One of  the more interesting stories making the rounds in the past few years, as more and more dots are connected between the Japanese plunder of Asia during World War Two and the post-war system of hidden finance, is that Indonesian President Sukharno, and President John F. Kennedy, reached secretive agreements to lease Indonesian gold as part of what some consider to be a long-range Kennedy plan to restructure American currency and finance. Moreover, this story has more recently become part of a scenario connected to the Bearer Bonds scandals, in which Sukharno's and Kennedy's abortive attempt to challenge the Anglo-American financial oligarchy has been taken up by "good" Asian secret societies bent on avenging the plunder of Asia and the complicity of Anglo-American banks in the Axis rape of Europe and Asia.

As a part of this ongoing story, Sukharno supposedly made his gold transfers via the Union Bank of Switzerland, or UBS, which bank has consistently denied for 50 plus years that such an agreement was never made and that it was never a party to them. Now, however, it seems that the documents that have been circulating in connection with this story might be true:

UBS goes down… from Neil Keenan

Now, the interesting thing here is that these documents were (to my knowledge) first brought to the public's attention by Sterling and Peggy Seagrave, in their critically important book, Gold Warriors, and in a series of CDs of documentation for their book that they make available on their website. At that time, as I recall, the authenticity was in dispute, but now, according to the article linked above, that issue appears to be resolving, and to be resolving against UBS.

Now let's suppose, for the sake of argument, that this Sukharno-Kennedy story is true. What then, would be the implications? For one thing, it would be apparent that President Kennedy's actions would have to be seen to be more of a piece than perhaps previously seen: his dismissal of Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Lyman Lemnitzer, and his exile to Europe as NATO cheif, was taking direct aim at one significant aspect of the post-war national security apparatus, namely, its chief exponent of covert operations. Lemnitzer was, of course, intimately involved in the Operation Northwoods idea to stage an attack on Americans, and blame it on Castro, to facilitate a fullscale invasion of Cuba. For another, it would also be apparent that by restructuring the chain of command of covert operations, by removing them from CIA influence and placing them directly under the Pentagon, Kennedy was perhaps trying to rein in what had effectively become a quasi-independent entity. By placing it covert ops directly under the Joint Chiefs, he was also placing them directly under presidential control. And finally, by threatening to smash the CIA "into a thousand pieces" and, in June of 1963, by issuing orders for the direct minting of $4 billion in United States notes, by-passing the Federal Reserve (and hence, interest on that $4 billion), Kennedy was taking aim at something very significant: not just "the money power," but more importantly, a hidden system of finance, most likely directed and run by the CIA,through and with the complicity of some in the Federal Reserve system.

His actions threatened to expose a hidden system of finance, in other words, and with that, to expose a post-war tapestry of power, interlocking bureaucracies (of several different national intelligence structures in NATO), and covert operations that could rightly be viewed as a truly interenational structure, a breakaway civilization, whose ability to conduct its operations and to achieve its goals was dependent on that system.

Kennedy's attempts to initiate a new era of co-existence with the Soviet Union, up to an including possible space cooperation and even, according to some, a joint Moon program, threatened the publicly-given raison d'etre of that international structure, a structure sold to each of the component nations' populations as a necessity for the coalition needed to contain and ultimately defeat Communism.

We are thus looking at a kind of international military-industrial-intelligence-finance capital complex, whose operational core - the USA - is the modern Venice to a vast oceanic stato di mare.

They do greatly err, therefore, who say that there is no "backing" to the currency created by that system, nor to the US dollar's reserve status, for the backing is the structure of power itself... and that should give everyone pause.

See you on the flip side.
