I recently downloaded a 70 minute lecture by Ed Griffin, who made a lecture on his book, the creature from jekyl island;
(and if you could comment and tell me how to link, I'd be greatful)
Essentially, he talks about a conspiracy between bankers at the turn of the century. The conspiracy to setup the federal reserve bank as a way for congress to tax americans without their consent by essentially printing money as it was needed. You need 87 billion for war? Goto the federal reserve bank. It also allowed banks to make non-existant play money in loans, for which they only have to have 1/10 of the money actually in the bank (I can loan you $1,000 to buy a house, and only need $100 to make the loan by law) which americans then pay interest on; paying interest on nothing. It sounds illogical, but thanks to electronic banking, banking checks, and credit cards we don't know how much actual paper money is in circulation. Eventually, these banks get owned up by larger trusts, and the banks then are owned by a tree of people, all owned by a group of super rich megalomaniacs.
Then I read on northstars homepage, particularily his article on fema.
Now, he's talking about the american currency collapsing soon (too much money printed too often, with corporations defaulting on debt everywhere, equals a currency collapse, think about it). Atwhich point FEMA gets involved; all constitutional powers are revoked, as is the soverignty of the US and we become an UN nation under UN power. However, if there was a currency death right now in america, how many people would accept the rule of fema? Moreso, who would just decide to run off to the countryside to their friends/families farms and survive that way? The internet would be rife with conspiracy stuff. People would believe that their goverment is corrupt. So, the best way to handle the situation is to get the american people begging to be slaves by, dun dun dun daaaaa, demoralizing them. That means more attacks, more disgust with their goverment, and finally the american people deciding to go with the U.N. as an easy way out And since the goverment was run by so-called christians...
You know, I could probably build a case that could convert athiests...I think I might...then distribute it to churches around in my town and see what happens...hrm.
Now Bush's spend to bust programs make sense, why would he lower the taxes on the economic elite in the country, who are feverently skipping town with their property and as much gold/silver/plantinum/shiney things as possible, thereby increasing the taxes on the rest of us? Americans spent like mofo's in the 90's, then we had an economic bust, fallowed by massive debt. As the debt climbs, corporations go out of business, new startups are made, and the biguns get gigantic as they eat smaller corporations. Don't believe me? Ask yourself this; why would Bush try to spend nearly a trillion to put us on mars when the country is already 7 trillion in debt? Surely he realizes that is a bad idea...infact people are so used to politicians doing stupid things that they accept it, ignoring the warning signs. If the currency keeps devaluing at it's current rate, at some point it's going to plummet and the institutions of our society are going to begin falling like domino's.
I don't like the looks of that at all...
