When will you and I have a Memorial Day when our memories actually start working?
On Memorial Day, you should remember how you have been deceived and manipulated since the day you were born. The media and the educational system had already filled your parents' brains with propaganda before you were born, which they passed on to you, just as your grandparents did to your parents. The media and the educational system then went to work on you, reinforcing all the mind control already established in your brain.
You should remember all the wars that were started to benefit the ruling elite, sacrificing the lives of neighbors, friends, and family to advance their selfish agenda. You should remember that President Wilson helped turned our monetary system over to the privatized, for-profit Federal Reserve, created by the ruling elite for the purpose of robbing us blind. Wilson then helped turn the isolationist sentiment in the United States upside down to get us into The Great War, "the war to end all wars", just as his handlers had ordered. Only twenty years after the horror of The Great War ended, the horror of World War II began. President Roosevelt, also taking orders from the true rulers of the world, did everything he could to goad Japan into attacking the United States. And when our military intelligence services reported to Roosevelt when and where the attack would occur, Roosevelt kept it quiet, never warning American forces in Pearl Harbor, satisfied that he had accomplished his assignment which resulted in what he called "a date which will live in infamy". For a job well done, his profile is on the American dime.
You should remember that all the Presidents of the United States for at least the last 100 years have been the obedient puppets of the true rulers of the world. Those true rulers are never elected, never identified, and never publicly acknowledged. You should remember that the true rulers of the world are organized sociopaths, literally mentally deviant but brilliant criminals, who are not at all like you. They lack empathy, so they simply don't care much about the damage they do to other humans or even other living things. They are literally deceptive and manipulative game-players intent on benefiting themselves, even to the extreme point of enslaving the masses. And they do it through the use of money and mind control.
"That an increase of the quantity of money raises prices and a diminution lowers them, is the most elementary proposition in the theory of currency, and without it we should have no key to any of the others. The few who can understand the system (check money and credits) will either be so interested in its profits, or so dependent on its favors, that there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of the people mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that capital derives from the system, will bear its burdens without complaint, and perhaps without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests." -- From a letter written by the Rothschild Bros, of London, England, to a New York firm of bankers, June 26, 1863
"My agency in promoting the passage of the National Bank Act was the greatest financial mistake of my life. It has built up a monopoly which affects every interest in the country. It should be repealed; but before that can be accomplished, the people will be arrayed on one side and the banks on the other, in a contest such as we have never seen before in this country." -- Salmon P. Chase, Secretary of the Treasury, 1861-64
"While boasting of our noble deeds, we are careful to conceal the ugly fact that by our iniquitous money system we have nationalized a system of oppression, which, though more refined, is not less cruel than the old system of chattel slavery." -- Horace Greeley on the National Banking Act, 1872
"Whoever controls the volume of money in any country is absolute master of all industry and commerce." -- President James A. Garfield (assassinated 1881)
"A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the Nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men ... We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world — no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of small groups of dominant men." -- President Woodrow Wilson, 1916
"Under the Federal Reserve Act panics are scientifically created; the present panic is the first scientifically created one, worked out as we figure a mathematical problem." -- Charles A. Lindbergh, Sr., writing of the panic of 1920
Should we be proud of our country when it is controlled by sociopathic criminals who don't care about us or our principles? Should we sacrifice our time, our money, or our lives in service to these scheming monsters? Should we glorify others who have done exactly that and paid the ultimate price? Should we allow this travesty to continue until we are so thoroughly deceived that we end up creating a special day to celebrate our own enslavement?
Or have we already done all that?
