From birth we've been taught that in politics what you see is what you get. We've been told that the Mainstream media and so-called Alternative media are telling us the truth, the whole truth, about political and economic events. If there were any conspirators manipulating events behind the scenes, then some insider would spill the beans, making millions in the process and becoming a national hero for his courage. Therefore, while most people acknowledge the conspiratorial actions of small town politicians and their local power structure, there are no conspiracies of national or international consequence. Question: who benefits by this belief?
Even though I once held this view, I now know it is purposefully created delusion. Yet I hear it repeated every day.
President John F. Kennedy thought otherwise, and courageously said as much in a speech to the press three months after taking office. (View video.)"Kennedy was a big supporter of the Constitution, he was against the tyranny of big government. He wanted to withdraw US troops from Vietnam. He wanted to abolish the CIA and Federal Reserve, and he warned us of criminal elements within the establishment who wanted to seize an opportunity to restrict people's freedoms. He urged the press to be more open and to fulfill its obligation to inform the American people about pertinent facts. And on top of that he spoke openly and candidly about the dangers of secret societies and their influence over the way government works. So is it any wonder that he was dramatically silenced only two years after making this epic speech?"
One of the best introductions to the subject you can get free. You can download Dr. Gary North's Conspiracy: A Biblical View here. If you still think there are no significant conspiracies, read this or stop speaking and thinking nonsense. The crises of our times are much too dire for you to choose agnosticism or obtuseness about this issue.
For a small taste of the role of the Rockefeller Foundation in promoting globalism and the subversion of American sovereignty, read Dr. Dennis Cuddy's "The Rockefeller Plan." The rich and powerful play by different rules than we ordinary folk, and have different goals in mind when there is no practical benefit to earning more money.
Our financial crisis is an engineered crisis. Like the 9-11 attacks, what we're seeing is a controlled demolition of the economy in favor of the Global Elite. Financial insiders ("Wall Street" for short) engaged in massive fraud and theft prior to the emergence of the crisis, with blatant thievery taking place now. Watch this remarkable Bill Moyers interview with William Black discussing the blatant, high-level fraud by Wall Street CEOs that makes Bernie Madoff look like an amateur.
Some estimate that the theft (er, "bailout") so far is over $12 Trillion -- equal to the national GDP! The capital structure of the US is being stolen right before our eyes, in defiance of, and to the extreme detriment of, the people. It has been said that the last official act of any government is to loot the country before it leaves.
Goldman Sachs is the largest ultimate recipient of bailout funds, and just so happens to be the source of so many Treasury Secretaries and staff. Federal Reserve Chairman Bernanke resists Congressional calls to show who are the recipients of bailout money that transforms future American generations into indentured servants. (Or maybe we will just see our currency destroyed, along with the middle class and retirees, as has happened three times this century in Argentina.) Read The Creature from Jekyll Island for a detailed account of the big bankers conspired to create the insidious Federal Reserve Bank. The power to print money is the power to control countries.
Look at how the FBI created a "strategic alliance" with the Mortgage Bankers Association early in the unfolding crisis, and how this has led to a condition where there have been NO indictments for fraud so far -- although one industry observer believes there at least 500,000 cases of mortgage fraud that have been perpetrated by lenders! Conspiracy? Heaven forbid!!
Or take a look at the circumstances surrounding the exposure of the sex scandal that bounced Elliot Spitzer from the New York Governor's office. Just a few weeks after his detailed attack in the Washington Post on the Bush administration for its collusion with predatory lenders, the FBI went public with its report on Spitzer and prostitution. With all the real problems in the US, then why is the FBI involved in enforcing prostitution laws, unless they are being used as a political
hit squad? Connect the dots. Get the picture?
On top of all this is the move to implement the Global Elite's long-range dream of a World Government. British PM Gordon Brown, Henry Kissinger and many others are openly calling for a New World Order, along with calls for a new global reserve currency and central bank. Plans to do this emerged in the aftermath of the recent G20 meeting.
Want to change this through the political process? Think Obama will bring real change from the direction we're going? Then think through what Insider historian Carroll Quigley said in his seminal book, Tragedy and Hope: "The two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can 'throw the rascals out' at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy."
Jesse Ventura, ex-Minnesota Governor and ex-professional wrestler, has said that American politics is much like professional wrestling. He should know. The false left-right paradigm gives the appearance of opposition, but in reality, the Elite owns all major candidates and Presidents. Mavericks like Dennis Kucinich, Ralph Nader and Ron Paul are ridiculed by the Mainstream media, while washed up has-beens like John (Keating Five) McCain, are resurrected over a cold January weekend to fill one side of the fight card.
Obama is just the latest manifestation of political continuity, appearing as change, in at least the last hundred years of American politics. The idea that Obama emerged from nowhere on a swell of grassroots support to capture the Presidency and decisively change America for the better is an infantile fantasy, a manifestation of magical thinking. If you believe that, I have some US Treasury Bonds I'd like to sell you! And if you think that Obama is not totally in the pocket of the Global Elite and Wall Street, then you might like some Credit Default Swaps, too!!Remember: the real issue is not the false left-right paradigm that confuses political thinking. It is liberty vs. power, or as George Ure at UrbanSurvival.com (must reading with your morning coffee) says, the PTB vs. the people. He comments on the results of recent political polling: "When the cross-tabbing and interviewing's done, turns out the partisan gap between the republicorps and the democorps is at its widest in a long spell. Now that is useful information. When the real 'balance of power' in the world is between the 'haves and the have-nots, notice how the partisan lines/ vertical axis get ramped up in order to suck people back into the right/left paradigm, rather than the horizontal axis which defines vertical position: the PTB vs. the people... something to ponder, doncha think?" Yes, please think, dear reader.
The bottom line of all this is that conspiracies are common thoughout history, and are happening today. Too many of us are like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz. We're mesmerized by the sound and fury put on by the Wizard. Instead, we should have the courage of Toto to look behind the curtain. Only then will we be able to understand what's happening, and maybe chart a different course than the Criminal Elite has in store for us. If we choose, instead, not to look, then we're without excuse in our chosen victimhood.
Grace and Courage and Peace to You!
