Let's rename it the "Military Financial Complex"

I was re-reading an old post where Tony M said: "I don't believe Eisenhower's farewell address on the military industrial complex was a warning. I believe he was stating that they already were in control." http://www.dailypaul.com/272266#comment-2929969

This got me thinking:"I get why 'Military' and 'Industrial,' But why leave out the financial part of the equation?" After all, it's the elite bankers and their struggle to take over the money supply through central banks, and all that that implies, that is the tap root of the poisonous tree which bares all evils we live with.

I think that we should call it the "Military Financial Complex" because the international Bankers finance the wars, and all the machinery used on both sides, to profit from them at our expense - both internationally and domestically.

I have been wont to say for some time now that government has no money, but it does have police power. And corporations have money, but no police power. Isn't it obvious then that the two would become lovers in a deviant and unholy fascist romance?

Evil sums it up lest we forget "congressional " military

Industrial complex was Eisenhower 's term before his speach
was edited .

Aaron Russo, Nikola Tesla, Ron Paul, I'm jus' sayin'

I wouldn't shed a tear

if some 'psycho' sniper started taking out bankers.

I think after the first 3 or 4 kills bankers would re-access their goals.

$37 Trillion Official Title Record of Ownership Lost!

Storm Sandy cast wrath on 55 Water Street, NY. Securities vault? $37 Trillion? Submitted by Mark Twain, 12/02/2012

Trillions of dollars worth of stock certificates and other paper securities that were stored in a vault in lower Manhattan may have suffered water damage from Superstorm Sandy.

The Depository Trust & Clearing Corp., an industry-run clearing house for Wall Street, said the contents of its vault “are likely damaged,” after its building at 55 Water Street “sustained significant water damage” from the storm that battered New York City’s financial district earlier this week.

The vault contains certificates registered to Cede & Co., a subsidiary of DTCC, as well as “custody certificates” in sealed envelopes that belong to clients.

The DTCC provides “custody and asset servicing” for more than 3.6 million securities worth an estimated $36.5 trillion, according to its website.

“At this point, it is premature to make an accurate assessment as to the full impact of the water damage nor would it be helpful to project on what specific actions need to be taken with respect to our vault,” said DTCC Chief Executive Michael Bodson in a statement. “We are aggressively working on this situation to minimize disruption to our clients and will provide additional updates as more information becomes available.”

Oh, what's this? An unclaimed

Oh, what's this? An unclaimed security certificate? How many more? I guess nobody will notice if I just stick afew here in my pocket. Maybe I'll come back later with some friends.

MapVillage Divers Get diving equipment at SCUBA shop. Then go to the basement under 55 Water Street. It is the tall building. Happy hunting ($37 trillion flood damage; insurance not settled).

Yep

How about

"Military Financial Empire"?

It's because banks are mere tools

The whole "...foreign offshore banks are behind it all" and "...all wars are banker wars" BS are examples of simpleton assertions from NWO Change Agents. Only gullibility sustains such disinformation.

Banksters control nothing. They are mere tools for the MIC, which itself is a mere tool for those who pretend to have dragon blood coursing through their veins.

I'm intregued

Tell me more about MIC. What is it?

BTW, I agree that Banks and other institutions are merely tools for those that control them and their masters. I think that the focus here was just on the entities and mechanisms that are actually acting directly upon the populace.

Boy, that's a tough one

It's complex. Get it? Ha, dumb joke.

I think I comprehend what you're getting at. I contend that banks are more opportunist financiers than mastermind financiers. I suppose it's a matter of "...so who is on which end of the leash?"

A lot of the banksters have direct influence upon the populace. So do a lot of industrial concerns (e.g. Boeing, Mitsubishi, Daimler, etc.). I think a significant difference is in the very structure of production. Banks don't need to rely on much of a supply chain before they can offer retail crap to consumers (especially when specie is 86'd). Companies like Boeing, though, can't do their MIC thing without a whole bunch of previous stuff being manufactured first (or mined or whatever).

They are more complex processes, like "I, Pencil" suggests (apologies if you're unfamiliar with that reference). Banksters play their role, for sure, but my opinion is that they don't deserve a share of the marquee billing.

Perhaps "Military Industrial Financial Pharmaceutical Constitutional Complex" is better. Or maybe just "Mystery School."

Kudos to the Mystery School.

Never said there was only one flank of attack. :-)

BTW, Completely spaced on MIC... Duh! ;-)

Funny, I can think of it only as an acronym

I think it's a legacy of growing up and listening to "MIC" by Husker Du.
