Wall Street Oligarchy and American Empire

Citibank’s recent announcement that it may require seven days notice prior to honoring withdrawals is just the latest small brushstroke on a much larger canvas being painted by the banking system and the US government.  The broader picture is shocking for those watching as it comes into view.  Americans must heed Martin Luther King’s warning, “today our very survival depends on our ability to stay awake.”

The United States is shifting from a long period of perceived growth to a significant period of decline that will surprise many Americans as they realize the political propaganda about economic recovery was a lie.  At that point, it will also be clear that we do not live in a constitutional republic but rather a financial empire where the Wall Street oligarchy rules not only our lives but also the governments we elect.  Ever since Wall Street grew to replace our constitutional system of towns, counties, and states, we have not had the freedom we thought we had.

As long as the banking system is inflating, thereby creating the perception of growth and freedom, people are lulled into compliance with top-down rule by bankers.  But once the system starts deflating, banks will kick people out of their homes, jack up credit card rates, shutdown access to cash, employees will lose their jobs, and governments will ramp up the tax machine and may even confiscate bank accounts to force Treasury investments.  General compliance by the population will then be replaced with anger.  This is why a high tech police/military control system is now in place across the US.  The situation will be particularly difficult for those who will go hungry as things worsen in the future.  The government will make it very clear whom it serves—Wall Street vs. the people—and we will regret ever allowing the powers behind Wall Street to replace our constitutional government.

Wall Street Government: Follow the Money

What most of us do not realize yet is we are governed by private banks, not elected representatives of a free republic.  Sometimes this is clear to us in our individual lives as banks have a far more dramatic impact on us than governments do.  But people usually do not consider how banks also rule governments, businesses, non-profits, schools, and everything else that depends on money.  A quick look at macroeconomic cashflows illustrates this.  Based on this diagram, who do you think rules the US?  Just follow the money.  Governments and businesses are hostage to bank money, therefore they work for the banks, just as you do.  In fact the IRS is nothing but a collection agency for the mega banks that own most of our debt—forget the propaganda that it collects money for the children.

Wall Street Oligarchy and American Empire  vrabel022410

The top of this system is the Federal Reserve and the Wall Street cartel—the real government of the United States.  Somehow this goes unnoticed despite the fact that bankers run the US Treasury, tell presidents what to do, and staff the rest of the executive branch with their own representatives (the key officials in the cabinet and regulatory agencies are all members of the Wall Street banker club called the Council on Foreign Relations).  It even went unnoticed as the government and the Fed stole trillions from the people and handed it over to the bankers after the crash of 2008.

The Crash of 2008:  Consolidating Power and Control

A critical aspect of the government’s response to the crash was a dramatic shift from the “smalls” to the “bigs.”  Small banks, governments, and people had their money transferred up to the big banks, governments, and people.  The country was already a top-down driven empire vs. the bottom-up republic we are taught in school.  But now that the Wall Street / DC axis has stripped all the power and wealth from the rest of the country and future generations, the US has shifted to 100% complete top-down control.
The states are bankrupt. Local communities are impoverished.  Small businesses are on the ropes.  Small banks are being sucked into Wall Street thanks to the Fed artificially propping up the “bigs” and the FDIC randomly seizing small banks to hand them over to Wall Street.  Meanwhile the few monopolists remaining on Wall Street are as powerful as ever, DC has as much revenue as ever, and people working for these power centers are being paid well as they prepare to exert control of the rest of us.

It is really shocking what government officials can get away with on TV as they spin lies for Wall Street.  They claim they are helping us by taking our money and handing it to the richest clique in the country.  We are taught to trust them, to submit to our leaders, to hope in their solutions. This is The Twilight Zone and The Matrix combined.  The government treats us as Truman in The Truman Show, and we let them get away with it. Meanwhile Wall Street laughs as they party in the Caymans and park their money that used to be yours in Switzerland.  Again, all we need to do is follow the money to see the truth.  Power and wealth are being consolidated at the top while everything beneath the Wall Street / DC control system is being starved.

Hidden Fascism and the Fake Politics of Left vs. Right

The great economic debate between socialism and capitalism that happens in the US (illustrated in the cash flow diagram) is no debate at all.  People who believe in freedom through the benevolence of local community, i.e. the classic liberal, and those who believe in freedom through the benevolence of Main Street business and free market forces, i.e. the classic conservative, have both been hijacked.  Due to our monetary system, their energies have been harnessed into unknowingly propping up the Wall Street oligarchy.

The debate is actually between nationally controlled socialism, quite different from the community socialism that has existed at the tribal/church/neighborhood level, and the non-free-market capitalism that exists in the US today, which is really corporatism under the Wall Street money monopoly.  The oligarchy controls both.  So the debate only allows us to choose between two sides of the same thing.  Neoclassical economics hides this issue by ignoring the truth of our debt-based monetary system that gives the oligarchy control over all the value created in the economy.  The type of socialism and capitalism we have in the US today props up the elite oligarchy just as much as any other top-down system used throughout history.  Oligarchy is anathema to freedom, community, and the American republic.  The system must be changed.

Despite their rhetoric, both sides of the establishment, left and right, fuel the two key components of our pyramid system ruled by the Wall Street oligarchy.  Rather than being two different choices of left VERSUS right, the debate creates a monolithic system of left AND right as the two sides swap positions every four to eight years while nothing substantial changes.  This is the engine of fascism—big corporations and big government working together under the top-down rule of mega banks.  Until the debate can move beyond the Wall Street establishment that controls both parties, this engine will continue.  Its inevitable conclusion is frightening if nothing is changed.

How to Change It

As I have said in previous articles, this oligarchy must be dethroned:

  1. Be aware as we approach the next phase of economic decline.  Do not be appeased with the Wall Street / DC solutions peddled by the same people that caused the problem.  They will seduce us by appearing to make things more comfortable initially, but their design will centralize power further and make this problem worse.  We must be willing to deal with short-term pain in order to develop a real fix.
  2. Find national leaders who understand this issue.  Politicians who do not talk about it are either ignorant of our core problem or pawns of the empire.
  3. Push the federal government to issue sovereign money—money that is not a debt to financiers.  The Constitution demands this in Article 1 Section 8.  It is the only way to fix the problem illustrated in the cashflow diagram above.  The United States is supposed to be a sovereign government, not subordinate to banks.
  4. Push your state legislatures to spend money into the system for infrastructure projects, rather than borrowing it from banks.  (see the Minnesota Transportation Act).  States are likewise supposed to be sovereign, not hostage to banks.
  5. Reconstitute local communities.  Develop a neighborhood credit/debit system. Stop spending all your time serving the corporate empire to collect bank credit.  That only fuels the empire system.
  6. Participate in party politics at the grassroots level by getting to know your Precinct Executive or running for that office.  (see the National Precinct Alliance).  Bottom-up party activity is the only way to take the parties away from the Wall Street empire.  If all you do is watch their corporate TV commercials and vote every four years, you are contributing to the problem.  Choosing Republican or Democrat puff pieces in that way is no different than choosing Coke or Pepsi based on how commercials make us feel.
  7. Move money into local credit unions, community banks, or convert some into debt-free money, i.e. precious metals, and store it outside the Wall Street system.
  8. And for those in enforcement jobs who work for this system—police, IRS, FBI, etc. and my old honorable colleagues in the military:  you are serving an oligarchy and the narcissistic Ivy Leaguers who run the empire for them.  You are not serving the free, constitutional government of a republic.  Do the honorable thing.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
