As I have repeatedly pointed out to Richard, as also to Ellen Brown (see below) over the past year, hope is not what's missing, nor are solution-spaces lacking. We have a superfluity of both! It is the “HOW” to achieve any one of these monetary reforms that is genuinely in the interest of the peoples, and not the interest of the powerful usurious banksters merely disguised in the sloganeering of “banking reform”, which is the problem. And this problem is magnified a million fold today given the tortuous reality of the enormous impetus towards 'one-world' government, which to me, already appears to be fait accompli. After watching Richard Cook explain the mechanics of the economic crisis and his preferred solution, please read “Monetary Reform: Who will bell the cat?” for the real intractable problem definition for which Richard hasn't really outlined any solution! The same is true of Ellen Brown's proposal for monetary reform: “Response to Ellen Brown's 'How to Resolve the Credit Crisis' January 13, 2009”.
If platitudes were a sufficient solution, Jesus throwing out the money-changers from the Temple in Jerusalem would have ended all Money Trusts for good, as also the Ten Commandments brought by Prophet Moses have ended all wars for all times since there wouldn't have been any usurious bankers to profit from them!
Power only respects power, not platitudes. So show me that negotiating power first that can hold the jugular of the banksters, and then I will worry about which solution to pick! The wisdom from the Chinese fortune cookies while often making for excellent after-dinner conversation, also seem oddly apropos here, especially this one: “it is a bit too late to start digging a well after one is thirsty!” As was also noted in the Financial Terrorism Report of March 2009:
'It is not for nothing that many a superlative statesman has timelessly opined: the price of liberty is eternal vigilance. If you stay asleep all your life chasing your “American Dream”, you move not a muscle when others are being bombed to smithereens, you care not when others are being bonded through economic conscription, and finally, when your own house is on fire, you suddenly wake up to frantically look for water to douse it while the arsonists have already taken over all the fire brigades in town. Well, you know the efficacy of that. It is called fait accompli.'
Ellen Brown reports in her latest essay on Global Research, that the globalists' swift move towards issuing global currency under the aegis of their private global central banks is gaining rapid momentum. Echoing Carroll Quigley, she locates the apex of the bankers' control nexus at BIS – The Bank for International Settlements, http://bis.org. It's member central banks from different countries coordinated by BIS are listed here: http://www.bis.org/cbanks.htm - count them! BIS describes its purpose as: “The BIS is a forum for discussion, policy analysis and information-sharing among central banks and within the international financial and supervisory community.”
But the real purpose of BIS cannot be understood without comprehending the purpose of private central banking. BIS is merely the instrumentation arm, the mechanics by which governance is exuded. It still only implements the overarching policies which are composed elsewhere, not at BIS, but deployed through BIS as the central “information-sharing among central banks and within the international financial and supervisory community” just like they say on their website. In reality, imagine BIS to be another hierarchy above the Federal Reserve System. Both, like all the other European central banks, in reality, are run by “errand boys” for their masters. As Carroll Quigley had put it in 1966:
'It must not be felt that these heads of the world's chief central banks were themselves substantive powers in world finance. They were not. Rather, they were the technicians and agents of the dominant investment bankers of their own countries, who had raised them up and were perfectly capable of throwing them down. The substantive financial powers of the world were in the hands of these investment bankers (also called “international” or “merchant” bankers) who remained largely behind the scenes in their own unincorporated private banks. These formed a system of international cooperation and national dominance which was more private, more powerful, and more secret than that of their agents in the central banks. This dominance of investment bankers was based on their control over the flows of credit and investment funds in their own countries and throughout the world.' -- Carroll Quigley, Tragedy and Hope, 1966, Chapter 20, page 326
Eustace Mullins expanded upon that description in much more sanguinary terms in 1985:
' “The merchants of death”, as they were popularly known in those days, were never more than errand boys for their true masters, “the bankers of death”, or, as they were also known, “the Brotherhood of Death”.' -- Eustace Mullins, World Order, 1985, Chapter 1: 'The Rothschilds', page 35 of PDF
To make sure that Carroll Quigley and Eustace Mullins are not dismissed as mere academic or 'tin-hatted' conspiracy nuts, since few people read history or visit the library anymore for any serious reading as a pastime, it is worthwhile reproducing the following passage from President Woodrow Wilson's collection of campaign speeches from 1912. Just as he was about to become the President of the United States, was about to pass the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 by the end of his first year in office in the name of “banking reform”, and shortly thereafter was to embroil the United States in World War 1 after the sloganeering “he kept us out of the war” during the re-election campaign of 1916, Wilson's apparent academic idealism inadvertently betrayed the truth in the early days even though he was being deftly managed by the next tier of “errand boys” of “financial capitalism”, principally Edward Mandell House and Bernard Baruch:
'Since I have entered politics, I have chiefly had men's views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of somebody, are of afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breadth when they speak in condemnation of it.' -- The New Freedom, Woodrow Wilson, 1913, Chapter 1, pages 17-18
Therefore, Professor Carroll Quigley, mentor to President Bill Clinton and teacher to several generations of U.S. State Department's diplomatic corps, has gained empirical currency for his fleshing out Woodrow Wilson's skeletal narrative, as in the statements below. Although, Dr. Quigley too speaks with a forked tongue when he deems it necessary, and his voluminous A History of the World in Our Time must be parsed forensically rather than gospelly by continually putting his disclosures to the test of empiricism, as for instance was done by W. Cleon Skousen in his commentary on Tragedy and Hope.
'The powers of financial capitalism had (a) far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland; a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank, in the hands of men like Montagu Norman of the Bank of England, Benjamin Strong of the New York Federal Reserve Bank, Charles Rist of the Bank of France, and Hjalmar Schacht of the Reichsbank, sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world.' -- Carroll Quigley, Tragedy and Hope, 1966, Chapter 20, page 324
Thusly, in order to properly identify the “power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive” which sits atop all these national and global structures of “financial capitalism” – the occulted trillionaire international banksters who are never even listed in the Forbes' 'world's richest' listing year after year, in 2008 for instance, Steve Forbes pitched Warren Buffet, worth $62 billion, as the 'world's richest man' – one has to first acutely understand usurious private central banking and its enslaving impact today. How does it really control an entire nation (and the world) by merely controlling the issuance of its money and the expansion-contraction of its availability? How does a pompous statement like “Give me control of a nation's money supply, and I care not who makes its laws” really manifest itself in practice? That would lead to the question cui bono, and that would certainly explain why its godheads might prefer to stay out of the newsmedia limelight and who they are. Just looking at their immense wealth would then confirm it – a wealth so enormous that they could easily employ all the Forbes' billionaires to wash their dishes!
All that real knowledge about who runs the world is a tall order not filled by even an expensive IVY League education, never mind the 7 O Clock News and the history channels. You will also not learn of it from the so called dissent-space chiefs like Noam Chomsky and Howard Zinn. That's quite understandable because both consent and dissent are very skillfully manufactured in modernity. Project Humanbeingsfirst has done much due diligence in compiling the Monetary Reform Bibliography as a self-study aid. Even a modicum of effort in pursuing its references would answer the question to the reader's own rational satisfaction who really controls BIS and the many layers of glorified “errand boys” who so eagerly front as the “merchants of death” for the “powers of financial capitalism”. Also see 'The Rothschild Archive': http://rothschildarchive.org, and Project Humanbeingsfirst recent editorial Some Dare Call it Conspiracy! Are you among them? April 19, 2009 for more information.
Emancipating enslaved women 'for more freedom of movement' is most urgent!
Today, The Obama Deception is all pervasive, and the Obama team has even dropped the 'war on terror' rhetoric – as re-confirmed by the ongoing DRONE ATTACKS in Pakistan and Afghanistan, the Weapons of Choice in Fighting Qaeda to manufacture more “Barbarians at the gate”:
“The Day After – American Agenda for Pakistan” is so palpably visible that only fools and shills among the Westerners, and native-informants among the victims, will continue to bleat Alice's 'War On Terror' instead of getting the prime-movers behind the 'merchants of death' and their multitudes of death squads!
The latest 'Pakistani Negro' to echo the 'wmd in Iraq' equivalent mantra of 'existential threat in Pakistan' which poses a 'mortal threat' to the world' rehearsed only yesterday, April 23, 2009, by the new 'Queen' of 'Alice in Wonderland', the U.S. Secretary of State, is Dr. Ayesha Siddiqa. Writing in her column “Fighting the hordes” in just this morning's DAWN, Friday, April 24, 2009, the distinguished 'secular humanist' posited the following constrained formulation: “There are two important questions here: one, are the Taliban a temporary phenomenon and, two, does society have the capacity to fight them off?” And then proceeded to answer them: “Unfortunately, it seems that the Taliban might win due to the combined capacity shortcomings of the security apparatus, the government and society at large. ... We can fight this only if we muster the required will, develop a clear understanding of what lies ahead and then evolve a coherent implementation strategy.”
The darling of the West Dr. Ayesha Siddiqa whose book 'Military Inc.' I have diligently read (twice), pretends there is absolutely no “American Agenda for Pakistan”, never mind that there is even a 'Grand Chessboard – American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives'! So forget about ever exposing the accelerated impetus towards 'one-world' government which devilishly employs the fabricated 'war on terror' against the manufactured 'Islamofascists' as the key mobilizing pretext! The concept of 'manufactured enemies' is apparently alien to an expert with a Ph.D. in War Studies from King’s College, University of London, UK, and who served as the Director of Naval Research heading Pakistan Navy’s research wing (see Dr. Siddiqa's brilliant resume, also cached here)! Thus she joins the other darling of the West, 'secular humanist' Dr. Pervez Hoodbhoy who needs no introduction, in keeping really great company with Dr. Daniel Pipes – all pushing the common sacred-cow axiom of 'Islamism', that, it is “Not a Clash of Civilizations, It's a Clash between the Civilized World and Barbarians”! (Also see 'Recruiting Soldiers Against Radical Islam')
I hope I am mistaken about both Dr. Siddiqa and Dr. Hoodbhoy and that they are not merely the dialectical variation of the pathetic propagandist and failed academic Dr. Daniel Pipes, whom, I am sure, they would both happily denounce – and yet, they also retain his core-axiom of 'Islamism' intact. It is interesting to me how they are both welcomed in the West with open arms. Any narrative they pen gets published, almost anywhere. Dr. Pervez Hoodbhoy even has an article in the CFR's Foreign Affairs in December 2004 (also see his “Pakistan – The Threat From Within”, and contrast it to this plebeian's “Saving Pakistan from Synthetic 'Terror Central'”). Dr. Ayesha Siddiqa wrote her book through sponsorship by the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars and had it unveiled at CFR's sister organization in the UK, the RIIA, also called Chatham House (also see her “Between Military and Militants”). It is not possible that they do not know who and what these foundations so eager to support their work, represent.
I have to observe with great sadness that the prima facie evidence suggests that Dr. Siddiqa and Dr. Hoodbhoy, like all the rest of the two-bit Pakistani academics gracing the distinguished halls of the IVYs to the foundations along the Hudson and the Potomac, shill as much for empire as did Benazir Bhutto. The late Harvard-Oxford orator and two-time(ing) Prime Minister of Pakistan, woefully, in her speech at the CFR in New York on August 15, 2007, had anointed her beloved nation as “the very petri dish of international terrorism.” It truly pains me to suggest this of my two 'colleagues' with whom, delightedly I might add, I share some other points in common. I had supported Dr. Ayesha when her book launching was banned in Pakistan, had spoken to her once when I was in Pakistan, have given her my feedback on the egregious omissions in her otherwise stellar narrative on 'Milbus' wherein, she has outright absolved the role of the United States in aiding and abetting that very 'Milbus' ab initio to fabricate a servile client-state with a 'unity of command' available to them whenever they desire it for “imperial mobilization” (see Re-Imagining Pakistan's Defenses - Open Letter to a Pakistani General).
And Pervez Hoodbhoy is almost a friend (we blow hot and cold), and of course are co-alumnus with the same common mentor (Noam Chomsky), and share the same common critique of Pakistan's glorified Higher Education Commission and its wasteful spending of billions of borrowed rupees from the World Bank on absolute garbage (and I speak from first-hand knowledge of having read its six 'PC-1' while consulting at HEC briefly, see my letter to its chairman, Dr. Atta-ur-Rahman). Dr. Hoodbhoy's last word to me after my repeated entreaties to him to debate me: “you and I obviously remain at loggerheads on matters surreal. Nevertheless, I hope you will lend a hand in getting this printed to foster discussion on matters existential, of dire and immediate threat to our survival, whether it is the enemy you see, or the one I charge with monumental crimes against humanity. Do you wish to appear with me in a television debate on a channel of our choice? Between us, let's explore the space and rationally and accurately identify the pertinent and most 'highest order bit' enemy of mankind in order to begin doing something about it in efficacious self-defense. Thanks. Zahir”, was: “Zahir, Thanks for the offer. But life is short, and I am sure you have better things to do than spend time and energy on futile argumentation. Pervez”!
I truly don't get why these very learned and accomplished scholars should have joined the 'dark side' against their own peoples, to actually become vulgar propagandists for the same demonic hectoring hegemons who dared to “goosestep the Herrenvolk across international frontiers” (Robert Jackson, Nuremberg) leading to millions dead, and more to come! Yes – Hitler too, confident that he would never be called to account, had boasted in arrogance in Bavaria: “[I will] give a propagandist reason for starting the war [and don't] mind whether it was plausible or not. The victor will not be asked afterward whether he told the truth or not. In starting and waging a war it is not the right that matters, but victory.” (See William Shirer, Rise and Fall of the Third Reich).
I will humbly eat crow by the hat-full if I am mistaken, misled, and myself deceived – for as Socrates had famously admonished (in Edith Hamilton's rendition): “Agree with me if I seem to you to speak the truth; or, if not, withstand me might and main that I may not deceive you as well as myself in my desire, and like the bee leave my sting in you before I die. And now let us proceed.” And of course, he was proffered the Hemlock for his sins!
On the other side of the spectrum from the 'secular humanists', we have the many good and kindly peoples, drowning in a surfeit of faith from ear to ear, simply “waiting for Allah” thinking it is the “Last Days of Gog and Magog” that no mortals may withstand. For, it is argued before them, an “indestructible power” the almighty creator hath himself calculatingly fashioned to fulfill his own (murderous) prophesies in order to finally rain divine justice upon the Earth – right after he hath rained phosphorous bombs upon children, women, men, the elderly, and destroyed their innocent civilizations at the very hands of his own “indestructible” hectoring hegemons to bring all that planned divine justice to fruition! What an idiotic and cruel god whose imagination only extends from genesis to genocide in order to fashion creation. And while that is merely immanent, far more grotesque is the idiotic imbecilic mass of followers who malign their own Almighty Creator whom they daily aver to believe in, Who repeatedly describes Itself in the very Book Muslims hold most sacred as “the Beneficent, the Merciful”! How can both be true simultaneously – unless it is a Zeus like fickle-minded god who enjoys games of cruel self-indulgence at the expense of his creation? Therefore, the former must stand rejected by the sheer force of argument, unless some people choose to believe in Zeus for their spiritual ascendance!
Can learned people not think with some rational logic, even when they be spiritually inclined (the two are not mutually exclusive despite what the Renaissance philosophers would have one believe to Trojan horse 'secular humanism'), that any earthly devil couldn't wish for a better neutralization of possible impediments from the masses to its own “imperial mobilization” agendas?
Give people their opiate in their right hand, while enslaving them with the left! Give them what they believe is divinely ordained – the majority will remain occupied in their pious and pecuniary pursuits believing it is all the 'will' of their god(s)!
And more apropos to modernity, inculcate a trust in so called “experts” so that one may be convinced to suspend one's own commonsense and rational judgment. Witness the events of 911 where the catastrophic mode of failure of the tall buildings preclude all and sundry from even thinking that it could have been an “inside job”! Why? because the “experts” say 19 turbanless clean-shaved jihadis did it (See 911 A Fait Accompli – Pay Attention to Political Science! April 13, 2009)!
Woe be to them all who manufacture pretexts and justifications to not side with the truth, who lead people astray to make it appear that the helpless screaming victims is god's own work as destined which none may alter, who remain busy in pious interlocution in their mosques, churches, temples while cataclysmic 'Shock and Awe' is continually visited upon innocent civilian populations. There is none on planet earth who can claim they haven't witnessed the preying of the vultures and vampires for which, surely, the Creator too must curse its own creation for their apathy despite plentiful guidance to every peoples! What will thee, Oh people of the cloth, take to thine grave – a barrel full of gold and a ledger full of piety while God's creation was burned and starved at the hands of the hectoring hegemons right before thy twirling rosaries? Many an atheist show far greater moral acumen and disquiet in their actions when they genuinely rush to the aid of suffering humanity – for indeed, a moral compass appears to be built into us human beings, we who can reason, and we who can reflect, all killed by the eschatological gibberish fashioned by priests shilling for the enemies of mankind! While the misanthropes remain busy building corrupting institutions and instruments of co-option to create 'one-world' government, the sheeples are kept busy chasing absurdities.
At the intersection of political science and religion, whereby the latter is used in the most sophisticated and devilish of ways to server the former, such as to both subvert and incapacitate political activism in its most efficacious dimension while simultaneously promulgating “imperial mobilization” by fashioning the perpetual enemy of “Islamofascism”, or to devilishly fashion 'freedom fighters' with “god is on your side”, or to return the Jews to Zion by killing off god and selling the 'ubermensch' concept of the Jewish peoples themselves being their own Messiah (see Letter to Editor: Dalit Voice's 'Which god?' February 08, 2009), 'religion' is today as much a part of the Machiavellian instrument of hegemony, as it was in antiquity when the rather banal 'divine sanction' was invoked for imperial legitimacy! Muslims today, being among the most intellectually challenged peoples on the face of the earth, are even encouraged to once again dream of 'khilafat', as that strain conveniently adds to the phobia of the “Triumphalism of Islam” (see Bernard Lewis, Crisis of Islam – Holy War and Unholy Terror, 2001).
Between the opiate of the ethereal 'Soma' and the fatigue of the treadmill of the 'American Dream', the plebeians are led to the slaughter – all throughout the ages, since time immemorial. Latter day modernity is no different, only more Machiavellian! With a deception so technetronic, and mind manipulation so ubiquitous, that it should not surprise anyone if they see their god's names spelled in the sky and 'Jesus' descend on the 'wings of angels' at the respective GPS coordinates of each peoples' holy predictions! Coming soon to the pious neighborhoods of the (Abrahamic) world. Thousands of visitors have been nightly entertained in Disneyland by holographic image projection's progressive development for at least two decades, and it must surely be ready by now for introducing new convoluted twists to “imperial mobilization”!
And Pakistan is next! A “Kosovo” is being orchestrated in Pakistan and matters have maddeningly been brought right on the verge of fait accompli. All for the meager want of a handful of courageous men and women of national prominence to simply have called 'a spade a spade'! Unlike Palestine, Pakistan was destroyed, first and foremost, by her own treasonous mercenary peoples! The United States to follow suit, for the exact same reason!
