Political Action Committee (PAC)
A popular term for a political committee organized for the purpose of raising and spending money to elect and defeat candidates. Most PACs represent business, labor or ideological interests.

National Special Interest Groups

What do Interest Groups Do?

Direct Lobbying
Lobbying is the process of persuading public officials to take actions favorable to a given organized group.

Indirect Lobbying
Electioneering is the process of helping a public official get re-elected.

Propagandizing is the effort by an interest group to persuade the general public that the interest group is protecting the general interest in its policy agenda.

We all know that PAC’s and Lobbyists hold influence over our elected officials and non-elected bureaucrats.
If national business’ hold influence how much more influence does an international or multinational corporation hold?
Wall Street received a bailout, but how much influence does the IMF and the World Bank hold over not just the U.S. Bureaucracies and Politicians but all world leaders?
How much influence does the Bilderberg Group hold over world leaders?

In the early/mid 20th century it was Wall Street. Wonder how, and if that's shifted today?

lobbyists are the "pimps" of the system.
they protect the special interest groups fleecing america and elsewhere.
the status quo of our 17,000 page tax code is their battle cry.

they beleive in free trade, but not for pharmaceuticals, so american healthcare is very expensive.

over the lobbyists are the pacs who keep the congress in line by doing massive cash attacks during elections, if they(the elected hos) deviate from the interests of caps.

an unholy union of corporate interest and right wing churches to protect the military industrial complex.
20 years after the end of the cold war, guantanamo in cuba is still costing the taxpayers hundreds of million $ a year.
the world is full of these bases facing an imaginary ennemy.

the system is roten and unsustainable, too many parasites feeding off the treasury.

When Obama was talking about the new gun control law he will put the weight of his office behind he said that he would be talking to the stakeholders. This translates to he will listen to his controllers and handlers from the global mega-corps which are mostly owned and controlled by European banking cartels.

This is what the Governments don't want anyone to know.
Suspecians are fine as long as there is no proof that cannot be denied. No proof, no crime, no guilty party to blame.

And no target for the pissed off masses.

And if the ICBs have that much influence over the federal government, then have a far greater influence over state and local governments who are typically willing to bend over backwards for the ICBs.

Essentially we're bought and paid for by the banks that issue our currency, and expect interest on it.

This is small scale and simplified, but try to get the analogy here:

So we're issued a currency, and they have to begin by putting X amount of dollars into the "closed system."
Let's call it 10 dollars.
For doing this for us, they want 12 dollars back. If there is only 10 dollars period, how can they ever get 12 back? Only 10 exists?

Apply this to every loan ever made since 1913 and here we are.
