As it Began, So it Ends…..
Back in the 1860’s in England, an enigmatic figure played an incalculable role in destroying the lives of millions, if not billions of people. His name name was Benjamin Disraeli.
He was an infamous fop and dandy who became an elder statesmen in Britain, Lord of the Exchequer and Prime Minister. His debates with William Gladstone, his chief adversary, are still studied by those interested in Forensics. Those interested in the history of the modern world will study Disraeli, as I did in college, for other reasons.
The long and the short of it is that after Prince Albert died, Queen Victoria became disconsolate. Like King Solomon she despaired of any greater purpose for human life than the grave and became ensnared in a cynical and destructive frame of mind that meshed well with the wit and guile of a man like Disraeli.
Disraeli approached the Queen with a new scheme (or, to be honest, actually a very, very old scheme) to make money for the Crown and then use the financing to conquer India. It would, if one were cynical enough to do it, solve two problems at once — the burgeoning economic and political power of the industrial working class, and the crimp in the royal coffers caused by losing the American Revolutionary War and War of 1812.
All you had to do, was “enfranchise” the working class and convince them that the ability to “vote” was a good thing.
They would be too ignorant and lazy to grasp why it was also a supremely bad thing.
While millions of British workers hailed Disraeli’s enfranchisement as a step forward for the working class, he cynically and very quietly placed claims upon their names and estates, their lands and small businesses, and began using these formerly private assets as chattel to “hypothecate” debt and finance the Raj — the vicious British mercenary forces sent to conquer India.
Hypothecation is a quintessentially evil— and should be illegal —process of making claims against someone else’s property as chattel backing your own debts, without notifying them, and without formally taking title to the property. It’s all done under the table, by a process of “debt assumption”.
Thus the seizure of private property and the de facto enslavement of British workers via this process of enfranchisement was used to finance the conquest of another people half a world away and the entire Indian Subcontinent was soon under the iron hoof of Crown rule.
That’s how the Babylonian Slave System got a new foothold in the modern world and how the current malaise began.
And now we are seeing how it ends.
As has been endlessly repeated, the Territorial and Municipal United States conglomerates have accrued a so-called National Debt of around 21 Trillion Dollars.
At the same time, the Pentagon has “lost” 21 Trillion Dollars.
Let me observe that in a “debt-credit” system, such as the one we have, it is impossible to accrue a debt —national or otherwise — because any debt is instantly expunged by a credit. Every single transaction generates an equal and opposite credit.
So when someone advances the idea that a 21 Trillion dollar National Debt exists, one should immediately ask — what happened to the National Credit?
Now, we know. It was siphoned off and spent by the Pentagon, leaving the hapless American people who earned all that credit in the first place, still holding the bag.
And what was all that money actually used for? To subjugate the entire world, much as India was subjugated a century earlier, to the greed of the Royal Family and all their megalomaniac pals.
The Americans, Aussies, Canadians, Germans, Japanese, and others around the world were all “enfranchised” according to Disraeli’s model. A surreptitious “assumed” title was taken against their names and labor and material property. Debt was hypothecated against these private assets. The resulting wealth was spent on expanding “American” military power, howbeit, all this military power was actually under the secretive, surreptitious command of the British Crown.
Because, remember, the British Territorial United States usurped upon our actual Federal Government in the wake of the Civil War and the Brits have been commandeering everything behind the scenes ever since.
It is well past time for these Odious Debts to be recognized for what they are, and for the British Interlopers and their Allies in this criminality, to be removed from our shores.
And you have a simple choice. Either correct the falsified political status records and reclaim your birthright political status, assemble with like-minded people and give face, force, and body to your land and soil jurisdiction counties and States — or live as slaves of these criminals. Forever.
Their mental and moral illness has reached terminal velocity.
Either put a peaceable and public end to it, or suffer the consequences.
To get started, make your claim to your birthright part of the land jurisdiction record by recording it and re-conveying your Trade Name and all attached Assumed NAMES back to the land and soil of the state where you were born. See Article 928 on my website.
Next, assemble your Counties and your States. Get going by sending an email with your County and State as the subject line to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by visiting the forums at https://national-assembly.net.
Then join the national reconstruction effort and the national teleconference call every Thursday at nine o’clock Eastern Standard Time: 1-712-770- 4160, access code 226823#.

Ron Paul: Here’s 21 Trillion Reasons To Question The Role Of Government In America
Via Ron Paul’s Facebook page,
The U.S. military budget dwarfs every other country on the planet combined.
Do you know how much the Pentagon spent between 1998 and 2015 that is “unaccounted for”?
TWENTY-ONE TRILLION DOLLARS
Where did it go?
No one knows…it’s “unaccounted for”.
The role of government must SERIOUSLY be reconsidered in America.
Without being technically at war with anyone in particular, the U.S. is dropping a bomb somewhere in the world every 12 minutes, around the clock.
The U.S. has 1,000 military bases scattered across the planet.
Congress, not only doesn’t declare war, as they’re required to by the U.S. Constitution, but they’re surprised to find out that American troops are peppered throughout Africa too.
The role of government must SERIOUSLY be reconsidered in America.
Peace … Non-intervention in the affairs of foreign nations … Free Trade … Travel.
These principles have long been gone.
It’s time to revive them.

Just in case you were unclear on the details of the missing $21 trillion… here is Lee Camp, via TruthDig.com…
Twenty-one trillion dollars.
The Pentagon’s own numbers show that it can’t account for $21 trillion. Yes, I mean trillion with a “T.” And this could change everything.
But I’ll get back to that in a moment.
There are certain things the human mind is not meant to do. Our complex brains cannot view the world in infrared, cannot spell words backward during orgasm and cannot really grasp numbers over a few thousand. A few thousand, we can feel and conceptualize. We’ve all been in stadiums with several thousand people. We have an idea of what that looks like (and how sticky the floor gets).
But when we get into the millions, we lose it. It becomes a fog of nonsense. Visualizing it feels like trying to hug a memory. We may know what $1 million can buy (and we may want that thing), but you probably don’t know how tall a stack of a million $1 bills is. You probably don’t know how long it takes a minimum-wage employee to make $1 million.
That’s why trying to understand—truly understand—that the Pentagon spent 21 trillion unaccounted-for dollars between 1998 and 2015 washes over us like your mother telling you that your third cousin you met twice is getting divorced. It seems vaguely upsetting, but you forget about it 15 seconds later because … what else is there to do?
But let’s get back to the beginning. A couple of years ago, Mark Skidmore, an economics professor, heard Catherine Austin Fitts, former assistant secretary in the Department of Housing and Urban Development, say that the Department of Defense Office of Inspector General had found $6.5 trillion worth of unaccounted-for spending in 2015. Skidmore, being an economics professor, thought something like, “She means $6.5 billion. Not trillion. Because trillion would mean the Pentagon couldn’t account for more money than the gross domestic product of the whole United Kingdom. But still, $6.5 billion of unaccounted-for money is a crazy amount.”
So he went and looked at the inspector general’s report, and he found something interesting: It was trillion! It was fucking $6.5 trillion in 2015 of unaccounted-for spending! And I’m sorry for the cursing, but the word “trillion” is legally obligated to be prefaced with “fucking.” It is indeed way more than the U.K.’s GDP.
Skidmore did a little more digging. As Forbes reported in December 2017, “[He] and Catherine Austin Fitts … conducted a search of government websites and found similar reports dating back to 1998. While the documents are incomplete, original government sources indicate $21 trillion in unsupported adjustments have been reported for the Department of Defense and the Department of Housing and Urban Development for the years 1998-2015.”
Let’s stop and take a second to conceive how much $21 trillion is (which you can’t because our brains short-circuit, but we’ll try anyway).
1. The amount of money supposedly in the stock market is $30 trillion.
2. The GDP of the United States is $18.6 trillion.
3. Picture a stack of money. Now imagine that that stack of dollars is all $1,000 bills. Each bill says “$1,000” on it. How high do you imagine that stack of dollars would be if it were $1 trillion. It would be 63 miles high.
4. Imagine you make $40,000 a year. How long would it take you to make $1 trillion? Well, don’t sign up for this task, because it would take you 25 million years (which sounds like a long time, but I hear that the last 10 million really fly by because you already know your way around the office, where the coffee machine is, etc.).
The human brain is not meant to think about a trillion dollars.
And it’s definitely not meant to think about the $21 trillion our Department of Defense can’t account for. These numbers sound bananas. They sound like something Alex Jones found tattooed on his backside by extraterrestrials.
But the 21 trillion number comes from the Department of Defense Office of Inspector General—the OIG. Although, as Forbes pointed out, “after Mark Skidmore began inquiring about OIG-reported unsubstantiated adjustments, the OIG’s webpage, which documented, albeit in a highly incomplete manner, these unsupported “accounting adjustments,” was mysteriously taken down.”
Luckily, people had already grabbed copies of the report, which—for now—you can view here.
Here’s something else important from that Forbes article—which is one of the only mainstream media articles you can find on the largest theft in American history:
Given that the entire Army budget in fiscal year 2015 was $120 billion, unsupported adjustments were 54 times the level of spending authorized by Congress.
That’s right. The expenses with no explanation were 54 times the actual budget allotted by Congress. Well, it’s good to see Congress is doing 1/54th of its job of overseeing military spending (that’s actually more than I thought Congress was doing). This would seem to mean that 98 percent of every dollar spent by the Army in 2015 was unconstitutional.
So, pray tell, what did the OIG say caused all this unaccounted-for spending that makes Jeff Bezos’ net worth look like that of a guy jingling a tin can on the street corner?
“[The July 2016 inspector general] report indicates that unsupported adjustments are the result of the Defense Department’s ‘failure to correct system deficiencies.’ ”
They blame trillions of dollars of mysterious spending on a “failure to correct system deficiencies”? That’s like me saying I had sex with 100,000 wild hairless aardvarks because I wasn’t looking where I was walking.
Say it slowly to yourself.
At the end of the day, there are no justifiable explanations for this amount of unaccounted-for, unconstitutional spending. Right now, the Pentagon is being audited for the first time ever, and it’s taking 2,400 auditors to do it. I’m not holding my breath that they’ll actually be allowed to get to the bottom of this.
But if the American people truly understood this number, it would change both the country and the world. It means that the dollar is sprinting down a path toward worthless. If the Pentagon is hiding spending that dwarfs the amount of tax dollars coming in to the federal government, then it’s clear the government is printing however much it wants and thinking there are no consequences. Once these trillions are considered, our fiat currency has even less meaning than it already does, and it’s only a matter of time before inflation runs wild.
It also means that any time our government says it “doesn’t have money” for a project, it’s laughable. It can clearly “create” as much as it wants for bombing and death. This would explain how Donald Trump’s military can drop well over 100 bombs a day that cost well north of $1 million each.
So why can’t our government also “create” endless money for health care, education, the homeless, veterans benefits and the elderly, to make all parking free and to pay the Rolling Stones to play stoop-front shows in my neighborhood? (I’m sure the Rolling Stones are expensive, but surely a trillion dollars could cover a couple of songs.)
Obviously, our government could do those things, but it chooses not to. Earlier this month, Louisiana sent eviction notices to 30,000 elderly people on Medicaid to kick them out of their nursing homes. Yes, a country that can vomit trillions of dollars down a black hole marked “Military” can’t find the money to take care of our poor elderly. It’s a repulsive joke.
Former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates spoke about how no one knows where the money is flying in the Pentagon. In a barely reported speech in 2011, he said, “My staff and I learned that it was nearly impossible to get accurate information and answers to questions such as, ‘How much money did you spend?’ and ‘How many people do you have?’ ”
They can’t even find out how many people work for a specific department?
Note for anyone looking for a job: Just show up at the Pentagon and tell them you work there. It doesn’t seem like they’d have much luck proving you don’t.
For more on this story, check out David DeGraw’s excellent reporting at ChangeMaker.media, because the mainstream corporate media are mouthpieces for the weapons industry. They are friends with benefits of the military-industrial complex. I have seen basically nothing from the mainstream corporate media concerning this mysterious $21 trillion. I missed the time when CNN’s Wolf Blitzer said that the money we dump into war and death—either the accounted-for money or the secretive trillions—could end world hunger and poverty many times over. There’s no reason anybody needs to be starving or hungry or unsheltered on this planet, but our government seems hellbent on proving that it stands for nothing but profiting off death and misery. And our media desperately want to show they stand for nothing but propping up our morally bankrupt empire.
When the media aren’t actively promoting war, they’re filling the airwaves with shit, so the entire country can’t even hear itself think. Our whole mindscape is filled to the brim with nonsense and vacant celebrity idiocy. Then, while no one is looking, the largest theft humankind has ever seen is going on behind our backs—covered up under the guise of “national security.”
