‘Israel to US: I’m off to Iran… You’d better come…!’

Publicado el 08-03-12 - en English

It seems Israel’s leadership considers that its strategic, military, diplomatic and political ‘window of opportunity’ to make war against Iran is fast closing.  Israeli and US leaders seem united in their strategic goal of destroying Iran – as they were in destroying Iraq, Libya and Afghanistan – but they’re also at loggerheads as to which tactical road to tread.   The US prefers more economic and diplomatic pressure, coupled with continued covert operations inside Syria until the Assad government collapses and then Iran can be dealt with.   Israel favors unilateral all-out military attack against Iran now.

Either way, this week may mark the final days of very intensive talks between US leaders and Israeli leaders. Last week, Israel’s president Shimon Peres and ultra-right Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman were in Washington putting pressure on US authorities, calling for immediate military action against Iran. Then, on Monday President Barack Obama welcomed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House, reassuring him that “the United States will always have Israel’s back” and that whilst the United States “would prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon”, he added that, “we do believe there is still a window that allows for a diplomatic resolution to this issue.”

Still, tensions have been running high between the two countries. When US General Martin Dempsey called for moderation over Iran, it earned him Mr. Netanyahu’s accusation of being “a servant of Iran”.

Whatever finally happens, it will have to happen soon, because Israel, the US and the UK are very much aware that like the proverbial boy that cried “Wolf!” until nobody believed him anymore, they just cannot continue crying “We’re gonna take out Iran over its nukes!” and then do nothing.

Last week’s meetings in the US were particularly important. They had President Obama visiting for the Nth time the pro-Israel lobby AIPAC – American Israeli Public Affairs Committee – an organization that wields tremendous political, economic, financial, media and military leverage inside the US. So much so that at times it seems that AIPAC and the intricate network of pro-Zionist organizations it is part of, literally run the country. For AIPAC is the key transmission system whereby Israeli objectives and interests are imposed upon the US government, Congress and its media; and they do this in no uncertain terms.

Anybody who dares criticize AIPAC will immediately be struck by its Olympian bolts of lightning and branded an “Anti-Semite”, which is the very worst thing that can happen to any politician, diplomat, military officer, academic or journalist in the United States of America.

Among those hit by such Israeli lightning, are former president Jimmy Carter, his National Security Advisor and Trilateral Commission ideologue Zbigniew Brzezinski, and academics Stephen Walt of the Kennedy School at Harvard University and John Mearsheimer of Chicago University.

Former president Carter wrote a book in 2006 called Palestine: Peace not Apartheid in which he highlighted the glaring similarities of gross racial injustice that exist between today’s Israeli ethnic cleansing in Palestine and yesterday’s South African Apartheid. That got put him in AIPAC’s line of fire.

In 2007 Professors Walt and Mearsheimer published a book, The Israel Lobby and US Foreign Policy, focusing on the excessive clout and leverage that pro-Israel lobby organizations like AIPAC have on US foreign policy, and that earned them their share of Israeli ire.

The authors describe the Lobby as “a core consisting of organizations whose declared purpose is to encourage the US government and the American public to provide material aid to Israel and to support its government’s policies, as well as influential individuals for whom these goals are also a top priority”, adding that the “loose coalition that makes up the Lobby has significant leverage over the Executive Branch”.

AIPAC, they say, has a veritable “stranglehold on the US Congress” due to its “ability to reward legislators and congressional candidates who support its agenda, and to punish those who challenge it.”

Considering that Zionism is basically a political ideology, the authors explained that although “the bulk of the lobby is comprised of Jewish Americans there are many American Jews who are not part of the lobby…which also includes many Christian Zionists.”

Walt and Mearsheimer explained that “No lobby has managed to divert U.S. Foreign Policy as far from what the American national interest would otherwise suggest, while simultaneously convincing Americans that US and Israeli interests are essentially identical…What sets the Israel Lobby apart is its extraordinary effectiveness.”

They conclude that when the Lobby succeeds in shaping US policy in the Middle East, then “Israel’s enemies get weakened or overthrown, Israel gets a free hand with the Palestinians, and the United States does most of the fighting, dying, rebuilding, and paying.”

Today, in what appear to be final talks between the US and Israel before war is unleashed, Mr. Netanyahu emphasized that “Israel must have the ability to defend itself, by itself, against any threat.” And then thanked president Obama for affirming in his speech before AIPAC that, as he himself put it, “Israel has the sovereign right to make its own decisions.” According to Monday’s New York Times, Israeli officials interpreted this to mean that the United States would not try to block a preemptive Israeli strike.

Will it be war, then? Let’s hope not, but very dark and heavy clouds have certainly gathered on the horizon.

It may just be a coincidence, but interestingly, in recent years key foes of Israel have been destroyed by the US and UK on dates that coincide with the Jewish Festivity of Purim that falls every year on the 14th of the Hebrew month of Adar. Based on the Old Testament Book of Esther, Purim celebrates the slaughter of 75,000 enemies of the Jews throughout the Persia Empire (modern Iran, of all places!)

Purim falls on a different date each year in our Western calendar: in 1991 it fell on 1st March (actually it started at sunset on 28th February) which was the exact day the Bush I administration called victory in Iraq. In 2003, Purim fell on 19th March which is when Bush II invaded Iraq. Last year it again fell on 19th March, marking the first massive NATO attack on Libya.

This year Purim falls on 8th March. Will Israel and the US go into War Mode this week?

The Russian Wall

Publicado el 06-03-12 - en English

As a foreign observer writing from Argentina, we too are awaiting with keen expectation the results of the Russian Elections.  As happens with all elections when observed from far away, save for the incumbent and maybe one or two other names, the rest are often a bewildering series of unknowns and the local issues are also mostly unfamiliar to us.

I am not Russian.  I do not live in Russia.  I do not speak Russian (unfortunately!).  And I must even confess that I have a patchy knowledge about Russia.

But I can tell you this: as a geopolitical analyst I know that Russia is crucially important to Mankind at the crossroads we find ourselves in these very dark times.

Politics are never a black or white, good-guy-versus-bad-guy affair (sorry, Hollywood… sorry, White House…).  In Politics, “truth” always lies in some often subtle shade of grey.  What political opponents normally fight, argue and bicker about, is what is that “correct” shade of grey.  Of course, they never reach any agreement.  Why?  Because there is no “correct” shade of grey.  It’s like beauty: always in the eyes of the beholder.

In addition, just as the fundamental rationale of Economics – its bottom line or acid test, so to speak – lies in distinguishing between “profitable” and “not profitable” (and that is what will drive a final decision in the economic sphere); and just as the fundamental rationale of Morals lies in distinguishing between absolute Good and absolute Bad (which Ethics then picks up as Correct and Incorrect); so the fundamental rationale of Politics – its absolute “bottom line” – lies in distinguishing between Friend and Enemy.

Whilst neither the US nor the UK nor Europe are in anyway “the Enemy” of Mankind, the private Global Power Masters who have hijacked those nations and embedded themselves deep into their private and public power structures are.  They so fully control these countries’ economies, banks, finance, foreign policies, military, media and other aspects that, in practice, those Global Power Masters ARE the Enemy, and every time they rear their ugly heads through State Department/Pentagon or Foreign Office/NATO aggressions, attacks and invasions, then those public institutions of Government DO circumstantially become instruments of that Enemy.

Now when I say “Enemy”, English – as with most other modern languages – play us a bad pass.  In classical times, Latin had two very different words for “Enemy”: you had inimicus (i.e., your private personal enemy who is just your problem and should not escape the bounds of your private sphere; inimicus is where our modern word for enemy comes from); and then you had hostis (which is the Public Enemy of the community or nation: you need not necessarily dislike or hate him, but you must understand that his interests and objectives are contrary to those of your community and that conflict with him is inevitable; hostis is where our modern word for hostile comes from).

All of this being said, as a citizen of South America, in geopolitical terms Russia is a Friend and ally, not because Russia and Latin American necessarily have common interests in everything, but because we share a common Enemy (or should I say, hostis?): the Global Power Masters embedded deep inside the US, UK and EU.

Russia has shown incredible ability to mend past mistakes and seek new roads for its own good and, by extension, for the good of others.  There is almost no other country in the world that was able to undergo as major a trauma as the demise of the former Soviet Union the way Russia has done.

I say “almost” because there is one other country that seems to be resolving the transition away from Marxist Communism in a very efficient manner: China.  China introduced highly successful social and economic reform in its coastal areas and is slowly working its way into its hinterland, generations at a time!

Today, on the global Global Geopolitical Chessboard, Russia (and China) play so fundamental a role that, were it not for them, planet Earth would have already succumbed to the worst Orwellian-like Monster Regime run by private corporate-banking elites wielding mass psychological warfare against us all, hammering into our brains “War is Peace” and “Big Brother is watching you!”

This role has Russia variously acting like a Buffer, as a Brake and (potentially) as a Wall.

When Russia acts as a Buffer, we often feel frustrated.  Take Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Palestine for example, where Russia will take adversarial stances against the US/UK/EU/Israel, however in all those countries, the latter did get their way.  Even if they ended up shooting themselves in the foot as happened in Iraq and Southern Lebanon, the truth is that Russia (and China) basically made lots of statements and complaints but no real action happened.  No fleets were repositioned, no UN resolutions were vetoed.

When Russia acts as a Brake, we raise our eyebrows in renewed hope.  Take Syria and Iran, for example, where Russia openly vetoed US/UK sponsored UN Resolutions against Syria and refused to align behind IAEA pseudo-reports and sanctions against Iran over its nuclear program.  Here we start getting that “High Noon Showdown” feeling and start wondering whether there might not be a shootout.  The US, UK, France and Israel start getting really nervous and drag their feet in carrying out their threats.  Actually, they are forced to resort to more and more clandestine and criminal operations which serve to unmask the fact that those countries are basically run by mafias.

The final question today is what needs to happen for Russia to act as a solid Wall telling the Western Powers, “This is as far as you can go; this is as much as we will tolerate”.  If and when Russia finally does that, will the Western Powers stand down or will they try to run their bulldozers through the Russian Wall?

This is a key question, because it holds the answer to whether there will be a World War III or not.


Argentine advice for Greece: ‘Default Now!’

Publicado el 24-02-12 - en English

Here in Argentina, when we watch the terrible things that are happening today in Greece, we can only exclaim, “Hey!! That’s exactly what happened in Argentina in 2001 and 2002…!”

­A decade ago, Argentina too went through a systemic Sovereign Public Debt collapse resulting in social turmoil, worker hardship, rioting and street fights with the police.

Some months before Argentina exploded, then-President Fernando de la Rúa – forced to resign at the height of the 2001 crisis – had called back as finance minister the notorious pro-banker, Trilateral Commission member and Rockefeller/Soros/Rhodes protégé Domingo Cavallo.

Cavallo was the gruesome architect of Argentina’s political and economic capitulation to the US and UK when he was President Carlos Menem’s foreign minister and economy minister in the ’90s.  Menem and Cavallo are primarily responsible for Argentina’s signing of a formal Treaty of Capitulation with the UK/US after the 1982 Falklands War, opening up our economy to unrestricted privatization, deregulation and grossly excessive US Dollar-indebtedness, almost tripling our sovereign debt in a few short years (see my February 11, 2012 article British Laughter in the Falklands).

The Plan? Prepare Argentina for planned weakening, bankster take-over and collapse, so that a new weakening-takeover-collapse cycle could begin. In 2001, Cavallo was back to finish his work…

During that very hot summer in December 2001, true to its Latin temperament, Argentina even had four (yes, 4!) presidents in just one week. One of them, Adolfo Rodriguez Sáa who only lasted three days, at least did one thing right, even if he did it the wrong way: he declared Argentina’s default on its sovereign debt.

All hell broke loose! The international bankers and IMF did everything they could to break Argentina’s back; global media pundits predicted all kinds of impending catastrophes. Debt default meant Argentina would have to weather the pain and agony alone, being cast out by the “international financial community”.


‘You’re not the boss of me!’

But no matter how bad it got, it would always be better to do that without the bankers, without the IMF’s, European Central Bank’s, US Fed’s and US Treasury’s “help”. Better to sort out your mess on your own, than to have parasitic banker vultures carving out their pound of flesh from your nation’s decaying social and economic body.

And how bad did it get in 2002?   A 40 per cent drop in GDP; 30 per cent unemployment; 50 per cent of the population fell below the poverty line; dramatic, almost overnight, devaluation against the US Dollar from 1 peso per dollar to 4 pesos per dollar (then it tapered down to 3 pesos per dollar); if you had a US dollar Bank account, the government forced you to change it into pesos at the rate of 1.40 pesos per dollar.

What did Argentina’s government do wrong? In the months leading to collapse it bowed to all the bankers and IMF-mandated measures and “recipes”, which were actually the very cause of collapse: Argentina was loaned far more than it could pay back…. And the bankers knew it!   This was described in our December 19, 2011 article, Argentina: Tango Lessons.

Successive governments since then have continued to be functional to banker interests by rolling over debt 30 to 40 years, aggregating huge interest and in 2006 paying the full debt to the IMF – almost US$10 billion in full, cash and in US dollars (sole entity given most-favoured creditor status) getting nothing in return.


­Same vultures circling Greece

Today, Greece is confronted with a similarly tough decision. Either it keeps its sovereignty, or it capitulates to the “Vulture Troika” – the European Central Bank, European Commission and International Monetary Fund – who work for the Bankers, not the People.   Not surprisingly, today we find that Greece too has a Trilateral Commission Rockefeller/Rothschild man at the helm: Lucas Papademos who is doing the same things Argentina did in 2001/2.   Argentina not only suffered Cavallo, but President De la Rúa himself was co-founder of the local Global Power Masters lobby, CARI – Argentine International Relations Council – local branch of the New York-based Council on Foreign Relations, networking with the Trilateral Commission / Bilderberg mafia.

Greece today should do what Argentina did a decade ago: better to endure pain and hardship, and sort out the mess made by your politicians in connivance with international bankers on your own, wielding whatever shred of sovereignty you still have left than allowing the Banker Vultures sitting in Frankfurt, New York and London decide your future.


It’s the Neocolonial Private Power Domination Model, stupid!

Or do you think it’s just bad luck, bad judgment and coincidence that countries – Greece, Argentina, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Brazil, Mexico, Iceland, Ireland, Russia, Malaysia, Ukraine, Indonesia, South Korea, Thailand, France, even the US and UK – always borrow too much from the bankers and then “discover” that they cannot pay it back and that, symmetrically, the same bankers – CitiCorp, HSBC, Deutsche, Commerz, BNP, Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, JPMorganChase, BBVA lend too much to countries and then “discover” they cannot collect?

No! That is the very yellow-brick road that leads to the Emerald City of “debt restructuring”, “debt refinancing”, and “sovereign debt bond mega-swaps” that snowball sovereign debt, spreading it over 20, 40 or more years into the future. That guarantees unimaginably colossal interest profits for the Mega-Bankers and for all those nice politicians, media players, traders and brokers, without whom that would not be possible.

This is a Model. It must keep rolling and rolling and rolling… As this Monster Machine steams forwards, it completely tramples on, overruns, destroys, flattens and obliterates people, jobs, workers, health services, pensions, education, national security and just about everything human on its path. Run by parasitic usurer technocrats, it does not care what it destroys because it has no ethics; no Christian, Muslim or Buddhist morals. It only worships a greedy golden idol of money, money and more money. This is 21st-century Money Power Slavery at its worst.

Three generations of Argentines saw hopes dashed and dreams thwarted by this Monster Machine, suffering the hardship, woes and humiliations that come when countries give up sovereignty.


­Bring back the drach!

So, Greece: Just default on your “sovereign debt”! Just revert to the drachma! Just say “No, thanks!” to the German bankers and the Troika Vultures.

Please, Greece: just say “No!” to your Trilateral Commission president!

You will be setting a strong precedent for your European neighbours. Like Spain, which is hurting so badly right now for similar reasons. Like Italy, with its Trilateral Commission Prime Minister Mario Monti (also Trilateral’s European Chairman!).

Greece, the Cradle of Democracy, can teach the world a lesson in True Democracy by kicking these parasites out of their country, which will hopefully trigger kicking them out of Europe and one day, kicking them out of the global economy.

Because what Greece and Argentina and Italy and Spain suffer today is not True Democracy, but rather a distorted bastard imitation that systematically yields control to the Global Power Masters at the Trilateral Commission, Bilderberg and Mega-Banking Overworld. They run the whole “democracy show”, whereby all countries end up having “the best democracy that money can buy”… which is no democracy at all…

The Money Power juggernaut is steaming full speed towards us all. If Greece falls, who’ll be next?   Spain?   Italy?   Portugal?   Argentina (yet again!!!)?
So what if Greece’s reverting to the drachma marks the beginning of the end for the euro?  Let Italy revert to the lira, Spain to the peseta, Portugal to the escudo…! A National Currency is a key National Sovereignty factor.

All governments should understand that you either govern for the people and against the bankers; or you govern for the bankers and against the people.

The lessons of Libya: Chaos is no surprise

Publicado el 24-01-12 - en English

Throughout history, military attacks on sovereign nations have always meant death, destruction and chaos which don’t end once invasion is complete. Look at Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine, Vietnam, Northern Ireland – even World War II and the Cold War.
So why should Libya be any different?  Today, the Western media are “appalled” at the continued gunfights among warring factions; Reuters reports that “clashes between rival Libyan militias have killed two people and wounded 16, in the latest violence involving armed groups refusing to hand in their weapons.”
What did the West expect?  A sovereign country – Libya – was attacked and overrun by NATO forces, based on false pretexts supported by a hypocritical UN Resolution, that led to tens of thousands of Libyans being killed, maimed, their homes and infrastructure bombed; their country ransacked and thrown into utter chaos, its leaders and their children and grandchildren murdered on live TV causing US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to publicly roar with laughter…
It sounds a lot like the eight years of the Iraqi invasion where hideous violence reigns to this very day… Which sounds like Afghanistan… Which sounds like 60 years of daily life in Palestine… Which sounds like Serbia two decades ago…Which sounds like Vietnam four decades back…
Did the West blow it yet again!?!?   I don’t think so….
The boys and girls doing geopolitical planning at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), Trilateral Commission, American Enterprise Institute and AIPAC, have far too much experience to stumble over the same stone time and again.
Does that mean they destroyed Libya on purpose?  Of course they did!!!
The daily pictures we have been fed for almost a year of the hell Libya has become – and of the so-called “Arab Spring” with armed uprisings backed by the CIA, MI6, Mossad and NATO -are very eloquent.  These Western terror organizations’ “dirty tricks departments” have done a great job!
I mean, look at what they’re doing now in Iran, where they have no qualms about openly admitting that they are running through the streets of Tehran murdering scientists and civilians and bombing facilities and installations.
Can anybody provide a clearer example of state-sponsored terrorism than that? Openly admitted by its very perpetrators, Israel, the US and the UK??
No, no.  The destruction of Libya and other “Rogue States” has served and is serving as a key objective of the Global Power Elite.  For it carries a message to the whole world, eloquently warning and threatening every nation on Earth, saying “if we can do this to Libya; we can do this to any country we damn want to!”   “You’re either with us or against us” runs the 9/11 Baby Bush Doctrine…
Did you hear that, Venezuela? Did you hear that, Syria? You too, Ecuador, Nigeria, Pakistan, Bolivia….!!  Sure, the distance in time running from threat to action is inversely proportionate to how close the target “Rogue State” is to China and Russia…
In my 30th December 2011 article for RT, “2012: The Year of World Government,” (http://rt.com/news/world-government-conspiracy-therory-657/), I described 12 “triggers” the Global Power Elite embedded in the US, UK and European Union are using to impose global domination upon us all.  Trigger No. 10 specifically refers to “Attacks on Rogue States.”
You see, there are patterns if you know where to look.  For instance, Gaddafi’s Libya, Iran, Syria, Venezuela and many Muslim countries have Central Banks that are truly independent, but not of local government, as Harvard and CFR eggheads demand, but rather independent of the IMF, Goldman Sachs, CitiCorp and the Rothschild-Rockefeller parasitic usury-based global banking cabal.
Another pattern? Gaddafi was getting ready to introduce the Gold Dinar (a currency made of real gold and not just flimsy paper like the dollar and euro) to trade Libyan oil (Libya has the world’s ninth largest oil reserves, and the largest in Africa) and then – why not? – to trade African and Middle Eastern oil too… A direct attack on US dollar hegemony in the oil trade!
Saddam Hussein did something similar when he decided to use the $1 billion “oil for food” allowed to Iraq under UN sanctions to trade in euros rather than dollars. That was in November 2002; if I remember correctly, old Saddam ran into some trouble in March 2003…
Another pattern? Leaders in countries like Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Serbia have been shortsighted on key geopolitical issues, so when the heat is on them they invariably find themselves alone in the crossfire; they forge no strategic alliances and so are left high and dry.
Gaddafi did even worse: he spent the last dozen years before being murdered making amends with the US, UK, Italy; the EU.  That’s why the media is brimming with cute pictures of Gaddafi embracing Bush; Gaddafi embracing Tony Blair, Gaddafi and King Juan Carlos, Sarkozy, Rodriguez Zapatero, Cameron, Brown, Obama, Chirac… Why, we even have Gaddafi’s hand being kissed by Silvio Berlusconi!! (In September 2010: it’s on video…)
So: Nine Lessons from Libya:
1) Don’t trust the Western Powers; especially the US, UK, France, Italy and Israel….
2) Don’t hang onto power for too long. Especially when you can transfer it to an intelligent and articulate heir like Saif-Gaddafi.Dad should have done that at least five years ago…
3) Don’t trust the Western Powers…
4) Don’t be left alone. Get a good ally: Russia or China, for example.(Ask Iran, who understands this very well).
5) Don’t trust the Western Powers…
6) Be very wary of Western terror organizations, aka CIA, MI6, Mossad and their private brethren, Blackwater/Xe, Halliburton and others.
7) Don’t trust the Western Powers…
8) Don’t let the “Western Media” handle global news of what’s happening in your country. Russian, Chinese, Iranian, Latin American media outlets are growing to become of crucial importance.
9) Lastly, don’t trust the Western Powers!

2012: Year of the World Government

Publicado el 30-12-11 - en English

The Private Global Power Elite embedded in major governments is dead set on imposing World Government on us sooner rather than later. Let’s look at 12 mega-processes – veritable “Triggers” – that we infer they are using to achieve their goals.

­All roads lead to World Government.  This should come as no surprise.  London’s Financial Times openly articulated this view in an article by their chief foreign affairs commentator, Gideon Rachman, published on 8 December 2009, whose title said it all: “And Now for a World Government.” These goals are echoed by the Trilateral Commission, CFR and Bilderberg insiders – even by the Vatican.

Macro-managing planet Earth is no easy matter. It requires strategic and tactical planning by a vast think-tank network allied to major elite universities whereby armies of academics, operators, lobbyists, media players and government officers interface, all abundantly financed by the global corporate and banking superstructure.

They do this holistically, knowing that they operate on different stages moving at very different speeds:

  • Financial Triggers move at lightning speed thanks to electronic information technology that can make or break markets, currencies and entire countries in just hours or days;
  • Economic Triggers move slower: manufacturing cars, aircraft, food, clothes, building plants and houses takes months;
  • Political Triggers tied to the “democratic system” put politicians in power for several years;
  • Cultural Triggers require entire generations to implement; this is where PsyWar has reached unprecedented “heights”.

Risk-managing this whole process takes into account the many pitfalls and surprises in store.  So each plan in every field counts, with “Plan B’s” – even Plans “C” and “D” – which can be implemented if needed.

­Twelve Triggers for World Government

Today, the Global Power Elite are wrapping up globalization and ushering in World Government.  Paraphrasing the tightrope walker in German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche’s “Thus Spake Zarathustra,” this implies “….a dangerous crossing, a dangerous wayfaring, a dangerous looking-back, a dangerous trembling and halting…”

These 12 Triggers are interlinked and interlocked in a highly complex, holistic matrix, very flexible in its tactics but rigidly unbending in its strategic objectives. When read as a whole, the picture that unfolds shows that whole being far more than the sum of its parts.

1) Financial Meltdown. Since 2008, the Global Financial System continues on life-support. Ben Bernanke, Timothy Geithner and the US economic hit team – Robert Rubin, Larry Summers and Goldman Sachs, CitiGroup, JPMorganChase mega-bankers working with the Bank of England and the European Central Bank – have not and will not take any measures to help the populace and ailing economies.  They just funnel trillions to the banking elite, imposing the media myth that certain banks are “too big to fail” (Orwellian Newspeak for “too damn powerful to fail”). Why? Because it’s not governments overseeing, supervising and controlling Goldman Sachs, CitiCorp, HSBC, Deutsche Bank, JPMorganChase, but exactly the other way around…

2) Economic Crises.  Today, “Destructive Extreme Capitalism” is collapsing national and regional economies, reformatting them into international slave-labour Gulag-like entities that Joseph Stalin would envy.   Our woes lie not with the world’s real economy (mostly intact), but with the fake world of finance, banks, and speculation;

3) Social Upheavals.  Meltdowns in Greece, Ireland, Portugal, Iceland and – soon to come – Italy, Spain and others, trigger violent social uprisings, even in the US and UK;

4) Pandemics.  Get ready for more “flu surprises” leading to mandatory vaccinations: a discreet opportunity to slip RFID chips into our bodies and test “intelligent viruses” targeting specific DNA strains.  Racially and ethnically selective viruses as part of mass depopulation campaigns?

5) Global Warming. As the global economy sinks into zero growth mode, economic drivers shift from growth expansion to consumption contraction. Will coming “carbon credits” open the path to full societal control?

6) Terrorist “False Flag” Mega-Attacks. The Elite have this wildcard up their sleeve to jump-start new “crises” as short-cuts towards world government.  Will new “attacks” dwarfing 9/11 justify further global wars, invasions and genocide?  A nuclear weapon over a major city to be blamed on the Elite’s “enemies”?

7) Generalized War in the Middle East. As we speak, naval forces, bombers, entire armies are poised to attack and invade Syria, Iran…

8) Ecological/Environmental “Accidents”. The 1986 Chernobyl nuclear accident sparked the beginning of the end of the former USSR by showing the world and the Soviets themselves that their State could no longer manage their own nuclear facilities.  April 2010 saw the BP “Deepwater Horizon” oil rig eco-catastrophe in the Gulf of Mexico; since March 2011, Japan and the world have been grappling with a much larger nuclear accident in the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear complex.  Was foul play involved?

9) Assassination of a major political or religious figure to be blamed on an Elite enemy.  Mossad, CIA, MI6 are really good at playing this type of dirty trick;

10) Attacks on “Rogue States” – Iraq, Libya… Who’s next? Iran? Syria?  Venezuela?  North Korea?

11) Staged “Religious” Event. The growing need of the masses for meaning in their lives makes them easy victims of a Hollywood-staged, 3D virtual reality hologram show, orchestrating a “second coming”.  An electronically engineered “messianic figure” acting in sync with Elite global objectives?   Who would dare go against God himself?

12) Staged “Alien Contact.” This too may be in the works.  For decades, large sectors of world population have been programmed to believe in aliens.  Here too, hologram technology could stage a “space vehicle landing” – on the White House lawn, of course – highlighting the “need” for Mankind to have “unified representation” in the face of extraterrestrials.  Further justification for world government?
What do such interlocking “crises” have in common? Global warming, pandemics, “international terrorism”, financial collapse, economic depression, even alien contacts?  They all serve to show that they cannot be addressed by any single nation state, thus “justifying” the need for World Government.
2012: We must stay especially alert, understanding things the way they really are and not the way the global TV Masters want us to believe they are.

Argentina tango lessons: Europe’s turn for financial danse macabre?

Publicado el 21-12-11 - en English

Exactly ten years ago Argentina suffered a full-scale financial and governmental collapse. That was the end-result of over a decade of doing exactly what the IMF, international bankers, rating agencies and global “experts” told us to do.

Then President Fernando de la Rúa kept applying all IMF recipes to the very last minute, making us swallow their poisonous “remedies”.

It all began getting really ugly in early 2001 when De la Rúa could no longer service Argentina’s “sovereign debt” even after driving the country into full “deficit zero” mode, slashing public spending, jobs, health, education and key public services.

By March 2001, he had brought back Domingo Cavallo as finance minister, a post Cavallo had already held for six years in the nineties under then-President Carlos Menem, imposing outrageous IMF deregulation and privatization policies that weakened the state and led straight to the 2001 collapse.

Well, it wasn’t really De la Rúa who brought back Cavallo but rather David Rockefeller (JPMorgan Chase) and William Rhodes (CitiCorp), who personally came to Buenos Aires to tell/order President De la Rúa to name Cavallo… or else!

So, by June 2001, Cavallo – a Trilateral Commission member and Soros-Rockefeller-Rhodes protégé – tried to allay a default by engineering a new sovereign debt bond mega-swap which increased public debt by $51 billion, but did not avert total collapse that December.

What then? De la Rúa and Cavallo protected the bankers, avoiding a massive run on all banks by freezing all bank deposits. “Corralito” they called it – “the crib” – whereby account holders could only withdraw 250 pesos per week (at the time, equivalent to $250; after the 2002 devaluation, equal to $75).

Argentina’s economy all but collapsed; people took to the streets banging pots and pans, screaming and yelling, calling all bankers ‘thieves, criminals, crooks, swindlers and robbers’ but… the big mega-bank bronze gates all remained tightly shut. No one got their money back.

Half of bank deposits were in dollars. Again, no one got their dollars back, but just as pesos at a fraudulent rate of exchange after devaluation had been imposed and Argentina’s so-called “convertibility” Currency Board that Cavallo had imposed a decade earlier pegging the peso to the dollar at an unrealisticone-to-one parity, was dropped.

Clearly,this was a massive banker-orchestrated, government-backed robbery of the assets and savings of 40 million Argentinians.Half our population quickly fell below the poverty line, GDP contracted by almost 40% in 2002, millions lost their jobs, their savings, their homes to foreclosures, their livelihoods and yet… not one single bank folded or collapsed!

Amid rioting in Buenos Aires and major cities and brutal police repression that left 30 dead on the streets, De la Rúa boarded his helicopter on the rooftop of the “Casa Rosada” presidential palace and abandoned ship. That last week of December 2001, four presidents successively went by until finally the bankers, the media, and the US State and Treasury Departments accepted Eduardo Duhalde as provisional president. He finally named finance minister Roberto Lavagna, a founding member of the local CARI, the Argentine Council on Foreign Relations, which is the local New York CFR branch.

Argentina was used as a testing ground by the global power elite to learn how a full-scale financial, monetary, banking and economic collapse can be controlled and its social consequences suitably engineered to ensure that, with time: (a) the bankers came out unharmed, (b) “democratic order” is re-instated and the new government imposes another sovereign debt mega-swap, balance their numbers, and calm the people down (or else!), and (c) put big smiles back on bankster faces…Business as usual!

The lessons learned in Argentina in 2001/3 are today being used in Greece, Ireland, Spain, Italy, Iceland, the UK and the US.

So, “Occupy Wall Street” demonstrators, lend me your ears! You haven’t got a chance! The global money masters already made their financial war game exercise in Argentina.

At one point it got so bad that New York Times journalist Larry Rohter (later alleged by the Brazilian government to have ties with the CIA) had the gall to suggest the territorial break-up of Argentina to “solve” our debt crisis. The title of his perverse article, published on 27 August 2002, said it all: “Some in Argentina see secession as the answer to economic peril”, specifically targeting our natural resources-rich Patagonian region…

Then, the global power elite finally got their man when Néstor Kirchner became president in May 2003. Kirchner retained the finance minister, Lavagna, engineered yet another sovereign debt mega-swap running 42 years into the future (!); he paid the IMF the full amount they claimed of $10 billion (in cash, in dollars and with no deductions; i.e. absolutely most-favored creditor status!) getting nothing in return; he further weakened Argentina’s military, dumbed-down education, media and culture, and ended up imposing his wife Cristina as successor.

Clearly, lots of lessons were learned from the “Argentine experience,” which come in so handy when dealing with those rowdy, poorer Europeans today.

So, one decade on…. anyone for a tango?

George Orwell’s guide to the news

Publicado el 01-12-11 - en English

The Western mainstream media falsifies the news resorting to euphemisms, half-truths and lies in the best (worst) style of George Orwell’s novel 1984. We all live in the unreal world of “Newspeak” used by the Global Power Elite to control our minds.

Man gets confused when things that happen around him and to him, or which are done in his name, cannot be properly grasped, understood or made sense of. Normally, such confusion leads to inaction. If you’re lost at night in the middle of a forest but you can still see the stars, then a bit of astronomical knowledge will at least quickly tell you which way is north. But if it’s cloudy or you’re ignorant of the constellations in starry heaven, then you might as well light up a fire and do nothing until dawn…. You’re Lost!

Today, mainstream media coverage uses programmed distortion, confusion, even outright lying when its Money Power masters order it to support the “official story” on any major political, economic or financial process. When looked at closely, however, the “official story” of things can be seen to be inaccurate, misleading, often hardly believable if not downright stupid.

Examples of this: Iraq’s inexistent WMD’s leading to the invasion and destruction of that country; global mega-banker bail-outs with taxpayer money; irrational US diplomatic, military, financial and ideological alignment to Israeli objectives; “we-killed-Osama-Bin-Laden-and-dumped-his-body-into-the-sea”; and the wide array of “whodunits” surrounding 9/11 in New York and Washington, 7/7 in London, the AMIA/Israeli Embassy attacks in Buenos Aires in 1992/1994, and – of course – that all time favorite: who shot JFK…?

These are but a few of the paradigmatic cases that have at least served to trigger millions of people to wake up and think with their own minds instead of the mainstream media’s! But unfortunately the vast majority of such cases are not so clear-cut. The vast majority of Newspeak lies are like knots, difficult to untie as they carry built-in complexity resembling Gordian Knots. And, as with all Gordian Knots, you need to cut right through them, and this requires swift and precise action plus a good measure of intellectual courage.

To give an example of what we say, let’s take a quick look at how a “Newspeak” operation works. It requires sequential planning, it requires time, it requires proper logistics, it requires “credible” spokespeople in public and private sectors, it requires choosing the right words and images at the right time and in the right circumstances.

So, let’s say the Global Power Elite – working through the governments of the US, UK, EU into which they are deeply embedded, and joint-venturing with a wide array of media outlets, defense companies, oil companies, security and construction companies, and powerful lobbies – decide that they wish to overrun and destroy a specific country… Libya, for example…

How do they ensure that “the international community” will just quietly look on (except for the still relatively small minority of voices that are increasingly raising hell against them)?

The Seven Step Mainstream Media Country Destruction Guide

1. First, they start by targeting a country ripe for “Regime Change”, and brand it a “rogue state”; then…

2. They arm, train, finance local terrorist groups through CIA, MI6, Mossad, Al-Qaeda (a CIA operation), drug cartels (often CIA operations) and call them “freedom fighters”; then…

3. As mock UN Security Council Resolutions are staged that rain death and destruction upon millions of civilians, they call it “UN sanctions to protect civilians”; then…

4. They spread flagrant lies through their “newsrooms” and paid journalists, and call it “the international community’s concerns expressed by prestigious spokespeople and analysts…” then…

5. They bomb, invade and begin to control the target country and call it “liberation”; then…

6. As the target country falls fully under their control, they impose “the kind of democracy that we want to see” (as Hillary Clinton before visiting Egypt and Tunisia on March 10, 2011), until finally…

7. They steal appetizing oil, mineral and agricultural reserves handing them over to Global Power Elite corporations, and impose unnecessary private banking debt and call it “foreign investment and reconstruction.”

Their keynotes are: Force and Hypocrisy, which they have used time and again to destroy entire countries, always in the name of “freedom”, “democracy”, “peace” and “human rights”. Utmost force and violence is used to achieve their ends and goals.

Their Elders recommended this many decades ago in a blueprint for World Domination written on a hoary manuscript of old…

“What did you say…? That you don’t want to be ‘liberated’ and ‘democratized’?!?”

“Then, take this Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Hanoi, Berlin, Dresden, Baghdad, and Basra!! Take that Tokyo, Gaza, Lebanon, Kabul, Pakistan, Tripoli, Belgrade, Egypt, El Salvador and Grenada!! And take that, Panama, Argentina, Chile, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Somalia, Africa!!”

Always bombing people to smithereens… Always, of course, in the name of “freedom”, “democracy”, “peace” and “human rights”

Does the European Union have an Expiry Date?

Publicado el 20-11-11 - en English

A veritable re-engineering of the entire planet has been taking place in front of our eyes for many decades now. However, since it is gradual, most people do not notice or understand what is happening.

­Just like the proverbial frog that if thrown into boiling water painfully jumps out and survives, but will be cooked and die if thrown into lukewarm water where the heat rises one degree every 5 minutes…

What goes under the name of “New World Order”, “Globalization” or (my favourite) “World Government” describes the long-term objectives of a highly powerful Global Power Elite embedded inside every country, notably the US and Europe, that owns, operates and channels every country’s resources – oil, finance, economic strength, military prowess, natural resources – from inside to promote their supranational agenda.

This highly complex, holistic and extensively planned process helps explain much (if not all) of the on-going violence, chaos and injustice we see in the realms of finance, politics and the economy.  But good strategic planning also requires experimentation, trial and error, scenario building and war games.

My native country, Argentina (and Latin America as a whole), have been repeatedly used for such “experimentation”, as happened here ten years ago when the international banking cartel aligned to the IMF/World Bank, US Treasury Department, rating agencies and the “qualified” mainstream media, worked together to collapse Argentina’s financial and monetary system, but at the same time managed to save all their banks that operated in the country.

Argentines saw their money locked up in the banks, their Dollar deposits were arbitrarily changed into local devalued pesos at fraudulent rates of exchange as local Caretaker Governments (to this very day) take measures always aligned to local and international banker interests.

The results for Argentina?  GDP fell by 40% in 2002; 50% of our population fell below the poverty line (most never made it back up again); violence and death on our streets, foreclosures, bankruptcies, full-fledged social war (that stopped just short of civil war) and yet…. not one single bank folded!

If we fast-forward to Greece, Ireland, Italy, Spain, the US, UK, Portugal and Iceland today, we see the same scene over and over again.  Clearly, not mistakes made by specific governments, but a veritable model designed to control whole nations imposing unnecessary and fraudulent public debts.

One of the key lessons they learned in Argentina was how to control “We the People” through PsyWar (Psychological Warfare) exerted by the controlled media so that the population ends up accepting all the hardship, whilst the banker and government perpetrators get to keep all the money and stay in power.

I wonder whether the European Union might not be a similar experiment but on a much vaster and grander scale?  An experiment on how to bring very different countries with different languages, legal systems, cultures, histories of war and hatred amongst them, all under a straight-jacket of bureaucratic union that increasingly sweeps away national sovereignties?   A sort of “How To” on promoting voluntary submission by the EU’s 27 member states to accept one legal bureaucracy, one parliament, one unelected president, one military force, one flag, and one currency…

What lessons are Globalists learning from the troubles of the EU?  Are today’s growing Euro-woes a reflection of the fact that, after more than half a century of Euro-building we now see the controlled demolition of the EU in order to (re)build it into something new? Perhaps, “moulding it into something closer to their heart’s desire”, as the old 19th Century British Fabian Society urging gradual socialist world government once envisioned?

Is the EU an intermediate stage on the “Hard Road to World Government” suggested by Council on Foreign Relations member Richard Gardner in a seminal April 1974 article in “Foreign Affairs”?  A stage in which legal, political, trade, financial, social, cultural, media, monetary, military and so many, many other complexities have been iron-out, re-designed and re-tooled to serve a “greater purpose”?

Will we soon see the break-up of the Euro, not as an unfortunate “accident” but as a planned mega-process which (together with the hyper-inflated US Dollar) will be allowed to tailspin into a controlled collapse only to be replaced by a new global currency issued and managed by Global Power Elite private interests from a coming world central bank of some sort?  Does the EU have an Expiry Date?

The Vatican, always well informed, seems to think so as we see from their recent call for revamped global institutions; a sure sign that the old men who walk the Vatican Corridors are again reserving their place under the coming sun…

The controlled collapse of the Euro (through its break-up) and of the US Dollar (through inflation) coupled with a suitably engineered version of the “Arab Spring” for Europe, the US and others, that further erodes national sovereignties on a planetary scale, fuelled by controlled sequential wars and supported by increasing PsyWar emanating from the Western media monopolies…

All just one big mistake or merely different views of the same planetary Leviathan bent on imposing World Government on us all?

Socializing losses: Trilateral takeover of Europe?

Publicado el 14-11-11 - en English

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Please read below this short article I wrote for the (RT) Russia Today website.

It contains key information to help understand what is happening in Europe and what lies ahead.

Here’s the link: http://rt.com/news/europe-debt-crisis-takeover-215/

Best regards,

Adrian Salbuchi

The sovereign debt crisis tightening its grip on Europe has claimed the scalps of two prime ministers – those of Greece and Italy. Looking at the men poised to replace them, one cannot but ask – is this another turn of the screw for ordinary people?

Greece and Italy hold huge swathes of public debt they are unable to service unless they get massive European Central Bank and International Monetary Fund support, as a prelude to refinancing by international banks.

Greece has already replaced its prime minister after he dared to say he would put a further round of harsh austerity measures to a referendum vote. The country’s new PM is Lucas Papademos, former vice president of the ECB and of Greece’s own Central Bank, and a member of David Rockefeller’s (JPMorgan Chase/Exxon) powerful Trilateral Commission.

As for Italy, the replacement for Silvio Berlusconi is the former European Commissioner Mario Monti, who happens to be European Chairman of the Trilateral Commission.

Whenever we hear of “sovereign debt crises” – whether in Mexico 1997, Brazil 1999, in my native Argentina in 2001/2, or today in Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Ireland and (soon to come) the UK, France, or the US – what it really means is that governments cannot collect enough tax revenues from their people to pay interest and capital on debt that is mostly in the hands of private banking institutions.

Cutting through the Orwellian Newspeak (*) of the media, this means that the people of Greece, Italy, and Argentina must pay for the mistakes of bankers and corrupt governments, suffering higher taxes, unemployment, lower wages and pensions, and a deterioration in public healthcare, education, and infrastructure.

So, whenever there is a public debt crisis, “We the People” must pay for it.

However, when in September 2008 a private debt crisis exploded due to the derivatives swindle which buried Lehman Brothers, Merrill Lynch, AIG and many other private institutions, the US and other governments came to the rescue of the bankers, providing bailouts for banks “too big to fail” (Newspeak for too powerful to fail). They saved the likes of CitiCorp, Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase, Goldman Sachs with…. taxpayers money (TARP), and by having the FED (hyper)inflate the US dollar (know in Newspeak as “Quantitative Easing I, II and III”), which means passing a huge chunk of the cost of those bailouts on to the Rest of the World using the US dollar as global currency.

So again, irrespective of whether debt collapses are public or private, it is always “We the People” who pay because, under the current system, all profits are privatized and all losses are socialized.

But let us go back to Messrs Monti and Papademos. They sit on the Trilateral Commission together with hundreds of corporate chairmen and CEOs such as Ana Botin (Bank Banesto/Santander, Spain), Peter Sutherland (Goldman Sachs/BP, UK), Michel David-Weill (Lazard Bank, France), Jurgen Fitschen (Deutsche Bank, Germany), Stephen Green (HSBC, UK), Nigel Higgins (Rothschild Group, UK), Lord Guthrie (N M Rothschild, UK), Klaus-Peter Müller (Commerzbank, Germany), Dieter Rampl (UniCredito, Italy), Otto Ruding (CitiCorp Europe), Lord Simon of Highbury (Morgan Stanley, UK), Emilio Ybarra (BBVA, Spain), Robert Kelly (Bank of NY Mellon) Lord Brittan (UBS, UK), Robert Zoellick (World Bank), plus Timothy Geithner, Henry Kissinger and many, many others…

In fact, the Trilateral Commission articulates with the powerful Council on Foreign Relations (New York), Chatham House (London) and many other think-tanks forming an intricate web of private global power-brokers bringing together key players in finance, industry, media, government, academia, intelligence and the military, who run today’s global system focusing on their interests, and clearly not on those of “We the People.”

No doubt Messrs Papademos and Monti (if the latter becomes Italy’s new prime minister) will do everything necessary to ensure Italy and Greece do not default on their debts – but rather that their peoples endure all the hardship, undergo all the pain, and make all the sacrifices so that major bankers sitting on the Trilateral can all get their money back. Those who should never have made loans to Greece and Italy (and Argentina and Portugal…) the way they did.

We are hearing drums of war against Iran once again coming from the US, the UK and Israel.

This could be the start of something much more serious that goes beyond Iran.
