Apparently there are those out there who, like me, are fascinated with the allegedly fake bearer bonds showing up out there. Here is a take, Similar to my own speculations in some respects, that I thought was worth noting:
Now, notwithstanding the similarities of this analysis and my own - namely, that we are looking at the basis of a hidden or occult economy - I am drawn to one particular detail that appears in this article, that might indicate yet a deeper twist to things, consider these paragraphs, and in particular, the first one:
"For instance, in 2003,* two men – a Canadian and a Korean living in Japan – tried to use $25 million worth of US Treasury bonds in order to secure a line of credit from the Imperial Bank of Commerce.
"The bonds presented by the men were easily spotted as fake and the men, along with Graham Halksworth – a 69-year-old British man and his associate, Michael Slamaj, a former Yugoslav spy — were arrested and charged.
"The story behind the acquirement of the bonds provided by Halksworth and Slamaj directly coincided with the chronology of events as recorded in the files of the Foreign Office.
"Yet, although the bonds/notes in the Halksworth case were demonstrably false, they did reveal some rather startling information – that fake bonds were often included amongst large quantities of real bonds so as to preclude the holder from ever being able to cash them.
"Indeed, when questioned by the police as to his role in the fake bond scandal, Halksworth responded by telling police that 'Deliberate mistakes were often made in such bonds as a security device; ask the CIA.'When the police pointed out that the mistakes were so obvious it looked like a child had made them, Halksworth responded, 'Exactly.'
"Halksworth might be in some position to speak on the matter considering his background. He was a forensic specialist and a member of the Forensic Science Society who helped develop a fingerprinting system for Scotland Yard in 1967.
"He also worked for a company that provided forensic equipment for many foreign governments as well as authenticated historical documents for the Chinese and German governments. He helped issue bonds from both commercial banks and the Bank of England.
"He also authenticated and approved U.S. Federal Reserve bonds for churches, Saudi princes, and Native American tribes. With a career history such as this, Halksworth is likely to know whereof he speaks."
So, ye olde plotte thickens, for now we have the involvement of someone with expertise precisely in such bonds and their authentication, alleging that mistakes were deliberately made as "security devices" and that the CIA was involved in this, clearly implying a hidden economy connection.
But I hope you noticed the first paragraph, that this $25,000,000 (pocket change, really, when considering the amounts involved in recent seizures), involved the Imperial Bank of Commerce. Readers of my book Babylon's Banksters will recall that in the preface of that book, I outlined the mathematical formula that allowed banks and securites brokerages to bundle together derivatives called credit default swaps, a formula that was devised by Chinese mathematician Dr. David Li, who at the time he devised it, was indeed employed by the Imperial Bank of Commerce in Canada. Coincidentally, at the time, the wealthy Li clan of Hong Kong were major shareholders in this bank. Dr. Li subsequently departed the bank prior to the meltdown, and returned to China, where he assumed a post in an agency responsible for risk assessment and management.
So, we now have another Chinese connection, and the same bank, and a British subject caught in the forgery scandal, who implies that there is an underlying reality behind the allegedly fake bonds. In short, more dots have been just barely connected, and the plot has thickened considerably.
See you on the flip side.
