Although I am admittedly a high school dropout, and/or, ..an undocumented academic, ..somewhere between “K” ..and the 11th grade I did learn to read, write and understand the English language.
Accordingly, (it is my humble opinion) ..that Barack Obama has either never read the U.S. Constitution, ..or he has read it, ..and is blatantly opposed to its content?
The U.S. Constitution, (is) for want of a better definition, the law of the land, ..with the land, (and/or the Nation) referring to the “United States of America.”
America has many laws, some quite simple, ..with others complicated beyond the imagination.
The Constitution, (at least in my opinion,) was primarily composed to both guide and protect the citizens of America.
The preamble as example;…
“We the People” of the United States, in Order “to form a more perfect Union,” – “establish Justice,” – “insure domestic Tranquility,” – “provide for the common defence,” – “promote the general Welfare,” – and, “secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity,” – do, “ordain and establish,” this Constitution for the United States of America.”
(We the people) of course, ..is a no-brainer, ..the founders were referring to themselves as well as every man woman and child in the nation.
“To form a more perfect union?”
What were the founding fathers thinking when they placed, ..and/or, ..composed those “particular words,” ..in that “particular order?”
What is a union? ..perfect, ..or otherwise?
According to Webster: un·ion, (in context) 1a. The act of uniting or the state of being united. b. A combination so formed, especially an alliance or confederation of people, parties, or political entities for mutual interest or benefit.
Accordingly, alluding to Webster’s definition of a “union,” combined with fifty odd years of active involvement and/or, observance, (it is my considered opinion) that our founding fathers chose the word (union) in “our” preamble to define a mutually acceptable relationship between America’s citizens and (their) government.
There are an abundance, ..and/or, ..many, many words in our Constitution, (all), ..”at least in my opinion,” ..used to guarantee our “inalienable” rights…
According to Webster: in·al·ien·a·ble, That cannot be transferred to another or others: inalienable rights. —
..all important, ..albeit some in the venue of personal rights, ..more important than others!
As exampled in our First Amendment; “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
The Second Amendment; “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
Both, of course, extremely important amendments, ..albeit when it comes to the well-being, ..and longevity of America as a sovereign nation, “we the people,” currently face a more immediate threat.
Ben Bernanke – Public Enemy Number One
Article I, Section 8, Clause 5, of the United States Constitution provides that Congress shall have the power to coin money and regulate the value thereof and of any foreign coins.
Albeit, ..sadly, ..that is no longer the case.
The United States government no longer has the power to issue money, control the flow of money, or to even distribute it – that (authority) now belongs to a private corporation registered in the State of Delaware – the Federal Reserve Bank.
The Federal Reserve System was established by President Woodrow Wilson in 1913. The premise used by President Wilson and his financial advisors for the establishment of the Federal Reserve System was to..
“Supplant the (dictatorship) of the private banking institutions..
..to (stabilize the inflexibility) ..of our national bank note supplies”.
The previous system of banking was “feudal” in nature,..
According to Webster: feu·dal, Relating to, or characteristic of feudalism.
According to Webster: feu·dal·ism, A political and economic system of Europe from the 9th to about the 15th century, based on the holding of all land in fief or fee and the resulting relation of lord to vassal and characterized by homage, legal and military service of tenants, and forfeiture.
..in which private bankers control communities and could issue their own bank notes. They had little regulations concerning reserve assets and loan policies. Banking was a patch-quilt of institutions scattered across the face of the nation with no central policy.
Accordingly, President Woodrow Wilson sold the idea to the nation that the only way to keep bankers from breaking the law, ..was for (him) and the (Congress) to break the law.
Question: Was that a good idea?
Answer: No way in Hell!
THE FEDERAL RESERVE BANKS CONTROL
THE CREATION AND DISTRIBUTION OF
“OUR” MONEY, ..NOT “WE THE PEOPLE”
..and/or “OUR” GOVERNMENT.
The monetary policy of the United States is currently the domain of the Federal Resene Bank and not the U.S. Government. This process is in direct contradiction of the U.S. Constitution that reposes the responsibility of the monetary system with the Congress of the United States.
On April 27, 1936, hearings were held by the House Committee on Banking and Currency.
The preamble of the bill – HR 9216 of the Seventy-fourth Congress, states, “The committee had under consideration the bill (HR 9216) to restore to Congress its constitutional power to issue money and regulate the value thereof; to provide monetary income to the people of the United States at a fixed and equitable purchasing power of the dollar, ample at all times to enable the people to buy wanted goods and services at full capacity of the industries and commercial facilities of the United States; to abolish the practice of creating bank deposits by private groups upon fractional reserves, and for other purposes.”
The Congress declared, “Whereas the permanent welfare of the people and the protection of the economic life of the Nation are dependent on the establishment of a monetary system wholly subject to the control of Congress that will promote the interests of agriculture and labor, of industry, trade, commerce, and finance for the economic well being of all citizens by the maintenance of an adequate supply of money with a unit of fixed average purchasing power, which will avoid excessive expansion or disastrous contraction.”
That preamble led to the body of the text. “Section 1. That it is hereby declared to be the policy of Congress to provide such issuances of certificates of national credit as shall be requisite so to increase the purchasing power of the consumers of the United States as to make it conform to the capacity of the industries and people of the United States for the production and delivery of wanted goods and services, which capacity be declared to be the measure of national credit.”
The Congress attempted to issue non-interest bearing Treasury Notes. A Federal Credit Commission linked to the Secretary of the Treasluy was the goal of Congress.
The Commission was to consist of seven commissioners appointed by the President with approval of the U.S. Senate. U.S. citizenship was a prime requirement and they could not have more than four from one political party. It was also made unlawful for anyone to interfere with the commission.
The concern of Congress was that banks were issuing loans without the backing of real deposits and that it was controlling money based on the price it attracted on international money markets or by the amount of interest they could charge. The Congress wanted to withdraw from the banks the right to issue credit on fractional reserves, and leave the banks the right to issue credit on account of actual deposits, which means that permanent money will be loaned not bank manufactured money.
“By this bill, Congress resumes its constitutional duty of issuing money and regulating its value, a duty and a right which it has long been abdicated to the private banking system,” read the preamble of the bill. The bill would have eliminated the private manufacture of money – a direct contravention of the mandate of the Constitution, which places the right to coin money in the hands of Congress.
PAYING OFF THE NATIONAL DEBT
The bill would have allowed the nation to pay off its national debt and stay out of debt. In one year’s time, with this bill, the national debt could have been paid, and without any tax increases, plus it would have allowed for full employment.
“Because of the unsound practice of relying on the private manufacturing of monetary credits by private groups, you are preparing to lay heavier taxes on the shrunken income of the people, without hope of balancing the Budget perhaps for years to come,” was the testimony of Allen B. Brown, chairman of the New Economic Group.
Remember, this testimony is in 1936. “In order to meet the Budget deficits, this administration and the preceding one committed themselves to a program of borrowing, so that now the national debt has doubled with every prospect of further increase. More than half of this great sum of added debt represents merely book figure which the banks have lent the Government.
To pay for their service of writing figures on their books and canceling the Government checks in their clearing system, the Government has engaged to tax the American people. They must pay back the billions of book figures with sweat and labor, with goods and services to which they are now denied access of purchasing power for their families, and they must pay enormous debt charges.” Brown said that the bill before Congress would “put a stop to this process of privately manufacturing monetary credit for the use of business out of added government debt.”
“The banks manufacture, without borrowing it, the monetary credit which they loan to the Government. For every dollar they themselves contribute to the loaning process, they manufacture 10 credit dollars, and call them their own, although they base the credit dollars on human sweat and labor and productive genus that is not their own.”
The comments by Brown were a direct slap in the face of the Federal Reserve System – that was only 23 years old, at the time.
“The crying fault of our prevailing money system is its impermanence. It fluctuates wildly in volume, because it is debt-money, loans, and subject alternately to the fears and the sanguine expectations and speculative propensities of its private owners who have become the debt-masters of all business.”
At which point Brown added, “We need to be delivered of the curse of a money system that is not owned, as a cash-credit system, by the American people.
We want no longer a system that can at any time be cancelled out of existence with the dumping of pledged securities and, simultaneously, with the depression and deflation of all the physical and intangible assets of the American people.”
This bill would have “immediately” ended the private monetary credit inflation.
The Federal Reserve can create money out of nothing, simply printing it, lending it and printing more. Accordingly, it is a no-brainer that this bill never became law in 1936 – the banking interest was too powerful.
KENNEDY TRIED TO STOP THE FED
In 1963, President John Kennedy wanted an end to the Federal Reserve System, which had a strangle-hold on the United States and virtually the world. By a simple stroke of the pen, President Kennedy dismissed the Federal Resene System and ordered the U.S. governmcnt to restore its Constitutional-mandate of controlling the money.
President Kennedy was dead three weeks later.
When President Lyndon Johnson took office, he immediately rescinded Kennedy’s order and the Federal Reserve won another round.
Representative Charles A. Lindberg, Sr., ..the father of the famous aviator, ..was at the time a member of thc Banking and Currency Committee. He opposed the Federal Reserve Act and gave a speech on January 20, 1915.
“The system is private, conducted for the sole purpose of obtaining the greatest possible profits from the use of other people’s money, and in the interest of the stockholders and those allied with them.”
Representative Louis T. McFadden, chairman of the Housing Banking and Currency Committee, stated on June 10,1932..
“Some people think the Federal Reserve Banks are United States Government institutions. “They are not” Government institutions. They are privatc credit monopolies that prey upon the people of the United States for the benefit of themselves and their foreign and domestic swindlers; and rich and predatory money lenders.”
WAKE-UP, ..FOREIGN BANKERS OWN A “MAJORITY” OF THE FEDERAL RESERVE BANKING SYSTEM.
More that half the shareholdings in the Federal Reserve Banks are controlled by large New York City banks, including National City Bank, National Bank of Commerce, First National Bank, Chase National Bank, and Marine National Bank. When Rockefeller’s National City Bank merged with J.P. Morgan’s First National Bank in 1955, the Rockefeller group owned 22 percent of the shares of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, which in turn holds the majority of shares in the Federal Reserve System – 53 percent. But who really owns what?
Following are the top owners and controllers of the Federal Reserve Bank..
1. Rothchild banks of London and Berlin.
2. Lazard Brothers Banks of Paris.
3. Israel Moses Seif Banks of Italy.
4. Warburg Bank of Hamburg and Amsterdam.
5. Lehman Brothers Bank of New York.
6. Kuhn, Loeb bank of New York.
7. Chase Manhattan Bank of New York, which controls all of
the other 11 Federal Rwerve Banks.
8. Goldman, Sachs Bank of New York.
This ownership combination has been challenged by the Federal Reserve Bank, ..however, a study done by “Standards and Poors” has verified their ownerships.
This means that the controlling interest of our national monetary system is foreign owned.
In 1797, John Adams wrote to Thomas Jefferson;…
“All the perplexities, confusion and distress in America arise, not from defects of the Constitution or Confederation; not from any want of honor or virtue, as much as downright ignorance of the nature of coin, credit and circulation.”
In simple terms, the United States Government borrows money from the Federal Reserve Bank with interest. Here is how it works: The Government wants $1 billion. The Federal Reserve prints $1 billion – based upon (no hard assets) ..and then lends it to the Government at (a high interest rate). The bank did not have the original money, ..(it created it from nothing) ..and then made a bookkeeping entry, ..like (you writing yourself a check without funds) ..and cashing it.
The Federal Reserve, ..in essence, ..is a paper corporation, ..which controls the entire economic well-being of America.
Since 1913, ..no Congress, ..or no President has been strong enough, ..and/or, (willing) ..to stand up to the foreign-controlled Federal Reserve Bank. Even though a clause exists that allows the government, ..and/or, “we the people,” to (opt out) of the agreement signed by Woodrow Wilson.
The law allows that upon demand of Congress, the government, and/or we the people, can regain the authority as prescribed in the Constitution; “that only the Congress of this nation shall print an issue the coin and currency of this nation.
It’s a simple clause, requiring that upon demand and the return of the original $450 million invested by the Federal Reserve Corporation, Woodrow Wilson’s (unconstitutional) agreement becomes null and void.
A provision, and/or information, available to the public via the (freedom of information act) ..and is, ..and/or, ..”should be” known to every elected official in WashingtonD.C., i.e., ..to include the President, the Vice President ,..and every representative in Congress.
Again the Question: “Why are our elected representatives in Washington not representing us? ..we pay their salaries in good faith, ..so why are “we” ..those that trust “them” with our money and our lives, ..why are we, “We the People” not represented above the banking community?
One word: “GREED!”
Within the quickly approaching calendar year, ..will fall the 100th. anniversary of Woodrow Wilson selling America out for an $80,000 campaign contribution.
Within that 100 years, only one president, “John F. Kennedy” ..made an effort to write Wilson’s wrong, ..and as stated earlier, ..three weeks later John F. Kennedy was dead.
if we, “we the people,” stand in solidarity, ..we can demand that “our” Congress (write) the Federal Reserve Banking System a check for $450 million dollars and return to honoring our Constitution, ..or “they,” (our Congress) ..should find themselves standing in an unemployment line.
If we, “We the People,” were free of the Federal Reserve Banks and our currency was again (by law) printed and issued by “our” government as required in the Constitution “our” National Debt would virtually disappear overnight, ..and “our” need for more taxes to opperate “our” Government would radically diminish, ..and/or, ..disappear completely.
Thomas Jefferson was concise in his early warning to the American nation, “If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all their property until their children will wake up homeless in the country that “their” forefathers founded.”
I’ll be 71 years old in December, accordingly my participation in the future is limited. So my research and my writing is not for me, (my efforts) ..are for “you” ..and for the generations that will follow, ..for the young, ..and for the American citizens yet to be born.
It is my fervent belief, ..as “opposed” to most that I speak to about America’s future, ..(that it is not over), ..the American spirit, ..to include the young, “distracted by technology” ..and their “journey to discover themselves,” (will,) ..as past generations have, ..rise to the occasion against fascism and oppression.
According to Webster: fas·cism, A system of government marked by centralization of authority under a dictator, stringent socioeconomic controls, suppression of the opposition through terror and censorship, and typically a policy of belligerent nationalism and racism.
According to Webster: op·pres·sion, The arbitrary and cruel exercise of power.
Think about it, I’ll be back when the spirit moves me!
