Children of the Empty Promise - Money The Ultimate Addiction

Children of the Empty Promise

Children of the Empty Promise

Last night’s debate ended another long and irrelevant campaign. ‘The Children of the Empty Promise’ was created in 1966, in response to Lyndon Baines Johnson who gave us The Great Society and left these children that are now in their mid-forties. That world changed, but not for the better! The relevance of this comparison is that what we do now about everything that has gone wrong for decades, will determine not just what happens to our children; but everything that will potentially come crashing down upon us all.

Every four years all the words and phrases are exactly the same: ‘We’re going to change the world, save the middle class and restore “American Values, along with that special favorite “The American Dream.” ’ “Funding, tax-breaks, earmarks: Yet, during all of Cheney-Bush the only things we’ve ever spent real money on were bombs and bullets and secret no-bid contracts to enforce failed polices that are illegal, amoral and criminal.

Control over taxes must be returned to the people directly – maybe we could hold national elections for that one, since our representatives refuse to do it! Congress was supposed to do this, but their responsibilities went right out the window, along with ‘our’ severely damaged constitution and all the laws that they just could not wait to trash under their new Dictator – some very disturbing facts that both these contenders for top-criminal have already signed off on! Neither contender mentioned our tremendously successful new jobs program – that’s the option of last resort – which is to join the military and kill people for multi-national corporations! ‘You too could volunteer’! Another tremendous career opportunity for our men and women, given the fact that there are no real jobs and the real direction that this country is already apparently committed to!

By the way, we should not be in the business of protecting those corporations and the bankers from the public, nor has it been proven that giving tax breaks to these people does anything but encourage more theft, fraud and criminal activity. The elites already have more money from illicit profits than any business conglomerate in the world could ever dream of – so why not cap executive salaries, and spread the pain around a little? We need to re-enact Glass-Stiegel and put real fire-walls between all the various kinds of financial games and outright criminality!

Government spending on the Bush Doctrine of 2002 is what is “Out-of-Control!” We do not have a mandate to bankrupt or to murder the rest of the planet, any more than we have to outspend the world fifteen times over on a military that is overused, worn out, and stretched too far to ever complete any of their ever-changing missions. Cut the purse strings and bring the National Guard units home immediately. We need them all here to defend the citizens, during this pending imposition of Martial Law!

If we were really serious about cutting-costs then we ought to break all those secret-contracts with the mercenaries, this would end our wars for profit in the Middle-East and elsewhere in a flash! But that’s never going to happen!

And since we’re now way beyond insolvency we need to dump the Zionists that have taken over Israel. We’ve been subsidizing that unfinished state for over fifty years so let’s let the Zionists fight their own fights for a change! We have real needs here that must take precedence over the failures of that spoiled, dependent and parasitic-state. But don’t look for any help with this from either of these two amateurs – both have sworn undying allegiance to Israel over the real interests of the United States, which technically makes both Obama and McCain –Traitors. But what then does this make us; for tolerating “leaders” that publicly swear allegiance to foreign nations, with tremendous pride, over the nation that pays them, and is the one and only nation that these traitors are supposed to represent!

Tonight made something else official, neither candidate has even mentioned that Mammoth in the living room that no one plans to deal with; which are the real costs of those Derivatives that are out there in the dark just waiting for us like a trillion vultures – and neither candidate has put forward any plan to deal seriously with any of this reality!

“The entire crisis is not a crisis of subprime mortgages, it is a crisis of the derivatives bubble which was launched by Wendy Gramm of the Commodities Futures Trading Commission and Greenspan of the Fed with the connivance of Robert Rubin of Goldman Sachs and Citibank, and others in the Clinton administration, some 15 years ago. These derivatives now amount to a total worldwide notional value that can be estimated between 1 quadrillion and two quadrillion US dollars. This sum is so large that it dwarfs the total value of the entire planet earth and all those who live here. Compared to the cancerous, bloated, and fictitious mass of derivatives which is at the root of this crisis, the $700 billion demanded by politicians, large as this may seem, is nothing but a drop in the bucket. And a drop in the bailout bucket is what it will be. The mass of world derivatives between $1 and $2 quadrillion represents an insatiable black hole which is capable of putting an end, not just to civilization, but to human life itself.” (1)

“The total potential cost of the financial bailout to the U.S. taxpayer is already rapidly approaching $5 trillion, over seven times as much as the meaningless $700 billion bailout bill figure.

Analysts have previously marked out the $5 trillion figure as the actual cost, now those predictions are becoming demonstratively accurate.

Meanwhile, Hank Paulson has defended government intervention, stating "There's no doubt that the way to get the maximum bang for the taxpayers here was to invest in banks."”

The US keeps three sets of books. The first is what we let the politicians talk about; the second is the “serious truth” which we give to insider’s for the talk-shows to threaten the little people with, whenever ‘we’ begin to get too testy. Then there are the real figures: The actuality we face is 56 Trillion in off the books debt that we have no plans at all to even remotely deal with! (3)

Where does all this leave us? Well if the past is prologue, then here’s another gift from 1966 – this one from LBJ’s War on Poverty – it’s called:

“A Home for Every One”
A Home for Everyone

This was the Model Cities Program created by LBJ but that now has been taken over by FEMA. Just as The War on Poverty produced only deeper poverty, and the War on Drugs has only turned this place into a nation of addicts: every one of the Oval Office turncoats since LBJ has been doing his part to bring us to this point, and with the clarity of yesterday’s numbers it is now obvious that the Central Banks are actively colluding to destabilize the world’s economies! This is not even secret anymore because they think there’s nothing that can be done to stop them! Let’s give them a “Surprise” of our own for a “Change.” And let’s do something about them!

It looks like it’s over, and if all that mattered were the technical truths and the very real projections, then that might be so. But given the last forty-four years that I’ve watched this cavalcade of Oval-Office-Occupants pass through what remains of a nation – each one worse than the last – I’d have to say that this nation has never faced anything like this total takeover of the planet. Maybe the sheer arrogance of this most recent set of moves this will finally force people to do what they know they must, to stop this nightmare. What I ‘know’ beyond words, is that if we do not move to stop these thugs now – then it will be too late for anything else – and these debates were designed to do nothing more than waste your time!

The Ultimate Addiction

October 15, 2008

The Devil does indeed ‘lie in the details’ of this finalizing moment of the federal government’s insertion of itself, into the previously most-private interests of the major banks and US financial institutions. As early as today it is becoming clear that these banks and institutions are not yet “interested” in loaning out the $250 Billion that they got in exchange for letting the government into their private dens-of-monetary-iniquity: “NOT interested”!

So the owners are going to keep the money to “earn” more illicit interest, at the expense of those in crying need for what that investment of capital was supposed to solve? That’s what we get for not making the loaning of that money immediately mandatory! Analysis’s say that the money just inserted will not be available for several months: which translates to “AFTER the Elections.”

According to the Wall Street Journal this morning:
“Monday afternoon at 3 p.m. at the Treasury headquarters Messrs Paulson and Bernanke had called one of the most important gatherings of bankers in American history. As the meeting neared a close, each banker was handed a term sheet determining how the government would take stakes valued at a combined $125 billion in their banks, and impose new restrictions on executive pay and dividend policies.” However from comments made at that meeting it was clear that the bankers did not see the need for this, however it was equally clear to them, that they had to sign those term sheets.

Meanwhile: "The Fed, on its own initiative, began passing out the cash. $49 billion last Wednesday alone went to the banks. That same day, the Fed lent $146 billion to investment firms. By the time people went home for the weekend, $410 billion had passed from the Fed to private firms. The money was lent, says the Bloomberg report, at about 2.25% interest." As a point of reference, I got an email where Oliver Garret of Casey Research by way of The Daily Reckoning said, "To put this amount into perspective: if you had spent one million dollars a day, from the birth of Christ until today, you would have only spent about 732 billion dollars."” The Mogambo Guru for The Daily Reckoning, Australia.

Apparently high finance is too esoteric for most Americans to keep up with. Maybe we can more easily understand how the dollar signs on the ankles above are instrumental in linking us to each other. But there are additional common denominators throughout his entire charade that de-mystify this giveaway of the public’s money to the most dangerous high-profile criminals in the land: Our Money-Lenders!

These money-lenders, the owners of our lives, are in the habit of demanding all kinds of behavior-modifications from the public, as well as the work-force, to minimize “risks” to their capital investments: Risks that they feel they suffer whenever any of their two-legged collateral is employed.

Workers are property (business collateral) and must be monitored in every aspect of their lives: even though they are only paid for a small portion of their 24-7 workweek; which their owners currently have total-control over. So in exchange for the privilege of a dead-end job; workers must modify their behaviors to conform to what is directly optimal for the financial benefit of their Owners. That is what lies behind the regulations of every habit and association practiced by any employee; on or off their so-called “jobs”!

Now compare that “deal” with the one that was struck in 1913 by the Federal Reserve “Bank” with the Congress of the United States. In exchange for the right to print all US currency; The Federal Reserve Bank did NOT have to pay the government for that license, rather, we the people of the USA had to pay them (the private owners of the Federal Reserve Bank) for every dollar of ours which they print!

What kind of a negotiation was that; and who exactly was “protecting the real and long-term interests of the people” of this country? It was definitely not the congress, or the US Supreme Court, and that illegal quagmire is at the core of this entire problem with our money and our “credit” now!

Common-denominators Throughout every financial investment or money management decision, the parties involved from the investors to the lenders to the borrowers; the one thing that all seem to have in common is an addiction to outrageous profits. This is akin to being simultaneously addicted to both cocaine and heroin. When addictions on this level are involved, neither rational thinking nor common sense, are ever allowed to affect the final choices made by these quasi-legal constructs that we call corporations or privately owned central banks, which the public must then live with!

Is this gullible American public going to let this happen again without a fight! Damn! And to think we used to pride ourselves on being hard-headed businessmen and women: Looks like we just sold out to the worst bunch of criminals this world has ever seen, and we’re doing it without even filing class-action lawsuits against every agency involved, for all that they’ve already taken from us; not to mention how much more we shall continue to lose – given their obvious reluctance to act in time to avert those huge additional loses; loses which these confounding mixed signals are sending to the nation and the world!

If America is ever going to get out of this bottomless pit that we’re digging for ourselves: then we have to stop digging – now! And as full-blown financial addicts we must rein-in the usurious habits that we’ve allowed our owners to become accustomed to.

Interest rates must be slashed on everything and the taxes that were taken off the major corporations must be reinstated, then added to, as these partners in crime acting on behalf of the money-lenders have been the only ones to benefit from seven years of war and criminality to which this administration has fully committed this nation and our descendents for the next fifty years!

This is why people have to be fired at the top, in every area of the administration of this Bailout of the Bandits, if there is to ever be even the slightest hope of that return to profitability that yesterday’s headlines so prematurely-proclaimed, in banner headlines!

Addicts of any kind have never made good leaders, because they are far too vulnerable to the weaknesses of their addictions: in this case their addiction to obscene amounts of illicit profits. If those setting the interest rates and making decisions are removed, then the stock-holders will be forced to curtail their addictions as well. If this cannot be done – then we need to get used to the idea that “Yesterday is Gone,” forever! From the day on which that phrase becomes the fact: everything here will crumble, because there will be no room for anything that is actually legitimate or legal: Which means that an Outlaw-Country will have replaced what working people built into an imperfect nation, but one that at least had a fighting chance for most of its people.

The New World Order, in the uniform of The Fascist North American Union, will not resemble that “USA” that so many still believe exists! Once the ‘selections’ are over the real changes will begin because there will technically no longer be any reason at all to fear this public: A public that has proven itself over and over and over again to be more than compliant – with whatever these overpaid traitors have directed them “to do!” As an example, the only reference to the public, given in any of the government’s explanations for this crisis has never included the word citizen. “We” are always referred to as “consumers,” because under the constitution consumers have no standing at all, whereas “citizens” have rights!

It was your money that they’re using now: and if you continue to do nothing the rest of everything you have will end up in their coffers. I live hand-to-mouth now, but when I was younger those who lived as most do now were targets for every kind of con, because they did not pay attention: None of that has changed America, because “a Mark is still a Mark, just as “a Con is still a Con.” What happened to that pride that you used to have about being so aware, especially when it came to business?

Talk to your friends; take another long, hard look at your business associates, at your relationships and, god forbid, at what passes for your life! There have to be a number of things that you can do now, to begin to take back control over your own life, and reassert yourself. We must break our chains to this addiction to illicit profits and Outlaw control over our government because failure to do this now is unthinkable!
