“It does not take a majority to prevail … but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.”
Samuel Adams, American revolutionary and leader of the Boston Tea Party.
“Until you know who has lent what to whom, you know nothing whatever of politics, you know nothing whatever of history, you know nothing of international wrangles.”
“In keeping silent about evil, in burying it so deep within us that no sign of it appears on the surface, we are implanting it, and it will rise up a thousand fold in the future. When we neither punish nor reproach evildoers, we are not simply protecting their trivial old age, we are thereby ripping the foundations of justice from beneath new generations.” – Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago 1918-1956
I am opposed to American Imperialism. I am in good company. Mark Twain also opposed the Wars of Wall Street. The other day Stacy Herbert pointed out a sign that the end was nigh for these Ponzi scheme Central Bankers. She said the Velocity of Money has dropped to all time lows. Velocity refers to how many times Money changes hands or turns over in one year. It measures economic activity better than any lies told by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The chart below is the Velocity of MZM ( Money with Zero Maturity.) Investopedia defines it as all money in M2 less the time deposits, plus all money market funds. MZM has become one of the preferred measures of money supply because it better represents money readily available within the economy for spending and consumption.
We have a Debt Based currency. That means we must go to a Banker and beg for a loan at interest before we are allowed to have either paper or checking account money. All currency bears interest. Even if an employer pays his workers with a check which they all convert to cash. Everyone must bear the cost of holding money. This is not like the game of Monopoly where the banker hands out cash to everyone without interest.
My regular readers already know that a Depression is a period when Unpayable Debts are cancelled en masse. The conditions for Depressions are caused by an accumulation of Unpayable Debts. They are inherent in a system where the Banker loans you $10,000 and demands you pay him back $11,000 at the end of the year. You need to earn more money than was created. If you are in a Boom economic period, then Bankers are creating loans left and right and there is plenty of money around to pay the interest. John Maynard Keynes became famous because he suggested that governments go into debt during the Bust years of that economic cycle. The government’s act of adding to its debt increases the Money Supply so we can have more money and make our interest payments.
In the modern world the Bankers keep interest rates low so we can make our payments and avoid default. They do this by selling interest rate Credit Default Swaps. I noted previously that the Too Big To Jail Banks are taking turns selling $9 trillion in CDS in 3 month periods. As of January 2015, the Central Banks are buying all of the newly issued government debt. They have lowered interest rates so much so that 20% of all government bonds have negative interest rates. If you factored out the real inflation rate, then almost every government bond in the world has a negative return.
Stacy Herbert said the game of Monopoly ends when one player has all the money and the other players cannot participate in the game. And that is where we are today.
The Game is Over so What Next?
I have in the past read articles forwarded by others written by Jim Quinn at the Burning Platform website. I recently had to bookmark his site. He wrote an article about the Exit. This following was its title:
“The American people have lost their ability to think, reason, question, do math, control their urges, defer gratification, or realize when they are being lied to by the people they elected to public office”
The number of people classifying themselves as independents reached an all-time high of 47% in 2014, up from 27% in 2006. An awakening minority now realize Democrats and Republicans are nothing but brands appealing to liberals or conservatives, but representing the ruling Party and beholden to Wall Street, the military industrial complex, mega-corporations, and not the American people.
As trust in the political, economic and financial systems implodes, the existing social order will crumble and be swept away in a torrent of chaos and upheaval. Severe misery will settle on our land and tear the fabric of our society. Internal strife will be compounded by external threats, with citizens fighting each other and nations going to war on a large scale. It has happened before and it will happen again. The realization this Crisis would be driven by the conflict between government and the people occurred to me in 2013 when Edward Snowden revealed the depth and depravity of a government which believes it to not be bound by the constraints of the Constitution, laws, regulations, or human decency.
What kind of government clandestinely spies on its citizens; militarizes local police forces; conducts military training operations in major cities; wires its streets and highways with surveillance cameras; disperses peaceful protestors with water cannons, tear gas, pepper spray, and rubber bullets; and treats the U.S. Constitution like toilet paper? An authoritarian regime treats its people like this. Authoritarian regimes treat everyone like a potential enemy. They trust no one. Those in power care only for themselves and their lackeys.
Those in power are preparing for war – against you. There are two things the ruling class fear the most – the internet and the approximately 300 million guns owned by citizens in 50 million households. The State, through the FCC, wants to “regulate” the internet to “protect” people from being told something other than what the State wants them to hear.
After the 2008 financial collapse the guilty were not punished, prosecuted nor reproached for their criminally destructive schemes to loot the American people and the world. Instead they were bailed out, allowed to retain their wealth and power, and rewarded for their misdeeds with further riches provided by their politician puppets in Washington D.C. Evil won. The masses were frightened into keeping silent and believing bankers, politicians, and government bureaucrats had saved their world of bread (debt based consumption) and circuses (iGadgets & HDTVs). Ultimately, this Fourth Turning Crisis will come down to a battle between good and evil. It would be easy if the evil people revealed themselves and the good people could destroy them, but evil and good exist within all human beings.
Mr Quinn gives us an accurate description of life in the modern world. He has been studying and making sense of the book The Fourth Turning by William Strauss and Neil Howe. Their study divided American history into four repeating cycles.
Please note this point very well:
Fourth Turnings always climax with war on a grand scale. There will be no escape.
We are in the Unraveling and are entering the Crisis phase.
We are in the End Game for the Ponzi Scheme Bankers. They have gouged so many interest payments and taxes out of us that there is nothing left to squeeze out of us. I agree that the next war will be against us.
The Ukraine cannot be the flash point for WW III. The US coup installed Jewish leaders in the Ukraine. The Kiev coup has committed war crimes, stolen money by the billions and sold out the people to foreign interests including Monsanto. It is no surprise to me that they are losing the war against the Russian separatists. Scratch the Ukraine from the list.
There are 3 remaining potential flash points for an international war. The Greek Leftists sold out their people and are filing a plan to stay in the Eurozone. If I were Putin, I would have destroyed the EU by offering to let the Geeks use rubles. But Putin is a cautious player and is hampered by his own Jewish Lobby. I have pointed out in the past that Putin has refused to give Iran faster missiles like the Iskander which has Mach 5.5 speed in its export version.
A second flash point developed recently when Obama’s use of drones failed to win the hearts and minds of the people of Yemen. Obama could not successfully get anything going there even if he wanted to. Russia and Iran could easily counter any move he made.
Obama’s best place to start World War III would be in Iraq and Syria. He used proxy armies to destroy Libya. Iraq, Libya, Syria, Iran and Lebanon were 5 of the nations on that list of 7 General Wesley Clark reported the Pentagon had been told to destroy. That list must have originated in Israel. If you are interested, you can research the writings of Oded Yinon, the Israeli journalist. The more modern version was written by Richard Pearle in A Clean Break. The latter document was written for Benjamin Netanyahu in the 1990s but has determined American foreign and military policy in both the Bush and Obama presidencies.
Obama successfully destroyed Libya for Israel. Obama also hired proxy armies to attack Syria just as Bilderberg Steering Committee member Richard Perle had dictated in A Clean Break. Perle had said the proxy armies were to attack Syria over the issue of chemical weapons. Obama did that for Israel. He paid the terrorists who did use chemical weapons while condemning the Syrian government. In 2012 Obama trained, armed and funded Al Qaeda of Iraq. Arming Al Qaeda has been contrary to US law since 911. Al Qaeda of Iraq changed their name to ISIS.
A year ago ISIS invaded Iraq and took the town of Mosul. They had a Green Light from Obama who refused to use American air power when they could easily have been defeated on the road to Mosul. He had also denied delivery of the planes Iraq had ordered and even paid for. The Iraqis eventually bought Russian planes and hired retired Syrian pilots. Baghdad was only saved from Isis by an Iranian general and his men who defeated the terrorists in a series of battles.
The latest developments reveal the criminal and treasonous nature of both political parties. Obama claims he is bombing ISIS. He is not. He bombs them if they attack the Kurds who are Israeli allies. He does bomb the Syrian Army and Syria’s infrastructure. But more importantly Obama is sending supplies into ISIS both by air drop and by land through Turkey.
The US Congress in December appropriated $500 million for the anti-Assad rebels. These people are not moderates. They killed 300,000 Syrians including 100,000 Christians. These ‘moderates’ are the people who uploaded videos of themselves beheading priests and even committing random acts of cannibalism. Obama followed through by saying he will give the Syrian rebels the ability and authority to call in US air strikes. He is ramping up the war in Iraq with US ground troops and air support. The plan obviously is to force ISIS back into Syria where they can kill Syrian soldiers with US air support.
This plan is an abomination. It is treason. It might draw Iran into the wider war. Iran is so well armed with modern missiles that the US Central Command and the Persian Gulf fleet would be destroyed in minutes of US aggression. I might point out that Iran is a military ally of Russia, China and Pakistan through the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO.) I do not think the war Obama is planning against Syria will either succeed or give him the World War Wall Street wants.
The public, as Quinn and others have said, has been reduced by design to a near vegetative state. The media is owned by the same crowd that owns the American government. The only people capable of saying No to treason are American military officers and enlisted personnel. We have been at war for 13 years. We have lost thousands of Americans and killed millions of innocents overseas for nothing. Two years ago Obama had threatened Syria with an air and naval campaign to rain down bombs and missiles upon his country.
American military men took to the social media posting pictures of themselves in uniform holding signs saying ‘I did not join the Air Force to become Al Qaeda’s Air Force (Navy).’ General Martin Dempsey who is a Globalist had to go to the White House just before midnight to explain that the American military would mutiny before they will attack Syria for Al Qaeda. I would hope they do that again. If they do, then World War III will be cancelled.
If there is no World War III, the Bankers will expect the ‘crotch gropers’ at the TSA to join with local police departments and maybe 100,000 US troops to stop Nationwide Food Riots when 120 million Americans have absolutely nothing to eat. Good luck with that. Americans have 350 million guns. The billionaires might get away to Patagonia but their Minions will be Left Behind to serve as target practice.
The only sane alternative in which everyone wins is for the US military to take over, arrest the Bankers, seize their assets and organize a worldwide Debt Cancellation. I see no other Exit in which we all live.
