The powers of financial capitalism had a far-reaching aim - nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences. The apex of the system was to be the Bank for International Settlements [BIS] in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations ... Each central bank sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world

The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is perhaps the most astounding piece of sleight of hand that was ever invented. Banking was conceived in inequity and born in sin. Bankers own the earth. Take it away from them but leave them the power to create money, and, with a flick of a pen, they will create enough money to buy it back again. Take this great power away from them and all great fortunes like mine will disappear, for then this would be a better and happier world to live in. But, if you want to continue to be the slaves of bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, then let bankers continue to create money and control credit.

What the Bilderberg group intends is a global army at the disposal of the United Nations, which is to become the world government to which all nations will be subservient... A UN army must be able to act immediately, anywhere in the world, without the delay involved in each country making its own decision whether to participate, based on parochial considerations?
--Henry Kissinger at a Bilderberg meeting, August 1991
The Plan is for the United States to rule the world. The overt theme is unilateralism, but it is ultimately a story of domination. It calls for the United States to maintain its overwhelming superiority and prevent new rivals from rising up to challenge it on the world stage. It calls for dominion over friends and enemies alike. It says not that the United States must be more powerful, or most powerful, but that it must be absolutely powerful.
--Vice-President Dick Cheney - West Point lecture, June 2002
What is distinctive about the new mode of authoritarianism is that it is driven by a criminal class of powerful financial and political elites who refuse to make political concessions. These elites have no allegiances to nation-states and do not care about the damage they do to workers, the environment, or the rest of humanity.

It is not unreasonable for even the most ardent supporter of President Trump to feel the air slowly leaking out of their balloon of optimism. I for one, was never a huge fan, although I thought he was hands down the only candidate in the Republican field that would not be a Hillary clone to one degree or another and could stand up against the expected onslaught of the corrupted, criminal corporatists within both political parties.
The simple fact that the "establishment" within both political parties appeared to be rabidly against his election and still remains opposed, covertly or openly to his Presidency, was a badge of honor and bright ray of hope that this was a man who would finally stand against the extraordinary power of the forces arrayed against not only the American people, but of all humanity.
In this blog, from its early days, the warning about the very real possibility that the power elites were intent on pushing America into World War III and imposing martial law across the land was a consistent core theme. Each global war over the past 100 years has pushed the world closer and closer to the stated goals of the Illuminati, the Fabians, the CFR, Round Table and other elite controlled, ideologically bounded societies and organizations whose goal was a One World Socialist Dictatorship by a technocratic Administrative State led, of course, by a small cadre of the privileged ruling families of wealth and blood. Warnings were loud and frequent that the forces arrayed against the global awakening could not be underestimated and that the levels of criminality, perversion and anti-democratic, anti-American were so great that the powers in control of America and the West would never relinquish their above moral and constitutional law privileges without a bloody, violent suppression.
As Trump and his generals cave to the pressures of the lurking shadows that have covertly ruled this nation off and on since Andrew Jackson and continuously since FDR ,the blood in the water will draw out all of the sharks waiting to tear him apart and that seek to drain the lifeblood out of the majority of Americans seeking a moral, sane and just soveriegn nation.
Going to war with Syria for regime change will herald the collapse of the willpower of those seeking to unthrone the elites empire of greed and dominance. It will bring blood to the hands of Donald Trump, a seemingly required ritual for all Presidents for many decades, as is perhaps the blood rituals of the Satanic pedophiles that have also occupied the Oval Office since Bush Sr. Already, it is clear that the same hands are at the tiller of State in our domestic and international financial and economic regime that have controlled it for their benefit and their comrades on Wall and Lombard Streets since Alexander Hamilton set about doing the gnomes of finances bidding. Now, the War State appears to be in charged along with their masters in the boardrooms of the Military Industrial Complex.
Trump’s Goldman Guys Are Dangerous | Mises Wire
As the Trump administration continues to try to figure where it wants to go with healthcare, his team at the Treasury is readying tax reform. Unfortunately, much like the Secretary Steve Mnuchin’s film Suicide Squad, initial optimism is facing the bitter reality of horrible early reviews.
After all, during the campaign there was much to like from Candidate Trump. He campaigned on cutting both income and corporate taxes while eliminating the estate tax all together He frequently bragged that it was going to be the “biggest tax cut since Reagan” (reality of the Gipper’s record aside). Trump focused more on economic growth than the deficit and even though he wrongly supported tariff increases in order to “win on trade,” he frequently rejected the creation of new revenue mechanisms.
Of course, on the campaign trail Candidate Trump also was quick to rightly bash the Federal Reserve, their partners on Wall Street, and the political establishment festering in the Washington swamp. After his election, he began to quickly partner with these very same forces. Most concerning was his leasing the US Treasury to Goldman Sachs with the appointment of Mnuchin and tapping Gary Cohn, who previously served as the bank’s COO, to chair the National Economic Council. While Trump’s economic team had largely stayed behind the scenes as the administration focused on healthcare, details are now emerging about what a Trump tax plan may look like.
Over 400 years ago, the Florentine statesman Niccolo Machiavelli engaged in a profound study of methods used by various rulers to attain power... The findings of Machiavelli and other students of power decree that to obtain power it is essential to ignore the moral laws of man and of God; that promises must be made only with the intention to deceive and to mislead others to sacrifice their own interests; that the most brutal atrocity must be committed as a matter of mere convenience; that friends or allies must be betrayed as matter of course as soon as they have served their purpose. But, it is also decreed that these atrocities must be kept hidden from the common people except only where they are of use to strike terror to the hearts of opponents; that there must be kept up a spurious aspect of benevolence and benefit for the greater number of the people, and even an aspect of humility to gain as much help as possible.
