About The Glenn Beck Vicious Rumor Link,
In many of these responses, I see a dearth of understanding of the big picture. In the big picture, what a manipulative bozo does is irrelevant--even when he behaves contemptuously in how he talks about the President. It is the system itself that is cancer-ridden. Hence, it would be more constructive if citizens would stay focused on the big picture.
The Google documentary, "The Money Masters," makes it clear what runs our nation. Hint: it's not the President. It's a 3.5 hr. video, but the player has a slider to mark the segments viewed. Ive seen it four times in the last four years. There is so much spellbinding history in it, that with each viewing, I see new connections among many behind the scenes players. These players shape nations, charting the courses of national destinies more powerfully than any administration or office-holder--even if we can't directly see their hands at work. They do so by controlling the money supply.
As for Obama, he's smart, personable, and charismatic, and this is good for the national spirit. When it comes to power, however, he doesn't have much. For starters (as the documentary shows), there's no substantive difference between the two major parties (despite impressions to the contrary). Really, there' just one party, which I like to call the Money Party. The money party controls all Presidents--Obama included. They have done so since the Fed's inception in 1913.
One tell-tale indication of Obama's (or any President's) power is this: there are 26 security clearance levels above the clearance given the President. Question: how did the President get pushed that far down the clearance ladder? Who had enough clout to arrange for that? JFK was the last President to have the highest security clearance. As his speeches show, he intended to break the veil of secrecy which had grown up around the government. He was opposed to behind the scenes forces anathema to a democratic system. His voice was silenced, however.
The Money Masters makes it easy to figure out why some leaders die prematurely. They don't "play along." After I saw it the Money Masters, I was both shocked and disoriented. I found it necessary to re-evaluate nearly everything I thought I knew about how life works. Unfortunately for me (someone with two Master's Degrees), my professional friends were completely disinterested in what the video offered. Being Bay Area folks, they were too in love with being Democrats to listen to anything that challenged their core belief system. Thus, I was alone in my awakening.
Moreover, I was disheartened over their being close-minded to ideas bigger than any one party. Of course, had they never been been offered profound information such as the video shows, they'd have remained unwitting dupes of the system (just as I had been). After they shut their ears, however, I came to see them as willing dupes of the system. Sad, very sad.
Patrick, I admire what you've done with this site. You've earned its tremendous following. Likewise, I saw your goodwill in putting together a nursing home database, so people could avoid the kinds of obstacles you had encountered. I now hope you'll take a harder look at what America became once the Fed weasled its way into our governance. Watch The Money Masters. Or, if you like, tackle the works of Dr. Carroll Quigley (Georgetown), regarding the hidden controllers of the economy and the government. (Quigley was Bill Clinton's mentor and was lauded in Clinton's inaugural address. His credentials are impeccable.)
The more the populace can wake up to the corporate rule of this nation (via money control), the more hope I'll have that we won't be consumed by it. We still have a chance to take our democracy back from the two sold-out parties and the corporatocracy which runs them. We can still reclaim the Constitution-based governance which existed prior to 1913--or at least, that's my hope.
