This area contains a select group of videos and articles that present a history of the United States dollar fiat currency; as well as some shenanigans that have been waged in US foreign policy as we have forced the US dollar down the world’s throat. This history is important to understand because it gives you a basis for why the world’s markets are doing what they are today, as well as how & why we have found ourselves in a currency war that has, in part, helped kickoff the recent trend toward the development of alternative currencies.

US Treasury’s Exchange Stabilization Fund (ESF)
This is an approx. one hour video that is broken into five parts. This series was published in 2011 and the author actually left the country and stopped posting to YouTube not too long after that.
The narrator talks really fast so you might find it helpful to hover over the video until you see the tools menu popup (look for the little gear symbol at the bottom of the video window). Then you can select a speed setting that is a bit slower if you wish.

Harriman to Isis (Daniel Sheehan)
This is an interview from the Coast to Coast AM radio show. Unfortunately this content can only be accessed if you are a C2C member but, in my opinion, this one show is worth the annual subscription price of $54.95 (or $6.95 monthly). This interview completely blows away most of the 20TH century US history we were taught in school.
Daniel Sheehan, Harvard Law School and Harvard Divinity School trained constitutional litigation and appellate attorney joined Jimmy Church for the entire program to discuss the lost and forgotten history between the U.S. and the Middle East, which has led to the rise of ISIS, and what we need to do next to fix the problem with global terrorism and prevent another 9-11 or Paris tragedy.
According to Sheehan, the trouble we see today is ultimately the result of the U.S. and other western powers establishing nation states in the Middle East, setting up fascist potentates there, and occupying oil fields. He connected the rise of the ‘Robber Baron’ era in the late 19th century to a period of U.S. imperialism. “That age of imperialism is what characterized the entire Western culture—the nation state,” he said, noting that when the Bolsheviks overthrew the Czar they set up an entirely opposing system—one the U.S. would actively work to bring down during the majority of the period of the Cold War (1917-1991).
Sheehan outlined how the western powers formed a commission in 1922, chaired by Winston Churchill, to set boundaries that were to be superimposed upon the Middle East. “They arbitrarily and capriciously set up a whole series of boundaries in nation states in the Middle East that had completely tribal cultures for thousands of years… primarily for the purpose of being able to put into power in each of those little square boxes one family,” he explained. The same ‘Robber Barron’ magnates who dominated the U.S. political process would go on to control Middle Eastern oil through lease agreements, with part of the profits going to the to the ruling families, he added.
These magnates were also investment clients in Brown Brothers Harriman, which was led by George Herbert Walker (grandfather of President George H. W. Bush and great-grandfather of President George W. Bush), Sheehan continued. “The whole Nazi party was created by George Herbert Walker and his funders through the Union Bank of New York and they set up the fascist party in Germany [to fight against Bolshevism in Russia],” he revealed. At the end of WWII, $1.2 trillion was recovered from Japanese treasure sites hidden throughout the Philippines. President Truman brought in two partners from Brown Brothers Harriman who used the newfound wealth to finance putting fascists in power throughout Europe, Sheehan disclosed.
As the threat from the Soviet Union diminished in the late 20th century, George H. W. Bush became concerned the U.S. military’s large budget could be cut, Sheehan suggested. Bush prompted Saddam Hussein to invade Kuwait while Dick Cheney lied to Saudi leaders about Hussein’s intentions to move into Kuwait then into Saudi Arabia, he asserted. This allowed for the renewal of exclusive oil lease agreements and an established U.S. military presence in the Middle East, Sheehan said. The groups which we fight against now hate the House of Saud and other fascist despots the West has put into place as well as the West’s occupation of Middle Eastern oil fields, Sheehan recapped.
Sheehan also commented on ISIS and the resulting incursion on our individual civil liberties in the face of anti-terrorism legislation, a potential renewed clash between Russia and U.S., global climate change, and his conversations with Fr. Funes, former director of the Vatican Observatory, about the potential implications of finding an extraterrestrial civilization on one of the newly discovered exoplanets.
This film takes everything on this research page to the next level by outlining how our laws, regulations and business oversight are all constructed to favor the corporate business structure. When I was in music business school in 1985/86 I was taught that the best way to protect yourself and avail yourself to the best opportunities in the business world are to become incorporated. On that advice I had always run my many business endeavors under a corporate structure. However, it wasn’t until I saw this film that I had my “a-ha” moment; finally understanding exactly how different corporate vs. non-corporate citizens are.
This film is definitely produced with an anti-corporate (quasi global citizen) slant, and the conclusions may or may not resonate with you. So I urge you to focus on the stories and the facts presented that really outline the differences (or advantages) of being in the corporate class or not. A class, by the way, that you can simply buy your way into, for not much money, which will allow you the most of what our economy has to offer businesses.
