Knowing what you know now, would you have the courage or determination to stop Adolf Hitler if he were still in power today? What if he were doing to your own country what he did to so many others? Would you then take action? I sure hope so. It is based on my belief that most of us would actually take action against him today that I write this article. Hitler is no longer with us, of course, but his puppeteers and the organization that HE reported to are still very much alive and well. So my question to you is, what are you, as an American and a Christian willing to do about those who are even worse that the evil Fuhrer?

Fact: Hitler’s fascist dream was fully funded by those who were more rich and powerful than he was. In fact, this was done specifically as a test to determine whether or not the fascist economy was feasible. Hitler provided the perfect character and Germany provided the perfect demographics to those who were pulling the strings for this experiment.  (See Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler by Anthony Sutton)

So, who are these puppeteers? Unfortunately their presence is vast and found abundantly in every government throughout the world. They represent the top 10% of the entire wealth of the world. They perpetuate their desires for more money and more power through organizations such as the New World Order, the United Nations, the Tri-lateral Commission, the Illuminati, and other like organizations. Yes, the Nazi movement was funded by American AND European international bankers. The whole plan was not simply to take over Germany, but more specifically to take over Russia which had a great deal of land mass, population, and natural resources. As any student of Russian history can see, this powerful group of conspirators has been very successful in running Russia and its Communistic agenda. As you know, WWII was able to bring about much destruction to Russia, and it was certainly successful in infiltrating their monetary system, government, and culture which remains in place today. (These same groups also funded and manipulated the Bolshevik Revolution, prior to WWII in order to pave the way for their plans. John Schiff, for example, a very prominent member of the New York wealthy contributed about $20,000,000 for the Bolshevik Revolution. There were also many other New York firms who contributed as well. (See Secret Records Revealed by Dennis Laurence Cuddy, PhD, pg. 28). So, what’s next? Where else is there an intelligent and talented population, a great deal of land mass, and natural resources? Um…that would be the United States of America. A reasonable, yet diabolical, plan would be to crumble the United States while also perpetuating the threat of conflict between these two powerhouse nations. While such an assertion will officially “out” me as a “nut,” I feel that I must shed some light on this matter because I know it’s true. I know this is real. I pray that there are those who will read this and ask themselves some of the same questions.

As I was doing some more research recently regarding the Federal Reserve, NWO, and the United Nations, I was struck with this concept. I found myself asking this question: “Surely no American would tolerate Hitler’s behavior today, but would they be willing to tolerate the actions and sheer evil of those who influenced Hitler?” I have to believe that the answer is NO. I have to believe that Americans will wake up to the fact that we are being manipulated in every possible, way, shape, and form possible by those who believe they pull the strings and hold all of the power. I may be naïve to think that we would all look up from our Guitar Hero II, Facebook, or other addictions long enough to take notice of what is actually going on, let alone do something about it. But I can at least hope.

So what is it exactly that “they” are doing? They are carrying out their objective to rewrite our entire way of life. The New World Order for example has a very clear and concise set of goals.

1)     Abolish Monarch and all ordered Government

2)     Abolish Private Property

3)     Abolish Inheritance

4)     Abolish Patriotism

5)     Abolish the Family

6)     Abolish all religion

(See World Revolution by Nesta Webster)

Well, let’s look at the first one. They sure are making a dent, aren’t they? What government we do have has been infiltrated with ulterior motives, complacency, and every possible violation against the U.S. Constitution possible. We cease to have a government when our government officials are acting improperly and in violation of our own laws. In spite of us having three branches of government intended to uphold and protect the U.S. Constitution, every branch of our government has succumbed to corruption and treasonous acts. Our executive branch, for example–Clinton illegally calling us into the war in Kosovo for 78 days. Only Congress has such authority and yet Clinton got away with it without so much as a “boo” from anyone. No Congressional investigation. No media coverage. No outcry. Legislation is taking place from our Judiciary branch of government rather than upholding the law. Did you know that you’re not even permitted to bring up the Constitution when arguing a case?! You have to cite another, previous case. You cannot bring up the U.S. Constitution when supporting a case and expect it to have any weight! Lastly we have our legislative branch supporting illegal and unconstitutional laws knowingly, and even worse unknowingly, because they can’t be bothered to even read the proposed legislation. So why are these persons behaving this way and compromising everything we hold dear? Because they are clearly being influenced by those who have the money. Why in the world do you think that we went after Saddam Hussein instead of some enemies of the U.S. who are an even bigger threat to us such as some Chinese persons? Oh, that would be because we can’t make any waves with the Chinese. They own us. They are carrying too much of our debt.  Instead we manipulate the media and portray Hussein as enemy number 1, bring about a war so that the “powers that be” can reap huge profits, and do the bidding as the world’s police enforcement as desired by the United Nations. Yeah, Hussein was horrid. But he’s nowhere NEAR the threat that the media would have had us believe. We simply had to be manipulated to be completely behind the war against him and his nation in order for the plan to be carried out. We don’t even have to go outside of our own country to find villains who are much worse than Hussein. Our government is definitely not intact, folks.

Second: Private Property. Yup. They’ve pretty much demolished that as indicated by the big check that everyone has to write this time of year. Even with a completely free and clear home, we are still obligated to pay our property taxes.  We also have to pay taxes again and again on the supplies which we purchase for our business. You see folks, if you don’t have property, you are not truly free. We all instinctively require a place to call home. We need a holy abode that is ours to flourish in, raise a family, teach, worship, and live as we please. If we never truly have our own home, then we are never free to just be. This is precisely why private property is on the radar of the conspirators.

Third: Inheritance. This is the same as private property. Death is inevitable to all men. But if we have a bunch of oppressive and overwhelming laws that makes the passing down of property and wealth to someone else then it compounds and makes a lay citizen wealthy with time. However, if the inheritance is taxed out the wazoo, then with every death that takes place in our nation, the powerful become more wealthy and it’s only a matter of time until they own the majority of it all.

Fourth: Patriotism. Do I need to address anything else other than how the DHS heads are attempting to portray the patriotic in this nation? Remember, the media is OWNED, lock, stock and barrel, by the wealthy conspirators. They got paid plenty of money to portray the Tea Parties with unrepeatable descriptions!  (Also, keep in mind that DHS came to be because of an act of war. Contrived? Yup. Coincidence? I think not.)

Fifth: The abolishment of the family. In other words marriage, morality, the education of our children, etc. are all under attack. Let’s diminish the role of the parents in the lives of the children. Let’s minimize the value of a child. Let’s tax married couples more than we tax single parents. That’s right. Let’s assign a financial penalty for being married and then while we’re at it, let’s desecrate what marriage even is. Let’s give the government authority to step in and take children from their parents without any legal prudence. In fact, just to show how worthless a marriage and fidelity is, let’s elect prominent government officials and parade around their infidelity! Also, let’s keep siblings away from each other. Forget that there is a foster family that’s fully willing to take ALL THREE boys under the age of 8 into their loving home. Let’s be a just plain stupid judge and send one of the boys to a foster home that doesn’t have the time, inclination, or desire to take care of him. Yup. The very existence of a family is under attack at every possible turn.

And lastly, abolish religion. This is the most frightening one of all. In the name of “religious freedom” all three branches of our government have curbed the freedom of religious expression to make broad room for the expression of NO religion. Don’t people realize that Satanism and atheism is not a religion? The founding fathers intended to protect religion, not those who have no religious belief. I can burn a flag, but I cannot pledge to it. I can get on my knees in submission to a warrantless arrest, but I cannot kneel in prayer in public lands. Yes, our religious freedom, our families, our patriotism, our inheritance of values and property, as well as our property and government have all been chiseled down to represent a more fascist world of power.

So in closing, I ask the same question I began with. Are you willing to stop the very same evil that drove Hitler’s actions?

“A rose by any other name is still a rose.”  Isn’t it interesting how our government has camouflaged its selected names of programs and legislation in order to falsely influence the American people as to what these issues really are?  You’ve heard of oxy-morons such as “military intelligence” in jest, I’m sure.  But when it comes to many of the name games our government plays, there’s nothing funny about it. 

1)    National Security Letters: The name implies that these are letters which provide or promote security to our nation, when in fact they are used abusively by the FBI, CIA, DOD, and NSA to as a weapon against law-abiding citizens.  Additionally there is no limit to the amount or type of information which can be seized via an NSL.  And they are now to be complied with without exception.  Today, in order for any federal agent (FBI, DOD, or CIA) to write an NSL, they must only comply with the requirement that they claim—not provide any evidence thereof—that the desired records may be related to an ongoing terrorism investigation or intelligence activities.  These warrants require the production of “any tangible things” such as books, records, documents, lists, etc, without any consideration given to any reasonable time frames or costs to produce such information.  Oh, and by the way, there is NO judicial oversight on the use of these, not even from Congress.  As if that’s not enough, whoever receives such a “letter” is legally gagged from telling anyone about them, even if it’s your own attorney who receives it.  The attorney can’t even tell YOU that he’s about to turn over all of your files to the FBI.  Now how’s that for national security?

2)   Federal Reserve:  Contrary to what their own website states, as well as that of other government agencies, there is nothing “federal” about the Federal Reserve.  They are not a part of the US Government.  In fact, in an interview with Alan Greenspan, when asked, “What should be the proper relationship between the chairman of the Federal and the President of the United States?” Greenspan responded, “Well, first of all the Federal Reserve is an independent agency.  And that means basically there is no other agency of government which can overrule actions that we take, so long as that is in place and there is no evidence that the administration or congress or anybody else is requesting that we do things other than what we think is the appropriate thing, then what the relationships are don’t frankly matter.”  While the Federal Reserve behaves as a 4th branch of our government, there is no governing authority over them other than for Congress to rule that we will no longer do business with them.  Good luck with that, right?  In addition, there is no longer any “reserves” backing the currency issued by the Federal Reserve.  We don’t even require them to issue a report that tells us how much currency is in circulation so that we can be sure our money still holds its value.  Ultimately, the Federal Reserve name is just as contrived to deceive as was a local computer company in my neck of the woods called “Totally Awesome Computers” (It went bankrupt).

3)   Carbon Credits: Wow. This name sounds like the U.S. taxpayers might actually get a credit for something, right?  Wrong.  These two words combine to become the most threatening level of taxation that our nation has ever seen.  As a result of the passage of a “Carbon Credits” program, countless energy companies will be required to pay for the air they use.  As a result, they will of course pass these fees on to their consumers.  Electricity, gasoline, natural gas, kerosene, coal, and even solar energy just became significantly more expensive.  As the result of this “credit” every American household can expect an average of a $3,000 INCREASE to their electric bill every year.  That’s just ONE source of energy you use.  If I continue to tell you about all of the other ramifications, I’m afraid that there will be a run on the pharmacies for anti-depressants nationwide.

4)   The G.I.V.E. Act: Once again, a very deceptive name.  The only thing this act gives is unconstitutional orders.  While admittedly it’s been scaled down a bit from its first version as HR 1388, (and changed HR and Senate numbers multiple times) it’s still ridiculously named.  The original proposal under HR 1388 would REQUIRE citizens of America in a wide range of ages to provide a mandatory period of “service” to their communities in whatever fashion the government deemed necessary.  In addition to that, the House of Representatives even added an amendment that stated that while individuals were in the process of providing this “voluntary” service, they were prohibited from engaging in numerous acts of free speech.  Yup. That’s a GIVE act, alright.  Giving American citizens the ole heave ho, at least.

5)   The Patriot Act: This is the mother of all misnamed issues.  I’m convinced that our Founding Fathers and all those who sided with them during the Revolutionary War feel that their true title of “Patriot” has been mercilessly molested.  There is nothing Patriot or patriotic about this act.  It consistently tramples on countless constitutional amendments in the name of protecting our nation from terrorism.  Now we are instructed to not even use the word “terrorist” or “enemy combatants” but we’re still stuck with this offensive violation of our rights to free speech.  The not-so-Patriot Act has Congress giving his agents permission to listen to our phone calls, read our e-mails, and obtain unlimited amount of personal information about us.  The “war on terror,” which gave birth to this heinous beast, has quickly disguised itself as an enemy intrusion on American’s privacy, freedom of movement and thought, individuality and civil liberties.  Does that mean that the terrorists have essentially won now?

Ultimately the lesson we all need to learn here is that we cannot afford to be mindless sheep armed with good hearts.  We must be more proactive in discovering and educating ourselves with the abundance of truthful information that is available to us.  Getting our misinformation from the mass media will be no excuse when we appear before our Creator and attempt to explain to Him how we let something so valuable as freedom disintegrate from our nation.  Each and every one of us is endowed with the freedom to choose, thus God’s perfect law will require that each and every one of us be held responsible for what we did with those choices.  I believe that an understanding of this responsibility is why our Founding Fathers sacrificed all that they had to give us the rights to freely choose freedom.  Indeed, when we’re before the Creator of Truth, we surely won’t be able to play the politicking finger pointing game.  The blame will be ours regardless of how the program was masqueraded.

aig-ceo-signs-hearing

 

I understand that when I write this it will be evident that I’m clearly not an ordinary American.  And I’m completely OK with that.  Here goes… I don’t believe that the AIG CEO should have been drawn in front of the cameras and skewered by Congressmen.  I don’t believe that AIG honoring contracts to pay $165 million in bonuses is a heinous act.  In fact, I feel that this whole parade of finger pointing at AIG is simply an effort to take the focus off of who is truly at fault in the first place.  This whole debacle is merely the result of a government gone bad—publicly—making even more horrible mistakes as they try to fix their egregious errors, and getting caught with the consequences. 

 

aig-buildingAIG is completely responsible for the debacle they created in the first place.  Clearly they got carried away with their own sense of power and influence and wrote too many checks they could not cover.  And they talked a good talk to many other key financial institutions worldwide to get them to play in their power game as well.  So what did that get us?  Financial ruin.  Now let’s look at this for a moment…  These people are supposedly uber-giants of expertise in financial management and yet they could not manage their own house!  They got completely drunk with their power and just like an inebriated lug of a giant they lost their reasoning and functionality abilities and stumbled—hard!  OK.  So we’ve got a giant who’s in a drunken stupor about to self-destruct and take down questionably innocent bystanders in his wake.  What do we do?  Well, yeah, we give the alcoholic lush MORE power.  No, we don’t take his license or privilege away.  No, we don’t put him into any kind of treatment.  Instead, we find him an even better “dealer” to work with (a.k.a. the Federal Reserve and U.S. Treasury) who can simply bail them out.  We give him an even more audacious privilege of using the tax payer dollars and that of several generations to come to “get him back on his feet.”  And then when he functions the same way he did previously, and even has the audacity to honor contracts, we react to publicly condemn him?  Condemn the giant so that nobody is wise to the “dealer” who feeds and encourages his misbehavior.  Now that’s quite the deception isn’t it?  (Side bar: It’s interesting to note that Congress doesn’t really care about the legality of contracts.  They don’t even enforce the most significant contract we Americans have to protect us, that of the U.S. Constitution.)

 

Here’s the perfect part of this deception, folks.  If (and I’m SOOO inclined to say “when”) AIG can’t pay us all back, what happens to them?  If they go bankrupt, what recourse do we, the tax payers who’ve been yoked with indentured servitude in order to lift this giant’s sorry caboose back up, get back?  What’s our collateral on this loan we’ve been forced to issue at the risk of death, jail time, or social and emotional ruin?  Not one blasted thing!  Nothing.  We probably won’t even get a sincere apology from a public official when it does go belly up.  Adding insult to injury is the fact that the primary people making these decisions are themselves so completely disconnected from the real picture due to their own wanton consumption habits.  They are endowed with their salary for the rest of their life, benefit from a royal health plan, and yet some even fail to pay their own taxes.  

 

aig-moneyAIG clearly has their own problems.  But just as I shake my head in disbelief when women refuse to leave their abusive husbands, I just can’t figure out what kind of maniacal plan the Secretary of Treasury and the Federal Reserve had in mind on this one.  Who gave them the authority to determine that one business gets bailed out above another?  That one business is any more important to our social fabric than another?  That the consequences called Real Life don’t apply to these companies?  Even worse, IF you’re going to perform such an unprecedented act, aren’t you at least willing to go through the homework of everything that act entails, i.e. reading all of the contracts that are presently in place, properly appraising just how much their other assets really are worth, etc?!  Gentlemen, don’t approve the act of an AIG bailout 100% and then get mad when something happens that you didn’t know about – i.e.: the AIG bonuses.  You had every opportunity to know everything there was to know.  It’s called a test.  A real life test.  You know, the kind of real life testing that all of your schooling and life experiences are supposed to prepare you for so that you’re actually competent enough to take the job that the American people pay you to do!  And clearly you screwed up!  It’s your own freaking fault that you didn’t know about it!  Just as it’s your own freaking fault that you overpaid for assets in the tens of billions of dollars!  So let’s be perfectly clear about this… whoever closed the bail out deal with AIG in the first place is 100% responsible and should be FIRED and perhaps even have charges filed for willful negligence at best, or treasonous acts at worst. 

 

madoff1How dare our government condemn Madoff when they are doing the EXACT same thing with all of our money?  And lest anyone forget, yes – it’s OUR money, not the government’s.  We earn it while we work on the frontlines while we simultaneously are shown how little responsibility and accountability means to those who are in power.  And yet we still provide our tax dollars for the purposes of paying for a government to protect our freedoms.

 

The U.S. Government is mismanaging funds.

 

They are playing a shell game. 

 

The Federal Reserve just keeps printing money and yet REFUSES to provide our country with an accounting of just how much money (via the M3 report) they are printing, thus we are unable to define for ourselves what our currency is really worth.  How in the world is that any different than Madoff having his CPA send out false solubility reports to his investors?!

 

direct-unapportioned-taxOh, and one last point I’d like to make here.  So, you have a government who has totally screwed up publicly enough that even the mainstream media can’t ignore it, and so what do the do to truly fix the problem?  They paint every recipient of that $165 million bonus share as some kind of a criminal—even a terrorist if you will—against the sovereignty of this American people.  And to show you just how big and powerful they are, they actually draft a bill which would directly tax all of these financial terrorists with a 90% tax!  Using taxes as a weapon, you say?  How can they do that?  They can’t.  It’s called a direct unapportioned tax, and it’s 100% illegal and completely unconstitutional, for the very same reasons why your present federal income tax is illegal.  You don’t believe that our wonderful U.S. government would commit such an illegal act?  Really?  You just watched them try to do it right in front of your eyes against the AIG bonus recipients! 

 

Of course the government did nothing to preemptively thwart the payment of the bonuses to AIG executives.  That’s because, very much like the ridiculous stimulus bill, they didn’t even bother to comprehend the entire picture of their actions.  This is the same government who overpaid by over $70 billion dollars for the assets it purchased from the companies it bailed out!  Whether or not there was a senator who acknowledged and attempted to keep the bonuses in the contract is beside the point.

 

I say kudos to the AIG Executive who resigned in the New York Times today!  And I don’t care whether or not he does donate any of his money to charity.  Legally, contractually, it’s his money.  The U.S. Government simply bought into a Lion’s Zoo and is now whining when they got bit!  And now they are claiming foul because many of the vital AIG personnel refuse to work under such circumstances.  aig-ceoCan you blame them?  Sure you can’t relate to such a huge bonus in your own life.  I get that.  But it’s what the guy signed on for.  It was part of the reason why he left his previous job to take a position with AIG 11 years ago.  And now he’s being asked to work for free for an undetermined period of time while AIG fixes all of their screw ups and be persecuted by nearly an entire country in the meantime.  Does that sound like a job you’d want to keep?  Heck, when I heard during the live Congressional questioning that the CEO was working for $1 and taking all of the crap from Congress, I would have quit on the spot and told Congress that they can fix their own mess and not use me as a whipping boy.

 

Here’s some wisdom my mother taught me.  “Be very aware of what people say about other people, because they are likely to be saying the same thing about you when you’re not around.”  You’ve seen what the U.S. Government is willing to do when we are looking.  Now, get a clue as to what they are doing when we’re not watching!

swiss-bankHere’s food for thought for you.  Is the Swiss Banking system actually cahoots in with the IRS and our government?  I believe there is sufficient evidence to indicate that their recent buckling to legal maneuvering on the part of the U.S. and their supposed outrage at having to do so, is merely a ruse.  I believe that there is reason to believe that there’s more to these actions of divulging names of their U.S. depositors than simply complying with the premise of a lawsuit.  You decide.

 

So here’s the problem with the U.S. suing the Swiss Banking system to reveal the names of its account holders who may be guilty of tax fraud or tax evasion.  You’ve got at least 2 wrongs that definitely aren’t making up any rights.

 

First of all, it’s a fishing expedition.  None of these individuals have been proven in the U.S. to have committed tax fraud or tax evasion.  And yet without formal indictments the U.S. feels that it has cause to subpoena every American-held account in Switzerland?  No, instead the U.S. is making suppositions that if someone has an overseas account in the Swiss Banking system then they must be committing a crime.  That kind of supposition is AGAINST our legal system and our due process of law. 

 

Additionally, IF the government’s idea of tax fraud or evasion has ANYTHING to do with paying federal income taxes, then that too is illegal on our country’s part as federal income taxes are indeed illegal.  We merely pay them out of fear, submission, and ignorance.  No wonder we see IRS agents training with guns!  I’m sorry.  Someone tell me again why IRS tax collectors need to train with guns?  Hey if it’s for their own self-defense, I’m all for it.  But it’s the IRS who sanctions and REQUIRES such training.  (Man, I’m sure many of you would love to work for a company that requires you to use a firearm instead of penalizing you from even storing one in your car on company property!)  A repo man is not allowed to use a gun to get property back.  Are we supposed to believe that the IRS is a government entity?  Um…it is NOT.  These are U.S. citizens who have been deceived into believing they work for an official government entity and are enforcing some kind of federal law by collecting taxes on our labor—at gun point if necessary!  So why do the IRS have so much authority to spread fear into American citizens?  Oh, yeah…now I get it – because the IRS cannot commit their actions with the strength of truth and the law behind them.  They can only get away with what they do via force, fear, and brutal compulsion.  former-irs-agentsIf you don’t believe a word I’ve said in this regard, check on the testimony of countless former IRS Agents who have been fired and socially skewered for questioning the IRS tax system, unable to find any justification for the federal income tax, who they themselves do NOT pay a federal income tax as a result of their belief that the law is on their side — and join a million of other Americans who do not pay their federal income tax, and who have boldly attempted to get their findings out to the rest of the citizens in the U.S.  One last note on the IRS — after decades of protestors taking this matter to courts of every level, to their IRS supervisors, and to legal mediation, there has yet to be ONE person who can show the LAW which enables the IRS to collect personal income tax.  Even the Supreme Court found that the 16th Amendment did NOT provide any new power or authority to tax than the government had prior to the 16th Amendment.

tax-evasion2Second fly in the ointment.  Tax evasion is not illegal in Switzerland.  And tax fraud has to be proven.  The fact that the Swiss Banking system has collapsed to a law suit by the U.S. government has suspicion written all over it.  The Swiss Banking system generated 36 percent of their income in the U.S. last year.  They contribute to about 20 percent of their economic growth in their own nation every year.  The fact that they would crumble like a sick dog due to a suit filed in a U.S. federal court is very suspicious to me.  Either their nation is crumbling, or ours made a sweet deal with them.  After acquiescing to providing 300 names to the U.S. (not evidence of any wrong-doing, mind you, just names, hence the “fishing expedition theory”) the U.S. turned around and sued for over 52,000 more names!!  Now how much do you want to bet that the U.S. doesn’t even have cases filed for over 52,000 wealthy individuals they suspect of tax fraud or evasion?  Switzerland has no legal justification to accommodate such a request other than bullying and fear or other reprisals.  Peter V. Kunz, head of the business law department at the University of Bern stated, “Switzerland is afraid of fishing expeditions from abroad,” Kunz said.  “It cannot be that just out of curiosity, without any hint of illegality, foreign authorities come to Switzerland and ask for information.”   The ridiculous nature of what is happening is that Switzerland IS allowing individuals to get information simply out of curiosity!

Bank secrecy is literally a cash cow in the Swiss Banking systems.  They could lose at least 50 percent of their depositors if they do not recover from this scandal immediately. 

 

Michigan Senator Carl Levin who oversees the U.S. Senate subcommittee which is investigating United Bank of Switzerland proposed new laws this week to STOP Americans from acting freely with their own money and to prevent them from using offshore financial centers altogether.  (This legislation was previously sponsored by Barack Obama!)  That’s right.  Our own currency and economy is going to hell in a hand basket, and this uppity senator wants to ensure that we all go down with it! At the very least they want to be able to put stiffer taxes on those with offshore accounts and give the Treasury Department the authority to take action against foreign jurisdictions that impede their efforts.

 

URUGUAY/Our government claims that “conduct that actively facilitates tax evasion amounts to a declaration of war by offshore secrecy jurisdictions against honest, hardworking taxpayers.  We’re determined to fight back and end the abuses inflicted on us by those tax havens.”  In my opinion those who have placed some of their assets overseas are merely fighting the war that already exists within our own borders of illegal tax burdens and an economy that is unstable and out of control BECAUSE OF CHOICES WHICH OUR GOVERNMENT HAS MADE…not some act of God.  To me, our government bullying one of our allies in this manner and attempting to eliminate this venue for the income earners of our nation is no different than them attempting to take our firearms away.  I truly believe that they are indeed attempting to give us nothing to fight back with, including our own money.

 

Financial MeltdownNow how is this kind of reach of power even possible across country borders?  Because of the Federal Reserve and its relationship with the World Bank, that’s how.  And here we thought we lived in a republic, when in fact we are being governed by an international banking entity. 

 

This problem will not fix itself folks.  We don’t get to live in a republic if we do not act like free citizens and use our freedom to right wrongs.  Take action.  Start writing and start calling your government “leaders.”

Do the Math: 

A very popular e-mail is making the circuit in the last several days espousing a new theory for what to do regarding the bail outs.  The e-mail is as follows—however, there are some very grave errors in the proposed theory.

I’m against the $85,000,000,000.00 bailout of AIG.  Instead, I’m in favor of giving $85,000,000,000 to America in a We Deserve It Dividend. To make the math simple, let’s assume there are 200,000,000 bona fide adults in the U.S. 

Our population is about 301,000,000 +/- counting every man, woman and child. So 200,000,000 might be a fair stab at adults 18 and up. 
So divide 200 million adults 18+  into $85 billon that equals $425,000.00.
My plan is to give $425,000 to every person 18+ as a We Deserve It Dividend.
Of course, it would NOT be tax free.  So let’s assume a tax rate of 30%.
Every individual 18+ has to pay $127,500.00 in taxes.  That sends $25,500,000,000 right back to Uncle Sam.  But it means that every adult 18+ has $297,500.00 in their pocket.  A husband and wife has $595,000.00.  What would you do with $297,500.00 to $595,000.00 in your family?

  • Pay off your mortgage housing crisis solved

     

     

  • Repay college loans what a great boost to new grads
  • Put away money for college it’ll be there
  • Save in a bank create money to loan to entrepreneurs.
  • Buy a new car create jobs
  • Invest in the market capital drives growth
  • Pay for your parent’s medical insurance health care improves
  • Enable Deadbeat Dads to come clean or else 

Remember this is for every adult U S Citizen 18+  including the folks who lost their jobs at Lehman Brothers and every other company that is cutting back. And of course, for those serving in our Armed Forces.
If we’re going to re-distribute wealth let’s really do it…instead of trickling out a puny $1000.00 ( ‘vote buy’ ) economic incentive.
If we’re going to do an $85 billion bailout, let’s bail out every adult U S Citizen 18+!
As for AIG

  • Liquidate it.  Sell off its parts.
  • Let American General go back to being American General.
  • Sell off the real estate.
  • Let the private sector bargain hunters cut it up and clean it up.

Here’s my rationale. We deserve it and AIG doesn’t.
Sure it’s a crazy idea that can ‘never work.’
But can you imagine the Coast-To-Coast Block Party!
How do you spell Economic Boom?
I trust my fellow adult Americans to know how to use the $85 Billion We Deserve It Dividend more than I do the geniuses at AIG or in Washington DC.
And remember, The Birk plan only really costs $59.5 Billion because $25.5 Billion is returned instantly in taxes to Uncle Sam.

Ok. So here’s the problem.  Many are forwarding this e-mail on to others (including me…*she says sheepishly* without doing the MATH.  The math is not $425,000.  It’s $425 dollars. And after taxes that won’t even pay for mortgage payment in most homes in this nation.  The sorry thing is, and this includes me, is that so many times we as Americans do not demand the appropriate checks and balances necessary to truly be free.  We are constantly subjected to numbers and so-called solutions which are not properly vetted, or disclosed to the American people.  The lawmakers are constantly hiding this financial provision here and there.  Frankly I firmly believe that if we had cause to pass a piece of legislation that laid out a woman’s right to life in the U.S. even after she was subjected to a rape, that some moronic lawmaker would refuse to pass it without sneaking some financial boon to himself or his cronies. 

I fully realize that not bailing out AIG, for example would create an enormous loss of wealth to many individuals who invested in AIG.  Seeing that all over the news would pain be almost as much as witnessing the remains of a terrorist attack.  The fact is, this mismanagement of funds is a terrorist attack on our nation’s backbone, but it’s perpetrated by big-wheeling deal makers who do not have appropriate accountability and oversight.  While the retirement funds would be obliterated, you must understand that we’re already in an “Emporer’s New Clothes” scenario, folks. The retirements of the middle class have already dwindled down to virtually nil thanks to the devaluation of the dollar, inflation–which is orchestrated, and criminal mismanagement of funds.  With us bailing out AIG we are in essence saying, yes, Mr/Ms. American citizen, you made a poor choice in your investment but the rest of the American people are going to atone for that error and pay for the mistake for you—even those who can’t even fathom ever owning a home, let alone an investment account of hundreds of thousands—AND we’re going to let the real perpetrators of the debacle walk or even salvage their big profits in doing so. 

Additionally, even if the numbers were real on this, it would only compound the problem of watering down the value of our currency which the Federal Reserve has already mastered quite well.  Inflation IS a tax manipulated by those in power.  And it’s a hefty one at that. 

Our currency is mismanaged, our taxes are mismanaged, and now when we discover just how badly our so-called backbone of the economy—Wall Street—has mismanaged their jobs, we’re compounding the problem.

Mark my words. This debacle enslaves all middle and lower class tax payers even more harshly than if the true consequences were allowed to play out.  At least then, those responsible would be forced to suffer the results of their actions. As a nation I believe we can suffer through the natural fall-out while being given the opportunity of a wake-up call.   You can’t “repent” of your actions by forcing someone else to “atone” for you. (I believe there’s only one person who’s authorized to do that.) And yet that’s exactly what is being forced upon the American people.

Wall Street SHOULD tumble despite the AIG bailout

Anything other than a “Wall Street tumble” would be a deception on the public. Why?  Because there is no financial benefit for the investors of our nation when the “Fed” bails out another business gone amuck.  It’s a generic band-aid, initiated to continue the perpetration of a century long façade. Let me say this again loud and clear… the Federal Reserve is NOT a government entity. Our government leaders have no say in how it operates, and no jurisdiction over it. So how does it have any authority over the use of YOUR tax dollars??  And yet it was the tax dollars of U.S. citizens pledged for use of the Federal Reserve for this AIG bailout and the so-called $70 billion cash infusion that occurred yesterday.  

I’m having a hard time understanding how so little financial intellect can be present in the minds of our media reporters? They can get heavily involved in what celebrity was caught kissing whom, what crime rate is on the rise, whether or not a woman or a mother is fit to run a big business or serve in a major government position, but they can’t see the asinine proposal of our tax dollars being given to a foreign entity to bail out another big business gone amuck?  

Since when did business failure deserve a reward? Let the consequences happen as they may to these big businesses.  Give the American investors pause for more prudence in their investment decision making.

Why is it that our nation’s leaders are allocating our tax dollars to a non-governmental entity to bailout a company most of us could care less about? Since when does failure to operate a business properly merit the pity and hard-earned dollars of American citizens?   I know of hundreds of business owners who have made mistakes in running their business; and not only does no one come to their aid one iota, but because they are self-employed business owners, even in a crisis they are unable to get access to simple financial benefits such as food stamps or Medicaid (that even illegal immigrants can get) when necessary! The irony is that small and medium sized businesses contribute the largest portion of tax dollars to these programs than even large corporations- yes more than Merrill Lynch and AIG put together!  Do we simply discount or forget that these struggling businesses may have had a wonderful 5 year run previously in which they contributed to the economy by providing honest jobs to dozens of employees, tax dollars, vendor service dollars, etc?

Stop the insanity. Get educated about what’s really going on and then voice your opinion in these matters to the government leaders just as fervently as you would cry for help to save your family, your home, and your freedom.

A Double Whammy!
 
As an American, I feel that it is absolutely irresponsible to not understand how money really works in this nation.  A full comprehension of this topic will actually instill a more prudent behavior in our own financial habits – at least that’s my belief. Such a behavior will lead to less anxiety, stress, and chaos in our lives.
 
For starters, those of you who would mistakenly pipe up that the Canadian dollar is now worth the same as a U.S. dollar as a result of our deficit; you are missing a large chunk of the rest of the story. The fact is our dollar is devalued because there is an abundance of U.S. currency in circulation.  The value of the dollar is directly related to supply and demand.  For instance, remember when cell phones were first sold in our nation, the prices were prohibitive for many. However, now that they are more abundant and commonplace, the prices have lowered to as little as “free” in many instances. 

 It used to be that the Federal Reserve published a report which contained an M3 number. This figure would convey to the public just how much money was actually in circulation.  Mysteriously, the Federal Reserve has elected to no longer provide the public with that figure. Thus their printing presses can continue to roll out currency as they see fit, watering down the value of our dollar.  Our foreign nations who trade heavily with us are not imbecilic economists.  Clearly the only reason to NOT provide such a number is to hide the true value of our currency.   And as such, international trading with us has been subdued.
 
This is Economics 101…(although not likely to be taught as such.) Suppose I was investing in fine art. Wouldn’t it be reasonable for me to know just how many pieces an artist created?  Of course. As it would determine the value of any art I purchased by this artist.  So why would anyone invest in a commodity who’s true value cannot be rightly determined?
 
Be aware that the Federal Reserve is a nation unto itself.  It is NOT part of the U.S. Government.  Sure the Federal Reserve Chairman is appointed by the U.S. president, but are you certain that whom he appoints is of his own choosing?  You keep spouting how we need to eliminate our dependence on foreign oil; how about eliminating our dependence on the foreign nation that rules our currency?  All of the U.S. Presidents who have attempted to stand up to and eliminate this cartel dependence have met with serious demise.  (Kennedy, Reagan for example.)
 
If our nation’s currency can simply be printed up in accordance to the Feds whims, with no checks and balances, then the value of the dollar is questionable.  Thus in my mind it behooves us to incur as little debt as possible so that we remove ourselves from this shell game as much as possible.
 
Why is our budget deficit $407 billion dollars? Because those that play with the money only see it as Monopoly money.  They figure they can simply print more.  “Let’s just call the Federal Reserve and ask them to loan us more money.”  Where does this money come from? A check? Where is the money that backs up the check?  It’s not money, it’s a printing press.  Unfortunately, it’s REAL hours we work for every year through the month of May to pay for our nation’s REAL debt.  That debt is paid for by the sweat of our brows.  Our federal income taxes do not go for road improvements, social security, or Medicaid. It all goes to pay the INTEREST on the debt that our nation’s “leaders” have imposed upon us.  I have no offense in paying for the services that I require.  But unfortunately I’m not receiving the benefit of those services.  I cannot count on Social Security when I need to retire, neither can 80+% of all retirement-aged Americans.  I could go on and on here with the façade of services we’ve been led to believe our tax dollars pay for, but the bottom line is we’ve had very little say in what our tax dollars pay buy, or how they enslave us.   Now that’s what I call “taxation without representation.”  And not only are we being arduously taxed, but those dollars with which we pay our taxes are being destabilized dramatically.  A Double Whammy!


So here’s my solution, as a patriotic American I say let’s be proud to be American and let’s take advantage of the freedoms that we still have in this country.  This doesn’t mean we have to like what they do with our financial matters, but fortunately they don’t have ultimate control. This nation was built on the backs of visionary entrepreneurs and it’s future lies in the hands of those same visionary, determined hearts.  I feel like so many of us get so tired keeping up with our business and keeping our heads above water that we forget that we are very powerful in determining our outcome.  So learn what game you’re really playing in, and learn how to leverage your entrepreneurial inclinations to maximize your prosperity so you don’t need their credit.
