Treachery In The Gulf
Looking at the big picture does put a new light on who is expendable.
White House chief of staff Rahm Emmanuel has said, “Never let a crisis
go to waste.” And Obama says we are addicted to oil. (This from a man
whose largest campaign contributor was BP) We would not have to be
using so much oil if so many inventors of alternative energy and free
energy had not been frightened off or killed.
What has happened in the Gulf of Mexico was not by accident. It was
most likely a design to support an agenda (like, “Agenda 21?”). What that agenda is we do not know exactly (Ah, perhaps “Agenda 21?”) but I will try to connect the dots. We may soon know the true extent of its nature by the “solutions” our government imposes on the people in the Gulf area.
Our government and BP are creating a famine by letting the blowout
continue in its present state. As mentioned above, the EPA objected to
the use of Corexit 9500 but Barack Obama did not step in to stop its
Every step during this disaster appears to be controlled by an
unprecedented amount of greed. Even greed does not figure because so
much natural wealth is being destroyed. What is really going on here?
Why do we have a media blackout on a catastrophe that will affect the
whole world? BP has hired the CIA-front company, Wackenhut, to patrol
the shoreline and prevent reporters, residents and visitors from
witnessing, describing and recording the damage. Private thugs are
forcing the public off public beaches.
Agenda 21 is a United Nations program but it was spearheaded and
directly sponsored by President George H.W. Bush at the Rio
Conference. President Bush promised the attendees that Americans would
one day pledge their allegiance to the United Nations as he made
Agenda 21 de facto US policy.
Once in office, one of the first things President Clinton did by
executive order was establish the Presidents Council for Sustainable
Development. All aspects of life were covered, though no one in
Congress complained or demanded hearings or any sort of debate.
Seventeen years later we see Agenda 21 being quietly enforced in
federal, state and local laws and regulations. Agenda 21 is the
framework for world government, imposed on us by our own town and city
councils, our own county supervisors. But it’s not called “Agenda 21″
by the planners. It’s called “Sustainable Development.”
“Sustainable Development” is a code word for world government. The
term “world government” is a euphemism for merciless dictatorship. The
excuses are the issues of environmental protection, preservation of
water and anti-pollution. For example, most of America will be
designated as “wildlands” and will be off-limits to Americans. After a
severe reduction of the population, survivors will be highly
concentrated into “Smart Growth” cities, stacked and packed into
high-rise housing projects.
By reducing the population to the numbers found around the Dark Ages
(five hundred million), government control is thought by the planners
to be manageable. To get down to five hundred million people from our
present population of six billion people will require a ninety-two
percent reduction. The reliable methods of population reduction we saw
in the last century Capitalist world wars and Communism only
achieved reductions in the hundreds of millions. Famine and genocide
in Africa were not sufficiently destructive. Agenda 21 calls for the
slaughter of five and a half billion people.
AIDS has affected its target populations here and in Africa but the
Bird Flu, Swine Flu, Ebola, Lyme disease, BSE (mad cow disease) have
not taken the numbers wanted. These are all, in my opinion,
government-created weapons. Government vaccine programs have not been
successful in creating disease and mortality in the numbers needed.
The right combination, however, of disease and famine could accomplish
The oil flow, blown inland by storms, will create water shortages by
poisoning fresh water sources. People who have been subsistence-living
will no longer have ways to live as they had been doing for
generations. Farmers will lose production due to chemical rain, thus
creating food shortages and famine across America and possibly Mexico
and South America. People living on seafood will have the most
difficulty and may die off quickly. Oil residue has already been seen
in seafood in restaurants and grocery stores. More economic
alternative food sources will be sought as the price of seafood
Genetically-altered food sources created by Monsanto will cause
disease and early death. Already the use of Monsanto “suicide seeds”
in America has adversely affected the honey bees. Our honey bee
population has been drastically reduced. Scientists have found that
the genetically-altered DNA has affected bee nervous systems, causing
a die off, which is now called “colony collapse disorder.” Without
honey bees, pollination ceases and this will be the end of a natural
way of life.
There will be migrations to urban areas as the coastal people lose
everything that made their lives worth living. The “Smart Growth”
collectivization of stacking and packing will begin. A single family
home with a yard will be something of the past and longed for.
Actually the packing of people into small areas will increase the
spread of diseases and violence. Two of the tenets of Deep Ecology
philosophy in the Wildlands Project are: The human population must be
reduced; western civilization must radically change its present
economic, technological and ideological structures. Independent
entrepreneurs will be things of the past.
Every day that BP and our government allow the oil to flow and the use
of Corexit, more of the earth will be poisoned. The land won’t be
worth a dollar and a quarter, never mind a hundred and a quarter.
The marine life that does survive will be contaminated. Recovery of
the areas affected is highly unlikely especially when looking at our
past record in the Exxon Valdez spill. The use of cancer-causing
Corexit has made this disaster many times more toxic than just oil
News reporter Kerry Kennedy says the people in the Gulf are
experiencing symptoms of nausea, headaches and burning eyes. Didn’t BP
learn anything from Exxon, or did they learn too much? No one is
encouraged to wear respirators and rubber gloves because BP is worried
about causing a state of hysteria, i.e., a state of awareness. The
doctors do not know exactly how to treat the patients coming in since
they don’t know what chemicals BP is using. Only band aids and aspirin
are provided to the workers in the Gulf by BP’s company doctors. All I
can say is that a majority of the Valdez workers were dead ten years
later. The White House has not responded appropriately so BP as a
corporation has taken control of the area without the consent of the
That’s exactly how the relationship between BP and Conservation
International was framed by ABC’s “Nightline” back in 2002.”
The main objectives are to end national sovereignty, abolition of
private property, the “restructuring” of the family unit, increasing
restrictions on mobility and individual opportunity. Barack Obama’s
way to do this is with something he calls “Cap and Trade.”
I must admit, for the longest time I did not know what “Cap and Trade”
meant. Nothing in those three words suggests anything to do with
ecology but “Cap and Trade” is an environmentally-based scam, an
artificial marketplace designed to reduce pollution by paying people
who reduce pollution with money from polluters. “Cap” refers to
limits, or caps, on emissions. So, we would have an emissions trading
system in which total emissions are limited, or capped. Permits would
be allocated or auctioned up to the set cap on emissions and a market
would allow polluting members who are emitting less than their quotas
to sell their excess permits to polluters who need to buy “credits” to
meet their caps. Which is all as totally phony as it sounds, and as
totally phony as “man-made global warming.” The globe is warmed by the
sun, or not, if it puts out less heat. Paying money or being paid has
nothing to do with pollution or “greenhouse gasses.”
What “Cap and Trade” does is to create more restrictions and controls on people.
This is the most devastating disaster that we have known. It will
affect millions of people in the Gulf States, the Eastern Coast and
everywhere the Gulf Stream goes. Agenda 21 is not only for America it
is international as a United Nations policy for the New World Order.
But while we still have some tattered shreds of our Bill of Rights
left, each of us who has an ounce of soul left needs to find out for
himself and herself the full extent of Agenda 21 and how it will
impact on your family’s life.
Agenda 21 has been creeping through each town and city council for 17
years. The first thing to do is to take a good look at what is
happening to the people who are living in the Gulf States and etch
into our brains what will happen to your family in the near future.
Our response to this must be to seize control of our local
institutions, our town and city councils and county boards of
supervisors and force the rejection of any and all programs,
regulations and policies that conform to the United Nations’ Agenda
for the 21st Century. Gulf Coast residents must demand non-toxic forms
of clean-up such as bioremediation, i.e., oil-eating microbes.
What? Me Worry?
Is it true that our world has suffered with so much unspeakable destruction, misery, and death because so many of us have had, and do have, perhaps, the mother of all negative and apathetic attitudes:
Why worry about something you can’t do anything about?
Is this attitude resulting in the forfeiture of our God-gifted and sovereign free-will?
Have too many of us lost so much free-will, through apathy and ignorance, we can only add to the wide consensus of negative free-will, or exercise no free-will at all?
Must we have some free-will left in order to use it in a positive fashion?
Unconditional love has the highest vibration, with hate, revenge, and fear on the bottom rungs. Enlightened spiritual beings naturally resonant with the higher vibrations.
So, there’s energy (of the material world) and there’s us (of the spiritual world) who create and interact with energy of the material world.
“Something can be done about anything with enough free-will, as the soul is senior and separate from energy. Souls create energy and interact with it. Souls can, however, become confused and think energy is senior to them, and even get lost in energy.”
And as a corollary, free-will not exercised will eventually become free-will lost, until it’s regained.
We could even make the Gulf of Mexico and its coasts clean again with our collective will overriding the negative will of those who have so poisoned our air, waters, and lands, and those in government who have allowed it.
To accomplish this many people in our world would have to wake up to the dark negative intentions of those who caused the greatest catastrophe in recorded history, but to also awaken to those of our federal government who allowed it.
Enlightenment must proceed the positive intention of free-will.
Evil and malevolence act secretly and deceptively. Before one can transform, exorcise, or reverse evil, one must know its nature and source.
To recapture one’s free-will, one must fully understand how they lost it though apathy, ignorance, and trickery to the overlords of darkness, and how that lost free-will was used for negative purposes.
We would have to see through the pretense of the bogus left/right paradigm, so promoted by the well paid, but disingenuous sophists of the corporate media.
Visualize and intend a clean Gulf and shores, with abundant and healthy marine and plant life; and the power and glory of life will once again return to us the people of Earth.

Truth And Consequences of the Oil Volcano
Most of us believe that oil is the remains of dead dinosaurs and vegetation that somehow went from being organic to the mineral state over thousands of years under pressure in their grave yards.
However, you have been wondering how many dinosaurs per second are coming out of the Gulf Gusher right now? How many were buried in what is now known to be such an immense oil field that 4000 rigs are doing their best to pump it out, make gasoline and make money?
What size herd of dinosaurs would it take to create that much oil? Or how big a forest? And how did they all get to be in the same place at the same time then get sucked down to a humongous cave at least 20,000 feet under the ocean floor?
Seems like that belief is due for a revamp don’t you think? Yes indeed, and you’re not the first to think so. Writing in National Review in 2004 Bruce Bartlett pointed out that ” in the 1950s, Russian and Ukrainian scientists developed a new theory about petroleum’s origins called the abiotic or abiogenic theory. According to this view, oil is fundamentally inorganic and has no relationship to dead plant or animal life. Rather, oil originates deep in the Earth’s crust from inorganic material that is part of the planet’s origin.”
That’s why oil wells are gushers. They’re the earth’s blood. Perhaps that’s how the earth has been handling our addicted oil-sucking society, putting up with our habit of behaving like blood thirsty mosquitoes, drilling into her body wherever there is a hint of what we need for a fix. She has put up with us so far, because she has been able to self-replenish her bloodstream. However, unlike addicts who inject their drug of choice into their bodies, we use our hypodermics (drilling rigs) to dig a well so we can hit a vein and suck out that black fluid that we have become so totally dependent on….we’re just a bunch of blood suckers. This time, we’ve not just hit a vein, it looks like we’ve hit an artery, and there’s nothing we can do to stop the bleeding.
Let’s Be Clear.
Let’s face the fact that this gusher is going to go on gushing every second of every day for months to come.
BP and the government are batting 100 per cent failure when it comes to stopping it.
This leaves us with a number of scenarios and outcomes which require unemotional attention. Unemotional, because they’re all as scarey as hell, and if we give in to fear in any way, we’re more screwed than if we’d just elected another President of Promises.
We’re in a theater. Some of us can smell smoke. The messenger has yelled “I smell smoke!” The manager has said “please stay seated, we have it under control.” Some of us have heard both, seen that there’s a chance to make it out the exit doors before the smoke turns to fire, and we’re sensible enough to drop our Coke and popcorn and get the heck out of there.
Scenario One = No End In Sight
The oil and the over-a-million gallons of dispersants that have been released, are not going to stop traveling any time soon (or ever).
Scenario Two = Blast Off And Tsunami
Eventually, as the cracking continues in the sea bed, without warning it could be weakened to such a degree that the gas and oil trapped in that Everest-sized cavity will explode with such force that there are no words to describe it. We could however say that the Hiroshima atomic bomb would be like a firecracker in comparison.
The result would be an eruption and an instant tsunami that would travel the 50 miles to shore – at hundreds of miles an hour – and wipe out everything in its path for who-knows-how-many miles inland.
Scenario Three = Storms – Hurricanes – Acid Rain
It is inevitable that storms and hurricanes will add to the devastation.
Wherever it makes landfall, you can kiss goodbye to any marshes and wetlands, for the oil will be deposited like a blanket of death, suffocating all living things. As for recovery? What recovery?
Hurricane or not, even a mild storm coming in from the Gulf is going to bring with it oily rain – and poisonous gases.
Scenario Four: Oily water = No Drinking Water
Desalination plants that provide city water are going to have to be shut down.
They rely on filters down to the nano level – but oil will clog them as soon as it finds them.
Likewise, nuclear power plants that cool themselves with sea water, are going to go off line as well.
Scenario Five = Killer Earthquake/s – New Madrid Fault
In this scenario, the gusher relieves enough pressure on surrounding rocks and tectonic plates that there is a sudden massive earthquake affecting the New Madrid Fault. This in turn collapses the cavity and stops the gusher. That’s the good news.
Unfortunately, lots of people are dead or injured.
Scenario Six = Mass Evacuations
Under any of the above scenarios, mass evacuations could quite conceivably be mandated by the government.
Already, people are leaving some of the Gulf states voluntarily. Not happily by any means, for it requires leaving behind property that may never sell, and family and friends who do not share the same forward-looking comprehension of what’s inevitably going to happen.
Inevitably, oily rain will ruin as much on land as it has in the ocean.
Solution – Two Revolutions
As upsetting as it might be, facing these several previously unthinkable scenarios arising from the BP Disaster leads to some life-changing ideas, and on to thoughts of the future.
That’s where the first revolution has to start. A revolution in personal thinking about our responsibility to our planet – which in turn should lead us to demand the demise of “Big Oil.”
The second revolution?
This is nothing more than supposition. But, suppose those folks in the Gulf states and up the East Coast whose lives are going to hell right now, start to question how it all happened.
Their lives went to hell because politicians took money from corporations and in turn turned a blind eye and a deaf ear to the way those corporations defied the law.
When these now unemployed people get to the point that they cannot sell their homes while the banks continue to insist on mortgage payments (“or you’re outa here”), while the IRS insists they pay taxes on their compensation monies, are they going to quit paying taxes – and start a revolution against the banks? Quite likely. Will this lead to a martial law backlash?
Any way we look at any of these potentials, for each case study the options for those most immediately affected appear to be extraordinarily similar.
One option is to get over the shock, get emotions under control, decide to get out of harm’s way, make a plan, and do it.
The other is to stay put, stick it out and take the consequences.
Have the Seventh Sign of Hopi Prophecy Come True?
Hopi prophecy predates the coming of white people. In fact, the coming of Pahana (whites) is part of the prophecy, the beginning of Koyanniqatsi, meaning “crazy life,” “life in turmoil,” or “life out of balance.” Koyanniqatsi is a state of life that calls for another way of living. That is what we all must do to survive.
The following are the 9ine Hopi Prophecies. Have the 7th one just been fulfilled, with the Oil spill in the Gulf? The 8th could refer to “counter cultural’s” walking out on regular society and “civilization” and the 9th could be referring to Betelgeuse going supernova in 2012 (Kachina).
“This is the First Sign: We are told of the coming of the white-skinned men, like Pahana, but not living like Pahana men who took the land that was not theirs. And men who struck their enemies with thunder.
“This is the Second Sign: Our lands will see the coming of spinning wheels filled with voices. In his youth, my father saw this prophecy come true with his eyes — the white men bringing their families in wagons across the prairies.”
“This is the Third Sign: A strange beast like a buffalo but with great long horns, will overrun the land in large numbers. These White Feather saw with his eyes — the coming of the white men’s cattle.”
“This is the Fourth Sign: The land will be crossed by snakes of iron.”
“This is the Fifth Sign: The land shall be criss-crossed by a giant spider’s web.”
“This is the Sixth sign: The land shall be criss-crossed with rivers of stone that make pictures in the sun.”
“This is the Seventh Sign: You will hear of the sea turning black, and many living things dying because of it.”
“This is the Eight Sign: You will see many youth, who wear their hair long like my people, come and join the tribal nations, to learn their ways and wisdom.
“And this is the Ninth and Last Sign: You will hear of a dwelling-place in the heavens, above the earth, that shall fall with a great crash. It will appear as a blue star. Very soon after this, the ceremonies of my people will cease.
This “Truth Movement” has been happening for quite awhile now. Those of us who have been involved in it for a significant amount of time have seen the public awareness of factual information which has been commonly referred to as “conspiracy theory” rise exponentially. Most people you meet are aware of the questions surrounding the attacks of 9/11. Large numbers of people understand the devious nature of the banking system. Significant segments of the world population are finally becoming informed about, and in turn adopting a righteous hostility toward, the one world government system that is being rolled out by the mainstream media as the only solution to the engineered global economic collapse and the totally fabricated “climate crisis.”
The once sovereign nations of the planet are very rapidly being brought under the umbrella of a system of “global governance.” This is very public nowadays, with Obama figure-heading the recent G-20 summit where it was declared that we need a “New World Order” where a “world authority” will regulate the “globalized economy.” For those who don’t know, the economic system of any country is the basis for its government; so this was a hardly veiled declaration by all of the world’s power entities that they are now taking steps to solidify a system of global government. The plan is to set up the United Nations as a global authority under which the individual nations are simply “states,” the laws and practices of which are dictated to by the top.
Can We Save Our Society?
The popular rhetoric spewed by all of the so-called leaders of the Truth Movement focuses on targeting the people in power, claiming that if we are able to somehow remove them from power, we have solved our problem. What I am arguing is that the people in power are interchangeable, and simply mechanisms by which a very old process is reaching the stage of fruition. We are rapidly approaching the end of a very long cycle.
These official talkers, on the Patriot stations and websites, typically talk about Jews and Masons and whatever else, and how they have hijacked our system, and if we can simply take it back though some unexplainable means, and transfer power over to Ron Paul or whoever else, we can use new technologies for good and establish a paradise on earth. Let me state clearly that I am not claiming these people in power are not responsible for their actions. I am simply saying that if they were not there, others would be. They are playing a role.
Take a brief look at the history of “civilization” and what you see is an virtually unbroken line of slavery and oppression. There are almost no examples of governments that were not oppressive. From Sumer, Egypt, and Rome, to European feudalism, and up through modern day capitalist and communist systems, there is always a small elite ruling over a mass of peasants. As everything about our society changes, this remains a constant. This is the simple fact of the matter. What we are seeing now with the encroachment of this scientific dictatorship is merely the logical conclusion to the process of what is commonly referred to as “progress.”
Civilization is based upon the centralization of a power structure over vast numbers of people. Centralized power necessitates centralized leadership and control. Whenever you have this, you are going to have a situation where very intelligent people who desire to be in control are able to attain these positions. These people are psychopaths. That is the personality type that seeks power over other people. Normal people don’t have this desire, and will generally even feel uncomfortable with the idea of holding such positions. Again, history bares witness. As technology advances, power becomes further centralized, with the ruling forces able to exercise control over finer and finer details of our lives.
And what if we did put Ron Paul (or some like minded populist) in charge? Never mind the fact that this is impossible, given the state of the popular media, which ultimately makes people’s choices for them. Let’s say it happened, and by some inexplicable miracle, the real powers behind the throne did not have him assassinated. For starters, in this globalized world of free trade, where slaves in China can make everything for cheaper than people in the first world where people are accustomed to a semi-decent standard of living, his free market capitalism would be utterly useless in stemming the collapsing markets of the United States, as it is no longer viable for corporations to produce anything here. As a matter of fact, given globalization, and the fact that technology has made the world a very small place, independent nations are themselves no longer viable. It just doesn’t make sense. The people talking about Ron Paul saving us are trying to bring back a system of doing things that simply cannot work in this new age of ours.
The pertinent question here is: how exactly has technological society improved the quality of our lives? Even the most ardent supporters of “progress” have a very difficult time answering this question. People will eventually give improvements in health care as a definite benefit of the scientific age, as this is really the only one which even appears to make sense. However, other than the infant mortality rate (which is something I plan to examine in detail in a future essay), I think it is hard to argue our health has improved at all, even with the abundance of futuristic medical technology. Virtually everything in our environment contains toxic chemicals; our bodies are infested with them. We are inundated with electromagnetic radiation. The food we eat is for the most part poisonous. Our water is filled with drugs, fluoride and poison. People lived better and often longer before any of this technology existed (the statistics for the average lifespans of pre-civilized people factor in infant deaths; these folks often lived to be 100).
When we then examine the positives of tribal living, it becomes clear that as far as quality of life, there really is no comparison at all. For instance, cutting out “work”, which I find to be an utterly horrid concept, would make my life exponentially better. To this people will often respond with claims that tribal people did work, and some will even claim they worked harder than us, which is a nonsensical statement. The “work” that pre-civilized people did was solely related to providing for basic survival needs; no one was making a profit off of them. Picture a tribe who’s main source of food is fish. Their “work” then consists of: fishing. That is it. The women would be responsible for making whatever clothing was needed, which in warmer climates, where people generally lived, was minimal, and sometimes people simply went nude (the profound psychological and spiritual implications of nudity among tribal people will be examined in depth in the near future). Possibly people would stitch together tents, or build huts of some type (if they didn’t live in caves), but this was not something that had to be done very often. I would imagine all of these activities were rather enjoyable, and as such they can be in no way compared to the wage slavery of modern man. Another example to cite is the buffalo hunters of the American planes. The buffalo were an abundant food source, and very easy to kill. These people lived bountiful lives.
Cutting out work, one has time to spend with ones family and tribesmen, having fun, telling stories, making music, creating art, dancing, making love to the wife, joking with the old folks and generally living it up. People lived at peace with God and nature, and where we, in the age of discontent, have holes in our hearts and a yearning for something real, they had peace. Their lives were the diametric opposite of our own.
What I am offering is a different way to look at our own existence, a new paradigm in which everything makes sense. What is happening is happening because we have abandoned our own human nature and gotten lost in an artificial world that is incapable of providing us with the meaning our souls long for. Civilizations have come and gone for millions of years. The ancients have told the tale of global empires which risen and fallen, and this too will pass. As the world burns around us, we stand at the edge of something marvelous.
A Biblical Catastrophe that will affect us all. The ‘Spill” (uncontrolled gush) will devastate America?
Oh, yes, but that’s the idea……
A Biblical Catastrophe that will affect us all. The ‘Spill” (uncontrolled gusher) will devastate America?
Beware cover stories of ‘incompetence’, as with ‘incompetent bureaucrats’, because they are so often a veil for cold calculation. The Gulf of Mexico disaster didn’t just happen, it was made to happen.
But what’s the deal? How does an oil-poisoned ocean and devastated coastal communities (and potentially others far inland and around the world) benefit the Illuminati cabal and their agenda for total global control?
The major target of this engineered horror is America and its economy – as I have been saying for years they are seeking to destroy the United States militarily and financially to bring this ‘superpower’ to its knees so it can be absorbed into a world government dictatorship via a North American Union.
Well, yes, it is crazy, these people are crazy, but there is method in their madness…..”Killing the Sea to ‘Save’ the Sea.” (see Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged” Blueprint for a “New World Order”)

“All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order.” ~ David Rockefeller
Recent reports have claimed to quote the opinions of scientists who are too fearful to be publicly named because of the consequences for their lives and careers.
They estimate the release of oil from under the Earth’s crust at between 80,000 and 100,000 barrels a day. That is 4.2 million American gallons or 15.9 million litres a day potentially pouring into the Gulf.
The scientists were quoted as saying that the ‘sandblasting’ of the oil, toxic gases, rocks and sand will be continually making a bigger hole for the oil and gas to escape. In other words, the situation is getting worse not better and it is already a catastrophe of immense proportions for those immediately affected – a number growing rapidly by the day.
The scientists predicted that the drill hole will expand beneath the wellhead and so weaken the area on which the wellhead stands until it is pushed off the hole to allow the oil to flow with no restrictions at all.
Should that happen the consequences are unthinkable.
The scientists said that billions of barrels of oil will be released before the pressure in the enormous cavity five miles below the seabed calms and finds balance and then water would pour into the cavity to replace the oil.
They said that the temperature at that depth, some 400 degrees, will turn the water to steam creating a pressure that will lift the ocean floor. They estimate that this will create a tsunami of between 20 to 80 feet, or even higher, that will bring the poisoned ocean ashore to leave great tracts of land uninhabitable and without life.
American investigative journalist, Wayne Madsen, writes that satellite imagery withheld by the Obama administration shows that ‘under the gaping chasm spewing oil at an ever-alarming rate is a cavern estimated to be around the size of Mount Everest’. This information, he says, has been given an almost national security-level classification to keep it from the public.
But the scale and potential of what we are seeing goes way beyond even the Gulf. The scientists I mentioned earlier say that the oil has now reached the Gulf Stream, with a current at least four times stronger than in the Gulf of Mexico itself, and this could help to direct the oil all over the world in the next 18 months.
The toxic oil and gas are being added to by the lethal ‘dispersant’ used by BP to (theoretically, for public consumption only), ‘disperse the oil’. They are using Corexit 9500 and Corexit 9527A which are so toxic they have been banned in Europe, although Europe is likely to get them anyway via the Gulf Stream.
Corexit is manufactured by a corporation called Nalco (based in Illinois), once part of Exxon Mobil, and the current leadership includes executives from Exxon and BP. The European Union Times said of Corexit:
‘A dire report prepared for President Medvedev by Russia’s Ministry of Natural Resources is warning today that the British Petroleum (BP) oil and gas leak in the Gulf of Mexico is about to become the worst environmental catastrophe in all of human history threatening the entire eastern half of the North American continent with “total destruction” …
… Russian scientists are basing their apocalyptic destruction assessment due to BP’s use of millions of gallons of the chemical dispersal agent known as Corexit 9500 which is being pumped directly into the leak of this wellhead over a mile under the Gulf of Mexico waters and designed, this report says, to keep hidden from the American public the full, and tragic, extent of this leak that is now estimated to be over 2.9 million gallons a day.’
BP has told the US government that 400,000 gallons of this environmental destroyer has been sprayed into the sea with another 805,000 gallons already ordered.
You might think at first hearing that it is blatantly crazy to use Corexit when there are some 12 other less toxic and more effective dispersants approved by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Two of those on the EPA list ‘were found to be 100 percent effective on Gulf of Mexico crude, while the two Corexit products rated 56 percent and 63 percent effective.’
Corexit also causes the oil to drop below the surface so giving a false impression of how much oil is in the water.
Environmental engineer Joe Taylor has publicly warned BP to stop using Corexit immediately or everything in the sea is going to die.
He says the sulfur and sulfuric acid based dispersant makes the oil spewing into the gulf sink, where its impossible to clean up–and where it depletes oxygen levels under the water, killing plankton and everything above plankton in the food chain. “Corexit is toxic, petroleum is toxic, and its depleting the oxygen levels,” he says.
It is worth watching this short report (BP Must Stop Using Toxic Dispersant Now, Says Environmental Engineer) on his findings before we move on, because we are getting to the prime question – why is BP doing everything it can to cause maximum destruction.
Why would BP be knowingly causing as much environmental devastation as possible? The answer to this question is the same as the answer to these:
Why was the booming operation supposed to protect the beaches from the oil so pathetic and ‘inept’, as exposed here by an expert … BP Fails Booming School 101?
Why is the BP ‘clean-up’ operation so disorganised, unmotivated and basically non-existent that BP employees are working for little more than two hours a day on beach cleaning.
The answer to all those questions and so many more is this: we are looking at an environmental 9/11 that was made to happen and those behind this carnage want it to be as extreme as possible to get maximum impact in terms of their goals of control and chaos.
Yes, BP is a 100% Illuminati company now facing fantastic costs and public condemnation, but all these corporations are just vehicles and thus expendable as necessary to the core agenda.
A vacuous, ludicrous and mendacious man called Bob Dudley, the BP managing director, said from the comfort and distance of Washington DC that ‘for BP, our intent is to restore the Gulf the way it was before it happened.’
Excuse me a moment….
Meanwhile, back here on Planet Earth, life as they have known it is already over for the coastal communities of the Gulf region with the tourist and fishing industries devastated or destroyed. People are now being forced to earn a livelihood working on ‘clean-ups’ for the same BP that has wreaked this havoc on their lives and families.
What’s more, they are told by this merciless corporation that they must work amid shocking levels of toxicity without respirators because they don’t want to ‘alarm the public’ by seeing such pictures – the same reason why BP has basically introduced its own martial law in the region to stop the full and horrific extent of the disaster and its global potential coming to light.
The health consequences for those ‘clean-up’ workers already exposed to this deeply toxic environment without protection will already be horrific, as we shall see. But BP couldn’t give a shit – just as the US government and the New York authorities couldn’t give a shit about the rescue workers on the toxic World Trade Center site after 9/11.
Already, even the (pathetic) mainstream media has reported that 70 people in Louisiana have been admitted to hospital with symptoms of toxin poisoning. Many beaches have been closed because of toxins in the air and water and people are reporting breathing problems and skin rashes and lesions.
One report said that crops as far north as North Carolina have been damaged by toxic rain, while oil has been falling in the rain near the Louisiana coast.
This is only the beginning, too, as the oil continues to gush in ever-greater amounts to be met by the lethal Corexit in ever-greater amounts, and that whole deadly toxic cocktail is going to fall as rain on communities far from the coast.
Add to that the hurricanes, tidal surges and other weather phenomena and you can understand why those nameless scientists are writing off land up to 200 miles from the shore as becoming too toxic to support life, let alone a human society.
Two other effects of so much oil in the Gulf of Mexico could be to heat up the sea, so causing more hurricanes and super-storms, and making the process of producing rain from seawater less efficient, so affecting rainfall on the land.
BP has said that massive quantities of methane are leaking with the oil, along with large mounts of lethally toxic hydrogen sulfide, benzene and methylene chloride. This has the potential to trigger mass evacuations.
John Kessler, oceanography professor at Texas A&M University, discovered on a ten-day research expedition what he called ‘astonishingly high’ levels of methane within five miles of the stricken rig – ‘an incredible amount’ – and maybe as much as a million times greater than normal.
It is very sobering to look again at the towns and cities of the Gulf coast given a report by investigative journalist, Wayne Madson, that quotes ‘sources’ inside the US government, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the US Army Corps of Engineers as predicting a ‘dead zone’ within 200 miles of the rig caused by a combination of methane and toxic rain containing Corexit.
‘Plans are being put in place for the mandatory evacuation of New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Mandeville, Hammond, Houma, Belle Chase, Chalmette, Slidell, Biloxi, Gulfport, Pensacola, Hattiesburg, Mobile, Bay Minette, Fort Walton Beach, Panama City, Crestview, and Pascagoula.’
Imagine evacuating that many people and maybe more of the tens of millions of people who live on or within 200 miles of the Gulf coast, but then that would be just the scale of disaster and compulsion that would allow FEMA, a major asset of the Control System as my books and others have detailed, to impose its long-planned martial law on enormous numbers of people.
FEMA and the military have been preparing for this for years with exercises for just such a situation involving oil pollution, but all records of this were expunged from FEMA-related websites in the weeks before the Deepwater Horizon explosion.
Anything that affects America on such a scale would have a knock-on effect economically across the world – another bonus for the cabal which is seeking to create maximum chaos on every front to instigate the global problems to which it will offer its global solutions – a world political and military dictatorship.
Watch China like a hawk, or rather like a vulture, as it begins to circle America waiting to seize its carcass as soon as it thinks it is sufficiently wounded.
While I was writing this article, I remembered that one of the ‘messages’ I was given through the first psychic I saw in 1990 said this:
‘Taking oil from the seabed is destabilising the inner earth. The centre of the earth will move and the poles will change. The sea spirits will rise and stop men taking oil. The sea will reclaim the land and humans will see that they cannot do these terrible things. They cannot abuse the elements. They have to be treated with respect.’
We are certainly going to see increasing signs of geological instability in these ‘end times’ as one era ends and another begins. It is a time to be strong and strap in for a bumpy ride for a while.
There are so many levels to all this and so much more to know about what is happening. On one level the Illuminati families pursue their agenda, as with this oil disaster, but on another there are other events unfolding and what seems to be happening on one level looks very different when viewed from another.
It is also interesting that many prophecies in different cultures include a theme of the sea turning to blood which, to be fair, is what the polluted sea of Gulf now looks like.
The Biblical Book of Revelation (8:8 and 8:9) says:
‘And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;
And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.’
I was talking a couple of days ago to the great Zulu high shaman, Credo Mutwa, and he said that the sea turning to blood during the run up to the ‘end of the world’ is a theme in his culture, too. He also said that South African sangomas (shamans) are having visions and dreams about the rain falling as blood and ‘large lumps of blood rolling in the shore’.
The prophecies of the Hopi people in Arizona speak of the sea turning black as a sign that the old age is ending and new one about to begin. It says:
‘This is the seventh sign, You will hear of the sea turning black, and many living things dying because of it.’
This is the theme of so many ‘end of the world’ legends and prophecies – a series of events that see the ‘old world’, cycle, yuga or epoch disappearing to be replaced by a new one.
In the Book of Revelation these events are symbolized as ‘seals’ while the Hopi prophecies call them ‘signs’. Zulu legends and prophecies have the same themes and they are remarkably consistent with each other in many ways.
I stress that the ‘end of the world’ doesn’t mean the end of life, only the end of an epoch, an age, and that is what we are experiencing now with many serious challenges to come. But if the old ‘world’ does not break down, the new cannot emerge because the old, through its Control System, will seek to stifle and suffocate that change.
So it has to go and it is in the process of doing so. How current events in the Gulf of Mexico fit into that we can only wait and see, but I am sure we are witnessing something of potentially enormous significance on so many levels.
There is a new and unique development in human history that is taking place around the world; it is unprecedented in reach and volume, and it is also the greatest threat to all global power structures: the ‘global political awakening.’ The term was coined by Zbigniew Brzezinski, and refers to the fact that, as Brzezinski wrote: “For the first time in history almost all of humanity is politically activated, politically conscious and politically interactive. Global activism is generating a surge in the quest for cultural respect and economic opportunity in a world scarred by memories of colonial or imperial domination.”
Brzezinski even wrote that, “Let it be said right away that supranationality should not be confused with world government. Even if it were desirable, mankind is not remotely ready for world government, and the American people certainly do not want it.” Instead, Brzezinski argues, America must be central in constructing a system of global governance, “in shaping a world that is defined less by the fiction of state sovereignty and more by the reality of expanding and politically regulated interdependence.” In other words, not ‘global government’ but ‘global governance’, which is simply a rhetorical ploy, as ‘global governance’ – no matter how overlapping, sporadic and desultory it presents itself, is in fact a key step and necessary transition in the moves toward an actual global government.
Thus, the rhetoric and reality of a “global war on terror” in actuality further inflames the ‘global political awakening’ as opposed to challenging and addressing the issue. In 2007, Brzezinski told the US Senate that the “War on terror” was a “mythical historical narrative,” or in other words, a complete fiction.
Elites have always sought to control populations and individuals for their own power desires. It does not matter whether the political system is that of fascism, communism, socialism or democracy: elites seek power and control and are inherent in each system of governance.
Further, writes Brzezinski, “Persisting social crisis, the emergence of a charismatic personality, and the exploitation of mass media to obtain public confidence would be the steppingstones in the piecemeal transformation of the United States into a highly controlled society.” Elaborating, Brzezinski writes, “The traditionally democratic American society could, because of its fascination with technical efficiency, become an extremely controlled society, and its humane and individualistic qualities would thereby be lost.”
Summed up, the Trilateral Commission Task Force Report essentially explained that the “Crisis of Democracy” is that there is too much of it, and so the ‘solution’ to the ‘crisis’ is to have less democracy and more ‘authority.’
The New World Order
Following the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, American ideologues – politicians and academics – began discussing the idea of the emergence of a “new world order” in which power in the world is centralized with one power – the United States, and laid the basis for an expansion of elitist ideology pertaining to the notion of ‘globalization’: that power and power structures should be globalizaed. In short, the ‘new world order’ was to be a global order of global governance. In the short term, it was to be led by the United States, which must be the central and primary actor in constructing a new world order, and ultimately a global government.
In short, the “house of world order” will have to be built from the bottom up rather than from the top down. It will look like a great “booming, buzzing confusion,” to use William James’ famous description of reality, but an end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece, will accomplish much more than the old-fashioned frontal assault.
International governance tends to be effective, only when it is anti-democratic.”
This ‘global political awakening’, of which Brzezinski has explained as being one of the primary global geopolitical challenges of today, has largely, up until recent times, been exemplified in the ‘Global South’, or the ‘Third World’ developing nations of the Middle East, Central and Southeast Asia, Africa and Latin America. Developments in recent decades and years in Venezuela, Bolivia, and Iran exemplify the nationalist-orientation of much of this awakening, taking place in a world increasingly and incrementally moving towards global governance and global institutions.
Thus, the majority of the world’s people live in absolute poverty and social dislocation. This is directly the result of the globalized world order that has been and is being constructed. Now, as that same infrastructure is being further institutionalized and built upon, people are being thrown into the ‘awakening’ like never before. Their very poverty pushes them into an awakening. There is a seemingly lost notion of judging a society by how it treats it weakest members: the poor. Poverty forces one to look at the world differently, as they see the harsh restraints that society has imposed upon the human spirit. Life simply cannot be about the struggle to make payments week-to-week; to afford water, shelter, and food; to live according to the dictates of money and power.
Look to history, and you see that from some of the most oppressive societies can come the greatest of humanity. Russia, a nation which has never in its history experienced true political freedom for the individual, has managed to produce some of the greatest music, art, expression and literature as a vibrant outcry of humanity from a society so overcome with the need to control it. It the fact that such triumphs of human spirit can come from such tyrannies over human nature is a sobering display of the great mystery of human beings. Why waste humanity by subjecting it to poverty? Think of the difference that could be made if all of humanity was allowed to flourish individually and collectively; think of all the ideas, art, expression, intellect and beauty we aren’t getting from those who have no voice.
Until we address this fundamental issue, any notion of humanity as being ‘civilized’ is but a cynical joke. If it’s human civilization, we haven’t quite figured it out yet. We don’t yet have a proper definition of ‘civilized’, and we need to make it ‘humane.’
The West and the Awakening
The middle classes of the western world are undergoing a dramatic transition, most especially in the wake of the global economic crisis. In the previous decades, the middle class has become a debt-based class, whose consumption was based almost entirely on debt, and so their ability to consume and be the social bedrock of the capitalist system is but a mere fiction. Never in history has the middle class, and most especially the youth who are graduating college into the hardest job market in decades, been in such peril..
‘Fiscal austerity’ is a vague term that in actuality refers to cutting social spending and increasing taxes. The effect this has is that the public sector is devastated, as all assets are privatized, public workers are fired en masse, unemployment becomes rampant, health and education disappear, taxes rise dramatically, and currencies are devalued to make all assets cheaper for international corporations and banks to buy up, while internally causing inflation – dramatically increasing the costs of fuel and food. In short, ‘fiscal austerity’ implies ‘social destruction’ as the social foundations of nations and peoples are pulled out from under them. States then become despotic and oppress the people, who naturally revolt against ‘austerity’: the sterilization of society.
As the debt crisis we see unfolding today sweeps the world, the IMF is again stepping in to impose ‘fiscal austerity’ on nations in return for short-term loans for countries to pay off the interest on their exorbitant debts, themselves owed mostly to major European and American banks. Western nations have agreed to impose fiscal austerity, which will in fact only inflame the crisis, deepen the depression and destroy the social foundations of the west so that we are left only with the authoritarian apparatus of state power – the police, military, homeland ‘security’ apparatus – which is employed against people to protect the status quo powers.
As austerity hits the west, the middle class will vanish in obscurity, as they will be absorbed into the lower, labour-oriented working class. The youth of the western middle class, comprising the majority of the educated youth, will be exposed to a ‘poverty of expectations’ in which they grew up in a world in which they were promised everything, and from whom everything was so quickly taken. The inevitability of protests, riots and possible rebellion is as sure as the sun rises.
In the United States, the emergence of the Tea Party movement is representative of – in large part – a growing dissatisfaction with the government and the economy. Naturally, like any group, it has its radical and fringe elements, which tend to draw the majority of media attention in an effort to shape public opinion, but the core and the driving force of the movement is the notion of popular dissatisfaction with government. Whatever one thinks of the legitimacy of such protestations, people are not pleased, and people are taking to the streets. And so it begins.
Noam Chomsky explained, “For over 30 years, real incomes have stagnated or declined. This is in large part the consequence of the decision in the 1970s to financialize the economy.” This constitutes ‘class resentment’, as “The bankers, who are primarily responsible for the crisis, are now reveling in record bonuses while official unemployment is around 10 percent and unemployment in the manufacturing sector is at Depression-era levels.” This same financial industry is directly linked to Obama, who is supporting their interests, and people are noticing.
In an interview in March 2010, Naomi Wolf explained that her ideas (America heading toward “Fascism”) are even more relevant under Obama than Bush. She explained, “Bush legalized torture, but Obama is legalizing impunity. He promised to roll stuff back, but he is institutionalizing these things forever. It is terrifying and the left doesn’t seem to recognize it.” She explained how the left, while active under Bush, has been tranquilized under Obama, and that there is a potential for true intellectuals and for people more generally and more importantly, to reach out to each other across the spectrum. She explained:
“I was invited by the Ron Paul supporters to their rally in Washington last summer and I loved it. I met a lot of people I respected, a lot of “ordinary” people, as in not privileged. They were stepping up to the plate, when my own liberal privileged fellow demographic habituates were lying around whining. It was a wake-up call to the libertarians that there’s a progressive who cares so much about the same issues. Their views of liberals are just as distorted as ours are of conservatives.”
In time, others will join with the Tea Party movement and new activist groups, the anti-war movement will have to revitalize itself or die away; since Obama became President their influence, their voice, and their dignity has all but vanished. They have become a pacified voice, and their silence is complicity; thus, the anti-war movement must reignite and reinvigorate or it will decompose. The ‘Left’s’ distrust of corporations must merge with the ‘Right’s’ distrust of government to create a trust in ‘people.’ Soon students will be joining protests, and the issues of the Tea Party movement and others like it can become more refined and informed.
hen the middle classes of the west are plunged into poverty, it will force an awakening, for when people have nothing, they have nothing left to lose. The only way that the entrenched powers of the world have been able to expand their power and maintain their power is with the ignorant consent of the populations of the west. Issues of war, empire, economics and terror shape public opinion and allow social planners to redirect and reconstitute society. The people of the west have allowed themselves to be ruled as such and have allowed our rulers to be so ruthless in our names. People have been blinded by consumerism and entertainment. Images of celebrities, professional sports, Hollywood, iPods, blackberrys, and PCs consume the minds of people, and especially the youth of the west today. It has been the illusion of being the consuming class that has allowed our societies to be run so recklessly. So long as we have our TVs and PCs we won’t pay attention to anything else!
When the ability to consume is removed, the people will enter into a period of a great awakening. This will give rise to major new political movements, many progressive but some regressive, some fringe and radical, some violent and tyrannical, but altogether new and ultimately global. This is when the people of the west will come to realize the plight of the rest. This will be the era in which people begin to understand the realization that there is great truth in Dr. Martin Luther King’s words, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” Thus, the struggle of Africans will become the struggle of Americans: it must be freedom for all or freedom for none.
This is the major geopolitical reality and the pre-eminent global threat to world power structures. No development in all of human history presents such a monumental challenge to the status quo. As global power structures have never resembled such a monumental threat to mankind, mankind has never posed such an immense threat to institutionalized power. For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Even if elites think that they truly do run the world, human nature has a way of exposing the flaws in that assumption. Human nature is not meant to be ‘controlled,’ but rather is meant to be nurtured.
Brzezinski states: “I don’t deny that terrorism is a reality, a threat to us, an ugly menace and a vicious manifestation. But it is a symptom of something larger and more complicated, related to the global turmoil that takes place in many parts of the world and manifests itself in different ways.
That turmoil is the product of the political awakening, the fact that today vast masses of the world are not politically neutered, as they have been throughout history. They have political consciousness. It may be undefined, it may point in different directions, it may be primitive, it may be intolerant, it may be hateful, but it is a form of political activism.
The other major change in international affairs is that for the first time, in all of human history, mankind has been politically awakened. That is a total new reality – total new reality. It has not been so for most of human history until the last one hundred years. And in the course of the last one hundred years, the whole world has become politically awakened. And no matter where you go, politics is a matter of social engagement, and most people know what is generally going on –generally going on – in the world, and are consciously aware of global inequities, inequalities, lack of respect, exploitation. Mankind is now politically awakened and stirring.”
The solution to the ‘global political awakening’, in the view from the top (the “Power Elites”), is to continue to create the apparatus of an oppressive global government.
So, the Technological Revolution has led to a diametrically opposed, antagonistic, and conflicting geopolitical reality: never before has humanity been so awakened to issues of power, exploitation, imperialism and domination; and simultaneously, never before have elites been so transnational and global in orientation, and with the ability to impose such a truly global system of scientific despotism and political oppression. These are the two major geopolitical realities of the world today. Reflect on that. Never in all of human history has mankind been so capable of achieving a true global political psycho-social awakening; nor has humanity ever been in such danger of being subjected to a truly global scientific totalitarianism, potentially more oppressive than any system known before, and without a doubt more technologically capable of imposing a permanent despotism upon humanity. So we are filled with hope, but driven by urgency. In all of human history, never has the potential nor the repercussions of human actions and ideas ever been so monumental.
Suddenly, global elites are faced with the reality of seeking to dominate populations that are increasingly becoming self-aware and are developing a global consciousness. Thus, a population being subjected to domination in Africa has the ability to become aware of a population being subjected to the same forms of domination in the Middle East, South America or Asia; and they can recognize that they are all being dominated by the same global power structures. That is a key point: not only is the awakening global in its reach, but in its nature; it creates within the individual, an awareness of the global condition. So it is a ‘global awakening’ both in the external environment, and in the internal psychology.
This new reality in the world, coupled with the fact that the world’s population has never been so vast, presents a challenge to elites seeking to dominate people all over the world who are aware and awakened to the realities of social inequality, war, poverty, exploitation, disrespect, imperialism and domination. This directly implies that these populations will be significantly more challenging to control: economically, politically, socially, psychologically and spiritually. Thus, from the point of view of the global oligarchy, the only method of imposing order and control – on this unique and historical human condition – is through the organized chaos of economic crises, war, and the rapid expansion and institutionalization of a global scientific dictatorship.
Our hope is their fear; and our greatest fear is their only hope.
As Charles Dickens once wrote, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.” That has never been so true as it is today.
Every day, we watch the news and see the talking heads go on and on about the same stuff: Obama is spending too much; Bush spent too much—we’ll stop spending over here, and use the money from over there to fund this project over here.” It’s the same argument, and unfortunately, it’s a huge distraction. Yes, Bush spent like a drunken sailor—Obama is continuing the spending. But to truly understand where we are economically, and where we’re headed and how to actually achieve economic prosperity again, we must first understand money, where it comes from, how the United States money works, and above all, we must define clearly the difference between Monetary Policy and Economic Policy.
First, Economic Policy. This is the easier and the less important to define, and unfortunately for this very reason, this is the policy that politicians and the talking heads on corporate news networks and state-run media outlets like to bicker about. Simply put, Economic Policy refers to the actions that a government takes in the field of money. How are they spending the money? How much goes to our ‘national security’? How much goes to this war as opposed to that war? How much will we ‘invest’ in green jobs? How much can we afford to ‘give back’ to the taxpaying (and non-taxpaying) citizens? These are the kinds of questions that deal with Economic Policy, and these are the only kinds of questions that we’re hearing people in the news ask.
Broadening the definition, we can typically say that there are two sides of Economic Policies: Liberal and Conservative. Using the current definitions of the day, ‘liberal’ would refer to a government spending more, and ‘conservative’ would refer to a government spending less.
It’s all a hoax.
The argument over ‘conservative and liberal’ economic policies is a hoax played on the American people by the Political Elite, who are in bed the the bankers, who are in bed with the unions, who are, in turn, in bed politicians.
To really understand this and to be able to sufficiently define “Monetary Policy”, it is important to define the 4 kinds of money: Commodity money (money back by gold in most cases), receipt money (money that can be redeemed on demand in full value in terms of gold or silver by the receipt-holder), fiat money (money not backed by gold or silver and is deemed legal tender by decree) and fractional money (which is how we function today along with fiat, and will be addressed later).
The real and more important (and more complicated) question is: ‘What is the Monetary Policy of the United States?’ This question refers to how we as a nation define money and how we create money. Simply put, there are basically 2 different ways to answer the question of how money is created and regulated: 1)a government body; 2)a central bank. Our Constitution clearly states that one of our Congress’ obligations is “To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures.” Further, many of our Founding Fathers were strong supporters of a currency that was backed by gold and silver, and not a paper money, mainly because they saw the horrors what artificially inflating or deflating the currency can do to a nation.
This is the reason that Keynes wrote (in his book The Economic Consequences of Peace, 1919): “Lenin is said to have declared that the best way to destroy the Capitalist System was to debauch the currency. By a continuing process of inflation, governments can confiscate, secretly and unobserved, an important part of the wealth of their citizens.
This is the exact reason that our Founders gave the responsibility to Congress to COIN money, not to print fraudulent paper money. Here’s what some of theme had to say at the Constitutional Convention concerning fiat money:
George Washington: “They may pass a law to issue paper money, but 20 laws will not make the people receive it. Paper money is founded upon fraud and knavery.”
James Wilson (PA): It will have the most salutary influence on the credit of the United States to remove the possibility of paper money.”
John Langdon (NH) warned that he would reject the entire plan of a federation if the government had the right to issue fiat money.’
George Mason (VA): Said he had a ‘moral hatred’ against paper money.
The result was a Constitution that gave the power to the Congress to COIN money, and prohibit specifically the states from issuing bills of credit (fiat money). Sound money backed by precious metal reigned free, and the results were economic prosperity. The Pennsylvania Gazette stated that since the Constitution removed the possibility of paper money, their trade increased 50%. The US exports jumped from $19 million to $93 from 1791 to 1801. By 1802 THE DEFICIT VANISHED, and the country experienced a surplus almost as large as the Government’s spending!
George Washington wrote in 1789, “We may one day become a great commercial and flourishing nation. But if in the pursuit of the means we should unfortunately stumble again on unfunded paper money or similar species of fraud, we shall assuredly give a fatal stab to our national credit in its infancy (emphasis added).
It is clear that this country’s Founders wanted a sound monetary policy, one backed by gold, to be the only kind of monetary policy for the country, because they, themselves lived through the horrors of inflation. Unfortunately, greed has a way of corrupting even the best men, and this is what led to depressions, wars, and our current economic situation.
The Constitution denies the Congress the bower to print money, but it does allow them to borrow money—if only there were some kind of Private Centralized Bank in America, then the government could borrow from them and get around the Constitution! This is exactly what happened with the 1st Central Bank of America [the Bank of North America] (1781-83), the 2nd Central Bank of America [the First Bank of the United States] (1791-1811), and lastly, the 3rd and Current Central Bank of America, known as the Federal Reserve [est. 1913].
This leads us to our second question from earlier. What is the Monetary Policy of the United States currently? The answer is that we are a nation that funds its money on bonds, which is essentially debt. Our money comes from our own debt. We are a nation with fiat money and the Federal Reserve is practicing Fractional Reserve Banking. But to truly understand the idiocy that is American Monetary Policy, we must learn exactly how the magic is done.
It is also important to realize that the Federal Reserve is an Unconstitutional institution. The Congress and the Congress alone has the authority to coin money. The Constitution does not say that the Congress could create a bank through the legislative process and divert the money-making process to them, and therefore, through the 10th Amendment, the Congress is not allowed to do so…but that didn’t stop them. Thanks to President Wilson (and the bankers who met at Jeckyll Island almost 100 years ago this year and planned the system), we are now stuck with a monetary system backed by nothing but US government debt.
Going to back to the original question about the difference between Monetary Policy and Economic Policy, you can see how Monetary Policy is much more important to our survival as a Republic than Economic Policy. The Government can be ‘fiscally conservative’ or ‘fiscally liberal’ in its spending in both a Commodity-Backed Monetary System and in a Fiat-Fractional Reserve System. It’s the Monetary Policy that makes all of the difference. With a Fiat Currency, the Government can literally spend money on anything it wants, which is what America is doing: troops in over 100 countries, constant wars, welfare spending like crazy, jobs for literally digging ditches, phony ’stimulus packages’ that don’t do anything but worsen the situation, bank bailout after bank bailout. And they do this by printing new money and the taxpayer never sees it—they don’t even realize that they’re getting taxed 10 times our National Debt.
With a Commodity-Backed Currency, however, politicians are forced to be fiscally sane. You can’t have your troops in over 100 countries ’spreading democracy’ without paying for it, and you can’t pass fake spending programs without paying for it—and the only way to pay for it with a Commodity-Backed Currency is by directly taxing the people. And if the people saw how much this cost, they would throw every last one those elected officials out on the street.
