over the last 100 years the Federal Reserve has created bubbles and burst them and slaved us with debt and destroyed our purchasing power through inflation yes has been a wonderful lie for the Baker's there are striking parallels and Frank Capra's It's a Wonderful Life – the lies and tricks that real bankers used to create the Federal Reserve human nature doesn't change and the greedy elite of 1913 in 2013 look and act a lot like Potter the banker in the movie and many Americans are left like George Bailey staring into the abyss as their dreams collapse and they face financial ruin do we live in a country that looks a lot more like Pottersville than Bedford Falls what does Frank Capra's films show us about how we got here and how we can get out when the Federal Reserve was created two days before Christmas 100 years ago it was a culmination of six years of fraud fear and manipulation the panic of 1907 was used to shape public support for the Fed the panic was triggered by rumors that two major banks were about to become insolvent just as we see in the movie George there is a room around town that you close your doors is that true I am going all out help in this crisis I have just guaranteed the bank sufficient funds to meet their needs they will close up for a week and then reopen just took over the bank I may lose a fortune but I am willing to guarantee your people – just tell them to bring their shares over here and I will pay 50 cents on the dollar oh you never miss a trick do you Potter unfortunately JP Morgan got away with the deception and was able to shut down competitors and snapped up assets at fire sale prices take during the Depression for instance you and I were the only ones that kept our heads you saved the building it alone I saved all the rats yes well most people say you stole all the rest the envious ones day though George the suckers Charles Lindbergh senior warned people at the time of the creation of the Federal Reserve that it would not stop booming bicycle's but what actually create them in order to benefit its private owners here's what he said because high prices all the Federal Reserve Board will do will be to lower the reed ISKCON trait producing an expansion of credit and a rising stock market then when businessmen are adjusted to these conditions it can check prosperity and mid-career by arbitrarily raising the rate of interest it can cause a pendulum of rising and falling market to swing gently back and forth or cause violent fluctuations by a greater rate variation and in either case it will possess inside information as to the financial conditions and advanced knowledge of the coming change either up or down this is a strangest most dangerous advantage ever placed in the hands of a special privileged class by any government that ever existed the system is private conducted for the sole purpose of obtaining the greatest possible profits from the use of other people's money they know in advance when to create panics to their advantage and they know when to stop panic inflation and deflation work equally well for them when they control the finance as we see in the movie not all lending institutions have the same motivations all day on brain taxi I happen to know the bank turned down this loan but he comes here and we're building him a house worth $5,000 why well I handled that mr. Potter you have all the papers there is salary insurance I can personally vouch for his character thank you yes you see if you shoot pool with some employee here you can come and borrow money what does that get us a discontented lazy rabble instead of a thrifty working class as a former FDIC chair said all too often the large banks use their models and their algorithms and if you don't fit in their boxes you don't get the lung and dodd-frank legislation is tying the hands of small lenders shutting out buyers and shutting down lenders today there are fewer lenders than at any time the government has kept records ten thousand banks disappeared between 1984 and 2011 this town needs this measly one-horse institution if only to have someplace where people can come without crawling the Potter in the movie George gets to see what happens to the small-town have pottered it in half competition from credit unions and smaller lenders that happen to you yeah if it hadn't been for me everybody'd be a lot better off my wife and my kids and my friends Amit look low father why you go off and haunt somebody else yeah so you still think killing yourself would make everyone feel happier right I don't know I guess you're right it's both been better if I'd never been born at all Pottersville the only businesses thriving our Vice people are angry the town is filled with signs like keep moving keep off the grass Bert the cop actually shoots at George when he's running away and is no threat to anyone everyone is a renter no one has a stake now you're Arnie bishop and you live in Bailey Park with your wife and kids what but what's the idea I live in a shack and potter's field my wife ran away three years ago and took the kid and I'd never seen you before in my life see private property and everyone having a stake is the antidote to Pottersville here you're all businessmen here dough doesn't make them better citizens doesn't make them better customers but whether it's the trans-pacific partnership or a global carbon tax the global elite don't see you as a stakeholder they want to turn us all into serfs and treat us like cattle just remember this mr. Potter that this rabble you're talking about they do most of the working and paying and living and dying in this community well is it too much to have them work and pay and live and die in a couple of decent rooms in a bath anyway my father didn't think so people were human beings to him but to you a warped frustrated old man there cap well in my book he died a much richer man than you will ever be I'm not interested in your book I'm talking about the building and Loan I know very well what you're talking about you're talking about something you can't get your fingers on speaking of riches do you find the salary amounts amusing when Potter tries to buy George off your side married making say 40 week 45 45 45 George I'll start you out at 20 thousand dollars a year twenty-five twenty thousand dollars a year but you wouldn't mind living in the nicest house in town buying your wife a lot of fine clothes a couple of business trips to New York yeah maybe once in a while Europe you wouldn't mind that would you John would I even if George had saved a lot of his twenty thousand dollar salary would it have bought much a couple of decades later by even the government's very conservative estimate of inflation the dollar has lost ninety percent of its value since 1947 when the movie was made the feds deliberate inflation is devastating to anyone trying to accumulate wealth through hard work and saving so what is the answer to all the George Bailey's out there a hundred years after the government gave control of our money supply to private bankers like Potter well Potter had more money than he could spend but would any of you want to be Potter you sit around here and you spin your little webs you think the whole world revolves around you and your money well it doesn't mr. Potter in they in the whole vast configuration of things I'd say you were nothing but a scurvy little spider George Bailey finally sees how rich his own life is as he sees the fruits of relationship honesty and compassion happy New Year to you in jail go on home they're waiting for you and if the public can awaken to the lies of the Federal Reserve if it could even be audited it would be a huge step to breaking the chains and enslave hollows but ultimately it is God that changes minds and changes hearts God hates oppression and we can and should confidently pray that he will stop it I'll help you dear father Joseph Jesus and Mary helped my friend mr. Bailey help my son George tonight he never thinks about himself God that's why he's in trouble George is a good guy give him a break God I'm not a praying man if you're up there and you can hear me the Infowars Nightly News I'm David Knight
