The real war: People vs. the Banks

Recessions, debt, energy crisis, inflation and wars… somehow it is all related, and it is related at a global level, impacting nearly all economies and markets. It all seems to be going rather badly for the “rules based global order,” or as some prefer to call it, “the empire of lies.”

Shock, after shock, after shock…

Last week, on Oct. 6, Kristalina Georgieva, IMF’s Managing Director gave a speech at the Georgetown University in Washington where she explained that the global economy, which was expected to recover strongly after the Covid 19 pandemic, experienced a “shock, after shock, after shock” instead, that it is now experiencing a “fundamental shift,” and that this shift could create a “dangerous new normal.” Georgieva thinks this can only be mitigated by “countries working together.”

We’re winning in Ukraine! Or maybe we’re not.

Part of the problem is the “senseless war” in Ukraine. For weeks now, as the groupthink went, the war has turned in the west’s favor and Ukraine has been winning. Nobody even bothers pretending any more that this war is between Russia and Ukraine: it is now overtly discussed as the war between Russia and the collective west. NATO’s Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg made this plain in yesterday’s press conference: “If Putin wins, that is not only a big defeat for the Ukrainians, but it will be the defeat, and dangerous, for all of us.” But not to worry, said Stoltenberg, “Ukraine has the momentum,” and “President Putin is failing in Ukraine.”

Last week, US 4-star General Jack Keane went on Fox Business to boast about Bidden administration’s awesome “investment” in Ukraine: “We have a $6 trillion budget… we’ve invested, and I mean, invested, $66 billion in Ukraine this year and that is like, 1.1% [of the budget] … So for $66 billion what we’re getting is Ukraine doing the fighting, they are literally destroying the Russian Army on the battlefield.” 

So apparently we’re winning and we can all relax – everything is awesome. Or maybe it isn’t. Last week, former US National Security Advisor, John Bolton published a revealing article that gives away a different mindset near the top of western command-and-control hierarchy. Bolton says that “the West still lacks a shared definition of ‘victory’ in Ukraine,” and that “everyone worries about the durability of Europe’s resolve…” But it was John Bolton’s Tweet promoting the article that was the most revealing: 

There it is: “There is no long-term prospect for achieving America’s critical, long-standing goal of peace and security in Europe without regime change in Russia.” What Bolton seems to be saying is that Putin has defeated the rules-based global order and that they can only reverse this defeat if they could remove Putin from power and replace him with some Juan Guaido who would hand them back their toys and their victory. Bolton then went on CBS to advocate for the assassination of Vladimir Putin.

I could be wrong but, between Ambassador Bolton, General Keane, Jens Stoltenberg, Kristalina Georgieva, as well as many others, it doesn’t seem that the empire’s leading minds are very confident about the way things are going. In fact, they all seem a bit incoherent in their statements and even panicked perhaps, as though they are sensing defeat.

It’s the banks, not Vladimir Putin

So then, what would be the “fundamental shift,” and the “dangerous new normal” that IMF’s Georgieva is worried about? I believe that the worry is that the rules-based global order is falling into a profound economic, social and political crisis that could be long and very severe. And even while we are all encouraged to come together and hate on Russia and Vladimir Putin, that’s not where this crisis emanated from. Rather, it emanated from the fraudulent monetary system that’s largely shaped our rules-based global order and which has had an impressive track record of incentivizing forever wars and generating chronic crises. 

Chronic crises, forever wars

We can trace the evolution of today’s monetary system back to the Bank of England. It was established in 1694 and over the following century (from 1701 to 1815), England waged fully 18 officially declared wars against her then rival power, France. Back then, the French were hated almost as much as the Russians are today. In 1833 the Parliament passed the Bank of England Act, granting the BOE monopoly on issuing the empire’s “legal tender” currency. Out of the remaining 67 years of the 19th century, Britain spent 32 years in recessions, depressions, bankruptcy or financial collapse including the 22-year long depression lasting from 1873 to 1896. This was while the British Empire was at the zenith of its power yet, like today it was “shock, after shock, after shock…”

Rather than waging never-ending wars, blowing up bridges and pipelines or assassinating Vladimir Putin, western powers would do better to focus on reforming our monetary system and embrace honest money. Even a miraculous military victory over Russia would do no more than delay the day of reckoning. In the meantime, the system would need to find a new enemy to fight more wars. That is a certainty. As Lord Acton said over a century ago, “The issue that has swept down the centuries and which will have to be fought sooner or later is the people versus the Banks.” The banks – not Russia nor Vladimir Putin!

P.S. By “the Banks,” I do not mean local banks and savings institutions but the international banking cartel and their Global Systemically Important Banks.

    I believe it would be in the best interest of the world if Putin wins. Russia, as an ally, would be much more beneficial than a victorious uber corrupt Ukraine/USA

    Russia is an enemy to be feared or an ally to trade with. You decide. Putin is not going to give up. So … really bad shit may happen soon,

    It’s all about the money, when it comes down to it. The use of the word “collateral” is interesting since that is how the American gov. sold the birth certificates of all Americans to the British crown to pay back our national debt owed to them by sending all our tax money to them since 1933. My dad was born in 1906, was a merchant marine whose route was NY to Cuba and Panama to Hawaii and back, and knew how the world works. He would drop hints at the dinner table so I got a sense of the world, if not the facts. He talked about Sudetanland all the time, although he was French by heritage. I think your presentation about 1938 was way beyond brilliant- and it leads to right here and now.

    Please note that when you sent an email confirmation to me, the acknowledgement button came in as a non-functioning graphic, not a button. In order to make it work, I had to extract the code and past it into the internet URL bar. And I got a message of confirmation. Apparently WordPress has sabotaged you and I would bet you are not getting the participation you have paid for because they cannot handle this simple function. I recommend that someone test this for you.

    Hi Alex,

    Just watched the Grand Deception and the US/UK allied war against Germany interview.

    is there a link to download the book, preferably the original text (and not the cleaned version)?

    Very interesting thanks Alex.

    As Michael Hudson describes the America hegemony is built on the need for war and extracting wealth and resources from those countries it deems ‘enemies’ that become the target of its military.

    This ‘business model’ is the one the EIC was founded upon and the crimes carried out by the company through its imposed famine and drug wars in the sub-continent are legion.

    As you allude the basis for all this was the imposition of the Venetian banking system first in Amsterdam and then through the glorious revolution.

    The ‘price’ for the revolution was the BoE and from that institution began the national debt and the bankers wars in lieu of that debt.
