A couple weeks ago I watched a congressional hearing that centered around John Stumpf, pictured above, the newly former CEO and Chairman of Wells Fargo Bank. With so much attention directed toward
the Hillary / Donald Show, there’s precious little time to really process what the bank’s actions and policies, under Stumpf’s “leadership,” really say about our society and values.
There is reason for concern, particularly when you consider that Hillary Clinton, the erstwhile “front runner” (not mine) in the presidential campaign race, is very much “pro” banking. The sheer egregiousness of the act pales against the long list of issues that are being ignored, excused, marginalized, and/or refused to comment on with regard to Mrs. Clinton, so it’s not hard to see how Stumpf can be quietly and quickly eased out of the limelight.
Although 5,300 Wells Fargo employees were fired for their role in these fraudulent “cross selling” practices, Mr. Stumpf was not. His resignation was accepted by the board. According to an article published on bloomberg.com, Stumpf has been paid over $250 million in salary, cash bonuses, and stock options since 2000. As gross evidence of the kind of blindness that sets in when money is one’s “God,” neither Stumpf, his successor, nor the bank’s Board of Directors, seems to see that there was anything wrong with what was done, outside of getting caught.
This same blindness afflicts both presidential candidates, and many others throughout all sectors of our society. Solutions to major problems languish and fester for lack of awareness, little more than lipservice, and the disinclination to relinquish the gravy train that the problem created for a few beneficiaries. We have blinded ourselves to skulduggery in the political, scientific, education, health, medical, military, media, and law enforcement sectors that have left people wondering which end was up.
Did you see the recent revelations about connections between Hillary Clinton and FBI director, James Comey, who recommended against prosecuting her for how she mishandled sensitive information by maintaining a private server that she said was “a mistake” and “for convenience?” There was also a connection with U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
It is amazing that only 30,000 people have watched the video above. It’s not amazing that Hillary Clinton might feel pretty confident that all intelligence and common sense will be set aside and she’ll be assured a coronation as president of the United States of America.
It would be a dark day for the world.
What part of Donald Trump’s “wall” will protect Americans from this crew?
Here is another report that documents the relationships between Comey, Lynch, Clinton, et. al. Be sure to watch Part II.
This too is not all about Hillary Clinton. It is about a system that the position of POTUS, presently occupied by Barack Obama, is but a cog. The individual holding the position influences, but does not dictate policies or initiatives. That happens in such circles as the Council on Foreign Relations, the Bilderberg Group, and others. The “campaign” of the individual office holders indicate the relative ease by which corporate and globalist agendas can be carried out, perpetuated, or intensified.
The present agenda calls for an intensification of the apparent threat of war. ISIS/ISIL, Syria, and now major tough talk being directed toward Russia, adds more irony in 2016, to Mr. Obama receiving the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009, his first year in office. Nice gesture, but it made no sense. The saber rattling toward Russia makes no sense either, except perhaps that everyone remains silent on what was done with $6.5 trillion that is unaccounted for by the Federal Government in general, and the military in particular, in the past year.
On second thought, the saber rattling and threats of World War III against Russia does make sense, when you consider who is running America. Vladamir Putin recently decided to nationalize the Rothschild owned Central Bank of Russia.
Other leaders who have paid a high price for messing with bank orthodoxy include:
- Muammar al-Gaddafi ~ Had plans to establish a gold-backed currency. (See article.)
- Saddam Hussein ~ The main information channels say that the hunted and murdered president of Iraq stole $1 billion from the Central Bank (before it was Rothchild controlled), but here’s another version.
- John F. Kennedy ~ Signed Executive Order 11110 (June 4, 1963) that gave the U.S. government authority to put the Federal Reserve out of business. Five months later, you know what happened November 22 of the same year. (See article.)
- Congressman Larry P. McDonald (D. Georgia) ~ Died in Korean Airlines (KAL 007) September 1, 1983. This conservative democrat who intended to run for president in 1988 (against George H.W. Bush), called for a congressional investigation of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and the Trilateral Commission.
- Senator John Heinz (R. Pennsylvania) ~ Served on the Senate banking and finance committees, and was an outspoken critic of the Federal Reserve. Killed in a mid-air plane collision on April 4, 1991.
- Senator John Tower (R. Texas) ~ Also a critic of the Federal Reserve, he led the Tower Commission into criminal activities and dirty dealings by the CIA (led by George H.W. Bush at the time), killed in a plane crash April 5, 1991.
- James A. Garfield ~ Openly declared that whoever controls the supply of currency, controls the business and activities of all the people. Shot dead at a railroad station July 2, 1881, after only four months in office.
- Abraham Lincoln ~ His opposition to the usurious interest rates charged by bankers during the Civil War is rarely mentioned in the history books, but this quote from Abraham Lincoln is sadly prophetic today.
“The money power preys upon the nation in time of peace and conspires against it in times of adversity. It is more despotic than monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, more selfish than bureaucracy. I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me, and causes me to tremble for the safety of our country. Corporations have been enthroned, an era of corruption will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people, until the wealth is aggregated in a few hands, and the republic is destroyed.”
Many more who have paid what appears to be the ultimate price to end what is essentially an anathema to the tenants and principles that are purported to Make America Great.
You can fool all of the people some of the time
You can fool some of the people all of the time
But you can’t fool all of the people all of the time.
Abraham Lincoln, 1864
The decade of 1963 to 1973 in the United State of America
will go down in history for many things. In the long run
it will be known through the world as the period which
demonstrated that it is possible to fool most of the
people all of the time.

A Trip to Death Valley
Last week we drove to the Death Valley National Park, fulfilling an urge that has burned within me for over 30 years.
It’s a VERY big place, 5,720 square miles in area.
Witnessed some amazing cloud formations after sunset.
We stayed overnight at a campground at Stovepipe Wells. Before going dormant for the night, I recorded this video.
And photographed the moonset.
Then left before sunrise to get to my intended destination, which was a good forty miles north.
This is a place that I visited over 30 years ago, but was only able to stay for a few minutes, and wanted to return to.
I could not have possibly imagined why the urge would be so great at that time, although awesomeness and beauty are their own reason.
Tonight is the third and final “debate”, to be held here in Las Vegas. For many reasons, neither candidate is qualified or prepared to lead us anywhere love abiding people want to go. I’m referring to peace, prosperity, health, harmony, truth, honor, respect, safety at home and abroad, and community while we fix infrastructure, grow nourishing foods, neutralize radiation, heal our toxic water at home while helping others do it abroad.
The spirits of peoples of other nations should rise when they see an American coming, not with a gun, but with a smile. Not because we are easy marks, but because we helped them to discover and then hone, their own greatness, which they applied to beautify their earthly home.
There are ways to do all these things, but neither candidate can tell you how, because these matters are not part of either agenda.
