H/T To Atlas Shrugs for this this video posted yesterday. Watch the video and you decide if 2+2=4 when it comes to the timing of this electronic bank run. (Damn, another rabbit hole to chase down now!)
The Number One Video I have seen of the 1000s that I have watched showing upclose and personal what has occurred and is occurring right now in our monetary system. After watching this, if you still think that Dr. Ron Paul is a flake and was not completely marginalized by the American Pravda known as the Main Stream Media, and that Peter Schiff, Ron Paul’s Economic Advisor on his presidential campaign is a complete moron, then you have been hypnotized and did not even know it. Watch the whole thing and pay attention to the dates the quotes were made.
If you have taken the time to read “The Fed” page at the top of this blog, you will know that Henry Paulson, the Secretary of the Treasury has a very different agenda then saving our economy.
I found this video today and it has a critical timeline of quotes from both Henry Paulson and Peter Schiff. The theories could be wrong about who is behind the collapse, but the fact the collapse is immiment is not wrong. It is coming, get prepared.

Republic of Lakotah leader, Russell Means, being interviewed by Alex Jones of InfoWars on 1/9/09. I am still trying to figure out what I think about Alex Jones because of some of his very controversial stances, but I already know that Russell Means has his act together, and you may be interested in what he has to say about a good number of issues including the Federal Reserve and our patriarchal society. Russell Means makes some points that you may want to think about. I, of course, have been sent down yet another rabbit hole in search of information on something that Alex and Russell spoke about…more later on that…..

It is well that the people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a REVOLUTION before tomorrow morning – Henry Ford
Welcome back to those die hard Americans that really want to know what is happening behind the scenes of the marketed campaign to keep the general populace too anesthetized and/or worried to pay attention to what the “powers-that-be” are doing.
In the first article of this series, I started with the Federal Reserve System and we will be going back to them soon enough, but I thought that you may be needing a bit of a break from your blood pressure medication and/or pitchers of whatever adult libation that you may have been pounding down to get through G. Edward Griffin’s explanation of how the NY Banks never gave up their stranglehold on our economy. I also wrote about the other players in this web; the Council on Foreign Relations, The Wall Street Banks, and the Bilderberg Group, and am now adding the United Nations and the Trilateral Commission to the list.
As with the Federal Reserve, we are going to take this slow and easy with a couple of introductory videos. Many of you may already know about these groups and future articles will have more indepth research attached.
It is a commonly held point of view that where myths are concerned, there is a grain of truth somewhere in the background of the legend. I personally operate under that premise and look for the truth somewhere in the middle. I am asking that you suspend your disbelief for a moment and watch these two videos, (about 20 minutes in total), and then ask yourself, given the numbers, is it possible that with what we now know about the Federal Reserve System and Jekyll Island, there is a plan for a New World Order, and this is the first salvo in bringing down The United States Of America and crushing our freedoms? You may also want to take a moment to read Ms Placed Democrat’s Martial Law And The Bailout about troop training inside our borders to “quell civil unrest” due to the economic collapse.
It is also important to watch both videos even though the beginning of the first video seems way over the top when it comes to tinfoil hat theories, it does settle down quite a bit and there is valuable information imparted in both.
Two more facts to think about while watching these videos:
The estimated membership for the Council on Foreign Relations is 3000, and those 3000 “elite” hold 75% of the wealth in this country.
Ben Bernanke, Chairman of the Federal Reserve unexpectedly attended the Bilderberg Group’s meeting here in the U.S. back in June.

If the American people allow private banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all their property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered - Thomas Jefferson
(Author’s Note: For those of you that are stopping by but are unwilling to spend the time to watch the videos and read the whole article, then you will remain one of the unwashed masses that the power elite of this country have been using for hundreds of years….you and your children will have to live with the consequences.)
Monster Readers; are you ready? Have you put on your comfy jammies and set yourself up with snacks and a beverage of your choice because you already know this is going to be a marathon session?
As you all know, a few weeks ago I put up a note about receiving an email and during the course of the research on one single item, it blossomed into an intricate web with an ever growing number of rabbit holes to follow for information and a quest to decipher what was real and what was tinfoil hat conspiracy theory. My intent with this series of articles, (and I still don’t know how many), is to show you all the pieces; those that can be ascertained and those that fall into the latter category, and give you the opportunity to decide for yourself.
The email you ask? The email I received was all about the Amero; a new form of currency supposedly being minted in Denver to replace a collapsed American Dollar when the North American Union of Canada, the United States, and Mexico are formed in direct response to the European Union and our unpayable $10? Trillion National Debt. (I have run across figures as high as $44 Trillion, but cannot confirm the accounting yet.) The characters in this chess game; The Federal Reserve, The Council On Foreign Affairs, The Wall Street Banks, and The Bilderberg Group. I am sure I am going to run across at least a few more before the series is over because I am still digging, and this also explains why we have not heard anything in months on the FBI’s investigation of Wall Street Banks.
The challenge for this series of articles has always been in the form of two questions. Where does one start with the players in this chess game, and how does one take an otherwise boring and overwhelming subject and make it simple and interesting enough that the average reader stays focused and embeds the most important material in such a way that creates THE immediate and profound action that is required to save our families and our way of life? We are going to start out easy by explaining the most important player, The Federal Reserve. In later articles, I will explain who really OWNS the Federal Reserve.
At this point, I must give kudos to one of my readers, Ginny, who pointed me to G. Edward Griffin who wrote, “The Creature From Jekyll Island; A Second Look At The Federal Reserve”. I have run across other books about this subject, but I am starting with Mr. Griffin because he explains it in the simplest terms. This may help overcome some of the mental trauma we experience when we think of trying to understand the banking system in this country, and believe me, you need to settle in and understand just how much danger we are in at this moment in time with the $700 Billion Bailout, the $2 Trillion the Fed gave out before the $700 Billion, and the $1 Trillion (estimated) that the PEBO is going to print for stimulus. The Federal Reserve is printing money out of thin air and then charging us interest on that money, and there is no end in sight. This is the reason that the “powers-that-be” will force the collapse of the dollar to start anew and every single American will be financially devastated, and then asked to accept the Amero at cents on the dollar. The time to educate yourselves is NOW, and here is just one link to what is happening behind the scenes; readiness for mass rioting. This also may explain why a completely unknown black senator was installed in the White House. The “rich, white, money men” kill two birds with one stone, and the black community loses all credibility of ever having another black person put in such a place of power because the first black president presided over the biggest collapse of an American Economy EVER. Think that is far-fetched? Applying that theory really does explain how someone like Barack Obama with such a jaded past, hidden documents, no experience, and total self-absorption could become the fall-guy for the Wall Street money men. ALWAYS FOLLOW THE MONEY!
What follows is a series of 12 videos of G. Edward Griffin’s lecture on his book and the material is riveting and easy to understand; so get comfy. These videos are a little over an hour in total and explain the who, what, where, when, and especially, the why of the Federal Reserve starting with the 7 New York Money Men who decided in a clubhouse on Jekyll Island, Georgia in 1910 to create the perfect “banking bill” that would achieve their ultimate goals and completely fool the American public into giving away ungodly amounts of money over the years, and bailing out American companies in bad times to keep the shell game going. If you wish to just hear the audio, go to the bottom of the article and listen to the very last video. (Author’s Updated Note: I have had a few requests for the original 12 part video as people were in the middle of watching them. Those 12 videos are from 1994. I recommend the 12 part for detailed information on exactly which NY Bankers were involved in crafting the FRS. The 5 part series on a 2008(?) Interview follows)
If you are not completely angered by all the money going to Wall Street right now, this will definitely up the ante.
…or are we just too busy trying to keep roofs over our heads, and our children fed?
Do Not Be A Sheeple!!
Just asking, just want to know…
The Monster has had so much angst for days now that I have not been able to write anything until this evening when I read an article that was reminiscent of a post I wrote back on December 12th entitled “Is The Fed Following The Lead Of The One?” concerning the secrecy behind $2 TRILLION of emergency Loans.
I know you all remember the $700 Billion (TARP) Bailout for the banks that was rushed through the Congress against the wishes of most of the American Populace by the Republican President and Democratic Congress in keeping with the wishes of one Hank Paulson. I am still wondering how one man with, what looks like, a hidden agenda ended up panicking so many politicians. In my household there is a saying “panic will get you killed”, and I am thinking that there are more Americans than just me that believe that statement on some level. I am not panicking, I am getting angrier by the minute by an article I just read, and I believe that in the distraction of The One, The Rahm, The Blago, The Cheney, The Biden and the Dipsticks in Congress, y’all might just miss this:
WASHINGTON (AP) — It’s something any bank would demand to know before handing out a loan: Where’s the money going? But after receiving billions in aid from U.S. taxpayers, the nation’s largest banks say they can’t track exactly how they’re spending the money or they simply refuse to discuss it. (emphasis mine)
If I was a Republican senator or congressman, I would be jumping on this issue like a rabid pitbull with lockjaw. Hint..hint…(Getting re-elected is easy for a Champion Of The People).
“We’ve lent some of it. We’ve not lent some of it. We’ve not given any accounting of, ‘Here’s how we’re doing it,'” said Thomas Kelly, a spokesman for JPMorgan Chase, which received $25 billion in emergency bailout money. “We have not disclosed that to the public. We’re declining to.”
Ladies and Gentlemen, you just became the largest bank in the world and are loaning money to bankers who will not tell you how they are spending it. How does that make you feel? Do you think that is a better investment of your dollars, than say, your retirement or your child’s college education?
The Associated Press contacted 21 banks that received at least $1 billion in government money and asked four questions: How much has been spent? What was it spent on? How much is being held in savings, and what’s the plan for the rest?
None of the banks provided specific answers.
I guess we should be calling in the marker, yes?
“We’re not providing dollar-in, dollar-out tracking,” said Barry Koling, a spokesman for Atlanta, Ga.-based SunTrust Banks Inc., which got $3.5 billion in taxpayer dollars.
Some banks said they simply didn’t know where the money was going.
A bank not writing the dollar amounts in and out? Say What? Does that sound as ridiculous to you as it does to me? I am calling bullsh** on that bold faced lie.
“We manage our capital in its aggregate,” said Regions Financial Corp. spokesman Tim Deighton, who said the Birmingham, Ala.-based company is not tracking how it is spending the $3.5 billion it received as part of the financial bailout.
The answers highlight the secrecy surrounding the Troubled Assets Relief Program, which earmarked $700 billion – about the size of the Netherlands’ economy – to help rescue the financial industry. The Treasury Department has been using the money to buy stock in U.S. banks, hoping that the sudden inflow of cash will get banks to start lending money.
There has been no accounting of how banks spend that money. Lawmakers summoned bank executives to Capitol Hill last month and implored them to lend the money – not to hoard it or spend it on corporate bonuses, junkets or to buy other banks. But there is no process in place to make sure that’s happening and there are no consequences for banks who don’t comply.
So a Bailout Bill was written for the express purpose of unfreezing credit markets and no provision to make sure that happened?
“It is entirely appropriate for the American people to know how their taxpayer dollars are being spent in private industry,” said Elizabeth Warren, the top congressional watchdog overseeing the financial bailout.
But, at least for now, there’s no way for taxpayers to find that out.
Dec. 12 (Bloomberg) — The Federal Reserve refused a request by Bloomberg News to disclose the recipients of more than $2 trillion of emergency loans from U.S. taxpayers and the assets the central bank is accepting as collateral.
Bloomberg filed suit Nov. 7 under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act requesting details about the terms of 11 Fed lending programs, most created during the deepest financial crisis since the Great Depression.
The Fed responded Dec. 8, saying it’s allowed to withhold internal memos as well as information about trade secrets and commercial information. The institution confirmed that a records search found 231 pages of documents pertaining to some of the requests.
“If they told us what they held, we would know the potential losses that the government may take and that’s what they don’t want us to know,” said Carlos Mendez, a senior managing director at New York-based ICP Capital LLC, which oversees $22 billion in assets.
This is reminding me of Paulson going to the White House with 3 pages about the the Bailout Bill, and IMHO, it probably was scrawled in crayon considering these people HAVE NO IDEA how to fix this problem.
