The CAFR Swindle - Public Found Money is Yours!

Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) Swindle - Biggest Game in Public Finance by Jerry Day Media. 15 minute documentary.

        CAFR vs Budget

0:30 CAFR: Superior. The public account of any public agency. It is standard to all public agencies. The court house, school boards, water districts... City, County & State. They all have them. They all have CAFRs.Most folk have never heard of CAFR, let alone know why they are so important. The hard numbers are in the CAFR. All accounts, flows, & holdings.

1:00 Budget: Inferior. The budget is a propaganda hallucination. A projection. A goal. A target. e.g.: No money for a dog catcher.

3:00 Los Angles, California CAFR vs Budget swindle, 2007-2912 years. $8 billion money swindle.

5:00 Government under fund almost everything. They uses budgets to argue for more tax payments.

8:00 Government revenue from this swindle is double revenue from taxes. "CAFLF hidden account revenue" = 2 x "Tax Revenue"

8:30 Off budget. Rainy day. Etc. Accounts to spirit away.

9:00 When government crys for more taxes, demand, "Show me the CAFR!"

10:00 We need to audit those CAFRs. Every single one of them.

11:00 Call to action. Demand: audits; tax reductions; paid services; sell investment not related to service.

12:00 War & dirt cheap labor.

15:00 We need to tell our public officials that the CAFR money is ours, not theirs.

    Jerry Day Media, a Ron Paul Supporter.
    This video exposes a deliberate and massive swindle that is perpetrated by every government agency from your local school district all the way up to the Federal government. This is the second Version of this expose' on public finance. Similar to first version, but incorporating input from Walter Burien and Clint Richardson. See their sites for much more info:

Jerry Day - Good job!

Jerry did a good job on his 1st CAFR video.

He is not happy after learning the "name of the game".

It is all about wealth transfer. Your wealth into the government's coffers.

The key points to look at to determine if your local government is racketeering for profit are:

1. What has been the growth of the "annual take" over 5, 10, 15, 25-years. The easiest reference point there is looking at the total budget each year for a city, county, school district, or state and then the population growth within the state, and then the income / gross sales increase of the private sector. I will give one example that is not the exception, but the rule:

ARIZONA on the State level:

When looking at the state CAFR data from 1983 in the Statistical Section of the 1992 CAFR (goes back ten-years), the budget was about 2.3-billion dollars - page 159 (Expenditures)

Jump ahead to 2008 (25-years later)as seen in the 2009 CAFR the budget - page 240(total primary government expenses) was now 29.6 billion dollars. So here we have over a 1000% increase in "the take".

Now let's look at the population and income increase over the same time period:

1983 population from the latest (1980) census data = 2,718,215
1983 income average = $11,030 - page 163

(**Noted on the top of page 164, 4 out of 5 of the top employers were government)

As of 2008 as seen in the 2009 CAFR:

2008 population = 6,500,180 - page 266
2008 income average = $34,335 - page 266

(**Noted on the bottom of page 266, 3 out of 5 of the top employers were government and 6 out of the top 10 were government)

So the population a little over doubled and the personal income a little over tippled. (I note that a very large percentage of the work force were government employees)

So here we have the example of "State" government increasing their "take" by 1000% with the population's increase of income being about 300% and the population increasing a little over 200%.

This is a factor of about 3 to 1 in 25-years per the take accomplished by government on the state level over the income increase the people accomplished.

Now keep in mind with the 1000% increase of the state's "take", a substantially higher percentage of the individual's income is deducted from the average showing of $34,335 so if that is factored in, the population's income increase was not 300% but more like 200%, or growth in the State government's take of 4 to 1.

Now you know why Gorbachev went democratic for the Soviet block countries over two decades ago. Our government in the USA had the better blueprint for the complete takeover and control of the people, wealth of a country, and control of a nation than the antiquated communist principle of operation ever did.

As the people of this country were masterfully entertained into distraction, illusion, and selective presentation "due to the money involved", the wealth of a nation was taken from them one bit at a time, each and every year compounded.

The valve on that process "of the take" out of greed and oppertunity was turned up in 2001 with 911 and then again in 2008 with the housing market bubble burst. Both incidents were masterfully orchestrated allowing for "massive" wealth transfer to take place into the coffers of government ownership...

As I have brought forward now on the site over the last ten-years, collective government, one little bit at a time over the decades has taken over the wealth of the nation.

Collective government over the decades now "Owns it all" by investment and perpetuated increases in their gross income. The entire wealth of the private sector has diminished in comparison to collective government to be insignificant in comparison.

REMEDY??? I have brought that forward for over five-years now. The drain of taxation needs to be removed and the population and the population needs to become the "First Line Beneficiary" of the wealth amassed by collective government.

TRF - Tax Retirement Fund management designed to cancel out all taxation through the consolidation of the collective government investment wealth held combined with contributions made from government enterprise operations. In this fashion government operating expenses are met and the population has the ever oppressing burden of taxation taken off their shoulders. Additionally it motivates government to downsize becoming more efficient and creates a prospering economy for the next thousand years with all now on the "same page". (The City of Mesa,AZ has been doing this in part now for 40-years)

* No taxation and the population maintains their productivity value and wealth;

** Unlimited capital reinvestment growing in the TRF accounts for investment with the industrial and financial industry groups;

*** Government administrations having a steady and good income from the TRF management principle of operation to meet general purpose operating budgets.

A Win - win, for all involved and a very prosperous economy for the next 1000-years to boot!

A conservative estimate of the collective investment wealth amassed held both domestic and international by US local and federal government (about 184,000 separate operations large and small) is 110 trillion dollars in value +.

In 2007 the investment return by collective government on those domestic and "International" investments was about 5.4 trillion dollars (China investments "in China" giving some of the best returns) with never a mention or even a cognitive though generated in the population's mind by any government representative; political party; media talking head; or controlled education per this issue due to the money and control involved.

The symbiotic relationship between the aforementioned over the last several decades is firmly in place and stringently managed for not a mention that would generate a cognitive thought of the "basics" involved here, and again done so by them "due to the massive money and control involved"

TREASON: "Treason doth never prosper; what's the reason? For if it prosper, none dare call it treason." Sir John Harrington, 1561-1612

As of this week I have moved forward getting sponsorship with the intent of taking an extended trip to Washington, DC. Starting as the first step to make a 1-hour presentation before the US Senate during open session per implementing the TRF management principle to phase out and then eliminate all taxation.

I wonder if Ron Paul while I am in DC can get me 1-hour before the House during open session to make the same presentation? If yes great, if no, why not? While there I will try to brief as many individuals; committees; and interested parties as possible.

Anyone who is interested in sponsoring this trip to DC for Walter Burien - CAFR1, as of 01/25/13, I have put up a sponsorship link towards the top of the front page. I am looking to raise $40,000 by 02/15/13 and then I will move on the trip. The funds are 20K for the trip and 20K for carry through upon return.

I am ready to make the path towards ending all taxation become a reality, are you?

Please visit the website when you get a chance and if you decide to become a sponsor for the CAFR1 DC trip, I thank you in advance for your assistance in this matter.

Truly yours,

We have a problem underlying our CAFR problem.

Perhaps if we do the Math and replace the $FRN ratio with a Gold ratio or price.



If we are counting our Gold, things don't look so good for CAFR investments.

GDP The GDP has lost 75% of it's imagined value in Gold.

There is a strong case to be made that the CAFRs have been grossly mismanaged. At least since the Clinton bubble burst.

This is a great place to start working locally.

Thanks Twain & Day, as always.

Free includes debt-free!

When using a measure to measure, folk expect a right measure!

I agree. As more become aware about what you noticed, their will be once again what is referred to in literature as "a great awakening."

When using Federal Reserve Notes to denominate a value, I expect whatever the market will bear. And a tax to follow.

Our Constitution makes strict reference to a system of weights & measures. Even a lowly pawn shop will sell a proper measure... a ruler, yardstick or measuring tape. A scale. A meter.

Why must we suffer monopoly-money? A confidence racket? A faith based "legal tender?" "Backed by the full faith & credit of the United States government."

To borrow Money on the credit of the United States

"Backed by the full faith & credit of the United States government."

One thing I learned from that Still argument today...the defect in the constitution is that the government has given itself the right to borrow money.
Section. 8.

The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;

To borrow Money on the credit of the United States;

I hear a lot about ending the Fed and IRS, but I do not hear much about revoking the right of the Federal Government to borrow money.

For some reason, I want to know what IS right, if there is such a thing. Perhaps it is all subjective? Perhaps it does not matter because we will never have the power to extricate ourselves from the Pirates. Perhaps one should just make hay?


Leviticus 25, then James 5. Magna Carta, circa 1215.

Leviticus 25, then James 5.
Every 7 years, lie fallow. Every 7 x 7 = 49 Jubilee.

1914 Federal Reserve Act permitted them to print promissory notes
__98 Years. 49 x 2 = 2 Jubilees.

Lend your ear to the history told & retold in the Bible.
Then read the Magna Carta, circa 1215 for an update.

Note references to debt. Hard to get around in this world w/o it. Try as you might to avoid it, many want you to feel obligated to them. They are practiced in the art of deception.

Thank you Mark Twain,

for reminding me that the struggle is ancient and that God had a plan for equity. I would imagine the missed jubilees have compounded the trouble many times over which is why we are at a boiling point now as was in 1215. I read the Magna Carte last week and refreshed again this week. It strikes me that Jews were specifically called out in the loan repayment clauses.

Thank you for the reminder from James 5:

1 Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you. 2 Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten. 3 Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eatyour flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days. 4 Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped downyour fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth. 5 Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter. 6 Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you.7 Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold , the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain. 8 Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.
2 Corinthians 13:11
Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.


Twas a pleasure.

    "As dry [paper] that before the wild hurricane fly,
    When [debt] meets with an obstacle, mount to the sky.
    So up to [house-mortgage] top, coursers they flew,
    With the [banks] full of Toys, and [Ben Bernanke] too."

History we relieve each generation. Pass along my regards to your husband, for he too has a tough row to hoe.

Likewise, Sir

I asked that man of mine if he had a tough row to hoe...and he said he didn't know what that was...he is a city boy...and yet very patient as he hoes.
I imagine since I am so vocal and he is a Baptist Pastor that if we do not see Liberty, and "they" begin rounding people up at 3am, we may be some of the first to go. It is the row the children will hoe that concerns me.
And then, in a twinkling, I [saw over] the roof
The prancing and [dancing] of each little hoof.
As I drew in my [breath], and was turning around,
[Across] the [Eastern Sky] came [Jesus] with a [Trumpet's Sound].

If its possible

he is saying at the end, we can and should end taxes and have limited government run on just the returns on the secret investments the "corporations" make with themselves (As all governments are really just corporations). Do i have that Right?

~Good Night, And Good Luck~

$1 tax + $2 investment = $3 revenue. If so, tax could stop.

He offers his summary finding that for every current $1 of tax received, he found $2 revenue from investment. He suggests current income streams from investment could cover the cost of running government as is. He feels government is in areas way beyond providing service to taxpayers. Those endeavors should not be governments business. Close the divide: budget vs CAFR. Audit the book; tell the public.

He is calling for individual tax payers to return to our rightful oversight positions. Stop blind faith in man's governing. Budgets are currently used for propaganda. The CAFR is used to manage accounts. Audit the books. Audit the CAFR.

Jerry Day runs a media company near Hollywood. His popular video work includes:

  • Ron Paul.
  • The media caught cheating about Ron Paul popularity.
  • Smart meter: illegal search, & spying.
  • Recently, this Public Budget vs Consolidated Financial Report (CAFR)

He is trying valiantly to tell "We the People" we must watch over the books. Reduce governmental overruns (over taxing; over reaching). We must take oversight upon ourselves.

Clayton Co GA Citizen's Oversight reviewing CAFR!

Don't know if you have had a chance to see this 5 minute clip: (DP link is posted below in a reply to myself), but it seems to me these guys are an example of exactly how to do what needs to be done. Looks like these brave people of Clayton County GA, have created their own oversight board to review their county's CAFR on an ongoing basis and have addressed their commissioners saying so. Appears this started in August of this year. Wonder how they are progressing...

Decided to check myself...Youtube search: Clayton County Citizens Oversight gives 5 videos from Carl Swensson, the latest being 9/18/12 and it appears that they are bringing a couple of serious charges forward to the DA.

It looks like they are doing the hard word of digging to recover their county treasure.

Exactly! Thank you very much.

Hope that your county doesn't find serious crime. Misspending the public purse oft becomes criminal. Try to give oversight before the destination is the county jail... Or worse, the statehouse (3) (a term used interchangeably referring to a lowly jail, prison, or dungeon; somewhat comically confused with a state (2) capitol building.).

Spending other folk's money is such fun & frolick (1), it is easy to get carried away

Glossary: Webster's 1828 edition.
(1) FROL'ICK, v.i. To play wild pranks; to play tricks of levity, mirth and gaiety.

(2) STATE, n. 5. A political body, or body politic; the whole body of people united under one government, whatever may be the form of the government. - Thus when we say, the state has made provision for the paupers, the word has reference to the government or legislature; but when we say, the state is taxed to support paupers, the word refers to the whole people or community.

(3) STATEHOUSE, n A state prison. Sent up up the river (to the Sing Sing, NY State Prison)

(4) STATEHOUSE, n ; A state capitol building

Uh, It seems I have fallen in a mine shaft

It seems this guy here: Bill Still

Has determined that the Gold Standard is a Lie and has routed out that dasterely Pirate Morgan...says Von Mises was funded by the Rockefellers... further says...

"Gold money is the ultimate centralization of the money power. Yes, it IS sound money. The quantity is easily controlled, but it does not democratize the money power to operate to the benefit of we, the people. It centralizes it into the hands of those few best able to buy up the commodity serving as the monetary base -- gold. This would, in fact, be the bankers."

I was somewhat concerned that I might be lynched if I were to reply with this information on that Fine Gold Post.

Mr. Twain, it certainly is hard to tell who exactly are the Pirates these days.


Dear Ms Bear, Falling in the mine shaft was the easy part.

Hold on. I hear ya. I'll send down a rope tied to the harness of my Retriever. He is trained. He knows the way.

Bill Still is familiar to me. As are the arguments pro & con. Many at DailyPaul have vociferous arguments about what he espouses. I don't. I am clear & certain about my position. Harken back to Tevye, the father in the musical, "Fiddler on the Roof." You will remember the scene where folk in the village commence to argue w/o end.

"You can't close your eyes to what's happening in the world."

Tevye: "He is right."

Third Party: "He's right and he's right? They can't both be right."

Tevye: "And you too are right." [Wink.]

When all is said & done, I buy according to my means & needs. I sell for value. What is left over after the taxman cometh, is in my family & friends. My business. My credit union.

My frivolities are limited to coffee & travel. I have one staircase going up or down & 5¢ cigars in the glass cupboard just for show.

If I Were a Rich Man Fiddler on the Roof Best High School Version 4/29/2008 Asa Ames plays Tevya in Fiddler on the Roof.

Enjoyed the movie on my way out!

Why howdy Mr. Twain,

You know bout dem der CAFR's do ye. I'll be doin me duty an a check'n yer links. I think de Pirates use dem CAFR's, I do. Haven't quite gotten de nerve ta ask bout em round here locally.

I like the action in this
