|John Adams Quote|
Banks have done more injury to the religion, morality, tranquility, prosperity, and even wealth of the nation than they can have done or ever will do good.
|The first public act of Jesus' ministry was the miracle of changing water to wine. The second public act of Jesus was a miracle too; He dislodged the moneychangers from religion (temple). |
Watch Him in do it!
Now do you see what we are up against and what we will probably have to do to remove today's moneychangers from controlling our world?
Watch Iceland lead the way.

New lessons from Iceland are bursting forth every day. Those people in Reykjavik really showed us how to throw out a criminal regime, and all across Europe-- France, Britain, Spain, Portugal, Greece (plus so many more)
Are WE the next to fall?
Remember my Rule No. 1
BANKRUPT REGIMES FALL! This Rule is absolute in all recorded history-- there are NO EXCEPTIONS.
'We have to wake up the government that seems to be fast asleep,'

Like a swarm of locusts the bankers came-- and they ate everything.
Last Thursday, Prime Minister Geir Haarde confidently announced that his government was "fully functional" and his ruling coalition intact. A sure sign of trouble-- whenever politicians or banksters tell us things like that, WATCH OUT.
Well, Haarde's car got pelted by eggs and cans Thursday night in the latest of Iceland's steady stream of riots, and the courageous PM quickly rethought his position. On Friday, Haarde said he would quit
More than 6,000 demonstrators stood outside Iceland's parliament on Saturday, dismissing the Prime Minister's promise to resign and demanding that the Haarde government step down immediately.
"How is it possible to sit at home and not protest against the complete misuse of power we have had to suffer as a nation?
Everything is useful which contributes to fix us in the principles and practice of virtue. When any signal act of charity or of gratitude, for instance, is presented either to our sight or imagination, we are deeply impressed with its beauty and feel a strong desire in ourselves of doing charitable and grateful acts also. On the contrary, when we see or read of any atrocious deed, we are disgusted with its deformity and conceive an abhorrence of vice. Now every emotion of this kind is an exercise of our virtuous dispositions; and dispositions of the mind, like limbs of the body, acquire strength by exercise. But exercise produces habit, and in the instance of which we speak, the exercise being of the moral feelings, produces a habit of thinking and acting virtuously." --Thomas Jefferson to Robert Skipwith, 1771.

"where wrong has been done, he who knows and conceals the doer of it makes himself an accomplice, and justly censurable as such."

WHY THE AMERICAN PEOPLE MUST BE DISARMED
Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretence, raised in the United States. A military force, at the command of Congress, can execute no laws, but such as the people perceive to be just and constitutional; for they will possess the power, and jealousy will instantly inspire the inclination, to resist the execution of a law which appears to them unjust and oppressive. ~ Noah Webster
Self-Interest and Morality
"Egoism, in a broader sense, has been... presented as the source of moral action. It has been said that we feed the hungry, clothe the naked, bind up the wounds of the man beaten by thieves, pour oil and wine into them, set him on our own beast and bring him to the inn, because we receive ourselves pleasure from these acts... These good acts give us pleasure, but how happens it that they give us pleasure?
Because nature hath implanted in our breasts a love of others, a sense of duty to them, a moral instinct, in short, which prompts us irresistibly to feel and to succor their distresses...
The Creator would indeed have been a bungling artist had he intended man for a social animal without planting in him social dispositions. It is true they are not planted in every man, because there is no rule without exceptions; but it is false reasoning which converts exceptions into the general rule." --Thomas Jefferson to Thomas Law, 1814. ME 14:141

The United States: A Country Without Mercy
The unfaithful wife retaliated by accusing Strong of rape. There was no evidence of rape, but Strong was deceived into a plea bargain. Once Strong entered a plea, he was double-crossed and given 60 years.

"He who made us would have been a pitiful bungler, if he had made the rules of our moral conduct a matter of science. For one man of science, there are thousands who are not. What would have become of them?
Man was destined for society. His morality, therefore, was to be formed to this object. He was endowed with a sense of right and wrong merely relative to this.
This sense is as much a part of his nature, as the sense of hearing, seeing, feeling; it is the true foundation of morality... The moral sense, or conscience, is as much a part of man as his leg or arm. It is given to all human beings in a stronger or weaker degree, as force of members is given them in a greater or less degree. It may be strengthened by exercise, as may any particular limb of the body.
This sense is submitted indeed in some degree to the guidance of reason; but it is
State a moral case to a ploughman and a professor. The former will
