Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

Meet Your Elites: Anne-Marie Slaughter

Ok, so I was surfing around and found this well-documented article by Tony Cartalucci about Anne-Marie Slaughter, a name I remembered reading in passing in my research. But I didn't know much about her, and upon investigating, I find her worthy to make "elite" status.

It should be noted that Slaughter has sat upon the boards of Fortune 500 corporations McDonald’s and Citigroup as well as a Council on Foreign Relations board member. She is the author of a book literally titled, “A New World Order” whose catch line is “Global governance is here.” In it she argues that such governance is done through “a complex global web of government networks.” Upon examination it is obvious to anyone who looks into these “networks” that they represent the Fortune 500, answer to no one, and apply the rule of law as an arbitrary reflection of their self-serving interests subject to change upon a political whim. Despite Slaughter’s enthusiasm for a “New World Order,” in reality it is the recipe for a corporate fascist planetary regime and constitutes the greatest threat to humanity.

Cartalucci goes on..

Slaughter begins a recent Atlantic article titled “The New Foreign Policy Frontier” by citing “corporations, foundations, NGOs, universities, think tanks, churches, civic groups, political activists, Facebook groups, and others” as the new frontier of foreign policy. She then goes on to state that US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton “insists that 21st century diplomacy must not only be government to government, but also government to society and society to society, in a process facilitated and legitimated by government.” Slaughter continues by saying, “that much broader concept opens the door to a do-it-yourself foreign policy, in which individuals and groups can invent and execute an idea — for good or ill — that can affect their own and other countries in ways that once only governments could.”

Slaughter goes on to use the “Arab Spring” as proof positive the new foreign policy paradigm is effective. She mentions her two days spent at the corporate-funded Personal Democracy Forum, which included bloggers and organizers from the contrived “Arab Spring.” She notes that other participants included “government officials, corporate executives, and the civic sector.” She claims the six months of unrest in the streets as a result of this “new foreign policy” has accomplished more than 30 years of traditional “foreign policy.”

Are we getting the picture? Just like ol' Norman Dodd said before he died, the first minutes of the Carnegie Foundation (1908) listed getting control of the State Department as a top priority. As we're discovering in my Wall Street and Bolshevik Revolution study, this occurred rapidly during WW1. These Foundations were the subject of the Reece Committee that Mr. Dodd was the lead investigator on and chief counsel Rene Wormser wrote the definitive book on. So we've got this woman who has written a book called A New World Order in which she envisions the government-corporate-foundation complex ruling the world. Don't like it? Doesn't sound like you've had enough public schoolin' boy, don't worry, you'll get your mind right... So here's my representation of Ms. Slaughter - some of these connections may not be current, but it shows what she's into:
Ok, we see that she's got CFR, Trilateral and State Dept cred. She's of the liberal persuasion, but this is key: stop thinking of people as leftists or conservatives, start thinking in terms of collectivist/globalist vs. free men. Ok? Newt Gringich is just as into all this stuff as she is; he's just a different flavor to get that half of the country to go for it under the guise of "privitization" by these huge mulitnational corproations, because businesses can't be eeevill right? What if their run by collectivists, like Mrs. Slaughter who dream and actively work toward a world without national sovereignty or individual rights? We're screwed, that's what it means

But lets look at those NGOs on the left in more detail. Chances are, you've never heard of them, so lets take a look at who's funding them and what they hope to accomplish.

Inter-American Dialogue
This group consists of only 100 members chosen from the Western Hemisphere to talk about globalization. Its newest member is the Mayor of San Antonio, who probably doesn't realize what he's been asked to join. He probably thinks he just got a great club to put on his resume and doesn't think he's contributing to the problem of eroding national sovereignty. When they get done with him, it might be a different story. Let's look at the funding sources:

Foundations and Corporations
Annie E. Casey Foundation
Christopher Reynolds Foundation
Ford Foundation
Henry Luce Foundation
Open Society Institute
Tinker Foundation
Corporation Andina de Fomento (CAF)
Inter-American Development Bank
International IDEA
Organization of American States
Pan American Development Foundation United Nations Democracy Fund (UNDF)
United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)
Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA)
Embassy of Chile
Embassy of Guatemala
Embassy of Mexico
Government of Mexico
Inter-American Foundation
Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA)
U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) 

So we got some George Soros money here courtesy of the Open Society Institute, the Ford Foundation, where Obama's mama used to work for Timmy's daddy, Pete Geitner, the UN, and all our other globalist organizations. If you research their funding, I wouldn't be surprised to find the banksters (Citigroup, Bank of America, etc.) as corporate sponsors.

Foreign Policy Foundation
Where did this thing come from? Oh, they give us a video narrated by Tom Brokaw:

Formed from the group hanging around Woodrow Wilson, huh? Obviously people of quality. Check out my post on the Establishment here to get started understanding the Inquiry.

Their Great Decisions program is an educational program that focuses on spreading globalization. Notice how they say how non-partisan they are, that's because the push to break down our Constitution has been a bi-partisan effort. As Carrol Quigley said, the two-party system is an illusion to keep the American's people energy diverted onto the fruitless effort of "throwing bums" out only to be replaced by equally globalist bums.

New America Foundation
This organizaiton was founded in 1999 by this pretty boy Ted Halstead. Its current Board of Directors is chaired by Eric Schmidt of Google fame. A lot of flowery language over there, but its just globalism, you'll not find any hoorays for the Founders or patriotic images. There's a lot of liberal bull on their education issues page. One example is "Promoting Mental Health in Young Children via Teacher Training". They also have toolkits for the classroom. Do not think that the teacher has control of what is being taught. Basically, they're told to repeat a script out of a binder. These groups will try out new stuff in select schools. Anyway, new teachers are observed to make sure they're following the script, you see. This is how they interject the green, commie agenda into even the most conservative areas, it comes in these toolkits that are attached to grant money. Please read the free online book, The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America by former Reagan Dept. of Ed official Charlotte Iserbyt for the definitive accounting of the demise of American Education.

Getting back to Anne-Marie, this woman is just an example of what is going on. Some have estimated that there are approximately 6,000 "Insiders" who are working toward the goal of world government. If you think that you can been them by boycotting McDonalds, you're not seeing the whole picture. I hope to post in the coming weeks real solutions to undermine their evil, anti-individual plans.

Notice how she promotes "democracy" as the plays the part of the "liberal" in this Colbert Report clip. This is globalist code for them controlling things. We live in a republic, something totally different. Watch this woman and Colbert play the dialectic like a cheap violin. Let's go to  China like Nixon did, huh? Well, that started a wonderful chain of events, did it not?

Well, I know that was a lot of information, but I want to get across that everything is not as it seems. Did you think that Muslims all over just got out of bed one day and said it's a good day to revolt? We know now that Ms. Slaughter and her ilk have set things in motion so to bring order out of their controlled chaos. It may be coming to our country soon.

Color Me Green - Crayola Propoganda

So I recently purchased some crayons at the local back-to-school sale. I stockpile A LOT of crayons because you know they're going to loose or eat them over time, right? Well, I was helping my 3rd grader with her 2+3+R=10 kind of problems using crayons to illustrate. While I'm waiting for her to compute things, I'm looking at the back of the box which says:

* Made with solar energy! Solar panels provide enough energy to make one billion crayons each year. Starting Spring 2011, additional panels provide energy to make a half a billion markers in the USA.

Crayola Eco-Evolution
Here are some of the ways Crayola is conserving energy and making the products you love in a more environmentally friendly way:
A new tree is planted for every one used to make our colored pencils.
Using recycled plastic in our markers keeps hundred of tons of plastic out of the landfills each year.
To learn more about other ways Crayola colors are getting greener all the time, go to

I know what you're thinking..What's the big deal? Are you against solar panels and conservation? No, I think those things are great, but the angle I'm looking at is how kids are bombarded with this green stuff all day, everyday of their little lives. When my daughter when to public school, science was all about pollution and compost. To contrast, the Apologia Homeschool science curriculum has elementary aged kids memorizing the taxonomic classes of the animal kingdom and the like. You know, real science.

It's Orwell's world we're living in and you know that green is the new red, right? So I went to investigate who owns Crayola to see what the interlock might be. Well, the parent company of Crayola is Hallmark, that's right one of the companies where Herman Cain is on the board of directors. What you take away from this is that there is considerable interlock between the board members of Hallmark and board members at some of these Fortune 500 companies you see to your right. Stupid map thing is not saving right, so I don't have a link, but the other thing I discovered was that two of Hallmark's former CEOs and a board member are affiliated with the Midwest Research Institute, which has now changed its name to MRI Global to be more fashionable. And buddy, are they all about the green. They have recently bought a great deal of office space in North Kansas City, and do a lot of contract research for the United State Government. William Hall of Hallmark family fame, is the Chairman of this nonprofit's board. So there's your answer as to why Crayola is trying to color our kids green.

Households Like Mine

I found this little toy at the New York Times via The Political Commentator that lets you see how many other households in America are like yours. My husband said to me once not too long ago that we're different. I kind of brushed it off, and he's like, no we're really, really different.

Like Mark Steyn says, the future belongs to those who show up for it.

Navy - A Force for Global Good

Here's a screen shot of the current U.S. Navy website. In case you're one of those old-timers who think that the armed forces should be used to "defend" the United States and not the entire world.

I feel like I'm living in a horrible sci-fi movie and can't change the channel. If you're new to this site, or wondering where I'm going with this, check out my disarmament post here. Also consider what we've been studying concerning the money changers that run the Federal Reserve, the IMF, and the Bank of International Settlements. With their counterfeit money, they've been able to build up this military with the support of the American people who live under the delusion that their military is going to protect them from tyranny. Meanwhile, Mexican gangs armed by that same United States Government wreak havoc on the Southwestern US. There's a reason why Jesus Christ went ape on the money changers and there's a reason that the Bible gives us hope with the following verse:
And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.

-Micah 4:3
Learning war is an active phrase I gleaned there. If you've been following my Wall St. and Bolshevik series, we're learning that certain events were set into motion. It would not at all surprise me to further learn that certain persons have been "learning" how to keep war going as it is the most profitable business in the history of the world.

Anyway, let's cheer up!

Rick Perry Makes Joseph Farah Feel Unclean

Found this out via Vox Day, that Joseph Farah had been supporting Rick Perry because he actually bought into all that social conservative jive that Perry has been pushing. But come to find out, Rick Perry is A-OK with queer marriage in NY according to his remarks at another one of our hallmark nonprofit elite institutions, the Aspen Institute.
"Our friends in New York six weeks ago passed a statute that said marriage can be between two people of the same sex," explained Perry. "And you know what? That's New York, and that's their business, and that's fine with me. That is their call. If you believe in the 10th Amendment, stay out of their business."--Rick Perry
Joseph Farah argues that if we can't get together on what marriage is, all is lost. I would contend that the government has no business saying who's married and not, the proof is in the pudding - does the marriage produce fruit? That was the old-fashioned way of looking at it. Newsflash: Fruits can't produce fruit.

Government got into the marriage business when the collectivist/progressives hijacked our country and wanted to micro-manage our lives. The only benefit to marriage to the secularists that run things is that it gives you tax advantages. If there were not a communist progressive tax system in our country, I doubt queers would be so gung-ho to get married.

Anyhoo, Vox predicts that Rick Perry will be the second coming of Fred Thompson, who you'll recall was hyped a lot in this stage of the game. Farah concludes his honest and humble column by saying:

Evidently I was fooled by Rick Perry.
I freely admit it.
I feel unclean for the nice things I have said about him to date.
Forgive me.
It's ok, Joe, better figure this out now than later.

Rick Perry - The Establishment's Ace in the Hole

May I introduce you to this fine product:
We'll all need Rosetta Stone if Rick Perry is Elected President
That's because we'll all need to speak Spanish in order to get along in the new North American Union that Rick Perry has allowed to progress in his state. He's not going to come out and boldly say that he is leasing our highways out to foreign countries, that wouldn't be a politically viable move, would it? Rick Perry has worked hard for his globalist masters to put in the Trans-Texas Corridor, which would have been a major step in dissolving the sovereignty of the three North American countries. From an old Jerome Corsi article:
In the hotly contested summer round of public hearings throughout Texas, strong local opposition was voiced to Perry's plan to build a 4,000-mile system throughout Texas over a 50-year period, removing in the process some 580,000 acres of land from public tax rolls and displacing an estimated 1 million Texans from their ranches, farms, businesses, and homes through eminent domain.
But all he has to do to get the idiots on board is talk tough and use words like "fed up" and "succession" and "yee-hah" and our publicly-schooled idiots will clap their hands and act like none of this stuff in his record exists. The pavlovian media masters wipe the whiteboard of the public memory clean once again and the conservatives of America act like something will actually be different this time, another Texan is in office, oh wait.... No that whiteboard has also been wiped clean, the last Republican did not get the federal government into every local school district's business and further socialize the health care program with a Medicare  prescription plan. No, that wasn't socialized medicine, baby steps, master, baby steps. So anyway, everything will be better with Perry as president, his name starts with a 'p', and president starts with a p, he's got alliteration going for him already. He's got real Texan boots, to boot out the liberals. yeah..
Yee- Hah!
The Rootin' Tootinest Conservative this Side of the Pecos!

The reason that I'm doing another Rick Perry post is that on the Instapundit poll, he's leading and I think that everyone who follows politics in the blogosphere ought to know exactly what they're supporting. Over at the Patriot Action Network, they'll tell you all 'bout former Al Gore campaign manager, Rick Perry  - some really disturbing information. A sizeable chunk of the TX population hates Rick Perry's guts and their opposition candidate gets a good chunk of the vote, but it's always split with the Democrat, always resulting in a Perry victory. Debra Medina got torpedoed with the charge of being a Truther, when all she said was that if the families want more of an investigation, they should get one. Which is exactly what Mrs. Sarah Palin said when asked about it, but she'll not get called a Truther. Why? I'm thinking she's going to be the Rick Perry running mate, to help all those conservatives who may be pausing at the rumors that ol' Rick isn't what he seems. Sarah will make it go down easier, to shut off the brain and pull the lever, or push the button.

But as a conservative woman, wouldn't you love to see another conservative woman in the White House? I would like to think I'm not so shallow as to vote for someone because they've got the same plumbing as me. I really want to like Sarah Palin, but unless she starts talking about the banking cartel that runs our country and is at the root of everything wrong - from funding the UN's Agenda 21 to the worldwide economic implosion, I'll know that either she's oblivious or is one of them. Either way, it ain't good.

What's this? I just found a copy of..

The Establishment Script Wizard

The part of Texas Governor should be played by a man not less than 6 feet in height and not completely butt-ugly. He should speak with a passable Texan accent.   Connecticut Yankees may need more training in this area should they wish to win the part.
The governor will be required to publicly appear "conservative" to maintain his position, do lots of photo-ops with firearms, act like a cowboy, always make a big deal of signing prolife legislation regardless of personal feelings, overall, do his best John Wayne impersonation. These little tricks of the trade will allow globalization and collectivization to advance into the United States with little or no impediment. Opponents who point out the leasing of highways to foreign corporations can always be marginalized as "kooks". We will ensure that this information doesn't make it into the Texan press by buying up outlets not in our control. No one will believe that our man would do such things as the public will always see him wrapping in the flag doing his best All-American boy impersonation. I know, I know, it is disgusting. But if we're patient, the mundanes will be at our mercy and we can stop dressing as one of them.

Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution: Chapter 4

Wall Street "Orchestrates" Revolutions all over the World

We start out by stating that at the beginning of WW1, there were two conglomerates that dominated American finance: Rockefeller's Standard Oil and Morgan's Banks. The Rockefeller Empire included the insurance companies, Equitable Life and Mutual of New York, the banking institutions, National City Bank,  United States Trust Company and Hanover National Bank. The Rockefellers also controlled the copper trust, tobacco trust, smelters trust and the entire petroleum industry. The Morgans: "were in steel, shipping, and the electrical industry; they included General Electric, the rubber trust, and railroads. Like Rockefeller, Morgan controlled financial corporations — the National Bank of Commerce and the Chase National Bank, New York Life Insurance, and the Guaranty Trust Company"

Ok, now that we have established that, let's look at what these two conglomerates did with their massive fortunes:

Revolution in Panama - 1910 

It is my contention that the representatives of this Government [United States] made possible the revolution on the isthmus of Panama. That had it not been for the interference of this Government a successful revolution could not possibly have occurred, and I contend that this Government violated the treaty of 1846. I will be able to produce evidence to show that the declaration of independence which was promulgated in Panama on the 3rd day of November, 1903, was prepared right here in New York City and carried down there — prepared in the office of Wilson (sic) Nelson Cromwell ....
-- Congressman Rainey, United States, House, Committee on Foreign Affairs, The Story of Panama, Hearings on the Rainey Resolution, 1913. p. 53.
Congressman Rainey went on to state that only ten or twelve of the top Panamanian revolutionists plus "the officers of the Panama Railroad & Steamship Co., who were under the control of William Nelson Cromwell, of New York and the State Department officials in Washington," knew about the impending revolution. The purpose of the revolution was to deprive Colombia, of which Panama was then a part, of $40 million and to acquire control of the Panama Canal.

Revolution in China - 1912
The best-documented example of Wall Street intervention in revolution is the operation of a New York syndicate in the Chinese revolution of 1912, which was led by Sun Yat-sen. Although the final gains of the syndicate remain unclear, the intention and role of the New York financing group are fully documented down to amounts of money, information on affiliated Chinese secret societies, and shipping lists of armaments to be purchased.
Revolution in Mexico - Paging Pancho

Fast and Furious ain't nothing new. 
Another case of revolution supported by New York financial institutions concerned that of Mexico in 1915-16. Von Rintelen, a German espionage agent in the United States, was accused during his May 1917 trial in New York City of attempting to "embroil" the U.S. with Mexico and Japan in order to divert ammunition then flowing to the Allies in Europe. Payment for the ammunition that was shipped from the United States to the Mexican revolutionary Pancho Villa, was made through Guaranty Trust Company. Von Rintelen's adviser, Sommerfeld, paid $380,000 via Guaranty Trust and Mississippi Valley Trust Company to the Western Cartridge Company of Alton, Illinois, for ammunition shipped to El Paso, for forwarding to Villa. This was in mid-1915. On January 10, 1916, Villa murdered seventeen American miners at Santa Isabel and on March 9, 1916, Villa raided Columbus, New Mexico, and killed eighteen more Americans.

"Where he got the bread to go? There ain't nobody knows"
Well, now you do! Paid for a job well done.

Big time commie, Lincoln Steffens writes to the power behind the throne, Col House (10/6/16):
My dear Colonel House:
Just before I left New York last Monday, I was told convincingly that "Wall Street" had completed arrangements for one more raid of Mexican bandits into the United States: to be so timed and so atrocious that it would settle the election ....
Once in power in Mexico, the Carranza government purchased additional arms in the United States. The American Gun Company contracted to ship 5,000 Mausers and a shipment license was issued by the War Trade Board for 15,000 guns and 15,000,000 rounds of ammunition. The American ambassador to Mexico, Fletcher, "flatly refused to recommend or sanction the shipment of any munitions, rifles, etc., to Carranza." However, intervention by Secretary of State Robert Lansing reduced the barrier to one of a temporary delay, and "in a short while . . . [the American Gun Company] would be permitted to make the shipment and deliver."
 Ah, there's our ol' boy Lansing making sure things go right for our collectivists overlords.
The raids upon the U.S. by the Villa and the Carranza forces were reported in the New York Times as the "Texas Revolution" (a kind of dry run for the Bolshevik Revolution) and were undertaken jointly by Germans and Bolsheviks. The testimony of John A. Walls, district attorney of Brownsville, Texas, before the 1919 Fall Committee yielded documentary evidence of the link between Bolshevik interests in the United States, German activity, and the Carranza forces in Mexico. Consequently, the Carranza government, the first in the world with a Soviet-type constitution (which was written by Trotskyites), was a government with support on Wall Street. The Carranza revolution probably could not have succeeded without American munitions and Carranza would not have remained in power as long as he did without American help.
So much for "containment" of the evil communist, socialist order. The United States government facilitated the first soviet government in the world right next door. The irony is painful.

America's Foreign Policy Forever Changed in a Moment in Time

You've got to take note of this:
In August 1914 Europe went to war. Under international law neutral countries (and the United States was neutral until April 1917) could not raise loans for belligerent countries. This was a question of law as well as morality.
When the Morgan house floated war loans for Britain and France in 1915, J.P. Morgan argued that these were not war loans at all but merely a means of facilitating international trade. Such a distinction had indeed been elaborately made by President Wilson in October 1914; he explained that the sale of bonds in the U.S. for foreign governments was in effect a loan of savings to belligerent governments and did not finance a war. On the other hand, acceptance of Treasury notes or other evidence of debt in payment for articles was only a means of facilitating trade and not of financing a war effort.
On May 94, 1916, Ambassador Francis in Petrograd sent the following cable to the State Department in Washington for forwardin to Frank Arthur Vanderlip, then chairman of the National City Bank in New York. The cable was sent in Green Cipher and was enciphered and deciphered by U.S. State Department officers in Petrograd and Washington at the taxpayers' expense (file 861.51/110).
563, May 94, 1 p.m.
For Vanderlip National City Bank New York. Five. Our previous opinions credit strengthened. We endorse plan cabled as safe investment plus very attractive speculation in roubles. In view of guarantee of exchange rate have placed rate somewhat above present market. Owing unfavorable opinion created by long delay have on own responsibility offered take twenty-five million dollars. We think large portion of all should be retained by bank and allied institutions. With clause respect customs bonds become practical lien on more than one hundred and fifty million dollars per annum customs making absolute security and secures market even if defect. We consider three [years?] option on bonds very valuable and for that reason amount of rouble credit should be enlarged by group or by distribution to close friends. American International should take block and we would inform Government. Think group should be formed at once to take and issue of bonds . . . should secure full cooperation guaranty. Suggest you see Jack personally, use every endeavor to get them really work otherwise cooperate guarantee form new group. Opportunities here during the next ten years very great along state and industrial financiering and if this transaction consummated doubtless should be established. In answering bear in mind situation regarding cable.
MacRoberts Rich.

  1.  American International Corporation is a Morgan firm that these banks would funnel their international dealings through.
  2. The word guarantee refers to the Guarantee Trust Company, another tool to move money back and forth throughout this period of history.
  3. MacRoberts is Samuel MacRoberts, the VP at National City Bank
It would appear that the United States State Department is just a cheap secretary for these banksters. Hey boy, take down this message and telegraph it to our boy in DC, who then forwards to the "man" in NYC. Nice, huh? Well, someone spoke up about the legality of allowing private corporations to use the encryption services of the US State Department:

The basic reason cited by Francis for facilitating the cables is "the hope of consummating loan which would largely increase international trade." Transmission of commercial messages using State Department facilities had been prohibited, and on June 1, 1916, Polk cabled Francis:
In view of Department's regulation contained in its circular telegraphic instruction of March fifteenth, (discontinuance of forwarding Commercial messages) 1915, please explain why messages in your 563, 565 and 575, should be communicated.
Hereafter please follow closely Department's instructions.
At the end of it all, these cables still go through and we see a chain reaction of corruption that has given us the Stage IV case of tyranny we see today.

What Are You Up to, Olaf?

Olof Aschberg was the known as the Bolshevik Banker, owner of the the Nya Banken, and big buds with all of the bankster gang.
In the summer of 1916 Olof Aschberg was in New York representing both Nya Banken and Pierre Bark, the tsarist minister of finance. Aschberg's prime business in New York, according to the New York Times (August 4, 1916), was to negotiate a $50 million loan for Russia with an American banking syndicate headed by Stillman's National City Bank. This business was concluded on June 5, 1916; the results were a Russian credit of $50 million in New York at a bank charge of 7 1/2 percent per annum, and a corresponding 150-million-ruble credit for the NCB syndicate in Russia. The New York syndicate then turned around and issued 6 1/2 percent certificates in its own name in the U.S. market to the amount of $50 million. Thus, the NCB syndicate made a profit on the $50 million loan to Russia, floated it on the American market for another profit, and obtained a 150-million-ruble credit in Russia.
During his New York visit on behalf of the tsarist Russian government, Aschberg made some prophetic comments concerning the future for America in Russia:
The opening for American capital and American initiative, with the awakening brought by the war, will be country-wide when the struggle is over. There are now many Americans in Petrograd, representatives of business firms, keeping in touch with the situation, and as soon as the change comes a huge American trade with Russia should spring up.
 Olof funneled money to the Bolsheviks through Germany. Think about it, if there had not been a Bolshevik Revolution, we would not have had a "cold war" that was the pretext for the "necessary" and permenant armament industry.

Finally, Michael Furtell, who interviewed Olof Aschberg just before his death, concludes that Bolshevik funds were indeed transferred from Germany through Nya Banken and Jacob Furstenberg in the guise of payment for goods shipped. According to Futrell, Aschberg confirmed to him that Furstenberg had a commercial business with Nya Banken and that Furstenberg had also sent funds to Petrograd. These statements are authenticated in Aschberg's memoirs (see page 70). In sum, Aschberg, through his Nya Banken, was undoubtedly a channel for funds used in the Bolshevik Revolution, and Guaranty Trust was indirectly linked through its association with Aschberg and its interest in MacGregor Grant Co., New York, agent of the Russo-Asiatic Bank, another transfer vehicle.
Check out the rest of this chapter if you want the nitty gritty details of the money being moved from the banksters to Germany and on into Russia. What I found interesting was the bankster funding of Germany during WW1!

In 1919 the Senate Overman Committee also established that Guaranty Trust had an active role in financing German World War I efforts in an "unneutral" manner. The testimony of the U.S. intelligence officer Becker makes this clear:
In this mission Hugo Schmidt [of Deutsche Bank] was very largely assisted by certain American banking institutions. It was while we were neutral, but they acted to the detriment of the British interests, and I have considerable data on the activity of the Guaranty Trust Co. in that respect, and would like to know whether the committee wishes me to go into it.
SENATOR NELSON: That is a branch of the City Bank, is it not?
SENATOR OVERMAN: If it was inimical to British interests it was unneutral, and I think you had better let it come out.
SENATOR KING: Was it an ordinary banking transaction?
MR. BECKER: That would be a matter of opinion. It has to do with camouflaging exchange so as to make it appear to be neutral exchange, when it was really German exchange on London. As a result of those operations in which the Guaranty Trust Co. mainly participated between August 1, 1914, and the time America entered the war, the Deutsche Banke in its branches in South America succeeded in negotiating £4,670,000 of London exchange in war time.
SENATOR OVERMAN: I think that is competent.
What is really important is not so much that financial assistance was given to Germany, which was only illegal, as that directors of Guaranty Trust were financially assisting the Allies at the same time. In other words, Guaranty Trust was financing both sides of The conflict. This raises the question of morality.
There are many more intricate details of the passing around of huge sums of money in this chapter, but knowing the limit of the average attention span, I'll not paste it all into this post. What I'm trying to accomplish here is point out those persons by name and deed who were leading the way for the socializing of the world. If you read the writings of this crowd, you see that a world socialist government is their end game. Each generation, and I do mean you can see where these people's grand-kids are today, and you  can better believe that they aren't paupers and are continuing a family tradition of maintaining control, no matter how surreptitiously.

Oslo: You have to break a few innocent eggs to make a totalitarian omelet

Like everyone, I cringe at the violence in Norway. The media reports were initially confusing and mostly wrong. I thought it would be constructive to put together a mini-timeline of events to see what really went down.

  • Wed, July 20th, Norwegian a special forces against terrorism run a drill of a terrorist bombing attack without first notifying the public, according to this Norwegian article.
  • Thur, July 21st, Homeland Security puts out this training video featuring traditional-looking Americans and absolutely no Muslims. The video dovetails with the infamous MIAC report that lists returning veterans, Ron Paul supporters, and libertarians as possible domestic terrorists. The overarching message is that anyone could be a terrorist.
  • Fri, July 22, Anders Behrin Breivik dresses as a police officer and goes on his shooting rampage. We later find out that he despises Muslim immigration into Norway and we're not allowed to forget that he is a Christian and the Norwegian equivalent of a conservative Tea Partier. The Norwegian SWAT team that had been training for this very event just two days prior took fifty minutes to get dispatched and it took the police 90 minutes to respond. You would think that they would have quicker reaction time seeing how they had drilled on this very scenario just 48 hours previously.
Can I prove that these events are connected? No, dumbbutt, I've never been to Norway to acquire the take-to-court proof, but I can smell something is wrong in Denmark if you know what I mean. You have this eyewitness and resident of the area describing that he saw suspicious looking men in black uniforms sweeping the area Thursday. You have to wonder that if he was that angry at Muslim immigration, he would have targeted, you know, Muslims? How does shooting up kids at camp solve anything? I know, I know, he's nuts. Question being is this another Ted Kaczynski kind of thing? According to his brother, who was the one who turned him in, Ted was recruited into a series of psychological experiments on highly gifted students while he was at Harvard and was never the same since then.

But this happened in Norway, what connection could that have to the Homeland Security video implying white Christians could be the next terrorists? You might have a problem seeing the connection if you still see the world through a certain paradigm. But I'm here to tell you that the mulitnational corporations that support the World Bank, WTO, UN, etc. aren't even loyal to the bulk of mankind, much less America, the land where their fortunes were made. You see, Norway was going to pull out of Libya by August 1. Norway is militarily connected to the United States through NATO. Here is the map I made of the US Committee on NATO, a group whose mission it is to expand NATO membership, you'll notice that it's the same ol' people in the same ol' clubs:
Can't get the mapper thing to give me a link today, but you can find it by searching through the database.

What I'm saying to you is watch what happens to this Norwegian mad-bomber guy. Could this be another Operation Gladio type of thing? I don't know, but I do know that anyone who takes what the media says at face value about anything is a total and complete idiot. It would really play into the narrative that the powers of be are trying hard to create that now every Christian who likes the Constitution could be some crazed killer. You may have noticed that our government doesn't bother to profile Muslims, in fact they're importing them - that's because this whole control-grid is being set up for the average American. We've been compromised and "they" are going to make damn sure you're not able to do anything about it.

Bailing Yourself Out

Over at Lew Rockwell, I found this wonderful article by the great Fred Reed. It's about disengaging yourself from the "evil system" which we explore together here. If I ever write a book, it will be a how-to on how we can take our money out of New York City and put it back into America (as opposed to the United State Government).
When a country works reasonably well – when the schools teach algebra and not governmentally mandated Appropriate Values, when the police are scarce and courteous, when government is remote and minds its business and works more for the benefit of the country than for looters and special interests, then pledging to it a degree of allegiance isn't foolish. Decades back America was such a country, imperfect as all countries are, but good enough to cherish.
So what to do, Fred highlights homeschooling:
Home schooling is an admirable form of disengagement for those who cannot physically expatriate. The primary schools once taught enough of reading and arithmetic, and little enough of medioccritizing propaganda, as to render them other than pernicious. Today, no. Here it is worth reflecting, contrary to governmental insistence, that schools are needless, at least for bright children. An intelligent child quickly reads several years ahead of his grade level, at which point school becomes only an obstacle. He will be savagely bored, regard his teachers as imbeciles, and learn nothing that justifies his being there but much that justifies being somewhere else. In the deepening twilight, home-schooling becomes almost a responsibility, a parallel to medieval monks copying Greek manuscripts.
I would argue that all children are bright and that school does nothing put crush the spirit of all children. There are many kids out there who are not going to fit the molded ideal of corporate fodder, wherein the school system is crafted around a certain kind of personality. Even if a child is not academically inclined, there natural skill might me manual and there is no outlet for it in the public school system. Fred dittos his sentiment for higher education:
Disengagement from the system of universities, or as I should say, “universities,” is also advisable. This is true, first, because if you seek cultivation, to gain a grasp of such matters as history, literature, the arts and the sciences, you can do it better on your own. Professors serve little purpose other than to ensure that the student does his homework. If the student wants to study, he can do it by himself, and if he doesn't want to study, he has no business in a university.
Second, universities these days, with exceptions I hope, are citadels of intellectual darkness. They teach little, and chiefly serve to force the young to borrow backbreaking sums from colluding banks. The wasted time and phenomenal cost cannot be justified unless they provide some remarkable recompense, and they do not.
Universities largely prepare the student for a life of office work in some dismal institution, trapping him in the retirement system and making him a prisoner of the state. In a nation subsiding into the third world, institutions cannot be counted on.
It's not a big deal I can't afford to send my kids to college, it's just a big scam anyway. Fred goes on to disparage the consumerist mindset and encourages us to minimize and simplify. If you make a game of it, it can be fun. For instance, while I have five kids, I only seek to acquire new clothes for my oldest boy and girl. I do get them new underwear and socks for Christmas, as needed. Finally Fred finishes with this:
Again, circumstances differ and details vary. The principle remains: Disengage, cut your expenses, seek the interstices, and don't believe in anything unless you are sure it was your idea to believe in it. What is coming looks to be ugly. If so, it will be every man for himself, his family, his friends, and what principles he believes. The government doesn’t give a wan, eitolated damn about you.
Good advice for everyone; I know I need to get it together.

Breaking Down Planned - Opolis

Welcome iOwnTheWorld readers - look around 'cause my blog is like a curiosity boutique - lots of info you won't find blogged on anywhere else!

Update/Correction: Should read 3000 gallons of water below - I was going off memory when I was writing this up.

Consider the following three videos: If you don't have the stomach to watch them all, I completely understand. Just watch one and skip down to the analysis, which I'm sure you'll find quite interesting.

You would almost believe that this is some sort of farce, a put-on. So I did some digging on what exactly the Forum for the Future is and who is funding it. If you've been a regular reader, then you know by now that the super-duper rich elites work their wiles on the world through the Foundations as revealed in the Reece Committee of 1953 and written about by Rene Wormser. This Forum for the Future is yet another of the "nonprofits"  that seeks to collectivize society.

According to their latest financial report, this UK based NGO has recently opened a New York office with the financial backing of the Tides Foundation and has raised over 200,000 pounds for the 2010 fiscal year.  They brag of the following accomplishments:

We continued to influence business thinking, contributing to ambitious strategies - such as Unilever’s Sustainable Living Plan and PepsiCo’s sustainable agriculture goals - that set the benchmark for corporations globally.

We ran a number of cutting edge projects, launching the UK’s first eco-rating scheme for mobile phones with O2, helping eBay make its business model even more sustainable, and trialling ‘disruptive innovation’ in the energy sector.
 One thing I noticed on the back of my Unilever corporation Suave shampoo bottle while showering was a little factoid. Did you know that you can save up to $150 a year or 3000 gallons of water by turning the water off while you condition and shampoo? That's right, you turn the water on to get your hair wet, turn it off to later and back on to rinse. They would prefer you not repeat. So who is behind Unilever, one of the biggest corporate sponsors of Forum for the Future? Well here's the map for Unilever that shows their board members and past and present officers along with the other corporations and nonprofits that these Unilever execs are members of. Isn't it interesting to see how they are connected?

link to explorable map

When you look at their financial statement, you find that only 100 pounds was donated by individuals the Lion's share of their money comes from corporate donors. But wouldn't the green agenda be bad for corporations? Not if the corporations giving the money has got it rigged so that the green agenda benefits them.
Forum for the Future sources of income 2010
 Getting backed to the Planned-opolis videos wherein the propoganda is such to get you ready for having your job chosen for you, your travel restricted, your dwelling place restricted, your food restricted, etc. At the end of the videos, you will find that they were produced as a joint project of the Embarq Corporation, the FIA Foundation, and Vodaphone. Let's look at these three entities and see who they're connected to and why they would want to fund such collectivist propoganda.

If you click on over to the end of their 2010 financial statement, you will find a listing of their corporate partners, which is a humongous list of Fortune 500 companies.

First up, the Embarq Corporation is a spinoff of Sprint/Nextell formed in 2006. As you can see from it's map, whose link is not agreeing with me today, the officers of this corporation are also well-connected:
Embarq Corporation
The CEO is Dan Hesse, who also was CEO of Sprint/Nextel and AT&T Wireless. He sits/sat on the Boards of Nokia and Vanify Fair (my source for cheap khakis). Vice Chair of the Joint Chiefs during the Clinton administration, William Owens is currently Chairman of the Board. Ol' Dick Gephardt is on the Board as well as on the board of nine other big corporations, which I didn't expand for some reason? The rest of the gang includes Peter C. Brown, CEO of AMC Entertainment, Steven Davis, CEO of Bob Evans farms, John P. Mullen, CEO of DHL (aka day and a half late!), Dinesh C. Paliwal, CEO of Harman International, Stephanie Shern, a lawyer and board member of three other corporations, and Laurie Siegel, an exec at Tyco.

If you click on, you will be taken to the website of Centurylink internet. They acquired Embarq in 2009 in a tax free transaction. Admiral William Owens, mentioned above became chairman of the board. CenturyLink recently acquired Qwest Communications. What we've got here is a change in names, but the players are still the same. On Centurylink's website, they're all about the phony carbon footprint/offset bullcrap.

Next Up, what in the world is the FIA Foundation? According to their website,

The FIA Foundation is an independent UK registered charity which manages and supports an international programme of activities promoting road safety, environmental protection and sustainable mobility, as well as funding specialist motor sport safety research.

The FIA Foundation was established in 2001 with a donation of $300 million made by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA), the non-profit federation of motoring organisations and the governing body of world motor sport.

The FIA Foundation is an NGO in Roster Consultative Status with the Economic & Social Council of the United Nations and a regular participant in the Working Party on Traffic Safety and the World Forum on Harmonisation of Vehicle Standards at the UN Economic Commission for Europe, and is a leading participant in the UN Global Road Safety Collaboration. The Foundation works with a range of international agencies including the World Health Organization (WHO), the World Bank and the UN Environment Programme on road safety and environmental issues.
 Supporters include Mexican President Calderon, British Prime Minister David Cameron, NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg, UN Secretary General Moon, Nelson Mandela, the whole cast of characters. So repubmom, do you want children to die in the streets? Are you some evil person against road safety? What's your problem anyway? My problem is that they're using something everyone can agree on, like not being run down in the streets, to cloak their real agenda, control of transportation. It's one of the oldest tyrannical tricks in the playbook. The fact that the WHO, World Bank and the UN are the biggest players in this foundation tells you all you need to know.

Lastly, we move on to the Vodaphone corporation, where you will find a sustainability section all about keeping a low carbon footprint, blah blah blah. Vodaphone is a big wireless phone company in Europe and parts of Asia and Africa. In the Egyptian uprising, or whatever you want to call it, Vodaphone cut off a lot of dissenters saying that they had to do what Mubarak told them. I believe that there's a lot of funny business going on with Arabic countries - I sure don't believe what I'm told there. Anyway, the CEO is a Mr. Vittorio Colao who got his MBA at Harvard Business and then went on to work at Morgan Stanley in London. For those of you who've been following my Wall Street & the Bolsheviks series, let me pause a minute and..
Ok, now I can continue. He then went on to McKinsey and Co, a global management bankster firm, after which he got into an Italian wireless company, which became Vodophone Italy and eventually became CEO of the whole Vodaphone corporation in 2008. So what? Well what I'm trying to do here is establish who's doing what behind the scenes. When I get on a names database, I find influential people on corporations I've never heard of funding foundations I've never heard of who are writing policy that none of us are aware of until our esteemed legislators have already passed it. Get me? I'm not saying that all of these people are pure evil, but there is something horribly wicked brewing in the details. You will not find glowing accolades of the power of the individual on the websites of these foundations or corporations,  just how the individual can add to the group.

“No snowflake in an avalanche ever feels responsible.”


Well, I'm off to take a long luxurious shower while I still can!

Update: Just forgot to tie this in a nice neat package for you. Agenda 21 totally ties into all this. Well, I take these people's cute little videos and raise you this informational Agenda 21 featuring Henry Lamb:

Banksters Shootin' Up the Economy

"No bankers were harmed during the making of this fake recovery."

Over at The Burning Platform is a tremendously good series on the financial collapse. If you feel at a loss to explain what is going on to yourself or others, I highly recommend you read these five posts linked here. I've included some of my favorite quotes from this series. What I like is that there is plenty of humorous snark to help you swallow the ugly reality of it all. There's also lots and lots of graphs, statistics, and just plain math to back up what is being asserted. Liberals and Conservatives alike will have their paradigms challenged by these posts, which is why I think that these Clint Eastwood -themed posts reach people of all stripes. That is, if you think you've got the guts to read through them. I suggest you digest and internalize the information presented so that you can intelligently discuss these issues with others.

For a Few Dollars More-Part 1

A Fistful of Dollars - Part 2

It is plain to see by anyone without an ideological agenda that a few thousand corrupt individuals have managed to gain control of the American economic system. 

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly -Part 3

Andrew “Old Hickory” Jackson became President in 1829 and proceeded to declare war on the Second National Bank. He was the first and only President in U.S. history to pay off the National Debt. He worked tirelessly to rescind the charter of the Second Bank of the United States. His reasons for abolishing the bank were:
  • It concentrated the nation’s financial strength in a single institution.
  • It exposed the government to control by foreign interests.
  • It served mainly to make the rich richer.
  • It exercised too much control over members of Congress.
  • It favored northeastern states over southern and western states.
The more things change, the more they stay the same, huh?

The Quigley Formula

The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to the doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can "throw the rascals out" at any election without leading to any profound or extreme shifts in policy.
- Carrol Quigley, Tragedy and Hope
Carrol Quigley was a professor of history at Georgetown University, but more importantly, was the official historian of the elite Insiders. He is the only person allowed to examine the early minutes of the Council on Foreign Relations. His book, Tragedy and Hope linked above, is a boil-down of what he discovered from those minutes and his experience from hanging around these Elites. There's nothing mystical or mysterious about it: over time, some families and interests have been able to accumulate enough wealth and influence in order to remake our constitutional republic into a system that is predictable and controllable. Remember what Fred Howe said in his famous book, Confessions of a Monopolist:

These are the symbols, more magic than those of some prince of the Arabian Nights, by which to rule the game. First, let Society work for you; and, second, make a business of politics. Upon an understanding of these rules the great fortunes of America have almost all been reared, from those of the early Argonauts who built the Pacific railways from the sale of government bonds and generous land grants, to the modern princes of finance who have capitalized iron ore underlying the barren lumber lands of Minnesota at thousands of millions; the franchises of New York at hundreds of millions, and the sugar, tobacco and many other trusts at many times their value. These are the rules of big business. They have superseded the teachings of our parents and are reducible to a simple maxim: Get a monopoly; let Society work for you; and remember that the best of all business is politics, for a legislative grant, franchise, subsidy or tax exemption is worth more than a Kimberly or Comstock lode, since it does not require any labor, either mental or physical, for its exploitation.
--Frederick C. Howe, Confessions of a Monopolist, page 157, published 1906
 Upon further investigation, I have come to the conclusion that these rules of business have long since gone beyond our borders and have been practiced all over the world by the monopoly men. As we have been learning ins exploring the interlock between Wall Street and Marxists, we are finding that this formula soon took a deadly turn when deadly force of government was used to assert the monopolists will on an unwilling and largely unwitting public. Most people are unaware that we have a Federal Reserve, much less that it is a private banking cartel front. But listen to Carrol describe how the Communists fit into the whole mix:
There does exist and has existed for a generation an international Anglophile network which operates, to some extent, in the way the radical Right believes the Communists act. In fact, this network, which we may identify as the Round Table Groups, has no aversion to cooperating with the Communists, or any other groups, and frequently does so. I know of the operations of this network because I have studied it for twenty years and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960's, to examine its papers and secret records. I have no aversion to it or to most of its aims and have, for much of my life, been close to it and to many of its instruments. I have objected, both in the past and recently, to a few of its policies (notably to its belief that England was an Atlantic rather than a European Power and must be allied, or even federated, with the United States and must remain isolated from Europe), but in general my chief difference of opinion is that it wishes to remain unknown, and I believe its role in history is significant enough to be known. 
-- Carrol Quigley, Tragedy and Hope
So for those audio/visual learners, I'll present the G. Edward Griffin lecture, The Quigley Formula.
If you don't have time for the whole thing, I strongly urge you to check out the last 20 minutes on the futility of voting for Kang or Chang and expecting different results.

Just Some Good Ol' Boys Havin' Some Fun - Worshiping Owl Idols!

So while I'm playing with my favorite toy, the National Names Database Mapper, I come across this little logo:

I notice that a lot of famous and powerful people are all connected to this thing called the Bohemian Grove. As far I knew, it was another good 'ol boy club or maybe a business and professional group. As a I read up on it, well, the back of my head got blown off and now that I've super-glued it back on, I can only now get around to writing about this.

In short, it is summer camp for the rich and powerful of the world that began as a smaller group in 1878. They have the barrack assignments based on what industry/field you are in:
  • Hill Billies (Big Business/Banking/Politics/Universities/Media/Texas Business);
  • Mandalay (Big Business/Defense Contractors/Politics/U.S. Presidents);
  • Cave Man (Think Tanks/Oil Companies/Banking/Defense Contractors/Universities/Media);
  • Stowaway (Rockefeller Family Members/Oil Companies/Banking/Think Tanks);
  • Uplifters (Corporate Executives/Big Business);
  • Owls Nest (U.S. Presidents/Military/Defense Contractors);
  • Hideaway (Foundations/Military/Defense Contractors);
  • Isle of Aves (Military/Defense Contractors);
  • Lost Angels (Banking/Defense Contractors/Media);
  • Silverado squatters (Big Business/Defense Contractors);
  • Sempervirens (California-based Corporations);
  • Hillside (Military—Joint Chiefs of Staff);
  • Idlewild (California-based Corporations)
Cute huh? It was at Bohemian Grove that the Manhattan Project was discussed. Of course it shouldn't bother us that officials from other nations are talking shop with our "elected" leaders in violation of the Logan Act. If that wasn't troubling enough, take a look at their hallmark ceremony, The Cremation of Care:

Is this just some good 'ol boys having some fun? Who am I to say that dressing up like druids and burning an effigy in front of a forty foot owl idol/statue thing is wrong? Isn't that how most of us like to unwind?

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
--Ephesians 6:12

If I recall my old testament, God really wanted "groves" to be torn down because you can't honor God in a grove, a place where idols were worshiped.

At least they don't use real kids anymore! circa 1909
The mainstream media totally ignores this rich and famous summer camp, probably because the rich own the media, don't you reckon? Check out this video of Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh being asked about the Grove and see the arrogant disdain they have for anyone who asks the sane question, What about the political and industrial leaders of the world hanging out in private every year and planning our lives? They have the money, they have the power - our elections are not giving us democratic results anymore, could this kind of thing be why? Here is David Gergen being confronted about his participation in the Bohemian Grove and doesn't act like it's just good ol' boys having fun.

This year, the group Anonymous is going to protest the Bohemian Grove, their spiffy little video gives you the run-down on what it's all about. 

Does this look like something that Jesus would approve of? As someone who grew up with occult influences, I can tell you that the Devil is the camp director of Bohemian Grove. I'll not get into the debate on whether this is Moloch worship and the like, but I will say that anyone who willingly goes there year after year is opening themselves up to dark forces. Our nation and world is in a state because we have ungodly men in high places and have had that situation for several decades now. The world is racing towards judgment and creation itself is groaning under all of mankind's sin pollution.

1973 Prophecy Coming True?

Saw this great sermon over at the Gerald Celente Fan Blog. It was taped in 1973 by Rev. David Wilkerson who died in a car crash just this past spring. Pastor Wilkerson was the founder of Times Square Church in NYC, whose sermons by Pastor Conlon I have really enjoyed. I'm always suspicious of those who say they got a word from God, but the Bible does say :

“‘In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. --Acts 2:17

Remember this preached in 1973 and written down in his book, The Vision

Of course, God's prophet is always 100% accurate, so always keep that in mind. The key punchline from this sermon is God has Everything under Control.

Joint Chiefs of Staff

Curious to see the connections between our armament industry and our top military brass, I made a map entitled Joint Chiefs of Staff. You will have to probably click on the link and explore the map further. I have little snarky comments and quotes on there to further flesh out these connections. If you haven't read General Butler's War is a Racket, I strongly urge you to do so if you wish to understand why the defense budget accounts for such a huge of the US government's debt burden. Doesn't it seem like a huge conflict of interest when those advising on war declarations (as if we have those antiquated things anymore) stand to profit enormously from war? Just sayin'

And You Thought Your Small-Town Was Crooked..

This town of Quarzsite, Arizona takes the cake in the most crooked small town in America. During the open-mike portion of the city council meeting, a citizen makes some comments on upcoming tax matters and I believe makes a mention of the corruption. She is shouted down by the council members and man-handled by the local goon police force. It's really unbelievable, like something you'd see in one of those futuristic movies where the Bill of Rights has been made obsolete.

See the violence inherent in the system! Remind me not to speed through that town! The Mayor says he will not rest until these council members go to jail. He refers to the police chief as an insane Nazi. That's special. Over at Adrienne's, there are some email addresses, in case you want to drop these lunatics a line.

Chairman of SEC buys Mansion - Nice Work if You Can Get It

And no, you mundanes can't get this kind of work, they pay big money to make sure you don't make it into their little club. Saw this via The Classic Liberal, an article on Economic Policy Journal feature former SEC Chair Chris Cox's recent CASH purchase of a $5.4 million dollar mansion in Laguna Niguel , CA.

As a fellow house-hunter, it's hard not to blame him from the description,

The 11,000-square foot house sits on nearly an acre atop a hill. The home has 7 bedrooms, 8.5 baths, a “huge” lawn, swimming pool, spa and an outdoor kitchen, with panoramic views of the coastline and valley. There also are guest/maid quarters, a wine cellar, and a master bedroom retreat with a fireplace.

According to the listing, "the house is hidden from prying eyes by a gate and beautiful mature hardwoods, this estate is accessed by a long private driveway that is lined with roses and surrounded by an immaculately manicured landscape."

Now I'm not saying that it's wrong to have a nice house, but since this world is not my permanent home, I wouldn't invest in something so extravagant. It is spiritually safer to buy Bibles for China IMO. But anyway, my mind got to wondering who is the Chris Cox fellow and where did he obtain over five million dollars in Cash? According to the article:
Many held the view that Chris Cox was ineffective during the period he served as chairman of the Securities and Exchange Position (which was fine with me), but he sure has played an A game in using the government to private sector revolving door.

Cox is now a partner at the law firm Bingham McCutchen LLP and a member of its corporate, mergers & acquisitions and securities group, advising global companies on strategic issues, corporate governance, securities regulation and other matters, according to the law firm’s website. He is also a principal of Bingham Consulting Group, which focuses on strategic issues involving federal and state governments, homeland security, and multistate litigation.
 I, of course, have made up the Chris Cox map, which isn't cooperating today, so I'll just leave you with his resume:

You may note that Mr. Cox was SEC Chairman during the whole collapse of 2008. Apparently, failure really pays off. Not that I'm saying he's wholly to blame, but something sure stinks here, doesn't it? Don't know enough to really comment here, unlike some other people, if I don't know what I'm talking about I'll shut up instead of prattling on. I do know that the Security and Exchange Commission is supposed to regulate the securities industry:

What Does Securities And Exchange Commission - SEC Mean?
A government commission created by Congress to regulate the securities markets and protect investors. In addition to regulation and protection, it also monitors the corporate takeovers in the U.S. The SEC is composed of five commissioners appointed by the U.S. President and approved by the Senate. The statutes administered by the SEC are designed to promote full public disclosure and to protect the investing public against fraudulent and manipulative practices in the securities markets. Generally, most issues of securities offered in interstate commerce, through the mail or on the internet must be registered with the SEC.
Um, EPIC FAIL, Mr. Cox, EPIC FAIL, unless of course, you planned for our economy to be hit and were paid for your silence. Many speculate that this indeed is what happened and that Bear Stearns and Lehman were deliberately, "taken out".
