The Breakfast of Plutocrats

Dissident Voice Article

By Kathleen Wallace Peine

I love it when a protest has an appropriate backdrop, but the aesthetics aren’t always considered. How much better would OWS be if that damn bull statue could have somebody’s laundry drying off his tail? Occupy Everything.

And somehow it’s just not the same to see a small Bank of America ATM being occupied. I want drama and vigor, not $2 per transaction. The Kansas City Occupy group has the local branch of the Federal Reserve as a backdrop. Nice. The employees come and go, having to witness all of the occupying. I presume they drive beater cars from the 80s, a move implemented to make ex local chair Herman Cain feel at home, like he never left the pizza delivery business. That’s his legacy. Well. that and the mustachiod fellows lurking in front of brick walls. He leaves those guys in his wake wherever he goes.

It’s amazing how little is known about the Federal Reserve; that is, by the folks just trying to exist in the US. They wonder why their money seems to have a built-in inflationary ticking bomb. It seems like that because it does, courtesy of every bailout and every backroom secret deal presided over by The Fed and the accomplices in the Treasury Department.

But people really don’t know much at all about The Fed. I would not be shocked if a poll conducted by Fox News would indicate that we’re all real jerks for talking about this. But also the poll would find that practically nobody in America knows what the Fed even is. Animal, mineral, leech? Without a doubt, most people think it’s just another branch of the Federal government (you know, like the Post Office!).

Even politicians reveal their ignorance when they cry for the Fed Chairman to “be fired” in an attempt to blossom some populist creds. Maybe they know that they are mouthing nonsense since the guys are appointed for 4 year terms, not to be removed even for presiding over cataclysmic policy. Hell, Obama will even give you a second term for that sort of thing.

I won’t even try to delve into the devil detail nonsense that is the Federal Reserve. I’ve been plodding though “The Creature from Jekyll Island” by G. Edward Griffin, and suffice it to say that an entity created on the sly by men too scared to use their last names during the train ride south to Georgia, who ultimately were headed for a secret island…oh and they had to use “new” servants shipped to said island so the regulars wouldn’t be recognized…well, it was probably not an up and up endeavor. More like a meeting of criminal gangs putting aside differences to ensure a flow of greenery.

The common reason given for The Fed’s creation was to respond to the “Panics” of the 1800s, but after reading about the burgeoning number of banks during the early 1900s, it sounds more likely that this was nothing but an improper cartel getting set up, one to favor the large boys over the upstarts. We’ve had some notable “panics”, a.k.a. Depressions and Recessions since their creation; they seem to have failed in their primary fake mandate.

The six men who attended the planning meeting were said to represent ¼ of the total wealth in the world, if you can wrap your head around that. Maybe laudanum would have been a better response to panic then to plunge forward with a plan from these guys.

The details are convoluted and difficult to unravel, just like the packaging of shit “assets” which, through the magic of Math, were weighted, valued and scrubbed until the core substance became another item. It’s always obscured by thick curtains until no daylight can come through. And then there’s the inevitable favorite stand-by excuse. “Just leave it to us, you wouldn’t understand this complexity. We are geniuses, goddammit.”

The basic identity of the Federal Reserve is not understood by Americans, that’s true, probably because it’s so damn bizarre — it not being Federal and having no Reserves. It has been pointed out by others even sillier than me that the Federal Reserve resembles Grape Nuts for those very reasons. An entity with a name that reflects not at all with what it is. I’d love to see one of those connection/association ACT type questions matching Grape Nuts and Federal Reserve. Can you recognize the similar traits of these word groupings?

It’s really no wonder that people don’t understand even the basics; it’s not like the commonly accessed news outlets would ever touch this.

When they do delve into financial chicanery, it is inevitably from the point of view of the guy who dropped the Rufie in the glass. One notable example being the nauseating Erin Burnett who now has her own Wall Street Variety Hour on CNN. She hit the ground running; one of her first pieces being “Seriously, OWS?”. She seriously ridiculed OWS in a manner as slanted as the asses these Wall Street guys sniff cocaine off of. Oh, sorry — was that biased on my part? My bias comes to you for free, though! Hers….? Who knows how much it costs. Indirectly, quite a bit for the average American, I’m guessing.

Burnett put forth the premise that TARP had been paid back for one thing. Once again, it’s so very complicated for us rabble, but Edward Griffin points out in the Jekyll Island book that these “paybacks” came from essentially insolvent entities, begging the question…..was this just another example of the Fed’s notorious “Don’t Get Audited,  And Don’t Tell” largess? Where the hell could the money have come from? It’s hard to explain, and deliberately so. In one instance, initial bail-out money was paid back with secondary bail-out money. It’s all just ridiculous, looking under these curtains. But it works pretty well; the news readers declare the reality points that come off the fax for the day, then for good measure, ridicule someone for flair. It’s very distracting and seems to have worked well in the past.

Burnett is an especially egregious offender, her pedigree being that of a CNBC “babe” (and I’m not saying she isn’t pretty in that way that very plain girls who have money manage to achieve, and besides we’ve been told she’s lovely). I’m being catty because she started it. Seriously. She is about to marry a Wall Street Citigroup executive and presumably finds time for all of this when she’s not going to Council of Foreign Relations meetings (I’m not making that up). So, yeah, it’s not too shocking that there isn’t a lot of clarity in financial reporting of any kind. Who would have thought 15 years ago that we’d be going to Rolling Stone magazine for the most comprehensive looting coverage?

Then we hear a month or so ago that Fed wants to have an outreach education program for those who are discussing The Fed online. They want to “identify and reach out”. Crap, that means us, I’m thinking! Practice saying “Do it to Julia”…….. (Roberts, I hope). She shouldn’t have glorified hooking.

And neither should Erin Burnett for the financial industry.

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?
