America's greatest problem: Its debt-money system!

The Corrupt Federal Reserve Corporation. The Government will own nothing. The people will own nothing. The Bankers will own everything. By Melvin Sickler

If you would ask any American citizen what the Federal Reserve is, he probably would tell you that it is a government agency that creates all of the money to run the United States. This unfortunately, is the misconception most American have: that the Federal Reserve is a government agency, probably because the word "Federal" is used in its name. And this is exactly what the Bankers want: ignorance among the population!

In the next few paragraphs, I am going to simply explain what the Federal Reserve is really all about, and how it is being used to control the United States. A good resource book that I am using is entitled "Billions for the Bankers - Debts for the people" by Sheldon Emry.

* * * A private corporation
The first thing that must be understood is that the Federal Reserve Corporation is not a government agency, as most people think. It is a private corporation controlled by the Bankers, and therefore it is operated for the financial gain of the Bankers over the people, rather than for the good of the people.

When our Founding Fathers wrote the Constitution of the United States back in the 1700's, they specifically stated in Article 1 of this Constitution:

Congress shall have the Power to Coin Money and Regulate the Value Thereof.

It was the wish of the Founding Fathers that the power to create and control the money be in the hands of the Federal Congress, and not in the hands of private Bankers who could charge enormous amounts of interest, and who could actually then control the country by controlling the money. They understood the tricks of the Bankers, for what did Mayer Anselm Rothschild, the great European Banker, once say: "Permit me to ussue and control the money of a nation, and I care not who makes its laws..." It was their belief that all citizens should share in the profits of its creation, not just private Bankers, and therefore the national Government must be the only creator of money.

So what happened! For several years after the Constitution was signed, the money in the country was handled both legally and illegally, the Bankers having devised all kinds of tricks to try to take control of the nation's money.

The Federal Reserve Act
But the final blow came in 1913, on Christmas Eve, when the Congress passed the Federal Reserve Act, which officially took the power to create the money to run United States away from the Congress, and gave it over to private Bankers, who called themselves the Federal Reserve Corporation. But note: they are private Bankers.

The passage of this Federal Reserve Act authorized the establishment of a Federal Reserve Corporation, with a Board of Directors (The Federal Reserve Board) to run it. And the United States was divided into 12 Federal Reserve Districts.Image hosted by

This new law completely removed from the Congress the right to create money or to have any control over its creation, and gave this function over to the Federal Reserve Corporation. The Fed printed "Federal Reserve Notes", which are still accepted today as money among the citizens of the country.

But we have to understand that these Federal Reserve Notes, used as money in the country, cannot be considered as being constitutional money. Why, you ask? Because the Congress went against the Constitution of the United States when it passed this Federal Reserve Act, for it specifically states that Congress, and only Congress shall have the power to coin and regulate the money of the country.

Some might ask: "What does it matter if Congress or private Bankers create the money? It is accepted by the people just the same as a medium of exchange with which to perform business transactions".

Yes, the Federal Reserve Notes are accepted as a medium of exchange by the people of the United States. But this is a debt-money, being interest is charged on every dollar that is created, but the interest is not created!, Let me give an example to illustrate this point.

To obtain the money
Let us say that the Federal Government needs $1,000,000,000 ($1 billion) more, after it collects the taxes, to continue financing its projects. Since it does not have the money, and Congress has given away its authority to create it, the Government must go to the Federal Reserve, which is now in charge of creating the money for the country. But the Federal Reserve does not just give its money away! The Bankers are willing to deliver $1 billion in money or credit to the Federal Government only in exchange for the Government's agreement to pay it back - with interest! The Congress then authorizes the Treasury Department to print $1 billion in U.S. bonds, which are then delivered to the Federal Reserve Bankers.

The Federal Reserve then pays the cost of printing the $1 billion (about $1,000), and makes the exchange. The Government then used the money to pay its obligations.

Now, what are the results of this transaction! The $1 billion in Government bills is paid, but the Government has now indebted the people to the Bankers for $1 billion, on which the people must pay interest! And, of course, the interest is not created!.

Thousands upon thousands of such transactions have taken place since 1913, so by now the United States Government is indebted to the Bankers for $5,000,000,000,000, ($5 trillion), on which the people pay over $400 billion a year in interest alone, with no hope of every paying off the principal. Because of the interest charged on the money created, the borrower must always pay back more than he borrowed, so the Bankers will always get back more than they lend.

And, to top it all, on this $1 billion that the Federal Reserve received in bonds from this transaction, it is legally allowed to create another $15 billion in new credit to lend to states, municipalities, businesses, and individuals. Added to the original $1 billion, they could have $16 billion of created credit out in loans paying them interest, with their only cost being the $1,000 they spent for printing the original $1 billion lent to the Government. Is it diabolical? You bet it is!

"The President of the United States now becomes the absolute dictator of all the finances of the country. He appoints a controlling board of seven men, all of whom belong to his political party, even though it is a minority. The Secretary of the Treasury is to rule supreme whenever there is a difference of opinion between himself and the Federal Reserve Board. AND, only one member of the Board is to pass out of office while the President is in office."

By now you must surely agree that the only real solution to solve our financial problems is to put pressure on the Government to repeal the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 and to demand that Congress again be allowed to create and control the money of the nation, issuing interest and debt-free "United States Notes" as the legal currency. John F. Kennedy had begun to do this very thing just before he was assassinated!

The Big Link....

I see that I have the big link this week....

I have a question for you all.

Why hasn't there been more citizens standing up and speaking out for the truth? Not only about Nov 3, 1979, but also about what's going on today? I can see what's going on not only in Greensboro, but throughout the world.

It's not good...

What are you afraid of ?

The council members, and many others, have seemed to forgotten what type of government we have in place..

Government type:
Definition Field Listing
Constitution-based federal republic; strong democratic tradition

Federal Republic - a state in which the powers of the central government are restricted and in which the component parts (states, colonies, or provinces) retain a degree of self-government; ultimate sovereign power rests with the voters who chose their governmental representatives.

We all have to figure out a way to turn our past into positive energy. We have to build strong communities together . To me it's not about a neither black thing nor a white thing. I feel that it is a humanitarian thing. We can get past this together. We can not have anymore bloodshed. I do not see a black man or a white man. I see a man.

What would the UN think if it took a moment and look at the Big Bad US of A....and the humanitarian issuses that we have on our own soil? Probable they would say that we ourselves need to be liberated ....

It is not about the past, or you or I; it is about the future: your kids and my kids working together, playing together, living in the same community together, and making every effort to build better communities.

Could you imagine all the people living life in peace? You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope someday everyone else will join us, and the world will live as one.

I would like to say thanks the rest of the community that we have in Greensboro
Tara Sue, Ross Myers, Lewis Byers, Ron Newton,The Shu,
Lowana Currington and Ill Ridge This is the team in the community that doesn't get mentioned in many of the conversations througout "Greensboros' communities", for the work that are doing for the community. They are doing superior work within the community. Way to go guys..

The time is now for us to make that change....ThatsWhatzUp..

Greensboros' deceptions, illusions, and reality...

I know the title of this post sounds like a title of a soap opera..that exactly what we have as our representation in Greensboro a soap opera. I'm going to break down and explain our government in it's simplest form..
Image hosted by


de·cep·tion (d-spshn)n.

1. The use of deceit.
2. The fact or state of being deceived.
3. A ruse; a trick.

At the city council meeting on 041908 the deception was that the council members were at odds against each other on decision that broke along racial lines. I personally find this hard to digest..Image hosted by What better way to divide your people other than racially. We have seen the method of divide and conquer time and time again. While in the background it's all good, lets continue to bamboozle them out of those tax dollars..

il·lu·sion (-lzhn)n.

1. An erroneous perception of reality.
2. An erroneous concept or belief.
2. The condition of being deceived by a false perception or belief.
3. Something, such as a fantastic plan or desire, that causes an erroneous belief
or perception.
4. Illusionism in art.
5. A fine transparent cloth, used for dresses or trimmings.

re·al·i·ty (r-l-t)n.

1. The quality or state of being actual or true.
2. One, such as a person, an entity, or an event, that is actual: “the weight of history and political realities” (Benno C. Schmidt, Jr.).
3. The totality of all things possessing actuality, existence, or essence.
4. That which exists objectively and in fact: Your observations do not seem to be about reality.

The reality is that five people lost their lives on Nov 3, 1979. Here we are in 2005 and we are still fighting our demons here in Greensboro. Yes we should bring closeure to that day so we can make an effort to go foward, without skeletons in our closet. We not only should take a look at that day , but also take a momment and look at what is going on today. We have our kids dieing in the streets, our men and women dieing in Iraq, HIV and Aids are destroying our coumities, the cost of inflation does not match our wages, the unemployment rate is at all time high,we have babies having babies, a large present of our black males are incarcerated, our black kids are being expelled from schools in records numbers, we have illegal drugs all over the place...I could go on and on, however I don't have enough time..While all of this is going on our government is getting paid in full. I 'm aware the our city council elections are coming up in Nov 2005, This is my advice to you get involved in the political process get out and vote in order to make the changes that are much needed..Don't allow the media to control your minds. Corporate Media's Threat to Democracy.
"Whoever controls the media, controls the peoples' minds."

On the bright side, after the day is done and gone, all we can do is look back at it and invision a way not to make the same mistakes that were made the previous day, because we cann't go back and change them, however today is a new start..ThatsWhatzUp.

Our Government 101

The US has the largest and most technologically powerful economy in the world, with a per capita GDP of $37,800. In this market-oriented economy, private individuals and business firms make most of the decisions, and the federal and state governments buy needed goods and services predominantly in the private marketplace

Greensboros' Image )-: ?

The 6-3 vote was not good or can we look at it as the 6-3 Image? I was very disapointed in our City Councils decision that was made tonight on the TRC... This really displayed the cities true colors tonight! I do not feel that the City Council is afraid of the truth of what happen 26 years ago, because we already know what happen was wrong on both parties involved. I feel that our great city of Greensboro is afraid that the truth will come out about what's going on today in Greensboro... A 6-3 vote on a important issue like the TRC doesn't look good on Greensboros' behalf! I have made a voice post on my site please take a moment to listen to it. May God continue to bless us all....and give the world strength to carry on.. (voice post)

Bill aims to reveal profits of slavery

Short Title: State Contracts/Slavery Profits.(Public)
Sponsors:Representatives Womble; and Jones.
Referred to: State Government.

AN ACT requiring companies entering into contracts with state departments to examine their records for evidence of participation in or profiting from slavery.

Jones said the bill was modeled on a similar California law that led insurance companies to acknowledge their involvement in slavery. The goal, Jones said, would be to prompt those companies to either make apologies or prompt them to donate to or participate in local nonprofits that benefit the African American community. However, the bill doesn't require any specific sort of redress.

Amnesty Report Slams Taser, Cites 103 Related Deaths

There were 103 Taser stun gun-related deaths in the United States and Canada between June 2001 and March 2005, according to an Amnesty International report released Friday.

In the first three months of this year, there were 13 Taser-related deaths — compared with six during the same period last year, the report said.

The stun guns have been touted as less lethal than other ways of subduing combative people in high-risk situations, but Tasers have come under increasing scrutiny as a number of deaths have been blamed, at least partially, on the devices.

"This is something that definitely needs to be investigated...."

Peak Oil ..


Dear Reader,

Civilization as we know it is coming to an end soon. This is not the wacky proclamation of a doomsday cult, apocalypse bible prophecy sect, or conspiracy theory society. Rather, it is the scientific conclusion of the best paid, most widely-respected geologists, physicists, and investment bankers in the world. These are rational, professional, conservative individuals who are absolutely terrified by a phenomenon known as global “Peak Oil.”

"Are We 'Running Out'? I Thought
There Was 40 Years of the Stuff Left"

Oil will not just "run out" because all oil production follows a bell curve. This is true whether we're talking about an individual field, a country, or on the planet as a whole.

The truth Greensboro....

We all know the truth,however the rest of the world doesn't. The same things that went on 26 years ago are sill going on today. Where do we go from here? What does the future hold? The earth is my mother also!

Genesis 2 (King James Version)

7And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and brea
thed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

The Pope and Diversity....

Cardinal Francis Arinzeis is the highest ranking Black in the inner sanctum of the Vatican, the home of the Roman Catholic Church. Many say, he's in line for consideration to become Pope. He does not and never encourages the projection of the possibility of his succeeding the current Pope, John Paul II. In fact, he frowns at it.
Image hosted by

Cardinal Francis Arinze, the unique and distinctly cerebral personality appeared on the cover page of the USAfrica The Newspaper, dated April 14, 1999 (Vol. 6#4).

Essentially, I attempt ed to capture and distil the fact that he embodies the hopes and endurance of a people, a community, a faith and the inter-connectedness of humankind. He celebrated his Easter weekend with members of the African community in the U.S, and principally members of the Roman Catholic faith.

As the facilitator of inter-religious dialogue, he has seen and interacted with differing religionists who, to varying degrees, embody zealotry and reason, lucidity of thought and rock-ribbed dogmatisms. He also did this time in Houston, discussing with members of other faiths.

By being a major voice for Roman Catholicism in Africa, he has enriched the goals of the Vatican to win more souls to that unique section of the Christian community.

Rumsfeld Gets Grilled at Truth & Reconciliation Hearing

Here are those words again Truth & Reconciliation "Mufasa! Ooooh! Say it again! Mufasa !"

March 29, 2005
By Bernard Weiner, The Crisis Papers

It was several years after the Bush Administration had left office, in what has been called the period of ordinary "Restoration of Constitutional rule." Criminal indictments were about to be unsealed, naming the architects of the former regime's foreign wars/torture policy and martial law-type domestic rule.
Those individuals had one chance to escape likely incarceration: appearances before the recently-instituted Truth & Reconciliation Commission. Here is a partial transcript from Donald Rumsfeld's testimony:

"Why wait several years after the Bush Administration, when we can take care of this matter at the present moment"!

Bishop Tutu: Mr. Rumsfeld, welcome. The President and Congress have designated me chairman of America's Truth & Reconciliation Commission, based on my experience in my native South Africa after the apartheid regime fell. I briefly will run over the protocols of such hearings, as I will do later for George W. Bush, Richard Cheney, Alberto Gonzales, Condoleezza Rice, Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle, John Ashcroft, Douglas Feith and the many others who have applied for amnesty.

Our mandate is to get the truth on the record of what happened, and to assist those guilty of crimes and those victimized by them to face that truth squarely, and deal with the ramifications in a civilized manner where the entire society benefits.


Greensboros' prestigious image !

Is this the type of community that's being built here in Greensboro ?
Is this the prestigious image that is trying to be protected?
Right here in Greensboro, with one of the largest politcal blogging communities, no one has even said to Tara Sue, "Hey, I'm a attorney, or I have a good friend that is an outstanding attorney and I would speak to him or her, because I see that you have been done wrong by the people that should be protecting your rights!"

This is still the same question to you all: "What type of community are you tring to build" ?

The truth is something else isn't it!!!

I'm going to call it like I see it !!!
