And no one thinks to examine the most basic factor of all.
Examine one of those scrips you carry in your pocket. Some people call them Federal Reserve Notes. Well, they are: “FEDERAL RESERVE NOTE” is actually printed across its top. It is, in other words, nothing more than a particular kind of promissory note. A promissory note is a kind of contract; and, on each side of the contract there is a party (or parties). If you are one of those parties, the person on the other side is a counterparty.
So, who is the counterparty relative to the Federal Reserve note?
When I was in the Navy, I was the lead electronic technician (ET) for a task force of 8 ships; when ET’s on other ships couldn’t fix gear, they’d call me. Most of the problems were too simple for them to see. For example, who would think to check the AC plug? It’s the simplest thing that could go wrong, and yet, nothing happens without secure connections to power. It would usually take me about 15 minutes to find this problem (more than once); and I never told them what I did; didn’t want to embarrass them.
We have the same problem today: people fail to consider the most basic of factors needed to secure capital: namely, our currency unit. Please read more.
Failure of Power.
We hear and see many stories about false flags perpetrated, and that will be perpetrated, by governments and their string pullers – big banks, munitions makers and the cut, burn and poison industry. You’d think that, with all the publicity, bandit and useful-idiot classes would refrain from such false flags; yet, it doesn’t seem to slow them in the least. How do we recognize a false flag… and why are they perpetrated with impunity? …It’s because Americans have the power to correct any grievance that could be named… and they choose not to use that power. There are three main reasons for this failure… (full article)
Harry Potter, and Time.
Historians tell us the ancient world reached apexes in every kind of human activity during the first century Current Era (commonly, AD). Thus, began the Dark Age; from which men did not recover former levels of achievement until the 19th century CE.
A question arises, ‘Where would we be today if men had overthrown the “nation of death”, which gave us the Dark Age, about the year 50 CE?’ Would we be traveling among the stars… with colonies on several planets thru-out the galaxy? And, without the corrupting influence of this “nation of death”, could we have rid the planet of wars, poverty, hunger, sleaze, slavery? The head spins with possibilities; and the heart breaks for the horrors men have suffered during the long and dark night of death… and continues, in too many ways, into our own day.
And, how is this related to Harry Potter… er, J. K. Rowling?
Is Occupy Wall Street a Bolshevik… or an American Revolution?
Will Durant described history as a long monotonous chronicle of the crime and folly of men. I think it would be just as well described as a story of crime and futility – by criminal and useless classes and their victims, respectively. Despite the huge number of attempted revolutions in our history, few people seem to realize that there are two kinds of revolution. One advances the cause of tyranny; the other, the cause of liberty. I give one the name of Bolshevik; the other, American… after their most recent and spectacular examples. Oh, people do realize, of sorts, that a revolution can produce more liberty or more tyranny; but they believe that it is a mere throw of dice that determines which it will be. And, for this doubt, they fear a revolution as one should fear a plague. This does not have to be: as I explain in my book, The Lost Right, each of the differing revolutions operates according to a particular set of principles and laws of nature. (Please read more)
“What was the end of killing the tyrant, but to be free from tyranny? A ridiculous motive, and empty exploit, if our slavery survive him.” Cicero
The quote by Cicero is part of the legacy won by the American Revolution; not because he said it, but, because the English rebel, John Elliot, authored an example of it. And, there’s hardly an American alive who knows it.
American Founders relied heavily on English rebels for direction and procedures needed to successfully win their bid for independence; the Petition of Rights of 1628, the Grand Remonstrance of 1640, the so-called Bill of Rights of 1688, among many other milestones of liberty.
One of the more significant items was the resolution introduced by John Elliot by which taxes imposed without the consent of parliament was made a capital offense. The measure was passed by the House of Commons before Charles dissolved parliament and arrested several members. Twelve years later, parliament used Elliot’s resolution as the basis to take down judges and tax collectors, clergy and kings for asserting “the divine right of kings” and imposing taxes that had not received the assent of parliament; these were actual charges.
This relates how English rebels (1620-50) took down corrupt judges and tax-collectors, bishops and kings who thot they had a divine right to impose taxes or debt on other men without the latters’ consent; men who, 150 years later, would guide American rebels. These examples represent some of the most dramatic and significant scenes in the long struggle from barbarism to civilized society – scenes that have almost been completely erased from current history and law books.
When a professor (or some other licensed “expert”) tells us the government is a guardian of our rights, some may ask, “Is he, or she, a willing pawn – or a gullible fool?”… It doesn’t really matter: whether pawn or fool, the result will be the same… A very large fraction of Americans can be classified into either of these categories – with or without license; and the main thing you need to know about them is that they will die, or kill, rather than correct their self-destructive habits. These people control instruments of power across the globe; as far as they are concerned, if destruction of civilized society is necessary to secure rule by thieves, it shall be done… And the problem, from our perspective, is, ‘How do we protect ourselves from their murderous political system?’ How, for example, do we protect our property (from physical gold, to businesses, to stocks and bonds (domestic and foreign)) from false allegations provided and protected by the act of Congress that established the DHS? [That’s right, by this legislation Congress has issued an invitation and provided protection to any who would inform (make false allegations) on neighbor, friends or those more successful than the informer. Of course, they aren’t actually “informers”; but rather a “submitting person”, and they are guaranteed immunity for their lies by a legislative mandate that forbids their lies to be examined by any executive, judicial, or legislative agency of any American government. An informer, I mean, a “submitting person” only has to give an “express statement” that his lies were “voluntarily given” and that he expected “protection from disclosure”; so much for due process of law. It’s all there, in the act that created the DHS… This could be a problem with all existing forums of redress controlled by criminal and useless classes – a major problem. Please read more.
Returning America to Obedience
Over the past 20 years or so, we have witnessed several unprecedented events: the looting of Central-Bank gold thru the gold carry trade (almost completely ignored by the controlled media; events of 9/11; the financial crisis of 2007 (and counting); bailouts of 2008 and 2009 (one to give unprecedented booty to bankers and munitions makers; the other, to give a few crumbs to public labor unions). (See ‘What Price Gold…’ and ‘Anatomy of a General Plunder, part I’.
Of course, there have been the usual wars to camouflage and justify these general plunders… and to ruin another generation or two of young American males.
Some call these catastrophes “a grand escapade only made possible thru the use of monetary smoke and mirrors.”
Granted. But it is also much more than “a grand escapade”. What we are witnessing, or struggling thru, are final stages of a plan to utterly destroy America that began some 230 years ago.
An early warning, not the first, came from the London Times (please read more):
Looking for an investment with a return of 10%-20%? Or would you like something better, like an investment with an annual return of 5%-10%. Ah, how can this be… the second better than the first? The first is a dollar denominated return; the second would be gold-denominated… Thus, with the first a RETURN of capital and interest would eventually amount to zero value (with a dollar collapse)… The second would give you the appreciation of physical gold plus 5% per year.
Will Ron Paul in the White House trigger the next Dark Age?
I used to tell people there was no chance that Ron Paul could even come close to winning the White House. There are too many men in history who tried to reform governments who were eliminated by demonization, poison or banishment. I thought that, if Ron Paul got anywhere near the White House, he would suffer one of these fates. My thoughts about two of these possibilities (poison and banishment) are past tense. I’ve had time to consider a wider perspective. Now I think the criminal class look at Ron Paul as their man of the hour. Or, more correctly, he could be ‘their scapegoat of the hour’.
