Who was Roger Craig..why does it matter so much to us now..?

In Defense of Roger Craig

Although Captain Fritz denied that Deputy Craig was in his office and identified in Fritz presence that indeed the man Fritz was questioning in his office..the man who Craig saw running down the hill ..the man who Craig said got into a car that Oswald identified in front of Fritz and Craig as belonging to Ruth Paine was Lee Harvey Oswald

Is it possible that this station wagon was the car that Roger Craig saw in the Plaza minutes after JFK was assassinated.

Roger Craig in 1969

In his 1975 book Forgive My Grief Vol. III, author Penn Jones wrote, “Roger Craig was a great American.”When Jones wrote those words, Craig, a former Deputy in the Dallas County Sheriff’s Department, had recently died allegedly by his own hand. It was Jones’ contention that “…the treatment Craig received after John F. Kennedy was assassinated…caused his death.”

Roger Dean Craig was an important witness to the JFK assassination, and his testimony is highly indicative of conspiracy. By now his story has been told many times by many different writers. But it appears there are those still attempting to smear Roger Craig’s name and discount what he reported seeing on November 22, 1963.

One of the most recent attacks on Roger Craig is The Rambler Man, a copyrighted article appearing on several computer bulletin board services in 1994. In it Texas writer Dave Perry asserts, “One can almost picture Roger Craig, trying to stir the assassination conspiracy pot.” I submit this highly conjectural statement is at very least a debatable point.

The “Rambler” in Perry’s title refers to a car Craig said he saw shortly after the President was shot. To his dying day, Craig insisted the vehicle was a Rambler station wagon, and there is strong evidence to support that identification. Perry and other detractors say the woman Craig believed owned the Rambler actually owned a Chevrolet wagon; therefore Roger Craig was wrong. The car may or may not have been a Chevy–but that clouds the real issue, which is what Craig said the vehicle was involved in.

Deputy Craig was one of many officers standing in front of the Dallas Sheriff’s office at Main and Houston streets at the time of the assassination. When the shooting stopped there was great confusion in Dealey Plaza. Craig ran toward Elm Street where dozens of people surged up the grassy knoll, and followed a policeman to behind a fence, where, he told the Warren Commission, he “began moving people back out of the railroad yard.” He detained a woman who was attempting to leave the area and handed her over to another officer for questioning. A short time later he encountered Arnold Rowland along Elm Street, who “said he saw two men on the–uh–sixth floor of the Book Depository Building over there; one of them had a rifle with a telescopic sight on it” –and turned Rowland and his wife over to another officer so that their statements could be taken.[1]

From here Craig went across and down Elm Street to investigate a report that a bullet had ricocheted off the sidewalk curb. It was at this point that Craig made his most critical observation.

Mr. Belin. You heard someone whistle?
Mr. Craig. Yes. So I turned and–uh–saw a man start to run down the hill on the north side of Elm Street, running down toward Elm Street.
Mr. Belin. And, about where was he with relation to the School Book Depository Building?
Mr. Craig. Uh–directly across that little side street that runs in front of it. He was on the south side of it.

[some material omitted][2]

Mr. Belin. All right. And then what did you see happen?
Mr. Craig. I saw a light-colored station wagon, driving real slow, coming west on Elm Street from Houston. Uh–actually, it was nearly in line with him. And the driver was leaning to his right looking up the hill at the man running down.
Mr. Belin. Uh-huh.
Mr. Craig. And the station wagon stopped almost directly across from me. And–uh–the man continued down the hill and got in the station wagon. And I attempted to cross the street. I wanted to talk to both of them. But the–uh–traffic was so heavy I couldn’t get across the street. And–uh–they were gone before I could–
Mr. Belin. Where did the station wagon head?
Mr. Craig. West on Elm Street.
Mr. Belin. Under the triple underpass?
Mr. Craig. Yes.[3]

Deputy Craig immediately ran to the Texas School Book Depository (TSBD), where police attention had begun to focus, and reported what he had seen. Years later he wrote:

There was a man standing on the steps of the Book Depository Building and he turned to me and said, “I’m with the Secret Service.” This man was about 40 years old, sandy-haired with a distinct cleft in his chin. He was well-dressed in a gray business suit. I was naive enough at the time to believe that the only people there were actually officers–after all, this was the command post. I gave him the information. He showed little interest in the persons leaving. However, he seemed extremely interested in the description of the Rambler. This was the only part of my statement which he wrote down in his little pad he was holding.

Here Craig may have had an encounter with a conspirator. According to the Warren Report, “Secret Service Agents assigned to the motorcade remained at their posts during the race to the hospital. None stayed at the scene of the shooting…”[4]Craig next participated in the search of TSBD, and testified that he was on the sixth floor when the alleged murder weapon was found. Although he did not mention it in the report he filed the next day, or even to the Warren Commission, Craig subsequently stated that the rifle discovered on the sixth floor was a Mauser–not a Mannlicher-Carcano, which the Commission decided was the murder weapon.

Fast forward several hours. Craig heard an arrest had been made in connection with the shooting of Officer J.D. Tippit. As he told the Warren Commission, “I kept thinking about this subject that had run and got in the car. So, I called Captain Fritz’ office and talked to one of his officers and–uh–told him what I had saw and give him a description of the man, asked him how it fit the man they had picked up as a suspect. And–uh–they asked me to come up and look at him at Captain Fritz’s office.” Craig took one look at the Tippit shooting suspect and said it was the same man he had seen flee the TSBD.

That suspect, of course, was Lee Harvey Oswald.

Mr. Craig. Captain Fritz then asked him about the–uh–he said, “What about this station wagon?” And the suspect interrupted him and said, “That station wagon belongs to Mrs. Paine”–I believe is what he said. “Don’t try to tie her into this. She had nothing to do with it.” And–uh–Captain Fritz then told him, as close as I can remember, that “All we’re trying to do is find out what happened, and this man saw you leave from the scene.” And the suspect again interrupted Captain Fritz and said, “I told you people I did.” And–uh–yeah–then, he said–then he continued and he said, “Everybody will know who I am now.”[5]

“Mrs. Paine” is Ruth Paine, the suburban Dallas woman with whom Oswald’s estranged wife Marina was living. Mrs. Paine later told the Warren Commission she owned a Chevrolet station wagon. The Commission seems to have taken her at her word, and dropped the issue.But this portion of testimony is a matter of dispute, because Roger Craig later claimed his words had been altered–one of at least twelve alterations he said were made over some fourteen pages of testimony. Craig insisted that neither he nor Fritz used the term station wagon. He wrote in 1971, “Fritz said car–station wagon was not mentioned by anyone but Oswald.” That would seem to be an inadvertent admission by Oswald that the escape happened as Craig described it. Unfortunately for Roger Craig, Captain Fritz said the incident in his office never happened.

Mr. Ball. Did [Craig] ever come into your office and talk to you in the presence of Oswald?
Mr. Fritz. In the presence of Oswald?
Mr. Ball. Yes.
Mr. Fritz. No, sir; I am sure he did not.[6]

Whether Oswald made another statement Craig attributed to him–“Everybody will know who I am now”–has also become an issue unto itself. Craig later stated that what Oswald said was not a brag–it was the subdued statement of someone whose cover had been blown. The Warren Commission, however, simultaneously skewed its meaning, and dismissed it as having never happened: “…Neither Captain Fritz nor any other officer can remember that Oswald dramatically arose from his chair and said, `Everybody will know who I am now.’ If Oswald had made such a statement, Captain Fritz would probably have remembered it.”[7] Unless it was more convenient to forget.The Warren Report states on page 160, “The Commission could not accept important elements of Craig’s testimony.” They could not accept that Roger Craig had seen Lee Oswald flee the TSBD fifteen minutes after the shooting, and escape with a second man in a Nash Rambler. Such an escape smacked of conspiracy–and the Commission was having none of that. Officially, Oswald left the TSBD on foot within two or three minutes of the last shot being fired–although the Commission does concede that no witness saw him leave the building[8]. They have him boarding a bus “seven short blocks east of” the TSBD, and use the identification of a former landlady, Mary Bledsoe, to support that.

But Oswald’s presence on the bus is actually rather difficult to establish, a bus transfer being the only hard evidence that he might have been there. Cecil McWatters, the bus driver, was unable to identify him, and he had no memory of Bledsoe getting on the bus.[9]

Bledsoe’s own testimony is also uncertain. There is no corroborating testimony that places Oswald on the bus. Bledsoe ID’d him in part by the shirt she said he wore; her description generally matches the brownish, heavy-textured shirt Oswald had on when he was arrested.[10]

But according to a report on Oswald’s interrogation written by Captain Fritz, Oswald said he “changed both his shirt and trousers before going to the show,” that is, to the Texas Theater where he was arrested.[11] Then how could Bledsoe have seen that heavy brown shirt?

The Commission writes that “the evidence indicates that he continued wearing the same shirt which he was wearing all morning and which he was still wearing when arrested.” That seems to support Bledsoe’s testimony, but it doesn’t square with a statement given on November 22 by Howard Brennan, who became a prized Warren Commission witness. He described the man he saw in the TSBD as wearing “light colored clothing.”[12] I can only conclude that Bledsoe’s testimony must be called into question, and the issue of whether Oswald ever got on a bus ten minutes after the assassination called into doubt.

Then what of Roger Craig’s sighting of a man later identified as Oswald fleeing in a Rambler station wagon driven by a second man?

In Case Closed, Gerald Posner dismisses Craig’s story as a “tale of a getaway car at Dealey Plaza,” though he does not provide any information beyond this fleeting reference.[13] Readers who know little of the JFK case beyond Posner’s book might be surprised to learn there is strong evidence to corroborate the former Deputy’s “tale.”

A photograph turned up a few years after the assassination showing the TSBD about ten minutes after the shooting. The Hertz clock on the roof reads 12:40. That photograph shows what appears to be a Rambler station wagon in the traffic on Elm–lending support Craig’s story.

Much stronger, however, is Commission Document 5, which according to author Henry Hurt “was omitted from the twenty-six volumes of Warren Commission exhibits. It finally was discovered years later in documents housed in the National Archives.”

Hurt’s account of CD 5:

Soon after the shooting, Marvin C. Robinson was driving west along Elm Street in heavy traffic. According to an FBI report dated the next day, just as Robinson crossed the Elm and Houston intersection, he saw a “light-colored Nash station wagon” stop in front of the Book Depository. A white man walked down the grassy incline from the building, got into the Nash, and the car moved off in the direction of Oak Cliff. Robinson was unable to provide any additional information.[14]

There are also the statements of Richard Randolph Carr, a steelworker who also said he saw a Rambler in Dealey Plaza. Carr was on an upper floor of a building that was under construction on November 22. From his position he could see into the sixth floor of the TSBD, where just before the motorcade arrived he saw a stocky man wearing a hat, sportcoat, and glasses. When the shooting stopped Carr descended to ground level, where he again saw the man in the sportcoat. Carr said he followed him for about a block and saw him get into a Nash Rambler driven by a dark-complected man.To this account, Henry Hurt adds:

It should be noted that over the years Carr’s testimony has been somewhat inconsistent. And, for whatever reason, he has been seriously intimidated since originally offering his account to officials. He has been shot at and has found sticks of dynamite wired to his autobmobile’s ignition switch. Still, Carr’s earliest reports to officials are consistent on his sighting of the Nash Rambler.[15]

They are also consistent with the accounts of Marvin Robinson and Roger Craig.Posner also attempts to discredit Craig’s testimony of seeing Oswald in Captain Fritz’ office after his arrest. Once again a photograph that surfaced a few years later seems to support Craig. It shows the Deputy at police headquarters, where he said he was, as Oswald was being interrogated in Fritz’s office. Posner relegates the issue to a footnote, stating, “The picture does not show Craig in the inner office where Oswald was kept, but instead in a separate outer office.”[16] This is an extremely weak argument, for that photograph without question places Craig in the vicinity of Oswald–just like he said he was. Like any photo, it shows us one split second in time. It is unlikely Craig sat around twiddling his thumbs. It is entirely possible that Craig was in the inner office, where he said he was, either sometime before or sometime after this photograph was taken.

Furthermore, it must be remembered that none of the interrogation of Oswald was tape recorded, or even written down by a stenographer. Considering the enormity of what had occurred and the enormity of its implications, and also considering the importance of whatever could be learned from Oswald, this is incomprehensible–unless what Oswald had to say was so explosive it was suppressed. I would speculate that if that were the case, Captain Fritz might have more reason to lie than Roger Craig.

What of Roger Craig’s assertion that the weapon found on the sixth floor of the TSBD was not a Mannlicher-Carcano, but a Mauser? While there does not seem to be anything in the Commission’s published record showing Craig made that claim in November 1963, or even to the Commission a few months later, others did make–and the Commission published, but then ignored, their statements.

In the “Speculations and Rumors” section of the Warren Report (Appendix 12), the Commission states, “Speculation: the rifle found on the sixth floor of the TSBD was identified as a 7.65 Mauser by the man who found it, Deputy Constable Seymour Weitzman.”[17] This is not speculation but fact–the rifle was identified, at first, as a Mauser. Not only Weitzman, who signed a notarized affidavit to that effect on November 23, but Deputy Sheriff Eugene Boone identified the weapon as a 7.65 Mauser–Boone in two written reports dated November 22.[18]

In its Report the Commission tried to downplay this identification. It states that Weitzman “only saw the rifle at a glance,” although his notarized statement describes the weapon in some detail. As for Boone, while the Report acknowledges he was one of the men who found the hidden rifle, it does not disclose that he, like Weitzman, identified it as a Mauser.

In short, the weapon found on the sixth floor of the TSBD less than an hour after the assassination was reliably reported to be a Mauser–and that, in the final analysis, is the critical point.

The years following the assassination were difficult ones for Roger Craig. The man named Officer of the Year in 1960 was fired from the Sheriff’s Department on July 4, 1967. Officially he was fired because he was not performing his job adequately. Others contend the real reason was his unyielding position on what he observed when President Kennedy was murdered.

After Craig left the Sheriff’s Department several attempts were reportedly made on his life. One of these attempts left him with chronic back problems that may have contributed to his untimely death. He held a series of jobs and at one point worked for $1.60 an hour, “keeping…shopping carts out of the aisles,” he wrote in his autobiography. For a time he served as a Municipal judge in Midlothian, Texas, and also assisted in the Garrison investigation.

On May 15, 1975, Roger Craig committed suicide at the age of 39. He left a note that said, “I am tired of all this pain,” which was interpreted as a reference to his injured back. But many years later, a friend observed that Craig “was totally obsessed by the assassination. That obsession ended up destroying him.”[19]

Roger Craig was a courageous man. In spite of everything, he never changed his story of seeing a man he later identified as Lee Harvey Oswald escape the assassination scene in a Rambler station wagon, or of seeing Oswald at Police headquarters on November 22, 1963.

Penn Jones was right. Roger Craig was, indeed, a great American.

For interested readers, below is the restored excerpt from Roger Craig’s Warren Commission testimony, a portion of which was omitted from In Defense of Roger Craig.

Mr. Belin. You heard someone whistle?
Mr. Craig. Yes. So I turned and–uh–saw a man start to run down the hill on the north side of Elm Street, running down toward Elm Street.
Mr. Belin. And, about where was he with relation to the School Book Depository Building?
Mr. Craig. Uh–directly across that little side street that runs in front of it. He was on the south side of it.
Mr. Belin. And he was on the south side of what would be an extension of Elm Street, if Elm Street didn’t curve down into the underpass?
Mr. Craig. Right; right.
Mr. Belin. And where was he with relation to the west side of the School Book Depository Building?
Mr. Craig. Right by the–uh–well, actually, directly in line with the west corner–the southwest corner.
Mr. Belin. He was directly in line with the southwest corner of the building?
Mr. Craig. Yes.
Mr. Belin. And he was on the south curve of that street that runs right in front of the building there?
Mr. Craig. Yes.
Mr. Belin. And he started to run toward Elm Street as it curves under the underpass?
Mr. Craig. Yes; directly down the grassy portion of the park.
Mr. Belin. All right. And then what did you see happen?
Mr. Craig. I saw a light-colored station wagon, driving real slow, coming west on Elm Street from Houston. Uh–actually, it was nearly in line with him. And the driver was leaning to his right looking up the hill at the man running down.
Mr. Belin. Uh-huh.
Mr. Craig. And the station wagon stopped almost directly across from me. And–uh–the man continued down the hill and got in the station wagon. And I attempted to cross the street.

The Most Powerful 545 people in America..

Do any of you happen to know who does what within our
Federal Government?..As an example, do you know who is reponsible
for proposing a Federal Budget every year..?

                                                                      THE PRESIDENT …

BUT..

If the President proposes a Federal Budget..Does that mean the President
is the one who ultimately is to  blame for our fiscal irresponsibility..?

                                                                      NOPE..?

I have often been critical of people who put all the weight
of our sinking ship on The President..The Internet and this site is
filled with well-meaning people who want to make President Obama
the main bad boy in what is happening to our Country right now..
What you will learn is that it is actually partially his fault
but..the real culprits in this soap opera gone stupid
is who I refer to as

The 545 People

A while back a man  by the name of Charlie Reese..
a retired Journalist for the Orlando Sentinal..revealed
to all of us  these 545 Desperadoes..naming
them..Where the work..and what their role has
been in our society..and how these 545 play out
a modern version of “Don’t Blame Me”
when in fact..They are specifically the ones to blame

So hopefully we can all get on the same page regarding who to
go to for answers to where we find ourselves today…
That would be where I call..

“Deep Trouble”

545 PEOPLE — By Charlie Reese

Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then
campaign against them.

Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are

against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?

Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and

high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?

You and I don’t propose a federal budget. The President does.

You and I don’t have the Constitutional authority to vote on

appropriations. The House of Representatives does.

You and I don’t write the tax code, Congress does.

You and I don’t set fiscal policy, Congress does.

LADIES AND GENTLEMAN..MEET THE 545

You and I don’t control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.
One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one president, and nine Supreme
Court justices equates to 545 human beings out of the 300 million are
directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic
problems that plague this country.

EXCLUDING…

I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem
was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its
Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered,
but private, central bank.

I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason.
They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator,
a congressman, or a president to do one cotton-picking thing. I don’t
care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash. The
politician has the power to accept or reject it…. No matter what the
lobbyist promises, it is the legislator’s responsibility to determine how
he votes.

Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that
what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con
regardless of party.

What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive

amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating deficits…. .
The president can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to
accept it.

The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole
responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and
approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House?

Nancy Pelosi….. She is the leader of the majority party. She and fellow
House members, not the president, can approve any budget they want. If
the president vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to.

It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million cannot replace
545 people who stand convicted — by present facts — of incompetence and
irresponsibility. I can’t think of a single domestic problem that is not
traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain
truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then
it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.

If the tax code is unfair, it’s because they want it unfair.

If the budget is in the red, it’s because they want it in the red ..

If the Army & Marines are in IRAQ , it’s because they want them in IRAQ

If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement
plan not available to the people, it’s because they want it that way.

There are no insoluble government problems.

Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they
hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and
advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to
regulate and from whom they can take this power. Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical
forces like “the economy,” “inflation,” or “politics” that prevent them
from doing what they take an oath to do.

Those 545 people, and they alone, are responsible.

They, and they alone, have the power..

They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are
their bosses.

Provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees…

We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!

prosperous in the world.
We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the
world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

What in the hell happened? Can you spell ‘politicians? ‘ I hope this
goes around THE USA at least 100 times!!!

YOU can help it get there!!!

GO AHEAD – – – BE AN AMERICAN!!!

What would America Look Like If The Federal reserve never existed?

 

The Economic Collapse blog had an interesting article called “10 Things That Would Be Different If The Federal Reserve Had

Never Been Created”.  The for profit private bank known as the Federal Reserve is the root cause of many, if not all problems in

this country.  To give a private bank the power to create money, set interest rates and control our money supply is insane.  Think

of the huge unfair advantage you have to control global agendas if you can create the global reserve currency out of thin air.  You

could easily do the following:

* Buy off politicians to control the countries agenda.  An example may be writing regulation that would collectivize the wealth

and send the wealth to the gigantic global banks that likely make up the Federal Reserve, giving most of a country’s wealth to the

elite, then send that wealth offshore to avoid taxation.  The elite that would benefit from this would include the Rockefeller’s,

Rothschild’s, JP Morgan’s and others.
* You could control organizations that right regulations to make it difficult for new wealth to be created for anyone else other

than the elite.  This regulation would also monopolize industries that are under your control.
* You could control the media to make sure no one understands your corrupt organization.  You could also have the media

spew out propaganda saying the “rich” are people making $250K a year, even though every statistic shows these are the people

who create jobs.  You could clamp down on these people creating jobs while giving the elite huge loopholes to avoid taxation.
* Another great idea would be use the media to divide and conquer.  You could do this by creating a false left/right paradigm

so your people focus on two parties which ultimately are controlled by your corrupt bank.  This false left/right paradigm would

have the people fighting each other and not looking at the real puppet master which would be your corrupt bank.
* You could control the military.  Militaries need a ton of capital for their wars.  Where do you think the money comes from?

If you had a corrupt for profit bank that wanted to bring in a global government, you could use your military to attack key targets

in order to bring in your global government.  Who would your targets be? I would guess anyone who does not accept my reserve

currency or does not buy oil utilizing my reserve currency.  You would also make a ton of money on your these wars particularly

if you never win the war.
* You could control and fund both sides of every war.  Making massive profits regardless of the outcome.  A civil war within

your own country could be very profitable, both sides would need funds from your bank.
* You could create booming economies or depressions by controlling the money supply
* You could create a depression knowing asset prices such as real estate and key infrastructure will plummet, then use your

monopoly money to buy infrastructure for pennies on the dollar giving your criminal organization more power and control.
* You could control a country’s food supply and water supply by controlling high level executives at organizations such as

Monsanto.  You could control the executives by controlling the government.
* You could control your countries homeland security.  Homeland security needs money.  If you controlled homeland security

you could use them to target citizens that are against your agenda.
* You could control a countries healthcare system.  A healthcare system like what the US will have in 2014 will need a ton of

capital.  Where do you think that money will come from?  The organization that creates money, the Federal Reserve.
* You could control other corrupt countries that depend on your global reserve currency.
* You could control local police forces by getting them dependant on your monopoly money.  Then teach your forces that

citizens who question your agenda are potential terrorist.
* You could control all your countries intelligent agencies.
* You could control your children’s education.  You would make sure the public curriculum would not teach children about

money, your corrupt organization or your false left/right paradigm
* You could control key people at state-run universities, by controlling the government.

These are only a few things you could do if you could create money and control the money supply.  As you can see the power to

create money is extreme.  You would not deal with low-level people to control these areas.  You would create a

compartmentalized system full of bureaucracy with only a very few in power controlling your agenda.  This way you would only

need to control a few people at the very top and they could trickle down your agenda. This is why our founding fathers fought

against giving private banks the ability to create money.  Who knows what is happening behind close doors but the point is

corruption could run rampant for those who create money, control the money supply and set interest rates.

Here are a few items listed on the Economic Collapse Blog

#1 If the U.S. government had been issuing debt-free money all this time, the U.S. government could conceivably have a national

debt of zero dollars.  Instead, we currently have a national debt that is over 14 trillion dollars.

#2 If the U.S. government had been issuing debt-free money all this time, the U.S. government would likely not be spending one

penny on interest payments.  Instead, the U.S. government spent over 413 billion dollars on interest on the national debt during

fiscal 2010.  This is money that belonged to U.S. taxpayers that was transferred to the U.S. government which in turn was

transferred to wealthy international bankers and other foreign governments.  It is being projected that the U.S. government will be

paying 900 billion dollars just in interest on the national debt by the year 2019.

#3 If the U.S. government could issue debt-free money, there would not even have to be a debate about raising “the debt ceiling”,

because such a debate would not even be necessary.

#4 If the U.S. government could issue debt-free money, it is conceivable that we would not even need the IRS.  You doubt this?

Well, the truth is that the United States did just fine for well over a hundred years without a national income tax.  But about the

same time the Federal Reserve was created a national income tax was instituted as well.  The whole idea was that the wealth of

the American people would be transferred to the U.S. government by force and then transferred into the hands of the

ultra-wealthy in the form of interest payments.

#5 If the Federal Reserve did not exist, we would not be on the verge of national insolvency.  The Congressional Budget Office is

projecting that U.S. government debt held by the public will reach a staggering 716 percent of GDP by the year 2080.  Remember

when I used the term “debt spiral” earlier?  Well, this is what a debt spiral looks like….

My Hunch Is That You Still Don’t Believe The truth

I am still blown away by what I am not hearing from us..anywhere!..I watch BLOG after BLOB..Still So Obama centered..that people still think Barry be bop is running the Ranch..When in fact the Ranch may appear to be place where we used to be a Republic…Listen to my charges folks..and than you tell me..where am I wrong..?..

First and most importantly..The Federal Reserve Corp. is our national debt…period..They own our debt ladies and cowboys….One of the greatest and magnificent games of masquerade was began way back in 1913..and continues to this very day unworried about being discovered…Ben “Godfather” Bernanke like all of the turds who was Head Fed before him never…ever..reported to one of our “Spokesman”..(Presidents)..The Rothschild Clan are the primary owners of USA right now..They own the majority of stock in the Fed..The Rockefeller Gaggle may be worth a billion or two..But The boys from the Bank of England are said to be worth ..$60 Trillion large..The two old dynasty’s bicker and bitch but

make no mistake..It was Baron de Rothschild back when our great grand-folks were still crapping yellow..who said..”Give me control of a country’s currency..and I do not care whose flag is atop the capital..roughly translated it means..”It is the Golden Rule..He who owns the most gold..rules”..

How many of you non believers remember back in ’82 …Ronnie Rag-man..had an independent study done by a group of non political business giants..to tell Ron ..why the hell our federal government was broke..and had been so since Hitler was a Lance Corporal..This study was called

THE GRACE COMMISSION REPORT

Peter Grace was given carte blanche to open any door …look into any book..question any one who was affiliated with our bottom line…Several weeks later..Peter reported to Ron..that the work was done..That they found the thief..and was Ron sure he wanted to know the truth..?

“Mr President, we as a group have worked on this report daily for almost seven months..Because we knew..that the findings here would state our findings without prejudice…The reason for our country’s debt is ..The federal Reserve Corp…and their muscle..the IRS..Here is what has been happening since probably 1920..Not one penny…of the Federal Income tax that is gathered every year..has ever been paid for anything in our Federal Government…That sum (last year about $485 Billion was collected)..Is sent to the Bank Of England where the Family Rothschild than distributes it tio the roughly 5,000 board members who own the stock in The federal Reserve Corp..Less 1% which is given to the sec. general of the United Nations as a perk i suppose

There you have it ..the truth..about how and why we are sitting in a sink hole that can not ever be resolved..Now I have told you in plain Americano what I have discovered by checking and double checking what is out there for any of you to give a damn enough to find..

BUT..NEVER BELIEVE A WORD I SAY..DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH AND TELL ME WHERE I AM WRONG

 

BUT …

The only way I see us overthrowing this curse from our souls..Is to declare the ultimate truth

for all to see..The Federal reserve is an Unconstitutional entity within our Government..and has been illegally acting as or central bank..and given the power to create and assign value to pour currency..to create interest ratess..to screw us for nearly 100 years

“CONGRESS AND ONLY CONGRESS WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE COINAGE AND VALUE OF OUR CURRENCY”..So states our Constitution..

The paper we carry as money is Federal reserve notes..backed by nada..and as worthless as your brother in law

But how do we get a bought and paid for Congress to stop being traitors..and do the right thing.?

how can we ever trust any officer within the pathetic cowards and thieves like Obama ..have stolen us to the poor house..?

 

AND ..YOU STILL WILL; NOT EVEN TAKE A FEW HOURS FROM THE CABLE PORN TO SEE IF I AM TELLING IT RIGHT

RIGHT?
