The Cosmic Improv Group
brings JP Morgan to
Dr. Kathorkian’s Spotlight Therapy*
Chapter Three: Cosmic Improv Group Series
Friday, January 18, 2008 – I assumed a mountain of debt going to medical school and into private practice, then the bottom drops out of my stock equity, and I’m stuck with the debt. That’s how they do it. It was a direct economic hit on my financial freedom, engineered by a stockbroker and banker I thought worked for me. My wrath over the betrayal was like a nuclear reactor in meltdown mode, so the Cosmic Improv Group, that gaggle of personalities inside my imagination and unheard by others, decides to hose me down before I get too hot.
Always eager for good entertainment, the CIG invites JP Morgan to a Spotlight Therapy session, so I can tell him off. I’ve done my homework. I’ve read The Creature from Jekyll Island, The Robber Barons, None Dare Call it Conspiracy, Democracy in America, Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, the US Constitution, and other tomes of epic wisdom. I am armed.
My inter-dimensional travels through print media have revealed how JP Morgan and his international banker friends, like Paul Warbucks . . . er . . . Paul Warburg, engineered the federal income tax and the Federal Reserve Act in 1913 to enslave American taxpayers in unrepayable debt. Congress gave itself the power to obligate present and future taxpayers to the Federal Reserve System for perpetual interest payments, on debt assumed by Congress. Not only are taxpayers expected to pay interest until the sun burns out on money that’s worth nothing, but Congress uses the fake money to lay waste to the nation’s natural resources and neighborhoods, and to create conflict around the world. It funds its enormous bureaucracy and the pension and benefits plans for all those government employees. It funds Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security with money stolen in payroll taxes. These electronic dollars are invested on Wall Street. Congress also pays the Department of Offense to make life miserable at home and abroad. Congress further believes it has the right to obligate taxpayers to pay an army of no-bid federal government contractors. Congress sets its own salary, pensions, benefits and other assorted goodies, by obligating unborn taxpayers until the time the country officially declares bankruptcy.
As all this fiat money floods the financial system, the increased money supply causes inflation and higher prices on goods and services, especially indispensable commodities like food and energy. Those who can least afford it are hardest hit.
So back in 1913, the conspirators used freshman United States President Woodrow Wilson, whom they’d been grooming for years, to do their dirty work. Ole Woody thought he was the second coming of Christ, so the bankers and other manipulators, like Winston Churchill, played to his ego and got him to go against every campaign promise he made.
This eventually led America into World War I, which was the long-term goal of the bankers. The Brits owed the bankers a lot of money, and the bankers needed that money to lend to Germany. So they figured to bleed America, too, to increase profits. Thus did they conjure up the aforementioned double whammy on American taxpayers, to cover their foreign ass-ets.
Now in the CIG, when JP Morgan starts bragging about how they pulled this off, I light into him.
“You asshole,” I fume. “You deserve to have your gold chains tight around your neck. No wonder you were such a lonely, bitter man, whom everyone was glad to see dead. You left a legacy alright, dying the year you achieved the income tax and the Federal Reserve Act. Didn’t even have the balls to go to the 1910 secret planning meeting at Jekyll Island yourself. That’s how sleazy you were.
“I wouldn’t trade a good knitting needle for the likes of you and all your fawning pawns. In fact, I would use a knitting needle on you real quick like, and not to make a sweater. I would go for the balls, just to see if you have any.”
JP sits there grinning, as though he appreciates my standing up to him. He thinks I’m cute.
He says if I had been at the Jekyll Island meeting, he would have gone.
He achieved his dream, and then he died. His dream didn’t make him happy. This is the lesson de Tocqueville anticipated.
If I had been at that meeting, we would have had a different history, I’m sure, because those boys needed to know who really runs things in this country, and it ain’t them.
JP is impressed that I cashed in my IRA. I’m sending shock waves through the system, with my political statement. No wonder the Wachovia’s investment advisor was so anxious to get rid of me.
Yeah, right, JP. Can you do anything useful? You’re not making much progress on that knitting.
He grins and tries to cast on a stitch, but doesn’t know how. His hands are clumsy. I show him how to cast on, but it takes several minutes, because he is not gifted in New Age String Theory and knitting dynamics.
In knitting, every stitch is dependent on every other stitch. When you make everything and everyone dependent on you, you are the most hog tied of all.
“No preacher told me I would have to knit in hell,” says JP Morgan. “If they had, I would have owned knitting, because this is a fast growing market with a captive population.”
“For some people, knitting represents a form of heaven, and no one can own that,” I say. “All it takes is the right attitude and tools.”
