A Vent on Politician Lies and Bank Influence

One of the truest truisms of life is that politicians lie..

Pretty much all of them..

From Lincoln promising during the 1860 campaign for President that he would not interfere with slavery where it had presently existed ("We think slavery a great moral wrong, and while we do not claim the right to touch it where it exists, we wish to treat it as a wrong in the territories, where our votes will reach it" - March 6, 1860)..
To Woodrow Wilson promising to keep America out of World War I ("There is such a thing as a nation being so right that it does not need to convince others by force that it is right." - May 10, 1915)

To Nixon and his insistence he wasn't a crook to Reagan not recalling Iran-Contra to Bush Sr saying "Read my lips.. No new taxes"..

To Clinton saying he did marijuana but did not inhale and emphatically stating "I did not have sex with that woman, Monica Lewinsky.." to W Bush declaring 'Mission Accomplished' to Obama lying about well.. really everything..

Lie upon Lie..
But as we said, they all do it..  They fill the populace with such hope and promise during an election then always let the supporters and sycophants down..

Back in 2012, French President (then candidate) Francois Hollande uttered the following words:

"I’ll tell you who my opponent is, my true opponent.. He has no name, no face, no party. He will never run for office. He will not be elected. And yet he governs. My opponent is the world of finance.”

He promised he’d rein in that world. He’d impose a tax on all its financial transactions, what he called at the time “a real tax,” and he’d eliminate stock options, and he’d curtail bonuses, and he’d do a million other things.

And the huddled French masses began to dream
So then when French megabank BNP Paribas with a slew of charges related to the bank’s dealings with Iran in violation of US sanctions, succumbed to intense pressure and agreed to pay a $8.9 billion penalty (the largest penalty for a European bank ever) and plead guilty, you'd think Hollande would have been pleased..

He wasn't..

And when his foreign minister stated the other day that "Finance is our friend", you can see another example of a political leader selling his or her soul to the banks in order to stay in power.
And as politicians of every political stripe lie and lie, there is still an ultimate truth:

No democratically elected government in a major country – not in France, not in Germany, least of all in the US – is allowed to oppose the banks and the central banks that stand behind them..

And if there are penalties to be handed out for malfeasance, the amounts are to always be nominal so shareholders are not hurt too deeply

Most important, no executive heads are to ever roll via arrest and prosecution because that would be too much of a disruption to the rigged markets and crony crapitalism..

Oops.. Meant to say 'capitalism'
And no President or Public Official will ever direct the populace toward acts of civil disobedience for the people's benefit..

Its like local sports talk radio that will bitch and moan 24/7 about the horrific state of their sports teams but never have the guts to openly suggest people stop attending live games..

Never bite the financial hand in glove that fingers you..

Or um.. something like that..

As this summer finishes itself off in the next couple months, we will all experience the autumn hard push known as the 2014 mid-terms..
And candidates R & D seeking to be Senator, US Representative, Governor, Mayor, etc will all say virtually the same things..  They're proud to be Americans, we're #1 and our enemies just hate our freedom

They will be asked a million-billion questions and always have a timely response..  Will promise This and That and better days are ahead

'So much good stuff heading your way if and only if, you vote for Me'

And few to none will take on the banks and the Fed with any real venomous verbal bite, and even fewer will act upon it once elected

There's just no place in government for mavericks unless you're a pretend one who just enjoys the nickname monicker like John McCain
As we've said time and time again, amazingly only three nations in the entire world are not indebted to global banks and/or the IMF...

Cuba, Iran and North Korea..

All others are indebted and by extension owned..

As Mayer Rothchild (1744-1812) once famously and accurately stated:

"Let me issue and control a nation’s money and I care not who writes the laws"

And bankers certainly do not care what a candidate says or does to get elected as long as they know once in office which side their bread is being buttered
Why do we keep making such a big to-do about something most people short of those of incredible thrift and financial practicality can not avoid dealing with?

Because its vital in life, as stated in the Art of War' to "Know thy Enemy"

And equally important to know who or what is causing the slow, steady and systematic destruction of your way of life and the future of your children..

Or maybe you just not wish to know..
