First qualification to be his client. Can afford to pay $75,000.

Last qualification to be his client. Can afford to pay $75,000 and willing to keep mouth shut.

Clearly someone in the second category leaks like Greenspan's bladder (so I hear).

I think that it comes as a surprise to many, even those who are well versed in the failings of man-made institutions, that our government is at the center of an organized criminal syndicate.

It is now not a question of if, but of when; the whole thing is coming down. Frankly, the insiders are probably amazed that it has lasted this long. Credit control of essential mass media and expert manipulation of key psychological triggers.

The bigger question that remains is much the same as posed to the dog who finally catches the car: ok, so now what are supposed to do?

I think that it comes as a surprise to many, even those who are well versed in the failings of man-made institutions, that our government is at the center of an organized criminal syndicate.

Our social and political programming runs very very deep. Most of us have no idea how ingrained it is into our very fabric, this indoctrination which starts with our parents proudly teaching us what they were programed to believe. It then progresses through the 12 primary grades and out into society. For those among us who need or want extra lessons, there's always college and grad school, where we directly pay for our programming. And all of this is reinforced through our mass media and "free" press.

For myself, the realization came when my son turned 12 and I suddenly realized that I had crippled him for life simply by being a "good" father. I had taught him to be a good and industrious slave. That was the straw that broke this camels back. No longer did I wish to inflict my conditioning upon anyone else. This was where I vowed to wake up and never turn back.

We must all get to the point where we become willing, no desperate, to erase everything we think we know before we can begin to learn the things we need to know. The pain we feel during this process is not the learning but the un-learning. It's never easy to tear apart of very belief system.

Then there is the isolation that has to be pushed through.  On my journey I quickly realized friends and family would either not make it or not yet ready to make it.  So I had to keep my views largely to myself, or just be seen as crazy (With family I picked the crazy route).  Thinking as an individual has a certain amount of solitude built into it.  To me that was the hardest part, knowing that most would see me as mad if I told them the way I was seeing the world, even if they agreed with all the facts leading to my conclusions.

My brother and I know the feeling. We went through this whole "Chicken Little" phase where we tried our damnedest to get our friends and family to see and understand what is happening—and what's about to happen—to little avail. We've met with enough ridicule to realize that it's best if we just keep our traps shut and continue buying shiny, inedible metal (bitchez!). It's discouraging seeing everyone standing on the tracks, wondering why the ground is shaking, and unwilling to turn around and see the freight train coming up behind them. When we go to the bar, we've got nobody to talk to about this stuff but eachother.

Welcome to the fellowship.
There however comes a great deal of serenity after a period of time, born of comfort with one's own self, character that was unknown theretofore.  Importantly attached is a knowledge that one alone, is not powerful enough to change the world and as such, a degree of humility and peace that after some time becomes attractive to others.  It is at that point others shall begin seeking one's opinion and therein, the valued exchange of opinion and views begin in earnest. 
Do not fight the isolation.  Embrace it as a powerful learning experience, for ultimately we intuitively understand and are able to explain that which used to baffle us.

You have wonderfully explained the concept of "knowing", something that is extremely attractive to the lost and frightened. By fully, completely and without reservation accepting our isolation and rejection, we become infinitely stronger, thus setting up within what can only be called a "strange attractor", what others may call Karma or "presence".

Once we have passed several times through the heat of the flames of rejection and isolation, each time followed by a soaking in our own tears of frustration, will we be hardened by this tempering process. Only then will others seek us out for this inner wisdom. In our present condition, all we appear to the disenfranchised is walking talking bad news.

We must give up all thoughts of control. Only then will we be able to gain inner peace, thus removing once and for all the need or desire for control. This new inner strength will become self evident to all that pass. This is real power, the kind that comes from within, from our own willingness to suffer and grow. It can never be taken, borrowed or loaned. It can only be shared and freely given.

Our programming and indoctrination goes well beyond "just" our beliefs about the economic and social systems.

For example, we "believe" there are diseases that make us sick, rather than understanding that we make ourselves sick. Or at least we make ourselves extremely vulnerable to sickness. And on and on and on.

This is just some bunk-ass shit here tho.

There are diseases which will make you sick even if you were previously in good health.  Reality trumps belief

Wow, nice to see you have been triggered to respond in such an angry way. I said.

For example, we "believe" there are diseases that make us sick, rather than understanding that we make ourselves sick. Or at least we make ourselves extremely vulnerable to sickness. And on and on and on.

Where do I say there is no disease or that disease won't make you sick because I don't see it? And please define "good health". Do you exclude mental health? Do our brains and our mental attitude, our state of consciousness as some would call it, have something to do with our health and our ability to remain healthy?

So you're saying someone who's severely depressed has the same ability to ward off illness as someone who is not depressed? Or that some people don't, and can't possibly, make themselves ill for a variety of reasons?

You're right, B9K9. This is more than a leak story, more than a breach of trust.  The Fed is simply an elaborate getaway car… a vehicle designed by a mob to be used to steal trillions from Americans.  How many times must it be repeated: the Fed uses control of the money supply to manipulate markets and reports, constantly pushing and pulling all U.S. financial policy to override legitimate supply and demand.

The Fed is owned by a few private bankers: it dominates the entire U.S. government (not the other way around), it operates in total secrecy and its owners and their friends, through their private Fed operations, have become the most obscenely wealthy people on the planet.  And one of the gang slips out with a few secrets.  Please, let’s keep our eye on the ball—the hijacking of America and the world.

Can't these be prosecuted for "Insider Trading" assuming somebody has the "cajones" to do it.  We have all known this crap has been going on.  No congressional investigation wil happen because it is not a republican or democrat at fault (they are both in on it-money takes precedence over party affiliation).   They go after each other, but, when the opportunity to protect the citizens presents itself, these weasels "weasel out".

It's not about cajones, they are united in criminality.  A person does not get to that level without breaking some laws.  That person goes to prosecute and the system eats them alive with their misdeeds.  I'm no fan of Spitzer but he was sniffing around the wrong tree and got nailed for it.  They simply won't let an honest man into a place where he could do damage.

My favorite example, Barney Frank.  Underage brothel being run out of his home.  The media starts and he comes out and threatens to pull down the system with him, Samson style.  They back off and it's business as usual.

Why is everyone so surprised. The problem is the understanding of what government is and how it occured then everything becomes clear. When man the hunter gatherer became a farmer he created fixed property and a surplus wealth flow from his activities. This attaracted predators to kill and steal his property and wealth. Eventually the predators worked out that its better to keep the man alive and just fleece him for as much as he can bear and by offering him protection. The predators then became government---the rest is just various permutations of the same old story line.

I suspect if someone were to conduct an in depth study of what has been said in the past by the likes of Gross and company, they would find there were little clues, call them slips of the tongue, that were all over the place and time. We're just beginning to notice and consciously look for them.

It's sort of like buying a new blue car. Suddenly you see that model and color everywhere.

Look at us...Jesus, all squabbling around, talking about how this or that is illegal, and that "those people" are criminals.  Like a crying kid in a school yard...are we this weak??  It's time to stop feeling so isolated, so alone in our sweet "knowledge" about whats really going on, and get something done.  Everyone is just trying to get ahead of everyone else..with their stupid investments...gold ..silver...everything - all of us sitting alone with our lump of "wealth", cautiously looking out the window at whoever may come to take it. I am sick and disgusted with this lifestyle.

To no avail of course - the elite owns the politicians and nothing but Europe in flames will change their resolve to milk the working class for its last breadcrum.
