Plunder beyond belief, FED reluctantly shows the smoking gun.

I have for decades been trying to explain the parasitic nature of the global financial regime and the political order that has become subservient to it. Now, the evidence has become so overwhelmingly obvious that even the most dubious and somnambulistic amongst us cannot ignore its meaning. On December 5 I posted an item that included Senator Bernie Sanders’ courageous speech about the class war that is being waged against virtually everyone by the super-wealthy elite. In that speech, the Senator referenced the long awaited report from the FED that Congress has demanded. This report has started a firestorm involving even the mainstream financial media. In this recent article, David DeGraw, lays it all out in detail (Wall Street’s Pentagon Papers: Biggest Financial Scam in World History) with numbers and quotes from various sources. Please read it. Now it is up to us to do something about it. What can be done?

The Great Unraveling—Entering Stage Two

There has been very little recognition of the Debt/Growth Imperative that is built into our global system of money, banking, and finance. As I have been preaching for many years, the creation of money as interest-bearing debt requires that indebtedness, in either the private sector or the public sector, must be continually increased at an […] Read More..

Money and Oil: The agenda in Libya becomes more evident

I hadn’t noticed it before, but on March 22, Bloomberg reported that, Libyan Rebel Council Forms Oil Company to Replace Qaddafi’s.Well, we’ve grown to expect things like that. The more interesting development reported in the article was this:The Council also said it “designated the Central Bank of Benghazi as a monetary authority competent in monetary […] Read More..

Stop Chasing the Buck and Change Your Luck

Cashless trading based on credit clearing is moving into its next stage of development, the optimization and scale-up stage. Established groups and associations are beginning to recognize the importance and urgency of disengaging from conventional structures of money and banking, reclaiming “the credit commons,” and reorganizing the exchange of value under local community control.
