School of Hard Knocks



Human drama naturally abounds, but is purposely made dark – far darker than it need be. But to focus on a solution, however, one would have to be ignorant of their purpose in this realm.


We are in a school of hard knocks to learn our lessons, not to change the curriculum. One such lesson is below. He Used a Whip!

In olden days whips, scourges, cat-o’-nine-tails, and rods were used to punish and exert control over animals and people through the great enforcer – pain.

Today, the corporate mainstream media’s political correctness doctrines carry the implied threat of pain compliance and punishment often enforced on our streets with tasers, tear gas, pepper spray, and a whole range of exotic electronic weaponry.

Political correctness is meant to mute a suppressed public, no matter what dirty inconceivable governmental crime we may detect. We are to be nice. No outrage. No anger. And above all, say nothing about any governmental crimes of which you become aware. And if you do squeal or grumble to your neighbor, there are Hate Crime Laws that can plant you in the big house for a long time.

But first, let us back up for a moment and begin anew by asking ourselves, Who owns the mainstream corporate media, who tells us how we are to think and act?

And of course, the answer is notoriously large, monstrously large corporations own the corporate media.

In 1985, fifty giant corporations owned the mainstream media. Today, six mega-giants control ninety percent of the media. These six behemoths are GE, News Corp, Disney, Viacom, Time Warner, and CBS.

But, who owns the controlling stock of these six megacorps, and commands their “news” and aired content?

The answer is the foreign and private International Monetary/Banking Cartel. You know, the mountebanks who issue the money and credit of the world on their computers.

Too much, too quickly?

Simply put, six monolithic corporations control most of what we see, read, or hear in the way of news. It is, however, but one syndicate that steers these mega-media giants – the foreign private International Monetary/Banking Cartel. This is probably all fairly obvious.

What might not be so transparent is that these private and foreign bankers use “our” taxpayer-paid CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) to direct their major media. One such example is Operation Mockingbird, which began in the 1950s.

mediaBetween the years of 1981 and 1987, while he was the Director of the CIA, William Casey made two telling remarks he thought were confidential.

The CIA owns everyone of any significance in the major media. We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false.

Our knee-jerk, tunnel-visioned Democratic and Republican voters must develop some peripheral political perception, or they will soon suffer with some serious lessons of life.
Important insights can more painlessly be learned by viewing outside the perimeters of the usual media propaganda.

Only future victims of dark deceptions would believe media deceit is unimportant or done for their own good.

Now, if one will study the long and infamous track record of this private Monetary Cartel, and correlate its activities with the corresponding “news” of the day, one will soon see the reciprocal relationship between that news and the subsequent national and international events.

You see, the corporate media does not so much report on news events, as it prepares the stage to justify the various actions then taken by the Cartel. You have seen this over and over again prior to each country we have destroyed, but perhaps without recognizing it.

The usual media drivel justifying the bombing of yet another country goes two ways: their leader is a tyrant, who is a danger to his own people and to the rest of the world.

Remember how the Cartel’s media told us what a beast Saddam Hussein was and how cruel he was to his people? Remember all the weapons of mass destruction he had according to Colin Powell, Dick Cheney, and little George Bush? These men swore to us that Hussein had these weapons and was about to use them. Iraq had no such mass weapons, so could not use them. We did, however, have such weapons of mass destruction and have been using them on country after country.

In our government’s twisted logic we had to bring democracy to Iraq by destroying their entire country, while killing or displacing millions of it citizens. And for good measure, we also made their country radioactive for over four billion years with our DU (Depleting Uranium) weapons, with no known way to clean it up.

Prior to Iraq, we did the same thing in the Balkans. And we furnished Israel the DU weaponry to do it in Lebanon and Gaza. Then, we leveled Libya with DU, after hearing the usual tirade of what a monster Muammar Gaddafi was. It seems anything, no manner how outrageous, is possible when a group of psychopaths are allowed by governments to print all the money they want.

It would behoove one to learn more about this monolithic syndicate – the International Monetary/Banking Cartel. How they came to own their corporate media and control their fascistic/socialist police governments down through much of recorded history would fill volumes of books.

Our once great nation struggled as a mere thirteen colonies under the British coin of the realm, that is, until the colonists issued their own currency, which they proudly called Colonial Script.

This helped the Colonies to enjoy an envious prosperity until the European Banking Cartel, under the direction of the Rothschild clan, demanded that England’s King George III outlaw the Colonies from printing their own money, and that he make them return to the currency of the Bank of England, which was, of course, owned by the International Banking Cartel.

Almost immediately, the American Colonies fell into an economic decline so severe that Benjamin Franklin wrote,

In one year, the conditions were so reversed that the era of prosperity ended, and a depression set in, to such an extent that the streets of the Colonies were filled with unemployed.

King George’s prohibition on the Colonies printing their own money was the main reason the Colonies revolted. Franklin wrote in his autobiography …

The Colonies would have gladly borne the little tax on tea and other matters had it not been that England took away from the Colonies their money, which created unemployment and dissatisfaction. The inability to issue their own money permanently out of the hands of King George III and the international bankers was the prime reason for the Revolutionary War.

The Horsemen of the Apocalypse came early to our newly formed country, fronted by Lt. Col. Alexander Hamilton, who had served his country well as General George Washington’s aid-de-camp during our great Revolutionary War. But once Hamilton was appointed by President Washington to be our first Secretary of the Treasury, Alexander turned traitor.

Hamilton formed a political party that came to be known as the Federalists. They were a group who wanted to abnegate the young nation’s financial needs and responsibilities to the same European bankers who had caused their earlier depression.

The Federalists were opposed by the more responsible founding fathers (those of the Democratic Republican political party) who were led by Thomas Jefferson.

Unfortunately, the Federalists held sway, and the First Bank of the United States, owned and controlled by the International Banking Cartel, was formed in 1791.speer

After such a defeat for our country, Thomas Jefferson (who believed the US government, itself, should issue its own currency and credit, thereby not incurring large national debts with usury interest rates and inflation) wrote,

I believe banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. They have set up a money aristocracy that has set the government at defiance. They should take the power of issuing money from the bankers and restore it to Congress and the people to who it properly belongs.

Before he died, Jefferson lamented,

I wish it were possible to obtain a single amendment to our Constitution – taking from the federal government their power of borrowing.

Our fourth president, James Madison wrote,

History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling money and its issuance.

Andrew Jackson, our seventh president, vetoed the bill from Congress that would have extended the charter of the Cartel’s Bank of the United States, and gave his reasons why:

  • It concentrated an excessive amount of the nation’s financial strength in a single institution;
  • It exposed the government to control by foreign interests;
  • It served mainly to make the rich richer;
  • It exercised too much control over the members of Congress.
  • It favored northeast states over southern and western states.

Additionally, President Jackson wrote,

The bold effort the present bank has made to control the government, the distresses it has wantonly produced … are but premonitions of the fate which awaits the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution or the establishment of another like it.

In an angrier tone, Jackson said to the bankers, mincing no words,

You are a den of vipers and thieves. I intend to rout you out, and by the eternal God, I will rout you out.

Find Your Job at HireVeteran.comJackson’s administration was the first and only in US history to have eliminated our national debt by routing out the vipers of the International Banking Cartel, thus avoiding the distresses of deflations and the horrors of hyper-inflation that invariably follow the borrowing of money from the Banking Cartel.

At least two attempts were made upon the life of President Jackson, as were made on three other of our presidents who tried to take back the control of our money and credit from the Banking Cartel: Lincoln, Garfield, and Kennedy.

President Abe Lincoln and his Treasury Secretary Salmon Portland Chase were both outraged by what they estimated the Banking Cartel would charge American citizens in interest on loans to pursue the Civil War. As a result Lincoln by-passed the Cartel by convincing the US Congress to enact legislation authorizing the printing of dollars that carried the full legal tender of US Treasury notes, which came to be called “Greenbacks.”

The European Banking Cartel was not pleased with Lincoln’s Greenbacks, and said so in their flagship newspaper of that era, The London Times:

If this mischievous financial policy should become endurated down to a fixture, then that government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off its debts and be without debts. It will have all the money necessary to carry on its commerce. It will become prosperous beyond precedent in the history of the world. The brains and wealth of all countries will go to America. That government must be destroyed or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe.

Destroy every monarchy on the globe? No! Nevertheless, Lincoln could have severely damaged the International Banking Cartel, had he lived. But on Good Friday, April 14, 1865, his administration ended prematurely when he was fatally shot in Washington’s Ford Theatre while watching the British play Our American Cousin.

Shortly after becoming our 20th president, James Garfield said,

Whoever controls the volume of money in any country is absolute master of all industry and commerce. And when you realize that the entire system is very easily controlled, one way or another, by a few powerful men at the top, you will not have to be told how periods of inflation and depression originate.

On July 2, 1881, a few weeks after President Garfield made the above statement, he too was assassinated.

In June of 1963, President John F. Kennedy signed Executive Order (EO) 11110, which would have divested the Cartel’s central bank in America, the Federal Reserve System, of its power in the United States, had President Kennedy lived to implement his EO.

But, on the 22nd of November 1963, scarcely six months after Kennedy had signed the most momentous document since Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation of January 1, 1863, President Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas.

As commanded to do, the major media of the world virtually ignored Kennedy’s EO 11110, which should have been the most earth-shaking news to have erupted from the United States since Andrew Jackson vetoed the renewal charter of the Second Bank of the United States.

And of course, EO 11110 was rendered null and void by the Cartel’s next president, the  traitor, Lyndon Baines Johnson.

Throughout the 1970s, and part of the 1980s, Georgia Republican Congressman Dr. Larry P. MacDonald worked tirelessly to expose the hidden holdings, wide influence, and dark intentions of the Banking Cartel.

But on the 31st of August 1983, Dr. Larry MacDonald’s good work came to a fiery end: The Korean Airlines 007, carrying Dr. MacDonald, was shot down over Russian airspace.

Did Jesus give us a blanket condemnation of all monopoly money-changers?

Creating a whip from cords, Jesus, in his only recorded incidence of violence, drove the money-changers out of the Temple of Jerusalem; it was a moment of wonderful spiritual enlightenment, described in all four gospels.

The Temple of Jerusalem was used for animal sacrifices and as a collection plate, where Jewish people were encouraged to bring in their “sin offerings.” Even then, like today, organized religion was perverted and debased with extortion, money, blood, and slaughter.

Do you see a resemblance between the money-changers of Biblical times and those of today?

Did Jesus tell us to shine the light of truth and justice on all secret priesthoods and hierarchies of corruption?

Please pray for the lives of the courageous Americans who are currently fighting the Banking Cartel and standing up for all of us and the real American way of life.

We are their prey. All of us, from the left and right. These cretins are the truly blind leading the blinded. But if a majority of Americans, no matter where they reside on the political spectrum, joined hands and hearts against the alien Monetary/Banking Cartel, we could take back our country.

In time, networks of awareness could become networks of resistance. Then we could truly join together and restore the American Dream, and again make the United States of America the best example of a sovereign nation the world has ever seen. It will take courage, but perhaps courage is the first virtue.

The wicked will flee when none pursue if enough of us know the truth about their evil designs.

Former Hollywood producer of live stage shows that featured various movie and TV stars. In Los Angeles for almost a quarter of a century, Jack had a front-row seat in observing the disintegration of the foundations of American society before he retreated to the woods of New Hampshire. A graduate of the University of Florida, where he studied economics, Jack was also a running back on the Gator scout team, a member of the ATO social fraternity, Cadet Commander of the school's ROTC unit, and president of the military honorary society, Scabbard, and Blade. After serving honorably in the US Army, where Jack earned his paratrooper wings, he began to see the folly and crimes attendant to the unilateral wars of American aggression. It was then that Jack embarked on a spiritual path; one he has walked for over 40 years. Content with his sylvan seclusion, Jack began writing of how to spot media propaganda; something he meant to be his legacy to his three grown children. Today, however, Jack invites all others to read his non-partisan observations of national and international events. According to Jack... Those of us stuck deeply into the engineered left-right paradigm have no desire to be objective, and are thus blinded to all truth that does not reinforce biased opinions. Remedial work in geo-politics will not open the minds of such people, as they are badly in need of spiritual remedies; nevertheless, facts are facts, and some are available to truth-seekers, the subject matter of my writings."
