The Government is Intentionally Attacking Your Wealth and Financial Independence!

Geithner Attack - Government Attacking Financial Freedom

I’m mad as hell about the shellacking our government has planned for you … for me … and for millions of other honest, hard-working Americans … and I absolutely refuse to stay silent while good people are stripped of their life savings, investments and even the retirement funds that are due to them … and by our own leaders!

For the sake of clarity and brevity and to ensure a fast and easy read, below, Lorimer Wilson, editor of Financial Article Summaries Today and, provides reformatted and edited excerpts from Larry Edelson’s original article Dollar Doomsday 2010. Edelson goes on to say:

If it’s hard for you to believe that our own leaders have turned on us – that they are intentionally attacking your wealth and financial independence and that they have already begun executing their plan – I certainly understand but please – for your own sake and for your family’s safety – hear me out.

U.S. Has an Utterly Unpayable $127.8 Trillion in Debt Obligations
Ask anybody about how much Washington owes and they’re likely to say the national debt is somewhere around $12.8 trillion. As shocking as that massive number is, however, it is just a fantasy — a tiny fraction of the gargantuan amount our government really owes.

In actual fact, our real national debt is nearly TEN TIMES GREATER! In addition to that official $12.8 trillion national debt, Washington has written $108 trillion in off-budget, unfunded IOUs on Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, its prescription drug program, its veterans benefits programs and its Federal pension programs that must also be paid. That adds up to more than $120 trillion and that’s not even counting the $1 trillion the new health care bill will cost us or the trillions in NEW deficits projected over the next 10 years! The truth of the matter is that, altogether, our leaders have obligated us … our children … and our children’s children … to pay off an utterly unpayable $127.8 trillion in debt.

Global Investors in U.S. Treasuries Are Recoiling in Horror
Until recently, we could count on overseas investors to buy our treasuries — effectively loan Washington the money it needs to pay its bills. In fact, foreigners fully fund over HALF of our borrowing addiction, holding $9.7 trillion in U.S. securities — including almost $4.6 trillion in bonds. They are horrified these days, however, at our leaders’ inability to manage the nation’s finances and wondering if we’ll be able to make good on our obligations to them and starting to snap their wallets shut.

a) In November 2009, for instance, China — the world’s largest investor in U.S. government debt — became a net SELLER of treasuries.

b) In December China sold a whopping $34 billion worth of U.S. government bonds with others following suit: Net overseas holdings of short-term treasuries fell by $53 billion.

c) In January 2010, foreign net purchases of U.S. Treasury securities plunged a shocking 69.8%. Japan, the second-largest foreign holder of U.S. debt, was also a net seller.

d) In February 2010, Beijing sold yet ANOTHER $11.5 billion of U.S. Treasuries, making that four consecutive months of dumping U.S. bonds.

This is all happening because Washington’s debts have finally reached the point of no return – they are absolutely, positively UNPAYABLE! We have reached the point of no return.

What are the Alternatives?
The simple truth, of course, is that Washington will never repay the full $127.8 trillion it owes. Think through the alternatives:

1. Borrow our way out of debt?
Virtually impossible. As we’ve seen, foreign investors who have loaned us the money that Washington needs to stay in business are already fed up. They’re worried that we’ll never be able to repay what we owe them. They’re now becoming net SELLERS of treasuries so it’s nearly impossible that they’ll be willing to throw trillions more of their money our way. Plus, even the mere hint that Washington was trying to borrow trillions more would crush bond prices and light the fuse on an interest rate explosion that would kill the economy.

2. Implement massive spending cuts?
A snowball’s chance in hell! The White House and Congress will continue doing what they’ve always done and what they’re doing right now – finding dozens of outrageous new ways to waste your money and plunge us even deeper in debt.
Meanwhile, Washington WILL make a show of addressing the crisis by delaying the retirement age for Social Security from age 65 to 68 and by reducing benefits.

How does that help you? It doesn’t. It just dilutes down what you’re already owed even more so if you’re looking for any meaningful cuts in wasteful spending in Washington, forget about it. Any real cuts needed to make any noticeable dent in the government’s $127.8 trillion debt would probably cause riots in the streets and guarantee a quick end to the career of every politician who voted for them.

3. Raise taxes drastically?
Sure, the Obama administration will raise your taxes but even the White House says that the most startling proposals would only generate an additional $43 billion in revenue. $43 billion, however, is only 3% of our $1.6 trillion annual deficit and only about one-third of one percent of the total $127.8 trillion Washington owes. At that rate, it would take 300 years to repay our government’s debt with new taxes! In fact, it would take new taxes of $1.1 million for every U.S. household to pay off this debt. Nobody has that kind of money, of course, and besides, a tax increase representing just a fraction of that amount would surely kill this feeble recovery, drive unemployment into the stratosphere and light the fuse on a Great Depression that makes the last one pale by comparison.

That leaves Obama and Bernanke with one and ONLY one alternative …

4. Devalue the U.S. dollar?
When war strategies to vanquish enemies wind up killing innocent civilians, it’s called “collateral damage.” Similarly, when political strategies to vanquish debt wipe out your wealth, the same term applies, and right now President Obama and Fed Chief Bernanke know that there is ONLY one way they can ever hope to make good on their massive debt obligations and that is to devalue the U.S. dollar! Only then can they hope to repay Washington’s debts — by doing it with cheaper dollars.

Obama and Bernanke also know that by doing so, they’re also gutting the value of every dollar you earn, spend, save, invest and plan to use in retirement but they think they have no choice. To allow Washington to default on its debts and obligations would almost surely cause the entire U.S. economic house of cards to collapse — and the blame would land squarely on the Obama administration’s shoulders.

You? You’re little more than collateral damage. If the only way to delay default is to rob you of everything you’ve worked for and everything you’re counting on to see you through retirement — that’s evidentially just fine with them.

What is the Government Doing to Resolve the Situation?
Our government has begun intentionally debasing our own currency by:

1. Flooding the World with Unbacked Paper Dollars
Money is subject to the laws of supply and demand just like any commodity. If you want to lower the price, simply increase the supply. Just do that and the buying power of the greenback will plunge. Your bank statement may still say you still have $25,000 but in truth, when you go to spend that money, it only buys as much as $18,000, or $15,000, or $12,000 used to because the value of your money has been stolen from you.

Just in the last two months alone, the Fed has agreed to create $1.25 trillion out of thin air to buy mortgage-backed securities including another $300 billion to buy U.S. Treasuries alone. The liabilities on the Fed’s balance sheet have roughly DOUBLED — from $1.2 trillion a year ago to more than $2 trillion today – and the actions announced by the Fed in March are most likely to expand that to well over $3 trillion over the next year!

From September 10, 2008 to March 10 of this year, Bernanke has increased the nation’s monetary base from $850 billion to $2.1 trillion. That’s an irresponsible, irrational and insane increase of 2.5 times in just 18 months — and you must not underestimate its sweeping historical significance:

Nearly 218 years ago, Treasury Secretary Alexander Hamilton established the dollar as America’s national currency when Congress passed the Coinage Act of 1792. Since that memorable date, the United States has suffered through one pandemic, two great depressions, 11 major wars, and 44 recessions. Four U.S. presidents have been assassinated while in office. Hundreds of thousands of businesses have gone bankrupt and tens of millions of Americans have lost their jobs but not once has the U.S. government ever resorted to the kind of extreme abuses of its money-borrowing and money-printing power we’re seeing today!

2. Defaulting on its Debts by Devaluation
You’ve probably been hearing a lot lately about how overvalued the Chinese yuan is and how that gives the Chinese an unfair trade advantage and how hard the Obama administration has been working to convince Beijing to raise the yuan’s value against the dollar in order to level the playing field but the only problem is that it is all a lie.

The truth is, the average Chinese worker earns a tiny fraction as much as American workers do. Even if the yuan DOUBLED or TRIPLED in value against the dollar, Chinese products would still be far cheaper on world markets than U.S.-made products so what’s the real reason why Washington is so desperate to have China INcrease the value of the yuan? Simple: By doing so, they will be automatically DEcreasing the relative value of the dollar — and they’ll be able to repay China, and everyone else who owns treasuries or is owed money by Uncle Sam using CHEAPER dollars!

Don’t think it’s going to happen? Well, let me tell you something: For the last nine years I’ve been warning that China would keep the value of its yuan extremely low — so it could keep its exports cheap, build up a massive trade surplus with the U.S. and a huge pile of cash but I also warned that, as soon as it had a big cash hoard and a strong enough domestic consumption to sustain its economy WITHOUT such massive growth in its exports to the U.S., it would let the yuan get stronger, driving DOWN the value of the U.S. dollar – and that day has come. China will soon go ahead with a yuan revaluation — and dollar devaluation.

Such a revaluation ot its currency won’t negatively impact China nearly as much because Beijing has been preparing for this the entire time by gobbling up natural resources left and right, not only for strategic supply needs, but also to hedge against the inevitable U.S. dollar devaluation.

The steps are now in motion:

a) Singapore, for the first time in its history, pushed the value of its currency higher.
b) The Korean won, Malaysian ringgit, Indian rupee and Taiwan dollar will likely soon begin to rise rapidly against the dollar.
c) China will probably soon end the yuan’s peg to the greenback and allows its currency to move higher.

Be Advised: You Are the Intended Victim!
With each and every revaluation, YOUR dollar is worth LESS and make no mistake about it: This is nothing more and nothing less than highway robbery and YOU are the intended victim!

The greenback has already plunged as much as 33% in real, trade-weighted terms since its 2002 high. By that measure, every dollar in your wallet … in your savings account … in your brokerage account … and in your retirement account is worth only 67 cents. Indeed, since November 2008, the U.S. Dollar Index has dropped more than 10% and even shed almost 5% against our northern neighbor the Canadian dollar just since the beginning of 2010.

The handwriting is on the wall:

This great dollar disaster is only just beginning. Obama and Bernanke have no choice. Either they dramatically devalue the dollar over the next three years, or they go down in history as the first administration to default — to welch on the government’s debt obligations.

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?
