A2A with John Titus

149

John Titus is the publisher of the YouTube channel, "Best Evidence". His recent works have included extraordinary documentaries on subjects such as The Financial Crisis and the lack of criminal prosecutions in the years since. His latest production, "All The Plenary's Men" will be released on Friday.

Most readers of TFMR are familiar with John's work. His documentaries have covered...

John's new production deals with the corruptive power held by the Bank of International Settlements and its agents. Its title is "All The Plenary's Men" and, once it's released on Friday, it will be embedded below.

Ahead of the release, it was great to visit directly with John about his work and I think you'll find this to be a fascinating and thought-provoking podcast.

Re "Will Humanity ever have the wisdom to cut the strings?"

no, but the Lord will:

"when the Lord Jesus will be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels in flaming fire, dealing out retribution to those who do not know God and to those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. These will pay the penalty of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power, when He comes to be glorified in His saints on that day, and to be marveled at among all who have believed—for our testimony to you was believed." - 2 Thess 1:7-10

Design a System . . .

where you force the population to use your Ponzi 'debt' notes as money. The more of these notes you print, the more you can make in interest. (Giving you many more claims on real wealth. Debt note 'money' is not real wealth.) Of course, you're only fabricating the principal. As you do so, the total of principal + interest owed is greater than the notes outstanding that you created. So, how will the 'loan' be repaid ? Only by your creating even more debt notes to inject into the system.

Everything else follows inevitably: - Increased size & intrusiveness of the central government. (The way was cleared for this after the Civil War, when the notion of the several independent states in a voluntary union was thrown in the trash bin.) Governments can be used to spend & create debt to a far greater degree than individuals.

- War & the constant threat of war. It's a great way for governments to spend a lot of money. That requires even more interest generating debt.

- Loss of purchasing power. Long term inflation as new debt notes are constantly created.

- Corrupted politicians and a sham of a political system. The power to create debt note 'money' gives one the power to bribe or threaten anyone.

- Corrupted 'education' and media. Use propaganda to convince the debt note enslaved population that they are 'free'.

- Degradation of a society of people that are slowly bled dry. Two working adults needed to support a family. Fewer moms at home.

- Off shoring of industry and use of cheap immigration labor. Cheap Made in China goods on shelves. - - Helps to hide the long term loss of dollar purchasing power caused by the fabricating of more debt notes. Thus, China rises as an economic power & holds vast amounts of Treasury notes. They hold them because of the USD reserve currency status & to keep the yuan down for trade advantage. Before Kissinger/Nixon they couldn't even feed their own population.

- A domestic police state/ spy state to try to keep everyone in line.

- A society filled with lies and pretense and willful ignorance.

etc, etc, etc

I have never heard a recent politician address this directly in speeches to the general citizenry. (There are some in our past history.) The focus is on the outcomes of all this, not the root cause. Even Ron Paul, bless him, spoke in terms of 'Audit the Fed'. He didn't say "We're currently enmeshed in an un-Constitutional, criminal Ponzi 'debt' scam that is at the root of most of our problems domestically and overseas. If we don't end it, we're screwed."

I recently watched a video about the Gurkha soldiers. For those that don't know, they are warriors known for their fierceness and use of a large curved shaped knife called the khukri. They fought the British and were admired by them. Later, British Army regiments were formed with Gurkha soldiers (and British officers). They fought in the colonial wars in India and later in other theaters of war, including WW1 & WW2 and recently in the Middle East wars. They have fought with great distinction and courage that is admirable.

But while watching the video another thought came to me. How is it that many men from Tibet (and also from India), would come to don the uniform of a foreigner ? And what would compel them to wage war against their own people, or others who they really had no prior disagreement with ? It can't just be about the money. Dead men can't spend it, and many of them are willing to give their lives in service to the foreigner.

THAT . . . is the level of indoctrination/mind control that enables the few to pull the strings of the many.

Will Humanity ever have the wisdom to cut the strings ?

It is interesting how not a single Senator or member of Congress

Ever does anything actionable against Wall Street, the TBTF Banks, Central Banks(Fed) or Shadow Banks that operate, well, in the shadows If you follow the money and people you will find most are connected in one way or the other to certain very wealthy monied interests in a small middle eastern nation. Any everyone in the House and Senate, Oval Office and K street is their best friends.

One STRONG REASON you will never see anyone take on the banker cabal is every one of these noble, honorable elected officials has what is not so commonly called

A CONTROL FILE

It contains something that if every released, would destroy the career, election chances and maybe even the freedom of that politician. Maybe it's a video of his or her with children in a compromising position (drug induced by MOSSAD, MI 6 or CIA) Or a party at some off site place where certain acts are encouraged ala Eyes Wide Shut. Or Bohemian Grove or a family member caught inflagrante delecto

They all do it but no one can know. We prudish Americans have a long memory and short tolerance for amoral activities from our elected officials even though many nothing less than rutting horn dogs in heat when the cameras are no rolling

How many politicians have been outted with little more than a salacious comment, rude gesture or unsubstantiated rumor that takes wings to the point of ruining a politician's career. Some spend an election cycle in the time out chair. Others go into banking or lobbying, but rest assured, when it comes time to vote for the banksters and financial men the vote is virtually uniform for the paymasters and their spy apparachics.
Did Trump do something on the Lolita Express and Epstein's Island Maybe he grabbed someone by the pussy. Or more.

I suspect that someone has the goods on him even if it's minor stuff and that is enough to smash his presidency; one reviled by half the voters and all the MSM.

The Fed and all it's ilk will never see justice brought to their doorstep because no elected official will ever step up and make a stand. Maybe with the exception of Ron Paul.

Frankly, in my opinion, he was allowed to say what he said because he would never achieve his goals. He did act as a good lightening rod and diffuse some of the voters angst, giving them hope that their champion would prevail against the entrenched monied interests. But he was marginalized by the power brokers and sent packing before he could do real damage. That is sad but the state of affairs in our government.

Bernie and Ron Paul agreed about the Banks

Ron Paul just wanted a much smaller, less costly government, leaving more income in the pockets of individuals to spend as they saw fit. Not more expensive free government programs for everyone potentially expanding the bureaurocratic Deep State even more.

Silver - Weekly Chart - Sitting on Support

Despite everyone thinking Silver was breaking down this week, according to my pitch fork style charting, it is actually sitting on two support lines on its weekly chart & is ready to bounce higher.

Gold - Weekly Chart Breakout

As far as I am concerned, Gold has broken out on its weekly chart using my pitch fork style charting.

On the weekly chart you can see the price closed higher than the highest parallel line for 3 weeks now.

In addition, the 10-Wk Moving Avg (Green) has crossed over its previous high using the formation’s parallel line (Green).

Next, the 10 Wk Moving Avg is over both the 30 & 200 Wk MAs.

Next, the price is above all 3 MAs.

Finally, the 3 technical indicators shown below are bullish.

(This chart is actually from 28 March, even though it shows 23 March.)
