What about our money?
It's not difficult to
understand. Every country can participate in the global
economy in a profitable way by trading or engaging with other
countries according to the comparative advantage of the costs
of production of its goods and services.
Large and well endowed
economies like the US can choose to make, sell, or engage in
any number of activities and do so effectively. But US
policy makers decided to concentrate the country's energies
in one specific area, and that strategic focus, while
once successful, is leading the country to its
decline and ruin.
The US, through its elected and
un-elected powerbrokers, has chosen to sustain itself by
plundering the wealth of other nations using the
comparative advantage of its overwhelming raw military
superiority and/or the power that simply accrues with the
control and wielding of enormous wealth.
The current administration, for
example, in attacking Iraq and Afghanistan, miscalculated
when it risked an estimated $3 Trillion to plunder Middle East oil and gas reserves.
We don't yet know for sure how this will
play out, but so far it looks like this gambit was
orchestrated by a group of incompetent amateurs who gambled away enough resources and goodwill to
bankrupt our country. In effect, they bet the entire
store on this one throw of the dice. Their gross mismanagement,
which springs from their philosophical and spiritual
immaturity, is unraveling at breakneck speed.
To cover up their incompetence,
they squandered half a century of accumulated
goodwill trying to cover up their hidden agenda by
American People that their war mongering was necessary to
protect national security. Their plot
included a series of fraudulent, criminal acts accompanied by
facilitating lies which resulted
in the effective overthrow of the legitimate government of the
United States, corrupting in the process... the
Constitution, the rule of law, critical government processes, including
the role of Congress, segments of the mainstream media, and
a large body of international jurisprudence.
Did they succeed? Many
elected officials and a great number of government
employees and corporate facilitators are co-conspirators
even though most may be oblivious to the overall implications,
dimensions, and context of the expanding plot. Slowly the
American people are waking up. We'll see.
And what about our money?
The conspirators resorted to the wholesale expansion of
the money supply as a political payoff to certain elite
constituents and to hide the obvious economic
consequences of their failed strategy. You can't see it
directly because they stopped printing M3
statistics in 2006. These dollars continue to
create asset bubbles in the housing market and in the stock
market, but this deceit is unraveling, as these
bubbles are unsustainable. The current credit
crisis and looming inflation make it impossible now to hide
the blunders and fraud that the conspirators pursued.
Soon everyone will see that it
was gross negligence, deceit and fraud that undermined the economy. The nation's
treasury has been plundered, the country's goodwill has
been squandered, the money supply has been devalued, and the
American dollar is at risk now of losing its preeminent
position as the international reserve currency. The collapse
of the US economy might follow, finally revealing once
and for all that the plot against the American
people and the people of other nations was more than a case of
incompetence. I call undermining, attacking, and
dismantling the Constitution — an act of treason.
Will America survive
this debacle as a democratic republic? That remains to be seen.
The answer to that question will likely depend on if, how, and
when the American people take responsibility for the
crimes that have been committed in their name
by a relatively small cadre of wealthy powerbrokers... who still believe that war, lies, intimidation,
plunder and murder offer an
economic comparative advantage over truth, honor, peace,
justice, and basic human rights.
If you still don't see how corruption,
greed, cowardice, death, destruction, war, and a shrinking economy are
inter-related and co-dependent, just be patient; one day you
just might have plenty of extra time on your hands to think about it.
