It's a Depression:
How Wall Street Bankers and
Oil Magnates are Destroying America
By Servando Gonzalez
Trying to explain to the average American the true causes
of the current economic crisis is like trying to explain to a
turkey the reason why the nice guy who has been feeding and taking
care of him for a whole year, the day before Thanksgiving is
coming with a big knife to cut his throat off.
Anyway, I'll give it a try.
But, in order to understand my explanation, first you need to
learn a fact that has been carefully hidden by the mainstream
media: the present crisis is not the product of blind economic
forces or chance, but the result of the implementation of the
final steps of a plan to destroy this country and its people.
The ultimate goal of this artificially created crisis is to bring
us -- and eventually the whole industrialized world -- to pre-industrial
levels of consumption under a totalitarian comuno-fascist world
government the conspirators euphemistically call the "New
In the first place, this crisis has nothing to do with oil.
Contrary to what the fearmongers want us to believe, oil is
not scarce. Oil is not even the product of ancient animal life,
but a secretion of the earth, which produces it like flowers
produce honey. Nor is its price subject to the laws of supply
and demand, because it is controlled by a handful of international
monopolies working as a cartel that has full control over its
price and always has been using it as a weapon
of economic aggression and political control. Actually, the latest
astronomical increase in oil prices show the anomaly of a business
that profits more the less of its product it puts on the market.
Proof of it is that, breaking it own record, Exxon Mobil Corp.
reported a profit
of $45.2 billion for 2008. The short respite we had a few months
ago when oil prices suddenly plummeted, which not by chance began
after Russia's skirmish with Georgia, is the most recent example
of oil prices used as a weapon to bend the Russians down on their
Contrary to what "progressive" liberals and the
left want us to believe, the war in Iraq, the present war in
Afghanistan, and the war they are planning on Iran, are not wars
for oil. Actually, they are wars for no oil.
As matter of fact, the main problem of the international oil
cartel since the beginning of the past century has not been finding
new sources of oil to exploit, but finding ways to avoid exploiting
the ever increasing reserves popping out all around the world
like mushrooms popping up after a summer's rain. In order to
maintain their monopoly on oil as main source of energy, Big
Oil and its Wall Street partners have been doing everything they
can to block the discovery of new oil deposits, as well as avoiding
exploiting the ones already discovered. They also fiercely oppose
extracting oil from the ocean floor and building new refineries.
For the same reasons, they are fiercely against the use of
other sources of energy which may threaten their monopoly, like
coal, nuclear, fusion, etc. If this list of things the conspirators
don't want closely matches the ones the "progressive"
left is fighting to the teeth, it is because the American left
is a hoax. The American left is a mirage, created by the most
reactionary right, and bankrolled through their non-profit foundations,
who use it as a controlled pseudo-opposition to protect their
Further proof of this is that the "progressive"
left, always so eager to stand against air pollution -- a pretext
to curtailing oil use, which benefits Big Oil --, never mentions
electric, electronic, magnetic and chemtrail pollution, which
are as damaging to humans as air pollution. Why? Because eliminating
these types of pollution do not benefit Big Oil's interests.
Typical of this hypocritical defense of the environment by
"progressives" is Helen Caldicott. While she is one
of the strongest critics of nuclear power, se never criticized
her friend Fidel Castro for building a nuclear power plant in
This struggle of the oil cartels to eliminate the competition
explains why, on March, 1917, banker Jacob Schiff gave Leon Trotsky
$20 million in gold and sent him in a ship from New York to Russia
to start a "revolution." In October of the same year
the Rothchilds sent their secret agent Vladimir Lenin, who was
in exile in Switzerland, in a sealed train to Russia with over
$5 million in gold to join Trotsky in the "revolution."
The real cause for this invasion of "communists"
with their pockets full of capitalist gold was that Russia, with
its vast oil reserves in the Caucasus, had become a threat to
the oil monopolists -- the true communists. Don't forget that
the guy who said, "competition is a sin" was not Karl
Marx, Vladimir Lenin or Comrade Mao, but John D. Rockefeller,
the man who stands as the very symbol of free market capitalism.
(Actually, there is even the possibility that communism was not
the creation of Karl Marx, but of Clinton
Roosevelt, but that's a long story I will deal with in another
The conspirators' plan worked to perfection: thank to the
oil magnates and their Wall Street friends, Russia metamorphosed
into the Soviet Union, and the country was put in the freezer
for sixty long years. Not only Russia stopped being a competitor
in the oil business, but also the Ukraine, who was considered
one of the world's breadbaskets, was rapidly changed into a land
of hunger and famine.
Secondly, this crisis is the manifestation of something much
more sinister. It is a direct consequence of the fact that America
is a country betrayed by its ruling class.
America: A Country Betrayed by its Ruling Class
People who honestly see the present situation as an economic
crisis we can solve by taking the right economic measures remind
me of the guy who was trying to catch a black cat in a dark room
. . . but the cat was not even there. And I added the adjective
"honestly," because most of our leaders -- perhaps
with the exception of the most stupid ones -- are fully aware
that this is not an economic crisis at all.
America's ruling class stopped many years ago to see themselves
as Americans but as globalists. They don't feel anymore linked
emotionally to this country or its people. They don't give a
rat ass about its laws and its Constitution. They hate this country
and its people. The fact that most Americans have accepted the
present state of things without rebelling has lowered us even
more before their eyes. Currently they see us as sheep on their
way to the slaughterhouse.
Since the end of the XIX century, the goal of the international
monopolists and bankers was just robbing us blind to get richer.
To this effect they controlled and manipulated the world's energetic
resources and food supplies, as well as artificially created
continuous wars and revolutions to benefit their partners in
the military-industrial-banking complex.
But there was a point, probably around the mid 1950's, when
they realized that they had all the money they needed, and changed
the focus of their interests. From than moment it was not greed
the motive that became the main guide of their actions, but something
It was then when they reached the conclusion that the world
was overpopulated and that us, that is, you and me, were not
only useless eaters but also consume too much of the earth's
natural resources which, by birthright, belong to them -- or
so they believe.
That was the time when they began seen themselves as globalists,
not linked anymore economically or emotionally to any nation.
Then they realized that the only way to carry out their secret
plans was by having total control of the planet. That is how
the New World Order was born.
In honor to truth, the New World Order is an old idea, and
the conspirators have been toying with it for long years. Proof
of it is that the eugenics movement, inextricably linked to the
Rockefellers and the Nazis (but, as Mark Twain once said, I am
being redundant), began
in the U.S. in the 1930's. But it was not after the end of
WWII when they realized that the time was ripe for global control,
and began lying out the foundations of their New World Order.
Initially, the conspirators began putting their plans into
action by waging a war of attrition, economically and militarily,
against the peoples of the underdeveloped world, mainly Africa,
Asia and Latin America. In the meantime, they were waging psychological
warfare against the American people -- mostly carried out by
the public schools and the mainstream media. But in the last
decades they extended this undeclared war to the American economy.
Their main tools are what they call "globalization"
and "free trade."
Their reason for this hatred they feel for us is because Americans,
with their long tradition of freedom, individuality and nationalism,
unknowingly have become the main obstacle to their plans. Consequently,
an important measure they had to take before fully implementing
the NWO was getting rid of the troublesome Americans and their
country of freedom and liberty. Even more, they resented our
high standard of living.
We Americans Consume Too Much
If one is to believe Canadian millionaire Maurice Strong,
a senior secret agent and mouthpiece for the Rockefellers and
the international bankers, our lifestyle -- not theirs, but ours,
that is your lifestyle and mine -- is unsustainable. According
to Strong, we Americans consume too much.
There are several telltale signs characterizing the New World
Order. An important economic feature of it is sustainable development,
a nebulous term created by the NWO conspirators to hide their
true intentions. Though it is almost impossible to find a clear
definition of what sustainable development is, at least we have
one of what it is not. It came from the horse's mouth, Maurice
In a Report
he wrote on August 1991, for the UN Conference on Environment
and Development, Strong gave a definition
of what, according to his masters' view, is not sustainable:
It is clear that current life styles and consumption patterns
of the affluent middle class involving high meat intake, consumption
of large amounts of frozen and convenience foods, use of fossil
foods, appliances, home and work place air conditioning, suburban
housing, are not sustainable . . . A shift is necessary toward
life-styles less geared to environmental damaging consumption
Adopting the ideology of their benefactors in the most reactionary
right, "progressive" liberals and the left have repeated
over and over that Americans, which comprise only the 5 percent
of the population of the planet, consume more than 60 percent
of its natural resources. Though there is perhaps some truth
in that statistic, it fails to mention an important fact: the
0.01 percent of this 5 percent -- that is a minuscule group of
like the Rockefellers, Ted Turner, Bill Gates, and the like --
consume more than half of the 60 percent Americans as a whole
consume. Apparently it doesn't matter to Strong and his masters
that his NWO masters, not you and me, are the ones living in
multimillion-dollar mansions, riding limousines, flying big private
planes and helicopters and sailing huge luxury yachts.
Before continuing with this analysis let me make it clear
that I agree to some extent that planet earth is polluted and
that we, the inhabitants of this planet, not only consume, but
also destroy, a large part of its natural resources. So, it is
not that I don't agree with the message. What I don't believe
is in the honesty of the messengers, nor in the truth of their
fearmongering campaigns, much less in their proposed solutions
to the problem.
So, to convince us, that is, you and me, not the hyperconsuming
billionaires, that we are consuming too much -- in great part
because the media and the public schools they control has turned
us into avid consumers --, they created out of the blue the human-caused
"global warming" theory, a sort of second hand smoking
on steroids -- and put one of their secret agents to play the
role of the Judas sheep to peacefully guide the rest of the sheep
to the slaughterhouse. Soon after, the war profiteering Swedish
dynamite makers gave him the Nobel Prize to enhance his credibility
in the eyes of the fools.
It does not matter that many scientists have found that the
evidence does not support their "theory". It does not
matter that the data seems to indicate that the whole planet
is actually on a cooling trend. It does not matter that this
winter most likely is going to break low temperature records
-- to the point that they have been forced to change their tune
from "global warming" to "climate change".
No. If you control the press and the system of public education,
and have enough money distributed through your Foundations to
buy unscrupulous scientists, you can prove anything -- even that
snow is black.
The idea is not new. In his 1951 book The Impact of Science
on Society, Bertrand Russell, one of the original Fabians,
and a source of inspiration for the NWO conspirators, wrote:
Physiology and psychology afford fields for scientific technique
which still await development. Two great men, Pavlov and Freud,
have laid the foundation. I do not accept the view that they
are in any essential conflict, but what structure will be built
on their foundations is still in doubt. I think the subject which
will be of most importance politically is mass psychology. .
. . Its importance has been enormously increased by the growth
of modern methods of propaganda. Of these the most influential
is what is called "education." Religion plays a part,
though a diminishing one; the press, the cinema, and the radio
play an increasing part. . . . It may be hoped that in time anybody
will be able to persuade anybody of anything if he can catch
the patient young and is provided by the State with money and
The subject will make great strides when it is taken up by
scientists under a scientific dictatorship. . . . The social
psychologists of the future will have a number of classes of
school children on whom they will try different methods of producing
an unshakable conviction that snow is black. Various results
will soon be arrived at. First, that the influence of home is
obstructive. Second, that not much can be done unless indoctrination
begins before the age of ten. Third, that verses set to music
and repeatedly intoned are very effective. Fourth, that the opinion
that snow is white must be held to show a morbid taste for eccentricity.
But I anticipate. It is for future scientists to make these maxims
precise and discover exactly how much it costs per head to make
children believe that snow is black, and how much less it would
cost to make them believe it is dark gray.
Russell ends his reactionary diatribe with a warning:
Although this science will be diligently studied, it will
be rigidly confined to the governing class. The populace will
not be allowed to know how its convictions were generated. When
the technique has been perfected, every government that has been
in charge of education for a generation will be able to control
its subjects securely without the need of armies or policemen.
It is evident that the conspirators have followed the mad
philosopher's advice to the letter. Currently most people in
America strongly believe, if not that snow is dark gray, that
the "conservatives" are waging a war against terrorism
and the "progressives" another war against global warming.
These two wars must be fought at all costs-- including the cost
of losing our liberties, freedom and standard of living.
The conspirators were extremely happy with the results. Now
the time was ripe for another turn of the screw, the lost of
our standard of living as the first step to turn us into medieval
serfs. I seems, however, that the process of destroying America
as we knew it was not fast enough to fulfill their goal in time
-- Capitalism has proved to be a hard-to-kill economic system.
So, they pulled the plug; that is, the economy's plug.
By the end of last year the United States economy had shrunk
at a staggering 6.2 percent pace and lost 7 trillion of its worth.
(Yes, Trillion, with a T). At the time I began writing this article
we had a 7.6 percent unemployment rate (by the time you read
it I am sure it will be much higher), businesses are going bankrupt
and closing their doors at a vertiginous rate, and it seems that
the current economic crisis will continue to grow like a snowball
falling down the side of a steep hill until it becomes a depression
that, for lack of a better name, will be recorded in history
books as The Mother of All Depressions.
Thirdly, the cause of this crisis has nothing to do with the
The True Reason for This Crisis
Most people have been brainwashed by the conspirators'-controlled
mainstream media to see the cause of this economic crisis as
the result of the burst of the housing bubble. According to the
professional disinfomers, the house prices plummeted, people
lost most of their equity, there is a loss of confidence in the
market, and people are not buying enough. That is exactly what
tax cheat and Council on Foreign Relations agent Timothy Geithner
wants us to believe: "Our economy's troubles began with
housing and the overstretched finances of millions of homeowners."
("Housing plan's aim: Help people help themselves,"
USATODAY, Feb 19, 2009, p. 9A.)
Of course, that is just the conspirators' fairy tale -- advanced
by both the Bush and the Obama administrations (sorry if I am
being redundant again) -- and, to solve the problem, they have
resorted to give money for free, in the form of so-called "stimulus
packages" to incite people to buy more. But most people
are not buying -- neither the goods, nor the government's theory
--, and, though they are not yet voting with their feet, they
are currently voting with their closed wallets.
Neither are they buying any stocks. Why? Because they don't
trust Wall Street anymore -- you cannot fool all the people all
the time. The present crisis has shown that the stock exchange
is nothing but a gigantic Ponzi
scheme operated by the Wall Street Mafia which uses insider
trading and other tricks to fleece the sheep.
The truth is that the implosion of the housing bubble is not
the cause of the problem, just the event that triggered it. The
housing bubble was an economic time bomb designed at the Harold
Pratt House and planted in the foundations of the American economy
by CFR agents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush to create an economic
9/11 that will terrorize even more the American people.
This time bomb created by the CFR's economic terrorists began
ticking when CFR agent Bill Clinton ordered HUD to set quotas
for Fannie and Freddie to buy huge portions of Community Reinvestment
Act loans and other low-income mortgages made to borrowers with
poor credit. This was the "affordable housing" policy
that created the subprime market. CFR agent George W. Bush continued
the policy launched by the Clinton administration.
But, as I mentioned above, the real cause of this crisis is
not the implosion of the housing bubble, but the reduction of
workers' real income: Americans are not buying because they don't
have money, and they don't have money because they have become
dirty poor in the blink of an eye.
Actually they became dirty poor many years ago. It was not
until very recently, however, that they were forced to wake up
from their media-induced dream and confront the harsh reality.
The present economic crisis has deep roots that began in the
mid 1970s, when, despite the extraordinary economic growth, stagnant
and declining wages made medium income static. The next decade
workers realized that the traditional family, with just one person
bringing the bacon home -- usually the man -- was not enough
to maintain what Americans considered an adequate standard of
Then, pushed by economic necessity and fanned by the women's
liberation movement (another psychological warfare operation
against the American people planned and bankrolled by the conspirators
and put in action by their secret agents in the Left), more and
more women entered the workforce, creating the two-income family.
A direct result of this, however, was that, because the available
workforce had almost doubled in size, the competition for the
same amount of jobs doubled and the employers found an easy justification
to pay lower salaries for the same jobs.
Another result was that the absent parents lost control over
their children's education, and were forced to feed them to that
ugly monster called "public schools", where they were
systematically brainwashed, drugged, and indoctrinated in pseudo-scientific
beliefs, criminality, licentiousness and sexual promiscuity.
That way the conspirators killed two important birds with a single
stone: destroyed the traditional family and gained control over
their children's minds and bodies. (The conspirators know from
the experience of their Nazi friends that the destruction of
the traditional family and early control over its children is
a key element in the implementation of a totalitarian regime
like the NWO).
Anyway, the economic respite was not for long. Just a few
years later, two-income families realized that they were not
making enough money to maintain their standard of living. To
top it off, both federal and state taxes had increased dramatically,
to the point that they were stealing almost a third of the salary
of the average worker. So, they momentarily solved the problem
by working longer hours. By the 1990s, the average American worker
was working more hours a week than their European counterparts.
Even more than the Japanese.
Very soon after, despite two breadwinners working longer hours,
American families realized that they were not making enough money.
What to do? They began supplementing their income with credit
money. Some of it came from the equity gained in the value of
their homes thanks to the housing bubble, fanned by easy credit
pushed by the two evil sisters Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The
rest of the money came through the easy available credit cards.
But all of this measures -- two jobs, longer hours and credit
money did not stop the decrease of real income and the
thirdworldization of America. Most workers were living paycheck
to paycheck, trying to make ends meet, without saving a single
Like in third world countries, after getting a university
degree, young Americans had to move back to their parents' home
because they could not find a decent job. (The phenomenon was
so common that somebody even coined a term for them: "boomerangs".)
The only way many young couples were able to afford the down
payment for their new house was by getting a loan from their
parents. Young employed workers were forced to share a house
or apartment with other roommates in order to pay the skyrocketing
As a last resort, many Americans began buying most of their
goods at big discount stores like COSCO, Wall Mart, K Mart, and
the like. Apparently it never crossed their minds that every
time they were buying a cheap, low quality product "Made
in China" to save a few bucks, they were hammering another
nail in America's economy.
Eventually the credit bubble could not expand anymore and
the CFR conspirators decided it was time to end the ruse. Then,
they pushed the button which set the economic bomb off. Apparently
nobody saw the danger signals when the conspirators appointed
Ben Bernanke, a scholar on the Great Depression, to chair the
Federal Reserve Bank.
Globalization and Free Trade
As I mentioned above, the real cause of this crisis is the
lowering of workers' income, as a direct result of the so-called
"globalization" and "free trade." These policies
opened the way for international corporations to cut high paid
jobs in the U.S. and send them abroad transmogrified into low
paid jobs (many Mexican workers in the maquiladoras are paid
five dollars . . . a day!). As expected, this has not benefited
Americans workers in any way -- lower production costs were not
reflected on the price of the goods. The ones who have profited
enormously with the quasi-slave work of foreign workers are the
CEOs and stockholders of the corporations.
Currently, American workers cannot afford to buy the products
they make, or used to make, because they don't earn enough money
to buy them. But Mr. Obama's economic measures, allegedly taken
to stop the crisis, have been rightly compared to extinguishing
a fire by pouring gasoline to it.
A sure way to begin stopping this crisis would be to cancel
all globalization and "free trade" agreements like
CAFTA, NAFTA, etc., and bring the jobs back to America. But this
is something that Mr. Obama's Wall Street masters at the Council
on Foreign Relations will never allow him to do. Proof of it
is that, when a compromise in the Senate had been negotiated
on the simple base that Obama's $875 billion dollar Economic
Stimulus Plan included a "Buy American" provision,
Mr. Obama backpedaled. Quietly, the "Buy American"
provision was watered down until it practically disappeared.
Despite Mr. Obama's claims on the contrary, our government
will not take any measure to stop this crisis because it is under
the control of the conspirators who have created the crisis to
advance their secret agenda. With a few exceptions, the members
of the three branches of our government are either traitors willingly
working for the Council on Foreign Relations conspirators to
engross their egos and their fortunes, or scared mice (don't
forget the anthrax scare) trying to survive the sinking of the
If you still don't know what the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)
is, and what they do in the shadows, don't feel bad, because you
are not alone. Most Americans ignore that this treacherous organization
even exists, because, with the complicity of the mainstream press,
they have become almost invisible to the public's eye. But I suggest
you to watch my documentary "Treason in America: The Council
on Foreign Relations." I assure you that, after watching
it, you will find answers to many things currently going on in
America that defy a logical explanation.
