Why Global Elite Worship “Hamilton”


Alexander Hamilton is known as the champion of a strong Federal Government. His letters on the Constitution, published under the pseudonym “Publius”, were published in New York newspapers and helped sway the state of New York into embracing the new government.

But Hamilton had a dark side. His desire to consolidate power led to the creation of the First National Bank of the United States. History has shown that where there is a monopoly on economic power, there will also be a monopoly on political power.

The First National Bank was that economic monopoly. Even more dangerous, was the fact that the bank itself was privately owned and a “for profit” business for those that were wealthy enough to control its stock.  The US Government was only permitted to hold 20% ownership in the bank. Foreign entities could also own stock. Although they were denied voting rights, they would act through their American proxies, like Hamilton, to make sure their interests went forward.

Acting as the tax collection agent for the Federal Government, the bank further empowered itself to issue currency by leveraging the deposits placed on its books. The primary source of revenue for the Federal Government was taxes on imports, or tariffs. Thus the First National Bank dominated the new nation’s port cities and enriched itself using government tax revenues. These deposits were leveraged into debt instruments that generated unlimited wealth for the bank’s private owners/

The Central Bank existed primarily to profit a small group of Financial Elitists, whose interests were global in scope.

If Hamilton had proposed that 100% of the Bank stock were to be owned by the Federal Government, than only the people of the United States would have been the beneficiaries. and the bank would have led to 200+ years of American Prosperity.

The current Federal Reserve Bank is also privately owned and exists to increase the power of the .001 % of the population. This is Hamilton’s legacy. One that even he would be ashamed of were he alive today.


Romney and Bill Clinton

Why That 4 year Degree in Computers Will Soon be Worthless.

While Hillary and Bill Clinton were busy giving away the United States of America through NAFTA, GATT and China’s most favored Nation Trading Status, Mitt Romney was equally busy filling his pockets at American’s expense.

“Modus Media grew rapidly. In December 1997, it announced it had contracted with Microsoft to produce software and training products at a center in Australia. Modus Media said it was already serving Microsoft from Asian locations in Singapore, South Korea, Japan and Taiwan and in Europe and the United States.

Two years later, Modus Media told the SEC it was performing outsource packaging and hardware assembly for IBM, Sun Microsystems, Hewlett-Packard Co. and Dell Computer Corp. The filing disclosed that Modus had operations on four continents, including Asian facilities in Singapore, Taiwan, China and South Korea, and European facilities in Ireland and France, and a center in Australia.

“Technology companies, in particular, have increasingly sought to outsource the business processes involved in their supply chains,” the filing said. “. . . We offer a range of services that provide our clients with a one-stop shop for their outsource requirements.”

According to a news release issued by Modus Media in 1997, its expansion of outsourcing services took place in close consultation with Bain. Terry Leahy, Modus’s chairman and chief executive, was quoted in the release as saying he would be “working closely with Bain on strategic expansion.” At the time, three Bain directors sat on the corporate board of Modus.

The global expansion that began while Romney was at Bain continued after he left. In 2000, the firm announced it was opening a new facility in Guadalajara, Mexico, and expanding in China, Malaysia, Taiwan and South Korea.” (Source)

“Job loss occurred in all states and the District of Columbia, but given that the trade deficit in computer and electronic parts sector grew the most – and accounted for 39.6 percent of total job losses – the hardest hit state was California, which lost more than 560,000 jobs. The three hardest-hit congressional districts were all in Silicon Valley and among other cities, included Palo Alto, San Jose and Cupertino.” (Source)

The Globalists, like Mitt Romney, Glenn Beck and Hillary Clinton tell us that Free Trade makes American Businesses more competitive in the global marketplace. In reality, it only enriches .01% of the population at the expense of the 99.9% that buy into the lies.

“In Beijing, IT and internet professionals take the top spot. That category consists of web developers, software engineers, and everything in between. They make a median RMB 9,420 (US$1,515) per month. By comparison, the median salary for a web developer in America is US$4,473, according to compensation information firm PayScale. In San Francisco specifically, the monthly wage jumps to US$6,393.”

So, after Americans spend and average of $50,000 on a 4 year degree in computers, if they want to compete in the global marketplace they must agree to a salary of less than $1515 per month. This would bet them far below poverty levels in the United States.

The estimated value of the World’s entire consumer market is 43 trillion dollars. The United States is $11.4 trillion of that 43 trillion. China is 3.3 trillion, one third the size of the US market. Japan is 2.9 trillion. In other words almost 25% of all the worlds consumer products are sold within the borders of the United States.

We don’t need to compete with the rest of the world in a race to the bottom, in an attempt to build the wealth of 1/10 of 1% of the world’s population. They need to compete with us. Tariffs that are wage based would force the greedy Oligarchs to relocate production back into the United States where it belongs.

Of course, such a move would never happen with a Globalist like Hillary Clinton in the White House, or with naive Americans throwing their votes at Mitt Romney’s third party candidates.

Trump is the ONLY candidate that has identified the problem and expressed a willingness to fix it. As a result, he is now opposed by Globalist Republicans and the Oligarch owned media. We can’t afford to listen to their Siren Song any longer. We must Vote Trump.

How Hillary Clinton and Walmart Gutted US Apparel Industry

“At the center of U.S. policy toward China was Hillary Clinton. At this critical time for U.S.- China relations, Bill Clinton gave a number of speeches that were underwritten by the Chinese government and its supporters. These funds were paid to the Clintons’ bank account directly, while Hillary was negotiating with China on behalf of the United States….”

” Bill and Hillary’s foundation has had bank accounts and/or foundation offices in China since at least 2005. Between 2001-2006, Bill Clinton was paid $700,000 for four speeches by Chinese brokerage firm CLSA Asian Markets.” (link)

So What does China get for all that money?

“China is the main source of US apparel imports, producing 36.49% of clothing shipped to the US for sale. The other top nations for clothing imported to the US trail significantly behind China percentage-wise. They are Vietnam (producing 9.4%), Indonesia (7.2%), and Bangladesh (6.7%).” (link)

The US apparel market is worth $225 billion. As the above graph indicates, in 2012, on 2.5% of clothing worn by Americans was made in the United States.

Chinese Tariffs on American made apparel (clothing) ranges from 14-25%. That means that their is a 14-25% tax on American made goods in China. In the United States duties are 0-19%.

So, what is the problem? Our Tariffs don’t reflect the cheaper labor available to US manufacturers in China, or the government subsidies provided by the Chinese.  Chinese apparel workers are paid $1.26 per hour. In the United States the average hourly wage is $12.65.

If Americans don’t want to compete against cheap foreign labor than the tariff (tax) on imports needs to be raised to reflect the wage disparity. In other words, to protect American made goods we need to raise tariffs by a much larger margin.

The only people this would effect would be the gross profits of large retailers like Walmart.  “Alice Walton, the daughter of Sam Walton, the founder of the chain of big box stores, gave Mrs. Clinton’s Democratic National Committee Victory Fund $353,000 in December, a contribution just made public last month. Before that she contributed $25,000 to the Ready for Hillary political action committee.”

Hillary Clinton also sat on Walmart’s Board for 6 years. When Hillary has to choose between donations and workers, the choice is easy. The US worker gets screwed.

NAFTA Cost U.S. 56,190 Factories, Made Hillary Clinton a Billionaire

NAFTA Increased the wealth of the top .01% by 400%!

As the above chart shows, Free Trade has been a huge boon for the wealthiest of the wealthy. Its a disaster for the rest of us.

“In the week before Valentine’s Day, United Technologies expressed its love for its devoted Indiana employees, workers whose labor had kept the corporation profitable, by informing 2,100 of them at two facilities that it was shipping their factories, their jobs, their communities’ resources to Mexico.

Three days later, 1,336 workers at Philadelphia’s largest remaining manufacturer, Cardone, learned that company planned to throw them out too and build brake calipers in Mexico instead. Two weeks earlier, a Grand Rapids, Mich., company called Dematic did the same thing to its 300 workers.

No surprise. In the first decade of this century, America lost 56,190 factories, 15 a day.” (Link)

“The president of Carrier, owned by United Technologies, gathered the Indianapolis factory employees, skilled workers who earn an average of $20 an hour, and informed them that the corporation planned to kick them to the curb but expected them to perform to the highest standards until Carrier opened a new plant in Monterrey, Mexico, where workers will be paid $3 an hour.

Carrier President Chris Nelson told the group, “This was an extremely difficult decision.”

Such difficulties for poor, poor United Technologies! It was making a nice profit at its Indianapolis and Huntington factories. But it was not the big fat profit it could pocket by paying Mexican workers a mere $3 an hour, providing $3 an hour in health or pension benefits, and doing it all in the nation with the longest work weeks among the 36  countries in the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development.”

As the Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton sought to build on her husband’s NAFTA gains by writing the Trans-Pacific Partnership:

“the TPP would worsen the situation because it would give corporations like United Technologies the option of moving to places like Vietnam where they could pay trafficked workers and child laborers $1 an hour. Or less.

Just like with NAFTA, there’s nothing enforceable in the TPP that would stop the labor abuses. It would facilitate corporations forcing workers from Indianapolis, Philadelphia and Monterrey, Mexico, into competition with 14-year-olds laboring 60-hour-weeks for $1-an-hour in Malaysia.”

No wonder that Hillary Clinton has over 1 billion dollars in her foundation. Screwing over American workers comes with a hefty price-tag, and a great amount of risk.

The Clinton Foundation has actually grown by over 1000% since Obama became president. In 2003, it reported a value of less than 100 million dollars.(Source) Every American should become Secretary of State over Trade Agreements, it seems to be the only place left where you can make a decent buck.

How Hillary Clinton Killed US Manufacturing Jobs

“Donald Trump on Tuesday tied together the policies of President Bill Clinton and his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democratic nominee, in an attack on trade policies.

In a speech near Pittsburgh, Trump said the loss of manufacturing jobs has come due to the passage of the North American Free Trade Agreement and China’s entry into the World Trade Organization.

“It was Bill Clinton who signed NAFTA in 1993, and Hillary Clinton who supported it,” according to a text of Trump’s prepared remarks. “It was also Bill Clinton who lobbied for China’s disastrous entry into the World Trade Organization, and Hillary Clinton who backed that terrible agreement.”

Trump also criticized Hillary Clinton as standing by as China “cheated” on its currency and stole intellectual property. She also signed a “job-killing” free-trade deal with South Korea, Trump said.

He further said Clinton would make a “small token change” to the Trans Pacific Partnership and then ram it through approval. Clinton has said she doesn’t support the TPP — which as President Obama’s secretary of state, she helped to negotiate — in its current form.

The Senate has yet to ratify the TPP, though both the House and the Senate passed the fast-track legislation that traditionally presages passage.

Trump says, if elected, he would withdraw the U.S. from the TPP, as well as renegotiate NAFTA. And if he is not able to renegotiate NAFTA, Trump says he’d withdraw from it.”

Trump is Ross Perot on steroids. Hillary is a Bush hybrid, bent on destroying the American Dream in favor of the world’s wealthiest oligarchs. The Clinton Foundation is her political and financial pay-off, with much its wealth coming from those that have plundered these United States.

“Wealth inequality in the US is at near record levels according to a new study by academics. Over the past three decades, the share of household wealth owned by the top 0.1% has increased from 7% to 22%. For the bottom 90% of families, a combination of rising debt, the collapse of the value of their assets during the financial crisis, and stagnant real wages have led to the erosion of wealth.”

Clinton campaigns for the poor, while picking their pockets clean through policies that have exported their jobs to increase corporate profits. Hillary Clinton is playing whats left of the Democratic Party for a sucker.

Thanks for the Air Pollution Bill and Hillary!

Utah’s Clean Coal Rip-off and Clinton’s Gift to Communist China

(Your Money Spreads the News!)

Grand Staircase Escalante was made a National Monument by the Clintons. Not for the reasons you would think.

Clinton created the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument to close the largest anthracite coal field in the nation along the Kaiparowitz Plateau in Kane County, Utah. The Kentucky-based Andalux Resources coal company held leases on the 3,400 acre coal field which contains about 7 billion tons of low sulfur anthracite coal worth $1.5 trillion in 1996 dollars. When Clinton nationalized 1/7th of Utah, he killed 1,000 jobs and about $50 million in payroll dollars per year going into Kane County. Working class Utahans lost their livelihood, but Clinton paid his expected quid pro quo to a foreigner who could not legally donate money to Clinton’s political campaign.

This was no gift to the environmentalists.  Low sulfer, anthracite coal is the cleanest burning coal their is on the planet. Coal is responsible for 33% of U.S energy production. It also known as the major source of pollution in the United States. Anthracite coal is only .2% of all US Coal production.

“Subbituminous: Generally used for electricity generation, subbituminous coal contains 35% to 45% carbon. A major component of U.S. coal production, subbituminous coal makes up 47% of U.S. coal production by weight and 41% by energy intensity. Although subbituminous coal has the second lowest energy content, large quantities are found in thick beds near the surface, resulting in low mining cost and, correspondingly, lower prices. Wyoming produces the vast majority of subbituminous coal in the U.S.

Bituminous: Containing the widest range of carbon content (45% to 86%), bituminous is mainly used as a fuel to generate electricity, though some is used as coking coal to produce steel. The oldest and most abundant coal type found in the United States, bituminous coal makes up 45% of U.S. coal production by weight and 54% by energy intensity. West Virginia leads production, followed by Kentucky and Pennsylvania.

Lignite: Lignite has the lowest energy content of the four types. It is used in electricity generation and comprises 7% of U.S. coal production by weight and 5% by energy intensity. Lignite coal is typically comprised of coal deposits which have had the least amount of heat, pressure, and time to develop. As a result, lignite has a low carbon content (25% to 35%). Texas and North Dakota are the main producers of lignite.

Anthracite: Anthracite has the highest carbon content (86% to 97%). Rare in the U.S., it comprises only 0.2% of total coal production. All the anthracite mines in the U.S. are located in northeast Pennsylvania.

Seven Billion Tons of Anthracite Coal. In 2013 the United States used less than 1 million tons of coal. So, the Anthracite at Grand Stairway Escalante was enough to last this country almost 7,000 years!!!  Anthracite Coal, by the way, is virtually smoke and emission free. Pollution problem solved.

Of course, when the Clintons sold their souls to the Communist Chinese, and their alleged front company, the Lippo Group, they also sold out the people of Utah and the United States. The coal in Utah was allegedly Lippo’s only real clean coal competition. In just one example:

“According to the ENERGY ECONOMIST for Sept., 1994, Entergy Group of Little Rock, in partnership with the Lippo Group of Hong Kong, signed a memorandum of understanding with the North China Power Corporation for the cooperative management and expansion of the $1 billion 1,200 megawatt coal-fired Daton 2 power plan in Shanxi Province.”

The Communist Chinese own the Clintons, and through them, they own a great part of our pollution problems her in the United States.



Elon Musk and the Dream of Low Cost Energy

Elon Musk 2015.jpg

Elon Musk has an estimated net worth of US$12.7 billion, making him the 83rd wealthiest person in the world.

Elon Musk is not about money, he is about building the impossible.

“Musk has stated that the goals of SolarCity, Tesla Motors, and SpaceX revolve around his vision to change the world and humanity. His goals include reducing global warming through sustainable energy production and consumption, and reducing the “risk of human extinction” by “making life multiplanetary” by setting up a human colony on Mars.

He has envisioned a high-speed transportation system known as the Hyperloop, and has proposed a VTOL supersonic jet aircraft with electric fan propulsion, known as the Musk electric jet.” (Link)

The South African made his first $500 by selling a video game at age 12 called “Blastar”.

After attending enough college to realize the limited value of higher education, Musk founded Zip2 with his brother. “Zip2 was Elon’s vision of an online yellow pages. It began as a code that Elon came up with that provided directions across the Bay Area, which was then pitched door to door by the Musk brothers and a small salesman team.”

“The venture capital firm Mohr Davidow ventures caught wind of two south african boys building a yellow pages for the internet and ended up investing around $3 million. This is one of the decisions Elon regrets to this date, as he was soon pushed down to the role of a CTO. This investment, though, really sparked the organisation to life, as it moved onto a national scope, from just the Bay Area.” (Source)

“With the infusion of new capital, the business model also transitioned. Instead of selling door to door, Zip2 started creating a software package that could be sold to newspapers, which would in turn build their own directories for real estate, auto dealers etc.

The organisation was acquired by Compaq/Alta Vista/CMGi in 1999. Mohr Davidow came away with the highest profits, making around 20 times its original investment. Elon and his brother Kimbal, made $22 million and $15 million respectively.” (Ibid)

“In March 1999, Musk co-founded, an online financial services and e-mail payment company, with US$10 million from the sale of Zip2. One year later, the company merged with Confinity, which had a money transfer service called PayPal. The merged company focused on the PayPal service and was renamed PayPal in 2001. PayPal’s early growth was driven mainly by a viral marketing campaign where new customers were recruited when they received money through the service.[50] Musk was ousted in October 2000 from his role as CEO (although he remained on the board) due to disagreements with other company leadership, notably over his desire to move PayPal’s Unix-based infrastructure to Microsoft Windows. In October 2002, PayPal was acquired by eBay for US$1.5 billion in stock, of which Musk received US$165 million. Before its sale, Musk, who was the company’s largest shareholder, owned 11.7% of PayPal’s shares.”

But the accumulation of wealth for wealth’s sake wasn’t what motivated Musk, he was a dreamer and a builder, much like his idol Nikola Tesla. In fact, he donated $1 million to a museum dedicated to the inventor. Much like Tesla, Musk is a threat to the status quo.

It comes back to oil and energy. Tesla invented “free energy” for the masses. Musk is working on making cheaper energy more available to the general public. Tesla focused on electricity from electro-magnetic fields that occur naturally. Musk seems determined to combine solar energy with electricity to power our modern lifestyle.

Like Tesla before him, those that seek profit over progress have done their best to limit the innovations of Elon Musk.

“Started a decade ago by Tesla Motors Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk and two of his cousins, Lyndon and Peter Rive, SolarCity has brought renewable energy to the masses in more than a dozen states, generating about $350 million in annual revenue. The company designs, installs, and leases rooftop solar systems at prices that allow homeowners to save on their monthly power bills—and fight climate change along the way. For a 20-year commitment, SolarCity will set customers up with panels for no money down. After starting in California and expanding to Arizona and Oregon, SolarCity began selling in Nevada in 2014 and quickly became the state’s leading installer of rooftop panels.” (Source)

But the new technology requires government co-operation to move to the masses.

“SolarCity’s success is partly because the government provides subsidies and enables an arrangement called net metering, which allows homeowners with panels to sell back to the grid any solar energy they don’t use. This helps offset their cost of power when the sun’s not shining. Like more than 40 other U.S. states, Nevada forces utilities to buy the excess energy at rates set by regulators—usually the same rate utilities charge (hence, the net in net metering). In Nevada, it’s worked well. So well, in fact, that NV Energy, the state’s largest utility, is fighting it with everything it’s got.” (Ibid)

“First, NV Energy deployed its lobbyists to limit the total amount of energy homeowners and small businesses were allowed to generate to 3 percent of peak capacity for all utilities. Then it expertly argued its case before regulators, who rewrote the rules for net-metering customers. In December it scored a major win: Nevada’s Public Utilities Commission (PUC) imposed rules that not only make it more expensive to go solar, but also make it uneconomical for those who’ve already signed up. Similar regulatory skirmishes are playing out in dozens of other states, but no other has gone as far as Nevada to undermine homeowners who’ve already installed solar arrays.” (Ibid)

NV Energy is a Berkshire Hathaway Company which is owned and managed by Warren Buffet. Old energy vs new energy, all through the process of lobbying politicians and limiting competition by decree.

If blacksmiths had this kind of power, Henry Ford would have never got his Model T off the ground.


Judge Makes Illegal Ruling Before Resigning from RICO Case


Judge David Mortensen


You may feel that when you go before a Judge, you are entitled to unbiased decision making that won’t violate the law, or your Constitutional Rights. However, when you challenge a lawyer for unethical and potentially illegal behavior in Utah County, it really is you against them.

That is the definition of a conspiracy.

Under Utah’s RICO Act it specifically states:

The  court may not enter any order that would amount to a prior restraint on the exercise of an  affected party’s rights under the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, or  Article I, Sec. 15 of the Utah Constitution.

For those that don’t know, the 1st Amendment of the US Constitution is Freedom of Speech and the Press.  In other words, NO GAG ORDERS!

Here is the Utah Constitution:

Article I, Section 15 [Freedom of speech and of the press — Libel.]
No law shall be passed to abridge or restrain the freedom of speech or of the press. In all criminal prosecutions for libel the truth may be given in evidence to the jury; and if it shall appear to the jury that the matter charged as libelous is true, and was published with good motives, and for justifiable ends, the party shall be acquitted; and the jury shall have the right to determine the law and the fact.

Yet, that didn’t stop Judge David Mortensen from Signing off on a Motion to classify the case against Kelly Peterson and Alyssa Allanis (Case#160400590) as private, right before resigning from the case.

This by itself is grounds for the Feds to step in. Yet, adding to his questionable behavior, the same Judge signed off on the Order before the Plaintiffs even had a chance to respond to the request! Immediately after it was filed!

After being challenged on this gross miscarriage of justice, Judge Mortensen revoked his ruling, let the Plaintiffs respond, and then resigned from the case!

Judge Mortensen is the PRESIDING Judge over the entire 4th District Court! No one knows why he resigned from the Case. Normally, it denotes a conflict of interest.



Is Donald Trump a Successful Businessman?

In politics, opponents like to emphasize the negative and ignore the positive. Now we see Donald Trump being lambasted for his business failings. What most people that never built a business don’t realize, is that you must fail your way to the top.

Take Warren Buffet, who lost $200 billion dollars when he bought a company called Berkshire Hathaway. At the time Berkshire Hathaway was a textile Mill.

And then there is Mitt Romney, arch-nemesis of Donald Trump who saw 22% of Bain Capital’s investments go bankrupt while he was its leader. As one researcher put it: “Trump has 515 subsidiary companies that he owns. Trump has also had more successful companies than just those 515 that he has sold, but let’s just use that number anyway. So at most Trump has had around 9 failed or bankrupt businesses, that puts his success rate at 98.3%.”

The reality is that 90% of new start-ups fail. So anyone with an 11% success rate starting companies is above average. Its the perils of a global marketplace where it can take months or years to get a product into production, after the demand for it has disappeared.

Trump is successful because he sticks to his core business, which is Real Estate,

“The majority of Trump’s fortune is derived from real-estate holdings that include a partnership with Vornado Realty Trust in Manhattan’s 1290 Sixth Ave. and 555 California St. in San Francisco; resorts such as the Mar-a-Lago and Trump Doral resorts in Florida; and Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue in New York, according to the Bloomberg index. Other properties include Turnberry in Scotland and Doonbeg in Ireland, both golf courses.” (Bloomberg)

The great thing about golf courses is that they can be easily turned into housing developments. Bloomberg estimates Trump’s wealth at 2.6 billion. Not where Berkshire Hathaway is, but hardly a failure.

In the end, business success is measured by an increase in net worth, not by failures or successes. As long as you are worth more this year than last year, you are successful.

Is AXXA Global Putting Your Credit Data at Risk?


In response to our investigative journalism on Axxa Global and its seemingly abhorrent manufacturing conditions we expected them to send over the photos we requested to dispute the items in the article.

Instead, their shady response was an email sent out to their distributors that rambled on about things that left us mostly confused. To add to that confusion their CEO claimed he cannot contact us. We are confused because we have a Contact Link, fully functional, at the top of our website.

Their website at on the other hand, lets the user know that it is not a very safe place to be. We received a warning that the site was not secure and neither was our information.

So, it appears that not only does AXXA have substandard manufacturing, but they are also putting people’s credit card information at risk from hackers. Considering what happened to Do Terra’s database, this is a very real threat to your personal information.

Caveat Emptor  (Buyer Beware)

Danny Pang owes all of us an explanation and pictures of his current manufacturing facility with his products clearly labelled. After which, he needs to resign and crawl back under whatever rock he crawled out from.

Send pictures Danny Pang, not excuses. We will be more than happy to publish them
