JD Rockefeller was the son of a traveling elixir salesman. JD, however, possessed the insight to become a financial titan.
It is not coincidence that he is also the great grandfather of a member of our One Percent.
JP Morgan came from a European banking family. He was sent to Europe, by his family, for an education specific to banking.
It is alleged that he bailed out the USA during a banking crisis.
As with many of the banking crisis events, there was always a big banking family that became far wealthier, after the rescue.
He is portrayed as a hero, but few are describing the events that lead to the need for a bail out.
This is a novel about how the “One Percent” fails, and loses control of their money, and influence.
They have risen from defeat several times, and must return to the fight.

This is, as predicted, the next step:
Thankfully, some of those in our government “appear” to be paying attention to DHS in a realistic manner, especially if what is said about a National Security force is true. Or has it already been created in the TSA. After all they have their military style uniforms.
Is this something else?
I had predicted that Congress would express outrage over the DHS’s purchases of ammo. They would then cut off the funds. This is from US Senator Inhofe from Oklahoma:
Inhofe, Lucas Introduce Bill Limiting Federal Agencies From Stockpiling Ammunition
Friday, April 26, 2013
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) and Congressman Frank Lucas (R-OK-3) today introduced in their respective chambers the Ammunition Management for More Obtainability (AMMO) Act of 2013. The legislation would require the Government Accountability Office (GAO) to conduct a report on the purchasing of ammunition by federal agencies, except the Department of Defense, and its effect on the supply of ammunition available to the public. The AMMO Act would restrict agencies from obtaining additional ammunition for a six-month period if current agency stockpiles are higher than its monthly averages prior to the Obama Administration.
I would support such a law restricting ammo surpluses, but why did we develop the need for such a law.
Here is an interesting video from NDN, the News Distribution Network:
Here is a USNews article:
DHS Denies Ammo Purchases Aimed at Civilians
This was the original post:
Part of my post was that DHS’s Big Sis would be called before Congress, and they would express deep concerns about her purchases. Well… That happened today.
Reps challenge DHS ammo buys, say agency using 1,000 more rounds per person than Army
Note that DHS is using 1000 rounds more per person than the ARMY.
How soon will Congress cut off the money to the ammo suppliers, and leave them in financial trouble.
I wanted to post this because, if there is a description of the One Percent, it begins here. This isn’t about the One Percent in total. This is about a number of people so small it would begin with several zeros on the right side of the decimal point. These people are the epitome of power; the unelected; the unaccountable, and the throttle of world economies.
The post, and link below will illustrate how the decisions made by these people led, unnecessarily, to the great depression, the opportunity for the rise of the Nazi party, and a series of events that have repeatedly plunged our world and society into unnecessary chaos. The aspect that horrifies me most is their assumption that they possess the insight or wisdom to predict the full consequences of their actions.
I have posted about the Bank For International Settlements, and this is to direct you to an interview with the author of a book about those who run that system of global central banks.
If you’re not familiar with a radio program on NPR called Fresh Air, you might want to acquaint yourself with it. A recent broadcast is about the new book called:
Three Central Bankers And A World On Fire
The following is from NPR’s description of the book, and the radio program.
In May 2010, the world’s most powerful central bankers met in Basel, Switzerland: European Central Bank’s Jean-Claude Trichet, the Bank of England’s Mervyn King and the Federal Reserve’s Ben Bernanke. A Washington Post columnist explores the role this meeting played in safeguarding the global economy.
Here is a link to that broadcast:
A quote from an interview with the author Neil Irwin, conducted by Dave Davies:
“It’s very much the case that we, as a society, have decided … [that] there are some decisions that’s better off being made by technocrats, by experts who can act quietly, who can act behind the scenes, and move quickly, and move on a scale commensurate to the problems. That’s not to say it really fits with most of our democratic principles. The Fed meets eight times a year to discuss interest rate policy. We only find out exactly what they said at those meetings five years later. We get transcripts; that’s not exactly a model of transparency. It is true that Ben Bernanke goes before Capitol Hill and answers questions over and over, and it’s true that if you know how to read their minutes and the different documents they put out, you can glean a lot about what they’re up to — but it’s very much a secretive institution. So if you’re an advocate of transparency and democracy and a free flow of information, it’s definitely the case that the Federal Reserve system and other central banks, for that matter, are not really what you want to see.”
Well-Informed Futility Syndrome:
What is it, and who gives a damn?
Most of us, other than those I include in the One Percent, started to suffer from it, after the last financial melt down, in 2008-2009. If that wasn’t enough to develop the syndrome, Iraq, Afghanistan, and the impotence of the US government, in recent years, would have been.
It’s a form of self-protection. It is developed when you have become adequately aware of the severity of the situation, and realize that you have little to no control over it.
A form of it is common to alcoholics, and defeating it is part of the twelve-step process of recovery. At the end of each Alcoholics Anonymous meeting the attendees often pray for the knowledge to understand the difference between things that one can change, and those one cannot.
I always considered it a defeatist attitude. I still do, regardless of the fact that I shrink into it on a regular basis. Writing the novel was a form of combating the syndrome. I may, at least, imagine through writing a scenario of payback for those that precipitated the crashes of the last three centuries, assist in the cure. The research into the causes, and methods utilized to create previous crashes was both a cause of intensifying the syndrome, as well as a method of combating it.
Here is some information as to its definition from:
Published: Friday, October 21, 2011
“Well-informed Futility Syndrome” was first identified in 1973 by the American psychologist Gerhart Wiebe, who was examining the response of television viewers to the real-time Vietnam War news they were receiving in their own living rooms. The more they saw and learned about the disastrous complexity of the issues, the more paralyzed they felt by a sense of futility.
I consider the novel an elixir for any of you who have contracted the syndrome. I don’t require you to admit succumbing to the syndrome, or even that you suspect its influence upon your life.
The novel describes circumstances involved in previous crashes, the events that lead to identifying those responsible, and the chase, capture, and punishment of those that deliberately injured all of us who led a life of quality.
It is, as one reviewer put it, a “Great Read”.
