A Meditation on Our Monetary System: State of Permanent Siege
By Richard Cook
Global Research, April 22, 2009
THE LEVEL OF PUBLIC IGNORANCE on the topic of the U.S. and world
monetary system is astonishing. This is part of the plan, of course,
because the monetary elite control not only the financial system but
also the news media, the publishing industry, and the educational
system. The blueprint for control was put together over a century ago
by Cecil Rhodes and his friends, including British financier Nathan
Rothschild, as documented by Professor Carroll Quigley.
During the 20th Century the power shifted to the U.S., with the
Rockefellers playing the dominant role as they continue to do today.
It is no accident that J.P. Morgan Chase, the Rockefeller family bank,
dominates the U.S. derivatives market; nor that Exxon-Mobil, the
Rockefellers oil company, is the most profitable corporation in
The basic plan was to place all of mankind in a state of permanent
mental and emotional siege so that in the end we would trade all our
liberties to the controllers in return for protection; even freedom of
thought would be traded for physical safety. That plan is well
advanced. The sheeple have been prepared for the final shearing.
Meanwhile, every attempt at real reform has been strangled in the
cradle. Past voices for monetary sanity like those of Congressmen
Louis McFadden and Jerry Voorhis were silenced. Starting in the 1970s,
functionaries like Kissinger, Brzezinski, and Volcker carried out
David Rockefellers plan to outsource manufacturing to China and
eliminate the U.S. as the worlds greatest industrial democracy,
replacing it with a financier oligarchy.
Barack Obama obviously works mainly for the financiers, as did Bill
Clinton before him. The job of the Democrats is to keep the sheeple
quiet by now and then implementing some reforms; the Republicans
were a more blatant gang of looters.
During the 2008 election campaign, Ron Paul called for the end of the
Federal Reserve, the bastion of financier control, but no one
effectively organized the millions of people who responded to his call
or had a viable plan to put in place. Barack Obama obviously works
mainly for the financiers, as did Bill Clinton before him. The job of
the Democrats is to keep the sheeple quiet by now and then
implementing some reforms; the Republicans were a more blatant gang
With the financial crash of 2008-2009, the noose is tightening
everywhere in the world. The International Monetary Fund is
announcing, The current global recession is likely to be unusually
long and severe, and the recovery sluggish. (BBC News, IMF Sees
Long and Severe Slowdown, April 16, 2009.) In reality, as the IMF
knows, it would be possible to put every nation in the world on the
road to recovery by allowing them to prime the economic pump through
sovereign control of their own monetary systems, with freedom to
utilize their own natural resources.
The IMF announcement is in fact the start of a worldwide program of
genocide similar to what was done to Russia in the 1990s, with
crushing poverty, slashing of incomes, reduction of benefits for the
poor and elderly, rising levels of disease and malnutrition, and
reduction of life expectancy. We in the West will view the carnage
with alarm from our own stripped-down economies but remain docile out
of fear the same will be done to us.
Awareness of the hideous evil of the financiers plans to destroy the
soul of humanity is growing. This is being accomplished through the
internet and the work of a number of writers who understand what is at
stake. I doubt this channel of expression will be available
indefinitely. Already alternative websites are being isolated and
marginalized. But the fight must be waged.
The one organization that has a program which is comprehensive and
free from outside influence is the American Monetary Institute, which
has drafted the American Monetary Act. If the Act is introduced in
Congress, it will be imperative for it to be recognized and supported
as the one chance to save our nation from the dark night that is
threatening. But even progressive writers shrink from taking on the
Monetary Power, with many of them putting forth the absurdity that all
we need to do is reform the banking system.
The American Monetary Act has been in process since 2003. It may be
found on the AMI website at: http://www.monetary.org/amacolorpamphlet.pdf
. AMI will conduct a presentation on the Act on Capitol Hill, April
23, 2009, in Room 304 of the Cannon House Office Building.
Presentations will take place at 10:00 AM and at 2:00 PM.
At the same time, groups of relatively conscious people can come
together on their own to create refuges of sanity until the danger
passesover a period of years, decades, or even generations. And, to
look at it from a spiritual perspective, we can hope that the Higher
Powers who observe humanitys destiny refuse to allow our particular
experiment in consciousness to be obliterated.
Destruction of human consciousness is the real goal of the financiers
and their minions. It is lies above all that do this. The financiers
power is the biggest lie of all. Richard C. Cook is a retired federal analyst who writes today on

*The phrase permanent siege is from Thomas Pynchons novel Against
the Day. Set at the end of the 19th Century, the novel describes the
dynamics and strategy of the future totalitarian regimes of the
approaching 20th centuryi.e., a state of permanent siege.
