What came first, the chicken or the egg? Did the elites PLAN to outlaw cash and therefore, invented the debit card so that cash could slowly be erased from the planet?
I can’t tell you how many young people I have talked to brag about how EASY it is to pay all their bills online. Having anybody reach into my stash of cash at the bank STILL gives me the willies…what you are basically doing is telling your uncle to go into your house, and take the cash he needs every month, and you will trust that he takes only what he needs, with you not there.
It’s clear, that the banks want to completely get rid of cash. There are too many people who can make ends met, or trade among themselves with cash transactions, and the bankers and politicians HATE it.
And here, David Knight gives proof of what the Banks want to do.
When all the cash is controlled by banks alone, it’s not going to be pretty. Nothing will be able to keep them out of your bank account if they so choose.
We ARE being forced into it…and they are trying to make everyone buy their necessities by offering you cash back incentives. They are paying you to not use cash.
When our ability to trade with currency is gone, so along goes our freedom to survive on our own.
Sadly– most everyone in the world thinks this is a natural evolution of our wonderful technology. (Idiots)
So, Congratulations David Knight! You win the Nobody’s Fool Award for the week, for at least trying to wake people.
Good luck with that.
I was standing in line at my local cable company today, because they had just told me my “introductory” rates were over and I now had to pay another $100 for services, when I just couldn’t help myself—-
It seems, he was an insurance broker and the first words out of his mouth were, “They really screwed everything up with Obamacare.” As I listened to the man, he was complaining that nobody knew what was going on, the doctors were refusing to “lower” their rates, and therefore, many people were going to hospitals and doctors, where they were NOT covered and didn’t even know it. He couldn’t get answers from anyone, and everybody was paying MORE money, and well…to be fair, I did start the conversation with, “What do you do?”
So, there I was…there to cancel my phone and Cable service, but I had to keep the internet, which of course also went up another $30 dollars, and I was realizing the vast network of money being sucked up by everyone that can.
When it was finally my turn, I asked the lady why my internet kept going up, and she shrugged.
“Well, how about I cancel it, and then go home, and join up again for the introductory price and save myself thirty dollars a month?” I said.
“That sounds like too much trouble.” she said.
So, because I truly do need the internet, I decided to go home and think about it.
This is such everyday stuff I know, and boring, but Americans are having to make these decisions every day, because everything is going up…and the salaries are not. It’s like we are all trapped in one of those movies where the people are at the bottom of a well, and the water is rising, and they keep trying to keep their heads above the water and then there’s screaming…AHAHHHHH!!!
Which is what I feel like doing today. Scream. My Santa Fee broke down last Saturday, in the middle of a very popular main drag, and luckily, my girlfriend had AAA or I would have had to pay a big tow fee. And I was feeling guilty about it…the dealer had told me that at 60,000 miles I needed to replace the timing belt…which of course was $600. But I thought…WHY? My old Pontiac Firebird went on for over 125,000 miles without me having to do anything to it but change the oil and tires.
So…I didn’t get it done.
I found out today, from the garage it was towed to, that it was going to cost over $800. Timing belt had to be replaced along with the OTHER thing that broke. (Some kind of drive shaft)
“So” I asked,” I should have had the timing belt replaced like everyone says and this wouldn’t have happened? ”
“Well, no.” he said. “We might have replaced the timing belt and not seen this and you would have had to bring it back and it would have cost you even more.”
So, here’s the deal.
They say, all the ‘sensors’ in all these new cars are the problem. They may all do great things, but the parts in them? They break.
Thomas Edison made a light bulb that shone for over 100 years, and they use to make cars that did not have to have major engine work every 60,000 miles. I know, I have owned a few.
What don’t I get?
“If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and the corporations which grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent of their fathers”…Thomas Jefferson
By now, we all know how our many recent past Presidents worshiped the Federal Reserve Chairman’s, and how this private banking organization called the Federal Reserve controls our whole economy…at least some of us do.
The average man doesn’t think much about the Federal Reserve because, besides Ron Paul, you won’t catch ANYBODY anywhere saying anything against it. No politician dares speak of it.
So, I thought I’d take an excerpt out of Judge Napolitano’s book, It Is Dangerous to be Right when the Government is Wrong, to help us all remember, the true history of the Federal Reserve, and how it has been the cause of so much misery.
On November 22nd, 1010, Senator Nelson W. Aldrich (R-Rhode Island), with five companions, set forth under assumed names in a privately chartered railroad care from Hoboken, New Jersey, to Jekyll Island, Georgia, allegedly on a duck-hunting expedition. The need to maintain secrecy was extremely important to the men who were aboard the train traveling to J.P. Morgan’s private retreat at the Jekyll Island Club. The full guest list would be later revealed as including Senator Aldrich (Rockefeller kinsman,) Henry P. Davison ( a J.P. Morgan partner), Paul Warburg (a Kuhn Loeb & Co. partner), Frank A. Vanderlip (a vice president of Rockefeller’s National City Bank of New York), Charles D. Norton (the president of Morgan’s First National Bank of New York), and professor A. Piatt Andrew (Head of the National Monetary Commission research staff), who had recently been made an assistant secretary of the treasury under President Taft, and who was a technician with a foot in tin both the Rockefeller and the Morgan camps.
These powerful banking elites would devise the new central banking system and draft what is now known as the Aldrich Plan. The Fed was given a monopoly of the issue of all bank notes: national banks as well as state banks. All nation banks were “forced” to become members of the Federal Reserve System.
A lower interest rate means it is less painful to the government to borrow money. This system led to the national debt ballooning from $2.6 billion in 1910 to $25.9 billion in 1920, which also led to the sharp spike of inflation that followed.
The great nations of the world would abandon the gold standard in order to print money to fund World War II. With the massive debt accrued by European nations to fight the war, as well as the need for the United States to pay its bills for the war, a new monetary sits had to be formed. Shortly after World War II, Lord Keynes and Harry Dexter White, a U.S. Treasury official, propared the plans for a new global financial system. Representatives of the financial rulers of the United Nations assembled in Breton Woods., New Hampshire, and they enacted the new global monetary system.
And it’s funny….Every day we hear how the Feds will not raise interest rates, because then the government can continue to borrow at 0 percent. I have read way too many articles saying that it’s all going to collapse, and soon.
In the meantime, the rich are getting MUCH richer, as if they all know what’s coming and like squirrels they are gathering as many nuts as possibly to last out the winter ahead.
The crash of 2008, was basically a major theft of the American people. We really haven’t recovered and Obama’s policies, Like FDR’s has made the economy worse.
Still, thanks to the Fed Chairman’s, ..the stock market continues to soar. Good for people who own stock. Not so much, for the majority of the people.
And the dollar, is only worth about 30 cents.
Wouldn’t it be something to one day, go to the morning Drudge report, see the pictures of all the men who run and profit from the Federal Reserve, their names, and their incomes?
Nobody Wonders how much they are all worth NOW— don’t you?
This week, we have Ronald Reagan Teaching Obama Economics 101.

They are predicting that the dollar bill will soon disappear to be replaced by the Amero. …but according to this email, it’s already been replaced with…the Obama coupon:

This video was made during the occupy Wall Street fiasco, but…it’s so brilliant, I think they should play it to high school classes. (Fat Chance)
Enjoy the master, Molotov Mitchell, who not only educates, but entertains with delightful fun.
Molotov, you ARE the epitome of Nobody’s Fool.
(LOL! Like Molotov even knows who I am.)
Nobody Get’s Email:
Hey, here’s an email that I did not check out on Snopes, (okay, I admit, I never check out emails on Snopes.) but I think that Bill Downey has something here:
On the other hand….I could do a blog about this…and I probably already did!
$20 Hamburgers or minimum wage?
For those fast food employees striking for $15 an hour, let’s do some math.
At $15 an hour Johnny Fry-Boy would make $31,200 annually.
An E1 (Private) in the military makes $18,378.
An E5 (Sergeant) with 8 years of service only makes $35,067 annually.
So you’re telling me, Sally McBurgerflipper, that you deserve as much as those kids getting shot at, deploying for months in hostile environments, and putting their collective asses on the line every day protecting your unskilled butt!?
Here’s the deal, Baconator, you are working in a job designed for a kid in high school who is learning how to work and earning enough for gas, and hanging out with their equally goofy high school pals. If you have chosen this as your life long profession, you have failed.
Rupert Murdoch was on FOX today, and the discussion was about Scotland’s independence, and somehow the subject got around to why people all over the world were upset: He basically said that the rich are getting much richer, and the poor are getting poorer.
As long as the little guy’s life got better, he could have cared less about how rich the Duponts, or the Rockefeller’s, or even Rupert Murdoch got. But, since the great crash of 2008, the people of the world have watched the rich elites get richer, while everyone else had to make do with much less than before.
The masses are NOT happy, and Scotland is just the tip of the iceberg.
So, I thought it would be a good time to remember a senator named Huey Long. Huey was a democratic Senator from Louisiana in 1935, (during the first depression) and here are a few things he said on a radio address given in January, 1935. You will be reminded of how little the democratic party has changed:
“We ran Mr. Roosevelt for the presidency of the Unites States because he promised to us by word of mouth and in writing:
- That the size of the big man’s fortune would be reduced so as to give the masses at the bottom enough to wipe out all poverty: and
- That the hours of labor would be reduced that all would share in the work to be done and in consuming the abundance mankind produced.
What these promises meant was:”Share our wealth.”
When I saw him spending all his time of ease and recreation with the business partners of Mr. John D. Rockefeller Jr, with such men as the Astors, etc, maybe I ought to have had better sense than to have believed he would ever break down their big fortunes to give enough to them masses to end poverty. Millions of people were fooled at the same time.
He goes on:
- The Fortunes of the multimillionaires and billionaires shall be reduced so that no one person shall own more than a few million dollars to the person.
- We propose to limit the amount any one man can earn in one year or inherit to $1 million to the person.
- With that money we will provide a home and the comforts of home, with such common conveniences as radio and automobile for every family in America, free of debt.
- We guarantee food and clothing and employment for everyone who should work by shortening the hours of work to thirty hours per week, and to eleven months per year.
- .All education would be free. Even college. Why have the right to a college education depend upon whether the father or mother is so well to do as to send a boy or girl to college.
- A pension to everyone over 60.
- Forgive everybody’s debt.
The few own everything, the masses own nothing.
I imagine Huey would be very popular with Obama if he were alive today, and Harry Reid would have serious competition.
Of course, Huey’s ideas are nothing new. He was popular in his day. According to Wikipedia, he did a lot of good things for Louisiana for the short time he was there. Many of Huey’s wildest dreams of wealth redistribution have actually been put in place by the democratic party.
And if he were alive today, he would be saying the very same things, and I’m sure would have just as big a following as he did in 1935.
Getting back to Rupert Murdoch and Scotland—Nobody has quite figured out how to stop the rich elites from grabbing all the power and wealth, while millions of other people lead lives of “quiet desperation.” We don’t need to take the money from the rich, we just need the rich to stop stacking the deck in their favor.
Figure THAT out, and you’d have a whole new world.

This was a weird day. The internet was down most of the day, not sure why. Ferguson is trying to get back to normal, but Spike Lee is NOT about to let it.
Obama still plays golf. Pelosi has her water. ISIS want to destroy Chicago OR Las Vegas. The News is always so cheery.
So, I went to my local Wal-Mart, and only saw one other white person. There were mostly blacks, and Chinese, South Americans…and most of them looked as if they had just gotten here.
Finally, I’m a minority! Where’s my college tuition? Where’s my check.?
And then, there was the full-dressed Muslim woman in Wal-Mart, wearing the whole “slit on the eyes” outfit. Just walking around in the female shorts section. (Ha)
Sorry. Creepy. When I went out to get in my car, I saw a black man driving a a brand new Hummer, and a black women driving a brand new GM Buick, (about a 60,000 car), reminding me that most of the blacks in North Country are doing better than the whites. At least if you judge by the automobiles they drive.
Almost fainted at the grocery prices now, which are SO high, it actually is cheaper to eat at McDonald’s. A whole chicken, went from $6 to $14. A ham is over $30 dollars. And don’t even talk about hamburger. I refuse to pay it.
Which, I’m sure, is what Michelle wants.
Anyway, is it just me? Is anybody else noticing this astronomical inflation?
Or is this being caused by the fact that over half the country is on food stamp, and therefore, that’s why the prices are soaring? I can’t blame the Fed?
Anyway, just thoughts on a Sunday…..and this video is another one.
Great commercial. Maybe they should do that here.
(Thanks to JR.)
Let’s start this fine Sunday morning with a bit of humor shall we? Mark Dice always makes me laugh.
—-Although, as we see here, there is an ignorance from the young that might make you glad you are not going to be around in 50 years. ( And if you are young…?)
I saw most of this interview last weekend, and at the time, I was calming down two very psychotic dogs in my basement: Thunder.
(It happens Al Gore.)
And so, while I was watching this interview, I was almost sold on this guy’s story: Timothy Geithner, was overwhelmingly proud that he had saved the world! Yes, he was very proud of saving the average citizen.
You and I have NO idea how very brave and wise this man is. But he was letting us all know, and promoting his new book, Stress Test, which no doubt is another testimony to how little Timothy saved you and I from living in the mud.
And then he started talking about his amazement at President Obama’s leadership. To little Timmy, Obama was the most effective leader he had ever witnessed in his life. Why…he got everyone to talk for hours, and Obama would let everyone talk. What an amazing man! Incredible that Tim (Blame my tax evasion on TurboTax) Geithner, the x- Federal Reserve Leader, the x-Secretary Treasury of the United States, was in complete awe of this great leader…Obama.
Yes, little Timmy loves the guy who piled up more debt than all previous presidents combined.
(Little Timmy must have had Common Core Math.)
If you are just listening to Tim, and don’t think while you are listening–he is very convincing. But..watch how he NEVER mentions that he made us…the litte “paycheck to paycheck” guy, bail out the banks. And our grandchildren’s grandchildren’s. That’s not important.
In Timmy world, the United States IS the big banks, and the multinational Fortune 500 companies, and the rest of us well…we are basically fodder left behind long ago. But–we can eat Taco Bell thanks to Timmy!
(Thanks so much Timmy–bacon went from $2.99 to $8.99. Ever heard of inflation?)
Look how he denies that we bailed out the banks. It was Wall Street that gambled, trillions, MADE trillions, and that’s all thanks to Timmy. But notice how Mr. Geithner is trying to convince us all that he saved the little guy in America, from unemployment.
It’s almost surreal.
Last time I heard, over 93 million Americans were out of work. HALF the country is not working, and living in poverty, and notice he says nothing about our debt: If that’s Timmy’s idea of success I’d hate to see his failure.
But he HAS done a great thing, to the rich, hasn’t he? Their profits have tripled thanks to Timmy, and if you look at it from his point of view, which is to protect the rich, he did a great job.
Brilliant! Write a book! And how about that TARP? Money that was given to Obama’s donors and Solyndra friends. Solyndra collapsed anyway.
If we include all this debt — public debt, intragovernmental debt, and unfunded liabilities — we currently owe at least $79 trillion, 500 percent of GDP, and perhaps as much as $127 trillion, 800 percent of GDP. Most middle class families don’t have a lot of stocks, bonds or other financial assets. The number one asset of American were their homes, and they were decimated by Timmy.
But hey…we still have Wal-Mart! Thanks Tim.
Mr. Geithner admits it was ‘unpopular’ and in the interview he tells Charlie that politicians don’t see the big picture.. ..they should always listen to the bankers…like him…because he knows better.
Nobody Wins when the Oligarchs work together to suck what’s left out of the country that made them rich, richer. The banking industry is a cartel arrangement overseen by the Federal Reserve and shot through with monopoly, privilege, bailout protection and crooks.
Timothy Geithner might be a hero to his friends in D.C. and Wall Street, and to himself, but this nobody, he’s just another elite, lying, self-serving politician. (His recent picture below.)
It doesn’t matter how long ago this was taken, the economics are still the same. And yet, already Obama is making the minimum wage and women’s pay, the focus of the next elections. In St. Louis all last week, every single local news station was giving this one Pizza shop downtown St. Louis, lots of coverage because they were going to raise the salaries of their employees to over $10.00. You would have thought by the glowing coverage, that they were curing cancer.
Nobody Wonders if that was the same pizza place that Obama flew to the White House to deliver him a pizza his first days in office? Mmmmm….
Milton Friedman makes it all so clear. What really happens, when you raise the minimum wage, is the poor are hurt the most, and the blacks.
Good think Obama has their ‘backs.’ Their fronts aren’t looking too promising.
It’s being reported that 20 very young bank executives all over the world, have committed suicide. One guy “jumped’ off the 33rd floor (raising eyebrows about the 33 masons) another put six nails into his brain with a nail gun.
(Let’s call the Netherlands)
Bloomberg is reporting this morning that former Federal Reserve economist Mike Dueker was found dead in an apparent suicide near Tacoma, Washington. Normally HousingWire wouldn’t cover deaths in the industry, but what’s strange is that Dueker is the third prominent banker found dead since Sunday.
On Sunday, William Broeksmit, 58, former senior manager for Deutsche Bank, was found hanging in his home, also an apparent suicide.
On Tuesday, Gabriel Magee, 39, vice president at JPMorgan Chase & Co’s (JPM) London headquarters, apparently jumped to his death from a building in the Canary Wharf area.
Evidently most of these guys were happy campers, making a nice living…so at least it’s nice to know that they are not Michelle Obama’s list as “knuckleheads.” because no doubt they all had signed up for Obamacare.
I guess this would be funny, if we didn’t know that China has not bought any of our bonds for two years, our dollar is coming out of thin air, and the whole world is dropping the petrol dollar. Not to mention—everybody who knows something is telling you to hide your gold in your back yard.
And on that happy note, I’ll leave you with a happy video to wonder…what it all means.
Will the nobody squirrel escape? Hint: He did not work for JP Morgan.
