THIS is a SMALL part of the Reserve Banking System!

Australia s part of the bank for international settlements... part of the 52 member bank.... NOT part of our government OR owned by the people!!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 10491290


CORRECT...my point exactly.

Wasnt it Iceland that told the conventional world's bankers to take a leap a stick it?

And they are doing pretty well for themselves for all accounts.

Certainly they are not being held HOSTAGE by the financial monsters that are slowly...no rapidly now, sucking every drop of human effort from every nation they have their tenticles in,and OUR government just cant seem to wait to get us to join into that meylea too.

Hi Arkay, hi

I am a typical Aussie, also a mother, so I don't get offended or embarrassed... easily. I was LOL to myself about my 'trick'.

Despite being tempted a few times I REFUSE to get a homeloan, interest rates, land rates, etc, and still not able to do what you like on your own land is totally ridiculous even though to own our own place would be awesome without the redtape. Once the kids finish school in a few years would love to have a dozen acres of land and be away from the poli-ticks of the world. Some days joining a 'cult' does sound enticing hehehe.

* * * *

Did you hear on the 'news' yesterday I think, where they said that there is no regulation committee for the banks and their interest rates!!! Another speechless moment!

It doesn't actually take that many people to make a difference, we just need to take a stand.

Responses to THAT question could be very enlightening!

As they say a journey starts with the first step no matter how small.

People need to realise that the government/banks need us, we don't need them. We have proved this time & again with our natural disasters that our communities rally around and do what needs to be done.

I am dealing with some chronic illnesses, so whilst I have plenty of time, money and physical ability is low however I will let you know what I am doing to loosen the shackles and to be more self-reliant.

* Homegrown veges & fruit trees
* Backyard chickens
* Stock up on extra food & water
We have the Carbon Tax starting in a few months, food will definately become more of a luxury than it is now
* Live within own means, minimise or delete credit
* I don't leave any extra cash in the banks - the banking probs of the last couple of days are just the beginning of what is to come...
* Become aware of what exactly is happening in our country and the world and how this personally effects us, what does it mean for YOUR family.

For many families the below has become reality:

a. make your mortgage payment OR
b. pay your bills, to a billion$$$ company OR
c. buy food for your family

Alot of people are sacrificing C. to meet their obligations to A. & B.

This is NOT the kind of world we should be allowing to continue.

WHAT are YOU prepared to do to feed & clothe your children?

Re: Reserve Bank of Australia Blackmailed !!!
People do realise that the banking elite are trying to destroy the global economy right?

If there is a global financial crisis, banks going bankrupt and the troubles in USA and Europe... it is deliberate. It is a media driven downward frenzy, that always has an end game.

In europe at the moment, it is a power grab... that was setup when the EU begun centralising.
Seems clear to me that the foundations for destruction of sovereignty were set then in order for those countries to be crushed and hand over more power. Get them in the door (cook the books). Then the books are exposed and they are destroyed, handing their sovereignty and legislation decisions to the UN/World Bank/EU etc.

In Australia, the night before the RBA decision, I said to the missus that the RBA will hold rates. They'll do this because they know the banks do not plan on dropping interest rates. They know that them taking a cut and the bankers not puts pressure and focus on the banks. This way, nobody really cops it.

The global financial system is going through a controlled demolition (and has been for some time, well before 2008). I believe the next phase is about to begin (GFC II). This has been planned for some time.

Problem. Reaction. Solution.

Crush the economy (money and power grab). Restore confidence to the economy (get the peasants back in). Crush the economy (take some more) etc.

The time is near. They know revolution will take place, this will be our (last) chance to take back our planet.

Australia will eventually be fucked by the explosion of Europe, USA and then as a result China (nobody will be able to buy from them creating less demand for our predominant export commodities).

Fortunately there is a global wave of awakening happening across the planet. (Some) people are finally beginning to question their existence and look through the curtain. The elite know this and wish to get it finished before the peasants realise they've been conned (again.

Reserve Bank of Australia Blackmailed


For several weeks every commentator on Australias financial situation have without exception been reporting their absolute belief that this months interest rate assesment by our RBA ( Reserve Bank Of Australia), would without doubt lead to another rate cut of at least 25 basis points.

All the indicative factors have been blatently evident.

We have 4 major Australian banks here in Australia and while they have been posting record profits it has become a trend amongst them to NOT pass on RBA interest rate reductions, sighting high borrowing costs!!!

Well its impossible to see their difficulties when all of them continue to report record profits, and at a time when just about every other financial instition in the world is struggling.

Just this week we have been reading and hearing all sorts of manovering from our useless politicians and our banks about how they (the banks),wont be passing on these new rate reductions, and now it looks like the pussies ( Male officers at the RBA that have to sit to take a piss),have caved into our banks threats rather than stand firm and let the banks take the fall for their greed.

And all we get from our politicians are toothless commentaries, well lets face it, it was probably them that told the RBA to lie down rather than create a political issue that our politicians havent got the balls to actually address.

Wow, talk about getting being completely screwed over.

The only thing Im glad of is that we moved our mortgage to a building society that instantly does pass on rate moves, and also they dont have the enjoyment of the most corrupt aspect of any bank, they dont have access to fractional banking, so the money that they have is REAL money, not the type of play money that has put this world into the financial crisis it is in.

My suggestion, move to a credit co-operative or building society and let these parasitic leeches feed off each other until they all self destruct.

please research what the US federal reserve means to financial tyranny in this world.

the reserve is owned by a bunch of financial oligarchs who cannot be touched by the govt. people naively assume the reserve is a govt department. our reserve is owned by same idiots making us pay ridiculous interest rates whilst they try and print money out of thin air (fiat money). in america the weather is also privatised so the govt has nothing to do with the reporting of weather. the dangers of this are self evident.

whether you find david wilcock an annoying or not, this article should get those started on the road to understanding the financial tyranny perpetuated by these idiots. however, things are finally changing folks. there is a bit if a stalemate at the moment at the top of financial circles as everyone knows the US dollar CANNOT be the world's reserve currency when it is backed by nothing but air. however, they all cant decide what to do. better than nothing. fingers crossed folks. just grind it out a little longer and we may see some great changes soon. if not...well things are already shit and prob cant get any worse tounge

Im with you, things really are changing and the Rothschilds, the Rocherfellers, the Builderbergs are all things of the past, we, the ordinary people of the world have now clearly demonstrated our concept of how we will have our world run from now on, their days are numbered.

Its just taking a bit of time for everyone to actually realize this and to assemble into the new world WE want, their opinions rules and impositions are already antiquated, just have a look at where the worst places for justice have been dealt with, thats the first symptom, but there is a social hirachy which will inevidibly filter down and as it does it will gain momentum.

We are on the threshold of a new world, a better one where we all get a fair say, and a better deal...no more "elite"

And I am definately NOT promoting the evil NWO concepts for the "elite"coming out of the United Nations.

Well worth the read..........

I absolutely love this, who-ever thought it up is a genius, they need congratulating. enjoy


Dear Ms. Gillard,


Please find below our suggestion for fixing Australia 's economy.


Instead of giving billions of dollars to banks that will squander themoney
on lavish parties and unearned bonuses, use the following plan..
You can call it the Patriotic Retirement Plan:


There are about 10 million people over 50 in the work force.


Pay them $1 million each severance for early retirement with the
following stipulations:


1) They MUST retire.
Ten million job openings - unemployment fixed


2) They MUST buy a new Australian car.
Ten million cars ordered - Car Industry fixed


3) They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage -
Housing Crisis fixed


4) They MUST send their kids to school/college/university -
Crime rate fixed


5) They MUST buy $100 WORTH of alcohol/tobacco a week .......
and there's your money back in duty/tax etc


6) Instead of stuffing around with the carbon emissions trading scheme
that makes us pay for the major polluters, tell the greedy bastards to
reduce their pollution emissions by 75% within 5 years or we shut them down.


It can't get any easier than that!


P.S. If more money is needed, have all members of parliament pay back
their falsely claimed expenses and second home allowances


If you think this would work, please forward to everyone you know. If
not, please disregard.


Grumpies of the World Unite


Also .



Let's put the pensioners in jail and the criminals in a nursing home.


This way the pensioners would have access to showers, hobbies and
walks.
They'd receive unlimited free prescriptions, dental and medical
treatment, wheel chairs etc and they'd receive money instead of paying it
out.
They would have constant video monitoring, so they could be helped
instantly, if they fell, or needed assistance.
Bedding would be washed twice a week, and all clothing would be ironed
and returned to them.
A guard would check on them every 20 minutes and bring their meals and
snacks to their cell.
They would have family visits in a suite built for that purpose.
They would have access to a library, weight room, spiritual
counselling, pool and education.
Simple clothing, shoes, slippers, PJ's and legal aid would be free, on
request.
Private, secure rooms for all, with an exercise outdoor yard, with
gardens.
Each senior could have a PC a TV radio and daily phone calls.
There would be a board of directors to hear complaints, and the guards
would have a code of conduct that would be strictly adhered to.

The criminals would get cold food, be left all alone and unsupervised.
Lights off at 8pm, and showers once a week. Live in a tiny room and pay
$600.00 per week and have no hope of ever getting out.
Think about this (more points of contention):
-------------------------------------------------------------​-----------
THE AUSTRALIAN CONSTITUTION They keep talking about drafting a
Constitution for Iraq ... Why don't we just give them ours?
It was drawn up by a lot of really smart guys, it has worked for
centuries and we're not using it anymore.
-------------------------------------------------------------​-----------
THE 10 COMMANDMENTS
The real reason that we can't have the Ten Commandments posted in a
courthouse or Parliament, is this -
You cannot post 'Thou Shalt Not Steal', 'Thou Shalt Not Commit
Adultery' and 'Thou Shall Not Lie' in a building full of lawyers, judges and
politicians...... It creates a hostile work environment.

Think about this .... If you don't want to forward this for fear of
offending someone -- YOU ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM! It is time for us grumpy
old folk of Australia to speak up!

I thought that a female would have more sense, and then when it finally happens we get a woman who backstabs the leader of her own party and uses the mining industry heavy hitters to take over while her party was already in power.

Surely people can see this means she is indebted to those corporate magnates and was put there to make the system better for them and not us.

I knew we were on the same page.

Already doing all the things you are, and the gardening, preserving things are actually quite enjoyable.

Home smells like grandma's!

Not to mention that they are rewarding activities that occupy your time without associated costs, but actually save you money.

When I shop, I look for the non perishables and when they are on special, by at least 10%.

When I see that I buy up big, really big, so that over time I have sufficient supplies of those items that I never have to buy them again till they are again on special, this saves us heaps, but initially it does cost quite a bit more until you begin to get into the complete cycle, the only other thing to remember is that it is imperative to continue this practise, otherwise you loose the benefits.

Another good suggestion and weve seen small examples of weekend "growers markets" springing up that have been pretty successful, so maybe get together with your friends and decide the best model to make one of those work for you.

Heres an idea, some of us are good at growing certain thing and not others, for the life of me I cannot grow lettuce, but I grow capsicums like nobody else, so do the obvious, I grow too many capsicums for our use and I aswap some for lettuce...from that point , bingo you have the beginnings of a co-operative model.

If sufficiently successful or whatever, it could even be worth leasing some land and by way of logging hours spent working it, will equate into some sort of food benefit/reward, the rest could be sold to pay for ongoings.

Anyway, just simple things that can work so again it thanks to MzTreeChick for floating in more excellent and practical things for us to ponder on, and like she so aptly puts it, it doesent take much, etc

Thanks again.

Thanks Alpha Leona.

This thread completely dropped off the map over the weekend, Aussie interest in the main, and the weekend too, but I'm bringing it back on as there were a few things that were raised, that warranted discussion.

I just needed not to be sitting in front of my computer all weekend as apparently neither did anyone else.

Again thanks for the stars and pin request.

Also thanks to MzTree for her bump, I knew youd be there supporting and youve contributed so much to both this and another for which I am of course greatful..

Hope everyone had a good weekend.

cheers

Re: Reserve Bank of Australia Blackmailed !!!
Just heard on the evening news, another of the big 4 banks has announced an independant (from the RBA) rise of 0.1% in their interest rates.

Expect the other two to follow next week..!

Im about to take bets that these so and so's are colluding...whey arent they being investigated?

Oh thats right our government doesent run our country, big buisness does, and those pansies just do their bidding and talk their way along until the next bs distraction comes along.

It would not even surprise me to hear of some form or other fresh "news" come along next week to take the heat out of all this bank manovering...

Paranoid, maybe.

But just lets keep an open mind and see what does unfold next week.

Also, isnt it interesting that they make their gutless announcement at close of business on a Friday...talk about manipulating people.

All I can say is, that even though it did at the time cost, our mortgage was moved after the first of those contemptuous bank moves and by now we are hundreds, if not thousands in front of those poor and for reasons unknown loyal, customers, maybe they just like throwing their money away.

Come on folks...move or lose!

From my post above...

Well looks like I was right on the mark, by some miraculous process, all the big 4 have now "RAISED" their rates.

Now DO NOT even suggest that when I began this thread suggesting that the Reserve Bank was being blackmailed or threatened that anything BUT that was in the wind, so now Im prepared to say it straight up.

This whole senario has been a complete set up from the outset.

We are even getting the same old totally predictable retoric (drivel), coming from the Treasurer...

[link to au.finance.yahoo.com]

Mr Swan has repeatedly urged bank customers to switch if their institution lifts interest rates and says Government policies have made it easier to do so.

Personally I believe that the Australian consumer is hugely entitled to greater considerations than that.

Our banks enjoy complete government guarantees, they operate under "fractional" banking arrangements, and I dont see why their stockholders should be entitled to returns that are higher than those of other companies suffering with the current global conditions, this is clearly unbalanced, unreasonable and unfair.
