DID YOU KNOW?
These impending events have been an enormous research and education process. Discovery has taken on a completely new meaning. It’s like the Bob Seger lyrics’ “I Wish I Didn’t Know Now What I Didn’t Know Then”. The more we dig in to the origins and happenings of global finance the more frightening it becomes. One truly can’t comprehend the depths of how sinister the power beings of this world really are. We the public, as a rule, wander through life oblivious of how we are manipulated and controlled. Who knows, maybe it’s for the better you don’t know. I think our nature is explained by Plato in his forward writing. It is written as a dialogue between Plato's brother Glaucon and his mentor Socrates
‘The Allegory of The Cave’
The ‘Allegory Of The Cave’ is a theory put forward by Plato, concerning human perception. Plato claimed that knowledge gained through the senses is no more than opinion and that, in order to have real knowledge, we must gain it through philosophical reasoning.
‘The Allegory of the Cave’ by Plato
In the Allegory of the Cave, Plato distinguishes between people who mistake sensory knowledge for the truth and people who really do see the truth. It goes like this:
Imagine a cave, in which there are three prisoners. The prisoners are tied to some rocks, their arms and legs are bound and their head is tied so that they cannot look at anything but the stonewall in front of them.
These prisoners have been here since birth and have never seen outside of the cave.
Behind the prisoners is a fire, and between them is a raised walkway.
People outside the cave walk along this walkway carrying things on their head including; animals, plants, wood and stone.
So, imagine that you are one of the prisoners. You cannot look at anything behind or to the side of you – you must look at the wall in front of you.
When people walk along the walkway, you can see shadows of the objects they are carrying cast on to the wall.
If you had never seen the real objects ever before, you would believe that the shadows of objects were ‘real.’
Plato suggests that the prisoners would begin a ‘game’ of guessing which shadow would appear next.
If one of the prisoners were to correctly guess, the others would praise him as clever and say that he were a master of nature.
One of the prisoners then escapes from their bindings and leaves the cave.
He is shocked at the world he discovers outside the cave and does not believe it can be real.
As he becomes used to his new surroundings, he realizes that his former view of reality was wrong.
He begins to understand his new world, and sees that the Sun is the source of life and goes on an intellectual journey where he discovers beauty and meaning
He sees that his former life, and the guessing game they played, is useless.
The prisoner returns to the cave, to inform the other prisoners of his findings.
They do not believe him and threaten to kill him if he tries to set them free.
The Allegory of the cave by Plato should not be taken at face value. One should try to have a deeper understanding of the meaning of the theory. You can then use these to think about criticisms and then to form your own opinion.
In Plato’s theory, the cave represents people who believe that knowledge comes from what we see and hear in the world – empirical evidence. The cave shows that believers of empirical knowledge are trapped in a ‘cave’ of misunderstanding.
The Shadows represent the perceptions of those who believe empirical evidence ensures knowledge. If you believe that what you see should be taken as truth, then you are merely seeing a shadow of the truth. In Plato’s opinion you are a ‘pleb’ if you believe this (their insult for those who are not Philosophers)!
The Game represents how people believe that one person can be a ‘master’ when they have knowledge of the empirical world. Plato is demonstrating that this master does not actually know any truth, and suggesting that it is ridiculous to admire someone like this.
The escaped prisoner represents the Philosopher, who seeks knowledge outside of the cave and outside of the senses.
The Sun represents philosophical truth and knowledge
His intellectual journey represents a philosopher's journey when finding truth and wisdom
The other prisoners' reaction to the escapee returning represents that people are scared of knowing philosophical truths and do not trust philosophers.
As an individual, questions have to be asked ? Are you chained to a chair and make decisions based on perceived beliefs gained from shadows or do you escape your chains and search for the light of truths? And if you are lucky enough to realize you been fooled and escape the cave, what type of person will you become? Will you continue on your journey of truth and leave those in the dark behind to fend and discover for themselves or will you return to the cave and free and educate those left behind?
In my humble opinion, depending on the truth you are searching for, truth can be a very fierce awakening and scary. We all find it very hard to change our perceptions and accept the truth when it is contrary to the beliefs we have been fed our entire life.

FIRST A LARGE THANK YOU TO ALL THAT HAVE HELPED THIS LAST WEEKS TO GET US THROUGH THE VERY TOUGH TIMES RIGHT NOW. IT IS NOT OVER BUT WILL BE HOPEFULLY OVER THIS COMING WEEK WITH THE FIRST FUNDS FLOWING NOT ONLY TO OUR EFFORT BUT TO ALL THE OTHER SIMILAR EFFORTS ALL AROUND THE GLOBE.
I HAVE SPOKEN WITH A FEW OTHERS THAT ARE PERFORMING THE SAME EFFORT AND ALL REPORT THAT THEIR FUNDS ARE ALSO ON THE WAY. SOME ARE DEPENDENT ON THE RV, AND SOME ARE FUNDED DIRECTLY BY THE TRUSTS AND FOUNDATIONS THAT ARE DISTRIBUTING THE PRIMARY FUNDS FOR THE RECONSTRUCTION PROJECTS.
THERE IS NO DOUBT ANYMORE THAT THESE EFFORTS ARE GOING TO BE FUNDED AND BEGIN THIS NEXT PHASE OF OUR EVOLUTION. COMPASSION AND LOVE ARE KEY WORDS THAT DESCRIBE THE ESSENCE OF THE PARADIGM SHIFT, AND THAT IS JUST TOO COOL FOR WORDS.
WE ARE OF COURSE IN THE FINAL STAGES OF PREPARING FOR THE WORK AHEAD, AND FORTUNATELY THE OFFICES WE WANT ARE STILL AVAILABLE FOR LEASE AFTER ALL THESE YEARS – GO FIGURE THEY WERE KEPT EMPTY ALL THIS TIME. PERHAPS THE UNIVERSE CONSPIRED TO HAVE US HAVE THOSE OFFICES AFTER ALL.
THE SERVICE DIVISIONS ARE JUST BEGINNING AND WILL TAKE TIME TO PROPERLY GET SET UP BUT THESE WILL ENSURE THE SUCCESS OF THE PROJECT. YOU CAN NOT IMAGINE THE JOY I FEEL TO HAVE THESE ELEMENTS COME TO LIFE AND PERFORM GOOD WORKS FOR ALL OF US.
THE WAY WE ARE STRUCTURED IS VERY IMPORTANT TO THE DELIVERY OF SERVICE. WE ARE NOT PROFIT ORIENTED, BUT RATHER PEOPLE ORIENTED SO THE MONEY BECOMES A SECONDARY ITEM AND A MAJOR TOOL TO PERFORM THE SERVICE FOR PEOPLE, NOT THIS FALSE GOD CALLED MONEY.
IN THE CONTINUING SUPPORT OF THE TRUTH IN MATTERS, I RE-PUBLISH IMPORTANT INFORMATION THAT WE ALL MUST KNOW ABOUT THE HISTORY OF OUR CIVILIZATION’S FINANCIAL SHENANIGANS WHICH AFFECT EVERYBODY ON THIS PLANET. THE INFORMATION FROM JUDGE ANNA VON REITZ ARE ACCURATE AND LAY OUT THE LANDSCAPE WE ARE IN.
By Anna Von Reitz
Remember when I exposed the fact that Carpetbagger Courts were established in the South following the so-called Civil War?
In May of 1865, the Territorial United States Congress created ten new military district courts in the South, and placed them under the command of Brigadier Generals who were charged with appointing civilian judges--- judges loyal to the North, whose main job was to plunder and pillage whatever was left in the South, and to suppress any remaining rebels to ensure the public peace....
So what happened to those courts?
These military district courts are still with us today and still being deliberately confused with Territorial District Courts that have been improperly ensconced on our soil, too.
Remember the discussion about different entities all being called "United States" and the confusions that result?
There is is original entity dba The United States established by The Unanimous Declaration of Independence. Then, there is the federal United States dba the United States that is supposed to be exercising the delegated powers enumerated by the 1787 Constitution--- but thanks to the "Civil War"--- isn't.
Remember that our National-level States of States dba The State of Georgia, The State of Ohio, The State of Wisconsin, et alia, were all moth-balled and their assets converted into trusts dba Georgia State, Ohio State, Wisconsin State.... and Territorial States of State dba the State of Georgia, the State of Ohio, the State of Wisconsin slipped into place like cuckoo birds stealing a nest.
So the actual federal "United States" that is supposed to be exercising the delegated powers has been "held in abeyance" all these years "pending Reconstruction" that was never completed because --- basically --- nobody was told what was going on and nobody knew that this all-important work remained to be done.
Which was just fine with the British Territorial Usurpers.
Remember also that Lincoln bankrupted the original federal United States in 1863, so that in 1865 when all this funny business was going on with the establishment of Military District Courts, this was being done by the British-controlled Territorial United States Congress in receivership.
Read that-- bankruptcy trustees chosen by foreign creditors were running the show and organizing everything so as to expedite collection of debts owed by the federal United States.
These Military District Courts were set up as "debt collection centers" --- not courts.
The federal United States organization provided by the States of America organized under The Articles of Confederation had two distinct capacities described by Dan Meador as "(1) general authority is exercised in the framework of constitutionally delegated powers, and (2) special, limited power is exercised under the territorial clause."
Congress was obliged to abandon the general powers of Article 1 during the Civil War and has continued to operate under the "special, limited powers" ever since.
There is no other possible delegation of power for them to operate under because the actual National-level States of States haven't been restored and the federal United States organization has not been reconstructed.
Now back to the courts and the situation created by the Territorial status of the federal government and the creation by the Territorial United States Congress of the "Military Districts" and the Military District Court System in 1865 for the express purpose of collecting debts (pillaging) and suppressing rebellion:
This whole situation has given rise to two (2) distinct UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURTS, in addition to The District Courts of the United States.
The original United States formed as a result of The Unanimous Declaration of Independence has never been bankrupted and its courts called The District Courts of the United States have never ceased to function. It's only the federal United States which is supposed to be exercising the delegated powers that is Missing in Action.
So the living people -- if they retain their status as living people -- have access to The District Courts of the United States, but if they are "rolled" by the Territorial Usurpers, they can only access one of the two UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT venues.
And they are: UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT (Territorial United States District) and UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT (Military District).
We know that both these COURTS are still functioning because we have found the evidence of them in Department of the Army Manuals and JAG publications as recently as 2015, fully admitting the responsibility of the military for the operations of these Civil War-Era Military District Courts.
So how can you tell which "UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT" is which?
The infamous gold-fringed flag is the only public notice that you are in a private Carpetbagger Military District COURT.
This gold-fringed flag is called the "National Colors" and is
decorative only. This is your only warning that you have entered the twilight zone of international "waters" and false identities and courts operated as debt collection centers.

A Central Banker’s Plan for Your Money
• Elites speak publicly about their plans — but in ways only other elites can understand...
• “The American people are being led like sheep to the slaughter”...
• Then Jim Rickards shows you how elites plan on killing the dollar, led by the IMF... •
May 18, 2018
Jim Rickards calls them “silent dog whistles.”
Through these signals, in the frequencies beyond normal human hearing… elites communicate with each other. Their communications are public. But their language can be so thick, so technical — so innocuous — not one in a hundred can crack it open.
Only the intended audience can penetrate the deeper message within… and that audience is their fellow elites. Hold this information close when you consider the recent “speech” by a certain Benoît Coeuré…
This Coeuré fellow is a grandee of the European Central Bank (ECB).
He dispatched the following message this week at a monetary conference in Geneva, (and we doff our cap to the folks at Phoenix Capital for alerting us to it):
I would like to share some more general thoughts on the role of the central bank’s balance sheet in the economy. My focus will be on central bank liabilities – that is, money created by central banks to be used as a means of payment and store of value…
What distinguishes the discussion today from previous discussions… are three new facts:
The first is that we are seeing a dramatic decline in the demand for cash in some countries, in particular Sweden and Norway.
Let us interrupt briefly to translate this “fact”:
Cash limits our options as central bankers. Private citizens should not be allowed so large a voice in monetary affairs. Besides, no one wants it anyway. The time has come to discard cash altogether, as we previously discarded the “barbarous relic,” gold.
Pardon our manners, Monsieur Coeuré. Please continue.
The second is that central banks today could make use of new technologies that would enable the introduction of what is widely referred to as a “token-based” currency – one based on a distributed ledger technology (DLT) or comparable cryptographic technology.
Once again, we must break in. The unvarnished message:
Cryptocurrencies are a threat to our control of the monetary system. Unacceptable. We cannot stop the technology, so we must co-opt it. We must ensure that the masses can only use authorized cryptocurrency — ours, that is. We must ban all rival cryptocurrencies.
Please... proceed, sir.
And the third “new” fact, at least from a long-term perspective, relates to the role of central banks in setting monetary policy, and more recently to the emergence of negative rates as a policy instrument and the consequences for the transmission of monetary policy.
The problem comes back to cash. No one will pay the bank to hold their cash, so the masses would withdraw their money from the banking system. Cash therefore prevents us from employing truly negative interest rates. In consequence, cash must go. Once all money is digital, we’ll completely capture the monetary system and can make negative interest rates a reality.
Out of kindness… we spare you the remainder.
Perhaps you think we overweigh an obscure talk by some two-bit corporal of a banker.
But this Coeuré is no understrapper.
There are only six members on the ECB’s Executive Board — the board that sets policy.
Coeuré is one of them.
As Phoenix Capital sizes him:
There are fewer than 100 people on the planet who are as familiar with how central banks perceive the risks in today’s financial system as well as the policies said central banks will unleash when the next crisis hits.
And the implication:
Put simply… discussions of ending physical cash and introducing strictly digital money are taking place within the highest circles of central bankers.
The war on cash.
Jim Rickards has been up on his rooftop, hollering about it for years now.
His message is simply — but deeply — this:
The elites must ban cash so they can herd us all into the “digital pens.”
Only then can they unleash the negative interest rates they believe are necessary to repair a sick economy.
And you, fellow American, are among the flock:
This is of course part of the war on cash. The American people are being led like sheep to the slaughter. They’re being herded into digital pens, which are the banks.
It will not happen at once.
The resistance is too heavy in the center.
These elites intend rather to outflank and surround the sheep, to cut off all escape routes.
Then when the next crisis strikes, it’s off to the digital pen… to be sheared.

to learn about the IMF’s plan to replace the dollar with its own digital money… and what it means for you. Jim says it could happen within months.
Then read on. Jim goes into much greater detail about the elite’s plans to replace the dollar with digital money.
Managing editor, The Daily Reckoning
Editor’s note: Jim Rickards recently wrote an urgent letter to President Trump warning him of a secret plan by monetary elites.
Its target is the American dollar. And the plan could unfold as early as July 1, if not sooner.
Thanks to Jim’s contacts, he’s gathered internal documents that PROVE global elites are preparing to put this plan in motion.
Go here for the proof, and to see why it’s urgent you take specific actions before it goes into effect.

How Elites Will Kill the Dollar
By Jim Rickards
Over the last couple of years I’ve been all over TV, from Fox News to CNBC, CNN and Bloomberg. I’ve been telling our fellow Americans that the financial global elite was planning to issue their own globalist currency called special drawing rights, or SDRs.
And that those elites would use this new currency to replace the U.S. dollar as the global reserve currency.
I’ve even written about this extensively in my best-selling books The Road to Ruin and The New Case for Gold.
I’m sure some people in the mainstream media thought I was out of line — but the United Nations and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) have both confirmed this plan to replace the U.S. dollar is real.
I’ve made this warning many times, but it seems to be falling on deaf ears. Here’s the proof that the U.S. dollar is under attack, right in front of our eyes:
The UN said we need “a new global reserve system… that no longer relies on the United States dollar as the single major reserve currency.”
And the IMF admitted they want to make “the special drawing right (SDR) the principal reserve asset in the [International Monetary System].”
And the IMF has advanced their plan by helping private institutions, such as the UK’s Standard Chartered Bank, issue bonds in SDRs.
This is all happening. And this trend to replace the U.S. dollar will accelerate. The global elite is attempting to implement a major change to the plumbing of our financial system.
It’s a brand-new worldwide banking system called Distributed Ledger Technology. And it will have a huge impact on seniors who are now preparing for retirement.
When this system goes live, many nations will be able to dump the U.S. dollar for SDRs.
For now, the U.S. dollar is still the world’s reserve currency. Other nations have to hold and use the U.S. dollar for international trade, instead of their own currencies.
This creates a virtually unlimited demand for U.S. dollars, which allows us to print trillions of dollars each year to pay for wars, debt and anything we want. It keeps our country operating.
Now, we can see that the global elites are working to unseat the U.S. dollar as the global reserve currency.
Here are the three key pieces of information that prove this will happen.
Fact #1 — The IMF issues a globalist currency called special drawing rights, or SDRs.
Fact #2 — The IMF has confirmed they want to replace the U.S. dollar with SDRs.
Fact #3 — The IMF has confirmed Distributed Ledgers can be used for “currency substitution”… and they’ve even set up a special task force to speed up implementation.
The IMF is using this technology to create an SDR payment system, because that’s the currency they issue.
As you know, Christine Lagarde, head of the IMF, is the woman in the middle. When asked about the task force, she said:
“As I see it, all this amounts to a brave new world for the financial sector.”
Yes, a brave new world where the dollar is no longer the world reserve currency. Barbara C. Matthews, a former U.S. Treasury Department attaché to the European Union, has reached the same conclusion.
She said the link between the globalists’ currency and Distributed Ledgers “is impossible to avoid.”
And that “the IMF seems to be exploring the possibility of permitting a broader use of [their globalist currency] beyond internal transactions among member central banks.”
Make no mistake, if the IMF is planning to use Distributed Ledgers to replace the U.S. dollar with SDRs. And just to be clear, when SDRs take over, the American people will be left with devalued dollars.
Once other nations start accumulating the globalist currency through Distributed Ledgers, they will no longer need to hold dollars. Once Distributed Ledgers go live, other nations will no longer need to buy Treasury bonds.
And that means our government will no longer be able to finance its normal operations, including welfare programs like Social Security. For those who have their retirement account parked in stocks, they could watch it evaporate. The weakest companies in the stock market could collapse once this plan goes live.
Just look what happened the last time we had a big change in our global financial system.
In 1971, Nixon announced the U.S. would no longer officially trade dollars for gold. That created a lot of uncertainties, turning that decade into a nightmare for stock investors.
The Dow Jones, an index of “stable” blue chip stocks (the kind most retirees like to hold), was cut in half. Stock investors bailed out of the market and, for the most part, didn’t come back for a decade.
I expect something similar once Distributed Ledgers go live. The transition from a U.S. dollar system to a new system dominated by SDRs will be messy. Stocks will collapse… and will stay down.
There will be no recovery this time, because the U.S. government won’t be able to come to the rescue like they did in 2008. It won’t even have funding for normal operations, let alone enough funds to save stock investors.
I know that governments have been patiently watching Distributed Ledger (often referred to as blockchain) technology develop and grow outside their control for the past nine years.
Libertarian supporters of Distributed Ledgers celebrate this lack of government control.
Yet, their celebration is premature, and their belief in the sustainability of powerful systems outside government control is naïve. Governments don’t like competition especially when it comes to money. We’ve already seen governments around the world cracking down on cryptocurrencies like bitcoin.
Governments cannot stop Distributed Ledger technology — in fact they don’t want to. Governments and monetary elites want to control it using powers of regulation, taxation, and investigation.
Perhaps most portentously, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has weighed in. In a special report dated June 2017, the IMF had this to say about blockchain:
“Distributed ledger technology (DLT), in particular, could spur change in the financial sector. …. DLT can be categorized as “permissionless” or “permissioned” depending on who can participate in the consensus-driven validation process. Permissionless DLTs allow anyone to read, transact on, and participate in the validation process. These open schemes (that underlie Bitcoin, for instance) could be very disruptive if successfully implemented. By contrast, in permissioned DLTs, the validation process is controlled by a pre-selected group of participants (“consortium”) or managed by one organization (“fully-private”), and thus serve more as a common communications platform.” (emphasis added).
IMF releases require expert translation because they are never written in plain English, and the real meaning is always hidden between the lines. But, the thrust of this report language is clear.
The IMF favors “permissioned” systems over “open schemes.” The IMF also favors control by a “pre-selected group of participants” or “one organization,” rather than allowing “anyone” to participate.
This paper should be viewed as the first step in the IMF’s plan to migrate its existing form of world money, the special drawing right or SDR, onto a DLT platform controlled by the IMF. In time, all other forms of money would be banned.
These and other developments all point toward an elite group including the IMF, JPMorgan, the Davos crowd, the IRS, SEC and other agencies converging to shut down the existing free-wheeling blockchain ecosphere, and replace it with a “permissioned” system under “consortium” control.
This is the global financial elites’ plan to remove the U.S. dollar from its position of power.
OF COURSE ALL THIS INFORMATION IS VERY ALARMING BUT IF EVERYBODY STANDS STRAIGHT AND GIVES RESISTANCE TO THESE PLANS, THEY WOULD EVAPORATE. THE QUESTION IS ONLY WHAT KIND OF PRESSURE OR REBUTTAL CAN BE GIVEN IN THE FACE OF SUCH A GARGANTUAN GLOBAL EFFORT TO KEEP THE LITTLE GUY DOWN AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.
REGARDLESS OF THE POLITICAL MACHINATIONS, OUR EFFORT WILL MOVE FORWARD AS THE ONLY THING WE ARE CONCERNED WITH IS THE RECONSTRUCTION PROJECT SIDE, AND POLITICS WILL COME AND GO AS WE HAVE SEEN, BUT THE GLOBAL EFFORT TO HELP OTHERS REMAINS A ROCK IN THIS SEA OF DECEPTIONS.
I HOPE THIS NEWS IS INFORMATIVE AND USEFUL TO YOU AS THE OTHERS HAVE BEEN. I AGAIN THANK EVERYBODY FOR THEIR TREMENDOUS HELP, AND WE ALL VERY MUCH LOOK FORWARD TO GETTING THE WORK STARTED.
LOVE AND LIGHT
IN OUR SERVICE
