What debate?

September 27, 2008

Okay.  So we’ve seen the first Presidential debate.  It was disturbing to me on fundamental levels.  So let’s look at the real picture and get to the truth of it.


Let’s strip away the fear tactics employed by both.  Let’s also strip away the posturing and pandering.  It is not productive to focus on those things.  Both were guilty of the offenses.  Let’s also ignore the bigotry of race, age and gender.  Although McCain’s age and health are a bit of an issue in that the consideration of Palin as president should not be totally discounted given that she is a religious zealot and a book burner at heart.  But golly gee, isn’t she just cute as a button?


We come off the most irresponsible presidency in history.  I still maintain that Bush has ancestral ties to the elite bankers, is a war monger, profiteer, and liar and may have ruined us beyond repair.  This must be obvious to all with a brain by now.  This is at an end.  There is no punishment too great for Bush, Chaney and the rest of the Neocons.  And for now I will suppress my desire to bring them to account.


We are in a political race to see who will replace him and that is what this is about.  It is gratifying that many have rejected his new fear tactics (economic terrorism) and refused to be stampeded into a massive fiscal lunacy with no accountability.  Bush has always considered himself to be above the law, but we are not buying it this time.  Unfortunately both candidates are looking to implement some sort of bailout (now called rescue) of the flawed system which is doomed to a well deserved although painful collapse.


So we want change.  It is the message that both candidates are hammering on.  Obama uses it as a campaign slogan, and McCain claims to be the real instrument of change.  Unfortunately both are proposing changes and neither is stepping up to the bat for any meaningful change.


So let’s look at the philosophies and proposals of the runners.  It is basic ideology and offers no real change whatsoever.  McCain presents himself as a true Conservative and Obama presents the standard Liberal counter arguments. 


Simplistically we are back to the same old choices.  It does not bode well.


McCain is correct that the previous executive has been spending like there is no tomorrow, and thanks to that he may be right.  There is no tomorrow.


McCain proposes the end of this irresponsible spending, but from a conservative perspective, he still believes that the rich need to get richer and the trickle down concept of Reagonomics is still a good idea.


Obama says that he wants to change the formula to the standard liberal position that a big powerful government is needed to support the little guy and that will be the magic key to financial prosperity.


They are both dead wrong. 


Their traditional arguments are also quite flawed and self contradictory.  McCain wants to cut spending, but cannot let go of the idea that we are the world’s police force.  That contradicts the idea that we want smaller government.  It is empire building on a global scale.  The simple lie of McCain is that we are fighting for freedom.  Ultimately we are fighting for two reasons.  One is to get control of the oil reserves, and the second reason is because loaning money by the privately owned central banks to governments to pay for war creates the debt on which bankers collect interest.  It is the biggest source for profits to the central banks.  And connected as the various member central banks are to the BIS (Bank for International Settlements) they can move money around in a hidden manner which is known only to them.  Wars are about profits to the central bank war mongers which they collect by making money out of thin air, and loan to governments at interest. 


If you define terrorism as using terror as a tactic, then our own government is the biggest terrorist on the planet and we are their victims.  How much will they continue to keep pounding away on us with the same message in order to manipulate us into sending soldiers into battle in the name of freedom, when at the heart of the matter, it is about profits?


If you really care about our brave soldiers, then stop sending them into war for profit.


Obama wants to manage spending but certainly not reduce it, lest he would let go of the liberal concept that government is the answer to everything.  They only way to fix the financial problems we are facing is to dump the debt based monetary system which is the true root cause of the problems.  He like McCain is promoting the same wars for the same reasons.


It seems to me that either approach tries to fix the problem by continuing with one version or another of business as usual, be it a liberal definition or a conservative version.  But what we really need is to fix the basic economic flaws based on the Central banks’ self serving debt based scam, which cannot do anything but fail in the long run.


George Bush may is guilty of placing himself above the law, but that is nothing compared to what the central banks under the BIS are doing.   They answer to no one and control the bogus monetary system which cannot continue.


I am an American currently living in Fiji.  Fiji is a small island country out in the middle of the South Pacific Ocean.  But living here for the last four years has giving me a perspective which I would not have, had I spent the time immersed in the propaganda machine at work in the U.S.


The infrastructure here is not all that strong compared to the U.S.   I have had to watch the debate in segments on YouTube.  But I want to share with you a perspective from outside.  The United States has lost the respect of much of the rest of the world.


As this financial crisis in the U.S. has unfolded, I am met with people who think that the U.S. is getting what it deserves.  They believe that the U.S. is an evil in the world and have little sympathy for our financial woes.


It hasn’t always been this way.  But something has changed in the world.  They do not think that the U.S. should continue its pursuit of becoming an empire.  That is how we are viewed.  They actually want us to fail in this regard.  And Fiji is not an enemy of ours.  This is how our friends are feeling about us.


They are not happy about the military base we are building here.  The local views of the world condition make the U.S. seem like fools to them.  I spend a lot of time trying to explain to them that the U.S. people are not like our government.  But it is a tough sell.  They can’t understand how we can be so out of touch with reality.  They actually laugh at us.


When it comes to the Presidential race in the U.S., they simply don’t care.  They find it of little importance.  We are no longer perceived as the hope of democracy and freedom.  And can you blame them for this?  We have been on a downward slide for decades.  We have consistently demonstrated our hypocrisy.


When I was young I was quite ignorant about this.  As a child, I remember asking an adult to explain the national debt to me.  I was told that it was of no consequence and that I shouldn’t worry about it.


As I grew older, I also remember wondering why our enemies hated us so much.   What had we ever done to them?  Well now I know.  We are hated because we have adopted imperialism as our central philosophy without regard for human life.


As I listen to both candidates, I can see that neither of them is saying anything to counter this view held by our fellow humans in the world.


Although I certainly find fault with the administration of the last eight years, the roots of this goes back much further.  We were once a great and noble nation, but we are not any more.  This has been a slow process.  We are like the frog in the boiling water.  The frog will try and jump out of the pot if thrown into boiling water, but if the frog is put into cool water and it is heated slowly enough, he falls asleep and eventually boils to death without a struggle or even an awareness of what is happening to him.


We need to wise up and look at ourselves historically.  This is something which can’t be fixed by any quick fixes.  Our survival depends on our ability to use our brains and to know the truth.


To get a feel of what is the REAL causes of our troubles today let us look at some history and statements by great statesmen of the past:




“There is something behind the throne greater than the king himself.”

                                                 — Sir William Pitt, House of Lords 1770


“The world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes.”

— Benjamin Disraeli, English statesman 1884


“The real truth of the matter is that a financial element in the large centers has owned the government since the days of Andrew Jackson.”

–Franklin D. Roosevelt, US President 1933


“I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous than standing armies…  If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of currency…The banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of their property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.”

–Thomas Jefferson 1743-1826


“If you want to remain slaves of the bankers and pay the costs of your own slavery, let them continue to create money and control the nation’s credit.”

–Sir Josiah Stamp 1880 – 1941


Woodrow Wilson who was president when the Federal Reserve Act was signed into law later wrote in regret:


“(Our) great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit.  Our system of credit is privately concentrated.  The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men… who necessarily, by very reason of their own limitations, chill and check and destroy genuine economic freedom.


We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world – no government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and the duress of small groups of dominant men.”


Congressman Louis McFadden also expressed the truth after the passage of the bill. As follows:


“A world banking system was being set up here…a super state controlled by international bankers…acting together to enslave the world for their own pleasure.  The FED has usurped the government.”


Following the crash of 1929 and with the creation of the Great Depression, Congressman Charles Lindberg wrote:


“Under the federal reserve act, panics are scientifically created.  The present panic (1929) is the first scientifically created one, worked out as we figure a mathematical equation.”


After the stock market crash of 1929 and the creation of the great depression congressman Lewis McFadden who had long opposed the FRS began bringing impeachment proceedings against them saying of the crash and the great depression:


“It was a carefully contrived occurrence.  International Bankers sought to bring about a condition of despair, so that they might emerge the rulers of us all.”


After two previous assassination attempts, McFadden was poisoned at a banquet before he could push for the impeachment.


Why does this sound familiar?


Assassination to stop the Central Bank called the Federal Reserve.  Who would do a thing like that?  But on the other hand, who wanted to stop a profitable war in Viet Nam?  Who wanted to put us back on the gold standard which would effectively stop the Federal Reserve in its absolute control of our money system?


John F. Kennedy, President of the U.S. was assassinated in Dallas.


So we watch the candidates’ debate.  The cause of our woes is not even hinted at.  The “Rescue” plan is just another manifestation of the central bankers’ absolute control and manipulation.  Remember that the Federal Reserve System was created and still owned by private bankers.  This is a repeat of history.  It is nothing new.  It is just a human tragedy repeated exactly the same way as was done before by the same people.


The result has been the loss of what was once a great nation.  It didn’t start with Bush.  He was just the final maniac at the helm.  We have got to put a stop to this once and for all, what ever it takes, and the only way is the collapse of the system.


Do not go along with the bail out.  Letting it collapse is the only way we will ever be free.


We need to save the biosphere.  We are running out of time.  As the winter chills the world, you may be concerned about heating oil.  Some have jokingly said that the global warming may be a good thing.  It will warm things up.  But the scientific fact is that the ice caps are melting, island countries are being lost to rising waters.  When the balance of fresh water to salt water is disrupted, we will see a continuation of the deterioration of our weather system.  And a new ice age will be upon us.  The scientists who are saying this have no reason to lie about it.  I wish the same were true of the bankers and politicians.
