20 Constitution Avenue Northwest, Washington, D.C.
Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System
The Office of the Chairman
“Mr. Chairman? The markets have opened in Europe.”
“And?” came a voice from a corner of the dimly lit room.
“They’re not buying it. Rather, they’re not buying bonds.”
Slowly a figure emerged from the shadows. “Dammit, I was hoping this could wait until after the weekend. I have a ball to attend Saturday night!”
“Sir, I know how much the Bankster Ball means to you, but this needs to be done today. London’s already off 17%…Frankfurt has stopped trading…the Chinese…”
“Silence!” bellowed the Chairman. “We knew this day would come; a bit earlier than we had thought, sure, but that’s what makes economics fun. It keeps you on your toes. You know, the whole ‘human element’ thing.”
“I agree Ben, I also think…”
“Silence! How dare you call me Ben. You may call me Mr. Bernanke. Or Lucifer. But not Ben”.
“Of course, Mr. Lucifer Bernanke.”
“Good. Now, go home and get a few hours of rest. You have a very important speech today. You know the one, right Barrack?”.
“Of course! Every day I practice reading it off my favorite teleprompter! I have the head nods down perfect, honest!”
The Chairman of the private Federal Reserve System stroked his finely groomed beard, candlelight reflecting off his bald head.
“Mr. President…let’s take a holiday!”

1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, D.C.
The White House
“…crisis in Europe. Facing this direct threat to our financial system, my Administration has no choice but to call for a moratorium on all financial transactions – effective immediately. Trust me when I tell you that the best and brightest of America have been working day and night to insulate your hard-earned cash from any fallout related to the Euro’s collapse. While we must help our cousins in Europe we must also – first and foremost – guarantee the future of our children, and our children’s children.”
***Nod Head, Determined***
“This will prove to be a pivotal moment in this history of the United States of America. I am confident that the American people will emerge from this challenge stronger than ever.”
***Nod Head, Confidently***
“Thank you, and God Bless America.”

1900 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, D.C.
Headquarters of the International Monetary Fund
“…the North American Dollar. This ‘new’ Dollar will be issued by the Triumvirate; the new central bank created by Monday’s merger of the International Monetary Fund, World Bank, and Federal Reserve. This new currency will provide the strength and security America needs to weather the economic maelstrom threatening our ways of peace and prosperity.”
***Nod Head, Relieved***
“With the implementation of this new currency I am happy to announce that the moratorium on financial transactions will be lifted tomorrow morning at 9:30 AM Eastern. America will be open for business once more!”
***Pause 3 seconds***
***Nod Head, Somberly***
“Unfortunately, this solution to the Crisis of 2012 does not come without costs. The global financial collapse, coupled with our humanitarian efforts in the Middle East and the looming conflicts with China and Russia, require vast amounts of resources.”
***Look knowingly into the camera***
“Everyone has to sacrifice in a time of crisis. It’s the American way.”
“As such, a Freedom Surcharge of 32% will be assessed on all conversions of US Dollars to North American Dollars. Furthermore, effective Monday at midnight, the North American Dollar will officially replace the US Dollar as the legal form of tender in the United States. Use of the former currency as a means of trade will be strictly prohibited. You can certainly keep them as collector’s items…”
“…but the old greenback will join silver and gold as counterfeit money come July 30th. It has served this nation well and will always be fondly remembered. My team has assured me that this transition will be seamless. If you have an electronic bank account you won’t have to do anything to enjoy the security of our new Dollar – your funds have already been converted. If you keep your life savings under your bed, just bring it on in this weekend and we’ll convert it for you right on the spot. No forms to fill out, no documents to file, and no more risk of an economic catastrophe…”
I would love to write fiction someday but, alas, time is short, and I have a lot of shit to dish on the Banksters. Plus, reality is more messed up than fiction anyway. So let’s begin. I know you probably have a lot of questions:
- Why is the headquarters of the private Federal Reserve System located on Constitution Avenue?
- What is a ‘moratorium on financial transactions’?
- Why is Bernanke‘s middle name Lucifer?
- And many more!
While I’d like to answer all of your questions I realize that the average person’s attention span is quite short these days, my own included. If you’ve read this far you’re probably getting a bit antsy to do something else. This makes sense – it’s 2012, and there’s a lot of cool shit to do in modern society. But what would happen if modern society ‘took a holiday’ for a few hours, a few days, or a few weeks? There wouldn’t be much cool shit to do anymore, I’ll tell you that.
I’ll get started with the basics. A moratorium on financial transactions, also known as a bank holiday, is exactly what you probably think it is. Simply put, no one is getting paid, and no one is getting their money out of the bank. Your credit cards will be worth the plastic they’re made of…but it won’t even matter because your local supermarket won’t be able to accept payment anyway. Yes, perhaps you will have some cash on hand, and if you’re lucky your grocer will continue to sell you food, but you can be sure that there will be a run on the store and it will shortly be cleaned out by those who also had cash stuck under their mattress. Or looters. This is the part where the average person’s Plan B breaks down.
The problem is that your local supermarket operates entirely through lines of credit and purchasing agreements – an efficient setup in times of prosperity, but an Achilles’ Heel during a bank holiday. With only cash and ad hoc IOUs, how is your local grocer to pay the dairy vendor? The meat vendor? How about the guys who bring in the fresh vegetables, the cereal, or the water? People may come together at the dawn of such a financial crisis, but as uncertainty abounds and time drags on a sense of panic will spread amongst the population. Once the violence begins you will be hard pressed to find a neighbor who will sell you a pack of ramen. Good luck finding an open store with food for your two-year old. Not exactly a great holiday at the seashore.
So why would our government call for a bank holiday? Well, Mr. Obama summarized it pretty well when he was in Lucifer Bernanke‘s office: “They’re not buying bonds”. If investors are too scared to buy bonds – the lifeblood of the financial system – everything comes grinding to a halt. And by everything grinding to a halt, I mean everything melts down. My hypothetical scenario refers to a collapse of the European banking industry and the Euro itself. Such a widespread and sudden shock to the bond markets would put the world’s financial system into a death spiral. The only way to prevent the contagion from infecting the markets is to unplug the New York Stock Exchange.
Why would the Banksters destroy the very financial system that gives them power? The true answer to this question lies with the fact that the Banksters do not use the financial system to gain power; instead, they have created the financial system to project power. This will soon make more sense once I publish the third and final installment of my “Who Are The Banksters?“ series of articles, but for now know that the true Banksters never made their money through the financial system as it exists today.
Besides, the Banksters aren’t exactly destroying the financial system when they call for a bank holiday. Think of it more as a remodeling of a kitchen or the building of an addition to a home; unfortunately for humanity, the Banksters’ blueprints call for an underground dungeon where fiat debt slaves are to be kept.
People will be shitting their pants should an extended bank holiday take place. Within just a few days there would be massive civil unrest and the subsequent declaration of martial law. This is one goal of the Banksters. Soon I will write an article exposing the police state that is being erected in the United States; for now know that the military has been training with police to combat civil unrest and food riots for more than a decade, and the Banksters would love to use this force to ‘suspend the Constitution’ for a little while as they cut back-room deals. With military on the streets and people desperate for a solution there will be a massive outcry for someone to just FIX THIS SHIT!!!
The Banksters will be quite happy to fix the situation for you. If you pay them a 32% Freedom Surcharge.
The ‘Freedom Surcharge’ doesn’t necessarily have to manifest itself through the conversion of US Dollars to the fictitious North American Dollars; only imagination limits the ways in which the Banksters could fleece you and your family. When it looks like your two-year old has a good chance of going hungry or being hurt by a looter, a 32% Freedom Surcharge sounds like a pretty good fucking deal.
Finally, just like a Freedom Surcharge can take many different forms, it’s important to realize that the type(s) of event(s) causing the need for a bank holiday are limitless. ‘Terrorist’ attacks, a major war, the release of a super computer virus, the release of a super human virus…go watch some sci-fi movies and let the scenarios unfold. No matter what happens, though, remember – it’s probably the Banksters’ fault. Are you going to trust their Solution?
