Do We Really Know Who We Are?

As we approach this mythical date of December 21st, 2012, we are all at least giving a few moments of thought to the key question. “What is going to happen?”  There is a lot of both positive and negative information and disinformation floating in the media and on the internet.  We are collectively all aware of the Mayan Calendar, and we have been overexposed to doomsday and end of the world scenarios recently in movies and television programming.  We have preppers getting ready, preachers warning, psychics predicting, channelers channeling, and governments denying there is anything related to a seminal event on December 21st, 2012. However, every major ancient culture pointed to this time.

All around us we are witnessing events that are real that give us great concern and more than a little apprehension. More frequent and larger earthquakes, tsunamis, storms, and civil unrest, so instinctively we are aware that changes are occurring. So is it the end approaching or nothing at all?

I will play a little Abe Lincoln here. I will tell a personal story and maybe you will understand the point of it.  My grandfather was a very spiritual guy, he was a minister by trade, but to me he was a mystical wise old man.  When he was in his 80s, he contracted cancer and back in those days, before chemo and radiation, surgical removal was the standard practice, “hoping to get all the cancer out of the body”.  As a consequence of his type of bone cancer, he had both arms amputated. I remember seeing my grandfather after his right arm and shoulder was removed. He didn’t seem bothered or upset with his circumstance.  He would say it was all for him to experience.

When he had his left arm and shoulder removed, I was devastated and my visit with him (I was about 12 at the time) I broke down sobbing when I saw him.  He, however, just gave me that same peaceful smile and motioned with his head for me to come and sit by him.  He said that he wanted me to be at peace and he would tell me the most important story of my life. He would tell me the story of One. This is his story.

“In the beginning there was nothing but the void, and for whatever reason Grandfather perceived himself and he was. He was all that there was and there was nothing else but him. The void wanted to return to the harmony of the uninterrupted void, but Grandfather resisted and began to expand by creating more of himself.   And so it was, so it is, so it will ever be. At some point Grandfather realized that he was all that there was and while he could know himself, he could not experience himself. So Grandfather created us. And so it was and so it is, and so it shall ever be. However, never ever forget there really is only one of us.”

That little story has been an infinite onion for me, peeling layer by endless layers of meaning from it all of my life.

So what will happen on December 22nd, 2012?  I suspect we will wake to a day that appears like any other day.  However it will also be the beginning of us remembering who we really are. We are beginning to reclaim our personal sovereignty. So as we approach this mythical date, I suggest we take a breath, begin to act in every situation without fear and with confidence, love and bliss.  Our future is really just a simple choice collectively to live in love or live in fear.  More and more of us are simply not “buying” the fear peddlers any longer.

So I simply ask you, “who are you really?”  Ask yourself that important question on December 21st, 2012. You might get a very surprising answer.  See you on the other side.

Are the Elections Just an Illusion?

As we are being bombarded daily will all of the political rhetoric, debates, pundits’ analysis, and the never ending attack ads, and not just in America, but most recently in Venezuela, Greece, and soon in France and the UK, the world’s economy is continuing to implode on the middle class and the top 1% just get more wealthy daily.

Rothschild’s 1838 bankers’ manifesto has been realized: “Let me issue and control a Nation’s money and I care not who makes its laws.”  To those in the 45-50% who support those candidates that are the shills for the elite and preach the dignity of self reliance and the evil of social programs, I think you should WAKE UP.  The ONLY difference between you and the folks recently identified as the 47% by Romney is you are the last to be enslaved.

I wish that this belief wasn’t a reality, but it is and has been for the last 250 years.  The difference is the planned “final push” of the oligarchy to lock it all up is now underway.  Oh, you say, just another socialistic do-gooder rambling on.  Really?  I am neither. Consider this statement divulged almost 200 years ago by Mayer Amschel Bauer Rothschild:

“The few who can understand the system will be either so interested in its profits, or so dependent on its favours, that there will be no opposition from that class, while, on the other hand, that great body of people, mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that Capital derives from the system, will bear its burden without complaint and, perhaps, without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests.”

And that’s precisely how the “system” has been operating ever since.

Just because you in the $250,000 and above salary bracket and may not be a paycheck away from disaster does not mean you are any less a victim than those who are receiving welfare or food stamps, because the fact is you may be even more vulnerable.

If the capital systems of the world collapse, or should I say when they collapse, who really is going to lose the most, YOU.  In addition, when after the collapse, the angry hungry mobs go looking for revenge, who is going to be the cannon fodder for the elite, YOU.

This election in the US is not going to be the “most important” in our lifetime because neither side is really addressing the problems in our capital systems, economy, or social structure.  There just isn’t an honest discussion of the real problems and NO discussion of the collective actions we must take to solve these problems.

What we really need is to address the REAL issues of education, infrastructure, health care and social security in a meaningful manner.  It isn’t like there are not working models we could learn from as we try and move forward.  Sweden, Denmark, Norway are excellent examples.  Iceland’s recent actions demonstrate that even when it is the worst situation, recovery is possible if the people have the collective will to resolve the issues and deal with the criminals that got them in the fix in the first place.

So for all you who think you doing pretty good, or those of you who are fundamentalists, or you who are “undecided”, THINK, really think hard and as you do, think of your children and grandchildren.  Those who are the top taking more and more each day are not going to stop taking and the truth is THEY represent ¼ of 1%, and you aren’t in the club.  You are just the last group they are going to take from.

Historically, civilizations are judged by their achievements and the status of the least of its citizens, not the elites of that society.  What have the achievements of our current civilization been in the last 50 years? Can you honestly say we have taken care of all of our citizens? Think about it, really think for yourself about it.

Things May Not Be What They Seem To Be

Millions of Americans have wondered why the banksters have not been criminally charged for their obvious illegal activities that have destroyed the global economy, devastated the lives of hundreds of millions of people globally, and brought countries to their knees economically.  We are cynical that any justice will prevail and the economic ship will be righted.  We feel our governmental representatives have been bought and all are entirely controlled by the financial cabal.  Certainly when you see big banks admitting to money-laundering, bid rigging, fraud, and market rigging, but still no one individual is being charged with criminal activity, it is easy to feel absolutely helpless.

In the past two years alone, these criminals have paid more than $8 Billion dollars in fines globally and stipulated their guilt, but it seems no one is going to jail.  This is even more disheartening when we learn that those who should be enforcing the law are rolling over like lap dogs such as this news from the Wall Street Journal on 10 August:

Source: Wall Street Journal

“After a yearlong investigation, the Justice Department said Thursday that it won’t bring charges against Goldman Sachs Group Inc. or any of its employees for financial fraud related to the mortgage crisis.

In a statement, the Justice Department said “the burden of proof” couldn’t be met to prosecute Goldman criminally based on claims made in an extensive report prepared by a U.S. Senate panel that investigated the financial crisis.

“Based on the law and evidence as they exist at this time, there is not a viable basis to bring a criminal prosecution with respect to Goldman Sachs or its employees in regard to the allegations set forth in the report,” the statement read. The Justice Department reserved the right to bring charges in the future if new evidence emerges. In a statement Thursday, Goldman said: “We are pleased that this matter is behind us.”

It does seem to be an insult to our intelligence and common sense.  However, we must remember who controls the media, as well as the political system.  We also must be patient.  There are arrests happening globally and they are significant.  From these arrests, much information will surface that will compel even those who are so compromised to act or be grossly negligent and criminally involved themselves.  Am I right Eric?

There are many brave and conscientious men and women risking their lives quite literally on a global basis to do the right thing.  Here are just a few examples:

7/2/12: Gary Foster: Former VP of Citigroup Sentenced to 97 Month in Prison for Embezzlement – (Source: FBI) — Gary Foster, a former vice president in Citigroup, Inc.’s treasury finance department, was sentenced to 97 months’ imprisonment today on a conviction for bank fraud arising from his embezzlement of more than $22 million from Citigroup. Foster embezzled by first transferring money to Citigroup’s cash account and then wiring it to his personal bank account at another bank. Foster used the money to buy real estate and luxury automobiles, including a Ferrari and a Maserati. In total, the value of the seized and restrained property is estimated to be approximately $14 million.

7/6/2012: Ex-Bankas Snoras Owners Arrested Again in U.K. Over Fraud Claims – Bankas Snoras AB’s former owners were arrested again in London today on expanded claims they siphoned at least 1.7 billion litas ($609.5 million) from the failed Lithuanian lender to finance luxurious lifestyles. Russian banker Vladimir Antonov and his business partner Raimondas Baranauskas, who were detained in November and are fighting extradition to Lithuania, were arrested a second time after authorities probing the bank’s collapse in the Baltic country issued another European arrest warrant containing new allegations, John Hardy, a lawyer for the prosecution, said at a scheduled hearing today in London’s Westminster Magistrates Court.

7/10/12: Dozens arrested in loan fraud scheme with victims in U.S, Canada – (Reuters) – Dozens of people were charged in what federal authorities on Tuesday called a highly sophisticated loan fraud scheme that robbed $2.7 million from at least 2,000 victims with poor credit histories in Canada and the United States. Would-be borrowers were lured to websites of 67 fictitious businesses with names similar to well-known lenders such as “Countrywide Funding,” which sounds similar to the legitimate Countrywide Financial Corp., and “Admiral Financial Services,” which mirrors Admiral Financial Corp., authorities said. They were approved for loans in exchange for security deposits ranging from a few hundred dollars to several thousand dollars – to be sent in advance of the flow of borrowed cash that never arrived.

7/12/12: DOJ: Former Bank of the Commonwealth Executives Arrested for Alleged Fraud – Former executives and favored borrowers at the failed Bank of the Commonweath have been arrested and charged with masking nonperforming assets for their own benefit, in a scheme that contributed to the Virginia bank’s 2011 collapse, the Justice Department said.

7/18/12: Ex-UBS France Employee Charged in Tax Inquiry After Raids – A judge leading a tax-fraud investigation concerning UBS AG’s French unit has charged a second person with aiding in illicit marketing and money laundering. UBS avoided prosecution in the U.S. in 2009 by paying $780 million, admitting it helped thousands of Americans evade taxes and turning over the names of 250 American clients to authorities. UBS later revealed another 4,450 accounts held by clients in the country.

7/19/12: Eleven Charged, Arrests Made In $15 Million Mortgage Fraud Scheme – CAMDEN, N.J. – Eleven individuals from five states are charged in New Jersey for their alleged roles in a $15 million mortgage fraud scam that used phony documents and “straw buyers” to make illegal profits on overbuilt condos, including a defendant who attempted to murder a witness to the scheme, New Jersey U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman announced.

7/20/12: SJ Bank Manager, Husband Bilk Victim of $1.1 M– A JP Morgan Chase bank manager and her husband were convicted Thursday of scamming a 97-year-old man out of $1.1 million in life savings, according to the Santa Clara County District Attorney. Prosecutors said that bank manager Christina Bray, 30, befriended the elderly banking client and pretended to manage his financial affairs. Instead, prosecutors said, Bray and her husband, Jimmy Bray, 39, of San Jose, spent the victim’s money on  luxury cars and liposuction. The couple pleaded guilty to several counts of felony elder theft.

7/23/12: Irish banker McAteer arrested by Anglo probe fraud squad officers – Willie McAteer is set to become the first banker prosecuted over the collapse of the toxic Anglo Irish Bank in 2008-2009. McAteer, an executive in the former rogue lender, is due in court in Ireland on fraud charges. Anglo’s former finance director was arrested this morning by fraud squad officers investigating financial irregularities at the bust bank.

7/24/12: Anglo Irish Bank’s ex-CEO arrested for fraud – DUBLIN – Fraud detectives arrested the former chief executive of Anglo Irish Bank and charged him Tuesday over a conspiracy to hide colossal losses at the bank that brought the nation to the brink of bankruptcy. Forensic accountants found that Anglo provided secret loans to 16 insiders on condition they used the €1.1 billion ($1.35 billion) to buy Anglo stock.

7/26/12: FL Title Agency Owner Sentenced for Mortgage Fraud Scheme – (Source: FBI) JACKSONVILLE, FL—U.S. Attorney Robert E. O’Neill announces that U.S. District Judge Henry Lee Adams, Jr. today sentenced Cynthia Darlene Strickland (46, Jacksonville) to 18 months in federal prison for bank fraud related to a mortgage fraud scheme. As part of the sentence, the court ordered Strickland to pay restitution to victims in the amount of $531,356. The court also entered a judgment against Strickland for $178,625, which was the amount of money she received as a result of the scheme. Strickland pled guilty.

7/27/12:TD bank denies wrongdoing after court convicts U.S. fraudster in $7B Ponzi scheme– Robert Allen Stanford was the stereotype of a Texas tycoon, oozing the extravagance billions of dollars buys: a fleet of private jets, yachts and helicopters; mansions, castles and a private island; mixing with celebrities and world despots; being knighted and hosting a world sports tournament where he put up the US$20-million purse. At the height of his outsized life, however, his banking empire collapsed and, last month, a U.S. court exposed his US$7-billion fraud, sentencing the 63-year-old to 110 years in prison. Now, attention is turning to the role a respected Canadian bank may have played in allowing Stanford to strip 21,000 investors of their savings.

7/28/12: UK – Six Sentenced for Insider Trading – UBS and JPMorgan print rooms. One of six individuals sentenced on Friday to a total of 16 years in prison for taking part in an insider trading ring has said the JP Morgan Cazenove print room manager allegedly at the heart of the conspiracy avoided prosecutors by fleeing to Northern Cyprus. Ersin Mustafa, a contractor for Xerox running the secure print room in JP Morgan, was accused of playing a pivotal role in sourcing confidential documents from the bank and from UBS where his brother Ali Mustafa worked – his role also involving the confidential printing of market-sensitive documents, many of them linked to corporate takeover plans.

7/30/12: Iran sentences 4 to death in $2.6B fraud case – TEHRAN, Iran — An Iranian court has sentenced four people to death and given two more life sentences on charges linked to a $2.6 billion bank fraud described as the biggest financial scam in the country’s history, an official said Monday. The trial, which began in February, involved some of the country’s largest financial institutions and raised uncomfortable questions about corruption at senior levels in Iran’s tightly controlled economy.

8/1/12: Former UBS bankers cheated cities by rigging bond bids: U.S. – Three former UBS executives helped deceive U.S. cities and towns by operating a scheme to rig bids to invest municipal bond proceeds, a federal prosecutor said on Monday at the start of the bankers’ criminal trial in New York. Peter Ghavami, Gary Heinz and Michael Welty were charged in 2010 by the U.S. Department of Justice as part of its broad investigation of the $3.7 trillion U.S. municipal bond market. The probe has focused on rooting out schemes to fix prices and rig bids on bond transactions, and has ensnared some of the world’s largest banks. The three men “steered financial contracts to their friends in exchange for kickbacks and other favors.

8/2/12: AmeriFirst Securities Fraud Case Lands Sentence for Seven Defendants – (Source: FBI) DALLAS—The final sentencing was held today in the massive AmeriFirst securities fraud case, prosecuted in the Northern District of Texas, that has resulted in a total of seven felony convictions and prison sentences up to 25 years, announced U.S. Attorney Sarah R. Saldaña of the Northern District of Texas. Today, John Porter Priest was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Barbara M. G. Lynn to one year in federal prison. Priest, 43, of Ocala, Florida, was sentenced by Judge Lynn to one year in federal prison and ordered to pay $4,742,946 in restitution. He pleaded guilty in September 2010 to one count of securities fraud based on his role in the Secured Capital Trust scheme.

These are just a few of the most outstanding actions.  So, while the controlled MSM media is not now currently reporting these activities, they are going on.  From our close sources, this is but the tip of the iceberg, as a lot of these who were arrested are singing loudly and turning over evidence that will start to bring pressure to those on top of the pyramids.

What we should be doing is demanding from our MSM the reasons why they are not reporting these facts and more importantly why there is a lack of good old fashion investigative journalism.  Where is 60 Minutes when you need them?  We should also put pressure on the White House and DOJ to step up their investigations and begin to take actions that they could take, elections be damned.  The more we push and the louder we speak, the more action will have to be taken.  If you were a victim of the mortgage scams, or you lost half your retirement to these banksters, speak up, take the time to write an email or letter demanding more action.  It really is up to us to be informed and outraged.  This isn’t a red or blue issue, it is a green issue and if we don’t take these actions, we will soon be owned slaves.  Our power is also at the ballot box with an informed vote.  Let’s not continue to send lapdogs back to DC.  Let’s not buy into the rhetoric from both sides and let’s demand action.

Revolution is Coming..But Let’s Do It Right This Time!

Since April of 2009, I have been doing my best to expose the criminal nature of our greedy banksters, traders, and politicians that have been enriching themselves at the cost of the world’s entire economy and off the backs of us who are the real economic engines in society.  Finally, we are beginning to see some actions to finally bring these slugs to justice.

During the next few months many things are going to come to light that will outrage us and we will want to revolt in sometimes violent ways when we understand the level of enslavement we have been subjected to and what the plans of the uber-elite were in relation to population reduction, war making, and false flag operations of all kinds.

We have seen how these same elites have geared up our police forces and armies everywhere to deal with what they anticipate is our violent reaction to the revelation of the truth of what is really going on in relationship to their plans to accomplish this final step in their enslavement plans.

However, we must not fall into this trap as we have in centuries past, as we will only wind up with a false and temporary victory and would soon return to the same conditions that we now find ourselves.

Anger, revenge, violence, and armed revolt are lower aspects of ourselves that cling onto us as if they need a host body to survive, and it is us, in our weaker states, our weaker moments that provide these aspects of ourselves the energy that fuels their prolonged survival. We do not need these lower aspects of ourselves to learn from them any longer, as we have reached a point where their lower vibrations now only serve to weigh us down and keep us bogged down in a lower dimensional state than the dimensional state that now fits us more suitably.

When I saw the rebels in Syria summarily execute those Assad soldiers, I had to shed a tear realizing that although the rebel cause in Syria is a just cause, they had just become the same people that they were so justly resisting.

If there is anything true about 2012 and the New AGE it is we are being called now back to our higher state, our higher self, and unwanted and unneeded aspects of our lower dimensional journey are not invited, are not called, are not necessary any longer for us as a learning tool and to measure ourselves on our progress and our development.

We need to discuss where there is room for improvement in the ways in which we communicate with each other. This is a very important subject, and this is one area of ourselves and of our lives that needs to be corrected, upgraded, raised to higher dimensional levels and standards. Far too often we read negative comments, insults and defamation fired upon one another throughout our MSM and online communities, and I say to you enough of this already, this has gone on too long now. We need to find ways for all of us to better communicate with each other and we need to look harder to find more ways to effectively, politely and appropriately communicate with each other and respond to those who have led personal attacks on us and our choices and points of view.

Please think about this each and every time you feel emotions rising within you that are causing you to lash out at others sometimes rather violently, certainly disrespectfully, many times insultingly, often times hurtful and always unproductive. Please choose your words and your methods of delivery a little more carefully, a little more kindly, a little more respectfully, less attacking, less opinionated, less stubbornly, as none of us has all the answers and there are always possibilities that may hold truth in the end that may surprise us today. Remember, we are always learning and growing, and if this is true, then each and every one of us today does not know something we may know tomorrow.

In light of this, how can we be so sure that so much of what we claim to be fact and force upon another is truth or will be our truth come tomorrow?  We cannot know this, for none of us knows this. This is why we are here in this universe, to learn from these experiences and to grow from the learning of these lessons. This is what it is all about. So to believe so convincingly that our perspective, our point of view is the only correct interpretation of anything is certainly unproductive and an aspect of us that needs to be focused upon and released, as it is not an aspect of ourselves that is welcomed into the higher dimensions.

There are so many more polite and respectful ways to reply to others, no matter what it is they are saying to you, whether they are insulting you, threatening you, or simply treating you disrespectfully and impolitely.

With that said, let’s look at what is really coming to light and the progress that is already underway.

Preface:  Not all banks are criminal enterprises.  The wrongdoing of a particular bank cannot be attributed to other banks without proof.  But – as documented below – many of the biggest banks have engaged in unimaginably bad behavior.

Here are just some of the improprieties by big banks:

  • Engaging in mafia-style bid-rigging fraud against local governments. See thisthis and this
  • Shaving money off of virtually every pension transaction they handled over the course of decades, stealing collectively billions of dollars from pensions worldwide. Details hereherehereherehere,herehereherehereherehere and here
  • Pledging the same mortgage multiple times to different buyers. See thisthisthisthis and this. This would be like selling your car, and collecting money from 10 different buyers for the same car
  • Committing massive fraud in an $800 trillion dollar market which affects everything from mortgages, student loans, small business loans and city financing
  • Pushing investments which they knew were terrible, and then betting against the same investments to make money for themselves. See thisthisthisthis and this
  • Engaging in unlawful “Wash Trades” to manipulate asset prices. See thisthis and this
  • Participating in various Ponzi schemes. See thisthis and this
  • Bribing and bullying ratings agencies to inflate ratings on their risky investments

The executives of the big banks invariably pretend that the hanky-panky was only committed by a couple of low-level rogue employees. But studies show that most of the fraud is committed by management.

We need to ensure these activities do not continue and we need to be determined to bring all of those who would perpetrate such atrocities on us be brought to justice.  We cannot and should tolerate this sociopathic behavior in our positions of economic or political hierarchy.  However, this should be accomplished by persistent public awareness , peaceful protest, and quiet but persistent resolve to educate ourselves.  However, those who call for armed revolts or militia actions should be ignored.  Our most effective weapons are our wallets and our votes.  Indeed, these are the only weapons we have total control of in our lives.

Be encouraged, be hopeful and optimistic, because indeed progress is being achieved, but do so in a calm and confident determination that enough is enough.  Enjoy this brief video I found on YouTube.

Just the Facts of Where We Really Are, For Your Political Consideration

In the previous article, I proposed that for this election cycle we vote as patriots instead of party affiliation.  I did so because I honestly believe we are dangerously close to being totally enslaved economically if we don’t wake up right now.  I am not the only informed individual who believes this.  A very good read is a three part series in Economy called Who Destroyed the Middle Class.  It is a must read for everyone.

No rhetoric, just facts are important here.  The political jabber is to distract us, but facts paint the “truth” of reality.  So I am presenting just the facts here for your consideration.  Anyone who puts all these pieces of the puzzle together can figure for themselves what is really going on.  I am hoping that somehow we actually “participate” from a point of knowledge and NOT political BS and propaganda.

Think about these things when you go to the polls:

  • Forty-six million Americans (one in seven) are on food stamps.
  • One in seven is unemployed or underemployed.
  • The percentage of those out of work defined as long-term unemployed is the highest (42%) since the Great Depression.
  • 54% of college graduates younger than 25 are unemployed or underemployed.
  • 47% of Americans receive some form of government assistance.
  • Employment-to-population ratio for 25- to 54-year-olds is now 75.7%, lower than when the recession “ended” in June 2009.
  • There are 7.7 million fewer full-time workers now than before the recession, and 3.3 million more part-time workers.
  • Eight million people have left the labor force since the recession “ended” — adding those back in would put the unemployment rate at 12% instead of 8.2%.
  • The number of unemployed looking for work for at least 27 weeks jumped 310,000 in May, the sharpest increase in a year.
  • Over 7.5 million homes have been foreclosed upon by the Wall Street bankers since 2008.
  • The National Debt has increased by $5.7 trillion (57% increase) since September 2008, while real GDP has risen by $305 billion (2.3% increase) since the 3rd quarter of 2008.
  • Interest income paid to senior citizens and savers has declined by $400 billion (29% decline) since September of 2008 due to Ben Bernanke’s ZIRP.
  • Government transfer payments have risen by $500 billion (32% increase) since September 2008, while private industry wages have risen by $200 billion (4.7% increase).
  • The price of a gallon of gas has risen from $1.70 in December 2008 to $3.53 today.
  • Food prices have risen by 7% to 10% since late 2008, even using the falsified BLS data. A true assessment by anyone who actually goes to a grocery store (not Bernanke – his maid does the shopping) would be a 10% to 20% increase.

 

What these facts mean translates DIRECTLY to you.  No one is UNAFFECTED by these realities.  I am sure anyone of you would not tolerate a thieve coming into your house and stealing your money, but that is EXACTLY what is going on here!  How long do we sleep or apathetically go about our daily routines telling ourselves “this doesn’t concern me” or “there is nothing I can do, the political process is so corrupt.” This simply is not true. Especially those of you who are 18-34, you must wake up and step up to protect yourselves.  That is not a dramatic statement, it is fact.

I know you like pictures and graphs, so here are a few to consider:

  And this is when college debt now exceeds credit card debt and the interest on that debt is going to double.  This is how you define “working for the company store.”

or this:

I think we understand and more importantly felt it, and here is where it is all going:

The important part of this graph is the number of Americans living on $25,000 or less.  Get it.

George Carlin, the hip comedian of the 70’s and 80s said this in 1979! Now we should call him prophet.

George Carlin on “The System” in 1979!

“Politicians are put there to give you that idea that you have freedom of choice. You don’t. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land, they own and control the corporations, and they’ve long since bought and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the State Houses, and the City Halls. They’ve got the judges in their back pockets. And they own all the big media companies so they control just about all the news and information you get to hear. They’ve got you by the balls.

They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want; they want more for themselves and less for everybody else. But I’ll tell you what they don’t want—they don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well informed, well educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them. That’s against their interest. You know something, they don’t want people that are smart enough to sit around their kitchen table and figure out how badly they’re getting fucked by a system that threw them overboard 30 fucking years ago. They don’t want that, you know what they want?

They want obedient workers, obedient workers. People who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork and just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the reduced benefits, the end of overtime and the vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it. The table is tilted folks, the game is rigged. Nobody seems to notice, nobody seems to care. Good honest hard working people, white collar, blue collar, it doesn’t matter what color shirt you have on. Because the owners of this country know the truth, it’s called the American Dream, because you have to be asleep to believe it.”

I think by just reporting the facts that we all can agree we are being robbed and screwed.  We are becoming the obedient slaves desired by the power elite.  I think we need to push back and do so within the system of democracy and political process that is in place and so carefully constructed by our forefathers.  Let’s get the party started.

I know there are 1000’s of unemployed and under-employed lawyers out there.  It is time you step up and lead the way.  Let’s start at the top of the financial elite.  The SEC has levied hundreds of millions of dollars in fines over the last three or four years for CRIMINAL behavior within the major banking and investing firms, but NOT one person has gone to jail.  How can that be?  Criminal behavior means there were SPECIFIC criminals.  Criminals should go to jail, especially repeat offenders. Let’s get to the reality of that.  If corporations are people and therefore can be considered “a person” under the law, then corporations that have been convicted of criminal activity should be banned from receiving any type of federal benefits including bailouts and participating in the Federal Reserve System.  That would be a good start.

While the courts have ruled that PACS are people and therefore they are free to contribute unlimited amounts of money to politicians, then they should not be considered TAX free organizations.  They should be taxed just like everyone else. Let’s demand that be the case.  I am sure we could get a few of the IRS bulldogs that would love getting that done.

Surely there are some bright young folks out there that can figure out how to start these legal proceedings.  Remember the story of Ghandi and the salt. We have to start somewhere and it must be passive resistance and peaceful protest, but it must start right now.

This is Not the Time to be a Democrat or a Republican. It is Time to be a Patriot

There is one thing I think we can all agree on; that private corporations and bankers have usurped our democratic processes everywhere in the free world.  Whether it is the events unfolding in Egypt, or the events within the EU in relationship to Greece, Spain, and Italy, or the current situation of the Congress in the US, it is all the same process and plan unfolding, where the banking and transnational corporate interests are basically running roughshod over the will of the people and the democratic process. Surely we all can agree on this reality.

So my question is; “why are we still thinking like democrats and republicans, socialists or conservatives?”  It seems to me that thinking in such a manner really locks us all into the game plan of those who believe they are our masters.  They think they know best and we are incapable of making the most important decisions of our lives and we do not perceive the ruse.  After all, they will be benevolent slave masters. Are you really now ready to accept this abhorable reality?

Several events in our history of the last 100 years especially point to this “Plan” moving forward in spite of the will of the people.  If one studies the REAL history of WWII, or the creation of Israel, or the wars in North Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, and continuing conflict in Afghanistan, one would clearly understand it was all about sovereign governments becoming indebted to those who financed the war efforts.  The recent Citizens United ruling by the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) was as in your face as it gets when it comes to eliminating your role in your government.

Fascism was defined by President Franklin Roosevelt:

“The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it comes stronger than their democratic state itself. That, in its essence, is fascism – ownership of government by an individual, by a group.”

President Eisenhower warned us of the danger and the power being grabbed by the military-industrial complex.  President Kennedy proposed taking back control of the printing of money from the Fed and we know that outcome.

This is not a situation unique to the US as we can so clearly see in the EU right now.  Yet politically we remain divided by rhetoric of individuals who are in fact acting together for the same plan.  It continues to amaze me to see people that believe they “belong” to one group or the other, but are in fact supporting efforts that are clearly not in their best interests.  Here’s a revelation, you do not belong to these groups as a participant, instead you are simply “owned” and are being herded into compliance by your ignorance of the truth.

What is the basis for making such a claim?  First, just follow the money. Anyone who does doesn’t require much time to come to the same conclusions.  Secondly, when we collectively and by an overwhelming majority (83%) lack faith in our political process, we KNOW we are in deep trouble as the collective people of the planet when it comes to how we are going to be governed.

The election this year in the US is probably the most important election in the history of the Union and as much as the MSM and both political parties want us to believe it is about Liberal vs: Conservative approach to government, it is not anything like that.  It is about finalizing Corporate and Banking control over the largest and most resourceful country in the world.  It is the final domino.

What can we do, if it so well integrated already?  Everyone knows “big money” controls the political process, right?  Nothing could be further from the truth and the desperate efforts we are witnessing to suppress voters rights in the major swing states are absolute proof of the power of our INFORMED vote.

Do not misunderstand this as some political article favoring Democrats or Republicans, as I can assure you it is not the case.  What I am saying is we all should start thinking about voting as patriots.  That we make demands of those who are incumbents and up for re-election or those running for the first time to take actions to end this hostage situation the banks have over our government and more importantly our treasuries.  We should demand anyone who is elected must secure the welfare of our elderly, our schools, and our infrastructure.  That we demand anyone who is elected to represent us will declare no allegiance to special interests or if they openly express those allegiances, then they will recues themselves from voting when those interests could benefit from their vote.

There is one thing I know for sure and that is there are a lot of Democrats and Republicans out there that are first and foremost Americans.  They truly want what is best for the country.  In fact, they are the majority.  So I say to these good people, THINK for yourselves and don’t accept any given party position that in your gut, you know it is wrong.  Be vocal at conventions, meetings, or debates.  Let all the candidates know that before we are Democrats or Republicans, we are patriots.

I guess another way of putting it is to think about all the wonderful young men and women who put their lives on the line for us every day.  We thank them for their service, but do we honor them by doing our patriotic duty at the ballot box?

It’s time to step up to our individual duties to maintain the freedom we have enjoyed for so long. I have complete trust in who we are collectively.  I am sure if we all take this responsibility seriously and fully participate in the democratic process, we can repair and restore this great nation and once again we can be a beacon to all those peoples of the world who look to us to shine the light of democracy into the halls of darkness, fascism, and power seeking greed in world.  Are we up to the task?

Facts, Big Questions, and What It All May Mean

Facts, Big Questions, and What It All May Mean

As any frequent reader of this site knows, I like to deal in facts and not crazy conspiracy theories.  If you closely review the articles I have written since 2009, you will see that they mainly focused on the financial crisis and current changes in climate, seismic activity, and solar activity.  On the surface they seem unrelated, but in fact I have compiled enough data and articles that can now be checked in retrospect that have been both accurate in fact and forecast.

Do I have a crystal ball? No. Am I a psychic? No. Am I some agent or secret whistleblower from one of the alphabet agencies? No. Am I some disinformation specialist? No, I am none of these things, nor have I made any extra-ordinary claims to anything remotely associated with those groups.  I am simply a well travelled and well read individual who is trying to understand the nature of who we are, where we are in the universe, and what may lie in our immediate future.

Until now I have also tried to avoid being “dragged” in any one specific set of theories about 2012.  For example, I do not believe that December 21st, 2012 is any temporal marker signifying the end of the world and I maintain that if you have studied the ancient writings as closely as I have, whether it be Mayan, Sumerian, Egyptian, or indigenous histories, such as the Hopi’s or Lakota’s, they all agree that while this time marks the end of an epoch, it is NOT the end of the world.  These are facts.

However, an end of an epoch does have some significant changes associated with them.  If you are a Christian, for example, the Great Flood and the story of Noah certainly had significant changes associated with God’s desire to “reset” the path of man.  The evidence of the Great Flood is also very much a fact based on archeological and geological evidence.  The same could be said about the great Ice Age events that have been experienced on the earth.

The “BIG” question right now is are we poised for another similar big event and if so what is it really?  In order to look at this as rationally as we can, we first must be very observant of the world and events around us and then see if we can determine any facts that would suggest one way or another that we might be on the event horizon of “something” significant.  I have avoided writing specifically about this until now, even though I have been studying this very question for over thirty years.  But now, in order to see if I can elicit some truths for us all to understand, I must present what I know because there are just too many compelling questions, activities by our governments and the uber-elite to ignore it any further.

First, I assume I know nothing.  Secondly, I am going to assume that we as the general global public know very little.  Thirdly, I am going to assume that maybe no one knows anything for sure.  However, especially within the last 24 months, several events and facts have surfaced that may suggest that a whole lot of “somebodies” know something about very near future events and it behooves us all to seek answers to activities that on the surface do not seem associated but maybe they are all part of the puzzle.  I encourage everyone who reads this to do their validation and if they reach the same conclusions I have, we need to act in concert to get the answers to the questions I am going to raise in this article. Your life or your ability to survive may count on it.

Question #1 – What has NASA so abruptly ended the manned space program after an investment of nearly 50 years and several trillion dollars?

Question #2 – Why have the US Air Force Space Command Space Weather Group issued such dire warnings about this particular active solar cycle, especially being specific from late 2012 to the spring of 2013?  What is different than the previous cycles and how do they KNOW it is different?

Question #3 – Why did NASA sent an unmanned shuttle into space for over 460 days and never once mention what the mission of that unmanned shuttle was, other to say it was to prove we could launch and retrieve an unmanned space vehicle?

Question #4 – Why has the world not responded to the Fukishima disaster more rigorously and allowed the event to continue as it is?  Why hasn’t the US responded more vigorously to the impending impact of the Japanese tsunami debris that is going to imminently impact the West Coast?

Question #5- Why haven’t world governments more actively intervened in the global financial disaster and have allowed this meltdown to continue unabated for 4 years?

Question #6 – Why are the Department of Homeland Security and the US Army preparing for some eminent huge disruption of civil order in the US? This includes most recently disaster drills of huge scales, FEMA Camps, and the recent purchase of millions of small arms weapons and ammunition.

Question #7 – Why has there been a significant increase of a particular type of “UFO” sightings involving multiple orange orbs witnessed by nearly 30 million people within the last three years, and why is our governments silent on the phenomena?

Question #8 – Why did Norway “seal” the seed vault at the end of 2011 and more importantly why did they invite the UN to inspect the site before they sealed it?

Question #9 – Why have the US, Russia, and China invested more in Deep Underground Military Bases (DUMBS) in the last three years than at any other time in history, when on the face of it there is now a far less chance of nuclear war or threats to any of these countries from the other?

These questions are raised based on substantiated facts, but with no explanations or comments from our governments and more substantially, no one in MSM is questioning these actions.  On the surface, they don’t seem related, but when looked at collectively they certainly suggest a certain co-ordinated effort to prepare for something of huge global impact.  Maybe it is time to wake up and begin to ask for the answers to these questions.

Now let me propose a possible scenario. I base this possible scenario on as much facts as I can and information that has presented to us by seemingly unassociated individuals that have proven to be fairly accurate in their facts and predictions and they base their efforts on at least a modicum of scientific methodology. They are Clif High, Courtney Brown, Dr. Steven Greer, and Nancy Leider.  I encourage everyone to check out their work.  While they are aware of each other’s work, it seems that there has been no collaboration between them and they have all arrived at similar conclusions.  They all have presented materials about events leading up the “Big Event” that have been uncannily accurate and correct.  Therefore based on their information and predictions, I have created this scenario.

Sometime between now and the spring of 2013, there will be an astronomic event involving the earth.  The source of this event may be a massive solar flare that will affect us all or a space body impacting the earth.  Which every the case may be, it will cause a complete disruption of life as we all know it globally. If it is a solar flare event, there could be a complete disruption of the global power grid and significant damage from radiation.  The RAND Corporation and others have actually completed studies on these impacts and you can read their assessments for yourself.  One such document, EMP Commission – Report of the Commission to Assess the Threat to the United States From Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) Attack – National Critical Infrastructures. The Rand Corporation recently prepared Report MG819 –A Stability Police Force for the US- Justification and Options for Creating US Capabilities which is a guide for the US Army to institute martial law.

If the event is a space body impacting the earth, which seems the more likely scenario, it will most likely strike in the southern hemisphere and most likely in the ocean.  The significance here is both the displacement wave and the resultant shock and heat concussion that would be generated.  A displacement wave is not a tsunami.  It is much larger and will travel much further inland than any imagined tsunami and it will mostly definitely affect ALL global coastal areas, which is where 90% of the global community lives.

This scenario is the one most supported by the people mentioned above and is most supported by the curious activities of our governments.  I believe they do know the when and where of it and are simply not telling us the truth for a number of reasons.

I am presenting this material is the briefest manner possible because I want everyone to consider this as a real warning.  I encourage everyone who reads this to do their own validation and if it resonates with you, at minimum, we should warn our families, friends, and the people who are dear to us.  I think we should also press our governments to at least provide a rational reason to deny their activities are in preparation for the event.  There are many “channellers”, BS artists, charlatans, and disinformation creeps trying to confuse the issue on the internet and other venues, but the facts simply indicate the danger is real.  Do yourself a favor and at least look into it.  If after that you feel it resonates with you, pass it on.  I will sleep a little better knowing I have at least “put it out there”.
