One 77-year-old’s search for the truth: 9/11, election fraud, illegal wars, Wall Street criminality, a stolen nuke, the neocon wars, control of the U.S. government by global corporations, the unjustified assault on Social Security, media complicity, and the "Great Recession" about to become the second Great Depression. "The most important truths are hidden from us by the powerful few who strive to steal the American dream by keeping We the People in the dark."

What is happening in Ukraine is a preview of what will soon be happening in the U.S. And unfortunately most of the American sheeple will not understand this any better than the Ukrainian students who took the bait of American operative Victoria Nuland, who spent 5 billion dollars in Ukraine promising the big lie that a better life could be had if only they were to ally themselves to the west. Fast forward to June 1: “The TASS news agency reported that Ukraine has stopped payments to pensioners, World War II veterans, people with disabilities, and victims of Chernobyl. According to the report, Kiev has also “eliminated transport, healthcare, utilities and financial benefits for former prisoners of Nazi concentration camps and recipients of some Soviet-era orders and titles. Compensations to families with children living in the areas contaminated by radiation from the Chernobyl accident will be no longer paid either.” Paul Craig Roberts continues: “How do the deceived Maiden student protesters feel now that they are culpable in the destruction of their grandparents’ support systems? Do these gullible fools still believe in the Washington-orchestrated Maiden Revolution? The crimes in which these stupid students are complicit are horrific.” Wake up America, you are next!
Over the last 15 months Ukrainians have paid for Washington’s
overthrow of their elected government in deaths, dismemberment of their
country, and broken economic and political relationships with Russia
that cost Ukraine its subsidized energy. Now Ukrainians are losing
their pensions and traditional support payments. The Ukrainian
population is headed for the graveyard.
On June 1 the TASS news agency reported that Ukraine has stopped
payments to pensioners, World War II veterans, people with disabilities,
and victims of Chernobyl. According to the report, Kiev has also
“eliminated transport, healthcare, utilities and financial benefits for
former prisoners of Nazi concentration camps and recipients of some
Soviet-era orders and titles. Compensations to families with children
living in the areas contaminated by radiation from the Chernobyl
accident will be no longer paid either. Ukraine’s parliamentary
opposition believes that the Prosecutor General’s Office should launch
an investigation against Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk who actively
promoted the law on the abolition of privileges.”
Notice that this is a yank of the blanket from under the elderly in
Ukraine. “Useless eaters,” they are assigned to the trash can. How do
the deceived Maiden student protesters feel now that they are culpable
in the destruction of their grandparents’ support systems? Do these
gullible fools still believe in the Washington-orchestrated Maiden
Revolution? The crimes in which these stupid students are complicit are
Yatsenyuk, or Yat as Victoria Nuland calls him, is the Washington
stooge that the US State Department selected to run the puppet
government established by Washington. Yat sounds like a right-wing
Republican when he refers to pensions, compensations, and social
services as “privileges.” This is the Republican view of Social
Security and Medicare, programs paid for by the payroll tax over the
working lives of Americans. The Republicans stole the payroll revenues
and spent them on their wars that enrich Wall Street and the
military/security complex, and now blame “welfare handouts” for
America’s fiscal plight.
Is Monsanto’s right to turn Ukraine into GMO food production a
privilege? ls VP Biden’s son’s right to destroy Ukraine’s surface and
underground water in fracking operations a privilege? Are the external
costs imposed on Ukrainians by these looting activities a privilege? Of
course not! These are not privileges. This is the operation of free
market economics creating the greatest good for the greatest number. (As
many Americans will not realize that I am engaging in satire, I would
like to affirm that I am.)
The news report does not say whether the abolished “privileges” are
one part of a reform that will replace the terminated “privileges” with a
new social support system. Possibly this is the case, but as the
termination of pensions and payments was triggered by the coming into
effect of Yat’s law to “stabilize the financial condition of Ukraine,”
the purpose of the termination of Ukraine’s social welfare system might
be to free up money to hand over to the IMF and Western banks. In
Ukraine, as in Greece, the gullible and naive population that saw
salvation in unity with the West will be driven into the ground.
Russia, of course, will be blamed. I can already write the New York
Times and Washington Post editorials and the words that will come from
Obama, CNN, and Fox “News.” In fact, so can my intelligent readers.
The same looting is underway in Great Britain, Italy, Spain,
Portugal, and the United States. In Great Britain everything achieved
by the Labour Party over many decades has been taken away, and not only
by the Conservatives but by Labour leader Tony Blair himself.
Tony Blair sold out his constituents for money and is now among the
One Percent. Bill Clinton did the same thing. Bill and Hillary were
able to spend $3 million on their daughter’s wedding, almost a world
record, dwarfing many Hollywood weddings. Obama is not even out of
office and is already rich. America’s faithful vassals–Merkel,
Hollande, and Cameron–can look forward to equal riches.
Karl Marx was correct when he said that money corrupts all. Everything becomes a commodity that is bought and sold for money.
When money becomes the measure of a person, people have become corrupted. And that is the plight of the Western world.
Where in the West is your wealth, small or large, safe? Nowhere.
Washington has destroyed financial privacy everywhere in the West.
Washington even forced Switzerland to violate its own laws in order to
comply with Washington’s insistence on the absence of any financial
For decades Americans with foreign bank accounts have been required
to report them on their income tax returns. Now if an American owns a
gold coin in a vault overseas, this must be reported to Washington.
Once Washington knows the location of your assets, the assets can be
confiscated at will. Washington only has to make some declaration or
accusation or the other, and your wealth is gone.
As Washington has run the printing presses hard in order to serve a
handful of banks that control the US Treasury and the Federal Reserve,
unless China and Russia acquiesce to becoming Washington’s vassals, at
some point the dollar’s value is going to slide downward. When that
happens, the Federal Reserve cannot continue to create new money to meet
Where will the money come from? It will come from Americans’ pensions.
Pensions accumulate tax free, and this accumulation will be
confiscated in whole or part to make up for the failure to tax, another
That confiscation works that year. But what happens the next year
when the dollar is reeling on foreign exchange markets from over-supply?
The answer is that another chunk of American pensions, and I am
speaking of private pensions, will be confiscated “in order to stabilize
the financial system.” Social Security will be long gone by this time.
Alicia Munnel, who was my replacement as Assistant Secretary of the
Treasury for Economic Policy in the Clinton regime, advocated many years
ago a confiscation of private pensions, including your IRAs and 401Ks,
in order to compensate the US government for their non-taxed status.
Alicia has a sinecure at an Eastern university where she continues to
advocate against your pension. The joint attack by Clinton Democrats
on private pensions and by Conservative Republicans on public pensions
means that no American can look forward to having a pension. Americans
are only one presidential election away from the loss of their pensions,
and it doesn’t matter who they vote for.
Economic security is a thing of the past. Security was a product of
the US being the only extant economy following World War II. In those
days corporations believed, as did Washington, that companies had
obligations not only to shareholders but to employees, customers, and
the communities in which they were located.
This meant prosperity for all, not merely, as is the case today, for corporate management and shareholders.
Apologists for exploitation claim that the rich are richer because
they are smarter. But the stupidity of the rich is everywhere visible.
The greedy fools have destroyed their domestic US market. Really, how
stupid can you be? How do Americans buy when they are forced by
offshoring out of well paid manufacturing and software engineering jobs
into being waitresses, bartenders, retail clerks and part-time Walmart
workers in order that corporate bottom lines improve? Who buys the
stuff that sustains the profits? Not Americans who no longer have the
incomes to do so.
The belief spread by Wall Street and “shareholder advocates” that
corporations only have responsibility to their owners and managers has
destroyed the American economy.
By locating production offshore, corporations have destroyed the incomes
that supported the American consumer market. For example, the incomes
associated with the production of Apple computers, I-Pads, and I-Phones
are in China. Apple’s American customers do not have the incomes
associated with the production of the products that Apple markets to
Americans are already dispossessed of their livelihoods and careers
and their pensions are next. Wherever we look, the fate of populations
under Western influence are the same. The Ukrainians are exploited, the
Greeks, the British, the Americans.
Wherever the West has an imprint, the populations are exploited.
Exploitation of the many for the few is the Hallmark of the West, a
decrepit, corrupt, and collapsing entity.
