Where is World Heading?

world

by Katherine Frisk

 

Zoom out to the Moon, sit on the ridge of a crater and watch the world from a distance. Where is it heading?

Dynamic shifts are taking place. On the financial front, more and more countries are no longer using the dollar as the international reserve currency, they are doing direct trade in their own currencies and through commodities exchange. Coal for wheat, gas for gold.

Gold, the real stuff, is re-emerging as sound and solid money (not to be confused with GLD certificates which are basically an IOU for gold that does not exist.) Real gold is preferable in many instances to fiat money markets where he who owns the printing press can create as much wealth as they wish. Which was fine, so long as those particular pieces of paper were used for all international trade. But what happens when the music stops? What happens when the world at large returns to sound money, to real trade in goods and drops the fantasy?

The BIS, the World Bank, the IMF and Swift no longer have a corner or a controlling interest on the world’s economy. The criminality of the IMF was clearly exposed by John Perkins in “Confessions of an Economic Hitman.”

Further to this criminality of the corporate fascist banking system is the upcoming proposal of the TPP and TTIP agreements also see: TPP, $3.5 Trillion Stolen, Gold Price Rigging, Colour Revolutions and hanging out with BRICS. (http://theinternationalreporter.org/2015/06/19/tpp-3-5-trillion-stolen-gold-price-rigging-colour-revolutions-and-hanging-out-with-brics/)

As James Corbett in How the Banksters Play “Good Cop, Bad Cop.” explains:

“BIS was founded in 1930 as an outgrowth of Rockefeller Trustee Own D. Young’s so-called “Young Plan”; to chain German payments for the unpayable WWI reperations scam to a consortium of financiers led by J.P. Morgan. It is located in Basel, Switzerland but is above Swiss law by terms of a treaty that makes the bank “inviolable” and free from search, seizure or interference in any way by Swiss authorities. And it was identified as the apex of a global system of oligarchical control in a shockingly frank passage by Georgetown historian (and Clinton mentor) Carrol Quigley in “Tragedy and Hope”:

“The Power of financial capitalism (corporate fascism) had a far reaching plan, 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 feudalistic 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 system 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.”

This controlling interest is now being challenged by Russia and China setting up their own “Swift” systems; the AIIB bank which has been joined by most European as well as Eurasian countries totalling 50 nations in all with the exclusion of the USA and Japan; and the BRICS development bank, which incorporates the continent of South America with Brazil as a member, and Africa with the BRICS subsidiary bank in Johannesburg South Africa. As Andile Ntingi writes in Brics brings SA trading and banking wins

“The NDB will reduce dependence by Brics countries on Western-led global finance institutions, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), and offers an alternative funding source for developing economies.

Another attractiveness with Brics Bank is that it will not attach unfair conditions on its loans to the borrowers, unlike the World Bank and the IMF which forced developing countries to adopt the so-called structural adjustment policies as part of their loan packages.

These policies forced developing nations to follow a mixture of austerity measures, privatisation, and opening up their markets to foreign competition. More often than not, these policies had a devastating impact on the economies of poor countries.”

Trade in Oil is also undergoing dynamic shifts. F. William Engdahl points out in OPEC, Russia and the Emerging New World Order Emerging

“Now what is very likely to emerge in the current extraordinary situation is a negotiated arrangement between Putin’s Russia and the Saudi-led OPEC oil producers of the Middle East, including Iran, to devise a new ordering of world energy supply, one independent of the near century of Anglo-American domination. The benefits of such a new world ordering are simply too great for all involved parties to ignore.

As this new world ordering, including Saudi-led Arab OPEC states, Russia, China and all Eurasia becomes more likely by the day, Secretary John Kerry, CIA chief John Brennan, as well as incoming Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Marine Corps General Joseph Francis “Fighting Joe” Dunford, an outspoken Russophobe, along with the various neo-con Washington think-tanks, Defense Secretary and Democratic Party neo-con Ash (as in ashes of war) Carter, Susan Rice, war-mongering UN Ambassador Samantha Power, Vice President Joe Biden (possibly the next US President), the entire USA military industrial complex, the Wall Street money financing it, and families such as Rockefeller, Bush, Clinton, McCain, Gates, Buffett—all these poor unhappy people are beginning to feel suddenly naked, standing in the Arctic cold frozen waters without even a paddle or an ice-breaker to navigate.”

Both the control of the money markets and the oil industry is now out of the hands of the dollar and the petro dollar.

If you look at the front page of the Economist, with all the world leaders standing together, you will see exactly where the UK and Germany are going. Merkel is in lockstep with Putin. The UK has already moved east. All that gold moving from London to Shanghai is not only Chinese Gold. It is British Gold.

For all the anti colonialist British Empire rhetoric, the UK has had long historical ties with Hong Kong, Shanghai and India that go back to the 17th century, four hundred years of trade and commerce via shipping. India is also an English-speaking country, and has absorbed much of English literature and culture. Many Indian families who now live in Britain not only consider themselves as British but still have strong ties to their country of origin, both culturally and economically.

Europe in turn has had thousands of years of trade and commerce with the east overland. The Silk Road project will re-establish these ties resulting in cheaper costs through fast rail instead of expensive ports and boat yards. The plan is for fast rail going from Beijing to Lisbon.

The Berlin Wall really has come down, the east is no longer locked into a communist economic system and has developed into social democracies, with a balance between private enterprize and government owned and controlled industries whose profits are used for the benefit of their citizens in education, health transport and security.

With a growing middle class in the east and population figures in the billions, it is obvious where the next market growth and investment capital will flow. It is going to be an interesting century and by the end of it the world will look completely different to how it looks today.

In HISTORIC NEWS: Finally, EU Breaks Away from U.S, Germany’s shift East was clearly indicated:

“Horst Seehofer, a man who, prior to his being appointed to be the Party-chief had been Chancellor Merkel’s Agriculture Minister, has now turned against Chancellor Merkel (who until now was the most powerful leader in all of Europe) and denounced her policy on the refugee crisis, and has now stated publicly that Germany should instead ally with Russia and against NATO on the entire Syrian war.“

Many Germans who have business interests in Russia have resented the sanctions placed on that country, as does France. 2014 saw farmers across the continent either giving their produce away or dumping it on municipal buildings. As far as many Europeans are concerned, the sooner these sanctions are lifted the better.

While in the UK,  Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn was elected with huge mandate.  He expresses the sentiments of the majority of the United Kingdom who are tired of the wars in the Middle East, and want Britain to move out of the influence of American imperialism.

“During his three decades in parliament, Corbyn has spent much of his time championing causes such as the Stop the War coalition, campaigning against the private finance initiative and supporting peace efforts in the Middle East.

In the campaign, he promised to give Labour members a much greater say in the party’s policymaking process, in a move that could sideline MPs. His key proposals include renationalisation of the railways, apologising for Labour’s role in the Iraq war, quantitative easing to fund infrastructure, opposing austerity, controlling rents and creating a national education service.”

It is a great pity that the USA did not opt for co-operation with their Western neighbour Russia, and build a bridge to the east from their western shoreline. Instead they want to “own” Russia, in the same way Chevron and Monsanto  have bought out Ukraine, a shortsighted, egotistical and self-defeating policy that has its origins in Breziski’s Grand Chessboard. This was the political end game, a game which has clearly been check mated in the last five years by both Russia and China.

Another manifestation of world-wide opposition to the corporate fascist system, is the major backlash in both the east and the west against genetically modified seeds. Roundup, a costly herbicide that farmers are forced to use on GMO products has been deemed by the World Health Organization as carcinogenic contributing towards the increase in cancer rates worldwide.

An even greater backlash has erupted over the very concept of patenting food sources, from maize, vegetable and fruit products to genetic patenting on cattle, chickens and fish.

This is a corporate fascist model that threatens to take food security out of the hands of the public and put it into the hands of a few companies who will increase their market share, control food production and hold the world to ransom with ever-increasing prices at the grocery store. From farming as we know it, they have moved onto “patent” farming, and one day you could be sued for producing seeds and plants from your own produce and animal breeding because they own the patent.

The corporate fascist model of the West and the Octopus Squid (https://www.newscientist.com/article/mg21228354-500-revealed-the-capitalist-network-that-runs-the-world/) has not enamoured itself with the rest of the world, if anything it has met with a carefully planned and executed resistance and the establishment of a multi-polar world order with a Federal United Nations system supported by 75% of the countries of the world, as opposed to a uni-polar, one world, New World Order that George Bush Senior spoke openly about.

This NWO in the last five years has been executed through “colour revolutions (http://orientalreview.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/AK-Hybrid-Wars-updated.pdf)” and directed by institutions such as Project For the New American Century, the Brookings Institution and the Council on Foreign Relations. Basically buying the world and owning it through the neo-con, corporate fascist, Octopus Squid. (https://www.newscientist.com/article/mg21228354-500-revealed-the-capitalist-network-that-runs-the-world/)

Bottom line? The world has decided it is not for sale. The price is too high. Nations of the world are not a McDonald’s outlet or a Wall Mart outlet, they actually have ideals, customs and identities of their own. Nation Statehood, independence, language, culture and identity still have meaning as do family owned retail, small scale farming and small business development. Diversity is the name of the game, and uniting in that diversity is the challenge in the 21st centuy.

    A lot of people can not comprehend numbers such a a billion or trillion with respect to money and I think the best way to fathom these gargantuan numbers is using distance as a yard.

    Suppose U$ 1.00 is 1mm, then a stack of U$ 1.00 billion is 1000 km high.
    And a stack of U$ 1.00 trillion is 1 million km high. I guess it reaches all the way to heaven.

    I doubt there are enough trees in the world to make the paper needed to print U$ 1.00 to cover the the US government debt and even if they were, they would need thousands of printing presses working 24/7 for thousands of years just to print the debt.

    This constitutes a major financial crime to the unborn generations but worse is the trashing of the life-giving ecosystem, selfishness they will never forgive us for.

    How do you change course if you don’t have propulsion?

  3. NotAVeteranThough  September 24, 2015 at 12:39 am

    Sextant, that made me laugh.

    On a friendly side note, I do wish to provide a bit of negative feedback which I hope you will take well.

    SLOW DOWN.

    You’re obviously full of knowledge and you have a desperate need to convey it/wake people up.
    So you tend to spam mountains of information, unrequested, in a highly condensed format.
    This may not be the best way to convince people, as your posts could be interpreted as:

    ‘I’m not going to read all that text by that fanatic.’
    (Your formatting makes your posts highly recognizable… take this how you will)

    So I dare make a suggestion, instead of just pumping out information like a carpet bomber… try a more directed approach. If someone’s comment ‘gets you in the mood’ (silly phrasing, sorry) try this.

    Ask him/her, ‘We seem to have differing opinions, I have much material/knowledge that supports mine… what is the single most important thing that you base your opinion on, and I will give you mine.’

    That way you could engage in a conversation, working on the information the other has (and understands) and from there you can slowly and systematically destroy that persons believes and hopes 🙂

    (overly dramatic phrasing, sorry)

    See if you can reach more people that way?

    “Programs”
    We’re building software to administer insurance policies… but we are doing this ‘at cost’ !
    We’re starting to get traction with the big players, who are now wondering (started investigations) why they are currently paying so much for their software… We’re such rebels. 🙂

    “Tianjin was a nuke due to thousands of vaporized car engine + transmission blocks due to reaction of nuke radiation with Freon gas of car AIR CONDITIONERS ”
    – I actually read that comment… it made the wheels in my head turn and connect some other dots… Hubble space telescope……. Could never have been launched.
    I know you/someone said that all of nasa was a hoax, but I’ve not connected it to the Hubble…
    Fake or not.. it does make pretty pictures.

    I’ve been clicking though some youtubes and the evidence is overwhelming.

    It has also enforced a bit more my mindset:
    “If I can not physically see it happen in front of my nose… it’s entertainment.”

    I’m (pretty smart, top percentile-ish) Computer programmer without a formal education (in any of the fields you mention, but they were my classes in highschool).
    I just spend many, many hours soaking up information from the internet about, well mostly the current situation and how we got there.

    I’ve seen:
    Short change
    Engineers for 9/11 truth
    Putin’s speech on Oct 24, 2014 (Valdai)
    Most of the articles on VT in the last 6 months.
    (But VT does not always connect all the dots for us)

    Autism flew over my head once and gave me a little nudge (perhaps it was a vaccine I got when I was 8).
    As a result I have a heightened sense of morality/justice (hard time accepting/understanding (that) evil exits and people choose it) and a need to understand the things that interest me in high detail.

    An excellent article. Almost as good as this one by the same author:
    http://theinternationalreporter.org/2015/06/19/tpp-3-5-trillion-stolen-gold-price-rigging-colour-revolutions-and-hanging-out-with-brics/
    I’ve linked to both on my blog.
    Keep keepin’ them on their heels!

    Re.: “Gold, the real stuff, is re-emerging as sound and solid money (not to be confused with GLD certificates which are basically an IOU for gold that does not exist.)”

    I see no evidence of this whatever. And gold has “never” been so-called “sound money”. Maybe “solid” simple barter exchange stock … but never money.

    Money is “a promise to complete a trade”. This is what is always has been and always will be. It is created by traders getting trading promises certified. You securing a mortgage or car loan do this. It is destroyed by traders delivering on those promises. You, paying down your mortgage or car loan do this.

    The use of the words “mortgage” and “loan” in a properly managed process only mean record keeping. They don’t mean finding someone who has saved or some capitalist to back the trading promise. That is totally unnecessary and is a requirement imposed by those who profit by it.

    In a properly managed process, defaults are monitored and like interest collections made, thereby guaranteeing perpetual zero inflation. As with any trade, supply and demand for money is in perpetual balance in a properly managed process as described.

    Money simply allows simple barter exchange over time and space. Gold doesn’t do this. Gold is simple barter exchange where promise to deliver and delivery happen simultaneously … on the spot.

      I could not disagree with you more.
      Gold has financed wars, and Fiat currency ensures that people won’t have access to it. Two hundred years ago, an ounce of gold bought you a really nice suit, today the same applies. The price of gold rises and falls (mostly rises) but only because the value of currency changes. The value of gold is timeless. I believe the Constitution has something to say about this, as well.

    An excellent article that connects a lot of the dots. More of this fine work please.

    I have read many of your recent comments and you seem quite clearheaded and informed.

    So I’ve been picking up hints left and right that the towers were rigged to fall.. during construction.
    Could you point to some sources that corroborate this?

    I’ve read up on the Appollo/Space station ‘Hoax’… I agree, we never went there (at least not with any earthly technology). But what about them rovers (any/all of them)?

    What about the thing my sister told me yesterday that Jim Henson was knee deep in NWO and was perhaps even killed by them in the end?

    (Just some things where I have not been able to make my mind up, hope you can help)

    As Max Keiser said recently, the economy is not money, it is people.
