dangerDecades of spendthrift, emotional freewheeling and easy credit-card availability has brought the world’s economies prostrating on its knees before central banks and government treasuries.

Many wondered if this was a conspiratorially engineered financial apocalypse designed to bring about the long cherished global monetary architecture which has been the vision of The Learned Elders of Zion.

Or was this part of the realignment of global socioeconomic assets on the part of those who are still manipulating the processes which will align the whole world into (ONE) monetary union, (ONE) autocratic political union and (ONE) damnable religious union?

Whatever analysis is arrived at, “one” thing is sure – the world’s financial markets will never be the same again.

Just as 9/11 changed the geopolitical landscape forever at the turn of the New Millennium; last year October the world changed forever with the collapse of the world’s Stock Markets. While many Americans will remember the SAVINGS & LOANS debacle of the 1970′s and we see what is going on right now in the market – some of us agree that this is probably the largest HEIST* in world banking history.

Think about this for a moment – we are fighting (2) wars to the tune of billions of dollars per month – who is profiting from these wars? If you answered the “BANKERS ” – then you are correct. But there’s one qualifier. Companies like Raytheon*and Bombardier*are the military munitions companies who earn billions for the bank’s coffers which is then in turn reinvested into the war effort.

Look back at past history and you will realize that after every major conflict came a boom in the world economy.

What the bankers and the government did not envision was the lurking scepter of casino-type gambling derivatives debt which would unfold in an avalanche of monetary toxicity that would spread like a massive virus throughout the world markets destroying economies, industries and the livelihoods of countless millions of hardworking, industrious individuals.

So on 10/10/08 the talking “Heads” of the G7 of all the world’s major financial institutions rallied in a historic convocation of Biblical proportions to arrest the free-fall of the world’s financial markets and to stem the tide of systemic panic, paranoia and pugnacious decline. Again in April ’09, these same talking-heads will meet in London to frame the architecture for a new world economic order – this time with a new president in the White House in Washington.

World leaders will have set aside their political wrangling (this will include Russia) to address the bailout of global banks; the spiraling depreciation of US mortgage companies; the bloodletting of Wall Street institutions and other capital enterprises, but above all, the untested terrain of quantitative easing which will pump trillions of dollars into the world economy with no one knowing what the residual effects will be…

Most taxpayers are asking – what else is left for governments to control?

In some schools of thought, some are arguing that governments are fallaciously using the concept of taxpayer’s money as a means of power and control…

But is this the truth or is this a major Con in the making?

How do we as taxpayers benefit from government ownership of the major institutions and engines of socioeconomic growth, while using tax-payers dollars under a false pretext?

If our tax dollars is being used to bailout “Fat-Cats”, Hedge Fund imbeciles and greedy banking CEO’s, does it mean we now have controlling interests and a major “say-so” in how these institutions work and is our financial creditability adequately represented through a process of transparency and accountability?

When the dust settles and the smoke clears – will we be any better off?

Now back to the context of our discussion.

As we have witnessed the collapse of the major financial houses, i.e. Bear Stearns, Fannie/Freddy Mae/Mac, Lehman Brothers and we expect within the next few months that some other major players will be added to that growing list, the scope of optimism is gradual losing traction.

So far the US government’s TWO major bailout packages have been the Mother of all bailouts. The taxpayer cost for just the two major mortgage companies (Fannie & Freddie) — is roughly $200 billion, which is more than the total cost of bailing out thousands of S & L’s in the 1970s.

In short, the Federal government is buying a pig in a poke — a bottomless pit that will suck up many times more capital than they’re revealing right now – for some economists fear the price tag could be in the vicinity of 2 to 3 trillion dollars.

Let’s look at the numbers:

Mortgages owned or guaranteed by Fannie and Freddie: $5.3 Trillion.

Treasury Securities outstanding as of March 31, according to the Fed’s Flow of Funds (report page 87, pdf. page 95): Also $5.3 Trillion.

Here’s the dilemma:-

What if foreign investors and all those who hold government bonds and securities decide to dump them?

To add insult to injury according to Dr. Martin D. Weiss, it is actually worse than that, for if foreign investors, who are most likely to dump their holdings if they lose confidence in the United States, hold an estimated 20% of the Fannie and Freddie backed mortgages outstanding – but also these said foreign investors who own 52.7% of the Treasury Securities outstanding (excluding those held by the Fed) decide to make a clean break because of the bankrupt nature of these institutions – could you imagine the fallout?

So based on the above stats, Treasury Securities are actually more vulnerable to foreign selling than Fannie and Freddie bonds.

An ominous scenario for most American families – notwithstanding the global impact this would cause as a ripple effect.

The crisis could easily move from plague to pandemic according to Dr. Weiss. The safety of every stock, mutual fund and ETF you own now hangs in the balance … This great credit crisis is rapidly spreading beyond banks … beyond brokers … beyond the entire financial sector … to many of the most widely held non-financial stocks in America and internationally!!!

The U.S government saw this coming and did nothing to avert it. The question is – can we trust our government with our financial affairs or are we going to look back a decade from now to realize we didn’t learn anything from the S & L fiasco of the 70′s and we simply sat and watched the government and the captains of industry cock-up our investments and life savings in another Herculean “heist” of Titanic proportions?

So what’s next for the government?

Moves are afoot to control even our religion and our freedom to worship the “god” of our choosing.

This is what history has taught us:

In 16th century Britain, when the government started to use the church in order to advance their own agenda, King Henry VIII, was so revered, he had been given the title “Defender of the Faith” by Pope Leo X.

Then, in 1534, a Parliamentary Act made the melding of Church and State in England official, and gave Henry VIII legal sanction to assume clerical powers as the Head of the Church of England.

The State now had control over the Church.

Henry VIII, now being “the only Supreme Head in Earth of the Church of England” decided he didn’t want to be married to his wife Anne Boleyn anymore, so being the “Head” of his country’s religion, he decided to have Anne’s pretty little “head” on a platter, as a political act of madness.

After being granted power by Parliament over all churches in England, Henry promptly decided he wanted to confiscate all properties of Roman Catholic churches in England and use their wealth to pay off State debts.

The madness continued with King Henry VIII’s successor, Edward VI, who changed the Prayer Book that was to be used in churches throughout England, declaring it illegal to use the Old Prayer Book.

Many people rebelled and took to the streets to demand the withdrawal of the new English prayer books.

The king ordered that they be contained and an army of mercenaries was set upon the protesters. In total 4,000 people lost their lives in the rebellion.

Edward VI’s successor, Mary I (aptly nicknamed Bloody Mary – how appropriate), decided, she wanted to move the State Church of England away from Protestantism (which it had become under Henry VIII and Edward VI) and back to Roman Catholicism.

Many people however, didn’t want to change their faith at the State’s decree.

Mary said, “That just won’t do”.

The State controls the Church.

“You have to do what I say, or else.”

The question I pose is this:

Would we want the President of the United States to be, besides the leader of our government, also the leader who decides what is morally correct in the country in matters of faith and in liberty of conscience?

What if the President decided that it should be morally acceptable for men to falsely imprison and execute their wives?

Or, perhaps, decide that it should be morally acceptable for this country to engage in torture?

Would you want the United States government to be given ownership of all religious property in the country?

What if the United States Government decided it needed to take some of the church property in this country and sell it so that it could pay off debts owed to other countries like China?

Suppose a church that has defaulted on a loan is forced to move out of its building – if the government holds that mortgage then isn’t this a law that prohibits the free exercise of religion for that congregation?

Would you like the President of the United States to be able to dictate which religious books should be used in all churches throughout the country?

What if the Bible was banned?

Would you find it acceptable that you either change or be punished?

Would you want the President of the United States to dictate that only one religion should be practiced in the country?

What if a new President wanted to change which religion will be the official religion of the country making us all Roman Catholics?

Would you find it acceptable that you either change your religion at the order of the government or face punishment even in fear of death?

Haven’t certain religious and moral leaders in the country sided with Bush & Cheney in trying to excuse the use of torture by US interrogators in Guantanamo Bay, Iraq and other military domiciles around the world?

The First Amendment says in part – it states that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof …”

Ruth Moon in a poignant article in Christianity Today poses an interesting anomaly. She argues that:

“If any bailout legislation passes, the government will likely hold mortgages purchased from banks and attempt to sell them as soon as their value climbs high enough.

So what happens if the government buys out a bank on the verge of bankruptcy and obtains church mortgages?

Would the government directly or indirectly be entangled with religion?

Would such an arrangement amount to a violation of the First Amendment’s bar against establishing religion?”

The reason this poses challenges is for the same reason that the framers of the Constitution envisioned a time where there would be no clear dividing line or demarcation between Church and State.

Ruth Moon further argues that “the problem would be in the gap between when the government gets the mortgage and when it is sold. Having a government-owned church is probably in theory an Establishment Clause problem…

It gets a little more dicey if the Church defaulted on the mortgage while the government was holding it — do you give them special consideration?

If you don’t want to foreclose on them, do you foreclose on one Church or not foreclose on another?

The Secretary of the Treasury would likely make an effort not to foreclose on churches but if he did foreclose, they would sell the property to a private owner or evict the defaulting church.

There are few things as entangling as ownership of religious real estate.

When we talk about separation protecting churches, we are historically talking about the Monarchical practice in Europe of seizing church lands and assets when the treasury was strapped or when the Crowned Head converted.

If the U.S. government were to end up holding the actual mortgages on property, which is where we are headed, if all this over-leveraged real estate were to fall into HUD’s lap, then the U.S. government would face having to refurbish and sell off those properties directly, and if Church mortgages were covered in the nationalization plans, that would include the U.S. government owning and selling church lands.

It may sound callous and hard-hearted, particularly coming from a market driven ethos, but from a constitutional, legal, and ethical standpoint, it might be best to disqualify church mortgages from the buy ups and allow delinquent ones to fail.

When our economies (which is merely buying time) as I believe will slip into further meltdown as the subprime mortgage debacle completely unfolds and the toxic assets which has so far crippled the entire economy of Iceland resulting in Britain having to inject a further £200 billion in liquid taxpayers capitalization to keep the country’s banks from sinking into dark, cold, Arctic water of the North Atlantic – we will see another run on the global world economies by government leaders as they continue to throw money at an insatiable monster of bad, toxic debt which now totals somewhere in the region of $1400 Trillion.

Be under no illusion folks, even our religious freedoms will be constrained as governments move to have greater and greater control of our lives.

Is it any wonder that the Apostle John in the greatest book in the Bible – Revelation – states categorically that in the days just up ahead – “No one will be able to buy or sell unless they have the ‘Mark of the Beast’…”

Buying and selling is a market driven enterprise.

If governments tell who can and who can’t buy or sell unless certain criteria is met – then that control becomes evil autonomy and diabolically divisive.

The Founding Fathers (and the First Amendment of the Constitution) forbid religion at ALL in government, much less at the “center” of it.

Separation of Church and State is a political and legal doctrine that government and religious institutions are to be kept separate and independent from each other.

The term most often refers to the combination of two principles: secularity of government and freedom of religious exercise.

The phrase separation of Church and State is generally traced to a letter written by Thomas Jefferson in 1802 to the Danbury Baptists, in which he referred to the First Amendment to the United States Constitution as creating a “wall of separation” between Church and State.

State Favors Result in State Control of the Church.

The Spirit Of the Laws (1748), Montesquieu notes:

“Therefore, one does not succeed in detaching the soul from religion by filling it with this great object, by bringing it closer to the moment when it should find religion of greater importance.”

“A more certain way to attack religion is by favor, by the comforts of life, by the hope of wealth; not by what reminds one of it, but by what makes one forget it; not by what makes one indignant, but by what makes men lukewarm, when other passions act on our souls, and those which religion inspires are silent.”

“In the matter of changing religion, State favors are stronger than penalties.”

This is precisely the formula that has been followed by our own government, in recent years, as it grows ever more hostile toward Christian values.

Rather than attack Christianity through various “penalties”, the modern method is to render the Church “lukewarm” by doling out “State favors.”

The most prominent of “favors” today is the tax−exempt license.

But in reality, the granting of a tax exemption to the church is a monumental Con job. If the government has paid into you – then they have the legal right to censure you, tell you what is appropriate to teach and what is unacceptable.

Issues of growing moral and social concern will soon but disappear from our sermons and teachings as “hate & discrimination” laws are rigorously enforced upon our “Protestant Ethic” and we are forced to choose sides and take a stand.

I know this will be very difficult for many to swallow but in the end, the state will win with only a few dissenting voices on the margins who will risk all as in ages past for the right to follow the dictates of conscience and to serve and follow the God of the Bible.

I realize millions of people will have to make great sacrifices in the very near future while at this time we are being lulled in a false sense of security. They say the worst kind of moral and spiritual death is when you are asleep at the wheel and don’t know it.

The choice must become clear…

rs15659-2tAt 11 PM Eastern Standard Time in the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama was crowned the greatest inspirational political figure in history.

After almost two years of relentless campaigning, whistle-stop tours, public appearances, eclectic speeches and finally the blow out electoral mandate from what can only be described as the greatest historical political election machinery of all time, cemented Barack Obama as America’s first Black President of these ere United States.

The whole world sat in awe – spellbound by the charismatic atmosphere which enveloped the consciousness of men and women, kings and queens, presidents and pope, rich and poor, Black and White…

In my lifetime, the world has had in recent history, three dramatic paradigmatic shifts:- (1) the Berlin Wall came down in 1989 (2) the Twin Towers in NY fell in 2001 (3) A Black man suitably named OBAMA* became President of the United States of America in 2008 destroying an antiquated, decadent white colonalistically-dominated pyramid culture .

All that’s left to happen is for JESUS* to come again!!!

On the dawn of a new day.

With the making of history, what stood out more forceful than even the unanimous victory for Barack and the Democrats was the “IMAGE” of the transcendent, transformational, timeless portrait of the Black family in all its glory.

Never again, will the “image” of the Black family be held up to the historical smear job done to it by the forces of malignant evil which had perpetrated a lie for hundreds of years.

Never again should any Black man, Black Father, Black son or brother have an excuse to forfeit his responsibility to his wife or children or for the Black woman not to be the “Rock” within her family.

I believe the time has come and in the immortal words of President-Elect Obama – “Yes We Can”…

We are reminded in the Sacred Scriptures that the prophets longed to see these days that we have been blessed to live in.

Now is the time for shared HOPE*.

Now is the time for shared values.

Now is the time for Black folks to rise up and experience the God-given opportunities which we have been given and do all that we can by the grace of God we have been given to assume our rightful place in the world.

Like Simon of Cyrene, the Black man is still carrying the Cross of Christ to guarantee that righteousness be fulfilled.

The hope of planet earth lies within the bosom of the Black family.

No longer can they afford to be marginalized, disenfranchised and deprived of the right to forge the eternal bonds of unity, oneness and purpose as a people.

Blacks must work within their families to remove the generational curses of marital breakdown, single-parent homes, drug-dependent youths, welfare stranded individuals, uneducated relics of the past and the treacherous ghost of the legacy of human slavery imposed as a blot upon the soul of a people.

The Black family stands as the last great beacon of moral virtue and hope in a world tether-tottering on the precipice of extinction and annihilation.

The Black family must be re-educated about the RICH legacy of their history. Much of it shrouded in primordiality and the rest of it covered in cobweb and locked away in the libraries of antiquity.

Never must they ever again allow the “Light” on a hill to be extinguished by the forces of cynicism, doubt and fear.

Never again must they show the world that when God created man from the ground that He wanted to exemplify to the entire Universe the power of His Glory in the human family that – Black men, White men, Latino men, Asian men and every child of Adam’s race were all equal.

Today is indeed the dawn of a new day.

What will the excuses be now???

The Gospel ofMatthew 21:12-13 says that “Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, and said unto them, ‘It is written’, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.”

Strong words which still echo down through to our time.

2000 years later, the world is gripped in a financial mess. Most of it orchestrated by “dark forces” which are at work. These forces operate across borders. They have permeated religion, politics and the economic spheres. In each of these departments of life, there is clear intrigue, sophistry and deception which is dragging down the integrity and confidence of many sincere people.

Religion (Christianity) today is nothing more than a disguised form of legitimized capitalism with a license to rob and steal from gullible, unsuspecting and fragile-minded individuals.

Politics today is a “mish-mash” of clueless individuals whose only modus operandi is wielding power over its citizens through lies, spin, deception and subterfuge.

But what can be said about the economic realm?

Below is a compilation of powerful historical statements by men of renown who through the lens of clarity foresaw  a time that would be unlike any other time if we did not act to preserve all of our liberties through concerted action and knowledge-based awareness.

Here is a spot of social history:

First of all, let us look at Jewish history as a point of reference where there is a record of the common practice of setting up money changers in the temple area during the Jewish Passover.

The Talmud states the following:

“Beginning on the 1st of Adar (the month before Passover), a proclamation was made to the people that they should prepare the Shekalim . . .

On the 15th day of Adar, moneychangers were sent out to collect the Half-Shekel for its donation . . .

On the 25th day of Adar, moneychangers were installed in the Temple itself to help in the collecting the Half-Shekel donation” – (Megillah 29a-b)

Not only were the moneychangers robbing the people, but history records that excessive prices were being charged by those who were selling animals used in Temple sacrifice.

The Jewish Mishna states that because of greed, the market for birds rose so much that not even the poorer woman of the community could afford them.

Rabban Shimon ben Gamaliel the Elder, a leading rabbi of his time and a descendant of Gamaliel whom the Bible says trained the Apostle Paul as a Pharisee, before Paul had come to Christ, took immediate action to lower the market price.

Even many of the high priests during the first century seemed to have given up their love of God for the love of money.

Most notably the High priest whom Jesus was brought before, Annas, along with his five sons who succeeded him to that position.

The Temple sacrifice during their reigns can best be summed up by the words – “The Marketplace of the Family of Annas”.

The historian Josephus sheds some light on the actions of one member of this family, Annas the younger, the man who had James (the writer of the book of James in the Bible and the brother of Jesus) stoned to death.

Josephus states:

“The high priest, Ananus, (after he had been relieved from his office) to some degree, was respected and feared by the citizens, but in a bad way; for he loved to hoard money. He became good friends with Albinus, and of the newly installed high priest.

He did so by offering them bribes; he also had wicked servants, who associated with the most vilest sort of characters,  went to the thrashing-floors, and took the tithes that belonged to the priests by force, and beat anyone who would not give these tithes to them.

So the other high priests that followed him as well as his servants acted likewise, without anyone being able to stop them; so that some of the priests, those who were old and were being supported with those tithes, died for lack of food.”

As a matter of fact, Jewish history records that these high priests who walked the temple courts during the first century, were despised by the majority of the people for their brutality and hunger for money.

So much so that there is a strong condemnation of these men in the Talmud.

Tosefta, Menachoth 13.21 states in a Rabbinic Lament over the brutality of the Sadducees – Abba Saul ben Betnith and Abba Jose ben Johanan of Jerusalem says:

“Woe to the house of Boethus! Woe to me because of their rods!”

(Simon, son of Boethus, father in-law to Herod. He was a high priest during the reign of Herod the Great)!!!

In a Satanic twist of fate, the rod of Jesus used in AD 30 was now instrumental in whipping the poor, the dispossessed and the innocent into submission.

In contemporary postmodern 21st century society the whip being used by those in positions of authority and leadership is subterfuge, moral hazard & panic, threats of martial law,  salacious taxation and egregious laws which hang around the necks of the poor like an Albatross in The Rime of the Ancient Mariner.

History recounts how Sir Josiah Stamp, Director and President of the Bank of England during the 1920′s made these fascinating claims that:

“The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is perhaps the most astounding piece of sleight of hand that was ever invented. Banking was conceived in iniquity and born in sin.”

Sir Stamp added that:

“Bankers own the earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create money and control credit, and with the flick of a pen, they will create enough money to buy it back again. Take this great power away from the bankers and all the great fortunes like mine will disappear, and they ought to disappear, for this would be a better and happier world to live in. But if you want to continue the slaves of bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create money and to control credit.”

This from a money-changer who was the second richest man in Britain at the time of Great Depression One.

What is remarkable is the language he uses to describe what must surely be a demonically engineered institution that must be destroyed if mankind has any hope of true economic freedom.

Thankfully, the Scriptures has prophesied that God will bring complete ruin and destruction to such a diabolical system.

Cecil Rhodes argued that the secret banking cabal only directive is to see that:

“Our goal is gradually to absorb the wealth of the world”.

Philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860) said that “If you want to make someone angry tell him a lie; if you want to make him furious, tell him the truth.” Yet the Bible reminds us that men will believe a lie for the truth!!!

He suggest that:

“All truth passes through three stages.

First, it is ridiculed; second it is violently opposed; and third it is accepted as self-evident.”

Thomas Jefferson reminded us that, “If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their money, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them (around the banks), will deprive the people of their property, until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.”

Yet many remain apathetic as to the course our world is currently on, especially Americans who are seeing their wealth disappear, their jobs dissipate and their social structure inch toward Great Depression 2…

Colonel Edward Mandel House’s ominous warning is upon every American family. He warns them that:

“Very soon every American will be required to register their biological property in a national system designed to keep track of the people and that will operate under the ancient system of pledging.”

Is this reminiscent of policies afoot to database the whole of the American medical records system?

House suggest that:

“By such methodology, we can compel people to submit to our agenda, which will affect our security as a charge back for our fiat paper currency.”

“Every American will be forced to register or suffer being able to work and earn a living.”

“They will be our chattels (property) and we will hold the security interest over them forever, by operation of the law merchant under the scheme of secured transactions”.

“Americans, by unknowingly or unwittingly delivering the bills of lading (Birth Certificates) to us will be rendered bankrupt and insolvent, secured by their pledges”.

“They will be stripped of their rights and given a commercial value designed to make us a profit and they will be none the wiser, for not one man in a million could ever figure our plans and, if by accident one or two should figure it out, we have in our arsenal plausible deniability”.

“After all, this is the only logical way to fund government, by floating liens and debts to the registrants in the form of benefits and privileges”.

“This will inevitably reap us huge profit beyond our wildest expectations and leave every American a contributor to this fraud, which we will call ‘Social Insurance’.”

“Without realizing it, every American will unknowingly be our servants, however begrudgingly.”

“The people will become helpless and without any hope for their redemption and we will employ the high office (Presidency) of our dummy corporation (USA) to foment this plot against America.”

What an assertion!!! How do individuals handle those kinds of truths or are they seen as just speculative gobble-de-goo?

Here is a prime example of this is the market crash of 1929 and the resulting Great Depression.

Just prior to the market crash, the economy was thriving. However, the banks made drastic changes in their lending policies by refusing new loans to stabilize growing businesses.

At the same time they demanded payment on existing loans so that money was quickly taken out of circulation and was not replaced.

America was put in a “Depression” and in deep trouble. There were plenty of goods for sale, jobs to be done but very little money to be had.

Workers were laid off and the banks took possession of tens of thousands of homes, farms and businesses through foreclosure.

This “cycle” of “boom and bust” continues today through the same monetary manipulation by the private banking industry and the dark and sinister forces at work behind the scenes.

A close examination of the past [9] decades would show that through all the recessions, depressions, untold personal and corporate bankruptcies, wars and human suffering – only one industry has consistently shown growth, and phenomenal growth at that – and that is the banking industry.

Do a fact check and see how much the global banking industry has received in hand outs from taxpayers dollars!!!

If that is not wealth-transfer, then what is it?

If you own the golden goose that lays the golden eggs, you can’t help but accumulate enormous wealth.

Here is a direct quote from an edition of the American Bankers Association magazine in 1924 which clearly illustrates the true intent of these “dark forces” at work:

“Capital must be protected in every possible way. Debts must be collected, mortgages foreclosed as rapidly as possible. When through the process of law, the common people lose their homes; they will become more docile and more easily governed through the strong arm of Government applied by a central power of wealth under leading financiers. These truths are well known among our principal men who are now engaged in forming an imperialism to govern the world. By dividing the voter through the political party system, we can get them to expend their energies in fighting for questions of no importance. It is thus by discreet action we can secure for ourselves that which has been so well planned and so successfully accomplished.”

Larry Bates, former professor of economics, a banker for 11 years, a member of the Tennessee House of Representatives , Chair on the Committee on Banking and Commerce and author of the bestselling book The New Economic Disorder warns:

“I can tell you right now that there is going to be a crash of unprecedented proportions. A crash like we have never seen before in this country. The greatest shock of this decade is that more people are about to lose more money than at any time before in history, but the second greatest shock will be the incredible amount of money a relatively small group of people will make at the same time. You see, in periods of economic upheaval in periods of economic crisis, wealth is not destroyed, it is merely transferred.”

There you have it – clearly the more things seem to change – the more they stay the same.

The moneychangers have not changed their agenda in  over 2000 years.
They continue to fleece us on every level. Yet mankind seem impotent to do anything while a select group rob us blind of our statutory well-being and our right to exist as free, moral agents created in the image of a Sovereign God who does Not even violate our power to choose.
But the Apostle James’ warning to the rich oppressors is very stark and poignant:

“Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming upon you. Your wealth has rotted, and moths have eaten your clothes. Your gold and silver are corroded. Their corrosion will testify against you and eat your flesh like fire. You have hoarded wealth in the last days. Look! The wages you failed to pay the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord Almighty. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves in the day of slaughter.”

One final destructive act on the part of Christ will clear the threshing floor of the husks of hypocrisy, greed and  the evil gain by a system that has made commodity of poor, booty of the innocence and collateral of the disenfranchised.

The ultimate justice will be a world steeped in poverty for which riches and wealth will no longer have  precedence, rule or value  – where the last vestiges of a  6000 year Satanic rule will ultimately be bound up in a bottomless pit by an Angelic chain of circumstances for which they will be no reprieve.

A day not far distant and a day where many will mourn – yet a day where many will rejoice…

Some Rich Facts About Black Folks…

The word, “coffee,” comes from Caffa, Ethiopia, where it was first used and where it still grows wild.

George Washington sent a ‘Negro’ slave to Barbados to be exchanged for a hogshead of molasses, a cask of rum and ‘other good old spirits,’ in 1776.

Beethoven, the world’s ‘greatest’ musician, was without a doubt a dark ‘mulatto.’ He was called “The Black Spaniard.” His teacher, the immortal Joseph Haydn, who wrote the music for the former Austrian National Anthem, was ‘colored,’ too.

The Ganges, the sacred river of India, is named after an Ethiopian king of that name who conquers Asia as far as this river flows.

The use of the terms ‘Negro,’ Colored’ and ‘Mulatto’ were commonly used at the time of this work’s writing.

(As of 1930) the white population of New York (was) a third more illiterate than the ‘Negro’ one.

PROOF:

In New York there (were) 375,999 illiterates in a white population of 10,513,933 or 3.6%. ‘Negro’ illiterates (were) 8,604 in a population of 347,381 or 2.5 % (1930 Census, Vol. II, p. 1229).

COMMENT: I wonder what the stats look like today. (BLC)

In the United States Army Intelligence tests during World War I, the ‘Negroes’ of Pennsylvania, New York, Illinois and Ohio led the whites of Mississippi, Kentucky, Arkansas and Georgia by from one to seven percent.

PROOF:

See American Journal of Sociology, Vol. 33, p.256 (Sept.,1927).

Estevanico, a ‘Negro’ from Morocco, was one of a party of four to cross the North American continent in 1536 for the first time. The journey took nine years. In 1539 he headed an expedition that discovered Arizona and New Mexico. Estevanico’s travels served to open up the Southwest and the States west of Florida, as far as the Pacific.

PROOF:

J.K. Hosmer says of the first journey made across the American continent by civilized men, ” Of these, three were Spaniards, and the fourth, a person upon whom it is worth while to dwell for a moment. He was a Negro, the first of his race to reach the valley, contemporary with the earliest Europeans.” Of Estevanico’s expedition to Arizona and New Mexico, he says, “Fray Marcos sent the Negro forward as better fitted than anyone to prepare the way.” (A Short History of the Mississippi Valley, pp. 25-27, Boston, 1901.)

For the account of the actual journey, see: Narrative of Nunez Cabeca de Vaca, N.Y. 1922. Also, J.E. Bolton: Chronicles of America, Vol. 23.

Imhotep of Ancient Egypt, was the real Father of Medicine. He lived about 2300 b.c. Greece and Rome had their knowledge of medicine from him. In Rome he was worshiped as the prince of peace in the form of a Black man. His Ethiopian portraits show him a ‘Negro.’ Imhotep was also Prime Minister to King Zoser as well as the foremost architect of his time. The saying, “Eat, drink, and be merry for tomorrow we die,” has been traced to him. Hippocrates, the so-called “Father of Medicine,” lived 2,000 years after Imhotep.

PROOF:

Gerald Massey says of Imhotep, “The child-Christ remained a starrily bejeweled Blackamoor as the typical healer in Rome. Jesus the Divine Healer, does not retain the black complexion of Iu-em-hotep (Imhotep) in the canonical Gospels, but he does in the Church of Rome when represented as a little black bambino.” …(I cut a major portion out here for brevity.

“Surely the profoundest sigh of an ever-warring world went up to heaven in the cult of Iu-em-hotep (Imhotep) who was worshiped as the giver of rest, the Kamite prince of peace.” (Ancient Egypt: The Light of the World, Vol. II, p. 754, London, 1907.)

The statuettes of Imhotep in the Cairo Museum show his Negroid features. They are reproduced in G. Daressy’s, Catalogue General des Antiquities Egyptiennes du Musee du Caire, Plate IV, 38,045 to 38,050, and Plate V.

COMMENT: Speaking of Christ having been Black, it was surprising to me how many white Spaniards in the Barcelona area of Spain INSIST that Christ was black. During my visit there in 1982, I went to Montsarrat, a monastery just outside of Barcelona, where the Madonna and Christ child are depicted as ‘coal’ Black. (BLC).

White American slave-holders used to induce white women to marry ‘Negro’ slaves in order to hold the women slaves for life.

PROOF:

In Sept. 1664, Maryland passed a law that any white woman who married a ‘Negro’ should serve the master of such slave “for life.” Slave-holders took advantage of this law to induce the white women, some of whom were recent arrivals, to marry the “Negroes.” MacCormac says, “Instead of preventing such marriages this law enabled avaricious and unprincipled masters to convert many of their (white) servants into slaves.”

In 1681, the Legislature was forced to issue the following law: “Divers freeborn English or white women sometimes by the instigation, procurement, and connivance of their master…. and always to the satisfaction of their lascivious and lustful desires….do intermarry with ‘Negroes’ and other slaves, be it enacted that if any master….having any freeborn English or white woman servant in their possession or property, shall by any instigation, procurement, knowledge, permission or contrivance,” cause her to marry a slave she should be free at once and the master should pay a fine of “10,000 lbs. of tobacco.” (Archives of Maryland, Vol. I, pp. 433-34; and Vol. III, pp. 203-04, also Johns Hopkins University Studies in Hist. & Pol. Science, No. 3 & 4.)

What is true of Maryland was true of other states.

The following is further FACTS about Black folks, interesting and little-known facts about Blacks in the Diaspora. The facts and proofs are taken out of J.A. Roger’s work, 100 AMAZING FACTS ABOUT THE NEGRO, WITH COMPLETE PROOF, written in the 1940′s and published 1957.

Dr. Daniel Williams, Chicago surgeon who died in 1931, was the first to perform a successful operation on the human heart.

PROOF:

Medical Record, March 27, 1897. The patient was James Cornish. Dr. Williams lived in Chicago. I (J.A. Rogers) knew him personally for many years.

Eugene Chen, one of the most dynamic political figures of the present century, and Minister of Foreign Affairs for China in 1927, was born of Chinese-’Negro’ parentage in Trinidad, West Indies, in 1878. He was also secretary to Dr. Sun Yat Sen, first president of China.

PROOF:

Vincent Sheean says in part of Eugene Chen, “The Foreign Minister was a remarkable man…. Physically and in some ways of speech, Mr. Chen reminded me of the French politician, Malvy; his complacency was like that of Austen Chamberlain; his delight in his own language and the care that he took to see that it was written down in its baroque magnificence suggested Mussolini. He was theatrical as Briand without any of the old fox’s charm; he was (as) ingratiating as Streseman, as bitter as Poincare. In short Mr. Chen was a politician…. Mr. Chen had been born a British subject at Trinidad, West Indies. His name as a British subject was not Chen. He was of mixed race, part Chinese, part ‘Negro’…. He had chosen his wife from the ‘Negro’ race, and in his four charming children the Chinese strain seemed almost to have vanished.” Personal History, pp. 205-07, N. Y., 1935. John Gunther, “Inside Asia,” pp. 259-60, 264,269, New York, 1939. Chen’s real name was Akam.

General A. Dodds, a Senegalese, was France’s best known soldier, prior to the First World War. In 1901, as the senior general he commanded for a brief time the Allied Army – white Americans, Germans, British, French, and Japanese – against the Boxers in China. The Germans, unable to tolerate that, hurriedly sent out a field-marshal.

PROOF:

General A.A. Dodds, conqueror of Dahomey, and France’s greatest colonial soldier, was born in St. Louis, Senegal, West Africa, of ‘mulatto’ parentage on both sides of his family. In color he was very dark. The New York Tribune, April 17, 1910, said that he was so popular that he could easily have seized the power in France as “the entire nation irrespective of party or politics turned out to welcome him and to such an extent did he become an object of popular enthusiasm that there is no doubt that he might easily have established himself in the role of military dictator had it not been for his loyalty to the republic,” yet it adds, he “would not have been permitted to drink at the same bar with a white man (in America) and in many states of the Union would not be permitted to ride in the same street car.” Gen. Dodds was a Grand Officer of the Legion of Honor, the highest possible grade in that order. He died in 1922. See F. Desplantes: Le General Dodds; Larousse Mensuel, Oct. 1922; and the works on the conquest of Dahomey.

In 1787 while a party of 351 freed ‘Negroes’ was aboard ship at Portsmouth England, en route to Sierra Leone, West Africa, the authorities brought on board sixty-two white women, prostitutes and others, whom they wished to get rid of, and married them to as many men, and sent them off to be the future mothers of the colony.

PROOF:

Utting says: “They sailed in 1787 from Portsmouth with 60 white women whom the Government wished to exile; the latter were made drunk, carried on board, and married to the ‘Negroes’ without their consent being asked.” (F.A.J. Utting: Sierra Leone, p. 81, London, 1931).

Mrs. A. M. Falconbridge, who talked with these women in Sierra Leone says that they “were mostly of that description of persons who walk the streets of London and support themselves by the earning of prostitution; that men were employed to collect and conduct them to Wapping where they were intoxicated with liquor, then inveigled on board ship and married to Black men whom they had never seen before.” (Voyages to Sierra Leone in 1791-2-3, pp. 64-66).

Psalms that read like those of the Bible were written by a Pharaoh, Amenophis IV, better known as “Akhenaton, the Heretic King,” 1300 B.C.or more than 400 years before David was born. Akhenaton, who was the father of Tut-Ankh-Amen, was extremely ‘Negro’ in type. He is called “the most remarkable of the Pharaohs.”

PROOF:

For a comparison of one of the Psalms of Akhenaton with the 104th Psalm in the Bible see Arthur Wei gall: LIFE AND TIMES OF AKHENATON, pp. 134-136. New York, 1923. Also J.H. Breasted HISTORY OF EGYPT, p. 373. New York, 1926.

On November 15, 218 B.C., Hannibal, a full-blooded ‘Negro,’ marching through conquered territory in Spain and France, performed the astounding feat of crossing the Alps. With only 26,000 of his original force of 82,000 men remaining, he defeated Rome, the mightiest military power of that age, who had a million men, in every battle for the next fifteen years. Hannibal is the father of military strategy. His tactics are still taught in the leading military academies of the United States, England, France, Germany and other lands.

PROOF:

Hannibal is usually depicted as a white man, but his coins in the British Museum and the Museo Kercheriano, Rome, show him to have been an African of purest type with rings in his ears. Col. Hennebert, perhaps the leading authority on Hannibal, declares that none of the several differing portraits now exhibited as Hannibal is he, “We do not possess any authentic portrait of Hannibal,” he says. (Histoire d’Annibal, Vol. I, p. 495, Paris, 1870). These coins were struck by Hannibal while he was in Italy. In the absence of other information the most logical argument is that they bore his own effigy, the more so, as the several kinds of them bear the same likeness. Above all, let us remember that he was an African.

A Few Facts About Blacks In America…

1. The first Americans or Native Americans going back to 6,000 BC were black! Look up the Folsom people who lived in Arizona. Or cite Mormon history (though many of the Elders are in historical denial)…

2. Best reason to stop our use of the term African American and say Black. A white person who was born in Africa, who moves to America is an African American and qualifies for financial aid, etc., but will get the jobs/pay privileges afforded to whites.

3. Look up the Slavery Law of 1665 (which stayed in effect until 1968) and the Maryland Doctrine of Exclusion (1638): both laws state that Blacks must be excluded from the benefits afforded whites and that Blacks must remain Non-competitive with whites, except in sports and entertainment.

4. Two white men: Bill Gates and Larry Elision, combined have more wealth; than the combined wealth of all 40 million Blacks in America.

Civil Rights did not change the economic landscape or the balance of power in America. Are we hoping the 2008 election of Barack Obama would bring change – I doubt it will- but then a “promise is a comfort for a fool”…

5. Asians receives 80% of all government minority set aside contracts. Hello!!!

6. Blacks eat more fish than whites by a four to one margin. For every dollar whites spend on fish, Blacks spend nine dollars on fish. Fish sold wholesale for $1 will retail at $2.50-$3.00. Guess what business we should be in as Blacks? Not Bird’s Eye for sure!!!

7. There is no Black owned national cable or major network television stations. The Black lady who owns our only black owned radio stations, plans to sell to white owners after hearing the deal Bob Johnson received for selling BET. (Cathy Hughes is from OMAHA) Oprah owns Harpo Production (now OWN) but still depends on the major network and BET has been sold on to white interest.

8. There are no Black owned companies on the Wall Street Stock Exchange where Blacks own the majority or controlling interest of the stock.

9. 96% of all Black inmates are men. Suicides rates have also doubled from 5.6 in every 100,000 amongst Black males.

10. Over the next two years 440,000 black inmates will be released from prison. The State has no place to put them as they re-enter society. Halfway house businesses, you think? Or will they end up in a forced draft if the president has to fight a major war in the Middle East alongside Israel?

11. In 1860, 98% of all Blacks in America worked for white people. In 2010, 98% of all Blacks in America still work for white people. So much for entrepreneurship!!!

12. In 1860, Blacks in America had a combined net worth of half of one percentage point. Guess what, in 2010, after Civil Rights, Jesse Jackson, Oprah, Shaq, NAACP, and Urban League, Barack and others our combined net worth is STILL* half a percentage point.

13. For every dollar earned by a Jewish person, that dollar touches 12-18 Jewish hands before it leaves their community. For every dollar earned by a Black person it leaves the community soon as he or she earns it.

14. In Washington DC, Black teenagers were arrested and booked for eating McDonald’s on the metro subway. Cops cited the recent 5-4 court decision as the permission to arrest lawbreakers even for minor offenses.

15. 67% of all hate crimes in America are against Blacks. After we get through being pleased that we have carpets in our office, a secretary, our name on the door and make six figures, let’s face it – we do not own anything. What will happen if you miss six months of work without pay? Or 3 months mortgage arrears payments? All we have left for our children is spiraling debt – not an inheritance ( George Bush has seen to that!). You cannot pass welfare or food stamps onto our kids as a nest egg!

By the way, the word “Race” hit the English language in the 16th century when Europeans held a contest to see who will win the “race” to gather the most wealth through exploitation of Black folks. Sounded familiar in the last election year – ask MITT*?

Just some of challenges which face Blacks as a people which ought to be part of the issues in the last “presidential race”…

But we rather discuss folly!!!

Look beneath the surface

Look beneath the surface

In a 1993 book, “WHO WILL TELL THE PEOPLE” by William Greider, he talks about the collapse of the Savings & Loans in the 1980’s and how the banking industry, its regulators and how both political parties complicity agreed to let the financial CRISIS* fester until it reached (hundreds of billions of dollars), precisely so the banks wouldn’t have to pay it and the TAXPAYERS would HAVE TO BAIL OUT these beleaguered banking institutions and investment houses.

Greider cites Kenneth McLean, staff director of the Senate Banking Committee by saying:

“Let’s let the problem build up and dump it on the taxpayers.”

And Robert Dugger, lobbyist for the American Bankers Association:

“Everyone knew the game was: Democrats don’t bring this up. Republicans don’t bring this up.”

Again in 2008 (on the precipice of Administration change), America’s TAXPAYERS was once again gripped, saddled and slapped this time with a “ONE-TRILLION DOLLAR” debt bail out of the said banking and investments institutions that made billions of dollars in profits during the last 8 years of the Bush tenure (with CEO’s creaming as much $25 million in bonuses per year) while over the last 5 years they bet against mortgage market trends without fear of reprisal or censure from the political establishment or from regulators.

The end-result today is a global $400 Trillion Derivatives Debt Mess!!!

Let us look at the historical lesson of how we got here…

In the 1500’s, European Prince Machiavelli who is considered by many to be the founder of modern political science felt that political thought lies in his freeing political action from moral considerations.

Machiavelli insisted that morals have no place in politics…

Hence deregulation in TODAY’s market!!!

Machiavelli felt that people are fundamentally bad…

And the end justifies the means…

In other words, he “abolished the moral problem” confronting politics.

For example, consider Machiavelli’s practical advice on how to gain power:

“You must recognize that there are two ways of fighting: by means of law, and by means of force. The first belongs properly to man, the second to animals; but since the first is often insufficient, it is necessary to resort to the second… Nor did a prince ever lack legitimate reasons by which to color his bad faith.”

So the tyrannical nature of the Darwinist philosophy which espouses “survival of the fittest” and the “law of the jungle” crept into the ethos of modern day politics but with a more sinister twist.

For hundreds of years that tyranny was the source of many unnatural and brutish conflicts. Modern political discourse and narrative has been moving in the other direction where the blurring of the line between Machiavellian thought and postmodern expediency was virtually indistinguishable.

In the 1840′s, Alexis de Tocqueville, a French politician and writer, published his famous book, “DEMOCRACY IN AMERICA”, still considered by many to be the greatest interpretive work ever written on the United States.

De Tocqueville said that America’s greatness was due to her passion for righteousness. He said that:

“America is great because America is good. When America ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.”

Hence, the last 8 years of a Bush presidency!!!

De Tocqueville foresaw the dangerous trend of our present government, but was unable to name it. He said:

“I think, then, that the species of oppression by which democratic nations are menaced is unlike anything which ever before existed in the world; our contemporaries will find no prototype of it in their memories. I seek in vain for an expression which will accurately convey the whole of the idea I have formed of it; the old words ‘despotism’ and ‘tyranny’ are inappropriate. The thing itself is new, and, since I cannot name, I must attempt to define it.”

The words that de Tocqueville was looking for according to some commentators hadn’t yet been invented: “totalitarianism, fascism, nationalism while others would label it “ANTICHRIST”

For example, “totalitarianism” came into being when all the governing and managing powers of a society, both its political and its economic power, is concentrated in the centralized bureaucracy of the state.

This is the case when our government combines with the FINANCIAL POWER BROKERS – when both economic and political powers eat from the same plate and sleep in the same bed.

As we race towards the second decade of the 21st century, we find ourselves in the midst of rapid and profound change.

We see our workers’ paychecks able to buy fewer and fewer necessities each year. The spiraling cost of food. The disintegration of civil liberties. The systematic exploitation of the poor for the sake of wealth creation (just look at Dafur).

We see our financial institutions looted by professional crooks (called bankers, hedge funds managers and the Madoff’s of the world ), prison populations soaring, rampant drug  trafficking and use, youth gang violence exploding,  epidemic teenage pregnancies and our public schools rotting away.

Many of our once-beautiful islands of the sea like Puerto Rico and Hawaii are now landscaped over with concrete. the quaint beauty of paradise is fast becoming a metropolis. People are unhappy and stressed out everywhere!

What went wrong?

Instead of feeling richer and happier, we see that traditional economic development has actually made us poorer and less happier.

Indeed, contemporary modern history is showing us (quite poignantly) that the pursuit of traditional economic development is actually the pursuit of misery and abject failure.

So who (or what) actually benefits from the traditional economic development model?

Have we considered that widespread distrust might be due to faulty economic theory? So-called Keynesian theoretical economics.

Could the problem be that happiness is un-economical?

Or worse, is it possible that unhappiness is good for corporate profits?

Economist E.F. Schumacher argues that “practical men, who believe themselves to be quite exempt from any intellectual influences, are usually the slaves of some defunct economist… It is ideas, not vested interests, which are dangerous for good or evil.”

It is argued that:

“Economics plays a central but the crucial role in shaping the activities of the modern world, inasmuch as it supplies the criteria of what is ‘economic’ and what is ‘uneconomic,’ and there is no other set of criteria that exercises a greater influence over the actions of individuals and groups as well as over those of governments.”

Economist John Maynard Keynes asks “can capitalism survive? No. I do not think it can… There is inherent in the capitalist system a tendency toward self-destruction.” Words from the architect of our modern, corrupt economic system.

Economist Joseph Alois Schumpeter believes that “America is becoming a land of private greed and public squalor.”

Former Labor Secretary Robert B. Reich is adamant that “if the truth be known, we are on the verge of losing an entire generation of our young people, killing and dying in the streets of America.”

U.S. Representative Ron Dellums suggests that “form determines content. Corporations are machines.”

So what’s wrong with our governments?

If America is really the world foremost democracy, why can’t they solve their social and economic problems?

If America is not a democracy, what kind of government is it – and who (or what) is in control?

The answers revolve around three central ideas: human “needs” are different from human “wants,” “human needs” are different from “corporate needs,” and corporations are different entities from those humans who own or operate them.

Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Paine, James Madison and Abraham Lincoln all warned against the one-sided excessive accumulation of capital by individuals and corporations.

Franklin declared that “no man ought to own more property than was needed for his livelihood,” – while Madison decried “the unequal and various distribution of property as the major cause of social unrest.”

Lincoln said that too much money in too few hands would destroy America: “The money power preys upon the nation in times of peace and conspires against it in times of adversity. I see in the near future a crisis approaching that… causes me to tremble for the safety of my country”.

Words OBAMA would do well to heed!!!

“The money power of the country will endeavor to… work… upon the people, until the wealth is aggregated in a few hands, and the republic destroyed.”

More recently, the outcry against greed was taken up by Louis Brandeis, who, before he ascended to the U. S. Supreme Court, declared forcefully that:

“We can either have democracy in this country or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we can’t have both.”

Justice Brandeis – one of the most famous justices of all time – clearly foresaw that too many rich people would change America from a democracy (one-citizen-one-vote), into a plutocracy (one-dollar-one-vote).

Today, America’s “rich people problem” has reached epidemic proportions, and while the growing numbers of homeless citizens are painfully apparent, the growing number of rich people has been less visible.

Let’s take a vivid look at the rich in America!!!

In 1975, there were 4,585 millionaires in America; by 1986, the number had grown to 31,859. Today, we have 271 of the world’s 563 known billionaires; the number of millionaires in America reached record highs in 2004, hitting 7.5 million, according to a new survey.

Along with six thousand and eight hundred groups of a thousand millionaires per group! This doesn’t even include those who are merely worth a million, just those who are earning a million or more per year. Another 50,000 high earners flicker above/below million-dollar mark.

New York Times columnist Anthony Lewis has noted that “the gap between rich and poor in America is far and away the widest in the developed world.”

We see the homeless every day, but we seldom see the rich because they leave their dirty work to their surrogates: the big corporations!

Richard Grossman and Frank T. Adams, in the book “Taking Care of Business: Citizenship and the Charter of Incorporation”, describe how citizens controlled corporations before the Civil War of 1861.

“Up to that time, corporations were chartered for a specific limited purpose (for example, building a toll road or canal) and for a specific, limited period of time (usually 20 or 30 years). Each corporation was chartered to achieve a specific social goal that a legislature decided was in the public interest”.

Isn’t it funny how things change?

“On the brink of economic disaster, politicians and elitists keep the profits generated from their destructive money-making activities, while all of society is forced to pay the costs. It’s as though only the richest 1% of the people have credit cards but the bill must be divided and paid by the rest of us”.

Hence the massive payout for CEO’s who have destroyed and failed companies on taxpayer’s life-support handouts.

In Brown’s book In State of the World 1993, he points out that our economic way of thinking is killing us:

“Industrial firms are allowed to internalize profits while externalizing costs, passing on to society such expenses as those for health care associated with polluted air or those from global warming”.

“An expanding economy based on such an incomplete accounting system would be expected to slowly undermine itself, eventually collapsing as support systems are destroyed”.

And that is just what is happening right NOW!!!

The environmentally destructive activities of recent decades are now showing in reduced productivity of croplands, forests, grasslands, and fisheries; in the mounting cleanup costs of toxic waste sites; in rising health care costs for cancer, birth defects, allergies, emphysema, asthma, and other respiratory diseases; and the spread of hunger in Africa and other poorer countries.

“The bottom line is that the world is entering a new era, one in which future economic progress depends on reversing environmental degradation. This in turn is contingent on new economic and population policies.”

The final irony will be the imposition of government taxes on each of us levied for “GREEN” and “CARBON” emissions.

World Bank economist Herman Daly and theologian John Cobb warn us:

“We human beings are being led into a dead end – all too literally. We are living by an ideology of death and accordingly we are destroying our own humanity and killing the planet. Even the one great success of the program that has governed us, the attainment of material affluence, is now giving way to poverty”.

“The United States is just now gaining a foretaste of the suffering that global economic policies, so enthusiastically embraced, have inflicted on hundreds of millions of others”.

“If we continue on our present paths, future generations, if there are to be any, are condemned to misery”.

“Victor Furkiss, a prominent futurist and Professor of Government at Georgetown University, describes our appalling situation in this way:

“Present-day society is locked into four positive feedback loops which need to be broken: economic growth which feeds on itself, population growth which feeds on itself, technological change which feeds on itself, and a pattern of income inequality which seems to be self sustaining and which tends to spur growth in the other three areas. Ecological humanism must create an economy in which economic and population growth is halted, technology is controlled, and gross inequalities of income are done away with”.

Our colossal stupidity is in condemning our children to living a horrible ecological nightmare – one that they will not awaken from. The stuff of science fiction!!!

Sadly, our current lifestyle cannot be sustained. We can see that today’s big question is not whether children will achieve a higher standard of living than their parents (they won’t). PERIOD!!!

Today’s big question is whether or not they will live long enough to retire.

Isn’t it interesting that on the threshold of  supposed “change” in the American political and socioeconomic establishment that we are seeing almost momentous and historic scales of monetary turbulence and readjustments in a market that is moving towards greater stringency and centralization on the part of governments and those who control the wheels of financial power?

Alan Muhammad cites it this way:

As with today’s government, there is not a sane person alive that believes that what is articulated in public statements reflect its actual policy. It is understood that these statements are crafted in the most thoroughly righteous language in order to obscure their real (and usually economic) motivations. Were one to examine the underlying economic motives to any government action or policy, rather than simply accepting their public proclamations, it would represent the beginning of clarity and wisdom”.

John McCain while on his campaign wanted to blast Wall Street for its greed – but he couldn’t remember how many houses he has and both he and his wife sit on a fortune in excess of $100 million…

Please give me a break!!!

Barack Obama is teeter-tottering on the precipice of a conundrum between wanting to be the greatest President in American history and having taken on a job that few “angels would dare to trod”, if any at all.

In the Middle Ages, the naked pursuit of wealth was called “avarice” and considered a sin. But avarice was re-labeled self-interest and became a virtue when Adam Smith published The Wealth of Nations in 1776 – the same year that Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence.

Whereas Jefferson failed to mention selfishness as one of America’s founding ideas, Smith argued that selfishness was fundamental for prosperity and must not be constrained by explicit moral considerations (Smith had read his Machiavelli).

For Smith to be right, Jefferson must have completely forgotten a very important idea. But Jefferson didn’t omit selfishness from our founding ideas by accident; in fact, he was strongly opposed to selfishness:

“Self-love, therefore, is no part of morality. Indeed it is exactly its counterpart. It is the sole antagonist of virtue, leading us constantly by our propensities to self-gratification in violation of our moral duties to others. Accordingly, it is against this enemy that are erected the batteries of moralists and religionists, as the only obstacle to the practice of morality. Take from man his selfish propensities, and he can have nothing to seduce him from the practice of virtue.”

Unfortunately, Thomas Jefferson’s passionate appeal for moral restraint fell on selfish ears.

200 years later, we see the fruits of our so-called morality or lack thereof…

Wall Street has crushed Main Street due to those lack of restraints. The end result is social turbulence bordering on what will ultimately be chaos and possible anarchy. Reason being, if people continue to lose jobs, faith and trust in a system that is clearly coming apart at the seams, the obvious will be realized.

The question is:

WHO WILL TELL THE PEOPLE THE TRUTH?

The Coming Economic Earthquake: A 9.0 on the Richter Scale

HYPERINFLATION

HYPERINFLATION

America, America, God wanted to send His grace on thee!!!

But you would not let Him!!!

Did you not see this earthquake coming?

Were not the warning signs self-evident?

How could you have been so apathetic?

Scientists have always warned us that whenever seismology is evident that animals are usually warning detectors. Ants seem to sense the faint rumblings causing them to begin a process of migration. Birds fly South or North, East or West depending on the imminent crisis dawning.

The wise Israelite king Solomon urged us to “Go to the ant thou sluggard – consider your ways and be wise.”

The ant stores up for a rainy day. He is frugal. He is diligent in maximizing the advantages available to him.

Economic indicators are no different!

After the post-war period, right up to the end of the 20th century, some argue that the fluctuations in American Tax laws but equally the fact that US currency has been changed at least three time in the last hundred years coupled with rampant, stampeding market forces has been adding a lethal cocktail of ingredients to our current crisis.

These factors converging together have represented early warning signals in what could very well be an earthquake of a magnitude of 9.0 on the Richter scale in the very near future.

The general seismic analysis for predicting any possible earthquake is based on the logic that if the animals has moved out and the ants have bolted, that should be enough to get anyone’s attention.

Sadly, Wall Street was engorged in a pandemonium of greed and financial gluttony like ravenous wolves while the custodians and sentinels who ought to have been monitoring the tell-tale signs were equally drunk with power, debauchery and the elixir of affluence.

With the economy in meltdown, those responsible for sounding the alarm rolled over and went back to sleep even though those noisy varmints were all moving out or had all gone off in other fiscal directions.

As with any major cataclysmic event, as in this case – an earthquake of possible unprecedented [proportions], the first instinct is to run for cover or if your cover is unstable then run for open air.

Once the economy had begun to crumble the only thing that could be done is to try and save our assets, i.e. house, car and other liquid assets). At the same time, hope and pray our 401K’s and other pensionable investments were safe.

It had been trumpeted all along that a few savvy economic pundits were predicting a shattering depression within the US economy that would have a ripple effect around the world.

They argued that governments and CENTRAL BANKS will attempt to throw massive amounts of cash at the problems (which will inflate currencies) and in turn will create – HYPERINFLATION!!!

For an idea of HYPERINFLATION – check out the latest cost of a loaf of bread in ZIMBABWE!!!

The economic depression of the 1930’s had left many good hard-working folks frustrated and disillusioned but in today’s world a financial earthquake will meltdown vast swathes of modern US, European, Asian and other developing cities around the world – leaving them gripped in the quagmire of closed businesses, astronomically rocketing food and energy prices, long lines for basic amenities coupled with rising anarchy, lawlessness and crime but compounded to add insult to injury would be the heavy-handed nature of a “police-state” where an absolute “ZERO”-Tolerance policy would be enacted by the civil authorities to stem the landslide into total social miasma.

Our governments are still clueless!

But then, there are only mortal men who “re-act” based on the climatic storms which are blowing at the time.

They are NOT “Clark Kent” and they certainly are not blessed to have the benefits of “True Prophets” around them who can see the future, assuage anxiety, escalating angst and be able to avoid feeble, incompetent decisions.

Today we are still seeing some of the major seismic cracks in the economic landscape of Wall Street, Main Street and every other financial market around the world in spite of what the trends are saying.

We are still at crisis proportions!

If you doubt my words today – watch this last quarter of the financial year 2008. (8 don’t seem so lucky after all, does it?)

2009 will also test the metal of those who claim to have answers including our most prominent political leaders who make promises which they know they cannot keep.

“A promise is still a comfort for a fool.”

Former Chairman of the FED said recently on Capitol Hill, “This is the worst I have seen in 100 years…”

I didn’t know Greenspan was that old (emphasis mine).

Stearns, Lehman, Merrill, AIG, Fannie/Freddie, WaMu, Wachovia and others I won’t mention at this time are all guilty of imprudence, GREED and faulty debt-to-asset ratios which were frankly unsustainable.

In any other age, this financial “nuke” would have had Biblical repercussions. The fall-out would have meant that the architects of this “mushroom cloud” of monetary meltdown and loss would have had to fall on their swords or face the “axeman”.

But sadly, that is the nature of global capitalism gone MAD!

Central banks around the world have also been in panic mode to print fresh currency to flood the crater left by this unprecedented seismology.

Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac had to be rescued by the US government to prop up the 70% of US mortgages but that will do precious little to stem the tide of the existing seismology undercurrent in the plate tectonics of the global economic system which has been amalgamating and congealing since the 1970’s creating what we are now experiencing today.

The full gambit of the debt crisis is still not yet fully known.

I AM ABOUT TO MAKE A BOLD PROPHECY (ok, let’s call it a prediction), the US government will have no choice but to allow major transnational corporations to buy up failing financial institutions because they have the liquidity on hand while banks will continue to suffer the effects of monetary rigor-mortis due to increasing losses and contraction.

For example, do NOT be surprise to see companies like WALMART* buying into and capitalizing on this trend. Watch for international corporations coming in and buying vast US financial portfolios.

The issue is about liquidity!

Cash is king!

Ask the Rothschilds and the Rockefeller’s.

In the end with the US fighting 2 wars, natural disasters every which way on all fronts and America’s continued ideological obligations around the world – the US government may have to put in an extra TRILLION dollars in increase subsidies into an extremely fractured, volatile and fragmented market.

Whether OBABA* or McCain – we should not even them!!!

Politicians can ill-afford to bury their heads in the sand and remain in denial as to what is happening in the US and in world markets.

Neither can over-zealous law-makers and bureaucrats think that this is the time to come down hard on American entrepreneurs who see a down-turned (or in this case, over-turned) market, as a means of gleaning large profits from the woes that exist as a means of “slapping” businesses with further taxation and additional red tape.

The horse has already bolted. The ant colony has migrated.

The end result will be outsourcing and relocation for existing American businesses that will move to sunnier climes, leaving jobless American haemorrhaging with further tales of woe in what will be deep recession and some arguing a possible “depression” if the economic indicators goes South or another war is started out the clear blue.

For every cause, there is an effect!

America’s material wealth and prowess in the world has come due to following proscribed Biblical principles – as well as disobedience has brought about what we are currently seeing.

If the US has been blessed, isn’t it because Deuteronomy 28:12-13 states:

“The Lord will open for you His good storehouse, the heavens, to give rain to your land in its season and to bless all the work of your hands; and you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow. And the Lord shall make you the head and not the tail, and you only shall be above, and you shall not be underneath, (IF) you will listen to the commandments of the Lord your God, which I charge you today, to observe them carefully.”

If the curse is upon the land, it may be because of the ominous promise of Deuteronomy 28:43-45:

“The alien who is among you shall rise above you higher and higher, but you shall go down lower and lower. He shall lend to you, but you shall not lend to him; he shall be the head, and you shall be the tail. So all these curses shall come on you and pursue and overtake you until you are destroyed, because you would not obey the Lord your God by keeping His commandments and His statutes which He commanded you.”

If these passages describe where America is or where she has been then it is incumbent on us individually as well as collectively and corporately to do all in our power to get back to our allegiance – “one nation under God”.

We can ill-afford to spare another moment!!!

Monopoly Money

Monopoly Money

The world is facing unprecedented economic times. There has never been so much loss of wealth in all of earth’s history. This colossal loss of wealth is underscored by an equally  precarious explosion of DEBT caused by unregulated greed, excess and gambling with hedge funds and other derivatives within the world’s stock markets. Current global DEBT stands  at $1400 Trillion. Current  global assets (GNP) stand at $53 Trillion. This DEBT Bubble is set to sink the world economy into an abyss from which they will be no return.

Politicians, economists and pundits refuse to face the obvious truths. NO amount of monopoly money printed by Central Banks will avert the impending disaster just up ahead. We may allay the inevitable for awhile but eventually the dominoes will fall.

Many of us do not remember the words of Henry Ford: “It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.”

What an ominous statement by the late Mr. Ford!!!

Have you noticed recently that your money is not going as far as it used to especially in the supermarket?

Have you noticed the incremental increases in the prices of basic living commodities?

Most families on fixed incomes have decided for the sake of expediency to rein in their spending on luxury items, vacation travel, eating out while concentrating on just the necessities, with others having to make decisions as to what to do with the investments they have, especially in the area of 401K’s.

The era of mindless partying, free spending and excess has suddenly hit a giant brick wall.

Political and economic pundits are using apocalyptic language like “Biblical proportions”; “falling off a cliff”; “the worst climate since the Great Depression”, just to describe the anomalies which are facing the world’s economic markets as we perch precariously on the precipice of a “Deep Depression.”

Paul Collier argues that Alan Greenspan and Gordon Brown have been the architects of our present financial condition. Yet Brown stood in the halls of Congress refusing to apologize for the mess he help create but tried to sound a clarion call for unity amongst the US and the UK vis-a-vie Europe.  Collier is vehement in his scathing attack on these two so-called financial wizards – Greenspan & Brown who have brought the world to its knees. He argues that because of:

“Gordon Brown’s emasculation of financial regulation in the UK and Alan Greenspan’s era of neglect in the US. This mantra radically exaggerates the upside potential of finance. At best, the contribution of the financial sector to the growth of an economy is second order: it facilitates the creativity of other sectors. Only at its worst is finance first order: as we are now seeing, it can be catastrophic.”

Others like Larry Edelson believes that: “if you think the biggest cost of the $700-billion bailout package is going to be higher taxes down the road, you’re wrong. The biggest cost is going to be the sheer destruction of the purchasing power of your money, an outright devaluation of the dollar that’s going to occur, no matter what.

You see, the ultimate source of all money in the U.S. is either DEBT, or “monopoly money” created by the Federal Reserve. Or some combination of the two. Either way, it’s not real money. It’s fictitious money. It’s nothing but a bunch of IOUs and electronic credits and debits. It’s nothing more than a promise to pay you something of value – if you wait around long enough to get paid.

Craig M. Boise in a thought-provoking article entitled “ Playing with ‘Monopoly Money’: Phony Profits, Fraud Penalties and Equity” Case Western Reserve University – School of Law (Minnesota Law Review, Vol. 90, p. 144, 2005 Case Legal Studies Research Paper No. 05-9 ) argues that:

“Although most U.S. corporations don’t pay Federal income taxes, over the last several years some corporations have been willing to report, and shell out to the Treasury, hundreds of millions of dollars in taxes that they didn’t owe. They did so to conceal the fact that they were playing with Monopoly Money – fabricating profits as phony as the pastel-colored money used in the classic Parker Brothers board game. Of course, once the game was up, these corporations wanted to raid the Community Chest to get their tax money back. But is it appropriate to refund taxes in such circumstances? This Article traces the history of tax refund suits and concludes that such suits are in essence claims in equity. This means that claimants are subject to well-established equitable defenses like the doctrine of unclean hands and equitable estoppel. This Article argues that given the potentially corrosive effects of tax fraud on the U.S. tax system, the assertion by the Internal Revenue Service of equitable defenses to earnings inflation-related refund claims would provide a more effective penalty regime than the current statutory system. In making this argument, this Article necessarily traverses several areas of law, including corporate fraud, the history and development of equity, the rules versus standards debate, law and economics, risk management, optimal penalty theory and even a bit of tax policy.”

So in essence the first U.S. 700 billion dollar TAXPAYER bailout was HUSH-MONEY to the “FAT-CATS” who are really George Bush and Hank Paulsen’s friends and cronies on Wall Street and in the financial markets of Central London and around Europe.

In Alexander James’ book “The Hidden History of Money & New World Order Usury Secrets, he describes that the:

“History of how the current enslaving monetary system, in which Bank-Lords get a credit monopoly (which gives them the power to create unlimited money from nothing at no liability to themselves because it is redeemable for goods or services produced by anyone forced to accept the private Federal Reserve dollar currency notes and cheques) and use our Tax System to collect the fraudulent interest was brought about by the forces of banking family dynasties working to establish a tyrannical New World Order through a series of wars, depressions, deficits, propaganda and crimes in which good politicians are murdered or removed by the New World Order (NWO) mafias (CIA, Mossad, MI5/6, Vatican, Jesuits, CFR, Bilderbergers, Trilateral Commission, Knights Templar aka ‘Freemasons’, etc). How ancient pagan cults are elitist-made inventions designed to allow their priesthood (Pharisees) to con value out of the public and how they are leading everyone back towards feudal fascist enslavement.”

The despicable irony is that we who claim to be intellectually enlightened are complicit in this fiasco as we compromise to protect our own piece of turf from the ravages of this menacing dragon. Many of us would rather be in denial or simply relegate this kind of discourse to mere speculative theory or the butt of some joke about “conspiracy theory”…

From the government’s point of view, government is always a success until it self-destructs from its own internal rot and corruption. When the stuff hits the fan, there is still no apology, accountability or acceptance of responsibility.

“All organizations are organized for the benefit of the organizers.” This can be said of the “bank-lords” and their exercise of free-will and the insidious creation of a pseudo-economy of hedge funds and derivatives which have helped create a counterfeit economy that many experts have said  lead to what could very well be a full-blown economic depression.

In an era of hyperreality, Overstock.com CEO and hedge fund activist Patrick Byrne contend that “there are a lot of us who think we are living on the edge of 1929.”

“When you consider what’s happened with mortgage-backed securities, you get the feeling these might be the first rumblings. There may be more IOUs in the system than there is liquidity, in which case the entire thing is going to vapor lock as soon as it is exposed.”

If this is the case, as is predicted, not only will the financial markets continue to freeze up but the printing of more money and throwing money at the problems in the form of so-called “stimulus packages” will only create hyperinflation and exacerbate a deeper depression on the world market but will eventually lead to global social instability, unrest, anarchy and war.

America and other “first-world” countries will be hit hardest by civil unrest, moral hazards and social instability unheard of in their history as a nation if the looming crisis is not averted.

President Obama has an uphill struggle to restore economic competence, assurance and confidence in the market that this phase will pass.

Many are not very optimistic…

As the world teeter-totters, let us be reminded of the words of Scripture:

” Seek the Lord while He may be found”…

Judgment is upon the world. Righteousness exalts a nation but sin is a reproach to any people. We are living in the times foretold by the prophets in Scripture. Anything that can be shaken will be shaken so that what remains will be worthwhile.

Let the nations examine themselves. Let our leaders cast of their dark and malevolent deeds and seek God with repentance so that the impending doom which lurks on the horizon can be averted and wholesale slaughter be quelled.

Sadly, I won’t bet on it…

Be inspired!!!
