They, the Fed & the Treasury & to lesser degrees the SEC,
have built into the financial system the element of Chaos
which we have seen materialize as 'Junk Bonds' or 'derivatives',
CDOs, SIVs, MBS, credit-swaps and all this toxic-paper created in the last
there is no changes to outlaw this type of fraud, the mechanisms
are only being re-jiggered so that the newer credit/mortgage crud is
just re-wrapped in new swaddling clothes... and released on the public,
both domestic and foreign

This is crazy...I have no idea what to do, I am in Canada, but I am sure I will experience atleast some of this.
I tried to PM you, but I don't have enough posts, could you link me to some good websites that sell books with info on Tesla, Royal Rife, etc. I dont want biographies though, but the inventions/research/theory.

I'll see what I can dig up... I have to go to work now, but will be back later with information...
"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 meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements 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 power to coin money and regulate the value of the currency is among the most important responsibilities and functions of government. That the US government in 1913 turned over this public function to a group of private bankers is astounding.
As a consequence, almost one hundred later, the US and its citizens are now on the edge of bankruptcy, indebted up to their eyeballs to the very bankers they gave the power to coin their money and regulate their currency, private bankers who are even now being bailed out by America taxpayers with money made available to them by their fellow-bankers at the Federal Reserve. HELLO AMERICA , ARE YOU THERE? CAN YOU HEAR? ARE YOU EVEN LISTENING?
we have in this country one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve Banks. The Federal Reserve Board, a Government board, has cheated the Government of the United States and the people of the United States out of enough money to pay the national debt. These twelve private credit monopolies were deceitfully and disloyally foisted upon this country by the bankers who came here from Europe and repaid us for our hospitality by undermining our American institutions...The people have a valid claim against the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve banks
The US military-industrial complex is still too powerful to confront and/or stop. With the bankers, they are responsible for America 's increasingly insolvable problems, their self-interests blinding them to what they have done to the nation.
Eisenhower couldn't stop them, neither could Kennedy nor can Ron Paul. Only they can stop themselves and this they will soon do; albeit inadvertently as the foundation of their power, the US economy, succumbs to the damage they have inflicted upon it.
We are approaching the most serious economic crisis since the great depression, and American life is going to be disrupted in ways that we cannot now imagine. The reason is that there is too much debt, and the new bankruptcy law means that, because those debts can never be discharged, the economy will never get the chance to restart itself that has brought it out of so many slumps in the past. What is worse, the ordinary American debtor is not to blame. There is only one debtor to blame. It is the federal debtor.

Was just reading this a minute ago. Absolute crap! How we can just hand over more power of the US economy to a private banker group?
Your right the whole thing needs to be abolished. I love how they use the recent economic woes to justify giving them more power. They are part of the reason we are in the mess anyway.
