Bankers Arrested, Civil War Averted, Economy On the Rebound

Dave Hodges December 14, 2013 The Common Sense Show

Who says there isn’t justice in the world for the globalists who continue to plunder the assets of average people? Four prominent bankers have been sentenced to prison and assessed hefty financial penalties.

The First District Court of Appeals sentenced four former Goldman Sachs Executives to prison terms ranging from three to five years in prison for financial crimes dating back to 2008. The Supreme Court, fearing civilian reprisals, has refused to hear the bankers’ appeals.

The mainstream media is reporting that Hank Paulson, former CEO of Goldman Sachs and Secretary of the Treasury as well as being known for being the architect of the bailouts, received the heaviest sentence of five years in prison. Paulson was ordered to pay $33.4 million dollars in fines. Along these same lines, former Goldman Sachs CEO and World Bank President, Tim Geithner, was sentenced to three years in prison along with being assessed a hefty $23 million dollar fine. The mastermind of the MF Global theft, former Goldman Sachs executive and the former Governor of New Jersey, Jon Corzine, was sentenced to four years an $18 million dollar fine. The most recent Goldman Sachs CEO, Lloyd Blankfein was also sentenced to three years and assessed a $13 million dollar penalty.

When hundreds of thousands of citizens showed up at the Capitol building and began throwing rocks at the building, this triggered the biggest civil unrest in the country’s history. The military refused to become involved and government officials cowered in fear as DHS fought off the protestors. Shortly thereafter, the beleaguered Congress rediscovered its backbone and issued arrest warrants for the four criminal banksters. Of course, Goldman Sachs and several other international bank entities warned the citizens that the country would collapse economically and it would become necessary to usher in martial law. This proved to be an empty threat, as the opposite ended up being true. The year following the arrests of these four bankster thugs, the economy grew at a rate of 2.6%. It is safe to say that the government will never tolerate the undue influence of any financial institution again. The country is approaching financial solvency. Goldman Sachs has been turned into a bed and breakfast location. Who would have thought that this would have been possible?

In a related story, Nancy Pelosi also went to prison for two years after being convicted insider trading on Wall Street. And Diane Feinstein went to prison for five years for repeated violations of conflicts of interest as Feinstein’s husband was the beneficiary of several no-bid federal government contracts. Obama was impeached and convicted for identity theft and most importantly, treason. Happy days are here again.

Fade to black….not in a pigs eye!

I would pray that these events would take place, but unfortunately, our bankster crime rate continues to rise exponentially.  However, the equivalent of these events, and more, just took place in Iceland.

Iceland

Icelanders must not eat GMO’s, their water must not be fluoridated and their men never need Viagra. If Americans were to ever travel to Iceland, they would find that the country has much more than just snowballs! Why? Icelanders have courage and intestinal fortitude. Meanwhile, back in the USA our sheep are too busy watching reality shows while, at the same time, running from reality. However, as the reader will soon discover, the circumstances in Iceland are unique and are not likely shared by other Western nations.  

True Justice

In an unprecedented ruling, Reykjavík District Court sentenced four former banking executives of the Kaupthing Bank to between 3 and 5 1/2 years in prison for financial crimes dating back to 2008. Vísir is reporting that former Kaupthing director, Hreiðar Már Sigurðsson received the heaviest sentence which consisted of five and a half years. He was also ordered to pay $33.4 million and also pay the government’s legal fees. There is a God and there is justice in Iceland as former Kaupthing chairperson, and former Interpol fugitive, Sigurður Einarsson, was sentenced to five years, and ordered to pay a total of $14.3 million as well as legal fees.

If the Icelandic people could get their hands on Goldman Sachs officials they would. They impeached and convicted corrupt politicians who were in league with Wall Street, many of which are serving prison sentences. Iceland is on its way to a full economic recovery while still saying no to the corrupt Goldman Sachs influences in Europe. Iceland is saying no to the Bank of International Settlements. Iceland is a beacon of hope for the rest of the G20 nations including the United States, or is it?

Why Did the Uprising Work in Iceland and Nowhere Else?

Gadaffi showed the same level of defiance to the corrupt banksters as did the people of Iceland, yet he is dead. What is the difference? In Iceland, the people are engaged and are committed. This was not the case in Libya and this is certainly not the case in the United States. BothLibya and the United States have been invaded by massive immigration (i.e. many al-Qaeda took up residency in Libya before the revolution) and America’s immigration issues have been well chronicled. Both countries lacked the solidarity which ultimately served to dilute their national resolve. Further, in America, the mainstream media keeps the masses docile and dumbed down while conducting their version of “Occupy America”.

The Major Reason Why Iceland Beat the Bankers

Most of Congress has been bought off. The so-called representative government is beyond the reach of the people. In Iceland, that is not the case and even if that were the case, it would not matter.

The most important fact related to the Icelandic revolution happened after the implementation of a type of self-governing approach which includes some elements of  Direct Democracy“. Icelanders have much more say in their government than we do. This is a huge advantage for the citizens of Iceland, as from this moment on, no external power can conquer their country thru hidden activities and the creation of bribed puppets. Politicians can theoretically be bribed, but it would not matter.

Iceland’s President Olafur Ragnar Grimmson was interviewed earlier this year at the World Economic Forum in Davos on why Iceland has enjoyed such a strong recovery after it’s complete financial collapse in 2008, while the rest of the West is still mired in debt, poverty and hopelessness to go with empty promises of an economic recovery.

When asked whether Iceland’s policy of letting the banks fail would have worked in the rest of Europe, Grimsson stated:

“… Why are the banks considered to be the holy churches of the modern economy? Why are private banks not like airlines and telecommunication companies and allowed to go bankrupt if they have been run in an irresponsible way? The theory that you have to bail-out banks is a theory that you allow bankers enjoy for their own profit their success, and then let ordinary people bear their failure through taxes and austerity. People in enlightened democracies are not going to accept that in the long run. …“

 

Conclusion

Americans have three choices if our nation is to recover: (1) Civil War; (2) Establish direct democracy and begin the political purge that will rid the government of the banker takeover; or, (3) Passively accept our present circumstance and embrace our ultimate and complete demise.

Our best and most effective course of action would be to work towards direct democracy. This would be a slow process because our government has stage four cancer. We would have to continually create one-term politicians until we got a majority of people who would grant the country a say in how they we are governed.

Some believe that civil war is inevitable as the bankster controlled government tightens its noose around the country. This could be the case when the government and its foreign assets begin to seize guns from American citizens. The implementation of Obamacare could prove to be the trigger event leading to the government’s need to seize the guns due to massive civil unrest. 

Given the fact that the past is the best predictor of the future, at least at this moment, I would bet that FEMA camps and the unimaginable lies directly in our future.

What do you think? Is there a way to galvanize the country and proceed against the existing establishment with a single purpose similar to what happened to Iceland? I would propose that we have an electronic town hall meeting in order to share ideas. Please share your thoughts on the comment board with regard to these questions and issues.

    great one Dave, you would have made a good Orson Welles I thought it was true until I got to the timmy G. Nancy P. and Frankenstein. Made my day and deflated my tires all at the same time.

  2. TTS December 14, 2013 at 6:39 am

    It will NEVER happen here Mr. Hodges, for two reasons:

    1) Cognitive Dissonance (SIN)
    2) God’s prophetic Word says it won’t

    It is a HOPELESS cause NOT because God says so, but because the God of Abraham is omnipotent and foresaw ALL THE EVIL PEOPLE living on the American continent in this present age, from before the foundation of this world. He foresaw the bullying (massacre) we inflicted upon the rest of the world (and 70,000,000 of our own children), especially upon innocent woman and children. He foresaw the sick media, drugs, partying, and sexual perversion lifestyle here in America that we corrupted the ENTIRE WORLD with. He saw the greed, and haughtiness over possessions and lifestyle (idols) that nearly EVERY American possesses. He saw the “sick”, “lame”, and lazy – most very capable of working – lined up in long lines to collect their government handouts so they could go home to sit on their behinds and watch soap operas and Oprah all day long.

    This country is going to burn to the ground in ONE DAY. Nobody is going to stop it because God has ALLOWED people to continue in their delusions until the very END.

    God is NOT responsible, people. Look in the mirror. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR OWN DEMISE, USA. YOU ARE CORRUPT AND EVIL TO THE CORE. God will allow you to burn you up in one hour – as his Word says – and YOU WILL BE FORGOTTEN FOREVER.

    Hey Dave I was just thinking, why don’t you write a book!!! I mean you write well your articles are catchy, you write prolifically, give it a shot. Start out the first chapter with the above as your opening, and then regress and tell in a page turning way how America went from great to &*#@&^^%^%^%!!!!! and then write the remedy. I would sure buy one, let me know what you think.
    Sincerely,
    Mike

    Well the original Tea Party, the one before Sara Palin and her ilk infiltrated and destroyed, could have done it. Do we as patriotic Americans, I mean lone wolf terrorists, have one more in us. I pray to God to bless us once more, though I admit we are probably the least deserving of it. Is your electronic town hall the answer? How about we form our own continuity of government outside the bought and blackmailed one we have now. Braying’s of a mad man I’m sure. Through inaction we give our consent by proxy. By doing nothing we are as guilty as they and even more so as God gave us the gift of knowing right from wrong. We are victims of divide and conquer. Keep us in front of our TV’s, in our houses, ranting at the walls. All the sound and fury signify naught.

    A nice illustrative article indeed.
    We of the US(S)A supposedly live with the best form of government ever created albeit not an ideal one. Ideal may be but an objective continually short circuited by those bent on the worse side of human nature, but hey – you have to keep trying.

    Of course WE have the best government system – we’re the USA Ra ra ra. Now take a few moments to consider the results. Not so great. Can the ‘system’ be improved upon whereas to prevent the abuses and illegal acts of the self serving few who control the system to the detriment of the majority?

    What we have now is good compared to the “***ism systems” but needs improving. Failing to address the shortcomings of the current rules and their implementation, will certainly lead to the same results in the future. Meet the new boss, same as the old boss will be sung again unless improvements are made.

    See, history has shown that ‘someday, eventually’ enough people will get fed up with the BS and abuses and react. That is happening in other countries around the world now. On the current trajectory our nation is on the same will happen here. When is the question, not if. The government seems to know this as well based on the bullets purchased and laws we’ve seen enacted recently.

    So what happens when push comes to shove? Unless it’s world war, civil war, or a ***ism government that is wanted (and we don’t), solutions and improvements to our form of government must be produced so that we aren’t left singing the same tune over again.

    This will require some hard thinking by everyone who wants a better outcome. Until or unless our natural rights of free speech and expression are voided I strongly encourage you to field your ideas. I strongly encourage Dave and the rest of the public speakers (primarily the newer media of the internet) to openly address specific solutions and improvements. Dave and the rest need to move from the “wake them up phase” to specific and concrete improvements, both from their minds and those of the public who are awake and aware of the deficiencies.

    Even when the colonies went to war against England they was little unity; certainly no “millions united in One Voice”. The answer isn’t to replace corporatism with socialism. The cries for civil war are frightening. The disinfo agents are pleased.

  9. Sharky December 14, 2013 at 8:59 am

    The airports are best places to watch sheep sub-culture. Watch the sheep obey their masters by removing their shoes, taking their radiation treatments (TSA always assures it is not a health hazard, yeah right) and getting their grope downs. Only a handful ever resist the scanners. I refuse to go though one and haven’t yet. There will probably be no options in the future. The latest budget agreement will hike air transportation costs by 124% from what I have read. How you ask? They need more money to build the detention pods and weaponize the TSA. Look it up yourself you don’t have to take my word for it. To answer Dave’s question, no there is no way to beat this. The people are too dumbed and cowered down to do anything. Hell they are developing stealth drones at area 51 the secret government site. CNN reported that a couple days ago.

  10. Ben December 14, 2013 at 9:23 am

    I don’t buy the comments by the Bible Thumpers, but I will say this; The physics of human interaction has proven time and again throughout history that nothing will be done on our behalf or by us until critical mass is reached. By that time it will be too late to avert the civil war, or a war against us because of our terrorist activities against many other nations on earth. This hope against hope is instilled in us from the time we were babies and is part and parcel to our religious beliefs about turning the other cheek. Well Dave, we have turned the other cheek and look what it has gotten us. Our disbelief that any group or person could be so corrupt and psychopathic has stymied our need for action against the aggression of the few.
    When it was stated that “The Meek Shall Inherit The Earth”, they didn’t mean the passive slave, but those of us with a kind nature. We may have a kind nature, but it does not absolve us of our responsibilities in keeping ourselves and our families from harm, no matter what form that harm may take.

    Hey Brother Dave Hodges,

    I can respect your most pointed articulation and satire attack with laser beam accuracy. . .however, please consider this: http://www.statice.is/About-Statistics-Iceland. Iceland’s population is about the same as Chattanooga, TN. These type of small area demographics would be much easier to consider via placing political pressure on the issues at hand. One could merely drive from district to district and hand out pamphlets organizing a civil movement against bankster occupation. Believe me, if that were the case in America I would have already started.

    We have a MAJOR problem in the United States and that is called “The Federal Reserve Bank”. That bank is literally run by Luciferian Doctrine (The Illuminati) and will disable anything that gets in its way. We should have heeded Thomas Jefferson’s warning back when our Founding Fathers first knew of the presence of the Illuminati. And yes, they did know of that presence. Please review the following documentation when you get a chance:

    http://jamesstivers.com/jefferson.htm

    The United States citizenry has permitted the corrupt behavior of the Federal Reserve Bank to grow “unchecked” for far too long. The Federal Reserve Bank of the United States needs to be eradicated. That would be my proposal. In order to do so such an incredible “education” effort would have to be bestowed upon the critical majority that would seemingly be impossible to impose on a dummied down populace in such a short duration of time (The Federal Reserve Charter renews this month). We laid down our arms for much too long.

    Ron Paul has been screaming for an audit of the Federal Reserve for numerous years. I have been watching the Illuminous activities within the Federal Reserve Bank for 15 years. Timothy Geithner, Larry Summers, Ben Bernanke, Henry Paulson . . .the list goes on with Greenspan, Goldman Sachs ~ the primal source of evil within our populace, is out of control. For it is we, the American people, that have permitted a power to grow to unstoppable proportions without heeding the advice of our forefathers. Now. . .we have to pay the price for those who failed us in the past and hope that “we” who can see what is going on can organize something to disable the machine at work (Kennedy tried it, and we know how far that got him).

    Bro Dave, I am in agreement with making an attempt at local districts with a cumulative national effort to limit terms served by our representatives. We should also heed to the advice once presented by Gerry Spence that I will paraphrase at this time. “Everybody’s name [who is capable] should be placed on a piece of paper and put into a drawing bin where it will remain until ALL capable citizens [active community participants] have had a chance to submit. A time and date should be announced for a drawing to be made from the bin for the local representatives name to be pulled from the bin.”

    The previous recommendation may sound a bit absurd, but it gives you an idea that people with the mindset many of us presently have ~ have been in existence. It is just we failed to heed their warnings early enough (like Gerry Spence). So what do we do? I propose we continue going ballistic with alternative news reports until we can get enough people “informed” and “interested” to the point where they recognize we have a significant concern. Most people are so dummied down or burdened with debt that they are intimidated by the forces that presently exist. That is a MAJOR problem and the banksters know it. Why else would the banksters hand out car loans and student loans [not to mention home loans!] to people that can ill afford them? They have “enslaved” our populace. They HOLD the rope that circumvents the necks of the partakers.

    I have made a contribution. . .as have you. Now it is up to each and every person that reads your articles, and other people’s informative threads, articles and posts which “educate” and “inform” the masses. . .before it is too late. From my present perspective, it would appear it is too little too late. Prepare for the worst. And that means getting very close to our Creator and praying for guidance, repentance and acceptance into the next step we take through progression whether that be in human form, or spirit form.

    God bless you for your contributions. I’m ready to go ballistic with informing local state and district representatives in Utah about the idea proposal for further ideas. However, I already know it will probably work in Utah. That is, unless the Illuminati forces have infiltrated the church of the Latter Day Saints. Myron Fagan was an LDS contributor to this type of issue long before you or I knew about the Illuminati forces. In fact, he has a very good speech that is published on the Internet that was made about 4 years after the assassination of JFK. That is located on my blogging thread. You have the address.

    Keep the faith, Dave. As Benjamin Franklin once said (another who gave us fair warning) ~ “We must hang together, gentlemen…else, we shall most assuredly hang separately.”

    TTS: totally agree, as most everyone is stuck in stupid/self absorbed/ dumb as a stack of bricks. Savvy folks know our families/close knit friends must interact, form a bartering network, to incl skills fixing things, raising veggies, etc. and brace for the worse to happen, hoping it won’t collapse in our life time. It’s a good time to be “over the hill” as some of us can look back and see that younger people will not have it good like the post war generation who many have already retired. Raising kids today is not a great idea as this country is sliding into the abyss.

    I like how you mentioned Gaddafi. He is a true hero in his attempts to remain free from the NWO. His nations population was the same size as Ireland and the people truly tried their best to keep their nation from being taking over, but the military brute force of NATO along with the mercenary invaders / al-Qaeda was too much. As for America, the only way we’re going to re-establish the republic is if there’s a nation wide rise in consciousness about what’s really going and who’s really in control.

    This article is nothing toget excited about why the luciferians are in control God was thrown out by who those politicians and the other elk that for years you never paid any attention to so get ready the events and show will go on these few little ones where sacrificed and will end up in hell why betrayed God and Country and never cared about the Ten Commandments that are still valid to follow. The events planned are still coming my advice start repenting big time stop putting your. Efforts into sports good times and a bunch of nothing’s

    Good one Dave! You had me going there for a minute! Sigh.
    Here is my theory. There ail be a false flag event such as a bank cyber attack. The banks will collapse (oh no! the money’s gone!). Somehow they will manage to eliminate their debt problem and shaft the countries who loaned us money. People will panic/riot. Marshall law will be declared (to restore oder) guns will be confiscated. People sent to fema camps (for their own protection). This will give them the excuse to eliminate paper money. All “money” will become digital i.e. bitcoin or another version. We will be “allowed” to exchange what paper money we have for electronic money, but not in a way that is beneficial to us.Inflation will follow We’ll have to pay with our thumb/palm print (hello data base) Cash transactions will cease. That way they can track every purchase. Ammo will be hard to come by and very expensive. Perhaps a black market will rise up to fill the void.

  19. C. Gonzo December 14, 2013 at 6:11 pm

    I have a simple solution to our corrupt government – get rid of it. That’s right, trash the federal government, along with every rule, regulation, statute, and law associated with it. Do we really need it? What good is it doing anyone? None that I can think of that’s worth two craps. Let the states rule themselves. I strongly suggest reading ‘EXTORTION How Politicians extract your money, buy votes, and line their own pockets’ by Peter Schweizer, to get an idea of the corruption we’d be without if the federal government were abolished.

    The one thing that i remember the most clearly over the past 40 years of my school days at Brandeis University in 1970’s are my student adviser’s words that when he was growing up that his grand parents and parents used the term “‘goyishe kup,’” meaning that the “Non-Jews are Stupid”
    Later in life I learned that the exact translation of “GOYISHE KUP” means that the “Cattle are STUPID”..
    I remember him recalling what his father told him when he was growing up in Eastern Europe. One of them being that when his father was in high school he and a group of friends would skip school early on Fridays and go over to his friend’s father’s butcher shop. That they would buy at cost any cows , that had not been butchered by the end of the day on Friday before the start of Shabat . They would take the cow home and wash it and then the boys would procede to “beat the udders of the cows so that they would swell up and turn pink” so as to sell them to the “GOYISHE KUP” as milk producing cows.
    The part that I remember him asking me if the East Europeans are so “naive, so gullible and so stupid” to buy an old “non milk producing cows” from a bunch of young Jewish Boys.
    So re-thinking of it now I agree with the Jewish saying that the “GOYISHE KUP” are indeed” Stupid” as they believe that a Bunch of Arab Moslem Kids who were not able to Fly a Cessna Airplane took it upon themselves to FLY a Jumbo 747 and outwitted the US Militaryand Civilian authorities. The “Jewish Lightning Insurance Scam” of the 1960’s is still alive and well has been put to good use by Larry Silverstein in putting 15 million down and comming out with 7 billion dollars for buidings that no one wanted to buy because it would have cost a billion dollars to remove the asbestos from. Then on top of that the people in America actually believe that they actually decide who is elected President or for that that actual VOTE is really counted and makes a difference in deciding who represents them in the White House and congress.

    We as a whole must do to the banksters here what the Icelanders did to the banksters in their small nation. Yes, Iceland’s population is about the same as that of Chattanooga, TN, but that didn’t stop them from doing their duty. If they can do it with such a small population, then, we can do it with a huge population of over 300 MILLION. At least half of this country’s population is armed to the teeth, many of whom are hunters and/or combat veterans who are more than capable of putting a huge dent in the banksters’ forces.

    Nobody thought that the colonists would win against the world’s then superpower, Great Britain; but their determination – along with their knowledge of the terrain – contributed to their victory and independence. The Colonies’ best diplomat, Benjamin Franklin, used his diplomatic skills and charm to win over support from King Louis XVI of France, who eventually lent support to the struggling colonists; and, eventually, a new nation was born.

    As the ancient Chinese warrior-philosopher Sun Tsu had written in his book THE ART OF WAR, a small guerrilla force will prevail over a much larger, stronger enemy force, mainly because the guerrilla force is fighting to defend the homeland, and they have a complete knowledge of the terrain – something which the enemy force does not. This is just as true today as it was in Sun Tsu’s day. Just look at what happened in Vietnam in the ten years US forces were fighting; the Vietcong didn’t have any of the high-tech weaponry the US had; yet they prevailed. Why? They were defending their homes and families, and they knew the terrain inside and out. They were able to use crude weaponry to their advantage. If a civil war does break out here, those of us who will be fighting the corrupt govt will have to employ the same tactics against the enemy as the Vietnamese did, or as the Afghans did against the Soviets nearly two decades later.

    Dave,
    I think the idea of trying to get the awakened folks garnered together into a town hall meeting is a good first start. However, wouldn’t an electronic town hall meeting get picked up and monitored by NSA?

    Dave: your´s outstanding. How many americans have a mason friend and think he´s a jolly good fellow? As all present
    troubles can be reasonably pointed against the jews, their names are everywhere, don´t lie and indicate a conspiracy
    practice, not a theory but pitifully, many analysis, at this point. have americans slowly coming to the conclusion of the enduring jewish problem with an ominous end in sight yet, seldom it is approached the jewish power with the full knowledge of it´s means, because jews wouldn´t achieve anyything without gentile complicty and that´s the point where
    masonry comes into play. Under the oath of secrecy and obedience most politicians do the dirty work for the present circumstances,as rhey have done in the past. You happen to know that this or that politician was a mason when reading the obituary be the late a general, an admiral, a minister, a judge, an official, a sheriff, or a USS ship named after him. An openly token philantropic and utmostlly veiled sociophatic political contrivance it´s the upper degrees regular cooking at the masonic lodges. Yes, it´s a taboo word to be mentioned at social gatherings but,in order to set in motion an orderlly change in America, start to have a check on the neighborhood masonic lodge names, make a national list and don´t let them be candidates, to run for office, or be DA, or Police Dpt. Chieff,or judge or attend religious services of a known masonic minister or pastor. Erradicate traitors that sell teir fellow beings for “thirty coins”. Yes, the founding fathers wee mostly masons but, once the independence was achieved and the nation established, the next step toward the NWO, with jewish banking support and command, masons followed an unconfessed path seconding
    jewish WORLD DOMINATION GOALS irrespective of the price of sacrificing americans blood, jobs, health, homes and welfare. Perhaps, the Iceland success secret lays in having few jews and very few seconding masons.

    Only a military coup can save US, as the sheeple are still on board the plan to attack Syria and Iran. They still believe the economy is strong, that everything will be all right, and life is much better if you see, hear and speak no evil. The military coup would involve massive death of the most of the District of Criminals and Martial Law, but that would probably be better than a Wiemar style collapse and a full scale nuclear war.

    The good news is there will still be NFL on Sunday no matter what happens (yes, that was sarcasm).

    One country has to fulfill bible prophecy as the “Mystery Babylon” and I’m sorry to say but it looks to be the U.S.A. Iraq certainly doesn’t fit the mold. We can delay the inevitable, and I believe we have to some extent, however, we must prepare for what is to come, and it is coming. We can hear the footsteps of the enemy approaching.

    Great news. Not nearly wide spread enough. Most of the national debt is a figment of bankers’ and politicians’ delusions.

    Now we need to start on cops who don’t recognize that a person is innocent until proven guilty, and who treat suspects as though they had already been tried, found guilty, and sentenced. The city councils and mayors who condone the actions of those cops need to be disciplined even more.

    There is a lot of finger pointing and complaining, but not much in the suggestion department in the posts above. Mark said in his above post, “limit terms served by our representatives. We should also heed to the advice once presented by Gerry Spence that I will paraphrase at this time. “Everybody’s name [who is capable] should be placed on a piece of paper and put into a drawing bin where it will remain until ALL capable citizens [active community participants] have had a chance to submit. A time and date should be announced for a drawing to be made from the bin for the local representatives name to be pulled from the bin.” I think that’s great.

    The first thing we need to do is subvert those in power by enacting term limits for ALL public office.

    We need to amend the constitution so that no former elected official can become a lobbyist.

    We need to amend the constitution so that corporations cannot make campaign contributions.

    We must audit the federal reserve. It is a private company, but we aren’t allowed to see its books or know who the owners are and it can create money out of thin air. Does that make sense to you? Watch the documentary “End Of The Road: How Money Became Worthless.” It is excellent and will bring you out of the matrix.

    We need manufacturing jobs in this country. Multinational corporations are loyal to shareholders and quarterly profits, not America. China is stealing their technologies as they take our manufacturing jobs and poison us with their often toxic, low-cost goods. Slaves who are beaten and starved in work camps make our goods and the Chinese are killing mother earth in the process. Because we all must have an I-Phone or pay $15 for a coffee maker instead of $20 or $25 for a coffee maker. White collar jobs are next on China’s agenda and it’s going to be too late. They are building their military faster than any nation since Nazi Germany and we’re paying for it! WE MUST HAVE TRADE REFORM WITH CHINA. THAT WILL BE THE BEST CREATOR OF JOBS. PERIOD. The rules have to change away from China’s favor. Level the playing field for our own good. This is not a liberal or conservative issue. It’s an American issue. If you’ve not heard of the documentary, “Death By China” it’s only an
    hour long and available on Netlflix. Please watch it. It’s very well done and thought provoking. Copy and paste this message in an email to your representatives. Find them here http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/ and here http://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm

    Do your best to buy goods made in places other than China, hopefully the U.S.

    Move your money to a local credit union. If you bank with Citi, Wells Fargo, BofA, or Chase, you are the problem. They can loan out ten times what they have in deposits and they loan to companies like Exxon and Shell and others that rape our planet. Find a credit union here http://www.asmarterchoice.org/

    Shop local and at farmer’s markets. Refuse to buy GMO’s and try to buy organic, especially if you eat the outside of the fruit, like strawberries or apples.

    Grow some of your own food. Have a garden. It feels good to not by 100% dependent on our system and to get free food. Plus it is spiritually rewarding.

    We must rewrite the tax code. Flat tax or Fair tax make the most sense.

    Stop using Google. Use search engines like http://www.ixquick.com. They don’t data mine or record searches to later be given to the government.

    Pay for your email service so they can’t mine your data! I pay $5/month for Hushmail and emails between Hushmail users are fully encrypted. Google and Yahoo and Hotmail ARE NOT FREE. They simply don’t cost money. Ever wonder how you get banner ads that pertain exactly to what has been in your emails? Every single email you send and receive is read. It’s like sending a postcard. Encrypting emails is like putting them into a sealed envelope.

    Stop the launch of drones. This is so important. The FAA is currently reviewing plans to launch 7400 drones in domestic skies by 2015, most by law enforcement. The ACLU is currently fighting this.

    Whenever you surf the internet use Tor browser or log in using a virtual private network (VPN). Surf the internet anonymously. I use http://www.witopia.net

    Buy a nonregistered gun at a gun show. If you think the government won’t ever institute martial law and come door to door to collect registered guns, you are seriously naive.

    Pay with cash! Your spending habits are your business. In addition, it puts more money into the pockets of businesses as they won’t have to pay transaction charges to credit card companies.

    Never, ever shop at Walmart. They are guilty of so much I can’t possibly go into it here.

    Get some of your money out of the U.S. dollar. Buy silver or gold coins. Junk silver coins are minted before 1965 and are 90% silver. If chaos hits, this is what you’ll want to have. The banks will be shut down and you’ll have no access to cash. If you think that sounds silly, see what happened in Greece and Spain earlier this year. Check junk silver prices here http://www.goldeneaglecoin.com/buy-silver/90%25-silver-us-coins

    If you can afford to go solar, DO IT! If you can afford to go off the grid, EVEN BETTER!

    Check to see if you have a “smart meter” on the side of your home. They not only emit radiation, but record the movements in your home for the utility company to extrapolate your living habits to sell to third parties so you can be marketed to. That information is also available to the government. They know when you’re home. Shouldn’t we at least be able to move around anonymously in our own homes? I strongly urge you to watch this film http://www.takebackyourpower.net

    If you don’t know about the FEMA camps. Do an internet search and decide for yourself what they mean to you. Use http://www.ixquick.com

    Know the truth about 911. It matters. Go to http://www.youtube.com and type into the search box, “Was the pentagon hit by a plane?” Clearly it was not, so why are we being told that it was?

    Watch the documentary THRIVE and join the Thrive community. The movie can be viewed for free at http://www.thrivemovement.com

    ML said: “Certainly not keeping Sunday, Easter, & Christmas (all pagan). God created the 7 day week in Genesis & your wall calendar shows 7 days each week, so you can’t claim not to know when His 7th day Sabbath is. (See 10 Commandments)

    Excellent post, so true. I left the organized, brick and mortar, church for good (non-denominational full-gospel) eight years ago because the God of Abraham opened my eyes to the truth and because church leadership tried to convince me otherwise with a ridiculous argument in favor of “Sunday Sabbath”, instead of addressing our law-breaking.

    Christmas and Easter fall into the same category. You might as well be celebrating Halloween on these dates.

    There is not ONE organized, Sunday Sabbath church in the USA that is not apostate. All have been corrupted by capitalism and the IRS, and all of them – obviously – break God’s Divine Law. Run, folks, as fast as you can.

    I am curious, ML, how you get your fellowship – what you do for church fellowship. If you see this again please respond.

    I have noticed, and this is confirmed by various sources and actions and that is HSBC is in the process of Divesting all interest and business activites in the USA. They are getting totally out of the Real Estate Market, and also Credit Card Processing for various processors. One comment from a HSBC Employee source is saying HSBC is feeling the heat from being corrupt and leaving the U.S. because the laws are no longer in their favor. HSBC has been caught for Laundering Money for the Drug Cartels, Surprise Surprise!! But what about the HSBC Bank sponsoring of Credit Card Processing aspect. Which isa very profitable arm of finaicial services. Is HSBC also realizing that the U.S. is in the Pre financial collapse stage, and they are cutting their losses now also? Any any of you other peole have any input on this banking subject? Banks Cutting and Running from the law and financial collapse?

    I decided the bible thumpers are correct and so I became one.

    I think we must do the small things for now. I stopped paying the TV to lie to me and my neighbors, and I stopped TV pushing homosexuality and licentious on us. O’s war on Syria was the last straw for me. I cut my income so my taxes are lowering too. Get out of the system if you decide to stay in the country.

    Here is a small thing: A single woman who could not speak and was afraid but asked Garret Lear to drive 6 hours to go to her school to support her demand that the school stop preaching homosexuality to her 10 year old child.

    She performed inadequately, she thought. But maybe just showing up to confront the devils is enough to knock them down because nobody ever shows up! 15 other pastors refused to go with her.

    The story is here:

    What isn’t mentioned here is that brave little Iceland took deposits from citizens in other European countries such as England. When they defaulted they seized all the deposits and only paid out their own citizens. So they basically took money from many people in other countries, mismanaged the hell out of their banking system and when it inevitably failed then they bailed out their citizens by keeping the deposits of citizens of other countries. There is nothing brave or honorable in this. They did not fight and beat the big banksters. They screwed other people to compensate for their incompetence. If there is one thing I have noticed about the new generation X managers. They are lazy, incompetent and amazingly good at covering their a_s when things fall apart.

  33. Patrick Sullivan December 15, 2013 at 10:48 am

    It is not prison that is needed, the plan is to be shutting Auschwitz and the police state down. Merely removing the authority to issue money from the hands of the bankers, and putting it into the hands of the people, will end war and the nuclear menace.

    To gain control of the authority to issue our money, labor will need to STRIKE THEM OUT.

    The authority to issue money is the “ORGANIZING PRINCIPLE” of society.

    Must we not act together and ORGANIZE ourselves for peace?

    We must have labor act collectively to gain control of the issue of our money to STOP THE WAR. Must labor not end the genocide that the bankers are waging upon Father’s village?

    Must labor not STRIKE THEM OUT NOW?

    Look to Iceland for an example, but it will only work up to a certain point. There are reports that the “Pots & Pans” revolution has recently failed, in that their own parlaiment turned and betrayed them all in favor of the corporatists and now Iceland is as bad of as it was in 2008. Their efforts to craft a new constitution have been fillibustered to death and utterly defeated by those traitors they themselves elected. See the report on WhiteoutPress.com. The major think we have to keep on the front burner is about how we face an entrenched enemy which isn’t going to quietly surrender to us. They know every dirty trick in the book and know how to use them…while we don’t. They don’t call themselves Luciferians for nothing. That’s a learning curve that must be addressed if we will find a way to free ourselves. Freedom is possible, but it won’t be easy, especially since we are so fractured among ourselves as to what should be done.

  37. Ray December 15, 2013 at 12:45 pm

    None of the prescribed actions will occur , because the same ” Tribe ” that is in control of the U. S. Banking system is in control of the S. E. C. and Justice Department ! And if it was ever to occur , we would never hear of any action due to the fact the Tribe also controls the MSM .

    To start the ball rolling for relief out of this convoluted mess, it would have to start out with all the Sherriffs in every county to stand up for people’s rights, to serve & protect. Stand up to the Feds.
    The people need to back them up & stand behind them. Then the Sherrifs hire decent cops with balls
    who are accountable for their actions, fire the psychopath cops & clean up the police force to serve the public. It all starts right there, the police force is the elites biggest tool. Stop using cops for fund-
    raising & extortion for the corrupt court systems & private jails.
    Second in line is the military. They all should refuse to go overseas, every one of them & instead
    demand for duty as reserve, otherwise apply for disability because of insanity.(post traumatic disorder) Only the thousands of privat companies now are left to do the dirty work & are paid with
    fiat papermoney to receive Fed. government contracts to enForce BS. Now its time for all the people
    to stand up with guns to make them eat their own shit. Mostly foreigners will try to knock on your door
    by then, so we hand them chocolate & cigarettes & boze & invite them to our party.
    Sounds insane even to me, but its a start.
    The reality is, that we are all totally poisoned, fluoridated water & fluoridated salt turned us into do-
    mesticated dumb cows. We could not even decipher the biggest lie of all: Overpopulation. It is
    poisoning all of our minds & beliefs, making each one who believes this shit worthless, killing our
    dignity, respect & love for each other.

    Cause, let me tell you, our planet is so very beautiful, abundance all around. You take one seed & turn
    it into a forest, plant fruit trees & count your blessings. Our earth can easily support 100 Billion humans. We got the technology. They are using this stolen technology underground. There are huge
    cities underground, they live in total luxor there. They will extort us forever & eat us alive using all those surveying techno on us, main;ly for human trafficking, abduct us & trade us into slavery to other
    planets. They already poison our kids (6 years old) in schools with antidepressants to turn them into a
    piece of mindless meat. They kill every inventor, scientist who might be able to spill the beans fo their
    technologies they hoard.
    Free energy was invented by Tesla a hundred years ago. They got that for themselves, while they
    kill us with oil & chemicals & lies & deception.
    I do not think these are humans, these elites, they are just tools for some greedy aliens who want
    this planet for themselves. The chemtrails are to kill us off slowly & make it livable for these strange
    aliens. I feel sorry for these elite stupid tools.

    Direct Democracy of the people is even easier to control then a republic

    The only way pure democracies work is if everyone lives in the mountains or a small island nation and are people who depend on nobody but themselves – a place like Switzerland or Iceland perhaps but to suggest that individuals in the USA who line up to buy shit on black Friday when they have no money – is a joke.

    People who have been told and taught what to do and say are not free. It is actually anti-freedom in a story wrapped up in freedom (you are free now listen to me.) – now pledge allegiance to – what we tell you to – ok.

    Stupid is what stupid does… Stupid does not do democracy….Period. Representative government over stupid people is the only chance we have at anything lasting longer then a SANDYHOOK media moment.

    People are great as individuals they suck in crowds and are easily controlled to do that ever the current Media people tell them to do. The day the average American turns off his TV and puts it on the curb is the first day in the long journey to democracy. Intelligent people are needed to run a democracy – and truly only works if you spend your entire life doing it…Free Enterprise does not work unless you spend time working on your business.

    I don’t know what people do in Switzerland or Iceland but here in the USA people do things that take time and then they do other things that doesn’t have to do with thinking…We call it freedom but it is not democratic nor is it needed to be free… Just people who actually represent you are all that is needed.

    Thanks for trying to help us but we don’t need your help about democracy – we need it about the rule of law.

    Peace happiness and love,

    Dan

    The best answer is to restore Glass-Steagall. In order to do that, we must put unbearable pressure on our Congress members who have not signed onto it. Glass-Steagall separates commercial and investment banking. The investment arm cannot use taxpayer or depositors’ money to bail out their casino style gambling debts. That will give them something to worry about so that they will leave the American people alone.
