Ya ever heard that old saying, “Ya catch more flies with honey than with vinegar”?
Ah good, because DC and “the City” sure haven’t!
As many here know, the East has been trying to formulate its banking alternatives for its member states these past several years. This is of monumental importance to Eurasian alliances, because without a network of lending institutions of their own, they’ve often been at the (lack of) mercy of the Western banking powers. For several years now, Eastern alliances such as the BRICS, have made a great deal of progress on this front.
That progress has been met with fear and loathing from DC and London, as previously, they’ve enjoyed the perks from being the world’s predatory lender through institutions like the World Bank and IMF.
During the last week however, while many of us weren’t looking, some very interesting developments have been taking place on the “grand chessboard”!
In times past, especially since the previous “Cold-War”, DC’s full-spectrum control of the geopolitical arena has been almost absolute. Since they and London had owned “all the gold”(on paper, at least), and had the lending institutions(the IMF, World Bank) to pile debt atop it, as well as the largest, deep-state apparatus, and military-industrial industries to depend on, they’ve basically used a very short list of “strategies” to bring other peoples and nations “to heel”.
In fact, previously if any national leader told DC “no!” to things like “opening up trade” or dealing with the IMF, they were usually all told:
DC: “Heeeey, that’s ok! You don’t have to say yes or anything like that!”
Anyone else:“We don’t?”
DC:“Noo sirree, but just know, between us, you’ll have to pick from a litany of other options!”
Anyone Else:” Other options, like what?”
DC:“Oh, swell things! Like”:
Internet Spying and Sabotage!
Obliteration of your Currency!
Or violent overthrow!
DC:“The last one’s our personal favorite! So, which will it be?”
Anyone Else:“Uh, where do we sign?”
Banking Monopoly is Over
That’s all changing, and changing quickly, as the Eastern Alliance has been fast-tracking several financial and lending competitors to DC’s money mafia. Things like the BRICS Bank, which now carries over $100 billion in assets to help shield its members from financial/currency crisis(which they’ll likely have to use soon), have made enormous headway. Now though, you can add to the list of worries for the ruling order, the fledgling Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank(AIIB).
The AIIB is the newest kid on the block, having only been established in October of 2013. Yet remarkably, within the first year, it has basically sewn up most of the far East in its roster already. By the end of 2014, over 2 dozen Asian nations had signed onto its establishment, including:
India, Malaysia, New Zealand, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Thailand, etc! We’re talking some big names here!
At first, DC and London responded to the AIIB, as it did the BRICS Bank: with smarmy scorn. As time passed, however, and the powers that be began to see that the bank has gained serious traction, they switched tactics, from ridicule to threats. Obama and Cameron started applying tremendous pressure on their strongest “allies” to remain uninvolved with China’s alternative lending facility to the US’s Asian Development Bank.
Why wouldn’t they? After all, the real power of the US and UK has always been a money power. Without that banking and fiscal dominance and monopoly, and the ability to pyramid new debts upon the backs of humanity, their empire would come crashing down, double quick.
That’s precisely why this newest show-stopping announcement by UK officials must’ve come as complete shocker to the buzzards on the Potomac!
Yeeeep! So much for the “special relationship” between the Rothschild and Rockefeller dynasties! It just goes to show that when it’s all on the line, and it’s down to survival(and any semblance of any relevance whatsoever), they’re all just scorpions in a bottle, waiting to turn on one another.
Just listen to George Osborn explain the rational behind the decision:
“I am delighted to announce today that the UK will be the first major Western country to become a prospective founder member of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, which has already received significant support in the region…
This government has actively promoted closer political and economic engagement with the Asia-Pacific region and forging links between the UK and Asian economies to give our companies the best opportunity to work and invest in the world’s fastest growing markets is a key part of our long term economic plan.”
Sooooo, the UK was the first non-regional country to become a founding member in the AIIB? Comical!
Banksters in London, staring down the barrel of their own irrelevance, have decided to jump in, and save what little influence they still can. They know this process is forging ahead, with or without them, and thusly, they’ve scrambled to jump on board to become a “founder” before the deadline at the end of March 2015.
As you can imagine, this is not a very popular decision on Capitol Hill, with the Obama administration accusing Britain of “constant accommodation to China.” This is certainly a riot coming from the original nation who gave China “most favored nation” status in the first place! As with everything else, the “exceptional nation”, claims to be the only one who can do such things.
That’s not all though! DC says they can’t support the AIIB, because they’re “concerned” that the AIIB wouldn’t have “high standards of governance”, and that it would lack “social or environmental safeguards”!
This, of course, is coming from one of the world’s premiere violators of every imaginable human right you could think of! The only reason DC hates the AIIB is that they don’t control it! Period!
If their “special partner”, the UK, joining the AIIB wasn’t enough though, they were in for another shocker! As just yesterday France, Germany and Italy have all jumped in headfirst as well! That’s right, in one day half the G-7 confirmed their intent to “switch sides”, without consulting their DC overlords first!
But wait! Just when you thought DC couldn’t possibly look any more embarrassed and jaded….
Australia decides that it, too, would simply love to be a “founding member” of the AIIB!
With the re-positioning of the geopolitical board happening at literal lightning speed(we’re talking days, not weeks or months), DC has come out swinging:
Headlines like that show just how deluded the leadership in DC has grown. With literally 2/3 of Europe’s economy having signed on in a week, things are looking dire for the US hegemon. It has gotten so bad, that DC decided to bring out “the big guns”….
Yes, “tough guy” Secretary of Treasury Jack Lew has now publicly come out, and has cautioned DC lawmakers(read, the world at large), stating:
“I hope before the final commitments are made anyone who lends their name to this organization will make sure that the governance is appropriate!”
I’ve honestly never seen such a rapid re-positioning of the “chess board” concerning something this serious. I mean, geez, at this rate, your grandmother and local dog-catcher should also be founding members of the AIIB within a fortnight!
For far too long, the banksters in DC abused their privilege of being the world’s lender and superpower. They’ve treated the international community as just an extension of itself, just a 2nd-rate satrap of its imperium. Many nations, including China, who came to the IMF years ago, asking to be part of it(and were told no), are now turning the table, by creating their own mechanisms and institutions. Now the world is begging them to join their banks instead.
In the past 10 years, the BRICS, led by Presidents Putin and Chinese Premieres, have moved to edge out the Western banks in the many areas in which they had leverage. From putting the kibosh on the petro-dollar arrangement, to sucking out as much gold tonnage as possible from the Banking Dragon in the City, to securing their own lines of credit and finance, to establishing their own credit rating agencies, to even building their own alternate, worldwide internet cables…..Russia and China’s “full speed ahead” approach continues to cause serious fits for neo-cons and banksters in the West.
Plutocrats who were counting on Putin being “their man” in Russia, when he was first elected, have been bitten seriously in the tail end. The efforts and preparations being made to replace the loathed system of the Anglo-American banks, are in the advanced stages. The old days of DC & London having all the leverage and all the power(by having all the gold) are gone. London has only now started to realize it, but DC, stuck in the ‘glory days’ of being the world’s unipolar, busybody, still believes it is the only game in town.
It is not!
Remember back in 2014, when the G-7 kicked Russia out of the G-8, and thought themselves mighty clever? Now, just one year later, 4 out of of those 7 countries are tripping over themselves to join this Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank! Brilliant! You sure showed them, G-7!
From the backfire of trying to use the SWIFT system as a political and economic weapon against Russia, to the failure to stop the UK, France, Germany, Italy, and now Australia from joining the China-led AIIB, the “old guard” in DC isn’t having a good year!
There’s a new era coming, a new and better day coming on the other side of all this US Dollar-sponsored terror, and now that even hardcore, G-7 countries are desperate to get on board with the East, and “hedge their bets”, expect this trickle to become a cascade, and then a veritable waterfall, pouring into a river of nations: all running from the nightmare of worldwide, US-Dollar-sponsored terror!
Lastly, I wanna ask our community this:
If this soaring US dollar is a current sign of unbeatable strength, and evidence that the US is truly the strongest and best nation to lead the world in the years ahead….
Why has half the Western world literally abandoned them in the last 72 hours?
I think we all know why…
For decades, DC and London’s favorite, effective tactic was “divide and conquer”, and they used it most ruthlessly.
Ya know what the funny thing is though, about “divide and conquer”, DC?
