ALL IN THE FAMILY III

CLICK HERE LARGE PRINT EDITION: ALL IN THE FAMILY III « Culture of Life News 2

A huge percentage of the US media is mostly owned, run and often written by members of the Jewish community.  The Madoff affair has exposed this community to a lot of obvious scrutiny and it is equally obvious that the community wants to end this scrutiny.  In Israel, where the Jewish community can chat with each other openly, they are worried that the world might notice the wealth accumulated in this story and how it was abused and are worried about anti-semitism growing.  

So the selection of Ms. Schapiro, who is one of the ‘family’ is greeted with relief and joy in the Jewish financial community.  She will not expose them to any more scrutiny and they collectively hope they can find some way to bury the mess they made with interlayered swindles and wretched, obvious schemes and scams.  First, here is an email I got that is very much related to all this.  I deleted some of the personal business in it to protect the writer, who is Jewish:

Hi Elaine,

So I get a call early this morning from my dad, waking me up from a deep sleep.

“Do you know who Mary Schapiro is?” he asks me

“Yeah. Of course I know who she is. What about her?”

“Obama has picked her to run the SEC.”

“Oh shit! Mary Schapiro! She’s going to head the SEC? He couldn’t have found a person more corrupt than her! Oh no!”

My voice still sounded groggy and my father said he’d call later, apologizing for waking me up. But this news left me wide awake. No, going back to sleep wasn’t an option for me.

Mary Schapiro was in the background of the Dispute Resolution forum from the time I started in 1998. She had recently left the SEC to head up NASD’s Regulatory Division. At the time Schapiro took over, Deborah Massuci had been the Director of Arbitration for NASD Dispute Resolution for about 18 years. She had fully expected to become the President of Dispute Resolution but it didn’t happen that way.

Schapiro instead named Linda D. Fienberg, a colleague from the SEC, as President of DR. Fienberg forced Massuci out. When I came to temp for them in April 1998, there was no Director of Arbitration. Massuci was gone and nobody had been named. In December 1998, after I had already been hired full-time, George Friedman was hired as Director. He had previously been in charge of the American Arbitration Association. I came in at just about the same time the old-guard of NASD Regulation was being replaced by an all Zionist new-guard.

(An aside – a leftover of the old-guard was Executive Assistant, Eleanor LoBianco Benrubi. Eleanor was a sex goddess well past her prime who was forever cursed/blessed to look in the mirror and see a 20-year-old beauty. Eleanor was a close personal friend of many infamous mobsters and was very indiscrete about these associations. I personally had a “six-degrees of separation” type connection to infamous mobster, John Gotti, when my father advised his terrified then-friend Romual Piecyk, to save his life against constant threats – including tampering with his brakes – by urging him to state under oath that he could not identify Gotti as the man who roughed him and stole money from him in a parking dispute. This story would go down in history as one of the incidents that made John Gotti Teh Totally Awesome Mafia Don! and a legend among thugs. Living in Mafia cities like NY and NJ, we’re all connected to them in some way. Some little boys get to dress up and play real-life gangster as they pull their triggers for them; some play the roles of their hanger-ons who grovel at their feet while basking in their reflected glory; and others, those of us at the lowest level, cower before them in terror and swear our eternal silence in return for allowing us to keep our little lives.)

I should make clear that I didn’t work directly for Mary Schapiro. I did a lot of work for Fienberg who is one of Schapiro’s direct subordinates. I could tell you some things about Fienberg – she was a mean-spirited, senile old coot. She was famous for nodding out during important industry meetings – she would even snore loudly until she was poked awake!
*snip*
All I really know about Mary Schapiro is that the organization became even more corrupt during her tenure at the top. She forced through an unpopular consolidation with the NYSE. The small firms were very opposed to the merger and they kept trying to sue to stop it from happening, but the courts would throw out their cases. I also noticed that when she took over, the entire New York Human Resources Department got replaced with new super-corrupt HR department that was committed to crushing employee rights and thwarting those pesky labor laws at every turn.

I also think she strengthened the hand of the Office of the Ombudsman. After she took over, employees were always being steered to bring their complaints to them. Since either 2005 or 2006, ten DR employees, including me, followed this advice. One, a manager who worked for Dispute Resolution for over 25 years, took a demotion and was transferred to another department. Another one is currently recovering from a work-related disability and is on Workman’s Compensation (they wanted to fire her, but she’s too clever in her knowledge of the law, so they just told the other employees to never speak with her because she was a “troublemaker”). The rest of us were fired or forced to quit. I’m aware that two young woman in low-level administrative positions who had been with the organization for many years, filed a complaint with the Ombudsman and immediately had their timesheets pored over by DR management, going back for years, until they could find a discrepancy in their time reporting that would warrant their firings. The Office of the Ombudsman was FINRA’s version of the roach motel – roaches (a/k/a “employees”) checked in but we never checked out.

Mary Schapiro ran the joint like a dime store version of Stalin. All troublemakers would be dealt with. All traitors purged. The HR Department would find ways around the law and the Office of the Ombudsman would pretend to be a sympathetic ear while sending the little lambs off to their slaughter at the hands of their enraged supervisors. And Obama is appointing her to run the SEC? Now that’s change you CAN’T believe in!

The likely reason Gary Weiss saw fit to start his expose, Wall Street Versus America, with a story about an arbitration administered by the then NASD’s Dispute Resolution forum is because even by the corrupt standards of securities regulation, they are special. They are so brazen in their corruption, I suspect Mr. Weiss thought their wacky antics would be a good way to suck people into a story about the fixed game of regulation. Almost nobody talks about them, this is because securities arbitration isn’t a sexy topic. This serves them well, because as long as they stay out of the news, the only people who become painfully aware of their existence are the poor suckers who are robbed blind by their stock brokers and realize that they unwittingly signed away their Constitutional right to a court trial when they started their securities account. Mary Schapiro was behind this shadowy kangaroo court for years, and the thought of her being rewarded as the new top cop of the SEC should send chills down the spine of any American who still believes the Constitution is worth a damn!

In light of this depressing turn of events, I feel a renewed commitment to finding a way to be at least a tiny thorn in their side. FINRA is worth looking at more carefully, and I believe I can be helpful, even if it’s in a small way, because I know who they are – they were my “family” (the the Mafia sense of the word) for over ten years. And nobody understands the ways of the wicked better than family does.

Certainly, not all Jewish people are elated with this criminal business.  Painting the entire community with a broad brush is racism.  The Jewish people worked hard for civil rights in America.  I warned them all, back when I was Mrs. Levy, that they should also have the Bill of Rights and civil rights in Palestine.  And if they didn’t do this, they would lose their own civil rights, here in America, some hideous day.  The level of dissension in the Jewish community in Israel is much stronger than here, by the way. There are many brave Jewish activists who risk life and limb to expose the crimes against the Palestinian people.

 

I call upon the Jewish community to fight the Mafia-type criminals, the smooth con artists who use the Jewish community as a castle out of which they operate.  Just like the Italian community used to protect the Mafia with group silence whenever the authorities would try to figure out, what was going on.  This is bad!  So of course, the important story below doesn’t show up in America:

 
New SEC chief gave Bernard Madoff’s son a job – Times Online

Mary Schapiro, Barack Obama’s choice to lead the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), previously appointed one of Bernard Madoff’s sons to a regulatory body that oversees American securities firms.

It has emerged that in 2001, Ms Schapiro, currently chief executive of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (Finra), employed Mark Madoff to serve on the board of the National Adjudicatory Council — the division that reviews disciplinary decisions made by Finra.

She knew this when Obama was told by his handler, Rahm Emanuel, to install her in this important office.  The President isn’t even in office and his Jewish advisors are all increasingly involved in scandals.  Since they are all members of what I call ‘The Jewish Mafia’, they are all complicit in joint criminal actions.  Here is a shining example:

 

Report: Emanuel Spoke Directly With Blagojevich About Senate Seat – FOXNews.com Transition Tracker

Rahm Emanuel, President-elect Obama’s chief of staff, had direct discussions with Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich about Obama’s vacant Senate seat, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

Sources with knowledge of the conversations told the Sun- Times Emanuel spoke with the governor and pushed for the appointment of Valerie Jarrett in the days after the presidential election and asked that it be done by a certain date.

Just as Schapiro should have told Obama that she was entangled deep inside the web of the Madoff community, so Emanuel should have resigned when he got his own dick caught in the gears in Illinois.  Like Caesar’s wife, he has to be ‘virtuous’.  I greatly dislike this guy because he is a double agent and an AIPAC tool as well as an Israeli-Firster so I want him out of power.

 

He is probably the one who advised Obama to pick this compromised female tool.  Now, he is destroying Obama before he even gets a chance to walk into the front door of the White House.  Shame on him.  And not only him!   Here is Bloomberg News talking about Schapiro:

 

Schapiro Taking Over SEC’s Reins Shows Broker Regulator Dodged Cox Critics

 

 (Bloomberg) — Mary Schapiro has escaped the criticism that followed U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Christopher Cox as subprime mortgage securities brought down investment banks and Bernard Madoffwas charged with a $50 billion fraud buffeting investors around the world.

The 53-year-old head of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, who was nominated yesterday by President-electBarack Obama to succeed Cox, earned a reputation for political independence during almost three decades in public service, David Martin, co-head of the corporate and securities practice at Washington-based Covington & Burling, said in an interview.

“You don’t survive in Washington for that many years by being colorful,” he said. “She is quite independent. She doesn’t bring much of any agenda other than sensible regulation.”

Schapiro, who joined the Commodity Futures Trading Commission after graduating from George Washington University Law School, will “crack down on the culture of greed and scheming” on Wall Street, Obama said announcing her nomination at a press conference in Chicago.

All immigrant groups should know that circling the wagons and protecting each other while committing crimes is not a very good idea.  Especially Jewish immigrants.  They know that there is the flaming danger of anti-semitism flaring up in other religious communities.  So protecting criminals within their own community is suicidal.  Bloomberg News is NOT carrying the explosive London Times story.

 

Bloomberg.com: News:

Schapiro Can’t Channel ‘Romper Room’ to Fix SEC: Susan Antilla

The U.S. president-elect said it all during a press conference yesterday announcing his choice to run the Securities and Exchange Commission:

The American public is frustrated that “there’s not a lot of adult supervision out there” when it comes to things political or financial.

Barack Obama is betting that Mary L. Schapiro, chief executive officer of theFinancial Industry Regulatory Authority, is the right grownup to ride herd on an often-noncompliant Wall Street crowd.

As any haggard parent of a teenager can tell you — I’ve been one, so I know — whipping rule-breakers into shape is often best done by dictatorship, not democracy. The parent who seeks out the kids’ views when empty beer bottles are rolling around on the basement floor is the parent destined for a rap session at the local police station.

Wall Street’s beer bottles have been piling up in the basement so long that you can’t see out the windows. Yet we continue to consult with financial industry powers-that-be to get their thoughts about how the rules should work.

Schapiro, 53, has had a lifetime of experience in the financial industry’s version of the family rap session, better known as self-regulation. She was chairman of the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission, and president, then vice chairman, of NASD Regulation, a predecessor to Finra.

 

Schapiro is one of the ‘romper room’ kiddies!  She is the mom that gets drunk and then lets the children run amok. Note that Bloomberg is touting her, not tearing her down.  Reporters should be examining this woman closely, not making up stories praising her!  So I am immensely relieved that Bloomberg is examining her more closely.  

 

Madoff funds may have been used to evade taxes – Haaretz – Israel News

Hundreds of Israelis who invested their money in the funds managed by Bernard Madoff and won’t have nice returns to look forward to anymore, may soon be required to report to the Israel Tax Authority on where they got their money from. 

The trustee appointed by the court in New York to protect the investors’ money, Irving Picard, will likely reveal the complete list of investors in Madoff’s funds, as well as the amounts they put in over the years, and the Israeli taxman may take a serious interest in the information. 

A number of quite worried clients have shown up at the doors of the best-known Israeli law firms specializing in tax law in the past few days asking for an urgent consultation. The fears that Picard will reveal the names and amounts, or be forced to reveal them as the result of a lawsuit, has caused the large number of requests. 

“Already at this stage it is possible to say that large sums of money reached Madoff’s funds from Swiss banks and various tax havens,” said Dr. Avi Nov, a lawyer specializing in tax planning. “Usually the money there is not money that the owners are interested in reporting to the authorities. 

“Here there was an excellent linkup of sophisticated investors who knew how to avoid paying taxes in Israel, and funds specializing in hiding their true purposes. Private investors in Israel always spoke about Madoff’s returns. European banks recommended investing with him and when they heard the success stories, they asked to increase their investment,” said Nov. 

Even if the investors get back only a small part of their money from Madoff, the original sums and all profits still are taxable income, said attorney Jack Balanga. 

Bloomberg hasn’t covered this story, either.  As I note all the time, the Jewish community in Israel openly talk about things they hide, here.  This is why I read the Jerusalem Post or Haaretz, for example.  The tax cheating going on here is EPIDEMIC.  And a lot of it passes through those Queen Elizabethan pirate coves.  There is little to no call for shutting down these criminal island operations.

 

Yet they lie at the heart of the matter.  Throughout history, Jewish financiers make inside deals with sovereigns whereby both get richer, playing these sorts of games.  When things crash, the sovereign feeds the Jews to the enraged mobs who tear them apart.  While the sovereign walks free.  I would think, the Jewish community would learn that this game is very stupid and even suicidal.  But the guys who do this seem unable to learn the lesson.

 

Instead, they claim this is due to anti-semitism.  Self-examination is eliminated.  Former follies are repeated. Here is yet another story Bloomberg news is ignoring:

 

The Associated Press: AG takes himself out of Madoff fraud probe

 (AP) — The fraud investigation of Wall Street money manager Bernard L. Madoff took unusual twists Wednesday as the U.S. attorney general removed himself from the criminal probe and the Securities and Exchange Commission looked into the relationship between Madoff’s niece and a former SEC attorney who reviewed Madoff’s business.

The developments reflect growing criticism that Wall Street and regulators in Washington have grown too close. Madoff himself has boasted of his ties to the SEC.

The question of Madoff’s connection to regulators goes to the heart of the investigation of the alleged $50 billion fraud, SEC Chairman Christopher Cox told reporters.

 

Now, our AG, Zionist torturer, Mukasey, is entangled!  He should be ARRESTED.  His violations of our great Constitution is more than enough reason to send him to the Hague to be tried for war crimes.  He fainted recently while vigorously defending his unconstitutional activities.  Yet, this clown is still in office.  He is obviously falling apart.  But like all the others, he is now very desperate to cling to power so he can control who is not punished by this unfolding, gigantic scandal.

 

Enron, by the way, was a Texan Christian mess.  Bush tossed his best friends to the wolves and even denied KNOWING them.  The media didn’t go after Bush for this obvious lie just like the media, owned by mostly Jewish financiers, didn’t go after Bush about a host of lies, deceptions and criminal actions and still  protects him from his criminal actions…note how the DNC leaders refuse to prosecute him for war crimes as well as money crimes!

 

Indeed, Pelosi and her gang have viciously rebuffed Democrats calling for investigations and trials!  And this is because she is a criminal, too.  At Daily Kos, the people there bemoan all of this and are told to raise more money and run more Democrats and thus, all will be well.  This is patently false!  But I suppose, the honest, good people who gather there will finally, in the bitter end, figure out, they have been conned.

 

Back to the pirate islands and why we must arrest the Queen of England:

 

The Raw Story | Goldman Sachs cuts taxes to one percent by moving profits offshore

Bank takes $10 billion bailout, then cuts tax rate 33 percent

Say you got a ten billion dollar loan to shore up your finances, and you paid your employees $10.9 billion, and you raked in $2.3 billion for the year.

What would you say you owed in taxes? One percent?

That’s what you’d pay if you were Goldman Sachs, Inc. The high-flying brokerage — and former home of Bush Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson — has announced it’s paying just $14 million in taxes this year.

Last year, their tax bill was $6 billion, or 34.1 percent. That represents a year-over-year drop of 33.1 percent.

Goldman attributed its lower tax rate to “more tax credits as a percentage of earnings” and “changes in geographic earnings mix.”

Why did the US government sit idle for 20 years while one pirate cove after another opened its maw and sucked down all our tax revenues?  I have been screaming about this for YEARS!!!!  It is totally insane!  And how insane is it, to have in charge of our Treasury, one of these pirates????  Paulson should be arrested and charged with TREASON.  And indeed, all the people responsible for preventing tax evasion, violations of the Constitution, all those involved in torture, theft, double agents for Israel and Saudi Arabia…more about THAT matter later today as I write the scorching analysis of corrupt Clinton!—we have a lot of people to arrest, don’t we?

 

Why I Hate Bernie Madoff – BusinessWeek

 But Madoff, the allegedly rogue investor who managed to pilfer some $50 billion of investor’s cash, destroyed the trust of so many.

Sure, you’ve read about those boldfaced names who hired Madoff to run their investments. But there are plenty of regular people who had money with him, too, including a member of my extended family in Philadelphia. He is a father of three who left his native South Africa more than three decades ago with nothing and brought his family to the U.S. for a better life. He poured everything into his career and his family. His $1 million investment with Madoff-part of his retirement savings-is probably gone forever.

And then there is the New York lawyer who had three-quarters of his net worth tied up with Madoff. (“He invested with Madoff because his father invested with Madoff. That’s what you are supposed to do in his family,” a friend confided in me.) On Sunday the attorney took his young children to see Santa Claus in Westchester. I can only imagine what was going through his head as he watched his children on Santa’s knee, sharing their own hopes and dreams. We all know what happens to a dream deferred…

Businessweek, of course, won’t probe what is going on, obviously.  Any more than Bloomberg will.  Immigrants from South Africa [who were probably whites fleeing it] can come to our great nation and become millionaires.  This intricate folds of the Madoff scam depended on immigrants, in particular.  Trusting ‘their own’, of course.  

 

Instead of examining this honestly, it is the untold story, except in Israel, of course.  Madoff was Santa Claus.  And who is Santa Claus?

 

HAHAHA.  He is of course, a true demonic personality, the embodiment of greed.  He is fat, for example.  He rides the night skies like Wotan.  He can enter houses.  In older days, people feared him and left food for him to placate this demonic character.  He was fused into a Christian bishop who gave three sisters gold so they would not be sold into sexual slavery by their poor father.  The whole business of Santa Claus has many dark corners.  

 

As for the lawyer who lost everything: screw him!  What sort of lawyer was he?  If you read the comments to this story, some of Madoff’s victims wail about how they couldn’t know his 10% returns in good and bad times was due to it being a scam!  Savings accounts at banks don’t give 10% a year for over a dozen years!  Nothing gives this amount!  That, alone, is a major warning sign!  If markets are good and it has a 10% return and when markets fall, it has 10%, this is impossible not to mention, a very odd rate of return.

 

Running a scam that uses a formula of ‘give them 10% in ‘growth’ no matter what means the scam artist doesn’t have to reprogram all of his computers that tracked all this loot and spat out the right 10% amount for each investor!  See?  10% is much easier than the NY state sales tax which is 8.45%.  Try figuring that!  Madoff would need more computers and Josh would be swamped!  

 

Here are two comments I found interesting:

Its hard to believe Bernie Madoff’s lifetime investors did not know he was somehow a crook. Better returns that everyone else, and how hard it was to get into the club. Most of these investors thought Bernie had a main track to inside information. They all thought Bernie was the best source of all good inside info, how the hell could he get these returns. With a country club of participants.. at the exchange, the SEC.. This would have gone on forever… Bernie just ran out of money.

Look into the SEC… there must be a group who protected Bernie. You know some SEC guys grandmother who has all her money with Madoff.
“He gives such great returns, it helps so many people and charities”

It’s a country club! They’re all guilty! Bernie, the SEC, and investors.

Bernie was such a good man – it is hard to fathom. He gave money to charity and to many Democrats like Schumer, Lautenberg, Spitzer, Hillary and Barrack. Bernie was such a good Democrat. I never thought his donations would get the Senators to make sure the SEC never regulated hedge funds. Chelsea has a job at a hedge fund and she my be NY’s next senator.

We were on such a cgolden ride with Bernie. We all knew Bernie was front running his investments through his market making firm but the returns were so steady and good. It makes me so sad. I know people who have lost everything. Bernie please give the money back.

HAHAHA.  One group thought they were getting insider deals!  Um, from a guy heading the stock market!  Fuck them!  The other thing is how puzzled people are that the SEC and Wall Street were utterly entangled?  HAHAHA.  Note that the story that Mary Schapiro hired Madoff’s brat is only just beginning to dawn!  This is all INSIDER stuff!  Everyone is corrupt especially the fox hired to clean up this mess!

 

Then there is the second comment: HAHAHA again!  Bernie was conspiring with all those people to prevent anyone from examining him closely!  Duh!  In the Godfather, a mobster demands Marlon Brando share his pocketful of corrupt political elected and appointed officials.  The Jewish Mafia is no different.

    Elaine: I like the way you piece things together.
    It is getting interesting and where this is going. I am waiting for the next shoe to drop, Maybe commodities and the Bush family has cornered the Dole Banana Industry. What next???
    Many say it will take years to follow the Madoff
    trail. And we probably already know as you have mentioned, it leads back to the Middle East. I cant wait to see who the FBI is going to haul off to prison because many are saying that many more are involved.

  2. You know when I saw a picture of Paulson today (and I think the same holds for Mukasey), I thought to myself even a bald fool can be scalped.

    Paulson: Congress needs to release second $350B
    Friday December 19, 10:24 am ET

    Absolutely everyone on-line was predicting this. That Paulson would wait until Congress was on break. And it has only 15 days to convene if they want to vote against to prevent it being automatically dispursed.

  4. Emanuel should drop out (he’s so close to Pelosi as well), and then Obama might have a chance. Otherwise, seems he’s doomed.

  5. Just my goddammed stinking OPINION.

    Hope Obama’s “People” are listening.

    Every time I see a “Santa Claus” I point my finger and shout: “It’s HIM!!! This is all HIS fault!!!”

    Therapeutic, at least.

    The real St. Nicholas was a good guy, as you mentioned. Most Americans don’t even know the story, which is a real shame.

  7. Speaking of little miss bunny rabbit nancy….this is for her….:



    As it is, I thought she grew up in Baltimore. You know, Lord Baltimore from Maryland…..
    :
    I doubt Obama’s People are listening, they’ve gotten drunk with the executive…..suckas.

  8. Regardless – If Emanuel stays “on the team” then Obama is busted. Obama is a bust (not the good type that might go on a coin…). How sad that he surrounds himself with those who are the perpetrators of ongoing and so unneccesary suffering of the innocence. Really this is not complicated – they knew it in the 1820’s when so many important debates occurred, but the wrong choices were made. Time to reap what you sow —- thus, why not cast off those who want to just continue the dead status quo. Any smart gamer would know what to do.

    Great piece of work, Elaine. “Overplaying one’s hand” is the phrase that comes to mind in all this.
    However:
    “we must arrest the Queen of England.”
    Save your energy. Queenie and the City of London (the “Square Mile”) are not the same thing. The Queen is merely very wealthy and, through her ‘loyal subjects’, is able to provide the armed forces for the use of the City. If the Queen, in her official capacity, wishes to enter the City, she is required to seek permission:
    “The City is not a part of England, just as Washington is not a part of the USA. The City is referred to as the wealthiest square mile on earth and is presided over by a Lord Mayor who is appointed annually. When the Queen wishes to conduct business within the City, she is met by the Lord Mayor at Temple (Templar) Bar where she requests permission to enter this private, sovereign state. She then proceeds into the City walking several paces behind the Mayor. Her entourage may not be clothed in anything other than service uniforms.”
    http://www.conspiracyarchive.com/Commentary/Crown.htm
    This snippet appears in an article which seems to have been taken from this second link but, mainly, itself, sets out the legal basis for the USA. Second link:
    http://www.freedomdomain.com/banking/the_city.html
    ~
    Although the subservience of the Queen to the Lord Mayor was already rattling around somewhere in my brain, I find these articles so startling that I almost hope someone will refute them.
    ~
    From the first link:
    “The Bar attorneys in the United States owe their allegiance and pledge their oaths to the Crown. All Bar Associations throughout the world are signatories and franchises to the International Bar Association located at the Inns of Court of the Crown Temple.”
    Is this true??!!
    And this:
    “At least five Templar Bar Attorneys under solemn oath to the Crown, signed the American Declaration of Independence.… The Declaration was simply an internal memo circulating among private members of the Crown. Most Americans believe that they own their own land, but they have merely purchased real estate by contract. Upon fulfillment of the contract, control of the land is transferred by Warranty Deed. …The Warranty Deed cannot stand against the Land Patent.”
    ~
    Wow, there is so much mind-blowing stuff in these links (esp. the first) that I am driven to upper case:
    PLEASE READ THIS STUFF. IF TRUE, WE ARE ALL LIVING AN ILLUSION.
    No point in going on. I hope Elaine can address this sometime.

  10. Bear – an illusion according to whose law? That shit sounds old and crusty to me. Bubba knows better I suspect.

    P.S. The Queen can shove it up her ass.

  11. Bear of Little Brain

    Well, I did say, “No point in going on”, but what about this:
    “Another method used to hoodwink natural persons is enfranchisement. Those cards in your wallet bearing your name spelled in all capital letters means that you have been enfranchised and have the status of a corporation. A ‘juristic personality’ has been created, and you have entered into multi-variant agreements that place you in an equity relationship with the Crown.”
    I think that means you, too, American citizens.
    Note: from the previous links the “Crown” is not the HM, the Queen.
    “The ‘Crown’ is a committee of twelve to fourteen men who rule the independent sovereign state known as London or ‘The
    City.'”
    Jeez, Louise.

    Suddenly, Mary Croft’s little on-line book, “Mary Croft – How I Clobbered Every Bureaucratic Cash-Confiscatory Agency Known To Man – A Spiritual Economics Book On $$$” doesn’t seem far-fetched any more.
    (Google “Mary Croft” and the first item is her book, in pdf – well, for me, anyway).
    This is all crazier than Alice in Wonderland.

  12. Bear of Huge Brain is is funny you mention that. My daughter (Amber) just appeared in her middle-school play “Alice in Wonderland”. She was the dodo bird. I’m so proud of her.

  13. My ancestors got THEIR land patent from Holland and the Duke of Orange. And on their deeds, it says very clearly, we own the earth all the way to the CENTER of the earth as well as the SKIES above all the way to Jupiter! I kid you not.
    .
    The very first violation of this was when the Supreme Court ruled, as one of my more irate relatives sued in court, that planes can fly in our sovereign airspace! How dare they?
    .
    Now, the military flies huge jets right over my roof, I kid you not, mere dozens of feet high, periodically, to my great rage.
    .
    About the Queen: the City works WITH her, damn it! And who is cut out of the deal? PARLIAMENT!!! Gads. ALL kings and queens of Merry England would flee to that spot for safety. See? When there were raging mobs of peasants, the City would bar the gates to them. If a king annoyed the City, they barred the gates to the king and let the mob of peasants or Paliament hammer him. They did this to King John, for example.
    .
    Members of my clan were party to the Magna Carta, incidentally.

    /plan coming down\
    :
    1. Keep enough subs around the homeland for proper and necessary defense.
    2. Send a few subs to the pirate coves.
    3. On good intelligence (we need this don’t we?), let one of the pirate ships know that their moments are limited.
    4. Encourage the pirate ship to surrender.
    5. If the pirates refuse, teach them a lesson about civilization.

    This is really freaking encouraging. Damned! Yeah! I guess we’re damned again.

    May a thousand nasty, stinking, worn out, athletes-foot-infested, tennis shoes rain down upon this bunch of dirty dealers, especially Immanuel and Mary Schapiro and the other nasty little criminals they are protecting.

    Here we go a-fucking-gain. Why doesn’t the new administration just run a message at the bottom of the screen on Fox News channel that asks everyone to please just keep bending over, or maybe they could come up with a cute logo depicting this and keep it in the lower corner of the screen at all times–maybe a small pic of average old Joe the Plumber bent over with his pants down around his knees with this big, masked bully dressed in red, white and blue behind him in a forward hump position.

    Sorry! Whew! Got carried away there for a moment.

    In the still (very tiny) hopeful part of my brain, I still picture Obama with a sincere look on his face. We all know he’s a first…lets hope he’s not a last because of his being a “sucka” who allows malfeasence to run rampant within his adminstration like G W Bush (may a thousand old blood speckled combat boots rain down upon him) did.

    Whew! Did it again.

    Deep breathing…puff, puff, puff…got to get some control.

    I’m kinda old. I remember reading accounts of the failing former Soviet Union under Leonioid Breshnev. The entire upper tiers of the government became so corrupt that the people no longer trusted a thing that came from the central planners. Every system at every level became corrupt and almost completely impaired the legitimate delivery of goods and services to the people….simply because nobody at they top gave a whit about the people or their needs…leaders were busy with their behind-the-scenes corruption and power struggles. The country collapsed around them without their really noticing that it was happening.

    Commerce shut down, and store shelves
    became empty. Bartering and trading for food, goods and services became a way of life for the peasants.

    If this continues, I’m going to talk to my doctor and dentist about their need for live chickens, ducks or maybe some fresh garden vegetables or maybe car repairs or gardening.

    I usually try to look at basic questions. I can’t yet be fully sure whether Obama is complicit in all this or if he is just new to the game… In any case, he should know that a person cannot “deal with the devil” without eventually getting burned.

  24. Okay, the FINE SNOW that seriously builds up is now falling in the Pioneer Valley, 100 miles east of Elaine. Be careful with the big truck, Elaine!

    “Conspiracy theorists like myself believe modern history reflects a long-term conspiracy by an international financial elite to enslave humanity.

    Like blind men examining an elephant, we attribute this conspiracy to Jews, Illuminati, Vatican, Jesuits, Freemasons, Black Nobility, and Bildersbergs etc.

    The real villains are at the heart of our economic and cultural life. They are the dynastic families who own the Bank of England, the US Federal Reserve and associated cartels. They also control the World Bank and IMF and most of the world’s Intelligence agencies. Their identity is secret but Rothschild is certainly one of them. The Bank of England was “nationalized” in 1946 but the power to create money remained in the same hands.

    England is in fact a financial oligarchy run by the “Crown” which refers to the “City of London” not the Queen. The City of London is run by the Bank of England, a private corporation. The square-mile-large City is a sovereign state located in the heart of greater London. As the “Vatican of the financial world,” the City is not subject to British law. “

  29. The Crown and the City are one and the same. But the Queen doesn’t want pesky peasants besieging her in her many palaces.

  30. I sortof wonder what the queen will do…but not too much. Protecting palaces made of legal fallacies (mathamatically) is a fool’s venture, and if not the queen, whomever follows her, will soon recognize the truth of this wisdom.

  35. GK

    What is the more likely scenario to readers using deductive logic? The queen herself runs the global monopoly on oil, gold, diamonds and money, or an informal association of royal households that share the power?

    I had dinner once with the Dutchess of Westminster, who was very nice, but more concerned about her house guests drinking her booze than ruling the world. I vote for the Club of the Isles option.

    http://www.savethemales.ca/000447.html

    According to the “American Almanac,” the bankers are part of a network called the “Club of the Isles” which is an informal association of predominantly European-based royal households including the Queen. The Club of the Isles commands an estimated $10 trillion in assets. It lords over such corporate giants as Royal Dutch Shell, Imperial Chemical Industries, Lloyds of London, Unilever, Lonrho, Rio Tinto Zinc, and Anglo American DeBeers. It dominates the world supply of petroleum, gold, diamonds, and many other vital raw materials; and deploys these assets at the disposal of its geopolitical agenda.

    Its goal: to reduce the human population from its current level of over 5 billion people to below 1 billion people within the next two to three generations; to literally “cull the human herd” in the interest of retaining their own global power and the feudal system upon which that power is based.

    Historian Jeffrey Steinberg could be referring to the US, Canada and Australia when he writes, “England, Scotland, Wales, and, especially, Northern Ireland, are today little more than slave plantations and social engineering laboratories, serving the needs of …the City of London…

    These families constitute a financier oligarchy; they are the power behind the Windsor throne. They view themselves as the heirs to the Venetian oligarchy, which infiltrated and subverted England from the period 1509-1715, and established a new, more virulent, Anglo-Dutch-Swiss strain of the oligarchic system of imperial Babylon, Persia, Rome, and Byzantium….

    The City of London dominates the world’s speculative markets. A tightly interlocking group of corporations, involved in raw materials extraction, finance, insurance, transportation, and food production, controls the lion’s share of the world market, and exerts virtual “choke point” control over world industry.”

    GR is an interesting character indeed. The route to fame and power is to embrace secular humanism and he had done that brilliantly. The war on faith by the agnostics, atheists, gnostics, satanists, and pagans is about 75% complete I would estimate.

    http://judicial-inc.biz/interesting_jewish_descendants.htm

    “1. Lillian Friedman married Cruz Rivera. They named their baby Geraldo Miguel Rivera.(Funny, it doesn’t sound Jewish.) Since, according to Jewish law, anyone born to a Jewish mother is Jewish, Geraldo Rivera is Jewish. ”

    ===
    But remember, Christian, Jewish and Muslim religions have all been invaded by Secular Humanism (check out your US currency with the statement NOVO ORDUM SECULORUM – New Order of the Ages). The Vatican used to be strongly against communism until Vatican II when the coup was completed.

    Here is an article about a passionate, faithful Jewish person arguing eloquently against the invasion of his religion by secular humanism.

    http://www.thejidf.org/2008/12/down-with-chanukah.html

    “What have we here? What kind of religious intolerance and bigotry? What kind of a man is this for the anti-religious Ha’shomer Ha’tzair, the graceful temples of suburbia, the sophisticated intellectuals, the liberal, open-minded Jews and all the drones who have wearied us unto death with the concept of Judaism as a humanistic, open-minded, undogmatic, liberal, universalist (if not Marxist) religion, to honor? What kind of nationalism is this for Shimon Peres (he who rejects the ‘Galut’ and speaks of the proud, free Jew of ancient Judea and Israel)?

    And to crush us even more (we who know that Judaism is a faith of peace which deplores violence), what kind of Jews were these who reacted to oppression with force? Surely we who so properly have deplored Jewish violence as fascistic, immoral and (above all) un-Jewish, stand in horror as we contemplate Jews who declined to picket the Syrian Greeks to death and who rejected quiet diplomacy for the sword, spear and arrow (had there been bombs in those days, who can tell what they might have done?) and “descended to the level of ‘evil” thus rejecting the ethical and moral concepts of Judaism.”

    Ahhhh

    This is where the rubber meets the road.

    Nobody’s right if everybody’s wrong.

    The Brothers Karamazov is an excellent read pertaining to the secular humanism topic.

    I think secularism, i.e., separation of church and state is probably a pretty good concept. But humanism, i.e., placing mankind at the top of the universe, is very dangerous territory.

    Dostoevsky’s Russia didn’t make out too well behind all this, unfortunately, and it looks like our own society and culture is heading down the same road.

    This is why I am not a staunch liberal. I am a moderate. Stop the true religious crazies (end times fanatics and hate mongers) from taking over the government but be very wary of the excessive undermining of mainstream American Christianity that comes from silencing or marginalizing their influence on every cultural issue. It can help mitigate the unchecked replication of Evil and is our best hope of avoiding ending up too much like Nazi Germany or Communist Russia. If a few people have to be “offended” by a moderate religious influence in our culture and public affairs then so be it, it’s better than the alternative. Trust me on this.

    It is interesting that you should mention the The Brothers Karamazov. As I read about totally remorseless elites who conspire to cheat us and run our lives, I too thought about Dostoevsky.

    I just love Dostoevsky’s parable where the grand inquisitor has Jesus imprisoned in a dungeon and waiting to be burned at the stake in the morning. He visits Jesus and tells Jesus he has failed because he has allowed humanity to have freedom instead of relieving their suffering. [this from Wikipedia]… The Inquisitor frames his denunciation of Jesus around the three questions Satan asked Jesus during the temptation of Christ in the desert.

    These three are the temptation to turn stones into bread, the temptation to cast Himself from the Temple and be saved by the angels, and the temptation to rule over all the kingdoms of the world.

    The Inquisitor states that Jesus rejected these three temptations in favor of [allowing mankind] freedom to make its own choices.

    The Inquisitor [and the church and powers that rule men] thinks that Jesus has misjudged human nature, though. He does not believe that the vast majority of humanity can handle the freedom which Jesus has given them. Thus, he implies that Jesus, in giving humans freedom to choose, has excluded the majority of humanity from redemption and doomed humanity to suffer.

    Despite declaring the Inquisitor to be an atheist, Ivan also implies that the Inquisitor and the Church follow “the wise spirit, the dread spirit of death and destruction,” i.e. the Devil, Satan, for he, through compulsion, provided the tools to end all human suffering and unite under the banner of the Church [including approved feudal rulers]. The multitude then is guided through the Church by the [self-selected] few who are strong enough to take on the burden of freedom. The Inquisitor says that under him , all mankind will live and die happily in ignorance. Though he [the church and feudal rulers] leads them only to “death and destruction,” they will be happy along the way. The Inquisitor will be a self-martyr, spending his life to keep choice [and freedom] [away] from humanity.

    (me)… This appears to be what these small numbers of masterful secretive ruling financial elites that Elaine is describing appear to genuinely believe. That they are doing all of us ignorant peasants a great favor by oppressing us and steeping our lives in ignorance by teaching us mythic religious tales that allow us to explain away our suffering under their rule and leadership. They alone, the guardians, the elite, the (self) “chosen” deserve true freedom and endless wealth and lives of luxury….but then they complain that “it’s such a burden they have to carry upon their shoulders as they slaughter us in wars and depopulate us with economic depressions…Oh it’s a such a burden, but someone must do it.

    This is their arrogance and contempt for the common man and common woman.

  56. Gary Oppewall

    The Role of the Mainstream Church—and in America that IS
    the Fundamentalists—-all through history has been to keep
    Jesus nailed to the cross. Almost right from the beginning the
    church started sucking up to the secular powers. The church
    exists to keep the message of Jesus’ life hidden in plain sight.

    Other people similar to Jesus have suffered the same fate.
    Look at our own MLK. While he was living, he was reviled
    by the media, followed by the FBI, and treated like a terrrorist.
    Since he was assasinated, he’s been turned into a “saint”
    by a process of sanitizing much like the church canonizes
    their saints. You always hear his “I have a Dream” speech
    but you dont ever hear his critiques of Vietnam and the
    Military Industrial Complex. Or his criticism of unfettered
    capitalism contributing to poverty and stress.

    We assasinated him again by burying his message. Just like
    the church keeps torturing Jesus by keeping him on the
    cross.

    MY GOD IM A CMMENTS A HOLLIC
    .
    A reader pointed me to a 2005 paper by Zvi Bodie and Robert Merton on the “Design of Financial Systems.” They argue that neoclassical finance theory – frictionless markets, rational agents, efficient outcomes – needs to be combined with two additional perspectives: an institutional approach that focus on the structural aspects of the financial system that introduce friction and may lead to non-efficient outcomes; and a behavioral approach that focuses on the ways in which and the conditions under which economic actors are not rational (see my post on bubbles, for example). The paper walks through examples of how to think about some real problems we face, such as the fact that households are increasingly being forced to make important decisions about retirement savings, but generally lack the knowledge and skills to make those decisions. One of their arguments is that while institutional design may not matter in a pure neoclassical world, it does matter in the world of irrational actors: deposit insurance to stop bank runs is an obvious example.

    nah.

    You are so right..Jesus teachings (the red writing in the Bible) did change the old Roman world, but Jesus’ “message” was quickly perverted by the powers that still rule us all.

    According to an essay by the Great Russian writer, Leo Tolstoy, “The Law of Love and the Law of Violence”, Jesus early message was enormously successful….(People loving each other and trying to get along with each other)…so successful, in fact, that the Church itself was not collecting enough revenue and was failing. Ditto for the Roman Empire too. (conflict and wars create and destroy and move great wealth about) So, the Roman Emperor Constantine, in 345 AD., convened a conference of ruling elites and church leaders at Nicene, France where they came up with the “Creed of Nicene.” This brilliant device added the common liturgy to Christian worship services…”I believe in the Father, Son and Holy Ghost…and through my belief I am saved”

    Now, this new creed completely relieved Christian believers from following Jesus’ teachings of love, forgiveness and brotherhood. Believers were again free to cheat, rob and murder their neighbors anytime they wanted to gain more wealth, but they remained “saved” and would go to heaven in the end.

    This is the message that fundamental Christianity still teaches today. It’s alright to kill and cheat (especially for revenge or to enrich our nation) as long as you believe in Jesus, and of course, give a generous gift of the loot you plundered to the church or charity of your choice.

    Humans worship Death Gods because they fear LADY LUCK. She is the super-ancient one who is Random Chance and what creates, mutates and runs the entire cosmos?
    .
    Random Chance coupled with the Laws of Nature. We fear both and want to control both. Thus, the need to concoct Death Gods.

    Critical Contrarian, I have NO idea why your emails fail, by the way. I didn’t list you as ‘spam’ but it could be some sort of goofy glitch. It is quite mysterious! Perhaps, even accidental. Could you give me your email address here in comments? I will then try going the other way. I will also erase it once you post it.

    10% returns in good and bad times was due to it being a scam! Savings accounts at banks don’t give 10% a year for over a dozen years! Nothing gives this amount! That, alone, is a major warning sign! If markets are good and it has a 10% return and when markets fall, it has 10%, this is impossible not to mention, a very odd rate of return.
    Elaine, Gold has returned over 10% per year since 1999. If China and Japan were to get their Gold Reserves to 15% as the ECB stated they would. China would need 10,000 tonnes, and Japan would need 8200 tonnes. The IMF has ready buyers for their supposed hoard. BUY GOLD BULLION!!! Its going to explode. Dont believe the fear mongering about Gold. Gold is the bedrock of Indias economy, 1 billion people with a per capita income of $2700 per person consume 770 tonnes of fine gold per year. Indian brides have cornered the Gold market. The big NY gold shorts are FUCKED. OWN IT,BUY IT,HOARD IT. All who laugh at Gold bugs are laughing at 1 billion Indians who hoard gold from birth. This is a bull market that will not end anytime soon. We are in the beginning. Please, take advantage NOW.

    I have pointed out previously that the Nicean creed was an usurpation of Christ. However Christ as the universalist God of love is a deep misunderstanding.

    “Do not think that I came to bring peace on the earth; I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I came to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; and a man’s enemies will be the members of his household. He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; and he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who has found his life will lose it, and he who has lost his life for My sake will find it.” Matthew 10:34-39

    That is all in the family, no? ‘Death Gods’ is an affront to spirituality that is too ancient for you. Lady Luck is no God, but pure nihilism, no spirituality at all.

    Finally, that is the wrong scene. The real scene is where Vito Corleone meets Sollozo, who requests the meeting to ask for political protection for his drug racket. The godfather insults him when he says that he agreed to the meeting because he thought that Sollozo was a serious man. Meaning that Sollozo is not a serious man, a deeply humiliating insult. He also upbraids his eldest son, Santino for breaking ranks with the family by showing dissent to Sollozo. That gives Sollozo the opening to order Don Corleone’s assassination. ‘Never tell anyone outside of the family what you are thinking again.’ -Vito Corleone

  67. Dutch

    “World” is a metaphor. As it is written “true religion knows no bondage” . Imagine if you will. If you opened your Bible, and it opened time itself. And in between testaments was a mirror. One in essence could see through time.

  68. criticalcontrarian

    Elaine: pentstar@pldtdsl.net
    [..]
    The meaning of Matthew 10:34-39 is not verbatim. One has to read these words from a spiritual context, not a religious one. When Christ said I have come with a sword he was alluding to cutting the bonds of attachment to the world. Attachments represented by brother, sister , father, mother; family generally being the deepest attachments we have in the world. Christ was the human manifestation of the Word, therefore to reach God, or go back to God a disciple has to attach himself to his Master or Christ. Christ uttered these words to his then disciples, not the whole world.
    [..]
    Matthew 6:24 is very clear about this: “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” Mammon in this context is refers to possessions, or attachments.

  69. Bear of Little Brain

    All this biblical quotation. Did Jesus write this? Did he dictate it? Did he sign off on it? No. Even the very first gospel (of those selected for incorporation into the New Testament) is believed to have been written some time after his death (60 years?). Hence, you are debating a form of propaganda mixed with philosophy, at best; a reasoned madness, most probably.
    Nearly got sucked into expanding on that, hence adding to the lunacy. To keep on-topic: mostly I remember that Jesus drove the money changers from the temple; a few days later he was dead.

  70. David

    Commentors on Jesus:

    Thanks for reminding me of the Matthew 10:34-39 passage about Jesus coming as a destroyer who wedges himself between all human love relationships in order to gain total devotion to himself.

    I now remember my dear mom quoting this nasty stuff, and she made herself really miserable believing it.

    I ask myself, if we do not exist to devote ourselves somewhat to the betterment of others (family, friends, neighbors, countrymen), then, of what real use are we? Mothers would quit feeding their children just to follow Christ and their children would needlessly starve…and so on and on.

    Man! That’s some really nasty stuff…spreading philosophical guilt and misery and expecting total devotion anyway….no matter by whoever, or whenever it was written.

    Thanks everyone for setting me straight, and I did have some notion that Christ tried to also spread a message of love and brotherhood…guess it’s maybe ok to have some love and brotherhood after we give the church all of our land and money and we are impoverished and have broken off all our relations with everyone and are isolated in Christ…
    Damned! What a miserable human existance? Now, I understand my dear departed mom’s conflict and misery to some extent.

    Just another control device to keep the peasant rabble giving to the church and obeying the ruling elites.

    Sorry for leading the discussion so far off topic.

    Complete devotion

  71. Bear of Little Brain

    Good stuff, David.
    A friend of mine attended a Catholic all-girls school, where she was taught by nuns. She often said that all she really left with was an A-level in guilt.

  72. criticalcontrarian

    David & Bear: I understand your concerns and misunderstanding. Before anything else, Bear, you are correct, Jesus did not write any of the Gospels they are all “according to”, not to mention the timeline disparity. Further, who knows what was changed or manipulated in the Council of Nicea.
    [..]
    Having said that, I would like to clarify what I meant. First off, I was speaking from a spiritual context, not a religious one. What I said was the best likely explanation for the words attributed to Christ based on mystical terms. No one is converting, convincing or threatening you under pain of death or excommunication to become Catholic or Christian or whatever, certainly not me.
    [..]
    The key point in any endeavor is being clear about what ones goal is. If it is to be worldly or material well we all know how to do that, don’t we? If your goal is to go back to God then there are various methods to do so. Bottom line, if you are moving in the wrong direction it doesn’t matter how fast you are going for you will never reach your destination. Goal is key, and this is where most people get lost, in the first step.
    [..]
    If one has a mystical bent and wants to find God one has to change their life tack from centrifugal to centripetal. It is a counterflow path. Attachments are centrifugal. However, one does not have to turn ascetic, there is a middle path that allows one to fulfill ones obligations while practicing spirituality. Moderation is good. That simple, but it is not for everyone. Mysticism is not about numbers or money. That is best left to formal religions and priestcraft.
    [..]
    David, Christ was an Essene Jew, a mystic sect of Jewry. They practiced a centripetal form of meditation. Thus the interpretation for Matthew 10:34-39 and Matthew 6:24. Take it in that light. True mysticism does not use guilt to make anyone conform to its path, does not advertise or ask for donations. It is a personal relationship between disciple and Master.

  73. emsnews

    Jesus became a violent revolutionary and was killed.

  74. emsnews

    His followers pulled swords on authorities. He then surrendered. The stuff about him going quietly was probably made up by his followers many years later when they decided to use a different course after the Temple was leveled by the Romans.

  75. criticalcontrarian

    Elaine doesn’t that depend on who wrote that particular history. Not any of the scribes who wrote the Gospels knew Jesus personally, or the disciples they attributed those statements too, its all 4th party information.
    [..]
    Let’s not go so far back, we do not even have an accurate accounting of WWII, it was written by the victors. Even more recent, what is written about Palestine, Tibet, Kashmir, Afghanistan and lets not forget Baghdad, is slanted by media. We know this. Most history is flawed, except for those who lived and experienced it, and even then there is a bias. It depends on the agenda of the party writing the story. So the key is to focus on your individual goal, the rest is chatter meant to distract.

  76. criticalcontrarian

    Btw Elaine, that is also why true mysticism subscribes to a living teacher, not a long dead one. Dead teachers cannot validate the teachings nor can they correct their disciples deviations in methodology and agenda.
    [..]
    People are very susceptible to convenience. For example, Lord Buddha was a vegetarian, yet the Dalai Lama is not. They are once a week vegetarians. When a teachers passes on the teachings gradually evolve into formal religions. Rites, rituals and ceremonies. God created man, man created religion.

  77. emsnews

    Very true, Critical contrarian.

  78. David

    criticalcontrarian:

    Yes, as you say God (whatever That is) created man, and man created religions. I think that most intelligent people occasionally let their thoughts ramble around and make some attempt to connect to some kind of Otherness or God if you will.

    As far as mainstream religions are concerned, I would argue that Buddhism is in some ways, the most honest because it leaves this God or Otherness or Nothingness largely undefined, and suggests taking a middle path in most things. Buddhism, however, also does the exact same thing as Christianity when it promotes excessive self-denial or withdrawal from fellow humans or daily pleasures and surrendering individual self-determination in this life in order to earn an “escape” from suffering in the future. This is very similar to a good Christian slave or factory worker being promised heaven after death if he/she suffers silently under “Caesar” (the elite masters).

    The beef I have with most religions, especially as you mention, is that as time goes on, monks, kings, emperors and interpreters (including even the two-year, Bible-college-educated, redneck ministers) of the “faith” or tradition keep modifying and “evolving” it to fit the needs of those in power. What might have started out with good intentions, quickly becomes a perverted psychological control device used for enslavement of the masses.

    Elaine: I think you too are absolutely correct about the Garden thing. Jesus tried to integrate his new cult into the Empire by going along with Rome..(the render unto Caesar thing), but he really pissed off the “old school” Jews who were extremely powerful and were much closer to the Roman rulers than Jesus imagined, so they hung him out to dry…literally. Rome wasn’t about to let the Jews create civil unrest over a little ole upstart cult leader…just get rid of the troublemaker..a matter of convenience. (some of this sounds just like the politics in our government today)

    Of course, this pissed off Jesus’ followers, and today, we have Christianity… and they’re still pissed off at anyone who questions their beliefs. The Jews are very smart to keep them believing that they (the Jews) are “God’s chosen people,” and keep them believing that the Judeo-Christian alliance can rule the world…just a matter of survival for the Jews. If they make a missstep or allow the alliance to break down, all hell will break loose on them like it did in WWII Germany..so they need to be very careful. Those Jews who are manipulating US policy now need to be careful and not create a backlash that will sweep them away… things could get ugly.

  79. This is all so serious…
    :
    I’m thinking of starting a new religion. I’ve just discovered it myself. I’m thinking of calling it “the Mulchers”. I told my wife about it earlier today. Anyhow, here is what the mulchers do:
    :
    1. We mulch leaves in situ.
    2. We have compost bins in the backyard.
    3. We try to grow things.
    4. We understand about the circle of life.
    5. We love trees.
    :
    Thats it so far. Obviously this religion is geared towards those living in forests (traditional locations of wealth – often short-term though). I happen to live in a forest, otherwise, I would never have been able to come up with this religion. If you want to join go ahead I don’t care….:grin:

    David, allow me to play catch up, it’s that busy time of year. You said: “Buddhism, however, also does the exact same thing as Christianity when it promotes excessive self-denial or withdrawal from fellow humans or daily pleasures and surrendering individual self-determination in this life in order to earn an “escape” from suffering in the future. This is very similar to a good Christian slave or factory worker being promised heaven after death if he/she suffers silently under “Caesar” (the elite masters).
    [..]
    Good point, let me try to address your concern. Buddhism is now a formal religion, and a lot of the original teachings of Lord Buddha have been ritualized and dogmatized. However, when Lord Buddha walked the earth things were very different. Pain is part and parcel of being in the human form, which is in the realm of Yin & Yang, of Maya or Illusion, the realm of Opposites. The laws of Creation applies to all regardless of beliefs.
    [..]
    A perfect mystic will teach his students the technique of finding and experiencing God while living (after one is dead there is little one can do if the chosen path is wrong or defective). They teach you how to go into the laboratory of the human body, the microcosm of the macrocosm, and experience Absolute Reality. They do not ask you to blindly believe the teachings, but rather to prove to yourself through actual experience by practicing their method/technique, that the teachings are real. Real “FAITH” comes from experience, not from feeling or emotion. True spirituality is about first experiencing, and eventually becoming. Spiritual elevation is realized by effort, not imagination. Mysticism requires action. Real faith comes later when one proves that the practice produces the desired result. It is in reality a spiritual science.
    [..]
    Further, a proper teacher will tell his disciple, if you do not realize the goal after practicing the technique, then leave the path by all means. Simple as that.
    [..]
    David said: “The beef I have with most religions, especially as you mention, is that as time goes on, monks, kings, emperors and interpreters (including even the two-year, Bible-college-educated, redneck ministers) of the “faith” or tradition keep modifying and “evolving” it to fit the needs of those in power. What might have started out with good intentions, quickly becomes a perverted psychological control device used for enslavement of the masses.”
    [..]
    Agreed. This is always the case. When the root dies out (the line of teachers ends) then the remaining followers turn it into something else, and money and power is a great part of the common agenda. Spirituality goes out he window. It becomes about quantity, not quality.
    [..]
    Bottom line: Mysticism teaches one that “life is a bridge, one does not build one’s house on a bridge”. We take the transitory for reality and reality for make believe. We are living in a mirror where real is opposite of our current reality. At the end of the day it boils down to what your priorities are. As the saying goes, “In the land of the blind the one-eyed man is King.”

    All religions are based on magic. The desire to control the future, the body, the mind, everyone in the universe, etc. We are the crazy apes who want to rule all we survey. As for conquering ourselves: it always fails. All we can hope is, when we meet Libra at the Gates of Death, she will be merciful of our shortfalls.

  87. GK

    All humans have to process new information and determine how it impacts their future.

    They then have to make a decision about what to do. This is essentially gambling, but there are many kinds of gambling.

    It seems like religions are kind of organized methods of dealing with uncertainty and the future.

    There are only so many things you can have ‘faith’ in to help you deal with deciding what to do in the future.

    You can have faith in your conscience, your immediate self-interest, nature, your rational mind, the rule of man, aliens, or nothing.

    Paganism teaches to believe in Nature around you.
    Atheism teaches to believe in the Rational Mind.
    Nihilism to believe in Nothing. Jesus teaches to be kind to your neighbor and believe in your conscience. Fundamentalism teaches to believe in the written bible. Catholicism teaches to believe in the pope’s interpretation of the bible. Money worship teaches to believe in immediate self-interest. Freemasonism teaches to believe in the rule of man.

    I believe in free enterprise where I follow my conscience to produce the best thing possible to benefit my fellow man and myself and family as best as I can using the gifts I have.

    There are people who want to rule themselves and people who want to rule others. There are people who want to make as much money as possible without regard to the consequences to their neighbors. There are people who despise others and want to make everyone else better. The are people who think life has no purpose and want to do nothing. There are people who think they are just part of nature and should live by the rules of nature.

    Each belief system suits each personality in different ways. People find which mechanism works best to suit their survival and package up that knowledge and pass it down to their children.

    Some people feel threatened by other systems and attack them directly by invasion, or indirectly by infiltrating them and subverting them.
