This commentary is emphatically not an endorsement of Trump as President. I have not voted since 1992 because, when the system gives the public a Hobson’s Choice, voting is pointless.
An age-old adage states that “people vote with their wallets.” The chart below suggests that this adage held true in 2016:
The graphic above (sourced from Northman Trader) was prepared by Deutsche Bank and the data is from the Fed. It shows that, since 2007 through 2016, U.S. median household net worth declined between 2007 and 2016 for all income groups except the top 10%.
Given that a Democrat occupied the Oval Office between 2008-2016, and given that the economic condition of 90% of all households declined during that period, it follows logically that empty promises of a Republican sounded better to the general population of voters than the empty promises of a Democrat.
In other words, the “deplorables” didn’t vote for Trump because they wanted a wall between the U.S. and Mexico or they wanted to nuke North Korea off the map, they voted for a Republican because the previous Democrat took money from their savings account.
The rest of the propaganda and rhetoric connected to the 2016 election, which was elevated to previously unforeseen levels of absurdity, was little more than unholy entertainment that served to agitate the masses. These two graphs explain a lot about the outcome of the 2016 “election.”
The ultimate form of political and economic power is the power to commit crimes with impunity. – John Titus
The Shadow of Truth is pleased to present a preview of, “All The Plenary’s Men,” the new film by John Titus (Best Evidence videos / Bailout Films). The term “plenary” in this context is defined as, “complete in every respect;” as in, “plenary power,” meaning, “absolute power.”
In his spectacularly prophetic dystopian novel, “1984,” George Orwell offered the following observation about power:
Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power.
The quiet revolution occurring behind the facade that is called “Washington, DC” for several decades has led to the complete hijacking of the U.S. Government by an entity nefariously known as, “The Deep State.” Those who warned about The Deep State previously were labelled conspiracy theorists. Now, with the help of Wikileaks, the idea of the Deep State is openly discussed even in the mainstream media. The Deep State is Orwell’s Big Brother.
The ultimate power is the power to commit crimes with impunity, meaning that the entity committing the crime does so free from fear of punishment. We saw this with the Iraq invasion in several respects. The invasion was never sanctioned by the UN Security Council or in accordance with the UN’s founding Charter. It was an illegal war waged by what has become the world’s most dangerous terrorist: The U.S. Deep State. Big oil is
part of the Deep State. Therefore, when Halliburton was caught charging the U.S. taxpayer $10/gallon for gasoline being sold to the military in Iraq, Halliburton was never punished.
Even more horrifying was watching the Too Big To Fail banks break ev
ery major securities law in the rule book leading up to the financial collapse of 2008 and escape free from any form of prosecution. Not only were these banks allowed to trample all over the law, but the Government used $800 billion of taxpayer money to keep the banks from collapsing and to enable the banks to pay large bonuses that year.
The primary theme underlying John Titus,’ “All The Plenary’s Men,” is that any entity that can commit crimes with impunity has risen above a nation’s sovereign law. In fact, that entity IS the sovereign authority. Thus, The Deep State is the sovereign authority standing behind the U.S. Government. The Deep State is comprised of not just the NSA, CIA and Pentagon, but also Big Oil, Big Banks, Big Healthcare and Big Technology.
“We’ve been swirling down the toilet as a nation since 2007” (John Titus). The Shadow Truth chatted with John about his upcoming film, for which he provided a thoroughly engrossing, if not chilling, trailer:
“De-cashing is defined as the gradual phasing out of currency from circulation and its replacement with convertible deposits…At least at the level of major countries and their currencies, the authorities could coordinate their de-cashing efforts. Such coordinated efforts are, in particular, important in the decisions to phase out large denomination bills for all major currencies, to use ceilings and other restrictions on cash transactions, and to introduce the reporting requirements for cash transactions or their taxation. For currency areas, a single de-cashing policy would be clearly preferable to a national one.”
The above text is a direct excerpt from an IMF Working Paper titled, “The Macroeconomics of De-Cashing” (LINK). Web-sleuthing by Rory Hall at The Daily Coin brought this to my attention. You can read his analysis here: “De-Cashing – Soft-Selling Financial Enslavement.”
In short, the IMF is now publishing working papers papers advising Governments how to “de-cash” their system in a way that produces the least amount of resistance from the populace: “In any case, the tempting attempts to impose de-cashing by a decree should be avoided, given the popular personal attachment to cash. A targeted outreach program is needed to alleviate suspicions related to de-cashing; in particular, that by de-cashing the authorities are trying to control all aspects of peoples’ lives, including their use of money, or push personal savings into banks.”
“De-cashing” is a “politically correct” term for “remove freedom from the pockets of the citizens by imposing on them a digital currency system.” The Paper presents the standard New World Order arguments against cash: “tax avoidance, terrorism financing and money-laundering.” Of course, all of those business endeavors are an integral part of the Too Big To Fail Bank business model. The benfits outlined in the paper are entirely unprovable: increase “financial inclusiveness?”; reduce illegal immigration; improve the environment (LOL, but I’m not kidding – that argument is in the paper).
The bottom line is buried in the paper: “Carrying cash is a human right and is written into constitutions, which therefore have to be changed. Social conventions may also be disrupted as de-cashing may be viewed as a violation of fundamental rights, including freedom of contract and freedom of ownership.”
With the passage of the Patriot Act, the Government ushered in its final solution to removing individual freedoms and imposing Totalitarianism. Taking cash currency away – and replacing it with a digital currency system is the last step required for the Government to take complete control over your life. If the IMF is publishing manuals suggesting the steps to take in order to “de-cash” the system, it means the implementation of such a system is right around the corner.
My guess is that the majority of the public will go along with the removal of cash from the U.S. financial system with less protest than when the Patriot Act was implemented and habeas corpus was removed via the Detainee Bill, which Obama converted into an official legislative act. Most Americans have become dumbed down to the point at which they don’t understand the implications of de-cashing the financial system. It’s like watching a barnyard full of chickens cheering at the appearance of Colonel Sanders.
The elitists in control of the western financial and political system as slowly taking away all of our rights and imposing totalitarianism on the populations. One of the primary tools they will soon implement is an electronic, digital currency system. This way they can monitor your income, spending and tax payments. It’s time to start fighting back, unless you are all okay moving into a “brave” new world in which everything you do is under the watchful eye of big brother.
One of the most effective means the elite use today to get their way and push a particular agenda is to make it “hip, swinging and very, very cool”. Another way is to simply tell you what is obsolete and “out dated”. Who wants to be “behind the times”? Certainly not someone who is looking for the next “really cool” gadget! No, this particular person wants to be on the “cutting edge” of the “next big thing”!
Enter the banking cabal and their desire to have total and absolute control of your life through your banking account and your means of transacting business. Think my “tin foil hat” is screwed on a little tight? Well, how about this gem that was released earlier today in England:
