In loving memory of Hermann Scheer (1944-2010).

The accomplishments of Hermann Scheer of Germany are very valuable to humanity. He was a member of the German parliament and was very instrumental in drafting legislation which has resulted in a very dramatic increase in solar power in Germany and many countries on this Earth.

Hermann Scheer died in 2010 at the age of 66.

It was shortly after he exposed a 60 billion dollar breach of contract by Germany’s privately owned nuclear power corporations.

In 1999 he was the major force in establishing feed-in tariffs for the German people that allowed the people to install solar energy equipment and sell excess energy back to German utilities. One can witness in Germany solar panels on houses and commercial buildings everywhere. The feed-in tariff legislation has been hugely successful for the German people and economy.

Many businesses have been established and employ a large number of people thanks to the efforts of Hermann Scheer. He was president of The European Association for Renewable Energy (Eurosolar) and general chairman of The World Council for Renewable Energy.

Scheer recognized that humanity had come to a crossroads and that a replacement was necessary for fossil fuels and nuclear energy. He strongly believed that the worldwide use of solar energy could and must be sought to free humanity from these harmful addictions. He thought that the concentrated power of monopolies in energy industries was a major challenge.

As those who own the corporate energy monopolies are against any change or transformation of energy policies because of their risk to lose money, Scheer strongly emphasized that the people must start energy changes. Those in power will not change the things as they are simply because their profits will decrease in perhaps a large degree.

Scheer helped draft laws in Germany which gave priority to renewable energies which unleashed the renewable energy industry in Germany. Aspects of the legislation guaranteed all Germans access to the electrical grid with a set amount  paid for each kilowatt-hour produced by citizens. This fee had strong guarantees without any caps to guarantee investor protections.

The result was a 100 billion Euros investment in the following ten years in photovoltaic solar power, wind power, hydrogas and other renewables while utility monopolies invested 10 billion. The conventional power structure has strong influence on those inside government where varying types of corruption exist. Utility corporations pay lawmakers after they leave office by hiring them.

What is existent is a form of legalized corruption where governments have become puppets of monopolies in not only the energy industry but all other industries where large sums of money are  found. Teddy Roosevelt achieved the most success in breaking up monopolies when he broke up the giant Standard Oil. Monopoly is dangerous for society and the public interest.

The presidents who followed Teddy Roosevelt have been unable to match the success he had during his time in office. Big oil, the coal industry and nuclear energy industry have exerted tremendous influence on members of congress through the threat of withholding campaign contributions while giving those contributions to political opponents.

Scheer believed that solar energy is the “Energy of the People”. The tremendous benefits of solar and other renewable energies are good for both economic activity and energy independence. “The Solar Economy” would overcome the irresponsible dependency of more than one-third of defense budgets allocated solely for protecting energy production, supply and transport. The wars in Iraq were all about oil. If “The Solar Economy” would have been implemented and given the chance it so deserves years ago perhaps these wars with their heart breaking human suffering would never have started.

Thanks in large part to the great efforts of Hermann Scheer the German people have become more energy independent and simply happier. The people of America need to start asking “Why Not Here?” Ninety percent of the people want the changes to renewable energies like solar and wind to happen because they understand that solar energy and wind energy are FREE!

Now in America, energy change must come from and originate at the local, state and regional levels. It is at these levels where strength and influence must be exercised to overcome the tremendous centralization of power in the federal government. People need to become aware that this is a technology revolution where they are engaged in a fight between an energy dictatorship and energy democracy.

Society needs to become mobilized to demand alternative, green energies which will stimulate jobs and economic growth. Barack Obama cannot act autonomously as there are many developments being blocked by powerful structures in government. There must be loud calls for the removal of barriers and rules which have favored traditional, conventional energy monopolies and the continuance of the status quo.

Clearing the restrictions to development of “The Solar Economy” should be accomplished not only for economic reasons but for ethical reasons as well. “The Solar Economy” will end the negative consequences of continuing to allow dominant fossil fuel and nuclear energy monopolies. The United States of America is not independent. The American people have landed in an unbelievable situation which endangers self-determination and sovereignty and freedom.

Renewable energy, “The Solar Economy” would allow the American people to escape from the dead-end street where energy payments have placed us in dependency. Renewable energies, with their tremendous economic benefits, give us the chance to grow in a healthy sustainable way while also meeting ethical challenges.

In Germany hundreds of cities and counties have decided to go for 100% renewable energy and the trend is increasing in intensity around the world. Germany and other countries around the world are taking action to build solar industries producing a wanted energy movement. Ecologically, economically and democratically beneficial 100% renewable energy goals have motivated the people to the point where the movement is unstoppable.

The hero of the green century is Hermann Scheer.

A fast energy shift is possible, said Hermann Scheer from experience. Please, please research this great man and you will be very impressed with his accomplishments while learning the great potential for humanity. Wherever your soul now resides Hermann Scheer, we thank you profoundly.

“It does not matter where his body lies; there the grass is growing… But where his spirit lies, that would be a good place to be.”

– Black Elk speaking on Crazy Horse

Thank you, Hermann Scheer.

All we can say to you is oh my god when beginning this section on money and the printing of currencies by private banks around planet Earth. For those of you reading this that have an understanding of the international monetary system and how it operates, the oh my god moment has already occurred. For those of you reading this who have yet to gain an understanding of the monetary system, you will be experiencing the oh my god moment as well.

Understanding the way money comes into circulation and by whom is of the highest urgency at this time in human history. It cannot be stressed strongly enough just how important this issue is to every man, woman and child on this planet Earth now. Genetically modified food and the world’s financial systems are the most important issues that humanity must deal with at this time. Let me repeat this so you understand totally: there are no more important issues.

Everyone on this planet must become aware of both the historical and present realities of this worldwide monetary system. If you are aware of the realities you must do something to change them. When you become aware of these realities you must do something to change them. There is no choice but that the changes must be made. Change must come and soon. You can rest assured change will come and soon.

The state of affairs of the international financial situation has reached the point where it simply has become untenable (untenable adj. 1. being such that defense or maintenance is impossible). The damage that humanity has incurred has been incalculable. The damage done has been simply beyond comprehension. The damage done has reached such a high level that it is for all practical purposes inevitable that awareness on this issue will become the most important story on Earth.

Thank  the Creator that the change is coming and that the arrival of this change is at hand.

Banker Mayer Amschel Rothschild said in 1790:

“Let me issue and control a nation’s money and I care not who writes the laws.”

If you ask most people what is the Federal Reserve the typical response would be something like “Oh, that’s the part of the government that prints the money” or “they’re in Washington; they print the money.” Most people believe that the Federal Reserve system is a branch of the United States government. Most believe the Federal Reserve is a public hence non-profit institution. Those of you who have not yet had your oh my god moment, understand. The Federal Reserve is not a branch of the United States government. The Federal Reserve system is a system of privately owned banks. Private; not public. For-profit; not non-profit.

This is the first fact that you must understand.

We will take the journey into this slowly. We will come to the end of this journey well aware of the gravity of the situation for human beings everywhere. Take your time. What we are trying to do here is increase your awareness to the point where action is not just necessary, but demanded. We pray that the following information will not hurt you in any way. The information describes the reality which we as humanity are living and experiencing at this time.

Let us begin our journey with some general thoughts from history about money. We will look at words from historical figures. There has been a kind of war going on for hundreds of years between private bankers and those opposed to them. The central reason for this war has been (and is) who will control the issue of the currency. The battles have been fought (and are now being fought) throughout the centuries in almost every country on Earth. Let us look at some historical quotes and thoughts to get a feel and start the discussion.

Anacreon (568-478 B.C.) Greek lyric poet:

“Cursed he be above all others who is enslaved by love of money. Money takes the place of brothers, money takes the place of parents, money brings us to war and slaughter.”

Sophocles (496-406 B.C.) Greek tragic poet:

“Of all the foul growths current in the world, the worst is money. Money drives men from home, plunders proud cities, and perverts honest minds to shameful practice, godlessness and crime.”

Socrates (470-399 B.C.) Greek stonemason, general, philosopher:

“Are you not ashamed of heaping up in the greatest amount of money and honor and reputation, and caring so little about wisdom and truth and the greatest improvement of the soul, which you never regard or heed at all?’

Diogenes (400-325 B.C.) Greek philosopher:

“Love of money is the mother of all evils.”

Aristotle (384-322 B.C.) Greek philosopher:

“Money was intended to be used in exchange, but not to increase at interest, which means the birth of money from money, is applied to the breeding of money… Of all modes of getting wealth this is the most unnatural.”

Terence (190-159 B.C.) Latin playwright:

“How unjust it is, that they who have but little should be always adding something to the wealth of the rich.”

Francis Bacon (1561-1626) English essayist, philosopher:

“Above all things, good policy is to be used that the treasure and monies in state be not gathered into few hands… And money is like muck, no good except it be spread.”

Thomas Fuller (1654-1734) English clerk:

“The pleasures of the rich are bought with the tears of the poor.”

Voltaire (1694-1778) French philosopher:

“In general, the art of government consists in taking as much money as possible from one class of citizens and to give it to the other.”

John C. Calhoun (1782-1850) American Statesman:

“A power has risen up in the government greater than the people themselves, consisting of many, and various, and powerful interests, combined into one mass, and held together by the cohesive power of the vast surplus in the banks.”

Washington Irving (1783-1859) American writer:

“Almighty dollar.”

George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) Irish dramatist:

“The seven deadly sins; food, clothing, firing, rent, taxes, respectability and children. Nothing can lift these seven millstones from man’s neck but money; and the spirit cannot soar until the millstones are lifted.”

André Suares (1868-1948) French writer:

“As one wages war with the blood of others so one makes a fortune with the money of others.”

Woodrow Wilson (1856-1924) American President:

“The great monopoly in this country is the money monopoly. So long as it exists, our old variety of freedom and individual energy of development are out of the question.”

So we have a sense that the money issue has been with us a very long time. Why are we making this attempt to reach people about this information? This is a question which needs to be thought about as we all have our particular reasons for every action taken. Perhaps it has to do with our agreement with the spiritual philosophy of the Native American. This is the spiritual philosophy which deals with the seven generations.

One who accepts this philosophy comes to a point when considering the effects of any action to keep the seventh generation in mind. Every action must not result in any negative consequences for those coming seven generations into the future. The actions must be determined to either do no harm or improve the conditions for those coming seven generations from now.

If this seventh generation philosophy and spirituality were common and practiced seven generations ago, then we would not see ourselves in the present unfortunate situation. Those who took the actions seven generations ago would have chosen other actions; actions which would have helped their fellow brothers and sisters instead of manipulating them. Unfortunately the choices made were those which failed to take the well-being of humanity into consideration.

If we understand that all life and all things are sacred then we cannot willfully do harm. We must fight the urge to look for revenge when we understand what has happened for hundreds of years. Anger is never called for however difficult it is to not feel the emotion. Humanity has simply committed error through the centuries. First forgive then correct the error.

These historical and continuing errors must and will be dealt with. They will be dealt with because the human race has come to see them as errors. We will be at a spiritual level where these corrections will occur naturally. It will be simply impossible not to make the corrections because we understand that not to do so would result in harm to our brothers and sisters in the human family.

So have no doubt that we the human race are improving our condition at a rapid pace. Our collective future is one that is going to evidence the common experience of love, peace, justice, fairness and happiness.

The common people of America along with all other countries on Earth that use debt-based monetary systems have been, and are now being, robbed blind. The cause needs to be understood; fully understood. National debts occur when governments spend more than they take in with taxes. In the United States the government then issues United States government bonds. Government bonds equal debt. Let us look at how we arrived at this sad state of affairs.

In 1934 Robert Hemphill, credit manager of the Federal Reserve bank of Atlanta said:

“Someone has to borrow every dollar we have in circulation… If the banks create ample money we are prosperous; if not, we starve. When one gets a complete grasp of the picture, the tragic absurdity of our hopeless position is… incredible. It is the most important subject intelligent persons can investigate and reflect upon.”

The United States government can issue all the money it needs. At present all of our money comes to circulation through debt. What is the reason that we the people of the United States have not heard of this? What the government cannot raise in taxes it must borrow from the private banks of the Federal Reserve. The government recently actually borrowed one trillion dollars and then turned around and gave it to the banks in the form of bailouts. Could those in Congress actually be unaware of what is happening? You cannot borrow yourself out of debt; you cannot drink yourself sober.

Most citizens do not understand what the cause of the debt problem is. Most citizens do not understand there is a problem. The battle for the control of the monetary system has gone on for hundreds of years. You will not read about the battle in your history books.

The only time Jesus Christ got angry was when he confronted the money changers. When coming upon the money changers “He made a whip out of cords and… He scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables.” (John 2:15 of the Holy Bible) The money changers were the bankers of their day and they were stealing from the poor.

An assassination was attempted on the life of President Andrew Jackson while he received many death threats. Presidents Abraham Lincoln, James Garfield and John Kennedy may have all been assassinated because of their push for monetary reform.

Is it possible that Jesus Christ was killed for confronting the money changers? The money changers were the bankers the of their day. Think about it. For the love of money is the root of all evil.
