A 12-Year-Old Girl Crushes The Canadian (and American) Dream

Tyler Durden's picture

When Ron Paul stands up in front of a crowd and explains the fictional-reserve banking system's unreality, some listen, many shrug and bury their heads. When ZeroHedge does the same, comments are heavy but change is slow to come. But when a 12-year-old girl, in a little over five minutes can explain the total farce that is our monetary system, surely people have to listen and break free of the matrix. Victoria Grant, 12, explains how "The banks and the government have colluded to financially enslave the people of Canada," and as CTV notes, 'Grant lays out a brief history of the Canadian banking system, referencing obscure historical figures such as former Vancouver mayor Gerald McGeer and explaining that the Bank of Canada held primary control over government lending until the 1970's. Starting then, she says, governments began borrowing from private banks instead at considerably higher interest rates than those available through the central bank. The result, Grant argues, is a rapidly increasing national debt. The pint-sized pundit is quick to offer a solution. "If the Canadian Government needs money, they can borrow it directly from the Bank of Canada," she says. " ... Canadians would again prosper with real money as the foundation of our economic structure." The truth is out there - whether it comes from Alan Simpson, Ron Paul, ZeroHedge, or a 12-year-old Canadian young lady.

To: 101 Years and c....

Perhaps a genetic smoothie like Freddy Kruger?

Hope she doesn't like hot tubs or small plane rides.

And she doesn't even use a teleprompter.

Nice presentation.. nice approach.. she is cute, has the script down pat and delivers it nicely.

If she really understood it though, she would know how screwed she is and would be screaming and bawling as if somebody just cut the head off her puppy.

I believe she does understand it and very well. I only hope that she stays on task and helps people understand it too...


Until next time,

The world should listen...

I say we place her in charge of the FED.

Some people are born with exceptional intelligence. Obviously she is gifted and understands it.

I love the part where she talks about throwing the money changers out.

This is what America and the world's people need to do with corrupt bankers.

Nobody went to Jail in America for this past crisis. So the list should of those who need to go to Jail.

Lloyd Blankfien.

Hank Paulson.

Neel Kashkari.

Ben Bernankee.

And all the CEO's of Lehman Brothers, Meryl Lynch, Citigroup, AIG, Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Country Wide, JP Morgan, Bear Stearns, Morgan Stanley, Society Generale, Stewart Barney, Deutche Bank, Royal Bank of Scottland, Fannie May, Freddie Mack, and those I left out including Allan Greenspan.

Great speech and for the most part she is correct. Except...the Bank of Canada is not owned by the people of Canada but rather it is owned by the government with shares held by the "Minister" of Finance:
"The Bank was founded in 1934 as a privately owned corporation. In 1938, it became a Crown corporation belonging to the federal government. Since that time, the Minister of Finance has held the entire share capital issued by the Bank."

The MoF is a "minister of the crown" and thus, the Queen of Canada is the real owner of the Bank of Canada.
"In our parliamentary system of government, the executive branch -- the Prime Minister/Premier and cabinet -- is responsible to the legislative branch -- House of Commons/legislature -- and, by extension, to the people. Whether the government is federal or provincial, authority to govern ultimately flows from the Crown."

Welcome to the rabbit hole!

The sun never really set on the British Empire.

It now just uses American aircraft carriers to do it's bidding, which is quite smart when you think about it. Post American Revolution, the world now hates America with a passion for interefering with its freedoms yet good old England still wields its influence. All the influence.


as for America, 'land of the free' the word 'suckers' springs to mind...

Going to be tough to make her look bad when she is so obviously right...  Will be curious to see if the MSM covers this at all, and see what kind of spin they apply...


CH1's picture

Will be curious to see if the MSM covers this at all.

I'm taking bets.

spine001's picture

They will just ignore it. That is how the MSM deals with these things, they just ignore them. But they can't ignore videos that go viral on youtube and has what it takes to do just that, let's help it a little bit by forwarding to all of our friends... :)


Until next time,

Watch for the Globe and Mail to run 3 hit pieces on that poor girl for her negative views on the Canadian banks...

Not if they require their web presence obliterated, not just taken down.

That is good.

"So there is hope for youth in the world then."

Don't get your hopes up. For every Victoria, there are 1,000 Jakes (idiot kid on "2.5 Men").

The thing the gold bugs will never understand is that his role is the same as gold itself. a first order control system, on the supply of money. Timmay is going to bail out spain, even though they are the best shiny miners that ever existed. Read your history folks!

We should have 2nd and 3rd order control systems. After that, you end up with the 80,000 page roman/greek/US tax code.

The relevance to this girl, is that she pointed out the adversarialiness of force. "The private bank creates money such that the government can be justfied in taxation schemes."

Ron Paul/Buddy Roemer 2012.

everyone be very carefull here. don't even think about commenting on the u.s. goverment printing anything say like UNITED STATES NOTES. for you will get junked and branded a loony tune. oh yea, be very afraid of you fellow readers. you know the poster that says......oh great take the money creation away from the bankers and give it to the........GOVERMENT!!!!!!! i have said many times that this will be the only way to "try" to make people whole after this wholesale looting of not only my country but the rest also.

I remember when there were silver certificates in the wallet. Maybe someday again.

snarc: The re training program has  been set forth by Mitt ... 14% ... Romney. If you dont like it, go friggin Galt. Reardon will back your ass up.

wisefool's picture

I never thought the irony would make its way here (ZH). Soap is made from Aztec "shacks" but an 80,000 page tax code is "just right."

If the spanish want to invade "the Maine" again, they are fubared, cause we have congresspeople that keep law from that era on the books for this specific purpose. Long live QE2 on currency!

And done without a teleprompter .......someone from the US should take note.

She didn't fill me with hope, though.

Is that why she is reading something off to her left?

never-the-less she nails it

HungrySeagull's picture

That pretty much does. I understand at 14 they are legal adults in Canada... unless the Government has raised the bar.

Oh, Can-ada!

There's a smiling queen on your currency...

Zthat how it goes?


JOYFUL's picture

Hard to explain the power of imagery on the impressionable young mind Gene.

one of the biggest moment of my childhood was sitting on my dad's shoulders getting a glimpse of Herself n the Royal Consort on the steps of the train at Orillia Station. One of the few times I can remember a real bzzz in a crowd of Canadians...sometin close to a feeling of 'togetherness,' almost, yu know, nationalist like! Very colonial we was.

Pretty sure it musta been the same for the Aussie, Kiwis, maybe even the rest of the colonials...we all sang the same anthem every morning in school...

it's been kind of a shit sandwich ever since, finding out how basically evil all the old icons turned out to be, and how stupid our scots\scots-irish, n all the rest of the imperial cannon fodder antecedents were to go out n build an empire for folks what thought us dumb as mud....oh well, no one said deconditioning would be easy!

HungrySeagull's picture

Take a look at the Tenessee Valley Power Projects that dragged the people into the modern era. A people who have governed themselves well enough until then.

I vote for her as Ron Paul's VP running mate

Xibalba's picture

Too bad she can't vote or trade.  Just the way the old wall likes it....

BlueCollaredOne's picture

<------ She understands what she is saying

<------ She memorized a speech daddy wrote

Thomas's picture

Maybe, but I found it relatively uncompelling. It was nothing like that speech given by the 15-year-old Nigel Farage clone. That boy had the gift of gab.

I agree with you, makes no difference to me as long as the message gets out.  I was just curious and wanted to see what fellow ZH'ers thought.
