Hi everyone my name is Khummit Hatshepsitu, Special K- don’t let the name fool you I was born and raised right here in North Philadelphia. Were you glued to the television last night looking at the debate between Vice President Joe Biden and Congressman Ryan? It was great I just wanted Vice President Biden and President Obama to answer the constant and consistent statement both Ryan and Romney kept saying there are 23 million people out of work with “if your special interests friends stop exporting jobs out of the country maybe there would be 23 million jobs that would be filled.” I am writing this little piece because there have been a lot of people telling me they really don’t know if they are going to vote or even if they really want to vote. I am 62 years young and I remember when my family moved to North Philly near 29th and Lehigh Aves. There were still Jewish people living there at the time and it was very beautiful. At that time we lived on a tree lined street with a water plug in the middle of the block which served a few purposes. If there was a fire the firemen could use the water plug to put out the fire. During the summer the children could cool off under the water plug on the real hot days. More importantly there were plenty of jobs, we lived not far from what was called “Garment Square”. Botany 500 was on the west side corner of Broad and Lehigh Ave. They made men’s suits and clothes for the country.Right across the street on the east side was Stetson they made hats not only for the country but the world. There were factories all up and down Broad Street to Alleghany Ave. and from 24th and Alleghany all the way to Kensington where clothes were made. We made skirts, blouses, sweaters, in fact Arnold Palmer Sweaters were made right here in Philadelphia in one of those factories where they did piece work. Philadelphia is where there were a lot of firsts we made shoes, boots, tailor made shirts and shoes. The point I want to make is that the reason there are no jobs in this country is the result of a compound effect. Thanks to Mr. Darren Harvey I learned a lot about the compound effect. After President John F. Kennedy was murdered and Lyndon B. Johnson (a closet Republican) took office the jobs began to leave our fair city in a very slow, imperceptible way. They moved the entire textile industry to North Carolina. We used to hear all the time that if you want a good job you had to go down South. After that move to North Carolina they moved the jobs to China. See not only did Nixon devalue the dollar he also opened the door to our manufacturing companies leaving our country and starting over in China for the cheap labor. I want to digress for a moment to say I came from a family that believed in being servants by helping your neighbors and your community. They also supported the unions. My parents worked for Byberry State Hospital my dad was a cook and my mother was a nurse. They helped 1199C by getting signatures of the people who worked there while the union people were in the basement. My parents risked their lives, livelihoods, homes and family like so many others for the unions. See at that time the unions really fought for their members we had a lot of Jimmy Hoffa’s out there. But after a while union officials began sleeping with management, afraid when the management threatened that they were going to take their jobs overseas, they buckled under to management. And they still took their jobs overseas back then just like they are doing now. President Woodrow Wilson said in 1913, “That the manufacturers and capitalists run this country.” They have made the United States government the arm to do what they want to do such as but not limited to starting wars, using the media to tell their side of the story, so they can export terrorism around the world. They are America’s “INTERESTS” who tell us what economic policies the government should employ. These policies are not in the best interests of Americans. President Wilson said “America is a foster child of Special Interests.” Who and what are these Special Interests? Coca Cola, Pepsi, Mrs. Fields Cookies, Target, Walmart, Exxon/Mobile, BP Oil, Chevron, Micro Soft, Apple, Hershey and all the other companies who took their businesses, jobs and money out of this country. See the Compound Effect is an operating system that has effectively destroyed the moral fiber of our country, it has take damn near all your money. Again we have to go back in time so the people in Paul Ryan’s age group can understand how we really got here. In 1971 Nixon took us off the gold standard what that means is up until Nixon our money was backed by gold, but when Nixon devalued our dollar it was backed by air. If he had left it alone we would have been able to pay off our debt. Everything Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are talking about was already tried and done with the same results over and over again. Alexander Hamilton said the same thing he was a proponent for big business. Andrew Mellon became the Treasurer and said the same trickle down effect, he made deep cuts for the rich and ten years later the result was the crash of 1929. When Reagan and the Elder Bush were in office, jobs were still leaving but not with the speed of the younger Bush. It wasn’t until now in 2012 when it’s affecting the Middle Class that we are hearing it’s a problem. The jobs are not coming back the reason all of the businesses are literally running to China, India, Latin, Central and South America and now Afrika is because in China there are 325 Chinese consumers to 1 American consumer who want their products and services. I don’t know about you but I am sick and tired of their shit and as far as I am concerned they can come back and get the rest of their shit and keep it moving. Romney who is running for President has outsourced jobs to other countries. We have to do a reality check and look at what has happened since the Federal reserve hit the scene how many crashes have we had? Just look at what happened in 2008 at the height of the housing crisis, the fed gave Libya $125 million dollars, France and Germany also got paid. Senator Bernie found out about this through the freedom of information act. Not one penny was given to a United States business or family. In 2010, 9 trillion dollars went missing, during the hearings the answers were not forth coming from the people who are supposed to audit the feds activities. There was another article asking where did the $40 million dollars go? The Fed has to go to. In July of 2005, did you know the People’s Bank of China took control of the Fed? Did you know that in an interview on CNN in September of the 2005, it came out that George W. Bush had borrowed money everyday of the year from China, Japan, Britain, Korea and Saudi Arabia? Clinton gave out this information in the interview. Can you imagine the interests that built up from the time he got into office until he left? This was a time for everyone to come together to pull our country out of this hole. Instead Ryan and his racists cohorts were so angry that we had the audacity to put a Black man in the white house they made it their personal mission to make America and Americans suffer. Anytime anything came up to make things better for our country they voted against it. No matter what Obama put on the table they voted it against us as Americans. Right here in Philadelphia, 10 teenagers from West Philadelphia High School made a Super Hybrid Car that did not run off of gas. They used biodiesel fuel. That car could have revolutionized the automobile industry, it could have put America back on the map because everyone in the world would want to buy our cars. Some rich Texan I was told bought the patent so Americans would still be held hostage to the damn oil industry. Can I get some help in telling them to come and get their shit and get out of our country. I am talking about the oilmen from Texas because they are here in Pennsylvania contaminating our water system. We have a real live Erin Brockavich situation with people dying, hair falling out, the horses hair is falling out the people are sick and the EPA a government agency is doing absolutely nothing except bringing them water. They tried to tell the people in Dimock, Pa. that the contaminated dark brown damn near black water was safe to drink. This is what putting 86 toxic chemicals into the earth for fracking will do, KILL the land and soil. Monsanto, another one of America’s special interests, can someone please explain to me how did a company who specializes in germ, biological and chemical warfare become in charge of our food supply?How is Monsanto even allowed to come near our soil with his chemical warfare agents Round up which contained 2,4D and 2,4,5T the same compounds used in Agent Orange until 1985 or 87? Why are pharmaceutical companies allowed to sterilize our daughters and sons under the guise of preventing HPV when everyone knows hpv comes from men not 9 year old little girls? And please explain to me why is a extremely toxic roach pesticide (sodium borate which was banned by the medical industry) in the hpv and flu shots that are given to children?And why is the sterilizing chemical polysorbate 80 which is not to be taken intravenously doing in the hpv and flu vaccines?`I am bringing these tid bits up because the white house needs to be cleaned out. We all voted for President Barack Obama for REAL CHANGE and he did do some things. Our President said when he took office “I cannot do this by myself.” We yes America we left him alone, we cannot make that same mistake again. We cannot get caught up in the smoke and mirrors of a fake boogie man, Syria which is a Christian country, Iran who does not have nuclear weapons. I guess only the only white country in the region can have over 150 nukes in their arsenal. We Afrikan Americans have lost the power to vote, yet our sons and daughters go to fight for other people to have a right to vote. As mothers and wives and girlfriends we have to worry about our men coming home because the new jim crow law say you can kill a Black and Latino man legally and be home for dinner. Yet, we have to hear about someone in another country killing his people. I’m sorry, let me get this right it is okay to legally kill Black people here but these same Black people who can’t vote or have the right to life are supposed to fight for other people to have democracy when we don’t have it here. We voted for an Obama Administration instead we have a Bush/Clinton Administration. We want what we voted for the first time and to get the change we voted for we are going to have to be committed to building.Using the operating system the Compound Effect to get our country back on track beginning with getting that Supercar built ASAP. As Americans we have to take little steps like having a real genuine discussion on RACE. We have to stop supporting companies and businesses that are not here on American soil, we can make our own clothes. There is a seamstress in every neighborhood, there are guys in the hoods all over this country that know how to make computers, chips and mother boards. We can get back to work we just have to get rid of the parasites who have sucked the blood out of our country and our 401k’s and pensions. The next time they take your money you better stalk them until you get every penny back. When we do go to vote we have to commit to save our futures with education not prisons. Four manufacturing companies have relocated to China, that means there is room for us to pool our resources to build our own manufacturing companies throughout the country. If you are like me and want a car that does not need gas, then lets commit to building that sustainable car and nothing and no one is going to get in our way. We are fighting Americans we can get out of this debt we just have to Flip The Script Because Its Time.

We have to unite, organize and get rid of the Federal Reserve bank, it is a private bank that works against the interests of Americans.  Edward Griffin author of "The Creature from Jekyll Island" said he came to the conclusion that the Federal Reserve needed to be abolished for 7 reasons: 1. The Fed is incapable of accomplishing stated goals. 2. It is a cartel operating against the public interest 3. It is the supreme instrument of usury. (they over charge the banks and us with super high interest rates you know predatory lenders). 4. It generates our most unfair tax thru inflation and bailouts 5 It encourages war 6. It destabilizes the economy 7. It discourages private capital formation. See we have allowed our people in government to act without any accountability and this is why we are where we are today.  We have to go back to 1944, according to Joan Veon, author of News with Views, she states, "In 1944 the world's finance ministers met in New Hampshire at a hotel named Bretton Woods where they hammered out a new monetary system for the world which would include setting the value of gold at $35 oz. It also established two new global banking institutions, the World Bank-WB and the International Monetary Fund-IMF, both of which would ultimately work to create a global financial and monetary system to facilitate world wide trade through open borders, thus breaking down the financial and economic barriers between nation-states. The organizations and agreements established at that time were dubbed "the Bretton Woods" system. A third institution dealing with world trade was proposed which Congress refused to ratify. It was not until 1994 that a lame duck congress passed the General Agreement on Trade and Tariffs which became the World Trade Organization, thus harmonizing trade between countries. In 1944, gold was the main stabilizer of a country's economic well-being because the amount of gold would keep inflation in check and it also was used to keep trade balances between countries in check. If one country had an outstanding balance of payments as a result of not enough exports to match its imports, that imbalance could be wiped out by transferring gold between the countries at a prize of $35.00 oz. If a country did not have enough gold, then they needed to either increase exports or devalue their currency. This wonderful system did not allow for currency devaluations like what we saw in 1998 during the Asian Crisis and it did not allow for the large build up of trade imbalances like the $100B which the U.S. has with China. Furthermore, according to the Bretton Woods agreements, fluctuations between currencies were confined to a plus or minus 1% band. When President Roosevelt outlawed personal ownership of gold in 1933, he continued to honor all countries that had in their vaults U.S. gold-backed dollars which were used by countries to stabilize their own currencies, since they were convertible into gold at any time. Not many countries converted their gold-backed dollars into gold because the U.S. was the strongest country in the world. However, it was Charles de Gaulle who saw that the U.S. was spending far more than it had in gold reserves when he demanded $300M be converted to gold in early 1965. While that request was honored, it was not until Britain incurred the largest monthly trade deficit in its history that the Bretton Woods fixed exchange rates broke down. In August 1971, because the IMF would not lend Britain $300B to cover their deficit, they came to the U.S. to ask that their gold-backed dollars be converted. Since their request amounted to one third of the amount the U.S. had in gold reserves, it was determined that we could not honor this request. Interestingly enough the same Paul Volcker who wants a global currency was part of Nixon's cabinet serving as Undersecretary of the Treasury for Monetary Affairs during this historic time. He also is the same Paul Volcker who recently has been instrumental in converting America's accounting system to a global accounting system and he is the same Paul Volcker who has been working with our government to change its system of personnel management. Nixon took his entire Cabinet to Camp David where they determined the course of world economic history. On August 15, 1971, Nixon announced that had directed Treasury Secretary John Connally to "suspend temporarily the convertibility of the dollar into gold or other reserve assets."  By taking the dollar off the gold standard, Nixon opened Pandora's Box.  (See our money which was backed by gold is now useless because now it is backed by air). According to John Whitehead, on Aug, 24, 2007 wrote "According to the National Debt Clock the US national debt is now a 8.9 trillion dollars. Since September 29th 2006 it has increased an average of $1.45 billion per day. By 2010 the debt is estimated to reach 11.2 trillion.  It is difficult to get o­ne’s head around such a large figure, so think of it this way: if the nation’s debt were divvied up among Americans, every man, woman and child in the United States would owe approximately $38,000 (that o­nly includes the national debt, not any personal debt). Yet the government keeps ratcheting up the national debt, spending money it does not have o­n ill-advised schemes and far-flung wars. Since 2001, the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq have cost the American taxpayer hundreds of billions of dollars. For instance, by May 2007, Congress had approved roughly $610 billion for the three military operations initiated since the 9/11 attacks: Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan and other counter terror operations; Operation Noble Eagle, providing enhanced security at military bases; and Operation Iraqi Freedom. The Congressional Budget Office estimates that total funding for Iraq, Afghanistan and the “Global War o­n Terror” alone could reach $1.45 trillion by 2017. Add to this the fact that billions are spent o­n luxury military installations. For example, the new U.S. Embassy being built in Iraq, dubbed “Fortress Baghdad,” covers 104 acres and boasts a “city within a city” that includes six apartment buildings, a Marine barracks, swimming pool, shops and 15-foot-thick walls. Camp Anaconda in Iraq, like many U.S. military bases scattered across the globe, has been structured to resemble a mini-city with pools, fast food restaurants, miniature golf courses and movie theaters. Thus, it’s clear that American taxpayers’ dollars are not being used wisely or well. For example, earlier this year, it was revealed that although the U.S. had transported nearly $12 billion in shrink-wrapped $100 bills into Iraq, we have no proper accounting of who received it and how it was spent. No accountability.   On Thursday, January 13, 2011Federal Reserve Planning to CHANGE LAWS of TILA - TO STOP FORECLOSURE LAWSUITS AGAINST BANKS! M.F.s! The Federal Reserve plans on making changes to the TILA (Truth in Lending Act) laws, where homeowners will find it impossible to sue Banks and prevent Foreclosures!  This is despite the outcry from consumer groups and even the Senate Finance Committee! I would like to know, WHY the govt. - our elected officials even gave control over the banks and the people and their rights to a NON GOVERNMENT Entity - Which is what the Federal Reserve is!  THE FEDERAL RESERVE IS A PRIVATE BANK - NOT A GOVERNMENT ENTITY OF THE UNITED STATES -This question was asked by Sherrie, which is a very good question. However,This is another example of no accountability where our money and property are concerned.This is not a government agency and it is operating illegally.  The Government Accounting Office does not have complete access to all aspects of the Federal Reserve System. The Federal Banking Agency Audit Act stipulates the following areas are to be excluded from GAO inspections: (1) transactions for or with a foreign central bank, government of a foreign country, or non-private international financing organization; (2) deliberations, decisions, or actions on monetary policy matters, including discount window operations, reserves of member banks, securities credit, interest on deposits, open market operations; (3) transactions made under the direction of the Federal Open Market Committee; or (4) a part of a discussion or communication among or between members of the Board of Governors and officers and employees of the Federal Reserve System related to items. Everything we NEED to know about the Fed is exempt from any audit, including Monetary Policy decisions which effect the lives of hundreds of millions of people. The Federal Reserve Website is disingenuous when explaining its own structure. For instance, Candidates for the Board of Governors are put on a "recommendations list" by the Fed's Board of Directors. 6 out of 9 of these directors are selected by the Fed itself. This list is then given to the Senate and the President, and THEN he chooses members of the board, so in reality, it is the Fed who chooses who is on the Board of Governors. The Board of Governors is almost always made up of Bank CEO's, or Corporate CEO's, which leaves it wide open to corruption, and the Board provides little or no REAL oversite to the Fed, which was obvious in the Fed bailout of Bear-Stearns with public Tax dollars.  (I do believe China just became a partner in this good ole boy club).Ethically, the Fed is an institution of corruption and oppression according to a quote from Thomas Jefferson: quote: If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and the corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.... The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs. The modern theory of the perpetuation of debt has drenched the earth with blood, and crushed its inhabitants under burdens ever accumulating.  Holding power to issue money, which is supposed to be Congress's job. A quote from Dennis Kucinich: quote: ...and it's going to be my pleasure...to take this discussion to Capitol Hill, because Washington needs to understand how we are mired in debt and how we are staying there with the help of this fractional-reserve banking. Washington needs to understand that questions must be raised about why in effect did we give up our control of this asset, this ability to be able to issue money. Why did we give it to the Federal Reserve? We need to look at that again. It's not as though this country should be headed for bankruptcy or our people for destitution. The money's there. We need the will there, to begin to look at America in a new way and look at our potential to create material wealth in a new way. America did you know this little tid bit? On June 4, 1963, a virtually unknown Presidential decree, Executive Order 11110, was signed with the authority to basically strip the Federal Reserve Bank of its power to loan money to the United States Federal Government at interest. With the stroke of a pen, President Kennedy declared that the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank would soon be out of business. The Christian Law Fellowship has exhaustively researched this matter through the Federal Register and Library of Congress. We can now safely conclude that this Executive Order has never been repealed, amended, or superceded by any subsequent Executive Order. In simple terms, it is still valid.When President John Fitzgerald Kennedy - the author of Profiles in Courage -signed this Order, it returned to the federal government, specifically the Treasury Department, the Constitutional power to create and issue currency -money - without going through the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank. President Kennedy's Executive Order 11110 [the full text is displayed further below] gave the Treasury Department the explicit authority: "to issue silver certificates against any silver bullion, silver, or standard silver dollars in the Treasury." This means that for every ounce of silver in the U.S. Treasury's vault, the government could introduce new money into circulation based on the silver bullion physically held there. As a result, more than $4 billion in United States Notes were brought into circulation in $2 and $5 denominations. $10 and $20 United States Notes were never circulated but were being printed by the Treasury Department when Kennedy was assassinated. It appears obvious that President Kennedy knew the Federal Reserve Notes being used as the purported legal currency were contrary to the Constitution of the United States of America."United States Notes" were issued as an interest-free and debt-free currency backed by silver reserves in the U.S. Treasury. We compared a "Federal Reserve Note" issued from the private central bank of the United States (the Federal Reserve Bank a/k/a Federal Reserve System), with a "United States Note" from the U.S. Treasury issued by President Kennedy's Executive Order. They almost look alike, except one says "Federal Reserve Note" on the top while the other says "United States Note". Also, the Federal Reserve Note has a green seal and serial number while the United States Note has a red seal and serial number.President Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963 and the United States Notes he had issued were immediately taken out of circulation. Federal Reserve Notes continued to serve as the legal currency of the nation. According to the United States Secret Service, 99% of all U.S. paper "currency" circulating in 1999 are Federal Reserve Notes.Kennedy knew that if the silver-backed United States Notes were widely circulated, they would have eliminated the demand for Federal Reserve Notes. This is a very simple matter of economics. The USN was backed by silver and the FRN was not backed by anything of intrinsic value. Executive Order 11110 should have prevented the national debt from reaching its current level (virtually all of the nearly $9 trillion in federal debt has been created since 1963) if LBJ or any subsequent President were to enforce it. It would have almost immediately given the U.S. Government the ability to repay its debt without going to the private Federal Reserve Banks and being charged interest to create new "money". Executive Order 11110 gave the U.S.A. the ability to, once again, create its own money backed by silver and realm value worth something.Are you ready to fight back NOW!

I have been watching our political landscape lately and frankly I am sick and tired of the bs.  This is not coming from fear I am genuinely concerned about how we negate the truth in place of lies.  We as Americans are going through hard times but we can get through this if we unite, organize, boycott all businesses who took their businesses, jobs and money out of our country and banks.  We then get rid of the Federal Reserve Bank and create our own economy and print our own money interest free. Within our respective communities we have people who invent and make things we need.  Did you know that the man who made the saw that helped those miners in Chili to safety came from this country.  That is a business we need to support and he is someone who made that saw here in this country.  We have entrapreneurs like that all over America and we need to know who they are and begin supporting them and ourselves.  We have allowed the lack of integrity, ethics, honor, justice and reciprocity to invade our space within our personal lives, relationships, work life, interpersonal life and we accept it from our journalists our political leaders to the point where no one is held accountable for their actions.  It has gotten so bad we are now in debt so deep that our children, their children and their children will have to pay a debt we didn;t even incur nor did we ask for.  We just didn't do anything and at this point in time in our history that inaction is not acceptable.
