FROM “IN DEFENSE OF RURAL AMERICA”

“We are grateful to The Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and their great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.” David Rockefeller, 1915, Internationalist billionaire, CFR kingpin, founder of the Trilateral Commission, World Order Godfather
As you can see from the above quotes, powerful men have been trying to merge America from a sovereign nation into a world of nations, dictatorships and democracies alike, for the last hundred years, in the interest of commerce and the flow of money, especially the flow of money. The establishment of the United Nations just after World War II was one element of the merger.
As you go about your daily life, these powerful men and their descendants and acolytes are directly impacting how you make and spend your money, how much your money is worth, what you buy, where you live, what you drink, what you eat, what you drive, the cost of energy and how you heat and light your home. It all has to do with the international movement of money, the rates of exchange between currencies, tariffs, the balance of trade, energy, the environment and wars. You are being manipulated, herded, cajoled and lied to, on a daily basis in the name of money (man-caused global warming, etc.). But all this manipulation of your lives and lying, takes place in secret and it is so quiet and subtle, you never hear about it. Because, as MIT Professor Gruber said with regard to the passing of ObamaCare, “it is easier to govern when the people are stupid, uninformed and kept in the dark.”
Let’s take one example of international currency manipulation in what has been dubbed the “Plaza Accord.”
Between the years 1980 and 1985, inflation in America was rampant and the dollar had increased dramatically in its value related to other currencies, including the currencies of Japan, Germany, France and Great Britain, America’s major trading partners. In fact, the dollar appreciated over 50% against these four other currencies. Some of you may remember that was a time of very high interest rates and inflation in America.
Money and investors aren’t discriminatory. They follow the path to the greatest wealth. In other words, the natural law says that money flocks to where the money is flowing. That law is never broken and if it is, someone loses big-time.
Many industries in America were being hammered by the high value of the dollar, so the finance ministers of Japan, Germany, France and Britain met with then U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Howard Baker at the Plaza Hotel in New York City in late September of 1985 and worked on an agreement to bring down the value of the dollar. The “plan” was that the dollar would be brought down gently over a period of time. However, the dollar against the Japanese Yen virtually went into free fall from 1985 to 1987 and another intervention into the value of the dollar (The Louvre Accord) took place to stop the decline. (See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plaza_Accord)
Yes, the devaluation of the dollar did make American companies more competitive in world markets but what did the devaluation do for the American consumer? Did you, an American citizen, have a say in any of these huge financial decisions? Did Americans get to vote on them? Of course not! World finance is not open to a representative form of government, much less fall under the umbrella of what the international elite consider to be an “out-of-date,” or just plain irrelevant, U.S. Constitution.
The point here is that the finance ministers, central bankers, industrialist and multi-billionaires are meeting all the time to manipulate currencies, economies and international trade. Billionaire George Soros has made billions in trading in international currencies. His trading and manipulation have made him rich and brought down countries to the point of bankruptcy.
The American citizen, who touts his freedom and individual rights under a mirage of a constitution, is but a pawn to these decisions by the world elite and can only adjust and adapt, as cattle on a cattle drive, or a puppet on a string.
World-manipulated finance recognizes no international boundaries, sovereignty, or national law. World finance is a power unto itself, run by powerful, very wealthy men with huge political influence. What they do can destroy a country, a company, or a person, or make a country, company, or person rich beyond their wildest dreams. But in almost all cases of money manipulation, the manipulators always increase their wealth.
These money manipulators on the world stage make huge mistakes that cost the average citizen intense pain. They very seldom get it right because they are trying to “tweak” a non-linear dynamic system where even minor changes can result in huge fluctuations in the markets and currency exchange rates.
Here is another example of how these money manipulators got it wrong:
September 16, 1992 was known as Black Wednesday in England. Great Britain was the last European nation to enter the European Exchange Rate Mechanism (ERM). They joined the ERM in an effort to assist in the unification of the European economies about the time the Euro currency was born. Unfortunately, it was a bad decision, not only for the Bank of England, but for the average citizen of Great Britain.
The Government had pegged the British Pound at 2.7 German Marks as a requirement to join the ERM. But like so many things that governments and powerful men do, the exchange rate was unsustainable. England was going through an extended period of inflation and high interest rates, significantly higher than the German inflation rate. The German Mark was the core currency of the ERM but Germany was under intense financial pressure from the unification with East Germany. This disparate condition became the focus of speculators who then stepped in and started manipulating the two currencies, buying and selling long or short, wherever the most money could be made.
Britain then raised its interest rate to attract more investors to the Pound but the speculators started shorting the Pound (George Soros among them). The British Government was losing billions trying to prop up its currency and finally had to withdraw from the ERM. George Soros walked away with a cool billion or so, in effect, breaking the Bank of England.
The truth is, we live in an international financial one-world based on debt. Debt is an instrument of control! If you don’t think so, just try not complying with the terms of your mortgage ….. or worse, not paying your taxes. Debtors are almost always compliant to their lenders.
The national debt and deficit are a direct obligation of the citizens of the nation, obligated by the force of law. The lifetime earnings of each individual are the collateral for the nation’s debt. In America, your social security number is your individual loan number for that debt.
Debt is very good for the world’s central bankers because they make huge sums of money off of a nation’s debt, and contrary to the popular mindset, central bankers run the world, not politicians.
Do you think that these international money manipulators care one whit about the average citizen? Do you think that the elite, moneyed members of the central banks, the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the Trilateral Commission, the Bilderberg Group, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), the WTO and the G7 and G20 countries care about what you do in your life, how you live, how much money you have to spend, where you work, what you drive, or what you eat, or your individual liberties? Hell, no! But what they do and the decisions they make have a direct impact on every aspect of your life. These international “manipulators” are picking winners and losers and playing favorites at your expense. You aren’t a player at their poker table, but you are most always one of the losers.
The unfortunate truth is, ladies and gentlemen, Americans already live in the one-world order, with virtually no influence or impact on economic or financial outcomes.
What can Americans do about any of this? One thing Americans can do is to retake the power from their government as the “Consent of the Governed,” and the second thing they can do is to stamp out the embedded corruption wherever it exists in government, in corporations, in unions and in special interest groups. It is a tall order, but it is probably the only solution to preserve freedom and American sovereignty ….. short of revolution.
Nevertheless, it may be a hopeless task in the end because the move to strike a deal for world government happened 101 years ago when then President Woodrow Wilson signed the 16th Amendment into law, with the direct assistance of the Democrats who controlled Congress at the time ….. ala ObamaCare in 2010. That one-world-order deal was further cemented in 1933 when FDR took office as the 2nd dictator of the United States of America and removed gold as the substance behind the American dollar so that it would float among the world’s currencies.
Not knowing what the world government deal meant, or even knowing that a deal had taken place, the American people stood by and watched, oblivious to the international actions that would further erode their freedom. At the time, they were totally distracted and looking for a savior to relieve them from the ravages of the Great Depression, that some say with credibility, was created by our own Federal Reserve. The people found their savior in FDR who did more to transform America into a socialist country than all the presidents before him. Obama may have just finished the job with his current executive order to grant amnesty to 5 million illegal aliens. Sadly, the people are still distracted from reality and oblivious to what the powerful and wealthy elite has wrought.
In 1999 by Pat Shannon wrote a book entitled “One In A Million.” In the introduction to Chapter 3, Shannon wrote:
“Beneath the dam of ruthless federal rule, the stream of freedom was running shallow and muddy. The majority of the American people were not aware of what was happening, but some of those who knew had begun to realize that the time was at hand when men and women would have to make up their minds whether they were on the side of freedom and justice and the American republic; or if they would quietly submit to tyranny, oppression and the New World Order. The window of opportunity for making that decision was rapidly closing.”
Yes, the window of opportunity is rapidly closing. Ladies and gentlemen, no matter what happens or what Americans decide to do, the first step, in order to put you in the right frame of mind for the task ahead, is to “Declare Open Resistance” against government corruption and tyranny. Nothing in America will change until this mindset of open resistance becomes wide spread across the entire nation. All we see right now is smoke. Hopefully, that smoke will soon erupt into a serious fire of open resistance and anger at what government has become and has done to our individual rights and liberty, as we descend ever further into the abyss of the One-World-Order, fueled by debt.
