TIME TO RING ALARM AS GOVERNMENTS MOVE TO NATIONALIZE AND UNITE BANKING SYSTEM
Let us ring the bell of concern -- perhaps alarm.
A few short years ago, it seemed like it was still a reach -- the concerns of a new world order that would lead to a single governing body which also implied a central agency for global finances.
The worries were obvious: when a single unit takes control, there is room for emergence then of an anti-Christian leader who assumes control of that financial governance -- perhaps even a personage of evil, as feared in the more apocalyptic prophecies (which have long indicated that world governments would coalesce to form a single financial entity).
Those who harbored such fears believed it would center, of course, on banks, which leads us to the current financial turmoil and the bracing way that nations are buying into or even assuming control of banks.
It started in the U.S. with Bear Stearns, spread to the virtual nationalization of an insurance giant, along with Fannie Mae (and Freddie Mac), and led to creation of a $700 billion "bailout" that will include buying into banks -- hundreds of which are in danger of failing.
At least $250 billion of taxpayers' money will be so invested in institutions such as Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, Wells Fargo, and Bank of America -- in an unprecedented (and many say socialistic) fashion. It is unprecedented not because of nationalization (this has been done in the past with railroads, steel, and indeed banks), but because of the expanding global backdrop that can harbor future consolidation. Socialism, if socialism we face, leads to control.
The purchasing of bank stakes was announced over the weekend -- at the same time that European governments overcame their differences to put $2.3 trillion on the line Monday in guarantees and other emergency measures "to save the banking system in their most unified response yet to the global financial crisis," in the words of NBC. The U.K. alone announced intent to pump $63 billion into troubled financial institutions.
The nationalization of finances thus dovetailed in a unified front (with leaders announcing a "global summit" to address banking) -- at the same time that many experts described what was solidifying as a "new world order" of economics (precisely the language long employed by "paranoid" conspiracists).
There have been the International Monetary Fund and World Bank and other global financial institutions, but with this -- direct government investment, on a coordinated global scale -- there is, of sorts, a concatenation.
Granted, it is not a crisis any one person or group could orchestrate. There was no evidence of a little cabal engineering it from Brussels, or Geneva (or Bohemian Grove). Are there really 300 to 700 families that control world matters? It seems difficult, although they do play a part.
But it is a concatenation nonetheless, and it seems part of a movement engineered at a spiritual level.
Troubling is the philosophy of men like former Federal Reserve chairman Alan Greenspan, who disastrously promoted loose credit and derivatives and is a disciple of Ayn Rand, whose book, Atlas Shrugged, glorified the right of individuals to live entirely for their own interest -- the opposite of Christianity. (See Jeff Walker's The Ayn Rand Cult.)
While Rand was not for state intervention, she was for unfettered, Godless self-interest, and was dismissive of faith (in any "god" or higher being).
Greenspan met Rand when he was 25 and working as an economic forecaster, according to The New York Times. He had married a member of Rand's inner circle, known as the Collective, that met every Saturday night in her New York apartment.
That philosophy materialized into the libertarianism that has now taken control over much of our society (including conservative commentary), and certainly Wall Street. "Money is the barometer of a society's virtue," she once said.
Here we see a spirit moving.
It is not a good energy, nor is the thrust for central control -- which can strip freedom. "Creative destruction" has long been a theory and now governments will have the same exposure to collapse as the banks, insurance giants, and mortgage firms in which they have invested.
Leaders today are blatantly using the term "new world order" -- once uttered, again, only by those "extremists." "The receivers of the United States Bankruptcy are the International Bankers, via the United Nations, the World Bank, and the International Monetary Fund," a congressman warned 16 years ago. "Unwittingly, America has returned to its pre-American Revolution, feudal roots whereby all land is held by a sovereign and the common people had no rights to hold allodial title to property. Once again, We the People are the tenants and sharecroppers renting our own property from a Sovereign in the guise of the Federal Reserve Bank. We the people have exchanged one master for another."
Let us not panic nor jump to conclusions. But globalized banking can lead to globalized currency -- swiftly. That should be avoided because it consolidates control -- dangerously.
Many have long warned of the Federal Reserve, and, one could argue, this is now starting to kick in.
Over the weekend Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi said political leaders were discussing the idea of closing the world's financial markets while they "rewrite the rules of international finance.''
The unification of finances under one umbrella goes right to worries that a one-world agency could then control all finances through a cashless society and with the use of bar codes and monitoring technology such as microchips and fingerprint identification (already used in banks).
It was Thomas Jefferson who, in a letter to Treasury Secretary Albert Gallatin, once said, in 1802: "I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs."
Or there are the words once intoned by President Franklin D. Roosevelt:
"They (who) seek to establish systems of government based on the regimentation of all human beings by a handful of individual rulers...Call this a new order. It is not new and it is not order."
Through prayer, we can know the truth. Through prayer, we can change the course. In the end, it can keep us free. But time runs fast, and it was Jefferson who also said that "the price of freedom is eternal vigilance."

[The Bankruptcy of
The United States
United States Congressional Record, March 17, 1993
Vol. 33, page H-1303
The Speaker is Rep. James Traficant, Jr. (Ohio) addressing the House:
"Mr. Speaker, we are here now in chapter 11... Members of Congress are official
trustees presiding over the greatest reorganization of any Bankrupt entity in
world history, the U.S. Government. We are setting forth hopefully, a blueprint
for our future. There are some who say it is a coroner's report that will lead
to our demise.
It is an established fact that the United States Federal Government has been
dissolved by the Emergency Banking Act, March 9, 1933, 48 Stat. 1, Public Law
89-719; declared by President Roosevelt, being bankrupt and insolvent. H.J.R.
192, 73rd Congressional session, June 5, 1933 - Joint Resolution To Suspend the
Gold Standard and Abrogate The Gold Clause dissolved the Sovereign Authority of
the United States and the official capacities of all United States Governmental
Offices, Officers, and Departments and is further evidence that the United
States Federal Government exists today in name only.
The receivers of the United States Bankruptcy are the International Bankers, via
the United Nations, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. All
United States Offices, Officials, and Departments are now operating within a de
facto status in name only under Emergency War Powers. With the Constitutional
Republican form of Government now dissolved, the receivers of the Bankruptcy
have adopted a new form of government for the United States. This new form of
government is known as a Democracy, being an established Socialist/Communist
order under a new governor for America. This act was instituted and established
by transferring and/or placing the Office of the Secretary of Treasury to that
of the Governor of the International Monetary Fund. Public Law 94-564, page 8,
Section H.R. 13955 reads in part: "The U.S. Secretary of Treasury receives no
compensation for representing the United States?'
. . . Their lust is for power and control. Since the inception of
central banking, they have controlled the fates of nations.
. . . The Federal Reserve System is a sovereign power structure
separate and distinct from the federal United States government.
. . . Prior to 1913, most Americans owned clear, allodial title to property,
free and clear of any liens or mortgages until the Federal Reserve Act
(1913)"hypothecated" all property within the federal United States to the Board
of Governors of the Federal Reserve, -in which the Trustees (stockholders) held
legal title. The U.S. citizen (tenant, franchisee) was registered as a
"beneficiary" of the trust via his/her birth certificate. In 1933, the federal
United States hypothecated all of the present and future properties, assets and
labor of their "subjects," the 14th Amendment U.S. citizen, to the Federal
In return, the Federal Reserve System agreed to extend the federal United States
corporation all the credit "money substitute" it needed. Like any other debtor,
the federal United States government had to assign collateral and security to
their creditors as a condition of the loan. Since the federal United States
didn't have any assets, they assigned the private property of their "economic
slaves", the U.S. citizens as collateral against the unpayable federal debt.
They also pledged the unincorporated federal territories, national parks
forests, birth certificates, and nonprofit organizations, as collateral against
the federal debt. All has already been transferred as payment to the
Unwittingly, America has returned to its pre-American Revolution, feudal roots
whereby all land is held by a sovereign and the common people had no rights to
hold allodial title to property. Once again, We the People are the tenants and
sharecroppers renting our own property from a Sovereign in the guise of the
Federal Reserve Bank. We the people have exchanged one master for another.
This has been going on for over eighty years without the "informed knowledge" of
the American people, without a voice protesting loud enough. Now it's easy to
grasp why America is fundamentally bankrupt.
Why don't more people own their properties outright?
Why are 90% of Americans mortgaged to the hilt and have little or no assets
after all debts and liabilities have been paid? Why does it feel like you are
working harder and harder and getting less and less?
We are reaping what has been sown, and the results of our harvest is a painful
bankruptcy, and a foreclosure on American property, precious liberties, and a
way of life. Few of our elected representatives in Washington, D.C. have dared
to tell the truth. The federal United States is bankrupt. Our children will
inherit this unpayable debt, and the tyranny to enforce paying it. America has
become completely bankrupt in world leadership, financial credit and its
reputation for courage, vision and human rights. This is an undeclared economic
war, bankruptcy, and economic slavery of the most corrupt order! Wake up
America! Take back your Country."]
[In a chastisement, we can run but we can't hide. Stocks are not a good place, we would say, despite rallies and short-term rise. Treasury Bonds are safe, as long as the government doesn't default, which of course would be cataclysmic anyway. Banks can quickly find themselves in trouble -- witness Wachovia, the nation's third largest savings bank. In Iceland, they closed the door at banks last week, until the government could step in; people could not withdraw. Could this happen here? CDs and regular savings make sense more than speculating. It is not unwise to have some money in actual cash in a safe or safe-deposit box. But what if the value of the dollar collapses? Do we invest in foreign currencies? They too may be troubled. Gold and silver are good, unless we enter a period of deflation. We see that God is our only safe haven. Learning a degree of self-sufficiency and making sure one can live in an independent way for two weeks to a month with food and other essentials seem like prudent items for consideration, no matter what is transpiring. This is all only for your discernment. Mainly, invest in prayer; this is a "return" on which you can find a guarantee.]
