The Dance of the Marionettes

The Financial Times has got a story out today about Prime Minister David Cameron appearing to be moving to the left, towards the Occupy Movement. Of course, he will lean which ever way the noose around his neck is tugged by the puppet masters. In fact, it seems that all leaders of the major UK political parties are trying to jump on the Occupy Commedia dell’art wagon because it’s all just bread and circuses.

As the article points out, “It’s not long since the coalition government warned that austerity would be a long haul. The pain will last through and beyond the 2015 general election. Ed Miliband stole a political march when he denounced “predatory capitalism”. This is not a space Mr Cameron wants to concede to his Labour opponent.

“Nor does Nick Clegg. The Liberal Democrat leader counts himself the guardian of the coalition’s fairness agenda. He is said to be developing a broader critique of the corrupted capitalism that rewards rent-seeking above enterprise and wealth creation.”

However, this is all just props and scenery-moving on the stage of the theatre while the marionettes dance to distract us. The agenda is clear, and it’s the same old agenda that various kings of England and US Presidents like Lincoln, Jackson and Kennedy fought against and lost. The powers-behind-the-scenes will squeeze the economy dry and then they will buy everything up at rock bottom prices, when they will also be able to cancel further expensive population control measures like chemtrail and vaccine programmes as their aim will have been achieved. These are the same architects of the Great Depression and how many died then? More than five million.

That economic booms and busts are not accidental but carefully stage managed theatre is well documented in history. For instance, this memo from the American Bankers Assocation went out to all bankers three years before the Depression.

“On September 1st, 1894, we will not renew any loans under any consideration. On September 1st we will demand our money. We will foreclose and become mortgagees in possession. We can take two-thirds of the farms west of the Mississippi, and thousands of them east of the Mississippi, at our own price …Then the farmers will become tenants, as in England.”

1891, American Bankers Association, as printed in the Congressional Record of April 29, 1913.

As Professor Milton Friedman said of the Great Depression in A Monetary History of the United States, 1867 – 1960, page 11.

“The drastic decline in the stock of money and the occurrence of a banking panic of unprecedented severity did not reflect the absence of  power on the part of the [Federal] Reserve System to prevent them … in retrospect, the contraction could almost certainly have been prevented and the stock of money kept from declining or, indeed, increased to any desired extent”.

Between 1866 and 1876, two-thirds of the nation’s money supply had been called in by the bankers. A further 10 years, to 1886 saw a further contraction, making a decline of 84 per cent in 20 years.

It couldn’t happen now?

In 2009, Stephen Schwarzman, chairman Blackstone Group said: “Forty per cent of the world’s wealth was destroyed in the last five quarters. It’s an almost incomprehensible number.”

By ‘destroyed’ , read ‘called in’.

The world is a stage

The 2009 meeting of Annual World Economic Forum at Davos was called Shaping the Post-Crisis World as if someone had already fixed the problem… the problem which hadn’t yet happened.

Even the Occupy movement, and I know this will be controversial, is a piece of theatre because it’s being funded by George Soros, never one to miss a good investment opportunity. Plus George knows that while we’re blaming the people that work in the banks, we’ll be distracted from who the real villains are.

So who are ‘they’ and how does their system work?

What’s often not understood is that the National Mint (or whoever prints your currency) actually prints debt. That’s why countries and peoples can never get out of debt.  We are using a debt-based currency. It is printed into debt. It doesn’t end up as debt because of profligacy. The government has to borrow the nation’s money supply into existence, and it’s been this way since at least the 700s CE apart from a brief hiatus in which this country flourished when we were released from its choking grip.

In the 700s CE in England, the purveyors of this debt-based currency were the goldsmiths and they ruled this country by controlling the public money supply, by ‘smithing’ or minting a debt-based currency of gold coins with which to flood the market when it suited them, and then calling it all in again whenever they felt like it, by hiking up interest rates. So before the reign of Henry I, this country lurched from boom to bust at the whim of the goldsmiths’ debt-based currency.

In the 12th century, Henry I changed all that by kicking out the goldsmiths and introducing a new system of currency which was not debt-based, and known as  tallysticks. Tallysticks were just that ~ polished  wooden sticks ~ and people used them for trading.

Money doesn’t grow on trees? It did then.

And now because England no longer had a debt-based currency, the nation boomed,  just as Rome had boomed until Julius Caesar, another marionette, introduced a debt-based currency.

England flourished under the currency of the tallysticks and it became one of the richest, most enterprising and most successful place on Earth for many centuries. Henry 1 also decentralised political power by creating the Charter of Liberties, and later on the Magna Carta came into being. This led to the first merchant class, and trade routes and thriving market towns built along them.

But unfortunately,  the goldsmiths were not going to give up that easy and, unlike us who just lurch from day to day,  they play a very long game. So in the 17th century, they found a way back into power in England through the back door and their puppet Oliver Cromwell, who beheaded our King, Charles 1st, and helped the goldsmiths to create the first Bank of England and we were then  returned to a debt-based currency and have suffered under its grasp ever since.

So when we hear their latest puppet,  David Cameron, calling for cuts and austerities and berating bankers bonuses and making us feel guilty because we ran up our credit cards, please remember this … the last thing that the Goldsmith Sachs want is our debts repaid, because then they’d have nothing with which to control us, and enslave us. You can even hear their song ringing out in the church bells across their personal fiefdom, the City of London.

Oranges and lemons,
Say the bells of St. Clement’s.

You owe me five farthings,
Say the bells of St. Martin’s.

When will you pay me?
Say the bells of Old Bailey.

When I grow rich,
Say the bells of Shoreditch.

When will that be?
Say the bells of Stepney.

I do not know,
Says the great bell of Bow.

Here comes a candle to light you to bed,
And here comes a chopper to chop off your head!

Chip chop, chip chop
The last man’s dead!
