The Man Behind the Curtain – How the Media and the Banks Fool us all

Time to lift the curtain, once and for all – and strip the fraud behind it of its false power over us.

If you’ve ever seen The Wizard of Oz, then you know what I’m talking about. If you haven’t, then here’s a brief overview:


The Wizard of Oz is a 1939 musical fantasy film produced by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. It stars Judy Garland, Frank Morgan, Ray Bolger, Jack Haley, Bert Lahr, Billie Burke and Margaret Hamilton. * * * The film is based on L. Frank Baum’s turn-of-the-century children’s novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, in which a resourceful American girl is snatched up by a Kansas tornado and deposited in a fantastic land of good and wicked witches, a talking scarecrow, a cowardly lion, [and] a tin man[.]

In order to get back home, Dorothy seeks the help of the so-called ‘Wizard of Oz,’ the magical ruler of Emerald City, after whom the movie is named. But, he refuses to help unless she and her friends bring back the Wicked Witch’s broomstick, which they can only get by destroying her.

To make a long story short, Dorothy and her companions go to the trouble of getting the broomstick only to discover that the deep, penetrating and angry voice of the fearful ‘Wizard of Oz’ really belonged to a helpless little man behind a huge curtain. No magic, no powers – just a megaphone and a remarkable knack for ‘making believe’ – aka DECEPTION.

Despite his colossal impotence, the little man managed to manipulate Dorothy and her friends into doing for him that which he could not do for himself. How? By creating illusions.

Why did it work? Because in a world based on lies, PERCEPTION is EVERYTHING.

Dorothy and her friends had everything they needed to get where they wanted, but they didn’t believe in themselves.

Instead, they were duped into doing the Wizard’s bidding – all because they imagined that he was bigger and more powerful than he really was.

By getting them to BELIEVE that he had the power to give them what they wanted if only they got him what he wanted, he was able to turn HIS OBJECTIVES into their objectives.

His ENEMIES became THEIR enemies.

In a similar manner, the mainstream media and the federal reserve banks work in tandem to create OUR Wizard of Oz. The banks are ‘the little man,’ the media acts as ‘their curtain and their megaphone,’ and ‘money’ is the magical power that they wield to get us to do their bidding.

Despite the popular notion that a powerful elite rule the world through an intricate secret network, the vast bulk of power in this world lies squarely within the control of the vast majority of the world’s populations.

However, just like the Wizard of Oz used a megaphone to trick Dorothy and her friends into employing their power in his service, Banksters use the media to create and support the illusion that the legal fiction they call ‘money’ has the power to give us what we want – when it can’t – because it’s all a lie.

What Americans (and everyone else) must realize is that the power that ‘money’ has over our world is just an illusion. Reject it and it becomes useless, powerless, and good for nothing.

As long as we continue to believe that it can ‘solve our problems,’ ‘meet our needs,’ and ‘make us happy,’ we will continue to be led by their LIES and continue to make their objectives our own, even when the ‘yellow brick road’ that we follow leads to our own destruction.
