What is Truth?

3/15/2013 Portland, Oregon – Pop in your mints…

Our latest E-book in the “Why what we use as Money Matters” series: What is Truth?  On the Nature of Empire, has now shipped and will soon arrive on digital shelves across the Internet.

What is Truth?  On the Nature of EmpireIn the twenty first century, it has become clear to most that there is no divine right or imperative for the existence of an Empire on the earth. As such, an ever-increasing number of peoples have thrown off the yoke of Empire in favor of what has become known as a democratic model of collective governance. Yet simply changing the rules of governance has not put an end to the core ideals of Empire, and governments today that are elected democratically have largely retained the hallmarks of Imperial rule, namely the tendencies toward a central monopoly on the use of force and the right to demand tribute. How can this be?

The purpose of this volume is to gain an understanding of the true nature of Empire and, to convince the reader that Empire, and by extension large scale government, is not only unnecessary, but a great hindrance to human progress. This volume also explores why the Imperial model virtually ensures that the worst elements of humanity will rise to power, where they will ultimately impose their will on their fellow humans by violence. For the violent outcomes that Empires invariably produce are not exceptions to the rule, nor are they merely the norm.

They are literally guaranteed by design.

Once we have grasped the true nature of Empire, we will then will explore the only known antidote to Empire and the only possible means for mankind to rid itself of the lethal effects of Empire on the earth. And it is probably like anything you have imagined.

It is now available and can be enjoyed on SmashwordsAmazon’s Kindle, and Google Books.

Stay tuned and Trust Jesus.

3 Months After The MF Global Bankruptcy, We Find That $1.2 Billion (Or More) In Client Money Has “Vaporized” | ZeroHedge

More on the missing MF GLOBAL client funds, why justice will never be served, and why our current monetary system is at best an illusion and, more accurately, a fraud.

The same, crystal clear money trails which are used to incriminate alleged terrorists, identity thieves, tax evaders, and drug runners are somehow blurred when members of the political and financial elite are involved in the theft.

It is also clear that numbers on a bank or brokerage statement are subject to “vaporization” without cause, justice, or recourse.

Disturbing economic trends continue into 2012

1/9/2012 Portland, Oregon – Pop in your mints…

2012 has gotten off to a relatively uneventful start on all fronts.  Stock and Bond markets continue on autopilot and are completely underwritten by central banks at this point.  Commodity prices seem to be following the inflationary path that the central banks support of the stock and bond markets has set them on.  Meanwhile, productivity, real output, appears stable and poised to climb, which should further fuel inflation as the money supply begins to overwhelm the supply of real goods and labor.

The assault on civil liberties continues.  The United States surrendered its status as a free country when it approved the NDAA, assuring that they government could detain anyone, anywhere, for as long as they want, without ever having to produce charges.

 

 

 

Finally, widespread corruption continues unabated.  Officials at MF Global are still loose after robbing $1.2 billion of client funds in a desperate attempt to stave off a margin call which brought down the firm as the CME washed its hands of the situation, leaving traders everywhere wondering if their univested brokerage funds are safe or even truly exist.

Now, from Switzerland, the bastion of financial morality, comes word that the wife of Philipp Hildebrand, now former Chairman of its central bank, made a substantial purchase of US Dollars just weeks before her husband and his colleagues shocked the world by surrendering the Swiss franc to the same fate as the doomed Euro.  Coincidence?  It would appear not.

In short, there is nothing in the data to disprove the hypothesis that the world’s financial system and by default the nations which are currently charged with it are headed to hell in a hand basket. 

This, fellow taxpayers, should be cause for hope.  For only when it is acutely understood by all involved the incredible destruction which is being wrought every single day by the current, insane, “debt is money” financial system under which we live, can things finally begin to get better.

 

We hope and pray that the day of collective acute understanding is near, and that the transition to a new system passes peacefully.

 

Stay tuned and Trust Jesus.

COMEX: The March to Irrelevance

A very thorough explanation of the emerging irrelevance of the COMEX due to the permanent beach of trust highlighted in the MF Global fiasco.

Essentially the claim is that JP Morgan, in its rush to seize collateral, stole the precious metals held in COMEX vaults which rightfully belong to MF Global clients.

This is what is generally referred to as theft.  However, the banking elites, who reserve the right to steal for themselves, prefer to call it “rehypothetication,” which simply means that something is pledged as collateral a second time.  In this case, MF Global pledged the same collateral to their clients and JP Morgan.

When push came to shove, guess who MF Global and the CME Group (the owner of the soon to be defunct COMEX) threw under the bus?

It is becoming painfully obvious that the degree of fraud and theft required to keep the bankrupt financial system running is reaching a crescendo. What will December 31 bring?

Readers are advised to convert their paper assets to something tangible before their account becomes the victim of another bankrupt Wall Street firm’s margin call.
