Sunday, September 21, 2008 - "World history is spotted with stories of political conquests: Attila the Hun, Genghis Khan, the Pharaohs, Alexander the Great, and Roman Caesars, each who seized physical control of a country, its economy and assets. History holds no story of a take over based solely on a country's assets, until now. The modern day Attila's, Genghis Khan's, Pharaoh's, and Caesar's are the men who own and control the Central Banks of the world. America's Central Bank is the Federal Reserve, which controls our monetary system, is not part of our governmental system, and, although its name would imply, it has no reserves.
The 13th month of America's credit crisis may hold its own in history as a country whose economic power and bulk of wealth, overnight, become the assets of the Federal Reserve. This may well be the finest of coup d'tats.
For more than a week the news media has been a buzz, clamoring for the need to change our regulatory system. When Congress votes to pass "The Treasury Blueprint for a Modernized Financial Regulatory System," it will hand over to the Federal Reserve the last vestiges of our financial sovereignty: savings and loans; state chartered banks; thrifts and credit unions; the entire mortgage and insurance systems, as well as oversight of the Payment and Settlement System of Wall Street. In addition, the Feds would gain oversee rights to all of America's financial markets. (To read "The Treasury Blueprint for a Modernized Financial Regulatory Structure", go to http://www.ustreas.gov).
Most Americans can't fathom what is really happening. How could something like this happen in America? How did people who lived through the 1929 Crash and Great Depression manage when everything they knew changed overnight? The answer is: they were not in debt the way Americans are today. Multi-generations lived together, all working to pay off the mortgage. Additionally, a great many families lived on farms where they could raise their own food. Today, we are dependent on large banks for our mortgage and debt, and big grocery stores for our food rather than our own farm.
We know from various historians that when the stock market crashed in 1929, the Federal Reserve was at fault because they did not put liquidity into the system but took it out, thus exacerbating the Crash and causing the Great Depression. In response, on the day he was sworn in, newly elected President Franklin D. Roosevelt took control of the private ownership of gold when he closed the banks down. He also instituted a number of socialistic measures to put Americans to work with infrastructure projects. Today, the Federal Reserve is putting billions of newly printed dollars into the American and global financial system, which will increase the interest on the debt that Americans owe to the Federal Reserve. We have no idea, at this time, what that will do to our purchasing power, but you can be sure that it will drop. In fact, the value of the dollar could drop so low that we will have to merge our currency with Canada, Mexico, and the other countries of this hemisphere, or even forego the proposed Amero for the Special Drawing Right-SDR, a basket of five currencies: the dollar, the Swiss Franc, the British pound sterling, the euro and the yen. The SDR is the currency used by the IMF/World Bank and adopted several years ago by the Bank for International Settlements when they changed from the gold franc to the SDR.
I am grateful to geopolitical expert Terry Hayfield, who introduced me to the writings of Harvard economist Joseph Schumpeter. Schumpeter came up with the idea of creative destruction as a way of saving capitalism, or should we say, transferring the value of capitalism from many to a few powerful insiders? Since capitalism is an ism, like Marxism, socialism, or fascism, you need to prop it up by destroying in order to 'save'. Our economy has been propped up by debt: mortgages, credit cards, home equity loans, lines of credit, auto loans, tuition loans, medical loans, Treasury bills, notes and bonds, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, commercial loans, business loans, etc. We must also keep in mind that for every loan, interest or a usury, is being collected. We are a debtor nation.
Creative Destruction is the key component, as seen in most of this past weeks headlines. The Financial Times screamed: 'CREDIT PANIC HITS HISTORIC LEVELS'; 'FAR REACHING CHANGES LOOM IN US'; 'PUSH FOR CRISIS BREAKTHROUGH'; and 'GLOBAL MARKETS ROAR IN APPROVAL, US Rescue Plan Sparks Record Rises for Equities'. The Washington Post reiterated: 'STOCKS PLUMMET AS LENDING FREEZES UP, Lawmakers Left on the Sidelines as Fed, Treasury Take Swift Action'; 'US PROPOSES $500B BAILOUT, Bush's Shifting Ideology,' and 'PRESIDENT SEEKS HISTORICALLY BROAD MARKET INTERVENTION'. This mornings,(Sunday) The Washington Post headlines read: 'WASHINGTON READIES SEA CHANGE FOR WALL STREET, Cultural and Structural Shifts Rise Out of Risk-Taking Titans' Hard Fall' and 'RESCUE PLAN GROWS TO $700B, Similar Measurers Urged Overseas'.
Listening to the commentators on CNBC business news, the words 'creative destruction' and 'Schumperterism' is coming into dialogue. The following is a discussion from September 15th between Larry Cudlow, Mark Haines and Erin Burnett:
Mark Haines: "Is this another example of creative destruction for the failure of government?"
Larry Cudlow: "Lots of mistakes but the role of creative destruction and Schumperter play a role here."
Erin: "We have a philosophy of 'a veil of uncertainty and Schumpertism' "
For years I have been writing and warning that our entire economy and all of our assets are in the process of being transferred to the Federal Reserve, who now appears to be running the United States of America. We have had a bloodless coup by a very, very powerful group of ruthless men who not only control the United States of America but in unity, control the world in conjunction with all of the other central banks. Furthermore, they have united to intervene in global markets. Their apex: the Bank for International Settlements, (BIS), located in Basle, Switzerland. During this past week, as they acted in accord with liquidity to the tune of $600B, opening up their discount windows for 24 hour loans to any banking institution in trouble, it may be fair to say a world or global central bank was birthed.
What is a central bank? The idea began originally in Sweden, who decided that they would set up a private corporation to lend monies to the government at interest. The government would pay interest on the principal borrowed forever. Interest in perpetuity! Can you imagine interest being paid to you forever? This is usury par excellent and is known as bondage. This brilliant idea was adopted by Holland which transported it to England, and little by little around the world.
Initially, America had its own central bank, which was formed at the time of our Independence, but was soon closed by President Andrew Jackson who saw the evil behind it. It was reborn as The Federal Reserve Act on December 24, 1913 at 11:45 p.m. when a group of greedy politicians garnered enough votes for passage after their opposing colleagues recessed for the holidays. With the swipe of a pen the ability to coin America?s money was relinquished to the Federal Reserve.
Since then Congress has voted over 195 times to give the Federal Reserve more power. In effect Congress has voted away all their authority and power to protect us. If they don't vote for the emergency package, i.e. Resolution Trust and Blueprint, the market will crash; if they do pass it, the American people are reduced to serfs and slaves in the New World Order, which will be run by the real financial center of the world: the City of London. Either way the blame will lay with Congress. Each and every one of our lawmakers should be tried and hanged for treason, along with every president and Congress before them all they way back to 1913.
With most Americans up to their eyeballs in debt, it is as if we have been led to the slaughter. First the $7T crash of the NASDAQ in 1999, where the value of our stocks and bonds dropped, followed by 9/11 where the government told Americans to support our economy by 'going out and spend'. The Fed accommodated Bush by dropping interest rates to 45 year lows. Naive and happy Americans bit the apple to purchased the American Dream. The level of debt rose astronomically. Then came the home equity lines of credit. Wow! All this for us! No 'we have been thrown into the lion's den' be it Daniel's Lion's Den or the Coliseum. Now, using the credit crisis. (which in my opinion, was created) these 21st Century Attila the Huns, a/k/a/ the Federal Reserve, is coming in for the kill.
These carpet-baggers are going to clean up and become the new royalty in America, owning homes across the land that they were able to purchase for two cents on the dollar. The first time they did this was the Savings and Loan Crisis in 1980, where the same kind, but different types of events were orchestrated to bring down the institutions that held commercial real estate. Do you remember that Congress authorized the Resolution Trust Corporation which was financed by our tax dollars to get rid of all the 'worthless' commercial real estate? The problem is that we never had any accounting nor public disclosure about who bought what assets, as it was all very clandestine. Now 28 years later, we have the same situation, except it is our mortgages. What happened between then and now?
The price of homes rose substantially. In 1970, before Nixon took the dollar off the gold standard, you could buy a three bedroom all brick house on ? acre for $32,000 in the Washington, D.C. area. Today that same home sells for a reduced price of $450,000 - $500,000, depending on where it is located. Our currency has been devalued substantially. That is the real reason for inflated prices along with the situation that was created after the 9/11 tragedy. The Federal Reserve has lured Americans into their dream house, which has become their worst nightmare, by dropping interest rates to 45 year lows, creating a mortgage bubble. At that moment, you could not find a house to buy because of all the activity, causing prices to double in a very short period of time.
What can we expect, now that we are in the Lion's Den? Congress will pass the legislation that the Federal Reserve wants, possibly as early as Monday morning, to calm the markets. This legislation will not tell us everything we want or should know.
I can only assume the following based on my fourteen years of research:
First of all, as a result of the international banker turned Treasury Secretary turned Federal Reserve Chairman, Ben S. Bernanke's actions to rescue AIG without Congressional or Presidential approval, set LEGAL precedence for replacing and changing the Constitution. Never before in the history of America has a president delegated total Presidential authority to a non-elected official.
Secondly, international banker, Hank Paulson said Sunday morning, in an interview with Tom Brokow, regarding the complexity of the mortgage market and the securitization process by which mortgages are sold to investors, "We have over-complexity. Securitization is putting [mortgages in] tranches and selling them all over the world, and that is the risk." On another Sunday morning show, host Chris Wallace said of Paulson, "[He] will accept some provision to let people to renegotiate mortgage to stay in the home or other huge packages. But there will be a Main Street renegotiation in this bill because we are scared of the consequences."
I believe there will be major changes in the mortgage market in America. It will be globalized and changed to the same kind of feudalistic structure that the Europeans and Commonwealth countries have. According to my research, America's move to feudalism is in the process of being finalized. The backbone of the middle class is home ownership, which includes the property the building stands on. I believe that the new system will change America's entire mortgage structure to leasehold, a system used all over Europe. As a leaseholder, individuals will pay a monthly rent to the owner of the property that their house is built upon. There will be a total restructuring of property rights in America to fit our new third world status. All of the rights of property ownership will be changed forever' gone with the wind. If you don't have a mortgage, you do not need to worry.
The need to pass massive legislation by Monday morning, or Friday afternoon the latest, is indicative of the high stakes of what will change and the assets that are about to transfer from the American taxpayer to the Federal Reserve. Congress is being blackmailed. The Treasury Blueprint lays this all out.
Thirdly, President Bush tried to recommend a flat tax in 2003. At the same time, I wrote an extensive article, concerning his proposal. The truth of the matter is, if you are going to have a global currency, it will be necessary to have a global tax. America is the only country NOT to have a tax on services or a Value Added Tax-VAT. The repercussions of this takeover of America is that our cities, states and federal government are bankrupt. One of the ways to ?bail us out? is to create an 'Infrastructure Corps' similar to the various programs Roosevelt created in the 1930s. The cost will be absorbed through a VAT tax. Obama has already alluded to the 'Infrastructure Corps' and he has talked about a capital gains tax on the sale of property.
Lastly, from Sunday's talk shows, it appears that New York City Mayor Richard Bloomberg will head up the newly proposed Resolution Trust Corporation. We are being given major promises about how fair it will be. However, if history is any indication, we will receive nothing and end up holding the bag for the worthless paper that supports the assets. The bottom line is that you and I have always gotten the crumbs from the table, if congress does not approve what the Feds are telling us is the solution, we will not even have the crumbs. We are no longer in America but AmeriKa. It is time to hit our knees and repent for our own sins and ask God for His mercy to save us.
