The New World Order's ObamaNation

Matt Taibbi has written an important article in this month's Rolling Stone magazine. In it he explains to the reader, in laymen's terms, just what happened, how it happened, and who benefited from the massive taxpayer bailouts of Wall Street's biggest firms. But, most importantly, he hits the nail on the head by saying that the Republic is officially dead (and we do hear the dirge) -- there is no more pretense that we live in a democracy under the rule of law, because now the lawless ones have "officially" taken over the apparatus of the state and given us the finger in the process. Yes, as Taibbi says: "We are royally fucked." Congress is now a collection of rubber stampers, and the people -- Wall Street slaves.

Taibbi writes in the "The Big Takeover":

"The crisis was the coup de grâce: Given virtually free rein over the economy, these same insiders first wrecked the financial world, then cunningly granted themselves nearly unlimited emergency powers to clean up their own mess. And so the gambling-addict leaders of companies like AIG end up not penniless and in jail, but with an Alien-style death grip on the Treasury and the Federal Reserve — "our partners in the government," as Liddy put it with a shockingly casual matter-of-factness after the most recent bailout."

The gambler-addicts have taken over and are running (and ruining) the country, and, we can bet that they will be jonesing for their next fix soon. Just the other day, in an effort to stave off Wall Street's DDTs, Geithner injected these vampires with liquidity by promising to take their toxic assets off the balance sheet with taxpayer's blood. But, as anyone who has ever known an addict will tell you, it will get worse, much worse as addicts are expert liars and manipulators. They will say, and do, anything to get their next fix. Lock your doors and hide what little, and, hopefully, what 'real' money you have left.

Although I commend Matt for putting many of the festering pieces together to help us understand the legalized, mafioso-world of high finance and their partners in crime in congress, there are a few notable dots in this exposé that he forgot to connect -- namely, the relationships that certain Obama cabinet members have to those benefitting most from the bailout (though Taibbi does mention some of these cancerous moles in his article).

For instance, one of the key benefactors of the bailout-"stimulus" bills not mentioned in the article is that perennial fixer/war criminal Henry Kissinger -- and, as a corollary, his corporate clients (but you intuitively already knew that, didn't you?). Yes, Obama's trusted servant, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, worked for three years with Kissinger Associates, supposedly helping Henry research a book. And, after this literary stint with Kissinger, the ambitious Geithner went to work at the U.S. Treasury as Under Secretary for International Affairs under Robert Rubin (a Goldman Sachs man) and Lawrence Summers -- two key players who help usher in the deregulation of the financial industry by lobbying for the ruination of the Glass-Steagall Act.

Why is this important? Well, it may have to do with the fact the A.I.G. -- the company being publicly pilloried today for dolling out millions of dollars in executive bonuses -- is a strategic partner with Kissinger Associates, Inc.

In an article written by John Horne for 9/11review.org we read:

American International Group, Inc. (AIG), The Blackstone Group L. P. and Kissinger Associates Inc. announced the establishment of a new venture to provide financial advisory services to corporations seeking high-level independent strategic advice. […] The venture will operate globally and will take advantage of the existing relationships between the partners:

- AIG has an ownership interest in Blackstone and is an investor in several of Blackstone's private equity funds;

- AIG and Blackstone have a joint venture, specializing in restructuring and M&A (mergers and acquisitions) advisory services in selected Asian countries;

- Henry Kissinger chairs both AIG's International Advisory Board and the advisory boards of several AIG-sponsored Infrastructure Funds.

Kissinger Associates, by John Horne

Is our New World Order jigsaw puzzle beginning to take shape now? Oh, but it gets better...

Timmy's father, Peter Geithner, fits in miraculously to the mix as he was is a former top official of the Ford Foundation (a NWO front group) who knew Obama’s mother, Ann Dunham-Soetoro, when she was working on “microfinance” programs in Indonesia. Indeed, the elite travel in a very small circles.

The puzzle begins to take shape further when we see how our Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, and her hubby, Bill, are "life-long friends" with Thomas F. (Mack) McLarty, III, who joined Kissinger Associates, Inc. to form Kissinger McLarty Associates in 1992.

According to Wikipedia: Kissinger Associates (McLarty left the firm in January 2008 to start his own company) specialty is in "assisting its clientele in identifying strategic partners and investment opportunities, and advises clients on government relations throughout the world. It was established in July, 1982 after loans had been secured from Goldman Sachs and a consortium of three other banks."

So, the puzzle is becoming clear with anyone with eyes to see. With a good chunk of the bailout money going to Kissinger-affiliated firms like A.I.G., JPMorgan Chase, and Goldman Sachs; and with the recent reshuffling of strategic partners (bye-bye Bear Stearns and Lehman Bros, plus the many community banks that have been taken over or shut down because they bought into the toxic mortgage schemes); and with the new investment opportunities that Geithner is now promising Wall Street firms, we see what the financial crisis really is -- a well-structure M&A (merging and acquisition) project of the United States of America, which follows perfectly Kissinger Associates, Inc. strategic goals.

The government will now be taking all its marching orders straight from the central banking- NWO elite as declared by Obama's new National Security Adviser, Jim Jones, speaking at CFR function:

"Thank you for that wonderful tribute to Henry Kissinger yesterday. Congratulations. As the most recent National Security Advisor of the United States, I take my daily orders from Dr. Kissinger, filtered down through General Brent Scowcroft and Sandy Berger, who is also here. We have a chain of command in the National Security Council that exists today." -- "NSC advisor Jones: “I take my daily orders from Dr. Kissinger", Infowars.com

Of course these relationships between individuals who are in key positions in the Obama administration and shady consulting firms like Kissinger Associates would have no baring on Obama's agenda? Of course not. He's his own man, they keep telling us. And, if you believe that, there is some Kool-Aid they would like you to drink. Maybe today's new Jim Jones will administer it.

The Bankruptcy of The United States

The Bankruptcy of The United States United States Congressional Record, March 17, 1993 Vol. 33, page H-1303 Representative James Traficant, Jr. (Ohio) addressing the House:

Mr. Speaker, we are here now in Chapter 11. Members of Congress are official trustees presiding over the greatest reorganization of any bankrupt entity in world history, the U.S. Government. We are setting forth hopefully, a blueprint for our future. There are some who say it is a coroner’s report that will lead to our demise.

It is an established fact that the United States federal government has been dissolved by the Emergency Banking Act, March 9, 1933, 48 Stat. 1, Public Law 89-719; declared by President Roosevelt, being bankrupt and insolvent. H.J.R. 192, 73rd Congress m session June 5, 1933 - Joint Resolution To Suspend The Gold Standard and Abrogate The Gold Clause dissolved the sovereign authority of the United States and the official capacities of all United States governmental offices, officers, and departments and is further evidence that the United States federal government exists today in name only.

The receivers of the United States bankruptcy are the international bankers, via the United Nations, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. All United States offices, officials, and departments are now operating within a de facto status in name only under Emergency War Powers. With the constitutional republic form of government now dissolved, the receivers of the bankruptcy have adopted a new form of government for the United States. This new form of government is known as a democracy, being an established socialist/communist order under a new governor for America.

Gold and silver were such a powerful money during the founding of the United States of America, that the founding fathers declared that only gold or silver coins can be “money” in America. Since gold and silver coinage were heavy and inconvenient for a lot of transactions, they were stored in banks and a claim check was issued as a money substitute. People traded their coupons as money, or “currency.” Currency is not money, but a money substitute. Redeemable currency must promise to pay a dollar equivalent in gold or silver money. Federal Reserve Notes (FRNs) make no such promises, and are not “money.” A Federal Reserve Note is a debt obligation of the federal United States government, not “money.” The federal United States government and the U.S. Congress were not and have never been authorized by the Constitution for the United States of America to issue currency of any kind, but only lawful money, gold and silver coin.

It is essential that we comprehend the distinction between real money and paper money substitute. One cannot get rich by accumulating money substitutes, one can only get deeper into debt. We the people no longer have any “money.” Most Americans have not been paid any “money” for a very long time, perhaps not in their entire life. Now do you comprehend why you feel broke? Now, do you understand why you are “bankrupt,” along with the rest of the country?
Federal Reserve Notes (FRNs) are unsigned checks written on a closed account. FRNs are an inflatable paper system designed to create debt through inflation (devaluation of currency). Whenever there is an increase of the supply of a money substitute in the economy without a corresponding increase in the gold and silver backing, inflation occurs.

Inflation is an invisible form of taxation that irresponsible governments inflict on their citizens. The Federal Reserve Bank who controls the supply and movement of FRNs has everybody fooled. They have access to an unlimited supply of FRNs, paying only for the printing costs of what they need. FRNs are nothing more than promissory notes for U.S. Treasury securities (T-Bills) — a promise to pay the debt to the Federal Reserve Bank.

There is a fundamental difference between “paying” and “discharging” a debt. To pay a debt, you must pay with value (i.e. gold, silver, barter or a commodity). With FRNs, you can only discharge a debt. You cannot pay a debt with a debt currency system. You cannot service a debt with a currency that has no backing in value or sub-stance. No contract in Common law is valid unless it involves an exchange of “good & valuable consideration.” Unpayable debt transfers power and control to the sovereign power structure that has no interest in money, law, equity or justice because they have so much wealth already.

Their lust is for power and control. Since the inception of central banking, they have controlled the fates of nations.
The Federal Reserve Act was legislated ex post-facto (to 1870), although ex post-facto laws are strictly forbidden by the Constitution. [1:9:3]

The Federal Reserve System is a sovereign power structure separate and distinct from the federal United States government.

Assets of the debtor can be hypothecated (to pledge something as a security without taking possession of it) as security by the lender or underwriter. The Federal Reserve Act stipulated that the interest on the debt was to be paid in gold. There was no stipulation in the Federal Reserve Act for ever paying the principal.

Prior to 1913, most Americans owned clear, allodial title to property, free and clear of any liens or mortgages until the Federal Reserve Act (1913) “Hypothecated” all property within the federal United States to the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve, in which the Trustees (stockholders) held legal title. The U.S. citizen (tenant, franchisee) was registered as a “beneficiary” of the trust via his/her birth certificate.

In 1933, the federal United States hypothecated all of the present and future properties, assets and labor of their “subjects,” the 14th Amendment U.S. citizen, to the Federal Reserve. In return, the Federal Reserve System agreed to extend the federal United States corporation all the credit “money substitute” it needed. Like any other debtor, the federal United States government had to assign collateral and security to their creditors as a condition of the loan. Since the federal United States didn’t have any assets, they assigned the private property of their “economic slaves,” the U.S. citizens as collateral against the unpayable federal debt. They also pledged the unincorporated federal territories, national parks’ forests, birth certificates, and nonprofit organizations, as collateral against the federal debt. All has already been transferred as payment to the international bankers.

America has returned to its pre-American Revolution, feudal roots whereby all land is held by a sovereign and the common people had no rights to hold allodial title to property.

Once again, ‘We the People’ are the tenants and sharecroppers renting our own property from a Sovereign in the guise of the Federal Reserve Bank. ‘We the People’ have exchanged one master for another.
This has been going on for over eighty years without the “informed knowledge” of the American people, without a voice protesting loud enough. Now it’s easy to grasp why America is fundamentally bankrupt. Why don’t more people own their properties outright? Why are 90% of Americans mortgaged to the hilt and have little or no assets after all debts and liabilities have been paid? Why does it feel like you are working harder and harder and getting less and less?

We are reaping what has been sown, and the results of our harvest is a painful bankruptcy, and a foreclosure on American property, precious liberties, and a way of life. Few of our elected representatives in Washington, D.C. have dared to tell the truth. The federal United States is bankrupt. Our children will inherit this unpayable debt, and the tyranny to enforce paying it.

America has become completely bankrupt in world leadership, financial credit and its reputation for courage, vision and human rights. This is an undeclared economic war, bankruptcy, and economic slavery of the most corrupt order! Wake up America! Take back your country!

Traficant stood out for his blunt outspokenness and refusal to bow to political pressures. He has been serving an 8-year sentence in federal prison since July 30, 2002, and will be transfering to a halfway house on March 9, 2009. In “Target: Traficant — The Untold Story” Michael Collins Piper gives a detailed account of how Traficant was framed. Traficant refused to plead guilty to charges of improper financial dealings, claiming that the court had improperly not allowed him to call defense witnesses, nor present evidence that prosecution witnesses had been forced to lie. Remarkably, the prosecution (led by Michael Chertoff) offered no recordings of the alleged crimes despite an unusually large wiretapping effort.

Before 9/11, Traficant demanded that US troops prevent illegal aliens — and potential terrorists — from crossing the Mexican border. He attacked the corruption of Wall Street, high-level financial interests, the FBI and the Justice Department, and openly criticized US support for Israel as a threat to US security. Traficant was the only member of Congress to point out that US support for Israel was the root cause of the 9/11 attack. -- commentary by The Liberty Voice

Co-Dependency and The American Taxpayer

Americans, according to the IRS, are some of the most compliant people in the world when it comes to paying taxes. According to a 2008 Gallup survey sponsored by the IRS Oversight Board, "72 percent of citizens said they 'completely agree' that it is every American’s civic duty to pay their fair share of taxes, and 89 percent – the most ever – said it is “not at all” acceptable to cheat even a little. The most recent IRS review of compliance found that, in tax year 2001, an estimated 86 percent of taxes owed were collected." When it comes to taxes, more Americans than ever say, ‘Pay up’, The Christian Science Monitor

What an amazing finding. Americans, beaten, robbed, raped and lied to, still feel that it is their civic duty to pay for their fair share of the abuse, and that to cheat in funding that abuse would be totally unacceptable to their sense of fairness. If this doesn't sound like a dangerous co-dependency situation, I don't know what would.

To verify this diagnosis, let's see what Wikipedia has to say about co-dependency:

"The co-dependent is a person who perpetuates the alcohol or drug dependence of someone close to them in a way that hampers recovery. This can be done through direct control over the dependent or by making excuses for their dysfunctional behavior or relieving them of the consequences of the dependence. In an act called enabling, this can have negative social and health consequences for both parties."

If we just substitute the phrase "who perpetuates the alcohol or drug dependence" with "who pays taxes" I think we can be sure that we found the source of our national psychosis.

Today, this co-dependency has taken off to stratospheric heights as American's are making excuses for the massive debt spending that Obama and his Goldmen Sach's financial advisors are proposing. Today, they believe that America can spend itself to salvation, a sentiment that has long been contrarian to good-'ol fashioned economic conservation, and common sense.

Because of this willingness to enable and make excuses for bad government policy, we see the continuation of the spurious War on Terror and its destruction to Iraqi, Afghani, and American's psychological and physical well-being; the increasing militarization of the state based on the Great Lie of the century – 9/11 (which most Americans are loathe to contemplate); the rigging of the financial system leading to the inevitable bailout of the banks; and, the allowance of a preposterously high federal deficit, that if not forgiven through jubilee or the "odious debt" doctrine, will surely enslave ourselves and our children's children for perpetuity. Does paying for this sound sane to you?

Sanity, however, is a relative state of mind for those who can justify the follies and foibles of the failed state; they will call you irresponsible and crazy when you mention your intent to not pay taxes to finance these delusional fantasies and crimes. Alas, you will be labeled a bad citizen and blamed for the sorry condition of the state because of your unwillingness to pay to play. You are deemed a pariah to their ordered state of mind. Shame on you.

This indignation by the obedient taxpayer gets more pronounced when the crime of tax evasion is committed by the people who want to be their shepherds, people like Timothy Geithner, Tom Daschle, and Nancy Killefer – Obama's cabinet picks for Treasury Secretary, Health and Social Services Secretary and Office of Management and Budget. The taxpayer asks, "Why should the political elite get to play by a different set of rules than I? And, why are these powerful people only called out when they are running for office and it's politically expedient for them to do so." Life is unfair and they plead for the IRS to go after these fraudsters in a vain attempt restore their abiding sense of American propriety.

The problem is, the American state has never been about fairness, no matter how flowery or egalitarian the language of our founding documents. When Jefferson wrote in the Declaration of Independence that "all men are created equal," he meant all white, land-owning men, not his hundreds of slaves, or his concubine, Sally Hemings.

Today the American people, like Sally Hemings, are captive to a system that takes from them their labor, their pride, and their freedom. However, that captivity has always been reinforced in their minds. When Hemings had a chance to escape her bondage and live as free person in France, she concluded that living the life as a pampered slave was better than having to fend for herself in a new land, with a new culture, and new system of government. Her conscious probably tugged at her some, but just like the taxpayer today, her co-dependency on her master's largesse, and society's acceptance of the flawed, unjust system, enabled the system to survive much longer than it should have.

Today, the flogging and the chains may be gone, but in essence the American people are still slaves. How can they call themselves anything but? They obediently send their kids off to kill and subdue other people in countries that they know nothing about; they willingly pay for the phosphorus and cluster bombs that burn and dismember Palestinian and Iraqi kids; they submit to their and their children's debt bondage by playing the rigging of the system deficit/credit game. The chains on their minds are still there.

Americans need serious help if they want to kick the codependency habit. They will need to cut the umbilical cord and learn to walk, talk, and think on their own if they are going to rid themselves of this destructive problem. Some of the things they must to to do so is get rid of the debt-interest-based financial system that is enslaving them. They need to demand a substantial cut in the military budget that now exceeds 50 percent of tax expenditures, and, most importantly, they have to demand a real independent 9/11 Truth commission to look into the crime of 9/11 (and prosecute those responsible). This is unarguably the most important issue of our time. This is the fulcrum issue of the War on Terror, which is still brought up by the politicos and pundits as the reason we are in Afghanistan and Iraq. We need to remind ourselves that Obama is still fighting this war based on this event. Without examining and holding accountable those involved we are never going to fix this dysfunctional state and our codependent nature.
