Have Bankers Overthrown The US Government? Yes!

BIS Tower Building, Basel

“The powers of financial capitalism had another far reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements, arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences. The apex of the system was the Bank for International Settlements in Basle, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the worlds’ central banks which were themselves private corporations. The growth of financial capitalism made possible a centralization of world economic control and use of this power for the direct benefit of financiers and the indirect injury of all other economic groups.”
Tragedy and Hope: A History of The World in Our Time (Macmillan Company, 1966,) Professor Carroll Quigley of Georgetown University, highly esteemed by his former student, William Jefferson Blythe Clinton.

  • To be totally correct, Illuminist banksters have owned the US government since at least 1913 with the creation of the FedRes. Both the Republican and Democrat parties are fully owned subsidiaries! All the left/right, Republican/Democrat, Capitalist/Communist, Liberal/Conservative … paradigms are created (false paradigms) by these Illuminists. It is part of their Hegelian Dialectic of divide and conquer, building up enemies to set them into conflict with one another. And thereafter sell themselves(ie Illuminists) as the saviors of the world ! 

“The idea was that those who direct the overall conspiracy could use the differences in those two so-called ideologies [marxism/fascism/socialism v. democracy/capitalism] to enable them [the Illuminati] to divide larger and larger portions of the human race into opposing camps so that they could be armed and then brainwashed into fighting and destroying each other.”
Myron Fagan

 “The real menace of our republic is this invisible government which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy length over city, state and nation. Like the octopus of real life, it operates under cover of a self created screen….At the head of this octopus are the Rockefeller Standard Oil interests and a small group of powerful banking houses generally referred to as international bankers. The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both political parties.
New York City Mayor John F. Hylan, 1922

  • John Truman Wolfe is highly perceptive in this article:
      
    This time it is not the mobile shock troops of Nazi Panzer divisions storming into the countries of Easter Europe, it is a group of pin-striped international bankers operating out of a black glass building in Basel Switzerland. And it is we Americans that are now under foreign control. The mere fact that you haven’t seen the blood-torn bodies does not mean the invasion was any less successful. The carefully crafted financial crisis was all that was needed
      ….
    Like a stealth computer virus covertly morphing into your hard drive, the enemy, aided by its divisions on Wall Street has taken control of our very financial lives without a single shot being fired. Sounds conspiratorial doesn’t it? But whether it is a conspiracy or not, is not the point – the details of the coup, it’s planning and execution, are spelled out in my book,
    Crisis by Design.
     
    In an
    earlier post you learned that the International Bank of Settlements’ “Financial Stability Board” (FSB) was given power over the U.S. financial system when Barack Obama signed an agreement along with other members of the G-20, creating what they have called a Global Monetary Authority. Never mind that Congress is required to approve (or reject) such agreements, they aren’t even looking. The anti-virus software has been disabled by lobbyist with checkbooks – the ultimate power to persuade for many on the Hill.
     
    The government is like a human body with no immune response, and the miraculous medicine to cure the disease – the Constitution – is a ghost of its former self. Lacking its defense by those very lawmakers who are sworn to uphold its tenants, the Constitution is alike on life support. The President? A facilitator of the coup. Congress? Addicted to debt like a junkie on Horse.
     
    The American people?  Mostly in the dark.
    Few know that the fiscal autonomy of this country has, to a large degree, been dished off to a handful of bankers in who fly into Basel, Switzerland every couple of months for board meetings behind very closed doors.
     
    Few know that the agreement signed by the President on April 2, 2009, gives the FSB the obligation to dictate to member countries (of which we are one) “specification of the structure and functions of government”.

UK: Winter May Be Coldest In 1000 Years!

Icy outlook: Gibsons cave in Bowlees, Teesdale as the severe winter weather continues to grip the UK. Source: Daily Mail UK.

  • So much for the man-made global warming fraud ! There are still many shills in the MSM selling the global warming causes Big Freeze meme. The New York Times for example. These idiots never give up, they just tell an even bigger lie! Give a rest you idiots. See also: Brace yourselves for a ‘mini ice age’: This winter set to be coldest in 300 YEARS!
     
    WINTER MAY BE COLDEST IN 1000 YEARS
    BRITAIN’S winter is the coldest since 1683 and close to being the chilliest in nearly 1,000 years. Latest figures reveal that the average temperature since December 1 has been a perishing -1C. That makes it the second coldest since records began in 1659.
     
    The chilliest on record was 1683/84, when the average was -1.17C and the River Thames froze over for two months. But with January and February to come, experts believe we could suffer the most freezing cold winter in the last 1,000 years. The Met Office’s Charlie Powell said: “It’s rare to have cold this prolonged, with temperatures falling incredibly low.
     
    “Temperatures will be down again by Sunday, with nights below freezing and daytimes below average at 3C to 5C. Our outlook forecast to January 26 shows temperatures 2C or 3C below average, frost and ice likely and the highest chance of snow or sleet over the northern half of the UK.”
     
    Although official weather records only go back to 1659, weather experts said the centuries from 1100 to 1500, dubbed the “Medieval warm period”, would not have produced winters as cold as today. So 2011 could end up being the coldest winter of the last millennium. Brian Gaze, of The Weather Outlook, said: “It’s very unusual to have a sub-zero month.”

1933: Zionists Sign a Deal With Hitler – The Transfer Agreement! Zionists are Godless Criminal Thugs!

  • Jews Against Zionism: (emphasis mine)
      
    It has been the age-old intention of Zionism to intentionally stir up anti-Semitism anywhere possible, and even more commonly, to take advantage of any Jewish suffering anywhere in order to enhance its cause Indeed, hatred of Jews and Jewish suffering is the oxygen of the Zionist movement, and from the very beginning has been to deliberately incite hatred of the Jew and then, in feigned horror, use it to justify the existence of the Zionist state – this is, of course, Machiavellianism raised to the highest degree. Thus, the Zionists thrive on hatred and suffering of Jews, and seek to benefit thereby through keeping Jews in perpetual fear, causing them to ignore the true nature of Zionism, and instead to consider the Zionist state is their salvation.
      .
    As far as Zionism is concerned, the founder of Zionism and apostate, Theodor Herzl,  sought to intensify hatred of the Jew in order to enhance the cause of political Zionism. Here are some of his “pearls”:
     
    “It is essential that the sufferings of Jews. . . become worse. . . this will assist in realization of our plans. . .I have an excellent idea. . . I shall induce anti-semites to liquidate Jewish wealth. . . The anti-semites will assist us thereby in that they will strengthen the persecution and oppression of Jews.  The anti-semites shall be our best friends”. (From his Diary, Part I, pp. 16)
      …..
    There is a huge amount of literature describing how the Zionists made it very difficult to save Jews during and after World War II. As various individuals and organizations were trying to arrange departures of Jews to western countries, the Zionists worked overtime to prevent this from happening. They expressed the opinion that building up the Jewish population of Palestine was more important than enabling Jews to go to third countries, and they insisted to western powers that Jews should not be accepted anywhere other than Palestine. Indeed, Yitzchak Greenbaum, a famous Zionist, proclaimed that “one cow in Palestine was worth more than all the Jews in Poland.” The infamous David Ben-Gurion said in 1938:
     
    “If I knew it was possible to save all the children in Germany by taking them to England, and only half of the children by taking them to Eretz Israel, I would choose the second solution. For we must take into account not only the lives of these children but also the history of the people of Israel.”

Revelation 2:9 - .... and I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.

Israel War Crimes, Your Tax Dollars At Work!

US War Addiction Needle Hits on Health & Kids!

  • General Smedley Butler:
     
    WAR is a racket. It always has been.
    It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives.
     
    A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small “inside” group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes.
     
    In the World War [I] a mere handful garnered the profits of the conflict. At least 21,000 new millionaires and billionaires were made in the United States during the World War. That many admitted their huge blood gains in their income tax returns. How many other war millionaires falsified their tax returns no one knows.
     
    How many of these war millionaires shouldered a rifle? How many of them dug a trench? How many of them knew what it meant to go hungry in a rat-infested dug-out? How many of them spent sleepless, frightened nights, ducking shells and shrapnel and machine gun bullets? How many of them parried a bayonet thrust of an enemy? How many of them were wounded or killed in battle?
     
    Out of war nations acquire additional territory, if they are victorious. They just take it. This newly acquired territory promptly is exploited by the few — the selfsame few who wrung dollars out of blood in the war. The general public shoulders the bill.

Inflation Heard Round the World !

  • Do you believe the western MSM, in particular the American MSM, propaganda of no inflation but deflation is the problem? If you don’t eat, don’t drive, don’t use heating oil, gas, electricity … and are dead, there is no inflation! Of course, inflation is the problem. The politician snakes in DC have ‘cleverly’ removed food and energy prices from inflation figures so as to hide it. But just ask Main Street whether groceries are cheaper, oil is cheaper, daily expense coming down… The answer is obvious: they are all rising!
      
    Inflation Heard Round the World
    Rising commodity prices threaten global economy … Australians naturally regard high commodity prices as good, but they are now reaching levels that pose a threat to the world economy … A range of forces operates on commodity markets. The weather in Europe, the continuing strength of the emerging economies and, for some of Australia’s commodities, the recent floods all play a role. A common factor is the rise of financial investment, which has surpassed the levels of 2008. In part, there is a simple recognition by investors of the China story, with commodities providing a good way to obtain leverage. But there is also a flight from currencies, which has seen gold double since late 2008 with a 20 per cent rise this year. Many investors seek alternatives to the euro and the US dollar. – The Australian
      …
    Free-Market Analysis: When the Bell began reporting on Chinese price inflation a year-and-half ago, it was unfashionable and uncomfortable news. But in fact, inflation is a BRIC phenomenon, and is not merely restricted to China. This has tremendous implications that are not being reported by the mainstream press. It means that other larger industrial economies – specifically India’s, Brazil’s and Russia’s – are in the throes of potentially destabilizing price rises that can derail the West’s hesitant progress toward renewed economic stability.
     
    The
    Anglo-American power elite that has been responsible for setting up the world’s central banking economy is evidently and obviously worried about civil unrest. We have argued of late that the West’s economic downturn is in a sense manufactured, but that it has been far worse than the elite imagined. As a result, the elite has been preoccupied with “managing” the Greater Recession – attempting to ensure that it does not engender an over-throw of the system, but is merely bad enough to generate a pretext for increased global consolidation.
     
    Efforts at re-inflation taken by central banks around the world has been truly remarkable. Thus while prices have gone down and credit has contracted in the past two years, the larger trend of inflation gaining strength has not yet been adequately reported. What the mainstream press HAS reported on (see excerpt above) is commodity price inflation. This is perfectly congruent with our expectations; the arc of
    gold and silver price appreciation has to be put in SOME context after all.
     
    Given that printing presses worldwide have been steadily occupied for several years, we are perhaps moving past any likelihood of sustained price deflation or disinflation (certainly for non-Western, major economies). The predictable consequences of virtually endless money printing will be endlessly inflationary. Inflation is, of course, a monetary phenomenon. And printing money does not necessarily trigger it in the short term, but the long-term consequences are disastrous.
     
    Central banks around the world have been coordinating money printing in an attempt to re-stimulate the economy worldwide after the disaster of 2008. Printing yet more currency, and further distorting already moribund or over-stimulated economies just adds to the dislocation. The patient already lies bleeding on the rack. Monetary stimulation merely increases the pressure without providing real relief.
     
    In 2008, the
    fiat money economy that featured the dollar as the reserve currency basically died. We know it died because the biggest Western banking institutions were technically insolvent in 2008. It took a massive infusion of cash – one we then estimated would reach US$100 trillion – to restart Western economies. (We think we’re getting close.)
     
    But even this amount of money merely provided liquidity and could not actually undo the damage caused by decades of economic distortion. The result is that the West, and especially Europe and America, remain in the throes of a jobless recovery, while the BRIC economies – the engines of the world right now – are entering a dangerous phase where price inflation (the result of monetary inflation) is threatening to race out of control.
     
    When the Bell began reporting on Chinese inflation a year-and-a-half ago, it was not the fashion to write about it. China was an economic miracle and any inflation in that country was bound to be easily controlled – or that was the story, anyway. Today, China’s price inflation woes are a steady drumbeat. The world has discovered (as we recently reported) whole “ghost-cities,” built on speculation, empty and waiting for a population that may never come. You can see the story here:
    China: That Urban Empty Feeling.
     
    Likewise, there has not much talk of Indian inflation and certainly not Brazilian inflation in the Western mainstream press. But the BRIC countries that having been driving the world with their economic performance are all beginning to overheat. Russia is in especially bad shape because that economy is already battered and citizens are not in a forgiving mood. There is unrest throughout Russia and it recently hit home with a series of violent protests in Moscow. Reuters reports the following:
     
    The head of Russia’s top lender Sberbank, German Gref, said Monday he expects the 2011 inflation at 9% or higher. “We do not expect inflation to exceed 10% but it is highly likely that it will be above the 9% mark,” Gref told the Rossiya 24 TV channel. He said he does not see any chance for the 2011 inflation to get lower than this year’s figure of approximately 8.5%. The Statistics Service said in mid-December that since the year start, inflation hit the 8.1% mark. Gref said GDP will grow by over 4% in 2011.
     ….
    Price inflation is a problem in the West as well, but not an overwhelming one because money is not circulating with any ease. Once it does, however, conditions, in our view, may approach a kind of hyper-stagflation. We base this conclusion on the US stock exchange itself, which has seen a significant run-up now approaching 20 percent. Does anyone really believe that stimulating the stock market this way – by printing money – is a healthy way to go about generating an economic recovery? It may contribute to the bottom line of multinational corporations, but in the long run it is more likely to cause the aforementioned stagflation than a recovery.
     
    The big story in 2011 should be the looming inflationary pressures that threaten to derail the BRIC countries that have proven an engine of growth. If inflationary pressures continue to build, BRIC countries will raise rates and even implement price controls (which China is already considering) in order to counteract price rises.
     
    This worst-case scenario will likely depress the economic performance of BRIC countries and certainly in China, Russia and perhaps India could lead to significant civil unrest. Couple this with the austerity riots in Europe and the rising level of violence and dissatisfaction in America and it would seem there is the possibility of rising violence the world over. This is just what the Western elites fear and are working to avoid. But the only solution available to them is the blunt one of monetary policies – restimulation – and as we have just tried show above, it will likely cause more problems than it will cure.
     
    Conclusion: Far from moving swiftly or easily toward increased world governance, the elite may find it has its collective hands full just managing the current downturn. The truth-telling of the Internet, when coupled with Western economic unraveling, may continue to militate against world governance. Regimes in China and Russia are both fragile; many continue to predict the death of the euro and perhaps the splitting-up of the EU itself. Price inflation may be an aggravating factor in all these scenarios. While it has not been much remarked upon in 2010, it may be the defining story in 2011.

Global Food Prices in 2011 Face Perilous Rise!

  • 2011 will be the year of undeniable global famine. It has already started in the third world country this year. 2011 will see it spread to the industrialized world. The main culprit of this global famine is currency debasement worldwide. As the major currencies: USD, EUD, UKP, JPY … plunge into currency crisis, the minor currencies will follow them down the toilet tube via competitive devaluation. All currencies will go through debasement hell and this will de reflected in the rise in prices of hard assets, commodities, precious metals… Hyper-inflation will spread across the globe in various degrees.
     
  • The current global cooling, mini ice age is putting pressure on grain crops and food crops. Crops are failing and food stocks are near record lows. So, we will have a double whammy of currency devaluation and crop failures in 2011 !
     
    Global Food Prices in 2011 Face Perilous Rise
    Food prices globally are rising to dangerous levels. There is talk of a coming crisis, like the ones that produced riots around the world in 2008 and 1974. Many of the ingredients of a disaster are present, but governments can stop the problem before it causes too much damage.
      
    A warning sign is the price of traded staples like wheat, corn and rice. Prices shot up in 2010, soaring 26 percent from June to November and brushing the peaks of 2008, according to the Food Price Index kept by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. That hits poor countries that import much of their food, including the Philippines, Mexico, Nigeria and Pakistan.
     
    ‘Worst we have seen for winter wheat crop’!
    …“Now, it’s probably the worst we’ve seen in 30 years,” said Jim Cooksey of Cooksey Farms southeast of Roggen. Four months of little to no moisture is taking its toll on the crop, which blankets fields across northern Colorado. That means hopes for even an average harvest next summer are starting to dwindle.
      
    Floods Swamp Australia After Cyclone Hits
    Heavy rain across much of eastern Australia has left towns cut off by floods as the storms spread southwards and threatened agriculture and mining industries. … Much of the rain has fallen on key sugar growing areas of Queensland. Australia, a top sugar exporter along with Brazil and Thailand, this month slashed its current year sugar export forecast by 25% as flooding reduced sugar content of cane. The wheat harvest has also largely ground to a halt in affected areas.
     
    (Australia) Food tipped to rise by up to 50% as floods take toll
    FOOD prices could rise as much as 50 per cent as the Queensland farming industry is hit with flooding losses of at least $400 million. Affected farmers on Tuesday revealed both summer and winter crops had been destroyed, with many hectares of newly planted grains, vegetables and fruit submerged by flooding. The damage is likely to push up the cost of groceries including melons, tomatoes, mangoes, and bananas from Wednesday.
     
    Farming lobby group AgForce estimates 50 per cent of the state’s crops have been affected by heavy rain, causing a significantly reduced yield – with up to 20 per cent of crops lost.
     
    London wheat price hits record £200 a tonne
    London wheat hit £200 a tonne for the first time ever on Wednesday, playing catch up with Chicago and Paris peers, as UK markets reopened after the Christmas break.  ….  And wheat worldwide has gained support from weather factors, besides support from other food commodities, including fellow grain corn, facing the prospect of particularly tight inventories.
     
    While the rains which have been plaguing Australia’s wheat growers have eased off, “harvests are already more than six weeks late”, Agritel, the French consultancy, said. Meanwhile, concerns over dry weather in Argentina, which have centred on corn and soybeans, have begun to raise some fears of eroding wheat yields too. And in the US Plains, where wheat seedlings have suffered from a dearth of moisture, forecasters have lowered the chances of imminent rain.

Adrian Salbuchi: Forecast 2011, An End Run Towards World Government!

  • Here are the 12 triggers Adrian Salbuchi has identified. He is pretty much spot on IMO. His 11th trigger: Staged ‘Religious Event’ is particularly interesting. The Illuminists do intend to stage a fake 2nd Coming or false rapture event for the Christian world. They are also planning a fake coming of the Mahdi – for the Muslim world and the fake coming of the Maitreya for the Buddhist world. (I will post more on the use of hologram technology by the military next year ie to create false apearances of Christ, Madhi, Maitreya..)
      
    Adrian Salbuchi reviews the 12 Triggers being used by the Global Power Elite to drive the worldwide transition from “Globalization” to World Government during 2010 and forecast into 2011. Also give details on his new eBook in English, “The Coming World Government: Tragedy & Hope?”.
     
    12 Triggers
    1. Financial Meltdown (Coming One World Currency backed by Gold)
    2. Economic Crisis
    3. Social Upheaval
    4. Pandemics
    5. Global Warming
    6. False Flag Attack
    7. War in the Middle East
    8. More ‘Eco-Accidents’
    9. Political Assassination
    10. Attack on ‘Rogue State’
    11. Staged ‘Religious Event’
    12.  Staged ‘Alien Contact’

Matthew 24:23-26 (New King James Version)
23 “Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it. 24 For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. 25 See, I have told you beforehand. 26 “Therefore if they say to you, ‘Look, He is in the desert!’ do not go out; or ‘Look, He is in the inner rooms!’ do not believe it.
