“Always remember... Rumors are carried by haters, spread by fools, and accepted by idiots.”
Ziad K. Abdelnour, Economic Warfare: Secrets of Wealth Creation in the Age of Welfare Politics

“Trust is earned, respect is given, and loyalty is demonstrated. Betrayal of any one of those is to lose all three.”
Ziad K. Abdelnour, Economic Warfare: Secrets of Wealth Creation in the Age of Welfare Politics

“As you grow older, you realize it becomes less important to have more friends and more important to have real ones.

People nowadays don't know the true meaning of friendship and loyalty.

People always suddenly miss you more once they see how much happier you are without them.

Learn the real from the fake....and don't worry about the mistakes you make.

There are no mistakes in life, just lessons.

The only people worthy to be in your life are the ones that help you through the hard times and laugh with you after the hard times pass.”
Ziad K. Abdelnour, Economic Warfare: Secrets of Wealth Creation in the Age of Welfare Politics

“It is an oft-repeated axiom that a person can learn a whole lot about
a society by how it treats its poor; but just as much may be learned
by looking at how that same society treats its rich. Indeed, the economic
future of the poor—and our nation—will be determined in the coming decades by how we treat the people in this country who create great wealth. It will be determined by our understanding of the
so-called rich and by our need to foster and protect this minority of
true wealth creators.”
Ziad K. Abdelnour

“We are in an economic war. It is a war between those who create
wealth and those who believe they have some sort of divine mandate
to appropriate wealth. They don’t have such an authoritative command.
I don’t think they ever did. We have tried their command-andcontrol
methods for nearly a century because they said they knew
better. It is now obvious that they didn’t.”
Ziad K. Abdelnour

“Almost every Fed chairman in the past 60 years has manipulated
interest rates to brighten the economic outlook for incumbent presidents
or newly elected presidents who won by large margins. The
purchasing power of the U.S. dollar has fallen 94 percent in the past
100 years. The only way you can create inflation is by creating more
money that is backed by the same reserve assets; the Fed is the only
entity that can create more money. Ben Bernanke’s quantitative easing
(QE) programs have pumped billions of unfunded dollars into the
economy, thereby setting us up for massive inflation in the very near
future. If this isn’t a form of financial terrorism, it is incompetence of the highest order.”
Ziad K. Abdelnour

“The wealth of America isn’t an inventory of goods; it’s an organic,
living entity, a fragile, pulsing fabric of ideas, expectations, loyalties,
moral commitments, visions, and people. To slice it up like an apple
pie and redistribute it would destroy it just as surely as trying to share
Stephen Hawking’s intellect by sharing slices of his brain would surely
kill him.”
Ziad K. Abdelnour

“We are on the edge of economic collapse unless we wake up and
forcibly take back control of our government and economy. Over the
past 100 years, the game has been rigged, slowly and piecemeal at
first, always in the name of serving the greater good, preventing the
next bubble or providing greater transparency and security. It is as if
the American people are suffering from battered spouse syndrome; the
politicians, the greedy bankers, and the Fed all lie to us while they
steal our wealth and our liberty. Every time we call them on it, they
promise to never do it again if we’ll just give them one more chance.
So we let it slide and then act shocked when they do it to us again.
Maybe we should have our collective head examined.”
