- The following story is a variation of the famous New
York Sun Editorial of 1897 Yes, Virginia, There is a Santa Claus.
- Dear Editor:
- I am 28-years old and I am heavily invested in the stock
market. On July 5th, I was amazed when for no apparent reason, the Dow
gained 300 points. On July 15th, after being down over 400 points, I was
again, amazed when the Dow regained 350 points in the last hour of trading.
I have heard rumors that there is such a thing called The Plunge Protection
Team, but I have asked my friends and broker about this, and they say there
is no such thing.
- I finally asked my Dad and he suggested I write and ask
you. Dad says, "If you see it in The Sun, it's so." Please tell
me the truth, is there a Plunge Protection Team?
- --Virginia O'Hanlon
- Virginia, your friends and broker are wrong. They have
been affected by the skepticism of a skeptical age. They do not believe
except what they can see. They think that nothing can be which is not
comprehensible by their little minds. Most minds, Virginia, have been
brain-washed and are incapable of grasping the whole of truth and knowledge.
- Yes, Virginia, there is a Plunge Protection Team.
- The official name of the team is the President's Working
Group on Financial Markets. It was created by Executive Order 12631 on
March 3, 1988 and signed by President Ronald Reagan. The members include
the President, the Secretary of the Treasury, the Chairman of the Federal
Reserve, the Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, and the
Chairman of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. This group artificially
props up the market to give investors the false illusion that all is well
with the stock market and the economy.
- Are you familiar, Virginia, with the words of Hitler's
henchman Dr. Joseph Goebbels? He said, ìThe lie can be maintained
only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political,
economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally
important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for
the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth
becomes the greatest enemy of the State.î Alas! The real economy
is dreary! It is as dreary as if there were no Virginias, but the media
and government continue to give assurances that all is well. When the
economy finally crashes there will be no childlike faith then, no poetry,
no romance to make tolerable this existence. We will have no enjoyment,
and surely not in sense and sight. The external light with which childhood
fills the world will be extinguished. Thus, we must rely on our faith in
God to see us through,and not the State.
- Not believe in a Plunge Protection Team! Well, then,
you might as well believe in fairies. You see, Virginia, reality is not
what it appears to be. In the financial world, government indicators,
such as monthly unemployment figures are fudged. Thus, the current 6 percent
unemployment is actually closer to 12 percent. Company earnings, as reported
by corporate America are not real either. They have been fabricated to
make the companies ìlook goodî and transfer the wealth of
the ìlittle peopleî to Fat Cat CEOs. Even the president and
vice president were involved in such practices when they headed private
corporations. They wonít go to jail for their misdeeds, however,
neither will the other CEOs because they all have friends in high places.
- You might get your Dad to hire men to watch the stock
exchange to catch The Plunge Protection Team, but even if you did not see
them, what would that prove? Nobody sees The Plunge Protection Team, but
that is no sign that there is no Plunge Protection Team. The most real
things in the world are those that neither children nor men can see. Did
you ever see fairies dancing on the lawn? Of Course not, but thatís
no proof that they are not there. If, however, the corrupt officials,
evil elitists and controlled media wanted you to believe in fairies they
would convince you that it is so.
- Our entire reality is controlled, Virginia, even to the
point of what we see and hear.
- Technology now exists through electronic imaging systems
whereby photographs and video clips can be altered so even a professional
photographer or film maker would not be able to detect the fake. On August
1, 2001, New York Times reporter Lisa Guernsey, reported that, ì
AT&T Labs will start selling speech software that it says is so good
at reproducing the sounds, inflections and intonations of a human voice
that it can re-create voices and even bring the voices of long-dead celebrities
back to life.î Combining the technique of video and voice, MIT researchers,
as reported in the May 5, 2002 Boston Globe, are now able to produce, ìrealistic
videos of people saying things they never said. The new software relies
on an ingenious ap-plication of artificial intelligence to teach a machine
what a person looks like when talking.
- "It is only a matter of time before somebody can
get enough good video of your face to have it do what they like,"
said Matthew Brand, a research scientist at MERL, a Cambridge-based laboratory
for Mitsubishi Electric.
- Nobody can conceive or imagine all the machinations there
are unseen and useeable in this evil world.
- So, Virginia, you might ask, if our perceived reality
has been skewed, what is real?
- The Federal Reserve is real, but not as you know it to
be. It is not an arm of the federal government but is instead, a private
corporation composed of elitist bankers who literally control the United
States financial system. The Fed, in concert with secret societies and
elitists groups such as the Council on Foreign Relations, have already
orchestrated the coming financial crash. When will it happen? Very soon,
for to achieve the New World Order they desire, the economy of the United
States must be destroyed.
- Now, Virginia, I understand that by imparting this information
to you, you might well perceive me as a prophet of doom and gloom or worse
yet, a conspiracy nut. Well, I have heard that before, however, just because
it is hard for you to believe these things doesn't make them untrue. If
you really want to know the truth, Virginia, it is out there, but it will
require you to read. Yes, I know that is a challenge for you and others
your age as you are products of the public school system. Although you
are unaware of it, you have not been taught critical thinking skills and
therefore lack the ability to examine and assimilate information that would
seem contrary to the norm.
- It has not been my intension to frighten you, Virginia,
quite the opposite. I have only wanted to impart the truth. You see,
while evil cabals may appear to dominate the events on this earth, they
only have a season. The God of the universe is still in control. You tear
apart the baby's rattle and see what makes the noise inside, but there
is a veil covering the unseen world which not the strongest man, nor even
the united strength of all the strongest men that ever lived could tear
apart. Only faith in God can push aside that curtain and view and, picture
the supernal beauty and glory beyond. Is God real? Ah, Virginia, in all
this world there is nothing else real and abiding.
- No Plunge Protection Team? Unfortunately, it exists,
but that won't be so forever. A thousand years from now, Virginia, nay
10 times 10,000 years from now, the evil these men do will be a long forgotten
- Note: Please feel free to pass this along to the Virginias
in your own life.
