("Quid coniuratio est?")
[CN Editor -- I cannot vouch for the accuracy of all of the following. It may or may not be true, I just don't know.]
[The following is a transcript of a recorded phone message put out by a group in Chicago called "Citizens' Committee to Clean Up the Courts [CCCC]." (312) 731-1100 and (312) 731-1505.]
Hi! Sherman Skolnick, Citizens' Committee to Clean Up the Courts, 9800 Oglesby.
When it comes to financial matters, far too many people believe in fairy tales.
Fantasy #1: It is O.K. to enter your bank account and put it into mutual funds. After all, mutual funds are safer than the stock market. And also, mutual funds are run by skilled managers. Oh yeah?
The facts: In the 1920s and early '30s a lot of folks put their money into "investment trusts." Few checked out the by-laws. When redemptions fell below a certain point, the trusts were frozen. Those left in the pool often ended up with close to zero. Investment trusts did have a lot of leverage: going up and slamming down.
The 1930s and investment trusts left such a bad smell, after World War II the name was changed to "mutual funds." Plenty of mutual funds use paper and computer tricks to boost the so-called yield. The dirty, dangerous game is called derivatives: a game within a game within a Chinese box trick.
Fantasy #2: Banks are safer now than the 1920s and early '30s because there is Federal Deposit Insurance [FDIC].
Fact: About 14 thousand banks with about a trillion dollars of deposits are supposedly protected by FDIC which has approximately $10 billion in reserves. Another insurance company with that kind of rotten ratio would be declared bankrupt. So the FDIC logo on the bank door means nothing!
Fantasy #3: It's safe to keep your valuables in a safe deposit box. After all, it's inside a bank!
Fact: The safe deposit box vault is a separate company, not linked to the bank. The FDIC does not cover the vault company. In the 1930s, many deposit boxes were raided by bank officials when the banks went under. Few complained. After all, who wanted to prove what was inside their box? Some were hiding their valuables from ex-wives and tax collectors.
The sons and daughters of such bank pirates later, after World War II, formed state banks and savings and loans with the stolen goods.
Fantasy #4: A mutual fund advertising it is made up of U.S. government bonds is 100 percent safe. Oh yeah?
The facts: Many offer attractive yields boosted with derivatives monkey-business tricks. Like other funds, these will freeze redemptions at a certain point, and -- you'll get zero.
Fantasy #5: U.S. government bonds are safe. Oh yeah?
Fact: In recent years, Japan has purchased about two-thirds of new issues of U.S. Treasury notes and bonds. Japan's purchases, and those of Saudi Arabia, are the only ones the U.S. secretly promises to redeem in gold. The U.S. Treasury, however, does not have that much gold. In a panic, they may force U.S. citizens to turn in their gold coins and bullion. It happened in 1934, it can happen again.
Throughout history, every nation that went deep in debt eventually renounced their government bonds. The U.S., of course, is next.
Also, the united States lost the Vietnam war. Without exception, throughout history, every ruling class that loses a war is eventually overthrown.
The panic with the falling dollar compared to the yen is far more serious than the press fakers tell you. Japan is making a run on the dollar and a run on selling their U.S. commercial properties. Foreign nations are getting set to get a bigger slice of America by collapsing our government.
