Current State of the Union: A Candid View Inside Washington D.C.

Dear reader,

In 1983, after Dr. R. Buckminster Fuller’s death, his book GRUNCH of Giants was released.

GRUNCH stands for GRoss UNiverse Cash Heist. Fuller usually wrote and spoke on math, science, architecture, and generalized principles of the universe—all subjects my poor dad loved. GRUNCH, however, was about money, a subject my rich dad loved.

In GRUNCH, Fuller describes a level of human beings that manipulate the world via money, government, international organizations, big corporations, the stock and bond market, and the economy for their personal agenda.

GRUNCH is invisible—“hiding in plain sight”—to most of us. Some people suspect “secret societies,” and other clandestine organizations. I do not have any proof of any such group, yet I do not doubt they exist. Some people suspect the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank and the entire banking system is GRUNCH.

I believe GRUNCH is the puppet master and central bankers are its puppets.

GRUNCH is not communist or capitalist, Republican or Democrat, Liberal or Conservative.

GRUNCH is not about politics.

(Although with only 24 days until the next election, we do recommend that you click here to see the question every American should be preparing for…)

GRUNCH is about control.

As Mayer M. Rothschild said, “Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes the laws.” Rothschild, the godfather of the Rothschild Banking Cartel of Europe, had five sons and they went about controlling the world via central banks. Today, almost every country in the world has a central bank.

Today, the Federal Reserve is the central bank for the United States. Its decisions affect the U.S. economy, and therefore the world. This position makes it the most powerful force in the global economy.

It is not a company or a government agency. Its leader is not an elected official. This makes it seem highly suspicious to many people because it is not subject to either voters or shareholders.

I’ve wondered why there has been so much controversy around Central Banks. It’s because Central Banks control a nation’s money supply and determine the quantity of money in circulation by buying and selling debt. Hence, they have more power than governments and people. You can see this more today than ever before.

But just how exactly are people being controlled?

Control Through Education

Education is our best weapon in fighting—and beating—the Fed. And it can start with simply changing the words you use and how you think about money. 

Yet, our current educational system is leaving out one of the most important topics: money. Instead of teaching you about money, the educational system teaches you how to be the perfect employee. There is controversy about whether this is intentional or just an overlooked flaw in the system.

Fredrick Gates wrote a statement for the first occasional paper of the General Education Board, and he said,

“In our dream, we have limitless resources, and the people yield themselves with perfect docility to our molding hands. The present educational conventions fade from our minds; and, unhampered by tradition, we work our own good upon a grateful and responsive rural folk… For the task, we set before ourselves is very simple as well as a very beautiful one: To train these people as we find them to a perfectly ideal life just where they are…”

This is suppression at its finest. For those of you who don’t know and are wondering, the General Education Board was created in 1903 by the Rockefeller Foundation, a powerful and wealthy organization at its time.

Their goal was to “mold” students to be the kind of employees that they needed them to be. There was no regard for the student, his/her needs, goals or dreams. This was the power of the elite rich, making sure that they stayed the elite rich.

Sadly, even though this was over a century ago, this curriculum is still in place and is affecting you and your children’s education. This curriculum is responsible for denying financial education. The General Education Board didn’t want you, me, and the upcoming generations to learn about money. They want to stay in their elite positions, unopposed and allow THEIR children to have the education that isn’t suited for us common folk.

They want us to be “good” employees, not intelligent and well-rounded people.

Control Through The Federal Reserve

In 1913, the Federal Reserve was created, even though the Founding Fathers, creators of the U.S. Constitution, were very much against a national bank that controlled the money supply.

Without proper financial education, few people know that the Federal Reserve is not federal, it has no reserves, and it is not a bank. Once the Fed was in place, there were two sets of rules when it came to money: One set of rules for people who work for money, and another set of rules for the rich who print money.

In 1974, the U.S. Congress passed the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), which led to retirement vehicles like the 401(k). This act effectively forced millions of workers who enjoyed employer-provided defined benefit (DB) pension plans to instead rely on defined contribution (DC) pension plans and put all their retirement money in the stock market and mutual funds.

Wall Street now had control of the U.S. citizens’ retirement money. The rules of money were completely changed and heavily tilted in favor of the rich and powerful.

Control Through Fear

Jack Bergman, U.S. Representative for Michigan’s 1st Congressional District, describes what’s happening in Washington D.C. as control. And he says, “The first way to control people is to cause fear.”

Most of us know that any market is run on greed and fear. The reason the market went up in the 1990s was because of greed, and the reason it will go down is because of fear.

As Warren Buffett said, “Widespread fear is your friend, as an investor, because it serves up bargain purchases.” After the stock market crashed in 1929, fear spread, Americans hung on to their dollars, the economy deflated, businesses closed, people lost their jobs, and depression set in.

In The Creature from Jekyll Island, Griffin boldly states that the purpose of the “Creature” is Marxist communism.

He writes, “The spirit of the American people is too strong. Before Marxist communism can take over Americans, the American spirit must be broken. The way to break the American spirit is to make Americans poor.”

These words ring true for me, which is why today’s gap between the rich and everyone else is troubling and dangerous. Once Americans are poor, their capitalist spirit can be broken, opening the door for socialism and communism.

My advice? Keep financially educating yourself so you can make sound decisions – no matter what the future holds.
