Tragedy of the Commons

By Garrett Hardin

The concept of the Tragedy of the Commons is extremely important for understanding the degradation of our environment. The concept was clearly expressed for the first time by Garrett Hardin in his now famous article in Science in 1968, which is “widely accepted as a fundamental contribution to ecology, population theory, economics and political science.” Hardin: University of California Santa Barbara. The Basic Idea If a resource is held in common for use by all, then ultimately that resource will be destroyed. “Freedom in a common brings ruin to all.” To avoid the ultimate destruction, we must change our human values and ideas of morality.

  1. “Held in common” means the resource is owned by no one, or owned by a group, all of whom have access to the resource.
  2. “Ultimately” means after many years, maybe centuries. The time interval is closely tied to population increase of those who have access to the resource. The greater the number of people using a resource, the faster it is destroyed. Thus the Tragedy of the Commons is directly tied to over population.
  3. The resource must be available for use. Iron in earth’s core is held in common, but it is inaccessible, and it will not be destroyed.
  4. Resources held by individuals, even if the individual destroys the resource, is not an example of the Tragedy of the Commons.
  5. Hardin used the word “tragedy” as the philosopher Whitehead used it:”The essence of dramatic tragedy is not unhappiness. It resides in the solemnity of the remorseless working of things.” He [Whitehead] then goes on to say, “This inevitableness of destiny can only be illustrated in terms of human life by incidents which in fact involve unhappiness. For it is only by them that the futility of escape can be made evident in the drama.” Hardin (1968) Once the stage is set in a dramatic tragedy, there is no escape from the unhappy ending.
  6. Note that the tragedy does not need to follow from greed. In the example below, we all breath the air. This degrades the common resource: air. But we breath not because we are greedy, but because we want to live. Any sustained increase of population in a finite biosystem ends in tragedy.In brief, tragedy is logically dependent only on the assumption that there is steady growth in the use of land or resources within any finite ecosystem; it is not logically dependent on the conventions of any specific political and economic system. From A General Statement of Hardin’s Tragedy of the Commons by Herschel Elliott.
  7. We can avoid tragedy only by altering our values, by changing the way we live. There is no technical solution.The general statement of the tragedy of the commons demonstrates that an a priori ethics constructed on human-centered, moral principles and a definition of equal justice cannot prevent and indeed always supports growth in population and consumption. Such growth, though not inevitable, is a constant threat. If continual growth should ever occur, it eventually causes the breakdown of the ecosystems which support civilization. … Specifically, Hardin’s thought experiment with an imaginary commons demonstrates the futility — the absurdity — of much traditional ethical thinking. From A General Statement of Hardin’s Tragedy of the Commons by Herschel Elliott. We will not delve further into the ethical implications. They are profound and far reaching.

Garrett rephrased his idea in 1985:

As a result of discussions carried out during the past decade I now suggest a better wording of the central idea: Under conditions of overpopulation, freedom in an unmanaged commons brings ruin to all. From Hardin (1985) An Ecolate View of the Human Predicament.

Examples of Common Resources

  1. Air. No one owns the air, it is available for all to use, and its unlimited use leads to air pollution.
  2. Water. Water in the seas, estuaries, and the ocean is a common resource. But, water in lakes and rivers is often owned by cities, farmers, or others, especially in the western US.
  3. Fish of the sea. Hardin writes that In 1625, the Dutch scholar Hugo Grotius said, “The extent of the ocean is in fact so great that it suffices for any possible use on the part of all peoples for drawing water, for fishing, for sailing.” Now the once unlimited resources of marine fishes have become scarce and nations are coming to limit the freedom of their fishers in the commons. From here onward, complete freedom leads to tragedy.

Some History The concept that air, water, and fish are held in common for use by all was first codified into law by the Romans. In 535 AD, under the direction of Tribonian, the Corpus Iurus Civilis [Body of Civil Law] was issued in three parts, in Latin, at the order of the Emperor Justinian: the Codex Justinianus, the Digest, or Pandects, and the Institutes. The Codex Justinianus (issued in 529 AD) compiled all of the extant (in Justinian’s time) imperial constitutions from the time of Hadrian. It used both the Codex Theodosianus and private collections such as the Codex Gregorianus and Codex Hermogenianus. From: The “Codex Justinianus” Medieval Sourcebook: The Institutes, 535 CE. Here is the pertinent text:

Codex Justinianus (529) (Justinian Code), Book II, Part III. The Division of Things: 1. By the law of nature these things are common to mankind—the air, running water, the sea, and consequently the shores of the sea. No one, therefore, is forbidden to approach the seashore, provided that he respects habitationes, monuments, and buildings which are not, like the sea, subject only to the law of nations. 2. All rivers and ports are public; hence the right of fishing in a port, or in rivers, is common to all men. 3. The seashore extends as far as the greatest winter flood runs up. … 5. The public use of the seashore, too, is part of the law of nations, as is that of the sea itself; and, therefore, any person is at liberty to place on it a cottage, to which he may retreat, or to dry his nets there, and haul them from the sea; for the shores may be said to be the property of no man, but are subject to the same law as the sea itself, and the sand or ground beneath it. … 12. Wild beasts, birds, fish and all animals, which live either in the sea, the air, or the earth, so soon as they are taken by anyone, immediately become by the law of nations the property of the captor; for natural reason gives to the first occupant that which had no previous owner. And it is immaterial whether a man takes wild beasts or birds upon his own ground, or on that of another. Of course any one who enters the ground of another for the sake of hunting or fowling, may be prohibited by the proprietor, if he perceives his intention of entering. From: The “Codex Justinianus” Medieval Sourcebook: The Institutes, 535 CE.

A General Statement of the Tragedy of the Commons The philosopher Herschel Elliott states that there are four general premises that entail the tragedy of the commons:

  1. The Earth is finite: it has a limited stock of renewable fuels, minerals, and biological resources, a limited throughput of energy from the sun, and a finite sink for processing wastes.
  2. Although human activity very often does occur on privately owned lands which are not a commons, that and all other human activities take place in some larger natural commons. And that larger commons is a limited biosystem which is in a dynamic, competitive, and constantly evolving equilibrium. The equilibrium of an ecosystem can usually accommodate any activity on the part of its members as long as that activity is limited in amount and/or is practiced only by a small population. But continuous growth in the numbers of any organism or in its exploitation of land and resources will eventually exceed the capacity of the ecosystem to sustain that organism.
  3. Now for the first time on global scale human beings are exceeding the land and resource use which the Earth’s biosystem can sustain.
  4. Certainly it is true, as Hardin noted, that individuals who seek to maximize their material consumption contribute to the ever increasing exploitation of the world’s commons. But it is also true that all who follow the rarely questioned principles of humanitarian ethics — to save all human lives, to relieve all human misery, to prevent and cure disease, to foster universal human rights, and to assure equal justice and equal opportunity for everyone — do so also.

From A General Statement of Hardin’s Tragedy of the Commons by Herschel Elliott. Some Consequences The large and rapid increase in population since the beginning of the anthropocene has altered the global commons. Will our atmosphere, rivers, lands, and ocean ultimately be destroyed because they are held in common for use by all? Will we place ever stronger restrictions on their use? Or will we limit the population of the world?

Its message is, I think, still true today. Individualism is cherished because it produces freedom, but the gift is conditional: The more the population exceeds the carrying capacity of the environment, the more freedoms must be given up. As cities grow, the freedom to park is restricted by the number of parking meters or fee-charging garages. Traffic is rigidly controlled. On the global scale, nations are abandoning not only the freedom of the seas, but the freedom of the atmosphere, which acts as a common sink for aerial garbage. Yet to come are many other restrictions as the world’s population continues to grow. – Hardin (1998): Extensions of “The Tragedy of the Commons.”

Jared Diamond in his book Collapse describes in detail the collapse of civilizations that failed to solve the problem of the Tragedy of the Commons. He writes of Pitcairn and Henderson Islands in the Pacific (page 120):

Many centuries ago, immigrants came to a fertile land blessed with apparently inexhaustible resources. While the land lacked a few raw materials useful for industry, those materials were readily obtained by overseas trade with poorer lands that happened to have deposits of them. For a time, all the lands prospered, and their populations multiplied. But the population of that rich land eventually multiplied beyond the numbers that even its abundant resources could support. As its forests were felled and its soils eroded, its agricultural productivity was no longer sufficient to generate export surpluses, build ships, or even to nourish its own population. With that decline of trade, shortages of the imported raw materials developed. Civil war spread, as established political institutions were overthrown by a kaleidoscopically changing succession of local military leaders. The starving populace of the rich land survived by turning to cannibalism. Their former overseas trade partners met an even worse fate: deprived of the imports on which they had depended, they in turn ravaged their own environment until no one was left alive.

Solutions Tragedy is not inevitable. Jared Diamond described how some societies avoided tragedy, at least locally. The people of Tikopia, Japan, and the New Guinea highlands saved their forests and the agrarian economy which depended on forests. All limited their population to what could be sustained by their economy. There Is No Technical Solution Hardin points out that the Tragedy of the Commons is an example of the class of problems with no technical solution, where:

A technical solution may be defined as one that requires a change only in the techniques of the natural sciences, demanding little or nothing in the way of change in human values or ideas of morality. Hardin (1968).

We Must Change Our Values: Mutual Coercion Therefore, any solution requires that we, as a society, change our values of morality. For example, we may decide that unlimited use of air is no longer morally acceptable. Hardin states one solution is “Mutual Coercion Mutually Agreed Upon.” We, as a society, agree that some actions are not allowed (the mutual agreement), and that violations of the agreement leads to fines or prison terms (the Coercion). Thus, we have some restrictions on what can be put into the air. The US Environmental Protection Agency regulates the amount of pollutants that can be released into the air. Failure to comply with the regulations leads to fines or prison sentences. Hawaiian Islanders protected their environment and fisheries for a thousand years by a unique system of local ownership extending from the sea to the headwaters of streams feeding into the sea. Violations of the rules (taboos) could lead to the death penalty. This was “mutual coercion mutually agreed upon” in the extreme.

More General Solutions

In addition, morals or ethics can lead to changes in use of the resource. How can this be done? Ostrom et al (1999) provide a possible answer.

“Solving [commons] problems involves two distinct elements:

  1. Restricting access, and
  2. Creating incentives (usually by assigning individual rights to, or shares of, the resource) for users to invest in the resource instead of overexploiting it.

Both changes are needed. For example, access to the north Pacific halibut fishery was not restricted before the recent introduction of individual transferable quotas and catch limits protected the resource for decades. But the enormous competition to catch a large share of the resource before others did resulted in economic waste, danger to the fishers, and reduced quality of fish to consumers. Limiting access alone can fail if the resource users compete for shares, and the resource can become depleted unless incentives or regulations prevent overexploitation.” From Ostrom et al (1999), “Revisiting the Commons: Local Lessons, Global Challenges.”

Restricting access ultimately involves limiting population, especially when the common being accesses is a global system.

Were Opium Heads Responsible for the Downfall of China?

By Elizabeth Young

In the early 19th century, traders from Britain and America bought porcelain, silk and tea from China.  Allegedly, the problem was the “traitors” could find nothing to sell in exchange and the trade balance went negative. China then built up substantial monetary reserves in silver.

In 1830, according to our “accurate” history books, the British finally found something the Chinese would buy:  Opium.

“The fruit of the poppy was popular in many countries but, as usual, the Chinese over-did it. First, it was a favorite of the leisure classes, then, it trickled down to ordinary workmen.”

Soon, the “coolies” were neglecting their labors and China was in crisis.

When the authorities tried to stop the drug trade, the British opened fire, humiliating the government and almost bankrupting it. People lost confidence in Manchu rule.”

By the mid-19th Century, nearly half the country was in open revolt and saw the end of the oldest civilization in written history and a culture that may have influenced the Sumerians, Babylonians and the Persians. The Chinese are responsible for the four inventions that make life as we know it possible: Printing, papermaking (toilet paper?), gunpowder and the compass.

Is that Story Possible?

Are we to believe that all of a sudden “Hop Sing” is addicted to a psychotropic drug (more likely to get you constipated than high), moves to America and becomes a stereotypical Chinese house servant for Ben Cartwright at the Ponderosa?

Mike Jay in Emperors Of Dreams, realizes the Opium story is false information, which is deliberately intended to change the “dispositions and beliefs” of a population:

“The image at the core of this Opium belief has rarely been examined, either at the time by contemporaries or more recently by historians because a variety of interests intersect to replicate it in different contexts.”

In 1839, in spite of the so-called uncontrolled demand for opiates, rather than coffee or cannabis, the British traders found themselves with 20,000 chests of unsold opium on their store-ships, just below Canton. Then in one of those chance occurrences that don’t happen very often, like the same person winning the lottery three weeks in a row, the Chinese had a “tea party.”

The British now had an excuse and the historians an explanation, for the start of the first Opium War.

The Plight of the Chinese People

Lin Zixu, commissioner to the Emperor of China, allegedly sent a letter to Queen Victoria appealing to the British sense of justice for the plight of the Chinese people:

“We have heard that in your own country opium is prohibited with the utmost strictness and severity:—this is a strong proof that you know full well how hurtful it is to mankind.” [1]

The letter, which cannot be authenticated, was allegedly written to invoke sympathy for the Chinese people hooked on Opium.

Samuel Wells Williams, noted diplomat and missionary to China, in The Middle Kingdom writes:

“The conflict was now fairly begun; its issue between the parties so unequally matched –one having almost nothing but the right on its side, the other assisted by every material and physical advantage-could easily be foreseen” and again, after speaking of it as being unjust and immoral, he concludes “Great Britain, the first Christian power, really waged this war against the pagan monarch who had only endeavored to put down a vice harmful to his people.”

The tears are making it difficult to read Narcotic Culture: A History of Drugs in China by Frank Dikötter, Professor of the Modern History of China, University of London. Professor Dikötter believes the Opium Myth is about prohibition:

“An essential first step in demythologising the Chinese opium problem is to understand the [lack of] scientific evidence about the drug’s impact… upon the health of the individual consumer’ and as the historian of India Richard Newman writes: The China field “should be criticized for uncritically reproducing the anti-opium stance adopted by prohibitionist missionaries in the late nineteenth century.” [2]

It Was A Lie. The Question Is Why?

The revolutions in Europe and American had ended. The world was about to enter the Industrial Age.

The Global Financial Elite (TGFE, a non-conspiracy acronym [3]) needed an excuse to invade the country and overthrow the Manchu dynasty, just in case the rest of the world decided to emulate China; like they almost did during the McCarthy era. [4]

Under the enlightened monarchies of the Manchu and Ming Dynasties, the country thrived and worked together and was sustainable before it was “in” to recycle and farm without pesticides.

What would our world look like today if the U.S. emulated the China in 1850?

Answer: The United Nations would not have written the massive report, the GEO4, that says all of humanity is at serious risk due to “the dangers of climate change, water scarcity, dwindling fish stocks and the pressures on the land and the extinction of species.”

[2] Newman shows that opium rarely undermined the health or shortened the lives of the majority of smokers in nineteenth-century China. Others have underlined that in England, where opium was widely available from local shops during the nineteenth century, frequent and chronic users did not suffer detrimental effects from opium: many enjoyed good health well into their eighties. In South Asia a diversity of evidence offered by both Indian and British physicians in the nineteenth century showed that opium pills were commonly taken throughout the subcontinent without creating serious social or physical damage, in contrast to the strong spirits imported from abroad in the face of opposition from both the Hindu and Muslim communities.

[4] 1949, according to the authors, was a pivotal year for McCarthyism this system. Our irrational fear of communism and Castro never made sense. McCarthyism is a term used to describe the making of accusations of disloyalty, subversion, or treason without proper regard for evidence. The term has its origins in the period in the United States known as the Second Red Scare, lasting roughly from the late 1940s to the late 1950s, coincides exactly with the period the communist experiment in China was successful.

Mistakes?  Consider the Communists First Five-Year Plan

When Communism became the ideology of the people in 1949, they fought pollution during the successful First Five-Year Plan from 1953-57 and were moving towards 100% recycling until 1958 when the Great Leap Forward became the Great Leap Famine and between 16.5 million and 40 million people died before the experiment came to an end in 1961.

During the Five-Year Plan, Chinese articles and journals extolled the benefits of recycling. “When a case of pollution arose, there was scientific and collective action to undo the damage. The most harmful industrial wastewater is that which contains phenol. If this kind of poisonous industrial water is drained into a body of water (such as a river, lake, or sea) before treatment, it will pollute the water, kill the fish, and endanger the health of the people. And if such poisonous waste water is drained into the farmland, it will badly affect the normal growth of the crops.”

The “Mistakes” explanation requires you believe no one in China read or studied the industrialization of the Western Countries. “Cost-benefit analyses in the U.S. show that emission reduction programs have provided much greater benefits than their costs, by a ratio of up to 40 to 1. Air pollution damage not only impacts the ecosystem but imposes major economic costs as well as, from premature mortality, increased health care and lost productivity and, more importantly, decreased crop yields.”

Professor Armstrong, who received his economics degree from Harvard in 1958, was a commercial and instrument-rated pilot who died in 2006 after leaving an Oregon air show in his beloved Hawker Hunter Mk. 5. The plane went down in a residential neighborhood, and, instead of ejecting to safety; he died when he stayed with the aircraft to avoid any casualties on the ground. Armstrong thought of himself as a pilot whose hobby was teaching economics and studying history. He was an FAA instructor for the Hawker Hunter and was authorized to certify and re-qualify pilots after lapse of proficiency. Robert’s aeronautical field expertise as commercial and instrument-rated pilot led him into a full investigation of the events surrounding 911.

Peaceful Countries do not Celebrate Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving commemorates the successful harvest and a time the Pilgrims gathered to give thanks, sharing a feast with their Native American neighbors, who had made possible their survival in the New England wilderness.

“Come, Ye Thankful People, Come” written by Henry “Dean” Alford, the gifted Christian leader of the 19th century and distinguished theologian and scholar, is considered to be one of the finest harvest and Thanksgiving hymns in all of the hymnals of Christian singing.

Writers and textbook publishers of American history have generally omitted or, if mentioned at all, glossed over historic accounts of genocide and inhumane treatment of American Indian populations.

The mythology of the American Revolution, the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights is a national story of great significance to the way the United States views itself.

The United States of America was founded on the fundamental principle of freedom of religion.  America’s Founding Fathers believed that religious freedom and a strong democratic system were inseparable but only for Christians.

The American Indians worshiped the Earth instead of Jesus Christ, and according to an interpretation of the Bible, they had no soul. Therefore, early settlers believed it was OK with God to break our word, steal their land and slaughter them like the other sentient creatures we torture and kill so we can get a hamburger for a dollar.

“The only good Indian is a dead Indian” was the battle cry as we let nothing stand in the way of our Manifest Destiny.

The Indians were not violent savage people as they are depicted in our filtered history books, movies and the Encore Western Channel.

Unlike the societies of civilized savages, the indigenous populations didn’t kill for land, resources and power. The Indians were brave warriors that fought hard to try to keep their families safe and worked together to share and provide food, clothing and shelter to people in need (like the Pilgrims).

Every Thanksgiving you will find Leigh Girl doing a live Peace Paint in memory of the Indians that were slaughtered then and throughout history.  She is sorry for what injustice has been done in the past to such a beautiful people.

“I myself am always sad on Thanksgiving when I think of the human rights violations committed against the indigenous populations all over the world, who only wanted to live in harmony with the Earth.” Visit her website www.facepaint.ws.

Actually, the American Indians presented other problems for the “white man” givers.

Indians held a special knowledge of the land and its inhabitants, and believed they were only a small part of the whole circle of life, and that each part of creation played a significant role in the contentment and survival of the other.

Indians accepted the divine idea that all things were equal and no animal, including man, held dominion over other parts of creation. American Indians, also known as the People of the Land, traditionally and historically believed, humans were created to be caretakers of the garden — Mother Earth.  They held all things of creation sacred and respected Nature.

  • Never take more than we need;
  • Thank Creator for what we have or what we will receive;
  • Use all of what we have;
  • Give away what we do not need.

Native Americans were environmental communists.

Federal Over Nightmare Express

By Elizabeth Young

The aggressive FedEx online legislative campaign to prevent the passage of the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2009 is just about everywhere these days.

[Some claim] UPS is resorting to a cynical strategy: If UPS can’t restore parity by making itself more competitive, why not cripple FedEx — with help, of course, from the Teamsters, who want FedEx employees to join their union. After all, everyone knows FedEx Drivers Aren’t Pilots.

FedEx says it’s not fair to bail out UPS just because they are having trouble competing in the overnight delivery market.

Maybe that’s true, but get this, Fred Smith’s www.BrownBailout.com campaign has to be the ultimate hypocrisy.

Why is there a Federal in Federal Express?

Fred, in an interview with Atlanta Bureau Chief Dean Foust, explains:

“For our network, I used as a model the economic activity of the Federal Reserve banking system, because it was in those days a perfect model of the economic activity in the U.S. And that’s where the [Federal Express] name came from. It just stuck in my mind. I wanted something that sounded substantial and nationwide, and American Express had already been taken [laughs].”

Well, I guess that’s possible [laughs out loud].

Federal Express, now the FedEx Corporation, has been one of the great entrepreneurial success stories of the past quarter-century — the story of how Smith built FedEx into a $27 billion delivery juggernaut has become a part of Corporate Americana.

Fred Smith, according to the biographers, had transportation in his blood.

If not for his mother, the gregarious and popular Frederick W. Smith would have never gone to college.

In 1962 Fred, a mediocre student, enrolled at Yale University.

He went out for football and typed 12-15 pages for a 1965 term paper. The paper, the legendary outline for Federal Express, was submitted to the professor of his Economics 43A class, and according to Fred, “probably made his usual C.”

Did I mention he was a member of the Skull and Bones secret society?

In 1970, Fred was on fire with his newest grade C brainchild, which “got him especially close to the Worthen Bank.” The biographers note he “landed a rare meeting with the Federal Reserve Board in order to build the nucleus of his airplane network by proposing a future contract for overnight air express services.”

Hmm, a rare meeting. Did I mention he made friends with George W. Bush and John Kerry when he was at Yale?

Below is the FedEx chronology. You are entitled to come to your own conclusions.

1970 – Smith purchased the controlling interest in an aircraft maintenance company, Ark Aviation Sales, and by 1971 turned its focus to trading used jets.

June 18, 1971 – Smith founded Federal Express with his $4 million inheritance (about $21 million in 2008 dollars), and another $91 million (about $484 million in 2008 dollars) in venture capital. Fred Smith on the Birth of FedEx

Whoa, Venture what?

Venture Capitalists wouldn’t survive long enough to be called vulture capitalists if they went around making a $484 million investment in a business model that received a mediocre grade from a Yale Economics professor.

Even a child without a degree from Yale knows that for Fred to be successful, a massive investment in infrastructure would be required. An investment made in anticipation of a mass market for an overnight service, in which the pricing would have to be downward manipulated low enough…to create demand. The Myth of “Free” Enterprise Economic System

Fred didn’t bother with any market research to justify the investment because in 1973 there weren’t millions of Americans saying to them selves, “Damn, I forgot it was Grandma’s birthday tomorrow. Why the heck isn’t there an affordable overnight service to get Granny’s birthday card delivered, before 10 a.m.?”

Or better yet, you are the ex-Tennis Pro, Michael Zausner. Michael invented Solar Recover, a natural spray to rehydrate skin when people spend too much time in the sun. Michael wants to start a business that will employ three full-time and 10 part-time employees, but his customers won’t order Solar Recover unless they can get that hydrating spray delivered overnight…for $9.95.

The overnight delivery market exists because of a downward manipulated price (cost-effective) created the demand. Silver, but no Silver Lining

You don’t send that overnight letter because it’s $9.95; it’s $9.95 to get you to send it to Granny.

History confirms Fred’s professor was generous with that C.

1972 – Fred had a couple of purple, orange and white jets and a mini-size corporate staff but the $484 million wasn’t enough startup capital, nor was there market data to lure investors to his door. In meeting after meeting, he met with negative reactions from potential investors. Fred Smith on the Birth of FedEx

Unlike most businesses, as his professor pointed out, you can’t start small and grow over time. From the outset, Fred had to build an entire network to make it work. In order to lock up enough planes for his fleet, he signed a contract to buy 23 more Falcons from Pan Am for a total of $29.1 million.

April 17, 1973 – The Federal Express is marketing itself as “the freight service company with 550-mile-per-hour delivery trucks,” but the company is losing up to a million a month. [Fred hadn’t convinced enough Americans they needed to get that important document to it’s destination by 10 a.m. the next day, so it could sit on someone’s desk unopened for the next three days.]

The Infamous Las Vegas Story

While waiting for a flight home to Memphis after being turned down for capital by General Dynamics, Fred impulsively hopped a flight to Las Vegas, where he wins $27,000 playing blackjack. Fred says, “the $27,000 wasn’t decisive, but it was an omen that things would get better.” Soon after, he raises another $11 million. [Another version of the Las Vegas story is that he won enough hands of blackjack to meet the payroll. Take a guess what the payroll would be on a company that is losing $35,000 a day. Anyway, the smoking gun is the $11 million. No one in their right mind would loan him $11, let alone $11 million, to cover less than one year of an operating loss.]

But wait, the story gets even better.

January 31, 1975 – Smith was indicted for using a forged document to obtain a $2 million bank loan [another gamble to make the payroll]. Then, shortly before midnight on that same day engulfed by his personal crisis, while driving home from his office, he hit and killed a 54-year-old black handyman. Fred left the scene, unaware he had ever hit the man.

Fortunately, in one of those coincidences that don’t happen very often, like the same person winning the lottery three weeks in a row, an off-duty policeman was directly behind him and witnessed the entire incident. Fred Smith – Federal Express Renegade

Fortunately is an understatement, without that “off-duty” policeman who would have believed Fred’s story?

The policeman was able to discern that Fred was “unaware he had ever hit the man” by noticing that Fred left the scene right after the accident. [Isn’t that called hit and run?]

And even more fortunately, Fred was found not guilty in the bank fraud trial, and soon afterwards, thanks to that off-duty policeman (and undoubtedly his friends from Yale), the hit-and-run charge was dismissed. [Whew, lucky for us Fred didn’t go to jail. Where would our legal system be without the benefit of an overnight delivery service for those time-sensitive documents?  You know the ones that involve crimes like bank frauds and hit-and-runs.]

By now, you have probably guessed his roommates at Yale got their buddies at the Federal Reserve to create a bunch of money out of thin air and loan it to Fred.

Why would the Fed help Fred make overnight package delivery so cheap only the rich could afford to use the U.S. Post Office?

The answer starts with the Brussels November 12, 2008 press release: FedEx announced that by 2020 it plans to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 20% from its fleet of 557 aircraft and improve the fuel efficiency of its 37,000 vehicles by 20%.

“Our role is to connect the world in responsible and resourceful ways.  The world faces big challenges, and we believe that collective, sustained efforts can create greater possibilities for people, businesses and nations worldwide.” – Frederick W. Smith, Chairman, President and CEO

And here comes the best part, remember the fleet of over 557 aircraft?

Fred is replacing the 727s with Boeing 757s, which will reduce the amount of CO2 his planes emit by more than 350,000 metric tons every year.

Whoa, so Fred, let’s get this straight. Your fleet of aircraft are putting at least 1,750,000 metric tons of CO2 into the atmosphere every year so I can get my screenplay on my agent’s desk the next day by 10 a.m. so he can pile it on top of all the other screenplays he can’t get around to reading until next week.

Read the following from How Much Pollution Does Air Travel Cause And What Are The Solutions To The Pollution Caused By Air Travel? and think Overnight Service and Fred’s commitment to the environment.

“Air travel is now recognized as a major source of air pollution.

And what are the solutions to the pollution caused by air travel? No one wants (We All Say) to make pollution and global warming worse. Yet no one wants to stop travelling by air to go on holiday etc., etc…so, what can be done????

Air travel causes a lot more damage to the environment via carbon emissions than any other form of transport because it burns much more fuel, and aviation fuel (kerosene) is particularly polluting. Airlines do not pay tax on their fuel so they have no incentive to use less or make their prices reflect the damage done to the environment by flying.

Some facts: Air travel cause 0.17kg/km/per person, whereas driving a car causes 0.14kg/km/per person. The world’s 16,000 commercial jet aircraft produce more than 600 million tons of CO2 annually, almost as much as the entire African continent. A return flight from London to Miami (14,207 kms) produces 2,415 kg of CO2 per passenger, more than the 2,255 kg produced annually by the average British motorist’s 16,108 km.

But as you say – it’s nice to be able to fly places! The solution really is to cut down on transport use in everyday life – cycle, walk or take the bus instead of driving. Shop close to home and go on holidays around your area. Try to limit international travel to when it is absolutely necessary (use teleconferencing!), and (especially in Europe where flights are so cheap!) catch the train rather than fly! Ultimately, aviation fuel should be taxed to reflect the damage it does to the environment – and then plane flights will become more expensive so that people will only take them when necessary – and not from London to Cardiff!”

Now read the following from A Nation on Wheels: The Automobile Culture in America Since 1945, but think about FedEx’s fleet of 557 fuel-efficient aircraft and 37,000 vehicles.

“Historian Mark S. Foster has estimated that “fully one-third of the total environmental damage caused by automobiles occurred before they were sold and driven.” He cited a study that estimated that fabricating one car produced 29 tons of waste and 1,207 million cubic yards of polluted air. Extracting iron ore, bauxite, petroleum, copper, lead, and a variety of other raw materials to process steel, aluminum, plastics, glass, rubber, and other products necessary to construct automobiles consumes limited resources, uses great amounts of energy, and has serious environmental repercussions. In recent years, for example, the automotive industry in several developed countries was a major purchaser of iron and steel (30 percent), lead for batteries (46 percent), aluminum (23 percent), and platinum for exhaust fume control (41 percent). Approximately 75 percent of the cost of the industry’s power comes from electricity, but the auto industry also consumes natural gas (15 percent of energy expenditures), and coal and coke (over 8 percent), as well as steam, oil, and propane.

The following is about Vehicle assembly plants, but think Airplanes about Airplane manufacturing facilities.

Vehicle assembly plants themselves are major polluters. In the early 1990s, there were 20 engine plants in the United States, more than 40 assembly plants, hundreds of metal stamping facilities, and thousands of suppliers. Automotive plants release sulfuric acid and other smokestack emissions into the air.

In addition, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) listed car and truck assembly plants among the top ten waste producers in the country. In 1990, the American automotive industry accounted for 1 percent of all hazardous waste or 172 kg per vehicle produced. Paint shops, in particular, utilize large quantities of solvents; in the State of Michigan, these paint-shop solvents account for almost one-fourth of all pollution from volatile organic compounds. The introduction of water-based paints was meant to drastically reduce solvent contamination, but the retrofitting of paint shops is costly, and the large quantities of water used there and elsewhere in the plants do not leave as clean as when they entered. The network of supply industries, building infrastructure, and transportation systems necessary to produce and deliver vehicles to the consumer also must be factored into any discussion of the environmental impact of the automobile.”

Fred and FedEx are committed to long-term environmental goals to save the environment.

He recently told his pilots to idle less on the runway.

Endnotes and Appendices for: The Federal Reserve(s) are (four) Dummies

Appendix A

The Story of Stuff, an animated video about the underside of our consumer society, believes the scoundrels are a bloated corporation sporting a top hat with a dollar sign etched on its front.

Film narrator, Annie Leonard argues our environmental damage is the result of the greedy corporations externalizing costs (shift them onto the public and the environment) so they can make more money.

But that premise is contradicted on film when Annie stands in line to buy a radio for $4.99 and correctly realizes the price couldn’t possibly capture the cost of the radio but incorrectly concludes that the greedy corporations pollute the environment so they can make more profit. [2]

If profits were the motive, then why wasn’t the radio $5.99? A price anyone would consider a “throw away” or loss leader.

We have come to believe that everything wrong in America is about someone getting rich while we are getting swindled.

That our economy runs on profits is a true statement, but imagine how much those moneygrubbers would have made if the radio was $5.99.

That $1.00 would be 100% pure profit.

The swindlers and scoundrels downward-manipulate the costs of what was in 1910 their real wealth:

Raw materials, commodities, copper, iron ore, petroleum, lead, silver and gold, to industry at prices lower, not higher as you would expect, so the corporations can still make a profit selling you a radio for $4.99.

Downward-manipulation is an uneconomic aberration discovered in the precious metals market by the noted silver analyst Ted Butler.

We are conditioned to believe that prices are always inflated so the greedy corporations can make more money but Ted Butler’s research confirmed the price of silver has been manipulated to stay at the $4-5 price range for years. The beneficiaries of this type of manipulation are the consumers since industrial users can sell their products cheaply and still make a profit. (The Myth of the “Free” Enterprise Economic System)

Behind every consumer society is the reality of a credit-based monetary system and a fiat currency. Behind every fiat currency is a Federal Reserve or a Central Bank controlled by The Global Financial Elite including, Rockefeller, Kuhn, Loeb and J.P. Morgan, Ted Butler’s prime suspect in the “ongoing intentional not accidental” great crime of keeping the price of silver low so consumers can buy a lot more ‘radio’ (silver) for their dollar.” (The Real Story, Theodore Butler, Silver But No Silver Lining)

Annie should be asking herself why those scoundrels intentionally sold their raw materials cheaply so just about everyone could afford the American Dream, a nightmare for the Planet. Was the 2008 Financial Collapse An Inside Job?

TGFE have a number of tricks up their sleeves to make consumerism affordable.

Butler’s investigation has identified JP Morgan Chase, one of the founding members of the Federal Reserve, as the prime suspect, in the “ongoing intentional, not accidental” great crime of keeping the price of commodities low so the middle class can afford the American dream, a nightmare for the planet. The Real Story, By: Theodore Butler
Appendix B

[From Chapter 1 of Secrets of the Federal Reserve The London Connection By Eustace Mullins]

On the night of November 22, 1910, a group of newspaper reporters stood disconsolately in the railway station at Hoboken, New Jersey. They had just watched a delegation of the nation’s leading financiers, leave the station on a secret mission.

It would be years before they discovered what that mission was, and even then they would not understand [the mission or] that the history of the United States underwent a drastic change as the financiers compiled a scientific currency system for the United States, the real birth of the present Federal Reserve System.

The Jekyll Island Club was chosen as the place to draft the plan for control of the money and credit of the people of the United States, not only because of its isolation, but also because it was the private preserve of the people who were drafting the plan.

The New York Times later noted, on May 3, 1931, in commenting on the death of George F. Baker, one of J.P. Morgan’s closest associates, that “One-sixth of the total wealth of the world was represented by the members of the Jekyll Island Club.” Membership was by inheritance only.”

Why all the secrecy? Why this thousand mile trip in a closed railway car to a remote hunting club? Ostensibly, it was to carry out a program of public service, to prepare banking reform which would be a boon to the people of the United States, which had been ordered by the National Monetary Commission.

The participants were no strangers to public benefactions. Usually, their names were inscribed on brass plaques, or on the exteriors of buildings which they had donated. This was not the procedure which they followed at Jekyll Island. No brass plaque was ever erected to mark the selfless actions of those who met at their private hunt club in 1910 to improve the lot of every citizen of the United States.

In fact, no benefaction took place at Jekyll Island. The Aldrich group journeyed there in private to write the banking and currency legislation which the National Monetary Commission had been ordered to prepare in public. At stake was the future control of the money and credit of the United States. If any genuine monetary reform had been prepared and presented to Congress, it would have ended the power of the elitist one world money creators. Jekyll Island ensured that a central bank would be established in the United States which would give these bankers everything they had always wanted. [End excerpt from Chapter 1 of Secrets of the Federal Reserve]

Revisionist History suggests that benefaction did in fact take place at Jekyll Island.

The huddled masses should be thanking those scoundrels at the Federal Reserve for 75 years of banking and currency regulations: It resulted in unprecedented prosperity, but don’t forget to blame them because the American dream, according to the GEO4, a massive United Nations Report, put the planet at the unknown points of no return.”

Claims about historically significant amount of wealth

According to the New York Times obituary, “it was estimated after Mr. Rockefeller retired from business that he had accumulated close to $1,500,000,000 out of the earnings of the Standard Oil trust and out of his other investments. This was probably the greatest amount of wealth that any private citizen had ever been able to accumulate by his own efforts.”

Notwithstanding these varied aspects of his public life, Rockefeller may ultimately be remembered simply for the raw size of his wealth. In 1902, an audit showed Rockefeller was worth about $200 million—compared to the total national GDP of $101 billion then. His wealth continued to grow significantly (in line with U.S. economic growth) after as the demand for gasoline soared, eventually reaching about $900 million on the eve of WWI, including significant interests in banking, shipping, mining, railroads, and other industries. By the time of his death in 1937, Rockefeller’s remaining fortune, largely tied up in permanent family trusts, was estimated at $1.4 billion. According to some methods of wealth calculation, Rockefeller’s net worth over the last decades of his life would easily place him as the wealthiest known person in recent history. As a percentage of the United States’ GDP, no other American fortune—including Bill Gates or Sam Walton—would even come close. http://www.johndrockefeller.org
Appendix C

The process that the Federal Reserve, or any bank, uses to create money “consists of making an entry in a book, that is all,” says Graham Towers, governor of the Bank of Canada. “Each and every time a bank makes a loan (a debt) . . . new bank credit is created—brand new money.”

While a gold-backed currency and even greenbacks have their limits, the Bonesmen’s manufactured bank money has no commoditization potential and therefore no limit. Making matters worse, the central banks are allowed to charge interest on borrowed money that never existed in the first place. The money we borrow from the Federal Reserve is money created out of thin air, which we use to buy stuff, but we have to pay interest on those loans, and this becomes what is known as the national debt.

Congressman Jerry Voorhis, writing in 1973, explained how monetary expansion is built on the 10% reserve requirement imposed by the Fed:

“For every $1 or $1.50 which people – or the government – deposit in a bank, the banking system can create (out of thin air and by the stroke of a pen) some $10 of checkbook money or demand deposits. It can lend all that $10 into circulation at interest just so long as it has the $1 or a little more in reserve to back it up.”

That means that if the Federal Reserve were operating like a commercial bank, it could take its $500 billion in U.S. securities and fan them into $5 trillion in loans; and that appears to be exactly what it has been doing.

Money control, Gustav Stolper wrote in “This Age of Fables” is, “the supreme and most comprehensive of all governmental controls” and the 1838 quote:

“Permit me to issue and control the money of a nation, and I care not who makes its laws” (Incorrectly attributed to Mayer Amschel Rothschild who died in 1812), reflects the “maxim” of the House of Rothschild.

However, “money lenders of the Old World” cannot be talking about profits unless you believe The Rothschilds didn’t understand that they were about to give up $500 trillion of real wealth in exchange for $500 trillion pieces of worthless fiat currency.

During the last 100 years, those swindlers and scoundrels were able to distort the structure of relative prices; generate misallocations of labor and capital throughout the economy; rationalize new governmental interventions in the face of the market “instability” manipulate the patterns of and the profits from international trade which resulted in the Industrial Revolution, the Great Depression, the stagflation of the 1970s, the dot-com and the housing market bubbles and unprecedented prosperity for the middle class.

Would we have a financial crisis to go with our environmental crisis if Wilson hadn’t ruined the country when he gave away the people’s right to print their own money and we had our own bank?

No.

North Dakota is the only state in the union to own its own bank. The Bank of North Dakota (BND) was established by the state legislature in 1919 specifically to free farmers and small businessmen from the clutches of out-of-state bankers and railroad men.

The state of North Dakota, one of only two states (along with Montana) expected to meet its budget in 2010. North Dakota was also the only state to actually gain jobs in 2009 while other states were losing them. Since 2000, North Dakota’s GNP has grown 56 percent, personal income has grown 43 percent and wages have grown 34 percent. North Dakota in 2009, had a budget surplus of $1.3 billion, the largest it ever had – in a state with a population of 700,000. (The North Dakota Model for Capitalizing Community Banks, Ellen Brown)

North Dakota, a land of small farms and towns more interested in remaining a successful experiment in democracy rather than an economic power.

At this point, it is advantageous to consider the efforts of writer Andrew Hitchcock:

“The Rothschilds have been in control of the world for a very long time, their tentacles reaching into many aspects of our daily lives, and are the hidden hand behind all the social cataclysms in history: The French and American Revolution, the Civil War, World Wars, the Industrial Revolution, the Federal Reserve (and our consumer society).”

John Sherman, a Rothschild protégé in a letter sent to New York bankers on June 25, 1863, in support of the then proposed National Banking Act, wrote:

“The few who understand the system, will either be so interested in its profits, or so dependent on its favors that there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of people, mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantages…will bear its burden without complaint, and perhaps without suspecting that the system is inimical to their best interests.” (World War II And Pound, 1940-1945: The Anti-Semite Revealed, Ellen Cardona)

In other words, the “few that understand the system”, without a 20th century environmental perspective of the middle class “trashing the planet”, would not be capable of comprehending a system that would put the planet at the “unknown points of no return” because the environmental damage and pollution was the goal and not the unintended consequences of the Industrial Revolution and our consumer society.

The Federal Reserve Act of 1913

One of the most important domestic acts in the nation’s history took the power to create money from the people and gave it to the robber barons of our filtered history books, in theory, for profit.

The Federal Reserve was instrumental in the development of America into a world power.

The United States, in its first decades, was a land of small farms and nearby towns with few cities of any consequence. The young nation seemed far more interested in becoming a successful experiment in democracy, rather than an economic power.

A central bank, necessary for a consumer society, large cities, a common medium of exchange and a mechanism to regulate that medium were greeted with hostility, since many of the nation’s leaders disdained the urban life.

Anyone who spoke against the “Creature from Jekyll Island” by G. Edward Griffin was silenced.

Presidents Garfield and McKinley, outspoken champions of “sound” money and opponents of a central bank, were suspiciously silenced permanently.

The conflict between rural values and urban reality ended when Woodrow Wilson “unwittingly ruined his country” and signed into law the legislation that put “the growth of the nation . . . and all our activities in the hands of a few scoundrels (men).”

Once those scoundrels got control of the supply of money in the Franklin Roosevelt Administration, they began to buy government securities at the rate of ten million dollars a week for 10 weeks, and created one hundred million dollars in new (checkbook) currency, which alleviated the critical famine of money and credit, and the factories started hiring people again. (Secrets of the Federal Reserve, Eustace Mullins)

Now, those scoundrels remain in control of the supply of money in the Barack Obama Administration, they are making generous interest payments to the banks for “parking” their TARP and other government taxpayer bailout money, which is aggravating the critical famine of money and credit, and the factories started laying people off (263,000 people in September bringing the total to 39 million Americans who are no longer working or looking for work).

One of the more absurd notions that found its way into the history books and the writings of economic experts, is that somehow these Robinhood barons (swindlers and scoundrels of history) were made wealthier by manipulating the Monopoly money they created out of “thin air” used to “alleviated the critical famine of money and credit” so the factories could start hiring people again and finance our consumer society.

The two principal Rothschild representatives in New York, J. P. Morgan Co., and Kuhn, Loeb & Co. were the firms which set up the Jekyll Island Conference at which the Federal Reserve Act was drafted, who directed the subsequent successful campaign to have the plan enacted into law by Congress, and who purchased the controlling amounts of stock in the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in 1914.

These firms had their principal officers appointed to the Federal Reserve Board of Governors and the Federal Advisory Council in 1914. In 1914 a few families (blood or business related) owning controlling stock in existing banks (such as in New York City) caused those banks to purchase controlling shares in the Federal Reserve regional banks.” The London Connection, Eustace Mullins.

The World Pivoted On The Battle Of Waterloo

The vast accumulation of financial and natural resources of the House of Rothschild Global Financial Empire is legendary.

“And there was no news more precious than the (predetermined) outcome at Waterloo…”

Considered the turning point in history, exploiting the Battle of Waterloo gave the Rothschild family complete financial control of Europe, and soon after, the world.

According to one source, at the conclusion of the revolutions in the late 1800s and when the planet was still in ecological balance, “it was estimated the House of Rothschild controlled almost half the wealth of the world.” National Cyclopaedia d American Biography by Antony Sutton.

[3] The Global Financial Elite (TGFE, a variation of TPTB, a non-conspiracy term coined by G. William Domhoff, a Research Professor at the University of California [11]) are the Rothschilds of Europe, Lazard Freres (Eugene Meyer), Kuhn Loeb Company, Warburg Company, Lehman Brothers, Goldman Sachs, the Rockefeller family, and the J.P. Morgan interests. These interests have merged and consolidated in recent years, so that the control is much more concentrated. National Bank of Commerce is now Morgan Guaranty Trust Company. Lehman Brothers has merged with Kuhn, Loeb Company, First National Bank has merged with the National City Bank, and in the other eleven Federal Reserve Districts, these same shareholders indirectly own or control shares in those banks, with the other shares owned by the leading families in those areas who own or control the principal industries in these regions. The “local” families set up regional councils, on orders from New York, of such groups as the Council on Foreign Relations, The Trilateral Commission, and other instruments of control devised by their masters. They finance and control political developments in their area, name candidates, and are seldom successfully opposed in their plans.

[6] It is now mathematically impossible for the U.S. government to pay off the U.S. national debt. The truth is that the U.S. government now owes more dollars than actually exist directly and indirectly to the Federal Reserve. Even if the U.S. government were to go out and take every single piece of monopoly money from every single American bank, business and taxpayer, they would still be massively in debt.

Former comptroller general of the GAO, David Walker, estimates it will require over 10% growth from now until the end of time; something that has never happened, will never happen and is little more than a pipe dream.

[7] Two weeks after taking office, Reagan addressed the nation on the economy as such:

“By 1960 our national debt stood at $284 billion. Today the debt is $934 billion. We can leave our children with an un-repayable massive debt and a shattered economy, or we can leave them liberty in a land where every individual has the opportunity to be whatever God intended us to be. Together we can forge a new beginning for America.”

In the same speech, Reagan displays his innocence of Federal Reserve politics, “Now, in all of this we will, of course, work closely with the Federal Reserve System toward the objective of a stable monetary policy.”

On March 26, 1981 Reagan signs Executive Order 12301 establishing the Presidential Council on Integrity & Efficiency to review federal programs for inefficiencies and corruption.

Predictably, four days later, the Federal Reserve and H.W. Bush “works with” John Hinckley Jr. to instruct Reagan on the first lesson of Federal Reserve politics. A president can be more popular than the vice president, but not always more powerful.

Although the Bush and Hinckley family had long, close ties overlooked by the press— the brother of the man who tried to kill the president was acquainted with the son of the man who would have become president if the attack had been successful—the family connection between Scott Hinckley and Neil Bush did not escape Alexander Haig, who, after the Reagan assassination attempt, temporarily prevented Vice President Bush from taking control of the White House.

Reagan learned the lesson: he was a figurehead relegated to witnessing the growth of America’s hyper-consumer society and national debt from the sidelines.

[8] The Fed has been a hotbed of radically experimental activity in the past year. Ben Gisin is a former banker who has long been tracking the Fed’s statistical releases. He says he has never seen anything like it. Assets have been magically appearing on the Fed’s balance sheet, and they are not coming from any traditional source.

What is extraordinary is that the money is being used to make commercial loans. Consider the radical moves the Fed has already been taking in the last year. Without so much as a by-your-leave from Congress, the Fed just “monetized” $1.2 trillion in private debt, turning commercial loans into money.

If private banks and private corporations now have multi-billion dollar credit lines with the Federal Reserve, then Congress should have one too. In fact Congress, which gave the Fed its charter to create the national money supply, should have been the first in line.

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC): Why Isn’t James Bond in this Picture?

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and the doomsday experiment, originally scheduled for November 11, makes more sense if the LHC was a double-O-7 plot with a Large High-Powered Diamond-Encrusted Collider (LHPDEC), built secretly by CERN for SPECTRE (Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion). [1]

The evil genius and super villain, Ernst Stavro Blofeld, would have appeared at midnight November 10 on the world wide web and threatened to heat up the planet to say, ten trillion degrees with 3.5 trillion volts of electricity unless he gets the diamonds, gold or money.

What a shame that “Life” doesn’t imitate double-O-7 Art.

November 11, 2010 [1]

I am obsessed with stopping the CERN experiment (the electrocution of the Earth).

At the worst, it will electrocute the Earth and, at the very worst, it will electrocute the Earth and extinguish all of humanity in a trillionth of a second. While I wouldn’t have bet November 11 would have been the end of the world (it wasn’t), that’s not the point. The Earth got shocked with 3.5 trillion volts of electricity, and that wasn’t right. [2]

Strangelets, Black Holes and the GOD Particle by Dr. Tom Termotto

Dr. Tom Termotto is a noted BP Oil Spill activist who heads up the ongoing Gulf Oil Spill Remediation Conference.  In this and other capacities he worked directly and indirectly with all five Gulf State Governments concerning the mitigation of the spill, as well as the remediation of the Gulf of Mexico (GOM).  One of his companies made contact with the Russian Government, as well as President Vladimir Putin, from whom assurances were given regarding the use of the manned deep submergence vehicles MIR 1 and 2 in the GOM operation.

Strangelets, Black Holes and the GOD Particle presents a motive for the CERN scientists: “Their goal is to be God. And, especially to attain divine immortality.” He further commented that some at the very top of the pyramid really do want to live forever in the flesh without fear of ever dying. And that their inordinate fear of death arose from the way they chose to live their lives.

“Their first goal is to play God. And to “play” with everything in God’s Creation.

In light of this understanding, it is clear that those who pursue these very mundane technological goals are either besides themselves with fright about the prospect of one day having to meet their Maker, or drunk with the delusion that they can somehow outplay, and live as long as, their Maker.”

This got me thinking. What if those who pull the levers of power at the very top of the pyramid aren’t using the LHC and the CERN scientists to find Higgs boson (a very, very tiny god), but are electrocuting (torture) the Earth as a way to attain immortality?

What a great idea for a screenplay:

Title: You only live Once; We Can Live Forever

LOG LINE:

James Bond, 007, is loaned out to Center for Research on Globalization. His mission is to find out why The Global Financial Elite (TGFE) haven’t announced the birth of the New World Order.

Bond discovers a metaphysical struggle with the Earth (Gaea) and that the unprecedented environmental damage and pollution was the goal and not the unintended consequence of our consumer society.

“The All Seeing Eye” – the Eye of Lucifer inside the capstone has not yet been placed upon the top of the pyramid on the $1 bill because TGFE hasn’t successfully overcome the earth.

The film will keep your brain on the edge of your seat, as this thought-provoking adventure will force you to re-examine everything you think is true. Viewer discretion is advised. The information presented herein has been known to cause Cognitive Dissonance. [3]

Long Synopsis (with some dialogue):

“You Only Live Once” is the first James Bond film to discard the entire Fleming plot line; the suave and debonair Agent 007 pursuing hot safe sex (using his gun) with a barrage of beautiful and seductive women, while at the same time he is in safe, hot pursuit (using his Beretta 418) of the rich and ingenious criminal masterminds, who makes sure he stays one step ahead, to pursue the hot perfect crime…safely another day.

“You Only Live Once” has the suave and debonair Agent 007 married to Moneyhoney and in hot pursuit of TGFE. No one dies until the end when a prominent energy expert apparently drowns in his bathtub. An entirely new thought-provoking 007 twist.

The film is centered around the New World Order Conspiracy popularized by the works of F. William Engdahl. F.W. writes about a global financial elite (TGFE) who rule the world from behind the scenes by controlling the political and financial organizations of almost every country in the world. [4]

F.W., on any day of the week, can be found writing prolifically at Michel Chossudovsky’s Center for Research on Globalization (www.globalresearch.ca).

F.W. and Michel (and just about everyone else in the world) know about their evil plans, but no one knows why they haven’t established their New World Order upon all nations of the world.

TGFE have had everything in place to depopulate and enslave about 500 million useful eaters since the 60s. JFK signed Executive Orders 10995 through 11005 in 1962. [5]

[Opening Scene: Interior executive board room Day, The Center for Research on Globalization where Michel Chossudovsky and F.W. Engdahl, looking perplexed, are discussing the 2008 World Wide Financial Collapse.] The Bank of the Fed is Closed…Forever

michel: F.W., what the hell is going on? Why did they pull the plug on the economy and why is Barack Obama, a 20th century Martin Luther King, drilling holes in the earth?

f.w.: I haven’t a clue. This whole thing is making me look stupid and is hurting my book sales at Amazon. Kissinger said the 5.5 billion useless eaters would be gone when Monsanto got GMOs and the terminator seed. I don’t get it.

michel: I have an idea. The last Bond film about teaching people to love chickens was a flop. Let’s see if MGM will loan us 007.

[16:00 April 20, 2010: Cut to the interior executive boardroom at the Center for Research on Globalization. Seated around the table are Max Keiser, Webster Tarpley, Peter Schiff, Richard Daughty (The Mogambo Guru), Lew Rockwell and Alan Greenspan. Michel introduces a man who needs no introduction, James Bond, 007.]

007: Gentlemen, “it ain’t what you don’t know that gets you into trouble. It’s what you know for sure that just ain’t so.”  And what you think you know for sure, “that just ain’t so,” is that money equals wealth.

As you are well aware the creation of money was “privatized,” as in taken over by TGFE, the private money lenders, when Woodrow Wilson signed into law the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, and ruined the country.

1913 would be the last day in history when money was equal to wealth.

[Silence falls over the room as everyone looks puzzled.]

[007 holds up a fistful of $10 money bills. Lew Rockwell (agitated) starts to speak when Bond cuts him off.]

007: One of the more absurd notions that found its way into the Ludwig Von Mises Institute, the history books, and the financial writings of the “experts,” is that somehow the international bankers, the swindlers and scoundrels of history (TGFE), were made wealthier by accumulating the  money they printed.

[007 holds up a fistful of $500 money bills.]

In the late 1800s, the power behind the TGFE controlled almost half the wealth of the world. [6]

In 1910 when the Federal Reserve was born, TGFE owned or controlled 1/6th of the world’s wealth: real wealth raw materials, commodities, iron ore, petroleum, lead, copper, silver and gold – not the worthless fiat currency we call money. [7]

[007 holds up a fistful of $1,000 money bills.]

Does anyone, anyone, Lew, Max, Peter, Webster, Alan, know what happened to the real wealth TGFE had in 1910?

What about you Richard? They call you the Guru. Where do you think the scoundrel’s real wealth is today?

[The Guru is flummoxed. 007 is about to speak when Greenspan holds up his right hand.]

greenspan: Their real wealth was consumed, as in used up, giving the middle class 75 years of unprecedented prosperity in the houses, second houses, RVs, and “Stuff” manufactured from TGFE’s raw materials.

TGFE gave up their real wealth so they could employ the middle class in building airplanes, ships, cars, RVs, SUVs, office buildings, freeways and shopping malls from the raw materials they owned or controlled in 1910.

007: I forgot Alan worked at the Fed. All right anyone, anyone but Alan: what did the men behind the Fed, who had the real wealth in 1910, get in return?

[The attendees are now talking among themselves, trying to agree on an answer.]

007: Here’s a hint?

[007 holds up a fistful of $1,000,000 money bills.]

the guru: Even a Junior Mogambo Ranger (Robert Singer) would know the answer. The fiat currency they printed.

[The attendees all nod in agreement]

007: Aha! Exactly Richard! So my last and final question: How do you get rich trading real wealth for about $500 trillion of the money you printed? [8]

attendees [chiming together]: You don’t, you don’t. You can’t get rich printing your own  money! [9]

f.w.: Well, yes but they got the power. No one can go shopping for all that “stuff” without the  money they printed.

[Everyone GASPS but Alan]

everyone at the table: [yells out in unison] Oh my god, the environmental damage and pollution was the goal and not the unintended consequence of our consumer society.

[Bond, smiling that his dialectic approach worked, points to a screen and begins a Power Point presentation]

slide #1: TGFE wealth was “cut, mined and hauled away,” so that Americans could have that cheap stuff that according to a massive United Nations report, the GEO4, put humanity at serious risk due to “the dangers of climate change, water scarcity, dwindling fish stocks and the pressures on the land and the extinction of species,” because TGFE exchanged their real wealth for $500 trillion of the  money their very own Federal Reserve Banks printed.”

There are only three possibilities for why the TGFE financed the American Dream, a nightmare for the planet:

  1. TGFE are inept, clueless, or just “stupid” because they didn’t understand they were exchanging real wealth for $500 trillion of fiat currency.
  2. TGFE are really benevolent and wanted the profane (middle class) to have the highest standard of living for the last 75 years and didn’t know the planet would be in “dire environmental straits because humanity’s footprint (its environmental demand) is 21.9 hectares per person while the Earth’s biological capacity is, on average, only 15.7 hectares per person.”
  3. TGFE are in a metaphysical war with Mother Earth (Gaea) and, until October 2008, was using humans to weaken the planet with environmental damage and pollution.

[End of slide #1, Liberté, Enlightenté, Entitleté ]

everyone: [shouting together] It’s three; it’s three. The first one makes no Cents and the second one makes no Sense.

slide #2: TGFE are in a metaphysical war with Mother Earth (Gaea) and, until October 2008, they were using humans to weaken the planet with environmental damage and pollution. The Bank of the Fed is Closed…Forever

TGFE believed if they gave up their real wealth: Raw materials, commodities,, iron ore, petroleum, lead, copper, silver and gold and exchanged it for $500 trillion of the fiat currency ( money) they created out of thin air (so the middle class could live the American Dream, a nightmare for Gaea), they would attain immortality in a period known as the New World Order.

The New Heavens and the New Earth (Millennium) is the eternal destination and a thousand years of peace and plenty and paradise on Earth for TGFE, Illuminati, Bilderbergers, CFR and the other secret societies (righteous people), if they win the metaphysical struggle.

In the last quarter of 2008, TGFE determined their plan did not succeed: They were unable to defeat the Earth (Gaea).

Gehenna and the abyss is the eternal destination and a thousand years of punishment for TGFE, the Illuminati, Bilderbergers, CFR and the other secret societies (the evil, wicked people of the world).

TGFE did not wish to spend eternity in Hell, so they are pursuing a strategy of drilling holes in the earth prolonging the inevitable looking for a heretofore, undiscovered vulnerability deep below the Earth’s crust.

[End of slide #2]

f.w.: Now I know what they have been waiting for; they haven’t won the battle with the Earth.

007: Think about it, that Millennium nonsense in the Bible makes no sense unless it’s for TGFE, the Bilderbergers, the CFR and the other secret societies. A thousand years of peace, plenty and paradise for the profane (the middle class) with a free gift of salvation from Yahweh…I doubt it. (An Ominous Drilling Sign for the Truth).

[The time is now 22:00. Everyone’s cell phone goes off at the same time. The room is suddenly filled with chimes, rings, Beethoven and the theme “From Russia with Love.”]

everyone: [yells out] The Deepwater Horizon drilling rig has just exploded 40 miles southeast of the Louisiana coast in the Macondo Prospect oil field!

[007 is given a new identity and is dispatched to the Gulf. He is now Dr. Tom Termotto, working directly and indirectly with all five Gulf State Governors.

[Cut to Interior Termotto’s Florida office day, where he and Moneyhoney are watching the June 15, 2010, Barack Obama press conference on a wide screen monitor.]

Obama addresses the nation on the BP Oil Spill Disaster:

“The millions of gallons of oil that have spilled into the Gulf of Mexico are more like an epidemic, one that we will be fighting for months and even years.

But make no mistake: we will fight this spill with everything we’ve got for as long it takes.

Tonight I’d like to lay out for you what our battle plan is going forward: what we’re doing to clean up the oil, what we’re doing to help our neighbors in the Gulf, and what we’re doing to make sure that a catastrophe like this never happens again.”

007 as tom: Moneyhoney, get someone on the phone who knows about the US oil demand in a recession.

[Moneyhoney reaches Steven Kopits, the managing director of Douglas-Westwood.]

007 as tom: Hello Steve, this is Termotto, Dr. Tom Termotto, one of my companies was recently in contact with the Russian Government. What can you tell me about oil demand in a recession?

kopits: I’ll tell you what I wrote in Recession & Oil Demand: “In the current recession, oil demand briefly dropped nearly 3 million barrels per day (mbpd) from its peak, about half of which occurred in September 2008 in the aftermath of the collapse of financial markets following the bankruptcy of the investment bank Lehman Brothers.  If we allow that this will be a severe – but not catastrophic – recession, then a drop of 7%, or 1.5 mbpd of US consumption from peak to trough, is entirely possible.”

[007 Hangs up the phone and calls Michel]

tom: Michel, I just got off the phone with Steve Kopits and you won’t believe this. As you know BP finally admitted the spill is really 35,000 – 60,000 barrels per day. Now everyone is running around like chickens in my last movie, screaming their heads off about how much oil is leaking into the Gulf. Do you have any idea how much oil isn’t being leaked (consumed) in the current recession (depression)?

michel: No idea.

tom: 1,500,000 barrels per day, and get this: I just got a report from MI6 that the large oil spills washing up on the shores are from surrounding wells, not from the BP Deep Horizon Rig. The wells were designed to leak and much of the oil is actually tar, or tar balls, some weighing 2,000+ pounds.

The Horizon rig intentionally drilled into an asphalt volcano. The volcano didn’t explode because they didn’t drill into the top; they drilled into the ‘mid side’ of this particular volcano to get a soda-bottle effect. Drilling into the side permits a safely controlled release of gas, tar, liquefied asphalt, and other related gases. [10]

michel: Huh? I don’t get it.

tom: Michel, they weren’t in the Gulf drilling for oil; they were drilling holes in the Earth looking for an undiscovered vulnerability in the Earth’s crust. They found one, and the rig explosion was part 1 of an elaborate story (illusion) to cover their latest plan to take over the Earth and attain immortality.

michel: Whoa, 007, that makes sense and let me tell you why. When you look at the videos BP released, you can see the wellheads are different in each video and the booms aren’t even tied together. The beaches don’t look like they are lined with oil; it looks more like tar balls.  And the beach clean ups are obviously staged, because as soon as the press conference is over the work stops. A drilling-holes conspiracy theory would explain these anomalies. Gulf Spill: Disaster? Or a Well Organized Plan

tom: Yes, and now we know why the Gulf of Mexico is locked down by the military and is a no-fly zone. You can’t get access to the shore because they don’t want anyone to find out the oil isn’t coming from the Horizon location. What we are seeing is a massive oil gusher illusion, a very sophisticated false flag and elaborate deception designed to fool the general public, the oil industry, and the scientific community.

The gullible public will accept that incompetence and error caused a “massive” oil spill. The non-stop stories of negligence, incompetence and inaction on the part of the Obama Administration and the outrageous lack of concern for the cleanup by the BP executives, makes it easy to keep Joe Six Pack in the dark.

The scientific community requires a little more work. They are told the Transocean cutting-corners-and-using-shoddy-inferior-equipment story. Security kept anyone from getting close enough to find out the truth.

The conspirators knew the pressure from the volcano would blow out even state-of-the-art equipment. The shoddy-inferior-equipment story was another ruse to keep anyone from finding out about the metaphysical-drilling-holes story behind the BP Oil Spill story.

The experts and scientific communities accept what they are told; the well tapped into a large, high-pressure hydrocarbon pocket. Could the oil spill actually be staged? [11]

[See Headlines and Sound Bites in Endnote 12]

michel: And the Corexit9500?

tom: Evergreen Air/CIA is intentionally spraying Corexit9500 to give the conspiracy theory community a rack on which to hang their tin-foil hat.

Conspiracy theorists are so stupid they actually believe TGFE want to save  money by culling the population of African-Americans on welfare, and the seniors collecting Social Security in the Gulf States. There is even a conspiracy that they blew up the Horizon rig so they could foreclose on beachfront property.

michel: Excellent analysis, what else?

tom: Recall Obama’s speech in June, “We will be fighting for months and even years; we will fight this spill with everything we’ve got; tonight I’d like to lay out for you what our battle plan is going forward..”

You and I know Obama is an insider; he is aware of the metaphysical struggle.

The BP disaster is about the vulnerability they found 35,050 feet below the Earth’s surface.

This was a “failed-to-cap-a-well” controlled event story from the beginning.

They need to prolong the “disaster” with numerous failed attempts to stop the nonexistent leak long enough to get the public’s agreement for a Nuclear option to cap the well.

michel: Whoa, that’s a lot to take in. But wait a minute; they have all the power. Why do they need the public’s agreement to do anything?

tom: Michel, I assume you watched the JibJab videos.

[click here to join the 3,393, 978 people who viewed JibJab’s – Time for Some Campaignin’. ]

Citizens gather from both far and near, for a ritual we practice every four years. When we promise you anything you wanna hear. To win the crown we’re chasing! We spend billions of dollars to make our points clear. To get you to step and cast your vote here, then we spin you around and poke you in the rear. Yes, it’s Time for Some Campaignin’.

“We spend billions of dollars to…poke you in the rear.”

tom: Michel, you know they’ve been fixing the elections for years. 2000, 2004 and 2008 were so obvious even a child knew that it didn’t matter who you voted for; the decision was made long before the ballots were cast.

Can you guess why they spend all that money to poke us in the rear with these expensive charades?

michel: I have no clue.

tom: What is not obvious is that TGFE can’t govern us without our consent.

In other words when we vote for the lesser of two evils we agreed to be governed by evil (TGFE).

The first rule of the metaphysical struggle with the Earth is that we agree to be governed by evil, and the second, is that when it comes to harming the Earth they can’t do it without our consent. They can’t nuke the well unless we agree.

michel: Hmm, but scores of scientists from the Los Alamos National Laboratory and other government labs have gone on record against the nuclear option.

“Nothing of the sort is going on here,” Kevin Roark, a spokesman for Los Alamos in New Mexico, said in an interview. “In fact, we’re not working on any intervention ideas at all. We’re providing diagnostics and other support but nothing on the intervention side.”

michel: 007 why would the public, even the American public, agree to a solution guaranteed to make an oil spill disaster “A radioactive oil spill disaster?”

tom: Well they wouldn’t, but for two recent developments:

1. On May 29th, a “prominent energy expert” and investment banker known for predicting the oil price spike of 2008, told Bloomberg News that sending a small nuclear bomb down the leaking well is “probably the only thing we can do” to stop the leak. [2008 expose]
2. The “perfect-storm story” in the media:

    The pressure at the base of the wellhead deep under the ocean floor is approximately. 100,000 PSI.  There is no known device to cap a well with such a high PSI pressure. To further complicate things geologists using a GPS and Depth finder system have discovered a large gas bubble 15-20 miles across and tens of feet high under the ocean floor.

    A bubble of this magnitude if able to escape from under the ocean floor through a crack would cause a gas explosion that can only be described as Mt. St. Helen’s under water.

    The explosion would take place 50 miles off the Louisiana Coast, instantly releasing a toxic cloud that the winds would carry to the shorelines. This explosion would also create what is called cavitations, sinking any ships, oil structures, virtually anything floating atop the water, instantly within at least a 10-mile radius, and thus could create a tsunami, which would travel towards the coast of Florida at a speed of 400-600 miles per hour. This has the potential of putting the state of Florida under water. Gulf Coast Disaster, Is it The Perfect Storm?

    NPR reports:

    “This scares everybody — the fact that we cannot make this well stop flowing,” Suttles and BP CEO and chief spinmeister Tony Hayward is lowering expectations. This mess is officially out of control.

    One listener calls in with a “suggestion”

    “The environmental effects of all this oil spewing out are pretty bad,” he says. “Could it be that worse if we knew that a small bomb would plug the hole? I say explode it.”

    On CNN, reporter John Roberts suggested last month, “Drill a hole, drop a nuke in, and seal up the well.”

    tom: Michel, there are solutions to this crisis, but the un-elected officials, as usual, are not listening.

    The combination of a prominent energy expert and a perfect-storm story are intended to exploit the public’s frustration over the latest failed efforts to cap the well. The so-called “top-kill” operation and the  “junk shot” injection, were planned to get the public to agree to any solution… even a nuclear solution that could turn the oil spill into “a radioactive oil spill.” Message to Obama on the Sixteen barges in the Gulf

    michel: The prominent energy expert has to be Matt Simmons, Chairman of Simmons & Company International, the company he founded in 1974. Did you know that on June 21, he abruptly retired as Chairman Emeritus of Simmons & Company?

    [Fast forward to July 16, 2010 when President Obama called the apparent success of BP’s efforts to cap the well good news; “The cap on the BP Horizon well bore is still holding and the media is reporting the public beach at Gulf Shores, Alabama, had its busiest day in weeks on Saturday.”

    But underscored the problem would not be resolved until relief wells had been completed.

    “We won’t be done until we actually know that we killed the well and that we have a permanent solution in place.” ]

    [michel calls 007 (tom)]

    michel: 007, did you notice Obama is still making cryptic remarks about this disaster. He still wants to kill the well. And get this: a few days ago you couldn’t go to a Gulf Coast beach without getting arrested for a Class D felony and fined $40,000, but today you can go fishing on the pier beside the Grand Isle Bridge and throw a Frisbee on the beach. Did the Earth dodge the nuclear bullet? Should we celebrate?

    tom: No, not while Matt Simmons is still in the picture. On July 16 he was interviewed on KPFK’s Daily Briefing. When Ian Masters asked if the relief well is, or is not, going to work, Simmons interrupts and says: “it will be only the 45th announcement that something was going to work…and didn’t.”

    Simmons goes on to repeat his claim that, “The only possible solution is a small diameter low-level nuclear device inserted 18,000 feet down the well.”

    Of course, he argues it’s totally safe because the small diameter low-level nuclear device will be detonated three miles under the seabed.”

    michel: 007, What if the American public demand a nuclear solution? You as Dr. Tom Termotto have to stop this before it’s too late. What’s your plan?

    tom: Jeff Rense called me for an interview on his July 19 Radio show, I will handle it then.

    [July 19; The very first question from Jeff Rense was if Dr. Tom Termotto would consider the Matt Simmon’s nuclear option to cap the well. Tom immediately interjected and made it clear that we should never, never ever consider a nuclear option to cap the well, and went on to thoroughly invalidate and successfully challenge Matt Simmon’s position on this weighty matter as much as he could get away with during the interview. Four days later the BP well was finally capped; the Earth is spared a devastating nuclear event. Jeff Rense – Past Guests/Links …. Dr. Tom Termotto, PhD.

    Epilogue

    Headline August 8, 2010. Notice the word  “apparently” in the title:

    Matt Simmons “apparently” drowned at his home Sunday night

    NORTH HAVEN, Maine (News Center) – The Knox County Sheriff’s Department says Matthew Simmons, the founder of the Ocean Energy Institute, drowned at his house on North Haven late Sunday night.

    Simmons was a leading investment banker for the energy industry and had recently retired to work full time on the new Ocean Energy Institute.

    He was a leading proponent of offshore wind power and had started raising money to develop and build offshore turbines.

    The news release fails to mention Simmons was the leading proponent of sending a small nuclear bomb down the leaking BP well. Matt Simmons “Apparently” Drowned At His Home Sunday Night, Notice the Word “apparently” in the Title

    May 29 – Simmons, a “prominent energy expert” and investment banker known for predicting the oil price spike of 2008, tells Bloomberg News on Friday, sending a small nuclear bomb down the leaking well is “probably the only thing we can do” to stop the leak.

    [End of Long Synopsis (with some dialogue)]

    The plot may profit from an additional twist or two, but this is a tense, metaphysical suspense, peopled with well-sculpted characters that will have the audience asking thought-provoking questions:

    • Are the TGFE in a metaphysical struggle to attain immortality?
    • Was the BP Oil Spill Disaster an Illusion?
    • Do we really vote for evil when we vote for the lesser of two evils?

    The audience is entitled to come to their own conclusions. After all Matt Simmons “apparently” drowned at his home.

    Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction, or, is it the other way around?

    [1] Large Hadron Collider (LHC) generates a ‘mini-Big Bang’

    The Large Hadron Collider has successfully created a “mini-Big Bang” by smashing together lead ions instead of protons.

    The scientists working at the enormous machine on Franco-Swiss border achieved the unique conditions on 7 November. [Unique conditions? The test was scheduled for November 11 and nowhere was there a discussion, that it might be earlier due to the presence of  “unique” conditions.]

    The experiment created temperatures a million times hotter than the centre of the Sun.

    The LHC is housed in a 27km-long circular tunnel under the French-Swiss border near Geneva.

    Up until now, the world’s highest-energy particle accelerator – which is run by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) – has been colliding protons, in a bid to uncover mysteries of the Universe’s formation.

    Proton collisions could help spot the elusive Higgs boson particle and signs of new physical laws, such as a framework called supersymmetry.

    But for the next four weeks, scientists at the LHC will concentrate on analyzing the data obtained from the lead ion collisions.

    This way, they hope to learn more about the plasma the Universe was made of a millionth of a second after the Big Bang, 13.7 billion years ago.

    [2]The first picture: The Large Hadron Collider (LHC): What is China’s Three Gorges Dam Doing in this Picture? makes a case that CERN wants to upset the Earth to xx. The second The Large Hadron Collider (LHC): What is the Rapture Doing in this Picture? makes a prima facie case CERN is hell bent on electrocuting the earth to find Higgs.

    [3] Cognitive Dissonance

    [4] The Global Financial Elite (TGFE, a variation of TPTB, a non-conspiracy term coined by G. William Domhoff, a Research Professor at the University of California [11]) are the Rothschilds of Europe, Lazard Freres (Eugene Meyer), Kuhn Loeb Company, Warburg Company, Lehman Brothers, Goldman Sachs, the Rockefeller family, and the J.P. Morgan interests. These interests have merged and consolidated in recent years, so that the control is much more concentrated. National Bank of Commerce is now Morgan Guaranty Trust Company. Lehman Brothers has merged with Kuhn, Loeb Company, First National Bank has merged with the National City Bank, and in the other eleven Federal Reserve Districts, these same shareholders indirectly own or control shares in those banks, with the other shares owned by the leading families in those areas who own or control the principal industries in these regions. The “local” families set up regional councils, on orders from New York, of such groups as the Council on Foreign Relations, The Trilateral Commission, and other instruments of control devised by their masters. They finance and control political developments in their area, name candidates, and are seldom successfully opposed in their plans. Secrets of the Federal Reserve, The London Connection, Eustace Mullins

    [5] 1996, Bush 2 (Junior) signed  the Patriot Act and the Military Commissions Act of 2006, which resulted in the suspension of Habeas Corpus.

    1991, William Jefferson Rockefeller Clinton signed the Violent Crime Control Act that allowed Clinton or any president to suspend the Constitution and Constitutional rights of Americans during a “drug crisis”. It provided for the construction of detention camps, seizure of property, and military control of populated areas.

    1982, Ronald Reagan (

    actually H.W. Bush http://www.marketoracle.co.uk/Article8549.html

    []) signed into law National Security Decision Directive #47 (NSDD47, Rex 82), that allowed Reagan to implement Emergency Mobilization Preparedness. Where socio/economic regulations or other legal constraints would be waived in the event of a national emergency. The Rex 84 Program was established on the reasoning that if a “mass exodus” of illegal aliens crossed the Mexican/US border, they would be quickly rounded up and detained in detention centers by FEMA. Rex 84 allowed many military bases to be closed down and to be turned into prisons.  Rex 82 and 84 allowed the President, for any reason, to declare, earthquakes international tensions or even a financial crisis a national emergency and then FEMA can, implement Executive Orders 10995 through 11005.

    In 1962, JFK signed Executive Orders 10995 through 11005 and ended what was left of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights after the south lost the civil war.

    10995 through 11005 allowed the government to seize and control all forms of communication and their infrastructure (voice ,data, media), energy (electrical power, gas, petroleum, fuels and minerals),  transportation (vehicles , aircraft of any kind, highways, seaports, and waterways), designates the Postmaster General to operate a national registration and of course all food resources and farms.

    A president could now declare martial law and direct ,FEMA to take control of local, state, and national governments using ‘National Police Force”, formally referred to by the name of Multi Jurisdictional Task Force (MJTF), comprised of specially selected US military personnel (Blackwater) and  foreign military units carrying United Nations ID cards (because they know Americans are reluctant to fire on their fellow Americans).

    The two principal Rothschild representatives in New York, J. P. Morgan Co., and Kuhn, Loeb & Co. were the firms which set up the Jekyll Island Conference at which the Federal Reserve Act was drafted, who directed the subsequent successful campaign to have the plan enacted into law by Congress, and who purchased the controlling amounts of stock in the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in 1914.

    These firms had their principal officers appointed to the Federal Reserve Board of Governors and the Federal Advisory Council in 1914. In 1914 a few families (blood or business related) owning controlling stock in existing banks (such as in New York City) caused those banks to purchase controlling shares in the Federal Reserve regional banks.” The London Connection, Eustace Mullins.

    The World Pivoted On The Battle Of Waterloo

    The vast accumulation of financial and natural resources of the House of Rothschild Global Financial Empire is legendary.

    “And there was no news more precious than the (predetermined) outcome at Waterloo…”

    Considered the turning point in history, exploiting the Battle of Waterloo gave the Rothschild family complete financial control of Europe, and soon after, the world.

    According to one source, at the conclusion of the revolutions in the late 1800s and when the planet was still in ecological balance, “it was estimated the House of Rothschild controlled almost half the wealth of the world.”  National Cyclopedia d American Biography by Antony Sutton. The World Order by Eustice Mullins, Staunton, VA: Ezra Pound Institute of Civilization, 1985, p.92.

    [8] Quoted on 10/23/2008 by The Mogambo Guru, Richard Daughty, “Startled, I noticed it was an essay by Robert Singer, submitted to OpEdNews.com, who notes, “Behind every foreclosure and American Dream there is a fiat currency”, which I not only agree with, but I said so by loudly exclaiming, “Aha! Exactly!” An Amero For Your Thoughts

    [9] Pretend for a moment it is the beginning of the 20th century and you are one of the founding members of the Fed, Lazard Freres (Eugene Meyer), Warburg, Strong, Vanderlip or J.P. Morgan.

    You and your friends, along with the richest man in history, John D. Rockefeller, own or control one-sixth of the entire world’s wealth—the world’s real wealth: raw materials, commodities, iron ore, bauxite, petroleum, copper, lead, silver and gold. [Appendix B]

    Would you trade your real wealth for the money you created out of thin air? [Appendix C]

    Would you give up your real wealth to provide the middle class with 75 years of unprecedented prosperity in the houses, second houses, RVs, all that “stuff” manufactured from the raw materials you owned or controlled in 1910?

    Or would you give up your raw materials to employ the middle class in building airplanes, ships, cars, RVs, SUVs, office buildings, freeways and shopping malls from the raw materials you owned or controlled in 1910?

    Let’s say you own a bar of gold and a money printing press. Would you trade that bar of gold for the money you printed?

    The money you loaned (gave) to the middle class (profane) was used to consume, as in used up, the iron ore, bauxite, petroleum, copper, lead, aluminum, plastics, glass and rubber that you had in 1910.

    Even a child can understand you don’t get rich exchanging real wealth for about $500 trillion of the money you created over the last 75 years.

    [10] Could the oil spill actually be staged?

    [From BP, Illusion of a False Spill]

    *UPDATE* “Site owner, I appear to be unable to gain access to update my original post. Could you please update it for me, to read as follows: I am requesting, and gathering more intel. I hope to be able to post next week something much more substantial, “a smoking gun” of sorts, that should provide more information, a better direction for those people living in the coastal areas, and those worried for their children’s future.”

    The ‘disaster’ in the Gulf of Mexico is beyond a false flag; it’s an illusion. What I’m about to reveal will more than likely go by the wayside, and the charade will continue. The reason for writing this is not for attention, games, or folly, but to expose the biggest scam in the 21st century, and to relieve some aching hearts. There is no need for fear as this is a staged event. I cannot reveal my sources, they do go straight to the top, but hopefully what I write will echo inside of each person reading this as the truth.

    [11] Backup of the pictures from the Optisoft report, Grand Isle, signs are up all over the place… 100s of them in case it is removed.

    [12] Headlines and Sound bites

    • June 19 on the main page of AlterNet is the usual rant about social injustice and more disinformation about the BP catastrophe.
    • The President of the United States is fiddling while the Gulf bubbles. He says we are at the end of this catastrophe, when we aren’t even at the end of the beginning of the end.
    • The Coast Guard and BP seem to be doing everything out of the norm with this oil well project to allow some to wonder out loud if this is a scenario of intentional failure.
