Quick Summary: The global bankers, who caused our economic crisis, are attempting to deflect blame and divide the American public by escalating attacks on public-sector workers. The battle in Wisconsin, which is spreading across the entire nation, should be viewed in a global economic context. Do not let the obsolete Republican vs. Democrat charade confuse you. Even if you believe Unions have been corrupted, in this case you have to go with the strategy: “The enemy of my enemy is my friend.”
The Global Economic Elite have launched a war on 99.9% of the US public, we must unite and rally together. Unions have played a key role in uprisings from Europe to the Middle East. We must seize this opportunity and let Wisconsin be a spark to light the fires of non-violent rebellion throughout the United States.
There is a rule of war that many people are failing to understand: “Do not fight the last war.” In The 33 Strategies of War, Robert Greene calls this “The Guerrilla-War-Of-The-Mind Strategy:”
“What most often weighs you down and brings you misery is the past, in the form of unnecessary attachments, repetitions of tired formulas, and the memory of old victories and defeats. You must consciously wage war against the past and force yourself to react to the present moment. Be ruthless on yourself; do not repeat the same tired methods.”
The sad truth is that most people are still fighting yesterday’s war. The Republican vs. Democrat charade — good cop, bad cop nonsense — is a mere smokescreen. Don’t be confused by obsolete preconceptions and propaganda. There is one war being fought, The Global Economic Elite Vs. The People .
A global banking cartel has looted nation after nation, the world over, the United States is no exception. They’ve looted trillions from the US public and now they are trying to cut the throat of the public unions. While in the process of attacking private-sector workers and small businesses throughout the country, they are also cracking down on the last layer of worker protections within the public-sector.
The same economic central planners that have systematically exploited workers in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Australia and Asia, have exploited American workers as well. One-tenth of one percent of the population got luxurious life boats, while 99.9% of us are being left behind to drown in a sea of debt and social upheaval.
We are all on the same sinking ship – me, you, teachers, construction workers, fire fighters, police, Egyptians, Europeans. We are all under attack by the same people . The sooner you understand this, the better off we will be.
All of the global uprisings, against the global bankers, are popular reactions to the implementation of a worldwide Neo-Feudal economic order . People can dismiss and ignore me all they want, but I know what I’m talking about. In fact, I invite Ben Bernanke and Timothy Giethner to a debate. I’ll take them both on at the same time. I’ll expose the two imperial pawns within a minute, faster than Tyson knocked out Spinks .
The bottom line is this: It is imperative that 99.9% of the US population actively supports the public unions uprising against the occupying economic imperialists  who have conquered our country. If the economic imperialists think they’re going to continue their attacks, by cutting more American workers’ wages and benefits, after looting the nation of trillions, they are going to get a much deserved rude awakening. If they want to steal trillions, increase the price of food and oil, and make further cuts into our income, they are going to get crushed. 239 million Americans are currently living paycheck to paycheck. Push them another inch, and the global bankers might as well go hang with Gaddafi and Mubarak.
Seriously, think about this: They’re going to cut pensions on people who make $25k per year, while all-time record-breaking profits and bonuses are raining down on the economic top one-tenth of one percent. That is sick and twisted. Lloyd Blankfein gets five-times the annual salary of Wisconsin public employees when he simply gives a 30-minute speech on “doing God’s work.”
These banks were bailed out after causing this mess, the American people own them now as far as I’m concerned. Let’s stab the vampires in the heart. Seize their assets and all these budget problems disappear. Break these bloodsuckers up. Spin them off, free the market, free the people, free the planet from this global banking cabal.
We can easily let hard-working Americans keep their pensions and health benefits.
Do you want to start on the state and individual level, before breaking up the big rackets? Fine. Look at how easy it is to solve Wisconsin’s budget deficit, as Paul Jay stated on The Real News Network: [see video below]
“How about Wisconsin passes a law that takes the estate tax level back to 2001? And let’s say the first million’s tax free. The collective net worth of the esteemed group on the Forbes 400 from Wisconsin comes to around $21.7 billion. That would make Wisconsin’s share of their estates at the time of passing around $4 billion. We just paid down the debt.”
Look at that. Deficit eliminated.
As I wrote in The Economic Elite Vs. The People :
“When you take the time to research and analyze the wealth that has gone to the economic top one percent, you begin to realize just how much we have been robbed. Trillions upon trillions of dollars that could make the lives of all hard-working Americans much easier have been strategically funneled into the coffers of the Economic Elite. The denial of wealth is the key to the Economic Elite’s power. An entire generation of massive wealth creation has been strategically withheld from 99% of the US population.”
In a report entitled, “Nine Pictures of the Extreme Income/Wealth Gap,” Dave Johnson helps make the point:
“Many people don’t understand our country’s problem of concentration of income and wealth because they don’t see it. People just don’t understand how much wealth there is at the top now. The wealth at the top is so extreme that it is beyond most people’s ability to comprehend. If people understood just how concentrated wealth has become in our country and the effect it has on our politics, our democracy and our people, they would demand our politicians do something about it….
Top 1% owns more than 90% of us combined….
400 people have as much wealth as half of our population.”
In this context, every American should take it personally. They’ve already robbed 99.9% of us. Now they want to further limit our rights and income, with talks of QE3 already creeping up. Satan is overreaching. Survival instincts are going to kick in within the US just like they are throughout the rest of the world. They shall reap what they sow.
The Global Economic Elite better watch their assets, hell is about to freeze over. Say hello to your puppets Mubarak and Gaddafi on the way down.
As for your US puppet, one more statement of caution for the American people: Do not let Obama fool you, yet again, with his public statements in support of the people of Wisconsin. Obama is using the exact same playbook in Wisconsin that he used in Egypt, which is to publicly declare support for the people, while working behind the scenes to undermine them. Obama is a divide and conquer imperial puppet. Never forget that. Do not let his rhetoric confuse you. Just look at his chief of staff  and head economic adviser , a former JP Morgan executive and a NAFTA thug. It’s clear  whose side he is on.
As a great Anonymous poet wrote:
“Their divide and conquer strategies are old and feeble
The people begin to see through
chokes your oxygen
I becomes we
Down goes the
The global awakening is taking shape, from Cairo to Madison, the revolution has begun.
We’re fighting today’s war! And we have a whole lot of friends…
