GRAND DUCHY OF LUXEMBOURG ENTERS THE ASTEROID MINING BUSINESS
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...

I had two immediate thoughts come-up via this column:
First, there is a ‘stash’ of either ancient tech or actual ET bodies. These are located in the financial or religious capitals of the world. When a war, contract, or important ‘deal’ is being resisted, the offender is brought to the appropriate cache. (Or maybe even a live ET.) The newbie is overawed and submits. Problem solved; plan moves forward…
Second, and don’t take this the wrong way, Dr. Farrell is alive. He is not hanging under Black Friars Bridge or an equivalent-end. This is from a “The X-Files” perspective. Anyone with REAL knowledge of an important hidden-system is ‘dealt-with’. So, I would expect Dr. Farrell – under this ‘protocol’ – to be either compromised or deemed far-enough-away from the real truth to be ignored. I am sorry to say it this way, but the good doctor’s ‘street creds’ will rise as his life-expectancy goes down. This is not to say that Dr. Farrell should not keep ‘connecting-the-dots’ (Thanks!), but that there will be ‘other indicators’ that he is getting close to the mark…
or doc’s lack of cred with more than 99% of the public (sorry again doc) makes it easy enough for mr global’s propagandists to write him off with political assassinations as needed.
Your hidden system of finance insight is signature Farrell.
The more things transpire; the more your analyses lines up. Space is the to-die-for vehicle that delivers it in spades!
The duchy of Luxemburg is no more than a tribal chiefdom ruled by rich Europeans. A perfect front for a grand Ponzi scheme and for hiding doggie business practices. Just wondering what technologies they will be using to carryout this space asteroid mining and don’t tell me they will be using rockets chemical or nuclear.
I dont know how they’d price the minerals that they recuperate. Overheads and costs need to be balanced, but will it be profitable. Come back with a million tons of iron and nickel, the prices will free fall. UNLESS you dont say that you have a stock of million tons of iron and nickel.. keep the price up… Like the Americans did with Japans gold.
Another possibility would be using what you mined to build out your “fleet”. All the minerals mined on Earth are entered into the system and tracked through sales etc. However, if you wanted to fabricate a fleet of spacecraft utilizing exotic technologies for the specific purpose of searching for “ancient technology” and mining, you couldn’t ask for a better way to do it without any traceability. This was hinted at in the Star Trek movie with the assembly plant positioned near Saturn for the construction of “Militarized space craft” using “advanced technology”.
Keeping it secret wouldn’t be that hard, you take your personnel out there and just leave them there and build your infrastructure in areas which simply can’t be observed from Earth based methods such as the far side of the Moon or orbiting behind planets or within the asteroid belt where the bulk of your mining would be located.
The only problem that might arise would be if “someone else” is already there. However, if that “someone else” is using robotic mining and processing, which has already been discussed on this site, then it wouldn’t be a problem until “they” dropped by to pick up a shipment.
Just how long does it take to strip mine an entire solar system anyway? What do you do with those pesky simian locals, leave them for last or just leave them alone. They won’t be going anywhere once you have strip mined their entire solar system; they simply won’t have the means to do so.
An updated spaced-out version of Pump & Dump.
what comes around goes around and above and below are samazdat
and debeers did with south africa’s diamonds, and……………..
If this were a sham, it would be all the more vile if those perpetrating it were already well aware that the resources of the solar system, to say nothing of those lying far beyond it, were not ours to claim or to trade. Could everything out there still remain “up for grabs” then, notwithstanding nearby evidence of million-years-old past civilizations?
Perhaps the more advanced civilizations view the concept of ownership similarly to Native Americans, who saw spirit in all things and therefore conceived of no right to possess them, rather than similarly to bankers and CEOs, whose soulless psyches see nothing of value but what might be sold at profit. In either of these two cases, history promises a fight.
Only if space remains a barren frontier, as yet unsettled by treaties and pioneers, or if the deep state has already successfully mined the long-buried treasures of Mars and valuable resources elsewhere within this solar system (in the process proving that Earth humans will be permitted to do so), would such a mining venture represent anything other than a space-based “pyramid scheme”.
Loved your Native American viewpoint.
Well said. But I always viewed Mr Global in terms of the Ferengi in the Star Trek, the Next Generation. And, if Roxana Troi’s description of their vessel is correct, Mr Global probably smells just as bad.
Daryl, my thought on the matter is that ‘ownership/property-rights’ will devolve to the lowest species’ viewpoint. It is hard being spiritual when a planet-killer is heading your way. (In the internet ‘literature’, the Lyrans had a rude-awakening in that way…)
The only exception that I could see to this scenario is if the advanced-species were willing to mind-control the more primitive species. Think about launching a planet-killer to the Vorlon homeworld, and your thoughts would suddenly-and-inexplicably turn to gardening…
goshawks, obviously alien species may have evolved in galactic environments far more exotic than ours, where, for example, the stronger influences of dark matter and dark energy fostered innate “dark” abilities analogous to, but far more formidable than, the magnetic-pole navigation of Earth birds; or where an abundance of exotic matter — super-heavy, superconducting elements, perhaps even anti-matter — created effects upon their immediate environment so profound, e.g. periodic space-time vortexes akin to our geothermal geysers, as to make an understanding of advanced physics not only probable but almost innate. Yet such an innate, ultra-sensory connection to an intense environment could make it more likely, not less, that they would see spirit in all things — and would vindicate these beliefs by the wielding of exotic power.
(ouff this is gonna get modded to kingdom come and back :))
“as yet unsettled by treaties and pioneers”
“The 1979 Moon Treaty builds on another 1967 principle, space for the benefit of mankind, to dictate an international regime that will be established at a future date to regulate space resources “in place,” declared now the ” common heritage of mankind.” Neither the United States nor the Soviet Union is likely to sign this treaty. Nor is the treaty likely to gain wide acceptance, authority, or standing as law.” (bwahaha ha ha ha ha, “benefit of Mankind” …. How 70’s…0.0)
Interesting that a few years back I applied for a job at PricewaterhouseCooper and one of the questions asked on the application was if I was willing to travel to outer space. I thoughts this was odd and ultimately I opted not to give up my job at the Brazilian waxing clinic.
I do look forward to the day when our space galleons return filled with spice and black goo and dragging behind them giant mineral rich asteroids. This will finally silence all those critics and naysayers who incessantly questioned the secret siphoning off of 50 trillion dollars from the global economy along with the other methods of finance like the drug trade and war racket.
I tend to view the elite and the banks/corporations they own like the aliens in the “Independence Day” movies; they are like locusts devouring everything in their path. Once they have devoured everything here they will move on leaving the rest of us behind.
Time to get out the bug spray…
There’s a Mr. Haney from Green Acres that’s been waiting to sell you that bug spray.
Remember what the ‘bug’ from the original “Men in Black” did to the bug sprayer?
I thought you worked in Bangladesh.
