Secrecy is Transparency, Poverty is Wealth

(11AM EST – promoted by Nightprowlkitty)


Where secrecy or mystery begins, vice or roguery is not far off.

Samuel Johnson

In America, it is no mystery our Society of Secrets began a long time ago. And our Vice and Roguery is in full bloom.


A New York Times article Saturday notes, “In 17 months in office, President Obama has already outdone every previous president in pursuing leak prosecutions.”

This is the same Obama who promised to put all Health Care Reform deal-making on CSPAN so The People could see the sausage making and hold their politicians and special interest lobbying to account. He promised transparency.

Of course, what occurred in reality was nothing of the sort. Back room deals, quid pro quo bribes and the People sold down the river of predatory profiteer-ism.

Same with Financial Reform. Same with colluding with BP to keep the apocalyptic severity of the oil gusher secret from the American people for as long as possible.

So it is no wonder Obama goes aggressively after whistle-blowers blowing the whistle on governmental corruption, criminality and cowardice. Obama has gone out of his way to protect the two-headed crime against humanity called Bush/Cheney. And he’ll do what he has to do to protect his own war-criminal ridden regime.

Politicians will say anything to get elected and do anything to get reelected. Obama is a classic example. I did have not sex with that Hope for Change. Obama has proven his loyalties lie with corporations and the current insidious form of government which is nothing more than a bribe factory and criminal conspiracy of the rich against the poor.

Recently an American Hero wearing the uniform of the United States ‘leaked’ rather embarrassing stuff to Wikileaks. And now the government has arrested the whistle-blowing hero and sent an assassination squad on the trail of the Wikileaks founder.

Prove they haven’t.

Recalling that he himself had been the intended target of a CIA hit squad in 1972, Ellsberg suggested, “As I look at Assange’s case, their worry that he will reveal current threats, I would have to say, puts his well-being, his physical life, in some danger. And I say that with anguish. … I think Assange would do well to keep his whereabouts unknown.”

But this is just par for the course for Obama, the winner of the Nobel War is Peace Prize. Secret detentions, torture, assassination squads, secret wars, wars of aggression based upon lies, illegal surveillance, PR instead of truth, secrecy instead of transparency.

Obama is not the least bit interested in Truth, but in Managing Perception.

Perception Management is achieved not by transparency but by propaganda. It’s about the release of selected and limited information with an attached spin. It’s storytelling to children at bedtime – something to make one go to sleep.

The Economy is recovering. The Oil Spill is under control. The wars are necessary and vital. You are in danger and we will make you safe no matter what it costs. Our enemies will stop at nothing to attack us. It’s better to be safe than sorry. If you have nothing to hide, then what it does it matter we open your mail, listen to your calls, pinpoint your location and peep into your bedroom?

But the truth: Obama is but the latest happy, shiny face on a darkening landscape of Security State oppression, economic warfare of the rich against the poor and environmental destruction of the planet for the sake of greed.

When the Economy collapses again, and for real this time, and because Banksters are the true Dark Overlords of this planet and must be repaid all the debt they have enslaved us with through unsustainable Bubble Economics, we’ll see the true face of Happy Face Dictatorship.

I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.

Thomas Jefferson

And when we all wake up homeless and all hell breaks loose, Obama will be the happy, shiny face of martial law. Bank on it. It’s not about Freedom, it’s about Authority.

And this is the crux of everything. Doesn’t the quote above make Jefferson a greater prophet than either Marx or Orwell. Didn’t the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 do precisely what Jefferson warned against? Didn’t we abdicate our Constitutionally mandated sovereignty of our own monetary policy?

And now the United States of America, the greatest country in the history of the world, the world’s oldest ‘democracy’ is nothing more than a ruthless financial oligarchy, backed by a Military Junta and protected in Law by the wholly-owned subsidiary of Bankster Inc. – The US Government. A Government of Lawn Jockeys for the Cabal of International Banks.

We should take our country back from the Tyranny of Private Banking Cartels. This is our only enemy and every other narrative of internal and external enemies is nothing but the smoke and mirrors of divide and conquer.

Jan. 29 (Bloomberg) — The idea of secret banking cabals that control the country and global economy are a given among conspiracy theorists who stockpile ammo, bottled water and peanut butter. After this week’s congressional hearing into the bailout of American International Group Inc., you have to wonder if those folks are crazy after all.

What does it mean something called The Federal Reserve, a private corporation, positioned above the law, above accountability, controls the very fabric of American life through secret market manipulation, currency manipulation, policy manipulation and the manipulation of public perception?

It means the United States of America is a myth. It means The People are second class citizens to corporations. It means your destiny is in the hands of others. It means you are a slave.

The Western World has been brought to its knees by Debt Slavery to Private Central Banks. The goal is a world at war which is coming, helpless populations which is here and the Totalitarianism of The Money Power.

“The powers of financial capitalism had [a] far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands, able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences.”

Carroll Quigley, Tragedy and Hope

There is a conspiracy amongst us of the rich against the poor and it is not a conspiracy theory to say so. It’s a conspiracy of secrets where truth and transparency are its enemy. It’s a conspiracy to monopolize and control governments, populations and circumstances. And in the minds of the conspirators, as in the words of Goldman Sachs’ chief, Lloyd Blankfein, they are doing God’s work.

All I can say is, God Help Us All.

    The facts are easily found; the conspiracies, and there are many, are not well hidden because the oligarchs, essentially, have direct control of all the main parts of government so have nothing much to fear.

    A Government of Lawn Jockeys….

    Yes, more or less. I’ve been kind of harping on the fact there is no “there” there as far as gov’t is concerned. The government is in and has been in decline as a coherent organization for some time–since the 80’s when it was decided that we needed to “privatize” the bureaucracy in order to “downsize” gov’t.

    But behind all this is a public that has decided to bail out on the Constitution, the Republic, rule of law, and democracy itself. People just aren’t fucking interested in all that. W can rail all we want but be assured of this: the people are not with us–they want less not more progressive politics. They want an oligarchy, they want to be told what to do an what to think as long as it’s comfortable for them and demands little of them except passivity so they can play with their little toys and their illusions. Sadly, it’s come to this.

    The big national test is the Gulf disaster. If people can begin to see that this is a result of a corporate dominance then we may see something change–but currently, outside of some rumbling in the media I see little evidence of public outrage or that the public is even capable of such a thing. If the financial looting that has gone on in recent years is not enough what chance is there for outrage at all? I suspect people will go along with the oligarchy even if they go out and seize our prettiest children for their enjoyment.  

    Maybe we have:

    A Population of Lawn Jockeys

  1. Does anyone expect these clowns to do anything of positive substance?


    …The charge towards continued subservancy of US citizens. They are simply actors, saying their lines, knowing they will be wallowing in cash given to them by their handlers once they “leave” government.

  2. Soulless Capitalism = Totalitarianism + Fascism

    Today’s version of capitalism sleeps dreaming of swastikas.

    Corporate Empire & its #1 product, War Inc., is a cancer devouring humanity.

    President Obama ran on Hope & Change, but it appears that Obama is just the latest “Corporate Spokesperson” selling the same old lies on behalf of the “ruling” corporate elite.

    Corporate Empire is THE enemy!      

  3. to spend another trillion dollars to build yet another technologies of Satan infrastructure to 1099 each other to death for the under a bridge abutment annual expense of 600 frigging dollars.  I think I’d rather nuke Iran and just get the whole deal over with, what do you think?

    And yeah,despite all the controversy I am all for waterboarding Ben Bernanke and his CFR ugly cousin Tim Geithner.

    Forget about the Oathkeepers, if the “intelligence” agencies had any intelligence they should know whom to “take out” to salvage what is left of America, but no, they are busy harrassing a mother of five whose name showed up on a protest list.

    I said weird stuff years ago

    Ah, but so much has happened since then.  Did I really miss my true spiritual calling by not going to Nebraska and signing up for the “resistance” militia.

    Thanks for the great piece, gottlieb.

    But the truth: Obama is but the latest happy, shiny face on a darkening landscape of Security State oppression, economic warfare of the rich against the poor and environmental destruction of the planet for the sake of greed.

    The National Security State is strong.
