It takes a crook to know a crook
Following is a historical statement by Al Capone, explaining why he would play the ponies but wouldn’t invest a dime on Wall Street: “It’s a racket. Those stock market guys are crooked.”
One has to give it to old Al; he was apparently as astute and perceptive in regard to corrupt economics as he was morally corrupt. That which he so aptly stated in his day in regard to the stock market is true even today; possibly more so. The markets are a racket and the fruits thereof – like those garnered in the nation’s gambling casinos – are transitory and misbegotten. The odds are always in favor of the house dear reader and the house in this regard is a government backed corporate clique that can be likened to a syndicate as venal and corrupt as the mafia ever was, and in fact profoundly more so.
The media, a/k/a our perpetual propaganda machine, would have you believe that a bull market is indicative of a healthy economy and of a productive society. Watching these medium puppets of government - and of the government’s corporatist confederates in economic chicanery - is akin to watching an old Edgar Bergen Mortimer Snerd puppet routine. The ostensible words that fall from the dummy’s mouth - via its manipulator - are profoundly foolish and innately stupid; and the words of the media manipulators of public thought are beamed as fact to a conspicuously ignorant and receptive people. Unlike Edgar Bergen, Mortimer Snerd’s manipulator, these puppeteers are not just amiable entertainers; they are the mouthpiece of a fraudulent collusive collective that is robbing the middle-class taxpayers of this nation blind.
Have you noticed that these media shills for a controlling government have been continually buffeting their viewers, listeners, and readers with a running commentary on minute to minute stock market returns? If you have been paying close attention you will note that when the markets have been stressed by public sell offs of stock they somehow mysteriously rebound and stabilize, often within days and many times within hours. Ah! You exclaim what good fortune now my 401K is safe and my retirement has been delivered from the precipice of disaster, whoopee! I’ll continue to invest. There is a word for such thinking, it is: Gullible! It does indeed seem that the sheep cannot wait to be sheared.
In reality while the media is dutifully ramping up your spirits the powers that be are propping up the markets by ramping up share prices via high volume buying of dumped stocks to create the illusion that shares are - rather than falling as is the case - in fact going up. It’s a rigged hand and even a dummy ought to be able to read the cards that are being dealt. These corporate cheats control the odds in the markets just as a casino owner controls the odds at his tables and games; an ordinary small time investor cannot win in such an environment.
written in the past, and I reiterate, do not gamble in the stock market
if you do not have the funds to absorb monumental losses in order to make
even more spectacular gains. Unlike the corporatists you are not guaranteed
indemnity against loss through government taxpayer-funded bailouts, stimulus
scams, or by an easy acquisition of loads of free Federal Reserve fiat
money. Al Capone was correct your odds are better with the ponies than
with the markets. The great difference between Al Capone and your government
and its economic partners is that the government has granted itself a
license to steal from you; Capone had to operate sans such legitimating
WILL IT BE ECONOMIC FAILURE OR INSURRECTION THAT WILL TOPPLE THIS NATION?
If I were asked to speculate in answer to that question I would be stuck for a reply. It will be one or the other, but I would have to flip a coin and venture a guess as to which it will be. I would have supposed, some months ago, that it would be an economic collapse that would set in motion the destruction of this nation. But with the onset of the current so-called Wall Street Occupation that has seemingly spread from coast to coast I am tentatively revising that notion. And the reason for this revision of thought is the numbers, social makeup, and degree of worth of the protesters involved.
Once again a completely idiotic progressive media is attempting to obfuscate the nature of the occupy rebellion by equating it with the Tea Party movement. This in itself ought to provide a clear picture of the absolute corruptness and dishonesty of the fourth estate. Those having knowledge and spiritual insight know the difference between these two ideological causes, both politically and otherwise.
The Tea Party is comprised of enlightened, articulate, productive, law-abiding and morally responsible people who are seeking a delivery from government encroachment upon their constitutional liberties and a return to governance of and by the people. Their movement is orderly, lawfully conducted, and in accordance with moral precepts. One could walk among Tea Party participants without reservation in regard to their safety and well-being and without being offended by lewd and reprehensible animalistic behavior.
On the other hand…we have in the current inaptly named Occupy Wall Street movement an anarchic aggregate of neo-humanistic rabble without an identifiable objective other than to raise hell and to fornicate. That these inebriate half-wits are breeding in public like rabbits and dogs is in itself cause for consternation relative the anticipated impendent addition of a collection of future social misfits and malcontents to the welfare rolls of the nations’ governments’ troughs.
These people cannot be dignified as peaceful reformists; they are nihilists who would destroy for the sake of destroying. They are a dirty and unkempt collection of misfits and malcontents with no identifiable grievance. What the media has generously postulated, in their behalf, as grievances are in fact social conditions that these have brought upon themselves through irresponsible citizenship. A thoughtful citizen cannot be other than mortified by the crudely artful, inane, and inarticulate comments that are solicited of these dimwits by media agents and then broadcast to the world. Their nearly consistent slovenly appearance adds to the shame; they have the visual aspect of bums at a hobo camp. In actual fact even the bums, as I knew them, were infinitely more dignified.
the impending downfall comes by way of an economic crack-up or by civil
insurrection there will be no recovery. But, hey! You say, “this
nation survived the great depression certainly we can do it again.”
Here is the difference, my friend, and it is a huge difference.
IT IS A MATTER OF NATIONAL CHARACTER
Understand that the circumstances of the approaching collapse will be entirely contrary to the circumstances that were attendant to the great depression. As stated it is entirely a matter of national character. The people of the great depression age had qualities of character that are missing from the majority of the current crop of noodles that populate this nation. In the main the people of the great depression era were possessed of moral soundness, they were industrious and ambitious, they were productive-minded and ethically inclined and sloth and laziness were not a part of their make-up. Above all they had courage, endurance, self-worth, and initiative all of which they used to survive, recover, and re-build. Our present decadent and debased society – when viewed objectively – obviates any hope for such a retrieval of post social stability in the event of an economic collapse.
A REIGN OF BUREAUCRATIC TERRORISM
One has to acknowledge the cleverness of the socialist agents for state ownership of capital and industry and for tyrannical control over human endeavor, and one must also grant that these did in fact seize upon the war on terror to inauspiciously enable a bureaucratic tyranny that far exceeds any threat from external sources.
911 presented a golden opportunity for these adversaries of republicanism to focus the attention of the American people on phantom international causes so as to obscure and cover-up a domestic agenda that included a dismantlement of the Bill of Rights and an emplacement of central totalistic control in the place of constitutional governance.
Indeed one can imagine that these domestic agents of progressive reform consider the untold billions of dollars spent, and the lives expended, in the international chasing of apparitional guerillas through baron territories to be a small price to pay for the successful and final transition of the nation from states’ rights and participatory democracy to absolutism. It is with great astonishment that one comes to the realization that this transformation came about through, and with the complicity of, the political representatives that were elected by the people to protect their freedoms and to preserve them from government tyranny.
LIVING IN DARK DAYS
A dark and ominous specter hovers over this nation. The country currently meets the definition of a police state. Individualism and personal choice are suppressed and bureaucratic hooliganism is rampant. Subjective federal statutes rule over constitutional ensures, and the U.S. judicial system is rapidly being transformed into an arrangement of people’s courts similar to those of the former Soviet Union and the Third Reich. These increasingly jettison objectivity to affirm and enforce state authority over individual rights.
The U.S. Code - consisting of many thousands of arbitrary statutory laws – is an enemy of the people. These statutes are not laws they are mandates that are specifically adaptive to entrapment and control. One cannot get through a day without violating one or more of these so-called laws; they are all inclusive, intrusive, and invasive to every segment of day to day existence. They comprise a virtual web of controlling measures that enables containment of personal freedoms, and they were specifically drafted to that purpose. The U.S. Code as it exists separates the people from their inherent God-given liberties.
AL CAPONE WOULD HAVE BEEN ENVIOUS OF THE POWER AND IMMUNITY FROM PROSECUTION THAT GOVERNMENT AGENTS POSSESS
The Department of Justice has become a rat’s nest of sinister intrigue and malfeasance – indeed the Obama/Holder union and appurtenant minions have all the appearances of a crime consortium. Political gangsterism runs like a thread through the Department of Justice and the malfeasance of the agencies and agents thereof runs the gamut of questionable – if not outright criminal activities; gun-running, subversion of justice, illegal hiring practices and perjury before congressional committees come immediately to mind.
That none have been prosecuted, censored, reprimanded or dismissed for such causes seems to convey the message that these miscreants are beyond any form of accountability or reproof for their blatant in your face infractions. Holder lies in the face of congressional committee members then gives them a virtual middle-finger when they call into question his prevarications. The U.S. Code contains a silly statute that makes it a crime for a citizen to lie to an F.B.I. agent, but the agents and officers of the various agencies within the Department of Justice seem to be able to lie to congressional investigators with impunity. There is something wrong with that scenario, don’t you think?
SATAN IS ALIVE AND WELL
“Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them. And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.” -Job 1:6-7
This scripture brings to mind the days when my Dad who might suspect me of some chicanery of one kind or another would make a similar inquiry, to which he would invariably add, “And don’t you lie to me, bud.” It wasn’t necessary for God to add such an addendum to his query of Satan, certainly the omniscient Lord knew where Satan had been and what he had been up to. And if we have been in the spirit and paying attention so do we. The power and influence of the prince of darkness are clearly evident in the works of men.

The corruptness of our people, of our system, and of our leaders makes it exceedingly clear that Satan walks among us. He is indeed the god of this fallen world and the nations of it, including the United States. Every lie that is uttered, every crime that is committed, every inhumanity that is fostered, and injustice that is perpetrated bears witness to his presence among us. He is in fact the titular head of this nation, and the members of the three branches of government do his bidding.
If you love this nation and things of this world above the Lord the love of God is not in you; your corrupt bones will fall among the ashes when comes the fiery end.
If you believe: “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” -Matthew 28:19-20
