Reading the Signs Worse Than Expected

by Fred Marshall Jr.
November 21, 2008

It's a good bet that 30% of the articles I've written over the past 10-12 years are lost for all time because I haven't been diligent in archiving them or even always keeping master copies. I write when something prompts me to write, or I feel a need to inform others of something I suspect the majority doesn't know, or I get an idea I think's worth sharing. So, when I refer to something I've said earlier, I do it from memory, not from going back and finding when and where I previously stated something.

That said, I recall that several months back the signs led me to suggest the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) would likely fall as low as 7,000. Many laughed. The term "conspiracy theorist" was bandied about. The signs now lead me to project the DJIA may well drop to 6,000 before spring, maybe even before Christmas. Things are going to hell in a battered hand basket faster than I had expected, frankly faster than even most of the so-called experts have predicted. But I don't see any way to prevent such a fall. So many aspects of the economy are so intricately interwoven that when one thing falls it knocks down three or four or more other nearby or related things. It's almost like an elephant in a china store.

When new housing starts slow significantly, no one can expect carpet or paint sales to pick up. When a national chain closes 50 stores and scrubs 5,000 jobs, the unemployment rate doesn't go down, it goes up. So, what happens when a large number of the national brands that are household words go belly-up....when the leading auto makers are losing their hineys....when banks long thought to be rock-solid are dropping like flies.... when the companies which are staying afloat have their phones answered in New Delhi, India, because they aren't employing many Americans....when stocks worth $100,000 a year ago are worth $5,000 today....when defaults on auto loans are up 40%....when twice as many home mortgages are 90 days past due as at this time a year ago....when the public learns the $700 billion in bailout money isn't going to be used for the purposes its promoters promised it would....when consumer and investor confidence is in the toilet....when word spreads that a new presumed president-elect may not even be a natural-born citizen (and thus not ELIGIBLE to run, let alone serve)....when that same presumed president-elect has promised sweeping changes, yet is progressively announcing appointments of some of the very people who were up to their ears participating heavily in creating the financial crisis we face....when people can hardly find anything positive to talk about? I'll tell you what happens, the stock market TANKS. Start getting used to seeing numbers beginning with sevens and then sixes.

If you don't already have your money out of banking institutions now, you don't have many days left to get it out, and may not even be able to get it out Monday. U.S. minted gold coin (purity known) is hard to come by now, though some quantities can still be purchased directly from the mint. The urgent thing right now is to have access to your MONEY. The dollar shouldn't totally collapse for a while yet.

Eighteen months ago I advised a lady my age to get completely out of the stock market, but she insisted she was in for the long haul, her retirement security was spread in "diversified" stocks she said. Today, her million dollars are worth less than two hundred grand, and she's still holding on. She'll be lucky to cash in $50,000 when she musters the courage to cut her losses. At her age, she may end up on welfare.

People don't look, they don't observe, they think "it can't happen here," and even when they see they don't comprehend. It's really disheartening to see the stubbornness in people who are really smart enough to know better. Everything that doesn't fit the molds they've had created in their minds by our miserably-failed education system, they quickly label as "conspiracy theories" and dismiss conspicuous truth out of hand.

The Germans kept meticulously-detailed records of everything way back in the 1930s, and yet today technology permits, even encourages, the permanent keeping of even the minutest of seemingly unimportant information. Everything that moves, besides us, has a radio-frequency identification chip in it, everything from shavers to riding lawn mowers and everything in between. Everything we buy at WalMart, and most other places, has the tracking chip embedded in it. It won't be long before we'll have them in our bodies. The mechanisms to track and control everything are all in place, and soon there will be no privacy at all in this country.

What people fail to realize is that when all the foreclosures on homes, farms and businesses occurred during the Great Depression, the titles to all that property ended up in the hands of the bankers. They had financed them all with "money" they created out of thin air, with NOTHING, and then in exchange for nothing, they suddenly owned millions of acres of land and countless homes, buildings, equipment, etc., which they eventually sold again. The same thing is going on now. Despite pressure from the government upon lenders to give borrowers maximum leeway, foreclosures continue to mount, quietly shifting into the hands of banks. And who is being "bailed out" (read enriched) by the government with the people's money? You've got it, the BANKERS. The plan worked to perfection in the 1930's and it's working again, only this time it's on a far grander scale. It's called a "transfer of wealth." What it really is, is "serfdom."

Government's law enforcement agencies have equipment and technology most people would call "futuristic" or "science-fiction" because they cannot imagine that such stuff actually exists and might be used on the people. Take a look at some of these samples.

It's just so frustrating to see all the things I see and to know how few Americans even have a clue what goes on in the world they inhabit. It's really frustrating. But, at my age, about all I can do is yell at the top of my lungs and hope for the best.

Obama's attorneys seek protection from citizenship challenge

Press release on Philip Berg's lawsuit challenging Obama's citizenship. Berg claims Obama was borne in Kenya and has asked the court to order the production of documents. Instead of producing the documents that, if they exist, would end the lawsuit, Obama's defense (joined by the DNC) filed a motion to dismiss and then has asked the court to issue a protective order protecting them from having to comply with any production order. That tells its own story...the documents do not exist. Obama is not a United States Citizen. The media are doing their damnedest to suppress this story.

The media successfully helped John Kerry hide his bad conduct discharge from the Navy, the one he later had upgraded to honorable under Jimmy Carter's Amnesty program for the Vietnam era, and now they're trying to get a non-citizen fraudulently elected President. How many conspirators do you suppose it takes to pull these shenanigans off? What's next in this screwed-up world of confusion?


Obama Crimes - Website overlaps, but some things you can make out

Berg is "Outraged" that Obama & DNC Hide Again Behind Legal Issues as their attorney files a Motion for Protective Order to "not" Answer Admissions & Production of Documents while Betraying Public in not Producing Documents proving Obama is "qualified" to be a candidate for President.

The Silver Lining

There's One in Every Cloud

As parents, teachers, professionals, advisors, mentors, role models, or laymen, most of us take great pride in being right when we advise others. Being wrong can be embarrassing.

Over the past few days I have devoted about three hours daily to sorting out and organizing articles I have written since 2004 so I can eventually archive the pieces on a website. I've reviewed a bunch of them already this week and am frankly quite surprised at how many things have come to pass pretty much as I described in advance.

No one knows better than I how much I hope and pray I am wrong, that things will work out much better than available evidence suggests they will. I pray that every day. My country, its future and the future of my family are far more important than my pride or reputation. I sincerely hope things will work out far better than I have projected.

Most of what I see and discuss is available to anyone willing to look. I spend very little time reading the opinions of others, and instead focus attention to looking at events, evidence and indicators. When I see an auto parked in a driveway with its hood just inside the open garage door, I can be reasonably confident that the next time it moves it will be backing up. Then when I subsequently see a vandal place a pile of broken glass and nails under the right rear tire, it's a good bet the driver will not notice. Therefore, predicting a flat tire within the next 24 hours is not a feat of's a matter of finding and interpreting the evidence.

I realize that most readers don't have the time I have to research and examine things. For too long now, such people have unfortunately relied upon the mainstream media to do the scouring and digging and reporting the important news to them. The media have realized this awesome power to influence people and mold opinions, and have methodically betrayed listeners and viewers by using their ability to indoctrinate, propagandize, and gradually brainwash their audiences. I, and countless other truth-seekers, try to be just one offset that sheds light into the darkness of misinformation and disinformation that bombards the general population every day.

My successes may be few, but I take pride in a few stories that find their way back to me over time. I'd like to tell you about just one of them.

A few days ago three ladies were out campaigning for a candidate who is running to fill the seat of a retiring elected official. They knocked on my older son's door and were invited in. One of the ladies is a professional and the other two are stay-at-home-moms. When she realized my son's name is the same as mine (I'm Jr. and he's III), she told him that his father (me) had written her a letter about ten years ago that changed her life and had increased her income considerably. She said she has re-read the letter about every six months ever since then. When he told me her name and profession, I remembered, though I have not seen her since writing the letter.

Some ten years ago I had occasion to discuss some business with her. We had been total strangers before that day. She was in a threesome business partnership with two men and, before I departed her place of business, our conversation had gone beyond what I was there for and I'd learned in some detail a few of the frustrating difficulties she encountered in her uncommon partnership arrangement. So when I returned home, I wrote a letter to her proposing a strategy, and outlining some specific steps and actions I believed would improve her relationships with her partners, and suggested ways to increase her business and profit.

So now I'm quite curious. Though I don't recall the contents of my letter, I plan to call her tomorrow and ask for a copy of it. I'm now eager to know what I told her ten years ago and, more specifically, I want to know whether or not the advice I gave her then was the same I would offer today under the same or similar circumstances. I'm betting it is.

Life has many rewards whose values cannot be expressed in dollars and cents or even by any tangible measurement. A high school classmate said, as he emceed our class reunion in 1995, "If a man has a woman he loves, and who loves him, and work he enjoys, then he need ask for no more in life." I never managed any long-term success on the loving woman aspect, but I have always loved the work I have chosen throughout my life. At least I am half-lucky, huh? I wish all of you get to experience just half the happiness I have enjoyed in my lifetime; if you do, you will be lucky indeed.

For Want of a Nail

by Fred Marshall Jr.
October 8, 2008

For want of a nail rhyme

In the movie 'The Hunt For Red October,' Alec Baldwin is seen wondering out loud to himself while shaving aboard the USS Enterprise, 'What would make a crew WANT to get off a nuclear submarine?'

In similar fashion, one might wonder 'What events could destroy the economy and currency of the United States, and were such events accidental or contrived?' Many Americans have certainly given those questions some deep thought.

We know the flawed mechanism which provided the setting is the debt ponzi scheme that is our unconstitutional monetary system. The first major chink in the armor of the lending market came with Jimmy Carter's 1977 'Community Reinvestment Act (CRA)' which forced banks to make loans to borrowers who didn't meet normal minimum standards of creditworthiness, but who were classified as belonging to 'communities of color.'

The Act was structured to give enforcement authority to four bureaucracies (the Federal Reserve, the Comptroller of the Currency, the Office of Thrift Supervision, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation) at least two of which are not legal agencies of the federal government. The law provided that any one of these agencies can prohibit or postpone any bank merger, bank expansion, or even opening of a new branch if the Act's "quotas" have not been met, based upon complaints from any community group. That allowed "community groups," such as ACORN, to extort banks and blackmail the government into bestowing federal grants upon them.

Chink number two provided the landscape. Despite the knowledge (gained from years of administering the destructive loan programs) that such massive, irresponsible lending to unqualified borrowers would eventually collapse the system, Bill Clinton nevertheless forced the parameters to be expanded and the lending to be stepped up. What we are seeing now could have been seen coming from a mile away way back then, by anyone willing to take even a cursory look at the numbers; and we know at least four bureaucracies and a three presidents WERE looking at those figures all along.

In late 1999, knowing full well where the program was heading, Fannie Mae (under the stewardship of "friend of Obama" Franklin Raines) moved to loosen credit rules even further than they already had been relaxed. This opened the floodgates for more bad, or I should say worse, loans to be made not only to unqualified American borrowers but to unqualified ILLEGAL ALIENS as well.

Meanwhile, Alfonso Johnson (head of HUD and "friend of Obama") joined Fannie Mae and the Congressional Black Caucus by pushing legislation that reduced, and in some cases eliminated, the requirement for down payments, and also pushed rule changes that made it much harder for enforcement to detect and pursue perpetrators of fraud in lending.

Fannie Mae CEO calling Obama and the Dems the "Family" and "Conscience" of Fannie Mae

Do you believe that any soundly-managed bank would, absent government interference, make mortgage loans to borrowers they know going in cannot possibly repay them? Of course not.

Well, that's precisely what the privately-owned, non-government Federal Reserve and the United States Government have conspired, for more than 20 years, to do and they have done it. More than ONE TRILLION DOLLARS in bad loans, backed by Mac and Mae, have been made, including 5ive million loans to illegal aliens. If one believes government figures on the number of illegal aliens in the U.S. (12 to 20 million), then not only has the government encouraged illegals to flock here, it has looked the other way as they were coming in but, once they are here and established, the government has sought them out and given one in four of them government-backed loans (government-backed means the government promises that you and I will pay for the defaults). That's like Archie lending Bill's lawn mower to Charles.

If you were a woman who had gone to a beauty shop which put the wrong chemicals on your hair, chemicals so strong they burned the roots so badly that your hair fell out and could never grow back, would you then send your 16-year-old daughter to the same beauty shop the following week?

Well, that's precisely what the American people will be doing if they elect Barack Obama in November. Electing John McCain doesn't hold much promise either.

Why do we send people to Congress in the first place? Isn't a little oversight one of the things we expect of them? Don't we expect a little oversight from the mainstream media? Are they telling us that it's likely Obama isn't even a U.S. Citizen? No. Are they telling us of his close connections with many of the key players who helped create the conditions which brought this crisis about? Are they telling us of McCain's Keating 5ive swindles?

No, they're telling us that everything bad happened under the current president's "watch" when it is clear that the pot was put on the stove during Jimmy Carter's watch and has been boiling steadily through the presidencies of Ronald Reagan, Bush the Elder, Bill Clinton and, now, Bush Junior. We need to start seeing reality and calling spades spades. We don't have a qualified candidate for President in either the Democratic or Republican Parties.

Politicians and government officials, parroted by the media, changed "bailout" to "rescue." Now they are carefully shifting from "depression" to "recession." Every time Bush, Bernanke or Paulson speaks, the stock market drops. Today it dropped 200 points within 15 minutes after Paulson stammered and fumbled with questions he was asked.

Unemployment is rising like baking dough. Home burglaries and robberies of small businesses are already on the upswing. The government is promising to bail everybody out, everybody but us, the poor working stiffs they're robbing. Thousands of us have been predicting this for years. Millions haven't heard a word we've said.

For want of a little conscientious oversight by the people, a nation is lost. I hope at least some of you are ready. I, for one, am not thrilled at the possibility of going down the tubes with the lazy, apathetic masses who've laid on their fat azzes and stuffed their faces while our nation has been burning.

To all who may be interested - Berg's Obama suit

From: Fred Marshall: (fredmarshall dot csm dot ret at gmail dot com)

To all who may be interested:

There has been a flury of internet reports that a judge in ED PA ordered Obama to produce his birth certificate. This is not true. I checked the docket sheet and the current status of the case is that Berg filed an opposition to the DNC Motion to Dismiss and also filed a motion to admend his complaint. Neither the motion to dismiss nor the motion to amend has been ruled upon as of today. Thus, there is no order.

But today, 10/7/2008, an intervenor filed a motion to intervene and petition for a mandamus. The intervenor has a concurrent case in DC. I have downloaded the intervenor's filing and attached it here for your purusal. If any of the allegations contained in the intervenor's filing is true, we are heading towards a major constitutional problem with Obama.

The Unraveling - Close up!

A Little Salt for Georgia
Associated Press - September 30, 2008
Tuscaloosa, AL - Authorities arrested University of Alabama head coach Nick Saban in the predawn hours Monday at his home in Tuscaloosa on animal cruelty charges. Saban, 56, was charged with 85 counts of animal cruelty in an alleged attack which occurred Saturday night in Athens, Georgia. Police said that as many as 92,138 witnesses saw Saban and a large group of violent young men under his control hit, kick, crush and destroy a large pack of mostly-docile bulldogs. One officer was quoted as saying, "I haven't seen dogs treated this badly since the Michael Vick case."

The Unraveling
by Fred Marshall Jr.
October 6, 2008

Nobody would be happier than I should my assessments of the economy, the dollar, the government, and the future prove to be wrong. Nobody. I'm not gleefully reveling at the prospect of a macabre unraveling of my beloved country. Despite nursing a sluggish mind in my old age, even I am smart enough to know that if you pour water into a container long enough, the container will overflow. Moreover, when you pour 850 billion metric tons of water into an already-overflowing container, lots of things that aren't supposed to will get wet.

Perhaps I should begin by quoting from a piece I wrote a dozen years ago:

"Politicians and governments pursue strategies and policies they believe will keep them in power, and they adopt techniques designed to perpetually increase their power over the people. By definition, then, they must continually work against the best interests of the people, to weaken the voice of the people and to reduce the people's influence. Should they do anything that could possibly strengthen the voice of the people, it would necessarily diminish their own power. In plain words, we mistakenly believe we 'elect' people to represent us and look out for our best interests when, in fact, we willingly send people to legislatures to deliberately screw us." - Fred Marshall Jr.

Let's begin with the presidential campaigns and the rapidly-approaching election. Qualifications and ideologies notwithstanding, third party candidates haven't a prayer of being elected. The lamestream media won't allow them any significant public exposure and, in what little exposure they do permit, they subtly disparage them in every way possible.

That leaves us with the Democratic and Republican Parties' nominees. Both of them were selected by "the men behind the curtain" (Rothschilds, Rockefellers and the stockholders of the privately-owned Federal Reserve) and they will control the "winner" as their puppet. Considering what we know about the vulnerability of the no-paper-trail electronic voting machines, it's a good bet the "winner" is already known by the insiders.

The media have all the dirt they need to destroy McCain at will. Obama operatives and media whores have descended upon Alaska (the "frozen chosen") and have left no stone unturned trying to dig up dirt on Sarah Palin. The public thus knows far more about her than they know about the media-created Messiah, Barack Hussein Obama (not sure that's his official name).

Make-Believe Maverick - A long read, but very insightful - and scary

Pennsylvania attorney Philip J. Berg, in his own behalf as a registered Democrat voter, has filed suit in federal court challenging the citizenship of Barack Obama, aka Barry Soetero, aka Barry Obama, aka Barack Dunham, aka Barry Dunham (so if he is elected, maybe we can call him "President What's-his-name"?). Berg has named the Democratic National Committee and the National Elections Commission as co-defendants.

The case is very interesting, and I must set the record straight regarding some incorrect information I dispatched earlier, not knowing it was flawed. The suit WAS filed, and Attorney Berg prepared his proposed order for the signature of the judge. So far as I can tell, the judge did not sign the proposed order. Instead, the defense filed a lengthy Motion to Dismiss, and Mr. Berg filed his 35-page reply and brief in opposition to the Motion to Dismiss. If anything has happened subsequent to that, I am not aware of it.

There seems to be a significant body of evidence which puts Obama's citizenship in question, which makes us wonder why this matter wasn't cleared up in advance by the DNC and the FEC. Exceptionally telling is the basis for their Motion to Dismiss; instead of producing the documents requested, they challenge the court's jurisdiction. Does that suggest the documents don't exist? You bet it does.

Documents pertaining to the case are attached (courtesy of well-known Huntsville, Alabama attorney Larry Becraft), as membership to PACER is needed to access them online. Some of the exhibits Berg filed appear to buttress the claim that Obama is a Muslim.

Fannie Mae CEO calling Obama and the Dems the "Family" and "Conscience" of Fannie Mae

The bottom line is that it won't really make any difference which one is "elected."

Now for today's events, the economy, and the dollar.

Rather than discuss and evaluate today's record plunge in the stock market, the increased demand for gold, and take a stab at what these events portend, it's more productive to understand that what we saw today was carefully PLANNED, and it's just the beginning....the beginning of the end for many Americans.

To properly condition the readers' minds for what WILL occur, not later than March 15, 2009, imagine what would happen if the Supreme Court were to rule tomorrow that all mortgage instruments (promissory notes, security deed notes, etc.) are NULL and VOID, for some obscure legal reason. Suddenly, without warning, every lending institution which holds mortgages on real property would be left holding the proverbial "bag." Everyone who owes "money" on their homes, commercial properties, and rental properties would instantly own them free and clear, and their accounts would be marked "paid in full." Millions of people would have thus "stolen" tens of billions from banks, would they not?

Then imagine what will happen if the reverse occurs....if the dollar is suddenly declared worthless (that's precisely what is planned). Instantly, every financial holding that is in dollar denomination will be worth NOTHING. Whether it is in the form of dollar currency, bank cashier's checks, traveler's cheques, money orders, pension plans, 401k plans, checking and savings accounts, certificates of deposit, money market accounts, and so on, it will be gone. They will all evaporate in the blink of an eye. The value of what people holding any of these will have will be essentially the same as holding a package of notebook paper in their hands....NOTHING. The banks that owe you money (your deposits), and those previously obligated to redeem your dollar instruments, will have their "accounts" marked "paid in full." The banks will have thus "stolen" tens of billions of dollars from the people, will they not?

Economic Collapse - The American Dollar Is Dead - 6 min

The way FDR explained to Americans that the government had stolen $140 billion from them in 1933 following the historical "bank holiday." In buying power, that was more than a trillion of today's dollars. Correction, last month's dollars (they're worth much less now). We've been hearing other versions of the same BS for more than a week. Before you "gobble it up," count your money.

The day Americans went broke - 8 minute audio of FDR's radio address

Why is this important, why has it been planned this way, and who benefits?

The Federal Reserve, a privately-owned (non government) cartel of international bankers, has profited tens of TRILLIONS of dollars from indoctrinated (and thus unsuspecting) Americans since the illegal, unconstitutional Federal Reserve Act was clandestinely passed in the late-night hours on the eve of Christmas Eve, 1913. They have defrauded an entire nation for nearly a century. They have gradually inflated the currency until the 100-cent 1913 dollar has been systematically debased to the current 2-cent 2008 dollar. With this plan (collapse the dollar and issue the Amero), all their obligations will be miraculously "paid in full." They can issue the Amero and start over, debt-free. That's why it was planned, and that's why it will happen. Obviously, the banking cartel and the very rich will benefit.

For the time being, average folks are temporarily safe IF they have withdrawn their money from banks. Dollars will stand up for a while, though the $850 billion being pumped into the world economy will result in our paying more for what we buy than we have been accustomed to paying. When the runs on the banks occur - - and I'm confident they will occur within this week - - people who have their dollars secured elsewhere will be spared for the moment. But time is short. That currency should be used to pay off debts, or toward debts, and convert to gold and/or silver, or to buy "things" which can later be sold for Ameros.

Gold has gotten scarce these past two-three weeks. European gold is being retained in Europe just in case the dollar's collapse dominoes to the Euro. If anyone knows where certified gold and silver are available, please let me know so I can share the info with my lists. Obviously, not everyone will be able to find and acquire gold and silver. The next best thing is to put your dollars into valuable assets that cannot be erased by erasing the dollar. Pay your house and car off, and buy "things."

Keep in mind that when a bank run starts, the bank doors will close within half a day. Banks only have enough cash on hand to handle their normal day-to-day transactions. If a typical small bank's daily transactions run, say, $40,000 to $50,000, then it would be able to handle your withdrawing $60,000 in cash from your savings account. They could give you a cashier's check, but where would you cash it, considering that other banks operate the same way?

What will be the impact on the economy where you live? Businesses which cannot get loans to keep their operations afloat will have to close or at least lay off some employees and cut back production and services. People laid off will still have bills to pay but won't have incomes. Look for businesses to stop accepting credit cards and even debit cards (fearing the bank might fail before they get their money). Crime will go through the roof. Many people who need (or want) but do not "have," will resort to stealing. That means muggings, home burglaries, robbing small businesses, etc. If you have anything outside at home that people can steal and sell, please secure it.

I'll write more later. I get sick every time I start writing about this and considering the chaos that will result. Three things in particular make me deathly ill. First, the 100-year plundering and pillaging of the American people the U.S. Government has helped the ruthless, godless money vultures steal from us makes me sick. Secondly, watching the steady stream of lies I see coming from straight faces in the media, and the politicians they broadcast, makes me sick. And thirdly, just knowing how uninformed, brainwashed and gullible the vast majority of the American people are makes me sick. See you next time.

Once upon a time in a village, a man appeared and announced to the villagers that he would buy monkeys for $10 each. The villagers seeing that there were many monkeys around, went out to the forest, and started catching them.

The man bought thousands at $10 and as supply started to diminish, the villagers stopped their effort. He further announced that he would now buy at $20. This renewed the efforts of the villagers and they started catching monkeys again.

Soon the supply diminished even further and people started going back to their farms. The offer increased to $25 each and the supply of monkeys became so little that it was an effort to even see a monkey, let alone catch one!

The man now announced that he would buy monkeys at $50 ! However, since he had to go to the city on some business, his assistant would now buy on his behalf.

In the man's absence, the assistant told the villagers 'Look at all these monkeys in the big cage that the man has collected. I will sell them to you at $35 and when the man returns from the city, you can sell them to him for $50 each.'

The villagers rounded up all their savings and bought all the monkeys for $35 each. Then they never saw the man nor his assistant again. They had the monkeys, and the man had their money.

Now you have a better understanding of how the stock market and the government work.

Irrefutable, Incontrovertible Proof

by Fred Marshall Jr.
October 5, 2008

5ive minutes are left in the 4th Quarter. The eleven Banksters have the ball on the People's 10-yard line, where two defensive tackles scratch their heads and wonder how the two of them can possibly stop the onslaught of the next down, with their other nine players sitting on the sidelines cheering them on. The score is already 84 to 0, reflecting a dozen earlier Bankster touchdowns and extra points, all scored with most of the People's team sitting on the sidelines, cheering, waving flags and chanting "YOU gotta BELIEVE!" The only offensive players who have been on the field for the People, throughout the entire afternoon, are the quarterback and the center. It's no wonder, then, that the People's team has not completed a single pass nor has it advanced the ball to midfield since the contest began. Still, the "spectating" team members show no sign of losing faith in the helpless tackles.

One tackle signals the referee and burns the People's next-to-last time out.

While the tackles plead with the coach to help them get the rest of the team on the field for what may be the People's last chance to stall the Bankster's advance, let's look at some of the landscape visible within the stadium.

Up in the high-altitude cheap seats, US District Court Judge R. Barclay Surrick, the federal magistrate for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, in the matter of Philip J. Berg vs Barack Hussein Obama, had ruled on September 29, 2008, that defendant Obama must produce three specific documents to prove he is a natural born citizen of the United States, and gave him three days to produce them. That was six days ago. The rest of us dummies think that proof would have been one of the requirements for initial registration in the presidential primaries. Apparently not.

The lawsuit and Judge's Order WAS posted here. Somebody powerful wants the story killed.

Berg charged, and claims to have indisputable proof, that Obama was born in Kenya and was transported to Hawaii shortly thereafter. If that's true, then Obama is not eligible to become President of the United States, even if he garners sufficient electoral votes. Article II, Section 1, Paragraph 6 of the Constitution *FOR the United States of America is uncompromising on this point:

"No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of the President;..."

*See the Preamble to the Constitution

Telling is the fact that the mainstream media (controlled by only six people, all minions of the Federal Reserve) have chosen to ignore, or suppress, this vitally important court action. Why isn't this NEWS? Have the men behind the curtain chosen Obama to succeed Bush as their lead American puppet? The way they have collectively portrayed him as the Messiah these past weeks would lead observers to suspect, if not conclude, that the "fix is in."

Down closer to the playing field, enconsced in the more prestigious box seats, are key members of the House and Senate who shepherded the bailout bill - - the one that miraculously swelled from three pages to 442 pages in less than a week - - through the Congress and right past the half-closed eyes of 300 million yawning Americans.

They're laughing and joking about all the provisions they were able to add to the bill to fund totally unrelated projects, such as aid, assistance and/or subsidies for wind power, solar power, college students, teachers, disaster victims, NASCAR racetrack owners, film producers, bicycle commuters, makers of Puerto Rican and Virgin Islands rum, owners of plug-in electric vehicles, investors in American Samoa, mine rescuers, worsted wool fabric producers, Alaskan fishermen, makers of wooden arrows, and more.

"Pork" in the Bail Out Bill, Plus Ron Paul Thoughts on It All

They also discuss their own security and their plans for moving to the underground bunker city the generous taxpayers spent half a trillion dollars to build for them and their families, to insure "continuity of government" when the collapse comes. Taxpayers who don't yet feel raped should consider that a monumental conspiratorial criminal enterprise has used our money to provide for their own safety, knowing full well the time will come when the rest of us will be left above ground to starve and perish while they live in comfort on our money. Need a barf bag yet?

Though much in the voluminous bailout bill is yet to be discovered by searchers and revealed to the public, we know of some things already. New York's senior Senator, Charles Schumer, one of the premier actors in the feature "show," promised a few days ago:

"We will not Christmas-tree this bill. The times are too urgent. Everyone has their own desires and needs. It's going to have to wait."
In the words of one report, the beltway label (Christmas tree) that's been placed on the bill would more appropriately be the "slop bucket" bill.

Bailout bill loops in green tech, IRS snooping

The bill vastly expands the powers (note I didn't say "authority") of the IRS to conduct sting and undercover entrapment operations. For example, they can open up accounting firms, with agents posing as CPAs, and coax taxpayers to claim unauthorized deductions and then prosecute them for "cheating" the government out of its "due.". Moreover, the bill gives the IRS and its employees immunity from prosecution under several already-existing laws. The more of us the IRS can put in jail, the more the vultures love it. And the more they are immune to prosecution, the more motivated they become to go after more people, guilt and innocence notwithstanding. They have POWER and they have always been POWER HUNGRY, with most of them - - not all - - hypnotized by POWER.

Back to the game.

The two tackles represent the thousands of people who have been sounding the alarm, at the top of their lungs, for the past fifteen-plus years that the financial collapse is coming. Among them has been Texas Representative Ron Paul, who ran in the primaries for the Republican nomination but was thrown in the dungeon, out of sight and out of mind, by the media (on orders from behind the curtain). They couldn't afford to give media exposure to an honest man who understands the problems and knows specifically how to fix them. Publicizing information of that nature would expose some of the criminal ventures which brought us to this place.

The Banksters' team represents the men behind the curtain, the banking industry, all branches of the federal government, and the mainstream media (including radio, television, movie, music, publishing, and the entertainment industries). All of them are arrayed against the People. Make no mistake about that.

People 25 and younger cannot remember when the President's name wasn't either Bush or Clinton. The Bush-Clinton-Bush 20-year dynasty was deliberately put in place to do precisely what they have done; open up our borders, dilute the population with foreigners thus depressing labor costs, destroy our ability to be self-sufficient by exporting jobs and our manufacturing base, increase our dependence on foreign oil and other products, enact free-trade agreements and treaties with foreign nations (NAFTA, GATT, CAFTA, FTAA, etc.), debase the currency and plague the nation with runaway inflation by engaging in perpetual war and printing endless supplies of "funny money," tighten controls over the people and finish destroying the Constitution (U.S.A. Patriot Acts I and II), build concentration camps sufficient to house 10% of us (that's the percentage they expect to resist the takeover), and prepare us to submit obediently to the New World Order they've been planning for more than 75 years.

What happens beginning tomorrow, and in the coming weeks and months, will be interesting to watch, though it will be painful to endure. More banks will fail and, at some point, there will be massive runs on banks like not seen since the bank panic of 1907 and those leading to the Great Depression of the 1930s. Increasing FDICs coverage from $100,000 to $250,000 is a ruse intended to entice depositors not to touch their money yet. Since FDIC cannot cover the $100,000, they could have just as easily increased coverage to a million dollars, for all that propaganda's worth.

Many of those who are not prepared will perish. Some who aren't prepared will survive because compassionate friends, neighbors and families will close the gap and protect and feed them. When it's all over, everyone will understand the concept of "survival of the fittest."

Armed robberies of businesses and residences have increased dramatically over the past week. People who don't have firearms (and know how to use them) are, and will continue to be, prime targets. People will die. Dead men tell no tales, and robbers will take that into consideration.

The "it can't happen here" myth will end up wiping out tens of millions. Gold is certain to pass $2,000 per troy ounce. It is already as scarce as hen's teeth. Europe has closed ranks in refusing to export any of its gold to the U.S., because they need to preserve theirs in case our collapse dominoes to them, which is likely.

Sadly, most people haven't a clue what is happening now, and will be totally surprised and devastated when things begin to unravel and really get tough. Whether this infusion of tons of monopoly money will delay the collapse a week, a month or four months remains to be seen, but I give it four months, tops, and it could very well begin before the coming week is out. If we make it to Inauguration Day (January 20, 2009), it will be nothing less than a miracle.

If Bush doesn't declare martial law, suspend elections, and remain president, then Obama will be the next president. He's a Muslim for certain, and he's likely not a natural born citizen, but he has the media protecting him.


They are perfectly capable of destroying McCain, and they will if he doesn't destroy himself first. They have more than enough dirt to do the deed when and if the word comes from behind the curtain, including his Keating 5ive involvement and his traitorous conduct while in captivity in Hanoi. They have it all.

John McCain's Keating Five Problem In 97 Seconds

The "proof" tickler in my title refers to the Obama citizenship matter. If he doesn't produce convincing and verifiable documentation of live birth in the United States, and if he is elected without it and without it being covered thoroughly by the media, that will constitute irrefutable and incontrovertible proof that there is no Constitution, though the U.S.A. Patriot Acts should have convinced everyone of that already.

A Message From Congress To The People

Dear Residents (legal and illegal), and U.S. Persons (no more U.S. Citizens):

We're going to pass the bailout package. What we're doing is postponing our plans to crash the economy for a while, at least until after the elections. In the meantime, we can steal a lot more money from you by pumping an ungodly amount of worthless currency into the market (super inflation) and drive prices up very rapidly. We know many of you won't be able to make it when gasoline hits $8 and things you've been paying $5 for very quickly jump to $9 or $10.

Many of you will starve, especially you old folks who are already eating dog food and are unable to refill your prescriptions. Some of you will just go ahead and commit suicide to keep from facing the agony of starvation. Strokes and heart attacks are relatively painless, when you look at if from our perspective. Crime will skyrocket as hungry people and drug addicts mug, rob, and burgle homes and neighborhoods in a new and burgeoning crime wave. That will give us justification for passing more invasive, even inhumane law enforcement measures so we can field test some of our new technology that's more ruthless than tasers.

That will give our Ostopo (formerly Gestapo, named after George) and military forces valuable practice in preparation for the martial law we'll need to control crowds and insurgents while we implement the new North American Union merger next year and launch our new sound money system we're so proud of, the Amero.

We'll be moving with our families underground to our "continuity of government" bunker city where we'll have all the modern and futuristic comforts and live in total security, free from all your bloody faxes, phone calls and emails. You simpletons still think we're here because you voted us here, but we've been controlling the vote tallies electronically for many years. As long as you just THINK you can throw us out, we haven't a care in the world. We'll keep our pay and benefits elevated, and will increase them to allow for the inflation we're heaping on all of you.

Meanwhile, please keep watching our propaganda on regular and cable television, and check in on C-SPAN from time to time to see our show designed to make you think there are two opposing teams here looking out for you. Ha. If you only knew.

It's a Free Country - Just Don't Try to Leave

by Fred Marshall Jr.
October 1, 2008

What is "private property?" What is "ownership?" What do you "own?" Or do you own anything?

If you own something, it is yours to do with as you choose. You are free to give it away, to sell it, to bury it, to burn it, to let it ruin, rot or rust, or to use it. If there is ANY restriction on those rights, then you don't really own it.

If you own a lawn mower, you can give it to me, you can sell it to me, you can leave it in the back yard to rust, you can even bury it in the back yard, or you can protect and maintain it, fill it with gas and oil and mow your lawn with it. However, you cannot BURN it if you live within the city limits. With that single exception, it's yours, you own it.

But if there is an ordinance in your town that prohibits running lawn mowers on Sunday mornings, then your ownership of the lawn mower is conditioned upon your not using it on Sunday mornings. If you violate that ordinance, the city may fine you or confiscate the mower as their ways of forcing your compliance with their laws. You know, the ones that are for "your own good."

How about the money you call yours? Is it really yours? Do you own it? Hardly and hardly. If you have it in a CD, then you can't withdraw it until its maturity date without surrendering a portion of it, but that's a self-imposed restriction because you pre-agreed to let the bank use your money for a specified period of time. If you opt to withdraw $10,000 or more in cash, from any account, then it's conditioned upon the bank's submission of an SAR form to the IRS. That's a "Suspicious Activity Report" of a currency transaction. That you want to use your own money is decreed, by law, to be a "suspicious activity."

If you decide to take, say, $6,000 or $8,000 in cash to go and enjoy a nice holiday week in Vegas or Atlantic City, they can detect the cash money on your person with monitors in the airline terminal and arrest you and call it drug money. After all, they assert, no one carries that much cash around with them unless he/she got it illegally. Some of the money you have will have trace amounts of cocaine on it, enough to be detectible by drug dogs and special lamps they use to find blood, drugs, etc., that isn't visible to the naked eye. The government embedded the bills with cocaine in order to always give them a reason to arrest you whenever they so choose. By employing such tactics and laws, those who control the money and currency are saying indelibly to the public, "Use our banks and pay us our interest or we'll put you in jail."

I know a man who doesn't use banks in any way, shape or form. He hates them. He recently bought a car at a public auction for $1,500 and promptly sold it for $3,500. He was paid by check. He went with his brother to his brother's bank, endorsed the check to his brother and his brother told the teller he wanted the money in cash. She had to go get the head teller who told the two men they don't like to give out that much cash to individuals because they could get mugged, robbed, and even killed. "What do you plan to do with that much money in cash?" asked the head teller of the account holder. "None of your business, give me my money," answered the man. He got his money of course, but whose money was it, anyway? What rights did the bank employee have to even ask?

I know another recent case where an account holder notified his bank on a Monday that he would be coming in Tuesday to withdraw $50,000 in $100 bills the following day. He feared his bank might join the gaggle of failing banks, though he didn't tell the bank that. It took him two and a half hours Tuesday to get the cash money and then they gave it to him in $20 bills, claiming they needed their $100s for the normal first of the month business. They offered to let him put the money into a safety deposit box ($120 box fee) until they could order the $100s on Friday, which would get delivered by armored car the following Tuesday. Because of the bulk involved with that many $20s, he had little choice. Even to move the money from the teller to the deposit box, he had to sign a form in which the bank strongly advised him against withdrawing large sums in cash and in which he agreed to hold the bank harmless in the event he was robbed inside the bank or on bank property.

Furthermore, his safety deposit box contract not only holds the bank harmless for the contents, he also had to waive his right to sue or have to a jury trial in the event of any complaint or dispute with the bank concerning the box. Any dispute or claim has to be handled by arbitration under state arbitration rules and procedures.

After considering all the above, then it's instructive to read the following about laws recently enacted (you heard about this already, it was all over the news....wasn't it?) which provide for taking and taxing your money if you decide to surrender your citizenship and leave the country, or give up your green-card residency and go back home. I thought the Iron Curtain was something we poo-pooed when Russians had to defect and climb guarded walls to get OUT of their country.

It's a Free Country - Till You Try to Leave It

While you are inside the United States, if you are a natural-born citizen or legal immigrant, you are a "U.S. Person." The limited "rights" accorded a U.S. Person are the same for all within that category. You are not a "U.S. Citizen" unless you leave the United States with a valid passport, you know, certified written permission (my mom used to call them "kitchen passes" when she issued them to me) of the United States Government to temporarily leave their walled-in-but-not-walled-out gulag for a specific purpose for a specified period of time. While you are gone, you ARE a United States Citizen. When you return, you resume being a U.S. Person, with rights equal to those of green-card holders and any other U.S. Person. You've come a long way, Baby.

Of course most readers didn't know they are no longer U.S. Citizens. But they shouldn't be alarmed, it's a voluntary status they have contracted to adopt. They may not be consciously aware that they have, but everyone has already made the conversion if (s)he has opened a new bank account, or modified an existing one, since 2001. Those innocent-looking forms they signed contained their contracts. Even the signature cards contain it.

Think you own your car? Try not renewing your registration and just parking the car in your back yard. See how long it takes for the state to come and tow THEIR car away. Yes, they hold the title to it, all you have is an ABSTRACT of the title. The car is THEIRS, not yours. You have the rights to USE it so long as you obey their rules, and you have the rights to drive it so long as you have met their requirements for licensing as an operator. The same is true of your home, and any real property you might "own." Try not paying the property taxes and see how long it takes them to auction off "your" property to the highest bidder.

When folks can no longer own property free and clear, then there can be no semblance of "freedom," there's only the ILLUSION of freedom because you can still drive from city to city without specific permission from government. But those days and times are drawing to a close as well. As long as things such as these are done inconspicuously, and gradually so we can adjust, most people neither notice nor care.

Welcome to U.S.S.I., the United Socialist States of Illusion. You are being watched and monitored. Get used to it. Or leave. It'll cost you either way.

U.S./ Foreign Troops Gearing Up for Martial Law In America

What will happen?

Someone emailed me and asked me what to expect over the coming couple of months. Here was my initial response and follow-on.

Prices will skyrocket, partially because the market will be flooded with the new worthless money and partially because of the fear an uncertain future engenders, gasoline will be rationed, checkpoints will be everywhere, you'll be asked where you are going and why, and you'll be manhandled if you even hesitate with your answers.

Shelves in stores will be stripped bare overnight. People will be siphoning gasoline from your cars, breaking into them and taking everything of value. Stores will raise prices on their own to try and accumulate as much cash as possible for themselves before the final collapse comes.

Drug addicts will break into pharmacies when their supply sources dry up or their source of money dries up, and that will lead to muggings, home burglaries, killings, etc. People who cannot get their legitimate prescription medications will suffer and some will die (heart medications, etc.).

Women will be raped left and right. Crime will be so rampant the law enforcement agencies won't be able to make a dent in it. Some officers will throw their hands up while others will shoot first and ask questions later. Others won't show up for work but will stay home to protect their own families.

Military forces, both ours and foreign forces, will be used to confiscate registered firearms and some will be shot by citizens who resist, opening the door for "shoot on sight" orders being given to them, and that's when martial law will be declared, if not before.

And that's just the surface things to expect. Martial law will be the first major government move and gradually everything will be controlled by and rationed by the government. Once martial law has re-established order, there'll be massive installing of in-body micro-chip insertions, "for our protection," and master computers will track everything we do. People will welcome the chips believing they will be safer. It's amazing what people will accept in exchange for promised safety.

1984 is in sight.

Neighborhoods will have to organize and provide their own protection from roaming gangs and government agencies determined to disarm and control the people. 24/7 patrols by armed community members will be essential. Self defense and survival will be the order of the day. If you can defend your own family, then that's the best approach. If you can't stay awake around the clock and don't have relatives to trade off with, then it'll be necessary to team up with one or two other families and provide for common defense. Try to select a family or families who are prepared and have plenty of food and firearms and ammunition on hand. If you have to partner up with a family you must arm and feed, then you diminish your own ability to survive.


How will things differ from 1929?

Lots of differences between now and 1929. People didn't owe much back then. Credit wasn't as prevalent, most people waited till they saved up and could buy what they wanted with cash. There were hardly any drug addicts. People were simpler and had been taught from birth the importance of working for what they wanted. They were taught to have a conscience and right versus wrong was an ingrained standard with nearly everyone. So the crime back then was manageable, but it won't be this time. Lots of people today have been taught that right and wrong don't matter, what they WANT does matter. Too many nowadays feel "entitled" to certain things and if they don't get them legally, they'll take them by force.

Plus there were about 80 million people back then, most living in rural areas. Now there are 300-plus million and they are mostly concentrated in metropolitan areas and smaller cities. People back then owned property and could raise their own crops, so starving wasn't nearly the threat it is now. People today don't know how to change a tire, let alone till the ground and plant and cultivate seeds.

Back then it was possible to hunt rabbits and squirrels and wild geese and deer for food. Now, with the numbers of people, after a week there will be no rabbits, deer, etc., they will have all been killed for food. The endangered species crowd will go ape-shit. They'd rather see people die than rabbits. They'll change their tune when they get hungry enough.

Many people who have prepared will survive, but many will starve. That's the way governments have thinned out populations throughout history. Stalin starved 20 million. Don't think this hasn't been well planned for years by the elite who seek to rule us all with their iron fist. People who have plenty of basic staples such as flour, rice, pasta, olive or other cooking oil, etc., won't go hungry but millions who haven't paid attention will starve. But before they starve, many will kill in their attempts to survive. Anyone who isn't ready to deal with that won't make it.


P.S. I'll do another installment in a couple of days when I get a few last minute details handled for my own family.

Iron fist control of the Internet

Anyone who thinks 'they' aren't controlling the Internet, see how many places this 10-minute video was posted and they're ALL gone now, in just a matter of hours. Who has the power and influence to have all these sites kill the video that showed the American people what REALLY caused the crisis? They are determined to keep the people from finding out the truth. We see on the Internet only those things they allow us to see.

This'll knock your socks off...leaked by a member of Congress

On March 13, 2008, the United States House of Representatives went into executive (secret) session behind closed doors. It was the sixth time executive session has been used in the history of the House, but the FIRST time such a session was used to discuss proposed secret legislation. The main subject was 'Preparation for the declaration of martial law,' and the nine specific topics under discussion were as follows:

1. The imminent collapse of the U.S. Economy to occur sometime in late 2008.
2. The imminent collapse of the U.S. Government finances sometime in mid-2009.
3. The possibility of civil war inside the U.S. as a result of the financial collapse.
4. The advance roundup of 'insurgent' U.S. citizens 'likely' to move against the government.
5. The detention of those rounded up at REX 84 camps already constructed throughout the U.S.
6. The possibility of public retaliation against members of Congress for the collapse
7. The location of safe facilities for members of Congress and their families to reside during massive civil unrest.
8. The necessary and unavoidable merger of the U.S., Mexico and Canada, establishing the North American Union, and
9. The issuance of a new currency, called the AMERO, for all three nations as an economic solution

I previously sent a link showing a member of the house reading the title and purpose of a bill in which he said "classified" about 50 times. Listeners couldn't make heads nor tails of anything he read. At the moment I cannot find that video clip/link. I suppose most Americans won't believe shit until there is a monumental pile in their front yards.

Getting Closer To The Basement

"How many steps must we take down the basement stairs before we realize we are going to end up in the basement?" - Fred Marshall Jr.

All yesterday I heard about a "bipartisan effort" in Congress though it was, in effect, a single party operation, with only a handful of traitors permitted from the opposition party. All day today I've heard about those nasty Republicans and Democrats (finger pointing).

2-minute C-SPAN video - Martial Law Declared In US Congress

There are free market solutions ladies and gentlemen, that will let the market sort things out by punishing the irresponsible and not punishing the producers and risk-takers. The worst solutions are government takeover and socialization of the marketplace the administration is proposing and the Congressional majority is pushing.

If this bailout occurs, to any degree, then we may as well live in U.S.S.R., because we shall surely live in United Socialist States of America.

Keep in mind - - and I know memories are short - - what happened with the S & L bailout....they initially said it would cost $10 billion, then a couple of weeks later they said it might reach $25 billion, and the final tally was closer to $500 billion. Can you imagine how that dynamic would work with an initial estimate of $700 billion? What is 50 times $700 billion? $35 TRILLION? Pretty soon we're going to be talking about some real money here. Hell, with $700 billion, they could give $425,000 to every citizen in the United States age 18 and older. Reckon some of them might then pay off their mortgages and solve the problem? No, that won't work because people working in everyday jobs in the service sector would quit their jobs on the spot, and the economy would surely collapse.

What these people are proposing is not taking money from the taxpayer and giving it to the banking industry, no, they propose to create $700 billion out of thin air and give it to the bankers to pump into the economy. Then very soon a loaf of bread will cost $5 and a gallon of gasoline will cost $9. That wouldn't be so bad for someone earning $2,000 a week, but let me see a show of hands of all who are earning that much. That's what I thought, not many.

All that worthless currency will flood the market, prices in dollars will rise to the point where people can't carry enough cash on their persons to get through a normal day, and that makes progress towards the cashless society they seek, in which all transactions must be executed electronically and the bankers and the government know how and where every dime is spent (dimes will soon replace the pennies). I saw it in the late 1950s in France, when a briefcase full of paper French francs was worth about 50 U.S. dollars. It took ten minutes to count out enough money to buy a pack of chewing gum.

In the end, a huge chunk of mortgaged real estate will wind up in the hands of the banks and they will have gotten this huge windfall of free money AND they will have a lot of our foreclosed property as well. In the end, the money WILL come from the PEOPLE, and it will all go to the BANKSTERS along with the millions of acres of real estate they will then own.

I still maintain that 88% of Americans are functionally stupid. They don't know squat and most of them don't want to know. I listened today on C-SPAN to Obama speaking in Colorado and was amazed at how so many people could so stupidly cheer such unmitigated bullshit spewing out of his mouth. I hear similar crap coming out of McCain's mouth. With four candidates on the two tickets, not a single one has a prayer at being a competent president yet, for the first time in memory, both VP candidates are more competent than the heads of their tickets.

Meanwhile, the federal government grows, Homeland Security grows, FEMA grows, all dangerously. This country hasn't a prayer in avoiding being transformed to a Socialist society. Like Germans in the 1930s, only a very few saw it coming.

Politicians put us in this position, Democrats and Republicans alike. In the 90s the Congress and the Executive Branch forced lenders to make loans to borrowers who were not creditworthy but who were identified by the Presidential administration as "needing" homes (what was "needed" was Democratic votes for his re-election). Janet Reno threatened heavy federal fines for lending institutions which rejected loan applications from such people....minorities, underprivileged, etc.

The bad loans that were made continued well into this current administration, with its continued encouragement. The solution is to let the institutions which made the bad loans fail, and allow the borrowers who bought homes they could not afford to go into foreclosure. The market will sort all that out on its own.

One member of Congress described the proposed bailout bill as a "mud sandwich." He was 100% correct in that regard.

A national emergency can be anything a president "deems" it is. What is "deems?" Is that sort of like "divining," or "playing a hunch?"

What most don't know, or chose to ignore - 5 min

Parallels between 1933 and 2008 are rapidly accelerating..

1) Publication of "Mein Kampf" and publication of "Project For a New American Century"
2) Reign of the 3rd Reich and reign of the 43rd U.S. Presidential Administration
3) Hitler's burning of his own parliament, and the U.S. Government's 9-11 attack on its own people
4) Austria (Anschluss)-Czechoslovakia (Munich Agreement)-Poland/Afghanistan-Iraq-Iran
5) Passage of Hitler's Enabling Act and passage of the nearly identical U.S.S.A. Patriot Act
6) Operations of Hitler's Gestapo and operations of U.S.S.A.'s Blackwater
7) Bankruptcy of Germany's Weimar Republic and U.S.S.A.'s taxpayer bailout of Federal Reserve interests

Lace your fingers behind your neck, place your head between your knees, and prepare for a crash landing.
