Babylon's Bankers


Just when you thought that all that fuss and muss about Germany repatriating its gold was over and done with when the Bundesbank, Germany's central bank, announced that it was satisfied that everything was shipshape at the N.Y. Fed, think again. Mr. V.T., a regular reader and contributor of articles here, found this post, from yesterday, at Investment Watch:

GERMAN GOLD RESERVES – Germany Repatriates Its Gold Reserves from U.S.

There are a number of new things here which, if true, are extremely intriguing for the simple reason that what was "high octane speculations" from last year and the year before, now seem to be entering the realm of speculation in at least major investment advisory site:

"Despite previously characterizing the idea that it was planning on moving gold out of the New York Fed as an “irrational fear,” the German Bundesbank is set to announce a huge repatriation of its bullion this week, with France also being emptied of German gold in a sign that trust between central banks has hit rock bottom.

“'In what could be a watershed moment for the price, provenance, and future of physical gold, not to mention the “stability” of the entire monetary regime based on rock solid, undisputed “faith and credit” in paper money, German Handelsblatt reports in an exclusive that the long suffering German gold, all official 3,396 tons of it, is about to be moved. Specifically, it is about to be partially moved out of the New York Fed, where the majority, or 45% of it is currently stored, as well as the entirety of the 11% of German gold held with the Banque de France, and repatriated back home to Buba in Frankfurt,' reports Zero Hedge. Apparently, since a significant proportion of that gold is now being moved out of the New York Fed, are we to assume that this “trust” no longer exists?"

What is new here is the Handelsblatt is now maintaining that all of Germany's foreign gold reserves, "all official 3,396 tons of it," is to be moved from the NY Fed and from the Bank of France.

But there's more, and my bet is that the reader noticed it too, and that is the reasons being offered for the new decision:

"Financial analyst Jim Willie sensationally claims that Germany is preparing to ditch the unipolar system backed by NATO and the U.S. in favor of joining the BRICS nations, and that this is why the NSA was caught spying on Angela Merkel and other German leaders.

"(The) real reason behind the recent NSA surveillance scandal targeting Germany was centered around the United States’ fear that Europe’s financial powerhouse is looking to escape from an inevitable dollar collapse."

This move of Germany towards the BRICSA bloc, and a decoupling from NATO, has been in my high octane predictions list for at least two years. What is unique here is specific wording: a decoupling not merely from the unipolar dollar system, but from NATO, i.e., Investment Watch is maintaining that the gold move signals a potential collapse of the NATO system, for without Germany, there really is no NATO. After all, as Zbigniew Brzezinski put it in his The Grand Chessboard, the formation of NATO was as much about how to contain German power, as it was about hedging in the Soviet bloc. And for the German leadership, NATO was as much about... well... that's another story best left for another venue.
What is interesting here is that the timing of the article makes sense, for as other stories this last week indicate, not only Germany, but America's "special relationship ally," Great Britain, and even Israel, have announced their intention to join China's new Asian development bank. In Britain and Germany's case, these two nations are joining as founding members, that is to say, one may expect that they will have permanent seats, and thus influence, within the new bank, which many are already seeing as a rival to the US's system of the IMF and World Bank.
Time will tell, of course, whether Germany will be successful with this latest alleged repatriation attempt. But now, the lines are drawn and the intentions are clear, and the pressure on the New York Federal Reserve are now immense: repatriate, or be self-evidently no longer a trustworthy organization.
So why the move? Herewith the high octane speculation of the day: if there is, as I have argued, a hidden system of finance that has been in place since the Truman administration, a system used to fund a long-term mega-Manhattan Project for research into exotic technologies, then what these moves also portend are not merely moves against the overt system of Western finance, but a blow against the covert one. And that has other implications, for if those projects and that hidden financial system were designed to develop exotic UFO-related technologies - as I believe they were- and to put into place a "gatekeeping" counter-intelligence operation to suppress certain data about those things and related subjects, then the move is also slated to give those nations greater influence over those subjects, and any public discussion of them.
See you on the flip side.



  1. It will be interesting to watch and see what happens with the ongoing rain of bankster suicides after Germany has its last bit of gold repatriated…

  2. Well, according to the video, Germany’s getting its gold back from France because they no longer need the gold to settle accounts, since their currency is now the same. It said it’s leaving gold in New York and London and avoided mention of how much it was repatriating from the US and Britain… something about it taking until 2020… so… other than getting all its gold out of France, doesn’t sound like much has changed… going by the video….

  3. And yet hanging over it all is the insane game of “chicken” that the US is playing with the Globe – their mask is now that of the cornered “mad dog” who would take the world down in flames should it de-dollarize and de-NATOize. Germany and everyone else now wonders just how hard they can push back before sparking an Armageddon.

  4. I agree with your high octane speculation of the day. But, what if that mega-Manhattan Project is finished, rendering the financial structure to support it irrelevant. Ben Rich made his famous statement years ago, so by now they may have perfected their technology to a degree that they are moving past the Tower of Babel moment, as you call it, and into mass production (3-D printing). It could be that these banking systems themselves are no longer the ultimate controllers of the financial system, but something else is, which would also mean that the Elites, whoever they are, don’t really care about the Federal Reserve any more than any other bank. The real prize, the true means of financial control, could be off-world. Just a thought.

    1. Loisg, you might be onto something regarding the Federal Reserve. I recall a few months back Chaney saying something to the effect that the deficit and debt are meaningless when asked by a reporter about the increasing debt. Maybe its all a ruse. Don’t know.

  5. I can see Germany leaving NATO, but not the EU. Frau Merkel is pro EU and I don’t think she would do it. The only way Germany would send a stern message of leaving the western alliance, is to give the US bases in Germany their “pink slips”, then, and only then, would the game be really over. The gold thing is significant, but it’s only a small part of the big picture. If Greece exits, then that may be the catalyst for other unhappy nations to pull the pin. I mean there are NO NATIONS who like being told what to do, and knowing Germany’ history, they are a very proud nation who paid a heavy penalty from WW11. So, lets just sit on our hands for a while and see “WHO” moves next.

  6. Happy Ishtar, folks!

    My first thoughts on reading this latest move to massively repatriate German gold from the Fed and France is that Germany is preparing its own just-in-case exit strategy from the Euro.

    Many analysts have predicted that the Euro would crack up from Germany coming off the top, not Greece from the bottom, and these latest moves by the Buba would do a great deal to bolster the standing of a new Deutschmark, if one were in the offing.

    Well I for one think all countries that house their gold (Au) in USA will follow suit now and this is overdue with the reminder that the metal is not legal tender in the USA they passed law to stop ownership for the citizens and do not use it to back up their cash right. Full cycle fitting really as it is written so shall it be their stewardship has shown wanting and the book keeping has much to be concerned about do not panic all for the best and ultimate good of the world as a whole.

    1. What a wonderful way with words you have, Frankie. Space galleons and solid gold asteroids indeed! All bound to happen anyway…

    Hmmm, let me see. Side with the hopelessly corrupt nation where it takes no less than a dozen bribes just to open up a corner noodle shop and its chief claim to fame is supplying Wal Mart, or side with the nation with the working starfleet probably already exploring the galaxy and can throw meteors at its enemies at will? I say good riddance to these fair weather allies. Maybe this is just an ingenious strategy to shed some dead wait– like Great Britain and Israel. Let these parasites drag somebody else down. Bedsides, now we won’t have to share all the loot we get from out in space. Hey and Israel, take those neo-cons with you along with all your “art students” and other spies. Maybe you can go work your magic over in Bejing now that you think they are the new power to leech off of. But good luck taking over their tv programming. Something tells me you will have trouble assimilating. Besides, we don’t need to worry about you guys doing your Tuesday dances around our burning buildings anymore every time you want us to start a war with somebody.

    And Germany and Russia together? I give that honeymoon about a year before they start moving all their tanks and artillery to their borders. These people can never get along. The same goes for France who is never going to take orders from Russia, Germany, or Great Britain. The only thing that keeps all these Europeans together right now is the commiseration they share over being the US’s lapdogs. Don’t these self-righteous fools know they need the United States? We make them feel good about themselves with our aggressive immorality and our overbearing foreign policy. By giving the whole continent something to gripe about, we have turned these age old rivals into friends. We have become the focus of their ire, allowing them to all get along for the first time in thousands of years. Now they are going experiment with their own US-free development bank where everybody will be the chief and nobody the Indian… not even the Indians? Right away everybody will be demanding money be sent to their sphere of influence. It’ll be more disorderly than the crowd in one of their boring soccer matches. It’ll never work.

    This was all bound to happen anyway. Remember when Spain and Portugal cut loose all their bottom feeders right before they cracked open the new world? Looks like we might be stealing a page from their play book. The rest of the world will be begging to shine our shoes once again when we return from space dragging back giant asteroids made of solid gold or other rare minerals. And I’m sure we can make all kind of friends out there that we can start a development bank with. And now we won’t be tied down by any treaty obligations like NATO in case our new space friends decide there is something they like within the borders of one of our former friends. Good riddance to you all. Enjoy your provincial development bank/haggle fest. We will be back to bail you out after we staked our claim out in the galaxy and filled our space galleons with plunder.

    Oh, and former friends, don’t get any ideas about ganging up on the US and splitting our continent in two while our starfleet is away. We will sill have our space based weapons aiming down at you all just in case you decide to try something sneaky.

      Ja, das ist GUT!

      Too often the toxic goods are transferred to the public’s ledger; while the goodies are transferred to private ledgers. All paid on the public’s dime of course.

    Well this Western-Central Europe becoming sick and tired off the Norseman-American Viking raids-wars around the World. Since the Confederate States of America has only warfare and reducing the rest of humanity to slavery they can’t be trusted with Europe gold anymore. They’ve even gotten Banque de France involve in this mess Charles de Gaulle must be rolling in his grave now.

          Thanks for the Easter “Good News” basket.
          Apparently it takes ice-nerves to go against the Octopus[Bansters’ Inc.]. Of course, the people controlling the purse strings of “their” nation is the sine qua non of ANY Nation State. All others are just dressed-up puppets of their Octopus Masters.
          The Caveat is to have SOLID checks & balance to that “public” check book & no “partnerships” with any form of the devil[Private Entities].
          Benjamin Franklin said that the flow of money should be a balance. A 100% employment is had when its right; too much requires a tax until inflation disappear[the English Redcoats flooded colonial script with HUGE counterfeits]; unemployment requires more robust money flowing into the economy. Its fairly simple; until the devil gets into the details w/purposed sabotage.
          Thanks again, Margaret.
          Hopefully some other “Nations” will see more clearly, that ice-nerves are not required; just common sense. The money system should be a public utility; as should health; power; justice; internet; media; welfare; education; all part of the Commons.

  11. Ok someone please clue me in on what I can look up to discover more about Germany’s original true intentions regarding NATO.

  12. Dr. J. Willie has been on top of the BRIIICSSA 105 nation alliance and the ever increasing isolation of the AngloSphere due to our “War w/o End Amen” foreign policy.. Let’s not forget our incessant money printing, spying and other more heinous violations of sovereign nations persons and property all around the planet. So, if the shift to a more representative global World Reserve Currency does come. What will be the ramifications here in the US? With that, a Happy Easter to all.
