        Regardless you ungrateful sot, the funds were wired at least two weeks ago to a bank account in London.

      In the Box,

      Those funds were wired two weeks ago! Irish got the full amount and promised me that he would send you your share. I assume that you have the $50K by now.

    Hey fellas.. As you guys mention that the powers that be are in control of so many facets of the financial sectors, when do you think they will fully nationalize the mining sectors? They are already staking claims to our agricultural farmers bank accounts and farm equipment–> <–

    It won't be long before they come looking for miners and what they harvest from the earth too.

    East Germany seems to be resurrected here in the "Land of the Free"

      The real Boston tea party Americans are no more.
      Even if there were true Americans from the past today I do not know if they would have been able to win against todays powerful government
      That is why the founding fathers warned you about big gouvernment
      This is a very very sad state of affairs.

        Joseph – “America wihtout Ron Paul is finished.”

        America is an idea. It is already finished. It was finished the day the citizens stopped teaching their children the origins of their society. But an idea can always be rekindled in the hearts of men. That is why I promote homeschooling and the “Christian American Education” program.

        The Principle Approach was rediscovered and restored to twentieth century American Christian education by the Foundation for American Christian Education

        Just the history piece is worth every single american`s time.

        • On May 4, 2012 at 6:28 pm,
          Joseph says:

          America is was not just andidea. It was reality.. The country will go down. But that does not mean the Church will go down as well. The church is not a buiding. The Church are the believers. Christ said: I will build my Church and the gates of hell shall not prevail. So America can and will go down butthat does not mean theChurch will go as well

        • On May 4, 2012 at 6:31 pm,
          Joseph says:

          This Principle Approach do they use the KJ1611. If not I am not interested.
          people that use forgery Bibles I am not interested to listen to them

          Joseph says:

          Hi Missive,
          I read a verse they quoted and it was a direct quote from the KJ1611 as well they read a passage which I believe was as well from the KJ1611. No Bible sounds and reads like the KJ1611. This Bible is assume and powerful, Like the Lord
          I am very impressed with this organization. I will follow closely
          Thank you for the Link
          Lord Bless Joe

            MissiveDuTexas says:

            Joseph – Don`t be fooled, if you had a true 1611, it would include all the apocryphal books kicked out by the puritans (Maccabees, etc.). The Spririt is supposed to help with everything, including incorrect translation.

          Many thanks for the site Missive,

          I would like to talk with you about your concept of home schooling.

          Please send me a number where I can call you.

            Not all home schools are alike…..including Christian Home Schools,,,,
            I have educated my children in christian home schools for over 15 years.

    Listening to this at the moment:

    And then I heard an interview on thepowerhour on May second from this guy:

    World Banking World Fraud: Using Your Identity – John Cruze

    What do we expect from a system that creates demand out of thin air and charges interest on it. Un-imaginable corruption can only be the end result, and that`s what we have.

    • On May 4, 2012 at 6:01 pm,
      Joseph says:

      Missive I am not into this ridiculous foolish meditation buddust pagan ritual.
      I suggest you stay away as well, turn and mediate towards Christ
      As he said:
      I am the way. the truth and the Light. No man cometh onto the Father but by me.
      For all it is worth May the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob Bless

      • On May 4, 2012 at 6:11 pm,
        MissiveDuTexas says:

        The interview has nothing to do with paganism. It would have been nice to have a good description with the interview, but I don`t run the show.

        Christ is my Lord and Savior, and I am not swayed to and fro by vain doctrines and philosophies, which create striffs and do not faith.

        • On May 4, 2012 at 6:23 pm,
          Joseph says:

          Why does it start with meitation and going to Egypt. Nothing good came out of Egypt. The preverse Bibles came out of Alexandria, Egypt. There are people that are probably Christian but do not know they are involved with pagan rituals. get informed.
          Free Masson for example(Pagan to the core)
          God says : My preople are destoyed because of lack of knowledge

          • On May 4, 2012 at 6:54 pm,
            MissiveDuTexas says:

            Not sure. The guy interviewed is Keith Scott, who has a lawsuit against the international financial system.

            CONFIRMED: The Trillion-Dollar Lawsuit That Could End Financial Tyranny


            From what I heard, he sounds like an operative à la John Perkins (confessions of an economic hitman).

  7. On May 4, 2012 at 5:23 pm,
    MissiveDuTexas says:

    Lynn – (male) – You didn’t know? That`s because they hired the guy who ran the whole big bro system in East Germany to implement it here:

    A chill has just gone down my spine…..after reading this article, many of you will know what I mean.

    • On May 4, 2012 at 6:17 pm,
      Joseph says:

      Hi Dagen,
      I saw mentioned the Roman Empire. You are probably do not know the Roman Empired will be revived in the last days which we are living I believe. You will find it in Revelation 17. There is a woman God calls a whore. This woman is Rome(Vatican). I will give you the points. She is rich decked in precious stones and has a gold cup in her hands, colors are scalet. She is drunk with blood of Christians(Catholic Church killed and wll kill again). Finally she is described as city which sits on seven Mountains. Rome is the city that sits on seven mountains. Rio de Genero as well but the rest of the discription does not fit.
      There is also a prophecy in the book of Daniel
      The Word of God is ahead of our present world
      Lord Bless Joe

        Jerry O^OTB says:

        Joseph just who do you think the book of revelation is written to, and for what reason?

      Interesting story Dagen.

      Have you heard about this from any other sources?

    Clay says:

    Al, Cory and Jon, The reason our government allows the crimes at the banks and financial operators to go on without even an investigation, never mind thoughts of prosecution is not just because they own or have most of the money to control government and it is not because it just gets shoveled into the lower floors (because in this case a rug is too small), but because most of the power in government comes from votes given by government workers who depend on government paychecks to live. Simple as that.

    Yes I know that it is reported the majority of people in the US are not working for government, but they don’t have to when because of the connections between big corporations and government they do get most of their money through government spending one way or another. Grants, highway projects, Unions such as Obama motors, list goes on and on and so am I, but the point is, most of the voters in this country get some kind of paycheck, benefit or whatever from government, which in a sense is the biggest “To Big To Fail” in the US. That is why Obama got elected, and that is why Romney is put front and center ahead of Ron Paul, because the majority of Americans are all part of the “To Big to Fail”.

    But, But, But you say! Don’t any of these people realize it can’t go on forever this way? Absolutely, the elected people and corporations know it won’t, but that does not matter near as much as making sure there are enough voters who think it can go on and on. So the US will continue down this terrible path to hell until such time the pain from the heat gets unbearable, only then will an new majority form.

  11. On May 4, 2012 at 6:22 pm,
    Clay says:

    Cory said, Money is Power. Absolutely Cory, take look at Buffet, Munger, Dimon, fact is it is hard to find someone worth many billions that has any virtue left. Maybe Al is the one good example of a billionaire with virtue???

  12. On May 4, 2012 at 6:35 pm,
    Clay says:

    Gold and Silver manipulation. Anyone who believes these markets are not manipulated are either blind and deaf in the brain or just don’t care. The total gold and silver market on a yearly dollar basis is tiny compared to daily activities in the currency, bonds and equity markets.

    So the reason the Government, Fed and banks manipulate gold, silver and securities is because they want to maintain the voter dependency on big corporations and big government. This is why small businesses and small companies are going under and shrinking across the country, because if it is possible to shift these people into government dependent jobs, then things can continue for a bit longer. Take look at France, example.

  13. On May 4, 2012 at 7:15 pm,
    Clay says:

    US Federal Debt as of May 4 for each of the following years.
    2002 – 5.967 trillion
    2003 – 6.460 trillion
    2004 – 7.124 trillion
    2005 – 7.760 trillion
    2006 – 8.355 trillion
    2007 – 8.816 trillion
    2008 – 9.347 trillion
    2009 -11.220 trillion
    2010 -12.941 trillion
    2011- 14.333 trillion
    2012 -15.671 trillion

    What will the National debt be this time next year?

      John W. Robertson says:


      What will it be like next year?? That’s easy.

      2013 – Democrats 17.060 trillion (+1.335 trillion more per CBO)
      2013 – Republicans 16.960 trillion
      (+1.235 trillion, $100 billion less per House committee plan to slash budget over Democrat levels)

      So know who you’re going to vote for now?

      That beautiful “stretch run” as gorgeous as you would call it – could be analogous to the “stretch run”`of fiat currencies racing to get to bottom first – priceless.

    Many thanks for all the comments.

    I have a question. From some of the comments, I get the feeling that perhaps a few are willing to simply roll over in this environment.

    I certainly am not!

    I view this site as a place where we can obtain information that is valuable to our well-being.

    Many of the thoughts put forth here are certainly not anywhere close to being “mainstream”. That is a good thing because, as I have said many times over the years, we all need to watch the movie of life on the “biggest screen possible”.

    By having all this information, along with the information we get from the mainstream, we can make up our own minds as to how we want to live our lives and protect ourselves and our loved ones.

    I, for one, am not into violence and pointless demonstrating. I advocate a common sense approach. To me, that is simply to take all the information at my disposal and then take action as I see fit.

    Here is a good example: If my parents ever thought that I would be investing the way I do, they probably would not have helped me go to university because they would have thought that I was absolutely crazy. As it turns out, that has not been the case!

    We need to tailor our actions to the times.

    My parents were correct for their paradigm, but certainly not for the current one.

    As a family, let’s make sure that we all stay informed, discuss ideas and then do what we believe is correct.

    I have learned a lot from each and every one of you and I thank you for that.
