Is America Under Attack? … Or Are the Barbarians Inside the Gates?

Congress and American economists are blaming China for America’s economic woes.

But as I’ve previously pointed out, while China’s weak Yuan policy is hurting the U.S. to some extent, America’s economic problems are largely of its own making.

As I have previously documented, America’s too big to fail banks and government have destroyed our economy by:

Failing to prosecute those who committed rampant fraud, thus encouraging them to do it again

Rewarding the gamblers who bet everything on insane speculative deals by bailing them out once they lost their bets

Letting the largest U.S. banks go bankrupt repeatedly due to wild speculation, then blessing the speculation and helping cover up the bankruptcies

Failing to restore trust in the financial system, but instead suspending the few accounting rules which still exist

Blowing bubble after bubble

Refusing to break up the too big to fails, even though virtually all independent economists say that they are a black hole dragging down our economy

Using bailouts, gimmicks and quantitative easing to temporarily put wallpaper over the holes in our economy, instead of fixing the real problems

Transferring risk from private banks to the people, instead of making the giant banks write down their bad debts

Waging unnecessary wars all over the world, so that even our top military commanders are begging to slash defense costs, and otherwise buried our nation under mountains of debt

Sacrificing any real chance to reduce unemployment in order to keep inflation low

Shipping American jobs overseas, and giving corporations huge tax incentives to claim that their business is all done abroad

Allowing the big financial players operate with insane amounts of leverage

Burdening the American people with trillions in unnecessary interest

Plundering the treasury to effect “a massive redistribution of wealth to the bank shareholders and their top executives”

Allowing high-frequency trading to completely warp the markets

Privatizing profits and socializing losses, trashing the real value of the dollar, and letting corruption run rampant

Failing to take any meaningful steps to stabilize – let alone fix – the economy


See thisthisthis and this.

Barbarians inside the American financial system have destroyed that system.


American leaders have blamed terrorists for our loss of rights.

But many of those rights were lost before 9/11. See this and this.

And former Secretary of Homeland Security Tom Ridge says that he was pressuredto raise terror alerts to help Bush win reelection.

And former counterterrorism czar Richard Clarke said a year ago:

A lot of the cases after 9/11 were manufactured or enormously exaggerated and were announced with great trumpets by the attorney general and the FBI director so that we felt that they were doing something when, in fact, what they were doing was not helpful, not relevant, not needed.


And FBI agents and CIA intelligence officials, constitutional law expert professor Jonathan Turley, Time Magazine, Keith Olbermann and the Washington Post have allsaid that U.S. government officials “were trying to create an atmosphere of fear in which the American people would give them more power”.

And former U.S. National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski told the Senate thatthe war on terror is “a mythical historical narrative”.

And governments from around the world have admitted that they carry out false flag terror in order to promote their political agendas.

(Yes, even the new terror threats in Europe are overblown. See this and this.)

Government has been using anti-terrorism laws to crush dissent and to serve the needs of big business.

Barbarians inside the American national security system have destroyed our liberties and freedoms based on false pretenses.

Ironically, the war on terror actually diminishes our national security. So the barbarians inside the gates are opening us up to the barbarians abroad as well.

    …. the Barbarians Inside the Gates…..pretty well sums up the real problem facing America right now. Good article. Thanks!

  • David says:

    “. . . while China’s weak Yuan policy is hurting the U.S. to some extent, America’s economic problems are largely of its own making.”

    That would be an understatement! China’s weak Yuan policy? Try U.S.’ weak USD policy. The rate at which the USD is being debased by QE1, TARP1 and TARP2, i.e., creating USD either electronically or by printing it from the thin air, is fundamental cause of what is behind this currency problem. What the U.S. is saying to export countries like China is, “Stop debasing your currency! We are the only ones allowed to debase ours!”

    BTW, the financial fraud being committed in the U.S. is a shinning example!

    See Emet Group reported by Joel C. Rosenberg, 18 Aug. 2001 – – Political Buzz – Flash Traffic – A group of “American” business and political leaders are building a pro-Israel media “war room” in Washington, D.C. The group will be called “Emet” —which in Hebrew means “truth.” Emet will try to address biased media coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and also make the case that the conflict, while serious and important, pales in comparison to the larger geo-strategic threat posed to the United States and the West by Iran and Iraq, both of whom are trying to build and/or acquire weapons of mass destruction. Funding Emet is Leonard Abramson; he sold U.S. Healthcare to Aetna in the mid-1990s for $8.9 billion. Abramson has recruited a powerful board of directors, including Bernie Marcus, founder of Home Depot; Les Wexner, founder of The Limited; Edgar Bronfman Sr., who once owned Seagram’s; and Lou Ranieri, a major Wall Street player who now co-owns one of Israel’s largest banks. Also joining the board are Jeane Kirkpatrick, former U.S. Ambassador to the UN, and Jack Kemp.[]…Remember Waco, Randy Weaver, and Gordon Kahl..

    True,no doubt about it-inside the gates and secure and worse than barbarians.

  • Barney says:

    The barbarians have been inside the gates for over a 100 years.
    During the past century there have been numerous “watchmen on the walls” shouting “they’ve breached our defenses”, “they’re inside the walls”, “let’s fight them”. The American people ignored the cries of all the watchmen for the whole time. Now that they are in absolute control of most all of the importance facets of our society, a few, a very small percentage of the American people see that “something” is happening to them. Something has gone wrong.
    It’s too late. The barbarians and their 5th column American allies have complete control of government, banking, commerce, manufacturing, communications, the media, politics, the entertainment industry, education, religion, legal system, military, and … must I keep going on and on. It’s over. The Republic is dead. Freedom and Liberty are gone. Never to come back. The American Dream is now the American Nightmare. Sad, that it is what it is. There will be no 2nd American Revolution. There aren’t enough “men” in America to muster even a whimper to resist them. American men have morphed into women. A bunch of “dumb s****s.

    “We Jews continue to be amazed with the ease by which Christian Americans have fallen into our hands. While the naive Americans wait for Khrushchev to bury them, we have taught them to submit to our every command.” [This submission has been made partly possible by the gradual adoption of Talmudic concepts as being Christian, thus producing a Jewish society. It is what Rabbi Martin Siegel called, “the Judaization of Christianity.”] When asked how a nation could be captured without their knowing it, Mr. Rosenthal attributed this victory to absolute control of the media – he boasted of jewish control of all news. Any newspaper which refused to acquiesce to controlled news was brought to its knees by withdrawing advertising. Failing in this, the Jews stop the supply of newsprint and ink. It’s a very simple matter”. – Harold Rosenthal

    The Banksters and the Federal Reserve have to end, but unfortunately, the politicians we have, who only work for them. I would have that would have been made crystal clear to the USA citizens by now when they:

    1. Clearly work for the Banksters.
    2. Refuse to end our “Free Trade” laws.
    3. Refuse to secure our borders and enforce our immigration laws.

    Speaking of illegal aliens, in California, the Mainstream Media only talk about the potential government race between Jerry Brown and Meg Whitman {who declares she wants a “Pathway to Legalization” and while (Jerry Brown has been in our government forever and is totally worthless), MEG WHITMAN kowtows to LATINOS (especially Illegal Alien Latinos) and treats like them sacred cows.

    The Mainstream Media (in California) refuses to even acknowledge CHELENE NIGHTINGALE for Governor. She would be a true patriot, (not like either Jerry Brown or Meg Whitman).

    FREE TRADE LAWS: When will: NAFTA, CAFTA, GATT and the WTO be ended? The politicians (Both parties) rant on and on about jobs, yet they refuse to address this, let alone acknoweledge this.

    The U.S.A. citizens MUST recognize that the R-L political paradigm is false and they should start supporting people who will actually representing them, NOT the NWO-1-World Order globalist agenda. These politicians hate and despise their consituents and represent everyone else on this planet except us. When will the citizenry wake up?

  • Cold Wind says:

    The barbarians are, of course, Israel Firsters,the Zionists, especially organized Jewry (AIPAC,the ADL/B’nai B’rith etc),the Jewish philanthropies, the Jewish owned Media establishment, including Hollywood, the Jewish owned Bank and Investment Houses, including the Federal Reserve. Etc.

  • I am personlly so amazed that people can possibly fall for such dinky scripted bullshit as the so-called “War on Terroroism”

    The “Underpants Bomber”?
    The “Times Square Bomber”?

    These things just reek of hack PR jerks trying to pull off Kurt Vonnegut’s Killgore Trout routine.

    For the “Times Square” bimbo:
    The FBI had to show the explosion *on a video at the trial* they had trained their dumbshit patsy to make. An absolute mockery of human intelligence.
    Amerikans are TVZombies. They couldn’t even have sold this crap to Rod Serling as science fiction.


  • dogismyth says:

    how redundant. Any news worthy of reporting or do we continue to print the same hopeless messages? Its no wonder the spirit is broken or missing. These goddamn blogs are downright depressing, self-defeating and divisive…just like our government.

  • frank martino says:

    Barney said it all. Could use a friend like him because it is getting lonely here in new york land. Be well Frank

  • Francis Parker Yockey says:

    American combat vets continue to fight and die for predatory corporations – the same global entities that control the outcome of all elections. Who gets elected is only a matter of how much money the global corporations provide their puppet candidates – and they are all puppets. All contemporary wars are induced for profits for the elite. Peace does not pay for $25 mansions for Halliburton or Goldman Sachs executives.
    It is time for Revolution in America. Every level of government is financially and morally bankrupt. This is not a future – the future is already dead for this country. It is being sustained on legends, myths, lies, propaganda and denial and a printing press running 24 x 7.
    The only reason you don’t fully realize this is because these very corporations control what the mass media can and will tell you. You’ll need to research yourself how broad and deep the rot really is. Once you do, you’ll understand that it is time to press ctl-alt-del. It’s well past that time.
    Do this one thing: Look well into the real story behind AIG, Inc., that one corporation – (and all major corporations are that corrupt), you’ll begin to realize that we’ve all been robbed, cheated, bankrupted, our treasury looted, and our children and their children left with collective debt so vast that it could never possibly be paid off – not even a small fraction of it, in their lifetimes.
    The United States federal government alone has to borrow nearly TWO TRILLION DOLLARS each and every year just to make the payroll and pay its bills. Yet we still have a vast crumbling infrastructure, entire industries disappearing forever, incompetent or totally absent leadership in government, basic police, fire, educational services quickly disappearing. phony “universal health care, wars without end to enrich the mega security-military complex, out of control entitlement programs, and our southern border being completely overrun by millions of illegals that demand care and feeding for life, and instant citizenship.
    People – our country is doomed unless we overthrow these people. The cockroaches and rats took over the house. What you think your country was and is, does not remotely resemble the situation on the ground. The majority of Americans have lost hope, and are suffering. They do not care that hundreds of Wall Street bankers get $Billion annual salaries or the thousands of them get $25 million Christmas bonuses. The majority of Americans can relate to the next paycheck or unemployment check coming in so they can pay for groceries this month.
    Revolution is absolutely necessary. It DOES NOT MATTER who you vote for. They will tell you ANYTHING, they will lie and make empty promises, and then turn around and screw you until you are bleeding from every orifice.

    The barbarian are inside since 1913.
    Benjamin Franklin
    (This prophecy, by Benjamin Franklin, was made in a “CHIT CHAT AROUND THE TABLE DURING INTERMISSION,” at the Philadelphia Constitutional Convention of 1787. This statement was recorded in the dairy of Charles Cotesworth Pinckney, a delegate from South Carolina.)

    “I fully agree with General Washington, that we must protect this young nation from an insidious influence and impenetration. The menace, gentlemen, is the Jews.
    In whatever country Jews have settled in any great number, they have lowered its moral tone; depreciated its commercial integrity; have segregated themselves and have not been assimilated; have sneered at and tried to undermine the Christian religion upon which that nation is founded, by objecting to its restrictions; have built up a state within the state; and when opposed have tried to strangle that country to death financially, as in the case of Spain and Portugal.
    For over 1,700 years, the Jews have been bewailing their sad fate in that they have been exiled from their homeland, as they call Palestine. But gentlemen, did the world give it to them in fee simple, they would at once find some reason for not returning. Why? Because they are vampires, and vampires do not live on vampires. They cannot live only among themselves. They must subsist on Christians and other people not of their race.
    If you do not exclude them from these United States, in their Constitution, in less than 200 years they will have swarmed here in such great numbers that they will dominate and devour the land and change our form of government, for which we Americans have shed our blood, given our lives our substance and jeopardized our liberty.
    If you do not exclude them, in less than 200 years our descendants will be working in the fields to furnish them substance, while they will be in the counting houses rubbing their hands. I warn you, gentlemen, if you do not exclude Jews for all time, your children will curse you in your graves.
    Jews, gentlemen, are Asiatics, let them be born where they will nor how many generations they are away from Asia, they will never be otherwise. Their ideas do not conform to an American’s, and will not even thou they live among us ten generations. A leopard cannot change its spots. Jews are Asiatics, are a menace to this country if permitted entrance, and should be excluded by this Constitutional Convention.
    Bible(Revelation 2:9,,3:9)tell us the same thing,jews are Khazars,Ashkenazi,they have nothing to do with the Bible,they are Edomites.America is the NEW JER-USA-LEM(ZECHARIAH 2:1,2:2,2:3,2:4)Jews are the Synagogue of satan.

  • Patrick says:

    Well, do the tens of thousands of nuclear weapons that they have used our money to build produce a bit of anxiety sometimes?

    Is there any chance that they really plan to use them on us?

    Is there any truth to the notion that they are smarter than us?

    Why did they build all of these underground and mountain shelters anyways?

    Why did their ancestors in the central banks block the research of Tesla and many others and still block the over unity energy technology today?

    Did you know that the earth is orbiting our sun at the astounding speed of 66,000 miles per hour?

    Did you know that that’s where the free energy is coming from?

    They’ve known all about this for a long time now, so why do they insist upon using nuclear waste to poison our world?.

    Why do they insist that ordinary Americans fight and kill and die in distant lands around the world?

    Why have they poisoned so many Americans with depleted uranium?

    Is this why they smile funny?

    Why was Bush always smirking?

    Death and destruction and toxins in the sky and upon the lands and in the seas while the peoples are made cancerous and their yet to be born children are mutated with radioactive compounds intentionally set on them by this community of the finance world; why…oh why …why?

    Why have they no mercy upon us?

    Why have they persisted in carrying forward our extermination with such vigor?

    Why generation after generation have they not been able to select a new strategy, a strategy allowing for Peace?

    When will you understand what it is that this nuclear war fighting community of hate has done to us?

    At that time, Will you be able to “Please, forgive them, for they know not what they do?”

    Have mercy on them.

  • Graham says:

    The barbarians all have one face. They’re Zionist Jews. They’re a global criminal class.

    The own and control the privately owned Federal Reserve. The own the media and they own the global banking cartel that issues debt as money. Wake up before it’s too late. These people care nothing about America, boarders, national sovreignty or your freedoms. They want their one world government – the New World Order.

  • Jorge W says:

    Wall Street, Hollywood, US foreign policy, the Supreme Court, the legal system generally, mainstream media-management, the universities and the radical feminist and pro-abortion and pro-gay movements, are all over-Edomed. A century before the birth of Christ, a people utterly condemned by all the major prophets, the Edomites, were converted as a group to become ‘Jews’. According to Josephus, the Jewish historian who lived just after the time of Christ, ‘They (Edom) were hereafter no other than Jews’ (Josephus Antiquities of the Jews, XIII ix 1; XV vii 9). Roth’s Concise Jewish Encyclopedia (1980) says ‘John Hyrcanus forcibly converted [Edom] to Judaism. From then on they were part of the Jewish people..’ (p 154). The Jewish Encyclopedia (1925) says ‘Edom is in Jewry’ (Volume 5 p. 41). Yahweh the God of Israel, ‘hated Esau (Edom)’, a people ‘against whom he has indignation forever’ (Malachi 1:2-4). Revelation 19:13 describes Christ’s cloak as soaked in blood. Bibles with marginal references and other reference Bibles virtually all link this to Isaiah 63:1-6, so Christ Himself will destroy Edom. Obadiah verse 4: ‘Though you soar like the eagle and set your nest among the stars [referring to Edom’s power at the end of the age – see the US President’s official crest with occult, so-called ‘Star of David’ formed with stars], I will bring you down from there, says the Lord.’ ‘There shall be no survivor from the house of Esau, for the Lord has spoken’ (verse 18). If you study the subject of ‘Babylon’ (Revelation 17 and 18, Isaiah 47, Jeremiah 50 and 51), it clearly refers to the sordid, rotten, sick, corrupt anti-Christian money-power so visible today, manipulating politicians and controlling the media. Edom is linked to this Babylon (compare Isaiah 34:5-15 and Isaiah 13:19-22 with Revelation 19:3).

    Ezekiel refers to Idumea (Edom, also referred to as Mount Seir) as taking possession of the land and heritage of Israel and Judah (Ezekiel 35:10, 11, 15; 36:2, 5).The Edomites took control of Judea under the Romans – the evil Edomite Herodian dynasty symbolises this control. Jesus twice accuses ‘those who say they are Jews and are not’ as being a ‘synagogue of Satan’ (Rev2:9, 3:9). Jesus said to these Jews ‘Because you are not sheep of my flock you do not believe’ (Jn10:24-27). True Israel is hidden in the church – the evil modern Jewish counterfeit is anti-Christ (1Jn2:22-3) .

    You left out two on your list: Taking from those who are willing to work and giving to those who aren’t and rewarding ILLEGAL aliens with the same benefits as citizens along with the aforementioned taxpayer subsidized handouts.
