Six Issues Canadian Election Won’t Touch

Six Issues Canadian Election Won’t Touch

May 1, 2011

canada.freemason.party.leaders.jpg
Update. As you know by now, the Harper Conservatives won a majority of 167 seats. A reaction against the string of needless elections, and fear of the NDP (socialist) resurgence resulted in 40% of the electorate coalescing around the Conservatives, sufficient for a majority. The NDP did become the official opposition with about 104 seats. The Liberals were devastated with about 34.   
by Henry Makow Ph.D.
Rich in natural resources, Canada rode out the recession unscathed. The unemployment rate is only 7.7%, less than the 35-year average (8.53%.) The Canadian dollar is now worth $1.05 US.
The Harper minority government has provided competent if uninspired leadership. But rather than be grateful, Canadians are voting today in their fifth election in the last 10 years.
Style, not substance, brought down the Harper government. The Opposition spoke of a “democratic deficit” and charged them with “contempt of parliament.”  The Harper Conservatives weren’t sensitive enough to the feelings and prerogatives of the Opposition parties.
The world is going to hell and spoiled Canadians are squabbling over these niceties (while avoiding defining issues which I will discuss below.) 
Nevertheless, this unnecessary and unwanted election may actually bring some superficial change. The majority of Canadians are left-leaning. They like government social programs, cushy jobs and hand-outs.  Harper’s government is a little less generous and more business-oriented. Harper himself seems remote. 
Until now, the Left  vote was divided between three parties, the Liberals, the NDP and the regional Bloq Quebecois. But polls indicate that a general  crankiness has led to a large swing to the socialist NDP.
This has thrown predictions into disarray. Will the NDP divide the Left sufficiently to give Harper the majority of seats he covets? Or will it set the stage for a Left-leaning coalition government? Or will there be stalemate and gridlock? We’ll find out tonight. 
DEFINING ISSUES
Apart from who gets the handouts, people or corporations, there have been no defining issues. All four parties are generally agreed, or don’t want to risk alienating anyone by bringing them up. I suspect all four leaders are Freemasons or affiliated in some way. Here is a comparison of the party platforms. As you can see, they differ only in emphasis.
As a result, there is an air of unreality about this election. Here are six issues which would have made it real.      
1.  The handling of the G-20 Summit in Toronto last June: The billion dollar cost of “security” has been a minor issue. But the decision to use the conference as a NWO martial law exercise is not an issue. 1105 peaceful demonstrators were arrested and thrown into makeshift concentration camps.  This was the largest mass arrest in Canadian history. Undercover cops dressed up as violent anarchists, broke windows and set fires to police cars. Only 99 charges were laid. A thousand people were rounded up for no good reason. It was a national disgrace. The Harper government is extremely vulnerable on this issue yet the so-called “Opposition” parties have not made it an issue.

2. Harper’s pandering to Israel and Zionism. Harper has said “Canada will defend Israel whatever the cost.” Excuse me? Israel is the world’s fifth largest nuclear power. Canada is a military pipsqueak in comparison. Harper had nothing but praise for Israel’s slaughter of 900 non-combatants in Gaza in Dec. 2008. The Opposition leader has murmured about Canada returning to the role of honest broker, but neither he nor the NDP have made this an issue. There is a lot of anti-Zionist feeling in Canada, especially Quebec, but apparently the Masonic lodge has agreed on this one. Many Canadian Jews are also uncomfortable with Harper’s carte blanche for Israel.
Harper’s main fundraiser is a Jewish billionaire named Irving Gerstein. According to Wikipedia: “On February 23, 2011, Irving Gerstein was charged along with Senator Doug Finley for violations of the Canada Elections Act. Elections Canada alleges Irving Gerstein was complicit in a scheme that involved filing false tax claims and exceeding federal spending limits on campaign advertisements. If found guilty Gerstein faces up to a year in prison and fines exceeding $25,000.”           
3. Immigration. “Multiculturalism” has always been an issue too important to world government to allow Canadians (or Americans) to debate it. Any demurrals have been stigmatized as “racism.” Canada used to be a country of European Christian origin with a vibrant ethnic minority. It is becoming an Asian-Latin-African country with a European minority.
India, Japan, China, Nigeria, Mexico, Brazil, South Africa and Israel would not allow their cultural character to be transformed by migration. Yet the Illuminati bankers will not let Canada, the US and other people of European Christian origin have their own national homelands. Again, no political party will touch this issue because they are all in the same camp.     
4. Libya. The Canada I grew up in did not do the Rothschilds’ killing in far off places like Afghanistan and Libya. Canada spent $20 billion and lost 160 soldiers in Afghanistan. It has sent six CF-18’s to bomb Libya and kill Gadhafi’s children. China, Russia, Brazil, Germany and India abstained. Germany and Italy bowed out of NATO operations. All four Canadian political parties agreed to do it. This could have been a defining election issue. It is not. 
5. The “Security and Prosperity Partnership Agreement,”  the integration of North America is continuing behind the scenes. All opposition parties have signed on. 
“The SPP is a treasonous metamorphosis  of our federal and provincial government bureaucracies into formal instruments to implement the agenda of  the shadow government … dominated by the U.S Council on Foreign Relations, and the US military apparatus.
“Since March 2005, under the direction of three senior cabinet ministers of each country, about 100 working groups of unelected officials from government and industry have been meeting at taxpayer expense …restructuring of the apparatus of governance…implementing changes in our border crossings, in our airports, on our airplanes, in our skies, on and to our roads and highways, in our personal identification systems, in our health, in our vaccines, over our food supplements, in our pesticide safety  levels, in our schools and  universities, in the exploitation of our natural resources-our rivers, lakes, oil, gas, in our environment, in the arms industry, in the manufacture and use of  depleted uranium, in the exploitation of and experimentation on our indigenous people and our military personnel, in immigration, over our right of Habeas Corpus, in our right of due process, our right to assemble and our freedom of speech, etc., etc.”
6. Monetary Independence
The Statute of Westminster (1931) gave Canada the political freedom to make all domestic and foreign decisions but the ownership of the Canadian Federal Government didn’t change. On its heels came the birth of the Bank of Canada in 1934. The British Crown stepped behind the curtain to allow the appearance of autonomy, but it remained in full force through the field of finance.
“Her Majesty owns the Bank of Canada. The personal and corporate income taxes paid by Canadians are the profits for the Bank of Canada. These profits go to Her Majesty and the Bank of England, absorbing more than 10% of the GNP of Canada every year.”
“The ruling political party in Ottawa is not the real Government of Canada. They are the middle managers separating the owners from the Canadian people. The British Crown, Rothschilds and other European families own the Corporation of the Government of Canada. The British Crown owns the Bank of Canada.”
“Canada is not a sovereign nation but a private club, unknown to most Canadians. This is why the Queen’s face still appears on Canadian currency.”
Isn’t democracy an effective way to dupe the masses? That’s why everyone must vote.
CONCLUSION
Like most countries, Canada is controlled by the Rothschild banking cartel (“the Crown”, the “Bank of England” etc.) which controls our government’s credit. We will not be free until we control our own credit and renounce the portion of the debt that was created out of nothing.
The reason there are no defining issues is because our “leaders” are all working indirectly for the banking cartel, which controls the corporations and unions which finance them. The voter decides who implements the banker’s policy, with perhaps a degree of emphasis one way or the other. 
Canadians have been uniquely favored. But a people who take their good fortune for granted and fail to address the real underlying issues, eventually regret it.

CANADIAN OUTLAWS: Truth, Christians and Charter of Rights fall prey to Zionist misfeasance 

By Arthur Topham

March 3, 2013

The recent, decision handed down on Wednesday, February 27, 2013 by six of Canada’s Supreme Court justices, in the Saskatchewan (Human Rights Commission) v Whatcott case, was indeed a ‘supreme’ blow to Christians, to freedom of religion and to every individual’s right to freedom of speech in Canada. At the same time, it also was a remarkably clandestine victory for the foreign Zionist-Jew lobby groups such as B’nai Brith Canada, the Canadian Jewish Congress, and the Canadian Council for Israel and Jewish Advocacy (CIJA); all of whom reflect, represent and condone, in unabashed fashion, the principles and policies of the Zionist state of Israel, over and above the traditional rule of law that has been the hallmark of Canadian jurisprudence from its earliest beginnings.

On top of this victorious legal coup that the vast majority of Canadians remain either ignorant of or in denial of, there are the added collaborating players in this long-range agenda to subvert and mould Canada’s judiciary into a type more in keeping with that of the U.S.A’s; one which, in recent years, has become permeated by their Jewish lobby groups to such an extent that they’ve effectively emasculated the US legal system by introducing their own brand of Jewish Noahide laws into American jurisprudence. These Noahide laws are, in fact, ones that stem from the ancient writings of the Jewish Talmud; a horrendously hoary and convoluted compilation of endless sophistry and intellectual meanderings that attempt to cover the full gamut of possible mental masterbation on any conceivable topic capable of debate, all of which boggles the mind and taxes the heart and soul of anyone who is able to locate and delve into the bottomless pit of arcane, abstruse, macabre deliberations found therein.

Canadian Zionist distress

It is my contention, based upon all recent research and extrapolation, that this same clandestine, Fifth Column Zionist-instigated seditious process is, and has been, occurring here in Canada since the inception of our nation’s “hate speech laws” that, coincidentally, began to gain ascendency in Canada’s house of justice back in the late 1960’s when the major Jewish lobby groups first began to amalgamate and initiate this calculated, step by step, surreptitious program of incremental changes to Canada’s legal system; one that would eventually see the switch over from former Christian democratic principles of freedom of speech to those of the Talmudic Jewish Noahide laws under which Jewry has operated over the past two millennia.  It is also my added contention that these subtle changes have been, and are being, spearheaded by those very justices of the Supreme Court of Canada who hold duel citizenship with the state of Israel and whose ultimate allegiance, I strongly allege, is first and foremost to that foreign nation.

Compounding and exacerbating this traitorous intent to corrupt and debase Canada’s legal system via “hate crime legislation” is the growing realization by many Canadians that our so-called “independent” media is, in fact, totally controlled, editorially and otherwise, by this same self-serving Zionist Jew consortium and that these media monopolists, along with their line of sycophantic, sayanim journalists and talking heads, are the major propaganda force behind this plot to subvert the Canadian justice system.

Most Canadians who have not been asleep at the wheel politically are now fully cognizant of the fact that the Harper Conservative government is the key to the success of these Zionist “hate crime” operatives and their eventual triumph in binding the mouths and minds of Canadians so that any and all criticism of their planned take-over of the country will not be openly discussed, either in the print media, television or on the Internet. Their arsenal of epithets stands ready 24/7 to support any smear & fear campaign necessary to belittle and slander and denigrate those who show any indication of not bowing down in obeisance to their treasonous scheme to dismantle and re-create our former legal system so as to have it fit harmoniously with all the other nations that have also been infiltrated by these same self-chosen zealots.

The whole of the homosexual agenda is but one of the ruses that these lobbyists use in order to divide, confuse and conquer their opponents and justify, via their human rights commissions, tribunals and their Supreme Court double-agents, the introduction of more and more repressive anti-democratic “hate speech” laws. These tactics, for those who have studied the Zionist’s modus operandi to any degree, are par for the course. The crucial thing for them is to use others rather than come straight out and say we’re bringing in all these repressive, Orwellian laws because we don’t want Canadians discussing and debating our ideology, our motives or our agenda; one that includes enslaving and punishing anyone who steps out of line and beyond that the total destruction of the Christian religion as we now know it.

There is, on top of all these seemingly inexplicable occurrences, a vital question that needs to asked and addressed with respect to the inordinate number of Zionist, duel-citizenship Jewish justices who have somehow wended their way upwards to the apex of Canada’s judicial system and are now literally in positions of supreme power and control with respect to influencing both our Constitution and our Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Given that Canada is noted world wide for being a proactive, multicultural nation; one that welcomes immigrants from around the world to its shores and touts itself as being an open, free and culturally diverse society, the blatant imbalance that we are witnessing today in the ethnic composition of our Supreme Court justices is beyond question a problem in dire need of explanation.

Were we, as a nation, to give equal opportunity and consideration to the various visible minorities that make up our country’s population then this ought to be reflected in the composition of those who sit in judgement at the top of our federal judicial system.

canada_us_israel_distress_flag

Knowing that our First Nations population is the largest minority group in Canada it behooves all Canadians to ask the obvious: why do we not have a First Nations justice sitting in on our supreme court? Given that this nation was formed, literally, from the soil of the original people’s land and also given that the First Nations people constitute the largest group in the Canadian population matrix does it not make sense that when it comes to representing their interests that someone from their ranks ought to be a member of this august group of supreme court justices?

Next in line is our Chinese-Canadian population topping the list as the largest visible minority in Canada and again the obvious question is: why do we not have a Chinese-Canadian justice sitting in the SCC?

Next in line we have a very large South Asian population followed by an equally large black population. Where are the South Asian and the Black supreme court justices?

Finally, getting to the crux of this perplexing situation, as we go down the scale of relative population demographics  we come to the ethnic Jewish population in Canada which, according to the Jewish Virtual Library, in 2010 numbered 375,000 in population, ranking somewhere in the neighbourhood of 25th in terms of group size and comprising, out of a total population of 33,890,000 Canadians, 1.1% of Canada’s total population. Yet, for their relatively small numbers in terms of percentages they now hold 4 out of 9 positions on Canada’s Supreme Court. That works out to 44.4% of Canada’s supreme court justices somehow stemming from 1.1 % of the country’s total population. If common sense cannot tell people that there is a glaring discrepancy here then something surely is wrong in the way that Canadians view the make-up of their nation’s highest court.  No amount of intellectual verbiage can explain why this is so without getting into the fundamental question of what the real reasons are for this most obvious of imbalances wherein we have a preponderance of duel-citizen Jewish justices sitting and deliberating the vital questions currently being discussed in this brief essay.

Of course the immediate reaction from the Zionist lobbies is to reach up their proverbial sleeve and pull out their “anti-Semitic” and “hate speech” cards and flash them across the nation via their controlled media in typical fashion whenever their power base is questioned or threatened. Then will follow their sophistry and rhetoric emanating from the academics and talking heads arguing that this blatant discrepancy is simply due to the fact that Jewish lawyers are the most intelligent, experienced and therefore qualified of all of Canada’s lawyers and, like the cream atop the cow’s milk, they naturally rise up to those positions of eminence and power.

As the kids would say, “Yah, sure.”

To conclude, it cannot be stressed or repeated enough that we either have free speech or we have controlled speech where Big Brother takes control of our conscience and our mind and leaves us as automatons and slaves to do their bidding and those who now sit in judgement over our collective rights , due to their recent actions in the Whatcott case, must be treated with the utmost suspicion and their motives fully analyzed.

The time to act on these concerns is yesterday. Tomorrow may be too late.

The SCC Puppets

I present below the figures of the three Ashkenazi Zionists who have, along with their controllers in Tel Aviv and elsewhere, and the other three Shabbez Goi justices, perpetrated this seditious act of attempting to twist the truth and our human right to freedom of speech into some form of kosher, Zionist fritter all the better to fragment and confuse the people of Canada so as to lure our nation further astray into the nightmare that awaits the world should Zionism ever gain full control over independent nation states.

It must also be adamantly born in mind as well that the fact that I am presenting and focusing on these three individuals is absolutely not to be misconstrued as having excused the other three protagonists in this deceptive legal drama. The primary purpose here is accent the Jewish lobby in Canad and its unsavory effect upon Canada’s legal system. It goes without saying that the other three justices have, for whatever reasons, also consented to this agenda and ought to be removed from their positions along with the three Zionist duel-citizen justices in question here.

McLachlin photo McLachlincopy_zps96a077d6.png

With respect to Canada’s current Madam Chief Justice McLachlin it is also relevant and fitting that the following quote by Jason Moscovitz of the CBC be mentioned here as it is most relevant to an understanding of the mindset of these six judicial side-kicks when it comes to our right to freedom of speech.  Jason Moscovitz states: “Of all the attributes she brings to the high court, there is one that sticks out. Many legal experts say she does not consider the Charter of Rights to be necessarily sacred.” [Jason Moscovitz CBC Date: 991103 Time: 22:00:00 ET – 22:26:00 ET]

AbellaFlag photo abellaFlag_zpsbf55ffb4.png

While still in her twenties SCC Abella was appointed a member of the Human Rights Commission of Ontario. Her husband, Irving Abella, is the J. Richard Shiff Professor of Canadian Jewish Studies at York University in Toronto and a past president of the Canadian Jewish Congress, one of the leading “hate speech law” lobby groups in Canada.

SCC Justice Abella is on the International Board of the Hebrew University, a member of the United States Holocaust Museum’s Committee on Conscience (again, pushing the 6 million lies of the Zionists that have become since WWII one of the principal pillars supporting all of their criminal actions since that time).

The president (Canadian Section) of the International Commission of Jurists, cited her as one whose “entire life has revolved around the cause of human rights… She has shaped Canadian policy in equality rights, and…has also had a profound impact on human rights law and policy outside Canada.” The precise manner in HOW SCC has “shaped Canadian policy in equality rights” is now fairly apparent given her complicity in this recent and deplorable attack upon Canada’s unquestionable right to freedom of speech.

SCC Justice Abella also served as a commissioner on the Ontario Human Rights Commission. Again, those who have been complicit in the actions of the human “rights” commissions here in Canada have revealed their motives clearly enough over the past decade and longer and have lost credibility in the eyes of the rest of the 98% of Canada who do not want to have their rights tampered with to satisfy the spurious and fraudulent false front arguments of special minority groups.

True to his name there’s definitely something “fishy” about this lastest SCC decision.

RothsteinFlag photo RothsteinFlag_zps2256d32f.png

SCC Justice Rothstein has served as an adjudicator under the Manitoba Human Rights Act from 1978 to 1983 and as a member of the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal from 1986 to 1992. He has also held many other offices or appointments connected to the Manitoba Human Rights Act and the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal.

So what have people like Marshall Rothstein learned from all of their involvement in harassing and vilifying and criminalizing Canadians for having exercised their God-given right to freedom of expression and speech? By all appearances he’s learned that the manipulation of the law,when it is being supported by a Fifth Column media and a host of complicit, compromised politicians under the sway of the Zionist lobby, is relatively easy to accomplish and virtually a fait accompli.

Crypto Jew Stephen Harper 

This is in NO way ANTI SEMITIC in any form or intention.WE ARE NOT RACIST IN ANY WAY, SHAPE OR FORM. We Believe in Equality for all mankind even these Khazar Criminals if they truly ask for forgiveness and truly repent of there sins   We believe the real Jews to be the real Historic Victims in all this and it goes as far back as ancient Egypt .

Now as the People that we are talking about are FALSE JEWS  and not Jewish at all but of the SYNAGOGUE of SATAN as it states in the Book of Revelation chapter  2.9  I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.. and chapter   3.9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

 This whole Khazar Ashkenazi Zionist Cabal could also possibly answer why all of a sudden the USA-NATO/Israel is trying to provoke war in the Ukraine to supposedly free it from Russian control they say, but this is obviously a lie.  The Ukraine just happens to be the real ancient Homeland of these Khazar False Jew Criminals and they are backing up there asses just in case there discovered to be the phony liar they are and get kicked out of Palestine if first there not all convicted and executed by there own guillotines they had planed to uses on all of the rest of the 99% of  us…We believe its all just in case so that these insane psychopathic Khazar criminals think they will have a home place to go back to just in case there Evil New World Order scheme fails and its starting to look like they might fail, but that is when they are the most dangerous and usually pull off some type of evil terrorist false flag plot and just like there False Jew status its all by Satanic plan of deception as Satan has always taught mankind that its his way, and its not GODS way

666777666

The Evil incarnate in these people comes directly from the Pharisees and Scribes of ancient Israel writing the Babylonian Talmud while in exile in Babylon and this is where all the Blood Sacrifice the Sexual Perversions and the Racist doctrine came from. They also took the TORAH and changed  perverted and corrupted all the verses and laws given to Moses to pass on to Humans in the Torah The Talmud is not written or has any prophetic words of GOD in it.  It is completely written by man and they must have got some insight given to them by none other than Satan the great deceiver himself because its so Evil its DIVINELY EVIL in nature

Wake up Canadian people this evil has infected Canada through Crypto Jew Stephen Harper’s Criminal Government and it is now totally rampant in Canada

Status: Unknown

Bill C-51, with the short title of Anti-terrorism Act, 2015, is a piece of passed legislation to amend over a dozen Canadian laws, including the Criminal Code,[2] to permit Canadian government agencies to share information about individuals with ease, and broadens the mandate of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS).[3] It is the first comprehensive reform of this kind since 2001.[4]

The bill was introduced and passed by the Conservative Party, who hold a majority in Parliament, with support from the Liberal Party.[5][6] It was opposed by the Green Party of Canada[7] and the Official Opposition, the New Democratic Party (NDP), who have also filibustered Parliament to increase the time allocated to expert witness testimony on the Bill.[8]

This proposed anti-terrorism Bill passed third reading with a vote 183-96 in favour.

Background
I think it’s obvious that the attacks in October were at least inspired by the insane vision of ISIL … a genocidal terrorist organization that has explicitly, and on several occasions, said that it is targeting Canada.

Jason Kenney, Defence Minister[9]

Between 2013 and 2014, there had been twelve threat-to-VIP incidents according to the RCMP.[10]

On October 20, 2014, Martin Couture-Rouleau deliberately rammed a car into a pair of Canadian Armed Forces soldiers in a shopping centre parking lot in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec. The attack was linked to terrorism by government and police officials including in a statement by Prime Minister Stephen Harper.[11][12]

On October 22, 2014, a series of shootings occurred on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, conducted by Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, which left one Canadian soldier and Zehaf-Bibeau dead.[13] Prime Minister Stephen Harper labelled the shootings as a ‘terrorist act’, stating that “this will lead us to strengthen our resolve and redouble our efforts and those of our national security agencies to take all necessary steps to identify and counter threats and keep Canada safe here at home, just as it will lead us to strengthen our resolve and redouble our efforts to work with our allies around the world and fight against the terrorist organizations who brutalize those in other countries with a hope.”[14] After the incident security on Parliament Hill has been transferred to the RCMP.[10]

In response to these incidents, the Conservative government introduced multiple pieces of legislation that affect security, privacy and the power of policy agencies such as bills C-13, S-4, and C-44.[15]

On February 23, 2015, Bill C-51 passed the second reading in the House of Commons with a vote of 176-87.[16]

In order to supervise the proper construction of the bill, the Conservative government planned to allot three sessions to witness testimony. After an NDP filibuster, the number of testimonies expanded to nine.[17]

Summary

This section needs additional citations for verification. Please help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources. Unsourced material may be challenged and removed. (May 2015)

Part one enacts the Security of Canada Information Sharing Act, which authorizes the disclosure of information throughout and within the government of Canada regarding activities that “undermine” Canadian security.

Part two enacts the Secure Air Travel Act, which creates listing mechanisms and prohibitions for persons who may pose a threat to air transportation or who may travel abroad to commit terrorism offences.

Part three makes significant amendments to the Criminal Code including criminalization of the expression of ideas related to terrorism.

Part four expands the mandate of CSIS to operate both inside and outside of Canada (also in conjunction with Bill C-44) and to operate in a more active manner, as opposed to its previously passive information collection role.

Part five relates to amendments to immigration security certificate legislation allowing, in part, the government to withhold information from the specially appointed, national security approved Special Advocates retained to represent a detained person in confidential and closed national security hearings.[18]

Objective

With an expanded mandate, CSIS would be granted the ability to “disrupt terror plots, make it easier for police to limit the movements of a suspect, expand no-fly list powers, crack down on terrorist propaganda, and remove barriers to sharing security-related information.”[3]

Under the bill’s changes, seventeen Canadian departments would be able to exchange information easily between each other, including tax information from the Canada Revenue Agency.[19]

Bill C-51 grants the Canadian government the ability to rightly intercede and stop “violent Islamic jihadi terrorists” inspired by the existence of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.[18] Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney stated that the international jihadi movement has “declared war on Canada” and other countries around the world.[20] He further reassured that the new tactics granted to CSIS would only be used if there are reasonable grounds to believe a particular activity constitutes a threat to the security of Canada.[20]

Support

Prime Minister Stephen Harper proposed the legislation, stating that the bill offered “considerable” oversight, and that it is a fallacy to suppose that “every time you protect Canadians, you take away their liberties.”[16]

The Liberal Party supports the bill;[21][22] Liberal Party leader Justin Trudeau has said it offers “significant improvements that will keep Canadians safer,” although he wants the bill to include more oversight and regular reviews. He has also suggested that his support is in part based on the upcoming election, and tactically avoiding the Conservative Party’s “fear narrative.”[19]

Criticism

Threat to civil rights


It is absolutely vital that terrorist threats be addressed through measures that are in keeping with international human rights obligations.

Alex Neve, secretary general of Amnesty International Canada[23]

The Canadian arm of Amnesty International indicated that the anti-terrorism bill could be used to target environmental activists and aboriginal protesters, or any other form of protest without an official permit or court order.[24] An RCMP report names Greenpeace in language that would permit CSIS powers against them.[25]

Information sharing

Daniel Therrien, the appointed federal Privacy Commissioner,[26] suggests that the bill fails to protect the safety and privacy of Canadians, for it grants unprecedented and excessive powers to government departments and agencies.[27] His analysis indicates that Bill C-51 “opens the door to collecting, analyzing and potentially keeping forever the personal information of all Canadians,” including every instant of “a person’s tax information and details about a person’s business and vacation travel.” Ultimately, Therrien calls for significant changes and amends to Bill C-51, so that it respects privacy rights.[27]

Law professor Craig Forcese, suggests that the increase of information the bill permits would “create a new concept of information sharing that is so vast that it risks increasing the size of the haystack to such a magnitude that it becomes more difficult to find needles”.[19]

Redundancy

Former British Columbia MP and cabinet minister Chuck Strahl says there is no need for greater oversight, and the existing five-member Security Intelligence Review Committee has done a good job to date.[28]

Enhanced CSIS disruption powers

Use of Islamophobia and fear tactics in the media

Lorne Dawson, a University of Waterloo sociology professor, stated that “CSIS is likely more interested in the kind of anti-immigrant, anti-Islam sentiment that has taken root in some parts of northern Europe.”[29]

On March 4, 2015, the Conservative Party released a promotional graphic over Facebook featuring an UGUS spokesperson threatening western shopping malls, naming West Edmonton Mall specifically. The post was judged to be “fear mongering”.[30][31]

Response

Open letters from Canadians

One hundred law professors have written against the bill.[32]

Over 150 Canadian Business leaders signed an open letter to the government circulated by OpenMedia.ca.

The Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke sent an open letter against the bill writing: “We feel that Bill C-51, in its current state, could potentially and perhaps even predictably be used to future oppress our defense of our Aboriginal rights and Title.”[33]

Public protest

The main website for the coalition of groups working to stop C-51 can be found at StopC51.ca. It is hosted by OpenMedia.ca in collaboration with several other organizations and people across the country. The #StopC51 campaign has seen over 235,000 online actions as of June 1, 2015 in addition to in-person events across the country.

Anti Bill C-51 rally in Calgary

Under the leadership of Paul Finch, the BCGEU called a major anti-C51 rally for Vancouver and began funding LeadNow to organize actions nationally.[34] Then after a successful post on the social media website Reddit, under the site’s subsection /r/Canada, a group of online activists generated another subsection for the organization of protests across the country.[35][36] Within a few weeks, over 70,000 Canadians have spoken out against the bill.[32]

Through ‘we.leadnow.ca’, forty-five protests occurred across Canada on March 14, 2015, which organizers called a Day of Action.[37] The rally drew thousands of demonstrators across fifty-five Canadian cities.[38] NDP leader Thomas Mulcair joined demonstrators in Montreal in a march to Justin Trudeau’s office, while Green Party leader Elizabeth May joined the rally in Toronto.[38]

Political response

The Prime Minister is telling Canadians they need to choose between their security and their rights — that safety and freedom are mutually exclusive. Instead of putting forward concrete measures to make Canadians safer and protect our freedoms, Conservatives have put politics over principle and introduced a bill that is sweeping, dangerously vague, and likely ineffective.

Thomas Mulcair, Leader of the Official Opposition[39]

On January 30, 2015, during an interview on CTV’s Question Period, B.C. Premier Christy Clark expressed opposition to the Bill.[40]

On February 4, 2015, the Communist Party of Canada began a campaign against Bill C-51 stating they “will do everything in our power to help defeat Bill C-51.”[41] On March 4, 2015, the party publicly supported the cross-Canada Day of Action against Bill C-51.[42]

On February 17, 2015, Elizabeth May of the Green Party of Canada voiced that she has “a number of concerns with the proposed legislation and wants it scrapped entirely.”[43]

On February 18, 2015, Thomas Mulcair of the NDP showcased his party’s opposition to the bill. During Question Period in the Canadian House of Commons, Mulcair stated that Canadians “should not have to choose between security and their rights.”[44]

On February 19, 2015, a joint statement was published and signed by four former prime ministers: Jean Chretien, Paul Martin, Joe Clark, and John Turner. Eighteen others signed the statement, including five former Supreme Court justices, seven former Liberal solicitors general and ministers of justice, three past members of the intelligence review committee, two former privacy commissioners and a retired RCMP watchdog.[45] The statement calls for stronger security oversight, as “serious human rights abuses can occur in the name of maintaining national security”.[45]

On March 1, 2015, the Pirate Party of Canada provided a press release in opposition to the bill, calling for debate, criticism and discussion.[36] Among their criticisms, they believe that the bill is redundant as there are existent laws dealing with terrorist, and this proposal opens the potential for governmental abuse as it “will also allow the government to arrest and incarcerate any citizen based on subjective evidence, then have that evidence destroyed”[46]

On March 6, 2015, Daniel Therrien, the Privacy Commissioner of Canada, stated that the powers of Bill C-51 “are excessive and the privacy safeguards proposed are seriously deficient.” He speaks to the potential of limitless powers within the 17 federal agencies that would exist if this bill were to be passed.[47]

Harper has lied and used 3 non terrorist event and called them Terrorist Act to pass his Tyrannical Bill C-51 These act were either act of just lone nut or Total False flag op with stooge mind controlled Manchurian Assassin regardless it does not really matter as it was a typical Hegalian Dialect op of PROBLEM REACTION SOLUTION

His PROBLEM was getting this tyrannical Bill C-51 passed as we all know there was a massive backlash against Bill C-51

His evil REACTION was to uses any sort of violent gun related event and call it a Terrorist event or if necessary use CSIS to create evil terrorist events

His payback SOLUTION for giving his Dictatorship such a hard time was finally ramming Bill C-51 with his Criminal De-Facto Majority Government down Canadian throats and clearly showing his total CONTEMPT For the Canadian People You and Me AGAIN

It’s a kind of perverse use of the Hegalian Dialect but it is still the same old Satan tactic of Deception. It’s a  Satanic evil principal of  Deceiving your opponents But when your decieving your own countrymen it becomes the worst of crimes it becomes TREASON

Harper is again Guilty of TREASON now for a 3rd count of GRAND TREASON

We as Canadians must act and we must act now or loose our entire Nation

Step 1: is for ALL Canadian to sign the petition at https://killc51.ca/

Step 2: Is to all vote in the next Election but we must all put a box on the Ballot for NONE OF THE ABOVE  because choosing the lesser of what 3 or 4 evil parties  is still CHOOSING EVIL

Step 3: Demand Justice for all past Governments crimes

Step 4: Make the Government run on the same system as Jury Duty Except this would be called Government Duty If selected you would serve one term at a set pay for a set period of time. No one citizen has to serve twice ONE term only. There would also be a severe criminal penalties system for anyone serving who in any way commits a criminal act against the people.

Harper is now a PM fleeing his own past

By Michael Harris | May 14, 2015 8:59 pm THE CANADIAN PRESS/Sean Kilpatrick

THE CANADIAN PRESS/Sean Kilpatrick

More from Michael Harris available here.

My congratulations to Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the Conservative party; they’ve found an even better form of voter suppression than robocalls. They have refused to participate in the TV debates put on for every general election by Canada’s network television consortium since 1968 — back when voter turnout was north of 75 per cent.

For the life of me, I don’t know why the PM blessed Maclean’s with the task of conducting the debate, when party spokesperson Kory Teneycke and the elite journalists of 24/7 were standing at the ready, fully funded by the taxpayers, to get the job done.

I guess Steve didn’t want the 10 million viewers that CTV, Global and the CBC have to offer. After all, a mass audience would only give his opponents a bigger opening to track for the entire nation the death spiral of democracy and the rule of law in Canada — to say nothing of the parody of Conservative ethical values the Harper regime now represents.

Maybe that’s why Harper wanted a change of moderators. Steve Paikin earned a reputation as a fair and impartial moderator in the 2008 and 2011 debates. Maybe that was a problem. Or maybe it was the fact that his son, Zach, tried to run for the Liberals.

The real reason for Harper’s sudden attack of cold feet is probably the Alberta election — which offered an object lesson in how a strong debate performance can change everything. Jim Prentice didn’t have enough spinners and fear-merchants to scupper the radiant sincerity of Rachel Notley.

69738_160991607279402_100001056916300_314085_1819797_n

There are a lot of things Steve might not want to be confronted with in a well-watched, well-researched television debate. Despite balanced budgets, low unemployment and a booming commodity export market under the Liberals, corruption and accountability dominated the 2006 election. The defining moment of the 2006 debate came when Stephen Harper said: “Will you tell us Mr. Martin, how many criminal investigations are going on in your government?”

Martin was defeated by the Ad Sponsorship scandal, an elaborate kickback scheme that saw public money directed back to the Liberal party. Martin wore it even though he wasn’t involved. To his credit, and for all the right reasons, he assembled his own firing squad in the form of the Gomery Commission.

For all the wrong reasons, Steve never called an inquiry into the robocalls scandal. Trust me — you will never see a boomerang leave Steve’s hands if he can help it.

At the time Steve asked Martin that question about criminal investigations in 2006, the correct answer would have been “two”. If someone were to ask Steve the same question during the 2015 debate, he wouldn’t have enough fingers on both hands to compute the response. By my count, the Harper team has been the subject of at least 15 investigations. The stable which he was supposed to muck out has become a pigsty on his watch.

The Conservatives cheated in the 2006 election. Criminal charges of improper election spending were dropped in March 2012 as part of a plea deal. The CPC pleaded guilty to exceeding election spending limits and submitting fraudulent election records. They chequebooked their way out of the slime — paying a $52,000 fine and then repaying a further $230,198.

The PM’s former parliamentary secretary, Dean Del Mastro, has been convicted on three counts of election fraud arising out of the 2008 election. He is now facing the possibility of jail time. His cousin, David Del Mastro, is also facing charges related to the 2008 election.

546_9391_web_enlarged

What about the conviction of Guelph Conservative party worker Michael Sona? Although the robocall case has faded from view, it remains an unsolved crime — because although the existence of a conspiracy was acknowledged by two judges, the conspirators themselves remain unknown. Now that Elections Canada has been castrated by the ‘Fair Elections Act’, their identities probably will never be known.

Peter Penashue, former minister of Intergovernmental Affairs, had to step down after it was alleged that corporations had made illegal contributions to his 2011 campaign. He paid back $47,000 to Elections Canada.

open quote 761b1bThe Harper team had to put the debate cobra back in the basket in order to avoid to limit the damage from these and other embarrassments. And it’s not like the hits haven’t kept hitting.

When Penashue resigned, Stephen Harper stood in the House and described him as “the best Member of Parliament Labrador ever had”. Which was astounding. Has a Canadian prime minister ever made a clearer statement condoning cheating?

Although Penashue set up the website for his byelection campaign before he even announced his resignation, he lost to the Liberals — the PM’s bankrupt endorsement notwithstanding. Earlier this month, Penashue’s official agent in the 2011 campaign, Reg Bowers, was charged with three counts under the Canada Elections Act.

And then there’s the little matter of Harper’s Senate appointments. Senator Mike Duffy has been charged with 31 offences related to Senate spending. If convicted he faces financial ruin, probably jail time. The prime minister is on record as saying he knew nothing about the secret $90,000 payment from his chief of staff to Duffy.

Is there anyone beyond his immediate family (and possibly Paul Calandra) who still believes that?

HCSH Traitor

What if someone asked a question during a televised debate about the PMO riding herd on an independent audit committee, viewing and altering a report protected by parliamentary privilege before it was published? What if someone asked about that February 22, 2013 meeting with Nigel Wright, where the PM allegedly agreed to make Duffy pay back the money, even though Wright felt that under the rules the senator might not owe it? Is there anyone left alive over voting age in this country who hasn’t heard about Nigel Wright’s infamous “good to go from the PM” email?

And there’s still Senator Pamela Wallin, who has not been charged but who remains under RCMP investigation for expense fraud. Stuck in political and legal purgatory, she’s another Senate pick that Harper has to wear.

Suspended Senator Patrick Brazeau, who now manages a strip club, will be guest referee at a Great North Wrestling match in Ottawa scheduled for May 30, starring ‘Hannibal The Death Dealer’ and ‘Soa (Spirit of Allah) Amin’. Another personal choice of the PM.

Brazeau is facing two trials on personal matters: for assault and sexual assault, and for assault, threats and possession of cocaine. A framed photo of Brazeau, the PM and the alleged victim in this case has been entered into evidence at Brazeau’s ongoing sexual assault trial. The court has set aside 12 days in June for a preliminary trial on Brazeau’s Senate expense charges — the very day that Duffy’s trial is scheduled to resume. That trial could easily run into the fall election.

Former Harper advisor Bruce Carson — already a man with a criminal record before his first day on the job in the PMO — is facing charges for influence peddling related to his work at the University of Calgary. He also will be going to court in the fall on similar charges related to a water purification company whose product he was trying to flog to native bands.

And then there’s Arthur Porter, still fighting extradition from Panama back to Canada on fraud charges related to a Montreal hospital contract with SNC Lavalin. They involve an alleged $22 million in kickbacks to the good doctor and others. (Porter has cancer and has had three months to live … for several years now. The miracle of self-treatment.)

44776_135045803207316_100001056916300_187579_2215423_n

Harper appointed Porter as head of SIRC, the body that oversees CSIS. The passage of Bill C-51 leaves Canada the only nation in the Five Eyes intelligence partnership that does not have parliamentary oversight. If Porter hadn’t been caught, he might still be in charge of the oversight committee monitoring CSIS. Steve the talent scout strikes again.

The Harper team had to put the debate cobra back in the basket in order to avoid to limit the damage from these and other embarrassments. And it’s not like the hits haven’t kept hitting: Take that humiliating security breach while the PM was doing a ‘surprise’ flying tour of the front in Iraq. Despite making journalists sign an agreement stating they would not take photos of special forces soldiers for security reasons, the PMO posted photos showing their faces on 24/7, the government’s nauseous, in-house propaganda site. All marketing, all the time.

Confronted with this bozo rush to make political hay, the PMO said the military vetted the videos before they were published online. It took eight hours for the Nightmare Team to admit the videos were a security breach, to take them down, and to give one of those half-assed non-apologies this government does so well.

The Globe and Mail learned that, contrary to what the PMO said, the Department of National Defence hadn’t screened the videos before they were posted. An honest mistake, or just another reflexive lie from a government that makes it up as it goes along?

Remember, DND had taken the blame for a cabinet-level bungle before. When the mission in Iraq was expanded into Syria, the Harper government claimed that it was because Canada was the only other member of the coalition besides the U.S. with smart bombs. When it turned out everyone had them, Defence Minister Jason Kenney attached the goat horns to the Chief of the Defence Staff, who meekly wore them. Not this time.

Mike Duffy has said that the prime minister didn’t order him to repay the expense money because he owed it: “It’s not about what you did,” Harper said, according to Duffy. “It’s about the perception of what you did that’s created in the media. The rules are inexplicable to our base.”

Steve’s record of misrule is every bit as hard to explain — something that should become crystal clear once he’s forced to answer for it, in public and on camera.

SOLUTIONS to the ROTHSCHILD ZIONIST HOLY ROYAL ROMAN NEW WORLD ORDER Fascist Marxist Dictatorship
and how You and I and Everyone else can DEAL with them and DEFEAT them once and for all

Most of us have heard all about the New World Order by now, made up of the Vatican the Royal Families, the Zionist Rothschild’s – Rockefeller’s, The Black Nobility, The Committee of 300 Families,The Bloodline Families, The Illuminati, Freemason, Super billionaires, and so on. We all no there is Evil people in this world manipulating our every move.  The so Called 1% that rule the other 99%. But What people are asking the most is??? “What can we do about it??? Were do we Start??? They have all the money,the police work for them, or What can I do to stop this evil rape of the world and the enslavement of all its people under a few Super Wealthy Billionaire ‘s “I am only one person”??? Well  we will try to face and answer these very important questions and offer solutions, we the people, can enact and execute on this evil force of Criminals whose crimes go back to almost the beginning of time. There Crimes include the mass murder of millions if not billions of innocent people over the centuries and pretty much any other horrific crime against humanity you can think of they have committed it.We will deal with history from around 1770 onwards…To go back any further in time is to large a duration to explain it all here and this is really about solutions we can all partake in today.

n842660603_2782986_978

We will start with the Zionist(not real Jews The false Jew from the Bible or The Synagogue of Satan) Rothschild-Banker money tentacle of this Pyramid Octopus style Cabal of Criminals, loosely called by some the NEW WORLD ORDER but a more complete name would be; “The ROTHSCHILD ZIONIST HOLY ROYAL ROMAN NEW WORLD ORDER Fascist Marxist Dictatorship”… The first Pope was Caesar Constantine who declared himself Pope Constantine I… Therefore the Pope is really a Caesar… So it’s really “Pope Francis Caesar”but he’s Christ on earth as the Vatican sees it  or Antichrist on earth as others see him.The Vatican was Infiltrated on Two front By the Rothschild Banker and by there  Freemason agents through a Russian Arch Bishop.Then after they arranged the attempted assassination shooting of Pope John Paul II he fell in totally in line with the Cabal after that it is said, and now we have a Jesuit Pope Francis and the Jesuit have very close ties to Zionist Freemasonry. The fact is that the Vatican is now totally complicit with the “ROTHSCHILD ZIONIST HOLY ROYAL ROMAN NEW WORLD ORDER Fascist Marxist Dictatorship”in taking control of the world under There one God LUCIFER The All seeing Eye on the American One Dollar Bill.

The Rothschild Banking Dynasty got its starts around the 1700’s with Lord Mayor Rothschild’s(Quote “Give me control of a nation money supply and I care not who makes its Laws”) and his plan for his five son’s to dominate through the manipulation and deception, buy total control over Money, Media and Military power and how by controlling these key things total world domination would be possible to meet over time.  Over the last century the Rothschild Bankers have deceptively and fraudulently manipulated and gained total control of almost every nations money supply worldwide. There are currently in 2014,  2 -Two countries left in the world without a Rothschild Central Bank running it money supply. When Bush 2 started his Presidency there were 9. Actually G.W.Bush’s “Axis of Evil” was countries without a Rothschild Central Bank.The United States Federal Reserve is an example of a Rothschild Central Bank. Then by also controlling the up & down of the global stock markets they would have total control of the world’s financial system and do!!!. They also used the system to financially back both sides in their fraudulently manipulated and started Wars, Wars (which were all started by the controlled Vatican’s web of Jesuits conspirator-coadjutors and Freemason agents worldwide working indirectly for the Rothschild Bankers so they would then be able to manipulate any Governments or Royalty indebted to them into doing their bidding. This is how they have overthrown all the Royalties and Vatican and Government in the world,  through basic extortion with money that never existed in the first place, and fraudulent compound interest  on fraudulent Government Loans creating BULLSHIT fraudulent Countries National Debt to be paid back with money that never existed because it was never created when the original loans were made so the money supply is always short of money and the respective Governments can never repay it therefore enslaving the entire country under the Rothschild Banksters ownership. All these fraudulent and criminal atrocities were all done over the centuries to slowly profit infiltrate subvert and gain control of a country and then over time control of the fucking world for their Zionist Holy Roman New World Order Empire Fascist Marxist Dictatorship which is now very close to completion.
Every, War, Conflict, Revolutions, Depressions, Uprising, etc. etc.etc.were all manipulated and created by these Criminals to further their global agenda

911-Zionist-job-tiny

The Rothschild’s main weapon today is 1:Crying Antisemitism (cried if anyone accuses them of any crime, fraud or misdeeds… It’s  used to deflect the attention away from their crimes which they never dispute or deny and rather turn all attention onto the shoulders of their accuser for being a racist!!! It works every time and in any countries) 2:Their Media Empire” including all mainstream Television, Radio, Newspapers and Publishing Empires. By owning all the five major media network worldwide, owned directly or indirectly through subsidiaries and corporate conglomerates they control the flow of deceptive information going out to the masses..They then keep us distracted by all the useless sport and stupid shows we watch hypnotically.Yes there are many shows and many voices to be heard but there all coming from the one source one ventriloquist on top of them all .All show need corporate sponsors who support the agenda of the big five and that is why 2/3 of the world goes hungry while they pay billion of dollar sponsorships to sport players to play with their balls… All to keep us distracted from important issues.Like to pass the Patriot act to limit your Civil Right and Freedom. It is one big huge monopoly owned by the Rothschild ,Rockefeller s,JP Morgan and Oppenheimer Brotherhood.Control over the Internet, Publishing, Recording, Cable and Satellite companies can all be traced back to the same big five media Empires: General Electric, Time Warner, Viacom, Disney, News Corp.They now have the power to make or break political leaders around the globe.

This UNELECTED Zionist Holy Royal Roman New World Order Empire  of Super Rich Billionaire’s as well all get together to decide our fate on Planet Earth on a daily basis and all that gives them this power is the paper money they counterfeit and create out of thin air. Then they loan it out with compound interest repayment to almost all governments worldwide and the Truth is that this paper money is really worth NOTHING… NOTHING at ALL… Unless of course we the common citizens of the world give it value, And we all have given it value so far… As we have all been blinded and deceived by this criminal fraud counterfeiting scheme through lies and deceptions perpetrated on us by ours own supposedly elected puppet government officials and mainstream Media Liars. These Super Billionaires hire Puppet Millionaire CEO’s to run there central banks for them then to lend $$$ to our puppet governments officials, this is done with the promise that the country will repay it with all the Taxes collected every year from you and me the 99%… Again, ALL THE TAXES not some ALL. This is the collateral demanded by the Central Bankers to get the loans in the first place. This is why our governments no matter which parties are in power are always raising and inventing new taxes to collect from the citizen’s. As these loans with compound interest tack on them are loans that can never be totally repaid. Once the country is in debt it is always in a perpetual debt circle to these Central Banks forever. Because then when the government needs money say for road repair or hospitals or whatever else it requires it for and we the people of that country thinks our taxes cover this nothing could be farther from the truth, as the government then has to go again to the same bankers for more loans and more compound interest to use to fix the road or hospitals or whatever… Hence our increasing humongous National Debt…

bankers

This Cabal of Super Billionaires Criminals hire more Criminal Puppet Millionaire to do all there criminal dirty work for them as well and this way they remain hidden out of sight and safe from repercussion and criminal prosecution by society in general
So lets say your country defaults on its loan payment or just decides to say FU to the bankers as did Saddam Hussein Well we all saw what happened to Saddam Hussein.  First they try to make a deal with the government in question to acquire special privileged or to change country laws in their favor or to rob  the natural resources of that country for way less than its is really worth on the world market then they will lend them more loan that they know this time cannot be repaid by the country and then they go through more demand for resources which usually is what they really wanted in the first place…Then when the country finally realizes what has happened to them and what is really going on and says FUCK YOU to repaying these criminal banker thief.  Step two of the bankers extortion goes into effect and they send in black op to subvert and start a pro democracy revolution between the common people to overthrow the leaders who figured out they were stealing their country. Them If that doesn’t work they use the last and final solution they prove Militarily attacking the country for some made up reason like they did with Iraq and Saddam. But most countries leaders bow down long before step three and usually become complicit and in league with the rape and robbery of their countries natural resources from the people of that country… A good example is the Shaw of Iran or Ferdinand Marcos of the Philippines or Manuel  Noriega of Panama all at one time good friends of the USA

It’s like a big game of Monopoly to them and their the Bankers and when they do not like the rules they simply change them to suit them. So what can we do??? Well first off we have to look at what there fears are.In reality 1% of the world population of over 6.5 Billion people are controlling the other 99% of us.That 1% own the world banks, and most of the world’s wealth, land and its resources.So why do the rest of us passively cooperate with this madness. Because that wealthy 1% that write the rule has taught the rest of us 99% to obey them and feel powerless to change things.When we feel powerless to change things we cling to passive attitudes and let them get away with murder, plunder, counterfeiting, extortion etc.etc.etc.  the worst atrocity crimes imaginable. When human being feel powerless we say things like “That’s just the way it is or Ignorance is bliss or Things aren’t that bad or Let God take care of it. Remember “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good people to do nothing” and that is exactly what is happening in today’s world. Despite all the red flags many people still denies these problems even exist they have the” Hear no Evil See no Evil Speak no Evil” attitude. But as we said before there is solution to this evil problem. Remember also “You will live under the amount of Tyranny you put up with” and tyranny in today world is becoming more and more clear each day now.

We must say NO more to them and right away… We can defeat them. It lies in knowing what their three biggest fears are and how we can control these ruling families through their fears. Their biggest fear is EXPOSURE or being dragged out in the open for all to see in the light of truth. First off the Vatican powers believe most people think of them, The Vatican & Roman Catholic Religion as pure white & clean and as honest as God himself and could never be part of such an Evil plan let alone be its controllers But they are…  Another good example is the Bilderberg’s group. Their meeting are secret their attendees are secret It’s all held behind closed doors and they always demand media black outs why EXPOSURE as well .They have gone to great length to cover up their trail of horrific disgusting crimes and to win the public’s trust through their media monopolies…Without public trust their ancestral plan for world domination is doomed to failure. The second biggest fear is losing PUBLIC SUPPORT. If we the public stop cooperating with their bullshit their plan is doomed to fail.If all the Catholics worldwide were to turn away from the Vatican and Catholic Religion tomorrow!!! Tomorrow the Vatican would be powerless rich as hell grant-it but powerless all the same…  There third and biggest fear by all is ORGANIZED RESISTANCE by an informed and fearless public who would and surely should hang them all by there scrawny cowardly necks until they are all dead…The wealthy Vatican hierarchy and all there cowardly pedophile priest, the royalties and the rest of the Elite ruling families no from experience that the will of the people can defeat all there military and monetary might in a second flat.Vietnam is a perfect example of this as they wanted that war to go on and on forever, but the American public said no more and it stopped that fast. ORGANIZED RESISTANCE. There is no doubt at all that these ruling families can be totally defeated by bringing there worst fears into reality.

Here are 14 of the best SOLUTIONS to act on IMMEDIATELY to take back our beautiful world from them, to change it for the better for all humanity forever!!!  And to never ever again let a few Evil elite billionaires control the many again. The time is now to ACT and ACT we must… If not they shall surely meet their New World Order Hell on Earth for Mankind or what is left of humanity after there first order of business the culling of 90% of us.

Solution # 1
EXPOSE THE 300 SCUM BALL FAMILIES Is to expose these ruling Families and their generation of horrific crimes against humanity.The most powerful way is by communicating by word of mouth telling friends and other through the internet on websites and study groups.Design a webpage of network such as this one, to Share pictures and article and videos, films and DVDs.Raise money give money to organize lobbied do whatever you can to stop this insane madness there are perpetrating on us.Citizen worldwide learned a hard lesson that peaceful public protests do not work because the Committee of 300 families created Think Tanks like The Trilateral Commission, Council on Foreign Relations, The Bilderberg Group, The Club of Rome, The United Nations, The Round Table etc.to mastermind their plan for world domination and control.We as citizen have to form also our own think tank to mastermind a plan to stop them.We have to learn who the past and present members of the committee of 300 are.At the top of the list are: The Royal Families of Britain and Denmark, The International Banking Families: Rothschild (Evelyn, David), Rockefeller(David), Morgan(Jon Paul), Warburg (Paul, Max, Felix), Oppenheimer(Harry), Bush (Samuel, Prescott, George H.W., George W.Jeb), Gore (Ormsby, Al), Kissinger(Henry), Buffet(Warren), Carrington(Lord), Constanti(House of Orange), House of Hapsburg, Russell(Bertrand), Turner(Ted), Strong(Maurice), Schroeder(Andrew), Baring(Barnato), Prise Waterhouse, Astor(Lord), Churchill(Winston), Delano(Marquis Charles Louis), Harriman(Averil), Hesse(Sir William), House(Colonel Mandell), Huxley(Aldous), Mazzini(Giuseppe), Mellon Scaiffe(Richard), Mitterand(Francois), Montague(Samual), Montefiore(Lord Sebag), Paley(J.P.W.), David-Weill(David), Pearson(Lord Cowdrey), Bundy Bloodline, Collins Bloodline, DuPont Bloodline, Freeman Bloodline, Kennedy Bloodline, Li Bloodline, Onassis Bloodline, Reynolds Bloodline, Van Duyn Bloodline, Merovingian Bloodline, Disney bloodline, Krupp bloodline, McDonald bloodline, ETC.ETC.ETC. and the list goes on and on, but these are the major players of the Black Nobility or Committee of 300 Families get to know them and know them well for their Families crimes are some of the Worst most Horrific Genocide crimes in History

TAKE BACK CONTROL OF YOUR MONEY Is to take back control of your own money.Right now your money is in the banks of these  families.Long ago the bankers discovered that most people left most of their gold in their bank for safe keeping, they discovered that they could lend out other people’s gold and charge interest on it without being discovered.Soon King and Royalty were borrowing money from them to finances wars. They then found out that backing both side during conflict was very profitable.This made them very rich.Since Wars were very good for business bankers started stirring up wars. All war since the Napoleonic war were started by these  bankers.They financed both sides and this is how they stole the bank of England and so on.Eventually they got so rich they built banks all over the world They made Billions lending out other people money at huge interest rates, from remember money that did not belong to them in the first place.Royalty became their biggest customers and they rewarded the bankers with high society titles of nobility such as Lord, Baron and Sir.Using there blood money and royal influence they changed the laws of nations so they could put central banks, mint and money supply in there private hands.Out of every $1000 of other people money they kept only $100 in their bank and lent out the rest at interest.then with the money they made they started up other businesses like the steel business to build rail for their Railway companies to transport Oil for their oil companies.Pretty soon the banksters new businesses grew into giant corporations.

Those giant corporation soon turned the world oceans lakes and rivers into giant toilets exploiting every resource on the planet for their own greedy benefit.Profit from all this made them the world richest families but their greed did not stop there.This is when they fomented their plan to rule the entire globe They told people they know longer had to save up for all the things they wanted they created shiny plastic cards and people could buy things at interest putting everyone in the world in debt to them. For whoever owns all the world money owns the world.Soon people did not even realize there pay check was being put in the bank without ever being cashed.There plan is to abolish paper money all together and finally to replace it with the RFID chip Then they would control all. If you got out of hand or disobeyed there rules they would just simply turn off your chip and by this they would control every aspect of your life from cradle to grave. People believe their money is safe in these bank It is not.The banksters created the great depression and are on the verge of doing it again They are in total control with everything that happens on the stock market they decided if the markets go up or down, soars or crashes, the control the price of gold ,oil etc.But you ask why would they want to crash the markets, simple to destroy people confidence in the money supply and create a cash less society and to force people cooperation into their fascist one world government-run by them.According to the Zionist plan written by Adam Weistaupt and Albert Pike the ruling families will bankrupt the middle class and repossess their private property, they will reinstate the military draft and continue disarming nations until there is no one left to disarm.They will make it illegal to have a firearm or any other weapon that could be used to resist them.when the crash does come they will blame it on the phony war on terror which they control and finance on both sides

So what can you do before the banksters phase out money all together and crash the system. If you have money in one of their Banks Withdraw It Immediately By putting your money in their bank you are enriching and empowering them with control over your money and pretty soon over your life.Cut up your credit and debit cards.Pay only with cash or money order or certified cheque.Take all your money out of the rigged stock markets.Cash in your treasury bill and bonds and retirement savings plans.most of the retirement funds have already been looted.Trade in your paper fiat currency for something of real value such as gold silver precious metals and buy yourself a fire-proof safe and keep it all hidden.It not the thief down the block you should be worrying about It the  banksters Many people are under the impression is a government agency and that the government print their money it the private banksters that print it with there Evil Masonic symbols on it shows you who own it THEM.If you think you own your car, your house or other credit purchases a financial crash will remind you of just who exactly own it.Most people believe there hard-earned tax dollar goes to pay for stuff like roads bridge and other public services and so on but this is not the case the truth is all of it every penny goes to pay the National debt the government owes these banksters then they lend your hard-earned tax money back to the government at interest to finances these public services.Before the bombing, theft and destruction of Iraq every American citizen owed the banksters $70,000 per citizen.It is you’re skyrocketing debt and your nations skyrocketing debt to the banksters that helped them enslave the world and there doing it with your money, your labor and your approval.Since these families hide their money and do not pay any taxes!!! Why should you… Avoid paying any taxes you can.The banksters game is taking your money in taxes and lending it back to you at interest IF YOUR NOT MAD YET YOU SHOULD BE…So what do these banksters do with all your money you ask.They bomb, rob, kill, colonize, exploit all to advance there cause of Global control and for your eventual total enslavement ARE YOU MAD NOW…

Most soldiers are naive broke out of work teenager who are romantically duped into believing they are heroes for fighting for freedom.But really what they’re fighting for are the 300 wealthy families who are systematically disarming the world of all weapons of resistance to their Global empire…

STOP VOTING IN THERE DEFACTO ELECTIONS A fourth solution is to stop voting.Most countries only really have two parties one candidate for the rich and one candidate for the even richer.It really doesn’t matter who you vote for as they are really just paid puppet actors doing the bidding of the ruling families Because both candidates are sponsored by the lobby groups of these ruling scum balls. Most people will say it is better to pick the lesser of two evil but they are still voting for the same evil and supporting a corrupt electoral system.Remember that both John Kerry and George W. Bush both swore an allegiance to SKULL & BONES long before they ever swore allegiance to the American people so it really did not matter who won even though it was determined long before the vote and even then you had to wonder who their true allegiance was to…Not only were they both Skull and Bones  who is rooted in German Freemasonry but they are both descendent to the British Royalty, The Black Nobility and the Hebrew Tribes of Israel

CANADA’s MONEY PROBLEM Who Changed The Bank Of Canada’s Policies In 1974 And Why?

CANADA’s MONEY PROBLEM
Who Changed The Bank Of Canada’s Policies In 1974 And Why?

April 5th, 2012

With great efforts by the Canadian Action Party, institutions like COMER, and a host of alternative news outlets in Canada. Many Canadians are becoming more and more aware about the the biggest robbery in Canadian history. A robbery that still continues to this very day, with 170 million dollars being stolen from us everyday.

The crime has been and is being perpetrated right under our very noses. It lies in the creation of the Canadian dollar. For those of you who are still unaware of this crime, here is a great video explaining the robbery.

Over the past 4 years, the Canadian people have paid $137.4 billion in interest on money borrowed from private banks whereas the Bank of Canada could legally print the public’s money into existence rather than borrowing it at interest. “They’ve paid out this huge sum because our government has failed to abide by the law.” Abram, a retired high school teacher and activist on Vancouver Island, B.C., explicates the trick of fractional reserve banking (part 1 of a series; snowshoefilms yoryevrah

COMER – Committee on Monetary and Economic Reform, in 2011 filed a lawsuit against the Bank Of Canada and the finance minister.

Rocco Galati explains the lawsuit against the Bank Of Canada and the Finance minister. Apologies for video quality and shakiness, When I got there and started setting up the camera, it literally died [not the battery but the camera itself] right there on the spot. Got what I could on cell phone camera. Full press release: Canadian constitutional lawyer, Rocco Galati, on behalf of Canadians William Krehm, and Ann Emmett, and COMER (Committee for Monetary and Economic Reform) on December 12th, 2011 filed an action in Federal Court, to restore the use of the Bank of Canada to its original purpose, by exercising its public statutory duty and responsibility. That purpose includes making interest free loans to municipal/provincial/federal governments for “human capital” expenditures (education, health, other social services) and /or infrastructure expenditures. The action also constitutionally challenges the government’s fallacious accounting methods in its tabling of the budget by not calculating nor revealing the true and total revenues of the nation before transferring back “tax credits” to corporations and other taxpayers. The Plaintiffs state that since 1974 there has been a gradual but sure slide into the reality that the Bank of Canada and Canada’s monetary and financial policy are dictated by private foreign banks and financial interests contrary to the Bank of Canada Act. The Plaintiffs state that the Bank of International Settlements (BIS), the Financial Stability Forum (FSF) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) were all created with the cognizant intent of keeping poorer nations in their place which has now expanded to all nations in that these financial institutions largely succeed in over-riding governments and constitutional orders in countries such as Canada over which they exert financial control. The Plaintiffs state that the meetings of the BIS and Financial Stability Board (FSB) (successor of FSF), their minutes, their discussions and deliberations are secret and not available nor accountable to Parliament, the executive, nor the Canadian public notwithstanding that the Bank of Canada policies directly emanate from these meetings. These organizations are essentially private, foreign entities controlling Canada’s banking system and socio-economic policies. The Plaintiffs state that the defendants (officials) are unwittingly and /or wittingly, in varying degrees, knowledge and intent engaged in a conspiracy, along with the BIS, FSB, IMF to render impotent the Bank of Canada Act as well as Canadian sovereignty over financial, monetary, and socio-economic policy, and bypass the sovereign rule of Canada through its Parliament by means of banking and financial systems.

One of the biggest questions I encounter when talking about restoring the Bank of Canada, is who changed the policy in 1974? And who is responsible for the billion dollar robbery since then?

First we must look at who was in political power at the time and who held the key positions.

Prime Minister: Pierre Trudeau
Minister of Finance: John Turner
Governor of the Bank of Canada: Gerald Bouey

Pierre Elliot Trudeau, like many other Canadian prime ministers attended the Bilderberg group meetings before being elected. Trudeau also served in the mid-1990s on Power Corp.’s international advisory board.

Gerald Bouey was a member of David Rockefeller’s Trilateral Commission. Rockefeller is also a chairman of the Bilderberg group.

Both the trilateral commission and Bilderberg group are very well known for promoting a global government or what others have called a “new world order”.

“Some even believe we (the Rockefeller family) are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”
– David Rockefeller, Memoirs, page 405

David Rockefeller Sept. 23, 1994 “This present window of opportunity, during which a truly peaceful and interdependent world order might be built, will not be open for too long — We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order.”

With everyday that passes a global economic collapse seems to be only a matter of time. Mainly due to the massive amounts of debt. Could this be the the right major crisis that he spoke of?

Because of the changes to the Bank of Canada in 1974 our national debt has skyrocketed from 18 billion to nearly 600 billion. Which is owed to private banks like CIBC, TD Bank, the Royal bank, and Scotia bank. Everyone of these banks have Bilderberg attendee’s on a regular basis.

And secondly, what was the reasoning for the change in policy?

The change in policy came, to help the Canadian economy recover from what the government billed as a major recession. When in reality the recession was small at best, as seen in this graph.

As the figure shows, Canada had two very deep and prolonged recessions from 1961 to 2007 and a third that began in 2008 (the broken line represents my forecast to 2010).
Source

So to put it simply. The changes to the Bank of Canada where made under the false pretenses of a major recession. By a group of globalist who openly admit their goals of creating a one world government.

Why hasn’t the media reported on this?

Why would Bilderberg members report on themselves? Peter Mansbridge and countless others in Canadian media have attended Bilderberg.

And as David Rockefeller was quoted in 1991 about American media:

“We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years.”

It seems that even until this very day, Canadian media are remaining silent on the issue. I have been sending the video of the lawsuit against the Bank of Canada to all of the main stream outlets repeatedly for months. But have not even received a email response back yet. I have also sent it to MP’s from every party. Same thing, zero responses.

Politicians routinely laugh at the idea of restoring the Bank of Canada, and label those who raise questions as “conspiracy theorists”.

A friend of mine, Jamie Scott in British Columbia got the oppertunity to meet the new leader of the NDP Thomas Mulcaire today, and asked him about the debt-based monetary system. Here is what was said.

I asked him about the Debt-Based Monetary System.

“I have not studied that, no”. He says the idea that the chartered banks being able to create currency through loans is “conspiracy theory” and told me if I wanted the Bank of Canada to issue all our loot to “go start your own party”

I kept peppering him and the crowd turned on me quick. He said, “Excuse me, but I was a Finance Minister in Quebec for 5 years” (cheers) to which I said “then its all the more startling that you have no idea what I’m talking about.” Boos (jeers?) then rained down.
He said “I’m the only one who will stand up to Stephen Harper”. I said ‘big deal. That’s not hard. He’s a weak, unpopular leader with a fake majority. Anyone can stand up to Steve. We need someone who will stand up to the banks.

“Go start your own party then.”

Please watch this video to find out who Jamie Scott is.

The bought and paid for media, and politicians in Canada are not going to correct this problem. They are part of it. We the Canadian people MUST take action now, or forever be indebted to the global bankers and loose what little sovereignty we have left.

Stephen Harper said the true reality that we face, at the Toronto G20 in 2010!

” I know some people don’t like it. It is a loss of national sovereignty, but it is reality.”

“As I constantly remind Canadians, there isn’t really a Canadian economy anymore. It is a global economy.”

Stephen Harper at a news conference in Toronto. At the end of the G20 summit. Here are the two quotes Harper should be remembered by: ” I know some people don’t like it. It is a loss of national sovereignty, but it is reality.” “As I constantly remind Canadians, there isnt really a Canadian economy anymore. It is a global economy.”

BY THESE SCUMSLIME PRIVATE BANKERS

THE SUPER WEALTHY CANADIAN ELITES, THE POLITICIANS, THE CIBC, TD BANK, ROYAL BANK, and SCOTIA BANK are all subservient paid puppet criminals of the IMF, THE WORLD BANK, all under THE ROTHSCHILD DYNASTY of the GLOBAL CRIMINAL BANKER CABAL

There Criminal Currency is called FIAT CURRENCY It is used in every country under the IMF-World Bank System of the Cabal

FIAT Currency Is a Debt Based Currency

All It creates is Debt,Debt,and more Debt

Hence Canada’s Skyrocketing Debt to which we have never defaulted on but instead of our national debt going down it just keeps going up

It’s a Debt that can never be fully repaid. Why because when new money-debt is created into the system through LOANS-Debt the interest on that Debt-Loans is not created and therefore leaving the money system always short on cash.

ARE YOU MAD YET???

Lets investigate FIAT CURRENCY and see it for what it is a Complete FRAUD

FIAT CURRENCY and FRACTIONAL RESERVE BANKING go hand in hand and are both Criminal one is basically a PYRAMID SCHEME and the other COUNTERFEITING.

15 Fundamental Problems with Fiat Currencies

BY RON HERA03/26/2012
Value Subjectivism and Monetary Instability

Subjectivism is the philosophy that reality is what we perceive to be real and that no underlying, true reality exists independent of human perception. In other words, the nature of reality for an individual person is dependent on that individual’s own consciousness. It follows that each person experiences their own reality that is not shared with others. What is true and what seems moral to one person may not be true or moral for another person, i.e., truth and morality are relative. In contrast, objectivism is the philosophy that reality exists independent of human consciousness; that human beings have direct contact with reality through sense perception; and that objective knowledge of reality can be obtained through perception, evidence and logic, e.g., through scientific methods.

A subjectivist might view the stock market as a perpetual bubble floating on the hopes and dreams of entrepreneurs and investors who invest in stocks in the same way that gamblers place chips on a craps table in a casino, without any concept of an objective economic reality outside of the game. A subjectivist might view technical analysis, which is based purely on trading activity in the stock market, as the ideal tool to understand financial markets, despite the fact that is has no direct connection to the objective economic realities of the companies that stocks represent. In contrast, an objectivist might view the stock market as a venue for participation in business ownership where stocks have value as a function of the particular businesses that they represent and because of the goods and services that the businesses provide in the objective world. A subjectivist might say that “everything is relative” (although the statement is self contradictory), while an objectivist might say that they “…believe in justification, not by faith, but by verification” (Thomas H. Huxley 1825-1895). Although they may not know it, Keynesian economists, bankers and day traders are often philosophical subjectivists while Austrian economists, advocates of the gold standard and value investors are often philosophical objectivists.

An objectivist interpretation of morality is that morality flows naturally from people pursuing their own interests and that immorality results from coercion. For the vast majority of individuals, “self interest” includes supporting their own family and community, simply because human beings are social animals. Parents naturally care for their own children, for example. Morality is a natural phenomenon, not a product of coercion. Human beings naturally live peacefully together in communities and the vast majority of individuals experience empathy. Both charity and resistance to coercion occur naturally and voluntarily in human communities. Those who do not experience empathy (sociopaths) and who disregard the interests of their fellow human beings or act in ways that harm the community are extremely rare. Philosopher Ayn Rand wrote “Force and mind are opposites; morality ends where a gun begins.” Human beings do not act morally because they are being watched by police or because a gun is held to their heads. In all cultures and at all times and places throughout recorded history, and certainly before, what is immoral is initiating violent force or coercion without cause, most especially when it harms the community. Although particular rules vary from one culture to another, morality is neither subjective nor relative.

Ironically, the objectivist view of morality has been widely misconstrued as a sanction for selfishness. Selfishness typically results in the deprivation or coercion of others. In contrast, pursuing their own self interest is what human beings naturally and voluntarily do in the absence of coercion. In fact, the idea that what is moral arises in a natural way based on the freedom to pursue one’s own self interest, i.e., freedom from coercion, is precisely the moral doctrine of the 1776 American Declaration of Independence:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Where money is concerned, there are two fundamentally different concepts of “value”, one rooted in subjectivism and one rooted in objectivism. In a monetary context, value subjectivism means that money has value simply because people believe that it does and that whatever people can be persuaded or coerced into using as money, such as a piece of paper bearing a government stamp, therefore has “value”. In other words, value subjectivism is the view that the only “value” that exists resides in the minds of human beings as a concept or belief and that, therefore, “value” can be created ex nihilo by persuasion or coercion, i.e., by influencing or controlling (through coercion or fear of coercion) the minds of human beings. Value objectivism means that money has value because it contains the resources and labor required to produce it in the same way that clothing or shelter have value for the survival requirements of human life.

Of course, subjective value, e.g., the value of a Picasso painting to an art lover, does indeed exist but it is different in kind compared to value linked to biological survival (literally, life and death). The former refers to subjective mental states, while the latter refers to an objective biological reality that exists independent of human consciousness. Residents of the Warsaw Ghetto in 1943, for example, didn’t value guns in the same way they valued Picasso paintings. Generally, a product of human labor that has real-world utility, such as a physical tool, will be recognized by human beings as having value relative to the material needs and survival requirements of human life. This “survival value” is absolutely pragmatic and is rooted in the natural understanding that human beings have about their biological needs and their physical relationship to the objective world.

Commodity money comes about in a natural and voluntary way and does not depend on governments or banks. Natural money develops wherever and whenever human beings obtain things that they do not strictly need purely for the purpose of exchanging them for something else. The good most commonly used as a tool of exchange is de facto money. The Greek philosopher Aristotle first defined the characteristics of a commodity that can be used as money as (1) divisibility, (2) durability, (3) portability and (4) scarcity, i.e., rare and valuable. More recently, money has been described as a medium of exchange, a unit of account, e.g., a standard weight of gold or silver, and a store of value. Of course, money must also be widely accepted, which can be accomplished either through natural forces or through coercion.

The supply of commodity money naturally remains constrained in proportion to the production of other goods. The resources and labor required to produce natural commodity money exist in relation to other economic resources needed for the survival requirements of human life. Production of commodity money subtracts resources that have direct survival value from other economic activities. Therefore, the law that regulates the production of commodity money is the law of survival. The law of survival is not a proscriptive law (declared by a human authority) but a descriptive law based on observation. The production of commodity money is regulated automatically according to the biological needs of human beings. Thus, commodity money is tightly coupled or “tethered” to physical economic activity in the objective world in the same way as building shelter. Human beings very rarely build more shelter than they need because the economic inputs required to do so are better spent elsewhere once sufficient shelter exists. The price mechanism in modern economics is a reflection of this underlying reality.

While it is commonly believed that any token can be used as money, this refers only to the medium of exchange, i.e., currency. Currency is precisely a “money substitute”, which is a convenience, but is not, strictly speaking, money. Land deeds, for example, can circulate as a currency but they are not the land itself. Creating more currency units in a vacuum, in this case un-backed “land deeds” with no land attached, does not create more land or any other form of wealth in the objective world even if it increases the number of transactions and the size of the economy measured in “land deeds”.

Throughout history, schemes have been attempted whereby currencies that cost virtually nothing to produce, and that have no survival value, have been substituted for commodity money. Artificial money, known as ‘fiat currency’ has putative “value” simply because it is declared to have a value by a government or central bank. Fiat currency schemes replace the survival value of commodity money with subjective value and substitute a mere medium of exchange for natural commodity money. Modern currencies, including the U.S. dollar, the British pound, the euro and the Japanese yen, are all fiat currency schemes. As a practical matter, a fiat currency unit is worth whatever it can purchase but it is not a standard by which value can be measured because its purchasing power is unstable. In fact, there are several fundamental problems with fiat currencies.

1. There Is No Spoon – In the popular 1999 film The Matrix, written by Lana and Andy Wachowski (“The Wachowski Brothers”), the protagonist, Neo, has the following conversation with a gifted child who can bend spoons with his mind:

Child: Do not try and bend the spoon. That’s impossible. Instead… only try to realize the truth.

Neo: What truth?

Child: There is no spoon.

Neo: There is no spoon?

Child: Then you’ll see, that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself.

There is a difference between an abstraction and an abstract concept. “Money” is an abstraction in the same way that “container” encompasses both a bottle and a jar. Abstractions are artifacts of language that generally describe the world. In contrast, an abstract concept is the mental representation of an idea, such as liberty. Abstract concepts are literally ideas that exist in the human mind. Law, for example, expresses the concept of justice but an arbitrary law is not just merely because it is law. Unjust laws certainly exist. Declaring that a stone is a seafaring vessel does not imbue it with the ability to float on water, even if it can skip on the surface if it has enough spin. Such a declaration would be an illogical misuse of language masking an obvious absurdity. Nonetheless, the same obvious absurdity underlies fiat currencies. The erroneous conflation of “money”, which is an abstraction, and “value”, which is an abstract concept, is an example of sophistry; a trick of words played on unsophisticated minds. In fact, fiat currencies which exist today, not principally as notes or coins, but as electronic digits in computers, have no value.

2. Coercion – Coercion characterizes fiat currencies because most people would not accept them unless forced to do so against their will. In the United States, for example, the replacement of gold-backed money in 1933 required the use of legal force (criminal penalties of $10,000, ten years in prison, or both) to compel U.S. citizens to accept irredeemable Federal Reserve Notes in place of gold certificates.

3. Rent Seeking – Fiat currency schemes extract economic rents by forcing commerce to take place in the fiat currency system. Since human beings trade with one another to survive, the ability to freely exchange value for value is a natural right having the same moral foundation as the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. In a marketplace based on voluntary arrangements, there is no middleman extracting an economic rent in exchange for permission to participate in commerce.

4. Immorality – Fiat currency schemes are immoral because the primary thing that makes them acceptable is coercion. Forcing people to accept artificial money that has no objective value against their will and self interest is an immoral act. Additionally, fiat currency schemes allow those who control the currency to redistribute wealth by altering the availability, quantity and distribution of the currency, which is little more than legalized theft.

5. Central Planning – Since fiat currencies are based on coercive, rather than voluntary market relationships, a central authority is required that has the power to eliminate competing currencies, i.e., to establish a monopoly. Central economic planning is not only anti-democratic and the antithesis of a free market, but also inevitably fails. Human society is not blessed with the omniscient and infallible individuals required to make financial and economic decisions in place of the decisions of millions of individuals, households, entrepreneurs and businesses. The record of history, e.g., the USSR, is absolutely clear. Central planning of an economy produces a never ending stream of unintended consequences that lead to never ending interventions and that ultimately destroy economic activity.

6. Price Instability – Fiat currencies, because they require relatively insignificant physical economic inputs, have no direct relationship to the survival requirements of human life. Since it is decided by central planners, the quantity of currency in a fiat currency scheme is always and inevitably incorrect. This causes price instability and artificially stimulates or depresses economic activity as a function of how much currency is produced and of how it is distributed. As a practical matter, price stability can never be achieved in a fiat currency scheme.

7. Economic Volatility – Since fiat currencies are loosely coupled to physical economic activity in the objective world, they tend to become increasingly de-coupled and eventually “un-tethered” over time. An economy is the aggregate of millions of independent, individual human actors and there is no way that those responsible for a fiat currency can guess the correct quantity, although they can recognize incorrect quantities after the fact by their consequences, e.g., credit booms, recessions, large-scale price bubbles and economic collapses, such as the Great Depression, which began only sixteen years after the U.S. Federal Reserve was established. Of course, economies can be volatile for many reasons. The effect of fiat currencies, however, is to greatly magnify economic volatility.

8. Currency Debasement – Voltaire famously wrote that “Paper money eventually returns to its intrinsic value—zero.” Fiat currencies issued by governments or central banks represent intangible, subjective concepts of value like “full faith and credit” but the currency itself has no lasting value. Specifically, fiat currencies have a built-in tendency to decline in purchasing power over time as more currency is produced, particularly in fractional reserve and debt-based fiat currency schemes. In debt-based fiat currency schemes, the currency must be constantly inflated or a deflationary vicious circle (a collapse of debt) will set in. Those responsible for the currency predictably produce more than is necessary to maintain stable prices or to sustain stable economic activity, e.g., to diminish the risk of deflation, for political promises and favors, to wage war, etc. Price instability and economic volatility are the result. Currency debasement eventually undermines the basic economic structure of society. In The Economic Consequences of the Peace (1919), John Maynard Keynes wrote:

“Lenin was certainly right. There is no subtler, no surer means of overturning the existing basis of society than to debauch the currency. The process engages all the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and does it in a manner which not one man in a million is able to diagnose.”

9. Wealth Redistribution – Arbitrarily increasing the quantity of currency in an economy distorts the distribution of money and, therefore, redistributes purchasing power, effectively stealing wealth from the majority, e.g., savers and wage workers, to serve the interests of a privileged minority. Redistribution of wealth, as opposed to production of wealth, causes a net loss of wealth to society. Government deficit spending, although it may be motivated by good intentions, changes the quantity of currency and results in currency debasement. Thus, government deficit spending operates as a dishonest, hidden tax on savers and wage workers. In his well known 1966 essay, Gold and Economic Freedom, former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan, wrote:

“Deficit spending is simply a scheme for the confiscation of wealth. Gold stands in the way of this insidious process. It stands as a protector of property rights. If one grasps this, one has no difficulty in understanding the statists’ antagonism toward the gold standard.”

10. Concentration of Wealth – Over time, fiat currency schemes cause wealth and property to accrue to those who enjoy the extraordinary privilege of creating the currency, thus increasing the concentration of wealth in society. Extreme concentration of wealth is economically and ultimately politically destabilizing. An individual with a one million dollar income, for example, will not buy as many consumer products, cars or appliances as ten households with incomes of one hundred thousand dollars. In his remarks at a symposium sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City in Jackson Hole, Wyoming (August 28, 1998), then Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan pointed out that:

“Ultimately, we are interested in the question of relative standards of living and economic well-being. Thus, we need also to examine trends in the distribution of wealth, which, more fundamentally than earnings or income, represents a measure of the ability of households to consume…”

11. Moral Hazard – Baron Acton observed in 1887 that “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” Since fiat currencies are created by monetary monopolies ex nihilo, e.g., through loan contracts, they provide a legal means of obtaining something for virtually nothing. As a result, those responsible for fiat currencies enjoy almost unlimited influence over economic and, therefore, political life. Sadly, human beings can never be good stewards of a currency system that provides one group in society with the means to obtain something for nothing. In fact, societies dominated by immoral fiat currency schemes eventually develop a something-for-nothing culture; a culture of entitlement in which, rather than producing wealth, everyone endeavors to live at the expense of everyone else.

12. Corruption and Cronyism – As a consequence of moral hazard, fiat currencies tend to encourage cronyism and corruption and ultimately produce a culture of corruption. The Roman poet Juvenal wrote “Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?” (“Who will guard the guards themselves?”). History is replete with the horrors of absolute power and with monetary abuses resulting in economic collapse. Just as democide has been a leading cause of death in the last one hundred years, fiat currencies have been a leading cause of poverty. Fiat currency schemes redistribute and concentrate wealth, resulting in a tiny and exceedingly wealthy minority, but they do not produce wealth. Francisco d’Anconia, one of the central characters in the novel Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand, explains the following in his famous “money speech”:

“…Money is a tool of exchange, which can’t exist unless there are goods produced and men able to produce them. Money is the material shape of the principle that men who wish to deal with one another must deal by trade and give value for value. Money is not the tool of the moochers, who claim your product by tears, or the looters who take it from you by force. Money is made possible only by the men who produce… Not an ocean of tears nor all the guns in the world can transform those pieces of paper in your wallet into bread you need to survive tomorrow… Whenever destroyers appear among men, they start by destroying money, for money is men’s protection and the base of a moral existence. Destroyers seize gold and leave its owners a counterfeit pile of paper. This kills all objective standards and delivers men into the arbitrary power of an arbitrary setter of values… Paper is a mortgage on wealth that does not exist, backed by a gun aimed at those who are expected to produce it. Paper is a check drawn by legal looters upon an account which is not theirs: upon the virtue of the victims…”

13. Confidence Failure – Since the value of fiat currencies is essentially subjective, maintaining the perception of “value” in the face of economic decline and despite rising prices can be challenging. Fiat currencies are ultimately dependent on confidence and trust in those responsible for the currency. When fiat currencies are abused, confidence fails and they revert to their intrinsic value (zero). Thus, monetary policy in a fiat currency scheme focuses directly on maintaining confidence. Behavioral economics, for example, has become a primary tool of monetary and economic policy implementation. As a consequence, economic reporting by governments and central banks, and by the news media, does not reflect an objective viewpoint. Management of perception has the effect of influencing the subjective mental states of those who use a particular fiat currency so as to maintain the perception of “value”. However, in the best case, perception management is one-sided “spin”, and, in the worst case, it is propaganda that is contrary to fact and that simply prevents ordinary people from recognizing the steps they need to take in order to protect their financial interests against currency debasement and other risks associated with fiat currencies. Nonetheless, cognitive dissonance (a psychological tension between conflicting cognitions) can result in the sudden collapse of fiat currencies when economic conditions deteriorate sufficiently or when prices rise too quickly, i.e., the spell of value subjectivism is broken.

14. Counterparty Risk – The “value” of fiat currencies requires trust in counterparties, but trust, like confidence, is an ephemeral, subjective mental state. In the objective world, agreements between governments and central banks and those who rely on their fiat currency schemes can be arbitrarily modified or broken. In fact, they are implicitly broken whenever a currency is debased. The promises of deposed governments and failed banks become instantly worthless.

15. Transaction Settlement – A transaction in commodity money is a direct exchange of value for value. When a fiat currency transaction is performed, one party holds fiat currency and the other is the recipient of goods or services, but, like a retroactive breach of contract, the value of the fiat currency can be changed and may even become zero. Since there is always a residual third party to the transaction, i.e., a government or central bank, transactions remain unsettled.

Fiat currency schemes are philosophically misguided, fundamentally immoral and ultimately unstable. Fiat currencies are premised on value subjectivism and erroneously conflate money and value. They represent a mere medium of exchange and rely on unstable subjective mental states such as confidence and trust. As a result, they are ultimately fragile and prone to fail suddenly when those using them wake from the dream of value subjectivism.

Fiat currencies are immoral because they are forced on people against their will and contrary to their self interest and because they are a mechanism for legalized theft through currency debasement. Monetary monopolies extract economic rents by holding hostage the rights of individuals to freely exchange value for value. Central economic planning, redistribution of wealth and concentration of wealth undermine economic activity and encourage a culture of entitlement. Since fiat currency schemes are the source of exorbitant power, they engender extreme moral hazard, produce cronyism and corruption and foster a culture of corruption.

Fiat currencies are subject to the decisions of central planners and are invariably debased producing price instability and increasing economic volatility. Governments and central banks that promulgate fiat currency schemes remain as perpetual counterparties to transactions posing a constant and unlimited risk. Resulting transactions are not fully settled because the value of the currency can be arbitrarily altered after the fact.

History has shown that fiat currencies are always debased and that confidence in them eventually fails causing vast economic disruptions, losses of wealth, social and political chaos and even loss of life. The inevitable disasters caused by fiat currency schemes are usually followed by a return to commodity money but, once stability is achieved, a new fiat currency scheme is put in place repeating an unnecessary and destructive cycle that benefits few and harms many. Ironically, while commodity money is denigrated by those who benefit from fiat currency schemes, former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan noted as recently as 1999 that “Gold still represents the ultimate form of payment in the world. Fiat money in extremis is accepted by nobody. Gold is always accepted.”

Defenders of fiat currency schemes claim that they promote stable prices and moderate economic volatility. In fact, the opposite is true. Fiat currencies not only destabilize economies but undermine the moral basis of society. Without exception, in every historical case when a currency has been de-coupled from the objective world, i.e., from commodity money, the result has been disaster. Fiat currency schemes guarantee unending monetary and resulting economic, social and political chaos marked by brief periods of calm between inevitable abuses, bubbles and collapses.

Two great Movie – documentaries on the Criminal Banker Issue and our stolen money

OH CANADA OUR BOUGHT AND SOLD OUT LAND

Oh Canada presents how nations allow private banks to create their money and put the public in debt to these banks instead of creating their money themselves without any debt. Although it’s main focus is Canada, nations around the world use the same system.

BANKING THE AMERICAN DREAM

Please support the video creators by buying the high quality video from their website or by making a donation http://theamericandreamfilm.com/ Greek subtitles now available. The AMERICAN DREAM is a 30 minute animated film that shows you how you’ve been scammed by the most basic elements of our government system. All of us Americans strive for the American Dream, and this film shows you why your dream is getting farther and farther away. Do you know how your money is created? Or how banking works? Why did housing prices skyrocket and then plunge? Do you really know what the Federal Reserve System is and how it affects you every single day? THE AMERICAN DREAM takes an entertaining but hard hitting look at how the problems we have today are nothing new, and why leaders throughout our history have warned us and fought against the current type of financial system we have in America today. You will be challenged to investigate some very entrenched and powerful institutions in this nation, and hopefully encouraged to help get our nation back on track. Buy the high quality video from the website, http://theamericandreamfilm.com/ The video creators understand that how the monetary system works can be very confusing to some and have done a brilliant job in explaining how the whole system is set up to keep you forever in debt. This is not what the original founding fathers of America had in mind. Also, this is not just an American problem. It’s the same scam in nearly all countries around the world

Fractional-Reserve Banking

Fractional-Reserve Banking is a financial system in which deposit-taking financial institutions likebanks, are required to keep as a reserve only a small fraction of all the money deposited with them. When an individual or business deposits their money with a commercial bank, they lend the bank their money and the bank pays them interest on the loan. The money that has been deposited with the bank is used by the bank to originate loans for its customers who need financing. The deposit account owners who have lent their money to the bank, can withdraw their money at any time, but in reality at any given time only a small fraction of the money are being withdrawn simultaneously. The fact that not all depositors will demand their money at once has great implications, and is the main reason fractional-reserve banking is possible.
Most people have no idea how fractional-reserve banking works, but if the they understood its nature the fractional reserve banking will be exposed for what it is – a grand money-robbing scam imposed on the unsuspecting society. Lets see how fractional-reserve banking works.

How does Fractional-Reserve Banking Work?

Let’s see how fractional-reserve banking works. A customer of Bank #1 deposits $100 in his chequing account. The bank keeps the required reserve of 10% ($10) and lends the rest $90 to another bank customer. The second customer spends the $90 and this money ultimately ends in another chequing account at Bank #2. The Bank #2 keeps 10% ($9) of the deposit as a reserve and lends $81 to one of its customers. If this process continues 5 times in total we’ll have the following result.

FRBanking

The initial deposit of $100 magically ballooned to $468.5, creating $368.5 out of thin air through loans. Sounds like a Ponzi scheme? I’ll leave it to you to decide. As you can see your money is not actually in the bank, after you deposit it there. The $368.5 is money created by commercial banks, and they enter the economy and expand the money supply.

Why is Fractional-Reserve Banking Possible?

The fractional reserve banking is possible, because at any given time just a very small percentage of all deposited money is withdrawn. Furthermore the withdrawals are offset by new deposits. Most people keep their money in the bank most of the time (thinking that their money is secure there), which makes it easier for the banks to repay back money deposited with it on demand.

Bank Runs

What happens if the depositors of a particular bank lose faith in the ability of the bank to repay their deposits? If this happens the depositors will try to withdraw their money from the bank at the same time, but of course the bank will not able to repay them, because it actually keeps only fraction of the deposited money as reserves. Welcome to the wonderful world of fractional-reserve banking! This unpleasant situation is referred to as a bank run, and may cause the bank to fail unless the central bank act as a lender of last resort and bail out the bank.

The Wall Street Ponzi Scheme called Fractional Reserve Banking

Borrowing from Peter to Pay Paul

by Ellen Brown

Global Research, January 3, 2009

Cartoon in the New Yorker: A gun-toting man with large dark glasses, large hat pulled down, stands in front of a bank teller, who is reading a demand note. It says, “Give me all the money in my account.”

Bernie Madoff showed us how it was done: you induce many investors to invest their money, promising steady above-market returns; and you deliver – at least on paper. When your clients check their accounts, they see that their investments have indeed increased by the promised amount. Anyone who opts to pull out of the game is paid promptly and in full. You can afford to pay because most players stay in, and new players are constantly coming in to replace those who drop out. The players who drop out are simply paid with the money coming in from new recruits. The scheme works until the market turns and many players want their money back at once. Then it’s game over: you have to admit that you don’t have the funds, and you are probably looking at jail time.

A Ponzi scheme is a form of pyramid scheme in which earlier investors are paid with the money of later investors rather than from real profits. The perpetuation of the scheme requires an ever-increasing flow of money from investors in order to keep it going. Charles Ponzi was an engaging Boston ex-convict who defrauded investors out of $6 million in the 1920s by promising them a 400 percent return on redeemed postal reply coupons. When he finally could not pay, the scam earned him ten years in jail; and Bernie Madoff is likely to wind up there as well.

Most people are not involved in illegal Ponzi schemes, but we do keep our money in accounts that are tallied on computer screens rather than in stacks of coins or paper bills. How do we know that when we demand our money from our bank or broker that the funds will be there? The fact that banks are subject to “runs” (recall Northern Rock, Indymac and Washington Mutual) suggests that all may not be as it seems on our online screens. Banks themselves are involved in a sort of Ponzi scheme, one that has been perpetuated for hundreds of years. What distinguishes the legal scheme known as “fractional reserve” lending from the illegal schemes of Bernie Madoff and his ilk is that the bankers’ scheme is protected by government charter and backstopped with government funds. At last count, the Federal Reserve and the U.S. Treasury had committed $8.5 trillion to bailing out the banks from their follies.1 By comparison, M2, the largest measure of the money supply now reported by the Federal Reserve, was just under $8 trillion in December 2008.2 The sheer size of the bailout efforts indicates that the banking scheme has reached its mathematical limits and needs to be superseded by something more sustainable.
Penetrating the Bankers’ Ponzi Scheme

What fractional reserve lending is and how it works is summed up in Wikipedia as follows:

“Fractional-reserve banking is the banking practice in which banks keep only a fraction of their deposits in reserve (as cash and other liquid assets) with the choice of lending out the remainder, while maintaining the simultaneous obligation to redeem all deposits immediately upon demand. This practice is universal in modern banking. . . .The nature of fractional-reserve banking is that there is only a fraction of cash reserves available at the bank needed to repay all of the demand deposits and banknotes issued. . . . When Fractional-reserve banking works, it works because:

“1. Over any typical period of time, redemption demands are largely or wholly offset by new deposits or issues of notes. The bank thus needs only to satisfy the excess amount of redemptions.
“2. Only a minority of people will actually choose to withdraw their demand deposits or present their notes for payment at any given time.
“3. People usually keep their funds in the bank for a prolonged period of time.
“4. There are usually enough cash reserves in the bank to handle net redemptions.

“If the net redemption demands are unusually large, the bank will run low on reserves and will be forced to raise new funds from additional borrowings (e.g. by borrowing from the money market or using lines of credit held with other banks), and/or sell assets, to avoid running out of reserves and defaulting on its obligations. If creditors are afraid that the bank is running out of cash, they have an incentive to redeem their deposits as soon as possible, triggering a bank run.”

Like in other Ponzi schemes, bank runs result because the bank does not actually have the funds necessary to meet all its obligations. Peter’s money has been lent to Paul, with the interest income going to the bank.

As Elgin Groseclose, Director of the Institute for International Monetary Research, wryly observed in 1934:

“A warehouseman, taking goods deposited with him and devoting them to his own profit, either by use or by loan to another, is guilty of a tort, a conversion of goods for which he is liable in civil, if not in criminal, law. By a casuistry which is now elevated into an economic principle, but which has no defenders outside the realm of banking, a warehouseman who deals in money is subject to a diviner law: the banker is free to use for his private interest and profit the money left in trust. . . . He may even go further. He may create fictitious deposits on his books, which shall rank equally and ratably with actual deposits in any division of assets in case of liquidation.”3

How did the perpetrators of this scheme come to acquire government protection for what might otherwise have landed them in jail? A short history of the evolution of modern-day banking may be instructive.

The Evolution of a Government-Sanctioned Ponzi Scheme

What came to be known as fractional reserve lending dates back to the seventeenth century, when trade was conducted primarily in gold and silver coins. How it evolved was described by the Chicago Federal Reserve in a revealing booklet called “Modern Money Mechanics” like this:

“It started with goldsmiths. As early bankers, they initially provided safekeeping services, making a profit from vault storage fees for gold and coins deposited with them. People would redeem their “deposit receipts” whenever they needed gold or coins to purchase something, and physically take the gold or coins to the seller who, in turn, would deposit them for safekeeping, often with the same banker. Everyone soon found that it was a lot easier simply to use the deposit receipts directly as a means of payment. These receipts, which became known as notes, were acceptable as money since whoever held them could go to the banker and exchange them for metallic money.

“Then, bankers discovered that they could make loans merely by giving their promises to pay, or bank notes, to borrowers. In this way, banks began to create money. More notes could be issued than the gold and coin on hand because only a portion of the notes outstanding would be presented for payment at any one time. Enough metallic money had to be kept on hand, of course, to redeem whatever volume of notes was presented for payment.

“Transaction deposits are the modern counterpart of bank notes. It was a small step from printing notes to making book entries crediting deposits of borrowers, which the borrowers in turn could ‘spend’ by writing checks, thereby ‘printing’ their own money.”

If a landlord had rented the same house to five people at one time and pocketed the money, he would quickly have been jailed for fraud. But the bankers had devised a system in which they traded, not things of value, but paper receipts for them. It was called “fractional reserve” lending because the gold held in reserve was a mere fraction of the banknotes it supported. The scheme worked as long as only a few people came for their gold at one time; but investors would periodically get suspicious and all demand their gold back at once. There would then be a run on the bank and it would have to close its doors. This cycle of booms and busts went on throughout the nineteenth century, culminating in a particularly bad bank panic in 1907. The public became convinced that the country needed a central banking system to stop future panics, overcoming strong congressional opposition to any bill allowing the nation’s money to be issued by a private central bank controlled by Wall Street. The Federal Reserve Act creating such a “bankers’ bank” was passed in 1913. Robert Owens, a co-author of the Act, later testified before Congress that the banking industry had conspired to create a series of financial panics in order to rouse the people to demand “reforms” that served the interests of the financiers.4

Despite this powerful official backstop, however, the greatest bank run in history occurred only twenty years later, in 1933. President Roosevelt then took the dollar off the gold standard domestically, and Federal Reserve officials resolved to prevent further bank runs after that by flooding the banking system with “liquidity” (money created as debt to banks) whenever the banking Ponzi scheme came up short.

“Too Big to Fail”: The Government Provides the Ultimate Backstop

When these steps too proved insufficient to keep the banking scheme going, the government itself stepped up to the plate, providing bailout money directly from the taxpayers. The concept that some banks were “too big to fail” came in at the end of the 1980s, when the Savings and Loans collapsed and Citibank lost 50 percent of its share price. Negotiations were conducted behind closed doors, and “too big to fail” became standard policy. Bank risk was effectively nationalized: banks were now protected by the government from loss regardless of risk-taking or bad management.

There are limits, however, to the amount of support even the government’s deep pocket can provide. In the past two decades, the bankers’ lending scheme has been kept going by an even more speculative scheme known as “derivatives.” This is a complex subject that has been explored in other articles, but the bottom line is that more dollars are now owed in the derivatives casino than exist on the planet. (See Ellen Brown, “It’s the Derivatives, Stupid!” and “Credit Default Swaps: Derivative Disaster Du Jour,”www.webofdebt.com/articles.)

Attempting to fill the derivatives black hole with taxpayer money must inevitably be at the expense of other essential programs, such as Social Security and Medicare. Interestingly, Social Security and Medicare themselves are in some sense Ponzi schemes, since earlier retirees collect their benefits from the contributions of later workers. These programs, too, may soon be facing bankruptcy, in this case because their mathematical models failed to account for a huge wave of Baby Boomers who would linger longer than previous generations and demand expensive drugs and care through their senior years, and because the fund money has have been drawn on by the government for other purposes. The question here is, should the government be backstopping private banks that have mismanaged their investment portfolios at the expense of workers contractually entitled to a decent retirement from a fund they have paid into all their working lives? The answer, of course, is no; but there may be a way that the government could do both. If it were to nationalize the banking system completely – if the government were to assume not just the banks’ losses but their profits, oversight and control – it might have the funds both to maintain Social Security and Medicare and to provide a sustainable credit mechanism for the whole economy.

Replacing Private with Public Credit

Readily available credit has made America “the land of opportunity” ever since the days of the American colonists. What has transformed this credit system into a Ponzi scheme that must continually be propped up with bailout money is that the credit power has been turned over to private parties who always require more money back than they create in the first place. Benjamin Franklin reportedly explained this defect in the eighteenth century. When the directors of the Bank of England asked what was responsible for the booming economy of the young colonies, Franklin explained that the colonial governments issued their own money, which they both lent and spent into the economy:

“In the Colonies, we issue our own paper money. It is called ‘Colonial Scrip.’ We issue it in proper proportion to make the goods pass easily from the producers to the consumers. In this manner, creating ourselves our own paper money, we control its purchasing power and we have no interest to pay to no one. You see, a legitimate government can both spend and lend money into circulation, while banks can only lend significant amounts of their promissory bank notes, for they can neither give away nor spend but a tiny fraction of the money the people need. Thus, when your bankers here in England place money in circulation, there is always a debt principal to be returned and usury to be paid. The result is that you have always too little credit in circulation to give the workers full employment. You do not have too many workers, you have too little money in circulation, and that which circulates, all bears the endless burden of unpayable debt and usury.”

In an article titled “A Monetary System for the New Millennium,” Canadian money reform advocate Roger Langrick explains his concept in contemporary terms. He begins by illustrating the mathematical impossibility inherent in a system of bank-created money lent at interest:

“[I]magine the first bank which prints and lends out $100. For its efforts it asks for the borrower to return $110 in one year; that is it asks for 10% interest. Unwittingly, or maybe wittingly, the bank has created a mathematically impossible situation. The only way in which the borrower can return 110 of the bank’s notes is if the bank prints, and lends, $10 more at 10% interest . . . . The result of creating 100 and demanding 110 in return, is that the collective borrowers of a nation are forever chasing a phantom which can never be caught; the mythical $10 that were never created. The debt in fact is unrepayable. Each time $100 is created for the nation, the nation’s overall indebtedness to the system is increased by $110. The only solution at present is increased borrowing to cover the principal plus the interest of what has been borrowed.”

The better solution, says Langrick, is to allow the government to issue enough new debt-free dollars to cover the interest charges not created by the banks as loans:
“Instead of taxes, government would be empowered to create money for its own expenses up to the balance of the debt shortfall. Thus, if the banking industry created $100 in a year, the government would create $10 which it would use for its own expenses. Abraham Lincoln used this successfully when he created $500 million of ‘greenbacks’ to fight the Civil War.”

National Credit from a Truly National Banking System

In Langrick’s example, a private banking industry pockets the interest, which must be replaced every year by a 10 percent issue of new Greenbacks; but there is another possibility. The loans could be advanced by the government itself. The interest would then return to the government and could be spent back into the economy in a circular flow, without the need to continually issue more money to cover the interest shortfall.

The fractional reserve Ponzi scheme is bankrupt, and the banks engaged in it, rather than being bailed out by its victims, need to be put into a bankruptcy reorganization under the FDIC. The FDIC then has the recognized option of wiping their books clean and taking the banks’ stock in return for getting them up and running again. This would make them truly “national” banks, which could dispense “the full faith and credit of the United States” as a public utility. A truly national banking system could revive the economy with the sort of money only governments can issue – debt-free legal tender. The money would be debt-free to the government, while for the private sector, it would be freely available for borrowing at a modest interest by qualified applicants. A government-owned bank would not need to rob from Peter to advance credit to Paul. “Credit” is just an accounting tool – an advance against future profits, or the “monetization” (turning into cash) of the borrower’s promise to repay. As British commentator Ron Morrison observed in a provocative 2004 article titled “Keynes Without Debt”:

“[Today] bank credit supplies virtually all our everyday means of exchange, and this brings into sharp focus the simple fact that modern money is no longer constrained by outmoded intrinsic values. It is pure fiat [enforced by law] and simply a glorified accounting system. . . . Modern monetary reform is about displacing the current economic paradigm of ‘what can be afforded’ with ‘what we have the capacity to undertake.’”5

The objection to government-issued money has always been that it would be inflationary, but today some “reflating” of the economy could be a good thing. Just in the last year, more than $7 trillion in purchasing power has disappeared from the money supply, including wealth destruction in real estate, stocks, mutual fund shares, life insurance and pension fund reserves.6 Money is evaporating because old loans are defaulting and new loans are not being made to replace them.
Fortunately, as Martin Wolf noted in the December 16 Financial Times, “Curing deflation is child’s play in a ‘fiat money’ – a man-made money – system.” The central banks just need to get money flowing into the economy again. Among other ways they could do this, says Wolf, is that “they might finance the government on any scale they think necessary.”7

Rather than throwing money at a failed private banking system, public credit could be redirected into infrastructure and other projects that would get the wheels of production turning again. The Ponzi scheme in which debt is just shuffled around, borrowing from one player to pay another without actually producing anything of real value, could be replaced by a system in which the national credit card became an engine for true productivity and growth. Increased “demand” (money) would come from earned wages and salaries that would increase “supply” (goods and services) rather than merely servicing a perpetually increasing debt. When supply keeps up with demand, the money supply can be increased without inflating prices. In this way the paradigm of “what we can afford” could indeed be superseded by “what we have the capacity to undertake.”

Ellen Brown developed her research skills as an attorney practicing civil litigation in Los Angeles. In Web of Debt, her latest book, she turns those skills to an analysis of the Federal Reserve and “the money trust.” She shows how this private cartel has usurped the power to create money from the people themselves, and how we the people can get it back. Her earlier books focused on the pharmaceutical cartel that gets its power from “the money trust.” Her eleven books include Forbidden Medicine, Nature’s Pharmacy (co-authored with Dr. Lynne Walker), and The Key to Ultimate Health (co-authored with Dr. Richard Hansen).

Fractional Reserve Banking

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 Fractional-reserve banking is a form of banking where banks maintain reserves (of cash and coin or deposits at the central bank) that are only a fraction of the customer’sdeposits. Funds deposited into a bank are mostly lent out, and a bank keeps only a fraction (called the reserve ratio) of the quantity of deposits as reserves. Some of the funds lent out are subsequently deposited with another bank, increasing deposits at that second bank and allowing further lending. As most bank deposits are treated as money in their own right, fractional reserve banking increases the money supply, and banks are said to create money. Due to the prevalence of fractional reserve banking, the broad money supply of most countries is a multiple larger than the amount of base money created by the country’s central bank. That multiple (called the money multiplier) is determined by the reserve requirement or other financial ratio requirements imposed by financial regulators, and by the excess reserves kept by commercial banks.[1][2]

Central banks generally mandate reserve requirements that require banks to keep a minimum fraction of their demand deposits as cash reserves. This both limits the amount ofmoney creation that occurs in the commercial banking system,[2] and ensures that banks have enough ready cash to meet normal demand for withdrawals. Problems can arise, however, when depositors seek withdrawal of a large proportion of deposits at the same time; this can cause a bank run or, when problems are extreme and widespread, asystemic crisis. To mitigate this risk, the governments of most countries (usually acting through the central bank) regulate and oversee commercial banks, provide deposit insurance and act as lender of last resort to commercial banks.

Fractional-reserve banking is the most common form of banking and is practiced in almost all countries. Although Islamic banking prohibits the making of profit from interest on debt, a form of fractional-reserve banking is still evident in most Islamic countries.

History

Savers looking to keep their valuables in safekeeping depositories deposited gold coins and silver coins at goldsmiths, receiving in turn a note for their deposit (see Bank of Amsterdam). Once these notes became a trusted medium of exchange an early form of paper money was born, in the form of the goldsmiths’ notes.[3]

As the notes were used directly in trade, the goldsmiths observed that people would not usually redeem all their notes at the same time, and they saw the opportunity to invest their coin reserves in interest-bearing loans and bills. This generated income for the goldsmiths but left them with more notes on issue than reserves with which to pay them. A process was started that altered the role of the goldsmiths from passive guardians of bullion, charging fees for safe storage, to interest-paying and interest-earning banks. Thus fractional-reserve banking was born.

However, if creditors (note holders of gold originally deposited) lost faith in the ability of a bank to redeem (pay) their notes, many would try to redeem their notes at the same time. If in response a bank could not raise enough funds by calling in loans or selling bills, it either went into insolvency or defaulted on its notes. Such a situation is called a bank run and caused the demise of many early banks.[3]

Repeated bank failures and financial crises led to the creation of central banks – public institutions that have the authority to regulate commercial banks, impose reserve requirements, and act as lender-of-last-resort if a bank runs low on liquidity. The emergence of central banks mitigated the dangers associated with fractional reserve banking.[2][4]

From about 1991 a consensus had emerged within developed economies about the optimum design of monetary policy. In essence central bankers gave up attempts to directly control the amount of money in the economy and instead moved to indirect means by targeting interest rates. This consensus is criticized by some economists.[5]

Reason for existence

Fractional reserve banking allows people to invest their money, without losing the ability to use it on demand. Since most people do not need to use all their money all the time, banks lend out that money, to generate profit for themselves. Thus, banks can act as financial intermediaries — facilitating the investment of savers’ funds.[2][6] Full reserve banking, on the other hand, does not allow any money in such demand deposits to be invested (since all of the money would be locked up in reserves) and less liquid investments (such as stocks, bonds and time deposits) lock up a lender’s money for a time, making it unavailable for the lender to use.

According to mainstream economic theory, regulated fractional-reserve banking also benefits the economy by providing regulators with powerful tools for manipulating the money supply and interest rates, which many see as essential to a healthy economy.[7]

How it works

The nature of modern banking is such that the cash reserves at the bank available to repay demand deposits need only be a fraction of the demand deposits owed to depositors. In most legal systems, a demand deposit at a bank (e.g., a checking or savings account) is considered a loan to the bank (instead of a bailment) repayable on demand, that the bank can use to finance its investments in loans and interest bearing securities. Banks make a profit based on the difference between the interest they charge on the loans they make, and the interest they pay to their depositors (aggregately called the net interest margin (NIM)). Since a bank lends out most of the money deposited, keeping only a fraction of the total as reserves, it necessarily has less money than the account balances of its depositors.

The main reason customers deposit funds at a bank is to store savings in the form of a demand claim on the bank. Depositors still have a claim to full repayment of their funds on demand even though most of the funds have already been invested by the bank in interest bearing loans and securities.[8] Holders of demand deposits can withdraw all of their deposits at any time. If all the depositors of a bank did so at the same time a bank run would occur, and the bank would likely collapse. Due to the practice of central banking, this is a rare event today, as central banks usually guarantee the deposits at commercial banks, and act as lender of last resort when there is a run on a bank. However, there have been some recent bank runs: the Northern Rock crisis of 2007 in the United Kingdom is an example. The collapse of Washington Mutual bank in September 2008, the largest bank failure in history, was preceded by a “silent run” on the bank, where depositors removed vast sums of money from the bank through electronic transfer.[citation needed] However, in these cases, the banks proved to have been insolvent at the time of the run.[citation needed] Thus, these bank runs merely precipitated failures that were inevitable in any case.

In the absence of crises that trigger bank runs, fractional-reserve banking usually functions smoothly because at any one time relatively few depositors will make cash withdrawals simultaneously compared to the total amount on deposit, and a cash reserve can be maintained as a buffer to deal with the normal cash demands from depositors seeking withdrawals. In addition, in a normal economic environment, cash is steadily being introduced into the economy by the central bank, and new funds are steadily being deposited into the commercial banks.

However, if a bank is experiencing a financial crisis, and net redemption demands are unusually large over a period of time, the bank will run low on cash reserves and will be forced to raise additional funds to avoid running out of reserves and defaulting on its obligations. A bank can raise funds from additional borrowings (e.g., by borrowing from the money market or using lines of credit held with other banks), or by selling assets, or by calling in short-term loans. If creditors are afraid that the bank is running out of cash or is insolvent, they have an incentive to redeem their deposits as soon as possible before other depositors access the remaining cash reserves before they do, triggering a cascading crisis that can result in a full-scale bank run.

As an example for a very simple idea of how the fractional reserve system can work if there is only one bank, for a Reserve Fraction of 10%, a bank can turn a $1000 deposit of “M0” money, into $18,997 of “M1” money. Ignoring interest & fees, which makes banks even more profitable, this is how a bank can copy 90% of “M0” money to make “M1” money, where in this example the money loaned out is simply re-deposited in the bank and loaned out again, and so on, that is how the $18,997 “M1” money comes from the $1000 of “M0” money. Banks do this by accumulating loans and deposits (effectively multiplying) the “M0” supply to make a larger “M1” supply. Banks can collect interest on the spread of the higher loan interest from the lower deposit interests. Return On Investment (ROI) for a bank is theoretically infinite considering the bank is using none of its own money, if one excludes the cost of setting up and maintaining the accounting system.

Money creation

Main article: Money creation

Modern central banking allows banks to practice fractional reserve banking with inter-bank business transactions with a reduced risk of bankruptcy. The process of fractional-reserve banking expands the money supply of the economy but also increases the risk that a bank cannot meet its depositor withdrawals.[9][10] Though not a mainstream economic belief, a number of central bankers, monetary economists, and text books, have said that banks create money by ‘extending credit’, where banks obligate themselves to borrowers, and then later manage whatever liabilities this creates for them, where if the central bank targets interest rates, it must supply base money on demand to meet the banks reserve requirements, after the banks have begun the lending process[11][12][13][14][15][16][17][18] and that rather than deposits leading to loans, causality is reversed, and loans lead to deposits.[19][20][21][22]

There are two types of money in a fractional-reserve banking system operating with a central bank:[23][24][25]

  1. Central bank money: money created or adopted by the central bank regardless of its form –- precious metals, commodity certificates, banknotes, coins, electronic money loaned to commercial banks, or anything else the central bank chooses as its form of money

  2. Commercial bank money: demand deposits in the commercial banking system; sometimes referred to as chequebook money

When a deposit of central bank money is made at a commercial bank, the central bank money is removed from circulation and added to the commercial banks’ reserves (it is no longer counted as part of M1 money supply). Simultaneously, an equal amount of new commercial bank money is created in the form of bank deposits. When a loan is made by the commercial bank (which keeps only a fraction of the central bank money as reserves), using the central bank money from the commercial bank’s reserves, the m1 money supply expands by the size of the loan.[2] This process is called deposit multiplication.

Example of deposit multiplication

The table below displays the mainstream economics relending model of how loans are funded and how the money supply is affected. It also shows how central bank money is used to create commercial bank money from an initial deposit of $100 of central bank money. In the example, the initial deposit is lent out 10 times with a fractional-reserve rate of 20% to ultimately create $500 of commercial bank money. Each successive bank involved in this process creates new commercial bank money on a diminishing portion of the original deposit of central bank money. This is because banks only lend out a portion of the central bank money deposited, in order to fulfill reserve requirements and to ensure that they always have enough reserves on hand to meet normal transaction demands.

The relending model begins when an initial $100 deposit of central bank money is made into Bank A. Bank A takes 20 percent of it, or $20, and sets it aside as reserves, and then loans out the remaining 80 percent, or $80. At this point, the money supply actually totals $180, not $100, because the bank has loaned out $80 of the central bank money, kept $20 of central bank money in reserve (not part of the money supply), and substituted a newly created $100 IOU claim for the depositor that acts equivalently to and can be implicitly redeemed for central bank money (the depositor can transfer it to another account, write a check on it, demand his cash back, etc.). These claims by depositors on banks are termed demand deposits or commercial bank money and are simply recorded in a bank’s accounts as a liability (specifically, an IOU to the depositor). From a depositor’s perspective, commercial bank money is equivalent to central bank money – it is impossible to tell the two forms of money apart unless a bank run occurs (at which time everyone wants central bank money).[2]

At this point in the relending model, Bank A now only has $20 of central bank money on its books. The loan recipient is holding $80 in central bank money, but he soon spends the $80. The receiver of that $80 then deposits it into Bank B. Bank B is now in the same situation as Bank A started with, except it has a deposit of $80 of central bank money instead of $100. Similar to Bank A, Bank B sets aside 20 percent of that $80, or $16, as reserves and lends out the remaining $64, increasing money supply by $64. As the process continues, more commercial bank money is created. To simplify the table, a different bank is used for each deposit. In the real world, the money a bank lends may end up in the same bank so that it then has more money to lend out.

T1

The expansion of $100 of central bank money through fractional-reserve lending with a 20% reserve rate. $400 of commercial bank money is created virtually through loans.

Although no new money was physically created in addition to the initial $100 deposit, new commercial bank money is created through loans. The 2 boxes marked in red show the location of the original $100 deposit throughout the entire process. The total reserves plus the last deposit (or last loan, whichever is last) will always equal the original amount, which in this case is $100. As this process continues, more commercial bank money is created. The amounts in each step decrease towards a limit. If a graph is made showing the accumulation of deposits, one can see that the graph is curved and approaches a limit. This limit is the maximum amount of money that can be created with a given reserve rate. When the reserve rate is 20%, as in the example above, the maximum amount of total deposits that can be created is $500 and the maximum increase in the money supply is $400.

For an individual bank, the deposit is considered a liability whereas the loan it gives out and the reserves are considered assets. Deposits will always be equal to loans plus a bank’s reserves, since loans and reserves are created from deposits. This is the basis for a bank’s balance sheet.

Fractional reserve banking allows the money supply to expand or contract. Generally the expansion or contraction of the money supply is dictated by the balance between the rate of new loans being created and the rate of existing loans being repaid or defaulted on. The balance between these two rates can be influenced to some degree by actions of the central bank.

This table gives an outline of the makeup of money supplies worldwide. Most of the money in any given money supply consists of commercial bank money.[23] The value of commercial bank money is based on the fact that it can be exchanged freely at a bank for central bank money.[23][24]

The actual increase in the money supply through this process may be lower, as (at each step) banks may choose to hold reserves in excess of the statutory minimum, borrowers may let some funds sit idle, and some members of the public may choose to hold cash, and there also may be delays or frictions in the lending process.[26] Government regulations may also be used to limit the money creation process by preventing banks from giving out loans even though the reserve requirements have been fulfilled.[27]

Money multiplier

Main article: Money multiplier

The expansion of $100 through fractional-reserve banking with varying reserve requirements. Each curve approaches a limit. This limit is the value that the money multiplier calculates.

The most common mechanism used to measure this increase in the money supply is typically called the money multiplier. It calculates the maximum amount of money that an initial deposit can be expanded to with a given reserve ratio.

Formula

The money multiplier, m, is the inverse of the reserve requirement, R:[28]

m=\frac1R

Example

For example, with the reserve ratio of 20 percent, this reserve ratio, R, can also be expressed as a fraction:

R=\tfrac15

So then the money multiplier, m, will be calculated as:

m=\frac{1}{1/5}=5

This number is multiplied by the initial deposit to show the maximum amount of money it can be expanded to.

The money creation process is also affected by the currency drain ratio (the propensity of the public to hold banknotes rather than deposit them with a commercial bank), and the safety reserve ratio (excess reserves beyond the legal requirement that commercial banks voluntarily hold—usually a small amount). Data for “excess” reserves and vault cash are published regularly by the Federal Reserve in the United States.[29] In practice, the actual money multiplier varies over time, and may be substantially lower than the theoretical maximum.[30]

Confusingly there are many different “money multipliers”, some referring to ratios of rates of change of different money measures and others referring to ratios of absolute values of money measures.

Reserve requirements

The modern mainstream view of reserve requirements is that they are intended to prevent banks from:

  1. generating too much money by making too many loans against the narrow money deposit base;

  2. having a shortage of cash when large deposits are withdrawn (although the reserve is thought to be a legal minimum, it is understood that in a crisis or bank run, reserves may be made available on a temporary basis).

In practice, some central banks do not require reserves to be held, and in some countries that do, such as the USA and the EU they are not required to be held during the day when the banks are lending, and banks can borrow from other banks at near the central bank policy rate to ensure they have the necessary amount of required reserves by the close of business. Required reserves are therefore considered by some central bankers, monetary economists and textbooks to only play a very small role in limiting money creation in these countries. Most commentators agree however, that they help the banks have sufficient supplies of highly liquid assets, so that the system operates in an orderly fashion and maintains public confidence. The UK for example, which does not have required reserves, does have requirements that the banks keep a certain amount of cash, and in Australia while there are no reserve requirements, there are a variety of requirements to ensure the banks have a stabilising ratio of liquid assets, such as deposits held with local banks. Individual countries adhere to varying required reserve ratios which have changed over time.

In addition to reserve requirements, there are other required financial ratios that affect the amount of loans that a bank can fund. The capital requirement ratio is perhaps the most important of these other required ratios. When there are no mandatory reserve requirements, which are considered by some mainstream economists to restrict lending, the capital requirement ratio acts to prevent an infinite amount of bank lending.

Alternative views

See also: Endogenous money

Theories of endogenous money date to the 19th century, and were described by Joseph Schumpeter, and later the post-Keynesians.[31] Endogenous money theory states that the supply of money is credit-driven and determined endogenously by the demand for bank loans, rather than exogenously by monetary authorities.

Charles Goodhart worked for many years to encourage a different approach to money supply analysis and said the base money multiplier model was “such an incomplete way of describing the process of the determination of the stock of money that it amounts to misinstruction”[32] Ten years later he said: “Almost all those who have worked in a [central bank] believe that this view is totally mistaken; in particular, it ignores the implications of several of the crucial institutional features of a modern commercial banking system…”.[33] Goodhart has characterized the money stock as a dependent endogenous variable.[34] In 1994,Mervyn King said that the causation between money and demand is a contentious issue, because although textbooks assume that money is exogenous, in the United Kingdom money is endogenous, as the Bank of England provides base money on demand and broad money is created by the banking system.[35][36][37]

Seth B. Carpenter and Selva Demiralp concluded the simple textbook base money multiplier is implausible in the United States.[38]

Money supplies around the world

Components of US money supply (currency, M1, M2, and M3) since 1959. In January 2007, the amount of central bank money was $750.5 billion while the amount of commercial bank money (in the M2 supply) was $6.33 trillion. M1 is currency plus demand deposits; M2 is M1 plus time deposits, savings deposits, and some money-market funds; and M3 is M2 plus large time deposits and other forms of money. The M3 data ends in 2006 because the federal reserve ceased reporting it.

Components of the euro money supply 1998-2007

Main articles: Money supply and Inflation

Fractional-reserve banking determines the relationship between the amount of central bank money (currency) in the official money supply statistics and the total money supply. Most of the money in these systems is commercial bank money. Fractional reserve banking involves the issuance and creation of commercial bank money, which increases the money supply through the deposit creation multiplier. The issue of money through the banking system is a mechanism of monetary transmission, which a central bank can influence indirectly by raising or lowering interest rates (although banking regulations may also be adjusted to influence the money supply, depending on the circumstances).

Regulation

Because the nature of fractional-reserve banking involves the possibility of bank runs, central banks have been created throughout the world to address these problems.[4][39]

Central banks

Main article: Central bank

Government controls and bank regulations related to fractional-reserve banking have generally been used to impose restrictive requirements on note issue and deposit taking on the one hand, and to provide relief from bankruptcy and creditor claims, and/or protect creditors with government funds, when banks defaulted on the other hand. Such measures have included:

  1. Minimum required reserve ratios (RRRs)

  2. Minimum capital ratios

  3. Government bond deposit requirements for note issue

  4. 100% Marginal Reserve requirements for note issue, such as the Bank Charter Act 1844 (UK)

  5. Sanction on bank defaults and protection from creditors for many months or even years, and

  6. Central bank support for distressed banks, and government guarantee funds for notes and deposits, both to counteract bank runs and to protect bank creditors.

Liquidity and capital management for a bank

Main articles: Capital requirement and Market liquidity

To avoid defaulting on its obligations, the bank must maintain a minimal reserve ratio that it fixes in accordance with, notably, regulations and its liabilities. In practice this means that the bank sets a reserve ratio target and responds when the actual ratio falls below the target. Such response can be, for instance:

  1. Selling or redeeming other assets, or securitization of illiquid assets,

  2. Restricting investment in new loans,

  3. Borrowing funds (whether repayable on demand or at a fixed maturity),

  4. Issuing additional capital instruments, or

  5. Reducing dividends.[citation needed]

Because different funding options have different costs, and differ in reliability, banks maintain a stock of low cost and reliable sources of liquidity such as:

  1. Demand deposits with other banks

  2. High quality marketable debt securities

  3. Committed lines of credit with other banks[citation needed]

As with reserves, other sources of liquidity are managed with targets.

The ability of the bank to borrow money reliably and economically is crucial, which is why confidence in the bank’s creditworthiness is important to its liquidity. This means that the bank needs to maintain adequate capitalisation and to effectively control its exposures to risk in order to continue its operations. If creditors doubt the bank’s assets are worth more than its liabilities, all demand creditors have an incentive to demand payment immediately, a situation known as a run on the bank.[citation needed]

Contemporary bank management methods for liquidity are based on maturity analysis of all the bank’s assets and liabilities (off balance sheet exposures may also be included). Assets and liabilities are put into residual contractual maturity buckets such as ‘on demand’, ‘less than 1 month’, ‘2–3 months’ etc. These residual contractual maturities may be adjusted to account for expected counter party behaviour such as early loan repayments due to borrowers refinancing and expected renewals of term deposits to give forecast cash flows. This analysis highlights any large future net outflows of cash and enables the bank to respond before they occur. Scenario analysis may also be conducted, depicting scenarios including stress scenarios such as a bank-specific crisis.[citation needed]

Risk and prudential regulation

In a fractional-reserve banking system, in the event of a bank run, the demand depositors and note holders would attempt to withdraw more money than the bank has in reserves, causing the bank to suffer a liquidity crisis and, ultimately, to perhaps default. In the event of a default, the bank would need to liquidate assets and the creditors of the bank would suffer a loss if the proceeds were insufficient to pay its liabilities. Since public deposits are payable on demand, liquidation may require selling assets quickly and potentially in large enough quantities to affect the price of those assets. An otherwise solvent bank (whose assets are worth more than its liabilities) may be made insolvent by a bank run. This problem potentially exists for any corporation with debt or liabilities, but is more critical for banks as they rely upon public deposits (which may be redeemable upon demand).

Although an initial analysis of a bank run and default points to the bank’s inability to liquidate or sell assets (i.e. because the fraction of assets not held in the form of liquid reserves are held in less liquid investments such as loans), a more full analysis indicates that depositors will cause a bank run only when they have a genuine fear of loss of capital, and that banks with a strong risk adjusted capital ratio should be able to liquidate assets and obtain other sources of finance to avoid default[citation needed]. For this reason, fractional-reserve banks have every reason to maintain their liquidity, even at the cost of selling assets at heavy discounts and obtaining finance at high cost, during a bank run (to avoid a total loss for the contributors of the bank’s capital, the shareholders)[citation needed].

Many governments have enforced or established deposit insurance systems in order to protect depositors from the event of bank defaults and to help maintain public confidence in the fractional-reserve system.

Responses to the problem of financial risk described above include:

  1. Proponents of prudential regulation, such as minimum capital ratios, minimum reserve ratios, central bank or other regulatory supervision, and compulsory note and deposit insurance, (see Controls on Fractional-Reserve Banking below);

  2. Proponents of free banking, who believe that banking should be open to free entry and competition, and that the self-interest of debtors, creditors and shareholders should result in effective risk management; and,

  3. Withdrawal restrictions: some bank accounts may place a limit on daily cash withdrawals and may require a notice period for very large withdrawals. Banking laws in some countries may allow restrictions to be placed on withdrawals under certain circumstances, although these restrictions may rarely, if ever, be used;

  4. Opponents of fractional reserve banking who insist that notes and demand deposits be 100% reserved.

Example of a bank balance sheet and financial ratios

An example of fractional reserve banking, and the calculation of the reserve ratio is shown in the balance sheet below:

E2

In this example the cash reserves held by the bank is $3010m ($201m currency + $2809m held at central bank) and the demand liabilities of the bank are $25482m, for a cash reserve ratio of 11.81%.

Other financial ratios

The key financial ratio used to analyze fractional-reserve banks is the cash reserve ratio, which is the ratio of cash reserves to demand deposits. However, other important financial ratios are also used to analyze the bank’s liquidity, financial strength, profitability etc.

For example the ANZ National Bank Limited balance sheet above gives the following financial ratios:

  1. The cash reserve ratio is $3010m/$25482m, i.e. 11.81%.

  2. The liquid assets reserve ratio is ($201m+$2809m+$1797m)/$25482m, i.e. 18.86%.

  3. The equity capital ratio is $8703m/107787m, i.e. 8.07%.

  4. The tangible equity ratio is ($8703m-$3297m)/107787m, i.e. 5.02%

  5. The total capital ratio is ($8703m+$2062m)/$107787m, i.e. 9.99%.

It is very important how the term ‘reserves’ is defined for calculating the reserve ratio, as different definitions give different results. Other important financial ratios may require analysis of disclosures in other parts of the bank’s financial statements. In particular, for liquidity risk, disclosures are incorporated into a note to the financial statements that provides maturity analysis of the bank’s assets and liabilities and an explanation of how the bank manages its liquidity.

How the example bank manages its liquidity

See also: Duration gap

The ANZ National Bank Limited explains its methods as:[citation needed]

Liquidity risk is the risk that the Banking Group will encounter difficulties in meeting commitments associated with its financial liabilities, e.g. overnight deposits, current accounts, and maturing deposits; and future commitments e.g. loan draw-downs and guarantees. The Banking Group manages its exposure to liquidity risk by maintaining sufficient liquid funds to meet its commitments based on historical and forecast cash flow requirements.

The following maturity analysis of assets and liabilities has been prepared on the basis of the remaining period to contractual maturity as at the balance date. The majority of longer term loans and advances are housing loans, which are likely to be repaid earlier than their contractual terms. Deposits include substantial customer deposits that are repayable on demand. However, historical experience has shown such balances provide a stable source of long term funding for the Banking Group. When managing liquidity risks, the Banking Group adjusts this contractual profile for expected customer behaviour.

Criticisms

Main article: Criticism of fractional-reserve banking

Critics of fractional reserve banking have argued one or more of the following: that it is unstable, that it exacerbates business cycles, that it causes inflation, or that it leads to environmental degradation.

“The Federal Reserve Idea was doubtless right; if it had not been, it could not have been established. But it has been manipulated. It has not been a ‘federal’ reserve; it has been a private reserve. It has been operated in the interest of bankers and not of everyone in general. Capable of being used to carry the country gradually back to a natural flow of business and to a natural level of prices, it was used to bludgeon business at a critical time and to bludgeon it in such a way that money-lenders profited when producers suffered.

If that is the fact, there is no American banker but will say that the method was wrong; economically wrong, logically wrong, commercially wrong, if not criminally wrong.

Today the Federal Reserve boasts of its own reserve as if that were a sign of national economic health. With the country struggling to live, the Federal Reserve ought to be low, not high. The height which the reserve has reached is a measure of the depth of the country’s depression.

If the Federal Reserve would let out a part of that flood of money — a high financial authority suggests that less than 10 percent would do it — it would be like an infusion of blood into the nation’s veins.”

    The monopoly power to issue currency is delegated to a central bank in full or sometimes in part. The practice regarding the currency issue is governed more by convention than by any particular theory. It is well known that the basic concept of currency evolved in order to facilitate exchange. The primitive currency note was in reality a promissory note to pay back to its bearer the original precious metals. With greater acceptability of these promissory notes, these began to move across the country and the banks that issued the promissory notes soon learnt that they could issue more receipts than the gold reserves held by them. This led to the evolution of the fractional reserve system. It also led to repeated bank failures and brought forth the need to have an independent authority to act as lender-of-the-last-resort. Even after the emergence of central banks, the concerned governments continued to decide asset backing for issue of coins and notes. The asset backing took various forms including gold coins, bullion, foreign exchange reserves and foreign securities. With the emergence of a fractional reserve system, this reserve backing (gold, currency assets, etc.) came down to a fraction of total currency put in circulation.

The Bankers Who call the TRUTH Criticism

Criticism of Fractional Reserve Banking

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Criticism_of_fractional_reserve_banking

Fractional-reserve banking

Criticisms of fractional-reserve banking have been put forward from a variety of perspectives. Critics have included economists such as Irving Fisher,[1] Frank Knight[2], and Milton Friedman.[3] Within the economics profession today, most criticisms are from non-mainstream economic theories such as those of the Austrian School.[4] There are also critics from outside the economics profession.

Terminology

Critics of fractional reserve banking and the related fiat paper monetary system may use the term debt-based monetary system[5] or credit-based monetary system to emphasize the role that credit plays in the current monetary system.[6] These terms are not in general use, and economists generally refer instead to the money supply, broad money and the money multiplier when discussing the mechanism by which the commercial banking system expands the quantity of money in an economy. The study of monetary theory in the economics profession is referred to as monetary economics.

General criticisms

Critics of fractional reserve banking claim that since money creation requires loans from the banking system, people are required to go into debt in order for any new money to be created. They assert that this can debase the means of exchange. Critics find it problematic that banks “create money out of nothing.”[7]

One criticism posits that since debt and the interest on the debt can only be paid in the same form of money, the total debt (principal plus interest) can never be paid in a debt-based monetary system unless more money is created through the same process. For example: if 100 credits are created and loaned into the economy at 10% per year, at the end of the year 110 credits will be needed to pay the loan and extinguish the debt. However, since the additional 10 credits does not yet exist, it too must be borrowed. This implies that debt must grow exponentially in order for the monetary system to remain solvent.[8][page needed] This was the argument of the Social Credit movement of the 1930s, who proposed to remove the job of money creation from banks and give it to governments.

Other criticisms relate to the potential fragility of bank liquidity in a fractional reserve banking environment, the financial risk of bank runs that depositors bear when depositing money with banks, and the impact that demand deposits have on the stock of money, and on inflation (that is, the implicit expansion of the money supply and its associated impact on prices and the exchange rate). An alternative to fractional reserve banking is full-reserve banking.[9] With full-reserve banking, some monetary reformers, such as Stephen Zarlenga of the American Monetary Institute, support the concurrent issuance of debt-free fiat currency from the Treasury, while others such as Congressman Ron Paul and some economists from the Austrian school, call for a commodity currency as existed under the gold standard.[10][11][12]

Some commentators, like debt-focused critics including Stephen Zarlenga, Lew Rockwell and Murray Rothbard, link together fractional-reserve banking, central banking, and government-enforced “paper” or fiat currency as negative features of modern monetary systems. They argue that fiat money and the practice of fractional reserve banking does not impose a natural limit on the growth of the money supply, and that this causes inherently unsustainable bubbles in asset and capital markets, which are vulnerable to speculation.[8][13][14][15][16][17] These commentators often use the term “debt-based monetary system” to refer to an economic system where money is created primarily through fractional-reserve banking techniques, using the banking system.[5]

Mark Anielski, and other political thinkers such as Michael Rowbotham, argue that this system of money supply has characteristics similar to a pyramid scheme, where the newly indebted are compelled to induce others into debt to pay off their own debts.[18]

Exacerbation of the business cycle

Austrian Business Cycle Theory

Adherents of the Austrian School claim that fractional-reserve banking, by expanding the money supply, will lower the interest rates compared to a hypothetical full-reserve banking system, although this idea has been criticized within mainstream economics.[19][20][21] Austrian economists argue that the presumed discrepancy will affect the role of the interest rate as the price of investment capital, guiding investment decisions.

Inflation

Fractional reserve banking involves the creation of money by the commercial bank system, increasing the money supply. According to the quantity theory of money, this larger money supply leads to more money ‘chasing’ the same amount of goods, which leads to a higher price level.[22] Austrian economists state that this expansion of the broad money supply (demand deposits and notes) caused by fractional reserve banking is a cause of price inflation.[23]

Environmental degradation

Some conservationists and environmentalists believe that fractional reserve banking creates the necessity for indefinite economic growth which leads to environmental destruction and depletion of natural resources especially when coupled with population growth.[24][25]

“Bail-Ins” Are Proposed In 2013 Canadian Budget!

Cyprus-Style “Bail-Ins” Are Proposed In The New 2013 Canadian Government Budget!

Michael Snyder
Economic Collapse
March 29, 2013

The politicians of the western world are coming after your bank accounts.  In fact, Cyprus-style “bail-ins” are actually proposed in the new Canadian government budget.  When I first heard about this I was quite skeptical, so I went and looked it up for myself.  And guess what?  It is right there in black and white on pages 144 and 145 of “Economic Action Plan 2013″ which the Harper government has already submitted to the House of Commons.  This new budget actually proposes “to implement a ‘bail-in’ regime for systemically important banks” in Canada.  “Economic Action Plan 2013″ was submitted on March 21st, which means that this “bail-in regime” was likely being planned long before the crisis in Cyprus ever erupted.  So exactly what in the world is going on here?  In addition, as you will see below, it is being reported that the European Parliament will soon be voting on a law which would require that large banks be “bailed in” when they fail.  In other words, that new law would make Cyprus-style bank account confiscation the law of the land for the entire EU.  I can’t even begin to describe how serious all of this is.  From now on, when major banks fail they are going to bail them out by grabbing the money that is in your bank accounts.  This is going to absolutely shatter faith in the banking system and it is actually going to make it far more likely that we will see major bank failures all over the western world.

What you are about to see absolutely amazed me when I first saw it.  The Canadian government is actually proposing that what just happened in Cyprus should be used as a blueprint for future bank failures up in Canada.

The following comes from pages 144 and 145 of “Economic Action Plan 2013″ which you can find right here.  Apparently the goal is to find a way to rescue “systemically important banks” without the use of taxpayer funds…

Canada’s large banks are a source of strength for the Canadian economy.  Our large banks have become increasingly successful in international markets, creating jobs at home.

The Government also recognizes the need to manage the risks associated with systemically important banks — those banks whose distress or failure could cause a disruption to the financial system and, in turn, negative impacts on the economy.  This requires strong prudential oversight and a robust set of options for resolving these institutions without the use of taxpayer funds, in the unlikely event that one becomes non-viable.

So if taxpayer funds will not be used to bail out the banks, how will it be done?  Well, the Canadian government is actually proposing that a “bail-in” regime be implemented…

The Government proposes to implement a “bail-in” regime for systemically important banks.This regime will be designed to ensure that, in the unlikely event that a systemically important bank depletes its capital, the bank can be recapitalized and returned to viability through the very rapid conversion of certain bank liabilities into regulatory capital.  This will reduce risks for taxpayers.  The Government will consult stakeholders on how best to implement a bail-in regime in Canada.  Implementation timelines will allow for a smooth transition for affected institutions, investors and other market participants.

So if the banks take extreme risks with their money and lose, “certain bank liabilities” (i.e. deposits) will rapidly be converted into “regulatory capital” and the banks will be saved.

In other words, the banks will just be allowed to grab money directly out of your bank accounts to recapitalize themselves.

That may sound completely and utterly insane to us, but this is how things will now be done all over the western world.

Sometimes a “bail-in” can be done by just converting unsecured debt into equity, but as we just saw in Cyprus, often when there is a major bank failure a lot more money is required to “fix the banks” than can possibly be raised by converting unsecured debt into equity.  That is when it becomes very tempting to dip into uninsured back accounts.

In fact, some European politicians are openly admitting as much.  According to RT, the European Parliament will soon be voting on a new law which will make Cyprus-style bank account confiscation a permanent part of the solution when major banks fail throughout the EU…

A senior lawmaker told Reuters the Cyprus model may not be an isolated case, and is perhaps a future template in dealing with troubled European banks.

The new template is now likely to turn into a full-scale EU law, letting taxpayers off the hook in case a bail-out is needed, but imposing major losses on bigger savers on a permanent basis.

“You need to be able to do the bail-in as well with deposits,” said Gunnar Hokmark, member of European Parliament, who is leading negotiations with EU countries to finalize a law for winding up problem banks, Reuters reported.

“Deposits below 100,000 euros are protected … deposits above 100,000 euros are not protected and shall be treated as part of the capital that can be bailed in,” Hokmark told Reuters, adding that he was confident a majority of his peers in the parliament backed the idea.

The European Commission has written the draft of the law, which now awaits approval from eurozone member states and the parliament on whether and when it can be implemented. It’s been reported, the law is planned to take effect in the beginning of 2015.

Are you starting to understand?

The other day when I said that The Global Elite Are Very Clearly Telling Us That They Plan To Raid Our Bank Accounts“, I was not exaggerating.

And for those in Cyprus with deposits of over 100,000 euros, the news just keeps getting worse and worse.

When the crisis first erupted, they were told that 10 percent of all deposits over 100,000 euros would be confiscated.

Then a few days later they were told that it would be 40 percent.

Now, according to the Washington Post, those with deposits over 100,000 euros at the second largest bank in Cyprus may lose as much as 80 percent of those deposits…

A deal was finally reached in Brussels with other euro countries and the International Monetary Fund early Monday. The country’s second-largest bank, Laiki, is to be split up, with its healthy assets being absorbed into the Bank of Cyprus. Savers with more 100,000 euros ($129,000) in either Bank of Cyprus and Laiki will face big losses. At Laiki, those could reach as much as 80 percent of amounts above the 100,000 insured limit; those at Bank of Cyprus are expected to be much lower.

Sadly, the truth is that those people will be lucky to ever see any of that money ever again.

How would you feel if someone came along and wiped out your life savings so that banks that took incredibly reckless risks could be bailed out?

Needless to say, a lot of people in Cyprus are very, very angry right now.  The following reactions from outraged depositors in Cyprus are from Sky News

“They have stolen our money,” Milton Loucas told Sky News.

“I have been working for 60 years. I am 80 years old. I cannot work again for my living – they have cut the lot.

“Our money, our social insurance – they have cut them. How are we going to live?”

Another Cypriot, Stelios, came out of the bank empty handed.

“I tried to get my February wages and they gave me a piece of paper only,” he said.

“I have two children in the army and they asked for money – I don’t have money to give them.

“The Government didn’t pay anybody. My old parents didn’t get their pension.”

A lot of people have just had their entire lives turned upside down.

But there were some people that were told ahead of the crisis and were able to get their money out in time.

According to the BBC, foreigners pulled a whopping 18 percent of their money out of Cyprus banks during the month of February alone…

Information from the Central Bank of Cyprus released on Thursday showed that foreign depositors had already withdrawn 18% of their cash from the nation’s banks during February, before the current crisis hit home.

So how did they know to pull their money out and who told them?

In addition, branches of the two largest banks in Cyprus were kept open in Moscow and London even after all of the banks in Cyprus itself were shut down.  So wealthy Russians and wealthy Brits have been able to take all of their money out of those banks while the people of Cyprus have been unable to.  It is hard to even find the words to describe how unfair that is.  The following is from a recent article by Mark J. Grant

So let us then turn back to Cyprus and see why the Russians are not quite so upset as they were at the beginning of the crisis. The answer to this question is Uniastrum bank which is headquartered in Moscow. Eighty percent (80%) is owned by the Bank of Cyprus. After the crisis began and right up until the capital controls were implemented the bank was open for business with no restrictions upon withdrawals. So the crisis began, was all over the Press and the Russian depositors walked into the local bank and withdrew their money from Uniastrum, the Bank of Cyprus, or had it wired in from the other local Cyprus banks and it was then withdrawn. Problem solved!

At the same time Laiki bank and the Bank of Cyprus had operating branches in London. There were no restrictions there either so people could walk into those banks and withdraw their money as well. No restrictions at all right up until the time of the Capital Controls. In the meantime, in Cyprus, people and institutions could not get at their money so the Russians and many British took out their money, closed their accounts while the people in Cyprus were left high and dry.

The wealthy always seem to come out ahead somehow, don’t they?

Meanwhile, those in Cyprus with deposits under 100,000 euros are now dealing with some very stringent capital controls.  In other words, there are some very tight restrictions on what they can do with their money.  For example, the maximum daily cash withdrawal has been set at 300 euros.  The following are some of the other restrictions that are in force right now

As well as the daily withdrawal limit, Cypriots may not cash cheques.

Payments and/or transfers outside Cyprus via debit and or credit cards are allowed up to 5,000 euros per person per month.

Transactions of 5,000-200,000 euros will be reviewed by a specially established committee, with applications for those over 200,000 euros needing individual approval.

Travellers leaving the country will only be allowed to take 1,000 euros with them.

When the next great wave of the economic collapse strikes, capital controls and bank account confiscation will suddenly become “normal” all over the world.

So get prepared while you still can.

One thing that you can do is make sure that you don’t have all of your eggs in one basket.  The following is what Jim Rogers recently told CNBC

“I, for one, am making sure I don’t have too much money in any one specific bank account anywhere in the world, because now there is a precedent,” he said. “The IMF has said ‘sure, loot the bank accounts’ the EU has said ‘loot the bank accounts’ so you can be sure that other countries when problems come, are going to say, ‘well, it’s condoned by the EU, it’s condoned by the IMF, so let’s do it too.’”

The more places that you have your money, the more difficult it will be for “the powers that be” to loot it.

The global elite are fundamentally changing the game.  From now on, no bank account on earth will ever be able to be considered “100% safe” again.  This is going to create an atmosphere of fear and panic, and no financial system can operate normally when you destroy the confidence that people have in it.

Confidence is a funny thing – it can take decades to build, but it can be destroyed in a single moment.

None of us will ever be able to have confidence in our bank accounts again, and I fear that the next wave of the economic collapse may be closer than I had first anticipated.
