Nick Hanauer is a rich guy, an unrepentant capitalist — and he has something to say to his fellow plutocrats: Wake up! Growing inequality is about to push our societies into conditions resembling pre-revolutionary France. Hear his argument about why a dramatic increase in minimum wage could grow the middle class, deliver economic prosperity … and prevent a revolution.
“Divine right” and “trickle down economics” are the historic and modern way to say “aristocrats” and “peasants”. But is that economic disparity sustainable? No. It inevitably ends in revolution. When the people are too poor to feed their children, the aristocrats are fair game.
Most aristocrats and most peasants do not want a revolution. Some aristocrats do, because they want us thinned out so they can control us better.
Sane, logical, rational “aristocrats” want what Nick Hanauer wants. Others – the psychopathic others – want to control the world and feel the thrill of overpowering, even destroying, everything that is good, beautiful and true, including nations. Of the two factions in the .01%. Hanauer’s is the viewpoint of the more sane. The other faction wants to suck up all resources so it can control the peasants. It also traffics children, drinks blood and eats human meat…
Shocked by that last sentence? See our very own Kerth Barker’s books. He was trafficked by them. His books help connect the dots and will prepare you for the inevitable, upcoming public revelation of those things that only the psychopathic element in the .01% indulge in. It is not pretty, but better to ease into the subject gently in the comfort of your own home, than to have it sprung on you unawares.
Ronald Bernard ~ Former Dutch Banker testifying at the International Tribunal for Natural Justice (ITNJ)
A poignant recollection of Ronald’s life from innocence into an abusive family, then time in a poisonous Catholic institution for abused children, where he was even more abused. Ronald’s heart shut down more and more until he also became an abuser and joined the criminal system that is full of hate and feeds on the misery and destruction of humankind. His story goes full circle, all the way to his rejection of child sacrifice, his return to clarity, healing, and his true nature – the love in his heart.
Ronald’s story gives deep insight into the challenge we face as the human race. Will we continue to judge and hate, or will we begin the road to healing for all the damaged hearts in our world, including our own? Healing is possible and essential if the human race and this pretty little planet is to survive and be safe for us all.
He says there is one thing criminals hate – and that is pedophiles. Prisons are not safe places for pedophiles. Their days are numbered once they are jailed for pedophilia.
Well worth a watch. Should be required for every member of the ill-dark-and-naughty. You can tell hearts were touched by the faces of the listeners in the panel and audience. Sometimes just one tiny tear can break an ancient evil spell.
You can sign a treaty at https://www.itnj.org/itnj/itnj-treaty/ – just reading it is a lovely reminder of what we really, deeply want in our world and lives.
Very detailed research and analysis of Epstein’s background showing ties to Mossad, State Department, Nexium, AIG insurance (Silverstein – 911) and etc.
Polly digs deep and finds information dating back to age 20 on Epstein. A 2 time college drop out who nails a teaching job at a prestigious NY school without a degree. In his early 20’s ties are found to 2 major investment firms. The first he is fired from but not charged, the second his partner went to prison for 20 years and he walked.
What we learned is that … the IRS continues to process tax returns with false W-2 information and issue refunds as if they were routine tax returns, and say that’s not really our job. We also learned the IRS ignores notifications from the Social Security Administration that a name does not match a Social Security number, and you use your own system to determine whether a number is valid.”
Commissioner Koskinen was asked to explain this. He suggested that as long as the information is being used only to fraudulently obtain jobs, the IRS was OK with it. In fact, he said that the IRS actually had an interest in helping the illegal immigrants to crook these rules. In fairness, perhaps it’s just the ‘that’s not my department’ response that abounds in big government. Perhaps this just isn’t the IRS’s problem, but it sure seems odd to have any agency chief encouraging illegal immigrant theft of SSNs.
You’ll love this next part. The IRS chief tried to distinguish between the various bad uses and misuses of someone else’s personal data. It is at least vaguely reminiscent of the flap a year ago that differentiated President Obama and Donald Trump over immigration and taxes. Mr. Trump said illegal immigrants get $4.2 billion in tax credits. A 2011 audit by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration confirmed that individuals who are not authorized to work in the United States were paid $4.2 billion in refundable credits…
This is not fantasy. They just made us think it is. ALERT! Everything is a lie. We were about to go down the toilet and then were miraculously saved – all while we were focused on everything but what is the most transformative event in living history.
May 26, 2018 “Information Clearing House“ – If the neoconservatives had self-restraint, they would sit back and let America’s Fifth Column—Neoliberal Economics—finish off Russia for them. Russia is doomed, because the country’s economists were brainwashed during the Yeltsin years by American neoliberal economists. It was easy enough for the Americans to do. Communist economics had come to naught, the Russian economy was broken, Russians were experiencing widespread hardship, and successful America was there with a helping hand.
In reality the helping hand was a grasping hand. The hand grasped Russian resources through privatization and gave control to American-friendly oligarchs. Russian economists had no clue about how financial capitalism in its neoliberal guise strips economies of their assets while loading them up with debt.
But worse happened. Russia’s economists were brainwashed into an economic way of thinking that serves Western imperialism.
For example, neoliberal economics exposes Russia’s currency to speculation, manipulation, and destabilization. Capital inflows can be used to drive up the value of the ruble, and then at the opportune time, the capital can be pulled out, dropping the ruble’s value and driving up domestic inflation with higher import prices, delivering a hit to Russian living standards. Washington has always used these kind of manipulations to destabilize governments.
Neo-liberal economics has also brainwashed the Russian central bank with the belief that Russian economic development depends on foreign investment in Russia. This erroneous belief threatens the very sovereignty of Russia. The Russian central bank could easily finance all internal economic development by creating money, but the brainwashed central bank does not realize this. The bank thinks that if the bank finances internal development the result would be inflation and depreciation of the ruble. So the central bank is guided by American neoliberal economics to borrow abroad money it does not need in order to burden Russia with foreign debt that requires a diversion of Russian resources into interest payments to the West.
As Michael Hudson and I explained to the Russians two years ago, when Russia borrows from the West, the US for example, and in flow the dollars, what happens to the dollars? Russia cannot spend them domestically to finance development projects, so where do the dollars go? They go into Russia’s foreign exchange holdings and accrue interest for the lender. The central bank then creates the ruble equivalent of the borrowed and idle dollars and finances the project. So why borrow the dollars? The only possible reason is so the US can use the dollar debt to exercise control over Russian decision making. In other words, Russia delivers herself into the hands of her enemies….
Thomas Edison knew this a century ago. His comment was published in the new york times! Apparently this country did have economic literacy and a free press at one time long ago:
That is to say, under the old way any time we wish to add to the national wealth we are compelled to add to the national debt.
“Now, that is what Henry Ford wants to prevent. He thinks it is stupid, and so do I, that for the loan of $30,000,000 of their own money the people of the United States should be compelled to pay $66,000,000 — that is what it amounts to, with interest. People who will not turn a shovelful of dirt nor contribute a pound of material will collect more money from the United States than will the people who supply the material and do the work. That is the terrible thing about interest. In all our great bond issues the interest is always greater than the principal. All of the great public works cost more than twice the actual cost, on that account. Under the present system of doing business we simply add 120 to 150 per cent, to the stated cost.
“But here is the point: If our nation can issue a dollarbond, it can issue a dollar bill. The element that makes the bond good makes the bill good. The difference between the bond and the bill is that the bond lets the money brokers collect twice the amount of the bond and an additional 20 per cent, whereas the currency pays nobody but those who directly contribute to Muscle Shoals in some useful way.
” … if the Government issues currency, it provides itself with enough money to increase the national wealth at Muscles Shoals without disturbing the business of the rest of the country. And in doing this it increases its income without adding a penny to its debt.
It is absurd to say that our country can issue $30,000,000 in bonds and not $30,000,000 in currency. Both are promises to pay; but one promise fattens the usurer, and the other helps the people. If the currency issued by the Government were no good, then the bonds issued would be no good either. It is a terrible situation when the Government, to increase the national wealth, must go into debt and submit to ruinous interest charges at the hands of men who control the fictitious values of gold.
Look at it another way. If the Government issues bonds, the brokers will sell them. The bonds will be negotiable; they will be considered as gilt edged paper. Why? Because the government is behind them, but who is behind the Government? The people. Therefore it is the people who constitute the basis of Government credit. Why then cannot the people have the benefit of their own gilt-edged credit by receiving non-interest bearing currency on Muscle Shoals, instead of the bankers receiving the benefit of the people’s credit in interest-bearing bonds?
Russia and the USA have a common enemy which threatens their very existence, the invisible empire. Isn’t it time to make common cause with a natural ally which helped us through both the revolutionary and civil wars?
How does it all work? Banks, for instance… “shadow banking”, “We make our own rules…” We can fake any papers…” “Birth certificates…” “Countries are private corporations…” “The top criminals of this world are backed by law…”
Harsh freezes in SE USA after the fruit trees bloom. Nature is neither stupid nor cruel. But humans can be both foolish and greedy. Could it be the weather is rigged to benefit those who deal in the “futures” market?
A futures market is an auction market in which participants buy and sell commodity and futures contracts for delivery on a specified future date.
What are those planes dropping in those huge plumes that spread out against the blue sky, making it white and hazy all day? Who funds this costly operation? Some call the discharge chemtrails or the activity geoengineering. It’s a nasty business, but somebody has to do it so that investors can bet on “futures” and make a killing on the stock market… and perhaps literally a killing, to wreck crops and reduce the food supply to reduce the population to their “ideal” 500 million mentioned on the Georgia Guidestones.
Who controls the food supply controls the people; who controls the energy can control whole continents; who controls the money can control the world. – Henry Kissinger, 1973
