Some of you may be struggling having lost your job; your suffering is more troublesome to me when I contemplate why our economy is so messed up. Before you read on I must warn you that I am neither Republican nor Democrat. As an Independent and as a self-professed Integrative thinker, I feel both parties are puppets in the hands of the Moneymaking Wizard behind the curtain who purposely instigates discord, intolerance and extreme ideologies in both parties so that they “don’t pay attention to the man behind the curtain.” The result is predictable and seen throughout history: we the people get suckered into fighting each other while the Wizard laughs all the way to his temples, the banks, where he cranks up his moneymaking machines to enslave us with his “funny money.” John Adams, George Washington and Thomas Jefferson warned us this would happen if we let private bankers take control of our currency and money supply. Adams even stated that the surest way to lose our freedom was not to be conversant about how money works. Surely you know that whoever controls the purse calls the shots. Since our Founding Fathers, honest Presidents have struggled, and some have lost their lives (Lincoln, Garfield, Kennedy) trying to regain Congress’ Constitutional right to issue our currency. “Banksters” have always tried to take this prerogative from the people in various ways, mostly by creating moneymaking central banks. In the short history of our country, one President stands out in this titanic struggle, Andrew Jackson. Sadly, the “moneychangers” finally succeeded with the creation of the Federal Reserve Banks in the still of the night in 1913. The main consequence is an economy that runs on debt, not real wealth. Since the dawn of mankind, money has defined Homo Sapiens; some feel we should be more fittingly named Homo Economicus. The manipulation of money has bedeviled every society’s policies and science. Initially, money was as it should be, a reflection of a society’s wealth from people’s honest labors as stored in the king’s or Lord’s warehouses. Instead of trading and conducting business in those bulky, perishable goods, governments of all stripes came up with some symbol of said wealth as currency to be used as legal tender in trading. That is when bankers stepped in to convince governments to using bullion/precious metals as currency, because the moneychangers happened to own the mines producing said metals. Later, international trade from East to West necessitated the exchange of currencies from gold to silver and vice versa. Soon after that, banksters figured out that they could print money to symbolize the precious metals, only to print more than the metal reserves they had on hand. The next step was creating money out of thin air as they loaned money to governments and the people. Debt-creation became a dogmatic axiom that even today is viewed as necessary to run a society’s economy. This is not true; but we have been brain-washed to think it is. Debt-driven societies allow the Moneymaking Wizard to retain the power he has over people and their governments, who then become mere marionettes under the strings of the super wealthy. But, deep inside, the least of us intuits the truth: true wealth has been and will always be the fruit of our labor, like my mom’s backbreaking janitorial work, not speculation or moneymaking out of funny money. The basic problem with fiat money is that it doesn’t create enough money to repay the debt thus generated, thereby obligating the borrower to slavery in too many cases. Slowly, banksters come to obligate even heads of state throughout the world to do their bidding. In fact, these greedy elitists often incite wars to gain even more from their manipulation of money. Often, the “other side” is demonized to justify an attack, when in reality the “enemy’s” main transgression is the fact that its rulers/kings have dared to reject the banksters control of moneymaking. In other words, when said chieftains dare print their own money, banksters must eliminate the threat to their lucrative racket. But, when countries create their own money they become incredibly wealthy because they are dealing with true wealth from their hard labor. A modern example of this is China. Of course, China’s social violations are magnified while ours are minimized. This is why history has demonized rogue nations from Sparta to China. Not surprisingly, history (written by the elitists who control the media and academia) fails to tell that banksters themselves initially enrich rogue countries (like Russia and Nazi Germany) just to instigate the wars that end up benefitting the banksters and their partners in crime, the military-industrial complex. For example, the Bolshevik revolution was financed by J. P. Morgan, Rockefeller and their ilk on Wall Street, much the same as the American revolution was about money. Ben Franklyn felt that the substitution of debt as money, the replacement of real money by the facsimile of money that was the real cause of the Revolution: “In the colonies we issue our own money. It is called Colonial Scrip. We issue it to pay the government’s approved expenses and charities. We make sure it is issued in proper proportions to make the goods pass easily from the producers to the consumers… in this manner, creating for ourselves our own money, we control its purchasing power, and we have no interest to pay to anyone. A legitimate government can both spend and lend money into circulation, while banks can only lend significant amounts of their promissory bank notes, for they can neither give away nor spend but a tiny fraction of the money people need. Thus, when your banks here in England place money in circulation there is always debt principal to be returned and usury to be paid. The result is that you have always too little credit in circulation to give the workers full employment. You do not have too many workers, you have too little money in circulation, and that which circulated, all bears the endless burden of unpayable debt and usury.” In other words, your unemployment is a result of the greed that fuels our funny money economy. And how do banksters respond to Franklyn’s enlightened statement? They will tell you that Colonial Scripts didn’t work, and for that matter, neither did Lincoln’s Greenbacks. They will also say those currencies fueled too much inflation. What they will not tell you is that Banksters sabotaged those currencies by flooding the market with forged notes they printed themselves. We must understand moneymaking if we wish to be free. “The facsimile of money is deliberately designed to enhance and enrich only those who control its issuance, and can never serve the broader public good because it is not designed to do so.” So, don’t get suckered into the maze of smoke and mirrors created by Wall Street; by obfuscating common sense with “derivatives” and other tools to further manipulate debt and money, they think themselves to be smarter than us, while they laugh all the way to their temples to consort with the Wizard. I say it is time to throw the moneychangers out of our temples, abolish the Federal Reserve Banks and restore our right to create our own money. But, before we allow our government to do so, we will have to disinfect it of the Wizard’s influence. Keep this in mind as you vote this Tuesday.
