureaucracy, or any other convenient scapegoat or perceived enemy.  These money powers are the “Wizard of Oz”, hiding behind the dark curtain, manipulation the sights and sounds around us.

What are the results of this “manipulation” from behind the scenes?  Boom and bust economics, the great depression of 1929-1940 sandwiched between two world wars (both sides of which were financed by the central banks) and a 40 year “cold war” that transferred massive wealth from the people to the banks and governments on both sides in the making of war machinery and weapons systems.  But the most notable thing is that there is a never-ending series of foreign wars.  They are needed to keep using up the accumulated stores of weapons and ammunition, and to justify upgraded replacement expenditures, and to keep a “professional standing armed forces” at battle-ready levels.  The results are unsustainable and unpayable levels of National Debt and budget deficits, 60% or more of the income of average citizens going to pay ever-increasing national, state, local and value-added or import taxes.  The result in ever-increasing personal and public debt, and the accompanying interest burden it carries.  In other words, we are borrowing ourselves into national, state and personal debt-servitude.  Slavery is a more dramatic, but appropriate, word.

Yet the results of unlimited financial greed and unearned profits are even more appalling in their environmental impact.  It appears likely that private of corporate interests will claim rights to the earth’s water, or even the air we breathe, and find ways to charge us or tax us for these life-sustaining sustenance.  They are already laying the legal and corporate foundations for doing so.  The oil and gas multi-nationals have been looting those resources from people in other nations for decades.  The mining and lumber has been exploited for much longer, hundreds and even thousands of years.  But finally, the ability to completely destroy our earthly habitat has arrived, and we seem determined to find out if unbridled greed and lust for power can achieve that suicidal end.

Witness the sorry result of “drill baby drill” in the Gulf of Mexico, where not only species of animals are going to become extinct, but also the employment and livelihoods of millions, even tens of millions of people.

The bankers and their corporate giant partners are not only imploding the world’s economy, but also it very habitat.  It is threatening the very existence of hundreds of millions of people, now living and as yet unborn.  Yet this wicked cabal of greed-motivated entities is in denial on every main point covered herein.  They see no oil spill because their assessment of the possibility of one happening was “zero” according to the application submitted to the government for permission to drill the disastrous deep-water well.  Furthermore, they have no legal liability beyond a paltry $75 million because of recent “tort reforms” that capped that liability at that number.  So claims of US citizens ever recovering much of the losses are patently false and misleading.  It will remain for the “people” to continue picking up and cleaning up the environmental cost until the rules of the game are changed.  Climate change, melting polar ice, oceanic current changes, weather pattern changes, all with take their toll.  Soon, the environmental destruction to our planet’s capacity to sustain life will be self-evident to all.  By that time it will be too late to halt the destruction, and the inevitable loss of life and cultures will be the result.  It will require hundreds, if not thousands of years, for the planet to regain its balance and a new a deeper “dark age” could ensue.  I grieve at the prospects, yet cycles of empire, progress and culture rise and fall over far more years than our current historians know.  Those that cannot find and hold onto the light fall back into darkness.  It is Universal Law, the very laws of Heaven itself, and the Universe Creators.

By now you might well be asking, “so what’s the good news?”

The good news is that good alternative systems for money and energy exist or can be found, created or developed much more quickly and easily that existing “conventional wisdom” wants us to believe.  My writings have been primarily about money, and the elimination of private (or corporate) debt-created money, and the substitution for it of the wealth and assets of the “people” or the commonwealth – in other words, the national government or state or local (community) governments.  Ben Franklin and others have written extensively about such Colonial Script, and its enormous contribution to the wealth and prosperity of pre-Revolutionary America of the 1700’s.  Others such as Ellen Brown and Stephen Zarlenga have formulated alternatives to the current Federal Reserve controlled system.

Systems of alternative energy will not be fully implemented until the private interests that now unfairly control out planet’s resources have been replaced with better stewards of those resources.  The technologies will not be developed, or released for utilization by them, until the current profits are drained to the last drop.  But these resources belong to God’s creation, Earth, anyhow, so why are they exploited by only a few corporate profit-masters?  The short answer is that they should not be.  The first man to walk on the earth had no right to claim it all to himself.  Nor did he that took the first breath have title to the air, or him that first drank water to claim it as his.  When and how did such titular rights take root, and become “property rights”?  Where do we draw the line on what can belong to an entity (person, community, state, nation or corporation) by claim of “first use” and what cannot, and must remain for all the rest of humanity to use for sustenance and maintenance?  These are questions that we as cultures have yet to adequately resolve.  As yet, we have not even begun to debate them.  Why?  I believe the answers lie within these pages and the books or articles referred to on my websites.

So, the “good news” is partially that there are good answers and better alternative ways of doing things.  The prime question is whether we can find the will to align “our will” to “God’s will” and live more harmoniously in tune with the forces of the universe of universes?  And if so, can we overcome the immense forces of darkness that oppose that will, and seek its own preeminence and repair the damage done to our planet in the conflict?   I believe that the answer to all these questions is a definitive “yes”.  We have “friends in high places” who are willing to help groups who decide to help themselves.  I do not believe that God or His agencies will do for us what we refuse to undertake to do for ourselves, our children and our grandchildren, even to the seventh and 70th generations.  Our actions today will possibly determine the course of this planet for the next 1000 years!

But be cautioned.  Dark and evil methods cannot be used to combat darkness.   Only light and its methods can win against dark forces.  Open revolt and revolution is what “they” are prepared and waiting for.  Razor-wired and electrified fenced compounds await those that foment armed revolution.  There are enough of them in the US of A to hold millions, and more can be built as quickly as needed.  In addition, it is in the chaos of open rebellion and armed resistance that they are planning to use the public’s fear of chaos and disorder to install the final pieces into their fascist militaristic empire.  The fear of “terrorism” has already been instilled, and the laws to deal with those labeled “terrorists” or “insurrectionists” are already in place.  Martial law will be declared where needed or useful.

Remember that government is now under the nearly complete control of the “Money-Powers” and their most powerful corporate multi-nationals.  Until that changes, and changes via means and methods in harmony with Universal Laws, the only weapons we have are our positive and creative imaginations.  We must imagine new ways of acting and reacting.  We must imagine alternative economic and social groupings.  We must restore our sense of community and community relationships.  This includes family relationships.  We must redefine what is essential for our continued growth and evolution in body, mind and spirit and how to continue to get these essentials on a sustainable basis.  Obtaining spiritual food is perhaps the most overlooked, but important aspect of the above.  The Master once said, paraphrased, “seek first the kingdom of heaven (spiritual realities) and all else will be included”.  The best part is that these “realities” of the spirit need not be sought in the material world.  They can be found “within”, but they must be sought with unselfish motives.  After all it is selfishness that got into this mess in the first place.

Perhaps best of all is that no dark or rebellious power, spiritual or otherwise, can deprive any living mortal from choosing (willing) a path of eternal survival.  All who sincerely seek to find the Creator will eventually do that and so very much more.  The post-mortal career of those who choose to find and follow God’s will is far greater than human imagination can conjure or dare hope for.  As many may join in this grand adventure as choose to do so.  There are no numerical or size limitations whatsoever.

Significant incidents are already underway, many of which go unreported or unnoticed.  The Gulf spill can hardly go unnoticed as it is right under our noses, but other disasters are successfully hidden from our US eyes.  The widespread human tragedies in the Middle East go largely unnoticed by US citizens because of poor and biased coverage by our news sources, most of which pay homage to corporate bosses and the so-called “profit-motive”.  It is time to act, or at least figure out which side you are on, and why.

This is not my usual blog on money and economics.  But time is running out.  Things have gotten so much worse in the past months, faster than even I had imagined.  It’s time to declare that my writings have a much wider spiritual viewpoint than I have thought wise to emphasize before.

I urge the reader/seeker to search these pages for answers or referrals to works that contain answers, or to ask questions.  I will do my best to answer them, here or on Ellen Brown’s blogsite.

Money Reform: The Big Picture

Yes,  there is a big picture, and bigger ones, and even a biggest picture, in terms of what can be seen though human eyes and grasped by the human mind.  For obvious reasons I’ve avoided much direct mention here of larger issues than money and government reforms.  It is too easy to quickly get lost in the depths, and lose the attention of many readers.  So I am purposely going to avoid details.  Subtleties can be dealt with on other pages or places.  What I have to say may sound strange to some, or even worse.  It can’t be helped; the time is past for euphemisms.  So here is the blunt truth, as I comprehend it in the waning years of my life.

This planet is headed for the mother of all “rough rides”.  What we are approaching, and even already into, is a convergence of “perfect storms”.  Not so much natural storms, although there will be those too, but man-made “storms” in almost all walks of life.  I want to stress the “man-made” focus, because it is important to separate such from the “divine” or “wrath of God” causation.  Ok, I’m already getting into deep water, so let’s get to the point.

Human beings of wealth and power have formed associations (syndicates or cabals) for the purpose of running our planet.  More specifically, these people are not nice or benignly intended, and their circles of power have gained control over every aspect of human life on our globe, even to being on the verge of inaugurating a planetary government, a global money and economic system and a global government that is totally under their control. They have, or will have, control of all major military forces and weaponry, majorities in all government branches of major G-8 (or G-22) nations, Most major economic, social, religious, educational, recreational, sports, and informational and educational institutions are already owned or controlled by their various branches – I think of them as tentacles.  Economics – control of money and resources (main ingredients of capital – leaving labor aside for the moment) is the major engine of amassing and controlling power.  That is why I emphasize money reform.  But control of land and resources is just as important, as they are the source of all wealth, along with labor, and money can generally buy labor when land is not available.

I write mostly about “money” and its creation, control, distribution and volume, because that it the major way “they” transfer wealth from us – working taxpaying citizens – to themselves.  Maybe we should give “them” a universally recognized name.  They have many names now.  “Illuminati” is a catch-all meaning “illumined ones”, a classic misnomer.  They are diabolically clever, smart, well-educated, knowledgeable, and greatly skilled in attracting money and power to themselves, but IMO they are not “illumined” in the sense that I understand the concept, that meaning “enlightened”.  The “Bilderbergers” are one of the key control groups, but along with them are a virtual alphabet soup of acronyms from around the world – CFR, WTO, NAFTA, NSA, CIA, IMF, BIS, WB, EU, NAU, NAM, NATO, and the list could go on and on.  All have roles to play in this new global economic and governmental scenario.

You probably already know this on some level, or if you don’t “know” it you suspect it.  Most simply refuse to look at the facts, and are in perpetual denial.  Some, of course, have aligned their choices and interests to serve these cabals of temporal power, and these would not be amenable to our ideas here.  Our message is for those who wish to align themselves with the side of light and truth – the “winning side”, eventually.  Those who align themselves with the universal creative forces and their operative universal laws must eventually “prevail”, even when appearances would make it seem otherwise.

The point to be grasped is that those now in control have set in motion this coming “perfect storm” of events – events that are actually inexorable consequences of unlimited greed, lust for money, power and control.  The corporation is the “Frankenstein Monster” of their creation that is heartless, soulless, and feeds on nothing but profits – money – no matter at what cost in environmental ruin and human misery.  Corporations are fictitious persons – entities – that replace and displace people as the central focus of our civilization.  In this system, people count, but mostly to the degree they serve the corporation, or corporate interests, and the interests of those investors who own or control the corporations.

The epitome of this Frankenstein is the Financial Corporation, or commercial and investment banks.  Corporations are properties given legal status as “persons” before the laws.  Of course this outrageous fiction will be corrected in time, even as was the fiction that certain persons could be the “property” of others, and bought and sold as chattel.  The envisaged new world economic order will attempt to re-institute wide-scale debt slavery though various economic disguises.  It is already doing so in ways cleverly concealed from most persons.  At some point disguises and concealment will no longer be necessary to their purposes, and will be largely dropped.  Those who are observant can already see this trend unfolding.

There is hope for those who are aware and willing to make the commitment toward a brighter, better shared future.  That future will include a far greater measure of economic democracy – increased abundance for all.  The best ways to achieve this brighter future has been, and will continue to be, the focus of this blogsite.

Please stay tuned….

Hijacking Reforms

Hijacking Reforms, by Jere L Hough

The Money-Powers (Wall Street & City of London financiers, bankers, and corporations) that are creating the new world economic order are winning their battle.  They may have already won it.  The last step is to create rebellion and revolutionary chaos in the USA, and destroy the Obama administration, and any vestiges of representative government we actually have left.

The militant and authoritarian extreme right has all of the money and media on its side of the ledger, and they are winning the war for the minds of the people.  Make no mistake.   This is not a new war.  It has been going on for thousands of years, and been ratcheted up in the last two or three hundred, and several times since then.  We are now in the final, or nearly final stage.  Soon representative governments will be a memory.  At least this will be so for governments that represent the people.  Huge corporations and the billionaires behind them will be well represented.

There will also be several tiers of supportive ranks of entrepreneurs, managers and high-ranking government and military personnel who will do well.  But the vast bulk of humanity will be either enslaved on some physical or economic level or allowed to starve, drown, or be otherwise thrown away or exterminated in some fashion, from wars, famines, diseases, and any number of other horrors.

This is obviously not a pretty picture, and I wish I didn’t have to describe it.  But it is all but inevitable now.  Why?  I could explain that in many ways, but perhaps the simplest is to say that the “Tea-Baggers” have “hijacked” the reform movements, and are winning false reforms.  That is to say that the radical fascist wealthy elite right has succeeded in not only capturing all the means of production and distribution in our culture, but the production and distribution of information and education as well.  At least they now have enough of it to sway and hypnotize the ignorant masses any way they choose.  The “Tea-baggers” are right wing frauds that have hijacked the reform movements begun by writers and activists like me and other money reformers.  The “Tea-Baggers” are the visible marching throngs of people who have been warned that we must really take back our government and our money.  They are only one group out of thousands that are acting like reform groups but are really funded and organized by those now in control, and who want to see fake and phony “reforms” that leave things in their control, or more so.  Beware these “wolves in sheep’s clothing”.  Jesus did not use that phrase lightly or without cause.  Those that simply want to tear down or destroy legitimate elected governments are among the worst of these pseudo-reformers.

And ignorance is also a huge key.  People have been kept so busy earning a living, caring for their families, or amusing and entertaining themselves that they have failed to inform themselves of the historical, philosophical, social, spiritual and economic principles that form the basis for lasting and successful civilizations whose citizens are capable of governing themselves responsibly.

So the US Constitution our forefathers though provided adequate checks and balances against fatal accumulations of power failed to provide for economic checks and balances.  Wealth and power were accumulated and aggregated into the hands of a few who eventually used corporations, cartels and syndicates to replace the power of the people with their own wealth and money powers.

This, of course, is the short version of the story.  Very long books have been and will be written to supply all the sordid details.

This writing has another point, and an important one.  It is that during the past several hundred years, bankers and financiers who own the interlocking networks of corporations that now rule our world have been waging a massive propaganda war against governments. This war has been especially vicious against democratic or republican representative governments. The reason for this is that only the “people-power” of a strong middle class can protect a society against the aristocratic tyranny of money and wealth.

It is essential that the reader grasp this point.  Vast inequalities in the distribution of wealth create an aristocracy far stronger than any that existed by royal bloodlines in the past.  Free markets cannot exist in the midst of such concentrations of economic power.  They have not existed for a long time now, except in the mythologies the power-brokers spin out to the people, via their corporate mainstream media.

Let me repeat it another way.  Political democracy cannot be sustained without some degree of economic democracy.  This does not mean everyone should make the same wage, or income.  That is a ludicrous idea used to attack attempts to bring economic fairness and justice into the marketplace of ideas.  Industry, education, initiative and creativity should always be rewarded.  These incentives should never be removed, just as concepts of private property should never be abandoned.  However, the economic playing field cannot be sustained when it is a skewed as it now is toward the unrestricted accumulation of wealth and power.

The only real power capable of standing up to the power of wealth is a government of, by and for the people.  That is precisely why the war has been waged to destroy such governments, and why that war is at a fever pitch right now.   Your government has almost, but not quite, been taken over by the money powers.  Whether that happens of not depends on you, and your choices – right now.

The task of the people now is to reclaim its government.   Reclaiming the sovereign right of governments to create and regulate money would be a great place to start.  That means absorbing the privately owned Federal Reserve System into the US Treasury while simultaneously overhauling that government agency.  The US Treasury and all banking operations should be totally transparent to the people and to government oversight and responsibility.  Money could even be created at state government or regional economic levels.

However, the purpose of this paper is primarily to warn people that they are being confused, divided, and conquered.  All predators operate this way.  However the predators we are dealing with are also parasites.  Parasites often end up killing their hosts, and that is happening here.  Wall Street financiers and bankers are not part of the “real economy” of our nation.  Only people who make or create things actually produce real wealth.  Bankers and financiers create “phantom wealth” or paper wealth that always sooner or later bubbles to far and then bursts.   You are being told that your government is your enemy, and all we need do is “take down” the government, and put another, better one in its place and viola!…everything will then be peachy-keen.

If you’ve bought into this lie you’ve been had by the propaganda machine, and need to separate yourself from the Matrix.  You are cheering on Senator Palpatine!  Is that your desire?  Star Wars the movie showed us how entire planets or even systems of planets can be deceived into falling into the dark side.  Yet that is what we are in danger of doing.

Let me repeat.  Government is the only agency that even remotely represents the people of the USA.  It is big money, unregulated power, and nearly unlimited accumulations of wealth that has co-opted your government, and corrupted much of it over to the dark side.

You are being convinced that President Obama has been co-opted, and must be defeated, but I suggest that is the propaganda the dark side wants you to believe in order to bring down all that stands in their way.  They are painting Hitler hair and mustaches on signs of the president.  They are smearing and lying about him and the government and I see these tactics working.  Don’t allow it to happen.  Criticize Obama or his administration all you want.  Honest criticism is the duty of a patriot.  Just make sure you don’t destroy our representative government along with the criticism.

The Money-powers are doing their best to shift the blame fro the economic collapse away from themselves, where it rightfully belongs, to the newly arrived Obama administration.  We wrote about this happening way before Obama was elected, or even got the party nomination.  We foresaw it years and decades ago.  I wrote of this happening when Reagan was bring his supply-side “Voodoo Economics” and de-regulation policies 30 years ago.  De-regulation in general and the repeal of Glass-Steagal in particular allowed the derivatives games and credit default swaps that causes the giant losses that brought down the financial system.  And the unwinding is just beginning.  There is no recovery in process, except that which is being bought on Wall Street with your taxpayer bail-out dollars.  Many more waves are coming over many more years, even under the most far-sighted management of our economy.

But real money reforms along with government reforms could work miracles in a few short years.  But heed my warnings.  Economists, bankers and their accountants and lawyers must not be allowed to direct these financial and government reforms.  That is the fatal mistake I see in our immediate future.  It is once again putting the foxes in charge of the henhouse.  The wolves must not be allowed to guard the sheep!

Review:

  • The money powers who are building the new economic world order have hijacked the legitimate calls for real financial and government reforms, and are calling themselves “Tea-Baggers” among other progressive-sounding or patriotic names.
  • Blame for the economic collapse lies squarely with Wall Street and the international cabal of bankers: the IMF, BIS and World Bank, along with all major central banks owned by private stockholders.
  • Those criminals who have perpetuated the largest crimes in history are desperately trying to shift the blame to “government” – all governments.
  • First they corrupt the government to profit from that corruption, then they pass the blame off on the government they bribed and corrupted.  We must find ways to separate the elections process from the money powers.
  • We must also find ways to reduce the obscene disparities in wealth and resources, and better compensate labor for its contributions to the aggregate wealth of the planet.
  • We must not allow rage and anger to destroy hundreds or even thousands of years of the progression of civilization.  We must find ways to extend representative government to more citizens without destroying what we have achieved.
  • We must keep our would-be masters and controllers from putting a “new face” on the evil that has been done over years, decades and centuries by the Moneychangers and financiers.  The scapegoat they are trying to use now is President Obama.
  • Follow the money.  Ask, who benefits?  Find out where the money is coming from and where it is going.  We must find ways to break up monopolies and trusts that are “too big to fail”.  Too big to fail is too big to exist.
  • We have think beyond old stereotypes for our economies if they are to work for everyone.  We may need to rethink the public/private divide and have communities assume ownership of natural monopolies.  We have to find new ways to make monopolies accountable to the people.
  • We must never underestimate the lure of unlimited and unregulated power.  That really is the lure of the “dark side” from which our forefathers wished to protect us.  They left the back door of economic and money power open to the usurpers and usurers.
  • The only safe repository of power is with the people in the aggregate, and in just and reasonable laws – legislation.

Personally I think it would be a good idea to call a constitutional convention every 40 or 50 years, or even more, if it could be done with just representation.  Just representation is the key to it all.  I may post this and then follow up with footnotes and references where needed.  70 years of living research went into this paper.  It is freely given for your best use.

A Response to AMI on the State Banking Issue

This is a response by Money Reformer , Jere L Hough to the AMI criticism of state banking reform proposals, primarily being advocated by Dr. Ellen H Brown, JD, author of “Web of Debt”,  currently the most popular book available on money reforms.  My responses to AMI’s assertions are [bracketed] and in BLUE.

Dear Friends,

As you know the states are in terrible financial condition, cutting back on necessary programs, laying off people and raising taxes. This has been the case for several years, and thanks to the banking crisis has reached horrific levels in some states. This is the time – an opportunity to push for real reform, such as the American Monetary Act. But instead, ill advised suggestions have recently been circulated on the internet that the states go into the banking business to solve or lessen this problem. The American Monetary Institute concludes that these suggestions, though they may be for well meaning purposes, are bad ideas for a lot of reasons as described below. People involved in real monetary reform understand that the private creation of money through what amounts to a fractional reserve accounting system is at the heart of the monetary problem which has plagued humanity and has now brought down the world economy. That vicious system by which money is created in our society must be reformed, not imitated. But there is no reform whatever in the proposal for states to enter the banking business.

[Response:  ***On the contrary, people involved with “real monetary reform” understand that what is an “ill-advised” idea is that ALL money reform efforts must all be focused in one direction by one group.  Our current system is a predatory one that is destroying our civilization, one loan (money-creation) at a time.  But nearly all agree on that point.  It is not exclusive the AMI, no matter how excellent your role has been in bringing this matter into the open.  We agree that this is the time to push for real reform. However the bankers are pushing back, and when it comes to money-muscle, we have no chance to win with the hand we are dealt.  What we need is promotion and education on all fronts, from the most local to the national and international.  And it is simply wrong to say there is “no reform whatsoever” in the state banking proposals.  It is a start, and a foot in the door.]

America: A Nation in Crisis

The USA is a nation in dire crisis, and I conservatively estimate that not one person in 1,000 (perhaps 100,000) is aware of the cause of our disease.  That means far less are aware of the proper cures.  Not knowing the cause, all the frantic efforts to “fix” the “system” only add layer upon layer of confusion to an already complex problem.  If this were a medical case, all the so-called “cures” would be killing the patient even faster than the underlying disease, which in itself is quite deadly enough.

In a word, our underlying problem is a fatal flaw in our controlling master legal document: the U.S. Constitution.  This flaw allows a “back door” for those who wish to exercise power over others to gain unchecked monopoly power though an “end run” around the constitutional safeguards commonly thought of as “checks and balances” in our system.

More specifically the “fatal flaw” is in the specifics of the mechanisms of money creation, control and regulation.  The loosely worded language allowed private, monopolistic banking powers to gain control over the US Treasury via it’s semi-governmental arm, The Federal Reserve System, established in 1913, and whose governing board is called “The Fed”.

It it far beyond the scope of this article to detail all the ways and means by which this was accomplished, but I can refer the reader to an exhaustive list of resources that leave no doubt of the truth of what is written so far above.  The references are all over this website, but will be listed again at the end of this article.

The process of replacing the authority of monarchs (kings, queens, emperors, dictators and other forms of tyrants) with more diverse and representative governments began far back in human pre-history, but for the purposes of our current Western Civilization of English-speaking citizens, historians tell us it goes back to the Magna-Carta.  In reality, rulers always had to fear rebellions if their tyranny went too far.  Power generally had to be shared with priests, temples, and religious leaders, and the heads of religious orders were often the temporal leaders themselves, or priest-kings and queens.
