Racing for the exits

7 March 2013:  On February 20, 2003, a deadly fire caused by the use of pyrotechnics resulted in the deaths of 100 people and the injuries of 230 others at the Station nightclub in West Warwick, Rhode Island. According to official investigative accounts, it took  less than six minutes for the nightclub to be fully engulfed in flames and completely destroyed. In just over five minutes, the lives of many people were changed forever, and no one inside of the club saw it coming until it was too late.


At present, the United States of America is metaphorically comparable to that nightclub, and the citizens of the U.S. as its patrons. Our elected officials (past and present), the Federal Reserve, and the Wall Street elite are the individuals who lit the fuse. Unlike the individual who lit the pyrotechnic display at the nightclub, however, those involved in destroying our national economy are arsonists who are intentionally burning our country to the ground. They have no allegiance to the U.S., her citizens, or anything beyond their collective lust for a global economy.

Others are intentionally blocking some of the exits. Unfortunately, too few people understand what is taking place, or they have become transfixed by the unchecked flames of the wayward pyrotechnics of the international bankers. You are being looted, right now, as you read this.

 Some call it “doom porn”

With the Dow recently hitting a new record high, I will undoubtedly be accused of authoring “doom porn,” especially by those who follow the Keynesian model of economics that, among other factors, brought us to this very point in our economic history. After all, look around; people are still buying big ticket items, taking vacations, and living a relatively normal life, and are seemingly unscathed by our current debt crisis.

I can hear it now… “What crisis?” We are experiencing our eighth longest “bull market” since 1928, thanks to the efforts of Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, among others. But it is nothing more than a Ponzi scheme and you, dear reader, are the unwitting victim.

Much like our current financial situation, there were people inside the nightclub that initially believed that the fire that consumed the venue was a controlled part of the act. Others knew there was a problem and headed for the exits. Some escaped unharmed, some were injured, while others perished. Some were trampled or crushed to death in their race to the exits. So too will it be in the United States.

Controlled demise

There are many who believe that what they are seeing with regard to our economy and the health of our dollar is under control, and they are indeed correct.  The difference, however, is that the people in charge of the pyrotechnics of our economy and our nation are arsonists. They do not have the best interests of the citizens of the U.S. in mind. They are driven by their own greed, by the promise of a seat at the global table of a new, international currency, and by the agenda of the international banking cabal.

It is critical for everyone to understand that, like a Ponzi scheme, the current system is being designed to collapse. The central bankers and the politicians who are in bed with the investment firms have defiled capitalism, and have created a Fascist state right in front of us.

If you don’t believe that we have been played for suckers, not just in the U.S. but on a global scale, just think about the political appointments of Mario Draghi, Italy’s prime minister, Mario Monti, and the former Greek prime minister Lucas Papademos. What did each have in common? Goldman Sachs.

What about our outgoing Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner? Not only did Geithner work for Kissenger and Associates, he served under Treasury Secretaries Robert Rubin and Lawrence Summers, the latter having served as the Chief Economist for the World Bank. Summers also played a key role in lobbying Congress for the repeal of the Glass Steagall Act, which armed the arsonists with the matches.

Additionally, Timothy Geithner’s father, Peter Geithner, just happened to work with Barack Hussein Obama’s mother at the Ford Foundation, where he headed the foundation’s Asia Program. Small world. Or perhaps something more nefarious? To quote Sherlock Holmes from The Adventure of the Blanched Soldier,  “But is it coincidence? Are there not subtle forces at work of which we know little?”

They are intentionally setting up the American economy to fail. The proof is there for all to see, if one simply looks. It’s a fatal combination of the Cloward-Piven strategy, an  enhanced version of Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s “New Deal,” and Lyndon Johnson’s “Great Society,”  with each feeding off the others in order to obliterate the middle class. The agenda is to convert a nation of citizens into subjects, except on a global scale.

You might think that we’ve heard all of this before, and you have. So what’s different this time?

Approaching critical mass

Recently, billionaires Warren Buffet, John Paulson, and (of course) George Soros have sold massive volumes of U.S. stocks and equity positions. Could it be that they know something that the average, hard-working American doesn’t? To anyone paying close attention, I believe that question answers itself. They have successfully found the exits and left the nightclub well ahead of anyone else.

There is a larger agenda, however, that no one seems to want to bring up or discuss. It’s the agenda that was created a century ago with the creation of a central bank, known as the Federal Reserve. It’s the ultimate government sanctioned Ponzi scheme that creates money out of nothing, something that would result in a prison sentence for anyone who is reading this.

The Federal Reserve (by means of its very existence, and its actions with complicit political leaders) has managed to debase and devalue our currency, which decreases our buying power. They have done so without oversight or accountability. And it’s only going to get worse until it reaches critical mass. And it will. When it does, there will be casualties, pain, and unimaginable suffering by those victimized by the unbridled lust of the arsonists.

Black Swan event

When the fire engulfs our nation, it will be undoubtedly heralded as a “Black Swan” event, or one unseen except by the benefit of 20-20 hindsight. This, of course, will be a lie. The hand-wringing by the elected officials, and the crocodile tears shed by the enlightened economists must be seen for what they are – if they can be seen from their remote villas or their underground safe-houses. They must be held accountable for their treachery, their treasonous activities.

The arsonists know exactly what they are doing, and are waiting for the right moment to do it. They are looting us first, robbing from us as much wealth they can before pulling up the stakes. In addition to selling each of us into financial slavery, they have sold our children and grandchildren into bondage as well. And so far, we have let them. Most have fallen for their deceptions and lies, either by their blind adherence to their own normalcy bias, or by blissful ignorance.

Whatever the trigger event might be, and whenever it happens, there will be a rush to the exits. By then, it will be too late.

For those who dare to demand any accountability of those who sold us out (the treasonous bankers, politicians, and economist carnival barkers), a wall of para-militarized troops will be waiting, with their shiny new MRAP (mine resistant, ambush protected, armored vehicle), and their own assault weapons. But only after the average, law-abiding citizens of the last bastion of freedom (the United States) have been effectively disarmed.
