 - Napoleon Bonaparte (1769-1821)
When a government depends on bankers for money, the banks, and not the government, hold control.
A 5* from our archives .. a theme point which deserves to be & has been repeated & repeated & repeated here for years. People understood this concept centuries ago. Why is it not understood today?
The post above has appeared on our pages often. Napoleon 'got it'. Jefferson 'got it'. All the founding fathers of the United States 'got it & plenty of people (such as Charles Lindbergh Sr.) 'got it' in 1913 when they warned us that giving monopoly power over the U.S. dollar to a group of investment bankers was a horrible mistake. Why do most people not 'get it'? Sometimes highly educated & intelligent people just don't seem to 'get it'. Who runs the show? The elected leaders? OR The un-elected group that controls the money which elected leaders are required to use?
It is so nice to see that more people are realizing how farcical it is to claim
that a different President brings 'real change' .. unless we change 
the Racketeering Syndicate that controls the money. 
Changing The People Who Control Our
Money Is Far More Important Than
 Who We Elect As President
"I have been pounding the table over the mistakes made by central banks all around the world for some time now. When I started I was almost alone because markets were still going up and are no there were obvious market overvaluations. My argument back during QE3 was that over time an uber-dovish monetary policy would lead to excesses. We have now come to that point and I am no longer alone in my criticism. There is a growing concern from many corners of the globe that monetary policy, far from being benign, is actually quite malignant.
The problem is that the people who are in control of monetary policy, the central bankers, are in complete denial about the issues.
They see the response of financial markets, and when they talk to investors they see the smiles on their faces. Which tells you the crowd these people run with. If they were talking to average savers and investors, retirees and those on pensions, they would be hearing a different story. I have been bringing this issue up more and more because it is the single most important thing happening, with regard to our economic future. I think
the shape of monetary policy in the U.S. is more important than who we elect president – unless the new president actually changes the people who shape our monetary policy
Then, in terms of the economy, that is important!"

"While financial markets love any form of monetary accommodation, there can be no mistaking its dark side. Asset prices are being manipulated across the board – stocks and bonds, long- and short-duration assets, as well as currencies. As a result, savers are being punished, the cost of capital is repressed, and reckless risk taking is being encouraged in an income-constrained climate. This is especially treacherous terrain for economies desperately in need of productivity-enhancing investment. And it is not dissimilar to the environment of asset-based excess that incubated the global financial crisis."

Donald Trump Uncensored: This Is America's "Moment Of Reckoning"

Sometimes, you just have to listen...

"There is nothing that the political establishment will not do; no lie they will not tell, to hold their prestige and power at your expense... and that's what's been happening. The Washington establishment - and the financial and media corporations that fund it - exists for one thing only... to protect and enrich itself."


"For those who control the levers of power in Washington and for the global special interests - they partner with these people that don't have your good in mind - our campaign represents a true existential threat... like they haven't seen before. This is not simply another four-year election; this is a crossroads in the history of our civilization that will determine whether or not we, the people, reclaim control over our government."

Turn off MSNBC, CNBC, CNN, and NBC and listen - away from the spectacle - to some uncomfortable deep state realities...

Hillary Clinton’s war on faith

The hostility to people of faith here is simply breathtaking. Apparently when Clinton aides speak in private, their basket of “deplorables” includes faithful Catholics and evangelicals who believe in the sanctity of human life. If they had made such comments about any other group, they would be politically excommunicated.

Yet the mainstream media has, for the most part, ignored these revelations of anti-religious bias. After Donald Trump’s disgusting comments about women were leaked, his vice-presidential running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, was besieged with questions of whether he would leave the ticket. Has anyone asked Clinton’s running mate, Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., who professes to be a faithful Catholic, whether he will quit the ticket over this?

Does he agree Catholics are “backwards,” the Catholic Church is a “middle ages dictatorship” and it is the job of politicians to foment a “Catholic Spring”? Does he agree that Democrats should be creating front groups to launch a “revolution” against the bishops? Does he share Clinton’s belief that the “religious views” of American Catholics “have to be changed”?

If Clinton is elected, does anyone imagine Clinton and her team will pick justices who respect religious liberty? Not a chance.

Professor Robert George has pointed out that while our Founding Fathers were a mixed lot when it came to religion, they all understood the importance of religious freedom. That’s why, he said, “our Bill of Rights begins with the words ‘Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.’ ” They knew that religious liberty was essential to “dignity of the person.”

The Clinton campaign e-mails have thus put the stakes of this election in sharp relief not only for Americans of faith but also for all those who care about human dignity. Clinton’s presidency would be a threat to the religious freedom of all Americans.
