“[The natural right to be free of the debts of a previous generation is] a salutary curb on the spirit of war and indebtment, which, since the modern theory of the perpetuation of debt, has drenched the earth with blood, and crushed its inhabitants under burdens ever accumulating.”
–Thomas Jefferson to John Wayles Eppes, 1813
On Aug. 10, 2005, at a well-crafted photo op, Bush signed the $286.5 billion transportation bill at a Caterpillar facility in Montgomery, Ill., promising jobs – the big carrot. During the 2004 pretend election cycle coverage on the tube, a middle-aged man up in Ohio yelled into the microphone of a reporter, “This election isn’t about Vietnam, it’s about jobs.” There are two problems here, though: (1) There is no money to pay for this $286.5 billion appropriation and (2) the federal government is not supposed to create jobs – except under a communist system.
There is no money in the U.S. Treasury. As I write this column, the congressionally created “national debt” is nearly $8 trillion. Every penny of that $286.5 billion dollar transportation bill will have to be borrowed from the privately owned central bank, deceptively called the “Federal” Reserve. In other words, Congress is spending only debt which creates more debt out of thin air, further enslaving all of us to enrich the bankers beyond imagination.
How can you spend $286.5 billion dollars if your account is already overdrawn by over $7.9 trillion? In the case of these inept, ignorant and cowardly members of Congress, they simply continue to borrow away your children and grandchildren’s future. Actually, our children and grandchildren have no future except financial bondage to the international banking cartel.
It was putrid when Clinton was in office and the ignorant media lap dogs – as well as duplicitous members of Congress – declared there was a surplus. Such a fat lie was never challenged properly. By the time that national disgrace left office, the “national” debt in 2000 was over $5.6 trillion. How do you have a surplus when you’re over $5.6 trillion dollars in the hole?
The same applies for Bush and it has nothing to do with his endless “war on terrorism.” Right now, every man, woman and baby in this country each owes the international banking cartel $145,000 with the interest compounding every day. Is anyone beginning to see the swindle going on here?
Those jobs that Bush used to hoodwink the workers at the Caterpillar plant in Illinois are going to cost each worker far more than they could ever imagine. Let me give you one example of how this thievery by the “Fed” works:
Congressional Record, House, Sept. 29, 1941, page 7583, Congressman Wright Patman on this very issue:
Mr. Speaker, our government debt at this time is approximately $50 billion. By the time that it’s paid, it will aggregate $100 billion … The amount of 100 percent is due to the interest charges … I have never yet had anyone who could, through the use of logic and reason, justify the federal government borrowing the use of its own money … I believe the time will come when people will demand that this be changed. I believe the time will come in this country when they will actually blame you and me and everyone else connected with this Congress for sitting idly by and permitting such an idiotic system to continue.
I have talked to the secretary of the Treasury and members of the Federal Reserve Board and other people who are supposed to know about the money system of our country. They know this can be done easily and conveniently and will save money … We have what is known as the Federal Reserve Bank System. That system is not owned by the government. Many people think that it is because it says “Federal Reserve.” It belongs to private banks, private corporations. So we have farmed out to the Federal Reserve Banking System that which is owned exclusively, wholly, 100 percent to the private banks – we have farmed out to them the privilege of issuing the government’s money!
So, you see, by the time the interest to the private banking cartel is paid, this transportation bill will have cost, not $286.5 billion, but somewhere in the neighborhood of a half trillion dollars. Americans will say, “But, we pay our taxes for the government to make our roads safer and other services.” Wrong. If you click here you will see two pages from an official report to Ronald Reagan. There you will read that not a single penny of your “income” tax dollars funds a single function of the government. It all goes to pay the interest to this private banking cartel and their stockholders (you cannot own stock in these “Federal” Reserve banks, only the elite who rule the world) and for unconstitutional transfer payments to the communist United Nations, the World Bank and other new world order institutions.
We must clean out Congress and get constitutionalists elected in ’06 who have the courage to follow Andrew Jackson in booting out the central bank and restoring America to a constitutional republic. Time grows short.
