Babylon's Bankers

WHO’S MINDING THE MINT?

Every now and then I receive a story that (1) comes from a source I do not know, (2) that is full of sensational details that make me question the whole narrative, and (3) which details nonetheless "connect" to other stories I do credit. That's the case today with this story shared by A.F., and the story it connects to are those bearer bond stories, and my hypothesis of a hidden system of finance, based upon obfuscated bullion amounts, the physical transfer of bearer bonds, and just a whole lot of rehypothecation and other types of fraud and malfeasance, including "official counterfeiting". Additionally, I believe in some fashion it is related to the "missing trillions" that Catherine Austin Fitts, Dr. Mark Scidmore, and others have talked about. In any case, when I get such stories, I simply have to blog about them, following my method of assuming the details to be true for the sake of the daily dose of high octane speculation.

In this case, there's one detail in particular about this lengthy article that leapt right off the page that "connects" to another detail I've heard about before, in a work of "fact-tion" (alleged fact, disguised as fiction), but we'll get back to that. Here's the lengthy article:

3,500 Ton Philippine Gold Bars Unlawfully Shipped Out, But for Whose Benefit?

Now before we get to the peculiar detail that leapt off the page, I want to review a few of the other details advanced by the article that "connect" and make me willing to take its allegations seriously. The first concerns the alleged Philippine shipment of some 3,5oo tons of gold:

The Philippines is rocked again by another scandal involving the previous administration of Benigno Aquino III for having illegally shipped out 3,500 metric tons of 99.999% pure gold, with an estimated value of $141 billion, out of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas’ vault.

Said amount of gold were used to back up the printing of $3 trillion USD paper currency, early last year. But for whose benefit?

Now this in and of itself dovetails with something I've mentioned in numerous blogs, talks at conferences (the San Mateo Secret Space Program conference in 2014, for example), and in my book Covert Wars and Breakaway Civilizations, and hinted at in Financial Vipers of Venice, and that detail is that the amounts of gold bullion in existence are badly obfuscated, and perhaps "off" of public estimations by as much as an order of magnitude. My reason for maintaining this view was the Sterling and Peggy Seagrave book titled Gold Warriors, which reviews the implications of the USA's top secret recovery of Japanese gold bullion looted from Asia during World War Two under the effort codenamed Operation Golden Lily, and headed by a member of the Japanese Imperial household, Prince Chichibu. Much of this loot was buried in the Philippine archipelago, and was discovered by - here it comes - Major (later General) Ed Lansdale. (For those wondering who Lansdale was, he is strongly suspected of being involved in the periperhy of the JFK assassination, and was the "boss" of the Mr X of Oliver Stone's film, JFK, who in real life was Col. Fletcher Prouty. Lansdale is strongly  suspected of having been in Dallas on the day of the assassination. The gold connection is indeed intriguing, given JFK's dealings with Indonesia at the time, and the discovery prior to the world war of a rich gold mine in that country.) Anyway,  back to the Japanese gold story:  It was buried there by Japanese General Yamashita, later hung (many think unfairly) for war crimes. Admittedly, hanging the Japanese general responsible for burying the loot would be a good way to keep it a big secret.

What is intriguing to me here is precisely the amount of gold being alleged in the secret shipment: 3,500, or in other words, about the same amount of gold as estimates state is possessed by Germany, which, after the USA, supposedly has the world's second largest gold reserves. To put this point country simple: the amount of gold being alleged in the transfer challenges official estimations of the amount of gold in existence. To put it differently yet again, if this detail is true, then it's another confirmation of my "hidden system of finance" hypothesis, which system is in part based on this secret gold reserve.

This brings me to the second connection in the article to other stories:

Quote, “there is clear and indisputable proof that the aforesaid USD Notes are being printed against a Certified True copy of a Gold Bullion Certificate, claimed to be issued by Union Bank of Switzerland (UBS), covering 3,500 MT of 99.999 Gold in 12.5 Kg Bars taken out of the country and deposited in UBS and registered under the name of Ferdinand E. Marcos as owner.”

5). Above Why is UBS of Switzerland, known as one of the most crooked banks in the world; as a Custodian of Collateral Account Assets / Accounts allowing a Gold Bullion Certificate issued through them, not by them, and under their Custodianship, allowing same to be used unlawfully as the Collateral for the $3 Trillion US Dollar Notes, when they should be fully aware that the Gold Bullion Certificate is already Liened and cannot be used twice without removing the original Lien.

Now this part of the story regarding the former and late Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos, and the Union Bank of Switzerland, is not new to anyone following it; both have appeared before, and their appearance here is no surprise. It's another connection to the whole Bearer Bonds saga, some of which were allegedly recovered in the Philippines when an aircraft supposedly carried a bunch of the "fake" bearer bonds crashed there, only to be recovered by a local. I tend to credit these stories, because they fit similar patterns regarding Indonesia and Nationalist (Khoumintang) China. It's worth recalling that Marcos allegedly began his own secret recovery of the Yamashita gold, and that it was primarily for this reason that the Reagan administration pulled the plug on the Marcos regime.

With all this as a bit of background, what leapt out at me in this article was the following astonishing allegation (apart from the reference to the speeches of Congressman Louis McFadden, a whole other story I'm afraid):

1). AMERICA, via the FEDERAL RESERVE SYSTEM, gave approval, back in the latter part of 2014, to the PHILIPPINE DEPARTMENT OF FINANCE, TREASURY DEPARTMENT (ROXAS BOULEVARD, CORNER OF PABLO OCAMPO ST., MANILA, PHLIPPINES), to print THREE TRILLION US DOLLARS ($3,000,000,000,000.00 USD) in $100 USD denominations. The serial numbers of these notes are shown on page 1 of the below documents.

2). The Department of Finance of the Philippines sub-contracted the printing of the aforesaid USD notes to a company in Thailand called CENTENNIAL ENERGY (THAILAND) COMPANY LIMITED. NOTE: This is a Thai company that focuses on Energy production NOT a company that specializes in the printing of Bank Notes.

3). It will be seen from Page 2 of the aforesaid documents that there are official regulations in place within the Philippines that allows them to print US Dollars on behalf of the American Government based upon Section 51 of R.A. 7736 of an Agreement between The United States of America and the Republic of the Philippines.

Now, if these details are true, then the implications for any such "hidden system of finance" are enormous, for it means that there are literally hidden mints, hidden versions of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, that, under contract, are printing US currency overseas. (If  this sounds a bit like that episode of the "occupation money" and its plates that I detailed in my book McCarthy, Montmouth, and the Deep State you'd be correct in that assumption.) This has a further implication: if US currency is being printed overseas, then this means that the engraving plates are in the hands of interests that may or may not represent the best interests of the United States, but private interests. Again, this would not be the first time this has occurred, because as already mentioned, Senator Joseph McCarthy, taking a cue from Major George Racey Jordan's appearance before the House Unamaerican Activities Committee, alleged that occupation money plates had been turned over to the Soviets. Pursuing the matter, McCarthy's committee learned that the operation went much deeper than that, suggesting that the occupation money scheme was part of a much larger operation.

I find this whole question of the existence of "US mints on foreign soil," or "a hidden system of mints" to complement the hidden system of finance to be both logical and incredible at one and the same time. Indeed, it brings me to a strange book titled Supernotes, which first appeared in Italy, and authored by Luigi Carletti and "Agent Kasper." The central tenet of the book is indeed about "secret mints" and stolen, or donated, US currency plates for the covert and mass production of US currency. The book in the guise of fiction argues that there are indeed secret mints, using real (or fabricated) plates mass producing US currency ala the World War Two Nazi counterfeiting operation called "Operation Bernard". A Nazi operator involved in the counterfeiting, Friedrich von Schwend, also "tweaked" the operation by using it as a source of covert funding for Nazi black projects research. Or as Carletti and "Agent Kasper" put it in their book, "Who could set up an American mint in another country? People accustomed to moving men and things about casually. People not obliged to give explanations. People in  American intelligence," (p. 233)  which provides a convenient source of financing completely apart from the Federal budget and any oversight (p. 234).

What's the lesson here? Very simple: if you want to kill a country's currency and economy, establish a secret system of finance, with its own hidden gold reserves and secret mints, and thereby kill transparency, and trust, because such a two-tiered system also always implies a double standard of the application of law...

See you on the flip side...

  1. Every single time I read about another shenanigans of power holders of this world I am reminded of phrase coined by one of my favorite Polish blogger Coryllus “there are only two
    kind of powers in this world: sacred or secret ” and there is nothing in between.

    Off topic. Once more 18 elephants died due to a lightning strike. This time in India and again no mentioning of other dead animals.

    If any news article that can live up to the truth is stranger than fiction this one would be at the top or close to it. I doubt even the most paranoid of paranoids could come up with a twisted scheme like this, not even the underworld crimelords would touch this with a ten-foot pole.

  4. Ed Lansdale is a key figure in the history of the CIA and american involvement in the far east. He was apparently a CIA officer in military uniform as Fletcher Prouty describes “them” (he says a lot of military uniforms are actually spooks) and he was responsible for getting Magsaysay elected as a suppressor of Lansdale’s own fake communist uprising in the Phillipines.
    Landsdale then went on to Vietnam and was a key figure there in the CIA war starting after the defeat of the french.
    Lansdale was a contemporary of William Colby in Saigon, and was also allegedly in Dallas when Kennedy was killed.

    1. You’re right about cee eye aa in uniforms. We had a couple in Korea and they can be spotted a mile away. Very treacherous and treasonous people. Not at all patriots.

    Don’t get me started on the privately banking cartel that goes waaay back.
    The blog’s title brings to mind:
    It doesn’t matter who prints the currency; but who issues it.

    To today’s post.

    The international banking cartel;
    and Everything that spawns from it, is based upon fraud.
    Therefore, the current financial model; is one based upon fraud.
    The current business model; is one based upon fraud.
    Is it any wonder that the current covid1984 op; is one based upon fraud?

    Loved your portmanteau faction!
    Recently ran across another stellar portmanteau:
    metabolical, the blending of metabolic-the workings of the body;
    and diabolical-the workings of food, pharma, the Feds, and the WEF.

    And there the United States are.
    The international banking cartel starts WW1
    right after the alchemical Creature From Jekyll Island
    officially becomes the Federal Reserve by law.
    Another treasonous act; that the international press becomes blind to.

    So what all has spawned from this ancient evil?
    The short answer: What hasn’t?

    1. I saw this. What a nifty way to steal silver and wash it off the books as an accounting trick…

    JF presents a case for there being much more gold in existence than generally thought, and the USD being an even worse store of value than thought. Bitcoin with its known limit of issue looks better and better.

  7. Joseph,
    I watch quite a few of these little financial programs that are available on-line Kitco, Stansberry Research etc. Not for personal financial reasons but as a way of sussing the thoughts of such people. They feature guests who lately, seem focused on preserving wealth rather than generating it. Some of the guests discuss the financial system with unusual candor amidst quips about being censored off their platforms. One of these experts recently estimated that there was 10 trillion worth of gold in the world which is around 156,000 tons at 64 million dollars a ton. Here is the clip. The remark is about at 2:28 seconds in. Of course, he may be referring to gold as yet un-mined as opposed to that in circulation? Perhaps he’s full of shit? https://youtu.be/gULWHRUvwF8?t=140 Best, Chris

  8. I remember when Trump first got in office, one of the first things to happen was a military man, Navy admiral comes to mind, went to the Philippines. I filed it away in my head because I knew about the WW2 story. A blogger at the time, who I CANNOT vouch for, said Trump had all the gold he needed for our debt, but it would not go further than that; if we went back on a gold standard, we could pay what we owe but we’d be back to zero afterwards.

    1. This story, if true, opens up a whole new can of worms. What was Trump offering in return for the gold? I don’t know that I heard this, but the story poses a blizzard of questions I would love to see answered.

    2. The names I now see attached to this story makes me wonder whether it is true. If this is whistle-blower stuff, all I hear is noise. Like Dr. Farrell, I prefer something grounded in factual details that promise some ability to verify.

    3. Trump was talking about the gold in the vaults under the Vatican that will be used to pay off all the debits of the newly reconstituted USA Republic. Now my question is will Trump also have access to the gold under the Switzerland banks and mountains??

      My guess is its a real possibility due to the transfer of ownership of the entire earthly realm from the former owners to the new owners. The big question is who are the new owners going to actually be??

  9. Heaven forbid that the US authorities change the design of Federal Reserve Notes and require that all old notes be surrendered and exchanged for new before a certain fixed date, after which all old notes would no longer be legal tender.

    1. If it doesn’t say Federal Reserve Treasury Note you do not have to surrender it. Just because a bill or coin says United States does not mean it’s the property of the existing banking system. This is all I will say about this.

      1. True, us coins are not mentioned in 1913 reserve act and are still produced by us treasury.

        1. Very interesting. Wondered why there were such offers for coins, especially, gold and silver.

  10. Wow! “Official counterfeiting” I must read the McCarthy books! Fascinating stuff!

    1. Absolutely. We were told McCarthy was chasing down Communists. Wait until you see what he was really chasing. McCarthy knew things were connected–he was just trying to figure out how and who all was involved. Trumps links to McCarthy is the largest stunner of all.

    That confirms, that there is only ONE empire throughout history, that moves around on the world map, by trickery.

    Downfall of Assyrian empire was caused, by a magic creature. When Gulliver thinks like a horse, he is more Houyhnhnm, than Yahoo.

    Assyrian empire cared less for animals, and was known to have been cruel, to lesser beings, whose loyalty it disregarded.

    SCYTHIAN WARFARE 2

    When horse and man are one,
    warfare is already won,
    as voice of land
    will stand,
    when all is said and done.

    1. Does it really matter when the whole “system is rigged, corrupt and broken” (Trump).
