The Progressive Era Revisited

with one comment


It is interesting that the history books either misrepresent the period between 1890-1940 in terms of its socio-economic context or ignore it completely.

Most of our problems on the national scene can be traced to the misdeeds during this period. We can’t hit our opponent if we don’t understand who or what our opponent is.

I’ve written extensively about many of the subtopics connected to this period such as The Federal Reserve’s connection to the The Great Depression, and outlined why it doesn’t matter which party is technically in power. Yes, the Federal Reserve even had a hand in the World Wars and the rise of dictators like Hitler and Stalin. While we are at it, let’s not forget the Rothschild’s connection to all this too.

One of the main opponents to the agenda of John Rockefeller and J.P. Morgan was William Jennings Bryan.  In our modern times, we think of Bryan as only being some sort of right-wing religious zealot (which couldn’t be further from the truth).

Keep in mind that many of the big city newspapers were owned by the same elite cartel that were advocating for an increased role for the Federal government in the daily affairs of the average American. Of course, they were going to commit libel against the most public opponent of the Progressive agenda. It wasn’t the residents of the big cities that Jennings was at odds with, but certain individuals and various special interest groups who just happened to choose the big cities as gathering places.

“I shall not slander the inhabitants of the fair state of Massachusetts nor the inhabitants of the state of New York by saying that, when they are confronted with the proposition, they will declare that this nation is not able to attend to its own business. It is the issue of 1776 over again. Our ancestors, when but three million in number, had the courage to declare their political independence of every other nation; shall we, their descendants, when we have grown to seventy millions, declare that we are less independent than our forefathers?”                                                                                                                             as quoted from the Democratic Convention in Harper’s Weekly, 18 July, 1896

It should be obvious the Rockefeller-Morgan connections throughout this whole Progressive Movement. What had happened was business had become increasingly competitive in the late 19th-early 20th century. Morgan and Rockefeller beginning with railroads and oil attempted to establish cartels. But the free-market spirit and public distrust of monopolies in addition to central banking fouled up these attempts. So they managed to hoodwink the masses using the same language of opposition to monopoly as a way to put over monopoly.

Even the Pure Food and Drug Act signed into law by Theodore Roosevelt (a Morgan crony) was done to put mom and pop food operations out of business and enable the further cartelization of the food industry. Do I really need to elaborate on the consequences of this?

The 1896 presidential election while rarely mentioned today was perhaps in its historical perspective the most important election in U.S. history.

One of Morgan’s protégés was Henry Cabot Lodge.  Lodge basically acted as a middle man for Morgan as backstage negotiations were being conducted with the Rockefeller political machine operating out of Ohio. The main contact for the Rockefeller camp was William McKinley’s campaign manager Mark Hanna.

The basic agreement was that Morgan would throw his support to William McKinley in exchange for certain concessions on establishing a central banking structure in the future.

This pooling of votes would neutralize the support that Bryan had amongst certain elements in the Democratic Party who were opposed to central banking, Silver Republicans and various populist elements in the South and Rocky Mountain states.

The Rockfeller and Morgan camps would often be at odds not so much on the overall goal of implementing statism on the free market, but mostly such differences were simply disputes in the overall jockeying of power; basically a clash of egos and wills.  But certainly when it came to the establishment of a central bank, they were literally walking arm in arm.

Shortly after the 1896 election, the Indianapolis Monetary Commission convened for the purpose of discussing and issuing a report on “currency reform”.

This meeting was publicized as business people getting together for a convention. But it was in fact individuals from the Morgan and Rockefeller camps meeting for the purpose of laying the groundwork for a central bank. They met in Indianapolis so as to create the impression that surely nothing bad would ever come out of America’s Heartland as opposed to the image that the public had of evil bankers meeting in New York City or Washington, D.C.

The go-to-man in Congress for both Morgan and Rockefeller was senator Nelson Aldrich.  While Aldrich may have been the congressional connection, the process that it took to implement both the Federal Reserve Act and the 16th Amendment was to say the least complex.

Which brings us to our current times. Needless to say, while the specific individuals have since long passed away (and are in hell), their work continues today through the system they left behind and gets ever larger.

So do you know who your enemy is?

Calling Edison and Tesla

with one comment

So we now know the one constant in life is change. Not the “change” coming from the capitols of the world or from memos that are passed down or from experts who try to plan the global economy by meeting around a conference table in secret. I’m talking about true change. I’m talking about true genuine change for those who are not experts or related to royalty by blood or marriage.

Who are the future entrepreneurs?

Who are the future inventors?

Who is willing to take risk?

People and Americans in particular have loss their boldness. They are not willing to stick their necks out because it may result in discomfort and they are not willing to speak out for the oppressed, the poor, and the other outcasts in society because they could be made to suffer the consequences. Well folks, that is just life. There have always been evil people in this world. Who is going to stop them? You? Food, water and shelter are always going to be issues. Don’t sell your heart, mind and soul for mere promises of comforts or luxuries.

Everyone wants to be on top. We have practically been conditioned since birth to be on top whether it is business, sports, politics, etc… We are so focused on results that no one is willing to go through the process. We also have to realize as many of us are nowadays that doing things the way your parents or grandparents may or may not work as well. How many people have or are pursuing a college degree, yet can’t even find a job stocking groceries at night? Thank you very much Washington, D.C.

Stop looking to the experts for answers. They have none. What are you doing to do about it?

The U.S. Divorce from D.C.

with 5 comments

“Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and gave him triumphal processions . . . .  Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the ‘new, wonderful good society’ which shall now be Rome’s, interpreted to mean ‘more money, more ease, more security, more living fatly at the expense of the industrious.’ Julius was always an ambitious villain, but he is only one man.” Marcus Tullius Cicero
The political entity known as the United States of America is due for a breakup. Why? Because that is what history tells us. Basically this breakup is going to be akin to a divorce from Washington, D.C. and the stranglehold that it has on current domestic and foreign affairs. It is in its early stages in Europe and the Middle East.
To cite one historical example among many, as Roman agricultural output slowly declined and population increased, this led to food shortages. The Romans “solved” this problem by conquering their neighbours taking in loot in the form of metals, grain, slaves, etc… All the while, the elites kept the masses distracted and dumbed down with “entertainment”, fear mongering about invasions from the North and free bread.
However, as the Empire grew, the cost of maintaining administration, communications, garrisons, etc. grew with it. Eventually, this cost grew so great that any new challenges such as invasions and crop failures could not be solved by the acquisition of more territory. Intense, authoritarian efforts to maintain cohesion by Domitian, Hadrian and Diocletian in particular only led to an ever greater strain on the population. The empire was split into two halves, of which the western soon fragmented into smaller units. The eastern half, being wealthier, was able to survive longer, and did not collapse but instead succumbed slowly and piecemeal, because unlike the western empire it had powerful neighbors able to take advantage of its weakness.
In theory, human societies exist to solve problems. As these societies solved problems – food production, security, public works – they became increasingly complex. Complexity however carries with it overhead costs, e.g. administration, maintaining an army, tax collection, infrastructure maintenance, etc. As the society confronts new problems additional complexity is required to solve them. Eventually a point is reached where the overhead costs that are generated result in diminishing returns in terms of effectiveness. The society wastefully expends its resources trying to maintain its bloated condition until it finally collapses into smaller, simpler, more efficient units.
This has been the cycle going back thousands upon thousands of years. Indeed an eventual breakup of the political entity known as the United States is inevitable.  Cities that defined the nation’s industrial age like Cleveland, Detroit and Pittsburgh may need to redefine themselves. Alaska may form a union with Yukon or something along those lines.  Hawaii was once its own kingdom until the U.S. government overthrew it and installed a puppet government.  Canada is due for a similar breakup.  I could see a mass migration northwards or eastwards from California in a similar yet reversal of the Okie trend in the 1930′s.  Texas should be its own republic again.
One thing is for sure: We are living in interesting times.

The Birth of Jesus Christ

with one comment

Much of what people think they know about Jesus in fact doesn’t come from the Bible, but cultural reinventions designed to make Jesus more palatable to the elites and to the masses that accept false gospel as the truth. The Bible makes no mention of how tall he was, it never mentions Jesus being born on December 25, nor does it ever claim he was a candidate for political office. He was too radical for his day (thus ensuring he would be hanged) and he wouldn’t be treated any better today.  Yes, there is mention of an inn, but no innkeeper. I don’t think Norman Bates was alive then 🙂

Then there is the myth of Eve being alone. “When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, [WHO WAS WITH HER], and he ate it. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves.” Genesis 3:6-7

Also, Easter has to do with Tammuz, not Jesus. ‎”Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the Lord’s house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz. Then said he unto to me, ‘Hast thou seen this, O son of man? turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations than these.” Ezekiel 8:14-15

But this is another topic for another day.  People just infer things when the text doesn’t make any mention of it.  It is a form of inertia.

Now about the birth of Jesus Christ. In the ancient world, a day was when the sun was up and night was when the sun was down. Roughly this would be 6 a.m-6 p.m. for day and 6 p.m.-6a.m. for night.  Our modern methods of timekeeping (such as daylight savings time) obscure this ancient way of tracking time.

A confirmation of this time is in the book of Revelation. Historian Ernest L. Martin consulted NASA lunar-phase tables and found the image of the heavens in Revelation 12 showed where the sun and the moon were, relative to Virgo, at the time Jesus was born, pin-pointing sunset of SEPTEMBER 11th of 3 BC. This would have occurred during the Rosh Hashanah. It is interesting that the Magi and Herod believed what had happened, but the Sadduccees who were supposed to be the most learned about Jewish customs and law were oblivious to this.  The Magi remembered the prophet Daniel and the role he had in the court of Nebuchadnezzar.
It seems the moon moves so quickly it is “beneath the feet” of Virgo (hence the virgin birth) only a few hours every month. Moreover, the moon comes within two lunar diameters of Virgo’s feet at the time of a new moon but once in 30 years.  Josephus tells us that Herod died after a lunar eclipse. Most previous attempts at determining the birth time were based upon astrology and dating the Star of Bethlehem. Most scholars using Emil Schurer’s work as their reference assumed Herod died in late March/early April of 4 BCE. No one considered 3 BCE as a possible year of Jesus’s birth because that year had erroneously been assumed to follow Herod’s death. However, Dr. Martin has proven that Herod did not die in 4 BC, but after an eclipse occurred on January 10, 1 BCE. Scholars are now generally accepting the new chronology for Herod, and this in turn has allowed the confirmation of the New Testament date for the birth of Jesus.  Unfortunately, many churches continue to promote the critics’ errors and paganized traditions about the Nativity.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   
We can tell from Luke’s Gospel that Jesus had been born in early evening, for Luke says the shepherds were keeping watch by night, but still had time to go into town and tell the people what they had seen earlier that evening. People rose early with the sun in those days, and would have been asleep by 9 or 10 pm. Therefore, the birth had taken place no later than 8 pm, and probably before 7 pm. Yet Luke says it happened at night, which means after sunset–surely after 6 pm in September. Hence, it follows that Jesus was born within a few minutes of 6:30-7:30 pm on the evening of September 11th, 3 BC.

It was known widely around the world that God would send a redeemer to rescue mankind and that this was foretold “in the heavens”, and it was widely expected.  However, this redeemer wasn’t the warrior-king that most people expected.  “It was the early evening of June 17, 2 B.C.E. All the cities around Babylon in Mesopotamia were aglow with talk about a spectacular astronomical event being witnessed in the western sky. What had been monitored for several weeks was the planet Venus moving eastward among the stars on what appeared to be a collision course with the planet Jupiter. Now the expected event had happened right in front of their eyes.”  The Magi headed west, met Herod in December to tell them they had arrived with gifts for this king. Read Matthew 2.   

The other account of the birth of Jesus in Luke 2 states 1 And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed. 2 (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) 3 And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.

In other words, Rome had just declared a NEW WORLD ORDER!  This particular census wasn’t being done for taxation purposes. It was being done in honor of Augustus Caesar’s 25th year as Roman Emperor. The various governors were competing for the title of “Pater Patriae” (Father of the Country). This title was a designation of loyalty to the emperor.

So do you understand the signifiance of September 11 now? Don’t you think Satan already knew this? Satan was and is the prince of the Earth. All earthly governments pledge their loyalty to Satan. There can be various disagreements about exactly what day Jesus was born. But one thing is for certain: He was not born on December 25.

Happy Birthday Alvin York

leave a comment »

I took a three hour round trip (over Memorial Day weekend) to Pall Mall (pronounced /ˈpæl ˈmæl/ pal mal by residents) in order to a pay visit to the Sgt. York Historic Park. It was long overdue.

Most people are already generally familiar with York’s exploits during World War I in large part due to the movie plus some general readings here and there. To get more in-depth about his life, I suggest checking out “Sgt York: His Life, Legend & Legacy“.

Much of his later life was spent seeking to improve the welfare of his fellow beings through improved education, economic opportunities and sharing the gospel of Christ. He stated once “When I die, I had rather it be said about me that I gave my life toward aiding my fellow man than for to be said that I became a millionaire, through capitalizing on my fame as a fighter. I do not care to be remembered as a warrior, but one who helped others to Christ”.
