The “Beast” apparently lives at Wal-Mart

My Uncle often calls me to discuss the attacks to our Constitutional Foundation. Lately, we hardly ever run out of things to talk about. All the different facets of banking control, and how the Federal Reserve System has gotten us over a barrel, is one of the main sources of our frustration. The models we create around events as educated speculation are becoming more and more a part of reality. What was a “theory” a few years ago is “self-evident” today. With each outrageous executive order or banking power-grab the realness of what we are facing is becoming, well…more real.
I’m not sure if that made sense, but it is one thing to talk about troops being on the streets and believe that is coming…it is a totally different feeling and level of awareness to actually see the military drills being performed. Of all the crazy things we have talked about over the last couple of years one of the most surprising conversations occurred this weekend.
The Mark of the Beast has been a topic of religious/political discussion for decades. People have used the Bible to reference an apparent cashless society prophesied near the end times. To some it is a myth, a scare tactic; to others it is so far away it will never affect them. When credit cards became an everyday part of life the impossible looked a lot more realistic. A world in which all transactions were done through traceable computer executions was an obvious possibility. It is not unreasonable to imagine all commerce being tracked and controlled as part of a control grid, and if you were not part of that system then you couldn’t buy or sell.
“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:” “And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Revelations 13:16-17
As banks in Cyprus stole money from their account holders the past couple weeks, another piece in the “banking conspiracy theory” was not such a “theory” anymore. What if governments used excuses of economic uncertainty to support the banking cartel in obtaining almost complete control over the financial interests of the People? What if all transactions were completely tracked and cash was no longer used? What if banks or governments could take whatever they felt like from you and there was almost nothing you could do about it? Crazy? Consider the new bill being proposed in Canada.
Mirroring the political banking climate in the EU, Canada has introduced a bill that would mandate critical banking interests “bail-in” to an emergency procedure allowing them to take funds from private accounts at any time to make up for banking shortfalls. They are proposing that the recent Cyprus money-grabs and banking holidays become a blueprint for the future.
The following comes directly from pages 144 and 145 of “Economic Action Plan 2013.” It is being sold as a way to help the country without using “taxpayer funds”…
Canada’s large banks are a source of strength for the Canadian economy. Our large banks have become increasingly successful in international markets, creating jobs at home.
The Government also recognizes the need to manage the risks associated with systemically important banks — those banks whose distress or failure could cause a disruption to the financial system and, in turn, negative impacts on the economy. This requires strong prudential oversight and a robust set of options for resolving these institutions without the use of taxpayer funds, in the unlikely event that one becomes non-viable.
Ok…? For this article let’s put aside discussing what right government has in getting involved financially in bank failures and just look at the proposal more carefully. In black and white they are using the harmless, fun-sounding term “bail-in, to casually sink their hooks into your private funds.
The Government proposes to implement a “bail-in” regime for systemically important banks. This regime will be designed to ensure that, in the unlikely event that a systemically important bank depletes its capital, the bank can be recapitalized and returned to viability through the very rapid conversion of certain bank liabilities into regulatory capital. This will reduce risks for taxpayers. The Government will consult stakeholders on how best to implement a bail-in regime in Canada. Implementation timelines will allow for a smooth transition for affected institutions, investors and other market participants.
“Recapitalized and returned to viability?” What does all this mean? Let me break it down for you as succinctly as believe I can.
This is a nice way of saying; anytime the banks make bad decisions and lose money the government grants those same banks the power to steal money from you anytime they want.
Yeah, that’s about the whole of it. At what moment do the People start to believe that these bankers are going to take everything that is not tied down? With recent events it doesn’t stop with mere corruption and engineered mortgage crises’. They now have enlisted the complicit governments of the world to grab each citizen, turn them upside down, and shake till all the change falls out too.
You would have to be real short-sighted not to see the possibility of governments holding your bank accounts over your head to force compliance with policy. What if taxes were 75%, and when you refused to pay your account shut down? The potential ramifications are draconian and alarming. The unprecedented actions in Cyprus have set the stage for the next level of robbery and control.
The corporate takeover of legislation in America has been obvious for years. Corporations use the vast hoards of money they extract from the public to influence policy, (quite effectively, I might add) to further their agendas. The recent executive order granting immunity to the GMO giant Monsanto is yet another blatant example. The wishes and best interest of the People are routinely sacrificed at the altar of corporate interest. It is a concerted effort. What if corporate policy, acting outside of law, was used to shape behavior without legislation? Now, back to my Uncle.
He was house-sitting his daughter and son in-law’s place and watching their dogs this weekend when he made a trip to the local Wal-Mart just outside of Atlanta. It was a “Super Wal-Mart.” The kind with the food, TV’s, and garden tools all under one roof. The most successful attempt to provide everything to everybody in corporate history. He went to checkout along the massive line of check stands. To be quick he ducked into one of the self-checkout lanes. “No Cash Accepted.” He went to the next one…same thing. Perplexed at this point he went to talk to the lady in charge of the checkouts.
“Do these machines not take cash?” he asked.
“No they don’t,” was her reply.
Thinking this was an isolated incident he went toward another lane.
“Those don’t either,” she said before he could get much further.
A full on discussion ensued. He asked her several times so as to avoid all confusion. He was told that of the entire line of checkout stands, in the whole store, only four accepted cash. It was a surreal moment for him. All those “Mark of the Beast” discussions came to mind. He called me as soon as he got home. With everything I see going on I have to ask the questions…When will large corporations, such as Wal-Mart, refuse cash altogether? When will every transaction be part of an information grid? What if the government, or Wal-Mart, decides to shut off my purchasing privileges? Were all those prophecies from the book of Revelations my Grandmother warned about more than antiquated fear-mongering? Are we living in bizarre times or is it just me?
