View Full Version : Are Banks Waging Economic Warfare On The World?

I think everybody who is truly concerned about the state of affairs will want to read these two articles. Read them in their entirety as well as all the links.

The Big Banks Are Waging Warfare Against the People of the World (http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2011/07/big-banks-are-waging-warfare-against.html)


If you ever read the book "Tragedy and Hope" by Carroll Quigley which talked about the Council on Foreign Relations and the Royal Institute of International Affairs (aka Chatham House), it mentioned their intention to establish a feudalistic system of banks.


America is Being Raped Just Like Greece (http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2011/06/america-is-being-raped-just-like-greece.html)

Preface: The war between liberals and conservatives is a false divide-and-conquer dog-and-pony show created by the powers that be to keep the American people divided and distracted. See this (http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2010/09/poll-after-poll-shows-that-both.html), this (http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2009/04/dont-fall-for-old-divide-and-conquer.html), this (http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2008/11/neocons-and-neoliberals-two-masks-one.html), this (http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2009/03/conservative-and-liberal.html), this (http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2009/03/useful-idiots-on-left-and-right.html), this (http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2009/11/senator-dorgan-we-essentially-have-had.html), this (http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2009/08/state-of-civil-disobedience-on-left-and.html), this (http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2010/12/forget-keynesians-versus-deficit-hawks.html), this (http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2009/08/real-war-is-not-between-left-and-right.html) and this (http://www.ritholtz.com/blog/2010/09/you-vs-corporations/). So before assuming that privatization is a good thing, read on.

If these resources had always been in the private sector, that would be fine ... that would be free market capitalism.

But if they were purchased on the people's dime with our taxpayer funds and then sold to the big boys for cheap, that's not capitalism ... that's looting.

I've been wondering about the interest rates charged on borrowings against national debt. In some cases it appears punitive.

Who is it that's charging high rates that contribute to the cycle of financial woes.

Are Banks Waging Economic Warfare On The World?

Yes, and the sky is falling.

and the sky is falling

The markets certainly seem to be!

This should help in the explanation.

Yes, and have been for a few decades.

That isn't news.

How can you fight them?

It's sorta tough, as the banks, taken as a whole, have cornered the market on money flow.

What you can do is undertake a variety of activity on a barter basis to reduce their influence somewhat in your own life.

That doesn't change the system (the game is rigged, and that ought not be news to you either) but it allows you a bit of relief.

The markets certainly seem to be!

They are, and this is deliberate.

When you consider the results are that countries are selling off their assets to the private sector and the banks, you effectively have the banks and private sector owning countries. That is something to be greatly feared.

Actually, you'd be surprised how few are aware of the extent of this.

I have no idea, but I'll tell you this -- doing nothing will only result in them continuing along their course; doing something violent will result in massive crackdowns

Greece being raped ? It's more like turning up at the pox doctor and being diagnosed with chronic self-abuse. And that's after being caught en flagrante with a goat...... and not a particularly attractive one.

Borrowing money till you've spent to the limit and then blaming those who lent you the money is an old government trick. Always easy to blame the money lenders and confiscate/fine/tax them as if it was their fault.

Oldest trick in the book..... (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edict_of_Expulsion) :hmm::hmm:

One must always follow the Golden Rule. Those with the Gold, Rule. Politicians who thought they were all-powerful, and could do what they like, have alway been brought up short with a jerk, when the bankers and financiers pulled the chain tight.

Everything that people in power want to do, has to be financed. A politician puts forward a proposal, and the money mogul tugs his coat-tails and says... "Where ya gonna get the money, if we don't agree with what you're proposing?" :rolleyes:

Debt is a form of slavery. Excessive debt that the lender is struggling to repay is almost certainly serfdom. However, the finance houses and money moguls are expert at making sure that people/Govts/countries stay in debt... forever.

What is the solution? Hitler railed at the Jewish bankers and reneged on debt repayment. He only had two choices then... go to war, or try and survive without funding.
The war choice looked good to him in 1933... but history proves he wasn't the sharpest pencil in the box when it came to waging war cleverly, and winning.

The next war will be against the bankers and financiers by the people. However, I'm not sure that the bankers and financiers won't create some type of diversion to take the heat off themselves.
After all, no-one's going to bother with a grass fire, when there's a massive firestorm on the horizon, coming from a different direction.

A nuclear conflagration is an ideal diversion to take the heat off the bankers. Preferably in the Middle East. A perfect spot for a firestorm. "Now, just how much did you say you needed, Mr Ahmadinejad??" :E

Question is, if you were offered a well paid job (complete with annual bonus) by a bank, would you take it? I know most of us would, conveniently putting our principles to one side.

A lot of this banker-bashing is driven by jealousy, pure and simple.

18th Aug 2011, 14:48
Well yes I admit it I am jealous. If my decisions cost the company I work for to make multi million pound losses I would be sacked for gross incompetence. So I am jealous of the fact that not only did these people not get sacked they also received a large bonus for not losing quite so much money the year after.

have to agree with that Basil, as a business they are and have been taking advantage of relaxed regulations (which were put in place to prevent them running amok) in order to achieve maximum return and profits for their shareholders.

waging economic warfare? no. taking advantage of relaxed regulations for their own business purposes, yes.

Its not about waging economic warfare on the world and world domination, so everyone put the tinfoil hats and peanut butter away, its about p*sspoor regulation and political interference.

Rather than blame the banks, which are doing what businesses should do, provide profitable dividends for the shareholders, and if they can privatise profit and divest the risk to the taxpayer, then even better for the shareholders, we should look at the political influences that relaxed the regulations. that is where the blame lies.

18th Aug 2011, 15:03
SG - Wanna have a guess at where the "political influence" came from that relaxed the financial regulations?? No!... it couldn't possibly have been bankers and financiers, who bankrolled the politicians?! :rolleyes:

18th Aug 2011, 15:17
fair point onetrack,

however politicians are elected and paid by the taxpayer/electorate to represent their best interests, not the best interests of a third party with the taxpayer picking up the cost and risk.
