The Powers That Be

Deborah Venable



He that would rule others would also sell his soul for the power to rule.  For what reward comes from ruling over other human souls that could be endured by a moral person with his virtuous soul intact?  Those who choose to eat from the tree of knowledge soon find that the fruit has a very bitter taste.  It also sours the stomach and overwhelms the senses.  The knowledge I’m speaking of is, of course, that which exposes those aforementioned soulless individuals with power.


Elite - Definition number 3 in the Random House College Dictionary – First Edition (unabridged) Copyright 1982 – “a group of persons exercising the major share of authority or control within a larger organization; the power elite in the U.S.”  Some dictionaries are not quite so “on the money” with their definitions.  They choose to stop at some form of “the best” to define the word elite.  That would be an abortion of the truth in this case, unless we can say, the best at accumulating and holding wealth, or the best at deceiving, or the best at destroying moral men’s souls. 


The “bitter taste” and “sour stomach” plagues me each and every day.  Fortunately, the natural antidote for the poisoning from the fruit of knowledge exists in each and every freedom-loving individual’s spirit – zeal for the beauty and value of human life and the blessings bestowed on us all.  Contained in that zeal also is the determination to fight the evil that surrounds us.  That is what I hope to reach – the determination to fight the evil you will learn about. 


First, you must know that world events have been driven by more than just chance for a very long time.  They have been and are being driven by a quest for the control/power to rule over all human souls, and secured by authority, power and control over all the world’s wealth.  Money.  It all comes down to money – no matter how you slice it. 


“History records that the money-changers have used every form of abuse,
intrigue, deceit, and violent plans possible to maintain their control
over governments by controlling money, and its issuance.”
       - James Madison


America’s Founding Fathers were unique in their knowledge, in their zeal, and in their dedication to carve out a better life for their progeny.  Anyone who disputes this has not spent sufficient time “eating the fruit” or understanding human history.


“The modern theory of the perpetuation of debt has drenched the earth with
blood, and crushes its inhabitants under burdens ever accumulating. If the
American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their
currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks. . . will
deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the
continent their fathers conquered. . . the issuing power should be taken
from the banks, and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.”
         - Thomas Jefferson


If only we had listened.  Anyone who thinks the banks do not control the wealth of the world is not aware of the origin of those banks.  Try to find that origin.  I challenge you!  Seek and you will find that banks take their marching orders from the number 3 definition of elites. 


Two families – the Rockefellers of America and the Rothschild’s of Europe – have an estimated worth of over one hundred and eleven trillion dollars.  That’s right, I said trillion.  To put this in perspective, somewhat, consider that the National Debt of the United States currently sits at somewhere over six trillion dollars.  That’s all – six trillion dollars.  How many Americans are concerned with the National Debt?  How many realize that because of the National Debt your personal monetary worth is meaningless – even if it is on the positive side?  Believe me, if the National Debt were ever “called in,” you would be considered a co-signer, my friend!


“I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me, and causes me to tremble for the safety of our country. Corporations have been enthroned, an era of corruption will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people, until the wealth is aggregated in a few hands, and the republic is destroyed. The Government should create, issue, and circulate all the currency, and credits needed to satisfy the spending power of the Government, and the buying power of consumers.


By the adoption of these principals, the taxpayers will be saving immense sums of interest. Money will cease to be master, and become the servant of humanity.”
         - Abraham Lincoln


Whatever else he might have been, Abraham Lincoln was a very wise man.  History has not always done him justice with truth, but the telling does not reduce his obvious concerns for the future.  Whether or not he would have “pledged” with the Founders or absconded with the traitors cannot be known today.  He did not live in their time, but his enlightenment about the financial future was none-the-less accurate.


“No man is good enough to govern another man without that other's consent.
 . . . These United States of America can never be destroyed from forces
outside its borders. If America falls, it will fall from within. Brought
down by apathy.

When good people do nothing, Anarchy reigns.”
             - Abraham Lincoln in a 1854 letter to Congress


So, the thought that America should be immune from problems of economic poverty, given her vast wealth, would be sound in principle but incorrect in reality.  America ceased to be in control of her own destiny when she became overrun with apathetic citizens that did not tend the torch of freedom.  And it all comes down to money – no matter how you slice it.


“The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is perhaps the most astonishing piece of slight of hand ever invented.  Banking was conceived in iniquity, and born in sin. Bankers own the earth.  Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create money, and with the flick of a pen, they will create enough money to buy it back again.  Take this great power away from them, and all great fortunes like mine will disappear. And, they ought to disappear, for then this would be a better and happier world to live in. But if you want to continue to be the slaves of the bankers, and pay the cost of your own slavery, then let bankers continue to create money, and control credit.”
               - Sir John Stamp (former governor of the Bank of England)

This is but the center piece of the puzzle, folks, but every other piece fits into it.  The power elites have traded their souls for that power, and continue to do so.  It is impossible to attain power in government today without trading away that which would make you a trustworthy leader of a self-governing society.  It is impossible to remain a credible part of the media complex without a nod from the financial/power elites.  It is impossible to attain an “official” status within the academic world without a sanction from these powers that be.  The tentacles of their power have invaded every industry, every religion, every philosophy and every known form of human intelligence and expression.  Those tentacles serve as the strings for the puppet show we see as “world events.”


Yes – it is that bad.
