Did You Ever Get The Funny Feeling...
That there's a lot more to economic and political reality than you've been told?
That what's really going on isn't being televised? That maybe the very best place to hide anything is on TV?
Perhaps you've seen the movie The Truman Show? Remember how Truman discovered the back door? I found mine in 1978 when I was fortunate to learn the true basis of our monetary system. It literally changed the course of the rest of my life.
Turns out there is an entire bookshelf of need-to-know information about real history (like, what actually happened?), criminal politics (pretty much the only kind these days) and voodoo economics that they apparently keep forgetting to tell everyone about in public school so we can all be prepared to live in the real world.
They didn't teach me this stuff in public school many years ago, and I know they still don't teach it today, because I have children in public school right now.
I should point out that they don't teach the really important stuff in college either, not for the largest of student loans. Which, incidentally, can no longer be discharged in bankruptcy. When you owe student loans to the banks you owe them for life.
SIDEBAR: When did this change to the bankruptcy statues occur? Under the presidency of William Jefferson Clinton who made this gift to the banks in appreciation for campaign contributions. Robert Rubin left his position as CEO of Goldman Sachs to serve as Clinton's Secretary of the Treasury. When Rubin left that post he returned to Goldman. Incidentally, that is not a negative remark about Democrats. The Republicans are equally corrupt. But I digress...
The result of a childhood spent at the receiving end of a bureaucratically orchestrated education is that gaping holes remain in your understanding of real history which, although it never repeats, does rhyme.
As a result the young adult finds him or herself stepping off of the moving educational walkway after twelve long years of assessment-monitored, fact-regurgitation processing, into a world for which they are as philosophically unprepared as I was at that tender age.
The result? We enter adulthood prepared to register for Selective Service, vote, serve as a juror, work, pay taxes, go into debt, try to save, start a family, etc., while remaining largely uninformed about (and dare I say, oblivious to) those issues of most critical importance to the consequences of our missing freedoms; issues that go to the very heart of our financial survival and even pose serious threats to our health and longevity.
Without ever learning the truth about what came before, and lacking the perspective or context within which to understand those historical forces which continue to this very day driving events forward according to their own agenda, we are left wondering what happened to our money, our retirement, our health, our nation, even our peace of mind.
If this troubles you, I understand. I was institutionally educated too.
Our humble academy was founded in the tradition of great (and really expensive!) preparatory schools everywhere: to prepare you, of course.
Yet here is where we take the extra pedagogical step, and it's a big one! We suggest that you abjure further attempts at social and cultural conditioning, encourage your children, loved ones (and anyone who will listen) to start thinking for yourself and asking truly annoying questions on topics like these:
How could Abraham Lincoln have been such a 'Great Emancipator' and flaming hypocrite (and I might even add), racist at the same time?
"... I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and... while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race." - Abraham Lincoln
Abe Lincoln is featured on the front of the penny. But every coin has two sides. With that hint in mind, which of the following national leaders had troops in uniform smash the printing presses of newspaper editors critical of his administration, had legislators arrested and held in windowless cells without bail or legal counsel so they couldn't vote against him, even sent soldiers, unsuccessfully as fate would have it, to arrest the highest member of the judicial branch for defying him?
a. Adolph Hitler
b. Saddam Hussein
c. Vladimir Putin
d. Abraham Lincoln
Try as I might I can't recall any of this actual history ever being mentioned during all my years of public schooling. You'd think the history textbooks were referring to a parallel universe because, apparently, none of these things ever occurred in our own.
Why did delegates to the 1787 Philadelphia convention that drafted America's Constitution (the one that guarantees us a free and open society?), bar the doors, shutter the windows, meet on the second floor to thwart eavesdropping and swear an oath of lifetime silence among themselves until the last one had died? What did they have to hide?
And why did George Washington take James Madison's handwritten notes on the convention back to his private residence in Virginia and squirrel them away so no one could read them?
Why did Thomas Paine write to newly elected President Washington accusing him of behaving as if he were the new King of America for riding around in elegant carriages adorned with decorative plumes and pulled by white horses?
And what's with that engraving of Washington in full Masonic regalia officiating over the construction of the monument bearing his name, and why a towering obelisk, anyway? Wouldn't a life size statue have sufficed? Perhaps a nice plaque? And why does it precisely replicate ancient Egyptian occult obelisks?
While we're at it, why are the major roads in Washington, D.C. laid out in a perfect pentagram?
See where I'm going here? Now please don't think for a second that I'm a conspiracy theorist. Heavens, no! I'm just a guy who looks around, sees big chunks of missing information and asks questions.
Let me assure you that the answers to these questions (available in books!) puts the real, hidden history of the founding of America, and the reasons leading up to today's impending economic collapse, in a very clear, and very bright light.
Knowing this history makes it a breeze to survive (economically speaking) what's coming. Why? Because it has already happened before, and for the same reasons! I can say this with confidence only because human nature has not changed one iota as far back as history records.
Our dear Constitution (still the supreme law of the land) requires at Article I, Section X that the states use "...no thing except gold and silver in payment of debts." Requires, mind you!
So what are all these green debt-based Federal Reserve Notes from a private banking cartel doing in circulation, and what's up with that creepy seeing-eye pyramid?
And why does the reverse of the dollar bill tell us to trust in God for its purchasing power? Can't we trust in Congress? After all, we did elect them to represent us and not the banker.
Pretty juicy stuff, right?
Sigh. Yes, and this is the type of 'need to know' information that your high school history teacher (track coach?) apparently forgot to tell you about. I'm shocked that you can pay the equivalent of one year's future salary not to be taught this stuff at even the most prestigious institutions of higher learning. Harvard, Princeton and Yale all come to mind.
And what's up with our nation's pulpits? Where are our clergy when we really need them? I beg your pardon, I forgot. Today's churches are for the most part IRS approved, tax-exempt organizations.
There's a little IRS bird perched high above the altar, keeping a close eye on everything that's said. Cross the line, and away goes the preferential tax treatment.
Funny, I can think of at least one pretty brave guy who spoke out against big government a couple thousand years ago. A simple carpenter, as I recall, who criticized the empire, resisted the bankers and was even a big tax protester!
They started an entire church around him. Today that church asks for permission to speak the truth. Speaking of telling the truth, I'm sure that last paragraph lost me a few thousands readers!
And In Conclusion...
Since you're still with me, Dear Reader, I can only image that you're either fascinated and somewhat curious to know more, or entirely horrified at what a nut job I turned out to be.
If the latter, I refer you to the CIABCNNBCBS news network and The (Almost) History Channel for your regularly scheduled programming.
If the former (meaning I'm not quite as nuts as I look), I invite you to join me in acquiring the knowledge and, hopefully, the wisdom and understanding to put it all into perspective.
Otherwise you too could be left wandering through a philosophical wilderness, like Diogenes looking for an honest man, wondering what the heck happened to your retirement, your health, your freedoms, your nation, even your peace of mind.
