    This is Antony Sutton:

    Antony Sutton, circa 1984

    In the not-too-distant past, Sutton was counted among the more respected historians in higher education, holding the title of research fellow at the esteemed Hoover Institute at Stanford University. Before being jettisoned from this coveted position by the Trilateral-affiliated dean, Sutton was (and remains) one of the most thorough academic researchers on the machinations of the Anglo-American Establishment to date. His work was so well-documented that, despite being antagonistic towards Sutton's worldview, even Rhodesian globalist Zbignew Brzezinski cited the accuracy of his research in his book, Between Two Ages.

     

     

    Of the erudite body of work produced by Antony Sutton, he remains best known for his books on banking, industrial, corporate, and military aid to Nazi Germany and the USSR by American companies. The most widely read of these volumes, Wall Street and the Rise of Hitlerand Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution, hold that a secret cabal of Anglo-American forces have been integral in the creation and support of every "East vs. West" dialectic of the past century. Quite a thesis, with a slew of primary documentation and the pedigree to back it up.

     

    Needless to say, Sutton had to go.

     

    His removal from the hallowed and controlled halls of Academia didn't stop him, though, as he continued to publish research on Deep Politics related to the Trilateral Commission and Skull and Bones, among other things. Unfortunately, as seems to be a tendency among great researchers speaking truth to power, Sutton passed too early back in 2002, and since, his investigation into the international Anglophile cabal has remained largely unadvanced.

     

    Until recently, there was no "Great Eastern Superpower" to warrant such research, as the bulk of occulted geopolitical study was focused instead on the "War on Terror" paradigm; in a post-2008 world in which the media, both alternative and otherwise, have readily forecast rise of the BRICS "anti-hegemon," (as they're called by some) this has all changed.

     

    James Corbett of The Corbett Report has recently taken up the mantle of Antony Sutton, challenging the open source research community to investigate potential ties between the Anglo-American Establishment and the growth of China as a world power in the 21st Century. In an attempt to rise to the occasion, this article seeks to help with the heavy lifting, and as the title indicates, will investigate this narrative through the lens of Agenda 21 in China.

     

    What I've managed to find thus far is fascinating, if not somewhat expected.

    Trilaterals Over Tianjin

     

    Tianjin is no normal Chinese city. Billed as a joint partnership between China and Singapore, Tianjin is one of the United Nations' flagship "Eco-Cities." In fact, it's no normal "Eco-City," either; the UN has a particular affinity for Tianjin, going so far as to hold its annual Climate Change Convention there in 2010. It's a textbook "green engineered" Smart City as called for in the 1992 Rio Conference on Sustainable Development, colloquially known as Agenda 21, and despite China erecting these "Smart Cities" en-masse in recent years, Tianjin remains one the country's only successful "sustainable" ventures.Tianjin: The future slums of Eco-Fascism

    Tianjin: The future slums of Eco-Fascism

    To what does Tianjin owe this seemingly unnatural success? Look no further than one of Agenda 21's hallmarks, the public private partnership, for the answer; as one would expect, Tianjin has quite the sordid (and fiscally endowed) cast of private financiers behind its advancement. Investment in Tianjin's "green infrastructure" alone is slated at over $6.5 billion USD as of 2015. Taking a glance at their "Partners" page, three entities stand out as particularly noteworthy (circled in red):

     

    General Motors, Mitsui Fudosan, and Samsung

    General Motors, Mitsui Fudosan Residential, and Samsung

     

    What do these three corporations have in common and how are the tentacles of Globalism operating through them to erect Tianjin as China's leading Smart City? One helped build the Nazi Empire. Two are members of the globalist Trilateral Commission. Another is among the infamous zaibatsu,established in the wake of the Meiji Restoration as the West's mercantile dog in Asia. All have historical ties to the "apex of [Western] industry," otherwise known as the "power elite."

     

    We first turn our glance, as Antony Sutton once did, towards General Motors.

     

    From Sustainable Wars to Sustainable Development

     

    NaziGM

     

    Yes, this actually happened.

     

    GM, as outlined in Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler, is no stranger to promoting internationalism at the expense not only of American interests, but human life in general. Particularly egregious was the support for the Nazi war machine by General Motors, spanning from as early as 1928 into the waning days of World War II in 1945. "Support," perhaps, does not belie the true extent of GM's value to the Third Reich, as they were an integral component within the American cabal secretly supporting Germany. Opel, Germany's largest tank supplier, was a wholly-owned subsidiary of General Motors and a seminal example of the early Military Industrial Complex. 1936 marked a profitable turning point for the enterprising Nazis at GM, as the Reich granted them tax-exempt status in order to expand factories for the upcoming war effort. Not exactly the "Arsenal of Democracy" you heard about on the History Channel, is it?

    Opel Tanks - 'Like A Rock'

     

    Not to be caught undiversified and solely in the business of making tanks, GM maintained close ties with Standard Oil of New Jersey in a joint effort to fuel the Nazi military. From providing the components for synthetic oils and rubbers to supplying ethyl lead for engine maintenance, Rockefeller's Standard Oil and GM, via the I.G. Farben cartel, delivered the means and methods of keeping the resource-strapped, war-torn Germany on steady footing much longer than could have otherwise been sustained. America makes bombs, Germany makes bombs, GM makes a killing. Sutton says of this incestuous "apex" of American industry:

     

    "In brief, American companies associated with the Morgan-Rockefeller international investment bankers -- not, it should be noted, the vast bulk of independent American industrialists -- were intimately related to the growth of Nazi industry. It is important to note as we develop our story that General Motors, Ford, General Electric, DuPont and the handful of U.S. companies intimately involved with the development of Nazi Germany were -- except for the Ford Motor Company -- controlled by the Wall Street elite -- the J.P. Morgan firm, the Rockefeller Chase [National Bank] and to a lesser extent the Warburg Manhattan bank. This book is not an indictment of all American industry and finance. It is an indictment of the "apex" -- those firms controlled through the handful of financial houses, the Federal Reserve Bank system, the Bank for International Settlements, and their continuing international cooperative arrangements and cartels which attempt to control the course of world politics and economics."

     

    -Antony Sutton, Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler

     

    It should come as no shock to the attentive student of history that GM's documented affiliation with the Third Reich is more than indicative of their participation in the establishment of the digital, technocratic, global Fourth Reich represented by "Smart Cities" like Tianjin. Equally as indicative are the forces behindGeneral Motors, which, perhaps not coincidentally, are much the same today as they were 80 years ago. During the time period investigated in Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler, GM's largest shareholder was none other than JP Morgan, itself a front for Rothschild interests in America. In the wake of the 2008 "Great Recession," GM was effectively nationalized. One of its subsidiaries explicitly mentioned by Sutton as maintaining ownership of Opel, the General Motors Acceptance Corporation (GMAC), is now controlled by Cerberus Capital Management, owning a 51% stake.

    The international chairman of Cerberus is none other than Dan Quayle, former Vice President under George H.W. Bush, son of Nazi financier Prescott Bush. The same Prescott Bush, it's worth noting, who not only counted himself as a member of Skull and Bones, but also escaped prosecution at Nuremberg despite being identified as the owner of Fritz Thyssen's American shell company, Union Banking Corporation. Perhaps just for old time's sake, Cerberus appointed JP Morgan as its investment fund administrator back in 2011.

     

    ...but they promise they don't fund fascist empires anymore. Just sustainable cities and networked smart cars:

    ChevyTianjin

     

    Doubtlessly, the tank manufacturing assistance provided by the GM of 80 years ago seems far less innocuous than their "Smart Growth" projects of today, like the all-electric, self-driving Chevy EN-V 2.0. Superficially, the shift from military assistance to "green growth" could even be seen in a positive light. But is it? Does a driverless car, whose inherent aim is to limit human control of the machine, make anyone more free or autonomous themselves? Are cars constantly connected to the Internet, laden with microphones, sensors, and geolocation data a liberating technological development in a world where digital snitches in our pockets (smartphones) already run rampant?

     

    After all, the "public-private partnership" between organizations like Google, Microsoft, Apple, and the NSA have already proven these incestuous relationships to be a civil libertarian's worst nightmare. Will a similar relationship between the Chinese government and automotive manufacturers bring about the same results?

     

    From China Daily:

    The title of China Daily's article requires a slight addendum, as upon further reading of the passage, "Government" deserves pluralization. Evidently, the Chinese Ministry of Environmental Protection requires the sage advice of the American EPA before proceeding in public-private ecstacy:

    Keeping one's head straight is a constant challenge in the 21st Century. Should I be terrified of China, as many mainstream and alternative news sources beggar of me, as the world is swept by a "New Cold War"? Should I scratch my head in confusion as American corporations, the Chinese government, the United Nations, and the EPA seem so tightly coordinated on pushing forth "sustainable development" despite being supposed "enemies"? Should I outsource my critical thinking and succumb to cognitive dissonance?

     

    Or was Antony Sutton onto something after all?

     

    The Sustainable Trilaterals

     

    Founded in 1973 by David Rockefeller and Zbignew Brzezinski to serve as a coalition of elites within finance and politics from Japan, Europe, and North America, the Trilateral Commission's ostensible purpose is to "foster closer cooperation among these core industrialized areas of the world with shared leadership responsibilities in the wider international system."

     

    The Trilateral Commission's logo - definitely NOT reminiscent of a Swastika

    In reality, the Trilateral Commission is yet another Neomercantile consolidation of political and economic power. Born with the destruction of the Bretton Woods System, Trilateralism attempted to fill the void left in the international monetary system by the lack of a gold trade standard with privately agreed upon trading blocks; in the age before NAFTA, the EU, and TPP, such coalitions between corporations and government were made largely via "Deep Political" actors like the Trilateral Commission (Bilderberg, the Council on Foreign Relations, and Chatham House are three other such Deep Political actors). Over the course of the late-70s and early-80s, Antony Sutton co-authored a series of papers entitled, Trilaterals Over Washington,but in lieu of recounting them here in their entirety, allow this establishment propaganda on the Trilateral Commission from the 1980s sitcom, Barney Miller, to enumerate the Commission's true intentions (masked as comedy, of course):

     

     

    Among the seeming prerequisites for admission to the Church of Globalism, in addition to alignment with the agenda satirically described above, is support of Agenda 21's sustainable development principles, and in this respect, the Trilateral Commission does not disappoint: Maxime Verhagen, Minister of Economic Affairs, Agriculture, and Innovation of the Netherlands, speaks before the Trilateral Commission

    Nor is such a declaration of "Green Revolution" an isolated incident. The Trilateral Commission maintains a well-sourced adherence to the global vision prescribed in Agenda 21. Trilateralism, since its inception, has had a specific affinity with Asia; originally tasked with merely assimilating Japan, the Commission has since added a number of Asian countries to its repertoire, most notably South Korea. Chinese Trilaterals are still vastly underrepresented, but the organization has taken great care in hand-selecting former diplomats, academics, and businessmen with Chinese experience, as their 2014 roster clearly demonstrates.

     

    Despite Chinese participation in Trilateralism being lax, the presence of Trilateral activity in China erecting Technocratic "Eco-Cities" is to be expected, especially given Trilateral member and Rockefeller "partner" Henry Kissinger's infamous experience in China:

    With or without Kissinger's numerous Chinese ventures, the Trilateral Commission has wasted no time installing its agents in "sustainably developing" Tianjin Eco-City. In fact, one of the Trilateral Commission's premier Asian members, Mitsui Fudosan Group of Japan, is a leading development partner in Tianjin's "green" efforts: Screenshot from 2015-06-17 14:14:23

    And as late as 2014, over 40 years since the Commission's founding, Mitsui still held prominent representation within Trilateralism by way of Takeshi Kunibe from Mitsui Banking and Shoei Utsuda, the Chairman of Mitsui's Board of Directors:

    In typical Japanese corporatist fashion, the Eco-Technocracy of Tianjin was a domestic product before being exported to foreign markets. Japan, like much of the Western world, is awash with "sustainable development" projects, but one of its more notable Japanese efforts is Kashiwa-no-ha Smart City. As of June 2015, Kashiwa-no-ha is featured on the homepage of Mitsui Fudosan Group's English page. Upon examination of Kashiwa-no-ha's homepage, Mitsui seems to be, in large part, spearheading this project.

    Mitsui is developing Kashiwa-no-ha in line with a true Technocratic vision: A model city in which pervasive, wirelessly-integrated sensors document, trace, track, and surveil every aspect of human life. This data, managed via an Orwellian Smart Center (read: Central Control) will "oversee energy operations, management, and control for the entire town." Constantly conglomerated and organized by central servers and algorithms, Smart Center's data on every aspect of the city is then served up on a silver platter for Academia, another element of Agenda 21's public-private partnerships. Kashiwa-no-ha's residents will be, quite literally, lab rats for the University research labs of Japan. Screenshot from 2015-06-17 14:22:44

     

    Will Mitsui bring to Tianjin the same tightly-controlled, technofeudal model it is developing in Kashiwa-no-ha? Given that Smart Cities the world over, from Masdar to Songdo, have adopted nearly identical models regardless of the "public" or "private" consortium of partners involved, future Chinese Eco-City residents shouldn't hold their breath. Speaking of Songdo (a Korean smart city), across the Sea of Japan lies another Trilateral-affiliated corporation listed as a partner in Tianjin Eco-City, Samsung. The South Korean company's experience in mobile phones and wireless technologies will doubtlessly come in handy when networking the slaves of Smart Cities the world over to Mother Brain, assets for which Samsung's President & COO, Lee Jae-yong, was likely selected for Trilateral membership:

    Lee Jea-yong's bio as it appears on the Trilateral Commission's 2014 roster

     

    Lee Jea-yong's bio as it appears on the Trilateral Commission's 2014 roster

     

    The Songdo International Business District's connect, scan, and surveil model, despite being located in Samsung's home country, was actually developed in partnership with Cisco, who also implemented Masdar City's wireless networking infrastructure. As noted earlier, however, the model from city to city remains nearly identical. Of Songdo, Smart Data Collective says:

     

    "Songdo will become a completely connected city, where almost any device, building or road will be equipped with wireless sensors or microchips. This will result in smart innovations such as streetlights that automatically adjust to the number of people out on the street. All houses in Songdo will be equipped with sensors, also known as domotica, which can be managed via a large TV in the living room of each residency. Next to the homes, these TelePresence screens will be available in all offices, hospitals, schools and shopping centres. The City of Songdo is a futuristic city, completely ready in 2015." via Smart Data Collective

     

    With Songdo's "Internet of Things" niche already filled by Cisco, one might assume that participation by Samsung in Songdo would be redundant. Fortunately for Samsung, it turns out to be a far more versatile company than the average smartphone-toting, LCD-watching American is privy to, as in 2011, Samsung's pharmaceutical division, Samsung Biologics, broke ground on its newest manufacturing facility in Songdo:

     

    Samsung Biologics moves to Songdo, via pharmaceutical-technology.com

     

    Samsung Biologics moves to Songdo, via pharmaceutical-technology.com

     

    A savvy investment for Samsung, surely, as the free medical data mined from Songdo's unwitting populous will be quite handy in manufacturing new alopathic drugs, likely to be sold directly back to the captive and heavily surveiled market that is Songdo.

     

    Sustainability or Bust

     

    Tianjin in China, Songdo in Korea, Kashiwa-no-ha in Japan; Asia is certainly "all in" on sustainability, and given that the development of modern Asian urban centers (pervasive wireless connectivity, electric-powered transit, high density construction, pedestrian-centric urban planning, etc.) are already in line with many "sustainable development" principles, the East is an ideal target for marketing Agenda 21's Smart Cities. Japan in particular is facing a widely publicized demographic crisis, a symptom of which has been the creeping diminishment of rural (mainly farming) villages and towns, another stated aim of the guidelines put forth by the Rio Earth Summit in 1992. The Hegelian crisis of "climate change," the Globalist's deus ex machinaintended to unify mankind against an eternal Straussian enemy, has also been stressed to Eastern populations. Collectivize under the auspices of Eco-Technocracy or face another Fukushimais the implication put forth not only to Japan, but all countries affected by the numerous fault lines in the vicinity of the Sea of Japan. SmartEcoCity, a sustainable development project based out of China, intimates as much in an article published in March of 2014:

    .

     

    Screenshot from 2015-06-17 15:12:23

     

    This orchestrated propaganda campaign aimed at herding rural Korean and Japanese people into Smart Cities goes beyond isolated blog posts by sustainable development firms in China. Korean media is also in full swing propagating the meme that Smart Cities are the perfect escape for victims ravaged by "climate change." In the wake of Fukushima, Yonhap News of Korea published a human interest piece about Japanese citizens displaced in the crisis relocating to none other than Songdo, South Korea.

     

    Problem? "Climate change" is destroying human life and infrastructure throughout the world. Reaction? Devastation, as for the survivors of Fukushima who now find themselves homeless and unemployed. Solution? Be willingly stacked-and-packed in your local Smart City, of course, before such a fate befalls you as well! Truly a Hegelian masterpiece.

     

    No less masterful is mainland China's orchestrated campaign to advertise "Smart Growth," though by a somewhat different tactic: Heavy-handed bureaucracy and overt threats of fines, closure of business, or imprisonment if emission guidelines are not adhered to.

    China's "public" expression of the "public-private partnership" paradigm enshrined by Agenda 21 is perfectly in line with its development as a mixed totalitarian/capitalistic state, expressed most recently by new mandates ranking "civic compliance" through social media usage. Civic compliance ratings that will, as planned by Smart Cities, eventually include individual's "eco-friendliness." Between the strict control of China's dictatorial ruling class, American automotive engineering know-how, and the globalized neofeudal model of the Trilateral Commission working in perfect harmony, Chinese Smart Cities like Tianjin have a bright future. Just make sure that light's an LED powered solely by wind, or you may have to be recycled, Comrade.

     

    Conclusions

     

    Sutton's research in the Wall Street series revolved centrally around technological and financial transfers from West to East during World War II and throughout the Cold War to America's supposed enemies. In examining three examples of Anglo-American Establishment corporations implementing Agenda 21 in China, we find these same two elements that Sutton identified in Wall Streetat work in the "public-private partnership" that comprises Tianjin Eco-City: Significant Anglo-American corporations providing technological and financial assistance towards Chinese "Smart Growth" projects. While the wholesale export of American military ingenuity Eastward described by Sutton is beyond the purview of this article, the links that have been enumerated upon here are no less insidious. As informed individuals are privy to, Agenda 21 and the "Eco Tech" movement surrounding it are, Agenda 21 researcher Rosa Korie states, merely a green mask. Behind the mask lies the vision of Brzeiznski, of Huxley, Orwell, and of comptrollers throughout the ages: Nothing short of a society under complete and constant surveillance by governments, academics, and corporations to be managed by a class of "technotronic elites":

     

    "The technotronic era involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled society. Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values. Soon it will be possible to assert almost continuous surveillance over every citizen and maintain up-to-date complete files containing even the most personal information about the citizen. These files will be subject to instantaneous retrieval by the authorities."

     

    -Zbignew Brzezinski, Between Two Ages

     

    The Gestapo attempted to construct the very panopticon described by Brzezinski above; a society greeted by the constant creedo of, "Papers, please," as German citizens shuffled through the streets unaware whether the man next to him should be treated with camaraderie or suspicion. The failure of this goal throughout the 30s and 40s was not for lack of trying, but a simple matter of timing. The technological, automated surveillance of the 21st Century that could make such a society feasible simply did not exist yet. It cannot be said, however, that the Third Reich's efforts were not forward-thinking in this respect, as none other than IBM was contracted to manage the records of citizens slated for "extermination" by the German government. While IBM Analytics didn't exist 80 years ago, their algorithms now in existence, designed to mirror the Pre-Crime of dystopian science fiction of films like likeMinority Report,certainly would have come in handy for Nazi futurists of the era:

     

     

    For Berlin to develop into a "Smart City" capable of such goals would have required nearly a century of thumb-twiddling to bide the time necessary for the technology capable of enabling it to manifest, but for opportunistic leaders of today, no such time need be wasted. One could simply follow the lead of Smart Cities around the globe and install IBM Analytics' citizen management software:

    Smart Growth in line with Agenda 21's Anglo-American vision is not limited to China or any other geographic region, for that matter; its global spread knows no ethnic or political bounds. Regardless of seeming Western antagonism towards, for example, the BRICS nations, sustainable development principles have been adopted by BRICS at an unprecedented pace. The United Nation's Conference on Trade and Development held late last year published a document entitled, "A BRICS Development Bank: A Dream Coming True?" describing succinctly the UN's desire for the BRICS "New Development Bank" to fund sustainable development projects like Smart Cities. As cited in the publication itself (as well as the examples in the article herein), the BRICS NDB has wasted no time getting in lock-step with their UN, IMF, World Bank, and BIS partners' vision for a "sustainable" world.

     

    These same BRICS countries, many alt-media prognosticators proclaim, are tirelessly working towards supplanting the Anglo-American Establishment in geopolitics and finance. If this is truly the case, the BRICS "anti-hegemon" are either so tactically incompetent as to allow the Trilateral Commission and the computers, algorithms, and sensors of their Globalist affiliates to build their infrastructure, or the BRICS are not nearly as opposed to Global Serfdom as most would have you believe. The evidence suggests the latter to be infinitely more likely than the former.

     

    The development of China's Smart Cities is not overtly warfaric, but their veneer should not dissuade one from realizing the chilling nature of their Anglo-American funded presence. Agenda 21's sustainable development goals are nothing short of an Act of War; not of tanks, bombs, or maimed limbs. Not between clashing superstates, as in wars of the past, but between populations and their own governments.

     

    This challenge is not new or unique to our generation, but its current form and implementation are. Secret police replaced by sensors. Judge and jury supplanted by algorithm. Phone taps replaced with Orwellian "Smart TVs" (Telescreens) and Internet surveillance. Smart Meters to regulate every aspect of human dwellings. Smartphones to track your every movement. Self-driving cars to limit or restrict human mobility. Biotech and pharmaceuticals to regulate the spontaneity inherent in human thoughts and emotions.

     

    The challenge lies in recognizing this glittering Technocratic vision for what it is: Global dictatorship.

  • Conspiracy Theory: Government and Central Banking lies about Bitcoin - CEO of JPMorgan and Director of the Federal Reserve Jamie Dimon commits fraud



    Recently, CEO of JPMorgan Chase & Co. Jamie Dimon went on CNBC calling Bitcoin a "fraud" where he would "fire in a second" any JPMorgan trader trading in Bitcoin because it is against their "rules." Even though his daughter bought into Bitcoin and JPMorgan Chase & Co. has been caught trading in Bitcoin. Dimon's sentiment has been echoed by many central banks, mainstream media, and those connected to them in the government. Evidence is showing that Dimon is only projecting and is, in turn, frauding everyone who looks to him for guidance (appeal to authority). Below I provide evidence in support of the conspiracy theory that the banking elites run the government and control your lives.

     


    What is a conspiracy theory?It is the point of view that a group is plotting something sinister using direct movements and actions to control what is being seen, like in the sense of theater.

    • conspiracy (n.) mid-14c., from Anglo-French conspiracie, Old French conspiracie "conspiracy, plot," from Latin conspirationem (nominative conspiratio) "agreement, union, unanimity," noun of action from conspirare (see conspire).
    • conspire (v.) late 14c., from Old French conspirer (14c.), from Latin conspirare "to agree, unite, plot," literally "to breathe together," from com "with, together" (see com-) + spirare "to breathe" (see spirit (n.)).
    • theory(n.) 1590s, "conception, mental scheme," from Late Latin theoria (Jerome), from Greek theoria "contemplation, speculation; a looking at, viewing; a sight, show, spectacle, things looked at," from theorein "to consider, speculate, look at," from theoros "spectator," from thea "a view" (see theater) + horan "to see," which is possibly from PIE root *wer- (3) "to perceive."

     

    The idea that a conspiracy theory is some negative crack pot title is grossly fraudulent. Since the times of the Magna Carta and the creation of the Declaration of Independence conspiracy theories were viewedin a positive manner. In 1967, the CIA coined"conspiracy theory" in a negative light as a way to discredit any theories outside of the "official" story. The CIA wrotea dispatch that provided high level instructions for the stopping and discrediting of such conspiracy theories.

    • "Countering and discrediting the claims of the conspiracy theorists"
    • "Employ propaganda assets to and refute the attacks of the critics. Book reviews and feature articles are particularly appropriate for this purpose."
    • "Our ploy should point out, as applicable, that the critics are (I) wedded to theories adopted before the evidence was in, (II) politically interested, (III) financially interested, (IV) hasty and inaccurate in their research, or (V) infatuated with their own theories." (this happened during 9/11 which discredited any factual evidence that came out)
    • "In private to media discussions not directed at any particular writer, or in attacking publications which may be yet forthcoming, the following arguments should be useful:"
      • "No significant new evidence has emerged"
      • "[Critics] tend to place more emphasis on the recollections of individual witnesses" (to discredit eye witnesses)
      • "Conspiracy on the large scale often suggested would be impossible to conceal in the United States"



    Root definition - Objective truth

    • fraud (n.) from Latin fraudem (nominative fraus) "a cheating, deceit," of persons "a cheater, deceiver." Not in Watkins; perhaps ultimately from PIE *dhreugh- "to deceive" (source also of Sanskrit dhruti- "deception; error"). Meaning "a fraudulent production, something intended to deceive" is from 1650s. The meaning "impostor, deceiver, pretender; humbug" is attested from 1850.
    • government(n.) late 14c., "act of governing or ruling;" 1550s, "system by which a thing is governed" (especially a state), from Old French governement "control, direction, administration" (Modern French gouvernement), from governer "to govern" (see govern).

     

    Google Definition - Subjective

    • fraud (n.) wrongful or criminal deception intended to result in financial or personal gain.(notice they added criminal to the definition, which the government controls what is considered "criminal")
    • government(n.) the governing body of a nation, state, or community. The action or manner of controlling or regulating a nation, organization, or people.


    Who is Jamie Dimon? He is the current CEO of JPMorgan Chase & Co. and a Board of Director for the Federal Reserve of New York, and is worth close to a billion dollars. Some might consider his position with the Federal Reserve as a conflict of interest since the Federal Reserve "regulates" all central banks, including JPMorgan Chase & Co. The hypocrisies being pushed by Dimon and those like him are endless.


    What is the Federal Reserve? It is not a government agency, yet they control our entire monetary supply and system.

    • "The Federal Reserve Banks are not a part of the federal government, but they exist because of an act of Congress. Their purpose is to serve the public. So is the Fed private or public? The answer is both. While the Board of Governors is an independent government agency, the Federal Reserve Banks are set up like private corporations. Member banks hold stock in the Federal Reserve Banks and earn dividends. Holding this stock does not carry with it the control and financial interest given to holders of common stock in for-profit organizations. The stock may not be sold or pledged as collateral for loans. Member banks also appoint six of the nine members of each Bank's board of directors."
    • In John L. Lewis, Plaintiff/appellant, V. United States of America, Defendant/appelle, 680 F.2d 1239 (9th Cir. 1982):
      • "Each Federal Reserve Bank is a separate corporation owned by commercial banks in its region. The stockholding commercial banks elect two thirds of each Bank's nine member board of directors. The remaining three directors are appointed by the Federal Reserve Board. The Federal Reserve Board regulates the Reserve Banks, but direct supervision and control of each Bank is exercised by its board of directors."
      • "It is evident from the legislative history of the Federal Reserve Act that Congress did not intend to give the federal government direction over the daily operation of the Reserve Banks: It is proposed that the Government shall retain sufficient power over the reserve banks to enable it to exercise a direct authority when necessary to do so, but that it shall in no way attempt to carry on through its own mechanism the routine operations and banking which require detailed knowledge of local and individual credit and which determine the funds of the community in any given instance. In other words, the reserve-bank plan retains to the Government power over the exercise of the broader banking functions, while it leaves to individuals and privately owned institutions the actual direction of routine."
      • "Additionally, Reserve Banks, as privately owned entities, receive no appropriated funds from Congress."
      • "The Reserve Banks are deemed to be federal instrumentalities for purposes of immunity from state taxation."(taxation is theft [my first and secondarticle on taxation] though so we should all enjoy this exception)

     

    The Federal Reserve was created on December 23, 1913 by the Federal Reserve Act after the Panic of 1907 when faith in trust companies failed, manly the Knickerbocker Trust Company. J. P. Morgan "saved" the day when he bailed out the industry using his own money, while convincing other bankers to do the same. The Panic of 1907 was influencedby the New York Times who pushed Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt (FUD) as speculation started to rise over a potential scandal when the then-president of the Knickerbocker Trust Company, Charles T. Barney, tried to corner the copper stock market, leading to a bank run when the scheme failed and the stock plummeted. Within a couple of weeks after the Panic of 1907 Charles T. Barney committed suicide by a gunshot wound to the stomach. It was reported that Charles T. Barney was despondent over the fact that JP Morgan refused to meet with him. Sounds more like a Clinton suicide moment.

     

    Frederick G. Eldridge, who chartered the Knickerbocker Trust Company in 1884, was a friend and classmate of J. P. Morgan. In 1896, J. P. Morgan provided Adolph Simon Ochs, who owned the Chattanooga Times, the financing to secure the purchase of the struggling New York Times which provided J. P. Morgan influence over the stories published in their papers. This push and influence caused the bank run leading to the industry (really only New York) needing to be "saved." Sounds like a broken window fallacy, no?

     

    The next year following the Panic of 1907, John D. Rockefeller, Jr., established and led the commission looking into the panic and proposed the solution of creating the Federal Reserve System. Rockefeller, Sr., was 7th cousins to J. P. Morgan and in 1901 J. P. Morgan offeredRockefeller, Sr. close to $90 million in a deal for ore among other business dealings.

     

    On top of this, shortly after J. P. Morgan "saved" the day a broker firm, Moore & Schley, who had secured huge loans against $6 million worth of Tennessee Coal, Iron, and Railroad Company (TCI) shares had the loans called by the banks to cover the banking runs that hit the market. This caused another issue since Moore & Schley were one of several broker firms in massive debt, Moore & Schley sitting at $25 million in debt. J. P. Morgan jumpedat this chance and browbeat the other bankers (rumored he locked them in a room) until they agreed to help put up the money to cover the firm's debt with the additional resource of government funds (taxes). The plan worked and J. P. Morgan was able to help bail out the broker firm and secure the acquisition of TCI. TCI was the direct southern competitor of U.S. Steel, which J. P. Morgan owned. Furthermore, TCI had the largest use of prison laborers (most were black) who were convicted of victimless or petty crimes and forced to pay off their fines though hard labor (this is still happening today). The number of convicts "employed" by U.S. Steel grew rapidly after it acquired TCI. J. P. Morgan is a humanitarian and philanthropist, right?

     

    John Godfrey Moore, co-owner of Moore & Schley and had controlling interest in Chase National Bank, gained fame in 1893 for successfully suing the U.S. government to stop the Income Tax Act from becoming reality, at least until 1913. Moore had close business dealings with Rockefeller Sr. and J. P. Morgan. Moore died suddenly in 1899 and was a member of the Jekyll Island Club, as was J. P. Morgan and Rockefeller, Sr.

     

    Now, to me this lays out a scheme by several individuals to corner a market while one who knew about the plan plotted against the rest securing considerable power and resources for the future. J. P. Morgan used his position to take out a financial market that directly stood against his bank, trust companies were increasing by 3.5 times the rate compared to other central banks. On top of this J. P. Morgan was able to secure and corner the steel market leading to a monopoly.  J. P. Morgan wasn't done though, using this panic and resulting crisis he continued to push for greater banking and financial regulations. These regulations came to a point by the end of 1913. J. P. Morgan would not live to see his goal realized.

     

    What a year 1913 was... sad year for freedom. This was the year that we were graced with income tax and the Federal Reserve. Banks began to provide trust departments to help manage funds and community foundations grew out of the regulations and restrictions placed upon trust companies by the government. Community foundations are a public versions of trust companies. Senator Nelson Aldrich was a main push behind the Federal Reserve Act and the ratification of the Sixteenth Amendment which allowed for the start of income tax. Senator Aldrich's daughter, Abigail, married into the Rockefeller family in 1901. Senator Aldrich metwith Henry Davison, a senior partner at J. P. Morgan & Co., and others at Jekyll Island in November 1910 to discuss the creation of the Federal Reserve System, a centralized institution that would control the entire country's monetary supply.

     

     

    Did I mention that taxation is theft? It is. Promise. Even if these banks waste money and run their business into the ground they are viewed as "too big to fail" and those in the government will come to their aid using your hard earned money which is why the central banks needed the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008. $700 billion in stolen money went to these central bankers to help fix the mess they put the economy into and they threw parties to celebrate. Do you really feel that you are in control of your life? Do you really believe that the banking elite have your best interests at heart? Do you really think their mentality has changed any since time of J. P. Morgan and John D. Rockefeller, Sr.? If so, what evidence do you see that things have changed? The government controls you, and the central banks and the private business that is the Federal Reserve controls the government.

     


    Like Mayer Amschel Bauer Rothschild, founder of the International Banking House of Rothschild, said:

    Let me issue and control a nation’s money and I care not who writes the laws.


     

     

    Now, as with trust companies, a group of individuals, one being CEO Jamie Dimon, are starting to target cryptocurrencies in a sinister manner using direct movements and actions to control what is being seen. CEO Jamie Dimon has committed fraud in his push to attack cryptocurrencies. This is how it starts, using FUD before a "crisis" happens which will "require" the government to step in and regulate what you do with your property, your product of labor, your capital. You must keep yourself aware of these tactics that are geared to manipulate and control you. You have no control over the Federal Government. Everything is handed to you with the illusion of choice and freedom. So much of what happened over a 100 years ago still directly affects you daily. You are being stolen from constantly to fund foreign wars which didn't exist until the Federal Reserve and income tax. You are being manipulated by mainstream media who are controlled by the government and banking elite.

     

     

    Do you still think conspiracy theorists are crazy nut jobs? At what point is the evidence good enough for you to wake up to the slavery that exists today?

  • Lego Movie Review: Not just for statists

    Lego Movie

    Not too long ago, my co-host and friend, Matthew Dalton, suggested I take my kids to go see Lego movie. He told me that it was "anarchist propaganda" and my God, was it ever. I must warn you, I am about dissect and analyze all of the fun out of this movie (my editor says I'm supposed to type *Spoiler Alert* here) and I will not feel sorry about it. The movie begins when a wizard, Vitruvius, attempts to protect the "Kragle," a super weapon, from the evil President Business (an obvious poke at both government and cronyism,) who wants to use it to freeze the universe as it has been built by him. Vitruvius fails to stop him, but warns Lord Business of a prophecy where a person called the "Special" will find the Piece (Peace?) of Resistance capable of stopping the Kragle. I identified the typical tropes in a children's movie. You know, like, slapstick, references and parodies of known characters, The Chosen one, ect. ect. I was then introduced to the main character, Emmet Brickowski, an ordinary construction worker, and was given a not-so-subtle message about how it is necessary to conform and have blind acceptance of instruction to be happy.



    The part that made me say to myself, "The most staunch indictment of the culture of control that is pushed in Mainstream Media/Politics today is when the main character literally forgets his clothes without instruction to remind him." You might be familiar with that argument. "Without the law, how will people know how to be civil?" When in reality they are saying, "People are too stupid to regulate themselves and, apparently, will forget to dress in the morning."

     

    "Are not laws dangerous which inhibit the passions? Compare the centuries of anarchy with those of the strongest legalism in any country you like and you will see that it is only when the laws are silent that the greatest actions appear." -Marquis de Sade

     

    Following that scene, I was magically taken back to a time in my life when "fitting in" was important.

     

     

     

    Do you remember that time in your life? When you were easily influenced by the trends of society either through pop culture, politics, or your parents? The amount of time spent in that state of unaware malleability differs per individual because of environment, genetics and willpower. Emmet feels a very real need to be both a part of something bigger than himself and to stand out and be noticed. It is a paradox that all humans share. In his desire to be noticed, he did everything he was told to do, simply so that he might be considered be a part of something bigger. As most of us know, now that we are older, when you judge your own importance by the standards of others you will always eventually fail.

     

    "The roots of the word 'anarchy' are 'an archos,' 'no leaders,' which is not really about the kind of chaos that most people imagine when the word 'anarchy' is mentioned. I think that anarchy is, to the contrary, about taking personal responsibility for yourself." -Alan Moore

     

    After being shown that Emmet is so absolutely and entirely normal that he isn't even noticed by his peers, He comes across a woman, Wyldstyle, who is searching for something after hours at Emmet's construction site. When he investigates, Emmet falls into a hole and finds the Piece of Resistance. Compelled to touch it, Emmet experiences vivid visions and passes out. He awakens elsewhere with the Piece of Resistance attached to his back in the custody of Bad Cop, Lord Business' lieutenant, whose alter-ego is, of course, Good Cop. Let's stop here to introduce you to Good Cop/Bad Cop:

     

    “Power changes everything till it is difficult to say who are the heroes and who the villains.” ― Libba Bray, The Sweet Far Thing

     

    Bad Cop has a good side which still holds some influence over Bad Cop. Eventually, Good Cop is erased by President Business, which is a clear indictment of the police force today. If you work for an evil regime and never question orders, no matter how good a person you are on the inside, you will eventually have all that is good about you erased... but I digress. There, Emmet learns of Business' plans to freeze the world with the Kragle. Wyldstyle rescues Emmet and takes him to Vitruvius, who explains that he and Wyldstyle are "Master Builders" capable of building anything they need, both with great speed and without instruction manuals; when Lord Business rose to power, his disapproval of such anarchic creativity resulted in him capturing many of them.

     

    "Following the Inquisition's injunction against Galileo, the papal Master of the Sacred Palace ordered that Foscarini's Letter be banned, and Copernicus' De revolutionibus suspended until corrected. The papal Congregation of the Index preferred a stricter prohibition, and so with the Pope's approval, on March 5 the Congregation banned all books advocating the Copernican system, which it called "the false Pythagorean doctrine, altogether contrary to Holy Scripture.""

     

    As the "Special," Emmet is destined to defeat him, yet Wyldstyle and Vitruvius are disappointed to find Emmet displays no creativity. Now some of you are already aware of the "reluctant hero" trope. As a matter of fact, Ron Paul would be an excellent real-world parallel of this phenomenon. How many times have you heard, "I like Ron Paul except for...." Wyldstyle and Vitruvius take Emmet to an underground resistance where there is no instructions or rules. He obviously doesn't understand how a society can exists without rules.



    It is here where Emmet tries to take on the role of the Special and gives a very honest speech, causing the Master Builders to doubt him and his ability to change the world.

     

    "I have no experience fighting, leading or making plans. It's going to be really hard, but I..." -Emmet

     

    Soon, the Cops find the underground resistance and Emmet and his friends must run and hide. We are then treated to this wonderfully anarchic scene.



    First, we see many different people working together, yet separately, to achieve a common goal, and when Emmet asks to be told what to do, he is told not to worry about what the others are doing and do what is special to him. Jumping ahead in the story, Emmet is eventually told by Vitruvius that the Prophecy of the Special is made up and there is no such thing as the Special. It is when Emmet accepts this truth, that he is just one person whose ideas are not better or worse than anyone else, that he steps up to being a hero. That is the heart of Anarchism/Voluntaryism. No one is greater or worse than you. There are no bad ideas, just bad actions. No one should rule you or make you follow instruction just because they feel you should. I could go on and on about the parallels that were drawn in this movie to Anarchism and Voluntaryism, but I will let Emmet close this article for me.

     

    "You don't have to be the bad guy. You are the most talented, most interesting, and most extraordinary person in the universe. And you are capable of amazing things. Because you are the Special. And so am I. And so is everyone. The prophecy is made up, but it's also true. It's about all of us. Right now, it's about you. And you... still... can change everything." -Emmet
