Post From KTFA By Memphis on February 17th, 2014, Behind the Curtain
If you have been wondering why the debt ceiling crisis is not front and center of the mainstream news then this post will be of interest. This came to my email last week and IMO is not only a reliable answer but also tells a story of the depths of control in our media.
Also in this post we will discuss briefly an unfolding trend with pensions in all developed nations as government's set their eyes on this low hanging fruit and lastly, some further discussion of our media in America and the blame that must be laid at their feet. My childhood days of watching Walter Cronkite seem a distant memory...

note: [added comments] here are mine:
[note: The borrower is servant to the lender...]
Behind the Curtain China and others warned the US that if it played games with the debt, it would be the last the US would be able to sell its debt to foreign lands.
This is also why Obama announced tax-free long-term bonds for Americans to bring the debt home. This is why there is no fight this time over the debt ceiling.
They [the FED] have also been manipulating short-term rates to keep them so low, they have wiped out pensions and savers.
Memphis: [note: On the surface this appears nothing other than unintended consequences but the more I study and learn about the coming power grab against the multiple trillions in US pensions the more inclined I am to allow for a deeper (more devious ) purpose.
YES low rates are great for managing our public debt but it has also contributed to the slow death of our economic engine that no longer fires on all cylinders.
To be clear, my suspicion (not conviction) is that the pension bubble (I hate the overuse of this word!) is being EXASPERATED (magnified and accelerated) by the market manipulation which will set up our politicians to swoop in and save the day in the not to distant future.
This will be done in the spirit of "never let a good crisis go to waste" and we will wake up one morning to learn that all or part of these monies are now to be held and controlled by our gov't and secured (I use THAT word loosely) by US bonds.
Pensioners will still get their checks on the 1st of the next month and the public outcry will not equal the need as we have been slowly conditioned.]
[back to the article...]
Glen Downs stated on his blog that there would be no fight [over the debt ceiling]. Every source we have tells the same tale of Behind the Curtain.
Memphis [note: the balance of this blog is a good reminder to us all and therefore of great value in that If we do not recognize such realities then our ability to think critically is pretty much going to fall flat right out of the gate...]
The mainstream press will never report the truth. They comply and never dig too deep. In Russia, the government just shut down media that was reporting the truth in Ukraine.
What goes on in the USA [media] is simply voluntary compliance. It is also why Snowden had to go to London [media] to report the truth.
There is absolutely NO mainstream press in the United States that will ever tell the REAL story. Journalists are not the problem – it is their editors put in place by the owners.
Memphis [note: I am editing this post here to add a further thought. Many of the things we read in the news are affecting our ability to think freely and allow for true change that is sorely needed. I just opened an email from Glenn Beck and found one of the headlines to read:
"Rand Paul vs. Ted Cruz: Who is the better 2016 candidate?"
Let's talk about this headline. What we need to recognize here is that the entire discussion (the debate) of WHO is best qualified to led our nation has already been defined for us.
Speaking here in strictly non-partisan terms, we are being subconsciously directed to disregard any independent thought, or candidate, and " get in line", having been told our choices.
Well This may seem unimportant to some readers but the days ahead will witness a growing trend towards a true 3rd party candidate as people begin to wake up and...rise up. Don't be limited in your thinking and miss this as it unfolds....]
Blessings, Memphis next post....FATCA -re-visited
