“A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated (in the Federal Reserve System). The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are 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 civilized world.” ~President Woodrow Wilson
Like it or not, agree or disagree with the sentiment, but this statement by a former president of the United States speaks volumes about the state of international affairs (at the time) and, almost a century later, these words could now be looked upon, more than anything else, as a stark harbinger of things to come in the ensuing decades.
Before going any further, I would recommend that, if you haven't already done so, you first read my previous article, 'The Global Economy, Especially that of the United States, Can Never Recover From The Current Financial Crisis and Here's Precisely Why', because it might serve as a foundation and help you understand this article better. Having said that, it's not absolutely necessary to read it first in order to grasp what's conveyed herein.
I also just want to say that this article is not meant to bolster the notorious 'Freeman' and 'Strawman' arguments that, once injected into the conversation, only detract from the value of any other pertinent information presented. I have went to great lengths in this article to stay away from arguments that involve or support 'conspiracies' (other than stating that the world's elite calls the shots and makes the rules).
In my previous article, I described how the world's economy has functioned, at large, for several centuries and, more starkly, how the U.S. economy has negatively changed since the inception and institution of the Federal Reserve Bank. This article will go one step further and detail the nation's economic bankruptcy, that was declared de facto on March 9, 1933, and what steps were taken after the fact to pull the nation back from the brink of default. Further in consideration of the broader picture, I will touch on the differences between Maritime Admiralty Law and Civil Law and describe how this element of the conversation relates to the nation's economy post-1933.
People are used as collateral on the international stage because the U.S. is bankrupt having formally declared bankruptcy on March 9, 1933. Actually, history won't substantiate a declaration of bankruptcy by the United States, but if you look at everything that was happening in the day a very lucid picture quickly forms. Nations don't technically declare bankruptcy but that's exactly what happens, for all intents and purposes, when a country defaults on its international loans. We've gotten very close to this reality several times in recent years, too. Yes, this is a very bold assertion and, to be absolutely certain, it's quite difficult to find supporting evidence because what happened at that time wasn't portrayed as a typical bankruptcy. It's important to remember that, by the early part of the last century, the United States had already started on the path of being a world-class power, both militarily and economically. It's not surprising at all that the situation was re-branded as a reset of the financial industry and national economy.
Popular history shows that the nation did endure major changes that year, industries were failing especially the banks, and one hundred newly-elected Democrats were swept into office. The general consensus was that they would take radical steps to address banking failures and other economic malaise. Publicly, the government passed The Emergency Banking Act of 1933 and, one year later, the longer term 1933 Banking Act was also passed. It was also during this tumultuous flurry of new 'emergency' legislation that the nation enacted and put into motion the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. This element of the topic at hand is one that some people will have to research further in order to understand or believe that the country's economy was on the verge of collapse, but no matter how you see it or what you believe there's few other plausible explanations that could account for all of the economic changes that occurred that year and all of the 'emergency' legislation enacted to move the nation away from brink.
Here's where the murky, real story begins.
According to proponents, the Federal Reserve Board held a secret meeting, on May 18, 1920, to plan a depression. Large banks began calling in loans, causing stocks to drop from a high of 138.12 in 1919, to a low of 66.24 in 1921. When the value of government bonds plummeted, they were forced to call in even more loans. When thousands of the banks' customers could not pay their notes, the banks seized their assets.
After 1922, profits rose, and with the Federal Reserve's ability to lend ten times more than their reserves, credit was easily obtained. From 1923 to 1929, $8 billion was sliced off of the deficit. The Reserve expanded the money supply by 62%, and this excess money was used to bid the stock market up to fantastic heights. The media began publicizing that there was an enormous profit to be made from the stock market. This push was planned at a meeting of the International Bankers in 1926, who made the boom possible, and who was going to bring about financial disaster later.
Once the international and central bankers realized that the U.S. was in the throws of bankruptcy (or economic collapse if you'd prefer) in 1933, they came into the picture and said that they have a mechanism whereby the nation can continue to conduct commerce even though an economic collapse was eminent, if that nation would 'pledge their citizens as collateral'.
At this point, the U.S. began taking out loans from a private, non-government affiliated corporation called the Federal Reserve thereby instantly cementing [that organization's] hold over the government. Before this time, since the Fed's inception in 1913, it had only been setup to provide administrative support and print money for the government. Sure, there's no question that the Federal Reserve was setup from day one to be a vehicle of fraud for the international bankers to insidiously subjugate the nation's economy, but they could have never imagined that, so soon, they would be handed the keys to the nation's vault. On a side note, according to Article 1, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution, it specifically states that only the U.S. Congress would ever have the power to print money and manage the nation's finances, but this control was unconstitutionally transferred to the Fed upon its creation. One has to wonder, if not for nefarious reasons, why was the Fed put into place at all?
If you're having trouble believing that there are those who would purposely plan a depression, consider this statement that, according to well-placed international journalist Daniel Estulin, was leaked out of the Bilderberg group conference in 2009, “Either a prolonged, agonizing depression that dooms the world to decades of stagnation, decline and poverty … or an intense-but-shorter depression that paves the way for a new sustainable economic world order, with less sovereignty but more efficiency."
Having no money to pay back the loans, the United States made a deal with the proverbial devil and began using its citizens as human collateral. Proponents would point out that all birth and marriage certificates are literally warehouse receipts and, to be sure, one must simply look at the simularities between warehouse receipts and birth certificates. Both document the date of issue, a serial number, a registration number or receipt number, a description of the product, and an authorized informant to notify the appropriate government agency.
Here's where things get more interesting with respect to what happened in 1933 and how that relates to maritime admiralty law and civil law.
Think of an aspect of your life that dictates the limits of your freedom. Government and law enforcement, insurance and pharmaceutical companies, taxes, building permits, driver's licenses, and more. There are hundreds if not thousands of stipulations, regulations and boundaries on our freedom. And, out of the ones that were just mentioned, how many of you researched to find out whether they apply to you or not?
Let's look at the forms of law that we currently adhere to and make some important differentiations. A very common misconception among people is that any rule or regulation that governs them falls under one category - the law. But there are many other forms of law that people abide by without realizing that, in theory, they simply do not apply to them.
Another misconception is that a nation's constitution gives the people their rights. A constitution does nothing more than list the rights that we already have as human beings. We are born with inalienable rights endowed to us by our creator. They are not given to us and they cannot be given away. The most a person can do with a right is choose whether to exercise it or not.
Maritime Admiralty Law is what's known as the law of the water. It is superceded by civil law and only applies to those who willingly contract themselves into it. The definition of Admiralty Law is a body of private international law governing the relationships between private entities which operate vessels on the oceans. Let's look at how and why a form of law that is fashioned to govern corporations, businesses, and vessels has imposed its rule over natural human beings.
This is all done through a form of word magic. A simple perversion of language has made it possible to convince people around the world that these alternative laws apply to them. One of predominate beliefs in modern culture is that licenses, permits, registrations, and other forms of documentation are required to operate motor vehicles, use public roads, build structures and establishments, engage in free enterprise and much more. Sadly, these beliefs are based on little to no investigation whatsoever and are false. This belief structure is perpetuated by Maritime Admiralty Law. This form of law was originally created to govern ships docking in foreign nations for the import and export of products and resources. It deals with banking and merchant affairs, not civil affairs. When a product is taken off of a ship and brought into a foreign land, that nation takes custody of the resource and accounts for it with a certificate. That certificate marks the birthdate of that product in the custody of the respective nation.
Now, as a human being endowed with inalienable rights at birth, think about why it is supposedly required to have a certificate of live birth when you're born. The Barron's Dictionary of Banking Terms defines a certificate as 'paper establishing an ownership claim'. So right there, you notice that everyone with a birth certificate is defined as being owned. The question then becomes owned by whom?
Let's look at the significance of the Live Statement of Birth. To be sure, it is 'the foundation document' in that all other documents stem. You can request a copy of your own L.S.B. by doing so from the Registar General. This document is where it all began and, not surprisingly, wasn't created until 1933. All identification is generated from this document. If the foundation document is no good, anything that's made from it is no good including drivers licenses, health cards. President Woodrow Wilson famously once said, "Soon, every American will be required to register their biological property."
In order for people to be used as human collateral, the government needed a mechanism to allow people to be looked at and treated like 'commodities' to facilitate using them as collateral. In essence, people needed to be monetized. Unless there's a value attached to something, after all, it can't be measured, traded, bought or sold. The collateral aspect of a human being, that's been systematically converted into a commodity, is the work or raw labor that can be expected from that person over a lifetime.
With all of this information being readily available online, the majority of people are unaware of their involvement with maritime admiralty law and that they're being used as stock. This is only possible through the manipulation of language and, as such, maritime admiralty law was employed due to its indigenous nature with respect to governing businesses, corporations, and vessels.
According to a broad consensus of the argument's proponents, admiralty law changed the meaning of the word person from a 'natural living person' to a 'corporation'. Proponents believe that drivers licenses, vehicle registrations, auto insurance forms, building permits, gun permits, work permits, tax filing documents, birth and death certificates, traffic citations, and many other forms of documentation that were once believed to be absolutely necessary only apply to 'persons' or corporations. The notion is that upon signing such a legal document, you are indirectly waiving your rights under the constitution and lowering your status to that of a corporation created with the same exact name as you. The theory indicates that the only way to reconcile your own name to that of the corporation is to take notice that the corporation has its name in all captial letters. This is known as Capitis Diminutio Maxima. You may also notice that your drivers license, birth certificate, social security card, insurance cards and more use all captial letters to legally represent the corporation with your name, not you.
A lot of opponents might argue that capital letters have been used for decades prior to 1933 and they would be absolutely correct. However, the notion is that, despite this being the case, the benign nature of using capital letters for names permanently changed when this new system was enacted in 1933. Some people argue that the fact that capital letters were used historically plays well into the hands of those who would hold the nation economically hostage and deny that any of this ever happened.
The theory continues in that the corporation is known as an artificial person, whereas you the human being are known as a natural person. This deception goes even deeper when it comes to the courts that we attend. When showing up for court, you will notice that there are seats for witnesses behind the wooden fence or barrier. The defendant must cross through the 'barrier' to the other side where the plantiff and judge are seated. Proponents argue that this act symbolizes the boarding of the ship. At this point, business can then be conducted under maritime admiralty law. The judge acting as captain or banker is responsible for settling the balance between the two sides. This is why there's always a monetary value involved in any court case. The captain is simply dealing with banking and merchant disputes. Once the balance is paid, the case is closed.
Laws are created within a society. The society that created the laws we see being enforced today is called the Law Society. In the most beautiful part of this entire deception is the fact that we, as natural human beings, are not part of the Law Society but must adhere to their rules. So, proponents argue that their laws do not apply to us. To be clear, we're not talking about laws that govern our safety or inter-human violence, but rather those 'commercial' laws that require a monetary result. People have argued for sometime that the courts are nothing but a business. Judges, lawyers, and law enforcement officers are all part of this society. Within that society, they have created their own language that's deceptively similar to English. They have these little things called statutes, acts, and regulations that seem like laws but they really only apply to those within their society. That basically means that all of the traffic violations, minimum age requirements, and everything accept for damage to another person or their property, doesn't really apply to the natural person. It applies to business and corporations.
"In religion and politics, people's beliefs and convictions are in almost every case gotten at second hand, and without examination, from authorities who have not themselves examined the questions at issue, but have taken them at second hand from other non-examiners, whose opinions about them were not worth a brass farthing." ~Mark Twain
In all forms of the perversion of language, there is a mirror reflection of this in the microcosm of the psyche. The biggest problem for humanity today is that we don't truly know ourselves anymore. We've been indoctrinated to believe exactly as we are told. We have the 9-5 job, the house, the children, the bills, the television, the hobbies and the errands that we run every single day. We eventually begin to believe that this is who we are. Ask yourself why titles and labels are so important today; mother or father, theist or atheist, republican or democrat, black or white, man or woman. Who are we really? Who are we deep down inside? We don't know because every time we hear an answer that we don't want to accept about ourselves, we deny it. Instead, we'll pass it off and project it on to somebody else and judge them for it. This is repression, and we see what repression can do to us on an individual level, but what about on a collective level of humanity? What happens if the whole world refuses to see what they truly are on the inside?
As I set out to do, I have discussed, in this article, a very contentious subject that, beyond what's been presented here, can easily be sidetracked and skewed into the realms of conspiracy. I am not advocating acting on this information, but rather that people be informed. There's also a lot more valid information that could have been included, but again I wanted to stick to the program as much as possible. The other idea to keep in mind is that, although this deception started with America, it's now global in scope and controlled by the IMF and World Bank. No matter where you're from, if your nation is part of the world economic system this information applies to you. I don't expect everyone to embrace these arguments presented, but I hope, at the very least, it will open some minds and prompt some people to conduct their own research. Remember, if given half the chance, those who would control the world's money supply would deny everything that's been presented. Nobody wants to believe that they're nothing more than a commodity to be bought and traded and those with the power not only understand this, but count on it. Some people might even argue that contemporary Earth is nothing less than a slave colony.
