INFLATION AND THE FEDERAL RESERVE
It�s about time Americans woke up to the fact that their future is intricately woven into the web of a black widow spider called �The Federal Reserve.� Just as the black widow has jaws and fangs that spring out of it and inject a poison that is 15 times that of a rattle snake, so too does the Federal Reserve have jaws and fangs. The best way to explain it is that it is not federal (the jaws) and it has no reserves (the poison). The name, however, IMPLIES that it is federal and that they have endless streams of money to lend to the American government. They do not.
The Federal Reserve Act was passed at 11:45 p.m. on Christmas Eve, after all the opposing Senators had gone home to celebrate Christmas. Those who wanted the Federal Reserve had a quorum and passed the legislation in an unprecedented move. At the time, Congressman McFadden gave testimony in the House when he said,
In other words, the Federal Reserve Bank is a private corporation that controls the entire monetary and financial system of the United States. As such, it is not part of our government but controls it through creating highs and lows in the business cycle. What that means is that a small group of insiders can �buy low and sell high� while the rest of us �hold.� This is a direct transfer of wealth from us to them! Furthermore, every time our government borrows from this monopoly, they print money out of the thin air and charge us interest. Unfortunately those who think money grows on trees have no idea that it only pertains to a few well placed thieves. The inflation and economic imbalances that we are hearing about are not created by us but they are created by the system which has been foisted upon us by deceit and deception.
The money lenders, in order to give themselves access to the rest of the chickens in the chicken coop, had to eliminate the gold system which our monetary system was based on because a gold system can�t inflate money endlessly. As a result of the created depression in 1929, President Roosevelt took that opportunity to completely change our entire political and economic system. Again, the testimony of the Honorable Louis T. McFadden explains,
Two of the steps include taking the common man off the gold standard and relying on British economist John Maynard Keynes. Shortly after Roosevelt was sworn in as President, he instructed the banks not to convert the gold backed dollars which our government used to print before the Federal Reserve was created that our parents and grandparents held into gold. In addition, all gold that they might have held was confiscated. However, Roosevelt allowed foreign country�s who held our gold-backed certificates to cash them in for gold up until President Nixon closed the �gold window� in 1971. British economist and Fabian socialist, John Maynard Keynes, told Roosevelt that the best way to get out of the depression was to borrow. Today, 73 years later, we have a Federal deficit of $12T. Every level of government is broke: local, county, state, and federal. Thanks to Keynes economic successor, Frederic von Hayek who advocated that government sell their assets to help pay down their debt. Governments are not only selling their assets but are entering into partnerships with corporations which are called public-private partnerships-PPP. PPP�s do not allow for representative government since the structure of government is being changed and there is no recourse for injustice.
When Nixon closed the gold window in 1971, he not only took the strongest country in the world off the gold standard, but that act succeeded in changing the entire monetary system of the world. No longer would the finances of any country in the world be tied to gold which prevented them from spending more than they had, but it opened the door for the black widow spider to weave a web of debt and place the people of the world inside the web by a small group of evil-intended international bankers who have no problem in stealing from their own grandmother. Furthermore, as Congressman McFadden testified, the Federal Reserve and the Bank for International Settlements could and did present American gold certificates for payment in the gold that used to belong to the individuals that Roosevelt confiscated gold from. He further testified,
Then, in 1980, President Carter passed the Monetary De-Regulation Act which de-regulated the amount of interest banks charged and paid. Instead of charging and paying a required amount of interest, banks can now pay and charge �market rates.� Today, people are being paid 2% on their savings while they are being charged up to 21% to 25% for borrowing! Then under President Reagan, the tax laws were changed so that you and I can�t deduct interest paid from the amount of taxes owed. In response, the banking system came up with the idea of having people spend the �equity� in their home through �home equity lines of credit.� Interestingly enough, these loans are tax-deductible. I don�t know what these people are going to do when the government eliminates any kind of interest on home loans and lines of credit. Does anyone see the intricate weave of the black widow spider yet?
Now add in the Nasdaq crash which wiped out $7T in investments and savings. In response, the Federal Reserve reduced interest rates to 45 year lows of 1% in June, 2004. This achieved the unbelievable. People who were constrained by the amount they could borrow determined they could live like kings in the BIGGER home and went out and borrowed MORE as they moved up. Since interest on home equity lines of credit is based on prime, it became reasonable to build up a tremendous amount of debt based on the rising �equity� in the residential property.
Then after sufficient Americans have followed their pipe dreams and increased their debt, Greenspan announced the Fed needed to rein in inflation and interest rates began rising. Just the other day, his successor, Ben Bernanke raised interest rates for the 15th time to 4.75%. Stating that �further policy firming may be needed,� it is the intent of the Fed to �keep the lid on inflation.� Oh yeah? Let�s talk about inflation.
What is inflation? According to geo-political expert Terry Hayfield, capitalism is inflationary all by itself. Capitalism, which is an �ism� like socialism, Marxism, or Fabian socialism, is the economic philosophy of the international bankers. Capitalism has to be in constant motion. It has to constantly have a new product, a new market, a new buyer. Without it, capitalism will deflate and go into depression. Furthermore, how are you going to buy the product that capitalism produces? You are going to pay for it with a Federal Reserve Note�which was printed up like any other piece of paper. The act of printing up a piece of paper which becomes �a dollar� is inflationary because it was not there before you wanted to buy. It comes into being as you spend money which the Fed does not have to begin with. However, the Fed charges the Federal government interest on all the money in the banking system. Are you smelling the coffee yet?
In other words, when you BORROW monies to buy the house, the car, the dress, the motorboat, you are borrowing money you did not have and money which did not exist before your demand. Furthermore, you are borrowing it at usurious rates. Hayfield explains, �Every time the Federal Reserve CREATES money to meet a demand, it is inflationary!!!� Do you get it?
The truth of the matter is that our system is based on money being created according to our demand and then our paying it back at Mafia levels of interest to a bunch of evil people who will literally skin you alive to get every since cent you have.
What is our response? To play their game. Since capitalism needs a new product and continuous demand at all times, to trump them is to reduce our buying to necessities and to stop charging. Turn in your Wal-Mart, Penny�s, Sears, Nordstrom�s, Neiman-Marcus and Discover, MasterCard and Visa cards. Write them nice letters stating that you can no longer afford to pay 21% interest and that you are closing your account. Start using cash and start living within your means. If we do that, we can trump these evil doers who are waiting for us to buy Chinese products that are building up the Chinese army.
Next, pay down what you owe and keep your cards closed! Take any excess that you have, when you have it and pay down your mortgage. If you are living in the BIG house, sell it and move to a smaller house while you can. If you have a pretty substantial home equity line of credit, remember that you still owe that debt and putting it into your mortgage is not smart but dangerous. Do what you have to in order to pay it off. If you have money in your 401k, borrow it out. If you have an asset that you could sell, sell it and eliminate that home equity loan.
In addition, start buying products from your friends who sell Nikken, Amway, and Avon, etc. Buy from only private corporations that are not part of the system.
The world has entered the final stages of rape, robbery and pillaging by the central bankers. The whole economic infrastructure of the world has been primed for them to grab. How will they do it? They will use the excuse of inflation to literally squeeze us like turnips. Inflation is a joke on us. Every time we spend, we are creating inflation since our employer probably had to borrow to pay the payroll because they are waiting for others to buy their products. Get yourself out of the system as much as possible. Remember that McFadden was testifying on the heels of the Great Depression and the confiscation of gold. He rightly states our plight:
above paragraph is prophetic because it describes what has and is
occurring. Every time a company goes bankrupt, this will be the effect.
For those of you who are in the process of being retired from General
Motors or Delphi, this describes where you are going to go. Lastly,
every single person in elected government should be tried for treason
because they have committed an abomination to the people of the United
States for allowing the Federal Reserve to continue.

The people of these United States are being greatly wronged. They have been driven from their employments. They have been dispossessed from their homes. They have been evicted from their rented quarters. They have lost their children.
