Descrizione

In the 21st century, Americans get all the democracy money can buy - but the elite can afford more than their fair share.

Bill Sanders, Executive Director of GreenPlanet International, described as 'A New Breed of Environmentalist' by Time Magazine, discovers the government is using corrupt computer models to calculate human impact and climate change. Sanders reaches out to an old acquaintance turned eco-terrorist, known only as 'War-Pig', to help figure out why. Incredibly, they piece together evidence of a global conspiracy of unimaginable proportions.

When Sanders is found brutally murdered, War-Pig goes after the secret cabal of uber-elite who have spent the better part of the last three generations developing a plan to unleash a virus and reduce the global population by roughly six billion people and enslave the rest. War-Pig infiltrates the cabal, drawing purpose and strength from the least likely of sources, including a Korean war Medal of Honor recipient and the tragically flawed President of the United States, to stop the 1% from deconstructing society and appointing themselves as the 'governing' class.

Kratocracy:

(from the Greek κρατερός - krateros, meaning strong)

According to Montague, Kratocracy is defined as Government by those who are strong enough to seize power through force or cunning.

In a Kratocracy, the primary order of business expected of every person is to understand who it is one stands under, and follow rank accordingly.

INTRO

21 Days Ago

THE whole damn thing was a lie!

I know. I can smell a lie a mile away. How? Well, because I'm a consummate liar, that’s how. I've told big lies, small lies, lies of omission, lies to gain and lies because of loss. From the little white lies you tell your girlfriend to the great big black lies that scar your soul. I've told them all.

But this lie almost got past me. It's like some kind of 'uber-lie'. Technically, it's more like a thousand little lies woven together to form a sort of lie tapestry if that makes any sense. The weird part is I understand their reasons for doing it. But that doesn't mean I like it.

It's sort of ironic, really. The one person who figures this thing out is the guy who has told enough lies on his own that if I went public, I would only be blowing my own cover. Why would I do that? Everything I've done, and the life I managed to build for myself, would be destroyed for nothing because most folks wouldn't believe a word of what I said anyway. Even though I'm really just trying to tell the truth.

But if I decide to go public with what I know you can bet 'They' will start looking for something to discredit me with. It's what I would do. And there is more than enough sitting out there, just under the surface, to make me look like a crackpot. A full blown, tin-foil hat wearing, conspiracy nut-bag of the first degree. But 'They' don't know me. The real me anyway. And that gives me a little breathing room. For now.

The first rule of Lie Club is; if someone is coming to out you, then go on record first. Do it on your terms and try to control the narrative. It's the only way you can hang on to even a shred of credibility. And even that's not guaranteed. But it's all I have to hold on to.

So, the first thing I'm going to do is connect the dots by creating some sort of record of everything that has happened up to this point. That way, if I have an 'accident' or something, at least there will be some proof of what I'm saying. Not that anyone will ever believe it.

God! I sound paranoid...

OK, first things first. I need to give whoever reads this a bit of background on me;

So - who am I? Now, that's an interesting question. I've been playing a role for so long I'm not sure I know the answer anymore. I CAN tell you what I'm not... I'm not a threat. I'm not an asshole. I'm not a criminal, technically. But, I'm probably not the guy anyone would put in charge of looking for the truth. I'm not the candidate you would vote for to be your 'Moral compass'. And I'm seriously nobody's first choice to be the one who discovered all of this.

If I were asked to pick one word to described myself it would be; 'Opportunivore'. Now, I don't mean the classic definition you find online in the 'Urban Dictionary'. That's way to hippie-dippy, peace, love and granola for me. My definition is a little darker;

Opportunivore (oppor-tunə'nə-vôr') n.

a person who adapts his/her actions, responses, etc., by taking aggressively ambitious chances at social, personal or professional opportunities in order to gain acceptance, admiration, control, economic growth, or even self-esteem.

a person that feeds chiefly on the beliefs of others.

Yeah, OK. So I've obviously put some thought into this. But not until recently. You see, I put all of 'Them' in the same category as me. 'They' are simply another group of Alpha's looking to seize any opportunity that will further our goals.

But not all opportunivore's are created equal. These guys are WAY out of my league. If opportunivore's were actual dinosaurs, then 'They' would be the T-Rex's -- the king of the food chain.

I would be one of those little leaf eating guys who hangs out in the shadows trying not to get stepped on. Don't get me wrong, I'm dangerous. I mean, after all, I am still a dinosaur.

These guys though, they’re just amazing. 'They' sought out, or conspired to create, opportunities that I would never have dreamed possible. The sheer massive scale of their deceptions is truly mind blowing. That's why most people think what they're doing is impossible.

Anyone who suspects even one small aspect of 'The Lie' ends up being labeled as a conspiracy nut, or whack job, when they try to tell anyone what they've stumbled upon. Even when a person hears about this from somebody they know well and deeply respect they end up dismissing the evidence and writing it off as just one of those things. A quirk. I recently learned there is a name for this. It's called cognitive dissonance. That's when a concept is just too big for the brain to deal with, so it doesn't. I wish my brain worked that way.

One of the points I should make is that opportunivore's usually run in packs. Even I have a few close associates. But this group was started a long time ago and has been pushing their agenda patiently for many years. This plan of theirs has been in the works for at least a couple of generations, but I'll explain more about that in a bit.

At this point you're probably saying to yourself What the hell are you talking about? Who are 'They' and what are you accusing them of? Good questions. One's I would be asking myself. All I can say right now is this; I need to bring you up to speed on a couple of things first. Give you some context by which to judge the information I'm sharing. A historical perspective, so to speak.

To do this I need to take you back to shortly after the start of the last century in order to understand the thinking of those opportunivore's behind this grand conspiracy. Let's start in 1913.

1913 was a busy year in America. In New York both the Grand Central Terminal and the tallest structure in the world at the time, the Woolworth Building opened for business. Hollywood released The Squaw Man, its first feature film. George Bernard Shaw published his epic Pygmalion. The Ford Motor Company introduced the first moving assembly line and Death Valley CA recorded the highest temperature in the world of 134 degrees Fahrenheit.

A few interesting births happen in 1913 also. These include two future heads of the CIA; William Casey and Richard Helms. Two future presidents; Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford. And one person that I find particularly relevant; future whistle-blower W. Mark Felt. Felt was a Deputy Director of the FBI but is probably better known as the infamous Deep- Throat. The source of information that was critical to the Washington Post's Watergate investigation which ultimately brought Nixon down.

In March of that year Woodrow Wilson became the 28th president of the United States. Included in the work of the nation he would sign three important pieces of legislation into law; the 16th Amendment which created the IRS to tax American income. The 17th Amendment which changed how the Senate was elected. And the Federal Reserve Act which created a Central Bank in the U.S. for the first time in 75 years.

So, remember how I said these people were patient? This date proves my point. One group in the Lie Club has actually been working to achieve their goal since around 1833. That is the year Andrew Jackson, having vetoed the re-charter of the Second Bank of the United States, began withdrawing the deposits of the Federal Government and placing the money in state chartered banks. This quickly caused the former central bank to fail and it eventually closed its doors in 1841.

Nicholas Biddle, president of this bank, became angry and bitter as he watched his fortunes begin to dwindle. His legacy is one of distrust and hatred of the democratic process due to his belief that the failure to re-charter his bank showed definitively that the people of this country could not be trusted to make intelligent choices. He believed the masses were guided by emotions rather than logic. Biddle began to rant to his contemporaries about what he called the herd mentality of the American public. Biddle was an influential man, and a few of the wealthy men who knew him agreed with what he was saying.

Over the next sixty years a small group of the wealthy elite in America began to openly distrust the idea of democracy and advocate various different types of change within our system of government. These beliefs would eventually spur a handful of elite families to begin maneuvering behind the scenes in order to achieve this goal.

The elite, for our purposes, is used to reference a small group of wealthy men, and their descendants, known by the turn of the 20th century as the 'Money Trust'.

Most notable amongst them were the Rothschild's, the Morgan's, the Vanderbilt's, the Carnegie's, the Rockefeller's and the Warburg's -- especially Paul Warburg.

So, you can see that 1913 wasn't the beginning of the Lie, but the year is important because it is when those first few building blocks of the Lie were achieved.

The first block put in place was the 16th amendment. Most Americans believe that the IRS was created to tax the personal income of Americans in order to pay the bills of the nation -- and that is a big part of the Lie. Its true main purpose is to act as a smokescreen.

A permanent federal income tax was established the same year that the Federal Reserve was created. This was not coincidence. In order to pay for the government debt that a central bank creates, a federal income tax was considered necessary. The whole concept is just a mechanism to transfer wealth from the pockets of the citizens to the federal government and then from the federal government to the bankers.

For the first half of the 20th century the effective tax rates on the wealthy in this country were set at an unbelievable 50% to 90%. Now, do you think anyone ever paid this amount? No. Not a chance.

Why? The tax code is why. The reason our tax code is so ridiculously confusing is completely intentional. If you create a system of taxation regulated by a confusing tax code then people will find it frustrating and believe it must be even more confusing for those who have a lot of money. The trick is to convince the public that the wealthy pay a much higher percentage than the average American does. This way the field will appear level and everyone will be happy. So long as no one figures out there are tricks built into the code.

No one ever paid 90% of their income in taxes. NO ONE! Can you imagine giving up that much of your money? No. And neither could the elite. That’s why you can be sure the whole thing is a deception.

It's also why the tax code has only gotten more convoluted as time went by instead of clearer and simpler as one might expect. Over the years, new and better loop holes must get incorporated into the tax code so the elite can keep the majority of the money they make.

A study under Ronald Reagan in the late 1980's suggested that the revenue brought in by the government from taxes on personal income did not go to fund programs or entitlements as everyone assumes. Instead, it went to servicing the debt we have incurred to the next building block in the Lie; the Federal Reserve Central Bank.

The purpose of a central bank is a) the physical creation of a nation’s currency, b) to provide stability to that nation’s financial system by expanding and contracting the amount of currency available, c) establish interest rates, and d) work with congress to set the monetary policy of the country.

A privately owned central bank, having the monopoly to create a nations currency, by its structure and definition, controls that nation through its debt.

Each dollar that a central bank creates is loaned to the government - at interest. Since the bank does not create the interest amount at the same time it creates the money that is loaned, the government will never have enough currency to completely re-pay the debt. So, after enough time has passed, and the currency is gradually debased through inflation, the government will only be able to service its debt to the bank by making payments against the interest, not the principle.

Look at an actual piece of paper currency. You will see the words Federal Reserve Note on the top. It's important to understand that in the financial world a ‘Note’ is a term used to describe an instrument of debt.

The central banking system virtually enslaved this country to a few private bankers. Remember, these were patient men, and over the decades, they modified the original structure of the system from a 'public/private' entity to a 'private/public' one. The changes were subtle, but effective. Control of the currency and the money policy of this country shifted from congress to a handful of private bankers. Remember, our Federal Reserve is no more a part of our federal government than Federal Express.

This control not only ensured that these men were running the system; it also guaranteed that politicians in the future would need to seek the support of these bankers in order to finance their Campaigns -- as soon as they made money the number one factor in winning elections.

Think of it this way; if the Federal Reserve was created to provide stability to the nation's banking system, then why did we have the worst financial crisis in our history just 15 years after it took control of the currency? Think about that for a minute before we go down that rabbit hole.

For now, consider that after the crash, a staggering 10,000 banks, and even more corporations in this country, failed. This handful of bankers were then able to purchase these institutions for literally pennies on the dollar. Increasing their wealth, influence and political stature enormously. But their actions didn't go unnoticed.

Shortly after the crash, Louis McFadden, Chairman of the House Banking Committee, declared: … It was not accidental. It was a carefully contrived occurrence... The international bankers sought to bring about a condition of despair here so that they might emerge as rulers of us all.

But don't just take McFadden's word on it. Here is what Woodrow Wilson had to say about the central banking system later in his life:

(Our) great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is privately concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men who, even if their action be honest and intended for the public interest, are necessarily concentrated upon the great undertakings in which their own money is involved and who necessarily, by very reason of their own limitations, chill and check and destroy genuine economic freedom.

We have restricted credit, we have restricted opportunity, we have controlled development, and we have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated, governments in the civilized world – no longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and the duress of small groups of dominant men.

Pretty powerful words, right? Especially since they were spoken by the man who signed the act into law.

Henry Ford, one of the greatest entrepreneurs of that era also commented:

It is well that the people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.

I could provide literally hundreds of quotes along these lines. But I don't necessarily consider the opinions of celebrities or politicians when I engage in critical thinking. I look for facts. Lacking those I look for clues or try to spot trends that support a particular point of view.

For instance, when I began looking into this, I noticed something I found disturbing. Look at our currency. Besides the fact there are literally clues all over it, consider this; after reading about central banks all the way back the founding of this country, I think it more than just a coincidence that the presidents or founding fathers who opposed the concept of a central bank the loudest are the ones whose portraits now adorn our Federal Reserve Notes - Washington, Jefferson, Franklin, Hamilton, Lincoln, Grant, Eisenhower and Kennedy - They all publicly went on record in outspoken opposition to the concept and acceptance of a central bank in the United States. Putting them on these notes could be seen as a way of trying to negate their public statements on this subject, or at the very least, rubbing their nose in the fact that the Federal Reserve won the battle. Either way, I'm sure they are rolling over in their graves today.

Now, regardless of all the information I just gave you, this is the bottom line: From the time that the Federal Reserve was created until now, the U.S. dollar has lost 98 percent of its value. Just from the time that President Nixon took us off the gold standard in 1973, the U.S. dollar has lost 83 percent of its value.

By any measure, I'm pretty sure that makes the Federal Reserve a failure in its stated purpose of maintaining a stable financial system.

So, this leads me to the final building block these men achieved back in 1913; the passage and ratification of the 17th Amendment to the Constitution.

Most people have no idea the ramifications this change has had on our system of government. The 17th called for the direct election of the Senate by popular vote. Before the 17th Amendment senators were elected by the individual state legislatures. Not the people.

The Founding Fathers, in one of its better compromises, wanted to ensure that the federal government contained representatives of each of its states and also to provide a body not dependent on popular support. One house that could afford to take a more detached view of issues coming before Congress.

However, over time, various aspects of these provisions led to a campaign to reform the way senators took office.

Critics of the Seventeenth Amendment claim that by altering the way senators are elected the states lost any representation they had in the federal government and that in addition to violating the unamendable state suffrage clause of Article V, this led to the gradual slide into ignominy of state legislatures as well as an over-extension of federal power. And (wait for it.....) the rise of Special Interest Groups to fill the power vacuum previously held by state legislatures.

As much as I am for the democratic process I have begun to side with these critics. You see, there is something our 1913 contemporaries didn't consider and that is The Law of Unintended Consequences. Yes. This change did allow the Federal government to surpass the states in power. Over the first half of the Twentieth Century with a popularly elected senate confirming judicial nominations, both Republican and Democratic, the Supreme Court began to apply the Bill of Rights to state law.

But the true impact of the 17th Amendment felt today is that it let senators 'off the hook'. These men were no longer answerable to their respective state law makers who were much more likely to keep an eye on whether or not they were doing their job than average citizens were. If a Senator was not keeping faith with their respective state's needs there was no doubt they would be replaced when their term was up. But not anymore.

So, since the masses didn't hold the Senate accountable and the state legislature no longer mattered to their re-election, the role of Senator began to change.

Senators began to think nationally instead of just about their home state. Many took on pet projects that had little if anything to do with state issues. And the votes they cast had less to do with what was important to their constituents and more about what they could get for it in trade. Votes became a commodity that held real value. And that value solved a new problem that came with the passage of the 17th Amendment; financing their campaigns.

The popular election process is much more expensive than the legislative election process. Senators needed to figure out where to find large amounts of money fast.

Money has always been a part of politics in America. Every politician knows they have to go out and mix with the people in order to get them to open their wallets or get their vote. For the Senate this was not something they enjoyed.

When the founding fathers wrote the constitution they thought of the senate as the leading men of their day. The Thinkers, the Businessmen and Land Owners. In other words the Rich.

Not the ordinary working class who toils and sweats for his pay that makes up the rank and file of the House of Representatives. For the giants of the senate to pander to the lower class asking for money was seen as being beneath their dignity. Of course, they could spend their own money on their campaigns. But what if they lost?

Enter the Special Interest Groups. Since the beginning of the republic we have had groups or individuals with a need to lobby for a specific agenda. Generally speaking these were wealthy individuals or cartels that had the stature necessary to get the attention of those in power and the money to sway their votes.

These Special Interest Lobbyists became the preferred source of campaign funds. And over the next 100 years they worked together to change the rules for the system to favor their cause. Back in 1913 probably the most powerful Special Interest Group in the country was known as the Money Trust.

It is the descendants of these men who are the opportunivore's that are trying to destroy this country today.

And me if they get the chance....

PART I

The Liars

March 25th

San Francisco, CA

BILL Sanders couldn't figure out what it all meant.

That, in and of itself, didn't make sense. He’d been staring at his computer for two days trying to figure out the problem. Day before yesterday he even went out and bought a brand new laptop with better software for the sole purpose of trying to piece this puzzle together.

Data discrepancies happen all the time. Interpretation and extrapolation of raw numbers can show all kinds of bad trends. A person's bias can even skew the results. But this just didn't compute. How could his numbers be so far off from the governments or the E.P.A.’s?

This wasn't Bill's first rodeo. At 35 years of age, Bill Sanders was the Executive Director of the world's largest non-profit environmental advocacy group, GreenPlanet International, for 6 years now. As far as he could tell, he was the youngest person to ever run such an agency, and he took his role very seriously. He became a quasi-celebrity overnight after accepting the job and enjoyed the notoriety his position brought him.

Bill was good looking, young, athletic, had a brilliant mind and solid grasp of the political nature of his position. His father spent his entire career as a low level diplomat in the State Department and Bill learned politics at his knee. His family moved a lot when Bill was growing up. His formative years were spent in places like Peru, Iceland, Kuwait and Indonesia. This gave him a great love for all the different flora and fauna around the world and an idea of just how inter-connected our planets eco-systems are.

He inherited his love of the outdoors from his mother. She was always taking him and his younger sister on camping trips or nature hikes wherever they lived. He learned from a very young age to enjoy different cultures and to deal well with change. His parents unknowingly raised a charismatic, ambitious young leader.

Confident, politically astute, sensitive to the needs and concerns of others he was his father's son; a natural born diplomat. He came into his own while attending New College in California. Bill was overwhelmingly voted class president because he was a consensus builder who found ways of bringing even the most divergent positions together on common ground. He understood instinctively that when it comes to industry and the environment neither side is going to get everything they want. What mattered most to him was regardless of the situation that reasonable and achievable goals were set, measurable progress was made, a balanced approach is taken and serious effort is made to minimize any impact to real living human beings.

This pissed off a lot of people on the extreme left. But it also got things done. He was well respected by key players from both sides of the debate and was able to get people on the phone no matter if he called Berkeley or DC. Time magazine called him The First of a New Breed of Environmentalist.

Bill spent most of his adult life working with different computer models trying to get better environmental data on everything from rainfall in the Amazon to wind shear across the Gobi. Lately, he was testing and tweaking a new algorithm he felt confident could index the potential impact of climate events on civilization. He was attempting to capture, by both direct observation and mathematical models, an array of data points such as ice melts, glacier retreat, temperature variations, species decline, extreme weather events, natural disasters, population growth and a list of other established parameters to calculate a probability index by which he could forecast catastrophic impacts to the planet. Two days ago he thought he was going to have to start over and almost scrapped all the code he'd written so far. Lucky for him he decided to check the math by hand.

It took all that first night and the whole next day to realize that the problem wasn't his program. That's when he decided to check the government’s algorithm. Environmentalists around the world create tools for their own use, just as he was doing for GreenPlanet. Most, if not all, of these independently created tools relied on a 'Universal Baseline Calculator’ supplied by the U.S. government.

This calculator is a key part of how risk is measure and factored into all the different models out there. The calculator program is considered proprietary software, so agencies outside the government did not have access to the source code. But Bill did. He cracked the encryption.

And that's where he discovered the problem. He went through the code line by line and began to realize what he was seeing did not indicate a simple error in programming. What he found was an intentional misrepresentation of the data. A 'mis- reporting' of just about everything from ice calving to fishing fleet hauls. But with specific variable processors so the data manipulation was disguised by creating non-linear fluctuations. It was obvious that this was done intentionally and to deceive. But why?

He rebuilt the calculator by removing the bad processors and adjusting the algorithm so it reflected the information that was generally agreed upon by those in the cause. That whole process took the better part of the following day. Then he set the parameters in his report writer and went out to get some food while the software compiled its data.

After he returned he sat down with the printout expecting to go through the report checking it for errors. But what he found made no sense.

No matter how risks are defined or quantified they are usually expressed as a probability of effects associated with a particular activity. Risk/probability is expressed as a fraction, without units, from 0 to 1.0. A probability of 1.0 indicates an absolute certainty that an event or outcome will occur in the future.

The scale normally looked like this;

But every category on his report was showing;

I need some sleep he said to the room and closed the lid to his new laptop. But sleep was a long time coming this night. He mind kept pouring over all the implications of the report. There must be an error in his program. He must have screwed up when he rebuilt the government's baseline calculator. Maybe the assumptions he plugged into the algorithm were wrong. Something!

The alternative - that the information on the report was real - was unimaginable. He would audit his work and run the report again when he had fresh eyes. Maybe he should just hand it over to Eric in the IT department to check out. Or maybe not. He wasn't sure what he had yet.

I really need some shut eye he whispered. But it was almost dawn before he finally drifted off to sleep.

March, 25th 9:25 am

New York, NY

Something was bothering him.

Clayton D. Warburg, the grandson of Paul Warburg, had been feeling uneasy all morning. It wasn't anything new. He’d been feeling like this more often than not lately and he could tell that it wasn't going away anytime soon. The people who worked for him recognized the 'look' and gave him a wide berth. It was days like today that started the rumor the initial ‘D’ in Clayton D. Warburg stood for ‘Dickhead’. Warburg didn't know about any of that. But if he had he wouldn't have cared. He lived off the uncomfortable feelings of others.

The intercom on his desk buzzed, momentarily jarring him out of his thoughts, followed by the tin sounding voice of his private secretary.

Mr. Warburg, I have Miles Daniels on the line from London. He says it's important. Do you have time for him?

Warburg was more than a little annoyed as he hit the button on the phone, Yeah. Put him through on the secure line.

He sat there for a couple of seconds while the call was transferred through security before being routed back to his office. It finally connected, Yeah, Daniels. I'm a little busy. What can I do for you?

Well, I should hope so, old man. But I think you shall want to take five minutes and hear what I have to say. Warburg sat silently, his nose crinkling slightly as he heard Daniels speak. He hated the condescending manner of the English and their use of language but Daniels was the closest thing he had to a friend. I dare say we have someone snooping around. Daniels finished.

"So what. There is ALWAYS someone snooping around." Warburg replied, now truly annoyed.

Well, Daniels took a deep breath This is a bit different. It's someone we know. He knew from the silence on the other end that he had Warburg's full attention now.

Who? Warburg said sitting up in his chair and adjusting the phone on his desk for no good reason.

William Sanders Daniels replied.

After a beat, Warburg nearly shouted Who the hell is William Sanders? He snatched the phone out of the cradle and pressed it to the side of his head.

You remember. We met him last year at the conference on global climate change in Lisbon? Daniels said slowly, On the first day at the mixer. I introduced you to the young man. He is the Executive Director of GreenPlanet. I think he prefers to be called 'Bill'.

'Oh Christ!' Warburg thought, 'That’s all we need.' The questions came out rapid fire, What was he looking at? What could he possibly know? Who has he been talking to?

Daniels let the questions trail off before he answered, "Well, I couldn't
