On January 6th, CNBC interviewed Henry Kissinger on the floor of the NY Stock Exchange. Kissinger stated that Obama had the perfect setting for the establishment of a 'New World Order': “His task will be to develop an overall strategy for America in this period when, really, a new world order can be created. It’s a great opportunity, it isn’t just a crisis.” The phrase “New World Order” is the elite’s way of saying “World Government” under their control.
On February 8, 2009, U.S. National Security Adviser James L. Jones gave these remarks at the 45th Munich Conference on Security Policy at the Hotel Bayerischer Hof. During his opening remarks, Jones admitted that he took his orders from Henry Kissinger. Jones said "Thank you for that wonderful tribute to Henry Kissinger yesterday. Congratulations. As the most recent National Security Advisor of the United States, I take my daily orders from Dr. Kissinger, filtered down through General Brent Scowcroft and Sandy Berger, who is also here. We have a chain of command in the National Security Council that exists today".
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gave a speech to the Council on Foreign Relations on Wednesday July 15th 2009. During her opening remarks, Clinton admitted that the elitist CFR pulls the strings of the U.S. government. Clinton effectively said that she was happy that the CFR had created an outpost in Washington DC because it meant she did not have to travel as far to get her orders. Her exact words were: "I am delighted to be here in these new headquarters. I have been often to, I guess, the mother ship in New York City, but it’s good to have an outpost of the Council right here down the street from the State Department. We get a lot of advice from the Council, so this will mean I won’t have as far to go to be told what we should be doing and how we should think about the future".
These people believe they are better than us; over and above us. And they use the US Treasury as if it were their personal bank accounts. Think I'm kidding? On May 5, 2009, Federal Reserve Inspector General Elizabeth Coleman admitted before the US Congress, that she had “no idea” where $2 Trillion of US taxpayer money that was dispersed by the Federal Reserve had gone, or who got it. (It went to Wall Street Firms, Foreign Banks, and Corporations). But the cost of the 'bailout" is already way above the "$2 Trillion" they said they needed. According to Multiple sources, including Bloomberg Financial News "The U.S. government and the Federal Reserve have spent, lent or committed $12.8 trillion, an amount that approaches the value of everything produced in the country last year, to stem the longest recession since the 1930s" - Financial Rescue Nears GDP as Pledges Top $12.8 Trillion - March 31st, 2009.
Taxpayer-funded travel is a big and growing perk for lawmakers and their families. The spending on overseas travel (known among lawmakers as 'codels') is up almost tenfold since 1995, and has nearly tripled since 2001, according to a Wall Street Journal analysis of 60,000 travel records. Hundreds of lawmakers traveled overseas in 2008 at a cost of about $13 million (a 50% jump since Democrats took control of Congress two years ago). That's $24,299 of FREE travel each year for the 535 members of our Legislative branch (on top of their $150,000 salary and benefits for life)! Spending by lawmakers on taxpayer-financed trips abroad include everything from war-zone visits (1 day in war-zone, then 7 days somewhere else) to trips to exotic spots such as the Galápagos Islands.
Then there is the First Lady, Michele Obama. She performs NO official duties, she wasn't elected to any office, and is not employed by "we the people". Yet this hasn’t deterred her from hiring 22 staffers that earn a total of 1.6 Million dollars in salary (that does NOT include the cost of benefits); and who cater to her every whim and satisfy her every request. How things have changed! Mamie Eisenhower had to shell out the salary for her 1 and only staffer, her personal secretary.
All this in the Midst of the Greatest Depression this Nation has ever seen; with untold millions of Americans facing destitution, losing their homes, working jobs earning minimum wage at Wal-Mart or McDonalds, or worse, no job at all. And who gets to foot the bill for these Congressional "Codels" and the "staff" that caters to Michele Obama's every whim and desire? Why we do, of course.
In David Rockefeller’s Memoirs (2002) he revealed on page 405 that he’s part of a “secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States… conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – one world, if you will.” In order for that to happen, the United States had to be transformed from the freest, richest, most powerful nation on earth, to one of third world status. Sadly, that task is almost accomplished. How, you might ask?
1) By unconstitutional laws, such as the recent “bailouts” which have now cost us a whooping 12.8 TRILLION (and climbing): voting to give Trillions to foreign and domestic corporations and banks, many who were responsible for the meltdown in the first place. They gave this money away in spite of the fact that they lacked the Constitutional authority to do so, all the while ignoring the demands and welfare of almost 100% of the people. Hundreds of Economists say these bailouts reward the greedy who caused and profited from the meltdown, while prolonging it with additional losses for the people.
2) By a 11.6 Trillion dollar National Debt (and climbing). In only his first six months in office, President Obama has added to the debt a staggering 1 TRILLION dollars; a new record!
3) By the 2.3 Trillion dollars stolen from and owed to the Social Security Trust Fund.
4) By the 4 Trillion dollars missing (and unaccounted for) from the Pentagon over the last 20 years.
5) By the 53 Trillion in liabilities and unfunded commitments, from Medicare, to Social Security, to public debt on pensions, that David Walker, the U.S. comptroller general and head of the Government Accountability Office, says “will grow by $2 trillion to $3 trillion every year and burden our children and their children after them... and that within the next five years, if nothing is done”, will bring us “a serious economic catastrophe”.
6) And lastly, by a 2.2 Trillion Dollar Budget Deficit for fiscal year 2009, and the “trillion-dollar deficits” that “will be a reality for years to come” according to the Obama administration. Where is the anger of the American people at the THEFT of Tens of Trillions of Dollars; which by the way “We the People” will be forced to pay off for generations “Ad Infinitum”!
This is a staggering amount of money! Do you realize just how much 1 Trillion dollars is? Well, if you put 1 Million dollars a day in a piggy bank, every day for 2,000 Years (year 9 thru 2009), you would ONLY have 730,000,000,000. (That's 730 BILLION dollars).
1,000,000.00 X 365 (Days) = 365,000,000.00
365,000,000.00 X 2,000 (Years) = 730,000,000,000.00
A Million dollars a day for 2,000 Years, and you don't even have 3/4 of a Trillion dollars.
Wake up! This is no “Conspiracy Theory”! Just look at what is happening to us, America. The middle class is being destroyed by greedy International Banks and Corporations, with the help of our "present day aristocracy" through unconstitutional trade agreements, which have allowed these corporations to move the most productive and high paying job sectors (manufacturing and industrial) over-seas, where labor is cheap and environmental regulations are non-existent. And the wages of the jobs that do remain have not kept up with the ever rising costs of goods and services. Not to mention the 60+ different taxes we pay at the federal, state, and local level.
And now, if President Obama has his way, the federal government will take over healthcare and turn it over to the bureaucrats to run. The inevitable result will be a vast deterioration in the quality of medical care, the neglect of our elderly, higher taxes, bigger deficits, government intrusion into people’s most private decisions, and ultimately the outright rationing of healthcare. Not to mention Trillions of dollars in new taxes; and Trillions more added to the already unbelievable 11.6 Trillion dollar debt. Hasn't President Obama and the republi-crats (or demo-cins, if you prefer) done enough damage so far this year? In only his first six months in office, the debt has risen a staggering 1 Trillion dollars. Not to mention the fact that the Federal Government has no Constitutional Authority whatsoever to meddle in the health care of "We the People".
And yet, at least ninety percent of the people of the United States actually believe the following myths and fairy tales: That Barack Obama, an unknown 1st term US Senator with LESS than 2 years of experience, rose out of obscurity to capture the highest office in the land; that Obama is the savior who will deliver us and this nation from the effects of a Century of morally corrupt behavior; that the economy can and will recover from a criminally induced collapse; that our courts actually dispense justice; that the Constitution is still the “Law of the Land”; that the government is “of the people” and serves the people; that the members of congress are selfless servants who never use their position to greedily accumulate wealth and power; that the United States and its military are always righteous and never the aggressor; that the United States is still a Constitutional Republic rather than a Socialist Democracy; that the national media reports only the truth and facts while upholding the dignity of those on whom they report; that our schools educate rather than indoctrinate; and that everything in the United States is just hunky-dory now that our “savior” Obama has arrived.
What I have written about here is nothing new people. In a letter written to Colonel E. Mandell House, President Franklin D. Roosevelt said, “The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the large centers has owned the government of the U.S. since the days of Andrew Jackson.” More than a few good men have tried to warn us. In 1922, New York City Mayor John F. Hylan confessed: “The real menace of our republic is this invisible government which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy length over city, state and nation. Like the octopus of real life, it operates under cover of a self created screen... At the head of this octopus are the Rockefeller Standard Oil interests and a small group of powerful banking houses generally referred to as international bankers. The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both political parties.” Reginald McKenna (Chairman of the Board - Midland Bank) speaking to stockholders in January 1924, admitted “They who control the credit of the nation direct the policy of Governments and hold in the hollow of their hands the destiny of the people.”
On June 10, 1932, Congressman McFadden launched a twenty-five minute tirade against the Fed. Some of his remarks: “Mr. Chairman, we have, in this country, one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve banks. The Federal Reserve Board, a government board, has cheated the government of the United States out of enough money to pay the national debt...The depredations and the iniquities of the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal reserve banks acting together have cost this country enough money to pay the debt several times over... This evil institution has impoverished and ruined the people of the United States; has bankrupted itself, and has practically bankrupted our Government. It has done this through defects of the law under which it operates, through the maladministration of that law by the Federal Reserve Board, and through the corrupt practices of the moneyed vultures who control it.”
Speaking before Congress in 1957, Nevada Senator George W. Malone stated: “I believe that if the people of this nation fully understood what Congress has done to them over the last 49 years, they would move on Washington; they would not wait for an election... It adds up to a preconceived plan to destroy the economic and social independence of the United States.” Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter, in 1952 stated “The real rulers in Washington are invisible, and exercise power from behind the scenes.”
On 1/17/1961, in a televised farewell address to the American people, President Dwight D. Eisenhower ended his presidential term by warning the American People about the increasing power of the “military-industrial complex.” Ike warned: “This conjunction of an immense military establishment & a large arms industry is new in the American experience... In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists & will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic process.” He then counseled American citizens to be vigilant in monitoring the military-industrial complex. “Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.”
Have we forgotten their lessons of our Fore-Fathers? “The liberties of our country, the freedom of our civil constitution are worth defending at all hazards; and it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have received them as a fair inheritance from our worthy ancestors: they purchased them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood, and transmitted them to us with care and diligence. It will bring an everlasting mark of infamy on the present generation, enlightened as it is, if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle, or be cheated out of them by the artifices of false and designing men” - Samuel Adams. “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety” - Pennsylvania Assembly: Reply to the Governor - Nov 11, 1755. “Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death”- Patrick Henry - March 23, 1775. “Live Free Or Die; Death Is Not The Worst of Evils”- General John Stark - July 31, 1809.
“And what country can preserve its liberties, if it's rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure”- Thomas Jefferson - November 13, 1787. “Government being instituted for the common benefit, protection, and security, of the whole community, and not for the private interest or emolument of any one man, family, or class of men; therefore, whenever the ends of government are perverted, and public liberty manifestly endangered, and all other means of redress are ineffectual, the people may, and of right ought to reform the old, or establish a new government. The doctrine of nonresistance against arbitrary power, and oppression, is absurd, slavish, and destructive of the good and happiness of mankind”- Article l0 (Right of Revolution), New Hampshire Constitution - June 2, l784.
The people who spoke these words, actually backed them up with action. They were NOT afraid to spill their Blood to throw off the shackles of Tyranny. They placed their lives on the line; without hesitation, not knowing if they would see “liberty or death”; not knowing if they would “Live Free Or Die”, yet comforted in knowing that “Death Is Not The Worst of Evils”. How have we fallen so far, so fast?
