    Powerful banking interests, who had being trying for years, finally achieved their long term goal, of a silent Coup D'etat... by taking control of the American government. The first thing they did to accomplish their takeover was to convince Philanderer Knox, Secretary of State (under Woodrow Wilson, President) to lie to the American people. Say to them the 16th Amendment, Income Tex, had been legally ratified ("Deemed as Passed"), when it was not. The bankers knew... - Aaron Russo,

    The U.S. military has openly admitted to protecting Afghanistan poppy fields.


    Despite Niall Ferguson’s efforts in 2003 to partially rehabilitate British imperialism in his bestselling Empire
    the subject still provokes angry debate. The recent revelations concerning the Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s obliteration of archives dealing with British brutality in 1950s Africa and Malaya drew the Empire’s attackers and admirers into open combat. George Monbiot in the Guardian lambasted defenders of the imperial legacy, while Lawrence James in the Daily Mail argued that ‘the Empire was a dynamic force for the regeneration of the world’.

    The Opium Wars of 1839-42 and 1856-60 between Qing-dynasty China and Britain are a perfect case study of the international divergence of opinion that the Empire continues to generate. In China the conflicts – the first between it and a western nation – are a national wound: the start of a western conspiracy to destroy China with drugs and gunboats. In Britain the wars barely seem to register in public memory.

    It is perhaps in its attempt to provide a strong intellectual rationale for the Opium Wars that Leslie Marchant’s 2002 article most clearly shows its age. It begins with a discussion of the ideological differences between the two sides: the British attachment to free trade and progress jibing with the traditional Confucian bias against merchants and commerce. Many earlier western commentators tried to play down opium as the casus belli, asserting instead that a clash of economic and political cultures lay behind the conflicts. They sought a moral justification for wars that were essentially about protecting an illegal, profitable drugs trade.

    Bank of International Settlements (BIS): BIS is known to bankers & their governmental indentured servants (Congressman & their international counterparts) as the Central Bank of Central Banks. It is where central banks & governments come when they can no longer print infinite amounts of debt-based confidence money ("legal tender"). The BIS is purportedly the provider of last resort for those providers of last resort that are failing to provide. Think of it as where each infinite national currency must settle for another infinite national currency.

    Some think of the BIS as judge, jury & executioner of wayward bank cartels & their drunken bank stewards.

    Bank cartel charters grant central banks the privilege to fund themselves w/o limit. The BIS may be thought of as an international banker club where bankers gather legally & tenderly to defrock each other... in front of other bankers.

  • "Teapot Dome" scandal! Bribe the campaign. Roll 'em & Poll 'em.

    And throw 'em in the oven! A 1924 cartoon shows Washington officials fleeing in panic down an oil-slicked road to the White House, trying desperately to outpace the giant steamroller symbolizing the Teapot Dome scandal of President Warren G. Harding's administration.

    During Warren Harding's presidency, 1922, Interior Secretary Albert B. Fall accepted a bribe of over $404,000 from Mammoth Oil and Pan America Petroleum to to get the leasing rights to the oil reserves at Teapot Dome in Wyoming [The US Navy Oil Reserve]. Unfortunately for Fall, the press caught wind and he was exposed. Prior to Watergate this was considered “greatest and most sensational scandal in the history of American politics”.

    1922, Secretary of the Interior, Robert Fall leased drilling rights to the Teapot Dome Oil Reserves to Harry Sinclair’s Mammoth Oil Company, and the Elk Hills Reserve to Ed Doheney of the Pan American Petroleum Company. These agreements were no-bid contracts, and were incredibly generous to the oil companies, but an investigation indicated that the Generosity went both ways…as Fall Had received hundreds of thousands of dollars in kickbacks from the oil companies for the back-door deal. It all might have gone unnoticed, but Fall made some extravagant improvements to his lifestyle that he couldn’t possibly afford, even as a cabinet secretary…and an investigation unveiled some no-interest loans made to Fall…and it all came apart in one of the biggest government scandals in history…the biggest up to Watergate. So Big Oil involvement in Dirty Politics is by no means a new phenomenon…nor is it a new phenomenon to see highly placed government officials with their hands out to Big Oil. Teapot Dome was just the prototype of what was to come…and is still coming.

    Footnote: Mr Fall took the fall. The bribe payers skated. Big Oil got bigger & bolder.

    Footnote: The bribe receiver was prosecuted & served jail time. The bribers avoided convection for bribery; yet, one served brief jail time for having juror tracked around town. How is it the ones perpetrating the bribery skate?

  • Teapot Dome Scandal: Convict bribe receiver. Bribers skate free!

    Teapot Dome Scandal
    Written by The Editors of Encyclopedia Britannica, Last Updated 12-26-2013

    http://youtu.be/mzzybregmyA

    Teapot Dome Scandal, also called Oil Reserves Scandal or Elk Hills Scandal, in American history, scandal of the early 1920s surrounding the secret leasing of federal oil reserves by the secretary of the interior, Albert Bacon Fall. After President Warren G. Harding transferred supervision of the naval oil reserve lands from the navy to the Department of the Interior in 1921, Mr Fall secretly granted to Harry F. Sinclair of the Mammoth Oil Company exclusive rights to the Teapot Dome (Wyoming) reserves (April 7, 1922). He granted similar rights to Edward L. Doheny of Pan American Petroleum Company for the Elk Hills and Buena Vista Hills reserves in California (1921–22). In return for the leases, Fall received large cash gifts and no-interest “loans.”

    When the affair became known, Congress directed President Harding to cancel the leases; the Supreme Court declared the leases fraudulent and ruled illegal Harding’s transfer of authority to Fall. Although the president himself was not implicated in the transactions that had followed the transfer, the revelations of his associates’ misconduct took a severe toll on his health; disillusioned and exhausted, he died before the full extent of the wrongdoing had been determined. Mr Fall was convicted of accepting a bribe in the Elk Hills negotiations and imprisoned. Doheny and Sinclair were acquitted of charges of bribery and criminal conspiracy, but Sinclair spent 6 1/2 months in prison for contempt of court and contempt of the U.S. Senate. Although the secretary of the navy, Edwin Denby, had signed all the leases, he was cleared of all charges. While “Teapot Dome” entered the American political vocabulary as a synonym for governmental corruption, the scandal had little long-term effect on the Republican Party. Calvin Coolidge, a Republican, was elected president in 1924.

  • Glen Canyon Dam: Scourge of the Colorado River, 2008

    The Damn Glen Canyon Dam!

    There was a time when dams made a lot of sense. From the 1930′s through the 50′s the U.S. federal government commissioned hundreds of dams throughout the rivers of this hard land. Dams provided a clean, renewable form of power. They retained water for use in agricultural irrigation. It seemed like a win-win.

    As with many good ideas, this one was beaten to death. What began as a way to provide power and water to the people while providing jobs for then-unemployed workers petered out in the 1960′s a midst controversy. Dams do have negative environmental impacts. In the Colombia River gorge, salmon could no longer swim upstream to reach their spawning grounds. The US Corps of Engineers had to build salmon runs so the fish could get back to where they once belonged. In the Colorado River, so many dams were built that the river no longer reaches the Sea of Cortez. Sorry, Mexico! No clean water for you!
    The Glen Canyon dam was originally meant to be two dams constructed in Dinosaur National Monument. Pressure from environmental groups caused the government to rethink its plan, and a compromise was made. There would be one dam in northern Arizona.Before the dam, the Colorado River ran through Glen Canyon, carrying nutrient-rich silt downstream. It was a remote area, a series of crevices cut into the barren desert floor....

  • Putin may play his role as Grand Duke leading us to the Czar...

    Follow along with me a I present my published notes, The Innocents Abroad. Chapter 37 When they swagger around the stage in jeweled crowns and splendid robes, I shall feel bound to observe that all the Emperors that ever I was personally acquainted with wore the commonest sort of clothes, and did not swagger.
    37. CHAPTER XXXVII. (continued) Travelling with the Cossacks, whom lead our procession across Russia to met the Czar.
    The Grand Duke and his Duchess came out, and the presentation ceremonies were as simple as they had been at the Emperor's. In a few minutes, conversation was under way, as before. The Empress appeared in the verandah, and the little Grand Duchess came out into the crowd. They had beaten us there. In a few minutes, the Emperor came himself on horseback. It was very pleasant. You can appreciate it if you have ever visited royalty and felt occasionally that possibly you might be wearing out your welcome--though as a general thing, I believe, royalty is not scrupulous about discharging you when it is done with you.
    http://www.literaturepage.com/read.php?titleid=twain-innocen...

    The Grand Duke is the third brother of the Emperor, is about thirty-seven years old, perhaps, and is the princeliest figure in Russia. He is even taller than the Czar, as straight as an Indian, and bears himself like one of those gorgeous knights we read about in romances of the Crusades. He looks like a great-hearted fellow who would pitch an enemy into the river in a moment, and then jump in and risk his life fishing him out again. The stories they tell of him show him to be of a brave and generous nature. He must have been desirous of proving that Americans were welcome guests in the imperial palaces of Russia, because he rode all the way to Yalta and escorted our procession to the Emperor¹s himself, and kept his aids scurrying about, clearing the road and offering assistance wherever it could be needed. We were rather familiar with him then, because we did not know who he was. We recognized him now, and appreciated the friendly spirit that prompted him to do us a favor that any other Grand Duke in the world would have doubtless declined to do. He had plenty of servitors whom he could have sent, but he chose to attend to the matter himself.

    The Grand Duke was dressed in the handsome and showy uniform of a Cossack officer. The Grand Duchess had on a white alpaca robe, with the seams and gores trimmed with black barb lace, and a little gray hat with a feather of the same color. She is young, rather pretty modest and unpretending, and full of winning politeness.
