• And to rub the CFR’s influence in your face, Hillary Clinton gave a speech yesterday at the new CFR headquarters in Washington, DC.

    She opened with:
    “Thank you very much, Richard, and I am delighted to be here in these new headquarters. I have been often to, I guess, the mother ship in New York City, but it’s good to have an outpost of the Council right here down the street from the State Department. We get a lot of advice from the Council, so this will mean I won’t have as far to go to be told what we should be doing and how we should think about the future.”

    You can find the transcript to this speech on the State Department’s own website:

    The CFR has no party allegiance because it manipulates both parties. Its only focus is globalization, and it cares very little about our national sovereignty, the will of The People, or preserving our (once) representative form of government.

    So, to make this relevant to the discussion – the CFR’s handle on both parties has allowed it to shift our expectations over time to the point where trillion dollar deficits aren’t quite as shocking as they should be.

  • If your savings/401k is denominated in dollars, you better convert it while the dollar is still worth something. It's value is already so fragile that any number of events will pull the rug from under it -- like China dumping its trillions in dollar reserves onto the world market. China has been hiding our true currency inflation by sitting on the dollars we export.

    Consider putting a liquid portion of your savings into commodities (gold, silver, bullets) or invest in the means for food & energy production to lower your cost of living. I’m not trying to incite fear – I’m just pointing out a big chunk of reality you may have overlooked. There’s no shame in being more self-sufficient.

    Use this calculator to figure out how much purchasing power you’ve already lost at the hands of the government & Federal Reserve:

    You’ll find that $100 in 2000 had the same purchasing power as $125 today. It would cost you over $260 (2009 dollars) to buy $100 in goods in 1980. And this is using government-issued inflation numbers, so you know it’s understated. This is a hidden tax on your earnings! If you think we’re too dependent on the government now, just wait until our retirement accounts are worthless.

    What does it mean that we’re propping up international banking organizations (IMF, World Bank) while we destroy our own currency by design? I could pose the same question regarding our sovereignty in light of the push for a North American Union. Why have the majority of the cabinet members of the last several administrations been members of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) -- an openly globalist “think tank” with little regard for our sovereignty?

    Do your own research:

  • Yeah, before there was no way we could afford the war on terror.

    Now, it seems we can spend 7 times that amount on giveaways and growing and it is no problem. Heck, those citizens are still spending so they must have some money that can still be taxed out of them. Or fee, or contribution, or whatever we can get away calling it.

  • Good analogy.
