This can be the most enlightening and empowering series of articles you read in your lifetime -- depending, of course, on whether you take action after becoming informed, or simply remain a spectator in one of the most exciting periods in Western history.

Technically, the definition of cartel is "an agreement between most or all of the major producers of a good, either to limit production and/or fix prices.  Cartels are generally illegal in the United States." 

Whether brazenly open or deeply hidden, cartels do much more than that – and they control every major economy and government on earth today.

In these United States, we are acutely aware of the narcoterrorist cartels that control Mexico through abject terror.  We consider it positively barbaric, yet for many Chicago families today life is no less precarious than it was under the Prohibition-era rule of cartel leader Al Capone, or than the life of the average Mexican.

A Rose by Any Other Name

Some would accuse me of misapplying the definition of cartel.  They would respond that what happens every day in Washington D.C. under control of the cartels, is all legal.  Of course, that was Capone's constant reply, and his lawyers made certain it stuck.  Until one day, it didn't.

If citizens could put a National Security Agency bug on every brunch, lunch, dinner, round of golf or raquetball in which a member of Congress or his key staff was present, we would find that most deals struck could be classified as criminal if you or I attempted them. 

Deep-capture of D.C. by the cartels is innocuously labeled 'lobbying' by mainstream media – which is itself one of the cartels.  But whatever the label, each deal skims your payroll account without your knowledge or consent, even over your strenuous objection. 

Videos That Will Deprogram Your School Propaganda

To learn honest American history in less than half-hour, see the 2-part video series HERE and HERE produced by Brian Young (OneTruth4Life) or THIS amazing 44 minute video will finally put today's (and tomorrow's!) news in perspective. 

Man is Wolf to Man

As both videos above explain, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Andrew Jackson, and many other statesmen warned America to beware the Alpha Wolf – the banking industry. 

After James Madison finally killed Alexander Hamilton's illicit First Bank of the United States, Andrew Jackson beat back the bankers in the mid-1830s, killing the proposed Second Bank of the United States.  But the banking cartel is as indefatigable as it is ruthless and immoral.  It came roaring back under the fog of war, with the help of its puppet Mr. Lincoln, a former failed railroad lawyer.  

In this article, we introduce four books that shine the light of truth on over a century of Lincoln propaganda by the government schools (and such conservative private schools as Hillsdale College). The common meme is that Lincoln tried to bust the bankers' choke-hold by launching a government counterfeiting operation, printing 'greenbacks'. The truth is that Abraham Lincoln, the founder of literal American Marxism, was playing directly into the bankers' hands with the greenback operation just as Hamilton had done with the fraudulent stock-swindle of his First Bank of the U.S. 

In this article, we explained why Lincoln's war must properly be called 'The War to Enslave the States.'  It created the critical hinge of American history; the point at which our Constitution was hijacked.  Our foreign and domestic enemies (the cartels) divided us into equal, offsetting North-South halves.  After the war, it devised an ingenious donkey-elephant industry to keep these sovereign States and the sovereign American People up in arms...fighting one another.

In this past article, we pointed the reader to many books and several videos that offer an excellent education on the history of money, banking, credit, and economic cycles -- and how lawful money and banking will be restored. 

Not coincidentally, international megabank HSBC was founded in 1865 with its sights set on Europe-Asia trade.  Today, that bank defrauds and siphons from over 55 million 'customers' worldwide.

The supposed American central bank gave itself the felicitous, fraudulent name 'Federal Reserve' -- but it is not a federal agency, only a private crime cartel.  And it has no 'reserves'; only the command of government counterfeiting presses.  Nor is it primarily even an American cartel.  Federal Reserve ownership is held by two Rothschild banks (London, Berlin); two Warburg banks (Amsterdam, Hamburg); Lazard Freres Bank (Paris); Israel Moses Seif banks (Italy); and Chase Manhattan, Lehman Brothers, and Kuhn-Loeb banks in New York. 

This mega-banking cartel must include the wide array of derivative financial industries; together, this Alpha Wolf rules the pack among American crime cartels by making wars at will.  As USMC Major General Smedley Butler wrote in his classic War is a Racket:

War is just a racket. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of people. Only a small inside group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few at the expense of the masses.

I believe in adequate defense at the coastline and nothing else. If a nation comes over here to fight, then we'll fight. The trouble with America is that when the dollar only earns 6 percent over here, then it gets restless and goes overseas to get 100 percent. Then the flag follows the dollar and the soldiers follow the flag...

There isn't a trick in the racketeering bag that the military gang is blind to. It has its "finger men" to point out enemies, its "muscle men" to destroy enemies, its "brain men" to plan war preparations, and a "Big Boss", Super-Nationalistic Capitalism.

It may seem odd for me, a military man to adopt such a comparison. Truthfulness compels me to. I spent 33 years and four months in active military service as a member of this country's most agile military force, the Marine Corps. I served in all commissioned ranks from Second Lieutenant to Major-General. And during that period, I spent most of my time being a high class muscle-man for Big Business, for Wall Street and for the Bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism.

I suspected I was just part of a racket at the time. Now I am sure of it. Like all the members of the military profession, I never had a thought of my own until I left the service. My mental faculties remained in suspended animation while I obeyed the orders of higher-ups. This is typical with everyone in the military service.

I helped make Mexico...safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefits of Wall Street. The record of racketeering is long. I helped purify Nicaragua for the international banking house of Brown Brothers in 1909-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for American sugar interests in 1916. In China I helped to see to it that Standard Oil went its way unmolested.

During those years, I had, as the boys in the back room would say, a swell racket. Looking back on it, I feel that I could have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents.

The Alpha Wolf cartel shares its rule with other cartels whose leaders are well-loved public figures, but ruthless behind closed doors, and include the following industries:  

  • Armaments (so-called 'defense' contractors)
  • Petrochemicals & Energy
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Healthcare
  • Agriculture & processed foods industries
  • Telecommunications
  • So-called 'news' media
  • Entertainment media
  • Advertising
  • K-12 education
  • Higher education
  • Professional sports
  • Insurance
  • Automotive
  • Political party machines
  • Federal tax industry
  • Homebuilders
  • Commercial and bridge/highway construction
  • Tort lawyers
  • Computer hardware & software
  • Internet providers & search engines

All in the Family

Corrupt cartels have ruled Mexico since its independence from Spain.  But the same history of corruption is found in most countries on earth.  Human nature causes evil to rear its head soon or late, now as ever. 

However, God's nature means that His grace can restore a repentant people, now as ever.  The whole idea behind America having been called the 'New World' was that in this place, the besetting sins of the Old World could be set aside and a fresh start made.  America's deep Christian foundation and resulting rule of law made this place unique on earth, for a time.

The chances are good that you or a family member works in one of the cartelized industries listed above, and of course you have nothing to do with corrupt deal-making.  By being just one cog in a much larger machine, you are what the drug cartels refer to as a 'mule'.  When deals go down, America's wall of corruption goes up. 

So -- are we all simply laying bricks in our own corner of our industry?  What else can we do?  If even 'our' military industry is part of the problem, can we Americans stop the cartels?

In Part II of this series, we begin to probe that question, before giving the positive, exciting answer in Part III.
