“Interest Is The Invention of Satin!” Are Bankers The Devil?

Published

on

Since usury (charging interest on a loan) is forbidden in both Christianity and Islam, why is it a practice throughout the world?

“Debt’s ancient origin is reflected in biblical admonitions [2,000 years ago] about debt, and the interest payments which often accompany debt. So Solomon warns, “The rich rules over the poor, and the borrower is the slave of the lender.

In Exodus, when God specifies the ordinances for the Jewish people, he includes the admonition that, “If you lend to any of my people with you who is poor, you shall not be to him as a creditor, and you shall not exact interest from him.” —Tad Crawford, Secret Life of Money, 1994

Unfortunately, “God” did not extend that admonition to all humanity.

For context, I think it important to provide some perspective on the power of banking. Here are some observations by 2 Popes, 6 US Presidents, a Founding Father of the US, the 1st Chancellor of the German Empire, the Chairman of the US House Banking Committee for 12 years and member of Congress for 46 years, a leader of the Russian Revolution, and others who would know.

I sincerely believe that banking institutions are more dangerous than standing armies. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people to whom it properly belongs.” — President Thomas Jefferson

Jefferson was an economist, as well as an attorney.

“…In the Colonies we issue our own money. It is called Colonial Scrip. We issue it in proper proportion to the demands of trade and industry to make the products pass easily from the producers to the consumers. In this manner, creating for ourselves our own paper money, we control its purchasing power, and we have no interest to pay to no one.” — Benjamin Franklin, Founding Father

An good idea is a terrible thing to waste.

“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 their fathers conquered.” — President Thomas Jefferson

A stern warning that has gone unheeded.

History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means to maintain their control over governments by controlling money and its issuance.” — President James Madison

His political wisdom seems to be matched by his understanding of economics.

“The division of the United States into federations of equal force was decided long before the Civil War by the high financial powers of Europe. These bankers were afraid that the United States, if they remained as one block, and as one nation, would attain economic and financial independence, which would upset their financial domination over the world.” — Otto von Bismarck, 1st Chancellor of the German Empire

He should know; he used their financing to create the German Empire, eventually ruled by Kaiser Wilhelm and family until World War I, which also saw the end of the Ottoman Empire.

“The government should create, issue and circulate all the currency and credit needed, to satisfy the spending power of the Government and the buying power of the consumers…The privilege of creating and issuing money is not only the supreme prerogative of Government, but it is government’s greatest opportunity…By the adoption of these principles…the taxpayers will be saved immense sums of interest. Money will cease to be master and become the servant of humanity.” — Abraham Lincoln

His assassination followed his public pronouncement.

“Whoever controls the volume of money in any country is absolute master of all industry and commerce…And when you realize that the entire system is very easily controlled, one way or another, by a few powerful men at the top, you will not have to be told how periods of inflation and depression originate.”– July 2, 1881. President James Garfield

Garfield didn’t learn from Lincoln and was assassinated within weeks of his statement.

“On September 1st, 1884, we will not renew our loans, under any consideration. On September 1st, we will demand our money. We will foreclose and become mortgagees in possession. We can take two-thirds of the farms west of the Mississippi, and thousands of them east of the Mississippi as well, at our own price…Then farmers will become tenants as in England.” — 1891, American Bankers Association as printed in the Congressional Record of April 29, 1913.

This was 22 years after it was said, and the same year the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 was enacted by the US Congress.

“These International bankers and Rockefeller — Standard Oil interests control the majority of newspapers and the columns of these papers to drive out of public office officials who refuse to do the bidding of powerful corrupt cliques which compose the invisible government.” — President Theodore Roosevelt

As Hank Williams, Jr. sang, Teddy went and broke the “Family Tradition”

“This Act establishes the most gigantic trust on earth. When the President signs the bill, the invisible government by the Monetary Power will be legalized. The people may not know it immediately, but the day of reckoning is only a few years removed….The worst legislative crimes of the ages is perpetrated by this banking bill. — Representative Charles Lindbergh (R-Mn)

What was the raison d’etre for his grandson’s kidnapping? Hmmm.

A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely and dominated Government in the civilized world, not a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the rule of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of men.

The growth of a nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men who, even if their action be honest and intended for the public interests, are necessarily concentrated upon the great undertakings in which their own money is involved and who necessarily, by reason of their own limitation, chill and check and destroy genuine economic freedom. — President Woodrow Wilson, The New Freedom: A Call for the Emancipation of a People, Doubleday, Page Company, New York, and Garden City, 1913.

Was this an admission, or a confession, or both?

“If you want to continue being the slaves of bankers and pay the cost of our own slavery, let them continue to create money and control credit.”

Sir Josiah Stamp, Director of Bank of England, 1920

The British invented, instigated, and instituted the system of chattel slavery, which Capitalism facilitated. Who would know better than a Director of England’s Central Bank?

“The State does not function as we desired. The car does not obey. A man is at the wheel and seems to lead it, but the car does not drive in the desired direction. It moves as another force wishes.” — Vladmir Lenin, Leader of the Russian Revolution

From a man secretly financed by banking interests, and sent to Russia to lead the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution.

The course of Russian history has indeed been greatly affected by the operations of international bankers…the Soviet Government has been given United States Treasury Funds by the Federal Reserve Board…acting through Chase Bank…England has drawn money from us through the Federal Reserve Banks and has re-lent it at high rates of interest to the Soviet Government…the Dnieperstory Dam was built with funds unlawfully taken from the United States Treasury by the corrupt and dishonest Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve Banks.” — Rep. Louis T. McFadden (D-PA), Banking Committee Chair

You knew this, right?

On the one side there is the party which holds the power because it holds the wealth; which has in its grasp all labor and all trade; which manipulates for its own benefit and its own purposes all the source of supply, and which is powerfully represented in the Councils of State itself. On the other side there is needy and powerless multitude, sore and suffering.” — Pope Leo XIII

Popes are also economists.

“Rapacious usury, which, although more than once condemned by the Church, is nevertheless under a different form but with the same guilt, still practiced by avarice and grasping men…So that a small number of very rich men have been able to lay upon the masses of the poor, a yoke little better than slavery itself.” — Pope Leo XIII

Was Pope Leo ever accused of being antisemitic?

In our days not alone is wealth accumulated, but immense power and despotic economic domination is concentrated in the hands of a few…This power becomes particularly irresistible when exercised by those who, because they hold and control money, are able to govern credit and determine its allotment, for this reason supplying, so to speak, the lifeblood to the entire economic body, and grasping, as it were, in their hands the very soul of the economy so that no one dare breathe against their will.” — Pope Pius IX

Another antisemitic Pope? Pope Alexander VI certainly wasn’t.

All of this leads to the Central Bank of the United States; the Federal Reserve System (12 privately owned banks) of the United States of America that determine the issuance and cost of money world-wide. Interest, the cost of money, is set by the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC), which is composed of the 7-member Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, and 5 of the 12 Federal Reserve Bank Presidents (1 seat is permanently reserved for the President of the 2nd District Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Wonder why? Ever heard of JPMorgan Chase? 😊).

This subject matter of interest/debt, the cost of money, may not be of immediate interest to you, but it is what ultimately determines the quality of your life. Your understanding of interest/debt will either set you free, or further enslave you. Here is what Thomas Alva Edison had to say about interest.

“If a nation can issue a dollar bond, it can issue a dollar bill. The element that makes the bond good makes the bill good also. The difference between the bond and the bill is the bond lets the money broker collect twice the amount of the bond and an additional 20%. Whereas the currency — the honest sort provided by the Constitution — pays nobody but those who contribute in some useful way.

It is absurd to say our country can issue bonds and cannot issue paper money. Both are promises to pay, but one fattens the user and the other helps the people. If the currency issued by the people were no good, then the bonds would be no good, either. It is a terrible situation when the government, to ensure the national wealth, must go into debt and submit to ruinous interest charges at the hands of men who control the fictitious value of gold.

“Interest is the invention of Satan.”

Our Mind Is Powerful: Prayer Is A Source!

Published

on

Yesterday, I was commenting to my youngest daughter, Akima, that I would pray for a friend of mine. He was hospitalized and not doing very well. His wife had asked me to say a prayer for his successful recovery. Inquisitively, she asked, “dad, if you are an atheist, how can you say a prayer for your friend?”

Here is my response to her, and you.

I pray, but not to a spook ‘God.’ I believe prayer is a conversation with self. It is a request to self, and a reminder to self, of what I want to occur. For me, there is no ‘spook god’ involved in the process.

Prayer is self-programming the human computer (our mind) to provide for our individual, as well as collective human need. And just like the computer, you can only get out of it what you put into it, something the ruling elite fully understand, and implement via religion.

“Religion keeps the poor from killing the rich.  Napoleon Bonaparte

“Religion is an opiate for the masses.” — Karl Marx

“We have used the Bible as if it were a mere special constable’s handbook, an opium dose for keeping the beasts of burden patient while they were being overloaded, a mere book to keep the poor in order.”  Charles Kingsley, Canon of the Church of England

“When the missionaries came to Africa, they had the Bible and we had the land. They said: ‘Let us pray. ‘ We closed our eyes. When we opened them, we had the Bible and they had the land.” — Jomo Kenyatta, Independence Leader of Kenya

And one more, from an Amer-African centered perspective.

It’s not what you know that hurts you. It’s what you know, that just ain’t so. — Leroy ‘Satchel’ Paige

There are many who discuss the origins and history of religion, but no one does it better than Will Durant in The Story of Philosophy and The Lessons of History . Here are three examples from Durant, and though they refer directly to Christianity, the same could be said about the other major religions as well.

“Religion does not seem at first to have had any connection with morals. Apparently (for we are merely guessing, or echoing Petromius, who echoed Lucretius) ‘it was fear that first made the gods — fear of hidden forces in the earth, rivers, oceans, trees, wind and sky’. Religion became the propitiatory of worship of these forces through offerings, sacrifices, incantation, and prayer. Only when priest used these fears and rituals to support morality and law did religion become a vital force and rival the state. It told the people that the local code of morals and laws had been dictated by the gods. It pictured the god Thoth giving laws to Memes for Egypt, the god Shamash giving Hammurabi a code for Babylonia, Yahveh giving the Ten Commandments and 613 Precepts to Moses for the Jews, and the divine nymph Egeria giving Numa Pompilius laws for Rome. Pagan cults and Christian creeds proclaimed that earthly rulers were appointed and protected by the gods. Gratefully, nearly every state shared its lands and revenues with the priests.

…The Church was manned with men, who often proved biased, venal, and extortionate. France grew in wealth and power and made the papacy her political tool. Kings became strong enough to compel a pope to dissolve that Jesuit Order which had so devotedly supported the popes. The Church stooped to fraud, as with pious legends, bogus relics, and dubious miracles; for centuries it was from a mythical Donation of Constantine: that had allegedly bequeathed Western Europe to Pope Sylvester I (r. 314–35), and from the “False Decretals”(c. 842) that forged a series of documents to give a sacred antiquity to papal omnipotence.

…History has justified the Church in the belief that the masses of mankind desire a religion rich in miracle, mystery, and myth. Some minor modifications have been allowed in ritual, in ecclesiastical costume, and in Episcopal authority; but the Church dares not alter the doctrines that reason smiles at, for such changes would offend and disillusion the millions whose hopes have been tied to inspiring and consolatory imaginations. Catholicism survives because it appeals to the imagination, hope and the senses; because its mythology consoles and brightens the lives of the poor.”

A very wise man told me that “work is better than prayer.”

I believe that work is the actualization of what is programmed in our mind. Work is the physical activity that one carries out as a result of the data that the brain has processed to determine what must be done to sustain life.

If your brain tells you that you must serve the European in order to sustain life, then that’s what you will do. Religion is the great programmer of the mind to ensure that behavior. Presently, humanity serves the ruling elite.

And speaking of the ‘mind’, Carter G. Woodson, in his book The Miseducation of the Negro, 1932, had this to say regarding the mind of the Negro.

“No systematic effort towards change has been possible, for taught the same economics, history, philosophy, literature, and religion which have established the present code of morals, the Negro’s mind has been brought under the control of his oppressor, the problem of holding the Negro down, therefore, is easily solved. When you control a man’s thinking you do not have to tell him not to stand here or go yonder. He will find his ‘proper place’ and will stay in it. You do not need to send him to the back door. He will go without being told. In fact, if there is no back door, he will cut one for his special benefit. His education makes it necessary.

The same educational process which inspires and stimulates the oppressor with the thought that he is everything and has accomplished everything worthwhile, depresses and crushes at the same time the spark of genius in the Negro by making him feel that his race does not amount to much and never will measure up to the standards of other peoples. The Negro thus educated is a hopeless liability of the race”.

Sound familiar? That was over 100 years ago, and the same conditions exist today.

Power is required to be a free people. Caucasian/European power comes from the barrel of a gun.

Whoever said the pen is mightier than the sword obviously never encountered an automatic weapon.” — General Douglas MacArthur

MacArthur said it facetiously, mocking General Bonaparte’s famous “The pen is mightier than the sword” speech.

“There are only two powers in the world, saber and mind; at the end, saber is always defeated by the mind.” — Napoleon Bonaparte

Our power comes from our mind.

“Our life is shaped by our mind. We become what we think.” — Buddha

The Mysterious ‘Invisible Hand’ Is White, Not Black!

Published

on

It seems as if we are always dealing with something mystical or transcendental when it comes to an explanation of phenomena that humans can’t see, hear, feel, smell, or touch, whether it be ‘God’, the ‘Devil’, or an ‘Invisible Hand.’ In the West, Spookism must prevail.

In religion folk are taught to walk by faith, not by sight. Don’t believe what you see with your own two eyes; believe what you are told by “God’s” vicegerent on Earth.

In economics, Adam Smith, working for his European masters — the banking cartels — developed an incredibly useful tool for them. Smith convinced people that an ‘invisible hand,’ controlling economic activity, was good for society and would produce a fair and equitable distribution of humanity’s need for food, clothing, shelter. In today’s world, that list must also include the health care, education, communication, and transportation needs of society.

Needless to say, that hasn’t happened. And it won’t happen. Because it can’t happen.

The ‘hand’ controlling global economic activity is not ‘invisible’, though it is definitely hidden from most folk; but it is hiding in ‘plain sight’ if one has eyes to see.

Here is one example, regarding the issue of the cost of goods and services, which many people are not able to pay, as a result of the never-ending cycle of inflation. Cost/price is of utmost importance today, particularly among the poor and impoverished.

The prices of goods and services on this planet are controlled by a number of factors.

1. Supply and Demand

2. Government Intervention, or lack thereof

3. Cost of Production (materials and labor)

4. Inflation, which is a general increase in prices over time (Capitalism requires an ever-expanding market)

5. Exchange Rates between two currencies also affect the prices of imported and exported goods and services

All of the above are controlled by the European banking cartels.

Capitalism, their Western economic ideology, strengthens, fortifies, and governs European hegemony and their global domination; at a severe cost to CHOSSA (Children of Stolen and Sold Africans) and other Indigenous peoples in the Americas, Africa, Asia, Australia, and the South Pacific.

To further elucidate, I must return to the guru of modern economic theory, Campbell R. McConnell, author of Economics, 1987 McGraw-Hill, New York, NY, now in its 21st edition.

Professor McConnell detonates a very powerful atomic bomb, the sound of which will soon be heard around the world. His nuclear truth completely shatters the myth of capitalism as a fair, just, and equitable economic system.

He states that“we should emphasize that there is nothing particularly ethical about the price system for distributing output”. There is nothing ethical about the price system as a mechanism for distributing output fairly.

The price system, a Western invention, developed during the evolution of capitalism, via the Monetary Economy (1694), gives the European complete control over the marketplace, as well as the control and use of our Earth’s natural and human resources. The Caucasian gives value to everything by controlling both the supply and demand of all resources, thereby allowing him to assign a “price” or cost to each of them. Men are making those decisions, not an ‘invisible hand.’

To increase the devastation of his detonation, McConnell further blasts, “Those households which manage to accumulate large amounts of property resources by inheritance…or by crook will receive large incomes and thus command large shares of the economy’s output”which in turn only produces more property resources, commanding a still greater share of the society’s output. [“by crook”, the European rich get richer, and the poor people of color get poorer].

The Europeans have made it their business to steal all of the world’s natural resources and they gained tremendous wealth with those resources acquired; and they now determine the price of our labor, as well as the price for the goods produced by our labor.

With this present structure, what would make you think that you can ever achieve financial independence in America, Europe, or any part of the planet ruled by a white supremacist economic ideology that is structured solely to maintain European hegemony over the world and its natural resources, and the people and their human resources?

As long as:

1. Banks are privately owned, and issue a sovereign Nation’s currency

2. Interest is charged, and Debt is an acceptable business practice

3. There is private ownership of Power Generation (nuclear, electric, fossil)

4. Health Care is privately owned, and a cost to citizens

5. Foreign ownership of Sovereign lands is permitted

6. There is cost for Education

7. Media is operated, controlled, and owned by Oligarchs and their families

8. The Utilities (electricity, water, gas, internet) of a nation are privately owned

9. There is no efficient, cost-effective Public Transportation System

10. War is the only means to conflict resolution

11. The development of Artificial Intelligence is privately owned and financed

12. Aeronautical operations and Space exploration is privately owned

13. Privately owned businesses exploit sovereign land (metals and minerals)

14. The business of Insurance is privately owned

15. White supremacy/racism is alive

16. Federal Judges are appointed, and not elected; democracy doesn’t exist

17. A nation’s food production is controlled by cartels and conglomerates

18. Nationalism, Imperialism, and Militarism are endemic to Western Culture.

There will be:

1. Slavery

2. Poverty

3. Famine, Sickness and Disease

4. War, and its Devastation

5. Man-made Climate Change

6. Inflation and Deflation

7. Unemployment

8. Crime

9. No civil, or human rights

Yesterday I received some feedback from my recent essay, Capitalism Is Good For White People: Why Is It Bad For Black Folk? It was suggested that I provide a list of why Capitalism is bad for black folk because the headline begged the question, without any specific reasons being enumerated. I believed the narrative sufficiently explained that an economic ideology based on lies, while simultaneously empowering white folk, cannot, nor will not, ever be good for black folk. I hope the above list helps to better understand why Capitalism is bad for black folk.

Capitalism Is Good For White Folk: Why Is It Bad For Black Folk?

Published

on

The guru of modern economic theory, Campbell R. McConnell, author of Economics, 1987 McGraw-Hill, New York, NY, now in its 21st edition, in his opening remarks tells us:

Two fundamental facts provide a foundation for the field of economics [capitalism]. It is imperative that we carefully state and fully understand these two facts, since everything that follows in our study of economics depends directly or indirectly upon them.

a. Society’s material wants, that is, the material wants of its citizens and institutions, are virtually unlimited and insatiable.

b. Economic resources — the means of producing goods and services, are limited or scarce.

These are lies that underpin and provide the foundation for the European economic ideology and philosophy called Capitalism. Their foundation was weak and defective from its inception.

It is absurd to say that the “material wants of its citizens and institutions are virtually unlimited or insatiable.” Human wants are tied to human needs. Humans, and their needs are not unlimited or insatiable. In fact, physical human needs are quite quantifiable, and can be satisfied.

Within range, humans can only consume a quantifiable amount of food before their bodies reject it (through regurgitation). We can easily determine the amount of food (for nutritional purposes) that humans need on a daily basis. With regard to clothing, it is also a simple task of quantifying the clothing needs of humans.

Depending on geography and ecology, reasonably, one can only wear one pair of shoes at a time. One can only wear one pair of pants or a skirt at a time. One can only wear one shirt or blouse at a time. The same for a hat, or coat, or underwear. From the standpoint of shelter, it is the same thing. A human can only live in one house at a time, sleep in one bed at a time, and only use one toilet at a time.

Yes, you could postulate that one could want more than three meals a day, want more than a closet or dresser full of clothes, and/or want two or three residences scattered throughout the country. But let’s be certain that those wants are based on greed, not need. It really goes to a value system based on individualism, not one based on a communal spirit of collective cooperation.

In the second fundamental assertion providing the foundation for capitalism McConnell states, “Economic resources — the means for producing the goods and services are limited.” It is an equally absurd lie used to justify their control of the natural and human resources that provide the means for producing the goods and services necessary for human growth and development.

Economic resources are in such significant supply that they can be said to be unlimited. One kernel of corn, planted in the ground, will yield a stalk with seven ears of corn containing 100 kernels on each ear. This represents a return of 700 to 1. Nature is plentiful, bountiful, and beautiful.

“Surplus, not shortage, has been the driving force in the building of markets, creating supply, and determining prices. Indeed, it can be argued that a central concern of the modern world economic system [capitalism] during this century has been to organize and promote markets so that they are protected from ruinous surplus.

Two important cases illustrate the point.

…with the Nixon administration the government formally encouraged the concept of the agribusiness — that is, supported management of the surplus by the private sector, not by the government. As a practical matter, that meant disposal of the surplus was increasingly the job of the major grain companies, not the government.

Ironic as it may seem, the recent humanitarian concerns for making the food surplus available to millions of poor, undernourished people must be viewed as almost incidental to the overall march of U.S, agricultural policy, which has sought the winning of a profitable and stable market for the surplus over the last century.

…Surplus, not shortage, has governed the oil industry since its inception. Through the Standard Oil Trust, John D. Rockefeller, sought to organize the industry so that is would not be overwhelmed by unbridled competition fed by surplus.

…One reason the oil companies moved into the coal industry was because they feared that this abundant resource might be turned into a devasting, and uncontrollable river of synthetic oil.” — Wealth by Stealth, Rolf Hackman, 2013

There were many goals and objectives to be achieved from the holocaust called World War II, including the birth of the State of Israel; but we must not forget that both Japanese and German scientists had simultaneously developed synthetic oil that threatened the world-wide supply. The Germans produced synthetic oil from coal, while the Japanese produced synthetic oil from plants, both abundant resources on our planet.

Another reason for the war was to control the rich minerals found in Africa.

Mineral exploration and exploitation of Africa by European and American interests served a major purpose. Africa supplied their need for gold, diamonds, and other ‘precious’ gemstones and metals; as well as iron, chrome, titanium, platinum, and uranium, just to name a few of the minerals used in the production of weapons, including most importantly, nuclear weapons, in order to maintain their hegemony of the world and its peoples.

“Historically, the extraction of raw materials was the business of large international corporations, some of them founded in the colonial period, which obtained rights to the minerals for relatively insignificant sums. Little processing of the raw material was carried out in the poor countries.

Many of the international corporations that operate in raw materials are vertically integrated — that is, they control each stage of the production-to-consumer process. Very little of raw or processed materials are traded on the open market through such exchanges as the London Metals Exchange.

In other words, as long as the poor countries are dependent on transnational corporations to reach markets abroad, there is little real meaning to their sovereignty over natural resources. [The history of the Ghana Cocoa Industry is a great example] It is a legal, not a commercial, distinction.

Much of the industry in raw materials today remains based on the mine, as it has been for centuries. And it is the mine which sums up the meaning of the business, or bitter relationships between first and third worlds, of the debasement of humankind. Since the fourteenth century when modern warfare was first invented, the output of the mine has been closely dependent on military industry, for it yields up the stuff with which we make cannon and shells and warships and planes.
