By now, it should be obvious to everyone that King Henry’s game is not what it appears to be.
The real surprise is the deviously creative and complex manner in which he and others “behind the curtain” attempt to accomplish their plan. Like the age-old con game of three-card monte, the game is rigged. You can’t win no matter what you think. And if you look around and can’t spot the sucker- you’re it.
Anyone who doesn’t realize that we are the losers of a huge con game are naive in the extreme. We are going to end up as unwitting, collateral damage in the financial carnage now in progress unless we do something, now.
The emotional, financial, and economic whipsawing up and down is an intentionally created action. It is meant to create anxiety about the future; to create insecurity about your money and your investments; to virally spread the idea that the environment is dangerous and that even the “experts” don’t know what they’re doing (they don’t). It’s all a bunch of ad hoc tactics with no strategic plan anywhere to be found. The result is that the “plan” changes on any new data that comes along. This type of operation is well known to military types as the best way to LOSE the war. You’re wasting resources, taking unnecessary casualties and end up contracting instead of stabilizing your area, let alone expanding your position.
The game is rigged. There is no other way to say it.
It just doesn’t make sense – unless those in charge are either stupid or complicit in the confidence game or both. It’s time to face the facts: we’ve got a “tiger in the camp” – this is a “fifth column effort” plain and simple. We’re being had and taken for all we’ve got. This “crisis” didn’t just happen by accident. It was a planned and well-executed program to accomplish aims that are inconsistent with the well being of the American people and the world. And it’s working. Take a look at the observable symptoms: anxiety, despair, dispersal, apathy, terror, loss, etc.
It all adds up when you step back and take a look:
* On September 2008, King Henry sold us, (under threat of the ultimate apoplectic financial meltdown) on his “plan” of coming up with $700 billion in a bail out of the toxic debt of the banks. (“your money or your life!)
* Then on November 12, 2008, after shelling out many, many billions to his crony bankers, the Treasury officially abandoned the original strategy behind its $700 billion effort as unworkable because they couldn’t force banks to lend to consumers.
* The program is still called the Troubled Asset Relief Program, or TARP, but it will not buy troubled assets. “Our assessment at this time is that this is not the most effective way to use TARP funds,” Mr. Paulson said.
* Instead, Treasury will step up its program of injecting capital directly into banks and, for the first time, expand it to include financial companies that are not federally regulated banks or thrifts.
* Now, a couple of weeks later, on November 24, 2008, he changes his mind again and says we should “insure” the toxic debt of the banks that were either too important or big to allow them to fail. And he then proceeds to give away tens of billions more plus guarantees as much a three hundred and six billion of other toxic dept held by Citigroup. The details are sketchy but the Treasury has said that they would do the same thing with any bank who is considered too important to fail.
* All this with no oversight whatsoever. We still don’t know what the money bought or what it was used for. He is out of control – the worst kind of financial manager that there is.
King Henry was selling us a pig-in-a-poke and we bought it.
Pig-in-a-poke is an idiom that refers to a confidence trick originating in the Late Middle Ages, when meat was scarce but rats and cats were not. The scheme entailed the sale of a “suckling pig” in a “poke” (bag). The wriggling bag would actually contain a cat — not particularly prized as a source of meat — that was sold to the victim in an unopened bag.
Basically, to “buy a pig in a poke,” is to make a risky purchase without inspecting the item beforehand, or to accept an idea or plan without a full understanding of its basis; which describes exactly what Hank Paulson was (and is) doing.
We fell for it, hook, line and sinker and let King Henry get away with it.
But, we’ve still got one arrow left in our quiver, and it’s an extremely powerful weapon. It is the simplicity of truth when used to expose the complexity of lies. What’s more, it is the most effective tool for viral communication that you’d ever hope for. It is your thoughts, expressed in your words, either word of mouth or the written word.
Combine this tool with the greatest marketing tool the world has known (the internet) and you have everything you need to expose what he is doing and get him investigated and his deception and lies exposed for what they are.
The old saying, “fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me” – comes painfully to mind.
When are we going to wake up? The game really is rigged.
It’s a con game by one of the greatest confidence men in history. It’s time to pull back the curtain and expose what’s really going on.
