2 videos, 3 minutes total: 1) Hillary Clinton collapses leaving 9/11 event, feet dragging, metal piece falling out of pant leg. 2) Hillary claims no US President (or candidate) should ever speak of Fed policy: Learn monetary reform & public banking worth $1,000,000 for each US family or continue debt-slavery forever

38-second video: Clinton physically collapses leaving a 9/11 event (18-minute video with analysis). Please note that she cannot raise her feet; she is dragged into the van:

Perhaps more importantly, OBVIOUS War Criminal, lying, and looting Hillary Clinton (and here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, including admonition Trump is US .01%’s Right arm puppet) claimed this week that no US President or candidate should ever talk about Federal Reserve policy because the mechanics of the US economy are damaged by talking about them.

Two-minute video of Hillary Clinton’s fear-mongering (bullshit is the correct academic term) to manipulate voters, despite Obama doing exactly what she claims no president should ever do:

As you just watched, Clinton claims that US Presidents or candidates should never try “to talk up or talk down the economy,” or “malign” the Fed. CNBC reporters then enforce fear that monetary mechanics are inherently vulnerable to talking about them.

This article will:

  • Contrast this tragic-comic lie that REAL MECHANICS are vulnerable to talk (think about talking to your street light affecting when it should turn on) with the…
  • OBVIOUS SOLUTIONS of real mechanics that solve all recognized economic problems, and have been documented as obvious since Benjamin Franklin about colonial Pennsylvania operating its government without taxes. The value of these solutions are conservatively and easily calculated to ~$1,000,000 per average US household.

Real mechanics work independent of what you say, sing, whisper, or shout

Setting aside the serious topic of how human thoughts and emotions can affect our reality, let’s consider mechanics as with engineering:

Machinery is designed to perform specific work, like your refrigerator, car, and door knob. Their mechanics operate no matter your mood or what you say to them. Test this if you’re unsure: talk to your refrigerator and see what difference it makes to its mechanical performance.

Clinton claims that this kind of mechanics is not what Federal Reserve monetary policy is. She claims that the Fed’s mechanics are so weak that talk and fear damage their effectiveness.

Those of us working for monetary reform and public banking absolutely refute this claim. We easily explain, document and prove that the existing system is the opposite of real monetary mechanics: the Fed is a manipulated system designed to parasitize wealth from the people not through money, but by creating its opposite: debt owed to the owners of a privately-owned .01% banking system.

If you want to understand how something works in objective reality, as you know, observe its mechanics.

OBVIOUS SOLUTIONS: Data, discussion

The top three benefits each of monetary reform and public banking total ~$1,000,000 for the average American household, and would be received nearly instantly. Fed Chair Janet Yellen publicly acknowledges monetary reform as described below, but continues a history of criminal fraud in her lawful fiduciary responsibility to truthfully provide what you’re about to read. The data below include evidence of a .01% oligarchy criminally looting tens of trillions of our dollars.

Monetary reform is the creation of debt-free money by government for the direct payment of public goods and services. Creating money as a positive number is an obvious move from our existing Robber Baron-era system of only creating debt owed to privately-owned banks (a negative number) as what we use for money. Our Orwellian “non-monetary supply” of adding negative numbers forever causes today’s tragic-comic increasing and unpayable total debt. You learned these mechanics of positive and negative numbers in middle school, and already have the education and life experience to conclude with Emperor’s New Clothes absolute certainty that accelerating total debt is the opposite of having money. As a National Board Certified and Advanced Placement Macroeconomics teacher, I affirm this is also exactly what is taught to all economics students.

The public benefits of reversing this creature of Robber Barons are game-changing and near-instant. We the People must demand these, as .01% oligarchs have no safe way to do so without admission of literal criminal fraud by claiming that debt is its opposite of money.

The top 3 game-changing benefits of monetary reform:

  1. We pay the national debt in proportion to removing private banks’ ability to create what we use for money as debt in order to prevent inflation. We retire national debt forever.
  2. We fully fund infrastructure that returns more economic output than investment cost for triple upgrades: the best infrastructure we can imagine, up to full-employment, and lower overall costs.
  3. We stop the ongoing Robber Barons who McKinsey’s Chief Economist documents having ~$30 TRILLION in tax havens, and the Fed finding the US top seven banks creating shell companies to hide $10 trillion. This amount is about 30 times needed to end all global poverty, which has killed more people since 1995 than all wars and violence in all human history.

Public banking creates at-cost and in-house credit to pay for public goods and services without the expense and for-profit interest of selling debt-securities. North Dakota has a public bank for at-cost credit that results in it being the only state with annual increasing surpluses rather than deficits.

Top 3 game-changing benefits of public banking:

  1. a state-owned bank could abundantly fund all state programs and eliminate all taxes with just a 5% mortgage and credit card.
  2. a state-owned bank could create in-house and at-cost credit to fund infrastructure. This cuts nominal costs in half because, as you know, selling debt securities typically doubles the cost. For example, where I live we’re still dismantling the old Bay Bridge in NoCal from the upgrade that cost $6 billion, but the debt-service costs will add another $6 billion when it’s all paid.
  3. CAFRs (Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports) stash “rainy day” funds no longer required with a credit line from a public bank. In addition, the so-called “retirement funds” currently deliver net returns of just a few percent on good years, and negative returns on bad years (herehere). California’s ~14,000 various government entities’ CAFRs have a sampled-data total estimate of $8 trillion in surplus taxpayer assets ($650,000 non-disclosed assets per household, among California’s ~12.5 million households).

$1,000,000 of benefits per US household:

  • California’s CAFR data of ~$650,000 of assets per household is evidence of huge cash assets of similar magnitude in every state.
  • Paying the US national debt of ~$18 trillion saves ~$180,000 per household.
  • Ending state taxes in California to pay a budget of ~$170 billion saves each household ~$15,000, with similar savings in every state.
  • ~$30,000 per household savings annually: the American public would no longer pay over $400 billion every year for national debt interest payments (because almost 30% of the debt is intra-governmental transfers, this is a savings of ~$300 billion/year). If lending is run at a non-profit rate or at nominal interest returned to the American public (for infrastructure, schools, fire and police protection, etc.) rather than profiting the banks, the savings to the US public is conservatively $2 trillion (1). If the US Federal government increased the money supply by 3% a year to keep up with population increase and economic growth, we could spend an additional $500 billion yearly into public programs, or refund it as a public dividend (2). This savings would allow us to simplify or eliminate the income tax (3). The estimated savings of eliminating the income tax with all its complexity, loopholes, and evasion is $250 billion/year (4). The total benefits for monetary reform are conservatively over three trillion dollars every year to the American public. Three trillion is $3,000,000,000,000. This saves the ~100 million US households an average of $30,000 every year. Another way to calculate the savings is to figure those amounts per $50,000 annual household income (for example, if your household earns $100,000/year, you save ~$60,000 every year with these reforms). This savings represents a 60% raise for every US household’s income.
  • Related, if the ~$30 trillion hidden in tax havens by the .01% have $10-$15 trillion from Americans, and we count the Federal Reserve report that the US top seven banks have over $10 trillion stored, then the average US household could clawback ~$200,000 to ~$250,000.

Famous Americans already on record for these reforms:

Please understand that I represent likely hundreds of thousands of professionals making factual claims with objective evidence anyone with a high school-level of education can verify.

The Emperor’s New Clothes obvious pathway out of these mechanics of our “debt system” is to start creating debt-free money (a positive number) for the direct payment of public goods and services, and create public credit for at-cost loans (a negative number). I have three academic papers to walk any reader through these facts; an assignment for high school economics students, one for Advanced Placement Macroeconomics students, and a paper for the Claremont Colleges’ recent academic conference:

Teaching critical thinking to high school students: Economics research/presentation

Debt-damned economics: either learn monetary reform, or kiss your assets goodbye

Seizing an alternative: Bankster looting: fundamental fraud that “debt” is “money”

Let’s examine just some of the facts of the current US economy that demonstrates its criminal status:

For Americans still zombiefied to “believe” in America, please embrace the reality that 40% of US children live at least one year of their lives in under-measured poverty, while oligarchs most responsible literally laugh in grandiose glee of the poverty they euphemise as “income inequality.” Please absorb this 1-minute reality check:

More game-changing economic data that confirm what we receive for economic leadership is literal criminal fraud:

15-minute video of obvious solutions: Mark Anielski and Ellen Brown’s powerful 15-minute response to an interview at the Seizing an Alternative conference (and here, with videos here) with former World Bank economist Herman Daly and co-author John B. Cobb of For the Common Good (video should start at 1:04:43):

81-minute interview with Byron Dale and Greg Soderberg of WealthMoney.org (the three of us have combined over 90 years of research on this topic):


1) Of $60 trillion total debt, a conservative current interest cost of 5% is $3 trillion every year. Two trillion dollars of savings if the profits are transferred to the American public rather than to the banking industry is probably low. St. Louis Federal Reserve Bank: https://research.stlouisfed.org/fred2/series/TCMDO

2) The US GDP is ~$17 trillion. Three percent growth is moderately conservative.

3) Of the US Federal government’s ~$4 trillion annual budget, about $1.7 trillion is received from income tax.

    Money, like God, is a conceptual object without concrete

    The value of any object is reflected in the violence that will be called upon
    in defense of, or in acquisition of it, as an indication of the intensity of
    the motivating belief in it.

    When belief in a currency disappears, no one values it nor will they exchange
    anything of intrinsic value for it.

    I would not exchange an apple for the 100 dollars equivalent in the currency of
    a failed state.

    No reasonable person would.

      I’d like to offer some economic mechanics for public consideration, Club, although nearly unimaginable in our current illegal, parasitic, fraudulent system using humans as work animals to engorge a .01% class of wanna-be slave masters. Regarding your first three paragraphs:

      1. Money has existence in its supply, and value as a countable object to facilitate creation and management of goods and services.

      2. Humanity’s victory ends all the violence we see today. We won’t need taxes in an economy with unleashed technology, monetary reform, and public banking, as the essay points to.

      3. Yes, nobody should “believe” in the psychopaths’ enslavement system to place us in debt to them. That said, the unimaginable is mechanically available: transparent money and credit that requires no “belief”, only appreciation of mechanics in professional work to optimize trade and creation of goods and services. This, of course, will require a “clean house” before anyone should hope for its implementation.

      I appreciate your education, Club: we need strong “defense” to document our slavery today, and “offense” to demonstrate the brighter future available whenever we’re able to end the criminal super-fascist state.

  • diogenes

    Yes. How?

    • Carl_Herman

      How to implement, you mean?

      Or, how can Hillary recover so she can use her immense political experience to lead our great nation to spread democracy, build upon President Obama’s economic recovery, and show diversity to a world that should hold itself up to America’s standards of freedom?

      Just kidding about the second one 🙂

    I think they should get Ricky Bobby to be Hillary’s replacement. I’m serious. That way they’d have two actors (Hillary and Obama) being replaced by another actor. If they got him to run against Trump he’d probably win by a landslide. The whole political thing is a joke anyway, so why not have someone like Ricky Bobby to be Prez and make it even more of a joke than it already is. He’d probably have everybody smiling all the time.
