Philip Danforth Armour is
a member of the Board of Trade which controls the
price of pork, bacon, beef,
wheat and grain.
Dealing in futures on the Board of
Trade is a system originated for the purpose of enabling those with immense
wealth to force stocks up or down without
any regard to the actual value for monopolistic purposes.
Through their control of the Boards of Trade and
their monopoly of the traffic in farming
products they put down the price of
farming products until it was impossible for
the farmers to pay off the
English manufactures and the mercantile
shipping houses started branch houses in New York filled with high quality
In order to monopolize trade the drummer system, originated
in England, was brought to America and most of the trade of the country ended
up moving through the New York branch houses.
The Western and Southern
merchants had been in the habit of visiting New York City, once or twice a
year, to buy new stocks of goods.
Carpet-baggers offer the
Southern and Western merchants goods of better quality at lower prices than
they can get in New York.
New York merchants fail and retire from
business as they can no longer compete with the rock bottom prices.
1873 In order to accommodate the
import merchants of New York City American tariff duties are payable, not when the
goods are placed in the warehouse, but when they are taken out for sale.
The London merchants, under the American warehouse system, could store
goods in the New York warehouse, free of charge, and let them lie there for any
length of time; and might if they chose withdraw them without payment of duty
and ship them to any other market.
It was cheaper to store goods in the
New York Custom House rather than in their own warehouses in London as the US
government built the warehouses and offered them free use of it for the storage
of their goods.
"I found New York merchants were
putting down cotton goods to an
extremely low price, one-tenth of a cent a yard below the cost of
Drummers were everywhere urging merchants through the
country to buy, on account of the low price, which they said would not last
very long .
I at first wondered how, with
the protection of a high tariff,
the price of cotton goods could be so
I knew it was not accidental, for the fixed price,
one-tenth of a cent a yard below the cost of
production in New England, showed that it was
done by design." - L.B.

"A few men buy all the wheat
of the country.
There is no competition; the railroads fix the
price of wheat and grains to suit themselves, and grind the farmer down into
They not only plunder the
farmer in the price, but they cheat in the measurement which fixes the
quality of the wheat.
Several years ago, #1 wheat was 90 cents a
bushel, #2 75 cents, and #3, 60 cents a bushel .
The wheat was so
graded by the buyers, that all wheat weighing 60 lbs. and over to the bushel
was rated #1 ; all wheat weighing 56 lbs. and over, #2; and all wheat weighing
52 lbs. and over #3.
If the wheat were measured in the good old
fashioned way in an honest half bushel measure, most of the wheat would weigh
60 lbs. to the bushel, and be rated as #1.
These monopolists cheat
systematically in the measure.
They use an oval gallon measure, easily
battered, by accident, to diminish its capacity.
Into such a small
measure the wheat will not pack close, when poured very gently out of a pitcher
They then weigh the gallon and multiply by 8 to find
the weight of a bushel.
By this system of measurement little of the wheat rates as #1; and very
much of it is rated as #3.
In this way, when #1 wheat was selling at 90
cents a bushel, this system of measuring caused much of it to be rated as #3,
which brought only 60 cents a bushel .
When the wheat is sold out of
the elevators, where it was under pressure, all of it would weigh 60 lbs. to
the bushel, and be sold as #1!" - LB Woolfolk

The high price
of flour in comparison with wheat reveals agents of the money power have a
large number of flour mills in their possession.
The occasional sharp

competitors and get possession of the entire business.

In Kansas, a very
large proportion of the farms are mortgaged - a much larger proportion than in
Iowa or Missouri.

This website defines a
new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The
author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has
forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has
been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their
agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race.
Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious
practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their philosophical ideology.
This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of
the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion
based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no
supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is
encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer
through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the
spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The
Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on
this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their
religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."
This web site
in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the
violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels
desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already
controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global
industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse
of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of
global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation
does not occur at the point of a gun.
American social mores and values
have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international
cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to
deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional
buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior
corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction
of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to
the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction
and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been
directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that
further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
