Ultimate Bankster Deception
Firstly, it’s been a few weeks since you last seen my words of reason. Rest assured, I am not giving up on my mission to unravel the money, market and investments chronicles of the Ivory Tower. Frankly, the past month has been busy with other projects and meetings which ate up more time than I had anticipated.
In any case, given the constant droning and buzzing of the US Presidential election, I also preferred to stay clear as that saw came down.
Not surprisingly, over the course of the past few months, I’ve regularly been asked, “Adrian, who do you think will win?” or “What impact will so-and-so’s victory have on the markets?”
Let me stop right there and disappoint you with two facts:
1. I’m not here to tell you who I think will win or should win so if you’re thinking, “Adrian’s finally going to unveil his political colors” (hint: there aren’t any colors), you’re better off stopping now and saving yourself a few minutes of your life; and
2. I’m not here to prognosticate about market directions and reactions.
Here’s what I will proclaim – I don’t think either candidate in the US Bankster election will make one iota of a difference to your life nor to my life. Don’t believe me?
In 2016, when Trump was victorious over Clinton, did anything change in your life, for better or worse?
Or what about Obama’s victories in 2008 and 2012 over McCain and Romney, respectively? Don’t forget, Obama whose campaign was all about “change”. And yet, how much change did you experience in your life resulting directly from his electoral wins?
And, of course, the same can be applied any political landscape. Has your life been directly impacted by Trudeau in Canada? Or Harper before him?
None of these Banksters care one shred about your well-being. They’ve achieved the highest office of the world. It is for their own life’s aggrandizement and fulfillment that they pursued and achieved (or lost) it; not for your life’s.
All that aside, even just to think that the best two “top” candidates the “land of the free” could come up with are two geriatric, incoherent white men with inclinations toward debasement of women, shoveling platitudes to the masses while filling their pockets with foreign money. Yeah, there’s a choice any sane person would love to write home about.
So, while you wallow in your candidate’s loss or bust a move to celebrate your side’s victory, these Banksters continue to grow their power over you, their influence over you and their own wealth. Yes, my friends, the very same Banksters who cry over income or wealth inequality are actually…and brace yourselves here…this is a doozy…they’re actually becoming wealthier and more powerful in this whole process. Inequality of any kind is the last thing on their mind. What do they care? They’re living their dream!
And you want me to bow down to either one of them?
In the home stretch of this whole fiasco, I came across this timely Gordon Gekko quote from the first Wall Street film. Remember, this was in 1987 so the numbers and lingo are a bit off:
“The richest one percent of this country owns half our country’s wealth, five trillion dollars. One third of that comes from hard work, two thirds comes from inheritance, interest on interest accumulating to widows and idiot sons and what I do, stock and real estate speculation. It’s bullshit. You got ninety percent of the American public out there with little or no net worth. I create nothing. I own. We make the rules, pal. The news, war, peace, famine, upheaval, the price per paper clip. We pick the rabbit out of the hat while everybody sits out there wondering how the hell we did it. Now you’re not naïve enough to think we’re living in a democracy, are you Buddy?” (1)
Now, this is aside from the US not actually being a democracy in the first place, but rather a republic. That’s not a rabbit hole with enough time to visit here right now, though.
Anyways, to complement this quote, I also came across an interesting graphic, comparing population composition of medieval feudalism of the past to corporate feudalism of today.
Central Bankers, Big Bankers, Corporate Elite, Elected Officials, and Top Bureaucrats and Professionals comprise of 1.5% of our population meaning that leaves everyone else outside positions of wealth and power.
So, my question to you is, do you still believe your well-being and advancement in life need to be tied to one of these banksters? Do you truly think any one of them wakes up in the morning, wondering what they can sacrifice in their life to make yours better?
And yet, here you are, sacrificing your health and time worrying about these outcomes. That does not seem like a very efficient use of either for you.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not here arguing for or against voting. Rather, I think we would do ourselves a boatload of good to recognize that none of these banksters will do anything for our lives. No leader, new or old, will reach your goals for you. It’s up to me to rise my buttocks out of bed every morning and grind away, day-in and day-out, to do my level best to reach my pinnacle of life.
Want to lose weight? I’m not sure how any political leader can do that for you.
Want to reach millionaire or billionaire status? No political leader will achieve that for you. Believe me, they’re too busy swining at the trough for their loot to even notice you.
Want to take control of your own life and to have the freedom to do what you want when you want? Again, ain’t no political leader going to make that happen for you. Many of them may even work in direct opposition to your efforts but not one of them will stand by your side to help you along the way.
It’s with such motivations and views that I’ve been working on bettering my clients’ positions and my family’s position, all the while trying to filter out the noise which is of no help in reaching our goals. So yes, a brief shameless plug here.
