Hi ATS,

There are some really interesting developments occurring on the World stage right now. It takes keen eyes, patience, and a little bit of critical thinking skills to ferment what is actually unfolding before Our very eyes; We all have these skills.

I kept reading how Wal Mart is now switching to paying employees with debt cards. Nothing wrong with that; just cheaper to accomplish??? How about looking at it from the stand point of a cashless society; it's not so harmless then. Just think.
Read here:
online.wsj.com...


Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the nation's largest private employer, is eliminating paper payroll checks in the U.S., transferring workers' earnings to a debit card if they decline direct deposit to a bank. Wal-Mart is the biggest company yet to make the move that it said will save paper and money. It estimates the move will save 257,572 pounds of paper a year. It declined to specify the savings but said the shift will reduce its payroll costs. Government agencies such as the Social Security Administration have recently begun using similar cards to dispense payments to benefit recipients. Some Wal-Mart workers last month received earnings electronically in the form of credit to a MasterCard Inc. debit card. The program will roll out nationally this month, though many of Wal-Mart's 1.4 million U.S. workers will continue to receive paper checks for months while it is fully implemented. About half of its U.S. workers now receive paper checks


Not only Wal Mart, but also the Social Security Administration is wanting to change completely over to a direct deposit system; both will force You to have bank accounts. Some of us don't want any! I can literally "hear" a few People out there saying big deal; Your nutty paranoid....Well, keep reading; I've got solid reasoning.

While We common folk are ever-increasingly forced into the proverbial Fold; The below article shows how CEO's don't make 30 times what the average worker makes, but a WHOPPING 319 times what the average common folk worker; like You, and I.

Now go figure at thinking about that. Wrap Your mind around that number for a minute, and then take a look at who is, and has been the direct beneficiary of the TARP bailouts........ You got it, The CEO; the same People who have run Our economy, and lively hoods into the ground; down for the long dirt nap.

According to the Institute for Policy Studies (www.ips-dc.org) which has been tracking executive pay since 1994, there's a widening compensation gap between U.S. CEOs and American workers, and there's no end in sight. In a brief article on the topic by Yahoo!'s Heesun Wee, the average ratio between salaries for CEOs and the American worker in 2007 was 344 to one. This figure dipped slightly last year, 2008, to 319 to one. But according to the Institute, this figure is set to rise, which, according to IPS's director John Cavanagh is "really worrisome." "If nothing is done -- if the federal government does nothing this fall in terms of CEO pay, the ratio will likely go up this year and there will be huge stock option gains by the CEOs of some of the worst-run companies," Cavanagh proclaims.


So, We are being herded like common herd animals, or Sheeple into the fold of a cashless society, and now We are seeing how the Elite, and their main minions are separating out from the herd.

Now this in itself made a verbal, "huh" echo from my mouth. Go figure, the Elite must feel they are in such pristine control, that they are openly starting to stray, and show themselves from the herd; the big problem with that is many, many of us aren't sheeple, but People. We are strong, and I don't think the Elite are as smart as they think of themselves.

Now I found another awesome article here www.globalresearch.ca...
"Global War and Dying Democracy: The Revolution of the Elites"..... I think it should have read something along the lines of "rise of the elites"; sounds more terminatorish.


Any ways the quotes below are to some of the more pertinent exerts; says me





The National Intelligence Council report, Global Trends 2025, stated that many governments will be “expanding domestic security forces, surveillance capabilities, and the employment of special operations-type forces.” Counterterrorism measures will increasingly “involve urban operations as a result of greater urbanization,” and governments “may increasingly erect barricades and fences around their territories to inhibit access. Gated communities will continue to spring up within many societies as elites seek to insulate themselves from domestic threats.”[1] Essentially, expect a continued move towards and internationalization of domestic police state measures to control populations.
Hey, interestingly enough, Blackwater XE seems to be filling the gap quite nicely in the USA!! We need, I mean the Elite need someone to act as the sheep dog of the herd, and I present XE; already in action.




Further, the prospects of war are increasing with the deepening of the economic crisis. It must be noted that historically, as empires are in decline, international violence increases. The scope of a global depression and the undertaking of restructuring the entire global political economy may also require and produce a global war to serve as a catalyst for formation of the New World Order. The National Intelligence Council document, Global Trends 2025, stated that there is a likely increase in the risk of a nuclear war, or in the very least, the use of a nuclear weapon by 2025, as, “Ongoing low-intensity clashes between India and Pakistan continue to raise the specter that such events could escalate to a broader conflict between those nuclear powers.”
These People have it right on the money, but I think their time frame is a little off. I give it another 2 months MAXIMUM until the USA(that's us) will be thrown into a war with Iran.........Just watch!!!!!!!!




War should not be understood as a recent phenomenon in regards to accelerating capitalism through expansion and transition, as this has been a continual theme throughout the history of capitalism. The notion of “surplus imperialism” is what describes the function and role of war and militarism within capitalism. The concept is built around the function of “constant war.” Ellen Wood explains the notion of ‘surplus imperialism,’ in that, “Boundless domination of a global economy, and of the multiple states that administer it, requires military action without end, in purpose or time.”[13] Further, “Imperial dominance in a global capitalist economy requires a delicate and contradictory balance between suppressing competition and maintaining conditions in competing economies that generate markets and profit. This is one of the most fundamental contradictions of the new world order.”
Holy Cow Batman, did You just read what I did??? Basically it is straight from the book 1984. To keep the populace=sheeple, and economy in line, and functioning as the Elite need, a global war is needed. Hence the coming reason for a war in the Middle East, and more than likely as well in the Russian Satellite nations...See the Caucasus.




The new system being formed is not one based upon any notion of competition or “free markets” or “socialist morality”, but is, instead a system based upon consolidation of power and wealth; thus, the fewer, the better; one government, one central bank, one army, one currency, one authority, one ruler. This is a much more “efficient” and “controllable” system, and thus requires a much smaller population or class to run it, as well as a much smaller population to serve it. Also, with such a system, a smaller global population would be ideal for the rulers, for it limits their risk, in terms of revolt, uprising, and revolution, and created a more malleable and manageable population. In this new capitalist system, the end goal is not profit, but power. In a sense, this is how the whole capitalist system has functioned, as profit has always acted as a means and lever to achieve power. Power itself, was the goal, profit was merely the means of achieving such a goal.
Order Out Of Chaos; will a New World Order become a reality. We are seeing the developing stages of the final stage play necessary to bring the Elites dream to fruition. Just look at all the "hair trigger" disasters, and plagues mentioned in ATS; You don't think the Elite use these very things in a slight of hand to control the outcome??? It really will appear almost like magic to us.




Currently, we are witnessing, in the wake of the massive economic crisis, a revolution in the global political economy. This revolution, like all revolutions, is not simply a top-down or a bottom-up revolution. Historically, revolutions are driven by a combination of both the grassroots and the elite. Often, this materializes in clashes between social groups, such as with the American Revolution. Although, the American Revolution itself was primarily waged by the American landed elite against the foreign imperial elite of Great Britain. The French Revolution was the combination of the banking and aristocratic elite co-opting, manipulating and controlling the grassroots opposition to the established order. The Russian Revolution, also being able to see rising social tensions among the lower classes, was co-opted by an international banking elite.
Ouch!!! few phrases for this one. Smoke, and Mirrors using Divide, and conquer, to further the Order Out Of Chaos. Watch Your backs, and think through all interactions; use Your Heart, and Intuition. Ferment Your own reality, and truth.

As George Orwell wrote, “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.”
Ponder on this final point. Think about it, and understand this is what the Elite are doing to us all.


Wake Up, Stand Up,

Totally agree about those fish heads trying to make everyone dependent on banks and debt-it cards.

ALL the airlines now do this onboard a flight and I came to the same conclusion-

I will be bank free for as long as I can

Stay Sanchoy!!!

This will make it so much easier for criminals.

Then they'll use that as excuse to encorach further, to take more rights.

Luckily, the American people are getting angrier and better armed each day.

They are arming themselves with information too

Thank You

I think having the choice to be bank free is what matters; the Elite are currently moving to restrict that very ability.

I really hope the American public do wake up. I can only hope they see the light of day, and start thinking outside the box. There are many People spinning the essence of truth for set agendas; should the masses wake to the truth, and manipulations of it, then We will have a chance

That really makes me angry. I worked for that money, it's mine. It should be my choice when to put it into the bank - if ever...

Especially since the banks have limits on how much of YOUR money you can take out with a debit card now days.
Nope, I don't want my money put into the bank for me...GRRRRR!

Great post, star and flag!

Thanks for the post. Well, combining all from the story above does weave a story of deception, and ratcheting up of control.
