Poem Copyright Alan Watt October 14th, 2010:
Tracking Moneybags Down Through the Ages,
Would Entail Volumes, Thousands of Pages:
"What a Wicked Web Our Masters Weave,
Building Empires Which, When They Leave,
Come Crashing Down When Cash Withdrawn,
Top Money-Men of the Devil's Spawn,
They Set Up Shop in Continent New,
Prepare Their System Ruled by Few,
Ensuring Schools Teach Young to Parrot
"I Will Succeed if I Chase the Carrot",
Then War is Called and Off They Go,
Because Their Masters Tell Them So,
They Prepare the Conquered to Be Dominated
By These Moneybags Who are Truly Hated,
Teaching Generations to Be Meek as Lambs,
So Triple-Chinned can Pull Off the Money Scams
With Their "Science" of Economy, Confusion of Lies,
They See Owning the World Become Their Prize"

Hi folks, I am Alan Watt and this is Cutting Through the Matrix on October the 14th, 2010. Now, newcomers, I always suggest you look into cuttingthroughthematrix.com website, and you'll find hundreds of talks to choose from, where I try to give you shortcuts as best as I can, to giving you the big picture of where the world is right now, where it's going to, how we got to where we are right now, and the various organizations that are behind it, because these organizations really act as one. They're all interconnected, and they have a global agenda for really an authoritarian type society. They decided long ago, at the birth of democracy, that they would never give the public democracy, and so they formed a parallel government with foundations, non-governmental organizations, incredible funding, and of course an ownership of what we call the free press. That was done a long time ago, and we've been conned and fooled down through the generations into a new Socialist type World Order for the general public, with an elite at the top, who imagine themselves going on into some Utopia for the future, as we die off gradually, with diseases, and no doubt brought on by the chemical spraying, the GMO food we're eating, and the injections we're getting as well, which have all been pretty well documented by pretty good sources. And never mind the fact that I can remember when people were not dying left and right of cancers, at all ages, whereas today they are. And it's taken as quite normal now. Everything becomes normal. We adapt, even to that, so casually. It's amazing to me.
Go in and help yourself, and while you're at it, remember, you can get print-ups as well as the audios of transcripts from any of the sites in English, and if you want them in other languages for print-up, you can go into alanwattsentientsentinel.eu and take your choice from the whole bunch that's there. And also, remember, you're the listeners that bring me to you. I don't ask for money from advertisers like all the other hosts do. I don't go on shows even, as a guest with an agent, and I don't think you realize that, even on Patriot Radio, a lot of them go on as guests through agencies. They have their managers and agents, just like any entertainer, and they take money for it. I could do that, but I decided to go against it. And so I go on for free. So, I've tried my best, as I say, to give out the information right now, while we have a chance to. Eventually, we won't have any more chances to speak the truth. And even when you do speak the truth, there's a barrage always coming out from I call it, the counter-intelligence side, they obfuscate the truth, make it very confusing, and have you off in a thousand directions. That's what's called true information warfare. And there's not much we can do about it, because big money always decides in the end how much of a voice you have in this world.
So all we can do is use the time we have on the internet to do the things that we do. And you've got to support me by doing so, because I don't get paid by advertisers, the ads you hear on this show are paid by the advertisers directly by RBN which pays for this air time. It pays for the staff and equipment and their bills. So, you can help me with mine by buying the books I've got for sale, the discs and so on, or donating. Now remember, you can purchase from the U.S. to Canada, go into cuttingthroughthematrix.com website, you'll see the order list. You can pay by personal check to Canada from the U.S., International postal money order from the U.S. to Canada. You can use paypal to order or donate. Just send a separate email with name, address, and order after you send the donation. Same across the rest of the world, with the addition of Western Union and Money Gram. Back with more after this break.
Hi folks, I'm back, Cutting Through the Matrix. And a Matrix it truly is. It's the whole system in which you're born into. It's all reality that's given to you. It's even the explanation of the reality that's given to you; it's all part of the Matrix. Because you're born into a complete socially engineered system, which included social indoctrination at school, in a scientific manner, according to those who helped design the system. And the whole idea was that you'd never really figure your way out of it. And of course, your parents didn't know either, they took everything for granted when they were born; things are just the way it is. And they have no real interest in knowing what was really going on in the big world events, including what was happening with the international treaties being signed with their own countries. They didn't even know for instance, for years, they were being amalgamated into and underneath a European Parliament, and that their countries would become provinces under that Parliament. And that's all been done. The same thing of course is still going on with the Americas for uniting the Americas. It's been going on for many years, in fact. The first building I think was set up in 1910 or 1912, called the Building of the Americas, and the big foundations even at that time were pushing for amalgamation with Mexico for the U.S. and Canada eventually down the road. This is how far back the big organizations set up their world agenda. And we're living through it.
Now part of that agenda was that everything would go international, and the richer countries would pay for the poorer countries to come up to a certain level of a standard of living, and that's still what we're doing today. The Marxists called it the redistribution of wealth. Of course, most folk in the countries felt, well it's the wealthy who will have to pay for that. No, you see, they class you as wealthy, even if you're renting in the Western countries. You're lucky to get a job, but if you have a job you're wealthy. So that's where you're tax money goes, it's to be spread across the world. And it really doesn't end up helping the people at all. It ends up in big multi-national, international corporations and sets up new buildings or factories really for them to own. That's how the system really has always worked.
After WWII, they set up an Overseas Economic Development Corporation, parts of government, and under a section of the government. Canada has one as well. And generally, the Left Wing politicians when they step down from office join that, and they get good positions in that dealing with where the money goes to all these different countries. And most folk are oblivious that their country even has been doing that since the end of WWII. Now they're stepping it up into the true Marxian program of redistribution of wealth as they call it, taking from those who are going under, to give to those who are already under. And that means we'll all be equally under the world dominant system, once it's all finished. And that's where it's really going to go. That's where it's really going to go.
That's why they brought on the financial crash when they did. I mean, how can it be a crash when the same banks are still in existence and making fortunes today, after their massive gifts from the taxpayer for their supposed losses they incurred with their own follies? What an incredible system we live in, and again, we take it all for granted, just like we take 9/11 for granted with the aftermath of martial law, basically, across the whole darn world, because of two buildings. That's never been thought of in history before. We've had world wars before, and even Pearl Harbor did not jolt the whole world suddenly to declare martial law across the whole planet. Didn't happen. But you see, it was planned to happen this time, because they did say after the scam of they Y2K, the year 2000 nonsense, they said really, the year, the century starts in 2001. And that's why you had it kicking off in 2001. That's why Arthur C. Clarke had his first novel, 2001. And 2010 really also is supposed to be the last year that Canada, Mexico, and the U.S. sign the final part of integration into law. Whether they start implementing it all at once, who knows. They've already done quite a lot already, because the federal bureaucrats in Canada can already apply to federal positions in bureaucracies in the U.S. and vice versa. That came out in the papers a few years ago, after they signed I think the second signing of the first integration treaty.
So that's the real world, and as I say, the banking crisis came on cue. And everything is going the way it was planned to go. The IMF is stepping up to its proper place as John Maynard Keynes said it would do. He said in his own lifetime it was only going part way, but eventually it would be set up basically to be the banker, under the World Bank, for the entire planet. And they would deal with every country's finances, including their bookkeeping, by the way. They already are trying to get into Europe, because of the last crash, and they want the right, under the European parliament, under the watchful eye of the IMF, or behalf I should really say of the IMF, to go over each country's books for themselves and start doing the bookkeeping. So, it was another blow to any idea of national sovereignty. National sovereignty they said a hundred years ago would have to go, to get this big wonderful Utopian plan through. And of course all their Utopias means a horror show for someone else. The Soviet Union was to be a Utopia. And look at the slaughtering spree they went on. Even starving millions of their own people to death, near the beginning of it, and the Ukrainians were starved to death, 30 million I think of them. Millions of them, never mind the ones they slaughtered too for having different opinions than themselves. That's what you always find about the liberal mentality, where they always talk about caring for everyone. Unless you go along with their political correctness, they have no tolerance at all for any other opinion. None whatsoever. They are completely intolerant of anyone else's opinion. That's the reality of the world we live in.
Now the big multinational corporations have to take a big, big place in the World Order, as we already know. IBM really leads the whole lot off. And they have their annual meetings where all big businesses come under the auspices of the IBM and anyone who's anyone attends these meetings, and the IBM basically gives them their marching orders as to where to go with their corporations and what to go into and all the rest of it. They're all on board, as they call it, together. They like the term on board, because you see they're all really pirates in a sense. In more senses than I'm actually saying here. Anyway, Carroll Quigley, Professor Carroll Quigley, who was the historian for the Council on Foreign Relations, which is the American arm of the Royal Institute for International Affairs, he did say that in this New World Order they're bringing in, the CEOs of the corporations and international corporations will be the new feudal overlords. It was a new feudal type system of those who are people and those who are not people, the non-beings down below. That's the system they are bringing into place.
And again, it's based on eugenics and all the rest of it, so you can see why they bring this in. Those who are incredibly successful, therefore are worth coming through with their offspring. Those who have failed and fallen by the wayside, just prove they've got junk genes and they can't get further ahead. That's really what they mean. And that's how they talk amongst each other about it too. Here's an article here now, and it's from the Council on Foreign Relations own website, and it says here, October the 8th:
For more than a decade, dozens of multinational corporations have been sued in federal courts in the United States for alleged human rights violations under the so-called Alien Tort Statute. Now these suits may be over.
In August, a U.S. appellate court ruled that corporations may not be held liable for violations of international law. The decision by the New York-based Second Circuit Court of Appeals will be welcomed by multinationals as well as by many foreign governments, who have protested that U.S. assertion of extraterritorial jurisdiction over the non-U.S. activities of foreign corporations itself violates international law.
Although the court's decision is at present binding only in the New York region, (Alan: I'm not surprised actually, because that makes more sense on many different levels than you think.) may be the death knell for most human rights litigation against multinational companies in U.S. courts.
The decision involved a suit by Nigerian nationals against Royal Dutch Petroleum and several Shell Oil affiliates for allegedly encouraging torture, murders and rapes by Nigerian soldiers of Nigerian villagers opposed to the companies' oil exploration activities.
three-judge panel ruled 2-1 that corporations, unlike individuals, may not be
subject to criminal and civil liability for violations of international law.
The dissenting judge complained that the majority decision “deals a blow to the
efforts of international law to protect human rights.”
So that's it. Human rights are tossed out the window, and you are going back under the feudal overlords, the new CEOs of the international corporations, exactly as Quigley said. How did he know? He was the historian for the group that was pushing it all. And where is this article here from? The Council on Foreign Relations, and that's the group he was historian for, who want this international order, an authoritarian order, because they say people are just too stupid to manage their own lives properly. That's it.
Now, part of the whole deal too is to bring us all down to a real state of poverty. Immigration doors will stay wide open as countries go down as Britain has already gone down under immigration. It's surprising the country is still afloat you might say. It did come out that Blair, the guy who worked with Blair, I think it was his vice-prime minister, assistant prime-minister, whatever they call them there, he did say that he'd been given orders by Blair to open the floodgates to the most diverse populations, in order to stamp out the culture of Britain forever. And I read that article from mainstream news a couple of months ago, on the air here, at RBN. And that's what's happened, you see. The people there are apathetic. They don't know what they are anymore. They've had 30 years of propaganda asking them, what does it mean to be British anyway? And I've seen the same technique used in Canada and elsewhere.
And there's massive unemployment everywhere and welfare everywhere. In the '60s and '70s the government then was building single parent homes, rather than building family homes, because they decided then, single parents would be mums in the future, as they would help to destroy marriage all together. They've done an awful good job at it. And of course they would fund the mums to stay at home, and that was an encouragement to very young girls too, to get a lifelong paycheck coming in, if they would have a child or two or three, and that did happen as well. It's all planned that way. All planned that way, because you see, the big boys said a hundred years ago or more, they had to destroy the family unit, because the family unit which stood together would fight together, they'd fight for each other. It was the last semblance of any clan or tribe, so it would have to be completely eliminated. But they also said too that they did not believe in people picking their own marriage partners because eugenics should rule and the choice should be made by eugenics experts, those who practice genealogy, who would take your little blood tests and your gene tests and so on, and your family history, and that of the proposed recipient of your sperm, and then decide if your offspring would be worthy to come into the world, and that really is what Socialism and Fabian Socialism is based upon.
If you don't believe me, see The Soviet Story, you'll see an old clip of George Bernard Shaw, preaching this socialist belief, where he talked about how the poor would have to come to them, and justify why they should be fed and kept alive. He also suggested too that the best scientists were brought together to make a type of gas that would humanely kill all the poor unfortunates, those who were not deemed worthy to breed. That's what true Socialism is. And that's why the scientific elite love it. And the Darwinists love it. And the bankers love Socialism because they don't have to go, look at the money they're raking in off countries. They get the governments now to fork over billions and billions and billions of dollars to them, whereas before, they had to go round door to door, collecting money from credit cards from individuals. How much easier it is to have a government on your side who collects all the cash for you, whenever you want it. That's called Socialism. And if you wonder what the rise in taxes is all about, read Karl Marx, and the planks of the Communist Manifesto. They've all been accomplished. It's all been done. And you're watching now as the housing market goes completely under. People can't get homes, and part of it was the abolition of private property. The family, private property, and so on, and then gradually increasing taxes and income taxes and more and more income taxes, and guess what? The U.S. is to be hammered in January with all the new taxes that are coming in. They won't know what's hit them. And Britain's already getting hammered with the taxes now. And the fuel going up for their heating fuel for the winter, until they can hardly heat themselves. And unfortunately they adapt and they put up with it, because they're so confused and they still live in a world where they think it's all quite real, and these politicians are just dealing with crises as they pop along. They have no idea of any agenda. They're completely ignorant. They're kept in the dark, many of them willfully so. They don't want to know.
So all you can do on shows like this is to talk to those who are looking for the answers, and at least fill them in as to how it got to where it is, and where it's going to go. That's all you can do. And hope that some young ones come in now and then, and they do, that's the one thing I get are the letters from young people who stopped drugging themselves and stopped banging their heads against the wall, stopped drinking their lives away, because they were trying to shut off their brains knowing there was just something wrong, and then blaming themselves that it must be them. Everybody else seemed quite happy, partying away. And what was wrong with them is they knew something was wrong. Once they get the trail of what's really wrong, they go at it with incredible energy for knowledge. And hopefully they'll be the ones down the road too who will take over this, and prevent the next step and the next step and the next step in their lifetimes, as so many failed to do in this lifetime. And that's why we're in the mess we're in. We sat back and let it all be done to us.
It was amazing too, I watched in the '60s and '70s, or definitely the '70s, I was very tiny in the '60s, but in the '70s, I saw them bringing in the better pension checks at that time for pensioners and so on, the little things, the carrots they give you temporarily to bring in the Socialist system, and how people adapted to it. They'd never had it so good, that was the little slogan they had, going amongst themselves, and they bought, and had fun, and got color televisions, and started watching all these TV programs. Entertainment just took up the slack, where before they used to have to sit and think and discuss things and talk to each other. They were entertained to death, literally, to death, as they are today. And they gave up. And even then when you talked to them in the '70s and '80s about what was happening, they would either deny it, or they would say, well thank God I'll be dead before the worst of it kicks in. What a cop-out to leave it to the next generation to take the hammer. What a disgusting cop-out. But so many go that way, I've heard it even today from people, oh, I'll be dead before the worst kicks in. And that excuses them from not participating. So anyway, here's an article here from Britain, after it's been put down as the worst place to live in the whole of Europe, with its high cost of living and its poor paying out to health care and so on and so on. Now they're hitting them for the winter with their fuel poverty. It says:
(A: It says:)
With 4.5m households unable to keep warm, concern is mounting that government cuts will leave more people out in the cold
(A: Well, they know this. Every year they do this.)
Fuel Poverty Figures: The number of UK households living in fuel poverty has gone up again because of rising energy prices.
(A: They do it every winter, and now they're putting energy surcharges on, and no doubt carbon taxes will be snuck in there too.)
A senior charity executive has described the increase in fuel poverty as "a national scandal" after official figures released today showed that the number of fuel-poor families rose to 4.5m in 2008, around one in six of all UK households.
A fuel-poor family is defined as one that has to spend more than 10% of its income on heating its home to a decent standard. According to the latest data in the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) (A: Energy and climate change, they combined the two. This con, this con of climate change as we go into a cold spell. So it says here:) an extra half a million households fell into this category from 2007-2008.
(A: It says:)
three-quarters of homes – were especially hard-hit, with fuel poverty in these
homes rising to 3.75m in 2008, up by 500,000 from the previous year.
There's folk who just die in their homes over there, generally the older folk too, now that they're cutting back on pensions and a whole bunch of things. Because you see, as Mr. Rockefeller said, he says, well you know, about the New World Order, he says well, you know, he says, you can't make an omelet without breaking eggs. And you see, that's what we are. We're all the fragments of the egg shells. All those who fail to make it, and go under. That's all we are to them. There's got to be sacrifice to have their wonderful cause come through. They truly believe in that. They don't do the sacrificing, of course, but you all do. There's always the sacrifice. That's traditional, traditional.
Now part of the system too was to degrade the whole of society, completely degrade society and all of its natural morality, the things, the common simple laws that kept society together making it function. Everyone knew the basic rules and laws. You didn't have massive police forces when I was growing up. And when they introduced the 'go at it' type thing, go and have sex, sex, sex, and they promoted it all from the BBC downwards, because you see, all cultural changes must come from the top down, not from the bottom up. And of course they threw the Pill at them, they gave them the miniskirt, they gave them the drug cult era, all that kind of stuff, all manufactured with intelligence services working to bring it about. And I'll touch on that when I come back from these messages.
Hi folks, I'm Alan Watt, we're Cutting Through the Matrix. And just mentioning that the idea of destruction of the family was a prime intent of them as far back as the late 1800s. H.G. Wells wrote about introducing free love, going on the old Platonic idea. He loved Plato, from the book, The Republic, where all women would be shared in common, meaning, if you're in a circle of friends, you might say, eventually which one you've got your eye on, will work her way eventually around to you. Everyone would take their share. That was the way it would be. And there would be no marriages as such, and so on, for the "its" as Plato called them at the bottom, those kind of just normal, little people at the bottom, not the elite type. And that has been done pretty well in today's society. And again, they augmented it in the '60s and '70s, it really sped up in the '70s with the Pill, massive promiscuity promoted everywhere, and then the schools got into that big time, as they were designed to do, by giving sexual education, which was really sexual promotion. Everyone knows the consequences of what's happened today, because Bertrand Russell helped to formulate that system, with his experimental schools back in the 1920s. And he found that if he could get them to start being hyperactive, hyper-thinking in fact about sexual activity at school, before they were at puberty, then they would go into sexual indulgence very quickly and go from partner to partner, the idea being that they would not mate with a partner for life. That was the idea and that has been accomplished.
Now, here is something else:
Teenagers to be awarded 'GCSE in sex'
(A: That's part of their education certificate in England. I guess that's the only thing they'll pass in now, and other political correctness and so on.)
Teenagers will learn how to use a condom and obtain the morning after pill as part of the first GCSE-style qualification in sex.
Pupils will be able to gain the equivalent of a D grade under the new course which has been devised to raise awareness of issues surrounding relationships, (A: What a joke, eh?) contraception and sexually transmitted diseases.
The Government-funded qualification is being offered in nine schools and colleges for the first time this term with plans to expand it across the country.
(A: They always do their little testing first.)
Last night, the move sparked outrage among families’ groups who claimed it legitimized sexual promiscuity and failed to make any reference to marriage.
(A: Well, that's the intent of it, for goodness sake. That's what it's all about. That's why they gave them this education in school. That's what John Dewey was all about, as I say, Lord Bertrand Russell was all about, saying it many, many years beforehand. And it says:)
But Suzanne Cant, research manager at the qualifications provider NCFE, which is running the course, said: “Sexual health education should play a part in the curriculum for all young people.
(A: Of course she will. That's her job, isn't it?)
“The latest figures show teenage pregnancy rates are falling, but not falling at a fast enough rate to meet Government targets. Meanwhile, annual diagnoses for sexually-transmitted diseases are already in the hundreds of thousands – and increasing all the time.
(A: Well, that's what you get when you get nothing but music television and you get youngsters trying to act like prostitutes and copy the dancers, literally. Some parents think that's cute. That tells you how sick their parents are. Because you see, their heads were worked on too, during their lifetime. It says:)
“Part of the way to tackle these issues is through education (A: The very thing that brought it on.) and [the] qualification offers a formal way to assess and certificate learners to help ensure the right messages are being delivered and understood.”
NCFE - which used to stand for Northern Council for Further Education - formally launched the Level 1 award in sexual health awareness this week following official accreditation by Ofqual, the exams regulator. Level 1 examinations are equivalent to low-level GCSEs graded D to G.
The course, which is aimed towards students who are not yet ready to take full GCSEs, and takes just nine hours to teach, asks pupils to give the names of male and female sexual organs, (A: I guess it's all the slang for it too.) describe two examples of “risky sexual behaviour” and outline two methods of contraception “that would be suitable for a young person”.
(A: So they've already decided what's suitable for a young person. I mean, I read an article not too long ago, where there was a teacher who literally let them have sex in the classroom. It says:)
Students, who will be encouraged to take the course between the age of 14 and 16, are taught about the age at which someone can access sexual health services “without parental consent”.
Another question asks pupils to outline “two things it’s important to remember when using a condom” (A: I guess it's don't buy it from China, that's my little joke) and list two places where emergency contraception, such as the morning after pill, may be obtained. (A: For abortion, you see.)
A further section focuses on HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases. Pupils are asked how HIV can be transmitted and to outline one possible consequence of not having Chlamydia treated.
Norman Wells, from the Family Education Trust, said: “In spite of its name, this new qualification is more about promoting sexual experimentation and the use of contraception by children than it is about promoting sexual health.
(A: Well, absolutely, because it was a con from the beginning, sexual education. You have to go into the Socialist literature to find it all out. They were explicit about their agenda. It says here:)
“The only sure way of avoiding sexually transmitted infections is to keep sexual intimacy within a faithful lifelong relationship, yet this course makes no mention of marriage or of commitment and faithfulness.
(A: Well, of course. I've just explained that. That's the Socialist agenda. That is the world agenda, for the general masses. That's also what Julian Huxley said, the first CEO of UNESCO. He was also a champion of Planned Parenthood and abortion on demand. He got awards from them. But he said they could rut like rabbits, he said, the children. When they got through with their indoctrination, they could rut basically, in the fields, whatever, as long as they didn't have children. That was okay, that was fine. That's what they wanted them to do. Because the more mates that they have for a night or whatever, the less chance they'll bond with any particular one down the road.)
A spokesman for the Department for Education said: “There are hundreds of qualifications that are accredited by Ofqual for a plethora of different ages, abilities and settings. We rightly trust heads to choose what is best for their pupils."
(A: Well, the heads are all headmasters because they've gone along with the entire curriculum for everything, from UNESCO, again, the United Nations. It says:)
Most students already receive sex
education at secondary school, although Labour dropped plans to make lessons
compulsory in primaries earlier this year as part of the Parliamentary
“wash-up” before the General Election.
Actually, they're going ahead anyway, because it was part of the United Nations Treaty they signed. I read that thing earlier this year. And it's going to go a lot further than that, believe you me. You are already in Brave New World. For those who haven't seen the movies, get a copy. There's different versions of them, along the same path. We're already there, and that was written, the book was written in 1933. We are there now.
Now, New Zealand, again, no country is being left alone out of this big, wonderful New World Order. And they didn't have enough terrorism and so on to take all the rights away from the public over there, so this is what's coming up, you see:
New Zealand government uses earthquake to enact sweeping new powers
(A: October 13th)
New Zealand’s parliament voted unanimously last month to pass the Canterbury Earthquake Response and Recovery Act (CERRA), which gives government ministers the power to override almost any law in the country’s statute books. The conservative National Party government pushed through the legislation in a single evening, with the full support of the Maori Party, the opposition Labour Party and the Green Party.
Both the government and opposition asserted that the sweeping powers were needed to provide assistance to the city of Christchurch and the surrounding Canterbury region, which was hit by a destructive 7.1 magnitude earthquake on September 4. But the Act does not provide any additional funding or assistance for the disaster victims, many of whom are living in badly damaged houses and have received little or no government assistance.
Rather, this anti-democratic legislation concentrates wide powers in the hands of ministers (A: That's politicians.) and their unelected advisers. It sidelines parliament and effectively rules out public debate on measures that potentially have far reaching consequences. The provisions of the CERRA will remain in place until April 2012. For the next 18 months, as one columnist for the National Business Review put it, “a few ministers, so long as they can link it to the Canterbury earthquake, can make laws about almost everything by signing a bit of paper”.
The government is using the disaster as an opportunity to test anti-democratic forms of rule which could later be applied more broadly. It is already carrying out a savage program of austerity—including cuts to healthcare and education, attacks on welfare beneficiaries and an increase in the consumption tax—forcing the working class to pay for the global economic crisis. (A: Again, that's the sharing of wealth, you see. We've all signed the treaty under the United Nations to share the wealth, you see.) It has also introduced draconian labour laws to drive down wages and make businesses more profitable and globally competitive. (A: How can you compete with China. Hmm?) The ruling elite in New Zealand, as in every other country, is acutely aware that as it deepens these attacks it must prepare to confront resistance from workers.
And it's ironic, because this was put out by the World Socialist website, who would do just the same if they were in power. Ha, ha, ha. Ah dear, it takes two sides to tango, eh? And then of course too, we have this wonderful article here. I'm sure it will just warm your hearts, because we're all worried about the bankers who lost their shirts apparently, and had to get bailed out by the tax payers who will be in debt forever because all that money was borrowed from other bankers, strangely enough, to pay those bankers who lost it all. Here it is. It's Thursday the 14th of October, Mail Online.
Greedier than ever: Wall Street bankers to pocket record-breaking $91 BILLION just two years on from financial crisis
Wall Street firms will hand out £91billion in salaries, bonuses and perks, according to research published today.
The payouts – 4 per cent up on last year and 24 per cent up on 2006 – come just two years after the collapse of Lehman Brothers and the near meltdown of the financial system.
A pay report by America’s Wall Street Journal shows that 26 of the U.S. financial centre’s leading 35 firms are planning to increase pay this year – even though one in ten Americans is jobless and a second recession is possible.
(A: Well, it's definitely coming. It says:)
Who wants some? Traders on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange are likely to see their pay and bonuses climb to record levels.
The bonanza is likely to infuriate President Barack Obama (A: Oh, come on, come on. He's one of the boys. Look who's backing him. Look who's all behind him there. He's just a front man for who? We all know. It says:) Barack Obama and U.S. taxpayers, who have bailed out the banking industry with billions of dollars.
(A: In gifts, I add, gifts. Take these grants, just to help you along. Don't bother paying it back folks.)
It could also escalate the bonus ‘arms
race’ in the City of London, where pay is closely tied to awards on Wall
Well, I'm waiting to see what London will dish out. London is better at it though. They know when to keep quiet about things and hush it up, and so on, as these guys with the treble chins and the potbellies walk out of those big offices there, into their massive limos to be driven off by the chauffeurs. That's the real world we're living in. And the public say nothing. Why? Because they don't know what to do about it. Well, what do you do about it? You should be on the darn streets is what you should be doing about it. Because if you don't get on the streets now, while you've got a chance to do what you have to do, and tell them where to go with this B.S. that they're pushing down on you, with more taxes to come, and all the rest of it, into utter poverty. When you start rioting when you're in poverty, you know you're going to be getting taken care of very efficiently by all the military forces they've prepared for the eventuality of such a thing. So do it while you're healthy and you can still feed yourself, and you're not starving, and you're thinking clearly. And protest, and protest, and tell them, no more. No more of this nonsense. No more of this system. Because if government does not represent the public, who do they represent? And if it's not you, you shouldn't be serving them, because see, you're serving the government, not the government serving you. How easy it is to have it trained out of you. Isn't it? How easy it is to have trained out of you through entertaining movies and TV series and all the rest of it, with little quotes given over and over, repetition, repetition, until you start to think that government is all powerful, and it's bigger than you.
You know what government is? It's someone's idea. That's what government is. It's an idea. And they can only go along with anything with your permission. Even when they pass the laws which persecute you, you have to acquiesce to allow them to do it, by saying nothing. That's how you acquiesce in law. You say nothing, well that means, well, we told them legally, and they didn't say a darn thing, so now we're doing what we want. We know the agenda. Those who listen to this show certainly do know the agenda. And you know where it's to go with the agenda, and down to food rationing, and all the rest of it, and cramming the public into the already overcrowded old cities, up until the 2030-odd period, where they start to die off massively according to the think tanks for the military. And then out of it will come their big, wonderful utopias, and no doubt, they'll just demolish the old cities, the old cities. That's why they haven't been repairing them for the last twenty years. That's why you've had potholes for the last 25 years, because this is a very old plan. Very old plan. But they've got money to throw across the planet. Your own local governments are giving money across the planet, have been for years to other countries, to help these people here, and help these people there. Is that what they're there for? No. I don't think so. I haven't seen that put in stone anywhere. But it's up to you. It's up to you what you will tolerate.
You've watched the creation of a police state. You've watched the setting up of a police state long before 9/11, and here you are in it, with guys out of the military, chomping at the bit, drugged up as they are with prescription drugs and non-prescription drugs, waiting to go. So you should be protesting like crazy now, by the millions. By the millions to throw this off course. If you don't, then you don't stand a chance in hell once the chaos starts, and you're begging for food from the very abusers, the government, who made it all happen, and the abused victim always turns to the abuser for help. It's about time that was put an end to.
Now, there was an elderly woman who was one of the top reporters, one of the most long-lived reporters in America, who was in the papers I think last, oh, earlier this year anyway. I read an article at the time. She's given another interview, for Press TV. And it was all because she just mentioned Israel, in the wrong place at the wrong time, and that was the end of her very long career in political journalism. And it says here:
Former White House veteran reporter, Helen Thomas, has criticized the United States for not allowing people to talk about Israeli policies against the Palestinian people.
Back with more, after this break.
Hi folks, I'm back, and we're Cutting Through the Matrix. Now, this veteran reporter, Helen Thomas, incredible, she's in her 90s. She said this:
"You cannot criticize Israel in this country and survive," Helen Thomas said in an interview with Ohio station WMRN-AM that aired on Tuesday.
In June, Thomas had been forced to resign after she told Israelis to leave the occupied Palestinian territories.
During the Jewish Heritage Celebration at the White House, (A: Bad place to bring it up, eh?) Thomas said "Tell them (Israelis) to get the hell out of Palestine."
In her new interview, she said the comments were "exactly what I thought," even though she realized soon afterward that it was the end of her job.
"(It was) very hard for the first two weeks. After that, I came out of my coma," Thomas said.
The 90-year-old correspondent gave up her front row seat in the White House press room, where she had often pointed questions at 10 presidents, going back to Dwight Eisenhower.
Thomas worked as a correspondent for United Press International (UPI) for 57 years from 1943 to 2000. She then joined Hearst Newspapers Corporation who owns 15 daily newspapers as a columnist.
She was the first female officer of the National Press Club, the first female member and president of the White House Correspondents Association.
been a fixture at White House press conferences for decades and was often
allowed to ask the first question.
But she said the wrong thing; that was it. She says, "You can't criticize Israel in this country and survive." And that's true. It's too powerful. Too much money behind the lobby in the U.S. and everywhere else for that matter, and there's no such thing as I say, as toleration amongst peoples when it comes to criticizing certain groups. You just can't do it. That's what I'm saying, this liberal system and society we live in, liberals are great for tolerance, tolerance, tolerance, but they're the most intolerant of all when it comes to people having an opinion, or even asking a question. And that's the con of them, the big lie of them.
I was going to touch on too, about another court case, in Canada, Alberta it was, where another eugenics sterilization victim has sued the government, that's the second one so far, for being sterilized in the '60s. It was still going on in the '70s. It was a wrongful sterilization. They just deemed her incompetent, unfit, etc, and she seems quite naturally, a decent IQ and all the rest of it, no problem with her work record, but she was sterilized none the less. Forcible sterilization by law, and that is what they want to bring back folks. That's what they want to bring back. What do you think is behind, "oh, there's too many people on the planet"? What they mean is there's too many of the wrong sort of people on the planet. And one U.S. high court judge actually said that. I've read her quotes before. And we're all silent, aren't we? All silent about it. They can't mean me. I mean too much to me for it to happen to me. That's what we think, isn't it. And yet, what was it again that Delgado said, the FBI, CIA guy who was sticking wires in folks' brains, years ago, using remote controls, etc, thought it was wonderful. They were doing that at Tavistock in England too, according to Aldous Huxley, who thought that was wonderful as well, back in the 50s. He says:
"We need a program of psycho-surgery for political control of our society. The purpose is physical control of the mind. Everyone who deviates from the given norm can be surgically mutilated. The individual may think that the most important reality is his own existence, but this is only his personal point of view. Man does not have the right to develop his own mind. We must electronically control the brain. Someday armies and generals will be controlled by electronic stimulation of the brain." by Delgado, Director of Neuro-Psychiatry at Yale University Medical School, 1974.
