Have you been following the spread of the Occupy Wall Street protests? Have you noticed the media, unions, politicians and countless other special interest groups trying to put a label on who the protesters really are? Most of these groups are simply political opportunists who are trying to spin and use the media’s focus on the protesters to co-opt the narrative and message of the protesters for their own selfish self interests and motives. By the time you finish reading this article, you will realize that everything you thought about the Occupy Wall Street Protesters and the Tea Party is wrong!
On April 15, 2009 I was at the Lake Eola amphitheater in downtown Orlando, Florida USA tea party rally. I stood with 5,000 other fed up Democrat, Republican and Independent Patriots who were tired of electing politicians who promise the world while running for election, and then upon taking office they promptly start breaking all of their campaign promises and bending over for their favorite special interests which consist of the Wall Street big banks like J.P. Morgan, Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, corporate special interests like GE, defense contractors, pharmaceutical companies, unions, etc. Our beloved Republic and government of the people, by the people and for the people has been corrupted into and become a fascist state government… of the powerful and well-connected, for the powerful and well-connected and by the powerful and well-connected. Mussolini, who was the dictator of fascist Italy and Adolph Hitler’s closest ally during World War II, described fascism as “the perfect merger of state and corporate interests”.
There is nothing wrong with free market capitalism. Our free markets have been corrupted into rigged market capitalism, where all of the laws and regulatory agencies have been legislated into existence by corrupt politicians over many decades who never bothered to read the legislation they were signing into law. This legislation was written by the lawyers and lobbyists of the special interests who had the economic power to influence large enough groups of voters that shallow and self-serving politicians pandered to in order to get large campaign contributions and the votes that kept them in power. Hey, it’s nothing personal. It’s just business. Corporate, enlightened self-interest. If you’re too stupid to know what the politicians and wealthy economic and financial elites are doing, then you deserve what you get. Survival of the fittest is the rule these lost and morally bankrupt souls live by.
“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred. You cannot build character and courage by taking away men’s initiative and independence. You cannot help men permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.”-Abraham Lincoln
I remember that bright sunny day in Orlando during the Tea Party rally. There were lots of vets there who were proud of their service and their country. The anger and frustration of my fellow patriots was so thick that you could cut it with a knife. Americans of all ages, political affiliations, gender, race, backgrounds and beliefs have long since tired of politicians who talk out of both sides of their mouth and only seem to make economic conditions worse.
This political class of ours has used our money, our nations military might and our economic power for their own selfish and self-serving motives. In my article “What Is Money Really?“, I talk about how the Rockefellers, the Warbergs, J.P. Morgan and several other European banking elite, circumvented, and therefore stole the sovereignty of the United States of America when they got control of the printing of our nation’s money supply via the private Federal Reserve banking system that was instituted in 1913 along with the IRS.
When the Federal Reserve act was signed into law, the government of the United States of America was no longer in control of the printing of the nation’s money supply and therefore, was no longer a sovereign free republic. Instead of our government printing its currency, it must now borrow money from the private Federal Reserve bank which is run by a board of governors consisting of the world’s largest banks and international financiers, at interest. Money is no longer money. Money only comes into existence through debt. The only way the nation’s money supply can expand is through debt. Either the government borrows it into existence from the private Federal Reserve Bank, or you and I borrow it into existence through our credit cards, car loans, home loans, student loans, commercial loans, boat loans, jet ski loans, business lines of credit, etc.
“Give me control of a nations money supply, and I care not who makes it’s laws.”- Mayer Amschel Rothschild, founder of the Rothschild banking dynasty.
The problem with a debt-based monetary system is that more money is always owed back to the bank than was originally borrowed. You must pay the original principal amount you borrow plus interest. This interest must come from somewhere. If the government reduces spending, and banks are not lending, the money supply contracts. As there is less money which consists of paper and digital dollars, the economy contracts because there are simply fewer dollars in circulation. People with a lot of money in savings can weather the poor economic environment. People who live paycheck to paycheck are unable to find jobs. I am sure you have lots of friends and family who have been severely financially, emotionally and physically impacted by this global recession we are in as I do. The only way to keep the economy growing and expanding in a debt-based monetary system, is that debt must always be expanding. You also get bubbles that pop and cause economic collapses. Remember the .com bust? Remember the real estate crash from a few years ago? Have you seen the size of the student debt bubble? Debt-based monetary systems are prone to booms and busts. The boom happens as the money supply and debt expands. The bust happens when the money supply is contracted through taxes, rising interest rates, banks not lending, austerity measures, etc. People go into debt when things are good, and they lose all of their assets and equity to the banks during the busts when they can no longer afford their payments. Thomas Jefferson warned us. Did we listen?
“I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.” – Thomas Jefferson
“We must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our selection between economy and liberty or profusion and servitude. If we run into such debts as that we must be taxed in our meat, in our drink, in our necessities and comforts, in our labors and in our amusements, for our callings and our creeds… our people… must come to labor sixteen hours in the twenty-four, give earnings of fifteen of these to the government for their debts and daily expenses; and the sixteenth being insufficient to afford us bread, we must live… We have not time to think, no means of calling the mis-managers to account, but be glad to obtain subsistence by hiring ourselves to rivet their chains on the necks of our fellow suffers. Our landholders, too… retaining indeed the title and stewardship of estates called theirs, but held really in trust for the treasury, must… be contented with penury, obscurity and exile… private fortunes are destroyed by public as well as by private extravagance.
This is the tendency of all human governments. A departure from principle becomes a precedent for a second; that second for a third; and so on, till the bulk of society is reduced to mere automatons of misery, to have no sensibilities left but for sinning and suffering… And the fore horse of this frightful team is public debt. Taxation follows that, and in its train wretchedness and oppression.”-Thomas Jefferson
You hear about quantitative easing and printing money in the media all the time. The only problem is that the money that is being printed is being given to the big banks to either bail them out, or they are taking this money and speculating with it in the commodities markets and other investments overseas. This money that gets created benefits only the banking and financial class. Since the physical and digital dollars that are being printed into existence are not being spent in America, or in the local economies of American cities, the economic environment continues to worsen all around us. But strangely, the bankers and Wall Street financiers are once again paying themselves record bonuses because they hold all the cards, they are the gatekeepers and hold all of the keys to the world’s financial system. If you are well-connected or went to Harvard, Princeton, Yale, Oxford or other Ivy league school, then you can probably get yourself a high-paying job in the financial sector, hobnob with the rich and famous or have dinner with your favorite Senator or Congressman. But if you’re not part of the club or don’t have enough economic influence or money, then you are shit out of luck.
This will get your blood to boil. Did you know that if you and your neighbors collectively get together and moved your checking and savings accounts to a bank such as Bank of America, and the total of all of your bank accounts when added together was to equal say $1 million, that Bank of America through the magic of fractional reserve banking can create out of thin air up to 10 times the amount their customers have in their checking and savings accounts? That means that Bank of America, thanks to the fact that you and your neighbors have collectively placed $1 million in their bank, is allowed to create up to $10 million out of thin air and lend it to you or anyone else they deem a worthy credit risk in the form of credit cards, car loans, home loans, lines of credit, student loans, etc. Now if a borrower stiffs the bank and defaults on his $5000 credit card, bank of America has to take a loss of $5000 against their gross revenue. However, once that borrower pays that $5000 back, he will have paid Bank of America $5000 that Bank of America did not even have to begin with. On top of that, he must pay Bank of America interest on the loan.
Another travesty of injustice and oppression is the IMF, World Bank and Euro project. Corrupt financial oligarchs from every country who are part of “the good ol’ boys network” act like a bunch of Financial Mafia and Pirates as they pillage and plunder the assets of Europe. These international bankers have in essence conquered the world through the Federal Reserve system, IMF, World Bank and the European Union.
So what do we have here? We have a worldwide financial Ponzi scheme going on that is run by the world’s big banks, Wall Street, the city of London, corrupt politicians, corporate oligarchs, etc. Did you know that J.P. Morgan has almost $80 trillion in derivatives exposure? Did you know that the GDP for the entire world on an annual basis is only about 50 trillion? There are over $600 trillion in worldwide derivatives outstanding. What business does anyone have creating financial products with that kind of leverage that can never be paid back when it blows up? That is a bunch of horseshit! There is a reason why the money changers are referred to as the lowest form of life in the Bible. Give these money junkies an inch and they will take a mile. Thankfully, their Ponzi scheme is finally collapsing. The world is up to their eyeballs in debt. Trillions of dollars of debt that can never be repaid. Politicians and international bankers who keep bailing out the banks because they do not want to deal with the political fallout of the inevitable collapse, are simply making the inevitable collapse even more financially devastating than it would have been had the system been allowed to collapse in 2008. The world debt-based monetary system finally reached its debt saturation point. There were simply no more bubbles that could be inflated in real estate, credit cards, home-equity lines, car loans, etc. The debt pyramid finally reached the maximum point of expansion.
So what is the solution? Worldwide debt forgiveness. It was called a “debt jubilee” in ancient times. A return to debt-free sovereign fiat money printed by the individual governments of the world in their own currency’s. Make it illegal for governments to go into debt. Why? Because governments have the right to print money. Elimination of fractional reserve banking which will prevent booms, busts and bubbles as banks will no longer have the sole power to expand and contract the nations money supply at will. Elimination of derivative and highly leveraged financial products that no one can explain or understand, including those who buy and sell them. Using gold and silver coin, and gold and silver certificates for wealth preservation and a reserve currency when the politicians print to much fiat money (money not backed by precious metals) causing the value of the fiat currency to be inflated away.
All laws shall be written at a 6th grade level so everyone can understand what they say. As it is now, politicians don’t read the legislation they sign. Obamacare? 10,000 pages written by corporate special interests, lobbyists and lawyers. Obama and the rest of Congress never read this legislation, nor could they understand it if they had. Any CEO of any major corporation anywhere in the world who would sign a legally binding 10,000 page document without reading it would be immediately fired and probably sued for gross negligence. Obama is every bit as corrupt, bought and paid for as Bush, Clinton and countless other presidents and politicians before him. By their deeds shall you know them.
“Government is not reason, it is not eloquence, it is force; like fire, a troublesome servant & a fearful master. Never for a moment should it be left to irresponsible action.”-George Washington
US Senators should return to being picked by the individual legislatures of every State in the Union as per the Constitution. Senators are supposed to be the representatives of the individual and sovereign states interests. This was changed over 100 years ago and the excuse used was because two or three states had gone several years without electing new senators when the previous senators term had expired because of political gridlock in those state legislatures. The real reason the special interests got this changed was because they wanted politicians elected through their corrupt two-party system that enabled them to control and buy off politicians through political donations. Simple divide and conquer. One of the world’s oldest fighting strategies. If you can keep Democrats and Republicans arguing with one another, then the banking and corporate oligarchs can focus on their selfish agenda while everyone else argues over nonsense.
The IRS should be abolished! The IRS was only brought into existence to provide a mechanism through which the government could raise enough money to pay the interest on the national debt to the Federal Reserve Bank. The IRS was originally sold to the people that it was only going to tax 2 to 3% of the wealthiest US citizens. Inept and corrupt politicians have bastardized and expanded through class warfare rhetoric the original 2 to 3% to include approximately 50% of all Americans having their labors taxed. Our founding fathers were very clear in their intent that the labors of the people could not be taxed, only the profits of corporations that would benefit from our free market capitalist system.
So back to the occupy wall street protests and the fact that peaceful revolution has finally come to America. On day 10 of the wall street protests I was watching a live video feed of the protesters in New York City. Two college students were answering questions from people on the Internet who were trying to find out what the wall street protests were really all about. I believe their names were Matt and Kira. They were both adamant that they were patriots. The two of them became inspired. She quit her job, and they hitchhiked their way to New York City all the way from Oregon! There were people there who had dropped out of school and traveled across the country to be a part of the protests. Over the past few weeks I have watched and listened to socialists, communists, Tea Partiers, Libertarians, Democrats, Republicans, Independents, veterans, anarchists, constitutionalists, old people, business professionals, entrepreneurs, union people, far left and far right loons, hippies, etc. express their views on camera, in their tweets, etc. What do they all say and have in common? “We are not leaving!”Don’t listen to the media idiots in their air-conditioned studios as they try to discredit, take credit or label any aspect of this movement. I believe because of what I have seen around the world this past year, that this movement is a true movement of the people. There are and will continue to be opportunists who will try to mold and shape the narrative to their benefit. However, enough Patriotic Americans know enough about what is going on and what the true cause of the world’s problems is. These protesters are spawning other groups all over the country. From San Francisco to the Federal Reserve itself. Every day they grow a little bigger. Every day we get closer and closer to the point at which the media, the politicians and the banking and financial elite can no longer ignore this tidal wave of change, freedom and patriotism.
As a life coach who is helping to personally change the lives of people all over the world for the better, people are people no matter where they are. They generally want the same things. They want to be left alone to live out their lives in peace without some jerk off bureaucrat trying to micromanage their finances, their careers, their businesses, their health, what they put in their bodies, their freedom and their lives.
There is no such thing as a bad idea, only bad plans. I am a constitutionalist. I believe in the free market. I believe in our right to own property, to bear arms and to do whatever the hell I want as long as it does not impact or impinge upon the free will of another human being. I don’t have anything against communists or socialists, but I can study history and see with my own eyes that their systems do not work. The bigger the government, the easier it is to corrupt it and to hide the corruption. True freedom of the individual comes from the Lord; not man, not government. Nothing in the history of humanity, at least the history that we know of, has ever been able to produce the prosperity, wealth, security and abundance in new technology and innovation as the free market capitalistic system has. Facts are facts. Community property is a nice idea for people who want to live that way. However, since I live in a free republic, I get to choose to keep my property and not lose it to others by force of law. My freedom is not for sale or up for debate, and I reserve my right to defend it from theft!
I do not believe in the corruption that has perverted our free market capitalistic system into a rigged market capitalistic system. Once the problems are fixed and the unfair laws repealed, this system will function with freedom and prosperity for all who participate like it did for many decades before it was corrupted to mainly serve a few large special corporate, political and financial interests.
“If ever a time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.” Samuel Adams, 1776

Just listen to the protesters demands, I guarantee you will resonate with most of them. If you are a conservative, relax. Forget it is Keith, and just listen to the message…

“In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man—brave, hated, and scorned. When his cause succeeds, however, the timid join him; for then, it costs nothing to be a patriot.” — Mark Twain
