...Pull The Plug




The rich are playing a different game than the poor...It's designed so that the top wins by default...

"Free Trade Destroys Indian Cloth Manufacturing"

Carey describes how in 1813, British ``free trade'' removed tariffs on cloth imported into India, ``but with the restriction on the export of machinery and artisans maintained in full force.'' Within twenty years, Indian cloth manufacturing was completely wiped out. ...

The British East India Company's Opium Monopoly

... The opium juice was processed into a form suitable for smoking, and formed into three pound cakes, which were then wrapped in poppy pedals. Forty of these cakes were loaded into chests, each stamped with the symbol of the East India Company.

In a completely transparent fraud of ``free trade,'' the Company then auctioned off these chests to ``country traders,'' (whom it pretended were independent), at roughly four times the cost of production. These traders were licensed by the Company, and in some cases financed by it. The Company would even give the ``country traders'' opium on consignment, and collect payment in Canton (Guangzhou) after the opium had been sold. ...

What the British Will Never Forget

... The first major shipment of opium, was arranged in 1781, by the Company's Governor-General, Warren Hastings, who described opium as a ``pernicious'' commodity, ``which the wisdom of the Government should carefully restrain from internal consumption.'' ...

... By 1804, the revenues from opium sales to China, were sufficient to cover the cost of tea, imported from China. Between 1804 and 1806, $7 million were transferred out of China. ...

... The opium trade increased from 4,244 chests in the 1820-21 season to 18,956 by 1830-31. By 1831, the opium trade into China was two-and-a-half times greater than the tea trade. It was probably the largest trade in a single commodity anywhere in the world. ...

William Jardine: "Iron-Headed Old Rat"

The largest of the ``country traders'' was Jardine, Matheson & Co. William Jardine and James Matheson formed a partnership in 1828. Matheson was the first to see the potential of smuggling along the entire Chinese coast. Matheson blamed the Chinese dislike for ``free trade'' to their ``marvellous degree of imbecility and avarice, conceit and obstinacy.'' Jardine was nicknamed ``Iron-Headed Old Rat'' by the Chinese. ...

... Matheson used his opium fortune to become the second largest landholder in Great Britain, and was made a Baron by Queen Victoria. ...

... By the late 1830's, there was no doubt that opium was leading to the destruction of China. By 1836, opium shipments were more than 30,000 chests, enough to supply 12.5 million smokers. The Chinese imperial army lost a battle against local rebels because the army was addicted to opium. The financial drain on China was disrupting the entire economy. From 1829 to 1840, Chinese exports had brought in 7 million silver dollars, but imports, mainly opium had drained 56 million. ...

Creating a Pretext for War

Elliot sought to establish a pretext for war other than the defense of opium, arguing that the issue was the Chinese demand that British merchants be subject to ``barbaric'' Chinese law. He instructed British merchants to hand over their, in fact, unsalable opium stockpiles, with the promise that the British government would reimburse them for their loss. ...

... While Matheson continued the company's smuggling operations from the new base at Hongkong, Jardine was sent to London, as the representative of all the opium smugglers, to rally support for war. The propaganda he spread in London, was that honest British merchants were being besieged, imprisoned, deprived of food, and actually threatened with death. He rallied British cotton merchants that war was necessary to ``open China'' to imports of British cloth. ...

... The British carried out a series of attacks on Chinese cities using the fleet to destroy obsolete Chinese fortifications, and then threaten the cities with destruction unless they paid ransom. The British moved cannon to the edge of Canton, and forced the city to pay a ransom of $6 million. Shanghai paid $300,000, ransom but was still severely looted. ...

... The Chinese refused to even discuss the legalization of opium. The Emperor responded: ``Gain-seeking and corrupt men will for profit and sensuality defeat my wishes, but nothing will induce me to derive a revenue from the vice and misery of my people.'' ...

... In the period following the first Opium War, Hongkong was avoided by tea or silk traders, and instead served as a center for opium smuggling, gambling, prostitution and piracy. The Governor of Hongkong reported that ``almost every person possessed of capital who is not connected with government employ is employed in the opium trade.''

Hongshang: Central Bank for the Opium Trade

The Hongkong economy has continued to be dominated by opium money, as it developed into a model for the success of British ``free enterprise'' methods. The Hongkong and Shanghai Bank (``Hongshang''), the closest thing to a Central Bank that exists in the ``free enterprise'' Hongkong economy, was founded with opium money.

In the treaty ending the second Opium War, the Chinese were forced to accept the legalization of opium. With Chinese resistance broken, large scale opium production in China was begun, supposedly to stop the drain on silver caused by opium imports. Both imports and domestic production soared, with imports reaching 105,508 chests by 1880. It is conservatively estimated, that China's opium-addicts numbered between 30 and 40 million, at that time. ...

... Opium remained at the head of the list, averaging 10 million pounds sterling a year during the 1880's. By 1900, a great part of government revenues went to pay indemnities, imposed on China by various ``peace'' treaties.

Opium went hand-in-hand with foreign conquest and revolution. China was rapidly broken apart by the centrifugal forces introduced by the effects of British looting. From 1850 to 1860, China was racked by revolts by the Taiping and Triad gangs. Deaths from the chaos are estimated to have been several tens of millions. Many provinces lost more than half their population. By 1916, China was so shattered, that when nationalists around Sun Yat-sen attempted to set up a Republic, the greatest problem was to unite the country.

Adam Smith, An apologist for the British East India Company

... Adam Smith, in his Wealth of Nations, followed this belief, that human behavior was best ordered by each man following his hedonistic desires to their lawful conclusion. He argued that opium was a legitimate product, the same as any other commodity, that the objective laws of the ``invisible hand'' must be allowed to determine all economic activity, and anything which stood in the way, such as national governments, were an obstacle which must be removed.

John Dimitri Negroponte (born July 21, 1939) is a career diplomat currently serving as Director of National Intelligence for the United States. Prior to this appointment, Negroponte served in the United States Foreign Service from 1960 to 1997. He subsequently served as US ambassador to the United Nations from 2001 until 2004, and was US ambassador to Iraq from June 2004 to April 2005.

Negroponte was born in London. His father was a Greek shipping magnate. He graduated from Phillips Exeter Academy in 1956 and Yale University in 1960 (Member of Skull and Bones). He later served at eight different Foreign Service posts in Asia, Europe and Latin America; and he also held important positions at the State Department and the White House. In 1981 he became the US embassador to Honduras. From 1985 to 1987, Negroponte held the position of Assistant Secretary of State for Oceans and International Environmental and Scientific Affairs. Subsequently he served as Deputy Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs from 1987 to 1989, Ambassador to Mexico from 1989 to 1993 and Ambassador to the Philippines from 1993 to 1996. From 1997 until his appointment as ambassador to the UN, Negroponte was an executive with McGraw-Hill.

Negroponte speaks five languages (Greek, Spanish, French, English, Vietnamese). He is the brother of Nicholas Negroponte, founder of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Media Lab. Negroponte and his wife, Diana, have five children.

333 - Pronounced "Three-thirty-three." The title of the American history course required of all uppers at Phillips Exeter Academy, and also the name of the paper required by the said course.

Just a mile from the Potomac River, in Alexandria, Virginia and overlooking the nation's capitol, stands the 333 ft. George Washington Masonic National Memorial on historic Shooters Hill. ...

Dr. John Phillips and his wife Elizabeth founded the Phillips Exeter Academy in Exeter, New Hampshire, USA, in 1781. His nephew Samuel Phillips, Jr. founded the nearby Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts in 1778. These two schools are among the oldest and most prestigious preparatory schools in the U.S.

"In the eighteenth century, opium was highly sought after by the Chinese, and so in 1773, the British East India Company assumed the monopoly of opium trading in Bengal. Company ships were not allowed officially to carry opium to China. So the opium produced in Bengal was sold in Calcutta on condition that it be sent to China.

"Despite the official Chinese ban on opium imports, reaffirmed in 1799, it was smuggled into China from Bengal by traders and agency houses averaging 900 tons a year. The proceeds from drug-runners at Lintin were paid into the Company’s factory at Canton and by 1825, most of the money needed to buy tea in China was raised by the opium trade. In 1838, the Chinese imposed a death penalty on opium smuggling which was then close to 1400 tons a year, and sent a new governor, Lin Zexu to curb smuggling. This finally resulted in the Opium War of 1840, eventually leading to the British seizing Hong Kong."

Elihu Yale, (April 5, 1649 – July 8, 1721), was the first benefactor of Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, U.S.. His ancestry can be traced back to the family estate at Plas yn Iâl near the village of Llanarmon yn Iâl, Wrexham, Wales, and the name Yale is the English spelling of the Welsh place name, Iâl. He was a prominent governor of Madras, India, in British East India, amassed a fortune in his lifetime, and was generous with the proceeds.

"Elihu Yale was born near Boston, educated in London, and served with the British East India Company, eventually becoming governor of Fort Saint George, Madras, India in 1687. He amassed a great fortune from trade and returned to England in 1699. Yale became known as quite a philanthropist; upon receiving a request from the Collegiate School in Connecticut, he sent a donation and a gift of books. After subsequent bequests, Cotton Mather suggested the school be named Yale College, in 1718. Location of the infamous Skull and bones society...

Elihu is the fourth oldest senior society at Yale University. It was founded in 1903 by members of Skull and Bones, Scroll and Key and Wolf's Head. While similar to these three in charter and function, Elihu favors privacy over overt secrecy, which the founding members believed less offensive to late 19th century sensibilities. To this end, it is the only senior society whose building, at 175 Elm Street, has windows, although they are shaded. It is historically among the most left-wing and egalitarian of the current senior societies. It is named for Elihu Yale, one of the University's major benefactors.

The club's three-story white clapboard house is the oldest of all society buildings. Its brick basement is older still, constructed in the early 1600s as the Tory Tavern, a central locale of the Revolutionary War. It one of the oldest original structures in the United States still in regular use.

Tory

"From Toraidhe, Irish for bandit, cattle thief or outlaw, this term was initially applied pejoratively to the English supporters of the future James II during the Exclusion Crisis of 1679. 'Tories' later became the nickname of a political party (later known as the Conservatives) of those who, by common agreement, were particularly loyal to 'Church and king'"

"An American who favored the British side during the American Revolution"

"A Loyalist that supported the British"

The Whigs or Liberals were against the Tories...The Left vs the Right...

"Sixteen men and women are tapped during their junior year for their academic, athletic, or extra curricular excellence and commitment to public service. Members formally meet for dinner on Thursday and Sunday nights of their senior year. While the program is varied, it centers largely on the sharing of intimate life histories, with one evening of the week devoted to each member."

Famous graduates include Senator Joseph Lieberman, author Paul Monette and philanthropist Sir John Templeton, British citizen living in Nassau, the Bahamas.

A statue of Nathan Hale stands on Old Campus at Yale University. There is a copy of that statue in front of the CIA's headquarters in Langley, Virginia. Yet another stands in front of Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts (where George H.W. Bush ('48) went to prep school and joined a secret society at age twelve).

"30 Jan 1976 George H.W. Bush begins a 12-month stint as Director of Central Intelligence. He later describes the situation in a 1999 ceremony at CIA headquarters: "I walked in here 24 years ago untutored in the arts of intelligence.""

Nathan Hale, CIA Kids page along with three other Yale graduates, was a member of the "Culper Ring," one of America's first intelligence operations. Established by George Washington, it was successful throughout the Revolutionary War. Nathan was the only operative to be ferreted out by the British, and after speaking his famous regrets, he was hanged in 1776. Ever since the founding of the Republic, the relationship between Yale and the "Intelligence Community" has been unique.

In 1823, Samuel Russell established Russell and Company for the purpose of acquiring opium in Turkey and smuggling it to China. Russell and Company merged with the Perkins (Boston) syndicate in 1830 and became the primary American opium smuggler. Many of the great American and European fortunes were built on the "China"(opium) trade.

One of Russell and Company's Chief of Operations in Canton was Warren Delano, Jr., grandfather of Franklin Roosevelt. Other Russell partners included John Cleve Green (who financed Princeton), Abiel Low (who financed construction of Columbia), Joseph Coolidge and the Perkins, Sturgis and Forbes families. (Coolidge's son organized the United Fruit company, and his grandson, Archibald C. Coolidge, was a co-founder of the Council on Foreign Relations.)

Dr Henry Kissinger

A member of the Council on Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission, leading Bilderberger and head of Kissinger Associates (with Lord Carrington), Henry Kissinger is also connected with the Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA), the Chase Manhattan Bank, the Rockefeller Foundation, and is international advisor to the Hollinger Group. He is also a member of the Alpine Freemasons Lodge in Switzerland and was possibly a leading figure in P2.

Chatham House, also known as the Royal Institute of International Affairs is a non-profit, non-governmental organization based in London whose mission is to analyse and promote the understanding of major international issues and current affairs. It is regarded as one of the world's leading organizations in this area. It takes its name from its premises, an 18th century house in St. James's Square designed in part by Henry Flitcroft and once occupied by the British Prime Minister William Pitt, 1st Earl of Chatham (The Council on Foreign Relations is its American sister institute)

Chatham House is the origin of the confidentiality rule known as the Chatham House Rule, which provides that members attending a seminar may discuss the results of the seminar in the outside world, but may not discuss who attended or what they said.

Bush names Kissinger to head 9/11 probe
Bush: 'Follow all the facts, wherever they lead'
Friday, November 29, 2002 Posted: 10:43 AM EST (1543 GMT)

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Bush on Wednesday named former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger to lead an independent panel to investigate U.S. intelligence failures before the September 11 terrorist attacks.

"This investigation should carefully examine all the evidence and follow all the facts, wherever they lead," said Bush, whose administration initially opposed the commission.

"We must uncover every detail and learn every lesson of September the 11th," Bush said.

Her Majesty's Most Honourable Privy Council is a body of advisors to the British Sovereign. The Sovereign, when acting on the Council's advice, is known as the King-in-Council or Queen-in-Council. The members of the Council are collectively known as The Lords of Her Majesty's Most Honourable Privy Council (sometimes The Lords and others of...). The chief officer of the body is the Lord President of the Council, who is the fourth highest Great Officer of State, a member of the Cabinet, and normally, the Leader of either the House of Lords or the House of Commons. Another important official is the Clerk, whose signature is appended to all orders made in the Council. like this one

The Most Noble Order of the Garter is an English order of chivalry with a history stretching back to mediæval times; today it is the world's oldest national order of knighthood in continuous existence and the pinnacle of the British honours system. Its membership is extremely limited, consisting of the Sovereign and not more than twenty-five full members. The monarch of the United Kingdom is known as the "Sovereign of the Garter" and the Prince of Wales is known as a "Knight Companion of the Garter."

Liberals?

You are all uesful idiots along with the so called Liberals...nothing less...nothing more...

Yay it's Super Bawl 42...The Liberals vs. The Conservatives

The top divided and conquered the bottom (Into the left useful idiots and the right useful idiots) many many many centuries ago...

Inflation less than previous inflation to maximum potential (A.k.a. Deflation) is what Inflation greater than previous inflation to maximum potential transforms into when inflation greater than previous inflation to maximum potential reaches maximum potential...

The USA has been hyperinflating for decades...The FED will not stop deflation...it's impossible...All the FED can do is help the consumer postpone and delay it...That's what you all are currently doing day in and day out...postponing and delaying the inevitable for as long as possible...

You all seem to think that it's some evil scheme dreamed up by Daddy Warbucks...It's just how civilization as you know it functions and has always functioned...inflate greater than previous inflation to maximum potential and then when maximum potential inflation greater than previous inflation is reached...Inflation greater than previous inflation to maximum potential transforms into Inflation less than previous inflation to maximum potential...

The surface of the planet is coated with the ruins to prove it many times over...

Can't print up food to feed people...Or gasoline to fuel cars...or electricity to power the Internet...And The FEDERAL RESERVE does not print money at all...Consumers cause money to be created when they request a commercial bank to manufacture it...If consumers have requested all they can request or refuse to request any more...that's the end of the line...

Hint: A house is for the protection of a Family unit not a speculative get rich quick scheme or an ATM equity withdrawl machine.

The inflation greater than previous inflation of the money supply transforms into the inflation less than previous inflation of the money supply...Like in 1929 when maximum potential was reached...just this time around...the magnitude is many times greater...

Boy oh boy are you all going to be enraged when you all start really suffering from the effects that you think you are somehow prepared for or are going to escape...Nobody is going to escape top to bottom bottom to top you all are going to wake up from the daydream into the nightmare...

As the economy continues to implode...eventually no one will be paying anything...all the contracts on Earth are dependant upon Inflation greater than previous inflation to sustain them....Once inflation greater than previous inflation to maximum potential reaches maximum potential and transforms into inflation less than previous inflation to maximum potential...every contract on Earth will be busted...one contract pays for two and those two pay for 4 and those 4 for 8 etc...

Behind the scenes the debate currently is between doing what is required to at least keep you all fed (save as many as possible) or just pulling the plug and letting you all starve (Liquidate as many as possible)...and how to deal with the fate resisters.

Behind the scenes they are not wondering if....they know what is coming...The war on terror was just cover to implement all the new crowd controls for the austerity measures that are about to be presented.

The Key problem is that it's not just the good old USA in trouble...the entire "so called" civilized world is imploding...

And the number one source of inflation greater than previous inflation on earth is the US consumer...unfortunately there is no single economic zone or combination outside of the USA that can replace the USA because all the zones outside the USA are dependant upon the US consumer due to the 1944 Bretton Woods global trade system to sustain those outside the USA...The US consumer reaches maximum potential and China/India/every economic zone on Earth are cut off from the inflation they require to keep their economies inflated and they implode...

So there is no way to stop the nightmare...just postpone and delay for as long as possible...That's what has been going on since 1944...A delay of the inevitable...That is what is going on right now and it's what you and everyone else in the world is working day in and day out doing...delaying the inevitable for as long as possible...

Soon everyone is going to wake up from the daydream into the nightmare...You will believe...Because you are going to see it. You are seeing it now..

People say...I'm not in debt to anyone...so I'll be fine...You are in debt to the electricity company...the supermarket...the gas stations...etc...and without a source of income equal to or greater than what you are in debt to them for...all your savings...if any...will rapidly vanish...

And ultimately so will you...

LOL @ HYPER. Your ego is inflating greater than previous inflation.

"broken record" comes to mind.

You always "blog" when there is a down day in the market.

A fool can see that the "market is a ponzi scheme" the fool can see that the "top" is full of crap. No need for further "enlightenment".

You too ARE a slave to debt (the supermarket, the power company, the water company) etc. What's your point?

If you happen to live on a farm, and the world falls to pieces (dog eat dog), your farm will be stolen from you! You have generators? Gone! Food? Gone! Weapons? Gone!

The world will not end, it just won't be as fun anymore. You forget the key things that will stop our implosion!

Nuclear weapons, Massive military force, and the most fertile land in the world (ability to feed ourselves).

blah blah blah, let me know when you have offer real enlightenment, instead of these pseudo conspiracy theories (whether they're true or not, you're not offering any solutions).

Why not just let the Chinese people have credit and keep the inflation going for a while?

USA has a lot of unemployed who will be happy to make cheap USA junk to ship off to Chinese consumers who pay with VISA cards and home equity loans.

Perhaps because China has much more unemployed workforce than the US..

Hyper... You sound like the money supply is going to drop to zero, but it won't.

Inflate less then previous yes, but not drop to zero.

The fear you told to people is overstating the problem.

"economy continues to implode"

Hyper, the Porsche Dealership kicked me out the door for demanding a 50% discount on a 911. I keep seeing new cars being stockpiled like you cannot possibly imagine around the world and I can't get any kind of frackin deal. Tommorrow I'm headed to the Benz shop and demand a 50K diesel SUV for $20K. And you know what? I'm gonna get kicked out the door again and I'll be screaming "but Hyper said its imploding..."

Lazy motherfuckers unite and cry that life isnt fair and we should just end it all..... Shame you were not born when survival meant something. Just because you cant afford servants to whipe your ass everything is broken right? Fucking get off your dead ass and work, your quality of life is just as you see it. What you need to understand is it could be a lot fucking worse. Even then its probably not that bad compared to 90% of the world.



Why is the dollar so strong when we print money like crazy? Because everyone needs security and the USA is there to make sure the boogey man doesnt get you.

What an excellent summation!

It all falls into place so nicely. It is the evolution of greed, fulfilling its' destiny. Despite the "Nightmare" unfolding before us, the awesome, breath-taking beauty of "truth" creates a rapture that is so satisfying. The relief from this storm of lies is truly emancipating.

Embrace the truth and be free.

Rejoice, and revel in our misery.
