The Adversary Facing The
Illegal Police Coordination From The
"Federal" Level Serves A Purpose
NewsFocus Op/Ed, by Tim Watts - 112811
The occupy protests, like their Arab spring counterparts, are a
revolt by the people against an oppressive system. While the genesis of the
American movement is very much in question, no one doubts the sincerity or the
intentions of the brave citizens who are participating in it, however, some have
questioned the message of the movement.
What does the movement want?
If you can't figure this out by now, then you watch too much TV
news. I mean that, quite literally.
The mainstream corporate media has waged a disinformation campaign
against the protests right from the start, trying to portray the group as thugs,
or just indolent sponges that expect more free handouts from the system. That
characterization is patently disingenuous at best, if not outright character
assassination at the worst.
The corporate media benefits from the status quo of a US system
that has undeniably turned fascist, a plutocracy of oligarchic rule, so it is in their best interest to wage a
negative PR campaign against a peaceful movement that is about nothing more than
reforming this corrupt system.
This isn't about freeloaders who want more free handouts from the
system. This is about middle class American citizens who want to stop the take
away from a lifestyle that they worked so hard to accomplish. If anything, they
are the ones out to stop the freeloaders, the Wall Street institutions, bankers,
and corporate welfare recipients who have bilked our country for
Federal Reserve bailouts.
The occupy movement is about people who are tired of seeing the
rich rewarded for tanking our economy, while the middle and lower class are made
to pay for it through stolen pensions and 401K's. They are angry about losing
their homes, while the richest swoop in like vultures and buy them up for mere
pennies on the dollar. They are angry about a lack of jobs and the benefits that
labor worked so hard to attain for them.
Most in the movement are surprisingly savvy about the root evil
behind the economic collapse of this country,
the corrupt Federal Reserve
system. Some venture so far as to postulate that this economic demise is not an
accident at all, but a meticulously
manufactured collapse of sinister intent.
Suspiciously enough, just like the 1929 collapse, the rich are
getting richer during a horrendous economic climate. The filthy rich doubled
their wealth in just six years after the Bush tax cuts, and now they've made
even more money since the 2008 collapse. The S&P has reported that the top 500
companies have increased their holdings by 60% since 2008! All of this during
one of the worst economic collapses in US history.
How is it that the ultra-rich are insulated from this disaster,
aside from taxpayers bailing them out? The only logical conclusion is that the
game is rigged in their favor, against the rest of us. They're not about to give
up this system easily.
This doesn't sound like an economic accident to many. It's an
With the Federal reserve pulling the strings in Washington, it's
no surprise that the federal government is cracking down hard on a movement that
is trying to unseat the Fed from its corrupt stranglehold over our government.
For some to not understand where the buck actually stops in this
country is highly naive, if not outright pure ignorance. It stops at the desk of
the Federal Reserve, the true power in this country.
The Real Power In America
As the old saying goes, once power is gained it
is hard to take it away. Unseating the Fed will be an epic
struggle to say the least. To insinuate that Congress or the
White House is directing the DHS crackdown over the protest is
to dismiss the power of the Federal Reserve cartel.
Many presidents have
commented on the greater power that exists in this country since
the formation of the Federal Reserve.
They know that there is a power somewhere, so organized, so
subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive,
that they had better not speak above their breath when they
speak in condemnation of it. -Woodrow Wilson
President Calvin Coolidge once remarked that
despite being the most powerful man in the world,
I am only in the clutch of forces that
are greater than I am.
real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial
element in the large centers has owned the government of the
U.S. since the days of Andrew Jackson.
-President Franklin D. Roosevelt [letter dated November 21,
And of all
the people to comment on power and authority, read what Richard
Nixon had to say about this secret, hidden power:
The nation's immediate problem is that while the common man
fights America's wars, the intellectual elite sets its agenda.
Today, whether the West lives or dies is in the hands of its new
power elite: those who set the terms of public debate, who
manipulate the symbols, who decide whether nations or leaders
will be depicted on 100 million television sets as 'good' or
'bad.' This power elite sets the limits of the possible for
Presidents and Congress. It molds the impressions that move the
nation, or that mire it.
-President Richard Nixon, from "The
Even Ronald Reagan was said to have remarked in
his second term that he suspected that he was not in control
of the nation, that there was indeed a greater power of
influence that prevailed over the country.
And then there are these
comments from notable US figures...
This [Federal Reserve] act
establishes the most gigantic trust on earth... When the
President signs this act the invisible government by the money

States. -Congressman Charles A. Lindbergh, Sr.,

The financial system has been turned over
to the Federal Reserve Board. That Board administers the finance
system by authority of a purely profiteering group. The system

greatest possible profits from the use of other people's money.

of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system,

Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter
Outwardly we have a Constitutional government. We have operating

representing another form of government, a bureaucratic elite
which believes our Constitution is outmoded.
-Senator William Jenner (February 23, 1954)
Deny the existence of such a
power base if you like, but far greater men seem to have
known better for years now.
The ruling power of the
United States doesn't come from Pennsylvania Avenue, it comes
from the Federal Reserve and Wall Street.
The Federal Reserve Fights Back
A sudden mid-November lashing out by law enforcement at movements
across the country has brought outrage to Americans.
From New York, to St. Louis, Denver, Salt Lake City, Oakland, and Seattle, all
across the nation, there was a very coordinated effort to crackdown on the
movement, and as suspected, it came from the Federal level.
The question is, which level truly directed this?
There are two "federal" entities involved here, the US Federal government and
the Federal Reserve, the latter of which does not belong to the previous.
I dare to venture that if more people truly
understood about this 99 year coup d'etat, the streets would be overflowing
with anger. We would have riots instead of protests.
Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has helped coordinate the police attacks
on the protesters. This is not a bunch of mayors on a conference call taking
matters into their own hands. Do you really think that 18 mayors all came up
with the same idea, to call up the American Gestapo, Homeland Security?
Oakland Mayor Jean Quan spilled the proverbial beans when she
admitted to the BBC that she had engaged in
an 18 city conference call with other mayors. Journalist Rick Ellis of the
Minneapolis edition of Examiner.com, takes the story a step further with an
admission from an unnamed Justice official who told him the following:
Local police agencies had received tactical and planning advice.
They were advised to seek a legal reason to evict residents of
tent cities, focusing on zoning laws and existing curfew rules.
Agencies were also advised to demonstrate a massive show of
police force, including large numbers in riot gear. In particular, the FBI
reportedly advised on press relations, going so far as to suggest that any
moves to evict protesters be coordinated at a time when the press was least
likely to be present.
Naturally the FBI was reluctant to respond to requests for an
official response. Just as incriminating, at least 14 local police agencies all
declined to respond to questions on the issue as well.
Make no mistake about it folks, this is a concerted effort that
came from the top-down, not the bottom-up, but many miss what the top
truly is. Some believe it is Congress and the President, but as many politicians
have known for years, (see above) there is a darker power at work here, the
central banking cartel that runs this world.
Money is power. It's as simple as that. It's been that way for
Misrepresenting The Movement
The pathetic corporate media shills that pose as news journalists
in the US are doing their best to misrepresent the Occupy movement and the
protestors. Rather than truthfully reporting on the substantive issues this
movement is seeking to call attention to, they willfully neglect their duty and
look in other directions, reporting on the lesser complaints, rather than
exposing the real problem behind the country's ills, the Federal Reserve cabal.
The problem doesn't just stop with the corporate news sleaze, but
also trickles out, to a limited extent, in the reporting of non-mainstream
authors as well. Most shockingly for me, in a recent article from an icon of
integrity and a person whom I truly revere.
One of America's greatest heroines, and someone
truly admired and respected by this writer, is author Naomi Wolf.
She, along with Naomi Klein, are the one-two punch of feminine
intellect and activism in this country. Wolf recently penned an
article in the Guardian UK, "The
Shocking Truth About the Crackdown on Occupy." It is a very
good article which also cites the aforementioned Rick Ellis
piece on the DHS collusion with municipal law enforcement, but
surprisingly Wolf cuts her analysis short, laying the blame for
the federal intervention solely at the feet of Congress and the
I respectfully and vehemently, disagree with
her myopic assumption and assessment.
While our corrupt politicians and leaders
indeed have financial sins to hide, assaulting the occupy
protestors is not going to hide their misdoings.
Wolf also misses the true villain identified
by this movement. According to her limited blind responses from
her readership, she identifies Wall Street, but glaringly
mentions nothing about the Federal Reserve. This absolutely
floored me because Wolf is quite educated and extremely bright.
It doesn't take a solicited email campaign to figure out what
the problem in America is, the Federal Reserve cartel.
An email solicitation is a very feeble attempt
at genuine research, for it is open to the danger of tampering.
While Wolf did gather some worthwhile responses, her readership
is obviously limited to the financially astute, given the fact
that one of her top email responses was to reinstate Glass-Steagal. As
a former researcher, I can guarantee you that 75% of Americans
have no concept of Glass-Steagal. The number may very well be
higher that that.
Please don't get me wrong in my critique of
Wolf or her article, because this pains me to write a veiled
admonishment of one of my truly favorite activists in this
country. I have published much from Ms. Wolf and will continue
to do so every chance that I get, however, unless you've been
asleep under a rock for the last ten years, it doesn't take a
limited email response to point the finger at the true enemy of
our lost republic. It is my fervent hope that Wolf will address
the Federal Reserve in upcoming articles.
Where Is The Harm?
As Wolf astutely points out, none
of this police brutality was ever extended to the Tea Party
protests. One could argue that they weren't camping out in
public spaces. Fair enough, but Wolf also rightfully points out
those camping out on New York sidewalks in front of NBC studios waiting to
tickets for Saturday Night Live. Certainly no one is assaulting
them. You can also carry this
rightful train of logic out even further. What about those who
camp out for concert tickets and sports events? Why doesn't the
NYPD arrest these public campers? Wolf's point is very well
What becomes clear upon
reflection is that the Occupy protestors are wrongfully being
singled out and targeted for attack. That much is quite clear.
If it wasn't for a tainted
Federal court system, one could assume that these
protestors have a solid legal case for assault and battery and
wrongful arrest, but since the dawn of the new millennium and the
reign of the treasonous Bush-Cheney regime, a heinous
administration whose evil is now furthered by the Obama-Biden CFR
team, getting your day in court is no longer viable, unless
you're a corporation, or extremely wealthy.
For the record, for all of you Constitutional scholars out there,
the OWS protestors are merely exercising their
right to assembly. The Constitution
expressly grants "we the people" the lawful right to
peacefully assemble whenever we damn well feel like it, and to petition our Government of the people, by the
people and for the people for a redress of grievances, as explicitly stated
To spin an old phrase... "Permits? We don't need
no stinkin' permits!"
Our permit to peacefully assemble is our
Constitution and our inalienable
Bill of Rights. If someone wants to come back and argue that those rights
have been rescinded under the Patriot Act, or other treasonous executive
directives, "we the people" would be within our legal right to
say that any such law made against the people, without our express consent, THAT
is the law which is illegal.
Let it be said, we will honor no laws made in
secret against us, or without our consent.
The People Fight Back
As a matter of fact, another much heralded document
for which our country is founded and based upon is the Declaration of
Independence. Maybe we should pass that one around Congress right now so they
understand who actually has the legal right in this country. Perhaps we should
make this document, along with the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, a more
visible element in the Occupy movement?
"We the people" have the explicit right to
overthrow a government of tyranny. We have that right. The
Declaration of Independence so says, in
pretty plain language.
We hold these truths to be self-evident,
that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their
Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are
Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. --That to secure
these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving
their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That
whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these
ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it,
and to institute new Government,
laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its
powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect
their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that
Governments long established should not be
changed for light and transient causes;
and accordingly all experience hath shewn,
that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are
sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to
which they are accustomed. But when
a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the
same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute
Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off
such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future
security. —Such has been the
patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the
necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of
Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain
[George III] is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations,
all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute
Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted
to a candid world. -United
States Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776
It is ironic that we escaped King George, only to be
assaulted by President George.
Know Thine Enemy
This reporter has openly
questioned the impetus for the numerous uprisings around the world, because so
far, not one of these protests has resulted in anything good for the people, not
for Tunisia, Egypt, Wisconsin, not for anyone, except for those who hold the power.
In Egypt, they entered into military rule. It would seem that those who hold the power
have kept the upper hand.
With that said, let me say this. I believe in the Occupy
protests. No matter who started this movement, we can occupy it to achieve
our objectives, but you have to understand who is behind the opposition and what
the end to their means truly is. The first precept in any conflict or battle is
to know your enemy.
The enemy of our republic is the Federal Reserve system. Every
American needs to grasp and understand that fact. If they are uneducated about
the 1910 treason at Jekyll Island, or the 1913 takeover of our
currency system by the Federal Reserve, then they need to bone up on their facts
pretty damn quick, or follow those of us who know better.
Consider these quotes from past American statesman regarding the
We have, in this country, one of the
most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to
the Federal Reserve Board. This evil institution has
impoverished the people of the United States and has practically
bankrupted our government. It has done this through the corrupt
practices of the moneyed vultures who control it.
-Congressman Louis T. McFadden in 1932 (Rep. Pa)
The Federal Reserve banks are one of the
most corrupt institutions the world has ever seen. There is not
a man within the sound of my voice who does not know that this
nation is run by the International bankers.
-Congressman Louis T. McFadden
Some people think the Federal Reserve
Banks are the United States government's institutions. They are
not government institutions. They are private credit monopolies
which prey upon the people of the United States for the benefit
of themselves and their foreign swindlers. -Congressman
Louis T. McFadden, Chairman of the Committee on Banking and
Currency, June 10, 1932
Words like this from McFadden against the
Federal Reserve so angered the bankers that they murdered him
for speaking out.
President John F. Kennedy also knew of the
evils of the Federal Reserve. He tried to counter their phony
money system by signing executive order 11110 which gave the US
treasury the right to print its own currency backed by silver.
This didn't sit well with the banking cartel, so they had him
assassinated, much the same as they did Lincoln for his issuance
of interest free greenbacks during the Civil War.
Our American history books fail to tell the
true story of political assassination over the Federal Reserve
system. Most would be stunned to know the real truth about
Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley, Franklin Roosevelt and Kennedy. And
yes, many suspect that FDR did not succumb to polio, but was
indeed poisoned like Congressman McFadden.
All in all, this criminal cartel has done away
with no less than four US Presidents, possibly five if you include FDR. The
dots are easy to connect if you just do your homework and look
at history with an adjusted perspective, with the knowledge of
the Rothschild's long standing and well documented fight to
re-establish a central bank in the United States.
If you're still not sure about the criminal leeches from the
Federal Reserve, consider these words from the American
President who was beguiled into allowing the cartel to take hold
of our nation:
I am a
most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial
nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is
concentrated in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst
ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the
world--no longer a government of free opinion, no longer a government by
conviction and vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress
of small groups of dominant men.
-President Woodrow Wilson
add to all of this, Admiral Chester Ward, a former CFR
member once said in 1975,
"They control or own major newspapers, magazines, radio and
television networks," and "the most powerful companies in the
book publishing business."
Remember the old Winston
Churchill quote about "the victor always writes the history?"
Ward also said,
"The most powerful cliques
in these elitist groups have one objective in common: they want
to bring about the surrender of the sovereignty and national
independence of the United States."
people have been deceived about the true nature of the Federal
Reserve. It is a cartel of corrupt bankers who stole our
national sovereignty for their own personal prosperity.
If you still
don't get the picture, then take the message right from the
horse's mouth, from former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan
Greenspan who arrogantly proclaimed:
first of all, the Federal Reserve is an independent agency, and that means
basically that there is no other agency of government which can overrule actions
that we take. So long as that is in place and there is no evidence that the
administration or the Congress or anybody else is requesting that we do things
other than what we think is the appropriate thing, then, what the relationships
are don’t frankly matter.
–Alan Greenspan, Federal Reserve Chairman
The Federal Reserve Agenda
What is the goal of these criminal banksters? Is it money? Not
any more. Once you've fattened yourself at the feeding trough long enough there are other
matters of interest, power. All insecure men seek what they don't
The Federal Reserve is but a small piece of the larger Rothschild
global empire and their central banking institutions. What they want, and have
been working patiently at for years, is to dissolve national status and bring
the entire planet under a one-world rule, run solely by them. The Rockefeller
family is a principal partner in this assault against mankind. Just like a mafia
crime family, the Rockefellers run the American franchise of the Rothschild
central banks, the Federal Reserve banks.
If you have a hard time with this, then once again consider the
words right from the horse's mouth, this time from David Rockefeller:
grateful to The Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other
great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected
their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been
impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to
the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more
sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The
supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely
preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.
-David Rockefeller, Bilderberg Meeting, Baden-Baden Germany, 1991
on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the
right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World
believe we (Rockefeller family) are part of a secret cabal
working against the best interests of the United States,
characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of
conspiring with others around the world to build a more
integrated global political and economic structure—one world, if
you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud
of it. -David Rockefeller,
In 2012 the Federal Reserve will enter its 99th year of
operation, but the Rothschild dynasty has been ruling world finances for well
over 300 years. This is an extremely entrenched and long standing cabal that
won't give up their quadrillion dollar scam easily. A million man march in every
city does not bother them in the least, because they have the keys to the US
government, the Congress, our politicians, the military industrial complex, and
key law enforcement officials. They have access to weapons and advanced
technology that most have no clue of. They have more power than most can
Again, they will not back down to an Occupy protest, no matter
how large it gets. Their recourse is simply the extent to which they are willing
to sink to deal with it. They can hire agent provocateurs to create chaos
within the movement, or they can just as easily detonate a nuclear bomb and
blame it on foreign terrorists, or even an American patsy. They have options
that they are not afraid to use because they are unwilling to have their family
reputations ruined with public indictments. Rumor is one thing, but criminal
convictions are another. They will fight to the bitter end to avoid prosecution
for the human atrocities and crimes that they've committed. Be certain of this
The seeming omnipotence of the Federal Reserve cartel does not
mean the Occupy movement can do nothing. To be honest, what these banksters
do fear is that the OWS protestors might awaken other powers within the US that
do have the resources and the power to challenge them. What they do not want
is for the generals and the military to take notice and side with the American
Our only hope is for our military leaders and intelligence
officials to take notice and make a stand on our behalf. We need influential
military and intelligence leaders to come to our aid. Generals such as Wesley
Clark and David Petraeus would be huge advocates for this movement. No matter
what you believe about the CIA and the NSA, there are white hats among these
agencies. There are good people in the FBI. Not everyone is corrupt. These are
the people that this movement needs to stir to action.
The hope is that Law enforcement would also see the light and cross
police line to support their brothers and sisters. We are all Americans. United we
stand and divided we fall. We desperately need their support if we are to
win this battle.
This should be the goal of the OWS movement, to awaken our fellow
Americans into taking action. The Occupy movement needs to educate others as to
the hidden power that truly bankrupted this nation. It was not Wall
Street alone. The direction comes from the Federal Reserve board that controls
the printing presses for our currency. They set the policy and they run the
financial show. The Federal Reserve is not run by our government. To the
contrary, they are the ones who run our government.
We must also maintain the moral high ground, for that is the key
to any insurrection in winning the approval of the public. The powers that be
know this all too well so they will use any methods possible to steal this from
the movement. The Occupy protests must not resort to violence. It is imperative
to not sink to the violence already displayed by those trying to stop the
movement. Their violence makes our case all that much stronger, to end the police
state that is being imposed upon us all.
Once again, money is the true power in this world, but there is
an equal to that, and it is the power of the people. When "we the people"
become educated as to who our true enemy actually is, and we collectively say
that we've finally had enough, only then can we bring about the hope and change
we were promised in 2008.
