Phillip Tilley: To solve a problem, you have to first know you have a problem.  Most of us fail to recognize that in fact there is a problem, and there lies the problem.  The problem is, we actually believe we are a free people living in a free country with a robust free market economy.  We think we elect the government officials that run this country.  This is what the New World Order wants you to think.

It’s closer to the truth to say that at the turn of the twentieth century, a group of monied elite overthrew the government of the United States.  It has been said we have the best Congress money can buy, and certainly bribery, blackmail and betrayal are not new to American Government.

On December 23, 1913, during Christmas break, with most of the Congressmen home with their families, the monied elite in Congress that stayed in Washington D.C. passed the Federal Reserve Act.  It was quickly signed into law before the other members of Congress could get back to Washington D.C. to do anything about it.

This is significant because up until then, the Constitution of the U.S. states that only the Treasury could issue legal money.  They did this by minting gold and silver coins and printing Treasury Notes that were backed by gold and silver.  Now however, this responsibility to issue legal tender currency (not money, currency) would be shared with a group of twelve privately owned banks that would collectively become known as the Federal Reserve, even though they were not Federal and had no reserve.

The Federal Reserve would be allowed to print and issue Federal Reserve Notes, a currency know as a fiat currency or backed by not gold or silver, but by nothing at all!  Furthermore, if other banks needed additional funds, they had to request them from the Federal Reserve Bank in their area.  Likewise banks were not allowed to keep excessive funds in their vaults.  These had to be surrendered to the Federal Reserve Bank in their area.  Now the Federal Reserve was in control of the Nations currency and money supply.

It wasn’t long before a rift started.  When banks had an excess of funds, what they surrendered to the area Federal Reserve Bank was Federal Reserve Notes or other paper money.  That was not what the Federal Reserve wanted. They wanted the gold and silver sent to them.  So to punish the bankers who held out the good stuff from them, the next time those banks needed additional funds, the Federal Reserve refused to deliver them.  This caused those banks to actually run out of money.  The Federal Reserve actually put them out of business because they wouldn’t play ball with them.

Monied elite interests that controlled the media at the time, (and for the most part still do) leaked the fact that some banks were running out of money.  This created a public panic and citizens rushed to their local banks to draw out their money.  As banks funds ran low, the Federal Reserve would send funds only to those banks that had in the past surrendered gold and silver to them.  They gave nothing to the other banks, thus putting their competition, those that opposed a worthless currency, out of business.

This went on for about a year and a half until President FDR was elected.  Being one of the monied elite and in league with the Federal Reserve, FDR declared a banking emergency and shut down all banks in the Nation for six days.  This of course predictably caused an even larger public panic.  Banks were re-opened and FDR issued Executive Order #6120 which made it illegal to own gold as a private citizen.  All gold was to be surrendered to the Treasury or the Federal Reserve.

Understand something here, the Government of this Nation is of the people, by the people and for the people.  That means the Government owns nothing of its own, it is only entrusted with assets which belong to the people of this Nation.  The Nations gold supply is really the peoples gold supply, that means you, all of you!

It is interesting that the Federal Reserve Banks did not want to accept their own Federal Reserve Notes.  If a chef won’t eat their own cooking you shouldn’t either.  For the job of controlling the Nations money supply, the Federal Reserve gets paid a fee known as Seigniorage.  This fee is not paid to them in Federal Reserve Notes. They refuse to accept them as payment because they know they are worth nothing.  They are paid in Gold Certificates which are redeemable for only one thing, GOLD!  If gold isn’t real money, why is it important that it is the only payment the Federal Reserve will accept?  Think about that, I mean really…think about it!

The whole conspiracy was sinister and slow.  Take 1% of the Nations gold as payment every year so nobody will notice.  1% is a small amount for a year, however that only lasts 100 years before it is all gone.  Remember the Federal Reserve Act was passed on December 23, 1913.  That means that at or around December 21, 2012, the date the Mayan calendar predicts destruction of life because (the Earth will move), the Nation will run out of gold to pay the Federal Reserve.

  Another term for the Earth moving is a shake-up or upheaval.

In case you are too poor to pay attention, this Nation is in an economic crisis, and every move being made doesn’t seem to be able to fix it.  That’s because fake money (Federal Reserve Notes) do not act like real money.  The mechanics that govern money do not work on the credit debt currency that we are forced to use.  In a couple of years when we no longer have gold to pay the Federal Reserve, what do you suppose will happen?

The Federal Reserve has suggested combining the currencies of Canada, the U.S. and Mexico into one currency called the Amero.  You would be able to exchange your Federal Reserve Notes for Amero at 10 dollars for one Amero.  Think about that!  That’s a ten to one reverse split and it may even be 15 or 20 to one if they can get away with it.  That would make your Federal Reserve Notes worth about a nickel, but then truly it already is against the real dollar.

It is only going to get worse and complete collapse of our economy is eminent.  Some people want the Money Matrix to continue because they feel warn and fuzzy and are comfortable where they are in the system.  But just as in the movie “The Matrix” where Neo wants to pull the plug on the system, if you don’t wake up now, it will be too late.  Wake up people, the Money Matrix has you!

The only politician you'll ever hear talk about this issue is Ron Paul.  I think it's because he's the only one in Washington that actually understand our economy.

We need to restore the Constitution of this country and return our fiat monetary system to the gold standard.  This would be difficult, but something we could do very easily is legalize gold and silver as a competing currency.    If you look at the price of oil in gold... it's flat.  In the Euro it went up 200% and in the USD it went up 350% I believe.

If you have looked into the whole New World Order "conspiracy" theory, where do you get your information?  The New World order is happening right now and I'm not trying to spread propaganda to get anyone to believe this.  Just some things you should look up are the Bilderbergs, Rockafeller's, Rothschild's, you'll see what I am talking about.  And those families are just the tip of the iceberg.

Rothschilds? (note- no apostrophy) You have to go back to the 18th century to find "evidence"? LOL!

I have to laugh because all you new world order conspiracists say it's been going on for centuries. Yet we're still here, thriving, at least under some guise of freedom and independence. I don't see any ruling families or monarchs.

But let's assume you're right that it's a mere handful of powerful people thoughout the ages that really control the country and the world. These people have the money and power to control all our lives without us even knowing it.

Do you really think it's wise to blow the lid off this? If these people are sooooo powerful, sooooo manipulative, and soooooo well planned is it wise to force them out of the shadows and into the mainstream of daylight? IOW, if they can control whole populations from behind the scenes while trying to remain hidden, once out in the open why should they bother with the masquerade anymore? Now they'll just operate openly, activate the police state that, according to you they own lock-stock-and-barrel, and it's 1984 at your front door.

Think about it.

A New World Order?  So just how new is new? happy.gif  

Once humanity learned that certain items were worth more than others there has been a controlling elite.  In anceint times it was salt, as in the saying "He is worth his salt."  Salt was used as a primary vital trade good, at one time it was worth more per pound than gold, silver or precious gems combined;  equal weight to equal weight.  Later it would be spices as both were used to preserve and cook food; drying and much later the smoking of meats and other foods had not yet become the norm.

Entire civilizations have risen and fallen on the backs of the lower masses, all the while the elite minority continue to thrive, or do they?  The DOOMSDAY SAYERS have risen and fallen with them, continually telling everyone that the sky is, or will be, falling within a selected length of time.  Sure enough the mighty do fall, right along with those they have trod upon.  In recent memory has been the Great Depression of the 1920's and 1930's.  Although the powers that be in the GOP in DC and elsewhere continue to stroll through life with demonic grins upon their faces, while the Democrats stumble, fumble, etc, just trying to get their own act together.  However the majority of the people are starting to wake up, you know the ones I talk about, the 97% of the population that has had it up to there with the BS from the 3%?

Maybe the so called New World Order needs to come down from their soapboxes and join the rest of us in firing the lot of the 3% from office, by voting everyone of them out of office enmasse.

Tilley had some interesting things to say about why Hitler did what he did in his book.  The question is. if you could get in a time machine and go back before WWII and kill the 15,000 people that were responsible for the eventual deaths of millions of lives, would you do it?

That presumes a complete change of history. Fiction writers have often pondered if killing Hitler and pals before they came to power, maybe even as children, would simply have delayed events. That is, someone else eventually would have risen to power and done more or less the same things.

Curious concept.

Tilley shows where Hitler made such a statement, only about WWI.  Tilley claims Hitler was actually trying in the beginning to rid Germany of those he felt had gained control of the finances and kept control of the country.  As FDR was steeling the gold in the U.S., Hitler was replacing the Jews that had control of the Bank of Germany, with Germans he trusted.  He wanted to get rid of the 15,000 people he believed ran the world to prevent WWII, and as we know, that only moved the cycle faster.  Tilleys perspective of (The New World Order) in history is to say the least, interesting and thought provoking.

It'd have to be a gradual transition.  I'd like to see the U.S. government take direct control of the money supply and open market operations.  We could do this by taking over the fed directly or setting up our own shop.   Which brings me to this question, if the Fed is a private company, has the U.S. government ever put the products/services, as provided by the Fed, out for bid?  If not, I beleive we may have a lawsuit. There is probably some fine print somewhere to prevent this but worth an investigation.

Tilley stated in his book that the Bretton Woods Agreement linked all currencies to the U.S. Federal Reserve Note in 1947.  That is why oil is calculated in dollars, and why U.S. currency is recognized World Wide and readily accepted.  The Euro is partially backed by gold, (10%) and is doing better than our currency.  As for the seigniorage, it is my understanding the Government, (Treasury Dept.) pays the Fed.  It's like a roach hotel for gold, it goes in, but nothing comes out, and it is run by cockroaches as well!
