Federal Reserve & Conspiracy Theories

COMMENT: Hi AE….just an observation for you. Altho’ you have mentioned your disagreement with the points of view of such people as Ed Griffin (The Creature From J Island), Ron Paul (End The Fed), & Jeff Berwick (current best seller is Controlled Demo of The US), all of you are in agreement about the total & utter corruption of the US, & other, gov’ts. I would say further that it seems it took you longer to get there than the others, in realizing the depth of the problem, not wanting to use the conspiracy word. So…big picture, you’re all in agreement, but the details cause disagreement. I think your “defense” of the existence of the Fed doesn’t really matter, as there’s not gonna be any Fed, or anything like it, after the civil war has run its course. Just my thoughts, not a personal attack. Absolutely LOVE your blog….am hooked, like an addict.

REPLY: Where I disagree with these ideas that the central banks are the enemy is that they are the scapegoats for the real problem has been the fiscal side — politics. These scenarios have focused on the fact that the Fed was originally set up as a bailout structure for banks to replicate what J.P. Morgan did to save the banking system in 1907. I pointed out that the “elastic money” the Fed was allowed to create from the outset was to allow them to buy-in corporate short-term paper when banks would not lend.

Then came World War I. In order to fight the war, Congress needed to create debt. They instructed the Federal Reserve to STOP buying corporate debt, being the lender of last resort, and buy government debt. Following the war, they never returned the Fed to its original purpose.

NY Times Calls For Biden to Appoint “Reality Czar” to Fight “Misinformation”

NY Times Calls For Biden to Appoint “Reality Czar” to Fight “Misinformation”

Here comes the Ministry of Truth.

The New York Times has amplified claims by “experts” who are calling for Joe Biden to appoint a “reality czar,” prompting critics to compare the idea to the Ministry of Truth in George Orwell’s 1984.

In an article entitled ‘How the Biden Administration Can Help Solve Our Reality Crisis’, the NYT’s Kevin Roose cites “experts” who are calling on “the Biden administration put together a cross-agency task force to tackle disinformation and domestic extremism, which would be led by something like a “reality czar.”

The job of this “reality czar” would be to head up “a centralized task force could coordinate a single, strategic response” to things like COVID-related and election fraud “conspiracy theories.”

“This task force could also meet regularly with tech platforms, and push for structural changes that could help those companies tackle their own extremism and misinformation problems. (For example, it could formulate “safe harbor” exemptions that would allow platforms to share data about QAnon and other conspiracy theory communities with researchers and government agencies without running afoul of privacy laws.) And it could become the tip of the spear for the federal government’s response to the reality crisis,” states the article.

“Ah, the Ministry of Truth. I’ve been waiting for this one,” responded Raheem Kassam.

While the Orwell comparison has become something of a cliché, in this instance its the best available.

“Baseless Conspiracy Theories” and our Knowledge Crisis.

“Baseless Conspiracy Theories” and our Knowledge Crisis.

Evidence, proof, and the will to deceive.

The news that the FBI is investigating Hunter Biden on suspicion of money laundering and foreign influence peddling should come as no surprise, given that the New York Post broke the story over two months ago. Of course, when that publication released the incriminating evidence that was saved to a laptop owned by Hunter Biden, the story was immediately censored on social media. Of the few major media outlets that were willing to acknowledge the existence of the story, virtually all of them did so only to emphasize that the reporting was “baseless” nonsense.

“The story could not have been more obviously fake if it had been wearing dollar-store spectacles and attached plastic mustache.”

When pressed on the matter by President Trump in a debate, Joe Biden boasted that five former heads of the CIA said that the story was “a bunch of garbage.” A couple of days earlier, dozens of former intelligence officials had signed a statement that asserted the news had all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation: “We want to emphasize that we do not know if the emails, provided to the New York Post by President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, are genuine or not and that we do not have evidence of Russian involvement,” the statement read, “just that our experience makes us deeply suspicious that the Russian government played a significant role in this case.”

Bush administration speechwriter and Atlantic editor David Frum claimed on Twitter that “The story could not have been more obviously fake if it had been wearing dollar-store spectacles and attached plastic mustache.” Weeks after the FBI investigation of Hunter Biden was confirmed, Wikipedia still labels their entry on the matter as a “conspiracy theory.” Thus, in spite of emails, photographs, and video-recorded evidence to the contrary, any claim that the Bidens did anything improper (let alone “wrong” or “illegal”) was deemed “baseless.”

Enough conspiracy, let’s stick to data and science to end the lockdowns, Part 1

Enough conspiracy, let’s stick to data and science to end the lockdowns, Part 1

(Part 2 is available here)

A couple of recurring conspiracy theory themes keep being circulated to me, they are specific to Canada but I’m sure these are typical across all locations.  I find these maddening because there is plenty of factual, well sourced and scientifically verified counterfactuals to draw from when being critical of the near universal mishandling of pandemic response by national governments worldwide.

For lockdown skeptics, embracing or amplifying fact-free hysterical conspiracy theories makes them look like lunatics, so they should stop doing that.

Allow me to dispense with the two big Canuck-themed conspiracy theories and then inject some much needed sanity into the conversation via a recent Triggernometry podcast with guest Ivor Cummins.

These conspiracies are:

#1) The Federal Government RFP to build “internment camps”

Sent to be multiple times privately. “Have you heard about the interment camps?”. Etc. They all refer to this actual, Canadian federal tender #6D112-202772/A “Service Provider(s) for Federal Quarantine / Isolation sites” which really does exist.

It sounds bad, doesn’t it. “Federal Quarantine / Isolation Sites” you mean like this kind of thing, nationally?

That’s actually a screen grab from Amazon’s Utopia series, which is a reboot of an earlier BBC series by the same name. I haven’t finished watching the Amazon version, but the BBC was originally about an elite cabal’s conspiracy to depopulate the planet by creating a false pandemic and then releasing a vaccine that would make people who took it, sterile. Pretty far out,  huh?

Anyhoo, back to reality and the Canadian RFP for “The Interment Camps”. If you actually read the tenderyou would see that the specification calls for  bids to provide “Lodging for up to 1600 people spread across Canada”.

The Real Masters Behind the Scenes

QUESTION: Hi Martin,
I read your blog with great fascination recently as the great Covid hoax continues.
You talk about the global agenda for one world government and I sadly agree with your assessment. I do wonder though if you have an opinion on who the real masters are? David Icke calls them ‘the cult’ although he doesn’t go into details about who they really are. David appears to be off his rocker but so much of what he says makes sense and it’s easy to see how his predictions will play out in front of us. Cashless societies, massive Orwellian surveillance, electronic passports, fusion of the human race with AI and ultimately a hive-mind where humans are told what to think by their computer programs. We seem to be sleep walking into a grim future. It’s incredible how quickly we have given up our freedoms and acquiesced to the madness of lockdown in return for our ‘safety’ from the flu.
I would love to hear your thoughts on this.
Best regards,
PM

 

ANSWER: We have to be very careful about sticking to facts. It is when you go off into never-never-land and talk about AI hive links that you tend to then discredit the truth. I do not know David Icke and I do not read or listen to him. I have been critical of these conspiracy theories of creating a one-world government BECAUSE I do not see where it is rationally possible. That DOES NOT mean people do not believe that they can eliminate war stupidly assuming if there is only one government then it cannot declare war on itself. That is such a hair brain theory it really does not warrant more than its absurd. They never bothered to look at civil war and how countries break apart.
