The Saturday deadline for the Irish masses to register for new property taxes, new water taxes, and various other new taxes has come and gone. The Irish masses have given the bankers a bloody nose. (For those of you in the USA, Irish houses don't yet have water meters like yours does.)
However this was only Round 1.
The bankers will win, because the masses do not support a public central bank. In all those protest marches with their hand-held signs and posters, do you see one sign that calls for a public central bank?
Until a nation gets a public bank, all protests are simply a means for the masses to blow off steam. All “reforms” are simply maneuvers in the shell game. All political parties are simply distractions. Poverty, debt, and unemployment will continue to worsen. Each coalition of politicians will say, “Elect us, for we will stand against the bankers!” -- but they always do an about-face as soon as they get power. This is a standard game in all nations that have private central banks. ("Change you can believe in!") And it's natural, since the masses will not listen to me unless I promise to make things better for the masses, and the bankers will not support me unless I actually make things worse.
Even if this issue proves to be the end of the Fine Gael majority (as Margaret Thatcher’s Poll Tax eventually undid the Conservative majority in England), the bankers will simply put in a new coalition. When Blair got in with Labour, he was even worse than the Conservatives (just as Obama is worse than Bush.) Each new leader promises “hope and change," and is worse than his predecessor. This will continue as long as private bankers remain in control.
Any public figure who does not discuss the need for public central banking is a fraud. Yesterday the bankers installed George Galloway as MP for Bradford England. Galloway's tirades against the wars and against Israel divert public attention from the true source of the problem. On 12 Dec 2011 he blasted David Cameron for refusing to hand over British sovereignty to the Troika, claiming that Britain cannot survive without globalist financial elite tyranny. Here’s the link…
Galloway also blasts Hitler, 9-11 truthers, etc. He has consistently backed socialist policy in the UK, but this is a pretense. A sham. He's a loud-mouthed globalist shill. That’s why the bankers give him so much media time. It's why they installed him in Bradford. Galloway will continue whining about Palestinians, thereby pacifying the large Muslim (mainly Pakistani) contingent in Bradford while doing nothing to bring jobs there, or to oppose the Troika that pays him. Bradford will remain a dead city of giant but empty textile mills, long ago shut down in favor of overseas sweatshops.
Do you admire Galloway? Try mentioning to him the need to overthrow private central bankers, and watch him shout you down.
Irish Justice Minister Alan Shatter says Sinn Féin voted to increase the household tax in Northern Ireland, and are therefore hypocrites. If that is true, then I am not surprised. In Ireland, Sinn Féin sat in the fence until a week ago.
The United Left Alliance has five seats in the Dail, and has called for a boycott – but they too are frauds. Unless they call for public central banks, they are simply holding out for special favors from the private bankers. Same with Sinn Féin.
The Irish Socialists? Do they call for a public central bank? (Besides, all Westerners have been programmed against the word "socialist,” even though they accept socialism for the rich.)
Brazil has one of the strongest economies in the world, and accounts for almost 80 percent of South America’s economy. Brazil’s central bank is government-owned, but the bank bureaucrats are almost as bad as the private bankers that control the West. Still, it is better than what we have here.
Popular financial blogs pretend to question the bankers, but they delete all reader comments about public central banking, since such references would stop the mindless chatter. Everyone wants to argue about the symptoms while ignoring the disease.
Irish politicians were among the first to submit to the Troika. This made the Troika overconfident. Their servants in the Dail (Irish parliament) screwed up. They confused the masses, saying people could only register online for the new property taxes and water taxes (starting with the householder fee), while also saying (falsely) that they have already received millions of registrations by regular post. The politicians didn't even bother to make sure the online registration system worked properly. Even if people wanted to register, they could not log on. That's carelessness.
The Irish media screwed up by saying that most people have not registered. The media forgot to use standard divide-and conquer techniques, saying that every county has registered except YOURS. Everyone has registered except YOU, and the government is coming after you!
The Catholic Church screwed up by not drilling into the masses that they must “render unto Caesar.” Last Tuesday in Letterkenny (County Donegal), one priest, Brian O’Fearragh, led a protest against tax registration. (Doubtless the Church will slap down O’Fearragh harder than it did Bishop Richard Williamson for questioning the Jewish holo-hoax.)
Like I said, this was only Round 1. The bankers will learn. They will not be so careless. They will tell Irish politicians, media bosses, and Church bosses, “If you cannot get the job done, then we will replace you immediately!”
No doubt the bankers have flown consultants to Ireland from throughout Europe and North American to instruct Irish politicians, media bosses, and Catholic bosses on how to properly crush the masses. Ireland had property taxes until 1997. Ireland will have them again.
Public central banks and monetary sovereignty. All other matters are distracting chatter.
