This article, shared by one of our regular readers here, Ms. M.W., I thought was very interesting, and while I was reading it, my mind was working overtime on high octane speculations for certain reasons, and I wonder if yours will as well, when you read it:

Planetary Resources and the Government of Luxembourg Announce €25 Million Investment and Cooperation Agreement

Now, as the article points out, the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg has a history of private-government cooperative ventures of this sort, and was instrumental, in some respects, in helping the privatized satellite industry - which we now take so for granted - get started in the 1960s. In this respect, there's nothing new here, nor nothing so significant here. And in fact, I've blogged about this story before on this website, regarding the Grand Duchy's intentions to get in on the space mining act; this story now adds a specific detail to that intention.

But there's something else here - another possibility - that intrigues me, and provides some grist for the high octane speculation mill, for Luxembourg is, of course, also an international banking hub, in some respects rivaling more well-known Switzerland. Indeed, if one recalls the BCCI scandal (Band of Credit and Commerce International, or as we like to refer to it here, the Bank of Crooks and Criminals International) began to break in Europe, and Luxembourg was one of its key headquarters during its heyday. So when I see stories combining (1) space mining and (2) international banking hubs with (3) and association to one of the most notorious banking scandals of the last century, I begin to wonder if there might be a much deeper story lurking in the background here.

For some time, now, I've been watching what I believe to be a hidden system of finance - not a black budget but a completely hidden one - that was constructed prior, during, and most importantly after World War Two, consisting of the participation of prime banks, utilizing Axis loot, and moving all this money around via a strange network of hidden bonds trading networks and "bearer bonds" backed by various commodities, including bullion and drugs. It sounds strange and wild, I know, but that essentially is the hypothesis I came to after having researched the postwar activities of Fascists and western corporatists, globalists, and bankers. We've been given the occasional clue or hint of the existence of this network with the various bearer bonds scandals, and the occasional story of missing billions or trillions from the federal budget.

As a component of this hypothesis I have been arguing, both in books (Covert Wars and Breakaway Civilizations) and in conferences (The 2014 Secret Space Program Conference in San Mateo), that the participation of prime banks in this system was obtained by collateralizing space and whatever was out there, including any potential ancient technology. (Stop and ponder that one for a moment: for a long term agenda to recover such technology would be not only of interest to certain "families" with ancient roots, but the activity could be cloaked and indeed financed by corporations, foundations, and governments.)  Thus, this story could be viewed as yet another small confirmation of this basic structure and agenda.

But there's another set of possibilities here, given the Grand Duchy's role as an international banking hub, and for playing home to such institutions as BCCI. If one wanted to perpetuate such a hidden system, which doubtless has been of immense pecuniary benefit to the institutions involved in running and maintaining it, then one way to perpetuate and mask the system - and perhaps even launder more money - would be via a cloaking story such as space mining. Imagine this scenario for a moment in conjunction with the following question: how would one cloak such activities from the prying eyes of auditing accounting firms or regulators? Space would be a perfect environment in which to do so, because few institutions, governments, or corporations have access to it. The possibility for juggling ledger statements from "out there" to "down here" represents an enormous potential for "space-based financial fraud."

Now of course, I'm not saying that this is what is going on with this story, nor that the mandarins of the Grand Duchy have any such thing in mind. This specific story was, rather, a trigger for these high octane speculations, and with these two ends of the spectrum in mind, a third potential exists, namely, to do both.

See you on the flip side...
