COUNTERFEIT EUROS? SAY IT ISN’T SO!

This one is entertaining, not only for what it says, but also for its almost comical brevity. Sadly, if it weren't for the fact that the whole Euro experiment is proving to be one colossal Rottenchild nightmare, it would be laughable. We'll get to that. But first, the article:

Belgium probes into counterfeit euros originating in China

Yup, that's it, three short one sentence paragraphs:

"Belgian authorities have launched an investigation after the seizure of tons of fake euro coins which came from China.

"Customs at Brussels airport have been confiscating the counterfeit coins over the past few months.

"Germany’s Bundesbank mistakenly accepted fake money from China worth six million euros in 2011."

Now the question really is, why would China be counterfeiting Euros? and especially coins? And especially in such small amounts?

Assuming that it really is China and not some gang "doing its own thing", I suspect that once again, the answer is geopolitical. A broken-up European union, from the standpoint of China and its allies, would be much easier to "manage" than would be the EU (after all, the Europeans can't even manage the EU). The euro, already under mounting pressure, might conceivably crack if confidence can be further undermined. Along with the other BRICSA nations China has been busy building new understandings along with challenging American power and interests. The recent trips of Benjamin Nuttyahoo to Beijing and Moscow as Russia and China seek to inject their influence and views into the region are another consideration.

We can speculate all we wish but the bottom line is that there is an assault on Western finance, and the euro, along with the dollar, is at the heart of that system.  Why coins? the answer, it would seem, is easy: coins are much easier to counterfeit than currency. The smaller amounts are annoying, probably much more so than currency and much more of a hassle to track down and take out of circulation. Changing coin designs or content is likely too expensive and  probably more readily reproducible anyway. Doing away with coins altogether isn't feasible.

It's a clever choice, really, and if done on a large enough scale... can you say welcome back, DMark?

See you on the flip side.

  1. for years the most commonly conterfeited bill has been the 50 Euro bill as hear-say would have it- until approx. a yr. ago practically every establishment (at least in my area) before accepting the “Fünfziger” put it under the light first- wonder why the subsequent lack of interest- problem solved?- I bet not- could it be the success of counterfeiting most Euro bills has taken on the success of WWII’s “Operation Bernhard”?- I wouldn’t rule it out-

    or are the conterfeited coins a distraction from concentrating on counterfeited bills (most probably not) OR are the “Falschgeld” coins yet another step proving “the Euro doesn’t work; regardless of what measures we take bills AND coins can be falsified; we now need a cashless society” (as if chipped credit cards can’t be more easily falsified)- or is the end game to away with money altogether for the common man and implement a new system that is even more nefarious than tangible currency (as if bills/coins ever made money an actual tangible reality- we all know money is an illusion that we deem to be reality)-

    anyway, where is the proof that counterfeited Euros are being manufactured outside the EU?- we’re always being told to look in the wrong direction- I bet they’re being printed/minted right in the EU’s underbelly-

    I’m still not convinced the Euro was implemented to be a success- I continue to think it was implemented to be a failure to usher in a more nefarious agenda-

    obviously completely wild speculation on my part-

    BUT, strangely enough, in the last few weeks suddenly more former Groschen (Deutsche Mark coins) have suddenly appeared in my loose Euro coin change (I never initially scrutinize my small change when I get it back from stores- me bad- it’s only when I then subsequently try to pay with former Groschen that the Groschen are brought to my attention)-

    some former Groschen coins are approx. the same size and color of some smaller denominated Euro coins-

    stay well Dr. Farrell and all- regards-

    and thanks for reading-

    1. and if I may add an addendum: we’re constantly being told to look at huge land massed countries like China as being the “shakers” in world society where we continue to ignore the weeds in our back yard gardens: the LITTLE supremely rich countries; I’ve blogged enough already about the machinations behind Switzerland/Liechtenstein- now BELGIUM investigates (yawn) fake Euros made by China-

      in case anyone is not yet aware Brussells, Belgium is the seat of the EU-

      this is on the same par as the Warren Commision investigating the Kennedy assassination

  2. This story is so strange, coins, it just doesn’t add up. You can make up all the conspiracy theories you like, but it’s still strange.

    Why does China get the ink, where’s the proof, you’d think this story would make front page all over the world, but I say again, where’s the proof.

    Message sending, well depends who’s doing the coins, is there another candidate we have not figured on?

    Just because these coins weren’t stamp out in Europe don’t make them counterfeits. For all we know they have a higher precious metal content than the real mc’ coy think about that.

    It seems to small time to be worth the effort of the Chinese government and considering the paltry amount of coins they are counterfeiting, why would they risk the ramifications of being caught? Moreover, a few million euro coins does little damage to the currency. The Europeans are a big trading partner and counterfeiting their currency certainly wouldn’t look good, unless parties in Europe wanted to see the EU go down the tubes as well. But assigning China to make fake coins does not seem the way to go about it. It certainly could be the work of Chinese organized crime and I suppose all organized crime can eventually lead to the government in any country, but my guess is China is being set up as a patsy. I would speculate the Euro could be counterfeited by London/NY/Tokyo central banksters who resent the stubborn German bankers for not printing Euros at the rate the banksters are printing dollars, pounds, and yen. This really upsets the apple cart if one important faction does not go along with the attempts to rescue the finance scheme with global quantitative easing.

    So, I would guess someone is telling the world to look over there at the Chinese, in order to get the snoops off the trail of the real counterfeiters– the banksters. I would then have to wonder if some of these 78 Moscow billionaires had their pockets stuffed with fake euros? Not only would it be a good way to get the counterfeits into the European economy, but with all that cash, the billionaires could buy a lot of politicians in Russia and make lots of trouble for Putin, if that is what the anglosphere banksters so desired.

      Now here is some real Chinese skullduggery:

      http://rt.com/usa/us-chinese-report-defense-888/

      “The designs for more than two dozen major weapons systems used by the United States military have fallen into the hands of the Chinese, US Department of Defense officials say.”

      Or were these blueprints just a gift to China from Natanyahu?

      I think we are getting very close to the day when we might start seeing dual citizens in DC getting “assisted suicides.”

    2. Interesting theory from Frankie that the counterfeits may originate from the “quantitative easing” gang… a curious development in view of the recent observation that the new 5-euro banknote, produced to contrast counterfeiting, has tiny swastikas in the design! In any case, the 2-euro coin is the highest denomination coin in common circulation in Europe (currently worth over US$2.50 – the UK has its 2-pound coin but you don’t see around it so often, perhaps because it is so heavy).

    3. “So, I would guess someone is telling the world to look over there at the Chinese, in order to get the snoops off the trail of the real counterfeiters”-

      exactly-

      read my previous postings- my gut feelings have never led me wrong- I live in the Euro zone and my postings are based on my own real life’s experiences in combination with sometimes valid/sometimes orthographic bogus “explanations” subsequently given to me (mostly bogus) about explaining “my life” but has excluded why my buying power has been literally halved since the implementation of the Euro-

      as if generalized written reports can explain away the reality in my own life-

      I’ve stated it before and will continuously state it again: the control system on this planet is controlled not from/by big countries but easily manipulated/through tinier countries: Switzerland and its principality Liechtenstein, Vatican, Netherlands (to where did the Venitian financial system land after being thrown out), now throw in Belgium (sorry, I forgot Luxembourg- no news about Luxembourg whatsoever which means it’s probably a MAJOR player), then maybe throw in San Marino, Monaco and last but not least: Andorra (as if anyone is even aware of where San Marino or Andorra are geographically located- I assume most are aware that Monaco is located on the Cote D’Azur in S. France (or not)- but now Andorra- start with the Pyrennees- as if that’d be a start for most-

      I’m anything but “a know-it-all”- anything BUT!- but I do have at least a smidgen of knowledge (and I lived in Switzerland for 2 yrs.)- and a gut feeling about things that has never led me wrong-

      take care- regards-

        1. yeah, you’re most probably right BetelgeuseT-1 (how did you ever invent this name?- please inform if you care to)- but even though Israel is the largest reciprient of US foreign aid (and Egypt is no. 2 if my read sources are correct) I just think Israel/Zionism/”bad Jews” (give us a break) is a collective cover story to divert attention from the underbelly of the European Union (whoever may be controlling it) through the tinier, just-ever-so-quaint countries like Switzerland/Liechtenstein, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Belgium, etc.- people blindly think these tiny land-massed countries couldn’t possibly have any power but they haven’t considered the massive banking/political systems behind them that originally drew their small political/geographical borders to begin with- sort of ties in with the concept “less is more”-

          as for Luxembourg (LUX accoring to airlines): ca. 30 yrs. ago LUX was an ideal tax haven for Germans until the LUX ‘financial police’ began notating all German-registered car plates parked in LUX and subsequently passed the info to the German tax authorities, assuming the owners of the cars (tourists subsequently excluded after investigations) were “banking” in LUX and using it as a tax haven which many were until the German tax authorities did a major crack-down on German “savers” in LUX- that was in the late 80’s- but since then no news whatsoever about LUX’s banking system- why?-

          all of this info hit the German rags in Saarbrücken (near LUX border) at the time I was living there ’87-’89-

          so why would LUX be complicit with German tax authorities scaring away the common man’s investments (money, however little, is money regardless of source)?- I don’t have the answer- but I tend to think LUX is much more connected to Germany than most believe- even though the official language of LUX is French many Luxembourgers speak a German dialect called “Letscheburgisch”- there’s even a TV station in LUX that broadcasts exclusively in Letscheburgisch-

            Hey Larry,
            Thank you for your insights here, very valuable.
            I think another member suggested to you to direct some of your observations and speculations in a vidchat directly to Dr Farrell. I suggest the same. Would be very interesting to listen to his response and opinion on this matter. I tend to agree with you, these tiny countries (city states really) weren’t created just for the hell of it.
            Especially The Netherlands is interesting to me since I lived there for the first 25 years of my life. It’s no secret (at least not for the well-informed) that the Dutch royal family is up to their necks into the financial shenanigans that rule this planet. Not that we ever got taught anything at school about the finances of the royal family or the history of it!
            We all know that the Dutch royals are annual attendees of the Bilderberg meetings. Heck, Mr Bernhardt himself was one of the founders!
            As for my username on this site. It’s just my fascination with the Orion constellation (because it was for the ancients).
            During the summer months (southern hemisphere), all I have to do is look out the window in the evening facing west and there it is, right there.
            Betelgeuse to me is the most interesting because of its clear orange glow and that it may go super nova one day, hence the T-1.
            The “1” could be one second, one year, one millennia, one googolplex years, who knows.
            Would be great to see it go in our lifetime…quite a spectacle…

            Regards, stay well.
