KNOW THE SCORE - Government 75 - People 25
by Walter Burien
It is all about controlling people and the take-over of it all by
The people are there generating the productivity
wealth and then government through ever increasing systematic
investment ownership takes that productivity for conversion into liquid
hard asset ownership and cash drained from the people's accounts into
government's and their cooperative players accounts through taxation
and market manipulations.
Government now owns the market place or in so many words, they own the cookie jar so they determine the price of a cookie, how many are sold, and how many are kept or discarded.
Government out of "opportunity" (which is made up of select inside players and their cooperatives) now owns your productivity, the end result hard assets derived therefrom ends up under their control and ownership, and here is how it was done!
For this example I will just cover the time period of 2000 through 2009 for a showing of specifics even though the "procedure" in general has been in operation and expanding since 1945. A few notes on 1945 through 2000 are as follows with the specifics of 2000-2009 at the end.
In general, lets go back to what Al Capone use to say in the 30's: "What the hell are we fighting government for, let's become government and we will then take whatever we want." Well, they did and the rest is history.
Taxation was never needed AT ALL. The true goal of an ethical and moral people in assignment of a government structure is to established centralized "protection" of the wealth of the country and to assure that wealth and prosperity be maintained for the benefit by its people.
When this end intent goes array and off track, the end result is the centralized looting and extortion of the wealth of a country and extortion of that wealth from its people.
You yourself can answer the question of what course has been taken over the last 100 years here by the end result seen today.
If the people's wealth and productivity maintained by them was the goal, taxation would never have been implemented. Government could have operated from, and exclusively by sharing in the productivity results of its people by investment return. Government now "owns it all" by investment but the direct tie to the people for direct benefit is not there.
The intent from the get go in the 40's due to the money; wealth; control value involved brought forth a monopoly of private "associations" to control the show, direct the end results, and to amass the wealth in right field as the people were herded into left field. The skids were grease, the pockets were filled, and the take-over of it all commenced. Government was turned into an administrative clearing house for revenue collection and for covert profit.
A few examples of these private associations with nice little government sounding acronyms are:
GFOA (Government Financial Officers Association - who created the CAFR accounting structure in 1946);
GASB (Government Accounting Standards Board - who was assigned to determine accounting guidelines for the CAFR accounting structure);
Council of Governors; Mayors; City Managers (coordinates the operational application of the CAFR accounting profit structures with local governments);
The Federal Reserve - set up to maintain the value of that barter currency the dollar by circulation controls where by 100% of those dollars were funneled back into government, exponentially then allowing government to take it all over piece by piece by investment and furthering oppressive restrictions on the population to enhance the productivity take;
Even the Republican and Democratic Parties are two "private" associations - designed to be on the surface as two opposing groups but in reality are one symbiotic group to "make sure" that only the select inside player's candidates are chosen, promoted, and subsequently placed. There is no inherent reality on the people's part here to elect a true People's candidate on positions that really matter.
And as all can and have seen, in end results, associations designed to have open access to the public troth and every local and federal government til and done so at the taxpayer's expense.
And I quote: "Treason doth never prosper; what's the reason? For if it prosper, none dare call it treason." Sir John Harrington, 1561-1612
Arrogance, ego, and wealth accumulation by the inside players was the primary driving force behind the process. And as in any good ponzi or extortion scheme of substance the people were told: "If you participate, the end result will be for your own good" and "everyone else is do it so you must also".
It was said that in 1900 government accounted for 4.6 % of the GDP and now it is 42%.
In reality the now figure is more like 64% to 70% due to the FACT that local and federal government now own the majority of the domestic and international corporations by investment.
So if you account for government's direct operations, taxation, welfare distributions, investment return, total domestic sales based on percentage ownership of stock and loans to all primary corporations by and through US local and federal government held internationally, when the final tally is conducted, government would account for closer to if not over the 70% mark of the GDP, and by the look of things in overall perspective, that gives a score of: government (and their inside players) 75 and the people 25 in consequential final light.
I will note that the dollar is just a piece of paper used as a bartering tool. If sea shells were selected as the bartering tool, then you would be buying your new car or house with sea shells. Power and control is gauged in end result by who owns and walks with all of the sea shells. This arena is ruthless and unforgiving.
With this being done they could control how many sea shells were out
there and thus maintain the value of those sea shells, while at the
same time using those ever expanding hoard of sea shells amassing that
were ending right back into their vaults to use a percentage of them to
systematically buy up and take over all tangible productivity
generating domestic and international corporations, rental properties,
commerce centers, etc. one percentage at a time over the decades.
The process implemented back in the 40's by government through the use of the federal reserve and the dollar was brilliant. Here they could systematically expand the dollars in circulation where every dollar came back to them one piece at a time ending up equaling 100% circulated in a very short period of time.
As they did so the wealth bases of the inside cooperative players grew and grew to where no one would dare rock the boat, or expose the game of which was so simple that the "Silence is Golden" rule was strictly enforced to maintain the game over the last 65 years.
END RESULT? 2000 - 2009:
In the 80's upper level governments started off-shoring their primary managed investment operations. CALPERS International is an example of one. [ I note that CALPERS International is just the transfer agent and the actual management funds and fund managers assigned to hold and invest the funds for CALPERS International are spreed out across the globe.] So to get a true picture of what is out there and how those funds are being used internationally, an audit of those international funds and fund managers would be required to see the actual value and net result of CALPERS International assignment holdings.
It is my guesstimate that between the plethora of massive US Government off-shore accounts, the total balances would be some where around 35 trillion dollars or greater. Transparency to the public is nonexistent here.
In the 80's interest rates were spiked up to 21%, who was the primary beneficiary? Government investments as the profit made therefrom was sucked out of the economy and peoples pockets. It also gave the opportunity for government through the back door to come in and refinance their own debt ow which was constantly promoted to the people, refinanced using government's own investment capital thus locking in a secure rate of investment return for them guaranteed by the taxing of the people.
If a complete audit of how much government debt is funded by government investments was conducted, snip! - there goes the illusion and most of that implied debt.
Towards the end of the 80's one play that took place was using those off-shore funds through derivative transactions to create a collapse of the Mexican peso. It was done and then in walks about 400 billion dollars into Mexico buying up everything for 10 cents on the dollar. After this was done, with the bounce in the peso and taking advantage of cheap labor, that original 400 billion dollars invested blossomed in five to six years into well over three trillion dollars in value. I think they call that the "first taste of blood."
Then in the 90's, the soviet block of countries were lured in with the bait of US Government investment funds pouring into those countries. When the details were worked out, then Gorbachev goes democratic, the soviet union breaks up, and the money comes flooding in primarily from the off-shore but also from the domestic US Government managed investments.....
Then come 1999 - 2000, the biggest cherry to pick: China. Again after the details were worked out, in steps about two trillion in US Government investment capital where real cheap labor was available, the import of Chinese goods were allowed to flood int the US and elsewhere, guaranteeing a massive profit on those US investments held in China.
The people hear about that 1.5 trillion dollars the Chinese are holding due to their trade surplus with the US, but not a peep as to the current 8 to 10 trillion dollars in value by market capitalization held by the US Government investment accounts (primarily off-shore accounts with a smaller percentage held by domestic US accounts)
Ah, 2001, the turning point for us all. As the saying goes: "Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely"
At the beginning of 2001, I noticed that the published "short" derivative holdings for institutional investments (primarily government investment funds) over physicals held was close to it's normal high end. This told me something was up!
In mid 2001, the short derivative holdings had breached the high side (32%) and was moving past 45%. Now I am watching real close for, Whats up?
Come October of 2001, a whopping 65% mark is hit. (short derivative holding make very big returns against losses on physical holdings in the event of a market crash.)
2001, September 11th - otherwise most commonly know now as 911 - the international markets collapse in a matter of days, the steps are taken to lock down the entire population of the US under stringent observation and control, the hit goes forward that was in the planning for ten years to take over two countries in the middle east by force, and the beat goes on, and it was probably only a coincidence that the number one profiteer from 911 were the few trillion dollars picked up on government's short derivative play held before the fact.
2002 - 2009, let's turn up the steam, full speed ahead! The DOW makes it up to almost 15,000 primary driven by government funds maintaining or inflating their book value of investments held. The derivative market is expanded internationally from eighty trillion dollars value in 2000 to six-hundred trillion come 2008. Interest rates are driven down through the floor and maintained there by government and the inflated housing boom begins. Now this was a good thing on government's part per consequential effect of more homes for everyone!
Government investments thrive and grow with war, increased banking activity, pharmaceutical drugs being pored out to the population paid for at taxpayer expense, increased taxes being collected, and any concern about a revolt from the people was squelched with the introduction of the patriot act and homeland security.. Swiss clock I must admit..
2008, now here it takes a real dark turn for the people. Stock market hit almost 15,000, crude oil prices top out at $157 per barrel, and the musical chairs rollover was coming to an end in the housing market... 48 players and 18 chairs left when the music stopped playing not to be turned on again.
Here is the dastardly deed part. Government now having massive multi-trillion dollar investment accounts off-shore and having been seasoned now for over thirty years in the market manipulation game for profit, comes in and heavily shorts with derivatives the international stock markets, crude oil between $140 and $150 (tens of thousands of commodity futures contracts), the precious metals, they go long the dollar (dollar index at 71 at the time), and long US30 Treasury Bonds and other interest rate vehicles and then start the drive in each.
Now on the local Government managed accounts with holdings both on the domestic and international front, they start cashing in their physical holdings (dumping) perpetuating a collapse of the stock markets worldwide, a collapse in crude oil prices down to $32 per barrel, forcing new contract lows in precious metals, sending US30 Treasury Bonds from 112 to their life of contract highs of 141. In the process, the people and smaller government investment accounts are decimated and ten to fifteen trillion dollars is sucked out of the economy and massive wealth is pulled off into those off-shore management funds. Taken from one hand (local domestic operations) and transferred into the other hand (off-shore operations)
They guaranteed a massive profit on their short derivative plays with the dumping of large quantities of the local governments physical holdings.
A complete backdated three year audit of these massive off-shore government operations is urgently needed to determine the "net" results of the recent market manipulations. With derivatives every dollar lost by one party is transferred into the account balance of another party, and here we are talking trillions of dollars transferred..
I cringe every time I hear someone on the nightly news saying: "when is the stock market going to go up so someone can make some money."
With derivatives you make more money and make it quicker when prices collapse. Typically speaking, it may take a price a year to go up and then it will collapse in a matter of days. Professional derivative traders make 85% of their big money going "short" first at high prices and then buying back at a fractional price after the collapse and thus locking in the equity on the trade.
Come the end of 2008, they applied this market manipulation between off-shore derivatives and domestic physicals so hot and heavy and so fast that it destabilized the world markets. You can only steal so much from the outside players. If one takes a loss of one-hundred and forty million dollars and they only have one-hundred million dollars, they are now in default for forty-million dollars. So many defaults were created to the tune of hundreds of billions of dollars, the "sky is falling" syndrome started playing itself out on the streets of the globe.
So what do the inside players do? Now here is the definition of arrogance from the inside players: They use a trillion dollars of taxpayer revenue to shore-up their own playing field which they just destabilized out of decisive greed applied from one hand into the other, then to protect their own investments held in the stripped hand of which the majority of the public did not even know existed and to what degree was there in the first place!
The two Federal Enterprise Mortgage Corporations that were just
shored-up, the primary investors in those mortgages was local and
federal governments. Even China had 350 billion dollars invested in the
mix. Then another trillion dollars is taken in taxpayer funds as an
"economic stimulus package" tacked on to the backs of the taxpayer to
enhance from this point forward what government already owns by
I will say it again: "Treason doth never prosper; what's the reason? For if it prosper, none dare call it treason." Sir John Harrington, 1561-1612
I can not emphasize how important the process I brought forward five months ago at http://TaxRetirement.com is. In effect it accomplishes a complete independent audit of a local venue's domestic and international investment holdings; a complete statistical review of the growth of that venue's operations for recommended consolidation and or downsizing; of which the audit and statistical review will be utilized to create a prospectus for that local venue whereby to pay all expenses of that local government venue from a TRF (Tax Retirement Fund) having the purpose of phasing out all taxation in that venue.
Here the people become and are the direct beneficiary of what government has already and will amass, taxation becomes a word of the past, and under this form of government operations the people and economy prospers in a stable environment as well as in open transparency accomplished as to who, where, and what that wealth is being used for. (The people will have a real strong interest to look at and monitor that activity now)
Additionally, government's motive and focus turns towards exclusively the people prospering, because the better the people are doing, the better the cash flow is for government.
We left the vault door open to long where it benefited the behind closed door deals of others on the inside track.
It is time to take responsibility and accountability for the wealth this country generates and possesses. Massive wealth of no equal from around the globe. (That is until China catches up with us if we let them)
TRF Fund management in every City, County, and State, one venue at a time! Taxation a thing of the past, and a free society of mutual benefit from the individual's productivity generated and kept by the individual for their own use therefrom.
To do this will be no easy job. A multi-trillion dollar a year syndicate has arose around us all with other intent in mind.
Can it be done all at once? No. Can it be done one venue at a time where all other venues fall in line by example set? Yes, if the people have the intelligence, fortitude, guts, and business fight to make it happen. The options in not doing so are not pleasant ones..
Success is not determined by good wishes and best intentions. Success is determined by application and the fortitude to carry it through to the end without deviation against all opposition to get the job done..
So where are the people that wish to make this happen and that have the resources and will to push it through to the end. Who will be the first venue that sets the example for the rest to follow? Will it be a town or county in Vermont, Florida, California, or Tennessee?
Time and the effective results of capable individuals will tell..
