THE FINANCIAL ELITE: PART III

Dear Friend of Radio Liberty,

"The Trilateral Commission is . . . intended to be the vehicle for multinational consolidation of the commercial and banking interests by seizing control of the political government of the United States."
Senator Barry Goldwater, "With No Apologies, 1979 [1]

"Even the most affluent countries will confront shrinking resources. Each will have to redefine its national priorities. An international order will emerge if a system of compatible priorities comes into being. . . . The nadir of the existing international financial system coincides with simultaneous political crises around the globe. Never have so many transformations occurred at the same time. . . . The alternative to a new international order is chaos."
Henry Kissinger (TC-CFR-BB), International Herald Tribune, January 12, 2009 [2]

"The crisis affects Americans' ability to pay their bills, to secure their retirement, to continue their educations, and to provide for their families. . . . Shrinking retirement funds have left millions of retired people to wonder how they will pay basic expenses and millions more to wonder if they must continue working until they die."
First Report: Congressional Oversight Panel For Economic Stabilization, December 10, 2008 [3]

"The Panel's initial concerns about the TARP have only grown, exacerbated by the shifting explanations of its purposes and the tools used by Treasury."
Second Report: Congressional Oversight Panel For Economic Stabilization, January 9, 2009, p.5 [4]

"This is the first bear market we've witnessed in which there has literally been no place to hide. . . . Harvard University's legendary endowment fund lost over 30% this year (2008-ed)..., the California Public Employees' Retirement System's blue chip portfolio has already lost over 30% of its value . . . a drop of $81.4 billion."
The Dines Report, December 12, 2008 [5]

Why is the U.S. economy collapsing? Why didn't Henry Paulson use the $700 billion TARP funds to purchase the defective sub-prime mortgage bonds, and the other financial instruments, that precipitated the economic meltdown? Who got the $2 trillion Ben Bernanke distributed?

Before I answer those questions, you must understand the United States has two separate governments - a visible government and an invisible government led by what I call the Brotherhood of Darkness (BOD). The visible American government derives its authority from the U.S. Constitution, and enforces the laws of our nation. The invisible government controls the commercial and banking interests of the United States, and doesn't abide by our laws. What is their goal? The leaders of the invisible government want to establish a new economic system, create a world government, and destroy Christianity. [6]

Senator Barry Goldwater warned the American people about the danger posed by our "non-elected rulers" (the Trilateral Commission and the Council on Foreign Relations) in his book, With No Apologies (1979) where he wrote:

"The Trilateral Commission is international. . . . It is intended to be the vehicle for multinational consolidation of the commercial and banking interests (of the world - ed) by seizing control of the political government of the United States." [7]

David Rockefeller, Zbigniew Brzezinski, and Henry Kissinger organized the Trilateral Commission (TC) in 1973, recruited many of the most powerful people in the world, and set out to seize control of "the political government of the United States." Jimmy Carter joined the Trilateral Commission in 1973, and three years later he became President of the United States. Twenty-five people with ties to the North American group of the Trilateral Commission (which had about 80 members at the time) served in key positions in the Carter administration [8], and since that time either the President of the United States and/or the Vice-President of the United States has been a member of the North American group of the TC, which currently has about 87 U.S. members - until the advent of the Obama administration. [9]

The World Bank is one of the most powerful financial institutions in the world. There have been seven presidents of the World Bank since 1973; six of them were members of the North American group of the Trilateral Commission: Robert McNamara (1968-1981), A.W. Clausen (1981-1986), Barber Conable (1986-1991), James Wolfenson (1995-2005), Paul Wolfowitz (2005-2007), and Robert Zoellick (2007-present). There have been four chairmen of the Federal Reserve System during that period; three of them were (or are) members of the North American group of the Trilateral Commission: Arthur Burns (1970-1978), Paul Volker (1978-1987), and Alan Greenspan (1987-2006). [10] Why is that important? Because the World Bank, the U.S. Treasury, and the Federal Reserve System precipitated the financial tsunami that is sweeping across the world today.

Will President Obama exclude members of the invisible government (the TC, the CFR, the Bilderbergers [BB], and the Group of 30 [GP 30] from his administration, or will they hold key positions in our visible government?

My December 2008 letter listed the names of thirteen people who will direct the course of the Obama administration; all but one of them (Hillary Clinton) are members of the BOD. Six are members of the TC, and Hillary Clinton's husband is a member of the CFR, was a member of the TC, and attended the 1992 Bilderberger meeting where he was selected to become President of the United States.

Subsequently, nine people have been chosen to hold key positions in the Obama State Department. James Steinberg (TC-CFR-BB) will be the Deputy Secretary of State, and The New York Times published the names of the other candidates. I have listed their affiliations where applicable.

William J. Burns: CFR
Kurt M. Campbell: TC-CFR
Richard N. Haass: TC-President CFR-BB
Christopher R. Hill
Richard C. Holbrooke: CFR-BB
Daniel C. Kurtzer: CFR
Dennis B. Ross: TC-CFR
Wendy Sherman
[11]

Six of the eight candidates are members of the BOD, three are members of the Trilateral Commission, and the incoming Secretary of State is married to a former member of the TC, a group that was organized in 1973 to seize "control of the political government of the United States." What is their goal? Henry Kissinger's (TC-CFR-BB) January 12, 2009, article (International Herald Tribune) reveals what lies ahead. [12] He wrote:

"As the new U.S. administration prepares to take office amid grave financial and international crises, it may seem counterintuitive to argue that the very unsettled nature of the international system generates a unique opportunity for creative diplomacy. . . .

Even the most affluent countries will confront shrinking resources. Each will have to redefine its national priorities. An international order will emerge if a system of compatible priorities comes into being. It will fragment disastrously if the various priorities cannot be reconciled. . . .

The nadir of the existing international financial system coincides with simultaneous political crises around the globe. Never have so many transformations occurred at the same time in so many different parts of the world and been made globally accessible via instantaneous communication. The alternative to a new international order is chaos. . .

An international order can be permanent only if its participants have a share not only in building but also in securing it. In this manner, America and its potential partners have a unique opportunity to transform a moment of crisis into a vision of hope."
(italics added-ed) [13]

Henry Kissinger claims the nations have two choices. They can either surrender their sovereignty and join "the international order," or fragment and face "chaos." Are there other alternatives? Certainly. We can expose the BOD's effort to destroy the world economy, and end their financial control of our nations. If we succeed, they will flee like vampires at the first rays of dawn.

When Henry Paulson (CFR-BB) refused to use the TARP funds to purchase the defective financial vehicles that precipitated the economic collapse, Congress created the Congressional Oversight Panel for Economic Stabilization, and asked the Panel to determine how the $700 billion was spent.

I have reproduced part of their December 10, 2008, "First Report."

  The Panel's statements are printed in bold type; my response is printed in italics.

"The U.S. and the global economy have been in a steadily accelerating downward spiral since the early spring of 2007. The American family is at the epicenter of this crisis.

The headlines may belong to the financial markets and mega-institutions, but the recession has visited every household in the country. The crisis affects Americans' ability to pay their bills, to secure their retirement, to continue their educations, and to provide for their families. The unemployment rate is the highest it has been in fourteen years. In the last three months, 1.2 million Americans lost their jobs; 533,000 in November, 2008 alone. Service sector employment levels, in particular, fell far faster than expected last month. One in ten mortgage holders is now in default, unable to make payments on their homes. More than 200,000 families and small businesses filed for bankruptcy protection in the last two months. Middle and lower-income families have watched nervously as reductions in state funding threaten college access and affordability. Retail sales continue to fall, credit card defaults are rising, and saving rates hover at zero. Shrinking retirement funds have left millions of retired people to wonder how they will pay basic expenses and millions more to wonder if they must continue working until they die." [14]

What caused the economic collapse? The privately owned Central Bank that controls the U.S. economy (the Federal Reserve System is controlled by the BOD) expanded the money supply, lowered interest rates, and encouraged people to purchase homes and products they couldn't afford. Then, when the "engineered" housing bubble burst, the FED restricted Small Business Loans, discouraged lending, didn't purchase the housing bonds that precipitated the crash, started paying interest on bank reserves, and precipitated the financial collapse.

"A short summary of the economic history of the past few months is grim."

* Credit, when it is available, has become dramatically more expensive for all borrowers, and some worry it will get even more expensive next year." [15]

The major banks restricted loans and raised their interest rates. Loans are readily available for BOD industries.

* U.S. stock markets have lost more than 40% of their value over the past year, and markets elsewhere in the world have also declined sharply. [16]

The Working Group on Financial Markets (The Plunge Protection Team - PPT) has manipulated the stock market.. I believe the PPT engineered the drastic decline in stock prices to promote an atmosphere of fear and uncertainty.

* In September, the federal government took control of the two largest mortgage financing intermediaries, generally know as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. [17]

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have been insolvent for many years, but they were allowed to operate because they helped the BOD destroy the financial structure of our nation.

* All three major U.S.- based auto companies have told Congress they face the threat of imminent bankruptcy. [18]

GM recently opened a $300 million production plant in Russia, opened their eighth automotive plant in China, and are currently building three automotive plants in Brazil that will work with their other plants in Latin America. Why is that happening? The BOD is transferring U.S. manufacturing to Russia, China, Brazil, and Mexico because they want to impoverish the American people.

* The largest U.S. commercial bank, Citigroup, and the largest U.S. insurance company, AIG, have both received substantial infusions of capital from the U.S. government, with AIG under threat of imminent bankruptcy.

* Two major investment banks, Bear Stearns and Merrill Lynch, have disappeared in mergers. One major investment bank, Lehman Brothers, has filed for protection under the bankruptcy laws. The two largest remaining investment banks, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley, have transformed themselves into bank holding companies." [19]

I believe the BOD destroyed Bear Stearns because they wanted to precipitate the current economic crisis. Why did Bear Stearns collapse? The bank held $17 billion in reserves during the early part of March 2008, yet someone (the BOD?) circulated a rumor that Bear Stearns was insolvent, and the major investors withdrew their funds. Bear Stearns collapsed several days later (March 15, 2008). Could the bank have been saved? Certainly. The Fed could have loaned Bear Stearns the funds needed to replenish their reserves, but the FED didn't intervene. Instead, the Fed (the BOD), gave J.P Morgan Chase (a Rockefeller-controlled bank) $30 billion so they could absorb Bear Stearns, and that was the first in a series of financial failures that precipitated the current economic meltdown. [20]

I believe the Lehman Brothers bank could have been saved in September 2008, but Henry Paulson (CFR-BB) and Ben Bernanke (BB) let the bank collapse so their friends in the BOD could purchase Lehman Brothers' assets for pennies on the dollar. [21]

* The largest thrift savings banks, Washington Mutual and IndyMac, have been taken over by their regulator.

* The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation has placed 171 banks, with combined assets of $116 billion, on the problem list as of September 30, 2008. [22]

When Congress enacted the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act on October 3, 2008, the legislators believed the $700 billion would be used to purchase the defective debt instruments that precipitated the economic collapse, but that didn't happen. Why? Because Henry Paulson lied to the American people when he told them the financial markets were frozen, and the major banks couldn't lend money. Why do I believe that Henry Paulson lied to the American people? Because the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis reviewed the FED's market statistics at that time, and released a report (October 2008) that claims the U.S. financial markets were functioning properly. Two months later Celent reviewed the FED statistics and came to the same conclusion. [23]

* * * * *

I began this letter with four questions. At this point I will answer them.

(1) Why is the U.S. economy collapsing?

I believe the BOD precipitated the economic collapse because they want to force national governments to relinquish their sovereignty, and join the "new world order." Why would rational men do that? Because we aren't dealing with rational men, we are dealing with men who are fulfilling the quest of the Ancient Mystery Religions. I suggest you obtain a copy of Henry Kissinger's January 12, 2009, article, and read it several times. Then read Chapter 33 of Senator Barry Goldwater's book, With No Apologies.

(2) Why didn't Henry Paulson (CFR-BB) purchase the defective sub-prime mortgage bonds, and stop the financial meltdown?

The BOD doesn't want to stop the financial meltdown.

(3) Who got the $2 trillion that Ben Bernanke distributed?

Henry Paulson (CFR-BB) and Ben Bernanke (BB) won't reveal where the money went. They claim the information is "classified" and a "state secret." [24]

I believe we are witnessing the largest transfer of wealth in recorded history.

* * * * *

The Congressional Oversight Panel asked the U.S. Treasury to answer 10 questions in an effort to determine how the TARP funds were spent. The Panel released its Second Report on January 9, 2009. The Report stated:

"When Congress authorized the Panel, it specifically requested that the Panel evaluate 'the effectiveness of foreclosure mitigations efforts'. . . . The Panel's initial concerns about the TARP have only grown, exacerbated by the shifting explanations of its purposes and the tools used by Treasury. It is not enough to say that the goal is the stabilization of the financial markets and the broader economy. That goal is widely accepted. The question is how the infusion of billions of dollars to an insurance con- glomerate or a credit card company advances both the goal of financial stability and the well-being of taxpayers, including homeowners threatened by foreclosure, people losing their jobs, and families unable to pay their credit cards." [25]

Why did the U.S. Treasury refuse to tell the Congressional Panel exactly where the TARP funds went, or who received them?

You can access the Congressional Oversight Panel's Second Report on the Internet. Please read it, and share the information with your friends. If you don't have access to the Internet, you can purchase a copy of the report from Radio Liberty.

James Dines' analysis of the tragedy should be widely read. He wrote:

"This is the first bear market we've witnessed in which there has literally been no place to hide. . . . As proof, even Harvard University's legendary endowment fund lost over 30% this year (2008-ed), and is still counting. As for the nation's largest pension fund, the California Public Employees Retirement System's blue-chip portfolio has already lost over 30% of its value . . . a drop of $81.4 billion. Even Warren Buffet, the so-called 'sage of Omaha,' saw his flagship company Berkshire Hathaway plummet 47% from its 2008 peak. Ninety-one-year old billionaire Kirk Kerkorian told friends that he had 'lived one year too long' after he took a 71% loss on his investment in Ford Motor to protect the fall of his stake in MGM Mirage in Las Vegas. . . . Hong Kong's Richard Li, owner of Hong Kong's biggest phone company (PCCW), which was worth $1.4 billion early this year (2008-ed), has seen its price collapse by 97%." [26]

The financial contraction continues; it is taking a terrible toll. Millions of people have lost half of their earthly possessions, other people have lost everything they own. Some billionaires have become millionaires, and many millionaires wonder if they will have sufficient funds to care for their families in the years that lie ahead. The wicked men who precipitated the current problem, the leaders of the TC, CFR, BB and GP30, want to use the financial tragedy to establish a new economic system, a world government, and a world religion. We must oppose them. What can you do? You can copy Henry Kissinger's January 12, 2009, article, and show it to your friends. You can watch Christ Pinto's new DVD, Eye of the Phoenix, because it reveals the true cause of the economic crisis. You can copy my letters and programs, and distribute them. Will that help? Certainly! The Financial Elite (Brotherhood of Darkness) fear the American people will discover what they have done. We must make that happen.

What else can you do? The growing financial crisis will provide an opportunity to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with non believers, and bring a spiritual revival to our nation. In addition, we must help the growing number of impoverished people, and fill their spiritual needs because:

"When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say,
It is well, it is well with my soul.

Though Satan should buffet, tho' trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul." [27]

Barbara and I sincerely appreciate your faithful support, and your continued prayers.

Yours in Christ,

Stanley Monteith
