My litmus test for all politicians is this: Will you arrest the bankers? This one litmus test will unite all segments of society against Wall Street and the City of London in all aspects of the presently unrestrained evil they do.
Some are concerned about the theft of public funds by the bankers. On March 22, 2000 Susan Gaffney, the Housing and Urban Development Inspector General, testified before the House Governmental Affairs Committee detailing the 59.6 billion dollars that went missing from HUD during the previous two years. When asked if she did anything to recover the missing money she said ‘No.’ On 9-10-2001 Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld admitted that he could not trace 2.3 trillion dollars in DOD spending. Later that night a billion dollars in gold and silver went walk about from a COMEX vault at the World Trade Center. Dr Jim Willie has estimated that the US Treasury 3.5 trillion dollars sold more in bonds than were needed to fund the budget deficit. To Date not one Senator has asked the Treasury Secretary about this during Senate hearings.
Billions of dollars are being stolen from taxpayers every week. And we are expected to pay billions more in interest to the banks on money they created out of nothing. This need not be. If we arrested the bankers, we could then demand the right to seize their assets and pay back the people whose pensions and savings the bankers stole.
Some are concerned about 911. And others oppose the wars and are genuinely ashamed of the war crimes committed in their name by our Banker Occupied Government. On 9-11-2001 hundreds of auditors were busily at work at the Pentagon attempting to trace the 2.3 trillion dollars in taxpayer money that had gone missing when they were killed by the third 911 attack of that day. We were told that 4 planes had been hijacked by 19 Arabs and that somehow those planes flew over 8 air bases without being challenged once.
The official story is that a pilot who failed the test to rent a single engine Cessna was able to take a 270 degree turn in a power drive and guide an airliner away from a position to strike Rumsfeld’s office to the other side of the Pentagon to kill the auditors. No professional pilot to date has accomplished this amazing feat in an airline simulator let alone real life. The Armed Forces Institute of Pathology could find no traces of Arab DNA at the Pentagon crash site. And the video of the passengers boarding Flight 77 reveled no Arabs.
Also on 911, records at the Securities and Exchange Commission offices at WTC 7 were destroyed. 911 made it impossible for the SEC to pursue charges against several Wall Street banks and other firms that had violated their fiduciary responsibilities with ENRON which had gone bankrupt. The destruction of WTC 7 also terminated other SEC fraud cases saving Wall Street moneymen billions of dollars. Jim Willie said that the evidence about more US Treasury bonds being sold than required for the deficit was destroyed along with Cantor Fitzgerald’s offices on the 101st-105th floors at the WTC North Tower. Prior to that day 25% of all Treasury bond sales went through their offices. Goldman Sachs had to stop trading when Cantor’s server went offline.
The attacks on 911 were used to justify the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq even though President Bush was telling allies he was going to invade Afghanistan months before 911. And Osama bin Laden died from kidney disease before the invasion. He denied doing 911. The FBI said they had no evidence that Osama did it. Iraq had no weapons of mass destruction. And those 4 airplanes were most likely hijacked electronically by the Command Transmitter System which had been unveiled in the 1990s. It was owned by SPC International whose President rabbi Dov Zackheim became Comptroller of the DOD and was supposed to find that 2.3 trillion dollars that went missing. Another trillion dollars went missing on his watch.
If we arrested the bankers and seized their assets, what wars could they start? How many Americans would be dying for Wall Street if the bankers were in jail?
Some are concerned about the unequal distribution of power. A study at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology revealed that world trade was dominated by 147 corporations who owned each other’s stock and shared interlocking Boards of Directors. Consider America’s inability to stop Monsanto from selling GMO food. Or consider Matt Taibbi’s article in Rolling Stone in which he admits the conspiracy theorists were right. All the markets are rigged. Wall Street and the City of London are rigging the stock and bond markets, the interest rate swap market, the foreign exchange market, precious metals and others as well. These 147 corporations which include the top 16 banks are centralizing power and using government regulations to bankrupt their competitors in small businesses. Included in these 147 corporations are the big media firms and their financial partners who control debate in the mainstream press. The bankers literally do not care that bankrupting small businesses and farms slows economic growth and makes our nations poorer. They want control over growth.
If we arrested the bankers and seized their assets, imagine how easy it would be to organize campaigns against Monsanto. Or demanded that markets be free so small businesses and farms could compete with the mega corporations.
Some fear the rise of the National Security State. Who do you think demands that you lose all of your liberties so you are powerless to demand the return of the money they stole from you? Who do you think supported legislation that grants the President of the United States the right to summarily execute anyone in the world whether they be a citizen or not?
If we arrested the bankers and seized their assets, imagine how easy it would be to organize campaigns against NSA snooping, drone strikes, secret prisons and torture.
Some would like to have open, honest and fair elections. Bev Harris at Black Box Voting has demonstrated the dishonesty of vote counting. She is the one who showed the program code that multiplied the votes of selected candidates instead of adding the totals. Millions of votes are stolen every year. The 147 corporations limit speech so most voters are not even aware of the real issues. We are not free to discuss substantive issues in any depth in the Mainstream media. Politicians are free to ignore us and even dared to pass laws making it illegal to assemble peacefully and petition the government with our grievances.
If we arrested the bankers and seized their assets, imagine how easy it would be to organize free and honest elections and to grant access to all sides in political debates in the mass media.
Most would like to greatly reduce the level of drug abuse and crime in their cities. The banks launder over a trillion dollars a year in illegal weapons and drugs . The banks also launder over 500 billion dollars in political bribes every year. A $20 bill weighs one gram. 1.5 trillion dollars in $20 bills weighs 75 billion grams or 75 million kilograms or 75,000 metric tons. Do you honestly believe that the US and British governments have not given a greenlight to money laundering? Her Majesty’s Jewish Government declared war twice in the nineteenth century against China to expand their Opium trade. And the CIA has been flying planeloads of cocaine and heroin into the US for decades.
If we arrested the bankers and seized their assets, imagine how easy it would be to save our cities from this savage crime wave which has enriched the Uber Rich for hundreds of years.
I would count myself in all of the above groups and also in those who favor the abolition of poverty. We live in societies where the economy seems for some reason to be driven by a series of Booms and Busts. The cause obviously to me is fractional reserve banking. If you deposit $10 in a bank, they can loan out $100. The bankers pay us interest on $10 but charge us interest on $100. All of that money loaned out creates a Boom because total demand equals consumer demand plus money invested from the proceeds of loans. These loans can and do cause Booms in real estate or stock markets that were unjustified which then result in Busts. When loans are either paid back or cancelled through bankruptcy, the money supply contracts. Why? Because all money starts as a loan at interest. Money supply contracts if loans are paid or cancelled. The greatest monetary contraction or Depression in American history began in 1873. It was at one time called the Great Contraction but is now called the Long Depression. During the most recent Depression from 1929 to 1939 a minimum of three million Americans died from starvation.
If we arrested the bankers and seized their assets, imagine how easy it would be to end fractional reserve banking.
Some would like to end the unequal distribution of wealth created by the banking system. Currently we must work to pay interest to the bankers on money they created out of nothing. Imagine how rich you would be if you collected interest on all money in circulation including checking accounts and credit card balances. All unpaid balances are subject to compound interest. This further impoverishes the citizenry. If government created all money and credit as a public utility without interest, there would be no public debt and our interest payments for personal and business loans would be greatly reduced. We would end the transfer of wealth from us to the bankers.
If we arrested the bankers and seized their assets, imagine how easy it would be to create a non-interest bearing currency like President Lincoln’s Greenbacks.
Dare to imagine a world without Wall Street and the City of London. We can do it.
