MOVE OVER SWIFT… BUT IS SPACE THE REAL REASON?
Hello fellow Gizars! After an entire day on Sunday trying to fix a problem on the website, thanks to the assistance of Ms. K.M. and Mr. B.H. we were able to locate the problem. But that meant that Sunday, the day I ordinarily try to review emails and select stories to blog about, was wasted, and Monday I had repairmen out to install a new air conditioner condenser. So I appreciate your patience the past two days over the lack of blogs.
That brings us to today's story, which several people noticed. It's one of those short but highly significant stories, and the perfect occasion to resume our high octane speculations. Indeed, Mr. B. noticed one of those implications immediately, and that particular implication forms the basis for today's high octane speculation.
The story is simplicity itself: Russia has become a participant in China's alternative to the west's SWIFT system of international financial clearing:
Russian banks join Chinese alternative to SWIFT payment system
But note what the article actually states, for China's is not the only emergent alternative to SWIFT; there is also Russia's SPFS system, which Russia inaugurated some years ago after its "invasion" and "annexation" of the Crimean peninsula and the corresponding denunciations in the West's mockingbird media:
Meanwhile, the regulator hopes that Chinese counterparts pay more attention to Russia’s own SWIFT (Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication) alternative, SPFS (System for Transfer of Financial Messages), as it can further boost bilateral trade, the official added.
Russia is actively demonstrating the SPFS network, which was created in 2014 in response US threats of disconnecting Russia from SWIFT, to foreign partners, including China after its export version was finished late last year. The first system transaction involving a non-bank enterprise, was made by Russian oil major Rosneft in December 2017. Some 500 participants, with major Russian financial institutions and companies, have already joined.
As Mr. B. put it, this now builds triple redundancy into the system(s) of international financial clearing, the West's SWIFT, China's CIPS, and Russia's SPFS. In a certain sense one might add Japan's own system, in widespread use in the Pacific, for credit card clearing, which Japan could - and I predict ultimately will - build out into its own fullscale international clearing system. Recall that the Japanese offered to allow Russia to use this clearing system a few years ago when Western, i.e., American, sanctions threatened to remove Russia from access to SWIFT. The Japanese move was not really noticed nor commented upon extensively for its geopolitical message, which was profound: Japan simply was no longer willing to kow tow to Swampington, D.C.'s edicts. Japan had deep reasons to make the offer, namely, it was creating a context of good will for upcoming negotiations with Russia.
Which brings us back to the observation of Mr. B., for if one factors the Japanese system into the mix, this builds quadruple redundancy into the international clearing system (or perhaps, triple-and-a-half redundancy, pending any Japanese build-out of its system). I suspect that the conventional geopolitical and financial explanations for these moves are familiar to most readers here: Russia and China (and for that matter, ultimately India and Japan) need such systems, independent of SWIFT and threats of American sanctions.
This brings me to my high octane speculation of the day, and to consider these moves from an entirely different perspective by removing the standard geopolitical context as the explanation for them. Once one does so, the question then becomes "why would one build quadruple redundancy" into an overall system of international financial clearing? I strongly suspect that the answer is a military one, for redundant and ultimately hardened systems are a hallmark of military preparations to secure essential communications systems - and financial clearing is an aspect of communications - from any potential threat. I pointed out in my book Covert Wars and Breakaway Civilizations, and again at the 2014 Secret Space Program conference in San Mateo, California, that one of the concerns of the Brookings Report (1958) for space development was the use of space-based assets for communications and financial clearing, and that in that context, the UFO, and some apparently hostile activity connected with some UFO reports against airborne and the few space-based assets of the time, raised the issue of financial clearing and redundancy to the level of a national security issue. Viewed this way, it is also a planetary security issue, and the build-out of redundancy in international financial clearing, and the correspondent breaking of SWIFT's monopoly, may have other reasons than "down-to-earth" geopolitics, and other "potential threats" may hover in the background. Indeed, with Russia, China, Japan (and India) being "space powers," and with each country expressing a desire to jump on board the "space mining train," eventually those clearing systems will have to become interplanetary in nature...
See you on the flip side...

I know nicht (or even passable German), but would not the International Clearing Houses have a Clearing House in the final mechanics of it? And have any of these countries (apart from perhaps Japan via Fukushima) been obliterated latetly for not obeying,consuming, denying?
No mention here about RotennshieldRedisst or the Tavistock Institute of Shattered Human Relations getting us to hate our earstwhile friends overnight, whomever they might be at the time. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-04-04/red-flag-riots-and-islamaphobia-australia/10954220
“mobilised hatred” indeed. There was only one American negro in the Bolshevik crusade imported, how about 20 million for an updated version and a jihad to boot?
ahh, I make my case.
“The Committee on Payment and Settlement Systems (CPSS) publishes – under the aegis of the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) – reference works on payment systems and the other financial market infrastructures in various countries, both CPSS member and nonmember countries. These publications are widely known as Red Books.
Following the enlargement of the CPSS in 2009, this edition of the Red Book for the CPSS countries is in two volumes. The first volume, which covers 10 CPSS countries (Australia, Brazil, Canada, India, Korea, Mexico, Russia, Singapore, Sweden and Switzerland), was published in September 2011”
The good ol’ boys of the BIS.
2010 announced a review
logo and contact are BIS for long , or BS for short.
and lo and behold this released the DAY BEFORE Fukushima.
“Washington, D.C., March 10, 2011 – The Committee on Payment and Settlement Systems (CPSS) and the Technical Committee of the International Organization of Securities Commission (IOSCO) today released for comment the consultative report on the Principles for Financial Market Infrastructures. ”
wonder if Nippon said “Well, arr, no thanks”
They should have been too busy evacuating to comment on any of it. You cannot “clearing house” radiation or cancer or infertility.
I always enjoy reading the comments of all you highly intelligent people!!! There are two issues I would like to mention:
1. The killings of the White Farmers in South Africa…..Sarah Westall did an excellent interview with Dr. Harry Booyens about his book, “AmaBhulu”.
2. The fact that our Southern Border has become a War Zone. Katie Hopkins did an interview with a man from Brownsville, TX. People along the border no longer even feel “safe” in their homes. One of his neighbors was even burned out by the “immigrants”. Those of us who live in “peace & safety” can hardly imagine having to “be on guard” every day; all the time.
You left out Iran and Pakistan Joseph and let us not forget Irag.
I think I would put the “triple-and-a-half redundancy” under the divide and conquer umbrella. I am going to run with the Charles Fort observation, “We are property” (of Enlil or descendants). The last thing you want to have happen is to have your cows/sheep organize . So, create enough ill-will that one sheep is pitted against another. Problem solved…
I am assuming the “owners” are pushing technology, for their own reasons. (Their foes coming back for a cleanup?) On the good side, this gives them fission/fusion/directed-energy weapons. On the bad side, this makes any ‘real’ war between sheeples disastrous for their plans. Total annihilation does not make for good worker/slave quantities.
So, take the divide and conquer into the financial realms. Keep the sheeple at each others’ throats, but only in financial warfare. To do this, of course, you need equal systems of international financial clearing…
That’s an intriguing idea.
Gotta say, if Trump is truly fighting centralization of the ‘global’ economy, then, that this is happening on his watch may be by design.
“The West’s mockingbird media”.
Excellent! I’m stealing that one.
When I read space: I not only think of space in terms of nations; but in transnational corporations, and never underestimate – Nazi International, lurking in the shadows.
The real problem on Earth & Heaven is the wannabe Gods.
Beings w/power to rule it over us.
Private Power$ that usurp governments, insti tutions, education, communications, u-name-it.
Space is THE prime a$$et to own- just like their soma slaves.
Were I Russia today watching the Swampington opera of singing crocodiles, I would logically send Sherlock Holmes, to go looking for the missing Tsar gold, that ended up in Wall Street.
A recent Russian TV Mini-Series 2017 about Trotsky, does “conveniently” leave out the economical transaction between Rottenchild and Trotsky – with Jacob Schiff as middleman – handing over 20 million dollars, to the mad revolutionary, to wreck havoc in Russia.
During the bloody Bolshevik revolution, the stolen Tsar gold was transported to Sweden, and melted by a J*wish banker named Aschberg, and given official stamp of Sweden.
That could not have been done, without participation of Sweden’s crowned head Bernadotte, (who is an offspring from the J*wish general of Napoleon, whom Napoleon allegedly called a snake, that he had nourish in his bosom.)
One must assume, that Rottenchild’s revolutionary investment returned profitable, and that the missing Tsar gold ended up in Wall Street. Millions of Russians died, by the hands of Trotsky. Rottenchild is to blame.
