The global elite have, over the centuries, refined the techniques they employ to assure continued dominion over the resources of the planet. In the early days they simply crucified certain rebellious citizens, whilst sprinkling in the occasional peasant massacre to ensure a climate of fear and to thwart any challenge to their hegemony.
When this overtly bloody strategy provoked revolution in such disparate locales as France, America and Russia; and later Cuba, the Congo and Vietnam, the bloodline oligarchs shifted to a strategy of covert assassination and counter-revolutionary intrigues. But brutality is brutality, however subtle and disguised it may be.
So when this strategy failed to stem the tide of history, while provoking a democratic and thus subversive reaction amongst the populace, the international banking syndicate and its coterie of idle rich turned to psychological warfare. They learned that it is much easier to control a population through brainwashing than it is to mow down a more cognizant citizenry in the streets and risk backlash. The key, they learned, was to keep people docile, fearful and ignorant. Continue reading
With the fabricated “fiscal cliff” rapidly approaching, Republicans in Congress – sworn to Grover Norquist and his Illuminati bankster handlers alike - are still playing games. These boot lickers can’t stand the thought of the elite paying their fair share of taxes, despite the fact that these idle rich have fed at the public trough since its inception.
The Republican solution will again be a bill targeting the poor and middle class for yet more austerity measures - the sole purpose of the “fiscal cliff” puppet show. Should Democrats stick to their current and most welcome fighting mood, sequestration will occur and the government will shut down. OK by me.
Americans have no one to blame but themselves for this fiasco. While the idiocracy this country is fast becoming piles the blame on Congress, they seem to forget that it was they who voted for this current batch of ignorant banker shills whose IMF-sanctioned mission is to destroy every vestige of government for the people and replace it will with rule by oligarchy.

In July 2010 those poor billionaire chaps at the bloodsucking firm otherwise known as Goldman Sachs, admitted no fraud and got slapped with a $550 million fine by the SEC. Should have been ten times the money and jail time, but hey, these same guys stiffed us for a trillion in the “banker bailout” two years ago, so who’s counting.
The first $250 million went to Royal Bank of Scotland and the German bank IKB Deutsche Industriebank AG. The other $300 million will go to the US Treasury. Seems fair that some banksters should get half, don’t you think? Glass half full: Any time you deal with a banker and come out with more than half, well hell, you did alright. Continue reading
Last column I asserted that the global Money Power controls people nowadays through psychological warfare. Put simply, they lie to people. As long as enough “sheeple” believe the lie, they can then be counted on to police the thoughts of any dissenters. This is a much easier control mechanism than the open violence that had marked the Money Power’s rule from the Dark Ages up until quite recently.
Last column I pinpointed one of their biggest lies: the might is right dominance paradigm, which portrays nature as a violent and dangerous place, a dog eat dog world where capitalism, colonialism, warfare and even slavery are “necessary evils”. This despite 100,000 years of relatively peaceful human existence which proves otherwise. Continue reading
A few columns back I discussed the historical transition of the methodology employed by the global elite in their never-ending quest to control the people and resources of planet earth. Paramount is a shift from open confrontation with and violent suppression of liberation movements, to a more subtle form of psychological warfare waged via control and distortion of information, resulting in a misinformed, fearful and docile populace.
This battle for our minds takes many forms, but begins by inserting key philosophical premises into the public consensus. One of the most insidious of these is a neo-Darwinian worldview, which preaches “survival of the fittest” and reinforces the dominance paradigm. This fraudulent philosophical underpinning, which has become a sort of global religious cult, is used to justify all kinds of historical and present-day injustice and exploitation and needs to be deconstructed and discredited if we are to progress as a species.
Darwin’s expedition was funded by European nobility and he was himself a Freemason. Despite this elite bias, Darwin’s research led him to one very important conclusion, and it was not the “survival of the fittest” mantra which the global elite has since employed to justify everything from colonialism and slavery to private central banking and monopoly capitalism. Rather, Darwin’s central thesis was that the survival of a species was dependent on a high degree of cooperation within that species. Continue reading
As Obama prepares for a 2nd term, there are signs that a Cabinet housecleaning may be underway. The controversies around CIA Director Petraeus and General Allen, and talk that Hillary Clinton will no longer be Secretary of State bode well for a less hawkish foreign policy.
But the people’s revolution to overthrow the parasitic Money Power has just begun. The 2008 Wall Street bailout further concentrated power in the hands of what I term in my book Big Oil & Their Bankers…, the Four Horsemen of US banking – JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup, Wells Fargo and Bank of America. As I write this, President-elect Obama is being swarmed by Illuminati operatives who will try to control the direction he moves this country. Continue reading

It is now a certainty that Goldman Sachs banker Rajiv Gupta with be the first banker to serve prison time. Gupta helped the Wall Street behemoth handpick the most toxic US mortgages, before they sold them to third parties knowing that the housing market was about to crash. The charges state that both Gupta and Goldman misled not only the mostly European banks who bought these morgage-backed securities derivatives, but their own investor clients as well. But anyone who knows a thing or two about the history of Goldman Sachs should not be surprised.
For over a century Goldman Sachs has joined the Houses of Morgan, Rockefeller, Rothschild, Warburg and Lazard in lording over the US industrial base, profiting from boom and depression alike. In July 1929 Goldman launched the Shenandoah and Blue Ridge investment trusts, at a time when the burgeoning middle classes were eager to hop on the Wall Street easy money bandwagon. The Goldman Sachs Trading Corporation sold hundreds of millions of dollars worth of shares to public. They peaked at $104. All the while Goldman insiders were selling. By the fall of 1934 the shares were worth $1.75/each. One of the directors at both Shenandoah and Blue Ridge was Rockefeller cousin and later Secretary of State John Foster Dulles. Continue reading
Yesterday British Petroleum agreed to pay $4.5 billion in fines and other payments to the US government, while pleading guilty to 14 criminal charges connected to the April 2010 disaster which resulted in nearly 5 million barrels of crude being spilled into the Gulf of Mexico. Eleven workers were killed aboard the Deepwater Horizon rig. The fine is the biggest single criminal fine in corporate history.
Weeks after the calamity, the British Establishment was still lecturing Americans on the perils of blasphemy in the colonies. Lord Norman Tebbit, former Thatcher Employment Secretary, had the temerity to accuse President Obama of “a crude, bigoted, xenophobic display of partisan political presidential petulance against a multinational company”. Sounds like the pot calling the kettle black.
Daily Mail columnist Geoffrey Wheatcroft accused our seditious president of “hypocritical as well as demagogic” criticism of BP. Wheatcroft then went on to recount a pattern of disrespect that the US has shown the British dating to 1812. Disrespect? I guess Mr. Wheatcroft isn’t content with the “special relationship” that calls for US soldiers to die and US taxpayers to get soaked, whilst Royal Dutch/Shell gets the first Iraqi oil contract and British Petroleum the second.

Most of the script for this show is read verbatim from my book Big Oil & Their Bankers…
I’ve backpacked my way through 50 countries on 6 continents over the past 20 years - many of them on numerous occasions - all the while bearing witness to the carnage that is US foreign policy. I chronicle this odyssey in my book The Grateful Unrich: Revolution in 50 Countries. Despite it all, never have I seen an American President been so beloved abroad as Barrack Obama.
A big part of this sentiment is tied to the good riddance of Bush the Lesser, who was considered a laughingstock, a Nazi or both in most quarters. What really rubbed people wrong was that we re-elected him. How stupid could we be? Fair question.
Another part of it is that Obama simply looks more like the rest of the world that any US President ever has. And despite his mistakes he is capable of humility – a highly undervalued virtue in the “exceptional” America, but one which indigenous cultures have traditionally held in high regard.

Afghan President Hamid Karzai has good reasons for trying to shut down US investigations into corruption in his government. The Afghan aristocracy has always run the nation’s heroin trade. But it was the CIA that created it.
(What follows is excerpted from Chapter 8: Project Frankenstein: Afghanistan: Big Oil & Their Bankers…)
In 1933 King Mohammed Zaher Shah took the throne in Afghanistan, ruling the country in feudalistic fashion until he was deposed by his cousin Mohammed Daoud in 1973. A handful of families including the Karzais and the Kalilzidads (Zalmay Kalilzidad is US Ambassador to Afghanistan) owned nearly all arable land, while most Afghans languished amidst some of the planet’s worst poverty. Finally, they’d had enough. Continue reading
Anyone familiar with Iraq’s historical defiance of the Rockefeller/Rothschild Oil Cartel would not have been surprised at the ferocity of Iraqi insurgents battling US occupation forces. Their frequent offensives were just the latest in a century-long history of attempts by Iraqis to free their country from the talons of the international bankers.
(What follows is excerpted from my book Big Oil & Their Bankers…: Chapter 12: The Gulf Oil War)
In 1776 the British East India Company set up headquarters at what is now Kuwait. When Kuwaiti members of the al-Sabah clan helped Ottoman Turks quell uprisings in southern Iraq, the Shiek of the Muntafiq tribe gave the al-Sabahs date groves near Fao and Sufiyeh in southern Iraq. Continue reading
I’ve seen more than a few bizarre US election campaigns in my life. In 2004 when Barrack Obama won his Illinois US Senate seat, I won the Democratic primary for Congress across the big muddy river in Missouri’s 8th District. I lost the general election to Republican Jo Ann Emerson’s Corporate PAC-Money Machine- she raised $1 million to my $17,000. Refusing to accept corporate money, I never had a chance, but we stirred it up and built a more progressive Democratic Party in the 8th that still exists today.
The main event featured Bush the Draft Dodger vs. Kerry the Vietnam Vet. The Fox News “yellow ribbon on their minivan” crowd predictably picked the coward. Their beloved smirker loved to talk tough, so long as other people fought his wars. He was just like them. Yellow was a good choice of colors. Continue reading
On June 24, 2010 Australian Labor Party Prime Minister Kevin Rudd was forced to suddenly step down. Rudd’s undoing came after weeks of ads run by multinational mining giants Rio Tinto and BHP Billiton convinced voters that a 40% tax Rudd has proposed on mining companies is a bad idea. God forbid the Australian public gets a little something for their minerals. Continue reading
Since America’s inception there has been a lingering notion that European Illuminati bankers seek to bring America to its knees and return it to the fold of the Crown of England, which centuries ago became the key political vassal for the Eight Families who own majority stock in every private central bank in the world- Rothschild, Rockefeller, Kuhn Loeb, Lehman, Goldman Sachs, Warburg, Lazard and Israel Moses Seif .
Many US Presidents warned of the intrigues of the cabal, including George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, John Quincy Adams; and later Andrew Jackson, Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy. The latter two were assassinated for trying to nationalize the Federal Reserve via the issuance of Treasury Department-backed (publicly-issued) currency. As cited in my Big Oil & Their Bankers… book and by others, the Eight Families own 52% of the New York Federal Reserve Bank, far and away the most powerful Fed Bank. Their ownership is disguised under names like JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley. Continue reading
