If you wanted to destroy the infrastructure that holds our constitutional republic in place, how would you go about that? As with a controlled demolition you would need to dislodge the foundation from the bedrock where it is anchored and weaken the framework that holds the structure together. In practice, you would demolish the laws that support the legal and financial structure. Our constitutional republic would then collapse into its own footprint, meeting no resistance.
Billionaire George Soros claimed the world financial system has disintegrated, adding that there is yet no prospect of a near-term resolution to the crisis. 1 If this were true it would be a blessing. It is more likely a pretext for consolidating world financial control through an illegitimate global oligarchy that supersedes national sovereignty. Media propagandists are spinning the “new” idea of one world currency issued by a global monetary authority. Herding the fearful into a blind alley with soothing promises of international cooperation, the same criminals who engineered global financial destruction are promoting the International Monetary Fund as the savior of choice to issue one world currency. The IMF’s synthetic currency, Special Drawing Rights, is determined by the fluctuating value of fiat currencies generated by four privately-owned central banks. SDRs are fabricated debt owed to a private banking cartel.
Would a universal token of debt, fabricated by the same private banking cartel that engineered our staggering debt, be a remedy for national insolvency? Would global indebtedness to this cartel restore the productive economy? Whose social priorities would be financed by a global banking oligarchy? Would this oligarchy continue the practice of withholding credit from cities and states, farmers, small businesses, homeowners and entrepreneurs while fabricating credit for weapons, war, gambling and fraud? Would consolidating a global debt monopoly counteract or amplify the risk of global systemic collapse? Transnational institutions that infect every aspect of the global financial system have just demonstrated the dangers of being too interconnected to quarantine and too well-connected to prosecute.
Why would a sovereign people who are fully capable of issuing their own money and credit surrender that authority to a supranational oligarchy that issues fiat debt? Abolishing national currencies essentially dissolves national sovereignty.
While media ventriloquists would have us believe rampant and random greed provoked a spontaneous “global financial crisis,” the historical record indicates deliberate and carefully planned destruction of national sovereignty, worldwide. The plans for consolidating private control of global wealth have been in motion for over a century, accelerating exponentially with the frenzy of neoliberal deregulation that enabled financial fraud to metastasize globally. Carroll Quigley, a Georgetown University historian and Bill Clinton’s mentor, was privy to documents and meetings held by the international powers of financial capitalism. He was not speculating on their motives but rather reporting as a trusted insider, an eye witness who described their intent:
Following World War I … “the powers of financial capitalism had another 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 meetings and conferences. The apex of the system was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basle, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world’s central banks, which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank, in the hands of men like Montagu Norman of the Bank of England, Benjamin Strong of the New York Federal Reserve Bank, Charles Rist of the Bank of France, and Hjalmar Schacht of the Reichsbank, sought to dominate its government by its ability to control treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence co-operative politicians by subsequent rewards in the business world.” ~ Carroll Quigley, 1966 2
Founded in 1973 by David Rockefeller and Zbigniew Brzezinski, the Trilateral Commission’s stated goal is to foster a “New International Economic Order” that would supplant the historical economic order. Paul Volcker ~ past Federal Reserve chairman, Rockefeller trust fund administrator and chairman of Obama’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board ~ is the North American chairman. Speaking to that group in 1991 David Rockefeller stated:
“We are grateful to The Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto determination practiced in past centuries.” ~ David Rockefeller, 1991 3
A plan for the world that “marches” humanity towards a world government could only have been developed in the shadows, although constitutional scholars would hardly share Rockefeller’s gratitude to the Washington Post, New York Times, Time magazine and other great publications for half a century of media complicity with Treason. A “supranational sovereignty” of self-appointed feudal lords violates the right of sovereign nations to auto determination, the right of nation states to protect their financial sovereignty from “world bankers” and the right of sovereign individuals to form governments that derive their powers from the consent of the governed. In this royal cabal’s world view, these rights do not exist. The earth is for selfish plundering and human beings are merely expendable serfs to be exploited. National currencies, government regulations, international law, civil liberties, environmental and worker protections are seen as obstacles to self-gratification that must be demolished. Their vision of utopia is a global dictatorship of world bankers and self-appointed elites.
Delusional as such subversive ambitions may sound, the World Trade Organization has already usurped illegitimate authority to supersede the regulations of sovereign nations, overriding international human rights law and the rights of regional governments to protect their populations. The North American Union, masterminded by Richard Gardner, promoted by Robert Pastor and engineered by this cabal will dissolve the borders between the US, Canada and Mexico and superimpose a legislative body that supersedes the authority of Congress with a continental NAFTA parliament of free trade pirates, unrestrained by regulations that protect the public and the earth. 4 It should come as no surprise that media directors complicit with treason have failed to alert the public to this covert destruction of national sovereignty. The Bank for International Settlements is consolidating world financial control by herding nation states into five Regional Currency Areas that will ultimately be merged into one. 5 The European Union, with a supranational parliament and constitution that were forced on European citizens despite their veto, overrides the sovereignty of individual European nation states.
Fred Bergsten, a US Treasury official and founding member of the Trilateral Commission and subversive Peterson Institute, accurately conveyed the ramifications of abandoning national currencies:
“The adoption of a common currency is by far the boldest chapter of European integration. Money traditionally has been an integral element of national sovereignty … and the decision by Germany and France to give up their mark and franc … represents the most dramatic voluntary surrender of sovereignty in recorded history. The European Central Bank that will manage the euro is a truly supranational institution.” ~ C. Fred Bergsten, 1999 6
Bergsten rightly acknowledges that, “money is an integral element of national sovereignty.” Therefore, the private ownership of one global currency strips all countries of their national sovereignty in one broad stroke and what better way to shorten the process than to engineer the ‘disintegration of the world financial system,’ with a global derivatives Ponzi scheme.
Bergsten’s euphoria over European loss of national sovereignty is an expression of victory, the triumph of subversion. European nation states did not voluntarily surrender their national sovereignty. They were forced to surrender, just as Americans are being stripped of their national sovereignty, piece by piece.
In 1974, international banker, Trilateralist and CFR member, Richard N. Gardner outlined a comprehensive strategy for the new world order in an influential article in Foreign Affairs entitled “The Hard Road to World Order.” He stated:
“In short, the ‘house of world order’ would have to be built from the bottom up rather than from the top down. It will look like a great confusion, but an end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece, will accomplish much more than the old-fashioned frontal assault.” 7
Gardner’s strategy for demolishing national sovereignty lays out a sweeping program for successfully setting up world government: strengthening the International Monetary Fund with leverage to wreck the economies of entire countries, as it did to Argentina in 2001; rewriting the ground rules for international trade through GATT (forerunner of the WTO), that “will subject countries to an unprecedented degree of international surveillance over, up to now, sacrosanct ‘domestic’ policies;” creating transnational trade regimes as pretexts for world control, such as the EU, NAFTA and a Free Trade Area of the Americas that would create a massive outflux of jobs and factories from the US and lead, over time, to a complete subordination of American government to a continental corporate authority; giving the United Nations ultimate jurisdiction over the oceans, atmosphere, electromagnetic spectrum, and outer space; disarming all nations to such an extent that, eventually, “no state would have the military power to challenge the progressively strengthened UN Peace Force” – under whose authority the first Gulf War, and its 12-year aftermath of bombing raids and crippling sanctions, was carried out. From Somalia to the Balkans to Sierra Leone to Afghanistan, United Nations “peacekeepers” have become nearly ubiquitous enforcers of world order out of the barrel of a gun.
Steve Bonta’s analysis of Gardner’s strategy concludes:
“If the insiders could have accomplished overtly and instantly what they are now piecing together through stealth and patient gradualism, they surely would have done so. They’ve had to proceed slowly and cautiously on their “Hard Road to World Order,” and their slowness and caution shows that they fear awakening the American people if they try to do too much too fast.” 8
Evidently, the “old-fashioned frontal assault” became more desirable than “an end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece.” The explosion that dislodged the US Constitution from its bedrock was delivered with a Shock and Awe attack on Americans on September 11, 2001. The plan for totalitarian world order that was not “subject to the bright lights of publicity for forty years,” was rapidly completed in the aftermath of 9/11 when the constitutional relationship between US citizens and their government was radically altered, without their consent. The legal framework protecting citizens from government abuse was detonated, piece by piece, in a demolition wave that collapsed the US constitutional infrastructure:
Office of Legal Counsel justifications for kidnapping, torture, unlawful detention, military tribunals and secret prisons, overturning habeas corpus; militarizing domestic control in violation of Posse Comitatus; White House assumption of dictatorial powers with executive orders and presidential signing statements; Patriot Act destruction of civil liberties; domestic surveillance and personal data mining; control of media and journalism; Internet censorship; nationwide detention camps; unconstitutional pretexts for declaring martial law; domestic mercenary hit squads and intelligence gathering outsourced to private “security” companies; union-busting, ICE raids and deportation executed by the Homeland Security Gestapo.
The demolition wave that took down the global financial system and crashed the US economy was ignited with well placed financial explosives by top officials within the Federal Reserve, Treasury, White House, Congress and key financial institutions. Laws were dismantled and financial derivatives were deregulated to clear a path for the subprime demolition wave. On September 11, 2001, an estimated $240 billion dollars was covertly added to the M2/M3 money supply with the ‘settlement’ of off-balance sheet, illegal bonds created in 1991 by George H.W. Bush and Federal Reserve chairman Alan Greenspan. The banking institutions that funded the subprime operation opened nationwide mortgage retail outlets to bankroll predatory loans that were fanned into speculative equities, hedge fund, and derivative markets ~ HSBC, UBS, Credit Suisse First Boston, Triad Guaranty Trust Insurance Corp, Deutsche Bank, Citigroup, Bank of America, Chase Manhattan, Carlyle Group and Goldman Sachs. 9
In the four months after 9/11, the total money supply increased by $650 billion, the single greatest burst of monetary increase in modern times. After pumping $3 trillion in excess liquidity into the economy, a 32% expansion of the money supply since 1994, the financial managers of this operation created comparable monetary ‘demand’ for this capital with Ten Year Treasury Notes in a highly coordinated strategy to channel this excess liquidity into the high risk subprime market. A broad array of tactics was used to dismantle financial regulations and block actions that would have prevented systemic collapse, including a White House law suit to prevent state regulators from enforcing their predatory lending laws. 10
Prior to 9/11 the individuals and institutions that collapsed the Soviet economy and robbed the treasury were under investigation by multiple federal agencies for evidence of financial fraud – potentially related to 280,000 metric tons of stolen gold. These investigations were permanently aborted by the complete destruction of all case evidence – stored in the 9/11 targets: World Trade Centers 1 and 2 were pulverized within ten seconds each; WTC 7 was collapsed within 7 seconds; WTC 6 housing $240 billion in illegal bond certificates was exploded and the Office of Naval Intelligence at the Pentagon was demolished ~ thereby destroying all evidence against the same individuals who subsequently funded and executed the controlled demolition of the United States. 11
These are the architects of “regime change” – the psychopathic assertion that criminals are free to overthrow governments, murder civilians and steal the assets of sovereign nations ~ “because we can” ~ as Richard Cheney declared. In a sovereign nation governed by the rule of law, these subversives would have good reason to fear prosecution for treason and war crimes. Hence, the demolition of the US Constitution and re-engineering of law to provide themselves with immunity and crush political dissent.
Ethical minds do not conceive covert schemes to “march” humanity toward world dictatorship, nor plot the destruction of national sovereignty to rule the world. Human beings with a functioning conscience do not orchestrate mass murder, stage terrorist attacks, bankrupt economies and overthrow governments. These crimes against humanity are manifestations of criminal insanity. Delusions of grandeur, subversion, compulsive lying, larceny, kidnapping, torture and genocide indicate clinical symptoms of psychopathy and severe antisocial character disorders. 12
The greatest danger of any centrally-controlled system is the ease with which it can be hijacked by tyrants. That alone, is good reason to decentralize the global financial system, diversify national currencies and establish public control of money and credit within every nation state. International commitment to strengthening constitutional protection of civil liberties in every country must begin with repealing totalitarian “anti-terrorism” laws and dismantling the architecture of illegitimate “supranational sovereignty.”

12 Psychopathology: In contrast to Hollywood’s inaccurate portrayal of psychopaths as blue collar misfits who stalk young women and rob convenience stores, most psychopaths come from well-to-do families and are white collar criminals who, because of their wealth and position, seldom face consequences. Psychopaths are devoid of conscience, incapable of compassion, accountability or remorse, lie routinely, manipulate and deceive, operate in secrecy, control and suppress information. They view themselves with grandiose self-importance and are flagrantly contemptuous of the law. Their craving for dominance over others propels them into the centers of power where they are overrepresented in the top ranks of corporations, politics, law enforcement, law firms and the media.

Thank you, Nikki. You are creating a great work of art and science that is a breath of fresh air. Efforts like this inspire hope for change. Your developing full article deserves vigorous dissemination. I am in awe at the potential this kind of truth speaking has to spark a second American revolution. Other forces are needed of course to come into play but you have provided the essential ingredient of information to make the mix work. This is a keeper. I intend to reread it as often as necessary to fully absorb it. I’ll pass it on to my 16 year old son who is taking American history; this is the kind of history they don’t teach in school, a lamentable lacuna in anyone’s education. Now what we need is love to drive this baby home.
The element that the elites, wealth bankers and “pyschopaths” ca calculate is the reactionof the pblic. At some point, some tipping point, the public wwill rebell and overthrown the corrupt delusional lot.
The vector you describe is quite real, and I hope your subsequent writings address the role of Goldman-Sachs. As we write, Goldman Sachs already ‘owns’ the BIS board members of Canada, Mexico, China, Italy and the US, all within the last few years. This cabal is close to closure. For them, – and their rationalization for their greed – is that a US led coalition supposedly represents the victory of Abrahamic values, capitalism and procedural democracy. In reality, it will mean handing over the reigns of global domination to the Chinese, and that culture has never embraced any of the above values. The internationalists justify their rape, theft and greed on the basis of world peace, but prepare to sell humanity to Chinese domination. The opportunism of Goldman Sachs will result in the enslavement of the US, and loss of its sovereignty.

I wish this could actually be a possibility. It isn’t, at least not in the foreseeable future. Our troops have learned well how to deal with “insurrections” and “rebellions”. There are concentration camps set up here in the US for millions of “troublemakers”, rioters, or “domestic ter-ror-ists”. No one I’ve yet read talking about revolution or rebellion have even a clue about who their real enemies are. Worse, almost everyone most people think are their enemies are probably not, an may even be their friends.
It is seldom if ever that a rebellion to replace a despot fail to install a worse despot in his place. And for every guilty person that suffers a hundred or a thousand innocent will suffer. That is the way of revolutions.
