The Bush-Clinton Dynasty, Obama, the New World Order, and the Banking Cartel
"In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way."
- President Franklin Delano Roosevelt
Barack Obama, pre-positioned by the global elite to succeed George W. Bush, rode into office with a gigantic approval rating to rival that of Bush after 9/11, along with a complete power monopoly over the executive, the legislative and the judicial branches, as well as widespread media support. His administration has expanded the global elite's plan to meltdown the economy and move toward a one-world currency, and has allowed the bankers to continue their unprecedented centralization of power. Obama, who controls nothing and is merely a front man installed in the White House by the puppet masters, naturally has filled his administration with insiders.
Republicans and Democrats serve the interests of the elite, not the people, and have for at least five decades since Kennedy was killed. Republicans and Democrats are two parties set up to give us the illusion of choice and to promote the false left-right paradigm. Political offices (including the Presidency) are bought, paid for, and controlled by the global elite through organizations such as the Federal Reserve, Trilateral Commission, Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), Royal Institute of International Affairs, and Bilderberg Group. What people don't realize is that Clinton, Bush, and most of those who came before them in the 20th century, did not orchestrate any conspiracies—they were simply puppets being controlled by outside forces.
Political pundits like Rush Limbaugh keep the country bitterly divided among partisan lines, yet partisanship is insignificant in terms of the shadow government agenda. The global elite are now engaged in forming imperialism to govern the world. By dividing the voter through the political party system, they have gotten the people to expend their energies fighting for questions of no importance rather than fighting to expose the elite's plan to enslave and rule the world.
"A resolution to the economic crisis can only begin with an independent mass movement of the working class that aims to break the political stranglehold of the financial elite over society - the development, to be blunt, of a revolutionary movement." - Tom Eley, Global Research, February 8, 2009
Historically, the definition of a free person is someone who owns his own labor. Serfs were not free, because they owed their feudal lords (the government of that time) a maximum of one-third of their labor. Nineteenth century slaves were not free, because their owners could expropriate 50% of their labor. Today, no American is a free person. The lowest tax rate (not counting state income, property tax and sales tax) is 15% Social Security tax and 15% federal income tax. The “free American” starts off with a 30% tax rate, the position of a medieval serf. In medieval Europe, when tax rates reached beyond 30%, serfs rebelled and killed their masters. ― Paul Craig Roberts, "Obama’s Attack on the Middle Class," March 31, 2009
"The real rulers in Washington are invisible and exercise power from behind the scenes." - Felix Frankfurter, Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court
New evidence of the banking cabal's control of both the Republican and Democratic parties in the U.S. surfaced in 2006 when Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that she would not allow impeachment hearings into detailed allegations of crimes by President Bush. In July, 2008, Barack Obama's legal advisor (and University of Chicago law professor) Cass Sunstein said that, as president, Obama would not prosecute crimes that Bush and his confederates committed while in office, such as torture and unlawful surveillance. Sunstein admitted that "egregious crimes" should not be ignored, implying that he and Obama consider Bush's crimes as "non-egregious." This indicates that the cabal will continue its brazen criminal behavior under either a McCain or Obama presidency―and proves once again that there is a power bloc that controls both parties. ― Hermes Press
"The invisible money power is working to control and enslave mankind. It financed Communism, Marxism, Zionism and Socialism. All of these are directed to making the United States a member of a World Government (the United Nations) in which we will have only one vote to oppose 82 nations." - American Mercury, December 1957
Note the bank mergers and aquisitions since 1998, especially those of Citigroup (1998, 2002), Bank of America (1998, 2004, 2005, 2007, 2008), Washington Mutual (1998, 2000, 2002, 2008), JP Morgan Chase (2000, 2004, 2008), Wachovia (2001, 2004, 2006, 2007, 2008), Wells Fargo (1998, 2000, 2008), and Bank of New York Mellon (2007). Also note that JP Morgan Chase (which acquired Washington Mutual on September 25, 2008) and Wells Fargo (which acquired Wachovia on October 3, 2008) are among the nation's largest nine banks, which were "partially nationalized" later in 2008.
According to New American's Thomas R. Eddlem in his article titled CFR Corporate Members Get Lion's Share of Bailout Funds:
Newspapers are fixated upon $160 million in bonuses given to American International Group (AIG) executives. And it’s nice to know where the millions are going (note: the bonuses could have been cancelled had the federal government let the company go bankrupt, as officials should have). But where are the trillions in TARP, TALC and Federal Reserve Bank bailout funds going?
The man in charge of administering the bailouts is Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, who served as a staff member of the New York City-based Council on Foreign Relations before being hired in 2003 to head the New York City branch of the Federal Reserve Bank (Fed).
As the vice chairman of the Fed’s Open Market Committee, Geithner is probably a poor choice to get the nation out of its current economic mess. He served as Alan Greenspan’s number two man at the Fed, so Geithner is as responsible as anyone for facilitating the severity of the real estate and financial bubble and its subsequent collapse. After all, the Fed was the driving force behind the asset bubble, inflating the bubble larger and larger through artificially low interest rates and an inflationary easy-money policy.
Under Geithner and his predecessor (former Goldman Sachs CEO Henry “Hank” Paulson), the majority of bailout funds have been awarded to high-level donors to Geithner's former employer: the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). Here’s a survey of TARP bailout awards to the CFR’s corporate members (there are a total of only a little more than 200 corporate members at all levels):
Among the “Founders” (those who give $100,000 or more to CFR) can be found:
“President’s Circle” members (those who give $60,000 - $99,999 to CFR) received the following bailout funds:
- American Express Company: $3.39 billion TARP
- Goldman Sachs: $10 billion TARP, plus a separate Federal Reserve bailout and more than $13 billion of the allotment to AIG (below)
- Merrill Lynch: $45 billion through its corporate parent, Bank of America, which is also a CFR Premium corporate member, plus $6.8 billion of AIG’s bailout funds
“Premium” members (those who give $30,000 - $59,999 to CFR):
- American International Group (AIG): $182 billion in total TARP/TALF funds to date
- Citibank: $50 billion TARP
- Morgan Stanley (a spinoff of JP Morgan): $10 billion TARP
That’s a total of more than $1 trillion in bailout funds for CFR corporate members, easily the lion’s share of the total bailout funds awarded to date. CFR membership seems to have its benefits, and then some.
- Bank of New York/Mellon Corporation: $3 billion TARP
- Freddie Mac: Sharing with Fannie Mae $1.25 trillion (that’s $1,250 billion in mortgage securities being purchased from the Federal Reserve Bank)
- Chrysler: $4 billion TARP, plus $1.5 billion TARP for Chrysler Financial
- JP Morgan Chase: $25 billion TARP
- CIT Group: $2.33 billion TARP
So why is no one asking questions about why most of the funds are going to the former employers of our Treasury secretaries? Perhaps because many of the entities who should ask "why" are also CFR corporate members. Among the financial press, the CFR counts among its members Bloomberg, General Electric (NBC, CNBC, MSNBC), News Corporation (Fox, Fox Business), Standard and Poor's, ABC News, Time Warner (CNN, Time magazine, etc.), Moody's, and McGraw Hill (book publishers).
Somebody should ask the question why the same people who brought us this financial crisis are now bringing us the "cure," and why that cure necessarily involves financing former employers of the people making the decisions.
"For more than a century, ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure―one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it. - David Rockefeller, Memoirs, 2002
