Skepticism and the New World Order Conspiracy

I think skepticism is a good thing, a very good thing. There is nothing wrong with being skeptical and it can in many cases prevent one from being suckered into some big con or lie. Skepticism, however, can also be a very effective tool to keep the truth hidden from people. It can be used to prevent people from even wanting to know the truth, especially when presented by some very clever propagandist in a way that ridicules others. No one wants to be ridiculed and so when some "respected" source ridicules those who make some "fantastic" claim others quickly learn to keep their mouths shut and not question authority. Skepticism based on emotion or opinion is not skepticism, it is a simple choice to believe one thing or source over another. Sometimes the mind can't imagine that the incredible could be reality and so one tends to disbelieve based on that fact alone.

When an individual wants to believe something, or doesn't want to believe something else, it becomes much easier to convince that person of the perception he wants to be true. Let's take, for instance, the fantastic. Let's look at the example of UFOs. There was a time in the distant past when if someone saw a UFO most people would just take their word for it and it would remain a mystery. There are very old newspaper accounts which report such sightings in a matter of fact tone and don't question the voracity of the event. Later, there came a time when perhaps most people would laugh at anyone who claimed to see a UFO and call them crazy. How did such a turn around take place? Well, through well placed skepticism of course, and the manipulation of whether most individuals want to believe or not.

A better example is the Kennedy assassination. Here is perhaps the best documented example of skepticism for manipulation purposes. Immediately following this coup that ended up solidifying the rule of the elite hidden powers, the pieces were put in place to ensure a successful cover up and to prevent the American populace from asking too many pertinent questions or receiving too many honest answers. Back then, the "skeptics" claimed a lone nutcase assassinated JFK and anyone who disagreed with them and the official story was shamed, ridiculed, ostracized, labeled crazy, and otherwise minimized so their opinions would not be taken seriously. Some credible witnesses may even have been killed to silence them. Today, after considering all the available information to the contrary, anyone who still believes there was no conspiracy to assassinate JFK planned amongst some very powerful people is in a state of denial.

Conspiracies have happened. In fact, history is replete with them. They do happen. They are happening now. They will continue to happen in the future. It would behoove the conspirators, the elite who wish to implement their agenda of creating a one world authoritarian government, to keep the masses of humanity from believing that such conspiracies can even be conceived. Why? Because if the masses of humanity knew what they were up to, they'd be angry and they'd be able to put a stop to it.

So it is that the New World Order can operate right under our noses. So it is that an authoritarian, collectivist, one world governing body can be formed and no one does anything about it. So it is that a centralized power can be formed that holds influence over all westernized governments and many would welcome and even applaud it despite the fact that such a system is antithetical to the western values of individual freedom and liberty. So it is that a system of control, as it were, can be set up to control all economic activity, and can even be turned on the masses of humanity to invoke a police state or even "population control" in the name of mother earth or some other ethical sounding purpose if the ruling elite deem it necessary to do so.

This is the nature of the conspiracy against the common folk. Most of us don't want to believe it. It is therefore easy to convince people it is not true. It is easy to convince them to disbelieve anyone who would say it was true. It is easy to convince them that anyone who believes in such conspiracy theories must be crazy or paranoid. It is easy to get people to laugh at, or shame, or ridicule, or otherwise minimize anyone who would try to warn them about approaching tyranny that could lead to human calamity. It is difficult to get people engaging in such ostracism to look at the evidence presented by such grim prophets. People seem to want to believe that such things could never happen in their country, to them, or to those they know, that their government could never engage in such heinous activity, and so they remain skeptical in the face of criminality that would make the mob blush and make excuses for government officials as the iron fist of an authoritarian regime tightens its grip on the western world.

People want to believe that government knows best. That it is there to take care of them, to make sure bad people don't do bad things to them. They want to believe that government is like a loving parent protecting its children. But there are bad parents out there. There are parents that don't love or care about their children. And there are governments that don't love or care about their people. And they will set siblings against each other. They will use the promise of endearing one over the other to entice fealty to their cause. Such fealty has oft times proved ill placed.

You can continue to remain skeptical of the one world collectivist government conspiracy if you like. You can continue to ignore history. You can continue to turn a blind eye to the rampant collectivist philosophies and thought processes that pervade our own government right here in the United States. You can continue to listen to and believe government sources and their mainstream media propaganda and march in time with their drumbeat. You can be the best sheeple they want you to be. Just remember that you do so at your own peril. I choose to be skeptical of the official sources. I choose to be skeptical of those who are supposedly in charge. I choose to let them know that I am not fooled by their deceptions. I choose to deny them my consent.

School Shootings and Self Defense

There was another tragic event that took place on Friday, December 14th, 2012 in Newtown Connecticut. A young man killed his mother and then proceeded to a nearby school where he shot and killed more than two dozen people, most of them very young children. My heart goes out to the parents of those children who fell victim to this senseless violence. As a parent myself, I can't even begin to imagine the pain they must feel. No one should have to go through such an ordeal. Words seem to be woefully lacking when trying to offer comfort in a situation such as this, but one can only try as best one can to sympathize. I, like most sane people, wish to see a world where such violence is but a bad memory of a bygone era.

Unfortunately, politicians and the powers that be don't seem to want this. Instead, they seem to want to continue to divide people into two camps. They want to rally the collectivists who think potential victims should be disarmed to their side, while trying to alienate individualists who think everyone should be allowed to have the means to defend themselves through bullying anti gun propaganda and guilt by association. Every time such a tragic event happens, those who would try to control the masses of humanity use that tragedy to try to convince the common folk that law abiding gun owners should be forced to give up their means of self defense. It's happened time and time again and I personally think this kind of behavior by the political elite pushing their anti gun agenda is offensive and insulting to my intelligence.

I really have a hard time imagining what some of these anti 2nd amendment people think. Do they believe that laws are magic? Do they think that passing laws to outlaw guns is going to make all firearms suddenly disappear? Do they think that criminals are going to suddenly say to themselves "Well, guns are illegal now so I better just get rid of mine and give up my life of crime."? Do they seriously believe that criminals aren't going to take advantage of a disarmed populace? There's a reason that crime rates are higher in cities with more restrictions and lower where guns are more prevalent. We don't need more gun laws, or more laws of any kind. We need to learn why these events happen, what causes people to suddenly loose their minds and engage in such violent behavior, and then take steps to prevent that behavior. Perhaps we'd discover that we need to stop drugging our children with Ritalin and other psychotropic, anti depressant type drugs. Wouldn't the big pharmaceutical companies love that?

I wasn't going to write any commentary on this event. I hate the thought that such tragedy is so politicized. Then I heard the president of the United States come out with a statement that we cannot tolerate this anymore. As if it was ever tolerated. As if we don't already have laws against murder and the killing of innocents. Had the shooter survived he would have been most severely punished. Then the president stated he would do everything in his power to make certain this will never happen again. That is the statement that worries me. He is going to use this event as an excuse to violate the individual right to self defense and try to ram through more draconian gun laws, maybe even before the end of the holidays when no one is paying attention.

One person I talked to, a former teacher in Florida who now works making sure schools are implementing federal guidelines, thinks that teachers should be armed and trained to use guns so they can better protect the children they're entrusted with on a daily basis. If such a policy had been in place at any school where such tragic events have occurred how much less damage would have been done? How many lives would have been saved? Legal guns in the hands of conscientious owners save lives all the time. Such events don't make the national news. The elite political class wouldn't like it if people were constantly made aware of guns being used for self defense and to stop crime. That would put a crimp in their plans to disarm the populace.

There's a reason these attacks happen at places where guns are not allowed. There's a reason these cowardly criminals target people who can't defend themselves. One might wonder if these attacks would have even happened if these nutcases who want to kill innocents had thought for a moment that their targets just might shoot back. Tragedies are going to happen whether gun laws are in place or not. I think that the tragedy that happened in July 2011 in Norway, a country with very restrictive gun laws, proves that. It sickens me to think that people use such a sad occurrence to try to create an environment making it easier for criminals to operate and harder for innocents to defend themselves.

The Federal Reserve System, a Christmas Gift that Keeps on Taking

Ninety nine years ago this month, the law that brought the Federal Reserve System into existence was passed. It did so at the behest of some very wealthy and very greedy men who wanted nothing less than total control of as much of the world's total wealth that they could possibly get their hands on. These men with names like Aldrich, Rockefeller, Rothschild, Vanderlip, Kuhn, Loeb, Warburg, Morgan, Schiff, et al. wanted nothing less than total control of finances, currencies and economies worldwide. They wanted it so badly that they cared not what the majority might think, and they certainly didn't care what the common folk at the time might think. These were the robber barons of finance in their day, and they knew the general public wouldn't trust them or their banking schemes. It was for this reason they had to remain secretive in their plans and use every deception and political dirty trick in their arsenal to achieve their goals.

It took three years to set things up, but just before Christmas, on the 23rd of December in the year 1913, the Federal Reserve Act was enacted. It was sold to the American people as a sort of present to them, a way to stabilize the economy and prevent boom and bust cycles. What it was in actuality was a present to the wealthiest amongst us, the central bankers, and a way for them to gain control of our economy for their own benefit and to secure their power. It was a way for them to steal the real wealth of the common folk in such a way that most would never know or understand how their prosperity was being stolen.

Think about the date it was passed just for a second. It was just two days before Christmas. It was during the time when fully a third of the legislators had already gone back to their home states to spend time with their families. I'm not completely certain about how things were back then, but in today's world this is a time when most people are not paying attention to politics. I imagine it was the same even back then. Who wants to think about what politicians and lawmakers are doing when there are plans to be made for the big holiday? Any law that is passed at this time of year should be suspect. Any law that is passed after elections have taken place and before the new congress critters have taken their oath of office leaves too many of the political class completely unaccountable.

As many of you may know I am not a big fan of laws and regulations. The more laws we have, the more tyranny we have, the fewer laws we have, the more freedom we have. The law should be simple, if you do harm to an individual or you damage or steal his hard earned property, you should be held accountable. If there is no victim, there is no crime. If there are to be laws and regulations to make sure that no thought crimes are committed, however, than those laws and regulations should be restricting the political class and punishing them for breeching the laws. I think a good law would be that no legislation is to be passed during the period of time between an election and the swearing in of the new congress. That seems to be the time when the most constitution shredding, tyrannical, and controversial legislation seems to be passed.

But of course the political class and the power elite who control them don't want to create anything that limits their power, they want to limit what the common folk can do. They want to make certain their power base is maintained and grown. They want more power, not less, and so they are going to create laws and institutions that help them to gain it. They do this by removing or hiding what little control the common folk may have over the systems and institutions where the government claims to have a monopoly and consolidating that power as much as they possibly can. They consolidate their monopoly power on the use of "legitimate" force by bypassing congressional oversight in war matters and creating laws such as The Patriot Act, The Military Commissions Act, and the most recent NDAA to set up a police state. They consolidate their monopoly on the justice system and put power in the hands of their judges by constantly harping on finding people either "guilty" or "not guilty" of crimes and refusing to inform juries of their right and duty to judge the law. And so it was that they consolidated their monopoly on currency creation and removed power from the hands of the common folks back in 1913 by passing The Federal Reserve Act.

Before the creation of the quasi private, quasi public Federal Reserve the power to coin money was solely vested in the US House of Representatives and money was based on silver and gold. It took the promise of the gift of stable prices and maximum employment through "elastic" currency to "sell" the American people on this central banking scheme. These promises, of course, have been broken time and again, and we are currently experiencing the latest downturn in the economy and the most massive unemployment in decades as a result of this ill conceived creation of the powerful financial interests. As history has shown, this institution does not give anything to the common folk, it takes everything from them.

It takes wealth. It does so by creating debt in the form of "easy" credit. This credit comes in the form of fractional reserves which more or less guarantees that there will never be enough currency to pay back everything that is owed. In this way, the banks are set up to own anything real that a borrower possesses for a little bit of paper, or in modern days some ones and zeroes in some digital data bank somewhere. The central banks and their financial sector partners have a tendency to horde commodities of real value such as precious metals, land, etc. while issuing their debt paper to an unsuspecting public.

It takes lives. One of the first things that happened after the creation of the Federal Reserve was World War I. There is a school of thought out there that this would not have happened had the Federal Reserve not been created, or at least America would not have become involved. The "elastic" nature of the new American currency made it possible to pay for the war on the backs of future generations, otherwise the rise in taxes would have created political pressure to avoid war.

World War I was supposed to be the war to end all wars. Instead most of the wars fought in the 20th century stem from World War I. Who is it that constantly benefits from such destruction? Who is it that profits from such suffering? The military industrial complex that we were warned about, and those that finance them even more so.

The Federal Reserve takes away value. It keeps pumping more and more money into the system, creating it like the money itself is the wealth and not just a token of exchange. The more money that is available, the greater the supply, the less it is worth. Those at the top, the power elite, can spend it while its buying power is still high, but those at the bottom, the common folk, receive the money after its value has decreased. That is what inflation is really about. That is why the costs of necessities are rising. And now your federal government needs to tax you even more so that they too can maintain their spending addictions.

The Federal Reserve System takes our freedom. It takes away our independence. It profits off debt. For every dollar it loans out it expects to take back ten. It creates a debtor nation and then makes the citizenry beholden to it for economic survival. It makes the nation dependent on its currency and credit like a junkie is dependent on a drug. It takes away the political will of the people by creating the fear that we will not be able to get our fix should the currency supplier be held accountable.

The cycle can be broken. First, more people need to be educated as to the origin of the Federal Reserve as well as how other central banks operate. A full audit of the Federal Reserve needs to take place and all moneys accounted for. Secrecy must be stopped and transparency demanded. The people of the United States deserve to know where all their money, all their wealth is being spent, and why more of it isn't being saved to ensure prosperity for future generations. Finally, a way needs to be found to make the system accountable. No one should have such awesome power as a monopoly on currency creation enables. Strike at the source of the corruption, and we will begin to create a more honest and principled world for all to live in.

Nearly a hundred years ago, the Wilsonian progressives helped the moneyed elite sell the American public on a gift that to this day continues to keep on taking. Even Wilson himself realized he made a mistake when in later years he wrote: "I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men."

Today the so called progressives want to continue to raise taxes. They want to keep the burden on the common folk. They want to treat symptoms rather than remove the cancer and cure the disease. They talk about those making over $250,000 a year as if they are the wealthy while bailing out those worth $250 billion. They want to steal from those who have become successful through industrious hard work while ignoring those who have made trillions through fraudulent and questionable means. That is not progress, it is tyranny against those who should be lauded for their hard work and successful endeavors. If you want progress, start by tearing down the stale old institutions that have been proven failures. Such an institution is the Federal Reserve. We have already given it too much and still it wants to take more.
