Inflation in America – Part I: Five signs of inflation, from rising prices, to shrinking candy bars, to increased fees


How to avoid an inflation-induced household budget crisis that may be creeping up on you now

Inflation is unfamiliar to Americans who are not old enough to remember the horrors of disco. Not since the 1970s has America seen the kind of price inflation that is rampant today, in all its many forms. In the first part of our inflation primer Inflation in America we give you the basics. Like a frog heating slowly in a pot of water, if you’re not aware of how inflation works its corrosive effects on your budget you may find yourself financially cooked.For over a decade you have seen high, often double-digit, annual inflation rates in college tuitions, housing prices, and health insurance. More recently you’ve witnessed gasoline, heating oil, natural gas, and food price inflation. Soon you will see prices go up at the local Made-in-China big box mart, thanks to rising wage rates and a strengthening currency in China.

The primary cause of our inflation is the depreciating dollar, now off more than 50% against the euro over the past several years. We will go into that sorry process in Part II of our series. In this part we reveal stealth inflation and its impact on the quality of your life and your household budget, and what you can do to protect yourself.

Inflation: Level versus rate, what is versus what shall be

Inflation Sign #1: High and rising prices. Inflation is not only higher prices but high and rapidly rising prices. Understanding the difference is key to understanding the nature and process of inflation. A recent Harper’s Magazine article by Kevin Phillips “Numbers Racket” ($ubscription) argues that the true annual inflation rate in the first quarter of 2008 was closer to 12% than the official 4% reported as the government’s consumer price index (CPI-U). Twelve percent is a very high inflation rate by any standard, and when it comes to inflation the rate of change in prices is more important than a high versus low but stable price level. Here’s why.

Let’s start by looking at the impact of a high inflation rate on a household budget. At a 12% annual rate of inflation income earned in December one year and saved has 12% less purchasing power by the following December. You can see this in gasoline prices. A gallon of regular gasoline in the US cost $2.88 at the start of 2007 and $3.39 by mid-April this year. That means the $50 that purchased 17 gallons of gasoline a year ago buys only 14.5 gallons today. If your ride gets 24 miles per gallon, as the average US car does, a year ago $50 took you 408 miles but only 348 miles today, or one less round trip daily commute for the average commuter. That’s what “loss of purchasing power” means; the same dollars earned from your labor purchase fewer goods and services than before. You are working just as hard but you can afford less, at least with cash. Your credit may expand to fill in the goods and services affordability gap, and with it your debt, and that is why the current inflation is not hitting households as hard today as in the 1970s.

In the two recessions of the 1970s, consumer credit growth peaked about six months before the CPI. Consumer credit declined through the recession and inflation after. During the most recent recession in 2001 both consumer credit and CPI inflation increased in tandem during and declined after the recession. At this writing both inflation and consumer credit are moderating. However, during the 2001 period the US dollar was not weak and in a period of structural readjustment as it has been since 2001. Consumer credit is likely moderating due to the credit crunch that is spreading across the financial system while a weakening dollar continues to push energy prices up and inflation through the economy.

 As goods and services prices are rising the US economy is slowing. Jobs are beginning to dry up. Competition for the remaining jobs prevents workers from to demanding salary increases. Rising household expenses and stagnant wages result in a household cash flow squeeze.The relief valve? For consumers with the best credit the result of more borrowing to cover expenses is increased debt and reduced savings. With prices of goods and services rising while incomes stay flat, households attempt to make up the difference in the loss of purchasing power by borrowing more to purchase the same quantity and quality of goods and services as in the past – to maintain the material quality of life to which they have become accustomed. Households drain savings and increase household debt as inflation cuts into household cash flow.

If you are not careful to adjust to inflationary conditions you may find yourself with more debt than you can handle and not enough savings for your future needs even if you remain employed and earning the same salary as before.
Danger Signs
Rising inflation is slow and subtle. Like a frog heating in a pan of water, you need to be aware of the following signs that inflation is cooking your household budget. If you have not increased the frequency of travel, eating out, or other spending over the past six months but your savings account is dwindling and your credit card bills are rising, you may be on a path to an inflation-induced household budget crisis.

There is no painless way to cope with inflation and get your budget back on track. The steps you can take are much like those you’d take if you decided to take a pay cut and economize. What makes adaptation to inflation tricky is that your income may be flat or even rising – but not as fast as price inflation is rising around you.

To manage the impact of inflation on your budget short term, target those items in your budget that you can control and are your largest expenses. For most Americans that is transportation, food and groceries, utilities, and entertainment.

One week gas rule: Set a cut-off price for filling up the tank once a week and only drive as far as you can travel on that tank of gas
  • Take public transportation: Grab a train or bus when you can
  • Carpool to work with friends: It’s more fun than you think
  • Clip joint avoidance: Set a cut-off price for entrees at trendy, over-priced restaurants
  • Eat out less, cook at home more: Home cooked food is better for you anyway

Inflation’s impact on business: Your local restaurant

Have you noticed prices on the menu going up at your local restaurant even though it’s not as crowded? To a business like a restaurant that cannot increase exports like IBM or Cisco can to take advantage of a falling dollar to boost revenues, inflation means higher input costs resulting in less positive cash flow and declining real profits. Here’s what is happening to your local eatery as a result of today’s inflation.
Let’s say in April 2008 the restaurant’s monthly gross revenues are $100,000 and expenses $70,000, so gross profits are $30K for the month. The owners take $10,000 as personal income and add the remaining $20,000 to the cash account to pay taxes and other expenses later. If that cash account held $40,000 at the end of March at the start of May it holds $60,000. Payments for raw ingredients, labor, and other ongoing expenses in May will come out of this cash account and also out of cash flow from sales.
Now lets dial in the 12% annual inflation. The purchasing power of the $60,000 balance in that account is declining 1% per month, eating away at it like termites, bit by bit turning last month’s profits into less purchasing power to buy materials and labor for the following month to run the business. The owners will find that over a year the cash account has dwindled even though revenue appears to be as robust as before. What is happening is that input costs the business are rising faster than the output prices and revenues, the prices of plates of food and glasses of wine. Through this insidious process, the business is gradually going cash-flow negative. The restaurant must either lower costs or raise prices, or both, or fail as a business.
At first, to avoid price hikes that will deter customers management may respond to inflation by trying to lower unit costs (cost per plate of food) by substituting cheaper for higher cost ingredients. It’s a gamble that customers are less likely to be deterred by marginally lower quality than marginally higher prices. Portions may also shrink. You will start to notice fewer shrimp in the shrimp egg foo young at your favorite local Chinese take-out joint.

In spite of these cost reductions, eventually your local restaurant is forced to raise prices to cover rising input costs. Unit volumes decrease because customers’ incomes are not rising to cover the added cost of items on the menu. Customers will also notice the cheaper ingredients and the restaurant’s food quality reputation will suffer. Management tries to lower fixed expenses (versus per plate of food unit costs) by reducing staff. Customers experience this as slowness and crankiness among the remaining overburdened wait staff.

If your wait person is cranky and unresponsive, count how many tables they are covering before passing judgment. These days it’s probably too many.

This is how a business goes out of business in an inflationary recession. In an inflationary recession the most profitable operations, if they have maintained a large cash cushion and especially if they hedged inflation in their cash account with sound investments, can survive by letting inflation grind down competing businesses with weaker balance sheets by forcing them to raise prices and reduce product and service quality. By not raising prices and taking the profit hit, the stronger competing company steals the weaker company’s customers. If they have enough cash to keep it up, it’s a matter of time before the stronger business has enough of the weaker business’s customers that the weaker business fails.

Then guess what the surviving company gets to do? That’s right: raise prices. This is part of the dynamic of an inflation cycle.

Inflation: More than high prices

Rising prices is inflation sign #1. But four-dollar gasoline and $25 entrees at a restaurant where they were $15 two years ago is only one sign of inflation. Watch for these as well.

Inflation Sign #2: Smaller sizes, volumes and portions


Food makers are starting to reduce the size of items like candy bars and cutting back on the number of chips in a bag of chips. Expect food that fits into a box or a bag to decline in volume. Notice that bag of corn chips that used to be full is now one quarter empty, that jug of laundry detergent that used to be good for 30 loads will now do 24, and so on.
The way to defend against this form of inflation is to note the per-unit costs at the grocery store versus the per-package price.

Inflation Sign #3: Substitution of lower cost and quality ingredients


This inflation sign is the most subtle of all. Unless you have been going to the same store or restaurant for a long period of time you won’t not notice the change. Using cheap versus expensive tequila in your margarita, for example, or regular antibiotics fed chicken versus organic chicken like it says on the menu.

 
linewaiting

Inflation Sign #4: Poor service due to cutbacks in personnel


Long lines can be a sign of inflation. As businesses cut service staff to reduce personnel costs, waiting times rise. Over time you may notice it takes longer to find someone to help you at the local Home Depot, or you are waiting longer on the phone to speak with technical support, or the experts you talk to turn out to not be so expert as you are put through layers of less expensive and lesser trained personnel before you get to talk to the one high cost expert who actually knows what they are talking about.
You will also notice sales people becoming more assertive. They will try to sell you more expensive products and will try to add on options.

 
servicefees

Inflation Sign #5: Fees, fees, fees


As costs rise, towed behind many once reasonably and simply priced products or services you will find a giant load of new fees. Checked out your bank statement lately? Your cable bill? Your cell phone bill? It pays to look at these carefully every month as most service providers are not required by consumer law to notify you when a new fee is added. You may be surprised to find many fees large and small hitched up to a service that was sold to you at a fair starting price. Look at them now.

Conclusion

Inflation is more than higher prices, it is also a lower quantity and quality of goods and services for the same price, lower quality services, and new fees.

What is causing inflation? The falling dollar. Our the second installment of our Inflation in America series we explain how the weakening dollar is creating cost-push inflation. In our third part of the series we address the question, Will the dollar appreciate and US inflation abate? Only structural change will cause the dollar to strengthen and end the weakening dollar inflation cycle.

Chicago’s Daley Issues Combat Rifles to Beat Cops

April 27, 2008

Kurt Nimmo
Infowars
April 26, 2008

 

It is so transparent as to almost be a joke. “Chicago police officers will be armed with combat rifles to better rival the firepower of street gangs, police Superintendent Jody Weis has announced,” reports the Fort Mill Times. “Weis unveiled the plan to equip and train the department’s 13,500 officers with M4 carbines on Friday.” No word on what version of the M4 Jody Weis will hand out. The M4 is basically an M16. It comes in semi-automatic with a three-round burst and full auto. It is the preferred weapon of the U.S. Army Special Forces and Navy SEALs.

Is there a reason for cops to have such awesome firepower?

“The weapons of criminals are getting bigger and bigger,” averred Chicago mayor Richard Daley, so he gave a nod to issuing the M4s. Interesting because Daley is an avowed opponent of the Second Amendment. But only for the commoners. Cops get military weapons to go along with their black Star Wars storm trooper uniforms.

At a news conference Saturday, Daley said the M4 carbines “will be seldom used” and while he is an advocate of gun control, the decision to equip officers with the rifles was “not difficult.”

No, of course not. Because there are gangsters in the street selling crack provided by the Cocaine Import Agency, also known as the CIA. If the CIA and the bankster money launderers on Wall Street were divested of this immensely profitable business and drug possession was decriminalized, there would be scant few gang bangers running around with micro Uzis.

But never mind. Chicago’s violent streets are a perfect excuse to further militarize the cops. Daley will replace every cop’s handgun with a brand spanking new M4.

The Chicago Tribune reports:

Daley pointed out that the Illinois State Police, Chicago SWAT units and other police departments around the country already carry high-powered assault weapons. He said the weapons will better match the Chicago police officers against criminals with sophisticated weapons, such as high-powered assault rifles.

SWAT units, though, are usually not patrolling the neighborhood.

Soon enough, residents will get accustomed to cops armed to the teeth like Marines in Baghdad. But then that’s the point, to send a message to the civilians: you now live in an authoritarian police state, Officer Friendly is now G.I. Joe. In fact, increasingly, Officer Not So Friendly did five “stop loss” tours in Iraq and is violently insane. Give him an M4 and he will think he’s back in Iraq.

It’s something to think about the next time you are pulled over and the cop comes to your window with an assault weapon. It’s not a good idea to recite the Fourth Amendment to a guy who was indoctrinated by the government in killing people and wrecking things.

Just Who Are the “Illuminati” ?

April 25, 2008

Dear Readers,

My last post generated a lot of response.  Many of you wrote and asked me to clarify what I was implying by posting a picture of Hillary and so many other powerful people flashing the “horned” hand sign.

I admit it is very difficult to wrap your brain around the monstrous conspiracy we are immersed in.  To assert that the Elites who run the world are involved in a Luciferian cult that seeks to undermine the sovereignty of nations and individuals, and has been steadily growing in power and scope….well that is just hard to believe.  I know.  I agree.  And yet it is true.

I sincerely hope that you will go back through previous articles I have posted here on the Illuminati.  I also hope you will do your OWN research.  No one can convince you by force.  You must question, research, and contemplate your own conclusions  So check it out.  It is kind of important.  It affects the state of the economy, of war, of peace, of your life, your family, your children, your children’s children, and so forth.

I have done some of the leg-work for you.  Here is an excellent “Introductory” essay by Richard Stone that really captures the essence of what we are facing.  I hope you will use this article as a starting point for your own research.  Also, be sure to watch the short “YouTube” videos embedded in this essay.  They are very well done and extremely informative.

Yours Faithfully,

Foundingfather1776

 Who Are The Illuminati?

Richard Stone

“A loose affiliation of millionaires and billionaires” (Paul Simon).
“The world is governed by far different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes” (Benjamin Disraeli).

“Give me control over a nation’s currency, and I care not who makes the laws”

(Mayer Rothschild).
Conspiracy theory is the theory that most of the world is secretly governed by a small group of men who operate behind the scenes. Conspiracy theory is now an accepted turn of phrase but sometimes one hears the expression, sometimes whispered rather than spoken. “The Illuminati”.

What does this mean? Who are the Illuminati? They are, in essence, a cartel of international bankers and industrialists based in Western Europe and North America. The names of certain families persist over long periods of time. Some of the most important names are Rothschild, Rockefeller, Morgan, Lazard, Warburg, Schroder and Schiff.

The pivotal family is probably the house of Rothschild, the descendants of Mayer Rothschild (1743 – 1812) of Frankfurt. The male descendants of this family, for at least two generations, generally married first cousins or even nieces. The family established banking institutions in Vienna, London, Naples and Paris as well as Frankfurt. Ever since the middle ages, these families have been building their power by lending money at rates of interest to the monarchies and governments of Europe who were forever in debt, particularly in times of war. Sooner than tax the population to raise funds, always an unpopular measure, they usually preferred to borrow money from the money-lenders. This was the birth of the concept “the national debt.” The countries of the world are forever in debt but where there is a debtor there is a creditor – who is this money owed to? It is owed to this coterie of international bankers.

By the nineteenth century the power of the Rothschild family was immense. They increased their wealth with great cunning and cleverness, while maintaining a low public profile. A notable example of their methods was their exploitation of the battle of Waterloo. The Rothschilds had spies watching the course of the battle and as soon as became evident that Wellington had won, a Rothschild agent traveled at maximum speed to London, arriving hours before Wellington’s own messenger. Rothschild received the messenger and began conspicuously selling his stocks. The whole stock exchange assumed that Wellington had lost and Napoleon had won so everybody started selling, at this point, other Rothschild agents bought up huge stocks at give-away prices. Thus an already massive fortune was massively increased.

The Rockefeller family may be equally important. The pivotal figure in this family was J.D.Rockefeller, who made his fortune out of Standard Oil or Esso in Ohio and Pennsylvania. He also controlled the railroads. When rival road transport systems were established he attempted to block them by parking his trains across the roads at level crossings. His basic business technique was the elimination of competitors at all costs, followed by the establishment of a monopoly, followed by profit taking. He rapidly gained a name for huge wealth, secrecy and hard and dirty business practice. In his later years he had a harsh and gaunt appearance, so to counter his bad “public image” JD more or less invented the PR industry. He had short films of himself made, calculated to charm the public, himself playing golf with a pretty little child for instance. This film was shown on TV recently. It has a rather false and amateurish air but was very effective with the public of the day.

The Rockerfellers currently have controlling interests in Exxon (the world’s biggest company) and the Chase Manhattan Bank, which turns over trillions of dollars a week. With so many billions in their hands already, what does more money mean? Obviously it means more power and more control over other human beings, but to what end and in whose name?

Apparently in the name of Lucifer, the fallen angel also known as the bringer of light, hence the name “Illuminati”, which means “the enlightened ones”. Lucifer is also known for the characteristics of pride, deception and impermanence. The illuminati were apparently founded in Bavaria in 1770 by one Adam Weisshaupt, a student of the Jewish philosopher Mendelsohn, and backed by the Rothschild family. The society has always been based on the lodges of Freemasonry, which was taken over at the highest levels during the course of the eighteenth century by agents of the Illuminati. Freemasonry is a very secretive institution, to the extent that members at one level do not know what members at another level are doing. Hence it is an organisation which is full of bonhomie and good deeds at the lower and middle levels, while its motives and deeds at the highest levels veer towards the dark side.

Both Freemasonry and Judaism have strong roots in the ancient Egyptian systems of religious belief, and it was this very similarity which attracted the illuminati to Freemasonry, for most of them were Jewish. It is a source of controversy today to speculate whether or not they are still predominantly Jewish. No unfair racism intended – they either are or they aren’t. Certainly there is much evidence to suggest that they are not, George Bush for instance, a prominent illuminati figure and obviously not Jewish.


 

The United States of America is more or less a creation of Freemasonry. The symbol of Freemasonry was placed on the cornerstone of the Whitehouse, while the assembled Freemasons lodges stood and watched the ceremony. The famous all-seeing eye in the pyramid appears on the one dollar bill. It is one of the main symbols of Freemasonry. This bill also bears the inscription, in Latin, “1776, the year of inception of a new world order”. If one joins the dots formed by the stars of the thirteen original states one obtains an exact Star of David.
The goal of the IlIuminati is total control of the world. The only nations, which are holding out against their power, are some Islamic nations and China but this resistance is limited because the Illuminati have crushing economic power.

There are certain methods of subjugation and control which are indispensable to this power. The first is, of course, complete control over all financial systems, all borrowing and lending. All banks, all building societies, all insurance companies have to be under their control. At the lowest level even the smallest bank will be forced to toe the line. At the highest level the World Bank decides the fate of countries. It is an interesting and amazing fact that both the Federal Reserve Bank and the Bank of England are controlled by these Illuminati dynasties, in spite of the names of these banks, which suggest that they are run for public benefit. It is said that both Abraham Lincoln and John Kennedy wanted to change this system.

The second essential component is control of the media. It is controlled through business fashion. If the board meeting, or the management meeting, or the sales meeting, or the training meeting suggests that facts should be presented in a certain way, who is going to present them differently? There is an implied threat to one’s job and one’s career. Few people would gladly face demotion, retrenchment or the dole and most people are so ambitious they will do nearly anything “reasonable” to court favour with their superiors. This is how business is controlled and the media is the most important part of business, for it controls people’s minds. People are very suggestible and often lend more credence to what they see on “the box” than to what happens on their own street. The Illuminati know this and use this suggestibility factor to the full. Lenin’s key move during the Russian revolution was the capture of the radio station.

The third factor in the control system is the universities, and through them the whole education system. Particular effort is put into the schools of sociology, politics, economics and education, hence “liberal” systems of education which are often degenerate and even violent. Their men are inserted into the universities through the power of funding by big business. They then spread their influence downwards through tertiary to secondary and primary education.

The fourth factor is the enormous influence wielded by two similar organisations, The Council of Foreign Relations in the USA and the Royal Institute of International Affairs in England. These institutions are schools for statesmen, Illuminati statesmen. They are the stamping grounds of men such as Henry Kissinger, Zbigniew Brzezinksi and Lord Carrington. These two “think tanks” have a crucial influence on all US and British governments, no matter which party is “in power”. The statesmen produced by these institutions can and do decide the fate of nations.The tax-exempt foundations are also instruments of Illuminati power. The Ford foundation and the Rockefeller foundation are two prominent examples of this type of “charitable” institution. They were heavily involved in supporting various communist powers when the cold war was at its height. Communism versus capitalism arms race = more money and power for the Illuminati. So these are some of the structures through which the Illuminati work but what methods do they use?

Pitting one side against the other, using a theory devised by Hegel, which is: Thesis versus antitheses – synthesis.

Every force tends to have an opposite counterforce. The conflict between the two results in a new situation, the synthesis. The illuminati make it their business to be the synthesis. Thus no problem situation is ever “nipped in the bud” it is rather fostered and used, just as the Soviet Union was fostered and used.

The insertion of immigrant groups into countries is a variation of this divide and rule process. Each group can be played off against the other.

“Double talk” and “double think”. George Orwell knew instinctively what was going on when he invented these two expressions:
I categorically deny = it will happen a bit later.
Peace = war by another means.

To say one thing and do another is fundamental to Illuminati practice. They believe that the public will accept these lies through laziness and wishful thinking. Unfortunately they are usually correct.

“Keep them busy busy busy, back on the farm with the other animals.” We are kept so busy with business (or busyness) that we do not understand or participate in the decisions and events that will crucially affect our future.

When a real power move is made it is usually done secretly and suddenly often with the pretence that nothing has happened. There is preparation for opposition, but conflict is often not necessary as most people have been trained to be so passive that they will probably not create an effective opposition.

Use of front men in important positions. These front men have the characteristic of “servile obedience”, probably because of a blot or blots on their character which they are anxious to conceal. Most of the Presidents of the USA fall into this category. The current situation springs to mind. Behind the opponent stands the man with real power, who has long been groomed for this position. Men like Henry Kissinger, Zbigniew Brzezinski and George Bush are in this category.

The assassination of opposing leaders as quietly and as secretly as possible, so as to simulate a natural death. If this is not possible due to time constraints or other limited circumstances, surrogates are used and the lines of suspicion are covered by deception, false accusation and if necessary, multiple assassinations. Induced heart attacks, fake motor accidents and apparent suicides are also favoured methods of assassination.

Social engineering. An easily manipulated rabble is what is required. Mixed population groups with weak morals, weak traditions, low educational standards and weak group willpower are the aim. Those with special aptitudes can be taken out and trained to serve the illuminati for technical purposes, security purposes or as part of the propaganda apparatus. The middle class will become surplus to requirements and will be reduced to relative poverty.

Mockery and submission of the manners and morals of societies which show any resistance. Control of the media, the fashion industries and the education systems are essential components in this strategy. “Free love”, the cult of youth, mockery of the Christian and Muslim faiths also fall into this category. “I don’t give a rats ass about Jesus Christ” is one recent masterpiece from one of Hollywood’s biggest starts. He probably didn’t realise what he was saying, which makes him a “useful idiot’. A “useful idiot” is much more effective than a conscious supporter. By these means of subversion societies and nations are conquered from within and open battle is usually not necessary.

The conduct of unrelenting economic warfare. This is the real war and continues even while the bombs are falling and the bullets are flying. The important part is the control of the enemy’s economy after the conflict. The recent economic crash in the far-eastern countries is in reality an assertion of the Illuminati’s economic power, an expression of economic dominance. The Illuminati now control 10-15% of the Japanese economy. This is public knowledge, that is what has been bought at bargain prices. In reality they probably control much more.

Control and exploitation of the standards of public health. The sale of prescription drugs is a huge business generating mega profits. Medical operations and treatments can also be very profitable to big business. These extreme treatments have their place but are over-used for the sake of profit.

In fact big business, particularly the big drug companies, have a vested interest in the ill health of the population. These companies, working through the US Food and Drug Administration, have tried to suppress the health food industry. In this they have largely failed but now the game is to own it and control it so that health foods can only be afforded by the elite.

Argument through defamation of character. The factual debate is ignored while characters are defamed. This is usually a very effective technique as many human beings are very suggestible and seem reluctant to use their reasoning abilities. Thus a “smear campaign” can easily draw attention away from the facts.

To conclude, it is growing increasingly evident that a world government is developing, and many would say that it is probably no bad thing, but few have asked for what purpose this “new world order” is created. Nor have they asked themselves what the consequences will be. These consequences (or some of them) will probably be as follows:

• Increasing profits for big business, increasing poverty for the middle class (who they despise). A rapid decline in moral standards and the promotion of social decay.

• Transience. Jobs that don’t last; neighbourhoods that don’t last.

• Increasing levels of crime and violence.

• Decline and demise of public services; replacement by private enterprise – good service for the few who can afford it.

• Ongoing ill health for the bulk of the population because of stress; poor quality foods; food additives; genetic engineering; pollution and drugs. There may be good health for those who can afford it – only the rich and well informed.

• The gradual phasing out of national governments, which will have powers more like the regional governments of today.

• The formation of several conglomerations like the United States.

In time a world leader will be announced, a real one this time. A pity he will have a cynical contempt for the most of humanity. Do we deserve it?

 

 

 

 

EYES WIDE SHUT – The Illuminati in your Face!

April 23, 2008

Dear Readers,

The above picture of Hillary was snagged from the “Drudgereport” this morning 4/22/08.  The much anticipated Pennsylvania Primary was held today.  As we now know, Hillary won.  As I knew this morning, Hillary *would* win.

How did I know this?  Was it the incredibly idiotic elitist remark uttered by Obama that “bitter” people “cling to guns and religion” as compensation for their lot in life?  Well that didn’t help his case, but nooooo that was not why I knew Hillary would “win” PA.

Was it my careful analysis of the polls, the press or the populace?  No.  Since I realize that this election is no more than bad theatre, parading before us the illusion of choice, I have not followed any of those indicators.  Indeed, I have spent more time contemplating which tasty beverage my local bartender would pour than whether the CFR/Illuminati/Scumbag Hillary or the CFR/Illuminati/Scumbag Obama would win the right to face off over that insane, angry CFR/Illuminati/Scumbag John McCain in the fall.

But I KNEW Hillary would “win” when I saw the above picture this morning.  There it was, unmistakable, blatant, bold and in your face!  The “Horned Hand” sign, also known as the “Mano Cornuto.”  This gesture is a sign of recognition between and allegiance of members of an unholy alliance. 

Or maybe Hillary is a University of Texas fan and is flashing the “Hook ‘em Horns” sign??

Our beloved Presidente of course likes to remind us how he is a Texan, no matter that he was born in New Haven CT and educated at Phillips Academy in MA and attended Yale.  No.  He is a TEXAN.  And he loves to flash the “Hook ‘em Horns” sign wherever he goes…..by golly, even if he is with the Queen of England, he can’t resist a little flash of the sign:

Yes, Georgie Boy has got to flash that sign wherever he can!

Like when he gives a speech:

Or at his innaugaration:

But do you know who else are big “Hook ‘em Horns” University of Texas Fans?

Well…the Italian Prime Minister:

And the President of France:

Also King Abdullah and “Pootie Pute” from Russia are fans!

Dick Cheney is from Wyoming, but what the heck, he is a “fan” too!

Anyone remember Dan Qualye?  Turns out he was a big fan as well…..

And who would have guessed that the CEO’s of the global powerhouse known as “McDonald’s” are also fans?

OF COURSE the Rock band “Forsaken” is a big big fan!

And so are Courtney Love and her Daughter:

And we all known that Ozzy Ozbourne is a HUGE University of Texas Fan!!  He went so far as to incorporate that cute little “Hook ‘em Horns” sign into an Ozzfest poster!

I could go on and on with many more pictures of the loyal University of Texas fan base.  It is quite a diverse group.  Rulers of “free” countries, Kings, Prime Ministers, CEO’s, “Vice” Presidents (get the pun?) and of course Black Sabbath Band Members and doped-out degenerates.   All seemingly compelled to flash their loyalty to a College football Team in Texas no matter what the occasion!

Of course, there are some crazy tinfoil-hat wearing whacko’s that believe this sign has nothing to do with the University of Texas…at least not in these contexts.

These poor misguided dupes believe that just because nearly all these people belong to the “Council on Foreign Relations” (Ozzie and Courtney were probably booted from the club after too many embarrasing mishaps at the conventions), and just because they are in positions of great power and wealth, and just because the Council of Foreign Relations is wholly owned and operated by the Illuminati, that there is some crazy conspiracy to control the world and fool the people in it.

They make too much out of the bizarre logo of the Council on Foreign Relations:

In this famous painting set in Egypt, the conqueror Napoleon, a Freemason and Illuminist, gives the Sign of Admiration of the sixth degree of the Masonic Lodge. Bottom: The official logo of the Council on Foreign Relations pictures a wild, naked man on a white horse flashing the 6-6-6 occult salute of the sixth degree of Freemasonry.

They try and tie it to the occult membership these people participate in.  They write crazy stuff like this:

People listen to those who continually cry, as they did in Spain, “Communism can never cause a revolution here.”  They listen to those who give them a sense of false security.  The majority of citizens are like children, who hide their heads under the blankets when they fear danger.  It should be remembered that pulling the bedclothes over one’s head never saved a person from an assassin, a rapist, or an exploding bomb. (SOURCE: PAWNS IN THE GAME, page 128, by William Guy Carr, 1958).
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

I couldn’t have described Americans today any better!  They are only listening to those who give them a sense of FALSE SECURITY!  They are hiding their heads under their blankets.  Please read, It Can’t Happen Here by Congressman Ron Paul.  These quotes from PAWNS IN THE GAME (and I highly recommend the book) should clearly evidence to you that history does repeat itself, or in other terms, people never learn!

The following quote is from page IX in the introduction concerning the International Conspiracy:

Very few people seem to appreciate that Lucifer is the brightest and most intelligent of the heavenly host and, because he is a pure spirit, he is indestructible.  The Scriptures tell us his power is such that he caused one-third of the most intelligent of the heavenly host to defect from God, and join him, because he claimed God’s Plan for the rule of the universe is weak and impractical because it is based on the premise that lesser beings can be taught to know, love, and wish to serve Him voluntarily out of respect for His own infinite perfections.  The Luciferian ideology states might is right.  It claims beings of proven superior intelligence have the right to rule those less gifted because the masses don’t know what is best for them.  The Luciferian ideology is what we call totalitarianism to-day.

The Old Testament is simply the history of how Satan became prince of the world, and caused our first parents to defect from God.  It relates how the synagogue of Satan was established on this earth, it tells how it has worked since to prevent God’s Plan for the rule of the universe being established on this earth.  Christ came to earth when the conspiracy reached the stage that, to use His own Words, Satan controlled all those in high places.  He exposed the synagogue of Satan (Rev. 2:9;3:9); he denounced those who belonged to it as sons of the Devil (Lucifer), whom He castigated as the father of lies (John 8:44) and the prince of deceit (2nd Cor. 11:14).  He was specific in His statement that those who comprised the synagogue of Satan were those who called themselves Jews, but were not, and did lie (Rev. 2:9; 3:9).  He identified the Money-Changers (Bankers), the Scribes, and the Pharisees as the Illuminati of His day.

Page X brings the conspiracy up to date:

In 1774 “An Act of God” placed the Bavarian government in possession of evidence which proved the existence of the continuing Luciferian conspiracy.  Adam Weishaupt, a Jesuit trained professor of canon law, defected from Christianity, and embraced the Luciferian ideology while teaching in Ingoldstadt University.  In 1770 the money lenders (who had recently organized the House of Rothschild), retrained him to revise and modernize the age-old ‘protocols’ designed to give the synagogue of Satan ultimate world domination so they can impose Luciferian ideology upon what remains of the Human Race, after the final social cataclysm, by use of Satanic despotism.  Weishaupt completed his task May 1st, 1776.

The plan required the destruction of ALL existing governments and religions.  This objective was to be reached by dividing the masses, whom he termed Goyim (meaning human cattle) into opposing camps

America has been hijacked by criminals, i.e., the illuminati.   The truth is that our political leaders are PAWNS in a global game, controlled by murderous and sinister thugs who manipulate this world’s wealth and resources.  Our political leaders are mere puppets to the puppeteers, and we are the gullible sheep.

Whew!  What a whacko right?  I mean, the Govt. loves us!  Our leaders are noble and honest and good.  The American People call the shots!  “Conspiracies” are for crazy people.

Also, the Govt. is telling the truth about 9/11, the war in Iraq is needed and is achieving a lot, the economy is good, housing only ever goes up, the dollar is strong, mercury in vaccines has nothing to do with autism, fluoride is good for you, aspartame is safe, Oswald was the lone assasin that killed Kennedy, the Federal Reserve is not private nor is it run for profit, gold and silver are bad horrible investments you should stay far away from, debt is good (it helps you build wealth!), guns are bad – only the govt. and police should be allowed to have them, the mass media is independent and only wants to bring the people the truth of what is *really* going on, your vote counts, Hillary dodged sniper fire, McCain is not insane, Obama will bring “change,” home schoolers are cult members that raise socially retarded children, ritalin is good for kids, and adults should take tranquilizers and anti-depressants, big pharma has *your* best interests at heart and the FDA will protect you from any bad drugs or food additives because they have *your* best interests at heart and are completely independent from politics or lobbyists, global warming is real and caused by humans, genetically modified food is healthy and good for you and has been extensively tested, the price of gasoline is not manipulated and the current world-wide food shortages are not engineered and manipulated…..all will be well……what’s on TV?

Quotable Quotes

April 18, 2008

“It is well enough that the people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system for, if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.” Henry Ford

“Capital must protect itself in every possible manner by combination and legislation. Debts must be collected, bonds and mortgages must be foreclosed as rapidly as possible. When, through a process of law, the common people lose their homes they will become more docile and more easily governed through the influence of the strong arm of government, applied by a central power of wealth under control of leading financiers. This truth is well known among our principal men now engaged in forming an imperialism of Capital to govern the world. By dividing the voters through the political party system, we can get them to expend their energies in fighting over questions of no importance. Thus by discreet action we can secure for ourselves what has been so well planned and so successfully accomplished.” USA Banker’s Magazine, August 25 1924

“Allow me to control the issue and the nation’s money and I care not who makes its laws!” — Amshell Rothschild

Banks that hold the controlling stock in the Federal Reserve Corporation:
  Rothschild Banks of London and Berlin, Lazard Brothers Bank of Paris, Israel Moses Sieff Banks of Italy
Warburg Bank of Hamburg and Amsterdam, Lehman Brothers Bank of New York, Kuhn Loeb Bank of New York

“Money is the most important subject intellectual persons can investigate and reflect upon. It is so important that our present civilization may collapse unless it is widely understood and its defects remedied very soon.” –Robert H. Hemphill, former credit manager, Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta

“You have to choose [as a voter] between trusting to the natural stability of gold and the natural stability of the honesty and intelligence of the members of the Government. And, with due respect for these gentlemen, I advise you, as long as the Capitalist system lasts, to vote for gold.” George Bernard Shaw

What luck for rulers that men do not thinkAdolf Hitler

“Lenin is certainly right. There is no subtler or more severe means of overturning the existing basis of society (destroy capitalism) than to debauch the currency. The process engages all the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and it does it in a manner which not one man in a million is able to diagnose.”John Marnard Keynes, The Economic Consequences of the Peace.

“Military men are just dumb stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy.”
Henry Kissinger, quoted in “Kiss the Boys Goodbye: How the United States Betrayed Its Own POW’s in Vietnam”

“When fascism comes to America it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying the cross.” – Sinclair Lewis

The consolidation of the States into one vast empire, sure to be aggressive abroad and despotic at home, will be the certain precursor of ruin which has overwhelmed all that preceded it. - General Robert E. Lee
