Russian Leader Slams US As Western Civilization Nears Collapse
By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers
In a withering speech before members of the Russian Academy of Science in Moscow, Prime Minister Putin [photo top left] branded the United States current monetary policy as “hooliganism” and stated, “We, thankfully or not, cannot print a reserve currency. But what are they (the Americans) doing? They simply spit nails, turn on the printing press and throw money to the world, in order to resolve their urgent problems.”
The United States printing of money out of thin air is called Quantitative Easing (QE) and is an unconventional monetary policy tool used to stimulate their national economy since conventional monetary policy has become ineffective. The US Federal Reserve began their policy of Quantitative Easing by purchasing financial assets from banks and other private sector businesses with new money that it had created electronically, but which has no hard assets backing it up.
Though the US began the practice of creating money out of thin air after the Great Economic Collapse of 2008, it has not been alone as the Bank of England, The European Central Bank and the Bank of Japan have, likewise, over the past nearly 3 years printed in excess of over $4 Trillion in currency that when joined with the $5 Trillion printed by the Americans have left our world awash in paper money that has near worthless value.
According to top Russian economists, the greatest danger posed to the entire global economic structure by the Western nations flooding world markets with near worthless money is the staggering weight it has put on those few currencies that our based on sound measures and backed with real worth, but whose markets are now flooded with foreign buyers seeking safety for their assets, which at the same time is pricing their products out of reach due to the appreciation of their money.
Perhaps no nation has been hurt more than the South American nation of Brazil whose economy remains one of the soundest in the entire world, but whose Finance Minister, Guido Mantega, warned this past week that the “global currency war shows no signs of ending” and are, indeed, about to get worse.
Unbeknownst to the vast majority of Western peoples is that for the first time in history their entire civilization is on the brink of total collapse as the United States, Europe and Japan are all poised to see their economies crash, and there is no one in the world that can stop it.
The worst, by far, of this triad of global powers that underpin the entire Western World is the United States whose debt woes can only be described in the most apocalyptic of terms as their total debt is over $54 Trillion and their unfunded liabilities have reached the impossible to pay amount of $114 Trillion.
Not being understood by the American people about this crisis is that it centers on the $114 Trillion owed to them under what are called entitlement programmes, such as Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare, which all are insolvent as the monies paid into them over these past 5 decades have been looted to pay for wars, corporate subsidies, tax breaks for their elite classes, and too many other extravagant programmes to mention.
Even worse for these unsuspecting Americans is that in the 1960 US Supreme Court Case titled Flemming v. Nestor (363 U.S. 603) the Court ruled that they do not have any “earned rights” to any Social Security benefits, or any other government entitlement programme, as their perceived benefits were a “non-contractual interest.” The Court further declared, “To engraft upon the Social Security system a concept of ‘accrued property rights’ would deprive it of the flexibility and boldness in adjustment to ever-changing conditions which it demands.”
The current “ever-changing conditions” spoken of by the US Supreme Court in their 1960 decision in regards to Social Security, and other entitlement programmes, owed to the American taxpayers, who actually paid for them in the first place, allows their government to wipe them out entirely and, instead, give these Trillions-of-dollars to the “too big to fail” banks, corporations and financial elite who looted all of this wealth in the first place.
It is, also, important to note that since that fateful 1960 US Supreme Court decision the US has used the vast wealth of their Social Security system to wage unrelenting and continued war to expand their empire, but at the cost of destroying their own nation.
Though the United States is the largest of the Western nations rushing toward total economic collapse they are far from being alone as the European Union today stands on the brink of oblivion and the catastrophic disasters of nuclear meltdowns, earthquake and tsunami damage have all but eviscerated Japan from ever rising again as a major power.
To the most catastrophic outcome now being faced by the Western world is their fulfilling the “vision” of the German Marxist political theorists Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels who in their 1848 book Manifesto of the Communist Party (most commonly known as “The Communist Manifesto”) advocated the destruction of capitalistic societies through the exact means we are now witnessing, and which include economic collapse to followed by civil unrest which would then allow the elite classes to seize power and enslave all of their citizens.
Most chilling to note is that the United States today, which was once the freest nation our world has ever known, has now fulfilled 90% of the demands made by Karl Marx, and as we can see evidenced:
The 10 Planks of Communism by Karl Marx
1. Abolition of private property in land and application of all rents of land to public purpose
No one in America owns their land outright anymore as the government has the ability to tax it at an amount unaffordable to the land owner. Through the concept of “eminent domain” the government can, also, seize any private land it so chooses.
2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.
After the ending of World War II the US instituted this tax depriving millions of middle class people from fully realizing the benefit of what they earned. [Note: After throwing off the yoke of communism Russia instituted a flat tax for all of its citizens and businesses.]
3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance
In the US these are called estate taxes or death taxes which keep the middle classes from being able to pass on their accumulated wealth to their heirs.
4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels
This is nothing more than government seizures, IRS property confiscation and the 1997 Crime/Terrorist bill which calls for the imprisonment of terrorists but also for those who speak out against the government. Your LIFE is the most valuable property you have, but the government has the right to take it away because of things that you may say. Consider Senate Bill 3081, the "Enemy Belligerent, Interrogation, Detention, and Prosecution Act of 2010," co-sponsored by Sens. John McCain and Joe Lieberman. The following is actual text from the bill that explains what a belligerent may be and the reasons they can be detained without due process: "(A) The potential threat the individual poses for an attack on civilians or civilian facilities within the United States or upon United States citizens or United States civilian facilities abroad at the time of capture or when coming under the custody or control of the United States… (B) The potential threat the individual poses to United States military personnel or United States military facilities at the time of capture or when coming under the custody or control of the United States…. (C) The potential intelligence value of the individual… (D) Membership in al-Qaida or in a terrorist group affiliated with al-Qaida… (E) Such other matters as the president considers appropriate. . ."
5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with state capital and an exclusive monopoly
The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 created the Federal Reserve, and now the government owns many of the country’s largest banks via bailout money.
6. Centralization of the means of communication and transportation in the hands of the state
The FAA, FCC, and the ICC (Interstate Commerce Commission) are all US government entities that propose to regulate how citizens travel and what is said.
7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the state; the bringing into cultivation of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan
On 9 June 2011 President Obama signed into law Executive Order 13575 in which the intent is to seize greater power over “food, fiber, and energy.”
8. Equal obligation of all to work and the establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture
Because of high inflation and higher taxes US society has been thrust for these past 60+ years into a dual income family at the minimum. In many instances both husband and wife have multiple jobs.
9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country by a more equable distribution of the population over the country
Follow link to Executive Order 13575 under Plank #7
10. Free education for all children in government schools and abolition of children's factory labor in its present form – combination of education with industrial production, etc
The American public school system indoctrinates children into the agenda that the federal government wants for them. Both the national department of education and the state level departments of education adhere to an outcome based education model where excellence in not rewarded and lackluster performance is not dealt with in the proper manner so kids don't get their feelings hurt. The whole standard of “equalization” is drilled into these children’s heads through the public school system so by the time they graduate they are “socialized” having no context of who they are supposed to be as American citizens.
The next “stage,” so to speak, for the total destruction of America following The Communist Manifesto is the igniting of mass civil unrest, and which one of the United States top statesmen, and National Security Advisor to President Jimmy Carter, Zbigniew Brzezinski warned is about to happen when this past week he predicted that middle class unrest caused by economic disenfranchisement would soon hit America.
The Founding Fathers of America warned their future generations that a democracy was both extreme and dangerous for a country as it would most assuredly result in the oppression of the minority by the majority.
After the destruction of Europe due to World War I, and in witnessing the descent into madness caused by the Russian Revolution which allowed the Communists to take power, the US War Department on 30 November 1928 issued to all US Soldiers a handbook reiterating this warning given to all Americans by their Founding Fathers about what could happen, and we quote exactly:
A government of the masses. Authority derived through mass meeting or any other form of "direct" expression. Results in mobocracy. Attitude toward property is communistic--negating property rights. Attitude toward law is that the will of the majority shall regulate, whether is be based upon deliberation or governed by passion, prejudice, and impulse, without restraint or regard to consequences. Results in demogogism, license, agitation, discontent, anarchy.
Authority is derived through the election by the people of public officials best fitted to represent them. Attitude toward law is the administration of justice in accord with fixed principles and established evidence, with a strict regard to consequences. A greater number of citizens and extent of territory may be brought within its compass. Avoids the dangerous extreme of either tyranny or mobocracy. Results in statesmanship, liberty, reason, justice, contentment, and progress. Is the "standard form" of government throughout the world. A republic is a form of government under a constitution which provides for the election of:
(1) an executive and (2) a legislative body, who working together in a representative capacity, have all the power of appointment, all power of legislation, all power to raise revenue and appropriate expenditures, and are required to create (3) a judiciary to pass upon the justice and legality of their government acts and to recognize (4) certain inherent individual rights.
Take away any one or more of those four elements and you are drifting into autocracy. Add one or more to those four elements and you are drifting into democracy.
Outside Independence Hall in when the Constitutional Convention of 1787 ended, Mrs. Powel of Philadelphia asked of the Great American Founding Father Benjamin Franklin, “Well, Doctor, what have we got a republic or a monarchy?” With no hesitation whatsoever, Franklin responded, “A republic, if you can keep it.”
Today that exact question is being asked of all Americans “can they keep it?” On their answer hangs the balance of all Western civilization, let’s all hope they get it right.
