We’ve Become a Government “Of  The Bankers, By The Bankers, And For The Bankers”

Huffington Post editor Roy Sekoff told Ed Schultz today:

“[The government has become] “Of the bankers, for the bankers, and by the bankers.”

I agree, and said the same thing in February.

    This is an unfortunate oversimplification we should expect from those whose focus is -far too economic, Friedrich Engels.Yes, our government is sensitive to bankers.Our government is also sensitive to the military industrial complex, the auto industry and their labor groups, the legal lobby, the many medical lobbies -and- a myriad of education lobbies too.Even foreign governments hold sway over our government.The list goes on and on. The list reads like a tally of what are commonly referred to as -good old boys. What they have in common is -lots of money and -an ability known to bring down individual politicians when they are singled out for destruction.In short, that government that gets in the way -least- in front of those who are the most powerful -governs longest, surest and most profitably.We have a tendency to elect cowardly, little yes-man worms that -line their own pockets -out of a desperate insecurity -that comes with knowing -how our Republic really works.Those MANY, CONFUSED, PROLIFIC,AND MENTALLY-DROOLING 18th Century philosophers, men like Voltaire, Rousseau, and Kant -who expounded the universal rights of man, notions of inalienable rights, -and- fanciful categorical imperatives -did NO ONE one any favors -but the rich, powerful -and- RUTHLESS.Having been tutored in Aristotle's categories and methodologies, -and- having fancifully thought those matters through to their witless and fruitless ends, -those who plague humanity -now- are all would-be Alexanders.This is who the guillotine was invented for, and these many Alexanders who would conquer the world at ANY expense.Supermen, my ass. Their heads roll into the basket just as easy as anyone's, -thumpk!And listen to the crowds cheer that.

    The bankers don't have the power of the people. There's a day of recompense for those who so abuse power.

    If it were only "government of the bankers, by the bankers, for the bankers", it would be less problematic that actually it is. It is also government of, by, and for the Israel, drug, insurance and arms lobbies as well. Ask yourself why it is that we are simultaneously involved in military undertakings in Aghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, and are threatening Iran with war almost hourly. Is it purely because of American interests do you think? Every self-deceived eighteen year old in rural Kentucky signing up for a hitch in "Eye-raq" and encouraged both by the Army and his pastor at "First Babdis" to believe this actually might but if you do, you need a change of emetics, trust me. The truth is that AIPAC has either (1) bought off the Congressmen that are sending them there or (2) has so frightened these whoring little weasels that they might support their opponent in the next election, that about every week some new resolution treatening Iran with destruction emerges from Washington with 95% majorities. Why only Joe Stalin might be capable of duplicating a fete like that. Ladies and gentlemen your kids are dying in foreign countries to defend the interests of a foreign nuclear power, one that treats us like garbage by spying on us. And at the same time you are working to fatten the paychecks of the self-indulgent pigs in big business enterprizes, the very ones that just outsourced your job to India or Obamia. News flash: None of this stops until you are ready to take to the streets and simultaneously paralyze every workplace in this country. Only then will you be able to turn your attention to the filth that governs you in league with these bacteria and recover your democracy.Andrei Vyshinsky

    Here's an important story that leaked yesterday. And then quite profoundly -it was immediately pushed off the front page and out of sight. So -do not be surprised if you missed it. It's a nightmare come to fruition.http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE6065MK20100107"U.S. regulators on Thursday urged banks to protect themselves against hikes in interest rates, which could threaten the easy earnings that have helped heal the banking system during the credit crunch.""helped heal" -OMFG! These people never learn.If the fed is contemplating raising rates, possibly even, if the fed is running for the exits to slam the door shut on inflation, they no doubt are running away from something inescapable -something they have finally seen coming up behind us all in the rear-view window.This isn't your typical inflation, as the gutted economy would not support it.This is more likely -shortages due to inflationary pressure and expectations. Simply put, the world's producers can't deliver anything anymore -because they are losing money even as they do deliver.My view is that had the fed raised interest rates at the moment of the collapse, we'd be done with the TBTFs and over with the problem of all these heinous credit-crooks by now. It's the same problem for the producers. Their creditors are putting the squeeze to them. They're in default too.Yes, it would be a world with a different landscape, were the fed to have taken an aggressive approach to the problem of all these disease-transmitting purveyors of debt.But it is a world with a different landscape -anyway- given the asinine Wimpy-bailout course the fed did choose to take.And far and away, the cowardly Wimpy-fed has chosen the worse of those two possible worlds by simply delaying the inevitable and prolonging the downturn, inevitably -letting everything slip deeper beneath the rolling and breaking waves of a vast and rising depression.And now they are -forced- to raise interest rates. God save us all!As interest rates rise, many more ships will be sunk and slip beneath the waves of this stormy sea.Good riddance to them all too, finally!When I was a kid, there was a cartoon character named "Wimpy" in the Popeye cartoons. Wimpy represented the person who bought things with credit in our society.Wimpy's line was, "I will gladly pay you Tuesday, for a hamburger today."http://tinyurl.com/yep9toxWell, my children, -NOW you pay. Get used to your depression, Mr. Obama, because the dust and tumbleweed are going to blow through all your towns now."It's a Wonderful Life" is a Christmas fairy tale, kids. No one is going to bail us out of this Wimpy-mess.The whole country is made of Wimpys now.Hey, Wimpy! Wanna help the economy -and buy a house? Wanna buy a car? Wanna buy some appliances, too? How bouts an education for all the dummy-Wimpys?Those days are over, debt-fools.

    Today the true seat of Power in Washington is the “Invisible Government”, which exercises its total control from behind the scenes. Who is this Invisible Government? It is a small elite group of individuals who own and control the Giant International Banks and Corporations, and who exercise their control through the Military-Industrial Complex. Through their foundations and organizations, like the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and the Trilateral Commission, they train and groom those who would be the “movers and shakers” of both U.S. political parties; in other words, they own and control the Republican and Democratic parties. This criminal cabal of power elites, banks, corporations, government officials, and the mainstream media have effectively destroyed our economy, and the foundation of constitutional government which we have taken for granted. These evil people have stolen the wealth of the US Treasury whilst exploiting the power and might of the US Military to achieve their agenda. Meanwhile, corrupt government officials continue to pass unconstitutional laws to the benefit of themselves and the elite. They believe our Constitution and Laws don’t pertain to them. It is imperative everyone know that both political parties are controlled by the “Invisible Government”, and that our presidential election is a fraud between their two preselected candidates. Their “man” always wins.Realize this: If the Republicans or the Democrats could have fixed this nation, they would have done it long before now. The more you look, the more you see that both major U.S. political parties are dominated and controlled by this “Invisible Government”. Both major U.S. political parties do NOT work for, nor do they represent "We the People"; but instead represent the the global elitists; the super-rich foundations; the NGO's; the global bankers; the global corporations; and the lobbyists. Bankrolled by the Rothschild money dynasty (principal owners of the federal reserve banks), they have emerged as our present day aristocracy, the “ruling elite families” which includes generations of Rockefellers, Kennedys, and the Bush family; perennial “intellectuals” like Kissinger, Rumsfeld, Cheney, Albright, Christopher, and Rubin; all the members of the “Council on Foreign Relations” and the “Trilateral Commission”; and all of the one-time and/or yearly attendees at the annual “Bilderberg” conference. – cont……

    cont…… – 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 13.0 Trillion dollar National Debt (and climbing). In only his first year in office, President Obama has added to the debt a staggering 2 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) = 730,000,000,000.00A Million dollars a day for 2,000 Years, and you don't even have 3/4 of a Trillion dollars.

    Harry Reid may have pulled a supreme Mitt Romney FLIP FLOP on us all, but, there is SOMETHING YOU CAN DO!

    CONTACT Sen. Harry Reid on H.R. 459′s Passage (327-98) – TODAY!

    I did! Here is the text of my message (you may copy/paste in an email to H. Reid):

    “I was just informed, that the House voted, 327-98, on H.R. 459, & AUDIT THE ‘FED’ passed! I was also just informed, that ‘Sen. HARRY REID is refusing to put Audit the Fed up for a vote in the Senate.’ And, to ‘Please contact his office today and tell him to support AUDIT THE ‘FED’ and allow for a Senate vote!’

    327-98, Senator, is a CLEAR MAJORITY. THE PEOPLE have spoken. Question: Do you represent THE PEOPLE? I noticed, that in 1995, you spoke openly FOR an AUDIT OF THE ‘FED’ – of course, the need for such an audit has not changed since then – why has your stance (on this issue) changed? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fn1u3yDjhN4

    CONTACT SEN. HARRY REID TODAY ON THIS ISSUE!
    (Feel free to Copy and Paste the message above, if you wish)
