"Some of the biggest men in the U. S., in the field of commerce and manufacturing, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it." President Woodrow Wilson, 1913
"...the real menace of our republic is this invisible government which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy length over city, state and nation. Like the octopus of real life, it operates under cover of self-created screen. It seizes in its long and powerful tentacles our executive officers, our legislative bodies, our schools, our courts, our newspapers and every agency created for the public protection." New York Mayor John F. Hylan, speech on March 26, 1922.
"The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the larger centers has owned the Government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson... " President Franklin Roosevelt, 1933.
In His Final Speech Ron Paul Warns Of “Continuous March Toward Fascism”: "...we can expect a continuous and dangerous march toward corporatism and even fascism with even more loss of our liberties.' Paul urged. 'All branches of our government today are controlled by individuals who use their power to undermine liberty and enhance the welfare/warfare state-and frequently their own wealth and power.'...
"The Congressman described the federal government as 'bloated, corrupt and wasteful', adding that 'Our Constitution, which was intended to limit government power and abuse, has failed.' 'The Founders warned that a free society depends on a virtuous and moral people. The current crisis reflects that their concerns were justified.'...In his concluding remarks, Paul outlined five great dangers impeding the goal of a free society:
1. The continuous attack on our civil liberties...
2. Violent anti-Americanism that has engulfed the world....
3. The ease in which we go to war, without a declaration by Congress...
4. A financial political crisis as a consequence of excessive debt, unfunded liabilities...
5. World government taking over local and US sovereignty..."
The American and British governments knew – down to the day – of the coming Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor…and let it happen to justify American entry into WWII: "The White House apparently had – a year before Pearl Harbor – launched an 8-point plan to provoke Japan into war against the U.S.... Moreover, Honolulu newspapers warned of a possible attack by the Japanese on Pearl Harbor....
"...the American and British knew of the Japanese plan to attack Pearl Harbor...and allowed it to happen to justify America’s entry into World War II. ...the FDR administration took numerous affirmative steps to ensure that the Japanese attack would be successful. These steps included taking extraordinary measures to hide information from the commanders in Hawaii about the location of Japanese war ships (information of which they would normally be informed), denying their requests to allow them to scout for Japanese ships... so that the attacks would succeed.... In addition, the heads of the Army and Navy suddenly disappeared and remained unreachable on the night before Pearl Harbor. And they would later testify over and over that they 'couldn’t remember' where they were." More information here: Trusting God as Freedom Fades and The Hidden Control of the CFR
The above glimpse of a despicable and deceptive WW2 event reminds me of a more recent government sham:
Security Cut Before Libya Raid: "The State Department scaled back U.S. security staff in Libya in the weeks and months before the Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi that killed four Americans, despite requests for additional personnel..."
Video: Know Your Enemy (Part 53 - The Capitol): "Series exploring the coming New World Order from a Christian perspective. In this part, we start exploring the Masonic symbolism [warning: occult idols] of the United States starting with The Capitol."
Freemasonry and the British Monarchy - Why the Queen of England Pretends to be a Christian: "The groundwork was laid in the 17th century.... Through their world-wide system of secret societies, business monopolies and family connections, as well as their stranglehold on the international banking system, they have been able to infiltrate the political structure of virtually every country in the world and install client or puppet regime of one kind or another. ...democracies are often their preferred system of governance since they reinforce the illusion that a free and popular consensus is directing each country." See The Hidden Control of the CFR
Tea Party and Occupy activists rub shoulders at Bilderberg protest : "A protest targeting a secretive meeting of powerful international leaders entered a third day Saturday, with numbers swelling well into the hundreds. ....With the hotel in sight just a few hundred yards away, demonstrators broke into a chant of 'murderous scum' 'treason' and 'we are aware.'" See 2012 Bilderberg Meeting Participant List
Proof of a Conspiracy – Globalists Speak Openly about their Deadly Agenda: "One definition of conspiracy reads as follows: ‘A secret agreement between two or more people to perform an unlawful act.’ That is okay as far as it goes, but it does not even begin to capture the breadth and scope of the Globalist agenda. Once you define it correctly, it starts to look less like a conspiracy and more like a business plan – which is exactly what it is: 'A secret agreement by a number of super-rich elite families to increase their wealth and power on the world stage by covert means, with a view ultimately to impose a unified world government under their control, and to employ a range of subversive techniques and programs in diverse fields – political, financial, economic, military, industrial, medical, educational, religious, and media-related, among others – to achieve this objective.'
"These super-rich families and those who support them are known by various names, including the Power Elite, the Ruling Elite, the cabal of International Bankers, the Illuminati, the Globalists, and the Black Nobility. One can even think of them as the Trillionaires Club. It is in essence an agreement among like-minded people who are seeking to establish a global monopoly on the commodity they value more than any other – Power."

Failure: The Supercommittee Was A Super Joke: "...all of this federal debt has enabled us to enjoy a 'false prosperity' for several decades... Our 'real economy' is rapidly being gutted and America is becoming poorer as a nation every single day.... When the government debt bubble pops, the pain is going to be enormous.
"...if the federal government abolishes the Federal Reserve and starts issuing debt-free money, we could eliminate our federal budget deficits, cut taxes and improve the economy all at the same time. But nobody is even talking about debt-free money. Instead, all of our politicians are talking about 'fixing' the current system."

The Secret Cabal: "What is the Trilateral Commission? What is the CFR? Who controls the organizations? ... What is their goal? Before you can understand the answer to those questions, you must learn the purpose and goal of the secret society that Cecil Rhodes founded in 1891 because the CFR, the Bilderbergs, and the Trilateral Commission are descendents of that covert organization.
"Professor Carroll Quigley was one of the leading historians of the twentieth century, and taught at Princeton and Harvard before he accepted a position at Georgetown University. ... He researched [Cecil Rhodes' secret society] for twenty years, examined their secret records, and wrote two books about the covert movement. ...His second book, "Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in Our Time," was suppressed for 6-8 years....
"Initially the inner core of the secret society was called 'The Circle of Initiates'... and from 1910 to 1920 it was called 'The Round Table' or 'the Group.' [In 1921] the cabal established the Council on Foreign Relations in the United States and branches of the Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA) in the Commonwealth nations....
"...they precipitated and prolonged World War I, they orchestrated World War II, they transferred Eastern Europe and China to the communists, they got the U.S. and Great Britain to fight a no-win-war in Korea and a no-win war in Vietnam....
"Why do they want to precipitate a war? They believe the chaos generated by the financial crisis and the suffering caused by the coming war will force nations to relinquish their sovereignty. Henry Kissinger said, 'The alternative to a new international order is chaos.'" See Revolutionary Steps to Global Tyranny
Alleged hit-and-run driver may not face felony: "A financial manager for wealthy clients will not face felony charges for a hit-and-run because it could jeopardize his job, prosecutors said Thursday. Martin Joel Erzinger, 52, faces two misdemeanor traffic charges stemming from a July 3 incident when he allegedly hit bicyclist Dr. Steven Milo from behind then sped away....
"Milo, 34, is a physician living in New York City with his wife and two children, where he is still recovering from his injuries, court records show. Milo suffered spinal cord injuries, bleeding from his brain and damage to his knee and scapula, according to court documents. Over the past six weeks he has suffered 'disabling' spinal headaches and faces multiple surgeries for a herniated disc and plastic surgery to fix the scars he suffered in the accident. 'He will have lifetime pain, Haddon wrote. His ability to deal with the physical challenges of his profession — liver transplant surgery — has been seriously jeopardized....
"Erzinger... is a director in private wealth management at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney in Denver.... [He] fled the scene and was arrested later."
[Hillary's] Foreign Policy Address at the Council on Foreign Relations: "Thank you very much, Richard [Haass, CFR President], and I am delighted to be here in these new headquarters. I have been often to, I guess, the mother ship in New York City, but it’s good to have an outpost of the Council right here down the street from the State Department. We get a lot of advice from the Council, so this will mean I won’t have as far to go to be told what we should be doing and how we should think about the future."

"Who killed ACORN probe? "Who told House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers, Michigan Democrat, to lay off the radical activist group ACORN? The 23-term congressman... reaffirmed a May 4 statement that a probe of ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) 'appears unwarranted at this time.' 'The powers that be decided against it,' he said Wednesday.... 'Who are the powers that be?'" See The Power Elite Exposed Behind the Rising New World
Obama Wants Fed to be Supercop: "The White House told industry officials on Friday that it is leaning toward recommending that the Federal Reserve become the super cop for 'too big to fail' companies capable of causing another financial meltdown." See Reinventing the World
Why the U.N. can never bring peace (2003): "For millions around the world, a U.N.-fostered peace is more than a hope; it is an inevitable necessity. ...The horror of war is what galvanizes them. ...but the United Nations is not about 'talk' as its world court indicates. Force is waiting in the wings – and what's worse, this force will be used to establish a peace that no one is willing to define up front. After all, what does a U.N. 'peace' really mean?...
"Globalists don't seem to fear the U.N.'s meaninglessness. And with all their talk of peace, they also don't seem to fear the violence inevitably required to control the whole world. There is an explanation for this lack of concern.... We only need to understand the evolutionary faith of the secular worldview... Since there is no God (none they recognize), secular governments become the final moral authority in each society, the giver of all rights. To put it the communist way, 'God is the state and the state is God.' However, this belief system leaves secularists to deal with hundreds of little god-governments (and some are not so little), all with different 'opinions' about right and wrong."

Supersized IMF Could Run World Economy: "The IMF [International Monetary Fund] is changing, and with it, there will be a sea change in the way the world economy is run.... You're talking about global economic management in a way we have never seen."
Planning the Steps to World Government: [from the "trusted" economic advisers Obama inherited from previous administrations] "...the U.S. Treasury was actively working to expand a global economic infrastructure. The things that I was hearing on the international level, along with the ideas of the 1994 Human Development Report, were common knowledge to everyone except the American people. Later on in November, I interviewed Paul Volcker and specifically asked him about what he saw for the future. He told me, 'What the world needs is a global currency.'” The emerging New World Order
Is this the end of America? "As an aghast world — from China to Chicago and Chihuahua — watches, the circus-like U.S. political system seems to be declining into near chaos. Through it all, stock and financial markets are paralyzed. The more the policy regime does, the worse the outlook gets. ... We see the system up close, law-making that is riddled with slapdash, incompetence and gamesmanship. ....the [tax-funded] Fed will have to be prepared to absorb all the excess money it has poured into the U.S. economy. It will be a technical and political challenge unlike any central bank has ever undertaken." See Obama's Presidency
Fed's secrecy policy 3 years old tomorrow: "As America's economy continues in freefall, tomorrow marks an auspicious three-year anniversary – the day the Federal Reserve announced, with little fanfare, its decision to stop reporting to the public the M3 money supply, the broadest measure of three standards of measurement."
Never waste a good crisis: "Clinton told young Europeans at the European Parliament that global economic turmoil provided a fresh opening. 'Never waste a good crisis...,' she said."
Was this economic crisis planned? "Barack Obama's ... chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, told business leaders assembled by the Wall Street Journal in November that the economic crisis facing the country is 'an opportunity to do things you could not do before.' That has to be one of the most chilling statements I have ever heard uttered by an American political official....He followed up... with this: 'You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.'
"...in 1928, Edward Bernays wrote in his work, 'Propaganda,' the following: 'The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government, which is the true ruling power in our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.' ....Could we have been manipulated into this financial crisis for economic gain and political power for the few?...
"By the end of last month, Paulson and Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke had engineered loans, pledges and guarantees of more than $7.4 trillion to the financial elite that was responsible for creating the economic crisis in which we find ourselves today:

Economic Stimulus Bill Mandates Electronic Health Records for Every Citizen without Opt-out or Patient Consent Provisions: "...the economic stimulus bill mandates electronic health records for every citizen without providing for opt-out or patient consent provisions. 'Without those protections, Americans' electronic health records could be shared -- without their consent -- with over 600,000 covered entities through the forthcoming nationally linked electronic health-records network.'. ...The federal medical privacy rule promulgated under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996... already permits the disclosure of personal health information without patient consent."
