I haven't commented much on the Edward Snowden/NSA theater, because basically I believe it to be just that: theater. But when I have commented I have pointed out that the idea of someone simply walking in and downloading a bunch of classified documents from the NSA is a plot that only Hollywood could come up with; it's not real life. If Snowden was able to get anything of real relevance from the NSA  - and let's face it, what we've seen thus far hasn't been all that "revealing" - then someone wanted him to have it and play the role of leaker and whistleblower. In short, there are others behind the Snowden affair, and a variety of hypotheses have already been advanced in various circles, from the CIA and inter-agency rivalry, to the Vatican, to other foreign intelligence services, and so on.

When I have bothered to speak about the matter, I have offered the idea that the real story isn't the fact that the US government spies on everyone, including itself. That's old news since "Echelon" first became a big item to talk about during the Clinton Administration. The real story, I believe, lies in two areas. Such a vast spying and computational capability would represent the ultimate insider trading mechanism, an idea that former Assistant Secretary of HUD, Catherine Austin Fitts, my co-author Scott deHart and I bandied about during conversation a few weekends ago. Such a capability would also represent the ultimate blackmailing capability, since virtually every public official and government bureaucrat could be brought to heal. If there is an explanation for the non-responsiveness of any of the public sector any more, this may be it.

Well, in confirmation of the first thesis - an insider trading mechanism in service of black budget concerns - I recently received an email from Ms. Fitts suggesting that at least something looks and smells fishier than a mackerel on a moonlit beach. Consider the fact that Booze Allen and AIG with their connections to the black world have been moving up faster than the S&P:

Booze Allen Hamilton and AIG

And there's Lockheed's performance over the past three months vs. Booze Allen, AIG, and the S&P 500:

Lockheed, Booze Allen, and AIG

Of course, this is merely circumstantial. It proves nothing. But it at least does raise the questions of whether or not Mr. Snowden or his handlers have stocks. But here's what it looks like when you throw in Raytheon (another big defense contractor), and note Booze Allen outperforms them all:

Lockheed, Booze Allen, AIG, Raytheon and ther S&P 500

Notably, the Snowden affair has had little long term effect on the performance of these key defense contractors. Not surprising, but it does raise the issue  of electronically manipulated markets in a major way. (And apparently I'm not the only one thinking manipulation: NSA: Genius Spying Eye, or Bumbling Idiot?)

Admittedly, it isn't much, but when added to the much wider context of the postwar secret deals between the US intelligence agencies and postwar Fascists, and the decision to recover Japanese operation Golden Lily plunder and keep it entirely secret as a covert political action and black budget slush fund, the entry of intelligence agencies into banking and market manipulation was, given their vast electronic eavesdropping capabilities, inevitable.

See you on the flip side.

      interesting article you linked- but how does the elitist Hong Kong banking Li family fit into all of this?- Lis were not mentioned in article (but were heavily mentioned in “Babylon’s Banksters”)- don’t they exist anymore?- gone with the wind?- hardly- there’s something else going on here-

      stay well- regards-


      • henry on July 23, 2013 at 7:54 pm

        As for the Li family missing in the article, one probably never even realized they may have played a role without reading “Babylon’s Banksters”, I certainly did not. Hence, your questions should be directed at the writer of that article.

        Since you once cited Gary McKinnon’s case in arguing “the Chinese were hacking the U.S. too”, i think you’ll remember in the concluding thoughts, “Covert Wars and Breakaway Civilization” mentioned him as well but focused on the alleged “secret space fleet”, as it’s also my focus if you still remember our past conversations.
        I think the entire breakaway civilization’s secret financial system is falling apart now because the space fleet is no longer here to guard the fraudulent system, the way the petrol dollar is largely supported by military might, but that it was in question when the Iranians hacked RQ-170, CIA’s stealth drone in late 2011.
        How the electronic spying system exposed by “Snowden” was used to blackmail targets like Strauss Kahn, who once pointed out the growing importance of emerging economies:
        “After the reform, the largest emerging economies—Brazil, China, India, and Russia—will be among our top ten shareholders. There will also be some reshuffling of representation at our Executive Board, to better reflect today’s global economic realities. This is a momentous change—and would not have been possible without the support of our European members.”
        I don’t think its coincidental that both Edward Snowden and Strauss Kahn are in Russia’s arms now.Maybe we should keep a watchful eye on the Russian G20 summit. Already, the fact Strauss-Kahn just joined a Russia state oil bank says alot about what’s to expect.

        Snowden and the return of Marduk?
        this is a different angle, interesting and entertaining to say the least.

        • LSM on July 24, 2013 at 9:07 am

          ohh, baby, if Marduk has returned and if he’s darker-skinned I think he probably landed in the US Whitehouse in 2008, not Africa- nothing benevolent about his return-

          yes, article is definitely a different angle (I read it once published- I do follow KC but with distance), interesting (?) and about as thigh-slappingly entertaining as the US Whitehouse

    If the NSA has all the “goods” on everybody, then what happens after that?
    There is a stench emanating out of the NSA, someone at the top is REALLY calling the shots and maybe HE is taking his orders from someone “outside” the NSA.

    You just cant have an organization the size of the NSA without some sort of corruption going on, and maybe the people in government could be thinking, or remembering that J. Edger Hoover had files on everybody, including the politicans.

    Snowden is small change, unless he has the ultimate “leak” that would bring the “breakaway civilization” out in the open, but I doubt that.

    That Edward Snowden might be a front for the real Deep Throats has been the truth from the beginning. The merchants of death and financial scammers having been making a killing in more ways than one. With blackmail and extortion running riff in London and Washington DC nobody money, secrets, lives are safe. Welcome to the New World Disorder.

  4. Robert Barricklow on July 23, 2013 at 8:39 am

    There’s a new article out where drones can target cell phones turned off(yes batteries not included).
    I had always thoght the ubiquitious meme of take the batteries out & your safe hollywood meme was sheer theatre.
    I’ve been wanting to write this for sometime. The article is currently at the top of blacklisted news.

    • Robert Barricklow on July 23, 2013 at 8:43 am

      While I’am at the next article in the que mentions a black swan from China.
      I’am sick of that black swan!
      Where the hell has the white crow been?

      • henry on July 23, 2013 at 5:02 pm

        First production hydrogen fuel cell cars hit the market, from Hyundai

        Maybe the Asiana crash was to remind the South Koreans to stay away from “black swan”, yet the Koreans just forged a 20 years economic partnership with a neighboring country that’s gonna “implode”? Or is the world about to get rid of the oil scam within this decade?

        • Robert Barricklow on July 24, 2013 at 10:02 am

          Oil is abiotic.
          They knew about zero-point energy long ago.
          They knew about Telsa and that technology.
          But they wanted monopoly/control over economics; from the money itself, to the energy, to the food, to the health. A Full Spectrum dominance from the cosmos to the inner workings of the mind – total control.

          So, ergo,
          …when they are move into new energy source(or any “new” direction, for that matter) it is with monopoly/control, at “their” beckon call…

            I’m trying to understand the possible relationship between human consciousness and the environment, not just the natural environment but the emotional/spiritual environment as well which contribute to our understanding of the physical “reality”.

            and in a reverse fashion, i would also wonder, once the natural environment is free of deliberate damaging, coupled with other changes that could facilitate the change of emotional/spiritual environment, what will such changes have on human consciousness?

            Awareness of “they” is necessary in the sense it would ultimately serve to break the shackles “they” put on the human consciousness. If such awareness degenerates into pure negativity and fear, then either that soul has been “converted” to facilitate the agenda of dehumanizing nature or that person actually “serves” the agenda, whether consciously or unconsciously.

            In that sense, i’m not worried about the past, the present or the future, merely try to see how these elements play into each other,and how human consciousness plays as the inseparable part.

          • Robert Barricklow on July 25, 2013 at 8:49 am

            Unfortunately, henry, there is much in what you say, and indeed, in what’s left unsaid.
            It really saddens me, that in this unwinding, mankind is an instrument, not only of his own distruction, but of nature’s living beingsas well.
            I just finished watching a show on tigers. Thery are going into the sunset as well.
            We are intimately linked, in so many ways with the environment.

            there is absolutely no substitute.
            Glad to see to grasp it’s true “nature/consciousness”…

    • jedi on July 23, 2013 at 8:56 am

      Wireless energy…oh yeah some obsure little quack by the name of Tesla thought of that.

  5. Robert Barricklow on July 23, 2013 at 8:18 am

    This hasa been gamed since?
    You really don’t want to know.

    But if we take it from WWII one can see manipulation all across the board. Their already existed the private intelligence apparatus put in place by Rockefeller & others. Emulating the Rothschild one(some believe evolved into the mossad). And I’am sure we’d find Venice fingerprints, & Babylon, & Summerian, & ?

    …well, you really don’t want to know.

    • jedi on July 23, 2013 at 11:10 am

      fyi, just in ….the foremost expert on egypts pyramids suspect the ejuptions were aware of pie.

      thus energy = 2 hamburgers, and with a lightbulb on, square it.

    The stock of Dell Computer isn’t going up, and Snowden worked there too.

    As for Booz-Allen-Hamilton not allowing easy access/downloading for approved employees, yeah I’d bet they were that dumb. (After all Bradley Manning could easily find/copy video of war crimes while in the army–that the army was that dumb is more of a surprise than this NSA contractor). But as you say the actual secrets aren’t there at Booz-Allen.

    • jedi on July 23, 2013 at 6:10 am

      war crime is a oxy moron. Lying to start it (false flags), killing, stealing……continually doing evil.
