Babylon's Bankers

FIRST VENEZUELA, THEN GERMANY, THEN ECUADOR, NOW BRAZIL…

Sometimes you just have to sit back and laugh at the banksters.  As I sit here today blogging for the next two weeks, enjoying a (GMO) turkey sandwich on fresh (GMO) bread made with wholesome (GMO) grains, slathered with mayonnaise made from (GMO) eggs from (GMO) chickens and topped with cheese from (GMO) cows' milk, I have to laugh.

Most regular readers here will know I've been covering the story of Germany wanting to audit its gold and, in some case, to repatriate all or a substantial portion of it. The move, however, began with Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. No surprise there, or so we're told, since Mr. Chavez has been no friend of the USA or the West, and outrageously suggested that the Haiti and Chile earthquakes were artificially produced, and that the Western financial elites were involved. And, oh, by the way, we want our gold back.Well, according to the presstitutes in the western media, we could all laugh and hold our belly at Mr Chavez because he's obviously nuts, and a socialist, and not pro-US. Or so we're told.

Then came Germany, of course, which, after the USA, reputedly holds the world's second largest gold reserves. Now, in Germany's case, the calls began with the Germans themselves, and members of the German parliament and were, as to be expected, consistently rebuffed by the German central bank, the Bundesbank. As the Bundesbank's answers became increasingly obscure if not downright arrogant, the demands for audits and repatriation only grew in Germany.

Then came Ecuador, which, in the midst of its rather plucky refusal to turn international fugitive Julian Assange over to British authorities, decided that it too wanted its gold repatriated.

All this could be dismissed of course: Chavez was, well, Chavez, and Germany was just being....well, "German" again and not willing to bow before the masters of the universe in London and Wall Street. And Ecuador was, well, just insignificant.

But now comes another country, and one not easily ignored:

Brazil Boosts Gold Reserves to the Highest in More Than 11 Years

Admittedly, Brazil isn't telling the Bank of England or the New York Federal Reserve that it wants its gold audited, assayed, and repatriated. If it was doing that along with similar calls in Germany it would be sending shockwaves... But the move is deeply significant nonetheless, not only for the growing cooperation between Brazil, China, Russia, and India (it is after all, one of the Brics nations), but for the fact that it heralds yet another major nation and economy, firmly planted within western culture, is displaying a huge vote of no confidence in the financial system.T his signal, in other words, is in my opinion not just a financial one, but a geopolitical one; yet another major nation is showing increasing signs of a lack of confidence in the financial oligarchs of London and New York.

See you on the flip side.

  1. Good observation Dr. Farrell that it is interesting, and curious at the same time, how all this repatriated ‘gold-bug’ fever got started by the slug, Hugo Chavez, who is a minion to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who is a minion to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei who is a minion to Supreme Leader…..

  2. There is a new scandal in Germany. A man (Gustl Mollath) is since 7 years locked up in psychatric institution. He reported about his wifes bank (HypoVereinsbank) funneling black money on foreign accounts. Now, suddenly the big newspapers report about it. Why now? Maybe this is another attack on the shadow banking system.

    This might or might not be off topic but is worthy of expert analysis I believe:

    http://www.presstv.com/detail/2012/11/24/274332/aipac-decapitators-inside-us-govt/

    the President released a memo stating we have enemies in our midst:

    “…to deter, detect and mitigate actions by employees who may present a threat to national security…These threats include…violent acts against the Government and the Nation…”

    As this hasn’t made the main stream news, I would have to bet we are talking about dual citizens. If we were talking about Russians, El Qaida or China then it would be all over the news in my estimation.

    I guess Obamma uncovered the plot to remove him from office and Michelle Obamma has ordered him to be pro-active with the conspiracy.

    My question is: if Obamma is not the neo-cons Manchurian Candidate, then who’s Manchurian Candidate is he? The third tier conspirators?

    I’ll throw this one out there and I’m not saying I believe it—

    but if you were mass producing alchemical gold and wanted to dump it on the market and get 10 billion dollar fund managers to line up and buy it in great haste, I could think of no better way then getting some credible actors (Germany, Brazil,etc) to make a stink about wanting there gold back and then leak rumors that there is no gold in the vault. This would have the “smart money” rubes lining in up in droves to get a few pieces of the now scarce metal.

    Haven’t these banksters been running bait and switch con jobs with gold and silver since the beginning of time? This kind of swindle is old hat to them and I wouldn’t be surprised if they got playbooks in their vaults with the details of these schemes– when they were used, what happened, did they make a fortune, did they get chased out of town, etc.

    Maybe they know the Chinese are only one step behind them in alchemical gold production so they got to flood the world now. Or maybe, they discovered the Japanese were making gold right before Fukishima. Maybe the time had come to get the jump on this inevitable alchemical breakthrough.

      If the banksters have been cornered, then we may all be in trouble because there is nothing more dangerous than a cornered animal and like any ferocious animal we know anything goes with this crowd– unleashed race wars, stuxnet virus, biological plagues, HAARP induced earthquakes and Sun flares, nuclear war or all of the above and then retreat to their bunkers and wait for the dust to clear so they can one day resurface and start their evil schemes over again.

      Lets hope the perennial bankster whipping boys, Germany and Russia, are two or three chess moves ahead of the banksters this time and got a trick up their own sleeve.

      1. Yes…the banksters have been cornered ever since September 11 or earlier …with heavy defections and a fair amount of “traitors” within their ranks seeking refuge as we speak.

        yes! I agree there could be some desperate moves… as you say…but the relatively slow pace of the ongoing collapse is being gently managed precisely to avoid such moves.

        As we enter a next phase of the collapse: “High Level Corporate” bankruptcies and thereafter global banks themselves… the use of Gold as currency comes handy for appropiating large amounts of corporate assets at pennies on the dollar; and the introduction of a whole new (non-dollar/euro based) monetary/financial system where banks will play little or no role.

        Thus, unless a sudden “liberating” move takes place… we will be released from making mortgage payments to bankers but rather “royalty” payments to those now in possesion of industrial assets/corporations; on account of gadgets running on new “groundbreaking technology” that will replace the current oil-dependent model.

          Miguel,

          Deeply perceptive. I wonder if one of the bankster’s desperate moves is to hang the Israelis out to dry in order to distract attention from their crimes:

          http://www.veteranstoday.com/2012/11/27/brzezinski-us-must-stop-following-israel-like-a-stupid-mule/

          or is this part of a long range plan to erect a global police state and who best to ensnare first but zionists (Goldstein?) and demonstrate to the rest of the masses that a total global surveillance grid is necessary when dealing with a criminal as nefarious and wily as the zionist jew?

          Or, are we seeing anti-bankster forces pitting the London banksters against Israel with the hopes that they will cannibalize each other?

          1. Frankie,

            I would not know how to interpret what is going on in the ME since the Arab Spring uprisings.

            It seems to me that the long-time “entente” between the CFE banksters and the “Prince Bernhardt industrialists” has come to an end as the industrialists seem to have pulled out or have no more long-time interest in sharing the spoils, i.e. oil… since the consolidation of other agendas seem more important.

            I have always regarded Gaddafi, Saddam Hussein, Mubarak and others as “gatekeepers” of an entente between two groups (banksters/industrialists); with Israel as a convenient wild card for either side to stir things up whenever necessary.

            Some within the banksters/CFE/State Department and a tiny corner of the Pentagon may think they have finally gotten the upperhand, but I feel that removing the longtime ME gatekeepers who have been there since the 50’s is only a Phyric victory

            As for the London Banksters…well! I believe the first dissenting voices within the banksters against the deployment of global derivative/credit risk took place in London in the late 90’s. The Economist back then picked up on a lot of this. The banksters gone berzerck have had the upper hand for a while… but again, those at the helm knew precisely what they were doing and co-opted others to follow.

            The anti-banksters forces you have identified could be “old-timers” proven right or more scheeming by the “Bernhardt industrialists”.

          3. Frankie, Regarding Brezinsky et al. … I suppose there is a time before the ship sinks, when small and large rats start .

            DSK (former IMF chief who became a Gold bug all of a sudden) and Murdoch himself were proven too precocious.

            Thus, there could be a lot of noise that is hard to decipher…as allegiances change… and noone knows anymore who belongs where.

      I lean more to the theory that the alien mining executives have returned and have taken delivery of the Earthmen’s gold.

      Either that, or it has has been snorted in powder form by certain humans trying desperately to be immortal and godlike.

      1. Frankie Calcutta

        but if gold can be manufactured alchemically, there would be no need to travel across the galaxy to mine it. A conundrum.

        1. But Frankie, how come the mining executives want the teocuitlatl? Maybe the real message of 2012 that we are meant to learn is that the way we place value on human life and labor is really a load of crap?

          1. Frankie Calcutta

            Tor,

            one of the theories is that white powder gold is the nectar of immortality. Its like crack cocaine to them. Maybe the banksters too and now there is none left. How about this crackpot theory: WWII was really a bankster operation to get the most scientifically advanced among us, the Germans, to go into high gear and discover how to mass produce alchemical gold?

            You won’t get any argument from me “that the way we place value on human life and labor is really a load of crap?”

          2. Frankie

            “teocuitlatl” is an Aztec word that refers to gold, and it means, “excrement of the gods.”

            Interesting to me is the legend that adept, Raymond Lully was commissioned by King Edward I, to transmute 50,000 lbs of base metals into gold. Also, the many laws in Europe established in the middle ages that forbid gold making. Not really sure, but suspect gold making has been known about for a long time.

  5. And now for the really big question…..
    are you ready(?)

    How much snow are you really getting
    over there?
