***First, let's turn to the dictionary for some descriptive information about Robin Hood.
"""An English legend-12th century outlaw, who lived with his followers in Sherwood Forest, robbed the rich to help the poor. """Robber Baron-a nobleman of feudal times, who robbed people traveling through his domain; any number of U.S. capitalists of the late 19th century, who acquired vast wealth by exploitation and ruthlessness.
***During the 12th century, an English legend developed, that we still see in movies and hear about on television today in the 21st century. In 900 years the original Robin Hood and his band of merry men of Sherwood Forest probably have not changed much. Maybe a little better looking or better dressed, but still seen as defenders of the down-trodden, taking from the rich and giving to the poor!
***Now, let's shift our thinking about the original Robin Hood, to a modern 20th and 21st century scenario. Todays Robin Hood has traded in Sherwood Forest for the United States and possibly the world. Robin doesn't need riding clothes, but sports a three piece business suit OR just the casual look of tatered blue jeans, a ball cap, and a t-shirt labeled "Save the Squirrels". Robin's band of merry men are called bankers, politicians,bureaucrats, and environmentalists.
QUESTION: What really is an environmentalist? """ The dictionary tells us: an environmentalist is a person, who accepts the theory that the environment is of overriding importance in determining individual characteristics or a person working to solve environmental problems, such as air and water pollution, the exhaustion of natural resources, and uncontrolled population growth.
***STATEMENT: Gee, I think of myself as an environmentalist or conservationalist, I try not to pollute or overuse natural resources. You are quite correct, most of us are conservationalists, we care for the land, the water, and the air, doing our upmost to not cause problems or pollution. The differentiation is, many citizens consider themselves preservationalists. These individuals want to roll back the calendar, clock, or time table to an era when the land in the United States of America, was for the most part, unoccupied and undeveloped! Especially the land west of the Mississippi.
THE TIME TABLE:
- AMERICAN REVOLUTIONARY WAR....1775
- DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE...1776
- THE NORTHWEST ORDINANCE.......1785*
- THE U.S. CONSTITUTION,FRAMED AND ADOPTED.....1787
- THE U.S. CONSTITUTION,RATIFIED AND IN EFFECT.1789
- THE HOMESTEAD ACT.............1862*
- THE TIMBER CULTURE ACT........1873*
- THE FOREST RESERVE ACT........1871^
- THE TAYLOR GRAZING ACT........1934^
- THE FEDERAL LAND POLICY AND MANAGEMENT ACT...1976^
- REVERSE CONFISCATION OF LAND...1990s BY PRESIDENTIAL EXECUTIVE ORDERS AND UNRATIFIED U.N. TREATIES
- *Transfer of land to the people
- ^Reverse to lands held or taken by the U.S.Gov.
In the 211 years, since the ratification of the Constitution, the United States has come full circle from land give-away to land-confiscation. QUESTION: How did this happen?
***152 to 225 years ago, various groups throughout the world began devising ways to control the people and affairs of the world "their way". Groups, such as, the Illuminati, the Elders of Zion, the Communists, the Committee of 300, the Skull and Bones Society of Yale University, the Bilderbergers, the Club of Rome, the Royal Institute of Interntional Affairs (English version of the CFR), the Council On Foreign Relations (U.S. version of the RIIA), the Trilateral Commission, the United Nations Association, the Institute of Pacific Relations, Committees on Foreign Relations (affiliated with the CFR), European Union, Illuminized Freemasonry, The United Nations (League of Nation, a precursor to the U.N.), and many others.
***An interesting side-light: There are many who claim the Protocols of the Elders of Zion are a lie, a forgery, and any other description assigned to it, but when these Protocols are studied and compared to history past and current happenings, the correlation is astounding, even down to Hillary Clinton's "It Takes a Village". The Protocols were written about 1854 and apparently published the first time in 1903, after Victor E. Marsden translated the works.
***ANOTHER interesting report, not to well known by the American public, THE REPORT FROM IRON MOUNTAIN, supposedly commissioned in 1963, by Robert McNamara, Secretary of Defense for the Kennedy Administration. Whether the work was of a think tank of fifthteen unidentified men or a lone author, it included a new definition of peace. Create a world government in which all nations are disarmed and disciplined by a world army. PURPOSE OF THIS SUPPOSED STUDY: Explore ways to "stabilize society" in the absense of war. AKA:Controlling people. Recently this work has been call a fraud, forgery, or whatever. Again, all an individual has to do is compare the report to 30 some years of history and recent events.
Included was increased ways the Federal Government could affect our lives or control people!
The President's Council on Sustainable Development or PCSD, defines Sustainable Development "...to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs" (Really doesn't say much, does it?) The concept of sustainable was first developed by the United Nations Brundtland Commission. Sacrificial lifestyle and stringent population control are two main components of sustainable ideology. ***QUESTION: In my observation, many of the promoters of this environmental sacrificial ideology are the rich and famous. Are they going to live in a hut with few amenities like they want everyone else to do?
WORLD SOCIALISM is the environmentalists, as well as many others, PRIMARY GOAL! The International Agenda calls for earth stewardship, simple lifestyles, and the main crux of the agenda is redistribution of wealth. Whose wealth or money? Yours, mine and anyone else's that they can include.
"THERE IS NO CONGRESSIONAL AUTHORITY FOR THE PCSD. CONGRESS HAS NOT ADOPTED A NATIONAL POLICY OF SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT. The Administration has. A major part of the Administration' sustainable development policy is to by-pass Congress as much as possible, and to transform federal, state and local governments into administrative units for the implementation of UN POLICIES." Emphasis added. "The mission of the PCSD is to: forge concensus on policy; demonstrate implementation of policy; educate Americans on sustainable development, and evaluate and report progress." "The first mission, to 'forge consensus', ought to read 'force acceptance of UN policies.' It must be understood that 'consensus' does not mean agreement by the majority." Eco-logic staff, January,'98 Free American, page 43-47.
LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT THE MONEY SYSTEM. ***For years, I had been asking questions who, how, and why concerning the Federal Reserve System and the secrecy surrounding it. During the decade of the '90s, information began to surface with the writing of several books and the Internet.
***In 1995, I came across a gold mine of information, "THE CREATURE FROM JEKYLL ISLAND" by G.Edward Griffin. He gives historical background, as well as, an explanation of the process that can be understood by any individual. Mr. Griffin presents this history in an interesting fashion, not in cronlogical fashion, but more in the form of events or happenings.
MR. GRIFFIN IDENTIFIES THE FEDERAL RESERVE AS A CARTEL. On page 8, he summarizes the Jekyll Island meeting, that changed the life and times of the United States of America.
"THE PURPOSE OF THIS MEETING ON JEKYLL ISLAND was not to hunt ducks. Simply stated, it was to come to an agreement on the structure and operation of a banking cartel. The goal of the cartel, as is true with all of them, was to maximize profits by minimizing competition between members, to make it difficult for new competors to enter the field, and to utilize the police power of government to enforce the cartel agreement. In more specific terms, the purpose and, indeed, the actual outcome of this meeting was to create the blueprint for the FEDERAL RESERVE SYSTEM." Emphasis added.
On Page 11, Mr. Griffin further describes the cartel structure. "The composition of the Jekyll Island meeting was a classic example of cartel structure. A Cartel is a group of independent businesses which join together to coordinate the production, pricing, or marketing of their members. The purpose of a cartel is to reduce competition and thereby increase profitability. This is accomplished through a shared monnopoly over their industry which forces the publlic to pay higher prices for their goods or services than would be otherwise required under free-enterprise competition."
LET'S LOOK AT A CURRENT EXAMPLE OF THE FEDERAL RESERVE POWER. ***The Federal Reserve Chairman, Alan Greenspan announced during the fall of 1999, they would print and have on hand for possible Y2K problems, about $50 million extra in cash. Who authorized this move, apparently Federal Reserve Chairman Greenspan, not the U.S. Congress.
***Now that the Y2K Commputer "crisis" has come and gone (there are some very interesting notions on that one-check the February,2000 issue of the Free American, plus I have my own version) what has happened to that extra "50 mill" they created? Chances are, not much!
***The money is either in a vault or it disappeared back into the computer it came from! Mr. Griffin discusses the bank vault or computer chip theory in Chapter 10 of "The Creature From Jekyll Island", called "The Mandrake Mechanism". On page 207, he summarizes, "The American Dollar has no intrinsic value. It is a classic example of fiat money with no limit to the quantity that can be produced. Its primary value lies in the willingness of people to accept it and, to that end, legal tender laws require them to do so. It is true that our money is created out of nothing, but it is more accurate to say that it is based upon debt. In one sense, therefore, our money is created out of less than nothing. The entire money supply would vanish into bank vaults and computer chips if all debts were repaid." Emphasis added. Web site for G. Edward Griffin realityzone
THE UNITED STATES CONSTITION, ARTICLE I, SECTION 8: THE CONGRESS SHALL HAVE POWER...TO COIN MONEY, REGULATE THE VALUE THEREOF, AND OF FOREIGN COIN AND FIX THE STANDARD OF WEIGHTS AND MEASURES;...***The Constitution does not say one word about creating and delegating congressional authority to an entity i.e. The Federal Reserve.
"On December 23, 1913, the Federal Reserve System, which serves as the nation's central bank, was created by an Act of Congress. The System consists of a seven member Board of Governors with headquarters in Washington,D.C. and twelve Reserve Banks located in major cities throughout the United States."
"The seven members of the Board of Governors are appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate to serve 14-year terms of office. Members may serve only one full term, but a member who has been appointed to complete an unexpired term may be reappointed to a full term. The President designates, and Senate confirms two members of the Board to be Chairman and Vice Chairman, for four-year terms."
"Today the Federal Reserve's duties fall into four general areas:
The information in italics comes from a government web site: www.federalreserve.gov/pubs/frseries/frseri.htm
***As you will notice above, it is stated that the Senate confirms the individuals appointed to be Chairman and Vice Chairman, and the Federal Reserve Board confers with various individuals inside and outside of government. However, no one individual or group, such as Congress, has oversight of the Federal Reserve System. They are accountable to no one! A number of Congressmen have introduced legislation calling for auditing of the Federal Reserve, but for some reason, it just never seems to get anywhere!!!
In further researching the money system and the Federal Reserve, I came across NORFED OR THE NATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR THE REPEAL OF THE FEDERAL RESERVE ACT AND THE INTERNAL REVENUE CODE. The following comes from the NORFED site:
"MONEY IS MAN'S ONLY CREATION". "...man actually creates something out of nothing. A piece of paper of little value is printed so that it is worth a piece of lumber. With different figures it can buy the automobile or even the house. It's value has been "created" in the true meaning of the word."
"Auto makers sell their cars for 1% to 2% above the cost of manufacture and it is considered good business. But money 'manufacturers' have no limit on their profits, since a few cents will print a $1 bill or a $10,000 bill. That profit is part of our story, but first let us consider another unique characteristic of the thing-money, the love of which is the 'root of all evil'." (The Bible states in 1st Timothy 6:10--"For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.")
"An adequate supply of money is indispensable to civilized society."......"Remove money or even reduce the supply below that which is necessary to carry on current levels of trade, and the results are catastrophic. For an example, we need only look at America's Depression of the early 1930's."......"The United States of America in 1930 lacked only one thing: an adequate supply of money to carry on trade and commerce. In the early 1930's, bankers, the only source of new money and credit, deliberately refused loans to industries, stores, and farms."
***I must interject, the Stock Market Crash of 1929. The Crash of '29 was not an oops or an uh oh, it was an overextention of credit. We appear to be sitting at about the same place seventy one years later, with the possibility of a bubble that could burst and we would see the economic picture change overnight. If you study that era, you will notice certain people i.e. the bankers, the elitists, the insiders, the big boys, or whatever you call them--never missed a step!!! Author, G.Edward Griffin believes the two events, the crash and the depression, to be separate entities.
THE NORFED GROUP STATES, "MONEY FOR PEACE? NO! MONEY FOR WAR? YES!"
"World War II ended the 'depression.' The same bankers who in the early 30's had no loans for peacetime houses, food and clothing, suddenly had unlimed billions to lend for Army barracks, k-rations and uniforms! A nation that in 1934 couldn't produce food for sale, suddenly could produce bombs to send free to Germany and Japan!
NORFED or the National Organization for the Repeal of the Federal Reserve Act and the Internal Revenue Code has some very interesting thoughts and ideas. web site: www.norfed.org/
They state "Money is man's only creation". *** I would carry that one step further. Government systems are a creation of man also. Some governments, but not many, have tried to follow God's direction rather than Satan's destruction, but invariably control, manipulation, and corruption sets in. Our founding fathers were certainly headed in the right direction, but some 225 or so years later, our country and our magnificent U.S. Constitution are under major assault and have been for many years.
***This assault has many forms. Some individuals and groups want to replace our republic form of government and our free enterprise system with socialism, fascism, or at worst communism. The assault on our free enterprise and money system started long before many of us were born. Unfortunately it has taken years for many of us to figure out what is going on, others haven't a clue.
ANOTHER STOCK MARKET CRASH OR DEPRESSION??? Thought: something like this couldn't happen now, we have come to far and we have computers! ***Our financial "house of cards" has not changed or improved that much in seventy-one years. We may be more educated or informed, we do have computers, and instant communication, but the possibility does exist---OUR ECONOMY IS STILL BASED ON DEBT AND OUR MONEY IS CREATED OUT OF NOTHING! We hear every day how good the economy is. Where? When? How? Most of the people we know---nothing has changed, especially wages! THE MODERN DAY ROBIN HOOD AND HIS BAND OF MERRY MANIPULATORS DOES NOT WANT US TO REALIZE HOW FRAGILE THE ECONOMY IS OR THAT THE "GLOBAL ECONOMY" IS GRADUALLY REPLACING OUR OWN. We have had it pointed out to us many times through the news medias, that we should expect to pay more for postage, gasoline, and etc. because it costs more in Europe and other countries. Excuse me, but I live in the United States of America, not some other country!
***If you look back at 1929, the bankers and their friends could see what was coming and were prepared. Even today, most of us are not that privileged, no matter what our income level is. At least half, if not more of the people living in the United States, live on a very tight budget with maybe some savings and a credit card or two.
According to NORFED, "This simple but terrible, law (The Federal Reserve Act of 1913) completely removed from Congress the right to 'create' money or to have any control over it's 'creation', and gave that function to the Federal reserve Corportion. This was done with appropriate fanfare and propaganda that this would 'remove money from politics' (they didn't say 'and therefore from the people's control') and prevent 'Boom and Bust' from hurting our citizens. The people were not told then, and most still do not know today, that the Federal Reserve Corporation is a private corporation controlled by bankers and therefore is operated for the financial gain of the bankers over the people rather than for the good of the people. The word 'Federal' was used only to deceive the people."
NORFED further points out "...the Government must go to the 'creators' for(example) $1 billion. But, the Federal Reserve, a private corporation, doesn't just give it's money away! The Bankers are willing to deliver $1 billion in money or credit to the Federal Government in exchange for the Government's agreement to pay it back with interest! So Congress authorizes the Treasury Department to print $1 billion in U.S. Bonds, which are then delivered to the Federal Reserve Bankers. The Federal Reserve then pays the cost of printing the $1 billion (about $1000) and makes the exchange. The Government then uses the money to pay it's obligations. What are the results of this fantastic transaction? Well, $1 billion in Government bills are paid all right, but the Government has now indebted the people to the Bankers for $1 billion on which the people must pay interest! ...THE U.S. GOVERNMENT IS INDEBTED TO THE BANKERS FOR OVER $1 TRILLION ON WHICH THE PEOPLE PAY OVER $1OO BILLION A YEAR IN INTEREST ALONE WITH NO HOPE OF EVER PAYING OFF THE PRINCIPAL."
FRACTIONAL RESERVE BANKING
Thought: If you think that fractional bank reserves are not such a bad idea, try thinking about this. The interest an individual or family pays to use money created out of nothing is:
Inflation: An unstable rise in price levels resulting from an increase in cirulating currency and a mounting demand for available commodities and services; any overissue of a country's currency, especially paper currency not redeemable in specie, according to the dictionary. When money is created out of thin air, based on debt, it is inflationary! This inflation is built in, with the current system, we have no choice. When the government or the news medias talk about inflation rates, it is subsequently more than they quote, due to the built in factor!
Fractional Reserve Banking is taking say $10.00, sub-dividing it, $9.00 to loan while holding $1.00 in reserve, but still having the original $10.00 on the books! $10.00 is rather simplistic, the same ratio of reserving 10 percent, whether you are dealing with $10.00 or a 1 million dollars, the results are the same.
This internalizes inflation or builds it into the fractional reserve process. The NORFED group calls it "check-kiting on an enormus scale." You and I both know, we as individuals would be jailed immediately for doing this. That leads to a bigger question---Why can banks, under the guise of a quasi-government front, i.e., The Federal Reserve, a corporation, manufacture money out of nothing? Why does Congress, our elected representatives, not do something about the sham? Several congressman have tried to introduce legislation, to no avail! The unlimited supply of spending money allows Congress to do what they want without the necessity for tax increases. Also, it allows presidential administrations more lee-way in talking about budgets and spending restraints, while doing what they choose.
***Several presidents have come crossways of the money establishment. They died or were injured in the process. Is it possible, in our life time, that President Kennedy's assassination could well have been their handy work?!? President Kennedy was working on issuing United States currency before his abrupt departure.
A LOGICAL QUESTION THEN FOLLOWS: WHAT COULD BE DONE TO CHANGE AN ECONOMIC SYSTEM, BASED ON DEBT, MANUFACTURED AT WILL? G.Edward Griffin devotes a chapter in his book, "Creature From Jekyll Island", to just such a solution. I will not try to repeat what he has so wisely written, the chapter, "A Realistic Scenario", page 565, gives good guidelines to just such a solution. It would not be easy, but it could be done. To order his book and other references: realityzone
***Another deception is the "Budget Surplus" touted by the Clinton Administration and some members of Congress. With a several trillion dollar national debt, and a $100 billion plus interest bill every year, there is no way we could have a surplus. Even with the $100 billion being interest due on created, fiat, or ficticious money, Congress and the Administration has obligated "we the people" to pay. Your tax dollars at work!
***If we could get today's Robin Hood and his band of merry manipulators to admit to and end their greedy ways, we would all be better off many times over. Well, that's as likely to happen as the sun setting in the eastern sky, so that leaves you and I. The money used to pay interest on so many facets of our existence, would solve a lot of problems if used wisely. Interest paid comes from your savings or salary, above and beyond the created money. It would also end the hold that the money monopoly has over all of us, whether we are employed or the employers. Business owners frequently are at the mercy of the bankers, not to mention the consumer.
***Think about this information, study further, figure out what you could do. Maybe not just you alone, but working together with other citizens of these United States of America!
